Pure power - One and Unquiet Grave, Metallica and Joan Baez

Postby enigma » Sat Jun 09, 2007 4:30 pm

Thought I would start a new topic, Songs that have got raw power behind them, ones that make you cry, angry, or even happy, just by truly hearing it. for my forst one I decided on 'One' a very powerful tribute to soldiers who are not lucky enough to be killed, but are maimed so badly that they cannot do anything but lay there trapped within there own minds and body, for full effect try to watch the video, it breaks my heart every time.

One by Metallica

I Can't Remember Anything
Can't Tell If this Is True or Dream
Deep down Inside I Feel to Scream
this Terrible Silence Stops Me

Now That the War Is Through with Me
I'm Waking up I Can Not See
That There Is Not Much Left of Me
Nothing Is Real but Pain Now

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God,wake Me

Back in the Womb its Much Too Real
in Pumps Life That I must Feel
but Can't Look Forward to Reveal
Look to the Time When I'll Live

Fed Through the Tube That Sticks in Me
Just like a Wartime Novelty
Tied to Machines That Make Me Be
Cut this Life off from Me

Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God,wake Me
Now the World Is Gone I'm Just One
Oh God,help Me Hold My Breath as I Wish for Death
Oh Please God Help Me

Darkness Imprisoning Me
All That I See
Absolute Horror
I Cannot Live
I Cannot Die
Trapped in Myself
Body My Holding Cell

Landmine Has Taken My Sight
Taken My Speech
Taken My Hearing
Taken My Arms
Taken My Legs
Taken My Soul
Left Me with Life in Hell

Yes I like it Enigma. One of my favourite quieter death songs is 'The Unquiet Grave' of which I like the Joan Baez version.

The Unquiet Grave (version sung by Joan Baez) ;

Cold blows the wind to my true love
And gently drops the rain
I've never had but one true love
And in green-wood he lies slain.

I'll do as much for my true love
As any young girl may
I'll sit and mourn all on his grave
For twelve months and a day.

And when twelve months and a day was passed
The ghost did rise and speak
"Why sittest thou all on my grave
And will no let me sleep?"

"Go fetch me water from the desert
And blood from out the stone
Go fetch me milk from a fair maid's breast
That young man never has known."

"How oft on yonder grave, sweetheart
Where we were want to walk
The fairest flower that e'er I saw
Has withered to a stalk."

"A stalk has withered and dead, sweetheart
The flower will never return
And since I've lost my own true love
What can I do but yearn."

"When will we meet again, sweetheart
When will we meet again?"
"When the autumn leaves that fall from the trees
Are green and spring up again."

Hear it ;

PS. You can listen to Joan Baez sing all of this song and others in the 'Bob Dylan, Joan Baez' post.
