Bruce Springsteen – State Trooper (disclaimer - the album "nebraska" is bruce's only great album IMHO, and it's great :))

New Jersey turnpike, ridin' on a wet night
'Neath the refinery's glow, out where the great black rivers flow
License, registration, I ain't got none
But I got a clear conscience 'bout the things that I done


Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me


Maybe you got a kid, maybe you got a pretty wife
The only thing that I got's been botherin' me my whole life


Mister state trooper, please don't stop me
Please don't stop me, please don't stop me


In the wee, wee hours, your mind gets hazy
Radio relay towers gon' lead me to my baby
Radio's jammed up with talk show stations
It's just talk, talk, talk, talk, till you lose your patience


Mister state trooper, please don't stop me


Hey, somebody out there, listen to my last prayer
Hi ho silver-o, deliver me from nowhere
Hi ho

Shake Me Down
Cage the Elephant

Shake me down, not a lot of people left around
Who knows now? Softly laying on the ground
Ooh not a lot of people left around ooh ooh


In my life I have seen people walk into the sea
Just to find memories plagued by constant misery
Their eyes cast down, fixed upon the ground
Their eyes cast down


I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun


Shake me down, cut my hair on a silver cloud
Broken sound, softly laying on the ground
Ooh not a lot of people left around ooh ooh


In my past, bittersweet, there's no love between the sheets
Taste the blood, broken dreams, lonely times in deed
With eyes cast down, fixed upon the ground, with eyes cast down


I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun
Turn back now, it's time for me to let go
Way down, had to find a place to lay low
Lamp shade, turned around into a light post


Walk around the corner, never saw it coming, still
I try to make a move it almost stopped me from believing
I don't want to know the future, I'm like Rolling Thunder
Even on a cloudy day
Even on a cloudy day
Even on a cloudy day
Even on a cloudy day
Even on a cloudy day
Even on a cloudy day
Even on a cloudy day


I'll keep my eyes fixed on the-
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the-
I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun


Shake me down, not a lot of people left around
Ooh ooh

I'm having trouble trying to sleep..
(duh-nuh, duh-nuh, duh-nuh)
I'm counting sheep but running out..
(duh-nuh, duh-nuh, duh-nuh)
As time ticks by.. Still i try..
(duh-nuh, duh-nuh)
No rest for CROSSTOPS in my mind.
On my own, here we go.

These aren't lyrics from a favorite artist of mine.
For 10 months I have been suffering from MDD (manic depression and anxiety since 14).
Music, art, nature, spirituality -- a few things that have always been my saving grace. My go-to for feeling like my life is worth living.
Since the Major Depressive Disorder hit hard and hasn't lifted, I no longer indulge in these things, I consistently feel as if life isn't worth enduring. I've lost my ability to feel pleasure and joy from all of the things that once made me happy.

I chose these lyrics because for the first time in these unbearable months I found a song that made me smile, made my heart glow and feel alive, the song made me dance, and sing! It was a breath of fresh air from the suffocation of depression.

When I'm furthest from myself (far away)
Feeling closer to the stars (outer space)
I've been invaded by the dark (can't escape)
Trying to recognize myself when I feel I've been replaced
When I'm furthest from myself (far away)
Feeling closer to the stars (outer space)
I've been invaded by the dark (can't escape)
Trying to recognize myself when I feel I've been replaced

I can feel it kick down in my soul
And it's pulling me back to earth to let me know
I am not a slave, can't be contained
So pick me from the dark and pull me from the grave
'Cause

I still feel alive
And it is hopeless
I start to notice
And I still feel alive
Falling forward
Back into orbit

So when I lose my gravity in a sleepy womb
Drifting as I dream, I'll wake up soon
To realize the hand of life is reaching out
To rid me of my pride and all allegiance to myself

But I can feel it kick down in my soul
And it's pulling me back to earth to let me know
I am not a slave, can't be contained
So pick me from the dark and pull me from the grave
'Cause

I still feel alive
And it is hopeless
I start to notice
And I still feel alive
Falling forward
Back into orbit
And I still feel alive
It is hopeless
I start to notice
And I still feel alive
Falling forward
Back into orbit

I can feel it kick down in my soul
And it's pulling me back to earth to let me know
And this heart that beats inside of me will show
It will show

Floating in outer space
Have I misplaced
A part of my soul
Lost in the inbetween
Or so it seems
I'm out of control
Floating in outer space
Have I misplaced
A part of my soul
Lost in the inbetween
But it can't keep me
Asleep all along, 'cause

I still feel alive
And it is hopeless
I start to notice
And I still feel alive
Falling forward
Back into orbit
And I still feel alive
It is hopeless
I start to notice
And I still feel alive
Falling forward
Back into orbit

I still feel alive
I can feel it
It is hopeless
'Cause I start to notice
I still feel alive
I can feel it
Falling forward
I still feel alive
(I still feel alive)

So, perhaps the most important song ever written; the rules of the universe all laid-out in a simple, catchy, 3-minute tune. suitable for a commercial or even a ringtone. Sad to realize it was right in front me all along..Or I suppose something else could be going'on.

"Everybody was going on about karma ... but it occurred to me that karma is instant, as well as it influences your past life or your future life. There really is a reaction to what you do now ... Also, I'm fascinated by commercials and promotion as an art form ... So, the idea of instant karma was like the idea of instant coffee: presenting something in a new form." - John Lennon

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you're gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin' to do
It's up to you, yeah you

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna look you right in the face
Better get yourself together darlin'
Join the human race
How in the world you gonna see
Laughin' at fools like me
Who in the hell d'you think you are
A super star
Well, right you are

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Ev'ryone come on

Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
Better recognize your brothers
Ev'ryone you meet
Why in the world are we here
Surely not to live in pain and fear
Why on earth are you there
When you're ev'rywhere
Come and get your share

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Come on and on and on on on
Yeah yeah, alright, uh huh, ah

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
On and on and on on and on

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Yeah we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Too many fucking humans
You breed like rats

Residing in the residue of the contexture.....
Sufjan Stevens Fourth of July
The evil it spread like a fever ahead
It was night when you died, my firefly
What could I have said to raise you from the dead?
Oh could I be the sky on the Fourth of July?
"Well you do enough talk
My little hawk, why do you cry?
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn?
Or the Fourth of July?
We're all gonna die"
Sitting at the bed with the halo at your head
Was it all a disguise, like Junior High
Where everything was fiction, future, and prediction
Now, where am I? My fading supply
"Did you get enough love, my little dove
Why do you cry?
And I'm sorry I left, but it was for the best
Though it never felt right
My little Versailles"
The hospital asked should the body be cast
Before I say goodbye, my star in the sky
Such a funny thought to wrap you up in cloth
Do you find it all right, my dragonfly?
"Shall we look at the moon, my little loon
Why do you cry?
Make the most of your life, while it is rife
While it is light
Well you do enough talk
My little hawk, why do you cry?
Tell me what did you learn from the Tillamook burn?
Or the Fourth of July?
We're all gonna die"
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die
We're all gonna die

Farewell Transmission Ohia
The whole place is dark
Every light on this side of the town
Suddenly it all went down
Now we'll all be brothers of the fossil fire of the sun
Now we will all be sisters of the fossil blood of the moon
Someone must have set us up
Now they'll be working in the cold grey rock,
Now they'll be working in the hot mill steam,
Now they'll be working in the concrete
In the sirens and the silences now all the great set up hearts -
All at once start to beat
After tonight if you don't want us to be a secret out of the past
I will resurrect it, I'll have a good go at it
I'll streak his blood across my beak and dust my feathers with his ashes
I can feel his ghost breathing down my back
I will try and know whatever I try, I will be gone but not forever
I will try and know whatever I try, I will be gone but not forever
The real truth about it is no one gets it right
The real truth about it is we're all supposed to try
There ain't no end to the sands I've been trying to cross
The real truth about it is my kind of life's no better off
If I've got the maps or if I'm lost
We will try and know whatever we try,
We will be gone but not forever
Come on let's try will try and know whatever we try,
We will be gone but not forever
The real truth about it is there ain't no end to the desert I'll cross
I've really known that all along
Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall
Mama here comes midnight with the dead moon in its jaws
Must be the big star about to fall
Long dark blues
Will o the wisp
The big star is falling
Through the static and distance
A farewell transmission
Listen

He couldn't believe how easy it was
He put the gun into his face
Bang!
(So much blood from such a tiny little hole)
Problems do have solutions, you know
A lifetime of fucking things up fixed in one determined flash

[Outro]
Everything's blue
Everything's blue in this world
The deepest shade of mushroom blue
All fuzzy
Spilling out of my head

Palm trees & sea, just walkin along the beach.
Yeah baby, do that dance
it's the last dance you'll ever get the chance to do
Girl shake that ass
you ain't ever gonna break that glass, that windshield's too strong for you
I said yeah baby, sing that song
It's the last song you'll ever get the chance to sing
You sexy little thing, show me what you got, give it your all
Look at you ball, why you cryin' to me? Same song and dance

I'll slam dunk it into your mouth til you puke
And just as soon as you pass out in your alphabet suit
I'm bout to make a new outfit out of you
New outfit? Shit I'll make a suit out of you, shoot
No show me how you move, baby do how you do

Awaken




Yes


High vibration go on
To the sun
Oh, let my heart dreaming
Past a mortal as me
Where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still
Reaching out to touch our all being
Past all mortal as we
Here we can be
Here we can be

Suns | High | Streams | Through
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)

Strong | Dreams | Reign | Here
Awaken gentle mass touch
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touching
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touch

(Star | Song)

Star | Song | Age | Less
Awaken gentle mass touching
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touching
(Gentle mass touch)
Awaken gentle mass touching
Touching...
Touching...
Touching...

Workings of man
Set to ply out historical life
Reregaining the flower of the fruit of his tree
All awakening
All restoring you

Workings of man
Crying out from the fire set aflame
By his blindness to see
That the warmth of his being
Is promised for his seeing
His reaching so clearly

Workings of man
Driven far from the path
Rereleased in inhibitions
So that all is left for you
All is left for you
All is left for you
All is left for you NOW...

Master of images
Songs cast a light on you
Hark thru dark ties
That tunnel us out of sane existence
In challenge as direct
As eyes see young stars assemble

Master of light
All pure chance
As exists cross divided
In all encircling mode
Oh closely guided plan
Awaken in our heart

Master of soul
Set to touch
All impenetrable youth
Ask away
That thought be contact
With all that's clear
Be honest with yourself
There's no doubt
No doubt

Master of time
Setting sail
Over all our lands
And as we look
Forever closer
Shall we now bid
Farewell farewell...

High vibration go on
To the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
Past a mortal as me
Where can I be

Wish the sun to stand still
Reaching out to touch our own being
Past all mortal as we
Here we can be

Like the time I ran away
Turned around and you were standing close to me
Like the time I ran away
Turned around and you were standing close to me

So tired of waging war all day
These battles inside my mind arent for the faint
Take your lies deception trickery your fuckery and hide or catch the fade
In my head is where i play when in my hands is where i need to stay

You coward bitch
Unable to own your shit unable to look at yourself
defensive denial youll take to the grave
You coward bitch
You rich in this shit
.
Chaotic
neurotic
Non stop noise maker you cant bare silence
All your yappin yet youre sayin nothing
Mind raper meet haymaker
~Mlgjp8612

My fucked up parents caused my hippocampus to atrophy
No masterpeice straight catastrophe
Made me think thats just the way it had to be
Nah fuck you cuz now i see
And i soon will be
~Mlgjp8612

This fucked up masterpiece i be chokin down glass i feast
Hatin everday always the same feelin like im already 6 feet deep

Die a little everyday they say
To fly high you gonna hafta pay

Livin this way aint logical
Comes without no rhyme or cause aint plausible
Days are the same in this game coverin up dirt shame with glamour and fame

Aint got nothin left not even my goddamned name

I dont wanna feel this pain make it go away
Just give me one in the pink 2 in the stink and in the brain

~Mlgjp8612 (thats a million dollar hit right there it only took 2 minutes at this rate ill be millionaire)lol

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song
Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can't tempt us, with their lies
And I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won't you try to come
Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you
And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

Poetry is no place for a heart that's a whore
And I'm young and I'm strong
But I feel old and tired
Over fired
And I've been poked and stoked
It's all smoke, there's no more fire
Only desire
For you, whoever you are
For you, whoever you are
You say my time here has been some sort of joke
That I've been messing around
Some sort of incubating period
For when I really come around
I'm cracking up
And you have no idea
No idea how it feels to be on your own
In your own home
With the fucking phone
And the mother of gloom
In your bedroom
Standing over your head
With her hand in your head
With her hand in your head
I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I'm all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth
To do everything in truth
Oh I wish I wish I wish I was born a man
So I could learn how to stand up for myself
Like those guys with guitars
I've been watching in bars
Who've been stamping their feet to a different beat
To a different beat
To a different beat
I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I'm all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth
To do everything in truth
You bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
Oh you bloody mother fucking asshole
I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I'm all right for you
For you, whoever you are

Hopscotch, double dutch and going fishin
It dont matter if youre playin or wishin
Feelin like we are too far gone
And every day, its like a warning baby
A warning baby
Definitely darkest before the dawn
And I know
It takes more than words to make us whole
Into the deep we go
Baby til I drown
Into the deep we go

Hey now, little speedy head
The read on the speed meter says
You have to go to task in the city
Where people drown and people serve
Don't be shy
Your just deserve
Is only just light years to go

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon
I have got to leave to find my way
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

The ocean is the river's goal
A need to leave the water knows
We're closer now than light years to go

I have got to find the river
Bergamot and Vetiver
Run through my head and fall away
Leave the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

There's no one left to take the lead
But I tell you and you can see
We're closer now than light years to go
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
Fall into the ocean

The river to the ocean goes
A fortune for the undertow
None of this is going my way
There is nothing left to throw
Of Ginger, lemon, indigo
Coriander stem and rose of hay
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naivete
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
All of this is coming your way
