01. Right Up Ahead

Angel wore a green bar for a living
Sleeping in the sand every-night
Cindy's holding protests
But it ain't no use to blame
Both sides feel the pain tonight
Hold yourself real tight
Deny...
Votes are down, now fight!

The ground bleeds fire, hope they're watching my back
Eyes burning green and my muscles eat glass
Kiss my frag, hope it sets me free
As I pray to the sky

Breakdown the door with a one legged huh!
Graduate now you've worn your gun in
Now you're one...
Best be prayin' to the sky

You're dancing out your head, a free fall....

You see your angel flying
Your heart is dying
You never saw it coming
Might be right up ahead

Chasing a shadow that's moving through ash
You hold her in your mind as your way to get back home
And she prays to the sky

While the frozen shock lights the back of your face
Only seen the sun for a hundred and two days
Hits you right between the eyes

You're dancing out your head, a free fall...

You see your angel flying
Your heart is dying
Will you see it coming?
Might be right up ahead

How many ways can you hold on
If you know I believe in you?

The ground bleeds fire and your eyes burn green
But you gotta believe that we're all born free
Not just left to do or die

You're dancing out your head, a free fall…

You see your angel flying
Your heart is dying
Will you see it coming?
Might be right up ahead


02. Blue Suede Shoes

(dedication to our troops)

I am the son who believed in the call
Standing beside you I witness it all
Walk hand in hand through cities of clay
Far from the ocean so far from the ocean

You wonder why
Don't you know someone you'd die for?

Put on my blue suede shoes all for you...

I'm not a trophy you hang on your wall
Levy illusion rob Peter pay Paul
I brave the distance I take the fall
Of extreme words unspoken with deeper devotion

Free to decide
Salute the lives laid down before me

Put on my blue suede shoes ah...
Red, white and blue suede shoes all for you...

One look around
Won't you see someone you live for?

Put on my blue suede shoes ah...
Red, white and blue suede shoes all for you...


03. Four Leaf Clover

Dear Jane
Am I going down in flames
While you're playin' me like a game
And I'm this far from home?

Good Luck
Turned up your pretty face
Sent my heart into outer space
Am I out here alone?

I might be off
But it feels like its all gone wrong
You're not alone
And when I call
You're not at home
But you know that I'm still wishing
I'll be out back digging for a four leaf clover

You say
Everything here's ok
Don't worry while you're away
I'll be your reason why

They say
I'm just a paranoid
Pushing Prozac and quoting Freud
But there's no cure for goodbye

There's a word
On the top of my head now it's gone
Or was it love?
Cause when I call
You're not at home
But you know that I'm still wishing
I'll be out back digging for a four leaf clover

Tell me I'm wrong
I'm hanging on
But you're not at home
Don't you know that I'm still wishing?
I'll be out back digging for a four leaf clover

Dear Jane
Can you hear what I have to say?
Are you leaving or will you stay
Or lying to keep me alive?

Is your Jody sneaking in your back door?
Is your Jody sneaking out your back door?


04. M16

Charlie Foxtrot
This one's a long shot
My one way out is melting in my hands
Nearly the bitter end
Out in one piece again

March through this dream
With my M16

Mind's busting seams
Grip my M16

Thoughts are reeling
People screaming
No chance I'll ever be the same again
Blindfold the freaks in my head
All they can see is red

March through this dream
With my M16
Mind's busting seams
Grip my M16
Human machine
Spreading democracy with my M16

Charlie Foxtrot
This one's a long shot
My one way out is melting in my hands
Nearly the bitter end
Out in one piece again

March through this dream
With my M16
Mind's busting seams
Grip my M16
American dream
Flowing through my magazine
Like blood of human machine
To spread democracy
You see we come in peace


05. Your Great Escape

You stopped believing
Left your will behind
It's getting late
Good luck is hard to find
Might take a supernova
To blast your way out of the grind

The voice in your head is screaming...
what you already know


This is it
Your great escape
Are you in or out?
Live on your vision
It's all you got
When it's said and done
You owe no-one
What ya waiting for?

You've heard it all before
From A to Z
Everyone telling you
What you should be
Might take a hurricane
To blow your mind and set you free

Don't need to look far to see it... what you already know

Here it is
Your Great Escape
Are you in or out?
Live on your vision
It's all you got
When it's said and done
You owe no-one
When your numbers up
You got to take your one best shot


06. Disappear

You parted the red sea
And woke this in me
Unveiled a world deep in my need
Your essence calling
Can't keep from falling
Into your world
I will come crawling

Out of the light
Into the night
Two worlds ignite

Gone in the sweet abyss
I will cease to exist
disappear in your love
Lost in your holy bliss
Your everlasting kiss
disappear in your love

I feel your presence
Can taste your essence
I hold you in me like a prayer
Your every motion
Magic explosion
Lost without you in despair

Let it begin
I breathe you in
Vanish again

Gone in the sweet abyss
I will cease to exist
disappear in your love
Lost in your holy bliss
Your everlasting kiss
disappear in your love


07. On A Day Like Today

Crazy, wake up
Outside the signs are pointing east
And she's drifting away
She takes her heartbreak to go
She knows I'll understand
No change of plan

Her love was already gone
Before we came undone
She runs like rivers and rain
I looked away on a day like today...

Easy, distance
She plays it cool inside she's hoping
Love will be there
Afraid this road never ends
She pretends to like to this way
I can't make her stay

Her love was already gone
Before we came undone
She runs like rivers and rain
I'll never be the same
Her love was already gone
I looked away on a day like today...

But something's telling me
That you want me to say
Just stay
But I'm broken
We're just the same you know
We're letting it go

Crazy, wake up
Inside the signs are pointing west
And I'm driving away

I take my heartbreak to go
'Cause I know
She won't look back
No change of plan

Our love was already gone
Before we came undone
We run like rivers and rain
We'll never be the same
Our love was already gone
Before we came undone
We run like rivers and rain
We looked away on a day like today...


08. Livin' Just To Die

Come and get your peace
Before it's too late
Ain't enough to go round
Best not hesitate
Don't see what you do
Just do what you see
The system's tried and true
One day guarantee

Ain't that your soul flying
Out your window?

Run 'til you burn
Fooled 'til you cry
Shoot through the blur
Livin' just to die


Come take a bite
Before the word gets out
This is fight or flight
Don't get left without
Don't know what you live
Just live what you know

And watch your soul flying
Out your window

Run 'til you burn
Fooled 'til you cry
Shoot through the blur
Livin' just to die
Bet 'til you loose

Squeeze 'til it's dry
Climb 'til you fall
Livin' just to die
...Chasing nothing

Wondering how long will
You believe it
Wondering how long till
You can see it...

Run 'til you burn
Fooled 'til you cry
Shoot through the blur
Livin' just to die
Bet 'til you loose
Squeeze 'til it's dry
Climb 'til you fall
Livin' just to die
...Chasing nothing


09. Short Flight To Mexico

He took a shot
He aimed it well
Her eyes were closed
He whispered she must never tell
She had no choice
One little voice
All girls grow up in time
But she still pays the price

Dead trust - he's the killer
Can't keep it buried in her
Tradin' in bruises for highway hotels
Love lives - she can feel it
Her soul he couldn't steal it
She's selling her secrets to get out of hell

Bar full of flies
She's holdin' back
Won't be the first time
That she's tried, won't be the last

Can't fill the void
Can't be destroyed
Bad endings start somewhere
It's time for truth or dare


Dead trust - he's the killer
Can't keep it buried in her

Tradin' in bruises for highway hotels
Love lives - she can feel it
Her soul he couldn't steal it
She's selling her secrets to get out of hell

She took a shot
She aimed it well
His eyes were closed
She whispered, "See you in hell"
They heard the bang
Couldn't give a damn
Short flight to Mexico
This time she'll let it go

Dead trust - He's the killer
Can't keep it buried in her
Tradin' in bruises for highway hotels
Love lives - she can feel it
Her soul he couldn't steal it
She's selling her secrets to get out of hell


10. Generica

My land is wide
My skies are blue
My goals are high
My mark is you

My hands are red
My legs are long
My word is spread
Be it right or wrong

Good luck getting me to commit
My a.k.a. is hypocrite
Rather be bullying the underfed
And treat you like you got a hole in your head

I go...
Right round pushing out the riff raff
No matter where it came from
Never mind the wisdom
Only see it my way
Take it or the highway
Welcome to the land of Generica


My grass is green
My bonds are junk
My truth looks sheen
My soul's in a funk

My eyes are blind
My talk is cheap
My heart is fickle
My tax is steep

Try my McNuggets and a side of fries
Just might kill you off but never-mind
Call my doctor to set up a time
Two hundred grand oughta do just fine

I go...
Right round pushing out the riff raff
No matter where it came from
Never mind the wisdom
You only have two choices
Guest list or black list
Welcome to the land of Generica

Don't go thinking outside of the box
Might have to kick you right in the crotch
Stick with me Mr. Stereotype
You know it man, I'll keep you up on the hype

I go...
Right round imposing my creation
Mass produce it for you
Everything looks brand new
Put it all on credit
A hundred years to pay it
Force you to agree
While your smiling at me
Whoopee!

I go...
Right round pushing out the riff raff
No matter where it came from
Never mind the wisdom
Only see it my way
Take it or the highway
Welcome to the land of Generica, Generica


11. Can't Take It Back

Brave face in the final hour
Gave way to a higher power
Raise the flag in the city street
But nothing seems to go the way you planned

You sent the word down from above
To break the balls of your bully cuz
But two wrongs ain't making right
Now we're in so deep that there's no easy way out...

No you can't take it back now
The whole world has seen how
You covered all your tracks and
Wrapped yourself in blood red tape

No doubt people should be free
Be sure to practice what you preach
Half good intentions can go either way
Now we're in so deep that there's no easy way out...

No you can't take it back now
The whole world has seen how
You covered all your tracks and
Wrapped yourself in blood red tape

Guess I'll see you in hell
Don't you know we're all just the same man?

Can't take it back now
The whole world has seen how
You covered all your tracks and
Wrapped yourself in blood red tape
Meanwhile you're spinning all the facts
For you kaleidoscope escape
Your diplomatic monkey wrench
Claims it's self defense
Spare no expense


12. Blue Suede Shoes (acoustic)

Music by Kip Winger, cello by John Catchings
I am the son who believed in the call
Standing beside you I witness it all
Walk hand in hand through cities of clay
Far from the ocean so far from the ocean

You wonder why
Don't you know someone you'd die for?

Put on my blue suede shoes all for you...

I'm not a trophy you hang on your wall
Levy illusion rob Peter pay Paul
I brave the distance I take the fall
Of extreme words unspoken with deeper devotion

Free to decide
Salute the lives laid down before me

Put on my blue suede shoes ah...
Red, white and blue suede shoes all for you...

One look around
Won't you see someone you live for?

Put on my blue suede shoes ah...
