Daydream Believer

New song
Ask me to play it for you

The fighter (tentative title)

the fighter, he bruised my face
the fall is such a waist
and you just wanted to get away from this place

can you teach a man to fly
a hand to say goodbye
can you teach me to not ask why

there must be a matter or two
you must have know I was playing to loose
but there must be something the matter with me
I guess I'd have know you were going to leave

would you please not look me in the eyes
you never want to try
why do you keep me around each time I lie

oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
of the bluebird as she sings

We Will Become Silhouettes

Everything is broken. I like that phrase. Its from the first song on a radiohead album that came out about thirteen years ago and it sums up long term depression, the theme of the record, quite well. When your down you loose interest in what your doing and you run to something else. Computer, guitar, music, tv, video games, they all seem a bit empty. So you do nothing or you do something and pretend your having fun and you lash out at your friends and family for no reason and you go out of your mind. And what ever ends up happening it doesn't matter because everything is broken.

P.S. Does anyone want to come see Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and Port O'Brian on wednesday for ten dollars?

and pictures of you and I'm not coming out
until this is all over

Where is My Mind?

Please do not tell me you don't like that song because its overplayed, or because those idiots like it, or because the lead singer is an asshole. Ok, I concede that when some moron raves about a track it becomes embarrassing but please, instead of saying "thats far from their best track, though" just say "your pretty dumb, could you just stop talking". Don't let them take that song, or that album, or that band from you. And how often do you listen to the radio anyway? For you overplayed means "herd about six people mention it". And anyway, are you really listening to music for social reasons? I thought you actually liked it. So do me a favor, pretend that no one else ever listened to it, pretend the band doesn't exist. I'm tired of your shit. Just here the fucking music.

your head will collapse but theres nothing in it
and you'll ask yourself, where is my mind?

Brainy

I found this site called tiny mix tapes that give reviews and music news. More importantly they make mix tapes for you if you request. So I signed up to be one of the robots who create these tapes and I made one for a girl who wanted to let this quirky guy know she loves him and then I saw the one listed below. I would make hopeless a tape but three people already did. The request is just so incredible. I want a girl who looks sad over tea every morning.


You and I have never met, and at the risk of sounding creepy, I wanted to let you know that I love you, and that, even though you look sad over your tea every morning in the shop, you are beautiful.
