Long before AOL and the online version of The Red Dragon Inn ever came into our lives, we played in Bordertown. We had several Game Masters who crafted these memorable adventures for tabletop using Steve Jackson's GURPs system. With the many musicphiles in our rather large collection of players, I recall this one song often on the various mixed tapes that were made for our epic game play sessions.

It still holds up today as one of the many faces of Bordertown.


"River's Gonna Rise"
by David & David

https://youtu.be/wTk9NvFFeWg

God ain't in his heaven
Something ain't right
I hear church bells ringing

In the middle of the night
They're dragging a man by his insides
Through the broad daylight
Thieves have their season sure
But it's getting on midnight

And the river's gonna rise
It's gonna rise
There'll be dancing in the street
When the river done rise

Cold wind is blowing
Flags flapping much too slow
The monkey men sell paradise
To the girls from Tupelo
Black shirted boys in the badlands
Play machine gun rodeo
The downtown missions packed too tight
With folks that got nowhere to go

But the river's gonna rise
It's gonna rise
And there'll be dancing in the street
When the river done rise

God ain't in his heaven
Something ain't right
The TV newsman smiles and says
The curfew starts tonight
They're killing a man from the inside
In the broad daylight
While the propped up puppet wags his head
And watches all the proud things die
But the river's gonna rise

There are many from those old table top days that used this song in play and on the many tapes made for those epic gaming sessions. Often used in the club scenes and adventures as it seemed to just fit so well. It's an oldie but a goodie.


"Dance with Me"

Lords of the New Church

https://youtu.be/5CYN14Ki5o8

Let's dance little stranger
Show me secret sins
Love can be like bondage
Seduce me once again

Burning like an angel
Who has heaven in reprieve Burning like the voodoo man
With devils on his sleeve

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy?
Won't you dance with me?
Ritual fertility.

Like an apparition
You don't seem real at all
Like a premonition
Of curses on my soul

The way I want to love you
Well it could be against the law
I've seen you in a thousand minds
You've made the angels fall

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy?
Won't you dance with me?
Ritual fertility.

Oh come on little stranger
There's only one last dance
Soon the music's over
Let's give it one last chance.

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy?
Won't you dance with me?
Ritual fertility.

Take a chance with me
In my world of fantasy.
Won't you dance with me?
Ritual fertility.

((Music threads its way through every aspect of what we do. This particular song reminds us, the Blood Players, of The Bloods and their origins. They weren't exactly 'civilized' when we originally introduced them back in 1995 on AOL. A lot has changed for the Bloods since then, but somethings... Will never change!))

Thanks for this find goes to Tasha!

Heathens
By - Twenty One Pilots (feat. Mutemath)
Watch It Here!

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse
All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

Welcome to the room of people
Who have rooms of people that they loved one day
Docked away
Just because we check the guns at the door
Doesn't mean our brains will change from hand grenades
You're lovin' on the psychopath sitting next to you
You're lovin' on the murderer sitting next to you
You'll think, how'd I get here, sitting next to you?
But after all I've said, please don't forget

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

We don't deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
Yeah, I trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions
You're lovin' on the freakshow sitting next to you
You'll have some weird people sitting next to you
You'll think "how did I get here, sitting next to you?"
But after all I've said, please don't forget
(Watch it, watch it)

(Watch it)
All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know
(Watch it)
All my friends are heathens, take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know

Why'd you come, you knew you should have stayed
I tried to warn you just to stay away
And now they're outside ready to bust
It looks like you might be one of us

"Not All Heroes Wear Capes"
By Owl City

https://youtu.be/gUvT71sVIi4


(Seemed fitting for this weekend. While my dad has passed(And we miss him every day) he was my hero and always will be.)

He doesn't fight crime or wear a cape
He doesn't read minds or levitate
But every time my world needs saving, he's my superman
Some folks don't believe in heroes 'cause they haven't met my dad

He loves his workshop and rock and roll
He's got a hot rod and a heart of gold
And you could say he's a man of few words, but he talks a lot within
And even though I'm a little taller, I still look up to him

He built me a house in the arms of a tree
He taught me to drive, and to fight, and to dream
When he looks in my eyes I hope he can see
That my dad's a hero to me

Rust-ridden fenders, and doors full of dings
Somehow he can fix about anything
I didn't think he knew how to cry till our dog died that year
He doesn't always say I love you, but I can hear him loud and clear

He built me a house in the arms of a tree
He taught me to drive, and to fight, and to dream
When he looks in my eyes I hope he can see
That my dad's a hero to me

He built me a house in the arms of a tree
He taught me to drive, and to fight, and to dream
When he looks in my eyes I hope he can see
That my dad's a hero to me

My dad's a hero to me
My dad's a hero to me
