Gem City 04:06
[VERSE 1] I am Tecumseh And I was born upon this land long ago A shooting star burst Across Miami Valley Cosmic afterglow Five rivers meet you here at a mound You lead the way as her Spirit burns bright beside you [REFRAIN] Gem City asks you Can you hear her call? [CHORUS - Instrumental] [VERSE 2] I am Tecumseh The birth of aviation Calm before the storm Above the jet stream Scramjet and ramjet engines dance with UFOs She’s better than the rest, she is blessed With innovation on a mission For her proud nation [REFRAIN] [CHORUS - Instrumental] [BRIDGE] [VERSE 3] I am Tecumseh And I was born upon this land long ago A shooting star burst Across Miami Valley Cosmic afterglow [OUTRO]

Yellow Cab 04:00
VERSE 1 Call a taxi Take a trip Light a spark And throw a kiss In a yellow cab, Grab ahold and Climb aboard Riffs and rhymes Run up ahead In a yellow cab REFRAIN Yellow cab, mellow yellow Yellow submarine There’s no place like the right time If life is but a dream Yellow cab, yellow ribbon What you feel can make it real Sons and daughters Test the waters See there is more earth than sea VERSE 2 Turn about Twist ‘n shout Tell me how you work it out In a yellow cab, Tune it up and Count it down Know that when you’re lost you’re found In a Yellow cab REFRAIN BRIDGE When you feel part of the scenery Turn off your machinery In a yellow cab, Times you’ve been around the sun Doesn’t really matter none Freedom In a yellow cab GUITAR SOLO VERSE 3 Call a taxi Take a trip Light a spark And throw a kiss For a Yellow cab, Grab a hold and Climb aboard Riffs and rhymes Run up ahead In a Yellow cab OUTRO - GUITAR SOLO

Bank Talk 03:49
VERSE 1 What do I know about her? Why do I draw a blank? How much do I pay her? She’s the central bank Those who talk don’t know her Those who know don’t talk Lying on her balance sheet Hiding in the dark VERSE 2 What do I know about her? Why do I draw a blank? Where do they hide her secrets? Who do I need to thank? Cold as a corporate lawsuit Mean as a drug cartel Sharp as a chain reaction Time to break her spell

[VERSE 1] The other day . . . as I was walkin’ Past the tomb of the registered voter, I said How unfair, our ancestors are there The dead people can’t vote at all. . . . [REFRAIN] The dead people can’t vote at all except in Chicago and Florida, ya know. . . . Worked their fingers to the bone for an 8’ x 3’ home. . . . The dead people can’t vote at all. . . . [VERSE 2] Now the dead people can’t vote Cause that ain’t legal Aaand if it ain’t legal It might be wrong, but Right or wrong, we can sing this song The dead people can’t vote at all. . . . [REFRAIN] [BRIDGE] Well I’m voting what can I say Voting my life away Voting for business and pleasure So I voted 4 times today Don’t need ID they’d say Old shoes on new feet, Whatever [VERSE 3] Now when dead people come back to life. . . . Some do, As zombies and vampires ’n such, We can wack ‘em on sight, ya know They’ve got no rights. . . . The dead people can’t vote at all. . . . [REFRAIN] [BRIDGE] As I was walkin’ Past the tomb of the registered voter, I said How unfair, our ancestor’s there The dead people can’t vote at all [REFRAIN]
