"Little Yellow Spider" - Devendra Banhart

Little yellow spider, laughing at the snow

Ah, maybe that spider knows something that I don't know

'Cause I'm goddamn cold

Little white monkey, staring at the sand

Well, maybe that monkey figured out something I couldn't understand

Who knows?

Well, I came upon a dancing crab, and I stopped to watch it shake

I said, "Dance for me just one more time

Before you hibernate and you come out a crab cake"

Hey there, little snapping turtle, snapping at a shell

Ah, there's mysteries inside, I know

But what they are I just can't tell for sure

And hey ya, little baby crow, you're looking kinda mean

I think I outta spit before you start letting off your steam

For sure

And hey there, little sexy pig, you made it with a man

And now you've got a little kid with hooves instead of hands

And oh, all the animals

All the animals

And hey there, little mockingbird, they sing about you in songs

Ah, where you been? Have you broke a wing?

I haven't heard you in so long

And hey there, little albatross, swimming in the air

Ah c'mon, you know I can't fly

And I, I think we really outta play fair

And hey there, Mr. happy squid, you move so psychadelically

You hypnotize with your magic dance all the animals in the sea

For sure

And oh, all the animals

All the animals

And hey there, Mr. morning sun, what kind of creature are you?

I can't stare, but I know you're there

Goddamn, how I wish I knew

And hey there, Mrs. lovely moon, you're lonely and you're blue

It's kinda strange, the way you change

But then again, we all do too

[big]Don't Pass Me By[/big] -- The Beatles

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [smaller]Writer[/smaller] Ringo Starr

I listen for your foot steps

Coming up the drive

Listen for you foot steps

But they don't arrive

Waiting for you knock, dear

on my old front door

I don't hear it

Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

I hear the clock a-ticking

on the mantel shelf

See the hands a-moving

But I'm by myself

I wonder where you are tonight

And why I'm by myself

I don't see you

Does it mean you don't love me anymore?

Don't pass me by

Don't make me cry

Don't make me blue

Cos you know, darling, I love only you

You'll never know it hurt me so

How I hate to see you go

Don't pass my by

Don't make me cry

I'm sorry that I doubted you

I was so unfair

You were in a car crash

And you lost you hair

You said that you would be late

About and hour or two

I said that's all right

I'm waiting here just waiting to hear from you

Don't pass me by

Don't make me cry

Don't make me blue

Cos you know, darling, I love only you

You'll never know it hurt me so

How I hate to see you go

Don't pass my by

Don't make me cry

Don't pass me by

Don't make me cry

Don't make me blue

Cos you know, darling, I love only you

You'll never know it hurt me so

How I hate to see you go

Don't pass my by

Don't make me cry

Galaxie - Blind Melon

Is this the place that I want to be

Is it you who I want to see

Holdin' on, hold it high, show me everything

And you're leavin' me, yeah you're leavin' me

you're leaving me with a hated identity

But I keep only comin' here and standing in this place

Oh and I'm never really sure if you'll take what I'm saying the right way

But I'm not appalled or afraid verbal pocket play

Is as discreet as I can muster up to be

Because the Cadillac that's sittin' in the back

It isn't me

Oh, no, no, no it isn't me

I'm more at home in my galaxie Oh Yeah

Can I do the things I wanna do

That I don't do because of you

And I'll take a left and I'll second

guess into total mess

And you're leaving me

Yeah you're leaving me

you're leaving me with a hated identity

But I keep on a comin' here and standing in this state

Oh and I'm always reassured the situation's gettin' carried away

But I'm not appalled or afraid verbal pocket play

Is as discreet as I can muster up to be

Because the Cadillac that's sittin' in the back

It isn't me

No no no no it isn't me

Woah no no no it isn't me

No it isn't me

No it isn't me

No it isn't me

Woah no it isn't me

No it isn't me

in my galaxie

Elusive Buttlerfly-Bob Lind

You might wake up some mornin'

To the sound of something moving past your window in the wind

And if you're quick enough to rise

You'll catch a fleeting glimpse of someone's fading shadow

Out on the new horizon

You may see the floating motion of a distant pair of wings

And if the sleep has left your ears

You might hear footsteps running through an open meadow

Don't be concerned, it will not harm you

It's only me pursuing somethin' I'm not sure of

Across my dreams with nets of wonder

I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

You might have heard my footsteps

Echo softly in the distance through the canyons of your mind

I might have even called your name

As I ran searching after something to believe in

You might have seen me runnin'

Through the long-abandoned ruins of the dreams you left behind

If you remember something there

That glided past you followed close by heavy breathin'

Don't be concerned, it will not harm you

It's only me pursuing somethin' I'm not sure of

Across my dreams with nets of wonder

I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

[instrumental Interlude]

Across my dreams with nets of wonder

I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

Black Hole Sun- Soundgarden

In my eyes, indisposed

In disguise as no one knows

Hides the face, lies the snake

in The sun in my disgrace

Boiling heat, summer stench

'Neath the black the sky looks dead

Call my name through the cream

And I'll hear you scream again

Black hole sun

Won't you come

And wash away the rain

Black hole sun

Won't you come

Won't you come

Won't you come

Stuttering, cold and damp

Steal the warm wind tired friend

Times are gone for honest men

And sometimes far too long for snakes

In my shoes, a walking sleep

And my youth I pray to keep

Heaven send Hell away

No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun

Won't you come

And wash away the rain

Black hole sun

Won't you come

Won't you come

Won't you come

Black hole sun

Won't you come

And wash away the rain

Black hole sun

Won't you come

Won't you come

Won't you come

Hang my head, drown my fear

Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun

Won't you come

And wash away the rain

Black hole sun

Won't you come

Won't you come

Won't you come

Teddy Picker ~ Arctic Monkeys

Despair up to the point where they provoke

The punchline before they have told the joke,

Can see your desperation to be seen,

Staring at the television screen.

Despair up to the point where they provoke

You to tell the f***ing punchline before you have told the joke.

Sorry sunshine, it doesn't exist,

It wasn't in the top 100 list.

And it's the thousandth time and it's even bolder,

Don't be surprised when you get bent over,

They told ya, but you were dying for it.

She saw it and she grabbed it and it wasn't what it seemed,

The kids all dream of "making it", whatever that means.

Another variation on a theme,

A tangle on the television and the magazine.

D'you reckon that they do it for a joke?

D'you reckon that they make 'em take an oath?

That says "We are defenders

Of any poseur or professional pretender around."

When did your list replace the twist and turn?

And the fist, replace the kiss?

Don't concern us with your bollocks, I don't want your prayers,

Save it for the morning after.

And it's the thousandth time and it's even bolder,

Don't be surprised when you get bent over,

He told ya, that you were gagging for it.

Let's have a game on the Teddy Picker,

Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?

Already thick and you're getting thicker.

Let's have a game on the Teddy Picker,

Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?

Already thick and you're getting thicker.

Presuming that all things are equal,

Who'd want to be men of the people...

When there's people like you?

"The Story So Far" - Flogging Molly

You always had what you wanted

So leave it behind

And if the glass isn't broken

Then the futures not blind

All that you know means nothing to you

But its the loss of control shatters the truth

Here's the story so far

It's already here

We've made it this far

Sure we battled the spears

But life cuts to pieces

To the wounds from the secrets

Makes it all who you are

Love craves self destruction

It's a blizzard in hand

Lay your cards ion the table

But you're not in command

So burn with the fire

You so eagerly lit

Watch the flames flicker higher

Said I don't care about you

Here's the story so far

It's already here

We've made it this far

Sure we battled the spears

But life cuts to pieces

To the wounds from the secrets

Makes it all who you are

Oh it's bitter the pill

That you swallow to feel

I don't care what I lost

I just thank god I'm alive

Makes it all who you are [x5]

Lazybones - Soul Coughing

When all the limbs are numb and clean,

and you're in transit, dream to dream,

I'll drift there to meet you, lazybones.

When all the world has lain and sank,

and money sleeps inside the banks,

I'll drift there to meet you, layzbones.

Cameraman sways to remember how the eye dances,

drunkenness is a hand-held

scrambling down Delancey

I come stumbling;

well I hear you had to take a shine

and firing at random, I hear the rays fell upon mine.

Cool you, Miss Amaze, with a handful of water

trucks encircling, bearing down, coming louder.

If I could stay here, under your idle caress

and not exit to the world and phoniness and people.

When all the noise has left your head

will someday you rise off the bed?

I'll be there to lift you, lazybones.

I'd like to dedicate this to all the hypochondriacs in this world.

Doctor Doctor -- The Who

Doctor, there's something wrong with me

My health is not all that it used to be

My heart is out of beat, I got chokers on my feet

My eyesight's getting dimmer, I can't see

Doctor thanks for seeing me today, I'm glad,

I've got every sickness there is to be had

I had whooping cough last month

And today I've got the mumps

And tomorrow I'll catch chicken pox as well

Doctor doctor doctor make me well

I've not got long to go now I can tell

Doctor doctor doctor make me well

I've not got long to go I can tell

I've not got long to go I can tell

Those pills I took have no effect at all

Just the other day I had a nasty fall

And I think I broke my jaw when it hit the kitchen floor

And I'm shrinking last week I was five foot four

I've been getting shivers lately, is it flu?

I know the bug is going round, what can I do?

It's bound to pick on me, I've still got the other three

Do you think I caught smallpox I'd get flu?

Doctor doctor doctor make me well

I've not got long to go now I can tell

Doctor doctor doctor make me well

I've not got long to go I can tell

I've not got long to go I can tell

Do you think it's time that I made out my will?

I'll leave everything to you to pay my bill

Just how long is there to go

Please tell me I want to know

But on second thoughts don't tell me, I'm too ill

Les Yeux de ma Mère - Arno

Ma mère elle a quelque chose

Quelque chose dangereuse

Quelque chose d'une allumeuse

Quelque chose d'une emmerdeuse

Elle a des yeux qui tuent

Mais j'aime ses mains sur mon corps

J'aime l'odeur au-dessous de ses bras

Oui je suis comme ça

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

L'amour je trouve ça toujours

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

Ma mère elle m'écoute toujours

Quand je suis dans la merde

Elle sait quand je suis con et faible

Et quand je suis bourré comme une baleine

C'est elle qui sait que mes pieds puent

C'est elle qui sait comment j'suis nu

Mais quand je suis malade

Elle est la reine du suppositoire

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

L'amour je trouve ça toujours

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

Ma mère a quelque chose

Quelque chose dangereuse

Quelque chose d'une allumeuse

Quelque chose d'une emmerdeuse

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Il y a toujours une lumière

Dans les yeux de ma mère

Girlfriend in a Coma-The Smiths

Girlfriend in a coma, I know

I know - it's serious

Girlfriend in a coma, I know

I know - it's really serious

There were times when I could

Have "murdered" her

(But you know, I would hate

Anything to happen to her)

NO, I DON'T WANT TO SEE HER

Do you really think

She'll pull through ?

Do you really think

She'll pull through ?

Do ...

Girlfriend in a coma, I know

I know - it's serious

My, my, my, my, my, my baby, goodbye

There were times when I could

Have "strangled" her

(But you know, I would hate

Anything to happen to her)

WOULD YOU PLEASE

LET ME SEE HER !

Do you really think

She'll pull through ?

Do you really think

She'll pull through ?

Do ...

Let me whisper my last goodbyes

I know - IT'S SERIOUS

Suck and Run ~ Console

maybe you missed a word

maybe you missed my dirt

maybe you're a dog or maybe you're a god

maybe you missed to call tonight

maybe i missed the end

maybe i missed my friend

maybe the sun or maybe the moon

maybe i missed the afternoon

But i don't miss you tonight

that isn't meant to p*ss you off one more time

maybe you take my hand

i try to do what i can

i try not to cry i try not to run...

i try not to wish it all(under/on them?)

maybe my thought is wrong

maybe we are just as strong

maybe i kill the life that i spill?

maybe this was a rescue trip

But i don't miss you tonight

that isn't meant to p*ss you off one more time

but that does not mean that you don't mean a thing to me

but thats the only way i finally succeed

in being me

i don't miss you tonight

that isn't meant to p*ss you off one more time

but that does not mean that you don't mean a thing to me

but thats the only way i finally succeed

Daisies of the Galaxy ~ Eels

Take heart my little friend

And push back your seat

Soon we'll be far away

Far from the street

Where you learned how to be

Not what you are

Up on the shoulder

There is a town

With a little motel

And an old movie house

We'll go to a movie

Whatever it is

Whatching the movie

The world's gonna end

And there ain't no place for

A boy and his friends

to go

I'll pick some daisies

From the flower bed

Of the galaxy theater

While you clear your head

I thought some daisies

Might cheer you up...

Hard Times

Run DMC

Hard times spreading just like the flu

Watch out homeboy, don't let it catch you

P-p-prices go up, don't let your pocket go down

When you got short money you're stuck on the ground

Turn around, get ready, keep your eye on the prize

And be on point for the future shock

Hard times (repeat 2x)

Hard times are coming to your town

So stay alert, don't let them get you down

They tell you times are tough, you hear that times are hard

But when you work for that ace you know you pulled the right card

Hard times got our pockets all in chains

I'll tell you what, homeboy, it don't have my brain

All day I have to work at my peak

Beacuse I need that dollar every day of the weak

Hard times

Hard times can take you on a natural trip

So keep your balance, and don't you slip

Hard times is nothing new on me

I'm gonna use my strong mentality

Like the cream of the crop, like the crop of the cream

B-b-beating hard times, that is my theme

Hard times in life, hard times in death

I'm gonna keep on fighting to my very last breath

Hard times (repeat 6x)

Kill for peace (and peace will die) - The Blackbox Revelation

nothing ever really scared me

but now I'm really scared of war

you should love or you should die

a million people killed by war

no one ever really loved it

but this time it has gone too far

you should never join the army

a million soldiers killed by war

you wanna live you wanna die

join the army get killed by war

you wanna be someone in life

don't get killed by the train of war

nananananananana

nananananananana

from now on you are to be happy

every single second time

don't wanna be a freedom soldier

kill for peace and peace will die

England Made Me - Black Box Recorder

I trapped a spider underneath the glass

I kept it for a week to see how long he lasted

He stared right back of me

He thought that he could win

We played the waiting game

He thought that I give in

England made me

England made me

I had a dream last night, that I was drunk

I killed the stranger, and left him in a trunk

In Brighton railway station

It was an unsolved case

A famous murder mystery

People love mystery

England made me

England made me

England made me

England made me

I need my privacy, I lead a secret life

Sleep with the enemy, and betray both sides

I travelled all my life, but never got away

From the killing jar, and it got me sick

England made me

England made me

England made me

England made me

England made me

England made me

England made me

THE SEA REFUSES NO RIVER - PETE TOWNSHEND

I remember being richer than a king

The minutes of the day were golden

I recall that when the joint passed around

My body felt a little colder

But now I'm like a sewer channel - running lime and scag

Let me get at the master panel - let me at my stack

The sea refuses no river

And right now this river's banks are blown

The sea refuses no river

Whether stinking and rank

Or red from the tank

Whether pure as a spring

There's no damn thing stops the poem

The sea refuses no river

And this river is homeward flowing

I have seen a trace of strain

In other's eyes, not spoken.

I must admit that I enjoyed their pain

But this time it's me that's broken

I demand for you and His

This must be the time

When we decide what freedom is

Turn water into wine

For the sea refuses no river

We're polluted now but in our hearts still clean

The sea refuses no river

We tried not to age

But time had it's rage

We're washed over the stones

From babies into clones of the mean

The sea won't refuse this muddy river

Nor deny the sulphurous stream

There was a fool in a dressing robe

Riding out the twilight hour

Lonely and cold in an empty home

Trying to assess his power

But now he's like a stream in flood

Swollen by the storm

He doesn't care if he sheds his blood

Let him be reborn

For the sea refuses no river

Remember that when the beggar buys a round

The sea refuses no river

And rain fills the gutters

No time for stutters

This is our chance

To sing and dance and to clown

The sea refuses no river

And rivers were sprung to drown

The sea refuses no river

No pecking code respected for the damned

The sea refuses no river

Whether starving and ill

Or strung on some pill

Just 'cos you own the land

There's no unique hand plugs the dam

The sea refuses no river

And the river is where I am

The river is where I am

Flagpole Sitta ~ Harvey Danger

I had visions I was in them

I was looking into the mirror

To see a little bit clearer

The rotteness and evil in me

Fingertips have memories

Mine can't forget the curves of your body

And when I feel a bit naughty

I run it up the flagpole and see who salutes

(But no one ever does)

I'm not sick, but I'm not well

And I'm so hot, cause I'm in hell

Been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding

The cretins cloning and feeding

And I don't even own a TV

Put me in the hospital for nerves

And then they had to commit me

You told them all I was crazy

They cut off my legs now I'm an amputee god damn you

I'm not sick but I'm not well

And I'm so hot, cause I'm in hell

I'm not sick but I'm not well

And it's a sin to live so well

I wanna publish zines

And rage against machines

I wanna pierce my toungue

It doesn't hurt it feels fine

The trivial sublime

I'd like to turn off time

And kill my mind

And kill my mind

Paranoia, paranoia, everybody's coming to get me

Just say you never met me

I'm runnin' underground with the moles, diggin holes

Hear the voices in my head

I swear to god it sounds like they're snoring

But if you're bored then you're boring

The agony and the irony are killing me, whoa

I'm not sick, but I'm not well

And I'm so hot, cause I'm in hell

I'm not sick, but I'm not well

And it's a sin to live this well
