Lyrics du Jour

Ok, my current album that I'm fixated on is the new Wallflowers CD, Rebel, Sweetheart. I think that Jakob Dylan's just as talented as his dad (who I like lyrically and musically, just not vocally - seen him in concert twice, still no clue what he said), and there's a song on their new CD that I just love, and it tends to sum up what I feel about stuff sometimes. Oh, and there's a link to my Launchcast station on the right over there. Feel free to click.

"God Says Nothing Back"

Seems like the world's gone underground
No gods or heroes
Dare to go down
Tear drops from a hole in heaven come
Overhead like ravens
Dropping down like bombs
Through the mornings silver frosted glow
God says nothing back
But I told you so
I told you so

God bless the void
Of my daydreams
Back in the snow
Making angel wings
Slow motion dancing lights have gone
Sail beneath the burning yellow sun
I'm calling out to the deep ends of my bones
Time says nothing back
But I told you so
I told you so

Still waters rising in my mind
Black and deep
Smoke behind my eyes
Last night I could not sleep at all
I hallucinated that you were in my arms
To be in your heart
I filled my own
Love says nothing back
But I told you so
I told you so

I'm still here
And climbing every rung
If someone saw something
Now someone speak up
Back over the rotted bridge I cross
Open up these graves
Let these bodies talk
I'm buried under leaves blood red and gold
Death says nothing back
But I told you so
I told you so....

Yeah, let any idiot on a top 40 station write THAT.
