    Introduction: I Am

    It’s... the Beast! 

    I have been running endlessly without intermission...

    The only source of stamina I have left are my rolling thoughts:

    The expulsion from the corner pet store...

    The abduction of my freedom by curious lab coats...

    The malfunction of a secret science laboratory underneath the power plant...

    These past events in my life have escalated into a full-fledged hunt: 

    A hunt for me.

    Because I am in danger, or because I am dangerous?

    From cityscape to jungle, I am welcomed nowhere.

    But ultimately my freedom is left unchallenged...

    Perhaps because my fate is not meant to be held in the hands of others,

    But rather, in my own.

    It would definitely explain why I continue to escape from these prisons,

    And why freedom finds me again and again.

    Because I am Unleashed... And I trust Instinct...

    I am NIIC the Singing Dog... AND I AM THE BEAST!

    Beast

    It’s... the Beast!

    You want an explanation

    You’ll give a penny for my thoughts

    But this coin’s not even real copper

    Well neither am I! I’m just a pen filled with their ink

    And nowhere to hide!

    I am the Beast!

    I am the hunter and the hunted all at once

    “No bad publicity,” you say

    Until you take away my name!

    I am the Beast!

    I am the sinner and the saint rolled into one

    Just take whatever you need from me,

    I just need you gone!

    You want my cursive on this line

    (You want it, on this line)

    To chain my freedom to yours

    (To chain my freedom to yours)

    Well, I hope, oh, you win

    Oh, the greatest wish in life!

    ‘Cause our fate is bound

    Together now

    'Till we’re six feet down!

    You’ll never bury us both alive!

    I am the Beast!

    I am the hunter and the hunted all at once

    “No bad publicity,” you say 

    Until you take away my name!

    I am the Beast!

    I am the sinner and the saint rolled into one

    Just take whatever you can’t live without,

    I’ll live without you!

    Yeah, let’s go!

    You want an explanation...

    You’ll give a penny for my thoughts...

    Well I have one good story left to tell:

    I left my cell without a sound

    And your wretched heart,

    They never found!

    I AM THE BEAST!

    I am the hunter and the hunted all at once

    “No bad publicity,” you say

    Until you take away my name!

    I am the Beast! I am the sinner and the saint rolled into one

    Just take whatever you need from me,

    I JUST NEED YOU GONE!

    I am the Beast!

    I am the hunter and the hunted all at once

    “No bad publicity,” you say

    Until you take away my name!

    I am the Beast!

    I am the sinner and the saint rolled into one

    Just take whatever you can’t live without,

    I’LL LIVE WITHOUT YOU!

    BEAST! BEAST! I AM THE BEAST!

    BEAST! BEAST! I AM THE BEAST!

    BEAST! BEAST! I AM THE BEAST!

    BEAST! BEAST! I AM THE BEAST!

    Howl At The Moon

    No more talk

    Tonight

    Let go, and let our bodies steal the conversation

    It's our time

    Tonight

    Let's hit the dance floor for one final demonstration

    Oh, do you feel

    Like life was one big question until now?

    Do you feel

    Like our bodies know the answer?

    Oh, do you feel

    That moon above ain't up to any good

    But I'mma let it join in, and take me and you

    C’mon let’s dance

    All night

    Spinning in a moonlit lunar disco

    C’mon let’s dance

    All right!

    Yeah, like animals, taking this dancefloor

    And we don't know just what tonight's end will bring

    So c'mon fill up your lungs with love and sing

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    Ooo Ooo Ooo

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    Ooo Ooo Ooo

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    Come over here

    That's right

    This dance needs two of us to give into temptation

    No more fear

    Tonight

    I'll take your hands and spin you through this transformation

    Oh, do you feel

    Like these bodies, they are not ours anymore?

    Do you feel 

    Like that dancefloor holds the answer?

    Oh, do you feel

    That moon above ain't up to any good

    But I'll gladly let it take me and you!

    C’mon let’s dance

    All night

    Spinning in a moonlit lunar disco

    C’mon let’s dance

    All right!

    Yeah, like animals, taking this dancefloor

    And we don't know just what tonight's end will bring

    So c'mon fill up your lungs with love and sing

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    Ooo Ooo Ooo

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    Ooo Ooo Ooo

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    How did we get where we are now?

    Entangled chests, by the sun of the night

    I'll never know, but that's okay

    Just as long as you stay with me and dance!

    C’mon let’s dance (Whooo!)

    All night

    Spinning in a moonlit lunar disco (Yes!)

    C’mon let’s dance (Ha!)

    All right! (All right!)

    Yeah, like animals, taking this dancefloor (Yeah!)

    C’mon let’s dance

    All night (Yeah!)

    Spinning in a moonlit lunar disco (Ah! Spinning in a moonlit lunar disco!)

    C’mon let’s dance All right! (All right!)

    Yeah, like animals, taking this dancefloor (Yeah! Like animals!)

    And we don't know just what tonight's end will bring

     So c'mon fill up your lungs with love and sing

    Like we're howling at the moon! (Like we're howling at the moon! Yeah!)

    Ooo Ooo Ooo

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    Ooo Ooo Ooo

    Like we're howling at the moon!

    C'mon, let's dance!

    The Next Horizon

    Sew my eyelids shut

    Keep me in the dark

    I’m a carpenter

    Building kingdoms in my sleep

    You’re my troubadour

    Whispering your chorus

    Echoing lullabies to keep me here

    But what if we,

    You and me

    Could travel lightyears back to reality?

    What if the stars

    Played their parts,

    And stole the dark away for good?

    I wanna be free! I wanna be saved!

    I wanna begin the next horizon!

    Wake up out of our heads

    No monsters under our beds, woah

    I wanna stand up! I wanna unlock!

    I wanna hear “You will not be forgot!”

    Feel the sunlight ahead

    Bring us back to life again,

    On the next horizon

    Screw the calvary!

    You and I can be legendary

    In this world or the next

    Though I’d rather die

    Maybe we can try

    Building sanctuaries in the morning light

    What if we, You and me

    Could travel lightyears back to reality?

    (Travel lightyears!)

    What if the world

    Was something more,

    And we could come right back through this door?

    I wanna be free! I wanna be saved!

    I wanna begin the next horizon!

    Wake up out of our heads

    No monsters under our beds, woah

    I wanna stand up! I wanna unlock!

    I wanna hear “You will not be forgot!”

    Feel the sunlight ahead

    Bring us back to life again,

    On the next horizon!

    I wanna be saved!

    Ah! Yeah, ah!

    Ah, ah, ah!

    I feel the sunlight ahead

    Bring us back to life again, woah...

    We’ve got one more chance,

    Let’s wake up from this prison...

    On the next horizon! 

    I wanna be free! I wanna be saved!

    I wanna begin the next horizon!

    Wake up out of our heads

    No monsters under our beds, woah

    I wanna stand up! I wanna unlock!

    I wanna hear “You will not be forgot!”

    Feel the sunlight ahead

    Bring us back to life again, 

    On the next horizon!

    Could You Ever

    Could you be the shimmer in my dreams?

    That glistening beneath the pale dawn?

    Before I wake up, I try and see your face

    But all of it’s erased by the morning

    Tell me, am I wrong to believe in you?

    Is there really such a thing as déjà vu?

    Would that be you sitting over there?

    Waiting for my stare to lock our eyes?

    But you can’t possibly know me from before

    Oh am I even sure it’s the same?

    Tell me am I wrong to believe in this?

    It’s too good to be true, but what if...

    Could you ever love someone like me?

    Would you ever be the hope I need?

    Come and save me

    Your touch is a taste of Heaven

    (And you’re) And you’re my saving grace

    Could you ever love someone like me?

    Would you ever be the love I seek?

    I’m locked in solitude

    My heart is an iron deadbolt

    And you’re the key

    Yeah

    Oh no, I must be wrong!

    Something isn’t right!

    I’ve checked the bathroom mirror far too many times!

    This can’t be! I don’t deserve 

    Love from anyone!

    I’m far too awful of a creature!

    But maybe, just maybe, oh!

    Could you ever love someone like me?

    Without you, it’d mean the death of me!

    My heart is calling, yeah:

    Your voice is a soothing song

    Your call, it awakens me!

    Could you ever love someone like me?

    Could you the stop the hunger eating me?

    I’m falling faster now

    This world is a nightmare

    But your love is a happy ending!

    Oh yeah! Ow!

    Could you ever love someone like me?

    Without you, it’d mean the death of me!

    My heart is calling, yeah:

    Your voice is a soothing song, oh!

    Your voice is a soothing song, oh!

    Your voice is a soothing song,

    Your call, it awakens!

    Could you ever love someone like me?

    Could you stop the hunger eating me?

    I’m falling faster

    This world is a nightmare

    But your love is a happy ending

    Heart In Me

    I’ve got no collar, got no name

    But their fingers always find a new one

    Yeah pointing at me with their new

    Titles of nobility

    Well, I’m no king of dumpster trash

    No poster child of envy I’m here just to play the game of life!

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    Oh Oh Oh

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    Oh Oh

    Either tag me in or watch me win

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    I’ve got no beat inside this cage

    My chest is cold and silent

    And I’ve spent too many hours

    Under bridges trying to find it:

    That pumping, beating, energizing

    Heartbeat I’ve heard so much about

    It makes me want to scream and shout:

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh!

    Oh Oh Oh

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    Oh Oh

    It makes me wanna shout!

    It makes me wanna shout:

    This is my window! This is my chance!

    'Cause I know that there’s a heart in me!

    I feel the rumble! I feel the beating!

    And I know that there’s a heart in me at last!

    Woah (I know) Woah (That there's)

    Oh (A heart in me)

    Woah (I know) Woah (I know)

    Woah (That there's) Oh (A heart in me) Oh

    You always told me

    Love was for the hearts that could endure it

    But hearts are just ceramics

    When everyone’s holding the hammer

    So put away your jaded jargon In gravel lies the answer

    The fun is always in the fix

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    Oh Oh Oh

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    Oh Oh Oh

    Either tag me in or watch me win,

    Oh either way,

    I’ll bang this beat out loud

    'Till love’s not made of broken hearts

    And curse the man who finally

    Finds love without a scratch

    That man, he done and duped us all!

    I never will believe it! It makes me want to scream and shout:

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh!

    Oh Oh Oh

    Either tag me in or watch me win, oh

    Oh Oh It makes me wanna shout! It makes me wanna shout:

    This is my window! This is my chance! 

    'Cause I know that there’s a heart in me!

    I feel the rumble! I feel the beating!

    And I know that there’s a heart in me at last!

    Woah (I know) Woah (That there's)

    Oh (A heart in me)

    Woah (I know) Woah (I know)

    Woah (That there's) Oh (A heart in me)

    Oh

    Help me

    Sew back together this heart of mine

    I know that together, we will make me

    Beat a new heart again

    Like it, or not

    Gonna find one beating and we’re beating it and

    Like it or not

    Gonna get out the gauze and gonna patch it up quick and

    Like it or not I know there’s a heart in me!

    This is my window! This is my chance!

    ‘Cause I know that there’s a heart in me!

    I feel the rumble! I feel the beating!

    And I know that there’s a heart in me at last!

    (There’s a heart, there’s a heart in me at last!)

    Woah (I know) Woah (That there's) Oh (A heart in me)

    Woah (I know) Woah (I know)

    Woah (That there's) Oh (A heart in me)

    The Watchmaker

    I’m just a dog with a guitar,

    But you’re a match without a spark

    And while my road’s in the dead of night,

    At least my song will turn back on the light

    I’m just a dream (I’m just a dream) of someone else,

    While she’s a girl who’s lost herself

    And though one day this spell may complete, (This spell may complete)

    There’s not an ending to her sleep

    And we’re all traveling, traveling

    Down this spiral

    But big bangs turn into universes,

    Every end’s a new beginning!

    Ah!

    Oh, I could be a Watchmaker!

    And then Time can’t hold us back, oh!

    Ah!

    And you could be my heart-breaker!

    So that Time won’t seem so lonely on my own!

    I’m just a dog with a guitar,

    But he’s a tin man who’s lost his heart

    Oooo!

    And though my sun may set all too fast,

    Without love, I don’t wanna be be built to last!

    I’m just a dream of someone else,

    But you’re a toy, forgotten on the shelf 

    Ticking away in a blizzard of dust

    There’s not a soul left you can trust!

    And we’re all rambling, rambling

    Like a choir

    But if Truth, that woman’s the daughter of Time,

    I’d live on a clock, if she could be mine!

    Ah!

    Oh, I could be a Watchmaker!

    And then Time can’t hold us back, oh!

    Ah!

    And you could be my heart-breaker!

    So that Time won’t seem so lonely ON MY OWN!

    ON MY OWN!

    ON MY OWN!

    ON MY OWN!

    I’m just a dog (just a dog) with a guitar,

    Like every poet left in the dark (In the dark)

    I’ll bury every clock to pretend (Bury every clock)

    Back covers never mean the end...

    (The end is...) Woah, NOW!

    Oh, I could be a Watchmaker!

    And then Time can’t hold us back, oh!

    Oh!

    And you could be my heart-breaker!

    So that Time won’t seem so lonely on my own!

    I’m just a dog with a guitar,

    Like every poet left in the dark

    I’ll bury every clock to pretend

    Back covers never mean the end...

    The Dog House

    Thunder drums call out your name

    Searchlights turn the night to day

    I promised you won’t get away

    This world is dog-eat-dog they say, ha ha ha

    Take my love and take my heart

    Take it all, you won’t get far

    I hope your theft was worth the high

    There’s no bark worse than my bite!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    No exit left for you!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    Let’s see what you can do!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    It’s time to pay your due.

    I’m no devil, I’m no saint

    I’m just a boy you threw away

    I grant no wishes, take no pay

    I’m only here to play my game, ha ha ha

    You took my love and took my heart

    Did you know you won’t get far

    I bet the theft was worth the high

    Now, there’s no bark worse than my bite!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    No exit left for you!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    Let’s see what you can do!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!  

    And time’s run out for you.

    I don’t forgive and I don’t regret

    Time is money, and you’re in debt

    Maybe one day I’ll forget

    For now, this Dog House is your end, ha ha ha

    Oh, take my love and take my heart!

    Take it all, you won’t get far!

    I hope your theft was worth the high!

    There’s no bark worse than my bite!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    No exit left for you!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    Let’s see what you can do!

    You’re in the Dog House, honey!

    And I’ll keep the rest of you, ha ha ha

    Thank You (For Being There)

    This beat on the drum is the beat of my heart

    Pushing forth strongly and marching on, and it’s all because of you

    Throughout time and time again you were there for me when I was down

    You never asked the best of me, you always took what was left of me

    And you raised it up, got my torn down and mangled body back together

    Nothing I could do in this whole world could repay, I’m in debt

    And you would never ask of me to compensate for all the times

    I know this song’s a bit long overdue, but I’ve gotta say

    Thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    Thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    Oh when trouble’s at my door

    You are there to help me through

    And when I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

    You are there to lift me higher

    Thank you, oh thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    I can remember all of the fights, the broken glass and shattered hearts

    The fights between our egos, though really we know you were there to save me

    From the rocky path my feet were stumbling on so recklessly

    The only thing you cared about was me, and I couldn’t see

    There must have been a day or seven hundred where you cursed the stars

    For staying board this ship I sailed through frozen hell and tidal wave

    But something kept you by my side, kept my stubborn hide alive

    And after everything I’ve put you through, I’ve gotta say

    Thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    Ah, thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me 

    Oh when trouble’s at my door

    You are there to help me through

    Oh, when I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

    You are there to lift me higher

    Thank you, oh thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    Oh, I fear

    I fear the day you’ll leave me

    When you’ve finally given up

    On my hopeless heart

    Yeah

    But everyday after the next

    You’re still here by my side

    Oh, I don’t deserve you,

    Oh, I don’t deserve you

    Oh, thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    Ah, thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    Oh when trouble’s at my door

    You are there to help me through

    Oh, when I’ve fallen and I can’t get up

    You are there to lift me higher

    Thank you, oh thank you

    Thank you for being there, for being there for me

    President Of The United States Of Dance

    Muhahahaw!
    Oh!
    I’ve got intel on the inside
    Of your shaking chest
    Why keep your hips on lockdown?
    (Your hands say it all!)
    Read my body like a brail book
    Hot up on the trail
    Look! We’re acrobatic addicts
    (Between the bed posts!)

    Ha! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!
    You’re a mighty fine keeper, And one hell of a sleeper!
    Call me crazy for your bones, I’m a believer!
    Ha! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!
    Only one thing I know Is that a show’s in store
    So lift your hands up, drinks up, legs up! LET’S GO!

    C’mon c’mon, let’s stomp!
    Like there’s gold in these floorboards
    These hearts, they are all yours!

    C’mon c’mon, get down!
    Like this ceiling’s on fire
    The smoke gets us higher
    Now, who here needs a doctor?!

    Well, healthcare’s gone suckers!
    I’m the doctor!

    And every doctor needs his queen!
    So, we bow at your feet
    Hail to the chief!
    Now you’ll be:
    The President of the United States of Dance!

    I’ve hacked ballots in your favor
    Deals under the table
    Rigging rigor-mortis
    (THE DEAD’S BACK TO LIFE!)
    Acting bureaucratic addicts
    Breathing in your semantics
    Oh, isn’t it romantic
    (HOW THE WORLD NEEDS YOU NOW!)

    Ha! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!
    You’re a mighty fine keeper, And one hell of a sleeper!
    Call me crazy for your bones, I’m a believer!

    Our Time Will Come

    My ego ripped off its price tag,

    But if you still wanna pay the note:

    There’s a tyrant with a toy chest

    Who will bleed you ‘till you’re broke, broke, BROKE!

    I’ve been a runner without a race,

    Searching for my next escape

    But the exodus will take its toll,

    And I’m all out of change!

    But maybe I shouldn’t run again,

    But I won’t live my life this way

    It’s a courtroom without contrition,

    And the jury ate the gentleman!

    But from the shackles where we’re all bound now,

    And the golden dawn of a brand new day,

    This crooked crowd wants to see us fall

    So let’s give them all exactly what they don’t want!

    Let’s send the message!

    Let’s give a shout-out:

    “We are the underdogs and we,

    We are all still here!”

    Shout-out to us: who made their jokes funny!

    Shout-out to us: who never fit in boxes!

    Shout-out to all us: looking for the chance!

    Our time will come!

    Oh, shout-out to him: who broke his back trying!

    Shout-out to her: who never got the Prom Queen!

    Tables will turn, there’s no turning back now!

    Our time will come! 

    Yeah!

    Yeah, Jericho’s got some walls,

    But these are much tougher to climb

    As psychopathic pyrotechs

    Set fire to these vines!

    But from the shackles where we’re all bound now,

    And the golden dawn of a brand new day,

    Oh, reptiles in suits want to see us fall

    So, let’s give them all exactly what they don’t want!

    Let’s spread the word,

    Let’s give a shout-out:

    “We are the fallen ones and we,

    We’re ready to fly high!”

    Shout-out to us: who made their jokes funny!

    Shout-out to us: who never fit in boxes!

    Shout-out to all us: looking for the chance!

    Our time will come!

    Oh, shout-out to him: who broke his back trying!

    Shout-out to her: who never got the Prom Queen!

    Tables will turn, there’s no turning back now!

    Our time will come!

    Why are we here?!

    Just to live in misery?!

    Oh no, I don’t believe it no!

    I see the truth!

    I know what lies ahead...

    And it’s a future

    That’s not involving them!

    Shout-out to us: who made their jokes funny! 

    Shout-out to us: who never fit in boxes!

    Shout-out to all us: looking for the chance!

    Our time will come!

    Oh, shout-out to him: who broke his back trying!

    Shout-out to her: who never got the Prom Queen!

    Tables will turn, there’s no turning back now!

    Our time will come!

    Oh, shout-out to dreams: that never get broken!

    Shout-out to hearts: that always stay open!

    It’s a matter of time, there’s no turning back now!

    Our time will come!

    Instinct

    Stand back
    I'm breaking loose, gonna make a run for the hills
    Stand back
    Coming in fast, and you won't know what gave ya chills
    Get back
    Claws are all out and they're ready for the kill
    It’s time
    The night’s on, moon’s up
    And the world’s unravelling
    Now do you hear the call?
    There's a power deep down below
    And we're letting it take control
    We're gonna unleash it all
    'Cause when your heart starts racing
    A force breaks from within
    It is

    It’s the instinct!
    Feel that drum beat stomp in your shoes
    Yeah 'cause this is the instinct
    Feel that break dance work through your moves
    Yeah 'cause this is the instinct
    Feel the moonlight commandeer you 
    Show me what that is
    Let me hear you roar
    *ROAR*
    Yeah roar
    *ROAR*
    Now you're
    *YOU'RE*
    Giving into the instinct

    I'm back
    New and improved, from the fire burning in my soul
    I’m back
    And accurate, when I take aim you’re gonna know
    It’s that
    Time of the night you can go hard or you’ll go home
    Let’s go
    Night’s on, moon’s up
    And it’s all ours, grab it,
    Now let me hear that call!
    ‘Cause the clock’s run out of time
    And there’s nothing beyond the night
    Yeah we're not gonna fall
    'Cause when your heart starts racing
    A force commands you with
    It’s the instinct!

    Feel that drum beat stomp in your shoes
    Yeah 'cause this is the instinct
    Feel that break dance work through your moves
    Yeah 'cause this is the instinct
    Feel the moonlight commandeer you
    Show me what that is
    Let me hear you roar
    *ROAR*
    Yeah roar
    *ROAR*
    Now roar!
    *ROAR*
    Now give in!

    I don’t know if it’s delusion from that bright side of the moon
    Or an instinctual darkness trying to take me under too
    All I’m asking’s that you never fight the animal in you
    'Cause there’s a beast inside that’s far long overdue
    It’s the instinct!

    It's How We Do

    It’s how we do
    Stomping feet to make our own beat
    It’s how we do
    Hips that swing, we’re doing our thing 
    It’s how we do
    A brand all ours, a style with powers
    It’s how we do

    It’s how we do
    Breaking away and getting insane
    It’s how we do 
    Owning the day and running the night
    It’s how we do
    Start with the street and end with the world
    It’s how we do

    Hit it!
    Playing for keeps
    We take to the streets
    And dance
    It’s how we do
    Running this city
    Everybody with me now
    It’s how we do
    Can I get “yeah”
    Let me hear a “yeah”
    Everybody “yeah”
    It’s how we do
    All the girls and the boys
    C’mon let’s make some noise
    It’s how we do

    It’s how we do
    Pumping these speakers, dancing in sneakers
    It’s how we do
    Lighting on fire, taking us higher
    It’s how we do
    Opening ears and letting out fears
    It’s we do

    It’s how we do
    Making the planet dance with the Sun
    It’s how we do
    Tearing down walls and letting in love
    It’s how we do
Start with one voice and end with a choir
    It’s how we do

    Yeah can you feel it? The bass and the rhythm of these streets
    The beat in our hearts, all of ours, we’re dancing under the same stars
    Galactic spotlights and we’re the stage
    Each race and face we all live in the same place 
    We’re all part of the show, even though, we think we’re from different worlds, 
    But you know, there’s only one rock. And we need to rock it!
    C’mon, let this green dog show ya how. Yeah!
    Stomp your feet, feel the beat. Everyone to the streets!

    Playing for keeps
    We take to the streets
    And dance
    It’s how we do
    Running this city

    Let me hear a “yeah”
    Everybody “yeah”
    It’s how we do
    All the girls and the boys
    C’mon let’s make some noise
    It’s how we do

    Dreams that won’t sleep
    Songs that run deep
    To skies above
    Crying out for love

    Souls intertwined
    Dancing in time
    One world, one song
    There all along

    Old lands, new sounds
    In tandem now
    Many paths, one street
    Different hearts, one beat

    Thundering screams
    In synchrony
    These feet, our hands
    One voice, our band

    It’s how we do
    Singing this song and turning love on
    It’s how do
    Making our hearts beat in synchrony
    It’s how we do
    Taking the lights and sounds from all around
    And making a song of Love! Take to the streets!
    Playing for keeps
    We take to the streets
    And dance
    It’s how we do
    Running this city
    Everybody with me now
    It’s how we do
    Can I get “yeah”
    Let me hear a “yeah”

    We're Taking Back the Night

    We are warriors We are fighters
    Try to drown us
    But we’re still getting higher
    No we don’t sweat bullets we give ‘em 
    Gonna get back on this horse when we’re finished

    Try and chew us up Try and spit us out
    But you’ll never come close
    You’ll be eating rocks
    Cause we only sing anthems we’ve written
    And tonight this is our new beginning

    Turn up the black light
    Bass pumping all night
    Time to ignite it’s time to take it all
    We’re not the Lonely Hearts
    We are the Warriors
    This is our fight yeah we’re taking back control
    We’re taking back the night, ah ah ah
    We’re taking back the night, ah ah ah

    We are unbreakable We are survivors
    And we’re not moving
    As the flames get higher
    No we don’t sweat bullets we give ‘em 
    Gonna get back on this horse when we’re finished

    Hear our battle cry Hear our thunder
    Won’t be no white flags
    You won’t take us under
    Cause we only sing anthems we’ve written
    And tonight this will be our new beginning

    East coast whiskey dreams
    Can you feel it
    Rooftop galaxies
    Breathe it in yeah
    Wide heart vacancies
    Can you feel it
    Choir hymns of screams
    Let it in yeah
    Brimming energies
    Can you feel it
    Breaking at the seams
    Can you feel it
    Transcontinent teams
    Can you feel it

    This Land is Ours

    I’m coming to take you home
    Back to this land of ours
    I don’t know why you wanted to go
    Far from this land of ours
    I may be wrong but all I know’s
    You’ll miss this land of ours
    Yeah, I’m coming to take you home
    Back to this land of ours

    What can I do to change your mind
    Back to this land of ours?
    Where those fire pits light the skyline
    Here in this land of ours
    Where in the shacks we live like kings
    Yeah in this home of ours
    Where our voices shake these rooftops
    Because this land is ours!

    Where fire pits light the skyline
    Because this land is ours!
    Where in shacks we live like kings
    Because this land is ours!
    Where our voices shake these rooftops
    Because this land is ours!
    Shining lighters that can beat the stars
    Because this land is ours!

    Oh why did you wanna go
    Far from this land of ours
    A new number, new name, new life
    Far from this land of ours
    What can I do to change your mind
    About this land of ours
    I know one day you’ll wanna come home
    Back to this land of ours

    I’m coming to take you home
    Back to this land of ours
    Where the highways cannot find us
    Over in this land of ours
    Where the mountains keep us secret
    Here in this land of ours
    Far away from the neon and stone
    Oh why did you have to go

    I’m wondering
    Fill me in
    Cause on a whim
    Seems as if you woke up and packed your bags
    I don’t get why
    Please clarify
    Oh, was it I who did you wrong and put you on the brink?
    Of misery
    Insanity
    I didn’t mean
    All I wanted was you and all of you
    But still I’m guessing
    Are you’re testing?
    If so I’ve learned my lesson
    Come back to this land of ours

    I’m coming to take you home
    (Back to this land of ours)
    Where those fire pits light the skyline
    (Here in this land of ours)
    Where in the shacks we live like kings
    (Yeah in this home of ours)
    Where fireflies paint the heavens
    (Here in this land of ours)
    Far from the neon and stone
    (Back to this land of ours)
    Where the highways cannot reach us
    (Over in this land of ours)
    Where the mountains keep us secret
    (Yeah in this home of ours)
    We need your voice to shake these rooftops
    Yeah let your voice help shake these rooftops

    Let’s go!

    Where fire pits light the skyline
    Because this land is ours!
    Where in shacks we live like kings
    Because this land is ours!
    Where our voices shake these rooftops
    Because this land is ours!
    Shining lighters that can beat the stars
    Because this land is ours!

    Brush Yourself Off

    This is the end
    The door won’t open again
    Another key falls off the chain
    The best of enemies part ways
    Better than we did today
    Some goodbyes you shouldn’t say
    The white flag was raised
    But they shot it down in flames
    And let the ashes rain fire

    But you’re dressed in white
    Because the darkner the night
    Means the brighter your light
    Can shine on through

    You gotta brush yourself off
    Pick up the pieces
    Dust yourself
    Get off your knees and
    Brush yourself off
    Forget your weakness
    Say your peace and
    Brush yourself
    Pick up the pieces
    Dust yourself
    Find what you need and
    Send yourself off
    Off on your way then
    Say your piece and begin again

    Back two steps and forward three
    Raise a new flag, alert the calvary
    Because the battle’s far from over
    Nothing ever stays the same
    Last year’s fail is this year’s fame
    Uncertainty is always certain
    They may have locked all thier doors
    And barred every stain-glass window
    We’ll make our own way through the darkness

    Because you’re dressed in white
    And the darker the night
    Means the brighter your light
    Can shine on through

    The Best Thing That Happened

    Need a minute of your time While the moment’s mine, gotta find
    How I’m gonna tell you
    That the two of us, you and me We’re the best team
    And we’ve got no competition
    It’s true Me and you
    We’re the Bonny & Clyde, Two of a kind, 
    Yeah the dynamic duo around
    Enemy of the state, too late Better pray
    Cause the both of us run this whole town
    Wouldn’t You agree

    That our world comes alive The stars in the sky all align
    When we’re together
    And the thunder is rolling Heavens are storming when life
    Tries to separate us
    But they can’t keep this apart
    Don’t they know

    We’re the best thing, very best thing
    I’ll attest it, the very best thing
    That could happen to this planet
    Yeah I swear it
    Oh, don’t you know
    We’re the best thing, very best thing
    No contesting, the very best thing
    And we won’t be taken for granted
    Now take my hand and
    Let’s rule the world
    Yeah we’re
    The best thing that happened!

    Now I’m thinking how it’d be Without you and me, I don’t know
    What this world would look like Would the planet keep spinning
    People living If so, I bet it wouldn’t be the same
    It’s true Without me and you
    I bet that sky would be green Birds would live in the sea
    And the mountains would be flipped upside down
    And the sun, the moon, and the stars They’d be around at all hours
    The rooster wouldn’t know when to sing
    But what if We we’re still here

    Yeah we’d take back it all Right every wrong, here we are
    And we’re gonna save the world
    Birds back in the sky, Mountains upright, you and I
    Just the way it all should be
    ‘Cause this world needs you and me
    Yeah, don’t they know

  • 04:21 Lyrics
    Incoherent

    I walk this brick road as a loner
    With no one here it sure feels colder
    Along here my voice travels for hours
    And yet it is the only one that sounds
    I beckon for the trees to talk back
    To whisper signs that I am not daft
    To show me that my song’s not in vain
    To show me that somebody listens

    Oh can you hear me
    Oh can you understand
    Oh are you listening
    When I say

    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    These won’t make sense to you
    But if you only knew
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    What else is there left to do
    So these words make sense to you?

    Tell me that you feel the same way
    Like you’re in your own town and nobody knows your name
    Yeah you’re in a house that should house you well
    Though you know you’d much better off in Hell.

    So you bolt right out your door and you never look back
    Never look back, but you always look back
    And a woman with your eyes says “Why daughter why?”
    Then you cry, then you cry, then you cry:

    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    These words don’t hold their truth
    When no one understands you
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    What else is there left to do
    Before...

    Bullets may fall before the pen
    But I won’t miss again
    Whose words will stay in the end
    And which will lie with their dead?
    I will show you what I mean

    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    Bee Sae Bai Rah Bah Doo
    These words, they hold their truth
    Now that you’ll hear them too 
    These days, lies top the truth
    These days, lies crop the youth
    We lay eyes at the moon
    And pray The Sky’s not the roof

    We pray The Sky’s not the roof
    We pray The Sky’s not the roof
    We pray The Sky’s not the roof
    We pray The Sky’s not the roof

    Jack of Hearts

    Play with me a game my child
    One with a single rule but that won't be easy
    Find a match for this heart of mine
    A synchronized cornerstone to fill the void in me

    All you have to do is just embark
    On a lonely drawn-out quest for my own reconstruction
    And the path may tire and fight you back as you wander farther and farther onward 
    Ooo
    Ooo

    But the road is not the hardest part it's my heart
    Because a match for me is to match the snowflakes
    My heart it beats an unusual time
    An unorganized fractal complexity

    Can you hear the tempo in my chest
    Fluctuating flutters with their own methodical madness
    No it's not sort of beat to lead
    All the choirs of angels' symphonies

    But all I need's someone else's heart
    All I need's just one human spark
    All I need is someone's redemption, perfection, to fix the puzzle

    I will wait I will wait
    For your heart to find mine
    I will wait I will wait
    If it means for all time
    I will wait I will wait
    For your heart to find mine
    I will wait I will wait
    If it means for all time
    I will wait

    Play with me a game, my child
    Find me the broken-beat heart of whom I speak of
    I know it sounds like a doomed request
    But I feel it's there, that heart, to fill the void in me

    It's another beat that finds my ear
    Beyond lakes, and mountains, traveling wide, to hypnotize me
    But it's only echoes ringing in my head
    Oh if only, the heart, the owner could be right here beside me

    Cause all I need is that person's heart
    All I need is their human spark
    All I need is one last redemption, perfection, to fix the puzzle

    I will wait I will wait
    For your heart to find mine
    I will wait I will wait
    If it means for all time
    I will wait I will wait
    For your heart to find mine
    I will wait I will wait
    If it means for all time
    I will wait

    Oh I will wait Oh I will wait
    For your heart to find mine
    Oh I will wait Oh I will wait
    If it means for all time
    Oh I will wait oh I will wait
    For your heart to find mine
    I will wait I will wait
    If it means for all time
    I will wait

    I will wait, my heart it will wait

    Our March

    Darling your head is spinning
    The trains down below move slower than you do
    I know there's weakness in forgiving
    But the world up above's doing all it can for you

    Keep still, lay your hands 'side the corners of my chest
    Let them feel my tranquil heart,
    Make my steady beat your own
    For you will find solace once the panicking subsides
    And your voice comes back to life
    Now that fear has lost control

    Tell me, what’s the use in cowarding, submitting to defeat
    When the answer lies just ahead, and your world’s an easy fix
    Tell me, why give up the journey when you’ve yet to tie your shoes
    Saddle up, fasten in, and we’re ready to begin our march

    We march
    To the beat of the drum in our hearts
    We march
    On a path that will end in the stars
    It's our life
    It's our time
    And we fly
    Higher than skies will allow
    And we're proud
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    And we march on

    March on, down this road, as it winds unevenly
    Under twilight, sun and moon
    Over rough and jagged brick
    And we will, reach the end, not today but one day soon
    Where we’ll rest our weary heads
    And we’ll call that place our home

    In the meantime, I will find a way to keep this fire alive
    Though I’m not one for promises, I’m quite the fan of dreams
    ‘Cause there’s no point in the finish line if you won’t believe at all
    Saddle up, fasten in, and we’re all continuing our march

    We march
    On the thundering winds of our song
    We march
    To the beat in our hearts all along
    It's our life
    It's our time
    And we fly
    Higher than skies will allow
    And we're proud
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    We march

    Darling, come on, the crowds are waiting
    It’s time now for the march, and we need you with us
    There’s no turning back, a new life’s up ahead
    We can face this together, lock your arm in mine
    And we’ll march

  • 06:08 Lyrics
    Till the Music Stops

    Count the stars in the sky
    Each its own lullaby
    Half are already dust
    Symbols of wanderlust

    Every light up there’s got its own clock, yes I know
    But I don’t mind
    ‘Cause your love takes me far from this rock, far from time
    With your hand in mine

    Just don’t let go

    Racing hearts, racing minds
    Faster than dragonflies
    Fairy tales, wishing wells
    Can’t compete with Love’s spell

    When together our hearts they ignite, and we fly
    Beyond the stars
    If this moment is all that we’ve got, do or die
    We’ll make it ours

    Because all I need
    Is you with me
    Till the music stops

    Oohh
    Oohh
    Stay here with me
    Till the music stops
    Oohh
    Oohh
    Lay here with me
    Stay here with me
    Till the music stops

    I could fall, I could die
    I could never say goodbye
    Time controls, Time consumes
    Time’s a fight I’ll gladly lose

    Because every sand in that glass, I want with you
    And I don’t mind
    If tomorrow this dream it collapsed, as long as I
    Have your hand in mine

    Just don’t let go

    Take the leap, dive with me
    Into Time’s deceptive stream
    Currents string us along
    Through the tempos of Life’s song

    And I haven’t the slightest clue where the water leads
    But it led me to you
    Yeah let Time do just what it wants, all I want is you
    To face it with me

    Because all I need
    Is you with me
    Till the music stops

    Oohh
    Oohh
    Stay here with me
    Till the music stops
    Oohh
    Oohh
    Lay here with me
    Stay here with me
    Till the music stops

    Needle on vinyl’s edge
    Final revolutions
    Stay with me, here and now
    ‘Till the music’s over

    Promise me when it stops
    We’ll still have our hands locked
    When Silence takes over us
    We’ll still hear the last word

    LOVE

    Back seat, where we meet. Then I play a track of Creed.

    And I don’t want a cure, I want more!

    Make me your scandal

    Love below the waist. Let’s finish the chase!

    Work your moves on this akita

    I’ll make you a believer

    ‘Cause the only truth to my name is that 

    NIIC guys finish last!

     

    Last, like the bottles we’ll never run out of

    ‘Cause this party runs every city and town

    And I’m wearing the crown to this fur underground

    So yeah don’t tread on me

    Keep your hands on my waist like you’re paying my price

    And it’s you and me till the gun powder ignites

    There’s no ending in sight like one thousand one nights

    So let’s go all night

     

    ‘Cause tonight, we’re counting down, come and give me your hand

    Time for our revolution!

    Just you and me, and our paws to the walls

     

    Sing it with me!

    Come on let’s get furry!

    Do What Feels Good

    You hear my voice, do you copy?

    Tune into my signal, I’ll patch you in.

    I hacked this station on the radio.

    Fly words of love like jet planes.

     

    ‘Cause I know they leave you doubting but the truth of it is:

    Love’s what you make it.

    They’ll try and keep you down, but this is your life, not theirs.

    Don’t complicate it. Hear what I’m saying: C’mon and

     

    Hey oh

    Put your hands in the air like a rainbow.

    Jump off the walls like a disco.

    We’ll shine like a light show.

    Hey! We’re taking over.

    Drop your moves and show ‘em!

    Hey oh

    This night’s not getting any longer

    And we’re not getting any younger

    C’mon let’s live it up now

    Live life the way we should

    Do what feels good

     

    You hear that static on the airwaves?

    They’re trying to break the sound we’re making.

    But they’re gonna have to try a little harder

    To keep us from shaking all their rooftops

     

    And I know they leave you doubting, but the truth of it is:

    We’re gonna make it.

    Yeah, they’ll try and keep you down, but this is your life, not theirs.

    Don’t complicate it. Hear what I’m saying: C’mon and

     

    Hey oh

    Put your hands in the air like a rainbow.

    Jump off the walls like a disco.

    We’ll shine like a light show.

    Hey! We’re taking over.

    Drop your moves and show ‘em!

    Hey oh

    This night’s not getting any longer

    And we’re not getting any younger

    C’mon let’s live it up now

    Live life the way we should

    Do what feels good

     

    ‘Cause it don’t matter what you are, what I am, or what anyone is

    We all lead different lives, and that should be the way it is

    Though it doesn’t make sense, the census says we should put our two cents

    In on someone else’s business.

    Princess, we all moved ‘way from the monarchs,

    ‘Cause hearts, all of ours, beat at different rhythms,

    Schisms that you try to make between love, religion, lifestyle? Go wild!

    There’s too many million, billion people in this world

    For you to try and box up, it ain’t gonna work

    You’re gonna fall from your horse without a parachute

    Best contribute to the future ‘cause it’s coming for you.

    But what do I care? Stay in place and stare.

    My life is my life. Same with you. No one dare.

    Flick the switch on this table playing tracks that are able

    Keeping beats of love alive. C’mon let me see you try!

     

    Hey oh

    Put your hands in the air like a rainbow.

    Jump off the walls like a disco.

    We’ll shine like a light show.

    Hey! We’re taking over.

    Drop your moves and show ‘em!

    Hey oh

    This night’s not getting any longer

    And we’re not getting any younger

    C’mon let’s live it up now

    Live life the way we should

    Do what feels good

    (T.B.U.Y.G.F.U.)

    (T.B.U.Y.G.F.U.)

    You wanna break my heart?!

    You wanna cheat on me and walk out of here?!
    Well, the name’s NIIC:
    So try me, bitch!

     

    High, I’m higher than the sky

    You weren’t in bed tonight

    And you never told me why

    High, eleven shots too high

    Heart’s pounding all night

    So I take a little drive

    Drive, I drive up to your car

    Your car that’s parked

    Far, far away, right on his lawn

    Drive, I drive my foot through the door

    My fist through his face and yours

    Don’t cheat on me anymore

     

    Ya don’t know what it costs

    (You can’t pay the fine)
    Ya don’t know what you’ve lost

    (Pay up for the crime)

    ‘Cause honey, I’m the boss

    (There’s no next time)

    This is not the way to break up,

    Make up, pay up now!

     

    I’m sorry you thought this was goodbye

    And maybe you might learn in time

    The lesson I can’t stress enough:

    Try and break up? You’ll get fucked up!

     

    Don’t think you’ll ever get the shot to walk away from me!

    Don’t think that it’s all over cause you forgot where you sleep!

    (Y.G.F.U.)

    There’s no good reason that you’re pleasing someone else tonight!

    Wanna see a broken heart? Try and break up, you’ll get fucked up!

    (T.B.U.Y.G.F.U.)

    You’ll get fucked up! Hey!

     

    Why, yeah why you gotta cry?

    If anyone it’s I

    That should lay right down and die

    Why? You are your own demise

    It’s you with all the lies

    Sneaking off with other guys

    Bye, you wanna say goodbye?

    Well, honey, do it right

    Don’t just run off in the night

    Bye, you’re realizing what this means:

    There’s no good apologies

    I’m taking you down with me

     

    Ya don’t know what it costs

    (You can’t pay the fine)
    Ya don’t know what you’ve lost

    Knock, Knock

    I’ve got the sub bass turned up

    And it shakes this club like nobody does

    I’ve got you a whole new sound

    Gonna get this town jumping off, off the ground. Hey!

     

    Yeah you can’t blame me for the way that I move. Like I do.

    And you can’t blame me for the way that I talk

    I’ma chalk it up to purely innocent jealousy

    ‘Cause I’ma here to be me. And you can take it or leave. That’s right

    Not gonna fight it if you walk out on me, baby.

    With or without you, I’ma flying it free. Honestly

    I hope you’re fronting and we’ve go, got all night

    ‘Cause I can keep this defense, but, but you’ve got me obsessed.

     

    You’re all I want

    (You think I’m not your type)

    You turn me on

    (But I can change your mind)

    Knock, knock, knock it ‘till you try it!

     

    Hey why don’t ya come over?

    Hey get around my shoulders

    Don’t ever look back. Don’t, don’t, don’t

    Knock, knock, knock it ‘till you try it

    You can open my heart 

    You can take me apart

    But you can’t, but you can’t, but you can’t, no, oh, oh

    Knock it till you try it

     

    You’re cool in your fresh new kicks

    But they’re no good if you won’t dance to my mix

    No use trying’a fight this sound

    When you’re one in the crowd. Are you in, in or out?

     

    Yeah you can’t blame me for the beat on this track. Attack

    All you want. NIIC keeps ya come, coming back.

    It’s that time of the night when we get out on the floor

    And win this club like a war. Yeah what ya what, waiting for?

     

    You’re all I want

    (You think I’m not your type)

    You turn me on

    (But I can change your mind)

    Just call me up

    (Don’t-don’t write me off don’t)

    Knock, knock, knock it ‘till you try it!

    All We Need is Distance

    Craving your love again, I’m in over my head, 

    Over my head

    It’s bad enough you went and lead me on

    But then the bug, it bit you, too

    You turned around and said, “I love you”

    But what am I supposed to do if I never meant it?

     

    Never thought it’d be like this when I got your kiss, 

    Got your kiss

    And now you’re always waiting on my call

    Suffocating, I’ve had enough

    But still I’m craving all your love

    ‘Cause finally I got what I want and I can’t give it up

     

    Babe I’m blind, I’m blind

    To what’s right before my eyes

    I take a step back

    And that’s when I realize:

     

    That all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    Because my heart on my sleeve’s got you falling for me

    But I’m in too deep you won’t let me be

    I’m sorry, baby,

    All we really need is distance

     

    You keep blowing up my phone with that lame ringtone, 

    I hate that ringtone

    But not as much as these jeans you make me wear

    Gotta wait on you day and night

    And when I’m not, we’re in a fight

    Don’t matter which one of us is right, I’m the one that’s sorry

    I can’t even play this tune I wrote about you, 

    And play it for you

    Without you thinking I was singing ‘bout someone else

    Your jealously puts me on a train

    A thousand miles the other way

    Out of sight and out of mind and I will be just fine

     

    ‘Cause all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    We’re like the night and the day with the games we play

    Better walk away now or stay this way

    Baby, I mean it

    All we really need is distance

     

    Oh we’re blind, we’re blind

    To what’s right before our eyes

    Take a step back, take a step back, take a step back

    And then it’s all we’ll realize 

     

    That all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    (Distance from my heart)

    Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    (Oh)

    Because my heart on my sleeve’s got you falling for me

    But I’m in too deep you won’t let me be

    I’m sorry, baby,

    It’s all we really need!

    ‘Cause all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    (Ah)

    Yeah all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    (All we need is a little distance!)

    We’re like the night and the day with the games we play

    Better walk away now or stay this way

    Baby, I mean it

    All we really needed

    Yeah, all we ever, all we really need is a little distance

    There's No Good in a Goodbye

    (There’s no good in a goodbye)

    NOOOOO!

     

    I’m trying to forget your promise

    The one where you and I’d be honest

    I hate the way you love me

    You play my heart like a broken record

    Skipping beats and turning me over

    I hate the way you love me

     

    I’m falling again. The things that you said they got me up all night

    First you say that you love me, then it’s all done, we both need to stop trying

    I don’t know which way’s up or down, in my head or out-loud, I’m losing my mind!

    There’s no good way to end it this time. There’s no good in a goodbye.   

     

    No I can’t. No I won’t.

    Let you hold me for one more night

    When I know that the two of us together ain’t right

    It’s alright. All I want is love, not a lie.

    There’s no good in a goodbye

    No I won’t, no I can’t

    Understand why you keep breaking my heart

    But I’ll keep on loving ‘till someone can heal these scars

    I’ll be fine. You and I were my favorite lie.

    There’s no good in a goodbye.

     

    (There’s no good in a goodbye)

     

    Babe this love of our’s contagious

    It’s fading but we’re trying to save this

    I hate the way you love me

    Believe me I give second chances

    But we’re repeating all these dances

    I hate the way you love me

     

    I’m stuck in a crossroads. Never felt lost like this in my whole life

    I keep wanting you back. I give you some slack, but we barely get by

    I don’t know which way’s up or down, in my head or out-loud, I’m losing my mind!

    There’s no good way to end it this time. There’s no good in a goodbye.

     

    No I can’t. No I won’t.

    Let you hold me for one more night

    When I know that the two of us together ain’t right

    It’s alright. All I want is love, not a lie.

    There’s no good in a goodbye

    No I won’t, no I can’t

    Understand why you keep breaking my heart

    But I’ll keep on loving ‘till someone can heal these scars

    I’ll be fine. You and I were my favorite lie.

    There’s no good in a goodbye.

     

    (Ad-lib)

    All I want is love

     

    There’s no good in a goodbye.

    No I can’t. No I won’t.

    Let you hold me for one more night

    When I know that the two of us together ain’t right

    It’s alright. All I want is love, not a lie.

    There’s no good in a goodbye

    Unleashed

    Every step you take forward brings you back to the start

    Everybody moves forward while your legs fall apart

    Don’t give up yet, kid your time’s bout to come

    Why give in to them, when a new battle’s on the horizon? 

    And that’s the game that you’re gonna win

     

    Every step you take backward brings you back to the start

    Now I know it’s insane, but you’re gonna play a different part

    Take a new path from the over-beaten trail

    And you’ll find out, that you weren’t meant to fail

    Just sidetracked, from the game that you’re gonna win

    Yeah, you’re gonna win.

    (Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one)

     

    Do you hear the thunder

    Coming up from under

    From way down in your soul, yeah?

    Now it’s time to show them you!

    Let them hear your thunder

    Shake them like no other

    Level all their walls and

    Leave them in applause 

    Yeah I, I want to see you unleashed!

    (Ah)

    I want to see you unleashed!

    See you unleashed!

    And together, we’ll reach the stars!

     

    Every new day that comes seems darker than the one before

    Like its shutting you out and boarding up every door

    Don’t give up yet, life’s a test in disguise

    Battle of wills, and you’ve just gotta survive

    ‘Till the dawn breaks, and that’s the only game left to win

     

    Now I know they’ve convinced you need someone to help you stand

    But I know that the truth is, power’s always in your hand

    This is your world, if they like it or not

    You can change it, not the way that you thought

    But a new one. Show the world that you’re gonna win.

    Yeah, you’re gonna win.

    (Eight, seven, six, five, four, three)

     

    Do you hear the thunder

    Coming up from under

    From way down in your soul, yeah?

    Now it’s time to show them you!

    Let them hear your thunder

    Shake them like no other

    Level all their walls and

    Leave them in applause 

    Yeah I, I want to see you unleashed!

    (Ah)

    I want to see you unleashed!

    See you unleashed!

    And together, we’ll reach the stars!

     

    Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one

    Wait, heaven’s next. Fly towards thee new sun.

    Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one

    Shake heretics. Life’s core seeks true love. 

    Do you hear that thunder?

    Coming up from under

    Let them hear your thunder

    Move mountains with your thunder

    I want to see you unleashed

     

    Do you hear the thunder

    Coming up from under

    From way down in your soul, yeah?

    Now it’s time to show them you!

    Let them hear your thunder

    Shake them like no other

    Level all their walls and

    Leave them in applause 

    Yeah I, I want to see you unleashed!

    (Ah)

    I want to see you unleashed!

    See you unleashed!

    And together, we’ll reach the stars!

    In Love With the DJ

    DJ turn up the bass

    Crank all the lights up in this place

    Spotlight over your face

    Yeah you’re the one I’m gonna chase 

    DJ crank up the light

    We’re gonna shake this town tonight

    DJ turn up the track

    By the end of the night I’ma be on my back

     

    Addictive dynamite
    Commando of the night

    That DJ’s in my sight

    Got control of my mind

    Grip on that multitrack

    Love like a spinal tap

    It’s time for my attack

    I ain’t ever holding back

     

    The tracks you’re spinning got me in a bitter predicament:

    Eyes hit me ‘round the room. But all I want is you.

    Is it the bass or playing chase that makes my heart wanna race?

    Or want what I can’t have? I need ya bad.

    This club’s on fire but it’s not enough

    Gotta get higher ‘cause I’m in love with the DJ

     

    DJ turn up the bass

    Crank all the lights up in this place

    Spotlight over your face

    Yeah you’re the one I’m gonna chase 

    DJ crank up the light

    We’re gonna shake this town tonight

    DJ turn up the track

    By the end of the night I’ma be on my back

     

    Break beats on every tile

    I’ll kill you with a smile

    This love it catches fire

    Overloading every wire

    I’ll be your engineer

    Make your love my career

    Your heart I’ll commandeer

    Put ya on a new frontier

     

    The tracks you’re spinning got me in a bitter predicament:

    Eyes hit me ‘round the room. But all I want is you.

    Is it the bass or playing chase that makes my heart wanna race?

    Or want what I can’t have? I need ya bad.

    This club’s on fire but it’s not enough

    Gotta get higher ‘cause I’m in love with the DJ

     

    DJ turn up the bass

    Crank all the lights up in this place

    Spotlight over your face

    Yeah you’re the one I’m gonna chase 

    DJ crank up the light

    We’re gonna shake this town tonight

    DJ turn up the track

    By the end of the night I’ma be on my back

    Make Me Your Beat

    You  

    What I want is you

    And you look my way, too

    Out of this whole room

    You

    I don’t know your name

    But I need a new game

    And you’re looking to play.

     

    So I cross the club like a game of dare.

    And you follow along, so Isay “Hi There.”

    But you play it like a puzzle. Now you got me scared

    ‘Cause you turn the other way, and I’m thinking “No fair.”

    Then a hot shot comes, now he’s talking trash.

    I say, “Back off! I’m NIIC.” He says, “Nice guys finish last.”

    But that’s cool, ‘cause you left your trail

    This ship has sailed, I’ma gonna getcha now.

     

    Oh, oh, you’re just what I like

    Oh, oh, you’re all mine tonight

    Come get me, baby, lock me in your sight.

    Your love is what I move to. Just make me your beat.

    Oh, oh, we’ll be up all night

    Oh, oh, we’ll forget the light

    Come get me, baby, I’ma make you mine

    Your love is what I move to. Just make me your beat.

     

    You

    I’m gonna find you

    ‘Cause I know that it’s true

    That you want me to

    You

    You left me your mark

    This game’s only started

    I’m not finished with you

     

    So I follow your beat through neon lights

    But I’m falling behind, so you keep me in your sights

    Now I’m getting closer, you’re such a tease

    ‘Cause you’re ‘bout to make me drop  down on my knees

    Yeah you’re clever stringing me along like that

    But it won’t end well ‘cause NIIC keeps ya coming back.

    And guess what? I’ve found you, my dear

    The chase ends here, I’ma gonna getcha now.

     

    Oh, oh, you’re just what I like

    Oh, oh, you’re all mine tonight

    Come get me, baby, lock me in your sight.

    Your love is what I move to. Just make me your beat.

    Oh, oh, we’ll be up all night

    Oh, oh, we’ll forget the light

    Come get me, baby, I’ma make you mine

    Your love is what I move to. Just make me your beat.

     

    You  

    What I want is you

    And you look my way, too

    Out of this whole room

    You

    I don’t know your name

    But I need a new game

    And you’re looking to play.

    You

    I’m gonna find you

    ‘Cause I know that it’s true

    That you want me to

    You

    You left me your mark

    Now come take my heart

    Yeah make me your beat

     

    Oh, oh, you’re just what I like

    Oh, oh, you’re all mine tonight

    Come get me, baby, lock me in your sight.

    Your love is what I move to. Just make me your beat.

    Oh, oh, we’ll be up all night

    Oh, oh, we’ll forget the light

    Come get me, baby, I’ma make you mine

    Your love is what I move to. Just make me your beat.

    Don’t think that you’ll run circles ‘round me

    Yeah just ‘cause ya want it don’t mean ya got it

    You can burn up this pavement and blaze a trail

    But you’ll fail tryna overlap me

    I’ll let ya down easy before ya miss me

    You can try, but you’ll never catch me!

     

    Your fight’s a losing battle

    Upstream without a paddle

    Give up now and maybe that’ll

    Be the last time we’ll need to have this

     

    Talk, talk, don’t wanna hear your talk

    Pack your bags and I’ll see you off

    So long! Try not to get lost

    One day, you’ll learn to crawl before you walk

     

    Wanna try again?

    Still I bet your in over your head

    Tryna run with the giants

    We’ll letcha go quiet

    C’mon, lemme see ya fight!

     

    Tie up your laces and run on my track

    Don’t think that you’ll run circles ‘round me

    Yeah just ‘cause ya want it don’t mean ya got it

    You can try, but you’ll never catch me!

    You can burn up this pavement and blaze a trail

    But you’ll fail tryna overlap me

    I’ll let ya down easy before ya miss me

    You can try, but you’ll never catch me!

    Arcade Desire

    Baby our love’s like an NES:

    An 8-bit game and a soundtrack we can dance to.

     

    This love is probably in my head and it’s a long-shot

    But if there’s any hope I’m right, babe, I can’t stop

    They’re in my head, the things you said, they put me on top

    But you keep leaving me guessing if this thing’s real or not

     

    And well I’m, the kinda guy, on the fly, to wait in line for your hand

    Read mixed, messages, tell my friends. All of them shake their heads.

    Maybe, I’m crazy, probably, but I believe it’s true

    These eyes of ours say words we’d only speak in silent rooms.

     

    And I don’t need a secret power-up to get to your heart.

    Fire a hidden weapon or a Game Shark.

    It’s the final battle. It don’t matter how many times.

    Yeah I’ll save and reload, save and reload ‘till your mine.

     

    Baby, your love is an adventure

    And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

    Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

    ‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

    Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

    Storm that castle and set it on fire.

    And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

    You are my arcade desire.

     

    Baby our love’s like an NES:

    An 8-bit game and a soundtrack we can dance to.

     

    Sometimes I wish love was a level in an arcade

    With a control stick and the buttons I know how to play

    And like a pro I stop and start again and save my place

    But there’s no player’s guide out there ‘bout how to beat your game

     

    And well I’m the kinda guy, with a mind that never tried keeping calm

    I loose sleep tryna keep this belief that you’re thinking ‘bout me

    Maybe, I’m crazy probably but I believe it’s true

    These eyes of ours say words we’d only speak in silent rooms.

     

    And I don’t need a secret power-up to get to your heart.

    Fire a hidden weapon or a Game Shark.

    It’s the final battle. It don’t matter how many times.

    Yeah I’ll save and reload, save and reload ‘till your mine.

     

    Baby, your love is an adventure

    And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

    Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

    ‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

    Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

    Storm that castle and set it on fire.

    And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

    You are my arcade desire.

     

    Because baby, your love is an adventure

    And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

    Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

    ‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

    Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

    Storm that castle and set it on fire.

    And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.

    You are my arcade desire.

    Because baby, your love is an adventure

    And it’s all mine at the end of the game.

    Don’t matter how many levels, it’s just a matter of time

    ‘Till I’m in your sight. Are you ready to play?

    Because baby, baby, we’ll go out with a bang.

    Storm that castle and set it on fire.

    And I’ll reset, reset before it’s Game Over.
