My puppy dog has anxiety
my puppy dog needs Prozac
she goes crazy for the neighbors
she goes wild for the mailman
it calms me down

Know, my whole world's in decline
that is fine
that is fine

The squirrels in the trees
the squirrels are planning a squirrel attack
the front yard is now mayhem
the birds are in a tailspin
this calms me down

Know, my whole world's in decline
that is fine
that is fine

Glen- Acoustic Guitars, Vocals


Verse
Now my heart beats like a drum
Without her, I’m blind, deaf, and dumb
She looks good in her silk shirt
When she fell from heaven, did it hurt?

Chorus
She’s an angel
She’s so fine
But she’s not fine
This is fine

Verse
She’s her own evil twin
The closer we get, the further she spins
Moving away is her favorite play
She’s keeping her heart safe

Chorus
She’s an angel
She’s so fine
But she’s not fine
This is fine

Bridge
I’ll be here when she gets back home
Sometimes she just wants to be alone
Love is a fear she just can’t accept
She thinks it a secret she’s kept
I don’t mind

Chorus
She’s an angel
She’s so fine
But she’s not fine
This is fine

She’s an angel
She’s all mine
But she’s not mine
This is fine

Moss Palace- This is fine

A little a black abyss of space
Swirls in a technicolor place
I’m looking for a state of grace
In my mind

Is this the peace you’re looking for
They keep it locked behind a door
Are you still sleeping on the floor
This is fine

Chorus:
There’s a tear in it
A cherry colored hair in it
I’m not the one you’re looking for
I’m not the one you’re thinking of

How fair is it
Pretending that you care for it
I’m not the one you’re looking for
I’m not the one you think of when you fall

Line them all up in a row
Invite everyone you know
Tie it all up with a bow
And some cheap wine

How long are you willing to try
To hold onto your crooked lie
There’s always one here on standby
This is fine

Chorus:
There’s a tear in it
A cherry colored hair in it
I’m not the one you’re looking for
I’m not the one you’re thinking of

How fair is it
Pretending that you care for it
I’m not the one you’re looking for
I’m not the one you think of when you fall in love.
Eeep-opp-orp-opp-opp...that means I love you!

THIS IS FINE
BY/djrangerden

The truth is wrong. Go back to the end and start again
These enemies are friends.
it’s a thought

Stare out your eyelids for the things that you need
Mix negativity with your sugar.

This is fine. This is fine.
Just sneak to the crime
And lie through your teeth while you hide for your life
You’ll be fine. You know why
You're making out like you’re so sure that....

Rise up in the morning at a reasonable hour
Turn your face to the bright Crema skies

Then tomorrow again wake up for the first time!
Forget yesterday before it arrives.

This is fine. This is fine!
At the scene of your crime you skate right out there
on your little white lie ...
You’ll be fine. You know why.
You’re not going to die.
You’re 100% sure at the very end
of your life.
This is fine.

This Is Fine -

by Cavedwellers
Truth- Lyrics, vocals, bass, guitar solo
glennny- rhythm guitars, production


History turns on the edge of a blade
And I have history with you
Promises broken are promises made
But staying’s all I know to do

Loyalty or weakness
No drapes shut out the bleakness

This is fine this is fine
There’s no leaving on my mind
But you’ll find there’s a line
I don’t mean to be unkind
But if one more thing
That I find irritating
(No exaggerating)
Then I’m outta here

Bitterness sits at the base of the glass
I’ll have whatever you’re pouring
It’s love till we’re dead. I meant what I said
That I’d be forever adoring

The contract has no rider
If the job is an insider

This is fine this is fine
There’s no leaving on my mind
But you’ll find there’s a line
I don’t mean to be unkind
But if one more thing
That I find irritating
(No exaggerating)
Then I’m out of here

This Is Fine
Geech Sorensen

Jump on in, the water’s nice
No tomorrow, but there’s tonight
The sound that you might hear can barely cut through

You left your problems at the door
It’s beginning to get warm
And the sight that you’re seeing is coming to view

You can say that we’re getting free
It’s becoming hot for me

Two ways that it’s gonna be
Slowly but suddenly

Now the sweat’s dripping down your spine
A fever shouldn’t stop a good time
We’re gonna party like it’s ‘99 and then in a flash

As it all comes down you’ll see
There is no society
You for you and me for me, ashes ashes we

Two ways that the end will be
Slowly and suddenly

Two ways that the end will come
Slowly and all at once

Two ways that this will be done
Slowly and all at once

Two ways that the end will come
Slowly and all at once

If you believe, it’s not a lie
Tell yourself this is fine

Jon Eric - This is Fine

Today I almost ran my car off the road on purpose this is fine
I got to work early so I could cry before clocking in this is fine

It’s only a platitude, it may be an insincere line
It’s practically meaningless, and this is fine

The china in the cabinets rattled when you slammed the door this is fine
I stared at the bottle and I swear it stared back at me this is fine

It’s only a platitude, it may be an insincere line
It’s practically meaningless, and this is fine, this is fine, this is fine
It’s practically meaningless, and this is fine

Oooh, I need you to tell me sometimes
Oooh, I need to believe it

Feel like I’m slogging through tar and I’m not worthy of your help
I bite you so that you’ll learn to hate me as much as I hate myself

It’s only a platitude, it may be an insincere line
It’s practically meaningless, and this is fine, this is fine, this is fine
It’s practically meaningless, and this is fine, this is fine, this is fine
It has to be fine...

Mandibles

Your words may hurt, but I know you didn’t mean it
We need to talk, but I know it’s inconvenient
I can wait, cause I’d throw you off your game if
I said the things that I’m really not okay with

When we’re alone, you’re all I ever needed
When we’re at home, there’s nothing in between us
I hold you closer cause your plaintive eyes are calling
You say you love me, but your silence is appalling

This is fine, I tell myself

This is fine but that’s not final
This is finally a talk I’m having in my mind
This is fine but the design’ll show its weakness
Eventually the bleakness will align
(this is fine, this is fine….)


I’m keeping calm, while my mind is full of screaming
I carry on, though these motions have no meaning
Somethings changed, beyond all recognition
And what remains becomes an imposition


This is fine, I tell myself

This is fine but that’s not final
This is finally a talk I’m having in my mind
This is fine but the design’ll show its weakness
Eventually the bleakness will align
(this is fine, this is fine….)


You call me controlling but make me take charge
You say that you’re happy but keep up your guard
To love you is easy but fills me with scars
And I think I’m slowly breaking


This is fine, I tell myself

This is fine but that’s not final
This is finally a talk I’m having in my mind
This is fine but the design’ll show its weakness
Eventually the bleakness will align
(this is fine, this is fine….)

This is Fine (Goodbye Bandita)

You think you’re so innocent (look what you have done)
You think you got away (there’s a smoking gun)
You think there’s nothing wrong (look what you have done)
You think you got away (but I’m gonna run)

CHORUS:
Don’t say you love me
and tell me this is fine
Don’t say you need me
Cruel to be kind

You think you’re in control (little do you know)
You think you can put me down (cause I told you so)
You think you can keep me there (little do you know)
I’m not some little doll (in your puppet show)

Don’t say you love me
and tell me this is fine
Don’t say you need me
Cruel to be kind

BRIDGE:
Don’t think I understand
Don’t think I comprehend
When you take me by the hand
You’re trying to pull me under

Don’t say you love me
and tell me this is fine
Don’t say you need me
Cruel to be kind

rain - this is fine

I don’t like to be compelled to think about it.
So I don’t like it when it comes crawling to me.
But it happens all the time, it’s stuck into my mind,
and now everything i hear is out to get me.
Close my eyes and yell until I can’t hear anything.

and you have to know that you’re fucked up
so bad
and you have to know that you’re fucked up

I
I don’t wanna wish you harm,
But I’d kill you on sight.
I’ll kill you on sight.
I
I don’t wanna wish you harm.
But I do, and I do.
But I do, and I do.
And this thought,
This is fine.

I don’t like to be compelled to think about it.
So I don’t like it when there’s ice running through my veins.
But my body acts faster than my brain can respond
it knows there’s something wrong before I know that there’s something wrong
And there’s always something wrong.

This is Fine by The Serviettes

I'm strong but weak
I'm down on my feet
I'm lost and found
Usurped but crowned

All I have is my song
Take my time but I won't be long
Full of life but bereft
You were right but I left

I'm young and old
For sale but sold
Hirsute but shaved
Still damned and saved

I think this is fine
I think this is fine
I think this is fine
I think this is fine

Starfinger


take a deep breath and hold it long
try to make it to the end of this song
you might pass out but you'll probably survive

make a stiff drink and drink it down
get in the car and drive around
it's a hit and run but we're mostly still alive

the full moon is blood red
hair is growing on your back
and your fingernails are long long long

my tan is growing weak
i've got hairs on my cheek
god made us in his image
open the salon!

this is fine...

take a long walk and soak it in
think about all the places you been
your life is flashing before your eyes
what a nice surprise

take a hard look and count the facts
the rich are standing on our backs
the fireman didn't burn your house down
that was an orange clown


gimme that camoflage hat
gimme that rebel flag tag
don't want no handouts here
don't tread on me hey hold my beer

this is fine...

This is Fine
This is Sam
He’s no ma’am.
He drives his Ram
to the tram.

Last name Fine.
He sells wine
through the Carolinas
to line-signers.

He’s a little out of sorts
since all of his reports
regarding imports
are all contorted.

Distorted. Falsified.
Unfaithful. Untrue.
He’s gonna get caught,
is what I’m telling you.

This is Fine.
He sells wine.
This is Fine.
This is Fine.

Fine’s boss gave him lease for his various schemes
but then HIS boss’s boss just don’t give a toss.

So now Sam sees a bus under which he’ll be thrust
for the numbers he’s faked and the books that he’s baked.

The overclass life. The new pool, the hot wife
all earned off the books since no one had looked
at the finances in a series of years
but those glory days are over now, Sam Fine fears.

This is Fine.
He sells wine.
Just in time
for a deadline.

“Get a grip!” Fine tells himself,
putting down the gun.
He’s not ready for that, he stares at the sun.
It’s a beautiful day. His troubles melt away.
He’s got a wife and a kid or two waiting, okay?

So what if he’s going to jail?
Time’ll go down easy like the gun - what the hell?
Of COURSE he never put the safety on: POW!
Poor Sam never had a chance to say, “ow...”

That was Fine
He sold wine.
It was his time.
He crossed the line.
This was Fine
He sold the wine
Until his time
All is fine.

Paul Masson has no stake

and sponsorship offers will not be accepted

Jules Iolyn is a friend of mine and asked me to post her lyrics here (perhaps she will get her own login soon!)

You did, you got me thinking
Is this really where I ought to be situating

I ran full steam at the opportunity
I didn’t know what lay ahead of me

It’s cool, this is fine
I will prevail but I might fail

Still it’s cool, yeah, this is fine
Nothing to lose, just my mind

I did, I wept, but I did it
What it is you can guess but I won’t admit it

It’s not what I thought or intended it to be
But here I am, in some fine company

So it’s cool, this is fine
Recite the line, put it behind

But is it cool? Is it fine?
If it ruins everything all of the time?

temnere - this is fine


policy bought by execs
sent to dc with blank checks
to be a living atm

why do they seem to hate us
convinced of their covalence
but they need us, we dont need them

yet still we love a story
to bathe the men in glory
who write our futures on their dime

that they may deign to help us
with pocket change, so selfless
somehow a blessing not a crime


but can you blame the ones who do believe
fallen victim to the corporate creed
betters who control our destiny
success conflated with morality


another day another sin
the vicious cycle starts again
the broadcast of our downfall
right before our eyes
(straight into our minds)

we cant deny weve gone astray
when we just choose to look away
complicit in decline


dream of a brighter future
not just a minor suture
but thinking big is such a chore

our meager wants are answered
by vitriol and slander
'its not the time to ask for more!'

demanding supplication
threat of alienation
'yeah youre with us or youre with them'

'we promise we'll do better
all friends in the fair weather
sit down, shut up, dont ask again!'


but can you blame the ones who do believe
taught through relentless conditioning
to read a patterned lack of empathy
as benign points of stochasticity


another day another sin
the vicious cycle starts again
the broadcast of our downfall
right before our eyes
(straight into our minds)


we cant deny weve gone astray
when we just choose to look away
complicit in decline
screaming this is fine

this is fine
screaming this is fine
the epitaph we'll leave behind
yeah this is fine

I gasp and jolt awake
Into the middle of a dream
Is this one mine or yours?

I recognize the night
Can’t put my finger on a face
I think I may have been here before

We played two truths and a lie
In the empty attic
Your hand kept brushing mine
We smoked ourselves to sleep
Even sang a little
Our lips stained red with wine



I am shedding my skin
And there’s a hole where the house had been
There’s a hole where the house had been
I am never gonna let you in

But this is fine, we can play pretend
This’ll be fun, we can play pretend

Those walls were dry as bone
Dry and brittle
Our dreams filled up with smoke

We coughed ourselves awake
To an angry siren
We tumbled down the stairs

Chorus


That was the last time
That I woke up laughing
That was the last time
I slept through the night
I would be waiting
But there’s a hole where my heart was

Chorus x2
