HERE COME DEM TEARS AGAIN. Sad songs for sad-bastard people. Some are consolatory; most are not.
New Plastic Ideas
It's a shattered day all around
Songs About Leaving
Not Another Sunrise
Good News For People Who Love Bad News
I like books about drifters, songs about the same; they both seem to make me feel a little less insane.
Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
'Can it all be so simple' specifically- 'Brothers passin' away- i gotta make wakes'
we all came from a woman / got our name from a woman / and our game from a woman /I wonder why we take from our women / why we rape our women. do we hate our women?
Songs of Love and Hate
I've looked for love and i've looked for light- but does it have to be cruel and oh-so bright?
|24|| ||Erykah Badu|
New Amerykah Part One (Fourth World War)
Telephoneeeeee- it's Old Dirty. He wants to give you directions home.
I do not exist (only you exist)
|22||The Mountain Goats|
I will find a crowd and blend in for a minute and I will try to find a little comfort in it and I will get lonely and gasp for air
|21||David Thomas Broughton|
The Complete Guide to Insufficiency
All of these questions are too ambiguous.
Ready to Die
A brilliant gangster rap album that also features the most brutally acute expression of self-loathing and remorse i have ever heard: 'I bet my momma wished she got that fuckin' abortion'. CHILLS EVERY TIME
Glances with amusement- with evasion -- with contempt. So distant.
For Emma, Forever Ago
There's a black crow sitting across from me / his wiry legs are crossed / he's dangling my keys / he even fakes a toss

Let us Garlands Bring
A masquerade ball, a mardi gras mask, a cheap facade
When the fucking fireworks come in

Untitled 1 = :'(. Untitled 3 = :')
Once upon a time you were the one I adored
Make a domestic violence joke after listening to this go on i fucking dare you

I DO NOT FEEEEAR YOUUUUUU
Somedays aren't yours at all,
They come and go
As if they're someone else's days
They come and leave you behind someone else's face
And it's harsher than yours
And colder than yours don't call me don't write
The Disintegration Loops
In which one loop speaks numerous harrowing truths. Essential.
My aunt Pam can't put those cigarettes down,
Now my lil cousin smokin those cigarettes now,
His job trying to claim that he too niggerish now,
Is it cuz his skin blacker than licorice now?
I can't figure it out...
John you'll never be a man
Whose fault? No-one but myself.
Don't send letters. Letters always get burnt.
Yankee Foxtrot Hotel
All my lies are only wishes I know I would die if i could come back new
Both Sides Now
Tears, and fears, and feeling proud / to say 'I love you' right out loud.
'13 Months in Six Minutes' is too fucking much. The perfect distillation of malaise, the anguished guitar solo that sounds like a heart breaking, the resounding ravages of time - and life- on love. Oh God it hurts. I knew we'd never write.
