Track Name: Bust Your Lip
BUST YOUR LIP
Bust your lip – bust your throat
Sick and tired of your sour smoke.
Time slips by – like a speeding train
So much is missed – by being the same.
You don’t know my heart - You don’t know my heart.
You rattle off somethin - but I already know
What it is you’ve said - you already sold.
Nothin’s free – you give it away
You pay the price – everyday.
You don’t know my heart - You don’t know my heart .
Everybody knows – but nobody says
Everybody wants – but nobody does.
Bust your lip – bust your throat
Sick and tired of your shitty dope.
You don’t know my heart - You don’t know my heart.
Bust Your Lip
Track Name: Gonna Be A While
GONNA BE A WHILE
Come on baby let’s take a ride – to the other side
Head on down the Oregon coast – It’s a beautiful sight.
Sun will shine , waves will break – breakfast on the beach
Bad coffee and a morning roll – still outta reach.
If I know my heart- like I know my mind.
Gonna be a while - Gonna be a while
The open road is lookin good – south or east
Toss a coin – go ahead let’s be free.
If I know my heart like I know my mind .
Gonna be a while - be a while
Gonna take some time – Just to feed my mind
Gonna take it slow – Gotta let it go.
Gona be a while - Gonna be a while
Another day – another place – another scene
Go ahead – take your time – let’s be free.
If I know my heart – like I know my mind
Gonna be a while - be a while
Gonna take some time – Just to feed my mind
Gonna take it slow – Gotta let it go.
Track Name: Invisible
INVISIBLE
He walks upon the earth my friend
A creature of god – a creature of god
Breathing in the beautiful air
Beautiful air- along with smog.
There’s goodness in his heart
Chivalry in his soul
Most of the time – overlooked
Left out in the cold.
Invisible Man - Invisible man
Everywhere – everywhere.
Believe in yourself – search for truth
Search the truth – stir the soup
Lonesome stranger outta step
Outta step with who.
Beautiful Man - Invisible Man
Invisible Man - Beautiful Man
Everywhere - everywhere
Close your eyes – go to sleep
The night is here – pull the sheets
Tomorrow comes instinctively
Another chance for immunity.
Beautiful Man - Invisible Man
Invisible Man - Beautiful Man
Everywhere - everywhere
Invisible man – Invisible girl
All around the world
All around this old world
Invisible man – Invisible girl.
Track Name: Long Time Comin'
LONG TIME COMIN
Lookin past the window sill - The night is cold
Tthe world is still - Get to know yourself better.
Things we know fairly well
Then sometimes you just can’t tell
Where you’re at I know - Bitter blood in your veins
Sorry I just had to say - But you’ll be alright.
It’s a long time comin – long lonely road
Long time comin – here we go
The time is now the people spoke
The spell is cast the spell is broke
You’re on your own - Bitter blood in your veins
I’m sorry I just had to say - But you’ll be alright.
It’s a long time comin – long lonely road
Long time comin – here we go – here we go
All I see is love – ( love is all I need )
All I feel is love –( love is all I need )
All I want is love –( love is all I need )
( love is all I need ) ( love is all I need… )
It’s a long time comin – long lonely road
Long time comin – here we go – here we go
Track Name: Potions
POTIONS
Gotta sickness for potions – Gotta weakness for love
My strength is my weakness – I burn for love.
The fire that’s burning – Outta control
No I can’t quench it – It’s in my soul.
You’re my everything – You’re my diamond ring
My everything – I could be – You’re my everything.
Search in the shadows – Nose to the ground
Open your heart – Love is found.
The fire that burns – Emotion controls
The potion is good – Feeds my soul
You’re my everything – You’re my diamond ring
My everything – I could be.
You’re my diamond ring – You’re the song I sing
My everything – I could be -- You’re my everything
You’re my everything – You’re my diamond ring
My everything I could be – You’re my everything
Track Name: Quietly In The Night
QUIETLY IN THE NIGHT
We are flowing like the river
We are drifting through time
Passing by all them city lights
Quietly in the night – Quietly in the night.
Feel the current pulling - Pulling to the tide
Somewhere an ocean waits for you
Quietly in the night - Quietly in the night.
One voice is heard -Two hearts are moved
Three in the morning - Love is understood.
Your blue eyes been callin - Hold me in a trance
All the love that you share with me
Quietly in the night - Quietly in the night.
One voice is heard - Two hearts are moved
Three in the morning - Love is understood.
Track Name: Rollin' Stoner
ROLLIN STONER

Why are you - sayin those things
Negatives won’t - get you through
Don’t you hide - behind your scars
We all have - them too.
Drop the flame - that burns you deep
Douse the hurt - then refuse
Why are you – sayin those things
Negative – just won’t do.

Ya don’t wanna be – another rollin stone
Ya don’t wanna be – out here on your own
So please come home – please come home.

See your face – in a lotta faces
See your eyes – in too many places
Hear your name – all over the place
It breaks my heart.

Ya don’t wanna be – another rollin stone
Ya don’t wanna be – out here on your own
So please come home – please come home – please come home.
my little rollin stoner – my little rollin stone

( SOLO )

Ya don’t wanna be – another rollin stone
Ya don’t wanna be – out here on your own
So please come home – please come home – please come home.
my little rollin stoner – my little rollin stone.

( solo – out )
Track Name: Somedays
SOMEDAYS

You follow suit with the cards you are holding
No questions asked they are believers
All around the table – glances are stinging
While tobacco stained teeth – are straining to smile.

Cards are laid down some rough some are gentle
Laughter is forced from bellies of gamblers
The winner reaches – for the winnings
His heart is pounding – for his life he is fearing.

Some days are good days it’s true - Some days are bad days … not blue.

Boot heels are tapping the dealers is sneering
Back of his mind the escape he is planning
Offer of humor is weak – and forgotten
Plans for escape – are soon abandoned.

Some days are good days it’s true - Some days are bad days … not blue.

Another hand demands from the dealer
The dealer nods no one is leaving this table
While guns are toting – tongues are a wagging
When bullets fly – souls lay restless.

Some days are good days it’s true - Some days are bad days … not blue.

This went on and on and on
The sun stood three times then sat down
Five men lay dead – their bodies steaming
The waitress dreamed – and cleaned up the winnings
Smiled to herself – then took to singing .

Some days are good days it’s true - Some days are bad days too
Some days are good days it’s true – Some days are bad days … for you .
Track Name: Father & Son
FATHER & SON
Brother oh brother – I must confess
You’re not alone – alone in this mess.
Sister oh sister – What can we do
Stand in the way – or let it play through.
Everyone is out having fun
Every song a song to be sung.
Forever in life – Forever in death
Torture is guilt – in every breath.
A flicker of life – a fuse lit and cracked
The time we have lost – we’ll never get back.
Everyone is out having fun
Every song a song to be sung
Tell me – tell me – tell me – what have we done
Bother – sister – mother – father and son.
Everyone is out having fun
Brother – sister – mother – father and son.
Tell me – tell me – what do you see
A face in the crowd – or sweet destiny.
Everyone is out having fun
Every song a song to be sung
Tell me – tell me – tell me – what have we done
Brother – sister – mother – father and son.
Track Name: Desiree
DESIREE
From a long list of liars – she did come
No one knew to doubt what she said.
Everybody called her Trixie –but her name was Desiree
She stole my heart and soul in Winnipeg.
She acted like a southern bell – that was not true
She came from the town of Saskatoon.
Desiree – Desiree – what will it be – happiness or misery.
A voice of an angel – a tongue to twist a line
She even dropped a tear , sometimes.
Her lies were catchin up with her so then she disappeared
Vanished in the night – without a tear.
Desiree – Desiree – what will it be – happiness or misery.
Desiree – Desiree – what have you done to me
Brought me happiness then misery
Desiree – Desiree – what will it be – happiness or misery.
Track Name: Let's Be Strangers
LET’S BE STRANGERS
I don’t know where it is you’re goin
I don’t care what it is you do
All I care is that you keep on movin
Move along – baby move it on through
I don’t wanna fight with you baby
I don’t wanna fight no how
I don’t wanna fight with you baby
Let’s not fight – let’s be strangers.
I don’t no what you’re up to mister
I don’t care what it is you do
All I care is that you keep on movin
Move along – mister move it on through.
I don’t wanna fight with you mister
I don’t wanna fight no how
I don’t wanna fight with you mister
Let’s not fight – let’s be strangers.
I don’t wanna fight with the world now
But I’ll fight for my right to fight
If that don’t make any kinda sense now
Neither did the movie I saw last night.
Strangers – complete strangers.
Track Name: Take It Away
TAKE IT AWAY
Got no time – running outta time
It’s not too late – follow all the signs
Rain down on me
All of these questions remain to be seen.
It’s not alright – not even close to right
The modern reign – yeah the southern reign
Rain down on me
All of these questions – remain to be seen.
Take it away – take it away – set us free
Take it away – let us be.
The levy breaks – you should be ashamed
The modern reign – planning your escape
Rain down on me
All of these questions – remain to be seen.
Take it away – take it away – set us free
Take it away – take it away – let us be
Take it away – take it away – set us free .
Track Name: Ambush
AMBUSH
Drenched by the tears of heaven - Jealous of the midnight sky
Weary song – show no mercy - Part flower, part nymph
Full devour instinct - Deceiving tears – an ambush waits
There’s a vigorous joy - There’s a hungry grave
Behold the mighty – modern slave.
All for the tears – that we all share
All for the cheers – in the parade.
Down in the chambers - Judge is dealing lives
At the office party - They’re swapping wives
There’s an ear to the door - There’s a question of faith
Deceiving tears – an ambush waits.
All for the tears – that we all share
All for the tears – in the parade.
I’ve seen his disciples - A group of halfwit shits
Happy to follow the leading idiot
Drenched on the floor of heaven – Jealous of the starry sky
Deceiving tears – an ambush waits.
All for the tears – that we all share
All for the cheers – in the parade
All for the tears – that we all bare
All for the cheers – in the parade.
Track Name: Now Is The Time
NOW IS THE TIME
There’s dust on the bottle – Of such a fine wine
That’s waited for years – Now’s the time.
No more tears on your pillow – No more dust on the shelf
Just around the corner – There’s something else.
No wait until tomorrow – No wait until next time
No time left to borrow - Now is the time – Now is the time.
A look in your eyes I see somethin – Some happiness some faith
Fightin through the thunder – A storm takin place.
No more tears on your pillow – No more dust on the shelf
Just around the corner – is something else.
No wait until tomorrow – No wait until next time
No time left to borrow – Now is the time – Now is the time.
Now is the time – Now is the time – Now is the time.
Track Name: Tonight From Liverpool
TONIGHT FROM LIVERPOOL
It takes a long, long time - To get here from the other side
From London to Liverpool
Three hour ride brings me back to you.
Just the way I feel – I’m alright - Just the way I see it
I’m alright Tonight - yeah honey tonight
Frozen in Birmingham - Lost in space, in cold quicksand
Thought about my past - All my friends, my shadow cast
Just the way I feel – I’m alright - Just the way I see it
I’m alright - Tonight – yeah honey tonight.
Yeah – there’s a hurricane - Yeah – in my brain
Yeah it’s always the same - yeah .
Bus to bus and train to train - Brings me back to you again
Had a lot of time to think - I need some food, I need a drink.
Just the way I feel – I’m alright - Just the way I see it
I’m alright - Tonight – tonight – Yeah – honey tonight.
Track Name: Morning Sun
MORNING SUN
Came on fast hello hooray
Burnin out the wind and rain
Wash me clean once again
Lick me dry and heal my pain
Shining like the morning sun.
Sons and daughters, mothers & fathers
Hanging onto everything
Breathe the air country fair
I Got another day to sing.
Shining like the morning sun.
You captured me within your grasp
We give into your ancient past
Shining like the morning sun.
If you don’t mind late night flights
The morning sun feels so right
Earn a smile and lick my bones
Together we rise, we’re not alone
Shining like the morning sun.
You captured me within your grasp
We give into your ancient past
Shining like the morning sun.
Track Name: Trouble In Your Footsteps
TROUBLE IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS
Seems like only yesterday
Tomorrow has come and gone
I’ve been hanging on so hard
My fingers are numb.
I’ve been waiting at the station
I’ve been waiting here for you
With my future in a suitcase
And my heart so full of blue.
Nobody knows what you know
Nobody sees what you see
Nobody goes where you go
Everybody wants to be – Let them be.
Trouble in your footsteps
Tremble in your voice
Far away live the dreamers
You gotta make the choice.
Nobody knows what you know
Nobody sees what you see
Nobody goes where you go
Everybody wants to be - Set them free.
Track Name: Yonder Way
YONDER WAY
I am suspect and suspicious - Though I’ve done no wrong today
I’m guilty of free thinking - Lock me up, throw the keys away.
Cursed be the cursed now - Broken down – Yonder way
Freedom has been challenged - By the powers within our grace.
I’m a thief – I’ve never stolen - A killer – though I’ve never killed
Guilty – without reason - No matter what I say
Broken down – Yonder way - In my mind the wheels are turning
In my heart it is quicksand - Troubles there are many
I’m just trying to be a good man - Just trying to be a good man.
I’m a thief – I’ve never stolen - A killer – though I’ve never killed
Guilty – without reason - No matter what I say
Broken down – Yonder way.
