    Wanna Be

    WANNA BE

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree
    I wanna be like a fish
    Have the freedom of the sea
    But walking on two feet
    That’s where you will find me

    Up in the morning and I take a stand
    All is going just the way I planned
    The boys the girls the kids in agony
    Tell them freedom is my remedy
    Retribution, no solution
    We’re all apart of the institution
    A recession no digression
    It’s an obsession

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree
    I wanna be like a fish
    Have the freedom of the sea
    But walking on two feet
    That’s where you will find me

    Stampede of greed
    Can’t you see that’s the last thing we need
    You see our hate is our fate
    It’s what we anticipate
    Get the rhythm and the rhyme
    Wouldn’t it be nice to have a good time
    You’ll benefit from getting with it
    Just for a minute

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree
    I wanna be like a fish
    Have the freedom of the sea
    But walking on two feet
    That’s where you will find me

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree

    This Highway

    THIS HIGHWAY

    Look into my eyes, tell me how far can you see
    Can you see the dream, is it coming true, or is it just a fantasy
    Look at me and stare, I never quite knew why you cared
    I never quite knew why you

    You mock my want for infamy
    Though I kinda liked the jealousy
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And from that I will not stray
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway

    Look into my eyes, tell me can you see what I see
    A definition and a vision of a hero lies in me
    You look at me so cold, not everything you touch is gold
    Not everything is gold you

    You mock my want for infamy
    Though I kinda liked the jealousy
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And from that I will not stray
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And it’s all I know to do
    It’s all I know to do

    You mock my want for infamy
    Though I kinda liked the jealousy
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And from that I will not stray
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway

    Look into my eyes
    I just want to wish you well, wish you well, wish you well, in your hell
    Look into my…

    Jungle Beat

    JUNGLE BEAT

    You know to be alone has a negative implication
    Is it alone by choice or a fear of being shunned
    Can a fear of being lonely really be a fear of failure
    And can this fear become a fearful nature
    These insecurities have got me walking on my knees
    I know exactly what I please, but my mind is ill at ease
    It’s not easy for me to lay my hopes and feelings down on the line
    But the price of failure weighs heavy of my mind

    I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
    When the outside world turns up the heat
    When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
    When the problems just seem to be outta hand
    I get the music out and it’s swinging about
    And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
    I can’t be down or even wear a frown
    ‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

    My problems may not leave me
    But the beat has lifted me inside
    My soul has begun to smile
    Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while

    The microscope that we aim at ourselves
    Is amazingly powerful in the depths that it delves
    My new flaws in our self conception
    Are seen as giant cracks by our inspection
    Now these flaws they’re traits of every man and woman
    They make us what we are, but they keep up from being open
    Nobody wants to see those flaws exposed
    But the fact of the matter is son that’s a door we can’t keep closed

    I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
    When the outside world turns up the heat
    When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
    When the problems just seem to be outta hand
    I get the music out and it’s swinging about
    And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
    I can’t be down or even wear a frown
    ‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

    My problems may not leave me
    But the beat has lifted me inside
    My soul has begun to smile
    Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while

    I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
    When the outside world turns up the heat
    When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
    When the problems just seem to be outta hand
    I get the music out and it’s swinging about
    And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
    I can’t be down or even wear a frown
    ‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

    My problems may not leave me
    But the beat has lifted me inside
    My soul has begun to smile
    Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while
    (Repeat)

    Better Way

    BETTER WAY

    I wouldn’t call this a love song
    I didn’t write it ‘cause I did something wrong
    Just a better way to show you how I feel
    Just a better way to show you I’m for real

    You never treated me good, but you never treated me bad
    Thought I knew where we stood, all it took to make you mad
    You asked me to leave then you wanted me to stay
    Better make up your mind either way

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    I wouldn’t call this a love song
    I didn’t write it ‘cause I did something wrong
    Just a better way to show you how I feel
    Just a better way to show you I’m for real

    You really liked me, I was so in love with you
    But I never acted my age, or be who you wanted me to
    So you say you’re through with trying, it’s time to turn the page
    Never gonna leave me crying, so why don’t you stay

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    I wouldn’t call this a love song
    I didn’t write it ‘cause I did something wrong
    Just a better way to show you how I feel
    Just a better way to show you I’m for real

    I never acted my age and I never wore the right clothes
    Well at least I didn’t have an earring in my nose

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    Why Me

    WHY ME

    I woke up on the wrong side of the bed
    It’s days like these my mama said I would dread
    Like to get nice and clean, but all the hot water is gone
    God dam have to shower with a bottle of cheep cologne
    Late for a very important date again
    Speed up leave a cloud of dust at least the engine isn’t dead
    Up ahead every light I see turns from green to yellow to red
    Every block that I stop I bang the steering wheel with my head

    Tell me why, everything’s a formality
    Tell me why, we always disagree
    Tell me why, I wallow in my own pity
    Could happen to anyone in this city
    Why me

    Another day another dime another sign another dollar that I spend
    Another time another rhyme another opinion to defend
    Boss man got me twenty things to do
    Not in a state to concentrate with this dog crap on my shoe
    Don’t you lie, don’t you patronize, you say you’ve been here before
    Ain’t life just a grand slam when it’s kicking your posterior
    Say man look at the bright side the days not over yet
    Things can’t get any worse I say wanna bet

    Tell me why, everything’s a formality
    Tell me why, we always disagree
    Tell me why, I wallow in my own pity
    Could happen to anyone in this city
    Why me

    Tell me why, everything’s a formality
    Tell me why, we always disagree
    Tell me why, I waddle in my own pity
    Could happen to anyone in this city

    Tell me why, my song is so shitty
    Tell me why, I suck at Jeopardy
    Tell me why, you’re looking so pretty
    Tell me why, I can’t be too sexy
    Why me

    Pittsburgh

    PITTSBURGH

    You flew in from Pittsburgh just the other day
    So much on your mind so little to say
    I asked all the questions and waited for the answers
    But your only reply was a tear from your eye

    You flew in from Pittsburgh just the other day
    Left your man back East with your love all frayed
    Now you’re searching for the comfort of old homes bed
    When you should be seeking the comfort of a long lost friend

    And I said, when you find what love is for
    I’ll be right inside my door
    When you leave your prince’s kingdom
    I hope you come knocking

    You flew back to Pittsburgh just the other day
    With your eyes all dry, nothing left to say
    I’m left here again with my heart in my hands
    With all love ails cured, still part of me is sad

    And I said, when you find what love is for
    I’ll be right inside my door
    When you leave your prince’s kingdom
    I hope you come knocking
