Track Name: Tonight I'm Young
It’s time to live a vision, fate is daring me to play its game
Heart of fury burning in my chest, passion fuels the flame
Like I’ve waited forever for now, mad urgency is driving me
Ideals are my roadmap, adrenaline my gasoline
I reach until I have to leap

Tonight I’m young, tonight I’m free
Tonight I become what I wanna be
Tonight I drink everything I need
To quench the desire of my dreams
Tonight I touch, tonight I love
Tonight I run, tonight I become
Tonight I become, tonight I’m young

Surging and dancing with my friends, we can conquer the world
Love and all our lust in unison, sea of boys and girls
Bobbing in the waves of music, beat synchronizing our souls
Truth singing harmony and boldness screaming every note
I know this’ll never get old

Tonight I’m young, tonight I’m free
Tonight I become what I wanna be
Tonight I drink everything I need
To quench the desire of my dreams
Tonight I touch, tonight I love
Tonight I run, tonight I become
Tonight I become, tonight I’m young

Blazing bright future, strong and new alive, stay young inside
And let my fear disappear into a heart that’s open wide
Tonight I open mine, I open my heart wide
Tonight I open mine, tonight, tonight, tonight

Tonight I’m young, tonight I’m free
Tonight I become what I wanna be
Tonight I drink everything I need
To quench the desire of my dreams
Tonight I touch, tonight I love
Tonight I run, tonight I become
Tonight I become, tonight I’m young
Track Name: The Night's Heart
Seduced by the dance of the moon’s rippled light
A tango with the black water shine, entwined
I bare my soul on the wind to fly
I bare my skin to the air tonight

I breathe the dark, I’m the night’s heart
As I run across soft sand
I catch the breeze, spirit, to the sea
Through sky and stars, I'm the night's heart
I dive down toward the deep
Where tall arching waves swallow me

Entranced in rhythm with the waves steady break
Caressed in their white frothy wake, I play
I dare the sharks, I’m mermaid tonight
Then sail ashore on the last high tide

I breathe the dark, I’m the night’s heart
As I run across soft sand
I catch the breeze, spirit, to the sea
Through sky and stars, I'm the night's heart
I dive down toward the deep
Where tall arching waves swallow me

Drying out asleep in island dolphin dreams
I wake before the sun or anyone sees
I breathe

I breathe the dark, I’m the night’s heart
As I run across soft sand
I catch the breeze, spirit, to the sea
Through sky and stars, I'm the night's heart
I dive down toward the deep
Where tall arching waves swallow me
Track Name: I Don't Know Where You Are
I’ve been searching forever for the heart to my heart
I’ve been walking a lifetime just to find where to start
Beat by storms, over oceans, ‘cross deserts and dirt
I’ve reached the end of the Earth .. and

I still don’t know, I don’t know where you are
I’ve scoured the mountains, every place, high and far
I couldn’t find you on any of the seven seas
And you’ve never lain next to me
Oh no, I don’t know where you are
No no, I don’t know where you are

I’ve got your picture tattooed to my dreams and my soul
I keep looking and longing, riding out my last hope
Through the tears, torn by doubting, taunted by near miss
I’ve reached the end of my wits .. and

I still don’t know, I don’t know where you are
I’ve scoured the mountains, every place, high and far
I couldn’t find you on any of the seven seas
And you’ve never lain next to me
Oh no, I don’t know where you are
No no, I don’t know where you are

I can feel you, I know you’re somewhere
Can you draw me a map or send up a flare
Give a clear sign, leave a mark on your trail
Call me on the wind and I’ll be there
I’ll be there, I’ll be there

I still don’t know, I don’t know where you are
I’ve scoured the mountains, every place, high and far
I couldn’t find you on any of the seven seas
And you’ve never lain next to me
Oh no, I don’t know where you are
No no, I don’t know where you are
No no, I don’t know where you are
Track Name: Kill With Just A Kiss
I make you believe what I want you to believe
I’m a master in this game of deceit
You can’t see through all the things I show you
I’m always faster, one step ahead of the truth

I’ve got deceptions, I’ve got tricks
When I seduce you there could be poison on my lips
I’m planning bad things while I give you bliss
I get you close where I can kill with just a kiss

I got your future in the crosshairs of my gun
I’m the marksman in this hunt I call fun
I’m sweet and smooth but that’s just bait to lure you
You easy target, you’re caught, nothing you can do

I’ve got deceptions, I’ve got tricks
When I seduce you there could be poison on my lips
I’m planning bad things while I give you bliss
I get you close where I can kill with just a kiss

Hiding my wicked behind this pretty face
You’ll think my acid’s got a honey taste
As you burn, you’ll think it’s soothing and cool
I turn your smart into fool

I’ve got deceptions, I’ve got tricks
When I seduce you there could be poison on my lips
I’m planning bad things while I give you bliss
I get you close where I can kill with just a kiss

I’ve got deceptions, I’ve got tricks
When I seduce you there could be poison on my lips
I’m planning bad things while I give you bliss
I get you close where I can kill with just a kiss

I’ve got deceptions, I’ve got tricks
When I seduce you there could be poison on my lips
I’m planning bad things while I give you bliss
I get you close where I can kill with just a kiss
Track Name: Pain Is A Magnet
Love should not cut, it’s not a razor
Love shouldn’t scrape, it’s not sandpaper
But this love’s not right, our spirits bleed and cry
Friends tell me to leave but when I try
Something pulls me hard back to his side

It’s pain, it’s a magnet
I’m attracted to the badness
Drawn to the wrong, to tears and ache
Pain's a magnet with no escape
Its pull overwhelms me
Every time, nothing helps me
Dragging me fast, it's twisted physics
Pain is a magnet I can’t resist

It’s got the strength it needs to hold me
Tows me around, yeah it controls me
Cause when it’s close my energy is drained
I try to fight but it’s in vain
It’s a powerful force I can’t break

It’s pain, it’s a magnet
I’m attracted to the badness
Drawn to the wrong, to tears and ache
Pain's a magnet with no escape
Its pull overwhelms me
Every time, nothing helps me
Dragging me fast, it's twisted physics
Pain is a magnet I can’t resist

The magnet needs metal, my heart of steel
I need the shock, bad boy’s electric field
It jolts me awake, it’s our game, I can’t change
It’s ingrained, it’s what I crave, it’s pain

It’s pain, it’s a magnet
I’m attracted to the badness
Drawn to the wrong, to tears and ache
Pain's a magnet with no escape
Its pull overwhelms me
Every time, nothing helps me
Dragging me fast, it's twisted physics
Pain is a magnet I can’t resist

I can’t resist
I can’t resist
I can’t resist
Track Name: Built To Run
Sky doesn’t like me to hide inside
It’s like a crime to cage the way I shine
I tried your life, my spirit almost died confined
My heartbeat craves to race, I can’t stay and waste my prime

I’m built to run, built to run
A fiery hot shooting sun
Strapped to a raging heart
Jet lit for a blazing start
Running stop signs with a surge and a glide
I’m in overdrive
I’m built to run, built to run, yeah

Cheetahs see me, covet my design
They eye my lines, survey the way I stride
I rise divine, my veins swelling with bright red life
My body wearing speed, a glistening streak of light

I’m built to run, built to run
A fiery hot shooting sun
Strapped to a raging heart
Jet lit for a blazing start
Running stop signs with a surge and a glide
I’m in overdrive
I’m built to run, built to run, yeah

I’m built to run, built to run
A fiery hot shooting sun
Strapped to a raging heart
Jet lit for a blazing start
Running stop signs with a surge and a glide
I’m in overdrive
I’m built to run, built to run, yeah
Track Name: Never Goin' Back To The Gravity
Playing platinum drums on a crystal moon
Air so thin every beat bounces you high
In a galaxy without time
Where every song you sing becomes real life
Touching horizons of endless possibility
Constant excitement within tranquility

Such a place, exotic and wild
Imagination real just like a child
Smooth and free, lucid dreaming
I’m never going back to reality
Never going back to the gravity
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Dancing on space dust, surfing the vacuum
Floating in nothing but still so alive
In heaven on the big bang
I bathe in healing warm celestial light
Touching horizons of endless possibility
Constant excitement within tranquility

Such a place, exotic and wild
Imagination real just like a child
Smooth and free, lucid dreaming
I’m never going back to reality
Never going back to the gravity
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Insane, crazy, outside the lines
Ooo-ooo
Its beauty will seduce you out of your mind

Such a place, exotic and wild
Imagination real just like a child
Smooth and free, lucid dreaming
I’m never going back to reality
Never going back to the gravity
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Track Name: You're A Stunner
Stylish and strong, stamina, speed
You‘ve got it all, you’re a beauty, you’re a beast
Weapons that sting like a scorpion bee
Your venom, your abs, I can’t let you close to me
No, no, no, oh

You’re a stunner, you’re a stunner
Got my number, got me running
You’re a hunter, I’m the hunted
You keep coming, got me stumbling
You go longer when I waiver
You get stronger when I’m fading
I’m the hunted, you’re the hunter
You got my number, you’re a stunner
Oh yeah

Animal instinct, attraction and tease
You bring me down off my high horse to my knees
Your touch is like lightning electricity
You taser, you shock, you don’t show me no mercy
No, no, no, oh

You’re a stunner, you’re a stunner
Got my number, got me running
You’re a hunter, I’m the hunted
You keep coming, got me stumbling
You go longer when I waiver
You get stronger when I’m fading
I’m the hunted, you’re the hunter
You got my number, you’re a stunner
Oh yeah

You’re a stunner, you’re a stunner
Got my number, got me running
You’re a hunter, I’m the hunted
You keep coming, got me stumbling
You go longer when I waiver
You get stronger when I’m fading
I’m the hunted, you’re the hunter
You got my number, you’re a stunner
Oh yeah
Track Name: Bad Stuff
Voodoo scent, a moaning wind
Vampires waking, smell of sin
Whiffs of greed and lust mask inhibition
Dark and sweet premonition

Bad stuff blowing toward me
Blood in the water, black fog on the sea
On my knees, yeah, twisted and teased
Bad stuff blowing toward me

Chaos chants seductive spells
In his savory kiss I’ll melt
Lips, red pepper hot, spice my emptiness
Makes the flame taste delicious

Bad stuff blowing toward me
Blood in the water, black fog on the sea
On my knees, yeah, twisted and teased
Bad stuff blowing toward me

On the horizon lightning throws fire
Good sense is blinded, storm rains desire
Oh, the apocalypse rides on thunder claps
Panic, mayhem, decadence, they laugh

La la la, ooh, it’s not right
All the angels leave tonight

Bad stuff blowing toward me
Blood in the water, black fog on the sea
On my knees, it’s not right, twisted and teased
All the angels leave tonight

Bad stuff blowing toward me
Blood in the water, black fog on the sea
On my knees, yeah, twisted and teased
Bad stuff blowing toward me
