Track Name: Go Back Down
Go Back Down

Well there’s a damn good chance that we don’t know what we’re doing
We might leave this world in a heap of smoke and ruin
We could shake our ass all over the place
We could set it on fire then head into space
But there’s a damned good chance that there’s no turning back now!
OOOO!

We can go back down (that desolate road)
We can go back down (to an age without soul)
We can go back down (and never go home)
We Can Go We Can Go We Can Go-Go-Go-Go-Go!
Track Name: She Don't Worry
She Don’t Worry

Can anybody help me, pick up these pieces I find?
And if I rearrange them, then I’ve made up my mind
Yeah I’m fine, I’m just blurry
I fell for a storm of a girl then she blew me away
So Beware if she’s Bored
Better run for the door

She is blind to her fury
Unaware how wild and dark are the games she’ll play
But She Don’t Mind, She Don’t worry
Her thoughts are on another world a million miles away
So Beware if she’s Bored
Better run for the door

She Don’t Mind, She Don’t Worry
She’ll break you into pieces of her then throw them away
She’s Unkind, in no hurry
She’ll eats up all your time leave you broken and aged
So Beware if she’s Bored
Better run for the Door
Track Name: 7 Years
7 Years

Three things can happen when you throw the ball
Two ‘them are bad
Someone’s been drinking all my alcohol
Another Midwestern lad
I got to make it through this stage of my life
With all the pieces in place
Feels like I’m dancing on the edge of a knife
Shadow across my face

So won’t you call my name when you’re feeling lonely, you know I’ll be right there at your door
You know that you’re my one and only wanna make love to ya down on the floor

I turned my back I everything that I knew
Made my pilgrimage west
I took me seven years to get back to you
Put my soul to the test

So won’t you call my name when you’re feeling lonely, you know I’ll be right there at your door
You know that you’re my one and only wanna make love to ya down on the floor
Track Name: Why Won't You Listen?
Why Won’t You Listen?

You just sit there watching the world go around
Every time that you were needed you just sat back down
Complacent, bored within the life that you live
Always seem to get what you want but you never want to give

Why won’t You Listen? (Why did you wait so long?)
Keep telling you times are tough
You just sit and stare at the Wall (like a broke dick dog)
Haven’t You had Enough?

Someone’s calling for action almost everyday
But you find it so easy to look the other way
Take all this corruption in the world with a grain of salt
Just accept it as fact because it’s not your fault

(CHORUS)

What’s your excuse this time, when you’re nowhere in sight
Maybe you seem to think that it’s not your fight
Keep waiting for you to take some kind of stand
Never been a better time for you to do all that You Can!

(CHORUS)
Track Name: You Found the Lord
You Found the Lord

I remember when you were younger
You took your daddy’s car for a ride
Then you flipped it over on tight curve
No one knows how you survived

Back in those days when we were together
Flat broke and looking for some fun
You always did all of my cocaine
Wouldn’t even leave me some

How in the world, did you get to here?
I thought you was goin’ to hell for sure
But you found the lord!

Now I see you got a Bible on your shelf
Didn’t even know you could read
And that silver cross that you wear about your neck
Tells me you a soul in need
(CHORUS)
Are you tryin’ to be someone’s house wife?
Making up for all those days of sin
Is that all it takes to make you happy?
Or will these walls keep closing in?

You found the Lord!
Track Name: Wake 'n' Bake
Wake 'n' Bake

Wake 'n' bake, I got the shakes, I been doing this shit for 20 days
I know, you know what we're doin', baby, after the show
Bein' up for 25 days and now i ain't got a thing to say
I know, you know what we're doin', baby, after the show
Track Name: This City Cries All Night
This City Cries All Night

We were born in the cracks in the wall
Got our names off of bathroom stalls
Can’t tell the difference between good and the bad
Cursing the names of our mom and our dad
Why don’t you come and see what we see!
This city cries all night/ This city Moans and Bawls
This city never sleeps/ This city eats all her young
Our eyes glow with the buzz of the neon signs
Walk through the alleys in crooked lines
We Hate the Rich! We take all their dough
We Hide away in the dark where the fuzz won’t go
Why don’t you come and see what we see!
This city cries all night/ This city made from steel and bone
This city murder is her love/ This city is the underworld
This city cries all night/ This city Squeals, and Moans and Bawls
This city never-ever sleeps/ This city eats her all her young
We can speak in the moan of the siren howls
Spread like diseases through the urban bowels
We make our way through another night
Sharpen our teeth for another fight
We walk through the garbage for miles and miles and Miles!
This city cries all night/ This city bleeds smoke and oil
This city murder is he love/ This city is the underworld
Track Name: Under the Feral Spell
Under the Feral Spell

Do what you like, if you like yourself get moving
Do what you like if you like yourself love yourself
Do what you want if you want to get grooving
Just do what you want if you want yourself to be yourself

Hey c’mon Dance Under the Feral Spell

Get what you need if you need to feel the movement
Get what you need if you need yourself to love yourself
Get in the mind if you’re mind is always turning
Get in your mind take yourself somewhere else

Hey C’mon Dance Under the Feral Spell

This is your life and your life is always moving
This is your life you can take yourself to somewhere else
This is the World and the World is always moving
This is the World give yourself a higher self

Hey c’mon Dance Under the Feral Spell

Do what you like if your moving
Do what you want but take care of yourself
Get what you need it’ll be groovy
Think what you want but take care of yourself

This is your life your life is always moving this is life take yourself somewhere else
This is the world the world is always moving take yourself somewhere else

Get what you need
Do what you want
Think what you will
Get in the world
