A Song a Day

I see people always posting music here and there. I know this will be fun for myself and give me a reason to pop on even if I am feeling down so I was thinking of posting one song a day accompanied by the lyrics. Songs that give you strength, make you feel less alone or just make you happy. It would be cool for everyone/anyone to participate but I was hoping ONE submission a day so it looks nice and tidy. Any one want to join? You can say something about the song if you want to first, or not. Any genre welcome :) I will probably post mostly depressing stuff because that is what I listen too.

But I will try to start things off on a positive note since I have been dealing with a lot of issues and today might be a good day to start off with a fun song. Also a good way to start the thread. So here is one of my favorite love songs.



I just found out that my girlfriend's a robot
She said that she didn't want me to know but
We went for a swim one moonlit night
And she came out rusty where she went in white

I took her apart 'cause she broke my heart
I took her apart yeah
I took her apart 'cause she broke my heart
I took her apart yeah

I picked my baby up and I laid her on a lathe
I wanted to see how her body was made
I doctored my baby with a wrench and pliers
And littered the kitchen with her screws and wires

She slices and she dices she makes Julienne Fries
She locks up my garage door every night
She put new life into my washer and my dryer
But every time I turn the toaster on I'm afraid that I'll fry her

'Cause lately I've been waking in the middle of the night
What I did to my baby's body just wasn't right
There's a buzz all around me I know where it's coming from
She's shooting through my house in a 60 cycle hum

I put her back together 'cause I missed her all the time
Man, we had something going and we got along real fine
Now we're really happy and we're never gonna part
She's my 120 girl with the 240 heart

Now we're really happy and it's time to settle down
I'm satisfied at last with my two feet on the ground
Now I know what I want to do with my life
She's got her outlets and I've got mine.

A sad song about a bitter break up and a bleak outlook on the future. Much like myself. The whole album "Marked for Death" contains a lot of powerful lyrics and Emma Ruth Rundle has a very pretty voice and is a great lyricist. I have been doing a lot of lounging around listening to depressing music and her album has been getting its fair amount of play.


It was right that we did meet each other in each other’s eyes
It was right that we did see each other in our shadow sides
It was wrong then too that crazy love, loves crazy as it does
And each of us and both of us so crazy, as it was

Who else is going to love someone like you that’s marked for death?
Who else is going to be with you when you breathe your last?
Who else is going to take my place and hold and keep you safe?
Who else is going to stay?
Who else is going to stay?

You were right on time to break your head and make the death bed
You were right on time to crash those galaxies and flat-line
You were right on time to make the light inside of me a life
You were right on time to meet me, crazy love, and watch us die

Who else is going to love someone like you, that’s marked for death?
Who else is going to be with you when you breathe your last?
Who else is going my place and hold and keep you safe?
Who else would ever stay?

Who else would
Who else would
Who else would ever stay?
Who else would ever stay?
Who else is going to love someone like me?

Who else is going to love someone like me that’s marked for death?
Who else is going to be with me when I breathe it all?
Who else would take your place and hold and keep me safe?
Who else would ever stay?
Who else would ever stay?

I have been having a hard time. There is a handful of bands that are so depressing that it goes beyond normal angst or depression and into utter despair. Today I am feeling that way :/ Trigger heavy song. Sorry tomorrow I will post a ridiculously happy song to counteract this mess. But today I feel like a failure :(


And I, I've been lonely
And I, I've been blind
And I, I've learned nothing
So my hands are firmly tied
To the sinking lead-weight
of failure

I've worked hard all my life
Money slips through my hands
My face in the mirror tells me
It's no surprise that I am
Pushing the stone up the hill
of failure

They tempt me with violence
They punish me with ideals
And they crush me with an image
Of my life that's nothing but unreal
Except on the goddamned slaveship
of failure

I'll drown here trying
To get up for some air
But each time I think I breathe
I'm laid on with a double share
Of the punishing burden
of failure

I don't deserve to be down here
But I'll never leave
And I, I've learned one thing
You can't escape the beast
In the null and void pit
of failure

When I get my hands on some money
I'll kiss its green skin
And I'll ask its dirty face
"Where the hell have you been?"
"I am the fuel that fires the engines
of failure."

I'll be old and broken down
I'll forget who and where I am
I'll be senile or forgotten
But I'll remember and understand
You can bank your hard-earned money
on failure

I saw my father crying
I saw my mother break her hand
On a wall that wouldn't weep
But that certainly held in
The mechanical moans of a dying man
Who was a failure

My back hurts me when I bend
Because I carry a load
And my brain hurts like a knife-hole
Because I've yet to be shown
How to pull myself out from
The sucking quicksand
of failure

Some people lie in hell
Many bastards succeed
But I, I've learned nothing
I can't even elegantly bleed
Out the poison blood
of failure

I am breaking my own rule because I can to counteract the above. Vic Chesnutt sadly did take his own life but his lyrics always showed his constant struggles this is one song that makes me feel better about my life and makes me feel less alone.



it's okay, you can take a condom
it's okay, you can take a valtrex
and it's okay, you can get an abortion
and then keep on keepin' on
and then keep on keepin' on

it's okay, you can take a prilosec
and it's okay, you can take biaxin
it's okay, you can get a quadruple bypass
and then keep on keepin' on
and then keep on keepin' on

you are never alone
you are never alone
you are never alone
you are

it's okay in moderation
it's okay cuttin' down
it's okay, you can quit tomorrow
but for now, keep on keepin' on
but for now, keep on keepin' on

it's okay, you can take the bible
and it's okay, you can be saved
and it's okay, you can be forgiven
and for now, keep on keepin' on
for now, keep on keepin' on

you are never alone
you are never alone
you are never alone
you are

Cleaning day. Cleaning music. Punks can be nice too.


Be nice, say thank you
And please once in a while
It's a beautiful world we live in
So give your brother a smile
Turn to a stranger
And give him a pat on the back
It's not that hard to do
Maybe the friendship will last

Wonderful! (Wonderful)
It's so wonderful! (wonderful)
Wonderful! (Wonderful)
It's so wonderful!

Don't smoke, don't litter
Don't step on a beetle or ant
Always walk on the sidewalk
Never tread on the grass
Be kind, be courteous
Open the door for your mom
Help an old person across the street
Give the bum something to eat

Wonderful! (Wonderful)
It's so wonderful! (wonderful)
Wonderful! (Wonderful)
It's so wonderful!

Be nice, say thank you

This one comes with a music video! 80's new wave goodness.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuxss1kBQWw


This is my private life
I have no friends to fear
I've got no problems no cross to bear
If you can find me
Come and get me out of here

This is my private life
This is my private life
This is my private life

These are my private things
There they are against the wall
The dirty pictures, religious objects
These are my private things
Come and get them out of here

This is my private bed
This is where I lie at night
Staring at a light bulb hanging on the ceiling
Waiting for a dream to
Come and get me out of here

Here in my humble room at night
I often wonder what goes on out there
What makes them runs o scared
I often stare at the people passing by
But they can't see me through my window shades
Just like I'm not even there

This is my private life
This is my private life
This is my private life
There's something dangerous I like

This is my private life
I know my problems aren't your fault
What I really want to know
Has it always been this way

This is my private life
This is my private life
This is my private life
Come and get me out of here

Hopeless Romantic


I had a girl
She is the most beautiful one in the world
and I love her so much
I wanna marry her and make a family
and then settle down for life
The other day I found out that she was cheating me with another man
I was down and broken hearted
I never wanna mess with other girls

Well yesterday I went down to town And Melissa
She crossed my way
I wanna marry her and make a family
and then settle down for life
and then settle down for life
and then settle down for life
and then settle down for life

(since I missed yesterday) I have not really posted any electronic music, which I listen to a lot of but have neglected to post because I don't know if it will find as much appreciation here. I don't really have anything to base that off of hahah But I just do.. @JDot I did think of you when picking this song. Mostly because there was a time when me and my friend would always just listen to one of three albums when he came over. Grimes-Visions, Trust-S/T or Crystal Castles- S/T. I have a lot of fond memories attached to those three albums of happier times with good friends :/ I don't listen to them as much.


So leave it what it is
Just give it time
Try your best to smile
Give her lengths of love
But the body is gone
Body is gone
Fondle candy wall
Evening is slime
What a waste of time
And although you still get by
Searching for the things
That make you come alive
It goes down to this
It's a why you're here
Oh why you walk
Fondle candy wall
Open hands
Well, that's the style
Bones crack many years
These gamut boys
Millionaires
Take me out on a ride
I like you well enough
To give you mother's arc
The streaks survives, in the night
I hope it comes after life

I should say I don't listen to them as much anymore since I don't have people come over as much and it was always a certain atmosphere at the home that those albums created such a good atmosphere. They were all relaxing albums. As poppy as Grimes is I think her music is really nice to relax too especially oblivion.

Do you have a song that just always brings you down, makes you think of all your past mistakes? Well that is this song for me. I find myself gently singing it to myself sometimes when I am on a walk, with a head full of regrets of things I have done in the past. That has always been my weakness. My memory of all the painful life moments. But this is also a very beautiful song I always find myself wrapped up in it when it comes on. I have to stop and reflect. It has a strong effect on me.


Someday... Someday...

Made myself a promise
When I was 5 years old
I'd dig my way to Australia
Cos England was too cold
But maybe 15 inches down
I cut right through a worm -
Simply was beside myself...

But I learned.

Made my girl a promise
She just turned 19
I'd take her to America
I would satisfy her dreams
For months we'd plan a future
But one day I just felt tired.
Never left my number...

I couldn't even cry.

Someday...Someday...

(I'll make it up to you)

Made a lot of promises
In just as many years
I'd be everything for everyone,
There was nothing insincere.
However much I try
Seems it always ends in tears...

Someday - I'll make it up to you.

Someday - make it up to you.

Don't think about how we are ruining the planet.. Don't think about how we are ruining the planet.. Don't think about how we are ruining the planet... Dammit I started thinking about how we are ruining the planet.

This song is a pretty harsh critique on treatment of women and the planet. Which I kind of see as "Mother Earth" in the concept of the song, so you can say it is a critique of everything associated with nurturing nature of women and the destruction of that.

The song sounds so upbeat in a stark comparison of the lyrics. This is one of those few faster paced songs with no chorus I love to sing along to. But I also always forget the odd line here and there haha so I do that odd drop in and drop back into the lyrics.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGSZp59RTck

You said I am despicable, you said I am a whore,
I am young enough to have it all but I don't want any more.
Dress me up in plastic and my skin is getting sore
I am wanking in the corner waiting for the nuclear war.
Hoarding all the garbage and it's filling up my car,
my suffering is meaningless, I'm stinking like the tar,
that smothers all the grass and lets me drive you to the bar
and if you want to handle me just tell me who you are.

My tits are made of silicone just like the earth and sea.
I am swallowing more estrogen so you won't impregnate me.
Swarming swarming little bratsies, hollering and mean,
eat your oily cereal and keep your nostrils clean.
The chemicals are coming for you keeping you alive,
the bees are up and vomiting outside the old beehive.
Swarming swarming little beasties, sniveling and weak,
the strong are taking everything and stamping on the meek.

Baby if you love me you should stab me in the lung
and let me strangle you before your breath blocks out the sun.
You're going to die anyway so let me kill you now.
I'll send you back to heaven cause you're already in hell.
You're going to die anyway so let me kill you nice.
Everything is paid for and I'm puking up the price.
My vomit is a rainbow-colored smorgasbord of snurt,
in every colored chemical that made my belly hurt.

The microcosmic spiraled eggs inside my uterus are sparkling and bursting with the greenest yellow pus.
The milk that feeds my baby from my breast is flowing black.
It looks like oil and smells like death and I can't hold it back.
I fell asleep and dreamland panthers tore me limb from limb.
My lover was a big black cat.
I couldn't handle him.
I wanted to get water from a soft and slimy stream,
but all the critters by the river died inside my dreams.

Floating on their backs they turned their bellies to the sky.
I sprinkled black oil from my breast on each and every eye.
I took a mouthful of the cheapest Dominican rum
and blew a ball of fire from the flame inside my tongue.
All the bodies in the brine were quickly set alight.
They floundered there and let their furry flames fire up the night.
Patiently the panthers pieced me back together again.
I woke up and I welcomed back the ugly world of men.

Shall I join you?
My song of the day is Scared or Selfish, by Kye Kye.
Gone, with my pride
Scared I'll never know who you are
But I'll try to realize what you've said and I'll try to erase my fear
Scared or selfish who are you?
Blame myself for what I use
I want to have you
I want to have you
Whole
Slip as I think, become everything that I speak
So I'll try to recreate what you see and I'll try to embrace this whole

Seven Sisters by Celldweller. One of my favorite work out songs, because it has a beat but is also very soothing.
“Look up at the stars son” my father was saying
“Now go wish upon one then spend your life waiting”

The Northern Lights could hear me whispering
Hunter Orion are you listening?
Nine rings of Saturn circle endlessly
And I’m still waiting

I cast my hope upon The Pleiades
The Seven Sisters who would come for me
They’d fall to earth to grant a child’s dream
But I’m still waiting

Alone in this darkness there’s a dream still worth saving
I cling to a promise, and I am still waiting

A sad song. I generally don't like "Neo-Folk" but Rome is a exception.



All passion spent
We stay deaf to everything
All lost a shame
All words of peace have died away
Both on our lips
And in our hearths
All passion spent

Now
To go on and fail me
Come on and break me for good
'cause sometimes
We feel alive
Oh, why don't you fail me
Go on and break me once more
Let's combine
In a dance of war

Either left to rot in difference
Or left to drown in despair
You shall turn around
And you should die from this life and be reborn to mine

Now
To go on and fail me
Come on and break me for good
'cause sometimes
We feel alive

Oh, why don't you fail me
Go on and break me once more
Lets come bind
In a dance of war

Go on and fail me
Come on and break me once more
'cause sometimes
We come alive

To be more than un-involved
And all so cold and cruel
And most of all so ugly
And imprecise

Oh, I felt like I was going to dive
Into a cruel sea of lust when
She said: "Saviors, they come and go."

Oh, I felt like I was going to dive
Into a cruel sea of lust when
She said: "Saviors, they come and go."

Oh, why don't you fail me
Come on and break me for good
'cause sometimes
We feel alive
Oh, why don't you fail me
Go on and break me once more
Let's combine
In a dance of war

Funny, this song is an enigma to me. One day it soothes my nerves and other days it puts me on edge.


Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye,
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built,
Everything where it belongs
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart,
And it's all right where it belongs

What if everything around you,
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks,
Would you find yourself find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head?
Just creations of your own
Your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
And you really oughta know
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find the ones,
Are you hiding in the trees?

What if everything around you,
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you used to know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks,
Would you find yourself, find yourself afraid to see?
