    lips are turning blue
    a kiss that can't renew
    I only dream of you
    my beautiful

    tiptoe to your room
    a starlight in the gloom
    I only dream of you
    and you never knew

    sing for absolution
    I will be singing
    falling from your grace

    there's nowhere left to hide
    in no one to confide
    the truth runs deep inside
    and will never die

    lips are turning blue
    a kiss that can't renew
    I only dream of you
    my beautiful

    sing for absolution
    I will be singing
    falling from your grace

    sing for absolution
    I will be singing
    falling from your grace

    our wrongs remain unrectified
    and our souls won't be exhumed

    "Red Brush Strokes Wave Good-bye" - Staple

    Colors do not lie…red brush strokes wave goodbye.
    I’ve looked into your eyes for the last time.

    Close those tainted eyes. The view is so amazing with them shut tight.
    Seeing your history die, awashed in white.
    Your heart no longer beats inside this chest of mine
    And I’ve never felt more alive

    Goodbye to you and all that we’ve been through
    Hello, beautiful peace realized of knowing I’m no longer you.

    And though you beckon, these red strokes still remain.
    Reminding my heart that I am not the same.

    Close those misleading eyes…All the lies you try to disguise.
    You offered so many things…so many things you said you could do…
    The thing that you couldn’t offer was the thing that killed you –
    And it screams – it’s the truth.

    Goodbye to you and to all that we’ve been through
    They’re so beautiful…the painted skies I fly in, freely, without you

    Green Day - Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

    I walk a lonely road
    The only one that I have ever known
    Don't know where it goes
    But it's home to me and I walk alone

    I walk this empty street
    On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    and I'm the only one and I walk alone

    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk al...

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone

    I'm walking down the line
    That divides me somewhere in my mind
    On the border line
    Of the edge and where I walk alone

    Read between the lines
    What's ****ed up and everything's alright
    Check my vital signs
    To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk ah...

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone

    I walk alone
    I walk ah...

    I walk this empty street
    On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    And I'm the only one and I walk ah...

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone...

    Blood On Our Hands by Death From Above 1979

    I am leaving while you turn away
    In the basement is where I'm going to stay
    There is blood in all the things I say
    Will you hate me if I stay this way?
    From the bedroom, where we're running from
    There's a sequel to things I've done
    You're a woman, we both know it's true
    By the things I have done to you
    There is blood on all the shoes you've worn
    From the people you've been stepping on
    There is blood in all the things you say
    I won't hate you if you go away
    There is blood on our hands again
    From the bedroom is where we will
    Bring it back to the love we had
    Bring it back to start again
    I am leaving you to turn away
    In the basement is where I'm gonna stay
    From the bedroom where I'm running from
    There's a sequel to the things I've done

    Faded Letters by Subseven

    I look through photographs and faded letters from you
    an empty shoebox on my bed
    lingering thoughts of what you said
    falling away from me

    they say that where I’ve been is not who I am
    and where I am does not define where I’m going
    someday I’ll find this place -

    I’ve dreamed up things that I just can’t let go
    dreamed up things I can’t let go.
    Conform in me your perfect will.

    and sometimes I hide, but you always find me
    and sometimes I run, but you’re always beside me
    I feel you beside me, never behind me
    I feel you beside me today

    this is my prayer,
    Lord that I’ll find your will my ife is in your hands draw your plans
    use my hands

    I’ve dreamed up things that I just can’t let go
    don’t let me be this way - no
    I don’t want things my way
    my delight is in you, my Holy Lord
    conform me to your will
    Lord, do with me what you will

    all these photographs and faded letters from you
    an empty shoebox on my bed
    lingering thoughts of what you said
    show me a better me.

    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.

    Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

    This is the greatest and best song in the world... Tribute.

    Long time ago me and my brother Kyle here,
    we was hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.
    All of a sudden, there shined a shiny demon... in the middle... of the road.
    And he said:
    [Sung]
    "Play the best song in the world, or I'll eat your soul." (soul)
    [Spoken]
    Well me and Kyle, we looked at each other,
    and we each said... "Okay."
    [Sung]
    And we played the first thing that came to our heads,
    Just so happened to be,
    The Best Song in the World, it was The Best Song in the World.

    Look into my eyes and it's easy to see
    One and one make two, two and one make three,
    It was destiny.
    Once every hundred-thousand years or so,
    When the sun doth shine and the moon doth glow
    And the grass doth grow...

    Needless to say, the beast was stunned.
    Whip-crack went his Whoopy tail,
    And the beast was done.
    He asked us: "(snort) Be you angels?"
    And we said, "Nay. We are but men."
    Rock!
    Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh-ah-ah,
    Ohhh, whoah, ah-whoah-oh!

    This is not The Greatest Song in the World, no.
    This is just a tribute.
    Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World, no, no.
    This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Song in the World,
    All right! It was The Greatest Song in the World,
    All right! It was the best muthaf----n' song the greatest song in the world.
    [2-part skat]
    [Spoken]
    And the peculiar thing is this my friends:
    the song we sang on that fateful night it didn't actually sound
    anything like this song.
    [Sung]
    This is just a tribute! You gotta believe me!
    And I wish you were there! Just a matter of opinion.
    Ah, f----! Good God, God lovin',
    So surprised to find you can't stop it.
    [Skat]
    All right! All right!

    [Aesop Rock]
    Well, so we meet again
    (He said he's grown spiritually since the last TIME)

    Ok, this is the dawning of the book of bitter aspects
    Where the jackals sit and watch the PEDAGOGUES last flesh
    Poison functions accompanied by six armorclad
    Black horse and buggy mechanism
    Tugged a portion of my severed vision
    The gathering of loose ends in a bucket
    Wit a shoestring budget
    Every man's got a field to plow (I know that now)
    But it's like, man I really can't afford the oxen
    Fee fie et cetera
    I smell the warm blood of the bill collector knockin
    I get awkwardly sturdy with a frigid liquid backbone
    I get swept in the pressure cooker tryin to paddle back home
    I get sprung with a vibe and alliance of clean intention
    By eclipsing doom midigons hatched to bash these picket fences
    Now I'll attend the wedding of the open SORE AND festering
    Now when the groom presents the ring
    The bride commence to blistering
    This textbook magnificently crude
    Prototype king beserker MODULE
    INSERTED vertical thirst, burst horizontal
    Treasure, loose cannons span the STARBOARD BOW OF
    The clippership dipped in truth famine pressure
    Cabin fever meter pegging ludicrous
    Beautiful cartoon troopers
    swallow brutal futility with a teaspoon full of sugar
    I rock ready aim fire, while y'all rock ready fire aim
    Then blame the stationary target WHILE the prey escapes the
    frame
    Merit badge marksman, OR poacher, it's all the same
    So I lay across the woods perpendicular to the grain

    [Chorus] *rapped in doubletime*
    I WANNA be a big bang, gotta be
    Never BOTTLE ME UP IN A probably, I wanna see a "Yes sir,
    sir"
    YES SIR!
    Armed with a tone, cross, sword to the bone
    Warn the other brothers that was born forlorn
    Big bang, SHOVEL IN A BIG DIG
    HUDDLED IN A tunnel of big dreams I think big things
    I'ma burn with this little light of mind
    and a prime concern to earn thanks, I'ma be a big bang
    *repeat*

    [Aesop Rock]
    I'm just a survivor of the wooly mammoth population
    Bottle neck effect, sorta born deaf
    Alien of shallow alchemy
    If you gon' metamorph the basemetal to precious
    Might as well steal from the rich, bewitch the peseants
    I'm floating the hoaming pigeon out hell's kitchen window
    Left an SOS infested bottle nestled in his grip so
    With a prayer circle release party and hardy wild bellow
    I observed him fly ten feet then dropped the bottles to the
    devils
    Fertile circle turn FERTILE crescent via bad investment
    Despised every second, but I GUESS I LEARNED MY LESSON!
    If I made an angel in the snow for every rotted victim
    There'd be wings to float this mothership up out the godless
    system
    Sticky panoramic CONTAMINANT planet
    In conjunction with phantom assumption
    Gutterbug alumnus candidates
    Well, I promise you I'LL man the lighthouse
    Just to help guide in your ship
    If you promise to help pull this hook out my lip (bi---)
    Godspeed, straitjacket and ragged approach
    To circle suns via folklore pollutants DERIVED strictly
    From a BC generation disgust (might be disscused)
    Community movement alluding to a
    "No blood given, no recognition"
    Life matter, I was us up all night with a rusty hammer
    Trying to build a fence around these magic beans my dreams are
    gathered
    But uh, that CERTAIN LACK of avail
    I sail a choppy lie with bouancy like a bucket of rocks (a
    bucket of rocks)

    Chorus 2x

    [Aesop Rock]
    Big bang, bi-big bang
    It's gettin bigger by the second
    Check it

    Ok, I'm here to rock the tugboat and BID the others farewell
    I shook the buddy system wisdom till the similairs repel
    I sell a barrel of spirit to dummy dimwits syndicate jackals
    I'm broken arrow to the f----n bone (broken poem)
    I don't really believe in God
    But God, I'm scared to death of God?!?
    I swear to God, I never meant to spill the beans
    Nor tear the pod
    It's like I hike an acre unimpressed
    And slept on the sabre's edge
    Enough times to splice anti-Christ's favorite pledge
    I wanna know myself
    Sorta solo sheep amidst wolves
    And still my shepherd can't administer the proper push and pulls
    I push the ghouls to man overboard
    Pull the bulls onto my sword
    And buckle down in a corner chair OF THE round table floor
    Got an angel on my left shoulder, a devil on the polar
    One a mug a frigid,one a mug a solar, sliiidde over
    The recipe's design unplug the appetite for continuity
    By stitching together AN esteemed CONGRUANCE (beautifully)
    I peel back HEARTS and lodge GRIEF physics in the chambers
    Cuartarize the wound and heads like "Gimme gimme something
    major"
    Road side prophetic, ascend well
    enveloped in a mummy ribbon system
    Blistering in a wishing well
    BIG BANG!


    AESOP ROCK ------ BIG BANG

    "When in Doubt" - by Thousand Foot Krutch

    Sat upon your bed,
    You've said the things you've said
    And I cannot believe that you seem so naive
    We exchanged our poetry,
    You seem to think a lot like me
    I'll guess I'll just assume that we could talk about most anything

    Then I ask have you ever felt abandoned?
    Felt so lost that you were stranded,
    Just like all the walls are closing in
    And you were left inside?
    Have you ever felt like your days were numbered?
    Stuck under a tree in thunder
    Seems to be no way out
    But there is One when in doubt

    Ready for another day
    Slowly watch ya waste away,
    Havin' fun, bein' cool
    Like we did in high school,
    Elementary romance feelin' nervous at the dance,
    Crack a smile hold it down,
    Whatever the circumstance,
    Sex, Drugs, Had to be cool,
    All the things we learned in school,
    Typical teenage machines,
    Anyone tell me what this means?
    I could learn, I could try,
    Never really had an alibi
    Wish I did, that’s no lie

    And you ask why
    When you feel like you could fly
    Gotta know I got the answer for ya baby,
    Drives ya crazy, it's not over
    So much more to life then this,
    Why?
    When you feel like you could fly
    Gotta know I got the answer for ya baby,
    Drives ya crazy it's not over
    There's so much more to life than this

    Things seem so hallucinary,
    In the corners of my mind they scare me,
    I know ya never meant to desert me,
    Just like ya never really meant to hurt me

    Then I ask have you ever felt abandoned?
    Felt so lost that you were stranded,
    Just like all the walls are closing in
    And you were left inside?
    Have you ever felt like your days were numbered?
    Stuck under a tree in thunder
    Seems to be no way out
    But there is One when in doubt

    There's so much more to life than this

    (rediscovered my Matchbox 20 cds :D)

    "If You're Gone"

    I think I’ve already lost you
    I think you’re already gone
    I think I’m finally scared now
    You think I’m weak - but I think you’re wrong
    I think you’re already leaving
    Feels like your hand is on the door
    I thought this place was an empire
    But now I’m relaxed - I can’t be sure

    I think you’re so mean - I think we should try
    I think I could need - this in my life
    I think I’m just scared - I think too much
    I know this is wrong it’s a problem I’m dealing

    If you’re gone - maybe it’s time to go home
    There’s an awful lot of breathing room
    But I can hardly move
    If you’re gone - baby you need to come home
    Cuz there’s a little bit of something me
    In everything in you

    I bet you’re hard to get over
    I bet the room just won’t shine
    I bet my hands I can stay here
    I bet you need - more than you mind

    I think you’re so mean - I think we should try
    I think I could need - this in my life
    I think I’m just scared - that I know too much
    I can’t relate and that’s a problem I’m feeling

    If you’re gone - maybe it’s time to go home
    There’s an awful lot of breathing room
    But I can hardly move
    If you’re gone - baby you need to come home
    Cuz there’s a little bit of something me
    In everything in you

    I think you’re so mean - I think we should try
    I think I could need - this in my life
    I think I’m just scared - do I talk too much
    I know this is wrong it’s a problem I’m dealing

    If you’re gone - maybe it’s time to go home
    There’s an awful lot of breathing room
    But I can hardly move
    If you’re gone - baby you need to come home
    Cuz there’s a little bit of something me
    In everything in you

    "Mad Season" by Matchbox 20

    I feel stupid - but I know it won’t last for long
    I’ve been guessing - I coulda been guessin’ wrong
    You don’t know me now
    I kinda thought that you should somehow
    Does that whole mad season got ya down

    I feel stupid but it’s something that comes and goes
    I’ve been changin’ - think it’s funny how now one knows
    We don’t talk about - the little things that we do without
    When that whole mad season comes around

    So why ya gotta stand there
    Looking like the answer now
    It seems to me - you’d come around
    I need you now
    Do you think you can cope
    You figured me out - I’m lost and I’m hopeless
    Bleeding and broken - though I’ve never spoken
    I come undone - in this mad season

    I feel stupid - but I think I been catchin’ on
    I feel ugly - but I know I still turn you on
    You seem colder now, torn apart, angry, turned around
    Will that whole mad season knock you down

    So are you gonna stand there
    Are you gonna help me out
    You need to be together now - I need you now
    Do you think you can cope
    You figured me out - I’m lost and I’m hopeless
    Bleeding and broken - though I’ve never spoken
    I come undone - in this mad season

    Now I’m cryin’ - isn’t that what you want
    I’m tryin’ to live my life on my own
    But I won’t
    At times - I do believe I am strong
    So someone tell me why, why, why
    Do i, i, I feel stupid
    And I came undone
    And I came undone

    I need you now
    Do you think you can cope
    You figured me out - I’m lost and I’m hopeless
    Bleeding and broken - though I’ve never spoken

    I need you now
    Do you think you can cope
    You figured me out - I’m a child and I’m hopeless
    Bleeding and broken - though I’ve never spoken
    I come undone - in this mad season

    In this mad season
    There’s been a mad season
    Been a mad season

    Her Ghost in the Fog-Cradle of Filth

    "The Moon, she hangs like a cruel portrait
    soft winds whisper the bidding of trees
    as this tragedy starts with a shattered glass heart
    and the Midnightmare trampling of dreams
    But on, no tears please
    Fear and pain may accompany Death
    But it is desire that shepherds it's certainty
    as We shall see..."

    She was divinity's creature
    That kissed in cold mirrors
    A Queen of Snow
    Far beyond compare
    Lips attuned to symmetry
    Sought Her everywhere
    Dark liqoured eyes
    An Arabian nightmare...

    She shone on watercolours
    Of my pondlife as pearl
    Until those who couldn't have Her
    Cut Her free of this World

    That fateful Eve when...
    The trees stank of sunset and camphor
    Their lanterns chased phantoms and threw
    An imquisitive glance, like the shadows they cast
    On my love picking rue by the light of the moon

    Putting reason to flight
    Or to death as their way
    They crept through woods mesmerized
    By the taffeta Ley
    Of Her hips that held sway
    Over all they surveyed
    Save a mist on the rise
    (A deadly blessing to hide)
    Her ghost in the fog

    They raped left...
    (Five men of God)
    ...Her ghost in the fog

    Dawn discovered Her there
    Beneath the Cedar's stare
    Silk dress torn, Her raven hair
    Flown to gown Her beauty bared
    Was starred with frost, I knew Her lost
    I wept 'til tears crept back to prayer

    She'd sworn Me vows in fragrant blood
    "Never to part
    Lest jealous Heaven stole our hearts"

    Then this I screamed:
    "Come back to Me for
    I was born in love with thee
    So why should fate stand inbetween?"

    And as I drowned Her gentle curves
    With dreams unsaid and final words
    I espied a gleam trodden to earth
    The Church bell tower key...

    The village mourned her by the by
    For She'd been a witch
    their Men had longed to try
    And I broke under Christ seeking guilty signs
    My tortured soul on ice

    A Queen of snow
    Far beyond compare
    Lips attuned to symmetry
    Sought Her everywhere
    Trappistine eyes
    An Arabian nightmare...

    She was Ersulie possessed
    Of a milky white skin
    My porcelain Yin
    A graceful Angel of Sin

    And so for Her...
    The breeze stank of sunset and camphor
    My lantern chased Her phantom and blew
    Their Chapel ablaze and all locked in to a pain
    Best reserved for judgement that their bible construed...

    Putting reason to flight
    Or to flame unashamed
    I swept form cries
    Mesmerized
    By the taffeta Ley
    Or Her hips that held sway
    Over all those at bay
    Save a mist on the rise
    A final blessing to hide
    Her ghost in the fog

    And I embraced
    Where lovers rot...
    Her ghost in the fog

    Her ghost in the fog

    "Existentialism On Prom Night" by Straylight Run (major props to anyone who knows this song :D)

    When the sun came up,
    We we're sleeping in,
    Sunk inside our blankets,
    Sprawled across the bed,
    And we we're dreaming,

    There are moments when,
    When I know it and
    The world revolves around us,
    And we're keeping it,
    Keeping it all going,
    This delicate balance,
    Vulnerable all knowing,

    Sing like you think no one's listening,
    You would kill for this,
    Just a little bit,
    Just a little bit,
    You would, kill for this

    Sing like you think no one's listening,
    You would kill for this,
    Just a little bit,
    Just a little bit,
    You would, you would...

    Sing me something soft,
    Sad and delicate,
    Or loud and out of key,
    Sing me anything,
    we're glad for what we've got,
    Done with what we've lost
    Our whole lives laid out right in front of us,

    Sing like you think no one's listening,
    You would kill for this,
    Just a little bit,
    Just a little bit,
    You would,

    Sing like you think no one's listening,
    You would kill for this,
    Just a little bit,
    Just a little bit,
    You would, you would....

    Sing me something soft,
    Sad and delicate,
    Or loud and out of key,
    Sing me anything.

    "Swing Life Away" by Rise Against (this one too :p)

    Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
    Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
    Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
    The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon
    Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow

    I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
    But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
    We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand....until you hold my hand

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

    We live on front porches and swing life away,
    We get by just fine here on minimum wage
    If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
    I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

    Swing life away [x4]

    Rose Blossom Punch - "Sleepily"

    Quietly I drown myself in dreams
    To find it all I’ve taken liberty to fall asleep
    Wanting everything

    If you awake to find it’s all the same
    I’ll try again
    I swear I’ll try again to fall asleep
    Wanting everything
    Just to be completely free

    At least believe there’s something else this time
    You know you’ll find me here asleep under this spell
    Who’ll notice?
    I’m wondering myself

    Now you gaze between love and despair
    It’s hard to see a look become a prayer to fall asleep
    Wanting everything
    Just to be completely free

    At least believe there’s something else this time
    You know you’ll find me here asleep under this spell
    Who’ll notice?
    I’m wondering myself

    All at once it occurred to me:
    It’s the way that I’ll ever be
    Well never mind
    What I meant to say was along the lines of making you stay
    And I whisper this as you walk away
    "At least believe in me"

    At least believe there’s something else this time
    You know you’ll find me here asleep under this spell
    Who’ll notice?
    I’m wondering myself

    Haha, I agree! I love "it's for the best"...tis actually the one I'm posting :D


    "It's For The Best" by Straylight Run (ofc :D)

    It takes more time than I've ever had,
    Drains the life from me,
    Makes me want to forget,
    As young as I was,
    I felt older back then,
    More disciplined,
    Stronger and certain,
    But I was scared to death of eternity,
    I was saved by grace,
    But destroyed by naivety,
    And I lied to myself,
    And said it was for the best,

    And now faith is replaced with a logic so cold
    I've disregarded what I was,
    Now that I'm older,
    And I know much more than I did back then,
    But the more I learn,
    The more I can't understand,
    And I've become content with this life that I lead,
    Where I drink to much and don't believe in much of anything,
    And I lie to myself,
    And say it's for the best,

    We're moving forward,
    But holding ourselves back,
    And we're waiting on something that will never come,

    We're moving forward,
    But holding ourselves back,
    And we're waiting on something that will never come,

    We're moving forward,
    But holding ourselves back,
    And we're waiting on something that will never come,

    We're moving forward,
    But holding ourselves back,
    And we're waiting on something that will never come,

    We're moving forward,
    But holding ourselves back,
    And we're waiting on something that will never come,

    We're moving forward,
    But holding ourselves back,
    And we're waiting on something that will never come.

    Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce

    If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that I'd like to do
    Is to save every day
    Til' eternity passes away
    Just to spend them with you

    If I could make days last forever
    If words could make wishes come true
    I'd save every day like a treasure and then
    Again, I would spend them with you

    Chorus:
    But there never seems to be enough time
    To do the things you want to do
    Once you find them
    I've looked around enough to know
    That you're the one I want to go
    Through time with

    If I had a box just for wishes
    And dreams that had never come true
    The box would be empty
    Except for the memory
    Of how they were answered by you

    B.Y.O.B. by System of a Down (omg this song pwns j00r soul)

    Why do they always send the poor

    Barbarisms by Barbaras
    With pointed heels
    Victorious victories kneel
    For brand new spankin' deals

    Marching forward hypocritic and
    Hypnotic computers
    You depend on our protection
    Yet you feed us lies from the tablecloth

    Everybody's going to the party have a real good time
    Dancing in the desert blowing up the sunshine

    Kneeling roses disappearing into
    Moses' dry mouth
    Breaking into Fort Knox stealing
    Our intentions

    Hangers sitting dripped in oil
    Crying freedom
    Handed to obsoletion
    Still you feed us lies from the tablecloth

    Everybody's going to the party have a real good time
    Dancing in the desert blowing up the sunshine

    Everybody's going to the party have a real good time
    Dancing in the desert blowing up the sunshine

    Blast off
    It's party time
    And we don't live in a fascist nation

    Blast off
    It's party time
    And where the f**k are you?

    Where the f**k are you?
    Where the f**k are you?

    Why don't presidents fight the war?
    Why do they always send the poor?

    Why don't presidents fight the war?
    Why do they always send the poor?

    Why do they always send the poor?
    Why do they always send the poor?
    Why do they always send the poor?

    Kneeling roses disappearing into
    Moses' dry mouth
    Breaking into Fort Knox stealing
    Our intentions

    Hangers sitting dripped in oil
    Crying freedom
    Handed to obsoletion,
    Still you feed us lies from the tablecloth

    Everybody's going to the party have a real good time
    Dancing in the desert blowing up the sunshine

    Everybody's going to the party have a real good time
    Dancing in the desert blowing up the sun

    Where the f**k are you?
    Where the f**k are you?

    Why don't presidents fight the war?
    Why do they always send the poor?

    Why don't presidents fight the war?
    Why do they always send the poor?

    Why do they always send the poor?
    Why do they always send the poor?
    They always send the poor
    They always send the poor

    "Baby Girl" by Sugarland

    They say this town,
    The stars stay up all night,
    Don't know can't see 'em,
    For the glow of the neon lights.
    And it's a long way from here,
    To the place where the home fires burn,
    Well it's 2,000 miles and one left turn.

    [chorus]
    Dear Mom and Dad,
    Please send money,
    I'm so broke that it ain't funny.
    I don't need much just enough to get me through.
    Please don't worry 'cause i'm alright.
    (i'm playin at the bar tonight)
    This time i'm gonna make our dreams come true...
    Well I love you more than anything in the world.
    Love,
    Your Baby Girl

    Black top blue sky,
    big town full of little white lies,
    Everybody's your friend you can never be sure.
    They'll promise fancy cars and diamond rings,
    All sorts of shiny things.
    Girl, you'll remember what your knees are for.

    [repeat chorus]

    I know that i'm on my way,
    When I can tell every time I play.
    And I know it's worth all the dues I pay,
    When I can write to you and say...

    Dear Mom and Dad,
    I'll send money. I'm so rich that It ain't funny.
    Well it oughtta be more then enough to get you through.
    Please don't worry cause I'm alright,
    I'm stayin here at the Ritz tonight,
    Whatta ya know we made our dreams come true!
    And there are fancy cars and diamond rings,
    But you know that they don't mean a thing,
    Well they all add up to nothin compared to you,
    Well, remember me in ribbons and curls...
    I still love you more than anything in the world
    Love,
    Your Baby Girl

    (Your baby girl.....
    Dear Mom and Dad,
    Please send money,
    i'm so broke that it ain't funny,
    don't need much just enough to get me through,
    Please don't worry cause i'm alright,
    i'm playin here at the bar tonight...
    Dreams come true....)
