APOCALYPTICAL TATTOOING BY PAUL CLAVÉ

lyrics

hands up who wants to die!

warming the damp and rotten seed
warming the damp and rotten seed
that blooms into the demon flower
now both fire and flowers consume me…

 

(exert from Sonny’s Burning by The Birthday Party)

Black smoke rise and fill the blood red skies…

Black smoke rise and fill the blood red skies

Man made dust designed to blind our eyes

Screened illusions masked in blatant lies

Black smoke rise and fill the blood read skies.

Black smoke cloak the mother’s weeping cries

Store the pain inside your vast device

Hide the truth behind your blatant lies

Black smoke rise and fill the blood red skies.

Tears of pain can never purify the rust of years gone by

We’re the ones who tell the sun to shine

Tell the rain to pour

To keep your broken mind on the fray…



(lyrics from On The Fray by From Ashes Rise)



the beauty of sorrow…

Is it true what I heard about the Son of God?

did He come to save?

did He come at all?

and if I dried His feet

with my dirty hair

would He make me clean again?

I don’t know when but a day is gonna come

when there won’t be a moon

and there won’t be a sun

it will all go black

it will all go back

to the way it is supposed to be.

Is it true what they say about the Son of God?

did He die for us?

did He die at all?

and if I sold my soul

for a bag of gold to you

which one of us would be the foolish one?

(lyrics by Bright Eyes)


Another World by Antony & the Johnsons

I need another place
Will there be peace
I need another world
This one’s nearly gone
Still have too many dreams
Never seen the light
I need another world
A place where I can go
I’m gonna miss the sea
I’m gonna miss the snow
I’m gonna miss the bees
I miss the things that grow
I’m gonna miss the trees
I’m gonna miss the sun
I miss the animals
I’m gonna miss you all
I need another place
Will there be peace
I need another world
This one’s nearly gone
I’m gonna miss the birds
Singing all there songs
I’m gonna miss the wind
Been kissing me so long
Another world
Another world
Another world
Another world


New Dawn Fades by Joy Division

A change of speed, a change of style

A change of scene with no regrets,

A chance to watch, admire the distance
Still occupied though you forget.

Different colours, different shades,
Over each mistakes were made
I took the blame
Directionless so plain to see
A loaded gun won’t set you free
So you say.

We’ll share a drink and step outside
An angry voice and one who cried
”We’ll give you everything and more
The strain’s too much, can’t take much more.”
I’ve walked on water, run through fire
Can’t seem to feel it anymore.

It was me

Waiting for me
Hoping for something more

Me

Seeing me this time
Hoping for something else…


dead flag blues

the car’s on fire and there’s no driver at the wheel

and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides

and a dark wind blows

the government is corrupt

and we’re on so many drugs

with the radio on and the curtains drawn

we’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine

and the machine is bleeding to death

the sun has fallen down

and the billboards are all leering

and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles

it went like this:

the buildings tumbled in on themselves

mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble

and pulled out their hair

the skyline was beautiful on fire

all twisted metal stretching upwards

everything washed in a thin orange haze

i said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful –

these are truly the last days”

you grabbed my hand and we fell into it

like a daydream or a fever

we woke up one morning and fell a little further down

for sure it’s the valley of death

i open up my wallet

and it’s full of blood


Hang on to Each Other by Silver Mt. Zion

We all got born so afraid

And still search for words

To describe that pain

And cling to each other

Like pigeons in the rain

And nuzzle over feathered breast

With beaks all worn and cracked and stained

Hang on to each other

So this one’s for the lost ones

And the dead ones

And the ones who fell away

All our busted brothers

And tumbled lovers

Spitting at the rain

We all got born so afraid

And still search for words

To describe that pain

Hang on to each other

Any fucking thing you love

Birds toss precious flowers

From the murky skies above
