"Everyone pick a song, listen to it, type up (or look up) the lyrics, and post'em. I want to know how you're feeling, show me with some music. I don't care if you're depressed, angsty, horny... it doesn't matter. You can post more than one, and even edit (adding, but don't get rid of any) as the week rolls on, or post them in a new entry. Show me!"

And the song:
"Come Talk To Me"

The wretched desert takes its form, the jackal proud and tight
In search of you, I feel my way, though the slowest heaving night
Whatever fear invents, I swear it make no sense
I reach through the border fence
Come down, come talk to me

In the swirling, curling storm of desire unuttered words hold fast
With reptile tongue, the lightning lashes towers built to last
Darkness creeps in like a thief and offers no relief
Why are you shaking like a leaf
Come on, come talk to me

Ah please talk to me
Won't you please talk to me
We can unlock this misery
Come on, come talk to me

[Chorus 1:]
I did not come to steal
This all is so unreal
Can't you show me how you feel now
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

The earthly power sucks shadowed milk from sleepy tears undone
From nippled skin as smooth as silk the bugles blown as one
You lie there with your eyes half closed like there's no-one there at all
There's a tension pulling on your face
Come on, come talk to me

Won't you please talk to me
If you'd just talk to me
Unblock this misery
If you'd only talk to me

[Chorus 2:]
Don't you ever change your mind
Now your future's so defined
And you act so deaf and blind
(And you act so deaf so blind)
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

I can imagine the moment
Breaking out through the silence
All the things that we both might say
And the heart it will not be denied
'Til we're both on the same damn side
All the barriers blown away

I said please talk to me
Won't you please come talk to me
Just like it used to be
Come on, come talk to me
I did not come to steal
This all is so unreal
Can you show me how you feel now
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

I said please talk to me
If you'd just talk to me
Unblock this misery
If you'd only talk to me
[Chorus 2]


  • Drunk Daddy
    Cherry Poppin' Daddies

    Momma married a big asshole
    Whiskey bottles on the floor
    He just keeps on watchin' t.v.
    Stepchild tired of being poor
    Kitchen smells like rotten garbage
    I can't chew my food my face is sore
    Momma didn't come home last evening
    Neighbors say that she's a whore
    Some folks never want for nothin'
    I'm a worn out hand be down
    Stupid rich kid gets me angry
    Lord, I'm gonna cut him down
    Now I'm grown up same old story
    At 21 I fell in love
    She left me just like the others
    Jesus why'd you curse my love?

    Drunk daddy broke my fingers
    Drunk Daddy done kicked my head
    Drunk Daddy smashed my sister
    Turned my whole world red (blood red)

    I haul the burden for the high and mighty
    But I'm the top hat Devil's son
    I got the luck of the drunk, try an' nail me
    I'm the bullseye - aim your gun
    Yesterday they shook your hand boy
    Now they're gonna stab your back
    I can hear their sickening laughter
    Sneakin' like a Siamese cat
    Back stage in the club bathroom
    A graven image on the wall
    I'm about to get my vengeance
    Lights go out in the hall
    You gotta move fast to beat the devil
    You arm is too short to box with God
    Big shadow in the doorway
    He's not going to spare the rod (so get out)

    Drunk daddy broke my fingers
    Drunk daddy done kicked my head
    Drunk daddy smashed my sister
    Turned my whole world red (blood red)

    he's coming up the stairs
    he's got that thing in his hand
    no dad, don't, leave me alone
    no, no daddy don't
    he's coming up the stairs
    he's got that thing in his hand
    okay, dad you can beat me but you'll never beat me
