Track Name: Small Wonder - Heaven Awaits Me
you are Heaven
you are what I wanted
you are something
left coarse and haunted

you holy
you are enchanted
you are heartbeats
that I took for granted

this is the dawning of the loves of our lives, alright
so find your sons, and daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives

you can't explain
some shit away
Heaven awaits me
Heaven awaits me

[...just your tongue in my mouth]

you are savage
with legs built of bruises
barely mortal
you are more than human

but your heart beats
and your veins bleed
oooooo
we are ghosts under sheets

this is the instant when the bee's take the hive from the queen
you are the stormcloud that has come to wash me pristene

you can't explain
some shit away
Heaven awaits me
Heaven awaits me
Track Name: Told Slant - Algae Bloom
Static state go away go away
I want to feel a little conscious by the end of the day
I tend to feel a little nauseous when you're pushing away

Some things we talked about
its hard to talk about you right now
you look like algae bloom when you're down
we used to walk around
now I walk without you around
that's hard to talk about

Still water

I want to shout like a thundercloud
yell my lungs right out of my mouth
you look like algae bloom when you're down

The woman on my voicemail machine doesn't have a lot to say because you don't have a lot to say to me today

static state go away go away
I'd like to feel a little conscious by the end of the day
Track Name: Bellows - Darker Days
Lazy day, someone calls me
I would like to see myself at a party across the room
wouldn't you?

Crazy night, did we not speak?
I close my eyes and see you
and you freak out
tall and loud, mean and proud

If your rain won't fall mine soon will
falling fast upon me like an anvil
on coyote, that's me
and fall I might and skin my knees
or sink beneath the surface 'til I'm buried
and fall I may into darker days

Racing through the morning, sleeping through the night
opening my eyes, dilating in the light
shivering my bones dry, shaking with delight
if God had sent his own sign it wouldn't look like mine
I am not my own priest and you have not been yours
fashionably distant, casually coarse
rationally wasted--the time is gone, of course
passionately razed but the weather's wrong, the time is gone

I do not want a solitary life, I don't want to die young
Track Name: Sharpless - Gaman
lyrics
Keep it inside
Our hearts inside the tide

Keep my mouth shut
and my body warm
Keep the door locked
We'll wait out the storm

Keep it inside
Our hearts against the tide

And my children, they won't have a say
on the future or the present day

Keep it inside
Our hearts beside the tide

And it's a terrible thing to see
When all the things you ever wanted
Are just cast into the sea
With all the things we ever needed
And your entire family
Is just another casualty

Keep it inside
Our hearts inside our minds

And my neighbors are still strangled
From the telephone wires that dangle

Keep it inside
Our hearts against our minds

I'm a father
I'm a mother
I'm a daughter
I'm a brother

Keep it inside
Our hearts beside our minds

And it's a terrible thing to see
When all the things you ever wanted
Are just cast into the sea
With all the things we ever needed
And your entire family
Is just another casualty
Track Name: eskimeaux - Grain of Sand
I came to you a grain of sand
a mere shadow of a mountain
an empty shell, save for a tiny heart
nestled in a guilty conscience
unsatisfied, I cut my own chest open
and O, how I was mistaken
'cause O, my heart was wider than the oceans.
The expanse of my heart was exponential
a boundless, new realized potential
but O, how to make it beat?
but you said, "Hush, Gabrielle,"
and you reached inside and squeezed
and my hesitant heart began to beat.
I came to you a grain of sand
a mere shadow of a mountain
you took my hand and in my ear you whispered,
"New York is not where you belong,
but O, together we'll be strong
and steadfast as rock
and we'll find somewhere we can gather moss
until our amassing mountain stands aloft."
Track Name: Random Child - Shark Mating Ritual
You smile nervously as I bear my teeth.
If I could pin you down onto the concrete I would.
Doesn’t this feel so unnatural to you?
The specks of blood drop on your t-shirt, so excuse me if I stare
It’s the only thing I know how to do at a time like this
For the first time in months, I think I’m in love
Track Name: Corey Switzer - It's Not A War
It's Not A War

It's not a prayer, it's not a war
it's not some baby you left before they were born
and it's not a drug you love to take
it's not some useless worn out mistake
because there's never been nothin' like this before
it's just some broken bottles you left lying on the shore

And it's not an excuse you used to use
it's not some word you loved but then you loved to abuse
and it's not a lady all dressed in red
holding her eyes to the ground with a turban 'round her head
because there's never been nothin' like this before
it's just some broken bottles you left lying on the shore

And it's not a lie you like to tell
about the time the angels came and they raised all hell
and it's not about you but it might be about me
soaked in sweat and rage in the centre of the city
because there's never been nothin' like this before
it's just some broken bottles you left lying on the shore

And I'm all alone, in the centre of the city
One more time
Track Name: Jack Ferencz - You Belong To Me
You let me go, so now I'll never know
The way that you look in all white
But I'm not bitter, even though we're not together
And I hope you feel good tonight
Because I know you belong to me

I always said that I'd never beg you
If you left me behind
And now you know that what I say is true
And girl, you know that you're mine
I spend all my nights in mourning
Waiting for you to come back in the morning
But I won't have to wait forever
'Cause I know that we're gonna be together
Girl, you belong to me

And even though I don't have any money,
I know I'm enough for you
You can't get enough of me, honey
How can I get that through to you?
I'd be crucified forever
If I could feel your denim, your leather
And I'd bow before my savior
If I could just taste your sweet flavor
Girl, you belong to me

I know that you think you'd be better off
If you were alone
But girl, it's not that easy
walking home on your own
Girl, you belong to me

I know that it's not easy
But girl, you belong to me
Track Name: Calamity Sam - Anna Queen of Scorpions
I'm gonna love you til the sun explodes
yeah, then we'll set fire to the dark
you got this power that I'm trying to understand
I only feel free when I'm under your command

It's Halloween and I don't know who I am
All I wanna but is Anna's man
but her desire is a darkness throbbing in the mist
Anna put your hands upon me I'm tremblin' beneath your kiss

you lead me through a maze of perfumes
you dressed my wounds in a golden room
in a golden room

but love alone could never save a man's soul
girl, I was scared, I was out of control
I was out of control

O sweet
Anna Queen of Scorpions
She's waiting for me by the bed
Got a knife inside her pretty hands
Sweet Anna Queen of Scorpions

I feel into a new circle of hell
Standing with you in that cold stairwell
You grabbed collar, took one step close and then let go
I saw your eyes and lord I lost all hope

Anna your ripping all the air from my lungs
burning my flesh with these fiery tongues
When I hear your name
my pulse quickens
You know if we ain't lovers we cannot be friends

You give me a look that would make any man freeze
"So do you think you know me"
Girl don't do that to me
Girl don't do that to me

Can't you see
That I could ask you the same?
How come we held back
We had so much to gain
We had so much to gain

O sweet
Anna Queen of Scorpions
She's waiting for me by the bed
Gotta knife inside her pretty hands
Sweet Anna Queen of Scorpions

Anna
Anna
Anna
Lemme show how true and deep my love is
But it don't matter to you
Cuz you're already past this

O sweet
Anna Queen of Scorpions
She's waiting for me by the bed
Gotta knife inside her pretty hands
Sweet Anna Queen of Scorpions
Sweet Anna Queen of Scorpions
Sweet Anna Queen of Scorpions
