Tracklist

Shakey Ground

length: 3:46
writer: Al Boyd, Jeffrey Bowen, Eddie Hazel

Lady luck and a four leaf clover
Won't ease this hurt I feel all over
My life was one big special occasion
Until your leaving damp with the situation

[Chorus]
Standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shaky ground
Ever since you put me down

My car got repossessed this morning
Hard times I haven't seen in years
Girl, you better throw me a life preserver
I'm about to drown in my own tears

[Chorus]

The Suffering

length: 5:17
writer: Angelo Moore, David Baerwald, John Norwood Fisher, Steve Lindsey
I saw the stars in your eyes
And I knew it was puppy school love

You saw the twinkle in mine
Then we both knew it was time to hold our breath
And run and get committed

We got lost in a sea of love and lust
With a galaxy of trust
We were soon committed
To each other like a mussel in a clam
To the movies to the mall glued together hand in hand

And we walked and ran through love land
Everything was fine
Until my baby took me for my very last dime

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I`d been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I`m wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

Understand I`m a man
Who believes in the glory of love
You`re a fool and a sucka
True love is the light shining bright
From the Heavens, The Heavens above
You cold ************

I believe, I believe it is better to trust
Even when I`m wrong
Be careful you`re my brother
Than to let my fear drive me
From the home where I have belonged

She was my Queen to protect and serve
Then she threw me a curve
Skam skimmin` gold diggin`
Kick me to the curb

Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I`d been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I`m wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

I know what they say on the street
She`s a cheat and a thief and a liar
And everybody knows it
But she`s my light and my love and my hope
And my only desire
You`re anger can`t control it

She broke the bank, then she took my car
That chick stole my heart

Should have known from the start
Bang, bang, shoot me dead
Thought my baby loved me
But I`d been mislead

My, my she sucked me dry
Now the little Ms. wants to say bye bye

Once I was a King
Now I`m wrapped around her finger
Like a diamond ring

The engagement ring
The wedding ring
The church bells ring
And the suffering

Where'd You Get Those Pants

length: 3:45
writer: Allee Willis, Angelo Moore, John Norwood Fisher, Steve Lindsey
Grabbin' flesh and moanin' like a Buddist chant
Polyester friction rubbin' butt
Pedal pushers pumpin', I can't get enough
Hip huggin' puts me in a trance

Ohhh, where'd you get those pants?
Lord have mercy

Where'd you get those pants?
Like honey stickin' to a jar attractin' ants
It makes me alivate when your chocolate shakes
So gimme double chili cheese and bacon cake
And throw me in a side of romance

Girl, where'd you get those pants
Hey foxy lady

This shiny silver sweaty shirt stuck to my skin
Reveals the hot and helpless hungry state I'm in
You give my brand new pants a brand new happy fit
You really got me movin'
So let me get you groovin'

Where'd you get those pants
Let's hit the parking lot for a second glance
In the back seat of my Cadillac, let's take a chance
Them bitchy britches look so dope
Hittin' switches til it itches, let's lose control

Where'd you get those pants?
I can dig it
Where'd you get those pants?

Click like a camera flash
And them Spandex
Making me erect
Ahh, those daisy dukes
The way they ridin' up the booty
Make an old man just get up and dance
And take all his Viagra

The fit on the hip makes my backbone slip
The slope of the curve hits the rawest nerve
Those silky thights they hypnotize
You're messin' up my mind

The fit on the hip makes it worth the trip
The slope of the curve hits the rawest nerve
Thsoe silky thighs they hypnotize
You're messin' up my mind



Everybody Is a Star

length: 3:51
composer: Sylvester Stewart
lyricist: Sylvester Stewart
Everybody is a star
Who can rain and chase the dust away
Everybody wants to shine
We'll come out on a cloudy day

'Tis the sun that loves you round
When the system tries to bring you down
Ever had a shiny night?
You don't need darkness to do what you think is right

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh [Repeat: x 2]

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground... in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle goin' round and round

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ba pa-pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba pa-pa ba ba ba,
ba-pa ba-pa ba ba, shine, shine, shine, shine

Then all the crazy ****... yeah.

One Planet People

length: 5:17
writer: Angelo Moore, Dallas Austin, Walter Adam Kibby II

All Praises to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords...
Since the start of man, it's been our nature...
To learn every sin backed by deception...
So we don't think anything about real humanity y'all...
Wish we could feed the world with a block of cheese y'all...
And every prophet said it would come...these troubled times...
The children scream for water under the sun...in search of their mind...
Righteous baby get right, time for the people (time for the people today)
Racist people get back for one planet people yeah...
Freedom is the key for world unity y'all...
Babylon must fall, bow to His knees y'all...

For total peace and love, let's all agree y'all...
All these dirty war situations must cease yeah, (All wars must cease)
And every prophet said it would come...these troubled times...
Their children scream for water under the sun...in search of their mind...
Righteous baby get right, time for the people (time for the people today)
Racist people get back, for one planet people yeah...
Interlude in Spanish (I really wish I knew what they are saying)
And every prophet said it would come...these troubled times...
The children scream for water under the sun...in search of their mind...
Righteous baby get right, time for the people (Time for the people today)
Racist people get back for one planet people yeah...
Repeat chorus...

Just Allow

length: 3:30
writer: John Norwood Fisher
You've seen your future from your present state
And filtered through your past, it may not look too great
If you could have your future generate your now
You'd probably sit back, relax, kick off your shoes and just allow

Like you got nuttin' to lose and just allow
That's how you liberate your muse and just allow
Like you got nuttin' to lose and just allow here and now
Just allow sweatless brow

Next plore the things you never knew you didn't know
Release your fears, they'll only serve to stop your flow
No need to try hard you'll get there anyhow
The hardest thing maybe is stop trying and just allow

Like you got nuttin' to lose and just allow
Why row your boat when you can cruise and just allow
Like you got nuttin' to lose and just allow here and now, just allow

The universe is on my side it nurtures all maternally
Whether or not there's a heaven or hell to burn our souls infernally
When the universal elements agree existence thrives eternally
True destiny just come to be can't be controlled externally
Just allow

It's not a state of inactivity it's more like life, in onto livability
There are no herdsmen you aren't sheep or cows
You'll find your interstellar if you just allow

Like you got nuttin' to lose and just allow
No introductions to confuse and just allow
Like you got nuttin' to lose and just allow here and now
Just allow

Aids & Armageddon

length: 5:58
composer: David Baerwald
lyricist: David Baerwald
writer: David Baerwald
I get six to many fingers and a subatomic coat
I took my baby out to dinner but all she wanted
Was dope on the way to the abortion
She said babies take hope I said all you ever do
Is just sit around and mope about

Aids and Armageddon
Armageddon and Aids
Well I don't want to talk about it
Cause I think I might have got it
Anyway I just got laid
Armageddon and Aids

I dream ***assination I hallucinate cash
I'm afraid of my own future I'm disgusted with my past
I wake up dreaming every morning
About some chemical blast my brain
Filled up with questions that I'm too afraid to ask
I just don't wanna know

Aids and Armageddon
Armageddon and Aids
Well I don't want to talk about it
Cause I think I might have got it
And anyway I just got paid
That's Aids and Armageddon
Armageddon and Aids

Well she was in hiding
From the powers that be
She viewed living
As dying ungracefully
Our love affair ended
The day she tried to kill me
She said you know
You're gonna die
I said yeah but not yet

So I wound up in Las Vegas
To earn some alimony cash
I made an honest dollar
Looking through my
Neighbors trash
But these jaded jet set wastrels
Always pounding at my door
They'd talk about Gandhi
Then go looking for some hoes

It All Kept Startin' Over Again

length: 5:59
writer: Angelo Moore, John Norwood Fisher
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end

I flew to the nearest escape
I ran from the land of rape
I jumped in the krnked up pit
I skuttled over snakes and bacon bits
I slipped on the peel of misfortune
I stumbled while tryin' to recover a fumble
I scraped up the flattened and started again
I leaped from within without a spring or a spin
we be cyclin' in a cyclic way

It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end

I sauntered onto a thinly paved scalp
I staggered from a glass of stout
I took a loan I could not afford
I launched up hi the halo in the sky
I come up from beneath and remove the confining sheath
I slithered with stealth and snuck past the infection
I lurched forward in one solid direction I stood alone
because I had to survive we recycle in a cyclic way

It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end
It all kept startin' over again
with a different beginning and a different end

Like a snotty nose spoilyor a booger eatin' bully
scapegoat distraction is to keep from lookin' silly
Oh ya -- alright like a snotty nose spoily
or a booger eatin' bully ugly on the inside
on the outside lookin' pretty oh ya -- alright

we be cyclin' in a cyclic way maze like this
amazed like this we recycle in a cyclic way
lost in a daze like this we recycle in a cyclic way

And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
And it all kept startin' over again
