Track Name: ExplodingPonyToast, LutariFan & ThatMusicBrony - Start Again
So we're here now
Looking at the sky
Watching sunrises bleed
And colours go by
Don't you think that
There's another way
To rise up to the sun
And take back the day

We'll find awakening my friend

We'll find salvation at the end
Of the world we'll start again

So we're here now
This will be our sky
We're catching sunsets to let
Our colours fly high
And I know that
It's not too late
To rise up from ground
And change our fate

We'll find awakening my friend

We'll find salvation at the end
Of the world we'll start again

We'll find salvation at the end
Of the world we'll start again
Track Name: Aurelleah & Kadenza - Firelight (feat. PegasYs)
Night falls over town
The witching hour crashes in and all the monsters walk about
The skies are filled with flutters
The streets are filled with mutters
The kings and queens of moonlight all step out

And I know where we're heading tonight
That small clearing lit by firelight
We'll act like animals until the break of dawn
And on and on we'll be singing

And I know that it'll all turn out alright
We look odd to the ones who make their reign in sunlight
But we pass them by without a worry or care
'Cause we know
There's a whole 'nother world out there

x2

And I know where we're heading tonight
That small clearing lit by firelight
We'll act like animals until the break of dawn
And on and on we'll be singing

x2
Track Name: Quicksilver - Breaking Point (feat. StealingShad3Z)
I think my promise is wearing thin
As all this pressure I feel within
Is coming to the surface
Til I turn pink in the face

There’s only so much that I can do
My friends all scare me and I can’t move
I'm breaking down
In no time I’ll fess up

I’m about to explode

My heart is pounding away
But I cannot give in
It’s hard to hold my tongue
But I will stay silent

I’m at my breaking point
So don’t get me started
I’m breathing at top speed
And silence is the hardest

So break me out of this contract i signed
I’m never gonna be alright til I
Get out of this mess
That I made
If this secret is the world to you
Why don’t you just keep it between you two
Cause I’m breaking down
And the stress is killing me

And this is pointless
How can I end this
I want out of this
My minds in distress

This town is insane
Or is it my brain
All of these secrets
Are getting to me

So let me go of the lies I’ve said
Let me tell the truth instead
I cant wait
any longer

I want out of these prison chains
To shout my secrets and ease my pains
Just say it now
So I can relax

My heart is pounding away
But I cannot give in
It’s hard to hold my tongue
But I will stay silent
I’m at my breaking point
So don’t get me started
I’m breathing at top speed
And silence is the hardest
Track Name: Foozogz & Sights Unseen - Out Of The Forest
Why is everyone afraid
The labels placed on me
Aren't who I am
You did this to me

(Look down at the earth) was this what she wanted?
(upon my face) was it for your own gain
(into my heart) are you feeling haunted?
(into my eyes) can you see my pain

I'm not just a monster, don't leave me alone
this village life is all that I've ever known
they can't seem to muster the courage to stay
and I sense that they fear for what might come their way

no I'm not just a monster, nor creature of the dark
wish I could be judged by the eyes of their hearts
don't run me out, please, we've done nothing wrong
the image, the demon, this curse is lifelong

now it's
out of the forest and into the night
there's no second chances, it's time to take flight
don't call my name, don't even wish me well, cause
I can't call this home if my home is in hell

yeah it's
out of the forest and into the night
I've realized now that this isn't my fight
my fate's with the damned, and that's alright with me
exiled, defiled, now I, I have been freed

I have been freed
Track Name: Selv3dge - Shout & Yell (feat. Rhyme Flow)
Life is tough, but in the past life was rougher
If you ask me in 10 years from now people suffer.

But from our current perspective, they would have it pretty good.
Like the people from the suburbs never troubled from the hood.

But the people in the suburbs got their own set of troubles.
Plus the wealthy and celebrities can definitely struggle

So does poorer make you more inclined to draw a greater sympathy
Or being a minority deserves the others empathy

Cause mentally we’re all ready to choose a certain side
Cause suffering’s a game we all play until we die

And the more points we can make is how much worse we claim to have it.
And that drowning in our sorrows is a standard form of habit

Give it up now.
We get it man you have it tough now.

But everybody has a struggle, everywhere’s a tough town.

And it’s a sliding scale from inconvenient to severe
And some places are more dangerous, where people live in fear.

Where there’s power, there’s corruption. Where there’s money, there is greed.
Where there’s lies, there lies prejudice and where the hatred breeds

And if you take it to the streets, you’ll notice violence succeeds
In only bringing more violence and ringing in deceased.

It’s disease and it’s seething through the people who got a short fuse.
And when you win the war on drugs you know that more lose.

And when you loan to college students you enslave them.
And they wonder why frustration plagues their brain - It’s cause we made them.

And that’s a statement when your presidential hopeful.
Only preys on fear and floats in loads of hatred by the boatful <no pause>

Ain’t no wall tall enough to block the ignorance and lazy
Of the people that are already here. I’m convinced they’re crazy.

So what you’re saying is “Flowny, this world is prone to go
If we don’t kill each other this Earth is ready to overflow”

“Intolerance and greed are competing for us to overthrow
This fantasy of ‘Reason & Peace’ that we had grown to know.” ?

No.

I’m tryna say open your eyes up.
Accept that we done screwed up and it’s time for us to rise up.

And wisen up, stop teaching kids to hug their feelings,
Cause not everyone’s a winner, and that sometimes there’s a ceiling.

But that ceiling can be broken by innovation and hard work.
And sometimes that ceiling is just some odd jerk.

Working under bullies and idiots that’s a part of life.
But learning how to fight through those challenges makes you smart in life.

Yeah

Don’t preach entitled, teach them finance.
We’re weakest when we’re idle, and our actions are what define us.

And there’s truth within the Sciences,
Not just on faith, but the mountains of research and studies that others paved

But don’t deny your spirit, the unknown outweighs the known.
And when we’re left with only thoughts our mind can find we’re not alone.

And most importantly, think for yourself. I can’t be clearer.
Using lyrics from my rap as a guide for life is drear.

I ain’t qualified to give you advice. I ain’t a doctor.
I’m just sittin here spittin out verses for ya’ll to rock to.

Maybe some of what i’m sayin resonates within you
Or maybe there’s a quote I wrote, you hate and just offends you

That’s the only thing I need from you all, just to continue
To keep on penning these last tracks that we’ve all been through.

If I can take you there, or my words evoke emotion
Or my subject matter causes dispute, that’s all I’m hoping.

And ain’t much left to say, my breath is running thin.
But if you made it through the most of this track, you made me grin.

Maybe you’re a writer or artist or someone who creates
What you bring into this world has a value beyond debate

And I’ll say it again, this life is tough, but so are you.
It’s complex and involved and you’ll fall more than you flew.

But this life is yours to make it as great as you can, or not at all.
Cause you’re the artist, and your life is the canvas upon the wall.
Track Name: Replacer - Some Dumb Ideas
It's just an ordinary pencil, I can
write it all down when I
come across whatever on my
travels down town, gonna
try to wake up early and I'm
gonna brush my hair then I'm
heading over west and I've no
doubt that you'll be there, let me
put you in my car and we'll
drive real slow and I'll
take you to a movie unless
you don't want to go I've got
two tickets to a
political rally cause I can
feel a change coming and we're
right on the beat oh yeah

don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
no no no

I've got some dumb ideas
and my very best clothes, someone
else's horoscope and some
directions on my phone and
whatever doesn't work I'll take and
put it somewhere else because the
only thing I have to fear is
melody itself and when I
put you in my house and we
jive real slow there's a
whole stack of papers sitting
on my gramophone I've got
two tickets to a
political rally I see the
message in the movement building
under my feet oh yeah

don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
don't you know
no no no
Track Name: Sonic Rainboom - Three Words (Needless To Say) [feat. PegasYs]
Verse 1:
I've got three words to say
Aloud, but, whenever you're
Around, I can't remember what to
Say.

You know I've always got your
Back, but, did you know that I'll
Always let you cut in
Line? That,

Chorus:
Where I'll go
Is always where you are?
I don't care how far
You could ever be from me.

And I know
That it's not explicit,
But it should be obvious.
What I mean by all of this, is

Needless to say.

Verse 2:
I have learned so much from
You, and, it's safe to say I
Need you, but I think you need me,
Too.

You can wall me off with
Sticks and stones and sacks of flour,
But, I keep coming back to
You.

And [Chorus]

ad lib.

And if you ever try to run from me,
I will chase you.
And if you ever lose your wings,
I will save you.

'Cause [Chorus x2]

Needless to say (x4)
Track Name: ThatMusicBrony - Rejected
All my life I've wanted to feel accepted
But at every turn I've always been rejected
So as the days pass by, without a thought or a care
I'll leave you in your happiness, while I'm lost in my despair
Track Name: Totalspark - Aurora Borealis VIP
Look to the sky and you will see
A million colors surround me
I'm searching far as I can stride
To bring you back into my life
Track Name: EnsionD - Bloom (feat. Francis Vace)
When did reason begin to fade,
Was the world ever sane,
Things used to be as they seemed,
Or was that just a dream?

The world I knew begins to blur,
When every thought begins with her,
I can’t remember what filled my mind,
I left it all behind.

Why did I ever hide?
My eyes have never been so wide.

The entire world in just one room,
Wood and resin and perfume,
Dusk and music fills the air,
Everything could disappear,
And I’d still be happy here,
Watching the sun set through her hair.
Track Name: 174UDSI - To A New World (feat. GloryOfTheRainWings)
Let's Go
To a new World
Everything is better
everything so sublime
Come with me
you'll feel alive
Freedom
Is what we need
Now is our Awakening

Now you can see
How it is now
So many Changes
Every Single day

Awakening~
Awakening
I know you feel it
You can't deny,
cause it feels so
Track Name: Starlight - Sincerity
Verse 1:
Day breaks
Heart Breaks
The morning after I left you
I don't regret the things I said
And you guys probably don't too

Sincerity is what we finally reached today
A friendship years in the making that we decided to piss away

One road diverged in three
Two followed closely while one broke free
Like a bird from a cage she flew away
Realized she was hungry for the seed she was given

Yesterday
I want to go back to yesterday
When our goals were the same
Every day was a game
And what was different hadn't gone away

Chorus:
I got tired of the pressure
You got tired of my broken record
I got tired of letting you let me down

And you probably remember
When we said we'd always be together
I guess we'll look back on that promise now

Verse 2:
Though it hasn't been very long
I can't remember who was right or wrong

Sincerity threw it all away
I guess for the best cause we said what we really wanted to say

I guess I could say that I was wrong
And I should because you knew it all along

Because in the end I still care
Our friendship is a warm summer that will always be there
Track Name: Dragonal & Rockin'Brony - Transgressions (feat. PrinceWhateverer)
She defies the working laws
To make me pay
Sends the world into eternal pause
With her own ways

It won't be long, until
She challenges the gods
This all cannot be real

HAS SHE LOST HER MIND!?

She finally crossed the line
I cannot waste, any time
If I let her get away
The entire world will fade to grey

I only have one chance
To make this right
If I let her get away
The world will come undone

I have seen realities
But not my own
Warped and twisted tragedies
Befall them all

Did she cause all of this
With her transgressions
I cannot believe

SHE WOULD GO THIS FAR!

She finally crossed the line
I cannot waste, any time
If I let her get away
The entire world will fade to grey

I only have one chance
To make this right
If I let her get away
The world will come undone

If you stop all of this
We can make it right
We can go back and
Fix EVERYTHING!
Track Name: SDreamExplorerS - The Swarm (feat. Metal Core Pony & Kitchen Warrior)
Verse 1

We are the evil, the purest of hate
There is no way you can deny your fate today
We are the blue-eyed death with smiles on a face
We're bringing darkness to your puny pony race

Nowhere to run, we're already here
We came to feed on your emotions, we can feel your fear
Nowhere to hide from us we will enslave the
Ponykind. And we will rule Equestria

Brigde 1

One day our suffering will end
(No it will not, no it will not)
We'll fight the swarm and we will free our promised land
(No you will not, no you will not)
We'll rise again for moon and sun
(And you will fall, and you will fall)
The revolution in our hearts has just begun

Chorus

Surrender all your hopes and dreams
Your world is not what it really seems
Enslavement, you have lost this war
The Sun will never shine again like it did before

Verse 2

We are the ocean, the ocean of pain
We are the desert and we are your cleansing rain
You heart will shriek from our hideous teeth
It's funny that you'll never know what lies beneath

Enough talking, let us feed and feed
Give us your love and joy, 'cause this is what we need
I hear the noises of her wings
Here comes our mother Chrysalis

Bridge 2

She is our master
She is our leader
Down on your knees
Hail to the queen

Chorus

Bridge 3

We are feeding on your thoughts and fears
Drinking every drop of bloody tears
Rotting in the cold and humid cells
Nightmares will become a living hell
Track Name: Francis Vace - Spell (feat. Itchigotchi)
This pile of books,
Is my only friend,
We’ve been to worlds far away,
But I know it’s just pretend.

This corner nook,
By the window sill,
Shows a world as clear as day,
A destiny I can’t fulfil.

If I had a spell,
That would work on you,
It would likely make all my dreams come true,
But, if I had a spell,
That would work on you,
I don’t think that I’d be able to follow through.

This pile of books,
Has been my ball and chain,
I’ve held by the weight of the words,
But I won’t make that mistake again.

This heavy door,
Under lock and key,
Has never been held shut,
By anyone other than me.
Track Name: Plum Creek Rhythm Section - Glimmer
You’ve got me
On the precipice with you
You have all the leverage now
All that’s keeping us from oblivion
Is a glimmer of hope
That you’ll hear me out

A cry for attention
I hear you
A grave apprehension
I feel you
Don’t really want
Don’t really want to do this
You really want
You really want a friend
Just one

I’ve got you second-guessing it
I can sense you hear my plea
All that’s keeping you from ending it all
Is a glimmer of hope
That you’ll listen to me

A cry for attention
I hear you
A grave apprehension
I feel you
Don’t really want
Don’t really want to do this
You really want
You really want a friend
Just one

(x4):
If you’re looking for a sign
Here it is:
Stay with us
Track Name: Silver Note - Tanks For The Memories
I will never forget, the day.
Don't let it be true, don't let it be true.
Why must we, let go, of those we love?
It's not, it's not fair.
Don't let it be true.

I know you're here,
Present in my dreams, in my thoughts, all around me,
I will never forget you.

I'm not ready to say goodbye (why must we),
So don't go (let go) where I can't go (of those we love),
I need you here (it's not, it's not fair).
I need you here (don't let it be true).
With me.

Please don't go.
Please don't go.
Track Name: Luna Ticks - Complication
Verse:

Insides on fire like they're
doused in gasoline

I've made made a mess of things
they never seem to be

Quite as simple as
your quiet explanation

Brought about
by yet another complication

I know you and
I know you well

Can't wait but
only time will tell

If I could get down
and get up
It’s finally time I ditched the cup

Parade through the streets
lined with broken glass and alcohol

Pre-chorus:
Don’t say
you’re sorry

Chorus:

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s really starting to get to me

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me

(Oh no, Oh no)
Can’t make me go so peacefully

(Oh no, Oh no)
I said some things I didn’t mean

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s really starting to mess with me

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me

Verse:

I don’t know
but I believe yeah

You’re not the same mare
from the peaceful town
that I met so long ago

on that fateful night
of that magic show
just floating through life
you had nowhere to go
you’ve got somewhere to go

I’ve gotta cut you off
because now you’re out of control

Try,
try,
try
and try again

Try as I might
I just can’t pretend

It doesn’t scare me
To see you like this

Sunken red eyes
mixed with cider and gin

Another night, Another fight
it happened again

Chorus (Reggae):

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s really starting to get to me

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me

(Oh no, Oh no)
Can’t make me go so peacefully

(Oh no, Oh no)
I said some things I didn’t mean

(Oh no, Oh no)
Cuz time be short and rapid

(Oh no, Oh no)
gotta make every single chant count

Your actions and broken promises
fill my aching heart with doubt
Pre-chorus:
Don’t say
you’re sorry

Chorus:

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s really starting to get to me

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me

(Oh no, Oh no)
Can’t make me go so peacefully

(Oh no, Oh no)
I said some things I didn’t mean

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s really starting to mess with me

(Oh no, Oh no)
It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me
Track Name: Tell Me More - Wanderlust
V1
I'm not afraid when I'm swimming with sharks
Or monsters or things that go bump in the dark
I will quite freely jump out of a plane
And when there is lightning, I'll dance in the rain
Its fearless and thoughtless and careless I guess
But when I take risks they turn out for the best

(Chorus)
And I'll fly so far
Lie on the beaches and whisper to stars
I can lose my mind
In tumbling cascades and the pebbles I find

And I'll travel all the lands
I'll write my story with trembling hands
Though my eyes may sting and blur
I cant get enough, I've got to see more of this world

V2
I'm not afraid to go roll in the snow
While wearing swimear and freezing my toes
Cliff edges dont scare me, or heights, bugs or slime
Or missing the moment, or running out of time
It's brave, but I crave when I'm saving myself
I'll flip from the bunk beds and climb on the shelves

(Chorus)

V3
I'm not afraid to go breaking the laws
'just don't hurt nobody' is what I've been taught
And I will quite happily go sing on the stage
Or sail on the waves while the seas full of rage
I can't be afraid of these physical things
I know I can heal from the grazes and stings

(Chorus)
