Converge // Clean
(Depeche Mode cover)

I’ve broken my fall,
Put an end to it all,
I’ve changed my routine
Now I’m clean…

Sometimes.

Purity Ring // Obedear

I came down over the sleeping mountains
Where our white tones plunged
Into the weeping shelter

The Dead Weather // So Far From Your Weapon

There’s a bullet in my pocket burning a hole.
You’re so far from your weapon,
And you want to go home.

Bjork // Hunter

I’m going hunting,
I’m the hunter,
I’ll bring back the goods,
But I don’t know when.

Metric // Blindness

Send us a blindfold, send us a blade
Tell the survivors help is on the way
I was a blind fool, never complained
All the survivors singing in the rain
I was the one with the world at my feet
Got us a battle, leave it up to me.

pirates aren’t romantic {8tracks}
… but they are fascinating. here’s a collection of songs to tell the story of a sailor gone rogue, a world turned upside-down, and the sea that saves.
introduction to the sailor:

brown bird || ebb & flow || if i should die out here at sea / would anyone be mourning me?gaelic storm || the devil down below || i used to be a fisherman, on the icy crests we’d ride / like a banshee on the wind, we’d sail the ocean wide.

becoming the pirate:

brown bird || blood of angels || i tried to be good, i was a failure / so i took to taking all the good men down.alela diane || the pirate’s gospel || while some folks row way up to heaven / i’m gonna sing the pirate’s gospel.

embracing the pirate’s lifestyle:

blackbird raum || honey in the hair || i fill my life up with time, asleep in the vine, whiskey and wine / who makes the wind blow, i don’t care, my eyes roll back in my head.those poor bastards || hoist that skirt || that’s my hand upon your leg / like a fish dead upon the shore.dark dark dark || ferment in d minor || you’ve got a strong fermenting body / you’ve got a body made of lead / i want to hold you under water / and calculate your next breath.

the sea responds:

puscifer || man overboard || here come the gails, mind the sails, mind the sails.dead man’s bones || buried in water || we’re like the lambs to its slaughter / buried in water.

fear sets in: 

o’death || black dress || pray for me, pray for me, pray for me, just pray.

the daughters of the sea save:

emily portman || spine of a wave || ever since you crawled out / we’ve awaited your return.

the lesson learned, the pirate continues, a little wiser:

crooked fingers || let’s not pretend || so go out, repent / go be sorry now, for your sins / and let’s not pretend / let’s not pretend to be new men.thrice || kings upon the main || There’ll never be, there has never been / A ship or fleet secure against the storms.

HIM // Wicked Game

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you.

Poe // Control

This is beginning to feel good,
Watching you squirm in your shoes,
A small bead of sweat on your brow and a growl
In your belly you’re scared to let through.

You thought you could keep me from loving,
And you thought you could feed on my soul.
But while you were busy destroyin’ my life
What was half in me has become whole.

Zola Jesus // In Your Nature
(David Lynch remix)

Feel it forming
through the skin
swallow me whole
let it bury me in
and there I go

It’s coming down
like a sharp curve in the sky
and I don’t even know why

If it’s in your nature, you’ll never win
if it’s in your nature, you’ll never win

Kwabs // Last Stand

War’s over but I soldier on,
Still battling the ghost long-gone,
Still struggling to see the signs,
Too heavy for a heart like mine.
Save me, save me.

asked: I struggle with finding the right music to listen to when I write… Are there playlists that match certain moods and themes for writers?

Well, here is a set of playlists geared toward writers:

And…

There’s also us! We’re less playlist-based and more song-based, but we may still be of interest.  Our admin mixes are here, but you can also browse via mood & character type.
