Track Name: Frog - Judy Garland
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
Track Name: Cloud - Wildfire
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
Track Name: Benjamin Shaw - You & Me
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'.
Track Name: Magana - Inches Apart
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
Track Name: CHUCK - Becky
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
Track Name: Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love - Burrow
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
