Oh baby I know it’s been a long time These summer nights have been a grind but now we’re coming into our prime It took a while to materialize But now we’re in this place, and I saw your face with that look in your eyes You can count on me…. To make it all feel right You can count on me… to get you that good feeling We’re getting closer… with the game on the line, we’re doing fine Just the other day, you were in a rain cloud Everything grey, you were yelling so loud I couldn’t help myself (you’re) / acting like someone else (and) This shit bad for your health (you) / gotta express yourself (so) I said keep your damn composure And brush the dirt off of your shoulder It’s in the eye of the beholder So baby get a little closer I know you got your heart on fire So go and use it to inspire those around you It’s no surprise what you desire Walking on wire but I see you… I see you getting closer…. To have it all feel right And we’re getting closer… to getting that good feeling We’re getting closer… with the game on the line, we’re doing fine Oh baby I know it’s been a long fight We put in time and did it right and now the light is shining so bright From here up to the sky (you’re) / not one to say goodbye (you) Had your eyes on the prize (but) / you needed my advice (to) To keep your damn composure And brush the dirt off of your shoulder It’s in the eye of the beholder So baby give it to the closer

Tremors 03:50
Caught you thinkin aloud Talkin like nobody’s around About love, and the meaning of life Contemplation that can give you strife Well, you got your head in the clouds Come on down so we can figure this out With looove, and musical ambition I will show you what you have been missing Wake up honey, you say you gotta make some money But I don’t need that to be with you Ain’t it funny, how you wanna be somebody But I can see that, you just can’t choose who Workin through your weekends Stressin, goin off the deepend Looove ain’t in that business Find your flexibility and forgiveness Well, you’d better move fast Jump this ship and make yourself a new path With loooove, and musical ambition We can knock this funk into commission Wake up honey, you say you gotta make some money But I don’t need that to be with you Ain’t it funny, how you wanna be somebody But I can see that, you just can’t choose who Wake up honey

Thoughts 04:27
I know, I know, I know, what you’re gonna say I want you but babe you gotta go away I know what you gotta do Never look back I’d never get over you I don’t mind, you lookin for a new day Put it behind you don’t need me anyway Lock it up, throw away the key The thoughts of you and me I got it bad I can’t get you out of my head What we had The kind of love that I want back You know (you know, you know) what you put me through? All these thoughts in my head of losing you (but) You know that you ain’t gotta leave What’s it gonna take for you to ever see? You know that you gotta stay I can’t have it any single other way Who knows what this all could be? With thoughts of you and me… I got it bad I can’t get you out of my head What we had The kind of love that I want back THOUGHTS OF YOU / GET ME THROUGH I got it bad I can’t get you out of my head What we had The kind of love that I want back

I can see for miles Baby, and I see that I sure do like your style And maybe, you’d see me Stay with you a while But baby, believe me If you put this all on trial Well that’s when I get the feeling Who told you about love? This is not what I was thinking of Who told you what you do is true? So baby what are we to do? Have you ever wondered what it’s like? To be on my side, and in my life And do you fantasize, about us getting down and dirty just you and… I think if you’re ready to be steady Well girl I’m telling you I’d qualify I been out here searching, I’ve been working But girl I’m telling you that this won’t fly Who told you about love? This is not what I was thinking of Who told you what you do is true? So baby what are we to do?

I’ve been thinking about The ways the world could end / Could I defend Could I figure it out? A way to win a war against A zombie army of the undead Ooooo, you best be careful where you’re steppin And get a grip on all your weapons It’s time to gather your possessions DASH Step to the deck with the microphone check Complex rudiments get set and go Feel the vibe live on the floor Shake with the bass as break in the mold Hold on to your hats as the jazz comes back Screaming from the horns on an analog track Remix the style with the file abstract You best believe that we are fighting For, the future of the world Of zombie guts and gore If the apocalypse would happen You gotta know what to be packin For, the future of the world Of zombie guts and gore If the apocalypse would happen Better get ready for some action DASH Takin funk high tech, pumpin out content This is James Brown meets Star Trek Going broadband, digital to augment Time and distance, listen on the internet This is live stream, brighter than a laser beam Cuttin up the decks, Yukon is the home team Heal your wounds when the tunes start floating Music kill the pain like codeine I’ve been running around With my supplies could I survive the night With the undead abound It’s time to fight for my own life And stab some zombies with a bread knife Ooooo, you best be careful where you’re steppin And get a grip on all your weapons It’s time to gather your possessions You best believe that we are fighting For, the future of the world Of zombie guts and gore If the apocalypse would happen You gotta know what to be packin For, the future of the world Of zombie guts and gore If the apocalypse would happen Better get ready for some action
