25 November Lyrics: Vienna

We walked in the cold air.
Freezing breath on a window pane,
Lying and waiting.
The man in the dark in a picture frame,
So mystic and soulful.
A voice reaching out in a piercing cry,
It stays with you until

The feeling has gone only you and I.
It means nothing to me.
This means nothing to me.
Oh Vienna,.

The music is weaving
Haunting notes, pizzicato strings,
The rhythm is calling.
Alone in the night as the daylight brings,
A cool empty silence.
The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky,
It fades to the distance.

The image has gone only you and I.
It means nothing to me.
This means nothing to me.
Oh, Vienna.

This means nothing to me.
This means nothing to me.
Oh, Vienna.

Ultravox, Vienna

24 November Lyrics: If I Didn't Have You

[James P. Sullivan]
If I were a rich man, with a million or two,
I'd live in a penthouse,in a room with a view,
And if I were handsome, well it can happen.
Those dreams do come true,

[Both]
I wouldn't have nothin',if I didn't have you.
I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have you.
I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have,

[James]
I wouldn't have nothin'.

[Mike Wazowski]
For years I have envied, your grace and your charm.
Everyone loves you, you know.

[James]
Yes, I know, I know, I know.

[Mike]
But I must admit it,

[James]
Come on, admit it.

[Mike]
Big Guy, you always come through.

[James]
Yes I do, I do, I do.

[Mike]
I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have you.

[Both]
You and me together, that's how it should always be.
One without the other, is gonna be nothin' to me, nothin' to me.

[Mike]
Yeah, I wouldn't be nothin', if I didn't' have you to serve.
Just a punky little eyeball, and a funky optic nerve.
Word.

Hey I never told you this, but, uh, sometimes I get a little blue.
But I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have you.

[James]
Alright, yall'.

[Both]
Let's dance!
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh Oooh Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh Oooh Oooh.

[Mike]
I wouldn't have nothin',

[Both]
If I didn't have you,

[Mike]
Wouldn't know where to go, no, no,

[Both]
Or know what to do.
I don't have to say it, 'cause we both know it's true.
I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have you.
I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have you.
I wouldn't have nothin', if I didn't have,
I wouldn't have nothin' if I didn't have you.

Randy Newman (sung by John Goodman [James P. Sullivan] and Billy Crystal [Mike Wazowski] from Monsters, Inc.)

23 November Lyrics: Le Festin

Les r'ves des amoureux sont comme(e) le bon vin
Ils donn(ent) de la joie ou bien du chagrin
Affaibli par la faim je suis malheureux
Volant en chemin tout ce que je peux
Car rien n'est gratuit dans la vie

L'espoir est un plat bien trop vite consomme
A sauter les repas je suis habitu
Un voleur solitaire est triste nourrir
A un jeu si amer je n'peux r'ussir
Car rien n'est gratuit dans

La vie Jamais on ne me dira
Que la course aux toiles; 'a n'est pas pour moi
Laissez moi vous merveiller et prendre mon en vol
Nous allons en fin nous r'galer

La f't(e) va enfin commencer
Sortez les bouteilles; finis les ennuis
Je dresse la table, de ma nouvell(e) vie
Je suis heureux l'id'e de ce nouveau destin
Une vie me cacher et puis libre enfin
Le festin est sur mon chemin

Une vie me cacher et puis libre enfin
Le festin est sur mon chemin


English lyrics:

Dreams are to lovers as wine is to friends
Carried through lifetimes, (and) spilled now and then
I am driven by hunger, so saddened to be
Thieving in darkness; I know you're not pleased
But nothing worth eating is free

My hope is a banquet impatiently downed
Impossibly full, now I'll probably drown
Many thieves' lives are lonely with one mouth to feed
If giving means taking, I'll never succeed
For nothing worth stealing is

Free at last; won't be undersold
Surviving isn't living; won't eat what I'm told
Let me free, I'll astonish you; I'm planning to fly
I won't let this party just pass me by

The banquet is now underway, so
Bring out the bottles; a new tale has spun
In clearing this table, my new life's begun
I am nervous, excited; (oh) just read the marquee!
A lifetime of hiding; I'm suddenly free!
My dinner is waiting for me

A lifetime of hiding; I'm suddenly free!
My dinner is waiting for me

Camille (from Ratatouille)

22 November Lyrics: La Vie en Rose

Des yeux qui font baiser les miens,
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche,
Voila le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d'amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ca me fait quelque chose.

Il est entre dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C'est lui pour moi. Moi pour lui
Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a jure pour la vie.

Et des que je l'apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Des nuits d'amour a ne plus en finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Des enuis des chagrins, des phases
Heureux, heureux a en mourir.

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d'amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ca me fait quelque chose.

Il est entre dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C'est toi pour moi. Moi pour toi
Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a jure pour la vie.

Et des que je l'apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Edith Pilaf

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And tho I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak...angels sing from above
Everyday words seem...to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

Louis Armstrong (from WALL-E)

If You Could Thank Anyone,,,

...who would it be?

We came home from watching another wonderful Pixar movie, "Tangled". It was great! And since I'm on call all night, I put on "Cars", another great Pixar movie. In the credits, I saw Joe Ranft's name, and remembered that he died. He died in 2005, during the production of "Cars". He was in a vehicle that crashed with one survivor and two dead.

I love the Pixar movies. I have almost all of them. And Joe Ranft did story board art, production (director), voices, magic - you name it. I would have loved to have met him and thanked him for hours of entertainment. So for tonight - and maybe for every Thanksgiving - I'll watch Pixar movies to commemorate him. And to say thanks to his brother, Jerome Ranft, for the same. It must run in the family.

I have on "Toy Story" now, the first Pixar movie. I have ten of twelve Pixar films - "Toy Story", "A Bug's Life", "Toy Story 2", "Monsters, Inc.", "Finding Nemo", "The Incredibles", "Cars", "Ratatouille", "WALL-E", "Up", "Toy Story 3" and now, "Tangled". "Tangled" was delightful, by the way - Joe would have loved it. It was everything an animated movie should be - fun, funny, great for adults and wonderfully done. The voices were great, the music even better. And I'm not one for movies where the actors break into song all the time.

Thank you, Joe, for all you've done for thousands of people.

21 November Lyrics: Big Balls

I'm ever upper class high society,
God's gift to ballroom notoriety,
I always fill my ballroom

(The event is never small)
The social pages say I've got
The biggest balls of all

Oh I've got big balls
I've got big balls
And they're such big balls

Dirty big balls
And he's got big balls
And she's got big balls
But we've got the biggest balls of them all

And my balls are always bouncing
My ballroom always full
And everybody cums and cums again
If your name is on the guest list

No-one can take you higher
Everybody says I've got
GREAT BALLS OF FIRE

Oh I've got big balls
repeat

Some balls are held for charity
And some for fancy dress
But when they're held for pleasure
They're the balls that I like best.

My balls are always bouncing
To the left and to the right
It's my belief that my big balls
Should be held every night

Oh I've got big balls
repeat

And I'm just itching to tell you about them
Oh we had such wonderful fun
Seafood cocktail, crabs, crayfish...
Ball sucker

20 November Lyrics: Bitty Boppy Betty

Bitty boppy Betty,
Bitty boppy Betty,
Bitty boppy Betty woo hoo,
On weekends she's your honey,
Then comes Monday,
And that'll be sir to you.

Bitty boppy Betty,
Better known as Billy,
He's the up and coming local DA.

A fearless crime fighter,
Political insider,
Sure to be mayor one day.

But after work on Fridays,
Off comes the necktie,
And on come the diamonds and pearls.

You better get ready,
'Cause now Billy's Betty,
Everybody's favorite girl.

In the belly of the city,
That's where you'll find Betty,
Friday to Sunday night.

Is she working under cover,
Or just a fun lover?
Either way that's alright.

Bitty boppy Betty,
What a bouncing beauty,
So sophisticated and refined.

She's a boy who doesn't show it,
And though the guys all know it,
None of them seem to mind.

When Betty starts a boppin',
The joint starts a hoppin',
She can twist and dance the whole night through.

You really can't ignore her,
And if you don't adore her,
There might be something wrong with you.

On Mondays bright and early,
Betty's back to Billy,
Working hard on behalf of our town.

Upholding law and order,
Talking to reporters,
And keeping us safe and sound.

If there's a moral to this ditty,
It's not to judge Betty,
Billy or anyone.

'Cause life's a lot richer
With a healthy mixture,
Not to mention lots more fun!

Bitty boppy Betty,
Bitty boppy Betty,
Bitty boppy Betty woohoo,
On weekends she's your honey,
Then comes Monday,
And that'll be sir to you.

20 November Lyrics: Over the Valley

Over the valley
I saw a silver cloud
With a pink lining
I said it right out loud

There's no denying
You are my one and only love
And we'll see over the valley
The moon rise above

Over the valley
This house among the trees
Where we've been hiding
Making our memories

And I'm deciding
You are my one and only love
And we'll be over the valley
As the moon shines above

The autumn breezes carry all the bluebirds
Down to where the sun still shines
If we could hold this day
In our hearts some way
We would never roam
Ever far from home

Over the valley
Just above the fray
The sun is setting
And when we're old and grey

I'll still be betting
You are my one and only love
And over the valley
The moon shines above

The autumn breezes carry all the bluebirds
Down to where the sun still shines
If we could hold this day
In our hearts some way
We would never roam
Ever far from home

Over the valley
Just above the fray
The sun is setting
And when we're old and grey

I'll still be betting
You are my one and only love
And we'll live over the valley

You'll always be with me
As the moon shines above

Pink Martini, Splendour in the Grass
Dedicated to Luis, as we've watched the Moon rise above...

20 November Lyrics: Dosvadenya, Mio Bambino

The Samovara is full of tea
You stare unblinkingly at me
While your car waits in the freezing rain

I know your soul calls Moscow home
But your heart belongs to Rome
So for years, I've followed you in vain

But all, will you ever know what you are?
Dosvedanya, mio bambino
Dosvedanya, mio bambino
There is a place where only you alone go
There is a world that only you alone know

Along an endless balcony
Above the Adriatic Sea
I try to storm the Kremlin of your heart

In Florence, we were on the mend
But that Mazurka had to end
We missed the naked trees of Gorky Park

But all, will you ever know what you've lost?
Dosvedanya, mio bambino
Dosvedanya, mio bambino
There is a place where only you alone go
There is a world that only you alone know

But all, will you ever know what you have?
Dosvedanya, mio bambino
Dosvedanya, mio bambino
There is a place where only you alone go
There is a world that only you alone know

I heard you finally settled down, in a warm Italian town
So I took the train to see you there
Your wife is sweet and you're well fed
Your daughter, tucked away in bed
Still you looked at me with great despair
I hear snow is falling on Red Square

Valderi valdera
Valderi valdera
Valderi valdera
My knapsack on my back

Valderi valdera
Valderi valdera
Valderi valdera
My knapsack on my back

20 November Lyrics: The City of Night

Well the sun’s going down
With its deep amber light
Embracing the town as we fall into night

To the silvery sound as the birds fly away
Getting ready for love
Getting out of the day

It is the city of night
It is the city if night
Leave the worries of day behind
And dream a new dream tonight

All the lands are a glow
All the lids painted red
And you wish you could take
That last thing you said

Well the night is a drum
Singing songs of delight
But when dawn comes along
Love is lost in the light

But in the city of night
Oh, in the city of night
Leave the troubles of day behind
And dream a new dream tonight

Pink Martini, "Hey, Eugene!"

20 November Lyrics: Lilly

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

One day she passed him by
A twinkle in her eye
He said " she was meant for me!"

But when he turned around
He lost what he had found
Oh where can his Lilly be?

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

He searched the city streets
He tempted her with treats
But nobody stopped to taste them

Some are in his pocket
Some are in a locket
He couldn't bring himself to waste them

Ever since she's gone
Some days he can't go on
She ruined him for another

Pressed up against the glass
He prays that she will pass
Now he's living with his mother

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Stay, stay, stay, stay

20 November Lyrics: The Gardens of Sampson and Beasley

Under Orion's starry sky
I lie in the moonlit garden
Wondering where to cast my eye
For all that I see is heaven

Oh why does it have to end?
I wish we could still pretend
You're near, just around the bend
In the gardens of Sampson and Beasley

Last time we were in this place
Your face had a certain sadness
And oh how I've wondered since
What you've done with all that sadness

Oh why did it have to end?
I wish we could still pretend
Our love was around the bend
In the garden of Sampson and Beasley

Under Orion's starry sky
I lie in the moonlit garden
Wondering when I close my eyes
If I'll ever find my heaven

Oh why will it never end?
These days where I still pretend
Our love just around the bend
In the gardens of Sampson and Beasley

Pink Martini, "Hang On, Little Tomato"

20 November Lyrics: Donde Estas, Yolanda?

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda
Te busque, te busque, Yolanda
Y no estas, y no estas Yolanda

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda
Te busque, te busque, Yolanda
Y no estas, y no estas Yolanda

Tus ojos me miraron
Tus labios me besaron
Con ese fuego ardiente
Ardiente de mujer

La luz de tu mirada
El fuego de tus labios
Flecharon a mi pecho y de ti me enamore

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda
Te busque, te busque, Yolanda
Y no estas, y no estas Yolanda

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda
Te busque, te busque, Yolanda
Y no estas, y no estas Yolanda

Me dicen que paseabas
En un carro Yolanda
Muy guapa y arrogante
Y todos te silbaban.

Si un dia te encontrara
No se que puedo hacer
No se me vuelvo loco
Si ya no te vuelvo a ver

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda
Te busque, te busque, Yolanda
Y no estas, y no estas Yolanda

Donde estas, donde estas, Yolanda
Que paso, que paso, Yolanda
Te busque, te busque, Yolanda
Y no estas, y no estas Yolanda

20 November Lyrics: La Soledad

Viniste a mi
Como poesia en la cancion
Mostrandome
Un nuevo mundo de pasion

Amandome
Sin egoismo y sin razon
Mas sin saber
Que era el amor
Yo protegi mi corazon

El sol se fue
Y yo cantando tu cancion
La soledad
Se aduena de toda emocion

Perdoname
Si el miedo robo mi ilusion
Viniste a mi
No supe amar
Y solo queda esta cancion

Viniste a mi
Como poesia en la cancion
Mostrandome
Un nuevo mundo de pasion

Amandome
Sin egoismo y sin razon
Mas sin saber
Que era el amor
Yo protegi mi corazon

El sol se fue
Y yo cantando tu cancion
La soledad
Se aduena de toda emocion

Perdoname
Si el miedo robo mi ilusion
Viniste a mi
No supe amar
Y solo queda esta cancion

Pink Martini, Sympathique

12 November Lyrics: 9 Crimes

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It's the wrong time
For somebody new
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright?
If u don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright
With you?

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It's the wrong time
She's pulling me through
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Is that alright?
I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright?
If you dont shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Is that alright?
I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright?
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright with you?
Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright with you?

No...

13 November Lyrics: Rocket's Tail

November night, looking up into the sky,
You said,

"Hey, wish that was me up there--
It's the biggest rocket I could find,
And it's holding the night in its arms
If only for a moment.
I can't see the look in its eyes,
But I'm sure it must be laughing."

But it seemed to me the saddest thing I'd ever seen,
And I thought you were crazy, wishing such a thing.

I saw only a stick on fire,
Alone on its journey
Home to the quickening ground,
With no one there to catch it.

I put on my pointed hat
And my black and silver suit,
And I check my gunpowder pack
And I strap the stick on my back.

And, dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge--
Nobody seems to see me.
Then, with the fuse in my hand,
And now shooting into the night

And still as a rocket,
I land in the river.

Was it me said you were crazy?
I put on my cloudiest suit,
Size 5 lightning boots, too.

'Cause I am a rocket
On fire.
Look at me go, with my tail on fire,

With my tail on fire,
On fire.
Hey, look at me go, look at me...

13 November Lyrics: Wuthering Heights

Out on the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper, like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy

How could you leave me?
When I needed to possess you
I hated you, I loved you too
Bad dreams in the night

They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights.

(Chorus)
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy come home
I'm so cold, let me in-a-your window

Oh it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine alot, I find the lot
Falls through without you

I'm coming back love, cruel Heathcliff
My only one dream, my only master
Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right

I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights (Chorus)

Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Oh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy (Chorus)

13 November Lyrics: The Wedding List

No, I'll never give the hunt up,
And I won't muck it up.
Somehow, this was it,

I knew,
Maybe fate wants you dead too,
We've come together in the very same room,
And I'm coming for you.

Did you think I'd ever let you,
get away with it, huh?
He swooned in a warm maroon.

There's gas in your barrel,
And I'm flooded with Doom.
You've made a wake of our honeymoon,
And I'm coming for you.

All of the headlines said "Passion Crime",
"Newly Weds, Groom Shot Dead, Mystery Man"

God help the bride.
She's a widow, all in Red, with his Red, still wet-
She said (But she sure put him on the Wedding List)
I'll put him on the Wedding List
I'll get him on the the Wedding List
I'll get him on and
I will not miss.

Now as I'm coming for you-All I see is Rudi,
I die with him again and again,
And I'll feel good in my revenge,
I'll gonna fill your head with lead,
And I'm coming for you.

And when it's all over, you'll roll over,
The butt of my gun,
One in your belly and one for Rudi,
You got what you gave by the heel of my bootie,
Bang-Bang, out! Like an old cherootie,
And I'm coming for you.

All of the headlines said "Passion Crime",
"Newly Weds, Groom Shot Dead, Mystery Man"

God help the bride.
She's a widow, all in Red, with his Red, still wet-
She said (But she sure put him on the Wedding List)
I'll put him on the Wedding List
I'll get him on the the Wedding List
I'll get him on and
I will not miss.

13 November Lyrics: This Woman's Work

Pray God you can cope
I stand outside
This woman's work
This woman's world

Oooh, it's hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the father

I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying
But I just can't let it show
I should be hoping
But I couldn’t stop thinking

All the things I should've said
That I never said
All the things we should of done
That we never did

All the things I should've given
But I didn't
Oh darling make it go
Make it go away

Give me these moments back
Give them back to me
Give me that little kiss
Give me your hand

I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying
But I just can't let it show
I should be hoping
But I can’t stop thinking

All the things I should've said
That I never said
All the things we should of done
That we never did

All the things that you needed from me
All the things that you wanted from me
All the things I should've given
But I didn't

Oh darling make it go away
Just make it go away

13 November Lyrics: Watching You Without Me

You can't hear me
You can't hear me
You can't hear what I'm saying
You can't hear what I'm saying to you.

You watch the clock
Move the slow hand
I should have been home
Hours ago - but I'm not here,
but I'm not here,

You can't hear me
You can't hear me
You can't feel me

Here in the room with you now,
You can't hear what I am saying,
You don't hear what I am saying do you.

Can't let you know
What's been happening
There's a ghost in our home
Just watching you without me

I'm not here, but I'm not here, but I'm not here.
You can't hear me, you can't hear what I'm saying
You didn't hear me come in
You won't hear me leaving.

13 November Lyrics: Jig of Life

Hello old Lady
I know your face well
I know it well

She says - ooh-na-na-na-na
I'll be sitting in your mirror
Now is the place where the crossroads meet
Will you look into the future.

Never, never say goodbye
To my part of your life
No, no, no,
Oh, oh, oh

Let me live
She said c'mon let me live
She said c'mon let me live girl

This moment in time
It doesn't belong to you
It belongs to me

And to your little boy and your little girl
And the one hand clapping
Where on your palm is my little line
When you're written in mine
As an old memory

ohh-na-na-na-na-na
Never never never say goodbye
To my part of your life
No, no, no, no,
Never, never, never, never
Let me go.

She said c'mon let me live
She said c'mon let me live girl

Kate Bush, The Hounds of Love

15 November Lyrics: Rapture

Toe to toe
Dancing very close
Barely breathing
Almost comatose

Wall to wall
People hypnotised
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in Rapture

Back to back
Sacrailiac
Spineless movement
And a wild attack

Face to face
Sadly solitude
And it's finger popping
Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture

Fab Five Freddie told me everybody's high
DJ's spinnin' are savin' my mind
Flash is fast, Flash is cool
Francois sez fas, Flashe' no do

And you don't stop, sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and you drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light

And it comes right down and lands on the ground
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head

And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercuries and Subarus

And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars
Then, when there's no more cars
You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face, dance cheek to cheek

One to one, man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow, 'cause the man from Mars
Is through with cars, he's eatin' bars

Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture, be pure
Take a tour, through the sewer

Don't strain your brain, paint a train
You'll be singin' in the rain
I said don't stop, do punk rock

Well now you see what you wanna be
Just have your party on TV
'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars when the TV's on

And now he's gone back up to space
Where he won't have a hassle with the human race
And you hip-hop, and you don't stop
Just blast off, sure shot

'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
And now he only eats guitars, get up!

Blondie, Rapture

17 November Lyrics: This is the Picture

excellent birds

flying birds
excellent birds
watch them fly, there they go
falling snow
excellent snow
here it comes. watch it fall

long words
excellent words
I can hear them now

this is the picture, this is the picture
this is the picture, this is the picture

I'm sitting by the window
watching the snow fall
I'm looking out
and I'm moving, turning in time
catching up. moving in
jump up! I can land on my feet. look out!

this is the picture, this is the picture
this is the picture, this is the picture

looking out. watching out
when I see the future I close my eyes
I can see it now

I see pictures of people, rising up
pictures of people, falling down
I see pictures of people
they're standing on their heads, they're ready
they're looking out, look out!
they're watching out, watch out!
they're looking out, look out!
they're watching out, watch out!

I see pictures of people
I see pictures of people

19 November Lyrics 2: "October" and "The Ocean"

October
And the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear.
What do I care?

October
And kingdoms rise
And kingdoms fall
But you go on
And on...

U2, October

A picture in grey,
Dorian Gray
Just me by the sea.

And I felt like a star
I felt the world could go far
If they listened to what I said.
The sea...

Washes my feet
Washes my feet
Splash the sole of my shoes...

U2, Boy

19 November Lyrics: Magnificent

Magnificent
Magnificent



I was born
I was born to be with you

In this space and time

After that and ever after I haven't had a clue

Only to break rhyme
This foolishness can leave a heart black and blue



Only love, only love can leave such a mark

But only love, only love can heal such a scar


I was born
I was born to sing for you

I didn't have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb my first cry, it was a joyful noise ...

Only love, only love can leave such a mark

But only love, only love can heal such a scar


Justified till we die, you and I will magnify

The Magnificent

Magnificent


Only love, only love can leave such a mark

But only love, only love unites our hearts



Justified till we die, you and I will magnify
The Magnificent

Magnificent

Magnificent

18 November Lyrics: Wonderful Night

Yeh, yeh yeh yeh yeh
Uhm hmm hm hm

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta take it from me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta shake it for me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
Everybody can see
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
Go ahead and release
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

You know the music search engine need a tuneup
Soon as they out the gate they all a wanna hear da corner, uh-huh
Well that was cool but now but then I heard a rumor, uh-huh
Your crew was ridin' for the White Cliffs of Dover

Well, let me tell ya how we do it in California
We'll have you on the run just like a puma
If it don't move us
Ain't paid ya dues and it ain't gonna get our roosers
We gonna lose ya to the consumer solution c'mon

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta take it from me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta shake it for me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

Girl I want it you got it
Your body's like a narcotic
The thought is auto-erotic
Come on and break it on down

Can I get it on credit
I guess your brick-house I'll bet it
Take it as far as you'll let it
Come on and break it on down

That the spot will get hot
That it's ready to pop
Don't even look at the clock
All of your problems forgotten
It's time to rock till you drop
Feel the force and just flock
To the epicenter of the party's bass drummers c'mon

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta take it from me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta shake it for me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

We gonna stimulate your mind
Everybody's high
Eyes just like a child
Everything feels right

Once you've seen the light
You're gonna move all night
Feel your soul ignite
Everything feels right, right, riggggggggghht

We live the masterful life that's mythical
Feel its chords and its vibes atypical
Do what you want, it's alright
This mystical time you've got
That's a lot of this principle

If you stay in this moment so critical
Let the music change your brain stem's chemicals
Make you feel like your spirit's invincible
Feel the force centrifugal reaching up to your pinnacle now

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta take it from me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta shake it for me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

We rock like Colorado
You're at it throwin' bottles
We give a fuck about your status
Who you are tomorrow
Whether you beg or borrow
Or hit the super lotto
Whether your girl look like a minga or a supermodel

Feel the connectedness, energy,
Disprojected the weighted
The whole collective consciousness
Arise like helium oh
Groovin' out of the question
Won't disrespect him, but
Our styles fuckin' pouch like Dave Beckham, c'mon

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta take it from me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta shake it for me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

The truth I'm at 'em and rough 'em
As hard as the granite get
Never hesitant upon a mic strike, quick
Like an avalanche
Hijack ya like a Comanche
I'm a man on a mission
Rhyme vigilante
Keep all the jealous and the envious antsy
Love to do the club though with the party people dancin' uh-huh
And set the mood for all the plottin' and romancin' uh-huh

It's a wonderful night
We've got the answer c'mon

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta take it from me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

It's a wonderful night
You've gotta shake it for me
It's a wonderful night
Come on and break it on down

16 November Lyrics: Someone Like You

This can't be real
My heart is burning
How does it feel
Well, let's say I'm learning
It had to come
The ship has landed
It's time to run
The crew are stranded

We're having the time of our lives
We're lost in a cruel paradise

Someone like you can make me feel like I used to do
Return my heart, yeah, make it feel like it does at the start
Someone like you, Someone like you, yeah

You're everything to me
The sweetest symphony
All that I try to be
You are my harmony
I guess what I mean to say
Is you keep the walls at bay
The children on holiday
Here comes the crowd

We're having the time of our lives
We're lost in a cruel paradise

Someone like you can make me feel like I used to do
Return my heart, yeah, make it feel like it does at the start
Someone like you, yeah, Someone like you, yeah

16 November Lyrics: Crystal

We're like crystal, we break easy
I'm a poor man, if you leave me
I'm applauded, then forgotten
It was summer, now it's autumn

I don't know what to say, you don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage (just tell me what I've got to do), with a girl I betrayed
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money, you're not alone anymore,
(whenever you're here with me),
You shock me to the core, you shock me to the core

We're like crystal, it's not easy
With your love, you could feed me
Every man, and every woman
Needs someone, So keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming

I don't know what to say, you don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage (just tell me what I've got to do), with a girl I betrayed
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money, you're not alone anymore,
(whenever you're here with me),
You shock me to the core, you shock me to the core

Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming

14 November Lyrics: Sweet Violets

There was a young farmer who lived on rock
He liked to count sheep while he diddled his...
Marbles and toys as in days of old yore
And for a companion he had a young...
Maiden whose passion was playing with dolls
She told him she wanted to nuzzle his...

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets

The farmer was pleas-ed with all of his luck
She told him she'd show him a new way to...
Bring up the children and teach them to knit
While the boys in the barnyard were shoveling...
Hay from the stables and filling the rick
He told her he'd let her grab hold of his...
Long middle finger that had a slight rash
To sooth it he jammed into right into her...

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets


The farmer then left her and went off to hunt
He said, "While I'm gone, take good care of your..."
Little pet rabbits which plays in the grass
For when I get home, I will grab me some..."

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets


The maiden was shocked at his strength and his force
She could tell that he was hung like a...
Hammock which sailors do sleep in a lot
He said, "From now on I will call you my...
Twinkle-toed lassie." She said, "My name's Mulva.
Now do you have ointment for my raging..."

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets

14 November Lyrics: The Chandler's Shoppe

A man walked into a chandler's shoppe, some candles for to buy
He looked around the chandler's shoppe, but no one did he spy
Well, he was disappointed so some angry words he said
When he heard the sound of a [pony ride], right above his head
When he heard the sound of a [pony ride], right above his head

Well, this young man was a bold young man, so up the stairs he sped
And very surprised was he to find the chandler's wife in bed
And with her was a fine young man of most incredible size
And they were having a [pony ride] right before his eyes
And they were having a [pony ride] right before his eyes

When the fun was over and done and the lady raised her head,
She was quite surprised to find him standing by the bed
"If you would keep my secret sir, if you would be so kind,
You may drop in for a [pony ride] whenever you feel inclined."
"You may drop in for a [pony ride] whenever you feel inclined."

So, many a day and many a night when the chandler wasn't home
Down to the chandler shop, for candles he would roam.
But nary a one she sold to him, but gave to him instead,
Just a little bit more of the [pony ride] to light his way to bed
Just a little bit more of the [pony ride] to light his way to bed.

So, all you married men take heed, whenever you go to town,
If you must leave your woman alone, be sure to tie her down.
Or, if you would be kind to her, just lay her right down on the floor,
And give her so much of that [pony ride] she won't want any more.
And give her so much of that [pony ride] she'll be saddle sore.

11 November Lyrics: Xanadu

'To seek the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
To break my fast on honeydew
And drink the milk of Paradise...'

I had heard the whispered tales of immortality
The deepest mystery
From an ancient book I took a clue
I scaled the frozen mountain tops of eastern lands unknown
Time and Man alone
Searching for the lost Xanadu

Xanadu...

To stand within the Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste anew the fruits of life
The last immortal man
To find the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
Oh, I will dine on honeydew
And drink the milk of Paradise

A thousand years have come and gone but time has passed me by
Stars stopped in the sky
Frozen in an everlasting view
Waiting for the world to end, weary of the night
Praying for the light
Prison of the lost
Xanadu

Xanadu...

Held within the Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste my bitter triumph
As a mad immortal man
Nevermore shall I return
Escape these caves of ice
For I have dined on honeydew
And drunk the milk of Paradise

11 November Lyics: Circumstances

A boy alone, so far from home
Endless rooftops from my window
I felt the gloom of empty rooms
On rainy afternoons
Sometimes in confusion
I felt so lost and disillusioned
Innocence gave me confidence
To go up against reality

[Chorus:]
All the same we take our chances
Laughed at by time
Tricked by circumstances
Plus ca change
Plus c'est la meme chose
"The more that things change
The more they stay the same"

Now I've gained some understanding
Of the only world that we see
Things that I once dreamed of
Have become reality
These walls that still surround me
Still contain the same old me
Just one more who's searching for
A world that ought to be

All the same we take our chances
Laughed at by time
Tricked by circumstances
Plus ca change
Plus c'est la meme chose
"The more that things change
The more they stay the same"

11 November Lyrics: Subdivisions

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

(Subdivisions)
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
(Subdivisions)
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights...

(Subdivisions)
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
(Subdivisions)
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth

Rush, Signals
The song that got me through high school

10 November Lyrics: Coconut

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for a lime.

She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up,

And said, "Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

"Now let me get this straight ",

Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up

Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both together,
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better,
Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both up,
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning
Wouh wouh wouh wouh wouh

If you call me in the morning, then I'll tell you what to do...



9 November Lyrics: Dream On

every time that I look in the mirror
all these lines on my face getting clearer
the past is gone
it went by like dusk to dawn
isn't that the way
everybody's got their dues in life to pay

yeah, I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
you got to lose to know how to win

half my life's in books' written pages
live and learn from fools and from sages
you know it's true
all the things come back to you

sing with me, sing for the years
sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
sing with me, if it's just for today
maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

dream on, dream on, dream on,
dream yourself a dream come true
dream on, dream on, dream on,
and dream until your dream comes true
dream on

8 November Lyrics: Paradise by the Dashboard Light

[Meatloaf:]
I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night

And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon, hold on tight
C'mon, hold on tight

Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

[Carla:]
Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

[Both:]
Ain't no doubt about it
Baby got to go out and shout it
Ain't no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed

[Meatloaf:]
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

Baby don'tcha hear my heart
You got it drowing out the radio
I've been waiting so long
For you to come along and have some fun
And I gotta let you know
No you're never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes, I got a big surprise
It'll feel all right
Well I wanna make you motor run

And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C'mon, Hold on tight
C'mon, Hold on tight

[Both:]
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Paradise by the dashboard light

You got to do what you can
And let Mother Nature do the rest
Ain't no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely

We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night

[Radio Broadcast:]
OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth
There's the wind-up, and there it is
A line shot up the middle, look at him go
This boy can really fly!
He's rounding first and really turning it on now
He's not letting up at all, he's gonna try for second
The ball is bobbled out in the center
And here's the throw and what a throw!
He's gonna slide in head first
Here he comes, he's out
No, wait, safe, safe at second base
This kid really makes things happen out there
Batter steps up to the plate
Here's the pitch, he's going
And what a jump he's got
He's trying for third
Here's the throw
It's in the dirt, safe a third
Holy cow, stolen base
He's taking a pretty big lead out there
Almost daring them to pick him off
The pitcher glances over, winds-up and it's bunted
Bunted down the third base line
The suicide squeeze is on
Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close
Here's the throw, here's the play at the plate
Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it---

[Carla:]
Stop right there
I gotta know right now
Before we go any further

Do you love me
Will you love me forever
Do you need me
Will you make me so happy
For the rest of my life
Will you take me away
And will you make me your wife
Do you love me
Will you love me forever
Do you need me
Will you make me so happy
For the rest of my life
Will you take me away
And will you make me your wife

I gotta know right now
Before we go any further
Do you love me
Will you love me forever

[Meatloaf:]
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you an answer in the morning

Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you an answer in the morning

Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you an answer in the morning

[Carla:]
I gotta know right now
Do you love me
Will you love me forever
Do you need me
Will you make me so happy
For the rest of my life
Will you take me away
And will you make me your wife
I gotta know right now
Before we go any further
Do you love me
And will you love me forever

[Meatloaf:]
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I'll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it

[Carla:]
Will you love me forever

[Meatloaf:]
Let me sleep on it

[Carla:]
Will you love me forever

[Meatloaf:]
I couldn't take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god
And on my mother's grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore I would love you to the end of time

So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I can really survive
I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I'm praying for the end of time
So I can end my time with you

[Meatloaf:]
It was long ago and it was far away,
And it was so much better than it is today.

[Carla:]
It never felt so good, It never felt so right
And we were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife.

Meatloaf & Carla DeVito, Meatloaf

7 November Lyrics: Bohemian Rhapsody

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.
Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go, Little high, little low,
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Mama just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.
Mama, ooh, Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
Mama, ooh, I don't want to die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango.
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright'ning me.
(Galileo.) Galileo. (Galileo.) Galileo, Galileo figaro
Magnifico. I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go.
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let me go.) Will not let you go.
(Let me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.) Ah.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
(Oh mama mia, mama mia.) Mama mia, let me go.
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye.
So you think you can love me and leave me to die.
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the wind blows...

Dedicated to Talon, my dearest friend - your "woobies" miss you.

6 November Lyrics: Prospekt's March/Poppyfields

Smoke is rising from the houses
People burying their dead
I ask somebody what the time is
But time doesn't matter to them yet

People talking without speaking
Trying to take what they can get
I ask you if you remember
Prospekt, how could I forget?

Drums, here it comes
Don't you wish that life can be as simple
As fish swimming round in a barrel?
When you've got the gun

Oh when I run, here it comes
We're just two little figures in a soup bowl
Trying to get to any kind of control
But I wasn't one

Now here I lie on my own in a separate sky
Here I lie on my own in a separate sky
I don't wanna die on my own here tonight
But here I lie on my own in a separate sky

Coldplay, Prospekt's March

5 November Lyrics: Lullaby

Send a wish upon a star
Do the work and you'll go far
Send a wish upon a star
Make a map and there you are

Send a hope upon a wave
A dying wish before the grave
Send a hope upon a wave
For all this souls you failed to save

And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well

Send a question in the wind
It's hard to know where to begin
So send the question in the wind
And give an answer to a friend

Place your past into a book
Put in everything you ever took
Place your past into a book
Burn the pages let them cook

And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well
And you stood tall
Now you will fall
Don't break the spell
Of a life spent trying to do well

[Repeat chorus]

Send a wish upon a star
Send a wish upon a star

Sia, Lullaby (last song in Episode 13 of The Big C)

What Came First: The Murder or the Story?

I love watching CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It's a great show, lots of interesting story lines, and it has gotten to have a lighter side. However, the latest show, which aired on 11/04, was really quite disturbing. Someone was cheerfully chopping up vegetables, a credit card and put an ear - a human ear - into the New England clam chowder. Umm... eeeiiiuuwwww? Seriously? Really? And - as if all of this wasn't gross enough - the cheerful chopper then feeds it to someone who is bound, missing his ear, and has his mouth clamped open to ingest his ear, credit card and... New England clam chowder.

Where do they find this gem? In a huge container, you know, a truck container that contained a ton of shredded person along with garbage. Yum...

So my question is, what came first? Did someone go traipsing through the gazillions of case files that police deal with to find this delightful little tale? Or did someone on the television writing crew come up with this? I think I'd feel better knowing that this came out of criminal files. Because otherwise, this means someone is thinking this up. Tell me how this isn't the making of a serial killer?

Again, eeeiiiuuwwww.

I suppose we all have active imaginations - I do - but if this is what my imagination ran to, I'd never get any sleep. It's just a weensy bit too disturbing. Seriously disgusting. What was funny was that I was behind all of this season's episodes, so I caught up on them all tonight - all six or so of them. The one with the werewolves versus the vampires was amusing; so was the dinosaur one (very cool job, though) and the hoarding one, which touched on a fascinating topic (hoarding, duh) was interesting. And then there was the one with the cop shot, which was rather disturbing and unhappy. And then I got to this one. Which brings us back to "eeeiiiuuwwww".

Yikes.

In the bad shooting episode, there was a brief scene where Sara Sidle is being shown a new program that has a full database of gang related crimes, ballistics, names, etc. In that scene, Sara tells the guy working with the software that the COD (cause of death) was from multiple GSWs. On the screen, it reads "multiple G.S.W.'s. WHY? Why does no one see this? The abuse of the apostrophe is unbelievable. Even people who normally write really well do this! AAAAAAA! Who missed this?!

I give up on the human race where the premise of good writing. Most people just can't handle it.

4 November Lyrics: Still

I am the harm which you inflict.
I am your brilliance and frustration.
I'm the nuclear bombs if they're to hit.
I am your immaturity and your indignance.
I am your misfits and your praised.
I am your doubt and your conviction.
I am your charity and your rape.
I am your grasping and expectation.

I see you averting your glances.
I see you cheering on the war.
I see you ignoring your children,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

I am your joy and your regret.
I am your fury and your elation.
I am your yearning and your sweat.
I am your faithless and your religion.

I see you altering history.
I see you abusing the land.
I see you, your selective amnesia,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

Haaaaaaaaahh
I see you averting your glances.
I see you cheering on the war.
I see you ignoring your children,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.
I see you altering history.
I see you abusing the land.
I see you, your selective amnesia,
I love you still.
And I love you still.

I am your tragedy and your fortune.
I am your crisis and delight.
I am your profits and your prophets.
I am your art, I am your vice.
I am your death and your decisions.
I am your passion and your plight.
I am your sickness and convalescence.
I am your weapons and your light.

I see you holding your grudges.
I see you gunning them down.
I see you silencing your sisters,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.
I see you lie to your country.
I see you forcing them out.
I see you blaming each other,
And I love you still.
And I love you still.

Haaaaaaaahh
I see you holding your grudges.
I see you gunning them down.
I see you silencing your sisters,
I love you still.
I love you still.
I see you lie to your country.
I see you forcing them out.
I see you blaming each other.
I love you still.
I love you still.
I see you.

3 November Lyrics: Wrap Your Arms Around Me

I concede that you were right about this place
I can make a perfect likeness of your body if I trace
I can hold you until you turn out the light
and I can't see

Do you believe that we are all innately good
Do you think that you would love me until tomorrow if you could
Would you please turn down the radio
so we can speak

I put my hands around your neck and you wrap your arms around me
Put my hands around your neck and you wrap your arms around me
I put my hands around your neck and you wrap your arms around me

I regret every time I raised my voice
And it wouldn't be that bright of me to say I had no choice.
I can kiss your eyes your hair your neck
until we forget

I concede that you were right about this place
I can make a perfect likeness of your body if I trace
I can hold you until we turn out the light
and I can't see
I can't see

2 November Lyrics: Electrical Storm

The sea it swells like a sore head and the night it is aching
Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
And the day it is breaking

On rainy days we'd go swimming out
On rainy days swimming in the sound
On rainy days we'd go swimming out

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
If the sky can crack there must be someway back
For love and only love

Electrical Storm
Electrical Storm
Baby don't cry

Car alarm won't let you back to sleep
You're kept awake dreaming someone else's dream
Coffee is cold but it'll get you through
Compromise that's nothing new to you.
Let's see colours that have never been seen
Let's go places no one else has been

You're in my mind all of the time
I know that's not enough
Well if the sky can crack there must be someway back
To love and only love

Electrical storm
Baby don't cry

It's hot as hell, honey in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
We need the rain to wash away our bad luck

Well if the sky can crack there must be some way back
To love and only love

Electrical storm
Baby don't cry

1 November Lyrics: Keys To the Kingdom

I shoot it low, kill the flow
Ruin myself out on the north shore
I make it one, watch the sun
Sink behind the trees with the keys to the kingdom

I shoot it high, let it fly
Bury myself under a blue sky
I see a scheme, make it clean
Drown in blue rivers under a muffled scream

Call your number wishing I could make amends
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

I hit it down, kill the sound
Ruin myself out on the northbound
I make it one, kill the sun
Bury my disease with the keys to the kingdom

Call your number wishing I could make amends
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

I shoot it low
- Shoot. it. low
Kill the flow
- Kill. the. flow
Ruin myself out on the north shore

Call your number wishing I could make amends
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again

Call your number wishing I could make amends
And I'm caught in a space between my head and my face again
