about

Holy new album, Batman! The fifth annual unofficial mix of music by members of Scratch (and particularly its forums) is upon us! With each year we get a great bunch of tunes, and this year is no different. Ever expanding our diversity, this compilation features lo-fi pop, hip hop, noise, utauloids, and everything in between. Five years on, the musicians of Scratch are still going strong.

Track Name: Hailey Simone - Life I Chose
This is the life I chose, yeah
And this the life I'm living
No matter how it goes
I gotta deal with the cards I'm given
That's why I don't mess around
Don't mess around
'Cause you know I'll lay you down
I'll lay you down
This is the life I chose, chose, chose, chose

Up all night, thinking 'bout the stuff that I wrote
A member of this hip hop scene is the life that I chose
I know I'm only fifteen; what facts of life can I quote?
I'm good with my schoolwork, although I'm taking half notes
I'm not from any slums, but I'm not just any rich kid
Being born in the business, you don't count as a witness
Of somebody on a comeup, 'cause you only can get lower
What's money to a sellout when they're truly mediocre?
Running through the four and four although I'm writing solo
I'm in love with this music, like others are with the cocoa
Milwaukee city all my life, I'm all about that loco
I caught you with your flash on, I know you're taking photos
There's a time and place for everything but what's right is here
I'm finally doing what I want to with nothing to interfere
I carry around my CDs, my milestone souvenir
'Cause this life I chose; to me, it's so clear

This is the life I chose, yeah
And this the life I'm living
No matter how it goes
I gotta deal with the cards I'm given
That's why I don't mess around, don't mess around
Don't mess around
'Cause you know I'll lay you down, I'll lay you down
I'll lay you down
This is the life I chose

That's why I don't mess around, don't mess around
Don't mess around
'Cause you know I'll lay you down, I'll lay you down
I'll lay you down
This is the life I chose
Track Name: Skyline - Surf Wax America
The sea is foaming like a bottle of beer
The wave is coming but I ain't got no fear
I'm waxing down because I'll go real fast
I'm waxing down because it's really a blast
I'm going surfin' 'cause I don't like your face
I'm bailing out because I hate the race
Of rats that run around and 'round in the maze
I'm going surfing, I'm going surfing

You take your car to work
I'll take the board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat

My buddies and their homies all come along
They seem invincible as they surf along
The sea is rolling like a thousand pound keg
We're going surfing, we're going surfing

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat
You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat

All along the undertow
Is strengthening its hold
I never thought it'd come to this
Now I can never go home
All along the undertow
Is strengthening its hold
I never thought it'd come to this
Now I can never go home

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat

All along the undertow (you take your car to work)
Is strengthening its hold (I'll take my board)
I never thought it'd come to this (and when you're out of fuel)
Now I can never go home (I'm still afloat)

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat

You take your car
I'll take my board
You take your car
I'll take my board
Let's go!
Track Name: Apples and Oranges - Dog
[Verse 1: Apples]
2012 here, more future every year
Yo, open the curtain, shock the stage, and dissappear
Maybe the master of magic, knower/noah of the unknown
But much more likely to step right out the gravestone
Ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and ghosts
Yo, continental breakfast's when I eat french toast

Apples, back on the track with the samples
Red hat, glasses: the fashion of birdsinbaskets,
classics in the making like Plato/Play-Doh,
Before, maybe so-so, but now a pro, bro;
but not really
At this all the time, so not yearly

[Verse 1.5: Apples]
What's this called? Doing our thing
I suggest you step up to the plate and just swing
Listen to the tunes as they hit your ears,
feel the soup in your skull churn like gears

[Verse 2: Apples]
Oh no, not this again
Don't need a dictionary to know the meaning of friends
Shh, don't make a sound
Don't share this link, this thing's underground

Apples and Oranges, two peas in a pod
We're murdering beats and overheating your iPod
Stop, start rising the charts
The term rockstar doesn't quite hit the mark

[Hook]
You better believe it~
Haters are cheesy and square like a cheez-it~
You better believe it~
Haters are nuts and salty like a peanut~

[Verse 3: Oranges]
Well it's about time I got a verse
there may be more but this is the first
Oranges here, gonna squeeze out some rhymes
Just like you would with lemons and limes
See what I did? Yeah, we're all about puns
That's just how our system runs
Gonna cut like a knife
Giving to you the meaning of life
We're like Jekyll and Hyde; two personalities
We won't mess around with technicalities
Look at us, climbing up the charts
All because we perfected the arts

[Verse 4: Oranges]
Van Gogh can't compare to us
Hear that, Van Gogh? (I bet you didn't)
See our art in every museum
Like the Vatican and Louvre, the home of Herbert Hoover

Bang bang, knock on the door
Guess who it is, it's Apples and Oranges!
Gonna kick out the jams, and just in case you forgot...

[Hook]
You better believe it
Haters are square and salty like a cheez-it~ (that's not the line)
You better believe it~
Haters are nuts and salty like a peanut~

[Outro]
Shoutout to Lightnin
Track Name: PrincessPandaLover - I'm Scratch Cat
Hello I'm Scratch Cat,
Scratch is my name.
Scratch is wonderful,
It's like a game.

Gobo is funny,
Tera is pretty,
Nano is soft,
And Pico is gritty.

Blocks pile up
while I meow a lot.
You shall program
while I bring in a pot!

Don't you wait,
I will scratch on.
Don't you shout
or I'll be non.

*beat drops*

I'm the Scratch Cat,
Scratch is my name.
Everyone is different
while we are the same.

Don't you worry,
I can survive lag spikes
They're just simple.
But not when a virus strikes.
Track Name: Flavored Cardboard - Do the Manta Ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray

Manta rays are large rays belonging to the genus Manta
Their larger species, M. birostris, reaches 7 meters in width

Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray

Do we like manta rays?
Oh yeah
Do we like manta rays?
Oh yeah (I thought so)

Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah, Come on)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Do the manta ray)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Yeah)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
(Do the manta ra-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay)
Come on everybody, do the manta ray
Come on everybody, do the manta ray

Oh yeah
Track Name: Silver Media Productions - Retro Something
In the air, there's retro something
It is overridden by today
Retro trends and retro people
Have seemed to merely fade away

Retro something in the atmosphere
Something that modern music has forgot
But some people will beg for nostalgia
Indicates that hope ain't lost

In the air, there's retro something
It is overridden by today
Retro trends and retro people
Have seemed to merely fade away

Retro something in the atmosphere
Something that modern music has forgot
But some people will beg for nostalgia
Indicates that hope ain't lost
Track Name: Probehead - Now I'm Here
When I was a little boy
I was told to look around myself
But now, as of late
I tend to look inside myself
It was three years ago
When I crossed paths with somebody I had never met
Well, he had blue eyes
It's blurry now; I'm starting to forget

Clocks are going backwards
I am going forwards

And now
I am here
I have no fear that comes to mind
And now
That I'm here
I can turn my back and disappear for now

As the dust thickens up
I find it hard to breathe and difficult to see
It's only natural
The others watch me from the other side
And as for you
You're in the same place that you were before
Excuse my manners
But I don't think I can take it anymore

Clocks are going backwards
I am falling forwards

And now
I am here
I have no fear that comes to mind
And now
That I'm here
I can turn my back and disappear for now
Track Name: Sometimes the Cat - Fever Dream
I'm just a fever dream
Nothing is as it seems
Whether I'm awake or asleep
It doesn't matter to me

Slow march out of bed
Feel the pain throb in your head

I'm just a fever dream
Nothing is as it seems
Whether I'm awake or asleep
It doesn't matter to me
Summer sun that I can see
Feels like it has been weeks

Shiver under blanket warm
Melting, let's get the AC on

I'm just a fever dream
Nothing is as it seems
Whether I'm awake or asleep
It doesn't matter to me
Summer sun that I can see
Feels like it has been weeks
I'm just a fever dream
Nothing is as it seems
Whether I'm awake or asleep
It doesn't matter to me

Fever dream is waking up again
Track Name: Spiffy Flinger - Horse Figure Tango
Yesterday, I went to a Horse Figure Tango
I was ready to dance
But much to my surprise
They were all doin' the twist

It takes two to do the horse figure tango
It takes two to do the tango with me
It takes two to do the horse figure tango with me

I'm not surprised that the Horse Figure Tango
Went and changed all their plans
They've done it once before
And I'm sure they'll do it again

It takes two to do the horse figure tango
It takes two to do the tango with me
It takes two to do the horse figure tango with me
Track Name: Luke Slomba - New Haven
walking down elm street on a dark autumn morning
stumble out the door, down the steps, and into the world
faces on the street, our eyes never meet
i'm just another extra in the movie of their life

the highway cuts a gash right through the city
a grey concrete wall between you and me
but if you're in the car, you wont have to drive very far
because my house is right off exit 43

another day, another sunrise
thousands of people living their lives
all awaken, rub their sleepy eyes
and i am one of them

the bar downtown burned down a few months ago
now everybody in town has to find a new place to go
on the corner for years, it took an hour to burn it down
now people come around just to stare at the hole in the ground

another day, another sunrise
losing track of the passing of time
when thousands of people are living their lives
and you are one of them

when winter rolls in there's nowhere left to go
your troubles are buried under a white blanket of snow
but when spring comes around, you'll finally see
the brown grass that's been dying underneath

Track Name: Bubblegum Cigars - Sleep Tight, Mr. Bedbug
Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
You're just trying to get some rest
But when you crawl into bed, everybody makes a scene
So sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug

You've had a long hard day of toiling
And you just want to get some rest
So you look around, around with your little black eyes
Just trying to find the nearest nest

Let's find a bed on which to lay your head, Mr. Bedbug
If all of them are occupied, you can sleep on the rug

Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
You just want to get some sleep
But when you crawl into bed, everybody makes a fuss
So sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug

They say, "Stay away from Mr. Bedbug!"
They tell me that he bites
But I know that they're spreading lies
And that they say those things in spite

Don't let the meanies get you down, Mr. Bedbug
And even if they say nasty things, I'll just give you a hug

Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
You're just trying to get some rest
But when you crawl into bed, everybody makes a scene
So sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug

Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
You're just trying to get some rest
But when you crawl into bed, everybody makes a scene
So sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
You're just trying to get some sleep
But when you crawl into bed, everybody makes a fuss
So sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
Sleep tight, Mr. Bedbug
