Do you listen to Fleet Foxes? Because I just realized about ten seconds ago that I love them. Literally. I've listened to exactly 31 seconds of one of their songs and I know already that I love them.
One of my favorite bands of all-time, no big deal. And I listed the lead singer as one of the reasons I don’t plan on shaving for quite some time. Commitment. LISTEN TO MYKONOS! Holy shit that song is good.
Also, me and my friend did a cover of Meadowlarks at an open mic. So check that one out too.
“You know how I define the economic and social classes in this country? The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there… just to scare the shit out of the middle class. Keep ‘em showing up at those jobs.”—George Carlin, Little Things We Share, 1992 (via absurdlakefront)
“So, my little Amélie, your bones aren’t made of glass. You can take life’s knocks. If you let this chance go by, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton.”—Amelie (via escapistmusings)
I really don’t have a favorite song but this one is close. Simply put, this song gets me. The melody, the instrumentals, the sick harmony at the end, the incredibly uplifting lyrics. People always shit on Coldplay but they don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about because Coldplay kick’s ass.
“Gravity release me and don’t ever hold me down, now my feet wont touch the ground”
Monday: Three classes and renting a tux somewhere in between
Tuesday: Choir and doing all of my homework for Women’s Changing Roles<- Well that never happened..
Wednesday: Choral Day while sick. (At least I get to dress up :D)
Thursday: Choir and Women’s Changing Roles…again! Tons of practice on Carmina<- Also, none of that happened either. picking up my tux sometime in between
Friday: Two classes, including a test I just found out about(<- got a 90!) and my 2 and a half hour music class (class did so bad that we all had to retake it! Not joking.)
Saturday: Concert day, which includes 8am rehearsal, Noon rehearsal, and performing in front of around 1000-2000 people in Avery Fisher Hall…while potentially still sick. (At least I get to walk around New York for a few more hours in a tux. Classy as fuck.)
Last I saw mother she rose from a chair When they caught me I’d just finished combing my hair ‘Cause a rabbit will run, as a colt does along with the mare We’ve all learned the earth while we carried the throne We dove under the rivers and under our clothes Now I still have a prayer, as sure as my settling bones
Last I saw mother she covered my ears When they caught me I offered the captain a beer ‘Cause a rabbit will run, and a lion has nothing to fear We bricked up the garden and oh, what it means And we’ve all kissed a virgin as if she were clean And I still have a prayer, despite all the colors I’ve seen
And judgment is just like a cup that we share I’ll jump over the wall and I’ll wait for you there Well past the weeds and our vision of things to come
We’ve all heard the rooster and all been denied And we’ve seen through the haze and the spit in our eyes And I still have a prayer, a well-weathered word to the wise
Last I saw mother she smelled like a rose When they caught me the captain, he opened my nose ‘Cause a rabbit will run, and the wind takes a bird where it blows We all traded lovers and woke up alone And we clapped for the king, though our fingers were cold And I still have a prayer, because I love what I cannot control
Last I saw mother, she acted surprised When they caught me the captain, he cried like a child ‘Cause a rabbit will run, and good dogs together go wild We all live in grace at the end of the day And we’ve armed all the children we thought we’d betrayed And I still have a prayer, but too few occasions to pray
And judgment is just like a cup that we share I’ll jump over the wall and I’ll wait for you there Well past the weeds and our visions of things to come
And we’ve all found a reason for hiding the gun And we’ve helped out a few if we’ve hurt anyone And I still have a prayer and so be it, I’ve done what I’ve done
Last I saw mother, she blew me a kiss When they caught me the cups caught the blood from my wrist ‘Cause a rabbit will run, and a pig has to lay in it’s piss We’ve all given half to the hand in our face We’ve all taken a stone from the holiest place And I still have a prayer, and I’ve furthered the world in my wake
