A CALCULATED BIRTH, a jim kirk mix

01. holy branches - radical face

when you were young / you'd bite your tongue

there's a hole, in your chest
from the time that you were born, and it don't get filled
cause you've always known
you're nothing they want

and I don't sleep much / days don't feel different from the nights with no goals in mind

but for now, we're adrift / on the winds of discontent / trying to carve our place
all in hopes we'll be something they want
but I ain't holding my breath

I'll bide my time / until I'm something they want
02. the vowels, pt. 2 - why

I'm not a ladies' man; I'm a landmine
filming my own fake death

under an '88 Cavalier I go
nothing but the rear bumper's blown

but I was born for this flight

faking suicide for applause in the food courts of malls
did anyone hear me cry there? / through a toilet stall divider
I swear, I care

am I an example of a calculated birth?
to a star chart for clowns, I'm not
03. of space and time - city and colour

on this desolate road / well I tend to forget

I'm roaming through the hills, all alone
I'm trying to find, my direction home
a question of space, a matter of time
I'll follow the stars until the first light

I don't know what drugs to take
to successfully alter the state
that my mind has been in as of late

there's an elephant in the back of the room / and it's standing in plain view
everyone can see / that it looks just like me

I will not call this road home
though it is all I know

04. you are a runner and I am my father's son - wolf parade

I've got a number on me
won't make it through the high noon sun

but I am my father's son
and I am my father's son

his bed is made / but I was a hero
early in the morning
I ain't no hero / in the night
05. (I can't get no) satisfaction - cat power

and I'm driving in my car
and a man comes on the radio
he's tellin' me more and more / 'bout some useless information
tryin' to mess my imagination

when I'm watching my t.v.
and a man comes on to tell me
how white my shirts can be
but he can't be a man cause he doesn't smoke / the same cigarettes as me

can't you see?
I'm on a loosing streak

06. fortyfive - bootstraps

shook as the wheel spun
lost from everyone
they don't know where we come from

with grooves that skip over
every word you've heard before

cause our hot blood
bound by wonderlust
still don't know where we come from

07. high and dry - radiohead

two jumps in a week
I bet you think you're pretty clever, don't you boy?
flying on your motorcyle
watching all the ground beneath you drop

you'd kill yourself for recognition,
kill yourself to never ever stop

they're the ones who'll hate you when you think you've got the world all sussed out

08. modern man - arcade fire

like a record that's skipping
I'm a modern man
and the clock keeps ticking
I'm a modern man

in my dream I was almost there
but they pulled me aside said 'you're going nowhere'

if it's alright
then how come you can't sleep at night?

09. myth - beach house

drifting in and out / see the road you're on
say just what you mean

what comes after this?
momentary bliss

found yourself in a new direction
arrows falling from the sun
canyon calling would they come to greet you
let you know you're not the only one

can't keep hanging on / to what is dead and gone
or let the ashes fly

10. bad habit - foals

and I know that I've changed
I'm chained again

cause I'm a bad habit
one you cannot shake
and I hope that I change
don't follow me

small voice of calm / puts the blame into my arms

cause I've made my mistakes
but I feel something's changed
and I know what's at stake
wash the stains away
11. racing like a pro - the national

fifteen blue shirts and womanly hands
you're shooting up the ladder

your mind is racing like a pro now
oh my god, it doesn't mean a lot to you
one time you were a glowing young ruffian
oh my god, it was a million years ago

you're dumbstruck baby, now you know
12. whirlpool - sea wolf

what is this pulling / tugging at my
limbs so heavy, dragging me down again
I swear this isn't me

I just want to / feel the sunlight
warm soothing on my naked skin
so I'm hoping
this cold blue water / scrubs me clean

oh my one, swear I'm trying
what good would it do lying?
13. on my way home - band of horses

by chance I thought of
all my favorite songs, where I'd go wrong
pissing my life away in the form of a song

every step, a victory it was
I was cheating death / just in time I woke

I came in this way
and here now I'll stay
