Track Name: Constance
CONSTANCE

Verse:

She sees constant reminders

IN magazines and on the movie screens

But shes not giving in



She sees constant subscribers

Believing what they want and what they hear

But shes not giving in



She says I can't be the only one that feels this way



And in Time there's gonna be enough of us

to prove that we can be something more than this.



Chorus:

And Sometime things are said that have her thinking twice

They can be harsh but will be blessing in Disguise

And She finds strength in things she cannot compromise

So she's never giving in.



She sees constant reminders

On MTV and on the radio

But she's not giving in



She sees constant subscribers

They try to fit the mold they're being sold

But she's not giving in


She says I can't be the only one that feels this way


And in Time there's gonna be enough of us

to prove that we can be something more than this.


Chorus:

And Sometime things are said that have her thinking twice

They can be harsh but will be blessing in Disguise

And She finds strength in things she cannot compromise

So she's never giving in.


Bridge:

And what she's been thinking

Is we've got a long way to go and a long way to come

And what she believes in

Is we've got a long way to go and a long way to come.


Chorus:

And Giving in would always have her thinking twice

And giving up could be no blessing in Disguise

And She finds strength in things she cannot compromise

So she's never giving in.
Track Name: Down Low
Down Low


Verse:



She could be swept off her feet

But he has feeling he has kept discrete



But shes begun to suspect

Her charms just have no effect



He acts more friend than a lover

Kissing her cheek like her brother



He wish he could see this through

But what would they say if they knew



Chorus:

Hell have to keep it on the Down low

Keep it on the down low

Keep it on the down Low

Hell keep it on the down Low

Hell keep it on the down low

Hell keep it on the down.





Verse:



The family thinks he a friend

But they are more and he still pretends



Its getting harder to lie

He thinks it is easier to hide



Hell never have to explain

This is a life that he can maintain



He wish he could see this through

But What would they say if they knew



Chorus:

Hell have to keep it on the Down low

Keep it on the down low

Keep it on the down Low

Hell keep it on the down Low

Hell keep it on the down low

Hell keep it on the down.

Track Name: Insomnia (feat. Flobots)
Verse
I’m tossing and turning’
Can’t sleep for the life of me
I’m wondering and worrying
Will I get to sleep before to long

Come on tell me where it is and where I’ve got to find
Give me R.E.M. the doctor can’t relieve my mind

Chorus:
Get myself to sleep!
Shut eye, Shut eye, I need
I’m counting Sheep, I’m counting Sheep
Awake!
Because I can’t get to sleep

No, no I can’t get to sleep
I need my z’s, I need my z’s
I can’t Sleep No, No, No
Help my get my Z’s

Verse:
The TV is talking
Keeping me from what I need
It’s taunting and teasing
Your out of shape in need of cash,

Only $19.95 you’ll get your life on track
Satisfactions guaranteed or get your money back

Bridge rhyme
Lets go snack ina Blackberry Patch
Make Earth shake
w/a side show laugh
Why I gotta wake
to a world so whack?
Gotta goto work rat race run laps

like ants on a hill
when my sands are spilled
when I catch every grain
but my hands are filled
schedule my day
but my plans are killed
by the pledges I made that I
that I can't fulfill

this sheep wants to be shampooed
that sheep wants his weekend food
this sheep's young and he can't run
that sheep's old and he can't move

all these sheep with their stress
and tenseness
hop & a leap & my best defenses
when I rest my lenses <'>
but I can't sleep
till I get 'em all together
and collect my census

verse:
I’m tossing and turning’
Can’t sleep for the life of me
I’m wondering and worrying
Will I get to sleep before to long

Send some slumber
Put me under
So that I can Snooze

Enter Sandman,
R.E.M, man,
is what I could use.
Track Name: Propeller (neurok)
Verse:
All of my life I’ve been walking down the same road
Looking to find my path, choose a road that is narrow

The time it’s been taking, the anticipating,
Has taken it’s toll on my faith

Verse:
All of my life I’ve been walking down the same street
Looking to find my place, away from the shadows

I tighten my tendons, because I can’t keep pretending,
This hasn’t been getting me down

Chorus:
I’m starting to find out who I am,
And Breaking free from a world within,
A world, a war that I’m still fighting


Verse:
All of my life I’ve been walking down the same road,
Looking to find my home, a place I can prosper
Learning my lessons, not making concessions
because this is the way it is done.
Track Name: No More
Verse:
He quit his day job
Said, “It’s time to move on”
Because he has shit to do

He sold some things too
Buy a guitar brand new
Yeah he threw his old life away

Chorus:
He’s letting go
He’s thought it threw
He’s gonna be
ALL HE CAN

Because he don’t feel it no more
yeah he don’t feel it no more

NO MORE

Verse:
He’s on his way now
Get L.A. some how
Yeah he is living this

he’s got what he wants
Yeah he’s got what he needs
Ain’t no turning back

Because he is ready,
Willing and able
To risk it all today

The Rock and Roll Life style
It might take a while
but he’ll be breaking in


Bridge:
He played his,
Heart out,
And the crowd stared
And no one really cared

And he played on,
To the last song,
And the crowd’s gone,
But he’s still rocking on’

All he really wanted was live the dream and find a scene,
Get away from cubicles, computers, had to find a means
Away from everything he thought he had to do and had to be
All he really, All he really wanted
Track Name: Father
Verse:
My father’s a good man
Perfect by no means
Sometimes a stranger I need to know

He’s wanting to know me, Weak
But wanting, me to know
He has things to say


Chorus
A father and son can get
A Second chance, a Second chance
A father and song regret

Not taking time to talk
But we’re working it out

Verse:
He’s wanting to love me
But talking is tricky
Easier said than done today

Slowly but surely
He’s killing me softly
Tears come faster than the words

I remember holiday’s
Five years old and finger’s fixed in his
Foot prints in the snow

We’re starting to speak now
Learning the truth, the things we’ve never known
Saying the things we need to say


End:
My father’s a good man
Perfect by no means
Sometimes a stranger I want to know

Were starting to speak now
Learning the truth, the things we’ve never know.
