"I'm So Tired", "Yer Blues" and "Help" by The Beatles

I'm so tired,

I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired,

my mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up

and fix myself a drink

No,no,no.

I'm so tired

I don't know what to do
I'm so tired

my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you

but I know what you'd do

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm

You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

I'm so tired,

I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired

I'll have another cigarette

And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid get.

 You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

 I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

 I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind

 

Yer Blues

The Beatles

Yes I'm lonely, wanna die
Yes I'm lonely, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

In the morning, wanna die
In the evening, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

My mother was of the sky
My father was of the earth
But I am of the universe
And you know what it's worth

I'm lonely, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

The eagle picks my eye
The worm he licks my bone
I feel so suicidal
Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones

Lonely, wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

Black cloud crossed my mind
Blue mist round my soul
Feel so suicidal
Even hate my rock and roll

Wanna die yeah wanna die
If I ain't dead already
Ooh girl you know the reason why.

 Help

The Beatles

 Help, I need somebody,

Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, 
Help!
 
When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.
 
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.
 
And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.
 
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.
 
When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these daya are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.
 
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,

Won't you please, please help me,

help me, help me, oh.

"I Don't Remember" and "No Self Control" by Peter Gabriel

I got no means to show identification
I got no papers show you what I am
Youíll have to take me just the way that you find me
Whatís gone is gone and I do not give a damn

Empty stomach, empty head
I got empty heart and empty bed
I donít remember
I donít remember

I donít remember, I donít recall
I got no memories of anything at all
I donít remember, I donít recall
I got no memories of anything
Anything at all

Strange is your language and I have no decoder
Why donít you make your intentions clear
With eyes to the sun and your mouth to the soda
Saying, tell me the truth, you got nothing to fear

Stop staring at me like a bird of prey
Iím all mixed up, I got nothing to say
I donít remember
I donít remember

I donít remember, I donít recall
I got no memory of anything at all
I donít remember, I donít recall
I got no memory of anything
Anything at all

I donít remember, I donít recall
I got no memory of anything at all
I donít remember, I donít recall
I got no memory of anything
Absolutely anything at all
I donít remember

 

No Self Control

Peter Gabriel

Got to get some food
I'm so hungry all the time
I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop

Got to get some sleep
I'm so nervous in the night
I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop
I don't know how to stop

Got to pick up the phone
I will call any number
I will talk to anyone
I know I'm gone too far
Much too far I gone this time
And I don't want to think what I've done
I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop

There are always hidden silences
Waiting behind the chair
They come out when the coast is clear
They eat anything that moves
I go shaky at the knees
Lights go out, stars come down
Like a swarm of bees

No self-control

You know I hate to hurt you
I hate to see your pain
But I don't know how to stop
No, I don't know how to stop

Street after street
Night after night
I walk on through the rain
I walk on through the rain
I don't know how to stop

"I Wanna Be Sedated" by The Ramones

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
 
Just get me to the airport
put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry
before I go insane
 
I can't control my fingers
I can't control my brain
Oh no no no no no
 
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go....
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-oh
I wanna be sedated
 
Just put me in a wheelchair
and put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane
I can't control my fingers
I can't control my brain
Oh no no no no no
 
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-o
I wanna be sedated
 
Just put me in a wheelchair
get me to the show
Hurry hurry hurry 
before I gotta go
 
I can't control my fingers
I can't control my toes
Oh no no no no no
 
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
Ba-ba-bamp-ba ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba I wanna be sedated
 

"I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" by Warren Zevon

So much to do, there's plenty on the farm
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Saturday night I like to raise a little harm
I'll sleep when I'm dead

HEY !

I'm drinking heartbreak motor oil and Bombay gin
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Straight from the bottle, twisted again
I'll sleep when I'm dead

ALL RIGHT !

Well, I take this medicine as prescribed
I'll sleep when I'm dead
It don't matter if I get a little tired
I'll sleep when I'm dead

I've got a .38 special up on the shelf
I'll sleep when I'm dead
If I start acting stupid
I'll shoot myself
I'll sleep when I'm dead

HEY !

So much to do, there's plenty on the farm
I'll sleep when I'm dead
Saturday night I like to raise a little harm
I'll sleep when I'm dead

"In My Room" and "I Know There's an Answer" by The Beach Boys

There's a world where I can go
and tell my secrets to


In my room
In my room

(in my room)

In this world I lock out
all my worries and my fears

 

In my room
In my room
(In my room)


Do my dreaming and my scheming

Lie awake and pray
Do my crying and my sighing

Laugh at yesterday

Now it's dark and I'm alone but
but I won't be afraid

In my room
In my room

(in my room)

 

I Know Thereís An Answer

Beach Boys

(Brian Wilson)

 

I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their heads and stay in their safety zones

Now what can you tell them
And what can you say that won't make them defensive

I know there's an answer
I know now but I have to find it by myself

They come on like they're peaceful
But inside they're so uptight
They trip through their day
And waste all their thoughts at night

Now how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

I know there's an answer
I know now but I have to find it by myself

Now how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

I know there's an answer
I know now but I have to find it by myself

"Joey" by Concrete Blonde

 Joey,

baby

Donít get crazy

Detours.

Fences... I get defensive

I know youíve heard it all before
So I donít say it anymore
I just stand by and let you
Fight your secret war.

Although I used to wonder why
I used to cry till I was dry.
Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside

Oh, Joey, if youíre hurting so am i.

Joey,

Honey

I got the money
All is forgiven.

Listen, listen

And if I seem to be confused
I didnít mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well I guess you scared me too.

But we got lucky once before

And I donít want to close the door
And if youíre somewhere out there
Passed out on the floor.

Oh Joey, Iím not angry anymore.

 And if I seem to be confused
I didnít mean to be with you.
And when you said I scared you,
Well I guess you scared me too.

 But if itís love youíre looking for

Than I can give a little more

And if youíre somewhere drunk and

Passed out on the floor

 Oh Joey, Iím not angry anymore.

 Angry Anymore

Angry Anymore

"Lithium" by Nirvana_(band)

I'm so happy 'cause today
I found my friends
They're in my head

I'm so ugly, that's okay,

'cause so are you
We broke our mirrors

Sunday morning

is everyday for all I care
And I'm not scared

Light my candles,

in a daze
'Cause I've found god

Yeah yeah yeah yeah(x6)
yeah

I'm so lonely,

that's ok I shaved my head
And I'm not sad

And just maybe

I'm to blame for all I've heard
I'm not sure

I'm so excited,

I can't wait to meet you there
And I don't care

I'm so horny, that's okay
My will is good
Yeah yeah yeah yeah (x6)
yeah

I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack
I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

I'm so happy 'cause today
I found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly,

but that's okay,

'cause so are you
We broke our mirrors

Sunday morning

is everyday for all I care
And I'm not scared

Light my candles in a daze
'Cause I've found god

Yeah yeah yeah yeah (x6)
yeah

I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack
I like it - I'm not gonna crack
I miss you - I'm not gonna crack
I love you - I'm not gonna crack
I killed you - I'm not gonna crack

Lithium Sunset

Sting

 Fill my eyes
O Lithium sunset

And take this lonesome burden
Of worry from my mind

Take this heartache
Of obsidian darkness

And fold my darkness
Inside your yellow light

I've been scattered I've been shattered
I've been knocked out of the race
But I'll get better
I feel your light upon my face

Heal my soul
O Lithium sunset

And I'll ride the turning world

Into another night
Into another night
Into another night

[See mercury falling] (x7)
