Videos

These are videos (songs) that I think really sum up a lot of the root causes of problems in the world...

Unforgiven
Metallica

I find the lyrics to this song so telling...You so often hear people praising child-rearing methods that are strict and punitive...but this is the reality of what that type of environment does to a child...




Lyrics:
New blood joins this earth 
And quickly he's subdued 
Through constant pain disgrace 
The young boy learns their rules 

With time the child draws in 
This whipping boy done wrong 
Deprived of all his thoughts 
The young man struggles on and on 

He's known 
Oooh a vow unto his own 
That never from this day 
His will they'll take away 

What I've felt 
What I've known 
Never shined through in what I've shown 
Never be 
Never see 
Won't see what might have been 

What I've felt 
What I've known 
Never shined through in what I've shown 
Never free 
Never me 
So I dub thee unforgiven 

They dedicate their lives 
To running all of his 
He tries to please them all 
This bitter man he is 

Throughout his life the same 
He's battled constantly 
This fight he cannot win 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/m/metallica/the+unforgiven_20092057.html ] 
A tired man they see no longer cares 
The old man then prepares 
To die regretfully 
That old man here is me 

What I've felt 
What I've known 
Never shined through in what I've shown 
Never be 
Never see 
Won't see what might have been 

What I've felt 
What I've known 
Never shined through in what I've shown 
Never free 
Never me 
So I dub thee unforgiven

Remember Everything
Five Finger Death Punch

I find the video here so true...the young boy starts off with a blank canvas and clean clothes and beings attempting to make beauty but ends up scribbling and covered in black mess...full of rage...and in the end with the spinning camera going between dad and grown angry son you see the cycle that caused this... :(



Dear mother, I love you 

I'm sorry, I wasn't good enough 
Dear Father, forgive me 
Cause in your eyes, I just never added up 
In my heart I know I failed you, but you left me here alone 

[Chorus] 
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain? 
Cause I remember everything. 
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets? 
Cause I remember everything. 

But dear brother, just don't hate me 
For never standing by you, or being by your side 
Dear sister, please don't blame me 
I only did, what I thought was truly right 
It's a long and lonely road, when you know you walk alone 
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/f/five+finger+death+punch/remember+everything_20984310.html ] 
[Chorus] 
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain? 
Cause I remember everything. 
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets? 
Cause I remember everything. 

I feel like running away 
I'm still so far from home 
You say I'll never change but what the fuck do you know? 
I'll burn it all to the ground, before I let you run 
Please forgive me, I can't forgive you now. 
[Chorus] 
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain? 
Cause I remember everything. 
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets? 
Cause I remember everything. 
It all went by so fast; I still can't change the past 
I always will remember, everything 
If we could start again, would that change the end? 
We remember everything.

"Cat's In The Cradle"

My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say "I'm gonna be like you, Dad
You know I'm gonna be like you"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home, Dad
I don't know when, but we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play
can you teach me to throw", I said "Not today
I got a lot to do", he said, "That's ok
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
And said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home, Dad
I don't know when, but we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then

Well, he came from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
"Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while"
He shook his head and said with a smile
"What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin' home son
I don't know when, but we'll get together then, Dad
You know we'll have a good time then

I've long since retired, my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job's a hassle and kids have the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
When you comin' home son
I don't know when, but we'll get together then, Dad
We're gonna have a good time then

"When The Children Cry"

Little child
Dry your crying eyes
How can I explain
The fear you feel inside
'Cause you were born
Into this evil world
Where man is killing man
And no one knows just why

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

Little child
You must show the way
To a better day
For all the young
'Cause you were born
For the world to see
That we all can live
With love and peace

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children sing
The new world begins

What have we become
Just look what we have done
All that we destroyed
You must build again

No more presidents
And all the wars will end
One united world under God

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
'Cause when the children fight
Let them know it ain't right
When the children pray
Let them know the way
'Cause when the children sing
Then the new world begins
