Track Name: Bumper Cars
A beautiful sunny day started out like any other
Driving down the street in his rusty old clunker,
“Can I make it there?” he wondered
The big promotion was his for the taking
He could finally see to the top
This is the day when he needed to get there the most

You can't give up
You can't give in
If you’re meant to be
on the road that you're on,
then you’re bound to win

No, you can't give up
You can't give in
Take your time, slow down
See life through to the end

Well she sits and she thinks
“I’m so glad I'm on this road,
I have no idea where I’m going
but I have room to be bold.”
And sweeping by all of the slow ones,
the busses and the tractors
All that's left is the open road
And all she can do, is go faster


Oh, that last left turn
was a time to forget
But you’ll always remember
And always regret
never before has something bad
been so good
Both cars in pieces
And as you stand to the side
It could have been worse
You're still living life
Track Name: Reach A Little Further
Hello? Can you hear me out there? Alright.
Let me be the first one to tell you,
Be yourself, Don’t ever fall down, Speak up, Shout out
for what you believe in
let everybody know who you are
and I promise you’ll go very far

Getting ready for battle and
He’s trying to hold his ground
His heart is racing
Numb with fear and doubt

The reign of bullets begin
as missiles streak the sky
Everything’s about to change
in the blink of an eye

Oh, reach a little further
and you will find
that you can walk the distance
discover bravery inside
outrun the resistance,
keep on persisting
and it will be alright
Oh, reach a little further

They watch with pity
as her pain takes its toll
she takes a deep slow breath
she’s longing to feel whole

Despite uplifting words
They can’t help anymore
She’s fought for so long
She feels like closing door

Learn how to stand up, learn how to fight
whether you’re wrong or right
Think like a bird or a butterfly ready to take flight

Finally, you need to learn
stand up be strong be heard
ready to fight
ready to lead

High and tall you’ve got to exceed

Break the barriers, jump the hurdles, run the distance,
take off when you hear that startin’ gun, don’t wait for resistance

Be brave and don’t let nobody ever burst your fire
Speak what’s on your mind then, learn how to take steps higher

Everyday, Relentlessly
They try to break him down (don’t let ‘em get ya)
their laughter echoes
as they push him down

He’s trying to speak up,
to break through the walls
no matter how hard he tries
no one can hear his calls (come on, come on)
Track Name: Beauty In The Black Sky
I wake to the sound of the seagulls calling,
The sun is still below the mountain range
I hear the captain yelling orders
And the day I know is here again

The sun burns on my back and the sweat runs down my face
World marches on at the same pace
Yet my family’s in my mind the entire day
I think about the way we laughed and the smile on your face

And it makes me fight to stay
And it makes me fight to stay alive
My beauty in the black sky

Lenny is a man full of hopes and dreams,
and he shares each one with me.
Most are about his family,
where he would rather be.

His stories take me back to a better place,
even if its just for awhile.
And everyone smiles in spite of themselves,
in this time of darkness and need.

As sudden as a storm, smoke crashes down
and the ship is ablaze with gunfire.
The men beside me were brave and strong,
but no one saw them backing down.

It rages on, in total disarray,
while smoke continues to blind my way.
And the smoke drifts away,
and the ship burns as clear as day.

Fathers cooking steaks on the grill,
and grandma’s baking cookies in the kitchen,
my boys playing football in the field,
this was my family reunion.

The abyss of the night lets my memories flow
Although my sailor friends are in cheer,
My mind is like the sky itself,
With the stars burning bright in my mind.
Track Name: Silent Conversation
I was deep in my thoughts, thoughts, thoughts
when you looked at me my eyes were red
something about me you caught, caught, caught
I was running away from it

When we first met, met, met
you helped me stand on my two feet
you became my escape, escape, escape
you held out a hand and reached into my soul
and I realized the tears I cry
when you cross my mind
and I know you’ll always be with me

Even when I’m gone
Time is passing by
and I need you said I need you by my side

Because of you my eyes are open
I see the world so clearly you dragged me into
This silent conversation
My fears should become as real as you

The tears I cried
When you cross my mind
and I know you’ll always be with me
Even when I’m gone
Time is passing by
and I need you said I need you
by my side

You are my thoughts
You are my words
You are my memories
You are mine

You are my thoughts
You are my words
You are my memories
You are mine

Dragged me into the silent conversation

I have to fade away into this silent conversation
Track Name: We Are Strong
You tried to take me down
You took out my legs
You made me fall to the ground
You took the light away

but you didn’t know that I’d stand back up
and you didn’t know that i’d be stronger

You thought that you could bring us down
You thought that you could break us
but little did you know that we’d grow stronger
little did you know that we are strong

I tried to see the light
I tested out my legs
Above me was the moon
Brightening the dark
but I didn’t know how to stand back up
and I didn’t know how to be stronger

You thought that you could bring us down
You thought that you could break us
but little did you know that we’d grow stronger
little did you know that we are strong

Now I am standing up
and I can see the light.
You back away,
because I am growing as one
Now we are standing up
and we can see the light
You back away,
because we are growing as one

Na Na Na Na Na
We are growing as one.
Track Name: Soar Like A Bird
I spread my wings to fly
but all they do is die
My brother already soars
Yet I’m behind closed doors
I look up into the sky
Everything seems so high

But if you don’t quit
It's your goal you'll get
But if you don't quit

Just like a baby bird who's falling
Your life it might be stalling
The bird will soon succeed
Just follow its lead

But if you don’t quit
It's your goal you'll get
But if you don't quit

I’ve been in pain as long as I remember
My whole life feels like December
I’m stuck inside a gloomy shell
up from down I couldn’t tell
To another world I’ve tried to venture
But I could not reach the happier center.

I push myself up to face another day
I see colors instead of seeing gray
I’m finally free of depression
Happiness is in my possession
A new start without delay
A lightness fills my heart today

But if you don’t quit
It's your goal you'll get
But if you don't quit

Just like a baby bird who’s bird falling
Your life it might be stalling
The bird will soon succeed

But if you don’t quit
It's your goal you'll get
But if you don't quit
Track Name: You Are Who You Are
Lost inside the fog and doubt
in a world I don’t know
I’m scared that if I try and fail,
there’s only me to blame
Searching for the real me
Who am I? I am alone.
I find strengths within my fears
and courage in my pain...
Ohhh

When you’re lost you have to look for the light
When you believe in yourself, you’ll be alright
Times can be tough
But so can you
This is your chance
Just keep pushing through
Yeah, you are who you are,

The fog is clearing in my mind
and I’ll make it if I try
I’m scared that if I never try,
there’s only me to blame
Searching for the real me,
and I wonder who I’ll find
I find the light within myself,
and I’ll never be the same, Ohhh

Here I am. I’ve found myself
in a place I’ve always known
I made it here because I’ve tried
and look at all I’ve gained.
Searching for the real me
and oh look how I’ve grown
‘cause I am who I am
and I found I can’t be changed...Ohhh

*yeah you are who you are
Track Name: No Me Gustan Pantalones
We like shorts because we have great legs
And we can't do splits in our pants
We like shorts because it gets too hot
And we can't express ourselves

Gymnasts wear shorts, not pants
Climbers wear shorts, not pants
Old dudes wear pants...

No me gustan pantalones
pero me gustan pantalones Cortos
...y El helado
(repeat)

We wear shorts in the summer and we like to feel the breeze,
on our knees, we like to go outside because we're delirious.

Boxers wear shorts, not pants
Spongebob wears shorts, not pants
Vampires wear pants...

No me gustan pantalones,
Pero me gustan pantalones Cortos
...y El HELADO
