Track Name: Picnic Basket Nosedive - The Same Old Fashioned New Year (Previously Unreleased)
Is this the end of your world? You threw it away
As soon as the bells rang in this year
We're counting down for your rage to end
It's not for us to comprehend
Will you get what's implied here?

Roll your eyes at me until you
Realise what lies beneath, it's
Five in the morning and I'm not longer trying
The table's turned, the room has caught a
Glimpse of your complexity
We could call quits now and noone would be mourning

Who have you got left to blame? You drove them away
With all the devotion to your self-worth
Blood Ties Won't Bend To Victory
And all your slurs all aimed at me
Will you get what's implied here?

What a great start to the new year

If this was the end of the world, would you fight for it?
Or would you just wallow in defeat?
Track Name: Hollow Tides - Right In Front Of Me
Welcome to the family, or at least so they say
I'll keep it together as I count the ways
These years have brought conflict between us both
I'll choose our tree if you bring the rope

For the want of the nail, the war was lost and
I can't figure out if it was worth it at all but
Given the chance I'd gladly choke
On anything that kept us afloat

All this time I couldn't see
everything that was right in front of me
Track Name: Veto - Growing Pains
Dad told me not to be afraid
I took his words and I left that day
I left my throne and I left my crown
I broke loose of that fucking town
And it's all coming back to me
Everything you said to me
Told me that I wasn't good enough
But now that I've made it here I can make it anywhere

Don't let what frightens you define you
Keep your hoping head up high
We're only what we leave behind I must of told you a thousand times Just get it in your mind
Guess I showed you, guess I proved you wrong

Don't feel privileged that I wrote you this song
Swore my apathy would never get a hold of me
From all my wasted days watching the TV You can find me somewhere in-between Mistakes and clarity
That's where I am, most of the time
No matter how hard I try

Don't let what frightens you define you
Keep your hoping head up high
We're only what we leave behind
I must of told you a thousand times
Just get it in your mind
Track Name: Raise Your Fall - There's No Giving Up (Everybody's Falling)
We’ve walked for so long
I still remember how we began tho
There was nothing but ideas,
About how we could make different this year
We’ve started drowning all of our fears
Well, It had never been so damned clear

Now look at us, and raise your life
Sometimes we fall for our fights
[YOUR CHOICE!]

Chorus:
Every bridge we have walked on was burnt
Everything said was shut down
Do you still believe that there’s nothing to hope for?
Now everybody’s falling but us!

And I knew there was so much more to say
We fall seven times , but stand up eight
Do you think what we were looking for
was too hard even to reach?

SOMETIMES WE FALL FOR OUR FIGHTS

Chorus:
Every bridge we have walked on was burnt
Everything said was shut down
Do you still believe that there’s nothing, to hope for?
Now everybody’s falling but us!

Could you ever say? Could you ever say?
WE WON’T GIVE UP

Chorus:
Every bridge we’ve walked on was burnt
Everything said was shut down
Do you still believe that there’s nothing , to hope for?
Now everybody’s falling but us!ì
Track Name: Lost Years - Costanza Can't Stand Ya
You packed your bags and you moved out. Left alone, you hate this town and no one really needs you like I always do. And all the times that we spent wasted woke up drunk but now you hate it. Remember when you said to me "We could drink the days away"

Go tell everyone I'm not who you thought I was. My heart could be made of stone but yours is not made of Gold. And it take everything in me to tell you that I'm not sorry. I'm not fucking up again. I'm just tired of losing

Its hard to think I gave a fuck when you left town you had enough. You traded empty bottles for an empty bed. And all the times that we spent wasted woke up drunk but now you hate it. Remember when you said to me "We could drink the days away"

Go tell everyone I'm not who you thought I was. My heart could be made of stone but yours is not made of Gold. And it take everything in me to tell you that I'm not sorry. I'm not fucking up again. I'm just tired of losing

And it takes everything in me to tell you that I'm not sorry. I'm not fucking up again, I'm just tired of losing.
Track Name: Stuck Between Stories - Talk Is Cheap
Well I've said this all about a thousand times
But you don't seem to ever get the point
So save your breath
This time I know that you could probably explain away it all
Un-honestly

You waltz alone upon the words you've sown
And your backbone won't save you when you fall
Because the dance you do
Called your own point of view is out of line and stepping out of time

The ground crumbles beneath your feet
To swallow all of your deceit

Every time I look into your eyes
I wonder how you sleep at night
With all the warning signs that echo through my mind
I know you'll act surprised when I call you out

Sinking feelings under deep blue ceilings
The undoing of the tales you've told
As the weight of all the words around your neck
Will pull you underneath the coming tide

Choking in a drowning pool
Full of all the things you do

Every time I look into your eyes
I wonder how you sleep at night
And when your taking aim to then apportion blame
I hope you feel ashamed coz when I call you out

And when you've had your fun, I'll take a loaded gun
Of words all set to stun a silence out of you
We both know it's been along time due
Since your mouth's allergic to the truth

Every time I look into your eyes
I wonder how you sleep at night

Every time I look in to your eyes
I wonder what gives you the right
To seem so in control with all the lies you've told
But now it's getting old now that I've caught you out
Watching as your name comes crashing down in flames
I know your burning with all of the shame
Of it all, but all the while you remain in denial
With your soul on trial because I caught you out
Track Name: Drop The Act - Tattoos, Gauges and Ripped Jeans
Last night I met the girl of my dreams
Yeah I know it's crazy but it seems
I looked at her as she stood next to me with tattoos, gauges, and ripped jeans.

Now I have a good girl back at home
She would call and text me all day long
but tonight I was feeling kind of adventurous (This is dangerous)


Uh oh, it was almost time to go; I had a few things that i had to let her know
I said "I’m sorry, but excuse me, I have a question, do you have a man? And if not are you free?"
Cause you could mean so much to me, and baby, we could go far, just follow me to the backseat of my car.

Last night I met the girl of my dreams
Yeah i know it’s crazy but it seems
Looked at her as she stood next to me with tattoos, gauges, and ripped jeans
Now I have a good girl back at home that would call and text me all day long
But tonight I was feeling kind of adventurous (this is dangerous)

Usually I’m not this type of guy but this girl, damn, she’s caught my eye
Questioning what I’m about to try
Leaving here with Miss Tattoos by my side
And I know it isn’t right
But what’s the harm in having fun for just one night

Last night I met the girl of my dreams
Yeah I know it’s crazy but it seems
Looked at her as she stood next to me with tattoos, gauges, and ripped jeans
Now I have a good girl back at home that would call and text me all day long
But tonight I was feeling kind of adventurous (this is dangerous)

So now the good girl back home
Well she found out and left me all alone
This is not what i planned
Just came to listen to my favorite band.

Last night I met the girl of my dreams
Yeah i know it’s crazy but it seems
Looked at her as she stood next to me with tattoos, gauges, and ripped jeans
Now I have a good girl back at home that would call and text me all day long
But tonight I was feeling kind of adventurous (this is dangerous)
Track Name: Northern Nightlights - Start Runnin'
Verse:
I waited for you
Just to distort you
And make you believe the things I believed
I came round to help you
To indoctrinate you
And make you as twisted as me

Pre chorus:
If only I had known the truth

Chorus:
I'm still runnin
I'm still runnin
I'm still runnin away from all the lies that I was told when
I was younger
I said I'd keep an open mind but some how I managed
to stoop so fucking low

Verse:
Theyll Take you when your faded
And feeling complicated
Suffocation of the weak

Pre chorus:
If only I had known the truth

Interlude
My life has more meaning than to praise a fraud
My life has more meaning than to praise a god
My life has more meaning than to praise a fraud
My life has more meaning than to praise your god Is a fraud

Chorus: I'm still runnin (I'm stil running, I'm stil running)
I'm still runnin (I'm stil running, I'm stil running)
I'm still runnin away from all the lies that I was told when I was younger (I'm stil running, I'm stil running)
I said I'd keep an open mind but some how I managed to stoop so fucking low (I'm stil running, I'm stil running)
Track Name: Polar Bears In Purgatory - Sick (Previously Unreleased)
I wanna get sick so I leave my window open at night
Fall asleep with my duvet off
Hopefully I'll catch a cough

If I'm actually sick then people will believe that I'm not alright
Then I'll never have to leave my bed Just stay in my room till I'm dead
Its so hard to feel involved
Sometimes I feel like I'm not there at all
I wanna get well but I don't know what is actually wrong

And I don't wanna ask for help
If somethings wrong I can fix myself
If I'm actually sick then people will believe that I'm not alright
Then ill never intended to leave my bed
Just stay in my room till I'm dead

It's so hard to feel involved
Sometimes I feel like I'm not there at all
And when my friends come to call
Ill boost my social standing with alcohol
And I think I'm sick
But im not getting any better

I wanna get sick so I leave my window open at night
Fall asleep with my duvet off
Hopefully I'll catch a cough
Track Name: Frontrunner - Kin (Previously Unreleased)
It’s not the same, just blood in veins.
Sell-out, liar, we only share a name.
We’re not the same, just blood in veins.
Sell-out, liar, we only share a name.

When you were young, did you think you’d become?
In pictures of your youth, I only look same as you.
But no mirror, no reflection of you.
Never hit the one I love.

You’ll die with this disease.
I’m proud of self-restraint.
Something you could never claim.

It’s not the same, just blood in veins.
Sell-out, liar, we only share a name.
We’re not the same, just blood in veins.
Sell-out, liar, we only share a name.

When you were young, did you think you’d become?
Every mistake I pray to God, to release all this hate.
Past resentment, bad decisions.

Hear your nightmares through my door.
Isn’t a parent meant to protect their kin?
Not be another vessel to pass on sin.
I’ll forgive. But never be, anything like you

It’s not the same, just blood in veins.
Sell-out, liar, we only share a name.
We’re not the same, just blood in veins.
Sell-out, liar, we only share a name.
Track Name: Silverbyskyline - We The Broken
Is it alright,
To lay by your side?
Is it alright,
To look in those eyes? X 2

I was raised,
In the glittering lights of a grey-sky city,
Now we're blazing,
A path past all the same sounds of pity,
You say that I'm damaged goods,
But I know that you'll miss me,
There's a space in this puzzle,
It's cause we never fit in

We're alright,
We're alright,
We're not broken,
We're just different by design,
We're alright,
We're alright,
We're not broken,
We're just different by design,

And I'm not phased,
By your constant need for my forgiveness,
You opened up the box and changed all of the locks,
And I can't get in,
One of these days,
You'll find yourself with noone to play with but you,
noone to blame but you,
But you

We're alright,
We're alright,
We're not broken,
We're just different by design,
We're alright,
We're alright,
We're not broken,
We're just different by design

We the broken will not stay down (Alright)
And we the broken will stand our ground (We're alright)
And we the broken will not stay down (Alright)
And we the broken will stand our ground (We're alright)

We're alright,
We're alright,
We're not broken,
We're just different by design,
We're alright,
We're alright,
We're not broken,
We're just different by design
Track Name: The Alter-Natives - Inappropriate, But Within Reason
People used to stare,
When you were leaving
Giving back none of the glances they absorb.
Your silver complexion, doesn't hide your airport transfers
You've taken us places we can't even go

Despair in the car park, your appearance was
No sense of direction, your appearance was inappropriate, but within reason

We cant exactly say it was a magic mystery tour
You drove us mental, but we can endure
We gave Excalibur some motivation
And we pulled it out without hesitation

Despair in the car park, your appearance was
No sense of direction, your appearance was inappropriate, but within reason x2
Track Name: Ultra Violet - The Miles Between
The Miles Between

Whoever said there was a void to fill
I never seemed to see it that way
I’ve always had my posse with me
Whatever gave you that impression
There weren’t too many words unspoken
Honesty is key here and honestly
Before you go Just leave a note.

And let me know that you’ll keep me in mind
When we leave this town for a different state when the leaves begin to fall
Let me know that these dorm room walls between us
Won’t be the thing that keep you from my dreams
Let me know And it’ll stay Between you and me

Whoever said the fire could be stopped It shone brightly over everything
What we had was something special
No one would ever say it would be easy but
This is something never ending
And look how far we’ve come

And let me know that you’ll keep me in mind
When we leave this town for a different state when the leaves begin to fall
Let me know that these dorm room walls between us
Wont be the thing that keep you from my dreams
Let me know
And it’ll stay Between you and me

See past the miles between us
Track Name: Spoke Too Soon - All Mess
I’m doing time and my prison is this town
Can’t wait to get out, can’t wait to burn it to the ground
When my sentence is over, I’m gonna turn this place over, and leave my mark
All over the place, you’ll be seeing my face

Now all I want to go to is anywhere
I would do anything just to get there
For all the time you spend staring at the wall
Cos when you think about it there’s nothing here at all

I’m getting sick of walking down the same streets
Driving down the same roads
And working in the same job
There’s gotta be something else out there
Now all I want to go to is anywhere
I would do anything just to get there
For all the time you spend staring at the wall

Cos when you think about it there’s nothing here at all
