"Last night I danced with a stranger
But she only reminded me you were the one
you left me standing in the doorway crying
In the dark land of the sun"

-Bob Dylan

"You wear your smile
like it was going out of fashion
Dress to inflame
But douse any ideas of passion
Carry your love in a trinket hanging round your throat
Always inviting, always excited
But I must not take off my coat"

-Robert Smith

"In a room with a window in the corner
I found truth"
-Ian Curtis

Came home tonight
Felt like I'd die of loneliness
Strange, you think

Looking for a simple life
Life ain't simple
I'm tired and sick but I
Don't wanna be alone
I'd go to a party
But I don't really want to... , etc.

With the sun in your eyes
It's easy mistaking
The truth from the lies
In the love that you're making
Don't pretend it isn't so

With the sun in your eyes
It always reveals
A voluntary bondage
That always appeals
It's how you make the garden grow

But why this weakness
No-one knows
Our conscience cries its sorrow
While we sleep
But once the morning comes
Out the back door
Silently it creeps

With the sun in your eyes
Always reminding
A sense of excitement
You've no hope of finding
With the chains that bind your feet

Belonging or longing
For a few empty hours
In a stranger's bed
To chase away
A fear that's in your head

And why this weakness
No-one knows
The vacant faceless voices on the phone
Bring words that offer no
Consolation when you're all alone

So cover your ears and shade your eyes
Of thoughts conceived between the thighs

Beaten on the brow of history
A union forged in slavery
In all that's hope and decency
A hope for you and a hope for me
For every woman, child and man
To those who'll chain you if they can
The babe you're bouncing on your knee
Needs your help now can't you see

I hopped off the plane at L.A.X.
With a dream and my cardigan
Welcome to the land of fame excess (whoa),
Am I gonna fit in?

Jumped in the cab,
Here I am for the first time
Look to my right and I see the Hollywood sign
This is all so crazy
Everybody seems so famous

My tummy's turnin' and I'm feelin' kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I'm nervous,
That's when the taxi man turned on the radio
And a Jay-Z song was on
And a Jay-Z song was on
And a Jay-Z song was on

[Chorus:]
So I put my hands up
They're playing my song,
The butterflies fly away
I'm noddin' my head like yeah
Movin' my hips like yeah
I got my hands up,
They're playin' my song
I know I'm gonna be OK
Yeah, it's a party in the USA
Yeah, it's a party in the USA

Get to the club in my taxi cab
Everybody's looking at me now
Like, "Who's that chick that's rockin' kicks?
She gotta be from out of town."

So hard with my girls not around me
It's definitely not a Nashville party
'Cause all I see are stilettos
I guess I never got the memo

My tummy's turnin' and I'm feelin' kinda home sick
Too much pressure and I'm nervous
That's when the DJ dropped my favorite tune
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on
And a Britney song was on

[Chorus]

Feel like hoppin' on a flight (on a flight)
Back to my hometown tonight (town tonight)
Something stops me every time (every time)
The DJ plays my song and I feel alright

[Chorus 2x]

They said that we were trash,
Well the name is Crass, not Clash.
They can stuff their punk credentials
Cause it's them that take the cash.
They won't change nothing with their fashionable talk,
All their RAR badges and their protest walk,
Thousands of white men standing in a park,
Objecting to racism's like a candle in the dark.
Black man's got his problems and his way to deal with it,
So don't fool yourself you're helping with your white liberal shit.
If you care to take a closer look at the way things really stand,
You'd see we're all just niggers to the rulers of this land.

Punk was once an answer to years of crap,
A way of saying no where we'd always said yep.
But the moment we saw a way to be free,
They invented a dividing line, street credibility.
The qualifying factors are politics and class,
Left wing macho street fighters willing to kick arse.
They said because of racism they'd come out on the street.
It was just a form of fascism for the socialist elite.
Bigotry and blindness, a marxist con,
Another clever trick to keep us all in line.
Neat little labels to keep us all apart,
To keep us all divided when the troubles start.

Pogo on a nazi, spit upon a jew,
Vicious mindless violence that offers nothing new.
Left wing violence, right wing violence, all seems much the same,
Bully boys out fighting, it's just the same old game.
Boring fucking politics that'll get us all shot,
Left wing, right wing, you can stuff the lot.
Keep your petty prejudice, I don't see the point,
ANARCHY AND FREEDOM IS WHAT I WANT.

The saddest songs are the happiest
The hardest truths are the easiest
Put us both to the test
And tell me if you still need me

And I will swallow these words
And see if I can still believe

The biggest lies are the little ones
When the look in your eyes is the distant one
Angel or demon
You know that they can share the same bed

I've laid awake so long
I've got them both inside my head

...

This American dream may be poisonous
Violence is contagious
Crowded or empty
I walk these city streets alone

Whoever brought me here
Is gonna have to take me home

Spunky don't like her uniform
It never fit so good
Going back to the orphanage
And the place where her garage once stood

Well it's a free-for-all
Free-for-all, free-for-all
It's a free-for-all, you and me
And if you don't like what they are telling you
You can't teach a blind man to see
Well I can see

Spunky looks good in her bright red wig
Eating chocolate chip mint ice cream
A cat named Lola with a violent past
Is balled up asleep 'cross her knees

And it's a free-for-all
Free-for-all, free-for-all
It's a free-for-all, you and me
One day the world will be ready for you
And wonder how they didn't see

Spunky knows she can save the world
In her own little way
Turning in her old uniform
'Cause you know, it really didn't pay

'Cause it's a free-for-all
Free-for-all, free-for-all
It's a free-for-all, you and me
I walk through the world with your name on my tongue
And your picture etched on my screen

A special place to go
When the pressure is on.
Neurons re-align
'til the feeling is fine
Or the trouble is gone.
They're in the business of inventing saviours.

There's always trouble
So tell yourself again
That help is on the way
And safety abounds, that safety abounds.

Traveling, swallowing dramamine
Feeling spaced, breathing out Listerine
I've said what I've said but I'd tell ya
And that you'd killed the better part of me
If you could just milk it for everything
I've said what I've said and you know what I mean
But I still can't focus on anything
We kiss on the mouth but still cough down our sleeves
Traveling, swallowing Dramamine
Look at your face like you're killed in a dream
And you think you've figured out everything
I think I know my geography pretty damn well
You say what you need so you'll get more
If you could just milk it for everything
I've said what I've said and you know what I mean
But I can't still focus on anything

Can you hear the war cry?
It's time to enlist
The people speak as one
The cattle, the crowd
Those too afraid to live
Demand a sacrifice
Of your life

Can you smell their stinking breath?
Listen to them
Wheezing and gasping and
Chanting their slogans
It's a grave digger's song
Praising God & State
So the Nation will live
So we all can remain as cattle

Can you smell the fresh blood
Steaming into the soil?
As our patriots,
Fathers, mothers and lovers
Admire the military style
Praising God and the State
Crying tears of pride
For all the fools slaughtered
For the maimed, the dying
And the dead
So the Nation will live
So the people will remain as cattle

Thats no way to live,
All tangled up like balls of string.
And we woke at dawn,
And watched the sun glide over the hill.

I just said the first three words that popped into my head,
Let me off the bus; I'm tired and sore and should probably change clothes.
The circuits are blown,
my woman is cold,
our children are stoned and worthless.
They're all waiting for you to tell them the truth,
the truth is a line that you'll never use.

Her dignity shone so brightly,
like a light on a hill.
She burned for me and no other man came near her flame.
Bad country songs, the deafening twang of the rich white kid blues.
You can own the stage but the lights and glares will not make you real.

She whispers to me I was meant to be free,
this life that we've built is deadly.
She crawls from my bed,
runs a comb cross her head.
She crawls to the train and drives herself home.

Traveler now reach the stream. The astral flight adapter.
From the pain-sheath life ascends - the Non-returner sees.
Empathy release me - and the phoenix rise triumphant.
And walks onto the certitude ground - the soul's submergence ends.

From the rounds of rebirth - he arrives onto the deathless.
Light bores through the adjunct worlds - the soul-galleon prevails.
Liberates in wisdom to complete state of negation.
The five roads subsumed by grace - emancipates from dream.

Midnight wish blow me a kiss

Make like this
Try to pretend it's true

Show me all your favorite things
Show you all mine too
Make a wish
I'll give it all to you

Hold on to your promises
Hold on to mine too
Caught like this
I'll turn it in with you

Fall apart my beating heart
Nothing left to do
Once in love
I'll be the death of you

If you close the door, the night could last forever
Keep the sunshine out and say hello to never
All the people are dancing and they're havin such fun
I wish it could happen to me
But if you close the door, I'd never have to see the day again.

If you close the door, the night could last forever,
Leave the wineglass out and drink a toast to never
Oh, someday I know someone will look into my eyes
And say hello -- you're my very special one--
But if you close the door, I'd never have to see the day again.

Dark cloudy bars
Shiny Cadillac cars
And the people on subways and trains
Looking gray in the rain as they stand disarrayed
All the people look well in the dark
And if you close the door, the night could last forever.
Leave the sunshine out and say hello to never
All the people are dancing and they're having such fun
I wish it could happen to me
'Cause if you close the door, I'd never have to see the day again.
I'd never have to see the day again.

Someone who knows how to ride
Without even falling off
Gotta be compatible
Takes me to my limits
Girl when I break you off
I promise that you won't want to get off

If you're horny lets do it, ride it, my pony
My saddle's waiting, come and jump on it
If you're horny lets do it, ride it, my pony
My saddle's waiting, come and jump on it

Sitting here flossing
Peepin' your steelo
Just once if I have the chance
The things I would do to you
You and your body
Every single portion
Send chills up and down your spine
Juice flowing down your thigh

Rise and claim freedom. And sets onto the crimson sky.
Travels nerves to freedom at labyrinth borne-sun.

Acolyte beyonder form -
to the rain's red fall another twilight's sighing.
And liberates the vessel-born. To the sky stoned
chariot's photon main.
Climb upon beautified rays -
the recondite sails under crimson skies.
Travels nerves to freedom at labyrinth borne-sun.

Now ascent the set free as the swan navigates
toward a red sun's rising.
Align toward the glowing orb -
and reverts unto the consciousness as senses fail.
Amenance a medicant prays -
and cries onto a wind below the ice formed sky.
Rise and reclaim freedom at labyrinth borne-sun.

Toward allegiant rays yonder.
Memory-antiphon rue.
And freed initiate screen prevails.
And freed initiate screen prevails.

Everybody's restless and they've got no place to go
Someone's always trying to tell them
Something they already know
So their anger and resentment flow

But don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio

You know, the Sheriff's got his problems too
He will surely take them out on you
In walked the village idiot and his face was all aglow
He's been up all night listening to Mohammed's Radio

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio

Everybody's desperate trying to make ends meet
Work all day, still can't pay the price of gasoline and meat
Alas, their lives are incomplete

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio

You've been up all night listening for his drum
Hoping that the righteous might just might just might just come
I heard the General whisper to his aide-de-camp
"Be watchful for Mohammed's lamp"

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long Mohammed's Radio

It seems like you'd be tired of losing face
Like you'd want to put the children in their place
The more you have to tell them to do their chores
The more you run the risk of being ignored

If you're lucky they'll turn out as good as you
You tell them that they're good kids
But you know that it's not true

Your father drank a little
You're on liver number two

Progress has a way of feigning ease
Convenient new inventions bait the tease
For though it is impossible to cure
A husband bent on cheating
The oxygen's depleting
A child who's always bragging
A wife's persistent nagging
We're equipped to live as though it were

If you're lucky they'll turn out as good as you
You tell them that they're good kids

when you were young you were the king of carrot flowers
and how you built a tower tumbling through the trees
and holy rattlesnakes that fell all around your feet

and mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder
and dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
as we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for.

and this was the room i knew one afternoon i could love you
and from above you how i sank into your soul
into that secret place that no one dares to go.

and mom would drink until she was no longer speaking
and dad would dream of all the different ways to die
each one a little more than he could dare to try

I came out from under her warm sheets
Into the brisk late October
If only for one last hope
Not wanting my time with you to be over

I'm staring up into the sky
While all the rain is pouring down now
I'm reaching out for your hand
While evil beings hold me backwards

All shapes and shadows move in and out
And hover round my bed
Voices arrive and disappear
I want to talk to them

Darkness disintegrates, I'm rising
I'm rising toward a light
A light leading over hills and meadows

I've risen up from the dead
With the burning leaves of autumn
If only for one last chance
At all of whom have been defeated

To put on my father's wool coat
To smell my mother's fragrances and perfumes
To find my young brothers and sisters
To never leave or let them go

Houses adorned so beautifully
The Marin headland sun
Lost verses well up my eyes and ears
A lone mandola strums

On Tamalpais' warm springs
The many places we
Laid down in sleepy hidden shadows

I see you well and clear
Deep in the moonlight dear
Your radiant August eyes
They are the suns that rise
They are the light that lies
Lay in these lost verses

I came up from under the ocean
Evaporated sea saltwater
A mist above the skyline
I haunt the streets of San Francisco

Watch over loved ones and old friends
I see them through their living room windows
Shaken by fear and worries
I want them to know how I love them so

Fog horns will sound and wake you
Is it my voice you hear?
Footsteps are moving across the floor
And you know I'm near
Laughter carries up from the hills
And you are well and clear
To fall into the light I follow

I feel you oh so near
When mourning doves appear
And ghosts of April rain
Echo and refrain
Soon finding their place in these lost verses

They fill the foggy days
That hide the hills away
That steal our time
They are the picturesque nights
The casting city lights
On the bay flowing
Into the ocean glowing

re: kozelek, i do like him, but i find his newer stuff a bit disappointing, in that they're usually less musically inspired, and have to do more with his desire to talk your ears off. "i watched the movie the song remains the same" is a good example. i still enjoy listening to it sometimes, it's got its own introspective journey kinda thing, but Ghosts of the Great Highway stuff was more to my liking

same. I thought every one of his major releases under all monikers was totally solid until Among the Leaves. I did like Benji a bit more... Carissa and Michaeline are great, classic Koz songs. I can't even remember the newest one, Universal Themes I think it was called.

like a hunchback in heaven, he's ringing the bells in the church for the last half an hour.
he sounds like he's missing something or someone that he knows he can't

you're happy when you're lying in your bed
to know that someone's always thinking of you
it makes the doubts fly quickly from your head
up up up into the air in your room

I bit my lip a little tighter and walked away

I said, "Take this child, Lord, from Tucson, Arizona
Give her the wings to fly from harmony
And she won't bother you no more."

This is the powerful pulsing of love in my veins
After the dream of falling and calling your name out
These are the roots of rhythm, and the roots of rhythm remain.

going down the well.

and if you see me
biting my lip bloody
know i will only fight and stand for
you and me
but we're soldiers now
dodging opposite trajectories

i know it's wrong.
nothin' can be done.
men must be strong.

wake up, wake up
we have company!
the guests had arrived... my, my
an entire year rolled by

pull your fingers
on my war machine
the ultimate pleasure...
or is that an anguished cry?

oh I just love the kind of woman who can walk over a man
I mean like a god damn marching band
she says like literally music is the air she breathes
and the malaprops make me want to fucking scream
I wonder if she even knows what that word means
well it's literally not that

of the few main things I hate about her one's her petty vogue ideas
someone's been told too many times they're beyond their years
by every halfwit of distinction she keeps around
and now every insufferable convo features her patiently explaining the cosmos
of which she is in the middle

oh my god I swear this never happens
lately I can't stop the wheels from spinning
I feel so unconvincing when I fumble with your buttons

she blames her excess on my influence but gladly hoovers all my drugs
I found her naked with her best friend in the tub
we sang silent night in three parts which was fun
until she said that she sounds just like sarah vaughan
I hate that soulful affectation white girls put on

Suspended by strings over rotating wheels
Via magnets and springs of Carnegie steel
With representation our fashionable theme
And unfathomably powerful forces
Like oceans between us
We have all the signs we need
Do we decide not to read?
My will and those who precede: the relation between
Is listening beside me
At night like some seismic machine
While the metal vibrations of petrified men
Are etched in translation by pendulum pens
And the movements of underground plates
Do nothing to bridge or exacerbate

John Hiatt's "Dust Down A Country Road"

Could not get to sleep it was on my wedding night
I was tangled in the sheets and I was dreaming of a light
Pouring from her window, coming up through the floor
Lifting up the darkness crashing through my kitchen door
Down to that old oak table I went to take a look
And my whole life flashed before me just like a story book
She used to make me breakfast or sit around and talk
Have another cup of coffee or maybe take a little walk
Dust down a country road
Blowing in the wind behind an old truck load
Up before the rooster crowed
There's an old dog staring at the dust down a country road
And that truck is going somewhere I just can't be sure
When tomorrow's just the day after all that's gone before
And I always thought of leaving I never could stay too long
Now her memory's catching up and our sweet dreams are all gone
Like dust down a country road
Blowing in the wind behind an old truck load
Up before the rooster crowed
There's an old dog staring at the dust down a country road
If I had a bullet I'd put it in this gun
And I'd catch that old dog napping and I'd shoot him before he runs
'Cause he ain't much good for nothin' except staring at the dust
Lord I wonder what he's looking at sneaking up on us
Like dust down a country road
Blowing in the wind behind an old truck load
Up before the rooster crowed
There's an old dog staring at the dust

this entire song is brilliant but i especially dig the bolded parts


Twenty-nine pearls in your kiss
A singing smile
Coffee smell and lilac skin
Your flame in me

I'm only here for this moment

I know everybody here wants you
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
How our love will blow it all away

Hmm, such a thing of wonder in this crowd
I'm a stranger in this town
You're free with me
And our eyes locked in downcast love
I sit here proud
Even now you're undressed in your dreams with me

Oh, I'm only here for this moment

I know everybody here wants you
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
How our love will blow it all away

I know the tears we cried
Have dried on yesterday
The sea of fools has parted for us
There's nothing in our way
My love

Don't you see, don't you see?
You're just the torch to put the flame to all our guilt and shame
And I'll rise like an ember in your name

I know I, I know I
I know everybody here wants you
I know everybody here thinks he needs you
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
Oh let me show you
That love can rise, rise just like embers

Love can taste like the wine of the ages, oh babe,
And I know they all looks so good from a distance
But I tell you I'm the one

I know everybody here, well, thinks he needs you
Think he needs you
And I'll be waiting right here just to show you.

And distance surging like oceans between us
Suspended by strings over rotating wheels
Via magnets and springs of Carnegie steel
With representation our fashionable theme
And unfathomably powerful forces
Like oceans between us
We have all the signs we need
Do we decide not to read?
My will and those who precede: the relation between
Is listening beside me
At night like some seismic machine
While the metal vibrations of petrified men
Are etched in translation by pendulum pens
And the movements of underground plates
Do nothing to bridge or exacerbate
Oceans between us "

It's such a great song.

"Let’s retire to our knees
With our books as our graces
And kindly machines
Of concern take our places
Grow motorized trees
Build robotic faces

Who smile on command
Who can mind their own business

We’ll hold human hands
And rest human feet

In the Chapelcross Towns
Of the battle-scarred mornings
Fake leaves rustling sounds
Lay rattlesnake warnings
From our homes underground
You can still hear them moaning

Don’t cheat on your taxes
But as for your spouses

Dark secrets come out
With comma or without

When the tired young knees
Of your father walked out
To the lord I disbelieve
But increase thou my doubt
He sat down in the leaflessness
A thousand more times
I went back on my word
But I won’t go back this time

Neither bondsman nor free
But a newspaper salesmen

Who moves about words
(e.g. “death do us part”)

If our prayers are unheard
Well, our prayers are unheard"
