Music in motion

I was listening to Motion City Soundtrack’s latest album, My Dinosaur Life, on the way to work today and loving it – it gave me more energy than the coffee I was drinking! I also really liked the lyrics to the second track,  Lifeless Ordinary (Need a Little Help) :

Filling up on endless insights
From other people’s ugly insides.
All this bitterness is starting to grow cold

When comfort is an empty evening
Hanging on to complications.
Sometimes quick sand has a massive appeal to me

I want to be somewhere else

I think I can figure it out,
But I’m gonna need a little help to get me
Need a little help to get me.
I think I can figure it out,
But I’m gonna need a little help to get me through it
To get me through it

(from plyrics.com)

I guess the chorus was especially appealing to me right now… It just brought home how the right words at the right (or wrong) time can lift your spirits, even if just for the length of a song.
