    Lyrics - Post Your Favorites

    This thread sort of derailed in the last ETS so perhaps we'll try to keep it simple. Post the lyrics and then a YouTube or other link to the song immediately after and that's it?

    One of my favorite songwriters ever ever ever. One of the most honest and sincere men I've ever met as well.

    ================================================

    'Non Populus' - Matthew Good

    Well it says: let it be unto you
    They all say: let it be unto you
    A mistake of the heart
    Let it be unto you
    Going to rip you apart
    But let it be unto you

    What you escape
    Let it be done to you
    What you take away
    Let it be done to you
    For what you war
    Let it be done to you
    What you ignore
    Let it be done to you

    Might have rubbed you the wrong way
    But that's all over now
    You know we could have stayed
    Instead of crawling off into the wilderness
    Hurled lighning down from the building
    Done something different

    Probably my favorite song:

    Have A Nice Life - Hunter

    Hunter, I'm laid out on the forest floor
    arrows in my back and sides
    down among the leaves and stones
    you can wear my skin as armor
    you can eat my flesh and bones
    leave nothing that is needed
    all I have is yours
    And I'll give myself up to your sharpened edges
    I no longer cling to my life
    yes, I'm finally giving in
    Teeth and hate end our relationship
    of course it's sad, but that's the way it is
    your violence always wins the day
    yes,
    your violence wins
    And I'll give myself up to your sharpened edges
    I no longer cling to my life
    yes, I'm finally giving in
    Oh, and you watch as the animals
    lay themselves
    down at your feet
    a thousand bared teeth
    a thousand bowed heads
    yes, they're begging you for
    death
    The Hunter does us all a great service
    and we've done so much to deserve it.

    Calling Sister Midnight: "You've got me reaching for the moon."
    Calling Sister Midnight: "You've got me playing the fool."
    Calling Sister Midnight.

    Calling Sister Midnight: "Can you hear me call?
    "Can you hear me well? Can you hear it at all?"

    Calling Sister Midnight: "Well, I'm an Idiot for you"
    Calling Sister Midnight: "I'm a breakage inside."
    Calling Sister Midnight.

    Calling Sister Midnight: "You know, I had a dream last night.
    "Mother was in my bed... and I made love to her.
    "Father, he gunned for me, hunted me with his six gun!"
    Calling Sister Midnight: "What can I do about my dreams?"

    Listen to me, Sister Midnight. You've got me walking in rags.
    Listen to me, Sister Midnight. You put a beggar in my heart.

    Hey, where are you, Sister Midnight?
    Can you hear me call? Can you hear me well?
    Can you hear me at all?

    Queen - Save Me

    It started off so well
    They said we made the perfect pair
    I clothed myself in your glory and your love
    How I loved you
    How I cried
    The years of care and loyalty
    Were nothing but a sham it seems
    The years belie we lived the lie
    "I love you 'til I die"


    Save me Save me Save me
    I can't face this life alone
    Save me Save me Save me
    I'm naked and I'm far from home


    The slate will soon be clean
    I'll erase the memories
    To start again with somebody new
    Was it all wasted
    All that love ?
    I hang my head and I advertise
    A soul for sale or rent
    I have no heart, I'm cold inside
    I have no real intent


    Save me Save me Save me
    I can't face this life alone
    Save me Save me
    Oh I'm naked and I'm far from home


    Each night I cry and still believe the lie
    I love you 'til I die

    This song will always have a special place in my heart. Not really a fan of Sleeping At Last but Ryan O'Neal is a super-cool dude from Illinois.

    SLEEPING AT LAST - UMBRELLAS


    I'll make you mine if you would have me.
    With a silver ring that will hug you tight,
    Our life begins.
    Our life begins with this.

    I'll prove my love if you would let me.
    Over and over and over again.

    We'll bring a child into this world
    And we'll say the one thing
    Everyone should hear:

    "You were meant for amazing things"

    Give me your hand, it's time.
    It's time to show new eyes their home.
    When fences divide our land,
    I would catch bullets with my bare hands

    Because you were meant for amazing things.

    I was recently bitten by the Unwound bug and have been listening to very little else since.
    ------------------
    UNWOUND - "Dragnalus"

    This song
    That song
    The song
    The song you're so bored with
    My life
    Your life
    This life
    Our lives you're so bored with
    Everything
    Anything
    Anywhere
    Nowhere
    Your
    Bored

    I don't feel strange
    I don't feel anything

    Yeah
    My town
    Your town
    This town
    The town you're so bored with
    T.V.
    Radio
    Video
    I know
    Bored
    My life
    Your life
    This life
    Our lives
    Your
    Bored

    I don't feel strange
    I don't feel anything
    Don't know you
    And I don't think I ever will
    This product really sucks
    We are another sitting


    ------------------
    Simple yet effective lyrics that perfectly match the *sound*.

    My friend Jeremy's (sadly now defunct) band CircleSquare.

    "Fight Sounds Part One"

    Tell your good friends
    You're gonna leave them
    Our bloodshot eyes white
    More proof the books lied

    No need to think when
    This crowd gets moving
    Bass beats and ball bats
    Heart beats and hand claps

    And your bad friends
    Are more important
    Don't turn those lights down
    Cause these are fight sounds

    I guess the last time I was struck by the lyrics of a song was when I was listening to "I Started A Joke" by the Bee Gees. It's a very beautifully written and sad song. Its meaning is, as so many great songs are, up to interpretation. But the precise meaning isn't so important, after all, because the emotion can't be denied.



    I started a joke, which started the whole world crying,
    but I didn't see that the joke was on me, oh no.

    I started to cry, which started the whole world laughing,
    oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

    I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
    and I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I'd said.

    Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
    oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

    I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
    and I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I'd said.

    'Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
    oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was one me.

    It's hard to choose, but I've always liked these.

    --------------------------

    I have come curiously close to the end, down
    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 and,
    A million light reflections pass over me.

    Its 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 wanna 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 you will come to find that we are all one mind,
    Capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable.
    Just let the light touch you,
    And let the words spill through,
    And let them pass right through,
    Bringing out our hope and reason.
    Before we pine away.

    --------------------------

    People hate on Connor Oberst but the guy has had some moments of real lyrical brilliance in my opinion.

    Death, data entry, ant hill law
    Encoded arc, our common cause
    Drink liquid clocks until I see God
    Crystal display, can't turn it off


    How people don't recognize Time Code as his best song his beyond me.

    You might like that particular song if you've never heard it. It's not really like anything else he's ever done, and I still hold out hope he'll start creating music more like it now that Bright Eyes is done.

    Never got into Bright Eyes until I saw them last year and they put on a good show, I looked into their back catalog and liked a great deal of what I heard. Really dig how blunt and awesome "The Calender Hung Itself" is:

    Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning when you start to raise your head?
    And does he sing to you incessantly from the space between your bed and wall?
    Does he walk around all day at school with his feet inside your shoes?
    Looking down every few steps to pretend he walks with you.
    Oh, does he know that place below your neck that is your favorite to be touched
    and does he cry through broken sentences like I love you far too much?

    Does he lay awake listening to your breath?
    Worried you smoke too many cigarettes.
    Is he coughing now on a bathroom floor?
    For every speck of tile there's a thousand more
    you won't ever see but most hold inside yourself eternally

    Well, I drug your ghost across the country and we plotted out my death.
    In every city, memories would whisper: "Here is where you rest."
    I was determined in Chicago but I dug my teeth into my knees
    and I settled for a telephone and sang into your machine.
    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
    You are my sunshine, my only sunshine

    And I kissed a girl with a broken jaw that her father gave to her.
    She had eyes bright enough to burn me. They reminded me of yours.
    And in a story told she was a little girl in a red-rouge, sun-bruised field
    and there were rows of ripe tomatoes where a secret was concealed.
    And it rose like thunder, clapped under our hands.
    And it stretched for centuries to a diary entry's end where I wrote,
    You make me happy oh!! when skies are gray
    You make me happy oh!! when skies are gray and gray and gray.

    Well the clock's heart it hangs inside its open chest with hands
    stretched towards the calendar hanging itself
    but I will not weep for those dying days.
    For all the ones who've left there's a few that stayed.
    And they found me here and pulled me from the grass where I was laid.

    Another fine example.

    And yeah, Bright Eyes was amazing when I saw them last year. I felt so out of place at the show though, because I was surrounded by teenage girls. Sad really, a decent band kind of ruined by hype and an annoying fanbase.

    And she's a killer
    And she's a keeper ...

    [verse 1]
    Am i blurry
    In your vision

    Was i just
    A poor decision

    Cut me open
    With precision

    & we'll finger
    The incision

    Tell me what have i done
    (quid pro quo)

    To watch you lose
    Control

    [tunnel]

    I will give you sanctuary
    In these hymns of Thanatos ...

    I will give you sanctuary!

    [verse 2]
    You want to
    See me burn
    I am living fire!

    You want to
    See me burn
    I am LIVING FIRE!

    You will know me
    By the scars i bare

    You will know me
    By the hate i swear

    You will know me
    By the scars i bare

    Shapeless vengeance!

    [tunnel]

    We are the 1000 children of death.

    We're in-between, on the fence
    Non-descript antagonists

    I'm in-between, on the fence
    Non-descript antagonist!

    I'll split you open
    & climb inside
    Lose myself
    Eaten alive

    We are the 1000 children of death!

    From seraphim!
    To nephilim!
    To exodus!

    [v3]
    She's picking ghostflowers
    From her soul

    She's clipping the wings
    Of fallen angels!

    She's picking ghostflowers
    From her soul

    She's tonguing splinters
    Of broken halos!

    You will know me
    By the scars i bare.

    You will know me
    By the hate i swear.

    You will know me
    By the scars i bare.

    YOU WILL KNOW ME!

    [bridge]

    From gelatin
    To specimen
    To emptiness

    I WILL BE AVENGED.
    I WILL BE AVENGED.

    These are the secrets
    That kill. that kill.
    That kill. that kill.
    That kill. that kill.
    That kill. that kill.

    We are the 1000 children of death

    Lyrics:
    And it sounds like...armageddon
    Sounds like...armageddon
    Sounds like...come and drink with me....
    Come and drink with me
    And I remember him fucking me,
    And I remember liking it,
    I didn't know any better...
    And I remember the smell, and the pain, and the shame...
    And I remember being afraid and thinking everyday,
    Every single day.. that it was my fault...
    Oh, but what happened to that little girl?
    Who used to dream of one day ruling the world,
    Who used to draw pretty pictures in my room---beneath the moon
    Destroying to create
    Softly praying to "God"
    What do I do now?
    What do I do now?
    As I secretely masturbate...
    But then I'd hear his hooves coming down the floor
    With a Bible in his hand...
    Softly opening my door and he'd say...
    DAUGHTER! The day of your attonement is due!
    Well there's 3 million sinners out there...
    and that includes you!
    No daddy, don't... no daddy, don't...
    LEAVE ME ALONE! LEAVE ME ALONE! LEAVE ME ALONE!
    NO, I DON'T WANT TO BE FREE! NO, I DON'T WANT TO BE FREE!
    SO TAKE YOUR DICK OUT OF ME!
    YOUR DICK OUT OF ME!
    I'm bleeding, it's not fair...
    You see, there's this little place I like to go...
    I like to run and hide--deep inside,
    Where all the nightmares are real, and all the monsters come alive,
    Oh, but the things I've seen in soft, soft visions and terrifying prophecies,
    Like serpents on the take and gods coming in all sizes and shapes
    Nothing seems fulfilling anymore..
    Well your temples are swollen in deceit and the body of your missionary,
    He's rotting... rotting in defeat mama?
    MAMA!
    Are the aliens coming to take us away? (mama?)
    Is armageddon gonna happen again today?
    LOOK WHAT HE DID TO ME! WHY DID YOU DO IT TO ME?!
    HOW COULD YOU DO IT TO ME! WHY DID YOU DO IT TO ME?!
    I will not cry... I will not cry...
    I--PREFER--TO--DIE! than live--this life--of LIES!
    KILL WHAT YOU CAN ---- CHALLENGE EVERYTHING
    Vengeance is mine...
    Hey, I'm sorry baby...
    please come back inside...we can laugh a little... and live and die,
    no wait. see, eye got this hot pot of jonestown tea
    And it's been brewing for you and me,
    Oh, it only takes one sip,
    Come one baby,
    Surrender your lips,
    I can take you someplace nice...
    I can take you...someplace NICE!
    Breed my disease, be my disease...
    Breed my disease, be my disease...
    and vengeance will be mine
    It's closer than u think...
    So I entered his room at 32 past noon
    With my little ritual knife...
    I cut out his tounge
    Liberated his wife
    She loved me for it other world woman,
    Well, thats what she called me (Destroyer),
    the one who sets you free, (come and drink with me)
    We all die like cartoons, surrender your children,
    kids who like to kill, lies...

    Favorite song of all time, The Seed of a Lie by Gary Numan (note: this is the extended mix)

    I'm a ghost in the dark and I'm yours
    I belong in the past and I'm yours
    Like a song you forget, and I'm yours
    Like a dream in the night, and I'm yours


    The wrong place?
    The wrong time?
    I don't know
    The wrong face?
    Yours or mine?
    I don't know


    Like a tear when you sleep, I'll be yours
    Like a scar that won't fade, I'll be yours
    Like a pain in the cold, I'll be yours
    Like a fear in the heart, I'll be yours


    The wrong word when you cry
    I will be
    Like the seed of a lie
    I will be
    Like the germ of disease
    I will be
    Like the last one who cared
    I will be


    Like your shadow
    I will haunt you
    Do you remember?
    I said to you
    "Love is a mountain
    But harder to climb
    It should be forever
    But love is unkind
    To me
    Don't let me down"


    And you let me down

    I've searched the holy books
    I tried to unravel the mystery of Jesus Christ, the saviour
    I've read the poets and the analysts
    Searched through the books on human behaviour
    I travelled this world around
    For an answer that refused to be found
    I don't know why and I don't know how
    But she's nobody's baby now

    I loved her then and I guess I love her still
    Hers is the face I see when a certain mood moves in
    She lives in my blood and skin
    Her wild feral stare, her dark hair
    Her winter lips as cold as stone
    Yeah, I was her man
    But there are some things love won't allow
    I held her hand but I don't hold it now
    I don't know why and I don't know how
    But she's nobody's baby now

    This is her dress that I loved best
    With the blue quilted violets across the breast
    And these are my many letters
    Torn to pieces by her long-fingered hand
    I was her cruel-hearted man
    And though I've tried to lay her ghost down
    She's moving through me, even now
    I don't know why and I don't know how
    But she's nobody's baby now
    She's nobody's baby now
    Nobody's baby now
    She's nobody's baby now

    "Nobody's Baby Now", by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

    XTC- Dear God

    Dear god, hope you get the letter and...

    I pray you can make it better down here
    I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
    But all the people that you made in your image
    See them starving in the street
    'Cause they don't get enough to eat from god
    I can't believe in you

    Dear god, sorry to disturb you but...
    I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
    We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
    And all the people that you made in your image
    See them fighting in the street
    'Cause they can't make opinions meet about god
    I can't believe in you

    Did you make disease and the diamond blue?
    Did you make mankind after we made you?
    And the devil too!

    Dear god don't know if you noticed but...
    Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
    And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look
    And all the people that you made in your image
    still believing that junk is true
    Well I know it ain't, and so do you
    Dear god
    I can't believe in
    I don't believe

    I won't believe in heaven or hell
    No saints, no sinners, no devil as well
    No pearly gates, no thorny crown
    You're always letting us humans down
    The wars you bring, the babes you drown
    Those lost at sea and never found
    And it's the same the whole world 'round
    The hurt I see helps to compound
    That father, son and holy ghost
    Is just somebody's unholy hoax
    And if you're up there you'll perceive
    That my heart's here upon my sleeve
    If there's one thing I don't believe in

    It's you
    Dear god

    Nice thread!

    Chevelle - The Meddler


    You had that nighttime confidence / Yet again
    Like when you tear us all to bits / Yet again
    If you really want advice here / You're too much like a wall
    If you're gonna light those fires / We're all up in arms again

    Well I don't belong here / Don't fit your style
    Felt your left foot / Now meet my right
    See now over this, you meddler / Feed off all the rest, you meddler
    Talking so close, you bring to mind / It's no fun to be behaving
    But you really lit a fire / All up in arms again
    Why don't you feed off all the rest

    Well, I don't belong here / Don't fit your style
    Felt your left foot / Now meet my right
    It's now or never / More difficult
    Those midnight answers / And stray arrows

    Never, never / Lean on you
    Clever, clever / One on two
    You're mine / Finite / Imagine this
    It's sad / To say / It's simple / When still we want to watch

    Well, I don't belong here / Don't fit your style
    Felt your left foot / Now meet my right
    It's now or never / More difficult
    Those midnight answers / And stray arrows
    I don't belong...

    And just for the record
    Just so you know
    I did not believe
    That you could sink so low
    You think that you can beat them
    I know that you won't
    You think you have everything
    But no, you don't

    I am a Cat- Shonen Knife
    Sometimes I step into timeless zone
    And I lose my way
    I don't know where I am
    Sometimes I feel like I'm in the Milky Way
    And I lose myself
    I don't know who I am
    I discover whiskers of a cat in a timeless zone
    And I put them on my face
    In a moment I become a sweet little cat
    And I dance on a flying saucer
    I Am A Cat
    I discover ears of a cat in the Milky Way
    And I put them on my head
    In a moment I become a sweet little cat
    And I dance on a flying saucer
    I Am A Cat

    and also the trees- virus meadow



    Rattled chime, slow ringing echo
    Roll around in virus meadow
    Suck enchanted nightshade twine
    Hear the bells beneath us chime

    Sinking sermon, priest head murmurs
    Holy words across the meadows
    Kissed the plagues' black rolling hand
    Through his lips the virus sang

    And the rooks, they seemed to follow him
    Wherever he goes
    Flapping in the flat sky
    Shrieking in the spire
    Hanging from the lead sky
    Dangling from the sun
    The rooks, they seemed to follow him
    Wherever he goes

    Nodding thistle, english sun dew
    Swansneck woman, child-bed meadow
    Aching shoulders sink and grow
    As the bells from ditches toll

    And the smeared skin wrapped limbs
    Of the night brothers
    Struggling.... crawling
    Through the empty crack of morning
    Of the night brothers...
    Of the night brothers....

    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

    And in my dreams you're alive and you're crying
    As your mouth moves in mine, soft and sweet
    Rings of flowers 'round your eyes and I'll love you
    For the rest of your life when you're ready

    Brother, see we are one in 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
    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

    I was more or less done with lyrics for a couple of years, I listened to lots of ambient and jazz... but lately lyrics are making a comeback with me, here's the "comeback song":

    I'm mad...and that's a fact
    I found out...animals don't help
    Animal think...they're pretty smart
    Shit on the ground...see in the dark.

    They wander around like a crazy dog
    Make a mistake in the parking lot
    Always bumping into things
    Always let you down down down down.

    They're never there when you need them
    They never come when you call them
    They're never there when you need them
    The nevere come when you call them down down down down.

    I know the animals...are laughing at us
    They don't even know...what a joke is
    I won't follow...animal's advice
    I don't care...if they're laughing at us.

    They're never there when you need them
    They never come when you call them
    They're never there when you need them
    The nevere come when you call them down down down down.

    They say they don't need money
    They're living on nuts and berries
    They say animals don't worry
    You know animals are hairy?
    They think they know what's best
    They're making a fool of us
    They ought to be more careful
    They're setting a bad example
    They have untroubled lives
    They think everything's nice
    They like to laugh at people
    They're setting a bad example
    (go ahead) laugh at me.

    (Talking Heads - Animals)

    Black - Pearl Jam

    Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay

    Were laid spread out before me as her body once did
    All five horizons revolved around her soul
    As the earth to the sun
    Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
    Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
    Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
    And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
    Of what was everything?
    Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed Everything...

    I take a walk outside
    I'm surrounded by some kids at play
    I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
    Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
    I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
    How quick the sun can, drop away
    And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything
    All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...
    All the love gone bad turned my world to black
    Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I will be...yeah...
    Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
    In somebody else's sky, but why, why, why
    Can't it be, can't it be mine

    Acid Bath: Venus Blue

    Creeping like frost
    As slow as grave moss
    Like drowning in dry oceans of bone dust
    I taste the wreckage of crumbling faces
    I know the pale thing in the darkest of places
    I remember blood from the thighs of the mother
    As everything is eaten by another
    How much more must we bleed her
    I cut their throats while they slept, I wept
    I peel back my skull for you
    Yes I do
    Slow desolation like a funeral procession
    The lovely one screams like she's caught between stations
    I eat the razor, a mouthful of God's flesh
    Sweating this blackness,
    I am shitting this cold death
    I remember blood from the thighs of the mother
    As everything is eaten by another
    How much more must we bleed her
    I cut their throats while they slept, I wept
    I peel back my skull for you
    Yes I do
    DEAD VENUS BLUE
    Love is rotting on the vine
    Crumbling in God's sunshine
    I am dying all the time
    Point me at the sky... sky
    How much more must we bleed her
    I cut their throats while they slept, I wept
    I peel back my skull for you
    Yes I do
    DEAD VENUS BLUE
    How much more must we bleed her
    I cut their throats while they slept, I wept
    I peel back my skull for you
    Yes I do
    DEAD VENUS BLUE
    I taste the wreckage of crumbling faces
    I know the pale thing in the darkest of places

    QotSA - Broken Box

    I've got wine & so do you
    Mine came with a cork
    I wish yours did too

    Everyone just loves you so
    Well hurray!
    Now you know where to go

    In my head you're all brand new
    I guess you're really all the same
    In my head you're all brand new
    Tell your new boy where i came
    In my head you're all brand new
    I just didn't want what you gave
    In my head you're all brand new
    Go & find yourself another slave

    There you are
    Ooohh you're so in love, just like juliette
    Well guess what?
    That's one thing that you can for-fucking-get

    Tears from the sky
    In pools of pain
    Well baby tonite, i'm gonna go & dance in the rain

    In my head you're all brand new
    I guess you're really all the same
    In my head you're all brand new
    Tell your new boy where i came
    In my head you're all brand new
    Take that broken pussy elsewhere
    In my head you're all brand new
    Save it baby, i don't care

    anddddd, You got a killer scene there, man.

    I don't mean to make obscene
    But even the mob, know what the hell i mean
    The knot is tight, on my blindfold
    I got my flesh full of blood, i hate rock n roll
    Some think too much, then come too soon
    I just curse the sun, so i can howl at the moon

    Don't wanna love you no more
    Don't wanna love you less
    I wanna be crushed by your sweet caress
    What's the fuckin' difference, we all gonna die
    You gonna do something killer?
    C'mon give it a try

    Got no good plans but a good idea
    Let's put this town in my rearview mirror
    Yeah, i got enemies, but they don't know
    They won't get no glory on that side of the hole

    Were are united, by drifting alone
    This is the army of none, got no flag, got no home
    Just witches & scabs, an awful mess, i confess...
    Let's do it again.

    Lullabies has the best 3 closing tracks on earth ever.
