Next of Kin

Verse 1

On the borders of brothers we walk in the name of

These states united in their constant state of sorrow, hunger and obsession

My world and Mother, Earth and Father, what has happened to our sense of compassion?

C’mon and march together, not against your foe

The fallen kin who would rather kill than lend a hand to you

My world and Mother, Earth and Father, what has happened to our sense of compassion?

Mayans

Verse 1

Under a vibrant burning sun, sacrificing flesh and blood for salvation

We are living by some sacred determination we will answer to a certain damnation

Pre-Chorus

Ruled by calendars that you and I created

Let the tides roll in and make us rise the pyramid

Chorus

Humble yourself to the teachings of the ancients

We give everything we have to build our nation

Upon the bones of innocent, we build our foundation

Tumbling toward a goal to save civilization

Verse 2

It’s just a coward’s way of keeping conception

Of art and righteous forgiveness and fulfillment

Though we’re lost without some type of former discipline

We don’t have to sacrifice our only children

Pre-Chorus

Ruled by calendars that you and I created

Let the stars roll in and make us rise the pyramid

Chorus

Humble yourself to the teachings of the ancients

We give everything we have to build our nation

Upon the bones of innocent, we build our foundation

Tumbling toward a goal to save civilization

(Solo)

Pre-Chorus

Ruled by calendars that you and I created

Let the skies roll in and make us rise the pyramid

Chorus

Humble yourself to the teachings of the ancients

We give everything we have to build our nation

Upon the bones of innocent, we build our foundation

Tumbling toward a goal to save civilization

Promise

Verse 1

I stepped outside and felt the sun hit my face

And my tears they fell like rain

Six hours ago I was displaced, I became 

Dead among living, a half-alive disgrace

Chorus

So this I swear

I’ll do justice to my life if I survive tonight

God strike me down

If I ever break this promise I make tonight, tonight

Verse 2

Twelve hours ago, I stepped outside, I was promised

I would die if I resisted

I told my heart and I told my mind the body could take it

That we would reconnect in no time

Pre-Chorus

So I cross my heart 

And I swear I’ll make it out alive tonight – (Ooooooooo)

God take me now

If I ever break this promise I make tonight, tonight

(Solo/Interlude)

Verse 3

You let me go, and now I’m strong enough to fight, 

‘Cause I promised tonight was the last time

Some years ago, I learned the gravity of hate

And found atonement the day that I forgave

Chorus

So this I swear, in your memory I’ll thrive tonight, tonight – (Ooooooooo)

God take me now, if I ever break this promise I make tonight, tonight

God strike me down, if I ever break this promise I make tonight, tonight

Bad Seed

Verse 1

Now when’s the last time anybody told you kid you’re a bad seed?

I guess your Mama never thought to scold you, poor little black sheep

Here he comes to spread the germination

We all got demons but yours are a bitch, babe – boy you’re a bad seed

Pre-Chorus

You can hate what these bad ones propagate

Humble sprouts, they’re harmless when you really think about it

(Solo)

Verse 2

Theirs is a testimony to survival, good little bad seeds

It’s inevitable, they’re gonna grow – good little bad seeds

Pre-Chorus

Take that fruit, soak it down to the root

Let it grow strong in your garden of good seeds before

The harvest comes and takes all of ‘em

Chorus

Don’t you know, all good seeds will grow

When you got one bad seed you got a million

Intro/Chorus Reprise

My feelings for you have exceeded expectations 

And left me hopelessly…

My dear friend, there’s something I’ve been 

Meaning to tell you for some time

For the past few months, you’ve nourished my

Aching heart and mended my…

Pre-Chorus

I said goodnight without your name

Without breaking what we share today

The part you play in the healing of my soul

And my mind I pray…

Bonnie & Clyde

Verse 1

Built just like a truck, but so soft like a woman

Sting just like a wasp, Mr. cold blood chameleon

Take all of the time you need to gain feeling

Back into your spine while your cold heart is bleeding

Pre-Chorus

Wind back the clock, can’t you darn the hole in these socks

That you knocked off… off of my paws

Chorus

You and I like Bonnie and Clyde will be legend before long

So get yourself out before it’s gone

You may be the best that a girl can get although it’s wrong

So get the hell out before you’re gone

Verse 2

I came across the note you left on my pillow

What did you expect when I flew through your window?

You asked for it all so I gave it up to you

I’m guilty as charged - point the finger now, do you?

Pre-Chorus

Wind back the clock, can’t you darn the hole in these socks

That you knocked off… off of my paws

Chorus

You and I like Bonnie and Clyde will be legend before long

So get yourself out before it’s gone

You may be the best that a girl can get although it’s wrong

So get the hell out before you’re gone

Get Up!

Dream like the requiem you are til it sounds like a warning

Blind to the sun with your curtains blocking out that warm Pacific light

Oh, you can move

Into the blue

Pache

Verse 1

Right beyond the gentle wave

Lies the kind of place we crave

Holy divers grab your boat

We are bound for Golden Gates

In this place all the liberties

You sought for so long

Grow like wildfire for the ones

Seeking harmony in this city

Chorus

Pache (“Peace”)

A se va (“will be”)

Su familia (“your family”)

Verse 2

Strong enough to lend a hand

Strange (/strong) enough to understand

We are more than fellow man

We’re made from the same

Chorus

Planets

Molecular formula

Matter and elements

Verse 2

Here our banners stand for us

As the pillars we all trust

In the land beneath our wave

Tiny city by the Bay

(Interlude) 

Chorus (2x/Reprise)

Pache (“Peace”)

A se va (“will be”)

Su familia (“your family”)
