Track Name: I Still Would Have Fallen
If you wish I'll forfeit my place in your history,
To start anew with a future view of what we could be,
The years spent apart were a time-wasting game,
Grew older and wiser but end up the same

Take a look at the things I've said and the nerves they touch,
The bottom line is that my only crime was loving you too much,
And maybe we never quite saw eye-to-eye,
But when love's this strong it's worth another try

You can't cheat fate so don't you try it,
'Cos you know when I saw you tonight I knew that if we had never been so close before,
I still would have fallen in love with you tonight

You loved me but you broke my heart and I fell from grace,
But I've been good and I know I should be back in my rightful place,
And, crazy though they are, I'll realise my dreams,
The green-tinted, sixties-type, summer-of-love-kind it seems

That though we've been so far apart the same star was leading us,
Down a path where hearts and souls will marry,
You are the picture that I always want to carry,
When we dance the walls will fall apart so we can start to make it so

If you wish I'll retake my place in your family,
Refrain the song, sing another verse in a major key,
And when we look back on our lives in a while,
The fairytale ending will still make us smile

You can't cheat fate so don't you try it,
I still would have fallen in love with you tonight

You can't cheat fate so don't you try it,
When I saw you I knew that if we had never been lovers before,
I still would have fallen in love with you tonight
Track Name: Hand To Hold
Julia went away somewhere far, far away from the coast
Left behind all things she loved and the things she treasured the most
And there she'll be happy
And maybe she'll marry

She could never feel special here, there was "just something wrong with the air"
And once she'd taken her first breath she left without a moment to spare
'Cos solitude's cozy
And life can be rosy

And so she said...

I must get away from here I'm suffocating I can take no more
There are so many things I've never seen I've got a whole lot to explore
I've got to do this alone, must see the world on my own
Don't need a hand to hold
Don't need a hand to hold

Julia liked to drive real fast and to feel that she had control
Didn't care much for regulations and rules that suppressed her soul
She felt she was winning
And so she left singing...

I must get away from here I'm suffocating I can take no more
There are so many things I've never seen I've got a whole lot to explore
I've got to do this alone, must see the world on my own
Don't need a hand to hold
Don't need a hand to hold

But every time she failed to smile ( She would be so unhappy yeah )
She would regret her new lifestyle ( She would be so unhappy yeah )
And she would contemplate that magic movie moments are made
When loved ones are by your side

And then she said...

Come take me away from here I'm drowning in my tears of loneliness
You must be some kind of superhero I've no fear no it will evanesce
If you will just take me home, don't let me be on my own
I need a hand to hold
I need a hand to hold

Come take me away from here I'm longing for the life I had before
You must be some kind of superhero I've no fear no, no not anymore
If you will just take me home, don't wanna be on my own
I need a hand to hold
I need a hand to hold
I need a hand to hold
I need a hand to hold
Track Name: The Shift
They think that we're so a-fucking-greeable
They always are putting us down, down
They think we're a kinda kinda badder bad
They beat us and push us around

They treat us like we ain't worth shit or spit
They think that we ain't got nothing to say
We got to pull together, try to make a stand
We got to, you know it's right

Revolution time has come
Cast your vote - You got one
Gotta make sure your voice is heard
Stand proud

(CHORUS)
This is the turnaround
We're gaining ground
We're duty bound
From the underground
What goes around comes around
This is the battle cry
Doesn't time fly
Now it's do or die
Little White Lie
If you don't try
Kiss your ass goodbye
(The Shift is coming)

(*)
Cuts and grazes, school fistfights
Pounding out our human rights
Arguments with car headlights
Lightning storms and flying kites
But it keeps us out of trouble though
At east we won't go burst your bubble though
Youth rebellion is a dangerous thing
There's a shift in power happening

They think that we're so fucking easy
They think that they can push us away
We ain't gonna stand back and take this
We're stronger, We're gonna fight

Revolution time has come
Cast your vote - You got one
Gotta make sure your voice is heard
Stand proud

(REPEAT CHORUS)

They wonder why we're so ungrateful (repeat)

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(REPEAT *)
Track Name: Nobody Like Me
Chorus
There's nobody like me for you,
Nobody gonna do what I do

Girls like you are what made me,
So I'll start by saying baby,
If you think you're gonna shape me
Well you really really betta forget it

But I think you're a super cutie,
And I gotta do my duty,
If I don't get my hands on your booty
Well I'm really really gonna regret it

(Ooh, damn funky, Rich Girl)
So you think you're something special do you?
(Ooh, damn funky, Hot Girl)
Well you know I think so too
(Ooh, damn funky, My Girl)
And I've got something better for you,
So much better than you're used to

(Repeat Chorus)

I see you out with other boys
With their flash cars and fancy toys
And they're all drinking and making noise
While I'm working on a better tomorrow

And when I get you in my bed
I'll be teaching things you ain't ever read
Getting freaky with your body, getting fresh with your head
And you really really better believe it

(Ooh, damn funky, Rich Girl)
And I'll show you something special tonight
(Ooh, damn funky, Hot Girl)
Anything you want I'll do
(Ooh, damn funky, My Girl)
Cos I've got something better for you baby,
So much better than you're used to

(Repeat Chorus)

A body like yours should not be legal,
A booty looking so good must be evil,
I promise you I'll work it for you till the morning comes
I gotta get to know you from the inside,
I'll teach you all the tricks during our first love ride,
I gotta get wit'chu, I gotta really really getcha

(Repeat Chorus)

Spoken:
Yeah. You think you're gonna find somebody like me
I hope you've got some time on your hands
You're gonna need it baby…
Track Name: Scully Said
Scully said we couldn't marry
Scully said she hadn't time
And though she's know by millions
I wish everybody knew that she was mine

Scully said she had a secret
And things that she could never tell
And if she ever confessed her love for me I would burden them as well

CHORUS
She taught me how to fly
She opened my mind
And never once did I ever doubt that loving her was better
Than living alone

Scully said that she'd forget me
There wasn't room inside her mind
When all you do is everything it's sometimes hard to even fill the time

REPEAT CHORUS

(It's a case that won't remain unsolved)
If I have my way
(I wouldn't be left out here in the cold)
If I had my way
(It's a case that won't remain unsolved)

CHORUS
She taught me how to fly
(If it's only an actress playing a role)
She opened my mind
(Then can I say heaven help my soul)
And never once did I ever doubt that loving her was better
(And bless my remote control)
Than living alone

She's all I want and better
When will I ever learn?

And I never will forget her
She's with me at every turn

Scully knows she made me happy
Scully turned on my T.V.
Track Name: The Sexy Girl and Her Mate That Fancies Me
There's cobwebs in my bed and my head and I ain't feeling right,
And I've got nothing better to do so I call her at night,
But she will only come out with her friend and I say that's okay cause I don't wanna fight,
As long as I get to see her then I'm high as a kite

But just a few minutes later my cutie is flirting with all of the other guys,
And then her friend always comes on to me and I just don't know why,
The sexy girl and her mate that fancies me

There's nothing wrong with the other girl she just isn't my type,
But my honey is just such a peach, she's juicy and ripe,
Sometimes I think that a threesome would be something I'd like to try on some drunken night,
But if I happened to mention that I think both girls would take flight

I don't mind buying the drinks if it means that I get my way with her,
But I can't get rid of her friend no matter how hard I try,
The sexy girl and her mate that fancies me

Now I have a plan I'll find a friend of my own to help me,
Then I'll be the sexy one as well...

There's cobwebs in my pants when I dance and I'm horny as hell,
And I just got some news that my brother is horny as well,
And the best part is that he has got a crush on the girl who's the bane of my life,
So now perhaps if I'm lucky I'll get me a sexy girl wife

While he keeps that girl at bay I can make my move on my baby,
And I'll do everything I can to make her fall for me, fall for me, fall for me
The sexy girl not her mate that fancied me,
The sexy girl not her mate that fancied me,
The sexy girl not her mate that fancied me
Track Name: Corona Cay
Life is like a box of chocolates,
It makes you fat and it rots your teeth,
Happiness comes only in droplets,
Try to catch the rain you're standing beneath

Sometimes you need to get away,
To live your life another way,
So follow me to my hideaway,
On Corona Cay

(Somewhere you can leave your worries) Corona Cay
(Beautiful People, no one hurries) Corona Cay
(From mountains to the sea it's perfect) Corona Cay
(You gotta come with me and see) Corona Cay

I have never been to paradise,
But sometime I get a little taste,
If you've got a little time to sacrifice,
This is your life - don't let it go to waste

I'll take you there come follow me,
The place I always wanna be,
Wild horses couldn't drag me away,
From Corona Cay

(Somewhere you can leave your worries) Corona Cay
(Beautiful People, no one hurries) Corona Cay
(From mountains to the sea it's awesome) Corona Cay
(You gotta come with me and see) Corona Cay

I'm a virtual castaway on Corona Cay
Just sitting here spending my day on Corona Cay
Won't you come on over and play on Corona Cay?
Track Name: (She's So) Bitchy
Uh. Yeah. Hey - where's that bitch gone? Hey you, bitch - get over here now!
Huh. Yeah that'd be right. Hey - I said hey fellas - lemme tell you about that bitch over there...

(Crack! Boom!) I walked into the room. I had come to party.
The posse there had got it going on.
Then from the corner a devil loomed and the whole world shook as the music boomed,
And suddenly that funky vibe was gone.

Now some girls learn to hypnotise but by the way she looked into my eyes
I could tell that she sho' nuff weren't there to dance.
She said "Even if you had the only Levis in the world,
There's no way I'd wanna get inside your pants."

She's So Bitchy (wooh, wooh, bitch, bitch) x4

Now morning came and the sun it shone. I woke up and my money was gone
And so was my reputation!
Was she from hell? Some kinda creature?
Somebody betta call me a preacher!
The bitch is back - I hope it's not for long.

She's So Bitchy
(wooh, wooh, bitch, bitch) x4
The times will come and they will go.
There is one thing that it will show.
That girl has got it in for me.
Yeah that's the truth - she's so bitchy.

Word up. So the bitchiness is ever strong.
Moving and pumping and getting down to the funky song.
Watching the cat fights - the claws with it.
B-i-t-c-h-y the girl she gotta quit it come on.
Don't take no shit from a woman that thinks she really it.
She got you with a clothes-line. You drip just like the clothes dryin'.
This ain't no false kinda fantasy. The girl's just so bitchy.

She's So Bitchy
(wooh, wooh, bitch, bitch) x4
The times will come and they will go.
There is one thing that it will show.
That girl has got it in for me.
Yeah that's the truth - she's so bitchy.

So guys you see when a bitch like that gets to you in the way that she got to me
You ain't never gonna forget it.
All you gonna have left is an empty wallet and a broken heart.
And a pain in the ass.
So remember fellas - a girl is for one night only.
But a bitch... I said a bitch... is FOR LIFE!
Track Name: Back Chat
I'm incommunicado
Nothing of value to say
I'm on too much medication today

But if I had an opinion
I'd phone in every line
Like a chat show addict just to keep me occupied

But I just can't see a future
In peddling rumors and lies
I'd be much better off doing something better with my time

You can take away my soapbox I don't mind
You won't get that crap back chat from me

Pointless communication
'Bout things that ain't really news
Are just about as important as fancy shoes

And I just can't see a future
In watching the celebrity lives
And I ain't got a clue where we'll end up if man survives

You can take away my soapbox I don't mind
You won't get that crap back chat from me

Too busy trying to save the world in my spare time
You won't get that crap back chat from me

I'm incommunicado
Nothing of value to say
So I won't say it

You can take away my soapbox I don't mind
You won't get that crap back chat from me

Too busy trying to save the world in my spare time
You won't get that crap back chat from me

Really tried to lower myself
But it's so hard to and bad for my health
So if you don't mind please do it yourself
But you won't get nothing from me

Take a moment to think what you say
And if it's pointless just throw it away
Save your breath for another day
For something that you really mean

Ra-da-da-da, Ra-da-da-da!
Track Name: Independence Day
Everybody's talking 'bout delivery networks
Bandwidth and sponsors and advertiser inserts
Everybody's talking stuff so intellectual
Are you a homefry or a metrosexual?

Everybody's talking bout net neutrality
Bio-diesel dreams becoming reality
But just for one day
I'm gonna blow all my cares away

CHORUS
I'm gonna rock out on independence day
I don't care what the FCC might say
This music's free
You don't owe a dime to me

I'm gonna rock out on independence day
No matter what the RIAA say
This music's free
You don't owe a dime to me

Everybody's talking 'bout media's future
Time shifting content, do whatever may suit ya
Everybody's talking 'bout all sorts of rumors
Creative commons and trust in consumers

Everybody's talking 'bout making a podcast
But there's non-believers who say that it won't last
Well on the 4th of July
Any haters can f*** off and die

(CHORUS)

(BREAK)

(CHORUS)

We're gonna rock out on independence day
Nobody can touch us anyway
Just you and me
We got our freedom you see
Track Name: The Grail
I keep my head upon the ground,
Where my feet were,
Well that's where I was found,
Shortly after you disposed of the only thing,
That really kept me sane,
Now I go dancing in the rain

And the clocks still tick but I don't hear them,
It's only wasted time if your body's not with mine,
I try to tell myself "It's only a phase and you'll grow out of it."
But that's bullshit

Well I will find myself

And the hungry bird of prey,
Keeps on circling, Over where I lay,
To feed on scraps and gristle,
Yeah that's all that's left of me,
Since you left me,
So give me a lobotomy

And I will find myself

And the Holy water burns as expected,
The lessons I have learned,
Mean the future will be blind,
If I keep these demons in my mind,
But I can't resist,
I need a psychoanalyst

And I will find myself

I keep my head upon the ground...
Track Name: Guardian Angel
I can almost see a way to make things right,
My philosophy has always been to shine so bright that I become the light,
And though I've tried so hard to keep myself from the harbour of your arms I'm coming back,
And nothing you can do will make me stray

CHORUS
And I will watch over you, baby that's what I'll do,
I'll keep you safe from danger,
And I will watch over you, like a cloud in the blue,
I'll be your guardian angel

If I had time to sit and play these silly games,
Like the whole human race seem to do,
I would surely become too mortal,
And life would keep me away from you, away from you,
Yes it's true, I would be too far gone

And so the only way that I can exist,
Is to live this sudden life with a twist,
I don't wanna live life pay-per-view,
So baby all I can do is watch over you

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

Girl we gotta raise this love up from the gutter,
There ain't no time to waste, not even time to st-st-stutter,
Back at my crib we can relax and that's a fact,
Raise my flag, hoisted to the max,
Freak your body till the early morning light,
I can see it in your eyes, you won't put up a fight,
But the only thing that matters to me is knowing that you'll always happy

REPEAT CHORUS AD LIB TO END
Track Name: Me, My Baby & My iPod
La la la la
La la la la

I've got friends who think I'm satisfied,
Cos I got all the finer things in life,
Got lots of cash, BMW, sense of pride,
But I'd let it go

I don't need hundreds of prized possessions,
Any bad habits or crazy obsessions,
Stealing my wealth is out of the question,
Cos I'd let it go

CHORUS
'Cos all I need is me, my baby and my iPod,
Don't care 'bout anything else,
All I need is me, my baby and my iPod,
Don't care 'bout anything else,
No No

La la la la...

I've got plasma screens and satellite,
Eat gourmet food, sip Cristal by candle-light,
Got me a mansion, Versace, a motor-bike,
But I'd let them go

And all my friends still think I'm satisfied,
But I don't mean to take them for a ride,
It's just a thing that comes from deep inside,
I'd let them go

REPEAT CHORUS

(Break)

REPEAT CHORUS

All I need is me, my baby and my iPod,
Don't care, Don't care
All I need is me, my baby and my iPod,
Don't care, Don't care

La la la la (repeat to end)
