HOW DO WE SURVIVE?

At the Sights and Sounds we specialize in music that has meaning. It gives our lives a theory to run on even when we’re staring down at bathroom floor tiles. Or lost in Jakarta. Or flying high on the fire of a new track at Burning Man. We use music to run from our devils. To see the light. To be the light within us that we want to see. Music is the answer to our problems. Here’s 14 of 2017’s tracks from all the writers on this site to you on how it can be your answers, too.

Full playist on Youtube.


SAID I SHOULDA NEVER SHOWN UP
IT WAS HARD ON ME, I HAD TO SNAP BACK



YOU COULD TELL ME I WAS BORN TO QUIT
OR YOU COULD JUST FREAK WITH ME



BEEN ON MY BRAIN, MISS SEROTONIN
LIBERATE YOUR LIMBS, ELIMINATE YOUR LIMITS



WE NEVER LEARN, WE BEEN HERE BEFORE
THEY TOLD ME THAT THE END IS NEAR



I REMEMBER BACK IN OAKLAND
I WAS LYING IN RAPTURE ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR



ALL THE THINGS I’VE SEEN I’VE CHOSEN TO IGNORE
LIFT UP YOUR NAME, WE’LL SEE THE SUN AGAIN



I’VE BEEN DOWN SO LONG
IT LOOK LIKE UP TO ME



I WISH I WAS JUST A CLOUD
TAKE THE -ISH AND DISAPPEAR



THESE PEOPLE ARE MY HEROES
THEY LIGHT ME UP YOUR FLYING CLOUDS



I WATCH LIFE INSIDE OF YOU GROW
EVERY MONTH A LITTLE BIGGER NOW



WE’D FACE SURVIVAL, WE LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON
WE’LL MOVE OR GO ON SOMEHOW



I CAN’T TELL THAT THIS WILL END
MUSIC IS THE ANSWER TO OUR PROBLEMS



I ONLY FLY ALONE, FLY ALONE
I DONT WANT TO BE ALONE IN THIS, SO I STAND OUT



SOMEONE SWEEP ME OFF MY FEET
I’M NOT AN ANGEL, I’M BARELY A (WO)MAN
