They said clean would make it better but I miss being filthy and the cover it provides.

may not be that great, but the way they're sang and the background repeats really hit me

One day I’m going to leave this city
And you can follow me
Find the places without city lights
Wherever that be

You tell me we’re living half asleep
Loving in and out of a dream
If our past is the cloth
Our future’s the seam

Am I reaching you?
We’re growing so very fast
Are you reaching me?
With everyone as their own broadcast

One day you’re going to leave this shell and
Wander in and out of the day
A ghost of forgotten guilt and forgotten pain
It’s what the lonely say

You tell me we’re living the life of the meek
Buying into clouds of steam
If our ego’s the cloth
Our folly’s the seam

I can't remember if these have been posted in this thread before, but the song just came on and so I wanted to post them:

[iI]I was riding on my mother's hip
she was shorter than the corn
all the years I took from her
just by being born[/i]

Just breaks my heart in half every single time. Just perfect.

I hate your mom. I hate it when she opens her mouth. It's amazing to me how much you can say when you don't know what you're talking about.

Yesterday we lost our lives, tomorrow we were born
Fortune smiled upon us, sacrifice the Argus
All that he might help us see
Magna eyes the track for miles, looking for disease
Puzzled by the mountains - tricked by the sea
And the Argus is practiced compassion
With an eye on you, as one is on me
Will the god eye grant his forgiveness
And allow he that's lived, a reason to see
Counting days and building walls, bells ring so's to warn
All the signs that guide us, chosen by the Argus
Tell me has chosen you
Led by form we'll shed our soul
Trusting like a child
See the dark face that saved us
Drink from his empty eyes
And the Argus is practiced compassion
With an eye on you, as one is on me
Will the god eye grant his forgiveness
Letting droplets of light erupt from the sea...
Lying in beds of garlic and orchids, he closes an eye, which closes another
And in sleep he dreams, of watching and looking and feather clouds dancing
He curls up his lid and sleeps...
Swirling with visions on man's confusion
All of the work, done just to appease him
The Argus he cries, though love has it's place in the sun
It's only man's fear that carries him on...

Have you heard a live version of this? The album version is a little flat for me, but it rips live.

man oh man i miss the constantines

The sun was coming up
Soldiers of light storming my brain
Day, have I the guts to greet you?
Alarm clock tomorrow, cradle to the grave

Working full-time

Vigilant people
In the cult of enterprise
Lean into the day
With all your heart and mind

We were not made to fear the morning
Put down, put under and put on
We are not what we once were
We will be all undone

Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time

We won't be undersold
We won't be undersold
We won't be undersold
We won't be undersold

I'll find my wealth all about me
Shake the hand that rakes the common temper
It's your kindness that gives life to my mind
I want to wake up every morning full of wonder

Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time
Working full-time

I haven't no. I'm not really much of a live version guy. Studio versions almost always have more impact for me. And the studio version of this one works all the way for me.

if im feeling down or defeated this song wipes that feeling away

Here's to the babies in a brand new world
Here's to the beauty of the stars
Here's to the travellers on the open road
Here's to the dreamers in the bars

Here's to the teachers in the crowded rooms
Here's to the workers in the fields
Here's to the preachers of the sacred words
Here's to the drivers at the wheel

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin, let the day begin

Here's to the winners of the human race
Here's to the losers in the game
Here's to the soldiers of the bitter war
Here's to the wall that bears their names

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings…

Here's to the doctors and their healing work
Here's to the loved ones in their care
Here's to the strangers on the streets tonight
Here's to the lonely everywhere

Here's to the wisdom from the mouths of babes
Here's to the lions in the cage
Here's to the struggles of the silent war
Here's to the closing of the age.

Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Let the day begin
Here's to you my little loves with blessings from above
Now let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start

Location: Where everybody knows your name
But then something I saw
In your eyes told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
When the strangest feeling came over me
Down inside, no matter what it takes
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally held me
I will never regret
Baby, those few hours
Will grow in my head
Forever

Location: Where everybody knows your name
The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows where
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another
It's a long, long road

From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy he's my brother
He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother, he ain't heavy

There were 87 Advil in the bottle now there's 30 left
I ate 47 so what happened to the other 10?
Why do you suspiciously change the subject and break my concentration
As I dump the bottle out and I count the Advil up again?

Don't interrupt me as I struggle to complete this thought
Have some respect for someone more forgetful than yourself

I'm not together and you know it's true
My bits all wander in the trees
And if I ever seem a little strange
Would you excuse me please?

I said I'm human but you know I lie
I'm only visiting this shore
I'll soon be leaving in the outbound ride
I pray again we will meet

I'm wasting your time, just talking to you
Maybe best you go on home
I'll leave you alone, fade from your mind
Slip into the greens and blues


Pixies - Greens and Blues

I fucking love Frank Black's lyrics.

Location: Different mountains than strat and bodysnatcher.
He cursed like a billiard player,
His walking stick upon the ground,
Looks a lot like an old man should be,
Shakes a lot like an old man should.
Off and on he's been here,
Probably twenty years,
Off and on he's been here,
Guess he'll never go home.
I guess it's the comfortable chair,
And company, you can't buy company,
It's a frame of mind,
It's people who've been through what you've been through.
And a cigar,
A good cigar now and again.
Had his heart broken,
By a little girl, she was small.
Had his heart broken,
By a little girl, she was small.
Had his heart broken,
You would never expect a thing.
When he was a young man,
It was like an event.
He promised her anything,
He never had to deliver.
He promised her everything,
Ask yourself if you could do better,
He promised her everything,
She caught on.
A lot of people say she's crazy,
But i know, i know a lot of people,
And i think, i think she's alright!
He cursed like a billiard player,
His walking stick upon the ground,
And she would ask him,
She was young and she didn't know,
Why things were like this,
If anyone could know the way,
He lied to her,
He lied to her,
With a perfectly straight face.
She believed him.


Steve Albini wrote:
This is a song of nostalgia, memory and loss. The male character is reflecting on his life, and part of that is the way his mistreatment of the female character must have scarred her and how easy it was for him to slip into the mode of deception. The centrepiece of the song is improvised both musically and lyrically, and often devolves into scenes where a marginalized female character retains dignity under duress. This section always concludes with the cue, ‘A lot of people say she’s crazy, but I know a lot of people and I think she’s alright.’

Take my advice
Don't listen to me
It ain't paradise
But it used to be
There was a time
When the river was wide
And the water came running down
To the rising tide
But the wooden ships
Were just a hippie dream
Just a hippie dream.

Don't bat an eye
Don't waste a word
Don't mention nothin'
That could go unheard
'Cause the tie-dye sails
Are the screamin' sheets
And the dusty trail
Leads to blood in the streets
And the wooden ships
Are a hippie dream
Capsized in excess
If you know what I mean.
