we end up right here

(no subject)

Eleven Songs I'm Really Into (and Four for the Hell of It)

1. Without Mythologies - The Weakerthans
(i press my shoulder to this wall between us / i know you are behind me but i press my shoulder to this wall / determined not to turn around)

2. Astronaut (A Short History of Nearly Nothing) - Amanda Palmer
(everybody’s sick for something that they can find fascinating / everyone but you and even you aren’t feeling well)

3. The Scientist - Coldplay
(come back and haunt me / i want to rush to the start)

4. Rum Brave - Murder By Death
(when we meet, you will see / i will destroy everything of beauty)

5. The Gift of Paralysis - Envy on the Coast
(his neck is shattered by the tides / the ocean prays for his demise)

6. Imitosis - Andrew Bird
(it was then he heard his intuition say / we were all basically alone)

7. We Both Go Down Together - Colin Meloy
(and while the seagulls are crying / we fall but our souls are flying)

8. Propane Nightmares - Pendulum
(in a trail of fire i'll burn before you bury me / set your sights for the sun)

9. Explosive - Bond

10. Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors - Editors
(we've all been changed from what we were / our broken parts left smashed off the floor)

11. Floods - Fightstar
(blood will bleed the blind / when the only thing diseased their lives)

BONUS: Runs in the Family - Amanda Palmer
(i can run using every last ounce of energy / i cannot, i cannot, i cannot, run from my family)

BONUS: The Scientist - Aimee Mann

BONUS: "... Because All Suffering is Sweet to Me" [acoustic] - Envy on the Coast
(she stutters steps through dreams / and to relatives it seems that history just hasn't happened yet)

BONUS: Barbara Allen - Colin Meloy
(and he cried when she left his side / "hard-hearted barbrie allen!")
