The Rapper    (Dominic Ierace © Don Iris Music (BMI), EMI Unart Catalog Inc. (BMI), Souler Two Music (BMI))

Hey girl I betcha, there's someone out to get you 
You'll find him anywhere on a bus, in a bar, in a grocery store 
And he'll say, "Excuse me, 
Haven't I seen you somewhere before?" 

Rap, rap, rap, they call him the rapper 
Rap, rap, rap, you know what he's after 

So he starts his rappin', hopin' something will happen 
He'll say he needs you, a companion, a girl he can talk to 
Now he's made up his mind 
He needs someone to sock it to 

Rap, rap, rap, they call him the rapper 
Rap, rap, rap, you know what he's after 

So he's made an impression, so he makes a suggestion 
Come up to my place, for some coffee or tea or me 
Well he's got you where he wants you 
And girl you gotta face reality 

Rap, rap, rap, they call him the rapper 
Rap, rap, rap, you know what he's after 

Rap, rap, rap, they call him the rapper 
Rap, rap, rap, you know what he's after

Crazy Ladies    (Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

Sometimes I think I'm a pretty lucky guy 
I walk around the streets at night, and there's the reason why 
Standing on the corner, I see those big brown eyes 
The movement and the glances just take me to the skies 

Getting late, is it worth the time to try 
I wonder why they lie 

Walking down the road I see some more sweet scenery 
It seems to me the ones I see, wanna come to me 
They're usin' all my money, and they're takin' all my time 
Tell me girl can you give to me, more than just a rhyme 

Getting late, is it worth the time to try 
I wonder why they lie 

Crazy ladies you're drivin' me wild 
Take me to the stars 
Crazy ladies you're drivin' me wild 
Take me oh so far...away 

Crazy ladies you're drivin' me wild 
Take me to the stars 
Crazy ladies you're drivin' me wild 
Take me oh so far...away 

Understand the reasons why they want to act this way 
If I had a wish I wish that I could see them change 
Never hesitate to say that they're crazy in thier ways 
Those crazy ladies are all around, and I know that they're here to stay 

Getting late, is it worth the time to try 
I wonder why they lie 

Crazy ladies you're drivin' me wild 
Take me to the stars 
Crazy ladies you're drivin' me wild 
Take me oh so far

You Turn Me On    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

I'm tryin', I'm tryin
But I just can't find a way to escape 
Relyin', relyin
On you to make the first mistake 

Dyin', I'm dyin
‘Cause I see what you got in store 
Tryin', I'm tryin
It's so hard you know I can't take no more 

You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 

Burnin', I'm burnin
Oh! I'm getting so close to your fire 
Learnin', I'm learnin
To control my achin' heart 

Teasin', you're teasin
Don't you know you're gonna drive me insane 
Pleasin', you're pleasin
‘Cause you know my pleasure is your pain 

You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
Oh ya! you really turn me on 
Ooh! all night long 

I'm tryin', I'm tryin
But I just can't find a way to escape 
Relyin', relyin
On you to make the first mistake 

Dyin', I'm dyin
‘Cause I see what you got in store 
Tryin', I'm tryin
It's so hard you know I can't take no more 

You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! All night long 
You turn me, you turn me on! Ooh! all night long 
You turn me, you turn me on

Time After Time    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

I just can't help but think there's got to be a way 
Since I met you girl, I can't get through the day 
The way you left me with my life on the line 
Just ain't fair to call, when you got the time 

Time after time 
You got me wanting you 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line 

You can change yourself from black into white 
You kept me hangin' on, all through the night 
You think you're smart the way you fool around with me 
I tell you now I know how it's gonna be 

Time after time 
You got me wanting you 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line, you got me on the line 

I just can't help but think there's got to be a way 
Since I met you girl, I can't get through the day 
The way you left me with my life on the line 
Just ain't fair to call, when you got the time 

Time after time 
You got me wanting you 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line 

Time after time 
Time after time 
Time after time, after time 
Girl you got me on the line, time after... time

Lost and Found    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

I'm on a rolling tide, rolling away 
I know the pleasure's mine, hope that it can stay 

And I can't hold nothing on you 
It's my fault, I know it's true 
I let you get the better of me, can't you see? 

I'm lost and found 

Looking for a clue, with no where to start 
The distance seen between us, tears me apart 

And I can't hold nothing on you 
It's my fault, I know it's true 
I let you get the better of me, can't you see? 

I'm lost and found 

I'm on the road to reason, forever and a day 
My sentence is my prison, here I've gotta stay 

And I can't hold nothing on you 
It's my fault, I know it's true 
I let you get the better of me, can't you see? 

I'm lost and found

Shot Down In Flames    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

I drive so fast at night, never do look back 
Always run the red lights, off the beaten track 
Living one for all, and breathing all for one 
Forever on the run, always jump the starting gun 

Shot down in flames, only just begun 
Shot down in flames, under the gun 
Shot down in flames, now my song is sung 
Shot down in flames 

Naked in the light, through the fire line 
I'm takin' hold tonight, ignoring all the signs 
My lady luck is comin', I feel her by my side 
I'll never let the straight life, take me for a long lost ride 

Shot down in flames, only just begun 
Shot down in flames, under the gun 
Shot down in flames, now my song is sung 
Shot down in, shot down in flames 

Shot down in flames, only just begun 
Shot down in flames, under the gun 
Shot down in flames, now my song is sung 
Shot down in, shot down in, shot down in flames

Caught in the Wind    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

I'm weary! Oh days turn to nights without end 
And always, to feel just a spiral descend 
I'm leaving, those bright city lights behind 
To follow, the beconing voice I must find 

I'm caught in the wind 
I'm taking my chances with you 
I'm caught in the wind 
Maybe some day we'll get through 

I'm turning, through pages of my life and times 
And meeting, the few that tell me they are mine 
And never, to recapture those moments again 
To follow, the onward and upwarding trend 

I'm caught in the wind 
I'm taking my chances with you 
I'm caught in the wind 
Maybe some day we'll get through 

I'm weary! Oh days turn to nights without end 
And always, to feel just a spiral descend 
I'm leaving, those bright city lights behind 
To follow, the beconing voice I must find 

I'm caught in the wind 
I'm taking my chances with you 
I'm caught in the wind 
Maybe some day we'll get through

Paths of Heart    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

Leave the highland to wander through endless streams 
Through the valleys, of sights too real to be seen 
Songs of life they echo on through the trees 
I'm homeward bound the sun is reaching out to me 

The water flows and the shadows grow inside us 
The window pain and it sees the strain on you 

Neverending, fast sequences of life 
They heed to borrow from paths of lifes delight 
The silent wonder, to whom to give a sigh 
An aging singer, who's song throws judgement nigh 

The water flows and the shadows grow inside us 
The window pain and it sees the strain on you 

Leave the highland to wander through endless streams 
Through the valleys, of sights too real to be seen 
Songs of life they echo on through the trees 
I'm homeward bound the sun is reaching out to me 

The water flows and the shadows grow inside us 
The window pain and it sees the strain on you

Points of Resistance    ( Rick Santers © Santoonz Music SOCAN)

When temperance ceases 
From conflicts and leasions 
Times cynical teacher 
Revolves in confusion 

Friction increases, as two worlds collide 
The sensible virtues from chaos subside 

Occuring in cycles 
Lifes aesthetic preacher 
Survives in the riddles 
Provided by seekers 

Friction increases, as two worlds collide 
The sensible virtues from chaos subside 

Maybe I'm a rich man, and don't know what I like 
Maybe I'm a poor man with everything in life 
Some say there's a reason, hidden in the rhyme 
So I'll take my chances, and I will take my time 

From now he is sleeping 
Protected by ego 
But time may arouse him 
And he must let his shields go 

Friction increases, as two worlds collide 
The sensible virtues from chaos subside
