Track Name: Electrockpopmusica
It's almost ten years later
and I'm still here
Being brilliant, making noise
Whichever it is you hear
People everywhere, all over the globe
Are Expressheads, yeah
But I still can't escape
"What kind of music do you make?"
It's always hammered in my ear…

…does that answer your question?

I hear a feeling inside,
I hear a musical light,
A soundscape in my brain
So I turn it around, convert it to sound
Hoping all is not in vain
Still people must know
Which way should they go
Which box should they check?
Shoeboxing this or that
Such a disabling stat
A label hung around their neck…

…does that answer your question?


Oh why do we feel the need
to limit ourselves?
Placing people and things into tiny boxes
It is what it is, they are what they are
Whatever you need to call it
If it's making you feel something
Then I don't care, just check the box marked
"Mission Accomplished"
"Mission Accomplished"
My work is done here...

Track Name: Sometimes I Get High (featuring Cazwell)
Doesn't have to be a weekend
Or a holiday, see?
Any day of the week
And it's working for me
It's The Alphabet for body and mind
Always setting me free
T, K, X or G
Yeah, they're working for me

Uno, dos, três, quatro
Lick it up, lick it up
Sometimes I get high
Uno, dos, três, quatro
Lick it up, lick it
Sometimes I get high
This is how I ride
Okay

Some days can be toxic
Escape is the key
My recipe will cure you
Cuz it's working for me
The Alphabet Diet
Try it, you'll see
You'll be rolling in no time
Oh yeah, that's working for me

Uno, dos, três, quatro
Lick it up, lick it up
Sometimes I get high
Uno, dos, três, quatro
Lick it up, lick it
Sometimes I get high
This is how I ride
Okay

Powder
Tablet
Or liquid
Or maybe all three
We can take our clothes off
Oh yeah, that's working for me

Sometimes I get high
Okay
Okay okay
Sometimes I get high

This is how I ride
Sometimes I get high
This is how I ride
Sometimes I get high
Uno, dos, três, quatro
Lick it up, lick it up
Sometimes I get high
Uno, dos, três, quatro
Lick it up, lick it up
Sometimes I get high
This is how I ride
Okay
Track Name: Black Logic (Bite The Hand That Feeds)
you came to me out of nowhere
you and your eyes and their passion plea
I had little left, the scars left behind
you never noticed, I'll bet
with us, I thought the world was through
crashed, fallen down
til we were black & blue
for this, I let you inside
as my equal, unknowing
you were on the wrong side

and it must have been sometime round then that you knew
your deception was gold and I fell for it, through & through
your black logic, it makes no sense and I can't understand
it bites the hand that feeds and you suffer at its command

you must be out of your head
to play me that way and say what you said
I was good to you
the one who would stay, the one to hold on to
don't think I'll ever forget
how quickly you changed, once your needs were met
oh, I'm not letting this go
I guarantee you, my love, you'll reap what you sow

what goes round, it comes round, don'tcha know
bite the hand that feeds and down to the ground you go
your black logic is senseless, ludicrous & ill-advised
it will bury you quicker with all of your silly lies

if I were you I'd think twice
playing games with ones heart & ones mind, pay a price
black logic condemns you
karma's a bitch and she doesn't play nice

it's coming round
coming round, don'tcha know
bite the hand that feeds
bite the hand that feeds
you will know
you will know
bite the hand that feeds
bite the hand that feeds

goes round, comes round
goes round, comes round
you will know
bite the hand that feeds
bite the hand that feeds
to the ground, to the ground you go
your black logic is senseless, and stupid,
it's senseless, it's stupid
your senseless, so stupid
goes round, comes round
goes round, comes round
you will know
bite the hand that feeds
bite the hand that feeds
to the ground, to the ground you go
your black logic is senseless, and stupid,
it's senseless, it's stupid
your senseless, so stupid
Track Name: Burn In Many Colors (featuring Jason Gigliotti)
Oh yeah

Once upon a time
I had a dream
The fires within me had grown cold
So I went in search of a spark
And on my journey
I was met by countless souls
Ablaze
Each one, igniting the world
All burning in many different colors

We all burn...
We all burn...
Oh yeah
Track Name: Never Ever Forever
I never thought I'd see
The day you meant that much to me
You take my heart
Then you take my hand
I thought you'd be the one
To understand

I know me
I know me
I know me
Never ever never ever
Never ever never ever
Never
Ever
Ever
Never ever
Forever...

I remember how this feels
Alone inside
And every word unreal
I cheat on you
Then you cheat on me
I lie to you and that's
How our "forever" will be

How can I make you see?
This wasn't meant to be
And how every word of this
Is killing me
(Just you wait and see)

Never
Ever
Ever
Never ever
Forever...

Never ever forever...

You take my heart
Then you take my hand
Then you take my soul
And I am no more

Never ever never ever
Never ever never ever
Never
Ever
Ever
Oh no
You ruined it
You took it all and
Made it go away
You made it go away

You made it go away
It's all your fault
You made it go away
It's all gone away
We had it all
But now it's gone
Cause you made it go away
Boo hoo hoo
Track Name: There Must Be Something More We Can Do
When did it all begin
To change into something
I can't even recognize
This place that I'm in
Where bad is not only good
It's often rewarded
The strong prey upon the weak
And riches are hoarded

It's gone from bad to worse
You and I included

There must be something
Something more we can do
Find the answers (save the world)
Stop the madness (save the world)
Say "I love you" (save ourselves)

I just don't know how to live
In a world without truth
Where goodness means the least
And you are not you
It's a race to the finish line
Fame, Power & Wealth

But so much is left behind
My sanity, my self
Every wish that I had for us
Is better left upon the shelf

There must be something
Something more we can do
Find the answers (save the world)
Stop the madness (save the world)
Say "I love you" (save ourselves)

There must be something more we can do…

There must be something more we can do
(save the world)
There must be something more we can do
(save ourselves)
There must be something more we can do

Track Name: Once In A Lifetime
Indemnity
Will never be
Like the coat you wear
Or the cross you bear
Sovereignty
Always a fantasy
A dream you tow
That you will never know
Nobility
Is never free
And is sacrificed
To duplicity
Ideology
Modified at will
Fashions ignorance
And you have no defense

Above all this
Disheartened risk
A heart may grow
Attempt to know
Why it beats so strong
Propelling you along
A predestined way
Come what may
Just once in
A lifetime
Your heart may rise
Above the sordid skies
Beyond the night
Taking flight
Once in a lifetime
Your heart may find the light

Just once in
A lifetime
Your heart may rise
Above the sordid skies
Beyond the night
Taking flight
Once in a lifetime
You may find the light

Then indemnity
Will be guaranteed
While your sovereignty
Will come naturally
As your noble ways
For all your days
Are cherished in kind
And faith you will find
Envelops all you know
With an afterglow
Spreading everyplace
Throughout time and space
Your heart just might
Set things right
Once in a lifetime
You may find the light
