Post Re: MUSIC OF REASON!!!!!

Hm... I see the premise of this thread and must retreat to my lair (iTunes) to prepare.

Um... "Thoughts of a Dying Atheist" by Muse?

Hell "Knights of Cydonia" by Muse even has a line about God in it.

I even found a song I didn't know I had, "Do the Evolution" by Pearl Jam?

edit- I just found another one, "God is a Lie" by Wednesday 13 or by the same band "The Devil Made Me Do it."

Anyone heard anything by Heaven Shall Burn?

One voice, one power, the people's will arose,
Slew the tyrant and burned his castles, brought down
A supreme blooded pestilence once more

Under the same dawn advocates of wealth and freedom spread their words like prophets do
Bring them down! Down to their knees! Down to this greed!

Fooling us again, while our screams not even silenced
This rage has been a weapon, but our hope will bring the doom
So many times I prayed:, so many times I died!

We burst the chains
And now we should be on our own, but the fear of tomorrow
Will drive you to their arms again

The golden age we're celebrating creeps out of the womb of the same old lie
A child of tyranny and hatred
A heaven for the chosen few

I thought this thread was just to talk about music in general? If we're moving into that type of discussion then let me dip into my non-iTunes lair to prepare :P how about:
The Mercy Seat by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Plenty of lines on the bible and related subjects in that.
Calvary Scars (note that this is the remix) by Deerhunter seems to be about Jesus.
3rd Planet by Modest Mouse fits into this.
Disciple by Slayer is about christians in general and how god hates us.
Infected by Bad Religion. That list could go on for a long time :P

My favorite group for the past few years has been Boards Of Canada. No real need for lyrics for me. The songs usually give me that euphoric/hurt feeling of nostalgia that gets my heart soaring and makes me happy to be alive enjoying the short life I may have. Anything with vibraphones or old analog synthesizers is alright in my book. Here's a few choice tracks.

This is what I listen to when people, problems, or people problems make my brain hurt.

These are some fanmade videos.




An actual video from the group featuring video from a world record jump from 19 miles above the Earth. The video at the beginning freaks me out a bit as it appears he is falling from space.


This one I am unable to embed so here's the link.

Post Re: MUSIC OF REASON!!!!!

for me Music is the Opposite of Reason, its only purpose is to willingly provoke Emotions (which I want to have at the Moment because I,´m in the Mood for them)
for that Reason my most liked Genres of Music are:
-Movie Themes
-Propaganda Music(you can say what you want about the former Empire of Evil but they surely knew how to pull the Stings on that Subject)
-NuMetal(with most of its different Types of Mood)
-Folklore(and its Mixtures with modern Music)
-Eisregen(I,´m generally not so much into Metal but they are a rare Exception so I name them)

Anything by rudimentary peni.

Rudimentary Peni-Cosmetic plague

Being honest is no means of survival
Avoid your inner feelings like the plague
This is what it takes to comply with the images
This structure will accomodate
But things aren't what they seem when they're partially hidden
Behind walls of pretense built for peace of mind
The barriers between us are forever maintained
By our acceptance of the roles others choose to define


In a world of competition life's portrayed as a contest
Where we're forced to live by making gains at others expense
But no one's really gaining when perpetual conflict
Is the result of our relationships based on pretense
We don't need this cultural cosmetic division
It upholds the self-interest on which the system feeds
A deconditioned consciousness of mutual respect
Is the only way to cure this cosmetic disease
Crazy people are more interesting

^ That reminds me..

Underground(Mostly Intelligent) Hip Hop/Rap

These people sound more like poets than rappers..Great use of literary devices and rhetoric. Scientific and philosophical allusions and metaphors. ;)

His voice might be a little annoying...but just listen to the WHOLE song and follow the lyrics before saying anything..click the link to see the video bigger.

Here's another from the same guy...this time a freestyle.

..and this guy is probably the most known rapper from the underground. You might have heard of him before.

What do you people think? Anyone else listens to the underground?

Streetlight Manifesto: Down, Down, to Mephisto's Cafe




lyrics excerpt wrote:Way back when the prophecies began
Do you think they really had a master plan
Or were they merely writing fables, stories?
I don't know but it has occurred to me
The punishment that they threaten constantly
It's only real if they could just convince me


So fuck the flocks of sheep that keep amassing masses
Asses being led so far astray
And I won't claim to believe the things I read
Black books or agenda magazine
I'd rather see in shades of gray
Contrary to popular belief, full-immersion holographic sex will not destroy society.

Full-immersion holographic sex achievement points will destroy society

I just downloaded what I think is the whole discography of Bad Religion... Good music. ;)

Here are some quotes from my favorite rapper, Canibus.

"A wise man sees failure as progress
a fool divorces his knowledge and misses the logic
And loses his soul in the process"

"You talkin to a nigga that can split molecules
To subatomic particles, strong enough to stop a bull
Bodies slam two oxes, drop a mule
Urinating rocket fuel, freestylin over gospel tunes"

"Yo, I plan to build myself a facility before I'm 40
a molecular archeo-genetic laboratory
that can analyze complex poetry data for me
even if it was recorded poorly, how extraordinary
I frog leap over awful beats
then I separate rappers by the carbon-14s
to determine the age of anything ever made
regardless of how the outside surface has changed
I put a curse on your name, bombard your brain
with gamma x-rays till you burst into flames
with the scientifically quantifiable megalomaniacal
viable style, it's like trying to ride a bull
let's have a dictionary duel after school
check into me a nice Cedar Sinai room
so I can get sick as the flu, spittin the truth
if you ain't got this album, you missing the proof
prepare for your doom my nuclear rocket plumes
glow against the pale background of the moon
toxic fumes spoil complete stocks of fruits, and foods
burning your flammable boxes and booms
got in the groove even though I'm not in the mood
motherfucker you didn't win 'cause I can't lose "
