Track Name: Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers - Any Other Night
You were indefinitely restless
i know I'm not one to talk but I always do
the concept is clear and always repeating
a constant fear you never could avoid

I heard he got you home safe that night
you were stumbling through the city
he just happened to be driving by

I want to fool myself into believing
you would of been fine if it were any other night

I am dreading this question
you wanted to know if it was all worth it
I wish that I could of lied
I felt the same way
I heard The Thermals sing ''So Here's Your Future''
Track Name: Elder Brother - Pennsylvania
We’re alive and so much isn’t.
We’re alive and so much isn’t.
I’ve got a couple paper bags.
We could keep our secret hidden.

I’m not making excuses,
I’m just weighing my anchor.
You’re not asking the questions,
I’m providing the answers.

We’re alive and so much isn’t,
But what’s alive in these conditions?
I still get sick from darker liquids
But I can keep our secret hidden.

I’m not making excuses,
I’m just weighing my anchor.
You’re not asking the questions,
I’m providing the answers.

When the corners of the earth folded together
We laughed out loud and covered it in feathers.

Oh, is it time to go? I didn’t know you were waiting up.
My left hand never knows what my right hand does.
I didn’t know you were waiting up.
I didn’t know you were waiting up.

I didn’t know you were waiting up.
Track Name: Forth Wanderers - Paws
I got a secret and it's holding me back, keeping me dragged
And you seem like i'm making you mad, hurts me bad
Don't say those things, i'll explain another time when i get it right

I'm so sick baby
I thought just maybe
make me fixed baby
i've been shy daily

I can't leave my house, i can't go out
It's nice to feel cared about but I think you've had your doubts
I'm not clear on where i stand, touch my hair and hold my hand
I like when you talk to me, smile and laugh and kiss my cheek
I think things you'd never guess a girl like me just makes a mess
I just make a mess

I'm so sick baby
Can't be fixed baby
Track Name: Foxing - Bit By a Dead Bee pt. II
old soul, this feels ugly / quiet skies seem so low with the ring of the rising tide / melancholy feels just like me / alone, not lonely / i think i'm so detached that i don't feel sound for anyone anymore / young soul apricot belly / i just enthrall and disappoint
Track Name: Zachary Hall - Closure
If you wanted me to go, why didn't you say so?
Cause you're the only thing that's kept me here for days
I'm just waiting for some form of closure
If you wanted me to stay, then why'd you leave me?
You've had me running round in circles these past few days
I'm just looking for some kind of answer

Those times, they were real
Like the way the sun was shining down on you and the way you made feel
I'm falling back on the lies, they just couldn't seem to find the strength to hold me up this time

If I wanted you to go, I would've said so.
You're the only reason that I ever loved this place
Seems you'll never know, how I felt so low
I always wanted you to stay, so why'd you leave me?
I've been running through my thoughts these past few days
I'm just waiting for a way to pick myself back up

I can't do this anymore
Wish I could've been the man you were looking for
My hearts been bound by these chains of what we were
Track Name: Halfling - I Know Exactly Why
Lost the vision you need
To get what you really want
You gave it up for something present but small
Crippled by a mindset
You gave up a heart and mind that would last til' the end

I know exactly why
You laughed at what I said
It played out the same way in my head

Tracing actions back to the root
Of what shapes the way you feel how you do
But you're only safer in numbers
When you know they're watching your back
With the only life that they have

I need to find a future that I can see myself in
A warm home to feel genuine
Surrounded and comforted by
The things that we choose to see
The things that remind me of you
The things that remind you of me
Track Name: Somos - Distorted Vision
Who knew it would come to this?
Old and boring adages
The poster that you've been staring at on the bathroom wall
As inspiration for each day of the week
To get you started on the path to prosperity
There's nothing like a shot in the arm of fake optimism
To distort your vision...

When you're on, no one can stand
When you're on, no one can stand
I'd like to share my thoughts
But then I'm just another interruption

You're just a holdout from another time
The yes men around you keep your head high
Out on a ledge again

Self-referential and effacing...

You might find, you might find
That I could see, I could see
Something that could never hang on a wall
Worth a thousand words of useless praise
A lifetime worth of accolades

There's enough hatred around
To paint this whole town or burn it all down
How long could your patience hold out
From the bottom of the pile?
Track Name: Modern Baseball - Rock Bottom
Is he here? Are you making out?
I can you hear you guys on the couch
Shut up. Make out.
Do something already. I'm waiting

After reading that text from your friends
I start losing all my confidence
So I'll stay tired, I know soon I'll be bailing

Then you, you ask if I gotta leave,
And I wish that I could say no

My head is on the verge of exploding
No amount of aspirin or pizza could help this from hurting
And now I'm turning to you scared shitless
Hoping this song goes well

Can we hide like the fact that
My mouth smells like coffee and garlic
The five cups I had this morning are getting to me
I gotta go I got the worst fucking spins

Then you, you ask if I gotta leave,
And I wish that I could say no
But we’re so caught up in the moment
And I just need a second to catch my goddamn breath

To hell with the spins I'm staying
There's no good reason why I should leave your bed tomorrow
We can watch planet earth and brain storm tattoos

To hell with class I'm skipping
Lets order food and sleep in
I've got so much to do
But it's ok cause whatever, forever

To hell with the spins I'm staying
There's no good reason why I should leave your bed tomorrow
We can watch planet earth and brain storm tattoos
Track Name: Potty Mouth - The Spins
One too much, I think I'm done
My head is spinning, my lips are numb
How about one more, it's just for fun
But I can't stand and I feel dumb

Because it's hard to say no, yeah it's hard to say no
Think you'll be ok, but you really should have known
And it's hard to say no! It's hard do say no!
Because you think you'll be ok, until you're laying to the floor. (x2)

One too much, I think I'm done
My head is spinning, my lips are numb
How about one more, it's just for fun
But I can't stand and I feel dumb

Because it's hard to say no, yeah it's hard to say no
Think you'll be ok, but you really should have known
And it's hard to say no! It's hard do say no!
Because you think you'll be ok, until you're laying to the floor. (x2)

Shouts: Watch! Me! Crawl across the floor(?)!

One too much, I think I'm done
My head is spinning, my lips are numb
How about one more, it's just for fun
But I can't stand and I feel dumb

Because it's hard to say no, yeah it's hard to say no
Think you'll be ok, but you really should have known
Yeah it's hard to say no! It's hard to say no!
Because you think you'll be ok, until you're laying to the floor. (x2)
Track Name: All Dogs - BASEMENT
there was something in the way we just sailed on through those days. never wondered what was next, never guessed it'd be like this. never thought we'd feel this weight, never thought it'd fade away. and even though it's there, it never will be anywhere near where it was in those days. you are so close but far away. even if we're in the same town you're in a different place. how'd the time go by so fast? i watched something that i loved just turn into the past. i can't lift this weight, i don't want it to fade away. and on the walls i wrote that i would never forget what happened in that place. is it over now? is it? never thought it'd fade away, never thought we'd feel this weight. even though i try i just can't get it out of my mind, how much it meant to me. it's not over now. is it?
Track Name: Nai Harvest - Rush
Everything I do is so rushed
I wish that I didn't care so much
I miss this more than I can touch
I wish that I didn't care so much

Everything I love is dead
Kill my heart, kill my head
I'll be here lying in bed
When everything I love is dead

Open up your eyes
And you'll see me for the first time

Everything I love is dead
Kill my heart, kill my head
I'll be here lying in bed
When everything I love is dead
Track Name: Off & On - Madison
Woke up dreaming from another place in time
Write my mind a letter to get things in line
Goodbye and enjoy my jacket
Too close too fast
The tread won't let us hack it

you say you will,
but you don't
say you will,
but you don't
say you will,
but you won't

you say you will,
but you don't
say you will,
but you don't
say you will,
but you won't


i know i know
you get it
you go
i'm just a pacemaker
you're just a peacekeeper
i know i know
you get it
you go
i'm just a pace taker
you're just a peacekeeper

so i walked slow, looking for another place to fly
by the time i'm up i'm just down - good
goodbye to old news and bad bad habits
too much too fast i know i couldn't have it

you say you will, but you don't
say you will, but you don't
say you will, but you won't

i know i know
you get it
you go
i'm just a pacemaker
you're just a peacekeeper
i know i know
you get it
you go
i'm just a pace taker
you're just a peacekeeper
Track Name: Porches - Intimate
i'm no good at the city
you are very pretty
i'm just a ditz
won't you kiss me on my hips

what if i'm not what you expect
what the heck
let's get intimate
what the heck
i'm just a kid
won't you kiss me til i'm dead
Track Name: Speedy Ortiz - Tiger Tank
Was it my teeth or my tongue that said
"Glue shut your lips, let us take a rest"
Oh my mouth is a factory for every toxic part of speech I spew

Late, languorous and afraid to ask
Caught my reflection in some sea-washed glass
Oh, my face is unable to convey how very awfully I'm doing

Laugh out of habit at the lump schematics
I smoked my senses, it made me so demented
I see me and you in the kennel cough,
Signaling the sleuths of the trail we trot.
Expansion rattles out this old lump.

Bats get bristled; the imps heat up
Spoon out the sweet stuff for streetwise smut
Oh, my gut absorbs the fiercest blows
You never thought you'd have to throw

Laugh out of habit at the lump schematics
My psychic tenses make me so defensive
I see me and you in the tiger tank
Swimming as they yowl; soon they're tearing us
Limb from every limb to the kennel cough
Limb from every limb to the

Don't even care if they take my legs
I've limped before, I can limp again
Though my limp is not able to display
How very awfully I'm doing
Track Name: Tancred - Allston
I lost the meaning in the fire
It's like it's something I was never meant to find
I've called and they say that there's no use
But it's been using me up

Split my actions three directions
Looking for something outside my mind

I've always found myself outside your house at night
I've always found your fingers snarled into mine

And now you're walking with no shoes on
Down a dirty street in Allston
I ask you why you left me
And you're saying that you didn't

My belief in you
Shakes and stirs
But it will not ever dissolve
Track Name: Waxahatchee - Coast To Coast
Treacherous, empty
Alert on the backseat
Visiting disgrace
Each dull face or first name
You scan the AM for "Coast to Coast"
And I'll try to embrace the lows
We lay at night
Cursing our stage fright
Or leading our own lives
Into the empty night
When you've indulged every reckless whim
What is the weight of all your weakness
Track Name: Chumped - Dear Emily Dickinson
Do you find me beautiful? Do you still want me around? It's hard to read your thoughts when I fall asleep next to myself. You gave me Emily, I gave you movie screens. Asked you to marry me. I wasn't thinking clearly. I'm not a martyr. I'm not a saint. I never said that I was perfect, never said you were to blame. I wrote you poetry about the way we kissed. I guess its been a while. I just write grocery lists. Can you please get these things on your way from work? I wanna cook us dinner and make love afterward. I'm not a martyr. I'm not a saint. I never said that I was perfect, never said you were to blame. "When that which is. And that which was. Apart, intrinsic, stand" I'm still loving you the same.
Track Name: Roosevelt - David Spockney Paints The Enterprise
Well, God, I guess I seek your advice,
You see, I've hit what they call, "rock bottom".
And if you happen to reminisce,
Of the things that I daily miss:
Your front yard, your front porch, and your house,
Are things I'll have to do without.

What's even worse?
Is that you're not here

And if you had to choose,
Between something and me,
I hope you'd choose that something,
And quickly forget me,
Forget all about me.

Well, winter's here,
I'm stuck in your rut,
You'd think by now,
I would've shut my mouth,
Can this get much worse?
I'm really hoping so,
Then you'd finally see,
What we've become:
Something short but so long lasting,
It's just so frustrating,
Realizing you've becoming everything to me.
Track Name: Tiny Moving Parts - Coffee With Tom
you drank coffee in college and I did the same
9 o' clock is when our session starts
the taste burns deep inside my tongue
newspaper articles are useless
we have each other
and to let you know Tom
you have refilled more than just my mug

a lost child at the playground
Mom's gone and there's no one left to play along
your imaginary best friends are all whose left to push you on the swing set
all my comfort is in the water
my bloodstream runs deep in our 10,000 lakes
but sadly i forgot how to swim.

my confidence has left my head
but i promise i'll get it back
it's just like a chameleon with my tail cut off
but i promise i'll get it back
bigger and stronger than ever before

someday I want to die
in your bed alone at night
counting sheep
hoping that they'll take me far from everything
hoping that they'll take me far from you and me
it's time for me to grow and to understand what life is
but i feel as if it's already to late

waking up when everything is everything you wanted waking up to be.

age 20 years young
i suddenly cry myself to sleep
(you have so many years ahead)
i know but if it weren't for you
i would be sleeping in the van with Bill
like a slumber party
just without the fun
Track Name: Adventures - Call Me At Night
call me at night, i'll wake up for you
but when the mornings come, you know i won't remember
call me at night, i'll wake up for you
but in the daylight my voice just wastes away

it gets so easy to go through the motions
spend my days in the comfort of failure
i'm finding shame in the ways i've tried leaving
drawing paths from the distance created

I lied
I lied to myself about the words we left unspoken
about the breath i've been holding
these minutes i spent waiting
Track Name: The Hotelier - Discomfort Revisited
You carry an illness and practically know it by name.
it seldom speaks for you but you learned to tune it away.
But it wasn't easy.
I was fond of your writing.
It allowed me to see into you.
You hid behind the similes
like fractal light in all shades of blue pebbles and mirrors.

I'm just jealous because I tried mapping out your mind's
inconsistent ways. Tangled and untied
I watched your ends start to fray.
You felt buried from the start. It's tearing you apart,
constricting the free-beating of your heart.
I knew your postcard would say,
"Wish you could stay wish you felt the same way."

Asked to be admitted and they put a lock on your door.
Subdued, medicated, face to linoleum floor.
And you tried to break away

painted window panes/bars behind the glass/molded to the frame
you saw yourself in those days.
You felt buried from the start. It's tearing you apart,
constricting the free-beating of your heart.
I knew your postcard would say,
"Wish you could stay wish you felt the same way."

I am tearing up pieces of old news
to mend the leaks in my open wounds,
protect your pressure points I refuse to press against.
Let your self renew.
Project the voice that I found
for you.
Pull up the weeds from the ground you grew.
Feel soil under your toes.
It's you you have forever.

Felt weaker when I bent, beaten to the end.
Folding on myself, too damaged to mend.
I couldn't hold all the weight.
You felt buried from the start. It's tearing you apart,
injuring yourself dragging from my arm.
I knew your postcard would say,
"I know your new heart still desires to play
and who would I be to keep it all for me."
Wish I could stay wish I felt the same way.
Track Name: Cayetana - Hot Dad Calendar
there’s a difference between
the things that we say and we mean
so take a deep breath
breathe in through your chest
and you’re lying face first on your mothers floor
saying “oh dear God what’d you do that for?”
now you’re lying face first on your fathers floor
saying “oh dear God what’d you do that for?”
you’re trying to be brave
and you’ve been brave before
i’ll help you clean out your basement
and fall asleep on your floor
and i know you really wanna make it out alive
and i know you really wanna make it out alive
and i know you really wanna make it out
there’ll be a clash between you and the you that’s staring back
but kid you’ll be okay
you get better with age
and kid you’ll be okay
you get better with age
remember that you are a snail
in every pinch
your shell may get heavy
but you’ll push through every inch
and i know you really wanna make it out alive
and i know you really wanna make it out alive
and i know you really wanna make it out
and i know you’re really gonna make it out
Track Name: You Blew It! - Award of the Year Award
There is a pain in my chest
And though I had pretend
to finally know it
It's time tied on my tongue
A thousand words repeating like a pendulum
Maybe it's just me versus jealousy
But god made so tempting to say

Give it a rest,
I shouldn't have to say this
But now I struggle to recognize you

You can always consider me a friend,
Just strictly in the past tense.
Maybe it's just me and hypocrisy
Still I'm just trying to say

Give it a rest,
I shouldn't have to say this
But now I struggle to recognize you

Give it a rest,
I shouldn't have to say this
But now I struggle to recognize you

You've indicated
That I'm nothing but a friend you hated
You've indicated
That I'm nothing but a friend you hated

I'm sorry that I haven't said

Give it a rest,
I shouldn't have to say this
But now I struggle to recognize you

Give it a rest
Track Name: Toasted Plastic - Last Rites
I don't think you're serious enough
These things seem so tedious to me
Say what you want, but you're influenced by everything
Head first dives and sympathy set free

(Nestled in the grave I helped you dig
Finding comfort in these kinds of things
You still say to keep an open mind
My voice gets quieter every time I try)

Try to find another way to get out
Tracing your steps but you still find yourself blaming me
You're listening for the sounds that I have gone away
Folding myself in half but growing all the same
Trying to organize whatever still remains

I just don't think you're serious
I'm getting tired of feeling this
of hearing this

I'm moving myself further away from the edge, and I'm hoping
I hope but I doubt you'll ever find out
The dirt above your head must be getting to you by now

As far as I can see from my footsteps is probably as far as I'll get
This place seems emptier without you, or so I thought
Track Name: Pierre - Skateboardian
It's the weight of the world
And it's resting on my shoulders
I'm in the market for new shoes
Or a new life
Or a new way
I'm disconcerned with the word
Unbelievable, mainly
'Cause I believe that it's real
It's warned me, it's warned me.

Not again, not I
I thought my will found a way

It's escaping the curl
Stay on the straight and narrow
Stay weird, stay cool, stay you
It's escapable
Unbreakable
Unmistakable
I didn't mean a word I said

My brain is melting over everything I own
You could beat me up and we could mosh it up
At home
Or we could fight for the last hit of what I've got
It's all the same to me

Not again, not I
I thought my will found a way.
Track Name: Save Ends - Song of Susannah
I'm under your skin
and I'm tearing up everything that you've been
I do it so gracefully
you don't realize

all these changes

we could have it all
you would be the first to fall
once you change direction
you would be the first to fall

you're a book I've read
a hundred times
I know your twists, your turns
and I've learned all the curves
of your spine
I know the way it goes

all these changes

we could have it all
you would be the first to fall
once you change direction
you would be the first to fall
we can't tell anyone about it now
cause you would be the first to fall
you would be the first to fall
Track Name: Greyscale - Mimi
i remember when I was
just a boy.
I would hold your hand,
we'd go to the park you'd push me on the swing.
You'd take me out for food,
you always ordered dessert.
You always had
such a sweet tooth.

Now you're done and gone away
from all of this
You're finally done feeling
all the pain from all of this.
When I was just turning 18
you left me,
you couldn't have held out until I graduated?

Those last three months I felt dying,
I woke up every morning with tears left from
the late night crying.
I don't wanna lose more sleep over you.

I didn't mean for it to end this way,
I still miss you every single Sunday.

You were actually 92,
I just never thought of you like that
like that.
You were always there for me
like my grandmother ought to be,
I'll see you on the other side some day.
I'll see you on the other side.
Track Name: Kevin King - Nothing New
Where else can I go? I'm seeing old houses in row stretching past the banks of snow. Am I no better than those who dwell between their walls? I am one of them after all. The city collapses into sprawl and all the kids are plastic dolls. They crawl along the street like monsters dancing next to me, and we sing.
What a price we pay for things we will only throw away. They pile up but they're not enough to make a charming display. Pride can get confused, you say "a pretty face should wear pretty shoes." You're doing you for you but that's a sad excuse, it's more like self-abuse. If there is evil within me then there is evil within everybody.
That's nothing new to you.
Bless this sorry mess that you have created in your chest. I swear you're not depressed you just feel bad at best and you're a little remote.
But my fingers and my toes are aching over every note. It's like my frame is composed of paper, glue and hope so I hide it all under clothes.
But there's still love somewhere in me, so there must be love in everybody
But that's nothing new to you.
