I'm A Planet 03:28
I’M A PLANET I’m a planet and you’re my moon Spinning round, scoping the room So confess, be bodyless This gravity you can’t resist More than just a dance Join me in my arrogance Us two will get there soon Cuz I’m a planet and you’re a moon Spin Shake Blast off Rotate If life is so great Why’s it so great to escape? Always looking for a time machine When all I need’s in front of me Immortality Ain’t what she used to be Get ready for the big boom Cuz you’re a planet and I’m your moon Spin Shake Blast off Rotate Get ready for the big boom

Hands Dirty 03:29
HANDS DIRTY I won’t wait for all your stars to align So much body language but still can’t read your sign All this hocus pocus and no focus Texting got nothing on us We’re having trouble loading more guys So get your hands dirty Get on the real It’s so nervy to do what you feel We’re past flirty It’s time for a deal So get your hands dirty And get back on the real I don’t need you to tell me what’s what When I get to 1000 then we can talk about slut Spare me all the drama This ain’t no fate or karma Gossip ain’t that juicy The singer gets the pussy The singer gets the pussy So get your hands dirty Get on the real It’s so nervy to do what you feel We’re past flirty It’s time for a deal So get your hands dirty And get back on the real

No Fakin' 03:16
No Fakin' (text by Mavin and Snax) I'd like to take you on a trip inside To let you see what I have on my mind then maybe, baby you can visualize and hopefully you also sympathize Some things are circulating in my head I cannot put in words, don't be misled and other things you always trivialize The time is right to finally emphasize I'd like to see you tryin' to understand I am the one, on me you can depend Why do we have to overanalyze the status of our love, let's legalize Legalize Toss and turn Insomnia And rub my eyes Gettin’ caught up in fantasize I’m just trying to seal the deal and supersize Supersize SUPERSIZE Sing Really ain't no fakin' I’m so goddamn into you Really ain't no fakin' I’m so goddamn into you Oo, oo, I I wanna give it to you I Sometimes when I am tossing in my bed Insomnia takes your place instead I think of us and then I fantasize Let's finally seal the deal and supersize Some things are circulating in my head I cannot put in words, don't be misled and other things you always trivialize The time is right to finally emphasize Emphasize I’m done with the disguise Cuz us two will rise Look I’m just sayin’ Finally after all the heartbreakin’ This right here Really ain’t no fakin’ Really ain't no fakin' I’m so goddamn into you Really ain't no fakin' I’m so goddamn into you

TURN IT (text: Mavin) I’m a sucker Magassouba I’m a sucker Just do it Say say something baby Something that you know I like Try and impress me baby Someone no one else has tried I’m a sucker for a beat Fine white sugar, oh so sweet Would you like to rock the boat Give me body, make me float Turn it into something special Turn it into something good Grind up on me for good measure Come on get into the groove Play play something baby Spin those records that I like Turn turn turn the fader Bring it home back to life Pucker up for a kiss This white sugar you can’t miss, no Play the scale note by note Let me be your antidote Turn it into something special Turn it into something good Grind up on me for good measure Come on get into the groove I’m a sucker Just do it I want you bad and I want you now Baby giggyup, giddyup Turn me out I want you bad and I want you now Baby giggyup, giddyup Turn me out Tell me Do you want me to Do you on the dance floor like the nasties do Just tell me Do you want me to Do you on the dance floor like the nasties do it

FIERCE IMPERATIVE We may be stardust But times are tough Got no room if you can’t take some playing rough Inaccessible? Not a bit A remarkable woman who won’t take any shit One thing’s for certain I ain’t gonna be the one hurting I’m not gonna get hurt I’m not gonna get hurt Take this fierce imperative And show me what you got to give Take this fierce imperative And show me what you got Now what was that I heard you say? This can only make us stronger day by day Play my hand Lay it on the line Ain’t no thing been in this game a long time One thing’s for certain I ain’t gonna be the one hurting I’m not gonna get hurt I’m not gonna get hurt Take this fierce imperative And show me what you got to give Take this fierce imperative And show me what you got

Loose Beat 03:31
LOOSE BEAT What to do, what to do It's nothing if I can't share it with you On my own, can't go home We're hanging up at a quarter to two Don't wanna play mix and mingle Don't wanna play let's pretend we're single Now who's to say Not supposed to happen today My loose beat is incomplete No freak flag waving I just lost a little feeling Someone lied, someone died I wanna be a human being Go away Don't matter where Go away Stomp our feet and scream it's not fair Now who's to say Not supposed to happen today My loose beat is incomplete

Final Hour 03:26
Final Hour Hey sweets You can do it Movie extra Market teller Plaza tender House cleaner End up toilet Nursing home coat check Cater the dance floor Backstage tour Final hour Final hour And quittin’ time Hey sweets You can do it Commercial server Mixer performer All night Shady lights Part time whore On the ward At the bar Superstar Final hour Final hour And quittin’ time

ARE YOU WITH ME? Why fight it? These are my people I made it And so much more possible Are you with me? Sometimes I I only function And that’s all right It all comes round again Are you with me? Piece it all Piece it together Nothing is Nothing’s forever So what fight it? These are my people I made it And so much more possible Are you with me?
11.
MAKE ME DISAPPEAR You can call me Serena Joy Drink in hand, In front of the TV I’m teary eyed Adjusting my CC People say, Where have you been? You may see me against the wall Maybe I’m caught up in this or that Don’t hold back how I react Sometimes got to sing in silence I know how to get outta here I know how to make me disappear You can’t take The basement out of the boy So I drop the bitter And keep the bitchy Do it with a smile Still being me I may be one for walks down memory lane See I’m feeling jet lag but I been nowhere Cold gob smacked and I don’t care Sometimes got to sing in silence I know how to get outta here I know how to make me disappear

Two Souls 03:42
TWO SOULS Sometimes I can see into the future Two souls looking out for one another They’re home But the house is long gone Someone said write a love song But we do them one better Did you ever contemplate forever? Cold busted And half a man Joints rusted Ain’t got no plan Out all night and sleep all day No direction but we’re on our way Cuz we do them one better Did you ever contemplate forever? Yes we do them one better Did you ever contemplate forever?

HER MAJESTY (for Brian) Her Majesty How could she dare? Now she really lives everywhere While we stay here But a muse is gone Now I’m waiting for a ghost to appear Please don’t make me wait too long You should be sauntering through that door right now Things won’t ever be the same somehow At this late stage We used to rage Oh how we raged Then I get that faraway look in my eye Just one more party Things will turnaround you’ll see If only Her Majesty How could she dare? Now she really lives everywhere While we stay here But a muse is gone Now I’m waiting for a ghost to appear Please don’t make me wait too long Please don’t make me wait too long

Pillow Town 03:09
PILLOW TOWN Now I don't have to try too hard Living the life of Reily One second since we part And I miss you already No matter what state I'm in You're there again and again Even if I end up in the cut out bin I still got a song to sing Welcome to Pillow Town It’s no thing just hanging around After the partying down We take the first train back to Pillow Town Now there's a world outside And a bag full of memory A little disappear and hide Never hurt nobody
