Track Name: Grin
Sittin’, drinkin’, thinkin’ ‘bout what be.
That something’s never drunk’n before.
Laughin’ while the crowd that surrounds me,
Seems to greet me through their lavish décor.

Flittin’ ‘bout a sea of delusion.
Fightin’ while the spirit gives in.
Soarin’ down the hatchet to freedom,
And suddenly the world starts to spin.

CHORUS
And I grin. And I grin.
And I grin as the birds keep on singing.
And I smile. Oh I smile.
And I smile as the bird’s keep on swinging.

If that’s the way they all keep on movin’
Keep groovin’ ‘bove the silk laden ground.
No one wants to think about landin’.
Fear the silk will tear all the way down.

Wonderin’ why they all keep on laughin’
Wing’s a flappin’ after wells run dry.
Party pointed towards that horizon,
Ain’t surprising everyone wants to fly.

Got to stay high! Got to stay high!
High ‘bove the clouds. Up through the crowd.
Trying to keep both my feet off the ground.
I stay high! Got to stay high!
High ‘bove the trees. Out with the breeze.
Flying out towards that big blue open sky.

CHORUS
Track Name: Bullet in the Dark
Sat behind a wooden desk
Another wooden soldier set to
War with what she wants and what she needs.
Crushed beneath the weight of all the
Life that sits atop her
Barely flinching as she bleeds.
Barely flinching as she bleeds.

Bitterly she draws her weapon
Points it at the night and fires
Hoping that she’ll blindly hit her mark.
Don’t care what she’s hitting
Just as long as someone pays.
Just a bullet in the dark.
Just a bullet in the dark.

PRECHORUS (3x)
Devil’s left his chamber and he’s coming for a round.

CHORUS (2x)
Bone dry, down to die,
Too hurt to laugh, too numb to cry,
Too worn down to even try
To keep on keeping on
Drawing down against the sun
The heat’ll slow the bullet’s run
All it needs to move is just a spark.
Don’t care what it’s hitting,
Just as long as someone pays.
Just a bullet in the dark.
Just a bullet in the dark.

PRECHORUS (3x)

CHORUS (4x)
Track Name: Don't Be Fooled by the Rain
Watching the world, slowly unfurled.

There’s nothing but blue skies turned to grey.

I can’t help but smile, gonna be rough for a while.
Gotta keep searching for better days.

PRECHORUS
Look past the storm, hope keeps you warm.

Laugh through the pain, ‘cause the pain is the norm.
Look and you’ll see, the whole world is smiling at me.
Then you’ll know what it is to be free.

CHORUS
Don’t be fooled by the rain,

The sun’s still shining.

Light’s just beyond the clouds peeking in.

Bitter days dragging on, so keep on rolling along,

‘Cause when it comes to the end, we’ll all be laughing again.

PRECHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: Do What You Can
Found an idea while going to sleep,
Hidin’ behind a couple of sheep.
Wrestled it down dragged it back from the deep.
Locked it up next to my bed.

So many times the idea got loose,
Tried to convince me it could be of use,
Chose to ignore it or give an excuse,
Choosing to kill time instead.

CHORUS (2x)
Do what you can ‘til you can’t.
Do what you will until you won’t.
Never forget that the others
Keep on doin’ while you don’t .

Well that idea fell in with some friends,
Those who’d seen it be seen ‘til the end.
Those who’d know there was time they could spend,
On helping it grow past a thought.

A few years pass and I’m watching TV,
I couldn’t believe what I came to see.
That damn idea was there without me.
Teachin’ me what I needed taught.

Doin’ while you don’t (8x)

BRIDGE (2x)
Do what you can.
Do what you won’t.
Never forget that the others are set.
To do what they do while you don’t.

CHORUS OUTRO
Track Name: My Ticket
Got my ticket and I’m waitin’ for the train to take me.
Don’t care where just hope it takes me far away.
Know that all’s I need is will, know I can’t keep standing still.

Gettin’ lost had never seemed a problem.
As long as there is somewhere else to go.
If I never stop to stall, am I ever lost at all?

Need to keep on runnin’
know the man’ll still keep gunnin’
for a chance to break my spirit
I can hear ‘em close behind.
Finally I look back and see
that there is no one chasin’ me
A race against myself where I am bound to lose my mind.

Roses keep on calling me to linger.
Say it’s best to always heed the call.
How’s someone to be the best.
When they’re stoppin’ with the rest.

Pull away, resume the steady pace.
Bow to all the others and accept my fate with grace.
Always try and stay ahead.
If I’m movin’ I ain’t dead.

I can’t remember why I went.
Lost all my chances to repent.
Guilt’s stoppin’ me from tryin’ to live.
If only I could just forgive. Just forgive.
Just forgive.

Need to keep on runnin’ know the man’ll still keep gunnin’ for a
Chance to break my spirit I can hear ‘em close behind.
Finally I look back and see that there is no one chasin’ me
A race against myself, a race against myself.
A race against myself where I am bound to lose my mind.
Track Name: Carves the Stone
Fire tears at skin and bone.

Like the river carves the stone.

Shaped by demons meant to grind us whole.
Lost and tired tryin’ to find our role.

Wretched times take their toll on me.
All’s to do is let the soul run free.

Always knew the night would turn to day.
Hard to trust your gut to know the way.

CHORUS

So you raise your head, walk on by.

See as the weaker ones break and cry.
Lift a hand for your fellow man,

or watch as humanity rots and dies.
Lift your boots up off the ground,
or else the dirt will drag you down.
Always keep on reachin’ for the sky.

Rosie eyes can cure the blind.
There’s too much love left to find.
Busted soldiers wounded by the fight.
Broken spirits mended by the light.

CHORUS
Track Name: Growing to Stand
I never knew that you were s’posed to say I love you.
I never knew that you were s’posed to really care.
What’s wrong my dear? Why you still here?

Is it fear keeps you here tonight beside me.
Is it pain that drains the soul from under you?
Vixen be gone. Stayed way too long
 or maybe...
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.

All those times you came to find me drunk and willing.
Not a shilling paid for one mere afterthought.

Why can’t you see, us could be we?


Well perhaps you put a potion on my table.
Barely able just to break on past those eyes.

To my surprise, I don’t despise 
that maybe...
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.

Can’t you see that we can never be?
We’re too far apart.

Love was void from the deal. We were doomed from the start.
Yet you’re stuck in my thoughts. Fought the battle in vain cause it’s plain.
Just a tease! Meant to please! Just a floozy who was in it for the fun.

In my dreams, now it seems.
You’ve somehow snaked your way and now it’s done.


I’ve tried to fight this feeling that I never knew would come,

Tried to see you when I’d need you just a dame under my thumb.

But now you’re stuck in my thoughts, weighin’ heavy on my mind.
Never thought you’d bend my knees, send hot shivers down my spine.
But now I do. All thanks to you.

‘Cause I’m growing to stand the sight,
although I try so hard to fight it,
That I might just be excited,
slightly scared not quite delighted.

Cause you’re stuck in my thoughts, fought the battle in vain, cause it’s plain.
I’m growing to stand the sight of,
I’m growing to stand the sight of you.
Track Name: The Nut Song
Once there was a rock who wanted to become a tree.
The essence of insane the other rocks would all agree.
Never knew a pebble who could ever make the cut.
That’s why the pebble knew to grow he’d have to be a nut.

CHORUS
So grow a little,
Need to show a lotta bit of
Backbone in the face of those who say it can’t be done.
Rise above the others. Wisen up.
‘Least the nuts are always reaching for their moment in the sun.

All the other rocks’d thought it had to be a joke.
Never knew a nut could ever grow into an oak.
Even though the nut could never know what he would find.
Knew enough to know to leave the other rocks behind.

CHORUS
When the oak was grown he stared around the open field.
Wondered ‘bout the wonders that his life would surely yield.
Knew the world had changed and it had changed forever more.
‘Cause every year a thousand other nuts’d hit the floor.

CHORUS (2x)
Track Name: Slow Burn
Just another tattered soul.
Embers burnt out into coal.
What’s the worth? Roaring high into the night.
When all I want is a little kiss from the light.

Sparks dispersing into ether.
Building up the blaze was bold.
Never bothered close inspection.
Funny thing, I was never even cold.

PRECHORUS
The fire claims another
Distracted by the dancing flame.
Bide your time, might make you mine.

CHORUS
When you’re love’s a slow burn.
When you’re love’s a slow burn.

Every step with great intention.
Each foot squarely in the mud.
Champion of misdirection.
Paid for each mistake in blood.

PRECHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: The Devil's In Her Eyes
Was a time that I loved her,
Was a time that she glowed.
Heart that shone like the sunshine.
Soul as pure as a rose.

CHORUS
Roses wither and die.
All that’s left are the thorns when the petals all dry.
Hope to see her bright soul once again until then...
The Devil’s in her eyes.
The Devil’s in her eyes.

Saw the frost take the garden.
Saw the white turn to grey.
Did my damndest to save her.
Yet she still slipped away.

CHORUS

Lost amongst all the madness,
Hopes it might dull the pain.
Fighting off bitter sadness.
Caught in her dark refrain.
Smiles sadly in victory.
Crawls back into the hole.
All the pain that she’s feeling.
Bitter wounds she’s concealing.

Hope to see her bright soul once again until then...

The Devil’s in her eyes. (4x)
Track Name: Curtain Call
One day the lights will all be gone and darkness will remain.
The curtain’s doomed to crush us all and end our regal reign.
So grab a drink and raise it high, embrace your fellow man.
Cause screw the world we’re doing fine.
At least the best we can
Track Name: Home
Down through the hills, toward the sea.
A candle burns, it beckons me.
There you stand waiting to hear the tale.
Of the one who left the island, the soul who set sail.

Keep on stumblin’.
Keep stumblin’ on.

Tried hard to keep him, couldn’t hold on.
Slipped through the cracks just as soon as I’d gone.
Could’ve had quite a life had I stayed.
Sometimes a life’s not worth livin’ one way.

Gotta keep on stumblin’.
Keep stumbling on.
Gotta keep on stumblin’.

CHORUS
(Home) Carried back by the wind.
(Home) Gone so long it’s a sin.
Tried hard to forget.
Can’t let go just yet.

Left all my sorrows so far behind.
So long to troubles, out of my mind.
Up past the mountains, rise toward the sun.
I wish you could catch me, wish you could run.

Gotta keep on stumblin’.
Keep stumblin’ on.
Gotta keep on stumblin’.
Keep stumblin’ on.

CHORUS
Track Name: Should've Known
Babe you broke your evil spell.
Dragged me down into your hell.
Should’ve known you had a tell.
Should’ve known to never let me love you.

Broke my heart to slake your lust.
Let it shine out through the rust.
Let it burn out into dust.
Should’ve known to never let me love you.

PRECHORUS
Burned and battered dragging on,
Crawling towards a brighter dawn.
Turned around and alls I see,
A fire blazing after me.

CHORUS
Flames’ll lick the heavens when
I’ll love you like I did again.
Swear to god now this and then
Should’ve known to never let me love you.

Didn’t know how much you’d take
Sacrifice my soul to make me
Go to Hell for Heaven’s sake
Should’ve known to never let me love you.

Flags of red flew through the sky
Kept my gaze you had my eye
Woke up just in time to cry.
Should’ve known to never let me love you.

PRECHORUS

CHORUS

Should’ve known
When you whispered little nasties in my ear.
Should’ve known,
You’d keep me close not outta love but outta fear.
Should’ve known,
When we got going that you’d try and change the game.

PRECHORUS

CHORUS
