Track Name: Party At Bedford
"Party at Bedford"


Just got home from my 9 to 5

Money is scarce but I’m getting by

In the Big Apple, beasts run so free

And when you ain’t looking you’ll get chewed up easily

Cash rules everything around me

But it don't rule me


Pre Chorus

I don’t care o no no

I know where I gotta go

Got dressed up looking kinda dope

It’s time to go

Put on a show


Chorus

Pardon me, my dude

Please get out of the way

I got to get to Bedford Ave

Hipsters run these streets

There parties can’t be beat

I gotta get off at Bedford Avenue


Second Verse

O Say can’t you see

No where in U.S. is there a party

Like the one where I’m at

So go ahead and run tell that

People taking things that make them not remember a thing

(Don’t I have class in the morning?)

Pre Chorus

Come with me

Let’s get funky

Keep on dancing to the dope beats

Keep on dancing

It’s time to go

To put on a show

Chorus

Pardon me, my dude

Please get out of the way

I got to get to Bedford Ave

Hipsters run these streets

There parties can’t be beat

I gotta get off at Bedford Avenue

Bridge

Chorus
Track Name: BiPolar
"BiPolar"

I'm on a free way

Wrong side of the road

I’m taking chances

Will I lose control?

The urge is climbing

I don’t know where’s my soul

Hard to concentrate

When it’s time to roll



Pre-Chorus

You think I’m crazy baby

But, I’m not ordinary

You think it’s easy to behave

It’s not that simple



Chorus

I’m sick, I’m well, oh what the hell

It bothers you oh I can tell

My mind’s over there and over here

I’m bipolar, roller-coaster


Second verse

There overrated

These pills I gotta take

I’m going crazy need help for god’s sake

Your love can help me break through these evil gates

Peace of mind will come

I know it’s my fate



Pre-Chorus

You think I’m crazy baby

But, I’m not ordinary

You think it’s easy to behave

It’s not that simple



Chorus

I’m sick, I’m well, oh what the hell

It bothers you oh I can tell

My mind’s over there and over here

I’m bipolar, roller-coaster


Bridge

Oh, Who are you?

I don’t know who you are

No, wait, I know who you are
You’re not going to control me anymore


Chorus

I’m sick, I’m well, oh what the hell

It bothers you oh I can tell

My mind’s over there and over here

I’m bipolar, roller-coaster 3x
Track Name: Heavy
"Heavy"

As midnight stars poke holes in the sky

I lay down in my bed with tears in my eyes

Tonight, I don't wanna go to sleep

Without the warmth of my baby

Pre Chorus

Can you take me back in time?

Before I committed the crime

Those electric fingers where made for my skin

You said We'd always be one. Have we become undone?

I will sing, yes I will sing...

Chorus

About the time you took my out the lonely cold

And you'd always be down for whatever

Bonnie and Clyde died by each other's side, boy I want to be with you forever

I'm calling the bluff in your foolish pride

Don't you wanna stand next to my fire

Those ugly words don't mean a thing to me now

Cause you know that only I

Can give it to you Heavy

Second verse

What's this I hear?

You don't want me now

Well one thing I know is you been running around

Arguing on down the street

While people stare at you and me

Make up running down my face

Only God knows what's our fate.

Pre Chorus

O where is the light

That I can't seem to find

It's the bridge, between my heart and my mind

The darkness and the light

Forever in a fight

I will sing, yes I will sing...

Chorus

About the time you took my out the lonely cold

And you'd always be down for whatever

Bonnie and Clyde died by each other's side, boy I want to be with you forever

I'm calling the bluff in your foolish pride

Don't you wanna stand next to my fire

Those ugly words don't mean a thing to me now

Cause you know that only I

Can give it to you Heavy

Bridge

Will you give me, all of your love

With no guarantee that I'd give it all back to you

Give it to me Heavy

Post Bridge

I will sing, I will sing, I will sing x2

Chorus

About the time you took my out the lonely cold

And you'd always be down for whatever

Bonnie and Clyde died by each other's side, boy I want to be with you forever

I'm calling the bluff in your foolish pride

Don't you wanna stand next to my fire

Those ugly words don't mean a thing to me now

Cause you know that only I

Can give it to you x3

Give to you heavy
Track Name: Devil's Advocate
"Devil's Advocate"

Stop telling me what to do
cause' that's not going down
I am a woman but I'm more of a man than you are

Pre Chorus

You went off course
Now you wanna get back in the race
But, I can't wait for you
to pack your shit and go away
So, you're the cool kid. It's cool kid. Don't you know posers, don't move

Chorus
Strike a pose, don't move
Let me do what I have to do
I'm moving on, Don't hold me back
You truly are the devil's advocate

Second Verse

You try to suck me into
Your place of darkness
Light years ahead of you and I haven't even started

Pre Chorus
You went off course
Now you want to take my place
Here's what you can do
Take your ego balloon and fly away

You think I need you. You're crazy. Don't you know posers, don't move

Chorus
Strike a pose, don't move
Let me do what I have to do
I'm moving on, Don't hold me back
You truly are the devil's advocate

Bridge
Oh woahs 4X

Post Bridge

Strike a pose, don't move
Let me do what I have to do
I'm moving on, Don't hold me back
You truly are the devil's...

Chorus

Strike a pose, don't move
Let me do what I have to do
I'm moving on, Don't hold me back
You truly are the devil's advocate
Track Name: Healing
"Healing"

The last time I’ve seen you, you were laying on the street

Begging for food to eat

It seems now you’re doing well

I remember when you use to

tell me, you told me

Chorus

Don’t push me

Cause I’m off the edge

And I feel the pressure now

I can’t go further down

Can’t you see?

I’m already dead

I need a savior now

Love needs to make a sound

Post Chorus

Woah x2

Ooh x2


This world has become so numb

To the wounds we give ourselves

Don’t have to be six feet under to be in hell

The light at the end of the tunnel shines so bright and well

But it’s path is narrow so...



Chorus

Don’t push me

Cause I’m off the edge

And I feel the pressure now

I can’t go further down

Can’t you see?

I’m already dead

I need a savior now

Love needs to make a sound


Bridge

Save us love we want to be free

Earthquakes and bombs won’t shake me

They won’t shake me


Chorus

Don’t push me

Cause I’m off the edge

And I feel the pressure now

I can’t go further down

Can’t you see?

I’m already dead

I need a savior now

Love needs to make a sound
Track Name: The Rent Is Still Too Damn High
"The Rent Is Still Too Damn High"


Woah x4

Rent is still too damn high

There's a myth about the city

That's it's glamorous and pretty

That it's lights and broadway

But they don't point the camera our way

Pre chorus

I can't help it but damn I'm pissed off

When I walk down the street it don't look like a side walk

Scale of justice tipped too far right

No breakfast lunch and dinner tonight

Chorus

Cause the rent is still too damn high

I said the rent is still too damn high x2

Post Chorus

My wallet looks just like a cave, why do you think that I'm a slave baby?

Woah x4

Second Verse

But don't worry honey

If your not making lots of money

It doesn't matter what they say

Things will start going our way

There's more of us than them

Oh can't you see

Gonna keep yelling till they hear me

Come sing with me the rent is too damn high

Wanna be Robin Hood I ain't gonna lie

Chorus

Cause the rent is still too damn high

I said the rent is still too damn high x2

Post Chorus

My wallet looks just like a cave, why do you think that I'm a slave baby?

Bridge

I said The Rent Is Still Too Damn High x4

(I said The Rent Is Still Too Damn High...O Baby...I said The Rent Is Still Too Damn High)

I said The Rent Is Still Too Damn High x8
