"everything was so dead still, the air just froze and broke. those few words you said to you, had no place to go but to our minds and to our hearts, the torture wasn't marked, and know i've found that you hated our life.
I just think it through sometimes, i get nowhere but lost. i can't help but miss those things, that we found through our talks. now we dont laugh and we dont sing, and i can't understand a thing. Now the thirds and the fifths are all gone. (and it's so hard to see you now) don't be my unsung zero (and its so wrong to hate you now) dont be my unsung zero (i can only scream half as loud) dont be my unsung zero.
I dont want to chase the past, it feels like finding ghosts. You seem to have your mind set up. It's creeping from our home. We dont talk, and we don't call, in this manufactured war, where I can't even aim with my eyes.
Now that we've closed that door, hugged and stepped away. Thank you from my heart. With one last thing to say, I miss our life."

We're in a road movie to Berlin
Can't drive out the way we drove in
So sneak out this glass of bourbon
And we'll go

We were once so close to heaven
Peter came out and gave us medals
Declaring us the nicest of the damned

Time won't find the lost
It'll sweep up our skeleton bones
So take the wheel and I will take the pedals

We're in a road movie to Berlin
Can't drive out the way we drove in
So sneak out this glass of bourbon
And we'll go

I would like to leave this city,
This old town don't smell too pretty....

I would like to leave this city
This old town don't smell too pretty and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And when I leave this island I'll book myself into a soul asylum
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
So here I go still scratching around the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old
So what do you say?
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You're half the world away
Half the world away
Half the world away
I've been lost I've been found but I don't feel down.

Oasis, Half the world away
(Sorry, I forget the rest of the words before!)

I believe in fires at midnight ---
When the dogs have all been fed.
A golden toddy on the mantle ---
A broken gun beneath the bed.
Silken mist outside the window.
Frogs and newts slip in the dark ---
Too much hurry ruins the body.
I’ll sit easy ... fan the spark
Kindled by the dying embers of another working day.
Go upstairs ... take off your makeup ---
Fold your clothes neatly away.
Me, I’ll sit and write this love song
As I all too seldom do ---
Build a little fire this midnight.
It’s good to be back home with you. ;)

Fire at Midnight - Jethro Tull

Only takes one tree, to make a thousand matches
Only takes one match, to burn a thousand trees

How many roads must a man walk down,
Before that you call him a man?

Never forget where you've come here from
Never pretend that it's all real
Someday soon this will be someone else's dream

Take That - Never Forget

...and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt.

- Trent Reznor (NIN)
(although I have the Johnny Cash version in my head)

yeaaa tina once again my hero. i like the JC version like crazy.

im also down with the bob dylan and TMBG references Isa, though they arent exactly similar

oasis is the shit too.

"I fall asleep to the breeze from your open window.
And your computer screen lit the room just right.
The last thing from your mouth sheds light. (Goodnight)
You are the one who calls my arms. Wave from home and sound alarms. The want is angled from afar. And I don't want to leave, especially with this breeze. (But my ambition teases me)
This truth be known. I shout it in this song.
My song to say forget where I've gone wrong.
Times changed. I've changed. Now I feel like my life has changed.
I lie awake to this long night. To separate me from my mind until the morning light just shines. Your words sound right.
Cast these images to find. (I can't sleep another night)"
Small brown bike, Sleeping weather.

In truth, all of this is rather hollow in comparison to hearing the real song. oh if i could do that for all of you. sharing music makes me randy.
ah well. peace

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return....
