GARDEN STATE- by HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW
The traffic's back for miles
On these quiet suburban roads
While the rubber necking strangers
Are dying to see this victim's wounds
Cause he's all alone
With his notebooks and poems
In this empty grave where he wrote
All of his secrets that became his lyrics
With no intent to show anyone

And we give and we give
But its all for nothing
We try to resist but we give
Everything and its all for nothing

So the panic sets and cycles
His mind for restless sleep
While the blood sucking leeches contaminate every line they read
Just leave him alone in this dark room
This white sheet tightly wrapped cocoon
Cause it's no secret I ****ing need this
Like I don't need anyone

It's like I'm falling asleep with my eyes open
Shutting down and off the lights
Cause after all of this it's all or nothing
Still I wouldn't try to fight
I've fallen asleep with my eyes open
Shutting down and off the lights
Cause after all of this it's all or nothing
Still I wouldn't try to fight
And you'll lie to all your friends
About sights you never saw
And you'll preach to all the press
About what you don't know at all

So let me drown so I can breathe again
I'm through choking and suffocating
On alter egos and alterior motives
Which weigh you down and take control of
The way you are and the things that you need
The life you live and the dreams that you dream
Distort and blur all in slow motion
They broke you down and now you're broken
And it's sadder than the saddes movie
I ever saw but without the beauty
So I stopped watching, I stopped caring
I lost all interest and I stopped wearing
These plastic smiles I'll wash my hands clean
I'll forget that you forgot about me
And I'll live the life, the big city feeling
Cause it's better than suburban dreaming
Living off the friends that hate me
Who talk **** on me
LIke I don't know who my real friends are
Anymore no I don't know you anymore
And it's sadder than the saddest movie
I ever saw but without the beauty
So I'll stop watching, I'll stop caring
Spill the ink and spill your guts again

Nick Drake - Fruit Tree


In the end he committed suicide, and this song just kinda sums up how he felt through a very clever metaphor of a fruit tree. People should have seen it coming.

Radiohead videotape
When I'm at the pearly gates
This'll be on my videotape
My videotape
My videotape

Mephistopheles is just beneath
And he's reaching up to grab me

This is one for the good days
And I have it all here in
Red, blue, green
Red, blue, green

You are my centre when I spin away
Out of control on videotape
On videotape
On videotape
On videotape

This is my way of saying goodbye
Because I can't do it fact to face
So I'm talking to you before
No matter what happens now
I won't be afraid
Because I know
Today has been the most perfect day I have ever seen

My Skin- Natalie Merchant

Most of Kate Bush's lyrics have deep meanings, but I think these are my faves.(The Man with the Child in his Eyes)

I hear him, before I go to sleep
And focus on the day thats been.
I realise hes there,
When I turn the light off and turn over.

Nobody knows about my man.
They think hes lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself
Listening to a man Ive never known before,

Telling me about the sea,
All his love, til eternity.

Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

Hes very understanding,
And hes so aware of all my situations.
And when I stay up late,
Hes always waiting, but I feel him hesitate.

Oh, Im so worried about my love.
They say, no, no, it wont last forever.
And here I am again, my girl,
Wondering what on earth Im doing here.
Maybe he doesnt love me.
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, hes here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

I'm sure that the action of recruiting the services of a prostitute is actually a metaphor and thus posseses a much deeper meaning.

And this one, about being desperate and striking out, I feel is reminiscent of man's eternal struggle throughout all aspects of life. Needing a woman is much like needing air, or food, but sometimes there is not enough to go around.


Please let me know your thoughts as I would love to have a deeper discussion on these things.

Midlake - Rulers, Ruling All Things

I have been cruel and kind without knowing
I fell into silence overwhelmed by these days
For I had been shown empty rulers, ruling all things

Thinking the world was mine to lay hold of
I breathed in the promise of maiden and man
But each had their own illusions to hold on to

Thinking the world was mine to be lost in
I ran with a freedom and sang in between
For I had the path of wonder, there before me
