make your mark this time

(no subject)

another leech post! today's theme is Songs Of Which I Greatly Enjoy the Lyrics of (the most recent, anyway). you know the drill: comments greatly, greatly appreciated, don't tell the coppers, etc. i have more radiohead (though who doesn't), fleet foxes, and sea wolf in case anyone wants it.

bastard child that I am
you can see it in my swagger
in the palmist's lines of my hands
and my lips that bud like daggers
look out young son - grand ole party

and you will go to mykonos
with a vision of a gentle coast
and a sun to maybe dissipate
shadows of the mess you made
mykonos - fleet foxes

with your beautiful hair so displayed on the chair
and your head on the arm
and your legs in the air
and the words dancing out from your lips
like a sad ballet
song for the dead - sea wolf

i'd love to see inside your mind, to tear it all apart
to cut you open with a knife and find your sacred heart
i'd love to take your satin dolls and tear them all to shreds
i'd love to mess your pretty hair, i'd love to see you dead
insanity - oingo boingo

oh you look so tired
mouth slack and wide
ill-housed and ill-advised
your face is as mean as your life has been
jack the ripper - colin meloy

in pitch dark I go walking in your landscape
nroken branches trip me as i speak
just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there
just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there
there there. (the boney king of nowhere.) - radiohead
