about

Dance Club Thursday 2016 is Danielle Ate the Sandwich's third DCT album, with songs added on Thursdays, whenever she has time or feels called to make them. The whole project serves as a way to keep her writing and singing and to stretch her writing and production skills in a different style. The hope is to explore, create, make and push the limits to figure out new ways to use her voice, her fingers and her story telling. Life's too short not to write every single song. Long live Dance Club Thursday!

Track Name: The Man Who You Love
The Man Who You Love

I lit my last cigarette
the smoke was choking on the sunlight
I watched you move poetic
I saw the terror in their eyes

When morning came much later
I found myself, alone in an empty bed
I said my prayers then
to the same God that cursed your name

put the chains on my wrist I am ready
Put the kiss on the cheek of the man who you love
Pull the veil and the bars on my body
put the kiss on the cheek of the man who you love

they gave us costumes
they wrote us into a talking picture show
I was your gun moll
you were my one true love

in the action scene car chase
we ran but they got closer on our trail
I had them fooled to think that
a wild boy broke the will of a good young woman

put the chains on my wrist I am ready
Put the kiss on the cheek of the man who you love
Pull the veil and the bars on my body
put the kiss on the cheek of the man who you love

Drive me off a cliff, I will dip I will dive I will slide to the bottom of the ocean
Drive me off of a cliff, I have made up my mind, I am yours and I’m already drowning

put the chains on my wrist I am ready
Put the kiss on the cheek of the man who you love
Pull the veil and the bars on my body
put the kiss on the cheek of the man who you love

And in slow motion
I reached across the seat to seal
a kiss on your right shoulder
when the bullets broke my heart right through the windshield
Track Name: Baby Springtime ft. Skye Zentz
Baby Springtime by Danielle Ate the Sandwich ft. Skye Zentz


VERSE 1
I’ve been losing letting go
I’ve been tossed out
I’ve been turning
I’ve been hard around edges so long
everybody knows my shape
I’ve been stopped before I started
I went crazy when I lost ya
in the deepest part of the ocean
there is a seed let her belong to me
let her belong to me

CHORUS
In the springtime I shed my layers
In the springtime I show my colors
In the springtime i feed my hunger
Get up, get up! Everybody you’re a flower now

VERSE 2
I’ve been hiding, losing hope
I’ve been stuck and I’ve been sinking
I’ve been in the dark so long I forget how the sun feels on my face
I’ve been wrong for feeling right
I’ve been giving up on the good fight
in the deepest part of the ocean
there is a seed, let her remember me
let her remember me

CHORUS
In the springtime I shed my layers
in the springtime I show my colors
in the springtime i feed my hunger
Get up, get up, everybody you’re a flower now
In the springtime I shed my layers
in the springtime I show my colors
in the springtime i feed my hunger
Get up, get up, everybody you’re a flower now

RAP FLOW
Our essence is intangible, florally audible
Already in bloom to the tune of a dream or an oracle
Notes on a page iridescent and questioning everything
This life is perfect it’s a sparkly blessing

BRIDGE

I am just blooming
don’t know what I’m doing
but every morning
I’m up with the sun

I am amazing
don’t care what they’re saying
‘cause inside the center
I burn like a fire

I am so golden
it’s like I’m unfolding
with all of my petals
to show you the light

I am just blooming
don’t know what I’m doing
but every morning
I’m letting my sun shine

CHORUS
In the springtime I shed my layers
in the springtime I show my colors
in the springtime i feed my hunger
Get up, get up, everybody you’re a flower now
In the springtime I shed my layers
in the springtime I show my colors
in the springtime i feed my hunger
Get up, get up, everybody you’re a flower now
Track Name: Alive
Alive by Danielle Ate the Sandwich

We wait a while without getting anywhere
We were all counting all the moments that we stood there
we were afraid, but what we didn’t know of what
until we felt on our face, the warmth of the sun

we are alive / we are the chosen ones
we are alive / we are the chosen ones

You wait a while, without getting anything
but you are standing on the edge of a good thing
you are afraid, take a deep breath of air
there will be darkness, but you make the light that you want to see there

we are alive / we are the chosen ones
we are alive / we are the chosen ones

we are alive / we are the chosen ones
we are alive / we are the chosen ones

We wait for change, but we don’t have the time
we need our freedom but so does the other side
You might forget, the one sitting next to you
is just a single, beating heart and so are you

we are alive / we are the chosen ones
we are alive / we are the chosen ones

we are alive / we are the chosen ones
we are alive / we are the chosen ones
Track Name: Lion in My Cage
Lion in My Cage // by Danielle Ate the Sandwich

My crying eyes, my crying eyes
won’t keep me no more
My tumbling lies, my caught up goodbyes
won’t keep me no more

If you need me, I’ll be falling, falling falling
I try to set it straight but there’s a lion in my cage
and it won’t get out


My sick and disturbing proverbial wording
won’t keep me no more
My set of excuses, my reasons for moving
won’t keep me no more

If you need me, I’ll be falling, falling falling
I try to set it straight but there’s a lion in my cage
and it won’t get out

I gotta be moving on, I gotta be moving
So I gather all my pieces, I gather all my pieces and go

If you need me, I’ll be falling, falling falling
I try to set it straight but there’s a lion in my cage
and it won’t get out
Track Name: Howling at the Moon For You
Howling at the Moon for You by Danielle Ate the Sandwich

Verse 1
The moon is full, it’s bright and yellow
It’s making me so it’s hot and heavy
All the city is alive with ghosts and goblins
There is no place to hide

I’m staying in just to be cautious
boarding my windows and locking my doors
I know there’s things that go bump in the night
but what I fear is right here inside

Chorus
Ha ha ooh, ha ha oh woo
Ha ha ooh, I’m howling at the moon for you

Verse 2
The moon is full, it’s causing changes
I’m going wild and I need some taming
I’m crawling out of the coffin tonight
if I open the door will you come inside

So drink my blood, make it eternal
heightened senses & primal yearning
losing control and I just can’t quit
I wanna feel the way the shape shift

Chorus
Ha ha ooh, ha ha oh woo
Ha ha ooh, I’m howling at the moon for you

Bridge
I’m gonna give you a trick and a treat
I’m gonna let you explore my corn maze
Go ahead and carve my pumpkin
Can you hear my heart beat a bumping

Chorus
Ha ha ooh, ha ha oh woo
Ha ha ooh, I’m howling at the moon for you
I can’t handle this lycanthropy X3
I can’t handle you, can you handle me?

Chorus
Ha ha ooh, ha ha oh woo
Ha ha ooh, I’m howling at the moon for you
Track Name: Notes In Red
Notes in Red by Danielle Ate the Sandwich

I read the movie script
I didn’t like the ending
I wrote my notes in red
I propose an amendent

the 4th act was a doozy
the characters were foolish
I wrote my notes in red
they walked away when I would’ve run instead

So time tells truth
and hours don’t lie
my body aches
for you by my side

So time tells truth
and hours don’t lie
my body aches
for you by my side

I am a wild man
I cross the desert every day

I die of thirst because
I can’t drink anything
without choking on your name

So time tells truth
and hours don’t lie
and my body aches
for you by my side

So time tells truth
and hours don’t lie
and my body aches
for you by my side

I wrote my notes in red
I wrote my notes in red
I wrote my notes in red
I hope this turns different

How many times do I have to dream it
how many times do I have to make believe it
how many times do I need to fake it
how many times until you come back

So time tells truth
and hours don’t lie
and my body aches
for you by my side

So time tells truth
and hours don’t lie
and my body aches
for you by my side

I wrote my notes in red
I wrote my notes in red
I wrote my notes in red
I hope this turns different

I wrote my notes in red
I wrote my notes in red
I wrote my notes in red
I hope this turns different

Let’s start from scratch
I won’t say things I can’t take back
Let’s just start over
pull me under your covers
Track Name: Masks
Masks by Danielle Ate the Sandwich

dry the petals in the pages
catch the kettle ‘fore it howls
let the chips fall where they’re gonna
you are not this hour

drop the tea bag in the water
watch the sugar disappear
rest the spoon upon the doily
you are not this year

load the dishes in the washer
keep a prayer upon your lips
wipe the counters and the floorboards
you are not this mess

we all have masks that we wore
masks that we swore we were
masks that we wore

let the cupboards all be barren
let the hallway lightbulbs burst
let the carpets pull from corners
you are not this curse

Trace the path ways you have wondered
and be grateful they were there
let the marked walls be reminders
you are different here

wipe the dust from where it settled
steal a deep breath from the air
and one last look at the wreckage
you are not these tears

we all have masks that we wore
masks that we swore we were
masks that we wore

we all have masks that we wore
masks that we swore
but we’re not masks anymore

in the morning when the sun finds
the one sliver in the blind
and lets a warm light on your pillow
you will be alright

you will be alright
you will be alright
