Track Name: Night And Day
She's a night and I'm a day
I want to sleep she wants to stay up and play
we may disagree about that but everything is OK
I go to bed early and she stays up all night
She likes it dark yet I turn up the lights
it may sound strange to you but everything is all right

Night and day we both have different ways
Night and day we both have different tastes
Night and day it may seem kind of crazed
She's my cold, cold sleepless night
and I'm her long hot day

I like to save and she spends every dime
I drink the water and she drinks the wine
It may sound strange to you but we're doing fine
I like it hot and she likes it cold
She's really quiet and I'm rather bold
It may sound odd to you but it's as good as gold

Night and day we both have different ways
Night and day we both have different tastes
Night and day it may seem kind of crazed
She's my cold, cold sleepless night
and I'm her long hot day

The night's too cold without the day
the day's too long without the night
it doesn't work if they're separate
but together everything is all right...

She likes to listen and I like to jam
I like it funky she likes hard rock bands
It may be different to you but I'm still her man
She's a night and I'm a day
She keeps it low key I get carried away
We may seem like opposites but we're here to stay

Night and day we both have different ways
Night and day we both have different tastes
Night and day it may seem kind of crazed
She's my cold, cold sleepless night
and I'm her long hot day

She's my cold, cold sleepless night and I'm her long hot day
She's my cold, cold sleepless night
and I'm her long hot day.
Track Name: Meant To Be
Everything seems to happen for a reason
even if that reason is unclear
Just when I thought love was a hopeless game
it was love that brought you here

Our love was meant to be
Baby you know that there ain't no doubt about it
Our love was meant to be
Ain't no way that I'd want to go and live without it
It's so plain to see
Our love was meant to be

If something is meant to be there is no limits
Nothing at all can stand in the way
Distance and time were both powerless
to stop the love we feel today

Our love was meant to be
Baby you know that there ain't no doubt about it
Our love was meant to be
Ain't no way that I'd want to go and live without it
It's so plain to see
Our love was meant to be

Baby I know they say that
good things don't come easy
and I used to think that was true
But now I have to admit
that I'm not so convinced of it
because it was so easy to fall in love with you

Our love was meant to be
Baby you know that there ain't no doubt about it
Our love was meant to be
Ain't no way that I'd want to go and live without it
It's so plain to see
Our love was meant to be

Meant to be
Meant to be
Track Name: Vortex Of Doom
There's a vortex of doom
sitting here in my living room
sucking me in, never letting me go
I should go outside and play, but I've got to watch this show...

There's a vortex of doom
hanging out in my bedroom
I can't stop now I'm in too deep
I've got to do what it says even though I should get to sleep

Get out of my head and out of my mind
Vortex of doom is wasting my time
I'll smash you to pieces just let me be
Vortex of doom is capturing me...

There's a vortex of doom
sitting here in my work-out room
I can't escape, I'll never be free
No matter where I go it keeps on following me.

let me be
Just set me free...

shut it off...
Track Name: 15 Minutes
Hey, there's only one way to go once you hit the top
It's a fast trip to the bottom if you ever stop
So keep on doing what it is you do best
you already know that your bright star can
outshine all the rest (let me tell you)

If you want to last past fifteen minutes
you got to reach for the top and never quit
if you want to last past fifteen minutes
you got to work like your life depends on it
(cause it does!)

Hey, this advice is good, no matter what you do
by reaching for your highest goals you can never lose
setbacks may come around every now and then
take a deep breath and push on through and
you'll be fine my friend (let me tell you)

If you want to last past fifteen minutes
you got to reach for the top and never quit
if you want to last past fifteen minutes
you got to work like your life depends on it
(cause it does!)

Hey, what makes me qualified
to give advice to you
I'm just a man that through a lot of hard work
made all his dreams come true
and it can happen for you
just follow through...

If you want to last past fifteen minutes
you got to reach for the top and never quit
if you want to last past fifteen minutes
you got to work like your life depends on it
(cause it does!)
Track Name: Access Denied
Yeah baby,
Let me take a look at your system for a second. mmm... nice!

Ooh, your system is so shiny and new and
ooh I think I got some special data in my queue
I scan around, but you're locked down
I know you'll love it baby once I hack right into you yeah,

I can't get past your firewall and I
can't seem to hit any ports at all
no matter what I try for a protocol it's Access Denied.
Access Denied.
I can't get past your firewall and I
can't seem to hit any ports at all
no matter what I try for a protocol it's Access Denied.
Access Denied.

Oh, I won't hurt you baby let me in your file system
my transfer is so smooth you don't know what you are missing
I'll tunnel in, fun will begin
I know you'll love it baby so grant me full permissions yeah,

I can't get past your firewall and I
can't seem to hit any ports at all
no matter what I try for a protocol it's Access Denied.
Access Denied.I can't get past your fire wall and I
can't seem to hit any ports at all
no matter what I try for a protocol it's Access Denied.
Access Denied.

[wait a second now, hold on...]
Ooh I made it in, isn't it so nice
she'll even let me hit it with my mobile device
packet sent, system spent
reboot really quickly and I'll transfer through the night, yeah

I finally made it in past your firewall
And I know what you like for a protocol
so before I start hitting your ports at all
Hold on tight
cause I got access tonight. access tonight...
Track Name: Long Ride Home
it's a new day. The day's just begun
the sun slowly climbs in the sky
it's a long day and I'm growing tired
it seems as if time just drags by

I just can't wait 'til I make my way home for the night

It's getting late. The day's almost done
the sun slowly sinks in the sky
it's been a busy day, but I've had some fun
it seems as if time just flies by

I guess it's time that I make my way home for the night

It's a long ride home, I've got a long way to go
and I'm tired
After such a long day
It's a long ride home and I feel so alone
but I know
I should be making my way
cause it's a long ride home at the end of the day

Don't spend your time
stuck in the past
you know you always have to move on
Live every day
like it's your last
cause one day you know your time will be gone
yeah it will be gone...

It's a long ride home and I feel so alone
but I know
I should be making my way
cause it's a long ride home at the end of the day
Track Name: Change is in the Air
You know I'm right about this
so I don't understand
why you have to fight about this
and ruin my perfect plan
to take us beyond where we've been
and into something new
we have everything to gain
and nothing at all to lose

I understand that there's comfort where we are
but you know that won't get us very far

I know that your scared
your world is about to change
I know why your scared
and everything rearranged
I know that your scared
It's going to be OK
there's nothing to fear
just because change is in the air
just because change is in the air

You know it's not such a big deal
this single demand
it means the world to me
so I don't understand
why you have to complain
And always protest
just remove these constraints
and grant this request

I understand you're afraid of something new
just give it a chance and I'll help to see you through...

I know that your scared
your world is about to change
I know why your scared
and everything rearranged
I know that your scared
It's going to be OK
there's nothing to fear
just because change is in the air
just because change is in the air

The future is calling
we've got to move on
we've got to be ready to change
not letting go
of the status quo
is just a losing game...

I know that your scared
your world is about to change
I know why your scared
and everything rearranged
I know that your scared
It's going to be OK
there's nothing to fear
just because change is in the air
just because change is in the air
Track Name: My Special Power
I look around and I just can't believe
I can see you but you just cant see me
It's so apparent I guess it's plain to see
I'm just transparent and I just can't be seen

My special power is invisibility
It causes people to walk right into me
it causes people to ignore me when I speak
my special power is...

My special power is invisibility
It causes people to walk right into me
it causes people to ignore me when I speak
my special power is invisibility...

I'm standing here and I just can't believe
I turn around and you're standing right on top of me
The only way that this makes sense to me
my power's working and I just can't be seen

My special power is invisibility
It causes people to walk right into me
it causes people to ignore me when I speak
my special power is...

It seems to happen at the worst times
I can't control this power of mine
the only way to materialize
is if I wake your ass up and open up your eyes

I'm walking home and I just can't believe
you're walking too and you walk right into me
It's not your fault, how could it ever be?
while I'm using my invisibility

My special power is invisibility
It causes people to walk right into me
it causes people to ignore me when I speak
my special power is...

My special power is invisibility
It causes people to walk right into me
it causes people to ignore me when I speak
my special power is...
Track Name: Divided
It's in our nature to always fight
'cause we all think that we are always right
the truth is out there, it's just waiting to be found
but you know it's hiding in a place we call common ground

Why must we be so divided?
Why can't we every just get along.
Why must we be so divided?
When together we are so strong...

It's just our nature...so hard for us to see past ourselves
and we don't like to accept ideas from someone else
well now the solution is right there before our eyes
you can only see it when you apply some compromise

Why must we be so divided?
Why can't we every just get along.
Why must we be so divided?
When together we are so strong...

Let's all come together, put our differences aside
focus on solutions and just swallow our pride
Nothing ever gets settled if we never agree
if you never open your eyes well, you will never see...

Why must we be so divided?
Why can't we every just get along.
Why must we be so divided?
When together we are so strong...
Track Name: Where Am I Going?
Dig! A road ends, a road begins
I'm heading in a new direction
but the path isn't so clear
I'm standing in an intersection

Where do I go from here?
Where are you taking me?
the future's coming fast and the past is
nothing but a memory
Where am I going now?
Where are you taking me?
It's such a mystery and I can wait to see
where this new road leads

I don't remember where I'm coming from
I wish that I paid better attention
but I guess it doesn't matter
reverse is just the wrong direction

Where do I go from here?
Where are you taking me?
the future's coming fast and the past is
nothing but a memory
Where am I going now?
Where are you taking me?
It's such a mystery and I can wait to see
where this new road leads

Do I have a destiny? Do I really have a final destination?
I'd like to think I'm free
and my future will be my own creation

I know where I'm going now
I know where I want to be
I'm going to take control and I'm going to go
where ever I please
I know where I'm going now
I know where I need to be
well why just ride when I can drive
it's ultimately up to me

Oh I decide it's ultimately up to me
Track Name: Remember
Let's just say you got a lover
one that never treats you right
Why would you stay instead of finding another
don't forget how it hurts when you fight

Remember how you're feeling
don't you ever forget
Remember, oh remember
don't do something that you're going to regret

Let's just say you got a lover
and you know the love is real
why would you stray and mess around with another
don't forget how that betrayal will feel

Remember how you're feeling
don't you ever forget
Remember, oh remember
don't do something that you're going to regret

Now I'm not saying you should live in the past
but the past can definitely help guide the way
Remember not to make the same mistakes twice
and don't let temptation guide you astray

Yeah, I know that's really easy to say
I'm going to go grab my guitar and play
Look out now...

Let's just say you got a lover
for whom you really care
don't call it quits after one disagreement
don't forget all the good times you share.

Remember how you're feeling
don't you ever forget
Remember, oh remember
don't do something that you're going to regret

Remember how you're feeling
don't you ever forget
Remember, oh remember
don't do something that you're going to regret

Don't do something that you're going to regret...
Track Name: Joystick
