The Lifting ~ R.E.M.

Grounded 5 a.m.

The nightlite is comforting.

But gravity is holding you.

Once settled into sleep

You have watched on repeat,

The story of your life

Across the ceiling;

And in review,

You've said the air was singing

It's calling you you don't believe

These things you've never seen.

"Good morning, how are you?

The weather's fine, the sky is blue-

It's perfect for our seminar..."

"Now close your eyes,

And start to breathe.

Allow the noise to recede...

...Allow yourself to drift and fly away.

But you just stay.

You've said the air was singing

It's calling you you don't believe

These things you've never seen, never dreamed.

Did you hear these voices calling

Did you hear these voices calling

Did you hear these voices calling you?

Locked into a conference room,

"We're only what our minds assume..."

And rationale is leaving you.

This conceit these systems of belief,

Your counselor agrees,

"You've always mark these boundaries now you're free..."

And with relief.

You've said the air was singing

It's calling you you don't believe

These things you've never seen, never heard, never dreamed.

You said the air was singing

It's calling you you don't believe

These things you've never seen.

Never [x19]

Once you had a dream

Of oceans, and sunken cities

Memories of things you've never known

"Another Christmas Song" - Stephen Colbert

Ho! It’s another Christmas song

Whoa! Get ready brother for another Christmas song

They play for a month, Ad infinitum

One day it struck me someone must write ‘em

So! It’s another Christmas song

Santa clause singing on naughty snow

Reindeer ringing in the mistletoe

The manger’s on fire,

The holly’s a-glow

Hear the baby Jesus cryin’ ho ho ho

Hey! It’s another Christmas song

Yay! Another oft’ returning (often returning)

Royalty earning Christmas song

I’ve got plenty more so go buy a modem

Log on to iTunes and pay to download ‘em

Pay! For another Christmas song

Chestnuts glisten on a silent night

Sleigh-bells kissing by candle light

The tree is frozen, the winter’s bright

Who’d have thought the wise men look so white

You! Don’t you wanna sing along?

To! My humble yule tide

Dreamed up pool side

Christmas song

Make it a part of your holiday canon

Make it the heart of my retirement plan and

Do! Sing another Christmas song

BEAT IT INTO ‘EM FELLAS!

WATCH MY FEET FLY!

But wait! Who’s this?

Young ones starving on a dead-end street

Taped up tabloids on their frost-bit feet

Hear what they carol as they huddle for heat

[All children:]

Please help the “Colbert Children†eat

Whoa! Just another Christmas song

No! This is like no other Christmas-mother-lovin’-song

Public to whom I'm so proud to have pandered

Please save my family and make this a standard

Go! Join the ever-growing throng

Who are singing

And swingin’

While my kids are clinging to the hope

My register’s ching-ching chinging from the cash I’m bringing

From another Christmas song

Why Do You Let Me Stay Here-She and Him

Why do let me stay here?

All by myself

Why don't you come and play here?

I'm just sitting on the shelf

Why don't you sit right down and stay awhile?

We like the same things and I like your style

Its not a secret; why do you keep it?

I'm just sitting on the shelf

I got to get your presence

Let's make it known

I think you're just so pleasant

I would like you for my own

Why don't you sit right down and make me smile? (uh huh)

You make me feel like I am just a child

Why do you end it?

Just give me credit

I'm just sitting on the shelf

"The New Year" - Death Cab For Cutie

So this is the new year.

And i don't feel any different.

The clanking of crystal

Explosions off in the distance (in the distance).

So this is the new year

And I have no resolutions

For self assigned penance

For problems with easy solutions

So everybody put your best suit or dress on

Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once

Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn

As thirty dialogs bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days

Then i could travel just by folding a map

No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways

There'd be no distance that could hold us back.

There'd be no distance that could hold us back [x2]

So this is the new year [x4]

My Beloved Monster-Eels

My beloved monster and me

we go everywhere together

wearing a raincoat that has 4 sleeves

it gets us through all kinds of weather

chorus:

She will always be the only thing

that comes between me and the awful sting that comes from living in a world that's

so

damn

mean

My beloved monster is tough

if she wants she will destroy you

but if you lay her down for a kiss

her little heart it could explode

She will always be the only thing

that comes between me and the awful sting that comes from living in a world that's

so

damn

mean

lalalalalalalalalala

lalalalalala

Hope ~ R.E.M.

You want to go out Friday

And you want to go forever

You know that sounds childish

That you've dreamt of alligators

You hope that we are with you

And you hope you're recoginezed

You want to go forever

You see it in my eyes

I'm lost in the confusion

And it doesn't seem to matter

You really can't believe it

And you hope it's getting better

You want to trust the doctors

Their procedure is the best

But the last try was a failure

And the intern was a mess

And they did the same to Matthew

And he bled 'til Sunday night

They're saying don't be frightened

But you're weakened by the sight of it

You lock into a pattern

And you know that it's the last ditch

You're trying to see through it

And it doesn't make sense

But they're saying don't be frightened

And they're killing alligators

And they're hog-tied

And accepting of the struggle

You want to trust religion

And you know it's allegory

But the people who are followers

Have written their own story

So you look up to the heavens

And you hope that it's a spaceship

And it's something from your childhood

You're thinking don't be frightened

You want to climb the ladder

You want to see forever

You want to go out Friday

And you want to go forever

And you want to cross your DNA

To cross your DNA with something reptile

And you're questioning the sciences

And questioning religion

You're looking like an idiot

And you no longer care

And you want to bridge the schism,

A built-in mechanism to protect you

And you're looking for salvation

And you're looking for deliverance

You're looking like an idiot

And you no longer care

'Cause you want to climb the ladder

You want to go forever

And you want to go out Friday

You want to go forever

Common People ~ Pulp

She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge

She studied sculpture at St Martin's college

That's where I...

Caught her eye

She told me that her Dad was loaded

I said "In that case I'll have rum and coca-cola."

She said "Fine,"...

And then in thirty seconds time she said

"I want to live like common people

I want to do whatever common people do

I want to sleep with common people

I want to sleep with common people like you."

Oh what else could I do?

I said "I'll see what I can do."

I took her to a supermarket

I don't know why, but I had to start it somewhere

So it started... there

I said "Pretend you've got no money."

But she just laughed an said "Oh you're so funny."

I said "Yeah?

Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here

Are you sure you want to live like common people

You want to see whatever common people see

You want to sleep with common people

You want to sleep with common people like me?"

But she didn't... understand

She just smiled and held my hand

Rent a flat above a shop

Cut your hair and get a job

Smoke some fags and play some pool

Pretend you never went to school

But still you'll never get it right

'cos when you're laid in bed at night

Watching roaches climb the wall

If you called your dad he could stop it all yeah

You'll never live like common people

You'll never do what ever common people do

You'll never fail like common people

You'll never watch your life slide out of view

And then dance, and drink, and screw

Because there's nothing else to do

Sing along with the common people

Sing along and it might just get you through

Laugh along with the common people

Laugh along even though they're laughing at you

And the stupid things that you do

Because you think that poor is cool.

Like a dog lying in a corner

They will bite you and never warn you

Look out.

They'll tear your insides out

'cos everybody hates a tourist

Especially one who thinks it's all such a laugh

Yeah and the chip stain and grease will come out in the bath

You will never understand

How it feels to live your life

With no meaning or control

And with nowhere left to go

You are amazed that they exist

And they burn so bright whilst you can only wonder why.

Rent a flat above a shop

Cut your hair and get a job

Smoke some fags and play some pool

Pretend you never went to school

But still you'll never get it right

'cos when you're laid in bed at night

Watching... roaches climb the wall

If you called your Dad he could stop it all, Yeah.

Never live like common people

Never do what common people do

Never fail like common people

Never watch your life... slide out of view

And then dance, and drink... and screw

Because there's nothing else to do

I want to live with common people like you.

I don't really understand the meaning. I think it's about two people meeting and perhaps falling in love?

What's your opinion?

Echoes - Pink Floyd

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves

In labyrinths of coral caves

The echo of a distant tide

Comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green and submarine

And no one showed us to the land

And no one knows the wheres or whys

But something stirs and something tries

And starts to climb toward the light

Strangers passing in the street

By chance two separate glances meet

And I am you and what I see is me

And do I take you by the hand

And lead you through the land

And help me understand the best I can

And no one calls us to move on

And no one forces down our eyes

And no one speaks and no one tries

And no one flies around the sun

Now this is the day you fall upon my waking eyes

Inviting and inciting me to rise

And through the window in the wall

Comes streaming in on sunlight wings

A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no one sings me lullabies

And no one makes me close my eyes

And so I throw the windows wide

And call to you across the sky

By Mr. Waters

Parting Ways ~ Pearl Jam

Behind her eyes there's curtains

and they've been closed to hide the flames.

Remains.

She know their future's burning

but she can smile just the same.

Same.

And though her mood is fine today

there's a fear they'll soon be parting ways.

Standing like a statue.

A chin of stone a heart of clay.

Hey.

And thought he's too big a man to say

there's a fear they'll soon be parting ways.

Drifting away.

Drifting away.

Drifting away.

Away.

Away.

Fashion Crisis Hits New York - The Frank and Walters

Fashion crisis hits New York

I saw a blind man he was eating his fork

he said thats what you had to do to be cool

you eat your cutlery instead of your food

what a hippy diddly crazy world

what a hippyd iddly crazy world

Well fashion it moves on and on

while the things we've bought

have been hardly worn

I still like my old three piece suite

but its in the shed and I've got no seat

oh no no...

They say necklines to the waist

you change your body to keep up with the pace

the rich buy dearest 'cause want to be sure

the poor can't afford to be that insecure

what a hippy diddly crazy world

what a hippy diddly crazy world

Being A Girl (Part 1) - Mansun

Being a boy's like sucking on a lemon

And I judge myself by the adverts I see

My deodorant hides the real me

These things elevate me above animals

I feel like being a girl

Being a girl, being a girl, being a girl, being a girl

And my life never tasted sweeter

I'm so boring, my clothes wanna keep

Someone else warm, someone cooler

Tax on cigarettes, treats my cancer

These things elevate me above animals

I feel like being a girl

Being a girl, being a girl, being a girl, being a girl

And my life never tasted sweeter

Schism ~ Tool

I know the pieces fit

Cuz I watched them fall away

Mildewed and smoldering

Fundamental differing

Pure intention juxtaposed

Will set two lover's souls in motion

Disintegrating as it goes

Testing our communication

The light that fueled our fire then

Has burned a hole between us so

We cannot see to reach an end

Crippling our communication

I know the pieces fit

Cuz I watched them tumble down

No fault none to blame

It doesn't mean I don't desire

To point the finger

Blame the other

Watch the temple topple over

To bring the pieces back together

Rediscover communication

The poetry that comes

From the squaring off between

And the circling is worth it

Finding beauty in the dissonance

There was a time that the pieces fit

But I watched them fall away

Mildewed amd smoldering

Strangled by our coveting

I've done the math enough to know

The dangers of our second guessing

Doomed to crumble unless we grow

And strengthen our communication

Cold, cold, cold,

Cold silence has

A tendency to

Atrophy any

Sense of compassion

Between supposed lovers

Between supposed lovers

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit

I know the pieces fit!

Try Not to Breathe ~ R.E.M.

I will try not to breathe

I can hold my head still with my hands at my knees

These eyes are the eyes of the old, shivering and bold

I will try not to breathe

This decision is mine. I have lived a full life

And these are the eyes that I want you to remember, oh

I need something to fly over my grave again

I need something to breathe

I will try not to burden you

I can hold these inside. I will hold my breath

Until all these shivers subside,

Just look in my eyes

I will try not to worry you

I have seen things that you will never see

Leave it to memory me. I shudder to breathe

I want you to remember, oh (you will never see)

I need something to fly (something to fly)

Over my grave again (you will never see)

I need something to breathe (something to breathe)

Baby, don't shiver now

Why do you shiver now? (I have seen things that you will never see)

I need something to fly (something to fly)

Over my grave again. (I have seen things that you will never see)

I need something to breathe,

oooh...

I will try not to worry you

I have seen things that you will never see

Leave it to memory me. Don't dare me to breathe

I want you to remember, oh (you will never see)

I need something to fly (something to fly)

Over my grave again (you will never see)

I need something to breathe (something to breathe)

Baby, don't shiver now

Why do you shiver? (I have seen things that you will never see)

I need something to breathe (something to breathe - I have seen things that you will never see)

I want you to remember...

Do Me a Favour ~ Arctic Monkeys

Well the morning was complete

There was tears on the steering wheel dripping on the seat

Several hours or several weeks

I'd have the cheek to say they're equally as bleak

It's the beginning of the end

The car went up the hill and disappeared around the bend

Ask anyone they'll tell you that it's these times that it tends

To start to break in half

To start to fall apart

Hold on to your heart

Do me a favour and break my nose

Do me a favour and tell me to go away

Do me a favour and stop asking questions

As she walked away

Well her shoes were untied

And the eyes were all red

You could see that we'd cried

And I watched and I waited until she was inside

Forcing a smile and waving goodbye

Curiosity becomes a heavy load

Too heavy to hold

Too heavy to hold

Curiosity becomes a heavy load

Too heavy to hold

We'll force you to be cold

Do me a favour and ask if you need some help

She said "do me a favour and stop flattering yourself"

And to tear apart the ties that bind

Perhaps "f**k off" might be too kind

Perhaps "f**k off" might be too kind...

My Perfect Cousin~The Undertones

Now I've got a cousin called Kevin

He's sure to go to heaven

Always spotless clean and neat

The smoothest you can get them

He's got a fur lined sheepskin jacket

My ma said they cost a packet

She won't even let me explain

That me and Kevin were just not the same

Oh my perfect cousin

What I like to do he doesn't

He's his family's private joy

His mothers little golden boy

He's gotta a grade in economics

Maths - physics and bionics

He thinks that I'm a cabbage

Cos I hate university challenge

Even at the age of ten

Smart boy Kevin was a smart boy then

He always beat me at Subbuteo

Cos he flicked the kick

And I didn't know

Oh my perfect cousin ..

His mother bought him a synthesizer

Got the Human League into advise her

Now he's making lots of noise

Playing along with the art school boys

Girls try to attract his attention

But what a shame it's in vain total rejection

He will never be left on the shelf

Cos Kevin he's in love with himself

Inside a wall street mind a psycho lurks

Lines of cocaine cut in hell

Obsessive hands gently grab your neck

Compulsively youll die... I hate people

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh

Struggling to breathe, go

The sweet asphyxiation and dismemberment

Sex puts me in the mood to make you die

Obsessive hands gently grab your neck

Look into sick eyes... I hate people

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh

Struggling to breathe

Go - a machine of penalty

Go - the sweet insanity

Go - fade to black tranquility

Go - youre looking through the eyes of a psycho, whoa-oh

An american psycho, whoa-oh

An american psycho, whoa-oh

An american psycho

Psycho

Inside a wall street mind a psycho lurks

Lines of cocaine cut in hell

Obsessive hands gently grab your neck

Compulsively youll die... I hate people

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh

Struggling to breathe

Go - a machine of penalty

Go - the sweet insanity

Go - fade to black tranquility

Go - youre looking through the eyes of a psycho, whoa-oh

An american psycho, whoa-oh

An american psycho, whoa-oh

An american psycho
