Ignorance is Bliss by spOOn

I don't want to know anything
Ignorance is bliss is this
Please don't tell me everything
This is ignorance is bliss

You want me to understand
Why things have to be like this
I don't want to understand
Why things have to be like this

Can things hurt much more than this?
I ask you please
Tell me no more today
Because ignorance is bliss

Ignorance is Bliss -- Rone Rivendale style

Go home girl you be so ugly
Let me correct that you so fugly
Break a mirror with that face
De-evolution of the human race
Scaring little kids everywhere ya go
Halloween is over go shave that fro

She doesn't know it
No she doesn't know it
She thinks she is pretty but
Ignorance is bliss

Zits and pimples all over ya arms
Buck teeth that belong in a barn
Belly hanging out your shirt
And leg fat bulging out your skirt
Comb your hair just once this year
Birds will start to nest I fear

She doesn't know it
No she doesn't know it
She thinks she is pretty but
Ignorance is bliss

You may be beautiful inside
but looking at you makes me hide
please don't take this the wrong way

Ignorance Is Bliss by Melvin

When you know (When you know)
Just a little too much
You just might lose your cool
And then bring up your lunch

In the dark (In the dark)
Your mind’s safe and secure
Everything looks the same
There’s no light but it’s pure

Tell me what got in your head
My friend, you’re drawing rash conclusions
Don’t speak too soon

When you feel (When you feel)
There’s a breach in the trust
There’s an urge to withdraw
And protect what you must

But you know (But you know)
Everything looks like shit
When you know a whole bunch
About just a small bit

Tell me what got in your mind
My friend, you’re drawing false conclusions
Don’t speak too soon

You’re the one who should know
It’s really so, what they say
Life’s a big cliché and ignorance is bliss

Tell me what got in your head
My friend, it’s such a deep contusion
Don’t speak too soon

You should know (You should know)
That I’m still fond of you
And there’s rhyme and good reason
For the things that I do

I could tell (I could tell)
You the things that I see
But the more that you know
All the more that you’ll hate me

Tell me what got in your mind
My friend, you suffer grand illusions
Don’t speak too soon

You’re the one who should know
It’s really so, what they say
Life’s a big cliché and ignorance is bliss

The Seamus Collective

We're all gonna die
Am I the first to tell you
You know that it's no lie
I know that you don't want to
But it goes for all mankind
And I'm sure that includes you
There isn't any way to buy another day
So just look the other way

We got the power of the sun
Connected to a trigger
And we'll burn anyone
Who might itch our trigger finger
We'll build the biggest gun
Just to point it at each other
We'll settle up the score by accident or war
There'll be no one left to mourn

I can see the edge of the falls
The drop will come in the end after all
Can we still hold hands through the quickening pace
Float on our backs with the sun on our face

Do you believe in hell
Or do you think it's funny
We made it up ourselves
But now it's really coming
It seems so hard to tell
Everybody seems so keen to bring it on
As if nobody cared and no one's really scared
You'll miss you when you're gone

If you're getting impatient and you just can't wait
For that asteroid to do the job in one day
We're headed over the edge anyway
From supervolcanoes or climate change
Disaster could strike through no fault of our own
But I've got a feeling that's deep in my bones
That we'll finish this dance in a mushroom cloud
Cause we are determined to snuff ourselves out
Or else die trying!

Yeah, hear me when I say
That if you're still inclined to
Look the other way
And let your ignorance blind you
But until that frightening day
When you really look around you
You're better off asleep just dancing in the streets
Yeah I'll be right behind you

I guess it's really true your ass is in the stew
No matter what you [do]
I'm late for the Winnie the Pooh convention.

Ignorance is Bliss - By - Jolly Roger

You've thrown away all your problems
Cause there's no easy way to stop em
I think that you thought that this was over
But your life just keeps getting slower

Every single everyday occurance
Has left you alone with no assurance
That anybody will be found who
Will be there when you need some around you

And I'm amazed that you throw it all away
And don't think twice for your friends and family
And I despise how you pull it all inside
And in your blissful ignorance you are happy.

You seem to think that this has helped you
And everybody who's around you
But the thing that you don't comprehend
Is that people really want to be your friend

You've locked yourself inside this shell
How it'll turn out I guess that time will tell
But I think the one thing that you missed
Is that often ignorance feels like bliss.

[worst guitar solo ever]

And I'm amazed that you throw it all away
And don't think twice for your friends and family
And I despise how you pull it all inside
And in your blissful ignorance you are happy.

And I'm amazed that you throw it all away
And don't think twice for your friends and family
And I despise how you pull it all inside
And in your blissful ignorance you are happy.

But I think the one thing that you missed
Is that often ignorance feels like bliss.

Ignorance Is Bliss
The Darkest Daves

Music and lyrics by Dave L
Concept by Dave M
Dave B was there. he did stuff. no.. really.
-----------------------------------------------------

sunny days, sweeping the clouds away
this story starts where the air is sweet
bert and ernie are two best friends living on sesame street

unrequited love isnt anything new
but poor old bert doesnt know what to do
he wants to take his best friend on a magical journey
all he wants to do each day is puppet fuck ernie

ernies best friend bert is hot for his puppet hole
berts so gay for him but ernie just doesnt know
its always nice to be liked but in a case like this
ernie would agree that ignorance is bliss

bathtime fun for ernie can never hurt
when rubber ducky friend is just a dressed up bert
touch and scrub and laugh and rub until hes clean
bathtime fun for ernie makes berty cream

bert tucks ernie into bed, but not all is what it seems.
bert doesn't know why he wants to make these awful scenes
must make sure he's tucked in tight, we dont want him to leave
sometimes Ernie has bad dreams. Of sweat and blood and busted seams.

ernies best friend bert is hot for his puppet hole
berts so gay for him but ernie just doesnt know
its always nice to be liked but in a case like this
ernie would agree that ignorance is bliss

ernies best friend bert is hot for his puppet hole
berts so gay for him but ernie just doesnt know
its always nice to be liked but in a case like this
ernie would agree that ignorance is bliss
I am a failure as a dave and as a human being!!

1933 field recording of Ignorance is Bliss

I drove uptown down Venice Avenue
Ran over a man with my new Terraplane
I said how can I help you sir, what can I say?
He said say no more
Ignorance is Bliss
Don’t remind me, maybe it’ll all go away

I had a brand new hookah, shiny as a pin
We were firing it up when from the corner of my eye
I saw gendarmerie, bluer than the sky
I said don’t look up now
Ignorance is Bliss
If you hit this quick now at least you’ll go to jail high.

We don’t use condoms, we like the way it feels
We ride bareback fool speed ahead
She sez we’re gonna have a baby, he’s gonna have a briss
Can you think of a name?
I said we’ll call him Ignorance
Next time if it’s a girl we’ll have to name her Bliss

Ignorance is Bliss! If I was any more blissful I’d die.

Ignorance Is Bliss

By Steve Durand

I was on the wrong track from the start
I always thought the goal was to be smart
I felt like such a fool
After all I learned in school
A brainy guy could never get a kiss

Then I found out what the girls preferred
They'd rather date a cool guy than a nerd
It turns out that the key
Is your popularity
I think that maybe ignorance is bliss

So I dropped out of the chess club
and the debating team
Higher education had no part
In my new scheme

From that moment onward
I never cracked a book
'Cause it doesn't matter what you know
It matters how you look

Since this new philosophy I found
I've dated every chick for miles around
To be happy you don't gotta be no rocket scientist
That's why I say that ignorance is bliss

Since I took that pathway
My life is worry free
I wallow in a pit
Of ignorance and apathy

I really don't no nuthin'
'bout the state of world affairs
You can ask me what I think
But I don't know so I don't care

Somehow I ended up a big dumb slob
I'm stuck in a low-paying dead-end job
Who ever would have dreamed that things would come to this
When I decided ignorance is bliss

i didnt know it was a gay bar
i didnt know someone could dance like that
i didnt know what would happen
behind the closed door of your studio flat

put a finger to her lips and beckoned me inside
trust me, i know what i'm doing here baby, she sighed
just you lie back and enjoy the ride

ignorance is bliss
ignorance is bliss
ignorance is bliss

i thought she may have had a secret
her husky voice had a mysterious lilt
her facial hair was slightly scratchy
her upper body was quite powerfully built
ahhh...probably best not to think about it

ignorance is bliss
ignorance is bliss
ignorance is bliss

put a finger to her lips and beckoned me inside
trust me, i know what i'm doing here baby, she sighed
dont ask no questions get told no lies

Lyrics

Postby Ross » Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:37 am

By Ross Durand

I don’t read the paper anymore
I step right over as I’m headed out the door
I’m sure it’s all the same-old crap that I’ve read in there before
And I’m happy…..
Cause I don’t read the papers anymore

I don’t want to know what’s goin’ on
I don’t get no updates when I turn my PC on
Don’t even go into the lunch room, till everyone else is gone
And I’m happy……
Cause I don’t want to know what’s goin’ on

And everything is hunky dory just as far as I can tell
And that’s the way I like it
I don’t need to be reminded that our basket’s gone to hell
So I turn my head, avert my eyes, smile as I walk by
– and I’m happy

I don’t watch the TV anymore
It seems like spreading misery, is all that box is for
And I can’t do nothin’ bout it and burns me to the core
So I’m happy ….
If I just don’t watch the TV, don’t read the papers, I don’t know what’s goin’ on ---- anymore

Ignorance is bliss, not knowing's what I miss,
Mystery and false pretense are what brought me to this conclusion:

The more I've come to know you, the more I've come to find
That the more that I reach out to you, the further I'm left behind,
Your time has left me nothing less than nothing at all.

I sit behind this box and strings, I think of all the empty things
That didn't mean that much to me, 'til now.
I by far liked the things I knew and, it wasn't much but at least I,
I knew it was true.

Meaning meaning
is so deceiving
we strive to find the deeper meaning
ignorance is bliss

Theme statements and
symbolism

What meaning’s in them?â€

"Ignorance Is Bliss
by Paco del Stinko

Chorus
If ignorance is bliss
Then why am I feeling like this?
Maybe I found out
Something that I shouldn't have
I would smile from ear to ear
The same grin as every year
Now my joy is gone
And I can no longer laugh

ha ha ha ha haaa

Verse 1
Sometimes my vision gets blurry
I lose a bit of focus in one eye
There is no need to hurry
I can still see you if I try

Chorus
If ignorance is bliss
Then why am I feeling like this?
Maybe I found out
Something that I shouldn't have
I would smile from ear to ear
The same grin as every year
Now my joy is gone
And I can no longer laugh

Ha ha

Verse 2
I see you on the phone
I hear the laugh I used to hear
When night comes and I'm left all alone
What I can't see becomes all too clear

Bridge
I know that I'm not too bright
But I might care to be enlightened
Come into my arms
I'll do you no harm, there's no need to be frightened

(solo)

Chorus
If ignorance is bliss
Then why am I feeling like this?
Maybe I found out
Something that I shouldn't have
I would smile from ear to ear
The same grin as every year
Now my joy is gone
And I can no longer laugh
No longer laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaugh

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
