Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Oh No!


A Week of Marina (Day 6 of 7)

I've posted songs by Marina and the Diamonds before. Visit her official website here:

"I Am Not A Robot"

October 23, 2011:
Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Are You Satisfied?
"Are You Satisfied?" and "Obsessions"

Those three songs are her best, in my opinion. But I've been listening to her album "The Family Jewels" a lot lately and think there are a lot of good songs on it. Not only that, but the whole album does a decent job of capturing how I feel lately.

So ... I'm doing a Week of Marina this week. Read what you want into my song choices.


Sixth song, posted on YouTube by Barney4000:
"Marina & the Diamonds - Oh No! [WITH LYRICS]"

Don't do love, don't do friends
I'm only after success
Don't need a relationship
I'll never soften my grip

Don't want cash, don't want car
Want it fast, want it hard
Don't need money, don't need fame
I just want to make a change
I just wanna change (x4)

CHORUS:
I know exactly what I want and who I want to be
I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine
I'm now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy
Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no

One track mind, one track heart
If I fail, I'll fall apart
Maybe it is all a test
Cause I feel like I'm the worst
So I always act like I'm the best

If you are not very careful
Your possessions will possess you
TV taught me how to feel
Now real life has no appeal
It has no appeal (x4)

(chorus repeat twice)

I'm gonna live, I'm gonna fly,
I'm gonna fail, I'm gonna die,
I'm gonna live, I'm gonna fly
I'm gonna fail, gonna die, die, die, die

(chorus repeat twice)

Da-da-dum...
Oh, oh no, oh no, oh no
