I'll quit my job
The day I die
I'll quit my job the day I die
I break my back
And never cry
I break my back and never cry
I'm losing all my hair, losing all my hair
Losing all my hair because a man provides
I'm standing on a chair, standing on a chair
I'm standing on a chair because I earn my life

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and I tell it to my wife
Jesus Christ, don't tell me not to hurry
I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't always right

While you're asleep
I'm terrified
While you're asleep I'm terrified
I see the end
Before my eyes
I see the end before my eyes
A marker on a grave, a marker on a grave
A marker on a grave and I know I'm the one who died
And underneath the name, underneath the name
Underneath my name, it says "He earned his life"

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and my father never lied
Jesus Christ, better learn how to forage
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive

I wish my life was on a graph
So I knew how much left I have
To earn tonight
It burns too bright
I think about myself a lot
'Cause it's the only one I got
To earn this life
(What have I done) To earn this life

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and I tell it to my wife
Jesus Christ, don't tell me not to hurry
I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't always right
I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and my father never lied
Jesus Christ, we better learn how to forage
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive

In the five minutes' worth of lost time that I had
When I was passed out on the supermarket floor
I saw you at the head of the heavenly chorus
And I heard your song ringing all through the store

In the five minutes when my broadcast got pre-empted
I saw you touch down, you were no longer dead
I was happy to see you, I had lots of questions
And I put my hand to the wound in your head

Ah, the blood
All of that blood
All of that warm blood
Flowing freely from you

In the five minutes when I was dead to the world
In a place far away from my friends and my home
I saw you with a smile on your radiant face
Amidst all of the cans and the glass and the chrome

And in those five minutes, my signal was jammed
The frequencies that I received were so pure
That I almost believed that the sight of the hole in your skull
Was a thing that my heart could endure

Ah, the blood
All of that blood
All of that warm blood
Flowing freely from you

this is a song with the same four chords
I use most of the time
when I've got something on my mind
and I don't want to squander the moment
trying to come up with a more complicated riff
to say what i want to say

people were mean to you
but i always thought you were cool
clicking down the concrete hallways
in your spiked heels
back in high school

it's good to be young but let's not kid ourselves
it's better to pass on through those years and come out the other side
with our hearts still beating
having stared down demons
come back breathing

people were mean to you
but i always thought you were cool
clicking down the concrete hallways
in your spiked heels
back in high school

you deserved better than you got
someone's got to say it sometime because it's true
people should have told you you were awesome
instead of taking advantage of you
I hope you love you life like I love mine
I hope the painful memories only flex their power over you a little of the time
we held on to hope of better days coming
and when we did we were right
i hope the people who did you wrong
have trouble sleeping at night

people were mean to you
but i always thought you were cool
clicking down the concrete hallways
in your spiked heels
back in high school

Pale white moon shine down on Colorado
Hide my dirty secrets down here in the shadows
Where the quaking aspens tremble in the snow
Haul me up the hillside, hold me high and let me go

Let me fall down through my own roof like a meteorite
Let the world and all its wonders leave me to my toys tonight
And my ninety-six inch television screen
Let me die, let me die
Surrounded by machines

High winds knocked the power out last night
But I've got my own supply here
All my windows blaze with light
And the light spills through the windows to the empty plain below
Finds nothing but some trees and six fresh feet of snow

And I find a broadcast station that's signed off for the night
And the static floods the speakers in glorious black and white
On my ninety-six inch television screen
Let me die, let me die
Surrounded by machines

If my prayer be not humble make it so
In these last hours if the Spirit waits in check help me let it go
And should my suffering double let me never love You less
Let every knee be bent, and every tongue confess

And I won't get better but someday I'll be free
'Cause I am not this body that imprisons me

I read the magazines somebody brought
Hold them to my failing eyes until my hands get hot
And when the nurse comes in to change my sheets and clothes
The pain begins to travel, dancing as it goes

And I won't get better but someday I'll be free
'Cause I am not this body that imprisons me

If my prayer goes unanswered that's alright
If my path fills with darkness and there is no sign of light
Let me praise You for the good times, let me hold Your banner high
Until the hills are flattened and the rivers all run dry

And I won't get better but someday I'll be free
'Cause I am not this body that imprisons me

They'd hooked you up to a fentanyl drip
to mitigate the pain a little bit
I flew in from Pennsylvania
when I heard the hour was coming fast
And I docked in San Barbara, tried to brace myself

You can't brace yourself when the time comes
You just have to roll with the blast
And I'm an eighteen-wheeler headed down the interstate
And my brakes are going to give
And I won't know till it's too late
Tires screaming when I lose control
Try not to hurt too many people when I roll

Find the harbor freeway and head south
Real tired, head kind of light
I found Telegraph Road
I'd only seen the name on envelopes
Found the parking lot and turned right

I felt all the details carving out space in my head
Tropicanas on the walk way, neon red
Between the pain and the pills trying to hold it at bay
stands a traveler going far away
And I am an airplane tumbling wing over wing
Trying to listen to my instruments
They don't say anything
People screaming when the engines quit
I hope we're all in crash position when we hit

And then came to your bedside and as it turns out I'm not ready
and, as though you were speaking through a thick haze, you said hello to me
We all stood there around you, happy to hear you speak
The last of something bright burning
Still burning beyond the cancer and the chemotherapy
And you were a presence full of light upon this earth
And I am a witness to your life and to it's worth
It's three days later when I get the call
And there's nobody around to break my fall

You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife
You may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
You may ask yourself, "Where is that large automobile?"
You may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful house"
You may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful wife"

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Water dissolving and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water
Remove the water from the bottom of the ocean

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground
And as the days go by
Into the silent water
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

You may ask yourself, "What is that beautiful house?"
You may ask yourself, "Where does that highway lead to?"
You may ask yourself, "Am I right? Am I wrong?"
You may say to yourself, "My God! What have I done?"

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
Water flowing underground
Into the blue again
After the money's gone
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Into the blue again
Into the silent water
Under the rocks and stones
There is water underground
And as the days go by
Into the silent water
Once in a lifetime
Water flowing underground

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, and look where my hand was
Time isn't holding us
Time isn't after us
Time isn't holding us
Time isn't holding us

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Default Jesus wept this is a dark song

Hello one and all
Was it you I used to know?
Can't you hear me call
On this old ham radio?
All I've got to say
I'm alive and feeling fine
Should you come my way
You can share my poison wine

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world, as far as I know

I won't take your bread
I don't need no helping hand
I can't be no savage
I can't be no highwayman
Show me where you are
You and I will spend this day
Driving in my car
Through the ruins of Santa Fe

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world, as far as I know

I'm reading last year's papers
Although I don't know why
Assassins, cons, and rapers
Might as well die

When you come around
No more pain and no regrets
Watch the sun go brown
Smoking cobalt cigarettes
There's no need to hide
Taking things the easy way
If I stay inside
I might live 'til Saturday

No marigolds in the promised land
There's a hole in the ground where they used to grow
Any man left on the Rio Grande
Is the king of the world, king of the world as far as I know

I've never sailed on a sea
I would not challenge a giant
I could not take on the church
Till the 21st century lose

I know a government man
He was as blind as the moon
He saw the sun in the night
He took a top-gun pilot
He made him fly thru a hole
Till he grew real old
And he never came down
He just flew till he burst

Time will crawl till our mouths run dry
Time will crawl till our feet grow small
Time will crawl till our tails fall off
Time will crawl till the 21st century lose

I saw a black black stream
Full of white eyed fish
And a drowning man
With no eyes at all
I felt a warm warm breeze
That melted metal and steel
I got a bad migraine
That lasted three long years
And the pills that I took
Made my fingers disappear

Time will crawl, time will crawl
Time will crawl
Till the 21st century lose

You were a talented child
You came to live in our town
We never bothered to scream
When your mask went on
We only smelt the gas
As we lay down to sleep

Time will crawl and our heads bowed down
Time will crawl and our eyes fall out
Time will crawl and the streets run red
Time will crawl till the 21st century lose

Time will crawl and our mouths run dry
Time will crawl and our feet grow small
Time will crawl and our tails fall off
Time will crawl till the 21st century lose

Time will crawl and our heads bowed down
Time will crawl and our eyes fall out
Time will crawl and the streets run red
Time will crawl till the 21st century lose

For the crazy child
We'll give every life
For the crackpot notion

Well, they come and pull me from my house
And they drag my body through the streets
And the sun's so hot I think I'll catch fire and burn up
In the summer air so moist and sweet

And the people all come out to cheer
Rocks in the pathway break my skin
And there's honeysuckle on the faint breeze today
With every breath I'm drawing in

I want to cry out
But I don't scream and I don't shout
And I feel so proud to be alive
And I feel so proud when the reckoning arrives

The crowds grow denser by the second
As we near the center of the town
And they dig a trench right in the main square right there
And they pick me up and throw me down

And I start laughing like a child
And I mark their faces one by one
Transfiguration's going to come for me at last
And I will burn hotter than the sun

I waited so long
And now I taste jasmine on my tongue
And I feel so proud to be alive
And I feel so proud when the reckoning arrives

Don't worry, hey, no need for you to hide among the trees
Come into the light and you'll be free
Don't scurry, hey, it's such a lonely life up in the hills
The valley's gonna cure your every ill

Don't worry, hey, I know that you are lost but you'll be found
God willing we are California bound
God willing we are California bound

No, I never will hate you
I just want to show you the one truth
And spread my love all around

Don't worry, don't bring yourself down
Don't let your mind chase you like a hound
Don't worry, don't bring yourself down
We're coming today to save your town

No worries, hey, I know tomorrow brings the golden sun
Where there's wine and olive fruit for everyone
Do hurry, hey, now spread the news from there upon your mound
God willing we are California bound
God willing I won't put you in the ground

No, I never will hate you
I just want to show you the one truth
And spread God's love all around

Don't worry, don't bring yourself down
Don't let your mind chase you like a hound
Don't worry, don't bring yourself down
We're coming today to save your town

Don't worry, don't bring yourself down
We're coming to save your mind and town
Don't worry, don't bring yourself down
We're coming to chase you like a hound

and none of the pieces would talk to you
Wouldn't you want to be who you had been

Once upon a time at the foot of a great mountain,
there was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived,
their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world,
obscured as it was by great clouds.
Here they played out their peaceful lives,
innocent of the litany of excess and violence that was growing in the world below.
To live in harmony with the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough.
Then one day Strangefolk arrived in the town.
They came in camouflage, hidden behind dark glasses, but no one noticed them: they only saw shadows.
You see, without the Truth of the Eyes, the Happyfolk were blind.

Falling out of aeroplanes and hiding out in holes
Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home
Jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head
Now everybody dancing the dance of the dead,
the dance of the dead,
the dance of the dead

In time, Strangefolk found their way into the higher reaches of the mountain,
and it was there that they found the caves of unimaginable Sincerity and Beauty.
By chance, they stumbled upon the Place Where All Good Souls Come to Rest.
The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves above all things,
and soon they began to mine the mountain, its rich seam fueling the chaos of their own world.
Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happyfolk slept restlessly,
their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls.
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain.
Why was it bringing darkness into their lives?
And as the Strangefolk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain,
holes began to appear, bringing with them a cold and bitter wind that chilled the very soul of the monkey.
For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful for they knew that soon the Monkey would stir from its deep sleep.
And then came a sound. Distant first, it grew into castrophany so immense it could be heard far away in space.
There were no screams. There was no time.
The mountain called Monkey had spoken.
There was only fire.
And then, nothing.

O little town in U.S.A, your time has come to see
There's nothing you believe you want
But where were you when it all came down on me?
Did you call me now?

Default This song reminds me of a choice I made in my past

What's coming through is alive
What's holding up is a mirror
What's singing songs is a snake, and he's
Looking to turn my piss to wine
They're both totally void of hate, and
Killing me just the same, the

Snake behind me hisses
What my damage could have been
My blood before me begs me
Open up my heart again

And I feel this coming over like a storm again, now
Considerately

Venomous voice, tempts me
Drains me, bleeds me
Leaves me cracked and empty
Drags me down like some sweet gravity

The snake behind me hisses
What my damage could have been
My blood before me begs me
Open up my heart again

And I feel this coming over like a storm again, now
And I feel this coming over like a storm again, now

I am too connected to you
To slip away, to fade away
Days away, I still feel you
Touching me, changing me
And considerately killing me
Considerately killing me
Considerately killing me
Considerately killing me

Without the skin, here
Beneath the storm
Under these tears, now
The walls came down

And as the snake is drowned
And as I look in his eyes
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of the times
I could have cried then
I should have cried then

And as the walls come down
And as I look in your eyes
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of the times
I have died, and will die
It's all right, I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind

I am too connected to you
Slip away, fade away
Days away, I still feel you
Touching me, changing me

And considerately killing me
Considerately killing me

The clouds explode and then the desert blooms
Someone will need to mop this floor for me
When I emerge I find my car
Like a cathedral in a dream of the future

Drive 'til the rain stops
Keep driving

Pull over and blast off when I get the chance
Clear as an insect's wings in sunlight
Flip on the high stakes radio
Try to sing the words right

Drive 'til the rain stops
Keep driving

I had his arms tied up behind him
We were together all day
Maybe make CuliacŠn by sunset
Try to anyway

High as the clouds now
Flying
Drive 'til the rain stops
Keep driving

You let me violate you (say what?)
You let me desecrate you (ooh-ooh-ooh)
You let me penetrate you (say what?)
You let me complicate you (ooh-ooh-ooh)

(Help me) I broke apart my insides
(Help me) I've got no soul to sell
(Help me) The only thing that works for me
Help me get away from myself

I wanna funk you like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna boogie like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to God

You can have my isolation
You can have my hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith
You can have my everything (ooh-ooh-ooh)

(Help me) You tear down my reason (say what?)
(Help me) Some sex I can smell (ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Help me) You make it perfect (say what?)
Help me think of somebody else

I wanna -hng- like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna get down like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to God

You let me violate you
You let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you
You let me complicate you
You let me violate you
You let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you
You let me complicate you

My true love drowned in a dirty old pan of oil
That did run from the block of a Falcon sedan, 1969
The paper said '75
There were no survivors
None found alive

Trees break the sidewalk
And the sidewalk skins my knee
There's glass in my thermos and blood on my jeans
Nickels and dimes on the 4th of July
Roll off in a crooked line
To the chain-link lots where the red-tails dive
Oh how I'd forgot what it's like

Hey when she sings, when she sings, when she sings like she runs
Moves like she runs
Hey when she moves, when she moves, when she moves like she runs
Moves like she runs
Hey there there's such tender wolves 'round town tonight
Round the town tonight
Hey there there's such tender wolves 'round town tonight
Round the town tonight

Hey pretty baby get high with me
We can go to my sister's if you say we'll watch the baby
The look on your face yanks my neck on the chain
And I would do anything (I would do anything)
To see you again
So I've fallen behind

Hey when she sings, when she sings, when she sings like she runs
Moves like she runs
Hey when she moves, when she moves, when she moves like she runs
Moves like she runs
Hey there there's such tender wolves 'round town tonight
Round the town tonight
Hey there there's such tender wolves 'round town tonight
Round the town tonight

Go on, go on and scream and cry
You're miles from where anyone will find you
This is nothing new, no television crew
They don't even put on the siren
My nightgown sweeps the pavement
Please don't let him die

We should get back on the road like Simon and Garfunkel
Let's get married
You are the shelter that I need above me
Who am I trying to fool?
Honey I got your ringtone on my blackberry

Default Editor's note: this song was written before the New 52

Nanananana, Batman's got an attitude
Everybody takes him seriously
And Superman never made any money
But try to tell that to DC
All the other members of the Justice League
Say I got useless superpowers and make fun of me
But I know there will come a day
When they're gonna stare in slack-jawed wonder as they hear me say

I am Aquaman, and nobody better mess with me
I may be nothing to you, but I am a king beneath the sea
Let's see you get by underwater as well as I do on the ground
I am Aquaman, and you better not mess around

There are days I swear I would rather have
The proportionate strength of a praying mantis
Than be the last lost noble prince
Of the undersea kingdom of Atlantis

Batman's got the Batmobile, Diana's got her Invisible Jet
And it seems like everybody else can fly, even Samurai
But a stupid seahorse is all I get
Green Arrow's sharp, but I couldn't be any duller
My orange costume's uglier than any other color
I'm not as tough as Batman or as cute as Gleek
I'm a little taller than the Atom but smaller than Apache Chief

I am Aquaman, and nobody better mess with me
I may be nothing to you, but I am a king beneath the sea
Let's see you get by underwater as well as I do on the ground
I am Aquaman, and you better not mess around

Clark Kent wouldn't be the same if he didn't have his Lois Lane
Green Arrow's got his Black Canary
Even millionaire Bruce Wayne has that thing on the side
With his ward Dick Grayson
But there's just one girl that I would marry

Wonder Woman, all the world is waiting for you
And the magic that you do
In your satin tights
Fighting for our rights
And the Red, White, and Blue

Batman made the movie deal
Though you know he doesn't need the cash
And all the second-rate superheroes get TV shows
Even the pre-Crisis Flash
But not me, I guess that I don't rate
My comic book's been canceled more than Dr. Fate
I know that I'm no Brainiac but I'm no fool
I know not even Peter David can make me cool

I am Aquaman, and nobody better mess with me
I may be nothing to you, but I am a king beneath the sea
Let's see you get by underwater half as well as I do on the ground
I am Aquaman

When Iím aching for their respect, I wonít abandon anything.
When Iím shaken awake by regrets, Iíll try to just get back to sleep.

Perfect always takes so long because it donít exist.

Next time I see you Iíll find better words than Iím sorry.

Perfect always takes so long because it donít exist.

Definitely feeling Randy at the moment.


Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think I'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

When youíre a ghost, when you're a ghost
theyíll sit around and talk about how they liked you the most.
When youíre a dream, when you're a dream
Iíll wake up to warm sun-rays that make me want to scream.

I wanna let you know while youíre alive
because everybody loves you when you die,

When love is dead, when love is dead
weíll remember gentle nudges keeping us in bed
or laughing at funerals, queasy at carnivals,
listening to heartbeats slowing down as we keep growing old, yeah.

I gotta let you know while youíre alive
cause Iíll be a disaster when you die

Itís not like the love that they showed us on TV.
Itís a home that can burn. Itís a limb to freeze.

Itís worry.

Love is worry.

There's a fear, can't be seen, it surrounds me
As afraid of the dark as the light
There was a time long ago these were safe streets
Now I'm the only one that keeps me alive
Keep me alive

You've been fed what they wanted to feed you
You've been bled of the will to survive
Now you stand just as long as they need you
But you're the only one that keeps you alive
Keep you alive

But I know a hero will come
And the night, the night will be torn apart
And I know we won't fight alone
And the spark that we carry will turn the dark into
A flame, a fire, a light

There must be an end to the darkness

When the voice from the shadows calls you
When the wind whips past your ears
Will you stand when the weight is upon you
Or will you go to your knees in fear?

There's a chance, though I know it's a long shot
And the city is out of time
All for naught if your heart stops beating
Cause you're the only one that keeps it alive
God, keep it alive!

But I know a hero will come
Someone's got to
Bring back the light

And I know we won't fight alone
A darkness will block out the sun if we can't
Find a way to hold back the night

We can hold out past the endless dark
All a fire needs is a single spark

Default True Love Leaves No Traces by Leonard Cohen

As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill
So my body leaves no scar
On you and never will
Through windows in the dark
The children come, the children go
Like arrows with no targets
Like shackles made of snow

True love leaves no traces
If you and I are one
It's lost in our embraces
Like stars against the sun

As a falling leaf may rest
A moment on the air
So your head upon my breast
So my hand upon your hair

And many nights endure
Without a moon or star
So we will endure
When one is gone and far

True love leaves no traces
If you and I are one
It's lost in our embraces
Like stars against the sun

Once a year, my friend puts on a red suit
And hangs around with me and my wife
Now I can't help but feeling jealous
Each time she climbs on his knee

And she stands beneath the mistletoe screaming
For him to stand beneath the mistletoe screaming
Now I can't help but feeling jealous
Each time she climbs on his knee
Why must she climb on his knee?

I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
She kissed him once and whispered in his ear
I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
I wish he would go
He's breaking up my home

She always had this twisted side to her
But she'd never drag my name around town
But lately she's been humming cheating songs
And I don't like that fat guy around
No, I don't like that fat guy around

I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
She kissed him once and whispered in his ear
I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
I wish he would go
He's breaking up my home

I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
Thrilling (Thrilling)
Christmas (Christmas)
Trembling fear
I saw my baby wearing Santa's beard
I wish he would go
He's breaking up my home

Default "We Begged 2 Explode" - Jeff Rosenstock

Someoneís gonna bleed and dribble trails in the snow,
stretching to the bus from an overstuffed home
we begged to explode.
Laura said to me, ďThis decadeís gonna be fucked.
Friends will disappear after they fall in love
fall in love and get married.
Isnít that shit like crazy?
The workiní, haviní babies and promotions?
The cheatiní, cryiní, leaviní and divorciní?Ē

As weíre bouncing up and down trying to make the floor break,
stop sneering at our joy like itís a careless mistake.
You fuckheads complain because you like to complain,
like I blame rock and roll when itís just the champagne
that keeps me detaching from reality,
just waiting for someone to come and save me.
Wonít somebody fucking please come and save me?
Oh please, hurry up, someone, come and save me
from all these magic moments Iíve forgotten.

On a weary floor that canít support all of us,
in a giddy haze and dancing carpet to dust.
All these magic moments Iíve forgotten.
All these magic moments Iíll forget once the magic is gone.
