Tattoo

Seem a bit shy but I’ll fix that
Turn you on make you pant
Give you a workout make you scream
Come over let off some steam

I see you’re having some emotions
Just come and drink my potion
Pick you up when you’re feeling blue
Gonna tattoo my love on you

Tie me up I’ll tie you down
It is more fun that you’ve found
Satisfactions’ the name of my game
Stagnation will drive you insane

I see you’re having some emotions
Just come and drink my potion
Pick you up when you’re feeling blue
Gonna tattoo my love on you

Hey Hey Hey Hey

Come on Baby let’s fly
Oh yeah we’ll kiss the sky
Yeah baby, it’s a new routine
I’m your anyway sex machine

I see you’re having some emotions
Just come and drink my potion
Pick you up when you’re feeling blue
Gonna tattoo my love on you

Scarecrow didn't have to die
For the hate in another man's eyes
when they found him on the fence
what they saw made no sense
a man who used to have a face
brutality beyond disgrace
men said the victim was to blame
scarecrow used to have a name

What you gonna do
How you gonna feel
when the time man rises
Will you open up
Will you stand up
when will the tinman rise
societies in need
every one will bleed
when will the tinman rise
Where can we start
can you fin your heart
When will the tinman rise

Young lion didn't have to die
For the hate in another man's eyes
Who made you judge and the jury
Big damn bully you never worried
not stand your ground you chased him down
a gun vs candy is how his heaven was found
courage couldn't save the lion from the white hood

What you gonna do
How you gonna feel
when the time man rises
Will you open up
Will you stand up
when will the tinman rise
societies in need
every one will bleed
when will the tinman rise
Where can we start
can you fin your heart
When will the tinman rise

when you gonna stand up
When you gonna stand with me
when you gonna stand against hate in society
its not democracy
its just hypocrisy
that ends in atrocity
so stand against tyranny

Get up!
Stand up!
Get up with me!

What you gonna do
How you gonna feel
when the time man rises
Will you open up
Will you stand up
when will the tinman rise
societies in need
every one will bleed
when will the tinman rise
Where can we start
can you fin your heart
When will the tinman when will the tinman rise

earthquake

Written By: kivi neimi,victoria jewett,dede lee,owen mogom

a vision of mercurial magic
27 curse is so tragic
move mountain with her soul
gave fresh breath to rock n roll

earthquake girl
she was the texas pearl
earthquake girl
she gonna change this world

withdraw in a daze
and no there’s no escape
this soulful voice is so crazy like an earthquake

so shake ‘em, shake ‘em up
and make a milkshake for one
but what they don’t wanna see is where ingredients come from

when privilege is the lighter
it aint called a pariah
never gonna deny ya
this gas to make words fire

she took over your minds
expressed in every line
and by the end of time
your eyes became unblind

now you better make a decision and make it fast
desperate times call for desperate measures be an outcast
while we outlast a rigid struggle
call the police on the double
rapid-fire soul-injested words that have no end but trouble

recognize the timeless choice of man
to live a life free of hassle or to take a stand against the Klan
she got you shaking and making you wish her back from above
cuz only the ones who live for love are taken so young

Earthquake girl
She was the texas pearl
earthquake girl
she's gonna change this world

Earthquake earthquake ya we gonna make it shake
Earthquake earthquake ya we gonna make it shake
no compromise -- just read between the lines - you are all you've got -- read between the lines

got you more than satisfied
had a generation hypnotized
don't worry about what people think
just live follow your own beat

Earthquake girl
She was the texas pearl
earthquake girl
she's gonna change this world

we aint done yet

a voice thats gonna baptize you
cuz you feel a spirit true
not limit to the physical
Janis gets you into the mystical

Earthquake girl
She was the texas pearl
earthquake girl
she's gonna change this world
