I love my mother
I love my father
I love my sisters, too.
I bought this guitar
To pledge my love
To pledge my love to you.

I am a rock bottom riser
And I owe it all to you
I am a rock bottom riser
And I owe it all to you

I saw a gold ring
At the bottom of the river
Glinting at my foolish heart
So my foolish heart
Had to go diving
Diving, diving, diving
Into the murk

And from the bottom of the river
I looked up for the sun
Which had shattered in the water
And pieces were rained down
Like gold rings
That passed through my hands
As I thrashed and I grabbed

Save me, I'm in a sea of beings
And there's no deny - the waves are holding me under

I'm drowning in a thousand faces
Alien expressions over and over again

I'm trying to scream but I can't exhale
The world seems to spin as I'm left on this square

With no will to hold on
Am I the only one crushed by the weight of the world?

Save me...
I think I've swallowed more than I can comprehend
A soul laid low

A soul has lost its faith again,
wide awake in this hole
A maggot on a plate again, wide awake in this hole
A soul has lost its faith again
I've lost myself too long
Am I the only one crushed by the weight of the world?

Found a way to rid myself clean of pain
And the fever that's been haunting me
Has gone away

Looking through my window
I seem to recognize
All the people passing by
But I am alone
And far from home
And nobody knows me

Never heard me say goodbye
Never shall I speak to anyone again
All days are in darkness
And I'm biding my time
Once I'm sure of my task I will rise again

You moved in
To my hotel
You could have done better
But oh well


I tapped your phones
I read your mail
We split the rent
But you couldn't
Make the bail...
(make the bail)


Now you never listened
To the fables
You just danced to the symphony
Of the musical sound of
Your ever expanding sea
(ever expanding sea)



And now with your hair
Turning so white
You live in your car
And drive
Drive all night.
And you think about j.d.
And why he had to leave
Kneeling in some bunker
Wiping his nose
On his sleeve


And I hope you don't mind
If I grab your private life
Slap it on the table
And split it
With a knife

I’ve become resistant to myself
To my weaknesses and pain
I’ve become the one
who wants to live
And just feel alive again
I’ve changed myself
I’ve become addicted
to being strong
Started out my second life
And the remnants of your
tears and smiles
Shift deleted from my mind
Without knowing how it hurts...
I feel safe
Without knowing how it hurts...
I feel safe
Is this
What I
Really
Wanted?

when you were a child,
you were a tomboy
and your mother laughed at the serious way
that you looked at her
and from your window at night
there were the star's little fires
and the armory lights

you were tracing the lines
of a globe with your fingers:
cool rivers, white wastes
desert shores, and the forest green
and a limitless life
in the breath of each tide
and each bright mountain, rising

but now the boys are away,
and such kicks they are having;
slashing away at the forest walls,
with their bitter knives.
sparks bloom in their eyes,
and they never look tired.
will they never look tired?

on cliffs that tower from the rising seas
their bonfire glow
where a tiger lies
and, cleaning their weapons,
they laugh at his useless
claws, and all:
it is a beautiful night
to be born to this life
and grind his every bone to powder!

do you remember
do you remember

she carried you down to the edge
of the dark river and said:
though the water is wide,
you will never grow tired
you are bound to your life
like a mother and child.
you will cling to your life
like a suckering vine
and like the rest of our kind
you will increase
and increase
past all of our dreaming

horse without rider
lungs without breathing
day without light
song without singing
a song...

licorice tattoo turned a gun metal blue scrawled across the shoulders
of a dying town the one eyed jacks across the railroad tracks
and the scar on its belly pulled a stranger passing through
he was a juvenile delinquent never learned how to behave
but the cops would never think to look in
burma shave
and the road was like a ribbon and the moon was like a bone
he didn't seem to be like any guy she'd ever known
he kinda looked like farley granger with his hair slicked back
she says i'm a sucker for a fella in a cowboy hat
how far are you going he said depends on what you mean
he says i'm only stopping here to get some gasoline
I'm guess I'm going thataway just as long as it's paved
i guess you'd say i'm on my way to
burma shave

and her knees up on the glove compartment
took out her barrettes and her hair spilled out like rootbeer
and she popped her gum and arched her back
hell marysville ain't nothing but a wide spot in the road
some night my heart pounds just like thunder
i don't know why it don't explode
cause everyone in this stinking town has got one foot in the grave
and i'd rather take my chances out in
burma shave

presley's what i go by why don't you change the station
count the grain elevators in the rearview mirror
mister anywhere you point this thing
has got to beat the hell out of the sting
of going to bed with every dream that dies here every mornin
and so drill me a hole with a barber pole
i'm jumping my parole just like a fugitive tonight
why don't you have another swig
and pass that car if you're so brave
i wanna get there before the sun comes up in
burma shave

and the spider web crack and the mustang screamed
smoke from the tires and the twisted machine
just a nickel's worth of dreams and every wishbone that they saved
lie swindled from them on the way to
burma shave

and the sun hit the derrick and cast a bat wing shadow
up against the car door on the shot gun side
and when they pulled her from the wreck you know she
still had on her shades
they say that dreams are growing wild just this side of
burma shave

When they found your body
Giant X's on your eyes
With your half of the ransom
You bought some sweet, sweet, sweet
Sweet sunflowers
And gave them to the night
Underneath the star of David
A hundred years behind behind my eyes
And with my half of the ransom
I bought some sweet, sweet, sweet
Sweet sunflowers
And gave them to the night

Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet sunflowers
And gave them to the night

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

There's a ghost on the horizon
When I go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I'm scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don't want to be the one
Left in there, left in there

There's a man on the horizon
Wish that I'd go to bed
If I fall to his feet tonight
Will allow rest my head

So here's hoping I will not drown
Or paralyze in light
And godsend I don't want to go
To the seal's watershed

Hope there's someone
Who'll take care of me
When I die, Will I go

Hope there's someone
Who'll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I'm tired

Καλό μήνα Stefania...Ξέρεις κατά βάθος απεχθάνομαι το You Tube...Νιώθω πως στην ουσία μας αποσπά την προσοχή από το να στρώσουμε τον κ@λο μας κάτω και να ακούσουμε ένα άλμπουμ ολόκληρο....Ειλικρινά το σκέφτηκα πάρα πολύ πριν ανοίξω το συγκεκριμένο νήμα και αυτό επειδή η ουσία του forum είναι τα κείμενά του...Τα γραπτά μένουν...Όλα τα άλλα περισσεύουν...

Παρόλα αυτά,ένιωσα την ανάγκη να δημιουργήσω μια θεματική ολότητα με κομμάτια που σε άλλη περίπτωση θα περνούσαν απαρατήρητα..

Όπως θα πρόσεξες από τα πρώτα κλιπ,,το thread έχει μια συγκεκριμένη "κατεύθυνση" ,μακριά από μελιστάλαχτες μπαλάντες για ερωτευμενους πιγκουίνους,,και απευθύνεται σε "μαύρες" ψυχές,που αναζητούν την λύτρωση στο ομιχλώδες τοπίο της ψυχής...

Καλό μήνα και πάλι....:2thumb22sup:

No one seems to care anymore
(as) I wander through this night all alone
No one feels the pain I have inside
Looking at this world through my eyes

No one really cares where I go
Searching to feel warmth forever more
The wheels of life they turn without me
Now you are gone... eternally

No...
Don't leave me here
The dream carries (me) on
Inside
I know...
Its not too late
Lost moments blown away
Tonight


Mankind, with your heresy
Can't you see that this is killing me
There's no one in this life
To be here with me at my side

Re: SIX FEET UNDER(GROUND)

Το Ghost Tropic είναι ίσως το πιο "μαύρο" album των Songs Ohia....Με λιτή αλλά ταυτόχρονα υποδειγματική , σεμιναριακου επιπέδου παραγωγή...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2vbN47KEXc

The Ocean’s Nerves
this place is trouble waiting
the light hangs so weakly on to the quiet
drag myself in a long line
in a long line (x2)
in a lonely line
and i jealously want the ocean’s deep nerve
i am a red flame hanging low to be close to it
hanging low to be close to you

Re: SIX FEET UNDER(GROUND)

Μπορεί οι Songs Ohia να μας άφησαν "χρόνους" αλλά ο Frontman τους,Jason Molina συνεχίζει ακάθεκτος το "καταστροφικό" του έργο....
Το παρακάτω βίντεο είναι ερασιτεχνικό αλλά πάρα πολύ καλό...

Something must have happened to both of us
Something must have happened
Something always does
Something must have told you �burn the bridges then the ???�
Something always told you to do it
I lived low enough so the moon wouldn�t waste it�s light on me
What�s left in this life that would do the same for me
Something must have only loved one of us
To say �Get out, get out, get out
Get out, while there�s still something left of us
Get out, get out, get out� (x2)
