Wish You Were Here

 

So, so you think you can tell

Heaven from Hell

blue skies from pain

Can you tell a green field

from a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Do you think you can tell?

 

And did they get you to trade

your heroes for ghosts?

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?

And did you exchange

a walk on part in the war

for a lead role in a cage?

 

How I wish, how I wish you were here

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl

year after year

Running over the same old ground

What have you found?

The same old fears

Wish you were here

Please avoid using phrases like "I saw the universe fold in on itself and do a twirl " It makes you sound like this guy:  

So, um...I released an album a while back, and some of the tracks are on youtube. I was kinda debating whether to share them or not, but then I figured - I mean, why put them on youtube if you don't s

Queens of the stone age.... Mosquito Song

 

I know, I know the sun is hot

Mosquitos come suck your blood

Leave you there

All alone just skin and bone

When you walk among the trees

Listening to the leaves

The further I go the less I know

The less I know

 

Where will you run?

Where will you hide?

Lullabies

To paralyze

 

Fat and soft, pink and weak

Foot and thigh, tongue and cheek

You know I'm told they swallow you whole

Skin and bone

Cutting boards and hanging hooks

Bloody knives, cooking books

Promising you won't feel a thing

At all

 

Swallow and chew

Eat you alive

All of us food that hasn't died

And the light says

 

Somehow they pick and pluck

Tenderize bone to dust

The sweetest grease, finest meat you'll ever taste

Taste, taste

So you scream, whine, and yell

Supple sounds of dinner bells

We all will feed the worms and trees So don't be shy

 

Swallow and chew

Eat you alive

All of us food that hasn't died

Stairway To Heaven

 

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed

With a word she can get what she came for.

Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

 

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure

'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.

In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

 

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,

And my spirit is crying for leaving.

In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,

And the voices of those who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder,

Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

 

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason.

And a new day will dawn for those who stand long

And the forests will echo with laughter.

 

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,

It's just a spring clean for the May queen.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run

There's still time to change the road you're on.

And it makes me wonder.

 

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,

The piper's calling you to join him,

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know

Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

 

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our soul.

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold.

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last.

When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll.

 

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

Title: Harajuku Girls

 

Wa-mono

There's me, there's you (hoko-ten)

In a pedestrian paradise

Where the catwalk got its claws (meow)

A subculture, in a kaleidoscope of fashion

Prowl the streets of Harajuku (irasshaimase)

 

Super lovers, tell me where you got yours

(At the super lovers store)

Yohji Yamamoto

I'm hanging with the locals

 

Where the catwalk got its claws

All you fashion know-it-alls

With your underground malls

In the world of Harajuku

Putting on a show, when you dress up in your clothes

Wild hair color and cell phones

Your accessories are dead on

 

Harajuku girls, you got the wicked style

I like the way that you are

I am your biggest fan, oh

 

Harajuku girls

I'm looking at you girls

You're so original girls

You got the look that makes you stand out

Harajuku girls, I’m looking at you girls

You mix and match it girls

You dress so fly and just parade around (arigato)

 

I'm fascinated by the Japanese fashion scene

Just an American girl in the Tokyo streets

My boyfriend bought me a Hysteric Glamour shirt

They’re hard to find in the States, got me feeling couture

 

What’s that you got on

Is it Comme Des Garcons

A Vivienne Westwood can’t go wrong

Mixed up with second-hand clothes

(Let's not forget about John Galliano, no)

Flip the landscape when Nigo made A Bathing Ape

I’ve got expensive taste (oh well)

Guess I’d better save up (cho takai)

 

Work it, express it

Live it, command your style

Create it, design it

Now let me see you work it

Create it, design it

Now let me see you work it

 

You bring style and color all around the world (you harajuku girls)

You bring style and color all around the world (you harajuku girls)

 

Your look is so distinctive, like DNA

Like nothing I've ever seen in the USA

Your underground culture, visual grammar

The language of your clothing, is something to encounter

A ping-pong match between eastern and western

Did you see your inspiration in my latest collection

Just wait till you get your little hands on L.A.M.B.

Cause it's (super kawaii), that means (super cute in Japanese)

The streets of Harajuku are your catwalk

Bishoujo, you're so vogue

That's what you drop

 

Cho saikou, Harajuku girls

(And that’s what you drop, and that’s what you drop)

Cho saikou, Harajuku girls

(I'm your big fan, why Stefani, you like-a me?)

 

Harajuku girls [chorus in background]

Harajuku girls

 

Style detached from content

A fatal attraction to cuteness

Style is style

Fashion is fashion

Girl, you got style

Stereophonics - Mr Writer

 

 

You line them up, look at your shoes,

You hang names on your wall, then you shoot them all,

You fly around in planes that bring you down, to meet me,

Who loves you? like me crashing to the ground,

 

Are you so lonely? you don't even know me,

But you'd like to stone me,

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?

Why don't you tell it like it really is?

Before you go on home,

 

I used to treat you right, give you my time,

But when I turned my back on you,

Then you do what you do,

You've just enough, in my own view, education to perform,

I'd like to shoot you all,

 

And then you go home, with you on your own,

What do you really know?

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?

Why don't you tell it like it really is?

Before you go on home,

 

And then you go home, with you on your own,

What do you even know?

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?

Why don't you tell it like it really is?

Before you go on home,

 

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?

Why don't you tell it like it always is?

Before you go on home.

 

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?

Why don't you tell it like it always is?

Before you go on home.

roll up and shine : stereophonics

 

why don't you take a look in my mouth

why don't you take a look at yourself

so why don't you take a look around

so why don't we take a look inside

 

roll out the shock parade

free falling from a stage

performance and cocktails

roll up and shine

 

i hang the devil from a circus wire

face up seats four in love spittin fire

so why don't you take a look around

so why don't we take a look inside

 

roll out the shock parade

free falling from a stage

performance and cocktails

roll up and shine

 

it's time to live it's time to love

it's time to do what's afraid of

it's time to breathe time to relieve

it's time to shine

 

so why don't you take a look around

so why don't we take a look inside

 

roll out the shock parade

free falling from a stage

performance and cocktails

roll up and shine

 

bring on your shock parade

freaks falling from the stage

performance and cocktails

roll up and shine

Nine Inch Nails - hurt

 

i hurt myself today

to see if i still feel

i focus on the pain

the only thing that's real

the needle tears a hole

the old familiar sting

try to kill it all away

but i remember everything

what have i become?

my sweetest friend

everyone i know

goes away in the end

you could have it all

my empire of dirt

i will let you down

i will make you hurt

i wear my crown of shit

on my liar's chair

full of broken thoughts

i cannot repair

beneath the stain of time

the feeling disappears

you are someone else

i am still right here

what have i become?

my sweetest friend

everyone i know

goes away in the end

you could have it all

my empire of dirt

i will let you down

i will make you hurt

if i could start again

a million miles away

i would keep myself

i would find a way

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles - Tears of a clown

 

Now if there's a smile on my face

It's only there trying to fool the public

But when it comes down to fooling you

Now honey that's quite a different subject

 

But don't let my glad expression

Give you the wrong impression

'Cause really I'm sad, Oh I'm sadder than sad

Well I'm hurt and I want you so bad

Like a clown I appear to be glad ooh yeah

 

[Chorus:]

Well they're some sad things known to man

But ain't too much sadder than

The tears of a clown when there's no one around

Oh yeah, baby baby, oh yeah baby baby

 

Now if I appear to be carefree

It's only to camouflage my sadness

And honey to shield my pride I try

To cover this hurt with a show of gladness

But don't let my show convince you

That I've been happy since you

'Cause I need to go, oh I need you so

Look I'm hurt and I want you to know

For others I put on a show ...

 

[Chorus]

 

Just like Pagliacci did

I try to keep my surface hid

Smiling in the crowd I try

But in a lonely room I cry

The tears of a clown

When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby baby

Now if there's a smile on my face

Don't let my glad expression

Give you the wrong impression

Don't let this smile I wear

Make you think that I don't care...

possibly one of the best rap songs ever by one of the best rap groups ever

 

Dance with the devil - immortal technique

 

[Verse 1]

I once knew a nigga whose real name was William

his primary concern, was making a million

being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen

he used to fuck moviestars and sniff coke in his dreams

a corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen

nigga never had a father and his mom was a feen

she put the pipe down, but forever yeah she was sober

her sons heart simultaneously grew colder

he started hanging out selling bags in the projects

checking the young chicks, looking for hit and run prospects

he was fascinated by material objects

but he understood money never bought respect

he build a reputation cause he could hustle and steal

but got locked once it didn't hesitate to squeal

so criminals he chilled with didn't think he was real

you see me and niggaz like this have never been equal

I dont project my insurecurity's at other people

he feeded for props like addicts with pipes and needles

so he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil

a fever minded young man with infinite potetial

the product of a ghetto breed capatalistic mental

coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed

dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed

but he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

 

[Hook]

Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences

you propably only did a month for minor offences

ask a nigga doing life if he had another chance

but then again there's always the wicked at new and advanced

dance forever with the devil on a code cell block

but thats what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock

devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top

there's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot

 

[Verse 2]

So Billy started robbing niggaz, anything he could do

he'd get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew

starting fights over little shit, up on the block

stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock

working overtime for making money for the crack spot

hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine

for filling the scarface fantasy stuck in his brain

tired of the block niggaz treating him the same

he wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs

but when he tried to step to 'em, niggaz showed him no love

they told him any motherfucking coward can sell drugs

any bitch nigga with a gun, can bust slugs

any nigga with a red shirt can front like a blood

even Puffy smoked the motherfucker up in a club

but only a real thug can stab someone till they die

standing in front of them, starring straight into their eyes

Billy realized that these men were well guarded

and they wanted to test him, before business started

suggested raping a bitch to prove he was cold hearted

so now he had a choice between going back to his life

or making money with made men, up in the cife

his dreams about cars and ice, made him agree

a hardcore nigga is all he ever wanted to be

and so he met them friday night at a quarter to three

 

[Hook]

 

[Verse 3]

They drove around the projects slow while it was raining

smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment

untill they saw a woman on the street walking alone

three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home

and so they quietly got out the car and followed her

walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her

they wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor

this is it kid now you got your chance to be raw

so Billy oaked her up and grapped the chick by the hair

and dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there

she struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs

they got to the roof and then held her down on the ground

screaming shut the fuck up and stop moving around

the shirt covered her face, but she screamed the clouts

so Billy stomped on the bitch, until he broken her jaw

the dirty bastards knew exactly what they were doing

they kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving

blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently

and then they all proceeded to rape her violently

Billy was meant to go first, but each of them took a turn

ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned

a broken jaw mumbled for god but they weren't concerned

when they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and broos

one of them niggaz pulled out a brand new twenty-two

they told him that she was a witness of what she'd gone through

and if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew

he thought about it for a minute, she was practicly dead

and so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

 

(Sample from "Survival of the Fittest" by Mobb Deep)

I'm falling and I can't turn back

I'm falling and I can't turn back

 

[Verse 4]

Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life

he thought about the cold pain with the platinum and ice

and he felt strong standing along with his new brothers

cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover

but what he saw made him start the cringine studder

cuz he was starring into the eyes of his own mother

she looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her

she cried more painfully, than when they were raping her

his whole world stopped, he couldn't even contiplate

his corruption had succesfully changed his fate

and he remembered how his mom used to come home late

working hard for nothing, cause now what was he worth

he turned away from the woman that had once given him birth

and crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared

but only the devil responded, cause god wasn't there

and right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold

and so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul

they say death take you to a better place but I doubt it

after that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it

and listen cause the story that I'm telling is true

cuz I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom to

and now the devil follows me everywhere that I go

infact I'm sure he's standing among one of you at my shows

and every street cypher listening to little thugs flowe

he could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn't know

the devil grows inside the hearts of the selvish and wicked

white, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted

you have a self destructive destiny when your inflicted

and you'll be one of gods children and fell from the top

there's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot

so when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never

because the dance with the devil might last you forever

This song has been in my head all day so I'm listening to it.

 

Infra-Red by Placebo

 

On last thing before I shuffle off the planet

I will be the one to make you crawl

so I came down to wish you an unhappy birthday

someone call the ambulance there’s gonna be an accident

I’m coming up on infra-red,

there is no running that can hide you

cause I can see in the dark

I’m coming up on infra-red,

forget your running, I will find you

one more thing before we start the final face off

I will be the one to watch you fall

so I came down to crash and burn your beggars banquet

someone call the ambulance there’s gonna be an accident

I’m coming up on infra-red,

there is no running that can hide you

cause I can see in the dark

I’m coming up on infra-red,

forget your running, I will find you

(I will find you!)

[distorted singing]

someone call the ambulance there’s gonna be an accident

I’m coming up on infra-red,

there is no running that can hide you

cause I can see in the dark

I’m coming up on infra-red,

forget your running, I will find you

cause I can see in the dark

I’m coming up on infra-red,

there is no running that can hide you

cause I can see in the dark

I’m coming up on infra-red,

forget your running, I will find you

I will find you, I will find you
