I've based my life on being blind
The scenery is too much to confine
Myself inside this circular room
Searching for a corner to rest my head
I guess we're overrated
The love we had is fading
Cupid should work on markmanship
Because his arrows must've missed

Why do I trust in you?
When I've observed that
The truth lies elsewhere
Far from your tongue
Bleeding gums
You've said too much
Learn from your mistakes
And try again tomorrow.

Sever my hands from your neck
That's the only way you'll breathe again

I've lost that gleam in my eye
And as I look into yours,
It seems your pupils have shrunk,
Dulled all the endings in your nerves.
Break your body is half
and use your skin as blankets
To keep me warm after
All we've been through.

Tell me where to go, now , that we have burned our bridges,
The only sanction we have to let us interact.
Make new friends, but keep the old?
One was silver, the other is cold

Liquify my passion
And drain me into this river
My words have become cement
(they've become cement)
On the surface of the ocean
(scratch the surface)

Make new friends, but keep the old?
One was silver, the other is gold

We'll stay up late, and watch silent movies
Inside my heart...
(I believe in you and I)
We'll stay up late, and watch silent movies
(I still believe, can I believe?)
Inside my heart

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
