Track Name: Edric Haleen - On The Matter Of Bullying (Part 3)
Classmates:

What?!
Oh my god!
When was this?
In the bathtub?!
That’s so sad.
Did you hear?
Was there a note?
Holy fuck.

So he’s dead?!
Why’d he do it?
That’s so awful!
In his house.
What’s his name?!
With a razor.
Did’ja know him?
What a freak.

He seemed sad.
I sat behind him.
He was quiet.
We were neighbors.
He was weird.
He’d been bullied.
Always distant.
What a shame.

I can’t believe it.
No one helped him.
He seemed normal.
He was awkward.
I just saw him.
Fucking bullies.
Now he’s gone . . .

Bully:

I’m sorry.
I guess I don’t know what to say.
I’m sorry.
I can’t believe you’re really gone.

I know I caused you pain.
I told you you were odd.
I told you you were stupid.
I threatened you at school.
I said I’d beat you up.
I said you had no friends.
I told you you would
Do the world a favor
If you’d . . .

I never thought you’d do it . . .

But now you’re really gone . . .

And ev’rybody hates me.
(Big surprise!)
I see the accusation
In their eyes.
But what I cannot tell the --
The thing they’ll never see --
Is simply that I’m sorry . . .

I wish I wasn’t me . . .

But I have to be strong.
With me in control.
You make your skin thick.
You learn that real quick
When Dad’s on a roll.

‘Cause Mom won’t protect you.
She won’t even try.
And how much you’re hit
Depends quite a bit
On whether you cry.

But fuck! I endure it!
I don’t shy away.
For God knows how long,
I’ve tried to be strong
While Dad wailed away.

And injuries heal,
One way or another.
And welts from your dad
Aren’t nearly as bad
As scorn from your mother.

But who’s there to blame
When you do the same
To your own little brother?

It’s sad, but it’s true.
And now I’ve killed you . . .
So who
Could love me?

You have to be strong
If’ you’re to survive.
If you’d have been stronger,
You might not be happy,
But you’d be alive.

It isn’t your fault.
The blame rests on me.
But all that I’ve done
Is who I must be.
I have to be strong.
I can’t let them see
I’m sorry.

I’m sorry.
Track Name: Sara Parsons - Guilt
I won't lie, no, I haven't been by
It's a fantasy of mine
To unlatch your gate on a bright Spring day
and stroll up and down the lines

I've waited a while, a while too long
To make that connection
Acting like I don't see the seasons pass
Or the spread of this infection

They tell me it was meant to happen that way
But I won't listen to a word they say

Where does the comfort come from
When I know time's not on our side,
and I can't with good conscience say I tried?

When I think of you, I always think about how
God, it might be nice
If the last words that you ever said to me
Weren't "Thanks for the advice."

It was meant to happen
That's what they all say
I never wanted to turn out this way

Where does the comfort come from
When I know time's not on our side,
and I can't with good conscience say I tried?

If I could talk to ghosts,
I'd never leave you be.
You're the only spirit
I would ever choose to see
And every single hour
I wonder where you are
I hope that you are comfortable
I hope you can see stars

If it was meant to happen
If that's what they say
How much longer will I feel this way?

Where does the comfort come from
When I know time's not on our side,
and I can't with good conscience say I tried?
No, I can't with good conscience say I tried.
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - Song To Stay Awake (700 Miles)
Awake in the starlight
Hardly a world away
If I misjudged the distance
I'll feel every inch today

A still-ringing gunshot
But only through-and-through
And so many miles before
My voice could reach you

As far as I know you're only sleeping
Hope against hope you're only sleeping

So much left to do
So much to see
Don't cut your story short
There's so much left to say
Life to be set free
Things that I forgot before

I sang this song to stay awake
This song to keep us warm
This song to make the miles disappear

I bought you a movie
On the way to the town
Prayed you'd see it with me
A proposal turned down
At mile two hundred
I sang with all I had
To keep the car moving
Taking the good with the bad

Like I have not escaped this wreck yet
Like worse could come then dying young and perfect

So much left to do
So much to see
Don't cut your story short
There's so much left to say
Lost time to be set free
Things that I forgot before

I sang a song to stay awake
A song to keep our eyes open
This song, to hold reality at bay

And i unwound, i unraveled
Added verse for every hour I traveled
At 1 in the morning i'd reached the end
Of the elaborate game of pretend

This is a song to stay awake
This is a song to change the world
This is a song to erase time that was taken away
Track Name: TurboShandy - Torchbearer
Time won't heal what time has wrought
It wasn't cheap, it can't be bought
I get it now, you had to go
I had to stay right here, you know

Couldn't take the burden
Baby, you sure took a little time to yourself
Calling missing persons
I can't bear to take your picture down from my shelf

I can't bear to take it down 'cause I can't bear to give you up
I felt better when you went away, but the feeling never stuck
I can't bear to take it down, save you're never here at all
I still need to bear this torch to see your picture on the wall

You were sweet, so was I
How come I feel like the bad guy?
It's been so long, is this a test?
Your face becomes a blurry mess

Couldn't take the burden
Out of all the people, said you liked me the most
Calling missing persons
Seeing you would be akin to seeing a ghost
Track Name: Dr. Lindyke - Why
Time seems to wave goodbye to the past
But what does time hold for a man like me?
I’ve little to lose and nothing to gain
And all I have now are these memories

Lost in a cascade of my dreams
From long ago until today
The friends I made in my youth
Have long since drifted away

Why does it have to happen?
Why did it happen to us?
Why can’t the hour glass let us be?
Why can’t the sundial turn to dust?

Seems I remember you from just yesterday
You must be the friend I knew long ago
Aren’t you the one I met as a child?
I believe what I believe ‘cause I know
I believe what I believe 'cause it's so

In years gone by I’ve questioned creation
But the answer was as easy as Pi
All life’s legacy is a circle
We shall all live life and then die

Why does it have to happen?
Why did it happen to us?
Why can’t the hour glass let us be?
Why can’t the sundial turn to dust?

Seems I remember you from just yesterday
You must be the friend I knew long ago
Aren’t you the one I met as a child?
I believe what I believe ‘cause I know
I believe what I believe 'cause it's so
Track Name: Ryan M. Brewer - Burn Out Or Fade Away (PSH)
there's only so much one can take,
only so long 'til he breaks,
when you're walkin' 'round, fakin' all the love you make.
and no, it's never in a needle...
it's never as gone as it feels,
walkin' 'round, talkin' 'bout a love that's real.

how can you make me see again,
if i couldn't make you free again?
burn out or fade away...

like a student begat from his master,
a moneyball boiled a bastard,
racin', chasin' dragons - just a little bit faster...

how can you make me see again,
if i couldn't make you free again?
burn out or fade away...
how can you make me see again?
if i could, i'd make you be again.
burn out or fade away...

you're burnin' rubber from a small-time pawn,
fresh obscurity is a long-time gone,
you carried demons like a loaded gun,
i pray they never will forget you...

how can you make me see again,
if i couldn't make you free again?
burn out or fade away...
how can you make me see again,
if i could, i'd make you be again.
burn out or fade away...
Track Name: Ross Durand - Sitting Right Here
I remember hearing when I was young
Before you marry a girl, better get to know her mom
And I found you sweet and I found you smart
So I married your daughter, cause she stole my heart
And time goes on and
People change
You began to forget things
Even our names

And you're sitting here
But you're not really there
You still smile when I give a kiss goodbye
there's still a hint of twinkle in your eye
We're not really with you even though
You're sitting right here

I heard it once in a Joni Mitchell song
You don't know what you got till it's gone
And I got another family, with another mom
I guess nothin lasts for long
But the photos still remind me
Of you from another time
The you that welcomed me in
That laughed, and who was kind

And you're sitting here
But you're not really there
You still smile when I give a kiss goodbye
there's still a hint of twinkle in your eye
We're not really with you even though
You're sitting right here
Track Name: The Orion Sound featuring Microglitching - Without You (A Valentines Stalker Song Sequel)
Intro (TheDragonHat):
You are sentenced to 6 years in jail, for arson, breaking and entering, and sexual assault. You will be alone, you will lose your rights. You will suffer for your crimes.

It feels like months since ive seen your eyes, your nose, your mouth,
Infact its only been 3 weeks since I broke into your house
Stuck here all alone, I try not to lose hope,
Passing away the hours by fumbling the soap.
If she loved me, why’d she leave me here,
For the first time my mind is clear,
I need to forget you, i’m free
Youll. See.

6 weeks parole Billy; don’t get into any trouble and put it to good use.
I will sir. I’m ready.

I could be anything that I want to be,
Be the hero, solve world hunger, itll be my destiny,
Get a job, earn my way, leave stalking for another day,
And though now that ive left you behind, I know that I’ll be fine
I, don’t, need you!

Since I moved on, im going far,
No more hiding in your car
Sniffing at the laundry you that leave out.
I mean sure, it’ll be hard, but from your love I am barred.
I can live, without you

Oh Wait, whats that I see,
Your radiant beauty coming from the street
My hearts a blur,within my pants something starts to stir
But who’s that man standing next to her.

I bend him over and I break his arm,
Choke him before he sounds the alarm
Then I knock him down and curb stomp his face
Then I tie up his limbs and I throw him into a lake,
Now we can be together.

And staring from the other shore
across the blood-stains and the gore,
Mouth open like shes wanting more
and then she says;

Microglitching:
Although murdering my boyfriend seems a little bit extreme
I’m into 50 shades; this kinky stuff just speaks to me.
Youre kind of creepy-crazy, but who isn’t anyway
Maybe we can make this work.

Oli:
I have loved you, wanted you for such the longest time,
Waiting to feel your heartbeat, feel it beat in time with mine
And now that we’re together, I can finally see

Together:
Theres no I in “pursuit”, theres we.

So lets run away and be;

In love until the end,
no restraining order I wouldn’t bend,
No more breaking in; ill have a key;
We can have 12 kids,
and I can lick your face
There will be only love you’ll taste.

And to us, itll be, the greatest fantasy.
That I don’t want to end.

Ending line (TheDragonHat)
"Should we tell him he’s only been in here a week?
Nahh, don’t ruin his dream…"
Track Name: Jutze - Nancy (Please Don't Go)
Dear Mrs. Nancy Habersack
Why did you have to leave me here?
Isn't there a way I could bring you back
To stay with me another year?

I know you had to leave one day
But why must it be now?
I always thought I'd find a way
To win your heart somehow

You said I'll get someone new
Who's smarter and who's better
Still I feel like I'm marooned
That's why I write you this letter

I know that you don't feel the same
But maybe all we need is time
I like the way you say my name
And I want to make you mine

Please don't go - you know I'm really mad about you
Please don't go - you know I really need you

I know I should be acting tough
Pretend that I don't care
But already I miss your love
Your voice, your golden hair

Please don't go - you know I'm really mad about you
Please don't go - you know I really need you
Please don't go - 5th grade won't be the same without you
Please don't go - you are my favourite teacher
Track Name: Brian Gray - The Child I Left Behind
A soldier on the field. A castaway at sea.
A world that wasn’t real, but real enough inside my mind.
A monster-hunting knight in a spaceship crewed by me
And the child I left behind.

Adventure all around, a place where I belong,
The magic transformation when a cape and mask combined,
In time get rendered down to lyrics in a song
To the child I left behind.

You said imagination was forever,
You’d shadow me with legs that never tire.
I guess that proves a challenging endeavor
With pants on fire.

The slipping slope within that feels so apropos.
A point along a timeline that was never quite defined.
I bet it seemed a win the moment I let go
Of the child I left behind.

I think from time to time I maybe see you.
Distracted by a flicker of the light,
Reminding me I’m not supposed to be you,
So set things right.

The comics in their mylar. The Legos in their chest.
A basement made of hints and clues that almost feel designed
To be a guiding star in this neverending quest
For the child I left behind.
Track Name: Felix Frost - Cat's Eye
if it hadn't been for my dietitian
never would have met her
my deficiencies had sent me snooping
at the "Spirit Vitamin Shop"

she had those green mint leaf tattoos
and a scarf of some kind of faux fur
I lost my will to live without her
the second she offered a drop

as I sipped she brushed her bangs aside
and revealed that feline green line
one taste of her scent
and I couldn't stop

now I can't see through darkness
like I used to
with the girl with the cat's eye

now I can't see the colors
now my tongue is dry
without the girl with the cat's eye

I still yearn for the good old days
cross-legged inside her tent
the one with the holes punched in shapes
of stars

we touched tips to knuckles and
sang eerie chants under lights
sparse and spotty and hot
the hexes she taught me
tossed hot stones in my heart

the panels in her eyes
reflected her mischief
of a sinister salivary gland
our bones bending like bars

now I can't see through darkness
like I used to
with the girl with the cat's eye

now I can't see the colors
now my tongue is dry
without the girl with the cat's eye

How did she replace her pupils
with the wicked pit slit of a cat
I don't know what it was about her
that made me fall for something like that
I can't see her again,
can't risk the hitch of witchcraft
I still hear her hissing
like she tasted my tears and laughed

now I can't see through darkness
like I used to
with the girl with the cat's eye

now I can't see the colors
now my tongue is dry
without the girl with the cat's eye
Track Name: Caravan Ray - Missing You
I miss you like a fish misses a bicycle
I miss you like a flame misses an icicle
I miss you like a walrus misses a polar bear
I miss you like a stripper misses her underwear
I miss you, but I think I'll get over it
I miss you, but I think I'll get over it

I miss you like a bullet misses a Kennedy
I miss you like a sickness misses a remedy
I miss you like a swimming pool misses a floating turd
I miss you like Henry Tudor missed Richard III
I miss you, but I think I'll get over it
I miss you, but I think I'll get over it

I miss you like a punch in the face
I miss you like the bubonic plague
I miss you like a kick in the the balls
Some might think I don't miss you at all

I miss you, but I think I'll get over it
I miss you, but I think I'll get over it
Track Name: Jailhouse Payback - Hey Eugene
Hey Eugene
there's still a picture on the wall
hung up in the hall
to our bedroom

Hey Eugene
in it she still looks young
her hair uncombed, undone
wearing glasses

Was it worth it?
do you even know
just a couple of kids
in a car on the road
Hey Eugene

Hey Eugene
the guitar and the words
the youth of your nerves
were a trance

Hey Eugene
we really wish you both well
not really, go to hell
we just want to see her again

Hey Eugene
welcome to the country life
a beard and a wife
and a dog

Hey Eugene
do your dreams ever call
because if they care at all
they'll have you pick up the phone
Track Name: Zoe Gray - Ginger Twins
I look outside into the snow
I wish that you'd stay long enough to know
We beat them all again
So maybe it was all a show
To cover me not letting go
We'll always be wisemen

And you and I made a vow
We'd always be free
But I guess now
The joke's on me

You keep slipping through my fingers like sieves
And how am I supposed to know how the other half lives?

I'm sitting after the attack
It's strange to think you're never coming back
Because you and I are one
The fantasies that I'd create
You were with me, so I can only wait
To tell you we all won

And you and I made a vow
We'd always be free
But I guess now
The joke's on me

You keep slipping through my fingers like sieves
And how am I supposed to know how the other half lives?

We were flying overhead in momentary bliss
But now I'm just falling, so alone, in this abyss
We thought we were all the kings advancing to the dawn
And all of the things I meant to say and do are gone

I scream and shout and even pray
That you'll come back to me some day
But I know that it's wasted
The feeling's supposed to disappear
But still I wish that you were here
The glory we tasted

And you and I made a vow
We'd always be free
But I guess now
The joke's on me
Track Name: Trader Jack - Doom Dah
We live on a space station. You took the graduation exam and you met the secret requirements for psychic ability.

You're part of the important team that plans the economy and media. But we were going to start a family and make

custom pants for people that like that sort of thing. I'm looking for you in places I know you're not. Like the bank,

like your old apartment. The people that moved in are nice, but I think they're weirded out by my over often presence.

Anyway, will the 3rd quarter be profitable? Hahaha, what the hell is your life like now? I can't really process it

without knowing. I bet it's exciting enough to distract you from missing me. I'm jealous of that. Because it's like

all my blood is gone. I'm a vampire now, everybody, these interactions are little meals, tasteless dust food, no

blood in my body. I'm just walking around. Around and around... ok. I'll get over it. What else is there to do?

The sky. I'm training to be an astrojockey. I'll ride commets in the McDonalds derby. You'll know if I'm going to win.

Because you're psychic and I miss you. I hate trying to keep in touch. You'll know there's nothing worth telling,

because you knew me when I was trying. It doesn't take balance to ride commets. You just do the math to compensate for

vibrations, but they make you do it on the fly, so it's sporting. I'm pretty good, but not the best. I took the name

Belly Dragon and I wear a luchadora mask. I'm a cult favorite, you've probably seen me, did you know it was me?
Track Name: Jenny Katz - Secret Love Life
Boy on the bus
Just a single empty seat
I turn and smile

Commuter rush
Traffic pins us in the street
We talk awhile

The mystery
of ancient friends we’ve never seen
but recognize

And then the time
spinning like a maple seed
we said goodbye

My secret love life
I never even knew your name
My secret love life
I know that nothing is ever gonna change

Girl on the bus
But this was years ago
I have to wonder

I made you laugh
We talked about equality
Do you remember

And late at night
my family is deep asleep
I lie alone

A fantasy
of everything I'll never be
I don’t wanna let it go, no

My secret love life
I never even asked your name
My secret love life
I know that nothing is ever gonna change

My secret love life
Never even asked your name
Secret love life
I know that nothing in the world is ever gonna change
Track Name: T.C. Elliott - Broken Mind
Thinking about you once again
Wishing you could understand
Wonderin' 'bout the places you have been
The corner grocery and Japan

Another day goes by and I'm all alone
Stuck inside my house, can't leave my home

I tried to call you one last time
But your number must have changed
You said I had a broken mind
That needed to be rearranged

Stuck inside my shell, all alone
My only contact is through the phone

Some day you'll see
The broken part of me
Was the part that you loved the best
If you only could set me free

I walk to the door, it's open wide
I try to see the world from here
The lonely echoes from my past life
Can't lure me out from my fear

I see people as they're walking by
I can't be there even though I try

Some day you'll see
The broken part of me
Was the part that you loved the best
If only you could set me free
My broken mind
Track Name: Spencer Sokol - Burdens
he sat in the back seat
comic book in his hand
they were driving the back roads out of town

when the brakes gave out
he failed to understand
so shocked he couldn't even hear the sound

of the crash that took his breath away

we all need to lay our burdens upon
a stable word to act on
an intrinsic wish we can hold on to
and he had you

she stood at the door
his death grip on her hand
they were locked eyes in a stare down

when her heart gave out
she failed to understand
how she'd so quickly come to lose what she'd found

and the thought, it took her breath away

we all need to lay our burdens upon
a stable word to act on
an intrinsic wish we can hold on to
and she had you

I stood and stared at the servant's cup
i left all those stories bound up

when i stopped drinking
the reason took my breath away

I need to lay my burdens upon
a stable word to act on
an intrisic wish I can hold on to
it just can't be you
Track Name: James Young - Never Coming Home
I wake up and miss your smile
You've been gone for a while
I cling to my self denial
As I watch the clock dial

They don't know
What to do, what to say
Did you have to go?
Turn your back, run away?

Tonight I feel so lonely
Wish I had you by my side
You could have been the one & only
But we can't turn back the tide
Now the days are passing slowly
And the pain will not subside
Because you're never coming home

Sunlight floods the morning sky
Finally I close my eyes
And in my dreams you're nearby
Seeing through all the lies

They don't know
What to do, what to say
Did you have to go?
Turn your back, run away?

Today I feel so lonely
Wish I had you by my side
You could have been the one & only
But I can't turn back the tide
Now the nights are passing slowly
And the pain will not subside
Because you're never coming home

The evenings grow dark & cold
Without you here to hold
Your story remains untold
Will you get to grow old?

They don't know
What to do, what to say
Did you have to go?
Turn your back, run away?

Tonight I feel so lonely
Wish I had you by my side
You could have been the one & only
But we can't turn back the tide
Now the days are passing slowly
And the pain will not subside
Because you're never coming home
Track Name: Adam Sakellarides - Right Place, Wrong Time (The Time Traveller)
Sitting in a coffee shop
Futzing on the internet
When suddenly I saw a flash of light
She appeared before my eyes
In a svelte coat with gadgetry
And said “Come with me— There’s no time!”

She said “Greetings, sir—
I am from The Future
And a third world war you can help prevent.
We have chosen you
for your tech prowess and ability
to follow directions from smart and pretty women"

And she was right
And she was

It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine

She teleported us
To the thirtieth century
Asked “Can you help with this archaic technology?"
Showed me an old Mac
From summer 2015
So I DDrescued for file recovery

She said “Wow, you’re good.
Shame have to send you back."

It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine

I said, "I have a dull ache in my chest"
She said, “That’s a time-travel side-effect”
But I knew better:
It was love

[solo]

In the 21st century
She returned in seconds to update me
We prevented war— mission complete
She said a few months had passed
I noticed an engagement ring
And she disappeared in a flash after a kiss on the cheek

months for her
minutes for me

It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
It was the right place
But it was the wrong time
But temporal displacement could make you mine
Track Name: Army Defense - Phil And Don
Lonely and high are harmonies
No reasons why, we're a family
Drunk on the farm, July 14
My voice gave out, and then you had to leave

Hey big brother, you were a little too close to the mic
your hair was too short, your guitar was a little too high

Maybe I'm tired, I don't wanna answer why
anymore, that's just the way it is
One more time, not for anyone
We're the Lords of the Manor
that's where I belong
Track Name: Taylor R - Missing You
You were mine, to have and hold
I wanted us to work, all along
I said “We’ll be together til we’re old.
What on earth between us could go wrong?”

But in time, you went cold.
The days, the nights, the fights, they all grew long.
And for a moment, I was bold.
You see, I thought that we did not belong.

I’m at our favourite coffee shop, and they didn’t recognise me
And this double latte… well it bites without you

And though I want you in my arms…

We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
I’m missing you.

And I’ve tried, to substitute you
I don’t remember my last sober weekend
I thought by now you’d be off my mind
But the days, the months have passed and you’re still here

You’re on a plane to Melbourne, and you’re going there without me
And my memories of there, well all coloured with you.

We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
We won’t know
if it’s for the best
’til we put our love
to the test
I’m missing you.
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - Dead Wrong
I've watched you in your classes
But I've forgot my glasses.
If you can't be mine I'll lose sight of you

I'm going thru the motions
By crossing all the oceans
If you can't be mine I'll be missing you - again

Chorus:
I'm always missing you; it's just a shot in the dark
I think I've got you scoped out but I can't hit my mark
I always think I've found you but you're not there for long
I thought I'd finished with you but I was dead wrong

I'll follow you in my car
Keep you in my radar
If you can't be still i'll be missing you - always.

I've had you where I wanted
But now the hunter is the hunted
I'm trapped in this mine - I'll be missing you - again

I'm always missing you; it's just a shot in the dark
I think I've got you scoped out but I can't hit my mark
I always think I've found you but you're not there for long
I thought I'd finished with you but I was dead wrong

Dead Wrong, Baby.
Track Name: Ominous Ride - When I Lost You
I’ve imagined
What might have been
And what might still be
To wake up beside you again
The touch of my hand to your cheek
Seems so sweet

For some reason
I cannot let go of the night it began
We shared a few drinks and a walk on the beach
and I kissed you

And I cannot say
Just how much of these feelings are true
But sometimes it feels I lost the best part of me
When I lost you

There’s no resolve
Already tried to drink you away
The bottles of wine still remind me
But the laughter is absent inside me
I miss you

And then I remember the things that were said
And the night we agreed that the romance was dead
But none of the tears that were shed
Washed your memory away

And I cannot say
Just how much of these feelings are true
But sometimes I feel I lost the best part of me
When I lost you

My mind is gone
Hard to believe that it all comes down to a song
But there’s no going back
I can’t play the fool of hope again

And I cannot say
Just how much of these feelings are true
But sometimes I feel I lost the best part of me
When I lost you
Track Name: Hudson And Day - I Tried, Okay
An ache in my heart
A lump in my throat
Since you left I’ve been torn apart

Where did you go?
Why did you leave?
I can't breathe without you
I can’t live without you
I can't breathe without you

The days passing slowly
And I just don’t know how
Long I’ve been drowning
So I just waste time
And analyze every last why

I’ve tried to move on
And I’ve tried to be strong
But nothing makes sense
(and no one really wants to talk about The Elephant that is the silence)
And no one can feel this emptiness
You left behind

The days are passing so slowly
And I don’t know how long I’ve been drowning
Just wasting my time
Analyzing every detail of us
And what went wrong.
Track Name: Dex01 - Monster
when you
when you call

do you feel nothing
nothing at all

it's like a sickness that won't go away
what can I do to keep it at bay

I'm like a monster better lock me away
cause if I see you who knows what I will say
yeah I can hear I can hear you call
but you see through me you see nothing at all

It's been weeks now since I've seen your face
And there's this feeling in my stomach that's telling me you can't be replaced

So I'll just keep it all to myself
are you feelin how I'm feelin or are you with somebody else

I'm like a monster better lock me away
cause if I see you who knows what I will say
yeah I can hear I can hear you call
but you see through me you see nothing at all

Nothing at all can change what I have done
Now I'm just looking for the cure to stop my body feeling numb

yeah when you
when you don't call

I feel nothing
nothing at all

I don't see you when I'm awake
And still I wonder what would it take

I'm not a monster please don't lock me away
if I try hard enough I know I can change
and I can hear it I can hear the call
no I don't wanna no I don't wanna fall
Track Name: Sid Brown - Who You Used To Be
Every night, I lay next to you
and think of why, this bed just seems so much bigger and
I would swim over to you but
waking you up doesn't sound much better

do you remember, the 4am nights wishing we didn't need sleep
there was nowhere we could hide in this town,
no alleys, no bars that we didn't sweep
do you remember how it was when we first made love?
I know you don't. I know you don't.

And where did you go?
Where you just can't look back
I miss you baby, more than you know but
I know you're never coming back

Why did you change? I miss the real you
It used just be so much better
False pretense fades away, I'm never going back
No I won't, No I won't.. No I won't

Where did you go?
where you just can't look back?
I miss you baby, more than you know but
I know you're never coming back
Track Name: Wait What - Without You Here
I've got time on my hands with you here
I've got me in my hands without you here
I've gotten restless waiting
So I've been contemplating, Creating
Inventive ways of masturbating

Stick my dick in peanut butter
But my dog likes cool whip better
But negro please
Those calories
are gonna make my doggy fat
I speak from experience - I got a 40 lb cat

I've got time on my hands with you here
I've got me in my hands without you here

I've missed you and i need you back
Back safely home from Iraq
I hope your 'gina is still in intact

Until then
Sex games on my computer
(Don't smell his joystick)
Ms. Pacman got much cuter
(She's Pacman with a bow and make up, you fag)

Steve jobs come back, Equip my Mac
With an external slot for my wiener (The iBlow)
Not too loose - not too tight
I hope it does not take one megabyte

I've got time on my hands with you here
I've got me in my hands without you here

Take my dick from the Dyson
And fuck the bowl of mashed potatoes
Dip my dick in the fish food
So i can feed the hungry betas

Did I tell you I got a
(blow up doll)
Top of the line model
(blow up doll)
I got Joan and she has handles sewn to her neck

She's got a few options
(blow up doll)
Like extra large ear holes
(fuck her in the ear)
And she's got removable eyes
For when my two friends come by

I got the smoker's package
There's an ashtray on her back
I love my little blow up doll
Blow her up and she blows you back

Come back baby, from Iraq
(from Iraq)
I've missed you and I need you back
(need you back)
I hope your 'gina is still intact
(still intact)

I've got time on my hands
I've got time on my hands
Track Name: Andy Glover - What's Making Me Sad (Shadow)
this house is so quiet without you around
i can’t take the silence, i miss your sound
you didn’t leave a note when you left me behind
anything you could’ve wrote wouldn’t make me feel fine

now you’re nowhere to be found, and it’s driving me mad
can’t keep my feet on the ground, and it’s making me sad

im trying to stay focused through this lonesome limbo
but all i hear are locusts outside my window
i’m not sure where you’ve gone, not sure i’d like to know
but i wish you’d come back and finish the show

now you’re nowhere to be found, and it’s driving me mad
can’t keep my feet on the ground, and it’s making me sad

now i’m filling up pages with words you’ll never read
feels like you’ve been gone for ages
it’s your company i need

i hope you find what you’ve been seeking that you couldn’t find here
but what am i to do when you disappear?

now you’re nowhere to be found and it’s driving me mad
can’t keep my feet on the ground, and it’s making me sad

this feeling will pass soon, i’ll forget you, i’ll find a new friend
i’ll cover up your tracks. if you come back, the door is open
Track Name: Heather Miller - Greatest Generation (Shadow)
My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you

I mostly know you from the Christmas and the Birthday cards
Your perfect cursive wishing me well
I understand it’s partly distance, partly circumstance
That I don’t know all the stories that you have to tell

My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you

You played your keyboard at the old folks homes
and most of the audience was younger than you
you always liked to say that music kept you young
I hope I live to be at least 97 too

My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you

The last time I saw you, I sang you my songs
You closed your eyes and bobbed your head
and even sang along
You were a member of the Greatest Generation
And even though you are gone
I still look to you for inspiration

My arms are tired,
been carrying this guitar all day
My feet are sore,
been walking for quite a ways
But I know what I have to do
I have to sing my song for you
Track Name: T.C. Elliott - Will You Run Away With Me, My Love (Shadow)
If you ran away with me
Would we find love?
Will you run away with me, my love?

My hopes, my dreams are bound with you
Don't say you've found someone brand new
You said if it were meant to be
You would always stay with me
Will you run away with me, my love?

Could you say that you believed
You believed in us?
Will you come back to me, my love?

Chorus

You said that my only lie
Sealed our fate with a goodbye
One mistake can cost us all our love

Chorus
