Dear Jack

Original and similar lyrics
Dear Jack, I'll write you as a friend Dear friend, I fear the end is coming soon To you it's not so clear It's clear to me It's clear as glass Dear Jack, Dear Jack, Dear Jack, Dear Hope Attach it to the end of your rope A rope that wove ambition in with sorrow Distancing tomorrow, tomorrow's come and past. Dear Jack, Dear Jack You were the fighter I was the kid against the world I heard there's nothing gonna hold you down I'll use a lighter so you can see what isn't there We'll swing at air Swinging off eventually you're bound Bound to the ground Dear Jack Wherever you are hold tight Wherever he is shine light right there Be strong I dare I know it's hard I will wait I will wait, yeah. You were the fighter I was the kid against the world I heard there's nothing gonna hold you down I'll use a lighter so you can see what isn't there We'll swing at air Swinging off eventually you're bound Bound to the ground I, I had songs for you I had all your music written out The words came when I heard you screaming I, I, I, I had plans for you Until the plans fell through Now there is no turning back my dear Jack You were the fighter I was the kid against the world I heard there's nothing gonna hold you down I'll use a lighter so you can see what isn't there We'll swing at air Swinging off eventually you're bound You're bound to the ground And oh, oh, oh We're bound to the ground Bound to the ground We're bound to the ground

Drunkship Of Lanterns

THE MARS VOLTA "De-Loused In The Comatorium"
You've got the lot to burn A shelve of pig smotherd cries Is there a spirit that spits Upon the exit of signs Is anybody there? These steps keep on growing long Bayonet trials rust propellers await No, nobody is heard Rowing sheep smiles for the dead Nobody is heard An antiquated home Afloat with engines on mute Sui generis ship spined around the yard Is anybody there? These craft only multiply At the nape of ruins rust propellers await No, nobody is heard compass wilting in the wind Nobody is heard Rowing sheep smile for the dead Tansoceanic depth in this earth In this cenotaph Lash of one thousand eye brows clicking Counting the toll Counting the toll You've got the lot to burn A shelve of pig smothered cries Is there a spirit that spits upon the exit of signs Is anybody there? These steps keep on growing long Bayonet trials rust propellers await No, nobody is heard compass wilting in the wind Nobody is heard rowing sheep smile for the dead Transoceanic depth in this earth in this cenotaph Carpel jets hit the ground Carpel jets hit the ground Carpel jets hit the ground Carpel jets hit the ground Lash of one thousand eyebrows clicking Counting the toll Counting the toll Lash of one thousand eyebrows clicking Counting the toll Counting the toll

Music Never Sleeps

JASON CHEN "Gravity"
From the start I thought I knew What I was searching for Never thought things would come around It get so hard when people talking steady, mocking And it hurts when they knock you down All my life I've just been Wandering around aimlessly Always stuck in the background (always stuck in the background) Am I cool enough? Why do they point a laugh at me? Always trying to please the crowd Through the darkest time you were my light With me right through all the sleepless nights Even if this is all just a fantasy No I'll never give up the fight (never give up the fight) If they try to hold me down And kick me to the ground I'll get back up every day every night My love runs deep and music never sleeps tonight So many times I wanna runaway, so far away (yea) Away from all the pain inside (hmm yea) So insecure, broken and torn like paper blowing Never knowing which way I'll fly (No-oh) Through the darkest time you were my light (woah) With me right through all the sleepless night (through all) Even if this is all just a fantasy No I'll never give up the fight (never give up the fight) If they try to hold me down (try to hold me down) And kick me to the ground (kick me to the ground) I'll get back up every day every night My love runs deep and music never sleeps tonight Every second every minute every hour I Think of how you came right in and change my life No more running, hiding, chasing someone else's dreams I'm going harder pushing forward Now we got no time to sleep If they try to hold me down (try to hold me down) And kick me to the ground (ground) I'll get back up every day every night My love runs deep (my love runs deep) And music never sleeps tonight If they try to hold me down (try to hold me down) And kick me to the ground (kick me to the ground) I'll get back up every day every night My love runs deep (my love runs deep) and music never sleeps tonight

Texas Bound And Flyin'

JERRY REED "Texas Bound And Flyin'"
Well if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down then I'll be Texas bound and aflyin' Ive got my 10 in the wind let it all hang out again Cause how're you gonna win if you ain't trying Well now we're all back together and we're burnin' up the road and that old sheriff's doggin' us today He thinks he's really got it cookin' plans to do a lot of bookin' only trouble he keeps lookin' where we've already been! So if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down then I'll be Texas bound and aflyin' Well if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down then I'll be Texas bound and aflyin' Ive got my 10 in the wind let it all hang out again Cause how're you gonna win if you ain't trying Now 'Smokey and the Bandit' is a tale you don't forget everytime you time your hear an engine scream and whine You have to think about ol' Bandit, ol' Buford, Frog, and Fred, and Snowman Their story is a legend that will live on in time! So if I can keep it on the ground when I put that hammer down then I'll be Texas bound and aflyin'

Get Up Jack

JOAN OSBORNE "Early Recordings"
Get up Jack, crack your head Sweatin' whiskey in my bed Ain't you heard a word I've said Get up Jack Get up Jack, read the news See if you can tie your shoes Find another friend to use Get up Jack CHORUS And come down, come down Long enough to see my face Come down, come down Get up Jack, run and hide Tell us all how hard you tried Burn your bridges, drown your pride Get up Jack Get up Jack, crack your head Been so long since I fed You ain't heard a word I've said Get up Jack REPEAT CHORUS If I came in a bottle... It was a mighty good year How come I don't get you high How come you're still here God, you were so beautiful I used to watch you sleep God, God so beautiful Too much promise to keep Get up Jack, go to hell Baby I can taste the smell Wish I didn't, truth to tell Know you, know you so damn well Get up Jack

Murder

Alana Davis "Blame It On Me"
I think I might have heard some screaming I might have heard somebody cry Now I wonder am I dreaming or is my mind telling me a lie Well I can't run any further and I can't hide anymore And I think there's been a murder up on the ground floor There's a boa in my bathroom and he's coiling in my sink He wants my cats I think Paranoia in my house and I'm balanced on the brink And I can't run any further and I can't hide anymore 'Cause I think there's been a murder up on the ground floor I'm living in a basement flat in a quiet part of town I bet you wonder where my head is at when I'm imagining all these sounds I'd check it out but I'm glued to my chair I can't make it to the door I could be bugging but I'd gladly swear I just heard a body hit the floor And I can't run any further I can't hide, I can't hide anymore And I think there's been a murder up above me on the ground On the ground floor
