about

Hello and welcome to our third compilation! The first six months of Sinkhole Records has been a blast and we could not have done it without the tremendous support from the New Jersey Music Scene. This compilation features Artists/Bands that all began in our beautiful state. All of the bands were hand picked because Sinkhole wanted to offer the best compilation it could! We have friends on this record who we have worked in the past like Hodera, but we offer some really amazing artists that are new with us like: Blue Skeleton and Morningside Lane! Please take a listen to everyone on this record and support the scene. Thank You!

- Christopher Lepore (Founder of Sinkhole Records)

Track Name: Blue Skeleton - A Rock For Two
I will build an island in a city for you and me. In a loft like apartment lies a single mattress where we can be. And you can go to all the parties and be the prettiest girl in all the bars. And we can see all the bands you like in our city full of art

But at the end of the day when everyone else has gone away, I will hold you near on our island

In your skin I found a place to begin with you. I will build a moat so nobody will get through. I will swim through the alligators just to get aw just to get to you. 'Cause in the green on our island there is only room for me and you.

But at the end of the day when everyone else has gone away, I will hold you near on our island.

And we can lock the door and leave the world behind us. We can lock the door no one will ever find us. We can lock the door and leave it all behind us. We can lock the door no one will ever find us. On a rock for two.
Track Name: Asphalt Green - Alternate Side
VERSE:
Been lost for days - never coming home
Strangers look the same - boiled blood and chrome
You're always fighting for your bones and blood
Your bullets hit me with a beautiful thud

CHORUS:
Oh no, don't you know
Ooooh baby, what I'm dreamin about?
Whoa Whoa Whoa, I gotta go
But don't you come a'knockin upon my door

VERSE:
Rain beats on my back, with a silent thunder sound
Dusty 4 wheel drive, lost in muddy ground
Trampled underfoot, when your white dreams gone bad
Heard not understood, this is just a fad

CHORUS:
Oh no, don't ya know
Oh yeah baby, what I'm dreamin about?
My my my, I'mma let it slide
Cause don't you know a thing about your alternate side?

BRIDGE

VERSE:
Drumming out of time, vicious wanderlust
Singing out of rhyme, smoking angel dust
Trampled underfoot, try, try try
Heard not undersood, feel like I'm gonna die

Oh no, don't ya know
Oh yeah baby, what I'm dreamin about?
My my my, I'mma let it slide
Cause don't you know a thing about your alternate side?
Track Name: Morningside Lane - Mellow Drama
Call it desperation,
I can see it in your eyes, you're just about fooled,
All these sudden sounds, they wake you,
But I ain't you,
I feel a feeling coming on,
I feel a feeling coming on,

Darkness, Darkness in the air, I see my tombstone in the night,
The preacher didn't know my name, so I'm running out of time,
Darkness, Darkness in the air, a taste of sugar in the night,
All my youth's been traded in, so I'm running out of time,
I'm running out of time,

And what am I made of?
I can feel it in my bones, that I've been left behind,
On my knees looking for the answers, blood was cold but I was fine,
I feel a feeling coming on,
I feel a feeling coming on,

Darkness, Darkness in the air, I see my tombstone in the night,
The preacher didn't know my name, so I'm running out of time,
Darkness, Darkness in the air, a taste of sugar in the night,
All my youth's been traded in, so I'm running out of time,
I'm running out of time.

And it drags on baby, it drags on baby,
A time and a place where my sentiment grows,
It drags on baby, it drags on baby
Life in this monster town, so I take the high road,
It drags on baby, it drags on baby,
A time and a place where my sentiment grows,
It drags on baby, it drags on baby,
Life in this monster town, so I take the high road,

So I take the high road..
So I take the high road..
So I take the high road..
Track Name: Hong Kong Graffiti - Please Tie My Shoes
Please tie my shoes
the laces go through my heart
and through yours too

So many doors
that won't lead to you at all
and I'm turning and searching for you

Please tie my shoes
I'm so alone and you know I don't want to be here
just to be clear

It could be us three
just me you and the music thats making
this work till the time you get here

I asked for the time from your life
you told me that it was a lie
I don't know where to go
I don't know what to do

I asked for the time but you knew I was lying and it's going down into pieces lie by
and i need a place to go
i have no places so

Please save me while I'm here
Please take me while I'm here
Track Name: Winnebago - Drunk at the Track
I'll bet the farm
I won't see my legs
My greatest love
Is my greatest fear

Everyone's drunk at the track
Integrity don't pay you back

I'll set the steps on fire
I'm foaming at the mouth
You keep the keys
But I'm still asleep
Track Name: Hodera - Just my Instinct
Waiting on the world and I'm going insane,
all for nothing.
It's really hard to change my stubborn brain.
It's all or nothing. That's just my instinct.

I don't know what you want me to say.
Are we nothing or are we something?
You said it's my fault, but I can explain.
It's all or nothing. That's just my instinct.

All that I can say is that I'm afraid,
when theres really nothing to keep me going.
I told you I admit that I'm afraid,
when theres really nothing to keep me going
Track Name: Khalid Quesada - Radio Silence
Your carnival skin is buried in silk.
I'm shooting the moon and fronting the milk.
Tonight, it's alright.
You tell me He can't see sins in the dark.
But all of this passion is bound to leave marks.
Sometimes we are crimes.

They can't tell us what to do.
A careful lie could make it true.

Give me a kiss, I'll give you a hit.
Let's savor the moment, then we can split.
Today, it's okay.
There's no need to save us, honey, we glow.
There's beauty in chaos and all that we know.
In time, we will shine.

They can't tell us what to do.
A careful lie could make it true.

I'm trying to carve our love in the mud.
You're laughing hysterics; I'm coughing up blood.
It's alright. I know I'm alright.
This miracle montage is severed in doubt.
Radio silence from here on out.
It's okay. I swear, it's okay.

They can't tell us what to do.
A careful lie could make it true.
Loaded aim we both refuse.
We can't keep the love we choose.

This miracle montage is circled in doubt.
Radio silence from here on out.
Track Name: Debt League - Toxoplasmic Schizophrenia
There is a parasite
It's feeding on my mind
Now I will go insane
Nothing is in my way

My baby's got me sick

Altered my neurons
I guess I'm different
It's all a waste of time
A placebo effect

My baby's got me sick

If flegrs theory's right
We're really all deranged
I'd like to know what life was like before the bugs came

My baby's got me sick

Nobody even knows
We've been infected
It's not a big surprise
We'll just keep living life
Track Name: Feudalism - Potato
For the past few years, I've been living in my head
By my output you'd have guessed that I was dead
Green and brown and black things in my chest,
In inevitable, perpetual debt

Hopefully I will be better soon,
Like a butterfly out from a cocoon
Like a flag perpetually at half-mast,
Like a turtle learning how to move fast

Kill me! Kill me! Kill me! Kill me!
I just want to die!
Someone get me out of here, tonight!
This poison, it makes me feel funny,
But it's too slow acting; I've tried!
Doc, there's gotta be something else you can prescribe!
Track Name: The Blithedale Romance - Treason
I am a well intentioned man
Don't need your reasoning
I want to make you feel
I want to make you move
But I don't know the right words to use
Gotta be something that I could catch your eye
Gotta be something that could catch your
I am a well intentioned man

I want your mind on my mind
I want to see what's inside
I want your
I want your mind on my mind

I will not crumble where I stand
I'll hold my head above the river rapids
Don't need your hand
I have grown
To the man I am
With a lesson known

When the skin that you're in doesn't suit your needs
(Cut it off)
Cut it off and try again

Wrestle down the righteous
So your actions pass without judgement
Track Name: Puddle Splasher - You Will
I'm not sure if you're awful, it's true
I just accuse in hopes that you'll say that I'm wrong

You said
Don't wave your mind around
It's only if you can
But you will

I'm not sure it's obvious to all of you
I just know it's obnoxious to all of me

You said
Don't wave your mind around
It's only if you can
But you will

I said no more
I said no more
I said no more
I said no more
