    This is not a riddle
    But it's meant to entertain.
    I'll be your loyal Apostle
    Just send me in to take the blame.

    Well what would you expect to say?
    It never mattered anyway

    There'll be a site and an invisible light
    Shown down on them and took them in
    There'll be a time when, maybe tonight
    Temptations win and I give in

    This is not a puzzle or mainframe
    But it's meant to strengthen your faith
    And each time the night falls upon us
    We always end up the same

    Well what would you expect to say?
    It never mattered anyway

    There'll be a site and an invisible light
    Shown down on them and took them in
    There'll be a time when, maybe tonight
    Temptations win and I give in

    Were we not born into original sin?
    What you ask for is what you get
    And what you were given
    So fold your hands and get down on your knees

    There'll be a site and an invisible light
    Shown down on them and took them in
    There'll be a time when maybe tonight
    Temptations win and I give in

    Bright Eyes, No Lies, Just Love

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuQLbXURL4Y&feature=related"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuQLbXURL4Y&feature=related[/YOUTUBE]


    It was in the march of the winter I turned 17
    that I bought those pills
    I thought I would need
    and I wrote a letter to my family
    said it's not your fault
    and you've been good to me
    just lately I've been feeling
    like I don't belong
    like the ground is not mine to walk upon
    and I've heard that music
    echo through the house
    where my grandmother drank
    by herself
    and I sat watching a flower
    as it was withering
    I was embarrased by it's honesty
    so I'd prefer to be remembered as a smiling face
    not this fucking wreck
    that's taken it's place

    so please forgive what I have done
    no you can't stay mad at the setting sun
    cause we all get tired I mean eventually
    and there's nothing left to do but sleep

    but spring came bearing sunlight
    those persuasive rays
    so I gave myself a few more days
    my salvation it came, quite suddenly
    when Justin spoke very plainly
    he said "Of course it's your decision,
    but just so you know,
    if you decide to leave,
    soon I will follow"

    I wrote this for a baby
    who has yet to be born
    my brother's first child
    I hope that womb's not too warm
    cause it's cold out here
    and it'll be quite a shock
    to breathe this air
    to discover loss
    so I'd like to make some changes
    before you arrive
    so when your new eyes meet mine
    they won't see no lies
    just love.
    just love.

    I will be pure,
    No, no, I know I will be pure.
    Like snow- like gold
    like snow- like gold
    my etsy Morphochroma

    I know you think I'm crazy,
    but most people they can't tell.

    Fix You - Coldplay

    When you try your best but you don't succeed
    When you get what you want but not what you need
    When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
    Stuck in reverse

    And the tears come streaming down your face
    When you lose something you can't replace
    When you love someone but it goes to waste
    Could it be worse?

    Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you

    And high up above earth or down below
    When you're too in love to let it go
    But if you never try you'll never know
    Just what you're worth

    Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you

    Tears stream, down your face
    When you lose something you cannot replace
    Tears stream down your face and I...

    Tears stream, down your face
    I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
    Tears stream down your face and I...

    Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you.

    oooh... this thread!

    the world needs more punk love songs about the simple joys of being with someone

    Perfect Day- The Suicide Machines

    When I wake up in the morning
    When the sun comes up
    I want to tell you how I feel
    And I feel no one's luckier than me

    Perfect days rarely come my way
    But I've had a few and they've been with you
    I'll hang around because I want some more
    And I want you to have these days, too


    We were downtown drinking on a Wednesday night
    You know it sucks to be alone
    Then I told myself I was never going home

    When I wake up in the morning
    When the sun comes up
    I want to tell you how I feel
    And I feel no one's luckier than me

    Yesterday was a perfect day
    Its times like these that you never forget
    I hope you're feeling the same way too
    'Cause I know I don't have any regrets

    It was a Thursday morning
    And the sun was shining
    It felt good to be alive
    A perfect day with you by my side

    When I wake up in the morning
    When the sun comes up
    I want to tell you how I feel
    And I feel no one's luckier than me

    When the evening rolls around
    You know I love just to sit around with time on our side
    I feel so alive with you

    The sun comes up, sometimes its not enough
    But when I'm with you, it can rain all day
    I'd like to think you feel the same way too
    'Cause to me there is no other way

    We were laying in bed on a Friday night
    It felt good not to be alone
    And when I look at you
    I feel like I'm at home

    When I wake up in the morning
    When the sun comes up
    I want to tell you how I feel
    And I feel no one's luckier than me
    When I lay down in the evening
    When the sun goes down
    Don't leave me alone
    'Cause in your arms, I feel like I'm at home
    “Oh, we're always alright. You remember that. We happen to other people.” -Terry Pratchett

    One of my favorites:


    Ben Folds Five, "Army"

    Well I thought about the army
    Dad said, Son you're fuckin' high
    And I thought, yeah there's a first for everything
    So I took my old man's advice
    Three sad semesters
    It was only 15 grand spent in bed
    I thought about the army
    I dropped out and joined a band instead

    Grew a moustache and a mullet
    Got a job at Chick-fil-a
    Citing artistic differences
    The band broke up in May
    And in June reformed without me
    And they'd got a different name
    I nuked another grandma's apple pie
    And hung my head in shame, oh....

    Been thinkin' a lot today
    Been thinkin' a lot today

    Oh, I think I'll write a screenplay
    Oh, I think I'll take it to L.A.
    Oh, I think I'll get it done yesterday
    Ah, shit!

    In this time of introspection
    On the eve of my election
    I say to my reflection
    God please spare me more rejection!
    'Cause my peers they criticize me
    And my ex-wives all despise me
    Try to put it all behind me
    But my redneck past is nipping at my heels

    I've been thinking a lot today
    I've been thinking a lot today
    I've been thinking a lot today
    I thought about the army...

    Sometime Around Midnight - The Airborne Toxic Event

    And it starts, sometime around midnight
    Or at least that’s when you lose yourself, for a minute or two
    As you stand, under the bar lights
    And the band plays some song about forgetting yourself for a while
    And the piano’s this melancholy soundtrack to her smile
    And that white dress she’s wearing,
    you haven’t seen her for a while

    But you know, that she’s watching
    She’s laughing, she’s turning
    She’s holding her tonic like a cross
    The room’s suddenly spinning
    She walks up and asks how you are
    So you can smell her perfume,
    You can see her lying naked in your arms

    And so there’s a change, in your emotions
    And all these memories come rushing
    like feral waves to your mind
    Of the curl of your bodies,
    like two perfect circles entwined
    And you feel hopeless and homeless
    and lost in the haze of the wine

    Then she leaves, with someone you don’t know
    But she makes sure you saw her
    She looks right at you and bolts
    As she walks out the door,
    your blood boiling, your stomach in ropes
    Oh and when your friends say,
    “What is it? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”

    Then you walk, under the streetlights
    And you’re too drunk to notice,
    that everyone is staring at you
    You just don’t care what you look like,
    the world is falling around you

    You just have to see her
    You just have to see her
    You just have to see her
    You just have to see her
    You just have to see her
    You know that she’ll break you in two
    a little less conversation, a little more action please

    Visions occupy my synaptic space
    Command and shake, to illustrate my mind's landscape
    The tall grass, the low plains, the mountainous ridges
    Thickets among the forests, rivers beneath the bridges
    Presence of hilltops, lit up with tree tops
    Eavesdrop; and hear the incline of sunshine, nine
    Stones in orbit, refuse to forfeit
    They all form a cipher, and they came to observe it
    I follow suit, and face it, embrace it
    Shining bright, but still I'm careful not to waste it
    Destined to rise, because I'm basement adjacent
    Spirit is still so just chill and be patient

    no, I can't buy it, I mean how can I believe

    mislead and fooled
    we've got to face it..

    How Far We've Come - Matchbox Twenty

    Waking up at the start of the end of the world,
    But it's feeling just like every other morning before,
    Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if it's gone,
    The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour
    And I started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
    Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

    I believe the world is burning to the ground
    Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come
    Well I believe it all is coming to an end
    Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come

    I think it turned ten o'clock but I don't really know
    And I can't remember caring for an hour or so
    Started crying and I couldn't stop myself
    I started running but there's no where to run to
    I sat down on the street took a look at myself
    Said where you going man you know the world is headed for hell
    Say your goodbyes if you've got someone you can say goodbye to

    I believe the world is burning to the ground
    Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come

    Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
    Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come

    It's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
    There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
    It was cool cool, it was just all cool
    Now it's over for me and it's over for you
    Well it's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
    There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
    Well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
    Now it's over for me and it's over for you

    I believe the world is burning to the ground
    Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come
    Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
    Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come
    Let's see how far we've come...

    I've got Matchbox 20 on the brain tonight:

    Push
    She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough
    I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
    And I don't know if I've ever been really loved
    By hand that's touched me, well I feel like something's gonna give
    And I'm a little bit angry,
    well

    This ain't over, no not here, not while I still need you around
    You don't owe me, we might change
    Yeah we just might feel good

    (Chorus)
    I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
    I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
    I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted, yeah I will, I will

    Well I will

    She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me
    Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is gonna hurt ya
    And I don't know why you couldn't just stay with me
    You couldn't stand to be near me
    When my face don't seem to want to shine
    'cuz It's a little bit dirty well

    Don't just stand there, say nice things to me
    I've been cheated I've been wronged
    you,
    And you don't know me, I can't change
    I won't do anything at all

    (Chorus)
    I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
    I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
    I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted, yeah I will, I will

    Oh but don't bowl me over
    Just wait a minute well it kinda fell apart, things get so crazy, crazy
    Don't rush this baby, don't rush this Baby, baby

    (Chorus)
    I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
    I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
    I wanna take you for granted, yeah, yeah, yeah
    I wanna take you, take you, yeah, well I will, I will, I will, I will
    I will, I will, I will, Yeah, yeah, push you around,
    I'll drag you down, I wanna push you around
    Well I will
