Track Name: All Around Me by Men in Tights
Chorus:
Bright lights
Dark nights
Strange sights
Sharp knives

Sitting down
Standing up
Here we go
I'm going crazy
Blacking out
Underneath
Feeling strange
Where to go now

Bright lights
Dark nights
Strange sights
Sharp knives
All around me
I want to go
Get me out of here

Sitting down
Standing up
Here we go
I'm going crazy
Blacking out
Underneath
Feeling strange
Where to go now

Chorus
Track Name: Anti-Barbie Doll by Chaos Corrupted
(Chorus)
You look so pretty today!!
No I'm not, no I'm not, I'm already sold
Too many standards I've been told
Economic reasons exploit my mind
Trapped tied down with hopes that bind
Why can't I be free
Why can't I just be

My reflection tells all
As I point out every flaw
Covered with makeup
Waist cinched small enough
Skin tight black dress
What a pretty mess
All my work will never be enough
All in all efforts wasted
To never be skinny
Skin will never be smooth
Hair is always so frizzy
New trends always so soon
I can never keep up
Why aren't I beautiful like them

Chorus

I even know what I should do
I already know what is true
Throw out the magazines
No more photoshopped crap
Slip on comfy shoes
No more vicious high heels
I can list more but I am too attached
In the end, too little manage
I can not be free
Too much self hate
Trapped by insecurities
Lead to a cursed fate
I am too afraid
Why aren't I strong like them?

Chorus
Track Name: Bad Day by Rock Paper Scissors
I woke up, I looked up, and bumped my head
I looked down, turned around, the alarm clock said
It's time to get up now and make my bed
It's too late, it's past 8, I'm up instead
I'm undressed, bad breath, mom's outside
She's beeping, I'm half dead, I have no ride
I'm outside, I can't hide, I have no life
School now, a fool now, I want to fight

CHORUS
I'm having a really bad day
Anyone who sees me is gonna pay
But all the exit signs tell me to stay
And all I want to do now is runaway

My friends are all eating, I want to sleep
I feel down, I'm bleeding, I need to pee
I have class, it goes fast, I'm really glad
The teacher gives homework, I'm really mad
Kids pass notes, I'm stuck in the middle
So I got detention, feel so little
I'm out, mom shouts, so I start to pout
Don't you, don't ask me, cause I'm done now

CHORUS
Track Name: Barbie by Sheered Sheep
A little girl with a complex mind
Soon enough she'll leave us all behind
Burning bright to no end
but why does she have no friends

So she dyed her hair
And changed her clothes
Got contacts so no one would know
That inside inside
she was so much more
than a poster child or a perfect girl

CHORUS
We're not the same
we need to be ourselves
not barbie dolls
On a dusty shelf
Too different too lovely for you
With no other options
What could she do

A little girl running out of time
Looking for a moment where she can finally shine
But do the world she is only seen
As a liar and an ice queen

CHORUS

That girl no longer is herself
She's a plastic doll,
Prim and proper on that shelf,
She lost the spark
That sun used to burn so bright
Now she collects dust
each day and night

She was so different
so lovely
Too special for us
Now she's nothing more than a girl
A victim of the press
Not she's gone, she's gone
So far away
And now she won't ever see another day
Track Name: Here and Now by Comic Smash
I wake up everyday
With a smile on my face,
Moving at my own simple pace.
I can't remember what happened yesterday,
Like I threw it into the deep water of the bay


'Cause I'm only living here and now,
Can't take it away from me
'Cause I'm only living here and now,
being only who I wanna be

I decide where I want to go,
Slow, slow, slow
Don't let anything pass by you these days


'Cause I'm only living here and now,
Can't take it away from me
'Cause I'm only living here and now,
being only who I wanna be

We're all moving in our own different ways
It will pay off in some ways someday

'Cause I'm only living here and now,
Can't take it away from me
'Cause I'm only living here and now,
being only who I wanna be
Track Name: Just Another Cheezy Love Song by His Name is Tina
You don't know why
you love him. You get
scared when he
crosses the room.
He never sees you,
you want him so
you do anything

Chorus
Oh no (x3)
In love (x3)
~Whale call~ (x5)

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Meals on the Bus by the Nom Noms
I'm so hungry I can't wait
I hope the right breakfast fills my plate
Maybe some oatmeal or french toast
I don't know
Muffins, orange juice or some apples
Bacon, melon or fruit salad
Leftovers from last night
And a glass of Snapple

(Chorus) Whoa oh oh!

What's for lunch, what should I eat
I'll have a salad to beat the heat
Maybe I'll take a trip down south
To get a taco for my mouth

(Chorus)

Dinnertime, I don't know
Maybe some green beans I can grow
I'll cross the Pacific for some miso soup
And some sushi with wasabi too

(rap) Yo I'm Kate the Great
When I opened my eyes my hunger couldn't wait
The fridge was stocked, I couldn't decide
Toast, pancakes, eggs that were fried?
A little bit of everything, that was enough
choosing my food is getting tough
Lunchtime came, my tummy's rumblin'
Went to the diner, saw cookies crumblin'
That's for dessert, I told myself
So I went to see the sandwich shelf
Cheddar, swiss, ham on rye
It was so hard to choose I started to cry
Had to go hungry, what a shame
But soon enough dinner came
Soup, steak, mashed potatoes
It's all so good my stomach grows
I'm pretty full but I'm not done
Dessert is a big warm hot cross bun
Ice cream, apple pie, brownies too
Cookies, cheesecake, it's too much to chew!
After that I've surely gained
But tomorrow morning I'll start again
Where's the beef?
Well that's us
And I hope you heard
THE NOM-NOM'S will have your coming back for thirds!

(Chorus)

WORD
Track Name: Monster Monster by Broken Record
I hear a rumbling, a strange grumbling
This night, doesn't seem normal
There's a monster in my closet
That's what I dream every night
I stare at my closet and click on my flashlight

Monster, Monster
He's growling tonight
Monster, monster
Get out of my sight!

I can't sleep with this beast
He's ready to feast!
I crawl under my sheet and my heart goes beat.. beat.. beat.

Monster, Monster
He's growling tonight
Monster, monster
Get out of my sight!

(Guitar solo)

I close my eyes and there he is... SURPRISE!
Track Name: One Day by The Silver Sounds of Rock
One day I, will do anything
One day I, I will be a star
One day I, will know everything
One day I, I will rock it hard

One day, but not today...
One day, but not today...
One day, but not today...

One day we will make the waters sing
One day everyone will listen to us
One day we will make the bells ring
One day we will be super-stars

One day, but not today...
One day, but not today...
One day, but not today...

One day I, will do anything
One day I, I will be a star
One day I, will know everything
One day I, I will rock it hard

One day, but not today...
One day, but not today...
One day, but not today...
Okay one day today
Track Name: Rock Out by The Fantastic Four
“We are the Fantastic Four & We're here to rock your world!”
Boys & girls, I'm gonna tell you a story about the lives of girls.

Chorus:
Girls are so awesome in so many ways, in so many ways that I just can't say.
Girls might pout, but they like to ROCK OUT, ROCK OUT!

Girls are smart and girls are strong,

Girls are pretty, girls are sweet.
Girls like sweets and girls like treats.
Girls are even really neat!

final CHORUS
Track Name: The Dream by The Dreamerz
I close my eyes and I think
About all of the people
without no home or food
I wonder what I should do
And I think and think
to see what I could do, so
I gathered up some people
and got donations for the poor

If I had one dream
I would be a millionaire
There will be stacks of million dollars
fly in the air
I close my eyes and I think
about all the people out there without no home,
food, or shelter, cause they might had
the dream as me, but for them to they
Must be the good people that we need

Hands up in the air
1 time if you love good music
Hands up in the air
2 if if you love Anna

I close my eyes and I think
About all of the people
without no home or food
I wonder what I should do
Track Name: They're Coming for Me by The Argument
I'm at my house on Halloween night.
It's pitch black and everything is silent. Then
I hear a sound, a scream, and then I realize,

(chorus)
They're coming for me,
They're coming for me,

I lay there frozen in shock,
I can't move a muscle, I'm so
scared, I try to hide
beneath the covers, and I
hear a creak. I know that

(chorus)

I lock all my windows
and I lock all my doors,
I hide under my bed,
but then I hear a roar

(chorus)

They climb through my
window and the open my door.
Track Name: Untitled by Burnt Sun
Hanging with my friends on a hot summer day.
In the pool with a colorful beach ball swimming free
I'm blowing with the breeze and a cold orange juice.

Chorus:
Never want summer to end! Just want to be with my friends! x3

Diving in dolphin style
My hands touch the bottom
I pop up like a popcorn queen
and I swim my way out!

Chorus
