I realize one of these topics comes up every few months, but whatever. I'm bored, my MSN isn't working, and it snowed outside and I hate snow so fuck that.

Anyways, here are mine.

Got a little twist of cain from the god below.

"Lookin at ya like im proper/

I wouldnt give a chick 10 cent to put cheese on a whoppa/

They wanna know why, im so fly/

A girl asked me for a ring, and i put one around her whole eye" Big L - No Endz, No Skinz

"This is a song about the seedy underbelly of the Carnival

The part that only the kids know about

This is a song about sixteen year old girls giving Carnies head

For free-rides and hits of pot.

I want to go to the Carnival."

-Bikini Kill; "Carnival"

"There is a few straight guys I know,

They want to know who plays the woman role.

I shook my head and say it's not like that

Some guys have the imagination of a door mat.

Our roles are not cast in stone,

We trade off getting boned

Because were Versatile

There is a few straight guys I've known.

There is a few straight guys I've blown

That like woman and make sure you don't forget it

they have a burning desire to get it

They want to know how taking it feels

Like Pete Townsend when he revealed

Because were Versatile."

-Pansy Division; "Versatile"

Careful, be careful

Careful, be careful

This is where the world drops off

Where the world drops off

Careful, be careful

You breathe in and you breathe out

For it ain't so weird

How it makes you a weapon

And you give in

And you give out

For it ain't so weird

How it makes you a weapon

Never turn your back on it

Never turn your back on it again

- "Weapon" by Matt Good

If you could read my mind love

What a tale my thoughts could tell

Just like an old time movie

'Bout a ghost from a wishing well

In a castle dark or a fortress strong

With chains upon my feet

You know that ghost is me

And I will never be set free

As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see

If I could read your mind love

What a tale your thoughts could tell

Just like a paperback novel

The kind the drugstores sell

When you reach the part where the heartache come

The hero would be me

But heroes often fail

And you won't read that book again

Because the ending's just too hard to take

I'd walk away like a movie star

Who gets burned in a three way script

Enter number two

A movie queen to play the scene

Of bringing all the good things out in me

But for now love, let's be real

I never thought I could act this way

And I've got to say that I just don't get it

I don't know where we went wrong

But the feeling's gone

And I just can't get it back

If you could read my mind love

What a tale my thoughts could tell

Just like an old time movie

'Bout a ghost from a wishing well

In a castle dark or a fortress strong

With chains upon my feet

But stories always end

And if you read between the lines

You'll know that I'm just trying to understand

The feelings that you lack

I never thought I could feel this way

And I've got to say that I just to get it

I don't know where we went wrong

But the feeling's gone

And I just can't get it back

"If You Could Read My Mind" by Gordon Lightfoot

There's two for now, more possibly later.

Xmas Day by Sevendust

One step in the dark

Touch her hand just to see

If she's all alone again

Still she hasn't seen sun

But I promise you now when she wakes

There will be none

Don't know how she gets by

Sleeps with a phone on her chest

And a bottle that's totally dry

Forgets the day I was born

But if she saw me right now

She would hold me until we both die

The Smiths - Hand In Glove

And if the people stare, then the people stare.

Oh, I really don't know and I really don't care.

The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?

I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

and summoner of nothing in particular.

So shut your mouth, how can you say I go about things the wrong way?

I'm human and I need to be loved just like everyone else.

Nirvana - Heart-Shaped Box

Hey, wait, I got a new complaint

Forever in debt to your priceless advice.

Crowded House - Fall At Your Feet

The finger of blame has turned upon itself

and I'm more then willing to offer myself

if you want my presence or need my help.

Who knows what that might mean?

Jeff Buckley - Last Goodbye

Kiss me, please kiss me

But kiss me out of desire, baby, not consolation.

Faith No More - Midlife Crisis

You're perfect, yes it's true

But without me, you are only you.

Thats all I got at the moment, but there are many others I love.

Jesus, where was my head before?

Say hello

Remain

Close to me

No good-bye suicide mystery

The rat

In your brain

Turns a wheel

Connected to your guts and

All your faults are in me

And all your faults in me

What would you say

If we lived on tv

Besides all the things they told you to

And all the things they told you to

We’re stuck

Inside our own machine

Apparitions

Say hello

Well is it strange

Where you are

Where you used to be kind of free

Are they laughing at you

Laughing at you

The rat

In your brain

Rules the world

From the comfort of your living room

Tell me are we leaving soon

The comfort of your living room

Tell me are we leaving soon

We’re stuck

Inside our own machine

Apparitions

We’re stuck

Inside our own machine

Apparitions

There are times that I should try,

To be so much more alive

But if time was right then I would be with you again

Or do you worry that I try to avoid the point

And then deny

The time I spent deciding it was you again

It's when I live in a hiding place

It's the only way I feel safe

When I'm safe in a hiding place

(That's not hidden now)

I'm safe in a hiding place

It's the only way I feel safe

When I'm safe in a hiding place

And you're full of facts

But not things that could add up to words

Think about meaning more as an after word

As in afterward

I return but don't remain,

I'm impatient for a reason

To complain about winter,

Making me see through again

Or is it your damaged reply,

That makes me realize that

The more I try

The less that plans will help me comprehend again

So I live in a hiding place

It's the only way I feel safe

When I'm safe in a hiding place

(That's not hidden now)

I'm safe in a hiding place

It's the only way I feel safe

When I live in a hiding place

And you're full of facts

But not things that could add up to words

You think about meaning more as an after word

And you're full of facts

But not things that could add up to words

You think about meaning more as an after word

As in afterward

Casey's Last Ride - Kris Kristofferson

Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down

The stairway to the subway in the shadows down below;

Following their footsteps through the neon-darkened corridors

Of silent desperation, never speakin’ to a soul.

The poison air he’s breathin’ has the dirty smell of dying

’cause it’s never seen the sunshine and it’s never felt the rain.

But casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes

Of the clickin’ of the turnstiles and the rattle of his chains.

Oh! she said, casey it’s been so long since I’ve seen you!

Here she said, just a kiss to make a body smile!

See she said, I’ve put on new stockings just to please you!

Lord! she said, casey can you only stay a while?

Casey leaves the under-ground and stops inside the golden crown

For something wet to wipe away the chill that’s on his bone.

Seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men

Who reach for any thing they can to keep from goin’ home.

Standin’ in the corner casey drinks his pint of bitter

Never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by

Then he stumbles as he’s leaving and he wonders if the reason

Is the beer that’s in his belly, or the tear that’s in his eye.

Oh! she said, I suppose you seldom think about me,

Now she said, now that you’ve a fam’ly of your own;

Still she said, it’s so blessed good to feel your body!

Lord! she said casey it’s a shame to be alone!

That song is just lyrically brilliant the whole way through.

Taxi - Harry Chapin

It was raining hard in 'Frisco,

I needed one more fare to make my night.

A lady up ahead waved to flag me down,

She got in at the light.

Oh, where you going to, my lady blue,

It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain.

She just looked out the window, and said

"Sixteen Parkside Lane".

Something about her was familiar

I could swear I'd seen her face before,

But she said, "I'm sure you're mistaken"

And she didn't say anything more.

It took a while, but she looked in the mirror,

And she glanced at the license for my name.

A smile seemed to come to her slowly,

It was a sad smile, just the same.

And she said, "How are you Harry?"

I said, "How are you Sue?

Through the too many miles

and the too little smiles

I still remember you."

It was somewhere in a fairy tale,

I used to take her home in my car.

We learned about love in the back of the Dodge,

The lesson hadn't gone too far.

You see, she was gonna be an actress,

And I was gonna learn to fly.

She took off to find the footlights,

And I took off to find the sky.

Oh, I've got something inside me,

To drive a princess blind.

There's a wild man, wizard,

He's hiding in me, illuminating my mind.

Oh, I've got something inside me,

Not what my life's about,

Cause I've been letting my outside tide me,

Over 'till my time, runs out.

Baby's so high that she's skying,

Yes she's flying, afraid to fall.

I'll tell you why baby's crying,

Cause she's dying, aren't we all.

There was not much more for us to talk about,

Whatever we had once was gone.

So I turned my cab into the driveway,

Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns.

And she said we must get together,

But I knew it'd never be arranged.

And she handed me twenty dollars,

For a two fifty fare, she said

"Harry, keep the change."

Well another man might have been angry,

And another man might have been hurt,

But another man never would have let her go...

I stashed the bill in my shirt.

And she walked away in silence,

It's strange, how you never know,

But we'd both gotten what we'd asked for,

Such a long, long time ago.

You see, she was gonna be an actress

And I was gonna learn to fly.

She took off to find the footlights,

And I took off for the sky.

And here, she's acting happy,

Inside her handsome home.

And me, I'm flying in my taxi,

Taking tips, and getting stoned,

I go flying so high, when I'm stoned.

Again so great can't just take a certain line.

Genius - Warren Zevon

Albert Einstein was a ladies' man

While he was working on his universal plan

He was making out like Charlie Sheen

He was a genius

Play It All Night Long - Warren Zevon

Grandpa pissed his pants again,

He don't give a damn.

The opening line of the song, the best opening line I've ever heard!

W*O*L*D - Harry Chapin

Sometimes I get this crazy dream

That I just drive off in my car

But you can travel on ten thousand miles and still say where you are

I've been thinking that I should quit disk jockeying

And start that record store

Maybe I could settle down if you'ld take me back once more

OK Honey, I see

I guess he's better than me

Sure, Old Girl, I understand

You don't have to worry, I'm such a happy man

Wichita Lineman (written by Jim Webb) - Glen Campbell

I am a lineman for the county

And I drive the main road

Searching in the sun

For another overload

I hear you singing in the wires

I can hear you through the whine

And the Wichita lineman

Is still on the line

I know I need a small vacation

But it don’t look like rain

And if it snows

That stretch down south

Won’t ever stand the strain

And I need you more than want you

And I want you for all time

And the Wichita lineman

Is still on the line

And I need you more than want you

And I want you for all time

And the Wichita lineman

Is still on the line

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen

The screen door slams

Mary's dress sways

Like a vision she dances across the porch

As the radio plays

Roy Orbison singing for the lonely

Hey that's me and I want you only

Don't turn me home again

I just can't face myself alone again

Don't run back inside

darling you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking

That maybe we ain't that young anymore

Show a little faith, there's magic in the night

You ain't a beauty, but hey you're alright

Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide `neath your covers

And study your pain

Make crosses from your lovers

Throw roses in the rain

That song made me want to write songs for those very lyrics. I love 'em.

Tower of Song - Leonard Cohen

Well my friends are gone and my hair is grey

I ache in the places where I used to play

And I'm crazy for love but I'm not coming on

I'm just paying my rent every day

Oh in the Tower of Song

I said to Hank Williams: how lonely does it get?

Hank Williams hasn't answered yet

But I hear him coughing all night long

A hundred floors above me

In the Tower of Song

....

I see you standing on the other side

I don't know how the river got so wide

I loved you baby, way back when

And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed

But I feel so close to everything that we lost

We'll never have to lose it again

Tom Waits- Martha

And those were the days of roses,

poetry and prose and Martha

all I had was you and all you had was me.

There was no tomorrows,

we'd packed away our sorrows

And we saved them for a rainy day.

I remember quiet evenings, trembling close to you.

True Believers - Bouncing Souls

I've met some people along the way, some of them split some of them stay

Some of them walk some walk on by, I've got a few friends I'll love till I die

From all of these people I try to learn, some of them shine some of them burn

Some of them rise some of them fall, for good or bad I've known them all

Barfly - Strung Out

I wanna be found smilin' when I'm dyin' here

I wanna burn my eyes out on the sun

Sunshine - 20 Minute Crash

She brightens up my world

She Helps clear my mind

Makes living a little bit easier

Forever sunshine

Kazzer-Test Me

You wanna come test me? Test me. Catch me if you can.

I'm coming quicker than The Flash in the 100 meter dash.

With a running head-start on a slightly downhill track,

with the wind at his back, damn right that's fast!

You're a contestant, I'm the gameshow host,

Survey Says: You're Toast!

I'm a stealth bomber you're a paper airplane.

I'm more like the golf pro and you're my caddy, who's your daddy?

Call me sensei, call me cifu, call me master, you need help.

It's a good thing that your uniform came with a white belt.

Inadequite, out of date, need I say more?

You're older than a commedore 64!

"Don't touch me, 'cause I'm electric

And if you touch me, you get shocked." ~ Beastie Boys, Professor Booty

"Goodbye, I must be leaving now

Because maybe I'm full of likes and dislikes

The noise on the street is unbearable

But maybe I have got nowhere to go.

So I wanna be a bat, and I want to touch the sun,

There I will try to force a smile." ~ The Pillows, Subhuman

"Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.

It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out.

It doesn't matter much to me." ~ The Beatles, Strawberry Fields Forever

It's so safe to play along

Little soldiers in a row

Falling in and out of love

With something sweet to throw away.

But I want something good to die for

To make it beautiful to live.

Queens of the Stoneage - Go With the Flow
