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

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.

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

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.

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!

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?
