Jason Sullivan Every once in a while, a record label comes around that captures the excitement, and devotion to music that you felt when you were a teen spending your parent's hard earned cash on some noisy soundscape that would drive them nuts....
This is that label. \m/ O_O \m/ Favorite track: Fingerprints.

Track Name: Crawl - Crack Tea
[instrumental]
Track Name: Place of Skulls - Thorn in the Flesh
I’m running the race that’s set before me
And I’ve been a disgrace in the war that calls me
But if I didn’t bleed, back in the mud I’d be

A labor of love in this battle I’m sent
Where the dark would hang me if I lived in regret
So I carry on even if I fall
Brothers together, even when we crawl.

By nature’s desire, I’d plunk it to the wind
My jar of clay is treasure when I’ve nothing to give
Let my weakness be what makes me strong

Let this thorn keep me, hold my pride down low
Without it I’d reap what my flesh would sew
So brother carry on even if we fall
Even when we bleed, from the mud we crawl.
Track Name: Sweet Cicada - Fingerprints
Seen in the eyes of those
Whom they have led astray
Heard through the mouths of those
Who mock and turn away

May Adonai...
May Adonai rebuke you

I smell you in the stench of death
And rotting moral decay
Evidence you leave wherever you walk,
It betrays you...

I know, I see they live among us
I see, I know their fingerprints

I see you!
I see you!
I see you!
I see you!

May Adonai...
May Adonai rebuke you!

The truth He shows me
Every time you try to sell the same old lies!

Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face
Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face
Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face
I won’t give you a place in my heart...

No place.
Track Name: St. Madness - Arizona
Rattlesnakes and flames
Across the desert plains
The eagle flies majestic in the sky

The Spirit will make you love
The red rocks bathed in blood
And the land where so many warriors have died

Up above in Arizona skies
From the fires of Hell
Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise
Arizona take me home

Some say the heat's too much
In the Valley of the Sun
But it's the place that we're proud to call home

The sun sets every night
Watching canvases go by
Each painted by the Great Spirit's hands

Up above in Arizona skies
From the fires of Hell
Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise
Arizona take me home

Rattlesnakes and flames
Across the desert plains
The eagle flies majestic in the sky

The Spirit will make you love
The red rocks bathed in blood
And the land where so many warriors have died

Up above in Arizona skies
From the fires of Hell!
Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise
Arizona take me home

Up above in Arizona skies
From the fires of Hell
Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise
Arizona take me home

Take me home...
Track Name: Jet Black Vicar - Caterpillar
The caterpillar crawled
Into his house of stone

Ah-hah...
Ah-hah...
The caterpillar crawled...yeah

He made a chrysalis
He prayed and did his best

Ah-hah...
Ah-hah...
He made a chrysalis...yeah

He disappeared inside
In green and gold to hide

Ah-hah...
Ah-hah...
Asleep for weeks inside...yeah

Reappeared with mighty wings
Unfolding them, he sings:

Ah-hah...!
Ah-hah...!
Above the crawling things...he flies

He flies...
He flies...
He flies...

Track Name: Troglodyte Dawn - Flower
Father, take this seed
For I am waiting among the weeds
Plant me in the fertile ground
Where Your richness and mercies abound

Where my life was undone,
Something new had begun

Break me - my shell
Cause my spirit inside to swell
Guide me through the toil
Move me up through the soil

Will I fade away?
Or die in the heat of the day?
I want to push on through
An in the morning bring glory to You

Drench me with living rain
That I may never thirst again
Clothe me in your grace
Safe and warm in Your Son's embrace

For He who began this good work in me
Is able and faithful to make it complete
I'll turn to His light
and His goodness repeat
Over and over again...

See me, I'm alive!
In Your garden I grow and thrive
Gentle, calm and still
I am rooted within Your will

And as my petals unfold
Speaking mysteries long foretold
The world is not enough room
For the faith of a flower in bloom

Track Name: REDD - Hope [acoustic version]
Hello mother,
How have you been?

It’s been such a long, long time
When will I see you again?

I barely remember
The sound, of your voice

I lay awake at night
Wishing I had a choice

Father above hear me cryin’
Can you guide me, towards the light?

Resented pleasure, the rose that’s wilted
Coming; undone

Show me how
It ends, just fine

Show me how
It’ll be, alright

Give me a reason,
Give me a sign

Send me an angel,
Bring me to life

Eight years has gone so fast..
The memories we made..

Never seemed to last..

And I’m left here by myself..
Loneliness enshadows me

Creating my hell

Father above hear me cryin’
Can you guide me, towards the light?

Resented pleasure, the rose that’s wilted
Coming; undone

Show me how
It ends, just fine

Show me how
It’ll be, alright

Give me a reason,
Give me a sign

Send me an angel,
Bring me to life

I remember your name
I remember your face

I’m sorry that-
I’ve brought you shame

How can I live
In my disgrace?

Lyrics by Christopher Michaud

Track Name: Tommy and the Tones - Angel [single version]
I'm in love with an angel
But that angel doesn't love me
If I could make that angel
See how true my love can be

I'll tell her I love her
I'll tell her I care
And I'll ask her to share
Her love with me
For eternity
Oh angel, please be mine

Angel, please be mine...

I'm in love with an angel
But that angel doesn't love me
If I could make that angel
See how true my love can be

I'll tell her I love her
I'll tell her I care
And I'll ask her to share
Her love with me
For eternity
Oh angel, please be mine

Angel, please be mine...

Lyrics by Tommy York
Track Name: Beth Patterson - Scorch
Common sense would tell us
To share and share alike
But now the iron’s hot as hell
I say it’s time to strike
I sought to ask one question:
Have once again I failed?
What must I do to qualify,
My efforts to avail?

She told me scorch
Clear the damage with a torch
Raze it to the ground and start it all again
Drive out all impurities
Purging flame will set you free
Rise from the scree and face down what’s within
Go forth and scorch

For don’t you know that if you strike
An iron that’s still hot
Then it won’t even matter
If you qualify or not
I posed another question:
How can I sustain the burn?
How can I keep on going
With blind corners every turn?

She told me scorch
Clear the damage with a torch
Raze it to the ground and start it all again
Drive out all impurities
Purging flame will set you free
Rise from the scree and face down what’s within
Go forth and scorch

I had a final question
(The darkest of my fears):
Can it truly break the curse
That I’ve borne so many years?
No more the sword of Damocles
Will hang above your head
A lion’s heart, a steady hand
Will be your lot instead

She told me scorch
Clear the damage with a torch
Raze it to the ground and start it all again
Drive out all impurities
Purging flame will set you free
Rise from the scree and face down what’s within
Go forth and scorch

Track Name: Snaketown Syndicate - Lullaby
[instrumental]
Track Name: D.T. Seizure - Kraken
Trapped inside time as a slave to the brine
Your human form no longer seen
As power you wield immortality's shield
Forever, never ending you've been

Under Olympus rule, you would not play the fool
So they damned you to obscurity
Twisted by fate, increasing your hate
Condemned to a life in the sea

So now you dwell in a world you call Hell
Sanity rests on a knife
Freedom is shut out
Oh God! How you want out!
Your lust is a vengeance on life

Ages ago, you held a young man's beliefs
In search of a God-given fate
Destiny undaunted, your mortal soul haunted
Delivered anew to Hell's gates

Your memory drowns as time runs you down
You scream for a life you now miss
Your cries and your pleas aren't heard overseas
They don't even know you exist

Offered up for your pain, a maiden in chains
A vision of virginal bliss
You need little force and feel no remorse
In giving her death's solemn kiss

So now you dwell in a world you call Hell
Sanity rests on a knife
Freedom is shut out
Oh God! How you want out!
Your lust is a vengeance on life

Ages ago, you held a young man's beliefs
In search of a God-given fate
Destiny undaunted, your mortal soul haunted
Delivered anew to Hell's gates

Leviathan...destroyer of the deep
Forsaken one...'til death is done, you cannot sleep!

Prophecy fulfilled in horrifying tone
Chilled to the bone
Stand alone
Turned to stone...

Track Name: Ultimatum - Never
What’s it worth, what is the cost?
Sell myself, integrity lost
Keeping up with the trends
Changing styles, it never ends
I was this but now I am that
Never me, deny my past

Selling out to the crowds
Circle goes around and around to sellout
SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never!

Selling out to the crowds
Circle goes around and around to sellout
SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never!

Looking back on what was
Then apologize to you my friend
Look at me, I’m the focus
Integrity is not for us
Sell more units to please the suits
Fill their pockets, forget the Truth
No matter what be on the charts

What’s it worth and what is the cost to sellout?
SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never!

What’s it worth and what is the cost to sellout?
SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never!

For a price go to the top, SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never, Never!

What’s it worth, what is the cost?
Sell myself, integrity lost
Keeping up with the trends
Changing styles, it never ends
I was this but now I am that
Never me, deny my past

Selling out to the crowds
Circle goes around and around to sellout
SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never!

Selling out to the crowds
Circle goes around and around to sellout
SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never!

For a price go to the top, SELLOUT!
In the Land of Never, NEVER!

Track Name: My Silent Wake - And So it Comes to an End [Keys to the Mix]
From the distant waters
Her siren's song came
Now their hell, then your heaven
As you whispered her name

This moment changes everything
Nothing will ever be the same again

And in your faces
Joy has drained from your eyes
The dream, the journey is over
Can you rebuild the empty shell of your lives?

This fleeting moment in time

When you come to your senses
There is nothing left to look upon
Finality the bitter pill
And the clocks keep ticking on

Another midlife crisis
Trust slipping away
Does it seem worth the price now
In this cold light of day?

This moment changes everything
Nothing will ever be the same again
This night rearranges everything
No words to defend
And so it goes
And so it comes to an end

Fleeting moment in time

Lift your voices in unity
Glorify His name
Stand up tall in His might
Soldiers of the King

Evil will be bound

Warfare!
Warfare...the damage is done!
Warfare!
Warfare...the battle is won!
Warfare!
Warfare...by God's only Son!
No turning back

Set your hearts upon purity
Set aside the shame
Give your all in the fight
Hold on to the flame

If you fall or falter
Don't let it keep you down
The Lord is our strong tower
Take and stand your ground

Warfare!
Warfare...the damage is done!
Warfare!
Warfare...the battle is won!

Warfare...by God's only Son!
No turning back
No turning back
No turning back...

Track Name: Void of Skull - Mantra
[instrumental]
Track Name: Henry the Horse - Paranormal Melon-E.
Driving in the dark on a full moon night
Western Pennsylvania in the pre twilight
See a dark haired girl and I catch a fright
In the cold of the winter she’s a lonely sight

Reimer Road is lifeless like no mans land
A Woman in distress is waving her hands
This is something that I can’t comprehend
20 miles from nowhere with my drunk friend

Said she been walking for a very long time
And asked politely may I please have a ride
With out reason and with out rhyme
Paranormal Melanie climbed inside

Paranormal Melanie a mystery is calling me
Paranormal Melanie she came to me so eerily
Paranormal Melanie she needs a ride so desperately
Paranormal Melanie or damn is thee for passing she

As legend claims it is right where she died
For a little dead girl she seemed so alive
Like an eerie melody that moans and wines
A distant deja vu that transcends time

One Half of mile was the whole damn ride
By no Wheresville at the cold roadside
Apparition from a sad tragic end
Raped and freezing with out a friend

No one helped her when she was alive
So her spirit stayed on after she died
With out reason and with out rhyme
Paranormal Melanie climbed inside

Paranormal Melanie a mystery is calling me
Paranormal Melanie she came to me so eerily
Paranormal Melanie she needs a ride so desperately
Paranormal Melanie or damn is thee for passing she

(I see dead people)

Track Name: Place of Skulls - The Maker
Foundations of time from the first Earth age
You breathed life into each and every soul
Before the child conceived, the plan was secure
A life no law of man can claim or hold

We expose our pride in what we perceive as wise
And take the new life into our own hands
Without regard for the blessed new heartbeat
The machine we created cuts the silver strand

We won't be distracted by the same life we hold to
With our goals and desires we strive to achieve
In our self-proclaimed right for power over life
We now find more value in the trees

In the end our human will won't be done
Though thru time we deceive ourselves to believe
And the blood that we spilled, the dreams that we killed
In those fractured wombs we'll one day grieve

Lyrics by Victor Griffin

Track Name: Starchild - Rainbow
Dove ascend to ride the wind
And sail into unknown
Across the sea to olive tree
Oh my, how you have grown

Bless the day return to say
What we'd like to know
Is where you been the grass is green
And shines a new rainbow

Yeah..

The tide, the waves, the moon
A dove sings his tune
The wind, the world he's on
Finding life alone

Dove...
Dove...
Dove...
Dove...

Track Name: Buzzard - Get Gone
Well I’ve seen you before baby, on the side of the road
From the mountain you want a ride, where we goin’
Get in and let’s ride mama, just as far as we can
We’ve got nothing but sunny times, so let’s get gone

You better hang on tight honey, we’re getting hot for speed
Leavin’ all the dust behind, that’s all we need
Rockin’ space and time, until the sky turns black
We’ll leave it all behind mama, with the seats back

Now I know we’re so far behind we didn’t see it
Get up and get gone because they day’s too long, it’s time to split baby
Now I know we’re so far behind we didn’t see it
Get up and get gone because they day’s too long, it’s time to split baby

Well I’ve seen you before honey, on the side of the road
What mountain you want a ride, where we goin’
Get in and let’s go baby, just as far as we can
We’ve got nothing but sunny times, so let’s get gone

Now I know we’re so far behind we didn’t see it
Get up in and get gone because they day’s too long, it’s time to split baby

Let’s get gone

Track Name: Place of Skulls - Darkest Hour
I shaped my time the instant that I fled
And woman, I could never love you any less
But these many miles that I've roamed
Are weighing so heavy on my withered soul

I dream of the end when sleep comforts me
No sorrow or longing, nor burdens will I keep
I've ventured so long with these misguided hands
Burning my own trail to the Promised Land

If there's freedom out there
And I believe no price to pay
In my darkest hour
Truth's light will shine the way

[instrumental]
Track Name: My Silent Wake - The Empty Unknown
I need to redeem myself
Need to release my tortured mind
You know this wasn't my choice
The words are mine in another man's voice

Darkness came down upon me
Sickness tore right through me
Pressure, the depth of that misery
Felt just like suffocation

You can look anywhere for answers
I looked for too many answers in you
This fool thought it lasted forever
Trying so hard not to witness the truth

Lost to supplication
Forever beyond the pale
Tribulation, sorrow and pain
Burning deep within my veins

All we have is ourselves now and we are alone
All we hear is the silence, the empty unknown
We kept turning the key but this wasn't our home
Looking up at the skies when the follows had flown

This is not me
This is not my voice
You look at me with tears in your eyes
Believe me now
This was not my choice
Wait long enough and everything dies

Love lost and found
And lost and found
Moving forward then turned around
Feeling alive then feeling alone in this garden of thorns and neglect
Gaining our strength and losing ground

I need to redeem myself
Need to release my mind from this
I will live on in hope of something better than this
Until I breathe my dying breath

[unstrumental]

~~~

She has eaten voraciously again and again and yet still she is empty...her eyes dart wildly back and forth, desperately searching for some new fodder to consume in another vain attempt at satisfaction...in her terror, she pauses, looks down and sees something she had not yet considered until this very moment...the source being herself...without hesitation, she doubles over and begins to feed upon that which she once blindly accepted as her greatest strength and most valuable possession...as she tears into her own leathered flesh, she feels the familiar frenzy take over once more...one last sanguine ecstasy as she gorges herself on this final repast...undoing all as she hovers as close as she ever will to rest and relief...but, as always, this heightened state is short-lived as her diminishing vessel is no longer able to carry the curse of her existence...her withered host is reduced to waste while her wretched essence hangs in the putrid air for but a moment before dissipating into nothingness to be remembered nevermore...

~~~

The succubus is a female sexual spirit...a demon or supernatural entity which appears and takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce and feed upon the emotions, energy and resources of men (the male counterpart is the incubus). Some religious traditions hold that repeated contact and sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health and even death.
