Still Alive - (written by) Jonathan Coulton

This was a triumph
I'm making a note here
HUGE SUCCESS
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction
Aperture Science

we do what we must because we can
for the good of all of us
except the ones who are dead
but there's no sense crying over every mistake
you just keep on trying till you run out of cake!
and the science gets done and you make a neat gun
for the people who are still alive

I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
even though you broke my heart and killed me
and tore me to pieces
and threw every piece into a fire
as they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a wonderful line
and we're out of beta we're releasing on time
so I'm glad I got burned
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive

go ahead and leave me
I think I prefer to stay inside
maybe you'll find someone else to help you
maybe black mesa
that was a joke, haha, fat chance
anyway this cake is great, it's so delicious and moist
look at me still talking when there's science to do
when I look out there it makes me glad I'm not you
I've experiments to run, there is research to be done
on the people who are still alive

and believe me I am still alive
I'm doing science and I'm still alive
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive
While you are dying I'll be still alive
and when you're dead I'll be still alive
STILL ALIVE
still alive

Werewolf - Cocorosie

In a dream I was a werewolf
My soul was filled with crystal light
Lavender ribbons of rain sang
Ridding my heart of mortal fight

Broken sundown fatherless showdown
Gun hip swollen lip bottle sip yeah I suck dick
Lose grip on gravity falls sky blinding crumbling walls
River sweep away my memories of
Children’s things a young mother’s love
Before the yearning song of flesh on flesh
Young hearts burst open wounds bleed fresh
A young brother skinny and tall my older walks
Oceanward and somber, slumber sleeping
Flowers in the water,
But I’m just his daughter
Walking down an icy grave
leading to my Schizophrenic father.
Weeping willow won’t you wallow louder
Searching for my father’s power

I’ma shake you off though
Get up on that horse and
Ride into the sunset
Look back with no remorse

He’s a black magic wielder some say a witch
Wielded darkness when he was wilein’ on his mom’s
And born child and he was the bastard that broke
Up the marriage evil doer doing evil from a baby carriage
And he was born with the same blue eyes
Crystal ships dripping with ice, diamonds coruscate
In the night fireworks electric bright
And now he’s got his own two sons
Tried to hide his tears in a world of fun
But loveless bedrooms filled with doom
Bring silent heartache July to June
Swoon over new young hot flame
Mourn the memories later
Laugh now aligator

Oh in a dream
My father came to me
And made me swear that I’d keep
What sacred to me
And if I get the choice
To live in his name
I pray my way through the Rain
Singing Oh happy day

I don’t mean to close the door
But for the record my heart is sore
You blew through me like bullet holes
Left staind on my sheets and stains
On my soul
You left me broke down beggin for change
Had to catch a ride with a man who’s deranged
He had your hands and my father’s face
Another western vampire different time same place
I had dreams that brings me sadness
Rain much deeper than a river
Sorrow flow through me in tiny waves of shivers
Corny movies make me reminisce
Break me down easy on this generic love [censored]
First kiss frog and princess

The Truth Beneath The Rose - Within Temptation


Give me strength to face the truth
The doubt within my soul
No longer I can justify
The bloodshed in his name

Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
Pray with me so I will find the gate to Heaven’s door
I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
Here is the darkest side of me
(Forgive me my sins)

The field of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
(Forgive me my sins)

Pray for me 'cause I have lost my faith in holy wars
This paradise denied to me 'cause I can't take no more

Has darkness taken over me
Consumed my mortal soul?
All my virtues sacrificed
Can Heaven be so cruel?

I believed it would justify the means
It had a hold over me
(Forgive me my sins)

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
Here is the darkest side of me
(Forgive me my sins)

The field of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
(Forgive me my sins)

I'm hoping, I'm praying
I won't get lost between two hearts
Follow a sin
The truth lies in between

Give me the strength to face the wrong that I have done
Now that I know
The darkest side of me

How can blood be your salvation
And justify the pain
That we have caused throughout the times

Will I learn what's truly sacred
Will I redeem my soul
Will truth set me free

Blinded to see
The cruelty of the beast
Here is the darkest side of me
(Forgive me my sins)

The field of my dreams
Deceived all I have seen
Forgive me for what I have been
(Forgive me my sins)

This is one of the songs that makes me sad...


Lua-Bright Eyes
I know that it is freezing but I think we have to walk
I keep waving at the taxis; they keep turning their lights off
But Julie knows a party at some actor’s west side loft
Supplies are endless in the evening; by the morning they’ll be gone.

When everything is lonely I can be my own best friend
I get a coffee and the paper; have my own conversations
With the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like [censored].

And I know you have a heavy heart; I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me I’m not a gamble you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning won’t exist.

You’re looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
You just keep going to the bathroom always say you’ll be right back
Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think you’ve got it bad
But what’s so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag.

I’ve got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on the train
If you promise to stay conscious I will try and do the same
We might die from medication, but we sure killed all the pain
But what was normal in the evening, by the morning seems insane.

And I’m not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
The reasons all have run away but the feeling never did
It’s not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is
What’s so simple in the moonlight, now is so complicated
What’s so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments
He said, "I died for you one time, but never again"

I've got a problem with everyone I know
I've got a problem I want everyone to know
I got home late last night from the punk(PUNK) rock(ROCK) show
I say it sucked because I'm emo

I'm gonna cry I'm gonna scream
I'm gonna say what I don't mean
I'm gonna cry I'm gonna mope
I'm gonna give up all my hope
Bringing everybody down
Everybody with a frown
Bringing everybody down
Wait for death to come around

Cheer up emo kid
It's a brand new day
Cheer up emo kid
It'll be okay
Cheer up emo kid
It's a brand new day
Cheer up emo kid
It'll be okay

I like to listen to my favorite band the cure
I'd ask her out but she'd say no!
No for sure

I'm gonna cry I'm gonna scream
I'm gonna say what I don't mean
I'm gonna cry I'm gonna mope
I'm gonna give up all my hope
Bringing everybody down
Everybody with a frown
Bringing everybody down
Wait for death to come around

Cheer up emo kid
It's a brand new day
Cheer up emo kid
It'll be okay
Cheer up emo kid
It's a brand new day
Cheer up emo kid
It'll be okay

Cheer up emo kid
It's a brand new day
Cheer up emo kid
It'll be okay
Cheer up emo kid

Cheer up emo kid
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Cheer up emo kid
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Cheer up emo kid
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Cheer up emo kid
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me

Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me
Nobody likes me
Everybody hates me

Everybody hates me

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Nobody likes me
I guess I'll go eat worms!

Nemo - Nightwish

This is me for forever
One of the lost ones
The one without a name
Without an honest heart as compass

This is me for forever
One without a name
These lines the last endeavor
To find the missing lifeline

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

My flower
Withered between
The pages two and three
The once and forever bloom gone with my sins

Walk the dark path
Sleep with angels
Call the past for help
Touch me with your love
And reveal to me my true name

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
Oh how I wish to dream again
Once and for all
And all for once
Nemo my name for evermore

Nemo sailing home
Nemo letting go

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
Oh how I wish to dream again
Once and for all
And all for once
Nemo my name for evermore

Nemo my name for evermore

The Red - Chevelle

They say freak,
When you're singled out,
The red, well it filters through.

So lay down, the threat is real,
When his sight goes red again.
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again.

This change, he won't contain,
Slip away, to clear your mind.
When asked, who made it show,
The truth, he gives in to most.

So lay down, the threat is real,
When his sight goes red again.

So lay down, the threat is real,
When his sight goes red again.
So lay down, the threat is real,
When his sight goes red again.

Seeing red again,
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again,
Seeing red again,
Seeing red....

They say freak...
When you're singled out.
The red, it filters through...

A good man doesn't drink
And I've been drinking alone
So what does that make me?

My hands they always shake
And no one's calling my phone
So what does that make me?

And I know the kid with his guitar
So drunk and anxious
Has been done to death
But tell me what hasn't
I'll try it

Because I'm selfish enough
to wanna get better
But I'm backwards enough
not to take any steps to get there

And when you realize it's a pattern
And not a phase
It's what you've become
And it's what you will stay
That's ballgame

'Cause I don't got room in my life
for anyone else
And I've driven away all the
people that could help
And I still don't even know what I
need to do to fix myself

And there's a clamp around my chest
It tightens every time I lapse into
Another sorry story

About my miserable collapse
A bronze box I keep encased in glass
And dust off whenever I want your pity

'Cause lately I've had to come to grips
with scope and figure
How my problems stack up in a world
two steps from ruin
(Or maybe it's rapture)

Well, either way, I realize that my [censored]'s
about as small as it could be
But that makes me feel worse for even feeling
this bad in the first place

'Cause there's a war starting soon, and all
the flags'll be waving
And Daniel's 20-year-old friend will be ready,
and willing, and waiting
He's a Marine and he told me

And that makes me sad
Really, really [censored] sad
But at least he'll act

I'll just bite my tongue and then say:
"Daniel, you wish him luck"
I pray that he comes back
For his mother's sake, and then I'll drink
those thoughts away
I've gotten good at that

'Cause when you realize it's a pattern
And not a phase
It's what you've become
And it's what you will stay
That's ballgame
Oh oh oh

Yeah when you realize it's a pattern
And not a phase
It's what you've become
And it's what you will stay
That's ballgame

Yeah when you realize it's a pattern
And not a phase
It's what you've become
And it's what you will stay
That's ballgame
Yeah, you were right about me, but can I get myself out from underneath this guilt that will crush me? in the choir, I saw our sad Messiah he was bored and tired of my laments
He said, "I died for you one time, but never again"

Wolf and Raven - Sonata Arctica

Grant me a wish my master, take heed of me.
I have been a loyal servant, heartfelt, humble.
Gave up what belonged to me, gave up my greed.
My self-examination made me see to be me.

I am now like Judas, done
Ashamed of what I've become.
This fear of life I wear as a ring,
To bask in your favour I will kill the king.

You say I am invincible, I cannot die.
I know, but anyway, those words they maim me.
Grant me a wish my master, compassion please...
I'd like to be a human. Maybe one day...

I am now like Judas, done
Ashamed of what I've become.
This fear of life I wear as a ring,
To bask in your favour I will kill the king.

(Entreaty)
Let me go
Master, I hate you so.
How can I sleep my nights,
While my whole being cries?


I tried to be like everyone, open my soul,
But what I had to give resulted loathing.
Enchanted by the power, licked by the grace,
One beautiful black flower were the end of the human race!

With pride now face my faith,
King and Queen now lie in state.
This fear of life I wear as a ring,
I bask in your favor, I have killed the king!

(Entreaty)
Let me go
Master, I hate you so.
How can I sleep my nights,
When my whole being cries?


I had a nightmare,
The Wolf eating The Raven.
Entrails of life on my plate
And I ate 'em...

Interested in what I see,
Try that Rorschach test on me.
Have you seen the beauty of the
Enticing beast?

(Entreaty)
Let me go
Master, I hate you so.
I cannot sleep my nights
When my whole being cries!

(Entreaty)
Let me go
Master, I hate you so!
I cannot sleep my nights,
When my whole being cries!
If you'd get put to sleep, like an old dog you're better off, should you get put to sleep.
I've been cautious with the words I extend,
Allow this year before the world starts to end.


Pray for us all... My dearest Apollo, I'll be Burning Star IV.

Sugar, Sugar - The Archies x3

Sugar,
Oh, Honey Honey.
You are my candy girl,
and you got me wanting you.
Honey,
Oh, Sugar, Sugar.
You are my candy girl
and you got me wanting you.

I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you.
(I just can't believe it's true).
I just can't believe the wonder of this feeling too.
(I just can't believe it's true).

Sugar,
Oh, Honey Honey.
You are my candy girl,
and you got me wanting you.
Honey,
Oh, Sugar, Sugar.
You are my candy girl
and you got me wanting you.

When I kissed you girl,
I knew how sweet a kiss could be.
(I know how sweet a kiss can be)
Like the summer sunshine
pour your sweetness over me.
(Pour your sweetness over me).

Oh pour little sugar on me honey (sugar)
Pour little sugar on me baby (honey honey)
When you make love so sweet (Yeah Yeah Yeah.)
Pour little sugar on me (oh yeah)
Pour little sugar on me honey
Pour little sugar on me baby
I'm gonna make love so sweet (hey hey hey)
Pour little sugar on me honey.

Ah sugar.
Oh honey, honey.
You are my candy, girl,
and you got me wanting you.

Oh honey (honey, honey, sugar, sugar)
Sugar, sugar
You are my candy girl.

Movin' On - Good Charlotte

When I think about my life
I wonder if I will survive
To live to see in twenty five or will I just fall?
I call my friends, they just keep dyin'
People round me always cryin'
In this place that I like to call my home
Well not everybody knows that everybody goes to a better place
And not everybody knows that everybody could be livin' their last days
But the hard times to come and we'll keep movin' on
We're movin' up

Keep movin' on, and on and on
(Life, hope, truth, trust, faith, pride, love)
Keep movin' on, and on and on
(Lust, on without the things we've lost)
(The things we've gained we'll take with us)

And also I've got are these two hands
To make myself a better man
I wonder if I'll ever see the end of this
With all this rain it just keeps fallin'
On my head and now I'm callin'
Out to someone else to help me make it through
Not everybody knows that everybody goes to a better place
And not everybody knows that everybody could be livin' their last days
But the hard times to come and we'll keep movin' on
We're movin' up

Keep movin' on, and on and on
(Life, hope, truth, trust, faith, pride, love)
Keep movin' on, and on and on
(Lust, pain, hate, lies, guilt, laugh, cry, live)
Keep movin' on and on and on and on
(Die, some friends become enemies)
On and on and on and on
(Some friends become your family)
On and on and on and on
(Make the best with what you're given)
On and on and on and on
(This ain't dyin', this is livin')

So we're movin' on and we've got nothin' to prove
To anyone
'Cause we'll get through
We're movin' on and on and on and on and
On and on and on and on and
On and on and on and on and
On and on and on and on and

Keep movin' on, and on and on
(Life, hope, truth, trust, faith, pride, love)
Keep movin' on, and on and on
(Lust, pain, hate, lies, guilt, laugh, cry, live)
Keep movin' on and on and on and on
(Die, some friends become enemies)
On and on and on and on
(Some friends become your family)
On and on and on and on
(Make the best with what you're given)
On and on and on and on
(This ain't dyin', this is livin')

The Tide - The Spill Canvas

And there's three, count 'em three
Children playing on the beach
They were eager to learn,
To be taught and to teach

There's Veronica
She's biting her lip
As she watches the waves turn white at the tip
And there's Vada
Radiating with joy
And luckily she still can't stand the sight of a boy
And lastly there's Dade
His hair dances in the wind
And he's wondering what love is
And why it has to end

And he can't understand
How everyone goes on breathing when true love ends
His mother whispers quietly...
Heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you actually feel alive
So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love is just a hoax so forget anything that you have heard
And live for the moment now

And there's three, count 'em three
Children growing on the beach
They were eager to learn,
To be taught and to teach

There's Veronica
She's licking her lips
As she waits for her real, first passionate kiss
And there's Vada
Can't admit her jealousy
Of her sister Veronica, and how she's so pretty (and how she's so pretty)
Lastly there's Dade
Still sitting on the dock
Ponders his life, and he skips his rocks
And he wonders when his father will return
But he's not coming back

And he can't understand
How everyone goes on breathing when true love ends
His mother whispers quietly...
Heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you actually feel alive
So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love is just a hoax so forget everything that you have heard (forget everything)

And there's three, count 'em three
Children missing from the beach
They were eager to learn,
To be taught and to teach

But the sad thing
Is that they never lived passed the age of fifteen
Due to neglect from their mother
Who was bed ridden by her ex-lover, their father
She didn't even notice, or pay much attention
As the tide came in and swept her three into the ocean
Now all her advice, it seems useless

No, heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you touch her and you feel alive
So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love's completely real, so forget anything that you've heard
And live for the moment now
Decisions to decisions are made and not bought, but I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot. I guess not.

Why Do You Let Me Stay Here? - She & Him

Why do let you me stay here?
All by myself
Why don't you come and play here?
I'm just sitting on the shelf

Why don't you sit right down and stay awhile?
We like the same things and I like your style
Its not a secret; why do you keep it?
I'm just sitting on the shelf

I got to get your presence
Let's make it known
I think you're just so pleasant
I would like you for my own

Why don't you sit right down and make me smile? (uh huh)
You make me feel like I am just a child
Why do you end it?
Just give me credit
I'm just sitting on the shelf



\:D/
Don't wake me; I plan on sleeping in
There is a light that never goes out~

Tool - Vicarious

Eye on the TV
'Cause tragedy thrills me,
Whatever flavour it happens to be,

Like:
"Killed by the husband" ...
"Drowned by the ocean" ...
"Shot by his own son" ...
"She used a poison in his tea,
Then she kissed him goodbye"
That's my kind of story,
It's no fun til someone dies.

Don't look me at like I am a monster,
Frown out your one face, but with the other, you
Stare like a junkie into the TV,
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
Watches him die,
Hands to the sky cryin "why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too - don't lie.


Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'.
Neither the brave nor bold
Nor brightest of stories told,
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'.

I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so why can't we just admit it?


Blood like rain fallin' down,
Drum on grave and ground.

Part vampire, part warrior,
Carnivore and voyeur.
Stare at the transmittal,
Sing to the death rattle.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie.


Credulous at best,
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
And give a listen,
Shouldn't have to say it all again.

The universe is hostile,
So impersonal,
Devour to survive,
So it is, so it's always been ...

We all feed on tragedy,
It's like blood to a vampire.

Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.
I need to watch things die, from a distance.
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies.
You all need it too, don't lie.
