Devil’s Haircut – Beck

Stealing kisses from the leperous faces

 

 

Devils Haircut”

 

Something’s wrong ’cause my mind is fading
And everywhere I look
There’s a dead end waiting
Temperature’s dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leperous faces

Heads are hanging from the garbage man trees
Mouthwash jukebox gasoline
Crystals are pointing
At a poor man’s pockets
Smiling eyes ripping out of his sockets

Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind

Love machines on the sympathy crutches
Discount orgies on the dropout buses
Hitching a ride with the bleeding noses
Coming to town with the brief case blues

Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind

Something’s wrong ’cause my mind is fading
Ghetto-blasting disintegrating
Rock ‘n’ roll, know what I’m saying
And everywhere I look
There’s a devil waiting

Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind
Got a devil’s haircut in my mind

Devil’s haircut! In my mind!
Devil’s haircut! In my mind!
Devil’s haircut! In my mind!

Frontier Psychiatrist – Avalanches


Can you think of anything else that talks, other than a person?

Uhm (uhm), a bird? Yeah! Sometimes a parrot talks. (Hello, hello)frontier psychiatry1

Ha ha ha ha ha

Yes, some birds are funny when they talk.

Can you think of anything else? Uhm, The record? (record?)

Avalanches – Frontier Psychiatrist Lyrics

Written by Chater, Robert / Fabay Dexter Llorca, / Kaempfert, Bert / Sigman, Carl / Rehbein, Herbert.

Is Dexter ill? Is Dexter ill? Is Dexter ill

Is Dexter ill today, Mr Kirt, Dexter’s in school?
I’m afraid he’s not, Miss Fishpaw

Dexter’s truancy problem is way out of hand
The Baltimore County school board have decided to expel
Dexter from the entire public school system

Oh Mr. Kirt, I’m as upset as you to learn of Dexter’s truancy
But surely, expulsion is not the answer
I’m afraid expulsion is the only answer
It’s the opinion of the entire staff that Dexter is criminally insane

That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy

Lie down on the couch, what does that mean?
You’re a nut, you’re crazy in the coconut
What does that mean? That boy needs therapy
I’m gonna kill you, that boy needs therapy

Grab a kazoo, let’s have a duel, now when I count three
That, that, that, that, that boy, boy needs therapy
He was white as a sheet and he also made false teeth

Avalanches is above, business continues below
Did I ever tell you the story about
Cowboys, m-m-midgets, the Indians and, Fron, Frontier Psychiatrist
I, I felt strangely hypnotised

I was in another world, a world of 20,000 girls
And milk Rectangles, to an optometrist, the man with the golden eyeball
And tighten your buttocks, pour juice on your chin
I promise my girlfriend I’d, the violin, violin, violin

Frontier Psychiatrist
Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier
Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier
Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier

That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy

Lie down on the couch, what does that mean?
You’re a nut you’re crazy in the coconut
What does that mean? That boy needs therapy
I’m gonna kill you, that boy needs therapy

Ranagazoo, let’s have a tune, now when I count three
That, that, that, that, that boy, boy needs therapy
He was white as a sheet and he also made false teeth

Frontier Psychiatrist

Can you think of anything else that talks, other than a person?
A-a-a bird? Yeah, sometimes a parrot talks
Hello, hello, hello, hello
Yes, some birds are funny when they talk
Can you think of anything else? Um, a record, record, record

I need a world that is easier to live in…


We can’t change the world, we can only change that part of it that we occupy – that part we each call call “me”.

But when we change that part we also change the whole.

Sometimes I’m asked “wat brings you to do this work?”

It’s simple.

I need a world that’s easier for me to live in.
I believe we all do.

What I do is just me doing my part, and the best way I know how, to help that world come about.

A world that’s easier for us all to live in…

I need a world that's

beating me with that strop taught me something… Charles Bukowski


Charles Bukowski, with typically frank and brutal honesty on where he found his writing chops …

This clip is taken from the documentary Born Into This…

bukowskiHave you ever been beaten with a razor strop
three times a week
from the age of six
until eleven?
you know how many beatings that is?

So, you see this was very good literary training for me.
beating me with that strop
taught me something…

…how to type.

bukowski iithe connection is…
when you’ve had the shit kicked out of you
for long enough,
and long enough,
and long enough,
you have a tendency to say what you really mean.

The Unnamable – Samuel Becket


Awareness of our is inner voice is basic awareness – consciousness 101.

Many who call themselves  “scientist” claim to be “expert” yet the truth is that they know very little despite their repeated claims and the billions they spend on fancy high-tech  toys with which they bamboozle themselves – and us – with their neuroporn.

Science can be helpful and revealing but, sadly, not all that is done in the name of science is worthy of that name and is instead nought but a flimsy a veil weaved and waved to serve those who would put themselves in the position of deciding for the rest of us what must be accepted as true, or at least the best version we can come up with for now.

It  is often the arts, not the sciences, that offers us greater insight into what it means to be alive and to be human.

It is certainly true  of Samuel Beckett that he understood a great deal more about incessant inner dialogue than any psychiatrist could ever pretend.
He practically made it his life work to find ways to explore and express it – and he won a Nobel prize.

Here’s an extract from The Unnamable, third in his Molloy trilogy regarded as one of the great masterpieces of 20th century writing.

And you don’t need a $20 million fund  to buy fancy hi-tech facility to peer into brains – $20 will buy a copy of all three books.

This brief reading includes the passage above and is  set to animation .

“Based on the novel of the same name by Samuel Beckett. This film animates body parts, chess pieces and mechnical motifs as life’s conveyor belt threatens to grind to a halt, but never does.

Are you the Brutal Heart
Are you the Brutal Heart that I’ve been looking for
Cause if you’re looking for love, you can look for that door
Hearts
Hearts that break the night in two
And arms that can’t hold you that true

So use me
Use me

I don’t mind at all
I don’t mind that you only call me when you want
And I’m just glad you want me at all
Hearts
And hearts that break the night in two
And arms that can’t hold you that true

So use me
Use me

So are we Brutal Hearts
Are we Brutal Hearts that break the night in two
Cause I just want this night with you

Well I don’t like the man
I don’t like the man that I am
I just want this night with you
Well then lets take this night from black to blue
Well then lets take this night from black to blue

So use me
Use me

So are we Brutal Hearts
Are we Brutal Hearts that break the night in two
Cause I just want this night with you

So use me
Use me

Never Say Never – Basement Jaxx

Oh, never mind, we tried
We loved
We conquered, I won’t forget
The taste
Oh, no

I’ll never say never again
I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again
I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again

The music brings me right back
And you know that
And you know that
I got the answers in me
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me…

Like a vision of love
You came, you stood
You blew right through me
I have no regrets
The tears, the hopes

I’ll never say never again
I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again
I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again

The music brings me right back
And you know that
And you know that
I got the answers in me
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me…

The music brings me right back
And you know that
And you know that
I got the answers in me
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me…

Oh, sing my love
Oh, sing my love
Oh, sweet my love
Oh, sweet my love

Oh, sing my love
Oh, sing my love
Oh, sweet my love
Oh, sweet my love

We’ve all just gotta be
‘Cause answers rarely come easily
We’ve all just gotta be
Then finally, finally we’re free

I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again

Oh, sing my love
Oh, sing my love
Oh, sweet my love
Oh, sweet my love

I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again

Oh, sing my love
Oh, sing my love
Oh, sweet my love
Oh, sweet my love

I’ll never say never
I’ll never say never again

The music brings me right back
And you know that
And you know that
I got the answers in me
Tell me, tell me, tell me

It’s like I hear an angel calling
The music

Randy Orton – I hear voices


Randy Orton – twelve time world Champion WWE Wrestler’s theme song.
Go ahead – you tell him the “voices aren’t real, you know”.

Randy Orton World WWE championI hear voices in my head,
They council me
They understand
They talk to me

I Hear Voices – Randy Orton

I hear voices in my head,
They council me
They understand
They talk to me

You got your rules and your religion
All designed to keep you safe
But when rules start getting broken
You start questioning your faith

I have a voice that is my savior
Hates to love and loves to hate
I have a voice that has the knowledge
And the power to rule your fate

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that’s drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head
They council me
They understand
They talk to me (x2)

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I’ll do to you
They talk to me(talk to me x3)[x2]

All the lawyers are defenseless
All the doctors are disease
And the preachers’ are the sinners
And police just take the grease

All you judges you are guilty
All the bosses I will fire
All your bankers will have losses
Politicians are all the liars

I see darkness falling
I hear voices calling
I feel justice crawling
I see faith has fallen

I hear voices in my head
They council to me
They understand
They talk to me (x2)

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I’ll do to you
They talk to me (talk to me x3)

I hear voices crying
I see heroes dying
I taste blood that’s drying
I feel tension rising

I hear voices in my head
They council me
They understand
They talk to me (x2)

They tell me things that I will do
They show me things I’ll do to you
They talk to me (talk to me x3)[x2]

The English Way – Fightstar


the english wayToo many lives have been lost
Under orders of too many people

 

 

 

The English Way – Fightstar

You can find your hope amongst the crowds
Of all the people you’ve let down,
We’ll find a way to make this okay.
We skip through the night,
It’s all that we need too,
And maybe it’s all that we’ll ever need,
Just to make us feel alive.

You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)
You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)

I will never give up on you
For all the times you sat and sang to me
Trying to make me better.
So now I’m trying to let you know
That this is the English way to make
Us all fit back together.

Please don’t speak these words just save them,
Walk with me and take a trip
We’ll only stop for water and some other things.
We skip through the night,
It’s all that we need to
And maybe it’s all that we’ll ever need
Just to make us feel alive.

You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)
You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)

You can find your hope amongst the crowds
Of all the people you’ve let down,
We’ll find a way to make this okay.
We skip through the night,
It’s all that we need too,
And maybe it’s all that we’ll ever need,
Just to make us feel alive.

You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)
You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)

I will never give up on you
For all the times you sat and sang to me
Trying to make me better.
So now I’m trying to let you know
That this is the English way to make
Us all fit back together.

(All within reason all this is going to be over, all within reason all this is going to be over)

Too many lives have been lost
Under orders of too many people
That have lost their voices.

You can find your hope amongst the crowds
Of all the people you’ve let down,
We’ll find a way to make this okay.
We skip through the night,
It’s all that we need too,
And maybe it’s all that we’ll ever need,
Just to make us feel alive.

You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)
You are, you are, your all around (you are, you are, you are, your all around right now)

I will never give up on you
For all the times you sat and sang to me
Trying to make me better.
So now I’m trying to let you know
That this is the English way to make
Us all fit back together

Giant In My Heart – Kiesza


wow do do do do do dowWow doo doo doo doo dow

 

 

 

 

 

“Giant In My Heart”

I’m trying to pretend it isn’t true
But even when I want its like I can’t get over you
Over you
Over you, over you
And everytime I try and tell you why
I turn my face and tears run down my eyes
It’s over now, over now
Baby it’s over now, over now

So give me all the magic
Just give me all the magic that we made
It’s like a giant in my heart babe
This love is greater then my heartbreak
So give me back the moments
Just give me back the moments that we made
It’s like a giant in my heart babe
This love is greater then my heartbreak

Wow doo doo doo doo dow

What’s the point of going through
All the pain I’m in with you
What am I supposed to do
In my heart there’s only you
Baby I can’t lose you

I’m lying to myself that I’m ok
But when I see your photograph
I’m still not over you, over you
Over you, over you
And everytime I will your love away
It comes back in a rush reminding me
It’s over now, over now
Over now, over now

So give me all the magic
Just give me all the magic that we made
It’s like a giant in my heart babe
This love is greater then my heartbreak
So give me back the moments
Just give me back the moments that we made
It’s like a giant in my heart babe
This love is greater then my heartbreak

Wow doo doo doo doo dow

What’s the point of going through
All the pain I’m in with you
What am I supposed to do
In my heart there’s only you
Baby I can’t lose you

I tried my best and I’ll confess I’ll love with less
I gave the most and took the loss from what I chose
I fought for you you lead me to a painful truth
And now I wait without a heart to save

My love, my love, my love, my love
My love, my love, my love, my love
There’s no escaping you

Wow doo doo doo doo dow

What’s the point of going through
All the pain I’m in with you
What am I supposed to do
In my heart there’s only you
Baby I can’t lose you
