Track Name: Lauren Smith - Under the Knife
"It's not your right to kill my pain
What you decided you turned to defamation claims

You are gone
Nowhere a garden grows inside
Now I am guarded
Don't make this mine, it's yours

Under the knife secure the chain
Discard our lives
It will defeat you someday

You are gone
Nowhere a garden grows inside
Now I am guarded
Don't make this mine, it's yours (x2)"
Track Name: Emily Brown - Phone
​Do you love me more than your phone?
I’m across the table but I’m all alone
Will you let me know when I should stay at home
Rolling loaves all on my lonesome

Sighing, vying for your time
in the misconception that a bit is mine
And I wish I didn’t have to stand in line
In an endless queue of strangers

News reporters at the Washington Post
Didn’t hone their words to write eternal scrolls
Though I know you love the one in front of your nose
Could you lift your eyes to see her?
Track Name: Goldmyth - Wait
Hours from the morning
Miles from asleep
Sway in the kitchen
To lights onTV

I’ll wait a little while
I’ll wait a little while
I’ll wait a little while
With you

Blanket of daylight
Rests on the sheets
Stretching the minutes
Watching you dream

I’ll wait a little while
I’ll wait a little while
I’ll wait a little while
For you
Track Name: Matthew Harrison - A Temperate Evening
"Summer nights
In the dead of winter
Keeping all your shadows
In the backseat of your car

Morning light
Blushes like a candle
I forget the reasons
Why I held my head to the side

If you could
If you would
Follow me

I learn
All about your breathing
All about your movement
And it’s just the same as mine

Feeling
Better, feeling quiet
I’m content with holding
What I hold right now in my hands

I’m afraid of losing
What I hold right now in my hands"
Track Name: Tom Brinton - I Work With People
"I work with people!
Yes, it's true.
Yes, I do.

I work for the police.
I work there with my niece.
She sits at the front desk.
I try to keep the peace.

I am a cook for the Navy.
Potatoes and gravy.

Hi there.
You can talk to me.
I have a degree in therapy.

I work with people!

I will work with you,
If you will work with me,
I will work with you."
Track Name: Ben Meyer - Buy More Things
"I count another one
Count another one
for some other son

Oh no another comes
Never wait, only go

I can deliver
keep us all together
if only for the weather

Hold on to all your things
and buy more rings
give me money

Can’t help another one
sell another gun
buy another tonne

Jeff’s store is making more and more and more and more
it’s always king
so buy more things

And I tell myself I’m never coming back until its gone

And you should just buy another one
and another one
and another one
and another one
and another one
and another one

You buy some things give me life give me money
Please buy more things buy me life give me money

You buy some things give me life give me money
Please buy more things buy me life buy me money

You buy some things give me life give me money
Please buy more things buy me life give me money"
Track Name: Bancho - Alms
"Where your treasure is, your heart is also
Is it the same when we are together?

Spending hours on your mother’s couch
Where is your love born?

A home less forgiving to some
stone-cold, quiver
in the luke warm bath

Do I make you mourn
For some care you needed when you were young?

Like a marble calf, arms open to none
Rich in spirit, but still giving up
With your back against the stone
Force me to care about the only one "
Track Name: Jake Lyman - I Feel Dumb
"Driving car across states
And I feel stressed about the plan
I am making Natalie sad
Because I’m not being a patient man

The love I have should mean more to me
Than routes in Google Sheets
Feels dumb to say that, but
I feel pretty dumb

I feel dumb"
Track Name: Company Vacation - It Weighs Off/On [sic] Me
That horror fantasy which comes on flights
and I tell Emily I do not fear——has not happened

My skin, that barometric, helps me understand
The way I die in bits and among friends

It weighs off me, on me—but has not happened

After all I am perishable
And cannot die and rise again in three

there is a far off season and in it I will die
The Lord will say upon it he’d been dying the whole time

It weighs off me, on me—but has not happened
Track Name: Crispy Iceberg Baby - Grim Reapstress
Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop, Doo Wop...I was saying - I will let you down. I love so hard, please don't try your pretty little things. I'll take you out back to space where we can understand that breath was just shallow taking. Try to keep your hands off, let's go now. Stop that heart it's loud and convoluted. Taking with me all of your old stories, what's the point if I'm all here alone. Sorry brother, wish you had another. But I sure do love you to the bone. (Repeats). (Spoken words over): Black dress, foreground, silver heart's on.
Track Name: Sebastian Meyer - Just Those Jeans
"I can't resist you, lady.
You caught me with those eyes.

But now I'm getting shaky
Cause you're temptation in disguise.

Did I fall in love with you
Or just those high heeled shoes?
Did I see you in a dream,
Or maybe it's just those jeans?

You've been running round in my head
Theres just something I cant explain
How someone with such pleasure
Can also bring the pain

Did I fall in love with you
Or just those high heeled shoes?
Did I see you in a dream,
Or maybe it's just those jeans?
On the other hand,
I know you like I'm in the band.
So I guess it evens out,
Might as well sell it out."
Track Name: D+R - No One to Tell You What to Do
"Pick up the slack
Show you how mad I can be
Living alone
No one but decade old TV shows

I have no one to hold me close
And you have no one to tell you what to do

I left you a note
The kind where all of the i’s each have hearts
To tell you I dream of you only when we are apart

Oh, how I tried to say
Before you left, I’ll fix it
But all that came out that day
Was no just please forget it

I have no one to hold me close
And you have no one to tell you what to do

Oh, how I tried to say
Before you left, I’ll fix it
But all that came out that day
Was no just please forget it

I have no one to hold me close
And you have no one to tell you what to do
"
Track Name: Lindenfield - About Us (stripped down)
"We used to talk on the phone
We used to tell each other jokes
We used to care what we said
We used to kiss before bed

We used to lie on the beach
We used to share each other's dreams
But now we don't anymore
And I don't know what I'm waiting for

Cause you don't know me…now
And I don’t no I don't…want to change a thing
About us

We only care about money
We only care about drugs
We only care about sex and bodies
We don't care about our love

I only care about money
I only care about drugs
I only care about sex and bodies
Don't give a shit about us x2

We used to care what ate
We used to think all this was fate
We used to make each other weak
But now we make each other fall asleep

I used to laugh when we fought
You used to never get caught
Now I don't care anymore
Never will you be the one I'm waiting for
