    Black / then white are / all I see / in my infancy.
    Red and yellow then came to be / reaching out to me.
    Lets me see.
    As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
    Drawn beyond the lines of reason.
    Push the envelope / Watch it bend.

    .....and pretty much everything else by Tool, I guess
    In the future, everyone will have 15 minutes of privacy.

    "Perfect / That's what I'm striving to be.
    The next best thing won't do for me.
    I do my best / You disagree.
    Holier than thou / Holier than me."

    "Armageddon" - VOX...

    02.
    "I'm sorry now / And then.
    Sometimes I didn't even give a damn.
    So sorry / Yes, I am.
    To leave the ones who made me a better man.
    Time / Doesn't understand.
    Won't let up / It never makes any plans
    All stories have to end.
    Farewell to all my friends."

    "Psychedelic Soul" - Scott Matthew...

    03.
    "Scatterbraine / they smoked you out of the foxhole.
    Scatterbraine / you act like a priest in a brothel.
    Naive charm / the idiot boy from the farm.
    Father tried / to save you with prayers and psalms.

    Grace / and Lydia / and Dorothy.
    The village idiot / sent them to sleep.
    Policeman O'Riley / cannot believe.
    That someone so dumb could be still on the run from the law."

    "Scatterbraine" - Ed Harcourt...

    Ever tried Mudshovel by Staind?

    "I lost myself inside your tainted smile again. Cause you can't feel my anger, you can't feel my pain. You can't feel my torment, driving me insane. I can't fight these feelings, they will bring you pain, you can't take away, make me whole again"

    I think I've lost some of that anger, doesn't read like a good text no more But still a nice song.

    The cannibal king with the big nose ring
    Fell in love with a sweet young maid
    And every night by the pale moonlight
    This is what you'll hear him say
    Ba doom
    Ba doom
    Ba doom ba dee ya dee yeah
    Ba doom
    Ba doom
    Ba doom ba dee ya dee yeah

    so please remember me, finally
    and all my uphill clawing
    my dear, but if i make the Pearly Gates
    i’ll do my best to make a drawing
    of God and Lucifer, a boy and girl
    an angel kissin’ on a sinner
    a monkey and a man, a marching band
    all around the frightened trapeze-swinger

    The Trapeze Swinger by Iron and Wine

    I'm playing in a Misfits karaoke band tomorrow night and I had forgotten just how goofy some of those lyrics were ("an omlette of disease awaits your noon-time meal"?) or how out there (the whole Jackie-O bit in Bullet for example)

    but gotta love "Your future is in an oblong box"

    "..Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
    Fuck all his clones.
    Fuck all those gun-toting
    Hip gangster wannabes.
    ...

    Fuck retro anything.
    Fuck your tattoos.
    Fuck all you junkies and
    Fuck your short memory.

    .....

    Fuck smiley glad-hands
    With hidden agendas.
    Fuck these dysfunctional,
    Insecure actresses.

    Learn to swim.

    Cuz I'm praying for rain
    And I'm praying for tidal waves
    I wanna see the ground give way.
    I wanna watch it all go down.
    Mom please flush it all away.
    I wanna watch it go right down.
    I wanna watch it go right in.
    Watch you flush it all away.." - TOOL
