tell me to breathe
an ian reed fanmix



THIS HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING. most of the songs don't really flow together and they're all very different styles, but the lyrics are what i was really paying attention to. i have a lot of feelings about ian reed, and you can read some of them here. this mix might make more sense if you do. the two bonus songs at the end aren't officially on the mix because they only work in a onesided john/ian shipping context, which, unfortunately, is the context that makes the most sense to me.

THE (AFTER) LIFE OF THE PARTY fall out boy
her nose runs ruby red, death's in a double bed
singing songs that could only catch the ear of the desperate
cut it loose
watch you work the room


ALL THESE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE the killers
i wanna stand up, i wanna let go
you know, you know-- no you don't, you don't
i wanna shine on in the hearts of men
i want a meaning from the back of my broken hand [...]
you know you got to help me out
oh, don't you put me on the backburner
you know you got to help me out
you're gonna bring yourself down


THISTLE & WEEDS mumford & sons
the sky above us shoots to kill
rain down, rain down on me
but i will hold on, i will hold on hope
i begged you to hear me, there's more than flesh and bones
let the dead bury the dead, they will come out in droves
but take the spade from my hands and fill the holes you've made


INNOCENCE the airborne toxic event
well, i lost my innocence today
i can feel her in my bones [...]
and this from the window of my car,
she'll never see it, oh my god
i was so surprised, it blew up in my face
lord, i lost my nerve
oh my god


TWO AGAINST ONE dangermouse and daniele luppi
make no mistake, i don't do anything for free
i keep my enemies closer than my mirror ever gets to me
and if you think that there is shelter in this attitude
wait 'til you feel the warmth of my gratitude
i get the feeling that it's two against one
i'm already fighting me, so what's another one?


DEADBEAT HOLIDAY green day
philosophy's a liar when your home is your headstone
"icon" is the last chance for hope when there's no such thing as heroes
your faith lies in the ditch that you dug yourself in
last chance to piss it all away
nothing but hell to pay when the lights are going down
deadbeat holiday, celebrate your own decay
there's a vacant sign that hanging high on the noose over your home
oh, deadbeat holiday, get on your knees and pray
there's a vacant sign that's hanging high, but at least you're not alone


IN BETWEEN linkin park
let me apologize to begin with
let me apologize for what i'm about to say
but trying to be someone else was harder than it seemed
and somehow i got caught up in between [...]
fear is not afraid of you, but guilt's a language you can understand
i cannot explain to you anything i say or do
but hope the actions speak the works they can


MY SUNDOWN jimmy eat world
i see it around me, i see it in everything
i could be so much more than this
i said my goodbyes, this is my sundown
i'm gonna be so much more than this


bonus:

THE LITTLE THINGS GIVE YOU AWAY linkin park

don't want to reach for me, do you?
i mean nothing to you
the little things give you away
and now there will be no mistaking,
the levees are breaking
all you've ever wanted
was someone to truly look up to you
and six feet underwater, i do


I'VE GOT FRIENDS manchester orchestra
i can't play where i'm not supposed to anyway
dirty on the ground is what i see
i need another reason why i need another reason
tell me to breathe
the dirtier the sound, the best i breathe
i tried to do it all for you
it didn't do anything for me
