Submitted by level
1. Get Started
We're running pretty fast, and we don't suffer fools.
We can't get what we're looking for unless we break some rules.
Time to change the view, exit same old scene.
I'm going to take my money, play it all on red.
I'm just getting started!

I'm just getting starteJust getting warmed up.
Life's too short for slowing dowYou ain't seen nothing yet!

It's twenty years on and you still look good to me.
The lines on our faces remind me of places we've been and the good times we've seen.
I'm so in love with yoWe're just picking up speed.
Here's my promise, I'll be a better man! I'm just getting started.
I'm just getting started here, I'm just getting going.

Life's too short for slowing dowYou ain't seen nothing.
I'm just getting started herI'm just getting warmed up.
Yeah, got my motor revved and she's rolling, rolling, you ain't seen nothing.
2. Hot Spot Junkie
The wifi wave, I'm addicted to the wifi wave.
An indispensable satellite tool I abusI abuse.
The world wide web and all the pictures on YouTube, there's no escaping it.
Keeps on crawling under my skin.

Can't look away from the screen, might miss what's happening.
I'm busy surfing for some other kind of fantasy.

My mind's a river flowing don't know which way to run.

I'm wound up tight I'm like a hot spot junkie with a down loaded gun.

This Wifi frenzy world revolutionary cyber world.
Ready get some air time, air wave timYou got it under your skin?

The world wide web has the local news on YouTube.
The connectivity is crossing the threshold, crossing the threshold.

Encrypted codes and filters but there's no time to rest.
A revolutionary modern world in distress.
Just like a fire glowing, don't know how much will burn.
A WiFi knuckle hot spot junkie.

Do you feel electric rising?
Do you feel your thoughts are shattered into a million pieces?

Get some wave time, air wave timThis wifi frenzy world.
Get some wave time, air wave timThis wifi crazy world.
3. Got It Bad
I like the way you walk into a room.
You take it over like it was put there just for you.
You've got “those” sunglasses on.

I bet you read Machiavelli in bed and I realize that I'm in way over my head ...
But I got it bad .so bad for you.
Got it bad for you! I got it bad!
Oh I'd stay up all night to see if you're the kind of girl that bites.
You're not some China Doll I'd get over soon.
You got mesmerizing advertising, want to make love to you.

Now I feel you, coming on strong.
And I could feed you if we could ever be alone.
Oh, baby, I've got it .so bad for you!
Got it bad for you! I got it bad for you!
I got it bad, bad, bad, bad dog, don't make me beg.
What you got going on with that .is more than I can take.
You've got “those” sunglasses on.
Now I feel you, coming on strong.
And I could feed you if I could ever get you home.
Oh, Honey, I've got it .so bad for you.
Got it bad for you!
I got it bad for you! I got it bad for you!
4. Higher
You caught my eye tonight and I've seen you watching me.

What are you waiting for?
Someday never comeWhat you say? What you got?

Won't you say something?
Don't just walk on by.
I'm a fool to let you .go!

So now you want me, my arms around you?
I can't think.
You've got remote control.
I feel it in my soul.
Baby got something for me?

When will you see, just what you're doing to me?
I wish I knew what to say, I think about you every day and every night in my dreams you haunt me.
I'm a fool to let you go!

I've seen you watching me.
What are you waiting for?
Someday never comes.
When will you see?
I can take you higher.
I'm a fool to let you go.
5. Wot We Do
Let's get it straight now, you think you need more time?
One step over the linWelcome to my world.
It's a carnival with every delight that's imaginable.
So marvelous, delicious ...! Won't you have a taste?

If you've got a wild fantasy, we're here just for you.
Take a chance you'll see, you know you want to.
We'll make you laugh, we'll make you crIt's wot we do!

Spin the wheel of chance and we all win tonight.
All night long the waitresses bring the drinks, to make it right.
Feel the music pumping, you're high, feel like jumping on the dance
Floor that's what it's for.
Everybody raise your glass.

If you've got a wild fantasy, we've got something for you.
You like the pretty things you see, don't touch.
We'll get you up but down look dowIt's wot we do!

If this is your fantasy, come on! What you going to do?
If you've got a wild fantasy, here's wot you do!

If you've got a wild fantasy, we're here just for you.
Just take a chance, you know you want to.
There's no place for inhibitionIt's wot we do!

You want it so baGive me your hand and I'll help you find your way.
This kind of action doesn't happen every day.
Just step inside the spinning room, where every one's a cartoon!
It's safe to say, you'll be ok.
It's wot we do!

If you've got a wild fantasy, we've got it all for you.
Come on won't you play the game? I know your girlfriend wants to.
It's much more fun when everyone surrenders so right now put your
Hands in the air tomorrow you won't remember.
If you got a wild fantasy .Come on!
Do you like wot we do? If this is your fantasy, It's all up to you.

If you've got a wild fantasy, we're here just for you.
Take a chance you'll see, you know you want to.
We'll make you laugh, we'll make you crIt's wot we do!
6. Around The World
Maybe what we need is just space to breathe.
Maybe we just need to take a step back and think this through.
Some might find it necessary while others find it challenging.
There's so many ways we can change, so many ways to see someone else's point of view.

All around the world.
Can't you see a day, everyone leaning the same way?
All you need is love.

We're blinded by fear and we hate our brother.
We don't understand his differences.
It's our ignorance that's a handicap waiting for a cure.

All around the world, we react the same way.
When you love it's like a flood.
All you need is love.

All around the world,
Love changes everything even in the smallest of ways.
All you need is love.

Day by day the veil is lifted and I release control.
All these changes, all this re arranging starts with me if I want more.
Love is all, all you need.

All you need.
All you need is love.
All around the world.
We all have the choice, speak in fear or make love your voice.

All you need is love.
Love is all you need.
All around the world, change begins with you, with everything you do.

All you need is love.
All around the world, it's time to stop the blame.
Only love heals the pain.
All you need is love.
7. Drive
I got a mind to make you mine All mine.
I got a mind to make you mine All mine oh.
I'm driving with my eyes close Show me a sign.
Driving with my eyes closed, I can feel your fire.

Always trash talking, you look so good when you go down slow.
Yeah you're acting like you got nothing to live for.
I'm driving with my eyes closed, weaving like I'm blind.
You can't be driving when your eyes are closeI can't lose it now.

If we ever make it out alive, we may never see the light again.
We keep on trying We keep trying.
It could all just end tonight Can't you see the possibilities?

I got a mind to make you mine All mine.
And I'll keep trying to make you mine All mine oh.

Now you're back seat driving Keep your hands off the wheel.
Who's in control? I love it when you act like your world is gonna end.

I love you baby but your driven me mad, and I know it's bad, better take it slow.
Don't know which way is up when my eyes are closed.

If we ever make it out alive, we may never see the light again at least we tried.
We keep trying We've got to make it through this time.
Keep on trying Keep trying We gotta make it.
8. At The Edge
Yeah, you can smell it in air ...
Frustration, you know, like no one cares.
We've forgotten how to dream.
When they come scraping through the wreckage and leave it all for saints to sanctify,
You'll be dancing ...at the edge of the world.

Now read the headlines, What a sleeper.
Now I ain't Ghandi and I ain't no teacher.
But it's all the rage with my generation, I'm doped up fat, can't get it up.
Gimmie another shot I'll be fine I'll be fine.
Some one's kicking in your door and you're screaming for the more.
Dancing at the edge Yeah you're just going to take it?
Ain't going to make me bow my head Dancing at the edge!

Time to listen, cards close.
Time to look at what's behind closed doors.
Got gasoline, ammunition, like 911, a controlled demolition.

“Come to Jesus”, they say “Don't be a sinner”.
They chose a mad man to be our leader.
Now where's the rage? My generation, doped up fat.
Can't get it up Gimmie another shot!!! I'll be fine.

Campaign promises No one's buying it.
How much can you take before your back breaks?
Now where's your rage?
My generation, doped up fat, can't get it up.
Gimmie another shot!!! Gimmie another shot!!!
9. I Take You
You can't forgive me with blood on my lip?
I've feasted on your innocence, left you like trash on the floor.
You follow blindly, I run on empty.
I'll be the savior you crave.

If my language seems backwards then your vision is so unclear.
Your heartbeat in my hand begins to slow, way down .I take you!
I take you .slow.

And I take you!

Fade in memories convenient to forget.
Tasted what you hid from me and I'm on to the next.
Automatic, catatonic I won't moralize with excuses .for “why me?”
I love the fear in your eyes.

It's all from memory and I'm running on empty.
I'll be the savior you crave.

If my language seems backwards, your vision is so unclear.
Your heartbeat in my hand begins to slow.
It's over! I take you! I take you .slow.

If my language seems backwards, your vision is so unclear.
Your heartbeat in my hand begins to slow way down.
I take you! I take you .slow
10. Retail Therapy
Standing in line again,
Waiting to buy the latest thing.
Convinced that I'm worthless without it.
I need this like I need a hole in my brain.
Who gives a hoot about green solutions
Or if there's food for the Chinese to eat?

I want what I want when I want it.
I need gratification, adulation, self-flagellation.
I need it, I need it! I need another one

I'm busy filling the hole in my soul, it takes all my time.
Can't pay attention to what's going on,
The world is spinning faster then I can keep up.

Sell it to me Sell it to me I'm so down today.
Need some retail therapy I've got cash in hand to buy happiness.

It's my plan to find a bargain on a new cell phone.
Gotta talk to someone soon.
Can't stand to be alone to long without feeling like
I'm going to come unglued.
I text and I text my every thought but I'm getting nothing back.
I've got 62 apps to keep me happy but what about tomorrow?

Got to get me some more, hit the store, I'll save so much time.
Standing in line got my credit card ready one more time.
I swear I'm just trying to keep up I'm so down today.
Need some retail therapy I've got cash in hand to buy happiness.

I'm busy filling the hole in my soul, it takes so much time.
ADD keeps happening to me, the world is spinning faster than I can keep up.

Sell it to me Sell it to me I'm so down today.
Need some retail therapy I've got cash in hand.

Sell it to me Sell it to me I'm so down today.
Need some retail therapy I've got cash to burn.

Wish there was something else for me.
11. The Lie
Read the writing on the wall.
Same story, only the names have changed.

It's all around you.
Selling fear to keep us down and while we're down, they give our jobs away.
What a shame they say.
It's all around you.
It's a Lie !! Lie! Lie! Lie! Lie! It's a crime!

Bankrupt the country and just walk away.
Two wars on tv, a debt our children pay.
Those elected in confidence give us illusions that freedom is our right.
Freedom is a choice!
On the outside things seem right until you stop and question why.
Another crisis situation Another crime.
On the outside things seem right until you stop and question why.
We better look in all directions we've been sold a Lie!

It's all around you! Lie! Lie! Lie! Lie! It's a Lie!

I'm confuse Which side am I on? Blue state, red state? It's just a state of mind.
It's all around you Why this obsession with categorization?
Why so quick to jump up paint your face?

Stop the madness, this ain't a race.

On the outside things seem right until you stop and question why.
We better look in all directions because we've been sold a lie.
On the outside things seem right until you stop and question why.
Another crisis situation Another lie.
It's all around you! It's a Lie !! Lie! Lie! Lie! Lie!
12. Big Noize
When I'm looking up, you're looking down.
Always on the outside no common ground.
I don't get what you think you're trying to be.

You know, everything you say is such a bore.
I'm just trying to hold on.
The paper in front of me is screaming but you can't see how we're dying.

Give me blue girls! Give it to me now! W
Hat will it take to convince us to change?
A hard rain ... gonna come. A hard rain is going to fall.
It's going to make Big Noize. It's gonna make Big Noize. Change your mind.

That day in September when our pants were down, I'll never forget the buildings falling round us.
They always said it couldn't happen here.
Now we're coming apart from the inside and we're mad as hell!
But all the fun is about to begin so you better jump in. Hold on!
Because we're tired of your game, rules you make, political views the money you take, golden tans, velvet ropes.
No more snow white smiles. I wish it would rain!

A hard rain's gonna come with televised opinions, so everyone can look at what's inside.
But all it takes is a moment ... and you're free.
Are you ready for that?

A hard rain gonna come. Make Big noize.
It's gonna change the world. Make Big noize.
It's just got to change. Change your mind.
