The lyrics:

1. Spirit ~ Bauhaus 

Tonight I could be with you
Or waiting in the Wings
Lift your heart with soaring song
Cut down the puppet strings
Cut down the puppet strings

I wear a coat of drums
And dance upon your eyes
Turn the tables upside down
Change the lows to highs
Change the lows to highs

I fill you up with butterflies
Crown the heads of kings
Be glad of first night nerves
For fear gives courage wings
Fear gives courage wings

If I am on the sidelines
Chances are you'll miss
Wait alone and spotlit
For Doctor Theatre's kiss

The stage becomes a ship in flames
I tie you to the mast
Throw your body overboard
The spotlight doesn't last
The spotlight doesn't last

I could be with you
Or waiting in the wings
Lift your heart with soaring song
Cut down the puppet strings
Cut down the puppet strings

I may tap you on the shoulder
And whisper "go" in red
Strip your feet of lead my friend
Strip your feet of lead

Call the curtain
Raise the roof
Spirits on tonight

Call the curtain
Raise the roof
Spirits on tonight

Call the curtain
Raise the roof
Spirits on tonight

We love our audience repeat 


2. Swallowed in the Sea ~ Coldplay 

You cut me down a tree
And brought it back to me
And that's what made me see
Where I was going wrong

You put me on a shelf
And kept me for yourself
I can only blame myself
You can only blame me

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me

And I could write it down
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
Or swallowed in the sea

You put me on a line
And hung me out to dry
And darling that's when I
Decided to go to see you

You cut me down to size
And opened up my eyes
Made me realize
What I could not see

And I could write a book
The one they'll say that shook
The world, and then it took
It took it back from me

And I could write it down
Or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
And you'll come back to me
Not swallowed in the sea

Ooh...

And I could write a song
A hundred miles long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me

The streets you're walking on
A thousand houses long
Well, that's where I belong
And you belong with me

Oh what good is it to live
With nothing left to give
Forget but not forgive
Not loving all you see

Are the streets you're walking on
A thousand houses long
Well that's where I belong
And you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea

You belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea
Yeah, you belong with me
Not swallowed in the sea


3. The Last of the Famous International Playboys ~ Morrissey 

Dear hero imprisoned
With all the new crimes that you are perfecting
Oh, I can't help quoting you
Because everything that you said rings true
And now in my cell
(Well, I followed you)
And here's a list of who I slew

Reggie Kray - do you know my name ?
Oh, don't say you don't
Please say you do, (oh) I am :

The last of the famous
International playboys
The last of the famous
International playboys
And in my cell
(Well, I loved you)
And every man with a job to do
Ronnie Kray - do you know my face ?
Oh, don't say you don't
Please say you do, (oh) I am :

The last of the famous
International playboys
The last of the famous
International playboys

In our lifetime those who kill
The newsworld hands them stardom
And these are the ways
On which I was raised
These are the ways
On which I was raised

I never wanted to kill
I AM NOT NATURALLY EVIL
Such things I do
Just to make myself
More attractive to you
HAVE I FAILED ?

Oh... .

Oh, the last of the famous
International playboys


4. It's all shit ~ Iggy Pop 

If it walks like shit
Talks like shit
It must be shit
If it feels like shit
Tastes like shit
It must be shit
If it looks like shit
Sounds like shit
It must be shit
If it smells like shit
Tells like shit
It must be shit
See Times Square
A vacuum of feeling
Listen, little man
Advertise this
That it’s all shit
It’s all shit
Nothing but shit
Billboard shit
Love just keeps on coming
Love will clean it up
Love just keeps on coming
Love will sweep it out
Love just keeps on coming
Love just keeps on coming
If it walks like a duck
Talks like a duck
It must be a duck
If it smells like a duck
Talks like a duck
It must be a duck
If it smells like a duck
Tastes like a duck
It’s a goddamn duck
If it feels like a duck
Tells like a duck
It must be a duck
If it looks like a duck
Sounds like a duck
It must be a duck
Walking blinded
Eternal night
Of hype no magic
Fake no love
Child are actors
How depressing
Little adults
With fancy pants
Ohhhhhhh
Love just keeps on coming
Love just keeps on coming, baby
Love just keeps on coming
Love just keeps on coming
Love will weed ‘em out
Love just keeps on coming baby
Love just keeps on coming baby
Love
Love
Your fucking cache is over, baby
Skybar shit
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
Nobody cares
Nobody cares


5. Good Morning Life ~ Dean Martin 

Good morning life
Good morning sun how are your skies above
Gee it's great to be alive and in love


Good morning life
Good morning birds sing out your happy tunes
Feels so good because I'll be seeing her soon


Last night she said she loved me
What a pity to part
I slept with both eyes open waiting for today to start


Good morning life
Good morning world how are you happiness
All at once I know what livin' can be
It's life, it's free, it's someone waiting for me
Who'll someday be my wife, good morning life


Good morning life
Good morning life


Last night she said she loved me
What a pity to part
I slept with both eyes open waiting for today to start


Good morning life
Good morning world how are you happiness
All at once I know what livin' can be
Ah it's life, it's free, it's someone waiting for me
Who'll someday be my wife, good morning life


6. Moonlight sonata # 14 ~ Depeche Mode 

{instrumental}


7. Angel of the Morning ~ Nina Simone 

there'll be no strings to bind you hands
Not if my love can bind your heart
And theres no need to take a stand
For it was I who chose to start
I see no reason to take me home
I'm old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me (baby)
Just call me angel of the morning (angel)
Then slowly turn away from me

Maby the suns light will be dim
But it wont matter anyhow
If mornings echo says we've sinned
Well it would what i would give now
And if we're victims of the nght
I won't be blinded by the light

Just call me angel of the morning (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me (baby)
Just call me angel of the morning (angel)
Then slowly turn away, I wont beg you to stay with me, me

through the tears, of the days, of the years
Baby, Baby, baby

Just call me angel of the morning (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me (baby)
Just call me angel of the morning (angel)
Just touch my cheek before you leave me (baby)

repeat to fade


8. Girl on the Wing ~ The Shins 

one wound-up punch of intuition
lays flat my whole take on us.
you're the girl on the wing of a barnstormer
the tidal rabbit who came of age before her time.

we could have been so good-natured
if i'd relented when you insisted,
but we've been backed against
all nature's walls far too long.

you felt abandoned by me,
i recall the sunshine as you were melting
and though the comedy softens the fall
they still hear us with their ears to the wall.

i sold all my evil motives,
no icicles stuck in my hide.
i'm through with riddles, i know we're little
just help me feel warm inside.

before we take this ride and let it slide
into the cracks where fall and winter collide.
i surrender all my gall in a song of modern love.
remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind.

we could have been so good-natured
if you'd relented when i insisted,
we take a week off, let the garden grow by itself
and let the gluttons fill themselves with all the worst of the gory nineties.
and though the comedy softens the fall, we still fall short.

before we take this ride and let it slide
into the cracks where fall and winter collide.
i surrender all my gall in a song of modern love.
remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind.


9. End Moraine ~ Sparta 

This is your history
You made what you will be
Facts are of no concern
They upset your story
The past is what we learn
It upholds your glory
Revisionist history

I want glaciers to scrape
I want to level this place
Everyone in it can go

The truth will tear this ground
Slowly melted down
Revisionist History

What you're taught
Free to forget
You're supposed to know
Learn on your own

It's exposed, End moraine
Funnel down, See with your own eyes
Simple talk, End moraine
Simple thought
And total loyalty
They'll build armies
In excuse for explorers
Know with your own eyes
Feel with our own hands


10. Fade Together ~ Franz Ferdinand 

So far away
Come on I'll take you far away
Let's get away
Come on let's make a get away

Once you have loved someone this much
you doubt it could fade
despite how much you'd like it to
God how you'd like it
you'd like it to fade

Let's fade together
Let's fade forever
Let's fade together
Let's fade forever
Let's fade together

If we get away
You know we might just stay away
So stay awake
Oh, why the hell should I stay awake?
When you're far away
Oh god you are so far away

I looked at your wall
Saw that old passport photograph
I look like I've just jumped the Berlin Wall
Berlin I love you
I'm starting to fade

Let's fade together
Let's fade forever
Let's fade together
Let's fade forever
Let's fade together
Let's fade forever
Let's fade together


11. Angel Pumping Gas ~ The Postal Service 

I saw you standing there
The wind blowing your hair
It's fate my life has brought me here to you

You walked over my way
I didn't know what to say.
I think that I love you.
But maybe it's just the fumes

Angel pumping gas
Why won't this moment last?
It's fate my life has brought me here today
Soon I'll be on my way
though I'd really like to stay
But the road is out there calling me away.
But I really need you here with me today.

You asked what can I do
I say unleaded fuel
You open up my tank start the pump

Grab a wet squeegee
and wipe my windshield clean.
When all the while my tank is filling up

Angel pumping gas
Why won't this moment last?
It's fate my life has brough me here today
Soon I'll be on my way
though I'd really like to stay.
But the road is out there calling me away.
But I really need you here with me today.

You asked will that be credit or cash
But my chevron card was lost in the trash
You say that you will have to pay inside
as my heart broke in two I felt like I could die

as I turn the key her eyes contact with me
we share our precious moment in a glance
and as I drive away her memories here to stay
her deep blue eyes have left me in a trance

Angel pumping gas
Why won't this moment last?
It's fate my life has brought me here today
Soon I'll be on my way
though I wish that I could stay
But the road is out there calling me away.

well maybe things are better off this way.


12. Broken Wings ~ Bryan Ferry 

Through the golden sunset
Across the borderline
Stands a cross
A simple sign
There the fires of evening
Reveal so many things
But who can mend broken wings?
Southern belles, fancy rings
Divorced from many things
As the story goes
Wish I could fly
Take the ever winding
Where the morning rain
Takes a cloud from the sky
There I long to love you
Love is everything
Who can mend broken wings?
Through the night, love is blind
The light of day not kind
The sense of loss you find
No sense at all
And should you gaze and wonder
Where the eagle flies
Fallen angels might sing
Who can mend broken wings?


13. Mascara ~ Interpol 

yes I sure miss the early days
I was so drunk
tied up in so many ways
looking for the sanctity of love cause
I might make you handsome
I might give you me
and handsome is getting awfully tough
oh to have my peace

now we're starting up the rain again
starting up the rain again
starting to look the same again
isn't that a shame?

and it goes fine
a fine wide mile
you'll be there for me sweety pie
you'll be there for the dream car
you go running away
cause I might make you handsome
I might if you plead
try the long way back
you could stay travel with the black cab
you can stay travelling with the black cab
baby that's alright with me

bitch slap maybelline, stay hidden, yeah remain unseen
bitch slap maybelline, stay hidden, yeah remain unseen
bitch slap maybelline, stay hidden, yeah remain unseen
bitch slap maybelline, stay hidden, yeah remain unseen

babe dont break, time breaks down
baby, at this rate time should slow down
Current Mood: calmcalm
