Joint Base Andrews, the home of Air Force One, was the scene of a bomb threat Friday that was ultimately determined to be a hoax, a military spokesman said afterward.

A motorist approached the main gate of the installation at roughly 4:45pm and told security personnel he had a bomb in his vehicle, said a spokesperson for the 316th Wing of U.S. Force based there.

“After the individual was taken into custody, bomb sniffing military working dogs did an initial sweep of the vehicle and did not find anything relevant,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

The automobile was also examined by a specialized robot and a member of the Air Force‘s Explosive Ordnance Disposal team before it was determined there was no bomb, the official added.

“We take every threat seriously,” Col. Tyler Schaff, commander of both the base and the 316th Wing, said in a statement. “Our team took every precaution to keep our airmen and their families safe.

The motorist was taken into custody and questioned by base security forces as well as partner law enforcement agencies, according to a statement issued by the installation Friday.

Access to the base via its main gate was briefly suspended prior to security personnel determining the area was safe, the statement said.

Officials had not released the name of the motorist as of Saturday but described the suspect as “a civilian with no military affiliation.”

Joint Base Andrews, a joint Air Force and Navy installation, is located in Camp Springs, Maryland, in Prince George’s County, roughly a dozen miles southeast of the White House in Washington.

For nearly 60 years, Andrew has been the home base for the fleet of jets that serve under the call sign Air Force One when the president is aboard. President Biden was not scheduled to travel out of town Friday.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — An Israeli airstrike destroyed a high-rise building in Gaza City that housed offices of The Associated Press and other media outlets on Saturday, the latest step by the military to silence reporting from the territory amid its battle with the militant group Hamas

The strike came nearly an hour after the military ordered people to evacuate the building, which also housed Al-Jazeera, other offices and residential apartments. The strike brought the entire 12-story building down, collapsing with a gigantic cloud of dust. There was no immediate explanation for why it was attacked.

The strike came hours after another Israeli air raid on a densely populated refugee camp in Gaza City killed at least 10 Palestinians from an extended family, mostly children, in the deadliest single strike of the current conflict. Both sides pressed for an advantage as cease-fire efforts gathered strength.

The latest outburst of violence began in Jerusalem and has spread across the region, with Jewish-Arab clashes and rioting in mixed cities of Israel. There were also widespread Palestinian protests Friday in the occupied West Bank, where Israeli forces shot and killed 11 people.

The spiraling violence has raised fears of a new Palestinian “intifada,” or uprising at a time when there have been no peace talks in years. Palestinians on Saturday were marking Nakba (Catastrophe) Day, when they commemorate the estimated 700,000 people who were expelled from or fled their homes in what was now Israel during the 1948 war surrounding its creation. That raised the possibility of even more unrest.

U.S. diplomat Hady Amr arrived Friday as part of Washington’s efforts to de-escalate the conflict, and the U.N. Security Council was set to meet Sunday. But Israel turned down an Egyptian proposal for a one-year truce that Hamas rulers had accepted, an Egyptian official said Friday on condition of anonymity to discuss the negotiations.

Since Monday night, Hamas has fired hundreds of rockets into Israel, which has pounded the Gaza Strip with strikes. In Gaza, at least 139 people have been killed, including 39 children and 22 women; in Israel, eight people have been killed, including the death Saturday of a man killed by a rocket that hit in Ramat Gan, a suburb of Tel Aviv

The strike on the building housing media offices came in the afternoon, after the building’s owner received a call from the Israeli military warning that it would be hit. AP’s staff and others in the building evacuated immediately. 

Al-Jazeera, the news network funded by Qatar’s government, broadcast the airstrikes live as the building collapsed.

“This channel will not be silence. Al-Jazeera will not be silenced,” an on-air anchorwoman said, her voice thick with emotion. “We can guarantee you that right now.”

Earlier Saturday, an airstrike hit a three-story house in Gaza City’s Shati refugee camp, killing eight children and two women from an extended family.

Mohammed Hadidi told reporters his wife and five children had gone to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday with relatives. She and three of the children, aged 6 to 14, were killed, while an 11-year-old is missing. Only his 5-month-old son Omar is known to have survived. 

Children’s toys and a Monopoly board game could be seen among the rubble, as well as plates of uneaten food from the holiday gathering.

“There was no warning,” said Jamal Al-Naji, a neighbor living in the same building. “You filmed people eating and then you bombed them?” he said, addressing Israel. “Why are you confronting us? Go and confront the strong people!”

The Israeli military did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Hamas said it fired a salvo of rockets at southern Israel in response to the airstrike.

A furious Israeli barrage early Friday killed a family of six in their house and sent thousands fleeing to U.N.-run shelters. The military said the operation involved 160 warplanes dropping some 80 tons of explosives over the course of 40 minutes and succeeded in destroying a vast tunnel network used by Hamas.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said the military aims to minimize collateral damage in striking military targets. But measures it takes in other strikes, such as warning shots to get civilians to leave, were not “feasible this time.”

Israeli media said the military believed dozens of militants were killed inside the tunnels. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad militant groups have confirmed 20 deaths in their ranks, but the military said the real number is far higher.

Gaza‘s infrastructure, already in widespread disrepair because of an Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed after Hamas seized power in 2007, showed signs of breaking down further, compounding residents’ misery. The territory’s sole power plant is at risk of running out of fuel in the coming days.

The U.N. said Gazans are already enduring daily power cuts of 8-12 hours and at least 230,000 have limited access to tap water. The impoverished and densely populated territory is home to 2 million Palestinians, most of them the descendants of refugees from what is now Israel.

The conflict has reverberated widely. Israeli cities with mixed Arab and Jewish populations have seen nightly violence, with mobs from each community fighting in the streets and trashing each other’s property. 

Late on Friday, someone threw a firebomb at an Arab family’s home in the Ajami neighborhood of Tel Aviv, striking two children. A 12-year-old boy was in moderate condition with burns on his upper body and a 10-year-old girl was treated for a head injury, according to the Magen David Adom rescue service. 

In the occupied West Bank, on the outskirts of Ramallah, Nablus and other towns and cities, hundreds of Palestinians protested the Gaza campaign and Israeli actions in Jerusalem. Waving Palestinian flags, they trucked in tires that they set up in burning barricades and hurled stones at Israeli soldiers. At least 10 protesters were shot and killed by soldiers. An 11th Palestinian was killed when he tried to stab a soldier at a military position.

In east Jerusalem, online video showed young Jewish nationalists firing pistols as they traded volleys of stones with Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah, which became a flashpoint for tensions over attempts by settlers to forcibly evict a number of Palestinian families from their homes.

On Israel‘s northern border, troops opened fire when a group of Lebanese and Palestinian protesters on the other side cut through the border fence and briefly crossed. One Lebanese was killed. Three rockets were fired toward Israel from neighboring Syria without causing any casualties or damage. It was not immediately known who fired them.

The tensions began in east Jerusalem earlier this month, with Palestinian protests against the Sheikh Jarrah evictions and Israeli police measures at Al-Aqsa Mosque, a frequent flashpoint located on a mount in the Old City revered by Muslims and Jews.

Hamas fired rockets toward Jerusalem late Monday, in an apparent attempt to present itself as the champion of the protesters.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed that Hamas will “pay a very heavy price” for its rocket attacks as Israel has massed troops at the frontier. U.S. President Joe Biden has expressed support for Israel while saying he hopes to bring the violence under control.

Hamas has fired some 2,000 rockets toward Israel since Monday, according to the Israeli military. Most have been intercepted by anti-missile defenses, but they have brought life to a standstill in southern Israeli cities, caused disruptions at airports and have set off air raid sirens in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

People gather and celebrate as bars, clubs and other establishments reopened in Poland after being closed for seven months, in Warsaw, Poland, Friday, May 14, 2021. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski) more >

Saturday, May 15, 2021

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poles pulled off their masks, hugged their friends and made toasts to their regained freedom as restaurants, bars and pubs reopened for the first time in seven months and the government dropped a requirement for people to cover their faces outdoors.

The reopening, for now limited now to the outdoor consumption of food and drinks, officially took place on Saturday. Yet many could not wait for midnight to strike and were out on the streets of Warsaw and other cities hours earlier on Friday evening to celebrate, gathering outside popular watering holes. Some brought their own beer to hold them over until they could buy drinks at midnight — though some bars were also seen serving up beers and cocktails early.

“Now they are opening and I feel so awesome. You know, you feel like your freedom is back,” said Gabriel Nikilovski, a 38-year-old from Sweden who was having beer at an outdoor table at the Pavilions, a popular courtyard filled with pubs in central Warsaw. “It’s like you’ve been in prison, but you’ve been in prison at home.”

DJs were finally back at work and waiters and waitresses were rushing to fill orders once again. Meanwhile, the end of a requirement to wear masks outdoors added to the sense of liberation. Masks will still be required in settings like public transport and stores.

Bar owners were also happy, thanks to the prospect of being able to finally start earning money, and many said they had been bombarded with reservation requests leading up to the opening.

“Today we feel as if it was New Year’s Eve because we are counting down to midnight,” said Kasia Szczepanska, co-owner of a bar, CAVA, on Warsaw’s trendy Nowy Swiat street. “It’s like New Year’s in May.”

Pandemic restrictions have meant that restaurants, cafes and other establishments have been limited to offering only takeout food and drinks since last fall.

“Everyone says they’re fed up with takeout food, food served on plastic,” Szczepanska said.

The easing of the country’s lockdown is coming in stages but the reopening of bars with outdoor gardens or dining areas was clearly a key psychological step on the road back to normality. From May 29, indoor dining will again be allowed.

Not all businesses survived the long months of forced closure, however, even with some government assistance, and others will be working at first simply to recoup their losses.

The loosening of restrictions comes as vaccinations have finally picked up speed across the European Union, of which Poland is a member, and the numbers of new COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations have plunged in Poland in recent weeks.

Yet many people don’t feel like they can fully relax yet.

Aleksandra Konopka, who manages a bar along a popular promenade on the Vistula River where people were lounging in deck chairs and sipping drinks in the sandy garden with a beach-like vibe, said she was thrilled that things were coming back. But she is also nervous there could be more lockdowns as new virus variants circulate. And she said there are new challenges coming from the difficulty of finding workers.

“Not everyone is willing to work in the gastronomy or hotel industry because they expect that they will lose their job,” Konopka said. “They changed professions and it’s hard to get service.”

One of the customers lounging at her bar, Monika Rzezutka, said she had badly missed contact with people during the many months of lockdown and welcomed the resumption of normal life.

“What used to be the norm suddenly becomes something unbelievable,” said Rzezutka, a 23-year-old psychology student. “It’s a nice feeling.”

Waste Of Aces – Wicked Backslider Lyrics

Oh backslider so misunderstood
You were trying to be good but you’re just a backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder, ooh backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder

Oh backslider they say you went astray
Now hell is where you’ll pay you wicked backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder, ooh backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder

And now you know what they don’t know
That good and evil grow in a garden
And you’ve received a pardon

Oh backslider doing what you could

To stay up on that wood
But you’re just a backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder, ooh backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder

Oh backslider, house upon the sand
As God removed his hand from the wicked backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder, ooh backslider
Sneaky-sidewinder

And now you know what they don’t know
That good and evil grow in a garden
And you’ve received a pardon…

Barbara Mason – I Believe And Have Not Seen Lyrics

I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe

I believe
And I have not seen those piercing eyes
That can look so deep

I know that Christ died for me
Just so my soul could be free
He's got a kind ear
He's the only one who's always there

I believe
When I have not seen those hands
That were nailed to that cross

I believe
That He loves and He loves me
Cause He said He'd love me more

Than any man ever could

I believe He took that journey to Calvary
Just so all mankind could be free
He's coming again on a white cloud
And all of His angels will call out His name out loud
I believe
And I have not seen those crown of thorns
That were around His head

I believe that He loves me
I believe
I believe
I believe
I believe in the Lord

Cage The Elephant – Night Running Lyrics

We’re on a night run
Boy you better hold your tongue
Talking like you coming from kingdom come
Rhythm and reeling
The feeling I’m riding
The sound to the ceiling
Never got no money
But I’m running from the gun
My engines flooded
Cold blooded no money
Drunk on something uh
Killing the moonlight
With daylight
Got my x-ray eyes
And I’m feeling so fine

Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
We’re running all night running
Cold blooded all night running
Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
Night running all night running
Cold blooded we’re all night running

We’re on the night shade
Tell me what we’re hiding from
Like someone could steal it
Are we waiting for some kind of feeling
Or saving it up for the morning?
Under cover
The cloak and dagger
Is there a creature in the attic
Are we for real yeah
Or just pretending
Will it burn it out by the morning

Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
We’re running all night running
Cold blooded all night running
Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
Night running all night running
Cold blooded we’re all night running

We’re on a night run
No telling who we’re running from
In a world of secrets and demons and people hiding from the sun
Sending my message to everyone losing control
Better not stop till I get home
Sentimental flowers don’t grow
Got to live through tidal waves
And parishes and biblical floods
I got the Gris Gris love
And the streets in my blood
I’m on the final run
Falling in and out of love

Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
We’re running all night running
Cold blooded all night running
Night running all night running
Star studded not far from it
Night running all night running
Cold blooded we’re all night running

Joyryde – DAMN Lyrics (feat. Freddie Gibbs)

[Sample: Freddie Gibbs]
When I hit you up I'm talking about bangin' something
Chill off in your crib and have a thing, probably make it stank or something
Girl you like my bottom bitch, post my bail, pay for my lawyer
Play your position when them other hoes get out of order
When you wanna give me that p*ssy? You purchase a plane ticket
Run around town, when I bust her down they want shit like them lames did it
Got her dick whipped, my dick smeared with lipstick
Basically if this bitch lay with me she payin' me, I'm on some pimp shit

For real! It's 2 A.M. club was bout' to close up
Thumbing through my contacts bout' to call one of my hoes up
Then I met you, kicked game and followed you to the breakfast spot
f*cked you like I married you that night up in the Marriott
Scream like you got your cherry popped
f*cking, switching up positions
Thought this shit would never stop
Motherf*ck an intermission
Damn!

Darlingside – Crystal Caving Lyrics

Dial a light for a natural fade
Seasons can change
Menus scroll and the needs are met
All I’ve got left

Feed a family and we’re all grown up, yet we’re all still
Here nothing growing, crystal caving in the atmosphere
Everything’s golden

Natural and the disasters
And everything after
On the hour, every hour, yes
At your convenience

One of many, and the many make the garden grow
Here nothing growing, but the trees erupt in black light and gold
Evеrything’s golden

Sean Paul Gives Tutorial For The #TemperatureChallenge On TikTok

Sean Paul kicks off his #TemperatureChallenge on TikTok as his classic hit went viral.

It’s quite understandable why TikTok challenges have grown in popularity since the arrival of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Social distancing coupled with tight curfews has seemingly resulted in a resurfacing of just about everything, from old songs to dance moves.

It was pretty hard to escape the magic of Sean Paul during the early 2000s. The Jamaica rude boy dominated Billboard charts, infiltrated the Grammys, and stole hearts whenever and wherever his music was played. Undoubtedly, one of his biggest tracks was “Temperature,” which was released in 2005. Fans from all over the world have since rallied to create a brand new #TemperatureChallenge, and Dutty Paul has finally chimed in to show how it’s done, sort of.

“Mek me show u how 2 do dis,” SP captioned a recent post shared on TikTok and Instagram. His hilarious video includes two female dancers who aren’t afraid to buss a move regardless of their surroundings. Sean Paul is somehow always there to check out what is happening, that’s until he gets into the groove towards the end of the video.

The comment section flooded with fire emojis as fans welcomed his version of the challenge to his classic dancehall tune.

A post shared by SEAN PAUL (@duttypaul)

The “Temperature challenge” has been around for some time, but there is no set dance to make it an official challenge. The public is speculating that the challenge will, of course, be taken up by fans who will imitate the moves shown in Sean Paul’s version.

“Temperature” reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and was Sean Paul’s third number one hit single. The song made the top 10 in Canada and France and the top 20 in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number 11. It also debuted at number 19 in Australia and rapidly moved to number five in the following weeks. The single, which became Sean Paul’s biggest hit single in the U.S, spent 17 weeks in the top 10.

Nicki Minaj Addresses Alleged Cocaine Use On IG Live

Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to address rumors that she has been using drugs.

The Trinidadian rapper went Live on Instagram Thursday, May 13, to promote her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape, which dropped moments after she ended the Live session. Her Barbz showered their queen with love, and she reciprocated with promises of new material, among other things. Nicki Minaj was full of life and optimism as she spoke about what is to come. It turns out that was not the only observation made by fans. Some Instagram users speculated that the rapper was sniffing consistently throughout her Live and concluded that she was on drugs.

The “Anaconda” rapper went Live again earlier today (May 14) to deny the rumors, reiterating that she has never used coke.

“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I wouldn’t be embarrassed about any f**king drugs I did, that’s why I talk about the motherf**kin drugs I do in my motherf**king music. Always have, always f**king will,” She said.

“If I’m off em, I’m off em child, but I want to make this clear so open everybody’s ears, clear your ears out. I have never, ever in my life with my hands on Jesus Christ, and y’all know how I feel about my Lord and savior. Never in my life, ever, not even once sniffed coke. Ever,” She clarified.

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom)

The “Moment 4 Life” rapper went on to explain that she was sniffing throughout her Live because of her allergies. She adds that her natural body temperature is lower than the average person, according to her doctor, and this causes her to feel colder than everyone else. In addition, she says she also gets sick very easily, which is why she has always refrained from using drugs like that. She explained that she actually doesn’t judge persons who snort cocaine.

“I have a lot of friends, or acquaintances in the industry who do coke. I don’t judge them for it but I’ve never tried it, never wanted to, never asked them to,” She declared.

The rapper added, “Especially in the fashion world, that’s so common and normal, but yes… That’s the thing, when people used to lie about me I never used to clear my name and there was someone who took a major step and told that lie to people and I never addressed it because I thought it was too ridiculous at the time to address but something just told me to now.”

Chavez – Break Up Your Band Lyrics

I made it up to the fool the wax-faced lap dogs
Who set the traps and when you’re weak they finally paid you
Crave rapid hands
With pride and finesse
And you could finger through the piles
Let all the drummers come to meet the champions
Break up your band
And blast with the cold next to joy
And blast with the cold next to joy

Make it stop so you can
I’ll make all arrangements
It has been approved
Clip your dreams and push shit through
If you could finger through the piles
Let all the drummers come to meet the champions
Break up your band
Stale sexless loud and vague
So stop while you can

Delta Sleep – Single File Lyrics

Wake up to a world overcast in concrete skies
Where the smell of exhaust is a factor in people’s daily lives
You elevate to earn yourself the status
Then walk home alone at the end of the day in single file

Hard to come to terms with how they do it
When the streets are lined with houses you can’t live in

Meagre sleep to spend time in tall buildings
In front of scrolling numbers on computer screens
All her friends stay logged into the system
In fear of what would go down if they tried to hide

Hard to come to terms with how they do it
When the air is formed of things that you can’t breathe in
Scan the streets in search of something better

I’ve been here since I can remember

Hard to come to terms with all the consequence at stake to stay there. She’d lie awake for hours dreaming up a better place, where maybe…

Hard to come to terms with all the effort that it takes, to stay here
She’d lie awake for hours thinking of another way

My Lady, you’re gone. It’s done

My mind is racing but I can’t feel my head
This world an island, isolated conscience buried in the sand. Sleeping

The blurry memories they come as they go, so hard to focus when The City watches everything you do and stops you from dreaming
I’m leaving
Soon

Waste Of Aces – Money, Power, And Fame Lyrics

Daddy was rich, granddaddy too
My money may be old but it’s new to you
I’ve got riches from my head to my toes
I’ll put rings on your fingers and powder on your nose

I’ve got money, power, and fame
And every girl I know likes to play that game
The game called money, power, and fame

I am known on seven continents
I have the ear of kings and presidents
Life without me just wouldn’t be the same
Come on baby don’t you want to be a household name?

I’ve got money, power, and fame
And every girl I know likes to play that game
The game called money, power and fame

Some people may say
I’ve got an arrogant side

But I just tell them
To “step off and slide”
After all it’s so hard to walk in humility
When all your walking is done in the person of me

I’ve got money, power, and fame
And every girl I know likes to play that game
The game called money, power and fame

I snap my fingers
And men are by my side
I get the best table in the joint
They keep my car parked just outside
Now darling don’t take this as a slam
But living life without me just ain’t worth a damn

I’ve got money, power, and fame
And every girl I know likes to play that game
The game called money
The game called power
The game called fame

Cage The Elephant – Tokyo Smoke Lyrics

Hey man
Hand me down down with the crooked back
What’s your father’s name? Boy, you don’t know where you’re at
Pick yourself up, you don’t look so good
Maybe you should lay down
Taught me how to fall
But you never told me I was supposed to stay down

Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Keep it tight
Stay between the lines
Make your mark
Take your own advice
Don’t be surprised when you trip and stumble
I played the fool again
My old unfaithful friend
Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Don’t be surprised if you can’t stay between the lines

Quicksand color blind in the hourglass
All spun out ’cause you can’t stop looking back
Better stay still, don’t you make a move
What’d you hope to find here?
Taught me how to fall
But you never told me I was meant to die here

Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Keep it tight
Stay between the lines
Make your mark
Take your own advice
Don’t be surprised when you trip and stumble
I played the fool again
My old unfaithful friend
Stick and move
Sharpen up the knife
Don’t be surprised if you can’t stay between the lines

Endless shot rounds
No smoking guns
Fizzled and faded
Now back on the run
My sticks and stones
Tokyo smoke
I played the fool ’til I started to choke
My public smile
My double face
Half in the light
Half in the shade
Need some fresh air
No place tonight
Guess I’ll stay in and continue to fight
Lost, trace of trail
Spiderweb spun
Pale white and blue
Now I’m coming undone
Play sticks and stones
Three shades of black
Two steps away
And I can’t get back

Darlingside – Time Will Be Lyrics

Time will be the life of me
And time will be the death of me
In my loose head, my state July
My mind a room of ruby light
I find you there in the empty road
That flickers by the almond grove

Time will be the life of me
And time will be the death of me

We mountain through the mountains to the point of return
The ridges rose and rose for who knows how long
And on and on with you beyond and there’s no return

I lost it thеre, I ran aground
And I between the windows down
Was a whistling bottlе in the wind
In my seat I hyperventilated
Nothing goes only to heaven or hell
Or ever did, or ever will

Time will be the life of me
And time will be the death of me

We mountained through the mountains to the point of return
The ridges rose and rose for who knows how long
And on and on with you beyond and there’s no return

Garth Brooks – The Fever Lyrics

(Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Bryan Kennedy, Dan Roberts)
He’s got a split finger wrap
And his rope’s pulled way to tight
He’s got a lunatic smile
‘Cause he’s really drawn deep tonight
He’s got a fever, fever, fever, fever
Grab a hold of anything and hold on tight
It hits you like the venom from a rattle snake bite
We’re all here ’cause he’s not all there tonight
He takes one breath
And time turns inside out
Then the gate busts open to the world he dreams about
He’s got a fever, fever, fever, fever
Stick a rope on anything ’cause he don’t care
He’d even take a ride on the electric chair
We’re all here cause he’s not all there tonight
He says it’s really kind of simple
Keep your mind in the middle

While your butt spins ’round and ’round
Take heed to Sankey’s preachin’
Keep liftin’ and reachin’
And ridin’ like there ain’t no clowns
What he loves might kill him
But he’s got no choice
He’s a different breed
With a voice down deep inside
That’s screamin’ he was born to ride
He’s got a fever, fever, fever, fever
Fever makes you crazy ’cause it makes no sense
Like runnin’ from your shadow out of self-defense
He won’t run and baby he can’t hide
He thinks the odds are even leavin’ one hand tied
He gets so tired of hangin’ on so tight
I know you think he’s crazy well I think you’re right
We’re all here ’cause he’s not all there that’s right

Chavez – Laugh Track Lyrics

Remain until the break stops
Put on your guided lasers
Pretend that we’re impatient
Draw it all up and get it no way

We’re waiting in the basement
Rolling all our hopes in little balls
?
He’s shooting bolts and get it no way
Rolling up hopes and get it no way
Friends have all left you get it no way

Soon the laugh track
Engage us and let us feel its cool

Soon the laugh track
(Lay to?) waste what the rented gods have wrought
Take your teeth back
We aren’t worth….can never chase
Now I’m headed for the plan of (God?)

Hand your tags and get it no way
Friends have all left you get it no way
Slaves to the jock girls get it no way
Put on your guided lasers

Delta Sleep – Lake Sprinkle Sprankle Lyrics

[Intro]
Oh my, I did not recognise those eyes in that dress you wore
Your thighs are stuck in my mind, I'd like to carry them home

Release, this urge needs feeding

[Verse 1]
Now that's done, was it worth the fun?
Tell me, could I be the one for you?
I don't think I thought this through…
So, see you around

I never meant for this, you know I’m damaged goods

[Verse 2]
Lately I've listed the reasons why I can't move on
And why I sleep in the house that we lived in for over three years now
Staring at paintings, recounting the places we'd been together
I try to escape but I can't seem shake all these pictures (of us)

[Verse 3]
The light up on the desk still burning bright
The way I'm dressed suggests I left it on all night
I've probably done the same the night or three before

Another crowded thought for clouded minds
Of broken promises I'd made a million times
On how to let go, breathe, and do more exercise
[Bridge]
It's getting colder as the days merge into one
I best just lay my head and pray for morning sun

[Verse 4]
So from this moment on he started drifting
And dreamed of colours that he'd never seen before
And all the types of fruit he'd ever tasted
The air was warm, the sky was clear of water
Beyond the lake were trees far as the eye could see
This was the place we used to swim together

[Bridge]
Those things up on your chest look mighty comfy
I best just lay my head and wait for morning sunbeams

[Outro]
Morning
The wait is over
So in we go
To find a home

Cage The Elephant – What I’m Becoming Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Slowly drift across the floor, can't escape from my mind
Yet I feel like moving on, but I’m stuck taking my time
A window, a sparrow, a spare room, a shadow
Tied to the place where I told you

[Chorus]
I'm so sorry, honey, for what I'm becoming
Everything you wanted seems so far from me
Never meant to hurt you, no, never meant to make you cry
I’m so sorry, honey, for what I'm becoming

[Verse 2]
Caught me walkin' through the walls, still there's nothing I find
Took the picture from the frame, am I wasting my time?
A stranger, the basement, a table, the pavement

Tied to the place where I left you

[Chorus]
I'm so sorry, honey, for what I'm becoming
Everything you wanted seems so far from me
Never meant to hurt you, no, never meant to make you cry
I'm so sorry, honey, for what I'm becoming

[Bridge]
Never meant to hurt you, no
Never meant to make you cry
Never meant to hurt you, no
Never meant to hurt you
[Chorus]
I’m so sorry, honey, for what I’m becoming
Everything you wanted seems so far from me
Never meant to hurt you, no, never meant to make you cry
I'm so sorry, honey, for what I’m becoming

Darlingside – Keep Coming Home Lyrics

I got lost on endless land
On endless land I’m lost again
Keep coming home

I remember seeing you
The flat end of a bottle through
Keep coming home

Comb the stairs, make us a drink
The sun is set and in the sink
I keep coming home

Every little thing and large
Is off its track and banking hard
Fever trees against the headlights
Starlings spiral out of sight
I keep coming home

I get caught in my own web
And love you to the gills again

[Verse 1]
Woke up this morning with your touch on my mind
Your kisses take me on some heavenly ride
Go with me, go with you, no limit no
I don't regret nothing, with you I belong

[Pre-Chorus]
Do what you want to do

Babyland – Burning Up Lyrics

Don’t put me off
Cause I’m on fire
And I can’t quench my desire
Don’t you know that
I’m burning up for your love
You’re not convinced
That that is enough
I put myself in this position
And I deserve the imposition
But you don’t even know I’m alive
And there’s pounding in my crotch
I just might die
I’m burning up

You’re always closing the door
Well it only makes me want you more
And day and night I cry for your love

You’re not conviced that that is enough
To justify my wanting you
Well tell what you want me to do
I’m not blind and I know
You want to f*ck me
But you still say no

Do you want to see me down on
Down on my knees
Or bending over backwards
Now would you be pleased
Unlike the other I’ll do anything
I’m not the same
I have no shame
I feel no pain
And you’re to blame

Delta Sleep – Dream Thang Lyrics

If I stop running to the outer edge of town
They will find me and make me forget
That when I wake up, two months down the line
I would set out to do it all again
Though I know I might not reach the end

Don’t know nothing of where these sewers lead

I’m just guessing it’s to a brighter place
Where time moves slower and work is off the clock
Where thoughts are happier and never under watch
And I know I might not reach the end
But if I try now something’s bound to break

Waste Of Aces – Joe Lyrics

Hey Joe don’t be sad
Hey Joe don’t be mad at me
I didn’t want to go
Hurts more than you’ll ever know
So don’t be mad at me

Hey Joe come outside and play
Hey Joe it’s such a sunny day
It’ll soon be time to go

Hurts more than you’ll ever know
So don’t be mad at me

Hey Joe it’s time to say goodbye
Hey Joe I wish you wouldn’t cry
I do not want to go
Hurts more than you’ll ever know
So don’t be mad at me

Darlingside – Rodeo Lyrics

This is my first rodeo
I'm holding on tight to the rope
Don't know which way this will go

An aisle at the convenience store
Shoelace gray lottery floor
It feels like I've been here before
The clerk is a man behind glass
Behind his eyes is the past
Behind him the local news broadcast

There are only two ways you can go
Away from or back to your home
So I picture a gigantic road
Where everyone walks to the sun oh

This is my first rodeo
I'm holding on tight to the rope
Don't know which way this will go

Hoping on breakfast downstairs
My mom and my brother are there
Cinnamon toast in the air
The dogs are out back in the snow
TV, the clock radio
Everything talks in its home
As the months are zoomed too far in

These pages are pages I've read
And the places are places I've been
Oh

And today is the same as the rest
But sure it's shaped nonetheless
So I stand up and drop off my plate
Push out the door to the front gate

An aisle on a bus out of town
I feel my feet moving me down
The bus lifting up off the ground
Then the thoughts come and go for awhile
The parking lot fades into sight
The path to the beach in the streetlight

The door pulls the bus driver's hand
The curb pushes up to the sand
I step into an alien land
Oh

Where the sand brush and snow dunes descend
And ice water ocean begins
And I think I can see to the end
The winging the light in the wind

Babyland – Don’t You Feel Lost Lyrics

Everything seemed OK
But growing older things started to change
Friends and ideals fade away
Deviation from hope and ambition
As they start the adult transition
Never achieved
So now they appease
Don't want to be like that
As they become
Everything we fought against
The loss of support
For who you are
Now it's "Be what you should be"

It's not for me

Maybe I'm yet to reach that phase
Twenty-one
I'll act my age
And I'll evolve as I see fit
Ask any middle-age wreck
Who thinks that they deserve respect

If they achieved
Anything they wished they would
And you'll understand why
I won't give in
You must understand
I won't give in
Of course I'm scared
My chemicals transform me
I fear I'm becoming something I despise
So help me hold out and tell me
The facts
The truth and everything you know
I've got to live it too
I want to live it right
I just want to live it right

So, here is the plan
We'll stay together at all cost
One little question for you
Don't you feel lost too?
