    She scratches a letter into a wall made of stone
    Maybe someday another child wont feel as alone as she does
    Its been two years, and counting, since they put her in this place
    Shes been diagnosed by some stupid fuck, and mommy agrees, yeah...

    ...
    To the rhythm of a time bomb ticking away
    And the blare of the sirens combing the streets
    Chased down like dogs we run from
    Your grasp until the sun comes up

    We crawl on our knees for you
    Under a sky no longer blue
    We sweat all day long for you
    But we sow seeds to see us through
    Though sometimes dreams just don't come true
    Look now at what they've done to you

    I won't crawl on my knees for you
    I won't believe the lies that hide the truth
    I won't sweat one more drop for you
    'Cuz we are the rust upon your gears
    We are the insects in your ears
    We crawl
    We crawl
    We crawl... all over you


    -Tim McIlrath.

    I love you Cate. always will.

    If you go chances are you'll come again
    if you come chances are you'll go
    so be mellow let it flow let it bend
    I'll see you somewhere at the end

    When you look into a mirror
    The reflection that you see
    Is a shell of what you were
    It's not who you want to be

    But you're gonna change
    You've just about made up your mind
    (You're gonna change)
    You're gonna change
    And when you leave it all behind

    What will the past remember?
    What will the future bring?
    When you walk out
    When you walk out

    You were brought into this world
    With a head full of good ideas
    But the person you became
    Well you just couldn't be for real

    -Matthew Sweet

    No matter where you are
    I can still hear you when you drown
    Youve traveled very far
    Just to see you Ill come around
    When Im down
    All of those yesterdays
    Coming around

    No matter where you are
    I can still hear you when you dream
    You traveled very far
    You traveled far, like a star
    And you are
    All of those yesterdays
    Coming around

    Is it something someone said?
    Was it something someone said?

    Yesterday the sky was you
    And I still feel the same
    Nothing left for me to do
    And I still feel the same

    It's okay, we've all seen better days
    It's okay, you don't have to run and hide away
    It's okay
    It's okay, yeah we love you anyway

    For in those reckless moments
    When doubt is creeping in your head
    Feeling like you've lost your youth
    And the dreams you had are cold and dead
    I can't reach you anymore
    That's gonna take a different man
    I can't protect you like before
    You've slipped beyond my hands
    But it's okay.......

    I wish that I could light the path
    That leads to a life of no mistakes
    Hold you from the damned be done
    That living out of safety seems to take
    I remember still the child in you
    As if only yesterday
    It was easy to break through
    I only had to kiss the pain
    But it's okay.......

    This is my chance, this is my life
    And my opening hour
    This is my choice, this is my voice
    There may be no tomorrow
    This is my plea, this is my need
    This is my time for standing free
    This is my step, this is my depth
    In a world demanding of me
    But is's okay.......

    Hey Mr. DJ, I thought you said we had a deal
    I thought you said, "You scratch my back
    and I'll scratch your record"

    I fell so far, I didn't think I'd make it back
    We are all made, as an afterthought,
    Destined to believe that we are what we are not
    I'm afraid, but I don't need to tell you that


    There's a smog moon coming I can always feel it
    The cartoon trees cannot conceal it
    When it's high up in the sky, it almost looks like it is white
    When it's high up in the sky, it almost looks like

    There's a lost man, with a bitter soul, Only for a moment,
    Did life make him whole
    And while he was, he thought he was invincible


    There's a smog moon coming I can always feel it
    The cartoon trees cannot conceal it
    When it's high up in the sky, it almost looks like it is white
    When it's high up in the sky, it almost looks like it is white

    They're not your words, but you're reciting the lines
    You don't mean a thing, but you exist in their minds
    How does it feel, when they have turned out the lights?
    'Cause you know they sooner would get rid of you, than fight.

    And the dark night, has the strongest pull
    We both know that staying young, can take its toll
    Are you afraid of finding out you're over that

    -Matthew Sweet.

    You are the sunshine of my life
    Thats why Ill always be around,
    You are the apple of my eye,
    Forever youll stay in my heart

    I feel like this is the beginning,
    Though Ive loved you for a million years,
    And if I thought our love was ending,
    Id find myself drowning in my own tears.

    You are the sunshine of my life,
    Thats why Ill always stay around,
    You are the apple of my eye,
    Forever youll stay in my heart,

    You must have known that I was lonely,
    Because you came to my rescue,
    And I know that this must be heaven,
    How could so much love be inside of you?


    You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
    Thats why Ill always stay around,
    You are the apple of my eye,
    Forever youll stay in my heart.

    Love has joined us,
    Love has joined us,
    Lets think sweet love.

    I never wanted to be more than passing time
    And you would rather disappear than cross the line
    And I’m only waiting for you
    ’cause I can’t decide
    If you’re only saying one thing
    With something else inside

    Elliott Smith--Southern Belle

    killing a southern belle is all you know how to do
    that and give other people hell
    it's what they expect from you too
    but i wouldn't have you how you want
    i don't wanna walk around
    i don't even want to breathe
    i live in a southern town
    where all you can do is grit yr teeth
    but i wouldn't have you how you want
    how come you're not ashamed of what you are?
    and sorry that you're the one she got?
    ain't nobody talking now
    nobody nothing's said
    no one's about to shout
    nobody's seen red
    but i wouldn't have you how you want
    you're killing a southern belle
    killing a southern belle
    killing a southern belle

    I've got dozen of friends and the fun never ends-as long as I'm buying

    All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a thousand enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.
  • I've been roaming around always lookin down at all I see.
    Painted faces fill the places I can't reach.
    You know that I could use somebody
    You know that I could use somebody
    Someone like you
    And all you know and how you speak
    Countless lovers undercover of the street
    You know that I could use somebody
    You know that I could use somebody
    Someone like you
    Off in the night while you live it up I'm off to sleep
    Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
    I hope it's gonna make you notice
    I hope it's gonna make you notice
    Someone like me
    If nothing is everything, I'll have it all

    'So I'll be like you
    and do what's right
    win a love I don't deserve
    out on the ice tonight...
    teach me the bluest song you know.
    The sun ain't coming up
    and I swear tonight
    it feels like snow'

    She's writing, she's writing,
    She's writing a novel.
    She's writing, she's weaving,
    Conceiving a plot.
    It quickens, it thickens.
    You can't put it down now.
    It takes you, it shakes you,
    It makes you lose your thought.
    But you're caught in your own glory.
    You are believing your own stories.
    Writing your own headlines.
    Ignoring your own deadlines.
    But now you've gotta write them all again.

    You think she's an open book,
    But you don't know which page to turn to, do you?
    You think she's an open book,
    But you don't know which page to turn to, do you?
    Do you? Do you?

    You want her, confront her.
    Just open your window.
    Unbolt it, unlock it,
    Unfasten your latch.
    You want it, confront it.
    Just open your window.
    All you really have to do is ask.

    But you're caught in your own glory.
    You are believing your own stories.
    Timing your contractions.
    Inventing small contraptions
    That roll across your polished hardwood floors.

  • Stranded in this spooky town
    Stoplights are swaying and the phone lines are down
    This floor is crackling cold
    She took my heart, I think she took my soul
    With the moon I run
    Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

    Driven by the strangled vein
    Showing no mercy I do it again
    Open up your eye
    You keep on crying, baby
    I’ll bleed you dry
    The skies are blinking at me
    I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

    And it's coming closer
    And it's coming closer

    You, shimmy shook my bone
    Leaving me stranded all in love on my own
    What do you think of me
    Where am I now? Baby where do I sleep
    Feel so good but I'm old,
    2000 years of chasing taking its toll

    And it’s coming closer

    And I'll hold up mine
    Dancin' all the time
    Dancin' all the time

    You know that that's for sure
    You never find a way
    Never find a way
    So gather around
    And see what the day brings
    And see what makes you laugh
    And see what makes you sing
    And never, nevermind
    The thing that people say
    You'll never go away
    You'll never go away
    Who knows where the storm will take us
    Who knows when the pain will break us
    When will all the G's be given
    Another chance to live in freedom
    Hey now
    Get your heart, get your heart
    Off of the shelf
    Make the grey sky blue
    Yeah, I'm talkin to you
    And nevermind
    The sick and the afraid
    Askin' out today to see a brighter day
    So gather around
    And see what the day brings
    And see what makes you laugh
    And see what makes you sing
    And never, nevermind
    The thing that people say

    Cry on demand
    how'd you learn to
    cry on demand
    why would you want to
    just close your eyes and think of me
    take back everything i said

    Childhood living is easy to do
    The things you wanted I bought them for you
    Graceless lady you know who I am
    You know I cant let you slide through my hands

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

    I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
    Now you decided to show me the same
    No sweeping exits or offstage lines
    Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

    I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
    I have my freedom but I dont have much time
    Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
    Lets do some living after we die

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

  • I want to love somebody
    I hear you need somebody to love
    Oh I want to love somebody
    I hear you’re looking
    For somebody to love

    ’cause you need to be back
    In the arms of a good friend
    And I need to be back
    In the arms of a girlfriend

    I didn’t know nobody
    And then I saw you coming my way
    Oh I didn’t know nobody
    And then I saw you coming my way

    Don’t you need to be back
    In the arms of a good friend?
    Oh ’cause honey believe me
    I’d sure love to call you
    My girlfriend
    If nothing is everything, I'll have it all

    The Rose

    Some say love it is a river
    that drowns the tender reed
    Some say love it is a razor
    that leaves your soul to bleed

    Some say love it is a hunger
    an endless aching need
    I say love it is a flower
    and you it's only seed

    It's the heart afraid of breaking
    that never learns to dance
    It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance
    It's the one who won't be taken
    who cannot seem to give
    and the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live

    When the night has been too lonely
    and the road has been too long
    and you think that love is only
    for the lucky and the strong
    Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
    lies the seed
    that with the sun's love
    in the spring
    becomes the rose

    Wish you were here...
