Track Name: Get The Best Of Me
1. Get The Best Of Me
Chorus
The little devil on my shoulder whispering
And that’s when I give in
And when I’m thinkin’ that my streak is on the win
I’m back where I began, began, began, began and again
And that is why
You will always, you will always,
You will always get the best
You will always, you will always,
you will always get the best of me
Verse 1
Here’s the thing, the temptations & demons from the past
From a phase of livin’ loud & livin’ fast
And I know I should kill voices in my head
But, my rubber arms get twisted like a dred
And just when I think I’m out into the clear
You pull me back in
Cos you will always, you will always
You will always get the best
You will always, you will always,
You will always get the best of me
Chorus
Verse 2
Now see, the recklessness behaviour I possess
Are actions carried out by a man possessed
And for every action there’s a consequence
Believe me that these acts are all past tense
And just when I think I have myself convinced
You suck me back in
Cos you will always, you will always
You will always get the best
You will always, you will always,
You will always get the best of me
Chorus
Bridge
You keep attacking my weakness
And keep getting the best of me
But now I’m shaking my weakness
One day you’ll be second best to me
Chorus
Track Name: Hear You Calling Me (Ft. Mat. McHugh)
Verse 1 (Kid Mac)
Coin tossed in the well
And she made a wish
Just gave her dreams a goodbye kiss
As she waits and she hopes
But never had a GO
Cash, cash, money, money
Hear the voices echo wishin’
Crash test dummy dummy
Lacking heart and wisdom missing
Get your penny back
Get a spine on your back
Disappear, kick your fear
Come now and have a crack

Chorus (Mat. McHugh)
Any wish we make
Any way we go
Any broken day
Is a lonely road
Any way we fall down
Well I’m on my knees
Then I hear you call now
I hear you calling me

Verse 2: (Kid Mac)
Coin flicked in the well
He dwells upon a wish
Fate called and rang his bell
His door was shut, a chance was missed
From life, he hides
'Down on my luck' he cried
Binge drinking, throat killing
Never had a GO
Click clack bang bang
Playing life like roulette
White and black, he'll never change
Cigarette's and life regrets
Fear he never faced it
Sour loss he tasted
Lost in the world
Another penny wasted

Chorus

Bridge (Kid Mac)
The F the E the A the R
Will keep you where you are
Your penny will always be
Just silent screams
Swimming in a wishing well
Of empty dreams
Your wishful thinkin’ now
To luck it will not bow
Confidence will slowly grow
Here we, here we, here we GO!

Chorus

Outro
(Kid Mac) X 4
The F the E the A the R
Will keep you where you are

(Mat. McHugh) X4
I hear you calling me
Track Name: Dream Weaver
Verse 1
Crawling on land
I’ll help you run on water
Life spent on a plan
No need to start over
Realise it’s not so tragic
And if you believe in magic
Than this will be forever
Lay your head down on the pillow
Count the stars outside the window
I’ll help you now more than ever

Chorus
I can change your life right now
I can change your life right now
I’ll be your dream weaver
Dream weaver
I’ll be your dream weaver
Dream weaver
Verse 2
See it in your eyes
I sense the hesitation
Illuminate the skies
Exceed your expectation
I can take away today’s pain
We can live tomorrow today
And leave behind your nightmare
Close your eyes and keep on wishin’
Soon enough we’re sky-high livin’
Just look around and I’ll be there

Chorus
Bridge
I’ll be your dream, be your dream
be your dream weaver
I’ll make you see, make you see
be a believer
And all your fears
we’ll dance them all away
Chorus
Track Name: They Don't Hear Me
Verse 1
The independence, confidence
They just don’t make em’ like they did before
Morality, irrelevant
They speak what they see but don’t think no more
Mimic the box, so glamorous
Reality is channeless
My actions scream loud down the hall
But they don’t hear me at all
Chorus
(Hey ay, ay, ay)
They don’t hear me at all
(Hey ay, ay, ay)
They don’t hear me at all
At all, at all, at all, at all
They don’t hear me at all
(ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh)
They don’t hear me at all
Verse 2
The silver spoon, high demands
They need a lesson from the school of hard knocks
The principals, dirty hands
They need assistance to pull up their own socks
The leaders are to generous
The followers oblivious
My actions scream loud down the hall
But they don’t hear me at all
Track Name: Don't Look Back (Ft. Sarah McLeod)
Verse 1 (Kid Mac)
Every time the sun melts down
And the purple sky comes out
(Whoa oh oh oh, whoa oh oh oh)
See no evil, speak no sound
Still the shadows can be found
(Whoa oh oh oh, whoa oh oh oh)
And I try to fight the feeling
The feeling’s got me fighting all night long
So good it can’t be wrong
I try to hide the emptiness inside
The essence of this pill’s got me living a dam lie
I’m trapped in my old ways in a cage with no key
What can I say it’s the animal in me
Chorus
(Whoa oh oh oh)
With every step I take I see the truth
And its all in you
(Whoa oh oh oh)
With every triumph comes a new break through
Much better than you knew
Verse 2
Every time I look around
All I see is smiles turned down
(Whoa oh oh oh, whoa oh oh oh)
In my head a thumping sound
Something’s gotta give right now
(Whoa oh oh oh, whoa oh oh oh)
And I try to fight the feeling
The feeling’s got me fighting all night long
So good it can’t be wrong
My mind is at the ceiling
No way I’ll find a healing in this zone
So good it can’t be wrong
Chorus
(Whoa oh oh oh)
With every step I take I see the truth
And its all in you
(Whoa oh oh oh)
With every triumph comes a new break through
Much better than you knew
(Whoa oh oh oh)
I feel my body standing strong again
And I feel no pain
(Whoa oh oh oh)
There’ll be sunshine where there was only rain
And I feel no pain
Outro
Don’t Look back (Don’t ever look back) x8
Track Name: Lunatic
Chorus
Uh oh, here we go
Another psycho
Every time I get a chick
She’s a lunatic
Verse 1
Tick, tick, tick, toc
Time goes by on the new love clock
At first was the honeymoon phase
Experimental sexual craze
She had that crazy “fuck me” eye
And now it’s a crazy “kill you” vibe
Her mood’s like a rollercoaster
Up, down, round & round
I get nervous when she frowns
Cos she’s thinkin’ bout’ burning my house down
She said “If I catch you cheating
I promise I won’t get pissed off
I’ll just wait until you’re sleeping
And cut your penis off”
She said “Don’t ever leave me
And if you do, I’ll find you!”
Chorus
Verse 2
Tick, tick, tick, boom!
She’s a time bomb exploding soon
Stalking my Facebook invading my space
All female friends she’s erased
Transformed from a Princess Leia
To a crazy terminator
I tried to say “Hasta la vista”
But she wouldn’t get the picture
I said “I’m through with you”
She said “I love you too!”
Some dudes are under the thumb
But me, I’m under black voodoo
I sense the jealousy
She won’t stop stalking me
99 problems, 1 chick
99 missed calls, 1 lunatic
Chorus
Bridge
Maybe I drove her mad
Maybe I’m in the wrong
And turned a good girl bad
And I was crazy all along
I was trippin’ plain & simple
She’s a cool chick
Then she pulls out a pistol (bang)
She’s a lunatic
Chorus x 2
Track Name: No Man's Land
Verse 1
Lost in outer space, feeling out of place
And came down in a UFO man
Contemplate escape, with no magic cape
So I don’t know where to go now
No one around (no one around)
I’m all alone (I’m all alone)
I’m not sure where I feel at home
And see, that should phase & frustrate me
But deep down I know I’m not lost
Is anybody out here
Is anybody out here
Is anybody out here
Is anybody out here with me
Chorus
Nobody will ever understand
In the middle is where I am
Faster I run, quicker the sand
In the middle is no man’s land
Verse 2
Do I hide or chase, to or from this place
Trying to steer but got no control man
Confusing love for hate, and hating lovers fate
A battlefield inside my own soul now
No one around (no one around)
I’m all alone (I’m all alone)
Is this danger or a comfort zone
And see, that should lose & confuse me
But deep down I know I’m not lost
Is anybody out here
Is anybody out here
Is anybody out here
Is anybody out here with me
Chorus
Verse 3
No familiar face, hangin’ on my ace
Found a place with some room to grow man
I could follow them, or be an alien
And play the lead in a one-man show and
No one around (no one around)
I’m all alone (I’m all alone)
Just how I like it, I’m on my own
And see, lost in space where I should be
So deep down I know I’m not lost
Chorus
Track Name: Freedom
Verse 1
Horizon sun risin’
Waves shaking hands with sand
White beaches, boardshorts
This is livin’ man
Let the sun sizzle our backs
As we paddle out the back
Surrounded by good company
The sea sets us free
Escape from the rat race
This is my space
No need to login
What we’ve got is mellow mind states
Forever dancin’ on the waves
Acrobatic board display
Offshore breeze, warm degrees
The perfect day
Chorus
We’re gonna ride this out
Til the sun comes down
For the freedom, freedom
Ride this out
Til the sun comes down
For the freedom, freedom
Verse 2
The tide is comin’ in
That’s when the session ends
Crew all chill up Barbie Hill
This is livin’ man
Braggin’ about that left you got
That no one saw or just forgot
Sound of the sea is the soundtrack theme
Livin’ the dream
Wasting time, corona & lime
Sunsets behind
The backdrop of the perfect picture
Mother nature kissed ya
Forever we will live this way
Embrace the ocean spray
We are blessed, picturesque
The perfect day
Chorus
Bridge
We will ride
And forever be free
We just wanna live free
We will ride
And forever be free
We just wanna live free
Chorus x 2
Track Name: No More
Verse 1
Wide awake and numb
Re-occurring fears of failure
Beating my own drum
Following isn’t in my nature
Everything that I’ve become
I’ve succumb to inner pressure
Losing my grip on pleasure
High up, far from the ground
I’ve been up then crashed back down
Somehow, In my own mess I drown
It’s killing my health & I’ve devoted my whole life
But I keep asking myself
Chorus
What’s all this for
When I keep pushing and fighting
And barely surviving
I can’t push no more
What’s all this for
When I keep pushing and fighting
And barely surviving
I can’t push no more
Verse 2
Wanting something more
Forever chasing something special
Sickness with no cure
Running low on inspiration
Everything that’s still to come
Will succumb to determination
I can’t run from my obsessions
High up, far from the ground
I’ve been up then crashed back down
Somehow, In my own mess I drown
It’s killing my health & I’ve devoted my whole life
But I keep asking myself
Chorus
Track Name: Times We Had
Chorus
The memories come and go these days (yeah)
But how I wish that they would stay
We watch them fade away
Do memories fade away?
The times we had
The times we had
Verse 1
The laughs, the memories, the dreams we held
The bumps, the bruises, the failure to excel
Bright lights flashing attracted to the fast life
10 years passing now wishing for the past life
Take a picture make it last
All the times we had we will never forget
Dam straight it was a blast
All the times we had no we never will regret
Chorus
Verse 2
The pain, the secrets, the tears we cried
The aging pictures will never lie
Side by side and experienced the phases
Memories don’t lie, living through the madness
Take a picture make it last
All the times we had we will never forget
Dam straight it was a blast
All the times we had no we never will regret
Chorus
Bridge
(Whoa, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh)
I can feel the whispers from you
Coming back to life
(Whoa, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh)
I can feel the whispers from you
Coming back to life
Chorus
Track Name: She Goes Off (Ft. Mickey Avalon)
Verse 1 (Kid Mac)
Knockin’ everybody dead
Ms John Wayne
Sculling from the silver pillow
Hittin’ Mary Jane-o
Twenty five
semi-automatic drive
Evil-eyeing girls
Looking out this world
So dangerous and feisty-like
Can kill a man with her crazy eyes
No backing down, unload a round
Squeeze with my finger, pull the trigger
Chorus
She goes off like a gun
She goes bang bang bang bang
Verse 2 (Mickey Avalon)
I got my finger on the trigger
Now my pants are getting bigger
With the fully automatic
Get her wetter than a river
In the middle of the night
Strobe light flashin’
Man I knew she was the one
When I was sprung before I smashed it
So we passed third base and when I passed her the pipe
She said “I didn’t really take you for the passionate type”
We was dirty dancin’ with her hand on my mic
I never had the chance so I didn’t put up a fight
We got right to the edge and she was ready to cum
Bang bang bang bang, she went off like a gun
Chorus
Bridge
See early in the night
So friggin hard to tell
She tried to act all shy
“I’m not that kinda girl”
Few vodkas later on
“I want you Mickey Avalon”
Loads it up, cocks it back
“Pull my trigger Kid Mac”
Chorus
Track Name: My Brother's Keeper
Verse 1
There was times I was lost, dark, had fear
Couldn’t see through the rain, in the end it would clear
Shit hit the fan, I was more than one man
Who was there to lend a hand, together we’d stand
Always have my back, my guardian soldier
Team pulled together, united we’d conquer
Blessed is he who in the name of charity
Carry me, when I’m weak straight through the valley of
Darkness, pitch blackness, the heartless
Regardless, fear couldn’t part us
Thick & thin, there by my side
At times we’d collide but in the end we ride
Thick & thin, there by my side
At times we’d collide but in the end we ride
We ride, ride, ride, ride
Are you my brother’s keeper?
Chorus
Keep on holding strong
United we stand, divided we fall
Together we belong
I am my brother’s keeper
Keep on holding strong
United we stand, divided we fall
Together we belong
I am My Brother’s keeper
(ey ey oh)
I am My Brother’s keeper
(ey ey oh)
I am My Brother’s keeper
Verse 2
My brother may walk wrong paths
But right or wrong he’s one of us
We guide him to the light
We fight for what is right
My brother my b-best friend
Til the end we d-defend
Never seen a bond so concrete
I will strike down upon thee
With great vengeance and furious anger
Those who attempt to destroy my brother
Thick & thin, there by my side
At times we’d collide but in the end we ride
Thick & thin, there by my side
At times we’d collide but in the end we ride
We ride, ride, ride, ride
Are you my brother’s keeper?
Chorus
Bridge
As I walk through the valley of darkness
I shall fear no man
For I am truly my brother’s keeper
Yes I am (yes I am, yes I am)
Chorus
Track Name: Nobody Sleep Nobody Get Hurt
Verse 1
I kick start the weekend with a campaign
Guarantee on Monday there’ll be back pains
A few days of madness is expected
Accept this, things are going to get hectic
If you’re in, then you’re in for the long haul
In the morning we’ll be taking a roll call
Anything goes up in here it’s all cool
All you gotta do is follow the rules
Nobody Sleep, Nobody Get Hurt (x4)
Chorus
Verse 2
Now the place is rockin’ in full swing
Everyone’s as high as Xao Ming
I walk in and see everybody
Eating biscuits but this ain’t no tea party
Even goodie goodies have a little bit of cheek
We all got demons and inner freaks
Anything goes up in here it’s all cool
All you gotta do is follow the rules
Nobody Sleep, Nobody Get Hurt (x4)
Bridge
We go all night, we go all day
We don’t pull up at halfway
When the full moon is on display
The freaks come out and play
We go all night, we go all day
We don’t pull up at halfway
When the full moon is on display
The freaks come out and play
Chorus
Track Name: Other Side
Verse 1
Living a life
Only barely alive
(Yeah, whoa oh)
Addiction you hide
But really living a lie
(Yeah, whoa oh)
And so you keep denying
Slowly dying
Swallowing your pride
But still I keep on holding
Strongly hoping
You’ll find the other side
Chorus
Follow me and let me guide
We’re going to the other side
Follow me and let me guide
We’re going to the other side
Verse 2
Living your life
Fighting demons inside
(Yeah, whoa oh)
But in your mind
Happy memories rewind
(Yeah, whoa oh)
You need to keep on fighting
High life riding
Take it stride by stride
And now you’re slowly moulding
Know we’re going
To the other side
Chorus
Verse 3
When thoughts are blurred distorted
And life’s slippin’ away
You want the other side
But demons make you stay
(You had it all when you worked so hard for it)
(You can use the same effort to get yourself outer here)
I know you suffer like hell
God knows I feel your pain
Those around you hurt as well
Believing in your change
And I know you can do this
The road back to repair
And if you need some guidance
Take my hand I’ll lead you there
Chorus (x2)
