He dressed up like a clown for them
With his face paint white and red
And on his best behavior
In a dark room on the bed
He kissed them all
He’d kill ten thousand people
With a sleight of his hand
Running far, running fast to the dead
He took off all their clothes for them
He put a cloth on their lips
Quiet hands, quiet kiss on the mouth

Sufjan Stevens - John Wayne Gacy Jr.

The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me ‘till I’m sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

Pink Floyd - Brain Damage

I can’t do anything without you
Can’t do anything with you
You drive me crazy, but I love you
You make me lazy, but I love you

I want to hit you, but then I kiss you
Want to kill you, but then I’d miss you
You drive me crazy, but I love you
You make me lazy, but I love you

I’m always waiting by the phone
I can’t wait for you to get home
I’m always crazy when I miss you
I’m always lazy when I miss you

And even though you are my guy
I always freak when I get high
I’m always crazy when I miss you
I’m always lazy when I miss you

Best Coast - Crazy For You

Look to the future, nothing’s there
Don’t know why I even care
Walk around in a haze, seems to be the way I spend my days, I’m stuck in the grey
Turn around and no one’s there, don’t know why I even care
Moods, they swing, the seasons change
Is it you or am I to blame, I always complain
‘Cause you seem to think you know everything
Yeah, you seem to think you know everything
But you don’t know why I cry

Best Coast - Why I Cry

Goodbye cruel world
I’m leaving you today
Goodbye all you people
There’s nothing you can say
To make me change
My mind

And I can feel one of my turns coming on.
I feel cold as a razor blade,
Tight as a tourniquet,
Dry as a funeral drum.
Run to the bedroom,
In the suitcase on the left
You’ll find my favorite axe.
Don’t look so frightened
This is just a passing phase,
One of my bad days.
Would you like to watch T.V.?
Or get between the sheets?
Or contemplate the silent freeway?
Would you like something to eat?
Would you like to learn to fly?
Would ya?
Would you like to see me try?
Would you like to call the cops?
Do you think it’s time I stopped?
Why are you running away?

Pink Floyd - One Of My Turns

Make some scratches on my floor
Crawl down on my hands and knees
In old movies people scream
Choking on their fists when they see shadows like these
But no one screams cuz it’s just me
Locked up in myself
Never gonna get free

The Mountain Goats - In Memory of Satan

So you’re wishing that you never did
All the embarrassing things you’ve done
And you’re wishing you could set it right
And you’re wishing you could stay the night
But then I go again, wishing never solved a problem
If you wanna get it big time, go ahead and get it get it big time
So I think I can solve all my problems by myself
Nevermind, nevermind, nevermind, nevermind
And you think you can solve all your problems by yourself
Nevermind, nevermind, nevermind, nevermind

Yeasayer - Tightrope

I don’t want to know the reasons why love keeps right on walking on down the line. I don’t wanna stand between you and love honey, I just want you to feel fine.

Fleetwood Mac - I Don’t Want To Know

I hope I lie
And tell everyone you were a good wife
And I hope you die
I hope we both die

I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow
I hope it bleeds all day long
Our friends say it’s darkest before the sun rises
We’re pretty sure they’re all wrong

I hope it stays dark forever
I hope the worst isn’t over
And I hope you blink before I do
And I hope I never get sober

And I hope when you think of me years down the line
You can’t find one good thing to say
And I’d hope that if I found the strength to walk out
You’d stay the hell out of my way

I am drowning
There is no sign of land
You are coming down with me
Hand in unlovable hand

The Mountain Goats - No Children

But, when I drink I hear things that aren’t even there. I feel things when I really shouldn’t care.

No mercy, no, no mercy
No mercy, no, no mercy
You just don’t know, you don’t know what you’re doing to me
No mercy, no, no mercy
No mercy, no, no mercy
I’d let you in, I’d let you tie me up and do me

CEO - No Mercy

And not a day goes by
Oh no, I doubt
Time, time can’t remember
What I’m thinking about
Cause when it’s caught up
You’re tangled in those dreams

Beach Fossils - Daydream

They wanna get my
Gold on the ceiling
I ain’t blind
Just a matter of time
Before you steal it
It’s alright
Ain’t no guard in my house

The Black Keys - Gold on the Ceiling

We’re breaking out of our bodies now
Time to see what’s underneath them
I heard about my authentic self
What would I say would I ever meet him?
I guess “you’re guilty of a terrible crime”
And I know it was my birth.
Doing twenty-six to life now on planet earth

Titus Andronicus - Ecce Homo
