because you're a catalyst



"You Won't See Me" by Daughter Darling

All the worlds that I turn towards
Won't look me in the eye
Somethings hiding from the truth that ever was
And slipping into a lie...

Know I will put you in your place
This lie I refuse to live

"Sleepless" by Kate Havnevik

Catch me as I fly
Passing by at night
Watch me as I go, outside
It's another world
When the moon is high
And the walking keeps,
Me breathing

Sleepless,
I shouldn't be here
Sleepless,
Twenty-four hours
Sleepless,
I have I have to keep walking
Sleepless,
Twenty-four hours of searching
Searching for my life

---

"Kemikal Girl" by Flunk

Choosing, losing
Finding my way throught the rain
Losing, choosing
All of my thoughts go insane

And I can´t go
Where I want to

Who would dare to bring me love
Who would dare to bring me love
Who would dare to bring me love
Who would dare to bring me love

---

"Morphing" by Elsiane

Look in the interior it's all full of life
look in this shadow but always leave the light on
mysterious all full of life
loom into shadows but always kept the light on

Discover the way only in the inferior
Constantly followed holding into light
Mysterious all full of love

I'll discover it over I'll be hovered and mostly gone
I'd like to restart it all over with mountains full of gold

---

"Tubefed" by Halou

We appeal to your basic nature
Your basic nature, honey
Chew up the harder facts for you
To make them easy to consume

With your attention-span destroyed
Segments of six-second factoids

Sanitize the truth for you
You won't have to think to hard
Sanitize the truth for you
You won't have to dig too far

---

"Tahiti" by Bat For Lashes

Tahiti we don't got no name
Tahiti we don't got no home
Tahiti we don't got no money
Tahiti we don't got no
Honey

But we do the dishes, we make the bread
We are powdered ashes in the light of the beauty

Wear those dark glasses to help us see
Hot tears rolling down and our arms are knitted

Creatures of the night on a highway of hope
And the beauty that we'll leave each other
Tomorrow

---

"Blue Bird Party" by Neulander

good evening and welcome to the underground place
it's the last party for the human race
my idea is to play along
slow march very sad songs

your complaint is that it's lost too
before you know it, you're in another room
a guest of a guest has put you on the list
just like that, you don't exist
it's a taxing thought
when you consider being not

---

"Life on Lies" by Deepika

you must believe in yourself,
heading for the stars
you won't be no one else,
just be who you are

make your mind up

they expect you to race
as you stay in your place
play the game by their rules
live your life as they choose

---

"Truth Song" by Manna

I need to get it again, and again, and again
Bang, bang, you'll be pounding in my head
It keeps me moving, it keeps me alive
You gave me the truth, I couldn't deny

Seven hundred stories, seven hundred more
I found you're the one that I adore
You gotta give me your joy and give me your pain
I'll take the hit and feel no shame

All this time, and now I know why
All this time, and now I know why

I made a few mistakes but now it's all good
I'm paying my dues, like you knew that I would

Seven hundred stories, seven hundred more
I found you're the one that I adore

"Are You Satisfied?" by Marina and the Diamonds

People like to tell you what you're gonna be
It's not my problem if you don't see what I see
And I do not give a damn if you don't believe

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to lie to make my way in life

High achiever don't you see
Baby, nothing comes for free
They say I'm a control freak
Driven by a greed to succeed
Nobody can stop me

Cause it's my problem
If I wanna pack up and run away
It's my business if I feel the need to
Smoke and drink and sway
It's my problem, it's my problem
If I feel the need to hide
It's my problem if I have no friends
And feel I want to die

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to lie to make my way in life

Are you satisfied with an easy ride
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?

---

"5678!" by Butterfly Boucher

You wanna know how love is made
You wanna see the world change
Well gather all your people around
And listen for the countdown

5, 6, 7, 8
It's a science
And the beat is our alliance
Once you have it
There is method to the madness

The sky is falling yes it's true
Been falling since I fell for you
The feeling of déjà vu
No one does it like you do

5, 6, 7, 8
Oh it's a chemical attraction
Can you feel it?
It's the sound of satisfaction

---

"MLK/MJ MASHUP (w/pied piper and BK2)" by Beats Antique

I'm not fearing any man!

I see the promised land
I may not get there with you
but I want you to know tonight
that we as a people will get to the promised land!

better do what you can

---

"The Youth" by MGMT

This is a call of arms to live and love and sleep together
We could flood the streets with love or light or heat whatever

The youth is starting to change
Are you starting to change?
Are you?
Together

And in spite of the weather
We could learn to make it together

"Child You're The Revolution" by Angie Aparo

When you’re young
they take your hand
Say you’re from the greatest land
Right or wrong
They teach you the song
Of your people

And in your dreams
they shape your mind
until it seems
you’re one of their kind
and on your tongue
they write the song
of your people

Mother tell me
is there love on my tongue
mother tell me
cause I’m the revolution
Mother tell me
Are there wars to be won
can you tell me
am I a child of the son
The only one who rules the world
is every little boy or girl
child you’re the revolution

I wanna bury your flags
and all your religions
it’s a fucking drag
To hear all your bitchin’
When I was young
Standin' in the kitchen
With all the hatred on the television

child you’re the revolution
child, you’re the revolution
child, you’re the revolution
child, you’re the revolution

---

"Hidden Ones" by Missy Higgins

She's holding a torch in her hand
Pointing towards Heaven
And on the streets below her, people living out of trashcans
Are trying to believe she's got a plan

We dug a hole under the sea
But nobody knows how to stop the bleed
There's 999 channels on my TV
And I still have no idea what to believe

Over the water to the east
Two million in a square refuse to sleep
Till every pleading voice is heard
And all the world has seen
Revolution: fallen king down to his knees

Cause they made a choice
Not to follow the leader
But use one voice
Shows ordinary people
Can make a really loud noise
When the hidden ones speak up

There is a choice
You can follow the leader
Or use your voice
Cause this will just keep up
Until we make a loud noise
And the hidden ones speak up

"bethelightbethelightbethelight" by Rae Spoon

I’m not as fucked up as my life,
But I’m lost without a fight.
How am I going to be the light, be the light, be the light?
Be the light, be the light, be the light?

I could guard you and you could guard me,
But the danger’s within us, so how safe could that be?
We’ll never be the light, be the light, be the light.
Be the light, be the light, be the light.

I’ll only follow you for one night.
If you’re going to burn all the bridges
Can I be the light, be the light, be the light?
Be the light, be the light, be the light?

"Pray for Rain" by Massive Attack

And their eyes change
As they learn to see through flames
And their necks crane
As they turn to pray for rain

Drops on rocks fall fast and fleeting
Hearts and wings commence to beating
What’s unseen with all believing
Vision walls fall all receding

Rhythm laws unleash the meaning
Usher us into the dreaming

Vision walls fall all revealing
Vision walls fall all revealing
Vision walls fall all revealing
Vision walls fall all revealing

In deepest hollows of our minds
A system failure left behind
Dull residue of what once was
A shattered cloud of swirling doves

---

"Break The Same" by Mute Math

The crowds roll by and I'm falling in
Everyone's invincible, but it's just pretend
And we all freaked out, what a shame
When only tears know how to remind us we all break the same

Everything we've built could be our demise
It's the sticks and stones that wear us down that often save our lives

The different stars tonight will somehow fade the same
And all the tears we cry tell us we're made the same
And when we fall aside, let's hope we fall in place
We built our different lives, but they all break the same

Different worlds and different hearts
Different souls and different parts
We all, we all break the same

----

"Live Out Loud" by The Benjamin Gate

Live out, live out, live out loud
Live out, live out, live out loud
Live out, live out, live out loud

Your eyes pierce through this life of mine
And bring me to give all that I can find
Revelation my heart's desire
Pull me up and out of the mire

---

"Stripped" by Shiny Toy Guns

Come with me
Into the trees
We'll lay on the grass
And let the hours pass

Take my hand
Come back to the land
Lets get away
Just for one day

Let me see you
Stripped down to the bone

Metropolis
Has nothing on this
You're breathing in fumes
I taste when we kiss

Let me hear you
Make decisions
Without your television
Let me hear you speaking
Just for me

---

"Feral" by Noe Venable

I wanna run 'til my feet start bleeding
I wanna make it all the way to the ocean
I wanna live for life and no other
cause I don't ever wanna be like my mother
I wanna learn to walk on the water
cause I don't wanna be like my father
I have a sister and I got a little brother
and I don't ever wanna be like them either

uh uH Uh
feral

I had a place I'd go in the garden
where I'd pretend that nobody made me,
watch the sun going down on the day like a
gentleman going down on a lady
and I had friends who would come and meet me
and we would stay 'til early evening
singing, "we're not gonna die away so easy
we're not gonna die away die away, no"

uH uh UH!

I'm not scared to walk like a lady
and I'm not scared to cry like a baby
I'm not scared I'm not scared I'm not
I'm not scared I'm not

"I Need I Want I Will" by Auf Der Maur

In the last decade of the 20th century
An event occurred in the lives and minds
Of a random few
It was an event of magical momentum

A building was erected to house a dream of many
3 dimensional sound
For these people who made sound their lives,
This was a day of life changing quality
It was loud!!

I need I want I will
Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on

Into the triangular parlor they went,
The music entered them,
Through their skin,
Into their blood,
Following their heart beat
The music became them
And they became it
Off they went following a dirt desert path,
A brand new beginning for lovers of sound,
They had to pass it on
I need I want I will

I need I want I will
Pass it on,
Pass it on,
Pass it on

The journey was not easy for them
On their path there was an obstactle
Down came the rain
And the H.R. Giger crane,

It all tried to stop them
However they found the will
To find their way back home
To pass it on

I had a dream, I pass it on
I had a dream, I pass it on

because I'm in love with you


"Everything's Okay" by Lenka

Woke my weary head
Crawled out of my bed
And I said, "Oh, how do I go on?"
Nothing's going right, shadow's took the light
And I said, "Oh, how do I go on?"

Sometimes I need a little sunshine
And sometimes I need you

Keep giving me hope for a better day
Keep giving me love to find a way
Through this messy life I made for myself
Heaven knows I need a little

Hope for a better day
A little love to find a way
Through this heaviness I feel
I just need someone to say, everything's okay

---

"Welcome" by Heather Nova

I see you standing in the doorway
A shadow in the sun
I'm reaching out to touch you
Is it better when you know
That you're not the only one
That I can hear you?

And there's so much I can do for you
Given time I know that I can prove
Now my world is opened up to you
Let it fly

Welcome to my life
Welcome to my world
Come inside

I see you picking up the pieces
The pieces of a dream
You tried to build around you
I know you're looking for a reason
A reason to believe
Now I've found you

---

"I Really Hope"

I've been down this road before
Now I'm coming back for more
This is like a de-ja-vu
I was born to be with you

I really hope you'll always be
So in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay
So attached this way

So beware of the pitfall
We don't have to change at all
And our life will not burn out
It's what freedom all about

I really hope that you'll always be here
I really hope that you'll always be near

I'll always be here

---

"There's No Secrets This Year" by Silversun Pickups

Who would know
All the reasons you're alone
If the seeds were planted firm my dear
Would the banshees tear it all apart

I'll tell you a secret
Let's make this perfectly clear
There's no secrets this year

So your heart's blown open
Pulsating in your ear
The beat is insincere

I'm still here

---

"Cosmos" by t.A.T.u.

Games we don't want to play
Same winner everyday
Kill for the second best
Feel no more, feel no less
We have our minutes cut
We lose our feelings but
That's what the movies show
This is where stories go

Stars we don't want to reach
Scars we don't want to stitch
Go where we haven't been
Fly away, time machine
Clouds - we will chase them out
Crowds, we will face them down

This is our secret place
Outer space, outer space
Our home forever is outer space
Black stars and endless seas, outer space
New hope, new destinies; outer space
Forever we'll be in
Outer space, outer space

And this place we're meant to be
Stars are dancing and the time is fading

In the cosmos, we are free

---

"Parisian Dream" by Laura Veirs

You open me up
Was folding into myself
A deck of cards
Face down empty on the shelf

Your song with
Emphasis on one and two
Then I couldn't keep time
You took me into a dream
Exploding soundtrack
That I treasure as mine

You cast free the lines
Let's float here
Together clearly we better
Slip out to the brine!

---

"Near You Always" by Jewel

... look at me like that
It just makes me want to make you near me always
... kiss me so sweet
it makes me crave a thousand kisses to follow
... come so close
it just makes me want to make you near me always

... try to understand me
your hands already know too much anyway
It just makes me want to make you near me always
And when you look in my eyes
please know my heart is in your hands
It's nothing that I understand, but when in your arms
you have complete power over me
So be gentle if you please, 'cause
Your hands are in my hair, but my heart is in your teeth
And it makes me want to make you near me always

I want to be near you always

---

"Where I Belong" by Sia

just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There's a place here for you with me

Shine
You're fine
See I will always have a smile for you my love
And still
We will
Be ok and along the way we'll learn a thing or two

just be glad I am strong
I know where I belong
And soon you will see we are blessed and complete
There's a place here for you with me

---

"Undenied" by Portishead

Your softly spoken words
Release my whole desire
Undenied
Totally

And so bare is my heart, I can't hide
And so where does my heart, belong

Beneath your tender touch
My senses can't divide
Ohh so strong
My desire

For so bare is my heart, I can't hide
And so where does my heart, belong

Now that I've found you
And seen behind those eyes
How can I
Carry on

For so bare is my heart, I can't hide
And so where does my heart, belong

---

"The Devil" by PJ Harvey

I go out
To the old milestone
Insanely expecting
You to come there
Knowing that I wait for you there
That I wait for you there

Come!
Come!
Come here at once
Come!
Come
On a night with no moon

Because all of my being is now in pining
All of my being is now in pining

---

"The Way to There" by Au Revoir Simone

If you feel
Compelled towards me
Then it's just gravity
The seconds
Stretch to days
Because time was
Made that way

Dark nights are moving fast
Becoming moments past
While the air is thin
Daring, while you still can

From every point in space
We've come to this place
So how can it not be fate
When we were made this way

---

"I Know Places" by Lykke Li

I know places we can go, babe
I know places we can go, babe
The high won't fade here, babe
No, the high won't hurt here, babe

Don't ask me when but ask me why
Don't ask me how but ask me where
There is a road, there is a way
There is a place, there is a place

I know places we can go, babe
Coming home, come unfold, babe

I know places we can go, babe
Coming home, come unfold, babe

---

"We Exchanged Words" by Azure Ray

We exchanged words
Through smoke-filled mouths
And then we found our bodies
Speaking loud
And our hearts pressed against the flesh
Trading stories
Of love's pain
Doubt
And rivaling insecurities
When did we learn to speak without words?
And in tongues?
