"So remember
Out there somewhere you’ve got a friend
And you’ll never walk alone again"

Cocksparrer, We’re Coming Back

One of my favorite songs to listen to when I’m down

nobody’s perfect
nobody’s perfect, ey, ey,
but you’re perfect for me

"in the first days of the springtime,
made you a prince with a thousand enemies.
made a trail of a thousand tears,
made you a prisoner inside your own frequency."

Ladytron, “Ghosts”

"Come on home,
all is forgiven.
Everything costs.
Deliver us from evil,
and carry your own cross."

Tom Waits, Spacious Thoughts (N.A.S.A. w/ Kool Keith)

dip it low, pick it up slow, roll it all around poke it out let your back roll

pop, pop, pop that thing, imma show you how to make your man sing

oh

i can feel your energy from two planets away

I’ll be flying. Identify. Don’t be scared, ‘bout to blow your mind. I’m from another space, another time. Wanna see the alleys of your mind.

"

alleys of your mind (of your mind, of your mind)
paranoia right behind (right behind, right behind)
alleys of your mind (of your mind, of your mind)
out of sync, out of rhyme (out of rhyme, out of rhyme)

shorns of hate warp your mind
where is your sense of time?
laser beams cause the dreams
that your mind hasn’t seen

take your fate in your hands
do what your fate demands
and you do what you’re told
blame it on thought control

alleys of your mind (of your mind, of your mind)
paranoia right behind (right behind, right behind)
alleys of your mind (of your mind, of your mind)
out of sync, out of rhyme (out of rhyme, out of rhyme)

"

cybotron, Alleys of Your Mind

"

Don’t look ahead, there’s stormy weather
Another road block in our way
But if we go, we go together
Our hands are tied here if we stay

We said our dreams will carry us
And if we don’t fly, we will run
Now we push right past to find out
How to win what they all lost

We know now we want more
A life worth fighting for
We know now we want more
A life worth fighting for

"

Santigold - "Disparate Youth"

For real, this is songwriting that takes hold of my heart and runs.
