Elvis Costello – Watching the Detectives




You Snatch a tune and match a cigarette,
She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet.
I don’t know how much more of this I can take.
She’s filing her nails as they’re dragging the lake.

---



Watch Like Watching the detectives.
Don’t get cute!”
It’s just like watching the detectives.
I get so angry when the teardrops start,
But he can’t be wounded ‘cause he’s got no heart.
Watching the detectives.
It’s just like watching the detectives.

AVGN theme. well the part that gets used anyway.

He's gonna take you back to the past,
To play those shitty games that suck ***.
He'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in his ear.
He'd rather eat the rotten ******* of a road-kill skunk & down it with beer.


He's the angriest gamer you've ever heard.
He's the Angry Nintendo Nerd.
He's the Angry Atari Sega Nerd.
He's the Angry Video Game Nerd.

There's a lot of great lines in Shook Ones Part II by Mobb Deep. This is IMO the greatest rap song ever written.

Quote

beware of my crime family who got nuff shots to share
for,
all of those who wanna profile and pose
rock you in your face,
stab your brain wit' your nosebone
you all alone in these streets, cousin
every man for theirself in this land we be gunnin'
keep them shook crews runnin' like they supposed to

Quote

your crew is featherweight
my gunshots'll make you levitate
I'm only nineteen but my mind is old
and when the things get for real
my warm heart turns cold
another n***a deceased, another story gets told
it ain't nothin' really

Quote

meanwhile back in Queens the realness is foundation
if I die I couldn't choose a better location
when the slugs penetrate you feel a burning sensation
getting closer to God in a tight situation

       >>>>>> Listen

K-Rino - Valley of Decision.

[K-Rino]
I'm in a spiritual prison, but on this day I've arisen
To the vision of an internal god and Satan collision
The fight to win me took place within me
And whoever I submit it to would ultimately choose where they would send me
I stood motionless, approaching this comatose-ness with openness
Could only hope and wish for sanity when I awoke from this
I'm coping with the possibility of making the wrong choice
No reason to rejoice, I heard Satan speak in my own voice


[Satan]

You love me don't you?
Think of everything I meant to you
Since day one remember all the happiness I sent to you
The days that I provided ways for cash to pay the rent for you
The things you meant to do that he prevented you, I lent to you

[God]
He tempted you and you let worldly elements effect you
The things that I prevented you were done so to protect you
I expect you to make mistakes, but call I won't neglect you
Follow me and I'll eject secular ways and resurrect you

[K-Rino]
You know I'll follow you god, your power I done seen it

[Satan]
Yeah I hear your mouth but profess I don't really think you mean it
You been claiming religion but you seem to do what I say
If he got more to offer, then why you always leaning my way?

[K-Rino]
That's a good question, see god it's like you there but still I'm one deep
Sometimes the abstract is harder to take to than the concrete
So talk and faith is one thing, I want to feel you like a sun beam

[God]
But the key part of faith son is believing in the unseen

[K-Rino]
What do you mean?

[God]
Let me explain it K-Rino
Do you believe you have a brain?
(Yeah)
Have you ever seen it?
(No, oh)
Now do you understand?

[K-Rino]
Yeah it just hit me
Just because I can't see you that don't mean that you ain't wit' me

[Satan]
Let me jump between this nonsense, y'all analyze too much
What feels better things you visualize a thing that you can touch
You already know the business if you step into my zone
I'll award you all the lustful things he'll never condone

[K-Rino]
haha, this reminds me of a dolomite movie
If I make a deal with you then in the end you goin' do me
I'm caught between two forces trying to actively peruse me
Confused on who's truly loaded with the tools to rule me

[Satan]
I already rule you won't you just admit it (never!)
Think of all the things I gave you, all the fun we had together
(yeah we did have some good times)
So lets end this discussion

[God]
Wait a minute K think of all the pain a repercussions
All the problems that you caused people and when trouble got too hard
Who saved your life and fixed the situation?
(it was you lord!)
That's right son, so come with me I'll show you real wealth
You bowing down to an entity that's lower than yourself

[K-Rino]
Yeah that makes sense I'll follow you

[Satan disguised as God]
You made the right choice, you won't regret this

[K-Rino]
Hold up god, what's the matter with your voice?

[Satan disguised as God]
Oh, I'm just a little hoarse son from all this debating

[K-Rino]
God, hoarse, wait a minute I been tricked man this is Satan
You deceived me and brought me here to make me follow wrong

[Satan]
Yeah the voice you thought was God was really my voice all along

[K-Rino]
Well if that's the case I didn't know so God will still bless me
That means that God was speaking in your voice to try to test me
I guess at least I'm hoping that's the way it gotta be

[Satan]
Not necessarily actually K both voices were me (laughs)

[K-Rino]
Awww man I done accidentally condemned my own soul
Gave it up to evil knowing that ain't even how I roll
Yeah I sin, but I love God and that's who I submit to

[God]
I know son and that's why I came down here to get you


[K-Rino]

Hold up now, who is this? See now I'm getting confused

[God]
I'm the real God this was a test son you made it through

[K-Rino]
How I know this ain't another trick and what you say is true?


[God]
Once you claimed me Satan lost all power over you
But he was never here in this case I made it this hard

[K-Rino]
So you was God posing as Satan
Doing an imitation of God acting like Satan?
That's too deep, but I'm glad it's all over

[God]
It's never over cause the real devil is always on your shoulder
So remember every single trial that I put you through
If you was in the valley of decision, what would you do???

I had to add the whole song!!!!!!!


here are a few more songs from K-Rino that will not disappoint :tu:!  There's way to many to put all my favs.

Too short-Gettin it


Now let me holler at ya partner, spit this game
in you ear for a minute, quit complaining
Bout how you can't spend it cause you ain't got it
You got what it takes but not enough to get started
I hope you get the message, no it's not a test it's
Just me ridin legit, they can't arrest me or bust me
I'm still hungry, I want some more stuff
Get fat and watch my whole crew blow up
So get yours, and buy my new album
Peep the game and don't be like Calvin
Get everything you want, get real, get you mail
Get your girl to make bail and get your *** out of jail
You should be gettin it, everything you want
Everything you dreamed of, never have to front
you shoulf be gettin it, gettin money
I'm talking bout you black, don't laugh it aint funny
You should get a good lawyer, like Johnny Cochran
Swear to tell the truth, hell no I didn't pop him
Get your kids in school, so they can get an education
Get a degree, and take a vacation

We come out at night-Avenged Sevenfold

Black and gray clouds willow in the balance as the sun falls.
Rain plays a heart warming tune, on the pavement.
Emotions stir.
A feeling of warmness, compassion, fullness, I feel at home.
Disguised by surroundings.
As the torn and left in the gutter seek vengeance on their mistreated lives.
As the torn and left in the cold, seek vengeance on mistreated lives.
A silhouette stands still.
A cactus on a warm summer night.
But the rain falls cold and the moon shines bright.
Black as night.
Cold as ice.
Warm as home.
Ready to live.
Stars they shoot.
In a clear.
Across the sky.
As does my time.
Waiting, wanting, feeling, emotion.
Crying, breaking, loving, nothing.
Clouds swallow the moon, and I’m alone,
thinking good times, and why'd they go?
Falling down, breaking down parts of me.
****. I need this place to get away from you.
Clouds swallow the moon, and I’m alone,
thinking good times, and why'd they go?
Clouds swallow the moon, and I’m alone,
thinking good times, and why'd they go?

Artist: Bad Religion

Song: Don't Sell Me Short


we don't need any more mountains
because the trail builders
failed to give us passage there
so we can't reach the sky
we don't need any more failure
there is human tragedy
that's written everywhere
and we are all too young to die
like a mystery that's here to stay
some people never go away
cuz they've got something to say

   don't sell me short!
you've been wrong too long
don't brush me off
just because I don't belong
like it or not I'm all you've got,
dispose when I'm shot
just don't sell me short,


I might not be who you thought
we don't need any more fables
because the writers have passed
and left us lessonless
and we must find our own way
we don't need any more privilege
there is vivid desperation
that is powerless
that no surplus can repay
like the fix of rapture in a trance
oh, fates are sealed by circumstance
so you've got to take a chance

    don't sell me short!
you've been wrong too long
don't brush me off
just because I don't belong
pass me on by, ignore my cry,
forget me when I die
just don't sell me short,
not while I'm still alive  

everybody's talking about heaven on earth,
I'm still trying to figure out
just what I'm worth
I'm full of emotion
and stuff you can't contain
and you just want to
flush me down the drain
but you can't make me go away






"The angel of self-deceit is camped in the souls of the "Righteous"--The eternal flame of power through joy dwellith within the flesh of the Satanist!"--Anton Szandor LaVey

"Tis' true my form is something odd but blaming me is blaming God. Could I create myself anew, I would not fail in pleasing you. If I could reach from pole to pole or grasp the ocean with a span, I would be measured by the soul. The mind's the standard of the man."--Isaac Watts

Sugarcult- Stuck in America

Today, I changed
It's too late
Cause everyone stayed the same
I'm gone, so long
Break out, cause I'm better off on my own

Today, I changed
It's too late
Cause every town feels the same
I'm different and you're distant
Add it up and it makes no difference

Everybody's talking about blowing up the neighborhood
Everybody's gonna break it up today
Everybody's talking about blowing up the neighborhood
Runnin just to get away

Stuck in America
Stuck in America
I'm lost in America
Stuck in America

Today, I changed
New town with the same old face
One way to shake this place that I can't escape

Everybody's talking about blowing up the neighborhood
Everybody's gonna watch it burn today
Everybody's talking about waking up the neighborhood
I'm still trying to escape

Stuck in America
Stuck in America
I'm lost in America
Stuck in America

Today, today

Everybody's talking about blowing up the neighborhood
Everybody's gonna break it up today
Everybody's talking about blowing up the neighborhood
All I ever wanted was to get away

Stuck in America
Stuck in America
Stuck in America
Stuck in America

Get away, get away, get away, get away
(all that **** that you put me through)

Today, I changed

The Byrds - Eight Miles High

Eight miles high and when you touch down
You'll find that it's stranger than known
Signs in the street that say where you're going
Are somewhere just being their own

Nowhere is there warmth to be found
Among those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town known for its sound
In places small faces unbound

Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living some standing alone

Blue Stahli - Scrape

Bring it down to the wire,
Parasite my sire,
Set them all on fire,
Bring it down to the wire,
And scrape.

Bring it down to the wire,
Parasite my sire,
Set them all on fire,
And scrrraaaappppeeee!
Scrrraaaappppeeee!

They force it in and you swallow,
Like words and cheap advice,
I�ll burn it all just to light your eyes.

Skin-tight rewards and vendetta (Vendetta),
Round zero in a desperate light,
I love the violence inside your mind.

Bring it down to the wire,
Parasite my sire,
Set them all on fire,
And scrrraaaappppeeee!
Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Want you)
Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Need you)
Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Break you)
Bring it down to the wire!

There is an art to infliction,
Head-spill and homicide,
I�ll burn it all just to light your eyes.

All that you dream of, they�re ruined,
My sweet little libertine,
We�ll mix it all with gasoline.

Bring it down to the wire,
Parasite my sire,
Set them all on fire,
And scrrraaaappppeeee!
Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Want you)
Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Need you)
Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Break you)
Bring it down to the wire!

Witches got some vicious candy kisses for apocalypse,
Watch it closer as it�s slipping away,
Naked trigger finger, make linger just below the hips,
Watch if fall as humanity is spiraling down,
To the ground!

Bring it down to the wire,
Parasite my sire,
Set them all on fire.

Bring it down, bring it down to the wire.

Scrrraaaappppeeee!
Scrrraaaappppeeee!
Scrrraaaappppeeee!

Bring it down to the wire.

Scrrraaaappppeeee! (Want you)
Parasite my sire (Need You)
(Break you)
Set them all on fire!

Break it-
Down!

Forever by Papa Roach

In the brightest hour of my darkest day
I realized what is wrong with me
Can't get over you. can't get through to you
It's been a helter-skelter romance from the start

Take these memories that are Haunting me
Of a paper man cut into shreds by his own pair of scissors
He'll never forgive her...he'll never forgive her...

Because days come and go but my feelings for you are forever
Because days come and go but my feelings for you are forever

Sitting by a fire on a lonely night
Hanging over from another good time
With another girl... little dirty girl
You should listen to this story of a life
You're my heroine-in this moment I'm lonely fulfilling my darkest dreams
All these drugs all these women
I'm never forgiven... this broken heart of mine

Because days come and go but my feelings for you are forever,
Because days come and go but my feelings for you are forever

One last kiss,
before I go
Dry your tears,
it is time to let you go

One last kiss (one last kiss)
Before I go (before I go)
Dry your tears (dry your tears)
It is Time to let you go

Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever
Because days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever

One last kiss (one last kiss)
Before I go (before I go)
Dry your tears (dry your tears)
It is time to let you go

One last kiss,
Before I go,
Dry your tears,
it is time to let you go,
One last kiss

Sweet Jane, done here by two Bands, I post both Versions of the Song, my Favorite is performed by 'The Cowboy Junkies' Their Music is very Open As they Record their Songs Within Church Hall, and is all so very Hauntingly Beautiful, and the Vibes are real, and the Lady can sing like none other.  Margo Timmins Vocals are everything Soft, and Gentle and her Voice delivers live none other can.



Cowboy Junkies: Sweet Jane


Anyone who’s ever had a heart
Wouldn’t turn around and break it
And anyone who’s ever played a part
Wouldn’t turn around and hate it
Sweet Jane, sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane


You’re waiting for Jimmy down in the alley
Waiting there for him to get back home
Waiting down on the corner
and thinking of ways to get back home
Sweet Jane, sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane


Anyone who’s ever had a dream
Anyone who’s ever played a part
Anyone who’s ever been lonely
and anyone’s who’s ever split apart
Sweet Jane, sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane

Heavenly wine and roses to whisper to me when you smile
Heavenly wine and roses
Seem to whisper to me when you smile

La la la la, la la la…
Sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And here is one of the many versions The Velvet Undergrounds did, for comparison, the one above is in my Head.

The Velvet Underground: Sweet Jane


Standing on the corner, suitcase in my hand,
Jack is in his coat and Jane in her vest, and me,
I’m in a rock ’n’ roll band. Huh!
Ride n’ in a Stutz-Bearcat, Jim
Y ‘ know, those were different times!
Oh, all the poet, they studied rules of verses,
And the ladies, they rolled their eyes.
Sweet Jane! Whoa! Sweet Jane, oh-oh-a! Sweet Jane!

I’ll tell you something,
Jack, he is a banker,
And Jane, she is a clerk.
Both of them save their monies, ha,
And when, when they come home from work!
Ooh! Sittin’ down by the fire, oh!
The radio does play,
The classical music there, Jim.
“The March of the Wooden Soldiers”.
All you protest kids.
You can hear Jack say, get ready, ah,
Sweet Jane! Come on baby now! Sweet Jane! Oh-oh-a! Sweet Jane!


Some people, they like to go out dancing,
And other people, they have to work.  Just watch me now!
And there’s even some evil mothers,
Well they’re gonna tell you that everything is just dirt.
Y’ know that, women, never really faint,
And that villains always blink their eyes, woo!
And that, y’ know, children are the only ones who blush!
And that, life is, just to die!
And, everyone who ever had a heart, oh,
That wouldn’t turn around and break it.
And anyone who ever played a part, whoa,
And wouldn’t turn around and hate it!

Sweet Jane!  Whoa-oh-oh!  Sweet Jane! Sweet Jane. Sweet Jane.
Sweet Jane. Sweet Jane.

Radiohead - No Surprises

A heart that's full up like a landfill,
a job that slowly kills you,
bruises that won't heal.
You look so tired-unhappy,
bring down the government,
they don't, they don't speak for us.
I'll take a quiet life,
a handshake of carbon monoxide,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
Silent silence.

This is my final fit,
my final bellyache,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please.

Such a pretty house
and such a pretty garden.

No alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please.

What Am I to You - Norah Jones

What am I to you?
Tell me darling true
To me you are the sea
Fast as you can be
And deep the shade of blue.

When you're feeling low?
To whom else do you go?
See I cry if you hurt
I'd give you my last shirt
Because I love you so.

If my sky should fall
Would you even call?
Opened up my heart
I never want to part
I'm giving you the ball.

When I look in your eyes
I can feel the butterflies
I love you when you're blue
Tell me darlin' true
What am I to you

Yeah well if my sky should fall
Would you even call?
Opened up my heart
Never wanna part
I'm giving you the ball.

When I look in your eyes
I can feel the butterflies
Could you find a love in me?
Could you carve me in a tree?
Don't fill my heart with lies.

I will you love when you're blue
Tell me darlin' true
What am I to you?

Radio by Alkaline Trio

Shaking like a dog shittin' razorblades,
waking up next to nothing after dreaming of you and me
I'm waking up all alone, waking up so relieved
while you're taking your time with apologies,
I'm making my plans for revenge
Red eyes on orange horizons
If Columbus was wrong I'd drive straight off the edge
I'd drive straight off the edge

Taking your own life with boredom,
I'm taking my own life with wine -
it helps you to rule out the sorrow,
it helps me to empty my mind
Making the most of a bad time
I'm smoking the brains from my head
Leaving the coal calling the kettle black and orange and red
This kettle is seeing red

I've got a big fat ****in' bone to pick with you my darling
In case you haven't heard I'm sick and tired of trying
I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you,
plugged in and ready to fall

Shaking like a dog shittin' razorblades,
waking up next to nothing after dreaming of you and me
I'm waking up all alone, waking up so relieved
while you're taking your time with apologies,
I'm planning out my revenge
Red eyes on orange horizons
If Columbus was wrong I'd drive straight off the edge
I'm seeing red

I've got a big fat ****in' bone to pick with you my darling
In case you haven't heard I'm sick and tired of trying
I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you,
plugged in and ready to fall

Plugged in and ready to fall
Plugged in and ready to fall

Plugged in and ready to fall
