Lyrics
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes (High, high hopes)
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said, fulfill the prophecy
Be something greater, go make a legacy
Manifest destiny, back in the days
We wanted everything, wanted everything
Mama said, burn your biographies
Rewrite your history, light up your wildest dreams
Museum victories, every day
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said don't give up, it's a little complicated
All tied up, no more love and I'd hate to see you waiting

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes
Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes (High, high hopes)

Mama said, it's uphill for oddities
The stranger crusaders, ain't ever wannabes
The weird and the novelties don't ever change
We wanted everything, wanted everything (High, high hopes)

Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise and never come down, oh
Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise and never come down

Mama said don't give up, it's a little complicated
All tied up, no more love and I'd hate to see you waiting
They say it's all been done but they haven't seen the best of me
So I got one more run and it's gonna be a sight to see

Thanks for watching!

Lyrics
Come with it now!
Come with it now!

The microphone explodes, shattering the mold
Either drop the hits like de la O or get the fuck off the commode
With the sure shot, sure to make the bodies drop
Drop and don't copy, yo, don't call this a co-op
Terror rains drenchin', quenchin' the thirst
Of the power dons, that five-sided Fistagon
The rotten sore on the face of Mother Earth gets bigger
The trigger’s cold, empty your purse

Rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells
They rally 'round the family with a pocket full of shells

Weapons, not food, not homes, not shoes
Not need, just feed the war, cannibal animal
I walk the corner to the rubble, that used to be a library
Line up to the mind cemetery, now
What we don't know keeps the contracts alive and movin'
They don't gotta burn the books, they just remove 'em
While arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells
Rally round the family, pockets full of shells

Thanks for watching!

Lyrics
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

Fools, said I, you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence

Thanks for watching!

Lyrics
Here is a heart, here is a heart
I made it for you so take it
battered and braised, grilled and sauteed
just how you like it, like it
You know I live to fill you up

Blood of my blood, dripping with love
I'll bring you a thing you need most
silent between supplies and machines
I hang in the corners like a ghost
You know I live to be seen through

Sleep like the dead through the noise your head
my monitors click and whir and glow
I'm with you all day and I would still stay
forever and onward just this close
You know I live to keep you safe

No better way that I can see
than spend all the time while you're asleep
when holding your hands inside of mine
I wanna be here and nowhere else
rationing off bits of myself
so I can crumble at your side.

I can't explain it but I have to try
If you evaporate the seas will rise
til they devour the sky

Here is a heart, here is a heart
I made it for you so take it
battered and braised, grilled and sauteed
just how you like it, like it

No better way that I can see
than spend all the time while you're asleep
when holding your hands inside of mine
I wanna be here and nowhere else
rationing off bits of myself
so I can crumble at your side.

Thanks for watching!

Lyrics
take me down
6 underground
the ground beneath your feet
laid out low
nothing to go
nowhere a way to meet.

i've got a head full of drought
down here
so far off of losing out
round here
Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace.

calm me down
bring it round
to way high off your street
i can see
like nothing else
in me
you're better than I wannabe

don't think 'cos i understand
i care,
don't think 'cos i'm talking
we're friends
Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

talk me down
safe and sound,
too strung up to sleep
wear me out
scream and shout
swear my time's never cheap

i fake my life like i've lived
too much,
i take whatever you're giving; not enough,
Overground, watch this space
I'm open

i fake my life like i've lived
too much,
i take whatever you're giving; not enough,
Overground, watch this space
I'm open
to falling from grace.

Thanks for watching!

Guess what's happening now

Relax, don't do it
When you want to go to it
Relax, don't do it
when you wanna come
Relax, don't do it
When you want to suck it to it
Relax, don't do it
when you wanna come

But shoot it in the right direction
Make making it your intention
Live those dreams, scheme those schemes
Gotta hit me (hit me) hit me (hit me)
Hit me with those laser beams
Ow ow ow, laser beam me

Thanks for watching!

I was sitting outside the Premieres show room Friday night at VividCon an hour before the show started, the first one to line up and with no one else in sight, gulping alcohol and trying to stop shaking. It was around that time - during my ninth VVC - that I finally came to accept that I'll always be nervous at these things. And I'm not sure that's a bad thing.

Some thoughts on the conCollapse )

tl;dr - starships are meant to fly

Here are a few of the new (non-CVV) vids I enjoyed during the weekend:

Rock a rhyme that's right on time

By bradcpu and milly
Length: 2:36
Fandom: Legends of Tomorrow
Song/Artist: "It's Tricky" by Run-DMC
Premiered at Club Vivid, VividCon 2016
Here on AO3 / Here on Tumblr

Milly had the idea but not the time, so we turned it into a Club Vivid collab. I did the verses and most of the clipping, and she handled most of the choruses and instrumental bits.

The show is my favorite thing on TV at the moment, which is a statement I didn't expect to ever make after watching the first episode! It's almost like they took a team of comic book characters and had them slowly evolve into real people, with real relationships and complex motivations. That's been a fascinating arc to watch. It doesn't hurt that it's beautiful to look at ... and of course I'm a sucker for team feels.

Lyrics
This speech is my recital, I think it's very vital
To rock (A rhyme), that's right (On time)
It's Tricky is the title, here we go

It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's Tricky, it's Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
It's Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky, tricky (Tricky) tricky

In New York the people talk and try to make us rhyme
They really (hawk) but we just (walk) because we have no time
And in the city it's a pity 'cause we just can't hide
Tinted windows don't mean nothin', they know who's inside

It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (How is it D?) Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky) huh!

When I wake up people take up mostly all of my time
I'm not singin', phone keep ringin' 'cause I make up a rhyme
I'm not braggin', people naggin' 'cause they think I'm a star
Always tearin' what I'm wearin', I think they're goin' too far
A girl named Carol follows Daryll every gig we play
Then D dissed her and dismissed her, now she's jockin' Jay
I ain't lyin', girls be cryin' 'cause I'm on TV
They even bother my poor father 'cause he's down with me

It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky (How is it?) Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)
It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time
It's tricky, tricky (Tricky) Tr
We are not thugs (We don't use drugs) but you assume (On your own)
They offer coke (And lots of dope) but we just leave it alone
It's like that y'all (Y'all), but we don't quit
You keep on (Rock!) shock! 'cause this is it

Thanks for watching!
