Uncle John's Band - Grateful Dead



Well the first days are the hardest days,
Don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like easy
Street, there is danger at your door.
Think this through with me, let me know your mind.
Woh - oh, what I want to know, is are you kind?


It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice.
You know all the rules by now and the fire from ice.
Will you come with me, won't you come with me?
Woh - oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?


Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like?
Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is
Don't tread on me. 

Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide.
Come with me, or go alone.
He's come to take his children home.

It's the same story the crow told me;
It's the only one he knows.
Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go.
Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait,
Woh - oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?


I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb;
I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune
Anybody's choice, I can hear your voice.
Woh - oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?


Come hear Uncle John's Band by the riverside
Got some things to talk about, here beside the risin' tide


Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide,
Come on along, or go alone,
He's come to take his children home.


Woh - oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?


Come hear Uncle John's Band by the riverside,
Got some things to talk about here beside the risin' tide.


Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide.

Come on along or go alone, he's come to take his children home.

I Want To Be Alone - Jackson C. Frank




I want to be alone
I need to touch each stone
Face the grave that I have grown
I want to be
Alone


Before all the days are gone
And darker walls are bent and torn
To pass the time of those who mourn
I want to be
Alone


Rivers that run anywhere
Are in my hand and just up the stair
Past the eyes of those who care
Who can never be
Alone


Changes that were not meant to be
Tow the hours of my memory
Sing a song of love to me
To say you must never
Never be alone


The tears of a silent rain
Seek shelter on my broken pain
And run away
But I remain
To speak the words
That sing
Of alone


I want to be alone
I need to touch each stone
Face the grave that I have grown
I want to be
Alone

Little Black Submarines - The Black Keys



Little black submarines
Operator please
Put me back on the line
Told my girl I'd be back
Operator please
This is wrecking my mind


Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

 
Pick you up, let you down
When I wanna go
To a place I can hide
You know me, I had plans
But they just disappeared
To the back of my mind


Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind


Treasure maps, falling trees
Operator please
Call me back when it's time
Stolen friends and disease
Operator please
Put me back on the line


Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time


I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind


That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

Human - The Killers



I did my best to notice  
When the call came down the line 
Up to the platform of surrender 
I was brought, but I was kind
And sometimes I get nervous 

When I see an open door  
Close your eyes, clear your heart   
Cut the cord
 

Are we human or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital, my hands are cold  
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer 
Are we human or are we dancer?
 

Pay my respects to grace and virtue 
Send my condolences to good  
Give my regards to soul and romance 
They always did the best they could
And so long to devotion 

You taught me everything I know 
Wave goodbye, wish me well  
You've gotta let me go
 

Are we human or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital, my hands are cold 
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer 
Are we human or are we dancer?
 

Will your system be alright 
When you dream of home tonight? 
There is no message we're receiving 
Let me know, is your heart still beating?
 

Are we human or are we dancer?  
My sign is vital, my hands are cold 
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
 
You've gotta let me know  

Are we human or are we dancer? 
My sign is vital, my hands are cold  

And I'm on my knees looking for the answer  
Are we human or are we dancer?
Are we human or are we dancer? 

Are we human or are we dancer?

Charlie Big Potato - Skunk Anansie



I awake
From blood thick dreams
Washing blame
From my knees

Softly done
So secretly
I'm awake
As Charlie sleeps

A lone brother, a lone sister
A home cover, alone


I awake

Dry the scream
Spit the vile breath
Till my tongue bleed

Thinks it's all gone
Famously

Broke the hard girl
Good to please


TELL IT LIKE IT IS

TELL IT LIKE IT IS

TELL THE SORDID TRUTH


TELL THEM


TELL IT LIKE IT IS


TELL THEM
