In a crooked little town They were lost and never found Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground I hitched a ride until the coast To leave behind all of my ghosts Searching for something I couldn’t find at home Can’t get no job, can you spare a dime? Just one more hit and I’ll be fine I swear to God, this’ll be my one last time In a crooked little town They were lost and never found Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground Run away before you drown Or the streets will beat you down Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground When it gets dark in Pigeon Park Voice in my head will soon be fed By the vultures, that circle round the dead In a crooked little town They were lost and never found Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground Run away before you drown Or the streets will beat you down Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground I never once thought I’d ever be caught Staring at sidewalks Hiding my track marks I left my best friends Or did they just leave me? In a crooked little town They were lost and never found Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground Run away before you drown Or the streets will beat you down Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground Run away before you drown! Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground Run away before you drown! Fallen leaves, fallen leaves Fallen leaves on the ground

A devil in a midnight mass He preyed behind stained glass A memory of Sunday class Resurrected from the past Hold your breath and count to four Pinky swears don’t work no more Footsteps down the hallway floor Getting closer to my door I was alive, but now I’m singing… Silent night for the rest of my life Silent night for the rest of my life Violent knight at the edge of your knife “Forgive me, Father” won’t make it right Silent night for the rest of my life Silent night at the edge of your knife You’re guilty! A devil in a midnight mass Killed the boy inside the man The holy water in his hands Can never wash away his sins Hold your breath and count to four Pinky swears don’t work no more Put my trust in God that day Not the man that taught his way I was alive, but now I’m singing… Silent night for the rest of my life Silent night for the rest of my life Violent knight at the edge of your knife “Forgive me, Father” won’t make it right Silent night for the rest of my life Silent night at the edge of your knife You’re guilty! Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound Your bed is made, it’s in the ground Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound Your bed is made, it’s in the ground Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound! Your bed is made, it’s in the ground Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound! Your bed is made, it’s in the ground! Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound! Your bed is made, it’s in the ground! Whisper, whisper, don’t make a sound! Your bed is made and it’s in the ground!

White sparrows Fell from heaven and carried her away Black arrows Cut the strings of my heart, I kneel and pray They gave her one more day To say the words I couldn’t say I’m crying in pain Crying in pain Our love will remain I’m crying in pain

Let the rain fall down, let it fall to the ground Let the rain fall down to the ground And the birds don’t sing, no, they don’t make a sound When you’re six feet underground Well, they cast me out when the word spread around That I never sang in the church And it took one night for the town to decide I’m afflicted by the curse And the rain falls down, let it fall to the ground And the birds don’t sing, no, they don’t make a sound So I look to the sky, tell me why, tell me why Do they all get to live, and I have to die? So they marched me down to the center of town With their pitchforks high in the air I was chained and bound with a blindfold around So the judge wouldn’t catch my stare And they hung my soul from the gallows pole But the witch they never found So to those who don’t fit society’s mold Learn to swim or you will drown And the rain falls down, let it fall to the ground And the birds don’t sing, no, they don’t make a sound So I look to the sky, tell me why, tell me why Do they all get to live, and I have to die? And the angels sing, let it shine, let it shine Dry the teardrops from my eyes And the bells will ring when the blind lead the blind ‘Cause the dead can’t testify And because I can’t take an eye for an eye In the afterlife I’ll haunt you till you die! And the rain falls down, let it fall to the ground And the birds don’t sing, no, they don’t make a sound So I look to the sky, tell me why, tell me why Do they all get to live, and I have to die?

Buried in the mail before the early morning Under the frost thats forming his words are calling Even though alarm bells rang without a warning All of the clocks keep ticking and time keeps flowing Everyone that I hold dearly, I try to keep em close Cause some of them get bitten by the rabbit down the hole Once they walk past through the grass theyre never coming home Easy to label yet so hard to nail Maybe theyve lost their way but found their savior Living in a fabled lifes a fairy tale Except our thoughts are fragile, our minds are frail And everyone that you hold dearly, you try to keep em close Cause some of them get bitten by that rabbit down the hole And you once you walk past through the grass youre never coming home Good God, what have I done? Mother Natures lonely son Mother Natures lonely son Chase that rabbit down the hole Wander through the open door that leads to nowhere Whos gonna take away my pain? Take away my pain? Before you know youre trapped inside the spiders web Youre screaming there is no escape, there is no escape The invitations written clearly, youre the one he chose Until the day youre bitten by the rabbit down the hole Follow his procession deep into the ground below Good God, what have I done? Mother Natures lonely son Mother Natures lonely son Chase that rabbit down the hole Ill drown or I will burn Down the path of no return Down the path of no return Chase that rabbit down the hole Rabbit down the hole, yeah! I never thought Id see her suffer, I gave her all I could And everything I had to offer was never understood How many days until her mind has left the world for good? Good God, what have I done? Mother Natures lonely son Mother Natures lonely son Chase that rabbit down the hole Ill drown or I will burn Down the path of no return, down the path of no return Chase that rabbit down the hole One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll fade away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll fade away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll fade away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll break away One of these days youll fade away
Time Drifts through the sky Without a reason why We walk past the flowers Dont stop for a breath Until theyre above our heads We used to fight Have we made amends? Father I just cant tell Watching you spend The time you have left Trapped in a cold blue bed In darkness well rest Count the days down to one last breath In darkness well rest So forgive what you cant forget We said That we would call But we never spoke at all The years drifted by Weve built up these walls For reasons that seem so small If this is the end Lets bury the past This might be our one last chance Together until The last grain of sand Has dropped from the hourglass Open your eyes and dont forget to breathe If we lose the fight, your spirit will live through me Its time we make right the pages of history Until we find a cure for the enemy All those youve loved All those whove died All we have left is what lives in our minds All those youve loved All those whove died I know their spirits are up in the sky All those youve loved All those whove died All we have left is what lives in our minds All those youve loved All those whove died I know their spirits are up in the sky

Crooked minds have gone astray Have they never learned from yesterday? Only a fool would wear the crown One day the kids will tear it down Yeah Cant you see the clocks are ticking away? They try to fit more hours into the day To see that you was crunching numbers away Were running out breath just to keep up the pace And when did the revolver start the race? When did the revolver start the race? Accelerated architecture creates A manufactured lifestyle for the deranged They swallow up the green and build up the gray And let tomorrows kids dispose of today And when do you think the roof will bottom out? When do you think the roof will bottom out? Crooked minds under gray skies They cant live till something dies Till something dies Crooked minds aint satisfied Till the ground touches the sky Touches the sky Cemetery statue stare into space Sucked into a social media craze Theyre looking for an answer to explain The reason why disaster strikes again A picture perfect family sits at the lake Swimming in a sea of mechanical waste And cant they see a tragedy awaits? Cant they see a tragedy awaits? Crooked minds under gray skies They cant live till something dies Till something dies Crooked minds aint satisfied Till the ground touches the sky Touches the sky Well tear it down Cauterize these blood-shot eyes Tangled in their power lines Tear the ground up with their lives Raise the caskets in the sky Someday soon well realise Nothings left for you and I Nothings left for you and I Crooked minds have gone astray Have they never learned from yesterday? Only a fool would wear the crown One day the kids will tear it down Crooked minds under gray skies They cant live till something dies Till something dies Crooked minds aint satisfied Till the ground touches the sky Touches the sky Cauterize these butchered eyes Tangled in their power lines Tear the ground up with their lives Raise the caskets in the sky Someday soon well realise Nothing lives till something dies Till something dies Till something dies

We spent a life together That should have lasted forever But now its time to sail on So take this anchor from my heart So we can finally drift apart Before we drown in sorrow Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh I gave you sanctuary Under the sun we lived carefree I tried so hard to love you But then you turned your back on me Your good intentions turned to greed And now its good to know that you have been Swallowed up by the ocean Swallowed up by the ocean Swallowed up by the ocean Swallowed up by the ocean Swallowed up Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh The bluest skies turned into grey Through tortured eyes I watched you change Our paradise went up in flames And though I cried a thousand times You didnt hear the rising tide Theres nowhere left to hide since you have been Your devastation took its toll As the waves came crashing to the coast This sinking ship Im taking back from your control It felt so good to cross my arms And renounce my faith in mankind How could you ever be so blind To think that youd survive? Swallowed up by the ocean Swallowed up by the ocean I hope you know that nothing matters now that you have been Swallowed up by the ocean Swallowed up by the ocean I hope you know this ship has finally come to rest I hope you know this ship has finally come to rest I hope you know some day this ship will be your end
Horses and chariots, churches and states Devotion turns dangerous when armed with rules of faith Prisoners and patriots, angels and saints If minds are persuaded enough compassion turns to hate So when the tide comes to bury us, together we must stay Dont let their horses and chariots drag our love away No! Borders and boundary signs drawn by red tape Those who colour outside of the lines define the human race Warlords and suffering eyes, soldiers and slaves The side of the fence that we climb determines whos afraid So when the tide comes to bury us, together we must stay Dont let their horses and chariots drag our love away Until we swallow our pride our hearts will collide And the skies of hysteria will come rain down on you Cleanse the salt from the hands who divide our world in two So when the tide comes to bury us Were lucky to live while so many die Dont let the horses and chariots If only we saw the view from their eyes Until we swallow our pride Weve chosen a faith, weve chosen a side Until we swallow our pride our hearts will collide

Do it again, she said to me So I nailed my hand to the baseboard floor Hysterically, laughing at me She begged the question and I begged for more Now I water the thorn you rammed Deep into my side, watch it fertilize Cause you shoved your finger right down my throat And you made me puke up all of my pride Pop the beach balls, burn the photos C-4 your safe and youll never grow old So get out of dodge and become a thought Cause once you’re a thought, hopefully youre forgot If we break up, don’t write a song That would drag my name through the shit, the mud Cause I’ve seen some solid swimmers who drowned When you unleashed the dam and caused the flood But with free choice there comes free will And I’m so happy she decided to leave Cause now I’m alone, the demons come home And now my plan is rolling up its sleeve Pop the beach balls, burn the photos C-4 your safe and youll never grow old So get out of dodge and become a thought Cause once you’re a thought, hopefully youre forgot Pop the beach balls, burn the photos C-4 your safe and youll never grow old So get out of dodge and become a thought Cause once you’re a thought, hopefully youre forgot Because my morale’s begun to decay And all my friends have the same thing to say They say that good times have faded away They say that they’re all worried about me Cause I feed birds in the cemetery And I rake leaves off the grass in my grave Because my memory lane is now paved My memory lane is now paved My memory lane is now paved My memory lane is now paved But now my memory’s back and there’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong! There’s nothing wrong!

dataset = load_dataset("huggingartists/billy-talent")

Dataset Structure

An example of 'train' looks as follows.

This example was too long and was cropped:

{
    "text": "Look, I was gonna go easy on you\nNot to hurt your feelings\nBut I'm only going to get this one chance\nSomething's wrong, I can feel it..."
}

Data Fields

The data fields are the same among all splits.

  • text: a string feature.

Data Splits

train validation test
122 - -

'Train' can be easily divided into 'train' & 'validation' & 'test' with few lines of code:

from datasets import load_dataset, Dataset, DatasetDict
import numpy as np

datasets = load_dataset("huggingartists/billy-talent")

train_percentage = 0.9
validation_percentage = 0.07
test_percentage = 0.03

train, validation, test = np.split(datasets['train']['text'], [int(len(datasets['train']['text'])*train_percentage), int(len(datasets['train']['text'])*(train_percentage + validation_percentage))])

datasets = DatasetDict(
    {
        'train': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(train)}),
        'validation': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(validation)}),
        'test': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(test)})
    }
)
