Hanging out with me
Elliot Smith

(excerpt)


why do you tell me stuff that's so plainly untrue?
if you'll be straight with me, i'll be straighter with you

and if you're all done like you said you'd be
what are you doin' hanging out with me?

i haven't wanted to do anything for a long time
but whatever you got right now,
would probably suit me fine

and if you're all done like you said you'd be
what are you doin' hangin' out with me?

 

The Enemy is You
Elliot Smith

(excerpt)

you go walking out
in the rose city

without a f***ing clue
with an attitude

knowing what you need
what you will not do
the enemy is you

you beat up on yourself
'cause there ain't no one else
who feels quite as good
to put straight through hell
you know yourself well
you know what you're about
just wanna block it out

well, i know what i'm gonna do with this big doubt
i'm gonna make it go away
 

Pain
Jimmy Eat World

(exceprt)



I don't feel the way I ever felt
I know
Gonna smile and not get worried
I try but it shows

Anyone can make what I have built
And better now
Anyone can find the same white pills

IT TAKES MY PAIN AWAY ! !

It's a lie
A kiss with opened eyes ....

Nevermind, these are horrid times

OH - I can't let it bother me ...
 

Seether excerpt

It seems like every days the same
And I'm left to discover on my own
It seems like everyday is grey
And there's no color to behold

They say it's over and
I'm Fine Again

Why try and stay sober
Feels like I'm dying, here

But I am aware now
Of how everythings gonna be fine
One Day, Too Late
I'm in Hell

I am aware now,
Seems everyone's gonna be fine
One Day, Too Late
Just as Well
 
TEMPORARY VISITORS
Diana Anaid


Can it be?
We are all
Temporarily visiting ?

Can I stay ?
When all the world is falling
In on me

Now all I have are questions
And
One big mess inside my head

Is this it?
Are we all just temporarily visiting?

Try to believe
This is all for good reason if I can
Still Iím here trying to comprehend

Another day done
Lost without meaning
Now youíre gone

Iím left here waiting to understand

And I donít know how it all works

And itís just like the movies
Where no one ever really gets hurt

It sounds like shit to me !

Is this it?
Are we all just temporarily visiting?


Temporary visitors
Temporary visitors
Temporary visitors
Temporary visitors
Temporary visitors
 
Keep Smiling
Clearlake


Keep Smiling, Keep Smiling,
Itíll make things that much easier

Donít say how you really feel
You wonít be helping anyone

Keep Silent, Keep Silent
Donít say more than you need to

As soon as you raise your voice
You know youíve lost the argument

Just smile politely at them anyway
Agree with everything they say

Just nod your head and act accordingly
And do the opposite of anything they tell you to

Keep Smiling, Keep Smiling
Keep Smiling, Keep Smiling . . .

Till they leave you be
 
Yes I'm well aware I'm obssessed with Dashboard Confessional,

Morning Calls


Morning calls for pain relief
A line above the step beneath

The worst that you could do
And the best that you could hope for

Is hardly the best

Tepid water chase the pills
With turpentine and chamomile

And don't get cheap with the wine

You need to be up
All of the time
All of the time

Shield your eyes,
Conceal your lies.

Don't blink,
Everyone's watching.

They'll think,
You're up to something.

They need for you to be
Everything that they cannot

Be themselves.
Be themselves . . .
 
Real life reared it's ugly head today
and i just don't care anymore.

"Can't Cry These Tears"
Garbage
(excerpt)


I just don't care anymore
I've reached the end of the rope
I just don't care anymore
Won't cry these tears anymore

Can't find it in the bible
Can't find it on t.v.
Can't find it in diamonds
There's something inside me that just went around it
Can't find it in music
Can't find it in my soul
Can't find it in chocolate
Oh babe I can't hide it
I can't even fight it

I just don't care anymore
I've reached the end of the rope
I just don't care anymore
Won't cry these tears anymore
 

OUR LIVES

The Calling



Is it love tonight
When everyone's dreaming
Of a better life

In this world
Divided by fear
We've gotta believe that
There's a reason we're here

Yeah, there's a reason we're here

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives

See the truth all around
Our faith can be broken
And our hands can be bound

But open our hearts
and fill up the emptiness
With nothing to stop us
Is it not worth the risk?

Yeah, is it not worth the risk?

Cause these are the days worth living
These are the years we're given
And these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives

Even if hope was shattered
I know it wouldn't matter

Cause these are the moments
These are the times
Let's make the best out of our lives

We can't go on
Thinking it's wrong
To speak our minds

I've gotta let out what's inside

Is it love tonight
When everyone's dreaming
Can we get it right?

Yeah, well can we get it right? . . .


Because these are the moments
These are the times

Let's make the best out of our lives
 

Shut Your Mouth
Garbage
(except)


Welcome
We love you
We hate you
We love you
We want you
We need you
We wish we were like you


Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth


What's your opinion of the dire situation
In our land here
Our guest here
Of course you'll be nice here

How do you feel about God and religion
Are you good people
Bad people
Guess it doesn't matter people

Your place
My place
Make her bring that famous face
You got some
You want some
You wanna let me get you some

We know your music but of course we'd never buy it
Itís too fake man
Right man!
We don't give a f***ing d*mn . . .


I hear you say it

Play it smart girl
Win the game love
Giveíem what they want
What they want to see

and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark

What have you been reading you smart girl?

Win the game love
Giveíem what they want
What they want to see

and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
Make a shitload

Shitload !

And the world spins by . . .


Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth



Just shut your mouth ! ! !


 

Don't Know When, But A Day's Gonna Come
(excerpt)
Bright Eyes


And you think I need some discipline
Well, I have had my share
I've been sent to my room
I've been sat in a chair

And I held my tounge
I didn't plug my ears
No - I got - A good talking to

Now I don't know why
But I still try to smile
When they talk at me
Like I'm just a child
Well, I'm not a child

I am
Much
Younger than that

But now I've read some books
And I've grown quite brave
If i could just speak up
I think I would say

That there is no truth
There is only you
and what
You make
The truth
 
We are nowhere and it's now
-Bright eyes
(Short excerpt)


I've been sleeping so strange at night
Side effects they don't advertise
I've been sleeping so strange at night
With a head full of pesticide
