Nina Simone “Ain’t Got No (I Got Life)”

I ain’t got no home, ain’t got no shoes
Ain’t got no money, ain’t got no class
Ain’t got no skirts, ain’t got no sweater
Ain’t got no perfume, ain’t got no bed
Ain’t got no mind

Ain’t got no mother, ain’t got no culture
Ain’t got no friends, ain’t got no schooling
Ain’t got no love, ain’t got no name
Ain’t got no ticket, ain’t got no token
Ain’t got no God

And what have I got?
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what have I got
Nobody can take away?

Got my hair, got my head
Got my brains, got my ears
Got my eyes, got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, got my chin
Got my neck, got my boobs
Got my heart, got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, got my hands
Got my fingers, got my legs
Got my feet, got my toes
Got my liver, got my blood

I’ve got life, I’ve got my freedom
I’ve got the life

I’ve got the life
And I’m gonna keep it
I’ve got the life
And nobody’s gonna take it away
I’ve got the life

Somebody That I Used To Know

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know

Somebody…

Emilie Autumn – What If

Here you sit in your high back chair,
I Wonder how the veiw is from there,
I wouldn’t know because I like to sit,
Upon the floor, Yeah upon the flood,

If you like we could play a game,
Lets pretend that it’s all the same,
But you will have to look much closer,
Than you do, closer than you do,

And i’m far to tired to stay here anymore,
And I don’t care what you think anyway,
Because you think you were wrong about me,
What if you were, yeah what if you were,

And what if i’m a snowstorm burning,
What if i’m a world unturning,
What if i’m an ocean, far to shallow, much to deep,
What if i’m the kindest demon,
Something you may not believe in,
What if i’m a siren singing gentlemen to sleep,

I know you’ve got it figured out,
Tell me what I am all about,
I just might learn a thing or two,
Hundred about you maybe about you,

I’m the end of your telescope,
I don’t change just to suit your vision,
Because I am bound by a fraying rope,
Around my hands, tied around my hands,

And you close your eyes when I say i’m breaking free,
And put your hands over both your ears,
Because you cannot stand to believe i’m not,
The prefect girl you thought,
But what have I got to lose,

What if i’m a weeping willow,
Laughing tears upon my pillow,
What if i’m a socilite who wants to be alone,
What if i’m a toothless leopard,

What if i’m a sheepless shepard,
What if i’m an angel without wings to take me home,

You don’t know me, Never will never will,
I’m outside your picture frame and the glass is breaking down,
You can’t see me, never will never will,
If your never gunna see,

What if i’m a crowded desert,
Too much pain with little pleasure,
What if i’m the nicest place you never want to go,
What if I don’t know who I am,

What will keep us both from trying,
To find out and when you have,
Be sure to let me know,

What if I’m a snowstorm burning
What if I’m a world unturning
What if I’m an ocean, far too shallow, much too deep
What if I’m the kindest demon

Something you may not believe in
What if I’m a siren singing gentlemen to sleep
Sleep…
Sleep…


Radiohead – Creep

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fucking special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I’m not around
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell I’m doing here?
I don’t belong here

She’s running out the door
She’s running out
She runs runs runs

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so fucking special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here
I don’t belong here
