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

Hand To Hold 04:09
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

The Shift 03:40
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 *)

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…

Scully Said 03:47
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.

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

Corona Cay 03:22
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?

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!

Back Chat 03:51
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!

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

The Grail 04:04
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...

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
13.
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)
