Coronavirus update: Anzac Day services cancelled, stock market cops record drop while Trump tells shoppers to ‘just relax’


Australia

The Australian stock market has suffered its biggest one-day drop since the 1987 share market crash, as Prime Minister Scott Morrison calls for calm and travel bans to combat the COVID-19 pandemic come into effect.

Monday’s key moments

Anzac Day commemorations cancelled in most states

The RSL branches across Victoria, NSW, Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia have cancelled some Anzac Day events.

While some dawn services will still go ahead, members of the public have been asked not to attend.

The move, which comes more than a month out from the services, has been made to try and limit the spread of coronavirus and to protect older veterans.

“On April 25, when you can’t go to a local dawn service, the RSL is asking that instead you tune in via radio, social media or television and take a moment to reflect on the service and sacrifice of our veterans and those who are still serving today,” RSL Victoria state president Dr Robert Webster said.

The Australian War Memorial is yet to make a final decision, but said it would act on the health advice of the ACT and federal governments.

Supermarkets to bring in more staff, special shopping times to deal with panic-buyers

Things have, at times, become nasty in some supermarkets as shoppers rushed to hoard items over fears of shortages.

The coronavirus pandemic has lead to panic-buying and scuffles in the aisles so this week Coles and Woolworths are opening exclusively for the elderly and those with a disability for one hour each morning.

“We know many of our elderly customers have been missing out on essential items when they shop,” Woolworths Supermarkets managing director Claire Peters said.

“This temporary measure will give them, and those with a disability, the opportunity to shop before our stores officially open — helping them obtain the essential items they need most in a less crowded environment.”

Coles is also hiring an extra 5,000 casual workers.

Boarding schools could become ‘like cruise ships’

Some parents with children in boarding schools have been told to expect a call to bring them home to prevent a “cruise ship-like” scenario, Association of Independent Schools of NSW chief executive Geoff Newcombe says.

The school names have not been announced as final preparations for remote schooling are still underway and parents are yet to be informed.

Coronavirus questions answered
Breaking down the latest news and research to understand how the world is living through an epidemic, this is the ABC’s Coronacast.

However, the ABC understands several private schools across Australia — so far, as many as 10 — will contact parents on Monday night or Tuesday morning to tell them they are sending students home to start remote learning, which will commence later this week.

“The Department of Health has made it clear to us that they understand that boarding schools have to be considered in a slightly different context to day schools,” Dr Newcombe told the ABC.

“If one boarder became ill then of course health has told us that boarding schools would be put in lockdown similar to the cruise ships.”

The ABC understands NSW Health is formalising advice for boarding schools, which the association will pass on to schools later on Monday or on Tuesday morning.

Airport chaos as Trump urges people not to hoard goods and to ‘just relax’

US President Donald Trump has told Americans to stop panic-buying supplies as the fallout from the spread of coronavirus causes chaos at airports across the country.

Increased screening measures have caused huge delays at major US airports, like Chicago’s O’Hare International where about 3,000 travellers returning from Europe were stuck inside customs for hours over the weekend.

Mr Trump has moved to reassure people that grocers would stay open and stocked.

“You don’t have to buy so much,” Mr Trump said.

“Take it easy. Just relax.”

ASX down after record fall as US Federal Reserve cuts interest rate

The Australian stock market has shed $165 billion, starting the week with its largest ever daily drop as coronavirus fears continue to hammer markets.

The ASX opened 7.12 per cent down but bounced back slightly to 5 per cent down by 11:25am (AEDT).

However, by the end of the day’s trading it had closed down 9.7 per cent at 5,120 points, in the largest daily percentage fall on record.

The broader All Ordinaries also had its largest one-day fall since the 1987 stock market crash, ending 9.5 per cent down and losing $165 billion in value.

The big four bank stocks all lost more than 10 per cent and energy stocks were also hit hard.

Travel-related companies were sharply lower following the announcement of forced self-isolation for all people entering Australia from overseas.

The market fall came after the US Federal Reserve slashed interest rates by a full percentage point in a bid to help the economy withstand the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The RBA is expected to announce further policy measures on Thursday to support the economy.

States and territories issue emergency declarations

South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory have all issued emergency declarations due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The declarations give the states and territories powers to detain and penalise people for breaking quarantine rules as well as restrict public movement and ban mass gatherings.

Daniel Andrews said the state of emergency would remain in place as long as necessary.

Yesterday SA Premier Steven Marshall said coronavirus would be treated as a public health emergency.

This morning ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr followed suit and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews declared a state of emergency due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Mr Andrews said the state of emergency would come into effect from midday today and run for at least four weeks.

Western Australia has also declared a state of emergency and emergency powers have been invoked in New South Wales to force the immediate cancellation of public events of more than 500 people.

Those who defy the cancellation order face fines of up to $11,000.

Patient who travelled to Hamilton Island tests positive for coronavirus

Queensland Health authorities are attempting to trace people who may have come into contact with a man diagnosed with coronavirus who recently travelled to Hamilton Island, off the coast of tropical north Queensland.

The 36-year-old is now being treated in Mackay Base Hospital.

ABC understands the patient recently travelled from New South Wales where they were first tested.

The case was not included in Queensland’s daily tally as it is being handled by New South Wales.

A statement posted by the Mackay Hospital and Health Service said authorities were retracing the patient’s steps.

“Contact tracing is well underway,” the statement said.

“This means that we are directly contacting people who are known to have been in close contact with the person while they might have been infectious.

“If there are further public health alerts, we’ll let you know.”

Scott Morrison calls for coronavirus calm

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said Australians need to “help each other out” as the nation contends with the spread of coronavirus.

“A state of emergency is not a state of panic,” Mr Morrison said.

“A state of emergency puts in place special powers for state governments to help manage the spread of a health epidemic.”

He also urged shoppers to stop panic buying, as supermarket chains announced restricted opening hours solely for elderly people and those with a disability.

“Let’s all look after each other and be respectful to each other and help each other out,” Mr Morrison said.

Mr Morrison also announced that he would meet with the Treasurer and Finance Minister this afternoon to discuss further economic measures, following last week’s $17 billion stimulus package.

The Prime Minister will also relocate to Canberra to be closer to bureaucrats and make it easier to conduct meetings of the National Security Committee of Cabinet.

Visitors could be banned from aged care facilities

Health authorities are considering whether to restrict visitation to aged care facilities to protect elderly people from the spread of the coronavirus.

Deputy chief medical officer Professor Paul Kelly said chief medical officers from around the nation would meet in person this afternoon to consider what more should be done to protect high-risk groups.

“There are a range of measures that we put in place in flu seasons when there’s a large number of influenza cases in the community or indeed if there is an outbreak within an aged care facility,” he said.

Addressing media at a press briefing in Canberra, Professor Kelly also said the Government needed to be “careful and prudent” about its use of testing.

After one testing clinic was opened, 1,600 people were tested but just one was found to be positive.

“You need to look at where you get your best bang for your buck,” he said.

He declined a request to elaborate, saying only that “we’re continuing to test”.

Sydney school closed, but most remain open

While large gatherings are banned, most schools and universities will remain open.

Despite that, a primary school in Sydney’s south-west was closed this morning, after a visitor tested positive for coronavirus.

St Christopher’s Catholic Primary School, in Panania, is closed for cleaning today.

Last Thursday afternoon, about 40 staff from different schools attended a professional development event at the school and at the weekend one of those people tested positive for coronavirus.

According to modelling from the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is no evidence that Hong Kong — which closed schools — was more successful in containing the virus than Singapore, which did not.

Aussie travellers face uncertainty

Thousands of Australians travelling overseas are weighing up their options for returning home, amid news they must self-isolate for 14 days when they arrive back in the country.

When Adelaide nurse Marcelle left home for Thailand just over a week ago, she closely monitored travel advice before she left.

“We kept an eye on Smart Traveller and it was a moderate risk for Thailand — there was no warning about not going, it was just to exercise a normal degree of caution,” she said.

“We did um and ah, but thought, ‘OK, we’re guided by the government website.’ So this has sort of come as a bit of a shock.”

Marcelle is in Railay in southern Thailand and now faces the prospect or returning home to self-isolation at a time when her workplace needs staff to help deal with the outbreak.

“I’m not sure what it means in terms of work, is it paid leave, is it sick leave? Luckily I’ve got sick leave available,” she said.

“Even things like how do we get from the airport to home, do we have to wear a mask in the taxi?

“I don’t think the enormity of it will hit until we’re actually home.”

A-League and W-League to play behind closed doors, NRL players face pay cut

The A-League and W-League will continue to be played despite the coronavirus outbreak, with games taking place in empty stadiums, Football Federation Australia (FFA) has said.

FFA chief executive officer James Johnson said the game was facing an “unprecedented challenge” and warned further measures may be enacted as the situation developed.

“This is an unprecedented time and extremely complex for the sport and also the society at large,” he said.

“We anticipate further decisions as the days and weeks go on because we really don’t know how this virus will evolve.”

With the uncertainty around what will happen, NRL boss Todd Greenberg has warned of significant financial and commercial impacts, including reducing players’ pay.

Cutting salaries would be an extreme measure but if matches are cancelled, it could be one of the consequences.

“We have a number of games we have to fulfil to provide content to our broadcasters, and the broadcasters pay us a fee for that,” he said.

“Clearly, if we don’t provide the content as scheduled, there are commercial impacts to that.”

Festival featuring Crowded House and Alanis Morissette cancelled

For the first time in 30 years, the Bluesfest music festival will not take place this year.

The event has been cancelled due to the public health act order the NSW Government enacted on Monday in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The festival, which drew more than 105,000 people to Byron Bay across five days in 2019, was set to feature a bill that included US megastars Dave Matthews Band, local icons Crowded House and punk legend Patti Smith.

In a statement, festival director Peter Noble said it was “obvious” the festival, set to run April 9-13, could not go on.

“We are heartbroken as we believe we were presenting one of the best ever bills of talent for you,” he said.

“We are now working through how to move forward and to give you details. I thank you for allowing us enough time to get everything in place for the best possible outcome for everyone.”

Nearly 1,500 now dead in Italy, shortage of intensive care beds

Italian authorities say they are worried about how much longer the country’s strained health systems can cope with the coronavirus outbreak.

Sunday’s 368 new deaths brought the country’s death toll to 1,441, with 24,747 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

While the virus has begun spreading rapidly across Europe, Italy remains the second most heavily affected country after China, where the illness first emerged, and the outbreak has shown no signs of slowing.

Lombardy, the heavily populated area around the financial capital Milan, has been the worst-affected region with 1,218 deaths.

Despite Italy’s lockdown, Pope Francis has visited two churches in Rome to pray for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.

Britain to isolate older people

Britain is planning to isolate older people “within weeks”, and will move to put anyone diagnosed with coronavirus into quarantine.

British Heath Secretary Matt Hancock said people aged over 70 would be shielded from the virus by being forced to self-isolate for up to four months, with an announcement “in the coming weeks”.

Your questions on coronavirus answered:

The number of deaths of Britons with coronavirus jumped by 14 to 35, while the total number of people diagnosed rose by 20 per cent to 1,372, health authorities said on Sunday.

Europe ramping up isolation measures

European nations are closing bars and restaurants, and tightening borders.

Europe is now the epicentre of the outbreak, and the death toll from the disease has gone up dramatically in the last 24 hours.

  • Health authorities in Spain say deaths from COVID-19 have doubled in 24 hours — a day after the Government declared a state of emergency and took extraordinary measures to limit movement
  • Germany has announced it will restrict border entries from neighbouring countries
  • Austria is banning gatherings of more than five people
  • Despite widespread restrictions in France, voters have gone to the polls for local elections
  • In the Netherlands and Belgium, gyms and cinemas are closed as well as most shops — excluding those selling food and medicine
  • Slovenia’s public transport system has been closed and Scandinavian Airlines, SAS, has announced it is suspending most of its activities

Iran sees largest single-day jump

Iran has reported its biggest single day jump in fatalities, with another 113 deaths, bringing its death toll to more than 700 and there are fears the pandemic could overwhelm health facilities in the country.

Elsewhere in the Middle East, two of the most sacred sites in Islam, the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, have been closed until further notice.

Germany shooting leaves six dead, several injured


Germany

Six people were killed and another two wounded in a shooting in the town of Rot am See in Germany’s south-west, police say.

The suspect’s parents were among the dead and the other victims also were believed to be relatives.

A man called police shortly after 12.45pm (local time) on Friday and told them he had killed several people, regional police chief Reiner Moeller said at a news conference.

Police kept the man on the line and, when they arrived at the scene several minutes later, arrested a 26-year-old German national as the suspect in the slayings, Mr Moeller said.

Officers found the bodies of six people — three women and three men, ages 36 to 69 — in and behind a building where a bar is located.

Another two people were hurt, and one of them has life-threatening injuries, Mr Moeller said. The suspect also threatened two children, ages 12 and 14.

The suspect had a licence to own firearms as a shooting club member, Mr Moeller said. Authorities believe he used a semi-automatic pistol.

“We can’t say anything so far about the motive,” he said.

“Because of the victims and the wounded, we believe it was a family drama, since according to what we know at present all were related to each other.”

The suspect’s mother and father were among the dead and there was no indication that there were additional perpetrators, police said.

Rot am See, a town of several thousand, is located some 135 kilometres south-east of Frankfurt.

Gun control laws in Germany are among the most stringent in Europe.

In 2002, a massacre of 16 people by a 19-year-old shooter at a high school in the city of Erfurt saw the country increase restrictions on gun ownership.

A 17-year-old killed 15 people at a high school in the southwestern town of Winnenden in 2009, seeing a further tightening of gun laws.

[Intro: Coolio]

Yo cuz, Ringsend and Compton on a track… What the fuck’s up with that?

[Verse 1: Casper]

Where I come from bricks get danced on
Then sold by the fellas with the amps on
To be bought to be bought by moi
So I get me hole quicker than a tampon
I never gave a bollox about politics
Cause all I ever wanted was me bollox
Licked
Mr. Cool’s got the big bollox
Step back ‘fore he fills you full of hollow tips

[Verse 2: Coolio]

Pitty pat, pitty pat
Hard on the kitty cat
Triple X got the pussy gushing on a kitty mat
Pretty face, long hair thighs and the titties fat
Got her ass screaming who is he? Where’d you get him at?
Then she start yelling it don’t matter just don’t put him back, got the pussy full is he Irish? Or is he black?
I guess it don’t matter
Just as long as he a pussy mat
Player pimp pulling up in a killer Cadillac
He’s mine he’s mine I want em all the time
The pussy belong to him no ninety-nine
He on that gangster shit
He give me gangster dick
Oh what am I to do?
Now I got a gangster clit
Do it well all the time make the pussy swell
Then it’s back to the house in the beat

[Bridge: Casper]

Make a bomb in the kip then make that shit blow
Fucking pretty women and I’m dipping out their window

But I can never love I’m too freezing man

Don’t ask why pal it has to be done
Married women wanna suck me like a Capri-sun
They want the young bull
They want me I run the clubs while their beer-belly fellas are running straight to the club, (Gangsta, Gangsta)
I won’t sleep on a bed if the sheets aren’t silk
Sleep with a youngone if I know she’s not filth
All day sitting on me hole no guilt
All day bitching in me ear I’m not built to be dealing with no hood rat
They love me but I can’t love back
Asking will I ever come back?
I never come back

[Chorus: Casper]

[Outro: Coolio]

It’s not surprising to see Russ releasing a new single. Since his last album “There’s Really a Wolf”, released back in May of last year fans have been railing for more jingle from the multitalented rapper/ singer /song writer/ producer. The rapper will be touring Europe in February through to March, afterwards he will be back in the US where he will perform at the The Governors Ball Music Festival 2018 at Randall’s Island, New York.

Below is the new music video, watch and leave your comments.

NF – No Name


[Verse]
Look, people ask me what the future is
All I know is I’ll be doin’ this
All I know is things are moving quick
That’s convenient for me ’cause that’s how I live
Now they see me out here movin’ up
You don’t like me, that makes two of us
Time change, yeah, I can’t adjust
Yo, it’s who you are not who you was, oh my
Yeah, just went to Europe, they said the single is working
I think I’m learning, I am way more than what people might think when they look on the surface
What is my purpose? Yeah
That is a question that I have been asking myself and it hurts
‘Cause it’s prolly something I should already know but I don’t know it yet, I’m tryna grow as a person, woo!
I’m sick of people tellin’ people I’m here ’cause of marketing dollars, oh
You think that everything is gonna blow just ’cause you market it harder? No
I got my hands in everything, now they out here tryna get to me
Stop tryna lecture me
You don’t compare to my level of thinking, so why do you think you compare to my energy, huh?
Small circle, but the number’s growin’
Fame called me, I’m like, "How you doin’?"
Hung up on him, I ain’t ready for it
I’ll get back to that when I make album four
Less talking, I’ve been workin’ more
Better me is what I’m workin’ towards
Y’all judgin’, but we not in court, no, we not in court, oh Lord!
Last couple years, let’s recap
I make a livin’ off of writin’ out my regrets
I’m doin’ me, I don’t care where the scene’s at
Try to give me feedback, I don’t really need that
I used to walk on stage in a V-neck
I used to wear a lil’ tie with a black vest
I came a long way, why you lookin’ upset?
I’m tryna paint a picture, get the vision, you ain’t hear it yet, woo!
Look, hold up, hold up, wait a minute, please
Flow’s switchin’, I got ADD
Brain scatters when you play the beat
It don’t matter what you say to me
I’ll be doin’ this at 83
I’ve been doin’ this since ABC’s
In the major leagues doin’ major things, don’t play with me, woo!
I’m livin’ life in the fast lane
Wake up every morning thinkin’ I’ma have a bad day
Drive my own car, I don’t like the valet
Parked, then I go into my mind with an AK
Shoot every thought in my head then it rotates
Losin’ it all, but I think that I’m okay
Who is involved? I don’t know, but I’m insane
Poof! And I’m gone, wanna call me a no name, what!?
I’m prolly not what you thought
I’m prolly not what you thought
I used to judge everybody that wasn’t like me ’til I learned it was wrong
Girl told me I should get it together and get out the dark
I’m tryna give her my heart
That’s when I sit in my car, writin’ for hours until I can barely talk
I mean, where do I start?
Feels like I’m fallin’ apart
Act like my image is hard
I always put up my guard
Even when talkin’ to God
Sit in my room and I plot
Everything that I’m not
Comes out in the music I jot
I give it all that I got
I give it all that I got!
I’m tryna think out the box, no!
Yeah, I got people standing outside a bus screaming my name
I don’t come out and take pictures, they tell me I changed
I don’t smile in VIPs, you get mad like, "You know what I paid?"
Guess I don’t know what to say
Guess I don’t know what to say
I leave it all on the stage
I leave it all on the stage


Demarco Attempted To Crowd Surf and Failed Miserably [Watch]


Artists sometimes get so pump by the crowd that they can’t help themselves from crowd surfing.

Dancehall deejay Demarco was performing on tour in Europe recently when he attempted to crowd surf and… Well, it didn’t go down so well for him. Perhaps he should have taken heed from Post Malone who recently stage dived at one of his concerts and no one caught him. Luckily for him, he didn’t get hurt and got up and continue his performance.

In the video clip below, you can see Demarco performing and the crowd going wild. He then struggled to get to higher ground to position himself for a stage dive into the crowd, possibly standing one of the speaker boxes on the stage. “No Demarco no don’t do it, no Demarco no, no man no,” the DJ yelled before the “Good Book” deejay dived into the crowd. Luckily for him, the brave fans caught him but clearly, they couldn’t support him long enough for him to surf the crowd.

Musicals – Chess – The Story Of Chess lyrics


The Arbiter:
Each game of chess
Means there’s one less
Variation left to be played.

Each day got through
Means one or two
Less mistakes remain to be made.

Soloists 1 & 2:
Not much is known
Of early days of chess
Beyond a fairly vague report–

Soloist 3:
That fifteen hundred years ago
Two princes fought,
Tough brothers,
For a Hindu throne.

Soloist 4:
The mother cried,
For no one really likes
Their offspring fighting
To the death.
She begged to stop
The slaughter
With her every breath.

Soloist 5:
But sure enough
One brother died.

Soloists 4 & 6:
Sad beyond belief,
She told her winning son,

Soloist 6:
“You have caused such grief
I can’t forgive
This evil thing you’ve done.”

Soloist 3 & 7:
He tried to explain
How things had really been.

Soloist 7:
But he tried in vain,
No words of his
Could mollify the queen.

Soloist 8:
And so he asked
The wisest men he knew
The way to lessen her distress.

The Arbiter:
They told him he’d be
Pretty certain to impress
By using model soldiers
On a checkered board
To show it was his brother’s fault–

All:
They thus invented chess

Male Soloists:
Chess displayed no inertia,
Soon spread to Persia,
Then west.

Female Soloists:
Next the Arabs refined it,
Thus redesigned, it
Progressed.

Soloist 9:
Still further yet,
And when Constantinople
Fell in 1453,
One would have noticed
Every other refugee
Included in his bags a set.

Soloist 10:
Once in the hands,
And in the minds
Of leading figures
Of the Renaissance–

Soloist 2:
The spirit and the speed
Of chess made swift advance
Through all of Europe’s vital lands.

Female Soloists: Male Soloists:
Where we must record Each game of chess,
The game was further changed– Means there’s one less
Right across the board Variation left to be played.
The western touch
Upon the pieces ranged.

Soloists:
King, and queen, and rook,
And bishop, knight, and pawn
All took on the look
We know today–
The modern game was born.

The Arbiter:
And in the end,
We see a game
That started by mistake
In Hindustan–
And boosted in the main
By what is now Iran–
Become the simplest,
And most complicated
Pleasure yet devised
For just the kind of mind
Who would appriciate this
Well-researched, and fascinating
Yarn.

[Spoken]
The World Chess Federation, of which I have the honor
Of being president, announces that the next world championship
Will take place here in Merano, Italy.

The current world champion Frederick Trumper of the United
States of America will defend his title again Anatoly Sergievsky
Of the Soviet Union.

The first player to achieve six victories will be declared
Champion. The first game will begin on March 27, 1979.

Welcome, world, to Merano!


David Brent – Slough lyrics


More convenient that a Tesco express
Close to Windsor but the properties less
Keeps the businesses of Britain great
It’s got Europe’s biggest trading estate

It doesn’t matter where you’re from
You wanna work? Then come along
The station’s just got a new floor
And the motorway runs by your door

And you know just where you’re heading
It’s equidistance ‘tween London and Reading

Oh Slough
My kind of town
I don’t know how, anyone could put you down

To the West you got Taplow and Bray
You got Hillingdon the other way
It’s a brilliant place to live and work
It was in Bucks now officially it’s Berks

Don’t listen to what the critics say
Like it’s soulless, and boring and grey
See for yourself, what you waiting for?
We’re on the Bath road, that’s the A4

And you know just where you’ll be heading
It’s equidistance ‘tween London and Reading

Oh Slough
My kind of town
I don’t know how, anyone could put you down

Oh Slough
My kind of town
I don’t know how, anyone could put you down

Slough [x4]


Nines – These Keys (feat. Berner) (One Foot Out Album)


[Chorus: Nines]
How can I give this all up
This is all I wanted to be
This music money isn’t enough
I just can’t get caught with these keys
With these keys
I just can’t get caught with these keys
With these keys, with these keys

[Verse 1: Nines]
Ask my nigga Nunu how we went through all them rubber bands
Remember when I kop the Ice hublot with the rubber band
Made 30K this week I’m nothing like them other man
I’m on a different level now but I don’t think they understand
Last year I would have stressed my pockets if I copped a Range
Funny how in a couple months, how luck could change
Old niggas on the track, bragging ’bout watch and chain
Next album I’ll probably rap about yachts and planes
Pull up on the block, all them yungens circle ’round the Porsche
Came a long way from the Gilera with the loud exhaust
Shit was slow, mandem was moving like some scavengers
Never going broke again I’m cool with all the traffickers
Jazzy said chill and let them young bucks spray them tools
Think they hating now, watch when I upgrade my jewels
My lil’ niggas know a nigga spend a monkey on some shoes
Trappin’ from a distance can’t see them junkies from these views
Grew up ’round some of the best niggas to do it
Now we fucking with them Albo’s they like the Mexicans of Europe
They don’t play me on the radio but I don’t give a fuck
I’ve buried P, went broke, then I had to dig it out

[Chorus: Nines]
How can I give this all up
This is all I wanted to be
This music money isn’t enough
I just can’t get caught with these keys
With these keys
I just can’t get caught with these keys
With these keys, with these keys

[Verse 2: Berner]
Empty boxes got me nauseous
Six burner phones in my faucet
We buy phones and we wash ’em
Digging holes to find a million dollars [?], ain’t sweet
I’ve been broke, same clothes for a week
Fresh off the plane I see badges fuck the D.E.A
This piece costs a couple more G’s, when it leave the States
Started from the bottom, with a key of yay
I’m ridin’ round dirty in this Honda, I don’t need the Wraith
They grabbed Stack, we just laughed when he beat the case
Cookies with the cheese, [?] bring me strains
Bring the jack back, I’m smoking for the JA
Black hoodie with the AK
Dirty money bring the devil out, bag the lemonade
Put my gloves on, then we send ’em out
80 for a 20 pack, yeah I’m talking locally
Here in the city, I’m still getting [?]
The rest of them getting 2, they can’t even sell ’em though
I could never sell ’em low, I’d rather be selling blow
Talking on the telephone, now he’s never coming home
The dope gang dirty yeah, they don’t love you until you’re gone

[Chorus: Nines]
How can I give this all up
This is all I wanted to be
This music money isn’t enough
I just can’t get caught with these keys
With these keys
I just can’t get caught with these keys
With these keys, with these keys


L2B – The Journey lyrics


[Hook]
The world keeps turning, I’m just holding on,
Hold on..
This life’s a journey that keeps going on,
Hold on..

[Verse 1]
I got a lyrical addiction, I’m a punchline fiend,
Even in my dreams, I come up with rhyme schemes,
I try to be calm, but my mind is like a mob scene
Full of obscene gestures and loud screams in dark streets
From wild teens whose moms can;t stop them
From robbing people just because they want nice things,
They’d sacrifice a life to live like kings, but
That’s not the song that I sing,
Sometimes I just need to switch to a positive mind frame
And change the way I think.
See I’m excited for what life brings,
I’m trying to travel the world and go sight-seeing
And see what it’s like to be in different cultures and ways of life,
Traveling in first class flights, that sounds nice.
Walking through foreign lands, Europe and Japan,
Got as much Seoul as South Korea,
Looking down from the Namsan Tower,
I love where I’m from, but I got bigger plans,
I’m trying to spin a globe and just go wherever my finger lands.

[Hook]
The world keeps turning, I’m just holding on,
Hold on..
This life’s a journey that keeps going on,
Hold on..

[Verse 2]
I got so many dope verses, think I need an intervention,
Not to mention, never cared for being center of attention,
But I’ll deliver a hundred and ten percent, even when
It’s a challenge and the pressure is high, like hypertension.
Caught up living above the influence of reality,
Love, hugs, peace, drugs, and LSD,
Bright colors being smudged without paint brushes,
Just me under a spell while I’m staring at trees,
See life is one giant canvas to me,
Hand me a can of paint and watch me transform a
Blank space landscape in to something out of fantasy,
Something you’re seeing with your eyes, but still can’t believe.
I’m in the Amazon rain forest, laying underneath the canopy,
Staring up at the sky, wondering why can’t life always be this simple,
Thinking back to everything that I’ve been through,
But with endless possibilities, I feel like there’s nothing I can’t do.

[Hook]
The world keeps turning, I’m just holding on,
Hold on..
This life’s a journey that keeps going on,
Hold on..

[Bridge]
Life is just a journey,
Life is just a journey, so stay..
Life is just a journey,
Life is just a journey, so stay..
Life is just a journey, so stay..
Life is just a journey, so stay strong..
Life is just a journey, so stay..
Life is just a journey, so stay strong..

[Hook]
The world keeps turning, I’m just holding on,
Hold on..
This life’s a journey that keeps going on,
Hold on..

Many men wanna kill me, I don’t know
Why they trying to get me I just blow
Money and coke up in my nose
Percs in my system, I’m never slow
Golden [?] running round the floor

She called me up and called me on the phone
She fucked me over once, someone that I know

Soldiers from white snow
Moola in my rover
With Adamn killing my soul
Fuck with Lean I break your bones
Fuck with Lean I break your bones
Moola in my rover

It’s K-A, check, check, check it out

[Verse 1]
Listen, yeah, yeah, you dun know the Myspace
I’m a vet MC niggas can’t violate
I’m two albums deep already
And how ever many singles under my name
Yeah, yeah, you dun know the my K
Fire for no reason, I’m nice
Can’t stop me like a Hummer in drive
Gone like I’m roadrunner in spikes
Yeah, yeah put me in the right lane
I’ll still breeze on a beat with a bang
I might perform my beats with a band
There ain’t no MC deeper than man
Hot like the bottom of the pan
And I’m still totalling on like twang

[Hook]

Man, look at my Myspace, my fanbase is swollen like clams
With old school fans and new school fans
I got UK fans and Europe fans
I got older fans and younger fans
And you dun know I’m repping for my Myspace fam

[Verse 2]

Yeah, yeah you dun know the vibe ain’t right in a rave on stage if I ain’t
On it with DJ Medonit, excitement levels we go beyond it
Enrol my shows like college, I show you how to do this son
Come like dumb, leave like a boffin
Cause I’m a teacher like KRS-One, one

Haha, I’m just having fun
Know why? Cause I’m MC number 1
Mc number 1
Yeah I know I didn’t finish that verse but I don’t give a shit
I wrote that shit whilst Mikey was beefing on the phone with his chick
HAHA! It’s K-A, It’s K-A

Comments Off on Skull And Bones – Zero Point Energy lyrics


[Verse]
There is a kind of energy called zero point
Max Planck in Germany conceived it in nineteen eleven
By Quantum Mechanics it was foreseen and validated
It holds the key of antigravity and limitless energy

[Bridge]
The Military Industrial Complex would do anything to conceal it
Assassination, wars, depose governments to hide it from you

[Chorus]
No more fossil fuels to polute our world with Zero Point Energy
Atomic Power will be a thing from the past with Zero Point Energy
We would fly trough the skies powered by Zero Point Energy
A new age ahead exploring the space with Zero Point Energy

[Solo]

[Chorus]
No more fossil fuels to polute our world with Zero Point Energy
Atomic Power will be a thing from the past with Zero Point Energy
We would fly trough the skies powered by Zero Point Energy
A new age ahead exploring the space with Zero Point Energy

[Verse]
In Second World War germans developed some prototypes
Its plans were spread across Europe as spoils of War
Wikileaks Podesta’s e-mails shows that the US Gov. Knows
Stop being selfish and greedy , humankind need to be free

[Bridge]
The Military Industrial Complex would do anything to conceal it
Assassination, wars, depose governments to hide it from you

[Chorus]
No more fossil fuels to polute our world with Zero Point Energy
Atomic Power will be a thing from the past with Zero Point Energy
We would fly trough the skies powered by Zero Point Energy
A new age ahead exploring the space with Zero Point Energy


The Stranglers – North Winds Blowing lyrics

Lyrics

Comments Off on The Stranglers – North Winds Blowing lyrics


I saw an orange robe burning
I saw a youth on fire
I saw metal machines that were turning on
A generation that hadn’t yet tired

I heard of two generations that were
Being murdered
In a Europe that was shrouded in black
I witnessed the birth pains of new nations
When the chosen people finally went back

North Winds Blowing
I wish they’d blow you all away
North Winds Blowing
I wish they’d blow you all away

I saw a freedom in the shape of disease
And mainly men had to quench their desire
And while a few could do just as they please
I saw kid’s whose bellies were all on fire
And then all is dead and war is over
When hollow victory has been won
Who will join in the celebration of
An evil that can’t be undone

North Winds Blowing
I wish they’d blow you all away
North Winds Blowing
I wish they’d blow you all away

I use to dream about destruction
Now that I feel it getting near
I spend my time watching the ocean
And waves are all I want to hear

I wish I was a believer
I’d spend less time maybe
In being sad
So many laws against disbelieving
I don’t know who’s good or who’s bad

North Winds Blowing
Blow all away
Blow away
