Loc: Imladris, The Safe Haven of Ar...
Here's a thought. MS is looking for ways to augment it's budget and funding. Would MS consider undertaking a compilation CD? Sorta like what was done with "Band Aid", "Farm Aid", "A very special Christmas" where the musicians allowed their songs to be compiled onto one Cd and the proceeds from the sales went to a charitable organisation? Just a brainstorm I had. Would be a great deal of work, but would create enormous publicity and attention to MS, the Artists, many of whom may want to become part of the movement to prevent abuse of children? Imagine! I wish I had the connections and resources to undertake such a task. If I did, here would be my votes for the first two discs...and this would be the "Pissed off" edition I guess...we could create a "Healing" version later?

I also post these for Sum1Sun....Please don't let these lyrics set you off, or hurt you, or ruin the songs for you. The message is subtle, but there. With the Linkin Park lyrics, it's less subtle. More in the face. Be well, be strong, stay well, stay strong...

- All Fucked Up

From the album ""
(What the fuck do you think you're looking at? HAHAHAHA!)

I am all fucked up
And I am ready to break
I don't wanna be the guy
Who is always on the outside
I wanna find my own good place

All fucked up
And I don't know how
How I ever got to where I feel
Like I am dying on the inside
I want to be happy
But I don't know how

I am all fucked up
And it's always the same
I always get so close
Then I let it get away
I got no one but myself to blame

I'm all fucked up
And I don't know why
If the rest of my life
Is going to be like this
Think I would rather die
I am all fucked up

Yes, I am all fucked up
You're happy (repeat)
When you are all fucked up
Yes, I am all fucked up

I am all fucked up
Yes, I am ready to break
I don't wanna be the guy
Who is always on the outside
I wanna find my own good place

All fucked up
And I don't know how
How I ever got to where I feel
Like I'm dying on the inside
I want to be happy now

I am all fucked up
And it is always the same
I always get so close, then I let it get away
I got no one but myself to blame

I am all fucked up
And I don't know why
If the rest of my life
Is gonna be like this
Than think I would rather die
I am all fucked up

- Cry Mandy Moore

I'll always remember
It was late afternoon
It lasted forever
And ended too soon
You were all by yourself
Staring up at a dark gray sky
I was changed
In places no one would find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was then that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

The moment that I saw you cry

It was late in september
And I've seen you before (and you were)
You were always the cold one
But i was never that sure
You were all by yourself
Staring at a dark gray sky
I was changed

In places no one would find

All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was then that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

I wanted to hold you
i wanted to make it go away
I wanted to know you
I wanted to make your everything
all right....

I'll always remember...
It was late afternoon...
In places no one would find...

In places no one would find
All your feelings so deep inside (deep inside)
It was then that I realized
That forever was in your eyes
The moment I saw you cry

- Don't Let Me Get Me Pink

Never win first place, I don't support the team
I can't take direction, and my socks are never
clean
Teachers dated me, my parents hated me
I was always in a fight cuz I can't do nothin'
right

Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
I can't take the person starin' back at me
I'm a hazard to myself

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

I wanna be somebody else, yeah

LA told me, "You'll be a pop star,
All you have to change is everything you are."
Tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears
She's so pretty, that just ain't me

Doctor, doctor won't you please prescribe
somethin
A day in the life of someone else?
Cuz I'm a hazard to myself

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

Doctor, doctor won't you please prescribe
somethin
A day in the life of someone else?
Don't let me get me

Don't let me get me
I'm my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don't wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

Orgy - Blue Monday

How does it feel to treat me like you do?
When you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are
I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now How do I feel
Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They'll turn away no more
And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today
I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortunes
I'd be a heavenly person today
And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now, how should I feel
Now I stand here waiting...
I thought I told you to leave me
When I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold

Pet shop Boys - It's A Sin

As I look back upon my life..
it's always with a sense of shame..
I've always been the one to blame...

For everything I long to do..
no matter when or where or who..
has one thing in common too..

it's a.. it's a.. it's a.... it's a sin....

it's a sin..

My father taught me how to be
So pure of thought.. and word and deed..
he didn't quite succeed........

for everything I long to do..
no matter when or where or who..
has one thing in common too..

it's a.. it's a.. it's a....... it's a sin...

everything I've ever done..
everything I'll ever do
everyplace I've ever been..
everywhere I'm going to........

it's a sin.....

Father forgive me...
I tried not to do it....
Turned over a new leaf...
then tore right through it...
Whatever you taught me...
I didn't believe it...
Father you fought me..
cuz I didn't care.. and I still don't.. understand.......


Now as I look back upon my life..

Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams

Sweet dreams are made of this who am I to disagree
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused

Ooh...hey...ooh...aha, oh...
(rpt 1)

Ooh...hey...oh...
Hold your head up, keep your head up, movin' on
Hold your head up, movin' on
Keep your head up, movin' on
Hold your head up, movin' on...
(rpt 2, 1...)

Rascal Flatts - I'm Movin' On
(Phillip White/Vincent Williams)

I've dealt with my ghosts and faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
Iíve found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once Iím at peace with myself
Iíve been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
Iím moviní on

Iíve lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but theyíre always the same
They mean no harm but itís time that I face it
Theyíll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I donít belong
Iím moviní on

Iím moviní on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know thereís no guarentees, but Iím not alone
There comes a time in everyoneís life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

I sold what I could and packed what I couldnít
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
Iíve loved like I should but lived like
I shouldnít
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
Iím moviní on

Iím moviní on
Iím moviní on

Enigma- Return To Innocence

That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence.

[Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion]

Love - Devotion
Feeling - Emotion

Don't be afraid to be weak
Don't be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence.

If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny.

Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence.

That's not the beginning of the end
That's the return to yourself
The return to innocence.

[Don't care what people say
Follow just your own way
Follow just your own way
Don't give up, don't give up
To return, to return to innocence.]

[If you want then laugh
If you must then cry
Be yourself don't hide
Just believe in destiny.]

Simply Red- Holding Back The Years

Holding back the years,
Thinking of the fear I've had for so long.
When somebody hears,
Listen to the fear that's gone.
Strangled by the wishes of pater,
Hoping for the arm of mater,
Get to me sooner or later,

Nothing ever could, yeah.
I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on.

Chance for me to escape from all I know.
Holding back the tears.
There's nothing here has grown.
I've wasted all my tears,
Wasted all those years.
Nothing had the chance to be good,

Nothing ever could, yeah.
I'll keep holding on,

I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on,
I'll keep holding on
So tight.

ABBA- Chiquitita

Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love's a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Jefferson Airplane- White Rabbit

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

And call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head

Simon and Garfunkel - I Am A Rock

A winter's day
In a deep and dark
December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
But I've heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.

Gordon Lightfoot- If You Could Read My Mind

If you could read my mind love,
what a tale my thoughts could tell.
Just like an old time movie
about a ghost from a wishing well.
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
with chains upon my feet.
You know that ghost is me
and I will never be set free
as long as I'm a ghost that you can see.


If I could read your mind love,
what a tale your thoughts could tell.
Just like a paperback novel,
the kind the drugstore sells.
When you reach the part where the heartaches
come the hero would be me.
Heroes often fail.
And you won't read that book again
because the endings just to hard to take.


I walk away like a movie star
who gets burned in a three way>

I think that is a great idea too! I would love to help in any way if someone decides to take it on. Tori Amos is a big supporter of such things, perhaps she would be an interested party.

Those are all great lyrics especially Linkin Park and Simon and Garfunkel. Thanks for the lyrics and the idea. I will now post some I believe are testament to the cause.
