Track Name: The Bridge Is Out
The Bridge Is Out
Last night, I found myself. Didn’t know I was looking for meaning I meant to get loaded.
I meant to forget everything that I know to be true. I’m no poet.
But the shapes in the haze and the smoke showed me where I was going.
Where I was going and where I’m meant to be.

The Days count down.
The years go by.
You can’t count the ways you feel unsatisfied.
The worlds gone flat.
The lies are true.
The lines you told to them all were really meant for you.

High Point of life, the end of the bottle.
Wake up or it’s all over today.
The end of the lies, go find yourself.
We know we can live it, we know who we are.

The winter fell on New York City, I cringed in my coat as I walk down the avenues.
Lost again, I’m lost again.
The snow blind tracks could lead me astray, but I found myself on the 6 going downtown.
At union square I let it hit me that these were the people I knew were still going nowhere.
Track Name: Bite The Neck
Bite the Neck
We're the last of a dying bread.
We're the last of a broken scene.
But they can't keep us out of this sleeping town
this plea is loud.
We wear our hearts on our sleeves.

The Church halls are now empty.
Once full of screaming kids.
One venue would change.
Your friends would change.
Your life would change.
Just water under the bridge.

So look out of your window.
See the faces all walk by.
And Look into your mirror.
See the pain in your eyes.

We're growing older each day,
but my ideals still stay the same.
Just get in the van.
Stick to the plan.
Travel this land.
Nothing gets in our way.

So look out of your window.
See the country pass us by.
And look into your Mirror.
And ask yourself why?

So look out of your window.
See nothing but clear skies.
And smash that fucken mirror.
And sing with me and cry...
Track Name: Spoonful of Sugar
Spoonful of Sugar
Darling, tell me who to be.
Tell me what you need.
With each passing day
I'm fighting through your haze.

I'll get your medicine.
Prescribe you anything,
to make you feel alright.
You keep me waiting here.
And I'm still waiting here, waiting for your call.

And what happen to that girl
that brightened up our world?
She's lost and can't be found.
And you’re dragging me down

Just take your medicine.
Painkillers and Vicodin.
You"ll never be alright.
You keep me waiting here.
And I’m still waiting here.
Waiting for your call.

Waiting for your fall.
Track Name: Alone In My Principles
Alone In My Principles
I don’t care
when the leaves start to change.
A year goes by everything’s the same.
We live our lives
on autopilot.
An unrealistic target, we can’t hit.

You know that we can never win.
The odds are stacked again us.
You know that we lost when we began.
But that will never stop us.

We know that we will make it through.
Yeah that’s an understatement.
We know that we will make it through.

I don’t care what you have to say to me
or the nameless faces on the screen.
You should be whatever it is you wanna be
cause someday soon you will see.
There will be someone who holds you down
be someone who tells you you’re not FREE!

There will be someone who holds you back.
Tries real hard to knock you off the track.

but you gotta tell them...

I don't care.
We don’t care.
Track Name: One More For The Road
One More for the Road
A new struggle.
Unfamiliar hurt.
And it seems like the world has no logic.
A lost life, emptiness and tragic.

And above it all
A face we can’t see but must recall.
Too soon the curtains drawn
…but we’re marching on!

I watch the screen and I see you screaming.
Pick up the phone and I hear you weeping.
It’s not fair that our lives are changing.
Feel emptiness in any situation.
Say “come back, come back to me.”
I’ll live well and you’ll live through me.
A new sense of urgency.
A new person to honor by memory.

We move forward
not knowing what to do.
Cause we know we’ll never get an answer
for how to deal with this disaster.

And our hands are tied
Your memories show in the tears you’ve cried.
Now that the whiskeys flows
…it’s one more for the road
Track Name: A Toast To The Hopeful
A Toast to the Hopeful
We lay awake at night
Staring straight up towards the sky.
Never thinking of the "how?"
But just wondering bout the "why?"

To all of those who want a new way to live.
To all of those who want change for a drink.
For all of those who pray for the day
they're not down & out cause they
never gave up, never gave up, never gave up.

I hope this fire burns out before you breathe in my smoke.
The way this city dreams when they are ignoring your screams.
And may the children see that we can live together.
And may the parents see there are people sleeping in the
Streets.

I hope this fire burns out before you breathe in my smoke.
A world that’s really free, with equal opportunity.
And may the white house see this is no silly pipe dream.
And may the whole world see we can do it if we try.
