Methodist Despair Playlist: Part 3 (explicit)

This is the final part of my Methodist Despair playlist.

Today I pull out Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson and Lily Allen.

I earned that “explicit” tag. Be warned.

“I’m Not That Guy” from Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson

When you have no one to show you what to do

How do you find your way?

When your country doesn’t have a place for you

How do you have your say?

How do you make them pay?

 

“Bastards” by Kesha

I got too many people I got left to prove wrong

All those motherfuckers been too mean for too long

And I’m so sick of crying

Darling, what’s it for?

I could fight forever, oh, but life’s too short

 

“Devil” by Tyler Glenn

As Sunday service got me anxious

It’s the reason that I was depressed

I could see it on their face

I did not deserve His grace

So I skipped the holy sacrament

I swear I still believe in something

But I couldn’t pray the gay away

So if I’m the wicked one

I’m still my mama’s son

And you’ll never take that love away

 

“Learn to Let Go” by Kesha

I think it’s time to practice what I preach

Exorcise the demons inside me

Whoa, gotta learn to let it go

The past can’t haunt me if I don’t let it

Live and learn and never forget it

Whoa, gotta learn to let it go

 

“White Flag” by Bishop Briggs

Patience is wearing thin, paper thin

Promises broke again, what a sin

But it only feeds my energy

So don’t expect no sympathy

 

“A Long December” by Counting Crows

And it’s been a long December and there’s reason to believe

Maybe this year will be better than the last

 

“One Foot” by WALK THE MOON

Oh, through the wilderness

How come even together there can be loneliness?

Oh, our heart’s a mess

But it’s our only defense to brave the wilderness

 

“The Show Must Go On” from Moulin Rouge

The show must go on

The show must go on

Inside my heart is breaking

My makeup may be flaking

But my smile still stays on

 

“Praying” by Kesha

‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell

I had to learn how to fight for myself

And we both know all the truth I could tell

I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”

I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’

I hope your soul is changin’, changin’

I hope you find your peace

Falling on your knees, prayin’

 

“Fuck You” by Lily Allen

Do you get

Do you get a little kick out of being small-minded?

You want to be like your father

It’s approval you’re after

Well, that’s not how you find it

Do you

Do you really enjoy living a life that’s so hateful?

‘Cause there’s a hole where your soul should be

You’re losing control a bit

And it’s really distasteful

 

“All the Way Down” by Glen Hansard

You have broken me all the way down

Down upon my knees

And you have broken me all the way now

You’ll be the last you’ll see
