Track Name: Exploration No. 5
EXPLORATION No. 5

VERSE I :

I think I like long conversations
Amusing observations
It's the single best combination
For me
Let's talk about the deep and endless ocean
Hey what's your favorite crustacean ?
We can go on and on
Until we fall asleep

CHORUS :

Cause this is how things start
A thunderbolt through the heart
When we do what we do
I want to whisper to you
When the whole world shouts
Find the things that you're about
It won't be hard
It won't be hard
If you would like to start

VERSE II :

Oh I tell you I like going in exploration
Recounting scenes in animation
How we wish our aspirations
Would grow wings
Let's talk about all our strange fascinations
Or what we hate, our admiration
For aliens and languages and things

CHORUS

BRIDGE :

Now I would like to go
Where our feet can go
Only you would know the way
When we start our plans
Let me take your hands
And we'll make something that rhymes with adventure
Are you down to start one big adventure with me?

VERSE III :

I tell you I like breaking your concentration
Just to say out loud my speculation
About the worlds that spin beyond our atmosphere
You get my less than normal disposition
And this puts me in an obligation
To like you just for being here

CHORUS
Track Name: Grammar Nazi
GRAMMAR NAZI

VERSE I

See, I like a boy
Cute and nice and tall
But there's one problem (Guess what)
He couldn’t spell right at all
And I know
That's not the end all - be all
But it really kinda blows
Poor guy doesn't even like books (I know!)
And sometimes, it shows

PRE-CHORUS

My momma told me it's unwise
To like a boy who's just nice
But couldn't put apostrophe s's
On his possessives
Don't look at me when I look at you
Whenever you say "stuffs"
Cause that's my cue (RETCHHH)

CHORUS

I'm not a nazi
I just care about good grammar
Hey paparazzi (okay)
I just said that cause it rhymed
But don't you dare commit a grammar crime on me

VERSE II

You type "lose" with one o
If you're losing your mind
And 2 O's for describing
Bowel movements of any kind
You see "your" and "you're"
Are two different things, baby
It's YOUR problem, YOU'RE confused
But I'mma help you out with the words you use, yeah

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

RAP BREAK

I suggest you brush up
On your subject-verb agreement
If we keep this up
It's gonna be a commitment
You never say "Dogs barks"
You just say "bark"
Pay a bit of attention
We're gonna take it to the park
Double negatives
And all its relatives
Don't sound no good
If they ain't in a rap song
I'm gonna break it down for you
I hate it when you say "furnitures"
When you mean "pieces of furniture"
Let the plural be pluralized
The English language doesn't deserve to be compromised
It's TO to direct
TOO for "too much"
Two is a number, learn it
Else I'll be holding a grudge
THERE'S two baby cubs
And THEIR momma lion
THEY'RE together, this is clear as day
If you're debating "If I was" vs "If I were", I say
Who would you believe more?
Bieber or Beyonce

CHORUS
Track Name: Creeper
CREEPER

VERSE I :

Darling don't you worry
I am watching behind a bush
I won't let you see what I am doing
I could be brewing a potion
Make you want me
White shirt, denim jeans, & quiffed up hair
I must remember all the things about you while you're standing there
Within my reach, so within my reach

CHORUS :

I say, "Hey, how'd you do?" as you walk on by
You think I'm nothing but a girl
Who's just happening to pass by
But I got my eyes on you
I've nothing better to do
Than to spend my waking days just following you
As you sleep, as you breathe, as you shed off your clothes
Easy, I'm falling deeper
You're such an unsuspecting fool & now you're under attack
If you were careful, you'd be watching your back
Cause I'm a creeper

VERSE II:

Darling, don't you worry
I'm no longer outside your door
I'm just assembling your pictures on my floor
Tape them on a wall
Yes, I've got it all in control
Hmm, let's see… Birthday, graduation, family dinner
Your photo as a child, (my tiny spelling bee winner)
I know you well, I know you well
All you have to do is fall under this spell

CHORUS

BRIDGE :

Oh I could think of a million things to do
If I could spend some more time with you
Oh, I could pet your head
Give you dinner, make your bed
And you'll say, and you'll say

CHORUS

OUTRO :

Oh I've got my eyes on you
There's nothing better to do
Than to spend my waking days just following you
Cause I'm a creeper
And that's what I do
Track Name: Code Of Kin
CODE OF KIN


VERSE I

Sister Sister, come outside, I'll show you
There's a big, big world that's waiting to get to know you
And we we will run, we will run, run run
Come now sister, dont be afraid
Just say what you want, don't you let that flicker fade
Don't be afraid

CHORUS I:

Cause you've got your beautiful mind, you're a warrior
Young and brave enough to pick your fights, to pick your fights
Let the salt water give you brand new eyes
So all you come home to is this side of paradise

VERSE II:

Sister sister back inside I'll hold you
Don't believe the lies the lions told you
And little one are you torn apart
by the past that haunts your heart
Oh we will, we will run

CHORUS II:

Cause you've got the strong strong heart of a soldier
So anchor all your dreams to the skies
Let the salt water give you brand new eyes
So all you come home to is this side of paradise
Bridge:
Sister if they shame your honor
Take your words and make it your armor now
Sister won't you curse the day
When they try to take your soul away from you now

CHORUS III:

Cause your spirit is a spirit made of iron
Unbreakable by pain or lies
Let the salt water clear your tired, tired eyes
So all you could see is this side of paradise
Sister Sister, come outside, I'll show you
There's a big, big world that's waiting to get to know you
And we we will run, run, run
Track Name: Slick
SLICK

VERSE I

Careful, love
Don't you let him catch you alone
He's got a knack for cunning conversation
And he will haunt you in your dreams tonight
Yes, it's hard to say no to those eyes
Yes it's hard to see through his disguise
And I don't blame you
For wanting this
For needing this

CHORUS

Cause there's a victim
For every mile he goes
Slick smooth talker got style
And I say no - oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You gotta go - oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And when you leave him for the night
Run fast and take your heart
Don't you make a sound
Cause I've been here before
And I know he's coming back around

VERSE II

Careful, love
Don't you let him get to you alone
He's got a knack for smelling desperation
And he'll lead you to his bed tonight
Yes it's hard to say no to those eyes
Yes it's hard to see through his disguise

CHORUS

BRDIGE

He’s gonna tell you you’re the one
So you better run
Yes he’s slick, never let him have his fun
Careful don’t you come undone (baby)
Slick moves, smart style
He’s been at it for awhile for a while
Track Name: Bleed
BLEED

VERSE I:

I wake up, today is the first day
That I won't call you mine
After all this time
I'm relearning how
To be myself without you
Thought I can't breathe without you
But I'm doing fine

PRE CHORUS:

Until I hear your voice (ooh)
It haunts me every now and then
Your ghost (ooh)
It cuts through every memory and I
Just wanna run away
But my feet are anchored underwater

CHORUS:

Now you're coming back (Ooh can we make it?)
This wreckage that we're at
(We're trying to save it)
Bruises on our hands (Oh ohhh oh ohhh)
Talking on the phone
(Oh I'm drowning)
It hurts to be alone
Oh we're going back
(back to all we've known - backing vocals)
I can't let you go but I need to
I'll bleed if I have to

VERSE II:

I'm reciting out this secret language that we share
Maybe you'll hear my voice from where you are
I'm realigning
All of the stars up in the sky
Disconnecting you and I
Cause I'm alright

PRE CHORUS:

Until you touch my skin (ooh)
You're sounding all of my alarms
Imagining
What it's like to be wrapped right back in your arms
I'd run away
But my feet are anchored underwater

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

I know you're bad for me (bad for me)
But I refuse to see (refuse to see)
Cause you and I are magic
This illusion is our magic

CHORUS
Track Name: A Song About Space
A SONG ABOUT SPACE

VERSE I

Space
Oh how you baffle human race
I've heard you're this big, cold place
But I wonder
What lies yonder
The Sun
Such a tiny white dwarf when you've begun
Do you think when your time is done
Would you be so kind
To spare mankind
From the explosion

CHORUS

Oh, there's a part of me
That longs to belong to your great black sea
Float among the stars
Fly to Mars and back
Oh, how I wish to be
Swimming inside my own galaxy
Space swallow me whole
I'll be waiting for the black hole

VERSE II

Space
You have a way to make a man feel displaced
We were never meant to float there
in the first place
But we have astronauts to thank
Mr. Moon
Soon I'll see the other side of your face
Don't you think it's a bit of a disgrace to hide
To keep your better half as a secret

CHORUS

Oh, there's a part of me
That longs to belong to your great black sea
Float among the stars
Fly to Mars and back
Oh I appear to be
Just an atom within infinity
So space swallow me whole
I'll be waiting for the black hole

BRIDGE

Time warp
Fourth dimension
Show me the way
To go back to yesterday
And start a whole life over
Comet tails
Constellation
Show me the way
To Saturn's chocolate slide
Where the aliens play

CHORUS

Oh, there's a part of me
That longs to belong to your great black sea
Float among the stars
Fly to Mars and back
To where a soul could find
A heavenly body that would be so kind
To take me whole
Until then, I'll be waiting for a black hole
Outro:
Mercury, the closest to the Sun
Venus I can see you from Earth, you're the only one
Mars, can you accommodate living things
Jupiter I know of your invisible rings
Saturn I heard you can float on water
Hey Uranus can be the name of somebody's daughter
Neptune you're so far away, the color of the sea
Pluto you will always be a planet to me
Track Name: Autopilot
AUTOPILOT

VERSE I

I feel nerves taking over
Every bone in my body won't budge
Excuse me but my manners just left
The building, oh oh
My mind goes autopilot
When I'm next to you I don't even know
Can't remember words that come out
You're tangling me up inside   

CHORUS:

I’m trying to figure out
How to make you stay longer
Don’t go home
It’s a long way from here
There’s nothing to say
Nothing to make this feeling go away but
Wait a minute
If you’re in it then I’m in it
I’m in it

VERSE II:

You’re more than I imagined
And I’m shaking my head, girl you did good
My eyes are screaming "Just take my hand"
I'm staring you down so hard
Would you do me a favor?
Please stop being so charming, if you could
I can only take so much
And you’re pulling out all the stops

BRIDGE:

Oh oh oh
Don’t you know
I get strung up
Watching you go oh

CHORUS
Track Name: St. Petersburg
ST. PETERSBURG

VERSE I

Go on, go on, lonely soul
To St. Petersburg
You are looking for home
Away from home
Away from home
Pack your bags
Don’t forget
Your blue sweater on the plane
You’ll never find the same one again
Rest your head on the space
Of your shoulders

CHORUS

I know your heart is lost
And all the words, they don’t make sense
Your fingers crossed
Hoping you’re a better man tomorrow
So you walk along
But don’t be afraid to wander
Try to get back that wonder that you lost
And when you’re done
I’ll be waiting

VERSE II

Sail on, sail on, lonely soul
Down to Portugal
You are looking for space
To breathe your air
To breathe in
Call the ports
He’s on his way
He’s just running late
Bag’s a little bit overweight so he let it go
Rest your head on the space
Of your shoulders

CHORUS

I recognize your kind
I’ve met someone like you before
You’re stuck in time
Hoping you’re a better man tomorrow
So you walk along
But don’t be afraid to wander
Try to get back that wonder that you lost
And when you’re done
I’ll be waiting

OUTRO

Rest your head
On the nook of my neck
Track Name: On Wednesdays We Wear Pink (Extended Version)
ON WEDNESDAYS, WE WEAR PINK

CHORUS:

Janis Ian, dyke ( x 3)
Diving in a sea of lesbians

VERSE I:

Cady is the new girl
She's just trying to get it right
They ask, if youre from Africa
Then why are you white
She kicks it off first day,
She thinks she'll ne okay
But she makes no friends
So she sits in the bathroom eating her lunch -
Cheer up Cady,
Dont be a baby

CHORUS

VERSE II:

Cady finds it so, so hard to concentrate in class
Why even care when you can just stare
At Aaron Samuels's ass
And it's not all rainbows, not all smiles at Northshore High
She's the new prey who tries everyday
To escape Kevin G's harassment in the hallway

CHORUS

VERSE III:

Enter the Plastics, (Karen!)
She likes her cousin Seth
Gretchen, with Toaster Streudel breath
Regina, the meanest of them all
She can sabotage your life with just one phone call
And you could go shave your back now Jason
(Shave your back)
The votes are in and they go
None for Gretchen
Four for you Glenn Coco

CHORUS

BRIDGE

She's a Mathlete
Don't give her that seat
Kalteen bars is all she can eat
She's a - spring fling queen, a Plastic
Who made army pants and flip flops fantastic
Home schooled jungle freak
Barely made it alive on her first week
And in Northshore
Hormones abloom
At the projection room
Above the auditorium

EXTENDED VERSION

Cady’s on the brink
She’s on her kitchen sink
With the fertility vase of the N’debele
A Frankenstein invention
Deserves an intervention
She needs to be saved / from the underbelly
Shh
A moment of silence for Gretchen’s gold hoop earrings
From Hannukah (that’s so fetch!)
Put it on the Burn Book, butter my muffin
I’ll get some lovin’ from this high school jungle

CHORUS

OUTRO:

Is butter a carb? X3
The limit does not exist, yeah
Is butter a carb? X3
Diving in a sea of lesbians
Track Name: Go Online
GO ONLINE

VERSE I

It's 2 am
And my browsers are wide open
Are you even online?
Hoping for a green dot
Beside your name
Waiting for you is my favourite game
But won't you please let me sleep this time
I'm still on my social networks
Hoping for a tweet that would work for me
So you can talk to me
Go on and start a conversation with me
And it's still a mobile sign right next to you
I'm reading though the messages that I sent to you
Yesterday, and the day before because today you just chose to ignore me

CHORUS

Won't you won't you please go online
Since we barely see each other
Is it such a bother
To just send me a message “How's it going?”
Oh please, take me out, it's fine
I could wait on you my whole life
But I'd rather sit right next to you tonight

VERSE II:

Well it’s 4 am
And you betcha we’re still talking
And I wonder, are you sick of me?
Are you just being polite cause it’s way past 3?
And I wanna say good night cause it’s the proper thing to do
I really wanna stay a while but
We’ve got some things to do in the morning
We’ll do it again in the morning

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Tell me are you gonna make me wait forever
Are we gonna get through this change of weather
Are we ever gonna get it on?
Isn’t it enough that we get along so well?

CHORUS

Please go online
You’ve got a mobile phone and I’m so alone
I could be watching stupid things on Youtube
Bu then again, why won’t you
Please, take me out, it's fine
I could wait on you my whole life
But I'd rather sit right next to you tonight
Please go online
