Track Name: Memo 1
You’ve got that murder poison
And I got the kiss
Lipstick cobra potion - I got this
Oh - Let me count the stars
Six Hundred and two
Fire dancing devil ladies
I got this

I read the words in between the lines
What does it say?
I know everything about everyone at any time
I don't know who I am

You’ve got that murder shovel
And I got the pick
Lipstick cobra potion - I got this
Oh - Let me count the stars
Six Hundred and two
Fire dancing devil ladies
I got this
Track Name: For A Friend
Sing a verse for Travis rest in peace my friend
Another loss, another soul has found its end
Sleep for ever and now you wake no more
The needle did you in it tore your life apart
I see your face when I’m asleep it hurts my heart
Sleep forever and now you wake no more

Now I know you’re gone
I miss the times we shared
No way to bring you back it is the end

Sing a verse for Matt rest in peace my friend
Another loss another soul has found its end
Sleep forever and now you wake no more
The needle did you in it tore your life apart
Sometimes I can make you out playing your guitar

Now I know you’re gone
I miss the times we shared
No way to bring you back it is the end

And now that time has passed you know I’m feeling free
I know there’s no going back cuz now i feel relieved and now I feel relief
I think of all the good memories and go on with my life
And when the time comes to save another soul
I’ll know the word to say because I’ve been here once before
I’ve loved and lost you’ve paid the cost

next time I’ll save my friend
Time ran out you’re gone
We will all move on
For those who’ve had their time cut short
We miss you all our friends
Track Name: Working Man
Wake up today go to work
Get our pay we ain’t the jerks
We work hard don’t mess around
You and I run this town

Wake up today go to work
Get our pay we ain’t the jerks
We work hard don’t mess around
Tim and I, we run this town

Working man stand up proud

Wake up today go to work
Get our pay we ain’t the jerks
We work hard don’t mess around
You and I run this town

Wake up today go to work
Get our pay we ain’t the jerks
We work hard don’t mess around
Tim and I, we run this town

We are the city we are it’s veins
We are the heart, man - you cannot tame
We are united - don’t push us around
We built this city we can tear it down
Track Name: SOS
I can remember a time when we were all free
From the things that we do to ourselves
I have a vague recollection of a playground
Swinging under a tree
I don’t remember sense of responsibility
I don’t remember feeling insecurity
But those memories are all so fuzzy
faded away through time
I can remember the song a truck played as it drove down the streets of my neighborhood
Passing out stick of frozen happiness
Melting in the sun
Don’t remember thinking of problems
Happening so far in the east over oil
Or oppression of women by people killing for religious views

And I don’t know what I’m to do
Go to work and get by just like you
My head is filled with corporate mess
Guess I turned out like all the rest

Maybe there is still hope for us
Just gotta get off this bus
Take a stand take our thoughts back
Tear the system down
Don’t know how or even if it’s possible
Gotta pay my bills and be responsible
Maybe someday I’ll seize the opportunity
Grab it by the hand
So for now
Do what I have to
Go to work act just like you
My head is filled with corporate mess
I’m sending out my s.o.s.
Track Name: Sweet Sincere
It's the moment just like this I that wish would never end
Drifting further out to the sea, what will we find
Oh those bright colored flashes in they sky reflect through your eyes
Oh that sound of the waves as they crash, sooth any soul

Sweet sincere
Have you ever been afraid to dance alone
Sweet sincere
Have you ever been afraid to wake alone
Not tonight...

Oh there are so many things that I failed to recognize
And an angel lost her wings as she fell in to my arms
And my feet they hurt so much from dancing in the sand
Take my hand and we'll take drive to a place without a name

Sweet sincere
Have you ever been afraid to dance alone
Sweet sincere
Have you ever been afraid to wake alone
Not tonight...

It's the moments just like this that I'll cherish stright till the end
Burn this candle at both end and we'll ask, when will it end...

Sweet sincere
Have you ever been afraid to dance alone
Sweet sincere
Have you ever been afraid to wake alone
Not tonight...
Track Name: Give Up Chorus
To another song for the heart broke
We wash our plans away and burn more bridges
To a summer left out in the cold
Drop back kicked down
We were jet pack future

Here’s a story about a girl
looking for all the answers in the burnt book of south Phoenix
Here’s a story about a guy
asking all the wrong questions Screaming 400 miles away

Sound drives high
We lost connection
Sound drives far
We’re tangled up on all these wires
Who gives a damn about desires

What’s wrong? Couldn’t take the pressure?
Asking all the questions, no fall back
How Long, did you ever wonder
till you found the answers you were looking for.

Just run away We’ll throw our hands up Just give up We’ll give up We’ll throw everything away
Track Name: What Yoda Said
Let go
You walk around your day job
You joke around fake day show
You’re workin’ for something you’re paying for
You talk about what you’re runnin’ from

You tell me what you wanted to see
Your eyes are open wake up and be

You know you’re not the victim
You know the life you came from
You worked for what you’re work’n for It’s time to quit your day job

Let go Do or do not
There is no try
Track Name: Miners RIP
Another 29 dead and a CEO at fault
Blood on his hands and black in his heart
He bragged that he drove the unions out
7 million bucks he could tout
Another story where the working man lost
Where does it end What is the cost
A country with a shrinking working middle class
We all fade how will we last?

This one goes out to those dead at the hands of another man’s greed
This one goes out to the widows and their kids and their families

11 more dead at an oil rig at sea
Safety overlooked more dollars for BP
The CEO stated it’s not that bad
Corrupted government and bad policy
Our majestic ocean is filled with black
The creatures of the sea are under attack
Greed has murdered men and creatures alike
it’s time for us to stand up and fight

This one goes out to those dead at the hands of another man’s greed
This one goes out to the widows and their kids and their families
Track Name: Pleasure Meeting You
Oh you’re so hard congratulations
You flaunt your shit your pretty girl

Let’s go
I’m ready
I am the sun
Let’s go
Your bullshit
Your time is done

I am the getaway
I am the excuse now
I am your “picture perfect”

This shit is mental masturbation
You dick for brains I fucked your girl

It was a pleasure meeting you
Our time is through
I walk away leaving a shell of what was you
