Track Name: Lando CalriZian
Now I wanna tell you bout my friend Calrissian
He makes me swim like a fish or amphibian and
That's not to say that I don't know where I am again
But it makes me feel free like some good head medicine

Everbody knows about my good friend Lando
If you don't you probly got a bro that do know
He probly tells you all the time what a good friend he is
But that's like a bird singing bout how good the wind is

Lando Calrissian and Rzlas

If we can't take care of ourselves, how free are we?
I could cure all my headaches with maui wowi
Instead I have to kill my liver narcotically
Because of war on drugs, police, in peace, can bother me
They don't want you using plants and herbology
Have to pay for a pharmaco-lobotomy
I used to take happy pills and wonder why I still cry
Now I don't, I toke, and even when I don't I feel fine

Lando Calrissian and Rzlas
You're crazy if you think your pills don't come from drug dizzlers

Are you old and slowly dying
Do you sometimes feel like crying
When you close your eyes do you not, as you should,
Totally feel like your flying
Ask your doctor about Chill Pill
It'll make you feel real real swell
Side effects may include death but that's how you know it's the real deal
It's approved for chumps like you
Don't think for themselves just do what they're told to
But FDA most the way says it's ok, that's how the Doc's supposed to kill you
Track Name: I Can Do It
And if I die before I wake
I'll never know just how long it takes
And if I give up now I'll never know how
To make it all the way

I never imagined it would be as hard
As it seems to be
Every time I start
It feels like my heart's given up on me

I can do it
I demand that I demand more of myself
Than I've been doing
I can do it

And if we give up now
We'll never know just how good it feels to get through it
You can't wait, can't hesitate
It becomes fate the second you say that you knew it

I don't believe in all the demons I have
But nevertheless you help me through it
I can't guess at how bad bad I stress you
But peace and rest and all the best, you help me to it

So I can do it
I demand that I demand more of myself
Than I've been doing
I can do it
Stand in love, don't fall in love
Oh I'm so in love
Track Name: Cold
It's cold in my room
It's cold in my bed
You've been gone not long at all
I can still hear your voice in my head

Cause we been burning
Like the sun all night long
Now the embers are frozen
And you're stuck in my head like a song

But the world keeps on turning
And the sun it doesn't go down
When the fire stops burning
It's just cause the world is spinning around

You're gone
It's the chill in my bones
You say with more time you feel it less strong
You said it's been a while and you moved on
I said I'm fine, but we're all wrong

Want to be the one that you trust
One you could lean on
Was a time that it was such
But those times they been gone

I roam cause there's no one to cling to
I'm grown so what else can I do
I'm just so gone over you

But the world keeps on turning
And the sun it doesn't go down
When the fire stops burning
It's just cause the world is spinning around
Track Name: Certain
I got more reasons I don't sniff cocaine
Besides I can't afford it
I do what I want I have my fun
But no I don't have to snort it

Don't want to live my life being pushed around
Like my name was Norbit
I'd rather live to have my young than live my life out in orbit

I won't do things that make you think I'm crazy
Cause you and the things you do will always amaze me
I'll hold your hand above the sea
So in times so uncertain, be certain of me

I got more reasons I don't go murdering
Besides that it's illegal
I'd rather have my own peace of mind
Than hold a warm desert eagle

Though there's people out there that act like
Less than people
It's not my job to be god or the church
If anything just the steeple

I won't do things that make you think I'm crazy
Cause you and the things you do will always amaze me
I'll hold your hand above the sea
So in times so uncertain, be certain of me

I got more reasons I don't like war
Than being a peace-loving hippie
I's taught to love life in all it's forms
Even those that are not for me

So as long as you're not hurting my anatomy
I'll be good to you and you'll be
Good right back to me

I won't do things that make you think I'm crazy
Cause you and the things you do will always amaze me
I'll hold your hand above the sea
So in times so uncertain, be certain of me
Track Name: My Fault
I want this to seem
Like it's all just a bad dream
Seeming to real to me
I just don't want this to be
Someone scream and say just what I'm feeling
Breathe just won't escape me
Baby it's stifling
Nothing works, brain is jello, legs are worse
Seems that just being hurts
Baby this feelings a first
It's all my fault and I can't forgive at all
Never forget this all was caused by you
I want to blame but self preservation will never work the same
Denial never came and it never will again
I want to break the door down
Take you and we'll blow this town
They'll never find us now
Baby we'll be so far out
Track Name: Get Em While They're Young
We got a product
Demographically proven to sell
It's shiny and disney
Its hot and its sweet its a bombshell
Its parents are selling
Cause the promise is thrilling
And the money - they'll make a killing
So long as they're willing
To let us get em while they're young.

We got it packed up
All saran wrapped up
So it won't act up
Won't say things we don't want the world to hear
We got photo shop
We can stretch we can crop
Gotta perk that cheek up
Only show it grinning from ear to ear
It's only good
If you get em while they're young

I got some makeup
I got some earrings too
I think I'm a grownup
Cause I can imitate the motions that you do
I got private IMs I got the interwebs
My parents aren't upset
Cause they don't realize yet
What happens when they get em while they're young

It's so exciting
All the bright lighting
And all the fighting
All the people shouting it's name
But that's just the wrapping
It don't know what's happening
So there's no strong reacting
It doesn't know there's no backtracking
When you get em while they're young
