Track Name: yeenar - 80/20
the craters on the moon
are there for me and you
our plane is leaving soon

i brought a box of seeds
a stack of cool CDs
don't bail out on me
pretty please

baruch atah adonai
i don't know why i even try
some scumbag jacked my bike
smack in the midst of the night
since dinner's been cinnamon cereal
and hypo-manic delirium
instinctive indecision clouds my 80/20 vision

try to go to sleep
to taste the sweet relief
but it finds me in my dreams

and it makes me grind my teeth
and sweat between the sheets
when i wake i can't retrieve my memories

baruch atah adonai
i don't know why i even try
some scumbag jacked my bike
smack in the midst of the night
since dinner's been cinnamon cereal
and hypo-manic delirium
instinctive indecision clouds my 80/20 vision

Track Name: Architect The Destroyer - Cherry Wine
Honey I wish to rid you of this curse that haunts you
Wash away the pain with chardonnay in the bathroom
Horizontal lines sink deep in your skin and mind
I'll mend what's left I've been absent for some time
So ease your mind tonight

As we sleep at night
Your lips are stained with cherry wine
Track Name: Andross - Needa
well I could understand why you felt lost
no rhyme or reason
no direction to my aging
and I know it like the back of my hand
I’d make a tired old man
a far cry from anything extolling

when there’s no reason for it
you know you just can’t blame yourself
a lifer forgiven
so kill me quick - love is a slow death

but who will strike fear in the heart
of those you loved so dear from the start
and you slow dance with all your memories of it
with a weight that holds you down
but you carry it around with you
you carry it around

so when you sing this song
I hope it’s me you’re conjuring
and these poor excuses
for getting older

and nothing seems real
‘cause I’m not all here
and I’ve been walking in my sleep
Track Name: Adventure Lost - Istanbul
Stop! Stop now it’s not too late, this mind is going to break.
Stop! Stop! I can hear him say he’s going to take my life away.
Night is almost here, I fear I hear him at my door.
Close my eyes and hope to die, I just can’t take much more…

In the night you fight your war, thinking you can win.
But every night you’re losing more, and still you let me in…

Stop! Stop! I won’t let you in, now let this fight begin.
My mind is my enemy so I will take you down with me.
Step inside my mind and try and find a sign of life.

Now that you’re inside I lock the door and light the fuse….

[countdown from 16]

Finally you’ve given in; now your life is mine.
How could you think that you’d win? Now show me what you hide…

Finally my war is done, but I don’t feel I’ve won.
I’m going back into the night, I’ll wait there for the sun…
