1. Monday morning, eight-fifteen.
Hannah's heels click on the concrete.
Freshly showered and perfumed,
She carries breakfast inside her handbag.
He sees a dark market of a violin,
And he says, they break the most beautiful things,
But I hear violins.
3. I am exploring the inside.
I find it desolate.
I do implore these confines now as they penetrate,
4. I may be your dirty dog,
But you'll be my bitch until
The stars fall out of your eyes.
Got to open my eyes to everything.
6. Seeking in the corners of the earth
My companions I have never known,
Blindly running forth--is honor worth
Endless hours of silence spent alone?
7. 'Cause summer never comes,
Nowhere near high noon,
And winter never comes
Nor the harvest moon.
In your heart, in your head, in your own time.
With every word a trap that no one can take
Back from all the architects who find their towers leaning,
And every prayer we pray at night has somehow lost its meaning.
Fight till you're no longer sane.
Let not one damn cur pass by:
How many of them can we make die?
11. Now you fly away,
And you don't look down now,
And you laugh till you can't laugh any longer
As you watch your chains fall to the ground.
12. I read your mind,
But it wasn't a very interesting read.
The plot was contrived,
And the characters were too consumed by need.
13. Through the screams of falling steel. By the light of flares and wisdom.
All the doubts I could not face. All this time I wanted more.
With a line I'll mark the past as a symbol of beginning.
To the gods whose names we've lost and the names who gave in vain.
14. Something told me we'd be happy forever.
I don't see how this could change any of that.
I will follow your ghost as it climbs up the rock face
And lie with you on the grass above.
Gnashed his teeth and bit the recess lady's breast--
How could I forget?
And he hit me with a surprise left.
The color blue,
Inside a poem, the only
Words I ever knew.
17. It took some time before it entered my mind. Before
I kind of was blind, I didn't see.
It took some time, but when it did cross my mind,
It felt like something inside me was set free.
18. And when I hold you in my arms,
It scares me just to
Think that something so beautiful
Could just come apart in my hands.
That the jackal surely lied
When he said, please listen all:
Do not look behind these walls.
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence,
And nothing ever could.
21. On either side you'll find a door to be opened,
And one will have to close.
There's no way out but through.
I've been there before.
Don't please everyone--just you.
Tell me, have you ever been exposed like this?
Maybe we could savor that now.
Don't be so distant,
'Cause when you're lost,
I am solely there to share your grief.
When I woke up I went to her and looked her in the eyes.
25. What happened then--well, that's the play,
And he wouldn't want us to give it away...
On those very rare occasions when he steals into my heart.
Better to have lost him when the ties were barely binding,
Better the contempt of the familiar cannot start.
27. Down at the court house they're ringin' the flag down,
Long black line of cars snakin' slow through town.
Red sheets snappin' on the line.
With this ring will you be mine?
28. And I always thought this would be
The land of milk and honey,
Oh, but I come to find out
That it's all hate and money...
29. Every other touch
Runs as cold as ice.
If I get too close,
I may pay the price...
Makes life so boring.
So let's pray for something
To feel good in the morning.
Um. Some of those songs are really embarrassing.
Also, despite the lameness of my icons, I finally caved and made andthekey as a community to dump them in.
