Charlie Cunningham - Lights Off

Happy New Year everyone! Love the percussion in this one. Great Track.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

To say it was a different walk in
A different walk in a different park is what it was
This one was different
You could see it when she walked inside
It wasn’t as bad as you might have thought
They don’t want to see the light you had get burned away
You must have been different that day
See, I always thought that they’s seen you like a charming man
But you don’t feed them something then that you mean, boy
And learn to love these days, boy

She see what you mean cause she’s seen it
Well, she don’t want to know, she’s seen the way you’ll go
Listen, that stuff it’s not wrong cause it’s your song
So, lights off

She see what you mean cause she’s seen it
Well, she don’t want to know, she’s seen the way you’ll go
Listen, that stuff it’s not wrong cause it’s your song
So, lights off

They don’t want to see the light you had get burned away
You must have been different that day
See, I always thought that they’s seen you like a charming man
But you don’t feed them something then that you
And learn to love these days, boy

She see what you mean cause she’s seen it
Well, she don’t want to know, she’s seen the way you’ll go
Listen, that stuff it’s not wrong cause it’s your song
So, lights off

She see what you mean cause she’s seen it
Well, she don’t want to know, she’s seen the way you’ll go
Listen, that stuff it’s not wrong cause it’s your song
So, lights off

The falling star you saw that was something coming
These moments are your life, acknowledge them
It’s easier the fall if you’re closer to the floor, but that’s all
The falling star you saw that was something coming
These moments are your life, acknowledge them
It’s easier the fall if you’re closer to the floor, but that’s all
She been there, seen it all
That’s not your fault
It’s your song playing though
Lights off

Martin Luke Brown - Take Out Of Me



LYRICS:

[Verse 1]
Nothing, nothing is not quite something
Something that feels you feel one thing
One thing that nothing else can
Love me, love me as if I matter
Love me until I shatter
Shatter into a shell

[Pre-Chorus]
You made my blood pour, pour out
Maybe in a good way, maybe in a bad way
And you take me to places that I'm never go again
Where I feel no pain

[Chorus]
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
(Take every bit of me)
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
Take out of me, oh

[Verse 2]
Want me, want me so I feel needed
Needed to make you feel better
Better than anyone else

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause you take me to places that I'm never gonna go again
Where I feel no pain

[Chorus]
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
(Take every bit of me)
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
Take out of me, oh

[Post-Chorus]
The only way I want
Come and help me come undone
You're the only thing I need
I think I'm strong, but you made me weak
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
Take out of me, oh

[Bridge]
You make me lose my mind
And I need it all the time
You make me lose my mind
And I need it all the time

[Pre-Chorus]
You made my blood pour, pour out
Maybe in a good way, maybe in a bad way
And you take me to places that I'm never go again
Where I feel no pain

[Chorus]
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
(Take every bit of me)
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
Take out of me, oh

[Post-Chorus]
The only way I want
Come and help me come undone
You're the only thing I need
I think I'm strong, but you made me weak
Take into me
Pull into me
And take out of me
Take out of me, oh

[Outro]
Whoa
(Take out of me)
Oh, won't you take everything?
No, no, no no no no
(Take out of me)
Take out of me

Penny and Sparrow - Honest Wage



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

When you called, it was loud; I got angry.
I was everything but sober.
I said things that were ruthless, and I meant 'em,
But you told me to come over.
You say he's in town, and you're crying,
And you're throwing him one hell of a party.
So I hang up and start shaking, thinking
You never threw one for me.
I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.
So, I drove when I shouldn't (But I'll make it; I'm feeling alright),
You walk out, (I'm a mess), you look perfect...
I figured you might...
Next thing I know, I'm exploding,
And everything feels awful and wrong.
And he's there, right beside you,
But the music inside is our song.
I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, no, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.
I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.
I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.
I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.
I wish it was easier to kiss you on the mouth,
Like it is to work hard and earn an honest wage.
But you're not always fair to me, like I wish you would be...
He's the one who left home; I'm the one who stayed.
I just get so angry when
You say you love him so,
I wanna be more like him;
I wanna know there's hope.

Basement - Animal Nitrate



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Like his touch, you know that he's high,
Animal nitrate in mind,
Oh the accounts of home, he jumped on your bones,
And now you're taking it time after time.

Oh it turns you on, on
Now he has gone
Oh what turns you on, on
Now your animals gone

Well he's said he'd show you his bed,
And his delights of his chemical smile.
So when he broke it home, he broke all your bones,
And now you're taking it time after time.

Oh it turns you on, on
Now he has gone
Oh what turns you on, on
Now your animals gone

What does it take to turn you on,
Now he has gone.
Now you're over 21,
Now your animals gone.

Animal, you are.
Animal, you are.
Animal oh
Animal, you are.
Animal, you are.
Animal oh

XYLØ - Afterlife

This track is amazing. Ugh...





LYRICS:

I'm bad luck baby, you know
Follows me around everywhere I go, and
I don't need your sympathy, no
I need a fuckin' miracle, oh
Red wine, teeth stain, it's been a long day,
I just want your love not your money
Leave me here, I'll be fine,
I'll wait for the stars to align

'Cause oh, how the other half live
With their perfect skin
And oh, how I'll never be, never be just like them

So, I, I, I'm waiting for the afterlife
To show me a good time baby, somebody save me
I just wanna be loved
I, I, I'm waiting for the afterlife
To show me a good time baby, somebody save me
I just wanna be loved

Don't watch tv no more, the news fucking scares me
New world war, and I don't wanna run away, no
I need a fuckin' holiday
So bad blood, bankrupt, out of love and luck
I'll get the keys to your Murciélago
Another drink will save me through, feeling invincible

So, oh, how the other half live
With their perfect teeth
And oh, how I'll never be, never be just like them

So, I, I, I'm waiting for the afterlife
To show me a good time baby, somebody save me
I just wanna be loved
I, I, I'm waiting for the afterlife
To show me a good time baby, somebody save me
I just wanna be loved

(x2)
We're still young, but we got older
We don't believe everything that we're told, yeah
We just wanna love, we just wanna be loved

So, I, I, I'm waiting for the afterlife
To show me a good time baby, somebody save me
I just wanna be loved
I, I, I'm waiting for the afterlife
To show me a good time baby, somebody save me
I just wanna be loved

Turnover - Diazepam



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

I know you're probably sick
Of always sorting me out
It's like I've always got the taste
Of orange nails in my mouth
I know you're probably exhausted
Cause I haven't slept a wink in a week

Your father doesn't like me
Cause I'm not into sports
And your mother won't approve
Because I'm not of the cross
I took an upper before your sister's wedding
Just to help me pretend

And I don't know what I need
I don't know if I'll be there for you
Down on your knees
I don't know if I'll be there for you

I know you always feel you're by yourself in the house
This is the only night this week I haven't slept on the couch
I hope you know it breaks my heart
That I'm the reason for your sleeping alone

Cause it was always a dream just to know you
Sometimes I find I can hardly speak your name
I know one day I'll come home and I'll find you
It's just a matter of time 'til you break from the strain

And I don't want to go outside
Don't want to make it home tonight
If it's not you in my heart
I don't want to carry it on

And I don't know what I need
(And I don't want to go outside)
I don't know if I'll be there for you
(Don't want to make it home tonight)
Down on your knees
(If it's not you in my heart)
I don't know if I'll be there for you
(I don't want to carry it on)

And I don't know what I need
(And I don't want to go outside)
I don't know if I'll be there for you
(Don't want to make it home tonight)
Down on your knees
(If it's not you in my heart)
I don't know if I'll be there for you
(I don't want to carry it on)

Saint Raymond - Everything She Wants



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Take back what we know is a hurricane,
moves faster than anything we try to feign,
sleep tight this storm is a lullaby,
in time it'll pass us by...
It comes back to haunt us again and again,
it's a white noise, it's a white noise,
the heartache,
the thunder,
the dust rising high,
it's a white noise, it's a white noise...
But in this life,
we can see everything,
in this life...
If I could give her, give her, give her,
everything she wants,
If I could show her, show her, show her,
everything she needs,
If I could give her, give her, give,
everything she wants,
If I could show her, show her, show her,
everything she needs...
Take back what we know is a hurricane,
goes out every time you get your own way,
sleep tight this storm is a dark sky,
wake up and it's passed us by...
It comes back to haunt us again and again,
it's a white noise, it's a white noise,
the heartache,
the thunder,
the dust rising high,
it's a white noise, it's a white noise...
But in this life,
we can see everything,
in this life,
If I could give her, give her, give,
everything she wants,
If I could show her, show her, show her,
everything she needs...
If I could give her, give her, give,
everything she wants,
If I could show her, show her, show her,
everything she needs...
If you're the girl who rules my heart,
I'm still the boy to tear it all apart,
you're still the girl who rules my heart,
I'm still the boy to tear it all apart,
you're still the girl who rules my heart,
I'm still the boy to tear it all apart,
you're still the girl who rules my heart,
it's all for us,
it's all for us...
If I could give her, give her, give,
everything she wants,
If I could show her, show her, show her,
everything she needs...
If I could give her, give her, give,
everything she wants,
If I could show her, show her, show her,
everything she needs...

Saint Raymond - As We Are Now

I'm not saying stick around, but stick around



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

We've all been waiting for this,
But it always comes too quick.
Spend our days in the playground,
Pretending not to be kids.

The girls are in the corner,
Already had too much to drink.
Boys hide behind their laughter,
Like they don't care what girls think.

We will never be as young as we are now,
The faces in the crowd are thinning out.
And I'm not saying stick around,
But stick around.
Oh, we may never have another like today,
Tomorrow is brand new start away.
And we'll never be as young as are now,
As we are now

We'll all been getting tired,
Of the streets that we've outgrown.
We sit indoors for hours,
Now King George has lost his throne.
But something out there's calling,
A whisper we call home.
The nights that I stayed with you,
Cos' you didn't want to be alone.

We will never be as young as we now,
The faces in the crowd are thinning out.
And I'm not saying stick around,
But stick around.
Oh, we may never have another like today,
Tomorrow is brand new start away.
And we'll never be as young as we are now,
As we are now

Vance Joy - Georgia

This is a great track. I'm glad I gave Vance's album a listen.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

She is something to behold
Elegant and bold
She is electricity
Running to my soul

And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me
Will work each time
Calling me to come back to bed
Singing Georgia on my mind

Lips generous and warm
You build me up like steps
Eyes innocent and wild
Remind me what it's like

And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me will work each time
Pulling me back into the flames
And I'm burning up again
I'm burning up

And I, I never understood what was at stake
I never thought your love was worth it's weight
Well now you've come and gone
I finally worked it out
I worked it out

I never should have told you
I never should have let you see inside
Don't want it troubling your mind
Won't you let it be
[x4]

And I could easily lose my mind
The way you kiss me will work each time
Pulling me back into the flames
And I'm burning up again, I'm burning up

And I, I never understood what was at stake
I never thought your love was worth it's weight
Well now you've come and gone
I finally worked it out
I worked it out

James Bay - If You Ever Want To Be In Love

What a soulful voice. I love this track.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Saw you today after so much time
Felt just like it used to be
Talking for hours 'bout a different life
Surrounded us in memories
We were close never close enough
Where are we now
'Cause if it's torn we can stitch it up
Don't rule it out
Oh no no

I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting, but I'm willing if you call me up
If you ever want to be in love
I'll come around

Wanted to ask if we could have been
But my tongue wouldn't break the seal
You always had something effortless
At school you were the biggest deal
Little quirks close and open up
Time is slipping by
I'm always thinking 'bout the two of us
Replay on my mind
Always playing on my mind

I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting, but I'm willing if you call me up
If you ever want to be in love
I'll come around

We were, young we were side by side
Don't know when we started losing touch
If you want we could walk around
Maybe that would be enough
Used to talk drinking to the night
I would wake up on the front room floor
All along you'd be in my bed
Make me crazy make me want you more

I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting, but I'm willing if you call me up
I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting, but I'm willing if you call me up
If you ever want to be in love
I'll come around

Turnover - New Scream

Another track from a great band. They are stuck in my head at the moment...



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Can I stay at home? I don’t want to go
I don’t want to wake up till the sun is hanging low
Stay up through the night, sleep away the light
Just another dream I had that's better than my life

Adolescent dreams gave to adult screams
Paranoid that I won’t have all the things they say I need
What if I don’t want a pattern on my lawn
All I know is somethings wrong because everyday

I’m craving that new scream lusting for more than just, old dreams
I’ve been dying to feel alive
And I’ve been wasting all my time, chasing the high

Can I reset my brain? If not I’ll go insane,
I swear to God that I don’t think I can go another day
Am I the only one? Is this in all of us? I hate the thought that I’m alone
But I hope that you're not
craving that new scream, lusting for more than just, old dreams
I’ve been dying to feel alive
And I’ve been wasting all my time, chasing the high

Still craving more than just, the same as how it was, I’ve been collecting dust
And I’ve been waiting still craving…

Turnover - Dizzy On The Comedown

Came across this band. Catchy and good lyrics.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Up and down like a red rubber ball
You're always back and forth like the clock on the wall
I want to know about you
I'm spinning all around you

If I stay do you think that we could change your routine?
I know a trick, I've always got a few up my sleeve
This life is controlled confusion
It's just a grand illusion

And you ask me "How do you feel when you're away?"
And you ask me "How do you pass the days?"

Sing along to a song that I know
It goes bah bah bada, sing it over and over
Let it hypnotize you
I'm still here right beside you

Hold my hand, you can follow my lead
You're like a ballerina twirling round on your feet
And watching is so fantastic
I want to ask you

Would you come here and spin with me?
I've been dying to get you dizzy,
Find a way up into your head
So I can make you feel like new again

Now collapse, take delight in the fall
And catch your breath I know you feel the ring from it all
So try and collect yourself now
It's just a euphoric comedown

And you ask me "How do you feel when you're away?"
And you ask me "How do you pass the days?"

Cause I can still remember when you were afraid of the dark
And I told you to come and you followed where I asked you to go

Would you come here and spin with me?
I've been dying to get you dizzy,
Find a way up into your head
So I can make you feel like new again

This Wild Life (Sleepwalking - Bring Me The Horizon) Cover

Love this cover. Better than original? What do you think?



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

My secrets are burning a hole through my heart
And my bones catch a fever
When it cuts you up this deep
It's hard to find a way to breathe

Your eyes are swallowing me
Mirrors start to whisper
Shadows start to sing
My skin's smothering me
Help me find a way to breathe

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
Fell into another hole again
It's like I'm sleepwalking

I'm at the edge of the world
Where do I go from here?
Do I disappear?
Edge of the world
Should I sink or swim?
Or simply disappear?

Your eyes are swallowing me
Mirrors start to whisper
Shadows start to sing
My skin's smothering me
Help me find a way to breathe

Sing it!

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
Fell into another hole again
It's like I'm sleepwalking

Wake up!
Take my hand and
Give me a reason to start again
Wake up!
Pull me out and
Give me a reason to start again

Time stands still
(Time stands still)
Time stands still
(Time stands still)

Your eyes are swallowing me
Mirrors start to whisper
Shadows start to sing
My skin's smothering me
Help me find a way to breathe

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking
Fell into another hole again
It's like I'm sleepwalking
(It's like I'm sleepwalking)
(It's like I'm sleepwalking)
(It's like I'm sleepwalking)

Time stood still
The way it did before
It's like I'm sleepwalking

Keaton Henson - Lying To You

Amazing track from Keaton. Pulling at the feeling strings.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

I can see in your eyes that you mean it
I can feel in your arms that it's true
And though I just heard myself say it,
Baby, I'm lying to you
Baby, I'm lying to you

All of these years you've been lonely,
And knowing not what you should do
And though you are right, I've been looking as well
Babe, I'm not looking for you
Babe, I'm not looking for you

I'm just as damn disappointed as you,
Only I just do better to hide it
And the one thing that keeps me from falling for you,
Is I'm truly alone and I like it
I'm truly alone and I like it

As we lie in bed, I feel lonely
Though we're young, I feel eighty years old
And your arms around me are keeping me warm
But baby, I'm still feeling cold
Baby, I'm still feeling cold

And, girl, you must know you are lovely
You're kind and you're beautiful, too
And I feel in some way I do love you
But babe, I'm not in love with you
But babe, I'm not in love with you

It may seem strange that I still stay with you,
If it's true you're not really the one
And why don't I just keep on looking for her?

Cause I found her, but now she is gone
Cause I found her, but now she is gone
Cause I found her, but now she is gone
Cause once I found her, but now she is gone

The Story So Far - Swords and Pens

Another track I love from TSSF. I have been on a kick.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Shovel the coal in this fire, ignite and conspire
Still doesn't mean that I'm not in your head
I'm falling in and out again
Slipped up and cared too much again
I must wake up, move on and mend
Instead of wasting so much time here
Cause I've grown up only to hate my own bed
I figure I'll just sleep when I'm dead
Despite what you heard I know what I said
I understand it was harsh but guess what?

I'm falling in and out again

Put yourself in my place for just one day
Watch all the colors in your spectrum fade grey
More aware than ever that I might never be calm again
And it shakes every fucking bone
Trying to do the right thing on my own
So I let the ink tell you how
I come to grips with all of this

I'm getting too old for this

What do you know, my shoes are my own
Tread the granite till you find
Some kind of place to call home

Put yourself in my place for just one day
Watch all the colors in your spectrum fade grey
More aware than ever that I might never be calm again
And it shakes every fucking bone
Trying to do the right thing on my own
So I let the ink tell you how
I come to grips with all of this

We're never gonna be the same again
Bury me I'm not your friend
You have your sword, I've got my pen
Measuring might is a means to an end

We're never gonna be the same again
Bury me I'm not your friend
Not broke, just bent.

The Story So Far - All Wrong Live



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

I doubted the way that the space could be filled for so long
I was so headstrong that maybe just maybe I was dead wrong
Tried to see if I could speak about it
And now I don’t know how to live without it right in the dent of my chest
Feeding off your mind 'cause you know best
And craving the days with you and your bed that wait back west
It’s never enough, no it’s never enough, no it’s never enough

It’s no fun
To play this song
So I’m done
You said I got it all wrong
But I’m sure everything we did before
Doesn’t really matter anymore
It’s no fun
To play this song
So I’m done
You said I got it all wrong
But I’m sure everything we did before
Doesn’t really matter anymore

Woke up covered in the sweat again
Worry and fog the lens
No solace I miss the fuck out of all my friends
I think back to sleeping on the back bench
Wish I’d let the absence tell them all of the things that I can’t
And now it’s all just patience
My father told me don’t pass this up
And take all the luck you can get
It’s never enough, no it's never enough, no it's never enough

Caught you leaving
You were high in the ceiling
On your own
On your own
Dodge your demons
Take your reasons
With you when you go, when you go.

It’s no fun to play this song
So I’m done
You said I got it all wrong
But I’m sure everything we did before
Doesn't really matter anymore
It’s no fun to play this song
So I’m done
You said I got it all wrong
But I’m sure everything we did before
Doesn't really matter anymore

And everything we did before, it doesn't really matter anymore.
And everything we did before, it doesn't really matter anymore.

Tom Misch & Carmody - Release You

Another great track. Thanks Mahogany! Leave a comment if you like it :-)



LYRICS:

Once there was a melody
That came from the depths of me
That's how it starts
It came from another place
Trail I can never trace
No matter how hard
And it's strange how the story's just now
As it leaves my voice
There was no choice
But to RELEASE YOU

(x2)
There was a time,
Oh, to release you
When you were mine
Oh, to release you
And now you're free
Oh, to release you
'Cause I released you
Oh, to release you

Once there was too much too say
Though I should find a way
And that's how it starts
Sorrows and ecstasy
Grow these words to me
No matter how hard
And it's strange how
The story's yours now
As it leaves my voice
There was no choice
But to RELEASE YOU

(x2)
There was a time,
Oh, to release you
When you were mine
Oh, to release you
And now you're free
Oh, to release you
'Cause I released you
Oh, to release you

(x2)
And now you lie
And I know there's mine
And you look like a stranger to me
To me, yeah

(x2)
There was a time,
Oh, to release you
When you were mine
Oh, to release you
And now you're free
Oh, to release you
'Cause I released you
Oh, to release you

Flo Morrissey - Pages Of Gold

Love her voice. Another to add to the playlist :-) Leave a comment if you like it. Cheers!



LYRICS:

Everyone except for you passes me by
Oh, tell me why I am doomed to hold on to this fight
While I stay in all day, shutting away these thoughts I have to hide
Everyone except for you passes me by
Oh, tell me why I am doomed to hold on to this fight
While I stay in all day, shutting away these thoughts I have to hide
But I'm kidding myself
I know that nothing will change the way I feel inside

These pages of gold that we have in store
In all minds, oh
Telling me otherwise
They say don't give in to the unheard, cry
Don't give in to the unheard, cry
Oh, oh, oh

A year has passed and I still am engrossed, how I feel, I forget
If it's such a big ask to be granted a day
When there's no need to fret
Then suddenly, you cease to love me
I was so silly to think I was free
I worry too much
It's true, I miss your touch
But I can't be a part of this villainy

For these pages of gold that we have in store
In all minds, oh
Telling me otherwise
They say don't give in to unheard, cry
Don't give in to the unheard, cry
Oh, oh, oh

If I'd were to love another, I'll pretend it doesn't bother me
If I'd were to love another, I'll pretend it doesn't bother me
For now, it's been too long for me to expect anything

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Tigers Jaw - Hum

I really love most of what they do, but just though I'd share one I have stuck in my head :-)



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

From the basement where we first talked,
to the ride home
with the kids we barely knew,
you left a permanent scar.

Memories are taped on our walls,
hung as a reminder.
How easy it could be,
when we weren’t growing apart.

I’m always talking in circles,
I always think until I can’t sleep.

We always want what is kept from us.
Well maybe I am the liar,
and there is nothing that is left for us.
You are a permanent scar.

I'm always talking in circles,
I always think until I can't sleep.

You are the leaves at my feet.
You are the hum of electric heat.
I kept myself away,
but I’m starting to like the pain.

Brand New is Back! First New Song in Six Years!

Is this six years worth in one song? Tell me what you think.



LYRICS:

How does everything start and end?
Come gather now and lay this beast to rest
I kept hearing trumpets
got my hearing checked

my father spoke of prophecy
To think that I believed is self-centered of me
There was something I was trying to say
But then I choked on it
And now it’s getting kinda late

We walked to the edge but we never leapt
What sings to you when you disconnect?

Written on the wall
The letters plain and tall
This is my own fault
We don’t feel anything

I'll still cower to eternal wrath though
Don’t want my fear to become my shadow
I want to invade my thoughts
I want to die in Kyoto [?] Don Quixote

the ocean never sleeps or dreams
It never stops to ponder what it sees
Committed to its satellite
No one can move the man
And no one’s ever gonna try

All the tides are married to the moon
All I want is for my heart to be as true

Written on the wall
The letters plain and tall
This is my own fault
We don’t feel anything
Now Not gone, we're fading fast
so let me put it to rest
the only question that you'll ask
we don't feel anything

caaaats!

Moose Blood - Pups

I love you so much Dad and I miss you. Another dedication to you.



LYRICS:

Here's one for my old man
I know I ain't got your name on my hand yet
But I will
You know that I will
Do you remember saying that you'd stretch your ear so much bigger than mine
But you ain't got the time
And you gave up
I guess that I won
I jumped a flight of stairs
Because I knew you were waiting there
I jumped a flight of stairs because I was so excited to have you home
Do you remember I took you out on the town
You fell to the ground and make that sound we do
My friends just don't get it
Do you remember when you left my friends
You went off on your own and missed your ride home
You missed out
Mum couldn't find you
I jumped a flight of stairs
Because I knew you were waiting there
I jumped a flight of stairs because I was excited to have you home
It doesn't matter that we can't get drunk Dad
It doesn't mean that we can't have fun
We can go out for a couple, or maybe a few
It wasn't getting drunk I loved it was being with you
It doesn't matter that we can't get drunk Dad
It doesn't mean that we can't have fun
We can go out for a couple, or maybe a few
It wasn't getting drunk I loved it was being with you

Margot And The Nuclear So and So's - Broadripple Is Burning

Great Song. I've loved them for what feels like forever. Check out their other stuff :-)



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Children, Broadripple is burning
And the girls are getting sick
Off huffing glue up in the bathroom
While your boyfriends pick up chicks.
And darling I'm lost.
I heard you whispering
That night in fountain square.
The trashed filled streets made me wish we were heading home.

There was love inside the basement
Where that woman used to lie
In a sleeping bag we shared upon
The floor almost every night.
And darling I'm drunk,
And everything that I have loved has turned to stone.
So pack your bags and come back home.

And I'm wasted.
You can taste it.
Don't look at me that way,
'Cause I'll be hanging from a rope.
I will haunt you like a ghost.

If my woman was a fire,
She'd burn out before I wake,
And be replaced by pints of whiskey,
Cigarettes, and outer space.
Then somebody moves
And everything you thought you had has gone to shit.
We've got a lot.
Don't ever forget that.

And I wrote this on an airplane where the people looked like eggs.
And when a woman that you loved was gone,
She was bombing East Japan.
And don't fucking move,
'Cause everything you thought you had will go to shit.
We've got a lot.
Don't you dare forget that.

And I'm wasted.
You can taste it.
Don't look at me that way,
'Cause I'll be hanging from a rope.
I will haunt you like a ghost.

And I'm wasted.
You can taste it.
Don't look at me that way,
'Cause I'll be hanging from a rope.
I will haunt you like a ghost.

Seahaven - Flesh

I don't ever think what you need could be considered me,
still you drop everything anyway.



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Found you in a hole, it was enough.
Needed you to work on my wounds.
Offered up the back of your hand.
Suitable enough.

I've been pretty low.
So I fall back into your arms once more.
Give to me your flesh; you keep the rest.
We'll try this one again.

I don't ever think what I want could be considered Love,
but it is what I want anyway.
Beauty in the dark, fragile heart, see the end from the start.
I don't ever think what you need could be considered me,
still you drop everything anyway.

Now it's how it was when I was lost,
in a sea of skin that talks.
Louder than the bones that it coats.
Strong enough to overthrow growth.

How do you access a burly mess,
coined as a result of your head?
Turn and face the hurt you harbor.
Wish yourself the best.

I don't ever think what I want could be considered Love,
but it is what I want anyway.
Beauty in the dark, fragile heart, see the end from the start.
I don't ever think what you need could be considered me,
still you drop everything anyway.

Damn all those tricks of yours; make me feel so small.
I've got some, lots of them. I'm waiting for my turn to turn.

I don't ever think what I want could be considered Love,
but it is what I want anyway.
Beauty in the dark, fragile heart, see the end from the start.
I don't ever think what you need could be considered me,
still you drop everything anyway.

Moose Blood - Orlando

The first verse is just great. Man, I love it when an artist conveys my "at one time" thoughts.



LYRICS:

As if I ever gave a fuck about all your dressing up
for all the boys who think they're cool
but then I never, ever thought about
taking anyone else home but you..

You've got your best shoes on
you're wearing too much perfume, it doesn't suit you
I like you better with just your t-shirt on.
You've got your best shoes on
you're wearing too much perfume, it doesn't suit you
I like you better with just my t-shirt on.

Move on over baby, you're not close enough for me girl
and we both know it's true
Move on over baby, I want your hands all over my stomach
your lips all over my chest and neck

The Hotelier - An Introduction To The Album

Love the passion. Listen to more of The Hotelier here: http://thehotelyear.bandcamp.com/



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Open the curtains.
Singing birds tell me "tear the buildings down."
You felt blessed to receive their pleasant sound.
The sound of things that break make you cringe inside yourself.
Inside yourself there's a child counting stars in their time-out.
In their time out of their day.
In the corners of their frame they are encased
in the losing of a grain
of themselves
pushed against the ebb and flow.
Wave good-bye and watch it go.

Well show me the honest/proper way
to disarm predatory gaze
that's sucking dry and never satiated.
You've been misused
been rewired.
You're short-circuiting now.
Just remember when you'd call me to come,
take a deep breath, and then jump.
So fragile are bodies,
so concave, work in self-destructive ways.

You shot from the hip and missed.
Detaching from all of this.
In physical pictures you remain,
spiral 'round yourself in figure-eight.
I recoil at every new beginning.

I searched for a way out.
Don't we all?
An existentialist recall:
turn in all dichotomies and truths that I gave.
I felt wrong in many ways.
It didn't heal.
It just got harder everyday to be still,
to be passing through the throes
in a daze,
feeling heavy,
feeling cold in my skin,
in my hand-me-downs.
I'm wearing everything thin.
And the pills that you gave didn't do anything.
I just slept for years on end.

So if I call,
should I beg?
Because I'm desperate here;
a couple steps from the edge.
I can't seem to burn bright enough.
I'm cold and I'm left alone.
We're all alone.
Grab a hold.
I know I said to not. What the fuck do I know?
I had a chance to construct something beautiful and I choked

Seahaven - Andreas (Acoustic Live)

I'm in love with this song. What do you think?



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Come to me, come to me. I'll be your friend.
Leave sitting alone at home with your open wrists that bleed all over.
It's been notable years (apart) now, but that's easy for me.
Maybe if I was not so vain, well maybe then I would have seen it.

You will find yourself in time; all it will take is some time.
Know that all that it will take is some time.
I am furthest from the sun, closest to roots of the tree.
You're not the only one under shade suffering.

You'll hate her forevermore, and you'll love her the same.
She'll never understand, because life seems to work that way.
The dark DNA intact leaves a stain in your brain.
And I am not all that you see, most of it you'd never want to be.

Enigma: deplete. I'm begging.
Priority: I'm learning.
All that is need; I will be.
Not enough time for trying.

All that you are is much more,
than what you call as your worth.
You're who this is for, you're foremost.
Don't you forget, I love you.

What Is Time? Is It Real?

Read this amazing article that will make you questions everything you thought you knew. Open your mind.



Everything exists in the present moment and it’s a fundamental principle of the Universe that many of our scientists are still trying to grasp. Time does not actually exist and Quantum Theory proves it. There are things that are closer to you in time, and things that are further away, just as there are things that are near or far away in space. But the idea that time flows past you is just as absurd as the suggestion that space does.

The trouble with time started a century ago, when Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity demolished the idea of time as a universal constant. One consequence is that the past, present, and future are not absolutes. Einstein’s theories also opened a rift in physics because the rules of general relativity (which describe gravity and the large-scale structure of the cosmos) seem incompatible with those of quantum physics (which govern the realm of the tiny).

According to Einstein’s special theory of relativity, there is no way to specify events that everyone can agree happen simultaneously. Two events that are both “now” to you will happen at different times for anyone moving at another speed. Other people will see a different now that might contain elements of yours – but equally might not.

The result is a picture known as the block universe: the universe seen from that impossible vantage point outside space and time. You can by all means mark what you think is “now” with a red dot, but there is nothing that distinguishes that place from any other, except that you are there. Past and future are no more physically distinguished than left and right.

The equations of physics do not tell us which events are occurring right now–they are like a map without the “you are here” symbol. The present moment does not exist in them, and therefore neither does the flow of time. Additionally, Albert Einstein’s theories of relativity suggest not only that there is no single special present but also that all moments are equally real.

Some four decades ago, the renowned physicist John Wheeler, then at Princeton, and the late Bryce DeWitt, then at the University of North Carolina, developed an extraordinary equation that provides a possible framework for unifying relativity and quantum mechanics. But the Wheeler-­DeWitt equation has always been controversial, in part because it adds yet another, even more baffling twist to our understanding of time.
Advertisements

“One finds that time just disappears from the Wheeler-DeWitt equation,” says Carlo Rovelli, a physicist at the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille, France. “It is an issue that many theorists have puzzled about. It may be that the best way to think about quantum reality is to give up the notion of time–that the fundamental description of the universe must be timeless.”

One might say that when we better understand consciousness we will better understand time. Consciousness is the formless, invisible field of energy of infinite dimension and potentiality, the substrate of all existence, independent of time, space, or location, of which it is independent yet all inclusive and all present. It encompasses all existence beyond all limitation, dimension, or time, and registers all events, no matter how seemingly miniscule, such as even a fleeting thought. The interrelationship between time and consciousness from the human perspective is limited, when in fact it is unlimited.

There Is No Such Thing As Time

Julian Barbour’s solution to the problem of time in physics and cosmology is as simply stated as it is radical: there is no such thing as time.

“If you try to get your hands on time, it’s always slipping through your fingers,” says Barbour. “People are sure time is there, but they can’t get hold of it. My feeling is that they can’t get hold of it because it isn’t there at all.” Barbour speaks with a disarming English charm that belies an iron resolve and confidence in his science. His extreme perspective comes from years of looking into the heart of both classical and quantum physics. Isaac Newton thought of time as a river flowing at the same rate everywhere. Einstein changed this picture by unifying space and time into a single 4-D entity. But even Einstein failed to challenge the concept of time as a measure of change. In Barbour’s view, the question must be turned on its head. It is change that provides the illusion of time. Channeling the ghost of Parmenides, Barbour sees each individual moment as a whole, complete and existing in its own right. He calls these moments “Nows.”

“As we live, we seem to move through a succession of Nows,” says Barbour, “and the question is, what are they?” For Barbour each Now is an arrangement of everything in the universe. “We have the strong impression that things have definite positions relative to each other. I aim to abstract away everything we cannot see (directly or indirectly) and simply keep this idea of many different things coexisting at once. There are simply the Nows, nothing more, nothing less.”

Barbour’s Nows can be imagined as pages of a novel ripped from the book’s spine and tossed randomly onto the floor. Each page is a separate entity existing without time, existing outside of time. Arranging the pages in some special order and moving through them in a step-by-step fashion makes a story unfold. Still, no matter how we arrange the sheets, each page is complete and independent. As Barbour says, “The cat that jumps is not the same cat that lands.” The physics of reality for Barbour is the physics of these Nows taken together as a whole. There is no past moment that flows into a future moment. Instead all the different possible configurations of the universe, every possible location of every atom throughout all of creation, exist simultaneously. Barbour’s Nows all exist at once in a vast Platonic realm that stands completely and absolutely without time.

Our illusion of the past arises because each Now contains objects that appear as “records” in Barbour’s language. “The only evidence you have of last week is your memory. But memory comes from a stable structure of neurons in your brain now. The only evidence we have of the Earth’s past is rocks and fossils. But these are just stable structures in the form of an arrangement of minerals we examine in the present. The point is, all we have are these records and you only have them in this Now.”

Time, in this view, is not something that exists apart from the universe. There is no clock ticking outside the cosmos. Most of us tend to think of time the way Newton did: “Absolute, true and mathematical time, of itself, and from its own nature, flows equably, without regard to anything external.” But as Einstein proved, time is part of the fabric of the universe. Contrary to what Newton believed, our ordinary clocks don’t measure something that’s independent of the universe.

The word “Mechanics” used in the term “Quantum Mechanics” indicates a machine like predictable, buildable, knowable thing. The Quantum Universe in which we live, whether we want to accept it or not, may seem on the surface to be mechanical and linear but it is not. It is probably better described as an infinite multitude of possible linear actions. If we must give this still mystical process a name lets call it “Quantum Ecology” rather than “Quantum Mechanics” because it is built from within it’s self. Everything comes out of the invisible in the same way as any living organism does.

In quantum mechanics all particles of matter and energy can also be described as waves. And waves have an unusual property: An infinite number of them can exist in the same location. If time and space are one day shown to consist of quanta, the quanta could all exist piled together in a single dimensionless point.

The current predominant world paradigm is that if a thing can not be explained, detailed, analyzed and documented by linear scientific thought processes then it’s mumbo jumbo. If you have a spiritual explanation for human existence then your crazy, you’re in dream land. The scientific mindset says everything in the universe must be capable of explanation either now or at some point in the future by scientific analytic methods alone. Science says “In the absence of scientific proof it’s not worth the time discussing. If it can not be put in a box with a label then forget it. Go figure out what box you can put it in, label it, then come back to us and we’ll see if we agree”. Can you see the limitations that this puts on human development?

Quantum particle behavior can not be explained in terms of science alone, that is to say, it can not be explained in terms of the mind because the mind by it’s nature functions on the basis that reality consists of things, things that can be broken down into individual bits of information and explained in a linear mechanical fashion. To realize how flawed this mindset is you must first accept that this is a relative world in which we live and on the conscious level we interact with other human beings and the rest of the universe in a linear fashion. This is the nature of the mind. We must go beyond the mind to access the answers.

According to physics, your life is described by a series of slices of your worm; you as a baby, you as you ate breakfast this morning, you as you started reading this sentence and so on, with each slice existing motionless in its respective time. We generate time’s flow by thinking that the same self that ate breakfast this morning also started reading this sentence.

So do we really need to mourn time’s passing? Einstein, for one, drew solace from the view of the timeless universe he had helped to create, consoling the family of a recently deceased friend: “Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

Moose Blood - I Hope You're Missing Me

Another great track from Moose Blood.



LYRICS:

Remember when you said you'd stay
But you left in January
Then you came home in May
Did you come back for me

I wish I could start over
Be the boy she didn't know
But I guess she'll always be the girl that I take home

Remember when you met my dad
In our old home
And the first night we spent together
I couldn't be alone

I wish that I could go back there
So you could get to know
All things I used to love before I left home

It takes me back to growing up
Those better days
The first girl that I kissed
And all those childish ways
We talked for months
I tried my luck
You finally gave in and girl you know how to fuck

It takes me back to growing up
Those better days
The first girl that I kissed
And all those childish ways
We talked for months
I tried my luck
You finally gave in and girl you know how to fuck

Have Trouble Falling Asleep? Try This

This works! I think it's the deep breathing that really helps. Give it a try.

How I Learned To Fall Asleep In Under 1 Minute
Byrdie
Sleepless and Stressed

It was the week before my best friend’s wedding, and my anxiety (nerves, plus excitement) had reached epic levels. I wasn’t sleeping, to say the least. Part of that had to do with the maid of honor speech I would be giving. I was terrified and could not shut my brain off to fall asleep at night.

After day three of lying awake until the wee hours of the night, I sheepishly admitted to her that I was too nervous to fall asleep, and she—the bride, who was sleeping like a baby the week before her own wedding—told me I needed to try the “4-7-8” breathing trick.

She happens to be a licensed wellness practitioner who studies meditation, stress, and breathing techniques, and told me it would change my life. You simply breathe in through your nose for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds, and exhale through your mouth for eight seconds. She explained that the studied combination of numbers has a chemical-like effect on our brains, and would slow my heart rate and soothe me right to sleep that night. “It works,” she told me. “It’s crazy.”

How it Works

I couldn’t wait to put the trick to the test, and to my complete disbelief, I woke up the next morning unable to even remember getting to the eighth second of the exhale because it knocked me out that fast. For the next four nights leading up to the big day, even as my stress increased, I was able to fall asleep the minute I tried the 4-7-8 trick. I also used it to relax in the moments leading up to the speech.

When you feel stressed or anxious, adrenaline courses through your veins, your heart beats at a rapid rate, and your breathing becomes quick and shallow. So before I get into the specifics behind how the 4-7-8 breathing trick works, I wanted to explain in my own words what it feels like when you try it. To me, the effect of the breathing technique feels almost like a sedative drug, because in order to hold your breath for seven seconds and then to exhale for eight—when your breath is so shallow and short—your body is forced to slow your heart rate. It has no choice. Holding your breath, and then slowly, deliberately exhaling for eight seconds, causes a chain reaction. It feels like going from a mad-dash sprint to a finish line to a slow, leisurely, calming stroll through the park.

When you first start, you’ll be desperate to just take in another breath, or you’ll want to speed up your counting, but if you stick to the numbers (or at least try to), and don’t take any breaks (in other words, consecutively repeat the 4-7-8 without resuming regular breathing), you can literally feel your heart rate slow down, your mind get quieter, and your whole body physically relax. It washes over you like a calming, relaxing drug. I can never remember getting past the first set of 4-7-8.

Do you know the feeling of being put under by anesthesia, where you are conscious, and the next thing you remember is waking up? That’s what this is like for me: As soon as I start the practice, the next thing I remember, I’m waking up in the morning and can’t even remember beginning the 4-7-8 count the night before. Crazy.

Now to the more technical details: People who are stressed or anxious are actually chronically under-breathing, because stressed people breathe shortly and shallowly, and often even unconsciously hold their breath. By extending your inhale to a count of four, you are forcing yourself to take in more oxygen, allowing the oxygen to affect your bloodstream by holding your breath for seven seconds, and then emitting carbon dioxide from your lungs by exhaling steadily for eight seconds. The technique will effectively slow your heart rate and increase oxygen in your bloodstream, and may even make you feel slightly lightheaded which contributes to the mild sedative-like effect. It will instantly relax your heart, mind, and overall central nervous system because you are controlling the breath versus continuing to breathe short, shallow gasps of air.

How it Can Work For You

Mindful breathing practices have been a part of yoga and Eastern wellness modalities for centuries, but aren’t as popular in Western culture. The most well-known champion of the 4-7-8 breathing technique in the U.S., who is somewhat responsible for the prevalence that the technique does have amongst integrative medicine practitioners, yogis, and those in search of stress reduction and overall relaxation, is Harvard-educated Dr. Andrew Weil.

Though I’m not promising or claiming (nor does Dr. Weil) that practicing this breathing technique can fight disease or provide clinical benefits, I can tell you one thing: If it affects you like it did me, it will help you fall asleep way faster. Not only is it free, it also works for a number of different instances. In addition to using it to fall asleep in a pinch, you can practice it if you wake up in the middle of the night and find yourself thinking about something you have to do the next day, in order to fall back asleep; if you are nervous before an event (like a wedding, or giving a speech); if you are angry about something and want to calm down. My friend (the bride-to-be who slept like a baby the week before her wedding), who gets nervous to fly, uses it before flights and during if the plane encounters turbulence.

It is now what I use to fall asleep every single night, and each morning, I’m amazed at how well it worked.

Why You Should Wear The Same Thing More Often. Simplicity

This will make it really easy for a lot of us. What do you think?



Have you ever thought about how much time you likely waste deciding what to wear in the morning? It’s probably made you late to school or work more times than you can count.

We waste so many precious moments concerning ourselves with frivolous details. An outfit will not change the world, it probably won’t even change your day.

This is not to say that fashion isn’t important, as it has an immense impact on culture and, in turn, the direction of society.

Indeed, fashion is where art, culture and history intersect. If we look at the 1960s, for example, the way people dressed was very much a reflection of the counterculture movement and the anti-establishment sentiments of the era.

Simply put, clothes can tell us a lot about sociology.

Yet, at the same time, we’ve arguably become an excessively materialistic and superficial society. Undoubtedly, there are greater things to worry about than clothes.

Similarly, as the great American author Henry David Thoreau once stated:

Our life is frittered away by detail.

…Simply, simplify.

In essence, don’t sweat the small stuff. Make your life easier by concentrating on the big picture.

Correspondingly, a number of very successful people have adopted this philosophy in their daily routines.
Decision Fatigue: Why Many Presidents And CEOs Wear The Same Thing Every Day

Whether you love or hate him, it’s hard to argue against the notion that President Obama has the most difficult job in the world. As the leader of the most powerful country on the planet, the president has a lot on his plate.

Regardless of what he does, he will be criticized. Simply put, he’s got a lot of important things to think about beyond his wardrobe.

This is precisely why President Obama wears the same suit every single day. Well, almost every day, we can’t forget about the time the Internet exploded when he wore a khaki suit. Although, that probably says less about him and more about us.

The majority of the time, however, Obama wears either a blue or gray suit. In an article from Michael Lewis for Vanity Fair, the president explained the logic behind this routine:

‘You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits’ [Obama] said.

‘I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.’ He mentioned research that shows the simple act of making decisions degrades one’s ability to make further decisions.

As Stuart Heritage puts it for the Guardian, “Barack Obama has pared his wardrobe down to such a degree that he can confidently walk into any situation and make decisions that directly impact on the future of mankind.”

The president is not alone in this practice. The late, great, Steve Jobs wore his signature black turtleneck with jeans and sneakers every single day.

Moreover, Mark Zuckerberg typically wears a gray t-shirt with a black hoody and jeans when seen in public. Similarly, Albert Einstein reportedly bought several variations of the same gray suit so that he wouldn’t have to waste time deciding what to wear each morning.

This is all related to the concept of decision fatigue. This is a real psychological condition in which a person’s productivity suffers as a result of becoming mentally exhausted from making so many irrelevant decisions.

Simply put, by stressing over things like what to eat or wear every day, people become less efficient at work.

This is precisely why individuals like President Obama, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Albert Einstein decided to make life easier by adopting a monotonous wardrobe.

Obviously, as these are some of the most successful and productive individuals in history, they are on to something.
Make Life Simple

Indeed, having a diverse collection of clothing is overrated. We waste so much time worrying about things that have no substantial consequences, and don’t even realize how easily we could change this.


The tie is a useless rag that constrains your neck.

I’m an enemy of consumerism. Because of this hyperconsumerism, we’re forgetting about fundamental things and wasting human strength on frivolities that have little to do with human happiness.

He’s absolutely right. The vast majority of us are guilty of obsessing over material things. When it comes down to it, they bring no real value to our lives. True fulfillment is acquired by going out into the world and fostering palpable and benevolent changes.

Buying a new pair of shoes might make you feel more confident in the short-term, but it will not enrich your life in the long-term.

Undoubtedly, the world would be an extremely boring place if we all wore the same exact thing every day.

Yet, we might all consider simplifying our lives a bit more by reducing the amount of time we spend thinking about pointless aspects of our day. In the process, one might find that they are significantly less stressed, more productive and more fulfilled.

Life is complicated enough, don’t allow the little things to dictate your happiness. Simplify, simplify.

Look What You Can Make With Wood Pallets. Impressive

If you are handy and want to save some money this is very impressive and a very smart idea.



Wooden pallets are generally considered to be junk, so it's usually possible to get them for free, or at least very cheap. Solid wood flooring, on the other hand, can be extremely expensive. This young family on a budget decided to take matters into their own hands. They were lucky enough to be given a load of hardwood pallets for free, and so they took the plunge and made their own wooden floors. The results are probably more awesome than you'd expect.

Here are all the pallets they collected. That's an impressive amount!


But, before they could be used, every nail had to be pulled out by hand. This is as long and arduous a task as it sounds. 

Once they'd all been pulled out, they were left with somewhere in the region of 9,000 nails! 


Now all the boards had to be loaded up and taken to be machined.


The boards were carefully worked on so that they were all of an even length, width and thickness, which means they'll look even when laid.

Here's the pile of finished boards. Even Fido's getting involved!


Here you can see them starting to be laid.

It looks as though the whole family pitched in to get things done. Kid's got talent!


Wow, looks good! But, it's not quite finished.

After a good varnish, the floors look amazing.

The varying hues of the wood makes the floor look unique. You'd never guess it was made out of old pallets!
