Killah Priest – Nothing Like It Lyrics

[Killah Priest]
15 wit one in the head, could did it all
No friends were called, then I recalled
Somethin’ smeared on the wall
Close relationships I hated it, we split
Dated this chick, atheist
God stained seven but he played the six
Dated CO’s, left ’em wit bulge
Kept me in clothes, but said I wasn’t respectable
So the sex got cold
Little did I know, I was the next to go
Drivin’, starrin’ up at the horizon
Flyin’, windows down, blastin’ the stereo sound
Pass the carnival, the Merry-Go-Round
Goin’ up the mountain, to the Indian burial ground
Nothin’ but glowin’ eyes on the hounds
Sounds of howls, but turnin’ the heads of owls
Come thru the white clouds
Look what I found? The psychic

There’s nothing like it
There’s nothing like it
One of a kind his mind
And there’s nothing like it

[Killah Priest]
The last days, signs of the time
I’m on some crime, blind by the television
The hell I vision is rivers of fire
Accordin’ to the scriptural writings
There’s no after death for the spirit inside us
The afterlife is those chapters we write
All great place a peace, not that lake full of heat
Could you imagine listenin’ to a seven headed dragon?
Grabbin’, madmen chewin’ their heads off
Less talk, while the communist is stabbin’
Now I think those were metaphors and the letters of Paul
Greece and Rome had Olympics, naked gymnasts
For instance, he would say it, if it related
The race is not given to the swift
But, to them that endure, put on the whole armor
We wrestle not against flesh and blood
He was watchin’ the Olympic Games thru a prison wall
So the dragon heads were their empires
Led every word of God be true and every men the liar


[Killah Priest]
I turn listeners to my prisoners
Doin’ time on my rhymes
Soon as I hit the pen they get to my channels
Stimulatin’ the brain cells
Trained to use well, while writin’ I ask myself
How long is the sentence?
Not until each line is finished
Usually the bars end a little past the margin
Tho the court in my thoughts
The DA is the clean page; the judge is a ink spot
Right where I think plots
Below the thinkers is the hung jury
It comes to me, truly
What makes me write this? The feelin’ inside


Horrible Histories – Flame lyrics

[Verse 1]
In 776BC Olympics were begun
Greece was the only country, so naturally we won
Cheats built bronzes of God Zeus were we honest winners
The answer’s no we had more statues than you’ve had hot dinners
Our games meant truce was called in war a peace every 4 years
But wrestling was so violent that bouts could end in tears
No girls allowed to watch or run that might sound rude
But makes sense when I tell you we competed nude

It’s gonna burn forever
Love for Olympic heroes
We’d like one next however
Sadly it’s Emperor Nero
Hey watch it you two, alright

[Verse 2]
Emperor Nero:
I went from Rome to Greece so I could play them at their games
In 67AD you know I won Olympic fame
Told them to include a contest based on poetry
Not much good for sportsmen no, but brilliant for me
Crashed my racing chariot but still awarded gold
Hey my Olympics my rules
To argue would be bold
I won every medal that was up for grabs
The crowd loved it well they had to or I would have had them stabbed, OK?


Olympic champion that’s me
My games were emperors own round


Think I was bad in 393
Christian Rome had them banned

It’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over, it’s over



[Verse 3]
Baron de Coubertin:
WAIT not so fast

I’m Baron de Coubertin, a famous French historian
I read of the Olympic Games thought I should try restoring them
They’d be just like the old days I said but did propose
That unlike Greeks Victorians should do them wearing clothes
In 1896 we launched the games in dear old Greece
Hoped it would make men more morale as well as less obese
We built a stadium so we could start to play
Games of the modern Olympics which we still have today


Baron de Coubertin:
I’m on my personal glory
But no-one remembers my name


Baron de Coubertin:
So here to finish our story
A man who has gold plated fame

[Verse 4]
Jesse Owens:
I’m Jesse Owens fastest man in 1936
I took home 4 gold medals yeah, but that’s just the basics
What you should know about the fact I was victorious
Is, it made Herr Hitler mad ha it made him furious
Hitler said Berlin should be the games Germanic base
So he could show the world Aryans were the master race
I won in 4 events he had to back pedal
His evil theory destroyed with every medal

It’s gonna burn forever
Olympics are never in doubt
A fire of sporting endeavour
You realise it’s actually gone out
Olympic, Olympic
