Track Name: Tales That I Tell
Well, I gave him the world my eyes opened wide
He left me at prom, cheated and lied
The girl was mean and empty and bland
But I still wear his rind on the finger of my hand
These tales that I tell come from days not so swell
When love wet the ground, not looking I fell
My luck shot to shit but I’ve still got my wit
So I quite the drinking, my heart’s opened a bit

Tales that I tell
Tales that I tell
Tales that I tell
Fare thee well

Now silver spoon guy wears a blazer and tie
Women in high heels too many to decide
I threw my bottle straight at his head
Man I wish I would have chose his best friend instead
These tales that I tell come from days not so swell
When love wet the ground, not looking I fell
My luck shot to shit but I’ve still got my wit
So I quite the drinking, my heart’s opened a bit

Tales that I tell
Tales that I tell
Tales that I tell
Fare thee well

Mister pretty of the city never one to have wit
Night came around we just couldn’t quit
A wife, a girlfriend, neither was me
So I packed my bags and moved from the sea
These tales that I tell come from days not so swell
When love wet the ground, not looking I fell
My luck shot to shit but I’ve still got my wit
So I quite the drinking, my heart’s opened a bit


Tales that I tell
Tales that I tell
Tales that I tell
Fare thee well
Track Name: Let It Live Free
Some preach about judgment
Some teach about hate
Some talk of their rivals
and ways to separate
let it be free, let it be free, let it live free

You can try to force a history
that has so many sides
like tryin’ to force the ocean
to go against the tide
let it be free, let it be free, let it live free

Let it be free in my heart
Let it be free in my mind
time after time
Let it live free

We're spinning on an axis
We are turning within space
some will race the time
til' there's nothing left to chase
let it be free, let it be free, let it live free

Some say the change is coming
I say it's already here
You can feel the pulse gettin’ louder
year after year
let it be free, let it be free, let it live free
Track Name: Let's Go
Well I rose to meet the skyline but the sky fell to the Earth
And the people oh they gathered through their pain and their hurt
Then when day became the the nighttime, revenge was the word
But it's a lie to feel the fight will regain our worth

So let's go let's say goodbye let's leave let’s find our peace. Let's go Let's go

Now ten years in to the timeline we've lost both lives and faith
Turned and idol out of anger, traded oil for the grave
And we'll fall with this violence but in peace we'll rise again
So look for light within the sunshine but don't forget the shade

So let's go let's say goodbye let's leave let’s live in peace. Let's go Let's go

It's a journey it's a trip your face is blurred now come on home
A single word upon my lips my soul is stirred you're not alone
Track Name: The Same Old Ground
Hey little sister, don’t be afraid
Even though that’s what the newspapers seem to say,
with desperation.
Hey little sister, I know its tough
Money ain’t being shared but god knows there’s enough,
to arm a nation.

We all come back again,
to the same old ground,
the one where we began

Hey little sister, it’s the same old song,
If we all think we’re right, well who the hell is wrong,
so we fall apart.
Hey little sister, don’t lose your smile,
Even though it seems like love has gone out of style,
I hear your beating heart.

We all come back again,
to the same old ground,
the one where we began

We fall apart, we fall apart...
But I hear your heart.

We all come back again,
to the same old ground,
the one where we began
Track Name: Slow It Down
I gotta slow it down, slow it down
Slow it down to get that far

'Cause when I move quick, oh man it won't stick
And then I'll ask myself, what went wrong?
I gotta sit back and somehow relax
Or I'll be singing that same old song

I gotta slow it down, slow it down
Slow it down to get that far

We want it all now, but some don't care how
They'll push you to the ground, to rise on up
And well they fall flat, and then we're right back
No matter what they have it's not enough

I gotta slow it down, slow it down
Slow it down to get that far

You know speed it ain't for me
So let's take our time and do it right
Track Name: Wake Your Heart
You’ve been scarred, caught off guard
It’s hard to face the days that changed our grace
But wake your heart again

I’ve been tried, my heart has died
But now it sighs in lie’s demise
Won't you wake your heart again

She’s barred the door but can’t ignore
Her core still soars, true love endures
And wakes your heart again
We can wake our hearts again

I think its time you laid with me
We can laugh and share the mystery
It is time for love to be

You can try to sway
The course of fate
But true love wakes to resonate
And wake your heart again

She steps in to a truth so new
Construes the view, to see right through
And wake my heart again

With a world to seek, to you I reach,
To flee with me across the sea,
To wake your heart again
We can wake our hearts again

I think its time you stayed with me,
We can laugh and share the mystery,
It is time for love to be
Track Name: Electric Love
I... I’m feeling peculiar
I... I want to slide closer to her
She has a beauty, my words they cannot place
She moves right through me,
I lose all sense of time and space

I want your lips I want your lust
I wanna feel your electric love
I want your fix I want your touch
I wanna feel your electric love

She... she’s pulling me nearer
She... she’s only gonna make it clearer
I feel desire spiral through my veins
I never felt as such
And trust I will not be the same

Oh Darling pleaase give me your hand
I hold a promize but make no demands

I want your lips I want your lust
I wanna feel your electric love
I want your fix I want your touch
I wanna feel your electric love
You electrify me with your electric love
Track Name: Clackin' Heels
I hate the sound of clackin’ heels
They drive me wild with an urge to kill
Most women are crazy as hell

‘Cause these cats are cats
Purrin’ to scratch
Lickin’ their paws with the mice that they catch
Most women are crazy as hell

Waitin’ for their bowl of cream
Grinnin’ with their little schemes
Most women are crazy as hell

And if they end up all alone
They’ll suck your meat right off the bone
Suck your meat right off of the the bone

‘Cause I hate the sound of clackin’ heels
They drive me wild with an urge to kill
Most women are crazy as hell
Track Name: Touch The Lightning
Hands of destruction, hold me by the collar.
I take a sip to slip away.
The spell of illusion looks like how I want it,
but when I reach there's nothing there

The skies are calling, I want to touch the lightning
And I am falling into the outer space

Stir from submission, instinctive intermission.
A pause to recollect myself
Cheap entertainment, pass on that temptation,
I'll toss it all into the wind.

The skies are calling, I want to touch the lightning
And I am falling into the outer space

Look up at the stars, wonder who we are.
But we know this place isn't what it seems
We're reaching out, from the past. Walls of sand, never last
Into the sky, Into the breeze. Without restraint I feel the peace

The skies are calling, I want to touch the lightning
And I am falling into the outer space
Track Name: Choir of The Dead
Stood with his back turned from death
Heavy was his smokin’ pistol hummin’ with lead
There wasn’t a thing to stand in his path
Just the flames of his furious, fiery wrath
He came into this world believin’ in something
Discovered a man ‘aint guaranteed nothing

But I swear I’ve heard him whistlin’ at night
Just a sad man’s breath nobody in sight

He rose in the mornin’ lickin’ his lips
Devil in his eyes and gun at his hip
He strode through the desert to a desolate place
Sweat drippin’ down his criminal face
He rested the barrel between his teeth
Couldn’t pull the trigger for the final relief

But I swear I’ve heard him whistlin’ at night
Just a sad man’s breath nobody in sight

His insides turned to black. Heart was broken and cracked
No one to save him. No one to save him. That’s the fact

He fell to his knees feelin’ half the man
The coward crawled back through the sand
He couldn’t take his so he had to take theirs
His pride had died, his soul wasn’t there
Bullets flew straight through the breeze
The town painted red, children fell to their knees

His insides turned to black.Heart was broken and cracked
No one to save him. No one to save him. That’s the fact

He called himself mayor a city his own
On an empty street he died alone
Track Name: Can't See The Stars
Don't be unkind. Don't be cruel. And mean to who you love
They're all cryin' in the streets from your fires
Well the loot, yeah it's new, you broke that glass right through
And the shit that you stole’s got you high

Now I can't see the stars in the city tonight
Well the fire's in my eyes and the feelin's just not right
No I can't see the stars tonight

Don't be unkind. Don't be cruel. And mean to who you love
Dragged him out in the streets, broke his hands
Well the view that he drew, it sent you through the roof
But what lasts is the laugh you'll never have

Now I can't see the stars in the city tonight
Well the blood's in my eyes and the feelin's just not right
No I can't see the stars tonight

I looked out into space but the stars they never came
As the day began to break the sun returned again

Now I can't see the stars in the city tonight
Now I can't see the stars in the city tonight
Well the view was askewed but somehow it's all right
'Cause I might see the stars tonight
