The Calculation - Regina Spektor

so we made our own computer out of macaroni pieces
and it did our thinking while we lived our lives
it counted up our feelings and divided them up even
and it called our calculation perfect love
didn't even know that love was bigger
didn't even know that love was so, so hey hey
hey hey this fire it's burning burning us up

I Still Love You, Judas - Firewater

polish your pistol, shooting the breeze
flash me your trademark smile
when you live by the ruler you die inch by inch every day is a mile
ask me no favors, i'll never say no

Left and Leaving - The Weakerthans

my city's still breathing but barely it's true
through buildings gone missing like teeth
the sidewalks are watching me think about you
sparkled with broken glass
i'm back with scars to show

In For The Kill - La Roux

what are feelings without emotions?
i'm going in for the kill
i'm doing it for a thrill
oh i'm hoping you'll understand
and not let go of my hand

No Light, No Light - Florence & The Machine

no light, no light in your bright blue eyes
i never knew daylight could be so violent
a revelation in the light of day
you can't choose what stays or what fades away
and i'd do anything to make you stay

Weights & Measures - Dry the River

i was prepared to love you and never expect anything of you
and there's no patron saint of silent restraint
baby there ain't no sword in our lake
just a funeral wake

Swim - Jack's Mannequin

memories like bullets they fired at me from a gun
a crack in the armor
i swim for brighter days despite the absence of sun
choking on saltwater i'm not giving in
i swim

Rootless - Marina & the Diamonds

running with my roots pulled up
caught me cold so they could cut
what there was left of love
i'm rootless

Red - Elbow

you burn too bright
you live too fast
this can't go on too long
you're a tragedy starting to happen

Speeding Cars - Imogen Heap

sleeping pills no sleeping dogs lie never far enough away
glistening in the cold sweat of guilt
i've watched your story slowly winding down for years
you can't go on like this

Australia - The Shins

you'd trade your life for any ordinary joe's
well do it now or grow old, your nightmares only need a year or two to grow old
been alone since you were twenty one
you haven't laughed since january

Bullets - Tunng

our blood and guts are out, we spread our bones across the table at night
we cut our fingers off to give ourselves those little extra insights
we're catching bullets in our teeth
and though they try hard not to say how it's done they always do
they spill the secret out six ways and beg for our forgiveness just before dawn

The Velocity of Saul At The Time of His Conversion - Okkervil River

and where i had friends i am left with loose ends
four hours of vision exchanged for four hours of fright
but enough of "the fight", enough "you and i"
enough of "prevail" or "walk in the light"
as the angels stand by i get high as a kite
i'm too tired to smile or know that i'm right
am i right?

Anywhere On This Road - Lhasa de Sala

you've traveled this far you just have to go on
don't even look back to see how far you've come
though your body is bending under the load
there is nowhere to stop anywhere on this road
