Track Name: Bee
She doesn't need to believe
in silly dreams like the teens
she knows they turn to screams.

She's had it rough. Had enough.
I don't suggest you test her cause she'll call your bluff.
She doesn't ask for much, she's always filling in time,
and just the thought of her touch,
I feel my temperature climb!

That's my girl! That's my girl! That's my world.
Can't wait to see her tonight! Tonight.

I've seen her glow at a show.
The only way to describe it is
I feel her feel the vibe.
That's how I know. Yeah, I know.
The only girl around that likes it fast and likes it slow.

She never needed a man. Don't even need me!
My only hope to make it right is leave her, "Bee!"
That's my girl. That's my girl. She's my world.
She's coming home right now.

You better believe she'll be speaking her mind
She listens to all my $hit when I need to unwind

That's my girl. That's my babe. She's my world.
She's on her way right now. Right Now.
Can't wait to see her tonight. Tonight.

She's seen me weak, knows my flaws,
She's seen me snap, and break the laws.
but when I needed an inch, she was there with a mile
Nothing seems to matter once I see her smile.

That's my girl. That's my babe. She's my world.
She's coming in right now.

That's my girl. That's my babe. That's my Bee.
Track Name: Blow Me Away
we live our lives within a breadth of time
we make the best of what we've got even if it not a lot
last night the wind was blowing cold, i felt a chill take hold
left me empty inside as I was buried in thought

we all make our own mistakes
even chances we didn't take
sometimes these lessons learned become who we are
since we're the ones who are left to live our lives with these scars

everything that we choose, some we win, some we lose
and what might be right for me may not be right for you,
i know the opposite is also true, so please don't think i'm blaming you
i really wish you wouldn't take offense to the things i say

so when that cold wind hit me yesterday
I knew there was nothing i could say, nothing i could do
the one who blew it must be me, because everything's all up to you

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

those cold winds keep coming around
they blow so cold, i shiver from the sound
last night they even brought me to my knees
only the thought of seeing your face again
kept me from the depths of its freeze

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

i'd give my life to be with you through time
cause without your touch, i'm really not much
and with those winds all around, i know my end is confound
since the cold from the emptiness drive me insane

i thought you'd be here with me everyday
now there is nothing i could do, nothing i could say
if the decision were left to me i'd ask
please come home today, just come home today
i need you here with me

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

those cold winds keep blowing through
they blow so cold, but what can i do
i can hear them blowing through the trees
if i knew you believed in me
it would keep me from the freeze
Track Name: I Don't Know & I Don't Care
InstruMENTAL
Track Name: Ride On
take some time, go for a ride
get into the rhythm
open your mind, open it wide
then take it to the moon
rules don't apply if you dare to defy
and take it to the limit
the longer you ride, the deeper inside
you'll get into the tune.

a journey for freedom
of thought is good reason
to light up this candle
c'mon get up and go
exercise imagination
feeling spacetime sensation
the best things in life
aren't really ever that complicated

ride on, we'll ride on
wanna see what's at the edge of forever?
just listen and the gravitational
pull transmits a picture
ride on
i'll do my best to lead you
where your mind senses its freedom
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
should you decide to take your own ride
choose any place or reason
and a true open mind
will often be blind to dogmatic baggage
experience heavenly blissful peace
or even hell if you like to scream

a journey for freedom
of thought is good reason
to be on your way
if you wanna get up and go
exercise imagination
feeling spacetime sensation
the best things in life
aren't really ever that complicated

ride on, just ride on
are you ready for your trip through forever?
i'll listen for your sound waves
wanna hear what else is out there
ride on
i'll do my best to read those signals
from your voyages of freedom
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
take some time, go for a ride
now you've got the rhythm
i see you've opened your mind,
opened it wide
how did you like neptune?
rules don't apply when we dare to defy
and take it to the limit
we long for the ride, exploring with pride
every single tune.

a journey for freedom
of thought is good reason
be out on our way
so let's get up and go
exercise imagination
feeling spacetime sensation
the best things in life
aren't really ever that complicated

ride on, we ride on
ever wonder why we trip through forever?
maybe cause we realize that
we don't have all the answers
ride on
i do my best to keep on riding
and experience new paths of freedom

Track Name: Peace of Mind for Today
PEACE OF MIND FOR TODAY

let it go
let it slide
i don't need to blow a fuse
or step across any line

i can walk away from your cue
i don't need to even the score
trouble's all around nobody needs any more
that's a fact you can't ignore
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
i don't mind
i'll get by
i don't need to get upset
or in some senseless fight

i don't need to add any fuel
or hang around to watch the fire
it's not easy keeping all this conflict away
i need some peace of mind for today
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
it's all right
it's okay
it's probably just a mistake
these happen everyday

gotta keep from losing my cool
let it pass if it's long overdue
i don't need to prove one single thing to you
i need some peace of mind for today
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Track Name: Hand It Over
"Time heals all pain," I recall somebody once told me.
I have myself to blame - accepting what they sold me.
Assistance cuts means taking back control and purpose.
They want me off my @ss - seek my own social service.
This first request begins with standard procedure
Reach for the sky, welcome to my first adventure.

THERE'S NO WAY AROUND IT - HURRY, HAND IT OVER.
I'M COLLECTING TAX DIRECTLY - FROM THE WELL-REFINED
TRY NOT TO LOOK SO "AGHAST" - LET'S GET THIS OVER!
TOO LATE TRYING TO MAKE ME CHANGE MY MIND!

Door to door in search of friends when I was younger
I learned how capable I am to feed my hunger
Life gets tough, it's up to me to make mine better.
A mental coat would fit me cozy like a sweater.
Last year my part-time job's cut - claimed I burden the nation
Now I'm private sector and I'm helping job creation.

I'M TIRED OF BEING CALLED THE BAD GUY, FUKCING HAND IT OVER.
I'M NOT COLD AND CALLOUS BUT LOOK IN THESE EYES
I HOPE YOU'RE NOT REFUSING HELP I NEED FOR MY FAMILY
THAT'S ALL I NEEDED TO HEAR, NOW YOU CAN SAY GOODBYE!!!!!

13 years of time invested in my education
14 schools I figured I'm an aberration
Finally came a time to stop making connections
Cause when they're gone they always felt just like rejections
I testify through time with drinks and medication
These bills are due I need some cash for compensation
Business that profits courts exempt them of their crimes,
NOW I'M IN BUSINESS AND I'LL TRADE YOUR DOLLARS FOR MY DIMES!!

WISE LAST SECOND DECISION TURNING EVERYTHING OVER
NOW I BET YOU'RE WONDERING ABOUT THAT PAIN INSIDE
I'LL LEVEL WITH YOU - OFF THE RECORD - NOW OUR TRANSACTION'S OVER
RELAX AND TAKE SOME SHOTS OF WHISKEY, IT WILL HEAL IN TIME!!!

Track Name: Keep On Raining

wash today down the drain

rain

keep on coming down
all day
oh yeah
i hope it keeps on raining

sound is comforting, easing my brain
getting out of my bed, such a strain
instead i think i'll remain
i love a rainy day
wash all the stains away

rain
keep on raining
rain
i love the rain
keep on coming down
all day
oh yeah
i hope it keeps on raining
until the stains wash away

Track Name: Mr. Bill
mr. bill, mr. bill!
why do they squash you?
and crush you? and mush you? and smash you?
and all you can say is, "oh no!"
why do you sit there and take it?
why don't you get them back and make them pay for smashing the dough?

mr. bill, mr. bill!
how many times, do you get killed?
don't let them smash you, or mash you, or bash you!
and don't forget...
AHHHHHH!
Track Name: Nothing Personal, But...
Sometimes I need to shout
to let my feelings out
when life leaves me in doubt.

Some find nowhere to blend
so hard to find a friend
figure "time to pretend!"

Play a BIG SHOT to an amateur lot so hard to get caught!
No one can tell, the game that you sell - I like how you spell!

Critiques you claim as light
don't really shine that bright
most seem to just incite.
So, let's see what you can do.
Can you play the kazoo?
I'll give you a nice review!

Listen BIG SHOT, I don't admire you a lot, or the lessons that you taught.
What made you come here? Did you have a bad year? Next time you should try beer!

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... "constructive critcism".. BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... "can't anybody take the heat?" BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... "I am BulgarianBeat, a very successful european promater" ...whatever the hell "promater" is!

I know you have the right
to say what you might
can't you be decent too?
Most learn that when they're six
A lesson learned that sticks
nobody likes you pricks!

C'mon BIG SHOT you're put on the spot, let's see what you got...
put up a song, show me I'm wrong or is it too difficult?

I hope someday you see
a cooler way to be
and you can be set free - in the mind, not the mouth!
Probably won't be too soon
probably won't make a tune
so safe and so immune!

C'mon BIG SHOT I put you on the spot let's see what you got!
Put up a song, don't need to be long, prove me wrong!

BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... "Freedom of speech man" BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH... "I have the right to say what I want" "Bulgarian Beat has the right to say what he wants about any song because after all I am a very successful music promater." I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT "PROMATER" IS!! WHATEVER!!!

I've wasted too much breath
you're probably all full of meth
that stuff can cause you death!
C'mon Mr. ?????
God knows you're not tone deaf
C'mon put up a song let's see what you can do!

So BIG SHOT I put YOU on the spot let's see what you got!
Put up a song, it don't need to be long and prove me wrong!
Can you hear me BIG SHOT? What the hell have you got? I'm putting you on the spot.
Let's see what you do. Can you play the kazoo??? I'll give you a nice review!

Oh, Bobby! You're getting so good on the kazoo! You played "Mary Had a Little Lamb" ... uh, VERY NICE! Don't worry about those couple of notes you missed in the middle, it could happen to anyone. Keep your head up young guy!
