King of a One Horse Town by Dan Auerbach

Everyday is just a little white lie
Telling myself I'm gettin' by
I just stay in this room and cry
The snow it covers up the ground
And I can't hear a single sound

I'd turn off the TV and go for a drive
But I can't see there's any signs of life
Except a Christmas tree with blinking lights
I coulda made it but I messed around
I'm a loser with a rusted crown
Scared if I jump in the ocean I might drown

King of a One Horse Town
I'm the King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

I thought about leaving but I don't know
Wouldn't even know anywhere to go
Guess I'll stay on desolation row
Go get stoned and hang around
The beat of my drum is the only sound
I would jump into the ocean but I'm scared I'd drown

King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

I'm a King of a One Horse Town
King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

THE ONE HORSE TOWN IN THE VID IS GRAND JUNCTION.

In The End by Linkin Park

It starts with one...
One thing I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time

All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away

It's so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on did-didn't even know
I wasted it all just to watch you go

I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how I tried so hard

I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so far
Far

Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me in the end
In the end

You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

[2x]
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

GOOD BYE CHESTER... ROCK ON...

Walking on the Burining Coal by Gogal Bordello

I was walking on one cloudy morning
With uncertain shadow on my soul
Underneath the shadow there was yearning
To be done walking on the burning coal

I'm walking
Burning
Walking
I walking on the burning coal
I'm walking
Ain't it easier to fall

Leave behind scenarios made for you
And stay on a path to your own pole
Ain't no ordinary stroll
Gets the sailor knot in my chest undone

And the shadow
Feels the soul
Turned to ashes
Turned aerial
And you don't need no one to walk you through it
Through this would be world burial

I'm walking
Burning
Walking
I walking on the burning coal
Coal
Coal
Ain't it easier to

DUDE, DONT WALK ON BURNING COAL AND, GUESS WHAT? IT WONT HURT.

The Original Tap Dancing Kid by Jimmie Spheeris

my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid
I would have given anything
just to sing the way he did
he'd serenade the wayward girls
beneath the moon and the stars
sneak down by the water hole
smokin' one of dad's cigars
the girls were wild about him
Jenny even flipped her lid
my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid
he said he'd blaze a trail around the sun
and no one could hold him back
he'd shoot the rapids on the mighty river
and howl like Wolfman Jack
they give our boy a glad hand
they said "Son, what you gonna do?"
"I'm gonna roam my happy hunting grounds
In my funky pair of canvas shoes"
the girls were wild about him
Jenny even flipped her lid
my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid
now he's just a drifter
and he rides on the tail of the wind
every time I see the Jackson Five
well I always think of him
he says "Listen to me brother
Is there hope for a native son?"
well don't expect no fanfare kid
they only give it to you when you're young
the girls were wild about him
Jenny even flipped her lid
my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid

IT IS TRUE. THEY ONLY GIVE IT TO YOU WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG.

Game of Love by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders

The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
It started long ago in the Garden of Eden
When Adam said to Eve, baby, you're for me
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
Come on baby 'cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me, hold me tight
Play the game of love
The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
Come on baby 'cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me, hold me tight
Play the game of love
The game of love, (love), love, (love), la la la la la love
The game of love, (love), love, (love), la la la la la love
The game of love baby, the game of la la la la love
The game of love baby, the game of la la la la love

A Girl and His Cat by Biffy Clyro

I never have fun but I wouldn't say no
I guess that's my prerogative
I'll never give up and I'll never look down
That would be the end of it

Look at me now screaming up and down
With huge degrees of lethargy
Some may say that I'm lying down
That don't mean a fuck to me

I should remove you all, nothing ventured, nothing maimed
Hang on your suffering wall to decompose and rearrange
Sit tight with your lonely rose, beauty is the death of pain
Don't see it coming at all, so we control and we contain

This is what you wanted to be
This is what you wanted

This is your house, this is not your home
I don't know if we're ever gonna belong
You can build a house but not a home
It will always stand on shaky ground

I wanna play dumb but I can't let go
Of my responsibilities
Why have one? You can take all ten
I bet that's not enough for you

I should remove you all, nothing ventured, nothing maimed
Hang on your suffering wall to decompose and rearrange

This is what you wanted to be
This is what you wanted

This is your house, this is not your home
I don't know if we're ever gonna belong
You can build a house but not a home
It will always stand on shaky ground

We are looking for love
But you're baying for blood
[x2]

This is what you wanted to be
This is what you wanted

THIS SONG CAPTURE MY EXPERIENCE OF GROWING OLDER. JUST KEEP MOVING. DONT LOOK DOWN.
