Musical 365.25: Josh Ritter - Come And Find Me

i keep you in a flower vase
with your fatalism and your crooked face
with the daisies and the violet brocades
and i keep me in a vacant lot
in the ivies and forget-me-nots
hoping you will come and untangle me one of these days

take me to the docks, there’s a ship without a name.

the water there is deeper than anything you’ve ever seen.
jump right in and swim until you freeze.

oh, i could throw you in the lake,
or feed you poisoned birthday cake.
i wont deny I’m gonna miss you when you’re gone.
oh, I could bury you alive,
but you might crawl out with a knife
and kill me when I’m sleeping.
that’s why;

i can’t decide,
whether you should live or die.

i got a cocaine woman and she’s cookin up a pound of pills.
another ride to the station and you know I’m gonna pay the bills, lord.
i gotta go see my baby,
gotta run, run, run.
the only girl I loved,
she’ll be the last one.
i know, i know.
she’s hell on wheels.
i know how she feels, boy.

i like the way that she moves when she moves me.
i like the way that she feels when she feels me.
she don’t complain when i say that i’m leavin’.
i’m in love.

Musical 365.25: The Black Keys - Sinister Kid

well, the crooks are out 
and the streets are gray 
you know i wouldn’t have it 
any other way

your mother’s words 
they’re ringing still 
but your mother don’t 
pay our bills

a sinister kid is a kid who 
runs to meet his maker 
a drop dead sprint from the day he’s born 
straight into his maker’s arms 
and that’s me, that’s me 
the boy with the broken halo 
that’s me, that’s me 
the devil won’t let me be

and how will we know if we just don’t try,
we won’t ever know.

let me light up the sky,
light it up for you.
let me tell you why,
i would die for you.

Musical 365.25: Rilo Kiley - 85

i’m just of real sad folk.
and ‘85 was our best year.
and she says it gets much worse,
before it gets any better.

so I take it with a grain of salt for the other means.
i wonder why it doesn’t keep her up at night,
like it does me.

we talk the way you do.
i have a sweet or two.
for my only plus you say,
they’re getting bigger everyday.

so i take it with a grain of salt for the other means.
i wonder why it doesn’t keep him up at night,
like it does me.

Musical 365.25: Alanis Morissette - Wunderkind

oh perilous place
walk backwards toward you
blink disbelieving eyes chilled to the bone
most visibly brave
no apprehended gloom
first to take this foot to virgin snow

i am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
i am a wunderkind ohwowoh
i lift the envelope pushed far enough to believe this
i am a princess on the way to my throne
destined to serve
destined to roam

Musical 365.25: Wiretree - Back In Town

letting go is the hardest part.
if you shut down you won’t get far.
all the nights are keeping you down from the day of your calling.
when you get back to the very start,
crooked days have played their part.
all the nights are keeping you down from the day of your calling, 
the day of your calling.

Musical 365.25: The Wombats - Techno Fan

east london’s not a bomb site.
it is a treasure chest.
we use our penguin costumes
more than our evening dress.
she said I should come over,
though the music’s not my type.
don’t you know I’d chop a limb off
just to have a good time.

shut up and move with me, move with me, or, or get out of my face.
i didn’t queue for an hour to leave straight away.
shut up and stay with me, stay with me, or, or let go of my hand.
the lasers fill our minds with empty plans.
i never knew i was a techno fan.


ARTIST: TV on the Radio
TRACK: New Cannonball Blues
ALBUM: Nine Types of Light

Musical 365.25: Tv On The Radio - New Cannonball Blues

hey girls, hey boys no don’t mind the noise.
it’s just the sound of being dragged ahead.
it’s just a pornographic annulationship,
as we watch the spider’s web eat itself.

all this death above extinguishing
all that you’ve ever known.
turn your touch screens off and start harvesting
the seeds that your parents sew.

it’s got me singing blues that hit you like a cannonball,
loud enough to break your bones.
but it was written in blood before they wrote it in stone.
so, sing it with me like it’s your own.

Musical 365.25: Yael Naïm - Far Far

far far, there’s this little girl.
she was praying for something to happen to her.
everyday she writes words and more words,
just to spit out the thoughts that keep floating inside.
and she’s strong when the dreams come cause they
take her, cover her, they are all over.
the reality looks far now, but don’t go.

how can you stay outside?
there’s a beautiful mess inside.
how can you stay outside?
there’s a beautiful mess inside.
oh oh oh oh
