Track Name: Down To The Core
Right now. Right now,
Let's find out what it's all about
Step in step out,
Step up without a doubt

Raise your hands, close your eyes,
Is it the pearly gates or the hellfire?
Playing The fool is such a chore,
Gonna shake it up down to the core

I been lost I been found
I been pushed up and pushed back down
No one else to settle the score
Gonna take it down to the core
Down to the Core, Down to the core

Oh! Through the skin and to the quick
Something tells me you lay it on thick
You fall apart when things get hard?
What do you turn to when it gets dark?

I been lost I been found
I been pushed up and pushed back down
No one else to settle the score
Gonna take it down to the core
Down to the Core, Down to the core

(solo)

I been lost I been found
I been pushed up and pushed back down
Do we crawl before we soar?
Gonna take it down to the core
Down to the Core, Down to the core
Down, down down to the core:
Track Name: Donkey
Verse1:
I been a donkey, been a mule, I carried burdens, played the fool
I don't mind, I'll do it again, For a little while
I enjoy a little fun, But I'm there when there's work to be done
I'm told it's easier if you can do it with a smile

Bridge:
I hear you say "you might not get your due
If you always play a supporting role?"
But I'm not right in the spotlight
I tend to sputter and not talk right
So I'm better off not trying to be star of the show.

Verse 2:
So okay, I'm underpaid, but I'll sleep well at the end of the day
If I'm in your arms, that'll do to make it right
If you don't mind this little Eeyore, That'll go far to even the score When I add it up In the deep of the night

Second Bridge:
I'm not one to throw in the towel
More likely to shrug trouble off than scowl
Cause it's also true when I'm with you
I can take the blows and somehow pull through
So I'm gonna hang in to the end of the show.

(Solo)
Repeat Second Bridge:

Last Verse:
I been a donkey, been a mule, I got down but now it's all cool
That's alright, That's okay, I got you
That's alright, That's okay, I got you
That's alright, That's okay, I got you
Track Name: Drunken Moon
Is it me or is it my eye,
or do the planets wobble up there in the sky?
If it’s me I hope they don’t cut me off too soon
I’d prefer to blame the drunken moon

Is it dark or is it the day,
or maybe I’ve just gone blind? I can’t really say
I can’t say just where I’m goin’,
so I’ll just blame the drunken moon

She don’t care, not a care...
In this world, just floats up there
She don’t care, just drifts away.... In the light of day

And when it's time to close this bar,
Time to go on outside and warm up the car
Cash out the drawer and wander on home
and bid goodnight to that drunken moon

she don’t care, not a care in this world,
shines the same on each and every boy & girl
Just spins around and drifts away... In the light of day

She don’t care, not a care in this world,
shines the same on each every boy and girl
when it's time to bid you adieu, know we love you (good night)
