Oh My Soul lyrics

Postby Toby Roktot » Tue Jan 17, 2017 4:12 pm

I'll start
(oh yeah...I'll be sure to pm the fightmaster, regarding my submission...)
Oh yeah, again...we used to say 'Frisco' when we were playing the Winterland concerts....times change...I haven't...much

oh, my soul
toby roktot 1/17
LONG DARK EYELASHES, BATTED LIKE FROLICSOME BUTTERFLIES
SHY MOON DANCING, ACROSS A BLACK VELVET SKY
LIFE'S MORE THAN KNOWING BUT TODAY, JUST GLAD TO KNOW
HELD ME WITH HER EYES...... OH, MY SOUL

BENEFICIAL FRIENDS, DO WE NEED TRUE LOVE
YEAH, LOVE ISN'T JUST FOR POETS AND DOVES
MY HANDS WERE SLOWLY SWEATING, LOSING CONTROL
LIPS OF SENSUAL INSOUCIANCE...OH, MY SOUL

MINUTES FLY PAST HOURS, PAST DAYS, BEYOND ALL TIME
LOVE SO INTIMATE AND INFINITE, MEMORIES, HARD TO FIND
A TIME BETWEEN DOG AND WOLF, NEITHER DAY NOR NIGHT
EYES, FIERY, REFUSING TO LET GO....................

TODAY IS ENOUGH.....OH MY SOUL

Oh My Soul
by Lichen Throat

Oh my soul
Is uneasy.
When I think about all I haven’t done.
When I see
Such injustice
Perpetrated with a gavel or a gun.
To the woman crying face-down on Central Avenue
While I drove right on by, without seeing what I could do,
I offer an apology I know you’ll never hear
And vaguely tell myself that I’ll do more this coming year.
Don’t dry your tears,
‘Cause I won’t help you this year,
And probably not the next.
I won’t be volunteering
Or writing out big checks.
I’m so perplexed.

Oh my soul
Is uneasy
When I see the suffering on every street.
And a guy
At each offramp
Begging in the snow and in the sleet.
I sit inside my car and read his tattered cardboard sign,
Which says that he’s a veteran, returned from the front line.
I’m not sure I believe it, but that surely doesn’t mean
That he deserves to spend his life malnourished and unclean.
It’s just obscene.
But I won’t help you this year,
And probably not the next.
I’ve got the empathy of a
Tyrannosaurus rex.
I’m so distressed.

“Do more! Do more!” is what I tell myself.
But I just drink my tea beside my custom-made bookshelf.

Oh my soul
Is uneasy
When I hear the wicked rumors in the air.
People tell
One another
Blatant lies that only bring despair.
I should be out telling truths, setting liars’ pants afire,
Gathering up wood for these false prophets’ funeral pyre,
Or penning manifestoes to effect a golden age,
But not just kicking back inside my quiet gilded cage.
Where is my rage?
‘Cause I won’t help you this year,
And probably not the next.
When will I do something more
Than offer my regrets?
I just forget,
Yeah, I forget.

I left my home
in the early morn'
in quite a rush
as I put my shoes on

wish that I'd paid more attention
instead of trying to eat
for I only put one shoe
on my two feet

oh my sole it's bleeding and raw
oh my soul if I only saw
what I'd done

I left my home (again)
in the early morn'
to feed my family
the fruits of the sound
I sat and I cast my lines
and I prayed for good luck
but I only caught one fish
and I feel like a shmuck

oh my sole it's not nearly enough
oh my soul tonight's family meal
will be rough

{screaming guitar solo}

oh my soul...

Oh My Soul
by WreckdoM

Hey! I'm a ghost!
I used to be alive
Now I hang around your house
I see you doing things
when you think that you're alone
Talking to your cat
Sing along with songs
Arguing about your bill
Staring at porn
So many strange and funny things
I never get bored
I'll never get caught
You will never know
Oh my soul

Hey! I'm a ghost!
Anytime I like
I can meddle in your realm
I can slam your door
I can spill your beer
Watch you while you brush
Then re-tangle your hair
I can move your pillow
Whisper in your ear
I can spook your cat
So it trips you down the stairs
I'll never get caught
This is me from now on
Oh My Soul

Berkeley Social Scene

It hurts
And when you explain it hurts even more
Keep spewing that bile
Until it covers the floor
I won’t clean it up no
I won’t clean it up

Oh My Soul
We’re lost down in this rabbit hole
We’ve lost every shred of control
Oh My Soul
Save me with Rock and Roll
Tell me it will fill the hole

It sucks
And it will only get even worse
Keep standing when they knock you down
Until they give up trying
I won’t back down no
I won’t back down

Oh My Soul
We’re lost down in this rabbit hole
We’ve lost every shred of control
Oh My Soul
Save me with Rock and Roll
Tell me it will fill the hole

OH MY SOUL
Micah Sommersmith

Oh my soul, oh my soul
Will we find the missing piece that’s going to make you whole?

Mr. Clever, huh? Greatest ever, huh?
Could have moved the world with the right lever, huh?
Was always now or never, now I guess it’s never, huh?
Missed your shot at entering the 27 Club
Missed your shot at greatness, it was not amazing
And you cannot replace the chances that you failed to take
You played it safe, made small mistakes
Took tiny risks, shook your tiny fists
Now you sit unsated at your empty plate
Can’t quit if you don’t play the game, hey

Oh my soul, oh my soul
Can we try for just a little bit of self-control?
Oh my soul, oh my soul
Did you think that you were really going to play that role?

I know, I understand
Count your blessings, bird in the hand
But I can’t be thankful on command
I’m not a saint, I’m just a man
And I thought my life would be bigger than this
Thought glory might come quicker than this
Get a little bit pissed when I think about it
So maybe it’s best to forget about it
And just live the life that’s been given to me
Never be no captain of industry
Never see my face staring back at me
From a thousand shining TV screens

Oh my soul, oh my soul
Did you think that you were really going to play that role?
Oh my soul, oh my soul
Will we find the missing piece that’s going to make you whole?

Balance Lost

Another winter morning's born
The house is cold and curtains drawn
The agencies have shut their doors
I'm keeping scores
I watch the buses leave and then return
I got no more fuel to burn
When will we see the sun
A change gon' come

Oh my soul, I've lost control
I found James Brown, I can't go home
Agaiaiaiaiaian
In my life I can't feel fine
Unless I'm listening to the 45

The time it always seems to short
Relight a candle
Boxes stacked up in the hall
It's hard to handle
A melody to get me through
A lyric I can sing to you
The hard times always last too long
What's going on?

Oh my soul, I've lost control
I found James Brown, I can't go home
Agaiaiaiaiaian
In my life I can't feel fine
Unless I'm listening to the 45

there was a boy, he was sixteen years old - he had nowhere to go except for where he was.
He felt so alone and so far gone, so he listend to his radio and stayed home
and he said

Oh, oh my soul
please dont let me go, carry me through this road
dont let me go dont let me go, from all ive ever known

she carry's her head on her shoulders, her books on her back
as she tries to stay with it and get by with some tact
the weight of everything, each day wearing her down
as she tries for her dreams but feels they'll never be found and she says

Oh, oh my soul
please don't go, away.
Carry me along this road and keep me whole,
keep me whole
the days and years it took, all spent for one goal
to get to a future I may never know

oh, oh my soul
please dont let me go, please dont let me go
dont let me slip away from everything i've ever known
give me the strength to carry on

oh, oh my soul
please dont let me go please dont let me go,
carry me along this road
dont let me slip away, dont let me slip away.

Nick Soma - Oh My Soul

In an insane asylum of unspecified past times, Sister Mary and Sister Patricia are getting more and more worried about the sorry condition young Davey Miller is in. While the two Nurses are pondering whether the Patient would benefit from a good old lobotomy, the creatures of the Netherworld are trying to persuade him to make the final leap into their land before the Doctors, intending to sever Davey from the Netherworld for all eternity, manage to perform the operation.

-------------------------------------------------

Sister Mary:
Davey didn't eat his lunch today.
He's been acting in a most unsettling way.

Sister Patricia:
He's been wandering his own domain.
How can we get hold of his mind again?

Bogeyman:
Young Earthling, we salute you.
Welcome back here in the Netherworld!
It's been a while since we last saw your face round here.
The end is nigh, my friend,
You have to be aware.
You're on your own as you must face your biggest fear.

The Patient:
Oh, my soul
Caught inside the echoes of a fading life
As another world is calling
No control, my spirit lies there broken
And time won't heal my wounds
Once the damage has been done
I won't be whole, they'll tear my soul wide open
And where once I'd fly
Then I'll be only falling down

Sister Mary:
I increased the dosage, but to no avail.
Poor young Davey, trapped inside his mental jail!

Sister Patricia:
Call the doctors, they always know best.
They'll help young Davey put his nightmare to a rest.

Nemain (of Morrígan fame):
Forever – just a word;
Reality is relative to your belief.
Have you made up your mind yet? – As the day has come.
There's something far more terrifying
Than the farthest reaches of the Netherworld.
They're coming for you, there's nowhere to run!

The Patient:
Oh, my soul
Somewhere in the flicker of the neon light
Another life is calling
So you toll your bell upon the mountain
But I cannot be free
Once the damage has been done
The snow will fall, and I'll just sit here counting
In a state of apathy
Frozen, numb, and falling down

Sister Mary:
The only way out of his situation
Is to perform the operation
Now or never, that step is overdue.

Sister Patricia:
I say it's a move in the right direction;
We must be first to cut the connection.
Call the doctors to end what he's going through.

Melusina:

I'll wrap you in a loom of sensual delight.
My siren song will keep you warm all through the night.
Hush my baby, I'll dry all your tears,
Softly I'll caress you like I did in all these years.

Vlad:
Young man, I shall remind you a decision must be made;
Escape before your precious brain gets under the blade.
Now the sun is rising, you decide which path to take -
Don't ponder for too long when your heart is at stake.

Bogeyman:
Across the Styx he travels, far from the light of the sun.

Melusina:
Back in the Netherworld, here in his mind he lives on.

Vlad:

Congratulations, you made it out of your state.

Nemain:
To stay in the Netherworld shall be your ultimate fate.

Sister Mary:
He's gone, I'm afraid we have been just a little too late.
I hate to say it, but we hesitated too long.

Sister Patricia:
To stay there, wherever he is, is his ultimate fate.
We waited, debated, now I'll plainly state we were wrong.

The Patient:

Oh, my soul
Dancing through the caverns
Delivered from its earthly chains.

(ooh)
im trying hard to keep
my shit together
its never easy but
its getting better
i lost my soul in a
devastating storm
now im on my way
i will carry on

and i dont know where
my journey will take me
but im sure that
someones gonna save me

chorus:
oh my soul
carry my across the river
that divides me in my head
oh my heart
been torn apart completely
im just glad that its still beating
oh my soul
ill carry on.

(ooh)
now its the third time
they took me to the clinic
cause i forgot to
go and see my shrink
been smoking pot so
they're not really listening
but i don't care anymore
i'll go home

and i don't know if
the meds that they gave me
im not sure
if the're helping at all
and i don't know where
my journey will take me
but know that the race
is still on
come to the dark side.
