snake's got a leg
it's one only she can see
then she'll get so many legs
then she'll run in ways we'll never ever see

i got a jacket
a coat full of contraband
and i got, got so many high heels to sell
and i got, got so many hands to hand 'em over with

and they'll eat like kings

so oh, got hit with bows and arrows
i said oh, got hit with bows and arrows

i don't wanna go into the hills today
into the mountains to feed the crows
up in the hills, up in the hills
it's cold and brutal

they peck at my bones with their beaks
i'm lying down
they peck at my eyes with their beaks
i'm lying down
they peck at my ears with their neverending cawing

and they'll eat like kings

so snake's in the grass
put that snake in the oven 'cause I'm the oven and say,
how can you live so high in the mountains?

it's cool in the shade of the woodshed, baby, say,
can i stay awhile?
she said, no, how dare you live up so high in the mountains?

i got chased by a hundred snakes this morning
got away from a hundred snakes in the night
sing: how can you live up so--

-- "snake's got a leg iii," sunset rubdown

if i was a horse i would throw up the reins if i was you
but i am no horse and you are no angel
i said if i was a horse i would throw up the reins if i was you

your hands in my mane
your hands on my muscles
your weight on my back
it keeps me from trouble

but such weights never did stay in madrid did they
you gotta ride me to a pasture on a ride to kiss all the wings

you are a waterfall
waiting inside a well
you are a wrecking ball
before the building fell
and every lightning rod
has gotta watch the stormcloud come

and i heard of pious men
and i've heard of dirty fiends
but you don't often hear
of us ones in between
i've heard of creatures
who eat their babies
i wonder if they stop to think about the taste

i saw the sun go down
outside of arkansas
i saw the sun come up
somewhere in illinois
and in the darkness
i taught myself to hate
oh where were you, oh where were you
and where the f*ck did the sun go

i am a creature
and i am surviving
and i want to be alone
but i want your body
so when you eat me
mother and baby
oh baby, mother me
before you eat me

and you should always pass
when you've got the inside lane
don't pull your hair out
i won't pull my hair out
for i have never
seen a sun
that did not bury his head in the side of the world when the day is done

you are a waterfall
waiting inside a well
you are a wrecking ball
before the building fell
and i will mother
like a lover
who speaks in tongues
he speaks in tongues
oh i speak in tongues

-- "us ones in between," sunset rubdown

to think that i would die this time
isolated in the room where the bed rises
photographic ordinary people are everywhere
extraordinary histories, ordinary histories, ordinary histories

i'll find sleep, i'll find peace
or in death you'll sleep with me

to figure that it was my fault
or so i've come to realize life is not about
love with someone (ordinary people are everywhere)
extraordinary people are, ordinary people are, ordinary people are

everywhere you look, everywhere you turn
illness is watching, waiting its turn

did i go at it wrong?
did i go intentionally to destroy me?
i'm suffering in noise i'm suffering in (touching ordinary body)
the burning from within the burning with (ordinary hysteria)
i could not be at rest -- i could not be at peace (extraordinary hysteria)

so do yourself a good, or do yourself a death from ordinary causes
or do yourself a favor, or do yourself a death from ordinary causes

illness likes to prey upon the lonely -- pray upon the lonely
wave goodbye, oh, i would rather be, but i would rather be fine

i want to be well
i want to be well
i want to be well
i want to be well
i want to be well
i want to be well
i want to be well
i want to be well

and i forgive you even
as you choke me that way
with the pill or demon
and the shrouded shalom
under conversation
in tremendous weight of
a crowd of ages outside
dressed for murder

i'm not f*cking around (i want to be well)
i'm not (want to be well)
i'm not (want to be well)
i'm not f*cking around (i want to be well)
i'm not (want to be well)
i'm not (want to be well)

and shall i kiss you even
as you take me that way
with the pill or demon
as my body changes
apparitions gone awry
they surround me, all sides
but from within i see
an unholy change

i'm not f*cking around (i want to be well)
i'm not (i want to be well)
i'm not (i want to be well)

-- "i want to be well," sufjan stevens

i asked you a question
but i didn't need you to reply
is it getting heavy
but then i realized
is it getting heavy
well i thought it was already as heavy as can be

is it overwhelming
to use a crane to crush a fly
it's a good time for superman
to lift the sun into the sky
'cause it's getting heavy
hell i thought it was already as heavy as can be

tell everybody waiting for superman
that they should try to hold on best they can
he hasn't dropped them, forgot them, or anything
it's just too heavy for superman to lift

early morning sun has risen gold and chrome for anastasia
wake up slowly out the window someone calls for anastasia
and i don't know how to stop it at all
i just don't know how to stop it at all
and i don't know how to stop it anastasia

he wants your heart in his little fictions
but he just hasn't earned it yet baby
so raise your hands as he's explaining
how he built this city on cocaine lasers
and he don't know how to stop it at all
he just don't know how to stop it at all
and he don't know how to stop it anastasia

morning will turn turn everything back to gold

so kill the lights for slow slow dancing
oh as if no one would notice
and sing your songs -- sing them all night, baby
if it's out of key, well, nobody's perfect
and you don't know how to stop it at all
you just don't know how to stop it at all
and you don't know how to stop it anastasia
and you don't know how to stop it at all
you just don't know how to stop it at all
and you don't know how to stop it

morning will turn turn everything back to gold

oh you'll never know you'll never know know about
how his little heart his little heart was feeling so down
oh you'll never know you'll never know know about
how his little heart his little heart was feeling so down

i'm sorry that i'm late
i went blind
i got confetti in my eyes
i was held up at yesterday's parties
i was needed on the congo line

but my dear, oh my dear
i'd like to fight the good fight for another couple of years
'cause to say the war is over is to say you are a widow
you're not a widow yet
you're not a widow yet

so this one's for the critics and their disappointed mothers
for the cupid and the hunter shooting arrows at each other
ain't no such thing as a saint
ain't no such thing as a sinner

there's a swan among the pigeons of barcelona's floor
there's a samson with delilahs lining up outside the door
if you are sharpening your scissors
i am sharpening my scissors
and i am sharpening my sword

so you can take me to the dragonslair
or you can take me to rapunzel's windowsill
either way it is time for a bigger kind of kill
a bigger kind of kill

oh i see your face when i close my eyes
oh i see the muscles in your legs from the way you always rise
to the occasion of catching things that fall
like the statuettes on pedestals i tend to build too tall
but i have navigated iceland
i've laid my claim on portugal
i have seen into the wasteland
oh the future
oh the future of us all

i know it's not over
baby, i worked this out for sure
it's gonna be colder
now you've forced open the door
i know you better
than i ever have before
i know you

i know you're a fighter
but you never fought for me
when i was shelter
and you're not heading home to me
we could be closer
we could be closer
we could be

when it's just us
you show me what it feels like to be lonely
you show me what it feels like to be lost
i take your hand for you to let it go

it's gonna be
it's gonna be better
it's gonna be better
it's gonna be

we'll take a long walk
down the alleys of these houses
and we'll talk
see what conversation rouses
when we're alone
when we're alone
it could be home

when it's just us
you show me what it feels like to be lonely
you show me what it feels like to be lost
i take your hand for you to let it go

it's gonna be
it's gonna be better
it's gonna be better
it's gonna be

he said, 'i am the devil, boy,
come with me and we'll make many storms'
he offered me the universe
but inside my heart there's a picture of a girl

some call love a curse
some call love a thief
but she's my home
and she's as much a part for this broken heart
see, broken bones always seem

i'll taste the devil's tears
drink from his soul
but i'll never give up you
i'll taste the devil's tears
drink from his soul
but i'll never give up you

he said, 'i am the devil, boy
come with me and we'll break many laws'
he offered me eternal life
but inside my heart there's a picture of a girl

some call love a curse
some call love a thief
but she's my home
and she's as much a part for this broken heart
you see, broken bones always seem to mend

i'll taste the devil's tears
drink from his soul
but i'll never give up you
i'll taste the devil's tears
drink from his soul
but i'll never give up you

goodbye to sleep
i think this staying up
is exactly what i need
well take apart your head
take apart the counting
and the flock it has bred

goodbye to love
well it's a ride that will push you up
right against the wall
take apart your head
(right against the wall)
chew it up and swallow it

(does everybody really need to know everyone
do you really think you're really a part of it
and is your army really one of some thousands
and will you declare war on the loony bin)

you're brought back but you're running
i fell asleep at the incline
i can't shake this little feeling
i'll never get anything right

goodbye you liar
well you sipped from the cup but you don't own up to anything
then you think you will inspire
take apart your head
(and i wish i could inspire)
take apart the demon
up in the attic to the left

(when i arrive will god be waiting and pacing around his throne
will he feel a little old testament
and will he celebrate with fire and brimstone
yes, i admit, i am afraid of the reckoning)

(goodbye my love)
you're brought back but you're running
(you wait right here and they will come and pick you up)
let's sleep at the incline
(i've been on pause but i'm shaking off the rust)
i can't shake this tiny feeling
(i've lost my charge, i've been degaussed)
i'll never say anything right
(i'm on my own, i've been degaussed)

take me take me back to your bed
i love you so much that it hurts my head
say, "i don't mind you under my skin
i'll let the bad parts in, the bad parts in"

well when we were made we were set apart
life is a test and i get bad marks
now some saint got the job of writing down my sins
well the storm is coming, the storm is coming in

you burn bright but you're running
i feel safe at the incline
i can't shake this little feeling
i never did anything right
(i'm on my own)
i never did anything right

take me take me back to your bed
i love you so much that it hurts my head
i don't mind you under my skin
i let the bad parts in, the bad parts in

well you're my favorite bird and when you sing
i really do wish that you'd wear my ring
no matter what they say i am still the king
the storm is coming
the storm is coming in

Mumford & Sons - Ghosts That We Knew

You saw my pain washed out in the rain
Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins
But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart
And you knelt beside my hope torn apart

But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
We'll live a long life

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we'll be alright

So lead me back, turn south from that place
And close my eyes to my recent disgrace
'Cause you know my call
And we'll share my all
And our children come and they will hear me roar

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we'll be alright

But hold me still, bury my heart on the coals
And hold me still, bury my heart next to yours

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
'Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold on as long as you like
Just promise me we'll be alright

But the ghosts that we knew made us black and all blue
But we'll live a long life

hey you handsome vulture
what you got hiding under there
you got my hands tied
you got your hands behind your back

i take it all's okay you handsome vulture
with all your charm and wit and escapades
you're making me pick
you son of a bitch
you're making me pick one

you ask me about my absences
and then you make some of your own
you ask me about my absences
and then you makes some of your own

Muse - Unintended

You could be my unintended
Choice to live my life extended
You could be the one I'll always love
You could be the one who listens to my deepest inquisitions
You could be the one I'll always love

I'll be there as soon as I can
But I'm busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

First there was the one who challenged
All my dreams and all my balance
She could never be as good as you

You could be my unintended
Choice to live my life extended
You should be the one I'll always love

I'll be there as soon as I can
But I'm busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

I'll be there as soon as I can
But I'm busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before

Before you

The Fray - Be Still

Be still and know that I'm with you
Be still and know that I am here
Be still and know that I'm with you
Be still, be still, and know

When darkness comes upon you
And covers you with fear and shame
Be still and know that I'm with you
And I will say your name

If terror falls upon your bed
And sleep no longer comes
Remember all the words I said
Be still, be still, and know

And when you go through the valley
And the shadow comes down from the hill
If morning never comes to be
Be still, be still, be still

If you forget the way to go
And lose where you came from
If no one is standing beside you
Be still and know I am

Be still and know that I'm with you
Be still and know I am

i am embracing the cold rushing in
like ice to a diamond
it's a new kind of rough you can find me in

when the sail starts flapping in the wind
i say, 'cool, that looks cool,
now do you think the second movement has too many violins'

don't get too close
you'll detect the west coast air in my chest
and the way i hold it in there

it's the taming of the hands that came back to life
when she synchronized swam on the ice in '03
oh but enough about me

will you live in the physical world
will you live in the physical world

and though explosions make debris
and catching it kinda suits you
well it doesn't suit me

she said, 'my sails are flapping in the wind'
i said, 'can i use that in a song'
she said, 'i mean the end begins'
i said, 'i know -- can i use that too'

will you live, will you live in the physical world
will you live, will you live in the physical world
with the sun setting low and the shadows unfurled
can you live with the way they make you look unreal
