Taking Back Sunday
"Twenty-Twenty Surgery"

I'll take with me every single luxury when I leave you could
Count on me for that and nothing more
(Count on me for that and nothing more)
The view from this side's not what
The view from this side's not what
I thought it'd be, promise something differently
Close our eyes and let go of the wheel

It's not the quantity that bothers me
(no it's not the quantity that bothers me)
No it's not the quality that bothers me..

It's in me, twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap dollar signs are up, for picture perfect point of view
Twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap, dollar signs are up, for picture perfect point of view

Well all young children listen, 'cause they've got so much to learn
(Turn it in, turn it in)
We'll get you home in time, to make the wretched be for free for being me ?

It's not the quantity that bothers me
(no it's not the quantity that bothers me)
No it's not the quality that bothers me..

It's in me, twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap dollar signs are up, for picture perfect point of view
Twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap, dollar signs are up, for picture perfect point of view

I do, I don't need you like you think
I do, I don't, I don't need you like you think
I do, I don't, I don't need you like you think
I do, you don't you just don't... leave me alone.

It's in me, twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap dollar signs are up, for picture perfect point of view
Twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap, dollar signs are up, for picture perfect point of view

You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.
You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.
You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.
You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.

"Error Operator"
Taking Back Sunday

Well there's been an accident (calm down)
There's been an accident, breath
In and out calm down (in and out calm down)
Breath in and out calm down (in and out calm...)

We can't go back
Can't go back
Can't go back, we can't...
We can't go back
Can't go back
Can't go back, we can't...

(Breath in and out calm down)

Well would you do it again, again
And count backwards from ten
(Look I don't make those mistakes no more)
You took the path that's where I could see straight through you
Just concentrate, good try
But would you do it again, again

We can't go back
Can't go back
Can't go back, we can't...
We can't go back
Can't go back
Can't go back, we can't...

We can't go back
Can't go back
Can't go back, we can't...
We can't go back
Can't go back

Murder, Oh murder, oh where have you been? [x5]

Sometimes I swear I can see right through you
Concentrate, Concentrate, Control, Concentrate.
This doesn't feel like anything.

We can't go back, can't go back, can't go back, we can't...
We can't go back, can't go back, can't go back, we can't...
We can't go back, can't go back, can't go back, we can't...
(Feels like anything anything, anything anything)

Have you had "Gone" by Switchfoot?

She told him she'd rather fix her makeup
Than try and fix what's going on
But the problem keeps on calling
Even with the cell phone gone.

She told him that she believes in living
Bigger than she's living now
But her world keeps spinning backwards
And upside down.

Don't say so long, you're not that far gone.
Don't spin today away, 'cause today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
Just try and prove me wrong and pretend like you're immortal.

She said, he said, live like no tomorrow
Everyday we borrow brings us
One step closer to the edge. Infinity.
Where's your treasure, where's your hope,
If you get the world and lose your soul?
She pretends like she pretends like
she's immortal.

Don't say so long, and throw yourself wrong
This could be your big chance to make-up
Today will soon be

Gone, like yesterday is gone
Like history is gone
The world keeps spinning on
You're going, going,
Gone, like summer break is gone,
Like Saturday is gone
Just try and prove me wrong and pretend like you're immortal.

We are not infinite
We are not permanent
Nothing is immediate
And we pretend like we're immortal.
We are so confident in our accomplishments
Look at our decadence.

Gone, like Frank Sinatra, like Elvis and his mom,
Like Al Pacino's cash, nothing lasts in this life
Gone, my High School dreams are gone,
My childhood sweets are gone
Life is a day that doesn't last for long.

Life is more than money, time was never money
Time was never cash, life is still more than girls.
Life is more than hundred dollar bills and roto-tom fills, Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills.
All the riches of the kings end up in will
We've got information in the information age
But do we know what life is outside of our
convenient Lexus cages?

She said he said live like no tomorrow
Every moment that we borrow brings us closer
To a God who's never been short of cash
Hey Bono, I'm glad you asked.
Life is still worth living, life is more than we are

Then there's "Knight Moves" by Suzanne Vega.

Watch while the queen
In one false move
Turns herself into a pawn

Sleepy and shaken
And watching while the blury night
Turns into a very clear dawn

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

One false move
And a secret prophecy
Well, if you hold it against her,
First hold it up and see
That it's one side stone
One side fire
Standing alone among all men's desire
They want to know

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

And if you wonder
What I am doing
As I am heading
For the sink
I am spitting out all the bitterness
Along with half of my last drink
I am thinking
Of your woman
Who is crying in the hall
It's like drinking gasoline
To quench a thirst
Until there's nothing there left at all

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

" Walk on the blind side"?
Was the answer to the joke
It's said there isn't a political bone
In her body

She would rather be a riddle
But she keeps challenging the future
With a profound lack of history

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

Do you love any, do you love none,
Do you love many, can you love one,
Do you love me?

And watch while the queen
In one false move
Turns herself into a pawn

Sleepy and shaken
And watching while the blury night
Turns into a very clear dawn

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?

(I'm kind of obsessed with this song right now)
Melissa O'Neil - Speechless

I find I get lost for words around you
Overwhelmed by your presence
I feel the same, I hear the words you won't say
Echo through your eyes
Nothing more for me to say
Silence understands some things
What is meant to be, will be

Sometimes it's the words we don't say that get in the way
Time will break down the walls that we've built between us
I won't ever be speechless

This feeling takes me just like a painted sky
how do I describe all these colours inside
Nothing left for me to say anyway

Sometimes it's the words we don't say that get in the way
Time will break down the walls that we've built
Sometimes it's the words we don't say that get in the way
Time will break down the walls that we've built between us.

I wanna know you inside out
I want to know you without a doubt
And though we're shy
Would it be easier just to say goodbye
I want to learn to read your mind
I want to say the words but my tongue gets tied
And don't feel shy
Would it be easier just to say goodbye

I find I get lost for words around you
Overwhelmed by your presence

Sometimes it's the words we don't say that get in the way
Time will break down the walls that we've built
Sometimes it's the words we don't say that get in the way
Time will break down the walls that we've built between us
I won't ever be
Won't ever be
I won't ever be
Speechless

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin's eyes
I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose

Chorus
People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain't doing me any good
I'm in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain't no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he's got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through

(chorus)

I've been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I've been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can't win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

(chorus)

I hurt easy, I just don't show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I'm in love with a woman who don't even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I'm not that eager to make a mistake

(chorus)

"When the World Ends"
Dave Matthews Band



When the world ends
Collect your things
You’re coming with me
When the world ends
You tuckle up yourself with me
Watch it as the stars disappear to nothing
The day the world is over
We’ll be lying in bed

I’m gonna rock you like a baby when the cities fall
We will rise as the building’s crumble
Float there and watch it all
Amidst the burning, we’ll be churning
You know, love will be our wings
The passion rises up from the ashes
When the world ends

When the world ends
You’re gonna come with me
We’re going to be crazy
Like a river bends
We’re going to float
Through the criss cross of the mountains
Watch them fade to nothing
When the world ends
You know that’s what’s happening now
I’m going to be there with you somehow, oh...

I’m going to tie you up like a baby in a carriage car
Your legs won’t work cause you want me so
You just lie spread to the wall
The love you got is surely
All the love that I would ever need
I’m going to take you by my side
And love you tall, ‘til the world ends

Oh, but don’t you worry about a thing
No, 'cause I got you here with me
Don’t you worry about a
Just you and me
Floating through the empty, empty
Just you and me
Oh, graces
Oh, grace

Oh, when the world ends
We’ll be burning one
When the world ends
We’ll be sweet makin love
Oh, you know when the world ends
I’m going to take you aside and say
Let’s watch it fade away, fade away
And the world’s done
Ours just begun
It's done
Ours just begun

We’re gonna dive into the emptiness
We'll be swimming
I’m going to walk you through the pathless roads
I’m going to take you to the top of the mountain that’s no longer there
I’m going to take you to bed and love you, I swear
Like the end is here

I’m going to take you up to
I’m going to take you down on you
I’m going to hold you like an angel, angel

I’m going to love you
I’m going to love you
When the world ends
I’m going to hold you
When the world is over
We’ll just be beginning...

Burning Bridges by Chris Pureka

This is a story of burning bridges
and allowing time to pass
this is a story of forgiveness
and breaking things in my hands
this is a story of understanding
you can't choose who you love
and this is a story of soft skin
and rats in the walls

well you can't just pass along
the pain that comes around
you'll go dizzy until you fall
and I know you didn't mean to let me down
but you let me down so hard

this is a story of loaded glances
and leaning in too far
this is a story of vague advances
and confessions in smoky bars
so now I am walking down the sidewalk
and I am singing to myself
and I'm going to leave it all behind me now
cause I don't need this,
I just don't need this

and you can't just pass along
the pain that comes around
you'll go dizzy until you fall
and I know you didn't mean to let me down
but you let me down so hard

these memories are talking and talking
and I'll do anything to shut 'em up
I've got the pillow over my head
but they won't stop
no, no they won't stop

some fantasies are never meant to be
realized at all
and some regrets could be prevented
if you read the writing on the wall
oh and sometimes you say
"you know nothing can happen"
and then she leans over and lifts off your glasses
and the next thing you know you're just tangled and guilty
and you've got a head full of liquor and perfume
oh and when did you leave me
and when did you find her
and tell me is this just what you wanted...

and when did you leave me
and when did you find her
and tell me is this just what you wanted...

This is a story of burning bridges
and allowing time to pass
this is a story of forgiveness
and breaking things in my hands

this is a story of understanding
you can't choose who you love

and this is a story of soft skin
and rats in the walls

Fallen From Grace
By Heart

I pray for the love
That's fallen from grace
The tears left behind
Won't wash from my face
I'm left with all these feelings
But nothing fills the space
Of the love that once was
That's fallen from grace

Every little picture
Hanging on the wall
Every little trace of you
I've found them all
I close my eyes
It's all I can do
Everywhere I look
I see some part of you

Been through every reason
And they all seem to fit
No one's pleaded guilty now
There's nothing to admit
There's no one to blame baby
Once you believe
'Cos people only touch and go
But love will never leave

I pray for the love
That's fallen from grace
The tears left behind
Won't wash from my face
I'm left with all these feelings
But nothing fills the space
Of the love that once was
That's fallen from grace

I'm a little disappointed
I'm a little bit relieved
I feel a little sorry baby
I feel a bit deceived
No no not by you darlin'
I know love's demanding
Live and learning every day
But never understanding
Shattered dream and memories of you
Left hanging over me
A cross to bear
When love cools
A crown of thorns
For the queen of fools

I pray for the love
That's fallen from grace
The tears left behind
Won't wash from my face
I'm left with all these feelings
But nothing fills the space
Of the love that once was
That's fallen from grace

"Live and Learn" - The Cardigans

I came home in the morning
And everything was gone
Oh what have I done
I dropped dead in the hallway
Cursing the dawn
Oh come on sun
Why must I burn
I’m just trying to learn

I stared into the light
To kill some of my pain
It was all in vain
Cause no senses remain
But an ache in my body
And regret on my mind
But I’ll be fine

Cause I live and I learn
Yes I live and I learn
If you live you will learn
I live and I learn

Got kicked in the head
So I started a fight
Cause I knew I was right
But I learned I was wrong
I remember a slaughter
I remember I fought
For the money I brought
I got blistered and burned
And lost what I earned

But I live and I learn
Yes I live and I learn

I got, I got it now
She’s got, She’s got it now

I came to on a corner
With some help from a man and goddamn
I don’t seem to have learnt
That a lady in need is guilty indeed
So I paid and got laid in return
And I don’t know what I’ve learned

Well you get what you give
And hell yes I lived
But if you live as you learn
I don’t think I'd be learned
Oh with the sun in my eyes
Surprise, I’m living a life
But I don’t seem to learn
No I don’t think I can learn
I am vindicated, I am selfish, I am wrong...w3ndz on August 24th, 2006 10:27 am (UTC)
Invincible By Crossfade

I memorized all the words for you
But if you only knew
How much that is just not like me
I wait up late every night
Just to hear your voice
But you don't know that's nothing like me

You know I wonder have you already figured out
All these things I tried to hide
All this time I've been hoping you don't find out
All these things that I hide on the inside

I can't be held responsible
This is all so new to me
Just when I think I'm invincible
You come and happen to me

I wanna make sure everything's perfect for you
If you only knew that's not like me to follow through
Maybe even give up on these dead end dreams
Just to be with you
But you don't know that's nothing like me

Hey ya I wonder if you have already figured out
All these things I tried to hide
All this time I've been hoping you don't find out
All these things that I hide on the inside

I can't be held responsible
This is all so new to me
Just when I think I'm invincible
You come and happen to me

Now I'm waking up
I've finally had enough of this wreckable lifetime
I never though I'd survive it
Now I'm taking back
All I gave up for that
Leave my pain behind wash these stains from my life

Just when I thought
All was lost
You came and made it all okay

I can't be held responsible
This is all so new to me
Just when I think I'm invincible
You come and happen to me

I can't be held responsible
This is all so new to me
Just when I think I'm invincible
You come and happen to me

I memorized all the words for you
If you only knew
How much that's just not like me

Godspell - The Cardigans

I've heard about a great big swindle
I read about it in a book
The book flew out the window
Was later found by thieves and crooks

And now
they're singing hallelujah
I'm wondering just what did they find
They say "what's it to ya?"
Just take a place in line

And wait
So I wait
I wait
And wait
And I...

I’m one of a few survivors
In a drawer labeled "lost and found"
Moon travelers and deep sea divers
Whose oxygen supply ran out
Now maybe if their gods be willing
They'll give us something, fill our empty cups
Sit down in the boat, don’t spill it
Or we'll just have to line back up

And wait
So we wait
We wait
Yes we wait
And we wait
And we wait
We will wait
'Til we...

You can hear it in the beat they march to
And you can feel the earth shake when they start to dance
You can tell by the way they move you
It's not murder, it's an act of faith, baby

And as the world moves faster
Whiplashing us round and round
It's quite a slow disaster
But people keep on falling down

As they wait
We wait
And we wait
We wait
Hallelujah!

I Still Believe In My Friends - The Nields

I've seen shadows down the road, and baby it's cold
And I'm one year older, and baby I know
The window's covered with frost, and Jesus, a loss
Counting up the cost, let's get real, not much is possible

And I don't know whether I believe in me
But I still believe in my friends
I still believe in my friends
I still believe in my friends
I still believe in my friends

I never wanted to be much of a martyr
Don't worry baby, it can't get any harder
Then it gets harder
And I can't carry you any more
What doesn't kill you will make you stronger
I'm not dead yet so I must be stronger
Then it gets longer
Counting all the moments I can sit alone with you in the dark

I've seen wonders beyond compare, and hope in despair
I've been counting out my blessings, and baby you're one
And one is better than none, it's better than none

I still believe in my friends
I still believe in my friends
I still believe in my friends

Pacing the Cage - Bruce Cockburn

Sunset is an angel weeping
Holding out a bloody sword
No matter how I squint I cannot
Make out what it's pointing toward
Sometimes you feel like you live too long
Days drip slowly on the page
You catch yourself
Pacing the cage

I've proven who I am so many times
The magnetic strip's worn thin
And each time I was someone else
And every one was taken in
Powers chatter in high places
Stir up eddies in the dust of rage
Set me to pacing the cage

I never knew what you all wanted
So I gave you everything
All that I could pillage
All the spells that I could sing
It's as if the thing were written
In the constitution of the age
Sooner or later you'll wind up
Pacing the cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can't see what's round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend
Today these eyes scan bleached-out land
For the coming of the outbound stage
Pacing the cage
Pacing the cage

Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arm

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

I used to think this was freaking perfect for Babylon 5, but I'm recanting on that.


The Cruxshadows :: Winter Born (This Sacrifice)

    Dry your eyes
    Dry your eyes
    Dry your eyes
    Dry your eyes


    Dry your eyes
    And quietly bear this pain with pride,
    For heaven shall remember the silent and the brave.
    And promise me, they will never see
    the fear within our eyes. (my eyes are closed)
    For we will give strength to those who still remain.

    So bury fear, while fate draws near
    And hide the signs of pain.
    With noble acts
    The bravest souls endure,
    the heart's remains.

    Discard regret,
    That in this debt
    A better world is made
    And children of a newer day might remember
    And avoid our fate.

    I waited all day in the pouring rain,
    But nobody came,
    No nobody came.

    (Prepare for battle)

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    we will be your light
    you've asked me for my sacrifice
    and I am Winter born
    without denying, a faith is come
    that I have never known
    I hear the angels call my name
    and I am Winter born

    Hold your head up high
    For there is no greater love
    Think of the faces of the people you defend
    And promise me, they will never see
    The tears within our eyes (My eyes are closed)
    Although we are men with mortal sins,
    Angels never cry

    So bury fear for fate draws near
    And hide the signs of pain
    With noble acts, the bravest souls
    Endure the heart's remains

    Discard regret,
    That in this debt
    A better world is made
    That children of a newer day might remember, and avoid our fate.

    (prepare for battle)

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    We will be your light
    You've asked me for my sacrifice
    And I am Winter born
    Without denying, a faith in God
    That I have never known
    I hear the angels call my name
    And I am Winter born

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    I will be your light
    A lifetime for this destiny
    For I am winter born
    And in this moment...
    I will not run, it is my place to stand
    We few shall carry hope
    Within our bloodied hands

    And in our Dying
    We're more alive- than we have ever been
    I've lived for these few seconds
    For I am Winter born

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    We will be the light
    You've asked me for my sacrifice
    And I am Winter born
    Without denying, a faith in man
    That I have never known
    I hear the angels call my name
    And I am Winter born

    Within this moment
    I am for you,
    Though better men have failed
    I will give my life for love
    for I am Winter born

'Count on Me' by Default

I know that life ain't always good to you
I've seen exactly what its put you through
Thrown you around and turned you upside down
And so you got to thinking there was no way out
You started sinking and it pulled you down
It may be tough you've to get back up
Because you know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget

You can count on me
Cause I will carry you till you
Carry on

Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me
To hold you till the healing is done
And every time you fall apart
Well you can hide here in my arms
And you can count on me
To hold you till that feeling is gone

I wonder why nobody's waiting on you
I'd like to be the one to pull you through your darkest times
I'd love to be the light that finds you
I see a silver lining on your cloud
I'll pick you up whenever you fall down
Just take my hand and I will help you stand

Because you know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
You can count on me
Cause I will carry you till you carry on

Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me to hold you till the healing is done
And every time you fall apart you can hide here in my arms
And you can count on me to hold you till that feeling is
Gone so you can live today
Seems so long to yesterday
Keep on counting on me to carry you till you carry on
Carry on

You know that life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
You can count on me cause I will carry you till you carry on

Anytime you need someone
Somebody strong to lean on
Well you can count on me to hold you till that healing is done
And every time you fall apart
You can hide here in my arms
And you can count on me to hold you till that feeling is gone
Remember life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
That you can count on me to hold you till that feeling is gone

Remember life ain't over yet
I'm here for you so don't forget
That you can count on me to hold you till that feeling is gone

"Always a Woman" by Billy Joel

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child
But she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to live
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
She steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She will promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
But she can't be convicted
She's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me

"Lesser Things," by Jars of Clay:

It looks a lot like givin' up
Peace we bring is a bitter cup
Set our bodies down like offerings
While we pray to the god of the lesser things

If the wind should shake this house apart
The cradle hits the ground with a broken heart
Will we say we never knew a thing?
While we pray to the god of the lesser things

Is there grace for a wayward heart?
Is there grace for a wayward heart?
Grace, grace

Ash to ash and dust to dust
Steel on steel or rain to rust
What mortal breath blood money brings
Forth from the altar of the lesser things

"Nobody's Fault But My Own," by Beck

Treated you like a rusty blade
A throwaway from an open grave
Cut you loose from a chain gang and let you go
And on the day you said it's true
Some love holds, some gets used
Tried to tell you I never knew
It could be so sweet
Who could ever be so cruel,
Blame the devil for the things you do
It's such a selfish way to lose
The way you lose these wasted blues
These wasted Blues

Tell me that it's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own
That it's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own

When the moon is a counterfeit
Better find the one that fits
Better find the one that lights
The way for you

When the road is full of nails,
Garbage pails and darkened jails
And their tongues are full of heartless tales
That drain on you
Who would ever notice you
You fade into a shaded room
It's such a selfish lose
The way you lose these wasted blues
These wasted blues

Tell me that it's nobody's fault
Nobody's fault
But my own...
