my new favorite music video
I know I’m often told
That there’s a pot of gold
But I don’t see a fucking rainbow and my coffee’s cold
I know I should be grateful
I know I’m good and able
But I don’t have the strength to get up from the kitchen table
This kind of shot comes once
Another opportunity of a lifetime just slipped away
And that’s the fifth this month
but when you take a punch
Don’t you ever forget
Why you get up and you put one foot in front of the next
James Blake // Retrograde
s/o to the Vangelis Blade Runner synths on this one
New James Blake, yo!
Youth Lagoon - 17 My brain can think faster than I can,
I’m not fast enough.
Who is there to talk to
That won’t lock me up?
At least God doesn’t judge me by the thoughts that aren’t mine,
The snakes I couldn’t find,
I don’t want to find.
When I was seventeen,
My mother said to me
“Don’t stop imagining. The day that you use is the day that you die.”
Now I pull a one-ton carriage,
Instead of the horses, grazing the lawn.
I was having fun.
We were all having fun.
Father John Misty ~ I’m Writing a Novel
Fear Fun 2012
Something ‘bout the way Violet whips her hair
That makes me empty my pockets holding court on the corner burning twenties as if I was the mayor
I don’t need any new friends, Momma
But I could really use something to do
So if you’re up for it sometimes
I swear you wouldn’t have to be my muse
The Ruse - He Who Never
“To be totally absent
and fully alive”
My buddy Aaron’s song. He’s got a new EP coming out soon.
I Don’t Wanna Grow Up | Tom Waits
Seems like folks turn into things
That they’d never want
How do you move in a world of fog
That’s always changing things
Makes me wish that I could be a dog
When I see the price that you pay
James Blake - Measurements
father john misty - fun times in babylon
good tune. i think i’ll share it with you.
I would like to abuse my lungs
Smoke everything in sight with every girl I’ve ever loved
Ride around the wreckage on a horse knee-deep in blood
Look out, Hollywood, here I come
Only one desire
That’s left in me
I want the whole damn world
To come dance with me
