Track Name: Pick a Key
Saturday, arrive at eight. Don’t be late
For this year’s main event
Bring your partner. Bring your key, free of disease,
Free of lovelorn lament
Put your keys in the bowl. Ready your soul
For some soft, earthly delights
Loosen up. Have a drink
Try not to think about the outcome of tonight

For you, for me, for you,
For everyone like you, like me
You’ll see
Just pick a key

Reality’s a fallacy socially built
On shamefulness and guilt
Occidental, oriental, all governmental
How the sword fits in the hilt
Scaring all the passion out of any adventure,
It makes no sense to me
Evolution, revolution, Here’s a solution:
It’s time to pick a key


For you, for me, for you,
For everyone like you, like me
You’ll see
Just pick a key

Pedal to the metal, driving home with your prize
It’ll make you feel alive
Pressure and anticipation, all culminating
To the point of overdrive
Put your key in the hole. Ready your soul
For the climax of the night
Bust your door open ’til your moment of zen
Until the time you turn out the light
Track Name: Man on a Mission
Man on a mission...
I'm a man on a mission that you don't know,
But I really wanna let you know
Man with a secret...
But I don't wanna keep it.
So, the lie just grows
I’m a modern day Pinnochio
Half my life is just crumbling
All around myself
Little white lies start to multiply
It does damage to my health
But, I'm a man on a mission...
Man on a mission that you don't know.
Oh, I really wanna let you know.

So if I die, baby don't you cry
Just be mad as hell
You won't ever forget me
But you'll carry on as well
'Cause you will live from the gift I give
Better than the way things stand
But you won't understand
That I'm just that kind of man...

A man on a mission...
I'm a man on a mission that you don't know,
But I really wanna let you know.
Act of contrition
For the help you were missing
Help that I owe
I stood helpless so long ago
Half my life, I've been wandering
Wrapped up in myself
But, since the day that I first met you,
I put all that on a shelf
Now, everything we've stood for...
Everything we've been
Is threatened by the chance that you could meet an early end
So, I'm a man on a mission...
Man on a mission that you don't know.
Girl, I really wanna let you know.

So if I die, baby don't you cry
Just be mad as hell
You won't ever forget me
But you'll carry on as well
'Cause you will live from the gift I give
Better than the way things stand
You won't understand
That I'm just that kind of man...

Man on a mission...
I'm a man on a mission that you don't know
Girl, I really wanna let you know.
Track Name: God is Angry
Shaken seas!
Sky turns black
Human beings
Standing back
Watch the poison
Form attack
Plant the seed
It won't grow back

God is angry
We've been bad
God is angry
Can't go back

In a blink
All we had
Watch it sink
Oh so sad
When the damage
Hit so fast
All we say is
This cannot last

Cuz god is angry
We've been bad
God is angry
Can't go back

In this wisdom
Second guessing
Look what we've done
Man take it easy
Ain't it funny
All our problems
Seem so petty
All because!

God is angry
We've been bad
God is angry
Can't go back
God is angry
Track Name: There's the Door
My head feels like a demon's
Driving ten foot needles through my eyes
My memory's forsaken me, 'cause
I just don't know
How I wound up lying here face down on the floor

My bed's a mess and empty
All my food is rotten to the core
Identity's bereft of me
How? I don't know.
But, I've decided I won't take this any more

You don't like what you see,
Well then there's the door
Stuck in a rut, you think,
You can change all that and more
So, if you're squandering all your time and more
And there's no happiness to be found,
It's time you best move along.

My friends don't recognize me
I am just a phantom in their eyes
My family can't rescue me.
Now, I don't know
Why I chased that rabbit
Down that rabbit hole
Ohhhhhhhhhh, somebody help me!
How did I get here?!
I don't wanna do this anymore!

You don't like what you see,
Well then there's the door
Stuck in a rut, you think,
You can change all that and more
So, if you're squandering all your time and more
And there's no happiness to be found,
It's time you best move along.

You don't like what you see,
Well then there's the door
Stuck in a rut, you think,
You can change all that and more
So, if you're squandering all your time and more
And there's no happiness to be found,
It's time you best move along.
Track Name: Got No Game
I knew a young girl back in the day.
She'd drive all the boys and men wild,
And no one mistook
That she had the look
Except for herself.
Oh, that girl had no game.

Oh, look (she got that good look, but,)
God, she got no game.
Oh, look (she got that good look, but,)
God, she got no game.

Yellow polka dot bikini in the front yard,
She'd make all the drivers crash cars.
And, she never knew
That there was a queue
Of ten thousand wrecks
She just thought people shouldn't drive and text.

Oh, look (she got that good look, but,)
God, she got no game.
Oh, Lord,
With that body on the loose!

I knew a young girl caught up with the blues
See this boy put her in the finest of moods
One little smile and she felt so high
But when she spoke, good God, we had to cry

Ohhhhhh, that girl just had to be all mine.
I didn't give a damn if I got declined,
But I took the chance,
Made my advance,
And all I can say,
"It's funny that she's still oblivious today."

Oh, look (she got that good look, but,)
God, she got no game.
Oh, Lord,
Hottie on the loose!
Track Name: Big Time Sarah
I've been low. I've been dry
Long road. Dark sky
Square wheels won't drive but I still got my pride

She said "drop that beer, and let's have this dance."
Her dark hair flipped, and my face, it turned red.
This girl was mine, and I grabbed her hand.
We need more time and another good band.

What's your name?

Well, I confess. I wasn't the best.
But, what felt so wrong was that knife in my chest.
This girl sat down, and she started to rest.
My God. Who's that? It can't be your man?

What's your name?
It's all a game!

That's about the time Big Time Sarah said, "Step on up here, boy. Show me you're a man!"
…and I did! I did!

What's your name?
It's all a game!
What's your name?
