  • [Janelle Monae]
    Girl, this is crazy... let me tell you

    I can't believe all of the things they say about me
    Walk in the room they throwing shade left to right
    They be like, "Ooh, she serving face"
    And I just tell 'em cut me up and get down
    They call us dirty cause we break all your rules down
    And we just came to act a fool, is that all right? (Girl, that's
    alright)
    They be like, "Ooh, let them eat cake."
    But we eat wings and throw them bones on the ground

    [Hook: Janelle Monae]
    Am I a freak for dancing around?
    Am I a freak for getting down?
    I'm cutting up, don't cut me down
    Yeah I wanna be, wanna be Queen

    [Janelle Monae]
    Is it peculiar that she twerk in the mirror?
    And am I weird to dance alone late at night?
    And is it true we're all insane?
    And I just tell 'em, "No we ain't" and get down
    I heard this life is just a play with no rehearsal
    I wonder will this be my final act tonight
    And tell me what's the price of fame?
    Am I a sinner with my skirt on the ground??

    [Hook]

    [Janelle Monae]
    Hey brother can you save my soul from the devil?
    Say is it weird to like the way she wear her tights?
    And is it rude to wear my shades?
    Am I a freak because I love watching Mary? (Maybe)
    Hey sister am I good enough for your heaven?
    Say will your God accept me in my black and white?
    Will he approve the way I'm made?
    Or should I reprogram, deprogram and get down?

    [Hook]

    [Janelle Monae]
    Even if it makes others uncomfortable
    I will love who I am
    Even if it makes others uncomfortable
    I will love who I am

    [Interlude: Erykah Badu]
    Ohh, shake 'til the break of dawn
    Don't mean to sing so tough, I can't take it no more
    Baby, me and tuxedo crew; pharaohs, it ain't my tomb
    Crazy in the black and white; we got the drums so tight
    Baby, here comes the freedom song, too strong we moving on
    Baby this melody will show you another way
    Been 'droids for far too long - come home and sing your song
    But you gotta testify because the booty don't lie
    No, no, the booty don't lie, oh no, the booty don't lie

    [Janelle Monae]
    Yeah.. yeah, let's flip it
    I don't think they understand what I'm trying to say
    Haha, yeah, uh, I asked a question like this

    "Are we a lost generation of our people?
    Add us to equations but they'll never make us equal
    She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel
    So why ain't the stealing of my rights made illegal?
    They keep us underground working hard for the greedy
    But when it's time pay they turn around and call us needy
    My crown too heavy like the Queen Nefertiti
    Gimme back my pyramid, I'm trying to free Kansas City
    Mixing masterminds like your name Bernie Grundman
    Well I'mma keep leading like a young Harriet Tubman
    You can take my wings but I'm still goin' fly
    And even when you edit me the booty don't lie
    Yeah keep singing, I'mma keep writing songs
    I'm tired of Marvin asking me +What's Going On?+
    March to the streets 'cuz I'm willing and I'm able
    Categorize me, I defy every label
    And while you're selling dope, we're gonna keep selling hope
    We rising up now, you gotta deal you gotta cope
    Will you be electric sheep? Electric ladies, will you sleep?
    Or will you preach?"

    [Verse 1]

    You're going crazy

    The hitmen always finds you

    Do that dance

    Smoking in the girls room

    Kiss in France

    It’s over like a comic book

    Exploding in a bathroom stall

    She's so freaked out worrying about the bomb but

    You bought a house but I'm allergic to the house pets

    Credit cards

    They bought a new wife for shiny little lonely men

    [Hook]
    But I really, really want to thank you

    For dancing `til the end

    You found a way to break out

    You're not afraid to break out

    But I need to know

    If the world says its time to go

    Tell me, will you freak out?

    Smash, smash, bang, bang

    Don't stop

    Chalangalangalang

    But I need to know

    If the world says its time to go

    Tell me, will you break out?

    Smash, smash, bang, bang

    Don't stop

    Chalangalangalang

    Smash, smash, bang, bang

    Don't stop

    Chalangalangalang

    [Verse 2]

    You got a life, but the zombie's in the front yard

    Take a bath, but nothing gets the funk off

    You're on TV, rocking and a rolling

    Cuz the dead just love to rock and roll

    Sick and tired of food tasting plastic

    You wanna cry

    But they grew up without a real kitchen'

    Asking why the pain is always equal

    But the joy just never spreads around

    [Hook]

    You're going crazy

    The hitmen always finds you

    Do that dance

    Smoking in the girls room

    Kissing friends

    Keep a rocking and a rolling

    Cuz the dead just love to rock and roll

    So freaked out, worried about the bomb

    Bought a house, but I’m allergic to the house pets

    Credit cards, working and a-bobbing

    Just to make enough to pay your rent

    [Hook]

    [Spoken]

    I've been

    Look at you

    You look just like a little old earthquake

    Break it, break it

    You got to break it

    Ain't no order in this courtroom

    Smash, smash, bang, bang

    (Y'all going to jail)

    Don't stop

    Chalangalangalang

    [Spoken: Android Voice]

    What's the matter?

    Your chicken tastes like pork?

    You have triplets instead of twins?

    Is your food taste plastic?

    Grandaddy, I think I wanna dance

    We've been like magnets in a play
    We smash in then pull away
    Every day

    You, you're a jet, a flying gun
    You kill me softly with your sun
    You melt my wings and call it fun
    I should run

    Faster and faster
    I should run
    Faster and faster
    From your arms

    I watch my powers die
    Falling out of starry skies
    You kryptonite my life
    Every night

    The ending of this road
    Dashing prince or horny toad?
    Who really ever knows?
    I should know

    Faster and faster
    I should run
    Faster and faster
    From your arms

    Mmm, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    I'm running
    shaking like a schizo
    'Lectric sheep are dancing in the window
    My heart beats
    It's kicking like a kick drum
    Am I a freak?
    Or just another weirdo
    Call me weak
    Or just call me your hero

    You can't zap down all my good times
    I know right from wrong
    Kissing loving's feeling good
    And not this feeling down
    You hide your chainsaw deep in kisses
    That don't make it quiet
    You got em running, muttering, screaming, each and every night

    Faster and faster
    I should run
    Faster and faster
    From your arms

  • I'm locked inside
    A land called foolish pride
    Where the man is always right
    He hates to talk but loves to fight
    Is that alright?

    On real cold days
    He loans us lots of hate
    But he says that we must pay
    To take it all away
    Is that ok?

    But I'm asking you will you stay with me
    In this land where we are free
    And I know it's rough
    And you've had enough
    But one day we'll be happy

    And when I look into the future I see danger in its eyes
    Hearts of hatred rule the land while love is left aside
    Killing plagues the citizens while music slowly dies
    I get frightened, I
    See, I get frightened, I...

    Oh how, oh how I need you baby
    To keep me from going crazy
    I really need you baby
    Need you to stay

    Oh how, oh how I love you baby
    These people are so crazy
    I really need you baby
    Need you to stay

    She's quick to fight
    For her man but not her rights
    Even though it's 3005
    When will we end this genocide?
    And that's not right
    Her children cry
    No food to eat and afraid as flies
    The color black means it's time to die
    And nobody questions why
    Cause they're too scared to stop the man

    But I'm asking you will you stay with me
    In this land where we are free
    And I know it's rough
    And you've had enough
    But one day we'll be happy

    When I look into the future
    I see danger in its eyes
    Babies die before they're born
    And no one ever smiles
    The writers and the artists, all are paid to tell us lies
    To keep us locked inside, they keep us locked inside

    Oh how, oh how I need you baby
    To keep me from going crazy
    I really need you baby
    Need you to stay

    Oh how, oh how I love you baby
    These people are so crazy
    I really need you baby
    Need you to stay

    I can make a change
    I can start a fire
    Lord, make me love again
    Fill me with desire

    I can make a change
    I can start a fire
    Make me love again
    Lord, thank You for desire

    And when I look into your pretty eyes I almost want to cry
    I think about my life and I don't want to live a lie
    How I need you baby, I need you right by my side
    I need you tonight, I need you tonight

    Yeah! How I need you baby
    See I can't let you go, I need you
    On the other side
    On the other side

    I love you so and I'll never let you go
    On the other side!

    Yeah, what’s high?

    Who?
    What’s happening?
    Yeah
    It’s B.O…

    Hey yeah…

    Well if you’re looking for me I’m probably in metropolis
    I do this for the love so this is non-profit shit
    I’m board walking so you call this monopoly
    Obviously, my approach to music ain’t moderate
    As my macoma spits I am the anomaly
    I love all the haters coz the haters is what got me here
    Strangers ‘hey B.O.B’-y me
    Groupies try to buddy me
    But I’m a different planet so excuse my astrology
    But there are no apologies for dropping all these prophecies
    Breaking over barriers, your juggernauts ain’t stopping me
    Balance ain’t symmetrical, I guess I’m just geometry
    Guess I’m just atomically built the way they I, B.O.B, wanna be
    B.O.B wanna be, you stride on a beat, we slide on our feet
    We tightrope
    I don’t need no optometry
    I’ll do this in a blindfold
    Honestly we live the type of life people would die for
    So we keep on tipping every second that we tightrope

    [Janelle Monae]
    Baby baby
    Whether you high or low
    Baby whether you high or low
    You gotta tip on the tightrope
    Now let me see you do the tightrope
    And I’m still tippin’ on it

    [Lupe Fiasco]
    Greetings
    Welcome to the meeting of the minds
    That be thinkin’ all the time ‘bout defeating all the blind
    Following, swallowing, drinking of
    the time honoured traditions of keeping in a line
    I prefer to figure eight, and then I’ll pop,
    Rock all night
    ‘Til the candles on my mantle stop
    And it’s getting programming on every single channel
    Watched televised revolutionaries on the chapel top
    Shouting
    Down in Babylon when they’re accounting
    Medieval mathematics keep us average in amounting
    But I surpass that
    I dropped out of they math class
    I am, coz I thought,
    now my tightrope is a sidewalk

    [Janelle Monae]
    Baby baby
    Whether you high or low
    Baby whether you high or low
    You got to tip on the tightrope
    Now let me so you do the tightrope

    Now, now, na, na na na na…

    I can grind with the fellas
    And rock a stage acapella
    Never
    Can you hear me?
    I am unpredictable like the weather
    Ta-ta-talking about me
    I stay floating like a feather
    Jump on the elevator
    Baby we on the next level
    Album just dropped and I been on a couple covers
    Black and white tux, ain’t no need for no other colours
    Ta-ta-talking about ‘wa-wa-why don’t she change her clothes?’
    Well they ain’t seem to mind the last three times I posed in Vogue
    Some people get high and then some people get low
    Well I’m gonna keep it in the middle so my people can know
    Underdogs stand up tall coz I’m talking to ya’ll
    I can pose, I balance all
    Like I’m Dominique Dawes
    Then I’m gone!

    High or low
    Baby whether you high or low
    You gotta tip on the tightrope
    Now let me see you do the tightrope

    (woah, you keep on running around on it)

    Baby baby whether you high or low
    Baby whether you high or low
    You gotta tip on the tightrope
    Now let me see ya’ do the tightrope
    And I’m still tippin’ on it…

    Keep keep keep my balance
    I gotta, gotta keep my balance

    High or low
    Whether you’re high or low
    You gotta tip on the tightrope
    Let me see you on it…

    TIGHTROPE (WONDAMIX) FT. B.O.B & LUPE FIASCO
  • The way you are now
    You're never gonna make the bus
    Even though
    Everybody's so impressed
    You've got "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" under your pillow
    Oh!

    I saw you spit on London just like you were Peter Pan

    The way you are now
    You're never gonna make it in my kitchen
    Still, everybody's so excited!
    Last I was here I was convinced I was your favorite warrior

    I've got a terrible fixation
    Can't get it off my mind
    Don't want to really get to know it better
    Want to keep it in the realm of fantasy

    You wanted me just for a holiday
    Or was it to pad your resume?
    What do you give me but unwanted breakthroughs
    Strange how certain details subvert everything

    I've got a terrible fixation
    Can't get it off my mind
    Don't really want to know it better
    Want to keep it in the realm of fantasy

    OMG! WTT!
    Aww girl we been through hell about it!
    Then I see our friends and'€¦
    Everybody's so excited!
    I'm standing over you eating juicy fruits till it gets in your eye!

    I've got a terrible fixation
    Can't get it off my mind
    Don't want to really get to know it better
    Want to keep it in the realm of fantasy

  • Tommy thinks the crazies are back in my mind
    Tommy says the children are clouding my head
    When everything is wrong I dance inside my mind

    That's when I come alive like a schizo running wild
    That's when I come alive now let's go wild

    We're kicking at your window and keeping you up
    And if you come to find me I'll color you red
    We dancing in the dungeon every Monday night

    That's when I come alive like a schizo running wild
    That's when I come alive now let's go wild

    You want to see me crazy taking my meds
    And wipe away my noises you think I'm a mess
    Take me six feet under while your roses died I came alive

    You better leave the town I'm coming for you
    Call the Tommy up and tell him come help you out
    I'm getting wild on you you better go and call the law

    Tommy thinks the crazies are back in my mind
    Tommy says the children are clouding my head
    When everything is wrong I dance inside your mind
    You come alive

  • So you think I'm alone?
    But being alone's the only way to be
    When you step outside
    You spend life fighting for your sanity

    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?

    If you wanna be free?
    Below the ground's the only place to be
    Cause in this life
    You spend time running from depravity

    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?
    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?

    Bring wings to the weak and bring grace to the strong
    May all evil stumble as it flies in the world
    All the tribes comes and the mighty will crumble
    We must brave this night and have faith in love

    I'm trying to find my peace
    I was made to believe there's something wrong with me
    And it hurts my heart
    Lord have mercy, ain't it plain to see?

    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?

    KELLINDOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Do you know it's a cold, cold war?
    Do you, do you do you?

    Bye, bye, bye, bye
    Don't you cry when I say goodbye

  • I'm locked inside
    A land called foolish pride
    Where the man is always right
    He hates to talk but loves to fight
    Is that all right?

    On real cold days
    He loans us lots of hate
    But he says that we must pay
    To take it all away
    Is that ok?

    Bridge:
    But I'm asking you will you stay with me
    In this land where we are free
    And I know it's rough and you've had enough
    But one day we'll be happy

    When I look into the future
    I see danger in it's eyes
    Hearts of hatred rule the land
    While others left outside
    Killing, Bleeding Citizen
    While music slowly dies
    And I get frightened I, see I get frightened

    Chorus:
    Oh how, oh how I need you baby
    You keep me from going crazy
    I really need you baby, need you to stay
    Oh how, oh how I love you baby
    These people are so crazy
    I really need you baby, need you to stay

    Verse 2:
    She always fights, for her man but not her rights
    Even though it's 3005
    When will we end this genocide?
    And that'€™s not right

    Her children cry
    No food to eat and afraid as flies
    The color black means it's time to die
    And nobody questions why
    Cause they'€™re too scared to stop them now

    Bridge

    When I look into the future
    I see danger in it's eyes
    Babies die before they'€™re born
    And no one ever smiles
    The writers and the artists, all are paid to tell us lies
    To keep us locked inside, they keep us locked inside

    Chorus

    I can make a change
    I can start a fire
    Lord, make me love again
    Father, fill me with desire

    Some will pull the gun because they want to be stars
    Snatching up your life into the blink of an eye
    And if you see your cloning on a street walking by
    Keep a running for your life cause only one will survive
    War is in the street and it's an eye for an eye
    Run on for your life or you can dance you can die
    She's praying in the sand like she's the last samurai
    It's a stick up stick up and a pick up pick up
    Telling lies and telling lies will put your face on fire
    Run and tell your friends to never dream, never win
    Ghettos keep a crying out to streets full of zombies
    Kids are killing kids and then the kids join the army
    Rising and a waking, yes sir here comes the sun
    March into the war and with the kick of the drum
    The wiser simians have got the bombs and the guns
    So you might as well keep dancing if you're not gonna run

    A long long way to find the one
    We'll keep on dancing till she comes
    These dreams are forever
    Oh these dreams are forever
    And if you wanna wake the sun
    Just keep on marching to the drums
    These dreams are forever
    Oh these dreams are forever

    Now I'm not saying it's better to bailar (Spanish for dance)
    You can pull the trigger or you can build you an ark
    My words are rather kind you keep them held in contempt
    Looking for a nine and then a droid you can tempt
    Zombie, zombie, zombie, where do dreams come from?
    A little bird is chirping and she's singing a song
    She's shaking em and waking em and giving em mas
    As the clock tick tocks and the bodies drop
    I'm gonna lay myself so far way down right in your chops
    Modern day example of the wolf vs flock
    Freedom necessary and it's by any means
    Frozen they were stolen all the kings and queens
    Sudanese and Congolese who put the roll in the rock
    From here to Sudan, Metropolis to Iraw
    It's a minute to the dawn and yet the sun ain't back
    It's still a war in all the stress and yes freaks will dance or die

    A long long way to find the one
    We'll keep on dancing till she comes
    These dreams are forever
    Oh these dreams are forever
    And if you wanna wake the sun
    Just keep on marching to the drums
    These dreams are forever
    Oh these dreams are forever

    Angel, blossom, gunshot, dodging, dream, bright, beat, light, breathe, live, help, give, focus, trance, wake up, dance!

    I'm praying for the man sitting without much time
    May he understand the clock will never rewind
    Wisen him and sharpen him and give him a motto
    Hate no more, said he must hate no more
    You see the daylight comes into the kingdom
    But the kingdom's full of ignorant men
    Just keep rebelling away, you gotta dream it away
    Because the weatherman on TV ain't creating the weather
    This man wants to see another jubilation
    And that man wants us in emancipation
    And then there is the man who wants a stronger nation
    You see we really got to and I think that we ought to
    Protect the mind from degradation
    Sow in the seeds of education
    They run from us, are we that dangerous?
    There's a war in all the streets and yes the freaks must dance or die!

  • Love is such a novelty
    A rarely painted masterpiece
    A place few people go or ever know
    An underwater rocket love
    Exactly what I'm searching for
    You're brave enough to go
    Tell me so...

    Say you'll go to nirvana
    Will you leave Samsara?
    In the words of Dhammapada
    Who will lead? Who will follow?

    Our love will sail in this ark
    The world could end outside our window
    Let's find forever
    And write our name in fire on each other's hearts

    Love is not a fantasy
    A haiku written in Japanese
    A word too often used but not believed
    Witness the interaction of
    The flood, the sea, the sky, the dove
    Time erodes the shore but not our love

    Say you'll go to nirvana
    Will you leave Samsara?
    In the words of Dhammapada
    Who will lead? Who will follow?

    Our love will sail in this ark
    The world could end outside our window
    Let's find forever
    And write our name in fire on each other's hearts

    Do, do, do, do

    Our love will sail in this ark
    The world could end outside our window
    Let's find forever
    And write our name in fire on each other's hearts

  • Early late at night
    I wander off into a land
    You can go, but you mustn't tell a soul
    There's a world inside
    Where dreamers meet each other
    Once you go it's hard to come back
    Let me paint your canvas as you dance

    Dance in the trees
    Paint mysteries
    The magnificent droid plays there
    Your magic mind
    Makes love to mine
    I think I'm in love, angel

    Take me back to Wondaland
    I gotta get back to Wondaland
    Take me back to Wondaland
    I think me left me underpants

    The grass grows inside
    The music floats you gently on your toes
    Touch the nose, he'll change your clothes to tuxedos
    Don't freak and hide
    I'll be your secret santa, do you mind?
    Don't resist
    The fairygods will have a fit
    We should dance

    Dance in the trees
    Paint mysteries
    The magnificent droid plays there
    Your magic mind
    Makes love to mine
    I think I'm in love, angel

    Take me back to Wondaland
    I gotta get back to Wondaland
    Take me back to Wondaland
    I think me left me underpants

    This is your land
    This is my land
    We belong here
    Stay the night
    I am so inspired
    You touched my wires
    My supernova shining bright

    Take me back to Wondaland
    I gotta get back to Wondaland
    Take me back to Wondaland
    I think me left me underpants

  • May this song reach your heart
    May your ears love the sweet melody
    Every note, every chord
    I've arranged them for you and for me

    May the sound of my voice be your guide
    Bring you closer to me
    Let us bathe in the noise
    Let the love in your heart speak to me

    For now, I'll pretend
    I'm holding your hand

    May this song reach your heart
    May this song reach your heart
    May this song reach your heart
    May this song journey on to you

    We met alone forbidden in the city
    Running fast through time like Tubman and John Henry
    But the time was wrong
    Illegal aliens moaned
    It's such a pity that the city's just a danger zone
    Atomic blues bombing hearts like Iraqis in Babylon
    The droid control will take your soul and rate it
    Berate, slay it
    You hate it and debate it but you don't get caught
    And outlaw outrunning the law, ha

    May the strings make you smile
    May they always remind you of me
    For now let's pretend
    I'm holding your hand

    May this song reach your heart
    May this song reach your heart
    May this song reach your heart
    May this song journey on for you

  • Mushrooms and roses is the place to be
    (Smells like love to me)
    Where all the lonely droids and lovers have their wildest dreams
    (It's the sound of the)
    The golden door of our emotions opens here
    We're all virgins to the joys of loving without fear

    Come sweet love
    Take my hand
    Follow me
    Just let me be
    Come sweet love
    Just take my hand
    Follow me
    Let us be
    Yeah

    I remember one of the regulars
    Her long, grey hair
    Beautiful smile and rosy cheeks
    Her name slips my mind
    Ahhh, her name was

    Blueberry Mary, and she's crazy about me
    (She's so crazy about me)
    She's wild man, she's wild!
    She gives the boys all of her kisses and electricity
    (Til I come, til I come in her dreams)
    The golden door of their emotions opens wide
    Here they fall into her love and never have to hide

    Come sweet love
    Take my hand
    Follow me
    Just let us be
    Come sweet love
    Just take my hand
    Follow me
    Let us be
    Yeah

  • I hear the drizzle of the rain
    It's falling from my window
    And in the corners of my mind
    I hope that I'll get to see you again
    La da die da die da die da die my friend

    I hear the colors in the flowers
    Just like the candle snugged at dawn
    You're here, you're near, you're there and then you're gone
    La da die da die da die da die

    Suffering in sinking sand
    All the hurt
    See I'm really lost baby
    We suffered a rare, rare blue
    So much hurt
    On this earth
    But you loved me
    And I really dared to love you too
    Perhaps what I mean to say is
    Is that it's amazing that your love was mine

    Oh, Maker tell me did you know
    This love would burn so yellow
    Becoming orange and in it's time
    Explode from grey to black then bloody wine
    La da die da die da die da die

    Oh, Maker have you ever loved?
    Or known just what it was?
    I can't imagine the bitter end
    Of all the beauty that we're living in?

    Suffering in sinking sand
    All the hurt
    See I'm really lost baby
    We suffered a rare, rare blue
    So much hurt
    On this earth
    But you loved me
    And I really dared to love you too
    Perhaps what I mean to say is
    Is that it's amazing that your love was mine

    Yeah they talkin' bout it
    Cause they can't dip on the scene

    You dance up on them haters
    Keep getting funky on the scene
    While they jumpin' round ya
    They trying to take all of your dreams
    But you can't allow it

    Cause baby whether you're high or low
    Whether you're high or low
    You gotta tip on the tightrope
    (Tip, tip on it)
    T-t-t-tip on the tightrope
    (Tip, tip on it)

    Baby, baby, baby

    Whether you're high or low
    (High or low)
    Baby whether you're high or low
    (High or low)
    You got to tip on the tightrope
    (Tip, tip on it)
    Now let me see you do the tightrope
    (Tip, tip on it)
    And I'm still tippin' on it

    See I'm not walkin' on it
    Or tryin' to run around it
    This ain't no acrobatics
    You either follow or you lead, yeah
    I'm talkin' bout you,
    I'll keep on blaming the machine, yeah
    I'm talkin' bout it,
    T-t-t-talkin' bout it
    I can't complain about it
    I gotta keep my balance
    And just keep dancin on it
    We gettin funky on the scene

    Big Boi
    You gotta keep your balance
    Or you fall into the gap
    It's a challenge but I manage
    Cause I'm cautious with the strap
    Doing damage to your canvas that a doctor cannot patch
    See why you don't want no friction
    Like the back of a matchbook
    That I pass as I will forward you
    And your MacBook
    Clothes shows will shut you down
    Before we go-go backwards
    Act up, and whether we high or low
    We gonna get back up
    Like the Dow Jones and NASDAQ
    Sorta like a thong in a ass crack,
    Come on

    I tip on alligators and little rattle snakers
    But I'm another flavor
    Something like a terminator
    Ain't no equivocating
    I fight for what I believe
    Why you talkin' bout it
    S-s-she's talkin' bout it
    Some callin' me a sinner
    Some callin' me a winner
    I'm callin' you to dinner
    And you know exactly what I mean,
    Yeah I'm talkin' bout you
    You can rock or you can leave
    Watch me tip without you

    N-N-Now whether I'm high or low
    (High or low)
    Whether I'm high or low
    (High or low)
    I'm gonna tip on the tightrope

    MMMMMM

    Baby, baby
    Whether I'm high or low
    (High or low)
    High or low
    (High or low)
    I got to tip on the tightrope
    (Tip, tip on it)
    Now baby tip on the tightrope

    You can't get too high
    (We can't get too high)
    I said you can't get too low
    (We can't get too low)
    Cause you get too high
    (You can't get too high)
    No you'll surely be low
    (No, you'll surely be low)
    1, 2, 3, Ho!

    Yeah, yeah
    Now shut up, yeah
    Yeah, now put some voodoo on it
    Ladies and gentlemen the funkiest horn section in Metropolis
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh
    We call that Classy Brass!

    Ohhhhhhh

  • Sir Greendown
    Come wake me in the night
    The dragon wants a bite
    Of our love

    The flower and the golden hand
    Wooden wings and clouds of sand

    Sir Greendown
    Let's leave in an hour
    Meet me at the tower
    Ride your horse

    Here the dolphins walk like men
    Here the cyborgs have a plan
    Sir Greendown
    I need your shining light

    Let's leave in an hour
    Meet me at the tower
    I'm in love.

  • Verse 1:

    You...
    Since that magic day...
    We've been like magnets in a play...
    We smash in then pull away... Every day... (Every day)
    You... You... You're a jet, a flying gun...
    You kill me softly with your sun...
    You melt my wings then call it fun...
    I should run...

    Chorus:

    Faster and faster I should run...
    Faster and faster from your arms...
    Faster and faster I should run...
    Faster and faster from your arms...

    Verse 2:

    I...
    Watch my power die...
    Falling out of starry skies...
    You kryptonite my life...
    Every night... (faster, faster)
    Oh, the...
    Ending of the road...
    Dashing prince or horny toad...
    Who really ever knows?
    I should know...

    'Lectric sheep... ('lectric sheep... All over my feet)
    Dancin' in the window... (They're dancin', dancin', dancin' in the window)
    My heart beats... (My heart beats. It beats for you and only you)
    Kickin' like a kick drum... (And it's kickin' like a kick, kick drum)
    Am I a freak? (Am I a freak? Ah, am I a freak?)

  • The only love my heart approaches
    Your tender eyes fill mind with roses
    I drink your wine
    And never will my heart dry inside
    Or be denied

    Walking like a lonely fool in Prague
    Singing a love song and the words I wrote
    I wrote for two

    Gentle as a lullaby at night
    I hear you humming private melodies
    You're near

    BaBopByeYa.
    Where are you my darling?
    BaBopByeYa.
    Can you hear me calling?

    Rewind the clock, our time's approaching
    Give us the eyes to guide us most when
    We have no light to see throughout all our darkest days
    And troubled ways

    [2nd movement:]

    Ojos miran hacia la luna
    Evitan un mundo tan triste
    Dominado bajo el odio
    Donde el amor no existe
    Dame en su reino refugio
    De la oscuridad peligrosa
    Espero en la esquina, Querida
    Busco la llamanda amorosa

    Eyes look to the moon
    Avoid a world so sad
    Ruled under the hate
    Where there is love
    Give me refuge in his kingdom
    In the dark dangerous
    I hope in the corner, Dear
    Seeking the love Call us

    Like a lonely matador at night
    Fighting in the darkness for the light
    I won't stop until I hear the call of love...

    And when I'm alone, you are near to me
    You have made a home in my memory
    There you will abide for forever
    And I will keep you warm in the night

    [3rd movement:]

    In the face of an awful danger
    He risks his life to save her
    Lowly manger
    Arms of strangers
    To me
    Allude me
    Pursue me
    Truly

    I heed echos of your laughter in the corners of my mind
    While I memorise each detail of your intricate design
    In your hair there is a symphony
    Your lips, a string quartet
    They tell stories of a Neon Valley Street
    Where we first met
    Now somewhere time pursues us
    As we love in Technicolor
    But I dwell in silence on your words
    Which move me like none other
    This time I shall be unafraid
    And violence will not move me
    This time we will relax
    This time we will stay in our movie
    I see beyond tomorrow
    This life of strife and sorrow
    My freedom calls and I must go

  • Early each morning he searched for her
    Til his feet become bloody and tired
    Her hologram photo stayed near to him
    Buried deep in the pits of his heart
    The lock of grey hair that she gave to him
    Stayed clutched in his fist through the night
    Dead or alive, she still yearned for him
    Cause even in darkness there's light, oh and

    One by one
    It's your time
    Lead them both back to one
    The sun has come
    May your light lead them both back to one
    Indivisible sum
    Here's the book now the saga's begun
    He wonders if she is the one
    (You're the one)
    You're the one.

    Cold in the cell lost and shivering
    Gunshots in hallways unknown
    On the fifth floor, past the blue door
    Sat a chained 57821
    Sir Greendown told his dear Cindi
    Fight like Achilles in Troy
    "I will show you the ways that I love you
    I saved you so you'd save the world
    Cause you're the only one"

    One by one
    It's your time
    Lead us all back to one
    The sun has come
    May your light lead us all back to one
    Indivisible sum
    Here's the book now the saga's begun
    I wonder if I'm
    (You're the one)
    Am I the one?

    Anthony Greendown your Cindi Mayweather will always be waiting for you
    Just as sure as the sunlight keeps beaming on your eyes she'll always be waiting for you

  • Sorry I ran away.
    Me lost too.
    Sorry I'm in a maze,
    No words due...
    Soar in my dreams,
    In my dreams.
    This stormy sunrise,
    It will die.

    And I'll be with you, my love...
    My love...

  • We're dancing free but we're stuck here underground
    And everybody trying to figure they way out
    Hey Hey Hey, all we ever wanted to say
    Was chased erased and then thrown away
    And day to day we live in a daze

    We march all around til' the sun goes down night children
    Broken dreams, no sunshine, endless crimes, we long for freedom (for freedom)
    You're free but in your mind, your freedom's in a bind

    Oh make it rain, ain't a thang and the sky to fall
    (The silver bullet's in your hand and the war's heating up)
    And when the truth goes BANG the shouts splatter out
    (Revolutionize your lives and find a way out)
    And when you're growing down instead of growing up
    (You gotta ooo ah ah like a panther)
    Tell me are you bold enough to reach for love?
    (Na na na...)

    So strong for so long
    All I wanna do is sing my simple song
    Square or round, rich or poor
    At the end of day and night all we want is more
    I keep my feet on solid ground and use my wings when storms come around
    I keep my feet on solid ground for freedom
    You're free but in your mind, your freedom's in a bind

    Smile, though your heart is aching, smile,
    Even though it’s breaking
    Then there are clouds, in the sky you’ll get by
    If you smile, through all fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You’ll find the sun come shining through for you

    Light up your face with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness

    Although a tear may be ever so near
    Cause that’s the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what’s the use of crying
    You’ll find that life is still worth while
    If you, you just smile

    Although a tear may be ever so near
    Cause that’s the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what’s the use of crying

  • Left the city, my momma she said don't come back home
    These kids round' killin each other, they lost they minds, they gone
    They quittin' school, making babies and can barely read
    Some gone off to their fall, lord have mercy on them
    One, two, three, four, your cousins is round' here sellin' dope
    While they're daddies, your uncle is walking round' strung out
    Babies with babies, and their tears keep burning, while their dreams go down the drain now

    Are we really living or just walking dead now?
    Or dreaming of a hope riding the wings of angels
    The way we live
    The way we die
    What a tragedy, I'm so terrified
    Day dreamers please wake up, we can't sleep no more

    Love don't make no sense, ask your neighbor
    The winds have changed; it seems they have abandoned us
    The truth hurts, and so does yesterday
    What good is love if it burns bright, and explodes in flames
    (I thought every little thing had love but uhh)

    Are we really living or just walking dead now?
    Or dreaming of a hope riding the wings of angels
    The way we live
    The way we die
    What a tragedy, I'm so terrified
    Day dreamers please wake up, we can't sleep no more

    I've seen them shootin' up funerals in they Sunday clothes
    Spending money on spinners but won't pay college loans
    And all you gangers and bangers rollin' dice and taking lives, in a smokey dark
    Lord have mercy on you
    Teacher, teacher please reach those girls in them videos
    The little girls just broken Queen, confusing bling for soul
    Danger, there's danger when you take off your clothes, all your dreams go down the drain girl

    Are we really living or just walking dead now?
    Or dreaming of a hope riding the wings of angels
    The way we live
    The way we die
    What a tragedy, I'm so terrified
    Day dreamers please wake up, we can't sleep no more

    We live and then we die, and we never know the right
    So now, now were gone now, on your mark
    We live and then we die, and we never touch the sky
    So now, now were gone now, on your mark

    You've been gone long enough
    You must come, you must go

    I am happy to announce we have a star-crossed winner in today’s heartbreak sweepstakes.
    Android Number 57821, otherwise known as Cindy Mayweather,
    Has fallen desperately in love with a human named Anthony Greendow.
    And you know the rules!

    Bounty hunters, you can find her in the Neon Valley Street District on the 4th floor

    This song is for you.

    Hey Mr. President,
    Tomorrow I’m paying my rent
    My Fuel is runnin’ low
    And I’ve got places to go
    Quit slowin’ me down

    Can we talk about the education of our children?
    A book is worth more than a bomb any day
    And remember a mirror to Africa
    Who will bring the cure before it’s too late.

    Don’t you see the hurt in their eyes?
    So much disappointment in many faces
    Use your heart and not your pride
    We can’t go on and keep pretending

    Please Mr. President
    Where’s all the money you spent,
    Food is fallin low
    And they have nowhere to go,
    Quit slowin me down.

    I ask you to have mercy on us father,
    You think we know the rules by now,
    We can’t go starting wars with hearts of hatred
    Out nations greed won’t make it better
    Or quiet the fears in our hearts

    Don’t you see the hurt in their eyes?
    So much Disappointment in all of their faces
    Use your heart and not your pride
    We can’t go on and keep pretending

    O please Mr. President

    Dear Mr. President
    I hope you got the letter I sent
    A Dollar only goes so far
    And we need help here, no matter who we are

    See we come from different worlds and different places
    Until there’s one great land, one nation under god,
    Times are getting harder and we need you to be like Moses
    And lead your people through
    Please be careful, Be Careful,
    of what you do, what you do

  • Woahhhh
    Another day
    I take your pain away

    Some people talk about ya
    Like they know all about ya
    When you get down they doubt ya
    And when you dip it on the scene
    Yeah they talkin’ bout it
    Cause they can’t dip on the scene
    Whatcha talk about it
    t-t-t-talkin’ bout it
    When you get elevated,
    They love it or they hate it
    You dance up on them haters
    Keep getting funky on the scene
    Why they jumpin’ round ya
    They trying to take all your dreams
    But you can’t allow it

    Cause baby whether you’re high or low
    Whether you’re high or low
    You gotta tip on the tightrope
    (tip, tip on it)
    t-t-t-tip on the tightrope
    (tip, tip on it)

    Baby, baby, baby

    Whether you’re high or low

    Now let me see you do the tightrope
    (tip, tip on it)
    And I’m still tippin’ on it

    See I’m not walkin’ on it
    Or tryin to run around it
    This ain’t no acrobatics
    You either follow or you lead, yeah

    I’m talkin’ bout you,
    I’ll keep on blaming the machine, yeah
    I’m talkin’ bout it,
    t-t-t-talkin’ bout it
    I can’t complain about it
    I gotta keep my balance
    And just keep dancin on it
    We gettin funky on the scene

    Like a star on the screen
    Watch me tip all on it

    Then baby whether I’m high or low

    And I’m still tippin’ on it

    Big Boi
    You gotta keep your balance
    Or you fall into the gap
    It’s a challenge but I manage
    Cause I’m cautious with the strap
    No damage to your cameras damn I thought that
    Can I passy (???)
    Why you don’t want no friction
    like the back of a matchbook
    That I pass as I will forward you (??)
    And your MacBook
    Clothes shows will shut you down (??)
    before we go-go backwards
    Act up, and whether we high or low
    We gonna get back-up
    Like the dow jones and nasdaq
    Sorta like a thong in an ass crack,
    Come on

    I tip on alligators and little rattle snakers
    But I’m another flavor
    Something like a terminator
    Ain’t no equivocating
    I fight for what I believe
    Why you talkin’ bout it
    s-s-she’s talkin’ bout it
    Some callin me a sinner
    Some callin me a winner
    I’m callin you to dinner
    And you know exactly what I mean,

    Yeah I’m talkin bout you
    You can rock or you can leave
    Watch me tip without you

    N-N-Now whether I’m high or low
    (high or low)
    Whether I’m high or low
    (high or low)
    I’m gonna tip on the tightrope
    (tip, tip on it)
    MMMMMM
    (tip, tip on it)

    Baby, baby, baby
    Whether I’m high or low
    (high or low)
    High or low
    (high or low)
    I got to tip on the tightrope
    (tip, tip on it)
    Now baby tip on the tightrope

    You can’t get too high
    (you can’t get too high)
    I said you can’t get too low
    (we can’t get too low)
    Cause you get too high
    (you can’t get too high)
    No you’ll surely be low
    (no, you’ll surely be low)
    1, 2, 3, Ho!
