ARIEL PINK lyrics - Worn Copy

Thespian City

Original and similar lyrics
And we started to act... Like fools we acted We acted like fools And didn't we like it (We like it, yeah We like it) Everybody liked it Tell me - what's up with all the groups around these days Lemme just say I think it's such a shame How all the bands always play live and people pay To see these phonies on stage who only imitate, hey! Rock n' roll's dead! It's all in your head! Thespian City Thespian City Now all the real music lives underground It's living on tape It's lost & found And while everyone's going downtown to escape I'm under headphones in my brain with a gun in my mouth that's how you do it, do it clown! Thespian City (I'm a thespian) Thespian City Though I'm back in the [?] and All people want Is people they know Talk about the people that you see in the show All the great writing's made right at home All the best shit's spared when you're lone Photographs and headphones and microphones Hit the pipe once, ready to go Performers are dull just guys with guitars singers and drummers who wanna be stars pretending to rock cause they know what it means pretending to be thespian, thespian pretending to be me that's T-H-E-S-P-I-A-N C-I-T-Y T-H-E-S-P-I-A-N C-I-T-Y Thespian city

JJ DEMON "Limbo"
I'm watchin' as the world ends, the city burns and [?] I see it from my window, as the zombies make their way in my home And watchin' as the world ends, the city burns and [?] I see it from my window, as the zombies make their way in my home The claps, the cinematography elapses Wait another minute, then follow me through the city's last colony Runnin' low on its rations, from the other side of the door You hear 'em scratchin' Grab your weapon, we're walkin' into the wasteland We can shake hands with the night, where the undead breakdance in the alley The cardboard's rotted, a prisoner of your own car doors when you lock 'em Aim for the head, rappers ain't talkin' about their jeans when they're dead Just brains, and the taste of your flesh, pushin' an envelope filled with anthrax Even with a fire, you'll never know where my camp's at Mad Max, I'm taking you to the thunder dome just beyond The waves at the mercy of the undertow For those of you that thought the apocalypse would be wonderful Plannin' in on your Facebook, you're the first ones to go Down in the fall out shutter it's getting hectic It's looking like maybe the baby is today's breakfast Everybody's tryin' to be eclectic, everybody's remindin' me of dyslexics Readin' the shit backwards, a black bird perched on a church steeple We all hurt people that knows people hurt People that knows people hurt People that knows people hurt It all falls apart, it's just the way that evil works So when it starts rumblin' and comes crumblin' down Maybe we're better off under the ground, now that is limbo We all wanna just party and pretend, though I'm watchin' it all out of my window The city's gonna fall, oh I see the walls, and they're crumblin' down [?] the blood, and this is apocalypse now

City Madness

DAN HILL "Hold On"
Wake up to the madness of the city Say hello it's a brand new day Brush my teeth read the paper Everything is changing so fast it stays the same Cars attack the city street City sidewalk - city heat People push and people fly No one laughs and no one cries Someone save me. Look up - an office building Stares right back indignantly Look down - my feet keep moving Shuffling to the city's endless beat Billboards tell me what to buy How to dress and how to die Traffic signals starts to change Madness starts all over again Someone save me. Chorus: My doctor says I need a brief vacation Wife says it's just a stage, I'll be alright Boss says I've got too much imagination Papers tell me rain again tonight. Wake up to the madness of the city Close my eyes and fly to Mars A man jolts my arm I swing out madly He swings back and I see stars I curse my world beneath my breath I curse myself I curse what's left People push - people fly No one laughs - no one cries Someone save me Repeat Chorus

I've Been Everywhere

JOHNNY CASH "Unchained"
I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road, When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load. "If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride." And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside. He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand. And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land!" [Chorus:] I've been everywhere, man. I've been everywhere, man. Crossed the desert's bare, man. I've breathed the mountain air, man. Of travel I've had my share, man. I've been everywhere. I've been to: Reno, Chicago, Fargo, Minnesota, Buffalo, Toronto, Winslow, Sarasota, Wichita, Tulsa, Ottawa, Oklahoma, Tampa, Panama, Mattawa, La Paloma, Bangor, Baltimore, Salvador, Amarillo, Tocapillo, Baranquilla, and Perdilla, I'm a killer. [Chorus] I've been to: Boston, Charleston, Dayton, Louisiana, Washington, Houston, Kingston, Texarkana, Monterey, Faraday, Santa Fe, Tallapoosa, Glen Rock, Black Rock, Little Rock, Oskaloosa, Tennessee to Tennesse Chicopee, Spirit Lake, Grand Lake, Devils Lake, Crater Lake, for Pete's sake. [Chorus] I've been to: Louisville, Nashville, Knoxville, Ombabika, Schefferville, Jacksonville, Waterville, Costa Rica, Pittsfield, Springfield, Bakersfield, Shreveport, Hackensack, Cadillac, Fond du Lac, Davenport, Idaho, Jellico, Argentina, Diamantina, Pasadena, Catalina, see what I mean-a. [Chorus] I've been to: Pittsburgh, Parkersburg, Gravelbourg, Colorado, Ellensburg, Rexburg, Vicksburg, Eldorado, Larimore, Atmore, Haverstraw, Chatanika, Chaska, Nebraska, Alaska, Opelika, Baraboo, Waterloo, Kalamazoo, Kansas City, Sioux City, Cedar City, Dodge City, what a pity. [Chorus] (I've been everywhere)

Little Plastic Castle

ANI DIFRANCO "Little Plastic Castle"
In a coffee shop in a city Which is every coffee shop in every city On a day which is every day I picked up a magazine Which is every magazine Read a story, and then forgot it right away They say goldfish have no memory I guess their lives are much like mine And the little plastic castle Is a surprise every time And it's hard to say if they're happy But they don't seem much to mind From the shape of your shaved head I recognized your silhoutte As you walked out of the sun and sat down And the sight of your sleepy smile Eclipsed all the other people As they paused to sneer at the two girls From out of town I said, look at you this morning You are, by far, the cutest But be careful getting coffee I think these people want to shoot us Or maybe there's some kind of local competition here To see who can be the rudest People talk About my image Like I come in two dimensions Like lipstick is a sign of my decling mind Like what I happen to be wearing The day that someone takes a picture Is my new statement for all of womankind I wish they could see us now In leather bras and rubber shorts Like some ridiculous team uniform For some ridculous new sport Quick someone call the girl police And file a report In a coffe shop in a city Which is every coffee shop in every city On a day which is every day
