Track Name: Money
The sun wakes me fakes me to seem like any other
heard the news today, freedom's gonna suffer
to make better, you promised this
but I don't think you had any intention
on stopping such evil
I don't understand the world you make for you
I don't understand your destructive nature

I don't want a part in your war
but here I am it's source
slave to a perpetual machine
blindly led by gods of the truth
I receive you

So what am I suppose to think when towers fall
I guess chance just played lucky for you
and at first you didn't want to start a query
are we expected just to trust you
it's the end of all times
when the leaders undermine the follow
and fool all of them into purchasing murder

I don't want a part in your war
but here I am it's source
funding a perpetual machine
blindly led by gods of the truth
I receive you

So how are we free to pursue happiness
when we have to give up our lives just for the chance

I'd die without you.
Track Name: Sweet Satellite
Coudln't find the words to express just how I truly feel
When you look at me and you pull that smile
Forgot about the breeze, focused on your eyes,
how they hypnotize, I was lost in time
I was doing anything just to stay a while

And we sat there under that lamp post till the stars filled the sky
while in the distance, city lights
all set the scene tell me it's not a dream

I saw the sweet satellite
The moon was just right
Saw the look in your eyes
Don't say it's goodbye
I saw the sweet satellite

Our fingers must have lingered in a grasp for a while
We intertwined and waves rushed through me
Tell me all your hopes, tell me all your dreams
Just don't tell me goodbye, I want this night to just live on

I would have sat there and held you till the warmth of the sun came round
But life won't stop for our plans
Will I get to see you again?

I saw the sweet satellite
The moon was just right
Saw the look in your eyes
Don't say it's goodbye
I really need you tonight

Don't let me go
Let us just lose control
I feel in love tonight
Don't say it's goodbye
I saw the sweet satellite

Sweet Satellite
Sweet Satellite
I fell in love tonight
Don't say it's goodbye
I saw the sweet satellite.
Track Name: What Would You Do?
What would you do if I said to you
That I was crazy about you in every way?
What would you do if I promised you
That I would come around each and every day?
Would you give a puzzled look or hide behind a book
Maybe, get up and walk away

I'm not a man who could buy you luxuries
But I'll write you songs if you be with me
I'm not opposed to standing in the rain
I'd wait around just to help you see
That I'm wanting all your love
I'm the one you're dreaming of
Come on babe, say you'll be with me

There's nothing I wouldn't do just to get up next to you
Run myself breathless till I drop
Don't have a clue but there's something that you do
Keep me going, I just can't stop
My heart, it overflows
This damn is ready to blow
My loose lips gonna tell it all

Cause I've been locked inside the cage for way too long
Oh I've got something to say
I want you every day

What would you do if I dance along with you
Would you keep on grooving till the music stopped?
What would you do if I poured a drink for two
Would you care to settle and share a cup?
I got to get you home
Where we could be alone
Just free to explore possibilities

Cause I've been locked inside the cage for way too long
Oh I've got something to say
I want you every day

And I know that there's got to be a way to break free
From the bonds I've placed on myself
Can't go through life never speaking the words
Got to let my heart act on it's self
So I'm taking the steps, no restraint shall I bear
Won't hold myself back this time
I've been shown a door that only opens for me

Cause I've been locked inside the cage for way too long
Oh I've got something to say
I want you every day

What would you do if I said to you
That I was crazy about you in every way?
Track Name: Mu
Sing a song,
let your heart hum along with me
I see your eyes
let your picture come alive I'm with you
There's something to be said
but the words won't quite manifest themselves
so I sing

Come with me,
on a journey of the mind through melody
Dance and jive,
let your feeling come alive don't hold back
though the tide of uncertaintiy may cause a flood

let me sing to let it all out
cast away all my fear and doubt
I don't know, what I'd do without you

when rhythm keeps constant, it persists
moves along as a delicate wrist
it slowly shapes, the emotions flow
waves of ectasy like flakes of snow
they bury me up to my neck

let me sing to let it all out
cast away all my fear and doubt
I don't know, what I'd do without you
Track Name: Declaration (explicit lyric)
Let me show ya how we're just going to rock it out
Let me show ya how we stand way above the crowd
Ain't gonna worry 'bout playin things to get on the waves
Ain't gonna worry 'bout trying to be a slave

Well I got an idea how to change the world

Who are you to tell me how I gotta wear my clothes
I fly a flag in Bohemia and freak it blows
Television turning out people robotized
A ruler speaks and it seems our hands our tied

Well I got an idea how to change the world
Don't need you telling me how to live my life
I'm gonna do it

Big O' banks giving money to the silver tounges
like to hang 'em up by the neck on the rung
While they try to climb that corporate ladder
I'll make my money by a way that really matters

Well I got an idea how to change the world
Don't need you telling me how to live my life
I'm gonna do it my way

Don't care about the rules you gonna right
Your regulations just seem down right dirty
Just go ahead and pass all your fucking laws
initiative to abide is slighty flawed

Well I got an idea how to change the world
Don't need you telling me how to live my life
I'm gonna do it my way
