They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...

In no-longer-pretty cities there are fingers in kitties.
There are warrants, forms, and chitties and a jackboot on the stair.
Sex and death and human grime, in monochrome for one thin dime,
But at least the trains all run on time but they don't go anywhere.
Facing their Responsibilities either on their backs or on their knees
There are ladies who just simply freeze and dare not turn away
And the widows who refuse to cry will be dressed in garter and bow-tie
And be taught to kick their legs up high in this vicious cabaret.

At last! The 1998 Show!
The ballet on the burning stage.
The documentary seen
Upon the fractured screen
The dreadful poem scrawled upon the crumpled page...

There's a policeman with an honest soul that has seen whose head is on the pole
And he grunts and fills his briar bowl with a feeling of unease.
But he briskly frisks the torn remains for a fingerprint or crimson stains
And endeavors to ignore the chains that he walks in to his knees.
While his master in the dark nearby inspects the hands, with a brutal eye,
That have never brushed a lover's thigh but have squeezed a nation's throat.
But he hungers in his secret dreams for the harsh embrace of cruel machines
But his lover is not what she seems and she will not leave a note.

At last! The 1998 Show!
The Situation Tragedy
Grand Opera slick with soap
Cliffhangers with no hope
The water-colour in the flooded gallery...

There's a girl who'll push but not shove and she's desperate for her father's love
She believes the hand beneath the glove maybe one she needs to hold.
Though she doubts her hosts moralities she decides she is more at ease
In the Land Of Doing What You Please than outside in the cold.
But the backdrop's peel and the sets give way and the cast gets eaten by the play
There's a murderer at the Matinee, there are dead men in the aisles
And the patrons and actors too are uncertain if the show is through
And with side-long looks await their cue but the frozen mask just smiles.

At last! The 1998 Show!
The torch-song no one ever sings
The curfew chorus line
The comedy divine
The bulging eyes of puppets strangled by their strings

There's thrills and chills and girls galore, sing-songs and surprises
There's something hear for everyone, reserve your seat today!
There's mischief and malarkies but no queers or yids or darkies
Within this bastard's carnival, this vicious cabaret!

And Now I'm Nothing - The Wonder Years


I know we've got miles to go, but-

I'm putting my shoulder to the wheel!!



@alliterator: You familiar with Allan Ginsberg?

I think you'd like this song, or maybe the entire album this song is from.


There are bridges over rivers. There are moments of collapse.
There are drivers with their feet on the glass.
You can kick but you can’t get out.
There is history in the Rooms of the House.

Ginsberg as in Howl? I know of him.

The song I posted was actually "This Vicious Cabaret" written by Alan Moore for V for Vendetta.

Manic Street Preachers - Little Baby Nothing

No one likes looking at you
Your lack of ego offends male mentality
They need your innocence
To steal vacant love and to destroy
Your beauty and virginity used like toys

My mind is dead, everybody loves me
Wants a slice of me
Hopelessly passive and compatible
Need to belong, oh the roads are scarey
So hold me in your arms
I wanna be your only possession

Used, used, used by men

All they leave behind is money
Paper made out of broken twisted trees
Your pretty face offends
Because it's something real that I can't touch
Eyes, skin, bone, contour, language as a flower

No god reached me, faded films and loving books
Black and white TV
All the world does not exist for me
And if I'm starving, you can feed me lollipops
Your diet will crush me
My life just an old man's memory

Little baby nothing
Loveless slavery, lips kissing empty
Dress your life in loathing
Breaking your mind with Barbie Doll futility

Little baby nothing
Sexually free, made-up to breakup
Assassinated beauty
Moths broken up, quenched at last
The vermin allowed a thought to pass them by

You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair

You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair

Turn Out The Lights - Manchester Orchestra

I think I finished a great blog off with a great song.

I mean, seriously, listen to it.

The emotion behind the vocals... ;___;

Within Temptation - What Have You Done

QUOTE
Would you mind if I hurt you?
Understand that I need to
Wish that I had other choices
Than to harm the one I love

What have you done now?

I know I'd better stop trying
You know that there's no denying
I won't show mercy on you now
I know I should stop believing
I know that there's no retrieving
It's over now
What have you done?

What have you done now?

I, I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away ...oh
What have you done now!
Why, why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us, between me and you

What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done now?
What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done now?

Would you mind if I killed you?
Would you mind if I tried to?
Cause you have turned into my worst enemy
You carry hate that I don't feel
It's over now
What have you done?

What have you done now?

I, I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away ...oh
What have you done now!
Why, why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us, between me and you

What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done now?
What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done! What have you done!
What have you done now?

I will not fall, won't let it go
We will be free when it ends

I, I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away ...oh
What have you done now!
Why, why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us, between me and you
I, I've been waiting for someone like you
But now you are slipping away ...oh
What have you done now!
Why, why does fate make us suffer?
There's a curse between us, between me and you


Madness isn't a state of mind.
The city devours the land, the people devour the city
Madness is a place.
Mists of dreams drip along the nascent echo and love no more
Let's go there.
All this has happened before, and will happen again
Shall we?

(Just the best bit from "Arrival" by CULT OF LUNA):

From the depth of earth I crawled
From Heaven's heights I've descended
The last one to know them all
The first to be rejected
Under cover of white light we meet at the first step
Digging graves for a dying world

(I've always wanted this song set to an animation of a dragon getting its shit slayed. Seems fitting to me.)

Anyone who loves Bright Eyes is now my friend forever and ever.

@jane: Whoa, you like Bright Eyes? :o Was not expecting that~

@jordan: Those are recent pictures; my hair's copying my mother's.

My mom's hair used to be completely blonde, but as she got older, her hair turned darker, and darker, and darker, until it was like completely black.

My hair is copying her's, to an extent. It's getting darker every year, anyways.


I love Bright Eyes. :3

yayy, new friend, I guess.

Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades - Brand New

( The sound quality for the video isn't all that great...it sucks, TBH , but the video was directed by Marc Webb, and it is just so fucking good I can't resist linking it instead of a lyrics version on youtube. If you would like, here's an HQ sound for the song. )

This song is about a male basically being forced into sex by a girl,...most likely a virgin guy. The video, however, can be interpreted as the Media teaching males that they're supposed to want to have sex all the time, to strive for it all the time. This interpretation is supported by a few lyrics, and also by the twist ending of the video.

------------------

Keep the noise low. She doesn't wanna blow it.
Shaking head to toe, while your left hand does "the show me around."
Quickens your heartbeat; it beats me straight into the ground.

You don't recover from a night like this....
A victim, still lying in bed, completely motionless.
A hand moves in the dark to a zipper.
Hear a boy bracing tight against sheets barely whisper,
"This is so messed up."

Upon arrival, the guests had all stared.
Dripping wet and clearly depressed,
he'd headed straight for the stairs.
No longer cool, but a boy in a stitch,
unprepared for a life full of lies and failing relationships.

(Up the stairs: the station where the act becomes the art of growing up.)


He keeps his hands low. He doesn't wanna blow it.
He's wet from head to toe and his eyes give her the up and the down.
His stomach turns, and he thinks of throwing up.
But the body on the bed beckons forward and he starts growing up.

The fever, the focus:....
the reasons that I had to believe you weren't too hard to sell.
(Die young and save yourself!!!)
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed, but now it's choking me up.
(Die young and save yourself!!!!)

She hits the lights; this doesn't seem quite fair.
Despite everything he learned from his friends, he doesn't feel so prepared.
She's breathing quiet and smooth, he's gasping for air.
"This is the first and last time," he says.
She fakes a smile, and presses her hips into his.
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides.
He's holding back from telling her, exactly what it really feels...

like.


He is the lamb; she is the slaughter.
She's moving way too fast, and all he wanted was to hold her.
Nothing that he tells her is really having an effect.
He whispers that he loves her,
but she's probably only looking for se-...

(Up the stairs: the station where the act becomes the art of growing up!)


So much more than he could ever give.
A life free of lies and a meaningful relationship.
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides.
He waits for it to end, and for the aching in his guts to subside.

The fever, the focus...:
The reasons that I had to believe you weren't too hard to sell.
(Die young and save yourself!!)
The tickle, the taste of...,
It used to be the reason I breathed, but now it's choking me up~
(Die young and save yourself!!!!!)

Up the stairs: the station where, the act becomes the art of growing up.

If You Leave - OMD

Because I love the fucking eighties, especially John Hughes films.

It's a really poppy, sappy song...but just so much nostalgia for an era I didn't even live in radiates from it!! :<

Limousine (MS Rebridge) - Brand New

I REALLY REALLY should NOT be posting this song ANYWHERE, because it could possibly spoil you on events coming in a certain blog of mine.

But fuck it let's do this shit.

QUOTE
K, here's your ride.
Get your petals out and lay them in the aisle
Pretend your garden grows and it's your day to wed.
We found your man, he's drinking up, he's all-american.
And he'll drive.

He's volunteered with grace to end your life,
He'll tidy up,
It's sad to hold, but leave your shell to us,
You explode,

You firefly, you tiny boat with oars,
Feather oars. The world tilts back and poison pours .
And so, you satellite....
You're a tidal wave, you're a big surprise.
And I've one more night to be your mother.

This signal interrupts,
Baby's frequency's not strong enough.
Remade my hands and smile.
We will miss you but in time you'll get set up,
We will WRITE!

A beauty supreme, yeah you were right about me,
Can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me,
And in the choir I saw a sad messiah,
He was bored and tired of my laments,
'said "I died for you one time but never again."


(never again)
Well I love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
One'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
Two'll love you so much, but do me a favor baby, don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
Three'll love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
Four'll love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
Five'll will love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply,
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
Six'll I love you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(never again)
Seven loves you so much, but do me a favor, baby don't reply.
Because I can dish it out, but I cant take it.

(I'll never have to buy adjacent plots of earth.)
But do me a favor baby don't reply,
(We'll never have to rot together underneath dirt. )
Because I can dish it out,

(I'll never have to lose my baby in the crowd.)

But I can't take it.

(I should be laughing right now…)

Le Chant des Partisans.

Ami, entends-tu le vol noir des corbeaux sur nos plaines ?
Ami, entends-tu les cris sourds du pays qu'on enchaîne ?
Ohé partisans, ouvriers et paysans, c'est l'alarme !
Ce soir l'ennemi connaîtra le prix du sang et des larmes.

Montez de la mine, descendez des collines, camarades,
Sortez de la paille les fusils, la mitraille, les grenades ;
Ohé les tueurs, à la balle et au couteau tuez vite !
Ohé saboteur, attention à ton fardeau, dynamite ...

C'est nous qui brisons les barreaux des prisons, pour nos frères,
La haine à nos trousses, et la faim qui nous pousse, la misère.
Il y a des pays où les gens au creux des lits font des rêves
Ici, nous, vois-tu, nous on marche et nous on tue, nous on crève.

Ici chacun sait ce qu'il veut, ce qu'il fait, quand il passe ;
Ami, si tu tombes, un ami sort de l'ombre à ta place.
Demain du sang noir séchera au grand soleil sur les routes,
Chantez, compagnons, dans la nuit la liberté nous écoute.

Ami, entends-tu les cris sourds du pays qu'on enchaîne ?
Ami, entends-tu le vol noir des corbeaux sur nos plaines ?

Thank you so much [REDACTED]... bloody never stops singing this - and now it's been in my head for 3 days. <_< I really wish it would go away.

QUOTE
And it goes like this
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me ‘til you’re drunk
And I’ll show you
All the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

I don’t need to try to control you
Look into my eyes
And I’ll own you
With the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

Ah, I think I could sympathise. :/

Coldplay - Lovers in Japan

QUOTE
Lovers, keep on the road you're on
Runners, until the race is run
Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even right is wrong

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day, we are gonna get out

Tonight maybe we're gonna run
Dreaming of the Osaka sun
Ohh ohh...
Dreaming of when the morning comes

They are turning my head out
To see what I'm all about
Keeping my head down
To see what it feels like now
But I have no doubt
One day the sun will come out
