Track Name: Footpads
Verse 1:
Feel short, New York, travel three whole days with the footpads aid and a fine tune
Top down Manhattan, Garden, Top of the Rock, let ya feel the shock with a blue moon
Felt good at the Time Squares walkin', the funny man's talkin and hes tryin to sell you,
La da da da da da da just me my old man and some comfortable shoes

Chorus:
Praise the golden neon lights of love we sing,
Like my old man says nothin stays the same,
Red, blue and gold will make your sunset sing,
N like my old man says I'll love my life

Verse 2:
Hey, come dance with me, naked in the sun with the raindrops fallin down, Come soon you'll see the summer is all I can hold in my hand (X2)

Break:
Sitting, waiting, for you to look my way, cause you've been neglecting all that I've had to say
And I'm not here to trick you, I need to let you know, that if you got plans honey you're gonna have to break it, cause a midwest sunsets so underrated
Track Name: This n' That
Verse 1:
Sweet, sweet, caressing, the love that you find confessing, while I envelope you,
No time second guessing, these problems we're addressing, while I confess to soon,
O you, yea you never broke for me, I'm finding it hard to breathe, lovin the way you got it all the time,
O you, yea you never broke for me, and I'm finding it hard to see, lovin the haze you got it all the time

Break:
Cause nothing really comes at the perfect time

Verse 2:
O thin walls you are testing, the armistice you're progressing, you think you've got too much to lose,
Strange woman, all the best things, they happen while you're dancing, you know Bing was tellin the truth
O please, lose the anger you feed, take a moment and breathe, its not the way you get it off your mind,
Please, take this opportunity to lose yourself and sing, move your feet, we do it all the time

Chorus:
Cause in my generation, unity is the key, so come pick a new friend, and the music will lead
Cause in my generation, it has proven to be, in a state of attention at least from what I can see
So come pick your poison, and the music will lead, cause in my generation we move our feet

Verse 3:
Cause when you go to this place, where the birds and the bees fly,
What you'll find is a trace of love strewn across a starry sky,
And nothing really comes at the perfect time,
So this n' that, n' those n these, all hes and shes, simply move your feet

Chorus:
O in my generation, unity is the key, cause in my generation we move our feet!
Track Name: Boiling Point
Verse 1:
Its 3 AM again and I'll start my friend, by saying that I won't remember much of this at all
Its been a long day, with an even longer week, and this lack of sleeps got me thinkin things aren't right
O, they say I've reached my boiling point

Chorus:
So caught up in the best, they forget who rest is, forget who the rest is,
So caught up in the best, they forget who the rest is, forget who the rest is,
So caught up in the quest, it leaves me breathless, leaves me breathless,
So caught up in the best, they forget who the rest is, forget who the rest is.

Verse 2:
They say I'm Sherlock Holmes, with a broken nose and a fat jaw closed, they think my mind aint right,
600 in the hole, and this food I stole, might not get me through the night,
O, they say I've reached my boiling point

Verse 3:
O momma come save me, lady come stay, Mona Lisa I see you but only when my mind is right,
O its windy I know, but its better than snow, and just when you go don't you explain so you think you're right
O, they say I've reached my boiling point
Track Name: We Are Not Alone (Lina's Song)
Verse 1:
I know you're with me when I feel this sweet summertime glow,
Its been a while but every person knows, we are not alone.
I feel your presence blowing through the trees,
Your beauty permeates along our streams, you are not alone.

Chorus:
She was made for the sky, she sings for the sea,
O she is the love on the earth, the air that we breathe,
All passionate fashion, her smile is the light in the daytime,
And we're all so- (grateful)

Verse 2:
We believe, we believe what we believe because we've felt your love,
We are not alone.
Silently, we get to be with our Colombian Queen,
We are not alone.

Break:
O, its been awhile but I need someone to speak to,
I see your face when I look in the clouds.

Outro:
It wasn't long that I looked up into the sky today,
With my favorite companion we reflect upon your gracious ways,
Without a verbal connection we looked out on the western sky,
Please come back if you feel holy Lina, cause I feel it too.

I feel it too (I feel it too)
Track Name: Uncle Ricky
Verse 1:
O Uncle Rick, gettin down with the sick, just an old school punk for the funk,
Nappy old hair preachin war ain't fair, trampin' west coast after the sun,
Livin' life so wild he's a joke to the mild, seeing days of the world without pain,
Just a Vietnam Vet hopin life ain't spent singin songs in the key of the youth

Break:
La, la, la, la, Uncle Ricky your swags so tricky
La, la, la, la, la, savor all the good that ya got.
La, la, la, la, la, Uncle Ricky your thoughts' so trippy
La, la, la, la, la, this song'll be alive when you're not

Chorus:
Sunshine on a western sky you can see the sparkle in his eye,
Anywhere all over the map he ain't stoppin til the troops come back,
Sunshine on a western sky, or eastern sky, to him he don't mind,
Anywhere all over the map, he ain't stoppin til the troops come back,
Sunshine on a western sky, you can see the sparkle in his eye,
Anywhere all over the map, he ain't stoppin til the troops come back,
Sunshine on a western sky, city lights illuminate the horizon,
Anywhere all over the map, he ain't stoppin til the troops come back.

Verse: 2
One day in he's lookin n' wantin' to find, a common ground for all of us to reside,
Where the green comes free and the parties come heavy, where love don't deceive, but aloud to see plenty
Peace in his mind, in his eyes, in his soul, no matter the path his mind finds to fold,
Could be a long trip for crazy Uncle Rick, but safe travels to ya man if we don't meet before ya split.
