Bitch in the Box
Turn to the left, turn to the right,
Take the turn make the green light
Follow direction, listen close,
Do what she says don't be verbose
Do what she tells you
Go where you're going to
Over the bridge, far away,
Endless road finding the way
Finding the way home

Bitch in the box - tells me where to go
Bitch in the box - all that she knows

Computer voice, emotion free,
Where to go and where to be
She keeps talking
Take a detour, construction zone,
There is no map I'm on my own
All by yourself
You are driving home

Bitch in the box - tells me where to go
Bitch in the box - all that she knows

Stop for gas, resume your course,
I can't go back there's no remorse
Pay the toll, pay the fine
Do the distance do the time
Take the next right
Run the red light
Going straight, down the street,
Follow the road my trip's complete
Guiding your way
Always one way
Never get you home

Bitch in the box - tells me where to go
Bitch in the box - all that she knows
Bitch in the box - Bitch in the box
Bitch in the box - Bitch in the box
 
 
Ego
Ignorance and maybe more
The selfishness we all deplore
Everything is done for you
Change your diaper when you do
The worlds become your biggest toy
Nothing but a little boy
Throw a tantrum everyday
All I have to say

Ego Ego Ego acting like a child

Entitled person deny what's true
Making people work for you
Insecure to the core
Never enough and you want more
Between your legs you put your tail
Know that you are bound to fail
Lessons you will never learn
Go to hell and burn

Ego Ego Ego running wild
Ego Ego Ego acting like a child

Satisfied you'll never be
Never learned integrity
Manipulation is your game

You're the first to criticize
You should be brought down to size
Dark sunglasses when you're inside
Like a coward you do hide
Take a share when it's not fair
You take my share and then we're square
Send you home you little man
You are nothing but a scam

Ego Ego Ego running wild
Ego Ego Ego acting like a child
 
 
Doing What I Want
When I was young and innocent
With future there to see
I made crucial choices
For what was gonna be
I live with all the consequence
And will always carry on
I'm the one I answer too
And will be 'til I'm gone, until I'm gone

I'm just doing what I want until I'm gone
I'm just doing what I want
I'm just doing what I want

If people try to change me
I tell them where to go
I live my life the way I want
It's the only way I know
Be your own hero
And pursue the things you love
When you have the passion
That I'm singing of, I'm singing of

I'm just doing what I want, for the love
I'm just doing what I want
I'm just doing what I want

Critics try to bash you
Take your worth away
Doesn't matter what they think
Even less in what they say
When you do what you want
You know that it's done right
The driving of your destiny
To your hearts delight, hearts delight

I'm just doing what I want, hearts delight
I'm just doing what I want
I'm just doing what I want
 
 
Smash Your Face
Stand before the wall of sound
Now you know to what you're bound
Feel it to the core of your soul
Give you something with rhythm and rhyme
Melodic tune done in time
The simplicity of rock and roll

Smash your face, Smash your face
With power and aggression
Smash your face, Smash your face
With a sonic procession

Let the sound fill your ears
The memories last for years
It's become the sound track to your life
Feel the spirit in notes and beat
Sonic addiction no retreat
Blas musik cuts like a knife

Smash your face, Smash your face
With power and aggression
Smash your face, Smash your face
With a sonic procession

Surrender to the feelin'
Time to let go
Singer starts screamin'
Make the speakers blow
Stand before the wall of sound
Feel it shake the very ground
Feel it in the center of your soul
Live the spirit in notes and beat
Life's too short with no repeat
The complexity of rock and roll

Smash your face, Smash your face
With power and aggression
Smash your face, Smash your face
With a sonic procession
 
 
Pounding the Pavement
(Instrumental)
 
 
Rock That Shit
When the lights go down, I'm stage bound
Can't wait for the sound, gonna shake the ground
Nothing will stop, not even a cop
Gotta stay on top, let's go to the hop
Gotta do it right, rock with all your might
Heavy metal fight, rock that shit tonight
Rock that shit tonight

Feel the pounding beat, subsonic treat
Can't compete, it's a meet and greet
Now ya know the deal, give in to the feel
Something to reveal, it's a rock 'n' roll meal
Gotta do it right, rock with all your might
Heavy metal fight, rock that shit tonight
Rock that shit tonight

When the lights go down
You know where I'm found
I'll be makin' the sound
Breaking new ground
Nothing will stop, not even a cop
Gotta stay on top, let's go to the hop
Gotta do it right, rock with all your might
Heavy metal fight, rock that shit tonight
 
 
Let It Go
Say what you mean, mean what you say
Feeling proud at the end of the day
When the time is right
And you've something to say
Someone to listen with attention to pay
With attention to pay

Finding strength to live and cope
Finding love and feeling hope
Release the anger let go of hate
Let it all just dissipate

Common let's hear ya - Common just let it go
Common let's hear ya - Just let it go

Truth pisses off but sets you free
Be just who you've got to be
Say what you mean, mean what you say
Feeling proud at the end of the day

Common let's hear ya - Common just let it go
Common let's hear ya - Just let it go
Common let's hear ya - Common just let it go
Common let's hear ya - Just let it go
 
 
Nanook of the North
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north

On a seal skinned sled the huskies led through the ice and snow
Where the northern lights in the dark cold nights guide you where to go
In their natives land in their clan searching for a meal
With harpoon in hand as they planned they got themselves a seal
Polar bear run, midnight sun, arctic frost, what is lost

It's the story of
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north

In the igloo home shaped like a dome they lay down to sleep
Protection at night from the wolves that bite a good precaution to keep
Peaceful place becomes a disgrace
Ravaged land the damage grand

It's the legend of
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north

On a steel made sled the engines
Rev through the ice and snow
Where the man made lights,
Propane heats the nights and the oil drill does go
Invade the land take what they can the ultimate raw deal
Money in hand as they planned the truth can't be concealed
Nature's place, the truth to face, right or claim,
Take the blame, ravaged land damage grand

It's the tragedy of
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
Nanook - Nanook, Nanook of the north
 
 
Black Smoke
When there's smoke you go
All you need to know
Fire's on your track
There is no going back
Adrenalin to rise
They'll be no compromise
You are in the driver's seat
Victory could be so sweet
Flames to defeat

Black smoke - Hot wire
Black smoke - Red fire

Energy is on your side
Take it in your stride
Temperature and heat is high
Blackened smoke into the sky
Have the power and the will
Now you're in for the kill
Drown the flames of doubt
What it's all about
Let the demons out

Black smoke - Hot wire
Black smoke - Red fire

Choke the air kill the flame
Be the cause and be the blame
Lion to tame
Overcoming fear
The meaning so clear
Fight the fight so you can win
The time is now to begin
Beat the dragon use the sword
There's no options to explore
You are in the driver's seat
Victory could be so sweet
Flames to defeat

Black smoke - Hot wire
Black smoke - Red fire
Black smoke - Hot wire
Black smoke - Red fire
 
 
World of Tomorrow
We all are searching for the utopian dream
The competition, of the game and the team
Subjective perfection, hard to achieve
The eternal answer lies in what you believe
What you believe, in what you believe

World of tomorrow
World of tomorrow

The separate gods, that we think are above
We want a world, filled with peace and with love
Peace and love
With peace and love

Tolerance will teach us, to be strong and be brave
History tells you, what lives we must save
Promised a heaven, that may not exist
Follow the leader, that you should resist

You should resist
You should resist

World of tomorrow
World of tomorrow
 
 
Warming Up
Off your ass and do it right
Got to be on point tonight
Get out the kinks and get in gear
Possess the power with no fear
Feel the wind in your sail
Hear the guitars start to wale
Drummer plays the fancy beat
Get you on your lazy feet

Warming up, warming up
Warming up to you

Light the fire burn it hot
Show me what you really got
Best get on your dancing shoes
This is what you have to do
Feel the music in your soul
Soothing sound of rock and roll
Get yourself just feeling right
Give it all with all your might

Warming up, warming up
Warming up to you

Off your ass and do it quick
Be in shape that's the trick
Be the best you can be
Be the best for all to see
Soaked skin sweat does pour
Get you ready to do more
The desire to live by,
It's the key to get you high

Warming up, warming up
Warming up to you
 
 
Don't Tell Me
Watching the TV set and what they have to say
Looking for the truth they try to convey
When you do the research appalled to what you find
Nothing but a pack of lies and a quandary for your mind
Hypocrites and contradiction so much there to see
Listen to the talking head the words of spewed debris
Go to a place of worship and hear what was said
Religion won't save you if you are dead

Don't tell me
Don't tell me fake news
Don't tell me
No truth abuse

Fact or fiction as we learn to find the truth
The evidence won't show us when there is no proof
Life from other planets the mystery of what they are
Forbidden and secret wish upon a star
Going on what you're told
And what some people say
Mob mentality looks for victims
On which to prey

Don't tell me
Don't tell me fake news
Don't tell me
No truth abuse

Ignorance indoctrination simple to apply
When we're constantly told an outright lie
Hypocrites and contradiction
So much there to see
Listen to the talking head
The words of spewed debris
Go to a place of worship
And hear what was said
Religion is the reason that hatred is spread

Don't tell me
Don't tell me fake news
Don't tell me
No truth abuse
 
 
Spark It Up
Rocket ship to heaven gets you off tonight
The canon is lit and ready to ignite
Pedal to the metal burning tires scream
Living on the edge is living for the dream

Spark it up - spark it up

Take a magic carpet ride
Before your time runs out
Take it to the limit is
What life's all about
Coming to the crossroads
You know you will survive
Feel your heart racing
You know that you're alive

Spark it up - spark it up

Like the wheel of fortune
Spinning round and round
With jackhammer force and
Pavement to pound to pound to pound

Feeding a fire gasoline to flame
Going for gold and winning the game
Pedal to the metal hear the tires scream
Living on the edge is living for the dream

Spark it up - spark it up
