Track Name: Wonder
Vocals: Celeste Dely

curious wonders
i envy those with many
i wonder why we wonder
if we can not see any

big minds, little people
what difference will you make
if you are willing to take

image is key
we are fooling the fools
is it really essential
we are all just ghouls

big minds, little people
what difference will you make
if you are willing to take

how do we even live
when living has a price
shouldn't we have the right
to live free without a fight

big minds, little people
what difference will you make

curious wonders
i envy those with many
i wonder why we wonder
if we can not see any

big minds, little people
what difference will you make
if you are willing to take
Track Name: I Want You Back
Vocals: May Campbell

oh
let me tell you now

when I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
those pretty faces always made you
stand out in a crowd

but someone picked you from the bunch
one glance was all it took
now it's much too late for me
to take a second look

oh, baby give me one more chance
(show you that I love you)
won't you please let me
(back in your heart)
oh, darling, I was blind to let you go
(let you go, baby)
but now since I see you in his arms
(I want you back) x4

trying to live without your love
is one long sleepless night
let me show you, boy
that I know wrong from right

every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
following the boy
I didn't even want around
(let me tell you now)

oh, baby give me one more chance
(show you that I love you)
won't you please let me
(back in your heart)
oh, darling, I was blind to let you go
(let you go, baby)
but now since I see you in his arms

oh darling I was blind to let you go
(let you go baby)
but now since I see you in his arms,
i want you back
Track Name: Titanium
I am titanium (x2)

You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized
But all your bullets ricochet
Shoot me down, but I get up

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium

Stone hard machine gun
Firing at the ones who run (x2)

Cut me down
But it's you who'll have further to fall
Ghost town and haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
I am titanium
I am titanium

Stone hard machine gun
Firing at the ones who run (x2)
Track Name: Sunday Morning
Vocals: Asim Chin

Sunday morning rain is falling
Steal some covers share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in
But things just get so crazy living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm
Change the weather still together when it ends

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

But things just get so crazy even life gets hard to do
Sunday morning rain is falling and I'm calling out to you
Singing someday it'll bring me back to you
Find a way to bring myself back home to you

And you may not know
That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
Track Name: Simple Things
Instrumental
Track Name: Where I Have to Go
Vocals: Kathryn Ellis

I saw you last night
It was in a dream but our love died
There was nothing there but you and I
I couldn't forget it if I tried

[Guitar Solo]

(chorus)
This is where I have to go
To see your beauty
Where I have to go to see
That you're just like me
Come on back, don't be shy
Even if we have to try a little bit
It'll be alright

If life is but a dream
Then why aren't you ever here for me
I have been so blind, but I can see
There has never been a you and me

I know, I'm being crazy
But I know you'll come back someday
Leave me, but I'm not angry
I will always have my dreams
(x2)

[Chorus]

I know, I'm being crazy
But I know you'll come back someday
Leave me, but I'm not angry
I will always have my dreams
(x2)

(Baby, please come back) (x4)
(back back ba-ba-ba-back)

I saw you last night
I had to tell reality goodbye
I can see whenever I close my eyes
Dreams will get me through the night tonight
Track Name: Coffee Shop Girl
Vocals: Elliot Venis

I was sitting in a coffee shop
Just minding my own
I sit in the same place every day
It's a second home
I people watch, I drink my tea
The same thing every day
Then she walked in and we locked eyes
I just couldn't look away

I got lost in your eyes to my surprise
Entranced by the color intrigued by the size
I can't get a grip after looking at your lips
The way you drink your coffee with such little sips
The way you look around like there's no one to be found
I wanna call you over but I can't get out a sound
You're a perfect eleven, I know I'm a seven
But I have to talk to you

I think I saw her glance my way
I kept my head pretty low
Too shy to move, in my own little world
Oh no, I think she's about to go
She took her last sip and stood up
She was about to leave
I guess I'll never know the name
Of the prettiest girl I've ever seen

(Chorus)

So I was in a coffee shop today, and I definitely saw the most gorgeous girl I've ever seen in my life.
Oh really? What was her name? You get her number?
No, she just kind of got up and left, and I didn't get to talk to her.
Oh.

[Ukulele Solo]
Track Name: If You're With Me
Vocals: Paddy O'Meara

I saw you briefly this morning but I wasn't awake
You were late for something, you were trying to make
No time for anything, you just had to go
Since then, I've spent a lot of time getting used to my mind
And it's surprising what a lot of thoughts I've managed to find
I've come up with a question and I need you to let me know
So...

My ideas are flowing and I know where I'm going
But I need to know if you're with me
There's no point to my plan if you're simply not a fan
So I need to know if you're with me
I am happy to stay if it's still okay
Can wait for it to work out another day
But if you're not having fun, then tell me and move on
Just need to know if you're with me
Or if we're done

Seems like whenever you go left, you take a step to the right
Trying to organize a time is simply asking for a fight
I'm not wanting to argue with you anymore
But then sometimes it's so good and it feels like it should
So once again I want to ask you kindly if you would
Please get back to me on the question that I asked before
Once more...

(Chorus)

Track Name: Little Situations
Vocals: Celeste Dely

flawless complexion
i don't need your perfection
burned out minds
from those evil little lies

oh oh oh
you're paranoid
from those little situations

people stare
but you don't even seem to notice
behind your back
they talk until you crack

oh oh oh
you're paranoid
from those little situations

i'm falling

oh oh oh
you're paranoid
from those little situations

Track Name: Stickin' it to the Man
Who can tell me what it's really about? Leonard?
Stickin it to the man?
Yes.
But, you can't just say it, man
You gotta feel it in your blood and guts.
If you wanna rock,
You gotta break the rules.
You gotta get mad at the man.
And right now I'm the man.
That's right, I'm the man.
And who's got the guts to tell me off?
Huh? Who gonna tell me off?
Shut the hell up, Schneebly!
That's it, Freddy.

Stickin it to the man? (x2)

Shut the hell up, Schneebly!

Stickin it to the man?
(Man, man, man, mm-m-mm-man)

Because the WORLD is run by the man.
Who?
The Man, oh, you don't know the Man?
He's everywhere.
In the White House...
Down the hall...
Ms. Mullins, she's the Man.
And the Man ruined the ozone,
he's burning down the Amazon,
and he kidnapped Shamu and put her in a chlorine tank!

Como estan, bitches!

Man
Track Name: The Clouds
