All Of Our Sins

We think we’re smart but we’re so dumb
One day soon our time will come
Feels like we’re going down
A billion miles of empty space
A billion tears for the human race
Feels like we’re going down

It’s the same story                
Again and again
When will it ever change?

I could scream and I could shout
Open my heart and tear it out
I could howl at the stars above
And tear them down in a rage of love
I could cry, a river dry

With the pain I’ve seen we could make a cross
Build a mountain range with the things I've lost
Feels like we’re going down
The world goes on but it’s like we’re blind
And pretty soon we’ll be out of time
Feels like we’re going down

I could scream and I could shout
Open my heart and tear it out
I could howl at the stars above
And tear them down in a rage of love
I could cry, a river dry

When do we pay for all of our sins?
When do we pay for all of our sins?

I could scream and I could shout
Open my heart and tear it out
I could howl at the stars above
And tear them down in a rage of love
I could cry, a river dry

I could scream and I could shout
Open my heart and tear it out
I could howl at the stars above
And tear them down in a rage of love
I could cry, a river dry

When do we pay for all of our sins?

 

Dark And Lonely Child

My daddy was a working man
He was caught in a life he didn’t understand
He lived up on the high rise states
When he saw the light it was just too late

My mamma was a mixed up girl
And she lived her life in a mixed up world
We left her standing by the gates
How come we love the things that we love to hate

Well you can go crazy
Just staying alive
You do what you have to
When you’re a dark and lonely child

Your heart can grow a brand new skin
You can twist the knife but you won’t get in
The stars above will fade and die
Before you know all the reasons why

The thunder and lightning
The wind blowing wild
The moon and the shadows
And a dark and lonely child

Well you can go crazy
Just staying alive
You do what you have to
When you’re a dark and lonely child

Don’t go you can just say no
You can be who you want to be

 

Chains

I couldn’t breathe
I couldn’t speak
My heart was weary
My heart was weak
You took my hand
What could I do?
I’d never known
A love like you

I couldn’t change
I couldn’t change
I couldn’t change, but you

You were shaking me round and round
You were breaking me down and down
And I was falling without a sound
In chains, in chains, in chains I was bound

I couldn’t see
I couldn’t hear
I stumbled on
In darkness and in fear
This wounded soul    
It built a wall
It built it high
It built it tall

I couldn’t change
I couldn’t change
I couldn’t change, but you

You were shaking me round and round
You were breaking me down and down
And I was falling without a sound
In chains, in chains, in chains I was bound

Strange how love kills you
Strange how loves heals you
Strange, strange, strange
How love can save you

You were shaking me round and round
You were breaking me down and down
And I was falling without a sound
In chains, in chains, in chains I was bound

 

Crying Mercy

It’s not so easy
When you’re down upon your luck
It’s not so easy
When you’re down but can’t get up
You try to run
But you can’t even crawl
You lie there helpless
With your back against the wall

Crying mercy
Crying mercy
Mercy
Crying mercy

Your friends all tell you
That it’s just your point of view
If you could change your mind
There’s nothing you can’t do
But there are times
When everything you do is wrong
You lie there screaming
In your bed the whole night long

Crying mercy
Crying mercy
Mercy
Crying mercy

It’s not so easy
When you’re down upon your luck
It’s not so easy
When you’re down but can’t get up
You try to run
But you can’t even crawl
You lie there helpless
With your back against the wall

Crying mercy
Crying mercy
Mercy
Crying mercy

 

Nothing We Can Do

How many men have you defeated

How many men have you destroyed

You bring me flowers in the evening

And in the morning bring me joy

 

But now the sunlight turns to ashes

As we disappear from view

And our love it burns and crashes

And there’s nothing we can do

 

No there’s nothing we can do

 

I thought that you would always want me

I thought that all your words were true

But now we make our love in silence

And there’s nothing we can do

 

No there’s nothing we can do

 

Saved By Rock And Roll

And so you closed the door
And took off your pretty dress
Everything was crashing round
Inside my head

The morning came
And still I could not make it clear
That I could stay inside of you
For a billion years

Cause when you touched me
Oh, baby
The devil took me from below

And you saved me
You saved my goddamn soul
You saved me
Saved me with rock and roll

The stars were breaking out
Upon the wounded sky
To the dancing of the universe
I closed my eyes

The screams of love
Could still be heard upon your bed
Every single move we made
Every word we said

And then you touched me
Oh, baby
The devil took me from below

And you saved me
You saved my goddamn soul
You saved me
Saved me with rock and roll

I could see the beams of light
Upon your sleepy hair
I could see the end of time
And you and I were there

You saved me
You saved my goddamn soul
You saved me
Saved me with rock and roll

 

Say You’ll Be Mine

Take off your red dress
Untie your bow
Move a little closer
And whisper low
Tell me that you’ll
Never let me go

Come on
Say that you’ll be mine
Come on
Say that you’ll be mine

I’ll be your gypsy
Your lucky charm
I’ll bring you flowers
I’ll read your palm
I’ll hold you all night
In my loving arms

Come on
Say that you’ll be mine
Come on
Say that you’ll be mine

No one
Loves you like I do
No one
Will ever be so true

Give me your word now
(Don’t break it)
Tell me you love me
(Don’t fake it)
I’ll bring you poetry and rhyme

Come on
Say that you’ll be mine
Come on
Say that you’ll be mine

Come on
Say that you’ll be mine
Come on
Say that you’ll be mine

 

Six Feet Deep

The days are falling
The days are falling one by one
The nights are calling
Here comes the setting of the sun

Six feet deep
Is where I’m bound
Six feet deep
And a hole in the ground

Don’t keep me waiting
Don’t keep me waiting all night long
Oh pretty baby
Don’t keep me hanging on and on

Six feet deep
Is where I’m bound
Six feet deep
And a hole in the ground

Six feet deep
I swear I’m bound
Six feet deep
And a hole in the ground

 

Stand Tall

Well this world can be a little bit lonely
And sometimes just a little too hard
And it can take the things you believe in
And it can tear them apart

I thought I’d made it through this pain
But I’m on my knees again
But that’s okay, cause someday I will

Stand up and let it all out
Be proud and take a bow
Stand tall and be happy
Stand tall, stand proud

I don’t want to spend my life as a loser
I don’t want to be the talk of the town
I don’t need my friends to tell me
It’s my dreams that are bringing me down

Their words are cheap where silence speaks
Of poetry and rhyme
But that’s just fine, cause when it’s time

I’ll stand up and let it all out
Be proud and take a bow
Stand tall and be happy
Stand tall, stand proud

Well I’m standing here waiting but I don’t know why
One man’s tears are another man’s smile
And one man’s reasons are a another man’s lies
And as one man breaks one will rise

To stand up and let it all out
Be proud and take a bow
Stand tall and be happy
Stand tall, stand proud

Now there are times in this life
You’ve got no choice you’ve just got to fight
When you back’s against that wall
Will you break or will you fall
Or stand tall

 

The Fear Inside

The shadows of your broken life
Come crawling in the night
You lie there with your heart on fire
Praying for the light

You try to run
But you can’t hide
Pretty baby can’t you see
It’s just the fear inside

You tell your friends there’s nothing new
You’ve seen it all before
You only speak to criticise
You say there’s nothing more

You told the truth
But you still lied
Pretty baby can’t you see
It’s just the fear inside

One day you’ll be dead and gone
But who will know your name
Sheltered in your loneliness
And sheltered from the pain

Well some things live
And some things die
Pretty baby can’t you see
It’s just the fear inside

 

War Is Mad

I love her
She loves me
Why can’t we
All be free?
Are we blind?
Can’t we see?

The soldiers only come
When we fail inside
When all is said and all is done
It’s suicide
In this world of broken dreams
I must have heard a thousand screams
This wounded heart
Goes on and on and on and on

Girl loves boy
Boy loves girl
Why can’t love
Rule the world?
Can’t we leave
Our flags unfurled?

War is mad
War is dumb
We want peace
Not your guns
Watch them die
One by one

The soldiers only come
When we fail inside
When all is said and all is done
It’s suicide
In this world of broken dreams
I must have heard a thousand screams
This wounded heart
Goes on and on and on and on
