1. Aché – Stars or Me
Star light star bright
Falling from the sky to our heads
Satelitte in the sky like a diamond, piercing my eye and retina always

2. Five Stars for Failure – Fired
I’ve made my mark building walls to block your head start bleed right through
what but didn’t rake quite thin over how to get this far down without crowding lines
We walk the way the way we walk this far down.

3. Joshua Fit for Battle – Detication
Why don’t you leave me alone? You don’t even know me.
We have nothing in common you fuck.

4. Knives and Greenwater – On Horsell Common

5. Landed – Untitled

6. Lycosa – Lycobra Command
Once again we return to fight another day. With one foot in the gutter and the other in the grave. Newly found science gives way to the cobra, serpent and spider hand and hand with the nostra. Scanning the horizon for fresh souls to collect.
Stygian structures again we shall erect. Seeds of sacreligion sowed deep within our heads. You’ve heard it before because it’s said “They call us walking corpses – unholy living dead.” Walk through these streets with us, you’re destined to see shit so fucked up, too fucked up to believe. And arachnid assault and a moral decline. Our souls stained so black as if the sun ceased to shine. I.c.c. in full effect (?)
We think for ourselves and for nobody else.
Our skills in demand, we are lycobra command.

7. Numbers are Neutral – Fedaykin
We must recognize sand drawn lines for what they are worth, nothing.
Faltered. Falling. I hope you realize your fortitude. Arise. Unlearn. Rebuild.
These are the pieces we are given. Laid out before us. How we put them together is up to us. Redefine. Kill these false ideas of gender roles.
Of what it is to be a man or a woman.

8. Off Minor – Visible Distance

9. Neil Perry –
September 15th, City Lights and the Clouds That Suck Them Dry
Don’t think I forgive. Don’t think I forget. Don’t think this ever will be the end.
It’s all I’ve ever cried for. Please don’t do this to me.
You’re the dreams I used to wish for, please don’t do this to me.
Used to wish for… used to wish for…
Feel this… push through me feel… everything.
I know you’ll never be the one to do this to me.

10. Pg.99 – Mary Get Your Knife
Remember the time they followed a safe distance. It was a safe distance, and the beating never stopped. The beaten, the barren, the prosperous, the people, burned, drowned, died, they all died, in silence.

11. Racebannon – The Boy in the Bathtub
My boyfriend is something else. And your girl is something too. I saw them both on the big screen shifting to 2nd gear. Both starts of filmland have stopped breathing over broken legs (just give them time to heal). I wish I were those monsters in all of these movies. Maybe this knife will change your mind, I thought that maybe it would. You’ll never believe what happened to me today, I got hit with stones (over a million times) so I’ll stare you down and I’ll give you griefbut I’ll throw back the stones anyway. Cause I’m a cowboy.

12. The Assistant – F.orever A.ngry at M.y I.nner L.ove for Y.ou
I am not the same child that you’ve always known. It was my innocence that you took when you threw me on the bed. When do you start believing me? My face has been beaten with enough tears. My strength has been weakened far too long. When is it going to be my turn to take control of myself? Don’t you accuse me of this. I can’t be denied. Do you love me? It was his hands that touched me. It was his hands that hurt me. He may lie but I know the truth. You try to blame me but it was not me. It’s been 14 years. You took something you can’t return. Why? Why? Why? You gave me this aggression. You gave me something that I never wanted. Those pieces of you are now pieces of me.

13. The Awakened – Put on Ice
As endless souls are ripped from this earth, I stop to ask myself what have we accomplished. As endless souls are ripped from this earth I ask myself why no.
Don’t fool yourself, because you can’t feel anymore.
I’m so cold. So cold. I can’t wake up and I know it.
I should have done more. Much more (now I’m cold).

14. The Car Cable Theory – Second Guessing
This silence kills. Like poison pill, it eats you from the inside. Rescue me, I’m drowning in the death of everything believed. Always second guessing whatever comes my way. I guess the circumstances stacked the cards that way. Rescue me. This silence kills. It’s a poison pill and it’s eating me from the inside. I wish you could see it’s effect on me, but by now you’re far too jaded.

15. The Keyboard Masters – Is That a Bichon Frise, Young Man?
no lyrics

16. The Scarlet Letter –
I’m Just a Lonely Bumblebee and That’s the Way I Like It
It would seem pointless to say that I’m a tortured soul, It’s nothing as grandiose or romantic as all that. I merely feel horribly empty inside and I’m trying to convey the complete hollowness I feel. An attempt to explain why I’m such a contemptible asshole, keep in mind it’s not an excuse or an apology – No, it’s far too late for that. Collapsing, inwards into myself onto the floor inside my mind completely exhausted in the search for the stability I’ll never fucking find. It’s like a fuckin’ schizophrenic lullaby, I want to sing hello but I always scream “goodbye” To anyone willing to deal with the mess of my overwhelming self-imposed Chernobyl loneliness. (I think I’m going insane) How did I ever end up like this? Please pull me from the abyss, No! Let me fall away into my new home, I think I want to fuckin’ die alone (leave me the fuck alone).

17. The Vidablue – So the Pirate Says

18. Thursday – This Side of Brightness
I sewed it up Stitched all these dead end streets
Into the sewn up seams of my heartstrings unwind (unwound)
Like a petal pulled from an open flower.
Surrounds by fields where children sign but don’t make a sound and don’t
Break it off
This searching for what we may never find
And that says it all.
I hope that we will make it through..
The heartbreak that comes with just living through one day
All the good times that past and all the friends we lose in a lifetime on our way.
Here in this life we seem so lost.
On this side of brightness we don’t know where to go.
I hope that we can make it
Through this night.

19. The Dream of Autumn –  The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster
Poison fought with poison. A bible of prescriptions kept close for comfort, kept close for substitution, when no one, nothing, was near enough to give her words of purpose and destination, when the moon dissapeared.
One word. One pill changed everything. She let it slip. She let it take her.
As she took them. Diagnosis creates desease.
“You’re going to die,” the doctor said.
“I’m dead.”
