Track Name: Path of the Enemy
You walked the path of the enemy
To see if you could take them down
You never made it back onto my side
Now you’re just another face in the crowd
I wish my story was a fabrication
And you were making me proud
But you say the blame is all on me
I guess that I’ll never see
Why on earth I would ever try to let me down

-CHORUS:
You walked the path of the enemy
To see if you could take them down
You never made it back onto my side
Now you’re just another face in the crowd
I wish my story was a fabrication
And you were making me proud
But you say the blame is all on me
I guess that I’ll never see
Why on earth I would ever try to let me down-

You’re confidently careless
With the lives that are on the line
But let me tell you ill be dead and gone
Before you ever get your hands on mine
So don’t you bother with your politesse
When you’re over talking next to me
‘Cause when you’re spinning those lies
There burns a fire in my eyes
It’ll cut you down to size and burn you to the third degree

-CHORUS-

You’ve got a heart that was made to look like gold
But that trick only works on fools
Yeah you must have nodded off in the back of the class
When they were teaching those golden rules
And it’s your life yeah I guess your right
You can live it any way that you please
But when the shit hits the fan tomorrow
Don’t come looking for me
When you’re crawling on your hands and your knees
Track Name: Both Feet In
There was a time I’d shoot myself in the foot,
But now it’s understood.
You gave me seven days,
But now we’ve come to eight, and I can’t seem to shake these wicked ways.
The rain-soaked road sucks me in just like your eyes,
Tom and James, they sing me lies and I don’t want to stop,
I just want to drive all night, but my lead eyelids sure put up a fight.

CHORUS:
I’m going down feet-first,
And I haven’t been looking out for you even though I knew that we were all cursed.
What can I say?
I’ve lost touch with my whole mind, but I’m feeling fine because the Reaper comes today.
I had no plan.
I didn’t know what to do when they came for me, so I turned and ran.
And you left me here.
You left me all alone to comprehend the meaning behind all my fears.



I’m feelin’ like I’ve got a gun to my head,
And I know I’m better off dead.
Because, then I’d win….but I’m not the only head you’re in.
So I turn up the volume to drown the pain,
And I’m gone so I follow you down the drain.

CHORUS:
I’m going down feet-first,
And I haven’t been looking out for you even though I knew that we were all cursed.
What can I say?
I’ve lost touch with my whole mind, but I’m feeling fine because the Reaper comes today.
And you left me here.
You left me all alone to comprehend the meaning behind all my fears.
I had no plan.
I didn’t know what to do when they came for me, so I turned and ran.
So far away.
I had to save my legs because I knew I had both feet in the grave.

What can I say? Both feet in the grave.
Track Name: The River Song
For the first time in a hundred years the rain had ceased to fall
I have no idea at all if this is true or just something I’ve been told
But whether the weather was or wasn’t any wetter, I was certain right then it couldn’t get much better
I started walking my way down town with no fear of the cold

The sun shown out so bright that day I head towards the waterway
And the big old crowd was shouting right out loud
This is what the had to say

-CHORUS
Stop I know that the weather may be pretty
But you can swim in the river if you’re south of the city
And the bridge is almost out
You better check it out
If you ever want to get down town-

Well at two decades old with nothing to lose
I rolled up my sleeves and kicked off my shoes
Jumped in the river and swam for the opposite shore
And the current was strong the river was wide
But I’d never sleep knowing I never tried
I could not live my life in fear of what may be in store

As I reached the banks and began to dry
I laughed to myself with a peace of mind
As I caught glimpse of the warning sign with all those things I’ve heard before

-CHORUS-

All too often we are likely to assume
All the things we read and hear have to be true
In the end the only truth lies with you
Which side of the river will you be on
When the crowd comes after you
Track Name: Coming Home
If you can write the rhythm, I can write the rhyme
All that we’ve got to do is find the time
But the time is hard to find and when we do its short and sweet
So we’ll have to write this music as we’re walking down the street

- CHORUS:
and I’m coming home
I’m coming home to you -

I’ve cause my share of tears I’ve felt my share of pain
But I keep driving on through the driving rain
I’ve seen the tallest mountains shadowed by the clouds
I’ve seen the tallest trees fall down when lightning strikes the ground

-CHORUS:
and I’m coming home
Yeah I’m coming home
I’m coming
Yeah I’m coming home to you -

I’ve cause my share of tears I’ve felt my share of pain
But I keep driving on through the driving rain
I’ve said so many things better left unsaid
I’ve heard that many things are better left for dead
Track Name: His True Song
Glass pop bottles and two dollar bills
Faded pictures lying on the window sill
Old love letters and a ticket stub that he should throw away
But he’s got one too many reasons why everything should stay

La – da – da – da

One too many days with his head in the clouds
One too many songs sung for the same old crowd
But he sings true and he sings loud
Eyes set on the stars feet firmly on the ground

- CHORUS:
For he has walked for miles
Through the sun and pouring rain
And when it feels to him like the pavements wearing thin
And every road he walks down looks the same
He just sings… -

La – da – da

An educated American
And a good Samaritan
Jack of several trades but as master he claims none
His simple life don’t ask for much
Because he’s got a lovely lover and he loves her touch
Brick by brick he builds their castle in the sun

- CHORUS:
For he has walked for miles
Through the sun and pouring rain
And when it feels to him like the pavements wearing thin
And every road he walks down looks the same
He just sings…
Track Name: Give the Same for Change
We have all been who we are since the days that we were born
We haven’t ever asked for much but lately we’ve been wanting more
All we’re asking is for a little change
But let the faces and the music stay the same

- CHORUS:
We ain’t got much money in our pockets
But we’ve got a lot to give
And this life ain’t always easy
But it’s the only way to live -

And the people sing… Woah, Woah-oh-oh, Woah-oh-oh-oooh

We have all been who we are since the days that we were born
We haven’t ever asked for much but lately we’ve been wanting more
All we’re asking is for a little change
But let the people and the music stay the same

- CHORUS:
We ain’t got much money in our pockets
But we’ve got a lot to give
And this life ain’t always easy
But it’s the only way to live -

And the people sing… Woah, Woah-oh-oh, Woah-oh-oh-oooh
