Alice Cooper – “School’s Out”>

[See my random ramblings about this song here.]

Well we got no choice
All the girls and boys
Makin’ all that noise
‘Cause they found new toys
Well we can’t salute ya
Can’t find a flag
If that don’t suit ya
That’s a drag

School’s out for summer
School’s out forever
School’s been blown to pieces

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks

Well we got no class
And we got no principals [principles?]
And we got no innocence
We can’t even think of a word that rhymes

School’s out for summer
School’s out forever
School’s been blown to pieces

No more pencils
No more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks

Out for summer
Out till fall
We might not go back at all

School’s out forever
School’s out for summer
School’s out with fever
School’s out completely

Audioslave – “I Am the Highway”

Pearls and swine bereft of me [or something like that?]
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow or pity
For leaving I feel

I am not your rolling wheels
I am a highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

Friends and liars
Don’t wait for me
Cause I’ll get on
All by myself
I put millions of miles
Under my heels
And still too close to you
I feel

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night
The night

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon
I am the night

Ben Folds Five – “Don’t Change Your Plans”

Sometimes I get the feeling
That I won’t be on this planet
For very long
I really like it here
I’m quite attached to it
I hope I’m wrong

All I really wanna say
You’re the reason I wanna stay
I loved you ‘fore I met you
And I met you just in time
‘Cause there was nothing left

I sat here on my suitcase
In our empty new apartment
Till the sun went down
And I walked back down the stairs
With all my bags and drove away
You must be freaking out

All I know’s I’ve gotta be
Where my heart says I oughta be
It often makes no sense, in fact,
I never understand these things I feel

Don’t change
Your plans
For me.
I won’t
Move to
LA.
The leaves
Are falling
Back east.
That’s where I’m gonna stay

You have made me smile again
In fact, I might be sore from it
It’s been a while
I know we’ve been together
Many times before, I’ll see you on
The other side

But don’t change
Your plans
For me.
I won’t
Move to
LA.
The leaves
Are falling
Back east.
That’s where I’m going to stay

All I really wanna say
Is you’re the reason I wanna stay
But destiny is calling and won’t hold
And when my time is up, I’m outta here

All I know is I’ve gotta be
Where my heart says I oughta be
It often makes no sense, in fact
I never understand these things
I feel

I love you, goodbye
I love you, goodbye

Ben Harper – “Forever”

Not talking bout a year
No not three or four
I don’t want that kind of forever in my life anymore
Forever always seems to be around when it begins
But forever never seems to be around when it ends

So give me your forever
Please, your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

People spend so much time
Every single day
Runnin round all over town giving their forever away
But no, not me, I won’t let my forever roam
And now I hope I can find my forever a home

So give me your forever
Please, your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

Like a handless clock with numbers
An infinite of time
No, not the forever found only in the mind
Forever always seems to be around when things begin
But forever never seems to be around when things end

So give me your forever
Please, your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

Ben Harper – “Waiting on an Angel”

Waiting on an angel
One to carry me home
Hope you come to see me soon
Cause I don’t wanna go alone
I don’t wanna go alone

Now angel, won’t you come by me
Angel, hear my plea
Take my hand, lift me up
So that I can fly with thee
So that I can fly with thee

And I’m waiting for an angel
And I know it won’t be long
To find myself a resting place
In my angel’s arms
In my angel’s arms

So speak kind to a stranger
Cause you’ll never know
It just might be an angel, oh,
Knocking at your door
Knocking at your door

And I’m waiting for an angel
And I know it won’t be long
To find myself a resting place
In my angel’s arms
In my angel’s arms

Waiting on an angel
One to carry me home
Hope you come and see me soon
Cause I don’t wanna go alone
I don’t wanna go alone
Don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna go alone

Ben Harper – “Walk Away”

Oh no, here comes that sun again
It means another day without you my friend
And it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself
And it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else

And it’s so hard to do
And so easy to say
But sometimes, sometimes
You just have to walk away
Walk away

So many people to love in my life
Why do I worry about one?
But you put the happy in my -ness
You put the good times into my fun

And it’s so hard to do
And so easy to say
But sometimes, sometimes
You just have to walk away
Walk away
And head for the door

We’ve tried the goodbye
So many days
We walk in the same direction
So that we could never stray

They say if you love somebody
Then you have got to set them free
But I would rather be locked to you
Than live in this pain and misery

They say time will make all this go away away
But it’s time that has taken my tomorrows and turned them into yesterdays
And once again, that rising sun is dropping on down
And once again you my friend are nowhere to be found

And it’s so hard to do
And so easy to say
But sometimes, sometimes
You just have to walk away
Walk away
And head for the door

You just walk away
Walk away

Bree Sharp – “David Duchovny”

It’s Sunday night, I am curled up in my room
The TV light fills my heart like a balloon
I hold it in as best I can
I know I’m just another fan
But I can’t help feeling I could love this secret agent man
And I can’t

Wait anymore for him to discover me
I’ve got it bad for David Duchovny
David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?
Why won’t you love?

My friends all tell me, “girl you know it’s just a show”
But deep within his eyes I see me wrapped up like a bow
Watching the sky for a sign
The FBI is on my mind
I’m waiting for the day when my lucky stars align
In the form of

David Duchovny floating above me
In the alien light of the spaceship of love, I need
David Duchovny hovering above me
American Heathcliff, brooding and comely
David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?
Why won’t you love me? Why won’t you love me?

So smooth and so smart
He’s abducted my heart
And I’m falling apart
From the looks I receive
From those eyes I can’t leave
You can say I’m naive
But he told me to believe

My bags are packed, I am ready for my flight
Want to put and end to my daydream days and sleepless nights
Sitting like a mindless clone
Wishing he would tap my phone
Just to hear the breath of the man, the myth, the monotone
And I would say

David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?
Why won’t you love me? Why won’t you love me?
David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?
Why won’t you love me? Why won’t you love me?
David Duchovny I want you to love me
To kiss and to hug me, debrief and debug me
David Duchovny, I know you could love me
I’m sweet and I’m cuddly, I’m gonna kill Scully
David Duchovny, why won’t you love me?
Why won’t you love me? Why won’t you love me?

I’ll be waiting…
In Nevada…

Cake – “Love You Madly”

I don’t want to wonder if this is a blunder
I don’t want to worry whether we’re goin’ to stay together
Till we die
I don’t want to jump in unless this music’s thumping
All the dishes rattle in the cupboards when the
Elephants arrive

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly
I want to love you, love you
Love you madly

I don’t want to fake it I just want to make it
The ornaments look pretty but they’re pulling down the branches
Of the tree
I don’t want to think about it I don’t want to talk about it
When I kiss your lips I want to sink down to the bottom
Of the sea

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly
I want to love you, love you
Love you madly

I don’t want to hold back I don’t want to slip down
I don’t want to think back to the one thing that I know I
Should have done
I don’t want to doubt you, know everything about you
I don’t want to sit across the table from you
Wishing I could run

I want to love you madly
I want to love you now
I want to love you madly
I want to love you, love you
Love you madly

Dave Matthwes Band – “Recently” (Live at Folsom Field)

Some people like to drink
And some people don’t
Some people like to get drunk as hell
And some won’t
Some people like to burn one down
And some like to burn it up, burn it up
Cause some people do and, well,
Some people don’t
But its ok cause that’s just the way it should be you see

Some people do
Some people don’t
Some people will
And others they won’t
Some people do
Some people don’t
Some people do
Some people don’t

Recently I’ve been
All content and dreaming I have been
‘Cause I been lately seeing
Little bit of this woman live on my street

People stare and we just ignore, and we just ignore everything
People stare and we just ignore them
And they go away, go away, go away

She comes to me
I watch her drink
I watch her comb her hair
Both say that we both never before have
Felt as recently

People stare and we just ignore
What’s the use in hiding out
She says all the time
Let their eyes do the worrying about it

She and me go to places quiet
Where we are quite alone
Kiss and we hold together
We will be until we’re done

People stare and we just ignore
What’s the use in hiding out
She says all the time
Let their eyes do the worrying about

Walk and talk, we both do quite well
And kissing all the time, all the time
And I’m looking forward to much more

Dave Matthews Band – “Where Are You Going?”

Where are you going?
With your long face
Pulling down
Don’t hide away
Like an ocean
That you can’t see but you can smell
And the sound of waves crash down

I am no superman
I have no reasons for you
I am no hero oh, that’s for sure
But I do know one thing
Is where you are is where I belong
I do know where you go
Is where I want to be

Where are you going?
Where do you go?
Are you looking for answers
To questions under the stars?
Well, if along the way
You are grown weary
You can rest with me until
A brighter day and you’re okay

I am no superman
I have no answers for you
I am no hero oh, that’s for sure
But I do know one thing
Is where you are is where I belong
I do know where you go
Is where I want to be

Where are you going?
Where do you go?

Where do you go?
Where are you going?

Where do you go?
I am no superman
I have no answers for you
I am no hero oh, that’s for sure
But I do know one thing
Is where you are is where I belong
I do know where you go
Is where I want to be

Where are you going?
Where do you go?
Tell me, where are you going?
Where?
Well, let’s go

Dave Matthews Band – “You Might Die Trying”

To change the world
Start with one step
However small
First step is hardest of all
Once you get your gait
You’ll be walking tall
You said you never did
Cause you might die tryin
Cause you might die tryin
Cause you

If you close your eyes
Because the house is on fire
And think you couldn’t move
Until the fire dies
The things you never did
Cause you might die tryin
Cause you might die tryin
You’ll be as good as dead
Cause you might die tryin
Cause you might die tryin

If you give you begin to live
If you give you begin to live
You begin
You get the world
If you give you begin to live
You get the world
You get the world
If you give you begin to live
You might die tryin….

Death Cab For Cutie – “Passenger Seat”

[See my random ramblings about this song here.]

I roll the window down and then begin to breathe in
The darkest country road and the strong scent of evergreen
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home

Then looking upwards I strain my eyes and try
To tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home

“Do they collide?” I ask, and you smile
With my feet on the dash the world doesn’t matter

When you feel embarrassed I’ll be your pride
When you need directions I’ll be the guide
For all time
For all time

Eve 6 – “Inside Out”

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
Swallow my doubt
Turn it inside out
Find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin ’round into a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous, then I’m through with you

I burn, burn like a wicker cabinet
Chalk white and oh so frail
I see our time has gotten stale

The ticktock of the clock is painful
All sane and logical
I want to tear it off the wall

I hear words in clips and phrases
I think sick like ginger ale
My stomach turns and I exhale

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
I would swallow my doubt
Turn it inside out
Find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin ’round into a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous, then I’m through with you

SoCal is where my mind states
But it’s not my state of mind
I’m not as ugly, sad as you

Or am I origami?
Fold it up and just pretend
Demented as the motives in your head

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
I would swallow my doubt
Turn it inside out
Find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin ’round into a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous, then I’m through with you

I alone am the one you don’t know you need
Take heed, feed your ego
Make me blind when your eyes close
Sink when you get close, tie me to the bedpost

I alone am the one you don’t know you need
You don’t know you need me
Make me blind when your eyes close
Tie me to the bedpost

I would swallow my pride
I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
Swallow my doubt
Turn it inside out
Find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin ’round to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous, then I’m through
Now I’m through with you

Through with you

Rendezvous then I’m through with you

Fuel – “Shimmer”

She calls me from the cold
Just when I was low, feeling short of stable
And all that she intends
And all she keeps inside, isn’t on the label

She says she’s ashamed
And can she take me for a whirl
And can I be a friend, we’ll forget the past
Or maybe I’m not able
And I break at the bend

We’re here and now, will we ever be again
‘Cause I have found
All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade
Away again

She dreams a champagne dream
Strawberry surprise, pink linen on white paper
Lavender and cream
Fields of butterflies, reality escapes her

She says that love is for fools who fall behind
And I’m somewhere in between
I never really know
A killer from a savior
‘Til I break at the bend

We’re here and now, will we ever be again
‘Cause I have found
All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade
Away again

It’s too far away for me to hold
It’s too far away…
It’s too far away for me to hold
It’s too far away…

Guess I’ll let it go

G. Love & Special Sauce – “Rodeo Clowns”
(written by Jack Johnson)

Sweepin’ the floors open up the doors, yeah
Turn on the lights gettin’ ready for the night
Nobody’s romancin’ ’cause it’s too early for dancin’
But here comes the music

Bright lights flashin’ to cover up your lack of soul
Many people, so many problems, so many reasons to buy
Another round drink it down just another night on the town

With the big man, money man, better than the other man
He got the plan with the million dollar give a damn
But nobody understands he’ll become a smaller man
The bright lights keep flashing, man, the women keep on dancin’

With the clowns, yeah yeah yeah
Pick me up when I’m down, yeah yeah
The rodeo clowns, yeah yeah yeah
Pick me up when I’m down, yeah yeah

The disco ball spinning all the music and the women
And the shots of tequila, man, they say that they need ya
But what they really need is just a little room to breathe

Teeny bopping disco queen she barely understands
Her dreams of belly button rings and other kinds of things
Symbolic of change but the thing that is strange
Is that changes occurred

And now she’s just a part of the herd, yeah yeah yeah
Man I thought that you heard, yeah yeah
The changes occurred, yeah yeah yeah
She’s just a part of the herd, yeah yeah

Lights out, shut down, late night, wet ground
You walk by, look at him but he can’t look at you, yeah
You might feel pity but he only feels the ground because
You understand moods but he only knows let down

By the corner there’s another one
Reaching out a hand coming from a broken man
Well, you try to live, but he’s done trying
Not dead but definitely dying

With the rest of the clowns, yeah yeah
With the rest of the clowns, yeah yeah

The rodeo clowns, yeah yeah yeah
Pick me up when I’m down, yeah yeah
The rodeo clowns, yeah yeah yeah
Pick me up when I’m down, yeah yeah

Sweeping the floors open up the doors, yeah
Turn on the lights getting ready for the night
Nobody’s romancing ’cause it’s too early for dancin’
But here comes the music

Guster – “What You Wish For”

Woke up today
To everything gray
And all that I saw
Just kept going on and on
Sweep all the pieces under the bed
Close all the curtains and cover my head
And what you wish for
Won’t come true
You aren’t surprised love
Are you?

If this serenade
(Repeat after me . . . just a little bit closer)
Is not what you want
(And what do I say . . . caught up in a lie)
It just how it is
(It won’t change a thing . . . just a little bit closer)

It keeps going on and on

Come out come out wherever you are
Would you do it all over
Right from the start?
And what you wish for
Won’t come true
You aren’t surprised love
Are you?

And what you wish for
Won’t come true
You aren’t surprised love
Are you?
Once had this dream
Crashed down in Oz
Not black and white
But where the colors are

I never dreamed that
I could let it go
And I will get
What I deserve
Sweep all the secrets
under the bed
Open the curtains
forget what I said

And what you wish for
Could come true
You act surprised, love
Are you?

Heart – “Magic Man”

[Um... I actually don't really care much about the lyrics to this song. It's just that the tune is so stinkin' catchy it gets stuck in my head all the time. So, I guess I might put the lyrics up here one day when I'm not feeling lazy, but until then you'll have to look them up yourself if you're aching to know them.]

Jack Johnson – “No Other Way”

When your mind is a mess so is mine
I cant sleep cause it hurts when I think
My thoughts aren’t at peace
With the plans that we make
Chances we take
They’re not yours they’re not mine
There’s waves that can break
All the words that we say
And the words that we mean
Words can fall short
Can’t see the unseen
Cause the world is awake
For somebody’s sake now
Please close your eyes woman
Please get some sleep

And know that if I knew all of the answers I would
Not hold them from you know all the things that I know
We told each other
There is no other way

Well too much silence can be misleading
You’re drifting I can hear it in the way that your breathing
We don’t really need to find reason
Cause out the same door that it came well its leaving its leaving
Leaving like a day that’s done and part of a season
Resolve is just a concept that’s as dead as the leaves
But at least we can sleep
Its all that we need
When we wake we would find
Our minds will be free to go to sleep

And know that if I knew all of the answers I would
Not hold them from you know all the things that i know
‘Cause we told each other
There is no other way

Journey – “Don’t Stop Believin’”

Just a small-town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train going anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlights, people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice just one more time

Some will win, some will lose
Some are gonna sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlights, people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
Streetlight, people

Don’t stop believin’
Hold on
Streetlight, people

Don’t stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Streetlight, people

Michelle Malone – “Tonic”

All my life I’ve been waiting for this moment to arrive
Spent my days turned around and looking back the other way
Times like these can hit so hard
Wasted years swallowing the tears
Swallowing the fear

Time can bring you to your knees, if you don’t recognize them
Let them flow then you can go and let them shine for all the world to see

In my dreams I’ve stood blind and waiting by the midnight sea
Send me light so that I can see tomorrow and believe
Times like these can turn the tide
Wasted years swallowing the tears
Swallowing the fear

Time can bring you to your knees, if you don’t recognize them
Let them flow then you can go and let them shine for all the world to see

All my life I’ve been waiting for this moment to arrive
All my life, I’m gonna let it shine

Modest Mouse – “Ocean Breathes Salty”

Your body may be gone, I’m gonna carry you in.
In my head, in my heart, in my soul.
And maybe we’ll get lucky and we’ll both live again.
Well I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. Don’t think so.

Well that is that and this is this.
You tell me what you want and I’ll tell you what you get.
You get away from me. You get away from me.
Collected my belongings and I left the jail.
Well thanks for the time, I needed to think a spell.
I had to think awhile. I had to think awhile.

The ocean breathes salty, won’t you carry it in?
In your head, in your mouth, in your soul.
And maybe we’ll get lucky and we’ll both grow old.
Well I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. I hope so.

Well that is that and this is this.
You tell me what you want and I’ll tell you what you get.
You get away from me. (You get away from me) You get away from me.
Collected my belongings and I left the jail.
Well thanks for the time, I needed to think a spell.
I had to think awhile. (I had to think awhile) I had to think awhile.

Well that is that and this is this.
Will you tell me what you saw and I’ll tell you what you missed,
when the ocean met the sky. (You missed, you missed)
You missed when time and life shook hands and said goodbye. (You missed)
When the earth folded in on itself. (You missed)
And said “Good luck, for your sake I hope heaven and hell (You missed, you missed)
are really there, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.” (You missed, you missed)
You wasted life, why wouldn’t you waste death? (You missed, you missed)
You wasted life, why wouldn’t you waste death?

The ocean breathes salty, won’t you carry it in?
In your head, in your mouth, in your soul.
The more we move ahead the more we’re stuck in rewind.
Well I don’t mind. I don’t mind. How the hell could I mind?

Well that is that and this is this.
You tell me what you want and I’ll tell you what you get.
You get away from me. (You get away from me) You get away from me.

Well that is that and this is this.
Will you tell me what you saw and I’ll tell you what you missed,
when the ocean met the sky. (You missed, you missed)
You wasted life, why wouldn’t you waste the afterlife?

The Postal Service – “Brand New Colony”

[See my random ramblings about this song here.]

I’ll be the grapes fermented, bottled and served with the table set
In my finest suit like a perfect gentlemen
I’ll be the fire escape that’s bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day

I’ll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning
In an open tab when your judgment’s on the brink
I’ll be the phonograph that plays your favorite albums back
As you’re lying there drifting off to sleep
I’ll be the platform shoes, undo what heredity’s done to you
You won’t have to strain to look into my eyes
I’ll be your winter coat buttoned, zipped straight to the throat
With the collar up so you won’t catch a cold

I want to take you far from the cynics in this town
And kiss you on the mouth
We’ll cut our bodies free from the tethers of this scene
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change, we’ll give ourselves new names
Identities erased
The sun will heat the grounds under our bare feet
In this brand new colony
This brand new colony

Everything will change, ooo ooo
Everything will change, ooo ooo
Everything will change, ooo ooo

R.E.M. – “I’ll Take The Rain”

[See my random ramblings about this song here.]

The rain came down
The rain came down
The rain came down on me

The wind blew strong
The summer song
Fades to memory

I knew you when
I loved you then
The summer’s young and helpless

You laid me bare
You marked me there
The promises we made

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life
So why can’t we?
You cling to this
You claim the best
If this is what you’re offering
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain

The nighttime creases
Summer schemes
And stretches out to stay
The sun shines down
You came around
You love easy days

But now the sun
The winter’s come
I wanted just to say
That if I hold
I’d hope you’d fold
Open up inside
Inside of me

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life
So why can’t we?
You cling to this
You claim the best
If this is what you’re offering
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain

This winter song
I’ll sing along
I’ve searched its still refrain
I’ll walk alone
I’ve given this, take wing
Celebrate the rain

I used to think
As birds take wing
They sing through life
So why can’t we?
You cling to this
You claim the best
If this is what you’re offering
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain
I’ll take the rain

Radiohead – “Idioteque”

[Disclaimer: I have no idea about some of most of the words to this song. I can tell what he's saying some of the time, but I can't be certain about all of it. So what I've got here was taken from some random lyrics website where they discuss how no one ever really knows what the heck Radiohead is saying. So I don't really endorse the following lyrics as accurate. But at least it'll give you an idea.]

Who’s in a bunker?
Who’s in a bunker?
Women and children first
And the children first
And the children
I’ll laugh until my head comes off
I’ll swallow until I burst
Until I burst
Until I

Who’s in a bunker?
Who’s in a bunker?
I have seen too much
I haven’t seen enough
You haven’t seen it
I’ll laugh until my head comes off
Women and children first
And children first
And children

Here I’m allowed
Everything all of the time
Here I’m allowed
Everything all of the time

Ice age coming
Ice age coming
Let me hear both sides
Let me hear both sides
Let me hear both
Ice age coming
Ice age coming
Throw it in the fire
Throw it in the fire
Throw it on the

We’re not scaremongering
This is really happening
Happening
We’re not scaremongering
This is really happening
Happening
Mobiles working
Mobiles chirping
Take the money and run
Take the money and run
Take the money

Here I’m allowed
Everything all of the time
Here I’m allowed
Everything all of the time

Here I’m allowed
Everything all of the time

Radiohead – “Karma Police”

Karma police
Arrest this man
He talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge
He’s like a detuned radio

Karma police
Arrest this girl
Her Hitler hairdo
Is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party

This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
When you mess with us

Karma police
I’ve given all I can
It’s not enough
I’ve given all I can
But we’re still on the payroll

This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
When you mess with us

For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself

For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
Phew, for a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself

Regina Spektor – “On the Radio”

[Lyrics from this song appear in this post.]

This is how it works
It feels a little worse
Than when we drove our hearse
Right through that screaming crowd
While laughing up a storm
Until we were just bone
Until it got so warm
That none of us could sleep
And all the styrofoam
Began to melt away
We tried to find some worms
To aid in the decay
But none of them were home
Inside their catacomb
A million ancient bees
Began to sting our knees
While we were on our knees
Praying that disease
Would leave the ones we love
And never come again

On the radio
We heard November Rain
That solo’s really long
But it’s a pretty song
We listened to it twice
‘Cause the DJ was asleep

This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
Then try to love the things you took
And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some
Someone else’s heart
Pumping someone else’s blood
And walking arm in arm
You hope it don’t get harmed
But even if it does
You’ll just do it all again

And on the radio
You hear November Rain
That solo’s awful long
But it’s a good refrain
You listen to it twice
‘Cause the DJ is asleep
On the radio
On the radio
On the radio – uh oh
On the radio – uh oh
On the radio – uh oh
On the radio

Tracy Chapman – “Talking Bout a Revolution”

Don’t you know
They’re talking about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don’t you know
They’re talking about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs

Don’t you know
You betting run, run, run
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin bout a revolution
