The stunning new album by Heaven & Earth that critics have been calling the best rock album in the last 10 years.

Spirits are halfway between God and man.  They are envoys and interpreters that ply between Heaven and Earth,  flying upward with our worship… and defending with heavenly answer… they merge both sides into one great whole… ~Plato

Track Listing

Victorious
It’s electric, in the air
Two warriors, locked in a stare
Another battle, to begin
Mano-y-mano, lose or win
Oooh, burning eyes hold no fear
Yeah the moments here
Oh, there’ll be a champion
Standing tall for all to see
On their way to be victorious
All for glory

Anxious weapons, set to strike
Bone and muscle, no wrong, no right
Only one here shall remain
Defending the title, as long as he can reign
Oh, Oooh the love of battle born to fight
Sacrifice has earned the rite
Oh, there’ll be a champion
Cheering masses fuel the games
Oh, no absolution
All for glory
Who will be victorious?

Not for money, not for love
Who’s fist is raised high above?
Relentless hearts, battle for pride
Victorious or die trying
Oh, there’ll be a champion
Standing tall for all to see
Oh, no absolution
All for glory
Who will be the winner in this,
Show of those who, live victorious?
Oh, Victorious!

No Money, No Love
She’s stimulating on the eyes
And those looks don’t compromise
She’s avaricious, so delicious
And what she craves is no surprise
Cause if you ain’t got the means, the cars or the cash
You’re just dreaming mister

No money, no love
No money, no love
It’s what her world is made of
No money, no love

A fancy house and chic clothes.
She wants her pockets full of gold
You buy her diamonds; she’ll be your girl
She’ll trade you loving for the world
Will all of her needs be taken care of?
She wants the paper baby

No money, no love
No money, no love
It’s what her world is made of
No money, no love

At the end of the day she’s still alone
No heart full of gold when the hearts made of stone
She works that dress, but she’s still a mess

Well it’s all that she wants, all she thinks of
She wants the stars above
No money, no love
No money, no love
It’s what her world is made of
No money, no love

No money, no love.
No money, no love
It’s what her world is made of
No money, no love

I Don't Know What Love Is
In your voice from the beginning
The future crystal clear
Just to hear you say my name
Was music to my ears
Springtime for lovers
Tomorrow’s today

Bringing out the best in me
Trust and believe
I’d hurry home to see your face
To my arms, you would run to me
So sweet, so wonderful
Storybook romance

I used to believe in forever
I thought I knew what it was
It used to be so easy
I just don’t know what love is anymore

Somewhere we gave up and just let go
Too stubborn to change
Where did our hearts go?
Our lives rearranged
I’m frozen in the past

I used to believe in forever
I thought I knew what it was
It used to be so easy
I just don’t know what love is anymore

Your tears were my tears
We laughed just the same
Made love in one flesh
Sharing breath, heartbeats in time

I used to believe in forever
I thought I knew what it was
It used to be so easy
Now I just don’t know what love is anymore
I don’t know.

Man & Machine
Look at that beauty just waitin’ for me
Got the sweetest curves that I’ve ever seen. So nice!
Turning her on, Ooo what a noise
I’m ready to fly with my beautiful toy

Man and machine
Man and machine

I got it made
The sun in my face
Drivin my Ferrari down PCH
Fire and steel thrusts me back in the seat
Adrenalin rush
You know it’s much too much

Man and machine
Man and machine

Listen, It’s an evolution
A natural fusion
Body & soul with mechanical
Science fiction a sweet affliction
Flying desire makes me feel alive
Hey I can’t explain it, just got to feel it
Riding on a dream

A beautiful face
Not a brick out of place
Shoots me like a rocket into outer space
I got it made
She takes me away, Oh yes!

Man and machine
Man and Machine
Man and Machine
Man… and Machine

House of Blues
If you want to fly, you can soar But the higher that you climb, the farther you can fall Hiding underground, safe alone But the hole inside your in, is getting very cold

No words can ever help you change your mind To be in love can end up so unkind Maybe take a chance and end up in romance Or stay inside your lonely House of Blues

If you wanna let go, let the door swing wide Remember how it feels to have your heart revived Like sitting in the sun, safe and warm Having someone there can make you feel alive

No one can ever help you change your mind To be in love, can end up so unkind Maybe take a chance and end up in romance Or stay inside your lonely House of Blues

There’s a sea of hearts, drifting all about Shipwrecks in the night, sinking out of sight You can see outside, but all you see is rain You should go outside, but you’re afraid You’re afraid, of pain

All I can do is give myself to you Today is all we have, just leave the past All you need to do is try, not let it pass you by

You see that there is nothing left to lose So get out of that lonely House of Blues Get out! Don’t be lonely! Get out of that lonely, House of Blues

Back in Anger
I’m mad at the papers selecting the news
Picking the crisis that best fits their views
I’m mad about money, a maniacal twirl
Innocence dying to pay for this world

Young men are dying in our streets
A war on ourselves, we need a retreat
A bullet’s no remedy for inter-social maladies
Oh no, a senseless, calamitous, reality
Somebody help us!

The rape of the earth, the fauna can’t win
And the glorious wars through all of earths spinning
Conquering lands in the name of the cross
Embarrassing history, the natives have lost

Business controls and never a crime
Earth’s being sold, one piece at a time
The people, the trees, the air, the seas
Our future green, Oh does anyone see?

Every time I seem to regress
How can we all get out of this mess?
Anger from tears and then to fears
Where do we go?
Does anybody know?

Every time I seem to regress
How can we all get out of this mess?
Anger from tears and then to fears
Where do we go?
Where do we go?
I just don’t know!

Waiting for The End of The World
Well the Moonage was born in the Calendar Round
Celestial truth to unfold
And we sailed to the edge
Tomorrow’s come yesterday
Hopeful star show me the way

Is this the end of our age?
How will we ever know?
How will we ever know?
Standing alone at the edge

Lift of the Veil
We’ll see if love prevails
Time’s run away
Waiting for the End of the World

Here we stand at the lonely horizons end
Reborn from the truth in our hearts
My fears fall away
Love light’s there in its place
And the star that’s raised us in grace

Every love that we made
Every love we gave
Every love we gave
Every song that we sang

Lift of the Veil
We’ll see if love prevails
Is this the end of an age?
Time’s run away
Waiting for the End of the World

Together no more
Will love ever find us again?
Today’s not forever
A new sun is born
A new light shines the way

Lift of the Veil
We’ll see if love prevails
Time’s run away
Waiting for the End of the World

Lift of the Veil
It’s only the end of an age
Time’s standing still
Waiting for the End of the World!

Sexual Insanity
Inside my head, there’s an itching I can’t ignore
It starts as whisper, a restless cry, for more

Then on my shoulder; a little devil
Controlling, takes a hold of me

Deep seeded need, predacious like a hound
Focused on you, the smell, the feel, the sound

Like a possession, taken me over
A love drive inside controlling me
Shameless lust, I can’t get enough
Surrender to me… Oh oh oh oh

Primal, crazy, sexual insanity
Passion raging lust

We’ll take the night, Captive consuming elation
We’ll be on our way, slowly groooooving

Body’s all rested ch-ch-changing
Could it be the moon that’s taken over me?
Can’t turn it off. It’s playing with my mind
Un-cages me. Oh oh oh oh

Primal, crazy, sexual insanity
Passion raging lust
Raging, Ooo Mama
Un-cage me!

Untame me
Shameless lust, I can’t get enough
Surrender to me. Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Ahhhhh

Primal, crazy, sexual insanity
Passion raging lust
Primal, crazy, sexual insanity
Passion raging lust

Rock & Roll Does
When you feel like something’s missin
And your soul needs a little fix
Just a little bit unsteady
Gotta get back in the mix

I was lost when I was younger
Just trying to find my way
Looking for direction, that never came

When no one seems to understand
Then like a message from above
Rock and Roll Does
Rock and Roll Does

I was feelin’ down, misunderstood
No one seemed to care
I switched on my radio… rock was there

When you need something to hang on to
Yeah something that is real
Yeah it’s always there for you
I know just the way you feel
Rock and Roll will

Who’s always there to lend a hand?
Who’s always there to understand?
Who lifts you up when you are low?
You know it’s gonna sooth your soul…….Hey!

Ooo… When I’m feeling lonely
Lookin for a friend
Rock is always there, through thick and thin

When you need something to hang on to
Yeah something that is real
You know it’s always there to save you
And like a message from above…

Rock and Roll Does
Rock and Roll can
Rock and Roll will
Rock and Roll knows
Rock and Roll does
Rock and Roll does
It’s the cure baby
Somebody help me
I need a shot ot ot ot ot ot… of ROCK AND ROLL!

A Day Like Today
On a day like today we could walk in the fields
No one would blame us for dreaming the day away
Go back in time, there white horses would lead
Now when the grass is green

On a night like tonight gonna play you an old song
Warm by the fire while I serenade you
Don’t have to say all the words that we feel
On a night like tonight

Lost in yearning for only you
Was it a dream when we danced ‘neath the morning moon
Time stood still for a lifetime
I’ll wait for the day when we feel that again
Will you take me back when…

Was a day like today we could stroll in the park
Lost in our eyes we’re still gone after dark
Nothing could change the way that I feel
Not on a day like today

On a morning like this when you rise like the sun
It all seems so clear how our life has begun
Yesterday’s gone there it stays we live on
And we don’t have to say the word

Time stood still for a lifetime
I’ll wait for the day when we feel that again
Will you take me back when…

Was a day like today we could stroll in the park
Lost in our eyes we’re still gone after dark
Nothing could change the way that I feel
Not on a day like today

Lost in yearning for only you
Was it a dream when we danced ‘neath the morning moon
Time stood still for a lifetime
I’ll wait for the day when we feel that again
Will you take me back when
All I can feel in my heart that is real

Was a day like today we could stroll in the park
Lost in our eyes we’re still gone after dark
Nothing could change the way that I feel
Not on a day like today

Not on a day like today
Not on a day… like today

Good Times
Come on, come on, come on and let’s go We’re about to get down Get up, get up, get up and let’s roll
Let’s rock this crazy town I know the way to get there
We’ll loose our ever lovin’ mind
Get in, roll out, light up and lets fly
Make a forever time
Got to escape to a rhythmical world
Be where the magic is real
I wanna dance right under the sky
Beneath a shinning moon Down to the edge, the oceans not far
Where the ladies sway and swoon Move into them, them into you
Your body’s synchronized Louder and louder we’re in a trance
Oooh hypnotized Got to escape to a musical world
Be where the magic is real

Yes, these will be the Good Times
Yes, No better state of mind, Good Times
Afro, Cubano, Latin and Jazz
They all speak the same Just like a heart, the rhythm beats free
Connecting you and me Move into them, them into you
Feel the rhythmic beat Louder and louder, we’re in a trance
Till the night and morning meet

Got to escape to a rhythmical world
Be where the magic is real

Yes, these will be the Good Times
Yeah, these will be the Good Times
Ohhh

Come on, come on, come on and let’s go
We’re about to get down Get up, get up, get up and let’s roll
Gonna rock this crazy town I know, the way to get there
We’ll loose our ever lovin mind Get in, roll out, light up and lets fly
Make a forever time

Yes, these will be the Good Times Yeah, No better state of mine Yes, these will be the Good Times Yeah, these will be the Good Times
Oh…

Live as One
Why must we go on fighting?
Why can’t we choose to love?
Learn it from our children, before they learn from us

As we live this play, ooh the actors believe what they say
In a cast of millions of people, I heard someone say

Why can’t we… Live as One?
Our lives have just begun
Live as one
You and I, a new day… has begun

Oh, lookin’ for a brand new day

Living on the edge
Oooo we need a moment’s peace
And I’ll shout it out to the world
Down on my knees
Down on my knees

Live as One
Our lives have just begun
Live as one
You and I, a new day
You and I, a brand new day… has begun

Money buys us power
But does not buy us love
The most precious gift is priceless
Within it comes from

Live as One
Our lives have just begun
Live as One
You and I, a new day has begun

Track Listing

Don't Keep Me Waiting
As a child he sees the mountain
and hopes that someday he will climb
As the same she sees the dancer
and trusts in the dreams she will find
As we reach into tomorrow
we all need to find something new
Could it be I’ve found the answer
cause I know now that I’m ready
What I want is you
(Chorus)
Don’t keep me waiting, hanging on the line
Keep me waiting, Oh yeh

And I know what you are thinking
If only I could take the time to choose
You’d better get it right, cause it’s time to see the light
And the minutes keep on passing, Hey you don’t want to lose
(Chorus)
Don’t keep me waiting, hanging on the line
Keep me waiting, don’t waste my precious time
Don’t keep me waiting, the devil needs his due
Keep me waiting, Oh no, no no no

(Bridge)
And all the hopes and dreams of the past
That are haunting my heart, held in my hand
And all lives keep on passing
Over and over and over again

(Solo)

Ain’t no matter now what you say, gonna keep on up anyway
keep me waiting, hanging on the line
Keep me waiting, don’t waste my precious time

Heaven & Earth
The first time I saw you, the stars stood still in the sky.
If only for one moment, I saw, a future in love.
Babe, I just can’t forget you,
when you smile, all my cares fade to grey
It’s crystal clear in this moment, I know,
I’ll always be there for you girl
Passion is burning, Oh our love is showing.

And I’ll move heaven and earth to be by your side
Let the stars stand still and the worlds collide
If you love me forever for all that I’m worth
Baby I’ll move heaven and earth.

Babe, now that I found you
I see all I’ve been missing in life
You bring the world to my door tonight
I’ll love you forever, cause I know
Passion is burning, your love is showing.

And I’ll move heaven and earth to be by your side
Let the stars stand still and the worlds collide
If you love me forever for all that I’m worth
Baby I’ll move heaven and earth.

We could be risking our hearts baby
To be forever as one
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Our love will live on and on.

(Guitar solo)

We could be risking our hearts baby
To be forever as one
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Our love will live on and on.

And I’ll move heaven and earth to be by your side
Let the stars stand still and the worlds collide
If you love me forever for all that I’m worth
Baby I’ll move heaven and earth.

I’ll move heaven and earth to be by your side
Let the stars stand still and the worlds collide
If you love me forever for all that I’m worth
Baby I’ll move heaven and earth.
Baby I’ll move heaven and earth.
Ohhhh I’ll move heaven & Earth.

See That My Grave Is Kept Clean
1.
Good Lord I know
There’s one favour I ask of you
I got one kind favour to ask of you
there’s one more thing before I go
won’t you see that my grave is kept clean.

2.
It’s a long long lane that ain’t gonna end
It’s a long long lane that ain’t got no end
Here comes that train, it ain’t no friend
I gotta get on board, take me there

3.
Have you ever heard a coffin sound
Have you ever heard a coffin sound
And I think it’s time to take me down
You know the poor boys in the ground

(Bridge)
Dig my grave with a silver spade
I want you all to listen
you may place four diamonds on my grave

(Solo)

5.
Have you ever heard a death bell toll
Have you ever heard a dead bell toll
then you know the poor boys dead and gone
then you know the poor boys dead and gone
Ooo – dead and gone

When A Blind Man Cries
If you’re leaving, close the door
I’m not expecting people anymore
Hear me grieving, lying on the floor
Whether I’m drunk or dead I really ain’t too sure

I’m a blind man, I’m a blind man
And my world is pale
When a blind man cries, lord you know
There ain’t a sadder tale

(Guitar solo)

Had me a friend once, in a room
I had a good time but it ended much too soon
In a cold month in that room
I found a reason for the things we had to do

I’m a blind man, I’m a blind man
Now my room is cold
When a blind man cries, lord you know
He feels it from his soul

(Guitar solo)

Lord I’m in a darkness baby.

I’m a blind man, I’m a blind man
Now my world is cold, so cold
When a blind man cries, lord you know
He feels it from his soul

Life On The Line
Somebody give me the solution
Who’s got the secret, turn water into wine
You know I need some absolution
Some sanctuary or I’m gonna lose my mind
Well the mean streets show no mercy
No salvation, can’t find no hiding place
Oh they’re out to do you down and dirty
Hell of a situation, there is no saving grace

(Chorus)
Don’t try to tell me that eveythings fine
In the eyes of the world, you ain’t worth a dime
Feel like a prisoner doing my time
Wearing a badge with my life on the line

(Bridge)
Oh I fall down on my knees and pray
Heaven help us find a way
We’re way past the warning signs
This ain’t no way to live with my life on the line

(Solo)

2.
The world just keeps on getting colder
I could use some shelter, so hard to find these days
I’m always looking over my shoulder
A world of trouble is never far away

(Chorus)
Don’t try to tell me that eveythings fine
In the eyes of the world, you ain’t worth a dime
Feel like a prisoner doing my time
Living day to day with my life on the line

Dreams of Desire

Still Got The Blues
Used to be so easy, to give my heart away,
But I’ve found out the hard way,
There’s a price you have to pay.
I’ve found that love was no friend of mine.
But I should have know time after time.

So long, it was so long ago
But I’ve still got the blues for you.

Used to be so easy, to fall in love again
But I found out the hard way,
It’s a road that leads to pain.
I’ve found that love, love was more than just a game
You play it to win but you lose just the same.

So long, it was so long ago
But I’ve still got the blues for you.

So many years since I’ve seen your face
But here in my heart there’s an empty space
Where you used to be

So long, it was so long ago
But I’ve still got the blues for you.
Now the days come and go
Ahh but there’s on thing I know,
I’ve still got the blues for you.

Do You Ever Think Of Me
You dream in days of future past?
Who said I told you?
Do you believe that love will last?
Who’s there to hold you?
There was a time not long ago,
Girl you used to be mine.
Is it a crime I can’t let you go?
Cause being without you,
Inside I’m dying.
(Chorus)
Tell me when you’re in someone else’s arms,
Do you ever think of me?
Tell me when you lay down and close your eyes,
What do you see? Do you ever think of me?
2.
So many nights I call your name,
But you’ll never hear it.
Try to forget, but it’s all in vain,
Loneliness, I feel it.
There’s no escaping just what it true,
No matter how I try.
There’s just no getting Baby, over you.
I could say that it’s over,
But you know I’m a liar.
(Chorus)
Tell me when you’re in someone else’s arms,
Do you ever think of me?
Tell me when you lay down and close your eyes,
What do you see? Do you ever think of me?
(Bridge)
Miles away or worlds apart,
I can’t stop the way I feel in my heart, Oh no no
(Solo)
(Chorus Out)

It's Got To Be Love
You’re driving me crazy
You’re gonna drive me to drink
You spin me around til my head’s in the kitchen sink
Well I don’t know why I want you
Sometimes I don’t think I care at all, oh no
Oh, you make me wanna tease and taunt you
But I still come running when you call

(Chorus)
Baby let’s face it,
You know it’s a shame
Don’t know what we got
But I know it’s insane
I push and pull you
It all comes to shove
You know I hate you so much,
it’s gotta be love.

They say fire and ice makes a hell of a mix
If opposites attract, it’s a hell of a dirty trick
I’m always getting on your nerves
And I can’t stand those little things you do, oh no
No matter how many times you and I always try to call it quits
You know I always wind up right here with you

I know love ain’t ever easy
Sometimes you gotta take it on the chin
Living in a cold war, walking out the front door
I just can’t get you out from under my skin

Shadow of the Tyburn Tree
My love’s been taken away from me
Bound in chains by the kings decree
A child of god accused of witchery
Imprisoned by their lies

The winds of fear are blowing strong
They’ll take her life even though they’re wrong
As the sun will rise at the break of dawn
On the gallows she will die

Oh how cruel the hands of fate

Oh heaven stop this grave mistake
And grant this wish that I shall make
Instead of her, my life they take
Salvation lies too far

So beyond this world our hearts will twine
Even stronger still, yours and mine
Love immortal for all time
Written in the stars

Oh how cruel the hands of fate

By the moonlight I wait for eternity
And pray that my love is returned to me
There’s no man with a heavier heart than me
In the shadow of the Tyburn tree

Oh magic moon, won’t you stay and hold back the sun
For my love and I, on a moonbeam will fly
And the morning never comes
And the morning never comes

By the moonlight I wait for eternity
And pray that my love is returned to me
There’s no man with a heavier heart than me
In the shadow of the Tyburn tree
By the moonlight I wait for eternity
With a hopeful heart and a desperate plea
And a prayer that my love will be set free
From the shadow of the Tyburn tree
From the shadow of the Tyburn tree

Road to Melnibone

When the Blues Catch Up With You
(Solo) Stuart
1. You’re moving way too fast
One day you’ll pay for what you do
You’re moving way too fast
One day you’ll pay for what you do.
I might not be around
When the blues catch up with you

2. You’re headed for a fall
Unless you find some middle ground
You’re headed for a fall
Unless you find some middle ground
If you want me to stay babe
You’d better slow your motor down

(Solo) Howard/Al

3. Do you have to get so low
Just to get another thrill
Do you have to get so low
Just to get another thrill
I ain’t the fool you think I am Babe
I’ve almost had my fill

(Solo) Stuart/Howard/Al

Howlin' At the Moon
1. Your love is so frightening, in a flash of lightning
When you change your direction,
then you break our connection

(Chorus)
I know there’s another man, who comes around midnight
You got me howling at the moon
Howling at the moon
Like a scrap fed dog, left out in the cold
You got me howling, howling at the moon

2. I got scars from you biting. It’s a love cruel, cruel fighting
When you throw me out the door,
I’m always scratching for more

(Chorus)
I know there’s another man, who comes around midnight
You got me howling at the moon
Howling at the moon
Like a scrap fed dog, left out in the cold
You got me howling, howling at the moon

(Bridge)
My blood is pumping, Lord, straight to my head
Moonlight through your window
Babe a stranger in my bed
You got me howling at the moon

(Solo)

I know, I know there’s another man, who comes around midnight
You got me howling at the moon. Howling at the moon
Like a scrap fed dog, left out in the cold
You got me howling at the moon. Howling at the moon
You got me howling at the moon

Memories
1.
You always said we had the perfect love
You ran away when the going got tough
It’s not your first time it won’t be your last
Shattered hearts you’ve left in the past
Nothing I can say nothing I can do
Never makes a difference to you
Can’t forget the feeling of your touch
Deep in my heart it hurts too much

(chorus)
Now your memory is all I have
for the love that was good and now has gone bad
Memories have taken hold and I can’t let go.

2.
You’ve got us living on the border line
You’re in your world and baby I’m in mine
Deep inside I think I always knew
My heart was asking, “could this be true?”
Now all my tears are falling like rain
We’re back to being strangers again
Promised to love me, said you’d be true
I was a fool to believe in you

(chorus)
Now your memory is all I have
for the love that was good and now has gone bad
Memories have taken hold and you know I can’t let go.
Now your memory is all I have
Still a ghost in my mind of what we once had
Memories have taken hold and I can’t let go.

(Bridge)
Tell me, it’s not a hopeless situation
Tell me, we’re gonna make it through the storm
Now all my tears are falling just like rain
We’re back to being strangers again
I can’t forget the feeling of your touch
Deep in my heart it hurts too much

(Solo)

Oh your love, your love is haunting me
(chorus)
Now your memory is all I have
for the love that was good and now has gone bad
Memories have taken hold and you know I can’t let go.
Now your memory is all I have
Still a ghost in my mind of what we once had
Memories have taken hold and I can’t let go.

Trouble In Paradise
Politcians telling us that things will change
The more I see the news, you know it stays the same
People still at war, people out in the street
The players get the shade and we got the heat
The American dream that never came true
I’ve had enough now how about you

You better run, don’t think twice
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Well I don’t know if we can get out alive
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise

Oh preachers and teachers tell us not to forget
Religions gonna save you but it ain’t done it yet
Try out this new view, a guru, a fix
You’re not gonna fool me with the same old tricks
The American dream that never came true
I’ve had enough now how about you

You better run, don’t think twice
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Well I don’t know if we can get out alive
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Oh oh you better run, don’t think twice
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Well I don’t know if we can make it alive
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise

I’m just trying to stay alive
Keep it simple cut and dried
Maybe next year or tomorrow, It will all be gone
Hope they prove me wrong

You better run, don’t think twice
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Well I don’t know if we can get out alive
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Oh you better run, don’t think twice
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
I don’t know if we can make it alive
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise
Don’t think twice,
Get back, hold on for your life
Looks like we’ve got trouble in paradise

Lose My Number
1.
Another night up late again
Can’t remember where it all began
Dancing till dawn in your high heeled shoes
you gotta pay the piper for to get your dues
We’re at the end of the show
Well it’s time to pack your bags and go
You’re never gonna get it, I don’t wanna hear it
Don’t turn around as you close the door

(Chorus)
Lose my number, forget my name
You’re walking down that road of misery and shame
Lose my number, forget my name
Push it to the limit don’t you understand
You got a one way ticket out of hand

2.
Hey, goin up but you’re downtown
The lines you’re wearing are hand me down
Second hand dealer gonna see you through
To fix your broken down love voodoo
But your light is shining low
there’s a shadow in your glow
I don’t wanna feel it or ever be near it
The clock’s still ticking girl, so why you still here

(Chorus)
Lose my number, forget my name
You’re walking down that road of misery and shame
Lose my number, forget my name
Push it to the limit don’t you understand
You got a one way ticket out of hand

Track Listing

Screaming for Redemption
Every night I lie in bed
Hear your voice running through my head
Just can’t get you out of my mind
I tell my friends, they say it takes time
But time is something I don’t have
I need you Baby, I need you bad
You’re the stranger I used to know
But in your heart the cold wind blows

Hear my heart, crying out for mercy
See my soul, washed up on the shore
Feel my love Babe
Screaming for redemption
Screaming for redemption

Everyday it gets a little longer
In every way I get a little stronger
Memories of now and before
I still see you walking out that door
Now you’re the stranger I used to know
But in your heart the cold wind blows

Hear my heart, crying out for mercy
See my soul, washed up on the shore
Feel my love Babe
Screaming for redemption
Screaming for redemption
Screaming for redemption
Screaming for redemption

I done wrong by you, you done wrong by me
We tore ourselves to pieces just to try to try and break free
Now that we’re apart, I’m reaching for your heart
Can’t I make you understand, I’m screaming for redemption

Heaven
I felt in black and white before color came in to my life
I watched day fold into night without a struggle some kind of a fight
Lonely’s just a word I’ve heard
But its an avalanche of pain
When everything is said and done
The feelings still remain
CHORUS
I saw a field of stars in your eyes, Just like Heaven
You touch me my senses come alive, I know it’s Heaven
The past I can’t erase
The futures in your face
It’s all Heaven, Heaven

I was crushed by a memory, Haunted by a war of words
Silence divides itself , Killing everything I’ve heard
All it takes is one right turn
On the, edge of lessons never learned
And my sanity will tomorrow be
a fire on the wind to burn
CHORUS
Cause I see a field of stars in your eyes, Its all Heaven
You touch me my senses come alive. I know it’s Heaven
The past I can’t erase.
The futures in your face
It’s all Heaven
BRIDGE
I don’t understand the ways of the world
I don’t pretend to know whats real anymore
I swear
I saw a field of stars in your eyes, Just like Heaven
You touch me my senses come alive, I know it’s Heaven

Nasty Piece of Work
Hitler, Mussolini, Ho-Chi-Minh,
Saddam Hussein and Idi Amin.
Napoleon, Khruschev, Castro, Lenin,
Vlad the Impaler and Joseph Stalin.
Quathafi and the Ayatollah, Gengis Khan too,
Osama Bin Laden and the whole damn crew.
Put them all together, make an evil brew,
And their cold black hearts won’t compare to you.

You sing like an angel
You’re a nasty piece of work

Manson, Jack the Ripper, Kahzindsky,
Joseph Mengele and John Wayne Gacy.
Dahmer, Ramirez, Teddy Bundy,
Lizzie Borden and Machine Gun Kelly.
Hannibal the Cannibal and Buffalo Bill,
The Son of Sam, to name a few.
The wicked, the striken, it’s time to get a clue,
That their cold black hearts can’t compare to you.

You sing like an angel
You’re a nasty piece of work
You sing like an angel
But you’re the devil’s curse
You sing like an angel
You’re a nasty piece of work
You sing like an angel
But you’re the devil’s curse
Put them all together, make an evil brew,
And their cold black hearts won’t compare to you.

It'd Be True
Gray skies, blue skies, Sunset, sunrise
Heart starts to realize more than just a friend
Visions in my eyes, So hard to disguise
More and more each day with you
Harder to pretend
If only you could see inside my heart
The emptiness I feel when we’re apart

(Chorus)
I don’t want to say, that I care for you
But it’d be true
I don’t want to tell you, how I really feel inside
I don’t want to say that I love you
But oooooh ooooh it’d be true

(Verse 2)
The world it turns from night to day
Thoughts of you still find a way
To wake me from my restless dreams
To wonder where you are
Are you alone tonight?
Or dancing neath the pale moonlight?
Do you even realize, The feelings that I hide?

(Pre-chorus)
If only you could see inside my heart
The emptiness I feel when we’re apart

(Chorus 2)
I don’t want to say, that I care for you
But it’d be true
I don’t want to tell you, how I really feel inside
I don’t want to say that I love you
But oooooh ooooh it’d be true

(Bridge)
I’m not trying to possess the life you’re living
Or steal the wind beneath your brand new wings
I’m just trying to keep alive
The dream that might have died
But I can’t forget you. And Ohh I never will. No, no. no. no

Track Listing

Dogs of War
Dig up the hatchet and take to the field
Follow the madman, leave nothing concealed
Morning breaks on a new black dawn
Only to find, you’ve fallen for the con
Fields of orphans, fields of shame
Missiles screaming in to steal their loved ones slowly
In the name of right or wrong
They burn their families down
All for religion, God is lonely

They’re gonna pay
The world is on fire
Damn those Dogs of War
The planet’s on fire

Fields of ruin, fields of despair
A bitter sight in memory’s stare
Mountains rising of the slain
Forever twisting the knife of blame
Murder the kingdom for the glory of the crown
A river of blood moving oh so slowly
In the name of right or wrong
They watch their country bleed
God damn religion, God’s still lonely

They’d better pay
The world is on fire
Damn those Dogs of War
The planet’s on fire

Worlds Apart
Your promises echo as lightning crosses the sky
Your tears fall like water across the great divide
Your words they whisper to me
Your touch still thunders through me
The sun will surely rise
As dreams worship the night
Your memory burns so bright

There may be oceans between us
But we live under the same sky
There may be mountains that touch the stars
But there is nothing that love can’t climb
You’re still in my heart
Even though we’re worlds apart

The distance between us is nothing more than time
You speak the language that only love can provide
My heart it cries for mercy
Waiting for the time we’ll be
Together once again
Time will have no end
Feeling like we’re at the start

There may be oceans between us
But we live under the same sky
There may be mountains that touch the stars
But there is nothing that love can’t climb
You’re still in my heart
Even though we’re worlds apart

When you close your eyes you know I’m there
Can you hear me
And feel me there

(Solo)

Your words they whisper to me
My heart, it cries for mercy

If Only Love
It’s cold in the night
The streets are so lonely
I’m staying here cause there’s nobody home
And where you are
I’d hate to be thinking
I need to tell you but you’re so far away
And I know it’s coming down
When hearts start to beat
You run from the sound
I don’t understand your reasons for leaving
It’s never over when there’s so much to say
I could see through the veil in your eyes

If only love could save us tonight
The earth would shake
And dark would be light
Mortals would fly
And angels would walk
Dreams would part the heavens above
If only love

Baby it’s lonely tonight cause your gone
I’m burning with questions all night past the dawn
You’re in that place again where I surely reach you
Where I can hear the silent scream in your heart
Where our love is standing alone
Lost in the shadows and trapped in the cold
Where the wall of emotions built up to the sky
Can never clear when there was no
When there was no real goodbye

If only love could save us tonight
The earth would shake from morning ’till night
And there I would fly and angels would walk
Dreams would part the heavens above
If only love

When I think of all the times I cried for you
All I did is making me feel like a fool

I could see through the veil and your ice blue eyes

If only love could save us tonight
The earth would shake and dark would be light
Mortals would fly and angels would walk
Raining down from heavens above
If only love could save us tonight
If only love could turn around
All the heat we had that turned into Ice
Tell me why it’s never enough
If only love

Jade
Bound and determined
It was no easy chase
I had to roll you
You made a big mistake
When you said no, no, no
With that hungry smile on your face
Oh, don’t talk while you’re scheming lady
That’s not so lady like
Said come a little closer
Just above my bended knees
The cats are howling in the night
When you find it found your territory
My little Asian lady got the Kung Fu grip on my soul
Time to finish what you started
You’re not so innocent

Jade you’re a teaser
A mystical healer
No more moderation it’s gone away
Dancing to the candle light
Morning turned to noon tonight
Don’t need no invitation
Know it’s alright

We turned the neon down
And cranked the music so loud
we broke the mirrors off of the ceiling
Next thing I won’t forget
Is when she light me up her cigarette
Said she didn’t need no rest
I said no, no, no
But it was just what I was hoping for

Jade you’re a teaser
A mystical feeler
No more moderation it’s gone away
Dancing in the candle light
Morning came from noon tonight
You never need no invitation
No it’s alright

Chorus

Broken Arrow
Old wagon wheel keeps on rolling
Out of control, out of time
Tried to stop the rain
Fire dance
Took my chances but I’m still in pain

Take me down to the river where I can wash it all away
to an ancient land where the red man rides
Where I can hear their spirits say

We offered peace and we’re still waiting
For the day that’s never come
Our horses ride in hope of daylight
For the sleeping to awaken
Mother Earth is begging please
Weeping for release

Take me down to the ocean
Wanna set my spirit free
Lord I know there’s gotta be a better way
Won’t you help me find it deep inside of me
Cause I was borne in a white man’s world
And for that I need my soul some peace
It’s been a long long lonely road
And there I’ve found what I don’t need
I’m gonna leave when I hear the drums a calling
And I need you to believe
Not much longer will we have to wait
Can you hear me
Hear me
There can be no use in fighting

We offer peace and we’re still waiting
For that day will surely come
Our horses ride in search of daylight
Sleeping will awaken
And the lost out from the cold
Resting in our homes and in our land we call our own

Where have you gone
We’re still waiting out here
Yeah we’re crying
What have you done with our river’s and trees
They’re all dying
We’re waiting for the day to overcome

We offered peace and we’re still waiting
For the day that’s never come
Our horses ride in hope of daylight
Sleeping will awaken
Mother Earth is begging please
Weeping for release
Weeping for release
Our horses ride in search of daylight
For that day will surely come
Oh yeah.. Oh oh

Prisoner
I hold you in my sleep
But the nights are getting colder
You’re there only in my dreams
Won’t you come back

Why do you treat me like a prisoner
In this lonely heart I’ve been sinking
Feeling like a prisoner
Only your love will set me free
I’m feeling like a prisoner
This emptiness won’t let me be
Won’t you set my heart free

What more can I do
To prove my love for you
We spent most of our lives together
I need you

But you treat me like a prisoner
In this lonely home I’ve been sinking for way too long
It’s time I’m moving, moving on
I’m feeling like a prisoner
Is it you or is it me that I’m missing

I can only pray
That someday
I will feel for you
Like before
When our light was so strong
We could do no wrong
Before we let it take you away

Away from Harm
Fortune teller read me clearly in your future stars
A hundred years have come and gone
I’d like to carry on
Hearing your voice reminds me of those places we would ride
Through the planes and distant shores
A time when you were mine

All along I knew that the time would come
All the lives have passed and the wars are won
By your love I’m haunted and need your grace
By morning

On winds we’ll ride and see no end is coming
We’ll ride tonight on roads of gold
Out in the fields we’re open space
No yearning
Like before when none was sold

Set me free into the dawn we’re music
We’ll ride the lightning in the storm
Out of the world that seems forever falling
I’ll keep you safe
Away from harm

A way from harm
A way from harm

Set me free into the dawn we’re music

Through Your Eyes
We’ve been sleeping far too long
Hiding from the shadows that divide us
Somewhere the dream has all gone wrong
Afraid to know the fear that walks beside us
It’s time to face what’s been tearing us apart
Time to face the darkness in our hearts
I’m waiting

If I could see the world through your eyes
Would my heart be so cold
From all the lies I’ve been sold
Maybe if I saw the world through your eyes
Love wouldn’t go astray
We wouldn’t need to turn away

So hard to know where to start
To open up our souls to one another
Why do we tear ourselves apart
Every time it rains we run for cover
A hunger for the future brings a yearning to my soul
A crying deep inside
I just can’t hold

If I could see the world through your eyes
Would the pain and trail of tears
Fade away and disappear
Maybe if I saw the world through your eyes
We’d find another way
To love again someday

In from the dark into the light
From all the pain and all the strife
I knew it all would end
Please let it be tonight
Hold on

The information highway, can we make it pay?
Doesn’t really matter, Bill owns it all anyway.

So now they’ve got your information
Weep or laugh the truth is shown
Over the seas in every nation

Hey, what’s your profile, bi, straight or gay?
Download some music, play it out loud
MP3, Napster, should it even be allowed?
Keyword to love, searching for a friend.
Somebody please tell me, where’s it’s ever gonna end?
Will I get online? You might be out of luck.
Gotta switch to Earthlink cause AOL sucks.

Politician
I see it in your face
On every cover every space
How you feel we’re so blind
Yeah why you’re in the office ain’t about all of us
You’re just a show
You’ll probably win the race
But you’re not listening to the people
They’re crying
Your position’s not political
Celebrity skin is not so hard to read
I’m looking through you

Tell me tell me Politician
Tell me where’s your honesty
Politician, Politician
Tell me where’s your sanity

Somebody’s watching and it ain’t one of us
Better watch over your shoulder
What your selling ain’t for free
Yeah it’s the price of your head that’s gonna roll
Read it in the papers
See the television screen
You think you’re such a star
People dying in the streets
Are you listening to them?
You sit and watch them bleed
I’m talking to ya

Tell me tell me Politician
Tell me where’s you’re honesty
Politician, Politician
Tell me where’s your sanity
Politician
Have you no integrity
Politician, Politician
Where is your sincerity

So I’m writing a letter of hope tonight once again
For the ones who believe you’ve broken down our defense
What’s it gonna take for you to listen to the innocent
Who’s world is spent
On the poison and guns you deliver in their yard
You’ve taken more than they can pay

Organ solo, Guitar Solo,

Years Gone By

Gone By Morning
It was 1589
In Sherborne Castle
Berry Wine
Good fashion
Raleigh laid his cloak out for the Queen
Became Walter Raleigh Sir
Fav of Queen Liz the first
Till that marriage to her maid
How Beth was raged

And so Sir Walter lived in dread
Of the Queen who did see red
That girl you should have never wed
The final warning
Lizzy turned around and said
Take my maiden from your bed
Or it’ll be off with your head
Gone By Morning

Now he jumped aboard a ship
To take his long and final trip
To find another British isle to save his neck
When upon his return
Accused of plotting would become
Bound into the Tower till no more hour

And there Sir Walter lived in dread
Of that queen who did see red
That girl you should have never wed
No more warnings
Bessie’s round and underfed
Take my maiden from your bed
Or it’ll be off with your head
Gone By Morning

1589 in Sherborne Castle
Berry Wine
Good fashion
Raleigh laid his life down for that queen

And there Sir Walter lived and dregged
Of that queen who did he beg
That girl you shoulda never wed
No more warning
Lizzy turned around and said
Shoulda taken that maiden from your bed
Now it’s off with your head
Gone By Morning

Wrote this letter to his wife
Sorry dear they want my life
Before I’ve known the axe or knife
Here’s all I’m asking
Remember everything I’ve said
Could not pry you from my bed
Now you can carry round my head
‘Till your last mourning
Gone By Morning

I Don't Need No Doctor
I don’t need no doctor, cause I know what’s ailing me
I don’t need no doctor, cause I know what’s ailing me, Yes I do
All I need is my Baby, you know, you know, I’m in misery

I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor

I don’t need no doctor, my perscription tells me that
I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor, my perscription tells me that
I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor
All I need is my Baby, Oh, I’m keeling over here
I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor

Well, the doctor said I need rest,
put me on the critical list,
To keep me safe from my harm
All I need is her charm
He gave me a medicated lotion, it wouldn’t do
Ohh yeah wouldn’t do.

I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor
I don’t need no doctor
