    I just heard John Pryne’s “Illegal smile” a few minutes ago..I was thinking about a thread like this.

    Savoy Brown “Needle and spoon”

    Neil Young “Needle and the damage done”

    Lynard Skynard “The needle and the spoon” “Poison Whisky” “That smell”

    Alice in Chains “Goin down the steps on a white line” ( I told the doctor thank you very much can I borrow fifty bucks?)

    Guns and Roses “Mr Brownstone” “Ain’t it fun?”

    Guns and Roses “Don’t damn me” ( listen to this close its about doing a 4th step “I put the pen to the paper cuz’ its all a part of me”)

    Jackyl “Brain Drain”

    Godsmack “Voodoo”

    The Who “Behind blue eyes” ( c’mon did i really think that i was the only one they were talking to when they said “no one knows what it’s like to be the sad man”?)

    I think that it’s very interesting that we are passionate people who don’t feel free to express our emotions and all these years had to settle for allowing the poets and troubadors to do it for us.

    Peace Train

    Now I’ve been happy lately, thinking about the good things to come
    And I believe it could be, something good has begun

    Oh I’ve been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one
    And I believe it could be, some day it’s going to come

    Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
    Oh peace train take this country, come take me home again

    Now I’ve been smiling lately, thinking about the good things to come
    And I believe it could be, something good has begun

    Oh peace train sounding louder
    Glide on the peace train
    Come on now peace train
    Yes, peace train holy roller

    Everyone jump upon the peace train
    Come on now peace train

    Get your bags together, go bring your good friends too
    Cause it’s getting nearer, it soon will be with you

    Now come and join the living, it’s not so far from you
    And it’s getting nearer, soon it will all be true

    Now I’ve been crying lately, thinking about the world as it is
    Why must we go on hating, why can’t we live in bliss

    Cause out on the edge of darkness, there rides a peace train
    Oh peace train take this country

    This is a great song for me. Since I started working the 12 steps I feel like I am riding this peace train. I ride the Don’t Quit bus also. Love to all my brothers & sisters in Recovery. We Rock! like dotcom would say.

    BRAIN DAMAGE
    PINK FOYD
    DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

    THE LUNATIC IS ON THE GRASS
    THE LUNATIC IS ON THE GRASS
    REMEMBERING GAMES AND DAISY CHAINS AND LAUGHS
    GOT TO KEEP THE LOONIES ON THE PATH

    THE LUNATIC IS IN THE HALL
    THE LUNATICS ARE IN MY HALL
    THE PAPER HOLDS THEIR FOLDED FACES TO THE FLOOR
    AND EVERY DAY THE PAPER BOY BRINGS MORE

    AND IF THE DAM BREAKS OPEN MANY YEARS TOO SOON
    AND IF THERE IS NO ROOM UPON THE HILL
    AND IF YOUR HEAD EXPLODES WITH DARK FORBODINGS TOO
    I’LL SEE YOU ON THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

    THE LUNATIC IS IN MY HEAD
    THE LUNATIC IS IN MY HEAD
    YOU RAISE THE BLADE, YOU MAKE THE CHANGE
    YOU RE-ARRANGE ME ‘TILL I’M SANE

    YOU LOCK THE DOOR
    AND THROW AWAY THE KEY
    THERE’S SOMEONE IN MY HEAD BUT IT’S NOT ME

    AND IF THE CLOUD BURSTS, THUNDER IN YOUR EAR
    YOU SHOUT AND NO ONE SEEMS TO HEAR
    AND IF THE BAND YOUR’E IN STARTS PLAYING DIFFERENT TUNES
    I’LL SEE YOU ON THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON.

    THIS ALBUM ROCKS…..STAY STRONG ted :supercool :ghost :band

    Could’ve tripped out easy, but I’ve changed my ways”

    Isn’t music just SO great! It’s the one thing in my life I’ve always been truely passionate about.

    STAIND LYRICS
    “So Far Away”

    this is my life
    its not what it was before
    all these feelings i’ve shared
    and these are my dreams
    that i’d never lived before
    somebody shake me
    ’cause i
    i must be sleeping

    [chorus]
    now that we’re here,
    it’s so far away
    all the struggle we thought was in vain
    all the mistakes,
    one life contained
    they all finally start to go away
    now that we’re here its so far away
    and i feel like i can face the day i can forgive
    and i’m not ashamed to be the person that i am today

    these are my words
    that i’ve never said before
    i think i’m doing okay
    and this is the smile
    that i’ve never shown before

    somebody shake me ’cause i
    i must be sleeping

    [chorus]

    i’m so afraid of waking
    please don’t shake me
    afraid of waking
    please don’t shake me

    [chorus]

    oh yeah dot, love the cube. I’ve been known to dig on some of that oldschool gansta rap too.

    :band when the going gets tuff, the tuff get rocking

    I am actually looking for the name of a song I once heard.

    It’s a country song and I don’t know the title or artist.

    The only part I remember is:

    “Honey, I am broken.
    Although I was only jokin’…..”

    She then goes on to agree with him that is life is indeed “broken” because of his addiction (I think).

    I know this is very vague but if any knows what it is please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Gonna look you right in the face
    Better get yourself together darlin’

    Who in the hell d’you think you are
    A super star
    Well, right you are

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Well we all shine on
    Ev’ryone come on

    Instant Karma’s gonna get you
    Gonna knock you off your feet
    Better recognize your brothers
    Ev’ryone you meet
    Why in the world are we here
    Surely not to live in pain and fear
    Why on earth are you there
    When you’re ev’rywhere
    Come and get your share

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Yeah we all shine on
    Come on and on and on on on
    Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah

    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Yeah we all shine on
    On and on and on on and on

    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Well we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
    Yeah we all shine on
    Like the moon and the stars and the sun
