Track Name: Get Right With God
I'm on a lost highway and it leads to hell
I don't need directions I can find it myself
Yeah I've lost my path yeah I've gone astray
The devil wouldn't have it any other way
Too run down like the faded sun
Strapped to a cross like the chosen one
Feel the thunder I'm a lightnin' rod
Better get right with god
Breaking vows at the speed of light
Too tired to lie too tired to fight
Ma said son you better change your ways
The devil's gonna lead you to an early grave
Too far gone well I'm out of reach
Should have practiced what they preach
Feel the thunder I'm a lightnin' rod
Better get right with god
I'm on a lost highway and it leads to hell
I don't need directions I can find it myself
I've lost my path yes I've gone astray
The devil wouldn't have it any other way
Too burned out like the faded sun
Strapped to a cross like the chosen one
Feel the thunder I'm a lightnin' rod
Better get right with god
Feel the thunder I'm a lightnin' rod
Better get right with god
Feel the thunder I'm a lightnin' rod
Better get right with god
Track Name: Love Sick
Pain and pleasure coincide with broken hearts that always lie
We embrace the joy we feel, It’s glorious
Don’t expect sincerity, when all we have is killing me
We embrace the pain we feel, It’s glorious
Don’t say you’re love sick
Don’t say you didn’t know the risks
You’ve been stung by love before, so it seems you’re wanting more
You embrace the joy you feel, it’s glorious
Don’t believe in fairy tales, never seems to work out well
We embrace the joy we feel, it’s glorious
So unexpectedly, you’re filled with pain and grief
So undoubtedly it hurts like hell beyond belief
Track Name: Catch My Fall
That which I fear most has come to pass
And every lie you've ever told, won't be your last
You took away my hope
When it was all I had
Please help me cope
I'm feeling bad
Catch my fall
I've had a broken heart since the day we met
Although I'm torn apart, I know you're not done yet
Take me in your arms and tell me I'm alright
We talk of closure but we know it's a lie
Track Name: Blue Then Grey
When you look at me, what do you see
Bad reflection of yourself, or maybe someone else
Presentation beyond compare, so very rare
Still the nightfall lets you down when it comes around
It's blue all day, then grey
When you gaze into my eyes, can you see the lies
I'm an actor on the stage, come and see the play
Promote the joy and feign a smile, just for a little while
I'm a sinner not a saint, although I used to be
It's blue all day, then grey
It's blue all day, then grey
I can't be a rock
I can't take it
I can't be a rock
I won't fake it
My will is gone
Like the sunshine
The thrill is gone
Now I'm flatlined
All the clouds have gone away
And now it's blue to stay
It's blue all day, then grey
It's blue all day, then grey
It's blue all day, then grey
It's blue all day, then grey
All the clouds have gone away
And now it's blue to stay ...
Track Name: Scar
I'm at home anywhere
Cause I'll never be anywhere I can call home
I do belong to you
but I'm a Catholic mistake and I'm not meant to be
Like today, I'm thrown away
I search for the words but there's nothing to say
Love is a lie and it never will
Fill in the hole in my soul
That never heals
I'm reared by the dead but the debt is forgiven
And I'll never be anything for them to be proud
I was scorned from the day I was was born
Now I'm ashamed that I ever was
Like today, I'm thrown away
I search for the words but there's nothing to say
Love is a lie and it never will
Fill the hole in my soul
That never heals
It never heals
Like today, I'm thrown away
I search for the words but there's nothing to say
Love is a lie and it never will
Fill the hole in my soul
That never heals
It never heals
Track Name: Grey Sky Savior
To look in your eyes, I’m a million miles away from this place
Too many goodbyes, have left a bitter aftertaste
I’ve given you my all, but my all’s in default and never enough
I would kill for you, I would die for you, I’d do anything that you want me to
I’ve given you my all, but my all’s in default and never enough
It was never, never enough
Your loves like a razor, so sharp it could cut
Grey Sky Savior, where are you now?
Been searching for your love, but it can’t be found
Never learned how to love, so show me how
Your smile lights the room, that was dim and dark and full of hatred
To smell your perfume, will intoxicate and leave me breathless
Always left too soon, where have you gone, feeling helpless
I fall to me knees, to help you please, open my eyes help me see
Always left too soon, where have you gone, feeling helpless
Track Name: Anything, Anymore
Too early Sunday morning the new dawn makes me blind
I'm riding back from nowhere the wretched place I left behind
I've never needed you so badly can anything kill the pain
I never knew what I had now tears fall like the Autumn rain
Doesn't anyone give a shit about anyone
All I had is gone and I can care less
about anyone or anything anymore
I'm just another hit closer to her but I'm still so far away
Everyday is just one big blur I've left yet here I stay
Some folks might call it suicide but I call it another night
There's nowhere left for me to hide but two wrongs don't make it right
Doesn't anyone give a shit about anyone
All I had is gone and I can care less
about anyone or anything anymore
Don't crack the empty shell
Protect me now that I'm so frail
There's no spark left in me
I can't say that I believe
In anything .... anymore
Track Name: I'll Fade Away
When the darkness falls on you don't be afraid
Don't give in don't give up because we all make mistakes
Everything that you ever wanted is taken away
Nothing I do makes any sense so I'll call it a day
I'll fade away
I'll fade away
When you're singing to yourself there's no one to hear
My intentions are defined but they still seem unclear
Seems like my faulty wires have led me astray
Nothing I ever do makes any sense so I'll call it a day
Can't you see that I'm disappearing now
Please believe that I'll make it up someday
I'll just fade away
Track Name: Welcome To The Graveyard
Welcome to the graveyard, It’s the place that I call home
Is living worse than dying, It’s all I’ve ever known
Is happiness a shot away, It’s here and then it’s gone
Living in the graveyard, the lights are on but no one’s home
Well I’ve got one foot in heaven and another one in the grave
Rotting here most every day with the memories I’ve made
It’s all so very temporary, all spent with nothing saved
Well I’ve got one foot in heaven and another one in the grave
From the pawnshop to the barroom, another fork in the road
It’s all so very cemetery, Nothing here but lonesome souls
Every day there’s lovely scenery, but every night it all erodes
From the pawnshop to the barroom, another day that I let go
Track Name: Lifeline
And when the time comes, she’ll be waiting, for me
With my eyes closed, I’ll be able, to see
Don’t you think that I’ve had enough, for one lifetime
Where the hell am I supposed to find, another lifeline
And she waits for me there, wherever that is
And I’ll find you I swear, but for the moment
I’ll be waiting here …..
And when the time comes, she’ll be praying, for me
With her convictions I’ll be able, to be
Well I think that she had enough, in her lifetime
Now I know I can never find, another lifeline
But what God takes he’ll someday return it, I know
And I just can’t see how to learn it, my lord
Will I hear when the trumpets are blowing, next time
Will you whisper let’s get going, time to fly
Track Name: But This Ain't Love
You …. You got it all wrong, you can’t be happy
When I am blue, I want you badly (so very badly)
So won’t you help me, help me pretend that I belong to you
But this ain’t love, this ain’t love
This ain’t love, But this ain’t love
You… you were my sunshine, my only sunshine
You made me happy, when skies were grey
You’ll never know dear, how much I loved you
But you took my sunshine away
Track Name: Road Grey
I woke up this morning to the sound of breakin' up and breakin' down
I'm falling apart me and my broken heart
I gave up a long time ago and I just thought that you should know
I can't pay the resnt I can't phone it in
So you think you can love me
Well I'd like to see you try it
So you think you can love me
Well I'd like to see you try it
I feel the fun is slowing down I feel reality coming round
I can't afford to think better down another drink
I'll come home when I'm too alone too hard to break when I'm made of stone
I'll turn away from you like the devil told me to
So you think you can love me
Well I'd like to see you try it
So you think you can love me
Well I'd like to see you try it
I'm here today but I'm wearing road grey
I'm going nowhere so any road will take me there
A to the wise let a sleeping dog lie
'Cause I've got nothing left so I've got nothing left to lose
So you think you can love me
Well I'd like to see you try it
So you think you can love me
Well I'd like to see you try it
