Jumping on the bandwagon

Accepting the Jez challenge. I don't consider any of these (ok maybe one or two) to be particularly obscure, but then they are on my playlist and possibly not on yours. For anyone whose internet's been broken for the last couple of days, guess the track and artist from the lyrics, no googling, blah blah blah. Chocolate fish for anyone who gets all of them etc.

Crickets are chirping, the water is high
There's a soft cotton dress on the line hanging dry
Window wide open, African trees
Bent over backwards from a hurricane breeze.

Roadblock across my heart and a riot in my mind
'Cause I know that you are out there somewhere
Trying to find a place to hide
The shadow of a ruthless hand is hunting for your soul
And though I don't know where you are
I'll never let you go.

NIN - Closer laoke
Help me... tear down my reason
Help me... it's your sex I can smell
Help me... you make me perfect
Help me think of somebody else.

Like all the dead-end pricks
You get your critical kicks
With anything that sticks
But you just leave me sick
And every empty can I see
In the gutter of a dead-end street
And everything that just ain't true
Reminds me of you.

I must stop
try not to allow it to get worse for her
She has to keep her attitude to the whole thing positively
We will get it right.
I've got to stop all that, I'm not talking about anything that annoys her
Good if I don't feel right
Must keep going to myself without her realising it.

If I run tonight would you promise to be there
Would you say the words that comfort me, they're all around I swear
If I run tonight and I take it overboard with a word or two
I give to you, it's all I can afford.

Wonder how long we can get away
Side by side, I'm stuck to my phony pride
Always craving for something missing
Never get it, always trying
Never really been down with someone
Every one of us would wish to be.

Your'e, so fit, and you know it and i only dream of you
Cause my life's, such a bitch but you can change it
Maybe you need, somebody just like me,
Don't turn me down cause, I've got no car and I've got no money.

What did you think something like this wouldn't happen
The biggest hole in your mindscapes all been broken

Salmonella Dub - For The Love Of It morbid_curious
Simplification of skank beat
Free stylin' ourselves while we jam
Stripping it back to the roots, Virgin
Nothing else treats me like you do.

Shriekback - Nemesis fuvenusrs
In the jungle of the senses
Tinkerbell and Jack the ripper
Love has no meaning not where they come from
But we know pleasure is not that simple
Very little fruit is forbidden
Sometimes we wobble sometimes we're strong
But you know evil is an exact science
Being carefully correctly wrong.

What becomes a legend most?
I'll let you think about it,
Space Ghost coast-to-coast
While I give thanks today
For all the things I stole
And all the things I gave away.
You make experiment, you try to
Teach a lesson and then take a stand.
A fake handshake don't make no man.

If kittens could talk
They would whisper soft riddles into my ear
Tickling me with their whiskers
Making me laugh...
Unlike you
Who just makes me want to smash
The heads of these little kittens
Into raspberry jelly

Looking back and asking myself
'What the hell'd you let them break your spirit for?'
You know, their lives ran in circles so small
Ah, they thought they'd seen it all
And they could not make a place for a girl who'd seen the ocean

I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown
So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie

Morphine - Let's Take a Trip rivet
Somewhere there's no distractive breeze of information
Leaking through the windows dripping from the trees
Somewhere there's no earthquakes no other people's anxious questions
No nervous wrecks going down.

Walking south along the river
Never had he found that twist of pleasure
Remembering times when they were younger
Setting the town on fire

And watching as his fellow friends fell apart in the wake
Claiming it was all just a mistake when his finger pulled the trigger

Cake - Nugget dragonvyxn
Now nimble fingers that dance on numbers
Will eat your children and steal your thunder,
While heavy torsos that heave and hurl
Who crunch like nuts in the mouths of squirrels.

There's a ghost on the horizon
When I go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I'm scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don't want to be the one
Left in there, left in there.

Afro-Celt Sound System (with Sinead O'Connor) - Release happyinmotion
Reach out and you'll touch me
Make effort to speak to me
Call out and you'll hear me
Be happy for me

Don't argue amongst yourselves
Because of the loss of me
I haven't gone anywhere
but out of my body.

Interesting, the emotional maelstrom that resulted from listening to some tracks I haven't listened to for years.

So, Jez, do I win at obscurity? I put money on there being at least one track there that nobody will get, even if they do use google.

Also - who has Psilonaut? I have one track and Need More With A Passion. I would go a long way for more of this..
