Astronaut: A Short History Of Nearly Nothing

AMANDA PALMER "Who Killed Amanda Palmer"
Is it enough to have some love Small enough to slip inside a book. Small enough to cover with your hand Because everyone around you wants to look Is it enough to have some love Small enough to fit inside the cracks The pieces don't fit together so good With all the breaking and all the gluing back And I am still not getting what I want I want to touch the back of your right arm I wish you could remind me who I was Because every day I'm a little further off But you are, my love, the astronaut Flying in the face of science I will gladly stay an afterthought Just bring back some nice reminders And is it getting harder to pretend That life goes on without you in the wake? And can you see the means without the end In the random frantic action that we take? And is it getting easy not to care Despite the many rings around your name It isn't funny and it isn't fair You've traveled all this way and it's the same But you are, my love, the astronaut Flying in the face of science I will gladly stay an afterthought Just bring back some nice reminders I would tell them anything to see you split the evening But as you see I do not have an awful lot to tell Everybody's sick for something that they can find fascinating Everyone but you and even you aren't feeling well Yes you are, my love, the astronaut Crashing in the name of science Just my luck they found your upper half It's a very nice reminder It's a very nice reminder And you may be acquainted with the night But I have seen the darkness in the day And you must know it is a terrifying sight Because you and I are living the same way

I Love Ladies

ICE-T "Rhyme Pays"
Ya heard the Ice was rockin', ticket sales were high Bought some fresh Adidas so you could look fly Broke out from your crib rushin' to get here Tripped ans stumbled almost broke your neck comin' down the stairs Jumped into your ride, pushed the speed to the limit Jumped out of your car faster than you jumped in it Now you're at the jam but in for a shock Stupid big line wrapped around the block Through the walls of the hall you could hear me rhyme Methodically you schemed a way to cut in line But when you got inside the sight straightened your curls Cause as you look around all you could see were girls I love ladies I think it's time that I tell the truth I been dissin' females since my early youth But you know that's a drag and there's no doubt Cause females are the one thing that I can't do without Female companionship is my one vice I love to buy the girls things, love to treat em real nice Homeboys you must admit the best part of each day Is when a beautiful lady comes walkin' your way Females possess that one commodity that no man will ever have Not that hangs around me They got it, we want it, they move it, and flaunt it They shake it and sway it, we'll die just to lay it We try to supress it until they undress it And beg 'em to use it, and cry not to lose it No man can deny it so don't even try it!!! I love ladies Ladies are you with me (Yeeaahh!!) I Love Ladies Ladies are you with me (Yeeaahh!!) That sounds nice (You know we love you Ice!!) I'm junkie for females and that's a fact I'm not into havin' my homeboys rubbin' my back Don't dig goin' to the movies alone Or talkin' to myself on the telephone Goin' to a disco that's packed with men That's like tryin' to get a dance in the federal pen Walkin' through a park with a gang of the guys And a beach full of fellas never opened my eyes And man if females are one thing that you don't need You better get away from me at a high rate of speed Cause if you don't like them you must like men And homeboy that's where our serious problems begin Because to me women are God's true gift There's absolutely no question who I'd rather be with I love ladies I seen this fly girl walkin' down the street Jammin' a box rockin' to the beat The girl looked pretty, she really looked nice So I said to myself she's got to be with the Ice Walked over to her, started sayin' my rhyme She said 'Ice you're so bad, you damn near blew my mind' I kept on rappin', runnin' my mouth The next thing I knew I was at her house Looked at her closely, said for goodness sake The girl was cut like a diamond, had curves like a snake Her top half was heaven, the bottom was the hell I knew tonight that the Ice was gonna rock well But then she started talkin' mess about love and romance Until she noticed the bulge growin' in my pants You should'a seen the girl's eyes as my body expanded She grabbed for my leg, raw sex she demanded My knees started knockin', I tried to run She said 'Please don't leave Ice, I want you to come' This girl meant business I had no doubt This is just about the time that the Ice passed out The next day I woke the girl was through Room still smokin', my legs black and blue My eyes bloodshot, my hair pressed straight My knees still knockin', I knew I lost weight She was the best y'all, yes on this earth I would'a paid a million dollars, that's what it was worth If I had got her name or number it would'a been nice But I'm here to let you know the girl went off on the Ice I love ladies Ladies are you with me (Yeeaahh!!) I Love Ladies Ladies are you with me (Yeeaahh!!) That sounds nice (You know we love you Ice!!) No when it comes to partyin' the ladies know how When I ask for a reply they always scream owww!! It's the homeboys always tryin' to act real chill Sometimes it's jealous MC's mad cause they ain't on the bill Maybe they scared if they say ho! They might lose their cool But I got some news for you: a fool's a fool But don't get me wrong, most fellas do rock They put their hands in the air, they take the show to the top They start rockin' with the ladies once the show begins They don't stand lookin' stupid like some mannequins They don't lean against the wall like they're I some trance They did not come with no intention to party or dance You know what yo dead beats should just stay home Leave me, my homeboys, and the ladies alone We love ladies

JAMIE GRACE "One Song At A Time"
Looking at the radio caught up in a dream 'Bout the days gone by when no one had a TV Hopin' that the weather man would say good things Like no rain on friday for the drive in movie Little kids didn't have a care There was love growin' up everywhere But when I open my eyes and the dream stops playin You can still find me somewhere saying I shoulda been born in '45 In '54 I woulda been 9 Lovin' my record player by my side That woulda been nice yeah, that woulda been nice I shoulda been born in '45 My first pair of high heels in '59 White shirt, poodle skirt, silk hair tie Dancing in the moonlight That woulda been nice Ooo ooh Oh that woulda been nice Ooo ooh Boombox on my shoulder wit my favorite tape I'm reppin my 8 tracks and my buckle up skates How do I know about that you say You say You wear bell bottom jeans get a double take From all the guys and the girls who look your way Back then people didn't always agree But the love goin round was revolutionary and Even though the world was crazy I'd still go if my dreams could take me oh I shoulda been born in '65 In '74 I woulda been 9 Tryna' get home after playin outside Racin' street lights, racin street lights I shoulda been born in '65 I woulda been a teenager round '79 Teasing my hair so it looks just right On a saturday night, yeah That woulda been nice Growin' up I never really had a care There was love all the time and everywhere And even though sometimes my world may get a little crazy I find myself bein proud when I say I coulda been born in '45 But the truth is I got here right on time And I thank God for every day of life It suits me just right, it suits me just right And lovely 1991 That's the year that I come from And I wouldn't wanna trade it for another time I love this life yeah I love this life Ooo ooh I love this life Ooo ooh I love this life

You

ATMOSPHERE "When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold"
You love the people that love you. You hear the music they move to. You give your ode to the fall through. But you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know. You love the people that love you. You hear the music they move to. You give your ode to the fall through. But you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know you. You just got off work, huh? Another night feeling like the worst one. You didn't even count your tips yet, But you can tell that it ain't no big step. I don't see why you so nice to customers They're all fucks and low lives. But don't fight, just keep the lip stiff And get that money it's the weekend shift. But why they all gotta be freaks. Wish they would just eat and leave. And keep they eyes to theyselves, already insecure, don't need any help. But you can blame the pride that makes you hold your anger inside, But deep down you wanna curse them all. Fuck off asshole jerk off dirt ball. You love the people that love you. You hear the music they move to. You give your ode to the fall through. But you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know. You love the people that love you. You hear the music they move to. You give your ode to the fall through. But you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know you. Now attitude check, Still show up? You haven't quit yet? And even when you're meek and sweet They still treat you like a piece of meat. Huh. Outrageous, each day this clock tick tock and you still a waitress. Trying to pay them student loans And the lights and the phone and the food and the home. And you ain't quite broke but you couldn't afford that place on your own. Gotta roommate, to split the rent with Now you never feel independent. And everything seems so hallow Cause after work, where'd that smile go? Better bring it back tomorrow. Now, pick up the pace and you might make bar close. Perfect, last call then some. Flirtin', sexual tension. Surfin', through them men Cause they all searching for that bent one. But just one to bend, and you look like you could be my friend. With a smile like that, I gotta flirt. Girl, you just look like you got off work. Huh.. huh... huh... You love the people that love you. You hear the music they move to. You give your ode to the fall through. But you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know. You love the people that love you. You hear the music they move to. You give your ode to the fall through. But you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know you.

STEELY DAN "Everything Must Go"
Worry the bottle Mamma, it's grapefruit wine Kick off your high heel sneakers, it's party time The girls don't seem to care what's on As long as it plays till dawn Nothin' but blues and Elvis And somebody else's favorite song Give her some funked up music, she treats you nice Feed her some hungry reggae, she'll love you twice The girls don't seem to care tonight As long as the mood is right FM - no static at all Give her some funked up music she treats you nice Feed her some hungry reggae she'll love you twice The girls don't seem to care tonight As long as the mood is right FM - no static at all
