Friday Lyrics Mash: Closer, Closer, Older, Closer, Closer

We ain’t ever getting older
I want to fuck you like an animal

We ain’t ever getting older
I want to feel you from the inside

We ain’t ever getting older
I want to fuck you like an animal

We ain’t ever getting older
I want to fuck you like an animal

We ain’t ever getting older
I want to feel you from the inside

We ain’t ever getting older
I want to fuck you like an animal

No, we ain’t ever getting older
No, we ain’t ever getting older
No, we ain’t ever getting older
No, we ain’t ever getting older

You get me closer to god
So, baby, pull me closer

Friday Lyrics Mash: Closer, Closer, Older, Closer, Closer

We Are Not Entitled to Be Free From Uncomfortable Emotions

Everybody’s heads are burstin’
Everyone is fixin’ to explode
All the witches’ tongues are cursin’
Turnin’ enemies to toads

Everybody’s seein’ demons
Everyone is tryin’ to survive
All the warlocks’ lips are screamin’
Droppin’ enemies like flies

Everybody’s movin’ slowly
Everyone is scared to choose
The shamans’ throats are chantin’ holy
‘Cause no one ever wants to lose

We Are Not Entitled to Be Free From Uncomfortable Emotions

Splendor & Misery, by clipping.

Splendor & Misery’s best songs manage to succeed on their own terms, independent of the overarching narrative. “All Black” sets up the storyline in third-person: “So the danger, clear and present/Is presented as the gift of freedom/Wrapped in days of rapping to himself/Up until his vocal chords collapse.” It nods toward the familiar with turns of phrase (the “all black everything” vacuum of space) and playful anachronisms. “Air ’Em Out” is a trap anthem in zero-gravity, its gleaming synths and skittering drums floating skyward with no bassline to hold them down. Diggs allows his tightly-wound delivery to go slack here, imbuing the track with a looseness and personality that’s sorely missing from much of the album.

Friday Lyrics Mash: I Can’t Stop, Control, Hold, Or Otherwise Fight This Feeling

I can’t stop the feeling
And I’m getting closer than I ever thought I might
I tell myself that I can’t hold out forever
I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the
Cause I feel so secure when we’re together
Come crashing through your door
All through my city, all through my home
What started out as friendship has grown stronger

I can’t stop the feeling
‘Cause I can’t fight this feeling anymore
(I can’t stop the feeling)

I said there is no reason for my fear
And I’m getting closer than I ever thought I might
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Room on lock the way we rock it, so don’t stop
Nowhere to hide when I’m getting you close
I got this feeling inside my bones
All those things I shouldn’t do
Feeling good, good, creeping up on you

I can’t stop the feeling
Baby, I can’t fight this feeling anymore
(I can’t stop the feeling)

On a cold, dark winter’s night
I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for
I fly so high, no ceiling, when I’m in my zone
I’ve forgotten what I started fighting for
So just dance, dance, dance
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh
And it always seems that I’m following you, girl
I’m keeping you in sight

I can’t stop the feeling
And I can’t fight this feeling anymore
(I can’t stop the feeling)

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
And under the lights when everything goes
And even as I wander I’m keeping you in sight
Got this feeling in my body
It’s in the air, it’s in my blood, it’s rushing on
All those things I shouldn’t do
Don’t need no reason, don’t need control
Nowhere to hide when I’m getting you close

I can’t stop the feeling
And I can’t fight this feeling anymore
(I can’t stop the feeling)

And ain’t nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
And ain’t nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

Friday Lyrics Mash: I Can’t Stop, Control, Hold, Or Otherwise Fight This Feeling

Listen of the Week: Eluvium

False Readings On, by Eluvium

False Readings On also finds Cooper slowly integrating some new sounds into his established template. Though symphonic piano suites have always been an Eluvium staple, you’d rarely, if ever, describe one of Cooper’s songs as “orchestral.” “Fugue State” changes that, however, as Cooper bends his drones and ebowed guitars to evoke the soft strain of singing saw or muted brass. Underneath it all is what sounds like a flurry of synthesized woodwinds; there’s something uncanny about it, a disorientation that’s truly beguiling.

Friday Lyrics Mash: Girl, You Have No Faith in that Pill I Took in Ibiza

You see the medicine
They said tell us how to make it
                                                            ’cause we’re getting real impatient
But you don’t wanna be high like me
And just hand it this way

You don’t wanna ride the bus like this
I’m a real big baller
                                                            ’cause I made a million dollars
Don’t even need a drink of water
Acetaminophen

I took a pill in Ibiza
Give me sugar pill
                                                            But fuck it, it was something to do
To make the headache go away
Acetaminophen

Never really knowing why like me
Never really knowing why like me
Never really knowing why like me
                                                            ‘Cause as soon as the sun comes up
Well strip the bark right off a tree
