Popeda – Moottoripää

Annas kun mä kerron, sä kun aina kyselet
Menneisyyden haamut, usein esiin utelet
En kai ole kovin ylpee, mutta maksaa kyllä sain!
Mies kulkee, miehen menneisyys on menneisyyttä vain!
Mä palvon sua, sä tiedät sen
Koskaan pettää sua vois en!
Katso mua, ja anna mun sua rakastaa!
Mä olin vielä poikanen, kun viinaa trokasin
Pillereitä, pulvereita myöskin kauppasin
Katu oli koti, kyttä lähin omainen
Olin ehkä aavistuksen rentun oloinen
Huimaa kyytiä silloin elettiin
Kynttilät vauhdilla poltettiin
Silmä silmästä, hammas vaikka kahdesta!
Se oli uljasta!
Aivan liian nuorena mä menin naimisiin
Gimma venas pentua, me kaikkee vedettiin
Se sai kai jonkun taudin, mä tarkkaan muista en!
Hautuumaalta juoksin hullunlailla nauraen!
Huimaa kyytiä silloin elettiin
Kynttilät vauhdilla poltettiin
Kunniavelka, tapa, tee huorin, varasta!
Mutta tee se kunnolla
Tee se kunnolla, tee se kunnolla!
Ei sua ne koskaan saa!
On maailma vaarallinen
Tartu kiinni siihen nyt!
Ei sua ne koskaan saa
Sä vastaan maailmaa
Ei sua voi alistaa!
Ei ne saa!
Oon pahin, oon pahin,
Mä oon pahin, tiedän sen!
Polvistun, ja sua rukoilen!
Oon pahin, mä oon pahin,
Mä oon kuningas konnien
Mut mä nousen, vaikka vielä horjuen
Oi rakkain, voimakkain,
On tää tunne yhteinen!
Sun kanssas enää horjahtele en!

Anssi Kela – Puistossa

Yksi Anssi Kelan suurimmista hiteistä kertoo elämän nurjempaa puolta osakseen saaneista Petristä ja Laurasta.

“Puistossa ilta viilenee
Pete lämpimikseen hyppelee
Kelloaan katsoo kiroillen
Sytyttää röökin viimeisen

Luokan priimus oli koulussa
Nyt kuudentoista, koniin koukussa
Eikä mutsi jaksa välittää
Faijaansa ei oo nähnytkään

Pete pitää huolen itsestään
Eilen sai viestin frendiltään:
”Nyt ois helpot massit tiedossa
Jos tuut mukaan, nähdään puistossa””

Backyard Babies – I Love to Roll

Backyard Babiesillä meni 2001 lujaa. Dregenin elämänkerrasta napattua:

“Making Enemies Is Good -levyn äänityssopimukseen oli kirjattu kokaiinibudjetti, kevyesti naamioidussa muodossa toki. Se tunnettiin yleisesti nimellä “Keksipurkki”. Sen olemassaoloon viittasi levyn avausraita, sattuvasti nimetty I Love to Roll, joka päättyy kollektiiviseen snorttaukseen. kaikki bändin jäsenet sekä studion vieraat kantoivat kortensa kekoon.”

“I love to roll with the 1, 2, 3,4!
Flashback! Time to drop the bomb!
Yeah! Boomshaka-lickebomb!
Love it! Hate it! Love it! Love it!
Hate it! Love it! Trippin’! Damn! Hate it!

Staind – It’s Been Awhile

Stainedin läpimurtolevyn “Break the Cyclen” hittisinglellä Aaron Lewis taitaa laulaa omasta rimpuilustaan kokaiinin kanssa.

“And it’s been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
And it’s been awhile
Since I first saw you
And it’s been awhile
Since I could stand on my own two feet again
And it’s been awhile
Since I could call you

And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve stretched myself beyond my means

And it’s been awhile
Since I can say that I wasn’t addicted
And it’s been awhile
Since I can say I love myself as well
And it’s been awhile
Since I’ve gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it’s been awhile
But all that shit seems to disappear when I’m with you

And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve gone and fucked things up again

Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day!

And it’s been awhile
Since I could look at myself straight
And it’s been awhile
Since I said I’m sorry
And it’s been awhile
Since I’ve seen the way the candles light your face
And it’s been awhile
But I can still remember just the way you taste

And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem to be I know it’s me
I cannot blame this on my father
He did the best he could for me

And it’s been awhile
Since I could hold my head up high
And it’s been awhile
Since I said I’m sorry”

Cannibal Ox – Painkillers

Elämä on tekee kipeää ja kipua voi lievittää jos jollakin.

“You know we rap drugs and pain kill
Cause life’s ill

Yo, some nights we got so drunk
Its like we miss the feeling
Of a never ending headache
And a spinning ceiling
The sob story of an alcoholic
On his hands and knees
Praying to that porcelain toilet
Whether behind bars or in front of scars
We use medicine to numb the rap bar
I might tell you something that’ll change your death
Pain kills the life
Pleasure loves the breath
Ox a-cappell
I’ll spit this in hell
With L’s hanging off my body
And no ice cooler
Every rhyme I write
Is civilize my future wife
Breaking her water
In a time without order
Yo, chaos is born
A seance is spawned
And I resurrect light beams
That resemble the red dawn
I guess that’s why I was born
To recognize the beauty of a rose’s thorn
And learn from the strife of a soul that’s torn
To be forewarned
Just to be forearmed
So let that thought settle
As we backpeddle
Through the seven seas of info
That’ll crush your ego
Some of us pop pills and snort coke
To pain kill
Some of us rap drugs and bear witness
Cause life’s ill
Y0, but true happiness comes from within
You can’t rely on a substance
Look at addiction for instance
And in an instance
You’ll wake up out of that
Requiem for a Dream
But you still caught it in the rectum

Right here trapped in the box
Thinkin’
Rap’s all I got
Smoke too much pot
Bones with ?chromes? twisted in knots
Cold vein with thoughts
Bubbling hot
Stoned in the bedroom
Writin’ this poem
Off the phone
Caught a head rush
Smoke clouded my dome
At the end of my ropes
Writing these notes
Hopin’ to float
Above this bullshit
Pull spliffs blowin’ the ghosts
The sky’s the limit
Stay high with vision
Visualize the body righteous
Lost cipher
The mind’s wisdom
Helped me through life’s transitions
I’m in a tight position
Hungry-ass shit flippin’
With no sex or wretch
This stress got my chest a mess
Breathless
I’m vexed
Trying to escape out of the depths
Of hell’s nest
So I rest inhale
The trauma blessed
And let the stress exhale
Through clouds of cess
My mind foggy
And body wet
Poppin’ shotties
Shot straight through the nostril
Cloudy with thoughts of ill type menageries
When pops used to tell me
“it wasn’t like this
With drugs and sex
Up in my day”
But poppy
Shit really changed
Yo niggas is losing their minds
And I can’t really blame them
I’m losing my brain
In these times
And I’m angered with hangovers
Ready to ride off a cliff with a Range Rover
Like I was fuckin’ Thelma & Louise
And if I had a trigger I would squeeze
But ?leave?
Blow my whole head off and bleed
Trying to get that same feeling
Every day pain killing”

Savatage – Morphine Child

Suoranaisestihan tällä biisillä ei nimestään huolimatta ole tekemistä käsittääkseni huumeiden kanssa. Yhden ajatuksen mukaan biisi kertoo ihmisestä, joka pettymysten edessä antaa periksi ja elää elämäänsä morfiinin kaltaisessa tunnottomassa tilassa.

“There’s a thief on a summer’s night
Across an ocean
Who sees another’s life fading away

And of this life he writes
Without emotion
Then pushes it from sight
Somewhere faraway
To a distant land
Every tear betrayed
And never makes
And never makes
And never makes
And never makes a stand
Makes a stand
Lord there’s something wrong
Makes a stand

Could a star’s forgotten light
A child’s devotion
Embrace eternal night
In shallow graves

As we watch from distant heights
No breath or motion
Still every ghost must haunt in its own way
Sleep beneath my dreams
Safe within my hands
Where i never under
Never under
Never understand

Lord there’s something wrong

No one remembers
No one denies
No one asks questions
No one replies

Here nothing enters
Nothing departs
Here nothing’s ended
If nothing starts

In your life could you carry on
Could you never think about it
Till in time you start to doubt it

Then you close your eyes
Is it really gone
How in truth can you defend her
If you’re really not remembering

No regrets
If you just forget
If a memory is lenient
You can find it most convenient
So you let it fade
Till it’s very vague
Just a silhouette of shadows
But the shadows are still lingering

Still i hold you there
With your endless stare

I’m too old to be living this
Lived to long to be given this
Can our god be forgiving this

I had a light that shined
Across my mind
Rarely see it any more

Now it is mostly dark
Accept for sparks
Can’t remember what they’re for

I am the morphine child
The dream defiled
The never ending metaphor
I am the wizard oz
Result and cause
Never look behind that door

Cantations
Cantations
Cantations
Cantations

Never listen to the crowd before me
Never listen to the self ordained
Never really wanted to believe it any way

Time is fading
Night is calling
I am on my way

Turn around turn around
Turn around turn around

Time is fading
Night is calling
I am on my …”
