Cursive – Bad Sects Lyrics 15 years ago
Saying "You'll never live this down" fifteen times in a row kind of reminded me of going through the beads on a holy rosary.

Islands – Ones Lyrics 15 years ago
From liner note:

head my mouths my eyes
my ears my nose home

wind my limbs are free
like trees let leaves leave
like blue can't move my head
my head my head go home
my legs can't stand anymore

with wings things would appear far
even if they were near
here in my head
close my eyes and see ones
here in my head
close my eyes and see ones
hear in my head some voice said
stand 'cuz you can and that's all you have

you're not in this alone
we all live in awkward little homes
we all live in our
heads our legs our toes our eyes
our throats homes homes homes homes

Islands – If Lyrics 15 years ago
Just gonna retype them all from the liner notes:

well if the clothes make the man
then the moths make the holes
and it shows
yes it shows
by the shape the hole grows

ooohhoh
so if early man really did mate with neanderthal then
modern man
is a mix
of beastial sex
ooh oooh

if you ain't sweet to me
i'll dessert you in a heartbeat
if you don't savour me
i'll salt you make you savoury

if the boy keeps hitting his head
against the dash of the car
will the horsefly leave his ear
or will the blood make it hard?

if you ain't sweet to me...

if sequencing genes
brings them back to breed
will we get along
with them?


if you ain't sweet to me...

when the sky finally falls
if you're holding me
I can die finally knowing
it ends peacefully.

Islands – Volcanoes Lyrics 15 years ago
Corrections, from the liner notes:

a. so at sunrise we blew dawn
by* lunch the storm had gone away
...
While lovers hovered around my* towel

when we noticed something glowing
and* it was growing
things are going to change
a hard rain falls, made of magma

c. we did it our way, misbehaved
...
they've* been waiting for so long
...
and we thought that we should do ourselves in

d. then* we washed our mouths at the riverbed
...
and* it was growing things are going to change
a hard rain falls made of magma
melts Alaska

e. Silver in* snow
Silver in* snow

f. and* it was growing, things are going to change
a hard rain falls, made of magma

Islands – Humans Lyrics 15 years ago
Corrections, from liner notes:

a. The tree it fell on all the people
who* gathered there to watch it topplee

b. should we mobilize*, take them by surprise
or* let them have their way with us?
* young love's beat by old enemies
it* broke my heart to see
* guess we got off to a bad start

c. hungry humans, we've got to eat some of them?*

d. and* the river's ran dry just when it was needed

e. it was* hard to breathe but we couldn't leave
nowhere left to go
almost everybody died
we drank the tears from those who died
and we shrivelled from the sodium
then a map was found with an "X" on it
we followed it there
and what did we find?
an underground design
so we entered and to our surprise...

f. oxygen, rivers and playgrounds*
...
so* we stumbled towards them

g. but* we had to build a civilization
and* let the planet focus on the planet's rotation
...
we tried we tried, we really tried
but no one could do it
we're not really alive
never learned how to survive
we were humans being useless

h. we fade into oblivion with no traces of civilized living
breathing in dirt
we fade into oblivion with no traces of civilized living

Arctic Monkeys – A Certain Romance Lyrics 16 years ago
A chav is, from what I understand, a white person who's trying to be black.

In North America, I guess you could use "wigger" instead.

Elliott Smith – King's Crossing Lyrics 17 years ago
buwhaha:
As far as injecting his ex-wife, it doesn't mean that he is injecting an actual person (i.e. I inject you with a needle) but he's injecting something into his bloodstream that he considered close to him (i.e. heroin).

i.e. "All I want to do now is inject heroin" makes more sense to me.

This song's about a woman who has broken up with her boyfriend and then her girlfriend makes an advance on her when she's at her most vulnerable state. Well, at least Andre's part is.
