Original and similar lyrics
In the middle of the night I was sleeping sitting up, when a doctor came to tell me, "Enough is enough." He brought me out into the hall I could have sworn it was haunted, and told me something that I didn't know that I wanted to hear: That there was nothing that I could do to save you, the choirs gonna sing, and this thing is gonna kill you. Something in my throat made my next words shake, and something in the wires made the light bulbs break. There was glass inside my feet and raining down from the ceiling, it opened up the scars that had just finished healing. It tore apart the canyon running down your femur, I though that it was beautiful, it made me a believer. And as it opened I could hear you howling from your room, but I hid out in the hall until the hurricane blew. When I reappeared and tried to give you something for the pain you came to hating me again, and just sang your refrain: You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare. You were just a little kid, and they cut your hair, then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying. They should have listened, they thought that you were lying. Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up, build the gears in your head, now he greases them up. And no one paid attention when you just stopped eating. "Eighty seven pounds!" and this all bears repeating. Tell me when you think that we became so unhappy, wearing silver rings with nobody clapping. When we moved here together we were so disappointed, sleeping out of tune with our dreams disjointed. It killed me to see you getting always rejected, but I didn't mind the things you threw, the phones I deflected. I didn't mind you blaming me for your mistakes, I just held you in the door frame through all of the earthquakes. But you packed up your clothes in that bag every night. I would try to grab your ankles, what a pitiful sight. But after over a year, I stopped trying to stop you from stomping out that door, coming back like you always do. Well no one's gonna fix it for us, no one can. You say that no one's gonna listen, no one understands. So there's no open doors, and there's no way to get though, there's no other witnesses, just us two. There's two people living in one small room, from your two half-families tearing at you, two ways to tell the story, no one worries, two silver rings on our fingers in a hurry, two people talking inside your brain, two people believing that I'm the one to blame, two different voices coming out of your mouth, while I'm too cold to care and too sick to shout. You had a new dream, it was more like a nightmare. You were just a little kid, and they cut your hair, then they stuck you in machines, you came so close to dying. They should have listened, they thought that you were lying. Daddy was an asshole, he fucked you up, build the gears in your head, now he greases them up. And no one paid attention when you just stopped eating. "Eighty seven pounds!" and this all bears repeating.

Good Night

MICK JENKINS
So, I figure I should tell you a little bit about myself Since you don't really know, anything, about much at all, that's what I'll do Gather round children I grew up round them white kids first, Paranoid like a crack head A blemish in they world, yea, I was just a black head Proactive, they put me with them smarter kids, I didn't care I was just mad that I was the darkest kid with thick hair And they stared, like I was not suppose to be in there I grew up, mama living like Kadeisha and miss Sinclair That's single, she didn't like to mingle with her kids there And when they tried to woo we brought the Whoo! like Rick Flair No chin hair, what was I eleven nigga? And that's when you decided that yo kids would come second nigga? Just barely walking and you still just kept it stepping nigga? Now that's some sick shit, what is you a leper nigga? See that's the type of shit that make not respect a nigga Just know the debt you owe is looking real hefty nigga Nah, I ain't mad, I just said that for the record nigga Nah, I ain't mad I just said that for the record nigga But I digress and reminisce on days after he left us When honey buns and flaming hots was healthy breakfast When micros and kinky twists gave hell to edges And them girls in your class started wearing heels and wedges, ahhhh Sounds good don't it? I know somebody out there like "it sound hood homie" But the hood was all we had, and we made good from it Especially them D-boys, I know they made good money Made good dummies, start selling that wet work Cause we see them stacking paper like cubical desk work They see through like wet shirts They grandmamma chest hurt Her heartbroken, cause the streets done got up in 'em They rocked the uniform: white tee, 5 pocket denim Nikes, no clocking in But they working that nine to five High key they don't know better, buy trees And go and choke like rabbit first time at the shelter, I see A people stuck in they ways, no it's not just a phase They see a future in tomorrow, they are stuck in a daze And I am fucking amazed At how these wack niggas spit the way they Dunkin is glazed See that's sweet nigga But I got it hot and ready for the street nigga Your soul starving, so I prepared you a feast nigga So get them headphones to your ears, and eat nigga I'm vegetarian, but it is full of meat nigga I'm trying to take it cross country, track meet nigga Then hit the mall like I'm hitting athlete figures I actually figured, that I'd be harder than this I'm just warming up, but they say that I'm sautering this I think I'm fathering this, my seed come through the pen I'm trying to bust in another life I ain't fucking no bitch And I can't fuck with no snitch Keep my name out your fucking mouth Unless you talking bout me, or sucking this dick, aww I try to let this beat fade like newly washed denim But got on my Scrappy Doo, just "let me back at 'em " I'm trying to know this game, just (uh), let me back catch 'em Just let me direct 'em, like traffic lights And I'm a take 'em higher, much higher than your average flight And give 'em mouthfuls much bigger than your biggest bite And show 'em how I'm much flyer than your average kite And now they grabbing tight But I'm just picking them off me Writing these death certificates, Killing them softly

Poem: Ghost

EMILIE AUTUMN "Opheliac"
Ghost, Did you know sometimes it frightens me when you say my name and I can't see you will you ever learn to materialize before you speak impetuous boy, if that's what you really are how many centuries since you've climbed a balcony or do you do this every night with someone else you tell me that you never leave and I am almost afraid to believe it why is it me you've chosen to follow did you like the way I look when I am sleeping was my hair more fun to tangle are my dreams more entertaining do you laugh when I'm complaining that I'm all alone where were you when I searched the sea for a friend to talk to me in a year where will you be is it enough for you to steal into my mind filling up my page with music written in my hand you know I'll take the credit for I must have made you come to me somehow but please try to close the curtains when you leave at night or I'll have to find someone to stay and warm me will you always attend my midnight tea parties as long as I set your place if one day your sugar sits untouched will you have gone forever would you miss me in a thousand years when you will dry another's tears but you say you'll never leave me and I wonder if you'll have the decency to pass through my wall to the next room while I dress for dinner but when I'm stuck in conversation with stuffed shirts whose adoration hurts my ears, where are you then can't you cut in when I dance with other men it's too late not to interfere with my life you've already made me a most unsuitable wife for any man who wants to be the first his bride has slept with and you can't just fly into people's bedrooms then expect them to calmly wave goodbye you've changed the course of history and didn't even try where are you now standing behind me taking my hand come and remind me who you are have you traveled far are you made of stardust too are the angels after you tell me what I am to do but until then I'll save your side of the bed just come and sing me to sleep

Til Youre Dead

Melissa Ferrick
I'm thinking that you got some sort of hold on me It's making me crazy Making me crazy N' I know my life it is sort of out of control But you know my mind goes faster Than any car on the road 'Cause I thought love was hard So I tried with all my might 'N I thought love lasted So I always stayed the night Now I'm in your chair And you are talking to me I can see your lips moving But I don't hear a thing So pay attention I said To my aching head You know this is it you fool You're gonna be with this one 'Til you're dead So I'm taking a walk Down to my favorite coffee shop Sit down in the corner And try to write down my thoughts But all my thoughts are jumbled Into some crazy state of grade And well what I do but soothe it With a picture of your face 'Cause I thought love was hard So I tried with all my might 'N I thought love lasted So I always stayed the night Now I'm in your chair And you talking to me I can see your lips moving But I don't hear a thing So pay attention I said To my aching head You know this is it you fool You're gonna be with this one 'Til you're dead And I am thinking Oh my God You know how can this be I have been waiting so long For a love to be And I know that I just talk too much But tell me Tell me baby Don't look good enough for ya baby Am I looking good enough for ya baby 'Cause I though love was hard So I tried with all my might 'N I thought love lasted So I always stayed the night Now I'm in your chair And you are talking to me I can see your lips moving But I don't hear a thing So pay attention I said To my aching head You know this is it you fool You're gonna be with this 'Til you're dead
