Track Name: Dice Roll Your Heart 2014
Verse 1:

I got dice for days and the cards to play any master coming my way
Magic I'm gathering they call me the man D&D DM campaign plan
Any combination of dice you need, come prepared twenty, 13, six up my sleeve
Go ahead and pull out your character sheet, sit back, relax, and let me spin a story
We got Birthright, Blackmoor, Castlemourn, Exodus, Kara-Tur, Eberron
Take your pick for a setting, I come equipped, handle rogues, dwarves, wizards without a script
I ain't strictly steampunk or fantasy based, I like a little sci-fi when it's interlaced
Whatever leads to the tavern with you, roll these dice, spend a night or two.
You have the Dragonlance to my heart, a Council of Wyrms couldn't keep us apart. In the world of Faerun, they Neverwinter Nighted me;
Don't care about that will you spend the night with me?
I know I'm being a tad bit forward, you just joined as a human sorceror
Cause I left all the saving throws for you, I guess that's why I'm getting the eye from my crew

Pre-Chorus:

Dice roll me…
Dice roll me with your heart…

Chorus:

It's like a +3 enchant of the heart
Nothing you do can tear me away from you
Baby, we're here from beginning to end
Take my hand, start this campaign again
I can take us anywhere we want to go
(Launch your magic missiles)
T ake the dice and give them a roll
(Into my heart)
Me and you facing hordes and mobs
Double teaming, doing a helluva job
With our love we can't be stopped
On the charts, we're always on top


Verse 2:

Now what they told me was that this was Arabian
Nights like a story, Legends in The Dark
Going back to the Homelands
Swamps to plains, like Mirages
Not much to gain
You're the queen, I play the king
That's our thing, insta-spell tapping
Sorcery, I guess that's the key
Abilities, a little planes walking
Might be hexproof, read the reminder text, boo
You know me, artifacts in the mix
So much mana got that Black Lotus fix
I could sit here and talk sets for days
But let's be honest you were already amazed
My starter came with a TimeWalk or two
So I'll use them to go back in time for you, c'mon
Track Name: Class Act
Hah, baby boo. You're a class act, you know that? That's why this one's for you.

What's up gamer girl, frag and brag tatted on that arm for real
Gamer score on a six digit record pace
Adding accolades to that gaming space
Shit talking dweebs think all they face is
A newbie sitting in their tweens when they really facing the queen
Rage-a-holic when you wanna, got a chance to pull a stunna
Crushing skulls like a premium gunna (Shit)
You made the Locus your bitch
Like a cure for the itch of zombies or head crabs trying to leave you for dead
On an island, it's like a postcard motherfucker, he screamed from the balcony
Shared over rum and teas and comic movies and stumbling things
Nose ring, blondy, barely five foot three, wearing skater tees
And in that moment we see eye to eye, gotta go co-oping all night
And Covenant stand no chance when we're on that high
A little reaching for the sky, plasma fire goes by
And you're my gamer girl
What a night
What a night

A class act, look at how well you stack
Can't nobody touch you
When we're back to back
Back to back
Back to back
You and me, gamer girl
You and me, gamer girl

A class act, look at how well you stack
Can't nobody touch you
When we're back to back
Back to back
Back to back
You're a class act
You're a class act

I mean this is about those long nights of gaming, you know, when we're sitting there just sharing a moment. I wouldn't want anyone else slaying these fools with me. That's real.

Doesn't matter the game, just pick up and play
Grab controllers from new to old
It ain't bold, cause you know what you're doing, ain't busy fooling
Too busy schooling, cooling fools who don't know what they're doing
Sitting in their own drool and stool hah
It's like a heart attack watching you do your business
Ain't no damsel in distress, keep pace with everyone else
Out doing half these dumbwit dipshits on the internet
Yet somehow barely garnering half the respect
I would trust you with my life no matter the situation
Pitter patter in my chest is the latest sensation
And you can trust me no matter the campaign
I'll take the aim, be your back up man, be your wings again so you can achieve gain and believe again

A class act, look at how well you stack
Can't nobody touch you
When we're back to back
Back to back
Back to back
You and me, gamer girl
You and me, gamer girl

A class act, look at how well you stack
Can't nobody touch you
When we're back to back
Back to back
Back to back
You're a class act
You're a class act
Track Name: From Subwoofer to the Heart
One of those inconspicuous meetings
Nobody paying mind to the casual proceedings
A couple tentative glances
Brown eyes touched with golden grace stances
All the players are taking their places
Chessboard faces, king and queen stations
And without a single reproach, we got close
Cleared the board, make the music
Bass and treble, let’s go

She’s got the beat of my heart
The subwoofer to make my tweeter start
She’s like a boombox on your shoulder, fam
An MP3 player with the latest jams

The girl, the song
Stacked with beats and melodies
Digi charm, acoustic throng
Treble clef on the edge of a breath
Got my heart palpa-palping 3 by 4
Blood till nothing left
Struck by her F A C E
High E as her bars takin’ over me
Perfect package for that download stream service
Spotted her Spotify, she’s my Last FM, kinda nervous

She’s got the beat of my heart
The subwoofer to make my tweeter start
She’s like a boombox on your shoulder, fam
An MP3 player with the latest jams

You know what I’m talking about
Need her close like a new pair of in-ears

Got the bass, make it thunka, thunka, thunka
Bottom end S curves for the win in the trunka
My car, paint towns red near or far
She’s a full accompaniment at the club or bar
Can’t be alone for the rest of my life
She lifts me up, not from the breast but like a wife
Gonna do the same, put the test to this mic
Step up with the truths like the lies are a knife

She’s got the beat of my heart
The subwoofer to make my tweeter start
She’s like a boombox on your shoulder, fam
An MP3 player with the latest jams
Track Name: Red Shoes
Intro:
I’ll be your red shoes
Nothing can stop you
Loop to loop, sailing
Emerald everything

Verse 1:
Emerald everything
Lace ‘em up
Shine ‘em pup
Speed demon with a taste for the gleam and
Get ready for adventure where dreams are cast
Adventure in Emerald Coast, orca smash
Green Hilling the last of the last
Roses and Angels, danger zones
Casinos are where love blooms
I’ll get you round walls, a spiral or two
Don’t need knuckles or tails
Just these shoes to sail

Light waves pause to admire you
I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes
Your red shoes

Eggmen can’t stand in our way
When we got this
It’s all a bit of play
Swerve, burn, turn, on the head of a pin
Learn, curve, press Start to begin
Rev mode for the win

Bonus stage, we’ll crash too
Chaos is our tool
I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes

Verse 2:
You’re flame shielded, I’m flame retardant
Bubble breath, underwater city
No match, the sneaks work harder
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
Floating palaces in the clouds
Oil fields -- no matter, we’re on a roll
You don’t even have to climb up the side of mountains
No need to stress about mechs, we collapsing titans
You can snowboard every now and again
But the speeds I’m achieving will be the ones to get you to the ends
No loops, no phrases
Not convoluted statements, proclamations
Can make us stop, we’re on the spot
Down mine shafts, around the world or not
Over, under, and through this plot

Light speed my boo
Cherish my speed rules
I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes

Yeah, I know you heard me
Red shoes got you blurring
Don’t color me any other color
None of the rest are worthy
Just look at all the copy cats
They’re salty they can’t usurp me

This world can’t stop you
Not with me on your feet boo
I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes

Diamond dash to the end of the stash
Coming through like a beast, ready for the smash
And grab, grab and stab, stab and jab, it ain’t bad
Cause we’re going in the opposite direction of loss
Give it a toss to the top of the pot
People want us to stop, we’re a little bit hot
I guess they’re mad we’re everything they’re not
Everything they’re not
Everything they’re not
Everything they’re not
I’ll be your shoes
You can’t get rid of me that easy
Waiting for you
At the front door when it’s time to leave
It’s true
That when you got something
Soulmates a time or two
The reason why I’m your speed shoes

Red and white, stays true
Hyper powers for you
I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes

If you can’t tell by now through this sonic sound
I’ll do anything when your feet hit the ground
Don’t have to ask me twice, cause I’ll be nice
Heel to sole, I’ll save your life

I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes
I’ll be your red shoes
I always loved you
Loved you
Loved you
Loved you
Track Name: Nebulae of Light
Intro:
Through the wreckage and debris
Neural networks of uncertainty
Like a Tron clone from a 7th dimension TARDIS mystery
The last of my kind, Gallifraeyan
You think I'm playing
Climbing towers like Donkey Kong
We can't do nothing wrong

Hook:
Our love shone as bright as a million stars tonight
Those galaxies, like spinning nebulae of light

Verse 1:
In the arms of Eagles
Sent to rescue the regale
To compare you to my precious
Not like Mr. Smeagle
Cross Mordor’s Mt. Doom
Traverse the Temple of Doom
Even have my heart removed
Won’t stop me getting to you
You had the blaster, a destruction master
They called you mini-disaster
And “back to back” you know
That we’d be that class act
Harkens back to the old tracks
Like a D.O.R.K. in fact
Coming ready and willing and able
Metal Gear all on the table
Forge, Bishop, or Cable
Leap to the future to save you
I’m Russell Crowe and you’re my Phoenix
Gladiator down the River Styx
Kratos to Athena
Familial dust on bloody skin dreamer
I couldn’t even think of another way I’d want to be
Except perhaps your Romeo love suicide tragedy

Hook:
Our love shone as bright as a million stars tonight
Those galaxies, like spinning nebulae of light

Verse 2:
They called me G.E.E.K. and N.E.R.D.
Along with a million and one verbs
But there you were just like Hitchcock’s birds
Putting fear in the spines of the herd
The hordes, breaking the walls that the great adored
Barriers Bill Gates’ can’t afford
And when you were bored
You lifted me up via your magic
And there you have it, the reasons weren’t tragic
There wasn’t a great loss
Just an open heart that didn’t close off
Just a grand and great lift off
Spinning among the stars like a Neil Degrasse
Passing the rings of Saturn with an ounce of class
Andromeda is our favorite star map
Looking up with Hubble’s Deep Field stats
Love can’t be all that bad when you put it like that
I guess there’s a reason that even with time travel
I would never go back

Hook:
Our love shone as bright as a million stars tonight
Those galaxies, like spinning nebulae of light
Track Name: The Situation
Verse 1:
Love is a tricky situation, you never know the feeling unless it's taken out of the equation
Contemplation of the degradation to emotions, c onsternation
From pure debasing and change in pacing
Well, it's like a moment that's lost its flow
Lock and load, ended without a common goal
And then you'll find it steals your soul
Hollows you out and leaves you beaten like the common cold
You're fucked up and have nowhere to go
Alone, chilled to the bone, they play the same songs
To remind you that you lost your home
But you can't return that glass heart
It's already shattered and took away the only thing that mattered
The beating and the blather, the rinse and the lather
Wiping tear stained cheeks like you feelings ever mattered
And this should serve as an example
That your love never gave ample
Reason to be more than just a little sample

Pre-Verse 2:
A morsel
Or maybe moreso, the hole left in your torso

Verse 2:
You gave it a minute because you thought you could win it
Reached into the bag of tricks but you can’t prevent it
It’s the way of the world to use you and abuse you
Discarded for the fairer moment like truth’s blind view
Meaning nothing to one isn’t nothing to all
But distance and time can only resolve
Diabolical feelings and calls that could lead you wrong
A hell bound tunnel of loneliness that nothing can solve
The moment the music enters your soul
The moment you let yourself fight for control
The moment you knew your pivotal role
The moment you realized there is no longer a hole
The moment you climbed from depression
The moment you fought for singular possession
The moment you claimed what’s rightfully yours
The moment the world let your angel wings soar
You can not be worthless.

You have to let her go, you're no longer needed.
Just remember when you're there, you're there for a very specific reason.
You have to get them out of the hole, but then you leave them.
And by the end of it all, they forget that you’re even needed.
But that's okay, you walk away
You return home and watch them play
You know they're loved, snuggled up in warm hugs
And as corny as that sounds
That's what we all want from the ones we love
But love is a tricky situation, you never know the feeling unless it's taken from the equation
Contemplation of the degradation to emotions, consternation
From pure debasing and change in pacing


We go where we want to... we'll fall where we need to... we'll never know the end of the road unless we travel it... unless we travel it.
