Intro (done with talk box): Illegal Aliens - are comin' down on you Illegal Aliens - makin' a mess like you do Illegal Aliens - are comin' down on you Illegal Aliens - don't care what they put me through People say that I might be crazy but I don't know what to do A green fireball fell from the sky and it landed outside of my view I tried to follow but it's hard to do in a crowded city drivin' a car so I went on home and turned on the news They said it was a falling star Universal truths we've yet to find Sub-atomic particle beams — guaranteed to blow your mind! Ya gotta have an I.D. or passport to even board a plane Aliens come and go as they please and it's drivin' me insane! Little green men that shift their shape when they see you enter into the room Everyone else just looks the other way They're like zombies, wrapped in coccoons! Universal truths we've yet to find Sub-atomic particle beams — guaranteed to blow your mind! Ya gotta have an I.D. card or a passport to even board a plane Aliens come and go as they please and it's drivin' me insane! Illegal Aliens are movin' into my space Don't wanna be politically correct— get 'em outta my place – get 'em outta my face, oh yeah Drivin' down my property value—they're up to no good Illegal Aliens – "Now there goes the neighborhood!" Universal truths we've yet to find Sub-atomic particle beams — guaranteed to blow your mind! Ya gotta have an I.D. or passport to even board a plane Aliens come and go as they please and it's drivin' me insane!

"TAKE ME BACK" David Calhoun and Kevin Simnacher/©2011 SimRocker Publishing (BMI). All rights reserved. Take me back, take me back, to a time when we were young Take me back, take me back, to a place where we had fun We didn't have much money, but it didn't matter anyway We used to run around outside, it was just another beautiful day WHen the sun went down and the lights came on, We knew it was time to go home With the thoughts and dreams of what tomorrow brings It was just another day to roam Take me back, take me back, to a time when we were young Take me back, take me back, to a place where we had fun We'd spend our days with family and friends, or just drivin' down the road Stop at Otis' store and get a few things more just before he would close I remember the day when we got a phone line and I loved to hear it ring There was nothin' to say but it was used every day, but to my Mamma it was everything. Take me back, take me back, to a time when we were young Take me back, take me back, to a place where we had fun The times did change and lives got rearranged with some gone, but not forgotten. My Mamma cried when my Daddy died and I watched her hit the bottom It wasn't long before my Mamma was gone and the years just flew on by The question's the same every time there's a change with people asking God, "Why?" Take me back, take me back, to a time when we were young Take me back, take me back, to a place where we had fun

"GYPSY GIRL " Kevin Simnacher/©2011 SimRocker Publishing (BMI). All rights reserved. In the heat of the night - there's a strange dark gypsy girl With long black hair - she stops and stares with her eyes of green, she looked right through me She caught my gaze - that's how she captured me with her spell All it took, was just one look one glance, and then she was gone. She's a strange dark gypsy girl Where did she go? Into the night. She's the strange dark gypsy girl who left, without a trace Now she's just a memory I can't forget her face. I keep searching for that gypsy girl It's gonna take some time Someday I'm gonna find her again I wanna make her mine... She's a strange dark gypsy girl Where did she go? Into the night.

"TIME TO REST MY BRAIN" Kevin Simnacher/©2011 SimRocker Publishing (BMI). All rights reserved. My radio is dead and I can't call you on the phone Something in my head cries out for you when I'm alone I've been waiting all this time for freedom of depress The bills aren't paid, but I'm ready to leave for a chance of some success I don't know where you are going All I know is it's insane Give me time to think it over Give me time to rest my brain Why can't you give me the time of day you're planning to arrive? Must you be so shy at first—I'm only 25 I'm not really all that old—you're as young as you feel Grandma Moses hear my cry—I plead insanity I don't know where you are going All I know is it's insane Give me time to think it over Give me time to rest my brain Instrumental section I don't know where you are going All I know is it's insane Give me time to think it over Give me time to rest my brain I can hear the whistle blow - it tells me when to stop Triple lives can lead to death when you're living at the top Lifting weights you've never done—you could break your back Hold the water in the dam - put your finger in the crack

"JOHNNIE" Daniel J. Boddicker, Kevin Simnacher/©2011 SimRocker Publishing (BMI) All rights reserved. The soldiers in blue run to the attack knowing that they might not ever come back and the Ice Man laughs as Winter is drawing near. The soldiers in gray run into the fray trying to drive the blue soldiers away and the Ice Man laughs as he begins his attack on the rear. The dying died and the wounded cried and everyone else got tired of the fight which all turned towards the Ice Man's lines. Johnnie left home when just a young man but when he came home he was an old hand at fighting and killing and maiming his fellow man. Searching, he's been searching so long—hoping for a place where he can run Searching, he's been searching so long—trying to find a place to hang his gun. Summer finally came but the killing went on no matter what he did Johnnie couldn't get warm it felt like the cold was just tearing him apart. The day that Johnnie met his death he realized with his final breath that the Ice Man was only the hatred in his heart. Searching, he's been searching so long—hoping for a place where he can run Searching, he's been searching so long—trying to find a place to hang his gun.

"SKY IS FALLING" Kevin Simnacher/©2011 SimRocker Publishing (BMI) All rights reserved. TThe sky came crashing down on me I’m lying on the floor All my dreams and heartaches They don’t matter anymore. Won’t someone come and save me from this miserable plight? I don’t know if I can make it through the darkness of the night. I didn’t see it coming I should have read the signs. It’s too late now to go back home I’m gonna lose my mind. Sky is falling. You better run for cover Sky is falling. You gotta keep on crawling Sky is falling. You better run for cover Sky is falling. You gotta keep on crawling You gotta RISE to meet another day. Gotta cut through all this confusion Sort though all this mess Find out what really matters In this life—this mortal quest. It’s a time for some reflection from deep within the soul I can hear it calling me now—louder than before. Was I simply just too busy with things that waste my time? This life’s too short to squander how could I be so out of line? Sky is falling. You better run for cover Sky is falling. You gotta keep on crawling Sky is falling. You better run for cover Sky is falling. You gotta keep on crawling You gotta RISE to meet another day. BRIDGE: Sky is falling You know the sky is falling The sky is falling Sky is falling (solo section) Peel away the layers of years of toil and pain Taking back our freedom to feel alive again. It’s a time for our renewal a time to change the course We choose the way that lifts us to our everlasting source. It’s a rhyme to fill your purpose in everything you do you’ve still got time it’s not too late to find the real you. Sky is falling. You better run for cover Sky is falling. You gotta keep on crawling Sky is falling. You better run for cover Sky is falling. You gotta keep on crawling You gotta RISE to meet another day..

Verse 1: A brief mishap with the family cat made him vanish - into thin air I thought he crawled up in the chim-a-ney but when I looked, he wasn't there. Now I've read some things on the internet That explain this phenomenon... Kitty must've found him a WORMHOLE and if that's true, he's GONE! Chorus: I wanna build me a TIME MACHINE... Go back and do it over again— I'd get all of my work done and still have time to goof off with my friends! Verse 2: A It’s a THEORY of RELATIVITY of bending space and time— Vortex twisting, cosmic strings and things that do not rhyme I’d like to go back and re-visit all my loved ones who have passed.

"Window of Opportunity" Kevin Simnacher/©2013 SimRocker Publishing (BMI). All rights reserved. Verse 1: From the moment your lungs took in that first breath there was something inside you giving you life full of wonder Somewhere along the way, forces came to crush you pushing you down, down, down. You lost sight of your dream. The spark faded away. Chorus: Now I can see an opportunity. Faith fires the soul, and we all have to find it. Take a look around, just don't look down. Close the door and there's more— just look through the window.... Verse 2: There must be something more to this life than pressure from peers—the constant strife It's pushing you down. And somewhere deep inside, a voice is telling you you were born to do more than this, Take a chance, you've got one life to live... (step forward...) Chorus: Now I can see an opportunity. Faith fires the soul, and we all have to find it. Take a look around, just don't look down. Close the door and there's more— just look through the window.... Bridge: Now I can see There's a window of opportunity Faith fires the soul— there's no way to deny it and we all have to find it. (repeat) (Spoken, megaphone voice): This is your window of opportunity The time is now. Take it. Or lose it. Chorus: Now I can see an opportunity. Faith fires the soul, and we all have to find it. Take a look around, just don't look down. Close the door and there's more— just look through the window.... Close the door and there's more— (Spoken): Nothing is static. The universe is in constant flux. Life is a series of "Windows of Opportunity" Don't miss yours.
