Lyrics

Bows and Flows

Written By: Zack Ward

It's all just a bitter sweet lullaby,
when I was little it always used to make me cry, but I still listen to it every day-just to get by, and I think it's hilarious: are they really still tellin us to try?, thanks to them we're not dumb enough to let the last chapter of our childhood pass us by, cuz it was flop, slump, and then get outta the jam, so now here I am, stared down the big eleven and rode off into the sunset, now we know what it feels like on top of the world because anything's possible!, but that victory now seems so hollow and I'm still searching for a better tomorrow, like Donnie man I've definetly got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match, like when life throws you that one curve ball that you're never gonna catch, and this time when I'm going through the motions I get so choked up on emotion, I wanna SCREAM!, and let you know the way I feel inside, do you feel the same way?, why'd egos have to lead us astray, can't stop thinking about all the friendships I let slip away, that was never my intention, but I was blinded by ambition, and like Panic said we're all still so young and desperate for attention

Because I miss all the things that we're too proud to be when she says........"Don't waste you're FAIRY DUST........ on me"

hey, what's up, don't worry boo, I'm not gonna waste my fairy dust on you, but I'll still shout you out when I see you in the Jungle of Newl, back in Jr. High though we was so cool, like we was the bee knees, but inside jokes they don't grow on trees, and I'm sorry if you're too blind to see the little kid I still wear out on my sleeve, maybe you got confused by all the intricate lies I weave - and we've, all got disillusionment up to here, but when I stand up in that parking lot the last thing I wanna hear is talk about my resume becasue it's still not clear why I tried so hard, over the past five years, there are so many more important things than all the accolades but so often we fail to see because applying to college is all about me me me, that's just the way it is inherently, all I want, is to crawl under the covers and hide beneath each and every memory of the times when you always saw the best in me, all we want is success, all we want is to be half the people we're expected to be, I know the lights of the stage were too heavy for me, but I just want everything to go back to the way it used to be

Because I miss all the things that we're too proud to be when she says........"Don't waste you're FAIRY DUST........ on me"

well I've been up and I've been down, wrote some words down and down I'm world renown, back in Sacto and I'm dawning this crown of, kings and queens, and circus clowns, is it all just a show when we go downtown and act like we the shit, or do we really own this town?, because we've given so much and now it's time to take, but why is everything we say so damn fake?, smile and wave at each other for sanity's sake, baby girl you're so golden but is it worth the wait?, and they say you win some you lose some, either way I will never forget whereI came from, and you say you want an encore, but I feel so numb, and it looks like this "Hallelujah" song is all that I've got left to hum, as I hold myself accountable for all the battles I should have won, still got "Lose Yourself" on the tip of my tounge, sang it so many times never thought I would lose myself, believe me I wish I could rearrange my DNA so that I was in love with somebody else, cuz I've never been so lost in all the fairy tale lands, never wanted so badly to be back in the wings during "Solla Sollew", just looking at the way the light hits you, or walking on the beach in Santa Cruz, or watching that sunset in Decemeber, I just wanna let you know I will always remember

Because I miss all the things that we're too proud to be when she says........"Don't waste you're FAIRY DUST........ on me"

7th Grade Girl

Written By: Zack Ward

CHORUS: feeling so young and rebellious
young and rebellious
as to make them so jealous
we gon' make them so jealous
and ah uh ah ah ah, we gon' take on the world
you are forever my 7th grade girl

underneath all the seniority and arrogance, I'm really just Sasha Fierce, so it's time to unleash my inner Beyonce, cuz you don't know bout me, and you must not know bout her, Jamin 945, and Kiss 108 is what we prefer, Gilmore Girls, Lizzie McGuire, and One Tree Hill, some of our teachers really need to take a chill pill, I could act normal, but I don't think that I will, Me and you are so chill
And so cash money like dolla dolla bill
If you was rollin wit me, that would be so ill
And as time passes by you know I love you still
(but you’re just I little bit too cool for me
And I’m just a little but too cool for you
So let’s hit the stage baby girl, and show them how we do)

Chorus

Yo this is No. Cal, So. Cal
You can be my pen pal
I’ll hit you up with another pulp survey
Or we can throw a basement party – I’ll bring the Dasani
Because (I’m Michael you can be my Tobey
I’m Shaq you can me my Kobe)
Hey!, suga you so sweet
suga you so fly
jaws all be dropping when we walk by
and to all my Cali girls, you’re my sunshine
I’m shoutin you out with every note and every rhyme
Chock full with inside jokes in every line
So you can forget about that dime
And just sit back and vibe to LP09
Because we are so fine
And we got such good fashion sense
Yah we way cooler than Pete Wentz
When I’m around you, everything just makes sense
Cuz we always on the same page
And we feel no age
For all we know this could be 7th Grade
We click our heels every time we have to go
It’s funny tho, cuz you’re the only one who actually feels like home

Chorus

Hey yo wat’s up – notin’ we just chillin’ at the Holiday Inn
Bar Mitzvahs every weekend
King and queen of make believe and pretend
With inflatable microphones and plastic bling
Makes you wanna get up and sing
So I’m rappin along, standin up on that chair
While we play Coke and Pepsi and huggy bear
So enfactuated with you, I can’t help but stare
You got me scrambling like Steve McNair
Me and you baby girl – of course we don’t fight fair
And they can say what they want, cuz I really don’t care
I just want the girl who’s got so much flare
For your birthday I’ma get you a box of chocolates and a teddy bear
We’re eating churros while we play truth or dare
I only go to the football games because I know you’ll be there
When I look into your eyes everything is so clear
And baby girl have no fear
Lil Skittle is here

Chorus

Every day at school we rockin PJs and flip flops
We’ll be the new face of hip hop
Cuz you look just like and R+B song
With your sideways hat and baggy jeans on
Singing Avril songs at the top of our lungs – I don’t wanna let go
You rocking that San Diego Chargers baby blue retro
Go crazy every time they play shorty get low
As far as I’m concerned you’re the star of every show
Member we met somewhere over the rainbow
and I’m back from Neverland don’t wanna forget my shadow

Chorus

Project Graduation

Written By: Zack Ward

Listen up little boys and girls of the world
09 will never die
It will always survive
Through the memories
And the ways we've graced these halls
Together we are never small
We are legendary!
Our friendships live on in every possible way
Some people tryin to say that we’re fading away
But we are here to stay
And it will always be the same
To me this never gets lame or old
And I’m just waiting for our next chapter to unfold
Never gonna say goodbye because the class of 2009 will never die, yeah!

I hope you fall in love tonight
I hope that everything turns out alright

A design of blue and gold, and shades of RJ Grey
That feeling I get when I look in your eyes
set to the remix of cheesy pick-up lines
where legends have passed and dreamers will play
a place of many finds
underneath all the tears elation and fears
you will see that there’s always a chance here
every person is moving in an exciting disarray
and to the music you begin to sway and dance the night away

I hope you fall in love tonight
I hope that everything turns out alright

Tonight it’s “hey baby” and nostalgia for vitamin C
If it matters to you then it matters to me
So swirly shake it up and I’ll drop the LP
I love ya’ll too much to put it into words, and we feel so invincible!
Like this is the only all-nighter we ever really wanted to pull
For the longest time the glass was half empty, now it’s half full
And I had a dream last night
about when the girl all the boys wanna dance with
meets the boy who’s had too many chances
and they reminisce over former romances
and talk about how
the east side remembers every tear we cried
and the south side remembers the way we always felt inside
but now its time to put our differences aside
and unite in the commons!
Because for at least tonight I don’t have to watch you get drunk
And maybe I am just an arrogant punk
All that matters is that you’ll be my friend when all is said and done
This grade is second to none
So hold your head up high
And touch the sky
Because baby we’ve won, baby! We’ve won

I hope you fall in love tonight
I hope that everything turns out alright

Running Back

Written By: Zack Ward

CHORUS: I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I run thru the halls like a running back
Swagga on high, gotta keep it in tact
Now all the girls saying that they want be back
Because I strut thru these halls like a running back
Soaking up every trophy and every plaque
Don’t got time to talk, I’ve gotta get to class
Because I strut thru these halls like a running back

Yea run it back, I’m running back, swagga on high gotta keep it in tact, my incessant search for fame has got you thinking I’m insane, got the one ego you will never tame, 06 got out the game, but now I’m back and I’m putting my name in, we don’t make it rain, but when I spit on the mic the feeling you get is exactly the same, took me off the honor roll but I took it in stride, what we’ve lost in work ethic we’ve gained in pride, yah that was a proud gain, I learned everything I know on MacLeod Lane, welcome to the main event, like Kenny Mayne, it’s all common sense just like T-Pain, and we pulled off the upset like Tyrese Rice, catching passes from Brooklyn’s Young like Jerry Rice, if you want to insult me you better think twice, name’s 14.2 instead of keeping it ghetto I keep it precise

CHORUS

Look at all the arrogance we’ve allowed, and yet I couldn’t be more proud, we unstoppable cuz we make moves like the bus, no one on the corner has swagga like us, and I’m just a sardonic person that’s how I roll, academia on high finally starting to take it’s toll, always know that Smart is where I got my start, but I think it’s time for me and Intelligence to part, I think I’ll major in art, or maybe go pro in Mario Kart, to be brilliant is to be human, to you I’ll stay true man, favorite movie’s always gonna be Space Jam, and I hear them talking man, like they don’t know what I am, what’s my genre I call it Razeljam, cuz I never hesitate to shout out the fam, so follow my lead, as we emerge from this stampede, if you’re not 09 do not pas go do not proceed, everything I do is at a rapid pace, you don’t have to say you hate me it’s written all over your face, they trying to make all our hard work go to waste, but man I don’t ever want to leave this place

CHORUS

Senior year I hit the ground running, you can feel our dynasty coming, I’ma keep running, I’ma keep running, and shortys feeling so much love, while I’m force to play the field like I won the gold glove, fell in love on the back nine, trying to make that birdie putt, they say things get better in time, but I feel so down on my luck, this right here is our time to shine, but you jus gon get yours and I’m gon get mine, tell them underclassmen to get in line, I’ma be the MVP like Hines, June 08 knocked it out the park now I’m doing my home run trot like Nixon, and I just wanna be a Terp like Juan Dixon, the audacity to tell you to shut up and listen, if you don’t like my beat then get up out the kitchen, and don’t insult me whatever you do, cuz I’m the one who’s the who, like Cindy Lou, senior dress up day I blue by you, told you I’m the best but you already knew, split the red sea and let me come thru, seniors 09 this is how we do,

CHORUS

Love Potion

Written By: Zack Ward

Tired of hiding my emotion, so here’s my love potion, and not a whole lot of double entendre, but once you press play I can make you say, hey baby, no mix tape skip right to the long play, everybody’s in love with everybody else and all the gossip is making me sink, got shot by cupid and played by Tink, all the flashing lights on this red carpet are making me think, that you were in love with me when you gave me that wink, so high off these crushes, yah love is on the brink, holding hands while we skate around the rink, get lost inside each other’s gaze, I don’t wanna blink, wish this night would never end, 182 like blink, so nervous around you now we’re turning pink, come with me baby girl and I can be your missing link, senior year’s its own love potion, I don’t need a drink, 1st white boy to team up with JT since N’SYNC, and I’m 18 years old and I’m addicted to ink, but I think, the one thing that I may love more, is you baby girl you’re the one I adore

Future sex love sounds, you’ve got me floating nine feet off the ground, out in the first round, fidelity so high, please don’t say bye bye bye, cuz you know it’s gonna be me, I’ll come through for you in the clutch like Robert Horry, please don’t ignore me, and I’ll be loyal to you like a phan from Philly, together think of all that we could be, our kingdom would stretch as far as your eyes can see, you’ve got me back on my knees, and I didn’t write half this shit man – Pete Wentz did, my love life’s the big dance and you’re an automatic bid, best friends in two seconds just like we was little kids, our love is stronger, cuz we know things grown ups just don’t know, I’m cools like yo yo, and I’m here to deliver this echo, so leggo my ego, I miss you more than Travis McCoy misses free throws, girls flirtin with me wherever we go, we live in a cynical world, but oh, you had me at hello, I’m the rapper with the illest flow, and I got a thing for you, that’s all you need to know, 2nd floor west wing, yea WELCOME TO THE SHOW!!!!!!!!

Out In The Cold

Written By: Zack Ward

Chicago kids with lyrics so bold
only poker face I got left but I ain't gon' fold
and I know you told me to stay gold
but don't you know you left me out in the cold?

I blazed this paper trail with so many scribbles
and now I've got you hanging on every syllable
but it's pitiful, why 'd things get so f**king political
and I've got, nostalgia for a song I haven't even heard yet
invested all my emotion in one track, I guess that was a bad bet
cuz baby can't you see:
they don't want FOB, they only want TIP
but I'm thankful for the inspiration it has given me
to put down! the headphones
and pick up a pen
because when, I leave this town I want you by my side
until then I'll keep rockin' that Wilmette vibe

thought I wasn't even allowed to rap until I listened to The Rising Tied
and but so welcome to this is my emotional roller coaster ride
and baby girl tell me what's it gonna take for us to swallow each other's pride
and if I ever said I hate you then you know that I lied
(yah uh yah uh yah uh yah, you know that I lied)

King of the Dirty South with lyrics so bold
only poker face I got left but I ain't gon' fold
and I know you told me to stay gold
but don't you know you left me out in the cold?

I'ma make you dance dance like Joe Trohman
f**k you man - I'm fueled by ramen
and everything I say isn't gonna be PC,
but you'll never, eva!, take the (drama outta me.)

Boston kid with lyrics so bold
only poker face I got left but I ain't gon' fold
and I know you told me to stay gold
but don't you know you left me out in the cold?

The Words I'm Writing Make No F*****g Sense But Hopefully My Handwriting Is Intoxicating Enough

Written By: Zack Ward

CHORUS: This is the line we walk
And when they talk, they talk about us
But this time we’re not gonna let it get to us
Why in the world would we let them bring us down
Because we own this town, this is our hometown
This is our hometown

I’m over it, so over it, over it, so over it

I’m over it, I’m over being over it, tired of the same old shit, first acceptance letter I get and that would be it, this slacking off thing’s a really big hit, so polish those trophies and soak up all the glamour and glitz, but I am so over it, people wanna know how I’ve been fairing, but I’m so done with caring, and even though the mistakes are glaring, I’m so done with caring, so done with caring, I barely even care enough to write a song telling to that I don’t care, but I just had to let you know you’ve always been my favorite thing to gently mock, I don’t know what you’re looking at, cuz I don’t see any time left on the clock, it’s time to warm up the bus, pop the champagne, and all the above, it’s time we show something other than this textbook some love

CHORUS

There are more important things that should be lasting forever, and I don’t give a shit whether or not you think I’m clever, I’ve got nothing left to prove, don’t like my attitude and wanna take my trophy away, that’s fine, just take a look at my GPA, I did not come all this way just to hear you say I’m not good enough, so strip me of each and every accolade, and I’ll celebrate anyway, ain’t nothing gonna on my parade, and I’m not like Joe Torre when he left NY, because I need incentives this year if you want me to try, we’re so young and so ******* fly , play all day and we still get by, this is paradise so I’m not allowed to cry, but just take me away to that malt shop in the sky, when I said I cared about school that was all a lie, because really I’m so sick of the Ivy League lure, I want something that’s worth fighting for, give me awards, give me report cards galore, but I want something that’s worth fighting for, I want something that’s worth fighting for

CHORUS

Sick and tired of acting nice, and no we will not put the champagne on ice, but the pressure keeps getting greater and greater, as we shake, shake, shake, yah I’m your money maker, now more than ever, I just keep getting faker, all the true things I wanted to say got lost in translation, in this college board driven nation, where the one thing nobody pokes fun at is education, this is bull shit, let’s take back possession of our own generation, to bad grades I am so immune, I know graduation’s gonna come too soon, but I am so immune, I am so immune, this is our legacy, we’ve graced these halls, and painted the walls, blue and gold with integrity, because this is what we do, these are the battles we fight, these are the various reasons we can’t sleep at night, when all we can do is say hey Monday, and hold on tight, but I gotta ask, why’s nobody kissing everything in sight, keep working hard and everything’s gonna be alright, but it’s not my fight, baby it’s not my fight, painted ourselves blue and gold, but we left each other out in the cold, trying to fit the mold, the demands for excellence have gotten so old, they’ve gotten so old, truth be told, there are more important things to be excellent at, you gotta believe in that, believe in that

CHORUS

Red Carpet Blues (chorus only)

Written By: Zack Ward

808s and heartbreak, the shared madness of two
drive me crazy with every single thing that you do
and we've made it all the way to Solla Sollew
but you make me so blue, you make me so blue
