"Ready To Start" - Arcade Fire

Businessmen drink my blood

Like the kids in art school said they would

And I guess I'll just begin again

You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would

And if I was bored, you know I would

And if I was yours, but I'm not

All the kids have always known

That the emperor wears no clothes

But to bow to down to them anyway

Is better than to be alone

If I was scared, I would

And if I was bored, you know I would

And if I was yours, but I'm not

Now you're knocking at my door

Saying please come out with us tonight

But I would rather be alone

Than pretend I feel alright

If the businessmen drink my blood

Like the kids in art school said they would

Then I guess I'll just begin again

You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would

And if I was pure, you know I would

And if I was yours, but I'm not

Now I'm Ready to Start

If I was scared, I would

And if I was pure, you know I would

And if I was yours, but I'm not

Now I'm Ready to Start

Now I'm Ready to Start

I would rather be wrong

Than live in the shadows of your song

My mind is open wide

And now I'm ready to start

Now I'm Ready to Start

My mind is open wide

Now I'm Ready to Start

Not sure you'll open the door

To step out into the dark

Now I'm ready!

Devendra Banhart- A Ribbon

I'd like to sing to you, if you'd like me too

I'd like to sing to you, if you'd like me too

I'd like to sing, sing, sing, sing, sing to you

I'd like to dance with you, if you'd like me too

I'd like to dance with you, if you'd like me too

I'd like to dance, dance, dance, dance, dance with you

I'd like to sleep with you, if you'd like me too

I'd like to sleep with you, if you'd like me too

I'd like to sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep with you

Ribbons around the fumes, we'll be sleeping soon

Ribbons around the fumes, we'll be sleeping soon

Let me tell you ‘bout the end of the beginning

Or of the end; depends on where you land.

You came on the scene just as the party’s ending

I’ll start again and then you’ll understand.

It’s like the bird

That you can’t see

But you can hear the pretty music in the tree.

It’s like the word

That you can’t say

But you can sing the pretty music anyway.

Now I know there are some things that you need to discover:

Turn off your mind and do yourself a favor!

(like the bird,

you can’t see,

it’s a part of you, woo

and it’s a part of me)

Girl, I can see behind your eyes your mind is spinnin’

Cause if your eyes can make the skies come clear

So you came in at the bottom of the inning

And no one knows if whether you’re from here

It’s like the bird

That you can’t see

But you can hear the pretty music in the tree.

It’s like the word

That you can’t say

But you can sing the pretty music anyway.

Now I know there are some things require concentration:

Turn off your mind and use your ‘magination.

(girl you know what I’m talking about)

Come down and plant your feet into the ground.

Feel free; plant your mind in mystery.

So you want to know the meaning of my song?

I’ll tell you now: it’s all about how you feel.

Baby, I don’t know or care where you are from,

Just so I know that where you go is real.

It’s like the bird

That you can’t see

But you can hear the pretty music in the tree.

It’s like the word

That you can’t say

But you can sing the pretty music anyway.

Now I know there are some things that you need to explain, girl:

Turn off your mind; you’re using up your brain, girl!

(c’mon)

(like the bird,

you can’t see,

it’s a part of you, woo

and it’s a part of me)

Like the bird.

Something So Right (Paul Simon)

You've got the cool water

When the fever runs high

You've got the look of lovelight in your eyes

And I was in crazy motion

'Til you calmed me down

It took a little time

But you calmed me down

Something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it

First to admit it

Last one to know

Something goes right

Well it's likely to lose me

It's apt to confuse me

It's such an unusual sight

Oh, I can't, can't get used to something so right

Something so right

They've got a wall in China

It's a thousand miles long

To keep out the foreigners they made it strong

I've got a wall around me

That you can't even see

It took a little time

To get next to me

Something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it

First to admit it

Last one to know

Something goes right

Well it's likely to lose me

It's apt to confuse me

It's such an unusual sight

Oh, I swear, I can't get used to something so right

Something so right

Some people never say the words "I love you"

It's not their style to be so bold

Some people never say those words "I love you"

Like a child they're longing to be told

Something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it

First to admit it

Last one to know

Something goes right

Well it's likely to lose me

It's apt to confuse me

'cause it's such an unusual sight

I swear I can't, can't get used to something so right

Something so right

How is it possible that Bruce Springsteen didn't write this song? Dylan's kid even sounds like Bruce when he sings it. When they get to the lyrics about the parade, I start to think they should have just given it to Bruce.

One Headlight - The Wallflowers

So long ago, I don't remember when

That's when they say I lost my only friend

Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease

As I listened through the cemetery trees

I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn

The long broken arm of human law

Now it always seemed such a waste

She always had a pretty face

So I wondered how she hung around this place

Chorus:

Hey, come on try a little

Nothing is forever

There's got to be something better than

In the middle

But me & Cinderella

We put it all together

We can drive it home

With one headlight

She said it's cold

It feels like Independence Day

And I can't break away from this parade

But there's got to be an opening

Somewhere here in front of me

Through this maze of ugliness and greed

And I seen the sun up ahead

At the county line bridge

Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead

We'll run until she's out of breath

She ran until there's nothin' left

She hit the end-it's just her window ledge

(chorus)

Well this place is old

It feels just like a beat up truck

I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn

Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes

This place is always such a mess

Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn

I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else

Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same

But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams

I think her death it must be killin' me

Vicarious ~ Tool

Eye on the the TV

'Cause tragedy thrills me

Whatever flavor it happens to be, like...

"Killed by the husband"

"Drowned by the ocean"

"Shot by his own son"

"She used a poison in his tea, and kissed him goodbye"

That's my kind of story

It's no fun 'til someone dies

Don't look at me like I am a monster

Frown out your one face, but with the other

Stare like a junkie into the TV

Stare like a zombie

While the mother holds her child, watches him die

Hands to the sky crying, "Why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die...from a distance

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies

You all need it too, don't lie

Why can't we just admit it?

Why can't we just admit it?

We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

Neither the brave nor bold

Will write as the story's told

We won't give pause until the blood is flowing

I need to watch things die...from a good safe distance

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies

You all feel the same, so...

Why can't we just admit it?

Blood like rain come down

Drum on grave and ground

Part vampire

Part warrior

Carnivore and Voyeur

Stare at the transmitter

Sing to the death rattle

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie

La, la, la, la, la, la-la-lie

Credulous at best your desire to believe in

Angels in the hearts of men

Pull your head on out your hippie haze and give a listen

Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile, so impersonal

Devour to survive... so it is, so it's always been

We all feed on tragedy

It's like blood to a vampire

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies

Much better you than I

"One Step Beyond" - Madness

Hey you, don't watch that

Watch this!

This is the heavy heavy monster sound

The nuttiest sound around

So if you've come in off the street

And you're beginning to feel the heat

Well, listen buster

You better start to move your feet

To the rockinest, rock-steady beat

of Madness

One step beyond!

- - - - - - - -

One step beyond!

- - - - - - - -

One step beyond!

- - - - - - - -

One step beyond!

One step beyond!

One step beyond!!

Method of Modern Love- Hall & Oates

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e...M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e...

In the moonlight, under starlight

Songs old as the night are what I`ve been dreaming of

Everybody`s hard as iron, locked in a modern world

Dreams are make of a different stuff

I believe love will always be the same

The ways and means are the parts subject to change

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, it`s a method of modern love

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, it`s a method of modern love

I can call you, got your number

Share my life with you a thousand miles away

If you`ve hurt me, I haven`t shown it

Time`s too tight to fight and we`re never face to face

Style is timeless and fashion`s only now

We`ve got the ways, no one needs to show us how

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, it`s a method of modern love

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, it`s a method of modern love

Method of, method of, la la love, love...

Method of, method of, la la love, love...

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, la la, love... (It's the method, baby)

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, love, love...It`s a modern love...

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, I know what you`re dreaming of

M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e, what we got is the method of modern love

It`s the method of, it`s the method of modern love

We know what we`re doing, don't we?

We know what we`re doing, don't we?

In the moonlight, in the starlight, songs old as the night

What are we dreaming of?

It`s the method of, it`s the method of modern love

Dreams are made of a different stuff, emanating

In a method of modern love

A present tense has no time behind,

don't fall for the same old lines

(M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e)

Don`t you know that it`s the method of modern love?

I got a way with words, I got a way with rhyme

I do believe that I'm inclined to look ahead and not behind

I got the method, baby, and it's right on time

It's a method of modern love, it's a method of modern love

(M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e) I know what you're dreaming of

It's a method of modern love (M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e)

Don't mess with imperfection (M-e-t-h-o-d-o-f-l-o-v-e)

Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) ~ Arcade Fire

They heard me singing and they told me to stop

"Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock"

These days my life, I feel it has no purpose

But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

'Cause on the surface the city lights shine

They're calling at me, "Come and find your kind!"

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small

That we can never get away from the sprawl

Living in the sprawl

Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains

And there's no end in sight

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

We rode our bikes to the nearest park

Sat under the swings and kissed in the dark

We shield our eyes from the police lights

We run away, but we don't know why

And like a mirror, the city lights shine

They're screaming at us, "We don't need your kind"

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small

That we can never get away from the sprawl

Living in the sprawl

Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains

And there's no end in sight

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

They heard me singing and they told me to stop

"Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock"

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small

Can we ever get away from the sprawl?

Living in the sprawl

Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains

And there's no end in sight

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

Diddy Doo Wop (I Hear The Voices)- Hall & Oates from their album Voices (this wasn't a single i think)

Look at me, I'm running

Ooh, what have I done

Oh, I must have hurt someone

It's dark in Subway Station

Gimme place to hide

Oh, I hear the voices deep inside

And oh, the voice is singing

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh oh oh

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh

Well, it's the voice that I hear at the subway stop

Keep singing, diddy doo wop

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh oh oh

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh

Well, it starts in my head and it ends when I stop

Keep singing, diddy doo wop

Charlie liked the Beatles

Sam, he liked rich girl

But I'm still hung up on the duke of earl

Reaching for the handle

I'm slicing through the air

Oh, the doo wop voices everywhere

And oh, the Duke is singing

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh oh oh

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh

Well, it's the voice that I hear at the subway stop

Keep singing, diddy doo wop

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh oh oh

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh

Well, it starts in my head and it end when I stop

Diddy doo wop, keep singing

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh oh oh

Diddy doo wop, oh oh oh

It starts in my head and it end when I stop

Keep singing, diddy doo wop

Fill me up with gace ~ Sophe Lux

Fill me up with grace, 'cause I'm fallin'

Fill me up with grace, 'cause I'm fallin'

Oh, now, I'm fallin' down

and I'll bury my crown

Fill me up with tears and Jesus

Fill me up with tears and Jesus

'Cause I could use some meaning

oh and I could use some healing

I found a reason today to be livin'

and I found a reason why there's still light on your ancient face

to the pillars of smoke

through the mystical hills to your holy grace

I found the answer

I found the answer

And you have stained my heart with the blood of a thousand rose petals

The Boy With the Arab Strap ~ Belle and Sebastian

A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time

The odor of old prison food takes a long time to pass you by

Day upon day of this wandering gets you down

Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old town

Hovering silence from you is a giveaway

Squalor and smoke's not your style, I don't like this place, we better go

Then I compare notes with your older sister

I am a lazy git, she is as pure as the cold driven snow

What did you learn from your time in the solitary cell of your mind?

There was noise to distract you from anything good and the old prison food

Colour my life with the chaos of trouble 'cause anything's better than posh isolation

I missed the bus, you were laid on your back with the boy with the arab strap

With the boy from the arab strap

It's something to speak of the way you are feeling

To crowds there assembled, do you ever feel you have gone too far?

Everyone suffers in silence a burden, the man who drives mini cabs down in Old Compton

The Asian man with his love hate affair with his racist clientele

A central location for you is a must

As you stagger about making free with your lewd and lascivious boasts

We all know you're soft 'cause we've all seen you dancing

We all know you're hard 'cause we all saw you drinking from noon until noon again

You're the boy with the filthy laugh

You're the boy with the arab strap

Strapped to the table with suits from the shelter shop

Comic celebrity takes a backseat as the cigarette catches

And sets off the smoke alarm

What do you make of the cool set in London?

You're constantly updating your hit parade of your ten biggest wanks

She's a waitress and she's got style

Twist ~ I Am Kloot

Twisted on destiny

Fate and three wishes

We f*ck and we fight

Someone else does the dishes

And meantime my memory

Reminisces and twists

There was a time

When we were filled with laughter

Haplessly hoping

Happy ever after

Did we string up a heart

Let it swing from the rafters

And bleed

There's blood on your legs, I love you

There's blood on your legs, I love you

There's blood on your legs, I love you

Evoke the rich tapestry

Of love and devotion

Emote the sweet saccharine

Of all that devotion

Forget all about that

And fall in this ocean with me

With me

Twist, snap, I love you

Twist, snap, I love you

Twist, snap, I love you

Da da da...

There's blood on your legs, I love you

There's blood on your legs, I love you

There's blood on your legs, I love you

I love you

I love you

I love you

I love you

PJ Harvey ~ The Colour of the Earth

Louis was my dearest friend

Fighting in the ANZAC trench

Louis ran forward from the line

I never saw him again

Later in the dark

I thought I heard Louis' voice

Calling for his mother, then me

But I couldn't get to him

He's still up on that hill

20 years on that hill

Nothing more than a pile of bones

But I think of him still

If I was asked I'd tell

The colour of the earth that day

It was dull and browny red

The colour of blood, I'd say

JOHNNY HORTON

"Sink The Bismark"

In May of nineteen forty-one the war had just begun

The Germans had the biggest ship that had the biggest guns

The Bismark was the fastest ship that ever sailed the seas

On her deck were guns as big as steers and shells as big as trees

Out of the cold and foggy night came the British ship the Hood

And evry British seaman, he knew and understood

They had to sink the Bismark, the terror of the sea

Stop those guns as big as steers and those shells as big as trees

We'll find that German battleship thats makin' such a fuss

We gotta sink the Bismark 'cause the world depends on us

Hit the decks a-runnin' boys and spin those guns around

When we find the Bismark we gotta cut her down

The Hood found the Bismark and on that fatal day

The Bismark started firin' fifteen miles away

We gotta sink the Bismark was the battle sound

But when the smoke had cleared away

The mighty Hood went down

For six long days and weary nights they tried to find her trail

Churchill told the people "Put ev'ry ship a-sail"

'Cause somewhere on that ocean I know she's gotta be

We gotta sink the Bismark to the bottom of the sea

We'll find that German battleship thats makin' such a fuss

We gotta sink the Bismark 'cause the world depends on us

Hit the decks a-runnin' boys and spin those guns around

When we find the Bismark we gotta cut her down

The fog was gone on the seventh day and they saw the mornin' sun

Ten hours away from homeland the Bismark made its' run

The admiral of the British fleet said "Turn those bows around"

We found that German battleship and we're gonna cut her down

The British guns were aimed and the shells were comin' fast

The first shell hit the Bismark, they knew she couldn't last

That mighty German battleship is just a memory

"Sink the Bismark" was the battle cry that shook the seven seas

We found that German battleship was makin' such a fuss

We had to sink the Bismark 'cause the world depends on us

We hit the decks a-runnin' and we spun those guns around

Yeah, we found the mighty Bismark and then we cut her down

We found that German battleship was makin' such a fuss

We had to sink the Bismark 'cause the world depends on us

We hit the decks a-runnin' and we spun those guns around

We found the mighty Bismark and then we cut her down

The Mob - No Doves Fly Here

The sky is empty and it's turning different shades of colour,

It never did before and we never asked for war.

My mind is empty and my body different shapes of torture,

It never was before and we never asked for war.

No-one is moving and no doves fly here,

No-one is thinking and no doves fly here,

No-one remembers beyond all this fear,

No doves fly here

The buildings are empty and the countryside is wasteland,

It never was before and we never asked for war.

The playgrounds are empty and the children limbless corpses,

They never were before and they never asked for war.

No-one is moving and no doves fly here,

No-one is thinking and no doves fly here,

No-one remembers beyond all this fear,

No doves fly here
