Welp, I finally made a Jos mix.

led to the flood

download (.zip file)

1. tristan - patrick wolf

Forever young
I come from God knows where
Because now I'm here
Without a hope or care

I am trouble
And I am troubled too

My name is Tristan
And I am alive

Sorrow by name
And sorrow by nature
Working for joy
On overtime

2. white waves - shearwater

He took me out on the tide
To make pearls of my eyes
And uncover me, oh, without asking
Tore every stich, every line, every hook, every eye
Between him and the diamonds, diamonds
I would not give, but maybe tonight I will
With you holding my arms and my stuttering heart
As I'm bound and flayed alive

3. song to the siren - tim buckley

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you

4. never let me down again - depeche mode

I'm taking a ride
With my best friend
I hope he never lets me down again
He knows where he's taking me
Taking me where I want to be
I'm taking a ride
With my best friend
We're flying high
We're watching the world pass us by
Never want to come down
Never want to put my feet back down
On the ground

5. ship of fools - erasure

You were the baby of the class you know
You were so young and so uncertain
Suffer little children
Oh what a poor soul

Do we not sail on the ship of fools
Why is life so precious and so cruel

6. army dreamers - kate bush

"What could he do?
Should have been a rock star"
But he didn't have the money for a guitar
"What could he do?
Should have been a politician"
But he never had a proper education
"What could he do?
Should have been a father"
But he never even made it to his twenties
What a waste
Army dreamers
Ooh, what a waste of
Army dreamers

7. dark paradise - lana del rey

And there's no remedy for memory your face
Like a melody, it won't lift my head
Your soul is hunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Every time I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side

8. runaway - the national

What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We've got another thing coming undone
And it's taking us over

We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead, go ahead, throw your arms in the air tonight
We don't bleed when we don't fight
Go ahead, go ahead, lose our shirts in the fire tonight

What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
We got another thing coming undone

But I won't be no runaway
Cause I won't run

9. breaking the yearlings - shearwater

I curl right back into the sound
I take one breath and spiral down
And you, not watching the road
Or watching the flood stage rise
We are yearlings
Now watching the tide run out
Till what the daylight hides
Is known

10. machine gun - portishead

I saw a savior
A savior come my way
I thought I'd see it
At the cold light of day
But now I realize that I'm
Only for me

If only I could see
Return myself to me
And recognize the poison in my heart
There is no other place
No one else I face
The remedy, it will agree, with how I feel

11. oblivion - patrick wolf

I said I need no one
But oh God, now here it comes
And it's too dark to aim this gun
Clicking now faster, faster, faster
Once again I'm on the run
And I hear you say, oh my stubborn son
Don't you said you need no one
But don't you see danger, danger, danger
You're headed to oblivion

12. combat lover - nina kinert

Be careful don't be so vicious with me
My love can also be a killer machine

13. go long - joanna newsom

with the loneliness
of you mighty men,
with your mighty kiss
that might never end,
while, so far away,
in the seat of the west,
burns the fount
of the heat
of that loneliness.

There's a man
who only will speak in code,
backing slowly, slowly down the road.
May he master everything
that such men may know
about loving, and then letting go.

14. the seven sisters - rainer maria

you said I look like a stone sinking
but I am a constellation cut out in the sky
and if I have stopped burning
will you know in your lifetime?
and should I feel cold and far?
and should I feel weightless?

I imagine safety in the stars
'cause you make so many wishes
do you ever hear what the stars are saying to you?

15. leave my body - florence + the machine

I don't need a husband, don't need no wife
And I don't need the day, I don't need the night, the night
Don't need the birds let them fly away
And I don't want the clouds, they never seem to stay

I don't want no future
I don't need no past
One grand moment
Is all I ask

16. breathing underwater - metric

I'm the blade
You're the knife
I'm the wind
You're the kite
They were right when they said
We were breathing underwater
Out of place all the time
In a world that wasn't mine to take
I'll wait

Is this my life?
Am I breathing underwater?

17. heart of my own - basia bulat

Under that burning ether that falls
Down on these walls
Burning my arms
I've been alone
When I sat by you

For every word I could undo
I've been uncrossed
and I've been untrue
I've been the thorn
I've been the heart.

With a heart of my own
Burn it down low
The light in your verse
And the shadow between
The way that I was when I used to know

If I go
What do I hold?

18. animal life - shearwater

Charging down the maw of the ocean
I wanna come close, I wanna come closer
I held your name inside my mouth through all the days of wandering

But called out from the mouth of oblivion
Cast away like dogs from the shelter
I shed the dulling armor plates
That once collected radiance

And surging at the blood's perimeter
The half-remembered wild interior
Of an animal life
