Guns N’ Roses – Coma

You’ve caught me in a coma
And I don’t think I wanna
Ever come back to this
World again
Kinda like it in a coma
‘Cause no one’s ever gonna
Oh make me come back to this
World again
Now, I feel as if I’m floating away
I can’t feel all the pressure, and I like it this way
But my body’s calling
My body’s calling
Won’t you come back to this world again?
Suspended deep in a sea of black
I’ve got the light at the end, I’ve got the bones on the mast
Well, I’ve gone sailing
I’ve gone sailing
I could leave so easily
My friends are calling back to me, I said, they’re
They’re leavin’ it all up to me
When all I needed was clarity, and
Someone to tell me what the fuck is going on
Goddamn it
Slipping farther and farther away
It’s a miracle how long we can stay
In a world our minds created
In a world that’s full of shit
Okay, let’s get this guy in the program please, we’re losing him (start an IV Please)
Come on, his airways someone’s got to protect his airways I want two
Where’s the defibrillator?
Two IV’s over here please, that’s two more now, we’re losing him (let’s go) (help me)
Okay, respond, we’re losing this guy (help me)
Where’s the, where’s the crash- what’s going on? anyways, in protective two IV’s
(Bastard) slow motion here (let’s get him in ER)
Going out on us
Who’s got the defibrillator?
Please understand me
I’m climbing through the wreckage of all my twisted dreams
But this cheap investigation just can’t stifle all my screams
And I’m waiting at the crossroads, waiting for you
Waiting for you
Where are you?
No one’s going to bother me anymore
No one’s going to mess with my head no more
I can’t understand what all the fightin’s for
But it’s so nice here, down off the shore
I wish you could see this, ’cause there’s nothing to see
It’s peaceful here and it’s fine with me
Not like the world where I used to live
I never really wanted to live
Okay, we’re starting to lose this guy
I want that IV and his airway protected (let’s get some people in here)
Get the crash cart please, we’re losing this guy, he’s going under (give me an airway please)
Zap him again
How about an IV, stat?
Okay you better protect the airway, you’re starting to lose him (clear)
Zap the son of a bitch again
Listen to me
Axl, are you listening to me?
No, don’t walk away from me “Get back over here
(‘You are such a fucking prick, I am so pissed with you)
All I hear is bullshit, all the time
All you ever wanna do is have sex, sex sex
I just don’t give a shit anymore
You live your life like it’s a coma
Won’t you tell me why we’d wanna?
With all the reasons you give, it’s
It’s kinda hard to believe
But who am I to tell you that I’ve seen
Any reason why you should stay?
Maybe we’d be better off without you, anyway
You got a one way ticket, on your last chance ride
Got a one way ticket to your suicide
Got a one way ticket, and there’s no way out alive
An’ all this crass communication that has left you in the cold
Isn’t much for consolation when you feel so weak and old
But if home is where the heart is, then there’s stories to be told
No, you don’t need a doctor, no one else can heal your soul
Got your mind in submission, got your life on the line
But nobody pulled the trigger, they just stepped aside
They be down by the water
While you watch ’em waving goodbye
They be calling in the morning, they be hanging on the phone
They be waiting for an answer, but you know nobody’s home
When the bell’s stopped ringing
It was nobody’s fault, but your own
There were always ample warnings
There were always subtle signs
And you would have seen it coming
But we gave you too much time
And when you said that no one’s listening
Why’d your best friend drop a dime?
Sometimes, we get so tired of waiting for a way to spend our time
An’ it’s so easy to be social
It’s so easy to be cool
Yeah, it’s easy to be hungry, when you ain’t got shit to lose
And I wish that I could help you with what you hope to find
But I’m still out here, waiting
Watching reruns of my life
When you reach the point of breaking
Know it’s gonna take some time
To heal the broken memories
That another man would need just to survive


La primera máquina de karaoke la introdujo el cantante Daisuke Inoue, pero el éxito fue un poco por casualidad, ya que la gente asistente a sus conciertos insistía en poder cantar junto a él, gracias al experimento interactivo tan novedoso. Cuando el cantante vió el gran potencial del invento, lo patentó en un primer modelo consistente en una máquina a la que había que echar una moneda para que funcionase


En América y Europa se hicieron bastante conocidos este tipo de actividades, sobre todo en los bares, cuyo público era mayormente joven. Principalmente, el corazón del canto al vacío son las máquinas de karaoke, las que constan de una pantalla, mecanismo de supresión de voz, lector de DVD’s, además del sistema de sonido. Al principio, las máquinas tenían un lector de cintas, pero luego se cambió a las clásicas cintas de DVD’s. Se han llegado a abrir lugares especiales en los que sólo se puede hacer karaoke, además de comer y beber. Sin embargo, hay otros lugares que no están dedicados completamente a prestar el servicio del karaoke, pero establecen algunos días de la semana para ofrecerlo. Hoy en día, las máquinas son mucho más modernas, con pantallas de alta definición y de gran tamaño, al igual que un sonido potente. De igual forma, existen concursos a nivel mundial de esto e, incluso, han llegado a ser televisados.
