Track Name: Can't Kill The Beat
You don't look back,
You don't even reply,
You're in the city glowing up,
And you ain't even gotta try,
That's V.I.P.,
That's your party night for free,
No you don't need a plan,
Just unpredictability,

They don't try cause you look so mean,
Hard to get like you're quarantined,
You can't lie it's a compromise,
When you step out into that scene,
They hear your name like an afterglow,
A personality that no one knows,
You're not trying to make friends tonight, oh yeah,

They can't stop the rhythm,
They can't kill the beat,
When you feel the music,
Moving through your feet,
They can't stop the rhythm,
They can't kill the beat,
When you feel the music,
Moving through your feet,
Ooh yeah,

Can't kill the beat,
This rhythm moving through the street,
This ain't no accident,
It's natural ability,
Crime Nite alright,
We're gonna break some shit tonight,
This ain't for the faint of heart,
No sleep till morning light,

They don't try cause you look so mean,
Hard to get like you're quarantined,
You can't lie it's a compromise,
When you step out into that scene,
They hear your name like an afterglow,
A personality that no one knows,
You're not trying to make friends tonight, oh yeah,

They can't stop the rhythm,
They can't kill the beat,
When you feel the music,
Moving through your feet,
They can't stop the rhythm,
They can't kill the beat,
When you feel the music,
Moving through your feet,
Ooh yeah,
Track Name: Cold Forgetter
You think you're better, such a cold forgetter,
You found the answer sticking to the banter,
That you're a leader not another needer,
You see a winner, I just see a stranger,
You think you're better, Oh you're so much better,
The main abstractor - that you're just an actor,
Behold your capture by your brainwasher,
Ego destroyer forcing your departure,

Ooh they really got to you didn't they?
And there was so much I had to say,
But I was so far away,
So far away,

The way I see you,
Is not the way you see yourself,
The way you see me,
It's like you see somebody else,
I see right through you,
I know that you don't know yourself,
But you don't see me,
You don't remember who I am,

The way I see you,
Is not the way you see yourself,
The way you see me,
It's like you see somebody else,
I see right through you,
I know that you just lost yourself,
But you don't see me,
You don't remember who I am

I'll make it clearer, do you see the mirror?
You keep on standing closer but you don't feel any nearer,
You're a forgiver, you're a forgetter,
Are you being honest? Are you really better?
Do you remember when you said forever?
Thought that you were stronger,
Never had a future,
Tell me that you're smarter, such a self starter,
Tell me that you're better, such a cold forgetter,

Ooh they really got to you didn't they?
And there was so much I had to say,
But I was so far away,
So far away,

The way I see you,
Is not the way you see yourself,
The way you see me,
It's like you see somebody else,
I see right through you,
I know that you don't know yourself,
But you don't see me,
You don't remember who I am,

The way I see you,
Is not the way you see yourself,
The way you see me,
It's like you see somebody else,
I see right through you,
I know that you just lost yourself,
But you don't see me,
You don't remember who I am
Track Name: Electric Eyes
She said she could become anyone,
Came to find I never knew who she was,
Had me thinking there was nobody else,
Came to find I was in love with myself,

Electric eyes,
Electric eyes,
She's got no heart,
A cold disguise,
Electric eyes,
Electric eyes,
She kills you with that cold goodbye

No she don't belong to anyone,
(Ooh)
She won't wait until the feeling's gone,
She can take the shape of anyone,
She don't mean what she said,
She never felt it in the first place

She's nothing without someone to be,
Like a mirror she reflects what she sees,
Hard to love when you don't know who you are,
Hard to feel with a chameleon heart,

Electric eyes,
Electric eyes,
She's got no heart,
A cold disguise,
Electric eyes,
Electric eyes,
She kills you with that cold goodbye

No she don't belong to anyone,
(Ooh)
She won't wait until the feeling's gone,
She can take the shape of anyone,
She don't mean what she said,
She never felt it in the first place
Track Name: Ocean Lights
The city streets look like a desert scene,
When I'm walking them alone,
And out my window,
I see the lights glow,
Calling me back to someone,

You gave me kind of love that's so hard to find,
But you change like the ocean,
You gave me kind of love I thought was only mine,
But you gotta stay in motion,

The highways end at ocean sand,
I walk the beaches alone,
And I remember,
That warm December,
When I felt your heart go cold,

You gave me kind of love that's so hard to find,
But you change like the ocean,
You gave me kind of love I thought was only mine,
But you gotta stay in motion,
Track Name: One Nite
It was the first time I'd meet you,
Under the lights and the speakers,
It was the last time I'd see you,
Just for one night,

Come and sit down next to me,
Until the sun comes around,
I know you've got nothing else to do,
But live this moment we've found,
And when the stars fade away to light,
You know we both have to go,
But we can just get away tonight,
And we can make time go slow,

It was the first time I'd meet you,
Under the lights and the speakers,
It was the last time I'd see you,
Just for one night,

It was the first time I'd meet you,
Under the lights and the speakers,
It was the last time I'd see you,
Just for one night,

Come and watch the lights with me,
Pretend there's no one around,
I see your eyes you feel it too,
So simple but so profound,

And when the stars fade away to light,
You know we both have to go,
But we can just get away tonight,
And we can make time go slow,

It was the first time I'd meet you,
Under the lights and the speakers,
It was the last time I'd see you,
Just for one night,
Track Name: Dream Lights
Your heart cries out as you're leaving,
And the rain's as loud as your breathing,
It took less that you thought to leave,
Now the distance is calling,
And all our defenses are falling,
It took more than we thought to stay away,

Every time I dream I see your eyes,
(staring through me)
Glowing like a thousand city lights,
(calling to me)
Every time I dream I see your eyes,
(staring through me)
Glowing like a thousand city lights,
(calling to me)

The street so populated,
But we feel isolated,
Everything, and always something more,
Miles apart I can't reach you,
In the skyline I can still see you,
Don't need starts,
I've seen them all before

Every time I dream I see your eyes,
(staring through me)
Glowing like a thousand city lights,
(calling to me)
Every time I dream I see your eyes,
(staring through me)
Glowing like a thousand city lights,
(calling to me)
Track Name: City Boy
Been thinking about,
That night I saw you,
How we turned around,
Cause we both have egos to protect,
You were standing tall,
Arms crossed in the corner,
And I just played it cool,
It was too loud to talk anyway,
You've already heard,
Some stories about me,
Yeah they're so absurd,
And I assumed you be a bitch,
But something you need,
When you're stuck in a small town,
Someone equally,
Opposed to dramatic small town life,

Cause I'm a city boy,
You're not a small town girl,

Anything we do is alright,
Just as long as we leave this place tonight,
Anything we do is alright,

Cause I'm a city boy,
You're not a small town girl,
Track Name: Follow The Lights
Don't sit tight,
Don't wait for life to call on you,
Don't wait until you know exactly what you're gonna do,

Yeah aren't you tired of being afraid
Aren't you tired of what other people say,
Don't you know that it doesn't have to be this way?

Don't walk that path again,
Don't go the same way,
I know there's something more for you,
Waiting somewhere,

Follow the lights,
I'll meet you there,
Follow the lights,
I'll meet you there,
Follow the lights,
They'll take you home,
Home is wherever you want to go,
Follow the lights,
They'll take you home,
Home is wherever you want to go,

Don't be afraid,
To go and look for something new,
Cause you can settle down,
When you get to old to move,

Yeah aren't you tired of being afraid
Aren't you tired of what other people say,
Don't you know that it doesn't have to be this way?

Don't walk that path again,
Don't go the same way,
I know there's something more for you,
Waiting somewhere,

Follow the lights,
I'll meet you there,
Follow the lights,
I'll meet you there,
Follow the lights,
They'll take you home,
Home is wherever you want to go,
Follow the lights,
They'll take you home,
Home is wherever you want to go,
Track Name: Memories (Feat. Internet Boyfriend)
(Internet Boyfriend coming through ...)
Yeah I have a bad attitude,
And what the fuck does that mean to you?
I let you in just for fun,
I let you in you're not the one,
When it comes to me he can't compete,
I'm fresh to death,
And my shit will take you there,
I let you in you're not the one,

You're face pops up in these places,
Everywhere I go,
How do I get away from you?
How do I let go?
You're face pops up in these places,
Everywhere I go,
How do I get away from you?
How do I let go?

Swept away again,
I thought I had escaped you this time,
Lost control again,
These memories take hold of my mind,

You sat on my lap and called me Papi,
I did whatever,
I did whatever to make you happy,
Hold my hand but not to tight,
You pull on my fur I'm ready to fight,
Can we go out all night?
It feels so wrong don't tell me it's right,

You're face pops up in these places,
Everywhere I go,
How do I get away from you?
How do I let go?
You're face pops up in these places,
Everywhere I go,
How do I get away from you?
How do I let go?

Swept away again,
I thought I had escaped you this time,
Lost control again,
These memories take hold of my mind,

Fuck,
You were the one I wanted,
Thought you were the one I needed,
Fuck,
You were the one I wanted,
Thought you were the one I needed,
Fuck,
You were the one I wanted,
Now I think you're just conceited,

Fuck,
You were the one I wanted,
They left,
I can't believe it,
Fuck,
You were the one I wanted,
Now I think you're just conceited,
Fuck,
You were the one I wanted,
They left,
I can't believe it,
I can't believe it,

Swept away again,
I thought I had escaped you this time,
Lost control again,
These memories take hold of my mind,
Track Name: Date Nite
Crazy,
She don't know how to act,
But lately,
I keep coming back,
Don't know why,
Can't stay away,
Yeah I should,
Leave for good today,

Cause it's like every single date night,
Nothing seems to go right,
Buy you drinks lose sight,
Of things you did on past nights,
Things you did on past nights,
Heartbreak,
Our fights,
I don't want to see you cry,
Now it's over goodbye,

Took her out for date night,
Things were cool, alright,
But she had rage in her life,
From things I did on past nights,
Things I did on past nights,
Other chicks,
Black lights,
Sorry you can't heal right,
Now it's over goodbye,

Date night,
Date night,
Now it's over goodbye,

Too much,
Can't get it right,
Yeah I think,
She kinda likes to fight,
It's so hard,
To get along,
When she acts like,
She's never wrong,

Cause it's like every single date night,
Nothing seems to go right,
Buy you drinks lose sight,
Of things you did on past nights,
Things you did on past nights,
Heartbreak,
Our fights,
I don't want to see you cry,
Now it's over goodbye,

Took her out for date night,
Things were cool, alright,
But she had rage in her life,
From things I did on past nights,
Things I did on past nights,
Other chicks,
Black lights,
Sorry you can't heal right,
Now it's over goodbye,

Date night,
Date night,
Now it's over goodbye,

Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Aah,
Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Aah,

Heavy stardust in your eyes,
Earth a fallen enterprise,
Can't feel at home,
Can't breathe the air,
And we can't afford to leave,

Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Aah,
Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Ah ah oh oo-oh,
Aah,
