Track Name: Ride Your Bike - Sticks And Stones
When Day peeks his head from the blanket. And the numbers blur on the clock. He gets up and says, It's Time to shine again. And even when the clouds shroud and thunder. He tries his best to yell back and slap from slumber. They're just numbers. They're just words. Just symbols. And they hurt. They're just sticks and stones. Buried in the Earth. They're just sticks and stones. But they break our bones. You're just sticks and stones. While the oyster takes sand. And makes pearls. It plants a speck of doubt. All I can make is sound. How am I to take a speck of something fake? And spit long sentences out. How am I to feel when they stay in their shell? Until it's time to spit the masterpiece out of their mouths. When night peeks her head from the coffin. And spreads her wings to block the sun. She gets up and says, It's time to fly again. And even when the stars shine bright. She blinds even the keenest eye. They're just sticks and stones. But they broke our bones. It will start like it ended. With a bang
Track Name: Desoto Jones - Giant Magnets
celebrating distress with a good friend. sending promises down with a ship that sinks. a wrecking ball is our only solution. we need the company of someone who cares. too much love. too much joy. too much warmth. too much to ignore. touching down for the sake of approval. there's no opinion worth the toll of a thousand hearts. we're elbows deep in the jar with a cold fist. the well is empty and there's no one who cares. breathe easy, you know that we'll all get by. too much love. too much joy. too much warmth. too much to ignore. giant magnets will pull us all in, keep in mind all we ever want is change. giant magnets will sort us all out, keep in mind all we ever do is change. sing it loud, sing it strong. too much love. too much joy. too much warmth. too much to ignore. and i feel ashamed, honestly i feel ashamed...but you dont have to
Track Name: Moving Mountains - Grow On, Grow Up, Grow Out
Oh God, what the fuck is going on with me and everyone. It's you and me. Someday we'll see the end. Because you're in the sky and I'm in the earth. But this time it's different. I swear to God. The sun's exploding within my arms. And it's getting warmer and I can see. That the sun is truly in love with me. Because you and I. Were blown away by love and hope for better days. You and I were blown away
Track Name: Track A Tiger - Saint About To Fall
restless from the fury, i laid her out to sin. but she stayed to serve the night once again. once again in her is the end of all things, of all things. this worn out cast has dropped so low. a saint about to fall, i let her go. i let her go because in her is the end of all things. and once again i laid her out to sin but she stayed. but she stayed
Track Name: Dartz! - Once, Twice, Again!
Two strong steps on the pavement and we're on our way. Made an acquaintance tonight I won't forget or ever meet again. He said 'There must be someone here who is not afraid?' Come now, planes fall out of the sky when it rains. Be calm take a moment to relax. Today we'll all admire an interesting fact. Reporters cry once, twice, again! We'll ignore it all and get away without them. But I'm quite simply useless without my medicine. I'm worried about how tall the buildings are and who built them. I can see it in their faces I can see it in their stares. Let's save our sanity even if we can't save there's. We'll meet in the city underneath a neon sign. That calls the fleeing forward and just into the light. We'll meet in the city where nobody will see. To let the bodies file out and realise. They are free
Track Name: 500 Miles To Memphis - All My Friends Are Crazy
all my friends are crazy, but that just ain't me. i never listen to what they say. they're all good hearted with good intentions, but that don't matter much when i am here. pointless advice to ease my pain, i take it with a grain, because there's no way i'll be sleeping tonight. it's alright. and i wait for the new year. they'll be breaking some hearts my dear. i can't say that i'm not the same. another year and another heartache. i hope it gets better than this. i learn the hard way. what's a lesson if i can't live it and walk away? until then i'll retire to the same place i've been trying leave all this time. hey bartender i'll have another
Track Name: Desoto Jones - Nonfiction
long ago i used to feel safe beneath this imaginary shield, big and bright. i stood up straight with confidence that nothing bad could ever come inside. the veil is off and now i see the swollen face and crooked teeth of a world less divine. back and forth like civil war, i battle tears when thoughts of you cross through my mind. this is nonfiction, it's as real as it gets. oh we'll have to learn to understand we are not invincible and our salvation won't be coming this way again. it's just our luck. tidal waves came crashing through with no permission, drowning out the chance of a smile. and i don't know who i'm praying to but i'm desperate for a miracle, i'd give all that i have. this is nonfiction, it's as real as it gets. oh we'll have to learn to understand we are not invincible and our salvation won't be coming this way again. and i must admit i'm a nervous wreck. the more i wonder the worse it gets and it's always dragging me down. this is nonfiction, it's as real as it gets. it's forcing my heart to the floor. i can't seem to dream anymore. it's forcing my eyes to the floor. my world has stopped and i don't feel it will ever turn again. this is nonfiction, it's as real as it gets. oh we'll have to learn to understand we are not invincible and our salvation won't be coming this way again. and i must admit i'm a nervous wreck. the more i wonder the worse it gets and it's always dragging me down. this is nonfiction, it's as real as it gets. it's just our luck
Track Name: Starmarket - Coming From The Cold
little boy. always scared. never learned how to make friends. pushed around. laughed upon. you are still stuck in a world that's in the past. and it's gonna last. last until you understand. i won't take this even though i'm sorry too. and i know just how you feel. you're not the only one that's striving for the truth. but this is not the way to be. different ways. still the same. guess we never have much choice. without trust for no one. as if everything is all the same today. like nothing's ever changed. will you ever understand. i would like to know your heart. was it like this from the start. is it ever gonna change. will it always be the same. don't you know just what you do. is there only room for you. won't you come in from the cold. won't you leave your lonely road
Track Name: Small Arms Dealer - Whole Company's Countin' On Ya
how much more can i take? my only thought as i wake. a new sunrise to blind me. guts burn and churn like the sea. days bleed into weeks. time clock's made a ghost outta me. i don't wanna whine. and it ain't about the fucking money. it's just a waste of my time. if i don't get nothing from it. you can pay me to work until i bleed. but you can't change this undeniable need. to do what i love, to be what i wanted to be. no more sweet dream. the alarm clock screams. and pushed me onto unwilling feet. i fight my way through one more day. until i'm back in bed and do it all over again. in the end what do i get? a blank stare and a paycheck. we are not what we do. we are not what they put us through
Track Name: Free Diamonds - Hugs & Kisses
i couldn't shoot somebody. i wouldn't have the nerve. but her aim is much more deadly. and i know who she'd shoot first. we were all hugs and kisses. now there's no hugs and kisses anymore. i'd try poison when she's sleeping. but she always looks so nice. she's happy when she's dreaming. and i'd only change my mind. we were all hugs and kisses. now there's no hugs and kisses anymore. i couldn't shoot somebody. i wouldn't have the nerve. but her aim is much more deadly. and i know who she'd shoot first. we were all hugs and kisses. now there's no hugs and kisses anymore. i'd try poison when she's sleeping. but she always looks so nice. she's happy when she's dreaming. and i'd only change my mind. we were all hugs and kisses. now there's no hugs and kisses anymore
Track Name: Ride Your Bike - We All Have Our Own Shoes
This is opening night this is the curtain call of life. Etching with melody scenery to the void. I bet we could paint them and I bet we'd take our time. Slobbering sick ideas at them under fake lights. What ever happened to the oak tree and conquered creek. They fade away so just send another one down to me. Stand steady cause there's answers in the harmony. Never found by the weak kneed. At the beach wetting a red stone and painting your face. Then diving in to be rid of this peach color paint. We're all perfect imperfections and we all have our own shoes. So where we step is where we choose
Track Name: Track A Tiger - Light
i want to ride in the light beside you and hear your heart make a sound for me
Track Name: Moving Mountains - Cover The Roots / Lower The Stems
You know it's really hard to do. To think of anyone but you. And how your soul lives in my own. The trees are growing roots that will hold your heart inside your chest where you lay. Fear no more my son. Because someday the trees will sing. And I know that someday will come. Where the trees are growing roots among the place we used to sit and breathe the air. Someday. Someday the trees will sing. "Oh my God! My heart is with you now! And my body's growing roots that will hold your feelings down. And I will sing a song for you. Where a thousand pandas dance under the warmth and ocean blue."
Track Name: Clair De Lune - Black Heart Charades
this costume feels so out of place. my weary limbs, weathered face. contorted vessels full of lies. and it makes me feel like...left for dead like a doll in a vacant house. like abandoning guilt in a desert town. horses branded and fed, caught and drug around. digging deeper until the ground has given way. never really believed in that dried up house. never really believed in that desert town. shoot the horse in the head. get us out of here. drive out to the plains. black heart charades. like sinking. lie. practice a straighter face. cheat. until you've won your race. need. take and need some more. lie. cheat. need. lie. steal like a whore. lie. practice a straighter face. cheat. 'til you've won your race. dig deep, fake it like a one night stand. detach yourself from your number. sand kicked in your eyes. and all at once i feel the weight. and all at once i feel. there's no happy ending. is your house a home? guide me by manipulation. black heart charades. i should know its for the cause. black heart charades. i'll pretend it just gets easier. black heart charades
Track Name: Dartz! - St. Petersburg
It's my turn. It's your turn. It's my turn. Time to leave. Take a bag and pack it neat. I've got no future so I'm marching east. Copses and cardboard boxes. A mystery to the world. I don't feel exotic driving Japanese cars. And I don't see the value. Of roofs and paths like well made graphs. It's not enough to cling to. Sandy polystyrene haunts my recollection. Of a frozen face that wanted your affection. And I hid the fact. I always hid the fact. I'd like a room in St. Petersburg. With rotting walls and character. Where I can hide and stay inside. And be a mystery to the world
Track Name: Free Diamonds - My Boxing Days Are Over
i drove home to the countryside. just so you won't be alone. i left the biggest city behind. just so you won't be alone. i'll keep working this city. all night long. and when it snows i'm gonna get me a plow. just so you won't be alone. i'm gonna get me the fastest car. just so you won't be alone. i'll keep working this city. all night long. the city never looked so far away
