Sarah_Cries: "Turn away, if you could get me a drink of water cause my lips are chapped and faded call my Aunt Marie. Help her gather all my things and bury me in all my favorite colors. My sisters and my brothers still I will not kiss you cause the hardest part of this is leaving you. Now turn away cause I'm awful just to see and all my hairs abandoned all my body all my agony. Know that I will never marry. Baby I'm just soggy from the chemo. I'm counting down the days to go. It just ain't living and I just hope you know that if you say goodbye today I'd ask you to be true cause the hardest part of this is leaving you" -Cancer, My Chemical Romance

Can You Feel The Love Tonight

There's a time for everyone
If they'd only learn
That the twisting Kaleidoscope
Moves us all in turn

There's a rhyme and reason
To the wild outdoors
When the heart of this restless warrior
Beats in time with yours

CasChat: Marillion : Childhood's End ?


And it was morning.
And I found myself mourning,
for a childhood that I thought had disappeared.

I looked out the window,
And I saw a magpie in the rainbow, the rain had gone
I'm not alone, I turned to the mirror,
I saw you, the child, that once loved.
The child before they broke his heart,
Our heart, the heart that I believed was lost.

Hey you, surprised? More than surprised,
To find the answers to the questions,
Were always in your own eyes.

Do you realize that you give it on back to her?
But that would only be retraced in all the problems that you ever knew,
So untrue.

For she's got to carry on with her life,
and you've got to carry on with yours.
So I see it's me, I can do anything
And still the child,
Cause the only thing misplaced was direction
And I found direction.

There is no Childhood's End.
There is no Childhood's End.
Cause' you are my childhood friend.
Cause' you are my childhood friend.
Oh lead me on.

Hey you, you've survived.
Now you've arrived,
To be reborn in the shadow of the magpie.
Now you realize, that you've got to get out of here.
You've found the leading light of destiny,
Burning in the ashes of your memory.

You want to change the world.
You'd resigned yourself to die a broken rebel,
But that was looking backward.
Now you've found the light.

You, the child that once loved,
The child before they broke his heart.
The heart, the heart that I believed was lost
So it's me I see, I can do anything.
I'm still the child.

Cause the only thing misplaced was direction, and I found direction.
There is no childhood's end.
There is no childhood's end.
There is no childhood's end.
I am your childhood friend.

Oh... lead me on.

Painted_Turtle_1970: Both Sides Now
Joni Mitchell
Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all
Moons and Junes and ferries wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way
But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away
I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all
Tears and fears and feeling proud,
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way
But now old friends they're acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day.
I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

Painted_Turtle_1970: The Wrong Direction
Passenger
When I was a kid the things I did were hidden under the grid
Young and naive I never believed that love could be so well hid
dWith regret I'm willing to bet and say the older you get
It gets harder to forgive and harder to forget
It gets under your shirt like a dagger at work
The first cut is the deepest but the rest still flipping hurt
You build your heart of plastic
Get cynical and sarcastic
And end up in the corner on your own
'Cause I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction oh no
So what's the point in getting your hopes up
When all you're ever getting is choked up
When you're coked up
And can't remember the reason why you broke up
You call her in the morning
When you're coming down and falling like an old man on the side of the road
'Cause when you're apart you don't want to mingle
When you're together you want to be single
Ever the chase to taste the kiss of bliss
That made your heart tingle
How much greener the grass is
With those rose tinted glasses
But the butterflies they flutter by and leave us on our arses
'Cause I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction
There's fish in the sea for me to make a selection
I'd jump in if it wasn't for my ear infection
Cause all I want to do is try to make a connection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction oh oh
Oh I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction
I'd love to feel love but I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
I thought I was close but under further inspection
It seems I've been running in the wrong direction oh
It seems like I'm running in the wrong direction oh
Seems like I'm running in the wrong direction oh
Well it seems I've been running in the wrong direction oh no
Seems I've been running in the wrong direction

sensus fail
sensus fail: I've gotta keep the calm before the storm
I don't want less, I don't want more
Must bar the windows and the doors
To keep me safe, to keep me warm
Yeah, my life is what I'm fighting for
Can't part the sea, can't reach the shore
And my voice becomes the driving force
I won't let this pull me overboard
God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don't let me drown, drown, drown
Don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown
So pull me up from down below
'Cause I'm underneath the undertow
Come dry me off and hold me close
I need you now, I need you most
God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don't let me drown, drown, drown
Don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown
Don't let me drown, drown, drown
Keep my head above water, above water
And I can't see in the stormy weather
I can't seem to keep it all together
And I, I can't swim the ocean like this forever
And I can't breathe
God, keep my head above water
I lose my breath at the bottom
Come rescue me, I'll be waiting
I'm too young to fall asleep
God, keep my head above water
Don't let me drown, it gets harder
I'll meet you there at the altar
As I fall down to my knees

Painted_Turtle_1970: That I Would Be Good
Alanis Morissette
That I would be good even if I did nothing
That I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
That I would be good if I got and stayed sick
That I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
That I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great if I was no longer queen
That I would be grand if I was not all knowing
That I would be loved even when I numb myself
That I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
That I would be loved even when I was fuming
That I would be good even if I was clingy
That I would be good even if I lost sanity
That I would be good
Whether with or without you

Painted_Turtle_1970: Lens
Alanis Morissette
You and I are in the same room
We both think we're fair
We both live for truths
But then how are we to define something so subjective
Living under the same roof
So here these battles of wills
They beg for some proof
Of right versus wrong
Your approach seems better than mine
Though it's working for you all I feel is disconnection
So now it's your (your) religion 'gainst my (my) religion
My humble opinion 'gainst yours
This does not feel like love
It's your (your) conviction 'gainst my (my) conviction
And I'd like to know what we've seen
Through the lens of love, love, love, love
And so now your grand assessment is that I'm not in your group that I'm not your kind
And so we're locked in a stalemate with you in your corner and me dismayed in mine
So now it's your (your) religion 'gainst my (my) religion
My humble opinion 'gainst yours
This does not feel like love
It's your (your) conviction 'gainst my (my) conviction
And I'd like to know what we've seen
Through the lens of love, love, love, love
And this stance keeps us locked in biophilias
And this lie remains about us being separate
So now it's your (your) religion 'gainst my (my) religion
My humble opinion 'gainst yours
This does not feel like love
It's your (your) conviction 'gainst my (my) conviction
And I'd like to know what we've seen
Through the lens of love, love, love, love

sensus fail
sensus fail: Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence
"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
In the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed its warning,
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

sensus fail: Road to Nowhere Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Tired and lonely, still we stand
On a road to nowhere
Trapped in a world of endless days
My engine's stalling (Road to nowhere)
Body and mind are breaking down
On a road to nowhere
Destiny silent, hear no sound
As away forever

[Chorus]
Farewell, I miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes
Because it tore us apart, right from the start
I miss you

[Verse 2]
Feelings that filled me left me cold
On this road to nowhere (Road to nowhere)
Dreams are my saviors, save me now
Because I know I'm falling (Oh yeah)

[Chorus]
Farewell, I miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes
Because it tore us apart, right from the start

Candles burn slowly, flames shine so brightly
Light in the darkness, save me from madness again
Only the lonely, can possibly know me
Heat keeps on rising, fire engulfs me again
Keeps on rising

[Chorus]
Farewell, I miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes (Sick of these goodbyes)
Because it tore us apart, right from the start
I miss you

[Chorus]
Farewell, I miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes
Because it tore us apart, right from the start (right from the start)

I'm not rattled 'cause I'd shattered all of this before (this before)
Steadier than steel 'cause I'm ready with my shield and sword (shield and sword)
Back on the saddel 'cause I gotta get on my strength for more (strength for more)

No, I'm not afraid of you whatever it takes
I'll never bow, I'll never break

I'll be marching through the darkness 'til the morning light (morning light)
Even when it's harder like the armor you will see me shine (see me shine)
I won't stop and I won't drop 'till the victory's mine ()victory's mine)

You can't stop me now

Oh, they tried to break me down
They tried to take me out
You can't cut a scar on me

All through the night
And I won't give up, I will survive

Painted_Turtle_1970: Too Close
Alex Clare
You know I'm not one to break promises
I don't want to hurt you but I need to breathe
At the end of it all you're still my best friend
But there's something inside that I need to release
Which way is right?
Which way is wrong?
How do I say that I need to move on?
You know we're heading separate ways
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can lie no more
I can hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way
You've given me more than I can return
Yet there's oh so much you deserve
Nothing to say
Nothing to do
I've nothing to give
I must live without you
You know we're heading separate ways
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can lie no more
I can hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
There's nothing I can really say
I can lie no more
I can hide no more
Got to be true to myself
And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way
So I'll be on my way
