Nelson algren came to paddy at some party at the dead end alley. he told him what to celebrate.
And i met william butler yates. sunday night dance party summer 1988. at first i thought it might be william blake.

We mix our own mythologies. we push them out through pa systems. we dictate our doxologies and try to get sleeping kids to sit up and listen. and i'm not saying we could save you. but we could put you in a place where you could save yourself. if you don't get born again at least you'll get high as hell.

yeah and sweet saint paul. that must be the hardest luck saint of them all. we met him in some suburban saint paul mall.
and st. theresa came to holly, but i wasn't even at that party. i'd already moved out to new york city. when judas went up and kissed him. i almost got sick. i guess i knew what was coming. i guess i knew it was coming.

We gather our gospels from gossip and bar talk then declare them the truth. we salvage our sermons from message boards and scene reports. we sic 'em the youth. we try out new testaments on the guys sitting next to us in the bars with the bars in their windows. even if you don't get converted tonight you must admit that the band's pretty tight.

They did and she's got legs and they ain't 2 proud 2 beg into something by the dixie dregs. they faked their way through fairytale of new york. when the band stopped playing we howled out for more.
Hey nelson algren! Chicago seemed tired last night. they had cigarettes where there were supposed to be eyes. hey william butler yates! oh, the irish seemed wired last night. they tried to separate our girls from our guys. they had cigarettes where there were supposed to be eyes.
(Christmas)
The snow's coming down
(Christmas)
I'm watching it fall
(Christmas)
Lots of people around
(Christmas)
Baby please come home

(Christmas)
The church bells in town
(Christmas)
All ringing in song
(Christmas)
Full of happy sounds
(Christmas)
Baby please come home

They're singing "Deck The Halls"
But it's not like Christmas at all
Cuz I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas)
Pretty lights on the tree
(Christmas)
I'm watching them shine
(Christmas)
You should be here witha me
(Christmas)
Baby please come home


There singing deck the halls
But it's not like Christmas at all
Cuz I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

(Christmas)
If there was a way
(Christmas)
I'd hold back this tear
(Christmas)
But it's Christmas day
(Please)
Please
(Please)
Please
(Please)
Please
(Please)
Please
Baby please come home
(Christmas)
Baby please come home
(Christmas)
Baby please come home
(Christmas)
Baby please come home
"As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
Oh the warmth in your eyes swept me into your arms
Was it love or fear of the cold that led us through the night?
For every kiss your beauty trumped my doubt

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no
This time no"

We'll be washed and buried one day my girl
And the time we were given will be left for the world
The flesh that lived and loved will be eaten by plague
So let the memories be good for those who stay

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no"
Yes, my heart told my head
"This time no
This time no"

Oh the shame that sent me off from the God that I once loved
Was the same that sent me into your arms
Oh and pestilence is won when you are lost and I am gone
And no hope, no hope will overcome

And if your strife strikes at your sleep
Remember spring swaps snow for leaves
You'll be happy and wholesome again
When the city clears and sun ascends

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no"

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"
But my heart told my head
"This time no
This time no""
Wicked Game- Chris Isaak by chucho 12-05-10 03:51


The world was on fire
No one could save me but you.
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
No, I don't want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
With you
With you

What a wicked game you play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do
To make me dream of you
And I don't wanna fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
And I don't want to fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]

World was on fire
No one could save me but you
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No I don't wanna fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart
No I don't wanna fall in love
[This love is only gonna break your heart]
With you
With you

Nobody loves no one




What a wicked game you play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you

No I don't wanna fall in love...
Hey hey hey, the end is near
On a good day you can see the end from here
But I won't turn back, now, though the way is clear
I will stay for the remainder

I saw a life, and I called it mine
I saw it, drawn so sweet and fine
And I had begun to fill in all the lines
Right down to what we'd name her

Our nature does not change by will
In the winter, 'round the ruined mill
The creek is lying, flat and still
It is water though it's frozen

So across the years and miles, and through
On a good day, you can feel my love for you
Will you leave me be, so that we can stay true
To the path that you have chosen

Heading down south to the land of the pines
I'm thumbing my way in the North Caroline
Staring up the road pray to God I see headlights
I made it down the coast in seventeen hours,
Picking me a bouquet of dogwood flowers
And I'm a hopin' for Raleigh,
So I can see my baby tonight

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel,
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey... momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain,
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey... momma rock me

Running from the cold up in New England.
I was born to be a fiddler in an old time string band
My baby plays a guitar I pick a banjo now,
Oh north country winters keep a getting me
And I lost my money playing poker so I had to up and leave
But I ain't turning back and living that old life no more

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel,
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey... momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain,
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey... momma rock me

Walkin' to the south out of Roanoke,
I caught a trucker out of Philly had a nice long toke.
But he's a heading west to the Cumberland gap,
From Johnson City, Tennessee.
Now I gotta get a move on before the sun,
I hear my baby calling my name and I know that she's the only one.
And If I die in Raleigh at least I will die free.

So rock me momma like a wagon wheel,
Rock me momma any way you feel
Hey... momma rock me
Rock me momma like the wind and the rain,
Rock me momma like a south bound train
Hey... momma rock me




And If I die in Raleigh at least I will die free...
Everyday is a day that I can say
I keep my head above the waves

The news I just received
So shamelessly deceived
The truth just seems to hurt
A little more and more

I guess it all depends
The stupid life and stupid friends
Are you asking me to leave

The beauty I have seen I cannot keep
It seems the more I dream
The less I want to sleep

And then I go
All alone I'll have you know
It's only yours but even so
You can save my life again

Claw away circuits break
Multiply your worst mistake
As we complicate the end

Am I just giving up
Do I just sing for sound
Too smart too sick
Too weak to settle down

Lies just cut and paste
The sharp and bitter taste
God and I don't talk much anymore

The hopeless hearts
Rules that we can steal
We have more hurt inside
Than we could ever feel

Well I wonder
All alone I'll have you know
It's only yours but even so
You can save my life again

Claw away circuits break
Multiply your worst mistake
As we complicate the end

Dream of glass and window sills
Sea of alcohol and pills
And I wonder if you could save my life

You say you don't want to live
Is there nothing I can give
To help you sleep tonight
Glee fucked this song up. The original is the only way to go.

"Yeah, yeah,
I'm up at Brooklyn, now I'm down in Tribeca
Right next to DeNiro, but I'll be hood forever.
I'm the new Sinatra and since I made it here
I can make it anywhere, yeah, they love me everywhere.

I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicanos
Right there up on Broadway, brought me back to that McDonald's
Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street
Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons whippin' pastry

Crusin' down 8th street, off-white Lexus
Drivin' so slow, but BK is from Texas
Me, I'm up at Bed-Stuy, home of that boy Biggie
Now I live on Billboard and I brought my boys with me.

Say what up to Ty Ty, still sippin' Mai Tai
Sittin' courtside, Knicks and Nets give me high-fives
Nigga, I be spiked out. I could trip a referee
Tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from...

New York. Concrete jungle that dreams are made of.
There's nothing you can't do now you're in New York.
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you. Lets hear it for New York,
New York,
New York.

Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game.
Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can.
You should know I bleed blue, but I ain't a Crip though
But I got a gang of niggas walkin' with my clique, though

Welcome to the melting pot, corners where we're sellin' rock.
Afrika Bambaataa shit, home of the hip hop.
Yellow cab, Gypsy cab, Dollar cab, holla back.
For foreigners that ain't fifty, they act like they forgot how to act.

Eight million stories out there and they're naked.
City's a pity, half of ya'll won't make it.
Me, I got a plug, Special Ed "I Got It Made"
If Jesus playin' Lebron, I'm playin' Dwyane Wade

Three dice, Cee-lo, three card Monte
Labor Day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley
Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade
Love live the Kingdom, I'm from the Empire State that's...

New York. Concrete jungle that dreams are made of.
There's nothing you can't do now you're in New York.
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you. Lets hear it for New York,
New York,
New York.

Lights is blinding, girls need blinders
So they can step out of bounds quick
The sidelines is blind with casualties
Who sippin' life casually then gradually become worse

Don't bite the apple, Eve, caught up in the In crowd,
Now you're in style. End of the winter gets cold,
En Vogue with your skin out, the city of sin is a pity on a whim
Good girls gone bad, the city's filled with them.

Mommy took a bus trip, now she got her bust out
Everybody ride her, just like a bus route
Hail Mary to the city, you're a virgin
And Jesus can't save you, life starts when the church ends

Came here for school, graduated to the high life.
Ball players, rap stars addicted to the limelight
MDMA got you feelin' like a champion
The city never sleeps, better slip you an Ambien

New York. Concrete jungle that dreams are made of.
There's nothing you can't do now you're in New York.
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you. Lets hear it for New York,
New York,
New York.

One hand in the air for the big city.
Street lights, big dreams all lookin' pretty.
No place in the world can compare.
Throw your lighters in the air, everybody say
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

In New York. Concrete jungle that dreams are made of.
There's nothing you can't do now you're in New York.
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you. Lets hear it for New York,
New York,
New York."
Bjork, The Hyperballad by chucho 10-10-10 01:05
We live on a mountain
Right at the top
There's a beautiful view
From the top of the mountain
Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Like:
Car parts, bottles and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around

It's become a habit
A way
To start the day

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

It's early morning
No one is awake
I'm back at my cliff
Still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
On their way down
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
Imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks

When it lands
Will my eyes
Be closed or open?

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

"I never meant to be the one to let you down.
If anything I thought I saw myself going first.
I didn't know how to stick around.
How to see anybody but me be gettin' hurt.

I keep remembering the summer night.
And the conversation breaking up the mood.
I didn't wanna tell you, you were right.
Like the season changing, oh, I felt it too.

Does anybody know?
How to hold my heart?
How to hold my heart,
Cause I don't want to let go, let go, let go too soon.
I wanna tell you so before the sun goes dark.
How to hold my heart.
Cause I don't want to let go, let go, let go of you.

I'm not the kind to try to tell you lies.
But the truth is you've been hiding from it too.
I see the end sneaking in behind your eyes.
Saying things no words could ever do.

Does anybody know?
How to hold my heart?
How to hold my heart,
Cause I don't want to let go, let go, let go too soon.
I wanna tell you so before the sun goes dark.
How to hold my heart.
Cause I don't want to let go, let go, let go of you.

Is anybody listening?
Cause I'm crying,
Is anybody listening?

Does anybody know?
How to hold my heart?
How to hold my heart,
Cause I don't want to let go, let go, let go too soon.
I wanna tell you so before the sun goes dark.
How to hold my heart.
Cause I don't want to let go, let go, let go of you."
