Track Name: About Woman Blues
I'm coming home and feeling stronger
Than before, when I went away

I'll walk that road a few miles longer
Before they send me away

Little darlin' I came to your door
With lovin' on my mind
I came back for you once more
So darlin' won't you be so kind
So kind

I got the blues and they're getting darker
Since you sent me away

I got the chills and they're getting colder
Without you' each night I lay

Little darlin' I came to your door
With lovin' on my mind
But I won't be coming back here no more
'Cause you treated me so unkind
So unkind

I got the blues and they're getting darker
Since you sent me away
Track Name: Relapse
Hollow feelings are bouncing through my head
As I wake from this silent night in my bed
A night filled with such grief and cold
'Cause you're not there to hold
To hold

All my mistakes I've got to know
All to well they come visit when I miss you low
I can't stand the thought of another man
The bastards out there want your hand
They want your hand

Give me a sign or set me free
I said that to you and you just looked at me
Then you said you didn't love me
So now I've set you free
I set you free

I wish we had flown together
But wishing is an empty tether
And longing fills the gaps
Now you and I will never relapse
Never relapse
Track Name: In Want Of Love
Her eyes' were like a thousand smiles to me
Like the moonshine on the sea
But now it's changed
Her lips' would kiss me to a faraway land
Her love led me by the hand
Then time changed our love
But love changed our time

So love is our song, the melody has been set
And love can't be wrong if we both wanted it

To have her, I felt my soul would be complete
Out of the rain and off the street
But I was wrong
To love her, I thought would be enough for life
That for always she would be my wife
Then time changed our love
But love changed our time

So love is our song, the melody has been set
And love can't be wrong if we both wanted it

To loose her, is something I wish I could change
But I've only got myself to blame
Now our lives won't ever be the same
Then time changed our love
But love changed our time

So love is our song, the melody has been set
And love can't be wrong if we both wanted it
Track Name: Fairy Tales
I hear the light and taste the sound
Feels like something creeping up behind
Like something that's imaginary
I can't believe what's happening inside

Cause I dig you and you dig me too
I dig you, dig me too

Your hair it sprinkles fairy dust
And your eyes they cast a magic spell
Laying down beside you babe
I can't think of any place I'd rather dwell

Cause I love you, and you love me too
I love you, love me too

Well, it's been a while since I bought the ring
And it seems as though it's broken your spell
If it ain't that baby maybe I
Just didn't now you all too well

Cause I bug you, and you bug me too
I bug you, bug me too

So let us go our separate ways
Sacrifice the shame, learn from the pain
Fairytales we now condemn
When all we really wanted was the same

Cause I dug you and you dug me too
I dug you, dug me too
Track Name: Small Steps
Throwing stones in the glasshouse of my mind, my mind
Crossing oceans, walking sand for miles and miles
Taking small steps
Taking small steps

It's good to be back at home again
It's good to be back at home again

Bound to deal with this condition that I face, I face
Walking through this town of disgrace, disgrace
Taking small steps
Taking small steps

It's good to be back at home again
It's good to be back at home again

It's good to be back home, again
I never liked these streets, these places without you

It's good to be back at home again
It's good to be back at home again
Track Name: Home
I felt the cold, I felt the rain
It’s good to be back at home, again
My heart got wet, in the storm
It’s good to be back at home, in the warm

You’re all clear
While I wait here
Here I am
Here I am
Back at home

It rains for a while, before the sunshines
That rainbow says hope is mine
What we feel, comes and goes
There’s one thing for sure, in this life we grow old

You’re all clear
While I wait here
Here I am
Here I am
Back at home

Mind this bird, flying out of control
He lost his nest and has no where to go
Have you lost your way, your way back home?
Then just look deep to where the seed was sown

You’re all clear
While I wait here
Here I am
Here I am
Back at home
Track Name: Oak
Hand me down my walking cain
While the light is on my way
Listen to what I have to say

In younger days I was a fool
It was easy to be a fool
Listen to me don’t be a fool

I’m on your side to tell you
The way I was is not the way you should be
I’m on your side to tell you
The way I am is not the way you want to be

You want my ear, you want my heart
All to show me life off to a good start

You want my soul, you want my mind
All to help me in the days when I’m old

So you’re on my side to tell me
The way I am is not the way I should be
If you’re on my side then tell me
How the hell I don’t end up like you

Unlike a man the oak stands tall
Only in the roughest storm the oldest will fall
Track Name: Faith
Holding down, the echoes in my mind
Watching them, slowly dance and twist through time
Down to where I see them
Down to where I see them

I'm putting faith, in all the things that you have said
I'm hoping, this is the right path to tread

I'm falling, falling through my bed at night
I'm calling, I call to you and it’s all right
Doesn't matter when.
Doesn't matter when?

Obstacles, before us every single day
Our success, depends on how we guide the way
Careful how we spend.
Careful how we spend?

I'm putting faith, in all the things that you have said
I'm hoping, this is the right path to tread

I'm falling, falling through my bed at night
I'm calling, I call to you and it’s alright
Doesn't matter when.
Doesn't matter when?

Down to where I see them
Down to where I see them
Track Name: Chains
In my mind compulsion
When I can’t find it

Side by side revolver
But you can’t fire it
You can hold it
But you can’t keep it

By no fun, at all

Night by night I come between the walls
That keep us
Where we are until the time it falls
When they need us

In my head confusion
And I can’t bear it
Line by Line I fall deeper
And I can’t bear it
I don’t choose it
But I want it

By no fun, at all

Day by day we look back in the mirror, to discover
It can’t pull us
From the chains that bind our minds as a prisoner
And hold us
Back
Track Name: Falsely Accused
I had it in my pocket
Before they took it away
We have to make them stop it
Or else in prison we’ll lay

So, come you desolate men
And bring the aimless man too
Our freedoms have been abused
Now stand to free the falsely accused

The streets are patrolled for nothing less than gold
From the side of the pauper they take out his liver
To satisfy a cheat’s greed his shoes are sold
Every alley is dark and provides no less than a shiver

Kindhearted assistance doesn't linger in existence
The lights look nice n dandy ‘til you taste they're evil candy
Each generation’s innocence is losing its resistance
If it don't stop on this hour a harder rain is going to shower

So, come you desolate men
And bring the aimless man too
Our freedoms have been abused
Now stand to free the falsely accused

Let’s keep it in our pocket
Don't let them take it away
We can make them stop it
Be sure in prison they lay

So, come you desolate men
And bring the aimless man too
Our freedoms have been abused
Now stand to free the falsely accused
Track Name: Bottom Line
It’s the bottom line
For you right now
You had your chance
And you let me down

You hide us away
From the first day
When you said, we could stay
We could stay
Didn’t you

It’s the bottom line
You’ve got no truth
Now you stand-alone
Without any proof

You hide it away
From the first day
When you said it would stay
It would stay
Didn’t you

Some people dance in the rain
Some people can’t stand the shame
Now you don’t want to be
In my company

You hide me away
From the last day
When I begged can’t I stay
Can’t I stay
Didn’t I

It’s the bottom line
And an empty house
Now you live alone
Haunted by your doubts

You hide them away
From the last day
When you said they can’t stay
They can’t stay
Didn’t you
Track Name: Ballad Of Dechlan
High on a branch in the apple tree
The higher you get the more you see
Deep in the ocean the fish swims free
The deeper you get the more you need

Here we go again
We will never win
Here we go again
We will never win

Hiding from the blossom that comes in spring
Tending to the obstacles your conscience brings
Running to uncertainty with blinkers on
While this precious heart needs attention

Here we go again
We will never win
Here we go again
We will never win

High on a branch in the apple tree
Track Name: Man Of Goodwill
So the time has come
For me to write you a song
For all of the memories
You gave me since I was young

You showed me a man
Of strength and loyalty
You showed me the man
That I hope some day I'll be

You always had time to help others
You always had time to give of yourself
Your door was wide open, there was always a bed
If your brother was hungry you gave him food of your shelf

Your a man of good will and you're always in my memory
Your a man of good will and you're always in my memory

You got back from war
Behind enemy lines
To live on the land
That your uncle had inclined

But July fifty three
McCarthy shot you viciously
Then left you on the ground to die
But then you got up
And got in your truck
You gathered your family and drove five mile

You're a man of great strength and inspire me forever
You're a man of great strength and inspire me forever

So the time has come
For the end of your song
But the love I have for you will go on & on
Track Name: Percussion Honey
Since we never met
I don't hold a regret
of you
isn't it obvious

Eclipsed by circumstance
Your face is in demand
by you
Its pure illuminance

Percussion honey show your beats to me
Percussion honey show your beats to me

The tragic breath we bear
Is in a state of slow repair
Its no insurance

Forgot by our friend time
Swept up in clouds of rhyme
To rain down
Sound Precipitance

Percussion honey show your beats to me
Percussion honey show your beats to me

A distant echo sounds
There with my hope is found
in you
For my deliverance

Percussion honey show your beats to me
Percussion honey show your beats to me
Track Name: Wind Don't Cry
Down by the river
Caught in a shiver
I sat there and waited for you

Seemed like forever
But better than never
Or else there would be regret too

But the wind ain’t the rain
And it don’t feel pain
So by the wind your soul will fly
By the wind your soul will fly high
By the wind your soul will fly by

With your cheap dance and winks
You kept filling my drinks
So I left you a tip to be kind

But why ever did I trust ya
You’re nothing but a hustler
Now I’m caught here a fool and so blind

But the wind ain’t the rain
And it don’t feel pain
So by the wind your soul will fly
By the wind your soul will fly high
By the wind your soul will fly by

Down by the river
Caught in a shiver
I sat there and waited for you

Seemed like forever
But better than never
Or else there would be regret too
Track Name: This Time
Familiar feelings are my uninvited guest
They hit me from behind and put a pain inside my chest
They grab me with two hands to choke me while I rest

This time I didn't call to you
I didn't call this time
This time

Twisted tension climbing up inside my head
Building blocks that fall like dreams upon my bed
Thrown into the sea chained to a brick of lead

This time I couldn't run to you
I couldn't run this time
This time

Walking through the woods and kicking up the leaves
A shifting moonlight dance on ground beneath the trees
Avoiding obstacles, my only chance to seize

This time I didn't fall for you
I didn't fall this time
This time

In the darkness our eyes meet then look away
Diamonds cut the mist my heart to lead astray
This is it now I must stand or lose my way

This time I didn't fall for you
I didn't fall this time
This time
Track Name: The Flood
Silence spoke
In shades of red
As my mind woke
By words unsaid

Don’t say it
Because then it is here

Kindness choked
In pools of blood
My soul broke
Drowned in the flood

Don’t say it
Because then it is here

This spirit flies beyond
Through the vaulted dreams
Thrown into the pit of black
Spewed into volcanic streams
Left to burn on the stack

The coldest water didn’t come
This spirit flies beyond you now
