That song list thing (that took forever)

So you people: Guess at the artist and song title in the followin' lyrics. I got this from lunarpollen, who imparts the following wisdom (along with some really obscure lyrics!):

The Rules:
* On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty-five songs on the list (no matter how embarrassing).
* Write down a couple lines of the song (avoid using a line with the song title).
* Have your friends comment and see if they know the songs and artists (for cover versions, they can guess either the original writer or the covering artist). (additionally, I will initially screened comments for spoiler-avoidance)
* When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct title and artist next to it.
* Using a search engine is CHEATING! Shame on you!


and so, thrill to my 25 song playlist, which was way weird since I only have a tiny hard drive and only a fraction of what I would usually enqueue :

  1. When logic and proportion/ Have fallen sloppy dead Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit (missmorte)
  2. hello, i'm good for nothing - will you love me just the same? Dresden Dolls - Perfect Fit (missmorte)
  3. And the blood tide, on the bitter shore/ sweeps over the mind till morning Marc Almond (and Foetus) - Unborn Stillborn (missmorte)
  4. Stop haunting me/ It should be easy/ As easy as when you stopped wanting me Conjure 1 feat. Sinéad O'Connor - Tears from the Moon (missmorte winnah winnah lobstah dinnah)
  5. pink and brown babies/ in pink stroller cars, know that it's good/ they dont care where they are Eels - Daisy Through Concrete (missmorte)
  6. Two worlds and in between/ Hot metal and methedrine Sisters of Mercy - Lucretia My Reflection (foundsound and I think you're evil if you don't know some sisters)
  7. But I am an atom/ And nothing can take me apart Assemblage 23 - Naked (foundsound)
  8. Words got twisted and history didn't know what to say/ God dog sex death life and now I'm feeling old Butthole Surfers - I saw an X-ray of a Girl Passing Gas (missmorte)
  9. her warm white belly in the life i'd lived had seen nothing/ finer she shakes and she moves me or something/ she's like jellyroll like sculpture Pixies - Subbacultcha (missmorte all dressed in black, i was all dressed up in... black)
  10. I have seen your eyes/ and I can see deaths disguise/ hanging on me
  11. I’m a little ambitious/ and I want my wishes/ So I gotta fuckticious, Sid Vicious/ doing all my dirty dishes Peaches - Bag It (missmorte)
  12. I was turning keys I was setting people free/ I was doing all right The Doors - Universal Mind (foundsound)
  13. I feel your pulse beating blue and I feel your skin crawls when we, we ,we, we fuck Zeromancer - Die of a Broken Heart (missmorte)
  14. Think I'll stay here/ Where life is safe and sound/ Its the end of me/ If i come down
  15. Why are you standing in one place/ born to blossom, bloom to perish/ your moment will run out/ cause of your sex chromosome
  16. as a buckle you could ask me "What was wrong with me before?/ Did I need the silver to be suitable?" Shellac - Copper (missmorte mad props for obscurity)
  17. I did my best, it wasn't much/ I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch/ I've told the truth I didn't come to fool you
  18. when i asked if you felt the same way for me/ you cut me off like a guillotine Dresden Dolls - Christopher Lydon (missmorte)
  19. And what would happen if the forces rushing in were to collide? Stromkern - Castaway (missmorte)
  20. I wanted her melted up inside me/ all the tears and the smiles shed for me/ she’d disappear to the world around me/ everything to be a powerful memory
  21. But his game is kinda weak/ And I know that he cannot approach me/ Cuz I'm lookin' like class and he's lookin' like trash/ Can't get wit' no deadbeat ass TLC - No Scrubs (missmorte loses 1/2 gothpoint for knowing this, while my goth stock plummets because i'm the one playing it.)
  22. Nothing is for free,/ the story goes/ You hear it and believe/ Now don't you grieve or look behind
  23. Pretty soon a mole had appeared on John's left leg and ropelike it extended out 469 different miles and verily verily it was 69 different nuns speaking simultaneously to John in 69 different languages Butthole Surfers - John E. Smoke (missmorte)
  24. A living secret, in silent darkness: abominations/ As soft and discreet as Uranium/ Your silver voice called us to action, the parts we play/ Are illusions that seem like we really are.
  25. I've seen the dark/ I've seen the brightness in one little spark/ I've seen what I choose and I've seen what I need Bjork and Thom Yorke - I've Seen it All (missmorte and foundsound)

You listen to a whole wad of stuff I've never touched, so I don't really stand a chance. Nonetheless, here's my contribution:

6: Sisters of Mercy, Lucretia My Reflection
7: Assemblage 23, Naked
12: The Doors, Universal Mind

And #25... Bjork?

Now, here I was all expecting to know a reasonable number after your comments about my music collection. But the only thing I recognize is the first line, or the first half of it--I never knew that's what the second half was (or else this is some weird parody/reference and not actually Jefferson Airplane). Although "death's disguise" seems a familiar phrase.
