Thank God for Tatum's Advil
you dont know how bad I feel
like someone hit me with an anvil
and I'm regretting my last meal

I think I drank some SoCo
but I really just dont know
Cause I simply cant remember
last night's great big bender

Never Tear Us Apart
.... INXS

Dont ask me
what you know is true
dont have to tell you
I love your precious heart

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live
For a thousand years
But if I hurt you
I'd make wine from your tears

I told you
That we could fly
'Cause we all have wings
But some of us don't know why

I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart

A Sorta Fairytale Lyrics (Tori Amos)

on my way up north
up on the ventura
i pulled back the hood
and i was talking to you
and i knew then it would be
a life long thing
but i didn't know that we
we could break a silver lining

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

things you said that day
up on the 101
the girl had come undone
i tried to downplay it
with a bet about us
you said that-
you'd take it
as long as i could
i could not erase it

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

and i ride along side
and i rode along side
you then
and i rode along side
till you lost me there
in the open road
and i rode along side
till the honey spread
itself so thin
for me to break your bread
for me to take your word
i had to steal it

way up north i took my day
all in all was a pretty nice
day and i put the hood
right back where
you could taste heaven
perfectly
feel out the summer breeze
didn't know when we'd be back
and i, i don't
didn't think
we'd end up like
like this

and i'm so sad
like a good book
i can't put this
day back
a sorta fairytale
with you
a sorta fairytale
with you

i could pick back up
whenever i feel

um a little bit of both :D although here is one that didn't make me think of the weekend at all! I love this song and it was the first random song to meet me when I switched on winamp.



Madonna, live to tell

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall

A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, 'till then
It will burn inside of me

I know where beauty lives
I've seen it once, I know the warmth she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can't take that from me

A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, 'till then
It will burn inside of me

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

If I ran away, I'd never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear the beating of my heart
Will it grow cold
The secret that I hide, will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know

A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, 'till then
It will burn inside of me

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

"My Immortal"
Evanescence

i'm so tired of being here
suppressed by all of my childish fears
and if you have to leave
i wish that you would just leave
because your presence still lingers here
and it won't leave me alone

these wounds won't seem to heal
this pain is just too real
there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
and i've held your hand through all of these years
but you still have all of me

you used to captivate me
by your resonating light
but now i'm bound by the life you left behind
your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

these wounds won't seem to heal
this pain is just too real
there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears
when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears
and i've held your hand through all of these years
but you still have all of me

i've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
and though you're still with me
i've been alone all along

"My Immortal"
Evanescence
I could easily post all the lyrics from this album, and feel pretty much justified in doing so, but I'll try to refrain. Still, this is one of my current favorite songs of my current favorite album. I esp like, and can relate to, the first verse.

"Whisper"
EVANESCENCE

catch me as i fall
say you're here and it's all over now
speaking to the atmosphere
no one's here and i fall into myself
this truth drives me into madness
i know i can stop the pain if i will it all away

don't turn away
don't give in to the pain
don't try to hide
though they're screaming your name
don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
don't turn out the light
never sleep never die

i'm frightened by what i see
but somehow i know that there's much more to come
immobilized by my fear
and soon to be blinded by tears
i can stop the pain if i will it all away

don't turn away
don't give in to the pain
don't try to hide
though they're screaming your name
don't close your eyes
God knows what lies behind them
don't turn out the light
never sleep never die

fallen angels at my feet
whispered voices at my ear
death before my eyes
lying next to me i fear
she beckons me shall i give in
upon my end shall i begin
forsaking all i've fallen for i rise to meet the end

This is for all those Dave Matthews fans out there...and anyone else who will listen (or read). I love Dave's music, he and his band somehow manage to carry my feelings. No matter my mood, when I listen to DMB, and especially this song, I'm free to flow in emotion of the music...and that is an amazing thing.

Seek Up
Dave Matthews Band

Fall back again, fall back again,
Fall back again, fall back again

Oh, life it seems a struggle between
What we see and what we do
I'm not going to change my ways
Just to please you or appease you
well, look at this crowd, five billion proud
Willing to punch it out
Right, wrong, weak, strong
Ashes to ashes all fall down
oh, Look around about this round
About this merry-go-round and round
If at all God's gaze upon us falls
His mischievous grin, look at him

Forget about the reasons and
The treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that
Our emotions can be kept away
Forget about being guilty,
We are innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

oh look at me in my fancy car
and my bank account
oh, how i wish i could take it all down to my grave
god knows id save and save
man take a look again take a look again
things you have corrected
in the end they all pile up so tall to one big nothing,
one big nothing at all

Forget about the reasons and
The treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that our emotions can be
swept away, kept away
Forget about being guilty, i am innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion
And your cup is overflowing
You seek up an emotion,
Sometimes your well is dry
You're looking for a monster
For him to fight your wars for you
But when he finds his way to you, the devil's not
Going--ha, ha

say, oh say
late at night with TV's hungry child
his belly swells
well for the price of a coke or a smoke
i could Keep alive those hungy eyes
Take a look again,Take a look again
everyday things change,
but basically they stay the same

Forget about the reasons and
The treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that our emotions can be
swept away, kept away
Forget about being guilty, i am innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion
And your cup is overflowing
You seek up an emotion,
Sometimes your well is dry
You're looking for a monster
For him to fight your wars for you
But when he finds his way to you, the devil's not
Going--ha, ha

Some folk/blues from the great Ben Harper, whose music also carries me away.

Walk Away
--Ben Harper

oooo no
here comes that sun again
that means another day without you my friend
and it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself
and it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else
and its so hard to do
and so easy to say
but sometimes
sometimes
you just have to walk away
walk away

so many people to love in my life
why do i worry about one
but you put the happy in my laughs
you put the good times into my fun

and its so hard to do
and so easy to say
sometimes
sometimes
you just have to walk away
walk away
and head for the dorr

we've tried the goodbye
so many days
we walk in the same direction
so that we could never stray
they say if you love somebody
then you have got to set them free
but i would rather be locked to you than live in this pain and misery
they say that time will make all this go away
but its time that has taken my tomorrows and turned them into yesterday
and once again that rising sun is a droppin on down
and once again you my friend are no where to be found

and its so hard to do, and so easy to say
but sometimes
sometimes
you just have to walk away
walk away
and head for the door
you just walk away
walk away
walk away.....
just walk on
walk on
turn and head for the door....
walk away

:cry: :D :love: :dozey: :)

"Next 100 Years"
Bon Jove

Time ain't nothing but time
It's a verse with no rhyme
It all comes down to you

Change ain't nothing but change
Just the faces and the names
But you know we're gonna make it through

I'll believe
When you don't believe in anything

Chorus:
I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
I'll be standing here
For the next 100 years
If it all should end tonight
I'll know it was worth the fight
And we'll be standing here
For the next 100 years

I, when I think that I'm losing my mind
It all comes back to you

And you, you know that it's true
After all we've been through
There's nothing that I wouldn't do

Stand by me
And I would gladly give up everything

Chorus:
I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
I'll be standing here
For the next 100 years
If it all should end tonight
I'll know it was worth the fight
And we'll be standing here
For the next 100 years

I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
I'll be standing here
For the next 100 years
If it all should end tonight
I'll know it was worth the fight
And we'll be standing here
For the next 100 years

Love Supreme, Robbie WIlliams... I love the lyrics of this one, especially the first two verses!

Oh it seemed forever stopped today
All the lonely hearts in london
Caught a plane and flew away
And all the best woman are married
All the handsome men are gay
You feel deprived

Yeah are you questioning your size?
Is there a tumour in your humour,
Are there bags under your eyes?
Do you leave dents where you sit,
Are you getting on a bit?
Will you survive you must survive

When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

Oh what are you really looking for?
Another partner in your life to abuse and to adore?
Is it lovey dovey stuff
Do you need a bit of rough? get on your knees
Yeah turn down the love songs that you hear
Cause you can't avoid the sentiment
That echoes in your ear
Saying love will stop the pain
Saying love will kill the fear
Do you believe you must believe

I spy with my little eye
Something beginning with (ah) got my back up
And now she's screaming
So I've got to turn the track up
Sit back and watch the royalties stack up
I know this girl she likes to switch teams
And I'm a friend but I'm living for a love supreme


Come and live a love supreme
Don't let it get you down
Everybody lives for love

The Bangles--I'll Set You Free
(S. Hoffs/E. Lowen/D. Navarro)

I hear you through the wire
The words all sound like noise
What happened to the fire in your voice

Don't try to hide the distance
It's just too big to ignore
We work it out like business
It won't work anymore

I remember eyes that shine
As they looked so hard back into mine
Now it's just a memory
So I'll set you free
I'll set you free

Still sometimes late at night
Moonlight comes into my window
I make believe it's how it used to be

We made it look so easy
We never tried to resist
Somehow you stopped believing
Somehow we've come to this

I remember eyes that shined
As they looked so hard back into mine
Now it's just a memory
So I'll set you free

I remember words that fell
Like coins into a wishing well
It was never meant to be
So I'll set you free
I'll set you free

So now that I must go on
What more can I do
What good is being strong
When all I ever really want is you

one of my favourite songs by the Grateful Dead

Just A Little Light
Well, there ain't nobody safer than someone who doesn't care
And it isn't even lonely when no one's ever there
I had a lot of dreams once, but some of them came true...
The honey's sometimes bitter when fortune falls on you

So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night
And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright
But here you're trembling like a sparrow, I will try with all my might
To give you just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little light.


I have always heard that virtue oughta be its own reward,
But it never comes so easy when you're living by the sword
It's even harder to be heartless when you look at me that way
You're as mighty as the flower that will grow the stones away


Even though I been a stranger, full of irony and spite
Holding little but contempt for all things beautiful and bright,
Something shines around you and it seems, to my delight
To give me just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little light.


[Bridge:]
This could be just another highway, coiled up in the night
You could be just another white-tail, baby, stranded on my brights,
There's a tingling recognition
Like the sound of distant thunder
And I begin to wonder
If the love I've driven under
Won't ignite.


So you know I've been a soldier in the armies of the night
And I'll find the fatal error in what's otherwise alright
Something shines around you that seems, to my delight
To give me just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little sweetness...
Just a little light.

I needed something a little brighter...

Blue Skies
Irving Berlin


I was blue, just as blue as I could be
Ev'ry day was a cloudy day for me
Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
Skies were gray but they're not gray anymore

Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see

Bluebirds
Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on

[2]
I should care if the wind blows east or west
I should fret if the worst looks like the best
I should mind if they say it can't be true
I should smile, that's exactly what I do

a bit o' hip-hop for all the cool cats up in here

Femme Fatale
Digiable Planets

it was 8:49 on a beautiful 9th day of july
there was not a cloud to speak of so the orange sun hung
lonely in the sky
i was laying prone in my ?catbeat? home
listening to fine nappy jackie and his jazzcat's horn
sliding in a tape of bird on verve when suddenly rang my phone
hello butterfly a voice said
slip on some duds comb out your fro and slide on down to my pad
the vibe here is very pleasant and i truly request your presence
a problem of great magnitude has arose
and as we speak it grows
damn, what could it be i thought
a juice i bought and rolled on down to her spot
seeing bros i know slapping fives i arrived and pressed G-5
and there was nikki
lookin some kind of sad with tears fallin from her eyes
she sat me down
and dug my frown and began to run it down
"you remember my boyfriend sid that fly kid who i love
well our love was often a verb and spontaneity has brought a third
but do to our youth an economic state we wish to terminate
about this we don't feel great , but baby that's how it is
but the feds have dissed me
they ignore and dismiss
and the pro-lifers harrass me outside the clinic
and call me a murderer, now that's hate
so needless to say we're in a mental state of debate
hey beautiful bird i said digging her somber mood
the fascists are some heavy dudes
they don't really give a damn about life
they just don't want a woman to
control her body or have the right to choose
but baby that ain't nothin
they just want a male finger on the button
because if you say war they will send them to die by the score
aborting mission should be your volition
but if souter and thomas have their way
you'll be standing in line unable to get welfare while they're out
hunting and fishing
it has always been around it will always have a niche
but they'll make it a privelege not a right
accessible only to the rich
hey, pro-lifers need to dig themselves
cause life doesn't stop after birth
and to a child borne to the unprepared
it might even just get worse
supporters of the h-bomb and fire bombing clinics
what type of shit is that? orwellian in fact
if roe v wade was overturned would not the desire remain intact
leaving young girls to risk their healths
and doctors to botch and watch as they kill themselves
now, i hate to sound macabre
but hey, isn't it my job
to lay it on the masses and get them off their asses
to fight against these fascists
so whatever you decide make that move with pride
sid will be there
and so will i
an insect til i die
rhythms and sounds
spinning around
confrontations
across the nation
your block
my block
dreadlocks
what a shock
land of the free - but not me
...not me...not me...not meeeeeeee

Gollum's Song
performed by Emiliana Torrini

Where once was light
Now darkness falls
Where once was love
Love is no more
Don't say goodbye
Don't say I didn't try

These tears we cry
Are falling rain
For all the lies you told us
The hurt, the blame!
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost
We can never go home

So in the end
I'll be what I will be
No loyal friend
Was ever there for me

Now we say goodbye
We say you didn't try

These tears you cry
Have come too late
Take back the lies
The hurt, the blame!

And you will weep
When you face the end alone
You are lost
You can never go home
You are lost
You can never go home

Guns 'n' fucking roses
"Coma"


Hey you 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 callin'
My body's callin'
Won't ya 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 sailin',
I've gone sailin'
I could leave so easily
While friends are calling back to me
I said they're
They're leaving it all up to me
When all I needed was clarity
And someone to tell me
WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
GODDAMN IT!

Slippin' farther an 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

HELP ME
HELP ME
HELP ME
HELP ME
BASTARD

Please understand me
I'm climbin' through the wreackage
Of all my twisted dreams
But this cheap investigation just
Can't stifle all my screams
And I'm waitin' at the crossroads
Waiting for you
Waiting for you
WHERE ARE YOU

No one's gonna bother me anymore
No one's gonna 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

ZAP HIM AGAIN
ZAP THE SON OF A BITCH AGAIN

Ya live your life like it's a coma
So 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
Matbe we'd be better off
Without you anyway
You got a one way ticket
On your last chance ride
Gotta one way ticket
To your suicide
Gotta one way ticket
An 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 is 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 callin' in the morning
They be hangin' on the phone
They be waiting for an answer
When you know nobody's home
And 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 comin'
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

We sat around the table and we drank a bottle of wine
And it poured around us like a moat, till no one could get us, and I was fine
And I said: haven't I paid my dues by now,
haven't I paid my dues by now
Haven't I paid my dues by now,
and don't I get the right to choose
well I choose you to take up all of my time
I choose you because you're funny and kind
I want easy people from now on

Easy people
Easy people

My house is full of empty rooms and broken frames and other people's stuff
In my house we see by Christmas lights and your TV, and that seems to be enough
To see what we want to see
You let me be who I want to be
And we'll be easy from now on, from now on

easy people
easy people

Why can't I be easy, why can't I be easy like you?

Oh to you I would give the songs I write, the words I pray and the morning light
That comes into this room today, if you would only rise, if you would only say
I want you, you take up all of my time
I want you because you're funny and kind
And we'll be easy from now on, from now on

easy people
easy people

Paul Brandt - Take It From Me

If the river is high, I'll be your shore
If it's love you need, I'll give you more
You can count on me, baby, that's for sure
I belong to you

If you cross the line, I'll cross it too
Anywhere you go, I'll be with you
We'll cry some tears, but we'll make it through
As long as we're together

Everything in my heart I'll give you
Everything in my soul, it's yours
Everything that I am and ever will be
Take it from me, take it from me
Take everything

I'll give you all that you can take
I made a promise, it will never break
You've got my heart, make no mistake
Just take it from me

Everything in my heart I'll give you
Everything in my soul, it's yours
Everything that I am and ever will be
Take it from me, take it from me
Take everything

Everything in my heart I'll give you
Everything in my soul, it's yours
Everything that I am and ever will be
Take it from me, take it from me
Take everything

Everything in my heart I'll give you
Everything in my soul, it's yours
Everything that I am and ever will be
Take it from me, take it from me
Take everything

Won't you take it from me, just take it from me

Time for something I don't think anyone will like but me :D Or, at least, nobody else will admit to it. ;)

"IF THIS IS IT"
Huey Lewis & The News

I've been phoning night and morning
I heard you say "tell him I'm not home"
Now you're confessing, But I'm still guessing
I've been your fool for so so long
Girl don't lie, just to save my feelings
Girl don't cry, and tell me nothing's wrong
Girl don't try to make up phony reasons
I'd rather leave than never believe

If this is it, Please let me know
If this ain't love you'd better let me know
If this is it, I want to know
If this ain't love baby, just say so

You've been thinking
And I've been drinking
We both know that it's just not right
Now you're pretending
That it's not ending
You'll say anything to avoid a fight
Girl don't lie, and tell me that you need me
Girl don't cry, and tell me nothing's wrong
I'll be alright one way or another
So let me go, or make we want to stay

If this is it , Please let me know
If this ain't love you'd better let me know
If this is it, I want to know
If this ain't love baby, just say so

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today.
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin


It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

Pink Floyd - Brain Damage

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path
The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

"I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvellous! HaHaHa!"

I love this song sooo much :love:

Tool- Schism

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smoldering. Fundamental differing.
Pure intention juxtaposed will set two lovers souls in motion
Disintegrating as it goes testing our communication
The light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
We cannot see to reach an end crippling our communication.

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them tumble down
No fault, none to blame it doesn't mean I don't desire to
Point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over.
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication

The poetry that comes from the squaring off between,
And the circling is worth it.
Finding beauty in the dissonance.

There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away.
Mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting
I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing
Doomed to crumble unless we grow, and strengthen our communication.

Cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any
Sense of compassion
Between supposed lovers/brothers

Puttin' on the Ritz (The amusing Taco remake)
-Because I wish I looked like Gary Cooper

If youíre blue and you donít know
Where to go to why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coats, perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockafellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mitts
Puttin' on the ritz

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats, and narrow collars
White spats, and lots of dollars
Spendin' every dime
For a wonderful time

If youíre blue and you donít know
Where to go to why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the ritz
Different types who wear a daycoat
Pants with stripes and cutaway coats, perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
Come let's mix where Rockafellers
Walk with sticks or umbrellas in their mitts
Puttin' on the ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz

Move
I want you to move

Gotta Dance
Gotta Dance

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go to where fashion sits
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz
Puttin' on the ritz

You don't like the sound of the truth
Comin' from my mouth
You say that I lack the proof
Well baby that might be so
I might get to the end of my life
Find out everyone was lying
I don't think that I'm afraid anymore
Say that I would rather die trying

Wo-oh Swing me way down south
Sing me something brave from your mouth
And I'll bring you
Pearls of water on my hips
And the love in my lips
All the love from my lips

This time when he swung the bat
And I found myself laying flat I wondered
What a way to spend a dime
What a way to use the time
Ain't it baby
I looked at my reflection
In the window walking past
And I saw a stranger
I'm just so scared all the time
It makes me one more reason
Why the world's dangerous

Wo-oh Swing me way down south
Sing me something brave from your mouth
And I'll bring you
Pearls of water on my hips
And the love in my lips
All the love from my lips

You don't like the sound of the truth
Comin' from my mouth
You say that I lack the proof
Well baby that might be so
Tell me what's wrong with havin a little faith
In what you're feelin' in your heart
Why must we be so afraid
And always so far apart

Wo-oh Swing me way down south
Sing me something brave from your mouth
And I'll bring you
Pearls of water on my hips
And the love in my lips
All the love from my lips

Tool - H.

What's coming through is alive.
What's holding up is a mirror.
But what's singing songs is a snake
Looking to turn this piss to wine.

They're both totally void of hate,
But killing me just the same.

The snake behind me hisses
What my damage could have been.
My blood before me begs me
Open up my heart again.

And I feel this coming over like a storm again.
Considerately.

Venomous voice, tempts me,
Drains me, bleeds me,
Leaves me cracked and empty.
Drags me down like some sweet gravity.

The snake behind me hisses
What my damage could have been.
My blood before me begs me
Open up my heart again.

And I feel this coming over like a storm again.

I am too connected to you to
Slip away, to fade away.
Days away I still feel you
Touching me, changing me,
And considerately killing me.

Without the skin,
Beneath the storm,
Under these tears
The walls came down.

And the snake is drowned and
As I look in his eyes,
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of those times.

I could have cried then.
I should have cried then.

And as the walls come down and
As I look in your eyes
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of the times
I have died
and will die.
It's all right.
I don't mind.

I am too connected to you to
Slip away, to fade away.
Days away I still feel you
Touching me, changing me,

And considerately killing me.

Best lyrics ever!! (except for probably "Stairway to Heaven")

The Brave sir Robin song from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"


Minstrel's song #1

Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die, O brave Sir Robin.
He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways,
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!

He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp,
Or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows broken,
To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away
And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin!

His head smashed in and his heart cut out
And his liver removed and his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped and his bottom burned off
And his pen--


Minstrel's song #2

Brave Sir Robin ran away,
Bravely ran away, away.
When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly, he chickened out. Bravely taking to his feet,
He beat a very brave retreat,
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin.


Minstrel's song #3

He is packing it in and packing it up
And sneaking away and buggering up
And chickening out and pissing off home,
Yes, bravely he is throwing in the sponge.

There's so many people dying
You complain about your situation
What about me?
Half the world wouldn't know
What it's like to lose your seed
Maybe you can understand

(How I feel)
I cannot reach that soul
You're probably watching over us
Know that I think of you
It's killing me

The guilt has lasted years, still cry
It was all planned out
Why was I last to know?
Don't you trust in me?
The table's cold, it's too late
To make up for these mistakes
Maybe you can't understand

(How I feel)
I cannot reach that soul
You're probably watching over us
Know that I think of you
It's killing me
(How I feel)
If I would have known
I can't say what I would have done
If you could forgive
I'd like to rest with you someday

(How I feel)
I cannot reach that soul
You're probably watching over us
Know that I think of you
It's killing me
(How I feel)
If I would have known
I can't say what I would have done
If you could forgive
I'd like to rest with you someday

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone)
Every step I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone)

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I've becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I've becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I've becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Is everything what you want me to be
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Is everything what you want me to be

Overcome by your
Moving temple
Overcome by this
Holiest of altars

So pure
So rare
To witness such an earthly goddess
That I've lost my self control
Beyond compelled to throw this dollar down before your
Holiest of altars

I'd sell
My soul
My self-esteem a dollar at a time

One chance
One kiss
One taste of you my magdalena

I bear witness
To this place, this prayer, so long forgotten
So pure
So rare
To witness such an earthly goddess

That I'd sell
My soul
My self-esteem a dollar at a time
For one chance
One kiss
One taste of you my black madonna

I'd sell
My soul
My self-esteem a dollar at a time

One taste
One taste
One taste of you my Magdalena

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fuckin special

But, I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I'm doing here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I'm not around
You're so fuckin special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin here?
I don't belong here
Oh, oh

She's running out again
She's running out
She run, run, run, run
Run

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep

What the hell am I doin here?

You say I only hear what I want to.
You say I talk so all the time so.

And I thought what I felt was simple,
And I thought that I don't belong,
And now that I am leaving,
Now I know that I did something wrong 'cause I missed you.
Yeah, I missed you.

And you say I only hear what I want to:
I don't listen hard,
I don't pay attention to the distance that you're running
Or to anyone, anywhere,
I don't understand if you really care,
I'm only hearing negative: no, no, no.

So I turned the radio on, I turned the radio up,
And this woman was singing my song:
The lover's in love, and the other's run away,
Yhe lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay.

Some of us hover when we weep for the other who was
Dying since the day they were born.
Well, this is not that:
I think that I'm throwing, but I'm thrown.

And I thought I'd live forever, but now I'm not so sure.

You try to tell me that i'm clever,
But that won't take me anyhow, or anywhere with you.

You said that I was naive,
And I thought that I was strong.
I thought, "hey, I can leave, i can leave."
But now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you.

You said, "I caught you 'cause I want you and one day I'll let you go."
"You try to give away a keeper, or keep me 'cause you know you're just scared to lose."
And you say, "stay."

You say, I only hear what I want to.

Run and tell all of the angels
This could take all night
Think I need a devil to help me
Get things right

Hook me up a new revolution
Cos this one is a lie
We sat around laughing
And watch the last one die

Iím looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something help me burn out bright

Iím looking for complications
Looking cos Iím tired of lying
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly (high)

Think Iím done nursing the patience
I can wait one night
Iíd give it all away
If you give me one last try

We live happily ever trapped
If you just save my life
Run and tell the angels
That everything is all right

Iím looking for complications
Looking cos Iím tired of trying
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly (high)

Fly along with me
I canít quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own

Iím looking for complications
Looking cos Iím tired of lying
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly (high)

Theres nothing but the rain
No footsteps on the ground

Isn't anyone tryin to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home

Trying to figure out this life
Wont you take me by the hand

Tori Amos- Little Earthquakes

Yellow bird flying
Get shot in the wing
good year for hunter
And Christmas parties
And I hate and I hate
And I hate and I hate
Elevator music
The way we fight
The way I'm left here silent

Oh these little earthquakes
Here we go again
These little earthquakes
Doesn't take much to rip us into pieces

We danced in graveyards
With vampire till dawn
We laughed in the faces of kings Never afraid to burn
And I hate and I hate
And I hate and i hate
Disintegration
Watching us wither
Black winged roses that safely changed their color

Oh these little earthquakes
Here we go again
These little earthquakes
Doesn't take much to rip us into pieces

I can't reach you
I can't reach you
Give me life Give me pain
Give me myself again

Oh these little earthquakes
Here we go again
These little earthquakes
Doesn't take much to rip us into pieces

These tears I've cried
I've cried 1000 oceans
And if it seems
I'm floating in the darkness
Well, I can't believe that I would keep
Keep you from flying
And I would cry 1000 more
If that's what it takes
To sail you home
Sail you home
Sail you home

I'm aware what the rules are
But you know that I will run
You know that I will follow you
Over silbury hill
Through the solar field
You know that I will follow you

And if I find you
Will you still remember
Playing at trains
Or does this litte blue ball
Just fade away
Over silbury hill
Through the solar field
You know that I will follow you
I'm aware what the rules are
But you know that I will run
You know that I will follow you

These tears I've cried
I've cried 1000 oceans
And if it seems
I'm floating in the darkness
Well I can't believe that I would keep
Keep you from flying
So I will cry 1000 more
If that's what it takes
To sail you home
Sail you home
Sail you home
Sail
Sail you home

smacks you in the head
knifes you in the neck
kicks you in the teeth
steel toe caps
takes all your credit cards
step up get the gunge

dance you fucker dance you fucker
don't you dare

don't you flan in the face
take it with the love its given
take it with a pinch of salt
take it to the taxman
let me back let me back
i promise to be good
don't look in the mirror
at the face you don't recognize
help me call the doctor
put me inside

i keep the wolf from the door
but he calls me up
calls me on the phone
tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
steal all my children
if i don't pay the ransom
but i'll never see him again
if i squeal to the cops

walking like a giant crane and
with my x ray eyes i strip you naked
in a tight little world and are you on the list?
stepford wives who are we to complain?
investments and dealers investments and dealers
cold wives and mistresses.
cold wives and sunday papers.
city boys in 1st class
don't know we're born
just know someone else is gonna come and clean it up
born and raised for the job
oh I wish you'd get up
go over get up go over and turn this tape off.

I waited 'til I saw the sun
Don't know why I didn't come
I left you by the house of fun
Don't know why I didn't come
Don't know why I didn't come

When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand

My heart is drenched in wine
You'll be on my mind forever

Out across the endless sea
I would die in ectasy
But I'll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road alone

My heart is drenched in wine
You'll be on my mind forever

Something has to make you run
Don't know why I didn't come
I feel as empty as a drum
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

A hundred days had made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lights had made me colder
And I donít think I can look at this the same
But all the miles had separate
They disappeared now when Iím dreaming of your face

Iím here without you baby but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight itís only you and me

The miles just keep rolling as the people either way to say hello
I hear this life is overrated but I hope it gets better as we go

Iím here without you baby but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight itís only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
It gets hard but it wonít take away my love
And when the last one falls, when itís all said and done
it get hard but it wonít take away my love

Iím here without you baby but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight itís only you and me

A Perfect Circle - The Nurse Who Loved Me

Say hello to the rug's topography
it holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it
say hello to the shrinking in your head
you can't see it but you know its there so don't neglect it

I'm taking her home with me
all dressed in white
she's got everything I need
pharmacy keys
she's falling hard for me
I can see it in her eyes
she acts just like a nurse with all the other guys

Say hello to all the apples on the ground
they were once in your eyes but you sneezed them out while sleeping
say hello to everything you've left behind
it's even more a part of your life now that you can't touch it

I'm taking her home with me
all dressed in white
she's got everything I need
some pills and a little cup
she's falling hard for me
I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse with all the other guys

I can't get this song out of my head...so I thought I'd share...


Uncle Kracker- In a Little While

Here's to the good life, or so they say
All those party and games that all those people play
They tell me that this is the place to be
All those beautiful people and nothing to see

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here
Something is wrong here, I don't belong here
Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town
And I've lost what I found, you know I'll turn around

In a little while I'll be thinking about you
In a little while I'll still be here without you
You never gave me a reason to doubt you
In a little while I'll be thinking about you baby
I'll be thinkin about you baby

On the other side of a coin there's a face
There's a memory somewhere that I can't erase
And there's a place that I'll find someday
But sometimes I feel like it's slipping away

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here
Something is wrong here, I don't belong here
Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town
And I've lost what I found, you know I'll turn around

In a little while I'll be thinking about you
In a little while I'll still be here without you
You never gave me a reason to doubt you
In a little while I'll be thinking about you

Somethings are lost some, left behind
Somethings are better left for someone else to find
Maybe in time I could finally see
I just wonder, wonder, if you think about me

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here
Something is wrong here, I don't belong here
Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town
And I've lost what I found, you know I'll turn around

In a little while I'll be thinking about you
In a little while I'll still be here without you
You never gave me a reason to doubt you
In a little while I'll be thinking about you baby
I'll be thinking about you baby.

I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe I've been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you'd let me know
What's real and going on below
But now you never show it to me do you?
Remember when I moved in you?
The holy dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
And all I ever learned from love
was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
Its not a cry you can hear at night
Its not somebody who's seen the light
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Tilling my own grave to keep me level
Jam another dragon down the hole
Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren
One that pushes me along and leaves me so

Desperate and Ravenous
I'm so weak and powerless over you

Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of China
White as Dracula as I approach the bottom

Desperate and Ravenous
I'm so weak and powerless over you

Little angel, go away
Come again some other day
The devil has my ear today
I'll never hear a word you say
Promised I would find a little solace
And some piece of mind
Whatever, just as long as I don't feel so

Desperate and Ravenous
I'm so weak and powerless over you
Desperate and Ravenous
I'm so weak and powerless
over you

Tool - Jimmy

What was it like to see
The face of your own stability
Suddenly look away
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?

Eleven and she was gone.
Eleven is when we waved good-bye.
Eleven is standing still,
Waiting for me to free him
By coming home.

Moving me with a sound.
Opening me within a gesture.
Drawing me down and in,
Showing me where it all began,
Eleven.

It took so long to realize that
You hold the light that's been leading me back home.

Under a dead ohio sky,
Eleven has been and will be waiting,
Defending his light,
And wondering...
Where the hell have I been?
Sleeping, lost, and numb.
So glad that I have found you.
I am wide awake and heading home.

Hold your light,
Eleven.
Lead me through each gentle step by step
by inch by loaded memory.

I'll move to heal
As soon as pain allows so we can
Reunite and both move on together.

Hold your light,
Eleven. Lead me through each gentle step by step
By inch by loaded memory
'till one and one are one, eleven,
So glow, child, glow.

I'm heading back home.

Tool - The Patient

A groan of tedium escapes me,
Startling the fearful.
Is this a test? It has to be,
Otherwise I can't go on.
Draining patience, drain vitality.
This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old.

But I'm still right here
Giving blood, keeping faith
And I'm still right here.

Wait it out,
Gonna wait it out,
Be patient (wait it out).

If there were no rewards to reap,
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here,
I certainly would've walked away by now.
Gonna wait it out.

If there were no desire to heal
The damaged and broken met along
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would've walked away by now.

And I still may ... (sigh) ... I still may.

Be patient.
I must keep reminding myself of this.

And if there were no rewards to reap,
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here,
I certainly would've walked away by now.
And I still may.

Gonna wait it out.

Tool - Undertow

gone under two times.
I've been struck dumb by a voice that
speaks from deep
beneath the cold black water.
It's twice as clear as heaven,
and twice as loud as reason.
It's deep and rich like silt on a riverbed
and just as undisturbing.
the currents mouth below me opens up around me.
suggests and beckons all while swallowing.
It surrounds and drowns and sweeps me away.

But I'm so comfortable...Too comfortable.

shut up shut up shut up shut up
shut up shut up shut up shut up
you're saturating me
So how could I let this bring me
back to my knees again again again

under for the third time.
I've been baptized by your voice.
it screams from deep beneath the endless water.
and it's half as high as heaven
and half as clear as reason.
it's cold and and black like silt on the riverbed.
But I'm so comfortable.
Far too comfortable.
Why don't you kill me,
I'm weak and numb and insignificant,
and I'm back on my knees.
lost in euphoria.
I'm back down. I'm in the undertow.
I'm helpless and awake in the undertow.
I'll die within your undertow.
It seems there's no other way out of this undertow.

Euphoria.

gary jules - mad world (i can't remember if he's the original composer or not but either way this is one of the most beautiful songs you will ever hear)

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, Worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going nowhere, Going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, No expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrows
No tomorrow, No tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
These dreams in which i'm dying, Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad World, Mad World

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And they feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me whats my lesson
Look right through me, Look right through me

And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which i'm dying, Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
Mad World, Mad World

Enlargen your world

Mad World

Tired of injustice
Tired of the schemes
The lies are disgusting
So what does it mean
Kicking me down
I got to get up
As jacked as it sounds
The whole system sucks

Peek in the shadow
Come into the light
You tell me I'm wrong
Then you better prove you're right
You're sellin' out souls but
I care about mine
I've got to get stronger
And I won't give up the fight

With such confusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize

Somebody please have mercy
'Cause I just can't take it
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make you just wanna scream

Tired of you tellin' the story your way
It's causin' confusion
You think it's okay

You Keep changin' the rules
While I keep playin' the game
I can't take it much longer
I think I might go insane

With such confusion don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
You find your pleasure scandalizin' every lie

Oh father, please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop f*ckin' with me
Make me wanna scream

With such collusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize

Oh brother please have mercy 'Cause I just can't take it
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream....

It always turns out to be a different way,

Not today, today, today, today, today...

It's always been up to you,
It's turning around,
It's up to me,
I'm gonna do what I have to do,
just don't

Gimme a little time,
Leave me alone a little while,
Maybe it's not too late,
not today, today, today, today, today...

[Chorus:]

I don't know how I'll feel,
tomorrow, tomorrow,
I don't know what to say,

Hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah, and I know I'm not ready,
Hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah, maybe tomorrow

Brainstorm, take me away from the norm
I got to tell you something
This phenomenon, I had to put it in a song
And it goes like

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally

You ought to know what brings me here
You glide through my head blind to fear
And I know why

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally
Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally

You live too far away
Your voice rings like a bell anyway
Don't give up your independence
Unless it feels so right
Nothing good comes easily
Sometimes you gotta fight

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally

Launched a thousand ships in my heart
So easy, still it's fine from afar
And you know that
Whoa, brainstorm take me away from the norm
Whoa, I got to tell you something

Two jumps in a week
I bet you think that's pretty clever don't you boy?
Flying on your motorcycle,
Watching all the ground beneath you drop
You'd kill yourself for recognition,
Kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror,
You're turning into something you are not

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

Drying up in conversation,
You will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces,
You just sit there wishing you could still make love
They're the ones who'll hate you
When you think you've got the world all sussed out
They're the ones who'll spit at you,
You will be the one screaming out

Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry
Don't leave me high, don't leave me dry

It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing that you ever, ever had
It's the best thing that you ever had,
The best thing you ever had has gone away

They made up their minds
And they started packing
They left before the sun came up that day
An exit to eternal summer slacking
But where were they going without ever
Knowing the way?

They drank up the wine
And they got to talking
They now had more important things to say
And when the car broke down they started walking
Where were they going without ever
Knowing the way?

Anyone can see the road that they walk on
Is paved in gold
And it's always summer
They'll never get cold
They'll never get hungry
They'll never get old and grey
You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere
They won't make it home
But they really don't care
They wanted the highway
They're happier there today, today

Their children woke up
And they couldn't find them
They left before the sun came up that day
They just drove off and left it all behind 'em
But where were they going without ever
Knowing the way?

Anyone can see the road that they walk on
Is paved in gold
And it's always summer
They'll never get cold
They'll never get hungry
They'll never get old and grey
You can see their shadows wandering off somewhere
They won't make it home
But they really don't care
They wanted the highway
They're happier there today, today

Shed a tear cause I'm missing you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think bout you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt you're in my heart now

Say woman take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Say sugar make it slow and we'll come together fine
All we need is just a little patience

I sit here on the stairs cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now I'll wait dear
Sometimes I get so tense but I can't speed up the time
But you know love there's one more thing to consider

Say woman take it slow and things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Say sugar take the time cause the lights are shining bright
You and I've got what it takes to make it
We won't fake it, oh I'll never break it
If I can't take it

Little patience, mmm yeah, mm yeah
Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah
Some more patience, yeah
Could use some patience, yeah
Gotta have some patience, yeah
All it takes is patience
Just a little patience
Is all you need

JUST TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT
ITS HARD TO SEE WITH SO MANY AROUND
YOU KNOW I DON'T LIKE BEING STUCK IN THE CROWD

Tool- Flood

Here comes the water.

All I knew and all I believed
are crumbling images
that no longer comfort me.
I scramble to reach higher ground,
some order and sanity,
or something to comfort me.

So I take what is mine,and hold what is mine,
suffocate what is mine, and bury what's mine.
Soon the water will come
and claim what is mine.
I must leave it behind,
and climb to a new place now.

This ground is not the rock I thought it to be.

Thought I was high, and free.
I thought I was there
divine destiny.

I was wrong.
This changes everything.

The water is rising up on me.
Thought the sun would come deliver me,
but the truth has come to punish me instead.

The ground is breaking down right under me.
Cleanse and purge me
in the water.

It is a gift I know
A moment of bliss that we hold
A firecracker flash of light then on
To the next plane soul remain
Come along if you dare
It's gonna be that you're scared
Lovely life I thank you
For the reason to see the pain through

Light a candle for the dead
The wick is burning returning what we have
It's who we are
We'll reach you if you're beyond the furthest star

Don't give up the fight to stay alive and even if
you have to
Find the reason of another's pain if they lose you
If not for your self then those around who care
like I do
One day you'll see the clear blue

Beyond the Gray Sky
Light a candle...
The wick...
It's who we are...

One day youill see the clear blue
Beyond the Gray Sky

I can't believe you didnit call
What made you want to end it all
Wasn't there something I should have tried
To help you see beyond the gray sky

Until I Fall Away

I want to tell if I am or am not myself
It's hard to know
how far or if at all could go
I've waited far too long
For something I forgot was wrong
I don't know all the answers
I think that I'll find
Or have it within the time
But it's all that I'll have in mind
Until I fall away
I won't keep you waiting long
Until I fall away
I don't know what to do anymore
Until I fall away
My fear pretend that I'll never be in love again
It's real to me but not like these fools
And not like this scene
I won't find or have it within the time
If it's all rusted and fade
In the spot where we fell
Where I thought I'd left behind
It's loose now but we could try
Until I fall away
I won't keep you waiting long
Until I fall away
I don't know what to do anymore
Until I fall away...
When there's no good answers
And no new questions
Another personal disaster
There's nowhere to go but down...

"Losing Grip"

Are you aware of what you make me feel, baby
Right now I feel invisible to you, like I'm not real
Didn't you feel me lock my arms around you
Why'd you turn away?
Here's what I have to say I was left to cry there,
waiting outside there grinning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

[chorus]
Why should I care
Cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone
You, you need to listen I'm starting to trip,
I'm losing my grip and I'm in this thing alone

Am I just some chick you place beside you to take somebody's place
when you turn around can you recognize my face you used to love me,
you used to hug me
But that wasn't the case
Everything wasn't ok I was left to cry there
waiting outside there grinning with a lost stare
That's when I decided

[chorus]

Crying out loud I'm crying out loud
Crying out loud I'm crying out loud

Open your eyes
Open up wide
Why should I care
Cuz you weren't there
when I was scared I was so alone Why should I care
Cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone
Why should I care
If you don't care then I don't care were not going anywhere
Why should I care cuz you weren't there when I was scared I was so alone
Why should I care If you don't care then i don't care were not going anywhere

Its raining...and its november...really :)

==============================
Guns N Roses - November Rain
==============================
When I look into your eyes - I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you - Don't you know I feel the same
Cause nothin' lasts forever - And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle - In the cold November rain

We've been through this such a long long time
Just tryin' to kill the pain - oh yeah
But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
Walking away

If we could take the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head just knowin' that you were mine
All mine

So if you want to love me - Then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin' - In the cold November rain

Do you need some time... on your own
Do you need some time... all alone
Everybody needs some time... on their own
Don't you know you need some time... all alone

I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time... on my own
Sometimes I need some time... all alone
Everybody needs some time... on their own
Don't you know you need some time... all alone

And when your fears subside - And shadows still remain
I know that you can love me - When there's no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness - We still can find a way
Cause nothin' lasts forever - Even cold November rain

Don't ya think that you need somebody
Don't ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Through bad dreams,

I'll be, Baby, baby telling you
You're never nothing less than beautiful.

So don't you worry,

There's a Red House over yonder
That's where my baby stays
There's a Red House over yonder, baby
That's where my baby stays

Well, I ain't been home to see my baby,
in ninety nine and one half days.
'Bout time I see her,
Wait a minute something's wrong here
The key won't unlock the door.

Wait a minute something's wrong baby,
Lord, have mercy, this key won't unlock this door,
something's goin' on here.
I have a bad bad feeling
that my baby don't live here no more.

That's all right, I still got my guitar
Look out now . . .

I might as well go on back down
go back 'cross yonder over the hill
I might as well go back over yonder
way back over yonder 'cross the hill,
(That's where I came from.)

'Cause if my baby don't love me no more,
I know her sister will!

System of A Down - Aerials

Life is a waterfall,
We're one in the river,
And one again after the fall.
Swimming through the void
We hear the word,
We lose ourselves,
But we find it all?

Cause we are the ones that want to play,
Always want to go,
But you never want to stay,
And we are the ones that want to chose,
Always want to play,
But you never want to lose.

Aerials, in the sky,
When you lose small mind,
You free your life.

Life is a waterfall,
We drink from the river,
Then we turn around and put up our walls.
Swimming through the void
We hear the word,
We lose ourselves,
But we find it all?

Cause we are the ones that want to play,
Always want to go,
But you never want to stay,
And we are the ones that want to chose,
Always want to play,
But you never want to lose.

Aerials, in the sky,
When you lose small mind,
You free your life.
Aerials, so up high,
When you free your eyes,
Eternal prize.

not long ago there was a time

it canceled everything

i said hey! i don't know what i'm doing
should i plan on my class reunion?
i've been working on a vision of clarity
this is how it boils down to me

anything is possible
anything and everything

when i was nineteen i thought i'd seen
everything i was gonna see
then I'd see a bit more
then I'd see a bit more
it canceled everything i'd seen before
i said hey! i thought i knew it all
i was setting up for one hell of a fall
writing down my philosophy songs
there one that still holds strong

with everyday that goes by
the less and less i wonder why
because i've seen them rise
and i've seen them fall
but i'll never claim to have seen them all
i said hey! i aint seen a thing
you never know what tomorrow will bring
i've been working on a state of mind
brace yourself for the ride

"Great American Sharpshooter"

So you think of what it could've been
When "time is all you've lost"
Keeps burning through your head and
Now you fall asleep standing but lie
Awake in bed watch the clock drag on
And think about what you should've said


It's for the better
Your better half is gone.
It's OK - You didn't need her anyway.
And I don't want to hear you say
Nobody can take her place
And what more can I say-
You didn't need her anyways.


So you think of how it should've been
And "It's just over"
Keeps going through your head.
You're hearing all those words time & time again
Watch the phone all night
And think about what you should've said


It's for the better your better half is gone.

Might as well start trying to get into the spirit.

Hark! How the bells, sweet silver bells
All seem to say, "Throw cares away."
Christmas is here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold
Ding, dong, ding, dong, that is their song,
With joyful ring, all caroling
One seems to hear words of good cheer
From everywhere, filling the air
O, how they pound, raising the sound
O'er hill and dale, telling their tale

Gaily they ring, while people sing
Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas!

On, on they send, on without end
Their joyful tone to every home
Hark! How the bells, sweet silver bells
All seem to say, "Throw cares away."
Christmas is here, bringing good cheer
To young and old, meek and the bold
Ding, dong, ding, dong, that is their song
With joyful ring, all caroling.
One seems to hear words of good cheer
From everywhere, filling the air
O, how they pound, raising the sound
O'er hill and dale, telling their tale

Gaily they ring, while people sing
Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas!

On, on they send, on without end

For jabb.

Fall, fall on your knees
Oh hear the Angel voices
O night divine
O night, when Christ was born
O night divine, O night, O night divine.

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth.
Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall, fall on your knees
Oh hear the Angel voices
O night divine
O night, when Christ was born
O night divine, O night, O night divine.
O holy night.

(I don't know if that's completely accurate, but that's how I remember singing it :) )

The Mars Volta -Take The Veil Cerpin Taxt

You must have been phlegmatic in stature
The gates of thanos are a spread eagle wide
You let the shutters make sackcloth and ashes
Out of a blind mans picaresque heart

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

It's not over till the tremulant sings
These ides of march
Are they so make believe
How tempts the revenant
Slice up and not across

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim-someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary spilling by the day

The iconoclastic had it coming for years
They know the prisons that you have yet to fear
Where thumbs hide inside of sleepingbag mouths
Adlib your memoires by casting a drought

You take the veil
You'll take the dive
You take the veil

A mass of gallon sloth
As flys have walls for feet
A rapturous verbatim-someone said but who is to know
And when you find the fringe
The one last hit that spent you
You'll find the ossuary spilling by the day

Knife me in -hobbeling
Talking in it's sleep again
Knife me in-hobbeling
Talking in it's sleep again

The one last hit that spent you
And you will find
The greatest fucking lie
Of aneurysm vespers
The ones that pile
Up the greatest fucking lies

Knife me in hobbling
Talking in it's sleep again
Knife me in hobbling
Talking in It's sleep again

Virulent hives- of bedpost piles
Virulent hives

Who brought me here
Forsaken,depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here
Forsaken,depraved and wrought with fear
Who turned it off
The last thing I remember now
Who brought me here

God rest you merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
Remember Christ our Saviour
Was born on Christmas Day;
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray.

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

In Bethlehem, in Jewry,
This blessed Babe was born,
And laid within a manger,
Upon this blessed morn;
To which His mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn.

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

From God our Heavenly Father,
A blessed angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

"Fear not," then said the angel,
"Let nothing you afright,
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure Virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in him
From Satan's power and might."

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding,
In tempest, storm and wind:
And went to Bethlehem straightway
The Son of God to find.

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray:

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface:

O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

This is where my current sig is from, if you're curious...

"My Immortal" - Evanescence
I'm so tired of being here,
suppressed by all my childish fears.
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave,
'cause your presence still lingers here
and it won't leave me alone.

These wounds won't seem to heal.
This pain is just too real.
There's just too much that time cannot erase.

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears,
when you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears,
and I've held your hand through all of these years,
but you still have all of me.

You used to captivate me
by your resonating light.
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind.
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams.
Your voice, it chased away all the sanity in me.

These wounds won't seem to heal.
This pain is just too real.
There's just too much that time cannot erase.

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears,
when you'd scream, i'd fight away all of your fears,
and i've held your hand through all of these years,
but you still have all of me.

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone.
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along.

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears,
when you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears,
and i've held your hand through all of these years,
but you still have all of me.

Hello, darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision
That was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
Beneath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed
By the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share...
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

"Fools," said I, "you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows."
"Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs said: "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls,
And whisper'd in the sound of silence."

All around me are familiar faces
worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
going nowhere, going nowhere
the tears are filling up their glasses
no expression, no expression
Hide my head i wanna dron my sorrow
no tomorrow, no tomorrow

And i find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which i'm dying
Are the best i've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, Happy birthday
Wanna feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and i was very nervous
No-one knew me no-one knew me
Hello teacher tell me whats my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And i find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very very mad world, mad world

Enlargen your world
Mad world

"My Immortal" - Evanescence

Hm. And I was sure it was from this one...

Natalie Imbruglia - Torn


I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm he came around and he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry

Well you couldnít be that man I adored
You donít seem to know, seem to care what your heart is for
Well I donít know him anymore

Thereís nothing where he used to lie
The conversation has run dry
Thatís whatís goiní on

Nothingís fine Iím torn
Iím all out of faith
This is how I feel
Iím cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
Iím wide awake and I can see
The perfect sky is torn
Youíre a little late
Iím already torn

So I guess the fortune tellerís right
I should have seen just what was there and not some holy light
But you crawled beneath my veins and now
I donít careóI have no luckóI donít miss it all that much
Thereís just so many things

That I canít touch Iím torn
Iím all out of faith
This is how I feel
Iím cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
Iím wide awake and I can see
The perfect sky is torn
Youíre a little late
Iím already torn

Torn

Oooooh, oooooh oooooh, ooooh

Thereís nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
Thatís whatís goiní on

Nothingís right Iím torn
Iím all out of faith
This is how I feel
Iím cold and I am shamed
Lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed
Into something real
Iím wide awake and I can see
The perfect sky is torn
Iím all out of faith
This is how I feel
Iím cold and Iím ashamed
Bound and broken on the floor
Youíre a little late Iím already torn

One of my favourite songs from one of my favourite bands

All My Best Friends Are Metalheads
Do you think it's strange
that there's this way of how you look at,
how you act like, and how you think and pretend they're not the same as you
Do you know about his strength of convictions
or how she puts all her faith in religion
Did you ever take the time
to really discover how little we know about each other?
this all becomes one more chance to
keep us from saying anything
and separate from everything.
And all this really means
you're one in a crowd and paranoid of every sound
another friend you won't miss anyhow

"Big Crash"

Sometimes, I think
something's wrong with me
because I was never one to believe
in anyone or anything
it's always been just me.
and y'know they've always had big plans for you
just to walk you through and cloud your views
and I'll never say that everything's O.K.
and you don't want to say that you're giving up right now
so hold your ground
don't give up in what you believe
why be different
when you can't be yourself
sometimes I think
something's wrong with me
because I was never one to believe
in anyone or anything.
and I don't want to say I'll ever change
because things always change.

Sage Francis - Every Midnight

Every midnight we sit at the coffee table and we share a cup of tea
He stays up with me and we discuss things
Most of the time he just listens
Other times offers suggestions or he just ignores my questions
It gets more depressing as time passes, because every night
I ask this one question and all he does is wipe his glasses
It's aggrevating as hell and I'm just waiting to tell
whether or not he can even remember the answer..
Or whether or not he's choosing not to tamper with his memory..
Or whether or not he can even fucking remember me.
What a waste of time
But every night it's that same damn routine:
One green cup of tea and me stuck all by myself once its empty
Then I'm off to bed with plenty of caffiene to keep me up and thinking
The cup I'm drinking from is never clean
I can't remember if it's a dream once I awake and I walk..
From my messy bed and anticipate the next late night talk

Every midnight we sit at the coffee table and we share a cup of tea

He stays up with me and we discuss things
Most of the time he just listens
Other times offers suggestions with his awful expressions
Altered refelctions...his whole aura is see-through
With more confessions...I don't want to leave you
'This cup should be bottomless!'...as my insecurities spill
I see his face fading away. I surely need a refill
I purposely keep still and don't move much
Except to wet my lips with sips. With every kiss of death I lose touch
I sip the tea carefully because its at the degree of seperation
Tasting the forked tongue in bi-lingual conversation
Waiting for his answer still...and at any given chance I will
Sweet and Low my bitter past...let the cancer kill the small talk
'Alright, man...this bitter taste in my mouth needs to get washed out
Ghosts in this house don't have anything timely to talk about.'
The concept is dead. There's nothing death should interrupt
I went to bed last night with one sip left in the cup

I might disintegrate into the thin air if you'd like
I'm not the dark center of the universe like you thought
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm real damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
Well, died sayin' something, but didn't mean it
Everyone's life ends, but no one ever completes it
Dry or wet ice, they both melt and you're equally cheated
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm really damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
Well, an endless ocean landin' on an endless desert
Well, its funny as hell, but no one laughs when they get there
If you can't see the thin air then why the hell should you care?
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm really damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
Well, I'm sure you'd tell me you got nothing to say
But our voices shook hands the other day
If you can't see the thin air what the hell is in the way?
Well, God sayin' somethin', but he didn't mean it
Everyone's life ends, but no one ever completes it
Dry or wet ice, they both melt and you're equally cheated
Well, it took a lot of work to be the ass that I am
And I'm really damn sure that anyone can, equally easily fuck you over
I'm sure you'll tell me you got nothin' to say
But our voices shook hands the other day
If you can't see the thin air then what the hells in your way?

When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow
In the window thereís a face you know
Donít the nights pass slow
Donít the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But Iím just about a moonlight mile on down the road

Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
Gonna warm my bones
Gonna warm my bones
I got silence on my radio
Let the air waves flow
Let the air waves flow

Oh Iím sleeping under strange strange skies
Just another mad mad day on the road
My dreams is fading down the railway line
Iím just about a moonlight mile down the road

Iím hiding sister and Iím dreaming
Iím riding down your moonlight mile
Iím hiding baby and Iím dreaming
Iím riding down your moonlight mile
Iím riding down you moonlight mile

Let it go now, come on up babe

Dreaming of that face again.
It's bright and blue and shimmering.
Grinning wide
And comforting me with it's three warm and wild eyes.

On my back and tumbling
Down that hole and back again
Rising up
And wiping the webs and the dew from my withered eye.

A child's rhyme stuck in my head.
It said that life is but a dream.
I've spent so many years in question
to find I've known this all along.

"So good to see you.
I've missed you so much.
So glad it's over.
I've missed you so much
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running?"

Shroud-ing all the ground around me
Is this holy crow above me.
Black as holes within a memory
And blue as our new second sun.
I stick my hand into his shadow
To pull the pieces from the sand.
Which I attempt to reassemble
To see just who I might have been.
I do not recognize the vessel,
But the eyes seem so familiar.
Like phosphorescent desert buttons
Singing one familiar song...

"So good to see you.
I've missed you so much.
So glad it's over.
I've missed you so much.
Came out to watch you play.
Why are you running away?"

Prying open my third eye.
So good to see you once again.
I thought that you were hiding.
And you thought that I had run away.
Chasing the tail of dogma.
I opened my eye and there we were.

So good to see you once again
I thought that you were hiding from me.
And you thought that I had run away.
Chasing a trail of smoke and reason.

Prying open my third eye.

Bright Eyes - Something Vague

Now and again it seems worse than it is,
but mostly the view is accurate.
You see your breath in the air while you climb up the stairs,
to that coffin you call your apartment.
And you sink in your chair, brush the snow from your hair.
and drink the cold away.
You are not really sure what you are doing this for,
but you need something to fill up the days.
A few more hours.
There is a dream in my brain that just won't go away.
It has been stuck there since it came a few nights ago,
I'm standing on a bridge in the town where I lived
as a kid with my mom and my brothers.
And then the bridge disappears and I'm standing on air
with nothing holding me.
And I hang like a star, fucking glow in the dark,
for all those starving eyes to see, like the ones we've wished on.
But now I'm confused. Is this death really you?
Do these dreams have any meaning?
No. No, I think it is more like a ghost that has been following us both.
Something vague that we are not seeing, something more like a feeling.

Well, I left for work in a hurry.
I rushed out the door without saying goodbye.
I didn't tell her I loved her this morning,
But I'll tell her tonight, I thought to myself.

And as I hurried off towards the highway,
This truck, out of nowhere, caught me by surprise.
He missed me by inches, and my life passed in front of my eyes.
I guess that's the reason that they say:

Dance every dance and live each day,
As though it's your last,
And tell those that you love how you feel,
Before it's too late.
Life is right here and now,
We only go around just one time.
So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.

Well as soon as my legs stopped shaking,
Took a deep breathe and turned my car around.
Oh, I'm gonna take that vacation,
That we talked about, starting right now.

Although I know tomorrow will be here,
Tomorrow may not always be here for me.
'Cause nothing in life is for certain but death's guaranteed.
And that's the reason that I say:

Dance every dance and live each day,
As though it's your last,
And tell those that you love how you feel,
Before it's too late.
Life is right here and now,
We only go around just one time.
So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.

Yeah, life is right here and now,
We only go around just one time.
So embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.
Oh, embrace 'em, don't waste 'em,
For these are the days of our lives.
Yeah.

Bring me home to this house of many days
Just lay me on the floor hard and cool as slate
You know I love it more and more than before I ran away
It triggers off so many hurts hurtful words and broken plates

I lied to
Now Iím fuzzy
Iíve been lied to

All and all the world is small enough for both of us
To meet upon the interstate waiting on a train
And just when those big arms lift up fall in love with no time to say it

I liked to
Now Iím fuzzy
Iíve lied to
Now Iím fuzzy
Fuzzy now

Oh oh oh

Here we are in our car driving down the street
Weíre looking for a place to stop have a bite to eat
We hunger for a bit of faith to replace the fear
We water like a dead bouquet does no good does it dear

Yesterday I got so old
I felt like I could die
Yesterday I got so old
It made me want to cry
Go on go on
Just walk away
Go on go on
Your choice is made
Go on go on
And disappear
Go on go on
Away from here

And I know I was wrong
When I said it was true
That it couldn't be me and be her
Inbetween without you
Without you

Yesterday I got so scared
I shivered like a child
Yesterday away from you
It froze me deep inside
Come back come back
Don't walk away
Come back come back
Come back today
Come back come back
Why can't you see?
Come back come back
Come back to me

And I know I was wrong
When I said it was true
That it couldn't be me and be her

Flogging Molly - Far Away Boys

Well I worked on the railroad
For t'pence a day
Drank down one penny
The other I'd save
I hammered and I hammered
For God knows how long
Well into madness, with each setting sun
I put my head down and I dreamt you were here
With me by the ol' tree, where no one could care

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

Then the sun belched upon me
You were no longer here
Lyin' in your place was my hammer and my gear
So I stamped out the fire that kept us both warm
The ashes were fallin'
Like the snow drops of old
We came to a mountain
Dynamite and she'll blow
A big hole in that rock
Like the one in my soul

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

We buried four workmen
They dug themselves well
From four empty coffins, to four early graves
They're only paddys, just paddys
Don't dig them too deep
You'll need all your strength boys
And they're replaced easily
With the heat I was melting
Into your sweet lips
Ah, your kiss takes me back
Takes me back from all this

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

Someone said it was Christmas
But not a tree was in sight
The only thing growin' was my will to die
Till the gaffer said 'men, your work here is done'
I said 'I'll see you in Hell, on that train we died for'
Never again, will I smell your sweet dream
But a pissed stained ol' gutter where:
You lips used to be

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

Step out the front door like a ghost
into the fog where no one notices
the contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you
the angels get a better view
of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.
I walk in the air between the rain
through myself and back again
Where? I don't know
Maria says she's dying
through the door I hear her crying
Why? I don't know

[Chorus]
Round here we always stand up straight
Round here something radiates

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
she said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
she parks her car outside of my house
takes her clothes off
says she's close to understanding Jesus
she knows she's more than just a little misunderstood
she has trouble acting normal when she's nervous

[Chorus:]
Round here we're carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here she's slipping through my hands

Sleeping children better run like the wind
out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
out of the lightning

She says It's only in my head
She says Shhh I know it's only in my head
But the girl in car in the parking lot
says "Man you should try to take a shot
can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building
and says she's thinking of jumping
She says she's tired of life
she must be tired of something

Round here she's always on my mind
Round here hey man got lots of time
Round here we're never sent to bed early
And nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late

Lifehouse - Somewhere in Between

I can't be losing sleep
over this, no I can't
and now I cannot stop pacing
give me a few hours
I'll have this all sorted out
if my mind would just stop racing

cause I cannot stand still
I can't be this unsturdy
this cannot be happening

this is over my head
but underneath my feet
cause by tomorrow morning
I'll have this thing beat
and everything will be back to the way that it was
I wish that it was just that easy

cause I'm waiting for tonight
and then waiting for tomorrow
and I'm somewhere in between
what is real and just a dream
what is real and just a dream
what is real and just a dream

would you catch me if I fall out of what I fell in
don't be surprised if I collapse
down at your feet again
I don't want to run away from this
I know that I just don't need this

cause I cannot stand still
I can't be this unsturdy
this cannot be happening, yeah

cause I'm waiting for tonight
and then waiting for tomorrow
and I'm somewhere in between
what is real and just a dream
what is real and just a dream
what is real and just a dream
what is real and just a dream

I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I'm 33 for a moment
Still the man, but you see I'm a they
A kid on the way
A family on my mind

I'm 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I'm heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy, Time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

15 I'm all right with you
15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly youíre wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We're moving on...

I'm 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

15 there's still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 youíre on your way
Every day's a new day...

15 there's still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Some of you might know this song from the ending of the anime Outlaw Star. I've no idea if this is a popular song outside of that context, and this isn't even the original language, but even so, the song and lyrics are amazing beautiful to me. I don't know who sings it or anything, and i'm not going to attempt to write up anything but the translation. Something about this song just gets to me.



One soundless mid-day,
the wind was so cheerful.
Flower petals sway in the breeze
as if they were sleepy.

This serene feeling...
Tell me, what's the word people use for it?

Tell me a story that's locked away
in the white-sand moon.
Let me hear it
as gently as light shining down...

Will the time come? When you will know the pain in my heart?
Then you'd be able to be gentler than you are now.

Such a warm feeling...
Tell me, what's the name that people give to it?

Softly, let me hear
of the distant future,
so bright it can't be seen,
like a white-sand moon.

radiohead - no surprises

a heart that's full up like a landfill
a job that slowly kills you
bruises that won't heal
you look so tired-unhappy
bring down the government
they don't
they don't speak for us
i'll take a quiet life
a handshake of carbon monoxide

with no alarms and no surprises
no alarms and no surprises
no alarms and no surprises
silent silence

this is my final fit
my final bellyache

with no alarms and no surprises
no alarms and no surprises
no alarms and no surprises please

such a pretty house
and such a pretty garden

no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please

I've had this stuck in my head for quite a while now, but I don't mind so much because Jewel does some good music. I very much prefer her old to her new, though. Anywho, this is Down So Long.

Sun sets across the ocean.
I'm a thousand miles from anywhere.
My pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen,
And the sun acts like she don't even care.

The wind blows cold when you reach the top,
It feels like someone's face is stuck to the bottom of my shoe.
I got a plastic Jesus, a cordless telephone for every corner of my room,
Got everybody but you telling me what to do.

But I've been down so long,
Ooh, it can't be longer still...
I've been down so long,
That the end must be drawing near.

I look to everybody but me to answer my prayers,
'Til I saw an angel in a bathroom who said she saw no one worth saving anywhere.
And a blind man on the corner said it's simple, like flipping a coin...
Don't mater what side it lands on if it's someone else's dime.

But I've been down so long,
Ooh, it can't be longer still...
We've been down so long,
That the end must be drawing near.

I take a trip, I catch a train, I catch a plane,
I got a ticket in my hand.
And then a fat man takes my money,
And like cattle we all stand.

But we've been down so long,
Ooh, it can't be longer still...
We've been down so long,
The end must be...
I know the end must be...
Oh, I know the end must be drawing near.

Survivor - Eye of the Tiger

Risin' up, back on the street
Took my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happened too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds
Still we take to the street
Fot the kill with the skill to survive

It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger

Risin' up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger

i've always loved this song, and i just heard it and felt like positing the lyrics. :)

Love hangs herself
With the bedsheets in her cell
Threw myself on fires for you
Ten good reasons to stay alive
Ten good reasons that I can't find

Oh, give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body
So sick in his soul
Oh, give me one reason to be beautiful
Oh, and everything I am

Love hates you
I live my life in ruins for you
And for all your secrets kept
I squashed the blossom
Now the blossom's dead

Oh, give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body
So sick in his soul
Oh, and I will make myself so beautiful
Oh, and everything I am

Miles and miles of perfect skin
I swear I do, I fit right in
My love burns through everything
I cannot breathe
Miles and miles of perfect sin
I swear, I said, I fit right in
I fit right in your perfect skin
I cannot breathe

Hey, baby, take it all the way down
Hey, baby, taste me anyway
Oh, you were born so pretty
Oh summerbabe, we'll never know
And fading like a rose

Give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body
So sick in his soul
I'll give you my body
Just sell me your soul
Oh, and everything I am will be bought and sold
Oh, and everything I am will turn hard and cold


And they say in the end
You'll get better just like them
And they steal your heart away
When the fire goes out you better learn to fake
It's better to rise than fade away

Hey, you were right
Named a star for your eyes
Did you freeze?
Did you weep?
Turn to gold, baby, sleep

Hey, honey mine
I was there all the time
And I weep at your feet
And it rains and rains

"I See Monsters" by Ryan Adams

Baby, I know you cannot hear me now
'Cause you're fast asleep
But I love you now
Colors inside your head go spinning around
Like a ferris wheel
Exploding and falling to the ground
Oh, people are screaming, people are screaming
My baby, she's dreaming
Oh, people are shouting, people are freaking
I'm just staring at the ceiling
Waiting for the feeling
Oh, oh but when she calls,
I know she's the one
Makes me want her harder
Makes me want to be a little stronger
Still I see monsters
Still I see monsters

Baby, I know you cannot hear me now
'Cause you're flying around
At the speed of sound
Colors inside your head go spinning around
Like a ferris wheel
Exploding and falling to the ground
Oh, people are screaming, people are screaming
My babies, she's dreaming

Oh, people are shouting, people are freaking
I'm just staring at the ceiling
Waiting for the feeling
Oh, oh when she calls
I know that she's the one
Makes me want it harder
Makes me want to be a little stronger
Still I see the monsters
Still I see the monsters

I do like this song, but I'm mainly posting it here so as to be able to access it quickly on any computer. I'm making my end of term movie on this song, I thought it was called The Man Comes Around, but I was mistaken its called I Hung My Head and its by Johnny Cash.


Early one morning
With time to kill
I borrowed Jebb's rifle
And sat on a hill
I saw a lone rider
Crossing the plain
I drew a bead on him
To practice my aim

My brother's rifle
Went of in my hand
A shot rang out
Across the land
The horse, he kept running
The rider was dead
I hung my head
I hung my head

I set off running
To wake from the dream
My brother's rifle
Went into the sheen
I kept on running
Into the south lands
That's where they found me
My head and my hands
The sheriff he asked me
Why had I run
And then it came to me
Just what I had done
And all for no reason
Just one peace of lead
I hung my head
I hung my head

Here in the court house
The whole town was there
I see the judge
High up in the chair
Explain to the court room
What went through you mind
And we'll ask the jury
What verdict they find
I felt the power
Of death over life
I orphaned his children
I widowed his wife
I begged their forgiveness
I wish I was dead
I hung my head
I hung my head
I hung my head
I hung my head

Early one morning
With time to kill
I see the gallows
Up on a hill
And out in the distance
A trick of the brain
I see a lone rider
Crossing the plain
And he'd come to fetch me
To see what they'd done
And we'd ride together
To kingdom come
I prayed for god's mercy
For soon I'd be dead
I hung my head
I hung my head
I hung my head
I hung my head

Close my eyes
Let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste, asking why

Iíll run away with you by my side
Iíll run away with you by my side
(Iíll run away with you, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
(Asking why)

I think about your face
And how I fall into your eyes
The outline that I trace
Around the one that I call mine
Time that called for space
Unclear where you drew the line
I donít need to solve this case
And I donít need to look behind

Close my eyes
Let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste, asking why
(Asking why)

Iíll run away with you by my side (By my side)
Iíll run away with you by my side
(By my side, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
(Asking why)

Do I expect to change
The past I hold inside
With all the words I say
Repeating over in my mind
Some things you canít erase
No matter how hard you try
An exit to escape
Is all there is left to find

Close my eyes
Let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste, asking why
(Asking why)

Iíll run away with you by my side (By my side)
Iíll run away with you by my side
(There is no time, let the whole thing pass me by)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo in my mind
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo can subside

I know I always loved you
I know I always loved you
I know I always loved you

So I close my eyes
Let the whole thing pass me by
There is no time to waste, asking why

Iíll run away with you by my side
Iíll run away with you by my side
(Let the whole thing pass me by, there is no time)
I need to let go, let go, let go, let go of this pride
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo in my mind
Until this echo, echo, echo, echo can subside

We see the billboard girl
the one devoted to ritual
standing in the rain
holding all of her pain inside

I know you're hurting now
but I can't point my finger at
the words I should or shouldn't say
anything
to take the pain away

to walk alone on the streets tonight
and fear nothing
to choose to love what we are in this life
and shine brighter
don't let the crosses and dollar signs
the symbols of man unkind
make you feel
that you're not real
all this time walk out
out of the shadows

we see the lines in chalk
the warning sign for where we walk
in the shadows of the cities maze
to try and fight
for better days

yeah we're ungrateful
yeah we're ungrateful for
holy books, religious men
values of beauty, original sin
all this time we unwind it
i won't give up, i'm not afraid

Resister go
as long as it takes
to reverse the hypocrisy
challenge the stakes
of safety and survival
at the heart
of women's voices
women's art

to walk alone on the streets tonight
and fear nothing
to choose to love what we are in this life
all that matters
don't let the crosses and dollar signs
the symbols of man unkind . . .
I won't give up
through all this time walk out
out of the shadows

if we take
our strength
to market
to trade
for their
ugly
beauty
watch us
grow up
to war


no more

Hey dad
Look at me
Think back and talk to me
Did I grow up according to plan?
And do you think Iím wasting my time
Doing things I wanna do
But it hurts when you disapprove all along
And now I try hard to make it
I just wanna make you proud
Iím never gonna be good enough for you
I canít pretend that Iím alright
And you canít change me

Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
Iím sorry I canít be perfect
Now itís just too late
And we canít go back
Iím sorry I canít be perfect

I try not to think
About the pain I feel inside
Did you know you used to be my hero
All the days you spent with me
Now seem so far away
And it feels like
You donít care anymore
And now I try hard to make it
I just wanna make you proud
Iím never gonna be good enough for you
I canít stand another fight
Nothingís all right

Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
Iím sorry I canít be perfect
Now itís just too late
And we canít go back
Iím sorry I canít be perfect

Nothingís gonna change
The things that you said
And nothingís gonna make this right again
And please donít turn your back
I canít believe itís hard just to talk to you
But you donít understand

Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
Iím sorry I canít be perfect
Now itís just too late
And we canít go back
Iím sorry I canít be perfect

weíre rotten fruit
weíre damaged goods
what the hell weíve got nothing more to lose
one gust and we will probably crumble
weíre backdrifting
this far but no further
iím hanging off a branch
iím teetering on a brink
of honey sweets
so fall asleep
iím backsliding
you fell into our arms
you fell into our arms
we tried but there was nothing we could do
nothing we could do
all evidence has been buried
all tapes have been erased
but your footsteps give you away
so youíre backtracking
oh oh oh
you fell into our arms
you fell into our arms
we tried but there was nothing we could do
nothing we could do

you fell into a

touched
you say that i am too
so much
of what you say is true
i'll never
find someone quite like you
again
i'll never find someone quite like you

the razors and the dying roses plead
i don't leave you alone
the demi-gods and hungry ghosts
god, god knows i'm not at home

i'll never find someone quite like you
again

i, i looked into your eyes and
saw a world that does not exist
i looked into your eyes and
saw a world i wish i was in

i'll never find someone quite as touched as you
i'll never love someone quite the way
that i
loved you

i :love: these lyrics. i feel this way all the time. :)


where do i put the shame?
it feels like a broken toy
i can't play with anymore
where do i put the hate?
to a pixelated screen
i can't watch anymore

all i know is that
i'm here drifting
somewhere in the vast
somewhere in eternity
and
i never want to leave

where do i put the books
there's so many i could read
but
they are all filed
with lies
where do i put the lies
there's so many i could say
but
it seems they're
in the books

i have faith that
you're out there living high
up in the vast
somewhere in eternity
and
you're never going to leave

have i been telling
lies to myself?
hold me now you know
i am so afraid
to be at all
have i been telling lies
to myself?
hold me now you know
i'm so afraid to love at all

where do i put the love?
where do i put the love?

radiohead - lucky

i'm on a roll, i'm on a roll
this time, i feel my luck could change
kill me sarah, kill me again with love
it's gonna be a glorious day

pull me out of the aircrash
pull me out of the lake
i'm your superhero
we are standing on the edge

the head of state has called for me by name
but i don't have time for him
it's gonna be a glorious day
i feel my luck could change

pull me out of the aircrash
pull me out of the lake
i'm your superhero
we are standing on the edge

I heard this song on the radio for the first time in ages...and so its, of course, stuck in my head...

Everything You Want
by Vertical Horizon



Somewhere there's speaking
It's already coming in
Oh, and it's rising at the back of your mind

You never could get it
Unless you were fed it
Now you're here and you don't know why

But under skinned knees
And the skid marks
Past the places where you used to learn

You howl and listen
Listen and wait for the
Echoes of angels who won't return

He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why

You're waiting for someone
To put you together
You're waiting for someone to push you away

There's always another
Wound to discover
There's always something more you wish he'd say

He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why

But you'll just sit tight
And watch it unwind
It's only what you're asking for
And you'll be just fine
With all of your time
It's only what you're waiting for

Out of the island
Into the highway
Past the places where you might have turned

You never did notice
But you still hide away
The anger of angels who won't return

He's everything you want
He's everything you need
He's everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
He says all the right things
At exactly the right time
But he means nothing to you
And you don't know why

I am everything you want
I am everything you need
I am everything inside of you
That you wish you could be
I say all the right things
At exactly the right time
But I mean nothing to you
And I don't know why

And I don't know
Why
Why
And I don't know

Corey Hart: Sunglasses At Night

I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, So I can
Watch you weave then breathe your story lines
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, So I can
Keep track of the visions in my eyes

While, she's deceiving me,
It cuts my security (has)
she got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades;
(oh no)
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades;
(oh no) (I can't believe it)
You got it made with the guy in shades;
(oh no)

I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, So I can
Forget my name while you collect your claim
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can, So I can
See the light that's right before my eyes

While she's deceiving me,
she cuts my security (has)
She got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades
(oh no)
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades
( oh no) (I can't believe it)
don't be afraid of the guy in shades
(oh No) (It can't escape you)
he can't escape you cause ;
(cus) You got it made with the guy in shades
( oh no)

I said
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night

I say to ya now
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night

I cry to you now
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night

Tool - Pushit

I will choke until I swallow...
Choke this infant here before me.
What is this but my reflection?
Who am I to judge and strike you down?

But you're
Pushing and shoving me.
You still love me and you pushit on me.

Rest your trigger on my finger,
bang my head upon the fault line.
Take care not to make me enter.
'cause if I do we both may disappear.

But you're pushing me,
Shoving me. Pushit on me.

Slipping back into the gap again.
I'm alive when you're touching me,
Alive when you're shoving me down.

But i'd trade it all
For just a little bit of
Piece of mind.

Put me somewhere I don't wanna be.
Seeing someplace I don't wanna see.
Never wanna see that place again.

Saw that gap again today
As you were begging me to stay.
Managed to push myself away,
And you, as well.

If, when I say I may fade like a sigh if I stay,
You minimize my movement anyway,
I must persuade you another way.

There's no love in fear.

Staring down the hole again.
Hands upon my back again.
Survival is my only friend.
Terrified of what may come.

Just remember I will always love you,
Even as I tear your fucking throat away.
But it will end no other way.

the person that this is for will never read this, but it really seems to say it all, in a way I never could.


Numb
by Linkin Park

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I'm becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've tired of being what you want me to be
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've tired of being what you want me to be

Red Hot chili peppers
universally speaking

I saw your face
Elegant and tired
Cut up from the chase
Still I so admired
Bloodshot your smile
Delicate and wild
Give me she wolf style
Rip right thru me

[Pre-chorus]
Silveretta the jets of a lifetime
Go and get her ive got her on my mind
Nothing better then feeling is so fine
Simply put I saw love stream flow

[Chorus]
Come on baby 'cause cause there's no name for

Give it up and I got what I came for
Universally speaking
Take it back and you make me nervous
Nothing better then love and service
Universally speaking I
Win in the long run

I saw your crime
Dying to get high
Two of a kind
Beats all hands tonight

Nobody does it quite like Wierd Al

The Night Santa Went Crazy - Wierd Al Yankovich

Down in the workshop all the elves were making toys
For the good Gentile girls and the good Gentile boys
When the boss busted in, nearly scared 'em half to death
Had a rifle in his hands and cheap whiskey on his breath
From his beard to his boots he was covered in ammo
Like a big fat drunk disgruntled Yuletide Rambo
And he smiled as he said with a twinkle in his eye
"Merry Christmas to all - now you're all gonna die!"

The night Santa went crazy
The night Saint Nick went insane
Realized he'd been getting a raw deal
Something finally must've snapped in his brain

Well the workshop is gone now, he decided to bomb it
Everywhere you'll find pieces of Cupid and Comet
Then he tied up his helpers and he held the elves hostage
And he ground up poor Rudolph into reindeer sausage
He got Dancer and Prancer with and old German Luger
And he slashed up poor Dasher just like Freddy Krueger
Then he picked up a flamethrower and he barbecued Blitzen
Then he took a big bite and said "It tastes just like chicken!"

The night Santa went crazy
The night Kris Kringle went nuts
Now you can't hardly walk around the North Pole
Without stepping in reindeer guts

There's the National Guard and the FBI
There's a van from the Eyewitness News
And helicopters circling 'round in the sky
Now the bullets keep flying the body count's rising
And everybody’s dying to know - Santa, why?
My, my, my, my - you used to be such a jolly guy.

Yes, Virginia, now Santa's doing time
In a Federal prison for his infamous crime
Hey little friend now, don't you cry no more tears
He'll be out with good behavior in seven hundred more years.

Now Vixen's in therapy and Donner's still nervous
And the elves all got jobs working for the postal service
And they say Mrs. Claus she's on the phone every night
With a lawyer negotiating the movie rights
(They talk about)

The night Santa went crazy
The night Saint Nicholas flipped
Broke his back for some milk and cookies
Seems to me like he was tired of getting gypped

The night Santa went crazy
The night Saint Nick went insane
Realized he'd been getting a raw deal
Something finally must've snapped in his brain
Something finally must've snapped in his brain
Tell ya something finally must've snapped in his brain.

PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC - JAMES BROWN

Once I was a boogie singer,
Playin' in a rock'n'roll band.
I never had no problems,
Burnin' down the one night stands.

And everything around me,
Got to start to feelin' so low.
And I decided quickly (Yes I did)
To disco down and check out the show.

Yeah they were
Dancin' and singin'
and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me,
Somebody turned around and shouted...
Play that funky music, white boy.
Play that funky music right.
Play that funky music, white boy.
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die.
Till you die.
Oh, till you die.

I tried to understand this.
I thought that they were outta their minds.
How could I be so foolish (How could I)
To not see I was the one behind.

So still I kept on fighting,
Losing every step of the way.
I said, I must go back there (I got to go back)
And check to see if things still the same.

Yeah they were
Dancin' and singin'
and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me,
Somebody turned around and shouted...
Play that funky music, white boy.
Play that funky music right.
Play that funky music, white boy.
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die.
Till you die.
Oh, till you die.

Now first it wasn't easy,
Changing in rock'n'rollin' minds.
And things were gettin' shaky,
I thought I'd have to leave it behind.

But now it's so much better (It's so much better)
I'm funking out in every way.
Well, I'll never loose that feeling (You know I won't)
Of how I learned my lesson that day.

When they were
Dancin' and singin'
and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me,
Somebody turned around and shouted...
Play that funky music, white boy.
Play that funky music right.
Play that ufnky music, white boy.
Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die.
Till you die.
Oh, till you die.

They shouted:
Play that funky music (Play that funky music)
Play that funky music (You've got to keep on playin' that funky music)
Play that funky music (Play that funky music)
Play that funky music (Wanna take it higher now)
Play that funky music, white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music, white boy
Play that funky music right

i've had this song stuck in my head for the last two days, and with good reason

Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees

A green plastic watering can
For a fake chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns

He used to do surgery
On girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

And it wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love

But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time, all the time

this song came on my random today walking to work, and i remembered how much i like it, and i kind of feel this way a little today.

Hole - Reasons to Be Beautiful

Love hangs herself
With the bedsheets in her cell
Threw myself on fires for you
10 good reasons to stay alive
10 good reasons that I can't find

Oh, give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body, so sick in his soul
Oh, give me one reason to be beautiful
Oh, and everything I am

Love hates you
I live my life in ruins for you
And for all your secrets kept
I squashed the blossom and the blossom's
dead

Oh, give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body, so sick in his soul
Oh, and I will make myself so beautiful
Oh, and everything I am

Miles and miles of perfect skin
I swear I do, I fit right in
My love burns through everything
I cannot breathe

Miles and miles of perfect sin
I swear, I said, I fit right in
I fit right in your perfect skin
I cannot breathe

Hey, baby, take it all the way...down
Hey, baby, taste me anyway
Oh, you were born
So pretty oh summerbabe
We'll never know...
And fading like a rose

Give me a reason to be beautiful
So sick in his body, so sick in his soul
I'll give you my body,
just sell me your soul
Oh, and everything I am will be bought and sold
Oh, and everything I am will turn hard and cold

And they say in the end
You'll get bitter just like them
And they steal your heart away
When the fire goes out you better learn
to fake
It's better to rise than fade away.....


Hey you were right
Named a star for your eyes
Did you freeze did you weep
Turn to gold, baby, sleep
Hey honey mine
I was there all the time
And I weep at your feet
And it rains and rains

lost's rampage against preppie people reminded me of this ;)


she bought herself a diamond ring
before the evening show
a ninety dollar bracelet
on daddy's visa gold
short black skirts on warm days
with her black socks to her knees
now she's wearing corduroy
instead of bongo jeans
she's a preppie girl
who rules the fashion world
she's a preppie girl
makes me wanna hurl
fucking preppie girl

walks to church on sunday
with her bottle in her hand
wishing she was a rebel
who could terrorise the land
whose that standing so close to her
holding her preppie hand
maybe it is a running back
or just a preppie man

she's a preppie girl
who rules the fashion world
she's a preppie girl
makes me wanna hurl
fucking preppie girl

she's got a senior boyfriend
now that bitch is just fifteen
will she lose
will she lose
will she lose
her virginity
well he takes her out on prom night
and he shows her a good time
will he be in her pants by nine?

she's a preppie girl
who rules the fashion world
she's a preppie girl
makes me wanna hurl
fucking preppie girl

to you we wish the best of luck
in your oh so preppie life
and if you play your cards right
you might end up a plumbers wife

On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
You can hear the engine moaniní out his one long one note song
You can think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will be wandering the way they always do
When youíre ridiní sixteen hours and thereís nothiní much to do
And you donít feel much like ridiní, you just wish the trip was through
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playiní star again
There I go
Turn the page
Well you walk into a restaurant, strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you as youíre shakiní off the cold
You pretend it doesnít bother you but you just want to explode
Most times you canít hear them talk, other times you can
All the same old clichťís, ďIs that a woman or a man?Ē
And you always seem outnumbered, you donít dare make a stand
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playiní star again
There I go
Turn the page
Out there in the spotlight youíre a million miles away
Every ounce of energy you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play
Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes of the amplifiers ringiní in your head
You smoke the dayís last cigarette, rememberiní what she said
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playiní star again
There I go
Turn the page
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playiní star again
There I go
There I go

The person these are for will never read this but if he did i'd say " this is how you make me feel everyday"

"Foolish"

See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby I don't know why ya treatin me so bad
You said you love me, no one above me
And I was all you had
And though my heart is eating for ya
I can't stop crying
I don't know how
I allow you to treat me this way and still I stay

See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby I don't know why ya wanna do me wrong
See when I'm home, I'm all alone
And you are always gone
And boy, you know I really love you
I can't deny
I can't see how you could bring me to so many tears
after all these years

See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
Oohhhhh
I trusted you, I trusted you
So sad, so sad
what love will make you do
All the things that we accept
Be the things that we regret
Too all of my ladies (ladies)
Feel me c'mon sing wit me
See, when I get the strength to leave
You always tell me that you need me
And I'm weak cause I believe you
And I'm mad because I love you
So I stop and think that maybe
You can learn to appreciate me
Then it all remains the same that
You ain't never gonna change
(never gonna change, never gonna change)
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while im with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while im with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby why you hurt me leave me and desert me
Boy I gave you all my heart
And all you do is tear it up
Looking out my window
Knowing that I should go
Even when I pack my bags
This something always hold me back

SO FAR AWAY

This is my life
It's not what it was before
All these feelings I've shared
And these are my dreams
That I'd never lived before
Somebody shake me 'cause I
I must be sleeping
Chorus
Now that we're here, it's so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes, one life contained
They all finally start to go away
And now that we're here, it's so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
And I can forgive
And I'm not ashamed to be
The Person that I am today

These are my words
That I've never said before
I think I'm doing okay
And this is the smile
That I've never shown before
Somebody shake me 'cause I
I must be sleeping

Chorus (altered)
Now that we're here, it's so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes, one life contained
They all finally start to go away
And now that we're here, it's so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive
And I'm not ashamed to be
The Person that I am today

I'm so afraid of waking
Please don't shake me
Afraid of waking
Please don't shake me

Chorus

And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead - A Witch's Web

Told a lie about yourself
It felt so good to decieve
You pulled the wool over everyone
Told them whatever they'd believe

You missed the train and now you're gone
To join the faceless everyone
You're a name on a phone list I've crossed off
I've pushed you back to square one

And if I fall then I'll stand back up
Because learning how to run is half the fun
Somehow I know that there must be something better
No one's gonna have power over me

If there's a sign above the door (over you)
That says you have to hang your coat
But you're wanting me to pay the doorman with my soul
I think that I'll be moving on

Your witch's web is hanging over my sleep
My one half lies awake, the other in a dream
Somehow I know that there must be something better
No one's gonna have power over me.

vast - i'm dying

jesus christ
are you the son of god?
i want to know
you ask that i believe
not one day goes by that i don't compromise
your love for the cold love of the world
it's killing me through my own evil pride
not one day goes by that i don't know that i'm dying
jesus christ
are you the savior of the world?
i want to see
but i still believe
not one day goes by that i don't realize
i know that no one will ever know
where the flowers go when they are gone
not one day goes by that i don't know that i'm dying
i want to say
you all are too
i want to say
you all are too

Warning...explicit lyrics
"I'm An Asshole" by Dennis Leary

Folks, Id like to sing a song about the American Dream
About me, about you
About the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottom of our chests
About that special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts
Maybe below the cockles,
Maybe in the sub cockle area,
Maybe in the liver, maybe in the kidneys,
Maybe even in the colon, we dont know

Im just a regular Joe, with a regular job
Im your average white, suburbanite slob
I like football and porno and books about war
I got an average house, with a nice hardwood floor
My wife and my job, my kids and my car
My feet on my table, and a Cuban cigar

But sometimes that just aint enough to keep a man like me interested
(oh no, no way, uh uh)
No I gotta go out and have fun at someone elses expense
(woah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)

I drive really slow in the ultra fast lane
While people behind me are going insane

Im an asshole (hes an asshole)
Im an asshole (hes an asshole, such an asshole)

I use public toilets and I piss on the seat
I walk around in the summer time saying "how about this heat?"

Im an asshole (hes an asshole)
Im an asshole (hes the worlds biggest asshole)

Sometimes I park in handicapped spaces
While handicapped people make handicapped faces

Im an asshole (hes an asshole)
Im an asshole (hes a real fucking asshole)

Maybe I shouldnt be singing this song
Ranting and raving and carrying on
Maybe theyre right when they tell me Im wrong

Nah
Im an asshole (hes an asshole)
Im an asshole (hes the worlds biggest asshole)

You know what Im gonna do
Im gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado convertible
Hot pink, with whale skin hubcaps
And all leather cow interior
And make brown baby seal eyes for head lights (yeah)
And Im gonna drive in that baby at 115 miles per hour
Gettin' 1 mile per gallon,
Sucking down Quarter Pounder cheeseburgers from McDonalds
In the old fashioned non-biodegradable styrofoam containers
And when Im done sucking down those greeseball burgers
Im gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag
And then Im gonna toss the styrofoam containers right out the side
And there aint a goddamn thing anybody can do about it
You know why, because weve got the bombs, thats why
2 words, nuclear fucking weapons, OK?
Russia, Germany, Romania, they can have all the democracy they want
They can have a big democracy cakewalk
Right through the middle of Tiananmen Square
and it wont make a lick of difference
Because weve got the bombs, OK?
John Wayne's not dead, hes frozen, and as soon as we find a cure for cancer
Were gonna thaw out the duke and hes gonna be pretty pissed off
You know why,
Have you ever taken a cold shower, well multiply that by 15 million times
Thats how pissed off the dukes gonna be!
I'm gonna get the Duke, and John Cassavetes,
and Lee Marvin, and Sam Peckinpah, and a case of whiskey,
and drive down to Texas and say.....

(Hey! You know, you really are an asshole!)
Why don't you just shut up and sing the song, pal?

Im an asshole (hes an asshole)
Im an asshole (hes the worlds biggest asshole)

A-S-S-H-O-L-E
Everybody
A-S-S-H-O-L-E

Im an asshole and Im proud of it :D

Rammstein- Seemann
Komm in mein Boot
ein Sturm kommt auf
und es wird Nacht
Wo willst du hin
so ganz allein
treibst du davon
Wer hšlt deine Hand
wenn es dich
nach unten zieht

Wo willst du hin
so uferlos
die kalte See
Komm in mein Boot
der Herbstwind hšlt
die Segel straff

Jetzt stehst du da an der Laterne
mit Tršnen im Gesicht
das Tageslicht fšllt auf die Seite
der Herbstwind fegt die StraŖe leer

Jetzt stehst du da an der Laterne
hast Tršnen im Gesicht
das Abendlicht verjagt die Schatten
die Zeit steht still und es wird Herbst

Komm in mein Boot
die Sehnsucht wird
der Steuermann
Komm in mein Boot
der beste Seemann
war doch ich

Jetzt stehst du da an der Laterne
hast Tršnen im Gesicht
das Feuer nimmst du von der Kerze
die Zeit steht still und es wird Herbst

Sie sprachen nur von deiner Mutter
so gnadenlos ist nur die Nacht
am Ende bleib ich doch alleine
die Zeit steht still
und mir ist kalt

.... without a doubt my favorite Tool song. beautiful poetry.



Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see there is so much more
and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition leaving all these opportunities behind.

Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected
enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral
of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in,
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out,
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going, going...

Jewel
"Foolish Games"

You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You're always crazy like that.
And I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you.
You're always the mysterious one with
Dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive
But too cool to care.
You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
Besides some comment on the weather.

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees, and...

[Chorus]
These foolish games are tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart.
You're breaking my heart.

You're always brilliant in the morning,
Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee.
Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you.
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar.
You'd teach me of honest things,
Things that were daring, things that were clean.
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean.
I hid my soiled hands behind my back.
Somewhere along the line, I must've gone
Off track with you.

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else,
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself.

[Chorus]
You took your coat off,
Stood in the rain,
You're always crazy like that.

Alanis Morissette - Everything Lyrics


I can be a nightmare of the grandest kind
I can withhold like it's going out of style
I have the bravest heart that you've ever seen
And you've never met anyone who's as positive as I am sometimes

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

I blame everyone else, not my own partaking
My passive-aggressiveness can be devastating
I'm the most gorgeous woman that you've ever known
And you've never met anyone who's as everything as I am sometimes

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

What I resist, persists, and speaks louder than I know
What I resist, you love, no matter how low or high I go

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

And you're still here
And you're still here...

radiohead - street spirit (fade out)

rows of houses, all bearing down on me
i can feel their blue hands touching me
all these things into position
all these things we'll one day swallow whole
and fade out again and fade out

this machine will, will not communicate
these thoughts and the strain i am under
be a world child, form a circle
before we all go under
and fade out again and fade out again

cracked eggs, dead birds
scream as they fight for life
i can feel death, can see its beady eyes
all these things into position
all these things we'll one day swallow whole
and fade out again and fade out again

immerse your soul in love
immerse your soul in love

Help me if you can
It's just that this is
not the way i'm wired
so could you please,

Help me understand why
you've given in to all these
reckless dark desires
you're
Lying to yourself again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it, put it on the faultline
What'll it take to get it through to you precious
over this, why do you
wanna throw it away like this
Such a mess, well I don't wanna watch you

Disconnect and self destruct one
bullet at a time
What's your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

Medicated, drama queen,
picture perfect, no more legiments
Narcisistic, drama queen, craving fame and all it's decadance

Lying through your teeth again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it, put it on the fautline
What'll it take to get it through to you precious
over this, why do you wanna
throw it away like this
Such a mess, well I don't wanna watch you

Disconnect and self destruct one
bullet at a time
What's your rush now, everyone will have his day to die

They were right about you
They were right about you

Lying to my face again
Suicidal imbecile
Think about it put it on the fautline
What'll it take to get it through to you precious
over this , why do you wanna
throw it away like this
Such a mess, over this, over this

Disconnect and self destruct,
one bullet at a time
What's your hurry, everyone will have his day to die
If you choose to pull the trigger, should your drama prove sincere,
Do it somewhere far away from here

Close enough to look in my eyes, Satan-ah!
Keep a little mystery, kissin' me,

Is it just a matter of time, Satan-ah?

Or is it just a game in my mind, Satan-ah?

Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder)- Pure Imagination

Come with me and you'll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin with a spin
Trav'ling in the world of my creation
What we'll see will defy
Explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world, there's nothing to it

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you'll be free
If you truly wish to be

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it

Beautifully Broken - Gov't Mule

Mysterious - blown in with the night
All this beauty captured in a frame
Visibly shaken but never stirred - drives them insane
I see the way she plays her men - and I know I've got to know her name

She's so beautifully broken - shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted - Here I go again

I see the way she casts her spell - It's like drowning in moonlight
Discards them when she's done - they're lost in her twilight
I watch her move from star to star and I wonder why,
why it feels so right

She's so beautifully broken - you can hardly see the flaw
Especially from a distance - which is always how I fall

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones - the ones that never learned to let go
And why do I lie to myself and pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so beautifully broken

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones - the ones that
Don't know how to let go
And why do I lie to myself and pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so beautifully broken

She's so beautifully broken - shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted - Here I go again
Here I go again

you've got me hooked, Anita. :) i was a bit disappointed by Music for People, but VAST was unbelievable.


VAST-Land of Shame

Looking out my window staring
At the things that I can't see
If I listen closely
I can hear, I can hear
I can hear a dying dream
I'm wrapped up in the warmth
Of an unforgiving mind
I'm on vacation in another time
And we can thank the TV
We can thank the men of old for this legacy of hate
Somehow, somehow they have sold
I'm wrapped up in the warmth
Of an unforgiving game
I'm on vacation in the land of shame
When the pigs are flying
And it's freezing cold in hell
Maybe we'll forgive the children, baby
Only time will tell
Yeah yeah
If I listen closely
I can hear, I can hear
I can hear a dying dream
I'm on vacation in the land of shame
We'll be alone together
In a world we call our own
We'll be alone together
In a place that doesn't feel like home
Yeah yeah
I can hear, I can hear
I can hear a dying dream
Dying dream
Dying dream
Dying dream
We'll be alone together
In a world we call our own
We'll be alone together
In a place that doesn't feel like home
We'll be alone together
In a world we call our own
In a place that doesn't feel like home
We'll be alone together
We'll leave this land of shame

Blonde Redhead - Equus

Allow me to show you
The way which I adore you

Sometimes I think I must
Just let you be a horse
All I want is to be a rider
To be part of you

Afraid so afraid
To loose you
If someone looks at you
Turn into donkey
Pretend you are lame

Equus by nature
Timid creature
Ready to run away
Equus by nature
Timid creature
Cares nothing
For the plans they made

I will hide you
Will protect you
Wonít let anyone
Take you away


(from their new album "misery is a butterfly". kind of artsy, the music has a definite orchestral sound but not in an overly dramatic way. apparently if you like sonic youth you might be inclined to like this, but i wouldn't know as i've never listened to sonic youth. very nice album anyway :) )

Blonde Redhead - Falling Man

Tell me how you seek your man
And tell me all your secret spells
Tell me how you learn
To tell by his voice that he fell

I know a ghost will walk through walls
Yet I am just a man still learning how to fall

Try to re-imagine me
And Iíll re-invent myself
Still I remember scenes
Of when you looked at someone else

I know a ghost can walk through the wall
Yet I am just a man still learning how to fall

When you start doubting me
Then I start to doubt myself
And never look through me
Cause Iíll keep close to myself

I know a ghost can walk through the wall
Yet I am just a man still learning how to fall

I am what I am
And what I am is who I am
I know what I know
And all I know is that I fell
If only I could walk through walls
Then maybe I would tell you who I was
Yet I am just a man still learning how to fall

West Side Story - I Feel Pretty

Maria
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.

I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real.

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning
And entrancing,
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

Girls
Have you met my good friend Maria,
The craziest girl on the block?
You'll know her the minute you see her,
She's the one who is in an advanced state of shock.

She thinks she's in love.
She thinks she's in Spain.
She isn't in love,
She's merely insane.

It must be the heat
Or some rare disease,
Or too much to eat
Or maybe it's fleas.

Keep away from her,
Send for Chino!
This is not the
Maria we know!

Modest and pure,
Polite and refined,
Well-bred and mature
And out of her mind!

MARIA
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty
That the city should give me its key.
A committee
Should be organized to honor me.

GIRLS
La la la la . . .

MARIA
I feel dizzy,
I feel sunny,
I feel fizzy and funny and fine,
And so pretty,
Miss America can just resign!

GIRLS
La la la la . . .

MARIA
See the pretty girl in that mirror there:

GIRLS
What mirror where?

MARIA
Who can that attractive girl be?

GIRLS
Which? What? Where? Whom?

MARIA
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

GIRLS
Such a pretty me!

I feel stunning
And entrancing,
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I'm loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!

Not Enough Time
INXS

And I was lost for words
In your arms
Attempting to make sense
Of my aching heart
If I could just be
Everything and everyone to you
This life would just be so easy

Not enough time for all
That I want for you
Not enough time for every kiss
And every touch and all the nights
I wanna be inside you

We will make time stop
For the two of us
Make time stop
And listen for our sighs

Not enough time for all
That I want for you
Not enough time for every kiss
And every touch and all the nights
I wanna be inside you

In our fight against the end
Making love we are immortal
We are the last two left on earth
And I was lost for words
In your arms
Attempting to make sense of
My aching heart
If I could just be everything
And everyone to you

Not enough time for all
That I want for you
Not enough time for every kiss
Not enough time for all my love
Not enough time for every touch

Not enough time for all
That I want for you
Not enough time for every kiss
And every touch and all the nights
I wanna be inside you

just had this song in my head randomly and decided to post the lyrics. :)

Somewhere - Soundgarden

I wish a wish I dream to dream
I try to try and I live to live
And die to die and I cry to cry
But I know why


Somewhere in my dreams
Things that should
Still the willow weeps
On roses for the dead
In laughs of love


From the likes of her
To time of me
Like to moon to earth
Or the sky to sea
Only were no longer
Allowed to be, to be


Somewhere in the dreams
Of those who should
Live in all the keeps
Echo all the worlds
In laughs of love


For times that pass my life
I'll search for the sky
That she wonders by


Somewhere in the dreams
That the skies hold
Still the willow weeps
On roses for her bed
In laughs of love

Fortune has me well in hand,
armies 'wait my command
My gold lies in a foreign land
buried deep beneath the sand
The angels guide my ev'ry prayer,
my enemies are sick or dead
But all the victories I've led
haven't brought you to my bed

CHORUS:
You see, everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you?
Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you?

Now the purest race I've bred to be
to live in my democracy
And the highest human pedigree
awaits the first-born boy baby
And my face on ev'ry coin engraved,
the anarchists are all enslaved
My own flag is forever waved
by the grateful people I have saved

CHORUS:
You see, everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you?
Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you?

Now, no man is beyond my claim
when land is seized in the people's name
By evil men who rob and maim,
if war is hell, I'm not to blame!
Why, you can't blame me, I'm Heaven's child,
I'm the second son of Mary mild
And I'm twice removed from Oscar Wilde,
but he didn't mind, why, he just smiled

Yes, and the ocean parts when I walk through,
and the clouds dissolve and the sky turns blue
I'm held in very great value
by everyone I meet but you
'cause I've used my talents as I could,
I've done some bad, I've done some good
I did a whole lot better than they thought I would
so, c'mon and treat me like you should!

Because everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you?
Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you? <whoo, yeah!>

Everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you?
Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you?

Yeah, everybody loves me, baby, what's the matter with you?
Won'tcha tell me what did I do to offend you?

I Miss You, incubus

To see you, when I wake up is a gift I didn't think could be real.
To know that you feel the same as I do is a three-fold utopian dream.
You do something to me that I can't explain.
So would I be out of line if I said, I miss you.(?)
I see your picture, I smell your skin on the empty pillow next to mine.
You have only been gone ten days, but already I'm wastin away.
I know I'll see you again whether far or soon.
But I need you to know that I care and I miss you.

Here Without You
by three doors down

A hundred days have made me older,
since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
and I donít think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
They disappear now when Iím dreaming of your face

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight, thereís only you and me

The miles just keep rolling as the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated but I hope that this gets better as we go

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl, thereís only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
it gets hard but it wonít take away my love
And when the last one falls, when itís all said and done
it gets hard but it wonít take away my love

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl, thereís only you and me

Everybody needs a little place they can hide
Somewhere to call their own
Donít let nobody inside
Every now and then we all need to let go
For some itís the doctor
For me itís rock and roll...
For some itís a bottle
For some itís a pill
Some people wave the bible, cause itís giving them a thrill
Others point their finger if they donít like what they see
If you live in a glass house, donít be throwing rocks at me

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and itíll be alright

Check out Mr. politician in his suit and tie
But when the doors are closed there ainít nothiní he wonít try
Meanwhile Mr. medicineís treating his best friendís wife
Tipper led the war against the record industry
She said she saw the devil on her Mtv
To look into the cabinet, it takes more than a key
Just like jimmyís skeletons and his ministry

We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper to get us by
We all need a little shelter
Just a little helper ooo, and itíll be alright
Hit it now

For some itís the needle
For some itís the kill
Some people wave the bible, cause itís giving them a thrill
You can spend your money before you get your pay
With a toss of the dice, you can piss it all away

kmfdm- save me


If you don't know if you have found what you are looking for
The silver-lining always starts to fade
And what you don't know is that you don't know the truth anymore
Now you try sleeping in the bed you have made

The feeling is gone and the circle is broken
Like water under a burning bridge
A million words but nothing is spoken
A deafening silence replaced by fear

Save me
I can't find my way home
The grace i've fallen from
The only truth i've ever known

So when you tell me what you tell me
I can't take it anymore
The same old story goes around and around
You think that if you speak alittle louder than you did before
The point you make might somehow stick around

If empathy is no more than a token
I cry a river in the pouring rain
The princess still sleeps but she will be woken
Her kiss of love is killing me

Save me
I can't find my way home
The ground i'm walking on
The only friend i've ever known

Mother father
The battle I fight is for no one
No one but myself
Brother sister
The devil inside is my own now
There's no way you could understand
You don't understand

Mother father
The tears that you cry are for no one
No one but yourself
Brother sister
I travel this road on my own now
There's no way you could understand

Sono - keep control

think it's time to put an end to it
to try clean my head again
start to resuscitate my engine
try to walk back where i ran

keep control, of me
try to keep the frequency
keep control, of me
try to keep the frequency

i break up all the things behind me
going on the other way
try to find myself again slowly
to move on the other day
all the nights i kept my eyes open
all the days i tried to sleep
pushed away the troubles around me
did not see i fell too deep

keep control, of me
try to keep the frequency
keep control, of me
try to keep the frequency

something new has moved into my life
an essential missing part
takes control of my past addiction
and reanimates my heart

keep control, of me
try to keep the frequency
keep control, of me
try to keep the frequency

I can't remember if I've posted these lyrics here or not, and I'm too lazy to look, so here you go. ;)

We need to talk about where
Weíre taking this thing.
How far weíre gonna let this go.
Weíve been here before.
Itís getting late.

Itís getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
Iím afraid, (Donít Be)
Iím afraid, (Donít Be)
Iím so scared that youíll hurt me, twice.
Baby, oh baby baby baby

Listen, Iíve already been thinking about you on my mind.
Far too often for you,
To be here at this time
You see, one hands on nine and the otherís on my thigh.
Look, I already played with the idea of you
Being here in the room
And the position for the crack of dawn
And the conversation before the yawning
But aah, itís getting late.

Itís getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
But Iím afraid, (you say) donít be.
But Iím afraid, (you say) donít be.
Iím so scared that youíll hurt me twice.
Oh Baby baby baby

Howís about I let you touch the space.
That you left behind,
The day that you stop smiling
The day that the tears started falling
But now were talking, touching
Almost making sensual again
We can taste the familiar,
Cause, the family hour supports it.
Of this moment,but was led by the movements cause ah
Itís getting late.

Itís getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
But Iím afraid, (you say) donít be.
But Iím afraid, (you say) donít be.
Iím so scared that youíll hurt me twice.
Oh Baby baby baby
Oh baby twice baby baby.

I see the memories we replayed
Same space face bodies
I know thereís a method to your manliness
but ah Iím a afraid

Itís getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
But Iím afraid, you say donít be.
But Iím afraid, and you say donít be.
Iím afraid that youíll gonna hurt me baby, baby twice baby

I see the memories replayed, same space, same place
Same bodies baby I know this method to your manliness
But Iím afraid, babe
I see the memories replayed, same space, same place
Same bodies baby I know this method to your manliness
But Iím afraid, baby

Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in
So mesmerized and I'm so hypnotized
And I am vindicated

I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
I swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

So clear
Like the diamond in your ring
Cut to mirror your intentions
Oversized and overwhelmed
The shine of it has caught my eye
And rendered me so isoloated
I'm so motivated
I am certain now that

I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
I swear I knew it all along

So turn
Up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I'd be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip away
So let me slip against the current and let me slip away

I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I'm right
I swear I knew it all along

Slight hope
It dangles on a string

Everybody wants to know where Jimmy has gone
He left town, I doubt if he's coming back home

Well Tony got a job, three kids and a lovely wife
Working at the commerce bank for the rest of his life

Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to do the crazy things we used to do before
Nobody left to run with anymore

I'm gonna hit the road, adios my friend
Go someplace and start all over again

Don't know where I'm going, like a gypsy out on the road
I'll go someplace and join a traveling show

Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody wants to do the crazy things we used to do before
Nobody left to run with anymore

Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to run with anymore

I think Jimmy must have had the right idea
Packed his stuff and he got right out of here

I don't know where he's at but I'm sure that he's ok
Now I realize what Jimmy was trying to say

Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody wants to do the crazy things we used to do before
Nobody left to run with anymore

Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to run with anymore

Sorry 4 the double up, but it's 4 U're own good


I see you setting up your shot
I'm gonna git out of your range
I'll never sing your sad sorry song
Lemon Meringue

Sour to the taste and sweet to the teeth
Death by saccharination
And the criminal charge is the same

A chance to tell the crimes of the cruel
A chance to wave the flag of the fool
But the cross on your road is twisted
And reflects an imageless tool

Gotta let the taste buds blossom
Sunny side never lost em
Easy over born to be clever
So I conclude you'll never lose

Creepin like a cavity
Waiting for the time to be
Drilled up under the bridge
Who's looking for oil
Who's diggin for Diamonds
Who's diggin for Gold

Lemon Meringue pie
And I must say goodbye

Varmints and vermin writhe down the vine
Too wet to whistle, when the moon is rhine
Sound asleep when the sun does shine
Watchin the clock instead of the time

You can take away the drum
But the beat will never change
Evercharge, everlarge

Lemon Meringue pie
And I must say goodbye

Gotta let the taste buds blossom
Sunny side never lost em
Easy over born to be clever
So I conclude you'll never lose

A windless sail and a waterless sea
A rusted ship and a discontinued journey
When will you be what you need to see
because a mile in your shoes may cause swollen feet

Pipe dreams sound sweet
That's why the drilling is so deep
The pullout is pain
With a bang, yeh yeh !

Lemon Meringue pie
And I must say goodbye

Gotta let the taste buds blossom
Sunny side never lost em
Easy over born to be clever
So I conclude you'll never lose

parachute - something happens

Take your parachute and jump, you can't stay here forever
When everyone else is gone, being all alone won't seem that clever
Take your parachute and go, there's gonna have to be some danger
Take your parachute and jump, you're gonna have to take flight

If the wind don't catch you, I will, I will
If the wind's not there, I'm here

Don't look out before you, you know it's a long way down
I'll make it safer for you, your parachute won't let you down
Take your parachute and go, and maybe come back tomorrow
Take your parachute, I am, stop you ever getting sorrow

If the wind don't catch you, I will, I will
If the wind's not there, I'm here

Cause the winds might change, and the winds might blow over you
And the winds might cut you in two, unless perhaps you get a raincoat

Take your parachute and go, and wave to me as you are falling
Take your parachute and jump, you'll hear a sound, it's just me calling
It's a beautiful day for jumping, and nothing's here to keep you back
I'll make it safer for you, your parachute is on your back

If the wind don't catch you, I will, I will
If the wind's not there, I'm here

Cause the winds might change, and the winds might change

Take a parachute, I am

And jump - the wind should come and catch you
And jump - before you hit the ground
And jump - the wind should come and catch you
And jump - before you hit the ground
Jump
Take your parachute

(I can't remember who originally sang this song, but I love this version cos I really like 311)

Whenever Iím alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever Iím alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever Iím alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever Iím alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever Iím alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever Iím alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Superhero

Sleepwalking through the all-nite drugstore
Baptized in flourescent light
I found religion in the greeting card aisle
Now I know hallmark was right
And every pop song on the radio
Is suddenly speaking to me
Yeah, art may imitate life
But life imitates t.v.
'Cuz you've been gone exactly two weeks
Two weeks and three days
And let's just say that things look different now
Different in so many ways

I used to be a superhero
No one could touch me
Not even myself
You are like a phone booth
I somehow stumbled into
And now look at me
I am just like everybody else

If I was dressed in my best defenses
Would you agree to meet me for coffee
If I did my tricks with smoke and mirrors
Would you still know which one was me
If I was naked and screaming
On your front lawn
Would you turn on the light and come down
Screaming, there's the asshole
Who did this to me
Stripped me of my power
Stripped me down

I used to be a superhero
No one could touch me
Not even myself
You are like a phone booth
I somehow stumbled into
And now look at me
I am just like everybody else

Yeah you've been gone exactly two weeks
Two weeks and three days
And now I'm a different person
Different in so many ways
Tell me what did you like about me
Don't say my strength and daring
'Cuz now I think i'm at your mercy
And it's my first time for this kind of thing

I used to be a superhero
I would swoop down and save me from myself
You are like a phone booth
That I somehow stumbled into
And now look at me
I am just like everybody else
I am worse than everybody else

Marky got with Sharon
And Sharon got Sharice
She was sharing Sharon's outlook
On the topic of disease
Mikey had a facial scar
And Bobby was a racist
They were all in love with dyin'
They were doing it in Texas
Tommy played piano
Like a kid out in the rain
Then he lost his leg in Dallas
He was dancing with a train
They were all in love with dyin'
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

I don't mind the sun sometimes
The images it shows
I can taste you on my lips
And smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary
And softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look
Through other people's eyes

Some will die in hot pursuit
In fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit
While sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life
And drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

I don't mind the sun sometimes
The images it shows
I can taste you on my lips
And smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary
And softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look
Through other people's eyes

Another Mikey took a knife
While arguing in traffic
Flipper died a natural death
He caught a nasty virus
Then there was the ever-present
Football player rapist
They were all in love with dyin'
They were doing it in Texas

I don't mind the sun sometimes
The images it shows
I can taste you on my lips
And smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary
And softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look
Through other people's eyes

Polly caught a bullet
But it only hit his leg
Well it should have been a better shot
And got him in the head
They were all in love with dyin'
They were drinking from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche
Coming down the mountain

I like your smile... don't like complication
I like your style... don't like calculation
Come towards me, dear
There's something you need to hear

I said...
If you want my love
You can try my love
You can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If you want me, dear
Then just beckon near
And I will appear
I said - you can leave the light on
You can leave the lights on

I believe in love, dear... without limitation
Believe in being clear to avoid aggravation
If you want me to I will exist just for you

I said...
If you want my love
You can try my love
You can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If you want me, dear
Then just beckon near
And I will appear
I said - you can leave the lights on
You can leave the lights on

I will mesmerize with milky thighs and languid eyes...
I'll prophesize your moans and sighs.
Just look at me sacredly, religiously, hungrily...
You let your eyes say "please" - I will not leave.

I said...
If you want my love
You can try my love
You can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If you want me, dear
Then just beckon, dear
And I will appear
I said - you can leave the light on
You can leave the lights on

The greatest romance thatís ever been sold

So what do U know, U and me
Finally face 2 face
Checking each other up and down
In all of the obvious places
Was there ever a reason 4 us 2 be apart?
The air that fills up this room says, "not hardly"
So this is where U end, and U and I begin ...
(ThatĎs where U and I, U and I begin)
The greatest romance thatís ever been sold
The greatest romance thatís ever been sold

Baby, baby
Now your mind is open
2 poetry seldom heard
Ur heart has never been broken
Until Uíve heard these words:
"Your body was designed 2 respond 2 mine
In spite of your desire 2 mold me"
And in the middle of it all -
We kiss and like rain (like rain) we fall into ...

The greatest romance thatís ever been sold
The greatest romance thatís ever been sold

Oh, I know U can feel me,know that U can dance
But what do you know about the greatest romance?
Not what U think, but what U believe
What was the real reason that Adam never left Eve?
And if the truth sounds like a memory
Then U know it was meant to be (meant 2 be), meant 2 be
Leave your inhibitions behind come on, come on, and see
So this is where U end (this is where U end)
And U and I begin ... (U-hu)

The greatest romance thatís ever been sold
The greatest romance thatís ever been sold

I know U can feel, I know that U can dance
But what do you know about the greatest romance?
(The greatest romance ...)
Not what U think, but what U believe
Can U tell me the reason (reason) that Adam never left Eve?
(The greatest (greatest) romance (romance) ...)
Listen 2 me
(... thatís ever been sold)

U brought me
The grapes from the vine, yes U did
(The greatest romance ...)
Can I talk 2 U
(... thatís ever been sold)
Listen
U help me 2 remember the secrets of time
And U - U - U, U offer me your love, your love, your love
So divine
And in return, girl, in return I will surrender
Oh yeah, I will surrender, oh yes, I will

The greatest romance thatís ever been sold

Primus - Too many puppies

Too many puppies are being shot in the dark.
Too many puppies are trained not to bark,
at the sight of blood that must be spilled so that
we may maintain our oil fields.
Too many puppies
Too many puppies are taught to heal.
Too many puppies are trained to kill
on the command of men wearing money belts that buy
mistresses sleek animal pelts.
Too many puppies.

Too many puppies with guns in their hands.
Too many puppies in foreign lands,
are dressed up sharp in suits of green and
placed upon the war machine.
Too many puppies are just like me.
Too many puppies are afraid to see.
The visions of the past brought to life again,
Too many puppies, too many dead men.

it's been a while since i double posted :D here we go, with a song from my puberty

Clawfinger - Catch me

I've been standing on the edge of the roof looking down
I've been looking at the people that are gathering around
I've been here for an hour or maybe even more
just looking at the people that I've never seen before
stupid little faces are all I can see
those silly little suckers are all laughing at me
no wills cheap thrills you're puppets to the master
your only satisfaction is my lonely disaster
you learned how to creep and you learned how to crawl
but you never really learned anything at all

when I was a boy everything was just fine
I learned how to talk and how to walk in line
I had to learn the rules that build our society
but I could never understand it didn't mean shit to me
everybody always told me I was out of my mind
but I never did kiss anybodys behind
I'm a lot older and I guess I should know
but I'm standing on the roof just watching the show
standing on the edge and my step belongs to me
and I'm telling you all I won't miss what I see

one foot over theres no time to turn around
both feet are over and I'm heading for the ground
I'm flying in the air and I can feel the cool breeze
the people on the pavement have gone into a freeze
no space no time it's like walking on the moon
my heart is still beating but It won't be soon
I can hear myself scream when I hit the street
I can't feel a thing from my head to my feet
I told you I would do it and I didn't even cry
I feel more alive dead then when I was alive


You Can't Catch Me, Try To Catch Me If You Can
You Can't Catch Me, Try To Catch Me If You Can
You Can't Catch Me, Try To Catch Me If You Can

You Can't .... Catch .... Me

Here Without You
Three Doors Down


A hundred days had made me older since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lights had made me colder and I donít think I can look at this the same
But all the miles had separate
They disappeared now when Iím dreaming of your face

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight itís only you and me

The miles just keep rolling as the people either way to say hello
I hear this life is overrated but I hope it gets better as we go

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl itís only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
it gets hard but it wonít take away my love
And when the last one falls, when itís all said and done
it get hard but it wonít take away my love

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl itís only you and me

Iím here without you baby but your still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby and I dream about you all the time
Iím here without you baby but your still with me in my dreams
but tonight girl itís only you and me

I want them to know it's me
It's on my head
I'll point the finger at me
It's on my head
Give it all to you, then I'll be closer
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you
I will let you shout no more
It's on my head (It's on my head)
I'll pick you up from the floor
It's on my head (It's on my head)
I'll let you even the score
It's on my head (It's on my head)
Give it all to you, then I'll be closer
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer
Give the same to me, then I'll be closer, closer

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makiní love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Liviní alone
I think of all the friends Iíve known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobodyís home

All by myself
Donít wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Donít wanna live
All by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Donít wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself
Donít wanna live
All by myself anymore

Carolyn Dawn Johnson- You Are

The sunlight on my shoulders
The smile on my face
My secret weapon, my favorite place
The reason my heart skips a beat
The broom that sweeps me off my feet

A gentle inspiration
My weary soul's salvation
The half that makes me whole
The gravity that grounds me
The arms I want around me
Never letting go

I've lived
I've lived enough
To know what is
And what's not
You are-you are

All the love I wanna make
Every breath I wanna take
The rush that's running down my spine
The touch that takes me every time

An innocent suduction
Oh I can't get enough and
I can't help but let it show
I lose all my composure
I'm totally exposed and
The reason I let go
Is....

I've lived
I've lived enough
I know what is
And what's not
You are-you are

My every hope
My every dream
You are my everything

I've lived yeah
I've lived enough
I know what is
And what's not
You are-you are-you are

The sunlight on my shoulders
The smile on my face
My secret weapon
My favorite place

Now The World - AFI

Summer, I painted a scene that lit the stars for me.
Said "I can erase it for you dear."
That summer created those words that came to life in three.
They were denied by you.
Summer I laid down below a glitter adorned night and silently sparkled my own way.
Summer I laid down by you and shared my frail light. You gave the dark to me.

I looked inside to find the one I sent away.
(I wanted this excoriation.)
I nearly froze when I stepped inside
(I thrive on this self mutilation.)
to find the flowers turned to gray.
I closed my eyes and kissed them one last time.

Summer, a morning so pale, alone when they found me.
As I remained sleeping I heard them say "This summer created a boy of abject misery."
He was designed by you.

I looked inside to find the one I sent away.
(I wanted this excoriation.)
I nearly froze when I stepped inside
(I thrive on this self mutilation.)
to find the flowers turned to gray.
I closed my eyes and kissed them one last time.

So like a lost child I will hide, and like a lost lie I will find a way to return to the one who made me.
Cover your eyes and we'll die together.
Will you cry for me? Will you cry for me, or will you cry with me?
I've been a lonely one.
I've had this whole world drained from me.
Am I the only one?
I've had this world drained from me.

Summer, I painted a scene that lit the stars for me. Said "I can erase it for you dear."

They gave me a life thatís not so easy to live
And then they sent me on my way
I left my loving, forgot my dreams
I lost them along the way
Those little things you say
When words mean so much
You never back down
And they all shy away
You always listen to me

And what do I care to get me through these sleepless nights
And what do I have to hold when no oneís there to hold me tight
And what do I see the only thing that gets me through this is I feel and I feel you

And this ainít no bitterness
Then Iíd rose just the same
Got this road short and can be long
Another endless day, another seven hundred miles thatíll take me further from my home

Those little things you say
When words mean so much
You never back down
And they all shy away
You always listen to me

And what do I care to get me through these sleepless nights
And what do I have to hold when no oneís there to hold me tight
And what do I see the only thing that gets me through this is I feel and I feel you

I know what youíre going through now
Believe me I live this

And what do I care to get me through these sleepless nights
And what do I have to hold when no oneís there to hold me tight
And what do I see the only thing that gets me through this is I feel and I feel you

Franz Ferdinand - Dark of the Matinee

You take your white finger
Slide the nail under the top and bottom buttons of my blazer
Relax the fraying wool, slacken ties
And I'm not to look at you in the shoe, but the eyes

I time every journey to bump into you, accidentally
I charm you and tell you of the boys I hate
All the girls I hate
The clothes I hate
All the words I hate
How I'll never be anything I hate
You smile, mention something that you like
How you'd have a happy life if you did the things you like

So I'm on BBC2 now, telling Terry Wogan how I made it
What I made is unclear, but his deference is and his laughter is
My words and smile are so easy now
Yes, It's easy now

So find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinee
The dark of the matinee is mine

Matthew Good Band - Everything Is Automatic

Miss my head, miss my heart, miss my lungs
Be what you want to be
Watch what you want to see
Killed for fun
Down a hole, up a rope
Down some pills, up some hope
This karma machine only takes quarters
New age soldier, new age soldier

Everybody's all right
Everything is automatic
And everybody's all right
Everything is skin deep

Everybody's all right
And everything is automatic
Everybody's all right
And everything is skin deep, me

Say hey, say hey, say how ya doing
Say hey, say hey, say how ya doing

I miss my lazy boy
I miss my TV
I miss myself
Do you miss your lazy boy
Do you miss your TV
Do you miss yourself

Everybody's all right
Everything is automatic
Everybody's all right
Everything is skin deep

It's always what I wanted
It's always what I

Killed for fun
It's fucking funny don't you think
One day you'll decompose
And you wake up and those
Those birds are singing
Those birds are singing

It's always what I wanted
It's always what I

Everything is skin deep



Matthew Good Band - Strangest One of All

Hate deliver me
Back into the shiny land
Of opportunity
Where I have the name I am
Melted down
No smile action figure man
Pop community
Cooler than cooler than

So bad I kind of of felt I was the same
So glad you heard
The strangest one of all
The strangest one of

High fidelity
Lovers in a low-fi land
Care facility
Where they own the name I am
Melted down
She pulls the strings I move and wham
Barely new and we're cooler than, cooler than

So bad
I kind of felt I was to blame
So glad you heard
The strangest one of all

When will you see
These things
In another way
Any other way
And in another way

So bad I kind of felt I was to blame
So glad you heard
So bad I kind of felt I was the same
So glad you heard

The strangest one of all

Cooler than, cooler than
Gonna be cooler than, cooler than
Cooler than, cooler than
The strangest one of all

Nine inch nails: The Great Beyond.

Staring at the sea,
will she come?
Is there hope for me
after all is said and done.

Anything at any price,
all of this for you.
All the spoils of a wasted life,
all of this for you.

All the World has closed her eyes
tired faith all worn and thin,
For all we could have done and
All that could have been...

Ocean pulls me close, and whispers in my ear.
The destiny I've chose all becoming clear
The currents have their say,the time is drawing near,
Washes me away,makes me disappear,and I
descend from grace,and I'm so numb and cold.
I will take my place in the Great Beyond...

I can still feel you even so far away-I can still feel you even so far away
I can still feel you..... ......even so far away...

I heard her do this live with only the piano accompanying her, this morning on the radio. She so totally moved me, I have been thinking all day of finding this song and listening to it again, I believe the album isnt out till October. I'm still trying to find someplace to hear it, I still havent heard it recorded at all, but I did find the lyrics.

White Houses
Crashed on the floor when I moved in
This little bunk alone with some strange new friends
Stay up too late, and I'm too thin
We promise each other it's til the end
Now we're spinning empty bottles
It's the five of us
With pretty eyed boys girls die to trust
I can't resist the day
No, I can't resist the day

Jenny screams out and it's no pose
'Cause when she dances she goes and goes
beer through the nose on an inside joke
And I'm so excited, I haven't spoken
And she's so pretty, and she's so sure
Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
The summer's all in bloom
The summer is ending soon

It's alright and it's nice not to be so alone
But I hold on to your secrets in white houses

Maybe I'm a little bit over my head
I come undone at the things he said
And he's so funny in his bright red shirt
We were all in love and we all got hurt
I sneak into his car's black leather seat
The smell of gasoline in the summer heat
Boy, we're going way too fast
It's all too sweet to last

It's alright
And I put myself in his hands
But I hold on to your secrets in white houses
Love, or something ignites in my veins
And I pray it never fades in white houses

My first time, hard to explain
Rush of blood, oh, and a little bit of pain
On a cloudy day, it's more common than you think
He's my first mistake

Maybe you were all faster than me
We gave each other up so easily
These silly little wounds will never mend
I feel so far from where I've been
So I go, and I will not be back here again
I'm gone as the day is fading on white houses
I lie, put my injuries all in the dust
In my heart is the five of us
In white houses

And you, maybe you'll remember me
What I gave is yours to keep
In white houses
In white houses
In white houses

k so I found the video for that song here: http://launch.yahoo.com/musicvideos/lists/byalpha.asp?l=A&p=2

you have to have a yahoo account to access it, so I had to make up one, and altho it took me all night to come up with something, I finally came up with 'LadyAmbiguity' which I actually think is pretty cool. :D

so anyway, check it out, and tell me why the melody kind of reminds me of Tori Amos' Silent All These Years. :confused:

oh, and by the way, it sounds way better with just Vanessa's voice and piano accompanyment. :rolleyes:

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
Still my heart this moment
Or it might burst
Could we stay right here
Until the end of time until the earth stops turning
Wanna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

All this time I've loved you
And never known your face
All this time I've missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace
Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs
Wanna stay right here
Until the end of time
'Til the earth stops turning
Gonna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

The one I've waited for

All I've known
All I've done
All I've felt was leading to this
All I've known
All I've done
All I've felt was leading to this
Wanna stay right here
'Til the end of time 'till the earth stops turning
I'm gonna love you till the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for
The one I've waited for
The one I've waited for

Wanna stay right here
'Til the end of time 'till the earth stops turning
I'm gonna love you till the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for
The one I've waited for
The one I've waited for

I like your pants around your feet
I like the dirt thatís on your knees
And I like the way you still say please
While youíre looking up at me
Youíre like my favourite damn disease

And I love the places that we go
And I love the people that you know
And I love the way you canít say no
Too many long lines in a row
I love the powder on your nose

And now I know who you are
It wasnít that hard
Just to figure you out
And now I know who you are
It wasnít that hard
Just to figure you out

I like the freckles on your chest
And I like the way you like me best
And I like the way youíre not impressed,
While you put me to the test
I like the white stains on your dress

And I love the way you pass the check
And I love the good times that you wreck
And I love your lack of self respect
While youíre passed out on the deck
I love my hands around your neck

And now I know who you are
It wasnít that hard
Just to figure you out
And now I know who you are
It wasnít that hard
Just to figure you out

I love your pants around your feet
And I love the dirt thatís on your knees
And I like the way you still say please
While youíre looking up at me
Youíre like my favourite damn disease

And I hate the places that we go
And I hate the people that you know
And I hate the way you canít say no
Too many long lines in a row
I hate the powder on your nose

And now I know who you are
It wasnít that hard
Just to figure you out
And now I know who you are
It wasnít that hard
Just to figure you out

Ruby - Heidi


You'd put me in the ground.
Your crime is always against me
Do you fear what I could be
I'm bigger than you'll ever be
You'd put me in the ground
Can't throw me away
You'd put me in the ground
Can't throw me away
You'd put me in the ground
I am what I must,
Would you bite me till I'm dust.
You're terrified
You're terrified of me
Question - Why would you kill me?
Answer - 'Cos I'd cut down your king tree
Question - Why do I frighten you ? Why do I frighten you ?
'Cos I'd cut down your king tree
You'd put me in the ground
Can't throw me away
You'd put me in the ground
Can't throw me away
You'd put me in the ground
I can speak so softly because I have so much power
Question
I can speak so softly because I have so much power
Question
I can speak so softly
Answer
Because I have so much power
I can speak so softly because I have so much power

I wrote this short lulluby while staring at the stars one night:


Where dreams dream and you can fly
There's a magical place tonight
And flower sing, and fairies dance
And everyone has a second chance
Sleep, my darling
Dream of me
Where I may dance, and you can feel
My loving arms, around you here
Sleep, my darling sleep
And always dream of me

i really like these two songs by tanzwut... problem is i don't really know for sure what they are saying. i have seen two translations and they were very different from each other.... so i think i like the lyrics of these songs. ;)

Labyrinth
Am Eingang steh'n wir - angekommen
dieses soll Dein Anfang sein
auserwšhlt und auserkoren
hineingeborn lass ich Dich jetzt allein

Nun versuchst Du Deinen Weg zu erkennen
zwischen zahllosen RŲhren, Schšchten und Gšngen
irrst Du umher, dann siehst Du das Licht So sehr Du auch rennst,
Du erreichst es nicht

Im Labyrinth der Sinne
in den Wirren Deiner Seele bist Du ganz allein
im Labyrinth der Sinne
nur wer beflŁgelt wird sich selbst des Rštsels LŲsung sein

Nur wer das Ziel kennt, erahnt einen Weg
und der es erfand, hšlt Dein Schicksal in der Hand
doch sollte es sich selbst erfinden, stšndig wachsen, vorwšrts winden
muŖ es unendlich sein und Du fŁr Deine Ewigkeit allein

Irgendwer hat am Rad der Zeit gedreht
und wie Du Dich auch hetzt, Du bist immer zu spšt
die Sinne geschšrft und von Verzweiflung geplagt
ein Verwirrspiel der Sinne, hast Dich selbst gejagt

Im Labyrinth der Sinne
in den Wirren Deiner Seele bist Du ganz allein
im Labyrinth der Sinne
nur wer beflŁgelt wird sich selbst des Rštsels LŲsung sein

----------

Ikarus
Flieg steig auf reite den Wind
scheue Dich nicht wenn der Flug beginnt
Ikarus komm heb mit uns ab
tršum den Traum den die Sonne Dir nahm

Hoch hinaus benommen vom Ziel
Du liebtest den Sturm das gefšhrliche Spiel
halt nicht an zieh Deine Bahn
die Sehnsucht verbrennt den phantastischen Wahn.

Wie ein Vogel seine FlŁgel
breit' ich meine Arme aus
lasse los von allen Dingen
flieg mit mir wenn Du vertraust
nichtig scheint was wichtig war
flieg mit mir schau nicht zurŁck
gleite sacht durch warme LŁfte
was uns bleibt ist nur ein StŁck

Uferlos fŁhl ich mich Sonne und Wind
in unserm Gesicht
grenzenlos der Himmel sich gibt
nichtig und klein was unter uns liegt

Hoch hinaus benommen vom Ziel
Du liebtest den Sturm das gefšhrliche Spiel
halt nicht an zieh Deine Bahn
die Sehnsucht verbrennt den phantastischen Wahn.

Wie ein Vogel seine FlŁgel
breit' ich meine Arme aus
lasse los von allen Dingen
flieg mit mir wenn Du vertraust
nichtig scheint was wichtig war
flieg mit mir schau nicht zurŁck
gleite sacht durch warme LŁfte
was uns bleibt ist nur ein StŁck

Theres some very naughty words in this one. Fair warning.

The Sex Pistols-My Way.

And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
You cunt, I'm not a queer
I'll state my case of which I'm certain
I've lived a life thats full
Down each and every highway
And yet, much more than this
I did it my way.
Regrets, I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
But dig, what I have to do
I'll see it through with no devotion
Of that take care and just
Be careful along the highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way.
There were times,
I'm sure you knew
When there was nothing
Fucking else to do,
But through it all
When there was doubt
I shot it up or kicked it out.
I fought the just as before
And did it My Way.
Knocked out in bed last night
I've had my fill, my share of looting
And now the tears subside
I find it all so amusing.
To think, I killed a cat
And may I say, oh no, not their way
But no, oh no not me
I did it My Way!
For what is a brat
What has he got,
When he finds out that he cannot
Say the things he truly thinks
But only the words,
Not what he feels.
The record shows
I've got no clothes
And did it MMY WAAYY!! :cool:

just listened to this song again last night after not hearing it for a really long time. totally good song. excellent lyrics. :)

Kyoto Now - Bad Religion


Itís a matter of prescience -no, not the science fiction kind
Itís all about ignorance, and greed, and miracles for the blind
The media parading, disjointed politics
Founded on petrochemical plunder, and weíre itís hostages

If you stand to reason youíre in the game
The rules might be elusive but our pieces are the same
And you know if one goes down we all go down as well
The balance is precarious as anyone can tell
This worldís going to hell

Donít allow this mythologic hopeful monster to exact itís price
Kyoto now!
We canít do nothing and think someone else will make it right

You might not think it matters now but what if you are wrong
You might not think thereís any wisdom in a fucked up punk rock song
But the way it is cannot persist for long
A brutal sun is rising on our sick horizon

Itís in the way we live our lives
Exactly like the double edge of a cold familiar knife
And supremacy weighs heavy on the day
Itís never really what you own but what you threw away
And how much did you pay?

Donít allow this mythologic hopeful monster to exact itís price
Kyoto now!
We canít do nothing and think someone else will make it right
In your dreams
you saw a steady state a bounty for eternity
Silent screams
But now the wisdom that sustains us is in full retreat
Donít allow
this mythologic hopeful monster isnít worth the risk
Kyoto now!
We canít have vision for the future if it canít be fixed
Alien
We need a fresh and new religion to run our lives
Hand in hand
The arid torpor of inaction will be our demise
Oh, kyoto now!

more politically charged lyrics. from a canadian artist this time.

Alert Status Red - Matthew Good

In the wilderness uncountable voices
earplugs for the birds and the animals
and blinders for your beast of burden,
the will for learning
these books were made for burning
in the wilderness
beneath the ancient sand lies crushed
and tanned those sapphire girls
may we never forget you

Alert status red
but the sun comes up instead
In the wilderness the only
place to find freedom is in the dictionary
under 'F'
men in holes, men in caves,
men in chains I ask but the store clerk needn't check
man I forget which came first
the bad idea or me befallen by it?
not giving a sh** may we never forget you

Alert status red
but the sun comes up instead
In the wilderness
senile live the zealous
lost to the treasures that compel us
muted down like patriots amiss
you know I'm jealous of how you can just turn them off
those bad ideas that feel so soft
may they never forget you

Tori Amos - Happy Phantom

And if I die today I'll be the happy phantom
And I'll go chassin' the nuns out in the yard
And I'll run naked through the streets without my mask on
And I will never need umbrellas in the rain
I'll wake up in strawberry fields every day
And the atrocities of school I can forgive
The happy phantom has no right to bitch
oo who
The time is getting closer
oo who
Time to be a ghost
oo who
Every day we're getting closer
The sun is geting dim
Will we pay for who we been

So if I die today I'll be the happy phantom
And I'll go wearin' my naughties like a jewel
They'll be my ticket to the universal opera
There's Judy Garland taking Buddha by the hand
And then these seven little men get up to dance
They say Confucius does his crossword with a pen
I'm still the angel to a girl who hates to sin

oo who
The time is getting closer
oo who
Time to be a ghost
oo who
Every day we're getting closer
The sun is geting dim
Will we pay for who we been

Or will I see you dear and wish I could come back
You found a girl that you could truly love again
Will you still call for me when she falls asleep
Or do we soond forget the things we cannot see

oo who
The time is getting closer
oo who
Time to be a ghost
oo who
Every day we're getting closer
The sun is geting dim
Will we pay for who we been

This is one of my favourite songs. Even though I don't really understand it...

the Mars Volta-Roulette dares (this is the haunt)

Transient jet lag ecto mimed bison
this is the haunt of Roulette dares
Ruse of metacarpi
Caveat emptor...to all that enter here
Open wrist talks back again
In the wounds of its skin
They'll pinprick the witness
In ritual contrition
The am trinity fell upon asphyxia derailed
In the rattles of...
Made its way through the tracks
of a snail slouching whisper
a half mass commute through umbilical blisters
Spector will lurk
radar has gathered
Midnight neuces from box-car cadavers
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Its because this is
Cranial bleeding
Leeches train the living
cursed are they who speak its name
Ruse of metacarpi
caveat emptor to all that enter here
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Rattleing the laughter
Hinges splintering the inside
Bludgeoned to a saddle
rang the cloister bell inside
inside
inside
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
Exoskeletal junction at the railroad delayed
its because this is

I got to see this band live.
Maybe that'll sink in a few years from now and I'll have a massive heart attack. Until then...

RADIOHEAD-2+2=5 ( the lukewarm )

Are you such a dreamer
To put the world to rights?
I'll stay home forever
Where two and two always
Makes up five.

I'll lay down the tracks
Sandbag and hide
January has April's showers
And two and two always
makes up five

It's the Devil's way now
There is no way out.
You can scream and you can shout.
It is too late now.
Because

You have not been paying attention.

I try to sing along but
I get it all wrong
eezeeepeezeeeezeeeepeeezee
Not.
I swat em like flies but
Like flies the burgers
Keep coming back
Cozimnot.
Maybe not.
"All Hail To The Thief"
But I'm not!
"Don't question my authority
Or put me in the docks"
CozImnot!!
Go and tell the king
That the sky is falling in
When it's not
Maybe not.

Pink Floyd - Time

Ticking away the moments that make up the dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find that ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or a half page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in a quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought i'd something more to say

Pearl Jam - Once

I admit it...whatís to say
Iíll relive it...without pain
Backstreet lover on the side of the road
I got a bomb in my temple that is gonna explode
I got a sixteen gauge buried under my clothes, I play...
Once upon a time I could control myself
Once upon a time I could lose myself

Try and mimic whatís insane
I am in it...where do I stand?
Indian summer and I hate the heat
I got a backstreet lover on the passenger seat
I got my hand in my pocket, so determined, discreet...i pray...
Once upon a time I could control myself
Once upon a time I could lose myself

You think I got my eyes closed
But Iím lookiní at you the whole fuckiní time...

Once upon a time I could control myself,
Once upon a time I could lose myself,
Once upon a time I could love myself,
Once upon a time I could love you

SIA - Drink to get drunk

I eat food to satisfy my hunger
I drink water to quench my thirst
I use my mouth and air to blow balloon up
I prick with pin to watch it burst
To make noise I use my breathe
To unlock doors I use a key
When I'm looking for something I use my eyes
I use booze to unlock me


I wear shoes so I can run
As to avoid the broken glass
I wear the pants because they suit me
And to discourage the pinchin' of ass
I'll tell a joke to make you laugh
I'll close the door to have a cry
They say that change and pain is a positive thing
Have I changed since you died?



Don't ask my why I smoke, but I drink to get drunk
Don't ask my why I smoke, I don't know, but I drink to get drunk
Don't ask my why I smoke, but I drink to get drunk
Don't ask my why I smoke, I don't know, but I drink to get drunk

Fire- Jimi Hendrix

Alright,
now listen, baby

You don't care for me
I don'-a care about that
Gotta new fool, ha!
I like it like that

I have only one burning desire
Let me stand next to your fire
Let me stand next to your fire [Repeat 4 times]

Listen here, baby
and stop acting so crazy
You say your mum ain't home,
it ain't my concern,
Just play with me and you won't get burned

I have only one itching desire
Let me stand next to your fire
Let me stand next to your fire [Repeat 4 times]

Oh! Move over, Rover
and let Jimi take over
Yeah, you know what I'm talking 'bout
Yeah, get on with it, baby
That's what I'm talking 'bout
Now dig this!
Ha!
Now listen, baby

You try to gimme your money
you better save it, babe
Save it for your rainy day

I have only one burning desire
Let me stand next to your fire
Let me stand next to your fire

ah yes... memories... of what i dont remember, must have blocked them out. but everytime i hear it i want to cry.... :cry: ironic maybe?

Don't Cry~ Guns N Roses

Talk to me softly
There's something in your eyes
Don't hang your head in sorrow
And please don't cry
I know how you feel inside I've
I've been there before
Somethin's changin' inside you
And don't you know

Don't you cry tonight
I still love you baby
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

Give me a whisper
And give me a sigh
Give me a kiss before you
tell me goodbye
Don't you take it so hard now
And please don't take it so bad
I'll still be thinkin' of you
And the times we had...baby

And don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
Don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry tonight

And please remember that I never lied
And please remember
how I felt inside now honey
You gotta make it your own way
But you'll be alright now sugar
You'll feel better tomorrow
Come the morning light now baby

And don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
An don't you cry tonight
There's a heaven above you baby
And don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry tonight
Baby maybe someday
Don't you cry
Don't you ever cry
Don't you cry
Tonight

Between a laugh and a tear--Mellencamp

When paradise is no longer fit for you to live in
And your adolescent dreams are gone
Through the days you feel a little used up
And you don't know where your energy's gone wrong
It's just your soul feelin' a little downhearted
Sometimes life is too ridiculous to live
You count your friends all on one finger
I know it sounds crazy, just the way that we live

Between a laugh and a tear
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
Between a laugh and a tear
And that's as good as it can get for us
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'

When this cardboard town can no longer amuse you
You see through everything and nothin' seems worthwhile
And hypocrite used to be such a big word to you
And it don't seem to mean anything to you now
Just try to live each and every precious moment
Don't be discouraged by the future, forget the past
That's old advise but it'll be good to you
I know there's a balance, see it when I swing past

Between a laugh and a tear
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
Between a laugh and a tear
And that's as good as it can get for us
And there ain't no reason to stop tryin'

When paradise can no longer amuse you

Donít wanna be an American idiot.

And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mindfuck America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isnít meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
Weíre not the ones whoíre meant to follow.
Convincing them to like you.

Well maybe Iím the fuckhead America.
Iím not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody queue the propaganda.
And sing along in the age of paranoia.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isnít meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
Weíre not the ones whoíre meant to follow.
Convincing them to like you.

Donít wanna be an American idiot.
One want a nation controlled by the media.
Information nation of hysteria.
Itís calling out to idiot America.

Sweet New Orleans - Neil Diamond

Where it began, I can't begin to know when
But then I know it's growing strong
Oh, wasn't the spring, whooo
And spring became the summer
Who'd believe you'd come along

Hands, touching hands, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet New Orleans
Good times never seem so good
I've been inclined to believe it never would

And now I, I look at the night, whooo
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two, oh
And when I hurt
Hurting runs off my shoulder
How can I hurt when holding you

Oh, one, touching one, reaching out
Touching me, touching you
Oh, sweet New Orleans
Good times never seem so good
Oh I've been inclined to believe it never would

Ohhh, sweet New Orleans, good times never seem so good

In A Little While

Here's to the good life or so they say
All those parties and games that all those people play
They tell me this is the place to be
All these beautiful people and nothin' to see

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here
Something is wrong here, I don't belong here
Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town
And I've lost what I found, it'll all turn around

[CHORUS]

In a little while I'll be thinkin' about you
In a little while I'll still be here without you
You never gave me a reason to doubt you
In a little while I'll be thinkin' about you baby...I'll be thinkin' about you baby

On the other side of a coin
There's a face there's a memory somewhere that I can't erase
And there's a place that I find someday
But sometimes I feel like it's slippin' away

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here
Something is wrong here, I don't belong here
Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town
And I've lost what I found, it'll all turn around

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Some things are lost some left behind
Some things are better left for someone else to find
Maybe in time I can finally see
I just wonder, wonder if you think about me

Sometimes I feel like something is gone here
Something is wrong here, I don't belong here
Sometimes I feel like a stranger in town
And I've lost what I found, it'll all turn around

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Die Flut (Wolfsheim w/ Joachim Witt)

Wenn ich in mir keine Ruhe fŁhl
Bitterkeit mein dunkles Herz umspŁlt
Ich nur warte auf den nšchsten Tag, der mir erwacht

Wenn Finsternis den klaren Blick verhŁllt
Kein Sinn mehr eine Sehnsucht stillt
Ruf ich mir herbei den einen Traum, der sich niemals erfŁllt

Und du rufst in die Nacht
Und du flehst um Wundermacht
Um 'ne bessere Welt zu leben
Doch es wird keine andere geben

Wann kommt die Flut - Łber mich
Wann kommt die Flut - die mich berŁhrt
Wann kommt die Flut - die mich mit fort nimmt
In ein anderes grosses Leben - irgendwo

All die Zeit, so schnell vorŁber zieht
Jede Spur von mir wie Staub zerfliegt
Endlos weit getrieben, von unsichtbarer Hand

Gibt es dort am kalten Firnament
Nicht auch den Stern, der nur fŁr mich verbrennt
Ein dumpfes Leuchten wie ein Feuer in der Nacht
Das nie vergeht

Und du siehst zum Himmel auf
Fluchst auf den sturen Zeitenlauf
Machst dir 'ne Welt aus Trug und Schein
Doch es wird keine andere sein

Wann kommt die Flut - Łber mich
Wann kommt die Flut - die mich berŁhrt
Wann kommt die Flut - die mich mit fort nimmt
In ein anderes grosses Leben - irgendwo


i like this song, which is a bit strange because i don't really like wolfsheim or witt. i did find a translation somewhere, but i lost the link. if i find it i'll post it. ... and i realized that i didn't post a link for translations of the tanzwut songs i posted :eek: so here's ikarus and labyrinth (http://www.tanzwut.nl/engels/indexengels.html). hmm... seems i can't link to the exact page. :eyebrow: so you must work! click on 'song translations' then the pic under 'labyrinth der sinne.' then the little uk flag next to ikarus or labyrinth. ;)

Slipknot
The Opium of the People

Watch those idiosyncrasies
Watch all the idiots fall on me
Getting out of ways to get outta the way
Take another shot just to stay the same
But I need some balance - Back it off
Fill your lungs 'til it makes you cough
Tell me everything's gonna be alright
'Cause I don't think I'll make it through tonight

The only way - Is all the way

Oh - my - God
It's judgement day and I'm not prepared
Everybody out there's running scared
So - Take a little bit off the top
I don't care, just make it stop

I won't give another soul... to you
I won't give another life... to you
You have to stop
Stop!

Do one thing and say something cryptic
But the styles always clash
One thing I know for sure
The hypothetical won't work anymore
One wrong move and they will pound!
My nails are tight inside my wrists
This sacrament is sacrilege and sentimental
Deity experimental - Faith is accidental

I won't give another soul... to you
I won't give another life... to you
I won't give another thought... to you
I won't give anymore of my hope... to you[I]

Live ~ Lightning Crashes

Lightning crashes, a new mother cries
her placenta falls to the floor
The angel opens her eyes
the confusion sets in
before the doctor can even close the door
Lightning Crashes, an old mother dies
her intentions fall to the floor
the angel closes her eyes
the confusion that was hers,
belongs now, to the baby down the hall

Oh now feel it comin back again
like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
forces pullin' from the center of the Earth again
I can feel it

Lightning Crashes, a new mother cries
this moment she's been waiting for
The angels open her eyes
Pale blue colored iris, presents the sun
and puts the glory out to hide,hide


Oh now feel it comin back again
like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
forces pullin' from the center of the Earth again
I can feel it



~sigh~ tis soo sad :cry:

this is the one song of eMOTIVe that has been tearing me up. it's just musically gorgeous and has so much fire and passion in it. fairly simple lyrically, but powerful nonetheless. reading the lyrics doesn't do it justice. this song rocks! :love: :love: :love:

Passive - A Perfect Circle


Dead as dead can be, the doctor tells me
But I just can't believe him,
ever the optimistic one
I'm sure of your abilities
and become my perfect enemy

Wake up and face me
Don't play dead cos maybe
Someday I'll walk away saying
You disappoint me,
maybe you're better off this way

Leaning over you here cold and catatonic,
I catch a brief reflection of
what you could and might have been
It's your right and your ability
to become my perfect enemy

Wake up and face me
Don't play dead 'cause maybe
Someday I'll walk away saying
You disappoint me,
maybe you're better off this way

Maybe you're better off this way
You're better off this
Maybe you're better off

Wake up
(why can't you)
and face me
(come on now),
Don't play dead
(don't play dead)
'cause maybe
(because maybe)
Someday I'll walk away saying
You fucking disappoint me,
maybe you're better off this way

Go ahead and play dead
(don't)
I know that you can hear this
(go)
Go ahead and play dead
(go)
Why can't you turn and face me
(wake up)
You fucking disappoint me

Passive-aggressive bullshit...

Shotgun alleys with lightning flowers
under the eyes of fallen statues
dried blood they've never seen

pain is sharper when I suspect
that true love runs looking for us
like a lion in our dreams

(chorus)
the strawberry road
where the dream fades
is down between our longing and desire
the strawberry road
where our hearts break
into love

you censor longing
and organize beauty
because you're afraid
you want it more than
oxy-gen
or light

you can't get there
with your morals
or without love
lie down with me
the rules arent always right

(chorus)
the strawberry road
where the dream fades
is down between our longing and desire
the strawberry road
where our hearts break
into love

call it romance
or nostalgia
the hunger behind
our memories
we've buried it in code

the things we've wanted
when we get them
are never enough
never what they seem
but they lead us to the road

(chorus)
the strawberry road
where the dream fades
is down between our longing and desire
the strawberry road
where our hearts break
into love

Faint ~ Linkin Park :ninja:


I am a little bit of loneliness a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I canít help the fact that everyone can see these scars
I am what I want you to want what I want you to feel
But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you, to just believe this is real
So I let go, watching you, turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not
But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I got

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I am a little bit insecure a little unconfident
Cause you don't understand I do what I can but sometimes I don't make sense
I am what you never wanna say but I've never had a doubt
It's like no matter what I do I can't convince you for once just to hear me out
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not
But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I've got

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

No
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me, like it or not
Right now
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me, like it or not
Right now

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

Getaway Car
The Jenkins

Remembering when we first met
We had that adventure in our eyes
But something got away I guess
In the everyday of our lives

And I dont know what
keeps us here
Lets disappear
and start all over again

We can run away
baby come as you are
You can look at my heart
as your getaway car
we can drive all night
it will be alright
love can take us so far
in your get away car

all we need is the open road
and more fuel for the fire inside us
steer us on to lands unknown
and we can leave this world behind

and all I know is you and me
thats all we'll need to
start all over again

We can run away
baby come as you are
You can look at my heart
as your getaway car
we can drive all night
it will be alright
love can take us so far
in your get away car

Turn up the radio
dont look back again
let me put the pedal down
get us out of this town
dont be afraid to run

We can run away
baby come as you are
You can look at my heart
as your getaway car
we can drive all night
it will be alright
love can take us so far
in your get away car

We can run away, baby
You can look at my heart
as your get away car
all we need is the open road
come on come on baby lets go now now hey
use my heart as your get away car.

This song kind suits my mood at the moment....

Frou Frou-Let Go

Drink up baby down
Are you in or are you out?
Leave your things behind
'Cause it's all going off without you
Excuse me too busy you're writing a tragedy
These mess-ups
You bubble-wrap
When you've no idea what you're like

So, let go
Jump in
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So, let go
Just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown

It gains the more it gives
And then advances with the form
So, honey, back for more
Can't you see that all the stuff's essential?
Such boundless pleasure
We've no time for later
Now you can wait
You roll your eyes
We've twenty seconds to comply

So, let go
Jump in
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It's al right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So, let go
Just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here
It's all right
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown

yaaaaaaaaay frou frou! Now I know a wopping 2 songs by them!!!

Time :: Culture Club



Don't put your head on my shoulder
Sink me in a river of tears
This could be the best place yet
But you must overcome your fears

(Chorus)
Ooh, in time
It could have been so much more
The time is precious I know
In time
It could have been so much more
The time has nothing to show

Because
Time won't give me time
And time makes lovers feel
Like they've got something real
But you and me
We know we've got
Nothin' but time
And time won't give me time
Won't give me time
(Time, time, time)

Don't make me feel any colder
Time is like a clock in my heart
Touch we, touch was the
heat too much
I felt I
Lost you from the start

(Chorus)
Ooh, in time
It could have been so much more
The time is precious I know
In time
It could have been so much more
The time has nothing to show

Because
Time won't give me time
And time makes lovers feel
Like they've got something real
But you and me
We know we've got
Nothin' but time
And time won't give me time ...

OK. I'm going to make an admission. I'm a crier. I cry when watching Disney movies, Little House on the Prairie, Extreme Home Makeover. You name it. Anyway. Pocahontas just went off and once again I got teary when this song came on. So...

Colors of the Wind

You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know ev'ry rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned ?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
In a cirle, in a hoop that never ends

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or let the eagle tell you there he's been
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind ?

How high does the sycamore grow ?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know

And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper-skinned
We just sing with all the voices of the mountain
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the earth and still
All you'll own is earth until
You can paint with all colors of the wind

Missing

Please, please forgive me,
But I wonít be home again.
Maybe someday youíll have woke up,
And, barely conscious, youíll say to no one:
Isnít something missing?

You wonít cry for my absence, I know -
You forgot me long ago.
Am I that unimportant...?
Am I so insignificant...?
Isnít something missing?
Isnít someone missing me?

[chorus]
Even though Iíd be sacrificed,
You wonít try for me, not now.
Though Iíd die to know you love me,
Iím all alone.
Isnít someone missing me?

Please, please forgive me,
But I wonít be home again.
I know what you do to yourself,
Shudder deep and cry out:
Isnít something missing?
Isnít someone missing me?

[chorus]

And if I bleed, Iíll bleed,
Knowing you donít care.
And if I sleep just to dream of you
And wake without you there,
Isnít something missing?
Isnít something...

[chorus]

Harry Chapin - Taxi

It was raining hard in 'Frisco,
I needed one more fare to make my night.
A lady up ahead waved to flag me down,
She got in at the light.

Oh, where you going to, my lady blue,
It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain.
She just looked out the window, and said
"Sixteen Parkside Lane".

Something about her was familiar
I could swear I'd seen her face before,
But she said, "I'm sure you're mistaken"
And she didn't say anything more.

It took a while, but she looked in the mirror,
And she glanced at the license for my name.
A smile seemed to come to her slowly,
It was a sad smile, just the same.
And she said, "How are you Harry?"
I said, "How are you Sue?
Through the too many miles
and the too little smiles
I still remember you."

It was somewhere in a fairy tale,
I used to take her home in my car.
We learned about love in the back of the Dodge,
The lesson hadn't gone too far.
You see, she was gonna be an actress,
And I was gonna learn to fly.
She took off to find the footlights,
And I took off to find the sky.

Oh, I've got something inside me,
To drive a princess blind.
There's a wild man, wizard,
He's hiding in me, illuminating my mind.
Oh, I've got something inside me,
Not what my life's about,
Cause I've been letting my outside tide me,
Over 'till my time, runs out.

Baby's so high that she's skying,
Yes she's flying, afraid to fall.
I'll tell you why baby's crying,
Cause she's dying, aren't we all.

There was not much more for us to talk about,
Whatever we had once was gone.
So I turned my cab into the driveway,
Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns.
And she said we must get together,
But I knew it'd never be arranged.
And she handed me twenty dollars,
For a two fifty fare, she said
"Harry, keep the change."
Well another man might have been angry,
And another man might have been hurt,
But another man never would have let her go...
I stashed the bill in my shirt.

And she walked away in silence,
It's strange, how you never know,
But we'd both gotten what we'd asked for,
Such a long, long time ago.

You see, she was gonna be an actress
And I was gonna learn to fly.
She took off to find the footlights,
And I took off for the sky.
And here, she's acting happy,
Inside her handsome home.
And me, I'm flying in my taxi,
Taking tips, and getting stoned,
I go flying so high, when I'm stoned.

FATES WARNING:Eye To Eye

I saw you once again last night
Through a sea of sullen faces
Admiring eyes following
The path that the spotlight traces

Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
Eye to eye

What was it you saw last night
When you gave yourself to me
Was it the thread of a common bond
Or the touch of cold reality

Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
We can move each other to tears
But we can't see
Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
Each of us alone in silence
When we meet
Eye to eye

All we can really share
Is the coldness we feel
And the silent memory
Of the moment we met

Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
We can move each other to tears
But we can't see
Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
Each of us alone in silence
When we meet
Eye to eye
And the miles still divide
We can move each other to tears
But we can't see
Eye to eye

Green Day~ Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

I walk a lonely road
The only one I that have ever known
Don't know were it goes
But its home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Blvd. of broken dreams
Were the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I'll walk alone

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And were I walk alone

Read between the lines of what's
Fucked up and every things all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I'll walk alone

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh

I walk this empty street
On the Blvd. of broken dreams
Were the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a..

My shadows the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I'll walk away!

I thought this would be appropriate...


Pink it?s my new obsession
Pink it?s not even a question
Pink on the lips of your lover, ?cause
Pink is the love you discover
Pink as the bing on your cherry
Pink ?cause you are so very
Pink it?s the color of passion
`Cause today it just goes with the fashion
Pink it was love at first sight, yea
Pink when I turn out the light, and
Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight
You could be my flamingo
'Cause pink is the new kinda lingo
Pink like a deco umbrella
It's kink - but you don't ever tell her
Pink it was love at first sight
Pink when I turn out the light
Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

I, want to be your lover
I, wanna wrap you in rubber
As pink as the sheets that we lay on
Pink is my favorite crayon, yeah
Pink it was love at first sight
Pink when I turn out the light
Pink it?s like red but not quite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

Never even knew
what you meant to convey
You handed us a retrospect
'til you didn't have a thing to say
No one questions you
Even someone set out to do
Now it'snothing...
but dead and gone
LET'S GO

Better with a lie
than the world's ever seen You wanted all the recognition
until you lost the means
No one talks to you
Even someone set out to do
Take a number... your time has come

CUZ YOU'RE ANOTHER ONE!
YOU'RE ANOTHER SOUL TO FEED
TO THE MAN'S MACHINE!

My excuses lay me down
My emotions make me drown
My endeavor takes blame
At least I have a name

CUZ YOU'RE ANOTHER ONE!
YOU'RE ANOTHER SOUL TO FEED
TO THE MAN'S MACHINE

i just bought this cd solely so i could have this song. :)

Symbolistic White Walls - Matthew Good Band



I'm tired of blood and over priced bubble gum, mom
nobody wake up there's nothing you could have done wrong
I'm wearing the same grin, I take it all on the chin
I still believe everything that I read
and sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's harder
sometimes it's on sale, sometimes it never fails
I have a psychic and she says I'm lonely
she says my destiny is turning out all wrong
so now I just sit here
and think of meaningful things to say

Symbolistic white walls
surround me and you
every single day
I am cheap and see through

I'm tired of blood and over priced bubble gum
nobody moves and nobody gets hurt for very long
I'm wearing the same skin, I take it all on the chin
I still believe everything that I hear
and sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's easier
and sometimes it's all free
I have a psychic and she says I'm lonely
she says inside of me is turning out all wrong
so now I just sit here
and think of meaningless things to say

It's all right now
take the world and make it yours again

Man in the Box -Alice in Chains (no jU you aren't the ONLY fan of them ;) )

I'm the man in the box
Buried in my shit
Won't you come and save me, save me


Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut


I'm the dog who gets beat
Shove my nose in shit
Won't you come and save me, save me


Feed my eyes, can you sew them shut?
Jesus Christ, deny your maker
He who tries, will be wasted
Feed my eyes now you've sewn them shut

I love this song...

Godsmack -- I am

I am your spoken truth
I am the lies in you
I'm gonna make you shine in everything you do
I am your lighted way
And I'm your darkest day
I'm here to help you see you can rely on me
Just consider me your friend
I am until the end
Can I guarantee you life?
I don't think I can
This isn't the life for me
This isn't the way I want to be
And let me tell you
Death will come when I'm good and ready
I am your peace of mind
Confusing all your time
I'm running through your veins, I am your pain
I thought by now you'd know
I'll never let you go
It's time you recognize I am the devil's eyes
Just consider me your friend
I am until the end
Can I guarantee you life?
I don't think I can
This isn't the life for me
This isn't the way I want to be
And let me tell you
Death will come when I'm good and ready
This isn't the life for me
This isn't the way I want to be
And let me tell you
Death will come when I'm good and ready
Take me by my hand
And let me show you what I am
I'm taking control again
Now I know I can
Take you back to where it all began
'Cause I am
This isn't the life for me
This isn't the way I want to be
And let me tell you
Death will come when I'm good and ready
This isn't the life for me
This isn't the way I want to be
And let me tell you
Death will come when I'm good and ready

Like a sentence of death,
I got no options left,
I've got nothing to show now.

I'm down on the ground,
I've got seconds to live,
and you cannot go now.

'Cause love, like invisible bullet shot me down
and I'm bleeding, yeah I'm bleeding
and if you go, furious angels will bring you back to me.
They will bring you back to me.

You're a dirty needle,
you're in my blood and there's no cure in me, yeah.
I wanna run, like the blood from a wound
to a place you can't see me.
'Cause love, like a blow to the head has left me stunned
and I'm reeling, yeah I'm reeling
and if you go, furious angels will bring you back to me.

You're a cold piece of steel between my ribs
and there's no saving me, yeah.
And I can't get up,
from this wet crimson bed that you made for me.
That you made for me!
'Cause love like a knife in the back has cut me down
and I'm bleeding, yeah I'm bleeding,
and if you go, angels will run to defend me, to defend me.

'Cause I can't get up, I'm as cold as a stone,
I can feel the life fade from me.
I'm down on the ground, I've got second to live,
and what's that waits for me, oh that waits for me!
'Cause love like a sentence of death, left me stunned,
and I'm reeling, yeah I'm reeling,
and if you go, furious angels will bring you back to me.

architecture in helsinki - where you've been hiding

stuck at your front gate with some pictures i just went ahead and tore
almost made the door knock twice
broke down on your verandah
and dry concrete into wet concrete

can't find you anywhere
can't find you anywhere
so i wrote you a letter in capital letters saying all that i care for
all that i care for is
where you've been hiding

which way the habits collect neatly
upon your stairs
which way we'll slice all them discretely
leaving them a-footed
when you find what i found where you found where you find when i find
where you've been hiding
where you've been hiding

Heterosexual Man - The Odds

I wanna make every woman I see
I wanna make every woman I see
Do you know what's the matter with me?
I'm a heterosexual man
just a heterosexual man

I wanna do every woman I know
I wanna do it to them in their clothes
I wanna make it with them, don't you know
I'm a heterosexual man
It's just a problem with my glands

I'm a heterosexual, heterosexual man
I'm a heterosexual, heterosexual man

I wanna make every woman I see
I wanna make every woman I see
Maybe make 'em make a baby with me
'cause I'm a heterosexual man
just a heterosexual man

I wanna have every woman I know
I wanna have them take off their clothes
I'll make it with them unless they say no
'cause I"m a heterosexual man
I'll make it with them whenever I can

I'm a heterosexual, heterosexual man
I'm a heterosexual, heterosexual man
I'm a heterosexual duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh, duh

I wanna get every girl on the globe
We kiss and hug and then we disrobe
It's a short circuit in the frontal lobe
I'm a heterosexual man
It's just a problem with my glands

I'm a heterosexual, heterosexual man
I'm a heterosexual, heterosexual man

Sorta funny old song, thought everyone would like it, I get a chuckle when ppl stare at me when I sing it to myself :p

"Break My Body"

I'm the hard looser
You'll find me crashing through my mother's door
I am the ugly lover
You'll find us rolling on the dirty floor

Break my body, hold my bones, hold my bones [3x]

I'm a belly dancer
I'll shake forever and I'll never care
I'm a building jumper
Roof to roof you see me flying in the air

Break my body, hold my bones, hold my bones [3x]

Somebody got hurt
Somebody get hurt
Somebody got her

Interpol - slow hands

Yeah but nobody searches
Nobody cares somehow
When the loving that you've wasted
Comes raining from a hapless cloud
I myself may look upon your face
Disappear in the sweet, sweet gaze
See the living that surrounds me
Dissipate in a violent waste

Can't you see what you've done to my heart
And soul...
This is a wasteland now

We spies, we slow hands
Put the weights all around yourself
We spies, oh yeah, we slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself

I submit my incentive is romance
I watched the pole dance of the stars
We rejoice cause the hurting is so painless
From the distance of passing cars

But I am married to your charms and grace
Just be crazy like the good old days
You make me wanna pick up a guitar
And celebrate the myriad ways that I love you

Can't you see what you've done to my heart
And soul...
This is a wasteland now

We spies, yeah, we slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself
We spies, oh yeah, we slow hands
Killer for hire, you know that yourself

We spies, we slow hands
Put the weights all around yourself
We spies, oh yeah, we slow hands
We retire like nobody else

Settle down you all
Can't you hear the footsteps
Down the hall?
You're waiting for the scream
Of your conscience call
And everyone starts dying
What the f*ck is wrong
I said that I would always find my way back home
Now everyone I love has been left alone
And everyone starts dying
It's you and I
Begging for life
It's you and I
Seems like in death
We all become our perfect self
Last chance to pray
And rid ourself of the pain
Help comes when I don't even want it
Do you really believe that I need it?
Seems like in death I'm alive
Seems like in death I'm alive
Help comes when I don't even want it
Seems like in death
Do you really believe?

New York Minute--Don Henley

Harry got up
Dressed all in black
Went down to the station
And he never came back
They found his clothing
Scattered somewhere down the track
And he won't be down on wall street
In the morning
He had a home
The love of a girl
But men get lost sometimes
As years unfurl
One day he crossed some line
And he was too much in this world
But i guess it doesn't matter anymore

In a new york minute
Everything can change
In a new york minute
Things can get pretty strange
In a new york minute
Everything can change
In a new york minute

Lying here in the darkness
I hear the sirens wail
Somebody going to emergency
Somebody's going to jail
If you find somebody to love in this world
You better hang on tooth and nail
The wolf is always at the door

In a new york minute
Everything can change
In a new york minute
Things can get a little strange
In a new york minute
Everything can change
In a new york minute

And in these days
When darkness falls early
And people rush home
To the ones they love
You better take a fool's advice
And take care of your own
One day they're here;
Next day they're gone

I pulled my coat around my shoulders
And took a walk down through the park
The leaves were falling around me
The groaning city in the gathering dark
On some solitary rock
A desperate lover left his mark,
"baby, i've changed. please come back."
What the head makes cloudy
The heart makes very clear
The days were so much brighter
In the time when she was here
But i know there's somebody somewhere
Make these dark clouds disappear
Until that day, i have to believe
I believe, i believe

In a new york minute
Everything can change
In a new york minute
You can get out of the rain
In a new york minute
Everything can change
In a new york minute

'Better Me, Better You' - Flipfinger

Better slightly broken than abused
Better quietly spoken than like you
Better anything else than what we do

Endless broken promises and outright lies
Tired of seeing reflections of weeping eyes
Rather run than sit and watch time as it flies..

Better you and better me
Better than we used to be
Better with these eyes that clearly see
Better me and better you
To walk away from the things we do
Better back as the person you never knew..

Never retreat, always a call to arms
Never safely, always closer to harm
Never stay quiet, rather sound the alarm

Mission possible, if you adhere to the rules
You get to implode, I get to keep my cool
Hide your head and someone's bound to treat you like a fool

Better you and better me
Better than we used to be
Better with these eyes that clearly see
Better me and better you
To walk away from the things we do
Better back as the person you never knew..

'Falling Through' - Flipfinger

Two steps forward, one step back
Play our game of almost moving
A simple detachment from my emotions
Would make it easier to see
Eighty proof might cloud my judgement
But delivers a certain simplicity
Its all a bit too easy, possibly a little lazy
As my thoughts become hazy

And im...
Falling through..
Broken now.. you got you
But im still
Falling through..
Get what you want, and move on

Your attention for a moment if you will..
Please accept as I delegate my emotional instability
Its impolite of me not to share
So have a taste, participate...
In the never ending maelstrom
The ever-shifting masses
That make who I am...
Available to you...

And im... falling through..
Broken now.. you got you
But im still
Falling through..
Get what you want, and move on

Disenchanted with my own apathy
Slap myself and lecture away
Wish I knew how to teach myself a lesson
That I obviously needed to learn
There's payback, and I'm the bitch
Time to learn to keep my mouth shut
Brass monkey myself
As I toast to your good health

And im... falling through..
Broken now.. you got you
But im still
Falling through..
Get what you want, and move on

:kill:

Man, I've had a few
But they wouldn't quite blow me like you
You gave me your name and sight
With a halo around my eye
And it hits me like never before
That love is a powerful force
Yes it struck me that love is as bored
So I pushed you a little bit more

Love, you're news to me
You're a little bit more than I thought you'd be
A mow in my well fed lawn
You're a nightmare beating the dawn
Oh, it hit me like never before
That love is a powerful force
Yes, it struck me that love is a sport
So I pushed you a little bit more

Blue, blue, black and blue
Red blood sticks like glue
True love is cruel love
Red blood say power fuel
Sweet love, tasty blood
My heart overfloods

Oh, you hit me
Yeah, you hit me really hard
Man, you hit me
Yeah, you hit me right in the heart
Lord, I've had my deal
But I never quite knew how it feels
When love makes you wake up sore
With fists that are ready for more

And it hit me that love is a game
Like in war no one can be blamed
Yes, it struck me that love is a sport
So I pushed you a little bit more

Blue, blue, black and blue
Red blood sticks like glue
True love is cruel love
Red blood say power fuel
Sweet love, tasty blood
My heart overfloods

Man, you hit me
Yeah, you hit me really hard
Baby, you hit me
Yeah, you punched me right in the heart
And then you kissed me
And then you hit me
And then you kissed me
And then you hit me

Oh, you hold me with your violent heartbeat at night
Oh, you strike me with your silence baby, tonight
Why, you hold me with your violence baby, come hit me
You hold me with your violent heartbeat

I miss Spike!!!!


I died
So many years ago
You can make me feel
Like it isn't so
And why you come to be with me
I think I finally know
mmm-mmm

You're scared
Ashamed of what you feel
And you can't tell the ones you love
You know they couldn't deal
Whisper in a dead man's ear
It doesn't make it real
That's great

But I don't wanna play
'Cause being with you touches me
More than I can say
And since Iím only dead to you
Iím saying stay away and
Let me rest in peace

Let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole 6-foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my, sweet release
So let me rest in peace

You know,
You got a willing slave
You just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave
Till you do,
I'm telling you
Stop visiting my grave
Let me rest in peace

I know I should go
But I follow you like a man possessed
There's a traitor here beneath my breast
And it hurts me more than you've ever guessed
If my heart could beat, it would break my chest
but I can see you're unimpressed
So leave me be and

Let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
Im a hole 6-foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
Let me rest in peace
Why won't you
Let me rest in peace?

Hysteria ~ Muse

It's bugging me
Calling me
And twisting me around

Yeah I'm endlessly
Caving in
And turning inside out

'cause I want it now
I want it now
Give me your heart and your soul
And I'm breaking out
I'm breaking out
That's when she'll lose control

Yeah it's holding me
Morphing me
And forcing me to strive

To be endlessly
Cold within
And dreaming I'm alive

'cause I want it now
I want it now
Give me your heart and your soul
I'm not breaking down
I'm breaking out
And I tend to lose control

And I want you now
I want you now
I feel my heart implode
And I'm breaking out
Escaping now
Feeling my faith erode

A child arrived just the other day
Came to the world in the usual way
But there were planed to catch, and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
He was talking before I knew It
And as he grew
He said, "Im gonna be like you, Dad you know Im gonna be like
you"

(chorus)
And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
When you comin home son I dont know when, 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 lets play
can you teach me to throw?"
I said "Not today, Ive got alot to do"
He said "Thats okay"
He walked away and he smiled and he said
"you know Im gonna be like you, dad
you know Im gonna be like you......"

(chorus)

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

(chorus)

Ive long since retired, my son has moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said "Id like to see you if you dont mind"
He said "Id love to dad If I could find the time.
You see my new jobs a hassle, and the kids have the flu.
But Its sure nice talking to you, dad, Its been sure nice
talking to you........"
And as he hung up the phone It had occured to me
He'd grown up just like me, my boy, was just like
me..............

(chorus)

Shinedown -- Burning Bright

I feel like there is no need for conversation
Some questions are better left without a reason
And I would rather reveal myself than my situation
Now and then I consider, my hesitation
The more the light shines through me
I pretend to close my eyes
The more the dark consumes me
I pretend I'm burning, burning bright

I wonder if the things I did were just to be different
To spare myself of the constant shame of my existence
And I would surely redeem myself in my desperation
Here and now I'll express, my situation

The more the light shines through me
I pretend to close my eyes
The more the dark consumes me
I pretend I'm burning, burning bright

The more the light shines through me
I pretend to close my eyes
The more the dark consumes me
I pretend I'm burning, burning bright

There's nothing ever wrong but nothing's ever right
Such a cruel contradiction
I know I cross the lines its not easy to define
I'm born to indecision
There's always something new some path I'm supposed to choose
With no particular rhyme or reason

I was born in the desert
I been down for years
Jesus, come closer
I think my time is near

And I've traveled over
Dry earth and floods
Hell and high water
To bring you my love

Climbed over mountains
Travelled the sea
Cast down off heaven
Cast down on my knees
I've laid with the devil
Cursed god above
Forsaken heaven
To bring you my love

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

I know he's gonna be here
He know he's gonna be here
Yeah alright

Forsaken heaven
Cursed god above
Lay with the devil
Bring you my love

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

The Promise ~ When in Rome


If you need a friend, don't look to a stranger,
You know in the end, I'll always be there.
But when you're in doubt, and when you're in danger,
Take a look all around, and I'll be there.
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.
When your day is through, and so is your temper,
You know what to do, I'm gonna always be there.
Sometimes if I shout, it's not what's intended.
These words just come out, with no gripe to bear.
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you...
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.
I gotta tell you, I gotta tell you, I need to tell you...
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you...
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will. I will. I will.

WALK IN THE SHADOWS


What? You say you're through with me
I'm not through with you
We've had what others might call love
You say it's over now,
What's done, what's through?
You can't stay away, you need me
I need you

When the fire starts the pain's too much
For your mind
You need attention, what's good is only mine
I can cure the hunger that burns in your heart
Just come to me
I'll take you home
We'll walk in the shadows
By day we'll live in a dream
We'll walk in the shadows

You say you don't feel safe alone tonight
Cause you feel the pressure building in your head
Our secret's safe for one more night
But when the morning comes remember
I'll be with you

We'll walk in the shadows
By day we'll live in a dream
We'll walk in the shadows
One day you'll be with me
If only you believe...

I've hardly been outside my room in days,
'cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine's rays.
The darkness helped until the whiskey wore away,
and it was then I realized the conscience never fades.
When you're young you have this image of your life:
that you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife.
And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross,
and if you happen to you wake completely lost.
But I will fight for you, be sure that
I will fight until we're the special two once again.

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together,
our hands will not be taught to hold another's,
'cause we're the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'll breathe together,
these arms will not be taught to need another's,
'cause we're the special two.

I remember someone old once said to me:
"that lies will lock you up with truth the only key."
But I was comfortable and warm inside my shell,
and couldn't see this place could soon become my hell.
So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face?
Well I guess the answer is don't do it in the first place.
I know I'm not deserving of your trust from you right now,
but if by chance you change your mind you know I will not
let you down 'cause we were the special two, and will be again.

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together,
our hands will not be taught to hold another's,
'cause we're the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'll breathe together,
these arms will not be taught to need another's,
'cause we're the special two.

I step outside my mind's eyes for a minute.
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease,
or something that could ease the pain.
But nothing cures the hurt you bring on by yourself,
just remembering, just remembering how we were...

When we would only need each other, we'd bleed together,
these hands would not be taught to hold another's,
we we're the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'd bleed together,
these arms will not be taught to need another's,
'cause we're the special two.

Reflection. . . Tool.

I have come curiously close to the end, though
Beneath my self indulgent pitiful hole.
Defeated I concede and move closer. I may find comfort here
I may find peace within the emptiness. How pitiful.
It's calling me...

And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping.
The moon tells me a secret. My confidant.
As full and bright as I am, this light is not my own
a million light reflections pass over me.
It's source is bright and endless.
She resuscitates the hopeless-without her
We are lifeless satellites drifting.

And as I pull my head out
I am without one doubt.
Don't want to be down here
Feeding my narcissism, I
must crucify the ego before it's far too late
I pray the light lifts me out...
before I pine away.

So crucify the ego
Before it's far too late
To leave behind this place so
Negative and blind and cynical.

And we will come to find
that we are all one mind
Capable of all that's
Imagine the unconceivable.

Just let the light touch you
And let the words spill through
Just let them pass right through
Bringing out our hope and reason...

Before We Pine Away

First Of The Gang To Die

You have never been in love, Until you have seen the stars, reflect in the reservoirs
And you have never been in love, Until you have seen the dawn rise, behind the home for the blind

We are the pretty, petty thieves, And you're standing on our streets
Where Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time, the first of the gang to die, Oh my
Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time, the first of the gang to die, Oh my

You have never been in love, Until you've seen the sunlight thrown, Over smashed human bone

We are the pretty, petty thieves, And you're standing on our streets
Where Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the first to do time, the first of the gang to die, Such a silly boy
Hector was the first of the gang with a gun in his hand
And the bullet in his gullet and the first lost lad to go under the sod

And he stole from the rich and the poor and not very rich and the very poor
And he stole our hearts away
He stole our hearts away, He stole our hearts away
He stole our hearts away, He stole our hearts away

The Postal Service: Nothing Better

Male voice: Will someone please call a surgeon
Who can crack my ribs and repair this broken heart
That your're deserting for better company?
I can't accept that it's over...
I will block the door like a goalie tending the net
In the third quarter of a tied-game rivalry

So just say how to make it right
And i swear i'll do my best to comply

Tell me am i right to think that there could be nothing better
Than making you my bride and slowly growing old together

Female voice: I feel must interject here you're getting carried away feeling sorry for yourself
With these revisions and gaps in history
So let me help you remember.
I've made charts and graphs that should finally make it clear.
I've prepared a lecture on why i have to leave

So please back away and let me go
Male Voice: I can't my darling i love you so...

Tell me am i right to think that there could be nothing better
Than making you my bride and slowly growing old together

Female Voice: Don't you feed me lines about some idealistic future
Your heart won't heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures
Male voice: I admit that i have made mistakes and i swear
I'll never wrong you again

Female voice: You've got a lure i can't deny,
But you've had your chance so say goodbye
Say goodbye

Coin operated boy

coin operated boy
sitting on the shelf he is just a toy
but i turn him on and he comes to life
automatic joy
that is why i want a coin operated boy

made of plastic and elastic
he is rugged and long-lasting
who could ever ever ask for more
love without complications galore
many shapes and weights to choose from
i will never leave my bedroom
i will never cry at night again
wrap my arms around him and pretend....

coin operated boy
all the other real ones that i destroy
cannot hold a candle to my new boy and i'll
never let him go and i'll never be alone
not with my coin operated boy......

this bridge was written to make you feel smittener
with my sad picture of girl getting bitterer
can you extract me from my plastic fantasy
i didnt think so but im still convinceable
will you persist even after i bet you
a billion dollars that i'll never love you
will you persist even after i kiss you
goodbye for the last time
will you keep on trying to prove it?
i'm dying to lose it...
i want it
i want you
i want a coin operated boy.

and if i had a star to wish on
for my life i cant imagine
any flesh and blood could be his match
i can even take him in the bath

coin operated boy
he may not be real experienced with girls
but i know he feels like a boy should feel
isnt that the point that is why i want a
coin operated boy
with his pretty coin operated voice
saying that he loves me that hes thinking of me
straight and to the point
that is why i want
a coin operated boy.



*sigh* for some reason I identify with the boy. Used and put away on the shelf :fred:

Under You're Spell

I lived my life in shadow, never the sun on my face.
It didn't seem so sad, though; I figured that was my place.
Now I'm bathed in light. Something just isn't right.
I'm under your spell.
How else could it be anyone would notice me?
It's magic, I can tell,
How you set me free, brought me out so easily.

I saw a world enchanted, spirits and charms in the air.
And I always took for granted I was the only one there.
But your powers shone brighter than any I've known.
I'm under your spell.
Nothing I can do - you just took my soul with you.
You worked your charm so well:
Finally I knew everything I dreamed was true.
You made me believe.

The moon to the tide, I can feel you inside.
I'm under your spell
Surging like the sea, drawn to you so helplessly.
I break with every swell,
Lost in ecstacy, spread beneath my Willow tree.
You made me complete.
You make me complete.

Numb - Portishead

Unable so lost
I can't find my way
Been searching, but I have never seen
A turning, a turning from deceit

Cos the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel

I can't understand myself anymore
But I m still feeling lonely
Feeling so unholy

Cos the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel
But this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone

I'm fooling somebody
A faithless path to roam
Deceiving to breath this secretly
This silence, a silence I can't bear

Cos the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel
And this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone
And this loneliness,
It just won't leave me alone, ohh no

Stapled shut- inside an outside world
And Iím sealed in tight- bizarre but right at home
Iím claustrophobic- closing in
And Iím catastrophic- not again
Iím smeared across the page and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet Iím the one whoís obscene
Catch me up on all your sordid little insurrections
Iíve got no time to lose, Iím just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the stringsÖ
Throw the shapesÖ
Hold your breathÖ
Listen

I am a world before Iím a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget thatÖ

Iím ripped across the ditch and settled in the dirt
And I wear you like a stitch, yet Iím the one whoís hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions
Iíve got no right to win- Iím just caught up in all the battles

Locked in clutchÖ
Pushed in placeÖ
Hold your breathÖ
Listen

I am a world before Iím a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget thatÖ

My end, it justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road is my end

I am a world before Iím a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget thatÖ

Monty Python's Lumberjack song...


I... I wanted to be...

A LUMBERJACK!

(piano vamp)

Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of
British Columbia! With my best girl by my side!
The Larch!
The Pine!
The Giant Redwood tree!
The Sequoia!
The Little Whopping Rule Tree!
We'd sing! Sing! Sing!


Oh, I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

CHORUS: He's a lumberjack, and he's okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch,
I go to the lava-try.
On Wednesdays I go shoppin'
And have buttered scones for tea.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch,
He goes to the lava-try.
On Wednesdays 'e goes shoppin'
And has buttered scones for tea.

CHORUS

I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing,
And hang around in bars.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps,
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing
And hangs around.... In bars???????

CHORUS

I chop down trees, I wear high heels,
Suspenders and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie
Just like my dear papa.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he wears high heels
Suspendies?? and a .... a Bra????
(spoken, raggedly) What's this? Wants to be a *girlie*? Oh, My!
And I thought you were so rugged! Poofter!

CHORUS

All: He's a lumberjack, and he's okaaaaaaayyy.....

Amie
by Pure Prairie League

I can see why you think you belong to me
I never tried to make you think or let you see one thing for yourself
But now you're off with someone else and I'm alone
You see I thought I might keep you for my own

Amie, what you wanna do
I think I could stay with you
For a while maybe longer if I do

Don't you think the time is right for us to find
All the things we thought weren't proper could be right in time
And can you see which way we should turn together or alone
I can never see what's right or what is wrong
Don't you take too long to tell me

Amie, what you wanna do
I think I could stay with you
For a while maybe longer if I do

Amie, what you wanna do
I think I could stay with you
For a while maybe longer if I do

Now it's come to what you want you've had your way
And all the things you thought before just faded into gray
And can you see that I don't know if it's you or if it's me
If it's one of us I'm sure we both will see
Won't you look at me and tell me

Amie, what you wanna do
I think I could stay with you
For a while maybe longer if I, longer if I do

Amie, what you wanna do
I think I could stay with you
For a while maybe longer if I do

I Miss You ~ Blink 182

Hello there, the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
We'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends

(I miss you, I miss you)
(I miss you, I miss you)

Where are you and I'm so sorry
I cannot sleep I cannot dream tonight
I need somebody and always
This sick strange darkness
Comes creeping on so haunting every time
And as I stared I counted
Webs from all the spiders
Catching things and eating their insides
Like indecision to call you
and hear your voice of treason
Will you come home and stop this pain tonight
Stop this pain tonight

Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you, I miss you)
Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you, I miss you)


(I miss you, I miss you)

The Chain- Fleetwood Mac


Listen to the wind blow
Watch the sun rise

Run in the shadows
Damn your love
Damn your lies

And if
You donít love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain.

Listen to the wind blow
Down comes the night

Run in the shadows
Damn your love
Damn your lies

Break the silence
Damn the dark
Damn the light

And if
You donít love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain.

As I was walkiní íround grosvenor square
Not a chill to the winter but a nip to the air,
From the other direction, she was calling my eye,
It could be an illusion, but I might as well try, might as well try.

She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes.
And I knew without askiní she was into the blues.
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls,
I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls.

In the thick of the evening when the dealing got rough,
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff.
As I picked up my matches and was closing the door,
I had one of those flashes Iíd been there before, been there before.

Well, I ainít always right but Iíve never been wrong.
Seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
Once in a while you get shown the light
In the strangest of places if you look at it right.

Well there ainít nothing wrong with the way she moves,
Scarlet begonias or a touch of the blues.
And thereís nothing wrong with the look thatís in her eyes,

Wind in the willowís playiní tea for two;
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue,
Strangers stoppiní strangers just to shake their hand,
Everybodyís playing in the heart of gold band, heart of gold band.

"The Widow" Mars Volta

He's got fasting black lungs
Made of clothes splintered shardes
They're the kind that will talk
through wheezing of coughs

And I hear him
Every night in very pore
Every time it just makes me want to

Breathe without an answer
Free from all in shade

Must I hide?
Cause I'll never
Never sleep alone

Look at how they flock to him
To an aisle of open sores
He knows that the taste is such
Is such to die for

And I hear him
Every night on every street
It spills out the slither
Deliver me from

Breathe without an answer
Free from all in shade

And I'll hide
Cause I'll never
Never sleep alone

Say that
Say that I'm blood shot for sure
Pay that ride on a ghost
I'm floating on the shore
Floating on the shore

Every night in every pore
Spills out the slither
Deliver me from

Breathe without an answer
Free from all in shade

And I'll hide
Cause I'll never
Never Sleep Alone

Breathe without an answer
Free from all in shade

Let me die
Cause I'll never
Never Sleep Alone
