Mac Miller – Self Care lyrics

I could fly home, with my eyes closed
But it get kinda hard to see, that’s no surprise though
You can find me, I ain’t hiding
I don’t move my feet when I be gliding
I just slide in and then I roll out
[Verse 2]
I been reading them signs
I been losing my, I been losing my, I been losing my mind
Get the f*ck out the way, must be this high to play
It must be nice up above the lights, and what a lovely life that I made
I know that feelin’ like it’s in my family tree, yeah
That Mercedes drove me crazy, I was speeding’
Somebody save me from myself, yeah
Tell them they can take that bullsh*t elsewhere
Self care, we’re gonna be good
Hell yeah, they letting me go
[Chorus]
I switched the time zone, what do I know? Oblivion—yeah yeah
Oblivion—yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oblivion—yeah, yeah—Ooh
I got all the time in the world, so for now I’m just chilling
‘Cause I know it’s a, it’s a beautiful feeling
In oblivion yea yea
Oblivion yea yea, oblivion yea yea Spending nights hitch hiking, where will I go? I could fly home, with my eyes closed
But it get kinda hard to see, that’s no surprise though
You can find me, I ain’t hiding
I don’t move my feet when I be gliding
I just slide in and then I roll out
[Verse 1]
Yeah, well, climbing over that wall
I remember, yes, I remember, yes, I remember it all
Swear the height be too tall so like September I fall
Down below, they don’t know that the medicine be on call
It’s feeling like you hot enough to melt, yea
Can’t trust no one, can’t even trust yourself yea
I love you, I don’t love nobody else, yea
Tell them they can take that bullsh*t elsewhere
Self care, I’m treating me right
Hell yea, we’re gonna be alright
(We gone be alright)
[Chorus]
I switched the time zone, what do I know? I could fly home, with my eyes closed
But it get kinda hard to see, that’s no surprise though
You can find me, I ain’t hiding
I don’t move my feet when I be gliding
I just slide in and then I roll out
[Beat Switch]
[Verse 3]
I didn’t know, I didn’t know
I didn’t know, I didn’t know
Didn’t know what I was missing, now I see a lil’ different
I was thinking too much, got stuck in oblivion yea yea
Oblivion yea yea, oblivion yea yea
I got all the time in the world so for now I’m just chilling
‘Cause I know it’s a, it’s a beautiful feeling in oblivion yea yea
Oblivion yea yea, oblivion yea yea
I ride around my city when I come home
The sun set quickly then get up slow
I disconnect and upload
Watch it spin around, we just spin around
Let’s go and travel through the unknown
We play it cool we know we f*cked though
You keep on saying you in love so
Tell me are you really down, are you really down
Just go back to my crib and play some 45s
It’s safe in here, I know there’s still a war outside
We spend our nights all liquored up, our mornings high
Can you feel it now? [Intro]
Yea you got you got you got
Yea you got you yea
[Chorus]
I switched the time zone, what do I know? It’s safe in here I know there’s still a war outside
We spend our nights all liquored up on [?]
[Outro]
Can you feel it though? Spending nights hitch hiking, where will I go? Spending nights hitch hiking, where will I go?

Got me losing myself
And I can’t explain it
Got me losing myself
Mute the voices in my head, my head
[Pre-Chorus: Becky G]

Skimming stones, feels like the future is behind
And I’m gaining by myself

Halsey – Eastside lyrics

[Intro: Khalid]
Uh
Yeah, yeah
[Verse 1: Khalid]
When I was young, I fell in love
We used to hold hands, man, that was enough (yeah)
Then we grew up, started to touch
Used to kiss underneath the light on the back of the bus (yeah)
Oh no, your daddy didn’t like me much
And he didn’t believe me when I said you were the one
Oh, every day she found a way out of the window to sneak out late
[Chorus: Khalid]
She used to meet me on the Eastside
In the city where the sun don’t set
And every day you know that we ride
Through the backstreets of a blue Corvette
Baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
We can go anywhere we want
Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat
Just take my hand and come with me
[Post-Chorus: Khalid]
We can do anything if we put our minds to it
Take your whole life then you put a line through it
My love is yours if you’re willing to take it
Give me your heart ’cause I ain’t gonna break it
So come away, starting today
Start a new life, together in a different place
We know that love is how these ideas came to be
So baby, run away with me
[Verse 2: Halsey]
Seventeen and we got a dream to have a family
A house and everything in between
And then, oh, suddenly we turned twenty-three
Now we got pressure for taking our life more seriously
We got our dead-end jobs and got bills to pay
Have old friends and know our enemies
Now I-, I’m thinking back to when I was young
Back to the day when I was falling in love
[Chorus: Halsey]
He used to meet me on the Eastside
In the city where the sun don’t set
And every day you know where we ride
Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette
And baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
We can go anywhere we want
Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat
Just take my hand and come with me
Singing
[Post-Chorus: Halsey & Khalid]
We can do anything if we put our minds to it
Take your whole life then you put a line through it
My love is yours if you’re willing to take it
Give me your heart ’cause I ain’t gonna break it
So come away, starting today
Start a new life, together in a different place
We know that love is how these ideas came to be
So baby, run away with me
[Bridge: Halsey & Khalid]
Run away, now
Run away, now
Run away, now
Run away, now
Run away, now
Run away, now
[Outro: Halsey & Khalid]
He used to meet me on the Eastside
She used to meet me on the Eastside
He used to meet me on the Eastside
She used to meet me on the Eastside
In the city where the sun don’t set

Panic! at the Disco – Titanium Lyrics

You shout it out
But I can’t hear a word you say
I’m talking loud not saying much
I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up
[Chorus:]
I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
Cut me down
But it’s you who’ll have further to fall
Ghost town and haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I’m talking loud not saying much
[Chorus:]
I’m bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
I am titanium
I am titanium
Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard as bulletproof glass
[Chorus:]
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall

Saving Spike’s go-to bikes from the scrapheap

World's oldest-known message in a bottle found on WA beach after 132 years

(ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
It was the fluorescent yellow bicycle Mr Evans rode for 24 hours to set a record at Midvale Velodrome in 1994; it had survived, dusty but intact, in Jones’s shed.Mr West began a register of Spike’s bikes, recording not only where they were but the story of how and why they came to be made.He gives each owner he finds a plaque and collects their details and pictures of the bike, hoping to inspire the owner to keep and treasure their Jonesy.While many of the bikes are not particularly old, they are unique and tell a story of Western Australia’s cycling history.

Milton ‘Spike’ Jones was famous among Perth cyclists for his custom-made frames. They are also objects of fine craftsmanship. Photo:

“By getting a custom bike you essentially get a bike that he’s made precisely to your dimensions to function as well as possible for the environment that you want to race in.”So the cycling cognoscenti would like say, OK, I need a custom-built frame, so they would go to Spike and he would measure them up.”In his little factory over in Willagee he would eventually construct the frame; often it would take a lot of meetings with people only because he was such a magnificent storyteller.”He was notorious for not being the fastest of frame builders and he used to spray them as well so some of them may have taken a couple of weeks, and I imagine some probably even a few months.”He would do beautiful lugwork, absolutely no filing marks, incredible attention to detail.”Jones did not just make racing bikes, he also made children’s tricycles, tandem bikes and three unusual miniatures, one of which is now held by the West Australian Museum. Photo:
Frank West gives each MH Jones bike owner he finds a plaque and adds it to the register. Frank West had been an enthusiastic cyclist for decades when he found an ad online that seemed to fit the bill for an old bike frame stripped of its markings that he could restore as a project.”I rang and the seller said, ‘It’s a magnificent little frame by a guy called Milton Jones; my dad had this frame especially built by Milton’,” Mr West said.”He said, ‘I’d like this frame to stay in WA — if you come down tonight you can have it’.”Mr West bought the frame and his interest in knowing more about Milton Jones, who died in 2013, was piqued. Photo:

“There were a lot of bikes for charity, including three-wheeled bikes for people with multiple sclerosis, a tandem bike that was taken to Europe where it broke a record for a visually impaired rider,” Mr West said.Although he has been tracking down owners for several years, on Saturday Mr West will host the largest ever gathering of Milton Jones bikes and their riders.It’s an event he is both excited and anxious about and is hoping he might find the 50th Jonesy to add to the register.”These current bikes will one day be of historical interest,” he said.”I’m in a position to follow up with some of the cyclists and get some of the stories direct from people’s mouths about the building of the bikes and who they raced with.””This really is just a very pleasurable pastime.”Details of the MH Jones register and open day can be found at the WA Historical Cycle Club website. “She was really good to me and helpful,” he said.”And she said, ‘You know, I’ve still got Rod’s bike in the shed’.”

“I looked online and the only article I could find was an obituary by his wife Mavis,” he said.”In that article she hinted that quite a number of state representatives had ridden his bikes and there was a chap called Rod Evans who broke a number of Australian and world records on his bikes.”Finding ‘Spike’ JonesMr West tracked down Mavis Jones and Rod Evans and learned what he could about the man who had made his bike.”Milton Jones started in the bike industry about the mid-1940s as a young man,” he said.After working in several bike shops, in 1956 Jones opened his own — Super Sports Cycles in North Perth.He later moved into working in motor and marine engines, but continued making bicycles in his shed at home under the names MH Jones or Capo.”He was well known among the cycling fraternity to the point where at major races, if a rider rocked up on a new Milton Jones bike, the call went out, ‘you’ve got yourself a Jonesy’.”But Mr West also discovered that Spike’s bikes were disappearing and set out to find and record the frames that survived. “He told me he had put one out on the verge, which was the bike that he used to be the first Australian to cross Australia on, that got picked up and that’s gone,” he said.Mr West spent 12 months restoring the frame he had bought then took it to show Mrs Jones.

Mr Evans, who broke six world cycling records between 1989 and 1994, told Mr West he still had some of his Milton Jones bicycles.

Bakers revive ancient grains and heritage wheat for a tastier bread

Landline

Following the “paddock to plate” model, two bakers decided to grow heritage wheat — so they can make better “dough”. (Landline: Tony Hill)

In the meantime the old world grains are making modern farming and baking a lot more interesting.”We keep finding out about more interesting ones that perhaps we might request,” Ms Salkeld said.”It’s pretty hard to stop actually. In the middle of a vineyard at Langhorne Creek in South Australia is an unusual sight in a territory known for its red wine — a patch of unfamiliar mixed grains.The trial plot is home to 15 varieties of old wheat and ancient grains.It was planted by local bakers Emily Salkeld and Chris Duffy, who are on a mission to add more flavour to bread.”We were interested to see whether there was something that could perform really well in our fields, but we could bring it into the bakery and see what kind of wildness can be there in those flavours,” Ms Salkeld said. (Landline: Kerry Staight)
“We couldn’t work out why that was, but they flattened a couple.”After starting with just 100 seeds of each variety, the couple hopes to have enough to start adding a bit of heritage to their commercial loaves in 2020. (Landline: Tony Hill)
While fungal diseases knocked yields about, the pair was happy with the amount of quality grain they harvested even with a last-minute invasion from unexpected trespassers.”We accommodated a family of kangaroos … in one of the varieties,” the bakers said. Photo:
Ms Salkeld and Mr Duffy sow more heritage grain each year. (Landline: Kerry Staight)
The former cheesemaker set up Small World Bakery with Mr Duffy, a qualified viticulturalist, about a decade ago. It was released in 1901 and helped establish Australia as a significant grain producer.”The first seed breeder that really gained national acclaim was William Farrer and he was the one that bred Federation Wheat,” Ms Salkeld said.”He was a really innovative farmer that worked in the late 1800s to try to find wheats that would be more resilient to the Australian climate.”While flavour rather than yield is the focus of their cropping program, the grains still have to be hardy enough to make it worthwhile.A wetter than normal spring last year tested the less disease-resistant old varieties, with stem rust setting in.”It’s very easy to understand why they’re scarce,” Mr Duffy said.”They’re difficult to grow, they’re certainly not as robust in many aspects compared to more modern wheat varieties and they’re much harder to process.”But at the end of all of that you can have something that’s pretty special.”

In 2014 the sourdough specialists decided to take the next step and produce some of their own ingredients, after sampling freshly milled flour and bread made out of older grains that were hard to come by but full of flavour.”To be honest I’d never thought that wheat could have an identity,” Ms Salkeld said.”I think that was something that was a bit of a bombshell for me.”Think of spices and nuts and grass and hay, some fruit characteristics sometimes.”

They recently sowed an area that’s 15 times larger than what they planted last year after leasing land from local farmer James Stacey.”I could use this paddock to grow wheat to try and compete with the Russians and the Ukrainians,” Mr Stacey said.”But I can make more money out of leasing it to these guys to grow their old varieties to sell into a premium market.”

The couple is surprised but pleased to see several other farmers also showing an interest in their project.”I think there’s room for all scales and all sizes of agricultural production systems,” Mr Duffy said.”And this might be one way on a smaller scale and within a local community that you can get viable crop alternatives for people on less land or perhaps higher value land.”Reviving the past is unlikely to return a big profit for the bakers in the short term, but Mr Duffy believes their investment will pay off down the track. It’s pretty addictive.”This story will be on Landline at 12:30pm on Sunday Photo:

Ms Salkeld uses ancient techniques and heritage grains to offer a product aiming at taste rather than output. (Landline: Kerry Staight)
The couple planted just under half and have since narrowed the shortlist down to 15 varieties, including grains from North America, the Middle East and Europe.The global mix features several red wheats which Ms Salkeld says aren’t favoured in the Australian baking industry, but have a stronger flavour.Looking back to look forward — looking forward to look back

Federation Wheat One of the first crops planted by colonists, wheat became Australia’s most important crop even though early harvests were poor.William Farrer experimented with crossbreeding wheats and produced a black-stem rust and drought resistant variety called Federation wheat. (Landline: Kerry Staight)
“If you want to make money in baking — make doughnuts filled with Nutella,” he said.”That’s what makes money, but that’s not really what we’re about.””There’s no doubt that we’re supporting it right now, but I’m confident enough that there’s a future.”

Photo:
In order to make good dough it is best to knead with your hands until the dough is smooth and combined. The iconic Australian variety Federation Wheat has also made the cut. (Landline: Tony Hill)
The pair sourced their older varieties from the Australian Grains Genebank at Horsham in Victoria, a collection of 140,000 different types of seeds.It supplied small packets of about 80 possible starters including Einkorn, Emmer and Khorasan, which Ms Salkeld says are basically the parents of modern wheat.

“I finished up teaching photography at the TAFE, so I have such respect and admiration and appreciation for your father and the time I spent with you,” Mr Franks said.”It’s so long ago. I was flabbergasted to hear about this yesterday because I could not recall or remember it, it was that long ago.”Mr Adamson: “Well, it was a big moment in my life and I wouldn’t have had one if it hadn’t been for you.”Mr Franks: “That’s amazing, and the strange thing is I was rescued by a taxi driver in London when I fell in the canal when I was a little bit younger than you. Another young boy called Arthur Franks jumped in to save him. Lucky for him, he wasn’t alone that day. It happened to me too. Photo:

It’s amazing.”Mr Franks said a friend who’d heard the story on the radio called him that night but it took him a while to connect the dots. “At first I had no idea who Ed was,” Mr Franks said.”But when I rang the ABC and the woman mentioned … I have a couple of memories of it and they’re the outstanding ones.”The pair have agreed to meet in person so they can share more tales from their eventful childhood summers.They’re both grateful to the power of the airwaves for reconnecting them.”I’m really amazed at the whole thing,” Mr Franks said. that it was the foot of Mt Buller, I thought, ‘Right, that must be Edwin Adamson’. They spent a couple of Christmases with us, I can’t remember how many, but I’d love to be in touch with him again.”

More than six decades later the pair had lost touch, until Mr Adamson put the call out on ABC Radio to find him.”My mum thought I needed company for the school holidays and so she used to invite Arthur and sometimes another friend of his to come from St John’s Boys Home,” he said.”He was one of those English kids who came out for a better life in Australia … (Supplied: Edwin Adamson)
It took less than 24 hours before Mr Franks phoned in and the pair were reunited on air.It was apparent that the standout memories they each had from that summer were incredibly different.Here’s how it went down:Mr Franks: “Hello Ed, what a surprise. It rang a bell.”While Mr Franks did not remember his friend’s near drowning — it has been close to 70 years after all — there was something else that happened on his visit to the farm that summer which did leave a lasting impression.”I have such great memories of your father because he gave me my first watercolour box with paints,” Mr Franks said. “I continued my interest in art and I became an art teacher.”Mr Adamson’s father was a well-known photographer in Melbourne which also influenced the career choice of the boy he invited to share Christmas with his family.

Ed Adamson was only about 11 years old when a fleeting moment nearly ended his young life. It was probably cold if I remember rightly,” Mr Adamson told ABC Radio’s Alan Brough.”I wasn’t intending to swim but I ended up sinking instead of swimming.”I can remember looking down the long dark tunnel, with the tiny speck of light at the end of the tunnel. While floating in a small boat around the dam on his family’s farm in Victoria’s High Country, he fell into the water and nearly drowned.”I had heavy boots on, gumboots and jodhpurs I think. I think it was a near-death experience.”
