Track Name: We Are Insane
(Verse 1)
Restless dreamers
Hopeful schemers
Faithful believers
Yes we are
Unstoppable forces
Insatiable hunger

They all say that
We’re insane
For living life
Not their way
Everybody their insane
For thinking they
Created the game
Created the game

(Verse 2)
Dancing our own rhythm
With natural precision
They swing and swing
and swing and hit
Stop beating your drums
We are together now
We are beautiful


We are insane
Headed to the top, ya comin or not?


[Trumpet Solo]
Shake ‘em off!
Don’t care whose watching
Gotta dance through the dark
Look to the future
Dance to the future
Track Name: Future Grrrl
Future grrrl livin in a
future world
zoom zoom zoom
talking to robots
automated phone calls
future grrrl livin in a
future world
bang bang bang
la la la la la la la

Zip, zip zoomin’
in underground tubes
future transport
time travel over rules

I eat neon foods
ice cream with sprinkles

Every day rushing X4
Hustle and bustle
and muscle and truffles
and waffles and quaffles and
lot’s of and lot’s of
crispy little tater tots


From ooze to butterflies
to I-95
children are billboards
but fewer blackboards

(1st half of Chorus)

Slow, slow down [repeat]
and we can bump the tunes
without the band
future music soundtrack
in the palm of your hands
just slow it down, slow down
in this life don’t be afraid to
slow it down to this song
will slow you down
like a smile from a beautiful
woman slow down.
Track Name: Connection
If they could feel
what I feel
when I see a beautiful
They would know
the hatin’ is straight
personal confusion

but her beauty is
a gift randomly given
how I tire of flippancy
and pseudo affection
my time is short
I need real connection


My frequency is frequently
jammed with little
thought of ease
I know my vibe is hard
to read, so I chill it out
we’ll work it out
Don’t know about
love so it just gets
this song
Track Name: Amaryllis [Revised]
I am the Amaryllis
with delusions of grandeur
I am the Amaryllis
Always wanting something more

Can you feel it burning?
Your passion and your yearning?
The air in here is tasting stale
So I'm rising up above the veil


I'm not like any other
I bloom like no other
I crave for more than water
And this dirt is feeling soggy


(Chorus) X2

Track Name: Phantom Hand ft. Javier Starks
You threw me down
Because I wasn’t what you though
When my glamour wore off
You simply forgot
The seasons of people
Has me constantly plotting
If you said from the start
Maybe I wouldn’t feel forgotten
But now you’re just another friend
Turned to acquaintance
Another relationship
That needs some more maintenance

Mom always said you could count
Your real friends on one hand
You’re just another example of
An almost finger
On a phantom hand

I want it to stop
But it keeps on building up
The false hope of kinship
Always masked in friendship
The sudden lack of interest
Like toys after Christmas

Oh I’ll never get this business


We’re like two branches
That’ve grown apart
The only way to meet
Is to break ourselves apart
And that’s not okay
So it’s time for us to say
It’s time for us to say

(Chorus outro)
Good bye old friend x4
Good bye old
Track Name: Time Is Up

I don’t need your fake hug
To feel some love
I don’t need your fake smile
To float on up

I know who I be
And you don’t care to see
So pack it up, roll on out

For today is gone
Don’t you know our time is up?
Like the waves on the shore
Don’t you know our time is up?

Eventually you’ll come to see
I’m made of gold
I don’t need your belief
To make my goals
I just need the hand claps
Of people with the cool factor
Pack it up, roll on out


[Interlude Hand claps + Trumpet Solo]

I just need your hands clappin (rep.)
You look at me indifferently
And the tide is getting low
The tide is getting low (rep)

[Trumpet solo]

Track Name: Positive Vibrations
Positive vibrations x4

We’re dancin’ in the park
and it’s way, way after dark
Ya feel it? x3
The music’s takin’ over [Repeat]
Track Name: 2011
In the year
two thousand one one
the fun had just begun
it’s time to raise your cup
everybody is blowin’ up

Blowin’ up X4

When the go getters
get, get, get, get, get
When the hard work
pays off, pays off, pays
when we rise, rise
when we fly so
high X4

(Same Verse)


the darkness takes me under
I forget the breath of the wind
I forget the light of day X2

(Chorus sans “blowin’ up”)
so high
