"March Of The Martyrs" by OTEP

suffer. suffer. suffer.

You will know.
I will suffer so you won't.
You will know.
I will suffer so you don't.

(like a human sacrifice,
we pay the price)

& it begins
like this
every time...

My heart starts reacting,
My soul starts collapsing,
I'm dancing in fire again.
I'm burning & bleeding,
The parasites are breeding,
It's me versus me versus them.

I am whore, holy, loved, lonely
Murdering the others now and then.
I am barren, fruitful, bored but rarely useful.
A sinner seeking manic martyrdom.

The devil may care but I don't.
No masters, no gods, no laws, no soul.
I'm insignificant, I'm shiny & unique.
I'm a freak, I'm a fuck-up, I'm suffering.

Touch. Taste. Feel.

Prick the skin, push it in,
Nothing will be wasted.
All my hate, all my faith,
The cloak becomes sacred.
Prick the skin, push it in,
Nothing will be wasted.

Touch. Taste. Feel.

And you will see
And you will know
We will heal ...
Everything.

My heart starts collapsing,
My soul starts reacting,
I'm back in the fire again.
I'm burning & bleeding,
The parasites are feeding,
It's me versus me & all of them.

I am whore, holy, loved, lonely
Murdering the others I have been.
I am barren, fruitful, bored but rarely useful.
A sinner seeking manic martyrdom.

The devil may care but I don't.
No masters, no gods, no laws, no soul.
I'm insignificant, I'm shiny & unique.
I'm a freak, I'm a fuck-up, I'm martyring.

Prick the skin, push it in,
Nothing will be wasted.
All my hate, all my faith,
The cloak becomes sacred.
Prick the skin, push it in,
Nothing will be wasted.

Touch. Taste. Feel.

Prick the skin, push it in,
Nothing will be wasted.

Bred for the slaughter.
The march of the martyrs.

(exodus)

You will know.
I will suffer so you don't
I will suffer
so you won't.

The Verve - "Love is Noise" [20 Aug 2008|03:29pm]

movehalfaninch
Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles that are made in China?
Feel the bright prosaic malls
And the corridors that go on and on and on

I was blind - couldn't see
We are one incomplete
I was blind - in the city
Waiting for light wind to be saved
Cause love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again

Will those feet in modern times
Understand this world's affliction
Recognise the righteous anger
Understand this world's addiction?

I was blind - couldn't see
What was here in me
I was blind - insecure
I felt like the road was way too long, yeah
Cause love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again, again, again, again, again

Cause love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that you're feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again, again


Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles made in China?
Will those feet in modern times
See the bright prosaic malls?
Will those feet in modern times
Recognise the heavy burden
Will those feet in modern times
Pardon me for my sins
Love is noise
Come on

You can hear the song (and their album) here:

First Post/ The Spill Canvas [20 Jul 2008|08:20pm]

sarahpulse
[ mood | thoughtful ]

So i'm New to the community, this being my first post. 
I've decided to post The Spill Canvas-All Hail The Heartbreaker as i love their music and lyrics :)
Hope You Enjoy :]

I had the notion that you'd make me change my ways
And the bad habits would be gone in a matter of days
I had the feeling that you'd open up my eyes
To a whole new world that had since been in disguise

But that day will most likely never come for me
And it's just my luck to end up getting stuck
To everything you are

So tonight I'll sit and pick apart your pictures
And overanalyze your words
The truth is that I've never fallen so hard
It's taken everything in me
Just to forget your sweater so far

I had the notion that you'd make me forget the world
But your undecisive mind shows me that
You are "just another girl"
I had the feeling that those looks you gave me were real
What if I ripped your heart apart at the seams
Maybe then you'd know how I feel

But that day will most likely never come for me
And it's just my luck to end up getting stuck
To everything you are

So tonight I'll sit and pick apart your pictures
And overanalyze your words
The truth is that I've never fallen so hard
It's taken everything in me
Just to forget your sweater so far

I can honestly say
That I never, ever, ever felt this way
Your lips, your eyelashes, your skin
These are the parts of your body
That cause my comatose to begin

I can honestly say
That I never, ever, ever felt this way
Your lips, your eyelashes, your skin
These are the parts of your body
That cause my comatose to begin

I will sleep another day
I don't really need to anyway
What's the point when my dreams are infected
With words you used to say
I will breathe in a moment
As long as I keep my distance
I wouldn't want to go messing anything up

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about you constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore
I knew it the moment you walked into the door

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about you constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore
I knew it the moment you walked into the door

I'll let you get the best of me
Because there's nothing else that I do well
I'll let you get the best of me
Because there's nothing else that I do well

I'll be the giver and you'll be the taker
I guess that's how this one's gonna go
I'll be the giver and you'll be the taker
You've got me down on my knees and I proclaim all hail the heartbreaker

See I thought love was black and white
That it was wrong or it was right
But you ain't leaving without a fight
And I think I am just as torn inside

'Cos I dont know who I am, who I am without you
All I know is that I should
And I don't know if I could stand another hand upon you
All I know is that I should
'Cos she will love you more than I could
She who dares to stand where I stood

You Belong To Me - Jason Wade (of Lifehouse) [08 Jun 2008|08:38pm]

skinnylattes
See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise from a tropic isle
Just remember darlin all the while,
You belong to me.

See the market place in old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs,
Just remember when a dream appears,
You belong to me.

And I'll be so alone without you,
Maybe you'll be lonesome too.

Fly the ocean in a silver plane,
See the jungle when it's wet with rain.
Just remember till you're home again
You belong to me.

Oh I'll be so alone without you,
Maybe you'll be lonesome too.

Fly the ocean in a silver plane,
See the jungle when it's wet with rain.
Just remember till you're home again
You belong to me.

rosie thomas - let myself fall [07 Jun 2008|10:06pm]

xlizzislegend
I let myself fall
I let myself fall
I let myself fall
In love with you

There's no turning back
There's no turning back
There's no turning back
Since I let myself fall in love with you

Now I picture things
Now I picture things
Wedding gowns and wedding rings
Since I let myself fall in love with you

Lykke Li - Little Bit [07 Jun 2008|06:41pm]

gigglette
hands down
i'm too proud for love
but with eyes shut
it's you i'm thinking of
but how we move from A to B
it can't be up to me
'cause you don't know
eye to eye
thigh to thigh
i let go

i think i'm
a little bit, a little bit
a little bit in love with you
but only if you're
a little but, a little bit, a little bit
in lo-lo-lo-lo-love with me
oh

ooo-ooo...

and for you i keep my legs apart
and forget about my tainted heart
and i will never ever be the first to say it
but still I,
yes you know I..I..I..

i would do it,
push a button
pull a trigger,
climb a mountain
jump off a cliff,
'cause you know baby
i love you love you a little bit
i would do it, i would say it
i would mean it, we could do it
it was you and i and if only i..

i think i'm
a little bit, a little bit
a little bit in love with you
but only if you're
a little but, a little bit, little bit
in lo-lo-lo-lo-love with me

come here, stay with me
stroke me by the hair
'cause i would give anything, anything
to have you as my man (2X)

Etta James, Sunday Kind of Love [19 Feb 2008|06:47pm]

gigglette
I want a Sunday kind of love
A love to last past Saturday night
And I'd like to know it's more than love at first sight
And I want a Sunday kind of love
Oh yea yea

I want a a love that's on the square
Can't seem to find somebody
Someone to care
And I'm on a lonely road that leads to no where
I need a Sunday kind of love

I do my Sunday dreaming, Oh yea
And all my Sunday scheming
Every minute, every hour, every day

Oh I'm hoping to discover
A certain kind of lover
Who will show me the way

And my arms need someone
Someone to enfold
To keep me warm when Mondays and Tuesdays grow cold
Love for all my life to have and to hold
Oh and I want a Sunday kind of love
Oh yea yea yea

I don't want a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, or Thursday, Friday or Saturday
Oh nothing but Sunday oh yea
I want a Sunday Sunday
I want a Sunday kind of love
Oh yea
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday kind of love

"The Pieces Don't Fit Anymore" by James Morrison

I've been twisting and turning in a space that's too small
I've been drawing the line and watching it fall
You've been closing me in , closing the space in my heart
Watching us fading and watching us fall apart

Well I can't explain why it's not enough
Cos I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Oh just leave me now
It's the better thing to do

It's time to surrender
It's been too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore

Oh, don't misunderstand how I feel
Cos I've tried, yes I've tried
Still I don't know why
No I don't know why

Why I can't explain why it's not enough
Cos I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Oh just leave me now
It's the better thing to do

It's time to surrender
It's been too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore
The pieces don't fit anymore

You pulled me under so I had to give in
Such a beautiful mess that's breaking my skin
Well I'll hide all the bruises; I'll hide all the damage that's done
But I show how I'm feeling until all the feeling has gone

Well I can't explain why it's not enough
Cos I gave it all to you
And if you leave me now
Oh just leave me now
It's the better thing to do

It's time to surrender
It's been too long pretending
There's no use in trying
When the pieces don't fit anymore
The pieces don't fit anymore

MISSY HIGGINS - THE SPECIAL TWO

I've hardly been outside my room in days
'Cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine's rays
And darkness helped until the whiskey wore away
And it was then I realized that conscience never fades.
When you're young you have this image of your life
That you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife
And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross
And if you happen to, you wake completely lost
But I will fight for you, be sure that I will fight 'til we're the special two once again

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together
Our hands will not be torn to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we could only see each other, we'll breathe together
These arms will not be torn to need another
'Cause we're the special two

I remember someone old once said to me
That lies will lock you up with truth the only key
But I was comfortable and warm inside my shell
And couldn't see this place could soon become my hell
So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face?
Well I guess the answer is, don't do it in the first place
I know I'm not deserving of your trust from you right now,
[The Special Two lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

Ah, but if by chance you change your mind
You know I will not let you down
'Cause we were the special two, and we'll be again

And we will only need each other, we'll breathe together
Our hands will not be torn to hold another's
'Cause we're the special two
And we can only see each other, we'll bleed together
These arms will not be taught to need another's
And we're the special two

I step outside my mind's eyes for a minute
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease
Something that could ease the pain
But nothing cures the hurt you, you bring on by yourself
Just remembering, just remembering how we were

When we would only need each other, we'd breathe together
These hands would not be torn to hold another's
We were the special two
And we could only see each other we'd bleed together
These arms would not be torn to need another's
'Cause we're the special two

Rain By Breaking Benjamin
Take a photograph,
It'll be the last,
Not a dollar or a crowd could ever keep me here,

I don't have a past
I just have a chance,
Not a family or honest plea remains to say,

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

Is it you I want,
Or just the notion of
A heart to wrap around so I can find my way around

Safe to say from here,
You're getting closer now,
We are never sad cause we are not allowed to be

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

To lie here under you,
is all that I could ever do,
To lie here under you is all,
To lie here under you is all that I could ever do,
To lie here under you is all,

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day,
All the world is waiting for the sun,
All the world is waiting for the sun,
All the world is waiting for the sun.

My first post here.
 
"Lovesong-Jack Off Jill.
(Originally:The Cure.)

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again, again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again, again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Love you...

how do i love thee, rob thomas? [14 Sep 2007|01:49am]

Little Wonders (Rob Thomas)
let it go,
let it roll right off your shoulder
don’t you know
the hardest part is over
let it in,
let your clarity define you
in the end
we will only just remember how it feels

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
in these small hours,
these small hours still remain

let it slide,
let your troubles fall behind you
let it shine
until you feel it all around you
and i don’t mind
if it’s me you need to turn to
we’ll get by,
it’s the heart that really matters in the end

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

all of my regret
will wash away some how
but i can not forget
the way i feel right now

in these small hours
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away but these small hours
with these small hours, still remain,
they still remain
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away
but these small hours
these little wonders still remain

what's the matter, mary jane?
you had a hard day?
as you place the "don't disturb" sign on the door
you lost your place in line again?
what a pity
you never seem to want to dance anymore

it's a long way down
on this roller coaster
the last chance streetcar
went off the track
and you're on it

i hear you're counting sheep again, mary jane
what's the point of trying to dream anymore?
i hear you're losing weight again, mary jane
do you ever wonder who you're losing it for?

well it's full speed, baby
in the wrong direction
there's a few more bruises
if that's the way
you insist on heading

please be honest, mary jane
are you happy?
please
don't censor your tears

you're the sweet crusader
and you're on your way
you're the last great innocent
and that's why
i love you

so take this moment, mary jane
and be selfish
worry not about the cars that go by
'cause all that matters, mary jane
is your freedom
so keep warm, my dear
keep dry

tell me
tell me
what's the matter, mary jane?
tell me
tell me
please be honest, mary jane
tell me

This song makes me happy [08 Jul 2007|09:59pm]

hopeless_child
[ mood | bouncy ]

Well we could take off each other's clothes
or be best friends in the middle of the road
or we could just talk shit about tomorrow and it how it never adds up
well we could touch lips for the hell of it
it's a nice day and we're just kids
there's nothing to do anyway in this town made for two
i don't know what you meant
but i know what you said
about the big nights
about the blue sky
and the indifferent way you talk about the past you like
maybe you should write a book about it
or a song that we'll all sing along to
with la da da i'm so damn glad you moved to the city
and that's too bad you lost what you loved
it's an ugly world but you can smile all you want
well here we are in the back of your car
our hands move to the beat of our hips
no one has to know the truth about this
we we're "just out for a walk and a kiss or two"
i'll tell you girl you do a number on me
with those eyes i swear you stole from the sky
all i need, is you tonight
i don't know what you meant
but i know what you said
about the big nights
about the blue sky
and the indifferent way you talk about the past you like
maybe you should write a book about it
or a song that we'll all sing along to
with la da da i'm so damn glad you moved to the city
and that's too bad you lost what you loved
it's an ugly world but you can smile all you want
won't you meet at the sidewalk if you want
i know you know the whole truth and nothing but the
someone said you were leaving town soon
well if so then i am too
yeah we're a mess but that's fine 'cause it's me and you
well we could climb trees and lay in their leaves
they won't mind as long as we ask nice
you won't mind as long as i ask nice
or so i'm told
well we could carve hearts out of falling stars
chase the wind down the winding streets
ride in cars for hours to nowhere
we're a mess, but that's fine, 'cause it's you and me
we're a mess, but that's fine
we don't need no time to keep up with the days
you keep telling your lies
i'll keep singing these shitty love songs
