“Troubled Mind” by Dan Mangan

I can’t take the heat
Guess I got a troubled mind
History repeats
And they say I got a troubled mind
And it won’t let up,
It’s like a bad dream
They say I got a troubled mind
Shaking like a sad teen
Gotta say I got a troubled mind

What the hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Everywhere I look, it’s the same sound

Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me
Ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me
It gets ahead of me
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody

Riots in the street
Guess I got a troubled mind
And if history repeats
Well you know I got a troubled mind

And it won’t let up
And it won’t let up
And it won’t let up

What the hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Everywhere I look, it’s the same sound

Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me
Ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me
It gets ahead of me
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me
Ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me
It gets ahead of me

Are we a force of nature?
Or just a sore in the mouth?
Are we the beautiful future?
I can’t figure it out
Are we a force of nature?
Or just a sore in the mouth?
Are we the beautiful future?
I can’t figure it out

What the hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Are we a force of nature?
Or just a sore in the mouth?
Everywhere I look,
It’s the same sound
Are we the beautiful future?
I can’t figure it out

What the Hell is wrong with everybody right now?
Everywhere I look, it’s the same sound

Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me
Ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me
Gets ahead of me

Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me
Ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me
It gets ahead of me

Haunted by the melody
The melody
Haunted by the melody
The melody
Sometimes it gets ahead of me
Ahead of my mind
It gets ahead of me
It gets ahead of me

Are we the voice of reason?
Or just the faintest sound?
Are we the voice of reason?
I can’t figure it out

“Rime of the Ancient Mariner” by Iron Maiden

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerizes one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice
To a place where nobody’s been
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross
Hailed in God’s name, hoping good luck it brings

And the ship sails on, back to the North
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on

The mariner kills the bird of good omen
His shipmates cry against what he’s done
But when the fog clears, they justify him
And make themselves a part of the crime

Sailing on and on and north across the sea
Sailing on and on and north ’til all is calm

The albatross begins with its vengeance
A terrible curse a thirst has begun
His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner
About his neck, the dead bird is hung

And the curse goes on and on at sea
And the curse goes on and on for them and me

“Day after day, day after day
We stuck nor breath nor motion
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
Water, water everywhere and
All the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink.”

There calls the mariner
There comes a ship over the line
But how can she sail with no wind in her sails and no tide

See, onward she comes
Onward she nears out of the sun
See, she has no crew
She has no life, wait but here’s two

Death and she life in death
They throw their dice for the crew
She wins the mariner and he belongs to her now
Then, crew one by one
They drop down dead, two hundred men
She, she, life in death
She lets him live, her chosen one

“One after one by the star dogged moon
Too quick for groan or sigh
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
And cursed me with his eye
Four times fifty living men
(And I heard nor sigh nor groan)
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump
They dropped down one by one.”

The curse it lives on in their eyes
The mariner he wished he’d die
Along with the sea creatures
But they lived on, so did he

And by the light of the moon
He prays for their beauty not doom
With heart he blesses them
God’s creatures all of them too

Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the sea
Then down in falls comes the rain

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
See them stir and they start to rise
Bodies lifted by good spirits
None of them speak and they’re lifeless in their eyes

And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on

Now the curse is finally lifted
And the mariner sights his home
Spirits go from the long dead bodies
Form their own light and the mariner’s left alone

And then a boat came sailing towards him
It was a joy he could not believe
The pilot’s boat, his son and the hermit
Penance of life will fall onto him

And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea
And the hermit shrives the mariner of his sins

The mariner’s bound to tell of his story
To tell this tale wherever he goes
To teach God’s word by his own example
That we must love all things that God made

And the wedding guest’s a sad and wiser man
And the tale goes on and on and on

“Everybody Want to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears

Welcome to your life there’s no turning back
Even while we sleep we will find
You acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It’s my own design, it’s my own remorse
Help me to decide, help me make the most
Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There’s a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I’ll be right behind you
So glad we’ve almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can’t stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world
Say that you’ll never, never, never, need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

“The Lights Went Out in Georgia” by Vicki Lawrence

He was on his way home from Candletop
Been two weeks gone and he’d thought he’d stop at Webb’s
And have him a drink before he went home to her

Andy Wolloe said hello
And he said, “Hi, what’s doing, Wo?”
Said, “Sit down, I got some bad news, it’s gonna hurt.”

He said, “I’m your best friend and you know that’s right
But your young bride ain’t home tonight
Since you been gone, she’s been seeing that Amos boy, Seth.”

Well, he got mad and he saw red
And Andy said, “Boy, don’t you lose your head
Cause to tell you the truth, I’ve been with her myself.”

That’s the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Well, don’t trust your soul to no backwoods southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hands

Well, Andy got scared and left the bar
Walking on home, cause he didn’t live far
See, Andy didn’t have many friends
And he just lost him one

Brother thought his wife musta left town
So he went home and finally found
The only thing Papa had left him and that was a gun

Then he went off to Andy’s house
Slippin’ through the backwoods, quiet as a mouse
Came upon some tracks too small for Andy to make
He looked through the screen at the back porch door
And he saw Andy lying on the floor
In a puddle of blood and he started to shake

Well, the Georgia patrol was making their rounds
So he fired a shot just to flag them down
And a big-bellied sheriff grabbed his gun
And said “Why’d you do it?”

Well, the judge said guilty in a make-believe trial
Slapped the sheriff on the back with a smile
Said, “Supper’s waitin’ at home and I gotta get to it.”

That’s the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Well, don’t trust your soul to no backwoods southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hands

Well, they hung my brother before I could say
The tracks he saw while on his way
To Andy’s house and back that night were mine
And his cheating wife had never left town
And that’s one body that’ll never be found
See, little sister don’t miss when she aims her gun

That’s the night that the lights went out in Georgia, whoa-oh
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man, uh-huh
Well, don’t trust your soul to no backwoods, southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hands

Oh, that’s the night that the lights went out in Georgia

“Gone Away” by the Offspring

Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can’t deal it’s so unfair

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven’s so far away
And it feels
Yeah it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you’ve gone away

Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary’s
Can’t bring back what’s taken from me
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven’s so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you’ve gone away

Gone away
Gone away
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Ooh
Yeah ooh-ooh
Oh yeah

I’ll save your soul
Woah, yeah, yeah

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
Oh please let me trade
I would

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven is so far away
And it feels
Yeah, it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you’ve gone away

Gone away
Gone away
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Ooh
Yeah ooh-ooh
Oh yeah

Yeah ooh
Yeah ooh-ooh
Oh yeah
