A Long December - Counting Crows


A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leavin'
Now the days go by so fast

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven I wish you would

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California I think you should

Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean I guess I should

To Kill A Stranger - Fozzy


I'm drowning in the shadows, that creep in my mind
And it's hard to escape, when there's no place left for me to hide
And I keep on running from the blood on my hands
The battle is won but will it ever end
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
Darkness has engulfed all the light in my life
And my thirst to kill has grown stronger over time
And I keep on running from the blood on my hands
The battle is won but will it ever end
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
The truth you always knew
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
It's the fever that yearns for the thrill of the kill
And I keep on running from the blood on my hands
The battle is won but will it ever end
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
After all that we've been through
Who am I to kill a stranger
The truth you always knew
Who am I, a little stranger
And now I'm killing you

In My Tree - Pearl Jam


Up here in my tree, yeah
Newspapers matter not to me, yeah
No more crowbars to my head, yeah
I'm tradin' stories with the leaves instead, yeah

Wave to all my friends, yeah
They don't seem to notice me, no
All their eyes trained on the street, yo, oh
Sidewalk, cigarettes and seen the tempted yeah

It's up here so high, I start to mistake
Up here so high in the sky, I scrape
I'm so high I hold just one breath
A deep breath in my chest, just like innocence

I remember when, yeah
I swore I blew everything away
Let's say knowledge is a tree, yeah
It's growin' up just like me, yeah

I'm so light, the wind he shakes
And I'm so high up in the sky, I scrape, yeah
I'm so high, I hold just one breath
To go back to my nest, sleeping innocence

Up here so high, the boughs may break
Up here so high in the sky I sway
And my eyes peeled both wide open
And I got a glimpse of my innocence
Got back my innocence, really got it, still got it
