Mating Ritual – Look the other way

Mating Ritual – Look the other way

I wake up with the morning light
But I don’t know where I am
I can’t remember my first name
And there’s a voice inside my head

And I’ve got nothing but money in my back pocket
I got no time to waste
I can be who I want to be
I just don’t want to hear that voice again

I don’t care what you say about me
I don’t care if you ring around me
Every time that you step upon me
I’m gonna turn my head

So I can look the other way
Oh baby, I’m going to look the other way
So go live your life now

There’s a spine somewhere beneath my skin
But I sold it long ago
Always looking towards the future
But I’m living with the things I’ve done

Now I’ve got nothing but money in my back pocket
I got no time to waste
I can see deep in, I can feel the breeze
But I don’t wanna leave you just like this

So I look the other way
Oh you know, I look the other way
So go live your life now

Please, please, please, just leave me alone
Why can’t you please, oh please just leave me alone
Go live your life now

I don’t care what you think about me
I don’t care what you say to your friends
Every time that you try to fight me
I just gonna turn my head

So I can look the other way
I’m going to look the other way x3
So go live your life now

Reuben And The Dark – Heart in Two

Reuben And The Dark – Heart in Two

waiting there
a dawn before a darkness fell
i’m lost but not alone
and all my words have turned to stones again

take me with you
when you carry me away
and i will throw all of these words
i have to say

but you’re still a storm cloud
but i love you just the same
while you’re out
killing shadows with your shade

and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you
and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you

trouble and i
a long lost kind
statue of one hundred
blinking lights

well i built this wall around you
so no-one else could hurt you
but now i’ll trade you
truth for truth

you’re still a storm cloud
but i love you just the same

and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you
and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you

and i broke my heart in two

[inst.]

and this same revery
came over me
like firelight, floodlight, sunlight

this same revery
came over me
like firelight, floodlight, sunlight, oh…

and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you
and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you

and i broke my heart in two
one for me and one for you

HAERTS – Heart

HAERTS – Heart

I will never break your heart
Don’t go blame it on me
Blame the silence, the voices, the fear
But just leave your heart be

There’s a reason we search for the one
They will bond us to be free
They will take our roots down in the ground
So deep

I will never leave you dark
At sunrise I will be there
So we’ll stamp bare foot on the ground (?)
Catching each other’s tears

There’s a reason we search for the one
They will bond us to be free
They will take our roots down in the ground
So deep

If we’re ever gonna break apart
Don’t you go, don’t you break your heart
If we’re ever gonna break apart
Don’t you go, don’t you break your heart

There’s a reason we search for the one
They will bond us to be free
They will take our roots down in the ground
So deep

If we’re ever gonna break apart
Don’t you go, don’t you break your heart
If we’re ever gonna break apart
Don’t you go, don’t you break your heart

Team Me – Riding My Bicycle (from Feddersensgate 5A to Mõllervegen 31)

Team Me – Riding My Bicycle (from Feddersensgate 5A to Mõllervegen 31)

[Long Intro]

I couldn’t find that suiting phrase
I could not think of what to say
Once again you pulled me down
Under my skin, yet again

I’ve seen the cut-throat bastard
I’ve heard his lies, I’ve heard him sing
I’ve seen the cut-throat bastard dance
But I’ve never seen him take a chance

Release me and send me off to a place
quiet and desolate
Release me and send me off to a place
quiet and desolate

So let this compass point me home
I’ve let this compass be the one
I’ll let these songs take me away
And let my songs lead the way

Release me and send me off to a place
quiet and desolate
Release me and send me off to a place
quiet and desolate

Release me and send me off to a place
quiet and desolate
Release me and send me off to a place
quiet and desolate

Team Me – Steven

Team Me – Steven

A dark-driven mind like yours is hard to find and hard to understand
Such a drag to see you underwater when the ocean level only climbs
‘Cause when you get scared then I get scared all images get lost
And my usual rescue remedies don’t seem to work at all

And previous suicides don’t scare me, no, not anymore
And threats won’t get a hold of me, not anymore
And when you handcuff all my melodies, I’ll still have my voice
And I’ll repeat the words you know so well

Get well

You’ve been here before, you’ve seen this place, and you’ve thought these thoughts a million times
But a million times can’t rescue you or make you feel alright
In a pile of your own self-absorbed unhappiness you crawl
And the echo from the previous days will haunt you like a ghost

And previous suicides don’t scare me, no, not anymore
And threats won’t get a hold of me, not anymore
And when you handcuff all my melodies, I’ll still have my voice
And I’ll repeat the words you know so well

Get well

Team Me – Kick & Curse

Team Me – Kick & Curse

The bubble burst
And I’m so sorry
Couldn’t tear up my part
Just came to follow my heart

So here I am
By the flood gates
So much easier to leave
Than be left all alone

I spent days
In a fever
The chemical night
Gave my a ruthless feeling

So here I am
By the flood gates
So much easier to leave
Than be left all alone

It knocked my to my knees
Now I’m on the floor
With a pack of wolves
outside my door

It knocked my to my knees
Now I’m on the floor
With a pack of wolves
outside my door

The sleepless nights
Left me begging
For you to come back
For you to give me comfort

I’ll kick and curse
For what it’s worth
I’ll even admit
that I was wrong to let you go

It knocked my to my knees
Now I’m on the floor
With a pack of wolves
outside my door

It knocked my to my knees
Now I’m on the floor
With a pack of wolves
outside my door

It knocked my to my knees
Now I’m on the floor
With a pack of wolves
outside my door

Dream Koala – Saturn Boy

https://soundcloud.com/dreamkoala/saturn-boy

Dream Koala – Saturn Boy

I look at the stars at night
And wonder
If there is a God
If we are alone
In the universe
If you hear me
Take me away
‘Cause this place
Is not made for me
They are burning the trees
Killing our mother

So far from home
A million miles away
Can you feel my call?
Hear my voice?
So far from home
Galaxies away
I feel your call
I hear your voice

It scares me to think of tomorrow
The future
What’s waiting for us
If there is a God
In the universe
If you hear me
Take me away
‘Cause my soul
Is not made for this
There is blood on their lips
Houses on fire

So far from home
A million miles away
Can you feel my call?
Hear my voice?
So far from home
Galaxies away
I feel your call
I hear your voice

So far from home
A million miles away
Can you feel my call?
Hear my voice?
So far from home
Galaxies away
I feel your call
I hear your voice

The Little Hands of Asphalt – Things that eventually die

http://lazyacrerecords.bandcamp.com/track/things-that-eventually-die

More lyrical genius from Sjur Lyseid, though I don’t think I’ve got it 100% here. This is a rarer TLHoA song, and on the same compilation that it resides on is this song by Tiny Cinema which is also worth checking out: http://tinycinema.co.uk/track/e-minor-d

The Little Hands of Asphalt – Things that eventually die

In my palm there’s a smudge of the words that define my will
And the three hundred questions that raises, they’re hard to kill
So I’ll let subtlety burst its pipes
‘Cause now cynicism seems right
And… Every lung with smoggy friendship is never too inflamed again
Past the tongue in the moving lips
The secrets in a lion’s den

And there’re these things that I know that I never had wished I did
They weigh more than the books that I carry around but never read
Hoping I’ll get through them someday
And forget the disarray
Of hopes and dreams in constant motion
And tunnels with confusing lights
And in the corner of some lurking ocean they possibly unveil as right (?)

‘Cause there are nine million bicycles and twenty million mindless souls
They will drink all the piss that just happens to hit their bowls
And I’ll cater them at will
‘Cause what piracy really kills
Is the viscous beasts that made a big catch and even bigger words
But any day now the plane will crash
And leave the sky to the birds

Well after two more barks I’m back to dubious and off to work
So this song here goes out to every lonesome record store clerk
Free yourselves from Rob Bourdon’s(?) chains, though his question still remains
But either way we were miserable kids so the irony is clear
Our high horses were one trick ponies
And I haven’t laughed for years

So now I’m looking through the classifieds, I need a different set of skills
So I can stop writing stories and start writing someone bills
And then finally wave goodbye
To the things that eventually die
The peaceful look on perfect strangers faces as I pass them by
Or the bands we named after mountain ranges, or maybe it was books we liked

Said The Whale – Helpless Son

I typed up the lyrics to some songs recently whilst I was away (without internet access) to be posted online sometime upon my return, but when looking for a video to head these lyrics found that the official video was all that was needed. Enjoy, particularly if you haven’t heard a Said The Whale song before:
