Big Steps
When you walk on the moon take big steps, big steps/when you walk on the moon take big steps, big steps/when you talk to the Gods use big words/when you think to yourself think big thoughts/and soon whoa whoa ooo, whoa whoa, oooo/when you feel kinda down just rise up, rise up/when you’re kicked to the ground just rise up, rise up/when you sink really low rise higher/when there’s nowhere to go, rise higher/and soon/c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, take big steps, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon/c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, just rise up, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon/I’m on fire/shoobeeduop -written by Jill Considine,/Lisa Pimentel/Bob Marlette

I Don’t Want It
His hands are baby soft, so boss/he’s coughing, I think he’s sick/the audience, we’re listening close to cause for his effect/his mouse a loaded gun, he’s firing with anonymity/and we go down down…/I don’t want it, I don’t need it, talk about it gotta feed it/take your stupid, your diseases, I don’t want it, I wont eat it/I don’t want it/his fingers spitting ripples from his sagging sinking sorry couch/he’s in a dark room, in a small town, in a secret house/the audience, were tuning in, ‘cause we can't help ourselves/and we go down-written by Lisa Pimentel

Welcome to the World
Pay the price to choke the life/your teacher loves you best/your might a bull, your cup so full, you’re better than the rest/play like him and play to win, until there’s no one left/you’re out of control/hey/world, welcome to this world/low life scum, your two-five-ones will put you in the game/among the sharks and know-it-alls, punk rock is it to blame?/you smell yourself, but you can’t tell, if it’s love or shame/your out of control/hey-written by Lisa Pimentel

Hold Tight I’m Flyin’
A little defensive when you ask her why/a little bit prickly, afraid of lost time/a dreamer, a cleaner, awake and alive/at times makes you laugh so hard that you could cry, when she tries to speak from the heart/hold tight to pride stop cryin’, I’ll stay home, I’m dyin’/oh/I don’t really bite/don’t wanna bite/one day we’ll stop fighting, pushed out, afraid but flyin’/oh/I’ve done good tonight/a little bit, a little afraid/her bad and her good are American made/she likes your idea, but don’t stand in her way/at times makes you not sure of what you should say/when she tried to speak from the heart- written by Lisa Pimentel



Take my Heart
Serious about us/I swear you know you make me feel rebellious/Blow my up make me buff/Let's illuminate the night time/Take my heart I really want to wrap my arms all around you/Take my heart I wanna give it to someone someone someone Just like you/a little nuts a lot of luck/don’t wanna suck Im nervous but I’m so excited/for the love more than show up/sweat and cuss I feel the love /I'm so delighted -written by Lisa Pimentel

Jerk Song
What a con what a don’t what a doomer/suck it up sink it to the floor/take you down make you frown you’re a spooner/such a shame so lame am I a loser?/hell no I’m headed for the door/might fall “might get up slow” but I’ll get up for sure/full of importance full of entitled so independent in a little denial/oh, and such a jerk such a jerk such a jerk such a jerk/you’ll get your way ‘cause you’re a jerk/I’m a woman I’m a heaven I’m a super/I’m a winner I’m a take it all/so take your shame take your games take your bruiser/a lot of heart a lot of spirit lot of future/fill me up and make me feel so good/might stutter might mumble might choke/but I’ll speak up for sure/you want attention you want it your way/and did I mention that you’re totally outraged –written by Lisa Pimentel

Machine
Thought I had it all figured out/saw my purpose in the crevices of the everyday/thought I had it all under control/set up my life in neat little rows..in neat little rows/find myself than let it all go/It’s time to make some trouble/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/whoa I, gotta keep my machine movin’/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/my machine movin’/my machine movin’/thought I had all figured out/knew what my life was all about and then I let it be/to reinvent or let it all go/my question’s not the problem/just sit still, it’ll be alright/I’m the only one left to fight/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/whoa I, gotta keep my machine movin’/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/my machine movin’/my machine movin’/find myself than let it all go/It’s time to make some trouble/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/whoa I, gotta keep my machine movin’/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/my machine movin’/my machine movin’/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/whoa I, gotta keep my machine movin’/and I, I’ve got that feelin’ again/my machine movin’/my machine movin’ - written by Joanie Pimentel

I See You Cryin’
I came by the other day, you were sitting all by yourself/looks like you might have lost your best friend, you had no hope in your heart/now you’re so sad, why you so sad, how did you get so sad?/I know there’s a hurt in you, honey it’s just too big to touch/just like a white hot flame, it’s too hard to get at/now you so low, why you so low, how did you get so low?/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you/every once in a while you hope and wish that things would go your way/you might just figure out this is only temporary/now you so mad, why you so mad, how did you get so mad?/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you//I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you cryin’ cryin’ cryin’ cryin’/I see you/ - written by Joanie Pimentel

Never That Far
Right up the road just a little bit/around the corner honey/reach out your hand sugar, I’m never that far from you/pick up the phone if you want to/or send a note or two/there's never a bad time, I’m never that far from you/never, never that far away from you/I’m never, never that far, I’m never that far from you/and on a sunday morning/and if you’re feeling lonely, reach out your hand sugar I’m never that far from/whatever is troubling you honey, I’ll help you find the answer/there’s never a bad time, I’m never that far from you/never, never that far away from you/I’m never, never that far, I’m never that far from you/yeah yeah yeah… - written by Joanie Pimentel

Take it Away
Give it up for the workin’ girl, all alone in a crowded world, so busy, so worried/savin’ up for the one day off, call it in before you’ve had enough, forgetful, forgive me/sing, smile, it’s tradition, sexy, styling, your admission, ticket taker, I’m no faker/take it way, take it away, all that’s done, all that’s made up of love and mistakes/take it away, take it away, all that’s gone, all my strength at the end of the day/give it up for the topsy turv, feet flat on a not so sure, I’m dizzy, I’m falling, all I want to do is run away, not now I’ve got bills to pay, I love you, I love you/sink,swim, you’ll get dirty, blood and guts and well past thirty, ticket taker, I’m no faker/turn it up before the song is done, far away with my earphones on, turn away when you talk like that, talk back but I’m not a brat, stop laughing, stop laughing -written by Lisa Pimentel/Joanie Pimentel/Bob Marlette
