Track Name: Freeway Parking Lot
Pulling out of your driveway
there was no cloud in the sky
you said what a gorgeous day
I think that I will go for a ride

you could have taken other streets
but you chose the freeway parking lot
with it's crumbling concrete
you'll be stuck in one spot

sitting in traffic oh
sitting in traffic oh

as you watch your life go by
you do not get so far
you wonder if you will die
while sitting in your car

what is causing this delay
on the freeway parking lot
somethings holding you at bay
you never thought
you'd be
sitting in traffic oh
sitting in traffic oh

you wanna get somewhere but you're stuck right there
on the freeway parking lot
you wanna get somewhere but you're stuck right there
sitting in traffic

you wanna get somewhere but you're stuck right there
on the freeway parking lot
you wanna get somewhere but you're stuck right there
sitting in traffic

solo

sitting in traffic oh
sitting in traffic oh
sitting in traffic oh
sitting in traffic oh
Track Name: The Club
Oh
Outside there's a real long line
the folks are dressin' so fine
to get in the club

Oh
The bouncer men are lookin' so mean
making sure your over 18
to get in the club

They've worked so hard
to look just right

Tonight's the big night

Everyone just do whatcha want
once you get in the club
Lose your mind let your body go free
once you get in the club

Everybody

Just Get Down Get Down
Everyone get crazy in the club
Get Down Get Down

Oh
The muscle men in their tight white shirts
are checkin' out all of the skirts
Right here in the club

Oh
The pretty girls in their tiny little threads
they're turnin' all of the heads
Right here in the club

they're makin' plans
for later tonight

when sparks will ignite!

Everyone just do whatcha want
do it right here in the club
Lose your mind let your body go free
do it right here in the club

Everybody
Get Down Get Down
Just Get Down Get Down
Everyone get crazy in the club

Everyone get crazy in the club

The club is a place for the whole human race
to leave their manners at the door
cause you could end up in close embrace
or passed out drunk on the floor

Everybody
Get Down Get Down

The club is a place for the whole human race
to leave their manners at the door
you might wind up in close embrace
or passed out drunk on the floor

Everybody

Track Name: MJ's Grave
Singing from his soul from the time he was a little kid
There never was anyone who did what he did

The King of Pop crown rests upon his head
We'll never forget the day we heard he was - dead

So come on
And lets go for a ride
to see where pop music died
it's michael jackson's grave

Uh huh uh huh

here lies the man whose following was obsessed
here lies a man who finally will get to rest

Here lies michael jackson r-i-p
we miss you michael you were a p-y-t

come on
And lets go for a ride
to see where pop music died
it's michael jackson's grave

come one come all, see the final resting place of the king of pop, michael jackson!
get your king of pop souvenirs here. michael jackson gloves, michael jackson hats, michael jackson ice cream!

come on
And lets go for a ride
to see where pop music died
it's michael jackson's grave
amen x 4

And lets go for a ride

Track Name: New Downtown
Mom
Dad
Livin in new downtown is so damn rad
hanging out
so much to see

there's no shopping malls
unlike your suburbia that sprawls
we've found a new home


new downtown
is where I wanna be
new downtown
is just the place for me

They've done some rearranging to make sure those streets are clean
new downtown
is where I wanna be

Mom
Dad
You said left the city to get away
too much crime and
urban decay

well we took it - back
locked up all those people hooked on crack
cause this town belongs to us

we evicted all the welfare moms
got rid of all the bums
gutted all buildings
to make room for

new downtown
is where I wanna be
new downtown
is just the place for me
They've done some rearranging to make sure those streets are clean
new downtown
is where I wanna be

mom dad
you gave us everything but we still want some more

mom dad
thanks for all love but we still want some more
more more more
new downtown
Track Name: A Dive Bar off Main Street
At 12 in the afternoon
He's already high as the moon
drinking at his favorite dive bar

his family thinks he's a slob
cause every since he lost his job
he doesn't get very far

there are no words that explain
his darkest pain


and now he's stuck there

drinkin' away, he's drinkin' away all his problems
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street
oh yeah

feelin' ok, he's feelin' ok until 3last call
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street


bear witness to the fall
of a man who lost it all
and it started on a friday

trying to fill the void
that left him unemployed
that's when he started..

drinkin' away, he's drinkin' away all his problems
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street
oh yeah

feelin' ok, he's feelin' ok until the last call
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street

Wastin' away,he's wastin' away but lord what else can he do?
he's on his own - and he can't break through

But there is a place, a place that he can go where everyone knows his name
it's a little dive bar, a dive bar off main
Track Name: Rooftop Balcony
Dry your tears and come with me
to the rooftop balcony
from this vantage you will see
a view of the old city

looking down from a place so high
you turn to ask me why oh why
why must we say goodbye
and this is what I will reply

all this will be just a memory
take one last look from this balcony

you have made up your mind
to leave this city far behind
go on do what you must do
and let go of me and you

--

all this will be just a memory
take one last look from this balcony

--

When you're where you need to be
I am certain that you will agree
that you saw what you needed to see
from this rooftop balcony
Track Name: A Place to Call Home
packin' my things
looks to me like I'll be on my way
oh hey

and where I land
is it the place that i am meant to be
I guess we'll see
what life has in store for me

movin town to town
my life is just a journey
I'm looking for a place to call home

i know that I'm bound
to find what I'm after
I'm looking for a place
I'm looking for a place
I'm looking for a place to call home

lookin' for a place
that greets me with an honest warm embrace
oh hey

i want a place with a community that will give me the opportunity to grow
but we'll see what I find ohhh

movin town to town
my life is just a journey
I'm looking for a place to call home

i know that I'm bound
to find what I'm after
I'm looking for a place
I'm looking for a place
I'm looking for a place to call


home is just a place where you can lay your head


but my home will be more than a bed


home is just 4 walls and a door


but my home will be so much more

a refuge for my weary heart
a place that was callin' from the very start

goin' town to town
like a troubadour whose always travelin' round
I'm gonna sing my song
til' I find where I belong

movin town to town
my life is just a journey
I'm looking for a place to call home

i know that I'm bound
to find what I'm after
I'm looking for a place
I'm looking for a place
I'm looking for a place to call home
home

ahhh
Track Name: The Hair Salon
time to make a change
do it in the hair salon
get a brand new look
and he will be gone

get the latest trend
then you can pretend
that was the last of him
it's just that easy

Well you can change your hair
but this love will still be there
no matter what you do
nothings changed
and I'll still be with you

since we've parted ways
you just can't take
feeling so alone
all your friends are tellin' you
you don't need me
be on your own

Girl change your hair.. show him you don't care

Well you can change your hair
but this love will still be there
no matter what you do
nothings changed
and I'll still be with you

Well you can change your hair
but this love will still be there
no matter what you do
nothings changed
and I'll still be with you

Girl you made a change
in that hair salon
I see a brand new you
with your sexy hairdo

put it on display
that way he will say
that was the last of him
it's easy

Girl you changed your hair. But I know that you still care

Well you can change your hair
but this love will still be there

Well you can change your hair
but this love will still be there

the love you need can not be found in a hair salon
Track Name: Trapped in my Head
I'm trapped in my head with no way out
thoughts that drive me insane
when night time comes I can't get to bed
I wish I could switch off my brain

Hey
I want to be with her
Again
I want to be with her

I'm trapped in my head covered in doubt
images burned in my mind
I'm swimming through feelings because I'm still healing
from someone I've left behind

Hey
I want to be with her
Again
I want to be with her

Take me away get me out of my head
[out of my head]
Save me from myself take me anywhere instead
and if she ever comes back to my world
it would set me free
free from me

Inside my head my fears all come true
I can't decide what to do
I dream of the day that I could be free
set me free from me

Hey
I want to be with her
Again
I want to be with her

Take me away get me out of my head
[out of my head]
Save me from myself take me anywhere instead
get me out of my head
get me out of my head
and if she ever comes back to my world
it would set me free
free from me
