Track Name: Low Profile
"Low Profile" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

(verse 1)

Microburst starts to break -
the system is down - it's handled all that it could take

Yes I know what I want -
Keep my profile low -
I won't ask too nice -
you can take this spot -

(verse 2)

This old town - is still the same - * -*
the way it should - and when I go
leave it that same way -

Yes I know what I got -
If you could hold - what it takes to
keep your brand on top - * - *

(bridge)

I'll try to wait - if you want
Maybe someday -
you will know whats wrong -

assumes a lot to me -
there you go -
try a soft landing -
my profile is low

(verse 3)

I keep the thirst so I can shake -
complacency is one friend that I will not make -

Yes I know what I want -
Keep my profile low
When least expected make
my mark -

(bridge)

I'll try to wait - if you want
Maybe someday -
you will know whats wrong -

assumes a lot to me -
there you go -
try a soft landing -
my profile is low
Track Name: DC to Memphis
"DC to Memphis" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

(start - guitars)

(verse 1)

oppressive heat in the city street
Waves surge - only to release
Humidity - * - *

Sit and sweat - and I contemplate -
When it's August and it's way too late -
to throw it away - * - *

{bridge}

if all is rolling -
Don't set it off - * - *
Rolling
yeah - back to my feet - * - *

(chorus)
DC and back- little to know - * - *
changing my plane - * - * I went alone - * - *
Game was a tie - we could have won - * - *
Back to the scene - rematch is on - *

***and were not gonna wait too long

(verse 2)

Didn't know it would take awhile -
Many stops and my head is on fire-
throbbing away

Dripping water from the top of ice
dropping quick - picking up in size - * - *
feels so great * - *

{bridge}

Well get it going
Don't set me off - * - *
DC to Memphis
yeah - I'm back on my feet - * - *

(chorus)

(chorus)
DC and back- little to know - * - *
changing my plane - * - * I went alone - * - *
Game was a tie - we could have won - * - *
Back to the scene - rematch is on - *
***and were not gonna wait too long
Track Name: Wave Ride Adventure
"Wave Ride Adventure" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

<verse 1>

Wicked is your only way to get to where you want to be -
Wearing your best clothes to shine - hoping to get right in line -
To your adventure scene -

<chorus>

Away goes - wave ride adventure -
Waves of jaded we ride -

<verse 2>

Planning each stop - medication might take your
tripping way too far -
Will we make it all the way or can we meet up somewhere

Away goes - wave ride adventure -
Waves of jaded we ride -

<bridge>

1 for the money
2 for the show
3 to get ready
4 to go
5 gettin tired..
6 of running around
is there something good
do you know where it
can be found?

<chorus>

Away goes - wave ride adventure -
Waves of jaded we ride -
Track Name: Lit
"Lit" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

I only feel this way when I'm all lit up
I'm chalky smooth - colors seem to change -
Gotta find a new avenue - * - * just for me and you -

(violins)

(musical hook section)

I only feel this way when I'm all lit up
sometimes it feels - never the same -
sometimes it feels - just the same - * - *

I only feel this way when I'm all lit up
when I see you smile then I'll be right there -
then I'll hold you close - and I'll stare at you -
will brush your check it'll be alright

I only feel this way when I'm all lit up
I'm chalky smooth - colors seem to change -
Gotta find a new avenue - * - * just for me and you -
Track Name: Way Too Far
"Way Too Far" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

Gotta break out of the zoo - will you help me too?
I don't know about you - gotta funny feeling -
Gotta break out of the zoo - will you help me too?
I can say what I know - gotta make it worth it -

Gotta run run way back way too far -
I can make it all alone when I really don't care -
Gotta run run way back way too far -
I can make it all alone -

Gotta break out of the zoo - will you help me too?
I don't know about you - gotta funny feeling -
Gotta break out of the zoo - will you help me too?
I can say what I know - gotta make it worth it -

Gotta run run way back way too far -
I can make it all alone when I really don't care -
Gotta run run way back way too far -
I can make it all alone -
Track Name: Keeping Pace
"Keeping Pace" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010


(Chorus A)
You put on a show - the masses scream -
Delivered right out - of speakers and screens -

It's like I'm reborn - the style is new -
Isn't a thing - the song can't do - * - *


(Chorus B)

where you gone? where you been?
to the farthest point - back again

The world drives - me into a mode -
and I reappear - from the cave that I go
Am I stuck in a rut? How I would I know -
It's the only thing that I've ever done
if I I can't sing - then I can't sleep -
and I can't breath - and I can't live

(bridge) - * - *
Track Name: Summer Never Ends
Summer Never Ends by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

{start}

(verse 1)

Frustrate the hell out of me -
see how quick it can be done -
I gotta try to believe -
Each chapter next can be won -
Don't go out there on your way -
Just come along for the show -
Create summer as we go -
and the anxiety -

{Chorus}

Summer Never Ends inside my mind -
and through my head -
I'll just keep on driving towards the sunset
on the hill -

(verse 2)

From the new to the old -
and back as fast as begun -
Through the pine tops of hills
and red rocks in tone -
Light shining ahead says -
here's the way you should go -
thats ok - I should know -
what stands in front of me -

try and escape from the world -
as much as I can -
Salt in the wounds can be cruel -
when the blister is bad -
Time heals it all in the end -
and thats one way to be sure -
And what time is it do you know?
Time that we believe

{Chorus}

Summer Never Ends inside our hearts-
in every human thread -
Try to keep on flying the purple sky
in endless bliss

{bridge}

Summer Never Ends when we share good times
With all our friends
we'll just keep the light on - and let it shine
let it shine
let it shine
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
"Tunnel Vision" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010
(verse 1)

I can get there if I tunnel vision -
I can never make it pay - * - *
Try to organize - man how time it flies -
I'm left fumbling in the breeze - * - *

(chorus)

Make me feel wise and stronger -
Hold my convictions longer -
Shelf all my doubts and fears -
Add up the many years - they show

(verse 2)

I can stay here and procrastinate -
So go on and just be that way -
Try to simplify - doesn't get me by -
I'm still drifting hopelessly -

(chorus)

Make me feel wise and stronger -
Hold my convictions longer -
Shelf all my doubts and fears -
Add up the many years - they show

(bridge)

I'm never down and out -
the game is getting late -
responsibilities stack up higher
on my plate

(verse 1 repeat)

I can get there if I tunnel vision -
I can never make it pay - * - *
Try to organize - man how time it flies -
I'm left fumbling in the breeze - * - *

(chorus)

Make me feel wise and stronger -
Hold my convictions longer -
Shelf all my doubts and fears -
Add up the many years - they show
on my face -
Track Name: RSS
"RSS" by Jesse Crawford ©®™Sodacon Music 2010

(verse 1)

I could go on all weekend trying not to think about you baby -
Tonight I was so lost and just bored - when I was sure -
I'd be stuck in the same old mess -

I should be hitting you up every day - the way I looked you up and
down several ways - if I could share a thought - about how I feel -
I should share with everyone -
I should share -

(chorus)

All the things I feel I can't compress -
When I'm at your side I'm so impressed -
If only I could say it to the rest -
I wish that I could stream in RSS -

(verse 2)

I could give up several bad habits -
Make you go from sad to smiling -
I could try to give this all up -
End up back on the stuff -
You'd be crying obscenities -
You'd be crying them out to anyone
who'd listen - blaming on me playing the
scapegoat again -
And if I still let you in - in spite of all this -
would you still put the knife in me?
I won't let you -

(chorus)

All the things I feel I can't compress -
When I'm at your side I'm so impressed -
If only I could say it to the rest -
I wish that I could stream in RSS -
