Jetfuel 02:57
JET FUEL (music & lyrics by Skookum) You’re my lady. I’m your lover! Don’t you know girl? There ain’t no other! You’re my Jet Fuel You’re givin’ me a heavy load! Grab my stick; we’re flyin’ high Leaving smoke rings in the sky The kinda heights that come with real JET FUEL You’re my captain! I’m your crew! I’d really like to board you. But can you handle gallons of my JET FUEL? So let’s get sexy… Sky's the Limit! Ride my Jet Seat, C’mon get in it! You’re my Jet Fuel You’re givin’ me a heavy load! CHORUS I love when you go down~! Gonna do wild things, Gonna earn my wings! Gonna make you sing. Till my ejection seat springs! You’re my Jet Fuel You’re givin’ me a heavy load!

Pleasure Cruz Cruisin town in my ’69, Fetchin the ladies with my moonshine, Drivin slow cool and virile, Here I come with my big smile It’s a … Pleasure Cruz It’s a … Pleasure Cruz Sirens are wailing, it’s the boys in blue I already know what I’m gonna do Flash ‘em a smile with my gold tooth Officer I’m tellin you the WHOLE truth! It’s a … Pleasure Cruz It’s a … Pleasure Cruz I don’t like authority, I don’t like to lose My only escape is a Pleasure Cruise We’’ve ALL got our problems And I’m not in the mood, My only escape is a Pleasure Cruise Call it a lifestyle or attitude I like to be rude, screwed ‘n tattooed Cruisin thru town feelin’ fertile, Here I come with my big smile

CREEPIN BLUES (The DOOM GLOOM BOOM BOOM) It’s a duck & cover fest I won’t wake up and I won’t get dressed, I’m low on life but it’s a good thing, What I need is a really good beating Experts tell me my heart’s-still beating BOOM BOOM There’s a pounding in my chest. Then it goes BOOM I feel sorry for myself and I can’t stop thinking, Is this fear? Or is this fear? I feel sorry for myself… Is this fear? Or is this fear? My mind creeps in blue and I can’t stop thinking I’m vindicated now I won’t give in and I won’t allow, But the pressure breaks me in I haven’t moved since the great chagrin So I’ll punch fist to sky; break up all the DOOM, GLOOM A tear falls from my eye – splash landing BOOM CHORUS I wish that I could sell the rights To the drama’s that I live thru every night, But I kicked my television in When trouble started brewin’ up on CNN Youth movement tears down walls . . . BOOM BOOM They’re rioting in malls – Hand bag goes BOOM! We feel sorry for ourselves and we can’t stop thinking, Is this fear? Or is this fear? Do you feel sorry for yourself? Is this fear? Or is this fear? The mind creeps in blue and it won’t stop

Aydan's Song 04:30
Aydan’s Song Looks like we made it, beautiful son, I hope we’ll make it, Just hang on tight to me, life’s just begun. There has been and will be... a lot of firsts The firsts for you, the firsts for us will be the first of many CHORUS¬ You’re my flesh, you’re my blood… You’ve changed the way I see things You’re my heart, you’re my soul… You’ll never be alone You’re my flesh, you’re my blood… I never thought I could feel this way You’re my heart, you’re my soul… I'll never let you go One time, one moment … one life, one day, One dream, one chance… and I don’t to waste a minute or lose a day. Fighting inside to have free reign… to play and laugh. Being young, being happy, being safe. CHORUS Bridge: I look into your eyes And I wanna cry I see you cry I wanna make it all right

Growing Up’s a Bitch! Lyrics by Cory Van Ieperen Growing up’s a bitch! X3 I’m so done with high school, I’m fed up with house rules, I’m on my own that’s cool, But I’m living on cat food, I’ve got an Xbox… it’s down at the pawn shop It’s a present from Mom and Pop, But I’ll get it back! I promise! Chorus I’m gonna call in sick, stay home and get wasted I’m gonna sit here, get completely shit-faced-ed! I’m gonna call in sick, stay home and get wasted Cuz don’t ya know kids?!? Growing up’s a bitch!?!? My biggest frustration, To pursuit of success? I lack motivation, My brain’s on vacation! Well, I can’t please them all, It’s my last curtain call Well if it is then dope me up With smokes n’ drugs n’ alcohol! Chorus Bridge You know its time to get a job A wife and kids and family dog Beef it up with mortgage rates Pay your bills (MF) now don’t be late! Growing up’s a bitch! X4 (verse riff) End with Verse A riff

I GOT TO THINKING …ABOUT THE BIRDS AND THE BEES I GOT TO THINKING …CAN I HAVE SOME NOW PLEASE THE BIRDS KEEP SINGING WHILE -THEY’RE UP IN THE TREES THOSE BEEs KEEP STINGING ME -WHEN I’M DOWN ON MY KNEES BRIDGE F G D STOP THE BLEEDING..

Mirrored Windows (- Norm Baker) It would seem to me that you feel, The world you hide from's far too real, With world reporters casting glares Off reflective glasses that you wear The movies made a star of you the critics write a page or two Forcing you to view your climb Through mirrored windows where you hide Does the blue sky look serene Through tinted glass of limousines You turn your head away and laugh As faces press for autographs The movies made a star of you (3 part harmony) the critics write a page or two Forcing you to view your climb Through mirrored windows where you hide Does the stardom get to you When fans & critics say that you're a Star, shining star (3 part harmony?) Burning so bright Falling so hard Oh star, shining star Burned out so fast Your light dissolves Shine..... On (x4) <R-'shine' | G-'On'> We never ever see your face The silver screen's the only place You hide out miles away from view We need to know the things you do The movies made a star of you the critics write a page or two Forcing you to view your climb Through mirrored windows where you hide Reflect a world that praises you Reject the words that critics choose The hardest role you played is gone The headlines said you died alone The movies made a star of you the critics write a page or two Forcing you to view your climb Through mirrored windows where you hide Does the stardom get to you When fans & critics say that you're a Star, shining star Burning so bright Falling so hard Oh star, shining star Burned out so fast Your light dissolves

Momentum 03:54
MOMENTUM Even though I gave it a try; it still blew up in my face. But I got up again. Get caught up in expecting the worse; so much it turns out in spades. Let’s move on from that. Then you think to yourself “This is never going to end!” True to your word it keeps happening again! Now we’re simply numb to it all; waiting for the-next-big-thing. Then we’re off again… CHORUS Now I’ve got some momentum Don’t let it escape We’ve finally caught some momentum We’re gonna ride the wave Trying to make sense of it all; slowly drives you insane. But there’s a word for that Frustration is like waving the middle finger in your own face. Just go f***yourself. Draggin’ our heels for so long. Spinning the wheels, our drive is gone. There’s no virtue in patience if you suffer fools who force you to wait. The train is pulling away. CHORUS Bridge When I get to the end of life, At least I can say I’ve tried. There’s no time to catch your breath, Each minute wasted is a tiny little death CHORUS

One Night 03:38
One Night Where are you now that I’m calling for you? No of course, you’re not/ not at home, Or maybe you are and you’re just like me/ sitting there all alone But if you are why don’t you answer, cuz you’re driving me nuts inside, You pretty much know who I am/ you pretty much run my life ONE NIGHT. ONE NIGHT Take me out just take me away/ to places I (have) never been I so do love spending time with you; with you, the world is so pristine But where’re U now that I’m calling for U/ of course no, U’re not @ home But maybe U are and U’re just like me/ Darlin’ please pick up the phone. ONE NIGHT all I need is ONE NIGHT TWO NIGHTS I’ll be better with TWO NIGHTS THREE NIGHTS I’ll bring a friend; Wet DREAM will never end ONE NIGHT all I need is ONE NIGHT BRIDGE The things we do are nasty; the things we do are fun How do you do what you do to my thing for number one? This place is such a crazy world, been here looking for beyond The way you make me think and feel is the reason I carry on… ONE NIGHT all I need is ONE NIGHT TWO NIGHTS I’ll be better with TWO NIGHTS THREE NIGHTS I’ll bring a friend; Wet DREAM will never end ONE NIGHT all I need is ONE NIGHT

The Glass 05:04
The Glass What’s with this baggage I’m haulin’? I just want to get through the day. Cruel blade of fate is twisted, My wounds exposed on display. Slowly sinking, Slowly sinking. PRE-CHORUS I’ll agree I’ve lost my sense of self, All this greed ~ All this hate ~ All this hell Help me get off of this merry-go-round – goin’ down… Down… Down… CHORUS I’ll pick myself up I’ll dust myself off I’m feelin’ much better now The glass is half full This load I bear I cannot bear Just need a break from this pain I want an easy out of this Is there any other way? Still sinkin’ Still sinkin’ PRE-CHORUS CHORUS Time to look up…Time to look ahead Forget about the things we said - the things we did

Time 2 Go 03:50
Time to Go I’ve got my eyes on the road I’ve got my Foot to the floor I’m never looking back now Cuz it was time to go CHORUS: Something amazing happened back there But now it’s time to go Life changing good or bad I don’t care It’s really time to go I might have made a mess Or given up on bliss But it was time to go They want to ask me some questions They want to give me the chair Objects in the mirror Are smaller than they appear CHORUS Epiphany dawns my new life’s sunrise Shows me where I want to be. But it’s not here so I’ve got to go (there) Simply need some clarity Already out the door, No further reason to stay, You’re begging me to come back ***There’s just no fucking way*** CHORUS

Use & Abuse Me Your body’s a temple ~ my mind is a waste, Your perfection is simple ~ I complicate things. It’s been 16 days now ~ since you’ve locked me in chains, It feels just like torture ~ you make me wait for the pain. CHORUS Forget about sweet things like holding my hand, Just use and abuse me again I like it so much but they say tell me it’s bad when You use and abuse me again My desperate skin craves the bite of your hand So use and abuse me again I’ll walk on all fours, I’ll roll over and beg! Just use me & use me & use & abuse me again Sweet vixen seductress ~ You blindfold my face, I’ll drink in your essence ~ I long for your taste. You bring out your toys now ~ They’re not children approved. They make all sorts of noises ~ we’ll put them to use. CHORUS ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Bridge I lay here exhausted ~ my body is spent, The look in her eyes ~ shows we've just began. I just need the licking & throbbing & moaning & groaning & pleasing & squeezing & feelings of general content ~ Let’s do this again & again & again and…

the World Comes Crashing In Lyrics by Cory Van Ieperen When the world comes crashing in, I don’t know where I was supposed to begin, I hope that I’m living my life to the most, When the world comes crashing in. I’m just the story in a book that you’ve read, I come out, I grow up and then I am dead. It’s the space in between that matters the most, It’s our hearts and our feelings that remain with our ghosts, But my ghost isn’t sad… CHORUS When the world comes crashing in. I don’t know where I was supposed to begin! I hope that I’m living my life to the most, When the world comes crashing in. Here’s a plot twist you can’t comprehend, Am I playing the hero or the villain instead? It’s all part of some diabolical plan, Your life is in danger, be prepared to take a stand. Be prepared to take a stand! CHORUS When the world comes crashing in. I don’t know where I was supposed to begin! I hope that I’m living my life to the most, When the world comes crashing in. I’ve made peace with my past I feel free, I’ve made amends I can move forwards, I can face the end I’ve made peace with my past With my enemies and friends, I can move forwards, I can face the end.
