American Nightmare

(Joshua Lyons)

It's about rejecting the conformist attitude that accompanies living in America, whether in suburbia or a trailer park.

(Verse 1) Why are you so pale white In this sunlight? Why is it noon and You’re in a drunken stupor? Oh, how cute your Hair is dreaded like You do with your future (Chorus) I don’t want to end up in that trailer park home over there Drinking Mad Dog 20/20 at noon in my lawn chair Screaming that life isn’t fair If only somebody would care Or had a dime to spare Life would cease to be a nightmare (Verse 2) All the feelings that once got me high Still quench my thirst even when the well has run dry You’re past the point of trying I’m past the point of crying Only time will tell which one of us is lying (Chorus) I don’t want to end up homeless, like the guy who’s over there Talking about a mold infection he contracted somewhere Hindsight is 20/20 Man, I should’ve known She’s a Pollack painting Once her true color’s are shown (Bridge) I refuse to face life is just a race To a final destination and All our memories are just stories Made up of lies and misinformation Like what I hear from every girl I encounter XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XX XXXXX X XXXXX XX XX X XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXX X XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXX XX XX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX

Panic Button

By Diana Olosho

This is a song about guys who you and your friend thought you’ve figured out. However they end up being more than what we actually thought. For example I thought this guy was just a cute, nice and maybe a bit shy guy but he is actually the opposite, he is quite straightforward. Hence why I was left a bit shocked at 4 o’clock in the morning. So I texted my friend and she couldn’t believe it as well. Despite being in this situation I think it’s really funny so the lyrics are meant to be for a cheerful song.

There is You

By Katelyn Dodd

Relationships are not flawless, but it is important to appreciate those flaws among the kind-hearted actions that have drawn two souls together. 'There is You' acknowledges that things can be tough, while emphasizing highlights of behavior that allows the focus to be reinstated where it belongs, on unconditional love for another human.
