HEAD UP HIGH

Little girl, ride on, ride on
'Cause the wicked man is spitting lies, don't compromise, love will provide
And it's no surprise the Pimper's Paradise can be your demise

Why look down when the glory's way up?
You digging roots when the fruit's high on the tree top
When knocked down, oooh, you better get up
Step on your own two feet again
Hear me now...
Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!

Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall, my friend
Dance around on your good foot
Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall, to the top don't ever stop
Raise your head up high!
Dance around on your good foot, my friend, hear me now
Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall...

Why you so bunched up now when you should be stretching out
Keep a silence when there's plenty to talk about
You're always makin' up when you need to be breakin' up
Then go around breakin' up when you need to be makin' up
Spending plenty when you ain't got no cash
No need a dime when your banker counts ???
And too quickly does your weekends turn to Monday
Things move slowly when you need them to get done
Hear me now...
Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!

Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall, my friend
Dance around on your good foot
Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall, to the top don't ever stop
Raise your head up high!
Dance around on your good foot, my friend, hear me now
Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall...

Hear me now...Be strong, be strong
When opposition is spitting lies, don't compromise, love will provide
And it's no surprise, the higher you strive more will arise

Why look down when the glory's way up?
You digging roots when the fruit's high on the tree top
When knocked down, oooh, you better get up
And balance yourself so you don't fall again
Hear me now...
Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!
Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!
Rise up! Rise up! Rise up!

And raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall, my friend
Dance around on your good foot
Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall, to the top don't ever stop
Raise your head up high!
Dance around on your good foot, my friend, hear me now
Raise your head up high!
Don't let it fall...

OWN THANG

If you move too fast you may miss the sights and what's goin' on
It might be the wrong time, may well be the wrong time
But if you don't reach out your hands you may never hold on to something good
Life can be hard sometimes, ain't that right, life can be hard sometimes, well...

I may not always be there for you
You know I'll do whatever I can
You've got to go where the feeling's takin' you, yes you do
When you get there you'll understand

If a bus full of pain and misery comes rolling down your street
You better move that bus, you better bust that bus, bust it!
Now if a train full of unconditional love is headed outta town
You better jump on that train, get your ride on that train, ride on that train

You may be doin' things different than those around you
No longer driftin', course your own plan
And you know you're doin' what you've got to do, yes you are
When you get there you'll understand
If you keep waitin' around for the right time
You may never find the time, whoa o
So let me tell you right now is the right time
And whatcha doin', you're doin' fine, yeah!

I may not always be there for you
You know I'll do whatever I can
You've got to go where the feeling's takin' you, yes you do
When you get there you'll understand

All those robots in little boxes will be lookin' up at you
Doin' your own thang, doin' your own thang
Doin it! (x4)
Now, the shoe may fit but it just don't, just don't feel right to you
Go on and kick off that shoe, soles of your feet feel good to, yeah yeah!

I may not always be there for you
You know I'll do whatever I can
You've got to go where the feeling's takin' you, yes you do
When you get there you'll understand

If you keep waitin' around for the right time
You may never find the time, whoa o
So let me tell you right now is the right time
You doin', you're doin', you're doin' fine, yeah!
Doin' your own thang! (x3)

FRANTICALLY RUNNING

Up and down...up and down...up and down...

Maniacal woman, maniacal man
Three jobs, two lovers juggling just one hand

Burning your candle at both sides of the stick
Before you know it you're at the end of your wick
No time to think and make things right
A ball of string that is wound too tight
Maniacal woman, maniacal man
Three jobs, two lovers juggling just one hand

Your life is in shambles
You stumblin', bumblin', stumblin' bumblin'
Your social standing is in question because you don't know who you are
Sleeping in different homes or you're dining in your car
Your life is in shambles
You stumblin', bumblin', stumblin' bumblin'

Simplify your life and make it a good life (x2)

Building up material something
In your heart you still feel nothing
Relations has got your troublin'
And you don't know the ones you've been lovin'

Your life is in shambles
You stumblin', bumblin', stumblin' bumblin'
Your life is in shambles
You stumblin', bumblin', stumblin' bumblin'

Maniacal woman, maniacal man
Too many pills you got a shaky hand
That a shot of Scotch just ain't gonna fix
Before you know it you're at the end of your wick
No time to think and make things right
Your head's in a knot and you're up all night
Maniacal woman, maniacal man
Three jobs, two lovers juggling just one hand

Frantically running up and down
Frantically running all around town
Frantically running up and down
Frantically running all around

Simplify your life and make it a good life (x4)

What goes up must come down, you spinning 'round and 'round, 'round and 'round
What goes up must come down, down, down, you spinning 'round and 'round
Spinning 'round (x4)

Maniacal woman, maniacal man
Three jobs, two lovers juggling just one hand
Burning your candle at both sides of the stick
Before you know it you're at the end of your wick

Frantically running up and down
Frantically running all around
Frantically running up and down
Frantically running

PLANES AND TRAINS

Who's that knocking at my door now?
Who's that telling me to go?
What wind's rattlin' my door now
Voices in the wind from Chicago

Well, I caught myself a midnight plane from Hawaii to California
Then jumped on an Amtrack train straight up to Chicago
The weathers are steady but the people remain the same
I'm so glad to see them
Goin' back to a place I'm not from but now I call it home

A thief stole your luggage off the last train
That thief just passed you but you didn't know
Reach your hand in your pocket for a little change
How are you going to get by now?

You spot a friend hanging by the lake side
Greeting you with a big smile
A thief stole your luggage off the last train
That thief just passed you but you didn't know

Backstage, lookin' at all the band's names written on the wall
Plenty friends have walked through this door
Black paint, sofa stains, beer on the floor
I said plenty friends have walked through this door

Now who's that drinkin' at Delilah's
The silence speaks but I don't know
Horns are blowin' on the North Side
Weetay took Boner's solo
Deal's Gone Bad is in Chi-town
A place that I now call home
Spirits are ??? by another round
One more drink before we go

Caught myself a west-bound train from Chicago to Seattle
Then caught myself a midnight plane to my Honolulu home
My hapa-haole hula girl is waiting on a sandy beach drinking Mai Tai's
Few things always call me back to the place that I call home

Who's that knocking at my door now?
Who's that telling me to go?
What wind's rattlin' my door now
Voices in the wind from Chicago
Who's that knocking at my door now?
Telling me to go...

VALENTINE'S DAY

It just happened to be Valentine's Day
Cupid shot an arrow my way
It just happened to be Valentine's Day
Cupid shot an arrow my way

Oh, I do hear you calling me
And it feels good spending time with thee
I'll meet you at the pool hall 'round quarter to three
Then we'll see what's next for you and me

I'm so glad you want me
But I don't think you need me
And I would gladly be your man
Your man

I received your text and it tickled me
A gentleman with glasses is what you're calling me
We had a good time last night
And I'm glad everything went right

I'm so glad you want me
But I don't think you need me
And I would gladly be your man
Your man

I love, I love, I love the way do your hair
I'm aware
I love, love, love the way you smile
Drives me wild
I love, I love, I love the sweet sound of your voice
I love, I love, I'm the man of your choice

I'm so glad that you're here with me
I need you as much as you need me
Roving ??? around is good for you and me
And I'm so glad that you're here with me

I'm so glad you want me
But I now I know you need me
And it feels good to say that I'm your man
Your man

HIP HIP-OCRITES

Hip hipo-crits keep driving me down to the ground
And I can't take it no longer
People keep on letting me down
When they talk about truth
They turn it around

There's no truth in deception
Too many lies
And I can't take it no longer
Psycho manipulation is in this time
Reality keeps us stronger

No one's perfect in this world
We've all been hipo-crites before
Let's try our best to do it no longer
Keep growing stronger
No one's perfect in this world
We've all been hipo-crites before
Let's try our best to do it no longer
Keep growing stronger

We know, hip-ocrites we know
Hip-ocrites you know
Hip-ocrites we know

Now, we can keep on running
And we won't hide anymore
When following false direction
No need to follow anymore

Right now, there's still bombs in the world
Someone abandoned a baby girl
Right now humanity may to blame
One soul can make a change
Right now, stop hiding in your shame
Arise, do the right thing
Right now there's still bombs to the world
Bombs to the world

We know, hip-ocrites we know
In a world we know, hip-ocrites we know
You know, hip-ocrites you know
In a world we know, hip-ocrites we know

We can keep on running
And we won't hide anymore
In following false direction
No need to follow anymore

No, we can't keep on running
No need to hide anymore
When following false direction
No need to follow anymore

No one's perfect in this world
We've all been hipo-crites before
Let's try our best to do it no longer
Keep growing stronger

Hip hip-ocrites! (x4)

Hip-ocrites we know, hip-ocrites you know
Hip-ocrites we know, hip-ocrites you know
In a world we know, in a world we know
Today is the day to live, right now! To live right now!
Hip-hipocrites keep on dragging me down to the ground

PAIN IN MY HEART

There's a little pain in my heart
I wish I could've fixed it from the start
A lot of pain from a mix up last night
And I don't want to, I don't want to feel this way
Lord knows I'm bleeding today

I've never seen such lonely days
Never been through darker nights
How many tears must I have to cry
When I can't turn this chapter right

There's a little a pain in my heart, heart
You stole my pride and torn me apart
And I'm glad you're not coming 'round tonight
For I don't want to, I don't want to feel this way
No, no, no
Lord knows I'm bleeding today

There's a little pain! (x8)

In my heart there's an emptiness to fill
I ripped out our chapter but the pain lingers still
A lot of pain from a mix up last night
And I don't want to, I don't want to feel this way
No, no, no
Lord knows I'm bleeding today

Never seen such lonely days
Never been through darker nights
How many tears must I have to cry
When I can't turn this chapter right

There's a little a pain! (x4)

BAGGIES

Put the baggies down 'cause you're filling it up with trash
And one day your bag's gonna bust open wide
Put the baggies down 'cause they're filled up with trash
I see the junk in your blood-shot eyes

Picked up new idosyncrasies from the idiots who squeeze
A penny from the last breath of air you breath
Your mind is so shifty, so has left thee
And your skin is looking deathly
So, will you, will you hear my plea?
And hear me when I say...

Put the baggies down 'cause you're filling it up with trash
And one day your bag's gonna bust open wide
Put the baggies down 'cause they're filled up with trash
I see the junk in your blood-shot eyes

Little by little (x8)
I see more every day
Little by little (x8)
I watch you fade away

Slave to the streets for the people you meet
Who drove you down on your hands and knees
You see your new counterparts turn the corner and disappear
Telling you your end is surely near
So, hear me when I say...

Put the baggies down 'cause you're filling it up with trash
And one day your bag's gonna bust open wide
Put the baggies down 'cause they're filled up with trash
I see the junk in your blood-shot eyes

Little by little (x8)
I see more every day
Little by little (x8)
I watch you fade away

Put the baggies down!

Don't you back down now
'Cause tonight may be your last
Run for your life
Leave all the junk behind
Don't you back down now
Never, never turn back
For your next trip may be in a coffin this I fear
So, hear me when I say...

Put the baggies down 'cause you're filling it up with trash
And one day your bag's gonna bust open wide
Put the baggies down 'cause they're filled up with trash
I see the junk in your blood-shot eyes

Little by little (x8)
I see more every day
Little by little (x8)
I watch you fade away

Lay your baggage down! (x8)

Put the baggies down!

INCARCERATION

Without a doubt I know you've been down and out, my brother
Many problems bringing you down
You always spent cash thinkin' it would last
But, it ain't there now

So you went out there and bought a ski mask
Toy gun, painted it black
Borrowed your friend's car who was a rat
The disguise you wore wasn't all that

My brother
What you gonna do?
My brother
What you gonna do, my good friend

So went out and robbed a bank
Now you're locked up in the tank
You should've ran down to Mexico
Instead of life in correctional

My brother (x2)

Life, incarceration
A bad decision
Justice ain't always just
You never know who you can trust
(repeat)

By the time Three Strikes law was in the books
We were young and dumb, but weren't we all at one time?
So, all my brothers and sisters out there
Justice ain't always just all the time
So, be aware and control yourself
Think twice before you do the crime

My brothers and my sisters too

Come 'round town with your wicked intentions you will see incarceration (x4)

Life, incarceration
A bad decision
Justice ain't always just
You never know who you can trust
(repeat)

There's more than one way to solve your problems
So, don't let your problems get the best of you
Without a doubt I know you've been down and out, my brother
With a doubt the rest of your life will be down and out, incarceration

System got the best of you
Sleep next to a toilet this is true
Life and family's but a dream
And that makes me want to scream...

Life, incarceration
A bad decision
Justice ain't always just
You never know who you can trust
(repeat)

Life! (x4)
