“Follow the leader,
Stay in the lines.
What will people think of what you’ve done this time?

Go with the crowd,
Surely somebody knows.
Why we’re all wearing the Emperor’s Clothes?

Play it safe.
Play by the rules.
Or don’t play at all,
What if you lose?

That’s not the secret,
But I know what is –
Everybody dies but not everyone lives. Everybody dies but not everyone lives.

I’m gonna rock like I’ve got the cats on my tail!
I’m gonna live my life like I’m out on bail!
I’m gonna be up front!
Gonna blaze a trail!

I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna cross that line!

Everybody freeze,
Don’t step over the line.
Don’t stand up they’ll shoot down the first one who tries.

Try to change the world,
They’ll think you’re out of your mind! (revolutions start when someone crosses the line).

They want us to lie down,
Give into the lies!
Nothing has to change and no one has to die.

That’s not the secret, But I know what is –
Everybody dies but not everyone lives. Everybody dies but not everyone lives.

I’m gonna rock like I’ve got the cats on my tail!
I’m gonna live my life like I’m out on bail!
I’m Gonna be up front,
Gonna blaze the trail!

I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna cross that line!

I’m gonna cross that line!

I’m gonna rock like I’ve got the cats on my tail!
I’m gonna live my life like I’m out on bail!
I’m Gonna be up front,
Gonna blaze the trail!

I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna cross that line!

Rock like I’ve got the cats on my tail!
I’m gonna live my life like I’m out on bail!
I’m Gonna be up front,
Gonna blaze the trail!

I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna! I’m gonna cross that line!”

"For many days we traveled from a distant place and time
To reach a place they call the planet Earth
There was to be a celebration
On the mission of the sacred heart.

The planet Earth from way up there is beautiful and blue
And floating softly through a rainbow
But when you touch down things look different here
At the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I
Hows life on earth
Living on the earth
When all the stars above lay icy fingers down on me
Living on the earth

On a dirty worn-out sidewalk sits a mother with a baby
In her vale of tears she sees no rainbow
And someone's singing from a window
In the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I
Hows life on earth
Living on the earth
And when the stars above lay icy fingers down on me
Living on the earth

There's a building on a corner in a city in a land
On a place they call the planet Earth
My orders are to sit here and watch the world go by
From the mission of the sacred heart

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I

Watching all the days roll by
Who are you and who am I

Hows life on earth
What is it worth"

“I’ll save you

An echo from the hall

And I’ll paint you

A dreamscape on your bedroom wall

Pretend you’re not alone

Like you are centre stage on Broadway

Cause when you’re on your own

A little opera goes a long way

I’ll meet you

Where the page proclaims the end

And I’ll make do

With the fractions my reactions bend

Pretend you’re not alone

Like you are centre stage on Broadway

Cause when you’re on your own

A little opera goes a long way

I’ll capsize

This high rise

And weld a cable car

Then I’ll drive down

To some south-western town

And end up where you are

Pretend you’re not alone

Like you are centre stage on Broadway

Cause when you’re on your own

A little opera goes a long way

I’ll reset

Your silhouette

And be your parasol

So hold on to

Your florescent view

And if you slip and fall

I will catch you”

I really like this song for some reason… I guess the abstract lyrics that really make no sense at all really appeal to me… hmm…

This weeks song is “Blue and Red” by Sky Sailing, in their [his] one and only album (of current) “An Airplane Carried Me To Bed”.

For those of you who don’t know, Sky Sailing is the Owl City before the Owl City. Adam Young recorded all the songs on “AACMTB” in his basement (like all his other songs), on his own, before “Of June” (the hit that started Owl City). I believe, however, that he recorded Sky Sailing AFTER his other “other projects” (think Port Blue, Aquarium, Windsor Airlift, Novel, etc etc), as these were recorded whilst he was in high school, and Sky Sailing was recorded whilst he was in his late teens or 20’s. The vocals in Sky Sailing, however, are recent: he re-recorded the vocals just before releasing “AACMTB” in 2011 (or 2010… but I”m pretty sure it’s 2011, because he released Ocean Eyes in 2010… anywho).

So sound is really nice in this song… lots of piano and electronic stuff… Sky Sailing is actually notorious for its mainly guitar, but this song has a lot of piano (or keyboard, same sound). It’s also kinda slow… the lyrics are so short because they are said very slowly and clearly, and are broken up with lots of music. It’s just a really nice song (:

Oh satellite above

(Where are you)

So many things I have to tell you of

(Please come back soon)

You went through an open door

Or a hole in the floor

You vanished and I can’t see you anymore

Dreams never die

When we sleep

Beneath the open sky

In the deep

Shades overhead

Of blue and red

Is this the end

Will you come back again

I searched beyond the clouds

(Are you there)

And I walked sadly onward through the crowds

(Alone somewhere)

And I saw beyond the blur

To right where you were

And I beheld a sight so pure

Dreams never die

When we sleep

Beneath the open sky

In the deep

Shades over head

Of blue and red

Is this the end

Will you come back again

“Nero Space flyer on ice,

misplace your telescopes and these ropes suffice.

The city streets need painting fast and our old homes need fixed.

I finally see that this coast is bedding down in the sound that wakes up our Host.

Dance record the phones in those rooms,

be right there police don’t care.

Anyway they make it faster,

better late than never after.

Set on Sunday the earth is war,

and I don’t see why not.

You hop on high-ways they can’t recall,

the better perf(?) if they’re cars at all.

And when at most there’d release this place,

their branches shocked with disbelief.

*yelling* (something about people letting him down, his eyes seeing clear, this is what he wanted, being young? this part very hard to interpret).

Repeat”
