from 'Sally' by Johnny Flynn
Oh kiss me here and kick me there, and lovers won't be friends.
Sally was a daisy chain, and Sally was a rock.
Sally let her hair hang low and Sally wore a frock
Kiss me here and kick me there, and lovers might be friends.

'I've cut myself off.
I can feel the place
where I used to be attached.
It's raw, as when you grate
your finger. It's a shredded mess
of images. It hurts.'

From 'Fix You' by Coldplay
But if you never try then you'll never know just what you're worth

From the film "Snow Cake"
I want you to put your arms around me and squeeze me very tightly but don't touch me with your hands.
You don't know how I'm feeling because you're not me.

Is it better
to waste your day watching the scenery change at a comatose rate, than to put yourself in it and turn into one of those cigarette ads that you hate?
But still, no one can stare at the wall as good as you, my babydoll
And just 'cause they call themselves experts
sweet fuck all
They've got the permanent press
Homes with a stable address
And they've got excitement
And life by the fistful
But you've got the needle
I guess that's the point of it all
From 'The Point of it All' by Amanda Palmer

From Last Year's Leaves by Blanche
Last year's leaves
were just bad dreams.
Open up your eyes, there's no surprise:
just a barren tree
Low and behold
all those lies were true;
hear them ring, everything
people said about you
I thought I heard the falling rain
It always seems to numb the pain
Was that sound the poplar leaves,
screaming in the evening breeze?
Last year's leaves,
A trusted friend, till the end,
or so it seemed
You gave your word,
looked me in the eye.
Tell me how on earth, are you worth
the tears I've cried?
I thought I heard the falling rain;
it always seems to numb the pain.
Or was that sound the poplar leaves
screaming in the evening breeze
like last year's leaves?
You're last years leaves...

Back at home the broadcast warning bounces off an empty table
Sad but true, the two of us might really make it through. But what's the use, dear Jenny, anyway? The world is happy, world is happy, world is happy, without you.

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood
So come out of your cave walking on your hands
And see the world hanging upside down
You can understand dependence
When you know the maker's land
So make your siren's call
And sing all you want
I will not hear what you have to say
Cause I need freedom now
And I need to know how
To live my life as it's meant to be
And I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck
And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again
The title is something that was said by Marie Curie, the text is 'The Cave' by Mumford and Sons
So damn easy to cave in...
