    Nellie McKay ( ) - Change the World

    I wake up
    I am bored
    to my pictures I implore
    should I go or stay
    what should I be today
    make a leap
    go to sleep
    should I cry or should I weep
    where should I go from here
    am I hetero or queer
    oh, self discovery
    what joy it is
    I need recovery
    caffeinated fizz
    should I run
    should I hide
    happy pill or suicide
    contribute or refute
    have a kid
    then call it cute
    oh, self -esteeming, in suburbia
    my shelf is teeming
    a pet named Chia

    (chorus)
    oh what should I say
    what should I pray
    who would care if I went ahead
    and punched the wall
    oh what do I care
    what should I wear
    what do I care
    what does it matter
    if I change the world at all

    I listen to some rap
    I give myself a slap
    come on use the pain
    drink up from the rain
    just arise unsupervised
    healthy wealthy you know wise
    dance around
    make a sound
    let yourself become unwound
    god, I'm so German
    have to have a plan
    please Ethel Merman help me out this jam
    ding a ling
    ring a ding
    anything just do something
    feelin' dense
    on the fence
    civil disobedience
    come on now's the hour
    go and deviate
    can't you feel the power
    hope you appreciate

    (chorus)

    OK Dr. Phil
    ready for my pill
    flex my psychic muscle
    guess we'd better hustle
    people are dying now
    do something you ugly cow
    sorry for myself again
    me, my wallet and my men
    Jesus I love you
    Frank I love you, too
    hit the road together
    get out of the zoo
    no exit
    just a pit
    apocalyptic and a zit
    hurry now
    pack your bags
    adieu you mall scalawags
    got my sneakers velcroed
    snap my bookbag on
    goodbye little zipcode
    how can I go wrong

    (chorus)

    what does it matter
    if I change the world at all


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    The Who - Pictures of Lily

    I used to wake up in the morning
    I used to feel so bad
    I got so sick of having sleepless nights
    I went and told my dad

    He said, "Son now here's some little something"
    And stuck them on my wall
    And now my nights ain't quite so lonely
    In fact I, I don't feel bad at all

    Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful
    Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night
    Pitcures of Lily solved my childhood problems
    Pictures of Lily helped me feel alright

    Pictures of Lily
    Lily, oh Lily
    Lily, oh Lily
    Pictures of Lily

    And then one day things weren't quite so fine
    I fell in love with Lily
    I asked my dad where Lily I could find
    He said, "Son, now don't be silly"

    "She's been dead since 1929"
    Oh, how I cried that night
    If only I'd been born in Lily's time
    It would have been alright

    Pictures of Lily made my life so wonderful
    Pictures of Lily helped me sleep at night

    For me and Lily are together in my dreams
    And I ask you, "Hey mister, have you ever seen"
    "Pictures of Lily?"

    Tom Waits - Nirvana

    Not much chance, completely cut loose from purpose,
    he was a young man riding a bus through North Carolina on the way to somewhere.
    And it began to snow.

    And the bus stopped at a little cafe in the hills and the passengers entered.
    And he sat at the counter with the others, and he ordered, the food arrived.
    And the meal was particularly good.
    And the coffee.

    The waitress was unlike the women he had known.
    She was unaffected, and there was a natural humor which came from her.
    And the fry cook said crazy things.
    And the dishwasher in back laughed a good clean pleasant laugh.

    And the young man watched the snow through the window.
    And he wanted to stay in that cafe forever.
    The curious feeling swam through him that everything was beautiful there.
    And it would always stay beautiful there.

    And then the bus driver told the passengers that it was time to board.
    And the young man thought: "I'll just stay here, I'll just stay here."
    And then he rose and he followed the others into the bus.
    He found his seat and looked at the cafe through the window.
    And then the bus moved off, down a curve, downward, out of the hills.

    And the young man looked straight forward.
    And he heard the other passengers speaking of other things,
    or they were reading or trying to sleep.
    And they hadn't noticed the magic.
    And the young man put his head to one side,
    closed his eyes, and pretended to sleep.

    There was nothing else to do,
    just to listen to the sound of the engine,
    and the sound of the tires
    in the snow
    I know a girl, she's one of a kind
    But the poor little thing, she's going out of her mind
    There's something you forgot - there's a reason why she's lost
    Cos baby she don't want to be found

    Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams

    Sweet dreams are made of these
    Who am I to disagree

    Some of them want to use you
    Some of them want to get used by you
    Some of them want to abuse you
    Some of them want to be abused

    Sweet dreams are made of these
    Who am I to disagree
    Traveled the world and the seven seas
    Everybody's looking for something

    Some of them want to use you
    Some of them want to get used by you
    Some of them want to abuse you
    Some of them want to be abused

    I wanna use you and abuse you
    I wanna know what's inside you

    Hold your head up, movin' on
    Keep your head up, movin' on
    Repeat Three Times)
    Movin' on!!

    Kevin Gilbert is one of my favorite musicians and his lyrics scream ENFP. (he died of autoerotic asphyxiation btw)


    JOYTOWN
    by Kevin Gilbert


    Fathers they have big hands and they pat gently on your head
    Mothers always make sure everyone is happy and well fed
    And everything is instant, no one has to wait to long
    And Lennon never has to sing a Paul McCartney song

    We're living here in Joytown, the City of the Sun
    And everyone loves everyone loves every single one

    No one sells his roommate's stuff so he can get a fix
    And no one fears the darkness, no one fears the number six
    Everyone talks openly of great things they have read
    And no one ever says the things that are better left unsaid
    And everyone has someone they can share their sadness with
    No one leaves the slightest doubt, no one takes the fifth

    Jesus and Muhammed and Buddha live in town
    Zoraster and Ba'h'aula and Moses hangs around
    And when they get together they are quite a noisy crew
    They laugh about their legacies over cigarettes and brew

    Senator McCarthy enjoys a book by Marx
    And people tear down parking lots
    So they can build more parks
    And Jimi plays the perfect note that never seems to end
    and Martin Luther King has got a blond white girlfriend

    We're singing here in Joytown
    Won't you come and sing along?
    We'll never tell you that you ain't singing the right notes,
    Never criticize your song.

    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Default Some Fave Lyrics

    Bright Eyes "A Perfect Sonnet"

    Lately I've been wishing I had one desire
    Something that would make me never want another
    Something that would make it so that nothing mattered
    All would be clear then
    But I guess I'll have to settle for a few brief moments
    And watch it all dissolve into a single second
    And try to write it down into a perfect sonnet
    or one foolish line
    'Cause that's all that you'll get so you'll have to accept
    You are here then you're gone
    But I believe that lovers should be tied together and
    Thrown into the ocean in the worst of weather
    and left there to drown
    Left there to drown in their innocence
    But as for me I'm coming to the final chapter
    I read all of the pages and there is still no answer
    Only all that was before I know must soon come after
    That is the only way it can be
    So I stand in the sun
    And I breathe with my lungs
    Trying to spare me the weight of the truth
    Saying everything you've ever seen was just a mirror
    And you've spent your whole life sweating in an endless fever
    And now you are laying in a bathtub full of freezing water
    Wishing you were a ghost
    But once you knew a girl and you named her Lover
    And danced with her in kitchens through the greenest summer
    But autumn came, She disappeared
    You can't remember where she said she was going to
    But you know that she's gone 'cause she left you a song
    That you don't want to sing
    We're singing I believe that lovers should be chained together
    And thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
    And left there to burn
    Left there to burn in their arrogance
    But as for me I'm coming to my final failure
    I've killed myself with changes trying to make things better
    But I ended up becoming something other than what I had planned to be
    Now I believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
    And layed entwined together on a bed of clover
    And left there to sleep
    Left there to dream of their happiness



    No Doubt "Simple Kind Of Life"

    For a long time I was in love
    Not only in love, I was obsessed
    With a friendship that no one else could touch
    It didn't work out, I'm covered in shells

    And all I wanted was the simple things
    A simple kind of life
    And all I needed was a simple man
    So I could be a wife

    I'm so ashamed, I've been so mean
    I don't know how it got to this point
    I always was the one with all the love
    You came along, I'm hunting you down

    Like a sick domestic abuser looking for a fight
    And all I wanted was the simple things
    A simple kind of life

    If we met tomorrow for the very first time
    Would it start all over again?
    Would I try to make you mine?

    I always thought I'd be a mom
    Sometimes I wish for a mistake
    The longer that I wait the more selfish that I get
    You seem like you'd be a good dad

    Now all those simple things are simply too complicated for my life
    How'd I get so faithful to my freedom?
    A selfish kind of life
    When all I ever wanted was the simple things
    A simple kind of life



    Joni Mitchell "A Case of You"

    Just before our love got lost you said
    I am as constant as a northern star
    And I said, constant in the darkness
    Wheres that at?
    If you want me Ill be in the bar

    On the back of a cartoon coaster
    In the blue tv screen light
    I drew a map of canada
    Oh canada
    And your face sketched on it twice

    Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
    Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
    Oh I could drink a case of you
    I could drink a case of you darling
    And I would still be on my feet
    Oh Id still be on my feet

    Oh I am a lonely painter
    I live in a box of paints
    Im frightened by the devil
    And Im drawn to those ones that aint afraid
    I remember that time that you told me, you said
    Love is touching souls
    Surely you touched mine
    Cause part of you pours out of me
    In these lines from time to time

    Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
    And you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
    Oh I could drink a case of you
    I could drink a case of you darling
    Still Id be on my feet
    And still be on my feet

    I met a woman
    She had a mouth like yours
    She knew your life
    She knew your devils and your deeds
    And she said
    Color go to him, stay with him if you can
    Oh but be prepared to bleed
    Oh but you are in my blood youre my holy wine
    Oh and you taste so bitter, bitter and so sweet
    Oh I could drink a case of you darling
    Still Id be on my feet
    Id still be on my feet



    Rainer Maria "Viva Anger, Viva Hate"

    and so, gradually, i'm trying
    do you know how hard?
    to integrate the past with now.
    i don't believe in fate.
    there's no forgiveness,
    there must be something more.
    i'm convinced,
    regardless of all the times
    they said that i should forget everything.
    now i'm not so sure that i can do anything.
    this broken scene with me above you above me.
    i feel broken. didn't you hear me?
    the basement floods, and all the magazines are wet.
    what's left to salvage?

    ...so much more to come

    (I love those Bittersweet Symphony and Mad World lyrics, great songs.)

    Beautiful - Eminem

    Lately I've been hard to reach
    I've been too long on my own
    Everybody has a private world
    Where they can be alone
    Are you calling me, are you trying to get through
    Are you reaching out for me, I'm reaching out for you

    I'm just so fuckin' depressed
    I just can seem to get out this slump
    If I could just get over this hump
    But I need something to pull me out this dump
    I took my bruises, took my lumps
    Fell down and I got right back up
    But I need that spark to get psyched back up
    In order for me to pick that mic back up
    I don't know how I pry away
    And I ended up in this position I'm in
    I starting to feel distant again
    So I decided just to pick this pen
    Up and tried to make an attempt to vent
    But I just can't admit
    Or come to grips, with the fact that
    I may be done with rap
    I need a new outlet
    I know some shits so hard to swallow
    And I just can't sit back and wallow
    In my own sorrow
    But I know one fact
    I'll be one tough act to follow
    One tough act to follow
    One tough act to follow
    One tough act to follow
    Here today, gone tomorrow
    But you have to walk a thousand miles

    Chorus
    In my shoes, just to see
    What it's like, to be me
    I'll be you, let's trade shoes
    Just to see what I'd be like to
    Feel your pain, you feel mine
    Go inside each other's mind
    Just to see what we find
    Look at shit through each other's eyes

    But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
    They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you sO
    Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
    They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you

    I think I'm starting to lose my sense of humor
    Everything is so tense and gloom
    I almost feel like I gotta check the temperature in the room
    Just as soon as I walk in
    It's like all eyes on me
    So I try to avoid any eye contact
    Cause if I do that then it opens a door to conversation
    Like I want that...
    I'm not looking for extra attention
    I just want to be just like you
    Blend in with the rest of the room
    Maybe just point me to the closest restroom
    I don't need fucking man servant
    Tryin to follow me around, and wipe my ass
    Laugh at every single joke I crack
    And half of them ain't even funny like
    Ahh Marshall, you're so funny man, you should be a comedian, god damn
    Unfortunately I am, but I just hide behind the tears of a clown
    So why don't you all sit down
    Listen to the tale I'm about to tell
    Hell, we don't have to trade our shoes
    And you don't have to walk no thousand miles

    Chorus
    In my shoes, just to see
    What it's like, to be me
    All be you, let's trade shoes
    Just to see what I'd be like to
    Feel your pain, you feel mine
    Go inside each other's mind
    Just to see what we find
    Look at shit through each other's eyes

    But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
    They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you so
    Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
    They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you

    Nobody asked for life to deal us
    With these bullshit hands they've delt
    We have to take these cards ourselves
    And flip them, don't expect no help
    Now I could have either just
    Sat on my ass and pissed and moaned
    But take this situation in which I'm placed in
    And get up and get my own
    I was never the type of kid
    To wait but I know to unpack his bags
    Never sat on the porch and hoped and prayed
    For a dad to show up who never did
    I just wanted to fit in
    Every single place
    Every school I went
    I dreamed of being that cool kid
    Even if it meant acting stupid
    Aunt Edna always told me
    Keep making that face till it gets stuck like that
    Meanwhile I'm just standing there
    Holding my tongue up trying to talk like this
    Till I stuck my tongue on the frozen stop sign poll at 8 years old
    I learned my lesson and cause I wasn't tryin to impress my friends no more
    But I already told you my whole life story
    Not just based on my description
    Cause where you see it from where you're sitting
    Is probably 110% different
    I guess we would have to walk a mile
    In each other's shoes, at least
    What size you where?
    I wear tens
    Let's see if you can fit your feet

    Chorus
    In my shoes, just to see
    What it's like, to be me
    All be you, let's trade shoes
    Just to see what I'd be like to

    Feel your pain, you feel mine
    Go inside each other's mind
    Just to see what we find
    Look at shit through each other's eyes

    But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah
    They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you so
    Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful woah

    They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you
    Lately I've been hard to reach
    I've been too long on my own
    Everybody has a private world
    Where they can be alone...
    Are you calling me, are you trying to get through woah
    Are you reaching out for me, I'm reaching out for you so

    Yea... To my babies. Stay strong. Daddy will be home soon
    And to the rest of the world, god gave you the shoes
    That fit you, so put em on and wear em
    And be yourself man, be proud of who you are
    Even if it sounds corny,
    Don't ever let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful
    "So I say, live and let live. Thats my motto. Live and let live.
    Anyone who cant go along with that, take him outside and shoot the motherfucker."
    - George Carlin

    Rush - Middletown Dreams lyrics

    The office door closed early
    The hidden bottle came out
    The salesman turned to close the blinds
    A little slow now, a little stout
    But he's still heading down those tracks
    Any day now for sure
    Another day as drab as today
    Is more than a man can endure

    Dreams flow across the heartland
    Feeding on the fires
    Dreams transport desires
    Drive you when you're down --
    Dreams transport the ones who need to get out of town

    the boy walks with his best friend
    Through the fields of early May
    They walk awhile in silence
    One close -- one far away
    But he'd be climbing on that bus
    Just him and his guitar
    To blaze across the heavens
    Like a brilliant shooting star

    The middle-aged madonna
    Calls her neighbour on the phone
    Day by day the seasons pass
    And leave her life alone
    But she'll go walking out that door
    On some bright afternoon
    To go and paint big cities
    From a lonely attic room

    It's understood
    By every single person
    Who'd be elsewhere if they could
    So far so good
    And life's not unpleasant
    In their little neighbourhood

    They dream in Middletown...
