Hotting Up

by Iration

Reelin 04:32
Needle on my compass is spinning Imagination is winning Can't get my head right I get the feeling that I can't get back Night driving, no headlights you've got your reasons And I know you've got your seasons But i keep getting lost with you But something in the way ya turned your back makes me wanna try to push through Ooh ya got me feelin right And I know that you're staring out your window at night. I'm staring back at you Too many times I've walked away without telling you But now I'm telling you You've got me reeling High can touch the ceiling I'm losing my mind and I don't even know the reason Another way to say that I can't waste another day of my life without hearing your name Cuz I'm lost up in the light Sleepless nights Waiting for the day when i can catch that flight Another way to say that I can't waste another day of my life without hearing your name Skip back to the day I’m tryin’ not to lose my way Details are kind of fuzzy but the feeling still remains we met we talked I stared too long you walked now discombobulated and I don't know what to say Ooh baby baby you take me on a ride and I know that I'd be lonely here without my foolish pride and I'm waiting waiting running circles in my mind just to get another chance to tell you
Stay Awake 03:20
I'm sorry that I hurt you with those things I had to say Never meant to bring you heartache and sorrow Sorry that the sunshine never came today Weatherman forecasts blue skies tomorrow So let's stay awake And watch the sunrise Let's take it slow 'Cause baby time flies Whoawhoawhoa Well I might not be exactly what you had in mind But I got you believin Whoawhoawhoa No I might not be the perfect guy you hoped to find But I know that you feel it (Post-chorus after 2nd hook) No I don't have exactly what you want, but I got just what you need So say you love me you think it's a role I have to play a personality that I borrow But if you and I can last another day There might just be a path we can follow
Sometimes I think about... Life was so simple back then We'd run around no shoes Just some cane field blues No thought to what was round the bend Sheets filled with sand And secrets in the banyan Sometimes I wonder if it's all a dream Another green flash playing tricks on me But i know that deep inside it’s still alive Let me take you back and you'll see Remember getting lost and found Your whole world inside a one-road town Set your mind at ease to the tropical breeze And Uncle playing slack key We used to spend all day at the beach Shorebreak, fishing and sunburnt cheeks Take me back take me back take me back Take me back to you You know that I Try not to live in the past But when my mind starts to run then it sure runs fast Clear skies and that green green grass In the valley of the kings On that old rope swing And if you climb up in the tallest tree Get a quick glimpse of what the day might be Then you'll know that deep inside I'm still alive So whenever you're lost at sea
Midnight 03:09
You want it you got it Make your mind up let's get things clear Your living life close to the edge staying high like a chandelier Patience not a strong suit Never wanna cramp your style But if you know what's good Then it's understood when it's time I'll be hitting that dial so Wait til midnight For me maybe tease maybe please baby hold the phone tight Don't try to do it yourself Wait til midnight Holding cold alone under the golden moonlight Don't start ringing the bell Lost in the moment Pop another bottle of wine 11 o'clock hand spinning And i can't wait to see what I find Just thinking about you Alone got me ready to run Just keep those little hands busy baby and we'll be up til we're seeing the sun and
Hotting Up 03:40
Before we met was a chill cold breeze that would spill asking what have you done for me lately? I spent my days and nights alone calling the bar my home staggering down State Street but then a glimpse of a light burning and burning bright An ember in your stare please baby I know this is right put your hands in my pocket my picture in your locket situation's hotting up nobody gonna stop it I'm hotting up Ooh baby I'm hotting up Summertime weather is better but not enough I'm hotting up Baby I'm hotting up Wanna catch a fever Wanna be a believer Hotting up As nights get colder i'm told that I should be bold And take up a level But every path that leads back to getting what i want Is a deal with the devil It's just a spark in the night burning and burning bright If we can keep this friction hitting I know we'll ignite Tossed in the fire, fueled by desire Messages hotting up burning through the wire
I know you You know me Better than we wanna believe I wanna hear you say something 'Something' better be please I've been down on my knees Trying to find out what to believe I've always had a problem A problem with seeing what's real But you're giving me nothing And there's nothing I can't steal We might live in a song But I know we can never be wrong Cuz all I have Is all I can grab Don't you know I Only ever feel better having it all Knowing that your love never comes around helps nothing at all Made up memories can be strong Now I know the most you and I can be is nothing at all Right on cue You had me Thinking that inevitably I'd be the one left guessing Guess I'll always be Lost in reality Life is what I want it to be You keep saying I'm crazy Maybe I'm a little undone Vision's getting hazy Been staring at the sun and I'm just trying to find My silly little misplaced mind
867 04:11
It's been 8 weeks 6 days 7 hours Since you took my life away Standing underneath a street light Hoping you don't notice me Making sure that he doesn't stay And I just can't believe it's real Can't believe you couldn't feel Just know that I won't let another man steal what's mine Just need a little time And I know there can't be much more to say Cuz all you do is talk talk talk Why won't he just take a walk walk walk? Can't take what's mine mine mine I'm just looking for a sign I just need a little time 867 watching the clock tick You say you're moving on but the words don't stick You need a man to give you what you need 867 reasons that's me 8 weeks 6 days 7 hrs Since you made the great mistake You said we were moving too fast but i know the truth's that what you feel is more than your heart can take And I know you're just playing games But inside you feel the same Now lie and tell him that you're glad that he came Cuz your mine I just need a little time And i know that there can't be much more to say
Guns Out 02:54
I'm under attack Called you right back I get the feeling that you won't calm down You've got a trigger finger that you like to squeeze Coincides with your quick draw mouth I don't know the basics I don't know if I can make it Baby you've got your guns out Firing your words until it runs out You're crazy Put your guns down I know You know oh no look what you've done now You can't take it back I'm fading to black Wonder if you've ever heard of 'live and let live' Cuz every bullet that you put into the air darlin Is every promise to you I can't give And although I'm persuasive Tomorrow is wasted When you overreact there's nothing holding you back From knowing friend or enemy Just a shot in the dark never missing your mark Handing out the death penalty And you do what you do Never considering what I go through And I'm holding on to every last breath I get And I don't know if I'll pull through
The 'X' on your calendar Is the day when your skies turn black Hit the road weary traveler Dedicated to the wheels never going off track You say you want me need me never leave me 'Baby won't you please unpack!' But the words that you say are the words that just may be the words that you can't take back We're moving at an inevitable disaster I can't stop it moving forward faster I'm asking Can you hold the wheel for a second now dear? I just wanna make things clear One cup of coffee and I'm on my way home No brakes in the danger zone And you know you don't mind You know you don't mind no Don't call me an amateur Even though I never get it right As we approach imminent damage We both still sleep right through the night You say you're done you leaving you've got your reasons And you don't want to start a fight But the words that you say are the words that just may be the words that can make it alright

Hotting Up is the next step in the progression of our sound. It's the most complete album we've ever made. The songs, performances, production and end result have never been better. It's a beat-driven uptempo record, but still contains the signature drum & bass, rocking guitars and catchy melodies/harmonies that distinguish our sound. Pop it in, turn it up and enjoy!
