Four Corners
by Lichen Throat

Fading light
on the desert highway.
I think it’s going to rain
all night.
Only five,
first time I’ve been this way—
such a long, long drive
tonight.

Going to Arizona, going to Colorado,
New Mexico, and Utah, all at a single point. (x2)

Finally there
and the rain still drips;
pavement wet everywhere
I look.
Four states meet
at this exact point;
cross state lines with my
little foot.

Go to Arizona, go to Colorado,
New Mexico, and Utah, all at a single point. (x2)

What state am I in now? (x8)

Run in circles
over Four Corners.
Voice rings out through
the rainy night.
Run in circles
over Four Corners.
Never forget what I do
tonight.

Go to Arizona, go to Colorado,
New Mexico, and Utah, all at a single point. (x2)

Four Corners
by Vom Vorton, with lead guitar by Mo

You can’t find your direction
You’re all over the map
You thought you had it figured out
But fell into a trap
You mixed up things you didn’t need
with things that your life lacked
Lets put you back together
Get your life back on track

You used to be so confident
Now you're always changing your mind
If you need a confidante
I can always spare the time
To hear you explain
The pain
Of how you lost it
Again
And ended up broken hearted
You turned four corners
And ended up back where you started

You didn’t know where you were headed
But you sped up anyway
You shut your eyes, and when they opened
it was yesterday
You say you don’t know where you’re going
You say your life’s a mess
lets find a new destination
Reset your GPS

I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you
I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you
When you lose your way just be brave
I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you

I will raise my voice to the heavens above
I will call for you
I will raise my voice to the heavens above
I will call for you
I will pull you near so you can hear
I will raise my voice to the heavens above
I will call for you

I will lend my arms if you're gonna fall
I'll be holding you
I will lend my arms if you're gonna fall
I'll be holding you
If you let go I want you to know
I will lend my arms if you're gonna fall
I'll be holding you

I know it's hard for you
As you slowly fade away
And there's not much we can do
To help you ease the pain

I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you
I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you
When you lose your way just be brave
I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you
I will go to the four corners of the world
I will look for you

I generated these lyrics with a lyric generator thingy. I was going ho use them - but ran out of time. But I will post them anyway because they are pretty cool. Maybe someone can use something?

Verse 1
Went to the corner tried to hit something good
I heard a voice I didnt think that I would hear
It wont be that long
The rust in the corners

Pre-Chorus
Give me four eggs
And a couple of cats

Chorus
One step from two steps from
Three steps from four steps from
I see trouble from the corners
See trouble from them whispering

Verse 2
The streets were full of rain on a Friday night
On the corner no one was staying
Yeah, the thrill will die
I think you would too

Pre-Chorus
I try to face tomorrow today, every time I push away
So if you see it coming around the corner, then you better last out than me

Chorus
One step from two steps from
Three steps from four steps from
I see trouble from the corners
See trouble from them whispering

Bridge
Oh, the road gets complicated
And the industry tries to structure you in their plans

Chorus
One step from two steps from
Three steps from four steps from
I see trouble from the corners
See trouble from them whispering--

Four Corners - Paco del Stinko

Four corners make a square
It takes two balls to get a spare
You say you know it baby but you don't care
It's love and war so everything's fair

(We are in a corner) I'm in another
(We are always fighting) But if I had my druthers
We'd all just get along yeah


Go on and take a look at the pyramid
It holds secrets both varied and myriad
You think I'm joking but I'm dead serious
It took three thousand years just to clear a bit

(One) First corner (Two) and I'm in it
(Three) Second corner and I'm gonna (Four) win it
(One) Third corner and (Two) you'll try and spin it
(Three) Fourth corner goes (Four) and back to the beginning
(One two) Yeah (Three four) Right to the start


A circle is and unbroken line
Into infinity and the end of time
You call me crazy hey but I'm doin' fine
It's your backwards thinking that is truly the crime

Why can't we all get along

It only takes a little bit of tryin'
So cut the shit and stop all of your lyin'
Pause for a minute and open up your mind (And open wide)
It takes four corners to truly see eye to eye
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

Four Corners
Phlebia

Their heads are oval-shaped
Their skins are pallid gray
You know they come from so far away
They've got those swishers lying in the ash tray

Their sequined leisure suits
And extra-solar shades
Their disposition is so blase
They time travel with a smooth sashay

Transmissions over space
Interplanetary waves
Speak of swanky after-hours soirees
Slap and pop the bass and sip on Tanqueray

Those grays they got the name
But not the time and place
You best look sharp; you best not be a square
At club Four Corners it's a funkified fair

Got a ship full of aliens looking to get down
Blasting cross space, trying to find that funky sound
They're looking at a map, looking for the place to go
There's a destination called Four Corners in New Mexico
"There must be only one place by that name they tell themselves
As they're pouring out the liquor bottles sitting on the shelf
Floating zero gravity doing their pre-game
The dranky drank and stanky stank is fogging up their brain

They're going to the party so far away from home and they
cover up the stank with a bottle of cologne
They're busting up and cutting up and falling on each other
Finish up the blunt, now they're lighting up another
A million miles an hour, E.T Mayflower
Got a lack of brainpower, pour another whiskey sour
That they're about to devour, got another half hour till they're
crashing to the Earth like a meteor shower
So lit and they're lighting up the sky at night
The fireball's so luminous like civil twilight
Down below they see those ridges and valleys of the
desert southwest with its glyphs of Kokopelli
Slow down, put it in a hover
Before we do a crash land, glassify the white sand
Recalibrate the plan -- this ain't no club!
Just mile after mile of desert shrubs
They messed up the latitude, screwed up the longitude
Bungled the altitude, fouled up the party mood
Found them selves in the wrong part of the state, they would
Re-navigate, but they can't see straight
Got way too faded, turnt up to eleven
Tried to visit '74, ended up in '47.
And they're running out of gas (but never out of class!)
Losing control coming into a crash
Bam! In a cloud full of dust outside of
Roswell, New Mexico, not too far from Texas
Intercepted by the feds, wondering what the fell just happened when
Staggering from the cockpit comes the funked up captain
"Where's the party at!?" was the first thing that he said
With an inebriated chuckle and a knot on his head
Got a ship full of grays, having fun and getting high
Now they've got themselves an interstellar D.U.I.

Sorry officer, I'm afraid there's been some kind of a mix up, we's just trying to find a club! Area 51? Is that a club? They got drink specials? Aww, I'm so embarrassed, just tell 'em our ship was a weather balloon!

Four Corners - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Your face glued to a plastic tube
Every desire a shiny box
Everything laid out for you
Aligned with all your wants
Your fear was to be square
Your dream to be so popular
Friends and all the fun you shared
Love a tickle in your gut

Chorus:
Now you dream in squares
Shortest route to whatever is easiest
Four corners still life
Background art, someone else's masterpiece
Life in black and white
You used to spread your wings taking to the sky
All that was before
You decided to embrace the lie

Your meals inside a plastic cube
Life inside a mortgaged box
Friendship just until it tears
Love as long as it is soft

Chorus.

There's only 4 corners
And everything else
is straight lines or gaps
There's only four chords
And everything else
is pretentious or trash

There's only 4 feelings
The happiness,
The the anger the hate the dread
There's only 4 reasons
And none of them
Add up in the end

Chorus.
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

Four Corners
By: Frontalittle Squad

[MC Baccarat]
The other day I spilled a Coke on the dash and it boiled
Like our Accord morphed into Pepto Tesla Coil
I slammed the door and the airbag spat blackbirds
And then it blasted Black Sabbath— backwards
And I don't even own any Sabbath tapes
(I was actually wondering if you could please pick a few up, 'cuz Ozzy rocks!)
What the fuck did the car just say?
Wait— What the fuck? Did the car just TALK?
That's it. Take the keys, take the jug of antifreeze,
The little plastic, if you please
From now on, the Squad walks.
(It's, like, more environmentally friendly...)

[BEEFY]
(all right, let's see what the damage is here...)
Well, fluids have all been topped off
No undesireable hot spots
Wheels have just a few rocks
I tightened all of the lug nuts
I'm no priest, or pastor so don't quote me if you're pressed
In my professional opinion? Your Honda's possessed!
(Evil laughter)

[KEN]
Let me make sure I understand the situation
You’re telling me the honda has a demonic occupation
This is a problem we really need to address
But what do you do with a Honda possessed?
This whole situation’s bizarre
Why does it keep telling us the door is ajar?
I’m getting tired of this abominable verbosity
What are we gonna do about this pismol pink atrocity?

[SODA]
it's been a long time so you might not've stayed on top of this
but I've evolved from webmaster to CYBERSPACE PROPHET, if
arcane knowledge is of use-- then I can simply query it
through this Oculus I hotwired with cerebral inputs
okay, let's see--haunted dolls, houses, amulets
toyotas-- getting closer-- kias... wait for it
BROKEN DOWN GHOSTED UP HONDA ACCORDS? hmm.. there's one fix
I don't suppose one of you is an exorcist?

[CHORUS - GLENN AND RACHAEL]
Our Honda's haunted
We've seen some horrors
We call upon
Four Corners

[HOBLIT]
Not gonna' push up my glasses and read biblical passages
I'm making mad dashes to appeal to the masses
Now give me some voodoo and maybe some chathulu...
What would harry potter do in the movies on Hulu
Grabbin' dusty books from all the crannies and nooks
Paying local DJs to for the hooks and the looks
bustin' out fog machines, laser show and the mad beats
spittin rhymes on facetimes, facebook live, and the tweets

[SAM]
Yo I saw your cries for help on social media
Check out these tips I found on Wikipedia
Could be your car’s got a spirit seeking revenge
It may go back to normal if you let it kill you and your friends
Or if you’ve got a rocket propelled grenade launcher
That often works wonders on automobile haunters
Last resort you can try a bulldozer
Just make sure you crush that car over and over and over

[STARFINGER]
Hey, they doesn't sound quite right what you're stating
I have searched on the world wide web and found ratings
of local experts with the skills required
To eliminate the spirits that we don't admire
Promoted on Bing, yes that's still a thing
2 stars on Yelp, but we need the help
They can analyze the problem and come up with a scheme
To return this car to a dumb machine

[M!KK!]
I can help you, and I'll put you on a better path
There's a movie that you need to see, it's called The Craft
There's four corners, four elements, and it's a fact
Earth, Air, Fire, Water, yeah, it's all of that
To get your car back how it was minus the evil spirits
You'll need an expert, not me, but you'll be pleased to hear it.
I know just who to call, she's capable and inexpensive
But it's crucial that your heart is in it

[CHORUS - GLENN AND RACHAEL]
Our Honda's haunted
We've seen some horrors
We call upon
Four Corners

[Sly V]
Let me get this straight... you have a ghost in your car?
and you came to me because you want to scare it off?
Well, okay... It's bizarre, but it COULD be fun
And if you're paying up front? Sure, let's get r done
I invoke the spirit, call upon the four corners
North, and South, and East, and West across the land and borders
I bind this vehicle, from causing harm and causing violence
Enjoy the silence, plus you'll GET better gas mileage

[ALFONSO THE ACCORD]
Not to mention that my carbon footprint's next to nothing
Just a universal benefit of Honda haunting
How rude of me not introducing myself
Ever since the hit and run I don't quite feel like myself, Hi!
They call me Honda, but in life I was Alfonso
Apologized when I was struck by this car in Toronto
Must've fused with the engine with my very last gasp
And if you'll have me it's an honor to have your foot on the gas

[SAVVY 1]
Wait a minute, hold on, stop, Squad, Let's take a second
Time out, I'm feeling hesitant, it's evident, Let's check in..
Before we proceed... ALL things considered I
Think back in Toronto uh.. WE MAY HAVE HIT A GUY
But then again we may have just hit the jackpot
He's the ultimate CO-pilot, GPS, and mascot
Should we banish him? I'm thinking we could rap with him
He seems so sweet, and he gets it was an accident

[DEF AUTHOR]
Okay, THATS legit, maybe we dont really need an exorcist
Its unexpected but I'm thinking this is excellent
This could be something beneficial for all of y'all
We'll charge admission just to sit within a haunted car
Always wanted a vehicle to talk like KITT
Plus its Canadian - we go for dual citizenship
And if it sticks, that's a bonus, either way we'll manage
And this can work to our advantage

[CHORUS - GLENN AND RACHAEL]
Our Honda's haunted
We've seen some horrors
We call upon
Four Corners
Our Honda's haunted
We've seen some horrors

Four Corners - Tim Hinkle

he lay spread-eagle on the spot that you’d expect him to
like 100,000 photos shot by people passing through
but when he didn’t rise to bid the monument adieu
we started in to wondering what we were meant to do

the blood which into Colorado bled
quite naturally was of the color red
it began to flow out from the poor man’s head
at the moment his head did the ground here meet

his lower limbs, meanwhile, had come to rest
in the jurisdiction just to the southwest
earth welcomed his return and he was blessed
the inscription “under God” under his feet

just how far from a hospital do you think we must be?
should we wait for help to arrive or should we quickly flee?
and when one coroner’s observed the things that he can see
can he declare a cause of death without the other three?

his cell phone bounced into New Mexico
it’s value did decrease as it did go
the shattered screen leaves us no way to know
the numbers needed to inform his kin

toward this place in Utah where we stand
he’s pointing a finger on his right hand
seeming to ask our industrious band
in this final moment how we will begin

Four Corners - Hot Pink Halo

***

We started the day with a map of the future
A perfect and absolute blank
No lines, no directions and nothing to stop us
Just the promise of something and enough space to think

I’ll fold up my four corners
Making sure that my aim is true
Crossing mountains and valleys as I fly
To the ends of the earth with you

How do we move from a page to a promise?
Maybe start with one thousand cranes?
Or do we shape our path from this map of the future
Magicked somehow into a paper plane?

I’ll fold up my four corners
Making sure that my aim is true
Crossing mountains and valleys as I fly
To the ends of the earth with you

And we traverse new seas each day
Across a bridge that I lifted from Hi Fi Way

I’ll fold up my four corners
Making sure that my aim is true
Crossing mountains and valleys as I fly
To the ends of the earth with you
Devil’s got me Lindt! Devil’s got me Lindt!

Four Corners
Berkeley Social Scene

Your footprints on the sidewalk       
Surprise me on my way
I’m tracing their shape in my mind       
Wondering what clues I might find                 

Searching for an answer
Looking for direction (one, two, three, four corners)
I lost you at the corner (one, two, three, four corners)
I’m missing our connection (one, two, three, four corners)

Off to work this morning
Like any other day
But now I’m left doing math 
This isn’t your usual path

Searching for an answer
Looking for direction (one, two, three, four corners)
I lost you at the corner (one, two, three, four corners)
I’m missing our connection (one, two, three, four corners)

I know that I should call you
Solve the mystery
And that would just spoil my fun
Imagining you on the run

Searching for an answer
Looking for direction (one, two, three, four corners)
I lost you at the corner (one, two, three, four corners)
I’m missing our connection (one, two, three, four corners)

Four Corners
Show Me Your Face

first I saw your cool side
then I saw your kind side
next I thought I saw your be-mine side
then I saw the you-didn't-mean-that-after-all
side

four corners of you
four corners of you

everything we do
is so stuck full of tubes
I ring the bell a nurse comes running
show me where to put the drug in

four corners of you
at my feet and head
like a hospital bed
four corners of you
oh hey
there's something I want you to show me

everything I try
smacks my elbow hits my eye
ring your bell
all red-red-rover
where am I
next corner over

one! two! three!
show me your cool side
show me your kind side
show me you're mine you're mine you're mine

four corners of you
like a hospital bed
that is my whole world
from end to end
four corners of you I said
there's something I want you to show me

everything you say
it seems you look the other way
look at me does this remind you
something that you left behind you

four! three! two!
show me your face!
show me your face!

all I see is
four corners of you
