Track Name: Brother. - Curves
:: CURVES ::

The sound it makes when our words embrace
Panicking birds flapping into what we know

I, I hear the sound again
Call me from home again
Call me from hope
I feel your curves again
I'm alive, but I'm still sick

Take me from here
Make me behold what you are
Constant air flow
Minding it's from where I know

I, I hear the sound again
Call me from home again
Call me from hope
I feel your curves again
I'm alive, but I'm still sick

'Cause you don't know me anymore

I, I hear the sound again
Call me from home again
Call me from hope
I feel your curves again
I'm alive, but I'm still sick

'Cause you don't know me anymore

I, I hear the sound again
Call me from home again
Call me from hope
I feel your curves again
I'm alive, but I'm still sick

'Cause you don't know me anymore
Track Name: Chris Hartt - Anywhere We Go
:: ANYWHERE WE GO ::

You’re here with me now
We may have heard of the storm up here
And that all of the trouble that we’d care for
Had gone away for good

Let’s cut out the stories and sail away
Let the waves now lulled us to sleep
Well I know that we won’t be found anymore
Any shore ahead will do

But don’t cover your eyes with your hands
Not yet
Feel me all the way
Then go

You’re here with me
You’re going away well
It’s over now
You’re gone
Track Name: The Deathrettes - Animal
:: ANIMAL ::
Track Name: Distant Creatures - Lights
:: LIGHTS ::

I know there isn’t much time left
So try to be clear
Come sit beside me And we’ll
warm our bones in the fire
It may be hard to smile now
But soon you’ll have nothing to fear
Let me embrace you now
And feel the sorrows disappear
Can it be?
(There’s a light that guides us)
Can it be?
(and It goes through the night)


When those lights touch the sky
Moving through the grey
I can tell your heart’s been stayed
There is nothing left to say
When the rapids wash away all
Our home-bred war weariness
There’s nothing to account for
In our empty beds
Let me embrace you now
And maybe things will change
Let those sorrows go away now
Can it be?
(There’s a light that guides us)
Can it be?
(and It falls through the sky)
Track Name: The Fizz Pops - About Her
:: ABOUT HER ::
Track Name: Francis Moon - Summer Skin
:: SUMMER SKIN ::

Keep all the colors in
let them breathe on your winter skin
In the eye of the storm, I saw the shore
we´ll be alright.

Keep all the walls apart.
For a change,
and a fresh new start.
Like the sparrows we are
we dream, we fly and we find love.

In the night there´s a fire
telling me it´s alright.
Burning brighter than the sun.
Oh it keeps me hoping,
It will set your heart on fire

Keep all the summer nights
all the glow and the useless fights.
In the eye of the storm, I saw the shore.
We´ll be alright

Come a little closer
because I am the spring sun.
I´ll keep you warm, I´ll give you shelter from the lions.
Track Name: Go Barefoot - Drive
:: DRIVE ::

Come on lets get in and drive
I’m tired of sitting around all the time
Why’ve I tied myself so tight
To something that I’d call a boring life
I want to see the rolling hills
Sitting on my window sill
And if nothing’s what it really seems
Let me see what’s real to me



Oh when the night came and swept off my feet 

I feel right on my back 

Then I saw the stars 

And I’ll never go back
I’ll never go back
I’ll never go back
I’ll never go back


Oh when the night came and swept off my feet

I feel right on my back

Then I saw the stars

And I’ll never go back
I’ll never go back
I’ll never go back
I’ll never go back


The leaves are whispering to the trees
Now the moon caresses the sea
To be my own man
Oh man that’s good
To feel the way I always thought I should
And if nothing’s what it really seems
Let me see what’s real to me
Cause I don’t need your sympathy
Let me feel what’s real to me.
Track Name: Jonny Luck - Miss Heart
:: MISS HEART ::

Chorus
Said Miss Heart, where you been?
Smelling of wine and gin?
Where you been? Miss Heart Tonight?

So how you been? How you feeling?
Surrounded by crooks and villains?
How you been? Miss Heart Tonight?

Verse 1
Everything you know about love won't change your ways
You've got a lot to learn my dear
Bottom of the bottle has an answer that you'll never read
But that doesn't stop you trying to see
Bitching and moaning every night about the lover you lost
Crying, "Why do they all leave me?"
Don't you know that wearing out your heart in a dirty bar
Will bring you nothing but misery

Chorus

Verse 2
Don't you wonder what it's like to be alone for just one night
Without a man to warm your bed
Now every guy in town knows where to go to find your face
Not one remembers what you said
They're lying through their teeth when they say that they love you
Don't trust your heart instead of your head
You're selling yourself short if you think a couple drinks
Will ever find you a man to wed

Chorus

Bridge
Have you ever looked at yourself in the dirty mirror
No not just to touch up that face
You can wipe away all the tears my dear
But not what you did in that haze
They'll be talking and a laughing and a joking and a bragging
About what you get up to at night
And they'll be gone, out of here, hit that dusty road
Once they see that morning light

Chorus
Track Name: Long Range Hustle​ - Paddle Away
:: PADDLE AWAY ::

I’ve been around.
I’ve played a hero, and I’ve played
the villain that you drowned in that lake.
I’ve heard the sighs
of teary eyed children
when their parents come to take them away
from starry nights
and a fear of heights
that was abandoned when their feet left the ground.
So that they wonder now,
“whatever was it for?”

For pushing off of that shore,
to paddle away.

We grew into men,
we grew into women,
running from the bears in the woods
and in our hearts.
There’s fall in the leaves
and stains on our knees,
so we pack up our canoe in the dark.
On the shoreline sand, an open hand
with a needle that points to the north –
if there’s a lesson learned,
whatever was it for?

For pushing off of that shore,
to paddle away.
I’m pushing off of that shore,
to paddle away.
Track Name: The Moths - Depth Charge
N/A
Track Name: The Plastics - Alona
:: ALONA ::

You can do it Alona

Go out on your own

You don’t need them no more

Go out on your own

Over the mountains

Between the rivers

Forgotten lovers

Technicolor flowers

Over the towers

Between the bridges

Forgotten our

Forgotten powers

You can reap what you sow

Or you can light it all up

Just to watch it glow, just to watch it glow

You never needed a home

Just fall asleep in the snow

It’s a peaceful cold

Over the mountains

Between the rivers

Forgotten lovers

Technicolor flowers

Over the towers

Between the bridges

Forgotten our

Forgotten powers
Track Name: The Psalms - I Fade
:: I FADE ::

On my arm
you're heavy
Sucked me in
So clearly
But lust is blind
Said dearly
I'm holding on
But barely

Close my eyes and pray
I hate the way

Sonic lust
You gave me
Lovers' musk
Control me
Knees go week
I'm caving
Love is death
But I'm breathing

Close your eyes and pray
As I fade away
Track Name: RVBY MY DEAR - Animal
:: ANIMAL ::

Room was dark, air was thick
Stared into the empty space in the midst of it
Eyes locked tight, we tried to pry the secrets from each other cell’s

But we’re two halves of a broken whole
Shattered, tried to take ahold of me
Scrape the pieces from the bottom of my wine-­‐dark sea
Two ends of a burning wick
Melted, but can’t seem to make it
Stick to the edge, that’s where you’ll find the animal
My animal

Snow was deep, my blood ran thick
Stared into the empty void in the midst of it
Antlers locked, skins covered in the blackest shining night

But we’re two halves of a broken whole
Shattered, tried to take ahold of me
Scrape the pieces from the bottom of my wine-­‐dark sea
Two ends of a burning wick
Melted, but can’t seem to make it
Stick to the edge, that’s where you’ll find the animal
My animal

The memory of expired air
It lingers in the room where our minds met

The memory of expired air
It lingers in the room where we lost our,
Where we lost our minds

Track Name: Scratch Buffalo - Black Water
:: BLACK WATER ::

Now if your back don’t bend
Baby it’s gonna break
Let’s go swimmin’
In Alphabet Lake ​​

Two-way mirrors on your eyes
But it’s your heart you can’t deny
With your Black Water

Now if you don’t wanna talk
I know what to say
And if you wanna get lost
Baby, I know the way
Track Name: Simon van Gend - Google Song
:: GOOGLE SONG ::

No wonder I’m nervous
Google took a photo of the bushes outside my home
Are they here to serve us
Or sell us the illusion that we’re never gonna be alone?
Don’t you know the feeling hunting for the next thing
Fill up the space left by the last thing?
Everyone a piston pumping in the engine
What we really feel there’s no time to mention

Chorus:
And all this information doesn’t seem to change the way I feel
And everything we share is haunted by things we can’t reveal
Am I awake or half asleep and how much of this do I keep?
Am I a sheep that’s herded on by the need to belong?

But I love it, I’m hooked in
A couple more clicks and I gain another juicy fact,
But I don’t gain much wisdom
And the hours that I’ve wasted are never coming back
Everything I want is somewhere on the network
If anything is broken soon I’m an expert
Jumping to the sound of a new notification
Swimming in a sea of surplus information

Chorus

Totally beguiled I’m strung along for miles and miles
And I’ll do anything to hide the fact I’m broken up inside
And I waste hours I can’t afford just to pretend that I’m not bored
And I feel like I’m at the end, though I just gained another friend

I’m somehow still lonely
Even though I’ve got about a gigabyte of facebook friends
But none of them phones me
To tell me how they feel about the way we all pretend
Just the other day my internet was broken
Could not believe the fear that was awoken
Stumbled round the house bumping into feelings
Fearful of the hush and what it was revealing

Chorus
Track Name: Tape Hiss and Sparkle - One Mile To Violence
:: ONE MILE TO VIOLENCE ::

what would you do
if it happened to you
what would you say
if it was your pain
and could it be true
you'd have done the same
spoke out those words
threw out your keys
walked a mile to violence

my final day is far away i hope
the swells in the sea
won't swallow me

the sea and waves
won't help you change
the moon in the sky
won't cry tonight
and could it be true
you'd have done the same
spoke out those words
threw out your keys
walked a mile to violence

what would you do
what would you say
if it were you
Track Name: The Tourist Company - Shouldn't Believe (Radio Edit)
:: SHOULDN'T BELIEVE (RADIO EDIT) ::

Sweet-talk your lies into my ear with your secret spin
But know that I won’t give in again
Know that I won’t give in again
Flash all your magic your surprises are nothing new
And now that I won’t give in again
Know that I won’t give in again
You had your chance

You’re something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe

Hold my attention for a moment and then let go
And know that I won’t give in again
Know that I won’t give in again
Stay where you are

You’re something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe

We saw a future without flaw
But now I see you for what you are

For something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
something that I shouldn’t believe
Something that I shouldn’t believe, you are
You’re something that I shouldn’t believe
Track Name: Weak Creatures - Misunderstood
:: MISUNDERSTOOD ::

Maybe will you always show
and you'll always have a home with me
Baby would you even know
that you ever had a home with me
I know that you'll always give
and you'll show us all that we're free
Baby you are so far from owning me

When I lose myself and you always know where to find me

Sunday's running through your mind
that my home is plain and ugly
Drawing on your past disguise
that'll show us all what you mean
I know that you'll always give
but you'll never know your life with me

Baby will you always know that I'm free
Always know what's unseen
Always know what you need
Always know in light of me

When I lose myself and you always know where to find me
