    The warden threw a party in the county jail.
    The prison band was there and they began to wail.
    The band was jumpin and the joint began to swing.
    You shouldve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.

    I Burn Today ~ Frank Black

    (I'm totally in love with this song right now)

    I knew a girl
    with sad blue eyes
    put out the feast
    I lost my psychic prize
    I did forget
    what the tarot maid did say
    I burn today
    I burn today
    our house was filled
    with many birds
    she said to me I can understand their words
    the land will shake, so run away

    (chorus)
    I burn today
    I burn today
    yesterday I will burn
    for the times
    I did not learn

    she said have fun
    its time has come
    hold my heart strings
    and have yourself a strum
    no, nevermore
    this song will we play
    I burn today eh
    I burn today
    and as I drank
    in old Paris
    she lay her cards
    just to see what she would see
    down by the water you'll find your happy days

    (chorus)

    I ran so fast
    into the north
    no snow on me
    and so he said thenceforth,
    I let snow fall
    on frozen yesterday
    I burn today
    I burn today
    and if my head
    is hanging down
    I feel her arms
    and her legs are all around
    and we make love
    beside the waterway

    (chorus)

    behold the rose
    of Jericho
    how many lives
    I really do not know
    though with the rain
    I know it will return
    today I burn
    today I burn
    "If you weren't smart enough to get a pedophile in a dress to put a small amount of water on your child’s head, then what the eff did you think was going to happen?

    inside of me today
    there is no one
    only asteroids and empty space
    a waste

    ...they're looking through the windows at me...

    get me out of this air-conditioned nightmare
    rots your brain just like a catchy tune, yeah
    you will hate life more than life hates you

    happiness is your illness in an air-conditioned nightmare

    ...burn all your mementos of me...

    walkin' on air
    up from the wheelchair
    i'll find the suicide
    that i deserve

    walkin' on sand
    forgotten where i am
    but it's so comfortable
    here in the sun...

    i only see rainbows
    now that the bandages are gone
    through my window, there

    from the skyscrapers
    down to the submarines

    birds and fairies
    sanctuaries
    atop the rolling hills of hell

    these words are sledgehammers
    of truth
    that pound the iron heart
    of sin

    bloody smiling
    vandalizing
    my wet dream is drying up...

    where's my rainbow?
    where's my halo?

    there's my halo!


    the air-conditioned nightmare - mr bungle

    Thank You, You're the Sister of my Soul
    Jan Verner

    I woke up this morning
    remembering your name
    was flickering on the screen
    in my dream

    There was something I forgot to tell you
    after all what we've been through
    and after all what we've seen

    We take so much for granted
    and forget aobut all the little simple things
    in between

    Thank you, 'cause you
    are the sister of my soul
    and I will never let you down.

    You keep me going
    You keep me singing
    You keep me dancing
    On the silver-screen of my soul

    You keep me laughing
    You keep me smiling and crying
    You keep me doing what I was supposed to do

    I never took you for granted
    Never expected you to be someone else
    Still I don't want to lose you
    Thank you girl, 'cause you're
    the sister of my soul
    and I will never, ever let you down

    You're so connected to the world
    You'r so connected to your heart
    You're so connected to life
    and I say
    It's you and your generation
    Who's gonna turn this messed up world into something new
    say it again,
    it's you and your generation who's gonna turn this world into something new.

    Thank you girl,
    You're the sister of my soul,

    Do you, do you, do you, do you
    Do you want to dance tonight
    Man and Woman Man and Woman's gonna make it right
    Man and Woman Man and Woman's gonna make it right

    You know, I'm gonna die tonight
    I'm gonna fly away to a place
    Where there's only peace and calm
    But tomorrow I wake up again
    Still I'll have the image of your face
    Like a firefly on my mind
    'cause you light up the corners
    you keep me hoping and thinking
    there's a silver lining to every cloud
    I'm saying thank you girl,
    you know,
    you're the sister of my soul
    and I will never let you down.

    Deep Blue, by George Harrison

    When sunshine is not enough
    To make me feel bright
    It's got me suffering in the darkness
    That's so easy come by on the road-side
    Of one loong life-time

    It's got me deep blue
    You know I'm deep blue

    When you stand there, watch tired bodies
    Full of sickness and pain
    To show you just how helpless you really are
    When you get down to the truth
    It hurts me

    It's got me deep blue
    You know I'm deep blue

    When I think of the life I'm living
    Pray God help me; give me your light
    So I can love you and understand
    This repetition that keeps me here
    Feeling deep blue

    It's got me deep blue
    You know I'm deep blue

    Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again (From Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera"). They have very special meaning for me.

    You were once
    my one companion . . .
    you were all
    that mattered . . .
    You were once
    a friend and father -
    then my world
    was shattered . . .

    Wishing you were
    somehow here again . . .
    wishing you were
    somehow near . . .
    Sometimes it seemed
    if I just dreamed,
    somehow you would
    be here . . .

    Wishing I could
    hear your voice again . . .
    knowing that I
    never would . . .
    Dreaming of you
    won't help me to do
    all that you dreamed
    I could . . .

    Passing bells
    and sculpted angels,
    cold and monumental,
    seem, for you,
    the wrong companions -
    you were warm and gentle . . .

    Too many years
    fighting back tears . . .
    Why can't the past
    just die . . .?

    Wishing you were
    somehow here again . . .
    knowing we must
    say goodbye . . .
    Try to forgive . . .
    teach me to live . . .
    give me the strength
    to try . . .

    No more memories,
    no more silent tears . . .
    No more gazing across
    the wasted years . . .
    Help me say
    goodbye.

    Wish I may
    Wish I might
    Have this I wish tonight
    Are you satisfied?
    Dig for gold
    Dig for fame
    You dig to make your name
    Are you pacified?

    All the wants you waste
    All the things you've chased

    Then it all crashes down
    And you break your crown
    And you point your finger
    But there's no one around

    Just want one thing
    Just to play the king
    But the castle's crumbled
    And you're left with just a name

    Where's your crown, King Nothing?
    Where's your crown?

    Hot and cold
    Bought and Sold
    A heart as hard as gold
    Yeah! Are you satisfied?

    Wish I might
    Wish I may
    You wish your life away
    Are you pacified?

    All the wants you waste
    All the things you chased

    Then it all crashes down
    And you break your crown
    And you point your finger
    But there's no one around

    Just want one thing
    Just to play the king
    But the castle's crumbled
    And you're left with just a name

    Where's your crown, King Nothing?
    Oh, where's your crown?

    I wish I may
    I wish I might
    Have this wish I wish tonight
    I want that star
    I want it now
    I want it all and I don't care how

    Careful what you wish
    Careful what you say
    Careful what you wish
    You may regret it
    Careful what you wish
    You just might get it

    Agitata Infido Flatu, by Antonio Vivaldi

    Weapons, slaughters, vengances, furies,
    Straits, fears,
    Go before us;
    Turn,
    Fight,
    O warlike fates;
    A thousand plagues,
    A thousand deaths,
    Bring them, you!



    Driven by the faithless blast,
    Long in wandering
    Flight,
    The sad swallow
    Goes in grief,
    Ignorant of good.
    But with a breath of serene air
    Quickly forgetful of such pain,
    In the beloved
    Sweet shelter
    She laughs, no longer thirsting for joy.

    But hey, here's one that isn't:

    Tool -- "The Patient"

    A groan of tedium escapes me, startling the fearful.
    Is this a test?
    It has to be. Otherwise I can't go on.
    Draining patience. Drain vitality.
    This paranoid, paralyzed vampire act's a little old.

    But I'm still right here, giving blood and keeping faith.
    And I'm still right here.
    But I'm still right here, giving blood and keeping faith.
    And I'm still right here.

    I'm gonna wait it out.

    If there were no rewards to reap,
    No loving embrace to see me through this tedious path I've chosen here,
    I certainly would've walked away by now.

    I'm gonna wait it out.

    If there were no desire to heal
    The damaged and broken met along this tedious path I've chosen here,
    I certainly would've walked away by now.

    I still may.
    And I still may.
    Be patient.

    I must keep reminding myself of this...

    If there were no rewards to reap,
    No loving embrace to see me through this tedious path I've chosen here,
    I certainly would've walked away by now.

    And I still may.
    And I still may.
    And I still may.

    I'm gonna wait it out.
    I'm gonna wait it out.
    Gonna wait it out.
    Gonna wait it out.
    Ooh, I'm a TOOL fan too. I think them just as strong lyrically as musically (which usually gets all the plaudits). I remember a particular excerpt from their song 'Eulogy':

    Standing above the crowd,
    He had a voice that was strong and loud and I
    Swallowed his façade cuz I'm so
    Eager to identify with
    Someone above the crowd,
    Someone who seemed to feel the same,
    Someone prepared to lead the way, and
    Someone who would die for me.


    The singer is a great lyricist. I also think Bob Dylan's lyrics (poetry) is incredible.

    Jeff Buckley is a favourite of mine and most of his lyrics are great, I'm gonna post two of my favourite....

    "Last Goodbye"

    This is our last goodbye
    I hate to feel the love between us die
    But it's over
    Just hear this and then i'll go
    You gave me more to live for
    More than you'll ever know

    This is our last embrace
    Must I dream and always see your face
    Why can't we overcome this wall
    Well, maybe it's just because i didn't know you at all

    Kiss me, please kiss me
    But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation
    You know it makes me so angry 'cause i know that in time
    I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye

    Did you say 'no, this can't happen to me,'
    And did you rush to the phone to call
    Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind
    Saying maybe you didn't know him at all
    You didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know

    Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
    Burning clues into this heart of mine
    Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memories
    Offer signs that it's over... it's over



    "Moodswing Whiskey"

    Mood swing whiskey
    Drank it all in the morning
    Waiting for the dark to move in
    Sitting in my step-sister's kitchen
    Horseflies on the window sill
    Eyes trained on the lemon king
    And wishing it were a gun

    I'm thinking of our wedding rings
    Trapped inside the heater
    Spring water on the floor of this
    Sex starved room

    The nightmare's fires burn
    The waves of bliss
    I tried to stop it with my hand
    I was lost in the kiss
    With you

    Mood swing whiskey
    Your bliss, the actress,
    Bliss, the assassin
    Bliss, the abyss

    Did a crazy shot of whiskey
    In about zero to sixty
    All i could see was the beer

    I face the future with a drink in my right
    Eyes to the sparkling gloom
    Body naked, afraid, and amazed

    Say boost me up to your junkyard paradise
    Boost me up to your junkyard paradise
    With a sweet-*** photo of you

    She cheated, and she lied, and you stole her
    Stung my tongue just like
    Sweat from her shoulder

    Ooh, mood swing whiskey
    Your love, the destroyer
    Love, the destroyer
    Love, love...

    Yes mood swing whiskey has my brain
    Only you can break this chain
    Are you here in my bed again
    Can you hear my love again [x4]

    Run down the subway station babe
    I'm packing my rod
    All and present histories erased
    I am a punishing god
    Mood swing whiskey
    Yeah the leaves are made of
    Messy things again

    And i said this is all the headless acrobats
    Faces crushed in the circus dust
    All for the law of gravity
    And the price of admission

    Beautiful loser warm hearts have let you down
    Beautiful loser warm hearts have left you
    Oh no, you...

    I think of mankind in quotation marks
    Ever since i took a drink from you
    This is for all the headless acrobats
    Faces crushed in the circus dust
    All in the name of gravity
    And the price of admission

    Beautiful loser while eyes have let you now
    Beautiful loser while eyes have let you now
    Cause you're beautiful

    I think of mankind in quotation marks
    Ever since I took a drink of you
    I hope death is joyful, and I hope I'll never return -Frida Khalo

    If I seem insensitive to what you are going through, understand it's the way I am- Mr. Spock

    Personally, I think that the unique and supreme delight lies in the certainty of doing 'evil'–and men and women know from birth that all pleasure lies in evil. - Baudelaire

    i can wait
    i can wait
    i can sit wondering what in world you think about
    i don't think i'm ever gonna figure it out
    after all the alchohol, the pretty words that devolve down
    to slurs and drunken shouts
    i don't think i'm ever gonna figure it out
    it's like some wild last frontier
    you never know what kind of fight's gonna appear
    that once begun can't be won
    started out losing already and go all ten rounds
    i don't think i'm ever gonna figure it out
    the tired hits that fall below
    i can't connect, yeah yeah i know
    i can wait
    i can wait
    i can sit wondering what in the world you think about
    i don't think i'm ever gonna figure it out
    i don't think i'm ever gonna figure it out
    i don't think i'm ever gonna figure it out

    Diluted them?
    Maybe this time tomorrow
    The rain will cease to follow
    And the mist will fade into one more today.

    Something somewhere out there keeps calling.
    Am I going home?
    Will I hear someone
    Singing solace to the silent moon?
    Zero gravity...What's it like?
    Am I alone? Is someone there
    Beyond these heavy aching feet?
    Still the road keeps on telling me to go on.
    Something is pulling me,
    I feel the gravity of it all...

    O so incredible.

    Each atom
    Sings to me
    "Set me free
    From chains of the physical."

    O free me, O free me...

    The mirror melts,
    I'm somewhere else
    Inside eternity.

    Where you on
    Outstretched wings
    Sing within
    The Garden of Everything

    Where memories
    Call to me,
    Backward dreams
    Or phantom reality?

    Call to me, they call to me...

    And so here we are,
    Lovers of Lost Dimensions,
    Burning supernovas of all sound and sight,
    Every touch, a temptation...
    And for every sense, a sensation.

    Eyes of pure
    Deep azure
    Quite unbelievable.

    The sun's daughter,
    You've been made
    Not to fade.
    Quite inconceivable.

    Each atom
    Sings to me
    "Set me free
    From chains of the physical."

    O free me O free me

    A love like ours,
    A starry flower
    Through seasons and centuries.

    As rivers reach the sea,
    You reach me
    With songs of your symmetry.

    A small boat
    Now will float
    To far off coasts,
    The Isle of Infinity.

    Come with me. O come with me...

    Here we'll see
    Love's lost tree
    Made out of miracles.

    Emotions, crystal leaves
    Cover me
    And you in eternity.

    Each atom
    Sings to us
    Through the blood
    "Love is a miracle."

    It sings softly, it sings softly...

    And so here we are,
    Lovers of Lost Dimensions,
    Burning supernovas of all sound and sight,
    Every touch, a temptation...
    And for every sense, a sensation.

    And so here we are,
    Twin stars of brilliant brightness,
    Lanterns lit by life for all the dark night.
    And every day will return us
    To arms of the ever eternal.

    And so here we are,
    So far from earthly orbits,
    Burning supernovas of all sound and sight,
    Where every day will return us
    To arms of the ever eternal.

    Here we are,
    Lovers of lost dimensions,
    Where every day will return us
    To arms of the ever eternal.

    A rainbow rat -
    A checkered cat
    Go tail in tail along the road.
    The mouse is pleased,
    The moon is cheese.
    The sun is shining hot and cold.

    A golden bird
    Today I heard
    Sitting upon a silver branch.
    His little song was very long,
    Which made me sad and start to laugh.

    My sister he,
    My brother she,
    But there is only me in the family.
    When I grow up
    I'll go down
    The river to the Singing Sea.

    "He had a word, too. Love, he called it. But I had been used to words for a long time. I knew that that word was like the others: just a shape to fill a lack; that when the right time came, you wouldn't need a word for that any more than for pride or fear."
