Sepultura - Inner Self


Walking these dirty streets
With hate in my mind
Feeling the scorn of the world
I won't follow your rules

Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Nonconformity in my inner self
Only I guide my inner self

I won't change my way
It has to be this way
I live my life for myself
Forget your filthy ways

Blame and lies, contradictions arise
Blame and lies, contradictions arise

Nobody will change my way
Life betrays, but I keep on going
There's no light, but there's hope
Crushing oppression, I win

Betraying and playing dirty, you think you'll win
But someday you'll fall, and I'll be waiting
Laughs of an insane man, you'll hear
Personality is my weapon against your envy

Walking these dirty streets
With hate in my mind
Feeling the scorn of the world
I won't follow your rules
Nonconformity in my inner self
Only I guide my inner self

Sepultura - Beneath The Remains


IN THE MIDDLE OF A WAR THAT WAS NOT STARTED BY ME
DEEP DEPRESSION OF THE NUCLEAR REMAINS
I'VE NEVER THOUGHT OF, I'VE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT
THIS HAPPENING TO ME
PROLIFERATIONS OF IGNORANCE
ORDERS THAT STAND TO DESTROY
BATTLEFIELDS AND SLAUGHTER
NOW THEY MEAN MY HOME AND MY WORK
WHO HAS WON?
WHO HAS DIED?
BENEATH THE REMAINS
CITIES IN RUINS
BODIES PACKED ON MINEFIELDS
NEUROTIC GAME OF LIFE AND DEATH
NOW I CAN FEEL THE END
PREMONITION ABOUT MY FINAL HOUR
A SAD IMAGE OF EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING'S SO REAL
WHO HAS WON?
WHO HAS DIED?
EVERYTHING HAPPENED SO QUICKLY.
I FELT I WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE HELL
I'LL FIGHT FOR MYSELF, FOR YOU, BUT SO WHAT?
TO FEEL A DEEP HATE
TO FEEL SCARED
BUT BEYOND THAT, TO WISH BEING AT AN END
CLOTTED BLOOD
MASS MUTILATION
HOPE FOR THE FUTURE IS ONLY UTOPIA
MORTALITY, INSANITY, FATALITY
YOU'LL NEVER WANT TO FEEL WHAT I'VE FELT
MEDIOCRITY, BRUTALITY, AND FALSITY
IT'S JUST A WORLD AGAINST ME
CITIES IN RUINS
BODIES PACKED ON MINEFIELDS
NEUROTIC GAME OF LIFE AND DEATH
NOW I CAN FEEL THE END
PREMONITION ABOUT MY FINAL HOUR
A SAD IMAGE OF EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING'S SO REAL
WHO HAS WON?
WHO HAS DIED?
BENEATH THE REMAINS

There Are Lasses Getting Trouble On Their Own Home Beat
There Are Old Folk Battered In The Open Street
In This City Of Ours
There Are Eyes That See But Say Nothing At All
There Are Ears That Hear But They Don't Recall
In This City Of Ours
So We Followed Your Man Back To Your Front Door
And We're Waiting For You Outside
'cos Not Everybody Here Is Scared Of You
Not Everybody Passes On The Other Side

Just listened to the full album now, and i think it's really quite good - all throughout it kept reminding me of Metallica! I guess they could have been mutual influences at that time? Metallica of course started out as a thrash band.

Yes I agree. Probably mutual influences at the time. Great riff's, clearly defined music. It's what attracted me to it.

My HS BF took me to see Sepultura with Flotsam and Jetsam and some other metal band...Testament yes-they were my fave of the line-up...

All I really remember is being freaked out by the people shooting up H at the table next to us-crazy.

Ah Testament.. I remember them now. When I was a teen I bought one of their albums because I like one of their songs.

I never bought another of theirs.. :giggle:

That would have sucked, having all those ppl shooting up near you :thumbdown:

I've been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman's control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don't see myself upon that list

But she said, where d'you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I'm not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss
