This band is a celebration of every sonic movement borne of the Motor City; the well-crafted pop-soul of Motown, to the sheer in-your-face bravado of Parliament Funkadelic, to the raw untamed energy of the MC5. ... more

Track Name: Diamond Disco
She gave a tribal scream you coulda heard from miles away Passion and ecstasy, givin’ her all that she could take

What a scene, I Remember it just like a dream It was destiny and a moment you never forget

One crazy night in Frisco, there with Diamond Disco Yeah we were comin’ undone just havin’ the time of our life

Fist poundin’ at the door, Oh She jumped up terrified There he stood, mad as hell, with a loaded pistol at his side

What a scene, I Remember it just like a dream It was destiny and a moment you never forget

One crazy night in Frisco, there with Diamond Disco Yeah we were comin’ undone just havin’ the time of our life

I’m thinkin’ how will this go, there with Diamond Disco? Then we were duckin’ for cover as the bullet they started to fly

It was out of control. I Said "Take my hand Baby, lets Go” Then we went crawlin’ out the backdoor

I’m thinkin’ how will this go, there with Diamond Disco? Yeah we were shaken and scarred runnin’ down the road.. But We got out Alive

Then I Noticed you getting loud, then fist’s began to fly

You got this started and now I'm gonna finish the show.

And now my head is stuck in overdrive

You know whats coming so you better get ready

(Chorus) (Shotgun a Box Of Shells) will cut through your defenses ,

but It’s (too late as you can tell) I’ve gone and lost my mind,

I’m (all out of sympathy) the time has come to end this,

Cuz you (brought out the worst in me) You stepped across the line brother.

Track Name: Yesterday Morning
Yesterday Morning I stared out my window
I Picked up my pen girl and wrote you this song

They say a man ain’t suppose to cry
I try to play it cool, but it ain’t no use
I know, I know, a man ain’t suppose to lie
So I tell the truth. Girl I’m still missing you

A little sign in the night
To say you want to get together and make everything alright

Baby leave the light on, yeah
If you want me to come over
Don’t ya know I’m wide open
Let’s try and work it out
Maybe we can lie on it
Just surrender to emotion
leave the light on, yeah
If you want me back around

I long to hold you in my arms again
Come on and
Shine On – Shine On
I need and want your tender touch and all the joy you bring me
Come on and
Shine On – Shine On

Leave the light on and i will come over
Don't you know I'm wide open, ooh let's work it out.
Lie in my arms baby come and surrender to emotion
Leave the light on yeah if you want me back around.
Track Name: Drop Top Lover
Drop Top Lover whatcha put me through? Silicone and makeup sure been good to you Dug a little deeper and I saw the truth I could never make it with a girl like you, So long..

She was delicious, yeah you know that it’s true Intoxicating, that girl will put a spell on you She said “Do you want to dance?” I said “I think I do”, then it turned into romance About a week or two. Should've known yeah.. it was only for fun.. Listen what I Say..

Got to get me outta this, gotta find a way out uh huh. I Gotta stop pretending ‘cuz I can’t take another minute more.

Everything we did, I felt was so true. A little too high baby when I spoke those words to you. I never meant to say “I’m in love” Now I’m wondering what the hell I’ve done..
Track Name: Down Jefferson
When the lights go down in Detroit you can hear the sirens singing in the air. Yeah yeah.
Its a desperate situation if you're not from here you couldn't understand.
The system works against us, they promise hope while stealing from our hand.
But you know I am a survivor, I won't play their game I've got a plan.

We can do better if we stand up together.

Brother don't you worry there's no need to fear. Think of all the struggles we have faced throughout the years. It changes your perspective when the bullet tears a hole. It's time for us to take control and do this on our own Down Jefferson.

On the streets are kids are dying, you can feel the anger in their hollow stares.
And the numbers keep on climbing, but it doesn't seem that anybody cares.
They say love can make a difference, but I swear to god my faith is growing dim.
Cuz when I stand and speak against it, the world is there to knock me down again.
Pre-chorus.
We can do better if we stand up together.

We can do better let's all come together.

No need to worry. Fear isn't worth it. Change your direction. Come with us Down Jefferson.

Brother don't you worry there's nothing left to fear. Think of all the trials we overcame through the years. It changes your direction when the bullet reaches home. Time to take control and do this on our own Down Jefferson.
