Track Name: Ring the Alarm
Shawty’s round the block but I wish she was gone
Cause everytime we kick it something always goes wrong
And I ain’t even really trying to pick up the phone
Cause everything I say is gonna come out wrong
Junkies on the corner always doing me harm
Always trying to get me put that shit in my arm
Empty my bank, maybe take out a loan
Every other day I’ve got to ring the alarm
Oh Lord, Oh Lord
Ring the alarm
Ring the alarm
Jessie’s not 16 but she’s still underage
If I was her dad I’d lock her up in a cage
She looks like 21 but I’m trying to bail
Then out come the cops to take my ass into jail
We know what you did, yeah we know what you’ve done
Your’re getting girls drunk who are under 21
They say I lost all my luck and I lost all my charm
And every fucking day they’ve got to ring the alarm
Oh Lord, Oh Lord
Ring the alarm
Ring the alarm
Damn, my landlord gotta ring the alarm
Drinking in my car and they ring the alarm
Driving on the beach and they ring the alarm
Playing my guitar and they ring the alarm
Bang bang, shawty wanna ring the alarm
Needle in your arm, you’ve got to ring the alarm
No matter my luck no matter my charm
As soon as I'm gone they're gonna ring the alarm
Track Name: This Time Again
Homegirl
Don’t be so sad
I don’t think that loving you
Would be so bad
Cause I’ve got faith in you
And what we have
So let my love come through
It ain’t no fad (no, it ain’t no fad)

I don’t wanna wait, I don’t wanna wait
Until the sun goes down again
I don’t wanna hate, I don’t wanna hate
On everyone that you call a friend
Are you gonna make time for me
Or ya gonna push me away
This time again
This time again

Our world
Could be so rad
If we combined the two
Into one sweet pad
There ain’t got to be no rules
We’ll sleep in the sand
But dont play me no fool
I’d be so sad (yeah, I’d be so sad)

I know you’re grown up
And I don’t wanna stop ya
From doin all the things that
You haven’t done yet
But as soon as your done
I wanna be your man
To get to your love
I’ll do whatever I can
And I’ll be taking your hand
And we could dance all night
I never wanna fuss and
And I never wanna fight
So if you think that you might
And then I’ll be taking you home
Don’t wanna spend a lifetime being alone


I don’t wanna wait, I don’t wanna wait
Until the sun goes down again
I don’t wanna hate, I don’t wanna hate
On everyone that you call a friend
Are you gonna make time for me
Or ya gonna push me away
This time again
This time again
Track Name: Played Out
And dont ya wanna take a ride with me
And don’t ya wanna go against society
Don’t ya wanna roll one with me girl?
Cause you’re the only one I got in this world

And are you gonna roll with the crowd
Or you gonna let it all hang out
You don’t gotta hide from the sound
And you aint gotta leave it all night long

Cause she’s loving up all my styles
And she’s loving up all my beats
She’s move to my house and then we’re dancing in the streets
She’s got them flowers in her hair
She’s harmonizing with me
I fantasized, that’s all I ever wanted it to be
She gonna move
Into my pad and I’ll be right downstairs
And we’ll be rocking all night
We go and crash everywhere
I got no worries, no cares
No need to get so impaired
And all of your love I’m never having to share

Don’t you wanna change the tempo
You don’t wanna wear it out
Stuck inside your little bubble
Has it gotten played out, played out

And dont ya wanna take a ride with me
And don’t ya wanna go against society
Don’t ya wanna roll one with me girl?
Cause you’re the only one I got in this world

I seen her thru all the years, she’s getting hotter and hotter
I want her for my wife, I want her having my daughter
We go and play in the water, I treat her like I’m her father
You see me in the cut homie, so don’t even bother
It’s the wrong move
A couple years and I’ll be all outta tears
I’ll shed em for my old lady
Until she up and appears
Don’t wanna face all my fears
Just gonna cover my ears
And drown all of my sorrows in a few hundred beers
Cause I’m a fool for you love
You know theres no one above ya
Got no reason to look
Because I already found ya
Got no reason to clown ya
Always gonna be around ya
Till my very last day
You know I’ll always be down for ya
Track Name: Steel Driver
Well ya hit me in the head
I’m a Steel Driver
Steel Driver
Steel Driver
Yeah they hit me in the head
I’m a Steel Driver
Steel driver
Steel driver

Well ya hit me in the head, hit me in the right place
I’m gonna come back with a slug to your face
I’m numb to the pain, I’m numb to the taste
Got a lot of fools that I wanna erase

Been moving all around ever since I been knowing
Nowhere is my home and it’s nowhere that I’m going
Got a lot of love that you know I ain’t showing
Gonna lay it down, for those who ain’t knowing

I’m gonna hold my own and I’m steady with the chrome
You wanna step up and get it straight to your dome?
I’m always on the roam, never do what I’m told
Chillin’ for a minute, then I’m back on the road
Track Name: Hey Rudeboy
She said “Hey Rudeboy, it’s been a long time
since I noticed you”
I said “Hey Rudegirl, it’s been a long time,
I wanna chill with you”

A very rudegirl, I knew it all along
She had doc marten boots and tracks up her arms
She had a coat from Vietnam and
a bag of Heroin
begging for change down on route 21
I said girl you know my name
don’t be sketched out at all
we used to kick it back at Matt’s
and go halves on eightballs
I kinda fell off and was acting strange
I can give you a lift
but I ain't got no more change

She said “Hey Rudeboy, it’s been a long time
since I noticed you”
I said “Hey Rudegirl, it’s been a long time,
I wanna chill with you”

Bacardi Limon, 2 shots of Patron
a couple blunts
now I gotta drive this bitch home
She put her name in my phone and said
call when you’re alone
later down the road
let the story be told

All the guys wanna fuck you babe
All the guys wanna get you paid
All the guys wanna take you home
But I wanna see you put down the spoon
Track Name: Keep It On The Low
I hear ya screaming
It’s bound to get loud
But yo you got no reason
For runnin your mouth
I got the feeling
You let it get out
I know you haven’t got a reason
To be talking about it yeah

It’s like this
Just keep it under cover
Nobody gotta know
That you’ve been my other lover
Theres nothing to discover
Aint gotta tell your brother
No need to run and tell your friends
No need to tell your mother no

Just keep it on the low
Nobody gotta know
That we was out alone
That we were ever home

Just keep it on the low
Nobody gotta know
That we was ever close
Just keep it on the low

I’m never proud of how it goes down
You were the one that I found
Cause no one else was around
Your all loud and telling all of your friends
And now it only depends
If I can get it again, right?

Was my plan, to keep it inside
I’m never one to tell lies
But I got no alabis
Was really thinking you could wear a disguise
But I can tell by your eyes you got me under surprise

Just keep it on the low
Nobody gotta know
That we was out alone
That we were ever home

Just keep it on the low
Nobody gotta know
That we was ever close
Just keep it on the low

I hear ya screaming
Its bound to get loud
But you got me on blast
Bumpin all over town
I got the feeling
That you’re running around
You better make no mistake
Remember, don’t make a sound

It’s like that, just keep it undercover
Nobody gotta know what we doin undercovers
Theres nothing to discover
Aint gotta tell your brother
No need to run and tell your friends
No need to tell your mother, no

Just keep it on the low
Nobody gotta know
That we was out alone
That we were ever home

Just keep it on the low
Nobody gotta know
That we was ever close
Just keep it on the low
Track Name: Headed West
I’m headed west for the rest of the summer
This towns dead and I got find another
I’ll go to LA and stay with my brother

I hit the streets and I stay by the ocean
I see the waves moving in slow motion
I got a thought, yeah I got a notion

Its been a while since I left that Summer
I'm out west and they're living on the other side
Id go home, my ears wont let me fly
I'm stuck now and I shouldn't even bother
But I cant leave even if I wanna
Now I don't know if I really even wanna stay

Don't wanna go back home
Don't wanna be alone
Don't wanna leave this all to me
Don't wanna leave my home
Don't wanna be no clone
Don't wanna live with some disease
Track Name: Amigos Con Beneficios
She wanna gimme lovin
I’ll tell you why
Never had a man
That could ever look her in the eye
But she wanna keep telling me lies
I know whats going on
When ya going out with other guys
Whats her alabli?
I don’t mind
As long as I can get it with no commitment
I’ll be fine
I’m at the spot at the corner
Where I’ll meet you round ten
We’re drinking and I’m thinking
That were gonna be friends

She been around the block
I know the type
Got a long past
Got her lips around the pipe
She’s outta work but she’s workin tonight
We’re laying in bed
It’s got me feeling alright
Cause everything is tight
I’m really thinkin I might
Let you sleep around till’
The morning light
You get a call from my phone
I hate being alone
Might even tell my friends
That I’m taking you home

Put it down, put it down, put it down for me
Lay it down, low down where nobody can see
Don’t come around till the end of the night
You know what it is and you know its alright

Put it down, put it down, what you got for me
I know ur crazy, but you still know I like it see
Don’t really care what youre doin here lately
You make it so easy

Yeah man I know what youre saying
That I cant turn her around
She had a thing
With almost every single guy in this town
Shes always wearing a frown
She keep bringing me down
Shes never got a man
Shes always playing around
But that’s better for me
Cause then nobody can see
Don’t ever come around
Cause I don’t want this to be
Something more than a fling
A homie-lover type thing
I’m liking what you bring though
You make my ass wanna sing

Put it down, put it down, put it down for me
Lay it down, low down where nobody can see
Don’t come around till the end of the night
You know it is and you know its alright

Put it down, put it down, what you got for me
I know ur crazy but you still know I like it see
Don’t really care what you doin here lately
You make it so easy
Track Name: My Turn
How you gonna run around with another man
No ones gonna love you like I love you
No one ever can
You got me thinking that I was your one and only plan
Then you go and tell me this
I really cannot understand
Cause now I’m feeling like I’m waiting in vain
I go through so much pain
When my head hears your name
It’s goin smooth and then you turn it around
And I don’t wanna get loud but this is fucked up now

It’s always looking like your flippin the switch
And then I’m back in the ditch
But if you gimme one wish, I
Might wish we could hold it together
Been thru thick and thin, up and down, stormy weather now
We go together now
I’m getting better now
Put her body to the bed then I wear it out
I’m going all out
You know what I’m about
I want you to myself baby girl
That’s without a doubt, but I’m

Never gonna get my turn
Never gonna get my time
Although you’re my only girl
Never will I make you mine

It’s so funny how you say that you love me
But you see me in public, girl
You won’t even hug me
You’re so lovely but so hard to please
Every other day you got me down on my knees
Begging you to come home
Praying that you’ll take me back
Saying that you don’t care
Giving me a heart attack
And theres more than that
That’s just what I can fit in the rhyme
Well have to save the rest for another time


I’m still dreaming, eventhough were not together
That we will be someday, eventhough I know better that
It’s never going down, I never was good enough
You hide me from your friends and your family, still I stuck
By you till this day, never gave a fuck what they say
They put me down but you still loved me anyway
Now you’re on your own, you aint got no one with you
You’re the one I think about
Tell me girl if u miss me now

Never gonna get my turn
Never gonna get my time
Although you’re my only girl
Never will I make you mine

Never gonna get my turn
Never gonna get my time
Although you’re my only girl
Never will I make you mine
Track Name: Harder We Come
I said the harder we come
The harder they go down
You're coolin for a minute
Then you're dirt in the ground
I cant cruise around town
Cause I'm all outta luck
I pound two drinks
Then I stumble out the truck
I left my cash at home
And I'm starting to mumble
What happened to the days
When I used to be humble
Now every time i'm out
Some dude wanna rumble
I cant go to sleep without doing a ___
In this concrete jungle
Its real hard to survive
An everyday struggle just to stay alive
There’s no one on the street
That’s looking out for me
That monkey on my back ain't ever gonna leave
And you can feel all the greed
And you can see all the violence
Rather speak my mind
Than to sit here in silence
No ones gonna find us
We’ll be here all alone
Another lost soul
From another broken home

When it comes to this
I'm always gonna bleed
Cause it's the only thing that I know how to be
I said that's the only thing that I know how to do
I did it for myself man, its never for you
And all the things I been through
Man, you wouldn’t believe
I got scars on my face and I wear em on my sleeve
And you can tell when I breathe
That everything is with passion
You got no style
All u got is fucking fashion
You know that I'm passing
I ain't having none of it
Stay true to yourself man
And something's gonna come of it
Later down the road
When you're haggard and old
60 years old with the mic control
Another words I'm saying
I'm never gonna stop
I'll do it all my life, I'll do it till I drop
You can call all the cops
Unplug the set
But know that my respect
You ain't ever gonna get
Track Name: Down By The River
And if our eyes should meet, down by the river
Please look deep and tell me all the things
That I wanna hear
Cause it’s all too much, too much to write
And I don’t even know if I should even fight
To get you back again
But I like the things you do to me
All the sweet things that you say to me
We were meant to be

Down by the river, the river of soul
Getting us together will never grow old
Down by the river, the river together
Could it be fate or is it the weather?
And I don’t even know if I should even fight
To get you back again
Before I even do, before I even try
I need a Heineken

And if our eyes should meet, down on the corner
Please look deep and tell me all the things
That I wanna hear, make it very clear
Cause you’re much too much, for me to love
I’m feeling like an addict, cause you're sort of a drug
My feelings are erratic but it’s more than a crush
Girl you get me high like the finest of kush
But I really wanna know if your feeling me too
I really wanna know
Is your love true?
Is your love true?
Track Name: Doin What I'm Doin
Well Ive been known to put some cold ones back
Start a fight at the bar
Get tossed out, land flat on my back
And I’ve been known to stay up past dawn
Smoked out, start a fire in the kitchen
And they ring the alarm
And I been known to play guitar all night
Waking up with a chick, that in the light
Ain’t looking quite right
And I been looking around
But I can’t really focus
Knowing that I cant keep doin what I’m doin

Cause I’m a little bit older
But I still ain’t wise
I got the fifth of vodka
And case of weiser
Driving up and down the road
Can’t get no higher
Watching for the cops that be coming behind ya
And I been doing all those things that I used to do
There’s never money to spend
But always something to use
Why cant I refuse
You know I gotta resist
To get this thing off, I need my brain to the fullest

Even now that I’m buzzin’
I still be speaking the truth
You’re thinking that it won’t, but it will happen to you
And now your moneys all gone and all your family too
You wanna lay low but there’s just nothing you can do
I said you wanna backout but now it’s bigger than you
Before you play the game, you gotta learn the rules
And now you pay all your dues
And try to keep on moving
Knowing that you cant keep doing what your doin, come on

Cause I’m the one that you want
The one you desire
The one that will go and set your car on fire
I’m the one with punch, the one with the plan
The one with the 40oz drink in his hand
And I’m the one with the gun, the one with the passion
The one with the bed that you can always crash in
I’m the one with the green, the one with the songs
The one that will keep you rocking all night long, come on
All night long, come on
I wanna keep you rocking all night long, come on
