Novocaine for the Soul
Eels — Watch: <http://youtu.be/V2yy141q8HQ>

Life is hard
And so am I
You'd better give me something
So I don't die
Novocaine for the soul
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Life is white
And I am black
Jesus and his lawyer
Are coming back
Oh my darling
Will you be here
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Guess who's living here wi th the great undead
This paint by numbers life is f—ing with my head, once again
Life is good
And I feel great
'cause mother says I was
A great mistake
Novocaine for the soul
You'd better give me something to fill the hole
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out
Before I sputter out

The Doors
An American Prayer (1978)
An American Prayer/ Hour For Magic/ Freedom Exists/ A Feast Of Friends


Do you know the warm progress
under the stars?

Do you know we exist?

Have you forgotten the keys
to the kingdom

Have you been borne yet
& are you alive?

Let's reinvent the gods, all teh myths
of the ages

Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests
[Have you forgotten the lessons
of the ancient war]

We need great golden copulations

The fathers are cackling in trees
of the forest

Our mother is dead in the sea

Do you know we are being led to
slaughters by placid admirals

& that fat slow generals are getting
obscene on young blood

Do you know we are ruled by T.V.

The moon is dry blood beast

Guerrilla bands are rolling numbers
in the next block of green vine

amassing for warfare on innocent
herdsman who are just dying

O great creator of being

grant us one more hour to
perform our art
& perfect our lives

The moths & atheists are doubly divine
& dying

We live, we die
& death not ends it

Journey we more into the
Nightmare
Cling to life
Our passion'd flower

Cling to Cunts & cocks
of despair

We got our final vision
by clap

Columbus groin got
filled w/green death

(I touched her thigh
& death smiled)

We have assembled inside this ancient
& insane theatre

To propagate our lust for life
& flee the swarming wisdom
of the streets

The barns are stormed

The windows kept

& only one of all the rest

To dance & save us

W/the divine mockery
of words

Music inflames temperament

(When the true King's murderers
are allowed to roam free
a 1000 Magicians arise in the land)

Where are the feasts
we are promised

Where is the wine
The New Wine
(dying on the vine)
resident mockery
give us an hour for magic
We of the purple glove
We of the starling flight
& velvet hour
We of arabic pleasures's breed
We of sundome & the night

Give us a creed

To believe

A nightr of lust
Give us trust in
The Night
Give of color
hundred hues
a rich mandala
for me & for you
& for your silky
pillowed house
a head, wisdom
& a bed
Troubled decree
Resident mockery
has claimed thee
We used to believe
in the good old days
We still receive
In little ways
The things of Kindness
& unsporting brow
Forget & allow

Did you know freedom exists
in school books

Did you know madmen are
running our prisons

w/in a jail, w/in a gaol
w/in a white free protestant
maelstrom

We're perched headlong
on the edge of boredom

We're reaching for death
on the end of a candle

We're trying for something
that's already found us

Wow, I'm sick of doubt
Live in the light of certain
south

Cruel bindings

The sevants have the power

dog-men & their mean women
pulling poor blankets over
our sailors

I'm sick of dour faces
Starong at me from the T.V.

Tower, I want roses in
my garden bower; dig?

Royal babies, rubies
must now replace aborted

Strangers in the mud

These mutants, blood-meal
for the plant that's plowed
they are waiting to take us into
the severed garden

Do you know how pale & wanton thrillful
comes death on a stranger hour
unannounced, unplanned for

like a scaring over-friendly guest you've
brought to bed

Death makes angels of us all
& gives us wings
where we had shoulders
smooth as raven's
claws

No more money, no more fancy dress
This other kingdom seems by far the best
until its other jaw reveals incest
& loose obedience to a vegetable law

I will not go
Prefer a feast of friends
To the Giant family



Current LD goal(s): Have an SD with that cute little crow.

I came across this for the first time by chance tonight and couldn't resist posting it on here since I immediately thought of LDs when listening. grin

You Can't Stop Me From Dreaming
(Cliff Friend / Dave Franklin)



So sweet and lovely, but what an affair
Not even a kiss since we met
You just won't love me, but I don't care
For I will get you yet

You can stop me from kissing you
You can stop me from cuddling too
You can treat me mean, honey, that's alright
But I'll get even with you tonight
Because you can't stop me from dreaming

You can stop me from holding hands
Make me listen to your commands
You can say, "No, No!" honey, that's alright
But I'll get even with you tonight
Because you can't stop me from dreaming

From one o'clock till nine
I'll dream you're mine
I'll steal a kiss
See what you're gonna to miss

You can't stop me romancing you
You're the boss now, but we aren't through
You can turn me down, honey, that's alright
But I'll get even with you tonight
Because you can't stop me from dreaming

From one o'clock till nine
I'll dream you're mine
I'll steal a kiss
See what you're gonna miss
You can't stop me romancing you
You're the boss now, but we aren't through
You can turn me down, honey, that's alright
But I'll get even with you tonight
Because you can't stop me from dreaming

Helen Trevillion - A Elbereth Gilthoniel

Snow-white! Snow-white! O lady clear!
O Queen beyond the Western Seas!
O light to us that wander here
Amid the world of woven trees!

Gilthoniel! O Elbereth!
Clear are thy eyes and bright thy breath!
Snow-white! Snow-white! We sing to thee
In a far land beyond the sea

O stars that in the Sunless Year
With shining hand by her were sown
In windy fields now bright and clear
We see your silver blossom blown!

O Elbereth! Gilthoniel!
We still remember, we who dwell
In this far land beneath the trees
Thy starlight on the Western seas

A Elbereth Gilthoniel
o menel palan-díriel
le nallon sí di'nguruthos
A tiro nin, fanuilos!

"Domino"
by Jessie J

I'm feeling sexy and free
Like glitter's raining on me
You're like a shot of pure gold
I think I'm 'bout to explode

I can taste the tension like a cloud of smoke in the air
Now I'm breathing like I'm running cause you're taking me there
Don't you know? You spin me out of control

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
We can do this all night
Damn this love is skin tight
Baby, come on
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Boom me like a bass drum
Sparkin' up a rhythm
Baby, come on!
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Rock my world into the sunlight
Make this dream the best I've ever known
Dirty dancing in the moonlight
Take me down like I'm a domino

Every second is a highlight
When we touch don't ever let me go
Dirty dancing in the moonlight
Take me down like I'm a domino

You got me losing my mind
My heart beats out of time
I'm seeing Hollywood stars
You strum me like a guitar

I can taste the tension like a cloud of smoke in the air
Now I'm breathing like I'm running cause you're taking me there
Don't you know? You spin me out of control

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
We can do this all night
Damn this love is skin tight
Baby, come on
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Boom me like a bass drum
Sparkin' up a rhythm
Baby, come on!
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Rock my world into the sunlight
Make this dream the best I've ever known
Dirty dancing in the moonlight
Take me down like I'm a domino

Every second is a highlight
When we touch don't ever let me go
Dirty dancing in the moonlight
Take me down like I'm a domino

Ooh, baby, baby, got me feeling so right
Ooh, baby, baby, dancing in the moonlight
Ooh, baby, baby, got me feeling so right
Ooh, baby, baby, dancing in the moonlight
Ooh, baby, baby, got me feeling so right
Ooh, baby, baby, dancing in the moonlight
Ooh, baby, baby, got me feeling so right
Ooh, baby, baby

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Rock my world into the sunlight
Make this dream the best I've ever known
Dirty dancing in the moonlight
Take me down like I'm a domino

Every second is a highlight
When we touch don't ever let me go
Dirty dancing in the moonlight
Take me down like I'm a domino

I miss this thread, so I'm going to revive it with my current favourite song.

Kimbra - Good Intent
You heard the crickets of the early eve
They lurk around the opening in two's and three's
Clementine told you not to move with the breeze
I'll take you down to places where we dare not speak

The red light in the doorway says she's armed
But boy go try your luck and you might get past
Step into the dwelling of the liger's mouth
Peer into the panic for a kick and swell
You know you shouldn't be there but it's way past bed
There's comfort in the fingers of your good intent
You know you shouldn't be there but your money's all spent
You've got your reputation and your good intent
Your good intent

Out to feed that habit when you've sowed that seed
Nothing made you feel out of the ordinary
But the air turns sombre and the night took lead
Took you on a waltz of hypocrisy

She broke your bones, now you're lying in the dirt
The shadow of a hunter under your torn shirt
It's not enough to say, it's not what's in your heart
You've tainted every moment till death do we part

I know you didn't mean it, boy you meant so well
The pennies are cascading down your wishing well
I know you didn't mean it when you counted to ten
You're slipping through the fingers of your good intent

I know you didn't mean it, boy, you meant so well
The pennies are cascading down your wishing well
I know you didn't mean it when you counted to ten
You've got your reputation and your good intent
Such a good intent

It's not enough to hope for the best
It's not enough to lie there on her breast
The liger's on the prowl now you've pulled at the string
One false move and soon you're playing dice for a-



Current LD goal(s): Erm... have one.

Genre: Black Metal
Band: Luror
Album: Cease To Live
--------------------
I am...
Thinking of one moment in time,
When I felt myself as a part
Of something more than a lie
The tomorrow's goldbrick,
The vertigo of man:
How to live tomorrow
When you're already dead today?

My hope is fading in the sunset of man
Another field trial is coming to the end
My wings were broken and crippled since then
When I and my fellows fell down from the sky
And died...

We are dead angels, lost and forgotten
Without holy guidance
Or hope for salvation
Already dead but forced into life
Blessed by nothing but infinite strife

The day will come to return to heaven
To conquer divine ground
When the pentagram blazes up in the sky
We will remember how to fly

Mika - Toy Boy

I'm a wind-up toy in an up down world
If you leave me all alone, I'll make a mess for sure
I've a heart of gold in the smallest size
Leave me in the dark, you'll never hear me cry

More than an illustration
Points of articulation
Come to life on a brass spring
Such a wonderful plaything

It's a cruel cross that I have to bear
If you come a little close I'm going to pull your hair
More than just a toy in a patched blue suit
Hold me in your arms I'm just a boy like you

But your mama thought there was something wrong
Didn't want you sleeping with a boy too long
It's a serious thing in a grown-up world
Maybe you'd be better with a Barbie girl

You knew that I adored ya
But you left me in Georgia
Toys are not sentimental
How could I be for rental?

She's the meanest hag that has ever been
Pulled out my insides with an old safety pin
I'm the sorest sight, now I feel like trash
Clothes are made of rags and they don't even match

So she dressed me up as the man she loved
Then threw me in a box when she had had enough
Now the light of day I no longer see
She stuck her voodoo pins where my eyes used to be

Accidentally tragic
Victim of her black magic
Had a boy once who loved me
Now he's so afraid of me

On a long lost day when you're gray and old
You'll be there remembering your old toy boy
When your oldest son wondering what to be
Tell him the story of a boy like me

Kimbra - The Build Up
(yeah another Kimbra song. But I love the girl. Hurray double posting)

Went from cities to touch the suburbs
On the highway, but I'm barefoot
I need a map but not the destination
Need a compass but not a conversation

I want to run far from this grey town
You're on every street, marked on the ground
Not the momentum and not the pace
Want the price but not the raise

I want the jump but not the height
Let me fall but catch me mid flight
I swam with sharks and beasts of the sea
Only went down for the company
Went down for the company

I forgot to mention:
That you would come back home when I call
Left no sign, nothing at all
Sorry you won't fit inside my heart
I wanted love without the build up

I need the rules but not the regulations
Want the wisdom but not the information
Need the light but not the heat of the day
Need your hands to show me how to pray

I lost the plot underneath the fire
Of all the dots and lines that took me higher
Away from traffic and smiles of tire
I like the nights but not the tangled wires

Need the pulse to feel alive
All the world's just made it seem all quiet
This has all become far too loud
I like you more when you don't make a sound

You will come back home when I call
Left no sign, nothing at all
Sorry you won't fit inside my heart
Won't you come light the way and wash this away

I wanted love without the build up

Flight of The Concords.

"Rambling Through The Avenues Of Time"

I was wandering through the streets of the city
Rambling through the the avenues of time
When from nowhere my eyes fell onto a girl
And by chance her eyes fell onto mine
Ah...

So I sat and I acted all nonchalant
She smoked her lavender cigarette
Reading the future that lay in my hands
My shadow played a bass clarinet
Where are you going with this, Bret?

We waltzed down a moonlit boulevard
Just two silhouettes in the mist
Ah. yes?
Days went by and years went by
Moments went by when we kissed
When was this?

She said, "Your beard is woven of heartache
And we'll drink for the lonely tonight."
And the moon is a horny old drunkard
Ah, Bret. Could you please move over to your right?

We drank dandelion wine and we reminisced
About the moment when we first met that day
I'm trying to watch TV
Then we reminisced about how we first reminisced
Ah yeah. Sounds a bit gay

She handed me a broken memory
A keepsake to forevermore say
That a brief taste of love is as sweet as any
And with that, she made her way
Oh yeah. What was her name?

She said her name was a secret
Then she said her name was Cherie
Is her middle name Cherie, so It's a Secret Cherie, maybe?
Mm .. Maybe What did she look like?

She looked like a Parisian river
What? dirty?
She looked like a chocolate eclair
That's rare
Her eyes were reflections of eyes
Oh, nice
And the rainbows danced in her hair
Oh yeah..

She reminded me of a winter's morning
What, frigid?
Her perfume was eau de toilette
What's that mean?
She was comparable to Cleopatra
Quite old?
She was like Shakespeare's Juliet
Thirteen?!

The bohemians of Soho did pirouettes
As we waltzed through the streets of Manhattan
On rivers of ribbon and sailboats of song
Bret, did any of this actually happen?

The girl I described, she's as real as the wind
It's true I saw her today
The other details are inventions
Because I prefer her that way

Miracle of Sound
The New Black Gold
A song based on the themes of Deus Ex - Human Revolution

A glaring neon glow illuminates this street
Breathe in these human vapors, sweat and heavy heat
Hi-tech cathedrals rise and fall in great ravines
Colossal steeples to the gods in the machines

Broken body built anew
Spirit lingers, torn in two
Metal fingers grip my heart so cold

Fossil fuels to slavery
Political duplicity
Every great commodity's been sold

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin
Search my electric soul for the hidden man within

Your secret science conquers nature's cruel laws
But inside your wires lie a million mortal flaws
Electric sleep I dream inside my honeycomb
I stay alive inside my hive of skin and chrome

Broken body built anew
Spirit lingers, torn in two
Metal fingers grip my heart so cold

Fossil fuels to slavery
Political duplicity
Every great commodity's been sold

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin
Search my electric soul for the hidden man within
Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin

Broken body built anew
Spirit lingers, torn in two...

"Dream" Roy Orbison
written by Henriques, Sean Paul / Riley, Winston Delaney / Stacious, Scarlet.

Dream, when you're feeling blue
Dream, that's the thing to do
Just watch the smoke rings rise in the air
You'll find your share of memories there

So dream, when the day is through
Dream, and they might come true
Things never are as bad as they seem
So dream, dream, dream

Dream, when the day is through
Dream, and they might come true
Things never are as bad as they seem
So dream, dream, dream

1979 by smashing pumpkins

shakedown, 1979.
cool kids never have the time.
on a live wire, right up off the street. you and i... should meet.

junebug skipping like a stone,
with the headlights pointed at the dawn.
we were sure we'd never see an end... to it all...

and i don't even care to shake these zipper blues.
and we don't know just where our bones will
rest. to dust, i guess. forgotten and absorbed
to the earth below.

double cross the vacant and the bored.
they're not sure just what we have in store.
morphine city slipping dues, down to see...

that we don't even care, as restless as we are.
we feel the pull, in the land of a thousand
guilts, and poured cement.
lamented and assured

to the lights, and towns below.
faster than the speed of sound.
faster than we thought we'd go.
beneath... the sound
of hope.

justine never knew the rules,
hung down with the freaks and the ghouls.
no apologies ever need be made.
i know you better than you fake it. to see...

that we don't even care to shake these zipper blues.
and we don't know just where our bones will
rest. to dust, i guess. forgotten and absorbed
to the earth below.

street heats the urgency of now,
as you see there's no one around.
