Track Name: Chuck Ragan - Right As Rain
Oh I must say, my hearts on fire
since I've been away,
since I last saw your face.

Oh Come what may, it'll all get right
and lonely old nights will be a thing in the past.

All I wish is you to sleep
as sound as your eyes and as sweet.
I wish you to know I believe
that your company leaves me right as rain.

Oh I must say, my hearts on fire
but I don't mind the pain,
you're far worth the pain.

For now, I wish you to sleep
as sound as your eyes and as sweet.
I wish you to know I believe
that your company leaves me right as rain.
Leaves me right as rain.

After all, I wish you would sleep
as sound as your eyes and as sweet.
I wish you to know I believe
that your company leaves me right as rain.
Leaves me right as rain.
Leaves me right as rain.
Track Name: A.A. Bondy - There's a Reason
And I gave my hand to the Fates
And they took me around
They showed me the Seven Wonders
The sights and the sounds

There was a man with cinders for eyes
There was a girl with a dress made of flies
And there's a reason
There's a reason

And it's love that's tearing them down
And it's love that turns them around
Say it is so

And the ballroom is filled with the joy
Of making old friends
And jukebox girls trip the light
They wiggle and they bend

Blind Joe, he's feeling no pain
Sweet Georgia, she dreams of the rain
And there's a reason
There's a reason

And it's love that's tearing them down
And it's love that will turn them around
Say it is so

When the moon follows you where you go
And you cannot hide
And when voices of doom ring your ears
And horsemen do ride

May tomorrow the land be anew
May every bird sing unto you
That's the reason
That's the reason

That the love that's tearing you down
Is the love that will turn you around
That the love that's tearing you down
Is the love that will turn you around

Say it is so
Track Name: Dan Andriano - This Light
Is there something that I should know
Some handshake or some secret code
To get me through your doorway one more time
Is there a button I can press
To block out noise from all the rest
You're the only sound I need to hear

See I'm burning up out here in this light
Looked so pretty from the inside,
but out here it's too damn bright
And your voice sounds so far away, so I respond to the delay
And I wait to hear you say to come home

Is there a place that I can go
To forget the things I've never known
Because I don't want to want anymore
Is there a dream that I can have
Where I don't wake up freezing and sad
Or could you show me how to sleep on my back

See I'm burning up out here in this light
Looked so pretty from the inside,
but out here it's too damn bright
And your voice sounds so far away, so I respond to the delay
And I wait to hear you say to come home

I can't always be right there,
but I can get there soon
I can't always hold your hand,
But I will always love you

See I'm freezing out here in this light
Looked so pretty from the inside,
but out here it's too damn bright
And your voice sounds so far away, so I respond to the delay
And I wait to hear you say to come home.
Track Name: Sarah Jaffe - Clementine
50 states
50 lines
50 crying all the time's
50 boys
50 lies
50 'i'm gonna change my mind's
i changed my mind
i changed my mind
now i'm feeling different

we were young
we were young
we were young we didn't care
is it gone
is it gone
is it floating in the air?
i changed my mind
i changed my mind
now i'm feeling different

all that time, wasted
i wish i was a little more delicate
i wish my
i wish my
i wish my
i wish my
i wish my name was clementine
Track Name: The Mountain Goats - Palmcorder Yajna
Holt Boulevard
Between Gary and White
Hooked up with some friends at the Travelodge
Set ourselves up for the night

Carpenter ants in the dresser
Flies in the screen
It will be too late by the time we learn
What these cryptic symbols mean

And I dreamt of a house
Haunted by all you tweakers with your hands out
And the headstones climbed up the hills
And the headstones climbed up the hills

Send somebody out for soda
Comb through the carpet for clues
Reflective tape on our sweatpants
Big holes in our shoes
Every couple minutes someone says he can't stand it any more
Laugh lines on our faces
Scale maps of the ocean floor

And I dreamt of a camera
Pointing out from inside the televsion
And the aperture yawning and blinking
And the headstones climbed up the hills

If anybody comes to see me
Tell 'em they just missed me by a minute
If anybody comes in to our room while we're asleep
I hope they incinerate everybody in it

And I dreamt of a factory
Where they manufactured what I needed
Using shiny new machines
And the headstones climbed up the hills
