You know my love will not fade away
You know my love will not fade away
Not fade away


Today is Mick's birthday, he's 77.

Run, run, run for the roses
Quicker it opens, the sooner it closes
Man, oh, man, oh, friend of mine
All good things in all good time


Reach for the sun, catch hold of the moon
They're both too heavy but what can you do?
Reach for the stars, smack into the sky
You don't want to live but you're chicken to die
Oh, you're chicken to die??
 
2020-07-26 10:12:19 PM  
Stop, everyone, okay, just listen
Everything's not awesome
But that doesn't mean that it's hopeless and bleak
Everything's not awesome
But in my heart, I believe
We can make things better if we stick together

If it were easy as fishin' you could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar, chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows
People see you having fun just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid, and we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day
And we be taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
We be been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime

What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good god man you're out of your mind

So put down your bible
Or let me get mine
I ain't dragging the whole world to hell
Man you're wasting your time

I sat alone in the dark one night
Tuning in by remote
I found a preacher who spoke of the light
But there was brimstone in his throat
He'd show me the way according to him
In return for my personal check
I flipped my channel back to CNN
And I lit another cigarette
I take my chances
Yes, forgiveness doesn't come with a debt
I take my chances
I take my chances ev'ry chance I get

"This is a public health warning: The virus remains potentially lethal."

They're from the East

They still think
That they're the farking best.
Fark off you Nazi bastards.
Fark off you Nazi bastards.

Red, white and blue,
This one's for you.
If you still think
You're one of the chosen few
Fark off you Nazi bastard.
Fark off you Nazi bastard.

Once of the left,
Now of the right,
Are you the hammers
For another crystal night?
You farking Nazi bastards.
You farking Nazi bastards.

So just give me a callSunset and my love left me
Winter and I'm so far
In darkness will it lead me
Where the meanings areI miss and think of you often
No flowers I forgot them
The weather's the same
Nothing happens
No love's a hard lessonPatience and years will refashion
What hours will undo
And circles not yet quite circles
Somehow close true
I keep on hearing all the things that you said
I keep on feeling you go straight to my head
No more bluffing it's cards on the table time
What it must be we will take it as a signSo just give me a call
 
2020-07-27 12:53:54 AM  
enjoy my good friends may these good times last 'cause in this lifetime they come-n-go to fast

Good times last

I don't care, I don't care,I don't care
I don't care, I don't care
Care if it's old

I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind,I don't mind
Mind, don't have a mind

Get away, Get away, Get away
Get away
Away, away from your home

I'm afraid, I'm afraid, I'm afraid
I'm afraid, I'm afraid
Afraid, afraid of a ghost

You got a Methodist coloring book
And you color really well
But don't color outside the lines
Or God will send you to hell

Also from Dead Milkmen:

If you love somebody better set them on fire

If we're supposed to be serious, here's some Andre 3000:

Sex is always better when there's feelings involved

All you need is Love.  Imagine all the people sharing all the world.
Shine on you crazy diamond.  I'm gonna wave my freak flag high.
I'm not giving in an inch to fear.  All things must pass.
Let's go get stoned.  Let there be songs to fill the air.
With the power of soul, anything is possible.

It's not the end, it's the beginning
Grounds moist since it rained last night
Smells fresh and smells so clean
Stars shine down like a friendly white light
Here we go again...

Moved on from my despondency and left it in the bed
Do I leave it there still sleeping or maybe kill it, better yet?
For this is no time for depression or self-indulgent hesitance
This farked-up situation calls for all hands, hands on deck

Here's a song of mine that fits the theme.


Love Times Trouble (You Don't Have To Cry)

Said you got troubles?  Well that ain't no crime.
Unburden your shoulders, lighten your mind.
It's not too late for you to try.
Please understand, you don't have to cry.

Whatever goes down, the sun will still rise.
The birds will still sing, make your spirits high.
They say trouble divides, when love multiplies.
They speak the truth, you don't have to cry.

Do not fear the cruel, do not fear the dark.
Those who try to put their own holes in your heart.
Some people will say, you will fail if you try.
But they are a pity, you don't have to cry.

Don't ever decide what you can't achieve.
You could one day make real what was once make-believe.
You can find out how, if you know the why.
You will be smiling, you don't have to cry.

Your problem may seem like too much to bear.
Seek out a good friend, somebody will care.
Confront your despair, it is no lie.
Leaning together, you don't have to cry.

We've all got troubles, that ain't no crime.
They will all pass, in the fullness of time.
So let's dance and sing, all around the campfire.
Everybody will know, you don't have to cry.

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows


Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it's moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

The bolded verse was always my favourite.

Sometimes the fastest way to get there is to go slow, And sometimes if you wanna hold on you got to let go

Smile by Micky Ekko

Smile, the worst is yet to come
We'll be lucky if we ever see the sun
Got nowhere to go, we could be here for a while
But the future is forgiven, so smile

Do what you want
Do what you will
Just don't mess up
Your neighbor's thrill
And when you pay your bill
Kindly leave a little tip
And help the next poor sucker
On his one way trip
 
2020-07-27 5:31:26 AM  
You can choose a ready guide
In some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears
And kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose free will

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Someday you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn to be
Brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged high
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell and
The moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
 
2020-07-27 5:37:13 AM  
We lay the night in anguish, snakes drawn out by the tide
The compass of decision falls always on one side
But many went before us, and still the cries are clear
There is no beauty here, just the stench of wine and beer

We save no souls
We break no promises

We can do nothing more than move on headlong through the gloom
The thorn between our lips is the missionaries tune
Men with open arms turn their faces half away
Observe as we approach that we have not come to save
We stand as thick as vines, though the fruit is torn away
There is no beauty here, friends, just death and dark decay

We save no souls
We break no promises
 
2020-07-27 5:45:57 AM  
We've gotta roll with the punches
Learn to play all of our hunches
Making the best of whatever comes your way
Forget that blind ambition
And learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may

Lay down that boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die, oh till you die

If you save yourself for marriage, you're a bore
If you don't save yourself for marriage, you're a whor-rrrible person
If you won't have a drink, then you're a prude
But they'll call you a drunk as soon as you down the first one
If you can't lose the weight, then you're just fat
But if you lose too much, then you're on crack

You're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't
So you might as well just do whatever you want

So make lots of noise (hey)
And kiss lots of boys (yeah)
Or kiss lots of girls
If that's something you're into

When the straight and narrow
Gets a little too straight
Roll up a joint
Or don't

Just follow your arrow
Wherever it points
