Track Name: Don't Drag Me Down
Don’t Drag Me Down
Written by Mike Ness of Social Distortion
Performed by One Drop
Originally performed by Social Distortion





Children are taught to hate
Parents just couldn't wait

Some are rich and some are poor
Others will just suffer more
Have you ever been ashamed
And felt society try to keep you down ?
I begin to watch things change
And see them turn around

Turn around, they try to drag me down
Turn around

Ignorance is like a gun in hand
Reach out to the promise land
Your history books are full of lies
Media blitz gonna dry your eyes
Have you ever been afraid
And felt society try to keep you down?
I begin to watch things change
And see them turn around

Turn around, they try to keep me down
Turn around

Ignorance like a gun in hand
Reach out to the promise land
Your history books are full of lies
Media blitz wanna dry your eyes
You're eighteen
wanna be a man
Your granddaddy's in
the Klu Klux Klan
Taking two steps forward
Taking four steps back
Wanna go and paint
The white house black

Turn around, they' try to keep me down
Turn around,
Turn around, they' try to keep me down
Turn around,
Track Name: Magdalena (Dub Mix)
She lost her soul
In a bar lounge
She shared her love
Throughout the whole town
The whiskey was warm
Like the sheets on her bed
But her heart was broken
When he, he got up and left
Oh oh girl

With too much pride to
To shed a tear
She finds her courage
In a, a pint of beer
So she loved
But loved for fun
Forgot to love
The important one

Oh girl
You’ve got to love yourself
Oh girl
You can’t trust no one else
Oh girl
You’ve got to love yourself
Oh girl
You can’t trust no one else

Now she’s a victim
And wants revenge
Switched from courage to hate
And now a, a bottle of gin
Can’t find herself
In life with him
So she hides
Behind religion oh oh girl

Stand up on your own
Dry your tears
(You’ve got to love yourself)
Oh oh girl
(Stand up on your own)

You can’t trust no one else
Oh oh girl
(Stand up on your own)
You’ve got to love yourself
Oh oh girl
(Stand up on your own)
You can’t trust no one else

Dry your tears
Track Name: The Carnival
The pressure’s got the best of me
Things are not the way they used to be
Can’t seem to quench my thirst
My patience is about to burst
In this carnival of greed
There’s no tokens for morality
The ride to the top’s your plan
At the price of the next man

Round and ‘round I go
As time pass things just seem too slow
Take me off this ride I’ve had enough can’t take no more
Round and ‘round it goes
As time pass things just seem too slow oh oh
Take me off this ride I’ve had enough can’t take no more

Stand in line for envy
First place prize hypocrisy
Then march your trophy home
And show Mr. Jones
These games are fixed for few to win
Often designed by politicians
It’s a civil disease
But the rich have immunity

‘Round and ‘round I go
As time pass things just seem too slow
Take me off this ride I’ve had enough can’t take no more
‘Round and ‘round it goes
As time pass things just seem too slow oh oh
Take me off this ride I’ve had enough can’t take no more

‘Round and ‘round I go
As time pass things just seem too slow
Take me off this ride I’ve had enough can’t take no more
‘Round and ‘round it goes
As time pass things just seem too slow oh oh
Take me off this ride I’ve had enough can’t take no more
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh o o o oh oh
Track Name: The Last Star
As long as the sun will rise above me
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh
Until the last star comes crashing to the sea
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh
As long as the sun will rise above me
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh

This world can be cruel
So many are fools
Crushing dreams set right in front of you oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
They told me reach out for the stars
I’m sure to go real far
As long as I walk with you
I walk with you, I walk with you

As long as the sun will rise above me
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh
Until the last star comes crashing to the sea
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh

Now I’m a grown man
I think back when I had to struggle
These foolish people tried to hold me down oh oh oh oh oh
But I never listen to
Criticism fool they keep me from succeeding
They bring me down, they bring me down
So
As long as the sun will rise above me
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh
Until the last star comes crashing to the sea
I take orders from no one but His Majesty oh oh oh oh oh

I said a 123
We’re moving forward with history
We’re gonna push on through
And despite what they think of you oh oh
As said a 123
Were moving forward with victory
Were gonna push on through
And despite what they think of you oh oh
I said its time to take a stance
And put your foot down on oppression
First learn to say “I can”
Is an important lesson
No one’s gonna give you respect
If you don’t show you respect yourself
Thinking positive will always help
Finish your school and learn to use your tools
To build a future paved with gold and every tree grows fruit
And everyone will always eat and celebrate your success
Proving non-believers always feels the best
Proving non-believers always feels the best
Proving non-believers always feels the best
Jealousy comes, people put you through tests
Proving non-believers always feels the best
Track Name: No More Tears
You’ve got me wondering (ooo ooo)
Will my love find another home?
I’m tossing and turning (ooo ooo)
You’re right beside me but I’m feeling all alone
You tell me you love me
But not the type of love where I’m from
The tables are turning
I could have taught you
But you never really wanted to learn

Woh oh, never really wanted to learn
Woh oh, never really wanted to l

No more tears on my pillow
And I’m sleeping through the night these days
I’m not concerned where you go
Just don’t come around my way
You started this fire
You can’t escape, these flames will burn
You once were admired
I could have showed you
But you never really wanted to learn
Never really wanted to learn

Never thought I’d let you go
Forever’s not the same before
No sense in you coming back
‘Cause once you leave those doors will close
Never thought I’d let you go
Forever’s not the same before
No sense in you coming back
‘Cause once you leave those doors will close


No more tears on my pillow
And I’m sleeping through the night these days
I’m not concerned where you go
Just don’t come around my way

No more tears on my pillow
And I’m sleeping through the night these days
I’m not concerned where you go
Just don’t come around my way
Oh oh eah, oh oh eah
Track Name: Wake Up
Oh Lord oh Lord come take me away
Or give me the strength to make it through this day
‘Cause the world ain’t right, causing me confusion
These problems in life, so little solution
Freedom is sung by those who preach
And opportunity is seldom in reach
And flags are hung to show their victory

And I don’t want to wake up if the sun won’t shine
I never thought I’d lose my mind

Give me a choice and I’ll show you a King
I called him before, he fixed my wings
And then took flight through the clouds
If you haven’t before I’ll show you how
‘Cause as I see we need some help
Destruction today, the pain is felt
Today the world’s lost but you got me
A better tomorrow is our destiny

And I don’t want to wake up if the sun don’t shine
I never thought I’d lose my mind
