Track Name: 909
i see you out with your girl on the town
i see the trashy beats she’s layin’ down
dontcha know that it doesn’t fly   
when something good may pass you by
i’ve got something you should know
my programming steals the show
seems like she’s up to her same old tricks
but i’m gonna add something to your mix

set me on the 909 and i’ll
see you on the dance floor
we’ll keep it runnin’ all night long
and give you what you’re asking for

don’t know what you see in her
‘cause she has a cheap-ass sequencer
i’ve got the rhythm and the bass
she just mellows out the whole damn place
when you need a different scene
let me kick on my drum machine
turn the tempo to one-eighteen, baby
then you’ll know exactly what i mean

set me on the 909 and i’ll
see you on the dance floor
we’ll keep it runnin’ all night long
and give you what you’re asking for

drum machine
set me on the 909
drum machine
set me on the 909

set me on the 909 and i’ll
see you on the dance floor
we’ll keep it runnin’ all night long
and give you what you’re asking for
set me on the 909 and i’ll
see you on the dance floor
it’s just for the two of us
so push that girl right out the door
Track Name: Elevate
apart from the crowd
lost in a cloud
you never lose me
we sit for awhile
exchange a smile
let it all free
time and again
more than a friend
don't want this to end
where you should go
i don't really know
but I'd like to see you

you say sometimes
it just needs to be
I say think about
the possibility

take me high
across a midnight sky
fly so high
reach the moonlit sigh

across from the town
lost in the round
you could win me
we stand for awhile
away ten miles
can you hear me
not much to say
going my way
seems too easy
I finally know
where I should go
will you see me

you say sometimes
it just needs to be
I say think about
the possibility

take me high
across a midnight sky
fly so high
reach the moonlit sigh
let's go high
where the dreams never know
fly so high
don't ever let it go

you say sometimes
it just needs to be
I say think about
the possibility

take me high
across a midnight sky
fly so high
reach the moonlit sigh
let's go high
where the dreams never know
fly so high
don't ever let it go
Track Name: Pharmaceutical
crushing weight grips inside - i catch a breath & try to hide
what can get me
get me through the night?
back off, i can’t fight back - i’m having a panic attack
i can’t see you
see you in the light

you are my pharmaceutical - a drug that blocks all vertigo
can it be such a big unknown if i ever breathe again?

doctor says “take one a day - don’t mix it with a cabernet
and i’ll see you
see you out the door”
refills until 2025 - ready for the slow test drive
get me
get me off the floor

you are my pharmaceutical - a drug that blocks all vertigo
can it be such a big unknown if i ever breathe again?
not my style to be awfully cynical but the world is crashing all around me
my pharmaceutical
will i ever breathe again?

you are my pharmaceutical - a drug that blocks all vertigo

will i ever
will i ever
will i ever
breathe again?
Track Name: Love Me Alone
once you could make it go
i stood ready for the show
strike the first chord, and turn up
the lights, the lights

don’t know when the curtain closed
the unspoken question you proposed
loneliness began to grow
all night, all night

whoa oh oh oh
can’t i read your mind?
whoa oh oh oh
what would i find?
whoa oh

just the way you love me
those days have all gone by
a fabricated notion
if there is time enough to try

don’t want to write your biography
to hell with the technology
would you like to join
the fight, the fight

the tragic tale not ever shown
these bright birds have never flown
after all that is unsaid
you’re right, you’re right

whoa oh oh oh
can’t i read your mind?
whoa oh oh oh
what would i find?
whoa oh

just the way you love me
those days have all gone by
a fabricated notion
if there is time enough to try

can you say you love me?
those words don’t come out right
standing in the shadow
while we sleep in amber skies

oh
the way you love me
oh
the way you love me alone
Track Name: Va Va Voom
you’ll wannabe gettin’ in line
that’s where you’ll be spendin’ your time
as long as you stay in that groove
those gold chains and hair
it’s just makin’ us stare
hey boy, you have nothin’ to prove.
