    "What a wonderful world" (Louis Armstrong, performed by)

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
    They're really saying I love you
    I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll never know
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

    Remember When by Alan Jackson.
    Remember when I was young and so were you
    And time stood still and love was all we knew
    You were the first, so was I
    We made love and then you cried
    Remember when
    Remember when we vowed the vows and walked the walk
    Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
    We lived and learned, life threw curves
    There was joy, there was hurt
    Remember when
    Remember when old ones died and new were born
    And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
    We came together, fell apart
    And broke each other's hearts
    Remember when
    Remember when the sound of little feet
    Was the music we danced to week to week
    Brought back the love, we found trust
    Vowed we'd never give it up
    Remember when
    Remember when thirty seemed so old
    Now lookin' back, it's just a steppin' stone
    To where we are, where we've been
    Said we'd do it all again
    Remember when
    Remember when we said when we turned gray
    When the children grow up and move away
    We won't be sad, we'll be glad
    For all the life we've had
    And we'll remember when
    Remember when
    Remember when

    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
    Would you hear my voice come through the music
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?

    It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
    Perhaps they're better left unsung
    I don't know, don't really care
    Let there be songs to fill the air

    Ripple in still water
    When there is no pebble tossed
    Nor wind to blow

    Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
    If your cup is full may it be again
    Let it be known there is a fountain
    That was not made by the hands of men

    There is a road, no simple highway
    Between the dawn and the dark of night
    And if you go no one may follow
    That path is for your steps alone

    Ripple in still water
    When there is no pebble tossed
    Nor wind to blow

    You who choose to lead must follow
    But if you fall you fall alone
    If you should stand then who's to guide you?
    If I knew the way I would take you home

    I pictured a rainbow
    You held it in your hands
    I had flashes
    But you saw the plan
    I wandered out in the world for years
    While you just stayed in your room
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon

    You were there at the turnstiles
    With the wind at your heels
    You stretched for the stars
    And you know how it feels
    To reach too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon

    I was grounded
    While you filled the skies
    I was dumbfounded by truths
    You cut through lies
    I saw the rain-dirty valley
    You saw Brigadoon
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon

    I spoke about wings
    You just flew
    I wondered, I guessed and I tried
    You just knew
    I sighed
    But you swooned
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon

    With a torch in your pocket
    And the wind at your heels
    You climbed on the ladder
    And you know how it feels
    To get too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon

    Unicorns and cannonballs
    Palaces and piers
    Trumpets, towers, and tenements
    Wide oceans full of tears
    Flags, rags, ferry boats
    Scimitars and scarves
    Every precious dream and vision
    Underneath the stars

    Yes, you climbed on the ladder
    With the wind in your sails
    You came like a comet
    Blazing your trail
    Too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon

    If you're just staring at your walls
    Observing echoing footfalls
    From tenants wandering distant halls
    Then this one is for you
    If children playing all around
    To you is noise not pleasant sound
    And you'd be lost on the playground
    Then this one is for you
    All alone the life you lead
    A silent diner where you feed
    Bow your head pretend to read
    This one is for you
    Slip past strangers in the street
    There's no one that you care to meet
    Longing for your TV seat
    This one is for you

    When I was just a baby, my mother told me Son,
    Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns.
    But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

    If I went to Washington
    To Capitol Hill
    I'd go before Congress
    And pass a bill
    If a bitch takes your money
    And fucks all your friends
    You get the legal right
    To beat the shit out of them

    They say the devil's water it ain't so sweet
    You don't have to drink right now
    But you can dip your feet
    Every once in a little while

    Breathe out
    So I can breathe you in
    Hold you in
    And now
    I know you've always been
    Out of your head
    Out of my head I sang

    I use to worry about what people thought about me…
    Now, I couldn’t care less as you can plainly see…
    They said I was stupid, they said I was strange…
    Maybe I am, but I’ll never change.
    The world may not like me, but that’s okay…
    There’s only one thing, I’ve got to say…


    F’ Everybody! - F’ Everybody!

    They talk about me…
    A bunch of dirty lies.
    Then, they laughed at me till they made me cry…
    But now they can all just kiss my A**
    ‘cause I found myself, and I’m such a gas!
    The world may not like me, but that’s okay…
    There’s only one thing, I’ve got to say…


    F’ Everybody! - F’ Everybody!

    I went the side-man route, lord knows how I tried…
    I kissed a lot of a** and lost a lot of pride…
    No matter how much you give them, they’re never satisfied…
    The only way to please ‘em is to commit suicide.


    They slandered my name, said I was a fool…
    But they were just jealous, because I’m so cool!
    I’m ahead of my time, I’m a renaissance man.
    If I make you look bad, well I don’t give a damn…
    The world may not like me, but that’s okay…
    There’s only one thing, I’ve got to say…


    F’ Everybody! - F’ Everybody!
    F’ Everybody! - F’ Everybody!


    Kiss my a**…

    You can dream a little dream
    Or you can live a little dream
    I'd rather live it
    'cause dreamers always chase
    But never get it

    The Slums of Shaolin
    Between The Bars by Eliot Smith

    Drink up, baby, stay up all night
    With the things you could do, you won't but you might
    The potential you'll be that you'll never see
    The promises you'll only make
    Drink up with me now and forget all about
    The pressure of days, do what I say
    And I'll make you okay and drive them away
    The images stuck in your head
    People you've been before that you
    Don't want around anymore
    That push and shove and won't bend to your will
    I'll keep them still
    Drink up, baby, look at the stars
    I'll kiss you again, between the bars
    Where I'm seeing you there, with your hands in the air
    Waiting to finally be caught
    Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
    Keep you apart, deep in my heart
    Separate from the rest, where I like you the best
    And keep the things you forgot
    People you've been before that you
    Don't want around anymore
    That push and shove and won't bend to your will
    I'll keep them still

    Winded is the sailor...drifting by the storm...
    Wounded is the organ he left all...bloodied on the shore...
    Gorgeous was his savior sees her...drowning in his wake...
    Daily taste the salt of her tears but...a chance blamed fate...
    Little secrets tremors...turned to quake...
    The smallest oceans still get...big big waves...
    Ransom paid the Devil...He whispers pleasing words...
    Triumphant are the angels if they can...a get there first...
    Little secrets tremors...turned to quake...
    The smallest oceans still get...big, big waves...
    I'll decide...take the dive...
    Take my time...not my life...
    Wait for signs...believe in lies...
    To get by...it's divine...whoa...
    Oh, you know what it's like...
    Turns the bow back, tows and...drops the line...
    Puts his faith and love in tremor Christ...

    Morrissey lyrics do it for me

    Hand in glove
    The sun shines out of our behinds
    No, it's not like any other love
    This one is different-because it's us
    Hand in glove
    We can go wherever we please
    And everything depends upon
    How near you stand to me
    And if the people stare
    Then the people stare
    I really don't know and I really don't care
    Hand in glove
    The good people laugh
    Yes, we may be hidden by rags
    But we have something they'll never have
    So, hand in glove I stake my claim
    I'll fight to the last breath
    If they dare touch a hair on your head
    I'll fight to the last breath
    The good life is out there, somewhere
    So stay on my arm, you little charmer
    But I know my luck too well
    And I'll probably never see you again.

    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    And as I climb into an empty bed
    Oh well. Enough said.
    I know it's over - still I cling
    I don't know where else I can go
    Oh...
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    See, the sea wants to take me
    The knife wants to slit me
    Do you think you can help me?
    Sad veiled bride, please be happy
    Handsome groom, give her room
    Loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly
    (Though she needs you
    More than she loves you)
    And I know it's over - still I cling
    I don't know where else I can go
    Over and over and over and over
    Over and over, la...
    I know it's over
    And it never really began
    But in my heart it was so real
    And you even spoke to me, and said :
    "If you're so funny
    Then why are you on your own tonight ?
    And if you're so clever
    Then why are you on your own tonight ?
    If you're so very entertaining
    Then why are you on your own tonight ?
    If you're so very good-looking
    Why do you sleep alone tonight ?
    I know...
    'Cause tonight is just like any other night
    That's why you're on your own tonight
    With your triumphs and your charms
    While they're in each other's arms..."
    It's so easy to laugh
    It's so easy to hate
    It takes strength to be gentle and kind
    Over, over, over, over
    It's so easy to laugh
    It's so easy to hate
    It takes guts to be gentle and kind
    Over, over
    Love is natural and real
    But not for you, my love
    Not tonight, my love
    Love is natural and real
    But not for such as you and I, my love
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my ...
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can even feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
    Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my...

    I would rather not go
    Back to the old house
    I would rather not go
    Back to the old house
    There's too many
    Bad memories
    Too many memories
    There...
    There...
    There...
    When you cycled by
    Here began all my dreams
    The saddest thing I've ever seen
    And you never knew
    How much I really liked you
    Because I never even told you
    Oh, and I meant to
    Are you still there ?
    Or...have you moved away ?
    Or have you moved away ?
    Oh...
    I would love to go
    Back to the old house
    But I never will
    I never will...
    I never will...
    I never will...

    [Verse 1: Sadistik]
    Just because I'm absent minded doesn't mean I have to find it
    It's my pity-party darling please don't act invited
    I sip Bacardi just to pass the time when
    It gets me started for the clash of titans just past my eyelids

    I'm not a downer in the kill the party market
    But I swallowed all my pride and yet I'm still a starving artist
    And still I'm finding parts of all my silly life departures
    Parts of darkness are so thrilling but it's filling my apartment

    So please for forgive me if I overstep my boundaries
    I keep forgetting that there's no one left to count on me
    At least I'm living on my own and get a founder's fee
    I'm out to see and drifting off that melatonin sound asleep

    Wait up all alone just to dream away the time
    Weight upon my collarbones don't seem to pay no mind

    The day the world died I didn't even say goodbye
    I left a love letter in a secret place to hide that said
    I'd give concern but I'm a disconcerted immature kid
    Insecure when I am quickly searching for a bridge to burn it
    If I twist and turn until the blisters hurt it isn't worth it
    If it's served with sense of urgency to see me binge and purge it

    I've lived and learned and learned to live to misinterpret nervous twitches
    Pistons turning hurt to bliss it's picture perfect
    And since I've learned a circus trick of inadvertent perfect-pitch
    To skim a surface worse than this I'm in to get deserted, when I ask


    [Poem: Czeslaw Milosz]
    On the day the world ends
    A bee circles a clover
    A fisherman mends a glimmering net
    By the rainspout young sparrows are playing
    And the snake is gold-skinned as it should always be

    On the day the world ends
    Women walk through the fields under their umbrellas
    A drunkard grows sleepy at the edge of a lawn
    Vegetable peddlers shout in the street
    And a yellow-sailed boat comes nearer the island
    The voice of a violin lasts in the air
    And leads into a starry night

    [Verse 2: Sadistik]
    I get less comfortable with each breath stomach full of regrets
    Each step's becoming part of running as a reflex
    Pretend tell me something that relives stress
    Sleepless I'd rather suffocate my weakness
    I'm David Cronenberg mixed with David Lynch stir
    David Berkowitz and a little David Fincher

    They say I mince words that can paint a picture
    Honest and true yes
    long live the new flesh
    And I'm impatiently waiting to find a day that needs saving
    I say the things that can make me seem crazy
    I chase my dreams like I chase my drinks daily

    I fall asleep to my existential woes
    And the questions with the answers that'll never get exposed

    I'm not too good with the mental episodes
    But about as sharp as it can get with pen or pencils though

    Evidence is shown in the sentimental prose
    Posing pros and cons to poking on this detrimental road
    I chose to walk walk walk on sediment and stone
    Don't confuse my temperament as being reticent or cold
    Just let me vent


    [Poem outro: Czeslaw Milosz]
    And those who expected lightning and thunder
    Are disappointed

    And those who expected signs and archangels' trumps
    Will not believe it is happening now

    As long as the sun and the moon are above
    As long as the bumblebee visits a rose
    As long as rosy infants are born
    No one believes it is happening now
