People Are Strange – The Doors
People are strange when you’re a stranger / Faces look ugly when you’re alone / Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted / Streets are uneven when you’re down / When you’re strange / Faces come out of the rain / When you’re strange / No one remembers your name / When you’re strange / When you’re strange / When you’re strange. . .
Hungry Like The Wolf – Duran Duran
In touch with the ground / I’m on the hunt, I’m after you / Smell like I sound, I’m lost in a crowd / And I’m hungry like the wolf / Straddle the line in discord and rhyme / I’m on the hunt, I’m after you / Mouth is alive with juices like wine / And I’m hungry like the wolf!
Bones – MS MR
Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone / Boy with a broken soul / Heart with a gaping hole / Dark twisted fantasy turned to reality / Kissing death and losing my breath / Midnight hours cobble street passages / Forgotten savages, forgotten savages / Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone / Let her find a way to a better place / Broken dreams and silent screams / Empty churches with soulless curses / We found a way to escape the day.
Young & Beautiful – Lana Del Rey
I’ve seen the world, done it all / Had my cake now / Diamonds, brilliant, in Bel-Air now / Hot summer nights, mid July / When you and I were forever wild / The crazy days, city lights / The way you’d play with me like a child / Will you still love me / When I’m no longer young and beautiful? / Will you still love me / When I’ve got nothing but my aching soul? / I know you will, I know you will / I know that you will / Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?
Howl – Florence & The Machine
If you could only see the beast you’ve made of me / I held it in but now it seems you’ve set it running free / Screaming in the dark, I howl when we’re apart / Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart / My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in / You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl / My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in / You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to / Howl, howl / Howl, howl!
I’d Let You Win – PORTS
These burning ships / These filled up skips / Of memory / Been walking streets / Been filling sheets / In fantasy / Oh oh, I’d let you in / I’d let you win my heart again / Oh oh, I’d let you in / I’d let you win my heart again.
Afraid – No Wyld
Lost on your own / In the night / With no sight / No need to fear / When you’re near to the light / In my eyes there’s nothing left of you / You can’t rise if you’re see-through / Don’t be afraid, no / Don’t be afraid, no / Don’t be afraid, no / Don’t be afraid to lose. . .
Bad Moon Rising – Rasputina
Hope you got your things together / Hope you are quite prepared to die / Looks like we’re in for nasty weather / One eye is taken for an eye / Don’t go around tonight / It’s bound to take your life / There’s a bad moon on the rise / Don’t go around tonight / It’s bound to take your life / There’s a bad moon on the rise!
Hold On – Chord Overstreet
Hold on, I still want you / Come back, I still need you / Let me take your hand, I’ll make it right / I swear to love you all my life / Hold on, I still need you / I don’t wanna let go / I know I’m not that strong / I just wanna hear you / Saying baby, let’s go home / Let’s go home / Yeah, I just wanna take you home / Hold on, I still want you / Come back, I still need you. . .
Heathens – Twenty One Pilots
Welcome to the room of people / Who have rooms of people that they loved one day / Docked away / Just because we check the guns at the door / Doesn’t mean our brains will change from hand grenades / You’re lovin’ on the psychopath sitting next to you / You’re lovin’ on the murderer sitting next to you / You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?” / But after all I’ve said, please don’t forget / All my friends are heathens, take it slow / Wait for them to ask you who you know / Please don’t make any sudden moves / You don’t know the half of the abuse.
If I Was Your Vampire – Marilyn Manson
If I was your vampire, certain as the moon / Instead of killing time, we’ll have each other till the sun / If I was your vampire, death waits for no one / Hold my hands across your face because I think our time has come / Blood-stained sheets / In the shape of your heart / This is where it starts / Blood-stained sheets / In the shape of your heart / This is where it starts / This is where it will end / Here comes the moon again!
