Living Colour Blak Out

Blak out

I really don’t

Want to

Blak out

Gotta find a way to show you

See I

Can’t wait

Forget about tomorrow

Cause I

Can’t do what you want me to

So tell me how you like me now

Sometimes they misunderstand

Don’t know who I really am

Right now

I’m really thinkin’

I could go out

Maybe, you can

Find out my intentions baby

You can’t lock me out

You can’t shut me down

No compromising

I won’t let you take me down

Blak out

I really don’t

Want to

Blak out

Gotta find a way to show you

Bout my life

Standing in the darkness

Got my

Finger on the trigger

Will somebody help me now

Sometimes they misunderstand

Don’t know who I really am

Think God ain’t got any soul

Feel like I’m out of control

Blak out

Really didn’t

Want to

Blak out

Didn’t really need to

Blak out

Living Colour Behind The Sun

Living behind the dark side of the sun

Everyone’s here but nobody comes

Things are finished before they’ve begun

Life is beautiful behind the sun

You may see

You may care

We’re still here

You’re still there

Everyone’s happy life is sweet

Parallel lines that never meet

It’s cold and lonely but we still believe

The waters rise and no relief

You may see

You may care

We’re still here

You’re still there

If you come to help me you’re wasting your time

But if your struggle is bound up with mine

And we’ve begun and from each one behind the sun

Promises made

But nothings done

Forgotten ones

Behind the sun

If you’ve come to help me

(promises made)

You’re wasting your time

(but nothings done)

But if your struggle

(forgotten ones)

Is bound up with mine

(behind the sun)

If you come to help me

(behind the sun)

You’re wasting your time

(behind the sun)

[Fade]

Living Colour Tomorrow Never Knows

Turn off your mind, relax

and float down stream

It is not dying

It is not dying

Lay down all thought

Surrender to the void

It is shining

It is shining

That you may see

The meaning of within

It is being

It is being

That love is all

And love is everyone

It is knowing

It is knowing

That ignorance and hate

May mourn the dead

It is believing

It is believing

But listen to the

color of your dreams

It is not living

It is not living

Or play the game

existence to the end

Of the beginning

Of the beginning

Of the beginning

Of the beginning

Of the beginning

Of the beginning

Living Colour Memories Can’t Wait

Do you remember here?

No you don’t remember anything at all

I’m here flat on my back

Never woke up – had no regrets

There’s a party in my mind

And I hope it never stops

They party all the time

Gonna party till they drop

Other people can go home

Other people they can split

I can never stop

I can never quit

Take a walk through the land of the shadows

Take a walk through the peaceful meadows

Don’t look so disappointed

Isn’t what you hoped for is it?

There’s a party in my mind

And I hope it never stops

I’m stuck here in this seat

And I may not stand up

Other people can go home

Other people they can split

I can never stop

I can never quit

Everything is quiet

Everyone’s gone to sleep

I’m wide awake

But these memories

These memories can’t wait

These memories can’t wait…

Living Colour This Little Pig

56 times in 81 seconds…something like this

This little pig has a mind of his own

This little pig thinks he’s cool

This little pig thinks that he’s all grown

And this little pig needs school

This little pig has something to prove

This little piggie, he wants to be down

Now this little pig wishes that he can undo

The little pig that he shot down

This little pig’s on a mission

This little pig needs a plan

This little pig’s got ambition

This little pig does what he can

This little pig’s got cum on his hands

This little pig needs money to talk

This little pig comes up with a plan

This little pig whistling rock

This little pig thinks he’s runnning the show

This little pig thinks he’s king of the hill

This little pig, well he doesn’t know

He’s the next pig to be killed

56 times in 81 seconds

Living Colour Someone Like You

Do you remember

The time of laughter

Children playing, life was so sweet

Before our city forgot us

And let the druglord take our street

Pacify me politician

Pacify me with your lies

Blind to the people suffering

Deaf to the children’s cries

But I know what to do

With someone like you

Police

They chased my brother

Policeman licensed to kill

Oh how I miss my brother

Good shoes are so hard to fill

Policeman are you happy?

You snuffed a medical student out

Maybe he could have changed the world

I guess we’ll never find out

But I know what to do

With someone like you

I know what to do

With someone like you

It’s never too late to change your ways

It’s never too late to change your ways

Too young

Gave her body

She was afraid of being alone

One baby having another

Sweet baby wants to be grown

But there’s an angel on your shoulder

Always speaking to your soul

Listen and your heart will be glad

You’ll never have to be alone

‘Cause I know what to do

With someone like you

I know what to do

With someone like you

I know what to do

With someone like you

I know what to do

Living Colour Decadance

In the ugliness of beauty

And when pretty is vicious

You thought you were a voyeur

But the irony is delicious

Yeah, Yeah

In the access of excess

The pigs are at the trough

You thought you had to fill

But enough is never enough

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Enough is never enough

Young thrill seekers craving attention

Thought you were special

You never learned your lesson

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

[solo]

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Enough is never enough

Those that dare to question

Those that dare to dream

Buried alive in your shit

No one can hear you scream

In the belly of the beast

You stood tall

Didn’t anybody tell you?

All empires must fall.

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Feel the decadance

Enough is never enough

Decadance

Decadance

Yeah, the decadance.

Living Colour Two Sides

Play on, play on brother, play on

It’s real

Two sides to every story, that’s the deal

They say that every story has, two sides

With all purpose to confuse

Finding the final points between, two sides

There is no innocence, if you have to choose

They say that every story has, two sides

Trying to find the light, living in the indefinite gray

Repeating history, sentimental sake

Condemned by its aftermath, and laid low by its wave

Nostalgia, for things that never happened

Forget the scars across my heart

We’re all just, caught up in the moment

Between the actual and factual

There’s only two sides

Play on brother, play on

Even if you’re blind, there are two sides to every

One at a time baby

No more, no more, no more

Play on brother, play on

There are two sides

One at a time

Play on brother, play on

Two sides

Two sides

To each is reach

You know what I’m talkin’ about

Two sides to every story

Play on, play on brother, play on

Take a minute

It’s real, two sides to every story

That’s the deal

Well, well

The truth ain’t a lie

Two sides
