Audioslave ~ Out of Exile

When I first came to this island
that I called by my own name
I was happy in this fortress,
in my exile I remained
But the hours grew so empty
and the ocean sent her waves
In the figure of a woman
and she pulled me out to sea

[Chorus]
When you come down to take me home
send my soul away
When you come round you'll make me whole
send my soul away

On the altar of a sunrise
was a wedding in the waves
And inside her shone a young light
from her labor I was saved
Though I've traveled long in darkness
in her harvest I'm embraced

[Chorus]
When you come down to take me home
send my soul away
When you come round you'll make me whole
send my soul away

Now the spires and the gables
grew in orchards to the sky
And the blessings on my table
multiply and divide

[Chorus]
When you come down to take me home
send my soul away
Yeah when you come round you'll make me whole
send my soul away
Yeah when you come down to take me home
when you come round you'll make me whole
Yeah when you come down to take me home
Send my soul away

Devils Dance floor- flogging Molly


Her breath began to speak
As she stood right in front of me
The colour of her eyes
Were the colour of insanity
Crushed beneath her wave
Like a ship, I could not reach her shore
We're all just dancers on the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Pressed against her face
I could feel her insecurity
Her mother'd been a drunk
And her father was obscurity
But nothin' ever came
From a life that was a simple one
So pull yourself together girl
And have a little fun

Well she took me by the hand
I could see she was a fiery one
Her legs ran all the way
Up to heaven and past Avalon
Tell me somethin' girl, what it is you have in store
She said come with me now
On the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

The apple now is sweet
Oh much sweeter than it ought to be
Another little bite
I don't think there is much hope for me
The sweat beneath her brow
Travels all the way
An' headin' south
This bleedin' heart's cryin'
Cause there's no way out

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, a little more next to me
Swing a little more, little more o'er the merry-o
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil's Dance Floor

Nine Inch Nails-  Perfect Drug

I got my head, but my head is unraveling
Cant keep control, cant keep track of where its traveling
I got my heart but my heart is no good
And youre the only one thats understood
I come along but I dont know where youre taking me
I shouldnt go but youre reaching back and shaking me
Turn off the sun, pull the stars from the sky
The more I give to you, the more I die

And I want you
And I want you
And I want you
And I want you

You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug

You make me hard, when Im all soft inside
I see the truth, when Im all stupid eyed
The arrow goes straight through my heart
Without you everything just falls apart

My blood wants to say hello to you
My feelings want to get inside of you
My soul is so afraid to realize
Every little word is a lack of me

And I want you
And I want you
And I want you
And I want you

You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
(whispering)
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the perfect drug, the perfect drug
You are the perfect drug, the drug, the perfect drug

Take me, with you
Take me, with you
Take me, with you
(continues in backround)
Without you, without you everything falls apart
Without you, its not as much fun to pick up the pieces
Without you, without you everything falls apart
Without you, its not as much fun to pick up the pieces
Its not as much fun to pick up the pieces
Its not as much fun to pick up the pieces
Without you, without you everything falls apart
Without you, its not as much fun to pick up the pieces

Toad the Wet Sprocket - All Things In Time


call me up when you need
strangers often deceive
and there's something so freeing
to call out a name
and someone's believing

i've been changing my mind
through with looking behind
it's a crash course in life
the best you can do is get by
no getting out alive
i'll hold a light for you to see
all things in time, all you'll ever need

something i can't explain
keeps me running, afraid
and every day
looks me in the face and says
"who'd you think you were, anyway?"
if you'll hold a light for me to see
all things in time, all we'll ever need
well, you told me so
that we'd seen all this before
so what is it that keeps us coming back for more?

i'll hold a light for you to see
all things in time, all you'll ever need
all things in time, all we'll ever need

Without your pulling it, the tide comes in,
Without your twirling it, the earth can spin.
Without your pushing them, the clouds roll by.
If they can do without you, ducky, so can I!

This shining city built of gold, a far cry from innocence
There's more than meets the eye round here look to the waters of the deep,
A city of evil,
There sat a seven-headed beast, Ten horns raised from his head,
Symbolic woman sits on his throne but hatred strips her and leaves her naked
The Beast and the Harlot.

She's a dwelling place for demons, She's a cage for every unclean spirit
Every filthy bird and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings,
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

The city dressed in jewels and gold, fine linen, myrrh and pearls,
Her plagues will come all at once as her mourners watch her burn,
Destroyed in an hour,
Merchants and captains of the world, sailors, navigators too,
Will weep and mourn this loss with their sins piled to the sky,
The Beast and the Harlot.

She's a dwelling place for demons, She's a cage for every unclean spirit
Every filthy bird and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating with our kings,
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

The day has come for all us sinners,
If you're not a servant you'll be struck to the ground,
Flee the burning, Greedy city,
Looking back on her to see there's nothin' around.

I don't believe in fairy tales and no one wants to go to hell,
You've made the wrong decision and it's easy to see,
Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us,
Your welcome to the city where your future is set, forever.

She's a dwelling place for demons, She's a cage for every unclean spirit
Every filthy bird and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating, With our kings,
Fallen now is Babylon the Great.

She's a dwelling place for demons, She's a cage for every unclean spirit
Every filthy bird and makes us drink the poisoned wine to fornicating, With our kings,

Emile Autumn- How strange

When you are sleeping do you dream of me
How strange, how strange
'Cause you know what they say
About the visions in your head and what they mean
How strange, how strange
That you should feel that way

I'm not living in an ordinary world
'Cause I'm not your ordinary good girl
And I don't believe in playing like I know that game
You're not heading for an ordinary love
'Cause I'm not the one that you should think of
And I'm not a prize that you can claim

You know I think it's strange
Just a little bit deranged
That you think I'm gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you dream
How strange

I'm more than happy in my candlelight
How strange, how strange
That you should come to my dominion
In the middle of the darkest night
How strange, how strange
That you should even try

I'm not living in an ordinary world
'Cause I'm not your ordinary good girl
And I don't believe in playing like I know that game
You're not heading for an ordinary love
'Cause I'm not the one that you should think of
And I'm not a prize that you can claim

You know I think it's strange
Just a little bit deranged
That you think I'm gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

Just a little bit deranged
That you think I'm gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me

Supernatural, yes it's true
Tell me what are you gonna do
About this love
Are you strong enough
To love me for the way I am
I don't think you understand
That you can't hold me in your hand
If you want me
You had better find a way to show me
But don't you think you know me
'Cause I'm not looking for a boy to call my own
I'll do just fine alone

You know I think it's strange
Just a little bit deranged
That you think I'm gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

You know I think it's strange
That you think I'm gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

I don't come when you call
I don't try to be nice
I don't care afterall
I don't take your advice
I don't answer your prayers
I don't do as you say
Love if you really care
You'd better find another way

You know I think it's strange
That you think I'm gonna change to make you happy
If you can tell me why
I should wait around then I
May be coming down
But until then this means
You can see me in your dreams

When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you
When you are sleeping do you dream

La Familia (Guy Sigsworth Remix) - Mirah

http://media.imeem.com/m/kPodgadHJVmirah-la-familia-guy-sigsworth-remix/

Hey friends don't you think you better cool it down
You're always gettin' curious and leavin' town
You know i like it being in your family
I wonder what would happen if nobody left
We'd all stick around if we'd all stick around
And here's a question that's been tested:
Tell me, if we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend forever?

If we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend?

Hey friend listen up their playing our song
On the radio, do you have to go?
I really like it, this rock and roll
Makes me want a little sugar in my bowl
It's like the glory days, it's like a fortune sold

And here's a question that's been tested:
Tell me, if we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend forever?

If we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend?

Let's none of us forget about who we are
So choose a path and follow it
Take a pill and swallow it
None of us forget about who we are
It's not forever we can fool around in the dark

If we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend forever?

If we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend forever?
Forever (x8)

There's not a word yet
For old friends who've just met.


- Paul Williams, "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday"

Castle towers, falling flowers, feasting through the night
Round about the sake cup, glittering in moonlight.
Shining past the ancient pines, through an outstretched bough,
Moonlight of so long ago - where is that light now?


- Rentaro Taki, "Kojo no Tsuki" (My clumsy attempt at combining a few translations and setting them to rhyme and scan)

Eleven Shades of Red
By: Samantha Tobey

http://media.imeem.com/m/OHwSxXv7uWsamantha-tobey-eleven-shades-of-red/


Eleven shades of red
All different
I wrote this song for you
And I don't even know your name

When were my eyes last sleeping
Thinking of you all the time
I talk to myself
Stop stuttering
You bring all of this on yourself
You bring all of this on yourself

Oh, I
Was a million miles away
Oh, I
Could've watched you smile for days
I'm the one you wanted
Not the one you started

When I was four
Dressed up in my mother's clothes
My angels crash and fall
You bring all of this on yourself
You bring all of this on yourself

Oh, I
Was a million miles away
Oh, I
Could've watched you smile for days
I'm the one you wanted
Not the one you started

I'm the one you wanted

Eleven shades of red
All different
I wrote this song for you
And I don't even know your name

"Wise Men"
James Blunt

She said to me, "Go steady on me.
Won't you tell me what the Wise Men said?
When they came down from Heaven,
Smoked nine 'til seven,
All the shit that they could find,
But they couldn't escape from you,
Couldn't be free of you,
And now they know there's no way out,
And they're really sorry now for what they've done,
They were three Wise Men just trying to have some fun."

Look who's alone now,
It's not me. It's not me.
Those three Wise Men,
They've got a semi by the sea.
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?

Really sorry now,
They weren't to know.
They got caught up in your talent show,
With you pernickety little bastards in your fancy dress,
Who just judge each other and try to impress,
But they couldn't escape from you,
Couldn't be free of you,
And now they know there's no way out,
And they're really sorry now for what they've done,
They were three Wise Men just trying to have some fun.

Look who's alone now,
It's not me. It's not me.
Those three Wise Men,
They've got a semi by the sea.
Got to ask yourself the question,
Where are you now?

"Out Of My Mind"
James Blunt

Judging by the look on the organ-grinder,
He'll judge me by the fact that my face don't fit.
It's touching that the monkey sits on my shoulder.
He's waiting for the day when he gets me,
But I don't need no alibi - I'm a puppet on a string.
I just need this stage to be seen.
We all need a pantomime to remind us what is real.
Hold my eye and know what it means.

I'm out of my mind.

I just need this stage to be seen.
Will you be a friend of mine to remind me what is real?
Hold my heart and see that it bleeds.

Far Away

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]

So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
'Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long

So keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go

Dead Enough for Life
By: Icon of Coil

http://media.imeem.com/m/q2zMMZDthBicon-of-coil-dead-enough-for-life/

Prove and disprove
Efficiency of prayer
Supposed to be harmless
Can never get enough

I'm the three-head watchdog
This, my revelation
My only decease
A manifest of life

If I could reach through, catch you
Make you understand
If I'm not dead enough for life
Am I alive enough for death?

A gift from the unknown
Promises they gave us
Rejection of faith
An eye for this purpose

Emotional images
Drawn with a single line
Our methods are unsound
A life I cannot offer
I cannot offer

Josh Kelley - "Two Cups Of Coffee"

Two cups of coffee in the morning
Two days till I stop feelin' blue
Two chairs, one empty in the corner
I got too much me and not enough of you
I got too much me and not enough of you

Two thousand miles away I'm boarding
Two crazy people next to me
Two shots of vodka I am pouring
I got too much me and not enough of you
I got too much me and not enough of you

Hold on tight
Hold on tight because the ship is sailin'
One more night till I can lie into my lady
Precious lady

One day we are gonna get married (Married)
One day I'll show you how I do (I do baby, baby, oh)
One love is all this heart is yearning for
I got too much of me and not enough of you
I got too much of me and not
Too much of me and not enough of
Too much of me and not enough of you

Oh, I got too much of me and not enough
Oh, I got too much of me and not enough of you
Baby, baby, baby
I got too much of me and not enough of you
I'm gonna hold you darlin'
Oh hey
Baby I got too much of me
I love you
Gonna hold you darlin' (Gonna hold you darlin'!)
Love you, love you

One day we are gonna get married

Toad The Wet Sprocket - Walk on the Ocean Video

We spotted the ocean at the head of the trail
Where are we going, so far away
And somebody told me that this is the place
Where everything's better, everything's safe
Walk on the ocean
Step on the stones
Flesh becomes water
Wood becomes bone
And half and hour later we packed up our things
We said we'd send letters and all those little things
And they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same
It seemed they'd already forgotten we'd came

Now we're back at the homestead
Where the air makes you choke
And people don't know you
And trust is a joke
We don't even have pictures
Just memories to hold
That grow sweeter each season
As we slowly grow old

Toad the Wet Sprocket-Whatever I Fear/Fly from Heaven

Theres almost nothing left
You eat my kind for breakfast
What did I expect?
To come here and find anyone?
Find open arms to greet me
And friends to feed me
I sicken myself so much
And you eat my kind for breakfast
You eat my kind

Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whenever I let my guard down, whatever I was ignoring
Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whatever I have been given, whatever I have been

Seeing myself this way
I am a monster I believe
And seeing is believing
Is there no doubt left
When I poison myself
And poison leaves no appetite
I sicken myself so much
I sicken myself so

Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whenever I let my guard down, whatever I was ignoring
Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whatever I have been given, whatever I have been

Did we expect these things to change
By waking up and suddenly there they are
And all I needs a starting place
And nothing ever seemed so hard...

Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whenever I let my guard down, whatever I was ignoring
Whatever I fear the most is whatever I see before me
Whatever I have been given, whatever I have been

Madeleine Peyroux - Between The Bars

drink up, baby, stay up all night
the things you could do, you won't but you might
the potential you'll be, that you'll never see
the promises you'll only make

drink up with me now and forget all about the pressure of days
do what I say and I'll make you okay and drive them away
the images stuck in your head

people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

drink up, baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars where I'm seeing you
there with your hands in the air, waiting to finally be caught

drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
keep you apart deep in my heart separate from the rest
where I like you the best and keep the things you forgot

the people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
that push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

The Velvet Underground - Femme Fatale

Here she comes, you better watch your step
She's going to break your heart in two, it's true
It's not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down, what a clown

'Cause everybody knows (She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease (She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

You're put down in her book
You're number 37, have a look
She's going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
Little boy, she's from the street
Before you start, you're already beat
She's gonna play you for a fool, yes it's true

'Cause everybody knows (She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease (She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

The Velvet Underground - Pale Blue Eyes


Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby you just make me mad
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountain top
Thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything
I've had but couldn't keep
I've had but couldn't keep
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

If I could make the world as pure and strange as what I see
I'd put you in the mirror I put in front of me
I put in front of me
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Skip a life completely, stuff it in a cup
She said money is like us in time
It lies but can't stand up
Down for you is up
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

It was good what we did yesterday
And I'd do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves you're my best friend
But it's truly, truly a sin
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Semi-Charmed Life
-Third Eye Blind

(I'M SEEING THEM IN APRIL! WHEEEEEEEE!)

I'm packed and I'm holding,
I'm smiling, she's living, she's golden and
she lives for me, She says she lives for me,
Ovation, She's got her own motivation,
she comes round and she goes down on me,
And I make her smile, It's like a drug for you,
Do ever what you want to do,
Coming over you,
Keep on smiling,
what we go through.
One stop to the rhythm that divides you,
And I speak to you like the chorus to the verse,
Chop another line like a coda with a curse,
And I come on like a freak show takes the stage.
We give them the games we play, she said,
I want something else, to get me through this,
Semi-charmed kind of life,
I want something else,
I'm not listening when you say, Good-bye.

The sky it was gold, it was rose,
I was taking sips of it through my nose,
And I wish I could get back there,
Some place back there,
Smiling in the pictures you would take,
Doing crystal myth,
Will lift you up until you break,
It won't stop,
I won't come down, I keep stock,
With a tick tock rhythm and a bump for the drop,
And then I bumped up. I took the hit I was given,
Then I bumped again,
And then I bumped again.
How do I get back there to,
The place where I fell asleep inside you?
How do I get myself back to,
The place where you said,
I want something else to get me through this,
semi-charmed kind of life,
I want something else,
I'm not listening when you say, good-bye,

I believe in the sand beneath my toes,
The beach gives a feeling,
An earthy feeling,
I believe in the faith that grows,
And the four right chords can make me cry,
When I'm with you I feel like I could die.
And that would be all right,
All right, When the plane came in,
She said she was crashing,
The velvet it rips,
In the city we tripped,
On the urge to feel alive,
But now I'm struggling to survive,
The days you were wearing,
That velvet dress,
You're the priestess,
must confess,
Those little red panties,
They pass the test,
Slide up around the belly,
Face down on the mattress,
One,
Now you hold me,
And we're broken.
Still it's all that I want to do.
Feel myself with a head made of the ground,
I'm scared but I'm not coming down.
And I won't run for my life,
She's got her jaws just locked now in smile
but nothing is all right,
All right, I want something else,
To get me through this,
Semi-charmed kind of life,
I want something else,
I'm not listening when you say,
good-bye.

Better Days
~ Goo Goo Dolls

And you ask me what I want this year
And I try to make this kind and clear
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days
Cuz I don't need boxes wrapped in strings
And desire and love and empty things
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

And it's someplace simple where we could live
And something only you can give
And thats faith and trust and peace while we're alive
And the one poor child that saved this world
And there's 10 million more who probably could
If we all just stopped and said a prayer for them

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

I wish everyone was loved tonight
And somehow stop this endless fight
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days

So take these words
And sing out loud
Cuz everyone is forgiven now
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again
Cuz tonight's the night the world begins again

Meja - All 'Bout The Money (audio only)

Sometimes I find another world inside my mind
When I realise the crazy things we do
It makes me feel ashamed to be alive
It makes me wanna run away and hide

It's all 'bout the money
It's all 'bout the dum dum du du du dum
I don't think it's funny to see us fade away
It's all 'bout the money
It's all 'bout the dum dum du du du dum
And I think we got it all wrong anyway

We find strange ways of showing them how much we really care
When in fact we just don't seem to care at all
This pretty world is getting out of hand
So tell me how we fail to understand?

It's all 'bout the money
It's all 'bout the dum dum du du du dum
I don't think it's funny to see us fade away
It's all 'bout the money
It's all 'bout the dum dum du du du dum
And I think we got it all wrong anyway

Androgyny, Garbage

When everything is going wrong
And you can't see the point in going on
Well nothing in life is set in stone
There's nothing that can't be turned around

Nobody wants to feel alone
And everybody wants to love someone
Out of the tree go pick a plum
Why can't we all just get along?

Boys in the girls room
Girls in the men's room
You free your mind in your androgyny
Boys in the parlor
Girls They're getting harder
I'll free your mind and your androgyny

No sweeter a taste that you could find
Than fruit hanging ripe upon the vine
There's never been an oyster so divine
A river deep that never runs dry

The birds and bees they hum along
Like treasures they twinkle in the sun
Get on board and have some fun
Take what you need to turn you on

Boys in the girls room
Girls in the men's room
You free your mind in your androgyny
Boys in the parlor
Girls they're getting harder
I'll free your mind and your androgyny

Behind closed doors and under stars
It doesn't matter where you are
Collecting jewels that catch your eye
Don't let a soulmate pass you by

Boys in the girls room
Girls in the men's room
You free your mind in your androgyny
Boys in the parlor
Girls they're getting harder
I'll free your mind and your androgyny

Boys, girls

Garbage - Androgyny
