Songs of the Week

I have no idea if I'm going to do this post a week from now.  We'll see, I guess.  Life seriously needs some spoiler alerts.  Although, I'm almost always correct with my instincts anyway (and they're usually bad, but meh, you get used to it).  Either someone/thing is gonna have to prove me wrong for once (doubtful) or I'll just get used to knowing what's gonna happen well in advance.  Until then, I'll pop on my iPod and lose track of time while I write stuff.  See you next week?  Maybe.  For all none of you who read this.

Side note - Dirty Laundry may be my favorite collection of lyrics for a song, ever.

Songs Tally

5th tally for You, Me and Everyone We Know, 3rd tally for Dirty Laundry

Dirty Laundry - You, Me and Everyone We Know
All alone again.  I speak as if I'd last one minute with eyes not fixed upon this screen.  Stalking the girls I could never fuck.  I mean, they're sluts but it seems I lack that luck.  And I'm not the man to wash my hands all alone or acting like we've hit it off, 'cause either way I'm just jerking someone off.  At 2 AM, dicks out and pissing, 'til you leave town wishing.  I won't be satisfied.  Things are gonna be different now you see.  And add to all this dirty laundry you left me.  It's getting air and with heavy rotation.  You'd better have a damn good explanation.  You act as though you have lived a lie because your tan's been overcooked.  But, I've been burned and burned and burned and burned.

6th tally for Secondhand Serenade, 2nd tally for Vulnerable

Vulnerable - Secondhand Serenade
Your slowly shaking fingertips show that you're scared like me, so let's pretend we're alone.  And I know you may be scared and I know we're unprepared, but I don't care.  Tell me, tell me what makes you think that you are invincible?  I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure.  Please, don't tell me that I'm the only one that's vulnerable.  Impossible.

5th tally for The Used, 2nd tally for All That I've Got

All That I've Got - The Used
I'll be just fine pretending I'm not. I'm far from lonely and it's all that I've got.

24th tally for Say Anything, 1st tally for Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too

Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too - Say Anything
I called her on the phone and she touched herself.  I laughed myself to sleep.

25th tally for Say Anything, 2nd tally for Colorblind

Colorblind - Say Anything
Here comes a view I've seen a million times.  Here comes a boring song with thoughtless rhymes.  I know you're sick of me, so tell me here, because you could have been the one to make it all disappear.  But, I move too slow and I think too fast and the first rainbow I see will be the last.

26th tally for Say Anything, 2nd tally for Hate Everyone

Hate Everyone - Say Anything
Did you know that there are people in the world annoyed with all the other people in the world?  And of all these angry people in the world, I am the angriest boy.

1st tally for Gavin DeGraw, 1st tally for I Don't Wanna Be

I Don't Wanna Be - Gavin DeGraw
I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately.

Pursuit of happiness, yeah.  I don't get it, I'll be good.

1st tally for Motion City Soundtrack, 1st tally for The Future Freaks Me Out

The Future Freaks Me Out - Motion City Soundtrack
It's so hard to relate to the whole human race. I don't know where to begin, I don't know where to begin. If we can both find a way to do the things that we say, we might not sit in our rooms and drink our daydreams away.  Betty, I'm a dreamer, I'm not a vicious schemer.  Oh, Betty won't you - ah, fuck it.

49th tally for Blink-182, 2nd tally for What Went Wrong

What Went Wrong - Blink-182
I'm sick of always hearing all the sad songs on the radio.  All day it is there to remind an over sensitive guy that he's lost and alone.

50th tally for Blink-182, 4th tally for Wishing Well

Wishing Well - Blink-182
I reached for a shooting star, it burned a hole through my hand.

5th tally for Sum 41, 1st tally for In Too Deep

In Too Deep - Sum 41
The faster we're falling, we're stopping and stalling.  We're running in circles again.  Just as things were looking up you said it wasn't good enough, but still we're trying one more time.  Maybe we're just trying too hard when really it's closer than it is too far.  'Cause I'm in too deep and I'm trying to keep up above in my head instead of going under.


  1. "if you could only see in the mirror what I see"

  2. "The faster we're falling, we're stopping and stalling. "

  3. "And of all these angry people in the world, I am the angriest boy."

  4. "Your slowly shaking fingertips show that you're scared like me, so let's pretend we're alone."

  5. "Oh, Betty won't you - ah, fuck it."

  6. Luckily, I know which one of these was the serious comment lol
