Talking Head - Psycho Killer

I can't seem to face up to the facts
I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax
I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire
Psycho Killer

Qu'est-ce que c'est

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer

Qu'est-ce que c'est

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, away

You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
You're talking a lot, but you're not saying anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?

ABBA - Money, Money, Money

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay
Ain't it sad
And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me
That's too bad

Always sunny
In the rich man's world

Aha-ahaaa

All the things I could do
If I had a little money
It's a rich man's world

HOLYCHILD - Money all around

Make me talk or set me free
Tell me who I'm meant to be
Fake originality
Everyone is nothing

I have my money all around
Just take your clothes off, make me proud
I have my money all around
You look me up I'm crawling down

Sisters of Mercy - Marian



In a sea of faces, in a sea of doubt
In this cruel place your voice above the maelstrom
In the wake of this ship of fools I'm falling further down
If you can see me, Marian, reach out and take me home


Was ich kann und was ich könnte
(What I can do and what I could do)
Weiß ich gar nicht mehr
(I just don't know anymore)
Gib mir wieder etwas Schönes
(Give me something beautiful again)
Zieh mich aus dem Meer
(Pull me from the sea)

Ironically, the song's original artist, Bob Dylan, used "Vivien" instead of "Marion." Mr. Dylan was quite displeased that Peter, Paul, and Mary changed his lyrics.

Nine Inch Nails - Piggy

hey pig
yeah you
hey pig piggy pig pig pig
all of my fears came true
black and blue and broken bones
you left me here; I'm all alone
my little piggy needed something new
nothing can stop me now
'cause i don't care anymore
nothing can stop me now
'cause i don't care

Bzzzt yourself you dimwitted alcholic liar!

Dirty Sanchez - Replicunt

Not real
Can't feel
Stainless Steel

Vacant stare
Unaware
I don't care

Remain numb
And play dumb

Saw you cheat
I'm obsolete
So hit delete

Snip the wire
Put out the fire
You're a liar

Cyber-faux
Fiber-gosh
System-crush

1-5-8-9
Something survived
I am alive

A memory
Of you and me
Is all I see

Remove my face
And find that place
And hit erase

Pet Shop Boys - My October Symphony

Shall we remember
December instead?
Or worry about February?
Mourn our war-torn dead
Never seeing red?

Shall I rewrite or revise
My October symphony?
Or as an indication
Change the dedication
From revolution to revelation?

Poe - Hey Pretty


Hey pretty Don't you wanna take a ride with me?
Through my world
Hey pretty
Don't you wanna kick and slide
Through my world

Well I've got a mind full of wicked designs
I've got a non-stop hole in my head-imagination
I'm in a building that has two-thousand floors
And when they all fall down I think you know it's you they're fallin' for
I can't forget I am a soul architect
I built the shadows here
I built the growl in the voice I fear
You add it up but to do better than that
You've got to follow me

The Police - Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

Dreaming of the Queen - Pet Shop Boys

For there were no more lovers left alive
No one had survived
So there were no more lovers left alive
And that's why love had died

:? Erm... not sure how the last two are linked. You'll have to explain that one.

But given those lyrics...

Joe --> Poe --> The "Po Po" .
You'll just have to explain this tenuous link if you want a reply of how my song links to the 1 above yours.

She - Monkees

She, she told me that she loved me,
And like a fool I believed her from the start.
She, she said she'd never hurt me,
But then she turned around and broke my heart

Why am I standing here,
Missing her and wishing she were here.
She only did me wrong;
I'm better off alone.

She, she devoured all my sweet love,
Took all I had and then she fed me dirt.
She, she laughed while I was cryin'.
It was such a joke to see the way it hurt.

The Perfect drug - NIN

I see the truth when I'm all stupid-eyed
The arrow goes straight through my heart
Without you everything just falls apart
My blood just wants to say hello to you
My soul is so afraid to realize
How very little there is left of me
And I want you

So... that's "God Thank You Woman" by Culture Club (Boy George)? OK.
Culture Club (Boy George) wrote:God thank you woman
Thank you thank you
For the joy that you give to me
Thanks for the joy that you've given me
I want you to know I believe in your song
And rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You've helped me along
Makin' me strong

Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and...
