Track Name: Cheetah On Drugs (feat. The Skips)
I’ve been running for weeks
All the people started watching for me out on the streets
I’ve been working my feet
they’ve been treating me like some sort of celebrity

run for your lives
there’s no time for having fun
I’ve been running for my life
since it was 1981
Hey! You might feel a burn
at the bottom of your thighs
but that won’t be a bother
‘cuz we’re running for our lives

I’ve been creating a buzz
this must be what it feels like to be a cheetah on drugs
I’ve been sweating it out
All the people want to know what I’m all about

run for your lives
there’s no time for having fun
I’ve been running for my life
since it was 1981
Hey! You might feel a burn
at the bottom of your thighs
but that won’t be a bother
‘cuz we’re running for our lives

I'm running
I'm running
I'm running
I can't stop
(X2)

I’ve been labelled a mess
I don’t care because there’s nobody that I must impress
I’ve been caring much less
and that’s okay because I wasn’t destined for success

run for your lives
there’s no time for having fun
I’ve been running for my life
since it was 1981
Hey! You might feel a burn
at the bottom of your thighs
but that won’t be a bother
‘cuz we’re running for our lives

I'm running
I'm running
I'm running
I can't stop
(X4)
Track Name: Hot Lava (feat. White Lightning)
Do you remember when the floor was lava
only the sofa was safe to travel

When we were young we were made of steel
Nobody told us how we should feel
Imagination was running wild
All the adults were in such denial

Take me back home
(X2)

It was with you when I felt on fire
A burning sensation is a strange desire
We talked about nothing like it meant everything
Oh what a pleasure it was to hear you sing

Take me back home
(X2)

Do remember when the floor was lava
only the sofa was safe to travel
we took out the cushions and built a palace
that was the day when we found what love was

Take me back home
(X4)
Track Name: In The Future (feat. Two Bears North)
Boy: Hey Uncle
Uncle: Yes?
Boy: Can you tell me about the future?
Uncle: Sure I can, what about it?
Boy: Well, umm what’s it going to be like?
Uncle: Ah see well I’m not a time traveller but I would imagine that it might go something like this

In the future there will be so much technology
everywhere we go will be like living in japan
but we won’t have flying cars we’ll have jetpacks
strap it to your back like a backpack never going back jack
if you wanna have friends, you’re gunna have to buy a jetpack
because you’ll never be able to make friends if you don’t have a jetpack

In the future there will be a big bang
and everybody will gather around wondering what they heard
but you’ll never understand until you see it
it will become a big government secret
and the conspiracy theories will start floating around
the truth will never be found
Unfortunately the truth will never be found but at least you have a jetpack

There will be love
There will be hate
The sun will rise
The moon will fade
In one hundred years
This will all be changed
We’ll be in the clouds
Watching everything

Boy: Hey Uncle can you tell me more about the future
Uncle: Umm, well yeah of course, what about it?
Boy: Umm are there going to aliens and robots? or is it going to be like the end of the world?
Uncle: ha no it’s not going to be the end of the world but there might be aliens and robots

In the future we will finally find proof
of aliens existing on mars
they all had green skin and their body shape was really thin
just like the ones you’ve seen on x-files
and they say you never learn anything from watching the TV
Moulder was right if only Skully would believe but she never did
(Boy: What’s X-files?) Nevermind kid

In the future there will be robots with emotions
robots in the sky and robots in the ocean
they’ll be human looking robots and then robot looking humans
already the future sounds like it’s going to be confusing
but never fear my dear because luckily we won’t be here
we will only live 100 years MAX
unless scientist create some kind of immortality drink
(oh yeah, good point)

There will be love
There will be hate
The sun will rise
The moon will fade
In one hundred years
This will all be changed
We’ll be in the clouds
Watching everything

There will be love

In the future (repeat)
