    The Smiths - Shoplifters of the World Unite

    Learn to love me
    Assemble the ways
    Now, today, tomorrow and always
    My only weakness is a list of crime
    My only weakness is ... well, never mind, never mind

    Oh, shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Hand it over
    Hand it over
    Hand it over

    Learn to love me
    And assemble the ways
    Now, today, tomorrow, and always
    My only weakness is a listed crime
    But last night the plans of a future war
    Was all I saw on Channel Four

    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Hand it over
    Hand it over
    Hand it over

    A heartless hand on my shoulder
    A push - and it's over
    Alabaster crashes down
    (Six months is a long time)
    Tried living in the real world
    Instead of a shell
    But before I began ...
    I was bored before I even began

    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Unite and take over
    Shoplifters of the world
    Take over

    Modest Mouse

    "So Much Beauty In Dirt"

    Out of breath and out of cash, find yourself watching M.A.S.H., every night on the couch. Woman says let's take a drive down south, roll down the windows and open our mouths taste where we are and play the music loud. Stop the car, lay on the grass, the planets spin and we watch space pass. Walk a direction, see where we get. I never knew nothin' so there's nothin' to forget. Get real drunk and ride our bikes. There's so much beauty it could make you cry. The rich get money but never what they want. Find ourselves a new place to haunt. Climb up the fire escape do it 'til the ground looks far away. Go night swimming, leave our clothes on the ground, when we get busted we just stand there proud. It's the truth we all been wrong make it up and let's move on. Playing cards we all get to act sly there's so much beauty it could make you cry.

    "In the Aeroplane over the Sea"

    What a beautiful face
    I have found in this place
    That is circling all round the sun
    What a beautiful dream
    That could flash on the screen
    In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
    Soft and sweet
    Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

    And one day we will die
    And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
    But for now we are young
    Let us lay in the sun
    And count every beautiful thing we can see
    Love to be
    In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

    Anna's ghost all around
    Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
    Soft and sweet
    How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

    Now how I remember you
    How I would push my fingers through
    Your mouth to make those muscles move
    That made your voice so smooth and sweet
    And now we keep where we don't know
    All secrets sleep in winter clothes
    With one you loved so long ago
    Now he don't even know his name

    What a beautiful face
    I have found in this place
    That is circling all round the sun
    And when we meet on a cloud
    I'll be laughing out loud
    I'll be laughing with everyone I see
    Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all

    One Headlight - The Wallflowers

    So long ago, I don't remember when
    That's when they say I lost my only friend
    Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
    As I listened through the cemetery trees

    I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
    The long broken arm of human law
    Now it always seemed such a waste
    She always had a pretty face
    So I wondered how she hung around this place

    Chorus:
    Hey, come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me & Cinderella,
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight

    She said it's cold
    It feels like Independence Day
    And I can't break away from this parade
    But there's got to be an opening
    Somewhere here in front of me
    Through this maze of ugliness and greed
    And I seen the sun up ahead
    At the county line bridge
    Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
    We'll run until she's out of breath
    She ran until there's nothin' left
    She hit the end-it's just her window ledge

    (chorus)

    Well this place is old
    It feels just like a beat up truck
    I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
    Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
    This place is always such a mess
    Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
    I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
    Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
    But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
    I think her death it must be killin' me

    (chorus)


    Paul Simon - Graceland

    The Mississippi Delta was shining
    Like a National guitar,
    I am following the river
    Down the highway
    Through the cradle of the civil war,

    I'm going to Graceland
    Graceland
    In Memphis Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland,

    Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland,
    My traveling companion is nine years old
    He is the child of my first marriage,
    But I've reason to believe
    We both will be received
    In Graceland,

    She comes back to tell me she's gone,
    As if I didn't know that
    As if I didn't know my own bed,
    As if I'd never noticed,
    The way she brushed her hair from her forehead,
    And she said losing love
    Is like a window in your heart,
    Everybody sees you're blown apart,
    Everybody sees the wind blow,

    I'm going to Graceland,
    Memphis Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland,
    Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland,

    And my traveling companions
    Are ghosts and empty sockets
    I'm looking at ghosts and empties,
    But I've reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland,

    There is a girl in New York City,
    Who calls herself the human trampoline,
    And sometimes when I'm falling flying
    Or tumbling in turmoil I say
    Whoa so this is what she means,
    She means we're bouncing into Graceland,
    And I see losing love
    Is like a window in your heart,
    Everybody sees you're blown apart,
    Everybody feels the wind blow,

    In Graceland Graceland,
    I'm going to Graceland,
    For reasons I cannot explain
    There's some part of me wants to see
    Graceland,
    And I may be obliged to defend
    Every love every ending
    Or maybe there's no obligations now,
    Maybe I've a reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    (Pause)

    Woah in graceland graceland graceland
    i'm going to graceland

    Franz Ferdinand - The Fallen

    Some say you're trouble, boy
    Just because you like to destroy
    All the things that bring the idiots joy
    Well, what's wrong with a little destruction?

    And the Kunst won't talk to you
    Because you kissed St Rollox Adieu
    Because you robbed a supermarket or two
    Well, who gives a damn about the prophets of Tesco?

    Did I see you in a limousine
    Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
    Turn the rich into wine
    Walk on the mean
    For the fallen walk among us
    Walk among us
    Never judge us
    Yeah we're all...

    Up now and get 'em, boy
    Up now and get 'em, boy
    Drink to the devil and death at the doctors

    Did I see you in a limousine
    Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
    Five thousand users fed today
    As you feed us
    Won't you lead us
    To be blessed

    So we stole and drank Champagne
    On the seventh seal you said you never feel pain
    "I never feel pain, won't you hit me again?"
    "I need a bit of black and blue to be a rotation"

    In my blood I feel the bubbles burst
    There was a flash of fist, an eyebrow burst
    You've a lazy laugh and a red white shirt
    I fell to the floor fainting at the sight of blood

    Did I see you in a limousine
    Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
    Turn the rich into wine
    Walk on the mean
    Be they Magdalene or virgin you've already been
    You've already been and we've already seen
    That the fallen are the virtuous among us
    Walk among us
    Never judge us to be blessed

    So I'm sorry if I ever resisted
    I never had a doubt you ever existed
    I only have a problem when people insist on
    Taking their hate and placing it on your name

    Some say you're trouble, boy
    Just because you like to destroy
    You are the word, the word is 'destroy'
    I break this bottle and think of you fondly

    Did I see you in a limousine
    Flinging out the fish and the unleavened
    To the whore in a hostel
    Or the scum of a scheme
    Turn the rich into wine
    Walk on the mean
    It's not a jag in the arm
    It's a nail in the beam
    On this barren Earth
    You scatter your seed
    Be they Magdalene or virgin
    You've already been
    Yeah, you've already been
    We've already seen
    That the fallen are the virtuous among us
    Walk among us
    If you judge us
    We're all damned

    On The Beach
    Neil Young

    The world is turnin',
    I hope it don't turn away,
    The world is turnin',
    I hope it don't turn away.
    All my pictures are fallin'
    from the wall where
    I placed them yesterday.
    The world is turnin',
    I hope it don't turn away.

    I need a crowd of people,
    but I can't face them
    day to day,
    I need a crowd of people,
    but I can't face them
    day to day.
    Though my problems
    are meaningless,
    that don't make them
    go away.
    I need a crowd of people,
    but I can't face them
    day to day.

    I went to the radio interview,
    but I ended up alone
    at the microphone,
    I went to the radio interview,
    but I ended up alone
    at the microphone.
    Now I'm livin'
    out here on the beach,
    but those seagulls are
    still out of reach.
    I went to the radio interview,
    but I ended up alone
    at the microphone.

    Get out of town,
    think I'll get out of town,
    Get out of town,
    think I'll get out of town.
    I head for the sticks
    with my bus and friends,
    I follow the road,
    though I don't know
    where it ends.
    Get out of town, get out of town,
    think I'll get out of town.

    'Cause the world is turnin',
    I don't want to
    see it turn away.

    This is one of my favorite songs by the Clash. I've never found a version of the lyrics that captures the rhythm and fluid rhyme scheme that make it unique. This is my version of the lyrics where I've tried my best.

    Car Jamming

    Tonight they're closing up the world
    'N sweeping smoke from cigarettes
    And what is that? Funky multi-national anthem
    rocking from a thousand King Kong cassette decks?

    And then a shy boy from Missouri. Boots blown off in a '60s war
    Riding aluminium crutches. Now he knows the welfare kindness
    'N Agent Orange color blindness. As he works from door to door

    The violence in the carpets
    The arrow of his wife
    Drives the slum-bum dweller
    To grind his hunting knife

    In homesteads of cigar box
    the radios hive like bees
    The body in the icebox
    has no date for freeze

    Selling is what selling sells
    But only saints on the Seven Avenues
    can sell the seven hells

    Fanning out the drug afflicted leperizing zone
    Once inside, the executive
    He never leaves his home

    Now gorillas drag their victims
    Hyenas try to sue
    Snakes find grass in concrete
    There is no city zoo

    By ventilation units
    Where towers meet the street
    The ragged stand in bags
    Soaking heat up through their feet

    This was the only kindness!
    And it was accidental too.

    Now shaking single engined planes
    A Trafficking stereos from Cuba
    Buzzed the holy zealot mass
    And drowned out Missa Luba

    And drowned out Missa Luba
    And drowned out Missa Luba
    And drowned out Missa Luba

    I thought I saw Lauren Bacall
    I thought I saw Lauren Bacall
    (I swear) Hey fellas, hey fellas!
    Lauren Bacall
    In a Car Jam
    Yeah I don't believe it
    Ah yeah positively absolutely.

    Beck - Pay No Mind(Snoozer)
    Tonight the city is full of morgues
    And all the toilets are overflowing
    There's shopping malls
    Coming out of the walls
    As we walk out among the manure

    That's why
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind

    Give the finger to the rock 'n' roll singer
    As he's dancing upon your paycheck
    The sales climb high
    Through the garbage-pail sky
    Like a giant dildo crushing the sun

    That's why
    I pay no mind
    Sleep in slime
    I just got signed

    So get out your lead-pipe pipe dreams
    Get out your ten-foot flags
    The insects are huge
    And the poison's all been used
    And the drugs won't kill your day job
    Honey

    That's why
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind
    I pay no mind

    That's why
    I pay no mind

    Camera Obscura - If Looks Could Kill

    Tell me where it all went wrong
    Maybe I can make it better
    Tell me where it all went wrong
    Cuz you know that you really upset her
    When you act like a man who is cross
    with every woman he's never had
    If it's true looks could kill
    and you will be the first to make me mad
    then you've gotta go
    maybe you've gotta go

    Is this the kind of fate you could contemplate,
    a breakdown at my very sight?
    I promise hidden words of tenderness
    in every single line that I write.
    Still, you act like a man who is cross
    with every woman he's never had.
    If it's true looks could kill
    and you will be the first to make me mad
    then you've gotta go
    maybe you've gotta go

    Tell me where it all went wrong
    Maybe I can make it better

    Cuz you act like a man who is cross
    with every woman he's never had...
    If it's true looks could kill
    and you will be the first to make me mad
    then you've gotta go
    maybe you've gotta go

    If it's true
    If it's true
    Yeah
    Then it's true
    Yeah it's true
    Yeah

    Interpol - Not Even Jail

    I will lay down my glasses
    I will lay down in houses
    If things come alive

    I'll subtract pain by ounces
    Yeah, I will start painting houses
    If things come alive

    I promise to commit no acts of violence
    Be it physical or otherwise
    If things come alive

    I'll say it now
    I'll say it now
    I'll say it now
    Oh I'll say it now
    Because I want it now

    When personality is scar tissue
    It travels south with disuse
    I'm subtle like a lion's cage
    Such a cautious display
    Remember take hold of your time here
    Give some meanings to the means
    To your end

    Not even jail

    We marshal in the days of longing
    We tremble like anyone's children
    And winter was the fire

    I'm erring on the side of caution
    Betraying all the symptom
    But girl you shake it right

    I will bounce to all the lack of silence
    We will freeload to the beats of science
    And girl you shake it right

    I'll say it now

    Oh, but hold it still, darling, and your hair's so pretty
    Can't you feel all the warmth of my sincerity
    You make motion when you cry
    You're making peoples lives feel less private
    Don't take time away
    You make motion when you cry
    We all hold hands
    Can we all hold hands
    When we make new plans

    I pretend like no one else
    To try to control myself
    I'm subtle like a lion's cage
    Such a cautious display
    Remember take hold of your time here
    Give some meanings to the means
    To your end

    Not even jail

    Citizen Cope-Sideways

    You know it ain't easy
    For these thoughts here to leave me
    There's no words to describe it
    In French or in English
    Well, diamonds they fade
    And flowers they bloom
    And I'm telling you
    These feelings won't go away
    They've been knockin' me sideways
    They've been knockin' me out lately
    Whenever you come around me
    These feelings won't go away
    They've been knockin' me sideways
    I keep thinking in a moment that
    Time will take them away
    But these feelings won't go away

    Weezer-Only In Dreams

    You can't resist her.
    She's in your bones.
    She is your marrow
    And your ride home.

    You can't avoid her.
    She's in the air... in the air
    In between molecules of
    Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide.

    Only in dreams
    We see what it means.
    Reach out our hands.
    Hold onto hers.
    But when we wake
    It's all been erased.
    And so it seems
    Only in dreams.

    You walk up to her.
    Ask her to dance.
    She says, "Hey, baby, I just might take the chance."
    You say, "It's a good thing
    That you float in the air... in the air.
    That way there's no way I will crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces."


    Enigma-Return To Innocence


    Love - Devotion
    Feeling - Emotion
    Love - Devotion
    Feeling - Emotion
    Don't be afraid to be weak
    Don't be too proud to be strong
    Just look into your heart my friend
    That will be the return to yourself
    The return to innocence
    If you want, then start to laugh
    If you must, then start to cry
    Be yourself don't hide
    Just believe in destiny
    Don't care what people say
    Just follow your own way
    Don't give up and use the chance
    To return to innocence
    That's not the beginning of the end
    That's the return to yourself
    The return to innocence
    Don't care what people say
    Follow just your own way Follow just your own way
    Don't give up, don't give up
    To return, to return to innocence.
    If you want then laugh
    If you must then cry
    Be yourself don't hide
    Just believe in destiny.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Holy Smoke

    You made your bet, that's where you lie
    No pearly gates when you die
    We tried to teach, you didn't learn
    You're going down, you're gonna burn
    Fast at passing judgment and you're quick to cast a stone
    Hypocrite talking shit, leave me alone
    Thump the book and twist the word
    You're setting sinners straight
    Point your finger, wag your tongue
    then pass around the plate
    I've made my bet that's where I'll lie,
    Won't see the gates when I die
    And I've been told I'll never learn,
    I'm going down I'm gonna
    Screaming demons all hell broke loose
    and other dark remarks
    You say that's Satan's waiting for me
    but I don't give a fuck
    If words and music tick you off
    then you're the one who's sick
    But I think it fucking followers that really make you tick
    As far as I can tell I'm going to hell
    As far as I can see, you're coming with me
    You made your bet that's where you'll lie
    No pearly gates when you die
    We tried to teach, you didn't learn
    You're going down, you're gonna burn
    Holy smoke! is this a joke?
    I mean man you're on the move,
    Shut 'em up and shut 'em down
    If you don't approve
    Cuss and curse and stuff your purse
    And tell me where I'm goin'
    Holy cow, man, don't stop now, man,
    Your bank account is growin'
    You made your bet that's where you'll lie
    No pearly gates when you die
    We tried to teach, you didn't learn
    You're going down, you're gonna burn
    You made your bet that's where you'll lie
    Thanks God I've got a place to sleep
    No pearly gates when you die,
    why should I worry now or cry
    You know I'm not concerned
    You're going down, you're gonna burn
