You can't say that when you don't like rap in the first place. Because Eminem is great if you do, because then you know how much all the other rappers suck and are exactly the same. At least Eminem's like rhymes every line unlike all those other rappers they play on mtv. That and his lyrics are pretty deep, though filled with personal angst, but people don't seem to mind that.

Anyway, the only problem is Sanspoofs post was a song almost nothing to do with the one posted before. So I'll restart the cycle with a good ol' Residents classic. I read this thread and realized that i hadn't posted any by them, so here is something by them more decipherable than there other lyrics(though better than these, just less decipherable)

GODSONG by RESIDENTS

God never really did like man anyway
At least not after they started walking around on their hind legs
And talking on the telephone
Of course poor God's point of view wasn't easy
Now understand that God invented man from dead things
Of course they're were no graveyards to rob
So he had been forced to use dead worms and some seeweed that had laid on the beach for quite a while, for quite a while

At the time man had four legs and no telephone
A major mistake came when God decided that men should think
A trait that He had long desired for himself
And what god no double intended was for man to think about him
And that was important because God just wanted to be just another normal deity deity deity ty ty ty ty ty ty

All that god wanted to be was just a normal deity
Another normal deity

It well for quite a while
Man was a wonderful creature with a long rich engraved face
Four fine legs ending in five mini-legs
A coat of satiny hair
And large genitals
His thoughts were pure and full of wonder
The wonder part was God's favorite at least at first
Because that's the part that gave him his identity identity identity identity

Oh, it was so wonderful for God
Man's...man's questions turned to visions
And these visions gave a kinds of exciting things to do
Someday he would be a God of wrath reeking havoc upon undisipline mankind
And at another time he would be a God of love and compassion
Of course these were all things that man had invented so God had a hard time getting the full grasp

One of God's favorite things was Man's believing in him and then not believing in him
Believing in him, not believing in him
Believing in him, not believing in him
Like some hide and seek game
Over and over and over and over
Believing in him, not believing in him
Believing in him, not believing in him
Believing in him, believing in him
Not believing in him
Not believing in him......
I think he liked believing in him much better
But I'm not sure

Strange song, huh?


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
