MxAshlynn Great pseudo-anthem that recaptures the feel of angsty '90s alternative in a contemporary chip-rock style. Favorite track: Boxmakers.

Boxmakers 05:21
Life has gone astray for broken men with bills to pay, enslaved by debt they've grown from hope... now lost. They sky is turning grey obscuring dreams we used to chase, and freedom feels so very far away. ...so far away. We are Boxmakers conforming time. We make the things we need but can't afford to buy. We are supplier. We are demand. We feed the mouth resolving strength to bite the hand. And we are Boxmen Purgatorial, complacency is all we know. To fight the desperate primal voice inside we will abide (or die). We are Boxmakers conforming time. We make the things we need but can't afford to buy. We are supplier. We are demand. We feed the mouth resolving strength to bite the hand. We are Boxmakers conforming time. We make the things we need but can't afford to buy. We are supplier. We are demand. We feed the hope reserving strength that given time this plight will end and we'll dream again! And I am a Boxman...

I am Man:Mechanical with eyes of light and heart of coal. I cannot resolve the question: "Why do they die?" The humans have come out to play As lighting cracks the skies of grey I see them run, I see them hide, a simple game we play, my friends and I Soldier men come bearing toys: Metal sticks for making noise. They tickle me with little slugs like white-hot kisses made of love I grab my toy. I kiss them back. They all fall down and I just laugh. ------ Beware the Man:Mechanical With eyes of hate and heart so cold. You can't run. You can't hide. He'll find us and he'll make us die. Far away, fertile womb Life had just begun to bloom. Dawning fate Falling snow Time that we won't know... No!

Young hunks, cyberpunks, and sweet things Trying hard to change your luck Baby thugs, bad spuds, and mean things Living for today or maybe even yesterday Look around, shaky ground, do the right thing In this world you're just a guest Do it now, time's run out for the pig thing Living for today, stealing from tomorrow Law and order puppets remote-controlled by greed And TV preacher robots won't give you what you need Use your head, sidestep the traps Snake through the chaos with a smooth noodle map Besides the king's been dead, they blew off his head in '63! Big bucks, energy sucks, and dumb things Make it hard to live and breathe Add it up, no matter what, there's one thing Living for today there's maybe no tomorrow Subhuman bloodless leaders fed on lies and fear And TV anchor news teams trim all we see and hear Use your head, sidestep the traps Snake through the chaos with a smooth noodle map Besides, God isn't dead, he's in your head Right where he ought to be!

Christmas time is here again A time for kith and kin But fate or fault I'm alone Cognitive defect I could not connect Afraid of life I withdraw He will not be there for you There is no Santa Claus Unladen Christmas Tree He never came for me I resigned to realign the dream I will not depend on you To brighten up the sun (You will not disown me!) Look inside Chop down the lies And find the light inside of me! Hooray, I've got it! Christmas Holiday Pain will fall away The flame of life is burning within me! Santa came that year But not with gifts... and not with cheer. He came as flaws for me to overcome. For in his absence there arose The notion that we can compose Any kind of life that we can dream! Here on Christmas Day Love is here to stay The flame of life will burn the tears away Time is moving slow Please don't make us go Into the sober dawning of tomorrow Let us keep the beauty of today And forge ahead with nothing in our way Hooray! Hooray! Christmas Holiday Pain will fall away The flame of life is not a fantasy! Climb up off your back Ready for attack And fight for all the life that you can live! Revel in the love that you can give! And I found my eyes on Christmas Eve
