Random Lyric!

There’s no heat in this house
I can’t breathe with these words in my mouth
But I’m not going to say them
Yeah, I’ve made that mistake before

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Given the chance
I'll die like a baby
On some faraway beach
When the season's over

Unlikely I'll be remembered
As the tide brushes sand in my eyes
I'll drift away

Cast up on a plateau
With only one memory
A silver sail on a boat
Oh lie low lie low, li-li-li-li li-li-lo

--On Some Faraway Beach - Brian Eno
The End of Cinema

When the last days come,
We shall see visions.
More vivid than sunsets.
Brighter than stars.
We will recognize each other,
And see ourselves for the first time
The way we really are.

We don't have to be stars exploding in the night
Or electric eels under the covers
We don't have to be
Anything quite so unreal
Let's just be lovers

I said "I'm so happy I could die"
She said "Drop dead" and left with another guy

-Elvis Costello, "The Angels Want to Wear my Red Shoes"

We don't have to be stars exploding in the night
Or electric eels under the covers
We don't have to be
Anything quite so unreal
Let's just be lovers

The Magnetic Fields, A Chicken With Its Head Cut Off

I love that one.

Dude, you just stole my thunder! I was about to post a Magnetic Fields lyric!

If only we agreed more often on films...

I see Judas in the hard eyes of the boys who worked in the corners
I feel Jesus in the clumsiness of young and awkward lovers

Loves me some Bjork.

We made our oath to Vavilov
We'd not betray the Solanum
The acres of asteraceae
To our own pangs of starvation
When the war came
When the war came

And the war came with a curse and a caterwaul
And the war came with all the poise of a cannonball
And they're picking out our eyes by coal and candlelight
When the war came, the war came hard

With all the grain of Babylon

-The Decemberists, "When the War Came"
