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
Astronautalis // Black & Yellow
(Wiz Khalifa cover)
Yeah, you know what it is
Everything I do, I do it big.
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.
a-drunken-worn-philosopherasked: 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:
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.
London Grammar // Wicked Game (Chris Isaak cover)
What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you.
What a wicked thing to say you never felt this way,
What a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you.
Sage Francis // Vonnegut Busy
I like for my shoes to look like they’ve been walked in,
My house to look like it’s been lived in,
My car to look like a coffin that’s been driven off a cliff,
My career like a non-stop graveyard shift.
Blackbird Raum // Honey In The Hair
I fill my mouth up with air, honey in the hair,
Honey in the hair, honey in the hair.
I fill my life up with time, asleep in the vine,
Whiskey and wine, whiskey and wine.
Kristin Hersh // Your Ghost
If I walk down this hallway, tonight,
It’s too quiet.
So I pad through the dark
and call you on the phone
Push your old numbers
and let your house ring
til I wake you ghost.
Squalloscope // Bloodbaths for Birds
The ticking of the clock was tap-tap-tapping against the insides of my skull
While I heard the neighbours moaning on the other side of the wall
And I rocked back and forth on the edge of the bed, trying to keep my insides in
And for a second, I thought I felt the imprint of your fingers like tiny burn marks on my skin.
Flume & Chet Faker // Drop the Game
I’ve been seeing all, I’ve been seeing your soul,
Give me things that I wanted to know,
Tell me things that you’ve done.
I’ve been feeling old, I’ve been feeling cold,
You’re the heat that I know
Listen, you are my sun.
Sia ft. The Weekend + Diplo // Elastic Heart
I’ve got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I’m like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won’t see me fall apart
Cause I’ve got an elastic heart
Damion Suomi // What A Wonderful Game
I think you’re pretty
And you find me charming
And we’re just drunk enough
Let’s fuck each other up like we do
'Cause you're feeling lonely
And I’m so damn horny
And we’re just drunk enough
Let’s fuck each other up here again
What a wonderful game that we play.
Oh Land // Wolf & I
The only place we had to meet was night,
While the sun, he sleeps in shadows, we can hide.
On the mountainside we spent our time together,
But it is gone when morning comes.
And you are the wolf.
Mieka Pauley // Marked Man
If you search your soul, and it sets you free,
And you’re all contrite like you ought to be,
It might get you off, get you right with God,
But you’ll never be right with me.
You’re a marked man, brother,
A marked man, hey,
And get right down on your knees and pray,
And thank the Lord I don’t have my way.
