Track Name: Jesca Hoop - Hunting My Dress
Hunting My Dress - Jesca Hoop

And the tall trees all fall down
And they scatter seeds on the ground
And one is lost and one is found
Water is moving underground

When I was a young girl
I would sleep in a tall tree
On the down of bending boughs

And from the mount of his shoulders
I would traverse the valleys
Through his dusk
And dawning eyes

“I will let you in,” said the doe to my arrow,
“and you will wear my bones and my skin”

Hunting my dress
Love is ruthless

And in a nest from the forest
I would carry and ember
And with a burning heart we’d walk
And when he asks me to rest with him
I would lay down my fire
And in that heart we’d sing and talk

I am a raccoon and you are an owl
I will run from you in the mid of night
And we will strike a truce in the billowing tower
And we’ll eclipse the moon with our firelight

Hunting my dress
Love is ruthless

You love me in my dreams
It’s easier when I’m fast asleep
But I don’t want you to come to me anymore
The river bed has married me
But I don’t want you to come to me anymore

And out of ashes comes morning
And the ritual is bathing
In the pools at bridal falls
And from the mouth of my lover
I would drink of the river
And kiss his jade and marble walls

You will spill the red from my heart with your arrow
And you will make my bed under the red grass
And I will give my flesh
And my blood and my marrow
And you will wear my bones and my skin

Hunting my dress
Love is ruthless

And the tall trees all fall down
And they scattered seeds on the ground
And one is lost and one is found
Water is moving underground
And you're the one who showed to me the sky
it’s so much more than you and I
And darling we sure had a time
But the river is whispering goodbye
Track Name: The Absolute - I Had It Coming
I Had It Coming - The Absolute

You have what I need
Comfort me
Like a child I'm in need please
Me myself and why
Try and smile
For a while watch I'll become
Just a scar dull dead and hard
Come on
Don't let me go on, free me
From fake fickle farce
See what we'll start
The bashful will blush
When
We crawl down from this mountain
I know the best of us grow
Bitter and told
Not without pride
Try as I might

Where went wherewithal
See as they fall
Come one and come all
We're
Just a farce
Dull dead and hard
Don't let me go on
As

We climb back up this mountain
I know the best of us grow
Bitter and told
Twice I had it coming
I know
I didn't go home
When I was told
Not without pride
Try as I might

Power it on
On through the day
Down went the sun in the same old way
Mark your page
Page in time
Hold on
One of us... (Gone)

Power it on
On through the day
Down went the sun in the same old way
Mark your page
Page in time
Hold on
One of us gone

Hang on
Hang on
Hold on
One of us gone
Track Name: A House For Lions - Peace and War
A House For Lions - Peace and War

a painted fool waits on the floor
for the keepers of pretend to call him in
(or i did i end up singing: to be called up by the keepers of pretend?)
each night asking for his chance
to retrieve the life he's offered up to them

lords above
am i your song?
O!

he give a bite to one and all
a banquet for the cosmopolitan
thought it seems an errant call
in his fever dreams he's cursed, he's the forgiven
sees with the eyes of the reflection in the mirror
knows the truth: that all is void, still there's an army at your back
what could real life offer him

lords above
i am your song
o my love

o since we first touched i've wanted more
i am your song of peace, your song of war
i dare to scream your name from every shore
i long to scream my name from every shore
Track Name: My Goodness - I'm Going Home
I'm Going Home - My Goodness

When I was a boy I had a mind of my own
Told my folks I was leaving home
Mamma, Pappa told me, son you better not go
Packed my things and started to go

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

You can see I didn’t do so good
I’m half as well as I thought I could
The big cities all treat me bad
I’ve gone back to my mom and dad

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

This runnin’ life has done me wrong
I haven’t eatin’ right for oh so long
Been living a life of hate and pain
Gonna jump up on the next rail train

I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home
Track Name: Tyson Motsenbocker - It Used To Be Easy
It Used To Be Easy - Tyson Motsenbocker

I bought you flowers
Or at least I know I tried
As I rattled on the glass doors
And called to those inside, of the grocery stores in all of North
Los Angeles one night
When my words weren’t coming out right

And I wonder were you waiting
For me to come again
And tell you I was sorry for all that had been broken
But as I left the cigarettes were burning, over you
Cause I didn’t know what else to do

But if I was a fool
To fall over you, I remember

That it used to be easy
It used to be easy and it used to be fast
It used to be beautiful, until you looked away
Then it used to be hard
It used to be hard

They took down that sign beside the house
You always liked
When we were happy dreaming
Caught in branches at the seaside
Well I walk by
From time to time, inside I swear its you
Looking comfortable and confused

But if I was a fool
To fall over you, I remember

That it used to be easy
It used to be easy and it used to be fast
It used to be beautiful, until you looked away
Then it used to be hard
It used to be hard
Track Name: The Donkeys - O! Grace
O! Grace - Jason Molina

She said "I've been the stockyard's pony"
She said "I've been the mountain engine's roll
From Chicago to West Virginia,
I've been as lonesome as the world's first ghost
As lonesome as the world's first ghost

But out here even the prairie doubts the horizon
All I have to do is prove that I'm not pure
Oh, the right words come,
But I ain't talking
The devil's mean but he's honest just as sure
Oh, he is honest just as sure"

Oh Grace, if you stop believing
That don't mean that it just goes away
It's a long way between horizons
And it gets farther every day
Ohhhhh, Grace
Woooooah, Grace

Oh Grace, if you stop believing
That don't mean it just goes away
It's a long way between horizons
And it gets farther every day
Ohhhhh, Grace
Woooooah, Grace

She says "But I know a man whose heart is restless
He's never home, and he's never gone
And he had some good things
But he lost them
Like everything he ever set his heart on
Oh, that he set that heart upon

Oh boy, if you stop believing
That don't mean that I just walked away
It's a long way between horizons
And it gets farther everyday"
Oh, Grace
Oooooh, Grace
Track Name: The Mo Odds - No More
No More - The Mo Odds

No more...
No more...

You know that I believed in you
In everything that we said we'd do
But you keep stringing me along a little longer with your fun and games
But today's gonna be just a little bit different ‘cause I ain't bout to be played that way

I know that love makes me a tool
But it's the last time I'll be your fool

No more (I ain't gonna be your fool)
No more (I ain't gonna be your fool)

And every time you wanna call my name its gotta be 2 or 3 am
And I'll regret the things I do your way when you blow me off again
And I'm sure there's something better when I hit the open road

I know that love makes me a fool
But it's the last time I'll be your fool

No more (I ain't gonna be your fool)
No more (I ain't gonna be your fool)

You got me standing in the middle of the room and I feel like I got no clothes on and everyone is looking at me

I know that love makes me a fool
But it's the last time I'll be your fool

No more (I ain't gonna be your fool)
No more (I ain't gonna be your fool)
Track Name: Ed Ghost Tucker - Devils
Devils - Ed Ghost Tucker

Three little devils are laughing together
They’re playing and singing and dancing and ringing
The bell makes no sound audible to the crowd
But inside I can hear it, goddamn I can feel it

One has the matches, while the other has gases
The third one is smiling and waiting and watching
When the moment is right, oh my brain will ignite
And the flame will consume it and twist it and move it

Our bodies are spineless and sticky and eyeless
They writhe through the soil as they curl and coil
We’re slithering blindly in unholy harmony
Our fleshes are fusing and seeping and oozing

The fluids we’re blending and mixing and mending
Our souls whisper secrets in tongues made of fire
It’s sweet and it’s sickly and salty and sour
We’re swimming in pools made of milk, honey showers

The stars are all shining so bright and so lovely
I wish I could pluck them like fruit from tree branches
Of course God won’t allow it, no, no, he won’t have it
But Wormwood has fallen right into my pocket

He’s speaking and signing and winking and whining
“Oh, Lucifer, Lucifer lead me to shelter”
Because everyone knows that the Devil is clever
“I can’t, I am sorry, I’m burning forever”
My brains weren’t bred
For loving my battered bones
And sweet John has said
“I’ll rise when the horses roam”
For now, I’ll sing my sins
Because it makes me a better man
Than I’ve ever been
As I put down my hands and I look at this page
Well I think to myself, “What the hell have I made?”
It was never my choice, no, I was never in charge
But these voices keep yelling, “Yes you are, yes you are”
Track Name: Dawn and Hawkes - Holler
Holler - Dawn and Hawkes

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you

If you ever want me
I'll be waiting
If you ever need me
Baby let me know
When you get restless
with her loving
Come on back to me
She'll never know

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come, come for you

If you ever wonder
if I've been watching
I saw it coming
from a mile away
A man gets used to
a certain taste on the menu
and she ain't serving up
what'll make you stay

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come, come for you

A man of conviction
strong as metal and steel
can be pulled like a magnet
to the way a woman feels
If you need a reminder
and you're ready to go
I'll keep my engine running
she'll never know

Holler if you get tired
and I'll come for you
Holler if you get tired
and I'll come, come for you
