Track Name: Brandtson - Round 13
i don't feel like being home. you can talk to the machine. i need a minute or two to be alone. so leave your message at the beep. i don't want your cold line. i don't need your passed over vice. i don't want your meantime two cents advice. cross me off your things to do. i don't want to hear from you. don't get my hopes up with your promises. all this is nothing new. just didn't expect for you to be the one holding the knife. i don't want anything to do with you or your policies. i don't want anything to do with your way of things. i don't feel right. i feel wronged. this isn't how it was supposed to be. i think i'll write it all into a song. put it all behind me. cut my losses and move on. i don't want anything to do with your company
Track Name: Brandtson - Blindspot
it's hard to see the sun sometimes through these eyes. it's hard to see the truth sometimes looking through these eyes. but yet i try. windowsill world of mine. maybe sometime i'll get up and go outside. leap of faith. i could close my eyes and jump. the hope of someday is safer and it doesn't hurt as much. i stand at the edge of the world and i cry. the rain beating down on my face as i try to swallow my fear of failing again. and wait for the clouds to break for the sun. do you remember the time when you said you could see the worry in my eyes. you don't know how hard i've tried to let it go. let it all subside. things seem so different when i look into your eyes. it all seems so simple when i look in from the outside. everything seems fine. you know me better than i know myself. and i trust you more than i trust anyone else. but promises broken are promises made. at least from what i've seen it all fades away
Track Name: Pop Unknown - Writing It Down For You
take me from the apple of my eye. distort the reasons why. she leaves me. again and again you see. find me on the ground. looking upside down at you. you're everything to me. i need to find out. if i'm anything to you. don't believe everything you hear. it's clear the reasons why. she comes back. again and again to me. knock me to the ground. looking upside down at you. you're killing me. you're killing me
Track Name: Flanders - Weighed Down
if you could see inside yourself. offering them something else. bring it back you know you can. you still take from what began. let it go. you could make it. taste it. weighed down. all alone into yourself. you hide that smile all so well. i saw you just the other day. it's always happening that way. let it go. in that crowd you are unique. you know your the one we seek. whatsoever's in your mind. you can leave it all behind. let it go
Track Name: Flanders - Rod & Todd
flick might ask i know you want me to. be around for your inspiration. but i'll be careful not to let you down. i will not hurt you when i'm falling down. on your own i don't know how you sleep. i couldn't believe that you are too frustrated. but i can't hear you not a spoken word. i'm not alone now could it be that it's the. weeks between the laughter and the weekend. don't want to sit around with all the people i condemn. don't want to see in ten years all the people i know. would you feel the same if i was someone's hero. a waste of time that is what you are. i couldn't believe that you have been mistaken. so hold me down never to believe in your backyard. so strong could i see things have changed. is it me or the. weeks between the laughter and the weekend. don't want to sit around with all the people i condemn. don't want to see in ten years all the people i know. would you feel the same if i was shouting. here i go again
Track Name: Camber - Beautiful Charade
sometimes i watch you when you sleep. watch your eyes move while you dream. you look so far away. your pretty mask burns up inside to hold monsters at bay. this city tears your soul away. you wonder if it's worth the stay. i've been feeling that way. our glimpse behind the brick facade reveals despair, decay. this beautiful charade. we were the last to know it. leaders of the parade. we were the last to know. i know exactly what you'll say even before you speak. and i know just what you are. but i can't see the gathering storm that changes sun to gray. this beautiful charade. i was the last to know it. leader of the parade. you were the last to know. you always know so much
Track Name: Camber - Hollowed-Out
takes me down underneath its weight. it is my master. i will drown underneath its sea it spells disaster. underneath its sea all's lost and found. until it's swallowed whole what's yours no way to ever know how much this can weigh. hollowed-out and broken. feeling i have lost control. and everything is gray. my dark cloud hovers overhead. constant companion. wrapped in dark shroud. lie alone in bed bottomless canyon. lie alone in bed all's lost and found. until it's swallowed whole what's yours no way to ever know how much this can weigh. hollowed-out and broken. feeling i have lost control. i am so tired of this conscious sleep. lethargic, low and uninspired. sinking ever deep. wallow in wet cement. i'm mired. crush me underneath it all. pull me from the weight that squeezes down
Track Name: Walt Mink - Brave Beyond The Call
i asked you for an answer. i wish that you would be. a little more dishonest babe. the truth is bad for me. when last week's generation. has grown too old to see. you'll be alone and miserable. just like you like to be. in fifty million houses. there's fifty million lies. and fifty million brains avert a hundred million eyes. you want to be my baby. you want it to be so. well here to you is my advice. if you love it let it go. what a drag. mama's secrets never leaked and she was brave beyond the call. put the welfare of her family's illusion over all. lost in outer space dementia. she'll prevent ya from it all. runs on ethyl alcohol. the man has called a meeting. on the 52nd floor. but meetings bring me down so i ain't. going to them no more. some people's never sated. there's always something more. they're giving up their bodies like. a drug addicted whore. what a drag. mama's secrets never leaked and she was brave beyond the call. put the welfare of her family's illusion over all. lost in outer space dementia. she'll prevent ya from it all. runs on ethyl alcohol. i asked you for an answer. should have known what was in store. but the answer that you gave me babe. just made me more unsure. what was i looking for
Track Name: Walt Mink - Act Of Quiet Desperation
it's sunday morning. she gazes at his head. and wishes he were dead. well get up, open your eyes. the bed is sinking. she notices too late. admist their sorry state. the lonesome fate. birds fly bye. kids outside. i promise we're fine. love will tow the line. i'll take it over. the ships are leaving port. and i'm waving from the shore. till i can't wave no more. someone is speaking. their voice is clear as day. but i don't know what they're saying. who cares anyway. birds fly bye. kids outside. i promise we're fine. love will tow the line. please don't cry. i've saved what's mine. we're tired of trying. when i can't tow the line

(medley)
Track Name: Muckafurgason - Wasting Time
i'm not the boy you're dreaming of. i'm just the guy in your bed. and if you say you're falling in love. i'll have to ask you who it's with. if you try to buy me. i'll say that i've been sold. and if you try to raise the stakes. you know that's when i'll fold. if you try to explain. i'll say you're wasting your time. if you try to make me see your point. i'll say that i've gone blind. nobody likes wasting time. but everybody likes wasting
