"As she grimly walked away,
'I'm leaving you' she said,
'and I have nothing new to say,
like the second album by Portishead"

- Armando Iannucci's first ever poem

Definitely the top-5 Beach Boys lyric written other than by Brian Wilson....

"Feel Flows"
-Beach Boys-
J Rieley;Carl Wilson
Unfolding enveloping missiles of soul
Recall senses sadly
Mirage like soft blue like lanterns below
To light the way gladly

Whether whistling heaven's clouds disappear
Whether wind withers memory
Whether whiteness whisks soft shadows away

(White hot glistening shadowy flows)
Feel flows, feel goes
(Black hot glistening shadowy flows)

Unbending, never ending tablets of time
Record all the yearning
Unfearing, all appearing message divine
Eases the burning

Whether willing witness waits at my mind
Whether hope dampens memory
Whether wondrous will stands tall at my side

(White hot glistening shadowy flows)
Feel flows, feel goes
(Black hot glistening shadowy flows)

Encasing, all embracing wreath of repose
Engulfs all the senses
Imposing, unclosing thoughts that compose
Retire the fences

Whether wholly heartened life fades away
Whether harps heal the memory
Whether wholly heartened life fades away
Whether wondrous will stands tall at my side
Whether whiteness whisks soft shadows away

(White hot glistening shadowy flows)
Feel flows, feel goes
(Black hot glistening shadowy flows)
(White hot glistening shadowy flows)
Feel flows, feelings to grow
(White hot glistening shadowy flows)

White hot glistening shadowy flows
White hot glistening shadowy flows
White hot glistening shadowy flows

Pulp - The Fear
This is the music from the bachelors den
The sound of loneliness turned up to 10
A horror soundtrack from a stagnant water bed
And it sounds just like this

This is the sound of someone losing the plot
Making out that they're okay when they're not
You're gonna like it...but not a lot


Pulp - Party Hard
I was having a whale of a time until you're Uncle Psychosis arrived
Why do we have to half-kill ourselves just to prove we're alive?


Massive Attack - Antistar
I turn a stone i'll find you there
Into reflected light i'll stare
You blind me with flash bulbs
And puzzle me with syllables


Suede - My Insatiable One
On the escalator, we shit paracetamol

The Moody Blues- Higher and Higher

Blasting, billowing, bursting forth
With the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes
Man with his flaming pyre
Has conquered the wayward breezes
Climbing to tranquility
Far above the cloud
Conceiving the heavens
Clear of misty shroud

Love and hate was in the air, like pollen from a flower
Somewhere in April time, they add another hour

I guess I'd better think up a way to spend my time
Just when I'm ready to sit inside, it's summer time
Should I go fishing or get a friend to hang around
It's back to summer, back to basics, hang around

Getting drunk out on the beach, or playing in a band
And getting out of school meant getting out of hand

Was this your celebrated summer? Was that your celebrated summer?

Then the sun disintegrates between a wall of clouds
I summer where I winter at, and no one is allowed there

Do you remember when the first snowfall fell
When summer barely had a snowball's chance in Hell

"Bridge Over Troubled Water"
- Paul Simon-
Performed by Simon & Garfunkle
When you're weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
I'm on your side. When times get rough
And friends just can't be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When you're down and out,
When you're on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
I'll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pain is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine.
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.

Massive Attack - Protection

This girl I know needs some shelter
She don't believe anyone can help her

She's doing so much harm,
doing so much damage
But you don't want to get involved
You tell her she can manage

And you can't change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her

I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her
just the way you found her

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

Stump - Buffalo

I like when its different, but it's just not the same
The weather is perfect except for the rain

Neutral Milk Hotel - The King of Carrot Flowers Part One

When you were young, you were the King of carrot flowers
And how you built a tower tumbling through the trees
In holy rattlesnake that fell all around your feet

And your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder
And dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
As we would lay and learn what each others bodies were for

And this is the room, one afternoon I knew I could love you
And from above you how I sank into your soul
Into that secret place where no one dares to go

And your mom would drink until' she was no longer speaking
And dad would dream of all the different ways to die
Each one a little more than he could dare to try

Disco Inferno - The Last Dance

Every step that we tread
The dead are behind us

Throwing shadows out over our heads

And they land far in front of us
No oceans left to cross
No mountains left to climb

Cause that's what I've been told

And it's got so hard

To look around

And see just who can save you
If you don't have a pot of gold

Was there ever a time like this?

As the noise of the past
Builds up into a crescendo

The layers of rubbish 
waste that accrue
Are amplified a million times or more
But our heads just can't cope
 as we fall
Into the arms 
of the waiting mystics

Books burning barrels turning

A million wasted futures light up the night sky

Small hopes flash past and wave
While foreign forces wait and pray
And a fear of the future beats so deep in our hearts
That we’ll all but destroy ourselves
Like the centuries-old feuds

Being upgraded with high-tech weapons

In the end it's not the future
But the past that'll get us

I always believed that ideas cost lives

That's why I was always in line
For the sacrifice

But now my eyes point ahead

Away from the ghosts of the dead

The Cure - Apart

he waits for her to understand, but she won't understand at all
she waits all night for him to call, but he won't call anymore
he waits to hear her say "forgive", but she just drops her pearl-black eyes
and prays to hear him say "i love you", but he tells no more lies

he waits for her to sympathize, but she won't sympathize at all
she waits all night to feel his kiss, but always wakes alone
he waits to hear her say "forget", but she just hangs her head in pain
and prays to hear him say, "no more, i'll never leave again"

how did we get this far apart?
we used to be so close together
how did we get this far apart?
i thought this love would last forever

XTC - Snowman
People will always be tempted to wipe their feet,
On anything with 'welcome' written on it

XTC - Humble Daisy
Brighter than all of the others on the window sill
I'll sing about you if nobody else will

Jesus Jones - Blissed
And I expect so much more from today
Than just a time between tomorrow and yesterday

The Magnetic Fields - 100,000 Fireflies
You won't be happy with me
But give me one more chance
You won't be happy anyway

LCD Soundsystem - Tonite
(Then) life is finite
But shit, it feels like forever

The entirety of Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
