-VERSE 1-
Spreading your hate-spreading your filth
Hiding behind your lies
Pinning us down-holding us back
Playing with all our lives

-PRE-CHORUS-
This war of yours-will not be met with silence
If you don’t pack it up and leave-you’ll be met with violence

-CHORUS-
Your time- has come
I bet you wish that you could undo -what you have done
Your time -has come
If you know what’s good for you – you better run

-VERSE 2-
You’re a coward -you’re a creep
You’re no shepherd and we’re no sheep
You can try- to escape your fate
You can try but it’s already too late
-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-

Your Time Has Come

This is the New Me
-VERSE 1-
I’ve always had high hopes
I’ve always dreamed big
But I never followed through
Never made it to the end
But I’m here now and I’m ready to win
And I’ve got some news for you
I got my second wind

-PRE-CHORUS-
I used to look to everyone else for inspiration
But mimicking others has its limitations

-CHORUS-
This is the new me
This is who I am
Just you wait and see
What I can do when I give a damn
I’ve got more fight
I’ve got more heart
I’ve got more drive to finish whatever I start
This is the new me
This is who I am-now

-VERSE 2-
No more giving up when the going gets tough
I’m ready to face my critics and call their bluff
No more excuses No more alibies
From the ashes of the old me my phoenix will arise

-PRE-CHORUS 2-
It takes hard work and dedication
If you wanna cross that finish line and see the celebration

-CHORUS-

This is the New Me

VERSE 1-
Today I saw a grown man kiss his daughter goodbye
As the life faded from her eyes
Taken from him in a senseless act of violence
-VERSE 2-
Today I saw pride once lost with time
As a homeless vet gave his last dime
To help a woman who he thought needed it more than him

-CHORUS-
WHY- do we laugh and we cry
Do we live and we die
Spend so much time just searching
WHY- do we hate and we love
Believe in a heaven above
When there’s so much suffering
WHY-is life so puzzling?

-VERSE 3-
Today I saw evil in a cop’s eye
As he beat a man who did no crime
Just because of the color of his skin
-VERSE 4-
Today I saw the nation come together
The help those displaced by destructive weather
Showing us that all is not lost
-CHORUS-

Why

-VERSE 1-
Let’s start a fight
Let’s start a war
When evil comes a knocking
Let’s give ‘em what for

-VERSE 2-
You love to lie
You love to deceive
But our pain will no longer be the pleasure
That you will achieve

-CHORUS-
You are the problem
And I’m the solution (It’s time for Retribution)
Everyone’s tuning in
To watch your execution (It’s time for Retribution)

-VERSE 3-
Your time is up
Your reign is over
Karma is a bitch
And I’m helping her take over

-VERSE 4-
So when you hear the wolves howling
And there’s a knock at your door
Don’t worry it’s just ME
I’m here to settle the score
-CHORUS-

Retribution

-VERSE 1-
Sticks and stones can sure break some bones
But it’s your lies that break my heart
Someday you’ll be all alone
When you’ve done torn everything apart
-CHORUS-
You’re a ballbreaker-heartbreak maker
The devil in disguise
Bleeding me dry just to get your kicks
It’s my soul that you love to burglarize
You’re a ballbreaker-heartbreak maker
-VERSE 2-
If it’s good enough for me it’s never good enough for you
Destroying my life is all you ever do
You come on hot but you never play nice
You’ve got a heart of stone frozen in ice
-CHORUS-
You’re a ballbreaker-heartbreak maker
The devil in disguise
Bleeding me dry just to get your kicks
Why don’t you find someone else to terrorize
You’re a ballbreaker-heartbreak maker

Ballbreaker

-VERSE1-
It ain’t fair – You want what’s over here
But the mountain is too high-so you’re staying over there
It ain’t right – You shouldn’t have to fight
You want everything handed to you- everything in sight
-PRE-CHORUS-
The are plenty of people everywhere falling on harder times
So put yourself in their place and change you state of mind
-CHORUS-
Cuz I haven’t got the time
To listen to you whine…
About everything stacked against you-how it’s such a crime
No I haven’t got the time
To listen to you whine….
You live your life and I'll live mine
…Cuz I haven’t got the time.
-VERSE 2-
It ain’t fair-to throw your words without a care
Thinking they mean nothing but someone’s hurting somewhere
It ain’t right-when you hate everyone in sight
Because it’s the love that gets us through the night
-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-
-BRIDGE-
What’s going on with people today
When it’s time to fight they'd rather run away
If you wanna say you won then you’d better get it done
Why not try to make a better day.

Haven't Got the Time

-VERSE 1 –
We’ve all been there
Where that someone catches our eye
We’ve all been there
Hoping that the moment doesn’t pass us by

-CHORUS-
I need to know you
I really wanna know your name
I need to know you
Come on let’s play the game
Where we tease each other from across the room - with our eyes
Waiting for the other to come on over and say “Hi”
I need to know you
I really wanna know your name

-VERSE 2-
Caught in a trance
Too afraid to take a chance
What are ya gonna do
You think you have all night
But ya better make a move
Or ya gonna lose

-BRIDGE-
Just be yourself
Forget those pickup lines
Introduce yourself
Before your out of time

-CHORUS-

I Need to Know You

-VERSE 1-
She’s my drug-she’s my ecstasy
And I’m hooked on her special kind of crazy
I want more-Please give me more
She’s got me fiending just like a crack whore

-PRE-CHORUS-
One-hit-one-blow
One-shot-one-score

-CHORUS-
I wanna OVERDOSE “OVERDOSE”
I need another shot of her love
I wanna OVERDOSE “OVERDOSE”
She gets me high as the clouds above
I wanna swim between her thighs as I drown in her eyes
Leave me beggin’ for more
I wanna OVERDOSE “OVERDOSE”
I need another shot of her love

-VERSE 2-
Don’t need no doctor written RX
For her down home dirty sex
Just need to call in sick to work
Stay at home and watch that booty twerk

-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-

-OUTRO-
I wanna overdose
“Somebody help me”
I need to overdose
“On your sexual therapy”
-REPEAT/FADE-

Overdose
