Track Name: Dirty Girls
Living on the freeland, broke into my car
no job no bank account, can't imagine that he'd make it far
he's going out at midnight, a chemical invades his brain
smashed in my window, and stepped foot upon my terrain

a revolution's what i'm starting, upon my own land
firing up a war against the enemy,
taking lives cause they think they can
and i'm fighting for freedom, cause freedom's all i got
looking forward to the aftermath when we can all legally buy pot,

i'm living on that highlife, every single day
white sandy beaches is what i see delivered to me on a silver tray
dont' you wanna ride with me take a look upon the other side
come on and take a slide with me, view the world through the criminal eye

and i believe,
dirty girls on the weekend,
dirty girls at night,
riding me down the highway
makes me drive alright,
and i'm fighting for freedom,
cause freedom's all i got
looking forward to the aftermath
when we can all legally buy pot

you watch a million people, they all seem the same,
survive and die in the chaotic world the
local goverments the one to blame
the sun barley rises the moon rarley sets,
and on nights where there ain't no fights,
its a blessing you better check

dirty girls on the weekend,
dirty girls at night,
riding me down the highway,
makes me drive alright
and i'm fighting for freedom,
cause freedom's all i got
looking forward to the aftermath
when we can all legally buy pot

a revolution's what i'm starting, upon my own land
firing up a war against the enemy,
taking lives cause they think they can
and i'm fighting for freedom, cause freedom's all i got
looking forward to the aftermath when we can all legally buy pot
Track Name: Bloo Bucket
Pure white cain there's a cold hearted killer in my house
see my trigger finger hold your breath watch the bullet fly out

you weren't home, when i got back like you said you would
and this guy, he's creeping round my neighborhood


from my own shadow i can't run
whats that your girlfriend, cause she really made me cum
Look into my eyes, you can't satisfy my high


wanna see the world i've been struggling for way to long
plastered to the couch my ambitions caught up in this bong

and you brag, you live your life like a millionare
and its sad, you pay your bills from a plastic chair


oh from my own shadow i can't run
whats that your girlfriend, cause she really made me cum
Look into my eyes, you can't satisfy my high


woke up in the morning, poured myself some tea
opened up the paper, that i read so rightously
and i saw my own picture, i was lying in the street
was this true life reality, or was i still dead asleep
i need to, slow down and completey stop
listen to my own damn self and smoke pot

forget about the other problems life can offer
and offer and offer and offer
slow down and offer, slow down and offer

Pure white cain there's a cold hearted killer in my house
see my trigger finger hold your breath watch the bullet fly out

you weren't home, when i got back like you said you would
and this guy, he's creeping round my neighborhood


from my own shadow i can't run
whats that your girlfriend, cause she really made me cum
Look into my eyes, you can't satisfy my high
Track Name: Your Eyes
feeling lonely, in this town i'm living in
feeling lonely, don't know where i should begin
feeling lonely, and i need some empty space
and i told her truthfully and i said this to her face

my my my my, your eyes look beautiful tonight
your eyes look beautiful thats right, thats right
your eyes look beautiful don't you want to figure it out
your eyes look beautiful

started drinking, could there be any other way
maybe i should should just walk on by remenise upon another day
if she ever happens to walk on by finds a reason i don't know what i'd say
mericles don't happen to me, i lost it all in may

my my my my, your eyes looked beautiful that night
your eyes look beautiful thats right thats right
and i'll drown in deep desire for a day in paradise
your eyes look beautiful

feeling lonely in this town i'm living in
feeling lonely don't know where i should begin
if you ever happen to walk on by find a reason than come on in
we'll blaze together, and i hope it never ends

my my my my, your eyes looked beautiful that night
your eyes look beautiful thats right thats right
and i'll drown in deep desire for a day in paradise
your eyes look beautiful
Track Name: Be Alright
Held up tight, i know its right, and i lost track of time
like summers rain not often, can you lead the way i'm blind

but its not easy how these cloudy sky's block short my mind
damn its tough but i'll make it through with you there by my side

i've seen enough just hold me down
feel like a king and i wear my crown

i dont' know why but i don't mind its her

everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright its her

she's the type of girl who turns me on
in the middle of the night, when the mood is right
she'll go as far to even prove me wrong,
when i know damn well what i'm talking about and i sing it in this song

caught in the mix, i look up high
look to the sun and i burn my eyes
i dont' know why, but i don't mind its her

everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright its her

i've stood and watched god only knows how long,
and its about time i stepped it up while my mental strength is strong
three years ago my normal life was gone,
and i'm back on top whith a bottle of scotch not sure what i did wrong

stuck in the grid, i scream out loud
jump off the stage and into the crowd
i don't know why, but i don't mind its her

everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright its her

one more time

everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright, everything'll be alright its her
Track Name: Something New
Fell to a thousand pieces the day we met for the very first time , oh ya
and i made up a million reasons trying to compare your life to mine, oh ya

but all i need in life, is some loving everyday
and i swear to god that evening was the first time that i prayed
for something new

i hit up a local saloon, so i could get a little bfunk action in my brain
and the big fat yellow balloon, that i see in front of my eyes makes me insane

but all i need in life, is some loving everyday
and i swear to god that evening was the first time that i prayed
for something new


i fell to a thousand pieces the day we met for the very last time, oh ya
and i couldn't imagine the future now, the road i always travel i'm traveling blind

but all i need in life, is some loving everyday
and i swear to god that evening was the first time that i prayed
for something new
Track Name: DeerPark N Madison
Chilling on the patio by myself
thinking bout the good times and my health
god weighs down my shoulders to make it rough
i know i can make it because i'm tough

shure don't know the meaning of my life
i've got self protection i've got my knife
believe me when i say that i don't know
please dont' take me from my home

and i was drinking from the morning into the night
days have been kind of hectic i'll tell you why, oh why
thinking bout the afterlife and my soul
ya and i'm wondering when i die is that where i'll go
hopefully it won't be sometime soon
cause i haven't had the chance to walk the moon
believe me when i say that i dont' care
you'll find me playing guitar anywhere
and i said

strike me down, and i'll find another way
tell me no, i won't listen to what you say
the love from this music, this love won't let you down
and if i lose that, i'll be six feet, six feet underground

and i was playing at the joint on a friday night,
McGrath is on the drums and he plays it tight
you got my Bonus on the right who plays this sick damn guitar
Bonus is the man who'll take you far
Jason's playing this fat bassline that we wrote
and you're looking at this band and you're telling me we're out of control
out of control
believe me when i say that i dont' care
you'll find me playing guitar anywhere
and i said


strike me down, and i'll find another way
tell me no, i won't listen to what you say
the love from this music, this love won't let you down
and if i lose that, i'll be six feet, six feet underground


solo

strike me down, and i'll find another way
tell me no, i won't listen to what you say
the love from this music, this love won't let you down
and if i lose that, i'll be six feet, six feet underground
Track Name: Ain't Coming Home Tonight
The way that she moves, turns me on
the way that she grooves, when i play this song
i'm gonna make love to ya lady, all night ya all night long

the way that she breaths, when we're getting it on
the way that she screams, when the lights ain't on
i'm gonna make love to ya lady, all night ya, all night long

and i ain't coming home, anytime soon
this lady's staring, staring at me, ya at the bar
staring at my from a, from a far,
the soft words of can i buy you drink grabbed ahold of me
now i'm out in the car
out on the highway, there's no going back, and this fine lady
she's got a gun to my back

i'm gonna make love to ya lady, all night ya all night long

and i ain't coming home, anytime soon
i'm gonna make love to ya lady.....

she's fine like a bottle of wine, and eye for and eye, ya dont' realize

ya lead me along, then ya push me aside
i love the way ya do me love the way ya do me
love the way ya do me god damn the way ya do me

and i ain't coming home, anytime soon

Track Name: It Ain't Easy
Its not as easy as you think it is
to be playing on time
its not as easy as you think it is
its what helped me write this rhyme
see man
you gotta flow with the indo its not what you see not what you see
you gotta flow with the indo its not what you see not what you see

so sit back and relax your mind, memories packed away back within your mind
you gotta let yourself fly on this phat bassline if you could only know the reason
why we play on time

oh, ya ya ya ya, we be jammin everyday, like i said

smoke some trees, we be livin in a land of dreams, and fake reality
so hold on please don't you know its make believe,
smoke some trees, we be livin in a land of dreams, and fake reality
so hold on please don't you know its make believe

oh, ya ya ya ya, we be jammin everyday, like i said

dance to the ashes of the bridges i've burned
lessons i've learned no need for concern
sunlight soaking and a dance for the day
crawl as we're critter from political prey
to the mothers and the fathers of our own slain sons
the devils and the bullets of the green guided guns
take me away to the land of the free, where i can sit down and be what i can be

oh, ya ya ya ya, we be jammin everyday, like i said

i sold my soul to the devil one day, i sold it for fifty bucks
could have spent the money on something better off
like a pair of new skateboard trucks
the devil says to me he's feeling kinda week and he wants a new side kick
and i said yes and i woke up in the morning with a hot girl on my oh,....

oh, ya ya ya ya, we be jammin everyday, like i said

smoke some trees, we be livin in a land of dreams, and fake reality
so hold on please don't you know its make believe,
smoke some trees, we be livin in a land of dreams, and fake reality
so hold on please don't you know its make believe
Track Name: Say it in Sin
Wake me up in the monring and i'll give you some attitude
Keep me up and night and you'll see the same
i'll tempered i'm a man that can handle what you throw and me
i'll kick you out my house baby i don't play games

My life is simmering down
down to the devils front door
please don't ask me no questions
cause i don't know myself , don't bother me no more

say it in sin , say it again, your life is hell well mine is times ten,
ask me know and i'll tell you later
and i look high into the sky , my head above the clouds in the star lite night
ask my now and i'll tell you later

life ain't simple or easy, i feel i'm unwanted
late at night it gets creepy and it feels like its haunted
lay low say your prayers just imagine that you'll make it through
it ain't bad just a dream we've all had and i'm begging you

My life is simmering down
down to the devils front door
please don't ask me no questions
cause i don't know myself , don't bother me no more


if i screamed out loud do you think you would hear me
surviving day by day it ain't the future that i forsee, that i forsee
and its true i love the music so much that it can hurt so bad, hurt so bad
it ain't cool it ain't new, not as simple as the newest fad

My life is simmering down
down to the devils front door
please don't ask me no questions
cause i don't know myself , don't bother me no more

say it in sin , say it again, your life is hell well mine is times ten,
ask me know and i'll tell you later
and i look high into the sky , my head above the clouds in the star lite night
ask my now and i'll tell you later

say it in sin , say it again, your life is hell well mine is times ten,
ask me know and i'll tell you later
and i look high into the sky , my head above the clouds in the star lite night
ask my now and i'll tell you later
Track Name: Rincon
And i was rolling back down to rincon, Puerto Rico's the land where i have my fun
the bars down on the shoreline, ring a bell take a shot coconuts and rum
surfing all through the day, and we party into the night
and the best thing about this ragga town is the girls with the ass so tight
and i
I ain't coming home, kick back don't invade my style
turn up the reggatone and bone, till my prohecies reserect its one on one

Track Name: Drifting
Oh look at the baby come running to me
smiles like the sun and the open sea
but i'm tired and she wants to play

12 hours of work and my body hurts
wanna crack a beer and take off my shirt
but my baby she dont' think that way

when daytime turns to night
and i start feeling right
i kill the light i ain't that one to blame

where do we go now

smothered by the sun and its burning me,
its too damn hot about 103
wanna hit that sea and float away
with each born beat you better take a seat
no matter where you go the world will always know
the foundation is here to stay

when nightime turns to light
and i step up to this fight
the pressures tight, and i can't win this game

come on now, where do we go now

drifting all alone, in that open sea
drifting all alone, so my eyes can breath
drifting towards the sunset, like a lonely bee
waiting for the sunrise, come find me

days are getting long and too rough for me
get off in the morning but i start at 3
but the paychecks coming round my way
and whys that girl gotta mess with me
asking where's the seed to the money tree
i told that bitch to get a job today

but day 3 1 will come, and its time to have some fun
ya but the welfare check won't come another day

come on now, where do we go now

slap you in the back to get respect from your face
i meet you at the pub, with a can of mase
jam for the fans and the beat don't stop
and i don't slip girl and we still rock
i make a girl shout cry scream and pout
ya another six pack just to turn me down
and don't come stepping to the fame i got
stuggle with another till we both get caught
i'm living my life every hellish day
and i ride my camaro down the 5 freeway
all them ho's are gonna hop on me when they find out
that this is the b of the bfoundation

drifting all alone, in that open sea
drifting all alone, so my eyes can breath
drifting towards the sunset, like a lonely bee
waiting for the sunrise, come find me
Track Name: The Fast Lane
Never thought that living alone would be easy
fairytales and lies of life seem to seek me
living gone, is what i used to be
living gone, don't know where this could be

and i'm living in the fast lane
living because you think its sane
and heaven ain't that far away
when you're playing my game

the clock stikes midnight and i go home
and i don't even think you care
the fact that you should even be aware

of my.... habit life, i'm up at night, feeling high
i don't know why
i'm living in the fastlane
living because i think its sane
and heaven ain't that far away,
when you're playing my game

you call me at night, and i'm not home
you call my bluff, and i get stoned
but love takes time, gotta give it a chance
so take my hand and lets start this dance, ya

and i'm living in the fast lane
living because you think its sane
and heaven ain't that far away
when you're playing my game

Never thought that dying alone would be easy
fairytales and lies of life seem to seek me
living gone, is what i used to be
living gone, don't know where this could be

and i'm living in the fast lane
living because you think its sane
and heaven ain't that far away
when you're playing my game
