So Contagious

"Oh no, this couldn't be more unexpected
And I can tell that I've been moving in so slow
Don't let it throw you off too far
Cause I'll be running right behind you
Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously
Oohhh, when I'm around you I'm predictable
Cause I believe in loving you with first sight
I know it's crazy but I'm hoping to..
To take a hold of you
Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously
Oh you're everything I'm wanting
Come to think of it, I'm aching
On account of my transgression..
Will you welcome this confession?
Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously
Could this be out of line? (Could this be out of line?)
To say you're the only one breaking me down like this
You're the only one I would take a shot on
Keep me hanging on so contagiously"

Forgive & Forget

"We always seem to fit like a tight dress
You were beautiful, I was obsessed
Occupy my time just to get through
And try and figure out how to get you
Acoustic guitar just for you in the car
Walks in the park had you home before dark
Poetry readings and dinner proceedings
You showed me something those days they meant nothing
What the hell am I supposed to do?
I can't forgive and forget you [x2]
What the hell am I supposed to do
I thought I'd forgive you
But now I forget you
I always showed you off like a prom queen
You were Norma Jean I was James Dean
Sitting thinking in my bedroom
So here's a few things that I went through:
Romantic movies, and money, and jewelry
Vacations and flowers on special occassions
Purses and lockets paid out of my pocket
Diamonds and dresses,
Fuck, you're expensive!
What the hell am I supposed to do
I can't forgive and forget you [x2]
If you were in my shoes what would you do?
I thought I'd forgive you, but now I forget you
I can't forgive,
I can't forget
I can't forgive
And I can't forget you
You reached down in my chest and grabbed my soul
How could I forget?"

Inevitable

"Do you remember when we were just kids
And cardboard boxes took us miles from what we would miss
Schoolyard conversations taken to heart
And laughter took the place of everything we knew we were not
I wanna break every clock
The hands of time could never move again
We could stay in this moment (stay in this moment)
For the rest of our lives
Is it over now hey, hey, is it over now
I wanna be your last, first kiss
That you'll ever have
I wanna be your last, first kiss
Amazing how life turns out the way that it does
We end up hurting the worst, the only ones we really love
I wanna break every clock
The hands of time could never move again
We could stay in this moment (stay in this moment)
For the rest of our lives
Is it over now hey, hey, is it over now
I wanna be your last, first kiss
That you'll ever have
I wanna be your last, first kiss
Is it over now hey, hey, is it over now
Is it over how hey, hey, it's not over now
I wanna be your last, first kiss
That you'll ever have (that you'll ever have)
I wanna be your last, first love (that you'll ever have)
Till you're lying here beside me with arms and eyes open wide
I wanna be your last, first kiss for all time"
4Atmosphere
Sunshine

"And aint no way, to explain or say
How painful the hang over was today
In front of the toilet, hands and knees
Trying to breathe in-between the dry-heaves
My baby made me some coffee,
Afraid that if I drink some it's probably comin right back out me
Couple of Advil, relax and chill
At a stand still with how bad I feel
I think I need to smell fresh air
So I stepped out the back door and fell down the stairs
The sunlight hit me dead in the eye like
It's mad that I gave half the day to last night
My bad sight made me trip on my ass right
Into that patch of grass like that's life
All of the sudden, I realize somethin
The weather is amazing, even the birds are bumpin
Stood up and took a look and a breathe
And there's that light that I forgot that I possessed
Never really seen exercise this friendly
But I think something's tellin me to ride that Case B
The brakes are broken, that's alright
The tires got air and the chain seems tight
Hopped on, and felt the summertime
It reminds me of one of them moosob lines
Like
Sunshine sunshine its fine
I feel it in my skin, warmin up my mind
Sometimes you gotta give in to win
I love the days that it shines
Whoa let it shine
Whoa let it shine
Whoa let it
If I could I would keep this feelin in a plastic jar
Bust it out whenever someone's actin hard
Settle down barbecue in the back yard
The kids get treats and old folks get classic cars
Everyday that gets to passed is a success
And every woman looks better in a sun dress
The sunshines an excuse to shoot hoops get juice
Show improved new moves and let loose
I hear voices, I see smiles to match 'em
Good times, and you can feel it in the fashion
Even though the heat cooks up the action
The streets still got butterflies, enough kids to catch 'em
Ridin my bike around these lakes man
Feelin like I finally figured out my escape plan
Take it all in the day, started off all wrong
But somehow now that hang over is all gone
Aint nothin like the sound of the leaves
When the breeze penetrates these Southside trees
leanin up against one, watchin the vibe
Forgettin all about the stress thankin god I'm alive
It's so simple, I had to keep the song simple
And when I get home, I'm gonna open all the windows
Feelin alright, stopped at a stop sign
A car pulled up, bumpin Fresh Princes' summertime
Summer summer
Time
Sunshine sunshine its fine
I feel it in my skin, warmin up my mind
Sometimes you gotta give in to win
I love the days that it shines
Whoa let it shine
Whoa let it"

Doesn't Remind Me

"I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
With a graveyard tan carrying a cross
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like studying faces in a parking lot
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like driving backwards in the fog
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget
I like gypsy moths and radio talk
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like gospel music and canned applause
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like colorful clothing in the sun
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I ilke hammering nails and speaking in tongues
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need
Bend and shape me
I love the way you are
Slow and sweetly
Like never before
Calm and sleeping
We won't stir up the past
So discretely
We won't look back
The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need
I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like playing in the sand what's mine is ours
If it doesn't remind me of anything"

Time Won't Let Me Go

"Whenever I look back
On the best days of my life
I think I saw them all on T.V.
I am so homesick now for
Someone that I never knew
I am so homesick now for
Someplace I will never be
Time won't let me go
Time won't let me go
If I could do it all again
I'd go back and change everything
But time won't let me go
I never had a 'Summer of 69'
Never had a Cherry Valance of my own
All these precious moments
You promised me would come in time
So where was I when I missed mine?
Time won't let me go
Time won't let me go
If you gave me back those years
I'd do it all better I swear
Time won't let me go
Ba ba ba ba ba...
If I could go back once again
I would change everything, yeah
If I could go back once again
I'd do it all so much better
Time won't let me go
Time won't let me go
If I could do it all again
I'd go back and change everything
But you won't ever let me go"
7Built To Spill
Car

"You get the car
I'll get the night off
You'll get the chance to take the world apart and figure out how it works
Don't let me know what you find out
I need a car
You need a guide
Who needs a map
If I don't die or worse I'm gonna need a nap
At best I'll be asleep when you get back
I wanna see it when you find out what comets, stars, and moons are all about
I wanna see their faces turn to backs of heads and slowly get smaller
I wanna see it now
I wanna see it now
I want specifics on the general idea
I wanna think what I should know
Want you to do me what to show
I wanna see movies of my dreams
I wanna see movies of my dreams
I wanna see movies of my dreams
I wanna see movies of my dreams
I wanna see it when you get stoned on a cloudy breezy desert afternoon
I wanna see it untame itself and break its owner
I wanna see it now
I wanna see it now"

The Chemicals Between Us

"I want you to remember
A love so full it could send us all ways
I want you to surrender
All my feelings rose today
And I want you to remain
The power of children can amaze
Ill try not to complain
I know thats a pisser baby
The chemicals between us
The walls that lie between us
Lying in this bed
The chemicals displaced
There is no lonlier place
Than lying in this bed
I want you to remember
Everything you said
Every driven word
Like a hammer, hell, to my head
The chemicals between us
There is no lonlier place
Then lying in this bed
The chemicals displaced
There is no lonlier place
Than lying in this bed
The chemicals between us
The chemicals between us
Lying in this bed
Were of the hollow men
We are the naked ones
We never meant you harm
Never meant you wrong
Id like to thank
All of my lovers, lovers, lovers
The chemicals between us
The army of achievers
Lying in this bed
The chemicals displaced
There is no lonlier face
Than lying in this bed
The chemicals between us"

Colorblind

"I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (repeat 3 times)
I am taffy stuck and tongue tied
Stutter shook and uptight
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (repeat 3 times)
I am fine
I am covered in skin
No one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside
I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (repeat 3 times)
I am fine (repeat 3 times)"

Who's Got My Back Now?

"Run...hide
All that was sacred to us
Sacred to us
See the signs
The covenant has been broken
By mankind
Leaving us with no shoulder...with no shoulder
To rest our head on
To rest our head on
To rest our head on
Who's got my back now?
When all we have left is deceptive
So disconnected
So what is the truth now?
There's still time
All that has been devastated
Can be recreated
Realize
We pick up the broken pieces
Of our lives
Giving ourselves to each other...ourselves to each other
To rest our head on
To rest our head on
To rest our head on
Who's got my back now?
When all we have left is deceptive
So disconnected
So what is the truth now?
Tell me the truth now...Tell us the truth now
Who's got my back now?
When all we have left is deceptive
So disconnected
So what is the truth now?"

The Recluse

"I wake alone
in a woman's room I hardly know.
I wake alone
and pretend that I am finally home.
The room is littered
with her books and notebooks
I imagine what they say, like,
"Shoo fly don't bother me."
I can hardly get myself out of the bed
for fear of never lying in this bed again.
Oh Christ, I'm not that desperate.
Oh no, oh God. I am.
How'd I end up here to begin with?
I don't know.
Why do I start what I can't finish?
Oh please don't barrage me
with the questions
to all those ugly answers.
My ego's like my stomach,
it keeps shitting what I feed it.
But maybe I don't want to finish anything anymore.
Maybe I can wait in bed 'til she comes home
and whispers,
"You're in my web now,
I've come to wrap you up tight
'til it's time to bite down."
I wake alone
in a woman's room I hardly know.
I wake alone
and pretend that I am finally home."

Title and Registration

"The glove compartment isn't accurately named
And everybody knows it.
So i'm proposing a swift orderly change.
Cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
And all i find are souvenirs from better times
Before the gleam of your taillights fading east
To find yourself a better life.
I was searching for some legal document
As the rain beat down on the hood
When i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget
And that's how this idea was drilled into my head
Cause it's too important
To stay the way it's been
There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
Lying awake at night
There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
Lying awake at night (up all night)
When I'm lying awake at night."

Out Loud

"Would you be the wind to blow me home
Would you be a dream
On the wings of a poem
And if we were walking through a crowd
Well you know I'd be proud
If you call my name out loud
Do you suppose that I would come running
Do you suppose I'd come at all
I suppose I would
And if we were walking
Down a dead end street
Would you be the one to let our eyes meet
Or would you just keep on walking
Down to the turn around
'cause you know I'd be proud
And if I was gone from the land we know
Would be the dawn
And let your beauty still show
And if you were walking
And heard the cold night coming
Would you call my name
'cause you know I'd come running"

Cigarrettes and Chocolate Milk

"cigarettes and chocolate milk
these are just a couple of my cravings
everything it seems i like's a little bit stronger
a little bit thicker
a little bit harmful for me
if i should buy jellybeans
have to eat them all in just one sitting
everything it seems i like's a little bit sweeter
a little bit fatter
a little bit harmful for me
and then there's those other things
which for several reasons we won't mention
everything about them is a little bit stranger
a little bit harder
a little bit deadly
it isn't very smart
tends to make one part so broken-hearted
sitting here remembering me
always been a shoe made for the city
go ahead, accuse me of just singing about places
with scrappy boys faces
have general run of the town
playing with prodigal songs
takes a lot of sentimental valiums
can't expect the world to be your raggedy andy
while running on empty
you little old doll with a frown
you got to keep in the game
maintaining mystique while facing forward
i suggest a reading of 'a lesson in tightropes'
or 'surfing your high hopes' or 'adios kansas'
it isn't very smart
tends to make one part so broken-hearted
still there's not a show on my back
holes or a friendly intervention
i'm just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish
a little bit tower of pisa whenever i see you
so please be kind if i'm a mess
cigarettes and chocolate milk"

One

"One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one, its the loneliest number since the number one
No is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes is the saddest experience you'll ever know
cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever know
one is the loneliest number even worst then two
yeah
its just no good anymore since you went away
now I spend my time just making up rhymes of yesterday
one is the loneliest number

"If it makes you
It takes you
I don't want to
If it makes you scared
In the bare, anyway
If it makes you, I don't want to
See your face when you feel not alive.
You're lying in bed with the pride of a lion.
You are there. You are there.
If you're shrewd enough to be underlined, then
You are there. You are there.
A world...premiere.
If it makes you
It takes you
I don't want to
If it makes you stare
In the bare, anyway

You're lying in bed with the pride of a lion.
You are there. You are there.
If you're shrewd enough to be underlined, then
You are there. You are there.
Where is my, I said, where's my sandanista?
And he walked...
A world premiere.
You're lying in bed with the pride of a lion.
Are you there? Are you there?
If you're shrewd enough to be underlined, then
You are there. You are there.
My boss said to me,
take my advice please
instead, for one second, up off your knees
we are not the competition

Clean

"Today, everything was fine,fine,fine
Until roundabout, quarter to nine,
I suddenly found myself in a bind, a bind.
Was it something I said?
Something I read and manifested that's getting you down.
Don't you dare come to bed with that ambiguous look in your eye,
I'd sooner sleep by an open fire and wake up fried.
Say what you will, say what you mean.
You could never offend, your dirty words come out clean.
Tomorrow, what price will I pay?
Could I make it all up to you
by serving coffee for two in bed?
Would you then gimme the time of day?
I need a map of your head, translated into English
so I can learn to not make you frown.
I'd feel better if you'd vent,
put your frustrations into four letter words
and let them out on mine, the most weathered ears in town.
Say what you will, say what you mean.
You could never offend, your dirty words come out clean."

Holes To Heaven

"The air was more than humid
And the heat was more than hungry
And the cars were square and spitting diesel fumes
The bulls were running wild
Because they're big and mean and sacred
And the children were playing cricket with no shoes
The next morning we woke up, man, with a seven hour drive
Well there we were stuck in port Blaire
Where boats break and children stare
And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven
Mmhmm
And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven
Mmhmm
Officials were quite friendly
Once we drowned them with our sweet talk
And we bribed them with our cigarettes and booze
Disembarking from the port
With no mistakes of any sort
Moving soundly engine running smooth
The next morning we woke up, man, with the sunrise to the right
Moving back north to port Blaire
Where boats break and children stare
And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven
Mmhmm
Yes and there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to heaven
Mmhmm"

A Beautiful Mess

"You've got the best of both worlds
You're the kind of girl who can take down a man,
And lift him back up again
You are strong but you're needy,
Humble but you're greedy
And based on your body language,
And shoddy cursive I've been reading
Your style is quite selective,
though your mind is rather reckless
Well I guess it just suggests
that this is just what happiness is
Hey, what a beautiful mess this is
It's like picking up trash in dresses
Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write
Kind of turn themselves into knives
And don't mind my nerve you could call it fiction
But I like being submerged in your contradictions dear
'Cause here we are, here we are
Although you were biased I love your advice
Your comebacks they're quick
And probably have to do with your insecurities
There's no shame in being crazy,
Depending on how you take these
Words I'm paraphrasing this relationship we're staging
And what a beautiful mess, yes it is
It's like picking up trash in dresses
Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say
Kind of turn themselves into blades
And the kind and courteous is a life I've heard
But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt
Cause here, here we are, Here we are
Here we are [x7]
We're still here
What a beautiful mess, this is
It's like taking a guess when the only answer is "Yes"
Through, timeless words and priceless pictures We'll fly like birds not of this earth
And tides they turn and hearts disfigure
But that's no concern when we're wounded together
And we, tore our dresses and stained our shirts
But its nice today. Oh the way it was so worth it."

"I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I won't always love these selfish things
I won't always live...
Not stopping...
It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
Amazing still it seems
I'll be 23
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine
You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine..."

Hurt

(I know this is originally NIN, but Johnny just makes this song...)
"I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but I remember everything
what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
I wear this crown of thorns
upon my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappear
you are someone else
I am still right here
what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
if I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way"

The Dolphin's Cry

"The way you're bathed in light
reminds me of that night
god laid me down into your rose garden of trust
and I was swept away
with nothin' left to say
some helpless fool
yeah I was lost in a swoon of peace
you're all I need to find
so when the time is right
come to me sweetly, come to me
come to me
love will lead us, alright
love will lead us, she will lead us
can you hear the dolphin's cry?
see the road rise up to meet us
it's in the air we breathe tonight
love will lead us, she will lead us
oh yeah, we meet again
it's like we never left
time in between was just a dream
did we leave this place?
this crazy fog surrounds me
you wrap your legs around me
all I can do to try and breathe
let me breathe so that I
so we can go together!
love will lead us, alright
love will lead us, she will lead us
can you hear the dolphin's cry?
see the road rise up to meet us
it's in the air we breathe tonight
love will lead us, she will lead us
life is like a shooting star
it don't matter who you are
if you only run for cover, it's just a waste of time
we are lost 'til we are found
this phoenix rises up from the ground
and all these wars are over"

Last Summer

"The Friday sun bears down again
As we drive with our friends
And on these longest days we spend
All the time trying to pretend
That our stories could be true
Wanting to be cool
The setting sunset says the day is through
If only we knew...
And we all sit around here in our home town
Listen to the waves as they all crash down
And watch the fire as it slowly burns away
Glowing embers fly across the sky your
Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer
The world passes by in my summer, our last summer
The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other
I let you watch it all, the view from our last summer
The view from our last summer...
We trace the sun across the sky
And we laugh till we cry
Always so hard to say goodbye (good bye)
And we all sit round here in our home town
It's so good like this, these are times we'll miss
The memories, I hope will never fade
Glowing embers fly across the sky your
Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer
The world passes by in my summer, our last summer
The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other
I let you watch it all, the view through our last summer
The view from our last summer...
I would stop time to stay with you
I would stop time so we don't move
I would stop time
I would stop time
I would stop time to keep you
Here by my side, in my summer, our last summer
The world passes by in my summer, our last summer
The light makes shadows fall, surrounded by each other
I let you watch it all, the view from our last summer"

Rest Stop

"Just three miles from the rest stop
And she slams on the breaks
She said I tried to be but I'm not
And could you please collect your things
I don't wanna be cold
I don't wanna be cruel
But I gotta find more
Than what's happening with you
If you'd - open up the door
She said - while you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought - hell if it's over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening - can you hear me
Have you forgotten
Just three miles from the rest stop
And my mouth's too dry to rage
The light was shining from the radio
I could barely see her face
But she knew all the words that I never had said
She knew the crumpled-up promise of this
Broken down man - and as I opened up the door
She said - while you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought - hell if it's over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening - can you hear me
Have you forgotten
She said - while you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought - hell if it's over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening - can you hear me
While you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you're dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn't care
So I thought - hell if it's over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose all my nerve
Are you listening - can you hear me"

Snow Brigade

"Enable to bring out the something
you want to know beneath the snow
in winter you're an affliction
that repeatedly defeated me, because
I'll find you somewhere
show you how much I care
know that there is no escape
from my snowbrigade
Bring out the someone
you want to see for jealousy
we all know one day you'll leave behind
your everything
and feel the spring come
I'll find you somewhere
show you how much I care
know that there is no escape
from my snowbrigade
My arms retreat
I wish they were there to hold you
I'll find you somewhere
show you how much I care
know that there is no escape
from my snowbrigade"
27Minus The Bear
White Mystery

"Left her at home in the cold London night.
She had nothing on. (not a stich)
Nothing on (not a stich on)
And she stays that way (till I get back)
With all regrets and (till I get back)
Another bottle of Good times
Her body?s under the covers
And there?s nothing wrong with a single inch
In the same position
Laying on her back waiting for a kiss
A kiss that she gets, long and slow
Starts at her toes,and then it goes
And goes, and goes, and goes
And goes, and goes, and goes
And moves slow
And when get to her lips I still have skin to expose
Her body?s under the covers
And there?s nothing wrong with a single inch
And then we change positon
She?s got me on my back
Losing common sense,
They are bright lights x4
You can?t hear the music
But we?re playing the same tune
Each beat every note played perfectly by you
They are bright lights"
28Modest Mouse
Bukowski

(I couldn't get away with picking just one MM song. Brock's lyrics are life-defining.)
"Woke up this morning and it seemed to me,
that every night turns out to be
A little more like Bukowski.
And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read.
But God who'd wanna be?
God who'd wanna be such an asshole?
God who'd wanna be?
God who'd wanna be such an asshole?
Well we sat on the edge of the river,
the crowd screamed, "Sacrifice the liver!"
If God takes life, he's an Indian giver.
So tell me now why, you'll tell me never.
Who would wanna be?
Who would wanna be such a control freak?
Well who would wanna be?
Who would wanna be such a control freak?
Well see what you wanna see. You should see it all.
Well take what you want from me. You deserve it all.
Nine times out of ten our hearts just get dissolved.
Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall.
But one time out of ten, everything is perfect for us all.
Well I want a better place or just a better way to fall.
Here we go!
If God controls the land and disease,
keeps a watchful eye on me,
If he's really so damn mighty,
my problem is I can't see,
well who would wanna be?
Who would wanna be such a control freak?
Well who would wanna be?
Who would wanna be such a control freak?
Evil home stereo, what good songs do you know?
Evil me, oh yeah I know, what good curves can you throw?
Well all that icing and all that cake,
I can't make it to your wedding, but I'm sure I'll be at your wake.
You were talk, talk, talk, talkin' in circles that day,
when you get to the point make sure that I'm still awake, OK?
Went to bed and didn't see
why every day turns out to be
a little bit more like Bukowski.
And yeah, I know he's a pretty good read.
But God who'd wanna be?
God who'd wanna be such an asshole?"
29I've Got It All (Most)

"ive got it all most
ive got it all almost all figured out
but always when i get there
always when i get there all the pieces they just fall apart
i cant hear you
i cant hear you talk about your dreams involving me
i dont believe
i dont believe that they are any sort of prophecy at all
what a shock its mr. sweet and awful
don't look so pissed off we all lose the plot occasionally
how consistant
how can someone so consistantly mess up as much as
every instance
how can someone inconsistant mess up so consistantly
what a shock its mr. sweet and awful
tell your gods i want to speak to their fathers
look right now i'm standing on my haunches
i got caught stealing from the lost and found
hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
are you going somewhere
or are you just walking through my walls
hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
this is not a party this is a crowd
hey there mr sweet and awful
youve got it easy i've got my needs
you say what you got
wanting what you please
hey there mr sweet and awful
hey there mr sweet and awful
carry yourself away with a delicious disease
ive got it all most
ive got it all almost all figured out"

Typical

"Come on, can?t I dream for one day
There?s nothing that can?t be done
But how long should it take somebody
Before they can be someone
?Cause I know there?s got to be another level
Somewhere closer to the other side
And I?m feeling like it?s now or never
Can I break the spell of the typical
I?ve lived through my share of misfortune
And I?ve worked in the blazing sun
But how long should it take somebody
Before they can be someone
Cause I know there?s got to be another level
Somewhere closer to the other side
And I?m feeling like it?s now or never
Can I break the spell of the typical, the typical, the typical, uh huh
I'm the typical
I'm the typical
Can I break the spell of the typical
Because it?s dragging me down
I?d like to know about when
When does it all turn around
I'm just the typical
I'm just the typical
Yeah I know there?s got to be another level
Somewhere closer to the other side
And I?m feeling like it?s now or never
Can I break the spell of the typical
The typical, the typical, uh huh
Of the typical
Break the spell (of the typical)
Break the spell (of the typical)
Can I break the spell of the typical, of the typical
I'm just the typical
I'm just the typical
I'm just the typical
I'm just the typical"

Echoplex

"Nice and high and far apart
Just like they said
I built this place with broken parts
Just like they said
You chip away the old version of you
You'd be surprised at what you can do
I'm safe in here
Irrelevant
Just like they said
My voice just echoes off these walls
You feel me breathe
I am watching you
I see it all
The many ways you can't get to me
I see it all
I see the hell you put yourself through
Oh the things I could do (if I wanted to)
My voice just echoes off these walls
My voice just echoes off these walls
I don't need anything at all
My voice just echoes off these walls
And I just slowly fade away
You will never ever get to me in here"

The Best Of You & Me

"It's a shame when you know when you know this.
When you roll your eyes back in your head.
Fall asleep again and you're wakened.
By the sounds of your heart when it's broken.
Beautiful the scene every time.
When I look at your face in the night.
It's so bad, the things in my mind.
But I swear I'll never leave you here.
Cause we deserve a second chance.
I promise I'm not looking back.
I'll love you till the end of this.
I'll take away your fear.
I can't believe we're doing this.
And all the secrets that we've kept have kept us from the best of this.
The best of you and me.
You bottle it up inside.
And take all the things I deny.
And throw it away on the left.
And take it back on the right.
Beautiful the scene every time.
When I look at your face in the night.
It's so bad, the things in my mind.
But I swear I'll never leave you here.
Cause we deserve a second chance.
I promise I'm not looking back.
I'll love you till the end of this.
I'll take away your fear.
I can't believe we're doing this.
And all the secrets that we've kept, have kept us from the best of this.
The best of you and me.
The best of you and me.
Control this
Control this
Control this
Control this
Control this
It's a shame when you know when you know this. (Control this)
When you roll your eyes back in your head. (Control this)
Fall asleep again and you're wakened. (Control this)
By the sounds of your heart when it's broken. (Control this)
Beautiful the scene every time. (Control this)
When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)
When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)
When I look at your face in the night. (Control this)"
33Our Lady Peace
Happiness And The Fish

"I confess
Everyone is overweight
And I'm obsessed
Talking is just masturbating
Without the mess
Addiction leaves you sad today
& unimpressed
I can't remember all the names because
Everyone you meet today
Is just so fucking vain
Bored again by happiness
All those friends I've (die) lost in there
I'm upset
Happiness is not a fish
That you can catch
Imagination can't resist
This laziness
That pins you down, get on your knees
Everyone you meet today
Is feeling useless & ashamed"
34Pearl Jam
Indifference

"i will light the match this mornin', so i won't be alone
watch as she lies silent, for soon light will be gone
i will stand arms outstretched, pretend i'm free to roam
i will make my way, through, one more day in hell...
how much difference does it make
how much difference does it make...
i will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
i'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
i will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
hey i won't change direction, and i won't change my mind
how much difference does it make
how much difference does it make..
how much difference...
i'll swallow poison, until i grow immune
i will scream my lungs out till it fills this room
how much difference
how much difference
how much difference does it make
how much difference does it make..."
35Silversun Pickups
Substitution

"There's a vulture perching right off screen
And it's bitter and whispers chaotic things
And it reached in quick ain't it worrying
It's so easy to see, everyone can agree, stop listening
I know you've heard it before
But then it wasn't enough
You don't wanna be held back from the substitution
I know you've seen this before
And now enough is too much
You don't wanna be set back when the substitution comes
I'm sorry
You're a marionette in the center of
All the twisting strings coming from above
It may seem too deep to recover from
It's so easy to see, everyone can agree, just let it go
I know you've heard it before
But then it wasn't enough
You don't wanna be held back from the substitution
I know you've seen this before
And now enough is too much
You don't wanna be set back when the substitution comes
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
When the voices start spinning just be aware
I have brought enough stones for us to share
That one's grinning that one's burning, aim for the throat
Let him choke on the stones that we are to throw
It's the great downfall
Not the overthrow
If you shoot them down
It'll make you soar
When reactions turn into hurricanes
And the middle course seems a little tame
Whether full or empty it's all the same
It's so easy to see, everyone can agree, you're not to blame
I know you've heard it before
But then it wasn't enough
You don't wanna be held back from the substitution
I know you've seen this before
but now enough is too much
You don't wanna be set back when the substitution comes
I'm sorry"
36Staind
Epiphany

"Your words they make just a whisper
Your face is so unclear
I try to pay attention
And the words just disappear
Cuz it's always raining in my head
Forget all the things i should have said
So i speak to you in riddles
Cuz my words get in my way
I smoke the whole thing to my head
And feel it wash away
Cuz i can't take anymore of this
I wanna come apart
And did myself a little hole
Inside your precious heart
Cuz it's always raining in my head
Forget all the things i should have said
I am nothing more than
A little boy inside
That cries out for intention
That i always try to hide
Cuz i talk to you like children
Though i don't know how i feel
But i know i'll do the right thing
If the right thing is in fear
Cuz its always raining in my head
Forget all the things i should have said"
37Taproot
Mine

"When I look into your eyes, you help me realign
And show me just how to be myself inside
I?m in control of everything
It?s taking time but that?s ok
I can bring you to my side
You're my blessing in disguise
You?re mine (You?re mine)
You?re mine (You?re mine)
You?re my blessing in disguise
You make me realize
Just how and where I want to be
Years from now
When my focal point is set
I?m something I know I'll get
It?s not a question of how but more of when
You're a hot commodity
The choice is mine and mine for keeps
I can bring you to my side
When I look into your eyes, you help me realign
And show me just where my dedication lies
I?m in control of everything it?s taking toll but that?s ok
I can bring you to my side"
38Third Eye Blind
Blinded (When I See You)

"Just an old friend coming over now to visit you and
That's what I've become
I let myself in though I know I'm not supposed to but
I never know when I'm done
And I see you fogging up the mirror
Vapor round your body glistens in the shower
And I want to stay right here and go down on you for an hour
Or stay, and let the day just fade away
In wild dedication, take the moment of hope
And let it run, and never look back at all the damage we have done now
To each other
Cause when I see you, it's like I'm starring down the sun
And I'm blinded
There's nothing left to do
Still I see you
I never believed that things they happen for a reason and
They never go as planned
I wanted to thank you for a vision that was lost that you returned but
You're passed do you understand
Now her appetite is blown, little else is known
Except she a little angry, grabs a towel and looks away
And heat fades with the day
And I fall down on what to say,
Oh something clean let me be clever
Hey oh well whatever
But that's not what I mean
When where we've been has left us burned
Still I won't turn now from a fight you know I'll never win
So when I see you, you know all the things I've done
Well I'm blinded
Like I'm staring down the sun
When I see you
It's like I'm staring down the sun
Time passes and it tells us what we're left with
We become the things we do
Me I'm a fool, spent from defiance, yeah you got me but
I didn't give up on you
Icarus is not a tee shirt or a swan song, no
He is born again and it's not easy being me
But I can't promise I will mend or bend
When you believe that we are fixed now from our birth
And I've just fallen back to earth
Still you know I'll try again
Cause I believe that we are lucky
We are golden we're stolen manners
In the days when we were one
So when I see you, despite all that we've become
I'm still blinded
But I'm still staring down the sun
When I see you
I'm blinded"

Barnacles

(Okay, so maybe I'm a bit biased.)
"I don't really need to see,
so I don't need to see so i'll paint.
I don't know, i'll paint it black.
I don't need to see.
I don't see how you see out of your window.
I don't need to see, i'll paint mine black.
I don't know me and you don't know you,
so we fit so good together 'cause I knew you like I knew myself.
We clung on like barnacles on a boat,
eventhough the ship sinks you know you can't let go.
I was talking like two hands knocking
Yelling, "Let me in, let me in. Please come out."
Black glass, dirt-based soap.
Tell yourself what you know.
My friends. Oh, my friends.
Bury your head. I'll help you bury your plans.
Hard hit, hard to miss. Problems are what a problem is.
My friends. Oh, my friends.
Bury your head. I'll help you bury your plans.
My light came up quick, call it your asterisk.
Buried like boys in a boys first book of the stars.
Saw it as satellite, constant unblinking as,
buried at the bottom of a bottom of a black-ish lake.
I don't really need to see,
so I don't need to see so i'll paint.
I don't know, i'll paint it black.
I don't need to see.
I don't see how you see out of your window.
I don't need to see, I'll paint mine black."
40Will Smith
Just The Two Of Us

"(Now dad, this is a very sensitive subject)
Just the two of us (Just the two of us)
From the first time the doctor placed you in my arms
I knew I'd meet death before I'd let you meet harm
Although questions arose in my mind, would I be man enough
Against wrong, choose right and be standing up
From the hospital that first night
Took a hour just ta get the car seat in right
People driving all fast, got me kinda upset
Got you home safe, placed you in your bassinette
That night I don't think one wink I slept
As I slipped out my bed, to your crib I crept
Touched your head gently, felt my heart melt
Cause I knew I loved you more than life itself (life itself)
Then to my knees, and I begged the Lord please
Let me be a good daddy, all he needs
Love, knowledge, discipline too
I pledge my life to you
Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us, building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I
Five years old, bringing comedy
Every time I look at you I think man, a little me
Just like me
Wait and see gonna be tall
Makes me laugh cause you got your dads ears an all
Sometimes I wonder, what you gonna be
A General, a Doctor, maybe a MC
Ha ha I wanna kiss you all the time
But I will test that butt when you cut out of line, tru dat
Uh ah why you do that
I try to be a tough dad, but you be making me laugh
Crazy joy, when I see the eyes of my baby boy
I pledge to you, I will always do
Everything I can
Show you how to be a man
Dignity, integrity, honor and
And I don't mind if you lose, long as you came with it
And you can cry, ain't no shame in it
It didn't work out with me an your mom
But yo push come to shove
You was conceived in love
So if the world attacks, and you slide off track
Remember one fact, I got your back
Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us, building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I
Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us, building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I
It's a full-time job to be a good dad
You got so much more stuff than I had
I gotta study just to keep with the changing times
101 Dalmations on your CD-ROM
See me I'm
Trying to pretend I know
On my PC where that CD go
But yo, ain't nothing promised, one day I'll be gone
Feel the strife, but trust life does go wrong (life goes on)
But just in case
It's my place
To impart
One day some girl's gonna break your heart
And ooh ain't no pain like from the opposite sex
Gonna hurt bad, but don't take it out on the next, son
Throughout life people will make you mad
Disrespect you and treat you bad
Let God deal with the things they do (things they do)
Cause hate in your heart will consume you too
Always tell the truth, say your prayers (prayers)
Hold doors, pull out chairs, easy on the swears
You're living proof that dreams do come true
I love you and I'm here for you
Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us, building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I
-repeat-
Taking on the world taking on the world
(I'm always here for you)
Look over your shoulder I'll be there
(Whatever you need just call on me)
We gonna rise we gonna shine
(Whatever you need I'll be there for you any time)
Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us, building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I
Daddy loves you daddy loves you for the rest of your life
(This is a really good song , how much am I getting paid for this dad)"
