Lyrics from softsmile:

Absolutely Cuckoo

The Magnetic Fields

Don't fall in love with me yet
We only recently met
True I'm in love with you but
you might decide I'm a nut

 

Give me a week or two to
go absolutley cuckoo
then, when you see your error,
then, you can flee in terror

 

like everybody else does
I only tell you this cause
I'm easy to get rid of
but not if you fall in love

 

Know now that I'm on the make
and if you make a mistake
my heart will certainly break
I'll have to jump in a lake

 

and all my friends will blame you
There's no telling what they'll do
It's only fair to tell you
I'm absolutely cuckoo

 

 

Dream Police

Cheap Trick

The dream police, they live inside of my head.
The dream police, they come to me in my bed.
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me, oh no.

You know that talk is cheap, and those rumors ain't nice.
And when I fall asleep, I don't think I'll survive the night,

The night.

'Cause they're waiting for me.
They're looking for me.
Every single night

They're driving me insane.
Those men inside my brain.

The dream police, they live inside of my head.
(Live inside of my head.)
The dream police, they come to me in my bed.
(Come to me in my bed.)
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me, oh no.

Well, I can't tell lies, 'cause they're listening to me.
And when I fall asleep, bet they're spying on me tonight,

Tonight.

'Cause they're waiting for me.
They're looking for me.
Every single night

They're driving me insane.
Those men inside my brain.

I try to sleep, they're wide awake, they won't let me alone.
They don't get paid or take vacations, or let me alone.
They spy on me, I try to hide, they won't let me alone.
They persecute me, they're the judge and jury all in one.

'Cause they're waiting for me.
They're looking for me.
Every single night

They're driving me insane.
Those men inside my brain.

The dream police, they live inside of my head.
The dream police, they come to me in my bed.
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me.

 

 

Defying Gravity

Jesse Winchester

I live on a big round ball
I never do dream I may fall
And even one day if I do
Well, I'll jump off and smile back at you

I don't even know where we are
They tell you we're circling a star
Well, I'll take their word, I don't know
But I'm dizzy so it may be so

I'm riding a big round ball
I never do dream I may fall
But one day the high must lay low
So when I do fall I'll be glad to go
Yeah, when I do fall I'll be glad to go

 

LYRICS FROM NICOLA

 

Sleep

Jawbreaker

 

It seems I spend my days now

wrapped in veils of sleep.
Caught in slumber's grasp,

nowhere that I should be.
I grew so goddamned tired

of fighting against these chains.
No signs of relief

or payment for my pains.


I know that I must try to break out of

this cell I call my life.
To go to sleep is just to hide away.
I close my eyes so I won't see the things

I'd have to try to get.
I haven't tried I've only turned away.

 

In my sleeping world

I thought that I was safe.
Free from all the pain and

burning light of day.
But even in my sleep now

life is less than kind.

 

No escaping from

this madness in my mind.

 

I know that I must try to break out of

this cell I call my life.
To go to sleep is just to hide away.
I close my eyes so I won't see the things

I'd have to try to get.
I haven't tried I've only turned away.

Severing.

Narcolepsy

Ben Folds

I should warn you
I go to sleep
I know you don't
know what I mean
yet
I get
upset or happy
I go to sleep
nothing hurts when
I go to sleep

but I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired

I know it seems
that I don't care
but something in me
does, I swear
I don't remember
all last year
I left you awake
to cry the tears
while I was dreaming in streams
flowing between the shores
of joy and sadness
I'm drowning
save me
wake me up

I should warn you
I go to sleep
you won't know when I go to sleep
'cause I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired

I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired

I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired

I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired
I'm not tired

I just sleep


Slip Like Space

Armor For Sleep

 

Watch me point to the sky,
You laugh and say I'll never fly,
I'll smile as you walk away,
I always knew I couldn't stay.

Full throttle now.

The Milky Way can't wait. (2x)

Time has turned into space ports,
and I rocket past the moon,
Say your goodbyes now,
I'll be in the wormhole soon.

This planet wasn't made for me,
All of you live so easy,
I lay outside and up I stare,
My home is in the void up there.

Full throttle now.

The Milky Way can't wait. (2x)

Time has turned into space ports,
and I rocket past the moon,
Say your goodbyes now,
I'll be in the wormhole soon.

Approach light speed,
And break apart,
I don't care now,
Nothing's real somehow. (2x)

Time has turned into space ports,
and I rocket past the moon,
Say your goodbyes now,
I'll be in the wormhole soon. (2x)

 

 

Parachute

Guster

 

 

There we stand
About to fly
Peeking down over land
Parachute behind
What was that moment for
Which we live
Without a parachute
About to die

Find my self convincing
Blindly falling faster
How easy
Know the place I'm leaving
And the rest is just gone

Oh the adoration
But how much strength does it take
For exploration
For split decision
Are you stronger to remain

Find my self convincing
Blindly falling faster
How easy
Know the place I'm leaving
And the rest is just gone

It crept up on me
Ignored all my pleas
Begging to leave
No justice to maim me
Fell out of the sky
Cease it to be
Without a reply
Gravity fails me
When I awoke
I knew what was real
Hope to convince you
Lies they all torture me
Opened the door

Knew what was me
I finally realized


Parachute over me

 

 

How to disappear completely
Radiohead


That man, that's not me
I go where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here

In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah, it's gone

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes

I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here, I'm not here....

 

 

Schizophrenia

Cat Power

Weighted down by possessions
Weighted down by the gun
Waited down by the river for you to come

And who socks were you darning, poor darling
While I was away, away too long
I went away to see an old friend of mine
Sister came over and knew she was out of her mind
She says jesus has a twin who donít know nothing about sin
She was half crazy and out of her mind

Weighted down by possessions
Weighted down with a gun
Waiting down by the river for you to come

Her light eyes were dancing she is insane
Her brother says sheís just a bitch on a golden chain
She keeps coming closer saying
I can feel it in my bones, schizophrenia is taking me home

Weighted down by possessions
Iím weighted down with my gun
Iím waiting down by the river for you to come.

 

 

LYRICS BY Lordrastilian

How Will I Laugh Tomorrow
SUICIDAL TENDENCIES


Here I sit and watch my world come crumbling down
I cry for help but no one's around
Silently screaming as I bang my head against the wall
It seems like no one cares at all

Always an emotion, but how can I explain; how can I explain?
Kind of like the scent of a rose, with words I can't explain, the same with my pain
Caught up in emotion, goes over my head; goes over my head!
Sometimes I got to think to myself is this life or death,

am I living or am I dead

The clock keeps ticking, but nothing else seems to change
Problems never solved, just rearranged
And when I think about all the times that I've had
Some were good most were bad

I search for personality and I look for things I cannot see
Love and peace flash through my mind; pain and hate is all I find
Find no hope in nothing new and I never had a dream come true
Lies and hate and agony; thru my eyes that's all I see

If I'm gonna cry, will you wipe away my tears?
And if I'm gonna die, Lord please take away my fear
Before I drown in sorrow, I just want to say;

 

How will I laugh tomorrow,

When I can't even smile today

Today today!

when I can't even smile today
Today today!

 

when I can't even smile today
How will I laugh tomorrow,

When I can't even smile today !
How will I laugh tomorrow,

When I can't even smile today !

You think it's so funny...

 

...laugh at this!

So when I look outside my room
I see the world, but not the reason
What is done to me is not fair
You call it fair I call it treason
But I don't know what to do
Give me a sign I'll take whatever
But if you want me here I am
Ain't gonna die forever

And I tried to hold ya
But you just turned away
And I tried to tell ya
But not a word I say
I cried out so loudly
But you just covered your ears
And gave me all the signs
That you don't want my tears

So if you want me here I am
I sit and wait your decision
But my body fights my mind
I headed straight for a collision
So am I getting near or am I still
Looking in all the wrong places
But the only thing that seems to change
Are the looks on the faces...

 

( awesome guitar solo )


Doesn't anyone...seems like no one cares at all
I search for personality and look for things I cannot see
Does anyone even care at all?
Love and peace flash through my mind; pain and hate is all I find
Seems like no one cares at all
Find no hope in nothing new and I never had a dream come true
Does anyone even care at all?
Lies and hate and agony; thru my eyes that's all I see
Seems like no one cares at all

How will I laugh tomorrow?
How will I laugh tomorrow?
How will I laugh tomorrow?
How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today

Today !

Today !

when I can't even smile today

 

Today!

Today !

When I can't even smile today !


How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today
How will I laugh tomorrow, when I can't even smile today...

 

White Rabbit

 by Jefferson Airplane

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.

 

Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.

 

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.

 

Call Alice
When she was just small.

 

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.

 

Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.

 

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's off with her head!
Remember what the dormouse said:

 

Feed your head! Feed your head!

 
Brain Damage

 Pink Floyd

The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

"I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvelous! HaHaHa!"

 

 
Outside Looking In

Fate's Warning

staring, silent, naked and cold
outside looking in
peeling away this fragile shell
to face the fear within
and the man in the mirror looks on
as the cuts begin

outside looking in
getting over my fears and under my skin
tearing myself apart
to feel whole again, outside looking in

running, tired, tortured and torn
outside looking in
clawing away these open scars
to heal the wounds within
and the man in the mirror looks out
as he reaches in

outside looking in
getting over my fears and under my skin
tearing myself apart
to feel whole again, outside looking in

too many things left undone
too late to turn back
i could change course before the end
but when all is said and done
all i really want
is a chance to start again

staring, silent, naked and cold
outside looking in
feeling my way through this wilderness
for a place to begin
and the man in the mirror reaches out
to the man within

 

 
Voices

 Dream Theater

'Love, just don't stare'
He used to say to me
every Sunday morning
The spider in the window
The angel in the pool
The old man takes the poison
Now the widow makes the rules

'So speak, I'm right here'
She used to say to me
not a word, not a word
Judas on the ceiling
the Devil in my bed
I guess Easter's never coming
So I'll just wait inside my head

Like a scream but sort of silent
living off my nightmares

Voices repeating me
'Feeling threatened?
We reflect your hopes and fears.'
Voices discussing me
'Others steal your thoughts
they're not confined
within your mind.'

Thought disorder
Dream control
Now they read my mind on the radio
But where was the Garden of Eden?

I feel elated
I feel depressed
Sex is death, Death is sex
Says it right here on my Crucifix

Like a scream but sort of silent
living off my nightmares

Voices protecting me
'Good behavior
brings the Savior
to his knees.'
Voices rejecting me
'Others steal your thoughts
they're not confined
to your own mind.

 


Take The Pain Away

 The Ramones

I went out today for a walk in the rain
I was so sad and blue I could feel any pain
I was worried about everything my head began to howl
I am running away from myself there's
too many demons around here now

Everybody I don't know what to say
I wish I could take the pain away
Everybody I don't know what to say
I wish I could take the pain away

But that can't happen and everybody knows it's true
And if you have to know I'll never understand you
So if you have to go then you'd better go now
Go off somewhere safe I hope you will somehow

Everybody I don't know what to say
I wish I could take the pain away
Everybody I don't know what to say
I wish I could take the pain away

Everybody I don't know what to say
I wish I could take the pain away
Everybody I don't know what to say
I wish I could take the pain away
