Lyrics

2-Lonely

Written By: M.Charles/M.Brooks

It would be better to it get worse
to be the last and end up first
and the me for her that i could never let occur and the me for her that i could never let occur
Cause i'm just a little 2-Loney with you. tell me how can that be when it's just us two
I'm just a little 2-Lonely with you lonely by myself is something i'm prepared to do.It would be better to let it get hard. for a star on the
Boulevard when i woke up nappin from a dream i can't let happen
I'm just a little 2-Lonely with you tell how can that be when it's just us two I'm just a little 2-Lonely with you lonely by myself is something i'm prepared to do.
It would be better to let it end
especialy if we can't be friends what
was the reason for the sin oh my God i think it's happening again.
Cause i'm just a little 2-Lonely with you tell me how can that be when it's just us two
I'm just a little 2-Lonely with you
lonely by myself is something i'm prepared to do.

Justify

Written By: M.Charles/M.Brooks

I'm so concerned and i find it really strange don't you
we keep wishin at least theres one thing these polititians and priest won't do and when we catch them we seem so surprised don't we
doubt from knowing what the outcome won't be
The ends that JUSTIFY the means the muddy land man is swept away between the ends JUSTIFY the means the bloody hands that are kept away unsee
You keep writing these stupid songs about wondering where your lover went i'm trying to figure out why we should trust this Government
i know you want to just like i do but why when i'm not sure they weren't doin nuclear test off the coast of Thailand
For the ends JUSTIFY the means the muddy land man is swept away
between the ends that JUSTIFY the means the bloody hands that are kept away unseen
The risks are higher than the stakes yet you want to up it
Until you lose and you're not sure who is whos puppet and when the shit hits the fan they don't want y'all to stir up cause they in power till the final hour and power corrupts yeah the end that JUSTIFY what you've seen you must deny.
The ends that JUSTIFY the means the muddy land man is swept away between the ends JUSTIFY the means the bloody hands that are keept away unseen.
