Thursday - Cross Out The Eyes.

Let's call this the quiet city:
Where screams are flet as a wave of stoplights
Drive through the the streets as gunshots punctuate the night
The sides we take divide us from our faith
And the morning dove gets caught in the telephone wire

Asleep you set the fire in your own house
And the night was a knife that cut
And I'm paralyzed

Cross out the eyes
Blur all the lines
Tearing this canvas from the wall
We crossed out the eyes
Put lines through these cries
We pulled all the leaves from the trees that fall

A silent dance that we did into this hospital bed
Hear voices from another room
"It happens all the time"
But July in the sand
Then the leaves that fall
And counting down our days to live....
Drain the blood from this valentine.

"We can rise on the wings of the dove
See blue skies getting caught in the trail of all this smoke
We can rise like candles in the dark your always"
and an envelope marked with your new address

It was the first time face to face
I'm crossing the line
Talking to the other side of death
Hearing the words that choke memories into flatlines
I'm calling your name hoping for something to wash these dreams of you away

Our fence was blown down in a winter storm and this field
stretched out of this world into the sound of a trace of blood in a love song
What can we do to put a stop to the coming white days?
I'm hoping the snow will push these dreams of you away


Avril Lavigne - Unwanted.

All they did was walk over
Start off by shaking your hands
That's how it went
I had a smile on my face and I sat up straight
Oh, yeah, yeah
I wanted to know you
I wanted to show you

[chorus]
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
You don't want me there
You just shut me out
You don't know me
Don't ignore me
If you had your way
You'd just shut me up
Make me go away

No, I just don't understand why
you won't talk to me
It hurts that I'm so unwanted for nothing
Don't talk words against me
I wanted to know you
I wanted to show you

[chorus]

I tried to belong
It didn't seem wrong
My head aches
Its been so long
Ill write this song
if That's what it takes

[chorus (2x)]

frankly Mr. Shankley I'm a sickening wreck
I've got the 21st century, breathing down my neck
I must move fast, you understand me,
I want to go down in musical history

Frankly Mr. Shankly since you ask
You are a flatulent pain in the ass
I do not mean to be so rude
Still I must speak frankly Mr. Shankley
Oh, give us money.

sorry, just going through me brain at the moment...

Torture (1629)
Anna... was praying to a God
She had betrayed, so they said
Some folk had seen her flying on a broom
All Hallows Eve, under the moon
The inquisitor had left her behind
Gone for a bite, food on his mind
The sun was slowly trying to hide
Behind a town so full of pride
A sight Anna would never see again

Torture in the name of Christ, confess, oh you witch
Torture in the name of Christ, you witch you... confess

Sitting naked on the wooden horse
Weights to her legs, what a holy cross
Her bloody hands tied to her back
Her golden hair burned to black

Thumbscrews they had used
To crush each tip of her fingers to a pulp
In the torture chamber, she couldn't feel much more
Of anything... anymore

Torture in the name of Christ, confess, oh you witch
Torture in the name of Christ, you witch you... confess

Satan's mark... had slipped away
They already searched her body twice today
And it was all in vain

Oh Anna here they come again
Off the horse, strapado for a friend
Up she goes, higher and higher
Anna's crying, screaming: "Liars"

Confess, confess witch
Confess, before you die

"Yes, yes, I am a witch, may Satan take you all"

They dropped her from the ceiling
To a foot above the floor
Her ams and legs disjointed
Screams of pain... then finally no... more

The Decemberists - "Mariner's Revenge Song"

We are two mariners
Our ships' sole survivors
In this belly of a whale

Its ribs our ceiling beams
Its guts our carpeting
I guess we have some time to kill

You may not remember me
I was a child of three
And you, a lad of eighteen

But I remember you
And I will relate to you
How our histories interweave

At the time you were
A rake and a roustabout
Spending all your money
On the whores and hounds
Oh Ohhhhh

You had a charming air
All cheap and debonair
My widowed mother found so sweet

And so she took you in
Her sheets still warm with him
Now filled with filth and foul disease

As time wore on you proved
A debt-ridden drunken mess
Leaving my mother
A poor consumptive wretch
Oh Ohhhhh

And then you disappeared
Your gambling arrears
The only thing you left behind

And then the magistrate
Reclaimed our small estate
And my poor mother lost her mind

Then one day in spring
My dear sweet mother died
But before she did
I took her hand as she, dying, cried:
Oh Ohhhhh

"Find him, bind him
Tie him to a pole and break his fingers
to splinters
Drag him to a hole until he wakes up
naked
Clawing at the ceiling of his grave
*sigh*"

It took me fifteen years
To swallow all my tears
Among the urchins in the street

Until a priory
Took pity and hired me
To keep their vestry nice and neat

But never once in the employ
Of these holy men
Did I ever once turn my mind
From the thought of revenge
Oh Ohhhhh

One night I overheard
The Prior exchanging words
With a penitent whaler from the sea

The captain of his ship
Who matched you toe to tip
Was known for wanton cruelty

The following day
I shipped to sea
With a privateer

And in the whistle
Of the wind
I could almost hear...
Oh Ohhhhh

"Find him, bind him
Tie him to a pole and break his fingers
to splinters
Drag him to a hole until he wakes up
naked
Clawing at the ceiling of his grave

"There is one thing I must say to you
As you sail across the sea
Always, your mother will watch over you
As you avenge this wicked deed"

[haunting, sailor-esque musical interlude lead by mandolin, accordion and tuba]

And then that fateful night
We had you in our sight
After twenty months at sea

Your starboard flank abeam
I was getting my muskets clean
When came this rumbling from beneath

The ocean shook
The sky went black
And the captain quailed

And before us grew
The angry jaws
Of a giant whale

[instrumental noise]
Oh Ohhhhhhhhhh
[screaming]
Ohhhhh
[screaming]

Don't know how I survived
The crew all was chewed alive
I must have slipped between his teeth

But, O! What providence!
What divine intelligence!
That you should survive
As well as me

It gives my heart
Great joy
To see your eyes fill with fear

So lean in close
And I will whisper
The last words you'll hear
Ohh Ohhhhh

Surf's up
In the sun I'm waiting for the day
Having fun in warm far away
Moonlight nights water seems so clear
Oh city lights while I'm still waiting here
In the sun it's for everyone
In the sun were gonna have some fun
In the sun were gonna shoot the tube
I'll do it for you my paka lola luau love
New York isle is covered by gray
Concrete piles blues play my way
Tropic haze pineapple sky
Perfect wave hurricane eye
In the sun it's for everyone
In the sun were gonna have some fun
In the sun were gonna shoot the tube
I'll do it for you my paka lola luau love
In the sun it's for everyone
In the sun were gonna have some fun
In the sun were gonna shoot the tube
I'll do it for you my paka lola luau love
Where is my wave?

No, I don't believe in luck
No, I don't believe in circumstance no more
Accidents never happen in a perfect world
So I won't believe in luck
I saw you walking in the dark
So I slipped behind your footsteps for a while
Caught you turning round the block
Fancy meeting in a smaller world, after all

Accidents never happen, could have planned it all
Precognition my ears
Accidents never happen in a perfect world
Complications disappear

Now you love me
I, yeah, I can tell
I never lie, I never cry
And you, you knew so well

Like the Magi on the hill
I can divinate your presence from afar
And I'll follow you until
I can bring you to a perfect world

Accidents never happen, could have planned it all
Precognition my ears
Accidents never happen in a perfect world
Complications disappear

Accidents never happen in a perfect world
Accidents never happen
Accidents never happen in a perfect world
Accidents never happen

I am doll eyes
Doll mouth, doll legs
I am doll arms, big veins, dog bait
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, they really do
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, but I do too
I want to be the girl with the most cake
I love him so much it just turns to hate
I fake it so real, I am beyond fake
And someday, you will ache like I ache
Someday, you will ache like I ache

I am doll parts
Bad skin, doll heart
It stands for knife
For the rest of my life
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, they really do
Yeah, they really want you, they really want you, but I do, too
I want to be the girl with the most cake
He only loves those things because he loves to see them break
I fake it so real, I am beyond fake
And someday, you will ache like I ache
Someday you will ache like I ache

Secret of Love - Barcera

Alone in the darkness
Alone with my tears
I've lost my illusions
I'm lost in my fears

Alone in the darkness
Alone in the night
I'm waiting for you
And I'm waiting for light

But when the night is gone
Life will still go on
And the darkness comes again
And the bright blue sky turns to gray
And I wonder why I can't forget

It's the secret of love
It's the secret of dreams
I've been lost in my fears
Love is not what it seems
It's a secret that I need you here by my side
Never can get enough
It's the secret, the secret, the secret of love

(It's the secret of love)
(Secret of love)

Alone in the darkness
I'm waiting for you
I cry for the day
When my dreams will come true

Alone in the darkness
Alone I fall asleep
It's hard to forget
When my love is so deep

When the night is gone
Life will still go on
And the darkness comes again
And the bright blue sky turns to gray
And I wonder why I can't forget

It's the secret of love
It's the secret of dreams
I've been lost in my fears
Love is not what it seems
It's a secret that I need you here by my side
Never can get enough
It's the secret, the secret, the secret of love

(Secret of love)

"What Do Ya Think About That" by Montgomery Gentry

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QytPoRLEhF0[/youtube]

I heard it through the grapevine
My new neighbor don't like my big red barn
A '47 Ford, bullet holes in the door
Broke down motor in the front yard
I got half a mind to paint a plywood sign
And nail it up on a knotty pine tree
Saying I was here first
This is my piece of dirt
And your rambling don't rattle me

Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day
Say, blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Gotta let it roll off of my back
I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that

I wear what I want to, overalls, work boots
Crank my music up loud
Like to sling a little mud in my four wheel drive
Trek it all into town

Shoot a little eight ball down at the pool hall
Drink a beer with my friends
Now don't judge me and I won't judge you
Cause we all get judged in the end

Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin a perfect day
say a blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Gotta let it roll off of my back
I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that

Some people care about what other people think
Worry about what they say
Let a little gossip
Coming from a loose lip ruin my perfect day
Say a blah, blah, blah, just a jacking their jaws
Gotta let it roll off of my back
I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that

Say, I don't give a damn what other people think
What do ya think about that
TELL ME WHAT DO YA THINK ABOUT TAHT
What do ya think about that
WHAT DO YA THINK ABOUT THAT

Paint It Black

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby it just happens ev'ryday

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and it has been painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not forsee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm...

I wanna see it painted black, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah

Delays - Hooray

[YouTube sound quality doesn't do it justice - this song on the album on a good stereo is infinitely more immense than any compressed version could be]

Read this in context - it's about the singer Greg's OCD. :D



I put a tag on everything
It lets me know just where I've been
Call out these chains and get me home
I'm coming back but will you show?

Hooray, hooray it's not over
We have got all day to recover
And I'm on a roll so don't you be late
Too late too late, run for cover
There is not enough love to offer
And there's more to this than acting my age

I put a price on what you say
It lets me know that I'm ok
But I'm a garbage man tonight
I just don't believe my eyes

Hooray, hooray it's not over
We have got all day to recover
And I'm on a roll so don't you be late
Too late too late, run for cover
There is not enough love to offer
And there's more to this than acting my age

Oh you'll never believe
What I have seen
Whilst I was lost I found this place
Next to the ocean
A perfect fit for us
You're in so deep you cannot move
So let me in...

7 Years & 50 Days - Groove Coverage

7 years & 50 days
The time is passing by
Nothing in this world could be
As nice as you and I

And how could we break up like this?
And how could we be wrong?
So many years, so many days
And I still sing my song

Now I run to you, like I always do
When I close my eyes, I think of you
Such a lonely girl, such a lonely world
When I close my eyes I dream

I return to you, like I always do
When I close my eyes, I think of you
Such a lonely girl, such a lonely world
When I close my eyes I dream... of you

7 years and 50 days
Now just look at me
Am I the girl I used to be?
So then what do you see?

And how could we break up like this?
And how could we be wrong?
So many years, so many days
And I still sing my song

Now I run to you, like I always do
When I close my eyes, I think of you
Such a lonely girl, such a lonely world
When I close my eyes I dream

I return to you, like I always do
When I close my eyes, I think of you
Such a lonely girl, such a lonely world
When I close my eyes I dream... of you

I have forgiven Jesus-Morrissey

I was a good kid, I wouldn't do you no harm, I was a nice kid, With a nice paper round
Forgive me any pain, I may have brung to you, With God's help I know, I'll always be near to you
But Jesus hurt me, When he deserted me, but, I have forgiven you Jesus
For all the desire, You placed in me when there's nothing I can do with this desire

I was a good kid, Through hail and snow, I'd go just to moon you, I carried my heart in my hand
Do you understand, Do you understand

But Jesus hurt me, When he deserted me, but, I have forgiven you Jesus
For all of the love, You placed in me when there's no one I can turn to with this love

Monday - humiliation, Tuesday - suffocation, Wednesday - condescension, Thursday - is pathetic
By Friday life has killed me, By Friday life has killed me, Oh pretty one, Oh pretty one

Why did you give me so much desire, When there is nowhere I can go to offload this desire?
And why did you give me so much love in a loveless world, When there is no one I can turn to
To unlock all this love?
And why did you stick in self deprecating bones and skin?, Jesus do you hate me?
Why did you stick in self deprecating bones and skin?
Do you hate me?, Do you hate me?, Do you hate me?, Do you hate me?, Do you hate me?
