The Connells~Choose a Side Page 38 of 61    (21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61)
When they said "Who won the war?"
You were in the war.
When they said to choose a side,
It made you want to hide.
When you fell in with the rest
We were not impressed.
When they said "Who won the war?"
It made you smile.

When they've torn you either way,
Put your past away.
When they said to choose a side,
It made you want to hide.
When you fell in with the worst,
It could be a first.
When they said "to choose a side"
It made you smile.

This time, this time
And nothing will do
This time, this time
We'll leave it all to you.
This time, this time
It's all the same.

When they said "Who won the war?"
You were in the war.
When they said to choose a side,
It made you want to hide.
When you fell in with the rest
We were not impressed.
When they said "Who won the war?"
It made you smile.

This time, this time
And nothing will do
This time, this time
We'll leave it all to you.
This time, this time
It's all the same.

Gotye- somebody I used to know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad it was over

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

Now you're just somebody that I used to know
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]
But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

[x2]
Somebody
(I used to know)
Somebody
(Now you're just somebody that I used to know)

(I used to know)
(That I used to know)
(I used to know)
Somebody

Bruce Sprinsteen~Born to Run
Posted: 7/24/2012 4:12:58 AM
In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines
Sprung from cages out on highway 9,
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected,and steppin' out over the line
h-Oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we're young
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

yes, girl we were

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
and strap your hands 'cross my engines
Together we could break this trap
We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back
h-Oh, Will you walk with me out on the wire
`Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
But I gotta know how it feels
I want to know if love is wild
Babe I want to know if love is real

Oh, can you show me

Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard
Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
And the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
In an everlasting kiss

1-2-3-4!

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight
but there's no place left to hide
Together Wendy we can live with the sadness
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
h-Oh, Someday girl I don't know when
we're gonna get to that place
Where we really wanna go
and we'll walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us
baby we were born to run

Oh honey, tramps like us
baby we were born to run

Come on with me, tramps like us
baby we were born to run

Ru-uh-uh-un
Mm-mm-mm-mm
Uh-uh-uh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Ru-uh-uh-uh-un
Mm-mm-mm-mm
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Ru-uh-uh-un

The Naked and the Famous~Young Blood
Posted: 7/26/2012 4:21:11 AM
We're only young and naive still
We require certain skills
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Can't help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape
Feel it start to permeate

We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper
As it crumbles and breaks
As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Pair of forgivers
Let go before it's too late
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Cake - Opera Singer
Posted: 7/26/2012 10:14:53 PM
I am an opera singer
I stand on painted tape
It tells me where I'm going
And where to throw my cape
I call my costars "brother"
I call my costars "knave"
I play both good and evil parts
I sing to verdi's grave
And every single morning
By 10 am I'm dressed
My rehearsals last for hours and hours
With diligence I have been blessed
Some people, they call me monster
Some people, they call me saint
My talent feeds my darker side
Yet no one will complain
I am an opera singer
I sing in foreign lands
I've sung for kings in europe
And emperors in japan
And after each performance
People stand around and wait
Just to tell me that they love my voice
Just to tell me that I'm great
I am an opera singer
I will sing when you're all dead
I sing the mountains crumbling apart
I sing what can't be said
I am an opera singer
I sing in foreign lands
Most people seem to know my name
Or at least know who I am

Classified - Step it Up
Posted: 7/27/2012 10:46:08 PM
(truly inspirational song)
Yeah
Nowadays, everybody's always askin me
"Yo Class, what can I do to make it in this music game, man?"

If you wanna make it in the music business
I wrote a couple steps that you all could follow
Gather all around, sit down and listen
And when it's time to go in, kid go all out

Uh, yeah, a lot of people be hittin me up
Tryin to get into the game and mixin it up
Like, I got a name and I'm livin it up
Don't think I'm livin it up but I guess I'm gettin my cut
(Step 1), always stay faithful
And try to bring somethin new to the table
The game's tough and the world can be hateful
Prepare yourself 'cause that hate might break you
Look, a label won't make you
Just startin off? Don't worry about sendin in your demo
Shit nowadays ain't nobody mail demos anyway
Gotta learn, value every penny saved
(Step 2), make your music timeless
'Cause that'll live on after you gone in silence
Never run out of gas like drivin a Hybrid
You're in for the long haul, so mind your mileage
Now to make a record takes real talent
But after that's when you face a real challenge
That's when you see you got the heart and the valence
And honestly, it's hard to find the right balance
You follow me? Good, now the record is done
And the pressure is on and the lessons to come
Now we separate one from the rest of the bunch
The test has begun (the test has begun)

(Step 1), get your flow, come out of your shell
(Step 2), learn the game and study it well
(Step 3), go for self, not anyone else
(Step 4), and if you wanna be heard (you gotta yell!)

If you wanna make it in the music business (yeah)
I wrote a couple steps that you all could follow (ha)
Gather all around, sit down and listen (uh)
And when it's time to go in (yeah), kid go all out

Alright team, let's huddle in it
We gotta build our own buzz, the hustle begins
I know you write rhymes but can you draw crowds?
That's the key to success, so don't get locked out
You gotta draw hype, everything is fair play
Hit the blog sites, the streets and the airplay
Avoid the negativity, any haters and low lifes
And oh right, get your live show tight
(Step 3), always step up your performance
Nothin more important than doin shows and tourin
Hit the open mics, hit your local promoters
Who are puttin on shows and need a couple local openers
Be the engineer and the manager
And the record label and the janitor
Be a pro in this whole pro-cess
The promoter, the producer and you may progress
(Step 4), and when the real work's done
You know what they say "if you build it, they will come"
The labels come callin but the tables have spun
Now you got the upper hand, you can take what you want
You think sellin records, is gonna make you income?
What I make in sales, I make in three shows and then some
Remember this, anyone can sell your music
But they can't sell your live show unless you're gonna do it
You can take this for whatever it's worth, my word
But there's no guarantees it's gonna work for sure

(Step 1), don't believe all the shit they say
(Step 2), the industry is a shady place
(Step 3), and everybody is out for self
(Step 4), so if you wanna be heard (you gotta yell!)
If you wanna make it in the music business (yeah)
I wrote a couple steps that you all could follow (ha)
Gather all around, sit down and listen (uh)
And when it's time to go in, kid go all out
It's a game, at times unrealistic
But a game all the same
Somebody wins and somebody loses
It all depends on whoever chooses
To take it most seriously

311 ~Jackolantern's Weather
Posted: 8/3/2012 1:28:57 PM
Well I beat a bad rap when I skip a soul trap
just trippin' and laughin' at the crap
dap is what I get the best skins that I hit
you know we rock the fvckin' joint and we split
singin' an rhymin's what I'm better for
when I describe I'm a scribe with a metaphor
I use a simile lightly 'cuz that $hit's played
the common way most rhymes are made, ya know
I rock like this I flow like that
but all those comparisons are just that
kickin' different styles I'll be right here
today, tomorrow, next week and next year
I always say what I feel and that is a promise
nothing in life is above being honest
sauna is cool compared to being on stage
but that's how it's gotta go in the stone age

The fame in my game I name rapture
like a polished rock I'll make it shine for sure
word is that I've traveled become unraveled
I been around the world baby gimme an apple
I'll be your boogie man rather than son-of-sam
what I am is what I am
though we don't have too long to love a day a night
we only love those who love us right back, right

The kid is smart the kid is clever
stompin' in jack-o-lantern's weather
backpack strapped 'cuz the world is cold
headphones pumpin' don't ya know
the kid is smart the kid is clever
stompin' in jack-o-latern's weather
rocks his hood and plays it mellow
while maple leaves change into yellow

and oh s--- damn homey at it again
tryin' to beat my high score since the age of ten
see my high score flashes on the back glass
I was malcontented Doug in gifted class
now here's the deal we came to heal we gonna rock it in Rio
oh no it's not a joke it's how we feel
put to test like a Sugar Ray scientist, come on
I'm always dancin' in my Sunday best
I'm betting on my bliss and my path is lit' see
the microphone is live and I'm rockin' my body
smooth like Reggie Miller in an airborne freeze frame
funky like the kung-fu that can put you to shame

The kid is smart the kid is clever
stompin' in jack-o-lantern's weather
backpack strapped 'cuz the world is cold
headphones pumpin' don't ya know
the kid is smart the kid is clever
stompin' in jack-o-latern's weather
rocks his hood and plays it mellow
while maple leaves change into yellow

I'm like hey (hey), wait a minute
give a check one two then I'm ready to begin it
with a boom boom bap coming outta your trunkies
give a fat shout out to the Phunk Junkeez
stricken like a cancer taken chances
but I love to see the girl windin' like the belly dancer
standin' up front with a tight stomach showin
me on stage singin, flowin
we just kickin' it live we just kickin' it live
'cuz if you can't kick it live you gonna die
'fraid so punk, so quit talkin' junk
you need a live show like a ball player needs a dunk

Linkin Park~A Place for My Head
Posted: 8/3/2012 1:44:50 PM
I watch how the moon sits in the sky in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
And sun doesn't give light to the moon assuming
The moon's gonna owe it one

It makes me think of how you act for me
You do favors then rapidly
You just turn around and start askin' me about
Things that you want back from me

I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I wanna be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

Maybe some day I'll be just like you
And step on people like you do
And run away all the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were

You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous, you should have known
That you'd wear out your welcome and now you see
How quiet it is all alone

I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I wanna be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away

You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away
You try to take the best of me, go away

I wanna be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Shut up!

I am so sick of the tension
(Stay)
Sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
(A)
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I'm so sick of the tension
(Way)
Sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
(Stay away from me)
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

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

And I see you...
And I know that you're so young.
And I choose you...
And I know that you're so young.
And I need you...
And I know that you're so young.
And I catch you...
And I forget that you're young.

Can I fall awake now?
Can I fall awake now?
Can I fall awake now?
Can I fall awake now?

And I hold you...
And I forget that you're young.
And I kiss you...
And I know that you're so young.
And I need you...
And I forget that you're young.
And I please you...
And I know that you're so young.

And I hurt you...
And I forget that you're young.
And I scare you...
And I forget that you're young.
And I leave you...
And I know that you're so young.
And I miss you...
And I know that you're so young.

Can I fall awake now?
Can I fall awake now?

The xx~Heart Skipped a Beat
Posted: 8/4/2012 2:58:02 AM
Please don’t say we’re done
When I’m not finished
I could give so much more
Make you feel, like never before
Welcome, they said welcome to the floor

It’s been a while
And you’ve found someone better
But I’ve been waiting too long to give this up
The more I see, I understand
But sometimes, I still need you

Sometimes, I still need you
Sometimes, I still need you
Sometimes, I still need you
Sometimes, I still need you
Sometimes, I still need you
Sometimes, I still need you
Sometimes, I still need you

And I was struggling to get in
Left waiting outside your door
I was sure
You’d give me more

No need to come to me
When I can make it all the way to you
You made it clear
You weren’t near
Near enough for me

Heart skipped a beat
And when I caught it you were out of reach
But I’m sure, I’m sure
You’ve heard it before

Heart skipped a beat
And when I caught it you were out of reach
But I’m sure, I’m sure
You’ve heard it before

Heart skipped a beat
And when I caught it you were out of reach
But I’m sure, I’m sure
You’ve heard it before

Heart skipped a beat
And when I caught it you were out of reach
But I’m sure, I’m sure
You’ve heard it before

One Day As A Lion - Wild International
Posted: 8/5/2012 4:00:59 AM
They say that in war
That truth be the first casualty
So I dig in selector
I the resurrector
Fly my shit sever your neck
Wider than ever
With my tongue dipped in funk arsenic
Burn this illusion, this lie
This straight arson shit
Your arsenal stripped
Power ain’t full jackets and clips
It’s my ability to define phenomenon
Raw Crenshaw ‘84
Boogie down before
L.A. when the war break off
Where you be take off
Stand in full face off
With the M1 millimeter
Let the rhythm of the chamber hit ‘em
Let the rich play catch with ‘em
Better yet make ‘em eat ‘em and shit ‘em
Till they so full of holes
That they drown in their own
I’m like a nail stuck
In the wrist of they Christmas
Don’t need radio
To leave their family a witness

Muhammad and Christ for life
Would lay your body down
To a tune so wild international
In the desert full of bullets
Let your body rot
With my chrome with my verse
With my body rock

In this era where DJs behave
Be paid to be slaves
We raid airwaves to be sane
And what’s raining from the station
Cash fascination
Like living dead fed agents
Distract us fast
From a disaster’s wrath for sure
Air war was flooded like the 9th ward
On the AM, on the AM
Turn and face them
Hatred and mayhem
Slay them, dangerous
I take razor steps
It’s the swing from the bling
To the bang on the left
It’s the murderous return
Boom back full strap
Your six that got clipped
You can’t clap back
With minimal lift
And criminal flow
I’m killing them soft
And billing them for
Everything stole
And once again I’m that nail
In the wrist of they Christmas
Watch me make their family a witness

Muhammad and Christ for life
Would lay your body down
To a tune so wild international
In the desert full of bullets
Let your body rot
With my chrome with my verse
With my body rock

Both Muhammad and Christ
Would lay your body down
To a tune so wild international
In the desert full of bullets
Let your body rot
With my chrome with my verse
With my body rock

International
International

Muhammad and Christ for life
Would lay your body down
To a tune so wild international
In the desert full of bullets
Let your body rot
With my chrome with my verse
With my body rock

Both Muhammad and Christ
Would lay your body down
To a tune so wild international
In the desert full of bullets
Let your body rot
With my chrome with my verse
With my body rock

Trevor Hall - Where's The Love
Posted: 8/5/2012 4:30:42 AM
So many gods but no love for the people
My mama told me that we're all made equal
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?
So many prayers but where's the prayer for peace?
My papa told me that we all must serve and feed?
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?

I got a confession
My heart is stressing for a blessing, a blessing
So, the scene is set
Dropping bombs on each other cause it's what God said
How did we let it get to this
All this fighting makes me sick
The candle has burnt out the wick
And I quit

So many gods but no love for the people
My mama told me that we're all made equal
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?
So many prayers but where's the prayer for peace?
My papa told me that we all must serve and feed?
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?

All the jackals howl the same
The truth is one but goes by many names
Well the winners write in their own history yeah
But turn their backs on, turn their backs on,
But turn their backs on reality

So many gods but no love for the people
My mama told me that we're all made equal
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?
So many prayers but where's the prayer for peace?
My papa told me that we all must serve and feed?
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?

Oh darling, dry your eyes
The world heals your cries
Pay no attention to what they may say
Tell all the demons to just go away
How can we wage war?
How can we wage it when we're under the same sky
We're under the same sky

So many gods but no love for the people
My mama told me that we're all made equal
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?
So many prayers but where's the prayer for peace?
My papa told me that we all must serve and feed?
What are we fighting for?
Why are we still at war?
Where's the love? Where's the love?

Jack Johnson~Good People
Posted: 8/7/2012 8:58:03 PM
You win
It's your show, now
So what's it gonna be
'Cause people
Will tune in
How many train wrecks do we need to see?
Before we lose touch of
We thought this was low
It's bad getting worse so

Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

They got this and that and
With a rattle a tat
Testing one two,
Now what you gonna do?
Bad news, misused,
Got too much to lose
Gimme some truth
Now whose side are we on?
Whatever you say
Turn on the boob tube
I'm in the mood to obey
So lead me astray by the way, now

Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

Sitting round feeling far away
So far away but I can feel the debris
Can you feel it?
You interrupt me from a friendly conversation
To tell me how great its all gonna be
You might notice some hesitation
'Cause it's important to you, it's not important to me
Way down by the edge of your reasons
It's beginning to show
And all I really wanna know is...

Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

They got this and that
With a rattle a tat
Testing one, two
Now what you gonna do?
Bad news, misused, give me some truth
You got too much to lose
Whose side are we on today, anyway?
OK, whatever you say.
Wrong and resolute but in the mood to obey
Station to station desensitizing the nation
Going, going, gone.

Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day's useless
Energy spent

Impassioned lovers
Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love
And has none
New mother picks up
And suckles her son
Senior citizens
Wish they were young

Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And
Which is an Illusion

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the
Dawn of history.
There lived a strange race of people...the Druids.
No one knows who they were, or what they were doing...
But their legacy remains...
Hewn into the living rock of Stonehenge...

Stonehenge, where the demons dwell
Where the banshees live and they do live well
Stonehenge
Where a man is a man and the children dance to
The pipes of pan
Stonehenge
Tis a magic place where the moon doth rise
With a dragon's face
Stonehenge
Where the virgins lie
And the prayer of devils fill the midnight sky
And you my love, won't you take my hand
We'll go back in time to that mystic land
Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow
I will take you there
I will show you how

Modest Mouse-Never Ending Math Equation
Posted: 8/8/2012 7:41:48 PM
I'm the same as I was when I was 6 years old
And oh my God I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything
On a plane, I can see the tiny lights below
And oh my God, they look so alone
Do they really feel anything?

Oh my God, I've gotta gotta gotta gotta move on
Where do you move when what you're moving from is yourself?

The universe works on a math equation
that never even ever really even ends in the end
Infinity spirals out creation
We're on the tip of its tongue, and it is saying
We aint sure where you stand
You aint machines and you aint land
And the plants and the animals, they are linked
And the plants and the animals eat each other

I'm the same as I was when I was 6 years old
And oh my God I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything
On a plane, I can see the tiny lights below
And oh my God, they look so alone
Do they really feel anything?

Oh my God, I've gotta gotta gotta gotta move on
Where do you move when what you're moving from is yourself?

The universe works on a math equation
that never even ever really even ends in the end
Infinity spirals out creation
We're on the tip of its tongue, and it is saying
We aint sure where you stand
You aint machines and you aint land
And the plants and the animals, they are linked
And the plants and the animals eat each other

Oh my God and oh my cat
I told my Dad what I need
Well I know what I have and want
But I don't know what I need
Well, he said he said he said he said
"Where we're going, I'm dead."

Atmosphere~Always Coming Back Home to You
Posted: 8/11/2012 6:30:32 AM
To all my killers and my hundred dollar billers
To emo kids that got too many feelings

He held the register open while he counted her change
I was next in line which meant I was invisible
From where I stood I could see that the till was full
He didn't look the type to play superhero
So I stepped forth and paid for my cigarettes
Crept out the stores front door to chase a little breath
Bangles in my head, shake the song off
Another manic Monday night, its gonna be a long walk

A car pulled up, a fixed up cutlass
A woman and a child climbed out and left it running
They went inside of the deli, placed an order
With the extra dollar fifty bottled water cause the daughters picky
When they came out mommy gave me a glance
That said man can love an angel but he's got to take the chance
Already knew the deal, I lit one up and walk
So they got back in the Oldsmobile, belted up, and took off

Thug love on the corner by the walgreens
Lookin at me like I'm just another square saltine
As I get closer I notice that they showing each other sketches
Out of their notebooks, reminded me of my old roots

I walk pass with a nod and a reminisce
Swear to god hip hop and comic books was my genesis
Respect the life and the fashions of the children
It's the only culture I've got, exactly what we've been building

All of a sudden I'm in front of some man
No he's a youngin but he's got a gun in his hand
He looks fifteen, he looks frantic, no he looks afraid
Immediately apprehensive til I heard him say
"Do you want this It's not mine I promise
I found it on my block in between a couple garages
Didn't wanna leave it for a child to stumble over
I don't even know how to hold it."

It was a thirty eight, the poor man's machete
Held it in my hand, thinking damn man it's heavier then expected,
Wedged it behind my belt buckle
Knowing that its evil, even thought that I could smell trouble
The extra strength felt weak,
But over there on the corner saw what I needed and proceeded to cross the
Street
Put the heat in the mail box to loose it
Figured that the post office knows whats best to do with it

Mosey down the road thinkin' bout the old
I use to roam this zone with two feet of snow
Right here, this use to be a record shop
I've gotten love, I've gotten drunk, I've gotten beat up in that parking lot
I've had my lake street pride for three decades
These alleyways, and these streetlights have seen my best days
Before I was a germ learning how to misbehave,
All the way to the grave, south side is my resting place

Took a right on Lyndale I'm getting near
But then the road became empty and the people disappeared
The clouds ran away, opened up the sky
And one by one I watched every constellation die
And there I was frozen, standing in my backyard
Face to face, eye to eye, staring at the last star
I should've known, walked all the way home
To find that she wasn't here, I'm still all alone

No matter where I am, no matter what I do
I'm always coming back home to you
They can leave me for dead they can take away my true
I'm always coming back home to you
Through the lies and the sins that ride the wind that blew
I'm always coming back home to you
As sure as the life in the garden that you grew
I'm always coming back home to you
No matter where I am, no matter what I do
I'm always coming back home to you
If only I had known what you already knew
I'm always coming back home to you
From the heaven I've had to the hell I been through
I'm always coming back home to you
I'm always coming back home to you

MGMT~Electric Feel
Posted: 8/11/2012 6:32:26 AM
All along the western front
People line up to receive
She got the power in her hand
To shock you like you won't believe
Saw her in the amazon
With the voltage running through her skin
Standing there with nothing on
She gonna teach me how to swim

I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
You turn me on with your electric feel
I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

All along the eastern shore
Put your circuits in the sea
This is what the world is for
Making electricity
You can feel it in your mind
Oh you can do it all the time
Plug it in and change the world
You are my electric girl

Said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel
I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now

Foster the People~Call it What You want
Posted: 8/11/2012 6:37:11 AM
Call it what you want
Call it what you want
I said just call it what you want
Call it what you want

Yeah we're locked up in ideas
We like to label everything
Well I'm just gonna do here what I gotta do here
'Cause I gotta keep myself free
You're ducking and moving just to hide your bruises from all your enemies
And I'm in the crossfire dodging bullets from your expectancies

We've got nothing to lose
You better run and hide
Yeah you've crossed the line
I've got a knife behind my back (just sayin')
We've got nothing to prove
Your social guides give you swollen eyes
But what I've got can't be bought so you can just

Call it what you want
Call it what you want
I said just call it what you want
Call it what you want

You've taken your words and you take your judgments
And stick them onto everything
If it don't conform to what you were born into,
Then you run the other way
You say, "now what's your style and who do you listen to?" who cares?
Well that rat race ladder-climbing fake-face smile's got nothing on me

We've got nothing to lose
You better run and hide
Yeah you've crossed the line
I've got a knife behind my back (just sayin')
We've got nothing to prove
Your social guides give you swollen eyes
But what I've got can't be bought so you can just

Call it what you want
Call it what you want
I said just call it what you want
Call it what you want

Death Cab for Cutie~Summer Skin
Posted: 8/12/2012 5:34:54 AM
Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin

I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin

On the night you left I came over
And we peeled the freckles from our shoulders
Our brand new coats so flushed and pink
And I knew your heart I couldn't win
Cause the seasons change was a conduit
And we left our love in our summer skin

Better Than Ezra~This Time of Year
Posted: 8/12/2012 5:38:22 AM
Well, there's a feeling in the air
Just like a Friday afternoon.
Yeah, you can go there if you want
Though it fades too soon.

So go on, let it be.
If there's a feeling coming over me,
Seems like it's always understood this time of year.

Well, I know there's a reason to change.
Well, I know there's a time for us.
You think about the good times
And you live with all the bad.
You can feel it in the air,
Feeling right this time of year.

Well, there's a football in the air,
Across a leaf blown field.
Yeah, and there's your first car on the road,
And the girl you'd steal.

So go on with yourself
If there's a feeling that there's something else.
Seems like it's always understood
This time of year.

Well, I know there's a reason to change.
Well, I know there's a time for us.
You think about the good times
And you live with all the bad.
You can feel it in the air,
Feeling right this time of year.

Well, there's a feeling in the air
Just like a Friday afternoon.
Yeah, you can go there if you want
Though it fades too soon.

So go on, let it be.
If there's a feeling coming over me,
Seems like it's always understood this time of year.

Well, I know there's a reason to change.
Well, I know there's a time for us.
You think about the good times
And you live with all the bad.
You can feel it in the air,
Feeling right this time of year.

Gym Class Heroes~7 Weeks
Posted: 8/12/2012 5:50:16 AM
My life's these yellow lines, concrete, and parliament butts
Exhaust fumes and rest stops who drive hard for their bucks
Load in, sound check, play show, load out, let's go, next city, oh great, off day
Hangovers, hangups, dialbacks, running make up, apologies and promises
And nobody acknowledges that boys in bands got it so damn bad
But we love like the last cigarette we'll ever have
I'm putting miles on my body, bout due for a tune up and this gas station food ain't really helping but
I'm loving every minute, every road sign's a reminder of exactly why we did it to begin with

This is how it has to be
A kiss for luck, submerge myself
And in 7 weeks resurface
Even if we don't look back again
Tired boys and wired eyes
Exposing imperfections
To the public eye we're perfect
Even if we don't look back again

I like these hotels, passports, random bag checks, day dreams of love affairs that I haven't had yet
Touch down, baggage claim, new town, different dame, same clothes, 7 days, whew, damn I need to change
And it's a lifestyle that I wouldn't recommend
Wild N Out on a level Nick Cannon couldn't comprehend (**** outta here)
We made a lot of friends and even more enemies
Some of which were genuine and others just pretend to be
It's all gravy baby, life's lovely
Even when the gray rain cloud's right above me
The girl's textin' me talkin' about gettin' all cuddly
Cause you paint a pretty picture but the frame is so ugly

This is how it has to be
A kiss for luck, submerge myself
And in 7 weeks resurface
Even if we don't look back again
Tired boys and wired eyes
Exposing imperfections
To the public eye we're perfect
Even if we don't look back again

And now it's back in a van with four of my mans
Until we catchin' a tan on the Florida sands
I feel like tourin' this land's made me more of a man
From killa California to the shores of Japan
Good times stayin' up late in Austin
Coast to coast V8 to Chicago
To gettin' up with Johnny Cupcakes in Boston
And smokin' the most grade A in Colorado
Home ain't home no more
I hug the road and kiss the concrete and sometimes I even hear her heartbeat
No matter where we go or where we at
We carry upstate on our back, it's like that

This is how it has to be
A kiss for luck, submerge myself
And in 7 weeks resurface
Even if we don't look back again
Tired boys and wired eyes
Exposing imperfections
To the public eye we're perfect
Even if we don't look back again

This is how it has to be
A kiss for luck, submerge myself
And in 7 weeks resurface
Even if we don't look back again
Tired boys and wired eyes
Exposing imperfections
To the public eye we're perfect
Even if we don't look back again

"So a lot of you don't realize.
There's a whole subculture of boys driving around in vans."
Even if we don't look back again
"Looking for your daughters, and your lottery tickets. Love it or leave it. I'm like this"
Even if we don't look back again
"I love my life. ****es."
Even if we don't look back again
Even if we don't look back again
