Frog - Judy Garland (free) 03:37
excuse me darlin to disturb you could you spare a bit of what the lord's left for you bless your solemn unending virtue lest your savior up desert you jesus couldn't quell the pains of americas in trucks and trains and tractor trailers on the range barmen counting their change and goldwin mayer fred astaire slicking back his oily hair snort benzedrine off of a mirror, slaps her ass how are you dear and all the preachers whistle nervous stare down devils in the back of churches, meet their luscious daughter in the smalls beneath the boughs of birches judy garland hit the bathroom floor of her cold apartment 'bove a chelsea store and all the drag queens and all the whores couldn't get poor judy back up off of her laurels and judy wanna put my foot down on manhattan make it float down like a boogie board see the water bulging through the avenue watch the cool kids look out their window bored as their mother drops the rolling pin the radio says judy garland hit the bathroom floor of her cold apartment 'bove a chelsea store and all the drag queens and all the whores couldn't get poor judy back up off of her laurels and judy judy garland you're a beauty darlin

Cloud - Wildfire (free) 03:07
every flame wants to be a wildfire every day needs to lead to something says my mind looking back to when it all was better hard to see photos of my smiles i know if i want to live something’s got to give every night goes on as I’m mindless in it every light’s racing towards the ends of everything hard to hold photos of the one’s who left us every orgasm makes you wonder oh, “is this it?” this is it

Blame your sad face on the city, Blame your sad face on the sea, Blame the hours and the travel, But leave a spot upon the blacklist for you and me. Save a moment for a sit down, Save a second for a sleep, Save a decade for a new leaf and a hostile reception for you and me. Oh. Oh no, I'm fed up on a Tuesday. Oh. Oh no, I think we missed the boat. So here's a line about the system, and here's a line that's quite funny and here's a pop-culture reference and a lazy refrain like 'you and me'.

Magana - Inches Apart (free) 03:57
You were born with thicker skin And I am only oxygen Whispering, darling please don’t stay Because you can leave but I won’t wait When I’m cold And I’m lonely Hold me in your arms We’ll grow old We will only Be inches apart I have built my cell by hand I was dreaming of the southern sand And while every night you visit me Darling you are friends with misery When I’m cold And I’m lonely Hold me in your arms We’ll grow old We will only Be inches apart When I’m cold And I’m lonely Hold me in your arms We’ll grow old We will only Be inches apart Oceans won’t take you Oceans won’t take you Oceans won’t take you Oceans won’t take you

CHUCK - Becky (free) 04:03
How are you today? How’s your eggs? How’s your brain? How’s the girl With all those little pains Playin’ iPhone games Smokin’ Mary Jane Eatin’ Beef Lo Mein How are you tonight? How’s your back? How’s your Sprite? How’s the fear that you Can’t control your life? Can’t read or write? Can’t decide? Between red or white Becky You used to wanna be A painter with a cup of tea Cinnamon, Oolong, Iced, Green You’ll drink whatever you just need caffeine At your 9 to 5 You’re barely alive Always inside Always behind Dreamin’ of a place Where you can erase Every single trace of mankind A beach and sand And a summer tan Would make everything seem alright You gotta walk it off Downward facing dog You gotta get everything off your mind Becky You used to wanna be A painter with a cup of tea Cinnamon, Oolong, Iced, Green You’ll drink whatever you just need caffeine You wish you were a stream You wish you were a meme You wish you were nineteen

The weight of fears above the burrow Of teeth and fur and blood I clear my throat at a circle of sky From the back of the hole I dug Maybe I’ll bolt out into the snare From the back of the hole I dug And feel the cold metal wire tear At the fur and skin and sinew Around my throat I’ll lay and watch the long migrations And envy the southward bound formations All the world performs the same motions As I choke and wretch and spit and curse At my complications
