The Wretched (link)

just a reflection
just a glimpse
just a little reminder
of all the what abouts
and all the might have
could have beens
another day
some other way
but not another reason to continue
and now you're one of us
the wretched

the hopes and prays
the better days
the far aways
forget it

it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
it didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?
it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
it didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?

now you know
this is what it feels like
now you know
this is what it feels like

the clouds will part and the sky cracks open
and god himself will reach his fucking arm
through
just to push you down
just to hold you down
stuck in this hole with the shit and the piss
and it's hard to believe it could come down to this
back at the beginning
sinking
spinning

and in the end
we still pretend
the time we spend
not knowing when
you're finally free
and you could be

but it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
it didn't turn out quite the way that you wanted it

now you know
this is what it feels like
now you know
this is what it feels like

you can try to stop it but it keeps on coming
you can try to stop it but

This song, "The Wretched"

Joey & Rory - Cheater, Cheater

Cheater, cheater, where'd you meet her, down at Ernie's bar
Did she smile your way, twirl her hair and say, how cute your dimples are
Did she use that line, 'your place or mine', while you danced with her real slow
Tell me, cheater, cheater, where'd you meet that no good white trash ho

Liar, liar, did you buy her whiskey all night long
Did you hide your ring in the pocket of your jeans or did you just keep it on
When the deed was done and you had your fun, did you think I wouldn't know
Tell me, cheater, cheater, where'd you meet that no good white trash ho

Now I'm not one to judge someone that I ain't never met
But to lay your hands on a married man's 'bout as low as a gal can get
Hey, I wish her well as she rots in hell, and you can tell her I said so
Cheater, cheater, where'd you meet that no good white trash ho

Loser, loser, hope you love her, cause you're stuck with her now
Take your sorry butt, load up all your stuff, and get the hell out of my house
But I just wish you'd tell me this one thing before you go
Tell me, cheater, cheater, where'd you meet that no good white trash ho

Now I'm not one to judge someone that I ain't never met
But to lay your hands on a married man's 'bout as low as a gal can get
Hey, I wish her well as she rots in hell, and you can tell her I said so
Cheater, cheater, where'd you meet that no good white trash ho

Yeah, I wish you tell me this one thing before you go
Tell me, cheater, cheater, where'd you meet that low down, uptown,
Slept with every guy around, pressed on eyelash, no good white trash ho

"Alicia Keys Don't Give Up (ft. Bono) lyrics"


Bono:
In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose

Alicia:
Don't give up
'cos you have friends
Don't give up
You're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it good

Bono:
Though i saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Alicia:
Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
It's going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up

Bono:
'got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river's flowing
That river's flowing

Alicia:
Don't give up
'cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not the only one
Don't give up
There's no reason to be ashamed
Don't give up
You still You still have us
I believe you and me there's somewhere
Is a place where we belong

Weezer - Pork and Beans

They say i need some rogaine to put in my hair
Work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
Okaley makes the shades to transform a tool
You'd hate for the kids to think that you've lost your cool

Imma do the things that i wanna do
I ain't got a thing to prove to you
I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if i make a scene
I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and i'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot about what you think

everyone likes to dance to a happy song
with a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along
timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the charts
maybe if i work with him i can perfect the art

Imma do the things that i wanna do
I ain't got a thing to prove to you
I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if i make a scene
I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside
one look in the mirror and i'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot about what you think

no, i don't care
i don't care
i don't care
i don't care
i don't care
i don't care

Imma do the things that i wanna do
I ain't got a thing to prove to you
I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if i make a scene
I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside
one look in the mirror and i'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot about what you think

coin operated boy

coin operated boy
sitting on the shelf he is just a toy
but i turn him on and he comes to life
automatic joy
that is why i want a coin operated boy

made of plastic and elastic
he is rugged and long-lasting
who could ever ever ask for more
love without complications galore
many shapes and weights to choose from
i will never leave my bedroom
i will never cry at night again
wrap my arms around him and pretend....

coin operated boy
all the other real ones that i destroy
cannot hold a candle to my new boy and i'll
never let him go and i'll never be alone
not with my coin operated boy......

this bridge was written to make you feel smittener
with my sad picture of girl getting bitterer
can you extract me from my plastic fantasy
i didnt think so but im still convinceable
will you persist even after i bet you
a billion dollars that i'll never love you
will you persist even after i kiss you
goodbye for the last time
will you keep on trying to prove it?
i'm dying to lose it...
i want it
i want you
i want a coin operated boy.

and if i had a star to wish on
for my life i cant imagine
any flesh and blood could be his match
i can even take him in the bath

coin operated boy
he may not be real experienced with girls
but i know he feels like a boy should feel
isnt that the point that is why i want a
coin operated boy
with his pretty coin operated voice
saying that he loves me that hes thinking of me
straight and to the point
that is why i want
a coin operated boy.

It Ends Tonight--All American Rejects

Your subtleties
They strangle me
I can't explain myself at all.
And all the wants
And all the needs
All I don't want to need at all.

The walls start breathing
My mind's unweaving
Maybe it's best you leave me alone.
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow.

When darkness turns to light,
It ends tonight
It ends tonight.

A falling star
Least I fall alone.
I can't explain what you can't explain.
You're finding things that you didn't know
I look at you with such disdain

The walls start breathing
My mind's unweaving
Maybe it's best you leave me alone.
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow.

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.

Now I'm on my own side
It's better than being on your side
It's my fault when you're blind
It's better that I see it through your eyes

All these thoughts locked inside
Now you're the first to know

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.
Just a little insight won't make this right
It's too late to fight
It ends tonight,
It ends tonight.

Tonight
Insight
When darkness turns to light,
It ends tonight.

Radiohead - Creep

When you were here before,
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fucking special

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

I don't care if it hurts,
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
when I'm not around
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

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

She's running out the door
She's running out
She run run run run...
run...

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

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

I don't belong here...

"Someday At Christmas"

Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life's really worth
There'll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas we'll see a Man
No hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care

Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shinning moment my heart ran away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Take hope because your love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime

You've Got To Believe In Something - The Spin Doctors

You've got to believe in something
It's a lonely universe
Be careful what you wish for
Cause you improvement might be worse
Birth is a missing persons file
It's a case of role reversal
Life is a play...
Sometimes I can remember the rehearsal

You've got to believe in nothing
There's and awful lot out there
Some in every perfect hair
You know I lose a bit of sleep
Wondering if nothing would ever desert us
But I know they don't know nothing
And what they don't know can't hurt us

I want to tell you
This guy wants to charge you a nickel
I want to tell you
This guy wants to charge you a dime
I want to tell you
I'm charge you a five dollar bill
And show you a real fine time

There's a candy coated iguana
Behind curtain number one
And a sixteen dollar bill
For every pregnant flying nun
They got a soda-pop that'll save the world
It's a tonic and an elixir
It's a get-you-laid
Better-paid
Guaranteed all-round life-fixer

I want to tell you....

You've got to believe in something
It's a lonely universe
Be careful what you wish for
Cause your improvement might be worse
Birth is a missing persons file
It's a case of the role reversal
Life is a play, they say
Sometimes I can remember the rehearsal

I want to tell you
Some say life is a blessing
I want to tell you
Some say life is a curse
I want to tell you
Some say life is a play
And you get no time to rehearse
And you got to believe in something
Cause it's lonely universe
You got to believe in something

R.E.M. - I Believe

When I was young and full of grace
And spirited--a rattlesnake.
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit, I will not tell
Youre on your honor not to tell

I believe in coyotes and time as an abstract
Explain the change, the difference between
What you want and what you need, theres the key,
Your adventure for today, what do you do
Between the horns of the day?

I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

When I was young and give and take
And foolish said my fool awake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit, I will not tell
Youre on your honor, on your honor

Trust in your calling, make sure your callings true
Think of others, the others think of you
Silly rule golden words make, practice practice makes perfect,
Perfect is a fault, in fault lies change

I believe my humors wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

When I was young and full of grace
As spirited a rattlesnake
When I was young and fever fell
My spirit, I will not tell
Youre on your honor not to tell
I believe in example
I believe my throat hurts
Example is the checker to the key

I believe my humors wearing thin
And I believe the poles are shifting

I believe my shirt is wearing thin
And change is what I believe in

Extreme ~ More Than Words



[youtube=213,174]http://ca.[/youtube]

Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
Its not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldnt have to say that you love me
Cos Id already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldnt make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words

Now Ive tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close dont ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldnt have to say that you love me
Cos I'd already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldnt make things new
Just by saying I love you

More than words

*appreciates Xana's taste in Boston* I was going to post that very song, in fact.


 


38 Special

If i'd Been the one


I've been lost inside, empty space in my heart
And some things never change, oh
How it hurts me and how it's tearin' me apart
And it just goes on and on

Can you read my mind
Take a good look at my face
Could you take the time
Just to stand here in my place

What if I'd been the one to
say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you
just wanna cry, look inside
Can you read my mind? Oh oh

When I hear your name
Feel so cold deep inside
Still it's hard to explain, oh
What your love meant to me
They say time will heal the pain
But it just goes on forever

Can you read my mind
Have you closed the door on love
Can you be so blind
Did you think I'd just give up



What if I'd been the one to
say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you
just wanna cry, wanna cry
What if I'd been the one to
say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when it hurts so deep inside
And it never fades away, Fade away

Time can't erase the reasons why
Count my mistakes and the heartaches
Since you said goodbye

What if I'd been the one to
say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you
just wanna cry, wanna cry
What if I'd been the one to
say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when it hurts so deep inside
And it never fades away, Fade away

Never fades away, no it don't fade away

I'm No Angel

No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the street
I`ve got my label, So I won't crumble at your feet
And I know baby, So I've got scars upon my cheek
And I'm half crazy, Come on and love me baby

So you find me hard to handle, well I'm easier to hold
So you like my spurs that jingle and I never leave you cold
So I might steal your diamonds I'll bring you back some gold
I'm no angel

No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the dark
Let me rock your cradle, Let me start a fire with your spark
Oh come on baby, Come and let me show you my tatoo
Let me drive you crazy, Come on and love me baby

So you don't give a darn about me, I never treat you bad
I won't ever lift a hand to hurt you & I'll always leave you glad
So I might steal your diamonds I'll bring you back some gold
I'm no angel



No I'm no angel, No I'm no stranger to the dark
Let me rock your cradle, Let me start a fire with your spark
Oh come on baby, Come and let me show you my tatoo
Let me drive you crazy, Come on and love me baby

The Grass Roots

My Midnight Confessions



The sound of your footsteps
Telling me that you're near
Your soft gentle motion, baby
Brings out the need in me that no-one can hear, except

In my midnight confessions
When I tell all the world that I love you
In my midnight confessions
When I say all the things that I want to
I love you

But a little gold ring you wear on your hand makes me understand
There's another before me, you'll never be mine
I'm wasting my time

Staggering through the daytime
Your image on my mind
Passing so close beside you baby
Sometimes the feelings are so hard to hide, except

In my midnight confessions
When I tell all the world that I love you
In my midnight confessions
When I say all the things that I want to
I love you

But a little gold ring you wear on your hand makes me understand
There's another before me, you'll never be mine
I'm wasting my time

In my midnight confessions
When I tell all the world that I love you

Roy Orbison

In Dreams




A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
Go to sleep. everything is all right.

I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayerlike dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you. in dreams I talk to you.
In dreams youre mine. all of the time were together
In dreams, in dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I cant help it, I cant help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

Its too bad that all these things, can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams in beautiful dreams.

Toad the Wet Sprocket- Don't Fade

Lead me well, dont clear my way
Its fascinating how the pallor can stay upon your face
When you are light like a little boy
Flying kites and shouting to the world
Youre shouting to the world your joy
Dont fade, youre staying here with me
Dont fade, I need to know that someone still believes

Look around, see for yourself
He led us down and at the waters edge we knelt
Petals in the lake and red upon my face
Shes crying as we pray
And it all comes down to money, again
How could you forsake the love of God that way
Dont fade, youre staying here with me
Dont fade, I need to know that someone still believes.

Toad the Wet Sprocket - Little Man, Big Man

Little man big man who came first
What is the measure of our worth
If there was a storm rolled in
Whod run inside
Whod go walking

Little man big man whats inside
Its all in the places
Where we find our pride
If there was a soul lost by the road
Whod pass by
Whod take it home

Where is the beast lying
Is there a beast hiding

Little man big man who is who
Its all in the damage that our toys can do
If there was a rock and a window pane
Whod throw stones
Whod walk away

Where is the beast lying
Is there a beast hiding

Are we learning
Are we moving
Little man big man fade away
Its all in the in the violence of the games we play
Its all in the in the violence of the games we play
Its all in the love we give today

Rainer Maria Rilke

Sonnets to Orpheus,
Second Part, Sonnet 29

Silent friend of many distances, feel
how space dilates with each breath of yours.
Among the rafters of dark belfries peal
your own sweet tones. Your predators

will grow strong upon such fare.
Know transformation in its varied sign.
Which experience produces most despair?
If drinking offend, transform yourself to wine.

Be, in this immensity of night,
the magic force at your sense's crossroad;
the purpose of their mysterious plan.

And though you fade from earthly sight,
declare to the silent earth: I flow.
To the rushing water say: I am.”

When You're Evil Lyrics
Voltaire





When the Devil is too busy
And Death's a bit too much
They call on me by name you see,
For my special touch.
To the Gentlemen I'm Miss Fortune
To the Ladies I'm Sir Prize
But call me by any name
Any way it's all the same

I'm the fly in your soup
I'm the pebble in your shoe
I'm the demon in your bed
I'm a bump on every head
I'm the peel on which you slip
I'm a pin in every hip
I'm the thorn in your side
Makes you wriggle and writhe And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

While there's children to make sad
While there's candy to be had
while there's pockets left to pick
While there's grannies left to trip down the stairs
I'll be there, I'll be waiting 'round the corner
It's a game. I'm glad I'm in it
'Cause there's one born every minute
And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

I pledge my allegiance, to all things dark
And I promise on my damned soul
To do as I am told, Lord Beelzebub
Has never seen a soldier quite like me
Not only does his job, but does it happily.

I'm the fear that keeps you awake
I'm the shadows on the wall
I'm the monsters they become
I'm the nightmare in your skull
I'm a dagger in your back
An extra turn upon the rack
I'm the quivering of your heart
A stabbing pain, a sudden start.

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

It gets so lonely being evil
What I'd do to see a smile
Even for a little while
And no one loves you when you're evil
I'm lying through my teeth!
Your tears are all the company I need

Green Day : Jesus of Suburbia: Part 5: Tales of another broken home


To live and not to breathe
Is to die in tragedy
To run, to run away
To find what you believe
And I leave behind
This hurricane of fucking lies
I lost my faith to this
This town that don't exist

So I run
I run away
To the light of masochist
And I leave behind
This hurricane of fucking lies
And I walked this line
A million and one fucking times
But not this time

I don't feel any shame
I won't apologize

When there ain't nowhere you can go
Running away from pain
When you've been victimized
Tales from another broken home

You're leaving...
You're leaving...
You're leaving...
Ah you're leaving home...

O Fortuna - O Fortune     
O Fortuna     O Fortune,
velut luna     like the moon
statu variabilis,     you are changeable,
semper crescis     ever waxing
aut decrescis;     and waning;
vita detestabilis     hateful life
nunc obdurat     first oppresses
et tunc curat     and then soothes
ludo mentis aciem,     as fancy takes it;
egestatem,     poverty
potestatem     and power
dissolvit ut glaciem.     it melts them like ice.
Sors immanis     Fate - monstrous
et inanis,     and empty,
rota tu volubilis,     you whirling wheel,
status malus,     you are malevolent,
vana salus     well-being is vain
semper dissolubilis,     and always fades to nothing,
obumbrata     shadowed
et velata     and veiled
michi quoque niteris;     you plague me too;
nunc per ludum     now through the game
dorsum nudum     I bring my bare back
fero tui sceleris.     to your villainy.
Sors salutis     Fate is against me
et virtutis     in health
michi nunc contraria     and virtue,
est affectus     driven on
et defectus     and weighted down,
semper in angaria.     always enslaved.
Hac in hora      So at this hour
sine mora     without delay
corde pulsum tangite;     pluck the vibrating strings;
quod per sortem     since Fate
sternit fortem,     strikes down the string man,
mecum omnes plangite!     everyone weep with me!

Who Will Save Your Soul - Jewel

People living their lives for you on tv
They say theyre better than you and you agree
He says hold my calls from behind those cold brick walls
Says come here boys, there aint nothing for free
Another doctors bill, another lawyers bill, another cute cheap thrill
You know you love him if you put him in your will, but ...

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you wont save your own?

We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them
The cops want someone to bust down on orleans avenue
Another day, another dollar, another war, another tower
Went up to where the homeless had their homes
So we pray to as many different gods are there are flowers
But we call religion our friend
Were so worried about saving our souls
Afraid that God will take his toll that we forget to begin but

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you wont save your own?

Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill
You got social security, but that dont pay your bills
There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay
So you bargain with the devil, say youre o.k. for today
You say that you love them, take their money and run
Say, its been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things
Those flings, those strings youve got to cut
So get out on the streets, girls, and bust your butts

Who will save your soul when it comes to the flowers now
Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you wont save your own?

"Amanda Palmer Ampersand"



* * *


I walk down my street at night
The city lights are strange and violent
I am comforted by the approaching sounds of trucks and sirens
Even though the world's so bad
These men rush out to help the dying
And though I am no use to them
I do my part by simply smiling

The ghetto boys are catcalling me
As I pull my keys from my pocket
I wonder if this method of courtship
Has ever been effective
Has any girl in history said
Sure, you seem so nice, let's get it on
Still, I always shock them when I answer
Hi my name's Amanda
and I'm not gonna live my life on one side of an ampersand
and even if I went with you I'm not the girl you think I am
and I'm not gonna match you
cause I'll lose my voice completely yeah
I'm just gonna watch you
Cause I'm not the one that's crazy
Yeah …

I have wasted years of my life
Agonizing up at the fires
It started when I thought that to be strong you must be flame retardant
And now to dress the wounds cause into question
How authentic they are
There is always someone criticizing me
She just likes paying hospital
Lying in my bed
I remember what you said
There's no such thing as accidents

But you've got the headstone all ready
All craved up and pretty
Your sick satisfaction
Those his and hers matching
The daisies all push up'n
Pairs to the horizons
Your hands full of ketchup
It's nice that you're trying
The headstone's all ready
All carved up and pretty
Your sick satisfaction
Those his and hers matching
The daises all push up'n
Pairs to the horizons
Your eyes full of ketchup
It's nice that you're trying

and I'm not gonna live my life on one side of an ampersand
and even if I went with you I'm not the girl you think I am
and I'm not gonna match you
cause I'll lose my voice completely yeah
I'm just gonna watch you
Cause I'm not the one that's crazy
Yeah …
I'm not the one that's crazy
Yeah…

As I wake up to a cough
The blaze consumed the block
But poetically stopped at my apartment
And my housemates are all sleeping soundly
And nobody deserves to die
But you were awful adamant
That if I didn't love you
Then you have just one alternative

And I may be romantic
And I may risk my life for it
But I ain't gonna die for you
You know I ain't no Juliet
And I'm not gonna watch you wanna burn yourself out baby
No I'm not gonna stop you
Cause I'm not the one that's crazy, yeah
I'm not the one that's crazy, yeah
I'm not the one that's crazy…

Love Lockdown - Kanye West

I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
What I had to do, had to run from you
I'm in love with you, but the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me, all the way home
So ya never know, never never know
Never know enough, 'til it's over love
'Til we lose control, system overload
Screaming no no no, no no
I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
See I wanna move, but can't escape from you
So I keep it low, keep a secret code
So everybody else don't have to know


So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
You keep ya love locked down, you lose


I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
I can't keep my cool, so I keep it true
I got something to lose, so I gotta move
I can't keep myself, and still keep you too
So I keep in mind, when I'm on my own
Somewhere far from home, in the danger zone
How many times did I take 'til I finally got through
you lose, you lose
I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
See I had to go, see I had to move
No more wasting time, you can't wait for life
which is wasting time, where's the finish line


So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
You keep ya love locked down, you lose


I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
I met no one new, I got no one new
I know I said I'm through, but got love for you
But I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
Gotta keep it going, keep the loving going
Keep it on a roll, only God knows
If I be with you, baby I'm confused
You choose, you choose
I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to
Where I want to go, I don't need you
I've been down this road, too many times before
I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to


So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keeping ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keeping ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keeping ya love locked down, you lose
So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keeping ya love locked down, ya love locked down
If you keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keeping ya love locked down, you lose

The Damnwells - "Kiss Catastrophe"

Why do you kiss goodbye every night
Giving me every reason to lie
Can I be in your way for a while
Can I get in the back seat and hide

Take it down to the street anytime
Lock me out of the sheets for a while
Give us a kiss with sharp little knives

You are the last thing on my mind
I'll be the first you leave behind
Everyone knows why

So give it up
Give it back to me
Will you be mine
While the winners sleep
Give it up
Give it back to me
Open wide
Kiss catastrophe

Circling over you and in between
Your shiver and my blue restless teen
More lovely than a reason to leave

Cause you are the last thing on my mind
I'll be the first you leave behind
And everyone knows why

So give it up
Give it back to me
Will you be mine
While the winners sleep
So give it up
Give it back to me
Open wide
Kiss catastrophe

Give it up
Give it back to me
Give it up
Give it back to me
