Editors – Honesty

Don’t you want me to stay?
Make a rocking horse getaway
The radio said we’re in for a fall
The TV says nothing at all

Out of my window it echoes my heart
I’ve been checking for change since the start
Collide into me, I could do with a fight
Collide into me, cause it feels right

Does the honesty deceive?
Try to find a way to leave this party
Take it out on me
Cause all the honesty
Shuts this place down

Your bowling ball eyes have nothing to say
They knock me over again anyway
Collide into me, I could do with a fight
Collide into me, cause it feels right

Does the honesty deceive?
Try to find a way to leave this party
Take it out on me
Cause all the honesty
Shuts this place down

The broken hearts of my neighborhood
Lay cast aside like dreams in Hollywood
With the boarded up windows and the closing sales

Does the honesty deceive?
Try to find a way to leave this party
Take it out on me
Cause all the honesty
Shuts this place down

Does the honesty deceive?
Try to find a way to leave this party
Take it out on me
Cause all the honesty
Shuts this place down

Editors - Honesty

Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 (Acoustic)

Shakedown 1979, cool kids never have the time
On a live wire right up off the street
You and I should meet
Junebug skipping like a stone
With the headlights pointed at the dawn
We were sure we’d never see an end to it all
And I don’t even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know
Just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
Double cross the vacant and the bored
They’re not sure just what we have in store
Morphine city slipping dues down to see
That we don’t even care as restless as we are
We feel the pull in the land of a thousand guilts
And poured cement, lamented and assured
To the lights and towns below
Faster than the speed of sound
Faster than we thought we’d go, beneath the sound of hope
Justine never knew the rules,
Hung down with the freaks and the ghouls
No apologies ever need be made, I know you better than you fake it
To see that we don’t even care to shake these zipper blues
And we don’t know just where our bones will rest
To dust I guess
Forgotten and absorbed into the earth below
The street heats the urgency of now
As you see there’s no one around

Deftones – Cherry Waves

A sea of waves,
We hug the same plank
Just as I had rehearsed it over in my brain
(I saw your end)

If the waves suck you in, and you drown

If like you should sink down beneath
I’ll swim down. Would you? Would You?

You hang anchors over my neck
I liked it at first
But the more you you laughed, the crazier I came

And the waves suck you in, and you drown

If like you should sink down beneath
I’ll swim way swim down. Would you?

Is that what you want?
You…
Well that’s what you’ve got

Wave…after…wave…

If like you should sink down beneath, I’ll swim down,
Would you?

Is that what you want?
With you
Is this what you want?
With you, you

Escape…below…

Marillion – The Space

Marillion – The Space

On top of the world like a flag on a mountain
Feeling so high you can feel so alone
Unable to breathe at the height that you flew
Staring on clouds with no view of below

On top of a girl like a dream in a hotel
Falling towards something out of control
Unable to miss like the man in the tram
Crashing your car in Amsterdam

He did it without knowing, didn’t feel a thing
He just wrecked it and kept going

The space around the stars
Is something that you know
A billion miles of darkness
Left your feeling low
The space around the stars
Is something that you know

Everything about you
So perfectly restrained
But everything inside you
Bites you

Everybody in the whole of the world
Feels the same inside
Everybody in the whole of the world

Everyone is only everyone else
Everybody’s got to know
Everybody lives and loves and laughs and cries
And eats and sleeps and grows and dies
Everybody in the whole of the world
Is the same this time
Is the same inside
In the whole of the world
