PATRICK WOLF - TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
the day our house collapsed
I went down stream.
I followed the swans
like I follow my dreams.
oh, I was living on borrowed time
in a borrowed house
for a borrowed crime.
in need of help I came to your door
saw the spike of the railings
from the 23rd floor.
singing, "build your castle, stop collecting stones
and the river bed shall not be your home."

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN - NOTHING LASTS FOREVER
I want it now, I want it now;
don't tell me that my ship is coming in.
nothing comes to those who wait
time's running out the door you're running in.
and I want more than I can get
just trying to, trying to,
trying to forget.

TUNNG - BULLETS
our blood and guts are out
we spread our bones across the table at night.
we cut our fingers off
to give ourselves those little extra insights.
we're catching bullets with our
heads and hearts and
all the darkest parts of us
it's strange to find such light
in such endless night.

FRANZ FERDINAND - WALK AWAY
swapped my innocence for pride
crushed the end within my stride
said I'm strong now,
I know that I'm a leaver.
why don't you walk away?
no buildings will fall down
no quake will split the ground
the sun won't swallow the sky;
statues will not cry.
and I'm not cold, I am old
at least as old as you are.
and as you walk away
my headstone crumbles down.

WOODKID - IRON
the sound of iron shots is stuck in my head
the thunder of the drums dictates
the rhythm of the falls, the number of deaths,
the rising of the hordes ahead.
from the dawn of time to the end of days
I will have to run away.
I want to feel the pain and the bitter taste
of the blood on my lips again.
this steady burst of snow is burning my hands.
I'm frozen to the bones, I am
a million miles from home, I'm walking away;
I can't remind your eyes, your face.

GUIDED BY VOICES - BACK TO THE LAKE
how can I tell you
all that is wrong?
nothing invites you
can't get along
with you now.
and I try to -
there is a page.
it's still unwritten.
why can't you find
time in your schedule
to pick up...
oh, pick up, for god's sake
when we call you back to the lake.

THE LIBERTINES - DON'T LOOK BACK INTO THE SUN
don’t look back into the sun
now you know that the time is come.
and they said
it would never come for you, oh oh oh oh.
but when they played that song at the death disco,
it started fast, but it ends so slow
and all the time it just reminded me of you.

THE BOY LEAST LIKELY TO - I'M GLAD I HITCHED MY APPLE WAGON TO YOUR STAR
we quietly slipped across
the border into Arkansas.
but still we couldn't find
what it was we were looking for.
so we trucked on down to try our luck
along the Rio Grande,
but I couldn't help but notice how
the little things that used to
make us happy made us sad.
but still I'm glad I hitched
my apple wagon to your star.
I'm happy if you're happy
but it breaks my heart.
I didn't even notice it
til it fell apart.
I'm glad I hitched
my apple wagon to your star.

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN - PEOPLE ARE STRANGE (DOORS COVER)
people are strange when you're a stranger;
faces look ugly when you're alone.
women seem wicked when you're unwanted.
streets are uneven when you're down.
when you're strange, faces come out of the rain.
when you're strange, no one remembers your name —
when you're strange.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS - ROAD MOVIE TO BERLIN
we're in a road movie to Berlin
can't drive out the way we drove in.
so sneak out this glass of bourbon
and we'll go.
we were once so close to heaven
Peter came out and gave us medals
declaring us the nicest of the damned.
time won't find the lost
it'll sweep up our skeleton bones.
so take the wheel
and I will take the pedals.
