Track Name: Fighting Bull
Backbeat Soundsystem - Fighting Bull - 01

We can carry on the feeling ‘til the beats come alive, never winning if ya never try.
Now tell me if you feel it, tell me if you just don’t need it. But never tell me I should leave it.
We can always get-get gone, if we need to. We can take it step by step, no read through. We can put it all on a track, no preview.
We can get it all chucked back, weak review. Bring it to me.

Savor it all.
The fight, the fear, the rise, the fall.
A Promise to all.
You live, you learn, you love, you grow.

Carry on up on it ‘til that hook comes around,
Better yet never back down.
Tell me how you’d feel if you ever got dropped on the spot. Would you pick a new path, take it back to the top, yeah!
Step it up, I still rock it.
People work hard, but they’re not gonna top it, and then I tell ‘em. My one goal is the topic, and I’ll never feel on top ‘til I got it.

Savor it all.
The fight, the fear, the rise, the fall.
A Promise to all.
You live, you learn, you love, you grow.

Keep your dreams within a stone’s throw.
If you don’t try you will never know.
Remember just don't let go.
If you don't try you will never know.

Savor it all.
The fight, the fear, the rise, the fall.
A Promise to all.
You live, you learn, you love, you grow.
Track Name: Hey Girl
Backbeat Soundsystem – Hey Girl - 02

I wanna talk to you. Tell me all the things you want to do.
And baby, if it’s alright with you, I’ll share my hopes, my dreams, my feelings too.
I wanna dance with you. Hold your body close and feel you move
And baby, if it’s alright with you, I’ll share my hopes, my dreams, my feelings too.

Hey girl, I can take you out and we could spend a little time with one another, we could break it down.
And I mean no trouble; can it end in a huddle?
Let’s dance tonight, don’t leave with another.
Girl, you got me right where you want me.
Let’s face-to-face, no fun being lonely.
I'm just a choice and you are my only. Girl, tell me what ya like, come get to know me.

You are the one I want. You are.
You are the one I want you are. The one.

Now I know what to do. Hit the floor and see just how you move.
And baby, if it’s alright with you, I’ll share my hopes, my dreams, my feelings too.
I got to see this through. Let you know that I’m the one for you.
And baby, if it’s alright with you, we’ll be here skanking ‘til the night is through.

Hey girl. Let it all out, meet me in the middle.
Let me hear what you’re about, let me get a little
Closer, you won't play second fiddle.
You are not like the others, you are not just another girl. Cut to the chase, tell me what you’re after.
I can go after, anything ya ask for.
Tell me how you work, let me know what you stand for. ‘Til we fall out, let's step to the dance floor.

You are the one I want. You are.
You are the one I want you are. The one.

Well here’s a tale that sends shivers down my backbone. It won't wait ‘til you’re home, I'm gonna tell ya now.
It got tough and you moved on,
I got stuck, got it all wrong.
Now it's like I'm setting out the stage for my second appraisal. Well, that's the reason I brought you here.
No doubt, you’re about. I'm still up in the clouds.
No more time wasting.
‘Cause right about now.

You are the one I want. You are.
You are the one I want you are. The one.
Track Name: Against It All
Backbeat Soundsystem – Against It All - 03

We are not free. These choices they already made for me.
Turning the day into night, you see. TV, the media: it’s controlling me, woah no.

Don’t miss a trick. Catch up quick. You will end up doubting.
I keep my hands on my cards. I stick. This control is amongst us.
You can carry on among it, stuck in your ways. Did no one tell ya, time will tell ya, counting down your days.
Now ya hear about it when the broadcast plays. It seems the whole world is against us.

You know, I know. Good don’t come around to those who stand down.
You know, I know. We get a little, for that we give a lot.
You know, I know. Good don’t come around to those who stand down.
You know, I know. We get a little, for that we give a lot.

They will not see. Keep taking ‘til it’s gone but still they don’t believe.
The money they make won’t make them rich, you see.
Portraying their lies as the truth, well they don’t fool me, woah no.

We've all been told. So stand up tall.
This could end in thunder.
I’ll bring an army to walk with me.
They’re controlling a monster.
We wont carry on among it,
their luck’s run through.
I can show you where they find the people that they fool.
We don't have to abide, ‘cause they don't make the rules.
Let's get the whole World up against this.

You know, I know. Good don’t come around to those who stand down.
You know, I know. We get a little, for that we give a lot.
You know, I know. Good don’t come around to those who stand down.
You know, I know. We get a little, for that we give a lot.

Today won’t come again. Tomorrow won’t be the same. One day facts will be found. One day truth will come aloud.
Today won’t come again. Tomorrow won’t be the same. One day facts will be found. But that day, it could pass by just like that.

You know, I know. Good don’t come around to those who stand down.
You know, I know. We get a little, for that we give a lot.
You know, I know. Good don’t come around to those who stand down.
You know, I know. We get a little, for that we give a lot.
Track Name: I Spy
Backbeat Soundsystem – I Spy - 04

I spy with my weary eye, something beginning with fight.
I won’t lie. If this goes down tonight, not sure if it’s gonna be alright.

Well I spy, with my weary eye, something beginning with fight.
I won’t lie. If this goes down tonight, not sure if it’s gonna be alright.
And I spy with my bloodshot eye, rudeboy who’s looking to fight.
And I try, try as I might, but determined is the man who is unsatisfied, yeh.

Woah, this man is killing me. Physically. Mentally.
Woah, think what you’re doing to me, yeh. My Brother, violence won’t set you free.

The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.
The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.
And the war that you fight means nothing at all.
The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.

I spy with my weary eye, something beginning with fight.
As I lie, people pass me by. Not sure if it’s gonna be alright, yeh.
I spy with my bloodshot eye, rudeboy fading into the night.
And I try, try as I might. But helpless is the man with his life in his hands, yeh.

Woah, this man is killing me. Physically. Mentally.
Woah, think what you’re doing to me, yeh. My Brother, violence won’t set you free.

The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.
The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.
And the war that you fight means nothing at all.
The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the...

I don’t think you’d understand, oh man. Why’d you let go?
I don’t think you’d understand, oh man. Why’d you let go?
I don’t think you’d understand, oh man. Why’d you let go?
I don’t think you’d understand, oh man.
Woah, Why?

The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.
The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the wall.
And the war that you fight means nothing at all.
The taller you walk, the harder you fall. Now you’re back up against the… wall.
Track Name: Words Are The Weapon
Backbeat Soundsystem – Words Are The Weapon - 05

[Sample] – “If there is one principle I could emphasize, that is the most important principle in underlying the prevention of violence, it would be equality.
The single most significant factor that affects the rate of violence, is the degree of equality versus the degree of inequality in that society”

Don’t count me out, I’m not a number. Don’t push me down, I won’t go under.
Oh la la. Your words are the weapon and you don’t have to fight to be heard.
Don’t count me out, I’m not a number. Don’t push me down, I won’t go under.
Oh la la. Your words are the weapon and you don’t have to fight to be heard.

So if I tempt you, will I push a little-little?
Can I grind at you?
If I throw a little riddle, it'll find you.
Though you’re stuck with a numb skull. If there’s no sense, is there feeling?
I won't lie to you, I feel that I'm an honest man.
I tell it straight, and then again, if you don't understand.
I make my pocket change act more like a hundred grand. But like I'm after bad luck, I get it on demand.

I like my foes strong. I like my friends strange.
If I get the game wrong, I’ll make the rules change. Time to get up and push it,
I set the bar higher. Like it’s my last chance, I’m gonna get this set on fire.

Don’t count me out, I’m not a number. Don’t push me down, I won’t go under.
Oh la la. Your words are the weapon and you don’t have to fight to be heard.
Don’t count me out, I’m not a number. Don’t push me down, I won’t go under.
Oh la la. Your words are the weapon and you don’t have to fight to be heard.

If I keep on feeling like I'm feeling today,
Yeah, I ain't gonna take it, I'm gonna take it away.
I don't throw blame cause I want something to say. If there's no sense, there's no feeling.
It's been a long week, I got a lot on my chest,
And if I don't speak, man it just ain't gonna rest.
It’s gonna creep up when I’ve got somewhere to be, then I can't be responsible for what I may say.

I like my foes strong. I like my friends strange.
If I get the game wrong, I’ll make the rules change. Time to get up and push it,
I set the bar higher. Like it’s my last chance, I’m gonna get this set on fire.

Don’t count me out, I’m not a number. Don’t push me down, I won’t go under.
Oh la la. Your words are the weapon and you don’t have to fight to be heard.
Don’t count me out, I’m not a number. Don’t push me down, I won’t go under.
Oh la la. Your words are the weapon and you don’t have to fight to be heard.

Your words are the weapon, and you don’t have to fight, fight, fight.
Can I tempt you? If I push a little, little…
Can I tempt you? If I push a little, little…
Can I tempt you? If I push a little, little…
Can I tempt you, if I push a little, little, can I?
Track Name: Come Undone
Backbeat Soundsystem – Come Undone - 06

Lost swimming in the dead of night, we all drowning if we just give up the fight.
Cos it’s so rough man, being at the bottom.
When they’re filling up their pockets taking what they don’t own, yeh.
You got that feeling deep inside, yeh the one you hide.
You know something’s wrong but still you close your eyes.
One way ticket to a dead end street. You want the trees to grow, but yet you plant no seeds, woah.

If we don't step it up they'll run,
And I'll bet ya this will be the new crowd.
They'll push it out and about like it’s a new sound. It’s a harsh reality we live in, that's the grim truth.
Time to cut from the wealth, bring it for the youth.

Tell me, tell me,
Where do the wicked come from?
We let ‘em run. And if we let ‘em run,
We take full blame for the world as one, ‘til it comes undone.
Tell me, tell me,
Where do the wicked come from?
We let ‘em run. And if we let ‘em run,
We take full blame for the world as one, ‘til it comes undone.

It’s not easy being down this low, you know.
All take no give and you’re told that’s just the way it goes.
No more man. We won’t be downtrodden.
One day you will hear the voices of all those you’ve forgotten, yeh.
What makes you think you’re free?
You never tried to leave.
Illusion of choice, it’s all make-believe.
We place no value on the things we need.
Pumped full of lies and fear, until we cannot see, woah.

Listen, It should be the ones that go to do more than what they’re asked of. They should be the ones who go to get more than what they've asked.
Few own the many, maybe the reason of the downfall?
For they know that they possess the livelihood of all.

Tell me, tell me,
Where do the wicked come from?
We let ‘em run. And if we let ‘em run,
We take full blame for the world as one, ‘til it comes undone.
Tell me, tell me,
Where do the wicked come from?
We let ‘em run. And if we let ‘em run,
We take full blame for the world as one, ‘til it comes undone.

We fill up empty lives with things we don’t need, woah yeh.
We bite the hand that feeds, woah yeh.
What’s left for you and me?
Woah now. When it’s all gone will you believe?

Change is the new order
Pull it back, then run it from the top, while time and again we look away.
Rise up to a new day.

Tell me, tell me,
Where do the wicked come from?
We let ‘em run. And if we let ‘em run,
We take full blame for the world as one, ‘til it comes undone.
Tell me, tell me,
Where do the wicked come from?
We let ‘em run. And if we let ‘em run,
We take full blame for the world as one, ‘til it comes undone.
Track Name: Losing Faith
Backbeat Soundsystem – Losing Faith - 07

Well my momma said, if I try my hardest, be the bestest that I can be, then I'll get there. But I'm not sure, anymore, oh no.
And tell me why, all these things I do, and the love I give, well it's lost on you. ‘Cause you don't care, who’s out there, anymore, oh no.

And how long should I go before I know that I'm there?
And how long will it take before I wake from this dream, oh?
And how long can I wait? I'm losing faith in myself.
You got it. Yeh, I want it now. I need it, but I can't find it here.

Now I know what I want, I don't think I can get it.
Now I know what I need, but I try to forget it.

If I dig my deepest, sing the sweetest song I've ever sung, will I get there?
Well, so they say. But not today. ‘Cause everything's the same, oh.
And tell me why, if what you say is true, then my heart is broken. It's black and blue ‘cause it's not fair, that I don't care, anymore. Oh no.

And how long should I go before I know that I'm there?
And how long will it take before I wake from this dream, oh?
And how long can I wait? I'm losing faith in myself.
You got it. Yeh, I want it now. I need it, but I can't find it here.

Now I know what I want, I don't think I can get it.
Now I know what I need, but I try to forget it.

Yeah, you make a big impression on the people that you know.
You know you’re really winning when you make it on your own.
So, you know you'll struggle but you'll probably get it back.
Tricky, like a running wide load on a single track.
When you cut a tie, time is the name of the game.
You put aside, try to remain just the same.
I guess you’re in the same routine, rearrange.
Forget the old main aim. Make a change.

Now I know what I want, I don't think I can get it.
Now I know what I need, but I try to forget it.
Track Name: Forever Never
Backbeat Soundsystem – Forever Never - 08

Hey now, just let me explain. It wasn’t me, it was just part of my brain.
I can’t control it. Man, it drives me insane. Like a man in the desert yeh longs for the rain.
And I know I’m wrong but I keep singing my song, yeh. I let you down, I left you here to drown. In your tears all alone. And I’m sorry.

Some days we come correct, take the dream higher. Some ways we disconnect, spot a loose wire. Somehow we fall apart, like the truth, liar.
Come connect, we get hot like a bush fire.

Our love’s an island. What cha say, can I stay with you?
Forever will never be enough time with you.
Our love’s an island. What cha say, can I stay with you?
Forever will never be enough time with you.

Whoa no, can’t all be in vain. I couldn’t see what was right in front of my face.
And I can’t change it. I wish I had some restraint, ‘cause it’s a fool that thinks that love is merely a game to play. I try, for the life of me don’t understand why. I let you down, I left you here to drown. In your tears all alone. And I’m sorry.

Some days we come correct, take the dream higher. Some ways we disconnect, spot a loose wire. Somehow we fall apart, like the truth, liar.
Come connect, we get hot like a bush fire.

Our love’s an island. What cha say, can I stay with you?
Forever will never be enough time with you.
Our love’s an island. What cha say, can I stay with you?
Forever will never be enough time with you.

Every little thing I do is… Is better with you.
They say the world was built for two, yeh…I’ll share it with you.
Every little thing I do is… Is better with you.
They say the world was built for two, yeh.

Our love’s an island. What cha say, can I stay with you?
Forever will never be enough time with you.
Our love’s an island. What cha say, can I stay with you?
Forever will never be enough time with you.

Let’s live in this moment right here. I don’t want to live in no fear.
It’s a cold, cold world out there, babe. Need to feel the sunshine ‘pon my face. But I, I can’t seem to find no peace. I struggle with these feelings so deep.
But you, you make me feel just like new. There’s nothing else I want to do but…

But, I can’t seem to get no sleep. I got the feeling I’m in too deep. But now, I find my strength within you. There’s nothing else I want to do but…

Backbeat Soundsystem – Two Time

Fire burning in the sky tonight yeah.
Oh girl I think I seen the light yeah.

And now we’re moving under stars, so bright yeah.
We’re dancing under flashing lights yeah.
Oh girl I think tonight’s the night. I never thought it’d feel this right.

Yeah man, I call it crazy. You know it’s crazy.
