Track Name: Long Road
We’re on our way back out on tour again
Guess it’s something I can’t help
Heading West on out to Calgary
I hear the women there are something else
See a man walking down the road and smiling
And offered him a ride into the next town
He said : no thanks my friend, but I think I’d rather try my luck and walk this one out
‘Cause it’s much better when I take the long long road
‘Cause I can’t bear to miss a thing
I take the long long road
Just wish I could have brought some of my friends
Feet are tired and my soul’s worn thin
Guess there’s only so much booze can help
I ain’t complaining it’s just this state I’m in
I’m well aware I brought it all on myself
People get Lucky living life on the high road
Others have to work hard have to make it count
And then there’s ones like me who have to make
A lot of bad mistakes before we figure it out
But we figure it out.
Track Name: Heart of the Storm
Do you believe in miracles or do you throw it all to waste
And have you ever seen the gods above or is it all just stars and space
Everybody’s talking ‘bout the end and if it’s near
Whether it’s in a couple years from now the answer’s still unclear
But if it’s real, then we’re in the heart of the storm
And our fate is sealed, living in the heart of the storm
And our fate is sealed, living in the heart the storm
The heart of a storm, the heart of the storm
Everything is fiction now ain’t nothing true to man
And I can’t believe nothing that I read unless it’s written by my hand
Ya we all got what we want now is it really what we need?
We all know the day will come we’ll have to face the raging seas
And if it’s true, then we’re in the heart of the storm
Between me and you, we’ve been living in the heart of the storm
The heart of a storm, the heart of the storm,
Since we were born
It’s this dream that I keep having every morning I wake up
When I can see the end of time down in the bottom of my cup
But I can’t tell if it’s real or if it’s just a dream
Or if it’s just some shit I saw on my TV.
Track Name: Bible Song
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, now that the devil’s come to town
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, now that my time has come around
Why don’t you pull out your almighty good book
Tell some stories, Ten Commandments, split the ocean,
Heal the blind, deaf, sick, feed the hungry, turn the water into wine at least one time
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, now that the devil’s come to town
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, now that my time has come around
Cause I’ve been sittin’ here since the beginning
Raising up fires and burning down armies
Placing kings and queens in thrones
Pushing power and greed through skin and bone
My sun’s on the rise – won’t be no bible song this time
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, now that the devil’s come to town
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, now that darkness is all around
Hey lord whatcha gonna do, I’m sure it’s pretty clear by now
Hey lord, tell ‘em that it’s true, tell’em it’s my time to wear the crown
Why don’t you pull out your almighty good book,
Tell some stories, Ten Commandments, split the ocean,
Heal the blind, deaf, sick, feed the hungry, turn the water into wine
It’s time to bring on the floods and the famine
Spread disease and punish the people, wreak some havoc,
Leave ‘em with all their sins and let ‘em suffer, show ‘em your deepest darkest side
Won’t be no bible song this time
Track Name: Brother
Ya I followed you I must confess
Though you never really asked me to
I just figured you were older and know best
And we’ve fought through the hardest falls
When you were throwing knives at me, and I was putting your head through the walls
But now where’d you go, you know she’s getting old
Now where’d you go, everybody wants to know
Now where’d you go I swear to god if we never get the chance to speak again, just remember you’re my Brother, and you’re gonna always be that till the end
Ya I looked up to you I will admit, because you were always strong and smart, and I was always getting into shit
Ya we’ve been through some funny rides, you would point and laugh at me, cause I was getting grounded all the time
But now where’d you go, you know mama,s getting old
Now where’d you go, the whole family wants to know
Now where’d you go, I pray to god someday you lose that pride and speak to her again
Stop being so hard-headed, pick up the phone or you’ll regret it in the end
But now where’d you go, know mama’s getting old
But now where’d you go everybody want to know
Now where’d you go, everybody wants to know
Now where’d you go, I swear to god if we never get the chance to speak again
Just remember you’re my brother, and you’re gonna always be that till the end
Just remember you’re my brother, and I’m gonna hold you to it till I’m dead.
Track Name: Hoax
Preacher, preach us from your book
Sing it loud and clear that the end is near
Teacher, teach us how to be
Through pain and misery, peace and harmony
There’s too much talk not enough action from a fraction of us
What we have here folks, it’s all a joke
And now the hoax is on us all
We build it up and we can take it back down
We’ll break our backs, they’ll watch us fall
They’re piling lie upon lie
Father taught me how to see
He said read everything and then you choose what to believe
A million lines all written down, and it’s all familiar now, lay your heart upon the ground
Track Name: Flags
How long, how long, till we stand up and tear down the lines
How long, how long, can we sit here and turn a blind eye
When will we realize that all these petty lies are killing our time
And how could we have it all when it’s already gone
Would we throw down our flags if all that we knew
Turned out a story contrived and untrue
Would we go off to war or be told what to do
I tell you my friend it’s chosen for you
This time it’s gone, gone on way too long, who’s to decide
What’s right, what’s wrong, kings and bloodlines and thieves in disguise
Who made you ruler here, what you touch disappears and never returns
How could we have it all when it’s already all gone
Would we throw down our flags if all that we knew
Turned out a story contrived and untrue
Would we go off to war or be told what to do
I tell you my friend it’s chosen for you
If I burn all my flags will you then plant the seeds
With your tales of extortion, corruption and greed
We’ll all go off to war, fulfilling their needs
I tell you my friend it’s happening indeed
Try and open your eyes and then maybe you’ll see
That the truth has been buried in hypocrisy
Stay one with your land and live faithfully
As we watch all the bodies get laid out to sea
Do not try and do what has always been done
Sweeping truth love and freedom straight under the rug
It is crucial for mankind to learn from mistakes
And do it quickly before this whole world goes to waste
If I burn all my flags will they then plant the seeds
With their tales of extortion, corruption and greed
Will we go off to war, fulfilling their needs
I tell you my friend, it’s happening indeed
When the cities they burn and the fields they drown
We will curse our forsaken emblems and crowns
When the dust has all settled and the tale has been told
Will we rebuild our countries in a world so cold?
Track Name: Come Down on Me
Long days ahead, just you wait and see
Some are tougher than others, each one’s a mystery
Are you waiting to me
Will you run ahead, really make it quick
Would you hate all the long lost time
You spent regretting this
Oh you can’t fool me darling
Never knew what you wanted
Ya and the page keeps turning
And baby I know you’re hurting
Oh are you waiting for me
Yah I hope you’re not waiting on me
If I could stop away you’ll find
There’s no such thing as the perfect crime
And even if it all comes down
To the longest street in the smallest town
Long days ahead, just you wait and see
Just like the sky on the clearest night
Each star’s a mystery
Oh stay beautiful darling, and just try and keep those stars in
Yah cause the page keeps burning
And inside I know you’re hurting
Oh are you waiting for me
Ya it all comes down on me.
Track Name: The Traveler
On a mission to the great beyond
Sahara heat, she takes her toll
Through the darkness to the other side
The traveler scales his soul
Not knowing where or when but he’ll find her near
And one thing’s for sure he’ll kill them all
Within his lover’s arms he’ll lay his head
And as they stand beside themselves
High up on a mountain
He brings fire to all that he sees
It’s not fortune he seeks
As he strikes down the weak
It’s revenge for the loss of his darling
So deep in debt no simple man can pay
They stripped his baby from his home
Since then the traveler he’s been raging on
Out of control - breaks in the door to find to find his woman
Raped, dead, and naked in a hole
The look in his eyes will leave you paralyzed
And as they stand beside themselves
High up on a mountain
He brings fire to all that he sees
It’s not fortune he seeks
As he strikes down the weak
It’s revenge for the loss of his darling – Love
Track Name: Driver
Like a cold wind she cuts through the air
Engine high and the smell of diesel’s clear
It’s revenge served with a heavy hand
For the one who’s brought chaos to his promised land
Locked inside his own head again
Where no one knows but they fear
He could close his eyes, make them all disappear
Price on his head he hides in fear
He’s got a feeling his time is drawing near
Under the gun he will fall to his knees
Pray for his life and hope that the driver sees
He was locked inside his head again
And no one knows but they fear
He could close his eyes, make them all disappear
Crosshairs down the line
Wind sends shivers down his spine
Ground kicks up under their feet
At last their eyes meet
Track Name: Sad Old Tale
Days keep getting longer now, but I can’t feel the pain
And to sleep’s getting easier, but it still don’t feel the same
And baby you’re to blame
Tried to do the best I could, ya I tried to hold you near
And I know I’ve been gone too long too long to keep you here
Something I’ve always feared
And she said “I know you’ll probably hate me, and I won’t blame you if you do
It’s just things ain’t working out between me and you. You’re a dick to make me want you, and then ignore me like you do. So I’m leaving now before we both get screwed, before we both lose
There’s things that I should’ve said just to make you change your mind
And those things that I should’ve said were the words I couldn’t find at the time.
You made your choices clear and it’s been clear for some time
That you wanted out of here, that you were never mine
And I guess that’s fine
And ya I know you’ll probably hate me and I won’t
Blame you if you do but there’s still some things I gotta say to you.
You’re a bitch to make me want you, cause you know I’m a sinner just like you,
Ya and I know you’re probably angry cause none of what I say is true
It’s just a sad old tale I wrote while I was thinking about you
Track Name: Tally Ho
We don’t know how many are coming tonight
And we don’t know how many are here
We don’t know where they’re from
Or why they have come
Tally Ho, Tally Hum, Tally Hey
We don’t know how many we’re serving tonight
Or how many will come out to play
But we know there’ll be some
Whiskey Colas and sun
Tally Ho, Tally Hum, Tally Hey
Not long to go, out on the road
Not far to go, Tally Ho, Tally Hum, Tally Hey
There’s another big party out on the Greene bus tonight
With some homegrown, cheap wine, dirty deeds
Ronny’s passed out in back
With some sand up his crack
Tally Ho, Tally Hum, Tally Hey
Just one last stretch of road, take our time do it right
Just one last crowd of drunkards to please
Kimmy sings with a lisp
And we’re burnt to a crisp
Tally Ho, Tally Hum, Tally Hey
Not long to go, out on the road
Not far to go, Tally Ho, Tally Hum, Tally Hey
Track Name: Prayer
Giver of life, planter of seeds, why have you not given all what they need and strike them down, the ones filled with greed, ya strike them down.
Giver of hope, provider to man, too many things we don’t all understand, we had a dream, you showed us your plan we had a dream.
Taker of life, destroyer of time, you always take and never satisfied
We’re in a hole, we can’t get out, we’re in a hole.
The board is set up, the pieces in place, load up the barrels and quicken the pace and knock them down. One by one we knock them down
We’re the reason the heavens are coming down
We’re the reason that hell is all around
We just can’t see cause we’re all too busy now
Praying for help
Teller of truth, mirror of deceit, why have you not shown us the ends
And where they meet, and guide us through this age of misery, ya guide us through
The grid is set up, this system’s been fixed
We can light up this free world with the flick of a switch and take it down, we can build it back up ya take it down
We’re the reason the heavens are coming down
We’re the reason that hell is all around
We just can’t see cause we’re all too busy now
Praying for help – praying for hell.
