Track Name: Don't Stop Me (When I'm In My Groove)
When I feel like dancing, when I feel like getting groovy
I wanna hear my favorite song, DJ play it to me
‘Cause when I feel like dancing something inside it moves me
So grab your girls get on the floor, and if it feels right do it

We go out dancing we just keep on pushing to the front
Gotta get up on that dancefloor
There’ll be sweatin’ maybe just a little regrettin’
But you don’t stop me when I’m in my groove

When I feel like dancing, when I feel like getting groovy
I wanna hear all my favorite songs so you better put ‘em on
‘Cause when I feel like dancing I gotta grab my girls on the dancefloor with me
We’ll be cutting a rug and all you boys can get up
And if it feels right we’re gonna keep on doing it yeah

We go out dancing we just keep on pushing to the front
Gotta get up on that dancefloor
There’ll be sweatin’ maybe just a little regrettin’
But you don’t stop me when I’m in my groove
Track Name: Sidewalk
You shouldn’t ride your bike on the sidewalk
There’s only so much space for my feet to walk
Too much outdoor seating on my block
This lack of freedom’s turning me into a time bomb

You shouldn’t drop your trash on the sidewalk
There’s too many kids outside with their sidewalk chalk
Spew it up your smokestacks early so no one can watch
Don’t educate the kids so they turn into a flash mob

You shouldn’t feed the hungry on the sidewalk
The Health department says it’s against the law
But you can get shot not doing anything at all
Said this lack of freedom’s turning me into a time bomb

You better stay in your lane here on my block / (when you’re on my block?)
Stare out your window like you’re the neighborhood watch
Hey lady, Nobody cares if you think I’m right or I’m wrong
But this lack of freedom’s turning me into a time bomb

Still I’m here wondering where’s my funking sidewalk?… like where did it go?
Track Name: Good News Ponies
You’re bad news
You leave every girl that you meet with the blues
I was into you
but as your charm wore off I came to learn the truth
Yeah you’re bad news
I’ll say it louder so I won’t be misconstrued
You’re up to no good
I need to go but I’m stuck to you like glue
(can’t quitcha, gotta ditcha)
Yeah I gotta leave
Yeah I gotta go

Now I’ve got to choose
In each and every scenario I lose
‘Cause I was good to you
Now I’m warning all the girls so they don’t fall for your rouse yeah
You’re no good
I’ll say it one more time so you’ll know that it’s true
My heart is in my throat I know I’ve got to go
You’ve done me wrong and I can’t take it no more

Yeah I gotta leave
Yeah I gotta go

Yeah I gotta leave, I gotta go
I gotta leave gotta go can’t take anymore
I gotta leave, Yeah I gotta go, You know, you know
Track Name: Not How I Fly
Run and try to hide when things get funky
That’s not my style, Not how I fly
Blissfully ignore the world outside you
Living in denial - not how I fly

Things will stay the same
and if you want things to ever change you need to learn the truth
I don’t think it’s fair
for your to act like you even care like you even do?

See if you can try to look outside your life?
Can you even try? Because now’s the time
Or keep on putting big old band-aids on your problems
But it’s not how I am gonna handle mine

Things will stay the same
and if you want things to ever change you need to hear the truth - you do
I don’t think it’s fair for you to act like you even care like you even could
It’s all up to you - and you know it!

Run and try to hide when things get fucked up
That’s your style. That’s just how you fly
Pretending everything is great and there’s no problems
That’s not gonna solve it - No, no, no, no

I think it’s time to change, I think it’s time for us to re-arrange things
I really do, I really think we should
I don’t think it’s fair for you to act like you even care like you even do
It’s all up to you and you know it
Track Name: Step It Up
I hear a voice it tells me I have no choice
It lies to me
Same old sounds follow me around
Compromising everything I see

You don’t appear as you truly seem to be but you can be
your truest self without a care or worry

Been down that road many, many times before
Stare down the wrong hole and a serpent pops up to bite you
It’s good as gold to know we still got a ways to go
But we’ve all got to carry our own load
But wrong or right ya - wrong or right you gotta step it up

I seek advice you tell me the same thing twice
It ain’t my style, no no
It’s getting loud but you know that I’m too proud
find my own way to drown it out

You can disappear hide your face from all you see
But then you can never be your truest self
Without a care or worry

Been down that road many, many times before
Stare down the wrong hole and a serpent pops up to bite you
I been told you know we still got a ways to go
And we’ve all got to carry our own load
But wrong or right ya - wrong or right you gotta step it up

Been down that road many, many times before
Stare down the wrong hole and a serpent pops up to bite you
I been told you know we still got a ways to go
And we’ve all got to carry our own load
But wrong or right ya - wrong or right you gotta step it up
Track Name: Pteradon
Pteradon, where have you gone?
Pteradon, where have you gone?

Meteor. Dead for sure.
