Track Name: Awkward Dinosaur
Walking through the village
Feeling pretty strange
Cold hard adrenaline
Pumping through my veins

Go to meet the people
Find out why I'm there
All the natives do is
Point laugh and stare

The elder tells me
Where I am to go
Off to the valley
Off to the show

I beg him to say
What I am to see
What's it supposed to be

He says an...
Awkward! Dinosaur!
Awkward! Dinosaur!
Awkwardx8

Awkward awkward dinosaur
That's what we got you for
Do you want to see the gore
Made by awkward dinosaur

I look at him
For the fool he took for
Am I supposed to believe in
Awkward dinosaur!

Go though the valley
Peeking through the trees
Am I here for
Just a fantasy!

Find a large
Opening in the brush
What is that
Start to get a rush

Cause I saw the...
Awkward! Dinosaur!
Awkward! Dinosaur!
Awkwardx8

Awkward awkward dinosaur
Just what I'm looking for
Awkward awkward dinosaur
Oh my does he roar
Awkward awkward dinosaur
More than I bargained for
From the awkward dinosaur x3

Such an odd look
Coming from his eye
Am I to respect that
Or is it to die

Watched it eat
A deer whole
No need for manners
Or for a bowl

It charges me
As I load my gun
Off to heaven
No more shun

Then I pulled the trigger
Of which I can't ignore
Painted the floor
With awkward dinosaur

Then I
Found out
You can't
Kill
An...
Awkward! Dinosaur!
Awkward! Dinosaur!
Awkwardx8

Awkward awkward dinosaur
You should believe the lore
Awkward awkward dinosaur
Can't stand his bite no more
You should believe the lore
Of the awkward dinosaur
Track Name: Sleep
Trying to sleep at night
Trying
Sleep
Trying

Turn of the lights
All together now
We can
Win this
Fight

The feeling's alone
Awkward at home
I've lost my mind

What's the time
Nine to eight
Feeling oh so great

Want to sleep
Don't want to keep
Anyone up

Trying to
Put my head in the cloud
Don't know where it is
Life a dream
How long till I am
Trying

Trying
To
Sleep

Eyes feel oh so dry
I just want to cry
Trying to sleep at night
Track Name: Saw a Girl
Saw a girl
She was cute
Thoughts did swirl
I felt mute

Watched her change
From her yard
At close range
Stalked her hard

The one day then
I asked her out
Feeling down
Just got to pout cause I...

I got rejected! (slit my throat)
I got rejected! (Let the blood drip out)
Thoughts are strange
Feelings deranged
So stop my heart
The worsts about to start
I got rejected

So I'll cut
And cut

Oh she said
You're creepy
It did shred
My life

Got a saw
Cut her name
In my skin
It was raw

Showed her it
Says I'm insane
I did grin
Until

I got rejected! (stab my eye)
I got rejected! (again)
I got rejected! (don't let me reproduce)
I got rejected!
So stop my heart
The worsts about to start
I got rejected

She won't accept me for me
So, we'll see,
What's going to happen to her

I'm not going to accept her
Oh she's going to pay
Got my hack saw that was hidden away

Stalk her on her way to school
Her jaw will drop, it really will
And then I'll go for the kill

Probably going to slit my wrists
When I get her
Oh crap
It's time

She got rejected!
She got rejected!
So stop her heart
The worsts about to start
She got rejected!

Now it's the end
Of your miserable life
Because you got
Rejected
Track Name: Twinkle Star, Twinkle
Why does a star twinkle in the night sky?
Does it mock me
Does it want to die?

Thinks it's so cool
About such and such
Well I'll show him that he's not a dutch

What am I saying
And what are you saying
And what are we saying
Where's the light bulb

I don't even know
Twinkle twinkle star
I'm out to get you

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder where you are

Red, blue, banana, purple
I'm going to paint you
Red, blue, banana, purple

Why do stars have to be so bright
The star there twinkle twinkle at the night time
Why do they just
Why do they just
Twinkle twinkle twinkle

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder where you are

Yo Meader's here, I'm reppin'
For Pepin, feet on the floor I'm steppin'
Out from behind the line, ya know I'm one of a kind
You'll never find a mind that works as fast as mine
I got all kinds a time, cuz I'm still in my prime

See my bling as it's twinkles, like the northern star
Ya know the wise men be comin from near and far
Ta hear the czar, I leave a scar, and my flow be on par
To be the best damn rapper on this side of mars

Now I don't wanna hear ur slurs
My words, they be so tight that they blur
Ya best be callin me sir, ya know I'm awesome for sure
I'm like a dinosaur, GRR, when I be lookin at her
I bet your kitty it purrs
Huh ladies?

Now duck your head as I shoot
I'll pull you up by the root
I make you wish you were mute
A pirate, steal all your loot
You know this shit don't compute
And now I gotta reboot

Now I let Nicco do his thing
With that sick beat that he bring
Ya hear me singin, I flingin,
The words they zingin, they stingin
And all these rhymes I be stringin
Cuz I'm the king of the ring and
I'll put your ass in a sling and
I'm out
Track Name: She's My Babe
She's my Babe
When I see here need to shave
She's my Babe
Beauty shows
Doesn't know
How lucky I am
I say whoa

Says she loves me
And I love her back
She makes me oh so
Happy

She's my Babe
All to rave
When I see her love occurs
She's my Babe

I reminisce of
When we kiss
I love my Babe

Says she loves me
More than coffee
And I love her back
She makes me happy

Her eyes shine so bright
Like the sun
Love hanging out
It's tons of fun

We have fun
in the fun
Waves crashing on a beach
Loves outdone

Her eyes shine so bright
Like the sun
Love hanging out
It's tons of fun

Been dating for a
Long long while
Wow she can really
Make me smile

She's my Babe
Track Name: Death's Depression
There goes John
Not here for long
Such a Pawn
Did none a wrong

He takes a minute
To gather the fear
Just to slit it
Without any tears

Death depression
Is Killing us all
Our Obsession
It loves to call

No Confession
Is our fear
Our Obsession
Is Drawing us near

He Knows his Job
He's to deliver
He's not to rob
Or to shiver

Can't get away
Intends no harm
All have a day
There's no alarm

Please don't take her
She is very nice
Says she long gone
To pay the price

He's not even evil
It is his job
No upheaval
A few sad sobs

Death depression
Is Killing us all
Our Obsession
It loves to call

No Confession
Is our fear
Our Obsession
Is Drawing us near

Death's Depression
Our Obsession
No, more, fear

It can not
She wants it
Why lose it now
He's not the
Can't you
Think your mind free

Death's Depression
Our Obsession
No, more, fear
Track Name: Tomorrow's the Same
I love her so much
Her her hair, her eyes, her touch

Whatever she say
She makes my day
But there is an issue
That needs resolve

Three guys like her
Who's involved
Should I care
Will we dissolve

Been dating for
Two whole years
What does that mean
Please no tears

Please don't break
My heart you
Mean way to much
Did I lose my to much
Am I not enough

(Cause) I love my Babe
Tomorrow's the same
Forever and again
Cause I love my Babe

Been dating for too long
For me to make this song
Where am I?
Where's that guy?

Get in line
Where's the time

Listen to me
You will see
That you don't
Want those guys

(And) I love my Babe
Tomorrow's the same
Forever and again
Cause I love my Babe

Please don't say
Our love today
Has passed away
Gone with time

Lost its chime
That you're not mine

I can't stand the sight
I'm full of fright
Can you say you love me
My Baby girl
Can you love me?
Track Name: Left in the Cold
Feelings are old
So long
Too bold

Why did it
Have to
Stand in the way
Now it's gone
What left will stay

Why are we
Dust in the wind
No control
Left to sin

Cause why did it leave me?
Why did it stay?

Cause why does this
Open air
Fill my lungs
Cause despair

Why
Can't I say what what I mean
To say I love you
To say

Cause why does this
Open air
Fill my lungs
Cause despair

Why are we
Dust in the wind
No control
Just the wind

Cause why did it leave me?
Why did it stay?
