Track Name: Resolve (Intro)
Tim:
I don't wanna waste all of my time
with you, feeling terribly misconstrued
You know that I'm just a fool.
If I stay and remain how I am,
then I know that tomorrow's hopeless.
Time exists just to slip from my hands,
and it's telling me that I must take action.
But I've done this for too long,
standing silent and withdrawn
waiting for something to come
and try to save me.

Hazel:
I may always be waiting
for the other shoe to drop,
but I'll look good while I do,
and when it happens I'll be there.
When I'm somewhere cold,
bitching about the cold,
and I don't want to see a soul,
I'm not my best.
I'm alright.

Nicky:
Self-critical treatment
For once, just set aside
Just write some kind words
Let yourself love in spite.
All you have is what you leave behind
Might as well plant some flowers
Make this place look nice
Track Name: Tim Lindsay - Hands On My Shoulders
Guiding lights
And those uphold me
Lifting me with confidence
With their hands on my shoulders
Holding tight
To bonds I’ve created
That embrace me so graciously
Their hands latched on my shoulders

I’d make the time, and I’d even bear the load
But it was hard to find, just someone I could lean on
Weighted down, by the burdens I imposed
So I would fall again, to display what I’ve endured

As my will declines, flashes of fellow spirits surround me
Blinded and lost, couldn’t see all of their love around me

Guiding lights
And those uphold me
Lifting me with confidence
With their hands on my shoulders
Holding tight
To bonds I’ve created
That embrace me so graciously
Their hands latched on my shoulders

Spell my name, there’s the writing on the wall
Tested phrase that denotes I’m senseless
Can’t resign to the image in my mind
Throw my trust into family solace
Eyes that glare with a tablespoon of faith
Restore me when I’m heading nowhere
Rising star, I got fingers on arms
Pulling me from beyond corruption

Honest comfort, fall to rest my head
Caught by all of my friends, they hold me so close
No more room for lonely pursuits
Reassuring consolation

Guiding lights
And those uphold me
Lifting me with confidence
With their hands on my shoulders
Holding tight
To bonds I’ve created
That embrace me so graciously
Their hands latched on my shoulders
Track Name: Petalfold - Flag Burner
It's unspeakable
How blind I was
To discomfort
It was always right there
Living in my friends

Down
They glide
White knights
Cashed their twisted checks

The devil is in what's straight ahead
Dead dream logic gave you faith

The greatest lie I've ever been fed
New year. New you.
Foundational solitude
Ball and chain, keep on you
"It's loaded, but harmless"
"Eat the ground", you monsters.

"Keep it christian"
Day-to-Day demons crash through your doors

The devil is in what's straight ahead
Dead dream logic gave you faith

Peek under the blindfold
If you're comfortable
you're complicit
Burn their flags
Crush the clay
Track Name: Watermelodic - Things I Wish I'd Known
Everyday
the past is miles more away.
I know I’m running out of time,
but least I’m sleeping soundly.

In some ways,
it feels like starting back at one,
and mending holes was never fun,
but better late than never.

I’d
sooner die
than waste another minute
feeling lonely.

I know, I know, I know
but I never listen.
So it goes, so it goes, so it goes
I guess I’ll keep on trying.

Everyday
I know myself a little more.
It’s funny how the years can dull,
and I was fading with them.

In some ways
I wish I’d known this all along,
but now I’m writing down this song,
so guess I learned my lesson.

I know, I know, I know
but I never listen.
So it goes, so it goes, so it goes
'cus I just keep on trying.
Track Name: Gabriel - Tied to a Pole
Tied to a pole

Your pretty sentiments
Those golden fingertips
Will be convinced to tap upon the rim of my glass

Where hopeful words
Or thoughts that cut and burn
Swirl in a cloudy mix that will be pressed to your lips

So hold your throat
And do not let words choke
What could I have to say now that could make this okay

So pardoned wherever you may go
Remember that you bring every part of yourself
Your anger and your love are not opposed wholes
But pieces that find equal station in your soul

So do not what I do
Only what I say
I'm a hypocrite it's true
It will all be okay
So do not what I do
Only what I say

But I'm pretty tied to a pole
So do not what I do
Only what I say
I'm hypocrite it's true
I will tell you it will all be okay
There is hope yet in life dont wish it all way
Dont throw it down a well save it for me
I would like to help but I'm tied to a pole
And my sentiments tied to a pole are pretty now
Track Name: KF Kid & STUF - Mattress Song
The warranty is up
It’s been 25 years and I’ve lost a lot of sleep
I’ve rolled miles in my bed
Slept side to side
On my back on my belly
Feet against the headrest

I can’t ever make up my mind
To lay my head or soul to rest
So I sleep on it
Again and again and again

I have spent a third of a quarter of a century
On a piece of foam that remembers me
But at least I have a legacy

I can’t ever make up my mind
whether to lay my head or soul to rest
Track Name: Andy Mercer & Little Fields - Witches' Magic
At the academy,
Studying anatomy
You was my fantasy,
I was your calamity.....
I'll stop the clocks each time you call
You wasn't adding me,
Is this how is has to be?
Looking right past me
......Like I vanished with a spell

Like I vanished with a spell
Like I vanished by your spell
Like I'm here all by myself

Thought I charmed you,
But you never made it clear
But I lost you
And you'll never reappear
And my heart too
Because I just want you near
Which is magic
Witches' magic

Got your memory out the frame
The city speaks of fame
One day they'll know my name
But I should walk away
I'll have to wait till day
Midnight blue in place
A market place
...of illusion

Thought I charmed you,
But you never made it clear
But I lost you
And you'll never reappear
And my heart too
Because I just want you near
Which is magic
Witches' magic

Witches’ magic
Track Name: Twinkle Park - Probably Inevitable
Don't get me wrong,
I'm content with being an asshole and feeling like shit,
but is it too much to ask for a change of scenery?
Well, surely I can't be the only one with this problem.
Do they talk about me when I'm not around?
I know it’s stupid to think that I'm any more important than anyone else.
If not me, who could I be?
I can't tell if the world is big or small,
but I hope it leaves my friends alone.
I won't act like I'm not still traumatized.
Just because we joke about it doesn't mean we're not kept up at night.
Yeah, okay, I'm still not over it.
We rest our heads on thinning pillows,
I reflect on which friends I've seen crying.
In the winter, I hoped I'd see you. In the summer, I wanted to die.
Maybe that's just how I remember it.
Sometimes I think that I miss you.
Track Name: Larksburg - You're Naked
You come to
And realize what’s unimaginable and what’s just a cartoon
Unfazed by bold reasoning you walk on
And know
You’re not wrong
You walk on and know that you’re not wrong

You come to me
Enough times to get the drill
And revel in it still
Because your relapse is something
we’ve both gotten over
So now we can look at each other
And know

Something’s going on

These are your hands
Press them in the mud
These are your hands
They’re there too in the earth
These are you hands
Press them in the mud
These are your hands they’re there too

I study your face
I know nothing bad is gonna happen
I study your face
And I know you don’t wanna hurt me

Now you’re naked
And nothing bad is gonna happen
You’re naked
And no one wants to hurt you
you’re
