1. "cigarettes and chocolate milk" rufus wainwright

cigarettes and chocolate milk
these are just a couple of my cravings
everything it seems i likes a little bit stronger
a little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me



2. "at the hop" devendra banhart

put me in your suitcase, let me help you pack
cause you're never coming back, no you're never coming back
cook me in your breakfast and put me on your plate
cause you know i taste great, yeah you know i taste great
at the hop it's grease ball heaven
with candy pants and archie too
put me in your dry dream or put me in your wet
if you haven't yet, no if you haven't yet
light me with your candle and watch the flames grow high
no it doesn't hurt to try, it doesn't hurt to try
well i won't stop all of my pretending that you'll come home
you'll be coming home, someday soon
put me in your blue skies or put me in your gray
there's gotta be someway, there's gotta be someway
put me in your tongue tie, make it hard to say
that you ain't gonna stay, that you ain't gonna stay
wrap me in your marrow, stuff me in your bones
sing a mending moan, a song to bring you home



3. "the futile" say anything

shit! nothing makes sense, so i won't think about it
i'll go with the ignorance
eat, sleep, fuck and flee; in four words, that's me
i am full of indifference
what do the old people teach us but how to die, die!, die, die!
and what do those hissy fits teach you except how to cry, pussy, cry?
yeah, the futile, the futile, it outweighs the beautiful
futile, the futile, it outweighs the beautiful
taste! - i have no taste. i don't like these tiny portions or your artful abortions of sound,
sealed with a kiss, slathered in the sauce sarcastic
so go choke on your irony
i'm eating rat poison for dinner.
pull the cord from the phone, i am dining alone



4. "peach, plum, pear" joanna newsom

we speak in the store, i'm a sensitive bore
and you're markedly more, and i'm oozing suprise
but it's late in the day and you're well on your way
what was golden went gray and i'm suddenly shy
and the gathering floozies afford to be choosy
and all sneezing darkly in the dimming divide
and i have read the right books to interpret your looks
you were knocking me down with the palm of your eye
this was unlike the story it was written to be
i was riding its back when it used to ride me
and we were galloping manic to the mouth of the source
we were swallowing panic in the face of its force
and i am blue and unwell
made me bolt like a horse
now it's done watch it go
you've changed some water runs from the snow
am i so dear do i run rare
you've changed some - peach, plum, pear



5. "rock 'n roll suicide" david bowie

time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
you pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
the wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
oh, you're a rock n roll suicide
you're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
and the clocks waits so patiently on your song
you walk past a cafe but you dont eat when youve lived too long
oh, no, no, no, youre a rock n roll suicide
chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
but the day breaks instead so you hurry home
dont let the sun blast your shadow
dont let the milk float ride your mind
youre so natural - religiously unkind
oh no love, youre not alone
youre watching yourself but youre too unfair
you got your head all tangled up but if i could only make you care
oh no love, youre not alone
no matter what or who youve been
no matter when or where youve seen
all the knives seem to lacerate your brain
ive had my share, ill help you with the pain
youre not alone



6. "i don't love anyone" belle and sebastian

but if theres one thing that i learned when i was still a child
its to take a hiding
yeah if theres one thing that i learned when i was still at school
its to be alone
out in the street today
the kids are playing, having fun
i pass them by im not a kid, no
i dont love anyone
i met a man today
he told me something pretty strange
theres always somebody saying something
he said, the world is as soft as lace.
but i dont love anyone




7. "combat baby" metric

we used to leave the blue lights on and there was a beat
ever since you have been gone it’s all caffeine-free
and faux punk fatigues
said it all before
they try to kick it, their feet fall asleep
yet no harm done no
none of them want to fight me
combat baby come back baby
fight off the lethargy
don’t go quietly combat baby
said you would never give up easy
combat baby come back
get back in town i wanna paint it black
i wanna get around easy living crowd so flat
said it all before they try to kick it, their feet fall asleep
i want to be wrong but no one here wants to fight me like you do




8. "terrible angels" cocorosie

if every angel's terrible, then why do you welcome them?
you provide the bird bath, i provide the skin
and bathing in the moonlight i'm to tremble like a kitten
if blue eyed babes raised as hitler's little brides and sons
they got angelic tendencies like some boys tend to act like queens
oh if every angel's terrible then why do you watch her sleep
you love to hear her sing and wear purple eyes like rings
well the flowers have no scent and the child's been miscarried
oh every angel's terrible said freud and rilke all the same
rimbaud never paid them no mind but jimmi morrison had his elevators
his elevators, he had his elevator angels
if every angel's terrible why do you hide inside her
like a child in a skirt the supermarket's loud and bright




9. "i'll be your friend" bright eyes

you said they laid out lots of coke but you don't know how much you did
now you don't want me to go home because you are afraid you might get sick
just like the bad news you accept just like that boy you're gonna get
it's all those drunken promises
i'll be your friend but you just haven't made me yet
so you come chasing after me but i'm just barely out the door
down in the belly of the beast we waited with the passengers
just like the train i gotta catch just like that song i can't finish
it's the mistake i won't regret you'll be my friend
but i just haven't made you yet




10. "a lack of color" death cab for cutie

and when i see you i really see you upside down
but my brain knows better it picks you up and turns you around
if you feel discouraged that there's a lack of color here
please don't worry lover it's really bursting at the seems
absorbing everything the spectrum's a to z
this fact not fiction
for the first time in years
and all the girls in every girlie magazine
can't make me feel any less alone
i'm reaching for the phone
to call at 7:03 and on your machine i slur a plea for you to come home




11. "king's crossing" elliott smith

the king's crossing was the main attraction
dominos are falling in a chain reaction
the scraping subject ruled by fear told me
whiskey works better than beer
the judge is on vinyl, decisions are final
and nobody gets a reprieve and every wave is tidal
if you hang around you're going to get wet
i can't prepare for death any more than i already have
all you can do now is watch the shells
the game looks easy, that's why it sells
frustrated fireworks inside your head
are going to stand and deliver talk instead
the method acting that pays my bills
keeps the fat man feeding in beverly hills
i got a heavy metal mouth that hurls obscenity
and i get my check from the trash treasury
because i took my own insides out

this is the place where time reverses
dead men talk to all the pretty nurses
unstruments shine on a silver tray
don't let me get carried away
don't let me get carried away
don't let me be carried away




12. "waiting to know you" the fiery furnaces

i'm waiting to know you by the way
send up the balloons, its right to assume
i'm waiting to know you by the way
flash like a cape, misses your way
and when i'm about to give up hope
denote with my telescope
i'm standing gone the navy yard
to see could that one for me be




13. "every you, every me" placebo

sucker love is heaven sent you pucker up, our passion's spent
my hearts a tart, your body's rent my body's broken, yours is spent
carve your name into my arm instead of stressed, i lie here charmed
cause there's nothing else to do,
every me and every you
sucker love, a box i choose no other box i choose to use
another love i would abuse, no circumstances could excuse
in the shape of things to come too much poison come undone
cause there's nothing else to do, every me and every you
sucker love is known to swing prone to cling and waste these things
pucker up for heavens sake there's never been so much at stake
i serve my head up on a plate it's only comfort, calling late
cause there's nothing else to do, every me and every you
like the naked leads the blind i know i'm selfish, i'm unkind
sucker love i always find, someone to bruise and leave behind
all alone in space and time there's nothing here but what here's mine
something borrowed, something blue every me and every you



14. "by your side" cocorosie

i'll always be by your side
even when you're down and out
i'll always be by your side
even when you're down and out
i just wanted to be your housewife
all i wanted was to be your housewife
i'll iron your clothes
i'll shine your shoes
i'll make your bed
and cook your food
i'll never cheat
i'll be the best girl you'll ever meet
and for a diamond ring
i'll do these kinds of things
i'll scrub your floor
never be a bore
i'll tuck you in
i'do not snore
i'd wear your black eyes




15. "crosses" josé gonzález

don't you know that i'll be around to guide you
through your weakest moments to leave them behind you
returning nightmares only shadows
we'll cast some light and you'll be alright for now
crosses all over, heavy on your shoulders
the sirens inside you waiting to step forward
disturbing silence darkens your sight
we'll cast some light and you'll be alright for now
crosses all over the boulevard
the streets outside your window overflooded
people staring they know you've been broken
repeatedly reminded by the looks on their faces
ignore them tonight and you'll be alright
we'll cast some light and you'll be alright




16. "poison oak" bright eyes

poison oak, some boyhood bravery
when a telephone was a tin can on a string
and i fell asleep with you still talking to me
you said you weren't afraid to die
in polaroids you were dressed in women's clothes
were you made ashamed, why'd you lock them in a drawer?
i don't think that i ever loved you more
then when you turned away when you slammed the door
when you stole the car and drove towards mexico
and you wrote bad checks just to fill your arm
i was young enough, i still believed in war
well, let the poets cry themselves to sleep
and all their tearful words will turn back into steam
but me i'm a single cell on a serpents tongue
there's a muddy field where a garden was
and i'm glad you got away but i'm still stuck out here
my clothes are soaking wet from your brother's tears
and i never thought this life was possible
you're the yellow bird that i've been waiting for
the end of paralysis
i was a statuette
now i'm drunk as hell on a piano bench
and when i press the keys
it all gets reversed
the sound of loneliness makes me happier




17. "us" regina spektor

they made a statue of us and it put it on a mountain top
now tourists come and stare at us
blow bubbles with their gum
take photographs for fun, for fun
they'll name a city after us
and later say it's all our fault
then they'll give us a talking to
then they'll give us a talking to
because they've got years of experience
we're living in a den of thieves
rummaging for answers in the pages
we're living in a den of thieves
and it's contagious
and it's contagious
and it's contagious
and it's contagious
we wear our scarves just like a noose
but not 'cause we want eternal sleep
and though our parts are slightly used
new ones are slave labor you can keep




18. "angel, angel, down we go together" morrissey

angel, angel, don't take your life tonight
i know they take and that they take in turn
and they give you nothing real
for yourself in return
and when they've used you
and they've broken you
and wasted all your money
and cast your shell aside
and when they've bought you
and they've sold you
and they've billed you for the pleasure
and they've made your parents cry
i will be here
OH, BELIEVE ME, i will be here, believe me
angel, don't take your life
some people have got no pride
they do not understand
the urgency of life
but i love you more than life
i love you more than life
i love you more than life
i love you more than life



19. "such great heights" iron and wine

i am thinking it's a sign that the freckles in our eyes
are mirror images and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned
and i have to speculate that god himself did make us into
corresponding shapes like puzzles pieces from the clay
true, it may seem like a stretch
but it's thoughts like this that catch my troubled head
when you're away, when i am missing you to death
when you were out there on the road
for several weeks of shows
and when you scan the radio
i hope this song will guide you home
they will see us waving from such great heights
"come down now," they'll say
but everything looks perfect from far away
"come down now," but we'll stay
i've tried my best to leave this all on your machine
but the persistent beat sounded thin upon listening
that frankly will not fly you will hear the shrillest highs
and lowest lows with the windows down when this is guiding you home
they will see us waving from such great heights
"come down now," they'll say
but everything looks perfect from far away
"come down now," but we'll stay...
