Track Name: System Overload
Tonight we’re gonna go till systems overload
We push the envelope until we lose control

I feel a surge out on this floor in here tonight no fail safe mode
You say relax I cant do that
I cant hold back this urge in me hot on your track emergency
Inputs feedback well chain react

Because we like the thrill of the juice love the power of abuse
Tonight were gonna light the fuse and push the boundaries all the way

To system overload when feelings start to bloooow
Its system overload were gonna go all the way
Its system overload tonight were gonna go all the way

I don’t get disturbe over just anybody
You touched a nerve and then you shocked my logic
Now I can’t wait until rock that body all night
I cant hold back this urge in me hot on your track emergency
Inputs feedback well chain react

Because tonight its thrilling with you Love is power and well use it
Tonight were gonna light the fuse and push the boundaries all the way

Till systems overload when feelings start to bloooow
Its system overload were gonna go all the way
To system overload feeling bout to blow
Its system overload tonight well go all the way

Were gonna go tonight til systems overload
when the gain starts clipping push the envelope
we gonna get down until we meltdown
let it go let it go let it (till it) breakdown

BG
Takes you all the way reaching for that inner space
Pressure starts to fade meltdown is the final phase
Takes you all the way reaching for that inner space
Pressure starts to fade tonight were going all the way
Track Name: Diabolical Love
Seems like the moon never sets she got my whole world upset
She conjures dreams in my head she devils playground I swear
She's Diabolical So Diabolical 2X

Her trap is set by looking at you kiss of the doomed
Dressed innocently so taboo howl at the moon
I took a sippy drink and I was consumed before I knew
She put that voodoo on me once again
that hoodoo voodoo on me once again
CH
Diabolical Love heavens on the cusp
Shes an evil woman But I just can't get enough 2X

Her smiles is lightning striking one glance she hypnotizes
Sparks fly from her fingers and she knows all my vices
Just like the venus fly trap you sense theres nothing to fear
She leaves her victims crying show me no mercy I swear

She's Diabolical So Diabolical 2X
Diabolical Love heavens on the cusp
She's an evil woman But I just can't get enough 2X

She got heebee jeebee rhythm she put heebee jeebee in 'em
She got heebee jeebee rhythm she use heebee jeebee venom

She Got me under her thumb dazed and confused twisted and screwed
So Convincing when she's smiling at you lying the truth
Tasted like guilty pleasure one hundred proof and before I knew
She put that voodoo on me once again
She put that voodoo on me once again

She's Diabolical So Diabolical 2X
Diabolical Love heavens on the cusp
She's an evil woman But I just can't get enough
Track Name: No Fear of Flying
Last night u came with me U cured my fear of heights
Reality’s illusion when dreams are taking flight
You can’t go where angels call and be afraid to fall
If we throw cautions to the wind we could have it all

Life could be ecstacy / Flying up here with me / You and me endlessly

Chorus
Where there’s no safety nets / tonight I’m fearless
No parachute on my back yeah / we got no fear of flying
You got me feeling like an aeroplane love will be the capta-i-ain
Falling feels like gliding / So there’s no fear of flying

Afraid of letting go, afraid to lose control
Take a leap of faith with and me risk everything you know
Just trust and you will find gravity will be denied
If U set the love that’s in you free and I’ll keep you satisfied

Life could be ecstacy / Flying up here with me / you and me endlessly

Chorus
Where there’s no safety nets / tonight I’m fearless
No parachute on my back yeah / And theres no fear of flying
You got me Feel like an aeroplane / love will be the capta-i-ain
Falling feels just like gliding - So there’s no fear of flying

Im looking for the makes me feel weak
Im looking for the knocks me off my feet
Im looking for the skyhigh gliding
To take away my fear of Flying
Im looking for my sweet G6
Im looking for the mile high bliss
Im looking for the free falling gliding
Track Name: Tug O War
We're Breaking up caught in a bind that’s our scenario
Steady pressure squeezing tight we get so emotional
We’re losing grip we’re bound and tethered bout to break the line
If looks could kill we’d die together – and give an eye for eye

you say its day I say its night we just cant agree anymore
u say its wrong i say its right keep getting in this tug of war

come on let me in your corner and take off your body armor
maybe we should join our forces our love is like a tug of war
You know we don’t need defenses The pain in love is often senseless
U know we should join our forces and end this tug of war

U Go in on me I take the blows the hitting way too low
Gets hand to hand it’s toe to toe when we settle up the score
We’re Drawing lines we never compromise
The innocent caught in the middle / just have to pick a side

you say its day I say its night we just cant agree anymore
u say its wrong i say its right keep living in this tug of war

come on let me in your corner and take off your body armor
maybe if we join our forces our love is like a tug of war
You know we don’t need defenses The pain in love is often senseless
U know we should join our forces and end this tug of war

Bdg

Maybe if we pull in the same direction
We could put our mind on one objective
Theres no greater force than the force of a love connection

Tug o war what we fighting for
Tug o war what we fighting for
Track Name: The Toast (to the Good Life)
It seems like lately I been learning how
To do with less now I even learned to do without
I count my blessings and I’m devil may care with doubt
I reach out and touch faith
Why you asking me if I believe sometimes
I just need somebody to believe in me
So take a moment be thankful and breathe

So Here's a toast to the Goodlife
Good Life –the best day of your life
Good Life – no better time to be alive
You know you gotta make the best of everything you got
So here's a toast to the Good Life the goo good good

Looks like I’ll have to get crazy if I’m gonna survive
Sometimes your sanity make you wish youd lose your mind
Soul searching for the love devine reach up touch & faith
Heaven know whats on the other side
Get thru the worst to get to the best of times
And live each moment like the last day of life

So Here's a toast to the Goodlife
Good Life –the best day of your life, live today it's the
Good Life – no better time to be alive
You know you gotta make the best of everything you got
So here's a toast to the Good Life the goo good good

And if you’re listening you know the best things in life are free
And if you’re listening say I don’t have to feel guilty
Here tonite …….
Track Name: My Prayer (Temple of Soul)
I keep searching for an oasis we're gonna get there
before they drop the bomb on us
I'd been searching for a pot of gold then i found the one
now love will carry us
I cant tell you every dream is gonna fulfill each night i hit my knees i lay my dreams down in a wishing well
This is my prayer

In the temple of soul they'll keep shining a light and our love will last from birth to afterlife
Live as long as you want never want as long as you live and i'll be with you still
This is my prayer my prayer
Oh Oh

If you ever send an SOS you'll know i'm listening cuz i'll be there on the rush
For every rainbow and every tear whenever problems come i'll bring a smile to share
The path looks uncertain seems we're always running uphill
Each night i hit my knees i lay my dreams down in a wishing well
This is my Prayer

In the temple of soul they'll keep shining a light and our love will last from birth to afterlife
Live as long as you want never want as long as you live in my heart you will
This is my prayer my prayer
For every rainbow and every tear another another blessing will find you my dear
For every problem a shelter from fear and ill be with you
This is my Prayer
Track Name: Your Love's a Motha
How did you step right out of my dreams get into my head
How did you sneak inside my fantasy I been looking for you there
I guess I underestimated the things I never knew
Reality’s so overrated when dreams start coming true

Ohh leave on the lights this time to see how you’re taking my mind

Oh You got me seeing sound / got me feeling colors
my senses turned around / Your love is a mother
u got my world upside and down / baby youre a stunner
In your arms like senssurround Your love is a mo oooo ther

Ya love’s A Mother ungh ungh - ungh ungh A Mother ungh ungh – ungh ungh
Baby Its a Mother ungh ungh ungh ungh

Please forgive my language / u got me tongue tied at every word
Lips and drunken innocence / leads to hard love and four letter verbs
I I I I I’m in a daze in a haze im so confused
Reality’s so over rated when dreams are coming true

Ooh maybe im hallucinating cuz I’m halfway to loving you crazy

Ah You got me seeing sound / got me feeling colors
my senses turned around / Your love is a mother
u got my world upside and down / baby you’re a stunner
drowning in your wonder
In your arms like senssurround Your love is a mo oooo ther

Ya love’s A Mother ungh ungh - ungh ungh
A Mother ungh ungh – ungh ungh
Mother ungh ungh ungh ungh ungh ungh ungh ungh
It a Mother ungh ungh ungh ungh

Ohh maybe hallucinating cuz im 1/2 way to loving you crazy
Track Name: The Sky (is no limit)
Were on a mission every day we got survival in our DNA
Defying logic but we seem to find a way
We on the rise like shooting stars and I know were going milky way far
optimism on the riz eal thats what we are
I never doubt the supernatural / together we make it possible
So I don’t need to contemplate
I know there’s footprints out in space so Ill just have to say
The Sky is not the limit I know im gonna win it each time oh baby with you
And I really wanna tell you so
The Sky is no limit its million dollar feelings thrilling And I wanna spend it with you
And I really want the world to know
We keep Blazing new frontiers We’re like solar love pioneers
True believers we been steezin on faith for years ohoh
I get cosmic in your sunshine and with you I believe I can fly
Have the confidence to hang in there to push up thru the clouds
Never doubt we supernatural / cuz we always make it possible
So I don’t need to contemplate
Our love is footprints out in space so I can rest my case
The Sky is not the limit I know im gonna win it each time oh baby with you
And I really wanna tell you so
The Sky is no limit its million dollar feelings And I wanna spend em with you
And I really want the world to know

So High High High got to look look up
Sky's no limit aint no stopping us
Going Boom Boom Boom got u so shook up
make the whole world feel it cuz we don’t give up
