Pearl Jam - I Am Mine

04:27 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 590


The selfish they’re all standing in line,

Faithin' and hopin' to buy themselves time.

Me, I figure as each breath goes by,

I only own my mind.



The north is to south what the clock is to time.

There's east and there's west and there's everywhere lines.

I know that I was born and I know that I’ll die.

The in between is mine.

I am mine.



And the feeling gets left behind.

All the innocence, lost at one time.

Significant behind the eyes,

There's no need to hide.

We’re safe tonight.



The ocean is full cause everyone's crying,

The full moon is looking for friends at high tide.

The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrows denied.

I only know my mind.

I am mine.



And the meaning it gets left behind.

All the innocence, lost at one time.

Significant behind the eyes,

there's no need to hide.

We’re safe tonight.



And the feelings that get left behind.

Oh the innocence broken with lies.

Significant between the lines,

We may need to hide.



And the meanings that get left behind.

All the innocence, lost at one time.

We're different behind the eyes.

There's no need to hide.

Natalie Merchant - Ophelia

04:27 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 591


Ophelia was a bride of god

a novice Carmelite

in sister cells the cloister bells

tolled on her wedding night



Ophelia was the rebel girl

a blue stocking suffragette

who remedied society

between her cigarettes



and Ophelia was the sweetheart

to the nation over night

curvaceous thighs

vivacious eyes

love was at first sight...



Ophelia was a demigoddess

in pre-war Babylon

so statuesque a silhouette

in black satin evening gowns



Ophelia was the mistress to a

Vegas gambling man

Signora Ophelia Maraschina

Mafia courtesan



Ophelia was a circus queen

the female cannonball

projected through five flaming hoops

to wild and shocked applause...



Ophelia was a tempest, cyclone

a god damned hurricane

your common sense

your best defense

lay wasted and in vain



for Ophelia'd know your every woe

and pain you'd ever had

she'd sympathize

and dry your eyes

and help you to forget...



Ophelia's mind went wandering

you'd wonder where she'd gone

through secret doors

down corridors

she'd wander them alone

all alone

Ani DiFranco - Not a Pretty Girl

04:26 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 592


I am not a pretty girl

that is not what I do

I ain't no damsel in distess

and I don't need to be rescued

so put me down punk

maybe you'd prefer a maiden fair

isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere



I am not an angry girl

but it seems like I've got everyone fooled

every time I say something they find hard to hear

they chalk it up to my anger

and never to their own fear

and imagine you're a girl

just trying to finally come clean

knowing full well they'd prefer you

were dirty and smiling



I am sorry

I am not a maiden fair

and I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere



And generally my generation

wouldn't be caught dead working for the man

and generally I agree with them

trouble is you gotta have youself an alternate plan

and I have earned my disillusionment

I have been working all of my life

and I am a patriot

I have been fighting the good fight

and what if there are no damsels in distress

what if I knew that and I called your bluff?

don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down

whether or not you ever show up



I am not a pretty girl

I don't want to be a pretty girl

no I want to be more than a pretty girl

Poe - Angry Johnny

04:25 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 593


Johnny, Angry Johnny, this is Jezebel in Hell

I wanna kill you, I wanna blow you ... away



I can do it you gently

I can do it with an animal's grace

I can do it with precision

I can do it with gormet taste



But either way

Either, either way

I wanna kill you

I wanna blow you...

Away



I can do it to your mind

I can do it to your face

I can do it with integrity

I can do it with disgrace



But either way

Either way

I wanna kill you

I wanna blow you...

Away



Johnny, Angry Johnny, this is Jezebel in Hell



I can do it in a church

I can do it any time or place

I can do it like an angel

To quiet down your rage



But either way

Either, either way

I wanna kill you

I wanna blow you...

Away



I can do it in the water

I can do on dry land

I can do it with instruments

I can do it with my own bare hands



But either way

Either way, you know where it stands

I wanna kill you

I wanna blow you...

Away



Johnny, Angry Johnny, this is Jezebel in Hell

Johnny, oh my Johnny



Where did your pleasure go

When the pain came through you

Where did your happiness go

This force is running you around now

Getting you down now

Where is your pleasure now Johnny

Where has your pleasure gone now



Johnny, Angry Johnny...

Audioslave - Doesn't Remind Me

04:24 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 595


I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

With a graveyard tan carrying a cross

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like studying faces in a parking lot

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like driving backwards in the fog

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything



The things that I've loved, the things that I've lost

The things I've held sacred, that I've dropped

I won't lie no more you can bet

I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget



I like gypsy moths and radio talk

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like gospel music and canned applause

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like colorful clothing in the sun

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I ilke hammering nails and speaking in tongues

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything



The things that I've loved, the things that I've lost

The things I've held sacred, that I've dropped

I won't lie no more you can bet

I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget



Bend and shape me, I love the way you are

Slow and sweetly like never before

Calm and sleeping we won't stir up the past

So descretely we won't look back



The things that I've loved, the things that I've lost

The things I've held sacred, that I've dropped

I won't lie no more you can bet

I don't want to learn what I'll need



I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars

Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

I like playing in the sand, what's mine is ours

If it doesn't remind me of anything

Fiona Apple - Never is a Promise

04:23 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 596


You’ll never see the courage I know

Its colors richness won’t appear within your view

I’ll never glow - the way that you glow

Your presence dominates the judgements made on you



But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights

The shades and shadows undulate in my perception

My feelings swell and stretch; I see from greater heights

I understand what I am still too proud to mention - to you



You’ll say you understand, but you don’t understand

You’ll say you’d never give up seeing eye to eye

But never is a promise, and you can’t afford to lie



You’ll never touch - these things that I hold

The skin of my emotions lies beneath my own

You’ll never feel the heat of this soul

My fever burns me deeper than I’ve ever shown - to you



You’ll say, don’t fear your dreams, it’s easier than it seems

You’ll say you’d never let me fall from hopes so high

But never is a promise and you can’t afford to lie



You’ll never live this life that I live

I’ll never live the life that wakes me in the night

You’ll never hear the message I give

You’ll say it looks as though I might give up this fight



But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights

The shades and shadows undulate in my perception

My feelings swell and stretch, I see from greater heights

I realize what I am now too smart to mention - to you



You’ll say you understand, you’ll never understand

I’ll say I’ll never wake up knowing how or why

I don’t know what to believe in, you don’t know who I am

You’ll say I need appeasing when I start to cry

But never is a promise and I’ll never need a lie

REM - She Just wants to Be

04:22 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 597


It's not that she walked away

Her world got smaller

All the usual places

The same destinations

Only something's changed.



It's not that she wasn't rewarded

With pomegranate afternoons

And Mingus, Chet Baker and chess

It's not stampede and fortune

Of prim affectations

She's off on a riot

And she knows now

Is greater than the whole

Of the past

Is greater and now she knows



She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.



It's not that the transparency

Of her earlier incarnations

Now looked back on

We're rich and loaded

With beautiful vulnerability

But now she knows

Now is greater

And she knows that.



She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.



Now is greater

Now is greater

And she knows that.



She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.

She just wants to be somewhere

She just wants to be.



It's not like if angels

Could truly look down

Stir up the trappings

A light on the ground

Remind us of what, when, why or who

The how's up to us

Me and you

And now is greater than the whole

Of the past

Is greater and now she knows that.



Now she knows.

Rickie Lee Jones - For No One

04:22 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 598


Your day breaks your mind aches

You find that all the words of kindness linger on

When she no longer needs you



She wakes up she makes up

She takes her time and doesn't feel she has to hurry

She no longer needs you



And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years



You want her you need her

And yet you don't believe her when she says

her love is dead

You think she needs you



And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years



You stay home she goes out

She says that long ago she knew someone

but now he's gone

She doesn't need him



Your day breaks your mind aches

There will be time when all the things she said

will fill your head

You won't forget her



And in her eyes you see nothing

No sign of love behind the tears

Cried for no one

A love that should have lasted years

Ani DiFranco - So What

04:20 Dec 12 2005
Times Read: 599


Who's gonna give a shit

Who's gonna take the call

When you find out that the road ahead is painted on a wall

And you're turned up to top volume

And you're just sitting there in pause

With your feral little secret

Scratching at you with its claws

And you're trying hard to figure out

Just exactly how you feel

Before you end up parked and sobbing

Forehead on the steering wheel



Who are you now

And who were you then

That you thought somehow

You could just pretend

That you could figure it all out

The mathematics of regret

So it takes two beers to remember now

And five to forget

That I loved you so

Yeah, I loved you, so what



How many times undone

Can one person be

As they're careening through the facade

Of their favorite fantasy

You just close your eyes slowly

Like you're waiting for a kiss

And hope some lowly little power

Will pull you out of this

But none comes at first

And little comes at all

And when inspiration finally hits you

It barely even breaks your fall



Who were you then

And who are you

Now that you can pretend

That it'll all work out

Subtract out the impact

And the fall is all you get

So here's two beers to remember why

And three more to forget

That I loved you so

Yeah, I loved you, so what

I loved you

So what
