Track Name: Second Wind
I GET SO LONELY WHEN I THINK OF YOU
YOU MAKE ME SO DAMN LONELY, YOU GIVE THE DEVIL HIS DUE
SITTIN’ IN THE ALLEY WAY AT THE END OF THIS LONESOME ROAD
WON’T YOU COME AND HANG WITH ME, I DON’T LIKE TO DRINK ALONE

MY HEART WILL BEAT FOR YOU ONLY, UNTIL THE LOVE COMES THROUGH
DON’T PRETEND THAT IT’S MAYBE, PLAYING YOUR PART LIKE YOU DO
FELL OUT OF THE HOTEL WINDOW, THEY SAID I WOULDN’T SURVIVE
WALKED AWAY, KICKED THE CAN DOWN THE STREET
I CAN’T HITCH A RIDE, THEY ALL PASSED ME BY

NOW I’M WAKIN’ UP, FEEL THE EMPTY ROOMS WHEN I COME HOME
NOW I’VE SEEN THE SUNRISE, FEEL THE LOVELY HEAT IT WARMS MY BONES
SEEKING REVELATIONS, BURSTING THROUGH THE CLOUDS I SOAR ABOVE
FINDING INCANTATIONS, BREATHE MY SECOND WIND I’M FEELING STRONG

SO WHEN YOU’RE LOWDOWN AND DESPERATE, YOUR HEART STRINGS ARE BROKE
SENDING YOU THIS MESSAGE, I WANTED YOU TO KNOW
WHEN WE PASS IN THE STREET, JUST WALK ON BY
YOU PRETEND WE NEVER DID MEET, I’LL PRETEND NOT TO CRY
Track Name: Brain Cloud
WE’VE TRAVELED SO FAR, WAITED SO LONG, WE LOOK TO THE SKY, SEARCHING! SEARCHING!
BRAIN CLOUD LAID US LOW, BLUE LIGHTS ON OUR EYES, OUR MINDS WERE MACHINES, THEY’D TORN US APART, WE FORGOT HOW TO DREAM
PLEASE NOW LET IT GO, ORANGE DUST COVERS ME, WATCH HOW CITIES GLOW, THEY FILLED US WITH DREAD AND THEY MADE US DESTROY
FLOWERS DANCE IN OUR BRAINS, THEY’VE CALLED US INSANE, SOFT LOVE BABY BLUE, I’M TUMBLING WITH YOU, ROLL BACK DOWN COUNTRY ROADS
Track Name: Asleep In The Sun
WHAT AM I GONNA DO? FREEZE IN THE COLD, WALK THROUGH DECEMBER WITH YOU
YOU & I WILL BELONG, LIFE’S LOVING PATH, WE’LL BREAK THROUGH THE COLD DARK NIGHT IN BLOOM

YOU CALL THE HORSES ASLEEP IN THE SUN, BEGIN WITH A TROT, THEY GALLOP & RUN, HUMAN HEARTS FLOW ALL OVER THE STONE, BE WITH THE WATER THAT FLOWED LONG AGO
SHE’S BURIED IN A GUNNY SACK, BUT NOT IN OUR EYES, EVEN IF YOU SAY IT’S TRUE
TRYING TO GET MY BABY BACK, LACE UP MY BOOTS, EVEN THE STARS CAN GET LONELY TOO
Track Name: Run For Your Life
DON’T LOOK BACK, THEY’RE RIGHT BEHIND YOU
DON’T LOOK BACK, THEY’LL GET INSIDE YOU
YOU BETTER COVER YOUR TRACKS, THEY’LL CUT AND DIVIDE YOU
DON’T LOOK BACK

YOU BETTER RUN, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

DON’T LOOK BACK, FEEL THE ANGELS INSIDE YOU
DISCOVER THE KNACK, HER DREAMS WILL REMIND YOU
IT’S LIKE YOU DON’T HAVE TO ASK, WE BOTH ARE ARRIVING
DON’T LOOK BACK
Track Name: Carnivorous Flowers
CARNIVOROUS FLOWER (CALVIN S. BENNETT)
CARNIVOROUS FLOWER, CARNIVOROUS FLOWER, TAKE IT INSIDE, NOW WHAT CAN I DO? THIS FLOWER OF MEAT, INSIDE IT’S ALL YOU

FLOWER-O-FLOWER OF MEAT ANNIHILATION! MEAT GRINDER! LOVER OF STEAKS, STRINGY COTTAGE CHEESE!

FEEDING ON FLESH, SEXUALLY DEVOUR, OUR BLOOD WILL MESH, ‘TILL IT’S OVERPOWERING, EATING ON FLESH! PROVOCATIVE FLOWER
Track Name: Dreaming Again
SCREAMING OUT THERE WAS A TIME YOUR LOVE WOULD DANCE OUT IN THE WIND
THEN THERE WERE OCEANS & I WAS DYING, YOU DIDN’T KNOW THERE WAS A WINDOW
SLEEPING HABITS BIT DOWN HARD, ON RESTLESS WINGS ANGELS & DEMONS
SPITTING HEAT, LAUGHING LIES, RECKLESS IDEAS

DREAMING AGAIN, DREAMING AGAIN, ALL OF YOUR LIFE AGAIN
DREAMING AGAIN, DREAMING AGAIN, CAN’T BREAK THROUGH THIS WORLD
ALL OF IT’S GONE, STILL HOLDING ON, LIFE THROUGH YOUR FINGERS

THERE WAS A TIME, NOT LONG AGO WE’D RIDE THE HORSE ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
THEN THERE WERE STARS, THAT NEVER FALL, THEY PROBABLY TURN TO ICE
ALL YOUR LIFE COMES TUMBLING DOWN, ALL OF YOUR FACE CRACKS IN THE LIGHT
BELIEVING IN LOVE MUST HAVE BEEN MORE, FEELING YOUR SOUL
Track Name: Daisy
DAISY, OH MY DARLIN’ DON’T YOU FAIL ME NOW
THE ROAD IS LONG AND DUSTY, I WANN GO HOME
DAISY, OH MY DARLIN’ WE’LL MAKE IT SOMEHOW
THE NIGHT IS DARK AND LONELY, OH PLEASE TAKE ME HOME

RUNNIN’ THROUGH MY MEMORIES & OLD FRIENDS UNDERGROUND
BEEN HAUNTED BY THE ENEMY, DEVIL’S CALL THE OLD HELLHOUND
WAKE UP QUICKLY FROM A DREAM, OUR BLOOD LIKE WATER FLOWS
SHE MEANS SO MUCH TO ME

BLAZING LIKE THE SUNSET, ACROSS THESE HALLOWED GROUNDS
THUNDER TURNS TO LIGHTNING, YOU’LL NEVER MAKE A SOUND
DAISY, OH MY DARLIN’ OUR WHOLE LIVES INTERTWINED
WHILE THE MORNIN’ LIFTS THE DARKNESS TO SHOW THE GRAND DESIGN
Track Name: Keep My Dream Alive
I’M GONNA KEEP MY DREAM ALIVE, I’M GONNA KEEP MY DREAM ALIVE
I’LL DO WHAT IT TAKES TO SURVIVE
I’M GONNA KEEP MY DREAM ALIVE

THEY’LL NEVER KEEP ME DOWN, NO THEY’LL NEVER BREAK ME DOWN
I’LL KEEP RUNNIN’ UNDERGROUND
THEY’LL NEVER KEEP ME DOWN

I’M GONNA PICK MYSELF BACK UP, GONNA PICK MYSELF BACK UP
I’LL REACH FOR THE SKY AND THE STARS ABOVE
I’M GONNA PICK MYSELF BACK UP

MY MUSIC SETS ME FREE, YEAH MY MUSIC SETS ME FREE
I BROKE THOSE CHAINS THAT WERE HOLDING ME
MY MUSIC SETS ME FREE

I FOUND MYSELF TODAY, I FOUND MYSELF TODAY
I KNOW WHERE I’M GOING GET OUT OF MY WAY
I FOUND MYSELF TODAY
Track Name: Raven Hair
RAVEN HAIR (CALVIN S. BENNETT & JOHNNY YOUNG)

FILL ME I’M WARM INSIDE, I’M DROWNING IN YOUR EYES
YOUR FACE CLOSE TO MINE, AFRAID TO SAY THE LINES

LOST IN A FOG, LOST IN A DREAM
SEARCHING FOR LOVE, BETWEEN YOU & ME

STAY A LITTLE WHILE, THE WAY YOU MAKE ME SMILE
CAST A SPELL INTO THE NIGHT, HER RAVEN HAIR IN THE FIRELIGHT

SHOOTING THROUGH THE EVENING SKY, YOUR STAR LIGHTS UP MY LIFE
GAVE MORE THAN I RECEIVED, IT’S EASY WHEN YOU BELIEVE

TRY AND MEND THIS BROKEN HEART, IT’S NOT ALWAYS AN EASY THING TO DO
LET’S APPEAR BEFORE THE MIRROR, JUST ONE LOOK & WE BOTH WILL SEE RIGHT THROUGH

TRY AND MEND THIS BROKEN HEART, THE LIES WE TOLD WERE ONLY VERY FEW
LET’S PRETEND, LET’S START IT OVER, JUST ONE KISS THAT STARTS WITH ME & YOU
Track Name: Human In The End
IT’S A LONG LONG WAY TO REDEMPTION, IT’S A LONG LONG WAY DOWN THERE
IT’S A LONG LONG WAY DID I MENTION
I’LL BE THERE WITH YOU, BE THERE WITH YOU

IT’S A LONG LONG WAY TO HAPPINESS, THOUGH THE STREETS ARE NOT PAVED WITH GOLD
GRAB THE ROPE AND THE WIND WILL CARRY US
LET THE SAILS UNFOLD, SAILS UNFOLD

NOTHING’S EVER FAIR IN THIS LIFE
YOU MAKE SOME MISTAKES, YOU DO SOME THINGS RIGHT
ADD IT ALL UP AT THE END OF THE DAY
I’LL BE SLEEPING EASY IN MY BED

IT’S A LONG LONG WAY TO THAT CITY, HIGH UP ON THE HILL
IF YOU ASK ME FOR SOME COMFORT I PROBABLY WILL, PROBABLY WILL

WELL WE FOUGHT TOO MANY BATTLES, SHOULD HAVE LEFT WELL ENOUGH ALONE
IT TAKES A MAN AND A WOMAN
TO MOVE THE STONE, MOVE THE STONE

IT’S A LONG LONG WAY TO FORGIVENESS, THOUGH WE STUMBLE AGAIN AND AGAIN
PASS AROUND SOME LOVE TO ONE ANOTHER
WE’RE HUMAN IN THE END, HUMAN IN THE END
