TORI AMOS lyrics - To Venus And Back

Concertina

Original and similar lyrics
Clouds descending I'm not policing what you think and dream I run into your thought from across the room Just another trick Can I weather this I've got a fever above my waist You got a squeeze box on your knee I know the truth is in between the 1st and 40th drink Concertina Concertina A chill that bends this I swear you're the fiecest calm I've been in Concertina Concertina Try infrared This I swear You're the fiercest calm I"ve been in the Soul-quake happened here In a glass word Particle by particle She slowly changes She likes hanging Chinese paper cuts Just another fix Can I weather this I got my fuzz all tipped to play I got a dub on your landscape Then there's your policy of tracing The source without the blame Too far too far too far It could all get way too cheerful Concertina I know the truth lies in between the 1st and the 40th drink Clouds descending

Drink Me

ANNA NALICK "Wreck Of The Day"
Talk about the weather Will you miss me ever? Lately I'm obsessed And I need the rest I hope that you're impressed She's so pretty, I'm jealous And she's lost like Alice In a painted past In a looking glass I see me looking back I'll take another Drink Me, baby Slowly, I'll disappear And wear my life like a barbed wire necklace So let's play it truth or dare So you're a fan of Coltrane I wanna be Kurt Cobain When the truth gets scary I'll take my gin and sherry And some Drink Me they'll be Plath and Joplin with verse writing suiciders Kennedy and Monroe come to see my rock show I'll be there in the front row I'll take another Drink Me, baby Slowly, I'll disappear And wear my life like a barbed wire necklace So let's play truth or dare And I won't be around to play your games There will come a day when you won't know my name And I'll get smaller with Every swallow you'll Wait tomorrow and things won't be the same Talk about the weather Will you miss me ever? Lately I'm obsessed And I need the rest I hope that you're impressed Cuz I need the rest Yeah my head's a mess I need the rest I need the rest I need the rest

New South Wales

JASON ISBELL "Southeastern"
Here we sit Across the table from each other A thousand miles from both our mothers Barely old enough to rust Here we sit Pretending both our hearts are anchors Taking candy from these strangers Amidst the diesel and the dust And here we sit Singing words nobody taught us Drinking fire, and spitting sawdust Trying to teach ourselves to breathe We haven't yet But every chorus brings us closer Every flyer and every poster Gives a piece of what we need And the sand that they call cocaine cost you twice as much as gold You'd be better off to drink your coffee black But I swear, the land it listened to the stories that we told God bless the busted boat that brings us back Morning's rough It don't give a damn about the mission Has no aesthetic or tradition Only lessons never learned And I'd had enough About a month ago tomorrow Parting holds no trace of sorrow For the bitter and the burned And the piss they call tequila even Waylon wouldn't drink Well I'd rather sip this Listerine I packed But I swear, we've never seen a better place to sit and think God bless the busted ship that brings us back And the sand that they call cocaine cost you twice as much as gold You'd be better off to drink your coffee black But I swear, the land it listened to the stories that we told God bless the busted boat that brings us back

Better Weather

ALIEN ANT FARM "Always And Forever"
The clouds have slowly come over us They shield no sun above us The light on me you will supply The shine on me you will provide It ain't so bad we can make up Heavy clouds always break up It don't matter I wish you better weather anyway And if the sun doesn't break through And there's no where to run to We can hang around this better weather all the way The weatherman always says so, But there's one thing we both know Gotta be better weather than yesterday I know things will get better Better than the weather And now your the shine on me Its not as dark as it used to be Giving me the light I need You cut shadows with a sun ray And slice hope for a new day A lightning rod can shock the sky I'm hoping you'll recharge my life It ain't so bad we can make up Heavy clouds always break up It don't matter I wish you better weather anyway And if the sun doesn't break through And there's no where to run to We can hang around this better weather all the way The weatherman always says so, But there's one thing we both know Gotta be better weather than yesterday I know things will get better Better than the weather Rain is storming all over you Every time I feel a cold chill Stormy rain and weather balloons Storm is coming, we'll rise above it Clouds ain't as dark as they seem to be Storm is coming, we'll rise above it It ain't so bad we can make up Heavy clouds always break up It don't matter I wish you better weather anyway And if the sun doesn't break through And there's no where to run to We can hang around this better weather all the way The weatherman always says so, But there's one thing we both know Gotta be better weather than yesterday I know things will get better Better than the weather

Move On Song

JAMIE CULLUM
Pictures that I can't throw away One life, tattooed It's been several months and a day Since we were referred to, as me and you Even though your heart has gone dry You won't deny me my dreams At least that's what it seems Now that you're gone I had to write this move on song Just for me ... So I could figure where it went wrong I channelled the soul of Elton John The tea's gone cold and salty with tears My friends beckon me out, for comeback beers The truth be known like summer lawn I've always been drawn to the clouds Where I'll sit for hours Now that you're gone I had to write this move on song Just for me ... I resent you being a bitch Self-preservation, oh, that little trick I even had the guts to call time On a wounded while and ragged rhymes The truth be known like summer lawn I've always been drawn to the clouds Where I'll sit for hours Now that you're gone I had to write this move on song Just for me ... Right now Love's gonna make me slam my fist right through the door It's time now To scatter myself in all those pieces on the floor To serve me up some shots of my words A joke on the lessons I've learned That darkens my world Now that you're gone I had to write this move on song Just for me ...

Creation Or A Stain

JOSEPH ARTHUR "Come To Where I'm From"
I got a god in my head Tells me that I'm crazy Got a god in my head Telling me I'm crazy An angry little god punching on my skull Another little god Tells me that I'm lazy A useless piece of shit with no love to give at all now And the smallest god up there Thinks that I'm the greatest Tells me no one else could be as good as me. I listen to them all, I was a disc jockey to consequences Little propagandist selling misery I build a cocoon I got to get away A shirt made out of wood and glue and crack and then some paint(????) No one see ya down there and no one's getting in I got a needle, a pack, a satchel, and a quart of country gin I drink and shoot and smoke until the only voice I hear Is the one telling me those other people, don't let anybody near No don't let anybody near (x4) And now the telephone is ringing, the walls are falling down The city birds are singing, my soul's nowhere around I have made myself a monster I have damned myself again I have eaten all my children, I have tightened up my skin I'm a walking crucifixion, I'm a fucked-up memory Consumed in all that's left, I'm my mother's misery I'm sucking on Satan's tit She's milking me her pussy flower I drink until I'm convinced there's no place left to go You know there's no place left to go (x4) So I drink until the pain is dry I know it never is Sometimes though, I guess I think that I'm the best Until the morning after when I wake up with the guilt Of burning down all the things my sacred hands have built And throwing out all the love you know I never felt Yeah, you know I never felt (x4) Let's make our tortured Romeo's Personal help can be unique You bring it on yourself Burn out when you might peak The Holy Ghost is exiled from your heart and from your soul If you control it it's no fun, and if it's fun you've lost control Your past is plagiarism your symbols have dried up Your corruption's as confused As old lovers that you dug Like some hidden toxic fume Your soul dissipates In the ozone of guilty acts with motive All the things you hate There's bodies dancing, crazed Sexual heat Crazy in an orgy The way starving people eat Regrets weight overwhelms, and tired bodies fall Bankrupt from the beaten Let's split one more eight-ball Blue as beggars, beaten, bleeding Tired eyes made of rust And we all know when it gets like this there's no one you can trust No no there's no one you can trust(x4) Some say the solution's locked in the sweat-box I wouldn't know I've never been there, I sold my keys to get a rock We sing along to forgotten AM radio stations And drink expensive wine, toast the friends that we left hanging Like prisoners in conceit We heard through the cracks I know for sure don't trust no one who says' they've got you back The windows all explode Outside the noise pollution booms Everyone's now hidden like cockroaches in dark rooms I've been brought back from the dead before, so anything can happen Obsessed with tragic antics, down and out like Eric Clapton These are my wild years, I'm trying to enjoy the pain The euphoria of dying Toxins wrestle in my brain We've all been leaders of corruption We've all been spiders on the wall Waiting for a hand to smash us or the doom of light to fall Is this guilt of just self-hatred Runnin' wild, uncontained Leaking from a broken soul Is this creation or a stain Is this creation or a stain...
