Alex Salas I was looking for real music in a sea of crap, and then I stumbled upon this safe haven of a website. Since hardly anyone produces ska anymore with a good 90's feel to it, I just started looking. I ran across you guys, and have been in love ever since. Keep on grooving.

Track Name: Atilla
I can’t go to sleep at night, just have too much on my mind
So much going on these days, maybe time to change our ways
When it’s all wrong all that’s left to do is right now
We keep going on this way we’re bound to bring the end

*Verse 1*
What the hell ever happened to, real music
The stuff that’s coming out right now is gonna kill music
I wanna go back to that day, when I could feel music
I wish that I could write one song, and that would heal music
I’d sit down, and I’d write
I’d stay up all through the night
Just to say, so you’d hear
Get my message loud and clear
And then you’d, you’d reject
All of that pop/rock and dreck
And then you, you might find
Some music helps to ease your mind

When it’s all wrong all that’s left to do is right now
If we keep going on this way we’re bound to bring the end

*Verse 2*
All the songs on your radio, they almost pushed me from music
No matter how mindless or meaningless, they’ll still play it, its dumb music
All the nonsense and spoiled brats, you know I hate it, its dumb music
So we decided to start a band and bring you all some fun music
Now we’re here, here for you
To bring you all something new
Real guitars, and real chords
We even threw in real horns
So now its, its your turn
To show the lesson you learned
Snap out of, of your trance
Get out your seat, get up and dance

Track Name: Joke's On You
*Verse 1*
You said, forget the things you learned in school
Go hang out late and shoot some pool
Time after time you play the fool
But it’s all good ‘cause you still seem cool
You wear your arrogance like a crown of jewels
You know the score ‘cause you wrote all the rules
Using people like they’re just your tools
It’s all good as long as you seem cool

‘Cause you think the sun, rises on your command
Like you hold the soul of all the world in the palm of your hand
But someday soon you’ll see it’s all untrue
Some day you’ll learn that the joke, joke is on you

*Verse 2*
Just can’t help but brag and beat your chest
You’re heads and shoulders above the rest
Somewhere inside you you’re a mess
You false bravado keeps that repressed
Sticks and stones may break your heart, but you’ll never express
Your insecurities tucked beneath your bulletproof vest
Who you are beneath is really anybody’s guess
Who you really are is really anybody’s guess

Track Name: Never Gonna Learn
*Verse 1
Stand beside me friend and won't you lend you ears
Time and time again, you know they gotta spread fear
With all of their ploys to keep us stuck in first gear
making So much noise, even the music's unclear
even the music's unclear X3

You can say a lot, with just a few words
We could do much more if we realized its our turn
But if you don't  ever listen, it dont matter what you heard
If you're mind stays closed then you're never gonna learn

*Verse 2
Why do we always make the same mistakes
Why can't you see that we have what it takes
You can't eat your breakfast when no food graces your plate
We don't have much time left but all that's left to do is wait
all that's left to do is wait X3

*Verse 3
Stop standing there and pick your jaws up off the floor
How can I make it more clear that we could all do so much more
Their eyes betray their lies and they think they've got us beat
We won't  surrender or retreat, cause we won't accept defeat
no surrender no retreat, no we won't accept defeat X3
Track Name: Far Behind
*Verse 1*
See my girl she just left me, she don’t love me anymore
She said that she can do without me, she said I am a bore
I know she’s loved a rich man, she knows that I’ll stay poor
I begged my baby not to go, she walked right out the door

A careless girl can take your heart and break your very mind
Tear your insides all apart and treat you so unkind
Be careful how you get your kicks and how you spend your time
She’ll grind you down to tiny bits and leave you far behind

*Verse 2*
Since you left me sugar, I don’t know just what I’ll do
I sit and sulk around the house, thinkin’ about you
You knew you’d leave me all along, I never had a clue
You gave your love to everyone, I always stayed true


Track Name: Underdog
*Verse 1*
Hey dig!
I know how it feels to expect to get a fair shake
But they can’t let you forget
That you’re the underdog and you gotta be twice as good

Even if you’re never right, they get uptight
When you get to bright
‘Cause you might start thinkin’ too much, yeah yeah

I know how it feels when you know you’re real
And every other time you get up, you get a raw deal

Cause I’m the Underdog X4

*Verse 2*
Said I know how it feels, to get demoted
Come time, to get promoted
‘Cause you might start moving up too fast

If you’ve ever loved somebody of a different set
I bet that set didn’t let you forget
That it just don’t go, down like that yeah yeah

I know how it feels when you know you’re real
And every other time you get up, you get a raw deal


Said I know how it feels to be played upon
When you’re really all alone
Cause they just underestimate me

Said I know how it feels when you’re feeling down
And you wanna come up, but you realize
You’re in the wrong part of town

Track Name: Too Fast
*Verse 1*

What do you get the man who’s got nothing left to lose
How do you solve a problem when you haven’t got a clue
In a room that’s full of liars its hard to see who foolin’ who
It’s like breaking in the zoo to try to brush a lion’s tooth
Or trying to walk on water when you haven’t got the shoes
If you can’t climb the tree then how you gonna pick the fruit
To make it through this jungle a man’s gotta have some couth
I said to make it through this jungle a man’s gotta have some couth

Growing up, too fast
Every day that goes by feels like 8 have passed
Too fast
And I don’t know how much longer I can
Don’t know how much longer I can, Don’t know how much longer I can

*Verse 2*
When it’s hard to see it’s hard to find
Find your own, peace of mind
Just let it be and you’ll be fine
Take you light, and let it shine
Illuminate those dark spaces
Wash all the dirty faces
And everyone who sees you they’ll say
“boy, you’re goin’ places”


In life you see my friends it all comes down to perspective
When it comes to what you do in life you’ve gotta be selective
Don’t follow in the path of others make your own directive
‘Cause in the end my friends you gotta leave your own vestige
Or make your own footprint deep inside the sand
Have your own philosophy and be your own man
Don’t let your life go back asking others if you can
Have your own ideas and stuggles, yes, be your own man

Track Name: When I'm Gone
You know just what you want to do, you heard it in my song
You know that you’ll be right, but you fear you could be wrong
Don’t be afraid to love me now, ‘cause I just can’t stay long
Don’t be afraid to love me now, ‘cause you’ll miss me when I’m gone

Verse 1
It’s hard to feel so brave when you’re alone inside the night
And when you feel afraid it’s hard to tell who’s wrong or right
If you don’t have no wings it’s so hard to start the flight
You know that you could fall, so you stay so scared of heights
You could never take the leap, you’re just worried that you’re fail
You could spend all of your time like a dog chasing it’s tail
The world skates the whole rink, you just hold the rail
Its the world that holds the hammer and its you they wanna nail


Verse 2
I know I might be gone for a while, but I still smile
Might not hear your song for a while, but still I smile
I can’t see what lies in wait, still I tread another mile
The world still sees I coming, wants to add me to its pile
Of those who came before me, but I still just smile
Not sure of what awaits me, but I know I’ll pass the trial
My sheer determination, undeterred just like a child
I keep my focus on my goal and smiling all the while

Track Name: You Don't Know Me
*Verse 1*
And so this is the life we lead
Consumed by consumption and eaten by greed
Controlled by our classes pretending we’re free
Handing our power to this fumbling regime
Blinded by cash missing forests for green
Faking the proper but being obscene
Constantly sleeping we’re chasing their dreams
Crying out “such is life” with our final most screams

So how you gonna tell me how to live my life
When you don’t know, you don’t know me
Runnin’ round living life so blind
‘Cause you can’t, no you can’t see
The world is changing, changing all around you
So don’t tell me how to live my life
‘Cause you don’t know, you don’t know me

*Verse 2*
Cookies cut out all from the same pan
Gingerbread houses, foundations of sand
No one sticks out when we all stay so bland
Fooling ourselves into making a stand
In a sea of distractions which way is the land
What will we do when it all hits the fan
Our ship takes on water, we’ll do what we can
As our lives take on water we’ll do what we can

Track Name: Saints
*Verse 1*
Why do you always try so hard, to stamp out all my soul
To keep applying pressure, to put my dreams on hold
You tell me I should shut up and just do as I am told
You try to break me down and make me rise up in your mold
You try to tear down all my walls but I don’t think I’ll let ya
You but your heat on me but I don’t think I’ll sweat ya
Deep inside yourself you wish that you were me I bet ya
I think it would be best of me to just try and forget ya

I might not know just where I’m going
I can’t recall just where I’ve been
But I’m gon’ keep doing things my way
Until those Saints come marchin’ in

*Verse 2*
Just because you didn’t make it doesn’t mean I won’t
And just because I couldn’t fake it, doesn’t mean you don’t
You’re lying through your teeth but you are lying to yourself
Keep your generosity ‘cause I don’t need your help
Keep your ingenuity I’ll be just fine without it
You may wake up and change one day but I sure kinda doubt it
So find something better to do than raining down my back
Its not my fault you can’t do well I guess you just can’t hack


Do you make your own luck or does your luck make you?
You can work so hard but where will it take you
You want a bigger piece of pie but wanna have your cake you
Are you gonna catch a break or let the pressure break you?
Force you to be a fake you, until you hate you
If I let ‘em guide my life then I can share that fate too
But that I can’t do, no, I’ve gotta be me
Won’t stop that low, won’t plant that seed
Won’t dig in your dirt, my hands stay clean
Blaze my own damn path, won’t follow no lead
Won’t succumb to no greed, won’t beg, won’t plead
Eventually I’ll be just where I’m trying to be
I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees
Won’t let this small town scene kill my big city dreams
Yes one day soon I’ma do as I please
And I’ma do it ‘til the saints march through New Orleans

Track Name: More Than I Can Be
*Verse 1*
Weatherman said it might rain, but I don't mind Hell I like it better when the sun don't shine Take a look inside myself, never know what I'll find I do know I can't reach the top til I learn how to climb. And if I never learn to love then my heart'll turn to stone If I don't grow roots then I'll never find a home If I can't ask for help then I'll fail on my own Cause Everybody in the world is made of dust, guts and bone *chorus* Even half of what you are is more than I can be Cause I do as I'm told and you do as you please I don't wanna work no more, I just wanna fall off trees And lay underneath em in the cool, spring breeze

Even half of what you are is more than I can be
Cause I do as I'm told and you do as you please
I don't wanna work no more, I just wanna fall off trees
And lay underneath em in the cool, spring breeze

*Verse 2*
Weatherman lied cause the sun shining bright Hell I like it better in the middle of the night I ain't gotta be a boxer to know how to fight And sometimes using my head ain't all that bright Cause if I think too much I could hurt my brain And if I drink too much then I don't feel pain
I take this empty bottle and I can throw it at a train Just another day chasing fortune and fame
Track Name: B.N.S.
*Verse 1*
Girl what have you done?
Life’s so much sweeter when you’re not on the run
And what have you seen?
Wake up darlin’, see you’re living the dream
Now what have you heard?
You can have all you desire if you just say the word
So why don’t you try?
You’ll see so much better with your head held up high, yeah

It’s easy to get down and forget who you are
Instead of looking up and catching your star
Don’t let ‘em beat ya baby you can’t let them win
If you throw out all the bad then the good will let itself in

*Verse 2*
Girl things aren’t that rough
Sometimes the road gets hard but you gotta hang tough
Stay true to yourself
Don’t never let ‘em tell you put your pride on that shelf
Now whaddaya know?
I said things are looking up and its starting to show
Now listen to me
I said you won’t amount to nothin’ till you set yourself free

Track Name: So Well
*Verse 1*
Things started out just fine, you kept yourself in line
I guess you were biding time, before you were stealing mine
Things weren’t as peachy then, I can remember when
You started to stick your pins, deeper into my skin
At first I didn’t know how far you’d make me go
Into the rabbit’s hole, believing all that you told
You gave me a hand to hold, while the other one tore out my soul

How did you lie, why did you lie, how did you lie to me so well
I think I’ll die, ‘cause I’d rather die, yeah I’d rather die than stay in hell

*Verse 2*
I thought you were the one, we were just having fun
You blinded me like the sun, while you aimed your smoking gun
And shot me right in the head, you made me an invalid
I hung on the words you said, I would’ve been better dead
Than stuck in you deadly claws
You cut me, with your buzzsaw
I waited on every call
But you never cared at all

Track Name: S.B.R.
*Verse 1*
Only a fool could have the notion
That dividing me could earn your quotient
Flagging your illegal motion
I set my sails unto the ocean
Cause so many fish live in the sea
And so many leaves fall from the tree
So many ears can hear my plea
So no more you and no more, no more, no more we

Cause I can find quite anyone to break my heart
The world’s a stage and we all play our part
But this is not my role to play
I’ve had enough, I leave today

*Verse 2*
What did you want me to do?
You pushed me far away from you
What did you expect me to say?
You just kept pushing me away
And now you say you want me back
But it’s time we faced the facts
We can’t go on as you and me
I think it’s time you left me, and leave me, just let me be


I’m gone today but in the scheme of things that really don’t mean much
All that really matters; you’ve got one less soul to crush
One less excuse for you to use, can’t use me as your crutch
And one less heart for you to bruise, and no more distrust
‘Cause I’m free from you clutch, I’m free to be myself
You’re free to take your broken dreams and burden someone else
Free to take your crazy schemes and damaged mental health
On to someone else who doesn’t know you very well
You know I’ve, put up with so much and now I gotta go
Gotta come down off your cloud so I can see the world below
And gently down the stream I’ll take my little boat and row
‘Cause life might be a dream but you will still reap what you sowed, I’m out the door

Track Name: Too Slow
*Verse 1*

We’re all bound to make mistakes, sometimes
We all need to pump the brakes, sometimes
There’s not enough real and too much fake
There’s not enough give and too much take

You can never be too slow, or a little too late
Never be afraid to go, on the road to what’s great
Keep your head above the water and don’t let ‘em tempt your fate
But who could ever never be too slow or a little too late

*Verse 2*
You know just where to draw the line, sometimes
You know that everything’s not fine, sometimes
Don’t let ‘em put you in a corner, get you in a bind
Don’t ever let ‘em catch ya sleeping, always keep tryin’, hard


Never too slow, never too late
Can’t stop now, feels too great
Can’t stop eatin’ till I clean my plate
Can’t stop tryin’ till I clean my slate
I can’t wait, my time’s now
If you can’t dig it then I’ll show you how
Half y’all rappers can’t match my style
I can’t bow, I don’t know how
Flow so wild, verse so cold
Won’t slow down, I’m in my zone
Ya can’t fit my shoes, Can’t slow my roll
Never too late, never too slow
I won’t fold, my hand’s too sick
Hey young world, I feel like Rick
Burning both ends, but keep my wick
Never slow up, I stay too quick, I’m slick

We’re too tired to sleep to think to breathe life into humanity
So close your eyes and hang on tight, to this simple chord’s invite
Of three notes spaced evenly Music is embraced similarly
To that of the world’s belief That music is the answer to our relief
