Signing Emo


 

Signing Emo – Mc Lars

 

Once upon a time, in the city of Los Angeles…
“Marty, Marty listen to me. Bring me something the kids will cry for.
Get out there, and get us stoked!”

Meet Marty, major label A&R scout, forty years old, gut hanging out.
Red Ferrari, Marty living in L.A. bumps another line to get through the day.
Dumped by his girl, he paid for her liposuction,
His friends call him “Money”, in his introduction.
And Marty knows nothing but claims to know it all,
Lose the flat screen TV if he drops the ball.
You’re as good as your last hit, find the next big thing.
If he doesn’t bring the bling, his cell phone won’t ring.
What’s the trend, what’s new? What’s a label scout to do? Office life, Marty 11:32.
The label pres. calls and yells, “Sign more emo!”
How about screamo? “If it sells, sign Nemo,”
“We’re down 2%, and BMG knows,
My Daughter likes Dashboard, so get me one of those!”
He checks AP.net, the Scout and more,
yelling band names to his assistant through the door.
The kids will like this, who cares if it’s great?
So he signs a band called Hearts that Hate.

“Marty… we’ve got a hit.”

Cry tonight. My hands around your hands.
I won’t let you,
Die tonight.
My heart’s in your hands.
I won’t let you…

Hearts that Hate, Marty goes to their show, up in the club and here we go.
Marty sees a girl in a Simple Plan shirt with a Senses Fail boy, ha that’ll never work.
He finds his label friends in the corner they huddle,
An emo cattle auction, they penetrate the bubble.
They talk about Victory and signing TBS,
Dissing the same bands they just tried to impress.
So the lights go down, the crowd starts to scream,
Hearts that Hate have hit the scene.
Blake on vocals, and lead guitar,
He does a backflip, “Look how different we are!”
They show up at the studio to record it,
A TRL Billboard Modern Rock hit.
They auto-tune Blake, but he can’t tell.
He says, “I’ve got perfect pitch, damn I sing well.”
ProTools, Logic, cut, copy, paste, quantized solos and quantized bass.
Signed, sealed, delivered and sent, across the U.S. and the single went…

Cry tonight. My hands around your hands.
I won’t let you,
Die tonight.
My heart’s in your hands.
I won’t let you DIE

Momentum builds, but it all caves in.
Industrial comes back, the pres needs a NIN.
Marty finds a new band called “Fetal Coil”
And Hearts that Hate try to keep their fans loyal.
They re-work their sound for album number two,
As “Machines of Hate,” but their career is through.
They break up and work pushing mops and brooms,
Blake gives guitar lessons in his living room.
Blake gives guitar lessons in his living room,
Blake gives guitar lessons in his living room.

“Can you teach me track five Mr. Blake?”
“Hey, I wrote that song and it goes like this!”

Cry tonight. My hands around your hands.
I won’t let you,
Die tonight.
My Hearts In Your Hands.
I won’t Let you DIE
Cry Tonight (Die)
My Hands Around Your Hands.
I Won’t Let You
Die Tonight. (Die)
My Hearts In Your Hands.
I won’t let you… DIE

Not Like The Movies


 

 

Not Like The Movies – Katy Perry

He put it on me, I put it on,
Like there was nothing wrong.
It didn’t fit,
It wasn’t right.
Wasn’t just the size.
They say you know,
When you know.
I don’t know.

I didn’t feel
The fairytale feeling, no.
Am I a stupid girl
For even dreaming that I could.

If it’s not like the movies,
That’s how it should be, yeah.
When he’s the one,
I’ll come undone,
And my world will stop spinning
And that’s just the beginning, yeah.

Snow white said when I was young,
“One day my prince will come.”
So I wait for that date.
They say its hard to meet your match,
Find my better half.
So we make perfect shapes.
If stars don’t align,
If it doesn’t stop time,
If you cant see the sign,
Wait for it.
One hundred percent,
With every penny spent.
He’ll be the one that,
Finishes your sentences.

If it’s not like the movies,
That’s how it should be.
When he’s the one,
He’ll come undone,
And my world will stop spinning,
And that’s just the beginning.

‘Cause I know you’re out there,
And you’re, you’re looking for me.
It’s a crazy idea that you were made,
Perfectly for me you’ll see.

Just like the movies.
That’s how it will be.
Cinematic and dramatic with the perfect ending.
It’s not like the movies,
But that’s how it will be.
When he’s the one,
You’ll come undone,
And your world will stop spinning,
And it’s just the beginning.

Since You’re Gone


Since You’re Gone – The Pretty Reckless

Since you hide, since you steal
Since you hate everything I feel
Since you cheat, since you lie
Since you don’t wanna try things I wanna try

Since you been gone
My life has moved along quite nicely actually

Got a lot more friends and I don’t have to pretend
Since you’re gone, since you’re gone

Since you’re not what I want
You can take everything I’ve got
Take the seat, take the drive
If I say I love you, I am a liar

Since you been gone
My life has moved along quite nicely actually

Well, meet my lover Gin and I don’t have to pretend
Since you’re gone, since you’re gone

I’ve been looking for a new direction, anyway
I’ve been thinkin’ bout my own protection, instead

Now that you’re gone my life has moved along
Now that you’re gone my life has moved along
Now that you’re gone my life has moved along
Now that you’re gone

Since you hide, since you steal
Since you hate everything I feel
Since you cheat, since you lie
Since you don’t wanna try things I wanna try

Since you been gone
My life has moved along quite nicely actually

Quite nicely actually, quite nicely actually
Quite nicely actually, quite nicely actually
Quite nicely actually, quite nicely, thanks for asking

Faith


 

Faith – Limp Bizkit

well I guess it would be nice
if I could touch your body
I know not everybody
has gotta body like me

but I gotta think twice
before I give my heart away
and I know all the games you play
’cause I play them too

oh, but I need some time off
from that emotion
time to pick my heart up off the floor
when that love comes down
without devotion
well it takes a strong man baby
but I’m showin’ you that door

well I gotta have faith
gotta have faith -repeat x3

baby, I know you’re askin’ me to stay
say please, please, please don’t go away
cuz you’re givin’ me the blues
baby, you might mean all the words you say
can’t help but think of yesterday
and another who tied me down to lover-boy blues

before this river becomes an ocean
before you pick my heart up off the floor
when our love comes down
without devotion
well it takes a stong man baby
but I’m, uh, showing you that door

well, I gotta have faith
gotta have faith -repeat x3

get the fuck up!

I gotta have faith -repeat x4
faith -repeat x2

Made Of Scars


 

Made Of Scars- Stone Sour

 

This one came from looking
This one opened twice
These two seem as smooth as silk, flush against my eyes
This one needed stitches and
This one came from rings
This one isn’t even there, but I feel it more because you don’t care

Yeah, Cut right into me
Yeah, Cause I am Made Of Scars
Yes I am made of scars

This one had it coming
This one found a vein
This one was an accident, but never gave me pain
This one was my fathers and
This one you can’t see
This one had me scared to death,
But I guess I should be glad I’m not dead!!

Yeah, Cut right into me
Yeah, I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

God, Don’t you believe the hype?

And I will find a way
Everything you are I will betray
Oh, I swear that I will find a way
Everything you are’s inside me

This one was the first one
This one had a vice
This one here I like to rub on dark and stormy nights
This one was the last one,
I don’t remember how
But I remember blood and rain
AND I NEVER SAW IT COMING AGAIN

Yeah, Cut right into me
Yeah, Cause I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

That’s what I’m made of!!!

Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner


Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner – Fall Out Boy


Drink down that Gin and Kerosene,
And come spit on bridges with me,
Just to keep us warm.
Light a match to leave me be.
Light a match to leave me be.

 

I keep my jealousy close,
‘Cause it’s all mine.
And if you say this makes you happy,
Then I’m not the only one lying.

[Chorus: x2]
Keep quiet,
Nothing comes as easy as you.
Can I lay in your bed all day?
I’ll be your best kept secret
And your biggest mistake.
The hand behind this pen relives a failure every day.

I keep my jealousy close,
‘Cause it’s all mine.
And if you say this makes you happy,
Then I’m not the only one lying.

Drink down that Gin and Kerosene,
And come spit on bridges with me,
Just to keep us warm (Just to keep us warm)
Light a match to leave me be.
Light a match to leave me…

[Chorus x2]

So wear me like a locket around your throat.
I’ll weigh you down.
I’ll watch you choke.
You look so good in blue.
You look so good in blue.
[x3]
[During 3rd repeat:]
(Keep quiet,
Nothing comes as easy as you.
Can I lay in your bed all day?)

 

[Chorus x3]

Thousand Miles


 

Thousand Miles – Vanessa Carlton

 

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And I’m home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder….

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It’s always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

‘Cause everything’s so wrong
And I don’t belong
Living in your
Precious memories

‘Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder….

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And I, I
Don’t want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don’t want to let this go
I, I
Don’t….

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces passed
And I’m home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder….

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you…

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
‘Cause you know I’d walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight
