Voices Carry

I’m in the dark, I’d like to read his mind
but I’m frightened of the things I might find
Oh, there must be something he’s thinking of
to tear him away
when I tell him that I’m falling in love
why does he say
hush hush
keep it down now
voices carry
I try so hard not to get upset
because I know all the trouble I’ll get
oh, he tells me tears are something to hide
and something to fear
and I try so hard to keep it inside
so no one can hear
hush hush
keep it down now
voices carry
He wants me
but only part of the time
He wants me
if he can keep me in line
hush hush
keep it down now
voices carry
hush hush, darling, she might overhear
oh, no-voices carry
he said shut up he said shut up
oh God can’t you keep it down
voices carry
I wish he would let me talk.

Song of the Day: My Oh My by Slade

My Oh My

I believe in woman, my oh my
I believe in lovin’, my oh my
Don’t a woman need a man?
Try and catch one if you can
I believe in woman, my oh my

We all need someone to talk to, my oh my
We all need someone to talk to, my oh my
You need a shoulder to cry on
Call me, I’ll be standing by

We all need someone to talk to, my oh my
We all need a lotta lovin’, my oh my

Yeah, and whole lotta lovin’, my oh my

I can lend a helping hand
If you ain’t got nothing planned

We all need some lovin’, my oh my
Oh, yeah

Oh
Yeah

So let’s all swing together, my oh my
We can all swing together, my oh my

You’ve got troubles of your own
No need…

Runnin’ Down A Dream

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin’
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin’ little Runaway
I was flyin’

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream

I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There’s something good waitin’ down this road
I’m pickin’ up whatever’s mine

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream

Family Tree

Forgotten things remembered
The tigers eat their young
The body stayed but inside the head
The mind was on the run
Conspiracy of silence
The only way out of pain
Is turn around, run through it man
Too wet to come in from the rain
Tell them

I know they were doing it to you
But don’t try doing it to me

Let me show you, how I love you
It’s our secret, you and me
Let me show you, how I love you
But keep it in the family

When you hear them saying, “Trust Me”
Don’t wait to see what’s next
Thrown to the wolves forever trusting
Raised in a form of living hell
Sing a one note song of rage
Live and die within your heart
So beware in the shadows
Your family tree waits in the dark
I say

I know they were doing it to you
But don’t try doing it to me, no, no

Let me show you, how I love you
It’s our secret, you and me
Let me show you, how I love you
But keep it in the family tree

Let me show you, how I love you
It’s our secret, you and me
Let me show you, how I love you
The secret of the family tree

Let me show you, how I love you
It’s our secret, you and me
Let me show you, how I love you
But keep it in the family tree

Let me show you, how I love you
It’s our secret, you and me
Let me show you, how I love you
The secret of the family tree

Let me show you, how I love you
It’s our secret, you and me
Let me show you, how I love you

Song of the Day: Sign O’ the Times by Prince

Sign O’ the Times

Oh yeah
In France a skinny man
Died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle
And soon she did the same
At home there are seventeen-year-old boys
And their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called The Disciples
High on crack, totin’ a machine gun

Time, time

Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church
And killed everyone inside
You turn on the telly and every other story
Is tellin’ you somebody died
Sister killed her baby ‘cuz she couldn’t afford to feed it
And we’re sending people to the moon
In September my cousin tried reefer for the very first time
Now he’s doing horse, it’s June

Times, times

It’s silly, no’
When a rocket ship explodes
And everybody still wants to fly
Some say a man ain’t happy
Unless a man truly dies
Oh why
Time, time

Baby make a speech, Star Wars fly
Neighbors just shine it on
But if a night falls and a bomb falls
Will anybody see the dawn
Time, times

It’s silly, no’
When a rocket blows
And everybody still wants to fly
Some say a man ain’t happy, truly
Until a man truly dies
Oh why, oh why, Sign O the Times

Time, time

Sign O the Times mess with your mind
Hurry before it’s to late
Let’s fall in love, get married, have a baby
We’ll call him Nate… if it’s a boy

Time, time

Time, time

Korn,_2013

Clown

Anger, inside
Builds within, my body
Why, you hit me?
What have I done?
You tried to hit me!

[Chorus:]
Scream at me again, if you like
Throw your hate at me, with all your might
Hit me ’cause I’m strange, hit me
Tell me I’m a pussy and
you’re harder than me
What’s with you boy? Think hard
A tattooed body to, hide who you are
Scared to be honest, be yourself
A cowardly man

I, don’t run around
Trying to be, what’s not within me
Look, into my eyes
I am free
You’re just a wanna-be!

[Chorus:]
Scream at me again, if you like
Throw your hate at me, with all your might
Hit me ’cause I’m strange, hit me
Tell me I’m a pussy and
you’re harder than me
What’s with you boy? Think hard
A tattooed body to, hide who you are
Scared to be honest, be yourself
A cowardly man

To come out…

Hit me clown because I’m not
from your town now, hit me
clown [x4]

Clown you ain’t shit! Turn
around! Get your face
split! [x4]

[Chorus:]
Turn if you like,
Throw your hate at me,
with all your might,
Hit me ’cause I’m strange, hit me.
Tell me I’m a pussy and
you’re harder than me.
What’s with you boy? Think hard,
A tattooed body to hide who you are,
Scared to be honest, be yourself,
A cowardly man

I’m just too fucking little(x3)
I’m just too fucking mental(x4)

Only Women Bleed

Man’s got his woman to take his seed
He’s got the power – oh
She’s got the need
She spends her life through pleasing up her man
She feeds him dinner or anything she can

She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don’t come home at all
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Man makes your hair gray
He’s your life’s mistake
All you’re really lookin’ for is an even break

He lies right at you
You know you hate this game
He slaps you once in a while and you live and love in pain

She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don’t come home at all
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Black eyes all of the time
Don’t spend a dime
Clean up this grime
And you there down on your knees begging me please come
Watch me bleed

Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Song of the Day: Refugee by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers2

Refugee

We got somethin’ we both know it
We don’t talk too much about it
Yeah it ain’t no real big secret all the same
Somehow we get around it
Listen it don’t really matter to me baby
You believe what you want to believe
You see you don’t have to live like a refugee

Somewhere, somehow somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Tell me why you want to lay there
And revel in your abandon
Listen it don’t make no difference to me baby
Everybody’s had to fight to be free
You see you don’t have to live like a refugee
Now baby you don’t have to live like a refugee

Baby we ain’t the first
I’m sure a lot of other lover’s been burned
Right now this seems real to you
But it’s one of those things
You gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up, taken away and held for ransom
It don’t really matter to me
Everybody’s had to fight to be free
You see you don’t have to live like a refugee
I said you don’t have to live like a refugee

Hush

You pray for quiet,
Inside your head the screams won’t silence
I remember those days
The terror past our home, the fear that’s in your bones,
It just won’t go away, no.

The strangle holds, the insulting names,
The wound up shirt around his fist, the nose to nose beer stinking breath.
Thrown down onto the floor, so battered, bruised and sore
Choke down on the truth of it, and touch it until you break your neck

Hell’s where I was born! Hell’s where I was raised,
This hell is where I’m from and this hell is where I’ll stay.
The hush is all I need, to hush the misery
The hush that belongs to me, like the hush inside of dreams
Just be still and pray, and let the noise just fade away.

Retain to violence
Atop your heart like a secret closet,
So no one can penetrate
You just can’t stand the touch, affection weighs too much,
You push everyone away from

The reckoning! The bitter stings,
Whipped so bad I pissed myself still with a beating stub held belt
If this reminds you of home, you better know you’re not alone
Hold the gun up to my head, I’ll pull the trigger on myself!
Hell’s where I was born! Hell’s where I was raised,
This hell is where I’m from and this hell is where I’ll stay.
The hush is all I need, to hush the misery
The hush that belongs to me, like the hush inside of dreams
Just be still and pray

These are the memories. In me
You didn’t want to know! You didn’t want to know!
These are the memories we keep
We don’t want to show! We don’t want to show!
By now you need to know, (You’re not alone)

Hush is all I need, hush the misery
Hush belongs to me, like the hush inside of dreams
Hell’s where I was born! Hell’s where I was raised,
This hell is where I’m from and this hell is where I’ll stay
The hush is all I need, to hush the misery
The hush that belongs to me, like the hush inside of dreams
Just be still and pray and let the noise just fade away
