Wes’s Random Weekend Theme – 08/03/12

“We kill the lights and put on a show
It’s all a lie
But you’d never know…”

Recently I’ve started a generally useless but fun tradition of sorts on Friday afternoon. I hit shuffle on my iPod as I leave work for the day, and the first song to come up I make my theme song for the weekend. Some of the choices have been nonsensical, other times like this week and a month back when the choice was Cypress Hill’s “Insane in the Brain” the selection has been full of Win and Awesome. I’ve decided to start sharing these, seeing as that I have this blog and all to do such with.

This week’s track is “Kill the Lights” by one of my favourite bands The Birthday Massacre (official site). It’s the killer opening track off their album “Walking With Strangers”:

Lyrics and more stuff after the jump: 

It has also been used to cool effect in this fan video for the interactive web-comic Homestuck:

Lyrics:

This story’s missing a wishing well
No mirror to show and tell
No kiss that can break the spell
I’m falling asleep

Every prince is a fantasy
The witch is inside of me
Her poison will wash away the memory

We kill the lights and put on a show
It’s all a lie
But you’d never know
The star will shine
And then it will fall
And you will forget it all

And after midnight we’re all the same
No glass shoe to bring us fame
Nobody to take the blame
We’re falling apart

Every story’s a waiting game
A flower for every name
Their colors are paling
In the falling rain

We kill the lights and put on a show
It’s all a lie
But you’d never know
The star will shine
And then it will fall
And you will forget it all

Now you know

It’s so much better to pretend
There’s something waiting for you here
Every letter that you wrote
Has found its way to me, my dear
You can make believe that what you say
Is what I want to hear
I’ll keep dancing through this
Beautiful delusional career
Faking every tear
Looking like a compromise suicide
Keeping all my dreams alive
