"Room 13" as written by and Medea Rosalinda Lack Gregory Regis Ginn....
KEEP ME ALIVE
ONLY YOU CAN DO IT
IF NOT YOU'LL DIE TOO
AND I'LL SEE TO IT

IT'S HARD TO SURVIVE
DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO IT

KEEP ME ALIVE
I CAN'T ACCEPT MY FATE
I NEED HELP
BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE

IT'S HARD TO SURVIVE, DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO IT
I NEED TO BELONG, I NEED TO HANG ON
I NEED, NEED

KEEP ME ALIVE FEELINGS I MUST OBEY
CAN'T TURN MY EYES FROM THE PAST
THIS CRISIS IS THE LAST

KEEP ME ALIVE
I RELY ON YOUR JUDGEMENT
I'VE GOT NONE LEFT OF MY OWN
DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING

IT'S HARD TO SURVIVE, DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO IT
I NEED TO BELONG, I NEED TO HANG ON
I NEED, NEED

KEEP ME ALIVE
ONLY YOU CAN DO IT
KEEP ME ALIVE
ONLY YOU CAN DO IT

IT'S HARD TO SURVIVE, DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO IT

KEEP ME ALIVE
KEEP ME ALIVE
KEEP ME ALIVE
KEEP ME ALIVE

IT'S HARD TO SURVIVE, DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO IT
I NEED TO BELONG, I NEED TO HANG ON
I NEED, NEED

    General CommentBest part about this song, is that while he's begging for this person to comfort him, begging for an emotional connection, he's also so fucked up at this point that he's threatening their life if they don't comply. Now what kind of love is that? The love of a very screwed up, battered soul, which is what Black Flag communicated better than anyone in the history of music---and usually not even by lyrics (one note from Greg Ginn's guitar communicates more despair than a thousand verses ever could).

    General CommentI agree with zacharyy - No one tops Black Flag in the anger department. The guy is nuts, wants someone to love him but also wouldn't hesitate hurting them. Ginn's guitar playing is more feeling than musical. Just listen to his playing, his picking attack is more that of a trumpet player and a drummer than a guitarist. That's what I love about it. It's pure aggression. He did something new with the guitar, which is rad.
