Track Name: If I Ain't
I get ahead of myself from time to time
part of the fear of getting left behind,
It wouldn't be the first time.

And talent only gets you so far,
It's power, and money, and bullshit
That make you a star.

If I know one thing about my struggle it's this,

If I ain't tryin then I'm dyin
If I don't give it my all tonight,
What's the point of having this mic in my hand?

My feet are tired,
My back is too,
But if I don't get though to you this is what I'm gonna do.

My Mama says that I don't deserve nothin
My Daddy hasn't said a word, he's still runnin

If I know one thing about my struggle it's this,

If I ain't tryin then I'm dyin
If I don't give it my all tonight,

My feet are tired.
My heart is broken and if I don't get these words spoken,
This what I'm going to do yeah,

If I ain't tryin then I'm dyin
If I don't give it my all tonight,
What's the point of having Jaedyn James in front of The Hunger,

If I ain't tryin babe, you know I'm dyin.

Track Name: Wantcha
You came into the room,
Two minutes after the doom,
Of realizing that I didn't know who from whom.

And then your eyes met mine from across the dance floor
And I knew that you'd be mine forever more.
I don't know your first name.
I just need your last,
So I know that this can be written in my past,

There's just this one thing,
There's just this one thing in my brain
It's driving me insane

It's that I wantcha
And I need ya
Like I never needed anything before,
You're the answer to the question,
And you'll never need your mama no more.

I don't know if you knew when you walked in
that our destiny was written in the stars
And you are my history
I don't know if you know how hungry I am,
I don't need another morsel,
Damn cause there's you.

There's just this one thing,
There's just this one thing in my brain
It's driving me insane

It's that I wantcha
And I need ya
Like I never needed anything before
You're the answer to the question
And you'll never be alone no more

Alto Sax Solo- Zane Parker
Tenor Sax Solo- Ben Hintz

And you'll never need your Papa no more.

Baritone Sax Solo- Kalen Keir

Cause there's just this one thing,
There's just this one thing in my brain,
It's driving me insane.

And you'll never need your mama no more

To feel a little bout yourself.

I only got one commandment and it goes,

I'm killin It

I was born under Jeffrey Dahmer,
He was born with an ugly hunger,
Too bad he was such a charmer,
Do you know what I'm talking about?

I'm the meanest queen in the town.
Mind your P&Q's or get down,
Off with his head,
That's how how I roll.

How to handle me anyhow,
My Daddy got up and ran away,

I'm killin it

Turns out you choose the bed you nap in,
Play hard, Work hard, and be
Yourself.

I have stolen, Been abused.
Evicted and left confused,
But you know what?

Whatever I got shot with,
I got back up and I walk with,
My chin, My chin a really high,

Cause I'm killin it

I'm killin it

Killin it
