Track Name: Going To Miami
Woke up lonely this morning
Got no reason to be
The city got me like a prisoner
I gotta get me set free

I'm going to Miami
I gotta get away
The sea and the sunshine
Miami FLA

I got no job to hold me
I got no money i know
Don't you try to talk me down
My cool is about to blow

I'm going to Miami
I gotta get away
The sea and the sunshine
Miami FLA

I got the blues most everyday
They go around in my head
This city livin' ain't got no soul
One day you'll find me dead

I'm going to Miami
I gotta get away
The sea and the sunshine
Miami FLA

Track Name: Listening To Leon
Never been much for black leather
Always been more about the suede
I don't mind an old pair of corduroys
Leave the tight pants for the stage

I don't need to possess you or profit
From your insecurities
I got enough of my own
I'll be shuffling on a city street
Listening to Leon

Shootout on the headphones
Grooving on the uptown 6
The girls used to get shy when I pass by
Guess I'm losing all my tricks

Being older and layin back
Ain't really my style
So let's hit the club tonight
You be my Pisces Apple Lady
Listening to Leon

I'll see u on the weekend
Hanging with the kid
Talk about the groove on Tightrope
And the vintage flares u just bid

We'll take a little step away
From this moment of time
And get swept away
On a Dixie Lullaby
Listening to Leon

Track Name: Don't Mess With The Girl From Texas
Had a wild night in Waco
With a brown eyed girl from Abilene
She was dancing to some Tony Joe
Shaking like a tambourine
So you think you might get lucky boy
By the look way she looks you in the eye
But if you think you got her under your control
Man you don't know rock n roll

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and round

She got sunshine in her eyes
She got full moons every night
Whiskey drinking start a fight
Ain’t no preacher set her right

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and roun

She got green grass growing high
Cotton fields and lullabies
Country strong and city wise
Honky tonks and starry skies

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and roun

She got oil men back at home
Making dates down in San Antone
Send you packing for the railroad
She gonna ditch ya at the Alamo

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and round

Track Name: Raised On Rock 'N' Roll
I was born on the Rolling Stones
Van Morrison's Domino
I was raised on raised on rock n roll

Jimmy Page and my air guitar
Ziggy Stardust and the spiders from Mars
I was raised on raised on rock n roll

Left the city for the Mississippi blues
Left the job for blue suede shoes
I was raised on raised on rock n roll

Fly like an eagle you can't hold me down
I play my 12 bar blues from town to town
I was raised on raised on rock n roll

Revolution and Two of Us
Lucy in the sky and the Walrus
Sign of the Times and November Rain
Southern Man and the Hurricane

She like to turn her Jimi up to 10
Spin Electric Ladyland again
She was raised on raised on rock n roll

Judy Blue Eyes looking straight through you
And Do u Feel Like We Do
She raised on raised on rock n roll

Revolution and Two of Us
Lucy in the sky and the Walrus
Sign of the Times and November Rain
Southern Man and the Hurricane

We gonna rage in the midnight hour
Two lovers rise like a tower of power
We were raised on raised on rock n roll

Nobody ever gonna hold us down
We got it going on we'll take this town
We were raised on raised on rock n roll

Revolution and Two of Us
Lucy in the sky and the Walrus
Sign of the Times and November Rain
Southern Man and the Hurricane

Track Name: Electrified
Something heavy going down
You can feel it all around
Started out just once or twice
Now it's fire melting ice
Keep confessions to yourself
Try to protect mental health
Like a rollercoaster ride
This is love electrified

He's the one you heard about
Momma warns you daddy shoutszuu
He's the boy across the tracks
Late at night he's coming back
Got the fire he's got the spice
Got the bad he's got the nice
Lightning bolt and rod collide
This is love electrified

Hear him on the midnight prowl
When you whisper he will howl
And the moon is full and white
And the world is out of sight
No resistance to the charm
Disconnect the smoke alarm
No one gets deeper inside
This is love electrified

Track Name: Workingman 99
The world is running out of precious time
You pushed me over the thin red line
I had enough of making minimum wage hey
People in the neighborhood we fillin with rage
Yeah you feeding me a GMO
I'm wearing China made from head to toe
You got your money and your diamond in the back hey
We lifting cell phones at the radio shack
You keep us stupid cause you're clever like a king
We got the numbers yeah you feel the sting
We getting higher getting organized
Some of the 99 percent are bound to rise
You might be worried in your gated mansion
Feel the pressure cooker oppression
Don't you rely on daddy's wall st. plan
Better watch your back don't underestimate the working man

The plan was put together long ago
Don't let the masses know the knowledge you know
You know we're talking bout the new world order
Governments and corporations blurring the border
All the princes all the diplomats
Secret societies and many fat cats
Gonna test you fill you up with meaningless sex
Gonna give you super sonic megaplex
Control the media control the chiefs
Own the satellite and the cable tv
Go on and get your channels get your free app
They got you dialed and they know where you're at
Tracking the data of the consumer
Selling information to the highest bidder
GIve it away get along get along give it up to the upper hand
Better keep it straight don't underestimate the working man


Who can you blame who can you trust who can you burn
Everyday there is a lesson to be learned
Too far along, cashed out and much too late
Who's gonna be the one to give it to ya straight
Tell the children tell the fathers and the moms
We're building networks while you're building bombs
I do believe there is no us and them
But can you trust your fellow citizen
Get it up get it out get it on and raise the flag
Your baby's dreaming in a body bag
A soldier's wasted life for world control
No meditation gonna spare the soul
You got your guns you got your lock and load
You gonna hole up in a lead fox hole
We gonna bullet proof the minivan
Better watch your back don't underestimate the working man

Track Name: Cocaine Kisses
Cocaine kisses
Whiskey nights
Loose lipped lovers
Drunken fights
Morning headaches
Walks of shame
Already forgot
Her last name

Walking tall
Feelin high
Make it last
Till morning light
Keep the music
Beating on
Rock the DJ
One more song

She's going to Cali
It ain't that far
Making movies
Bout rock stars
She's a rock n roll queen
On the NY city scene

I'm feeling good
The way I should
Do it everyday
If I could
Won't u meet me in the john
We'll make it last the whole night long

Cocaine kisses
Whiskey nights
Loose lipped lovers
Drunken fights
Morning headaches
Walks of shame
Already forgot
Her last name

Track Name: Gone
You better watch out
Where you put your time these days
When you share your lovin ways
Where you put your heart
Your baby was shrewd
Left you with a cold blank stare
Made you pay the whole cab fare
And walked on

She’s gone
She’s gone
When she let go she was gone

Yeah i guess you never knew
The kind of damage love could do
The kind that makes you crack in two
The kind that takes a life
A grown man losing pride
To keep his woman satisfied
Doesn’t matter what you tried
You were on your own

She’s gone
She’s gone
When she let go she was gone

And now theres people
Asking how she’s doing alone
Ask you whereabouts unknown
And whos she seeing
Living on the back streets
She’s making love to deadbeats
Dancing on her bare feet
Wasting her soul

She’s gone
She’s gone
When she let go she was gone

Track Name: If You Got The Time I Got The Love
if you got the time i got the love
if you got the time i got the love

jump back step left head right outside
and lets go and bring it on home

if you got the time i got the love
if you got the time i got the love
i got the touch you been dreaming of

Track Name: Pull The Trigger
I don't know if you'll ever get the message
I don't know if you'll ever change
I just see what's straight in front of me
And a weapon about to unload at close range

You say you can't live with him
For everything he's destroyed and done
But can you walk the line
And watch the world decline
When you pull the trigger of the gun

If your enemy is hungry would u feed him
If he's thirsty would u give him water to drink
If he slaps you across your face
Would you turn the other cheek.

You say you can't live with him
For everything he's destroyed and done
But can you walk the line
And watch the world decline
When you pull the trigger of the gun

Neither one of us can predict the future
Neither one of us knows what's coming next
We know this world has got some problems
And the solutions are so complex

You say you can't live with him
For everything he's destroyed and done
But can you walk the line
And watch the world decline
When you pull the trigger of the gun
