Track Name: I would like to be the boss of You
Use your mind to think it through
I can't help
But I would like to be the boss of you
And tell you what to do like a prophet on the move
Waste a word or two

Used to think everything was false
That's still true
But I would rather just be true to You
With a capitol Y
Call the shots and mandate who is hot

You took me a million times to Calgary
And let me see the holes dug in cement by those
Who wish to burrow in below the law
And really make a mess
Track Name: Boogie Dance
God damn those curses that I put on myself
Good guru told me secret to a personal health

Boogie dance is not allowed
in the design of "What You Should Be"

Get quick to the what-you-don't-think-you-can-face
I've been so blind to the negative space

Boogie dance is not allowed
in the design of "What You Should Be"

Stop your mind-negating decision making
"I don't know" should be your remedy

I told ya I've been looking for you every day
But there's all the limitations that they put in the way

Boogie dance is not allowed
in the design of "What You Should Be"

Stop your mind-negating decision making
"I don't know" should be your remedy
Track Name: Metal God
You don't even know what the day,
what the time is, where you are
It's a mess of a life
Where is the flow?
How you get all the ideas in your head?
Do they fall from the sky?

How is it so that you question every fucking thing you see,
but you're still so behind?
"I don't know" was a choice and you made it
Are you on to something this time?

I believed in you to get me to believe that I had a voice
Next thing you know you're tearing the walls down
And making noise with your party friends

How is it so that you question every fucking thing you see,
but you're still so behind?
"I don't know" was a choice and you made it
Are you on to something this time?
Track Name: the Light Inside
There's a lot to discover
Between the sun and the moon
When the wind is rising
I burn for you
I believed I could reach you
Through my thoughts and my mind
But I'm missing the colors
Red, blue, and green blind

I hear all my best friends
Singing over the waves
Maybe later we'll go out
We don't do nothing anyway
I thought that I loved you
But what the hell did I know?
There's a lot to discover
Let your heart and soul grow

All you need is the light inside
