Morning Parade - Shake The Cage

  • Playlist JDK#41 (January 2014)
  • EP : Alienation
  • Origin : Harlow (England)
  • Lyrics :

Berate and sing songs of ignorance
A heart so filled up with insolence
Carefree and unsung your cross to bear
Like a wasp in a jar just gasping for air

You shake the cage
The Cage

Where once your words fell upon your plate
Through space and through time they permeate
We want to live a life less ordinary now
We want to take a bite and taste the cherry now
Your tongue longs for the bittersweet
Your tongue

Shake the cage
The Cage
You shake the cage
The cage

Lorde - A World Alone

  • Track n°46 from Playlist JDK#40 (December 2013)
  • Album : Pure Heroine
  • Origin : Auckland (New Zealand)
  • Lyrics :

That slow burn wait while it gets dark,
Bruising the sun, I feel grown up with you in your car
I know it’s dumb

We’ve both got a million bad habits to kick
Not sleeping is one
We’re biting our nails, you’re biting my lip
I’m biting my tongue

When people are talking, people are talking
When People are talking, people are talking

Raise a glass, ‘cause I’m not done saying it
They all wanna get rough, get away with it
Let ‘em talk ‘cause we’re dancing in this world alone
We’re all alone
We’re alone

All my fake friends and all of their noise
Complain about work
They’re studying business, I study the floor
And you haven’t stopped smoking all night
Maybe the Internet raised us
Or maybe people are jerks

When people are talking, people are talking (But not you)
When people are talking, people are talking

Raise a glass, ‘cause I’m not done saying it
They all wanna get rough, get away with it
Let ‘em talk ‘cause we’re dancing in this world alone
We’re all alone
We’re alone

All the double-edged people and schemes
They make a mess then go home and get clean
You’re my best friend, and we’re dancing in a world alone,
We’re all alone
We’re all alone

I know we’re not everlasting
We’re a train wreck waiting to happen
One day the blood won’t flow so gladly
One day we’re all get still
When people are talking, people are talking
Get still

When people are talking, people are talking
When people are talking, people are talking

Raise a glass, ‘cause I’m not done saying it
They all wanna get rough, get away with it
Let ‘em talk ‘cause we’re dancing in this world alone
We’re all alone
We’re alone

All the double-edged people and schemes
They make a mess then go home and get clean
You’re my best friend, so we’re dancing in a world alone
We’re all alone
We’re all alone

When people are talking, people are talking
When people are talking, people are talking
When people are talking, people are talking
When people are talking, people are talking

Let ‘em talk

  • Origin : Brooklyn (New York)
  • Lyrics :

You’re the space caught in between 
These eyes and how they see 
A thousand of my words could never 
Taste like yours to me 

Yeah you take me there 
Where they’ll never go 
Like you’ve never feared 
Never feared the fall 
You take me higher 

With you I understand 
What’s to lose in love 
But all the greater, then 
To gain because 
You take me higher 

You make me high 

We can burn the daylight 
Like it’s money on a tree 
But you’re the only one 
Who knows that no price can catch me 

Yeah you take me there 
Where they’ll never go 
Like you’ve never feared 
Never feared the fall 
You take me higher 

With you I understand 
What’s to lose in love 
But all the greater, then, 
To gain because 
You take me higher 

You make me high 
High 
High 
You make me higher

Summer at being the cat’s skin, baby
Singing just for the thrill
Everyone knows about you, don’t they?
You’re doing it for the thrill

Whatever’s left, you find
You got to give it what you got now
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT WHAT YOU GOT

Baby, it’s true, we leave nothing for you
You got to give it what you got now
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT WHAT YOU GOT

Our love, is nothing wrong with feeling 
Our love, you’ll never be the same

Do you know they would love you, baby
The more will they your gun
Deep and then ??
Could make a hit out of any song

Whatever’s left, you find
You got to give it what you got now
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT WHAT YOU GOT

Stay, I’m your all
Or leave it alone
You got to give it what you got now
YOU GOT TO GIVE IT WHAT YOU GOT

Our love, is nothing wrong with feeling 
Our love, you’ll never be the same

Born and raised in these MEAN STREETS
That’s where she learned how to keep the beat
Some say that girl’s got something
I heard her name half a million times

Born and raised in these mean streets
That’s where she learned how to keep the beat
Some say that girl’s got something
I heard her name half a million times

Born and raised in these MEAN STREETS
That’s where she learned how to keep the beat
Some say that girl’s got something
I heard her name half a million times

Born and raised in these mean streets
That’s where she learned how to keep the beat
Some say that girl’s got something
I hear her name half a million times
