the saddest landscape [09 Dec 2007|12:02pm]

emoben
we mouthed the words to all of the saddest songs because they felt like
home and i watched you out of the corner of my eye and that smile you
gave me launched one thousand beats of my heart. so you can lean a
little harder i will take that weight from you, i will be that call in
the middle of the night the picture kept in your favourite book and if
you just want someone to call yours i will be that tool i was just
looking for someone to leave me breathless and i found it in you.... .
and i dont want to miss you anymore so here is one song to call your
own to kiss away the tears and leave no traces of pain so angelic and
comforting these are my dreams all coming true and i must have played
that message one thousand times just to hear your voice
before i went to sleep

broken [13 Nov 2007|01:55pm]

emoben
We bonded over broken bones.
Who's broke skin.
Who's fractured in two places.
Who's hurt the most.
We bonded over broken bones.
How many vicodin we took before bed.
How many we sold to the band sleeping on our floor,
week one of a two week tour.
My god knows they'll need it more than I.
You and me and an x-ray machine.
I swear that day you saw straight through me.
We're two bags of bones,
broken and talking of people we both know in common
amongst other things that I shouldn't mention.
You and me.
A hospital love scene.
If only these broken bodies were ours forever...

nasty habits [12 Nov 2007|02:18am]

telescopeeyes89
So he made me think he liked me, and then he told me such sweet lies. And then he got me drunk and slept with me, and now he decided to let me know that he doesn't want anything serious. Oh yeah, and he got me to choose him over his brother, who is seriously sweet and loves me to death. I have a nasty habit of choosing assholes.

Lyrics, pretty please?


I'm holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
And I'm hearing what you say
but I just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait

You tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...


that it's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late



I'd take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it's nothing new - yeah
I loved you with the a fire red
Now it's turning blue, and you say...
I'm sorry like an angel
heaven let me think was you

But I'm afraid...


It's too late to apologize, it's too late

emoben
I don't want to hold my breath as long as you can
I don't want to starve to death just 'cause you can
What happens to the mountains we were gonna climb
What happens to the house we promised both in time
Why can't I hate you or get it off my mind
Why can't I just relax and leave the past behind
I don't want to have sex anymore just because I can
With anyone that doesn't trust me stabs demands

What happens to the trains that we were gonna jump
What happens to our plans to make our lives erupt?
I can't get past myself
I'm falling over you
So now I'm rolling up my sleeves
I'm just a worker bee
Hey Mom, look at me, I'm thinning
Anger, guilt, rejection, pride got caught whistling, walk the line
Always knew you'd find a reason
Always knew you'd find a reason some way
Did you know it'd break your heart, that you would leave it from the start?
Honestly that's just to hard to work with
Why are you surprised that I miss it, that I try
That I sing myself raw
Every night?

Leave the keys
Leave the keys Pick up the boxes with your knees
And break a sweat with me one last time

Kind Of Like Spitting - Aubergine [30 Dec 2006|01:53pm]

emoben

(You make a man feel safe.)

I live in a town where the streets are paved with glass
Where the thriving upper-class just can't be bothered
I live in a town where the weeklies are just trash
Where pretty faces dominate the present and the past
I live in a town where no money means no friends
Where the party never ends
Can I borrow a fiver?
I live in a town where I made this demo tape,
It's called " The Wagon Wheel falling off our Record Deal"
The hit's called "Make You Wait"

I'm no victim; broke is different from poor
I'm still learning what my heart is for
Overall it's overwhelming
Feels like a punch every time I come home
Hits like a fist every time I come home
Running out of excuses for every explosion

I live in a town that reminds me what I owe her.
I'd like to roll along but Volcano won't turn over
I live in a town where I want to be alone
Where I'll never build a home, feel stupid for trying.
I live in a town where I made this demo tape.
It's called "The Wagon Wheel falling off our Record Deal"
The hit's called "Make You Wait"

I'm no victim; broke is different from poor
I'm still learning what my heart is for
Overall it's overwhelming
Feels like a punch every time I come home
So many songs sung in shrill thinning tones

I'm no victim; broke is different from poor
I'm still learning what my heart is for
Overall it's overwhelming
Feels like a punch every time I come home
Hits like a fist every time I come home
Running out of excuses for every explosion.

placebo - Follow The Cops Back Home [01 Apr 2006|03:41pm]

emoben
The call to arms was never true,
Time to imbibe, here's to you,
I'll tell you stories bruised and blue,
Drum machines and landslides.

Just one more round before we're through,
More psychedelic yuppie flu,
It's such a silly thing to do,
Now we're stuck on rewind..

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses.

The call to arms was never true,
Let's take a ride and push it through,
Suspended animation in blue,
Blame it on apartheid,

Let's spend the night in Jimmy's shoes,
I'll give you coats and cheap shampoo,
I'll give you nothing else to do,
Now we're stuck on rewind..

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And Rob their houses..

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses..

The call to arms was never true,
I'm medicated..how are you?
Let's take a dive swim right through,
Sophisticated point of view.

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And Rob their houses..

Let's follow the cops back home
Follow the cops back home
Let's follow the cops back home
And rob their houses..

youth group - shadowland [23 Jan 2006|10:31pm]

emoben
Released under watchful skies
into a town I didn't recognize
I was a tourist with no story,
lost in this purgatory
Escaped the smell of chalk and shame,
I pledged a classroom in my name
The PTA won't bless me
and the yearbook will assess me, yeah

I walked down these familiar streets,
they're filled with circus freaks
Your plans are as useful as baby's hand,
there's no planning in shadow, shadowland

I chase you round the chimney stacks,
the burnt earth pressed into our backs
It was so dark I just don't know what I kissed
and I couldn't even see what I missed
You walked me across freedom fields,
my shadow was a forcefield
I want to float upon my memories,
not sink into the gloaming seas of shadowland

Weight loss, first frost, valium, sink fast
Life coach, guru, I turn and I've found you

Do I deserve this, I ask myself nervously looking deep into your eyes.
You smile back sadly; we're ending so badly, though its darkly funny, I guess.
Hopelessly I beg away, though you don't care what I say.
So I say we won't be just friends, and I walk away, I walk away.
And Sometimes, I stop and stare, though I know its much better if I just don't care.
Sometimes you stare back so long, why don't you just move on, not keep me holding on?
God how I miss you, now that I can't kiss you, and ask if you've had a good day.
My dreams are so lonely. If we could have only, managed not to throw it away.
But maybe it's better this way, a thought you quietly conveyed
As all my worst fears came true, and night suddenly shrouded the day.
You kindness is awfully cruel, when it just keeps me in love with you like a fool.
And seeing you everyday, just serves to keep me here, pining away.
Your emotions seem to be, at odds with all the things you told me.
And when you smile my way, I almost expect you to say....That sometimes, I stop and stare back so long, why don't you just move on, not keep me holding on?

i know you didn't rip my heart out on purpose

i just wanted you to know how much you hurt me
i loved you
goodbye

together just one beating heart [10 Aug 2005|02:15pm]

[ mood | confused ]

Stars//Sleep Tonight

We don't want to sleep tonight
Still young like that I count the lines
Beside your mouth that smiles now
My arms reach up as you go down
With buried heads we both forget
All of the past and it's regret
Wind picks up, the window shakes
But we won't hear the morning break

You will cry and I will cry
Cause all the love's alive tonight
You will cry and I will cry
Cause all the love's alive tonight

Neighborhoods will try to dream
While you and me we hold and lean
Onto bodies slick and charged
Together just one beating heart

All the wonder's quiet now
We hear the leaves fall to the ground
Morning light upon our bed
An ally while I catch you breath

You will cry and I will cry
Cause all the love's alive tonight
You will cry and I will cry
Cause all the love's alive tonight

\\..cursive..// [10 Aug 2005|10:28pm]

emoben
I need a catalyst, to rekindle the flame
That once burned within these fists where defeat remains
The night has fallen down the staircase...
I need a catalyst, to rekindle the flame
That once burned within these fists where defeat remains
One Februrary night, we screamed our agonies
And I swear I tried to care
I tried, I tried...
But the icicles hung down like prison bars...
I need a catalyst, to rekindle the flame
That once burned within these fists where defeat remains
One February night, we screamed our agonies
And I swear I tried to care
I tried, I tried...
(And) I lost the will to fight...
The will to fight...
(I lost the will to fight... I lost the will to fight... I lost it... I lost
it...
I lost the will to fight.)

muddled from ujournal [15 Jul 2005|01:41am]

a_lousy_poet
Jets to Brazil--Rose

Rose can I come down for a drink, it's happened again. I've got a story that's so written poorly, I'll begin at the end. Rose you must know, I couldn't find the words that it takes to say stay. Now she's gone away.

Rose can I come down to your garden, I can only wheel flowers. Bring me your shovel there's a heart to be buried and a body as well. Your letters are tied, with a strand of your hair; in a breast pocket safe, they keep talking. Now I wake up alone with my eyes to the floor and I see where my night will end weeping once more.

Rose can I come down to your rose bed to lay in your thorns. Now I am empty so much is buried I will not be born. Rose you must know, I felt more than I said. Now I've got all the words and no one. Now the hole has been dug and I'm down on my knees. Rain make us mud, and Spring we bloom as one.

Punchline - Pretty Petty [08 Jul 2005|10:02pm]

bratpack
its pretty petty that we said we'd make our mark
but we're staring in the dark at what could be anything.
turn the lights out and look into my eyes
and tell me what you think you see
i think i hide it in the sleeves

of the ten shirts that im in
while you are young and innocent,
ill complain like you and you
for lack of better things to say and:

there's such a thing as misery,
please don't define yourself that way.
i know its cool to be depressed...

im confused that maybe i might lose
in a generation i cant tell a look
from a year these days.
the same ending every single time
we are spending all our dimes and
dollars on black attire.
tell the truth do you really have no couth
do you really want to see a life
lost in an accident?
its getting old all the stories we are told
from the image that you've sold
but i admit that we're all

guilty, empty, so incomplete.

what kind of mood is this you're in,
you are young and innocent,
ill complain like you for lack of better things to say and:

theres such a thing as misery,
why is it cool to be depressed.
please don't define yourself that way,
i know its cool to be depressed.
theres such a thing as misery,
i know its cool to be depressed.
why is a smile a mystery and
why is it cool to be depressed.

[ mood | bored ]

my heart is on my sleeve
wear it like a bruise or blackeye
my badge, my witness
that means that i believed
every single lie you said

cause every pane of glass that your pebbles tap negates the pains i went through to avoid you
and every little pat on the shoulder for attention fails to mention i still hate you

but there's a light on in chicago
and i know i should be home
all the colors of the street signs..
they remind me of the pickup truck out in front of your neighbor's house

she took me down and said:
"boys like you are overrated. so save your breath."
loaded words and loaded friends
are loaded guns to our heads

cause every pane of glass that your pebbles tap negates the pains i went through to avoid you
and every little pat on the shoulder for attention fails to mention i still hate you

but there's a light on in chicago
and i know i should be home
all the colors of the street signs..
they remind me of the pickup truck out in front of your neighbor's house

you want apologies
girl, you might hold your breath
until your breathing stops forever, forever
the only thing you'll get
is this curse on your lips:
i hope they taste of me forever

and there's a light on in chicago
and i know i should be home
all the colors of the street signs..
they remind me of the pickup truck out in front of your neighbor's

with every breath i wish your body will be broken again, again
with every breath i wish your body would be broken again, again
with every breath i wish your body will be broken again, again
with every breath i wish your body would be broken again

mae -- the ocean [24 Jun 2005|05:08pm]

kisstobetrayxx

am i alone in this?
never a night where i can sleep myself till day.
we must try to figure it out, figure it out.
it won't be that easy.
we lost it somehow.
you come over unannounced.
silence broken by your voice in the dark.
i need you here tonight
just like the ocean needs the waves.
oh, the night becomes the space that's somewhere in between
what i feel and what i'm told.
sitting on the shoreline trying to figure it out, figure it out.
to find out the meaning and reach it somehow.
you come over unannounced.
silence broken by your voice in the dark.
i need you here tonight
just like the ocean needs the wave.
fall around me now,
like stars that shine and brighten the way.
i need you here tonight just like this night it needs the rain.
the season has changed.
the wind, it moves colder now, colder now.
the clouds are raised,
the rain it falls harder now, all around.
you come over unannounced.
silence broken by your voice in the dark.
i need you here tonight,
just like the ocean needs the waves.
so fall around me now.
just like stars that shine and brighten the way.
i need you here tonight just like this night it needs the rain.
over unannounced, silence broken by your voice in the dark.
i need you here tonight,
just like the ocean needs the waves.
just like the stars that fall around me now.

hey everyone. [21 Jun 2005|02:00pm]

_icaughtfire__
hey everyone. i just have a question. does ANYONE know who these lyrics are by??

What if I told you that you're incredible? Let me take a moment and regain my breath. Show me that face you always make, the one that makes me want to kiss you so bad. Put your hands in my back pockets while I kiss your neck and support me when I fall into this knee high grass. So don't think I'm lieing when I tell you that I get lost in your eyes. Turn the headlights off and lose our light. Run with me in this pitch-black night. Wait till we collide and bump heads, giving us a reason to laugh ourselves to sleep tonight.


comment if you know what song this is..thank you so much.
