Track Name: Matt Sucich - Supposing I Was Tough
As it's looking I'm hung up on names,
and as it's looking you're all the same.
It's looking like I'm counting days,
from my finest mistake.

and I love how you're eyeing me,
but I'm keeping my distance, baby.

'cause I'm supposed to know/yea it's supposed to knock me out/supposing I was tough when I met you/suppose I had my good foot down.

As it's looking I'm just killing time,
watching the past & the seasons intertwine.
As it's looking I've drawn a line,
but I can't keep a steady hand, half the time.

and I love how you're eyeing me,
but I'm keeping my distance, baby.

'cause I'm supposed to know/yea it's supposed to knock me out/supposing I was tough when I met you/suppose I had my good foot down.

Oh, you oughta leave.
Oh, just go on, baby.

As it's looking I'm miles away,
Yea, I'm better off playing safe.
And you know that I can't complain,
I'll be loved 'til my dying day.

Yea I'm supposed to know/yea it's supposed to knock me out/supposing I was tough when I met you/suppose I had my good foot down.
Track Name: Niall Connolly - Skin and Bones
Skin and Bones
I woke up
with "go home" written backwards on my cheek
feeling like a cryptic crossword clue
like a jigsaw's missing piece

staying up all night
isn't going to make it last
worrying about it
isn't going to bring it back
i feel like i am carrying water in my hands
if i could believe you, then I'd have a glass

but i can't

We are just skin and bones and blood without love without love.

I want to rest where the trees grow tall
enough for men to feel small, enough, to think straight.
I want to say every kind word i've been thinking of
I want to do it without fear, I want to do it without shame,
I want to do it,
Every single day

We are just skin and bones and blood without love, without love
We Are just skin and bones and blood without love, without love
( I hope my God has a plan for me , for me,
I hope my God has a plan for me, for me..)
Track Name: The Sky Captains of Industry - Alchemist (live @ Bar 4)
Alchemist, Alchemist
Please turn my lead heart to gold
Make all my organs a
Glittering sight to behold
But I wanna leave something for show
When they draw out my soul through my nose
Put it in a jar

Rocketman, Rocketman
Take me to work when you go
Promise to only bring questions whose
Answers you know
I know that it's cold and it's far
But I wanna get close to a star
It's so hard, here in a jar

Lover discover we're
Deep in the future it seems
The circles are real but the
Lines just exist in our dreams
These days I just can't see the sky
But it's clean and it's warm and it's dry
So please, leave my trapdoor ajar
So I can feel the moon and the sun and the stars
It's just a breath of my little lead heart
Here in a jar
Track Name: All Night Chemists - Another Day
All of the things that you haven't said
are dying for another chance
what burned out wont disappear
so let go cause you know what you want to hear
but no one ever said you should borrow
a temporary setting of sorrow

You're giving them something they can understand
it's hard to believe that it's all been planned
ten years now, maybe more
ran out like a thief through the golden door
but no one ever said you should follow
so close your eyes and wait till tomorrow

sooner or later
another day will wake you up
and you'll find a way to leave it all behind

Turn it on till it doesn't end
flowers to feast for an old new friend
helping to see while you fell to the floor
you can't hold all the things that you held before

no one ever said it was so wrong
to say just what you want to when we're alone

And I'm not complaining
I love the way it never stops
but sooner or later
another day will wake you up
and you'll find away to leave it all behind

it doesn't matter what they said
it's harder to leave when you're going back
sunlights breaking in your eyes
everything is clearer it's no surprise
you found out what you thought was impossible
you don't need anything to be honorable

another day will wake you up
Track Name: Anthony Mulcahy- The Cúilín
We watched him cry,
then tried to take the sand from his eyes.
With yellow kites,
as we raced around the rocks from the tide.

Just a dream,
where the river played out its last scene.
Just a dream,
with a little piece of us in between.

The shaggy dogs,
roiled the angry mob from the town.
You're on our land,
this sacred hallowed place for our clan.

Just a dream,
where the river played out its last scene.
Just a dream,
with a little piece of us in between.

You dared me cross,
to the no mans land to the west.
As your mother watched,
and we all know your mother knows best.

Just a dream,
where the river played out its last scene.
Just a dream,
with a little piece of us in between.

Has anyone seen the time?
The last dip before the tide,
claims the sand from our feet.
Don't leave without me.
Don't leave without me.

Just a dream,
where the river played out its last scene.
Just a dream,
with a little piece of us in between,
with a little piece of us in between,
with a little piece of you and me.
