YOUR BLOOD'S AS GOOD AN INK AS ANY, a nathan drake mix

01. first - cold war kids

cheated and lied, broken so bad
you play the game, though it's unfair
they're all the same / who can compare?

night after night, bar after club
dropping like flies / who woke you up

it's not your house / where'd you go wrong?
first you get hurt, then you feel sorry

flying like a cannoball / falling to the earth
heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt

there comes a time in a short life
turn it around, get a rewrite
ticking of clocks, gravity's pull

you wanna light it now, the candle from both ends

02. the riot's gone - santigold

I've been looking for a fight
all the trouble that I know

I've been haunted all my life
on the brink of something close
know I'm grappling with a ghost

oh take me home
let me go all day
til I know that the riot's gone, the riot's gone away

03. dear sons and daughters of hungry ghosts - wolf parade

I got a hand
so I got a fist
so I got a plan

now we'll say it's in God's hands
but God dosn't always have the best goddamn plans, does he?

pulls out two guns and shoots at the pretty, pretty view
gotta keep thinking, things, hunters and kings

people I can trick them into thinking anything
oh rust it just right in the light, it's gold

sons and daughters of hungry ghosts

04. like real people do - hozier

I had a thought dear, howevery scary
about that night / the bugs and the dirt
why were you digging?
what did you bury?
before those hands pulled me from the earth

I will not ask where you came from
I will not ask and neither should you

I know that look, dear / eyes always seeking
so I will not ask you / why you were creeping
in some sad way I already know

we should just kiss like real people do

05. stay gold - first aid kit

the sun shone high those few summer days
it shone like gold

no gold can stay

what if the road won't take me there?
what if to love and be loved's not enough?
what if I fall and can't bear to get up?

we're on our way through rugged land
top of that mountain we wanted to stand
with hearts of gold

all of my dreams, they fall and form a bridge
of memories where I can get back to you

06. sleeping ute - grizzly bear

dreamed the long day just wandering free
though I'm far gone / you sleep nearer to me

so I'll walk out these wandering dreams
up the north road dressed gold and green
if I could lie still as that great hill

if I could find peace

and those figures through the leaves
and that light through the smoke
and those countless empty days made me dizzy when I woke

and I live to see your face
but I know no other way than straight on out the door
and I can't help myself

07. giving up the gun - vampire weekend

your sword's grown old and rusty
burnt beneath the rising sun
and though it's been a long time
you're right back where you started from

when I was 17, I had wrists like steel
and I felt complete

but if the chance remained, to see those better days
I'd cut the cannons down
my ears are blown to bits / from all the rifle hits
but still I crave that sound

I see you shine in your way
go on, go on, go on

08. sea of love - the national

how am I supposed to know?
when you go under the waste
what am I supposed to say?

if I stay here, trouble will find me
if I stay here, I'll never leave

sorry I hurt you / but they say, love is a virture don't they?

I see people on the floor / they're slidin' to the sea
can't stay here anymore / we're turnin' into theives

I see you rushing now / tell me how to reach you

09. speaking in tongues - arcade fire
[nate & sam]

hypocrite reader,
my double, my brother

your daddy really took it out of you

sneaking out the windows now
you've got the spirit now

where did we lose our way?
it's like we're speaking in tongues

come out of your head / and into my world now

10. take me to the riot - stars

grey skies and / light fading
headlamps making patterns on the wall
they hold tight their coin and pray no one has to see the fall
come closer, you'll see me / the face that is used to telling lies

you sprung me / I'm grateful
I love when you tell me not to speak
I owe you, but I know you
you'll have me back but it's gonna take a week

what now kid?
which way love?

take me, take me to the riot
and let me stay...

11. mountain at my gates - foals

I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day

I see a fire out by the lake
I see a darkness in my fate
I'll drive my car without the breaks

through lanes and stone rows / black granite, wind blows
fire lake and far flame / go now but come again
will I run or stand my ground?

gimmie my lungs
gimmie my fate

12. second chances - gregoy alan isakov

all of my heroes sit up straight
they stare at the ground / they radiate

oh my heart was all black
but I saw something shine
thought that part was yours, but it might just be mine
I could share it with you / if you gave me the time

I'm all bloody knuckles / longing for home
if it weren't for second chances, we'd all be alone

13. the crooked kind - radical face

so collect your scars and wear 'em well
your blood's as good an ink as any
go scratch your name into the clouds / and pull 'em all down

and I sit beside my brother and I feel him shake / and I'm laughing with him

but I smell their blood
my fingers trace their faces in the wood
I hear their voices somewhere in my bones

shadows dance around the room
I know their names
I carry their blood too

they sing forgotten songs
but I know the words
they've been with me since I was born

13. province - tv on the radio

suddenly, all your history's ablaze
try to breathe / as the world disintegrates
just like autumn leaves / we're in for change
holding tenderly to what remains

all your memories are as precious as gold
have you running through all your red-cheeked days
shaking loose these souls from their sacred hiding space

hold your heart courageously
as we walk into this dark place
stand steadfast erect and see
that love is the province of the brave
