One of the nice things about having a new fandom is old songs you've listened and loved a million times become new again. For once, the lyrics are under the cut because I relate them to UNDERTALE SPOILERS

Hint: it involves Nine Inch Nails )

James, come on home
You've been gone too long, baby
We can't let our hero die alone

We miss you day and night
You left town to live by the rifle
You left us to fight
But it just ain't right to take away the light!

Remember Genie from the casino?
She's still a-waiting in that big brass bed
The boys from your gang are knocking whisky back
'Til they get out of hand and wish they were dead
They're only lonely for the life that they led with their old friend

Ooh, James, are you selling your soul to a cold gun?

Where lies your heart?
It's not there in the buckskin, baby
It's not there in the gin
That makes you laugh long and loud

You're a coward, James
You're running away from humanity
You're running out on reality
It won't be funny when they rat-a-tat-tat you down!

Remember Genie from the casino?

You ever have those songs that you've listened to for years, then when you go revisit them, you think, "O SNAP IT'S SO-AND-SO'S THEME SONG"? 'Cause I got that moment when I checked out Meryl Streep's take on "Stay With Me" from Into the Woods.

The main villain of the novel I'm working on is a nutcracker named Dr. Medlock. He's kidnapped one of the main characters, Raggedy Ann, and is holding her hostage while using her candy heart for an experiment he's working on. Said experiment is him trying to bring his lost daughter back to life; a ballerina doll named Clara that he took under his care until the day she disappeared in a fire reminiscent of the one from "The Steadfast Tin Soldier." Basically, he parallels Johnny Gruelle (creator of Raggedy Ann & Andy) and his grief over losing his daughter Marcella... except Dr. Medlock is a hell of a lot more psychotic and abusive. In spite of the verbal beatings, manipulation and punishment he administers, he develops a bizarre attachment to Ann as though she were Clara herself...

What did I clearly say?
Children must listen!

What were you not to do?
Children must see and learn...

Why could you not obey?
Children should listen!
What have I been to you?
What would you have me be?
Handsome like a Prince?

Ah, but I am old
I am ugly
I embarrass you!

You are ashamed of me
You are ashamed

You don't understand...

Don't you know what's out there in the world?
Someone has to shield you from the world
Stay with me

Princes wait there in the world, it's true
Princes, yes, but wolves and humans, too
Stay at home
I am home
Who out there could love you more than I?
What out there that I cannot supply?
Stay with me

Stay with me
The world is dark and wild
Stay a child while you can be a child
With me...

It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song
You can't believe it, you were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember, you try to feel the beat

You spend half of your life trying to fall behind
You're using your headphones to drown out your mind
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember, you try to move your feet

Someone's deciding whether or not to steal
He opens a window just to feel the chill
He hears that outside a small boy just started to cry
'Cause it's his turn, but his brother won't let him try

It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song
You can't believe it, you were always singing along
It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember, you try to move your feet

It was so easy and the words so sweet
You can't remember, you try to feel the beat

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation
And it looks like I'm the queen

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I've tried

Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway

It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I'm free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry
Here I stand and here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back, the past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand in the light of day
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway


~Let It Go~

I'm not sorry to see 2013 go. It's been a horrible year for writing overall; I barely got anything done on my novel at all, and even fanfic drabbles this year were about as much as a trickle. I was just swamped in depression, family drama, and I barely got to do much of anything at all. About the only good thing to come out of this year was getting my 4.0 grade average back after returning college. I just hope I'll be able to keep this up for the next semesters.

I've got so much to catch up on. I hope I don't end up wasting 2014. Time is precious and you don't know what you've got until it's gone.

But I can't confront the doubts I have
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I condemn the future to death so it could match the past


I want to do the exact opposite of that. Things are going to change. Starting midnight.

Love, hold my hand
Help me see with the dawn
That those that have left are not gone
But they carry on as stars looking down
As Nature's Sons and Daughters of the Heavens

You will not ever be forgotten by me
In the precession of the mighty stars
Your name is sung and tattooed now on my heart
Here I will carry, carry, carry you

Forever

You have touched my life
So that now cathedrals of sound are singing, are singing
The waves have come to walk with you
To where you will live in the Land of Youth
Land of Youth

You will not ever be forgotten by me
In the precession of the mighty stars
Your name is sung and tattooed now on my heart
Here I will carry, carry, carry you
Here I will carry, carry, carry you

Forever

You've been acting awful tough lately
Smoking a lot of cigarettes lately
But inside, you're just a little baby
It's okay to say you've got a weak spot
You don't always have to be on top
Better to be hated than love, love, loved for what you're not

You're vulnerable, you're vulnerable
You are not a robot
You're loveable, so loveable
But you're just troubled

Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot
Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot

You've been hanging with the unloved kids
Who you never really liked and you never trusted
But you are so magnetic, you pick up all the pins
Never committing to anything
You don't pick up the phone when it ring, ring, rings
Don't be so pathetic, just open up and sing

I'm vulnerable, I'm vulnerable
I am not a robot
You're loveable, so loveable
But you're just troubled

Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot
Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot

Can you teach me how to feel real?
Can you turn my power on?
Well, let the drum beat drop

Guess what? I'm not a robot
Guess what? I'm not a robot

Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot
Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot
Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot
Guess what? I'm not a robot, a robot

So I want to kill this waitress
She's worked here a year longer than I
If I did it fast, you know that's an act of kindness

But I believe in peace
I believe in peace, bitch!
I believe in peace
I believe in peace!

But I believe in peace
I believe in peace, bitch!
I believe in peace!

I want to kill this waitress
I can't believe this violence in mind
And is her power all in her club sandwich?

But I believe in peace
I believe in peace, bitch!
I believe in peace
I believe in peace!

But I believe in peace
I believe in peace, bitch!
I believe in peace!

I want to kill this killing wish
They're too many stars and not enough sky
Boys all think she's living kindness (heh)
Ask a fellow waitress
Ask a fellow waitress...


~The Waitress~
~Tori Amos~


I relate to this song too well, and I'll tell you why. I hero-worshiped several fandom BNFs, but I was also intimidated by them. But yay! I got to be friends with them! Only for them to turn out to be humongous jerks. Usually there was no way I could directly talk to them, unless it was through LJ comments or something. I was always baffled as to how many close friends these BNFs had, especially when said friends gushed about what nice and mature people they were when to me they were anything but. I kept my mouth shut, yearning to speak my mind even if it meant a blow-up between us. The more I thought about what I wanted to say to the BNFs who were my "friends", the angrier and angrier I'd get.

And I know it's wrong. I know it's wrong to bottle anger, I know it's wrong to be consumed by so much rage by someone for the pettiest reasons, it's wrong for me to be wasting my time on it. It drains me and makes me feel horrible, and I wish all that pent-up anger and grudges would go away, so I can focus the things I love and that make me happy, but it haunts me and I hate it. Hence the "I believe in peace, bitch!", "I can't believe this violence in mind" and "I want to kill this killing wish" lines. The BNFs may or may not be horrible people, and admittedly I was extremely spiteful toward a few of them for the stupidest, shallowest reasons, but this crippling bitterness is a feeling that I desperately wished would go away. And no song better expresses that than "The Waitress."

here_inmyhead: Raggedy Ann as animated in "Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure." (1977) (Jelly Jane :: Fuck Yeah!)
Remember when I said I was trying to look for the Broadway soundtrack of the flopped Raggedy Ann musical? I got some good (bad?) news! The guy who played some songs for me on Livestream uploaded them all for download!

The zip includes the demo and "official" versions. I haven't listened to the entire thing yet (I'll traumatize myself another day), but I jumped to "Rag Dolly" 'cause that was the one I was most curious about. The musical only shares two songs from the movie, "Blue" and "Rag Dolly." The latter has different lyrics, so you end up having three (four if you count the awful "Disco Dolly") versions of the same song.

"Rag Dolly" in the movie is cute, but it worked better as an instrumental. It doesn't tell us anything new about Raggedy Ann (whose character was already established through "I Look (And What Do I See?")) and it didn't do anything to advance the plot except for the Captain trying to fix his spyglass, and his sneeze fit interruptions were annoying. Broadway!"Rag Dolly" on the other hand? It's about a sad and lonely Raggedy Ann questioning her worth as a toy. No kidding.

The version I'm sharing the lyrics for is the demo, which had an intro that got snipped from the final version. I uploaded the song as a single Mp3 so you don't have to wait forever on the zip. Feel free to correct me on lyrics, nom. Behold! Raggedy Ann at her low point while stuck in Dr. Medlock's lab. :o

I'm just a ragdolly... )

I feel like an egotistical prat whenever I make stuff involving my own characters, including icons. Which is something I need to get over. Ugh.

I'm still feeling down, so have a song related to the character instead.

(It is this that brings us together)
(It is this that brings us together)

It's all right, darling
We can do this together
It's all right, darling
I can think of nothing better

I don't know you
And you don't know me
It is this that brings us together

I don't know what you are looking for in me
But I don't know what I want
But my heart is needing

Am I yours? Are you mine?
We'll find all we're meant to find
In your life, in my life
There are secrets too dark
To let out, to let go of
To get over

But that's all right, baby
That's all right by me
It's all right now

(Just let me say)
Please
Please
Please
Please be kind to my mistakes

Be kind
Be kind to me

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
I knew that somehow, I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

Pray God you can cope
I stand outside this woman's work
This woman's world
Ooh, it's hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the father

I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things I should've said that I never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things I should've given, but I didn't

Oh, darling, make it go
Make it go away

Give me these moments back
Give them back to me
Give me that little kiss
Give me your hand

(I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left
I know you have a little life in you yet
I know you have a lot of strength left)

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things we should've said that were never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things that you needed from me
All the things that you wanted for me
All the things that I should've given, but I didn't

Oh, darling, make it go away
Just make it go away now

So during my quest of Raggedy Ann & Andy research, I discovered this song sung by Liza Minnelli. I couldn't find the lyrics to the song anywhere, so I interpreted it the best I can. I'm poor at making out lyrics... anyone please help me out with a couple lines?

Here's a nice charming little Christmas song about two ragdolls... oh yeah, one of them ends up lonely for the rest of her life. )

This song makes me *baaaaaaaaaaw*. It starts off sweet and nostalgic, then it slaps you with a sad ending. Best way to describe it: FOREVER ALONE.gif.

...Uh. On a lighter note, Geno figurine. DO WANT. Except it's $75.00 and expensive. *sob*

This scene from Alice is even sadder than I remembered.

I give myself very good advice
But I very seldom follow it
That explains the trouble that I'm always in
"Be Patient," is very good advice
But the waiting makes me curious
And I'd love the change
Should something strange begin

Well, I went along my merry way
And I never stopped to reason
I should have known there'd be a price to pay
Some day, some day

I give myself very good advice
But I very seldom follow it
Will I ever learn to do the things I should?

Will I ever learn, learn to do the things I should?


Don't mind me. I just wanted to update my journal with something other than "I feel miserable, so I'm going to shut up for a while" nonsense.

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell?
Blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cold breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here
