Track Name: Lindenwood - Dogface
Your mother tries to stop you as you leave, now your childhood is obsolete.
Have a final look at your home, the mainstay that you've once owned.

The smell of death is no surprise.
The ground shattered before your eyes.
And how will everything last when all you know has turned to ash?

Try your best to be something more than brave.
Try your best not to regret the decision that you've made.
Your knees fail as structures do.
Your eyes can't even see it through.

Now you're blind.
Track Name: Haymaker - Southern Space
Please try to get by, along in this emptiness.
Inside where it's hard to breathe, you're calling me out but I can't hear a sound.
It's time to let go.

Why did it turn out so wrong?
It felt so weak to be strong from trying.
I know that we're world's apart, now I surrender from wishful thinking.

Throw it all away as close as I wanted you to stay.
As much as I want to I can't really have you right here with me now.
Rewriting these words you left somehow.

Loosing grip now, holding on to something that is barely existent.
Wishing you'e not too far so I could give you my heart for It will be safe.
I guess it's time to let go.

Why did it turn out so wrong?
It felt so weak to be strong from trying.
I know that we're world's apart, now I surrender from wishful thinking.

Throw it all away as close as I wanted you to stay.
As much as I want to I can't really have you right here with me now.
Rewriting these words you left somehow.

I dream of you tonight.
I know it's false reality but the more I make believe the more this life becomes my tragedy.
Track Name: Small Hands - Clasped Hands; Timid Hearts
Morning comes in monochromatic hues.
Weary eyes sway from side to side and through the door.
It's one of those things you grow accustomed to, one of those things you'll miss in fifteen years.

But there's today for now.
I quiver at the thought of you gone.

I'd dig up your bones so I could fill the gap you used to stay in.
The colder weather isn't the same without you here and I truly wish I could've been there to watch the love from your eyes fade to the life after.
Track Name: Fools & Foes - Blindfolded
Rain is pouring on time.
Idleness is our routine.
And we rest on nothing.
Empty days keep going by.

I find myself wanting everything but I can't decide.
As we drift to an empty space and wake up just the same.

I can't say that it's okay, 'been better days".

Living with a blindfold on, aimlessly wandering.
We are finding something to hold on to.

And when we find what we're looking for, it's nothing at all.
Track Name: Happy Monday People - Here In My Room
Hello somber and warm, four corners of my room.
I know you heard her story before, how she changed the way I looked at life, at love and loss.

Giggles, oh smiles and tears.
Your walls are a witness to it all .
How could you not warned me that she had been faking it all?

It's because in your fantasy was the only time you were happy.
And yet she felt surreal to me or maybe I'm just too scared in reality.

The figure of smile and your schemes, there's no way to forget them at all.
Oh damn my heart and mind in thinking we could end it all.
Track Name: Arthur - Take Me Away
I’ve been around and it's been awhile.
And I've been tryin', livin' like I should.
But following the flow I am sailing away, far away from you.
Oh I wonder if you can see me from here.
And realize by then that am losing control.
Oh my destiny's been dragging me away from where I want to be.

But won't you take a turn for a while?
Come closer let me see and hold you tight.
If only you could read me deep inside.
It could turn the tide, I'll take the risk just...

Take me away.
Cause I've been tired of living this way.
Just take me way and heaven won't be too far away with you.

Will I be counting all the dots in the line?
Will I be counting all the raindrops from sky?
Will I see my only chance just slowly fade away right in front of me?

But won't you take a turn for a while?
Come closer let me see and hold you tight.
If only you could read me deep inside.
It could turn the tide, I'll take the risk just...

Take me away.
Cause I've been tired of living this way.
Just take me way and heaven won't be too far away with you.

Take me away with you and let me feel what I have never felt before.
If gravity's much stronger we could have it all.
We could have it all.
We could turn the tides, just take a risk and take me away.
Track Name: The Mind Is A Terrible Thing - Soupsnake
I can honestly say that I have done almost anything to make each fight last for just one day.
But you’ve been making bad decisions when you’re angry.

Cut open my skull and see my brain and how it functions.
So you wouldn’t assume that I treat you just like the others.

Let’s have it your way.
Let’s not talk for days or weeks cause maybe it could solve this mess that we’ve been piling up.
Let’s have it your way.
I’m done losing sleep from arguments that shouldn’t have ever existed in the first place.

And all this time, I’ve considered what’s best for both of us; for me to let go of who I am.
But it only made things worse.
And now I feel that if I lose you, I’ll never have anything.

What’s the point of doing something about it, when everything I’ve done wouldn’t matter?
Track Name: Tropical Parts - Cakeflower
My dreams were flattened out way before, right from the start it was over.
The silence is ringing in my head, I can't decipher anything you say rope me up until it's all gone.
I've lost track from the times you weren't there.
My life is going nowhere.
I've sheltered myself long enough, from faces and things I've used to hate.
Release me (do you believe my tragedy?).
Delete me (or is it just insanity?).
This time I tried.
Well open your eyes, and I'll tell you.
I'll say it loud, I'll write it down just like the first time of knowing.
I'll say it loud, I'll write it down just like the first time of failing.
Stay in my dreams.
Track Name: Nevertheless - Victim
Alone and lost, faded desire.
Keeping the broken.
The pardon I seek will make me complete, my vindication.

Pave the way to clarity.

Haunted by the past of the untimely demise.
Taken for granted, another victim of regret.

Run away restless nights, avoid confinement.
My old disease creeps with the shadows of dead assumptions.

Halfway through the storm, searching for the answers.
The feeling will fade, dismay will claim liberation.
Track Name: The Skeleton Years - Turn Away
I don't feel it anymore.
I don't need you at all.
I'll find a way to make it work.
I'll let you know I'm not alone.

I won't try to forget.
I just have to take the risk
Letting go of my regrets.
I just wish you all the best.

I have learned to let you go.
I survive without a cure.
This is how I turn my world.
This is how we end it all.

Turning away...
Turn away...
Track Name: Molar - Shoegazing
This sight looks familiar, I feel like I've been here before.
Though you are not the same, everything else is.

"Is this just a dream?" or is that another reason to pretend that we can't face the truth or even talk about it?

You can’t face the truth.
Track Name: Glen Tiopez - Natapos Na Ang Tag-ulan
Natapos na ang tag-ulan, nagaabang na ang araw.
Wala pa bang masasakyan?
Sorbetes ko ay natutunaw.

Ipagdiriwang ko ang aking tagumpay na mag-isa.
Ilang gabi't araw akong nalulumbay nung lumisan ka.

Malamig na digmaan.
Libingan ng pag-ibig.
Alaalang pinaslang.
Barilan ng tahimik.

Madali lang sana kong magwawagi kung nandyan ka.
Ang nangyari ay ikaw pa ang s'yang katunaggali't nakabangga.

Kung maari ko lang malaman ang laman ng iyong damdamin.
Nagdalamahati ka din kaya o hinipan lamang ng hangin.

Natapos na ang tag-ulan.
Pudpod nang aking lapis.
Tapos na din ang kabanatang: "Ikaw pa din ang nais"

Halos lahat ng awit na sinulat ko'y may ihip mo.
Umaasang merong maisulat na bagong yugto.

Kung maari ko lang malaman ang laman ng iyong damdamin.
Nagdalamahati ka din kaya o hinipan lamang ng hangin ang sindi ng kandilang binalik ko sa'yo?
Samantalang di mabilang ang patak kong sinalo.
Track Name: Ralph Gonzalez - Curtain Call
Don't walk too slow or you'll fall behind.
They said stay out of this mess, keep your feet behind the lines.

How are you supposed to run if you have never walked?
I'm so over you.

I can finally say I've changed.
Happy everyday.
I've never walked this straight.
Don't know where I am going but I'm keeping on.

Go home.
Make me, I'd like to see you try.
Careful who you go out with you're supposed to be home by nine.

How are you supposed to run if you have never walked?
I'm so over you.

I can finally say I've changed.
Happy everyday.
I've never walked this straight.
Don't know where I am going but I'm keeping on.

Say what you want to say, my friend.
Don't be afraid to speak your mind.
Now would be the best time and then you'll start to feel.

I can finally say I've changed.
Happy everyday.
I've never walked this straight.
Don't know where I am going but I'm keeping on.
