Track Name: Revival
Song: Revival
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 68 Key: F#

I can see our love could use revival
Spend our days just fighting for survival
So before we lay our hands down on a bible
Let's lay aside this shit for what is vital

(Verse 1)
I wanna see you, woman, for the woman you are
Wanna hear you cry, I wanna play with your scars
Come back to me, I could be that man
Don't trust me, I can understand.

You can hear me yelling from the bottom of a well

(Verse 2)
I wanna roll it back and start it over again
Now that I'm your lover, we can never be friends
Take a look around, and you can see whatcha see
You're gonna wind up, down here yelling with me

Now you hear me yelling from the bottom of a well
Track Name: One Drink
Song: One Drink
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 67 Key: C#m

(Verse 1)
When you go lookin' 'round
For girls whose legs are lean
Find one in any town
Lookin' better than a magazine
She's searchin' for a private eye,
And yeah, she travels by pogo stick
They call me Mr. Tracy girl
But you can call me Dick

I saw her cross the room,
And so I make a move
She says to buy her booze,
And then she's... mine...

One Drink, yeah, she's a lady
Two more, she wants to have my baby
Three nights, holed up in her room
Four days with a boom chicka boom boom
Tell ya boy, well, ya better think twice
These bar stool girls, they look so nice
But they come with bags, that'll make you mad, lord

(Verse 2)
When you go lookin' 'round
For girls real long and lean
Find one in any town
Burns hotter than gasoline
She's thumbin' for a freeway ride
As she's dancin' in her go-go boots
I got me a tommy gun
And this thing's trained to shoot
Track Name: I Can Sing
Song: I Can Sing
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 190 / 115 Key: E

(Verse 1)
When I was a boy, long before my voice
Ever dropped down to baritone
I could sing higher than the girls in the choir
And I played a mean saxophone
All the teachers said, my ass from my head
Well that boy didn't know
What they couldn't see, was deep inside of me
I could sing

(Verse 2)
When I was a boy, I would wish for toy
Soldiers and plastic guns
I gave up all my slingshots, so I could make these strings drop
Into some funky flashy runs
When my parents said, “Son, it's time for bed"
Well they just didn't know
Never did I sleep, for I live inside this dream
Where I can sing
Track Name: Jam Right
Song: Jam Right
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 118 Key: Em

(Verse 1)
Uh... We gonna beat the beat,
Rock it till the song admit defeat
Kick drum bangs like a bitch in heat, uh
Percolate like it's '93
Get up on ya feet, move to the rhythm
Spinnin' on repeat, now let's get sinnin'
This is the beginnin', nightlife ya livin'
Track so wild, all the young ones give in.

C'mon, C'mon...Time to get useless
Drink so much, go on and get stupid
C'mon, C'mon...Spit game fluent
Ladies all on me, callin' me cupid
C'mon, C'mon...Dance so fast
Straight off the Richter, shake that ass
C'mon, C'mon...Feel that heat
Get up with the fist pump, beat the beat

(Chorus 4x)
C'mon, Beat the beat, beat the beat, beat the beat.
(We gotta set the jam right)

(Verse 2)
Uh, We gonna hurt the floor
Get murked to a track you aint heard before
If ya DTF like in Jersey Shore
Take a bathroom tour with a dirty whore
That bass be bumpin' so hard
Punchy keys, plus that crunchy guitar
Girls jumpin up on that bar
Her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

I see you dancin'....alright
Wanna take this party straight into the sunrise
I've been plannin'.... all night
Aint no stoppin, babe, givin me the green light
And it all started with that song
We can make it last forever
Keep it bumpin' all night long... on and on and on
Track Name: Hear Me Play
Song: Hear Me Play
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 54 Key: Am

(Verse 1)
I can't sleep, can't turn away
Just to hear you breathe, just to hold your face
I'd scorch the world, just to take his place
Be my girl, just hear me play

(Verse 2)
I can't speak, words get in the way
Just to see you bleed, just to hear you pray
I've come too far, to let you walk away
I'm torn apart, just hear me play
Track Name: Lauren Marie
Song: Lauren Marie
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 68 Key: E

(Verse 1)
She's short, and she's Irish,
And she swears like a pirate
She's the only woman I see
She could've been a major
Leading all the army rangers
But she's wasted all her orders on me
She's more sweet than scary
Though she's far from ordinary
Unlike any woman I meet
Some girls would have their tooth pulled
'for they'd ever be as truthful
As my sweet Lauren Marie

Long before the sun is up
She's running through my dreams
So I sat up and I wrote this song
Just so I could sing her name...

(Chorus) E C#m
Lauren... Lauren... Lauren... Lauren Marie (2x)

(Verse 2)
There's no silent moment
Cause her mouth is always open
Her voice, it sets my demons at ease
She covers up her tattoos
And she'll only dance to fat blues
Wears her hair down to her feet
Her eyes are grey and stormy
And at first they tried to warn me
One glance pushed me head over feet
You know where this boys heart is
It belongs to the finest artist,
She signs her name as Lauren Marie
Track Name: Till Death
Song: Till Death
Album: Some Funky Flashy Runs (2011)
BPM: 118 Key: C#m

(Verse 1)
If he had known from the very first day
That he'd lie alone with no lover to lay
Could he stand to stand in her way
Or were her dreams too big for this simple boy's brain
That first kiss when he gave it away
When he chased her down on the playgrounds they played
If he held his tongue and left it to fate
Would he lie alone

(Verse 1)
If she had known from the very first day
That he'd lie alone with no lover to lay
Would she choose to push him away
Or would she still love him just for love's sake
That first kiss when she gave it away
Is it seared in her mind as a selfish mistake
If she had known that she'd fall away
Would he lie alone
