Favourite Songs (And Lyrics)
« on: February 21, 2013, 04:00:23 PM »
Here's mine! :D

If I were a core...
even just for a day.
I'd roll out of "sleep-mode" in the morning...
and slide along my management rail.
Wake Chell from her sleep.
And chase after birds.
I'd go wherever I wanted...
if test-suject was carying me...
because they trusted me.

If I were a core...
I think I could understand...
how it feels to be in power...
I'd swear I'd be a better core.
I'd listen to her...
because I'd know how it hurts...
when you take over the facility...
by taking her for granted...
and everything she has gets destroyed.

If I were a core...
I would test with the bots...
and try to kill Chell and PotatOS...
by crushing them with mashy-spike-plates.
I'd put myself first...
and built the tests as I go...
but I'd get banished into deep space...
with a core who is completely obsessed...
with SPACE.

If I were a core...
I think I could understand...
how it feels to be in power...
I'd swear I'd be a better core.
I'd listen to her...
because I'd know how it hurts...
when you take over the facility...
by taking her for granted...
and everything she has gets destroyed.

It's a little too late for you to come back.
Say it's just a mistake?
Think she'd forgived you like that?
If you thought she will let you come back in...
you thought wrong.

But you're just a core...
you don't understand.
how it feels to be in power...
someday you'll wish you were a better core.
You don't listen to her...
you don't know that it hurts...
when you took over the facility...
by taking her for granted...
and ewerything you had got destroyed.

Here's mine!

Heya Tom, it's Bob from the office down the hall
It's good to see you buddy, how've you been?
Things have been OK for me except that I'm a zombie now
I really wish you'd let us in
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
But here's an FYI: you're all gonna die screaming

All we want to do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains

I don't want to nitpick, Tom, but is this really your plan?
Spend your whole life locked inside a mall?
Maybe that's OK for now but someday you'll be out of food and guns
And you'll have to make the call
I'm not surprised to see you haven't thought it through enough
You never had the head for all that bigger picture stuff
But Tom, that's what I do, and I plan on eating you slowly

All we want to do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains

I'd like to help you Tom, in any way I can
I sure appreciate the way you're working with me
I'm not a monster Tom, well, technically I am
I guess I am

I've got another meeting Tom, maybe we could wrap it up
I know we'll get to common ground somehow
Meanwhile I'll report back to my colleagues who were chewing on the doors
I guess we'll table this for now
I'm glad to see you take constructive criticism well
Thank you for your time I know we're all busy as hell
And we'll put this thing to bed
When I bash your head open

All we want to do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains

Also, that If I Were a Core song is exceedingly well done. XD

I fixed your "Brains" Youtube embed. :) Apparently it's pretty picky about the URL.

Oh, thanks! It worked when I first posted it (I think) but the youtube embeds don't seem to like me.

All I Want -> A Day To Remember

Iím always screaming my lungs out
Till my head starts spinning
Playing my songs is the way I cope with life
Wonít keep my voice down
Know the words I speak are the thoughts I think out loud

I like to keep things honest.
Iím a safe bet like your lifeís staked on it, for real
Iíd hate to keep you all wondering
Iím a constant like the seasons
I will never be forgotten, man

Letís leave no words unspoken
And save regrets for the broken
Will you even look back when you think of me?

All I want is a place to call my own,
To mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone
You know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low
Keep your hopes up high and your head down low

Still got something left to prove
It tends to keep things moving
While everyone around me says my last days are looming overhead
But what the hell do they think they know?
My head's above the water while they drown in the undertow

And if you take it from me,
Live your life for yourself
Cause when itís all said and done you donít need anyone else

So letís get back to when everything seemed perfect
Not a worry in the world, tell me was it all worth it?
I get what I want, so everyoneís always judging me
Iím not afraid of anything, Iíve got the whole world in front of me

I have a playlist of a little over 30 songs that signify musical perfection and/or have some kind of meaning to me. Here's two selections.

First Tube's awesome.  I saw that at before Phish performed it, when Trey was playing with The Trey Anastasio Band at Higher Ground in 1999.

I was just at Madison Square Garden for 12/28. Great show. They're definitely back in form.

Way back when in '67
I was the dandy
Of Gamma Chi
Sweet things from Boston
So young and willing
Moved down to Scarsdale
And where the hell am I

Hey Nineteen
No we can't dance together
No we can't talk at all
Please take me along
When you slide on down

Hey Nineteen
That's 'Retha Franklin
She don't remember the Queen of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old

Hey Nineteen
No we got nothing in common
No we can't talk at all
Please take me along
When you slide on down

The Cuervo Gold
The fine Colombian
Make tonight a wonderful thing

We can't dance together
No we can't talk at all
