Well no one reads LJ on Sundays, so it seems like a fine time to post something kind of silly.
Usually when someone posts song lyrics it's the result of emoness clouding their judgement and is of no interest to anyone else. Well there's a few songs of which I find the lyrics particularly interesting and/or fun and felt like sharing (crossposting them here is the closest I'm willing to get to participating in karaoke! :D ).
Julian Casablancas - Out of the Blue
Somewhere along the way, My hopefulness turned to sadness
Somewhere along the way, My sadness turned to bitterness
Somewhere along the way, My bitterness turned to anger
Somewhere along the way, My anger turned to vengeance
And the ones that I make pay, Were never the ones who deserve it
And the ones who deserved it, they'll never understand it!
Yes, I know I'm going to hell, in a purple basket!
At least I'll be in another world, when you're pissing on my casket!
How could you beeeee ... so perfect for meeeee?
Why can't you ignorrrrre ... the things I did beforrrrre?
Somewhere along the way, exacting vengeance gave excitement
Somewhere along the way, that excitement turned to pleasure
Somewhere along the way, that pleasure turned to madness
Sooner or later that kind of madness turns into pain.
And the ones that I made pay, were never the ones who deserved it,
Those that helped me along the way, I smacked them as I thanked them!
Yes I know I am going to helll, in a leather jaaaacket!
At least I'll be in another world, while you're pissin on my casket!
All I can do, is sing a song of faded glory,
And all you got to do, is sit there look great and make 'em horny,
Together we'll sing songs and tell exaggerated stories
About the way we feel today in the night and in the morning,
How could you beeeee ... so perfect for meeee?
Why can't you ignorrrre ... the things I did beforrrrre?
Take all your fears, pretend they're all true
Take all your plans, Pretend they all fell through,
But that's what it's like,
That's what it's like for most peeeeeeople in the world!
Rich or the poor,
Muslims and Jews,
When roles are reversed,
Opinions are too.
That's all I'm going to say now,
Before you coming knocking on my door now.
Recently on last.fm I also discovered:
Daniel Kehn & the Painted Bird - Six Million Germans
Jason Webley - Dance While the Sky Crashes Down
Great Lake Swimmers - Your Rocky Spine
I get "CNN Headline news (tm)" automatically emailed to me. It's almost invariably dumb Things I Don't Care about or if it's important I hear it somewhere else first, but anyway, this just came in:
Security breach at Newark Airport. Terminal C on lockdown after man went through the wrong side of a checkpoint exit.
...I am rather amused that SOMEONE WALKING THROUGH THE WRONG DOOR is apparently national headline news!
