Track Name: Nils Rusch and the White Wash Vandals - Devil's Daughter
Though you'll dance with the devil's daughter
soon you'll meet the father
choice words he will have for you
You're a son of the circus but your talent's aside
it's a cringe and wither when you meet him in the eye

And speaking of the devil, what a fine fellow
I was absolutely wasted
on one drop that I tasted
of the bottle he put out for me

Now I spend my time with a crew of ghosts
I've never met before
Sailing across this yellow moon
In a haunted canoe

Dog had a kitty and a kitty had a pup
Hey old lady is the rhubarb up?
Well it's too dark for working but it's too light to quit
C'mon boys, let's go and get lit

And speaking of the devil, what a fine fellow
I was absolutely wasted
on one drop that I tasted
of the bottle he put out for me

Now I spend my time with a crew of ghosts
I never met before
Sailing across this yellow moon
and Midnight's door
Midnight's door, Midnight's door....

Hear ye, Hear ye
Have you heard the news?
The town crier
has got the blues
Weeping widows salt the earth with many tears
The wail of a thousand banshees
tears through the air

and speaking of the devil, what a fine fellow
I was absolutely wasted
on one drop that I tasted
Of the bottle he put out for me

I spend my time with a crew of ghosts
I've never met before
Sailing across this yellow moon
In a haunted canoe

Though you'll dance with the devil's daughter
Soon you'll meet the father
Choice words he will have for you

Speaking of the devil, what a fine fellow
I was absolutely wasted
on one drop that I tasted
From the bottle he put out for me

I spend my time with a crew of ghosts
I don't even know
Sailing across this yellow moon
In a haunted canoe
Track Name: Steve Gaw - Funky Satellite
Funky Satellite

Comet trailing across the sky
Caught the tail end of the evening news
Cutting across a still night sky
Ball of ice makes the anchor comment "ooh"

"Well wasn't that nice, next time around we'll be nothing but dust
Well wasn't that nice"
Funky Satellite, Funky Satellite

Morning star set upon horizon
Squinted eye made to comment on
Holding steady in the rising blue
Ball of vapour makes the siamese wonder too

That's a funny star, wonder how much space is left between us? That's a funny star...
Funky Satellite, spinning on a solo go round
Funky Satellite, happy hunting grounds
Funky Satellite

Funky Satellite spinning return to sender
Trail of dust through the night, been here and been there
Comet racing into sight, slow burn satellite
Caught the edge of the world and pulled us skyward
Caught the edge of the world and bowled us over
Funky Satellite

Comet bracing, then waves bye-bye
Just missed the edges of earth, no stops along the way
Between the blue and the harvest moon
That ball of fire left our chance for night and day

Could we live right on such a pock marked subservient
Could we live right

Funky Satellite, spinning on a solo go round
Funky Satellite, happy hunting grounds
Track Name: Amanda Gaw - Restless
When you feel this way
My mind gets
Dangerous
Easy prey
A strange strain
Remedied right

Keep to the fringe
For the getaway
The editing
Joints and beams
How can we stop
What we've built up

I don't want to have anything
I want
Wide webs
Dark shore
Full seasons in a row
And waiting on more

Another pressure rise
Burning up & blowing out
We'll all go down
Woke restless
Somewhat suspended
We'll all go down

Things I despise I've
Come to like
But I'm so
Separate
Just a little luck
Start a destruct

Go forward back
To the brightness
Bardos
Whiteouts
Shaking the dial
For steady stations

I don't want to have anything
I want
The full scheme
Build-up
Five lives in a row
And waiting on more

Another pressure rise
Burning up & blowing out
We'll all go down
Woke restless
Somewhat suspended
We'll all go down
Track Name: Barn - Gin
Gin

Is it the same to wake up
Is it the same to sleep
Isn't that real life
Quick decisions in a dream

Could not get in the zone
Could not establish a beat
isn't that a moment in life
a feeling of defeat

Where did all that time go
Is the world in a faster spin
waking up in the dark
with decisions that make me cringe

I am living, I am breathing
perfect amount of gin
I am living, I am breathing
perfect amount of gin
tip it over, ready to fall right in

Recounting our sins as golden
Considering tomorrow has passed
Waking with a grin
With decisions that make me cringe

The nightmare of escaping
When you're stuck in the quicksand, running in mud
And you've got to be fast
And you're telling your feet to spin, spin, spin

I am living, I am breathing
perfect amount of gin
I am living, I am breathing
perfect amount of gin
I am living, I am breathing
perfect amount of gin
oh tip it over and fall right in
tip it over, ready to fall right in
tip it over, ready to fall right in
Track Name: Caution Press - Karma Junkie
and I feel I don’t fear the worst
just question last, and action first

I know I don’t have much time
but you enlightened minds can never die


late nights, fall asleep
wake up and all the colour disappears

go downtown, more of those damn lights
keep it fake and keep it simple and keep it quiet, ya

and i feel I don’t fear the worst
it’s just question last, action first

and I know I don’t have much time
but you enlightened minds can never die

make up but don’t make friends
just find your fight and torture ’til the end

so where are you, you’re our guiding light
we’ve just lost imagination, and we’re not trying anymore

and i feel I don’t fear the worst
it’s just question last, and action first

and I know I don’t have much time
but you enlightened minds can never…
Track Name: Aedan Helmer - In The Beginning
In the beginning, in the beginning
there was a bolt of lightning
across the heavens so they say

and while you stood there staring, that bolt of lightning
that struck you down before me
That bolt of lightning that struck you down before me
It struck you down

Now I walk through the valley of the damned
and I will raise my hand when I walk
Through the valley of the damned

Here comes the next one, always a next one
You stare at the reflection
of a reflection so they say

Listen in the distance, the second coming
with every sound of thunder
the second coming with every sound of thunder
now every sound of thunder

Makes you walk through the valley of the damned
and I will raise my hand when I walk
Through the valley of the damned

and I will raise my hand when it comes my way
and I will bite the hand when it comes my way
and i will bite the hand, I will fight my way
I will feel the same
I still feel the same
we all feel the same
and I still feel the same as I did in the beginning

When I walked through the valley of the damned
and I will raise my hand when I walk
Through the valley of the damned
Track Name: Steve Gaw - Not Ready For Letting Go
I'd do anything instead
Than wake up and face it
I laid in this bed
I don't want to make it

Oh you've got to know by now
We're under the clouds
Seems every drop of rain
Fell where I was leaning

I'd hear anything instead
Than really what you're meaning
When I got light in the head
I fell where I was leaning

Oh when I got so very tired
I thought the time was cheating
Oh when I got so very tired
Fell asleep and I was dreaming of you

Not ready for letting go
Track Name: W.A. Graham - Financial Turk
If you have faith in god
tell me now
all that secret talk
tell me now
all those major brands
you can forget all their names

financial blue
Track Name: Nils Rusch and the White Wash Vandals - Chicken Shack
Well it started with a crack in that little chicken shack
Just like that old barn I'm falling apart
I hold myself together, even in stormy weather
Board upon board upon board

though the wind she flows
from the north i know
that old chicken shack will stand and stand
so it started with a crack in that little chicken shack
just like that old barn i'm falling apart

Coyote out there scratching, sniffing at the door
Coyote out there howling at the door
But the gun's got the bullet and the bullet's got the pain
That coyote don't come around again

So it started with a crack in that little chicken shack
Just like that old barn I'm falling apart
But I hold myself together, even in stormy weather
Board upon board upon board

Fever gets a runnin', runnin' in the wood
Fever gets a runnin' in the wood
But the fire's got the cure and the cure is for sure
Now that fever's gone, gone for good

It started with a crack in that little chicken shack
Just like that old barn I'm falling apart
But I hold myself together, even in stormy weather
Board upon board upon board
