THE ANTLERS lyrics - New York Hospitals

Sylvia (An Introduction)

Original and similar lyrics
When you were younger, you had nightmares You had scissor-pain and phantom limbs And things that kept you nervous Through that twelve-year interim When you fell crossing that street South of Houston, old Manhattan land Those nightmares fell from building-tops And took you by the hand And you were brought into those rooms With sliding curtains, shining children's heads And one of them, that boy Was not as lucky as you then But he returns to you at night Just when you think you might have fallen asleep His face is up against yours And you're too terrified to speak Oh, Sylvia Oh, Sylvia You may think that I'm not listening But I am, goddamn, I am I won't pretend I understand Because I can't, and know I never will But something makes you sting And something makes you want to kill It made you crawl under that house And stick your head under the stove It's all connected In those complicated nightmares that you wove Oh, Sylvia Oh, Sylvia You may think that I'm not listening But I am, goddamn, I am


AESOP ROCK "Bazooka Tooth"
Some cats grow by the laws of the wild Some learn slower and lag in the mud Some stand up in defense of a style Some let the big dogs eat them up At exactly 11:35pm on January 21st I fell asleep sound At exactly 11:35pm on January 21st some shit went down [Aesop Rock] Now Benny was a New York City graff kingpin Five Borough fame guaranteed to itch pigskin Raided near the Brooklyn Naval Yards, juxed an undercover When they asked him what he pled he said, "You're fuckin' up my cover!" [Mr. Lif] Okay, Jose is working in the slaughterhouse Said he's living in the hood, but he wants to get his daughter out Slipped off a ledge, and fell into a machine Another dead immigrant, that's the American Dream [Aesop Rock] Miss Molly, helpless, made a penny with a data entry temp gig Overqualified with the rent stick Red brick bash with a texted green screen Like, "I entered my data right into your screen" [Mr. Lif] Jane went insane, she's an anchorwoman Sick of pushing skewed information And abusing the nation Had a few options: Either jump or run Critical ways or waving a gun Time for C-H-A-N-G-E Held a knife to the VP on TV She demanded that the format be expanded Beyond fear, everybody clear, understand it? [Aesop Rock] Billy was a coke fiend [Mr. Lif] Maggie was a cop [Aesop Rock] Like a dope he stole green [Mr. Lif] She patroled the block [Aesop Rock] Banking off his old scheme [Mr. Lif] She recognized his plot [Aesop Rock] He thought he was home free [Mr. Lif] She knew that he was locked [Aesop Rock] Now it's off to the jail in a blue squad car [Mr. Lif] She pocketed the crack before they got far [Aesop Rock] Billy watches Maggy from behind steel bars Like "Where the crack went" [Mr. Lif] "I'ma smoke it tomorrah" [Aesop Rock] They call him Larry Luck Blackjack, big spender He was married once Till he bet her ring finger Seen him leaving Las Vegas With a pick up truck, diamond Forty large, and beautiful wife piece Less than what he came with Itched to get rich found nickels in the couch Hitched back to the casino with in an hour Said "I'm here to make a dollar out of fifteen cents" And was immediately shot to his death over debts [Mr. Lif] As Colin died, his mother cried Then the EMS survived Said that he could be revived but they lied Afterlife realized that water from the skies Washes pain from our eyes so our hopes could rise [Aesop Rock] Now, J.J. punch drunk, acts like a dumb fuck Bum touched girls looking young enough to thumb suck One saw the light, thought it right to rat him out Now gets raped by Aryans in the big house (OUCH!) [Mr. Lif] Ted did 20 years for rolling some weed Though he used to snort coke and dabble with speed Welcome home, homie, here's a blunt with hash You know the rules, bitch, take two and pass Some cats grow by the laws of the wild Some learn slower and lag in the mud Some stand up in defense of a style Some let the big dogs eat them up At exactly 11:35pm on January 21st I fell asleep sound At exactly 11:35pm on Januray 21st some shit went down [Aesop Rock] I got one Jack or Jill Jill won't, Jack will Jill didn't, then did it Jack fell No cellophane secrets, b I guess I sense two felt bumps in the tar No cell But hell, you jump the bar so well Parted your partners veil and dipped I'm New York harbor Tale of a sail, ripped sorta Stuck on purpose for tha love of birthplace But would have carried you home inside of my teeth anyday Turns out I wasn't cast in the master plan anyway He holds no grudge, holds his tongue, wild Same one she used to hold in both smiles [?] instinctual last shout if it killed me So you can ride up in the sun city guilt-free One year passed, the table is wobbling and your hollerin' back Sippin the fits you skipped when shit cracks They never missed it Not a long haul, bullshit, kids kicked into the same Shoebox with the flicks and lipstick I'll love you forever, cuz you know me better For the record, that one time I would've married you in a second But kill the rekindling dreams and navigate the friendship Or else by the time the stress wears out we'll both be dead and friendless

Searching For A Former Clarity

AGAINST ME! "Searching For A Former Clarity"
No the doctors didn't tell you, that you were dying. They just collected their money, And sent you on your way. But you knew all along, went on pretending nothing was wrong, you said I will keep my focus, till the end. And in the journal you kept, by the side of your bed. You wrote nightly in aspiration, of developing as an author. Confessing childhood secrets, of dressing up in women's clothes, Compulsions you never knew the reasons to, Well everyone, you ever meet or love, be just relationship based on a false presumption, despite everyone, you ever meet or love, in the end, will you be all alone? As the disease spreads slowly through your body, pumped by your heart to the tips of your arms and your legs, your greatest fear was that your mind wouldn't last, your coherency and alertness would be the first things to fade, as your hair thinned, as the weight fell off, as your teeth blackened, as the lesions spotted your skin, as you fell to your knees in the center of the stage, as you offered witness to mortality in exchange for the ticket price, as the lights blended into the continuing noise, as all hope was finally lost. Adrenaline carried one last thought to fruition. Let this be the end. Let this be the last song. Let this be the end. Let all be forgiven.


AESOP ROCK "Skelethon"
[Verse 1: Aesop Rock] You want to know why? Because I'm Dead messengers buried in their Melvin shirts Awoken as reanimated mummies from the sepulcher Anonymous and secular and ribbons and exposed brain Roll with grown men who still use code names Fold crawl space on the SS coat tails Might chase six legs through his oatmeal Oh dear, no pet seat his own homework Pet cruise cobble step shoes that are bone bugs Holmes, sick to the fishbone cone My yellow brick shtick ain't tip toe prone It's a misthrown sticky bomb slipping off the fingers wrong Any blips you're witnessing are living in the Sigma laws Blip, blip, dag, these ghosts need a doctor Shelter, clean Dunlops on a walker She sells sea shells he, draws revenge Plots on a chalkboard, watch what you walk toward [Hook] Blip krieg got fat Rock shot 'till he kiss green time lapse Block cheddar blitzkrieg climax Spring clean hijack, bring me my axe [Sample] Girl: What are you doing up there? Guy: Stealing, I'm a weekend burglar Girl: I'm on my lunch break, you want to help me kill half an hour? Guy: No.. [Verse 2: Blueprint] I'm laying in a cut over stuff from a bad meal Staring at the sun, on my back like a fat seal Debating with myself about whether not rap's real Cause broke motherfuckers are the only ones that have skill Everybody got intentions that they can't reveal Major label ax got to act like they don't have deals Claiming grassroots, I'm like "hell no Your buzz is as organic as Monsanto." I'm going at your beanstalk, ax in hand Over a beat bought Aes Rock, that's my man People sleeping still believing that we haven't expanded But that's just a small part of the master plan, bitch Printnificent, shining 'till your skin chafe Write until the pen ache, reclining by a big lake I'm only winning cause I went in an gettin' waked Chillin' at the crib by the time you get your shit straight [Hook] [Sample] You suppose robots would enjoy listening to music? You'd think that if robots are electronic creations they Enjoy listening to electronic music You think you can create a scientific symphony We'd not only send to our metal friends but Would also be fascinating to human ears You already have the [?] on the other side of the record I can't wait to hear it [Verse 3: Rob Sonic] Witty with a drum change queue Cherries in the mirror of his Mustang too Took his thang from the South to the rocking Hooters Bought her wangs and a round, then he chopped and screwed her Cops say they'd get him so he thumbed his nose up Petal to the metal, leave them dunked in donuts Stuck on "so what?" from the aged Tequila When he drove into the back of an eighteen-wheeler Basic leader, camp is cardboard The jet chooses raps to advance their shark soar Park for [?] my cordial stingers Address you crossly, corporal clinger Attention all freaks with newer footing My radio is not played by Cuba Gooding Who's assuming that the man's a block boy Cause he keep his fam happy with lots of Bok Choy [Hook]

...And Their Eulogies Sang Me To Sleep

THE AGONIST "Lullabies For The Dormant Mind"
All I heard was the sound of fish who'd drowned. All I saw was the inside of my eyelids. All I said fell short of reaching open ears. Word's floating, clouding the view... “See no, hear no, speak no evil” leave you deaf, dumb and blind, because the bad is all that you'll find. A deeply heart-felt goodbye to the part of me that dies when I decided to put others before me, yes, my heart fell asleep -- boredom and fatigue. I always said I wanted to die smiling, to pretend I'm at peave. Now from my corpse beams a frigid, blank grin and once hopeful eyes are sunken in. Like a lullaby to the cradle is the eulogy to the casket. All my flaws swept under the table to grieve the porcelain doll that was me. Their solemn songs sang me to sleep as my body escaped me. Welcome down to the new world! Happiness is being interred! Such a shameful masquerade! Fleeting, frozen minutes on display. Why is evolution such a shameful thing to say? Can you feel your bodily decay? Arms are beside me, hands open wide. Seems I was living my life in rewind, taking so many steps backwards, not looking behind. Because I can sure as hell feel my brain going blank. If my body betrays me, this pollution to thank. This condition infects my cells like it controls my mind. Internal army, defend me behind enemy lines! Fragile vehicle of mine! Don't abandon me yet! There is so much to live for that we so easily forget. Fascination with the fear... The concept escapes me. All encompassing fate... how it wrenches out hearts, torments our souls ans sings us all to sleep, to an eternal keep, no matter what beliefs, it sings us all...

Wishing Well

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT "The Airborne Toxic Event"
Standing on a bus stop Feeling your head pop Out in the night In the kind of night Where you want to be out On the street, on the street Crawling up the walls Like a cat in heat And the air is thin And it blows through your skin And you feel like something Is about to begin But you don't know what And you don't know when So you tear at your hair And you scratch at your skin You wanna run away, run away Just get on the fucking train and leave today And it doesn't matter where you spend the night You just might end up somewhere in a fight, in a fight Or caught in your room in a concrete shell Fighting all alone, with yourself, with yourself And you just wanna feel like a coin that's been tossed In a wishing well, a wishing well A wishing well, a wishing well Well you're tossed in the air And you fell and you fell Through the dark blue waters Where you cast your spell Like you were just a wish that could turn out well So you stand on the corner Where the angels sit And you think to yourself, "This is it, this is it This is all that I have All I can stand Is this air in my lungs And this coin in my hand That you tossed in the air And I fell, and I fell All the way to the bottom Of the well, of the well." Like those soft little secrets That you tell, that you tell To yourself when you think No one's listening too well And the walls spin And you're paper-thin From the haze of the smoke And the mescaline The sweat of your brow Under unmade sheets In your ear with the noise From the darkened streets Where you ran far and wide You screamed, you cried You thought suicide was an alibi But you were always a mess You were always aloof Yeah, it's awful, I guess But it's the awful truth It was true from the first To the last words that she read And she emerged from the dark Like a ghost in my head She said, "I haven't forgot Any words that you said I just stare at the clocks And I cry in my sleep And I tear up your letters And I burn them in heaps And I gather the ashes In that hole in the ground Where we fell"
