Track Name: Bancho - Black Fly
"Resting on the doorframe
It’s the coughing in the night
and opening your eyes wide

The best way to part, and you go-
let it settle before making the damaging blow

Mark the ones to leave behind
Steaming breath
Still fall short of the line

Black fly
Boring out of both my eyes

Standing on the corner with no reception
I can feel deeply those lost connections
I hardly recognize my own reflection



Play your part, and it will go
one more hour and we’re through
It feels so volatile to choose

Burning from this thought:
All attention to the fire!
“I am not what I want”

Mark the ones to leave behind
Steaming breath
Still fall short of the line

Black Fly
Boring out of both my eyes

Standing on the corner with no reception
I can feel deeply those lost connections
I hardly recognize my own reflection "
Track Name: Tad Wagner - Fault Line
Whatever came to be
if that's what you want
to know who you are
the river is flowing
it’s the great unknowing

throwing out the line
fasten it up
just give it some time
you know what you’re knowing
and you know where you’re going

whatever came to be
we live on a fault line
when you sing to me
we’ll have the last line

rolling out tonight
to say what you want
to be who you are
a slight untwisting
the weight is lifting

holding out the light
open it up, see what’s inside
the Hi that you gave me
the saving that saved me

whatever came to be
we live on a fault line
when you sing to me
we’ll have the last line

whatever came to be
we live on a fault line
when you sing to me
we’ll have the last line

when you sing to me
Track Name: Jake Lyman - Arlene
"What if I'm wrong about the dead?
What if they die and then they're gone?
So when Arlene says she thinks
She's ready to pass away
I don't think that's a very funny joke, Grandma"
Track Name: Lauren Smith - Creative Hate
"We meet again so hide away where we spawn creative hate
Like Dirty Projectors we can expect it
We try not to remember the shit we accepted

Until our hate's so potent, it’s coming on too strong

Enlist our pawn to set a date
I’ve spent my days in isolation
We still feel connected, as we suspected
No longer dejected but still unaccepted

Until our hate’s so potent it’s coming on too strong
Hate so potent, it’s coming on too strong"
Track Name: Company Vacation - Continental Drift
I can hear you hanging pots and moving rags, cracking eggs
Making continental drift, and sifting salt off precipice
I remember, fragile name, you said yourself a trembling bird
Every day repeats this way, today it feels a little worse

Cause I'm in doubt
That things ever change

When I wake up I feel again
The pressing weight of day

Light along the shelf keeps pushing dust between the blinds
Using all my human strength wipe cornflakes from my eyes
It doesn’t help there were late drinks at Kingfish out on Telegraph
Running late from reminiscing on all things that I’ve done wrong

[part c ooh ahh]

And like a song
unwritten in my mind,

I hoped the words would grow enough to exit in good time
Track Name: Matthew Harrison - Close
"Suddenly
The horror of my life
I want to see you

I’m holding a fire
Close to the wound
At night
To see what is new

Have you been alright?
(They’re on hold on the other line)
Have you been around?
I would never know

Hi
I want to tell you that I’m here
Soft and terrified
When I can’t hear you

Have you been alright?
(They’re on hold on the other line)
Have you been around?
I would never know"
Track Name: Eli Scheer - Make It Good
"Ok, I admit—I was going five or maybe six over
But I promise you that I was sober and that part’s true.
Passing your sedan with a little one riding behind you
Afternoon sun trying to blind you, well it got me, too.

There, up ahead, disembarking from the back of a truck bed…

You swerved to the right
I could see the fear take over her smile
In an instant it was gone like a wave—so unstoppable
The guard rail to my left and the strength of my momentum
Launched me back in your direction, unstoppable

Trying to lead by example
Always did the best I could
Still I believe
Given one more chance I’d finally make it good
I’d make it good
I’d make it good

You pulled yourself out and she wrapped her arms around you in silence
Twisted metal, broken glass, and then sirens and the end of youth
If it had to be me or her then I’m glad that it’s over
I hope she does her best when she gets older
With every lesson that you ever told her how to make it good
How to make it good
How to make it good
How to make it
"
Track Name: Jared Gay - The Wire, Season 4
"I've been watching the wire
For two whole months now
I am on Season 4
Which everyone I know adores

How much life will I spend
Watching tv shows in bed?
Some would call this time a waste
But relating to my peers
Comes first for me
It's part of living happily - for me

Please don't get me wrong
I value what my heart wants
With entertainment
And all of this time spent
I hope that it helps me
To know the hearts of my friends

In this show,
Baltimore,
Things are rough
Makes me sad
What a lens
To see through
Is it true?
Does it matter?

Empathy is a big deal to me
Because I want to be friends
With everyone, isn't that weird?
Maybe it's not true,
But if it's a lie,
It's a lie I prefer to believe

Please don't get me wrong
I value what my heart wants
With entertainment
And all of this time spent
I hope that it helps me
To know the hearts of my friends"
