Fated.

Current mood: bitchy

Ah, those days when you figure typing out pages of I HATE MYSELF AND WANT TO DIE over and over again would be so effective, yet you don't want to be that dramatic. You'd think a couple Tylenol would help, and you figure you'd be a little numb to the pain, but you're not. Not to mention I have reason to celebrate. New guitar, fresh on parole after the semester's over. Oh well. Life moves on I guess. So here's a classic from my buddy Matt.

Fated - Matthew Good

There's a spaceman
In my basement
There's an IV keeping time beside my bed
and a painting
of Jesus wandering
For a dart board
You know he's seen you naked a million times

I long to be dead,
and sleep with the fishes under the sea.
They can swim through my head,
and stop all the traffic jams.
Stop all the traffic jams,
and there'll be no light tonight,
if I'm Fated.

There's a cartoon killer in my living room,
cut you open like candy and pull out your little wound.
Like TV dinners for the third world,
and amputee dancing girls.
You try but you fail cause you're bad at life.
Good in a vacuum.

I long to be dead,
and sleep with the fishes under the sea.
They can swim through my head,
and stop all the traffic jams.
Stop all the traffic jams,
and there'll be no light tonight,
if I'm Fated.

Here's a lovely live version. If anyone is reading this, I would feel less alone if you left a comment.

[[Lights Inside My Head]]

Current mood: vivacious

More Cloud Cult for you. Hope you enjoy it.

Lights Inside My Head - Cloud Cult

I've been seeing lights inside my head
I'm not broken, I am fixed again
Will you love me through these changes?
'Cause I can't make them go away.

And Hell is the fear of pain
While Heaven is the faith that things will be okay
And all your life you've been waiting for someone to hold you like the day you were born
To look into those eyes and know that we are all the same

And you're so beautiful in every way
And fuck 'em, Lucy
But I'm drunk again
I'll be okay...

If only.

Current mood: sad

We made up your mind for you last night,
so you can decide that you'll be alright.
It's no small trick to beat-beat the pessimistic motherfucker sleeping inside your head.

Do you believe in you?
'Cause no one else can do that for you.
Are you ready yet?
Are you ready yet?
I don't want to hear it.
I don't want to hear it.

One night could last forever, and if you asked her

Current mood: pensive

This is one of my favourite songs. It's got such a simplistic, dream-like quality to it that just makes me want to cry listening to it, but also sleep. It's a nice little reminder of the problems of your world/life before you hit the hay. It's by the now famous Against Me!, or more specifically it's just Tom Gabel. He wrote the lyrics and the music anyways. As with most Against Me!, it's quite powerful and moving. This song succumbs to a similar fate, and that's why I love it so much. Just remember, a song doesn't have to rhyme to blow your mind wide open.

8 Full Hours of Sleep - Against Me!

When you sleep,
No one is homeless.
When you sleep,
You can't feel the hunger.
When you sleep,
No one is lonely in a dream.
Without classes,
Without nations...
When you sleep,
She's standing there with open arms,
And one night could last forever,
And if you asked her,
She'd never let go,
And you'd stay forever...

And the sun's always rising
In the sky somewhere,
And if young hearts should explode
From all the lies they've been told...

Let the new night bring you peace
And the promise of tomorrow,
Where we can wake to a new beginning.
Tomorrow I'll all but have lost their faces;
My friends and family,
Memories of all we had
And the times we should have lived,
And tomorrow America just might fall apart.
Tomorrow, tell me,
Where will you wake up?
Beyond title, beyond these careers and laws,
Something more than borders on a map...

And the sun's always rising in the sky somewhere,
And if young hearts should explode
From all the lies they've been told...
To live through one night like this,
I would trade it for the silence...

You're so the greatest change I'm always dreaming

Current mood: exanimate

This is something I'd like to install every day/month/week. If you like the lyrics, know the lyrics, love the song/band, put in your 2 cents. I'd like to see what you think. These first lyrics I've been listening to all day, from USS, which stands for Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker, and I believe they're from Toronto, which is why they're quite popular around here. The song's called Pornostartrek, but it's actually a nice little love song. USS have this habit of having beautiful acoustic music with a catchy drumbeat and DJ effects. Not to mention they make food for their audience at every show. My brother saw them give some chick a mean smoothie while mixing.

You make me feel like,
A shooting star
You make me feel like,
A porno star
You hold me closer still,
When I get paranoid
You give your hand to hold,
When I lose control.

You're like my compass and
We always find our way.
You bring your smile and wipe
Away my shitty day.
This sudden alchemy
Has got me holding on.
Stand-by auxiliary
Signals holding strong.

You make me so content
With everything I am.
You bring me up and in
When I'm down and out.
Heroine of confidence
When I'm strung out on doubt.
If I'm not making sense
You spit the riddles out.

You're like my compass and
We always find our way.
You bring your smile and wipe
Away my shitty day.
This sudden alchemy
Has got me holding on.
Stand-by auxiliary
Signals holding strong.

You're so my everyday
You're so my sweetest love.
You're so the greatest change
I'm always dreaming of.

You're like my compass and
We always find our way.
You bring your smile and wipe
Away my shitty day.
This sudden alchemy
Has got me holding on.
Stand-by auxiliary
Signals holding strong.

UG is crashing my browser!

Current mood: enraged

Every single time I try to search a song here, my browser freezes. At first, I thought it was just Firefox, so I reinstalled it, and nothing changed. Then I tried it on Explorer. I barfed, and still nothing. So, anyone else have that problem?

Puke stains

Current mood: sleepy

World, last week in a horrid headspinning drunken daze, i vomited all over my old computer, my BRAND NEW (from garage sale) organ, and 3 of my guitars. This had probably been one of the most horrid fucking events in my history. My Ibanez just so happens to have a special finish designed so you can't see all the flaws, which made life a living hell for the 5 minutes it took to clean. I have it tuned down 2 steps for the Dream Theater song "As I Am", and as I start the solo i stop and freak out basically all of my top frets are douced with this repeat-inducing substance. I instantly grab the same rag and scrub like you wouldn't believe, ripping off hangnails with the strings. After such, I clean up the little scraps of the cowboy steaks I had the night before for dinner off of my keys. So the next day, my singer comes over and I'm going to show her the organ. As I do so, I realize that the whole entire rest of the thing is covered with massive puke stains just about everywhere. I scatter and tell her I'll grab my acoustic, and then just like that, 90 spots of my steak all over it. I run to the bathroom, and grab a cloth and wash all that down the drain. To this day, there are still a couple spots on my Strat and a body-sized streak mark on my acoustic.

Hope y'all enjoy
