I Am Kloot - Proof

Hey, could you stand another drink
I'm better when I don't think
It seems to get me through
Say, d'you wanna spin another line
Like we had a good time
Not that I need proof

Great Lake Swimmers - I Could Be Nothing

You would be nothing without me
I could be nothing
Said the waves to the sand
I could be nothing without you

Patrick Wolf - The Bachelor

'Cause I'm not gonna marry in the fall
And I'm not gonna marry in the spring
I'll never marry - marry at all
No one will wear my silver ring
Wear my silver ring, boy

Noah Gundersen - Fire

I am looking for freedom
In the wild eyes of the dancing girls

Chris Garneau - Between the Bars

Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't but you might
The potential you'll be that you'll never see
The promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now
And forget all about the pressure of days
Do what I say and I'll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head

Nouvelle Vague - Master and Servant

Domination's the name of the game
In bed or in life
They're both just the same
Except in one you're fulfilled
At the end of the day

April Smith and the Great Picture Show - Beloved

you were the thrill
that stilled my beating heart baby
you are the one i'll dream the most
but if i cannot have the real thing
i'll gladly settle for you ghost
i'll gladly settle for you ghost

Clint Mansell - Together We Will Live Forever


The Tiger and Me - Lead a Merry Dance Around the Fire

Comotose, and worse!
Under the influence of her superior thinking.
I left around the best bit,
but I think it only made her more appealing. 
Now i'm something of a foreigner
With wonder in my eyes
But she's trying almost everything
To aid in my demise

Of Monsters and Men - Love Love Love

And these fingertips
Will never run through your skin
And Those bright blue eyes
Can only meet mine across the room
Filled with people that are less important than you

Okkervil River - Song of our So-Called Friends

Your face’s falling tears,
to me they’re lovely and they’re dear,
though you don’t love me and it’s clear that I will never see you in my arms.
There’s no room in your heart for even this finely-sharpened dart;
although I had started to think there might be hope,
it isn’t so

The Decemberists - This is Why We Fight

So come to me
Come to me now
Lay your arms around me
And this is why
This is why
We fight
Come hell
Come hell
Come hell
Come hell

Destroyer - Farrar, Straus, and Giroux

But if that is what it takes
If that is what it takes
If that is what it takes
To be a stone, a stone's throw from your throne
No man has ever hung at the temporary age of 24
Both feet on the floor

Anais Mitchell - Why We Build the Wall (feat. Greg Brown)

Why do we build the wall?
We build the wall to keep us free
That’s why we build the wall
We build the wall to keep us free

1. Ben Howard - Keep Your Head Up

Keep your head up, keep your heart strong
Keep your mind set, keep your hair long
Keep your head up, keep your heart strong
Keep your mind set in your ways
Keep your heart strong

2. The Civil Wars - Disarm

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what i choose is my choice
What's a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you

3. The Mountain Goats - This Year

I am going to make it through this year
if it kills me
I am going to make it though this year
if it kills me

4. Greg Laswell - Your Ghost

I can't drink this coffee
till i put you in my closet
let him shoot me down
and let him call me off
take it from his whisper
you're not that tough

5. The Dodos - Fools

His son is his prize, he tells a few lies
He's got his father's eyes, it's in his father's eyes
And he thinks in his mind that he's just getting by
But he's a compromise, he's just a compromising fool

6. Thomas Newman - The Letter That Never Came


7. Dry the River - No Rest

Did you see the light in my heart?
Did you see the sweat on my brow?
Did you see the fear in my heart?
Did you see me bleeding out?

8. Sufjan Stevens - Abraham 

Abraham, worth a righteous one. 
Take up on the wood, 
put it on your son. 
Lake or lamb. 
There is none to harm. 
When the angel came, 
you had raised your arm. 

9. City and Colour - Sleeping Sickness

And I'm afraid
To sleep because of what haunts me
Such as living with the uncertainty
That I'll never find the words to say
Which would completely explain
Just how I'm breaking down

10. Of Monsters and Men - Mountain Sound

Some had scars and some had scratches
It made me wonder about their past
And as I looked around
I began to notice
That we were nothing like the rest

[1] Daniel Licht - The Truth


[2] The Civil Wars - You Are My Sunshine

The other night dear, as I lay sleep​ing
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried.

[3] Chris Garneau - Between the Bars

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

[4] The Cinematic Orchestra - That Home

Where the doors are moaning all day long,
Where the stairs are leaning dusk 'till dawn,
Where the windows are breathing in the light,
Where the rooms are a collection of our lives,
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place that I call my home...

[5] Andrew Bird - The Naming of Things

hey, just look at the mess you made today
didn't really think it would get this bad
hey, feel like you're living in a Russian play
where it seems like you made everybody mad

[6] Coconut Records - This Old Machine

This old machine
Has been good to me
All of my life
I've waited for you

[7] The Civil Wars - 20 Years

There's a note underneath your front door that I wrote twenty years ago
Yellow paper and a faded picture
And a secret in an envelope
There's no reasons
No excuses
There's no secondhand alibis
Just some black ink on some blue lines and a shadow you won't recognize
In the meantime I'll be waiting for twenty years and twenty more
I'll be praying for redemption and your note underneath my door
And your note underneath my door 

[8] Alexandre Desplat - The Resurrection Stone


[9] Beirut - A Sunday Smile

All I want is the best for our lives my dear,
and you know my wishes are sincere.
What's to say for the days I cannot bear

[10] Cat Power - I Found a Reason

Oh I do believe
In all the things you see
What comes is better than what came before

[11] Dry the River - Demons

Under the weight of belief
You shiver and shake like a leaf.
But death is a force, not a man on a horse:
I’ll keep you safe while you sleep.

[12] Boondock Saints OST - Blood of Cuchulainn


[13] Elvis Perkins - While You Were Sleeping

while you were sleeping
the babies grew
the stars shined and the shadows moved
time flew, the phone rang
there was a silence when the kitchen sang
its songs competed like kids for space
we stared for hours in our maker's face
they gave us picks
said go mine the sun
and gold and come back when you're done

[14] First Aid Kit - You're Not Coming Home Tonight

The ship is sailing 
I'll meet you on the other side
The future's unclear
But hopefully it will be fine
You're not coming home tonight

[15] Fleet Foxes - Your Protector

As you lay to die beside me, babyOn the morning that you came,Would you wait for me,the other one,would you wait for me?
[16] Greg Laswell - This Woman's Work

I should be crying but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping but I can't stop thinking
Of all the things I should've said that I never said
All the things we should've done that we never did
All the things I should've given but I didn't

[17] The Head and the Heart - Down in the Valley

So I wish I was a slave to an age-old trade
Lord have mercy on my rough and rowdy ways.

[18] James Howard Newton - The Gravel Road

By land, by sea, by dirigible
We'll leave our tracks untraceable now

But a dollar says he'll lick that devil
And do it alone
Do it alone

[5] Bowerbirds - In Our Talons
And no, you're not alone. No, my cousins, you're not alone.
You're in our talons now, and we're never letting go.
You're in our headlights, frozen, and no, we're not stopping.
You may not believe, but even we were scared at first.
It takes a lot of nerve to destroy this wondrous earth.
We're only human; this at least we've learned.

[6] Tunng - Bullets
We're catching bullets in our teeth
It's hard to do but they're so sweet
And if they take a couple out
We try to work things out
We catching bullets with our
Heads and hearts and all the darkest parts of us
It's strange to find such light
In such endless night

[7] The Avett Brothers - Die Die Die
You can try to swim the sea
But say goodbye to you and me
You can try to swim the sea
You can try to hold the breeze
You can try to hide the sun
But say goodbye to everyone

Once a jester
Now a king
His court remains untouched
The crown that sat upon his head
Through deeds of greatness
And not just through his father's blood in his veins

The lion's outside of your door
The wolf's in your bed
The lion's claws are sharpened for war
The wolf's teeth are red

FANMIX - Roy Mustang



[1] A Whisper in the Noise - The Times They Are A-Changin'

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'

[2] Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head

He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh and I'm gonna buy this place, that's what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

[3] The National - Start a War

We expected something
Something better than before
We expected something more

And this dirt was a building before
Shut it down before they opened the door
Don't shout, don't holler, don't you cry
What is passed, we'll just leave it behind

[5] Adrian Johnston - Guilt


[6] Johnny Flynn - Barnacled Warship

Gotta get out, gotta shout, gotta sing
Gotta dance, gotta jump, gotta run
Think I'll fight a war, I don't know what for
But I'll learn when I get my gun

[7] City and Colour - At the Bird's Foot (Vocal)

What about the eleven
Men at the bottom 
Who sank into an underwater grave
And while they were sinking 
And their lungs filled with oil 
They must have been screaming
Screaming to be saved

[8] The Decemberists - After the Bombs

After the bombs subside
And this long, low campaign
Calls it good for the night
We meet in the streets
Will we meet in a bar’s cold light?
We grip at our hands
We hold just a little tight

[9] Hellsing OST - Pure Dead


[10] Johnny Cash - Hurt

I hurt myself today,
To see if I still feel,
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real,

The needle tears a hole,
The old familiar sting,
Try to kill it all away,
But I remember everything

[11] Woodkid - Wasteland

Most of my sweet memories were buried in the sand
The fire and the pain will now be coming to an end
How did you get to save me from this desolate wasteland
In your eyes I see the dawn of brighter days again.

[12] Nico Vega - Coal Miners Song

I will dance upon the moon in a graveyard full of man.
I'll paint my lips all black and blue and wear them white diamonds.
I'll curtsy to the only friend that I have ever had, 
And blow a kiss to the milkyway in hopes that he ain't mad.
I'll drive a bus to Venus where I'll meet them small blue man.
And all my secrets I will tell to every one of them.

Would you cry on your bedroom floor,
And tattoo my name underneath your arm?

Crab claws and bottles of rum

Make a deal with God
And get him to swap our places

Sleeping dog beside you

You're the prayer inside me

[9] The Avett Brothers - Head Full of Doubt, Road Full of Promise

There was a dream
One day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid, with a head full of doubt
So I scream til I die or the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

[10] Sufjan Stevens - For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless in Ypsilanti

Like a father to impress
Like a mother's mourning dress
If we ever make a mess 
I'll do anything for you

[11] Yann Tiersen - Mother's Journey


[12] Noah Gundersen - David

I keep kicking at the curb with my worn out shoes
and I keep running into stranger's that say I know you
and I don't wanna be a proud man just wanna be a man.
A little less like my father and more like my dad.

[13] Dark Dark Dark - Who Needs Who

Oh I have the memory of trust
I try to keep it close
And oh, I am
The memory of trust
I swallow it whole
And from the mouth of you
A constant coo
Who, needs who?

[14] Bon Iver - The Wolves (Act I and II)

Someday my pain, someday my pain
Will mark you
Harness your blame, harness your blame
And walk through
