Nur Ein X - Banshee lyrics

Postby iVeg » Sat May 16, 2015 12:50 pm

Early Sunday morning at the crack of dawn
I pull my tan and gray battle armor on
Throw off the tarps that hide my ATV
A heavily modified Yamaha Banshee

Crawl under the the bridge to dodge the MPD
Some guy's cousin's friend sold me a special key
As I gun the Banshee through the private gate
Across the highway skids a Ford with ramming plates

All I wanted was a nice morning drive

Four miles of twisting white concrete
No speed limit on Oprah's street
Engine screaming 90 miles an hour
Banshee climbing toward the sun

All I wanted was a nice morning drive
Me and my Banshee, Me and my Banshee

F-150 driver closing for the kill
If I dared reach back I bet I'd touch his grill
I'm faster in the corners, slowly pull away
I'll be dead if I make a single mistake

PC -- CH

Movement ahead
Escalade coming down fast
Cut the corner tight
Throw up a cloud of brown dust
Sneer on her face as
She stomps on the gas
I swerve right

CH
If they hadn't tried to kill me they'd still be alive

Sean Cassidy was born with mutant power
He battles evil, protects mankind
Racing to save those in distress
He blasts bad guys with much success

Banshee
Keeps crime off the streets
Banshee
No man can defeat
Banshee
Soaring thru the sky
Banshee
Listen to his cry

Evil mutants run and hide
Black Tom your time is close at hand
The Banshee's scream will terrify
When they hear his mighty cry

(Theme song for Banshee, former member of the X-men)

Nick MacSoma - Banshee
featuring Cookie Blue

Passin o'er the hills there is a shadow in the night
A drunkard on his way homeward, he's just been in a fight
Barman wouldn't pass him another pint of ale
Now that poor ol' barman's soul, to heaven it did sail

From the misty mountains nears a ghastly sight well known
A creature from the fairy world, not made of flesh and bone
Banshee's on her way, and now with her that man must go
Banshee's gonna take his hand and lead him down below

(chorus)
Hark! the screeching barn owl underneath the blood red moon
A certain sign for all us mortals of impending doom
Lo! a spectral vision's rising from the misty lake
The wailing Banshee's come your squalid soul with her to take

And as he sees her pale face, as he sees her coming near
As he sees her bloodshot eyes, he falls down pleading, full of fear
"Have mercy on me, I have sinned, but anything I'll do;
A servant of the Lord I'll be, I swear to God, it's true!

"I shall live a simple hermit life and never drink no more
If only you could spare me like you did spare me before."
"Mavourneen, you've been roving and a-rambling for too long"
She says, "And this is why I've come to take your soul along"

(chorus)

He tries to run away from her but all his bones, they freeze
Upon hearing the Banshee's scream, he falls down to his knees
Banshee's leaning down and kissing him the kiss of death
Without any resistance he then breathes his final breath

(chorus)

Whoa ho fol lol de oh, beneath the blood red moon
Whoa ho ra da de aye oh, the Banshee brings us doom
Whoa ho fol lol de oh, from the misty lake
Your soul is cursed, and now the Banshee's come for it to take

Banshee
à tous les monsieurs

Wail in the black night
Howl from the pale wight
Gonna play like a banshee,
Like a banshee screamin out
in the blood of the red moon light
Wailin with sustain
Howlin with some gain
I play that funky melody
as the reaper carries me
across the lake to Hades

A lone funky howl from across the hell
Lakefire, barbed wire, scenes from a jail
a prison of the mind, your body and soul
The home of the blues, where you sell it for dough
Rock my flow, sell my soul, lies were told of white gold
Dreamin up a death wish, reaper’s got a guest list
Chllin and fillin up the halls of the restless
Poor Bob at the crossroads flaggin a ride
Ella and Sarah bidin their time
Passin the dime rockin the rhyme
harbinger sign. Hitchin a ride to the end of the line
Muddy gots da mojo, Wolf’s got da evil
Waitin for the wraith, soul cold chill
Hold up. Here comes the banshee wail

Wail in the black night
Howl from the pale wight
Gonna play like a banshee,
Like a banshee screamin out
in the blood of the red moon light
Wailin with sustain
Howlin with some gain
I play that funky melody
as the reaper carries me
across the lake to Hades

Banshee - Paco del Stinko

Eternally lonely, crying for others
Stillborn babies, young dying mothers

How far away do you feel the pain
Is there ever a day when it does not rain


Sing your lament, but don't sing for me
Pass by our house, please leave us be

How far away do you feel the pain
Is there ever a day when it does not rain


Is it a song just misunderstood
Maybe heard better if only we could
Some say you learned to sing from the old master owl
Foretelling anguish with a horrible howl
Would you sympathize (Would you sympathize)
If you could see my eyes

Please don't sing for me
Please don't sing for me


Omen of death, foretelling of doom
We all hold our breath, alone in the gloom

How far away do you feel the pain
Is there ever a day when it does not rain
l
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Balance Lost

Forget the invective, I'm just a detective
They call me "Banshee" 'cause I can see
When someone's gonna die with my thrid eye
Turned up a corpse? Just another day in Homicide
Got a B&E, DIP, DUII?
Then don't look at me, tha's some other sucker's game
Give it to a uniform
My time's better spent studying cuneiform

A call from the precinct, that sinking feeling
Transmission in drive and tyres are squealing
A one eighty-seven, another John Doe
Nobody ever said it was easy in the five-oh
Too bad my vision can't see the perp
What's worse, the body won't fit in the hearse
One too many subs and cubanos
Tell you what, I could murder one of those

Voices in my head
Voices in my head
Voices in my head
Lights out, another one dead

What's going down now, the other side of town
She used to have a pretty face before she drowned
But was there a hand that pushed or did she just jump?
Will the clues uncover another smoking gun?
It breaks my heart to see one so young
Another one of these and I think my career's done
The victims haunt me every single day
The faces of those I saw but couldn't save

Voices in my head
Voices in my head
Voices in my head
Lights out, another one dead

Banshee - Carlo Bruno Jr.

Nobody called you
No, and no one expects you
We were calm and happy
Until you came

You bring bad news
You bring death omens
Not welcome, Banshee

Don't tell me stories
No white lights and tunnels of love
We are Irish from Volga
Bring us nothing but vodka

You bring bad news
You bring death omens
Not welcome, Banshee

Get out of the house
You bring death omens
Not welcome, Banshee

Banshee

Not welcome, Banshee

Banshee - Frankie Big Face

Can I get a word with you?
Can I get a word with you?

My job, my age, some lies, a picture
With my dog, a date, a fifth of liquor
And by every measure we are having fun
A pulse, a beat, a light, a flicker
Of romance, a dance, a strong predictor
We were always meant to be, yes he’s The One

Can I get a word with you?
Can I get a word with you?
Our fingers touch
This can't be wrong
I serenade him
With my song

Woe is me
Another evening ends in tears
The man I love has disappeared
Woe is me
Everyone who hears my cry
Vanishes before my eyes

Can I get a word with you?

Alarm, a sigh, a shower, a visit
To my mom, a talk, a firm decision
That it’s time to mount that horse and try again
A chance, a glance, a spark, some kismet
And we're off, a chase, a race, collision
Of our hearts, our minds, our souls, let’s not pretend

Can I get a word with you?
Can I get a word with you?
We've found ourselves
Where we belong
Please let me please you
With my song


Woe is me
Another evening ends in tears
The man I love has disappeared
Woe is me

Everyone who hears my cry
Vanishes before my eyes
The sun has set, the day is done
And here I sit, I'm all alone
A beating heart is a vicious curse
The call to love an endless thirst
I've done no wrong, committed no crime
But I waste away, I serve my time

Woe is me
Can I get a word with you?
Can I get a word with you?

Banshee
By the Cavedwellers

I know that you care
But you are
Such a Cassandra

That might not be fair
I'd get lost
Without your candor

We live to tell
The dramas you create
A liar at will
Misfortune generates

You said you were worried about me
And I told you you were wrong
Then I heard the banshee wailing
All night long
You shouldn't be worried about me
And I told you you were wrong
Then I heard the banshee wailing
All night long

All of my friends
Will pretend
Not to avoid ya

I'd be remiss
To dismiss
Your paranoia

The harbinger looms
Waiting for her cue
Somewhere in the room
A devil wants his due

You said you were worried about me
And I told you you were wrong
Then I heard the banshee wailing
All night long
You shouldn't be worried about me
And I told you you were wrong
Then I heard the banshee wailing
All night long

It seems you were right
That tonight
I'd need my end game

I misalign
The traps
To force a stalemate

I can't begin
To relive my close call
The ghost or the wind
Echoes down the hall

You said you were worried about me
And I told you you were wrong
Then I heard the banshee wailing
All night long
You shouldn't be worried about me
And I told you you were wrong
Then I heard the banshee wailing
All night long

Banshee (Nein)

Back in nineteen hundred and three
there was a place where a lady sat and drank tea
with a little brandy, pinky out like fancy,
after she murdered 50 kids her mom and granny.

Afterwards she threw herself into the Red Sea.
Her body bound to her house to live for eternity.
Dancing, prancing, eating candy. Dandy.
Man! I gotta get up there to see that Banshee!



A hundred years later it is rainy and cold.
I got a video recording camera on my phone.
I'm going in alone hoping there is someone home
as I see the house at the end of the dirt road.

I can see the wood covering up the windows.
Second floor has holes where the kids had threw stones.
In the back of my mind I hear screams and moans
of the people had their soul separated from their bones.

I turn my camera on and raise it up to my face.
I recite a little script that begins with my name
and I say where I am and let them know why I came.
The Banshee is mine. I'm gonna figure out her game!

I'm gonna make her smile all the while shes on tape.
Proving she exists will bring me fortune and fame.
I get to the door about a quarter to eight at night
with a plan to make it to the morning light.



Sunset out but inside darker than black.
The first board I step on creaks with a loud crack.
I let my eyes adapt. I adjust my backpack.
I yell "hello" but words dont come back.

I light the darkness with a glow stick. *Snap*
Green light illuminates the room. A gray slab
of an altar with a knife that is ready to stab
laying next to an ancient Yankees cap.

I hear noises coming from the top of the stairs.
I turn around to go but stub my toe on a chair
that wasn't there before. Appeared out of thin air.
They try'na stop me. I let it go; I dont care.

Up the stairs in two steps letting out a Rick Flair.
WOOOO!! Into the darkness I stare.
Piercing through the black of night is a small ray of light.
So, I follow where it goes and hear a clock chime nine.


Shhhhh.... *thump thump. thump thump*


All the lights go out. I stumble, tumble and fall.
I can't see the fingernails, feel them grip and they claw.
The hands cold as ice and its freezing my balls.
It really hurts, got me headbutting holes in the wall.

A swirl of mist or dust, I don't know, it just falls.
A pair of red eyes form the face of a doll.
I don't know what to say. I stammer, stutter, and stall.
I stand tall with my camera out. Got it all.

My mouth still open. I am standing there dumb.
A thousand voices fill the hall. Don't know where they come from.
I can hear the dead come. Turning up the "redrum".
Don't see I dropped the phone. I wonder what I've become.

The apparition wearing white is floating in front of me.
I'm telling her she's gorgeous as her head hits her knee.
Her mouth opens in a scream. It's a pretty melody.
She takes me into her arms and I am in ecstasy.

Now I'm loving the fruit of the poisonous tree.
I'm unlocking her secrets with my skeleton key.
Her body is cold. I'm at the highest degree.
The Banshee and me and our baby makes three!

*ha ha ha ha ha...*

Banshee

Intro: A A G D x4 E E E E

A A G D x 4 E E E E
Don’t trust the king with blood on his mind
inclined to defile whatever catches his eye
In the name of his gods he’ll pillage and rage
divine consent for the wars he will wage

They’ll tell stories of glory and grails
while the banshees and bagpipers wail

Intro x2

He’ll rally the troops for his noble cause
with inspiring speeches to rouse their applause
as battering rams break through city walls
the victorious stand where enemies fall

In battles the righteous prevail
while the banshees and bagpipers wail

Bridge: E E F G x4

Intro x2

If there is freedom then battles were won
before mercy arrived they lost fathers and sons
even the king is a man who can fall
in his death he’d won nothing at all

crimson rivers that flowed from his mail
while the banshees and bagpipers wail

Outro: E E G D x4
Banshee
Standing over the king

End: E E E E A
