Gabriel Grey (mrseysidescousr)
 

ben harper - when it's good
i hang your picture above my mind
don't do anything you can’t deny


gerry and the pacemakers - ferry cross the Mersey
People they rush everywhere
Each with their own secret care
So ferry 'cross the Mersey
and always take me there, the place I love

 
the doors - soul kitchen
Your fingers weave quick minuets
Speak in secret alphabets
I light another cigarette
Learn to forget

 
john hiatt - alone in the dark
It's extreme self pity and frozen fear
'Cause I want you with me, and you're not here
So rub my nose in it babe
'Til the roses smell just like hell


peter gabriel - not one of us
A foreign body
And a foreign mind
Never welcome
In the land of the blind


nine inch nails - a warm place
(instrumental)


alice cooper – deeper
Daylight is at an end
You'll never see again
You'll soon embrace the sight
This cold eternal light


alice in chains - man in the box
I'm the man in the box
Buried in my shit
Won't you come and save me, save me

 
peter gabriel - white ashes
(instrumental)


dave matthews – gravedigger
Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain


beck - dark star
Ammunition souls shooting
Holes in the ozone
Widows tears
Washing a soldier's bones


peter gabriel - and through the wire
And through the wire I hear your voice
And through the wire I touch the power
And through the wire I see your face
It's through the wire


dan fogelberg - times like these
Tell me a secret, tell me a lie
Tell me the truth if you have to
Say what you see fit, but don't ask me why
Love never seems to last you.


huey lewis and the news - walkin' on a thin line
Blinded by a memory
Afraid of what it might do to me
And the tears and the sweat
Only mock my desperation

 

oingo boingo – spider
Spider crawling, I crawl with him -
We go everywhere, we see everything
We are falling, we are falling, falling to nowhere
Hope you're happy - found what you're looking for
Do you miss me, miss me at all?


alabama 3 - power in the blood
I will raise my sword upright, to the bright and shining light,
Stained crimson red with the blood of the unredeemed
And as I cut them limb from limb, and I dash all their kith and kin,
You know, their bodies I will bury in the deep
Because there's power in the blood


faith no more - the real thing
This is so unreal, what I feel
This nourishment, life is bent into a shape I can hold
A twist of fate, all my own
Just grit your teeth, make no sound, take a step away and look around
Just clench your fist and close your eyes
Look deep inside, hypnotize
The whisper is but a shout; that's what it is all about
Yes, the ecstasy, you can pray
You will never let it slip away

 

talking heads - houses in motion
And as we watch him digging his own grave
It is important to know that I was where he's at
He can't afford to stop...That is what he believes
He'll keep on digging for a thousand years


peter gabriel – nocturnals
we would wrap them, wrap them up
anything to shut them up
had to stitch them, stitch them up
see how they fly


tricky - strugglin'
Roll with the bullets to survive
Strugglin...strugglin...strugglin to remain
They label me insane
But i'm...i'm...i think i'm more normal than most

 

nine inch nails - the greater good
Persuasion
Coercion
Submission
Assimilation

Breathe
Us in
Slowly, slowly

 
sting - shape of my heart
Those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear are lost

 
the waifs - flesh and blood
Ashes come to ashes, dust becomes to dust
My secret soul will never die as my body surely must
When I’m buried under the ground I’ll still be here in kind
Invisible and sinister
The things I leave behind

 
simon and garfunkel - i am a rock
I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.


peter gabriel – wild
(instrumental)


talking heads -  born under punches (the heat goes on)
Take a look at these hands.
The hand speaks. The hand of a government man.
Well I'm a tumbler. Born under punches.
I'm so thin.


roger daltrey and the chieftains - behind blue eyes
No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you!

 

peter gabriel - my head sounds like that
The moments come and go like water
I try to hold them but they're fading

 
tom waits - earth died screaming
Well hell doesn't want you, and heaven is full
bring me some water, put it in this skull
I walk between the raindrops, wait in bug house square
and the army ants
they leave nothin' but the bones


kenny wayne shepherd - everything is broken
Broken words never meant to be spoken
Everything is broken
Seem like every time you stop and turn around
Something else just hit the ground


metallica - the unforgiven ii
Lay beside me, tell me what they've done
Speak the words I wanna hear, to make my demons run


martyn bennett – blackbird


peter gabriel - signal to noise
Man, I'm losing sound and sight
Of all those who can tell me wrong from right
When all things beautiful and bright sink in the night
Yet there's still there's something in my heart
That can find a way to make a start
To turn up the signal, wipe out the noise


the rolling stones - you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime, well you might find
You get what you need
