Track Name: Jake Lyman - This Song
I wrote this song to say
How much I love this song
This is the song
I wrote this song
I love this song

This very song right now
This is the song I love
Inspired by this song
I wrote this song
I love this song

And when I think about songs
This is the song
That comes to my head
Now for the chorus of this song:
I love this song
Track Name: Emily Brown - Mrs. Arnolfini
My lover, yoked in furs, choked in feathers
I have learned, I’ve inferred
He’s not for you, he is for me

I stand, hand outstretched, ropes of metal around my neck
I’ve been led to expect he is for me

We’re here with our dog
He and the painter are talking shop
Hope he catches the fall of the cloth
the shade of green

My lover here with me
One hand blessing, one outreached
I can see he is for me, he is for me
Track Name: Ben Swisher feat. Alyssa Pyper - Spontaneous Particulars
One note from a bird
Better than a million words

Likely a commotion ruminate
Exciting! I feel at home

Oh that I had wings like a dove
For then would I fly away
And be at rest

Waterfall
Grasped by God
Track Name: Fragile Cat - Garfield May 17, 1987
Stop being so melodramatic
Garfield, you’ve only been on your diet for ten minutes
Mmm, food! I love food!
Garfield, your eating is out of control
More food!

Garfield, your eating is out of control!
Looks like you’re eating the entire world!
Eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it

More trainloads of food! Airdrop food into my mouth!
More cattle! Hurry! I am hungry!
Oh, dessert—Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn
Seems I have eaten the entire universe

Garfield, your eating is out of control!
Looks like you’ve eaten the entire world!
Eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it
Track Name: Eli Scheer - 51
Glancing backward where there once was a door
Follow the memory—know you’ve been here before
Is this something new, or has it always been?
Start to understand and see it to the end

Connect every point with a straight line
Straight lines collide
Compose your own shape with each new line
New lines decide

Each step closer—another voice to be heard
All of these lines and all of them blurred
Track Name: Jared Gay - Sing me a song!
There's a tombstone I see
Every time I cross 9th East
One word stands visible to me
It's my last name, and says where I'll yet be

Let me hear you sing
And feel a feeling that I only
Feel when I’m awake
It's someone who's alive today

Let me hear you sing
Sing me a song please
Before I'm gone
Please let me hear you sing
Track Name: Ben Meyer - Hudson River School
Is it real? The sun, the peaks, the woods?
A place that I never understood
Showers of light, paint strokes of lies
Could it be another kind of miracle?

Could it be real?

A tree so green, a deer serene
an out-of-this-worldy scene, his fantasy
Would you believe he came across it naturally?

Would you believe?

A note he wrote from The Hudson River School,
it’s ok if none of it’s real
it’s ok if none of it’s real
it’s ok if none of it’s real

Would you believe?
Could it be real?
Track Name: Tom Brinton - dumplings and a park bench
Walked the bad streets of New York for three weeks
Never got offered nothing, but Newsweek
Front covers were littered, with new speak
some double-plus-ungood Crimethinkin' thinkpiece

Got some dumplings and found me a park bench
Saw a dad and his daughter, just playing catch
Heard a worker explode at his torque wrench
I smelled Texaco gas through the mesh fence
Track Name: Emily Golightly - Paris Night
Only the lonely remember the sky
Of a Paris night
Of a Paris night

So swirling and twirling
he painted the stars
Of the Paris Night
On a Paris night
Maybe he saw them through his teardrops
And caught some impression of the truth
That blazing and burning
So high above,
They were lonely too.

She took a chance
Came to France to find love
On a Paris night
To share a Paris night.

She smiles while she strolls beside the Sacre Couer.
And ambling through Musee Dorsay too.
But she feels the pain within the paint-strokes they all call beautiful.  

For who needs the starry starry skies?
If all the light that fills your life
Shines from a lover's eyes?

So only the lonely look up at the sky
Of a Paris Night.
Track Name: officer jenny - the actual goddamn bible
there will be light by the time i arrive
i guess i might perish but i'll probably survive
god fooled me with adam and eve
i have no more tricks up my sleeve

i get off on the sins of the earth
and i love to buy shit despite what little it's worth
god fooled me with adam and eve
i have no more tricks up my sleeve

i will bruise the heel of the lord
but a bruise isn't much, the lord will probably heal
god fooled me with adam and eve
i have no more tricks up my sleeve
