Track Name: The New Retro Theme (with UMRO)
If you didn't know then it's time you knew
The old retro's old and the new retro's new
If you need the soul then don't play the fool
If you didn't know then I'm talking to you.

They called us liars
And they wouldn't get down
And they said "Who are you trying
To get up off 'a the ground?"
But once the state becomes dire
How are you sitting around?
If you don't hate messing with the fire
Hell ain't as bad as it sounds.

We crossed the deep blue sea
We walked the desert sands
We thought that we knew the
Path to the promised land
But fear and hatred went through me
When we learned that the mission was damned
Then steered the path a new way to be
Two turns ahead of the man.
Track Name: Out of Sight (with UMRO)
Will you remember me, when someone takes my place
Will you remember me, I have a forgetful face

How will you think of me,
Will a sip of our history leave a bitter taste
How will you speak of me,
Will the thought of saying my name, leave you in pain
What will you do now,
Abandon the memories we had in paradise
How will it go down,
Fire them up, let it burn into the night

Out of sight, out of mind is where I’ll be
Out of sight, out of mind, please don’t forget me

Do you miss me,
Cause its been three months and I’m still missing you
What about our history, will you loathe the past or treasure it like I do
Do you hate me
Cause I hate myself for breaking your heart
If I could change things,
I’d give you someone who loves you the way you are

Out of sight, out of mind is where I’ll be
Out of sight, out of mind, please don’t forget me
Out of sight, out of mind is where I’ll be
Out of sight, out of mind, please don’t forget me

What do I do now, I have all these questions
What do I do now, when will all this end
[repeat 4 times]

Out of sight, out of mind is where I’ll be
Out of sight, out of mind, please don’t forget me
Out of sight, out of mind is where I’ll be
Out of sight, out of mind, please don’t forget me
Track Name: My Melody (as The Truth)
It seems like everybody wants a lady or a girl
Everyone is looking for their baby or their world
T.I.'s, Justin's, and Timberlands are looking for a girl
But I have something more in mind here's what I'm thinking of
I'm trying to find a melody to finish up my symphony
The harmony of you and me
Improve my music drastically
So let me hear your sweetest note
Attach it to my favorite quote
Once your vocals start to float
You'll perfect the song I wrote
My Melody

Can you be my melody?
Melody, Melody
My Melody my sweet melody

Can you be my melody?
I need you in my songs
Without you here to carry it
My composition's wrong
I've been searching for this harmony for oh so long
But with you here in my life I know my music's strong
My Melody
Will you be My Melody?
Can you be
My Melody, My Melody

My Melody, My Melody

I'm trying to find a melody to finish up my symphony
The harmony of you and me
Improve my music drastically
So let me hear your sweetest note
Attach it to my favorite quote
Once your vocals start to float
You'll perfect the song I wrote
My-My-My Melody
My Melody, My Melody

Repeat
