Track Name: All My Life I Waited
Why do we have to wait, until we get older
To have fun, to be ourselves, to be something better?
Why do we have to wait, to express ourselves the way we ought to

All my life I waited, for you to leave me alone
The best things in life are yet to come

I find myself in, a hole, that I dug myself
Isn’t there someone out there that feels the same as me
Cause I, I don’t feel free

I’m doing what I can, with what, I have in me
But everything I know, is wrong, and it don’t feel right at all

Why do we have to feel like something is missing?
No matter how hard you try you just can’t listen
Why do we have to wait, to express ourselves the way we ought to

All my life I waited, for you to leave me alone
The best things in life are yet to come
Track Name: Machine Undone
Down where the potion lay,
Down by the windy beach today
You knew, you knew
That I would stay committed
To your soul, your life, please admit it

It wasn't where it ought to been
You don't ever give me the time, to talk, to say, to breath

I felt everything renewed, till the spring came, till the morning spring came back down

I felt the earth beneath my skin
I hurt myself deep within
I knew, good lord knows you knew
That I am sensitive
To the words that you play with
In my home

I felt something in my mind, trigger and pop like a machine undone
And everything I knew came into place when the song was sung
I didn't know that everything would be undone
Like a bird
Like a coin
Like the things you said to me
That I can join, that I can breathe you in

But now that the things have changed
They've grown every which way
But they don't know
Which way they ought to grow
When you don't care
When you don't give a damn

Oh but how would I know, that I could, go on with these days oh how I should
Track Name: She Don't Own Me
Doing what I can, with what I have inside
I said I’m doing what I can with what I have inside
Doing what we do, feeling what we say you know

Back then what I couldn’t go nowhere
The light was dim and I felt a strange stare
She don’t own me, She don’t own me, I can do what I want

Don’t you ever get, tired of being in control
Just give it a break
Just give it some time, gal
It will come soon take its toll
But everything I know
Tells me that you got to go

I’m always the middle man, I don’t have a say
One thing goes in one ear then goes on its way
She don’t own me, She don’t own me, I can do what I want

But everything you say, makes me run from you,
You don’t understand what your getting into,
Don’t you know, yeah don’t you know
That I can be your man, farther from the clan, of indentured souls

Working to hard, just to get a little pay
I feel it in my legs, I feel it in my soul now
Someone please brighten my day
But everything I know
Tells me that you got to go
Tells me, Tells me, Tells me
That you got to go
Track Name: Comin' Down Hard To You
I’ve stayed in many days but you don’t know how
I treated you different from the rest of the crowd
I could have been strange, I could have been wrong
But you took me in, you loved me, taught me right from wrong

Could I be a train, coming down hard to you
Could I be something new, to you

Out there in the country were the land meets the sun,
There lies a little girl, she’s lonely, the only one
That knows how, how to make you happy
When your sad and feeling down

Could I be a train, coming down hard to you
Could I be something new, to you

Well I tried my hardest now, to get to you
But your like an egg shell, so hard to break, your heart

Cause I know where I ought to be
Cause I know where I ought to be

Could I be a train, coming down hard to you
Could I be something new, to you
Track Name: Dance With Me Now
Traveling up to battle, I don’t know why
Rifle and knife, I was dressed in white

I was ready to do, anything that I,
Had to do to survive, To live by my rights

Do you hold me back,
I was so tired I wouldn’t regret attack

Do you hold me,
In your minds eye, can you see

Dance with me now, do what you do,
I can’t fight it, its not that hard to let it go now, now, I will follow you

I don’t really mind at all, if you don’t let me go
I don’t really mind at all, if you don’t send my letters home

Cause there will be no one there, if and when they come
Everyone I loved, is gone in a day, gone in a day, gone in a day

Do you hold me,
In your minds eye, can you see

Dance with me now, do what you do,
I can’t fight it, Its not that hard to let it go now, now, I will follow you

I will follow you, I will follow you, I will follow you
Track Name: I Stepped Hard
With the flashing of the lights,
I knew that you would be gone from my life
I knew it, from the start, why can’t you see

That I, I don’t know where to start,
That I, I don’t know where to start,

From the beginning, or the end of my life, of my life, I don’t know

Something in my mind
Doesn't want me to believe in you
But I love you, even more then he does

I walked down the same road as a soldiers way
I don't feel the same

Don't hide anything
Tell me what you want

I stepped hard on the road
When I was born
I stepped hard on the road
When I was born, like a little boy
With his mama, in there house, were there sleepin'
I would never give myself away
Get lost, in the sun, play some cards, have some fun
With the crowd of devils flying in the air, in the sky above

Everything I’ve done, comes undone
Everything I’ve chosen for you isn’t right
I’ve spent most of my best days alone, without you by my side
I’ve tried and I’ve tried to make us a home, but it all fell apart

I will try much harder now, since we now know, what is right with the world today
Track Name: I Feel It Coming On
I’m stuck in a world where
I’m in all the wrong places
All the things that I want to say to you

I get the feeling
There’s no one else out there
No one that could let you down more then me

I feel it coming on
I feel it coming on, today

The anger I can’t swallow down
The pain, it gets to you

I'm sorry but I'm

Doing what we ought to do best
With ourselves, in this town
Find out what comes next
Work it out, hear the sound

Of a million little babies in this town

Sometimes she leave’s you,
Sometimes she don’t
Sometimes she feels like, you won’t
Keep in mind that
It doesn’t mean
That she’s gone forever

I feel it coming on
I feel it coming on, today

The anger I can’t swallow down
The pain, it gets to you

I'm sorry but I'm

Doing what we ought to do best
For our son, he‘s only one
Find out what comes next
Blame yourself, get better now

Come on down to the lair
It’s were we have all the fun
Do you feel the sting of the sword on you now,
Do you feel the wound opening, Oh

Find yourself a matching soul, that will bind to you
When your down, and in a hole, that’s when your lover will do, anything for you
