Well now the ocean speaks and spits and I can hear it from the interstate, And I’m screaming at my brother on a cell phone he’s far away, I’m saying nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today, Until we’re parking in an alley, Just hoping that our shit is safe. -Another Travelin' Song by Bright Eyes

I would trade it all in again for a nice stroll in your skin, just to cure what ails. -To Cure What Ails by Shakey Graves

We set controls for the heart of the sun; one of the ways that we show our age. -All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem

And the rent is too high living here between reasons to live, Where you can't sleep alone, and your memories groan, and the borders of night start to give. -A New Name for Everything by The Weakerthans

Who are you to tell me I can't love you the way mothers love daughters? The way Mary was closest to Joseph & babies is close to their fathers. You don't know me and love got a secret handshake and mad inside jokes. -Warm Enough by Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment

First thing we'd climb a tree / & maybe then we'd talk / Or sit silently / and listen to our thoughts / Illusions of someday / cast in a golden light / No dress rehearsal / this is our lives / -Ahead By A Century by The Tragically Hip

When the colour of the night / And all the smoke for one life / Gives way to shaky movements / Improvisational skills / A forest of whispering speakers / Let's swear that we will / Get with the times / In a current health to stay / Let's get friendship right / Get life day-to-day / In the forget-yer-skates dream / Full of countervailing woes / In diverse-as-ever scenes / Proceeding on a need-to-know / In a face so full of meaning / As to almost make it glow / O' for a good life, we just might have to weaken / And find somewhere to go / Go somewhere we're needed / Find somewhere to grow / Grow somewhere were needed / -The Tragically Hip

Your hair like sweetgrass braided through / We stay busy we always do! / My developing state of consciousness / Endless roads to nothingness / And cities filled with emptiness / And crowds of faceless ignorance / I'm over it I'm over it / Pull up my anchor, sail my ship / Countless ways to feed my kids / Countless ways to route my trip / I'll harvest this and replant it / Harvest this and replant it / Like when the mother met the father / Kissed the horizon and gave birth to stars / Or when the lovers turned into thunder / Then came the breakthrough / Then came the storm / Well I'll keep traveling until my heart finds peace / But even when it does I'll keep moving / Cuz there's so much to see / Ground beneath bare feet / I love the dark-lit loneliness / My greatest teacher peacefulness / The wolf I bear the forest with / The ever present kiss of mindfulness / Compassion wets my every step / Well the puddle shimmer and reflect / And I hold my shield up must protect / Well a suffered heart suffered neglect / Initiate this son of god / Initiate this daughter god / Make us work and feel each part / I Mua by Nahko and Medicine for the People

Is there a light? / You have inside you / Can't touch / A looking glass / Can only show you / So much / Follow the signs / Slowly but steady / Don't rush / The day will come / When you are ready / Just trust / Dancing on the astral plane / Holy water, cleansing rain / Floating through the stratosphere / Blind, but yet you see so clear / Is there a way? / For you to shine / Without fear / From other worlds / But you can't say / What keeps you here / Dancing on the astral plane / Holy water, cleansing rain / Floating through the stratosphere / Blind, but yet you see so clear / Dancing on the astral plane / Holy water, cleansing rain / Floating through the stratosphere / Blind, but yet you see so clear / -Astral Plane by Valerie June
