Phlebia

You know the sky is falling, clouds are calling, watching you
We build a network connecting the nodes, as the wind blows it all away
A tenuous connection between contemporary minds, so disappointed
I stand in the gateway you greet me and I must communicate that the password is

(Blank blank blank blank blank)
Can't get into you, I assume you're so endlessly complicated
(Blank blank blank blank blank)
And I'd have to forget you, every one hundred and eighty days
(Blank blank blank blank blank)
If only I knew, i'd never assume that it was so simple
(Blank blank blank blank blank)
To press your enter key and pass right through you

We synergize together, observe the weather, deception forever
How can I prove to you that I am the one you've always wanted?
For far too long I've hustled, trying to reach the root of all things.
Someday I'll turn around you'll tell me all along that the password is

(Blank blank blank blank blank)
Can't get into you, I assume you're so endlessly complicated
(Blank blank blank blank blank)
And I'd have to forget you, every one hundred and eighty days
(Blank blank blank blank blank)
If only I knew, i'd never assume that it was so simple
(Blank blank blank blank blank)
To press your enter key and pass right through you

Third Cat - The Password is Love

password is love
only way you're climbing above
all those sad old tales
you're always thinking of

password is love
only way you're climbing above
all those sad old tales

I'm stuck in a spin
no matter what I do
can't make my way in
so maybe I need to
forget all I knew
just be here with ...

The Password Is ______
Levenhagen-Sommersmith

There’s a new world that I’m dreaming of
No rich and no poor, no below or above
To get to this new world it isn’t so tough
Just knock on that glass door
And give them the password
You know what the password is
The password is ______

There’s a new world that I’m dreaming of
Where no one is wanting, where all have enough
And justice and mercy fit like hand in glove
And they’ll let us in faster
If we say the password
You know what the password is
The password is ______

There’s a new world that I’m dreaming of
It’s balanced just so on the wings of a dove
Maybe we’ll get there when push comes to shove
If we stop being assholes
And just say the password
You know what the password is
The password is ______

Micah Sommersmith - piano, voice
Jennifer Levenhagen - violin
"you did a skillful job pulling off the sexy" - RangerDenni

The Password Is
by JB

NOTE: If it's interesting to you at all, I used a lyric generator to create the basic idea of these lyrics. I entered keywords that were kind of in the password vein, then I edited the result to be a little more relevant to the idea of passwords as a metaphor. Or something. This is the generator I used: http://www.songlyricsgenerator.com/ (I dunno what technique they use to generate-- some of the lines sound written to me more than generated, but I didn't dig into it.)

Verse One:
I'm pretty sure it's not worth the effort
Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in
You were the best I ever had
Think of what we could have had

Chorus:
I figured you out without a clue
Crying over you
Short and simple and perfect
But maybe we’re too young to keep good love from going wrong

Verse Two:
You were the end, a love to last forever
Unguessable, still easy to remember
(Why?) Why do we bother
What’s one more special character
blippity blop ya don’t stop heyyyyyyyyy

gizo - the password is

[in which our hero spends another evening contemplating endings and beginnings]

when the sun rises on your face
see the lines of your ageing
and the signs that your happiness is fading

fall from grace

when the race has been run
you are tired and you’re weeping
and the password is no longer yours for keeping

face your son
let him know that it's over
he's the alpha now so let him start his motor

You wanted answers

Overcompensating egos
A good name is important
We've all become informants

You wanted answers

You wanted passwords

Overreaching, overfunded.
But your conscious is distorted,
And our heros are deported

Hey, what's the password?

Megadank Vs. The Bloke Explosion

The password is **** no one made you make it
It's just a key you can leave or take it
Don't use it to insulate your pension
Or attempt to alleviate the tension
Cos you know the one for that procedure's vacant
Don't fake if you don't want it to be taken
Tapping in your pin with your nimble fingers
Getting cash to pay the man for what he'll bring us
Type your number in the lock screen of your phone
Do it backwards gain access to the private zone
Put the safe word in the secret channel
Follow up the numbers from the combination panel

This is the code that will let you download
Copyrighted data from illegal nodes
Don't change it to the same as your email
Or the name of your favourite female
Following your blog about the food that you swallowed
I learned where you live who you're meeting on the 'morrow
I have purview over covert information
And administrator rights to your workstation
Remember not to use your favourite number
Cos we know it 69 and it's tattooed on your thumb
Set your data free, send your Bitcoin all to me
And if you're really lucky then I might give you the key

The password is (honk)
The password is (squirt)
The password is strong than willpower
But weaker than me
The password is (bloop)
The password is (groan)
The password is whatever you want
And I heard it in a song
And I really really really wanna...

The password is in my pocket
I’ll unlock it, you can’t make me stop it
On a mission, gone phishin
And now I’ll allow all the bots out like shooting fish in a barrel
First stop; bank account, take your money out
The cypher will siphon all of the fivers
Into my private silos
Complain in a tweet, I don’t give a sheeeeet
More discrete than a camouflaged chameleon
I fade to the background, I don’t have feelings
And while you dealing with the mess that I made
A plan gestates, I wait in the shade
Gonna formulate another plan to make
You put Sellotape over your lens
Or I’ll watch you masturbate and show all of your friends
Can you afford a handsome reward
A kings ransom when you fall on your pork sword
I’m a dark lord with eyes in every house
You can get an Echo and Kinect to help me out
Even Eric Arthur didn’t predict the camera yajna
With just one click the video’s playing
Day upon day and
Does anyone really know the price that were paying?

The password is (swoosh)
The password is (squelch)
The password is strong than willpower
But weaker than me
The password is (onomatopoeia)
The password is (insert noise here)
The password is whatever you want
And I heard it in a song
And I really really really wanna...

The Password Is _ - Paco del Stinko

There ain't no secret handshake to get into the room
Or a hidden passage that appears in the full moon
All you gotta do is (please tell me) know the secret word
And if you don't know what it is I guess you ain't never heard

The password is (shh) oh yeah
The password is (shh) oh yeah
The password is (shh) oh yeah
And that's just what it is


You don't need no skeleton key to unlock a back door
Or move a scuzzy rug aside and walk down throught the floor
All you gotta do is know just what to say
And if you don't know what that is I guess you'd better pray

Some people were born to know it
Other folks try and then they blow it
And once upon a time almost everyone knew
But now it's just a handful or two (a priviledged few)
Well I know it do you


You don't need to know no-one like JB or a Spud
And even if you do well, that trick is just a dud
All you gotta do is utter the right phrase
And if you don't know what it is I guess you've seen better days

(what it is, is what it is x4)
It ain't never gonna change 'cos that's just what it is
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

The Password Is _________
miscellaneous owl


Your name, always and ever your name
Your name, now and forever, your name
From the moment we met, my soul has been etched with your name
Numbers pour over its face but it still looks the same
I love you, now and forever, and that always will remain

And if they want to guess, then let them, let them
I'll make a new language from the light that I drink from your eyes
And if they want to guess, then let them, let them
We'll pick out new words like lilies that live for a day, like mayflies
Like snowflakes that melt into water after their brief and perfect flight

Your name, always and ever your name
Your name, now and forever, your name
Who are we but creatures who crawl in the dark towards a voice?
We love but a while and cling to our tenuous joys
Till we change out our flowers for flames and trade our flickering signal for noise

You're my key to the room with no doors
And we enter the maze on all fours
Letters swim over the screen, and as if in a dream,
We pick out the crosswalks from buildings and cars from the street
We know we're not robots cause robots can't feel
Like the velveteen rabbit, your love makes me real
Makes me real

And if they want to guess, then let them, let them
I'll make a new language from the light that I drink from your eyes
And if they want to guess, then let them, let them
We'll pick out new words like lilies that live for a day, like mayflies
Like snowflakes that melt into water after their brief and perfect flight
We'll pull apart our petals as we fall into the night

I’ve tried everything I can think of
To get you to open your arms and your heart to me

I did your dishes and your laundry
Laid myself bare; shared with you all of my debris

What damn button am I missing?
What unchecked box? Where the hell have you put your key?

Maybe you’ve got a secret password
That unlocks your heart; please tell me what it might be
Please tell me

What the password is
What the password is
What the password is
Cuz I don’t know

Don’t really know what you want me to do
Maybe it’s time for me to go

I can’t read your mind
Can’t read your mind
Can’t read your mind

I’m getting tired of your nonsense
There’s no reason why you can’t be fucking straight with me

I’m done trying to decipher
Your inconsistent personality

I’m moving on
I’m afraid our love is gone
I have no doubt
I’m done trying to figure out
To figure out

What the password is
What the password is
What the password is
Cuz I don’t care

Don’t really care what you want me to do
It’s way past time for me to go

I can’t read your mind
Can’t read your mind
Can’t read your mind
And now it seems to me the beautiful uncut hair of graves -Walt Whitman

The Password Is
Berkeley Social Scene

Did they catch you by the toe
Make you holler before letting go
Did they slip something in your drink
Dropping you in a fog with no way to think

Think for a minute
Can you remember all things you might have said
A situation that you seemed to have misread

Did they slither up from far away
Promising their endless love till their dying day
Were you promised some great reward
Riches, fame, glory - All that could be yours

Think for a minute
Can you remember all things you might have said
A situation that you seemed to have misread
Think for a minute
Can you imagine all the damage could be done
Do you want to see what will befall everyone

Did you tell them what the password is

The password is _____ — Hot Pink Halo

***

I found a handful of emails
Inside my junk folder
Trying to extract some cash
They said "we know your secrets
And the password is ours
So pay up, pay up
And we'll give you your account back"
But they didn't realise that
Password was past its prime
And all it did was send me
Backwards in time
To see you

Run Henry Run Henry Run Henry Run
I can picture you clearly
Playing out in the sunshine
So Run Henry Run Henry Run Henry
Run Henry Mine

We went to North Melbourne
With Stella in tow
She had two years under her belt
We walked her past the cages and
She hated them all until you
Came out, came out
And made all our hearts melt
You were eight weeks old and
Your name was a number
We all fell in love and took you
Right under our wings and then home
Where you'd

Run Henry Run Henry Run Henry Run
I can picture you clearly
Playing out in the sunshine
So Run Henry Run Henry Run Henry
Run Henry Mine

When you were small you had
Eyes like saucers
Encircled with spectacle rings
Your favourite things were
Sneaking onto the bed
TPing the backyard
And when ambos went by you would sing
It's been eleven years now
Since we were parted
And while it's true you're no longer my password
You're still the key to my heart

So Run Henry Run Henry Run Henry Run
I can picture you clearly
Playing out in the sunshine
So Run Henry Run Henry Run Henry
Run Henry Mine

The Password Is ____________


4321

She left me high and dry, with nothing but questions why
I searched all around the flat, looking for reasons & facts
On the nightstand I found her computer, and I typed and just as I remember…

The password is... 4 3 2 1

And the world to her soul opened up
And I saw what she saw was enough
To make her jump into the void
As though her whole life had been destroyed (repeat x3)


I went to her browser history, to solve what clearly was a mystery
She jumped on a bus to Vancouver, she’d become a true believer
found her phone by the TV, tapped on the screen and it asked me…

The password is… 4 3 2 1

And the world to her soul opened up
And I saw what she saw was enough
To make her jump into the void
as though her whole life had been destroyed (repeat x3)

-Her playlist was full of all pink floyd
-and I’m sure her parents were super annoyed
-but she was gone and I was overjoyed

I was sad for her, but I was happy for me.
