silentbob The Best Deceptions

I heard about your trip. I hear about your souvenirs. I heard about the cool breeze, in the cool nights, and the cool guys you spent them with. Well I guess I should have heard of them for you. I guess I should have heard of them from you.
Don't you see, don't you see that the charade is over? and all the "Best Deceptions" and "Clever Cover Story" awards go to you.

So kiss me hard 'cause this will be the last time that I let you. You will be back some day and this awkward kiss that tells of other people's lips will be of service to keeping you away.

I heard about your regrets. I heard that you were feeling sorry. I heard from someone that you wish you could set things right between us. Well, I guess I should have heard of that from you. I guess I should have heard of that from you.

Don't you see, don't you see that the charade is over? And all the "Best Deceptions" and the "Clever Cover Story" awards go to you.

So kiss me hard, 'cause this will be the last time that I let you. You will be back someday and this awkward kiss that screams of other people's lips will be of service to keeping you away.

I'm waiting for blood to flow to my fingers, I'll be back someday and this awkward kiss that screams of other people's lips will be of service to keeping you away.

I'm waiting for blood to flow to my fingers, I'll be all right when my hands get warm.

Ignoring the phone, I'd rather say nothing. I'd rather you'd never heard my voice.

You're calling too late, too late to be gracious and you do not warrant long good-byes. You're calling too late. You're calling too late. You're calling too late.

Casey I love that song, and that band. I wish I could have gone to see them.



Again I Go Unnoticed

So quiet another wasted night, the television steals the conversation. Exhale, another wasted breath, again it goes unnoticed. Please tell me that you're just feeling tired cause if its more than that I feel that I might break out of touch, out of time.
Close lipped another good night kiss is robbed of all its passion. Your grip, another time is slack it leaves me feeling empty. I'll wait until tomorrow maybe you'll feel better then, maybe we'll be better then.

So what's another day when I can't bear these nights of thoughts of going on without you. This mood of yours is temporary and it seems worth the wait to see you smile again. Out of the corner of your eye won't be the only way you look at me then.

bijou jesus

we saw this guy live last week with rival_schools_united_by_fate .

this show, jesus christ.

i have never seen more thick black glasses and messenger bags in my whole life.

the show was pretty good. this guy's voice is fucking amazing, i mean SWEET.

for some reason the whole experience was rather, eh, unsettling. i dont know why.

Dashboard will always remind me of summer, my red skirt with white polka dots, coffee at the corner table in the Chrome with Bobby (silentbob), and the roof of the shelter house in Call Park and so many of those other crazy things...oh...those what-cha-ma-call-its...!...boys.

mind(e.e) all i have to say is: EXHALE

and the monday show at HOB kicked ass
as did the 4 hour drive i had afterwards
it kicked mine anyway
and my psych test grade

I HEART DASHBOARD... yet... AGAIN I GO UNNOTICED
020331
...
unhinged it was 4am
and i was washing the blood
out of my sheets
and i turned on mtv
and it was the first time i ever heard them
something about your hair being everywhere
and i thought of winter gardens
and the fact that i haven't vacuumed my floor
020331
...
sweetheart of the song tra bong your hair it's everywhere...
screaming infidelities
020402
...
unhinged yes, that's the one
reminds me of a jim_carroll poem from his newest book
takes about finding her hair everywhere after she's gone
020402
...
sweetheart of the song tra bong Reminds me of a poem too - by Jack Gilbert. It's called Married.

I came back from the funeral and crawled
around the apartment, crying hard,
searching for my wife's hair.
For two months got them from the drain,
from the vacuum cleaner, under the refridgerator,
and off the clothes in the closet.
But after other Japaneses women came,
there was no way to be sure which were
hers, and I stopped. A year later,
repotting Michiko's avocado, I find
a long black hair tangled in the dirt.

dashboard_ventalation filled with anger, rage, and leftover pizza, i sit and wonder the things least prepared. an aquired introver at its calmest cant hear the pain i slay
have you considerd the past? reveiling the outtakes on life that threatin well being and wealth of fufilment.
well dear sir i regret to inform you that i care so little that it means to much. let me close my eyes and wander, it may be aimlesly, but its better than the dim future incline uphold

unhinged jim_carroll

while she's gone (excerpts)

How I hunger to devour it to devour you
Slowly, gently, vicious.

I chew on the pubic hairs you left on the sheet
Like a country boy chews a blade of grass as he walks
Near a pond, skimming flat rocks across the water.
....
I keep finding your long straight hairs
In the blankets in the carpet on the arm
Of the chair where you were working
Perfecting your calligraphy
The lavish tyranny of words

Now I watch the red in each long strand shine, twisted
Between my thumb and forefinger in the window light
I tied one around the neck of an alabaster bear
The rest I just continue to drape across the roses
In the wine bottle beside the kitchen window
It's beginning to look like a spider's web. It seems
That each symbol possible, in time, finds its way back to me.

I put my faith in I put my I put mine in I put my faith in you
....
You called from a phone by a lake
Deep in the canopy of black forests
The entire country deciduous, leaves rotting
Among the fresh angel skin a heart flown so far, it's fallen
It's grey among the leaves like a dying frog
And, seeing it, you step away, glad you avoided it
I found another of your hairs on the floor
This time I just threw it away it's becoming old
.....

someday i might post the rest of this. it's really long and reading it right now is hurting my heart.
020404
...
dashboard_ventilation there's somthing here beneath my hair that kinda looks like my face.
this adiction is lame. leaving an awful after taste,it poisons my "future"
and leaves you with and uneventfull conquest of regret.
this joke your telling, it has a punch line, i just dont think its funny.

kill rhythm screaming infidelities

i'm missing your bed, i never sleep, avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak, and this bottle of beast is taking me home. im cuddling close to blankets and sheets, but you're not alone and youre not discreet. make sure i know who's taking you home. i'm reading your note over again, there's not a word that i comprehend, except where you signed it i will love always and forever. and as for now im gonna hear the saddest songs and sit alone and wonder how youre making out. and as for me i wish that i was anywhere with anyone making out. i'm missing your laugh, how did it break? and when did your eyes begin to look fake? i hope youre as happy as youre pretending. i'm cuddling close to blankets and sheets, and i am alone in my defeat. i wish i knew you were safely at home. i'm missing your bed, i never sleep, avoiding the spots where we'd have to speak and this bottle of beast is taking me home. well as for now i'm gonna hear the saddest songs and sit alone and wonder how youre making out. and as for me i wish that i was anywhere with anyone making out. your hair, it's everywhere, screaming infidelities, and taking its wear...

silentbob loves you kill rhythm

it was a long time before i could listen to dashboard. i think that through time you will be able to separate your situation from the music. at least, that is waht i was able to do
020413

kill rhythm i can listen to them, its just that it upsets me that i can relate to the sad songs...it weird. me and my friend were talking about how sad screaming infidelities is. a week ago. and last night, i could do nothing more than relate to it... 020414

unhinged "you're depressed all the time because all you listen to is depressing music. listen to something happy would you?" 020619
...
kill rhythm depressing music does not necessarily make one depressed. but in my opinion, it does COMFORT the depressed. when i am sad, i dont like listening to happy songs. it just isnt right. like if i am having a really shitty day, i cant listen to nathaniel's song by for_squirrels because its too happy. the whistling would just make me find a bottle of pills. ship_in_the_sand on the other hand, by sophia, would actually make me feel, not necessarily better, but not worse. 020619

silentbob depressing music also can make a happy person depressed.
and it can also make a depressed person suicidal.

oh-so-quiet hey i hate to rub it in, but i'm going to their concert tonight! 020719

lady lunchbox "for you to notice me" is one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard. there's something about the music itself, it gets to me more than the words do.

and, to quote my mother: "i feel really sorry for this guy. he obviously can't get a girlfriend."

silentbob dashboard has released the demo of a new song on their webpage www.dashboardconfessional.com and these are the lyrics, the most risque lyrics squeaky-clean dashboard has ever had!



Tonight I'll Take What I Can Get


I've got my eye on top shelf liquor,
With taste so smooth it
Hits you quicker.
But you've only got the well.

And I've got an eye for top tier women
With legs so long they go straight to heaven,
But this old bunch looks like hell.

But tonight I'll take what I can get.

I'd like to hear a great musician
With strange ideas and grand ambition,
But this guy, he's got trouble with chords.

And I'd like to leave this game a winner
Head held high, the luck of beginners
But this old losers crawling out on all fours.

But tonight I'll take what I can get.

Well this drink will do,
And girl you look all right,
And this band is playing like hell tonight.

These dice are loaded
And man I am too
I might be losing but I'm leaving soon.

With the prettiest girl
To enter this dump,
She drank all of the whiskey but she left me the rum
And tonight I'll take what I can get

I've got my sights on brand new beginnings
Brand new starts make saints of sinners
But I'm doomed to live in my past

Live nude girls says the sign out front,
But old dead dreams are dancing in front,
Of old dead dreamers with washed up luck,
Selling love for cash

Well tonight I'll take what I can get.

This old story gets stale and dry,
No matter how I try and try
To spin this fable
Fresh and new

You strung me along
Like a tease on prom night
Getting me loose but
Leaving me uptight
Please tell me that
Some of that love was true.

Tonight I'll take what I can get

Well this drink will do,
And girl you look all right,
And this band is playing like hell tonight.

These dice are loaded
And man I am too
I might be losing but I'm leaving soon.

With the prettiest girl
To enter this dump,
She drank all of the whiskey but she left me the rum
And tonight I'll take what I can get.

celestias shadow hands down has been stuck in my head on and off for the last 3 months. it's driving me crazy. on the other hand, thank any god there is that it's not a creed song. 031013

nomatter I am greatly infatuated with Chris Carrabba right now... but what girl isn't?
The music is just so meaninful. They lyrics, his voice. I can't even pick a favorite song.
I bought the Unplugged cd, everyone keeps telling me it's 'weird'. I love it.
And down to the edge of the water,
where we'll spill our guts,
and we'll name our fears.
I'll give you this picture.
Keep it and don't be scared.

the archangelofirony when depression sets in, i dont think the songs matter anymore. i used to love acoustic emo. all of it just seems like a long song now, and i cant even figure out what i'm listening for anymore. and i guess the things all of you have said make me feel even more lonely because although i have sports, student govt, clubs and popularity, i feel empty. i remember when i used to think about the crap all of you keep going on and on about. and it hurts mostly because i miss it but even more because i cant have it without first coming out. 031231
