Track Name: The Good In Everyone - Manning Park
Brother's eyes
You're my favourite mirror
You put me on a throne
If I divide in two you'll see one side
Repeats in tangled letters
That spell your skin and bones

Brothers climb
Ragged on the ascent
And soft on the decline
Show the thrower how his feet decide
Like arrows on the front lawn
They guide you every night

Backseat fists and baseball gloves
There's a stutter in my wrist but my eyes say what I'm thinking of
And you read them like you're fluent now

Riding high
On the plaster footprints
That stalk the dresser drawer
They'll walk the laundry folds like skin before
While pressing feet meander
And stumble out the door

Backseat fists and baseball gloves
There's a stutter in my wrist but my eyes say what I'm thinking of
And you read them like you're fluent now

Backseat fists and baseball gloves
There's a stutter in my wrist but my eyes say what I'm thinking of
And you read them like you're fluent now
Track Name: Jessicka - Broke & Drunk
Haven't got a job or a penny to my name
I'm sewing up the holes in the rags that we call clothes
Not a single crumb we spent that money getting drunk
To keep our spirits up

To forget the dreams that didn't come to pass
The memories of better days long gone
Even the better ones yet to come
Broke and Drunk

We don't care about riches
We don't care about the fame
All we want to do is go on tour with our tunes
But how will we ever get our music off the ground
When the city keeps shutting all the places we play down
Even if we had a stage nobody'd be there anyway
They're tuckered out from the 9 to 5
They watch cable and drink box wine

To forget the dreams that didn't come to pass
The memories of better days long gone
Even the better ones yet to come
Broke and Drunk

Still I hold a hope I'll see my name in the marquee
And I'll get paid to play my song on late night TV
And we'll move from this apartment to the turrett down the street
We'll throw a huge party

To the dreams that finally have come to pass
The memories of harder days long gone
To how far we have come
From broke and drunk
Track Name: Dixie's Death Pool - Blue Flower
Walking backwards
Through the shrapnel
Of this life
A thousand days
Will quickly pass
A thousand ways
My love for you
Blue Flower
I woke up smelling smoke
Lights exploding
Any notion
Of yesterday
My mind’s in a million places
Places daylight erases
Well before this all just turns to salt
Before the angel’s flames bloom….
Blue Flower
Track Name: Angela Inglis - Moving Target
When the fever broke I saw you,
saw you standin' there
Had you been there all along?

Said I'd been gone for days, just ramblin'
At times not makin' sense
Things I should not have said

And you looked like you'd seen a ghost
but you were lookin' right at me

And if truth is a moving target
Looks different from all sides
Where's the ground I can put my feet on
to keep it in my sight?

All the townsfolk with their whisperin'
These voices in my head
Tellin' me lies again

Said you'd be headin' south for winter
Maybe be gone for good
Like I knew you would

And just because it was my voice
don't mean I had a choice

And if truth is a moving target
Looks different from all sides
Where's the ground I can put my feet on
to keep it in my sight?

And as you turned around to go
All I wanted you to know
Loved you better than myself
Maybe that's where I failed

And if truth is a moving target
Looks different from all sides
Where's the ground I can put my feet on
to keep it in my sight?
And if truth is a moving target
Looks different from all sides
Gimme ground I can put my feet on
to keep it in my sight
