I must give the impression
That I have the answers for everything.
You were so disappointed
To see me unravel so easily.

But it's only change,
Only everything I know.
Even the things that seem still
Are still changing.

Mother misses her baby,
But I only wanted to be me.
She changed address and haircuts
And boyfriends and light bulbs it's easy.

But it's only change,
Only everything I know.
Even the things that seem still
Are still changing.

I keep focused on details,
It keeps me from feeling the big things.
But watch the microscope long enough
Things that seem still are still changing.

Even the things that seem still
Are still changing.

I always seem to discover good bands years after they've broken up. Thus why I have spent the last couple of months catching up with the back-catalogue (of 4 albums) of Ben Folds 5. Here are a couple of my favourites:

She don't want nobody near
But you can't get away from that
They appear and disappear
And they all get a string attached
Pretty soon they got you hanging on a line
Pretty soon they're singing one by one the same old rhyme
They say, "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."

She don't want nobody home
Cause it's a little too crowded then
But she don't wanna be alone
So they just keep pouring in
Pretty soon they got her heading for the door
She comes home to find that they're not hanging round no more
She says, "I'm alright, you just can't get home tonight."
Don't you wonder what she looks like in the light?
She says, "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."

Pretty whitewashed lies
Endless alibis
And reasons that need cleaning every night
Half a world away
You can't wash the stain of the deceiving
And the things that you cannot believe, and well...

She don't want no one around
Cause she don't want anybody to see
What she looks like when she's down
Cause that's a really sad place to be
Pretty soon she gets them crawling up the walls
The she wonders why the beg her please no never call
She says, "I'm ok. It's alright. Hey, look who's on TV tonight."
She says, "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."
Don't you wonder why it's dark outside at night?
She says, "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."

As promised, second instalment of Ariya. This time, Noch' Koroche Dnya, Night is Shorter than Day, from the album of the same name. It's like Europe's Final Countdown in that it's very long but has only two verses (though this is longer at over 7 minutes, mostly due to Kholstinin's fantastic guitar solo in the middle). Again, I've translated the bits I can be bothered to do (the easy bits, then).

Just a quick note to say if you don't know how to use tags, or haven't heard of them before, the relevant FAQ entry can be found here.

I've done a number of the tags for previous entries; I'll do some more when I get bored. The full list of tags can be seen here. I'll trust you guys to add tags if you want to (feel free to do my job and update previous entries if you're also really bored) but check that the band/artist isn't in the tags list under another alias before you add a second one! Most of the entries and bands mentioned seem to be mine. The Lightning Seeds seem to appear a lot, mostly because I've posted the song Open Goals by them about three time without realising - I must sub-consciencely really like it!
