Low On Lime 03:13
Low On Lime You got groove you're the seventh son You got funk because you found someone but when you got soul everything is going your way In your circles you watch the vibes get hot your eyes tell lies to all the cute little snots but when you got soul you're blowing everybody away (Chorus) Because you're a lemon you sting when they bite you're pretty cheap and you always look bright you're bitter but they still use you all the time you might realize they're running low on lime. You drink to Lennon with the elegant bachelors paying your debts to the musical masters when you got soul dancing in the kitchen stoned All the Gods will make you feel you have no faith you lead yourself so you don't feel afraid but when you got soul it doesn't matter who you bone (Chorus)

Slow Death My Friend You been giving your years to something can't get what you want even though you're having fun it's starting to haunt it's a crime to do the time that's a slow death my friend You have people you meet out on the street but you can't connect you don't see them again it's pretty lame when you only know a name that's a slow death my friend (Chorus) You thought you had it you thought you had it all but every time you run with it you run into a wall that's a slow death my friend You got so much to offer so much to regret living these years to suffer "you ain't quite got there yet" how much heart does one spend before you get to the end? That's a slow death my friend. You play it cool like you ain't been to school you're nobody's baby and you're nobody's fool It's a crime to do the time that's a slow death my friend (Chorus)

Life Is A Party Alone in the world and there's no one to hide behind I am a mask but I know I'm way out of line God knows it's fun God knows it's fun He's put me around so many happy people and left me feeling so sad and evil Am I ruining your fun? God knows it's fun deep down. (Chorus) So don't bring me down because my head feels so dead I always hurt from the things that you've said Life is a party she laughs 'til she's married away So don't bring me down because my head feels so dead I always hurt from the things that you've said Life is a party she laughs 'til she's married away I know the feeling of spoiling the party but we're not the same we're just hot and horny not too much to do but have a drink on you Telling the stories about what she's put up with she's just the angel who makes me feel selfish Am I ruining your fun? God knows it's fun deep down (Chorus)

So Many Ways I Need Your Love So many ways so many ways I need your love Don't feel like starting over We've got what it takes to make it through So many ways so many ways I need your love Follow me more and I'll make a girl of you (Chorus) So many ways I need your love and I don't feel I don't have to hide anything out of the blue Oh my joy is hard to hide Give me a moment I'll give you my time

Blow It All Down The Line I'm just here doing fine sharing this light of mine Got friends devoted lover and a life who's to say in all my time I won't make a mistake or nine who's to say that I won't blow it all down the line? I've gone many unknown roads Seems I know the way to go I don't know if that's the answer to find a fate that you don't know Something may come along to blow Successes afterglow and I'll live out all my days In the lone cold and snow Things are good and fine for now but who's to say I'll take a bow at the end with grace and pride up upon cloud nine? I'll look back at other times I had to climb back from all the crimes Who's to say that I won't just blow it all down the line? Who's to say that I won't just blow it all down the line?

Don't Be That Guy Don't get yourself in that fix Just be patient and vent on your own Don't want to be that guy in a bar sitting there crying living all alone (Chorus) Don't be that guy Don't be that guy You can think about it but don't be that guy. Someone always cutting you off Someone always standing in the way You can shout you can push or scoff You know what they're all gonna say (Chorus) (Bridge) You losing heart and you don't know you don't know all there is to know If someone is hurting because you're burning the flow Better find somewhere better you can go. (Chorus) You're acting on something not going to the source The source I'm sad to say would probably be ashamed You seem to act less with sense than force Do you think even Jesus would want to be named? (Chorus)
7.
Please Still Love Me Be My Girl (Chorus) I'm just trying to figure out this world While I'm mistakes won't you please still love me be my girl I can't say I've got it all figured out I'm tired of carrying on without knowing what it's all about When I say I got it and I say something down That just means I got issues I ain't worked out When I'm fighting a war out there on my own That means that's my problem and you don't need to know If you see me crying please give me a helping heart you can't see the tears but it's tearing me apart you can't say I don't feel things when everyone's rolling along But I tell you I got wings when you all sing along (Chorus)

Gypsy Dreamer It's a rainy day and I'm feeling fine there's a light in me and it's going to shine No matter what you're all going to do to me there's nothing coming between this beauty. (Chorus) I'm the soul and the heart and the karma of a world that's losing control because I'm free I have time to become a gypsy dreamer who undid the soul. I went so far in my journey all desire's slipped away I've given all my possessions no tomorrows no yesterdays (Chorus) I'm following with my soul and religion will follow me because if life is only a goal there's nothing beautiful you'll ever see (Chorus)
9.
Saints 04:24
Saints I'm on the land looking for a helping hand Jerusalem 10 miles down the road and I'm walking to the beat of my talking and I hope someday to get back home (Chorus) I want you to feed me when I'm dying I want you to let me sleep when I'm faint I want to keep loving the people I'm trying my very best to make into saints. I ask for help on a bad luck day then you cross the other side of the street I want your love to be so genuine reconsider baby your evil deed (Chorus)
10.
I'm Going To Join The Circus It ain't at all that strange to wonder if it's over but when you concentrate on strange your heart says that it's colder (Chorus) You've got a hang up, yeah You won't let me in on What's wrong with this picture? Pretty summer day coming from the courthouse I'm hiding from your smile The settlement not equal (Chorus) (Bridge) Wonder how it feels - to suffer me? To love the pain instead? It ain't at all that strange to keep making life hard I want some news I'm going to join the circus (Chorus) Pretty summer day I'm going to join the circus It's a pretty summer day I'm going to join the circus.

The Town Not Yet Fallen As I breeze through this city there's a long way to go Back to these roots, boy, in the deep prairie snow lies my forefathers tombstone where he laid his life down on the town not yet fallen to the cold prairie ground. He came here to seek fortune for his days on the plow and for his sons and his daughters made the life they live now onto the new world but one thing won't change his blood's in the soil here in the town that he named (Chorus) Lies my forefathers tombstone where he laid his life down on the town not yet fallen to the cold prairie ground We can send in the pavement and the big trains of steel skyscrapers and poison and hearts that don't feel in the moment remembering the world that became is the ghost calling through time the town by his name (Chorus)
