about

I always appreciated bands/artists who released albums with more than one or two good songs and really loved it when ALL of the songs were good--Like Nirvana's Nevermind. Or Alice and Chain's albums, or most Beatle albums. So, I decided to do that as well. Even doing some different styles, I hope they're not too different. Like if "I Wanna Rock" is what attracted you to this album (This song would be the black sheep of the family), you'll still be able to get into the other songs as well. I think the album is great, I'm very happy with the tracks chosen for this album. I hope you are as well.-Trend.

Track Name: Got A Job To Do
Got A Job To Do
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

Had a premonition
Don't I know you well
When you're in this condition
I know you want to drag me to hell
You like to talk about feelings
Sometimes you even ask about mine
And all I ever want to tell you is
If you're okay, I'm okay and everything's fine
Wasn't I there to help you
Wasn't I there to help you through
Now I need you to get behind me
Baby, I got a job to do

Oh, don't look at me that way
I'm not saying never
I'm just saying not today
No I don't want to go over
Your parents house for dinner
It always turns out bad, somehow
Besides I've got a lot of stuff to do
And I've got to do it--do it now

Your mama thinks I'm a losed
Your daddy calls me "The Fag"
Is it any wonder I hate going over there
It's a friggin' drag
I'm up against some stiff competition
I've got to stick to my plan
It would be nice if you could be like Tammy Wynette
And stand by your man

Don't you know I'm not doing this just for me
I'm doing it as much for you
Can't you see I have no time to waist
Baby, I got a job to do
Track Name: Phony on a Pony
Phony on a Pony
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

Hey, what's your deal
Hey, what's your big deal
Hey, what's your deal
Are you for real
Hey, what's you're big deal
Are you for real

Hey, what's your deal
Hey, what's your big deal
Are you for real
Or are you a phony
Are you a phony
I think you might be a phony
And you know why
I saw you
Riding your pony
Like a phony
Riding your pony
Like a phony
I'm on to you
I'm on to you
Track Name: Some Say Love Is...
Some Say Love Is...
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

Some say love is
Just a game
Win or lose
It's all the same
Whether you're a player or getting played
Who the hell cares long as you're getting layed

Some say love is nothing but a fantasy
There's no such thing
It doesn't exist
Some say love is a tangible reality
A powerful force
To be reckoned with

Some say love
Will only cause you pain
Some say love
Is a crying shame
Some say love is
The best thing ever
Some say love
Not for me... never
Some say love is
The source of our creation
From its emanation
We were born
I can agree with almost everyone
I know I'm not the only one
Ripped and torn
Ripped... torn
Ripped... torn

Now you know the kind of love
I'm talking about
It doesn't take a genius
To figure it out
So why, when it happens to you
You're asking everybody
What you should do
I've been in love so many times
For an hour, a month, for many years
Funny how such a beautiful feeling
Can send you reeling
With a vail of tears
So now, if you want to make the scene
Hope you understand me and what I mean
Talking 'bout love's cons and pros
When it comes to love
Nobody knows

All you ever wanted was to love and be loved by the one you love
Its not so much
All you ever wanted was to love and be loved by the one you love
It's not too much
Track Name: I Got You
I'm an optimistic skeptic
With cynical tendencies
My hectic life requires supplements
For my chemical deficiencies
Anyone would think I'd be unhappy and sad
Anyone, but me that is--I don't feel so bad
In fact, I would say the opposite is true
I get what I need and
I got you
You got me, too.
And even though I've got a million things to do
I'll always find the time to be with you
You lift me up when I'm feeling down
I know I'm lucky that you stuck around
We're going places you and me
Wide open spaces--just have some faith in me
Sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose
Sometimes it doesn't matter what path you choose
I got you and
You got me too.
You know I love music
Not just any old kind
I need to feel the impression
On my body and
In my mind
I got you
You got me, too
Surely there's a syndrome
Describing me
Arrested development
Well, that may be
In my pursuit of happiness
When I encounter things causing stress
I look at you
And know what to do--keep my cool 'cause
I got you
You got me, too
I got you
Now listen
Do you want someone to fill your emptiness
With love and passion and tenderness
You might ask yourself
What are you giving?
Do you have a lust for life or
Are you just living
Track Name: You Better Think Twice
You Better Think Twice
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

You can tell me
All your worries
If you please, be concise
But if you think
You're ever gonna worry me
You better think twice
Ahhh, you better think twice

You can think
You know better
Because your thinking is more precise
But if you think
You're ever gonna change my mind
You better think twice
Ahhhh, you better think twice

You can think
I'm easy going
You can think I'm oh, so nice
But if you think
Anything goes
You better think twice
Ahhh, you better think twice

If you think
We can make it happen
Here's a piece of friendly advice
If you think
You can screw me over
You better think twice
Ahhh, you better think twice

You can think
I should be coping
Without my device
But if you think you can make me
Just say no
You better think twice
Ahhh, you better think twice
Track Name: Along the Way
Along the Way
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

I don't know
What you're running from
Or what you're running to
Baby, why don't you
Stop and see me
Along the way
See me
Along the way
Night or day
Come what may
Yeah, oh yeah
Hey babe
Where ya gonna go
Don't think you know
Even so
Why don't you love me
Along the way
Love me
Along the way
Night or day
Come what may
Yeah, oh yeah

Oh, think about it
Think about it now
You never learned to love
Let me show you how
You're looking past me
Because you don't know
And I won't ever hold you down
You're free to come and go
But I want you to stay and
Love me
Love me
Love me
Along the way
Love me
Along, along the way
Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

I hope I see you
On the other side
Courtesy of our redeemer
Might just see you on the other side
I hope I see you
On the other side

I hope I see you on the other side
If we can make it to
The other side
The system's breaking down
Can't you see it
The system's crumbling down
Falling down around you

I hope I see you
On the other side
If we can make it to
The other side
If I should
Take off before ya
I'll be there
Waiting for ya
If you make it 'round to
The other side
I hope I see you
On the other side
If we can make it to
The other side
And the system can't be fixed
When the whole damn thing
Has been deep sixed
I'll see you 'round on
The other side
Don't know how it will be
That remains a mystery
I'll see you 'round on
The other side
I think I could be happy
If you were there with me on
The other side
On the other side
Track Name: Do You Follow (Me)
Do You Follow
Words and music by Danny Bulla/Trendlaser

Tell you 'bout a girl I met
Tweeting on the internet
Tweeting on the internet
Somewhere out in cyber space
Connected through an interface
Our thoughts were mingling
I could feel a tingling
She's a fan of The Walking Dead
Tell you every word that's said
And she loves that guy on theshow
You know the one with that friggin' crossbow
I was struck by something she said
"Do you know how to tweet the dead?"
I could tell from her first tweet
She was pretty neat
Had to laugh about the things she said
Do you follow me
Are you following me
I follow her and she's following me
Do you follow me

Too bad she lives about a million miles away
I want to talk to her every single day
I wonder if she's hot
But, even if she's not
I really love the things she has to say
Do you follow
Are you following me
I'm not the leader
And neither is she
Do you follow me

Tell you 'bout a girl I met
Tweeting on the internet
Tweeting on the internet
Somewhere out in cyber space
Connected through an interface
Our thoughts are mingling
I can feel a tingling
If I was a movie star
I could bump into her in an oxygen bar
Saying, Jenny honey, you are it
Come on, baby, take a great big hit

Bet you're thinking I'm as stupid as can be
You may be right
I wouldn't disagree
Why should I feel shame
When you would do the same
Oh yes you would if you were me
Do you follow
Are you following me
Do you follow me

Do you follow me
Do you follow me
Do you follow, follow, follow, follow, follow, follow, follow...
