I’m a fox a sneaky little rockin’rollin’ fox My life’s a funny little pounce Chasing butterflies all day long Who cares if I’m small? I’ll learn and grow Can’t wait for tomorrow Every day comes new I can run, I can hide I can hunt, I can spy CHORUS I’m hunting today For the first time If I don’t get food I’ll be in a mood I can run, I can hide I can hunt, I can spy I’m about to pounce Pounce! CHORUS

CHORUS We are the craziest people in town Listening to loud crazy music in our cars Smash the merchandise!! Smash the patriarchy!! VERSE 1 I was going to the grocery store I was gonna buy some food I bought a donut, a mango, a banana or two CHORUS VERSE 2 I got in my car to go to the rock show I got a rocket in my pocket and music in my sock CHORUS BRIDGE We are C-R-A-Z-Y We are C-R-A-Z-Y Get off my property!!

The depth, down deep Never knowing what you’ll see the universe, unknown thinking “will I ever get home” Energy is running low Or I don’t know where to go The dark matter’s swallowing me Why would you be up here? Gravity throwin’ you out of control Going father away from home What is happening in the dark Look at the stars think where you are Deep down and not coming up
4.
Walking along the path of greatness but it’s getting dark Running around no one can stop us now Jamming is our only way out No one can hold us down Cause we’re living on the edge You crazy kids they call out but we can’t hear a sound Trying to find our way around this crazy world all these crazy people judging us but we just *keep flowing like paint on the wall Living loving dreaming cause life goes on sometimes you gotta go your own way get rid of your sanity go wild and free get rid of our sanity go wild and free Change the way we see and start looking at us being new and free Change an aspect of our selves change the world escaping our harsh reality **be the rainbow on a white wall

Verse #1: (sad) Every day when I leave my home I don’t know if I’m gonna come back the same Every day when I enter the school yard I don’t know if I’m gonna come back at all Come back at all They say some things that kill me inside They say some things that make me wanna cry (wanna cry) And I’m asking why (why) They make me wanna die (Wanna die) (chorus) My parents don’t believe me They say it’s just some teasing I don’t know the reason But they don’t know what I’m feeling Verse #2: (mad) It’s eating me up inside like a really bad bug bite I just wanna run and hide Mom and dad it makes me really mad All the kids do is is tease me about me about my clothes All the kids do is is tease me about me about my hair All they do is tell me I’m not good enough All they do is put me down I just wanna get outta this town Enough I’m done, I wanna see the sun I won’t deal with this anymore It’s time to break down the door Bridge = (drum solo) Verse #3: (happy) I asked for help and she gave me what I needed Why didn’t I see it before All I needed was to open up the door And let people in So they could see what I’m feeling Now every day when I leave my home I know I’m gonna come back feeling great Every day when I enter the school yard I know I’m gonna come back tomorrow She says things that make me feel great She says things that make me wanna cry (cry) Of happiness I’m happy now (now) And I’m not down (down) Chorus x3 (drum solo)

CHORUS Love tears a hole in the heart You will never understand! INTRO/V1 A million words won’t bring you back I know because I’ve tried A million tears won’t bring you back I know because I’ve cried CHORUS VERSE 2 I love how you took my breath away but now I need it since you couldn’t stay On the outside I look okay but looks don’t matter when you’re away CHORUS BRIDGE A million reasons can’t tell you why we died A million reasons can’t tell you why we fly ENDING A million words won’t bring you back I know because I have tried A million tears won’t bring you back I know because I’ve cried.

VERSE What if we are just dolls in a doll house? What if we are part of something else? What if there is something beyond our minds? I wish I could explain in words what I’m thinking. that there’s something beyond this you wouldn’t understand CHORUS What if, what if the world goes beyond this? What if what if life is an illusion? What if there is something else? VERSE What if we are just dust on a mantle? What if we are just something tiny? What if we are something tiny in someone’s mind? I wish I could explain everything in a way you would understand We are something small in a big world of something big CHORUS BRIDGE I’m tired of all the what ifs I just want to know the truth Are we small or something big Is there something else? Do you know the answer to what I’m always asking? CHORUS VERSE What if we are living somewhere where they watch our every move? What if we are small and afraid? But what if we can grow bigger? CHORUS X2

I’m so sick of all this school I’m so sick of all these cool people Playgrounds and play dough braided hair and scratched elbows Mason jars and bugs that glow Where did the time go? I wanted to be a princess I wanted to be an actress I can’t because I’m older now I’m gonna pretend throw on my party smile I’m gonna rock my heart out boring is not my thing growing up will give me a number that doesn’t mean anything Cuz I’m a kid now Not listening to their rules I’m ripping off this tie to jump in my swimming pool Don’t let them steal your shine Don’t worry we’ve got time I’m so done with this 9 to 5 I’m so done not enough money for my time Secret tippy toes while measuring our height turning the lights off and holding hands tight Juicy strawberries dissolving in one bite warm summer days flying our kites I wanted to be a firefighter I wanted to be a police officer I can’t because I’m older now I’m gonna pretend throw on my party smile I’m gonna rock my heart out boring is not my thing growing up will give me a number that doesn’t mean anything Cuz i’m a kid now not listening to their rules I’m ripping off this tie to jump in my swimming pool Don’t let them steal your shine Don’t worry we’ve got time

SPOKEN: Out in the wild, there lives the craziest animal ever: the bobcat.” VERSE Golden shining in the light but in the dark he’s not as bright But when he’s stalking on his prey, He’s going to pounce right away CHORUS The golden one, in the sun The golden one, watch him run You gotta watch out for his moves, or else he’ll dance all over you and trap you with his groove BRIDGE He’s so cute when he walks around, In his shimmery golden suit Under the light, his pearly whites, light up the night! CHORUS
10.
Verse 1 I’m just a little one Running away from home Trying to find something I haven’t lost I’ve run away from my dreams Trying to chase the horizon Pre-chorus Run away... I’m a runaway... Chorus Nowhere to call home Always traveling on my own Running down forgotten roads Want to be a star Away from the lights of life Verse 2 I’ve been wandering for so long My heart has been broken I’ve finally found my way And now my soul has spoken Bridge No one has taught me So I found my own way The downfalls of life Were simply tricks of the play CHORUS Outro Run away... I’m a runaway... I’m a runaway... Ran away... Ran away... Ran away...
11.
Life was a game, I would always win My friends would lose, I could not help them Life is not a game, and it a shame Lives will be lost, and friends will go away Life’s full of hardships and struggles It’s not all polka dots and bubbles You’re not guaranteed a fairy tale life It’s often interrupted by trials and strife Life is not a game and rarely is it fair But we can still find a way to win [Instrumental] I can finally see the light Where my purpose stands Bright as the dawn rising over the mountains The flowers are blooming once again Life was a game that I could always win My friends would win and I could finally help them Life is not a game and it not a shame Lives will begin and friends are here to stay
12.
In 1944, there once was a war Hiding once more, to fight in the war 1954, tired of doing this once more Boys tellin’ me to do chores CHORUS Helmets of gold You have to be BOLD Sometimes I fall, But I’m a disco ball The best thing to be Is to be me Dresses no more Now back to the war 1964, many years more I’m tired of the war I might as well do my chores Shot- shot- shot CHORUS 2013, war is done Now it’s time to have some fun 2017, times have changed At least that’s what they say 3022, at last I can be here with you The war is done, the war was no fun CHORUS Everyone seems to applaud After I reveal that I’m flawed Shed away the tears As time disappears Beyond the different years
13.
You criticize my every move, but it’s not your choice of what I do. You make me stumble but I’ll never fall, I will never be nothing at all. I don’t care what you say, I’m gonna do what I want all day. I don’t care what you think, you’re not even anything. I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care no I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care no I don’t care When you speak your mind is full of hate You gave me scars to burn one day But soon it’ll all be gone away I don’t care what you say, I’m gonna do what I want all day. I don’t care what you think, you’re not even anything. I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care no I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care no I don’t care You are not the boss of me Life always went your way and now I’m tired of playing your stupid little games, now I’m going to play my way.

Thinly cut pieces so dimly looked upon put down by society forced to say nothing’s wrong Wanting to say help me to write in a different key locked into a groundless fear but if you cry the page will smear Paper girl, your soul is torn between two worlds one of freedom, color and life and one of pain, fear and strife So full of color but you see this place you call home as bleak as these girls, oh so chic but all you want is to be unique Fold yourself to make you stronger Now that you have sat and pondered sick of others tearing at your seams now you fly away not just in your dreams
15.
It’s the night. It’s creepy time. We saw the headless horseman. It was a cloudy night. I saw a creepy kite. It said “I will kill you!” We saw a ghostly figure. We saw blood on the wall. It spelled “I’m coming for you.” I saw a scary scarecrow with a bloody smile on his face Yelling “I will find you!” It’s just a dream! So weird it seems! I’m so happy! Not bad, it’s glee CHORUS Somethings out there. I need help A-dren-a-line I felt the way I felt before Papaya fruit doot doot doot doot trees and some vines and diamond mines bird and squirrels too there all for you. wait... I see the ghost CHORUS Pixies are scary they don’t come with me I had the same vision Scary floating hands were coming with me I burnt my hand on some hot sand at night. I had the same vision again!
16.
It’s always been this way Never had much to say It just keeps getting worse I can’t even write a verse It seems like I’ve been cursed CHORUS This smoke is choking me I have no way to see I’m trying to figure it out But my mind is filled with doubt I’m on my own, got to find my way home Just let me be free VERSE There’s finally a break in the dark Maybe this cruel world has a heart There is a tiny spark of hope I guess I just have to cope I think, I can lift this curse CHORUS This smoke is still choking me But now I can kind of see I’m starting to figure it out I’ve found my route I’m no longer alone, I can go home I am almost free (RAP) CHORUS This smoke is no longer here, Now I can see clear I figured it out, I found my route I’m not longer alone, I found my home I am free

Cried myself to sleep but you don't care always wanting more yet unprepared you want her company but she's not there Chorus: Boom goes society breaking through with reality no one there to bite you with their jaws but you say nothing nothing at all Instead of calling out to you I come to my own rescue shut my eyes and sit in vain wondering why I'm still insane Chorus Crawling through my window they're coming soon the only way to escape is on the roof no turning back now is what they say don't bother writing you'll be okay Boom goes society we're losing hope in humanity always calling out you're out of laws but you say nothing nothing at all
