Nur Ein X - Standing on the Edge

Postby josh » Wed Apr 15, 2015 12:58 pm

(Verse 1)
Drowning in the deep blue sea
Thoughts all float away
No there is no reason to
Swim after them

Birds are flying over me
Fish are nibbling at my feet
I can understand them now
They speak with no sound
They tell me their stories
Their tales as old as time

(Chorus:)
I'm standing on the edge
Toes are dipped in the divine
Tell me Mr. Facco
Are you ready to lose your mind?

(Verse 2:)
Words have lost their meaning
Sound and color dance as one
Time is being chased off by the waves

Water is surrounding me
Wash me 'til I'm nothing
I, I'm dying
I, I'm drowning

(Chorus)

(Instrumental Bridge)

(Chorus/Ending)

Are you ready to take that step?

Standing On The Edge - Paco del Stinko

Standing on the edge
Got one foot over
Is it time to forget
Or look back over my shoulder

I'm standing on the edge between Paco and me
I don't know if I'm staying I don't know if I'll leave

Should I give myself a hand or
Let me go


I'm Charlie in the box on the Island of Misfit Toys
I don't know if I'll make it the Bumble always destroys

Should I give myself a hand or
Let me go


I crawl up for a peek, scared to stand up tall
I feel all shaky and weak, and I fear I may fall
But still I look down, there's no looking back
Down and deep into the abyss and drown
Erasing all of my past

Paco once was strong and Charlie once was weak
Are they over the edge and gone - Is there anything left to see

Should I give myself a hand or
Let me go


Standing on the edge
Got one foot over
One more step and gone...
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Standing on the edge - Carlo Bruno Jr.

The most dangerous
of singing a Carlo Bruno song
is trying to imitate
the sound of that old silver goat from outer space

Some people know,
other people do not want to know
If you still want to sing
and you don't forget Carlo,
it only means you love to be on the cutting edge

Nick Soma - Standing on the Edge

Heavens open up each time
I'm standing on the edge
For no apparent reason why

What was I thinking? To go there,
To fall down and dissolve?
Why couldn't I just vanish in the sky?

Why, when the chlorinated brine
Calls on me every time
Too much for me
Why, tell me why am I confined
To the laws of gravity?
What was on my mind?
Oh, I'm standing on the edge again this time,
Standing on the edge this time

Hell gates open up each time
She's standing on the edge
Her heart is beating louder than a double bass drum

Lost inside his own world, he is
Standing on the edge
And everything he feels is the sweet sedation

Why did they have to go up there?
Some may say they just don't care,
They fall down and dissolve.
Where is the switch inside their mind?
Do you think they'll stand in line?
Desires can evolve,
And they are standing on the edge tonight, mmmmhhh,
Standing on the edge tonight.

Lost in the show
And everything is full of light
Giant roaring crowd
Ready for the stage dive

Why did I have to go up there?
Some may say I just don't care,
I fall down and dissolve.
Why does the chlorinated brine
Call on me every time?
Desires don't evolve.
And I'm standing on the edge tonight, oh,
Mr. Soma is standing on the edge tonight

Chucky chews the chocolate chips
soon he sails on secret ships

the stars ripple between breathing black
you lost his mind and he won't give it back

he's standing on the edge of his bed
believing he's floating in space
truly it's only in his head
truly it's only in his head

he's standing on the edge of his bed
believing he's floating in space
truly it's only in his head
truly it's only in his head
truly we're only in your head.

Standing on Oheo Bridge
Watch the dark green water flow
Sixty feet below me
In a small pool rimmed with lava rock
Friends say "You can back out, Jon
You don't have to jump if you're scared"
I climb the concrete railing and I stare at the horizon

Standing on the edge
One small step and gravity takes over
Got my arms spread wide
Frightened smile
Stepping off the edge
Slam the water over thirty miles an hour
Fingers brushing moss as I go under
I'm so glad I took the leap and didn't stay
Standing on the edge

Woman in a pale blue dress
Walks in moonlight thru the garden
She wants a romantic fool
To play Ceilito Lindo
Friends say "You can back out, Jon
You don't have to jump if you're scared
I grab a cheap acoustic
And the biggest black sombrero

Standing on the edge
One small step and gravity takes over
Got my arms spread wide
Frightened smile
Stepping off the edge
Heart is racing more than ninety miles an hour
Oh, my mouth's so dry, I can barely sing
I'm so glad I took the leap and didn't stay
Standing on the edge

She said come down from that balcony
She said she was talking theoretically
But when she finally got over the shock
She still said "Yes"
She still said "Yes"

Standing on the Edge
by Touched By "Touched By An Angel"

Verse 1
I was holding back
holding back my love
Now I’m standing on
standing on the edge
So I’m looking up
looking up above
And I’m jumping off
jumping off the ledge

Chorus
I was touched by “Touched By An Angel”
And I was saved by “Saved By The Bell”
Now I have to stop living my life
Like an after-school special in Hell

Verse 2
I gotta let go
let go of my fears
And start moving on
moving on to better days
I hope you come
hope come along
There’s no telling where
telling where we will go

Chorus
I was touched by “Touched By An Angel”
And I was saved by “Saved By The Bell”
Now I have to stop living my life
Like an after-school special in Hell

Bridge
I’m very very very very very very very very
very very very very sooooooorrrrrrrryy
And I swear, I swear, I swear, I swear
I swear, I swear, I won’t do that again

Chorus
I was touched by “Touched By An Angel”
And I was saved by “Saved By The Bell”
Now I have to stop living my life
Like an after-school special in Hell

Chorus
I was touched by “Touched By An Angel”
And I was saved by “Saved By The Bell”
Now I have to stop living my life
Like an after-school special in Hell

Like an after-school special in Hell

Standing on the Edge - Boffo Yux Dudes

Standing on the Edge
We're jumping off the ledge
We'll drive a wedge into your funny bone.

I hear that Pun a commin.
Round the bend.
It's a drubbin' for our
reputation again

We're the Boffo Yux Dudes
So we know we're screwed
'Cause of our attitude
At least we're not lewd
Though we play in the nude
We haven't yet been sued...

Standing on the Edge
We're crouched behind your hedge
When you come home you'll find that you can't hide

You grouse about our tunes
But if you read the runes
You might find something deeper lurking inside

1000 times we're off
We're gonna make mistakes`
But to hit the mark once then
We'll do what it takes

But it's a conundrum
To be seen as scum
So not to bang the drum
Though we may seem dumb
We're always willing to scrum
And find a tune you can hum

We're standin on the edge. And we can't decide a side
Should we go for all the pathos, and keep the humor deep inside?
Naaaaahh.....

Standing on the Edge
We're jumping off the ledge
We'll drive a wedge into your funny bone.

Standing on the Edge
We're crouched behind your hedge
When you come home you'll find that you can't hide

You grouse about our tunes
But if you read the runes
You might find something deeper lurking inside

Standing on the Edge
Standing on the Edge
Standing on the Edge

Standing on the Edge
by Rabid Garfunkel

Summer days
Summer days and winter nights
Dice rolls
Down the cliff's eye

Standing on the edge
Standing on the edge of death and paradise
Blue rose
In a red sky

Holiday
Funeral
Say your prayers
You'd better run

Come and play
Come out and play
Out all day
Play the sun away

Standing on the edge
Standing on the edge of death and paradise
Dice rolls
Down the cliff's eye

You'd better run, Rabid run
You'd better run, Rabid run
You'd better run, Rabid run
Run Rabid, run
Run Rabid, run
Run Rabid, run
Run Rabid, run
Run Rabid, run

Standing on the Edge
by the Cavedwellers

Verse 1

We watch the shadows on the wall
They are as real as anything at all
I bet I know what we’ll see next
I think I’ve mastered natures test

Chorus 1

If you wanna get together
Come on over, we’re the Cavedwellers
All we hear and all we see
Forms the fashion of our reality
We’re looking forward, again today
In the cave that’s the only way
In the return of the escapee
We have a chance to be set free

Verse 2

He tells us things aren’t as they seem
Our isolation is a kind of dream
The shadows are not built to last
They only exist because they’re cast

Chorus 2

Cave dwellers standing on the edge
between the cave and the greater knowledge
I don’t like much, what we’re learnin’
I never knew my head needed turnin’
I see the fire, still in the cave
But on the outside I see the rays
He’s called "Solaris", and I must meet him
He’s very sunny, and I have questions

Bridge

Standing on the edge of
understanding and a nice view
My mind is full wonder
while the Plebs still have their virtues

Verse 3

I approached the one they call "the Sun"
He was very warm, and full of fun
I told him of my tale of woe
He furled his brow and asked “what’s a shadow?”

Chorus 3

When you put it all together
We're no different than cave dwellers
If you wanna know what gives
I’m gonna tell you “The Kraken Lives”
If you’ve heard of this occurrence
It is the Worldly Self-Assurance
If you want a mix that’s clean
The Berkeley Social Scene

Outro

Standing on the edge of
Understanding on the edge of
Understanding on the edge of
Understanding on the edge of
Understanding on the edge of
Understanding on the edge

DJ RANGER DEN*
~an attempt at Lyrical Transcription of the Shocking Events of the Evening~
(ft. minor Characters from the 'Goodbye Monster' Cathedral Singers)
.......
Standing on the edge of a black hole
is not a good idea
(it's rather selfish, isn't it?)

"Couldn't you at least have brought a casserole?
the kind with the potato chips on top?"
"Or when in doubt just make a dessert."

Instead of Standing on the Edge of a black hole.
(a black hole...)

Who can Escape the black hole?**
"DJ RANGER DEN can escape the black hole! ....
{etc, general fanfare***}"

Standing on the edge.... (sigh)

{song attemps to regain control.****}

.........SOME FOOTNOTES
*Den being one of my nicknames and "DJ Ranger Den" my "Official Songfight Contest-ing Name"
**technically, the mysterious space object G2 which is not a dust cloud but perhaps a binary star which fused together and escaped the large black hole at the Milky Way's center. Now I'm saying I that I can escape a black hole, as well as being able to cook. These are bold claims. Nur Ein.
***IN WHICH lies are told because I've never written a song about cheese, although I have about desserts......
****fails. sorry, guys.

Standing on the Edge - Frankie Big Face

"My name is Francis Soyer
But people call me Psycho"

My name is Frank
My name is Frank
Don't call me Francis
My name is Frank

I'm on the edge
I'm on the edge
That's where I'm standing
Right on the edge

My name is Frank
My name is Frank
Don't call me Francis
My name is Frank

"Any of you guys call me Francis...
...and I'll kill you."

Don't look now but he's standing on the edge
His roof's come off and he's hanging by a thread
Don't touch his stuff
He's not just acting tough
He has a gun and he's going to kill you dead

My name is Frank
My name is Frank
Don't call me Francis
My name is Frank

Balance Lost

Another man consigned to history
Standing on the edge of the mezzanine
You seem to hesitate visibly
Some doubts in your parachute
Left a mark on the ground where you were found
What's left of your legacy?
Was your balance lost or did you leap?
Standing on the edge of mortality

Name check = Adam (lead singer)

Broken promise, a heart deceived
Adam stumbled, in his greed
Hope is lost, there's a price to pay
Can't return, there's no other way

Broken bridge, and an endless gap
Listened to lies, meant to trap
Working hard, with sweat upon his face
To survive, this must embrace

Standing on the edge, staring off into infinity
Consequence changed life, into this new reality

Standing on the edge, and looking for a better day
Crying out in pain, there has to be another way

(repeat verse 1)

Standing on the Edge

A1:
Staring
in the space of time
Hoping
isn’t worth a dime
And loving
is a fool’s way out
lying on the edge

A2:
Choking
back on all my tears
Calling
à tous les monsieurs
And dying
is a fool’s way out
hanging from the ledge

B:
Standing on the edge
With the power
of the ancient
Heraldry
Salvage what is left
Of the precious
Lady flower
fleur di lis

A3:
Tearing
down the twisted road
Swearing
at the ghost of Job
And smiling
at those fools way out
Dropping off the ledge

By Ross Durand

2pm Greenwich mean time
Standing with your feet on both sides of the line
One in the east, one in the west
Don't know which way to go next

Take the snapshot, walkaway
Don't look back, not today
Don't get distracted with what it means
To find yourself on both sides of things

Standing on the edge of here and there
Stranded between now and then
Don't look down, eyes straight ahead
And take a leap of faith,
You can't walk that tight rope forever
And it don't make sense to stand in one place
When you're standing on the edge, go one way or the other
It don't make no sense to stay

2am local night
Two sides of the bed like to sides of a line.
One side's yours, one side's not
How it got to this, you forgot

Take the snapshot, walkaway
Live to love another day
Don't know where you're going to
But when you get there tell em Ross sent you

Standing on the edge of here and there
Stranded between now and then
Don't look down, eyes straight ahead
And take a leap of faith,
You can't walk that tight rope forever
And it don't make sense to stand in one place
When you're standing on the edge, go one way or the other
It don't make no sense to stay

I see you in the sound
of a Walmart entry way
I see you plotting graphs
to the sine wave of your faith
I see your waveform collapse
from vibrations to mass
just tell me one thing
are you the man you claim to be,
kasey?

I see you in the small places
dancing by yourself
shake your shoulders to the beat
convert your massform to waves
of your quantum state
Digitize yourself
Digitize yourself
this song can't be played

Are you the man you claim to be?
This is the orange lazarus satellite feed
Beamed from the edge of Earth's gravity
cause we are geosynchronous
we are geosynchronous
