I'm fishing in my boat and I'm fishing for trout
mix the Bass Ale with the Guiness Stout
fishing for a line inside my brain
and looking out at the world through my window pane

Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers

Oh I beg you, can I follow
Oh I ask you why not always
Be the ocean where unravel
Be my only, be the water and I'm wading
You're my river running high, run deep run wild

I I follow, I follow you deep sea baby
I I follow, I follow you, dark boom honey

I hope your Hell is filled with magazines / /And on every page you see a big picture of me / And under every picture the caption should read / "Not bad for a girl, from the gutter like me."

I fear that I am ordinary, just like everyone
To lie here and die among the sorrows
Adrift among the days
For everything I ever said
And everything I've ever done is gone and dead
As all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
I know that I am meant for this world

My life has been extraordinary
Blessed and cursed and won
Time heals but I'm forever broken
By and by the way...
Have you ever heard the words
I'm singing in these songs?
It's for the girl I've loved all along
Can a taste of love be so wrong?
As all things must surely have to end
And great loves will one day have to part
I know that I am meant for this world

And in my mind as I was floating
Far above the clouds
Some children laughed I'd fall for certain
For thinking that I'd live
Forever

But I knew exactly where I was
And I knew the meaning of it all
And I knew the distance to the sun
And I knew the echo that is love
And I knew the secrets in your spires
And I knew the emptiness of youth
And I knew the solitude of hearts
And I knew the murmurs of the soul

And the world is drawn into your hands
And the world is etched upon your heart
And the world so hard to understand
Is the world your can't live without

And I knew the silence of the world

Angels on the sideline,
Puzzled and amused.
Why did Father give these humans free will?
Now they're all confused.

Don't these talking monkeys know that Eden has enough to go around?
Plenty in this holy garden, silly monkeys
Where there's one you're bound to divide it right in two.

Angels on the sideline,
Baffled and confused.
Father blessed them all with reason,
And this is what they choose?

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys.
Give them thumbs, they forge a blade,
And where there's one they're bound to divide it right in two.

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys.
Give them thumbs, they make a club to beat their brother down.
How they've survived so misguided is a mystery.
Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
To lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.

Gotta divide it all right in two.

Fight till they die over sun, over sky,
They fight till they die over sea, over air,
They fight till they die over blood, over love,
They fight till they die over words, polarizing.

Angels on the sideline again,
Benched along with patience and reason.
Angels on the sideline again,
Wondering where this tug of war will end.

Gotta divide it all right in two.

"Starz"

Born of love and cast in light
Don't you know we cannot die

We are stars
We are
We are stars
We are
We are stars
We are

The stars above, stars of grace
Shining down what's left of face

You hurt so bad
This knowing, this fallacy
I want so much
To follow as I lead

For love I keep
Silent I weep
Dead suns rule dead air
But heaven is everywhere
Stars...

Torn from god and flung towards night
Don't you want what I can't fight

We are stars
We are
We are stars
We are
We are stars
We are

The stars that shine, stars that bleed
Silver seeking destiny
So follow please

This hurts so much
This knowing carries me
We want so bad
We forget we are free

Spirit smile on
Deep black diamond
So rise the lost toys
Island of white noise
And purple haze

We are stars
We are stars
We are stars

What hurts so much
Is knowing we are free

The wolf he howls, howls up at the moon,
out on the steps beneath my hotel room.
Was in the woods behind this little town
we went flying up through the silhouette trees,
then crashing down. Colours brighter than I've ever seen,
More wired than I've ever been - and the faces turn to stone . . .
On through the gates again - what a wonderful way to go . . .
What a wonderful way to go.

Tell me your story, tell me no lies;
we touch each other - but only with our eyes.
Some kind of game, to play with desire;
it's just beneath the skin that I'm alive.
Colours brighter than I've ever seen - more wired than I've ever been
And the faces turn to stone - on through the gates again;
what a wonderful way to go - what a wonderful way to go.

Tonight the moon, she lays a silver path across the blackened sea,
I'm swimming out against the tide, the waves are breaking over me;
and deep beneath the waters in the darkness I can hear her
as she calls for me to come. . .

The wolf he howls, howls up at the moon;
some day coming - some day soon
Onto his shoulder, to carry me home;
flying up through the silhouette trees and we'll be gone
Colours brighter than I've ever seen - more wired than I've ever been;
And all the faces turn to stone - on through the gates again . . .
What a wonderful way to go - what a wonderful way to go . . .

This storm is beautiful
It breaks the breakable
It blows unstoppable
They had claimed victory
They look so stupid now
It's ashes in their mouths

There are new soft people
For the new soft winters
But they cannot touch us
I was taught not to cry
I do not need to cry
I can hold myself inside

So today is a good day
Today is a good day

We love to dress to kill
They gave us uniforms
They say they suit us well
But these rules are not agreed
They're only sophistry
They don't apply to me

So today is a good day
Today is a good day

And the birds of prey love September
Flying like the harbingers of the winter
Swooping down through the azure perfect sky

We're drifting weightless
(We push our trolleys down)
Through the aisles of the Superstore
Like a couple of Stepford Wives
This joke is on us all
We all are laughable
We became what we despise

So today is a good day
Today is a good day

I've heard all I need to know
Your voicing ****ing echoes, stereo
Well this particular scenario
Looks like another all time low
Why did you go and let them in
See this is where the fun begins
You barely even pierce the skin
Just wait 'til you see what is coming

Get down on the floor
Shut the goddamn door
You've done this all before
You're coming back for more

[Chorus]
So give me just a little, baby
Just something to get by
It's gonna last forever, baby
Hit the other side
And we will live forever, baby
And stretch across the sky
I'll follow right behind you, baby
We're never gonna die

Hey, everything is not okay
We lost too much along the way
The pasengers arrived today
It looks like they are here to stay
This paranoia turns to fear
Theres too much whispering in your ear
Pretending that I know you're here
How'd I fucking end up here

[Chorus]

We're never gonna die
How did we get so high

Stretch across the sky
Stretch across the sky

They came marchin' down the street in robes,
In the spirit of Spanish Inquisition.
Guitars and trombones,
Mechanical monkeys make good musicians.

Streets urchins, the smugglers and dingos,
dead langauges and living man lingos.
Put the relics of the saint in a glass box and march him around the block.

Hangin' on the words of a madman,
Islands in the abyss,
No use for the poet,
when the hopeless seek no bliss.

Mason jars of petroleum,
You know those kids don't play,
And should you ever get a hold of them,
I'll tell you exactly what they say:
"Time we told you son about the family curse"
And when they opened up the diary
to gain an explanation,
They find only terminal verse.

Hangin' on the words of a madman,
Islands in the abyss,
No use for the poet,
when the hopeless seek no bliss.

X-ray visions,
Eye in the sky,
the naked being led by the blind
So Bottoms up, Socrates.
Hemlock straight up
Goes down easy

Hangin' on the words of a madman,
Islands in the abyss,
No use for the poet,
when the hopeless seek no bliss.

X-ray visions,
Eye in the sky,
the naked being led by the blind
So Bottoms up, Socrates.
Hemlock tastes like ripple wine

X-ray visions,
Eye in the sky,
the naked being led by the blind
So Bottoms up, Socrates.
Hemlock straight up
Goes down easy

Boats (Swept Away) Lyrics (by I Am Not Lefthanded)

Make a wish on whispered stars
For a road and faster car.
And wait, see if it comes true

For a house on distant streets
Dream of nights in softer sheets
This beach, will wait

So I know you're tired,
So leave it to the tide,
And at next light,
When weather's right,
Come sailing home

Let the dark subside,
Just leave it to one side,
I'm on your side,
When weather's right,
Come sailing home again

Walk the land and see the shore
Think of less and want for more
And wait, to keep the grey from blue

In a house on distant streets
Someone dreams a distant beach
And waits, they wait

So I know you're tired,
So leave it to the tide,
And at next light,
When weather's right,
Come sailing home

Let the dark subside,
Just leave it to one side,
I'm on your side,
When weather's right,

You'll see it swept away
You'll see it swept away

.....and here's a brilliant little movie by Giorgio Oppici using "Boats" as background...think about the "protected species" at the end of the movie.

Some great lyrics from "Ones and Zeros"
From Mr. Jack Hody Johnson's latest album, From Here To Now To You

imgres.jpg

And all the greatest of the heroes started jumping from the books
They started wearing ones and zeros
Looking more and more like crooks
They stole the sunlight from the future
Took a sip, drained half the glass, and put it back

And a lot of people like to have a feast
Not so many could stomach the killing
Lot of traffic on the streets, so who's really doing all the drilling
Keep on filling what can never be full
My imagination has got a hold on me

Bill Chase - Hades

Cross the river to me, but pay your price
To the boatman pay an obolus twice
Else he'll leave you there to wander and roam
On the shores of hell all alone
Accept your fate

A three headed dog keeps my home for me
With a mournful cry and a laughing hate
He'll let you in but you can't escape
You're mine now, so relax
Accept your fate

My house is filled with the blood of sheep
Earthly treasures while here you'll keep
From room to room are the shades of dead
Woe and misery are what you're fed
Accept your fate

Have you met my wife Persephone?
Who I raped and brought here with me?
Together we'll rule the souls of the dead
The life you lived is a shadowy light
But does it really matter in eternal night?
Have you heard all the evil things about me?
Do you think they're true? Come here and see
You'll get what you deserve
You'll have to pay the price
You'll get what you deserve
You bet it won't be nice
You've gone to hell
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
I said the gates are closed
And I put my staff to rest

A bit on the dark side, a friend started a discussion on Slayer and I couldn't help but recall my favorite lyrics of their's:

My sinful glare at nothing holds thoughts of death behind it
Skeletons in my mind commence tearing at my sanity
Vessels in my brain carry death until my birth
Come and die with me forever
Share insanity

Do you want to die?

The waves of blood are rushing near, pounding at the walls of lies
Turning off my sanity, reaching back into my mind
Non-rising body from the grave showing new reality
What I am, what I want, I'm only after death
