Kohoutek
R.E.M.
Fables Of The Reconstruction

Who will stand alone?

She carried ribbons; she wore them out

Courage built a bridge,
jealous tore it down

At least it's something you've left behind

(and like Kohoutek, you were gone)

We sat in the garden, we stood on the porch.

I won't deny myself. We never talked.

She wore bangles, she wore bells on her toes
when she jumped like a fish

Like a flying fish, you were gone.

Like Kohoutek, I can't forget that

Fever built a bridge, reason tore it down

If I am one to follow, who will stand alone?

Maybe you're not the problem
scissors, paper, stone

If you stand and holler, these prayers will talk

She carried ribbons, she wore them out

Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down

At least it's something you've left behind

Like Kohoutek, you were gone

Michael built a bridge, Michael tore it down

If I stand and holler, will I stand alone?

Death of a Disco Dancer
The Smiths
The death of a disco dancer
Well, it happens a lot 'round here
And if you think Peace
Is a common goal
That goes to show
How little you know
The death of a disco dancer
Well, I'd rather not get involved
I never talk to my neighbour
I'd rather not get involved
Oh
Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
But maybe in the next world
Love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
But maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
Oh, love, peace and harmony?
Love, peace and harmony?
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Oh, but maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
(In the next world, in the next world, in the next world)
(In the next world, in the next world, in the next world)
The next world, the next world
Oh
The death of a disco dancer
The death of a disco dancer
The death of a disco dancer

Ammunition
Morrissey
I know these roads
Each ridge
And narrow bridge
Each chevron
Enticing me on
Each warning sign
I take in my stride
I don't need more ammunition
I've got more than I can spend
I don't dwell on things I'm missing
I'm just pleased
With the things I've found
I know these roads
An old hand understands
Above all, I know what's
Expected of me now
Veering cliffwards
I don't need more ammunition
I've got more than I can spend
I don't dwell on things I'm missing
I'm just pleased
With the things I've found
With the things I've found
With the things I've found
I've found
I've been crying
It comes back on these salient days
And it stays
And it says :
"We've never really been away"
I don't need more ammunition
I've got more than I can spend
I don't think of who I'm missing
I've got no space and no time
In my life, anymore
No space or time
In my life, anymore
For revenge

When I'm lying in my bed
I think about life and I think about death
And neither one particularly appeals to me.

When Last I Spoke to Carol
Morrissey
When last I spoke to Carol I said:
"I can't pretend it gets easier."
She said: "I've hung on, I have edged
Along this narrow ledge
Since the day I was born in 1975."
When last I spoke to Carol I said:
"I can't pretend I feel love for you."
She said: "I've hammered a smile
Across this pasty face of mine
Since the day I was born in 1975."
When I said goodbye to Carol
Black earth upon the casket fell
She had faded to
Something I always knew
To the rescue
Nobody ever comes

Maladjusted
Morrissey
On this glorious occasion...of the splendid defeat
I want to start from
Before the beginning
Loot wine, "Be mine, and
Then let's stay out for the night"
Ride via Parkside
Semi-perilous lives
Jeer the lights in the windows
Of all safe and stable homes
(But wondering then, well what
Could peace of mind be like?)
Anyway do you want to hear
Our story, or not?
As the Fulham Road lights
Stretch and invite into the night
From a Stevenage overspill
We'd kill to live around
SW6 - with someone like you
Keep thieves' hours
With someone like you
...As long as it slides
You stalk the house
In a low-cut blouse :
"Oh Christ, another stifled
Friday night!"
And the Fulham Road lights
Stretch and invite into the night
Well, I was fifteen
What could I know?
When the gulf between
All the things I need
And the things I receive
Is an ancient ocean
Wide, wild, lost, uncrossed
Still I maintain there's nothing
Wrong with you
You do all that you do
Because it's all you can do
Well, I was fifteen
Where could I go?
With a soul full of loathing
For stinging bureaucracy
Making it anything
Other than easy
For working girls like me
With my hands on my head
I flop on your bed
With a head full of dread
For all I've ever said
Maladjusted, maladjusted
Maladjusted maladjusted
Never to be trusted
Oh, never to be trusted
There's nothing wrong with you, oh
There's nothing wrong with you, oh
There's nothing wrong with you, oh
There's nothing wrong with you
There's nothing wrong with you

The twitching impulse
Is to speak your mind
I'll lend you my microscope
And maybe you will find it
Is it in that ugly place
That's just behind your face?
Where you keep my picture still
Despite the fact that you had me replaced

Say "Goodbye"
Baby can't you act your age?
You know why
I'm going to give it to you straight
Although I'll never be
Unhappy as you want me to be
Still it's all the rage

I'll probably play along
Left to my own devices
Spare me the drone of your advice
The sins of garter and gin
Confession may delay
You know the measuring pole
The merry boots of clay
I've heard it all before
You'll say it anyway

Say "Goodbye"
Baby can't you act your age?
You know why
I'm going to give it to you straight
Although I'll never be
Unhappy as you want me to be
Still it's all the rage

Alone with your tweezers
And your handkerchief
You murder time and truth
Love, laughter and belief
So don't try to touch my heart
It's darker than you think
And don't try to read my mind
Because it's full of disappearing ink

Say "Goodbye"
Baby can't you act your age?
You know why
I'm going to give it to you straight
Although I'll never be
Unhappy as you want me to be
Still it's all the rage

Although I'll never be
Unhappy as you want me to be
Still it's all the rage
