I Know You (Spoken Word)

Henry Rollins
I Know You I know you you were too short you had bad skin you couldn't talk to them very well words didn't seem to work they lied when they came out of your mouth you tried so hard to understand them you wanted to be part of what was happening you saw them having fun and it seemed like such a mystery almost magic made you think that there was something wrong with you you'd look in the mirror trying to find it you thought that you were ugly and that everyone was looking at you so you learned to be invisible to look down to avoid conversation the hours days weekends ah the weekend nights, alone where were you in the basement? in the attic? in your room? working some job? just to have something to do just to have a place to put yourself just to have a way to get away from them a chance to get away from the ones that made you feel so strange and ill-at-ease inside yourself did you ever get invited to one of their parties you sat and wondered if you would go or not for hours you imagined the scenarios that might transpire they would laugh at you if you would know what to do if you would have the right things on if they would notice that you came from a different planet did you get all brave in your thoughts like you were going to be able to go in there and deal with it and have a great time did you think that you might be 'the life of the party' that all these people were gonna talk to you and you would find out that you were wrong that you had a lot of friends and you weren't so strange after all? did you end up going did they mess with you did they single you out did you find out that you were invited because they thought you were so weird yeah, I think I know you you spent a lot of time full of hate a hate that was pure as sunshine a hate that saw for miles a hate that kept you up at night a hate that filled your every waking moment a hate that carried you for a long time yes I think I know you you couldn't figure out what they saw and the way they lived home was not home your room was home a corner was home the place they weren't- that was home I know you you're sensitive and you hide it, because you fear getting stepped on one more time it seems that when you show a part of yourself that is the least bit vulnerable someone takes advantage of you one of them steps on you they mistake kindness for weakness but you know the difference you've been the brunt of their weakness for years and strength is something you know a bit about because you had to be strong to keep yourself alive you know yourself very well now and you don't trust people you know them too well you try to find that 'special person' someone you can be with someone you can touch someone you can talk to someone you won't feel so strange around and you found that they don't really exist you feel closer to people on movie screens yeah, I think I know you you spend a lot of time daydreaming and people have made comment to that effect telling you that you're 'self-involved' and 'self-centered' but they don't know, do they about the long nightshifts alone about the years of keeping yourself company all the nights you wrapped your arms around yourself so you could imagine someone holding you the hours of indecision self-doubt the intense depression the blinding hate the rage that made you stagger the devastation of rejection well maybe they do know but if they do they sure do a good job of hiding it it astounds you how they can be so smooth how they seem to pass through life as if life itself was some divine gift and it infuriates you to watch yourself with your apparent skill, and finding every way possible to screw it up for you, life is a long trip terrifying and wonderful birds sing to you at night the rain and the sun the changing seasons are true friends solitude is a hard won ally faithful and patient yeah, I think I know you

All Day Watcher

GOLDEN EARRING "Together"
From the Album: * Together Well in a few more hours, and millions of people hate their alarm clock, even more than their wives The day is beginning, you can tell by the sunrise People get ready for a day in their lives They're getting together, in the streets of the cities Like lost computers of a shattered tribe They're all in a hurry, to be in time some for promotion, some to stay alive Yeah, yeah I'm the all day watcher, that's all I do I'm the all day watcher, I'm watching you Well I shake my head and I shake my brain And I don't understand why they're all the same I weigh pro's and con's, against their lives and mine But I don't know, it's beyond my frame of mind Beyond my frame of mind, yeah Oeh, in a few more minutes, and millions of people hear the whistle of freedom, blowing through their head They push and they hurry and the herd starts moving they follow the trail back home again Where they're taking it easy, with a box of beer Watching the late late show on color TV and life ain't easy, when you're livin' that way But sometimes I wonder, maybe it's fun everyday Yeah, yeah

The Captain And The Kid

ELTON JOHN "The Captain And The Kid"
I've been out on this road some Can't help feeling I've been showing my friends around I've seen it growing from next to nothing Into a giant eating up your town Called up the tealeaves and the tarots Asked the gypsy what she sees in the palm of our hands She saw a mountain and wild deer running A crazy kid becoming a better man But we stuck around for the fireworks Waiting to explode Shaped our futures, you a tumbleweed And me on a yellow brick road Pleasing the people some of the time For better or for worse An urban soul in a fine silk Suit And a heart out west in a Wrangler shirt [Chorus:] And you can't go back and if you try it fails Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale" And that's what we did No lies at all just one more tale About the Captain and the Kid We've been missing at times in action Can't imagine what he said he might do for you The devil got to come to the party sometimes But he never got to wear our shoes Oh we've conjured up what we created Way back then when I was standing up in six-inch heels Now you're riding off into the sunset And I'm still spinning like a Catherine wheel But we stuck around for the battle Waiting for a plan To turn you into the Brown Dirt Cowboy And me into a rocket man It pleases the people some of the time Digging into our roots But I got a brand new pair of shoes And you're on a horse in old cowboy boots [Chorus 2x]
