about

Pelle's father was recently diagnosed with high-risk MDS, a rare form of blood cancer (also called pre-leukemia). All songs on this album are inspired by her father's diagnosis, and how it has affected her and her family. The album is "Pay What You Wish," with all proceeds of album sales going to the MDS Foundation and MDS research.

Track Name: Kick It In
You always need to feel worse
You cannot feel better first
You know it doesn't quite hurt
You wish you believed your own words

Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in...

This is just another race you have to run
This is just another dive so take the plunge
Oh the journey isn't going to be fun
But you'll feel so alive when you're done

Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in...

This is just another mountain you can ski
After taking 2 or 3 shots of whiskey
This is just another cycling accident
You'll survive it but don't let yourself get bent

Out of shape and out of body out of mind
Oh, father you have always been too kind
And I'm so very thankful that you're mine
There were bells upon a hill, you make em chime

Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in....

What's this I feel behind me? Oh, no, it's just my shadow

But every time you find yourself flat on your face
You pick yourself up and get right back in the race

Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in.....
Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in, Kick it in.....
Track Name: Machine
Well if I want something you better believe that I get it
Nothing can stop me, oh no, baby I just will not let it
And if you try to tell me different then you are just jealous
I've got everything I need now I just have to go sell it

If you do or don't believe I've got a few tricks up my sleeve
The choice is simple, take or leave your love your life your childhood dreams

CHORUS
I'm working like a Machine for you baby
I'm working like a Machine for you baby
So no no no no no please don't you break me
I'm working like a Machine for you baby
(Ha ha ha ha ha HA HA)

One thing that I know for sure is that I will not regret it
I'm doing this one for me, not university credit
If I don't take a chance now, then I will never forget it
My schedule's up to me cuz I'm the mother who set it (you said it!)

If you do or don't believe I've got a few tricks up my sleeve
The choice is simple, take or leave your love your life your childhood dreams

CHORUS

(piano VS machine solo)

As I lay me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake then that's a risk I'll have to take

CHORUS
