Sting – Children’s Crusade

Sting rinnastaa nuorten lasten sotaan lähtemisen jotenkin nykypäivän addiktoituneeseen nuoreen.

“Young men, soldiers, nineteen fourteen
Marching through countries they’d never seen
Virgins with rifles, a game of charades
All for a children’s crusade

Pawns in the game are not victims of chance
Strewn on the fields of Belgium and France
Poppies for young men, death’s bitter trade
All of these young lives betrayed

The children of England would never be slaves
They’re trapped on the wire and dying in waves
The flower of England face down in the mud
And stained in the blood of a whole generation

Corpulent generals safe behind lines
History’s lessons drowned in red wine
Poppies for young men, death’s bitter trade
All of those young lives betrayed
All for a children’s crusade

The children of England would never be slaves
They’re trapped on the wire and dying in waves
The flower of England face down in the mud
And stained in the blood of a whole generation

Midnight in Soho nineteen eighty four
Fixing in doorways, opium slaves
Poppies for young men, such bitter trade
All of those young lives betrayed
All for a children’s crusade”

Ministry – Just One Fix

Karusti ja kuvainnollisesti riippuvuudesta…

“Life keeps slipping away
Silence of desperation
Trying to find a highway in vein
Trying to find a destination

Just One Fix

Clock keeps ticking away
Banging on the walls of frustration
Organs keep grinding away
Monkey is the only solution

Just One Fix

Monkey starts driving the train
Tries to take out the station
Tried to find a highway in vein
Monkey kills without hesitation”

System of a Down – This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I’m on This Song

“single files of clean feedings
there’s nothing wrong with me
there’s something wrong with you
wrong with you and I
when we’re crying for our next fix
there’s nothing wrong with me
there’s something wrong with you
wrong with you and I
when we’re crying for our next fix”

Serjin sanoitukset eivät ole aina niitä yksiselitteisimpiä. Voisiko joku kertoa mistä tässä oikein on kysymys :-D
