One World

In the city there's a tower like the phoenix in the sky
All the glory in its twin years re-emerged tall, strong, and high

Now there's One World to see
One world you must see
Downtown NYC

I remember all the power when you stood there bright and true
When the lady in the harbor had an eye on both of you

Now there's One World to see
One world you must see
Downtown NYC

Shine on in the morning light
Reach high with symbolic height
Stand tall in the New York sky

Anchor for the Center's site
Beacon for the nation's right
Emblem for the city's height

So it's freedom NY red and NY white and NY blue
by the people of this city the courageous part of you

Now there's One World to see
One world you must see
Downtown NYC

From the observation decks
Traffic looks like moving specks
One World it's how you scrape the sky

So light up all the darkest eyes
Downtown let the Freedom rise
One World you're the ultimate high

Mister Sister

Mister Sister I see you've set the stage
These things just amplify your rage
Can't you see you're losing as you age
What makes it hard to simply turn the page

Oh yeah yes it is my time but I just want you to know
You are your own partner in crime because you won't let go

Mister Sister can you collect enough
Vanity has you speaking off the cuff
Can't you see you're just collecting stuff
When will you know you simply have enough

Oh yeah yes it is my dime so I just want you to know
You are your own partner in crime when you just let it flow

Are you dreaming that you're screaming

Mister Sister you're searching for a fool
You will find you're swimming in that pool
Can't you see you studied at the school
Where losers run and ride their favorite mule

Oh yeah yes it is my rhyme and I just want you to know
You are your own partner in crime because its just a show

Are you dreaming that you're screaming

Wire in the Fire

You say that you don't like the change at all
The standards you hold close will not ever fall

It's your wire in the fire
Is it hazy is this crazy

You say that you won't teach the latest rule
The rights for anyone could not be so cruel

It's your wire in the fire
It's not hazy are you crazy

You say that you won't comprise your love
Your trusted values fit you like a glove

It's my wire in the fire
It's not hazy I am crazy for you

Six Legendary Cats Suite VII: The Observer

There are no notes or lyrics associated with this instrumental.

I Will

The sun rises high each and every day
And when there are clouds they're only in the way
You can trust this dependable sign
If the rain falls it will decline
You can put your faith on the line

When words can never be found
And when the lightning is striking the ground
And when you need me to be around I will

The seasons will change and cycle through the year
As time slips away these moments we must share
You can trust this reliable thing
When you fly have faith in the wing
If you learn the line you can sing

When words can never be found
And when the lightning is striking the ground
And when you need me to be around I will

I will just know I will
I will of course I will
I will you know I will

Six Legendary Cats Suite VIII: Where Are You?

Serotonin Five

Who said you had to go to work for one
Who always had the final say
If your ambition drives you to the sun
Then never look the other way

Working on Serotonin Five living for today
Trying hard just to stay alive and to be free

Who said you had to keep your house the way
It is arranged up on a set
If you consider what is on display
Can this be truly worth the debt

Working on Serotonin Five living for today
Sorting through all the social jive just to be free

The sun will rise and shine on everyone
Nature is wise it takes from what it gives

Working on Serotonin Five living for today
Setting course for the day to arrive when we are free

Six Legendary Cats Suite IX: The Player

There are no notes or lyrics associated with this instrumental.

Sinners and Saints

Well I got no time for anger
And completely closed the door
No more comments from the hanger
Who just always had one more

Yet I had to find the reason
Why the method was a chore
It was slick like toxic treason
And like lava it did pour

This was work of a haranguer
Just a weak competitor
Now I got no time for anger
So I firmly closed the door

Well I figured the connection
Would just help to pay the rent
But a simply misconception
Put that thinking on the bent

That's when the suspicious angle
Made the deal not quite square
The exchange became a tangle
Somehow lost was the word fair

Now I got no time for sinners
And I might not be a saint
If I'm not among the winners
At least I know what I ain't

Way Over Head

Let me tell you about a friend of mine
Who was drinking at some crosstown bar
Yes he locked eyes with a fancy one
She had money the look and a fine car

Everybody loves this lady
She's a lion with those big paws
Everybody loves this lady
She is playing with what she draws

Somehow he thought that he would change her ways
Mold her into a loyal loving one
This illusion set in within no time
With persistence he planned and did not run

Everybody loves this lady
She's a wild one with some big toys
Everybody loves this lady
She is riding with the cowboys

And you're way o way over head
Way o Way over head

Everybody loves this lady
She is reading Leo Tolstoy
Everybody loves this lady
She is running with the big boys

You're way o way over head
Way o Way over head
Way o way over head
Way o Way over head
