Track Name: Puzzle People
I got a little bone to pick, a burning itch to settle my score with you.
I got a little axe to grind, if you got time to hear my hullabaloo.
And my tongue don’t have no real estate that I haven’t chewed right through.

I didn’t wanna jump the gun, you had your fun or whatever you think this is.
But I think I’m past the point of worrying about you throwing a fit.
You had one last straw to break my back, well baby this is it- What are ya doin?

I don’t want your slant, and I don’t need your spin, oh I don’t need your rant, you’re gonna do me in- Puzzle people!

You came in with a clash, a bang, a dirty game! Checkin right for the mate.
When I just wanna have a civil dialogue, you just wanna debate.
And I don’t remember asking you, but you elaborate.
Uh huh.

I don’t want your slant, and I don’t want your slide.
I don’t need your rant, don’t wanna take your side.

Puzzle people, where do you come from?
Puzzle people, you gotta trample everyone.
Prepping all your brassy know-it-alls like a loaded gun.
Puzzle people.

I don’t want your slant, and I don’t want your slide,
I don’t need your rant, don’t wanna take your side,
I don’t want your take, I don’t want your pride, hunny.
I don’t need your spin, ain’t gonna run and hide.

Puzzle people, where do you come from?
Puzzle people, gotta trample on my fun?
Prepping all your brassy know-it-alls like a loaded gun-
Puzzle people.
Track Name: Hypno Girl
Oooooh (x2)

She’s a girl who holds a world of power over me.
Like a hurricane, lady whirlwind, I am her debris.

Well it only took one look to paralyze.
And lock me in a trance I couldn’t fight.

Oooooh (x2)

I know I know I know I know I know- I just can’t let her be.
Singing in an apparition tone, she beckoned after me.

She led me like a moth into a flame,
I was drunk on every word I heard her singing.

Stop me someone- Don’t stop me.
Don’t let me- Let me- Don’t let go.
Looking in her eyes hypnotized and I can’t say “no”.

Oooooh (x2)

Stop me someone- Don’t stop me.
Don’t let me- Let me- Don’t let go.
Looking in her eyes hypnotized and I can’t say “no”.
(look into her eyes and tell her no)
Looking in her eyes hypnotized and I can’t say “no”.

Oooooh (x3)
Track Name: Crash and Learn
WHOA!

I want you to crash and burn I don’t want you to bail.
I’m being honest, being honest with you.
I don’t want you to succeed, I want you to fail.
I’m being honest, I’m being honest.

Your kind of loving always left me hanging.
That kind of hanging always left me needing love.
Another thing that always left me grieving,
Another thing that always left me grieving us.

WHOA!

I can stop defending now that you have gone away.
I’m being honest, being honest with you.
Not making up a lie to try and save face.
I’m being honest, I’m being honest.

Your kind of loving always left me hanging.
That kind of hanging always left hanging up.
That kind of living always left me dying.
That kind of living always left me biting dust.

WHOA

You can take the car and all the money in the bank.
I’m being honest, being honest with you.
You’re never stuck and now you’ve got it your way.
I’m being honest, just being honest.

And all I wanted was a love that made it.
And I’d give anything to hear you say it.
I’d cut my hand off for a chance to feel it.
Gave me your heart and then you fought to conceal it.
You promised me that you would love forever.
I didn’t know that meant you’d love me never (never!)

WHOA
Track Name: Anything At All
I don’t wanna be your looking stone
your rabbit’s foot, or your wishing bone.
Still any corridor to hold your soul---
Anything, anything at all.

Amber, jade, and sage, a clover leaf,
A copper penny, heads.

To feel your spirit, anything I’ll be- anything, anything at all.

OH!

If you ask I’ll be your rosary,
the ace of spades, hid up your sleeve.
A woven catcher for your scary dreams.
anything, anything at all.

OH!

I don’t wanna be your looking stone,
your rabbit’s foot, or your wishing bone

Still any corridor to hold your soul.
Anything, anything at all.

Anything, anything at all.
Anything, anything at all.
Track Name: Mother Cobra
Well you showed up with the ransom
handed it to the one
with her knife up to your girl’s neck

And you had to leave your weapon
The letterhead said no guns
or a knife into your girl’s neck

Mother! Mom..

You can chalk it up to a lesson
Now that you’ve had your fun
You ain’t asking any questions

Oh the legend ain’t worth testing
You’re staring right at the sun,
and the pressure is a-pressing.

Mother..
Mom
Mother..
Mom
Mother

Mom Cobra, Mother Cobra
Mom Cobra, Mother Cobra
Well she’s a Mom Cobra, Mother Cobra
Mom Cobra, Mother Cobra

Mom Cobra, Mother Cobra
Track Name: The Racket
I don’t need the racket, mama, I don’t need the noise

I’m not courtin’ ya, I’m kissin’ ya. Kissin’ ya good.
Kissin’ ya better than I probably should.
Than I probably should.

I don’t need the racket, mama, I don’t need the noise, but you better not be kissin’ up on any other boys.
Kissin’ on any other boys.

Long live emotion we’re livin’ for the moment.
Breathe in the notion we’re drinking up the potion.
ooohhhh

I’m not havin’ ya, holdin’ ya, keepin’ for good,
but I’m holdin’ ya tighter than I probably should.
Than I probably should.

I don’t need the racket mama, I don’t need the noise
But you better not be playing with any other toys.
P-p-p-playin’ with any other toys.

Long live emotion we’re living for the moment.
Breathe in the notion we’re drinking up the potion.
And kissin’ like we should.

I wanna be your sugar baby!
You be my sugar plum.
You can be my sugar lady-
or maybe I will take another one.
You know we’re playing second fiddle,
and you’re my hired gun.
But we can keep the loving if it isn’t love!

‘Cause I don’t need the racket, mama
I don’t need the noise.
Track Name: Land of Slumber
Wakin' in the morning, oh it’s storming,
blanket wrapped around my hands.

I gotta face it, another day in a life that I can hardly stand.

Then I quiver, I consider checkin’ out and calling in.
Days are brighter livin in my REM.

Life in a slumber is a different scene.
Life in a slumber, I’m gonna live in a dream.
Again, again.

Walking in the forest, I hear a chorus,
don’t know where it’s coming from.

I gotta find it, I’m right behind it,
heart is beating like a drum.

Then I see her, go to meet her, daughter from another sun.
And I know I’ll never ever want another one.

Life in a slumber, I wanna live in a dream.
Seventeen hours, till I see her again.
I’m going under, and I’m bringing’ a ring.
Life in a slumber, I’m gonna live in a dream.

Oh my darling whispers to me:
“My love, my man, I am yours”
“Oh my love, be my man.
Hold me, adore me-
I love you - it's holy-
I’ll give you what I only can.”

Life in a slumber, I wanna live in a dream.
Seventeen hours till I see her again.
I’m going under, and I’m bringing a ring.
Life in a slumber, I’m gonna live in a dream.

She holds me, adores me-
She loves me - it's holy-
She gives me what she only can.
Track Name: What Do Ya Got?
What do ya got? What are ya sellin’?
Is it something I need? How can I get it?

What’ll it do? Make me feel fine?
What’ll it do? I wanna feel something.

I wanna get high. I wanna get higher. I wanna get higher, so I don’t get low.
I wanna get high. I wanna get higher. I wanna get higher, so I don’t get low.

What do ya got? What are ya sellin’?
Will it help me to see? Will I regret it?

What’ll it do? Will make me feel strong?
What’ll it do? I wanna feel perfect.

I wanna get high. I wanna get higher. I wanna get higher, so I don’t get low.
I wanna get high. I wanna get higher. I wanna get higher, so I don’t get low.

I wanna get higher. I wanna get higher. I wanna get higher, so I don’t get low.
Track Name: When We're Free
If you’re not as perfect as you seem.
You try your best but just left feeling weak.

Take off your mask it’s all I ask, show yourself to me.
It’s true, honestly.

Give it a try and I promise that you’ll see.
lets kick up the dust and make ourselves a scene.

Take off your mask and raise your glass, high as it can be.

Would you, believe?

This life, tastes, sweeter- so much sweeter when we’re free.

When we’re free!
Track Name: Even If
So this is how it’s gonna be, down to him and down to me?

Oh if this is how it’s gotta be, I got a trick hid up my sleeve.

Even if it might’ve looked a little shaky.
And even if I may have seemed a little doomed.
You know that nothing’s ever gonna, gonna take me.
Cause even death can’t keep my heart away from you.

You got me searching all around, got me fighting through the crowd.

True, it was tough when I was out, but I’m coming for you now.

And even if my body feels a little achey.
Even if my spirit feels a little bruised.
You know that nothing’s ever gonna, gonna break me.
Cause even death can’t keep my heart away from you.

I know something you don’t know.
I know something they don’t know.
I’m gonna swing on down and take you up and off we’re gonna go.
We’re gonna go...

Even if it might’ve looked a little shaky.
And even if I may have seemed a little doomed.
You know that nothing’s ever gonna, gonna take me.
Cause even death can’t keep my heart away from you.

Even death can’t keep my heart away from you.
Even death can’t keep my heart away from you.
Track Name: She Moves
I’ll be the one, she’ll be the other part of me.
I’ll be the one, who gets to hold her tightly.
No other man, will ever have what I will have.
No other man- no other man will have her.

She moves like Johnny H’s signature.
Up and down and all around,
shakin’ what her momma gave her.
Money for the lunch box- put it in the juke box-
pulling up her white socks- letting’ down her red locks.

I love that Johnny H’s signature.
Up and down and all around,
shakin’ what her mama gave her.
Money for the lunch box- put it in the juke box-
pulling up her white socks- letting’ down her red locks.

I’ll be the one, I’m gonna carve it on a tree.
I’ll be the one, that she will never want to leave.
No other man, will ever brag what I will brag.
No other man- no other man will have her.

She moves so everybody knows -
You know you do. (You know you do, you know you do.)
Stepping on everybody’s toes.

[Instrumental Break]

She moves so everybody knows -
You know you do. (You know you do, you know you do.)
Stepping on everybody’s toes.

I’ll be the one, she’ll be the other part of me.
I’ll be the one, who gets to hold her tightly.

She moves like Johnny H’s signature.
Up and down and all around,
shakin’ what her momma gave her.
Money for the lunch box- put it in the juke box-
pulling up her white socks- letting’ down her red locks.

I love that Johnny H’s signature.
Up and down and all around,
shakin’ what her mama gave her.
Money for the lunch box- put it in the juke box-
pulling up her white socks- letting’ down her red locks.

She moves like Johnny H’s signature.
Up and down and all around,
shakin’ what her momma gave her.
Money for the lunch box- put it in the juke box-
pulling up her white socks- letting’ down her red locks.

I love that Johnny H’s signature.
I love that Johnny H’s signature.

I’ll be the one.
Track Name: Blue
Everything is blue, boy, what good would it do?
You’re everybody’s chew toy, hounds are on the loose.
When you got nothing at all, left unsaid-
and you’re running out of actions, no eyes to fall on,
when they’re only seeing red

Everything is blue, boy, time for something new-
What they say ain’t true, so, don’t you let ‘em through
when they sneak under your walls, and in your head,
and your back has left the corner, pushing ya further,
and now it’s hangin off the ledge…

You can close your eyes and you can hold on it tight, but you gotta make a move.
Let it go or put up a fight and you just don’t know what to do - ooo

ooooooo

You, can, close your eyes and you can hold on it tight, but you gotta make a move.
Let it go or put up a fight and you just don’t know what to do - ooo

ooooooo

Everything is blue, boy..
Everything is blue, boy..
Everything is blue, boy..
Everything is blue, boy..
