I broke the surface so I can breathe
I close my eyes so I can see
I tie my arm to be free
Don't you ever say I'm free!
She's not breathing
She's not moving
She's not coming back
I burn a fire to stay cool
I burn myself, I am the fuel
I never meant to be cruel
Don't you ever say I'm cruel!
She's not breathing
She's not moving
She's not coming back
Shut the door so I can leave,
Shut the door!

The rain falls down on last year's man,
that's a Jew's harp on the table,
that's a crayon in his hand.
And the corners of the blueprint are ruined since they rolled
far past the stems of thumbtacks
that still throw shadows on the wood.
And the skylight is like skin for a drum I'll never mend
and all the rain falls down amen
on the works of last year's man.
I met a lady, she was playing with her soldiers in the dark
oh one by one she had to tell them
that her name was Joan of Arc.
I was in that army, yes I stayed a little while;
I want to thank you, Joan of Arc,
for treating me so well.
And though I wear a uniform I was not born to fight;
all these wounded boys you lie beside,
goodnight, my friends, goodnight.

I came upon a wedding that old families had contrived;
Bethlehem the bridegroom,
Babylon the bride.
Great Babylon was naked, oh she stood there trembling for me,
and Bethlehem inflamed us both
like the shy one at some orgy.
And when we fell together all our flesh was like a veil
that I had to draw aside to see
the serpent eat its tail.

Some women wait for Jesus, and some women wait for Cain
so I hang upon my altar
and I voice my acts again.
And I take the one who finds me back to where it all began
when Jesus was the honeymoon
and Cain was just the man.
And we read from pleasant Bibles that are bound in blood and skin
that the wilderness is gathering
all its children back again.

The rain falls down on last year's man,
an hour has gone by
and he has not moved his hand.
But everything will happen if he only gives the word;
the lovers will rise up
and the mountains touch the ground.
But the skylight is like skin for a drum I'll never mend
and all the rain falls down amen
on the works of last year's man.

alright I'm on johnson avenue in san luis obispo
and I'm five years old or six maybe.
and indications there's something wrong with our new house
trip down the wire twice daily
I'm in the living room watching the watergate hearings
while my step father yells at my mother.
launches a glass across the room, straight at her head
and I dash upstairs to take cover.
lean in close to my little record player on the floor.
so this is what the volume knobs for.

I listen to dance music.
dance music.

ok so look I'm seventeen years old,
and you're the last best thing I've got going.
but then the special secret sickness starts to eat through you.
what am I supposed to do?
no way of knowing,
so I follow you down your twisting alleyways,
find a few cul de sacs of my own.
there's only one place where this road ever ends up.
and I don't want to die alone.
let me down, let me down, let me down gently.
when the police come to get me

I'm listening to dance music.
dance music.

I broke free on a saturday morning.
I put the pedal to the floor.
headed north on mills avenue,
and listened to the engine roar.

my broken house behind me and good things ahead,
a girl named cathy wants a little of my time.
six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking,
ahhh listen to the engine whine.

I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.

I played video games in a drunken haze
I was seventeen years young.
hurt my knuckles punching the machines
the taste of scotch rich on my tongue.

and then cathy showed up and we hung out.
trading swigs from the bottle all bitter and clean
locking eyes, holding hands,
twin high maintenance machines.

I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.

I drove home in the california dusk.
I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum.
picture the look on my stepfather's face,
ready for the bad things to come.

I downshifted as I pulled into the driveway.
the motor screaming out stuck in second gear.
the scene ends badly as you might imagine,
in a cavalcade of anger and fear.

there will be feasting and dancing in jerusalem next year.

I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.
I am going to make it through this year if it kills me.

the one true God is Doctor Doom and we should all be worshiping him.
So glad to see you well
Overcome and completely silent now
With heaven's help
You cast your demons out
And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and
Tug you off your cloud
But I'm more than just a little curious
How you're planning to go about
Making your amends
To the dead...
To the dead...

Here I lay
(Still and breathless)
Just like always
(Still I want some more)
Mirrors sideways
(Who cares what's behind?)
Just like always
Still your passenger...

The chrome buttons, buckles on leather surfaces
These and other lucky witnesses
Now to calm me
This time won't you please...
Drive! Faster!

Roll the window down
This cool night air is curious
Let the whole world look in
Who cares who sees anything?
I'm your passenger!
I'm your passenger...

I will find a way
I'm confused
(Oh)
But I think I can try
I will save your life
I will save your life
I will try...
For you

Staring at the sea.
Will she come?
Is there hope for me
after all is said and done?

Anything at any price...
all of this for you.
All the spoils of a wasted life...
all of this for you.

All the world has closed her eyes,
tired faith all worn and thin,
for all we could have done,
and all that could have been.

Ocean pulls me close,
and whispers in my ear...
The destiny I've chose,
all becoming clear.

The currents have their say.
The time is drawing near.
Washes me away,
makes me disappear.

And I descend from grace,
in arms of undertow.
I will take my place
in the great below.

"He come to me with money in his hand. He offered me. I didn't ask him. I wasn't knocking someone's door down. I was running from that. When I got out, I was in that. I was already through that. I had that. I had the studio. I went to the studio--went to Fox Studios. I had it all, and I looked at it, and I said, 'This is a bigger jail than I just got out of.' I don't wanna take my time going to work. I got a motorcycle and a sleeping bag, and ten or fifteen girls. What the hell I wanna go off into and s--and go to work for? Work for what? Money? I got all the money in the world. I'm the king, man! I run the underworld, guy! I decide who does what, and where they do it at! What am I gonna run around and act like I'm some teenybopper somewhere for somebody else's money? I make the money, man. I roll the nickels. The game is mine. I deal the cards."

Beware.

I close my eyes and seize it.
I clench my fists and beat it.
I light my torch and burn it.
I am the beast I worship.

I close my eyes and seize it.
I clench my fists and beat it.
I light my torch and burn it.
I am the beast I worship.

And I know soon come my time,
for in mine void, a pale horse burns,
but I fear not the time I've taken
past the point of no return.
Wage war like no tomorrow,
'cause no hell, there won't be one.
For all who the deny the struggle,
the triumphant overcome.



Shit but shanked by my disrespect.
Dismiss this life. Worship death.
Cold blood night of serpent's breath
exhaled like spells from the endlessness
in the bottomless well of emptiness,
channeled to invoke what we represent.



In the time before time eyes 'bove which horns
curve like psychotropic scythes,
and smell of torn flesh bled dry
by hell swarms of pestis flies,
vomiting forth flames lit by
an older than ancient force
that slays this life with no remorse.



Worship is not on bended knee.
Nature knows not of mercy.
To pray is to accept defeat.



Harsh winds flay my flesh to bone.
In splintered skeleton, I roam
wastelands with not to call my own,
but the path. I walk alone.
The hunger burns within my gut
as my bones turn into dust.

And who are you, the proud lord said,
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that's all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws,
And mine are long and sharp, my lord,
as long and sharp as yours.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

We seed. We feel. We need. We fight.
We seal. We cut. We seek. We love.

We grow. We take. We eat. We break.
We hunt. We hurt. We seize. We kneel.

We heal. We fuck. We pray. We hate.
We reach. We touch. We lose. We taste.

We learn. We lie. We wound. We waste.
We hold. We kill. We love. We veil.

We crawl. We seek. We fail. We rage.
We fuck. We come. We love. We work.

We search. We share. We wound. We keep.
We blind. We take. We hide. We hold.

We breathe. We steal. We bind. We build.
We seed. We fuck. We rage. We weep.

We betray. We serve. We regret. We learn.
With tooth and claw, we touch. We teach.

We fuck. We love. We forget. We regret.
We love. We love. We love. We love.

We fuck. We love. We love. We fuck.
We love. We love. We love. We love.

We love. We love. We love. We love.
We love. We love.

Here's a friendly reminder not to let this turn into a de facto spam thread. Take it easy folks.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Ugly Americans, with a little hint of Apocalypse Now.
Soooooy un perdidoooor
I'm a loser, baby, so why don't ya kill me...
(Double-barrel buckshot)

-Beck, Loser

I've been, drifting along,
on the same, stale old shoes.
Loose ends, tying a noose
in the back, of my mind.

-Beck, Jackass

I don't know why they are my favourite, they've just stuck as easy to know lyrics for no particular reason.
