I drink to remember, I smoke to forget
Some things to be proud of some stuff to regret
Run down some dark alleys in my own head
Something is changing, changing, changing

I go back to Clifton to see my old friends
The best people I could ever have met
Skin up a fat one, hide from the Feds
Something is changing, changing, changing

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
Light a cigarette and wish the world away
I got out, I got out, I’m alive but I’m here to stay
So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
I got out, I got out, I’m alive but I’m here to stay

He’s down in the kitchen drinking White Lightning
He’s with my momma, they’re yelling and fighting
It’s not the first time praying for silence
Something is changing, changing, changing

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
Light a cigarette and wish the world away
I got out, I got out, I’m alive but I’m here to stay
So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
I got out, I got out, I’m alive but I’m here to stay

There’s a story for every corner of this place
Running so hard you got out but your knees got grazed
I’m an old dog but I learned some new tricks yeah

So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
Light a cigarette and wish the world away
I got out I got out I’m alive but I’m here to stay
So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
I got out I got out I’m alive but I’m here to stay

Hey, hey it’s fine
Hey, hey it’s fine
Hey, hey it’s fine
I left it behind

12 KILLER ALBUMS OF 2012:

TOP 5

MUMFORD & SONS - BABEL
 

After their smash record ‘sign no more’,which caught indie folks listeners ears with
hit singles such as 'Little lion man’ 'winter winds’ and 'the cave’, fans were left dumbfounded yet weary of how on earth they could amaze the music scene anymore, and the answer was simple! More rhythm! more bass! and more..banjos?. 
The group really towered above their previous record with 'Babel’ with it's official lead single 'i will wait’ which gave us an early taste of Mumford’s bigger sound which still stayed true to those banjo’s that we all know and love. 
Babel debuted at number one domestically selling 159,000 copies and becoming the fastest selling album of 2012. The album also debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 selling 600,000 copies and as of December 2012 has sold 1,243,000 copies. 


PAUL SIMON - THE 25 ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF GRACELAND

Maybe one of the more bias choices within the pack but there comes a time when some albums are just too remarkable to give them the once over. 
completely deserving of it’s second run 'Graceland’ astonished hearers once again and gave opportunity for the younger audiences, such as myself, to acknowledge and understand the historical context of the album.
It goes without saying that 'Graceland’ is one of the most important and iconic albums of the last 100 years and i'm hopeful that we’ll see it again for it’s 50th anniversary. 


THE LUMINEERS - THE LUMINEERS 

I Bought this album solely on the highly acclaimed reviews i had stumbled upon and within an instant the album was gold! a complete diamond in the rust of the same synthesized, over played nescient song i had heard when gorging in the mainstream  music scene, much like Mumford and sons The Lumineers offer a folk twist on the indie music scene with enchanting vocals matching a rhythmical acoustic backing, -and ofcourse lets not forget those banjo’s!. 
The album is at it’s best when it combines the modern sensibilities of lead singer Wesley Schultz lyrics with high tempo rousing country sounds similar to that of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes – a considerable feet considering The Lumineers are a mere three piece as opposed to Edward Sharpe’s eleven.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - WRECKING BALL 

Having already made his name in the music industry from folk to rock and roll to soul Bruce Springsteen is the badass from new-jersey that we all know and love. 
There is so much to say about the unimaginable sense of incredibility this record oozes, but to cut to the chase as to why this album belongs in the list of greatest albums Bruce Springsteen’s 17th album is rock’s most pointed response to the Great Recession: a song suite explicitly for the 99 percent, as largehearted, and as righteously wrathful, as any album he’s made. Wrecking Ball rages at corporate oligarchy and economic injustice. “Gambling man rolls the dice, working man pays the bill/It’s still fat and easy up on banker’s hill,” he bellows in “Shackled and Drawn.”

BOB DYLAN - TEMPEST

'the voice of a generation’, 'the savor of a youth’, 'the folk king’ 'a role model for all singer/songwriters - the greatest lyricist of the 20th century’ .. bob dylan.
it’s no surprise anything that Dylan released was going to be beyond any thinkable greatness the human mind can concoct and was deserving of a place here, going back to his roots of poetry and rhyme but still giving us that subtle hit of electricity is the sound of the tempest. 
The album opens up with hit single 'duquesne whistle’ hits you with that rough brogue that we all know to be bob dylan which slams against the wall of soft jazz and swing that ties the song together melodically to create a form of juxtaposition similar to bob dylans very own 'like a rolling stone’ where dylan combined a harsh serenade to a girl to the track of an upbeat, optimistic melody. 
The most acclaimed and discussed is the albums closing track 'Roll on john’ which pays tribute to the Beatles very own John lennon in a way beyond imagine.
Not only is 'tempest’ one of the best albums of 2012, it’s an album that any music enthusiast needs in their collection.
