“A Traitor First” by Brian Burwell

I was a douche conspiring over my plight
Then I became president overnight
Now I gotta figure out how to do it right
So much to plot and scheme

In the ivory tower with the first family
With power that ain’t meant for me
A whole world to corrupt is waiting for me
I’m so excited to be (A traitor first)

I’m finding out what being immoral’s all about (A traitor first)
Making my way, I’m conniving everyday (A traitor)
It’s gonna be my time (A traitor)
To show them all that I’m a traitor first!

“Flagpole Sitta” by Harvey Danger

I had visions, I was in them;
I was looking into the mirror
To see a little bit clearer
The rottenness and evil in me.

Fingertips have memories
Mine can’t forget the curves of your body
And when I feel a bit naughty
I run it up the flagpole and see who salutes
(but no one ever does)

I’m not sick but I’m not well
And I’m so hot ’cause I’m in Hell.

Been around the world and found
That only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding
And I don’t even own a TV

Put me in the hospital for nerves
And then they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy
They cut off my legs, now I’m an amputee, God damn you

I’m not sick but I’m not well
And I’m so hot ’cause I’m in Hell
I’m not sick but I’m not well
And it’s a sin to live so well

I wanna publish ‘zines
And rage against machines
I wanna pierce my tongue
It doesn’t hurt, it feels fine
The trivial sublime
I’d like to turn off time
And kill my mind
You kill my mind, mind

Paranoia, paranoia
Everybody’s coming to get me
Just say you never met me
I’m running underground with the moles (digging holes)
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to God it sounds like they’re snoring;
But if you’re bored, then you’re boring.
The agony and the irony: they’re killing me (whoa).

I’m not sick but I’m not well
And I’m so hot ’cause I’m in Hell
I’m not sick but I’m not well
And it’s a sin to live this well
(one, two, three, four)

“Push” by Matchbox Twenty

She said “I don’t know if I’ve ever been good enough
I’m a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
And I don’t know if I’ve ever been really loved
By a hand that’s touched me, and I feel like something’s gonna give
And I’m a little bit angry”

Well, this ain’t over
No not here, not while I still need you around
You don’t owe me, we might change
Yeah we just might feel good

I wanna push you around
Well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down
Well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted
I wanna take you for granted
Yeah, well I will

She said “I don’t know why you ever would lie to me
Like I’m a little untrusting when I think that the truth is gonna hurt ya
And I don’t know why you couldn’t just stay with me
You couldn’t stand to be near me when my face don’t seem to want to shine
‘Cause it’s a little bit dirty”

Well, don’t just stand there
Say nice things to me
‘Cause I’ve been cheated, I’ve been wronged
And you, you don’t know me
I can’t change, I won’t do anything at all

I wanna push you around
Well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down
Well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted
I wanna take you for granted
Yeah, well I will

Oh, but don’t bowl me over
Just wait a minute, well I kinda fell apart
Things get so crazy, crazy
Don’t rush this baby
Don’t rush this baby, baby, baby

I wanna push you around
Well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down
Well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I wanna take you, take you
Yeah, well I will, I will, I will, I will, yeah
Well I will, I will, I will, yeah
Push you around
And drag you down
I wanna push you around
Well I will

“I Just Can’t Wait to be King” by Jason Weaver, Laura Williams, and Rowan Atkinson from The Lion King

I’m gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware
Well, I’ve never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair

I’m gonna be the mane event
Like no king was before
I’m brushing up on looking down
I’m working on my roar

Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing
Oh, I just can’t wait to be king
You’ve rather a long way to go
Young master, if you think

No one saying, “Do this”
Now when I said that, I
No one saying, “Be there”
What I meant was

No one saying, “Stop that”
Look, what you don’t realize
No one saying, “See here”
Now see here

Free to run around all day
Well, that’s definitely out
Free to do it all my way

I think it’s time that you and I
Arranged a heart to heart
Kings don’t need advice
From little hornbills for a start

If this is where the monarchy is headed
Count me out
Out of service, out of Africa
I wouldn’t hang about

This child is getting wildly out of wing
Oh, I just can’t wait to be king

Everybody look left
Everybody look right
Everywhere you look I’m
Standing in the spotlight
Not yet

Let every creature go for broke and sing
Let’s hear it in the herd and on the wing
It’s gonna be King Simba’s finest fling

Oh, I just can’t wait to be king
Oh, I just can’t wait to be king
Oh, I just can’t wait to be king

“Colors of the Wind” by Vanessa Williams from Pocahontas

You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know
You don’t know

You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other,
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or let the eagle tell you where he’s been
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind

How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know

And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper-skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the earth and still
All you’ll own is earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

“Seize the Day” by Cast from Newsies

Now is the time to seize the day
Stare down the odds and seize the day
Minute by minute that’s how you win it
We will find a way
But let us seize the day
Courage cannot erase our fear
Courage is when we face our fear
Tell those with power safe in their tower
We will not obey

Behold the brave battalion that stands side by side
Too few in number and too proud to hide
Then say to the others who did not follow through
You’re still our brothers, and we will fight for you

Now is the time to seize the day
Stare down the odds and seize the day

Once we’ve begun
If we stand as one
Someday become somehow
And a prayer becomes a vow

And the strike starts right damn now

Now is the time to seize the day

Now is the time to seize the day

Answer the call and don’t delay

Answer the call and don’t delay

Wrongs will be righted
If we’re united
Let us seize the day

Now let ’em hear it loud and clear

Now let ’em hear it loud and clear

Like it or not we’re drawing near

Like it or not we’re drawing near

Proud and defiant
We’ll slay the giant
Judgment day is here
Houston to Harlem, look what’s begun
One for all and all for one
Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike!
Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike! Strike!
Oh! Strike!

Now is the time to seize the day
They’re gonna see there’s hell to pay
Nothing can break us
No one can make us quit before we’re done
One for all and all for
One for all and all for
One for all and all for one
