Iron Skullet An excellent follow-up to last year's Five, Outrun the Skyline delivers more of Beckett's optimistic and slightly funky synth creations with authentic '80s vibes. This album puts me in a good mood every time I play it. Favorite track: Endgame.

Track Name: Homewrecker
A slow night,
Whiskey at the bar alone.
Watch them drown out the day.
Close on down,
Don’t take in no sight nor sounds
And no one here know their names.

Door slam! Pause...,
She walks in with blood red claws.
Looking for a man to take home with her.
So hot, God damn!
Anything but innocent.
That evening dress says she’s a sinner.

I know she’s out here tonight, she’s wanting.
I see she’s anything but cheap.
So confident,
So independent.

CHORUS
She’s a homewrecker
She just wants a night of magic,
But don’t tell her man she plays,
She’s a homewrecker,
And I know I cant hack it baby
I cant chance it no..

Homewrecker
Out tonight.

She’s on the move,
Looking for the one to choose,
Do ya have a Gold card and a 911?
She’s got a space, On her ring finger it says…
'Baby I’m trouble I’m forbidden'

I know, I’ve seen this game before,
She’ll take you down, She'll break your heart yeah….

CHORUS
Track Name: Whirlwind
Well, I talk too much,
Get nervous you see,
What’s a Pretty Girl like you…
Talking to a guy like me?
I don’t understand much,
But, I know you’re hot.
Just gonna keep my cool, play along and work it up.

I start with “what’s your name”
You shoot a look right back.
A saucy kinda smile,
You say “Let’s skip all that. I just wanna have fun, do you get me boy”
And without a second thought.

You turn me round like a whirlwind baby.
You blow my mind got me talking crazy,
You’re hot tonight and the groove is feeling right.
You know I’ll do whatever it takes to please the lady.

You Spin me round like a whirlwind baby,
My mind is racing got me feeling crazy
Take my hand, coz tonight I’m gonna be your man,
Let's leave this city night and hit the stars.

Well the club is hot,
It’s an 80’s night,
Your kinda retro girl,
In neon lights,
You move a little bit closer,
Do you like that shirt?
I can smell the Jasmine crush,

Get close to move with you
Your skirt is tight to dance
I see those get me eyes
The look for hot romance,
"I just wanna have fun, do you get me boy”
And without a second thought.

I could have moved forever,
You locked me in to dance.
Don’t ever leave a good thing,
I should just grab the chance.
You see its really happening,
I feel alive tonight.
More of this bottled lightening,
I kiss you in the lights.
I could have danced forever
Your eyes have locked my heart
I feel you move in closer
No longer worlds apart
More of this bottled lightening
Its just what you desire,
Lets leave this city, hit the stars.


Chorus
Track Name: NewJack (Work a Grind)
I know your body
You know your name
I’d like to get to know you better.
You wanna dance?,
Cos I wanna dance.
Let's move together now.

And I'm only here for one more night
So let's get a drink and lose some time.

I can tell.
That your trying to get with me.
I don’t mind,
Long as we’re not gonna stop the beat.
And If your timing is right,
Well, then we can pull some moves and…. Dance

I've got to use it.
This chance that I got,
I never wanna say I never did.
I need to loose it.
This doubt that I have,
And you’re the girl I think will help me out

And Im only here for one more night
So lets get a drink and loose some time.

I can tell.
That your trying to get with me.
I don’t mind,
Long as we’re not gonna stop the beat.
And If your timing is right,
Well, then we can pull some moves and…. Dance
Track Name: Get To Know You
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.

Watched your style baby,
Checked your look.
Saw your body shape,
Now I'm hooked!.

Can't sit down baby,
I can't stand up.
You got me wondering.

Wanna try to know you now.
Wanna try to hold your hand,
Wanna show you love tonight,
First why don't we start to dance.

You got a way that you move, and baby its catching me,
You got a way that you move, and baby its catching me,
You got a way that you move, and baby its catching me,
You got a way that you move, and it get me.

Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.

Wanna try to know you now.
Wanna try to hold your hand,
Wanna show you love tonight,
First why don't we start to dance.

You got a way that you move, and baby its catching me,
You got a way that you move, and baby its catching me,
You got a way that you move, and baby its catching me,
You got a way that you move, and it get me.

Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
Time to get through,
Get to Know You.
