about

RAFT: Rockers Against Flood Tragedy

Musicians (of ALL genres) from the Binghamton, New York area are donating these original songs to support the Rock The Flood cause. Rock the Flood seeks to raise funds to assist the people in the area affected by the devastating flood of September 8, 2011.

If you want to help MORE, you can! You may name your own price when buying just a single track or the whole album.
OR - see Rock the Flood for more info on how to help in other ways.:

Half of the money raised goes to CHOW (run by Broome County Council of Churches) and the other half to Owego Revitalization and Betterment Corporation.


For those who want to know: please note that 85% of the dollar amount from these sales goes to the charity. 15% does go to Bandcamp.com. It is their website service (which is free to us) which has made it possible for us to put together this album for everyone on the web. Please don't let it scare you off. If we made real CDs to buy, we'd be sinking hundreds of dollars into manufacturing costs. I think this deal is fair for everyone.

Track Name: Zarni De Wet - Fire
Hold me now cause Im about to light up


Just sit there, let me look at you

Tell me all the things you wanna do

I've never met a man with so many dreams who finds time to be so handsome

it seems you're so much more than the boys next door

the ones I used to go for


Hold me now cause Im about to light up

Put me out 'cause Im about to burn down everything

It's not my fault that everything you touch turns to fire


You've got fuel, you've got a disease

I'm better on my own usually

but Im getting into trouble with your hands around my middle


Hold me now cause Im about to light up

Put me out 'cause Im about to burn down everything

It's not my fault that everything you touch turns to fire
Track Name: Mark Scudder - I Will Love You If You Let Me (The RAFT Mix)
So much sadness and depression
So much anger and despair
Your shattered hopes and dreams surround you
The outcome isn't fair

We did it your way to begin with
Your so-called wisdom got us here
I shouldn't have to tell you this
But just let me be clear:

I will love you if you let me
I will be there when you call
I will love you if you let me
No, I won't let you fall

I know I'm rough around the edges
It makes me nervous every day
But I would be there if you let me
But if you don't, I have to go away

I've been right here this whole time
Reaching out with no success
I think you'd rather have my honest mistakes
Than his willful carelessness
Track Name: Voodoo Highway - I Land On My Feet
I didn’t know what life had in store

One day was on top then I was on the floor

Life isn’t always full of sunshine

But when all is said and done I make out just fine



I may stumble and I may fall

But I keep my cool right through it all

When the pressure’s on and I feel the heat

Oooooh, I land on my feet



Run into some losers in my day

Thought they could break me, thought I’d slink away

Tried to take me down they were sure that they could

But I bounced right back and don’t it feel so good!



I may stumble and I may fall

But I keep my cool right through it all

When the pressure’s on and I feel the heat

Oooooh, I land on my feet



Life’s not perfect, least, most of the time

And heartache can be so damn easy to find

But through each long day and every last dark night

Ya gotta keep on keepin’ on till you get it right and



You may stumble and you may fall

But just keep your cool right through it all

When the pressure’s on and you feel the heat
Ooooooh, you gotta land on your feet
Track Name: Blues Bonanza - White Boy Dance
White Boy Dance lyrics:
I ain't sayin' that I have to take you home
I'm just swayin and my eyes start to roam
To you stayin' in the back on the phone
Hope our playin will move your legs of stone

So Dance, my white boy dance
C'mon, girl, give it a chance

Got you movin' that's what I like to see
Keep it groovin' dance into the ecstasy
you've got moves I bet you don't even know
Let's get stupid after I finish this show

So Dance, my white boy dance
C'mon, girl, give it a chance
Go into a trance
Dance that white boy dance

I just need to find
some other way to you
I just need you to dance on the floor tonight

We're just shuttin this place down for tonight
Sound's exploding I don't wanna see a fight
You've been dancing' haven a good time
Would it kill you to tell me how to make you mine?
Track Name: Question Of Honour - I Don't Know
I feel so lonely
A candle on a shelf
Burning slowly
Still there is no one else

I punch the numbers
But I can’t get you (through)
There are no others
That I can turn to

I don’t know what to do with my affection
I don’t know what to do with myself
I don’t know what to do with my affliction
I don’t know what to do by myself

And etched upon my face
Time is not my friend
An armistice in place till
Our separation ends

I hear her whisper
Her voice is coming through
I say that I miss her
But it just won’t do

I don’t know what to do with my attraction
I don’t know what to do with myself
I don’t know what to do with my reaction
I don’t know what to do by myself

The seconds seem to last for hours
The hours just like days
The calendar upon the wall
Doesn’t seem to move at all

I don’t know what to do with my affection
I don’t know what to do with myself
I don’t know what to do with my affliction
I don’t know what to do by myself
I don’t know what to do with my attraction
I don’t know what to do with myself
I don’t know what to do with my reaction
I don’t know what to do by myself

Track Name: Exitpost - Small Ghost
Small Ghost by Ken Herman
Lyrics:

Small Ghost
Haunt another's home

Quiet coasts
filled with smoke
Cul de sac road
I was alone

Cuticles
swollen cold
Greyed atone
Were we alone?

When we were sounds
in shallow graves
quiet calls spoken unto
phone lines along
red coasts
Haunted alone
