LYRICS
Nowhere AZ
Theres a bus stop, in a rare spot in the middle of a barren empty desert where it's too hot, for even a cold blooded creature to live!

Saddle up I think it's time to find a new ride. Better hurry if you wanna make it alive. The sign says the greyhound ain't been here for years!

But somehow all these dreams and all these wishes, always seem to bring me back to here. No wind in the air. Something about a sense of reason, should've brought about a better season or, am I getting nowhere?

The economies slow, but I've been making my way. Put the key to the old's, it's been a long long day. almost home, in second gear the tires hit the pavement go POP POP POP POP!

No explanation no, but I best be hasting the day. What about these hottie hottie molten lava streets in my way. But its almost Autumn right? And this gets over right? I'm over certain that the water makes it colder right? I might get through this right? But if I'm wrong! One more reason to sing this song.

But somehow all these dreams and all these wishes, always seem to bring me back to here. No wind in the air. Something about a sense of reason, should've brought about a better season

Oooh oooh, gotta rig it up myself, cause I've been standing on thin air, yea yea yea. My solitude can find me I made a better bet this time, cause I've been betting on nowhere.

Light Em Up
Life is the biggest bitch when you live at the bottom. You ain’t even seeing them evil demons I’ve got em. I thought em up in my sleep, you can call it insomnia. You’re probably catching your sleep if my words ain’t catching on to ya. Even when vibes are high, I still feel a little low. Ain’t a thing that can kill the pain, make me feel no more. Pockets got the munchies for money I feed em how I can. Getting dollars working harder than the blue collar man. Holler at me man, try to get the best of me. See powerful and insane is a dangerous recipe. One half of me is a saint the rest of a sinner. I light em up to roast them I eat em up for dinner.

Light em up, light em up, light em all up. Life’s so deep you can’t touch the bottom. I can find, you know that I can fly, there’s a whole new world up in the upper end. So light em up, light em up, light em all up. Life’s so deep you can’t touch the bottom. I can find, you know that I can fly, it’ll make perfect sense in the end.

Light em up, light em up, flick your Bic to the air. It’s a riot, something catch on fire tonight, we don’t care. Though my life is a mess I’m always dressed in the best wear. Early I get passing the finish line, the rest stare. It ain’t fair the situation that I was given. When I was child, I barely ha a pot to piss in. Ears are glued to the music that’s why I never listen. Swag is so bright it shines ay night, it glistens. I’m shining like a diamond, what up?! Take a seat. Now strap your seatbelt tight, alright, and feel the beat. From your feet, all the way to your gut. You better duck cause we’re about to run amuck, and light em up.

Light em up, light em up, light em all up. Life’s so deep you can’t touch the bottom. I can find, you know that I can fly, there’s a whole new world up in the upper end. So light em up, light em up, light em all up. Life’s so deep you can’t touch the bottom. I can find, you know that I can fly, it’ll make perfect sense in the end.

Last Time
Take it slow, there’s a whole new world out there waiting just for you. And I know, that playing for keeps can be tough when you’re playing for two. So you go now, and I’m sorry for being so true. Cause I’m going to miss you. I’m going to miss you. I’m going to miss you so bad

But it’s the last time I tell you goodbye. No more emotion, no more tears. I got a reason for the leaving think I need need it. One last time after all these years. It’s the last time I tell you goodbye. No more emotion, no more tears. I got a reason for the leaving think I need it. One last time for all these years.

Did you know, the harder I tried to be close to you further you go. And it’s so, disturbing how bad I could try yet you’d not even know. So you go now, and I’m sorry for getting so close. Cause I’m going to miss you. I’m going to miss you. I’m going to miss you so bad

But it’s the last time I tell you goodbye. No more emotion, no more tears. I got a reason for the leaving think I need need it. One last time after all these years. It’s the last time I tell you goodbye. No more emotion, no more tears. I got a reason for the leaving think I need it. One last time for all these years.

Finally Home
The time has come, I can’t hide from, the fact that I can’t wait. See there’s a place where I can go and I can easily escape. Where the sun is always shining and when it’s dark the lights come out. Oh, California how I love ya, you’re all I’m thinking ‘bout. It’s a beautiful early morning. All the birds are singing songs. I close my eyes for moments and then I drift until I’m gone. Now if I give life permission, it’ll get the best of me. So I pay it no attention as I sing a melody.

Finally I’m home. Finally I’m home. Don’t care if I’m alone. Finally I’m home.

Palm trees and a calm breeze greet me. Melodies ringing in my ear so sweetly. See the Cali girls walking around in bikinis. The Cali boys huffing and o’ puffing on sweet leaf. To go far you don’t really need a nice car. Take it easy or you’re going to make life hard. Got to keep my shades on or I’ll go blind. In Cali never ask me how I’m doing, I’m fine. Living in a cloud of smoke, swimming in wine. Got the ocean to myself now it’s all mine. I’m a star on the boulevard, go shine. And if I leave I’m coming back a hundred more times.

Finally I’m home. Finally I’m home. Don’t care if I’m alone. Finally I’m home.

A Lot Less Innocent
Lyrics coming soon!
Daddy's Dreams
She’s standing by herself in an empty isle in a downtown shopping mall. She’s got it all planned out, the world is on her side she’s got it all. She’s living someone’s dream but she’s not quite sure if this is what she wants.

She’s sailing on a degree took six years of nothing to achieve. You’re living someone’s dream, you’re living someone’s dream.

And all I wanna know if when does this all end? I’m working so hard just to make my way so I can make my way again. And all I wanna know is whats in it for me. Cause if I just stop now I’m giving up but if I don’t I’m giving in. You might as well just chalk it up to how it seems, I said your living your daddy’s dreams.

He never thought that he was good enough to make the high school team, but daddy knows the coach and boys will be boys think he pulled some strings. Friday night up come the lights open the gates in come the crowd. With mom and dad so proud is it too late to back out right now?

Ya get the chance to make that play that daddy missed at seventeen. You’re living someone’s dream, you’re living someone’s dream.

And all I wanna know if when does this all end? I’m working so hard just to make my way so I can make my way again. And all I wanna know is whats in it for me. Cause if I just stop now I’m giving up but if I don’t I’m giving in. You might as well just chalk it up to how it seems, I said your living your daddy’s dreams.

He’s rocking on his chair reflection on the ones that he will leave. With one child’s later firm the other made it to the major leagues. He often doubts himself although he did the best with what he had. Another promise fulfilled left by his old man.

I only hope I showed them all that they could be. I just hope my babies have it better than me.

And all I wanna know if when does this all end? I’m working so hard just to make my way so I can make my way again. And all I wanna know is whats in it for me. Cause if I just stop now I’m giving up but if I don’t I’m giving in. You might as well just chalk it up to how it seems, I said your living your daddy’s dreams.

Can You Feel It Too?
Each time I look into your eyes. Better off to look away but it pains me to be the least surprised. I will never buy into their lies. Truth’s going to set you free but never going to never going to say goodbye. Take me on this rollercoaster, oh. Got to strap me down inside, going to be one hell of a ride. You think you got the best of me although. My stupid and stubborn pride will go you know that,

I’ve never been a fan of home interrogation, but I think I deserve a little explanation. So tell me baby exactly what I’m supposed to do. What am I supposed to do?

Oooh, can you feel it too? Oh girl you know that it’s true and you know it’s true. You know it’s true baby. Oooh, can you feel it too? Oh girl you know that it’s true and you know it’s true.

Cause I’ve been tripping out, I’m breaking down just thinking about a world without you. I don’t want to be negative but I’m beginning to doubt you. Leave me now and let me know it’s all just a game. You’ve been just one in the same. I’ve got nobody to blame but what a bout all those hickeys on your neck, I know that’s just a bruise right, got nothing to prove right? All those nights that you never came home, been such a late night, why shouldn’t I put up a fight.

I’ve never been a fan of home interrogation, but I think I deserve a little explanation. So tell me baby exactly what I’m supposed to do. What am I supposed to do?

Oooh, can you feel it too? Oh girl you know that it’s true and you know it’s true. You know it’s true baby. Oooh, can you feel it too? Oh girl you know that it’s true and you know it’s true.

Want to leave but I can’t, love but I won’t. My heart’s caving in but I say don’t fall into her trap, that’s what she’s after. Loving me the best and there eat don’t matter. Oh, she’s never going to let me go. Nobody knows love like she knows. Calling me repeatedly, mute my ring tone. Just another voicemail left on my phone. Going to a party on the far east coast. Party it up with a glass we toast. Must have been traveling at least six hours and now she’s here just to give me flowers. Homies looking at her like what the— She’s looking at me screaming I love ya, but what can I do with a woman so true to me. Being true’s kind of new to me.

Repeat Chorus

Uh Oh!
You and me we’ve got a bad reputation. You see we never keep our hands to ourselves. It seems to be we’re guilty of accusations for public show and tell. Oh well that’s fine. Maybe we just lose control of our senses. Or maybe we tend to forget where we are. Maybe you just love the public’s attention them watching you from a far. So, one more and I’ll be on my way. One more X-rated PDA. One more so I can finally say ‘You’re my favorite mistake’.

Uh Oh! Anyway you want to. Uh Oh! Baby read my mind. Uh Oh! Maybe you could stay so we could Uh Oh all the time. Uh Oh! Anyway you want to. Uh Oh! Baby read my mind. Uh Oh! Maybe you could stay so we could Uh Oh all the time.

No one ever said this love should be private, and no you shouldn’t keep your hands to yourself. Let them stare at you and if you don’t like it you make it so hard to tell. So, one more and I’ll be on my way. One more X-rated PDA. One more so I can finally say ‘You’re my favorite mistake’.

Uh Oh! Anyway you want to. Uh Oh! Baby read my mind. Uh Oh! Maybe you could stay so we could Uh Oh all the time. Uh Oh! Anyway you want to. Uh Oh! Baby read my mind. Uh Oh! Maybe you could stay so we could Uh Oh all the time.

Unkind
I’m assuming that you’ve learned your lesson. I’m o’ hope that you’ll know better next time. I’m o’ hope that you won’t make those same mistakes again, you must be out of your mind. Head em up and dead in their tracks, split em up and never look back. Eat em up and spit em out it’ll make up for the value you lack. Better bet you’ll make up your time, live it up it’s all the worth the while, cause after all…

Love can be so unkind, and when you least expect your world can turn on a dime. In the worst damn way it’s more than another rhyme. It’s just a fact of life that love can be so unkind.

Maybe you’re in love with satisfaction. Better off if you can fall in line. Cause baby you could start a chain reaction, one thing at a time. Head em up and dead in their tracks, split em up and never look back. Eat em up and spit em out it’ll make up for the value you lack. Better bet you’ll make up your time, live it up it’s all the worth the while, cause after all…

Love can be so unkind, and when you least expect your world can turn on a dime. In the worst damn way it’s more than another rhyme. It’s just a fact of life that love can be so unkind.

All the things I love seem to slip away. No matter how bad I want them they don’t want to stay. So i pour myself a shot light a cigarette. Don’t want to remember, why can’t I just forget. But everything’s okay as long as the music plays. Life’s is cruel only don’t learn from mistakes. Got to pick myself up overtime I fall. Cause after all…

Love can be so unkind, and when you least expect your world can turn on a dime. In the worst damn way it’s more than another rhyme. It’s just a fact of life that love can be so unkind.

I Don't Remember
I kinda laugh myself to sleep, just by the thoughts you think you know a lot ‘bout me but you’re asking more ‘bout who I was before, but I don’t remember a thing. Its funny how I act this way, I’ve got a lot to say, but up until that day that you walked on in and let my life begin, no I don’t remember, no I don’t remember a-

Things seem so unclear before your debut. Its like time didn’t exist until I met you. So don’t ask me who I was before cause I don’t remember no I don’t remember a thing.

I graduated my playpen, I went to school and then, I had a few girlfriends that I can’t recall, it doesn’t matter at all cause I don’t remember a thing. It’s almost like you read my book and then you wrote the hook and made it hard to look before chapter ten, cause thats when you came in and let my life begin before I don’t remember no I don’t remember a-

Things seem so unclear before your debut. Its like time didn’t exist until I met you. So don’t ask me who I was before cause I don’t remember no I don’t remember a thing.

And I know, that if I can’t recall it’s not worth memory and so, as I grow, I learn the greatest parts are when you’re next to me. But leave me now and I’m treading back to that same old lifeless story that I can’t remember, no I don’t remember a-

Things seem so unclear before your debut. Its like time didn’t exist until I met you. So don’t ask me who I was before cause I don’t remember no I don’t remember a thing.

The Motion
You tell me that you love and you never want me to say goodbye. But it seems like every other day I’m hearing rumors about some other guy. Ooh, I know I’ll never be your first love, and now I’ll probably never be your last. Because I stole from a dance floor, now it’s finally taking you back. Ooh, cause you know cause you know I said,

It’s all about the motion, got to keep it moving baby. Not stuck in one place for the rest of your life. It’s all about the motion you’re coming you’re going. You need me leave me it’s all just a dance in your eyes.

I wish that I could keep you safe and warm with me all of the time, but it seems every other day you’ve got excuses to go out for the night. Ooh, well maybe I’m just getting boring, or you’d just rather go out alone. So baby, shake on the dance floor knowing I’ll be lying awake at home. Ooh, cause you know cause uoi know I said,

It’s all about the motion, got to keep it moving baby. Not stuck in one place for the rest of your life. It’s all about the motion you’re coming you’re going. You need me leave me it’s all just a dance in your eyes.

But maybe someday soon, when the rhythm gets stale and your bones get to brittle to move. Yeah maybe someday soon, you’ll believe all these lies that I’m telling you now.

It’s all about the motion, got to keep it moving baby. Not stuck in one place for the rest of your life. It’s all about the motion you’re coming you’re going. You need me leave me it’s all just a dance in your eyes.

Without A Fight
Don’t take my kindness as sign of weakness. Walking over me’s walking on glass. I keep it in before I got to let it all out. I’m a storm and you’re right in my path. They’ve got my back against the wall, not a worry or a care at all, but I hope they know I hope they know,

I won’t go down without a fight. I won’t go down without a fight. Got to stand up for what is right, and I won’t go down without a fight. I won’t go down without a fight.

Don’t tell me it’s over cause its just beginning. The beast is now awake inside. It has no mercy and it has no boundaries. Oh, you can but you can never hide. And if I fall I’ll get back up. I’ve got the will I’ve got the guts. But I hope they know I hope they know,

I won’t go down without a fight. I won’t go down without a fight. Got to stand up for what is right, and I won’t go down without a fight. I won’t go down without a fight.

Summertime
Waking up early in the morning to the sun. Homies and I readjust our minds for some fun. Perfect weather for the outdoor activity. Summer’s got me so high I’m defying gravity. I’d rather hang out with the homeboys than the homegirls they are the closest to understanding my strange world. We’re always having fun, never does a bummer some. Drunk mumbling, stumbling infant of everyone. Ganja growing in the summertime, it’s no wonder why the air around me’s always smelling fine. Long walks water parks, throwing parties, shooting darts. Outside night time chatting laughing in the dark.

Summertime’s for the memories. We live our lives with style and ease. Ganja and strong Tequila in the breeze. That’s why I, I thank Jah for the summertime memories.

On our way up to the mountains on a camping trip. Driver’s so high steering wheel he tightly grips. Whole trunk full to carry bare essentials. I always have a bandana wrapped around my skull. We’re always having such a good time. Forever lasting friendships are a gold mine. Camp fire’s burning so fine, I’m looking up at the sky, nothing quite like a summer night.

Summertime’s for the memories. We live our lives with style and ease. Ganja and strong Tequila in the breeze. That’s why I, I thank Jah for the summertime memories.

Nothing on my mind but the summertime, nothing on my mind but the summertime baby. Nothing on my mind but the summertime, nothing on my mind but the summertime baby.

Waking up early in the morning to the sun. Camping trip is over, overloaded on the fun. While I wake and bake all the way back into town, I know I’m so high I will never come down. I’m gone on my summertime vacation and probably ain’t coming back so don’t be waiting. Cause you’ll be waiting for a very long time. I’m off to see the whole world cause it’s all mine.

Summertime’s for the memories. We live our lives with style and ease. Ganja and strong Tequila in the breeze. That’s why I, I thank Jah for the summertime memories.

Nothing on my mind but the summertime, nothing on my mind but the summertime baby. Nothing on my mind but the summertime, nothing on my mind but the summertime baby.
