nothing is everything

Postby jeff robertson » Thu Aug 13, 2009 3:47 pm

don't risk everything for anything
don't risk everything, your parents say
don't risk everything for anything
cause nothing's worth everything

that's what they always tell you
you hear it all your life
that's what they always tell you
to tell you how to survive

don't risk everything for anything
don't risk everything, your teachers say
don't risk everything for anything
cause nothing's worth everything

you better keep your mouth shut
you better not rock the boat
this ain't no hill to die on
you better do as your told

don't risk everything for anything
don't risk everything, your leaders say
don't risk everything for anything
cause nothing's worth everything

that's what they always told me too
but i'm sick of that shit
i'm gonna find me something to believe in
i'm gonna stand up for it

don't risk everything for anything
don't risk everything, for just anything
don't risk everything for anything
cause something's worth everything

You, poor you!
To be pitied above us all!
You went off on your own path
But now you can't see past your fall

And nor can I pick you up, my friend
Nor can I pick you up
No, I cannot lift you up, my friend
I cannot lift you up

In assimilating a core truth
You factored out the corest
Around you the trees are all withering
But you're missing the beauty of the forest

Nothing isn't everything
All that you've cut down can be made new
Losing isn't everything
You may be nobody, but you're somebody too

I've felt like you do
I've been bounded in by despair
I know the secret to getting out
Is figuring out why you're here

So don't make out
That this death has the final say
The beauty of pain
Is that we know it will soon go away

Unto you was grown a garden
Unto you were woven clothes
Unto you was given life!
You've got glory left to show!
How can you dare breathe this morning air
Yet have the voice to moan

Nothing is everything

You said I was cheating on you with that girl
You said you weren't too blind to see
I know you didn't trust me then
'Cuz she belongs to my best friend and
She means nothing to me

I got nothing left to hold me in these chains
I guess nothing is the key
You left me nothing when you put me out
And nothing is everything to me

You were never happy at least that's how it seems
You always put the blame right on me
Why can't you understand
I just try the best that I can so
Thank you for setting me free

I got nothing left to hold me in these chains
I guess nothing is the key
You left me nothing when you put me out
And nothing is everything to me

Leave me with nothing and I will wear a smile
You can have all of my things
Got no bags to pack, cuz I ain't never coming back so
You can throw away that diamond ring

I got nothing left to hold me in these chains
I guess nothing is the key
You left me nothing when you put me out
And nothing is everything to me
I released my first album on January 26th, 2018.

Nothing Is Everything

We got into our cars; we got into our clothes; we got into our lifestyles, baby
We got into our games; we got into our tunes; we got into our blue rays, baby
But, we’re not happy now, no, we’re not happy now, no, we’re not happy now, oh baby
We need to get back to the time when we had nothing but each other in our minds

And that nothing was everything, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

We need to sell all our cars; we need to donate our clothes; we need to alter our lifestyles, baby
We need to clean up the house; we need to clear the garage; we need to simplify everything
And we’ll be happier now, oh, we’ll be happier now, oh, we’ll be happier now, oh baby
We need to get back to the time when we had nothing but each other in our lives

And that nothing was everything, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

We’ll always be tempted by that brand new talking phone, or that brand new talking dog, or that brand new talking automobile
But they’re just things and we don’t need things to be happy, nothing but each other is everything that we need

And that nothing is everything, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

There are no obligations
There are no hidden fees
There are no limitations
On what you can be
You are free
To be

No one you must report to
Nowhere you must go
Nothing you have to bring with you
Nothing you need to know
You are free
To be

Nothing is everything
Nothing is everything
No lines have been drawn

You are not your possessions
You are not your career
You are not your obsessions
You are not your fear
You are free
To be

Nothing is everything
Nothing is everything
Nothing is everything
Nothing is everything

Nothing is Everything

Nothing is everything,
Are you confused?
Everything is nothing,
What’s in it for you?

No place is everywhere, it bends the mind,
Inside this living space, the flat man survives.
No time is anytime, do what you like,
Hidden deeds exposed before, the flat man arrives.
Genocidal rage, it’s all an act,
Monkey see, monkey do, the dolly’s parked out back.
Dressed out to succeed, win at any cost,
The flat man is here, and yet he is still lost.

Nothing is everything,
Are you confused?
Everything is nothing,
What’s in it for you?

No one is everyone, choice or need,
To vet the differences, the flat man agreed,
No way is anyway, choose left or right,
The sphere arrives on time, the flat man surprised,
Open up the mind, challenge what’s outside,
Wheel, moon, and harmony, or none to decide,
Dressed out in a sack, it will astound,
The flat man is not here, yet he has been found.

Nothing is everything,
It could be true,
Everything is nothing,
What’s it worth to you?

Nothing Is Everything (standard tuning, whattha!?)

VERSE 1 (C-Em, C-E)
some days you feel left alone
and some days you want to be
maybe you just feel empty
come to think like a stone

CHORUS (C-Em-F-G x2, Am-Em-F-G)
Nothing is everything, is everything
Nothing is everything, is everything
is nothing really what you want?

VERSE 2 (C-Em)
maybe you could spare yourself a dime
call up a friend, go out to a pub
be something other than a stub
make you feel like things are fine

CHORUS (C-Em-F-G x2, Am-Em-F-G-Am)
Nothing is everything, is everything
Nothing is everything, is everything
is nothing what you want to call your own?

BRIDGE (C-Am x2, Em-F-G-Am)
seems you're doing all you can
to avoid being a man
with a goal in his hand
speaking of a third degree
letting apprehension free

CHORUS
Nothing is everything, is everything
Nothing is everything, is everything
is this nothing what you really want to hold dear?

Nothing is Everything - Kasper

This triangle's a vicious circle
And I'm on the outside looking in
Tired of playing the same game
That I can never win

I wish it were not
But nothing is all that we've got

You can say nothing is everything
You can say you're not afraid of the fall
You can say nothing is everything
Oh, but you don't believe that at all

Oh we can pretend
That not a year has passed
That it's all the same
That time is not so fast

Can't take a shot
When nothing is all that you've got

I say nothing is everything
I say the rain ain't gonna fall
I say nothing is everything
Oh, but I don't believe that at all

Can't take a shot
When nothing is all that you've got

I say nothing is everything (nothing is everything)
I say the rain ain't gonna fall
I say nothing is everything (nothing is everything)
But I don't believe that at all

Nothing Is Everything - Paco del Stinko

Once I had a girl, but not for long
She took my feelings with her, now they are gone
I could give you a warning tale, buyer beware
But it doesn't matter to me, I just don't care

Nothing is everything to me and nothing is true
At home in the void is where I'm free, how about you
I'm blank and I'm black and blase', I live in the null
There's only tomorrow and today inside of my skull

One time I owned a house, way out on some land
My very own piece of the dream, perfect and so grand
A hurricane blew it away, nothing remained
I didn't shrug I just walked away, I did not complain

Nothing is everything to me and nothing is true
At home in the void is where I'm free, how about you
I'm blank and I'm black and blase', I live in the null
There's only tomorrow and today inside of my skull

All I have is zero
A cold empty vacuum
I don't know anything else
I've accepted my doom

Once I reached enlightenment, once I saw the light
Once I reached the heights with friends, now I don't even try

Nothing is everything to me and nothing is true
At home in the void is where I'm free, how about you
I'm blank and I'm black and blase', I live in the null
There's only tomorrow and today inside of my skull
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Nothing Is Everything
(c)2009 Pathetic Wannabees

The jam's got the pulp
the jelly's got the juice
but pre-serves' got it all baby
Giant Hunks of Fruit!

[chorus]
Don't tell me you need nothin'
When everything's what you take
The lovin' I've been givin'
ain't equal to what you make

Everybody loiters casually
Before they start the race
Everybody says no
till you punch them in the face

[chorus]
Don't tell me you need nothin'
When everything's what you take
The lovin' I've been givin'
ain't equal to what you make

[break]
I was just lookin' for a little something
to make it down the road
But now you're writing me a starring role
in another Book of Job

So leave me just a little bit
Juice, the pulp, the hunks
Nothing is Everything
Once you've become a monk

[chorus]
Don't tell me you need nothin'
When everything's what you take
The lovin' I've been givin'
ain't equal to what you make

You don't have to watch your wealth
'Cuz there is nowhere to lose it.
You say the same things to yourself
As if the next time will prove it.

It's been a damn good while since your way was alright by them.
You let the signs convince you of the coming end.

But that's not it.
Nothing is.

You can't stand to see things be
Because the peace is preceding the beast
And we need to believe
The same things you're feeling.

But that's not it.
Nothing is.

You know he made a lot before the bubble burst
I guess he put it all in foolish things
And lost it all when the bottom came fallin out
It's a quick way to learn
That nothing is everything

You know he told himself he could not live without her
But she left him in the early spring
He thought she loved him, not just what he had
It's a quick way to learn
That nothing is everything

It vanished in thin air - it might as well never have been there
Smoke and mirrors - magic and pixie dust
I guess in the end all we've got is us

You know his sky is still blue and water is still wet
And his hair still blows in the wind and birds still sing
When you break it all down and open up your eyes
It's a quick thing to learn
That nothing is everything

It vanished in thin air - it might as well never have been there
Smoke and mirrors - magic and pixie dust
I guess in the end all we've got is us
And that ain't nothing
No that's everything

nothing is everything - roymond
(for Les Paul, loosely based on a recent quote by him)

somethings are every where
somethings happen every day
somethings never go away
and somethings never stay
.
for somethings I don't have a care
and these are things I would never say
if something got broke today
something else we'll have to play
.
nothing is everything to me
nowhere is everywhere to me
no one is everyone to me
can't you see
can't you see
.
when you're my age
and see the end in sight
how do you live with it?
just live this time...it's right
the past is gone
and the future isn't yet
you ain't gonna change it, no
no matter what you bet
.
nothing is everything to me
nowhere is everywhere to me
no one is everyone to me
can't you see
.
the most obvious time to live is right now
.
nothing is everything to me
nowhere is everywhere to me
no one is everyone to me
nothing is everything to me
