Track Name: Ominous Ride - Maiden Trip
Pacing down at the edge of the dock
Never been off this monochrome rock
Bought my ticket to make the escape
That is no longer only a word on the tip of my tongue

The first wave washes over me
For the moment still moored to the land
The stories I thought would have painted a map
But I know where I'm headed is out of my hands

Let the tether fall
And push away
I tell myself
I'm never going to be the same
As I drift farther from the safety of the shore
A million doors open
And before I see where they go

I am free
I am swallowed
I am beautiful
I am out of control
Take me
How will I ever get home

The mirror can only disguise what I see
(Shall I peel my face away)
Caught in a loop that envelopes the peace
(Can't turn it off, can't make it stop)
Here it comes again

Let the tether fall
And push away
I tell myself
I'm never going to be the same
As I drift farther from the safety of the shore
A million doors open
And before I see where they go

I am caught
I'm enlightened
I'm expendable
I am more than I was before
Save me
How will I ever get home
Track Name: Jailhouse Payback - First Time Caller
I'm a first time caller
long time listener
I'm a first time lover
long time drinker
this was my last time trying
my last time believing in you
it's true

it was a cold december evening in my pickup
it was the last night with my first love you see
I found a letter that had fallen from your coat
it said "i love you", but it wasn't from me

so i'm calling, mr. D.J., to ask you
Is there a way to take away this pain
Because i'm crying and drink in' and I'm going insane
because the letter was signed my best friend's name

so I'm a first time caller
long time listener
I'm a first time lover
long time drinker
this was my last time trying
my last time believing in you
it's true

so you people listening on the A.M. radio
Take this as a warning
i hope that it makes sense
Keep your lover close
and don't look in her coat
And never introduce her to your friends
Track Name: Mark Humble - The First Time You Broke My Heart
I did not see the knife when you twisted it deep into me, love
Making a secret scar
Though I fought for my life I was gone, too gone to leave, love
The first time you broke my heart

The first time you broke my heart
I walked out your door
Then I crawled back for more
The first time you broke my heart

My eyes in the blue were a cloud filling with rain, love
Refusing to fall apart
So I lied, next to you I was proud and hid in the pain, love
The first time you broke my heart

The first time you broke my heart
I walked out your door
Then I crawled back for more
The first time you broke my heart

Every time I'd try to move along
My love for you grew twice as strong
Love is wild that’s the rule
Someone’s gonna play the fool

the first time you broke my heart
I walked out your door
Then I crawled back for more
The first time you broke my heart
Track Name: James Young - Alone
Finally I see the the truth
I'm no longer blinded by youth
I'm sick and I'm tired and I've nothing left to prove
I can't even blame this on you

It's the first time that I've really felt alone
I'm lying here beside you on my own
I wanted to believe in us but guess I should have known
The first time that I've really felt alone

Nothing's forever you know
We've got no room left to grow
We drive and we drive but we're running out of road
Let's go through the motions for show

It's the first time that I've really felt alone
I'm lying here beside you on my own
I wanted to believe in us but guess I should have known
The first time that I've really felt alone

There's nothing left to say
I can't make this go away
Too many reasons not to stay
Too few to go

Time heals all wounds so they say
Still slowly we're fading to grey
We duck and we dive in this game we've got to play
Because there is no other way

It's the first time that I've really felt alone
I'm lying here beside you on my own
I wanted to believe in us but guess I should have known
The first time that I've really felt alone
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - Fool Me Once
Live your life, live without concern
For those who’d love you
Twist the knife, I feel my stomach churn
All because you

Fool me once, the ceiling starts to drop
The friend I thought I knew was just a prop
Your indiscretions set signals afire
Our need to trust, it’s making us all liars

I saw your monuments toppled in the streets
That wasn’t even close to just
I saw you shrug off your defeat
You never said you were someone to trust

You got everything you want

Fool me once, iit all starts coming apart
Why do we keep breaking our own hearts?

Surely wouldn’t want my soul
beneath this microscope
Where the moment you spot the truth
Is when you start losing hope
You saved my life and set me right
That’s the story that will prevail
Deserved or not, we’ll forgive
This first betrayal

Fool me once, the ceiling starts to drop
The friend I thought I knew was just a prop
Fool me once it all starts coming apart
Why do we keep breaking our own hearts?

You’ll get everythning you want
Track Name: Glen Raphael - First Time (Phantom Menace)
Jar Jar blinks
Qui-Gon is gone
Whatever Lucas thinks is so clean but oddly empty
Nothing going on
There are trade negotiations
There are Jedi meditations
Can't bring myself to care, because

The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars
The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars

They can race on desert planets
They can dive beneath the core
What I need is decent acting
What I want is something more
They can draw a thousand robots fighting ships in outer space
But no CGI can fix the look of boredom on my face

The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars
The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars

Jar Jar blinks
Qui-Gon is gone
Whatever Lucas thinks is so clean but oddly empty
Nothing going on

The first time
The first time
That I saw Phantom Menace
Was the last time I trusted Star Wars
Track Name: Edric Haleen - How It All Began
In late eighty-nine,
In the band room in high school,
A friend and I sat
In the band teacher’s office
To listen to something
The band teacher said we should hear.

At first it was just a guy talking
And sounds of applauding
As people bought
Lots at an auction,
And why this might int’rest
The two of us still wasn’t clear.

Sure, event’ally somebody
Started to sing,
But the song and the music
Weren’t really my thing,
‘Cause it mostly just sounded
Like recitative,
And I wasn’t impressed,
And I wished I could leave,
But the band teacher’s sitting there
Fully engrossed,
And to leave now would feel like
Deserting our host.
And I don’t even notice
He’s bumping the volume to “high” . . .

<MUSIC>

And before high school was over,
I’d bought ev’ry cast album
Andrew Lloyd Webber had written!

Then . . .

In March, ninety-three,
I go home for Spring Break
And I visit my fam’ly
And go see Evita,
Then on to Chicago
Where I’m gonna see Miss Saigon.

The mom of a friend
Who I stayed with insisted on
Getting us tickets to
Some other show
With a weird-sounding name
In the suburbs some thirty miles on.

So I wasn’t that thrilled
About having to go.
And we hit a raccoon
As we drove to the show.
And the theatre’s staging
This show in the round.
And it seems we’ll be stuck
With inferior sound,
‘Cause the orchestra’s
Off in some separate room
Looking in through a window,
And I just assume
I’ll be mis’rable
As the lights dim and we get underway . . .

<MUSIC>

And before college was over,
I’d gone out and bought
Ev’ry cast album Sondheim wrote, too!

It’s amazing how something can grab you.
It can reach in your brain
And then never let go
And expose you to so many things
You might never have known . . .

Then . . .

In early two thousand,
I finally purchased
The debut CD
Of one Audra MacDonald . . .

<MUSIC>
Track Name: Emperor Gum - Leaving
First time I left Lancashire
And last time I was there
Took a carriage to Liverpool
With no last fanfare
As I gazed out the window
At the hills and lakes of my home
I made my last memories
Before I went to roam

First time in America
First time overseas
Buy a future in Tennessee
With Lancastrian fees

My Da' worked the common land
Taught me how to grow
In the fields that his father worked
With a plough and a hoe
Now that there's no work for farmers
When there's sheep who'll pay a man more
So I'm going to work in the New World
Now England's no land for the poor

First time in America
First time overseas
Buy a future in Tennessee
With Lancastrian fees

First time on a sailboat
I was sick all the way
First time drinking rum, first time feeling glum
Now I was away
Then an old man took out a fiddle
And he played all the old songs I knew
And I cried for merry old England
As she vanished from view

First time in America
First time overseas
Buy a future in Tennessee
With Lancastrian fees

For a year I have worked here
Two more left to go
To pay off the passage here
I'll reap and I'll sow
They say its better to die
On your feet than live on your knees
But better an indentured servant
Than a starving man who is free

First time in America
First time overseas
Buy a future in Tennessee
With Lancastrian fees
Track Name: Jon Eric - Perry's Song (Everybody's Waiting)
Hey little partridge, little potpourri
Still inside your mama's belly, brewing like a tea
I know that you don't know me yet, and you're barely yet complete
But there's some people here you need to meet...

Everybody's waiting for everything to change
Everybody's waiting and I've never felt so strange
What you gonna look like? Will your eyes be brown or blue?
Our lives are never gonna be the same when we have you

No, our lives are never gonna be the same when we have you

Hey, listen children, pull up a chair
Your mom and I have got some news we'd like to share
I know you're happy here, but this town has too many scars
And we deserve a place that's truly ours...

Our lives are never going to be the same
No, they'll never be quotidian and lame
As perfect as a portrait in its shame
It's such a shame
What we became

Hey pterodactyl, sit with me a while
I still remember that first time I saw your smile
Days can feel like years to me, and years can feel like days
I still remember when we'd say...

No, our lives are never gonna be the same when we have you
No our lives are never gonna be the same
When we have you
Track Name: Ross Durand - Premiere
So many seats, so many people
So many sounds, it’s like a cathedral
With a red velvet curtain and lobby chandeliers

The players tune up, the lights go down
The curtain rises, I think that I’ve found
A new kind of paradise, I only want to be here

And the lines that are spoken, and the songs that are sung
And the stories they are telling are leaving me hung
On every word and on every exit and entrance
Of the leading roles and the chorus and the stagehands
And the costumes and the lights and though it just began
The lights come back up

So may thoughts, so many feelings
Paisley in the carpets, carvings in the ceiling
That I can’t help but stare at while I wait for intermission to end

The actors return, the story resumes
Another act, that ends too soon but
The characters seem to think they have said all that needs to be said
(or do they?)

But the lines that were spoken, and the songs that were sung
And the story they were telling left me hung
On every word and on every exit and entrance
Af the leading roles and the chorus and the stagehands
And the costumes and the lights and though it just began
The lights come back up

The curtain comes down, applause fills the air
I begin to realize soon I won’t be there
Anymore with these characters, suspending my disbelief
But I know I believe that
I will be here again
I know I believe that
I will be here again
Track Name: Pigfarmer Jr - Kill A Man
I signed my name on the dotted line
More than happy to serve my time
To make a stand for freedom and democracy
To save the world, to keep us free

I joined the army to do what's right
And they trained me to win the fight
I marched for miles, learned to shoot a gun
I learned to fight, to get the job done

And I pulled the trigger a thousand times
Never a once thought it was a crime
'Cause I'm trained to kill the enemy
All in the name of Democracy

But the very first time I shot a man
Is the very moment I came to understand
We're not fighting for democracy
We're fighting for profit, that's our policy

I pulled the trigger for the thousandth time
And then I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the very last time
Because I killed a man
Because I killed a man

They send us all off to fight a war
To uphold the oath that we swore
They send us to fight for uncle Sam
When will we learn that it's all a sham?

'Cause we drop bombs and cause misery
Nothing to do with Democracy
We go and fight and kill the common folk
'Cause war is for profit, what a joke

I pulled the trigger for the thousandth time
And then I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the very last time
Because I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the thousandth time
And then I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the very last time
Because I killed a man
Because I killed a man
Track Name: Megalodon - My Foolish Mind
My first swim lesson was disastrous
When I ventured to the deep end
My instructor neglected to state the obvious

Betrayed by my foolish mind
I took a deep breath of water
And almost died

My chest started to hurt
I yearned for something in my lungs
So I overrode my instinct and took a gulp

Betrayed by my foolish mind
I took a deep breath of water
And almost died

Nobody told me you can't breathe under under water
Nobody told me you cannot breath under any water
x4

(I shouldn't have found out the hard way)
x7

My dad was watching from the bleachers
In this South Salt Lake high school pool
He dove in , pulled me out, still wearing slacks and sneakers

Betrayed by my foolish mind
I took a deep breath of water
And almost died

Betrayed by my foolish mind
I took a deep breath of water
And almost died
Track Name: Ellie Sparrow - Footprints On The Moon
To reach out for the stars
To hold the little dreams
To watch the world float by
Would be a pleasure

Hold on to your seats
And ask the Gods for mercy
To push through things never known

Journey for the footsteps on the moon
Turn away now, stop watching
Nothing holding you back just the dreams
Of everybody stuck at ground control

Everything goes fast
When you get of the ride to notice
Only silence to fill the void

And you know you should not be starstruck
But you've been watching them all your life
But you feel so close
They might explode

Journey for the footsteps on the moon
Turn away now, stop watching
Nothing holding you back just the dreams
Of every stuck at ground control

The panic sets in
As the air lock is sealed
And you realise
Your out here on your own

Making the first footprints on the moon
Everybody watching the whole world is watching
Nothing holding you down
Cos they're celebrating at ground control
Celebrating at ground control
Track Name: Steve Durand - Original Sin
In the beginning
Darkness was upon the face of the deep
And God said “let there be light”
And there was light
And God created Heaven and Earth
And God created the Sun, Moon, and Stars
And God created plants and animals
And he looked at his creation and saw that it was good
Then God created man
Who screwed it all up

At first
Everything was perfect
The whole world
All shiny and new

Then Eve
Got tempted by a serpent
To eat the fruit
That God said was taboo

She fell prey
To the snake’s seduction
A smoother talker
There has never been

So she became
The Eve of our destruction
When she committed
That original sin

So we
Got kicked out of the garden
‘Cause Adam ate it too
Much to his chagrin

Mankind
Got a sentence with no pardon
High price to pay
for that original sin

It’s said
Forbidden fruit tastes sweeter
It’s always tempting
To take a little bite

But it ain’t fair
To be labeled as a cheater
It’s hard to be good
When you don’t know wrong from right

So next time
You tell me that I blew it
And that
I went astray again

I’ll just say
The devil made me do it
It’s on account of that
Original sin

It’s said
Forbidden fruit tastes sweeter
It’s always tempting
To take a little bite

But it ain’t fair
To be labeled as a cheater
It’s hard to be good
When you don’t know wrong from right

So next time
You tell me that I blew it
And that
I went astray again

I’ll just say
The devil made me do it
‘Cause I’ve been tainted
By original sin
Track Name: Adam Sakellarides - Have You Heard?
I had been able to shirk it for so long
though I could not avoid its dreaded name
I had heard stories of the long nights with long fights
this phrase lives on infame

I had been able to shirk it for so long
That it became a point of pride
But now I sit with my girlfriend and her family
And they pass to me a dish of this dreaded side

Holy wow
I love Brussel sprouts
God damn
I must scream and shout
Have you heard
I love Brussel sprouts

(Father: Get down from the table!)

’Tis only human to have fear of the unknown
A strong component of fight of flight
But you’ll never know if you could like something you fear
If you drown it in olive oil you might

(Father: Ugh! Not again!)

Holy shit
I love Brussel sprouts
God damn
I must scream and shout
Have you heard
I love Brussel sprouts

Broccoli was suggested once to me
But the florets got stuck in my teeth
Squash too squishy and cauliflower’s a bore
When it came to veggies I'd no idea what was in store

Holy wow
I love Brussel sprouts
God damn
I must scream and shout
Have you heard
I love brussel sprouts

(Father: I don't care how much you love him, you can't see him anymore)
Track Name: Sam Rodewald - My First Song Will Be
Grab a blank page and my brand new guitar
I'm gonna write my first song,
and you can bet
it will be perfect

Take a deep breath and I straighten my chair
I've gott have it just right
cause you can bet
it will be perfect

Put on the coffee pot
make sure it's nice and hot
you know I should have thought
but i can't work without a little

I'll turn the TV on
but keep the volume down
or i'll just see what's on
It wouldn't hurt to take a little break

First things first, I'm just gonna make me a snack
and then I'll write my first song
and you can bet
it will be perfect

pen in hand I just need to tune my guitar
I've got to get it just right
so you can bet
it will be perfect

And what I'm thinking next,
i better send a text
just want to double check
so let me know what you are up to

well i don't mean to brag
cause that is such a drag
but wait for the reveal,
this song is gonna be a big deal.

but I don't know how to write a song.

No i don't know how to write a song.

Some day I'm gonna grab my guitar
I'm gonna write my first song
and you can bet it will be.
Track Name: Jeff Brown - The First Time
I've been staring at the wall
Until the stones burn in my eyes
For the climb before the fall
For the clouds before the skies

I wonder how we got this far
I couldn't see your lies from truth
So when you told me that you don't love me too
That was the first time I believed you

If we forget, we're human, though
We are forgive we are divine
Into the garden we would go
But the fruit would wither on the vine

I wonder how we got this far
I couldn't see your lies from truth
So when you told me that you don't love me too
That was the first time I believed you
Track Name: "BucketHat" Bobby - Free To Be Me
Finding a way in the world,
hoping that, someday, I'll get the girl,
and the job and the fame I've always felt I was owed.

Worked all my life to carve a space,
that fits my form, to have a place,
where I could be praised for reaping the seeds I've sowed

But for the first time,
that's not my concern.
I'm resolved to know,
I'm never getting my turn.

I was appealing to my vanity,
But now, I think, I finally see.
For the first time, I'm free to just be me,

I had a dream, and chased it,
but all that time was wasted.
And now I leave it behind to start from scratch.

But I didn't quit, I fought.
It was never quite what I thought.
No matter how hard I tried, I can't make a match.

But for the first time,
I don't even care.
I've spent enough time,
just pulling out my hair.

I was appealing to my vanity,
But now, I think, I finally see.
For the first time, I'm free to just be me,

Yeah, for the first time,
I'm not even concerned.
I'm resolved to know,
I'm never getting my turn.

I was appealing to my vanity,
But now, I think, I finally see.
For the first time, I'm free to just be me.
Track Name: Rob From Amersfoort - The First Time You Die
This is not a game
You play again and again
Actions have consequences
(cause and effect)

And when it’s too late
You close your eyes
Too late to cry
The first time you die

The first time you die
The first time you die
The first time you die

You may think
You will reincarnate
But your unholy life
Has sealed your fate

Death is the ultimate purpose of life
Everything will decay someday
Enjoy it while you can

The first time you die
The first time you die
The first time you die

The first time you die
The first time you die
The first time you die
Track Name: Keen Sid - Never Done That Before
We've never done that before
It's something that we should ignore
But that's not that easy to do

We'll not feel the same given time
The vodka, the soda, the lime
Was probably speaking for you

I'm not concerned with the why or the how
I'm feeling all that my feelings allow
Feels like I ain't really seen you 'til now

I can't pretend I feel worse
But now's not the time to rehearse
For what might not ever be real

We'll not feel the same given space
Our hands are all over the place
That's pretty hard to conceal

I'm not concerned with the why or the how
I'm yelling all of my feelings out loud
Feels like I ain't really seen you 'til

One day I'll wake up, you'll not be around
I'll probably pretend I'm not even let down
Feels like I ain't really seen you til now
Track Name: The Boffo Yux Dudes - First Wurst
When life starts to get crushin’
I recall what my daddy said
“Don’t you know that fools just rush in
Where wise men fear to tread”

I’ve heard it said by people
That you gotta trust your gut
I’d like it all to be so simple
I wish that I could, but

First is the worst
And last is the best
If you go before you know
You’re gonna fail the test

If you’re first you’re cursed
If you wait you’re great
Don’t you pout just sort it out
Try to corroborate

It’s not a crime to take some time
And try to figure out
The pratfalls and the pitfalls
And what everything’s about

So think it through, then make your move
Don’t just act on instinct
You think you’ve got some things to prove
But get yourself in sync

First is the worst
And last is the best
If you go before you know
You’re gonna fail the test

“Wait a minute, hold up son
Think about what you have done
Take your lessons from your past
Don’t be first and make things last”

First is the worst
And last is the best
If you go before you know
You’re gonna fail the test
Track Name: Ben Taggart - Like The First Time
You can say anything you want.
Your every word is sweet to me.
But there are those words which mean so much more.
And when you said those to me, oh!

It’s like the first time I prayed.
It’s like the first time I saw the sun.
My whole world is remade.
Now a whole new life has begun.

Now as I se the world anew,
There are some words I’d say to you.
These are those words which mean so much more.
And so I’m here to say, “I love you too.”

It’s like the first time I prayed.
It’s like the first time I saw the sun.
My whole world is remade.
Now a whole new life has begun.
Track Name: Turtle Fence - First
As I'm browsing the web through the news and the blogs
I often feel lost and adrift in the sea
Through pages and pages of comments and posts
Everyone has an opinion but me.

A continual stream of content is added
The ratio of info to noise is too much
I wander this wilderness until I discover
An article or post blessedly untouched

To post first, the thrill of winning the rac
I post first; in all upper case
I post first into every blank space.
You think I'm a troll, but it's a salve to my soul,
to post first.

At the CERN conference among the foremost minds
Quantum Physics not too hard to understand
Yet when they ask 'are there any questions'
I cannot help but to raise my hand.

To post first, the thrill of winning the rac
I post first; in all upper case
I post first into every blank space.
You think I'm a troll, but it's a salve to my soul,
to post first.

It's quiet and dark and calm in this room
That my brother twin is sharing with me
9 months of peace and repose in the womb
There's only one reason that I'd ever leave.

I've got nothing to say, but I lust to be heard.
I get the last laugh when I have the first word.
Track Name: Brian Gray - First One Here (Shadow)
Ferdinand, Isabella I send my thoughts and trust they find you well.
Skirted capture, rigged a sail, broken rudder, what a tale to tell.
Toward the archipelago, ‘til Rodrigo called “land ho”.
My bad, I meant I called “land ho”. Where’s that bonus, bro?

I’m the first one here. No one has sailed across this sound before.
None ever stood atop this mound before, aground a shore so near.
I’m the first one here, manifestation of a grand pogrom,
Destiny watching as I stand upon a land to commandeer.

Kickin’ it as Governor, pick-and-choosing statutory law.
Severed noses and ears today. Tyranny? To that I say “pshaw”.
Here’s a new hit from the quay: transatlantic slavery.
I can totally foresee all the gold for me.

I’m the first one here. No one has sailed across this sound before.
None ever stood atop this mound before, aground a shore so near.
I’m the first one here, manifestation of a grand pogrom,
Destiny watching as I stand upon a land to commandeer.

I am the mutherflippin’ chief guy.
The plot-a-course-around-that-reef guy.
Forget the natives and that Lief guy.

I’m the first one here. No one has sailed across this sound before.
None ever stood atop this mound before, aground a shore so near.
I’m the first one here, manifestation of a grand pogrom,
Destiny watching as I stand upon a land to commandeer.
Track Name: Marlon - Take Your Money (Shadow)
the first time I saw you
felt like the first time I lost my breath
I tried to find it but didn't know where where to look
or how it even got out my chest

the first time I kissed you
was like the first time I saw the stars
the first time we watched the stars together
we were sitting on the back of my car

then we were dancing in the parking lot
I was swimming then inside of your eyes
wandering into our scene
we saw a fella holding a knife

in his gruff and weary face was the semblance of a life gone awry
I held you close as he coughed up smoke and sighed

and said I'm gonna take your money
or I'm gonna take your head
you seem like a couple of happy folk who don't wanna end up dead
life is pretty, life is sweet
but I don't wanna get out of bed
witout some green to keep me
this is the only way I know how to get

the first time we took a trip to vegas
you were my goodluck charm
I cleaned roulette and felt real good
til a gentleman took hold of my arm

the first time I met with the russian mob
a chill ran into my soul
and the first time I'd been called a cheat
was the first time I was dumped in a hole

the first time I climbed from a shallow grave
the mud was like blackstrap molasses
and the rain so sweet I wished it never ended

the first time that I gasped a breath
I thought would never happen
was the first time that I got the taste for vengeance

I'm gonna take my money
and I'm gonna take control
I'm gonna take a pound of flesh from those who dumped me there in the hole

life is pretty, life is sweet
like kittens drinking milk from a bowl
for the first time I will be the strongest one I know

rage coming in waves
spend all my days making a maze
to trap you in cages
I've been replaced, I've been betrayed, I've been erased
after all that I gave, all the bouquets
think of your face and just see a blaze
to know that it's true that it was you who put me in a grave

I'll be a different woman now
and I'mma make a great disguise
and when I'm through I won't leave you or any of the mobsters alive

revenge can be so very sweet
when it's coming as a special surprise
all will be in place when I arrive

I'm gonna take your money
I'm gonna shake your hand
I'm gonna look you in the eye
and tell you you're a big strong man

when you least expect it everything
comes crashing in on top of your head
and you'll see me holding strings
beneath the scenes to wrap you up and strangle you dead
