[i]I know I’ve never felt like this before,
I never really knew what love was for;
I dreamed,
But never did believe.

But baby, it’s time to make up your mind,
I think that tonight is when our stars align.
Honey, right now we leave the doubt behind,
Take my hand 'cause you and I are gonna,
Light the sky until it’s dawn and,
Baby you and I are gonna shine.[/i]

Hey hey do you remember when you stood in the yard
They said the world is right in front of your feet
And someday you’re gonna meet mr. Marlon Brando,
Live in a tango, build up a house of dreams
And count the daisies
Do you remember when your eyes had a drain
There was a guy behind your lashes
Showing all the pretty flashes of Humphrey Bogart eating his yoghurt
Dining with Norma Jean

Do you remember the first time you took a ride
On the vertigo pony made of Mahogany
Waving to the ducks by the surrogate clown
Uptown smashing your leather balls
Into the rusty cans shooting rabbits and monkeys
Feeding the donkeys
Waiting for the days to be blemished in frown

[i]I want to take you out and show you round the world,
Pink thing it’ll be OK.
If I could only wake you from your slumber curled,
Pink thing what would straight folks say?

That man isn’t fit to enter heaven.
That man is a sinner,
Ever burning in disgrace.
Pink thing, spit in my face,
I’d love you for it.

Anytime you call, I’ll fall,
Into madness for you pink thing.
You make me want to live.
You make me want to die.
And when I stroke your head I feel a hundred heartbeats high,
Pink thing.

I want to take you out and show you to the girls,
Pink thing they’re a whole new tribe.
If you could only see the way the way the gingham swirls,
Pink thing it’s a whole new vibe.

That man isn’t fit to be a father.
That man is a sinner,
'Fore they cast me down to die,
Pink thing, spit in my eye,
I’d love you for it.
Yes, I’d love you for it. [/i]

"[i]Since we’re feeling so anaesthetised
In our comfort zone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

We’re running out of alibis
From the second of May
Reminds me of the summer time
On this winter’s day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

Every step we take that’s synchronized
Every broken bone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

You shower me with lullabies
As you’re walking away
Reminds me that it’s killing time
On this fateful day

See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end
See you at the bitter end

From the time we intercepted
Feels a lot like suicide
Slow and sad, grown inside us
Arouse and see you’re mine
(See you at the bitter end)

Love has seen your run-around
Who wanna seek you now?
I want a peace
I’d whine out
(See you at the bitter end)

Love’s reached his side
Grab this gentleness inside
Heard a cry
Six feet down
In six weeks’ time
The mess you left
Will end
See you at the bitter end[/i]"

Bad lovin’s always been the same
He’ll push it in then push you out
I don’t think that’s what love’s about
When you ain’t got no one you act like something’s amputated
When you ain’t got no one it feels so very strange


#186

Casanova, you’re getting older
Now the world is not for you to blame
It’s just a movie rolling backwards
Randomly injecting choises that we call in vain
And the violence that you try to justify
is not a language that I still contain

How can you smile and forecast
Weather’s getting better
And you’ll soon forget her
If you let the sunshine come through
How can you smile and forecast
Weather’s getting better
If you never let a girl rain all over you
Just when I thought that my skies were a June July blue
One thousand umbrellas opened
Two thousand umbrellas opened
Ten thousand umbrellas opened to spoil the view


I won’t believe in heaven and hell
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well
No pearly gates, no thorny crown
You’re always letting us humans down
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found
And it’s the same the whole world 'round
The hurt I see helps to compound
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody’s unholy hoax
And if you’re up there you’ll perceive
That my heart’s here upon my sleeve
If there’s one thing I don’t believe in
It’s you
Dear God

But I hope that when I leave
you will still think of me,
not as I am today
but as someone you wanted to stay.

[i]Battle of the minds;
cries below, cries above
You must pick a side;
Will you choose fear? Will you choose love?

What’s it look like, this orbital ball
from the fringes of the milky way?
What’s it feel like, this orbital ball
from the fringes of the milky way?[/i]


#191

[i]We’re too vital to your cause
Dragged into your bloody wars
Secrets in my head to stay
Let me live in my own way

Prime target’s just been missed
Prime target’s just been missed
I don’t wanna be
I don’t wanna be
A security risk
A security risk[/i]

Oh I met a little girl on the marketplace
Born without a proper face
made to feel that magical sensation
A lovely voice
Like a radio
Talking with a lavatory-disarray jacuzzi-conversation flow

It was the summer of one eighty-seven
She played piano
stiff to the bone
blue in the eyes under a veil of leather
We dressed her in red
She took of her hip
And now she is gone for good

Do I care if I survive this?
Bury the dead where they’re found
In a veil of great surprises:
I wonder did you love me at all?

The only thing that keeps me from cutting my arm
Cross hatch, warm bath, Holiday Inn after dark
Signs and wonders: water stain writing the wall
Daniel’s message, blood of the moon on us all

Do I care if I despise this?
Nothing else matters, I know
In a veil of great disguises:
How do I live with your ghost?


#195

^ Whoa, so emo it makes my listening seem normal.

I bought a bird
that repeats what I say, but “I’m lonely” is all that he’s heard.

You found a guy
that is clearly the opposite me, with the black motorbike.

Fight every fight like you can win!

An iron-fisted champion,
an iron-willed fuckup.

Casey Jones walked slow to the prison cell
His face held hard as a scallop shell
"Well, I wish I wished you well,
But your last friend on Earth now calls
From the silent side of the cemetery walls
Your great cause to the moths and the rust!"
Fanning her ears with a calm in her eyes
"It’s the laws of cause and effect that you criticize
But sir, criticize them you must"
~
Shepherd the Southwest wind,
“railspikes ripped like the seam of a wineskin”
Shepherd the Northwest rain,
"frog switch slipped and that reckless beast is to blame
Ain’t it an awful shame!
And don’t it just break your heart to hear of so much pain?"
Ain’t it an awful shame!
And don’t it just break your heart,
Don’t it just break your heart,
Don’t it just break your heart.

I love mewithoutYou’s lyrics. Can’t wait till their new album.

Here comes the paranoia
Gunshots, hickery pants, pineapples, porcupines
and Pasadena pillows of kashmere skin
to make me feel all right

Don’t forget the tranquilizers
ice cream, crackers and care
NyQuils and a bottle of tequila
and a head for my hair


#199

Favorite lyric from the new mewithoutYou song

Was he a violent man?
Well he had his genocidal moments…

Indian scouts with squirrel guns, men with muzzle loaders,
Stood together heel and toe to defend the Alamo.
“You may never see your loved ones,” Travis told them that day.
“Those that want to can leave now, those who’ll fight to the death, let 'em stay.”

In the sand he drew a line with his army sabre,
Out of a hundred eighty five, not a soldier crossed the line.
With his banners a-dancin’ in the dawn’s golden light,
Santa Anna came prancin’ on a horse that was black as the night.
