Stone – Escape

Suora lainaus Ari Väntäsen kirjoittamasta Stone historiikista: “Esimerkiksi Escapen sanoitus on 15-vuotiaan täysin kokemattoman jätkän käsitys siitä, millaista elämä kovien huumeiden maailmassa.”

“Black curtain is fading the lights out
My eyes are blinded
Sorrow in my head, pain fills my brain
I’m gonna explode unless I get
Speed in my vein

God knows I want to break free
But the pain is too much
So help me, please
I know this ain’t the right way out
What could I dou, I couldn’t
Face the truth

Fight the truth, forget it
Escape from reality
Killing my feelings and lighting
My brain
The easiest way to forgive myself

Run, hide
Fight, hard
Run, hide
But I’ll die

My time is running out, my end nears
I must change, I must see the light
Only god could help me, he’d give
The power
But I can’t live without speed
Am I a coward

Run, hide – Try to escape
Fight, hard – But there’s no way out
Run, hide – Try to escape
But I’ll die – My time’s run out

Damage crept up on me, pain turned too high
My brain was overloaded, ready to blow up
What was in my mind before
It was emptied…

Feeling things suck my brain out
Flaming in my head
Now I’m resting in peace without pain
But there’s one thing you should know
I died with joy

Run, hide – Try to escape
Fight, hard – But there’s no way out
Run, hide – Try to escape
But I’ll die – My time’s run out”

Van Halen – Amsterdam

Biisi löytyy viimeiseltä Sammy Hagarin aikakauden Van Halenin levyltä Balance. Biisi kertoo turistin silmin Amsterdamista…

“Light ’em up!

Yeah!

Lookin’ good through the window
Shinin’ red and blue light, yeah
A little thick in the bottom
But still lookin’ alright, yeah

Got me a long night ahead
Quick stop by the Bulldog

Oh, wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)

Woo! Hot damn, roll an Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
She can’t then nothin’ else can

Uh! Caught a plane outta Moscow
Spent one cold night in Berlin, yeah
It’s a long hard way but I’m a-comin’
Back again, yeah

Oh, wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
Stone you like nothin’ else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
Yeah, come on up, roll an Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
If she can’t then no one else can

Oh, wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
Will stone you like nothin’ else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
Yeah, hot damn, roll an Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
If she can’t then no one else can (Yeah yeah yeah)
Woo! Wham bam, oh Amsterdam (Yeah yeah yeah)
Don’t have to worry ’bout the man (Yeah yeah yeah)
Woo! Hot damn, uh, burn an Amsterdam, yeah (Yeah yeah yeah)
Stone me like nothin’ else can (Yeah yeah yeah)”
