Even More Silverchair

Have probably played this song a kajillion times since Saturday. So once again, I needed to share it with you.

The live version doesn't sound quite as polished as the studio version, but I like them both. Live music rocks for so many reasons...sometimes I prefer the live stuff with energy and ambiance over the packaged CD version.

Was originally gonna do Top 25, but it was too much trouble to take out all the extra info. Obviously I'm in a lazy mood today.

OK, back to my grocery list.


Current Favorite Song

Not that you're the one
Not to say I'm right
Not to say today
And not to say a thing tonight


But suffice it to say
We're leaving things unsaid
We sing ourselves to sleep
Watching the day lie down instead

And we are leaving some things unsaid
And we are breathing deeper instead

We're both pretty sure
Neither one can tell
We seem difficult
What we got is hard as hell

A hundred thousand words could not quite explain
So I walk you to your car And we can talk it out in the rain

And we are leaving some things unsaid
And we are breathing deeper instead
And we are leaving some things unsaid

I can sing myself to sleep
No more

Not that you're the one
Not to say I'm right
Not to say today
And not to say a thing tonight

If You Live In Kansas

...go see Rise Against at the Beaumont Club tonite.

They were THAT GOOD last night.

Played tons of stuff from their 'Siren Song of the Counter Culture' CD as well as more tons of stuff from their current release 'The Sufferer and the Witness'.

The only odd thing last night...that had nothing to do with the band...is that alcohol sales were confined to the third tier. Of all the times I've been to the Fillmore since moving here in January (about 5-6 times) I've never seen that done before. Not only were the sales kept upstairs, but the booze was sequestered there too :-(

Not quite the same rockin' out without a Jager Bomb to sip, but I lived.


My 3 favorite songs from the concert :

'Swing Life Away'

Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

'Blood To Bleed'

“I don’t love you anymore” is all I remember you telling me
Never have I felt so cold
But I've no more blood to bleed
'Cause my heart has been draining into the sea

Steps, I take in your footsteps
Aren't getting me closer to what is left
Of the dreams of what I once claimed to know
Within my bones this resonates
Boiling blood will circulate
Could you tell me again what you did this for?

'The Good Left Undone"

All because of you,
I haven't slept in so long,
when I do I dream,
of drowning in the ocean,
longing for the shore,
where I can lay my head down,
(inside these arms of yours)

All because of you,
I believe in angels,
not the kind with wings,
no, not the kind with halos,
the kind that bring you home,
when home becomes a strange place,
I'll follow your voice,
all you have to do is,
SHOUT IT OUT!


Totally Beyond Rocks

Have been in cheapskate mode so I waited until today to buy the new AFI CD Decemberunderground.

Juicy, yummy, scrumptious rock. LOVE IT!

Different from their self-titled release (Silver and Cold is one of my all-time faves...it's my current ringtone on my cell) the songs are definitely more radio play friendly than the last CD.

Cannot wait to see them 11 July.

Am definitely going to sleep with a smile on my face tonite....ummm...this morning??

[Edit- Weds right before midnite...this stuff keeps getting better each time I play it!]
