I'm also a big fan of self titled, especially with numbers (ex. Led Zeppelin IV). I'm less thrilled about albums named after songs, though some exceptions exist.

I've done myself an impossible crime
Had to paint myself a hole, and fall inside.


Turn The Page

I can't write a song. Its not that I'm incapable, I have in the past writen some lyrics that I'm proud of though none of them fit well to music, its more of that I have nothing to write about. So I thought about the lyrics of my favorite songs. A good deal of them have to do with love. I love you, I want you, You've done me wrong, I'm leaving you. So nix on that. I've never been in love, I haven't been lusting after anyone for ages, and its been a long time since a girl has done me wrong. I've tried to kinda make things up, to do imagery song writing. But I always feel a bit phony. How can I sing about an emotion that I haven't experienced? A lot of the other songs, since I listen to so much blues influenced music, are about anger and depression. Something I'm a bit more familiar with. Most of my older songs have to do with that. And wile I'm still depressed its not the violent, overwhelming depression that has plagued me for the last couple of years. Right now I'm in the midst of something very different. A smoldering cynical form of the emotion that is more defeatist then passionate. How do I write a song that says 'nothing has happened, nothing happened again, I'm just bored and upset'. Its hardly song writing material. So I'm stuck in a rut.

wow, thanks very much if you read all of that.

(for some reason they didn't have turn the page anywhere on the web so I put stay positive, by the same artist on the playlist instead. but you realy should check out turn the page.)

all stare, eyes glazed
garage burnt down, the fire raged



You get one of those days were everything gos right but the sky is a little bit gray and its a little bit cold but thats ok. It shouldn't be able to ruin your day. So you go through the day and you have a good time and you get home and get in bed and you realize that it did ruin your day. That somehow the whole thing was a bit off and prevented you from enjoying anything. And you get really upset because that was such a waist of such a good day, why couldn't it have been yesterday? Yesterday you were happy and excited and wanted to have some fun but nothing happened. Had this day happened yesterday it would have been incredible. You could have enjoyed it. But instead your lying here in you bed, trying to get to sleep and obsessing about what should have been an amazing day but instead was just sad.

That was my week

all my friends are skeletons
they beat the rhythm with their bones
