about

"In a time when the term 'independent' is loosely applied to subsidiaries of giant conglomerates, Deep Elm stands as one of the most durable, important and truly independent record labels. It is beholden to no other company and continues to be shaped by the enthusiasm and vision of its founder." - Action Attack (DER-460)

Track Name: Sounds Like Violence - The Greatest
i am the train, you keep on missing over and over again, i am your brother, i am your sister too, i'm everyone you never liked or spoke a word to, i am the mountain, i am the sky and the sun, i am everything you breathe, i got your soul, i threw it away, i am the system, i am your whole world in fact, i am everything you keep on giving your finger at, i'm your candy cane, my sweetness feeds your brain, i'm the acid rain that keeps on pouring down and stick holes in your veins, i'm standing above you, i'm standing above you now, i am the greatest!
Track Name: Fightstar - Paint Your Target
You hide it everytime you miss. Impatience waits around for me. You dance under the question mark. Without even trying. I'm just not sure it's going to work. It's where you are. You can burn it all. Rally around the table if you want to. Just to argue out the last scenes of us. You can end it all. I'm sorry enough to tell you that I'm OK and I'm never gonna see you again. The killers walking amongst us. Look around they'll find your ashes. You tred all over your mistakes. And every heart you'll ever break. You stumble through questions that you could never answer. That barrel is loaded so go and paint your target. So elegant you stagger round. With beautiful falls
Track Name: Burns Out Bright - The World Is Going To Hell
right now, it's time to put your name on the line. you've wanted you've waited for it all this time. they've set your price, will you sell. or can you hold on to this when there's nothing else. inside, you know this is life. depression, passion, leaving love behind. don't lie to yourself. you've got to think of all the reasons that you're doing fine. you'll sign and then you'll sing. they'll market everything. poison everything you love. sell it to the one's you hate. you'll sign and then you'll scream. remember everything. the only thing you love. and the job it just became. you're all a part of the scenery to me. open, you've got to open your eyes. it's money that they're driven by. when you are thrown up against the wall. will they follow you or will you fall. inside, will you survive. your passion, depression, all you left behind. no need to fight, this is only your life. just close your eyes and hope it turns out right
Track Name: Latterman - Water Manes At The Block's End
if we've ran a million miles to get to this place we'll keep the pace. because I haven't found answers yet along the way to all my questions on where I need to be or what to believe. if I can lay claim to any achievement here's my secret: I'm still unsure of everything. but I'm sure that hell has our names cause we're failing everyday as we search for a home where we won't die alone. I need to back up from these dead ends. so back me up my friend. if today the ground gives in I hope we won't fall alone because you know I don't want to go alone. so hell can have our fucking names because we'll fail and fuck up until we're in the grave. so I'll search for someplace where we wont die alone someday. you know I need to back up from these dead ends. so back me up my friend
Track Name: Clair De Lune - Assisted Living
crawl out of bottles a day before the week ends, only to crawl back in. find me on the floor, shake me and pick me up. sick in sweat. drunk in my bed. assure me it can't get any worse. you sit back, i hold on. put my limbs into tourniquets. the whiskey stopped drowning the nerves in my skull. my shattered bones are crawling out. days start to bleed, consistently exposing me at my worst. you stand by looking on, ready to catch me if i fall. blurred nights seem easy somehow. stand close, i'll lean on. put my limbs into tourniquets. the whiskey stopped drowning the nerves in my skull. my shattered bones are crawling out. the days are reserved for forgiveness. the nights induce mouthfuls of theories and bourbon. smoke until my lungs bleed or waltz with the devil. where are we now?
Track Name: Small Arms Dealer - Augie Doggie
i know it's been a while. since we've had a talk. ya know, a man to man. a real heart to heart. i would call you. on the telephone. just to say hi. if you weren't dead. but you are, so i can't, so i don't. i could say a little prayer but i won't. just know that it's not your fault. that i ruin everything. since you've been away. i haven't had much to say. but one thing i need to know. are you still proud of me? when you were alive. i could make you smile. apple of your eye. we were two of a kind. you and i have made. all the same mistakes. you would tell me so. if you weren't dead. but you are and i'm not. i could even the score. it just takes one shot. but i won't. and when i get like that. i just think of you. yeah, i do that a lot. so here's my little note to you. it's something i needed to do. and know that i still love you. i don't know if i'll see you again. i hope i will someday. but i'll write this down in case. i just wanted you to know. that you were my everything. all my life, you were by my side. i'll do what's right and. make sure you're still proud of me
Track Name: Free Diamonds - Blind Boys
stop what you're doing to me. i've gotta headache from the things that you're saying to me. i gotta girl who likes to party a lot. i'm just a boy who doesn't like to party at all. save me. i've gotta headache from the things that you're doing to me. i've gotta heart that keeps getting broken a lot. i've gotta a heart that i've gotta keep fixing a lot. stop that disco beat. i've got a headache from the pills that you're giving to me. i've got a loose grip on my reality. let the blind boys come and take you away. i said save me. i've gotta headache from the things that you're doing to me. i've gotta heart that's bigger than a parking lot. i've gotta heart that you're trying to fuck a lot
Track Name: Flanders - Anky Fremp
useless, just a wanna be. take the best option, when it suited. i was only asking for a weekend. just a little sanity, to confuse it. she's really coming on, really going on. really coming on, really going on. ruthless, self defeating. always take a backseat to the problem. i was only searching for a moment. a little resolution to diffuse it. i guess you took the sweetest pill. just to get the cheapest thrill. she's back on her feet again. back on her knees again. i guess it was a moment of haste. not a time to celebrate. i guess your not sweet at all. not the sweetest of all. useless, just a wanna be. take the best option, when it suited. i was only asking for a weekend. just an opportunity, to confuse it. i guess she said she likes the band and she'll prove it. not a phony word to say and i like it. not a moments rest to play, and i hate it. dreaming of all the things to do and i love it
Track Name: Slowride - Morals And Dogma
in subsequent and lazy times. a rule was handed down from years before. and lips resound. a vacant sound a breathing. one head with ears has heard. on a timeline of years. we're most certainly out of deals. on our climb out of here. we'll most certainly die of fear. thin nurses came to cure my mind of all things. all three of them came through my own ceiling. i'll make you sure about it. i'll tell white lies about it. i'll make my own disaster plan
Track Name: Desert City Soundtrack - Last Night's Floor
the dawn will break down when you wake up, because you spilled it all on last night's floor. now it's time to clean up, pick up your cards. it's the change of hands and the guilt of the change. it could only drive you away because you know you need the space, and besides it's an easy getaway. you were not what you've become, your hands were cold but your eyes were warm. now trouble's words are on your tongue
Track Name: Settlefish - It Was Bliss!
is there really any other move to be suggested. darling darling darling. salvation. did you mention to kindred spirits. that walked beyond you. the other. the other day. our house is a landmark. our house is a landmark. our house is a landmark. our house is a landmark. and you say and i say we all say. pleasure today. forget to convey all that passion. cause oh oh oh hide the smiles for the evening. cause we do do keep the smiles for later. that's really how it should be. that's really how it should be. taste for all and taste for all and taste for all and taste for all. how did we manage to stay together for such a long time. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss. it was bliss
Track Name: The Appleseed Cast - Reaction
facade. forewarn. the little worm. in turn you burn out the secret places. i fell like cancer. shake the smile from your face. be still and answer. put denial in it's place
Track Name: 500 Miles To Memphis - Sunshine In A Shotglass
i got back early. no one was home. the place is so empty here all alone. i bet you're out tonight living it up. i wish i could. it would do me no good. i sat in the kitchen. i finished the booze. i took all the pills sitting on the shelf. i'm ready to drown. ready to drown. ready to drown, but there's one more thing i've got left to say. i've got nothing left now. i risked out everything to spend my time with you. and now that she's leaving i'm here dying. i'll be raising up a shot glass tonight. when this life's over remember me sober. at one point in time we were doing alright. i can't blame you for leaving. i'd have done the same, because you don't deserve to get mixed up in this game. i'll praying with a shot glass tonight. i'll be buried in a shot glass tonight
Track Name: So Sad Althea - Crush So Sweet
see her. through the sky. feel her. through the sun. nothing, will bring her back to me. the stars won't shine. i know they'll, forgive you. seasons. passed me by. memories. won't give in. nothing, will bring her back to me. the stars won't shine. i know they'll, forgive you
Track Name: Small Arms Dealer - Scumbagsville, CT
i'll be right here for a little while. captive to the kiss of the bathroom tile. it doesn't even cramp my style. i'm back at it again. over and over and over and over again (until i'm dead). as bad as i can be (until i'm dead). there's nothing worse than you and me. did you remember to put one in the chamber? put it to the temple of the one who gave us up. i'll most likely end up in hell. but i'm not going alone (fuck no!). i'm bringing every fucking one i know. it's time to go (let's fucking go). as bad as i can be (let's fucking go). there's nothing worse than you and me. did you remember to put one in the chamber? put it to the temple of the one who gave us up. we'll end up in court. we'll be our own defense. the people of CT vs.. meanwhile in New York. the prosecution rests. they couldn't dig up anything on us. our plea, insanity. how could they prove us wrong?
Track Name: Latterman - Video Games And Fantasy Novels
i can feel another winter coming on. and we're still walking the same ground. our footprints are blending together. and i can still see them in circles in and out of this place. may this headache go away. may this smile stay the same. when i grow up. i want to be like me. and when you grow up i hope that you're still like you. we're still living under the same sky. but these parking lot lights block mine. and we'd like to think that we've changed. but i keep telling the same ten stories in and out of this place. with the same embellished lies about the best times of our lives. and these stories they go on and on
