Difference

Written By: Steve Page - RIVETHEAD

Hail the call for a new direction
Turn around and change the inflection

They don't control me, they don't
Manipulate me, they don't
I don't notice a difference
All looks the same from my cell

Turn your eyes to my condition
Self improvement, daily lesson

They don't control me, they don't
Manipulate me, they don't
I don't notice a difference
All looks the same from my cell

...(Chorus) 2x...
Look in my eyes - Took me forever to see
I can see light - Bring it back to me
Open my mind - Sometimes remember the scenes
Of the daylight - back when there was a me
Look in my eyes - Took me forever to see
I can see light - Bring it back to me
Open my mind - Sometimes remember the scenes
Of the daylight - back when there was a me
Footsteps from a place I once knew
Free to move, freedom to choose
Seems a dream, I fell through
In my darkness I can't move
...

Hail the call for a new direction

They don't control me, they don't
Manipulate me, they don't
I don't notice a difference
All looks the same from my cell

...(Chorus)...

Stay Alive

Written By: Steve Page - RIVETHEAD

It's Time we fight - Start choosing sides
Promised the world and got nothing

This time we're making it ours
This time we're taking it all
This time we're making the calls
This time we'll own it
No disrespecting our cause
Intent and without remorse
Take note, we're fighting out wars
This time we'll own it

We've made our mark - Still burn inside
We'll win this time - Make our own way

Hey - we're gonna make you believe

Step up the pace - time's now to save face
All's we need's the chance to prove that we're still in this

Stay alive - you say, you say
Stay alive - are you with me?
Stay alive - you say, you say
Stay alive - say it with me

There's just today - tomorrow's far away
Time deletes the chance for peace, now we're in this

Becoming

Written By: Steve page - RIVETHEAD

Was this meant to be? All the hurt we feel.
When we walk alone. When we disappear.

Could we plan for this? Build our walls from tears.
Turn our backs from fate. Hide from misery.
Could we turn back time? Can we set things right?
Could we say the things that we said differently?

And the fire builds in me. Can I accept things this way?
And I don't know, I don't know, I don't know how to change.

Angry becoming angry, angry. (x4)

Bring them home if they can't be near.
Let them know that we pray for their souls.
Bring them home, take away their fears.
Let them know that we miss them here.

And it makes me wonder why, I feel so sad inside
When I'm alone I cry. You were my everything.

Could we plan for this? Build our walls from tears.
Turn our backs from fate. Hide from misery.
Could we turn back time? Can we set things right?
Could we say the things that we said differently?

And the fire builds in me. Can I accept things this way?
And I don't know, I don't know, I don't know how to change.

Angry becoming angry, angry. (x4)

Bring them home if they can't be near.
Let them know that we pray for their souls.
Bring them home, take away their fears.
Let them know that we miss them here.

Sexy Back Remix

Written By: Timberlake, Timbaland, and Nate "Danja" Hills - Remix by Steve Page

[Verse 1]
I’m bringing sexy back
Them other boys don’t know how to act
I think you're special, what's behind your back?
So turn around and I'll pick up the slack.

Take 'em to the bridge

[Bridge]
Dirty babe
You see these shackles
Baby I’m your slave
I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave
It’s just that no one makes me feel this way

Take 'em to the chorus

[Chorus]
Come here girl
Go ahead, be gone with it
Come to the back
Go ahead, be gone with it
VIP
Go ahead, be gone with it
Drinks on me
Go ahead, be gone with it
Let me see what you’re torquing with
Go ahead, be gone with it
Look at those hips
Go ahead, be gone with it
You make me smile
Go ahead, be gone with it
Go ahead child
Go ahead, be gone with it
And get your sexy on
Go ahead, be gone with it

Get your sexy on
Go ahead, be gone with it
[Repeat 6 times]

Get your sexy on

[Verse 2]
I’m bringing sexy back
Them other boys don’t know how to act
Come let me make up for the things you lack
'Cause you're burning up I gotta get it fast

Take 'em to the bridge

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

Are you ready? Are you ready!

[Verse 3]
I’m bringing sexy back
You other boys watch how I attack
If that’s your girl you better watch your back
Cause she’ll burn it up for me and that’s a fact

Take 'em to the chorus

[Chorus]

It

Written By: Steve Page - RIVETHEAD

We’re gonna show them what we mean
We’re gonna build what they won’t believe
We’re gonna get them on their knees
We’re gonna make them eat what they reap

Everything’s so complicated
One second new and now it’s dated
Your politics are full of hatred
I can’t stand it
I don’t think that I can take it - give me some time
I’ll illustrate it

Your words are fake, I’m irritated
I can’t stand it

We’re gonna march on our beliefs
We’ll put an end to all this greed
We’re gonna silence your regime
And bring to light your misery

You’re so reckless, thought we’d never get this, so pretentious
Never overrate it, we will come and take it, then we’ll break it
Seems we’ve lost interest, sick of all your incest, all we’ve witnessed
Soon you’ll face this, turn around erase this, your new face lift

We’re gonna take down what they said
We’ll use their own words against them
We’re gonna take them, break them, hate them
Annihilate, we dominate, this is the start of our new machine
