Lyrics of the year

Hidden Lakes and Uniforms by Shearwater.

These are not taken from songs released this year. ;)

Overall: I HAVE to get to TEXAS!!!! (from Tori Amos - Black-Dove (January))

Honorable mentions: Veins by Charlotte Martin, my anthem for some very important happenings past year. It fits so well that I can only quote the whole song (a thing I usually don't do).

VEINS

I know you know
Let the life come back and force through my veins
It goes, it goes
Through the protons, neutrons securing the frame
Say yes, say no
It's a matter of me forcing the praise
Put on the new woman, man, and child who are breaking their braces

The catacombs
And revolving doors inside of my brain
Preachers and whores
And the neon pulpits burst into flames
I come from both sides of me and either side of the tracks
Humbling the ghosts
Let the life that floods my veins bring me back

The unshackling of the chains on my wrists
The loyalty to pain that resists
And the greatest books are talking about this
Why must everybody die to exist?


Hello, my love
Seeking passages and food for your soul
On 95
Look ahead 'cause they're not filling that hole yet
Come lay your hands over mine and it will make us both brave
Braver to know
Let the life, the life force back in your veins

The unshackling of the chains on my wrists
The loyalty to pain that resists
And the greatest books are talking about this
Why must everybody die to exist?

Are you ready for the power of God?
Are you waiting for the saints to all nod?
At the girl who should be raised from the dead?
At the demons who've been forced from my head?


Oh hallelujah
Oh hallelujah
Oh hallelujah I have come undone

Oh hallelujah
Oh hallelujah
Oh hallelujah I have come undone

The unshackling of the chains on my wrists
The loyalty to pain that resists
And the greatest books are talking about this
Why must everybody die to exist?

Are you ready for the power of God?
Are you waiting for the saints to all nod?
At the girl who should be raised from the dead?
At the demons who've been forced from my head?
