Track Name: Adventure Island (feat. Soap Box Duo)
You’ve been in the dark
let me shed some light on our situation
I have a found a map
hidden in the dirt tell me what you’re thinking
This is our big chance
let us set sail to adventure island
no GPS
just a compass that is barely working

Feel the sunlight
beat upon our skin
we’re ready to begin
Bring the food
I’ll bring the fun
We won’t tell anyone

Bring only what you need
I don’t when we will be back again
We’re heading overseas
I’m glad you’re with me
I don’t know how this will end

Feel the sunlight
beat upon our skin
we’re ready to begin
Bring the food
I’ll bring the fun
We won’t tell anyone

We’ve been searching this beach for months
X marks the spot, X marks the spot
We’ve been digging around a lot
X marks the spot, X marks the spot
(X2)

Feel the sunlight
beat upon our skin
we’re ready to begin
Bring the food
I’ll bring the fun
We won’t tell anyone
Track Name: Comeback Kids (feat. Shiv Shanks)
They’re coming back for more
They couldn’t read between the lines
Pacing back and fourth
Come on and and just make up your mind

They come back back back around, yeah
I’m going to be there when they fall
They come back back back around, yeah
Don’t come around here anymore

They’re looking for a fight
well it’s a swing and it’s a miss
I should have clarified
that I’m better than you at this

They come back back back around, yeah
I’m going to be there when they fall
They come back back back around, yeah
Don’t come around here anymore

We are comeback kids
and we have claimed this town
this is where we were born
this is where we get down
We are united as one
together we stand proud
so make no mistake
This is a bond you cannot break

You don’t know when to quit
Haven’t you bled enough by now
I’d rather let you live
This is your last chance to get out

They come back back back around, yeah
I’m going to be there when they fall
They come back back back around, yeah
Don’t come around here anymore

We are comeback kids

Track Name: Best Friends (feat. The Skips)
I was wearing camouflage
so I’d blend in like an iguana
We were playing hide and go seek
count to ten and come find me
I can’t wait to see you again

We were walking in the mall
Your legs were tired (weren’t they always)
I said hey maybe we should go
but you just kept walking on
I can’t wait to see you again

The telephone’s ringing my friend’s are calling
They must want to hang out (don’t we always)
and so we go out to the pool
having fun is our only ruie
I can’t wait to see you again
I can’t wait to see you again
Track Name: Tough Times (feat. Form 10)
You are the fire and I am the ash
I am the thief and you are the cash, yeah
You are the brick and I am the bone
I am the stick and you are the stone

Oh these are tough times, I know
Don’t open your eyes, stay close
Oh these are tough times, I know
Don’t open your eyes, keep them closed

You are the paper and I am the glue
I am the pavement and you are the shoe
You are the vision and I am the blur
I am the sickness and you are the cure, alright

Oh these are tough times, I know
Don’t open your eyes, stay close
Oh these are tough times, I know
Don’t open your eyes, keep them closed

What are we all still doing here
We have to fight if we want change
They say the grass is greener on the other side
but all that I see is black and grey
What are we all still doing here
We have to fight if we want change
They say the grass is greener on the other side
but all that I see is black and grey

Track Name: On My Own (feat. Soft Violence)
I never thought that I’d be in this situation
I never thought that I’d be in this predicament
I’ve always been glad that I had you here by my side
I never thought about you ever saying goodbye

on my own, it’s time for me to be
on my own, you had to set me free
on my own, it’s a calamity
on my own

This ain’t no fairy tale
It ain’t no mystery
I know that you won’t fail
You just have to believe
and now you’re on your own
now that you don’t need me
You’re on your way to gold
You’re a celebrity

I never thought that I’d be in this situation
I never thought that I’d be in this predicament
I’ve always been glad that I had you here by my side
I never thought about you ever saying goodbye

on my own, it’s time for me to be
on my own, you had to set me free
on my own, it’s a calamity
on my own

This ain’t no fairy tale
It ain’t no mystery
I know that you won’t fail
You just have to believe
and now you’re on your own
now that you don’t need me
You’re on your way to gold
You’re a celebrity

on my own, it’s time for me to be
on my own, you had to set me free
on my own, it’s a calamity
on my own, I never thought I’d be
on my own, it’s time for me to be
on my own, you had to set me free
on my own, it’s a calamity
on my own

Track Name: Black Smoke (feat. Boosh)
Evolution revolution we all want a fair solution
However pollution isn’t something I’d take
Ever growing population is destroying vegetation
Natural resources are eliminating
Attitude in every person competion retribution
Why not make a resolution annually
Education explanation mindless talk evaporation
Brain is on vacation while my body can’t be
Chemicals by the bucket we don’t have a place to chuck it
Dump it in the ocean ‘cuz the sea life won’t mind
Black smoke from the big truck, driver is a little drunk
Driving down the highway trying to make it on time
Kaboom A-bomb, everybody stay calm
I’m sure the government has got it under control
Forfeit I surrender, a worthy contender
You’ve gone and made the military commander proud

love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is black smoke
love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air but the air
but the love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is black smoke
love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is polluted

Eyes glued to the television without any supervision
No wonder the kids are going crazy these days
Garbage is accumulating, never-ending unforgiving
Put it in a rocket-ship and send it to space
Music can be therapeutic above all it’s cinematic
I dare you to try and watch a movie without it
Drug addiction, prostitution found in every institution
It’s impossible for the police to get a handle on it
Criminals doing time, paparazzi doing fine
Taking private photos of rich and famous
Animals strike a pose entertain the people
Put them in a petting zoo and call them dangerous
Grizzly bear, everybody stop and stare
He’s a vegetarian so I’m sure you’re in the clear
Camouflage virtually invisible
Try to find me and you won’t that’s the principle

love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is black smoke
love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air but the air
but the love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is black smoke
love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is polluted

I take a quick puff dealing with all this thick stuff
You all know what's going on in the hood so shut up
You're blinded to the fact, that good intentions are just that
and if you don't know how to help then learn and just sit back
Misrespect disrespect don't insult my intellect
anyone can learn anything if you've got the internet, I promise
Times are too real to be modest
You need to look deep inside you and be honest
Black smoke no explanation for all this

love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is black smoke
love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air but the air
but the love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is black smoke
love is in air but the air is polluted
love is in air but the air is polluted
Track Name: Impatient (feat. Letters From Pluto)
I'm coming for you
No matter where you hide I will find you
it'd better be soon
I’m impatient

Don’t try to resist
You’ll only make it worse in the long run
If you want to exist
I would listen, yeah

I won’t surrender
I won’t comply
You’ve got me running around like the bad guy
I’m not the villain
Just let me live my life
Oh Oh Oh You’ve got to let me go
Oh Oh Oh You’ve got to let me go
Oh Oh Oh Just let me live my life

I’m closing in
You know you were doomed from the beginning
I’m bringing you in
I’m efficient

I won’t surrender
I won’t comply
You’ve got me running around like the bad guy
I’m not the villain
Just let me live my life
Oh Oh Oh You’ve got to let me go
Oh Oh Oh You’ve got to let me go
Oh Oh Oh Just let me live my life

We used to get along so nicely
We used to sing songs in the backseat
What went wrong is a mystery
What transpired into tragedy

I won’t surrender
I won’t comply
You’ve got me running around like the bad guy
I’m not the villain
Just let me live my life
Oh Oh Oh You’ve got to let me go
Oh Oh Oh You’ve got to let me go
Oh Oh Oh Just let me live my life
Track Name: In The Woods (feat. West To Alaska)
Who am I?
Who are you?
What we supposed to do?
We are lost in the woods
I don’t know
What’s with this TV show in the woods

Under the light of the sliver of the moon
I saw a silhouette of a great bear
He gave me his spirit through a telepathic passage
and the thick fog mist rolled through the night air
We protect the forest and the balance of the universe
In the mind of an eagle we see the vast landscape traverse
Reverse the encroaching cancers until the neck tie burns
and we see the true answer

Compete for money
before the judge
Compete for shelter
and find a love
We’re watching you from the comfort of
our living room so don’t give up
on us, on you

Who am I?
Who are you?
What we supposed to do?
We are lost in the woods
I don’t know
What’s with this TV show in the woods

As I wipe the northern lights out of my eyes
I feel like an animal in disguise
Some self-prescribe a daily dose
of LED optic imaginary life
The rulers of TV land never break stride
Market fake reality in one hour time
Penetrate the aspects so you can't hide
Any real experience sold as promotion
contorted and hoarded in a digital fortress

Compete for money
before the judge
Compete for shelter
and find a love
We’re watching you from the comfort of
our living room so don’t give up
on us, on you

I’m gonna run away
I”m coming with you
I don’t care what they say
I do not blame you
I’m gonna run away
I”m coming with you
I don’t care what they say (what they say)

Compete for money
before the judge
Compete for shelter
and find a love
We’re watching you from the comfort of
our living room so don’t give up
on us, on you
on us, on you
