Track Name: Tyson Ballew - York Farm
I bet that garden is in bloom
today is resplendent it reminds me of you
you live you're life like you're walking on a wire
after days like this you're gonna feel tired

Honestly what could be better than this?
On a bench you remind me with a kiss.

Somedays I wish I was with you
In the darkness, the darkness of your room
every room deserves a window for a view
so at night the aether shines it's light for you

But honestly what could be better than this?
On a bench you surprise me with a kiss.

Well now you're distant i feel totally disconected
Honestly it came a little unexpected
I thought we were farmers I thought we would figure this all out
Replant the seed and watch it start to sprout

Honestly what could be better than this?
On a bench you remind me with a kiss.
Track Name: Tyson Ballew - Fiat Currency
You must think everything is free
That gasoline comes at a donation policy
Or I live to the highest integrity
That I'm not a slave to the fiat currency

So I'll work in the service industry
I'll give people exactly what they need
Cause I don't work in a music factory
To myself I will keep all of these dreams

I think you're full of shit when you don't throw in the hat
You came to the house show but all you brought was yourself a 6 pack
You're only concern is fueling you're internal needs
When a little bit of charity could fuel this community

Say goodbye to the DIY band
We pave the way for the privilege of the corporation
This song's not about commerce and what you pay for
it's about sacrifice friendship and so much more

But you'll never truly understand
You weren't there you weren't in the van
after a bad show in Kennewick Washington
No you'll never know that sort of frustration
Track Name: Tyson Ballew - The Lucky Dumpster
The sun began to set and we went through Chuckanut Drive
No learners permit yet but I know we'll survive
Your glittering brilliance it's always in bloom
I felt this spark since that show at the Honeymoon

Before you left me in your dust
To do what you must
There was no comparison
a perfect day spent in Bow-Edison

There's a librarian with eyes like a Kawasaki
She's a nobel citizen and she's the girl for me
Her heart is tender her mind is sharp
She's great for conversations or kisses in the dark

she leaves me in her dust
to do what she must
but there was no comparison
a perfect day in Bow-Edison

The winter gets cold I could feel us getting old
stuck in routine feeling bad and watching movies
you had to leave it was hard to see this end
hardest still was losing my best friend

as you leave me in your dust
to do what you must
but there was no comparison
a perfect day in Bow-Edison
Track Name: Tyson Ballew - Pamphleteer
This is a weakerthans song. Google their lyrics. They are great.
Track Name: Ethan Uhl - Get Out
well you said it was time we leave this place, i said it was time for you to run away
but there were more rocks in my shoes than i could ever count, and hear me out
i can't talk since they put me down

and like it ever mattered, i turned to an old friend
to emulate your speed away from the big sky state
but i could never get away from this town
it's a lost and found of shitty dudes and i'm bummed out

and when i think of you, all i ever feel is hate
but what's the point it's just a face on a page

but i can still see its grinning teeth
gouging into me
the past that i wanted to cut clean
and get out!

get out!
Track Name: Ethan Uhl - ¿Que Pasa, Y'all?
i like the way your mouth scrunches up when you're about to laugh
like you don't want it to show, a shy elephant's child, i always think about that
the way you fall asleep, you pressed so hard onto me
wrinkles of my tshirt in the spots you felt at peace

like these wings flying me a way, i feel so empty without
the things that make me whole, the silence between the sounds
and i try i try i try not to make myself as small as possible
but when i wake up without you, burnin from the nightmares, i feel so cold

i don't wanna settle for a home that just feels vacant without you
i'd always make too much breakfast, i'd just talk to the walls
i'd call out your name like were in the other room

i wanna hear all your thoughts, i wanna hear all your jokes again and again
like it's not a love song, it's a need song, it's a song by you and me song
like Reign Over Me i'd slowly come to a scream, so i'll pull my knees
i wanna feel you breathe
Track Name: Ethan Uhl - Lucas
you always took the risk, never doubted your chances
we were the kings of the summer all year round, we were young and reckless
this song's called 20 hours, because it didnt even take a day
for you to clear out all your shit and go away

like being held down and beaten, i saw it all fade to black
34 sodas for ten bucks in a tied up trash bag

and i remember when we would talk and sing
shitheads until 6 am when we would finally get to sleep
but now all it is to me
is like a curtain going down on my memories
like it's the end and i know

everyone who knew us, never would have doubted, maybe never would have said it out loud
that there was fire in your breath, there were only broken teeth in your mouth

i was 6 years old again, forgetting you at school
like you remembered the whole time but tried to play it cruel
like i was winning everything i wanted to lose

and i am trembling, i am shaking, and i can't pretend that i don't know
you were the one friend it was hardest to finally let go
i am the black tape with your picture, born into the world as snow
but stained so red now it made a brown spot in the grass below
i ran out to the backyard, losing my breath, fighting the woods like they were you
breaking stick after branch looking for a hint or a tiny clue
that you're still around, that you exist
that you aren't just the smell of medication and piss
Track Name: Ethan Uhl - Beaches of Cheyenne
