Track Name: Chaos by Matallic
I go to bed on a Saturday night
and nothing is alright.

The children are crying,
the animals are dying
and I'm sooo sad.
-Instrumental Break-
I can't wake-up from this horrible nightmare
and I don't know why.
Am I really dreaming or am I just gonna die?

(chorus)
My dream is chaos, chaos
I tell you chaos, chaos

Why is this happening to me, even in a dream?
The buildings are broken
and that's a bad token of my imagination.

(chorus)

And when I wake up everything is alright.
Track Name: Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover by Electro
I went to school and I saw you
Then I stopped and I got sad
So don't judge about what I say
About what I do, don't judge

Sometimes people bully people
For being big or small
Boys like blue and green
And girls like pink and purple
Boys can't like unicorns
Girls can't like dragons

Don't judge a book by its cover
If we just treat one another
Exactly the same, we might see
Things we hadn't seen before

Sometimes I want to turn around
And disappear in air, but then turn back
You treat me like a piece of trash
And throw me away, just to sit and disintegrate

Don't judge, just have a good life
Not just walk around and change your mind
It's nothing to compare
Don't judge a book by its cover
Just have a good life
Now let's go and have fun
Don't judge a book by its cover
It's nothing to compare

Don't judge a book by its cover
If we just treat one another
Exactly the same, we might see
Things we hadn't seen before
Track Name: Knife! by Party Pants
Verse 1
Such a dull life
problems all the time
I just want to cut them...
with a knife!

Chorus
You see me standing there
not a care in the world
I don't care what you say
I'm gonna be me anyway!

Verse 2

Wish I could drift away and distance myself
to some beautiful place
some beautiful place
I want to pick
cherry blossoms with
the geishas in japan
hang out with the monks
in thailand
meditate my fears away
I want to flamenco
dance with some casinets
chill at machupichu!
No! its not picachu
but it doesn't matter i'm not taking you !
Track Name: November by The Keyboardist is Dead
We're running out of November
a guard rail blocking my sight
I feel like a deer in the headlights
stuck between deep snow and night

Chorus:
There's nowhere left to go
the lights have all turned red
the music fades away 'cause
the keyboardist is dead
November
November

We're running out of November
time to sweep up all the straw
where did I put the matches?
I can't seem to get rid of it all

Chorus

We're running out of November
the rabbits have all gone astray
we'll never find the right answers
the sunlight is fading away

Chorus
Track Name: Simply Nothing More by Don't Call Me Shirley
he's got something special
and you're all that i've been
talkin' 'bout

wasting his time with all those
silly little somethings he's been
singin' 'bout

he had those
age old stories
repeated in his verses
about how cool she wasn't
and how he was

chorus:
you've got those stars in your eyes
wishing it was different than before
but it's simply nothing more

the whispering in the halls
echoes in my ears sayin'
all her
stupid little friends
and all her
stupid little comrades
they'd been pretending
they'd spent their lives right
they didn't understand
how four years went so fast

chorus
solo
chorus
Track Name: We're Outta Control by Outta Control
Don't go away
I'm here for you
It doesn't matter what they say
You and me together
We could be friends
You and me together
We could be friends
But not right now
But not right now

You are outta control
You are not giving up
You dodged the bullet of loneliness
You are outta control
You are not giving up
You dodged the bullet of loneliness

I wanna know
How do you feel
When I say
Do you wanna be my friend?

We are outta control
We are not giving up
We dodged the bullet of loneliness

We are outta control
We are outta control!
Track Name: Angry Minds by The Sophisticats
Verse:
Sink my teeth into a new dish
Sweet melodic sound, it's absolute bliss
Coursin' through my veins, my pupils enlarge
A magic so sweet must be a drug from the stars

Chorus:
Even broken pieces belong to a whole
Bridges to cross but no money for the toll
Even angry minds can mend a shattered soul
Bars that cage my feelings won't put me on parole

Verse:
Isn't that sweet, isn't that nice
Obviously doused in the most violent of spice
Isn't that cute, he isn't quite sure
That I'm the type of criminal he wants to endure

Chorus:
Even broken pieces belong to a whole
Bridges to cross but no money for the toll
Even angry minds can mend a shattered soul
Bars that cage my feelings won't put me on parole

Bridge:
She's the type of contra that you would have chose
Keeping you grounded as you stand on your toes

Chorus:
Even broken pieces belong to a whole
Bridges to cross but no money for the toll
Even angry minds can mend a shattered soul
Bars that cage my feelings won't put me on parole
Track Name: Candy by MEKS
Hear the guitar cords
Listen to the keyboard
Dance to the drum beat
And let the bass rock

Chorus:
Candy! It's the candy that we love
No one's gonna keep us from the candy
Candy Rock n' Roll tonight

Tell us a story
Let us feel the glory
Think about the ending
And please let it be

Chorus

Rap:
I want some candy, I want a Twix
I want sweets with a twist
My parents say no because it's so sugary
But I say, “Hey! I want some candy.”
I like candy so much I can never get enough

C-A-N-D C-A-N-D C-A-N-D-Y!
Track Name: Untitled by Through the Fire and Flames
<Rap Verse 1>
You've been comin' round here thinking that you're raw
But you don't know how we get down so you better get lost
We got the motivating sound that can make you move
We might be pretty on the outside but we'll take you to school.

<Chorus> 2x
Who are you to question me?
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!

<Verse 1>
I've been on this road for so long trying to make it my own song
I've been screaming and shouting for so long
I'm tired of being told I'm wrong

<Chorus> 2x
Who are you to question me?
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!

<Rap Verse 2>
I've been doing this thing before you had a clue
You just now figured it out but still don't know what to do
I got my super bass crew and we're coming for you
You try to hide in disguise but we know that it's you

<Chorus> 2x
Who are you to question me?
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!

<Verse 2>
Now it's time for me to move on
We've been going through this thing too long
Get out of here and get gone
You need to try to find you're own song

<Chorus> 2x
Who are you to question me?
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!

<Chant>
Through the fire and flame we rock!
Through the fire and flame we
Rock! 5x
Track Name: We are the Furious 5 by The Furious 5
The furious five are on the way
the furious five are on the way
to rescue the people in the house
the houses where the furious five go

The furious five went out for a drink
What did they get, what do you think
a Shirley Temple for Royal
a strawberry milk-shake for Charlotte
a root-beer float for Brooklyn
an apple cider for Jayla
and a sprite for Jordyn

Cause we are the furious
The furious five
Now that we are a team
We are a team, we are a team
Cause we are the furious five
Yes we are, yes we are
Track Name: Untitled by Evacuation
Chorus:)
Turn up the music
Let it play
We're gonna dance night and day
We are burnin' up the dance floor
We start a fire! 1234!
Evacuate! We're startin' a fire!

We could show you how to dance
You could even try to groove it
But nothing could compare to the way that we move it!

I listen, I hear, I do my own thing
This drabby party 'bout ta take a fling
With the superboss in a teenage dream
Everybody listen
I'm gonna scream
(repeat chorus)
Track Name: ILY by The X's
I'm trying to forget you
'Cause I know your love isn't true
Got my head in a knot, and it ain't comin' out
What am I supposed to do?
I'm trying, oh help me lord, I'm dying
I'm leavin' you at the door
And I ain't comin' back for more

'Cause the world keeps spinning round and round
But I won't let you pull me down
And I know its the wrong thing to do
But I just can't take my mind off you
'Cause I love you! I love you! I love you! I do.

I'm tryin' to get away from it all
'Cause you make me feel so small
And I guess you'll be there everywhere I go
But that can't happen anymo'
I'm tryin', oh help me lord, I'm dyin'
I'm leavin' you at the door
And I ain't comin' back for more

'Cause the world keeps spinning round and round
But I won't let you pull me down
And I know its the wrong thing to do
But I just can't take my mind off you
'Cause I love you! I love you! I love you! I do.

I saw you I couldn't believe
That someone could like you it wasn't a dream
So we hung out for a while
You said you liked my style
And that's where it started
And I knew you were big hearted

I thought you were it
But that was a phase
I'll pull my heart breaker kit out
'Cause I live without your praise

'Cause the world keeps spinning round and round
But I won't let you pull me down
And I know its the wrong thing to do
But I just can't take my mind off you
'Cause I love you! I love you! I love you! I do.
Track Name: Virus by Techno Gurlz
Connect the wires to the circuit-board

We're the Techno Gurlz
we're not gonna let a virus turn us down

(instrumental solos)

Techno Gurlz
