Track Name: Can't Hold Me Down
Fire from a rocket, bulb in the socket, sparks flying off of my shoes
Hands get to shakin', chances I'm takin', heart is beating true
Pistol in my pocket, voices saying stop it, but I'm not hearing you
Mama raised a fighter, fists are getting tighter, red blood turns to blue

Can't hold me down, thrashing the ground, fire in my belly, just can't hold me down
Can't hold me down, deafening sound, better be ready, just can't hold me down, just can't hold me down

Rolling like a boulder, chip on my shoulder, blowing like a hurricane
Immigrant blood, swollen like a flood, coursing through my veins
Grittin' my teeth, planting a seed, hatching up a plan
Circuit's rewired, can't be getting tired, time to be a man
Track Name: Can You Find a Spirit
Twist the top off my head and peak inside
Put me in one of your magic machines
Shoot me with your x-ray beams
Tell me, what do you see?

Can you find a spirit, or am I just this ol' bag of bones
Can you find the energy, or am I just flesh and blood
Can you find a spirit, or am I just this ol' bag of bones
Tell me, am I really just flesh and blood

Place your electrodes on my head
Hook me up and watch my waves
Fill your needle, pierce my veins
Your radioactive dye is in my brain
Tell me, what do you see?

I beg you, I summon you to this place
I need a sign to believe
Shine your light upon my face
And shower me with your grace
Track Name: Can't Shake You
I put the thought of you in a box
Then I added a few heavy rocks
Drove up to the bridge and let go
And watched it drop

I can't shake you, can't shake you, oh I can't shake you
Can't shake the taste of you off my lips
I can't shake you

It's like waking up from a bad dream
Feels so real like a silent scream
Chest is hollow I can barely swallow
But it's not what it seems

They say when you lose a limb, you can still feel the pain
I got the itch and ooh I wanna scratch it, but it's all in my brain
I'm seeing double, I'm in trouble, white-knuckled insane
A desert flower praying for your rain
Track Name: Shut Down
Wavelength is funky, scent is foul
Eyes are watering, nose drips down
Fever sweat in the bedsheets, swimming for shore
Riptide pulling across the floor

Never had a chance
Forget about romance when the heart shuts down

Got my hopes up, burned at the stake
Coming in here, big mistake
Fever sweat in the bedsheets, swimming for shore
Riptide pulling across the floor

Never had a chance
Forget about romance when the heart shuts down
Track Name: Bonus Track: Can't Shake You >> Transformation >> Vortex
I put the thought of you in a box
Then I added a few heavy rocks
Drove up to the bridge and let go
And watched it drop

I can't shake you, can't shake you, oh I can't shake you
Can't shake the taste of you off my lips
I can't shake you

It's like waking up from a bad dream
Feels so real like a silent scream
Chest is hollow I can barely swallow
But it's not what it seems

They say when you lose a limb, you can still feel the pain
I got the itch and ooh I wanna scratch it, but it's all in my brain
I'm seeing double, I'm in trouble, white-knuckled insane
A desert flower praying for your rain

[crack up]
[unconscious trance state]
[wakes up]

Come over here little girl
Give your curls a twirl
Look into my eyes
We're gonna fly
My stones
My love
Runs deep
It's yours to keep

Step into the Vortex
