The Mountain Goats – Rain in Soho Lyrics 3 years ago
The Batcave was an OG Goth club in London's West End before Goth was a thing. I imagine it was a place where like minded people could meet and revel in their sorrow and darkness. Loners and Lone Wolves finding a pack. This song seems, to me at least, to speak to the romanticism of a lost place and moment in time where the narrator found community where previously non had existed.

The Cardigans – Feathers and Down Lyrics 9 years ago
So you trying to do what they did
Your friends that turned to liquid
And got lost in the sea
And now you’re drowning me

With your talk of four-leaf clovers
You turn to rocks and omen
To beat the ambient harm
But it’s bruising your karma

Oh, I wish my arms were wider
I wish that I could hide you
So you can rest and repair
Without the blanket of sorrow

The thick and the grey
Your blanket of woe
So heavy and stained
And it only weighs you down, oh

So you thought that getting sober
Would mean your life was over
I don’t think it’s that bad
I don’t think it’s that sad

Just you sleep a little baby
Leave the world alone and later
If you wake up alive
That old blanket of sorrow

Could be feathers and down
Your blanket of woe
Would leave you alone
And I can love you 'til you drown

Come to me let’s drown, oh
Come baby let’s drown
In feathers and down

John Vanderslice – CRC 7173, Affectionately Lyrics 9 years ago
We all
Have to fall
But why so fast
And why so far

It's so much better now
It's so much better now
It's so much better now
It's so much better now

And we all
Have to fall
Why so fast
And why so far

What you said is a God-damned lie
There's plenty left to lose
It stared me down and
Left me
Shaking in my shoes

It's so much better now
It's so much better now
Stamped on the front and the back

A Camp – Elephant Lyrics 10 years ago
I caught you smiling
With pointed teeth
What once was beautiful
Has turned bitter and cheap

So now there's nothing I can do for you
But leave your roses out to die

I misbehaved
I'm in your way
I'm in your way
Like an elephant

Gentle smiling
With pointed teeth
Now there's a war between
My high hopes and me

So this is how you put an end to things
By cutting throats with a smile

I misbehaved
I'm in your way
In your way
Like an elephant

But in the corner of my mind
A little angel's saying
Don't waste your love
You love too much

Freedy Johnston – Wichita Lineman Lyrics 10 years ago
I was just listening to the Freedy Johnston version of this song, and he varies from the original lyrics. The corrected lyrics are as follows.

Thank you.


I am a lineman for the county
And I ride the main road
Searching in the sun
For another overload

I hear you singing in the wires
I hear you through the whine
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

I know I need a short vacation
But it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south
Will never take the strain

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita lineman
Is still on the line
