\"Simple\" – Collective Soul

Tangle up your twisted tongue. It’s simple.
Mesmerize your everyday. It’s simple.
Hey hey can’t you see?
Love is all that you should need.
Can’t you see?

Ease your troubled mind.
Let love seek & let love find. It’s simple.
Ease your weary soul.
Let love lead & let love flow. It’s simple.

Pry into combative times. It’s simple.
Forfeit all lush concerns. It’s simple.
Hey hey don’t you care?
Love is all that you should share.
Don’t you care?

Cleansing out your tarnished heart.
It’s simple.
Learning from each other can be simple.
Hey hey don’t we know?
Love is all that we should show.
Don’t we know?

i really like this song. i feel like this sometimes. i just want to go to an imaginary place and stay lost in my thoughts. escape the real world for a while.

Imaginary

~ Evanescence

I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clock screaming
Monsters calling my name
Let me stay
Where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops
As they’re falling tell a story

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

Don’t say I’m out of touch
With this rampant chaos- your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
The nightmare I built my own world to escape

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
The goddess of imaginary light

I like this song’s lyrics for some reason, always gets stuck in my head. :D

\"That Time on the Ledge\" by Mew

Sweetness, please try
The summer springs to mind, said I
Most of that night now escapes me, she replied

No, don’t let in
For years of curious fear derived
Every night
We’ll all set aside

A bomb adhered to memories

Sweetness, don’t cry
The hurtful ones were meant to die

No, don’t let in
For years of curious fear derived
Every night
We’ll all set aside

A fire rite you like to watch

No, don’t let in
For years of curious fear derived
Every night
We’ll all set aside

She said,
”What if I said goodbye now?
What if I, not knowing why,
left you all behind on the ledge?”
I replied,
that I knew now
I was glad I did not push you off
that time on the ledge

And I’m still glad
I did not push you off
that time on the ledge

\"the difference between medicine and poison is the dose\" by circa survive. it got me through a real tough time a couple years ago.

Move one inch at a time, don’t make shit rhyme
Would it be easy to repeat the first line?
my mind’s not a well, it won’t run dry
just keep drinking water and you’ll be alright
this is paralysis, with no time at all to let go

Well, don’t call me by my full name
and all this is temporary
it feels much better to know that you won’t feel a thing
well don’t talk about it, write it down, but don’t ask for help
i can’t be honest with even myself
did you ever wish you were somebody else?

accomplishments are transient
they pull me in unremittingly
just lasting this long
i feel relieved to let repetition save me

Well, don’t call me by my full name

Move one inch at a time, you’ll be just fine
Move one inch at a time, you’ll find they pull me in

Chevelle – Send the Pain Below

I liked having hurt,
So send the pain below where I need it,
You used to beg me to take care of things,
And smile at the thought of me failing.

But long before, having hurt,
I’d send the pain below,
I’d send the pain below.

Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating,
(I’d send the pain below…)
Much like suffocating,
(I’d send the pain below…)

You used to run me away,
All while laughing.
Then cry about that fact,
’til I returned.

But long before, having hurt,
I’d send the pain below,
I’d send the pain below.

Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating,
Much like suffocating,
(I’d send the pain below…)
Much like suffocating,
(I’d send the pain below…)
Much like suffocating.

I can’t feel my chest,
Need more, drop down,
Closing in.

I can’t feel my chest,
Drop down.

I liked, having hurt.
So send the pain below,
So send the pain below,

Muse – Yes Please

Hooohoooha yes please HAHA!

I cannot sleep
There’s too much noise in my head
I cannot sleep
I want it here instead

I never thought that this could come to this
I just wanna look at your face in peace now
You’ll never miss
But I can

I cannot keep
The shame that’s clawed us out
I will not keep
Your shut-up, shut-up lies

I never thought that this could come to this
I just wanna live in bliss, in peace now
You will never miss
But I can

Bjork – \"Bachelorette\"

I’m a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You’re the bird on the brim
Hypnotised by the Whirl

Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
Game we’re playing is life
Love is a two way dream

Leave me now, return tonight
Tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I’m a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You’re the one who walks me
I’m your one way street

I’m a whisper in water
Secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When I beckon you near

Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I’m a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You’re the intruder hand
I’m the branch that you break

Thinking About You – Radiohead

Been thinking about you
Your record’s a hit
Your eyes are on my wall
Your teeth are over there
But I’m still no one
And you’re my star
What do you care?

Been thinking about you
And there’s no rest
Should I still love you
Still see you in bed
But I’m playing with myself
What do you care?
When the other men are far far better

All the things you’ve got
All the things you need
Who bought you cigarettes
Who bribed the company to come and see you honey?

I’ve been thinking about you
So how can you sleep
These people aren’t your friends
They’re paid to kiss your feet
They don’t know what I know
And why should you care
When I’m not there

Been thinking about you
And there’s no rest
Should I still love you
Still see you in bed
But I’m playing with myself
What do you care?
When I’m not there.

All the things you’ve got
That you’ll never need
All the things you’ve got
I’ve bled and I’d bleed to please you
… honey

Been thinking about you..

The Zookeeper’s Boy- Mew

Are you my lady, are you?

If I don’t make it back from the city then
It is only because I am drawn away
For you see, evidently there’s a dark storm come
And the chain on my swing is squeaking like a mouse

So are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain

You’re tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head
But if there’s a glitch
You’re an ostrich
You’ve got your head in the sand

In a submersible I can hardly breathe
As it takes me inside, so the light sings
Answer me truthfully, do the clouds kiss you
With meringue-coloured hair I know they cannot

So are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain

Santa Ana winds bring seasickness
Zookeeper hear me out
How dare you go?
Cold in the rain

Tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head
But if there’s a glitch
You’re an ostrich
You’ve got your head in the sand

Are you my lady, are you?
The rain, the rain, the rain is falling down
The cars remain

I could not be seen with you
Working half the time and looking fine
In cars re-made

Man on the Corner – Genesis

See the lonely man there on the corner,
What he’s waiting for, I don’t know,
But he waits everyday now.
He’s just waiting for something to show.

And nobody knows him,
And nobody cares,
‘Cos there’s no hiding place,
There’s no hiding place – for you.

Looking everywhere at no one,
He sees everything and nothing at all – oh.
When he shouts nobody listens,
Where he leads no one will go – oh.

He’s a lonely man, there on the corner,
What he’s waiting for, I don’t know,
But he waits everyday now.
And he’s just waiting for something to show – oh.

Nobody knows him,
And nobody cares,
‘Cos there’s no hiding place,
There’s no hiding place – for you and me.

Are we just like all the rest,
We’re looking too hard for something he’s got
Or moving too fast to rest.
But like a monkey on your back you need it.
But do you love it enough to leave it – ah.

Just like the lonely man there on the corner,
What he’s waiting for, I don’t know – oh.
But he waits every day now.
He’s just waiting for that something to show – oh.

Who’s the lonely man there on the corner,
What he’s waiting for, I don’t know.
But he’s there every day now.
And he’s just waiting for something to show – oh.

Who’s the lonely man there on the corner,
What he’s waiting for, I don’t know.
Oh but he waits every day now.
He’s just waiting for that something to show.

Two-Headed Boy Part 2- Neutral Milk Hotel

Daddy, please, hear this song that I sing
In your heart there’s a spark that just screams
For a lover to bring
A child to your chest that could lay as you sleep
And love all you have left like your boy used to be
Long ago wrapped in sheets warm and wet

Blister, please, with those wings in your spine
Love to be with a brother of mine
How he’d love to find
Your tongue in his teeth, in a struggle to find
Secret songs that you keep wrapped in boxes so tight
Sounding only at night as you sleep

In my dreams you’re alive and you’re crying
As your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet
Rings of flowers around your eyes and I’ll love you
For the rest of your life

Brother, see, we are one and the same
And you left with your head filled with flames
And you watched as your brains
Fell out through your teeth, push the pieces in place
Make your smile sweet to see, don’t you take this away
I’m still wanting my face on your cheek

And when we break, we’ll wait for our miracle
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies
And when we break, we’ll wait for our miracle
God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life

Two headed boy, she is all you could need
She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires
And retire to sheets safe and clean
But don’t hate her when she gets up to leave

Audioslave – Last Remaining Light

Roll me on your frozen fields
Break my bones to watch them heal
Drown me in your thirsty veins
Where I’ll watch and I’ll wait
And pray for the rain

Curl like smoke and breath again
Down your throat inside your ribs
Through your spine in every nerve
Where I watch and I wait and yield to the herd

And if you don’t believe
The sun will rise
Stand alone and greet
The coming night
In the last remaining light

Seven moons and seven suns
Heaven waits for those who run
Down your winter and
Underneath your waves
Where you watch and you wait
And pray for the day

And if you don’t believe
The sun will rise
Stand alone and greet
The coming night
In the last remaining light

And if you don’t believe
The sun will rise
Stand alone and greet

Audioslave – Be Yourself :)

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WC5FdFlUcl0[/youtube]

Someone falls to pieces, sleeping all alone
Someone kills the pain, spinning in the silence
To finally drift away
Someone gets excited
In a chapel yard and catches a bouquet
Another lays a dozen, white roses on a grave

Yeah and to be yourself is all that you can do
Hey, to be yourself is all that you can do

Someone finds salvation in everyone, another only pain
Someone tries to hide himself, down inside himself he prays
Someone swears his true love until the end of time
Another runs away, separate or united, healthy or insane

And to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah
(All that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)To be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
Hey, be yourself is all that you can do

Even when you’ve paid enough
Been pulled apart or been held up
Every single memory of the good or bad
Faces of luck
Don’t lose any sleep tonight
I’m sure everything will end up alright
You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do, yeah
To be yourself is all that you can do
Oh, to be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
Hey, to be yourself is all that you can do
(All that you can do)
To be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can
Be yourself is all that you can do

The Fratellis – Whistle for the Choir

Well it’s a big big city and it’s always the same
Can never be too pretty tell me your name
Is it out of line if I was to be bold and say \"Would you be mine?\"

Because I may be a beggar and you may be the queen
I know I may be on a downer i’m still ready to dream
Though it’s 3 o’clock the time is just the time it takes for you to talk

So if you’re lonely why’d you say you’re not lonely
Oh you’re a silly girl, I know I heard it so
It’s just like you to come and go
And know me no you don’t even know me
You’re so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye
A girl like you’s just irresistible

Well it’s a big big city and the lights are all out
But it’s much as I can do you know to figure you out
And I must confess, my heart’s in broken pieces
And my head’s a mess
And it’s 4 in the morning, and I’m walking along
Beside the ghost of every drinker here who has ever done wrong
And it’s you, woo hoo
That’s got me going crazy for the things you do

So if you’re crazy I don’t care you amaze me
but you’re a stupid girl, oh me, oh my, you talk
I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry
And only, a girl like you could be lonely
And it’s a crying shame, if you would think the same
A boy like me’s just irresistible

So if you’re lonely, why’d you say you’re not lonely
Oh you’re a silly girl, I know I heard it so
It’s just like you to come and go
And know me, no you don’t even know me
Your so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye
A girl like you’s just irresistible

Motograter- New Design (Start Over)

I woke up today
Didn’t feel like I had slept at all
Just another restless night
Such a reckless life
I wish that I could take it slow
Live it simple day by day
But there’s always something new
Something in the way

Id like to change the hands of time
Start over, someone hit rewind
Break ground and build a new design
Start over, leave this all behind

Thumbing through the paper
It’s the same old black and white
One man gets to live
And a dozen have to die
The reality that we create
We cross the lines we love to hate
Something we see everyday
But we always choose to look away

I’d like to change the hands of time
Start over, someone hit rewind
Break ground and build a new design
Start over, leave this all behind

The times have changed
But were still the same
The cycle just repeats itself
It goes on and on
The times have changed
But were still the same
The cycle just repeats itself
It goes on and on and on
On and on and on

Creeping down the boulevard
Among the walking dead
They’re numb to nearly everything
Accepting what they’re fed

I’d like to change the hands of time
Start over, someone hit rewind
Break ground and build a new design
Start over, leave this all behind

The times have changed
But were still the same
The cycle just repeats itself
It goes on and on
The times have changed
But were still the same
The cycle just repeats itself
It goes on and on and on

OpShop – Maybe

So what’s this big secret you can’t tell me
I don’t wanna piece of this

Haven’t we all had enough
Enough for one day
I don’t wanna argue with you
You’ve got me shiverin’ in my spine

If everything turned out as we had said
We wouldn’t have to sit through any of this
Maybe I would be a better fit in my own skin

I’m not gonna try to divide or ignore you
And the pieces of the puzzle that never seem to fit

I’m not playin’ hangman with you
I’ve run out of letters, let alone words
You’ve got me shiverin’ in my spine

If everything turned out as we had said
We wouldn’t have to sit here talkin’ like this
Maybe I would be a better fit in my own skin
Maybe

If everything turned out as we had planned
We wouldn’t have to go through any of this
Maybe it’ll be more simple than you could ever think

So stay right where you are
We’re snoozin’ through an alarm
Make no sudden movements
Just tell me where we are
Cause here I am
There you are
Snoozin’ through an alarm
Snoozin’ through an alarm

If everything turned out as we had said
We wouldn’t have to go through any of this
Maybe

Maybe (oh)

Arcade Fire- \"Antichrist Television Blues\"

Don’t want to work in a building downtown
No, I don’t want to work in a building downtown
I don’t know what I’m going to do
Because the planes keep crashing always two by two
Don’t want to work in a building downtown
No, I don’t want to see it when the planes hit the ground

Don’t want to work in a building downtown
Don’t want to work in a building downtown
Parking the cars in the underground
The voices when they scream, well, they make no sound
Want to see the cities rust
And the troublemakers riding on the back of the bus

Dear God, I’m a good Christian man
I’m your boy, I know you understand
That you got to work hard and you got to get paid
The girl’s thirteen, but she don’t act her age
She can sing like a bird in cage
Oh Lord, if you could see her when she’s up on that stage

You know that I’m a God-fearing man
You know that I’m a God-fearing man
I just got to know if it’s part of your plan
To see my darling stand by your right hand
I know that you’ll do what’s right, Lord
For they are the lanterns and you are the light

Now I’m overcome
By the light of day
My lips are near
But my heart is far away
Tell me what to say
I’ll be your mouthpiece

Into the light of a bridge that burns
As I drive through the city with the money that I earn
To the dark of a starless sky
I won’t stare into nothing and I’m asking you why
Lord, let me make her a star
So the world can see who you really are

Little girl, you’re old enough to understand
You’ll always be a stranger in a strange, strange land
Men are going to come while you’re fast asleep
So you better just stay close and hold onto me
If mama’s mockingbird don’t sing well,
Then daddy won’t buy her no diamond ring

Dear God, would you send me a child?
Oh God, would you send me a child?
Because I want to put it up on the TV screen
So the world can see what your true word means
Lord, won’t you send me a sign?
Because I just got to know if I’m wasting my time

Now I’m overcome
By the light of day
My lips are near
But my heart is far away
But now the war is won
How come nothing tastes good?

Oh you’re such a sensitive child
You know you’re such a sensitive child
I know you’re tired, but it’s all right
I just needed you to sing for me tonight
You’re going to have your day in the sun
You know God loves the sensitive ones

Oh, my little bird in a cage
Oh, my little bird in a cage
I need you to get up for me up on that stage
Show all the men that you’re old for your age
Now in the times of fear
But if you don’t take it, it’ll disappear

Oh, my little mockingbird, sing
Oh, my little mockingbird, sing
I need you to get up on the stage for me, honey
Show the men it’s not about the money
Want to hold a mirror up to the world
So that they can see themselves inside my little girl

Do you know where I was at your age?
Any idea where I was at your age?
I was working downtown for the minimum wage!
And I couldn’t let you just throw it all away
Throw me a kid, God, throw me a knife
So tell me Lord, am I the Antichrist?

Collective Soul – \"The World I Know\"

Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in New York City
And I don’t know why.

Are we listening?
Hymns of offering.
Have we eyes to see?
Love is gathering.
All the words that I’ve been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding
Into one.

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down.
‘Cause it’s the world I know.
It’s the world I know.

\"A Dark Design\"

Opens up her blouse to the cool night
With no shaking of time
Because she has in mind
A dark design
Now I’m a so-called cube
Speaking out, she said to me

She said:
Hi. I’m twice coloured
Wait till you see how their in love
With my sickness
There is no more time for the weaklings
With an unfamiliar smile
A self-destructive mind of dark design
We may just live through life
Watching it from sweet repose
Cut up with knives that slice open
I’m professional now

Everly, everly I
Can you not look at me through sides?
Everly, everly I
Did you not summon up their kite?

Opens up her face
To the delight of their red piercing beaks
It didn’t hurt this time
My dark design
They leave her left behind
Slits into her all convinced
That she’s their favourite way
Practicing
But getting worse

So high
I’m twice coloured
Wait till you see
I made a truce with the blackness dyer
I know colours wait for you
I feel so car-sick and alone

Give me the disk, Angela.Somewhere in the world, Dongsoo Kim loves you...Thirsting for God in a Land of Shallow Wells.365 Days of Winter!!!

Counting Crows – Raining in Baltimore

The circus is falling down on its knees
The big top is crumbling down
It’s raining in Baltimore fifty miles east
Where you should be, no one’s around
I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I need a big love
I need a phone call
These train conversations are passing me by
And I don’t have nothing to say
You get what you pay for
But I just had no intention of living this way
I need a phone call
I need a plane ride
I need a sunburn
I need a raincoat
And I get no answers
And I don’t get no change
It’s raining in Baltimore, baby
But everything else is the same
There’s things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
Three thousand five hundred miles away
But what would you change if you could?
I need a phone call Maybe I should buy a new car
I can always hear a freight train Baby, if I listen real hard
And I wish, I wish it was a small world
Because I’m lonely for the big towns
I’d like to hear a little guitar
I guess it’s time to put the top down
I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I really need a raincoat
I really really need a rain coat
I really really really need a rain coat
I really need a raincoat

Stone Temple Pilots – Atlanta

She lives in the bungalow
She kills me with rose garden thorns
She waits for me
My love is unusual
It’s painted with roses and thorns
With her I’m complete

She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me
She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me

Visions of Mexico seduce me
It goes to my head so carefully
Memories of candles and incense
And all of these things remember these?

She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me
She lives by the wall and waits by the door
She walks in the sun to me

She comforts me when the candles burn out
The cake has grown mold but the memories are sweet
The laughter’s all all gone but the memories are mine
The Mexican princess is out of my life

Radiohead – Street Spirit

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

The Police – King of Pain

There’s a little black spot on the sun today
That’s my soul up there.
It’s the same old thing as yesterday
That’s my soul up there.
There’s a black hat caught in a high tree top
That’s my soul up there.
There’s a flag pole rag and the wind won’t stop
That’s my soul up there.

I have stood here before in the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running ’round my brain.
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign,
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain…

There’s a fossil that’s trapped in a high cliff wall
There’s a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
There’s a blue whale beached by a springtime’s ebb
There’s a butterfly trapped in a spider’s web

There’s a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
There’s a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
There’s a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There’s a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

There’s a red fox torn by a huntsman’s pack
There’s a black-winged gull with a broken back
There’s a little black spot on the sun today.
It’s the same old thing as yesterday,
That’s my soul up there…………………..

I have stood here before in the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running ’round my brain.
I guess I always thought you could end this reign,
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain………….

I’ll always be king of pain……………

……………………………………………………………………………………..

I always thought it was ‘there’s a black cat caught in a high tree top’
‘black hat’ doesn’t seem as cool, to me.
