Hot Water Music – Seein' Diamonds Lyrics 10 years ago
From the Till the Wheels Fall Off booklet.

I remember seein' diamonds. Whatever happened to them? D'ya smash them all when you flew away? Your jets burned everything, and laid a coat so dark and bitter you'd never believe it's the same little world. But it is the same. All changed and rearranged, but it is the same. Just changed. Rearranged. I remember early morning, in the car by the side of the road, you said you had something to say. I crawled out with my head spinning. I covered my ears too late. Everything felt dead in me. But I am the same. All changed and rearranged, but I am the same. Just changed. Rearranged. Just returning felt like murder, but I could not stay away. I was holding back from getting on. But I am the same. All changed and rearranged, but I am the same. Just changed.

Latterman – My Bedroom Is Like For Artists Lyrics 10 years ago
Uhh...what? I'm pretty sure it's about finding a scene or community you love:
"the next time I get up and try leaving town
Shoot my fucking plane to the ground
I saw new things in the same old town"

And even when it seems fucked or things aren't the way you think they should be, you need to stick around and try to improve it:
"Even though it's warm down here
Don't let it lull us to sleep"

"Streets gentrified like it's no problem..."

Hot Water Music – Blackjaw Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is sadly more apropos than ever. It perfectly describes the feeling of being lower middle class, futilely slaving away for too long for not enough money and being unable to provide your children with a better life than you had. It sucks.

The Gaslight Anthem – The Backseat Lyrics 11 years ago
It might be "try" instead of "tried", but considering the rest of the chorus is in past tense, I went with "tried".


In the backseats of burned out cars in the disenchantment lane
The ideal angels twist and turn and ask forgiveness for future mistakes
But you and I, we've been through this maybe a hundred times before
Always hitching rides with strangers that papa warned us about before

But you know the summer always brought it, that wild and reckless breeze
And in the backseat, we just tried to find some room for our knees
And in the backseat, we just tried to find some room to breathe

And in the wild desert sun, we drove straight on through the night
We rode a fever out of Boston, dreamed of California lights
Come July, we'll ride the ferris wheel, go round and round and round
And If you never let me go, well, I will never let you down

And you know the summer always brought it, all those wild and reckless breezes
And in the backseat, we just tried to find some room for our knees
And in the backseat, we just tried to find some room to breathe
And now in the backseat, we just try to find some room to breathe

And these cowboys all go crazy in the heat
Chasing the lights in all the girls along the Santa Ana streets they're just dying to meet
It meant nothing to me

You know the summer always brought it, that wild and reckless breeze
And in the backseat we just tried to find some room for our knees

AJJ – Rejoice Lyrics 11 years ago
Rejoice, rejoice, God's ears are stitches
Rejoice, his eyes are big Xs
Oh, rejoice, his arms are burning witches
Oh, rejoice, his hands perform hexes
Rejoice despite the fact this world will hurt you
And rejoice despite the fact this world will kill you
And rejoice despite the fact this world will tear you to shreds
Rejoice because you're trying your best

And rejoice, the bed you sleep in is burning
Oh, rejoice, the sky's fucking falling
Oh, rejoice, the world we know is turning
Oh, rejoice, your father's been calling
Rejoice although this world will devastate you
And rejoice although this world will penetrate you
And rejoice although you will not survive
Rejoice, you'll never make it out alive

And rejoice, your hair it smells like burning hair
Oh, rejoice, your nails all got chewed off
Oh, rejoice, and holy fuck you're bleeding there
Oh, rejoice, you burned your whole beard off
Rejoice despite the fact this world will hurt you
And rejoice despite the fact this world will kill you
And rejoice despite the fact this world will tear you to shreds
Rejoice because you're trying your best

Chuck Ragan – Heart of Stone Lyrics 12 years ago
From the booklet from Feast Or Famine:

How do you get right? With one eye closed so tight, slipping backwards, falling prey to plastic eyes. So hard to walk straight, for the style has made you sway in every cabaret, on every strip that bears your name. Open your eyes; you are standing empty and cold. Open your mouth if your voice can never be sold. Burn the bridge down. Take the long road into town, where al the bastards and all the witches mark their ground. Open your eyes; you are standing empty and cold. Open your mouth if your voice can never be sold. I only know that hearts made of stone will rarely sail far, and may never reach home. And so is the cost to live dead and lost, searching the stars to find which is ours. Well in the corners, where all the lost souls have been found, there lies a purpose, before yourself dead in the ground.

Chuck Ragan – For Broken Ears Lyrics 12 years ago
From the booklet from Feast Or Famine:

Where are the ones that carry the guns to the far away lands with the blackened suns? From the smoke and narrow minds, the half-truth trails and the holy lies, of an empty heart, an overflowing mouth, a plastic smile and a coward's frown. Repercussions come around when the named free burns to the ground somehow. Where are the deaf and where are the dumb, from the side of the tracks where no reason comes from? And the table's never bare, the water runs and mama's always there. So who separates the world from the start? Where such words would come and such thoughts would cause a shot heard round the world, or just as sad, never heard at all. So down, down, down, like a ball of flames, to the rotten core filling up with names of hypocrites, what a massive list, don't exclude yourself from it. Don't compromise administration lies, carried out and covered up with time. Carried out and turned around to shine, or high on a pedestal of broken lives. Compassion speaks loud for itself, falls on broken ears and off the value shelf, into the dirt left to the wind, coming up strong ready to begin. To obliterate the world from the start, where such ideas come and such ideas cause a spark that'll set a blaze, and leave the embers red until the end of days. So down, down, down, like a ball of flames, to the rotten core filling up with names of hypocrites, what a massive list, don't exclude yourself from it. Don't compromise administration lies, carried out and covered up with time. Carried out and turned around to shien, or high on a pedestal of broken lives. Where are the ones that carry their guns to the far away lands with the blackened suns? From the smoke and narrow minds, the half-truth trails and the holy lies of an empty heart and an overflowing mouth, a plastic smile and a coward's frown. Repercussions come around when the word named free burns to the ground somehow.

Chuck Ragan – Do What You Do Lyrics 12 years ago
From the booklet from Feast Or Famine:

Come dance with me or I'll explode. The reckless side is now shining through you. So shake your hair and do what you do, and I'll break my legs to keep up with you. Cause I don't like being alone, unless I feel alone. Dancing with you is everything, so I know that it can't be wrong. Steady after the wine, time after time after time, we watch the light shine through us like ghosts, as the candles burn as low as they go. Spinning until we hit the floor, the pain has never felt so good. We light ourselves up to crumble then, just to never let it end. Cause I don't like being alone, unless I feel alone. Dancing with you is everything, so I know that it can't be wrong. Steady after the wine, time after time after time, we watch the light shine through us like ghosts, as the candles burn as low as they go. So hold me close to keep me close, cause I don't like being alone unless I feel alone.

Chuck Ragan – Symmetry Lyrics 12 years ago
From the booklet from Feast And Famine:

How would we have know we would wash away? As two solemn searching souls, together to the sea. Amongst the creatures, underneath the deepening, holding to the flame burning you and me. We sacrifice the talk and praise the eyes in all wonder and amazement, and notice every star floating in the arms of symmetry so ageless. How would we have know we would wash away? As two solemn searching souls, together to the sea. Amongst the mountains, underneath the deepening, rising to the sun but in the shadows all along. We sacrifice the talk and live for holding on to everything sacred. Surrounded by the miles of broken oars and trials covering the surface. We sacrifice the talk and cherish what we're taught, come what may surround us. And drift with clutching arms in a world so ever dark, wondering what betook us. How would we have know we would wash away? As two solemn searching souls, together to the sea. Amongst the creatures, underneath the deepening. Holding to that flame burning you and me. We sacrifice the talk and praise the eyes in all wonder and amazement, and notice every star floating in the arms of symmetry so ageless.

Chuck Ragan – It's What You Will Lyrics 12 years ago
From the booklet from Feast And Famine:

We are the common, not filth and disgrace, you would know better if you saw it that way. Lock up your scapegoats and shut out the light, lock up your secrets and give your skeletons the keys. We will never be what you want the world to be, you'll never have a glimpse of what true love can see. Mind the world that's dying, it isn't yours to kill. Look around, it's what you will. Yeah we are the blue, so strong and confused, tracking down dusty roads finding what we lose. Dancing with the casualty spirits of the wars, shedding a few tears for the beggars and the whores. We will never be what you want the world to be, you'll never have a glimpse of what true love can see. Mind the world that's dying, it isn't yours to kill. Look around, it's what you will. Maybe there's a mutiny rising with the sun, to come shed some light on the damage that was done. Maybe it's an army or a sleeping four year old, resting from a hard day of "army" in the cold. We will never be what you want the world to be, you'll never have a glimpse of what true love can see. Mind the world that's dying, it isn't yours to kill. Look around, it's what you will. Yeah mind the world that's dying, it isn't yours to kill. Look around, it's what you will.

Chuck Ragan – The Boat Lyrics 12 years ago
From the booklet from Feast And Famine:

Some days we're ripped and torn away from the shores and tossed to a watery grave. Set adrift in the depths of the drink and in the hand of the gods we curse. We call for help when no one's around, shot down bleeding, thoughts never make a sound. Set adrift in the depths of the dark, in the heard of the sea where we wish. I feel it in my bones when the storm is close, then I wait for the rain and the wind to blow. As dark colors fill the sky, I'm drenched and feeling so alive, eyes closed tight and my ears open for the boat. we all carry the tune we love, think of home when the waves and the going get tough. Hold our breath and go down with the wish of just one last kiss to rest. I feel it in my bones when the storm is close, then I wait for the rain and the wind to blow. As dark colors fill the sky, I'm drenched and feeling so alive, eyes closed tight and my ears open for the boat.

Against Me! – Problems Lyrics 12 years ago
Hahahaahaha these are so wrong.


An inventory has been taken of every belonging
An estimated value sold in event of emergencies
The only backup plan in case it doesn't work out
While losing semblance of coherence to a former self
You know I am becoming the choices we're making

Problems, problems with everything
Problems, problems with everything
Oh God, no

Sometimes it's like conversations are a waking dream A third party perspective
An audience to the self, you can almost hear the sound traveling
A constant feeling of anticipation
All of the sudden you know whats gonna happen
These are the paranoias that have built your world
They neither eat nor sleep they have no names, you know

Here in the worst I will become the best of them all
No more problems
Problems with anything
No more problems
Problems with anything

The Lawrence Arms – Are You There, Margaret? It's Me, God. Lyrics 13 years ago
They told me where to go
And I always followed
They told me what to do
I swallowed every drop down
They told me bedtime stories
Of how I’d rise above
They told me they were true

I sat and thought about her
On the train ride out
I felt my stomach turned
Like it’s done for years now
I thought about her hips and thighs
With the red in my eyes
I felt my body burn
Burn, yeah

Aeroplane, aeroplane
Don’t leave without me
'Cos I'm out here all by myself
And I ain't got no place to sleep
Aeroplane, aeroplane
Don’t leave without me
'Cos I'm out here all by myself and I
I ain't got no place to sleep

And you told me that you loved me
I swallowed every drop down
And you told me how it felt
Like being gagged and bound
And you told me you were leaving
On the last train out
And you told me to go to hell

Well, never tell, you’re beautiful [???]
I’ve been there
Believe me when I say I’m not afraid
Of destruction, sorrow, fear and regret
I've heard the devil call me by my name
I've heard the devil call me by my name

Hey, yeah

Aeroplane, aeroplane
Don’t leave without me
‘Cos I'm out here all by myself
And I got no place to sleep
Aeroplane, aeroplane
Don’t leave without me
‘Cos I'm out here all by mself and I

Aeroplane, aeroplane
Don’t leave without me
‘Cos I'm out here all by myself
And I got no place to sleep
Aeroplane, aeroplane
Don’t leave without me
'Cos I'm out here
All by myself and I
Yeah, I'm out here all by myself and I
Got no place to sleep
No, no, no, no
Got no place to sleep
No, no, no, no

Believe me when I say I'm not afraid
I've heard the devil call me by my name
Believe me when I say I'm not afraid
I've heard the devil call me by my name


Not too sure about some of it, but yeah.

The Lawrence Arms – Like a Record Player Lyrics 13 years ago
To add to the corrections...

I’ve been traveling with bottles
Workin’ close with cans
Sitting up for hours with my best friends in a van
And they say that there’s a limit
But I don’t know what they mean
‘Cos I don’t think that they'll ever be lookin’ after me
It’s the only game that I know how to play

Now I don’t need a doctor
Cause anyone can see
That I’ve had all of these shots
But lord, I’m still as sick as I can be
I think I need to rest my head
So baby, come with me
Lay down here beside me
Keep me warm while I sleep
There’s trouble on the way
You'd best believe

The Lawrence Arms – Jumping the Shark Lyrics 13 years ago
Losing sight of a past time
The years fly right by with the drinks.
It’s morning in this small apartment
And I just threw up in the sink.
The coffee's not settling anything
And I’m as tired as I’ve ever been.
I’d like to go back to Chicago
But I’m not looking back there again.

I fought with all of my teachers
I fought with all of my friends.
I fought with the vices and sweating and shakes
I’m not going back there again.
No, I’m not going back there again.

Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.
Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.
I don’t want to hear about old days
What are we doing today?
Fake memories, they don't impress me.
The old times were never that great.

We've got the whole city before us
Tonight, tonight I’m walkin’ away.
And I wanna bury the past.
With bottles and dancing
With whiskey and love.
Let’s drink to the death of regret.

Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.
Tonight, tonight, I’m walkin’ away.



I'm pretty sure. But yeah, great song. Love it to death.
