"Life is just a bunch'a lyrics
To many a sad song
A bunch'a corpses six feet under
Just trying to move along

The world, yeah, it keeps getting smaller
but somehow the mountains between us get taller

And I'm still a body walking home alone
There's gotta be a place outside this coffin
To call my home

There's gotta be more than cliche lyrics
Please tell me there's more than a cliche life

I'm still just another one of them bodies walking home alone
There's gotta be a better place than eight wooden boards to call my home

There's gotta be another verse to end this song
There's gotta be something better still coming along
There's gotta be more than an endless sad song

Now I know there's something better coming along...

I'm crawling home."


Right now its really how I feel, except I'm having a really hard time with that last bit these days. I'd rather leave it out right now and let the song be totally emo, but that's the way it was written and that is where I want to get. I don't want to, but I probably still am wallowing in a coffin right now. *sigh*

Blindfolded by The Classic Crime

I transcend time
with my words
I'll build a house for you and I
we will live there together
alone and surrealize
do we just exist?
and does love persist?
the questions of purpose
and loving of destiny
our conquest for bliss is
as much hit or miss
as it is skimming
the fat off our beliefs

I walk around blindfolded
Talk
I'm not listening
I read through a thousand books
But
I forgot everything

If grace knows my name
Then I am to blame
Constantly spreading
My fear and my shame
The story exists
It's an option that ticks
But still my tongue
Cannot be trusted
It's so poetic
Like a black widow's kiss
Trembling as my muscles give...

I walk around blindfolded
Talk
I'm not listening
I read through a thousand books
But
Forgot everything

I found out the proof itself
Was
Not foolproof
And I leave my mind daily
But
You never see me move


Of course this is just one of many, you guys know how it is.[i]

"Take to the World" by Derek Webb

Go in peace to love and to serve
Let your ears ring long with what you’ve heard
And may the bread on your tongue
Leave a trail of crumbs
To lead the hungry back to the place that you are from

And take to the world this love, hope and faith
Take to the world this rare, relentless grace
And like the three in one
Know you must become what you want to save
‘cause that’s still the way
He takes to the world

Go, and go far
Take light deep in the dark
Believe what’s true
He uses all, even you
And may the bread on your tongue
Leave a trail of crumbs
To lead the hungry back to the place that you are from

And take to the world this love, hope and faith
Take to the world this rare, relentless grace
And like the three in one
Know you must become what you want to save
‘cause that’s still the way
He takes to the world

And take to the world this love, hope and faith
Take to the world this rare, relentless grace
And like the three in one
Know you must become what you want to save
‘cause that’s still the way
He takes to the world

Since we were just talking about it


Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face
The kind you'd find on someone that could save
If they don't put me away
It'll be a miracle

Do you believe you're missing out?
That everything good is happening somewhere else
With nobody in your bed
The night is hard to get through

And I will die all alone
And when I arrive I won't know anyone

Jesus Christ, I'm alone again
So what did you do those three days you were dead?
Because this problem is going to last
More than the weekend

Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die
But I'm a little bit scared of what comes after
Do I get the gold chariot
Or do I float through the ceiling

Or do I divide and pull apart
Because my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark
This ship went down in sight of land
And at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands?

I know you're coming in the night like a thief
But I've had some time, O Lord, to hone my lying technique
I know you think that I'm someone you can trust
But I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up
So do you think that we could work out a sign
So I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try
I know you're coming for the people like me
But we all got wood and nails
And we turn out hate in factories
We all got wood and nails
And we turn out hate in factories
We all got wood and nails
And we sleep inside of this machine


Brand New - Jesus Christ, from the album The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me

Oldie but goodie...

A court is in session, a verdict is in
No appeal on the docket today
Just my own sin
The walls are cold and pale
The cage made of steel
Screams fill the room
Alone I drop and kneel
Silence now the sound
My breath the only motion around
Demons cluttering around
My face showing no emotion
Shackled by my sentence
Expecting no return
Here there is no penance
My skin begins to burn

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

I hear a thunder in the distance
See a vision of a cross
I feel the pain that was given
On that sad day of loss
A lion roars in the darkness
Only he holds the key
A light to free me from my burden
And grant me life eternally

Should have been dead
On a Sunday morning
Banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

[Guitar break]

I cry out to God
Seeking only his decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison
I cry out to God
Seeking only his decision
Gabriel stands and confirms
I've created my own prison

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

(And I said oh) So I held my head up high
Hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
(And I said oh) We're all held captive
Out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one

Should've been dead on a Sunday morning
banging my head
No time for mourning
Ain't got no time

Those lyrics are really in my head lately. Were it not for Easter morning...

~~~~~~~

Can I be dreaming once again?
I'm reaching helpless I descend
You're leading deeper through this maze
I'm not afraid

I'm lost in you everywhere I run
Everywhere I turn I'm finding something new
I'm lost in you something I can't fight
I cannot escape
I can spend my life lost in you! Lost in you!

Your whispers fill these empty halls
I'm searching for you as you call
I'm bracing, chasing after you
I need you more

I'm lost in you everywhere I run
Everywhere I turn I'm finding something new
I'm lost in you something I can't fight
I cannot escape
I can spend my life lost in you!

I could never be the same here
Something that I never could erase
I could never look away
I lost myself in you!
It's all over now!

Lost in you! Everywhere I run
Lost in you! Everywhere I run!
Lost in you!
Lost in you!

~Lost, by Red

Michal, that reminds me of my FAVORITE song. Another one by Red.

Pieces

I'm here again
A thousand miles away from you
A broken mess, just scattered pieces of who I am
I tried so hard
Thought I could do this on my own
I've lost so much along the way

Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole

I've come undone
But you make sense of who I am
Like puzzle pieces in your eye

Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole!

I tried so hard! So hard!
I tried so hard!

Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole
So you can make me whole

Katie, you're a brave girl
And I know it's only just started
But I'm gonna be there at six
With some flowers on sticks
That were clipped just to make the weak strong
And Katies it's a strange world
And girls can get so broken hearted
But if it were me and the universe
I'd get the worst of this gong

And Katie
Katie, I'm sorry
That in your condition
The sunshines been missing
But Katie
Don't believe that it isnt there
Oh and Katie
Katie, be happy
This world can be ugly
But isn't it beautiful
Not really here
And really not there
We're really not there

Katie, you're a brave girl
Courage is something I'll need now
Because it's been a hell of a day
I've spent fading away
But we all fade sometimes
I believe
That Katie it's a strange world
As I watch our tables get turned round
But you've got the strength that I've lost
Who'd of thought you would be carrying me

And Katie
Katie, I'm sorry
That in your condition
The sunshines been missing
But Katie
Don't believe that it isnt there
Oh and Katie
Katie, be happy
This world can be ugly
But isn't it beautiful
Not really here
And really not there

Woahwoah, woah, Woahwoah, woah
It's not the end of the world
It's not the end of the world
It's not the end of the world
'Cause the cops wouldn't break up this party

And Katie
Katie, I'm sorry
That in your condition
The sunshines been missing
But lately
I don't believe that it isnt there
Oh and Katie
Katie, be happy
This world can be ugly
But isn't it beautiful
Not really here
And really not there
I said we're not really here
And really not there
We're really not there

Katie, you're a brave girl
And I know it's only just started

The Classic Crime is definitely one of my favorite bands when it comes to lyrics...

Right now, I know it's older, but from CC it's "Who Needs Air?":

[i]My addiction to danger like the rush of the sea,
Like a wave on the rocks the lessons crash down on me.
I don't need to prove the world to you only to myself.
So step back and look away as I dive into the swell.

I'm drowning, but I don't care,
'Cause when you got what I got, what I got
Who needs air?[i]

Kinda reminds me of the Circle, right there. But it's mainly how I feel lately. Smile


From Children 18:3, "All My Balloons Are Popping":

[i]But the tree was not yet down as she lifted the flag
from the bloody ground, whispering:
'Gallons of gas and a makeshift cast
And I'm still no further from nowhere fast'
Listen! Downstairs the doorbell's ringing
We've been waiting
I've been waiting

The words I wrote are a broken chain
Holding me from the criminally insane
But its gone and there's no stopping
All my balloons are popping[i]

Super addicting beat. The words get into your mind and dun leave. o.o


And finally, from Head, "Save Me From Myself":

[i]Can't quit
I tried it
Your love?
Denied it
Can't fake it
I hate it
Please help me
God
Save me from myself
I'm beggin you
God
Save me from my hell
...
Father! Thank You
Father! I live for You now!
Oh my God I live For You now[i]


I have too many songs going through my head right now to list them all either...that's only a small part of what's playing. Very Happy

Dude. And all Red songs. All of them. I love Red. Very Happy

mewithoutYou- Tie Me Up! Untie Me!


I was looking at the leaves, climbing to the tops of the trees...
But you were nowhere to be found;
Just beneath all the green you were buried like a little seed...
Among the roots and underground.
I was licking at the leaves, but I was in short sleeves and you,
You were like some sickness that I caught;
And my sweetheart moved away, swept off like garbage in the alleyway...
And I need more grace than I thought.

(Oh, please, brother, I am far... brother, I am far away... brother, I am far away from everything.
Oh, brother, I am far... brother, I am far away... brother! I am far away from everything good!)

She's like a hot cloth on a fevered head,
And like a needle she leads me (while I follow like thread)
Tie me up! Untie me! All this wishing I was dead is getting old...
IT'S GETTING OLD!!
... it goes on, but it's old.

I was swimming through the waves for what must have been days...
But could find no relief;
When I started sinking down I thought for certain I would drown...
Until I saw you in the ocean,
Underneath all the bright colored fish tell of a treasure in a dull shell...
"Such subtlety, so easily missed!"
You, my hidden pearl of pure and perfect love,
And I'm the living example of 100% the opposite of this.

(If I ask the same questions... well, yes, sir, I ask the same questions...
Well, maybe I repeat myself from time to time.
But if I ask the same questions... and then I know I ask the same questions,
It's because everyone who answers me is a liar!!)

She's like the hot cloth on a fevered head,
And like a needle she leads me (while I follow like thread)
But you untied me... didn't You untie me, Lord?
And now I haven't even thought about killing myself in almost five months.

These are the lyrics to a Thai song that I really feel like is talking about Thailand to me.

Every scene, every episode
Never fades no matter how much time goes by
And every scene, every episode, now that I've lost you
Only makes me realize what I am

That I’m the biggest fool of them all
I had true love, but I couldn’t nourish it
By the time I realized how much it was worth, I’d already lost it
And now it breaks my heart to think of what could’ve been
Because all I can do is dream

Piecing it back together like a picture that was torn
Could our paths ever continue on as before?
Or must I force my heart to accept this?

Because every scene, every episode
Never fades no matter how much time goes by
Every scene, every episode, now that I've lost you
Only makes me realize what I am

That I’m the biggest fool of them all
I had true love, but I couldn’t nourish it
By the time I realized how much it was worth, I’d already lost it
And now it breaks my heart to think of what could’ve been
Because all I can do is dream

Please tell me! You must know where that door is to yesterday
To the days when I still had you
I want another chance to care for you again

I Miss You - Blink-182

Hello there the angel from my nightmare

The shadow in the background of the morgue

The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley

We can live like Jack and Sally if we want

Where you can always find me

And we'll have Halloween on Christmas

And in the night we'll wish this never ends

We'll wish this never ends



(I miss you I miss you)

(I miss you I miss you)



Where are you and I'm so sorry

I cannot sleep I cannot dream tonight

I need somebody and always

This sick strange darkness

Comes creeping on so haunting every time

And as I stared I counted

The Webs from all the spiders

Catching things and eating their insides

Like indecision to call you

and hear your voice of treason

Will you come home and stop this pain tonight

Stop this pain tonight



Don't waste your time on me you're already

The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)

Don't waste your time on me you're already

The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)



Don't waste your time on me you're already

The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)

Don't waste your time on me you're already

The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)

Don't waste your time on me you're already

The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)

Don't waste your time on me you're already

The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)



I miss you (miss you miss you)

I miss you (miss you miss you)

I miss you (miss you miss you)

I miss you (miss you miss you)

(I miss you miss you)

There isn't much that I feel I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

I don't care for fancy things
Or to take part in the vicious race
But to provide for mine who ask
I will, with heart, on my father's grave

I don't mean to seem like I care about material things
Like our social stats
I just want four walls and adobe slats for my girls

Golden rod and the 4-H stone
The things I brought you
When I found out you had cancer of the bone

Your father cried on the telephone
And he drove his car to the Navy yard
Just to prove that he was sorry

In the morning through the window shade
When the light pressed up against your shoulder blade
I could see what you were reading

Oh the glory that the lord has made
And the complications you could do without
When I kissed you on the mouth

Tuesday night at the bible study
We lift our hands and pray over your body
But nothing ever happens

I remember at Michael's house
In the living room when you kissed my neck
And I almost touched your blouse

In the morning at the top of the stairs
When your father found out what we did that night
And you told me you were scared

Oh the glory when you ran outside
With your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied
And you told me not to follow you

Sunday night when I cleaned the house
I find the card where you wrote it out
With the pictures of your mother

On the floor at the great divide
With my shirt tucked in and my shoes untied
I am crying in the bathroom

In the morning when you finally go
And the nurse runs in with her head hung low
And the cardinal hits the window

In the morning in the winter shade
On the first of March on the holiday
I thought I saw you breathing

Oh the glory that the lord has made
And the complications when I see his face
In the morning in the window

Oh the glory when he took our place
But he took my shoulders and he shook my face
And he takes and he takes and he takes

Casimir Pulaski Day ~ Sufjan Stevens

So I got your message
And it's been a long time
Since we have spoken
Face to face

I can't help but question
Your cause of interest
Just left a deathlist
Buried in their graves

Why now?
When I was feeling just content enough
To forget you
I found skeletons grow stronger
When kept from the light

I would rather die
Than admit that I
Don't know, don't know
I would rather die
Than admit that I
Don't know, don't know
You would rather be alone
Than admit that you were wrong
Than admit that you were wrong

There's blood on the freeway
Painting a poison's past
Kissed with a heartbreak
Washed away

You're back to your old ways
Carelessly leaving tracks
The road you have chosen
I refuse to take

Why now?
When I was feeling just content enough
To forget you
I found skeletons grow stronger
When kept from the light

I would rather die
Than admit that I
Don't know, don't know
I would rather die
Than admit that I
Don't know, don't know
You would rather be alone
Than admit that you were wrong
Than admit that you were wrong

I would rather die
Than admit that I
Don't know, don't know
I would rather die
Than admit that I
Don't know, don't know
You would rather be alone

Why now?
When I was feeling just content enough
To forget you
I found skeletons grow stronger
When kept in the rearview

Why now?
When I was feeling just content enough
To forget you
I found skeletons grow stronger
When kept in the rearview
In the rearview

I walked the line
Leave it all behind
I've been waiting forever
Lets go back in time
When I could read your mind
So long I've been waiting

It took the seasons going by
To know its not my fault

I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
Tried to be everything that you ever wanted
I tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter
Tried to be everything but you

Its been so long
Since youve been home
I used to wait up forever
I used to say a prayer
Wishing you were there
And im still waiting

You told me once
You'd show up
But i fell for that
Before I fell to pieces
Then I woke up
To no one,
Just a picture of Jesus
And a house left in pieces


It took the seasons going by
To know its not my fault

I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
Tried to be everything that you ever wanted
I tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter
Tried to be everything but you

I wanted you
I need you
I want to believe you [x2]

I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
tried to be everything but you

I tried to be perfect, tried to be honest
Tried to be everything that you ever wanted
I tried to be stronger, tried to be smarter
Tried to be everything but you

I was following the pack
All swallowed in their coats
With scarves of red tied around their throats
To keep their little heads
From falling in the snow
And I turned around and there you go
And, Michael, you would fall
And turn the white snow red as strawberries
In the summertime


Fleet Foxes "White Winter Hymnal"


How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find any truth in your lies
And now my heart stumbles on things I don't know
This weakness I feel I must finally show

Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free
Har har, har har, har har, har har

In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
You were made to meet your maker



Can you lie next to her
And give her your heart, your heart
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her
And confess your love, your love
As well as your folly
And can you kneel before the king
And say I'm clean, I'm clean

Chorus:
But tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with all my heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with all my heart

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brake, the brake
You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections

Chorus

Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

Miserable At Best - Mayday Parade

Katie, don't cry, I know
You're trying your hardest
And the hardest part is letting go
Of the nights we shared
Ocala is calling and you know it's haunting
But compared to your eyes, nothing shines quite as bright
And when we look to the sky, its not mine, but i want it so

Let's not pretend like you're alone tonight
(I know he's there)
You're probably hanging out and making eyes
(while across the room, he stares)
I bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
And ask my girl to dance, and she'll say yes

Because these words were never easier for me to say
Or her to second guess
But I guess
That I can live without you but
Without you I'll be miserable at best

You're all that I hoped I'd find
In every single way
And everything I would give
Is everything you couldn't take
Cause nothing feels like home, you're a thousand miles away
And the hardest part of living
Is just taking breaths to stay

Because I know I'm good for something
I just haven't found it yet
But I need it

So let's not pretend like you're alone tonight
(I know he's there)
You're probably hanging out and making eyes
(while across the room, he stares)
I bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
And ask my girl to dance, and she'll say yes

Because these words were never easier for me to say
Or her to second guess
But I guess
That I can live without you but
Without you I'll be miserable at best

Ladada ladada ladadaoh ohhh

And this will be the first time in a week
That I'll talk to you
And I can't speak
It's been three whole days since I've had sleep
Because I dream of his lips on your cheek
And I got the point that I should leave you alone
But we both know that I'm not that strong
And I miss the lips that made me fly

So let's not pretend like you're alone tonight
(I know he's there)
You're probably hanging out and making eyes
(while across the room, he stares)
I bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
And ask my girl to dance, and she'll say yes

Because these words were never easier for me to say
Or her to second guess
But I guess
That I can live without you but
Without you I'll be miserable
And I can live without you
But without you I'll be miserable
And I can live without you
Oh, without you I'll be miserable at best

O, Lord of the Lost
Lead to the swamp
In half-light
Where our shadows move
Black water pools
And Spanish moss

This is when you feel us most
When the light slips away
And the old songs carry
In the wind

Bound by the great oak
Remains of home
We are the long-gone
Oh whispering ghosts
Days long ago
And silver-grey hair

This is when you feel us most
When the light slips away
And cicadas begin
To sing

You feel the eyes
The waiting eyes
Our shape takes root in half-light

You feel the eyes
The watching eyes
Blinking along the edge of darkness

This is when you feel us most
When the light slips away
And the old songs carry

This is when you feel us most
When the light slips away
And the old songs carry
In the wind

Half Light ~ Orenda Fink
