You Were Cool


i hope you love your life like i love mine

i hope the painful memories only flex their power over you

a little of the time

we held on to hope of better days coming

& when we did we were right

i hope the people who did you wrong

have trouble sleeping at night

you were cool // the mountain goats

I’ll pretty much always reblog this, just in case there’s someone who needs to hear it.

Cry for Judas


"This here album track, anyway, is called “Cry for Judas,” it is about survival but that’s kind of an oversimplification, it’s also about building a vehicle from the defeated pieces of the thing you survived and piloting that vehicle through the cosmos, it’s kind of complicated but people who know what I’m talking about will kind of intuitively get the idea and the rest of you will I hope be able to get a sense of it through the song."

Transcendental Youth

[A lot of] Transcendental Youth is about mental illness, severe sort of severe depression when you don’t leave your house. And I think pretty often when you enter into that sort of mindset, you know when you really are so genuinely depressed that you sort of can’t see past your door, I think it’s pretty common to go: “God, I hate this place, I hate this place!” I don’t think a lot of people who are very depressed have a lot of love for their surroundings and, for me anyway, in my most depressed times I always just hate the town I’m in. I blame it. I mean when I lived in Portland for nine months, I was profoundly depressed and boy did I hate Portland. I just blamed Portland for everything. The weather, you know. So that’s what that’s about. That feeling of when you are struggling. How you tend to hate where you are.

Aesop Rock
Coffee (feat. John Darnielle)

I crawled down to the basement
When the weather got cold
Like a lost lamb returning to the fold
And when the outside world recedes from view
It’s just a year’s supply of make-up
And memories of you
1967 Colt 45holding back the vampires
Keeping me alive
There’s an envelope with some cash in it
Out by the front door
This is what they make you take the medication for

MUSIC ASKS these are actually pretty f***ing hard but why not.

A song you like with a color in the title
A song you like with a number in the title
A song that reminds you of summertime
A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about
A song that needs to be played LOUD
A song that makes you want to dance
A song to drive to
A song about drugs or alcohol
A song that makes you happy
A song that makes you sad
A song that you never get tired of
A song from your preteen years
One of your favorite 80’s songs
A song that you would love played at your wedding
A song that is a cover by another artist
One of your favorite classical songs
A song that would sing a duet with on karaoke
A song from the year that you were born
A song that makes you think about life
A song that has many meanings to you
A favorite song with a person’s name in the title
A song that moves you forward
A song that you think everybody should listen to
A song by a band you wish were still together
A song by an artist no longer living
A song that makes you want to fall in love
A song that breaks your heart
A song by an artist with a voice that you love
A song that you remember from your childhood
A song that reminds you of yourself
