Absolution- Sadistik

I write in long hand a short-term memory
Hopeless romantic, coarse word tendencies
Right now I don't want to wake up
Or try to forget when the storm first entered me
Lately I've felt self destructive
Self-inflicted, self help the cuts with
Shell shocked, Hell's bells and trumpets
Self-taught to tell tales in public
Of this life, same shit but different day
I write it down, same shit in different ways
Fight it now, break fists against the cage
Until I climb on that slave ship and drift away
My blood boils (in cups) the sun spoils (abrupt)
And unloyal (with love) so come toil (with us)
The sun freezes (and cuts) in some seasons (and plus)
Its untreated (so trust) I'm done bleeding
In a place where I can be and touch all of the things I see
To find my peace and I can breathe with nobody looking back at me
I'll just take a breath and place my bets but never deal
'Til I face my death with a game of chess like Seventh Seal
I'll still fight the step-dads and memories
Scream Zion 'til deaf dance to melodies
Deadpanned with setbacks and jealousy
Until hea-ven ex-pands the hell in me
Acquired conscious competence of all of my accomplishments
And conquered constant comments that contradicted my confidence
Common compliments were called upon to con me in
Accosted consonant comments that condescended all my common sense
Where I'm from, no one stays alive
You just die by the sword, a shogun's frame of mind
Walk with the rest like its Dawn of the Dead
And drink from the blood that the open veins provide
My raps are like a novel with clever style and prose
Im Edgar Allan Poe, the Casque of Amontillado
Enter catacombs 'til clever palindromes
And letters that I wrote can capture the god Apollo


Hear the secret stammers time'll tell
I rebel, they teach me manners with a Bible-belt
Schtick, psychedelic, dreams of banter
Scenes of candor I embellish
Like a zombie that eats through tissue
Until I find a heart with a beat to spit to
If its not in the meat I sift through
I'll write it acapella on the piece I bit through
I'm savage, and its near the dead of night
Wait 'til the sun paints an iridescent sky
To head the deadened cries
Of an old boy given no choice but to fear the present time

Take the reigns, I'm sick and tired of the practice
Of burnin' bridges, I lit the fire with a matchstick
Return the image to where I'm at, cus thinking back
I've been sinking fast, and tripping wires where the sands quick
Across plains with bloody palms and jaw pains
Hiding from God's grace in fright like its Pompeii
And always, I'll just stay on the lost road
While you study crucifixes painted with barcodes
And this time, I'll just try my luck
Surrounded by these masks like it's eyes wired shut
And I might jump ship or I flip like it's my live bus
So I try trust with how it was or how it is when
Frowns insist sounds of love amount to this
Too proud to kiss so I sewed my lips shut
So love drowned within the open wrist cuts
At first its just a ride to live fast
Until I felt the bruises inside from whiplash
A purpose, I'll try to get that
Until I fall from grace and I die on impact
And intact was a single broken locket
With the ocean on its rustic chain and face that no one wanted
I'm growing nauseous from a world that never stops
When my center's lost hope in the ghost that haunted Pentecost
I stand in graveyards and dance to take charge
Of concepts of death that I have to base on
Even when my bones crack I'll pace on
Through the epitaphs that my pasts engraved on
Laugh and stay strong, embrace the day
'Till it fades away with this mask I paint on


She's probably just a bitch that's casting all the shadows
Laughing at my battles and following a trend
Searching for an angel at the bottom of a fifth
But my hands stay empty, I swallow it again
Its the loss of leaves that autumn brings
That show me these limbs are far from wings
I'm far from happy, you're far from peace
I'll fall from grace and you'll fall for me
And awkwardly I'll just change my posture
'Till the aches and pains rearrange the monsters

Lydia
Highly Suspect
Black ocean, cold and dark
I am the hungry shark, fast and merciless
But the only girl that could talk to him just couldn't swim
Tell me what's worse than this
And it echoes in the halls
They danced along the walls
The memories of your ghost
You are the one that I used to love
And I'm still in love, but I've never loved you the most

I've seen better days
So unafraid in my youth
I can't breathe, much less believe

You're getting everything you had
Every little thing you had
I'm gonna run repairs
I've seen your fucking worst
And at your worst, you're still the best
But at my best, I am the worst
It's a curse
Your eyes are lined in pain
Black tears don't hide in rain
And I tied you to the tracks
When I turned around, I heard the sound
I hit the ground, I know there's no turning back

I've seen better days
So unafraid in my youth
I can't breathe, much less believe the truth
Better days, so unafraid in my youth
I can't breathe, much less believe the truth

Black ocean, cold and dark
I am the hungry shark, fast and merciless
But the only girl that could talk to him, she couldn't swim
Tell me what's worse than this
What's worse is all the coke
The ice that numbs my throat if only for the night
My muscles will contract, your bones will crack
It's just a fact 'cause I am here to win this fight

I can't fucking breathe, much less believe the truth
I pick up a mag, aim for this head, and shoot
Better days, so unafraid in my youth
I can't breathe or believe the truth

Your eyes are lined in pain
Black tears don't hide in rain
And I tied you to the tracks
When I turned around, I heard that sound

"Mother Mary" Badflower

Know I've got you alone
And I'm watching you quiver
Barely clothed
Tied up in ropes
Just like in the movies

So much blood on these sheets
And you're begging me please
Shame on me
I never knew
That I was a killer

Mother Mary
I've been bad
And now I've lost control
Please forgive the life I've had
And find me love in Hell

I want to mangle your heart
Finest blade from the kitchen
Razor sharp
Cut you real deep
Just like you did me

Mother Mary
I've been bad
And now I've lost control
Please forgive the life I've had
And find me love in Hell

Where no one knows me
Or what I've done
Oh Mother Mary
Find me love

When the damage done
I'll stay close to your body
Safe and sound
Holding a gun
And playing with the trigger
All alone

Mother Mary
I've been bad
And now I've lost control
Please forgive the live I've had
And find me love in Hell

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here

Missing
Everything but the Girl


I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And past your door, but you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
Now you've disappeared somewhere, like outer space
You've found some better place
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead, of everyone
We'd walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout down to me
Where I always used to be
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
Back on the train, I ask why did I come again?
Can I confess, I've been hanging round your old address?
And the years have proved
To offer, nothing since you've moved
You're long gone, but I can't move on
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you
I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And past your door, I guess you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere, like outer space
You've found some better place
And I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you, yeah
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you, and I miss you
Like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you, yeah
Like the deserts miss the rain
The deserts miss the rain
Like the deserts miss the rain
Like the deserts miss the rain
Like the deserts miss the rain

Till You Come To Me
Spencer Day


A sleepless night in the city
No peace and quiet's in the city
It's hotter than the water from a boiler in the basement of hell
In this low rent walk of broken down hotel

Countin' the cracks on the ceiling
Flat on my back and I'm feeling
Lower than the roaches in the tunnels of the one and the nine
And the clock says that I'm half past losing my mind

Through the tick-tock-tick
I can hear the faucet drip
When the neighbors brawl
I can hear them through the wall
But I'm waiting
I keep waiting

Cause I want you
I want you back again
I can't remember when
You and I were one
And I want to
I want to change your mind
So I'm gonna bide my time
Bearin' my misery
Till you come to me

High noon, same room, this is when it
Gets so suffocating. The air sits
Heavy like the weight of my regret forever letting you go
And it don't matter whether the windows are open or closed

There's a beep-beep-beep
From the traffic in the street
And a bang-bang-bang
Like a hammer in my brain
As I'm fading
Going crazy

Cause I want you
I want you back again
I can't remember when
You and I were one
And I want to
I want to change your mind
So I'm gonna bide my time
Bearin' my misery
Till you come to me

Cause I want you
I want you back again
I can't remember when
You and I were one
And I want to
I want to change your mind
So I'm gonna bide my time
Bearin' my misery
Till you come to me

Hey

Just you wait and see
You'll come back to me
Just you wait and see
You'll come back to me
Oh no no
Just you wait and see
You'll come back to me
Baby, just you wait and see
You'll come back to me

A girl like you- Kevon Edmonds

Every night before I sleep
I thank the Lord for givin' me another day
So I can be with you
'Cause I ain't never seen a face
So beautiful in every way
I can't believe that I'm here with you

And I cry-y-y 'cause I-I'm so in love
'Cause you don't know what it means to me to finally find someone
I was searchin' for the perfect girl, the woman of my dreams
And now she is in love with me

And even though I've been around the world
Never did I find a girl
That makes me feel the way you know you do
And even though love has been kind to me
Never did I dream
I would find me a girl like you

Da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Ooh,yeah

When I'm makin' love to you
I call your name, that's what I do
So you won't have no reservations and
That you're the only one for me
My heart is yours and, girl, that is for eternity
You know we make the perfect combination

And I cry-y-y 'cause I-I can't believe
'Cause you just don't know the half of it
Or what it means to me
To have finally found the perfect girl
The angel of my dreams
And now she is in love with me

And even though I've been around the world
Never did I find a girl
That makes me feel the way you know you do {You know you do}
And even though love has been kind to me
Never did I dream
I would find me a {Me a girl, me a girl, me a girl} girl like you

Da-da-da-da-no-no
(Da-da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da-no

You're only the best thing, girl {Ooh, little baby}
That ever happened in my life {That ever happened in my life}
You are my angel {Yeah}
The angel and the apple of my eye

And even though I've been around the world
Never did I find a girl
That makes me feel the way you know you do {You know you do}
And even though {Even though} love has been kind to me
Never did I dream
I would find me a girl {Find me a girl, me a girl, me a girl}, oh, ooh, no

And even though I've been around the world ('Round the world)
Never did I find a girl {Find a girl} (Oh)
That make me feel the way you know you do {You know you do}
And even though {Even though} love has been kind to me
Never did I dream
I would find me a girl (Find me, find me, find me a girl like you)

Ah-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da
Da
Baby
A girl like you

sometimes love just ain`t enough

There's a reason why people don't stay where they are
Baby sometimes love just ain't enough

Now I could never change you
I don't wanna blame you
Baby you don't have to take the fall
Yes I may have hurt you
But I did not desert you
Maybe I just wanna have it all
It makes a sound like thunder
It makes me feel like rain
And like a fool who will never see the truth
I keep thinking something's gonna change

But there's a danger in loving somebody too much
And it's sad when you know it's your heart you can't trust
There's a reason why people don't stay where they are
Baby sometimes love just ain't enough

And there's no way home
When it's late at night and you're all alone
Are there things that you wanted to say
Do you feel me beside you in your bed
There beside you where I used to lay

And there's a danger in loving somebody too much
And it's sad when you know it's your heart they can't touch.
There's a reason why people don't stay who they are
Cause baby sometimes love just ain't enough.
Baby sometimes love just ain't enough.

This is lyrically the best song ever written in the history of music. FIGHT ME

Alex Turner's It's Hard to Get Around the Wind
It's like you're trying to get to heaven in a hurry
And the queue was shorter than you thought it'd be
And the doorman says, "You need to get a wristband"
You've got to live between the pitfalls
But you're looking like you're low on energy
Did you get out and walk to ensure you'd miss the quicksand?

[Chorus]
Looking for a new place to begin
Feeling like it's hard to understand
But as long as you still keep peppering the pill
You'll find a way to spit it out again
And even when you know the way it's gonna blow
It's hard to get around the wind

[Verse 2]
Stretching out the neck on your evening
Trying to even out some deficit
But it's sabre-tooth multi-ball confusion
And you can shriek until you're hollow
Or whisper it the other way
Trying to save the youth without putting your shoes on

[Chorus]
Looking for a new place to begin
Feeling like it's hard to understand
Well, as long as you still keep peppering the pill
You'll find a way to spit it out again
And even when you know the way it's gonna blow
It's hard to get around the wind

[Verse 3]
I can hear you through my window
But I'm never quite sure who is who
But they want the world on a dessert spoon
It always sounds like they're fighting
Or as if that's what they're about to do
It might not hurt now but it's going to hurt soon

This is Gospel (Panic!AtTheDisco)
This is gospel for the fallen ones
Locked away in permanent slumber
Assembling their philosophies
From pieces of broken memories
Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
The gnashing teeth and criminal tongues conspire against the odds
But they haven’t seen the best of us yet
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
‘Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours
The fear, the fear of falling apart
Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
This is gospel for the vagabonds,
Ne’er-do-wells, insufferable bastards
Confessing their apostasies
Led away by imperfect impostors
Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
Don’t try to sleep through the end of the world
Bury me alive
'Cause I won’t give up without a fight
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
‘Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
The fear of falling apart
And truth be told, I never was yours
The fear, the fear of falling apart

Choke - I Don't Know How But They Found Me
Stop, drop
And drag me into place
And lock the fire escapes
I'll break your pretty face
(Yeah, yeah)
Oh, you clever little things
The sycophantic teens
What a precious basket case
(Yeah, yeah)
Now shut your dirty mouth
If I could burn this town
I wouldn't hesitate
To smile while you suffocate and die
And that would be just fine
And what a lovely time
That it would surely be
So bite your tongue
And choke yourself to sleep
(Yeah, yeah)
You get everything you want
And money always talks
To the idiot savants
(Yeah, yeah)
Now shut your dirty mouth
If I could burn this town
I wouldn't hesitate
To smile while you suffocate and die
And that would be just fine
And what a lovely time
That it would surely be
So bite your tongue
And choke yourself to sleep
Now shut your dirty mouth
If I could burn this town
I wouldn't hesitate
To smile while you suffocate and die
And that would be just fine, oh!
And what a lovely time
That it would surely be
So bite your tongue
And choke yourself

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him, to listen for a while
And there he was, this young boy, a stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever, embarassed by the crowd
I felt he'd found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish, but he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly

He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me as if I wasn't there
But he was there, this stranger, singing clear and loud

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song


Yes! One of my favorites
