Track Name: King Khan - The Mourning Song
i wake up from every mourning
cant help feeling like a pawn
i wonder who will guide me through
yet another breaking dawn
i give a nod to the people
who've lost their lives in war
and ask myself a millionth time
could their lives have been worth more

in slumber we'll find silence
in mourning we'll find peace
and lay to rest what's ailin us
we shall be released

watch the birth of a youngin
see the blood spill on the ground
i wonder if its mother
will stay alive to hear its sound
watch the death of a soldier
by the bullet of his own gun
watch the same blood spillin backwards
tell me what victory has been won

in slumber we'll find silence
in mourning we'll find peace
and lay to rest what's ailin us
we shall be released

Take down all the nooses
wash your guilt away with pride
let humility breed compassion
and think of those who died
at the hands of someones profit
for the luxuries in life
for the holy books that were written
to give purpose to our pride
Track Name: Kevin Devine - I Love You, I'm Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks (Sketch Demo)
I love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thanks some bumper sticker wisdom while you’re walking the plank i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thanks the illusion of protection in the face of the tank
you were a student you were a soldier you were a symbol they made you a martyr
i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thank you when the nationalist demagogues eat the desperate & confused i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thank you when we’re so far past civility it feels useless to argue
but love isn’t passive a trick or a tactic it’s radical action so go, let ‘em have it
when I opened my perspective from my fear of the world to the daughter I was trying to raise, with the total sum of everything asleep in my lap, it was clear i was the one in my way
you said, “life is sweet, but my brain’s got teeth.”
i love you, i’m sorry, please help me, thank you you said, “acceptance & forgiveness” I said, “nobody asked you” i love you, i’m sorry, please help me i have to drop it some time, but i hate that i have to
oh, but it changed me -
oh, how it saved me,
shaped & remade me -
oh, what it gave me!:
I was burned out on obsessing at the end of the world and the daughter I was helping to raise." with the total sum of everything awake in my lap i could hear what you were trying to say:
you said, “life is sweet,
but my brain’s got teeth.”
you said, “life is sweet,
but my brain’s got teeth.”
life is sweet,
if i let it be.
I love you, I’m sorry, please help me, thanks, etc.
Track Name: Jennifer O'Connor - All Of Us Kids
all of us kids
phantom fireworks
intracoastal waterway
the dark star was
picking flowers
getting out of the way

come and see me when you can
come and see me when you can

all of us kids
pitching perfect
headlong into the storm
blanket my face
fixed in cold grace
forever falling down

come and see me when you can
come and see me when you can

I am here and then I’m gone
I am never coming home
Will I ever get back

all of us kids
sympathetic
through the phone
and through the mail
keeping quiet
don’t know why yet
just hoping you can do what’s right

come and see me when you can
come and see me when you can
Track Name: Stephen McBean - Cracks In the Sidewalk
Cherubs line suburban lawns
Transmitting frozen gods
Never, let us never dance in vain

Mutated freedom bleeds
Pharmaceutical death ships wait
On your shore while poisoned smog rolls in

Presidential zombie bore
Bad trips and napalm drones
Tonight, the wolves are in control

Cracks in the sidewalk
Holes in your heaven
Cracks in the sidewalk
Sing your harmonies in blood

Ammunition
The vacant kill
On parole against their will
Entranced to the beat of disco slums

For those who walk in toil
Amongst your diamond thrones
Forever, we the children resist control

Cracks in the sidewalk
Holes in your heaven
Cracks in the sidewalk
Sing your harmonies in blood
Track Name: Dot Dash - Flowers (Live and Floral)
I did the Hitch Hike, I did the Bunny Hop
I did the Mashed Potato, I did the Walk It Out
I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh

I did the Harlem Shake like I was Peter Pan
Felt like I was a boy, looked like an old man
I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh

Woke up in a field of flowers, felt like I hadn't slept in hours
Don't know why...

I lie awake at night and count my R.E.M.s
Doubled over like a diver with the bends
I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh

I'm searching for a heart (I'm like the Tin Man)
But I want you (I'm like Uncle Sam)
I sang the sha-la-la and the ooh-ooh-ooh

Woke up in a field of flowers, felt like I hadn't slept in hours
Don't know why…
Track Name: SAVAK - Green and Desperate
The world changed one November day
A force of evil, a twist of fate
A force of will from an entitled race
Masked by religion and hypocrisy
Empires rise, empires fall
Some people's view of the the world is small
Sometimes greed rises above it all
And people can't see through the lies

Laughing while you take away
All the progress that's been made
Now day is night and night is day
While you lead us into this dark, old age

You'll lead us into war and debt
People will die without regret
Our human capital you'll bet
To build your wealth, your oligarchy
Power and greed, desperate for fame
Gold plated world that bares your name
A hubris that knows no shame
And in the end you'll be forgotten

Laughing while you take away
All the progress that's been made
Now day is night and night is day
While you lead us into this dark, old age

Smiling while you walk away
From all the good things that we gave
My friends will go your friends will stay
As you lead them to a great despair

Laughing while you take away
All the progress that's been made
Time to resist and push away
While you lead us into this dark, old age

Smiling while you walk away
From all the good things that we gave
We'll keep New York you get Santa Fe
Because love and kindness always wins
Track Name: Anders Parker - Following Your Sound
Hold on - to everything in you
Hold on - to everything I know

Hard as it may seem
There's meaning to the dream
And with open heart
And open ears you'll find

That you are the one
Don’t give them what they want
Just walk into the sun

Don't let them bring you down
Or get you on the ground
Keep following your sound...


Go on - I'm watching you from here
Go on - I'm waiting just to hear

The songs you have to sing
The words you have to bring
I'll wait right here
Until the time has come

-- Chorus —
Track Name: East River Pipe - White Boy, Ain't You Got Enough?
this buy and this sell
it never stops
and you and me
we'll work 'til we drop
people cash out every day
the poor stay poor
there's nothin' to say

white boy, ain't you got enough?
you took most of it
now give back the stuff
white boy, ain't you got enough?
you stole most of it
now give back the stuff

some people say
let it go
let it go
some people say
let the rich run the show
i say no, no, no, no

white boy, ain't you got enough?
you tricked everyone
now give back the stuff
white boy, ain't you got enough?
you stole most of it
now give back the stuff
Track Name: A Nighthawk - Horses and Men
HORSES AND MEN

All of the horses and all of the men
They're coming in vengeance to protect the land
There's a fire, it's burning in his hand
Nobody knows who to reach for in this sand

If there is a key, reach for my hand
All of his people, with evil they stand
There's a fire, it's burning on the land
Nobody knows who to reach for, goddamn

Come on and take me by the hand
Let me know where you stand

All of the horses and all of the men
An evil, a vengeance is sweeping the land
There's a fire, it's burning in our hands
How do we stop a madman in his plans?

Come on, now, make me understand
Show me right where you stand
Show me where we're supposed to stand
Track Name: Silver Torches - Without You
Let’s run away
And escape the city tonight
Burn miles to the coast
And start a new life
The world we know is changing
But it’ll be alright

We are young, we are wild
We are trains in the night
We are sparks
In need of a flame to ignite
Let’s pretend we’re strangers
Just for tonight

Don’t take me back home
I don’t wanna be alone
I don’t wanna be without you

Since I met you
I can’t get you outta my mind
There’s a look in your eyes
That can’t be described
It cuts my heart to ribbons
Like a violent crime

Let’s skip town
Burn some miles on the highway tonight
There’s a place we can run to
There’s a place we can hide
Don’t lose nerve
Don’t worry
We’ll get there in time

Don’t take me back home
I don’t wanna be alone
I don’t wanna be without you

I don’t wanna be without you
I don’t wanna be

Without you
Track Name: Let's Go Sailing - Make Room for the Devil
I am spiraling downward
seeing red now in double.
I am moving away from the sun to make room for the devil.

And the people they watch me
in disgust and disbelief
picking out the parts of themselves
that they love to hate in others.
They could look at themselves
but why bother?

And i think that instead
of just banging my head
on this wall that has sprung up around us
from false words passed off as true
take my hand let's walk right through.

I am spiraling downward
or so you would expect.
i am moving away from the sun to make room for the devil.
Track Name: Blood Pumps - Long Gossip (Bonus Track)
How'd you find your way,
Just sit down
Keep yourself together
Saw you when you came in,
You were looking good
Now you're feeling shitty
Strange affectation,
When new shit comes to light
Thought it might do you some good
But you give yourself a head

You say "hey Bill, I think I used to care"
Now you say you don't
Does it matter if the walls got ears
When they won't leave you alone
I can tell you what they say
But you wouldn't want to hear it
Thought it might do you some good
But you give yourself a headache

Did some superstition get you down?
Did some novelty run off some town?
Long Gossip really knows, knows how to twist a knife
Seemed so real sometimes
Reaching for the longest night
Long Gossip really knows, knows how to twist a knife

Some people like to wear it on their sleeves
Some people've got a prosthetic ego
Some people will put circles all around your eyes
And treat you like a fool
Strange affectation,
When new shit comes to light
Thought it might do you some good, but you give yourself a headache
Track Name: Kangaroo - Frozen Yogurt (Bonus Track)
In the darkness
where the sun forgets to shine, I’m
deconstructing
the framework of my mind.

There is time to unravel the knot
but it’s a crime to give away the plot.
If I can’t be happy with what I’ve got,
then I’ll be happy with what i’m not.

Frozen yogurt
is melting on my chest.
Is it chocolate
or vanilla or mango?

There is time to unravel the knot
but my nerves are completely shot.
If only I could be happy with what I’ve got
I wouldn’t need to smoke so much pot
right?
Track Name: X My Heart - Feel What I Feel (Bonus Track)
Come lay down by my side lonely night
we can just look at the stars in each other's eyes
I've been under this wave of broken down days
dragging around another yesterday
but when i'm with you I'm okay

If you could feel everything I feel for you
there'd be no need for words
let them disappear
If you could see all that I see in you
you'd know why I put all my faith in you

It takes a lot to break inside of me
and I can tell you darling
you've gotten to me
I've been walking alone on this bittersweet road
now you've given me roots and I'm finally home
It's a life I've never known

If you could feel everything I feel for you
there'd be no need for words
let them disappear
If you could see all that I see in you
you'd know why I've got nothing left to lose

Bring me back to the light
when I get lost in my thoughts late at night in the darkness
I never knew what it meant to be free
til your love rescued me

If you could feel everything I feel for you
there'd be no need for words
let them disappear
If you could see all that I see in you
you'd know why I put all my faith in you

In you, my faith
In you, my faith
In you, my faith
All my faith in you
