Track Name: Things More Important
THINGS MORE IMPORTANT

Did you ever have a day
In your life
You didn’t do a single thing
Stared off into space
Feeling fine
Comfortable with everything

Are you older now
In tune with
Things more important

Did you ever meet a girl
In your life
Who simply took your breath away
Ever see a painting
Or hear a song
Knowing that you felt that way

Are you older now
In tune with
Things more Important

Things more important
Like keeping your heart
Locked away
From the the things that you love
But can’t save
From the things that you love

Did you ever find a needle
In the hay
Ever find that pot of gold
Did it make you feel special
Make you say
That everything was yours to hold

Are you older now
In tune with
Things more important
Are you older now
In tune with
Things more important
Track Name: One Shot at Glory
ONE SHOT AT GLORY

One chance to know me
Is all you get
She looked at me and sighed
Life’s full of moments
We all regret
Don’t make this one of mine

And the loneliness
Her heart expressed
When her eyes looked into mine
Said one chance to know me
Is all you get

One shot at glory
Is all you get
You must leave your fears behind
The world’s full of people
You can’t forget
I’ve spent my lifetime trying

And the loneliness
Her heart expressed
When her eyes looked into mine
Said one shot at glory
Is all you get

A chance to feel alive
Leave the Safe House far behind
A reckless place to go
A place you want to know

One chance to love me
Is all you get
Because I’m not the patient kind
The rest of the city
Is safe in bed
And it’s almost closing time

And the loneliness
Her eyes expressed
When her heart looked into mine
Said one shot at glory
Is all you get
And the loneliness
Our hearts express
Like a drum that’s beating time
Saying one shot at glory
Is all you get
One shot at glory
Is all we get
Track Name: Fall Away
FALL AWAY

She went down to the water
Cold and deep
Trusting in the angels
Her soul to keep
She waded in the water
Closed her eyes
Feeling like a spirit
Under blue black skies

Fall away, fall away
Life’s a dream
Dry your tears

She floated in the water
Night into day
And all of her sorrow
Washed away
Everything she wanted
Everyone she knew
Became a memory
Fade into blue

Fall away, fall away
Life’s a dream
Dry your tears
Fall away, fall away
You’ll be safe sister dear
Fall away, fall away

If I were a sailor
I’d be all right
Drifting in the current
Day into Night
Out upon the water
I’d close my eyes
Chasing angels
Under blue black skies

Fall away, fall away
Life’s a dream
Dry your tears
Fall away, fall away
You’ll be safe sister dear
Fall away, fall away
Now you’re home
Dry your tears
Fall away, fall away
Life’s a dream
Track Name: River of Tears
RIVER OF TEARS

River of tears
Sorrow of love
All of these things that are so human
She knows them well enough
Anxious she sleeps
Alone in the night
Tossing and turning to the gunfire
In the pale moonlight

So come away my love
I’ll take you by the hand
The world’s more full of weeping
Than you can understand

Men talk of peace
All that she’s known
Is the peace that you can find
In the time that they take to reload
Justice is done
In heaven or hell
And what’s left we make for ourselves
She knows it well

So come away my love
I’ll take you by the hand
The world’s more full of weeping
Than you can understand

When the world’s gone mad
Who tries to understand
When it’s all so crazy
You can vanish out of hand

River of tears
Sorrow of man
All of these things that are so human
She tries to understand
There’ll be no sleep
No not tonight
Only the echo of the gunfire
In the pale moonlight

So come away my love
I’ll take you by the hand
The world’s more full of weeping
Than you can understand
The world’s more full of weeping
Than you can understand
Track Name: The Surrealist Cafe
THE SURREALIST CAFE

Woman with an eye patch walking by the window
Long hair blowing in the wind
Maybe she’s from Egypt, lately of Morocco
Probably drives a Cadillac with fins
She looks inside the window
One good eye can see me
I smile but, she won’t betray a thing
Maybe she’s had bad news
Probably wants to tell me
Maybe she’s not doing anything

Life is good today at the Surrealist Cafe
My mind is wandering again
Life’s good every day at the Surrealist Cafe
All you have to do is come on in

I’d like to trace her lineage
Find out where she started
We might be related or something
Maybe she’s a Mensa, probably reads the Tarot
Might be Mickey Rourke’s long lost twin
I think she wants to talk now
Lips are almost moving
One foot points toward the door
Maybe she’s attracted, probably thinks I’m handsome
Wants to make a move, but she’s not sure

Life is good today at the Surrealist Cafe
My mind is wandering again
Life’s good every day at the Surrealist Cafe
All you have to do is come on in

Woman with an eye patch looks inside the window
Long hair blowing in the wind
She raises up her hand and extends her middle finger
Turns around and walks away again

Life is good today at the Surrealist Cafe
My mind is wandering again
Life’s good every day at the Surrealist Cafe
My heart
Has melted
Again
Track Name: The Dark and Lonesome Road
THE DARK AND LONESOME ROAD

Martin Luther and Jimmy D
Here comes trouble
Like you’ve never seen
One’s a bully, one’s a cheat
Steal the shoeshine
Right off your feet

They go down alone
The dark and lonesome road
They call their home

Martin Luther say to me
Tip your hat boy, to Mr. D
You might not like us
We don’t care
But, you’ll respect us
Or live in fear

They go down alone
That dark and lonesome road
They call their home

Martin Luther and Jimmy D
Ain’t got no love in their hearts
For either you or me

You know they go down alone
The dark and lonesome road
They call their home
Yes, they go down alone
That dark and lonesome road
They call their home
Track Name: Arsonists
ARSONISTS

A call from a phone booth
In heaven knows where
It rings on and on
But nobody’s there
Sometimes we’re saved
By the simplest things
A moon in the sky
While a telephone rings

A rundown cafe
On the backside of town
A warm shot of bourbon
To help the food down
The waitress is pretty
She looks out of place
Thinking of you
While I look in her face

Partners in crime
It’s almost insane
We burn ourselves down
And pray for the rain
Partners in time
We’re arsonists all
Stand there amazed
As the Temple does fall
Some things don’t come back again

A call from a phone booth
In heaven knows where
It rings on and on
But, I really don’t care
Sometimes we’re saved
By the simplest things
A moon in the sky
While a telephone rings
On and on

Partners in crime
It’s almost insane
We burn ourselves down
And pray for the rain
Partners in time
We’re arsonists all
Stand there amazed
As the Temple does fall
Some things don’t come back again
Track Name: Goddess
GODDESS

There is no use in praying to
Your goddess anymore
Her ears have been filled with stone
There is no long and winding road
That leads you to her door
Now you’re standing all alone

And it’s hard to tell us
What you feel inside
But, you know that something there
Has died
Your heart has been turned to stone

There is no use in searching for
Your Goddess anymore
She’ll no long comfort you
There is no way to go back to
The place you were before
Now you don’t know what to do

And it’s hard to ask us
What to feel inside
But, you know that something isn’t right
It’s not right
Your heart has been turned to stone

She’s got the eyes of Isis
And the heart of a siren
And the will that breaks you right down
You feel like crying
When you hear her sighing
Every time you come around

There is no use to kneel before
Your goddess anymore
She’s only flesh and blood
Like you and me
There is no long and winding road
That leads you to love’s door
That’s all mythology

And it’s hard to tell us
What you feel inside
But, you know that something there
Has died
My heart has been turned to stone
My heart has been turned to stone
Track Name: Damocles' Sword
DAMOCLES’ SWORD

It’s been a hard year all around
Can’t think straight when everything’s upside down
Been a long time, since we’ve known
The kind of peace of mind
That makes a house a home

So tell me do you want me this way
tell me do you want me this way

Tell me one thing I don’t know
If I pack my bag will a single tear even show
Are you restless, mad or bored
Feels more and more
Like I’m sitting under Damocles’ Sword

So tell me do you want me this way
Hurts me more each day
Can’t you find a reason to smile anymore

My tears fall like rain from the sky
I beg you to please let me know why

There’s a high road and a low
One in between, tell me which way to go
If you want me say for sure
I’m losing my mind sitting under Damocles’ Sword

Tell me do you want me this way
Hurts us more each day
Can’t you find a reason to smile
Feels like all the while
That we’ve been sitting under Damocles’ Sword
Like we are sitting under Damocles’ Sword
Track Name: Resurrection
RESURRECTION

I’m ready for a resurrection
Take the coins from my eyes
My fingers are all moving
There’s color in the sky
I’ve been so long down in the black of the tunnel
I can’t breath
I’m ready for a resurrection

I’m ready for some trouble
I think it might be fun
I’ll throw myself a party
And piss off everyone
I’ve been so long down in the dark of the dungeon
I can’t see
I’m ready for some trouble

I’ve been down so long
This town looks like heaven to me
I feel so good I just can’t help but believe
I’m ready for a resurrection

I’m ready for some nightlife
I want to dance on my grave
I made a resolution
I want to ride on a wave
I want to run like a blind man
Into the fires of love
I’m ready for some nightlife

I’m ready for a resurrection
I’m opening my eyes
My heart has started beating
I’m coming back to life
I’ve been so long down in the shadow of the valley
I can’t dream
I’m ready for a resurrection

I’ve been down so long
This town looks like heaven to me
I feel so good I just can’t help but believe
I’m ready for a resurrection
