Heart Reaction Love you all day I love you I say Don’t want to miss Your touch and your kiss With you beside me Nothing can defy me Pure satisfaction My heart reaction My heart reaction Is not just a click It’s power in action With you I stick My heart reaction Comes from a place Deep down inside me When I see your face Our love will go on From the dusk to the dawn From the deep of the ocean To the moon with emotion In Europe and Asia Africa and Australia In Antarctica And the Americas My heart reaction That beats in my chest Oh what a contraption It knows you are the best My heart reaction Not just an emoji You got some traction In how you control me Hand in hand together we stroll However we can together we roll I want to tell you if I may be so bold The second I saw you you know I was sold You are the sweetest story I’ve told When you’re not around it starts getting cold When angels made you they broke the mold Together forever with you I grow old

Man Can She Fight It’s only fair that I warn ya When she's backed into a corner She’ll go right for ya And surely destroy ya A quake in California Has got nothing on her She’s got so much power She’s no wallflower Man can she fight Man can she hit Man can she strike She’ll tear you to bits With teeth and with nails She’ll send you to hell My girl is alright Man can she fight Man can she fight Oh how she slays You’ll be out like a light While beside her I lay My head in safety I know she’s my shield She just amaze me She never yield Your bell she’ll be ringing And she’ll just be singing While her punches are stinging The fight she’ll be winning With quickness with speed She’s got all she needs Sets her anger free Puts you on your knees Man can she fight Oh how she slays You’ll be out like a light While beside her I lay My head in safety I know she’s my shield She just amaze me She never yield Man can she fight Man can she hit Man can she strike She’ll tear you to bits With teeth and with nails She’ll send you to hell My girl is alright Man can she fight Jab, jab, jab, jab, Feint, uppercut Sweep to the legs She’ll mess you up She don’t need no weapons She’s lethal already Don’t you be steppin’ She’s fast and she’s deadly She’s got all the moves All the time in the world Nobody messes With my little girl She’s my protector I'm safe in her bubble I’ll never reject her She’s my kind of trouble

Late Last Night Late last night while I was dreaming You stayed awake plotting and scheming Organizing your master plan Plotting the plunder of this poor man Someone you’ve been wrapping around your finger When you’re not around your energy lingers I know I know I’ve the scars to prove it No one escapes when you make your move It was late last night and I was frightened My teeth they clattered, my knuckles whitened The knot in my stomach surely tightened What hair I have surely lightened I think you might but I wish you mightn’t I regret being enlightened The lights are on and it’s too bright and It happened late last night You work your magic in the dark In the darkness you leave your mark Your lips caress and your hands touch But nobody can remember much It’s all a blur of passion’s facade As you dig for the great reward Undying, blind, their loyalty Believe that you are royalty Late last night it seemed so clear You’ve got me where you want me dear Can anyone my soul now save I am your forever slave My heart I give you on a platter You are the only one that matters I can say with certainty Your plan you pulled off perfectly Sometimes in dreams the truth I see The tightest hold you have on me I gave it to you willingly The choice was mine so I believe I’ll never know what is the truth No matter how long in the tooth I may grow as I lose my youth So in your arms I will be soothed Another soul in your collection For me you have a little section From you do I need some protection Late last night, I was reflecting

There’s Nothing Wrong I Can’t Fix with My Hands I’ll always stand tall because my mind is free Try as you might to put me on my knees Give me your oppression and I will defy it Show me your knot and I will untie it I’ve got all I need and my toolbox is full There is no task that is impossible There is no trouble I cannot withstand There’s nothing wrong I can’t fix with my hands There’s no such thing as luck, good or bad There’s only experiences to be had Whether or not it turns out in favour Is all up to you I don’t mean to belabour The point that even your problems are blessings So don’t you be fretting and don’t you be stressing By the dawn’s early light oh say can you see A problem is just an opportunity There’s nothing wrong I can’t fix with my hands There is no trouble I cannot withstand There is no task that is impossible I’ve got all I need and my toolbox is full Show me your knot and I will untie it Give me your oppression and I will defy it Try as you might to put me on my knees I’ll always stand tall because my mind is free Give me your tired your poor and your weak I’ll have them square dancing in less than a week Just clear out your mind of all of that garbage Clear away all of the mess and the carnage From what happened yesterday and before Get over it now there will only be more But fear not the future and forget the past The present’s the only true moment that lasts No matter the company you keep Don’t let yourself be a sheep Who always follows the dog And spend your time in the fog I do not mean to shock you But you have followed a flock who Are headed right for the pack Of wolves just dying to attack I’ll always stand tall because my mind is free Try as you might to put me on my knees Give me your oppression and I will defy it Show me your knot and I will untie it I’ve got all I need and my toolbox is full There is no task that is impossible There is no trouble I cannot withstand There’s nothing wrong I can’t fix with my hands

Sacrifice Hate Kiss it goodbye It’s never too late Oh won’t you try To open your heart To those who need Open your heart You will be freed No Divine Creator Just energy and time Configurations Your existence and mine Drops in the ocean Atoms in space A tick of the second hand This human race Sacrifice hate On the altar of love Stop asking forgiveness From the sky above There is no God Nor a Devil neither There is only us That I believe in All of your actions Butterflies’ wings Flapping and changing Just everything It’s all connected Even what you can’t see A force that connects us Between you and me Things change ever faster As we move on Just agitating Neutrons and protons Looks at the past See what we’ve been Imagine tomorrow And what it will bring Sacrifice hate Its time is long gone Goodbye anger Your time is done We no longer need you You no longer serve We no longer feed you You do not deserve

Lure me to my depths
Lure me to my death Take my last steps Take my last breath Lure me to the deep To the bottom of my ocean The descent is steep To the seed of my emotion Siren calling Turn the wheel Fly the flag Grab the steel We know well It is a trap Still we sail Into the black Lure me to the deep To the bottom of my ocean The descent is steep To the seed of my emotion Lure me to my depths
Lure me to my death Take my last steps Take my last breath Rough and rougher Unforgiving Tough and Tougher We the living Darkness falls Waves do rise Clouded moon Time to die There is no name For what you are Leviathan Man O’ War They can’t describe The horror pure Unholy thing Death assured But you we seek Our souls ensured So much lost We are inured Drag us down Drag us far Because you are Just what we are

THE BALLAD OF BOBA FETT Born in cold laboratory Cloned from Jango he was you see On Kamino he growed up Until Obi Wan Kenobi showed up They had to run, they had to flee His bounty hunter dad and he That Jedi followed them the closest Until they got to Geonosis Boba Fett, Boba Fett Don’t you worry, Don’t you fret You will make it, You will get What you deserve yet, Yes you bet Jango captured Anakin And Padme who had come with him With Obi Wan they were put in the arena To die in ways that could have been cleaner But they Jedi those party poopers Arrived with many new stormtroopers By Yoda himself they were led And Mace Windu took Jango’s head Boba Fett, Boba Fett You will have Your revenge yet Now your destiny is set The Empire’s bounties you will collect You went on to become a man Raised by a traveling criminal clan Thieving, spying, kidnapping No one ever caught you napping Many beings you did met All while keeping Jango’s helmet Surviving any way you can Until you grew into a man Boba Fett, Boba Fett Only those live who you let On you my money I do bet Bounty hunter Boba Fett Commissioned by Jabba and also Vader You found Solo sooner or later Encased him good in carbonite And brought him for the Hutt’s delight But, and this really makes me puke Along came that new Jedi Luke He and his friends stirred up the shit And you ended up in the Sarlaac Pit. Boba Fett, Boba Fett Now you’re just the monster’s diet Now you are no longer a threat Now you will be forever quiet Boba Fett, oh Boba Fett You were the Empire’s secret asset Now you’ve paid the final debt Boba we shall not forget

Try Harder 03:20
2020 has come and gone Now finally can’t we all get along As we head into 2021 Let’s make a resolution to lift up everyone Gotta stop thinking just of ourselves And take the time to help someone else What good is it to make it to the top If we find ourselves all alone Don’t cry Try harder You gotta step foot out of the yard, ya Never been one to say that’s too bad Never met the problem that can make me sad Never look to others for satisfaction I’ve got all the power in my reaction Give me some momentum and a little traction And I will go all the way and all he way back son You don’t know, your problems are a gift Opportunities to be a survivalist Everything’s a strain if you say it is Everything’s a pain if you make it sis Everything’s a gift when you look at it You just gotta shift how you look at it Let me give you motivation Even on. cloudy day there is the sun Whether it shines or it is hidden It gives us all the energy to become one With one another, sister and brother Do all that you can to lift up one another Remember your mother, the life that she gave you You gotta give your life it is all that will save you
