Track Name: Solitary Bizness (Single Edit)
Won't you dig a little deeper
And overcome the pain in your bleeding fingers
Who knows, you might find some treasure
Or something strange that belongs to none other

Most of the time, you work hard for nothing
and no-one sees or they don't give a damn
No you don't, need the validation
just scratch the surface then you'll know exactly where you are...

It's here, and you're alone and it's OK.
You're doing nothing wrong

open it up, what are you waiting for?
just skip the first step, take it straight to the next.
It will always be a solitary business,
but at least it gives you some peace of mind

It's here, and you're alone and it's OK.
you're doing nothing wrong
...
Track Name: A Night In The City
It was night in the city
I was only a kid
I just wanted to impress her
Well of course I did
She took me out dancing
I was doing my best
I couldn’t help thinking
This must be a test
Is it Jerry Springer or the CIA
Should I be running for cover
Or should I just dance the night away

You’ve got me looking for gold
I’ve lost control of my soul

She took me to a party
Introduced me as her bother
But that didn’t seem to stop her
Or one thing leading to another
Of course I could not believe it
Where’s you’re iPhone when you need it
This was turning into one of those stories
I probably just made up

When I finally went to leave
She kissed me on both cheeks
It was a pleasure to meet you
Little brother of mine
Why don’t you come back
And see me again sometime

It was just another crazy night
In the city of light
Track Name: Keys To The City
Keys To The City
(Xavier Boyer /Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand & Pedro Resende)

I've got a thing to do
And I know it's gonna hurt you
I'm sure it will cost me too
But I'm willing to pay my dues
Red blood in vessels of blue
It's hard to believe but true
I've got a thing to do
I hope it will get me through

Chorus:
Come on now let's leave this party
We don't care what they do or say
I'll never get the keys to the city
I'm only staying for one day
Hold your ground, don't ever look down
Stare 'em straight in the eye
I'll never get the keys to the city
I don't care I'm only passing by

I've got a thing to do
I'm afraid I'll miss my cue
You only get a second or two
Tell me now what would you do?
Red blood in vessels of blue
It's the truth, it's nothing new
I don't want to make you blue
It's something I have to do

Chorus

Tomorrow I'll be far away
I'm only staying for one day
I'll never get the keys to the city

I've got a thing to do
And I know it's gonna hurt you
I'm sure it will cost me too
But I'm willing to pay my dues
Red blood in vessels of blue
It's hard to believe but true
I've got a thing to do
Track Name: Cool Down
I must go up top, cool down
'cause i'm soooo tired
And I like to change
I love a rough soak, cool down
It's such a good time

I'll turn into a city if you want me to
I'm a rock but I turn into a sponge when it's raining
I'm a palace, i'm a crappy flat, you don't stand a chance
I'm a shark and a kitty, a kangaroo, a puppy

Chorus:
I try a little little, I cry a little little 
I fry a little little, I try a little little
I die a little little, I fly a little little
I cry a little little , I cry a little little more
...

I've got my gauges all going into the red
I need to cool down
My batteries are running low and soon they'll be dead
I need to cool down

Chorus

Cool down Sweetie, I don't mean maybe....
