Pray for rain

Pure Bathing Culture

/ Pray for rain /

Are you careless like a child?
When you lost her did you smile?
Do you stumble are you wild?
Are you fading in the shadows?
Is it always on your mind?
When they ask do you decline?
Are you ruthless? are you kind?

Or are you cut in two
Cut all the way through
Are you cut in two
Cut all the way through

Are you hot and heavy jungle?
Visions lifted in the lace
Was it just a little taste?
Did you say it to his face?
Now you’re dancing in the shadows
And they’re calling out your name
Is is pleasure? is it pain?
Did you pray for rain?

Summertime Blues

Eddie Cochran

/ Summertime Blues /

I’m a-gonna raise a fuss
I’m a-gonna raise a holler
About workin’ all summer
Just-a trying to earn a dollar

Every time I call my baby
Try to get a date
My boss says “No dice, son
You gotta work late”

Sometimes I wonder
What I’m-a gonna do
But there ain’t no cure
For the summertime blues

Well my mama and papa told me
“Son, you gotta make some money
If you wanna use the car
To go a-ridin’ next Sunday”

Well, I didn’t go to work
Told the boss I was sick
“You can’t use the car
Cause you didn’t work a lick”

Sometimes I wonder
What I’m-a gonna do
But there ain’t no cure
For the summertime blues

I’m gonna take two weeks
Gonna have a fine vacation
I’m gonna take my problem
To the United Nations

Well, I called my congressman
And he said, quote:
“I’d like to help you, son
But you’re too young to vote”

Sometimes I wonder
What I’m-a gonna do
But there ain’t no cure
For the summertime blues

Manipulator

Ty Segall

/ Manipulator /

Cheap love, I’m wrapped in milk
Drug rug that’s smooth as silk
You are the blood line guilt
Manipulator

Oooh, ooh, ooh (manipulator)

I use your telephone
To sneak inside your home
My finest friend
Manipulator

Oooh, ooh, ooh (manipulator)

Oooh, ooh, ooh (manipulator)

(Manipulator, manipulator, manipulator, manipulator)
(Manipulator, manipulator, manipulator, manipulator)

3rd Of May

Fleet Foxes

/ 3rd Of May /

Light ended the night, but the song remained
And I was hiding by the stair, half here
Half there, past the lashing rain
And as the sky[e] would petal white, old innocent lies came to mind
As we stood, congregated, at the firing line

Night ended the fight, but the song remained
And so I headed to the wall
Turned tail to call to the new domain
As if in the sight of sea, you’re suddenly free
But it’s all the same…
Oh, but I can hear you, loud in the center
Aren’t we made to be crowded together, like leaves?

Was I too slow? Did you change overnight?
Second son, on the other line…

Now, back in our town as a castaway
I’m reminded of the time it all fell in line, on the third of May
As if it were designed, painted in sand to be washed away
Oh, but I can hear you, loud in the center
Aren’t we made to be crowded together, like leaves
Was I too slow? Did I change overnight?
Second son, for the second time…

Can I be light and free?
If I lead you through the fury will you call to me?
And is all that I might owe you carved on ivory?

But all will fade. All I say. All I needed
As a flash in the eye, I wouldn’t deny, all receded

Life unfolds in pools of gold
I am only owed this shape if I make a line to hold
To be held within one’s self is deathlike, oh I know

But all will be, for mine and me, as we make it
And the size of the fray, can’t take it away, they won’t make it

I was a fool
Crime after crime to confess to
But I hold the fleet angel, she’ll bless you
Hold fast to the wing. Hold fast to the wing
