Barlow's Solo Awesome Recording
Release Date: 2010 Jul



Home (5th Track)
Look at you hiding behind your sweater What I want to say Let it fall away I don't care If we're alone, can be trusted on my own I can never bring you home Second guess I drift in all directions Once impressed, half undressed all day I'm not strong You don't believe I may be wrong That I can never bring you home If I do and don't resist you I'm too in love to really miss you In fact I'm frozen over joy Yes I did and yes I want to But nothing good can come to Someone pretending he is alone Yes I did and yes I want to But nothing good can come to Someone pretending he is alone Who can never bring you home 

CIRCUS DEVILS - ALL THE GOOD ONES ARE GONE



1-Track Album for I Razor Soundtrack]
Pollard & Tobias Lineup Released: 2013 Mar



All The Good Ones Are Gone
All the good ones are gone Listen to the grace life Bury all forgiveness Tell they're waiting Forget your shiny apple There's no teacher There's always someone following us We are all crazy Erasing every reason of the mind Chasing that's left behind Crossing all examinations still lecture on the will In victory they launch Not a bad one in the bunch All the good ones are gone In ways of song And some dramatic soundtrack Given up the process They are done Arriving now with no more cost to run Attempt a golden office Wait in haste People do nothing to fight And all shall be forgiven in the end

Second Studio Album
Date Released: 2012 Apr





Be Ready When I Say Go
Hold your box of matches tight Keep the firelighters bright Let it burn and let it feel alright Share our bruises in the glow Let the firefighters know We just want to sit and watch the show We just want the fire in our bones We got this one licked Be ready when I say go Buy me at night she said Worms are always underfed Daylight never seems to wait for me Share disguises in the dark Tell the tiger he’s a shark We don’t ever want to be apart We just killed the fear in our hearts We got this one licked Be ready when I say go Feed us something we can tolerate Give us something we can taste Give us time so we can hibernate Make the waiting worth the wait I told you we’d grow up to be the soldiers When everyone gets a little older It’s just a feeling that you want to never remember We got this one licked Be ready when I say go

Pretty Loser
Do you know the way? Do you know the turns and the side roads? The turns and the side roads that lead all the way to your heart People say you're pretty People say you're pretty much an angel An angel but dare I say you seem to believe it too much And all the neighbors think that you're something To some extent I tend to agree But if by chance you end up alone well I think I might take you in for free You're such a pretty loser That's why I want to make you mine A pretty pretty loser You're so a loser but I don't mind You want to steal the show You think you know it all and a lot more But girl, don't you think you've stretched your drama too far I can tell you all your dirty secrets See through all your lies People scare me, people warn me People ask me ask me why Yaddah yaddah yaddah yaddah yaddah Blah blah blah Yaddah yaddah yaddah yaddah yaddah Blah blah blah Can't you see it's such a complicated task? To dissect and study the anatomy of what you ask of me You're such a pretty loser That's why I want to make you mine A pretty pretty loser You're such a loser but I don't mind 'Cause you're such a pretty baby And I just thought that maybe Maybe I could make you mine My pretty loser My own pretty loser

Stone
I know you think I'm wrong but im not your tour guide Have a guess i don't let you look inside Cold dry stone What makes you want to carve your initials in me Rained and weathered erasing hard to read Find me distant outwardly rough obscene Cold dry stone Cold and dry, a stone Cold and dry, a stone I'm not a cornerstone in a palace for you Time will bring your very own hard truth Not to worry ice covered rocks still move Cold dry stone Cold dry stone

THIS IS NEW ALTERNATIVE - ( THE SOUNDTRIPPER II - VOLUME ONE )

This here is new alternative.   You can call them what you want.  Call it Grunge, Indie Rock, or Modern Rock but it's easier to call it Alternative.  Remember when you get confused what to call the genre?,  It's better to call it the alternative meaning it's the other thing you want to call it.

These songs are fresh, which means they were released not long ago.  The best I could come up  without revisiting the other old alternative songs.  And they pretty much convey the same mood. Some bands were here for a long time now, but a number of them are really quite new.

Tracks:
01. The Journey - Big Country
02. Be Ready When I Say Go - Emperors
03. Let's All Kill Each Other - Soul Asylum
04. Be Careful What You Ask For - Everclear
05. I Don't Believe You - The Thermals
06. Speed of Love - James Iha
07. Kind of A Girl - Tinted Windows
08. Sugar - Shout Out Louds
09. I've Got a Wild Feeling - Milk Music
10. A Dip In The Ocean - Fountains of Wayne
11. Where We Come From - French Films
12. Favourite Colour - Tokyo Police Club
13. Change It All - The Breaking Waves
14. See and Be Scene - The Hard Lessons
