    TEAM song


    We live in cities you'll never see on screen
    Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
    Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
    And you know, we're on each other's team

    I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air
    So there
    I'm kinda older than I was when I revelled without a care
    So there


    The video has revelled as rebelled, which imo fits better.

    An act of kindness
    Is what you show to me
    Not more than I can take
    Oh, not more than I can take
    Kindness is what you show to me
    It holds me 'till I ache
    Overflow and start to break

    Oh I, got a feeling this will shake me down
    Oh I, kind of hoping this will turn me round

    Deep in a corner of the night
    We were lying in the middle of the road
    Counting the planes as they flew by
    Inconceivable imagining them go
    And drunk we set the world to rights
    As we fell and hit our heads upon the curb
    You make me laugh until I die
    Can you think of any better way to choke?
    Stories told to me and stories told to you
    And did you ever feel like they were ringing true?

    And all their words for glory
    Well they always sounded empty
    When we're looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven
    And way down here upon the ground
    When we're lying in the dirt
    There's no looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven

    Afterglow was my first thought but tbh this kind of works for most of the early-war Decepticons...

    Ready to climb out from under concrete
    Only I get to be sickened by me
    My body a smudge
    Can't make out the details
    Want to start over and come into being

    Exhume our idols and bury our friends
    We're wild and weary but we won't give in
    We're sick with worry
    These nerveless days
    We live on dread in our own gilded age

    Pulled off the highway in Missouri and lo, our hearts were heavy laden
    Made for the chapel with some spray paint for all the things we'd held in secret
    Lord, lift up these lifeless bones
    Light cascading through the windows, all the rainbow's heavy tones

    He has fixed his sign in the sky
    He has raised me from the pit and set me high

    Left that place in ruin, drunk on the spirit and high on fumes
    Checked into a Red Roof Inn, stayed up for several hours and then slept like infants
    In the burning fuselage of my days
    Let my mouth be ever fresh with praise

    He has fixed his sign in the sky
    He has raised me from the pit and set me high

    Pre-war Afterglow

    I know there’s nothing left worth staying for
    Your paradise is something I’ve endured
    See, I don’t think I can fight this anymore
    I’m listening with one foot out the door
    But something has to die to be reborn
    I don’t want to be here anymore

    Lacuna


    Swim with real sharks
    Those who never speak when spoken to
    Hard limits fade into memory
    Once broken through
    Scaling the well
    Every single day instinctively
    Feel shame real shame
    For what my friends must think of me
    Dig through the graveyard
    Rub the bones against my face
    It gets real nice around the graveyard
    Once you've acquired the taste
    And when the clouds do clear away
    Get a momentary chance to see
    The thing I've been trying to beat to death
    The soft creature that I used to be
    The better animal I used to be

    Afterglow?



    Why you looking at me now?
    Why you looking at me again?
    What if I pulled my teeth?
    Cut my hair underneath my chin
    Wrap my curls all around the world
    Throw my pearls all across the floor
    Feeling my beat like a sniper girl
    (Cause I want it more)

    Every night, I live and die
    Feel the party to my bones
    Watch the wasters blow the speakers
    Spill my guts beneath the outdoor light
    It's just another graceless night
    I hate the headlines and the weather
    I'm 19 and I'm on fire
    But when we're dancing I'm alright
    It's just another graceless night

    Afterglow and Quarrel's Battle Couple song, but tbh could just as easily be a rallying cry for early Decepticons

    If you feel so empty
    So used up, so let down
    If you feel so angry
    So ripped off, so stepped on
    You're not the only one
    Refusing to back down
    You're not the only one
    So get up!

    Lacuna.



    Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks
    Then gave her father forty-one, and left a tragic puzzle
    If only they had given her an instrument, those puritans
    Had lost the plot completely
    See what happens when you muzzle

    A person's creativity
    And do not let them sing and scream
    And nowadays it's worse 'cause kids have automatic handguns
    It takes about an hour to teach someone to play the ukulele
    About the same to teach someone to build a standard pipe bomb
    YOU DO THE MATH

    Lacuna

    We're supposed to be so strong
    Instead of fragile creatures who admit their weakness
    Reaching out for help when times are bleakest
    We hold it in and pretend
    It's the opposite of what we think it is
    Instincts, inset for a reason
    To avoid is treason
    Involution's own means of prevention
    Keeping you from tasting the poison
    It's natural selection
    Yet intelligence is testing boundaries
    Why am I chasing "happy" when I have companionship
    Success and money
    All the things I thought would fill the empty
    But now it runs its course so deep inside of me
    I silently scream in agony
    While my friends and family watch on happily
    They can't see the clouds above me

    Overcast, blocking sunny
    I laugh it off like it's funny
    Who wants to be the lone wolf feeling crummy

    Is there any such thing as a waste of time?
    Time's the one wasting us
    And all the moments that you feel the need to keep
    Will surely be swept away

    They saythat it will heal up all your wounds
    And isn't that a wound itself?

    Are you dangerous?
    With your measure of proof
    Thoughts are slivers of gold
    Abscond with the truth

    How does it feel
    To be your own deceiver?
    Signals raised
    Then lost to the aether

    I was raised up believing I was somehow unique
    Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see
    And now after some thinking, I'd say I'd rather be
    A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me

    But I don't, I don't know what that will be
    I'll get back to you someday soon you will see

    Let me in, Let me go
    I've seen 'em losing all control
    I'm turning in my lost soul
    Before I turn into a ghost

    I will not let this get the best of me
    I will not bargain with my bones
    I think
    I'll break the chains of what you made for me
    I'll change-
    I'll change.
    And build it up just to burn it down.

    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Burn it down.
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Just to burn it- burn it down.
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Burn it down.
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Just to burn it- burn it down.

    I've kept it in but I need out
    - - -
    I've fought your battles,
    though a battle for things that I could live without

    You left me hungry and now
    - - -
    all the mess you made-
    a masquerade- a game you played out

    I will not let this get the best of me
    I will not bargain with my bones
    I think
    I'll break the chains of what you made for me
    I'll change-
    I'll change
    to build it up just to burn it down.

    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Burn it down.
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Just to burn it down (burn it down).
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Burn it down.
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. Just to burn it- burn it down.
    Burn it down.
    O-oh oh. O-oh oh. (Down, down)

    BREAKING THIS THREAD BACK IN WITH A LACUNA SONG!


    They say there’s good grief
    But how can you tell it from the bad?
    Maybe it’s only in the fact
    Good grief’s the one that’s in your past

    I got snow in my pockets
    Went down again head first
    Laced drill bits to my pointe shoes
    Pirouette through the hardwood to paydirt
    Night falls, day breaks; time
    Has a funny kind of violence and I’m
    Tryna keep in mind
    It can’t leave you the way it finds you
    Good grief:
    I’ve heard people say it
    What a phrase, what a state to be in
    But I don’t know where they go to get get
    That feeling
    Good grief

    And my knees stay clean
    Not much for praying
    I do my own stunts and my own saving
    But there’s something amiss
    Something I been missing maybe maybe
