Breathe deep fall asleep tell yourself you’re better off alone high tide waves arrive the time has come for all of this to come undone wait a minute man you’ve got me standing on the edge again the last thing you said was that it’s never going to end what did you expect when the world comes crashing in the last time I checked there was just a minute left for all of this to come undone smokescreen don’t believe I can finally feel the real thing in the world turns and another day is gone wait a minute man you’ve got me standing on the edge again the last thing you said was that it’s never going to end what did you expect when the world comes crashing in the last time I checked there was just a minute left for all of this to come undone

The Rocker 02:58
I am your main man if you're looking for trouble I take no lip no one's tougher than me I'd kick your face you'd soon be seeing double Hey little girl keep your hands off of me I'm a rocker I'm a rocker I'm a roller too, baby I'm a rocker Down at the juke joint me and the boys are stompin' Bippin' an' boppin' and telling a dirty joke or two In walked this chick and I knew she was up to something And I kissed her right there out of the blue I said, "Hey baby, meet me I'm a tough guy Got my cycle outside, wanna try?" She just looked at me and rolled them big eyes and said, "Ooh, I'd do anything for you, 'cause you're a rocker" That's right I'm a rocker I'm a roller too, honey I'm a rocker I love to rock and roll I get my records at the Rock On stall Rock and roll Teddy boy, you got them all Rocker I love to rock and roll I get my records at the Rock On stall Sweet rock and roll Teddy boy, you got them all I'm a rocker

Ghosted 03:34
No one can spot the ghost in me I’d let it out but then the world would see It feels so real you start to say reminds me of the Sound’s we used to make seven years of broken mirrors at least we live them all the hardest way the world comes crumbling down around you leaves without a sound to taunt you there’s no way that I could haunt you wrong I know it seems there’s no one on your side tonight but I’ve been here all along waking up and falling through the floor takes some getting used to I watch it happen all again replaying thoughts spinning around in my head shedding tears for broken years seems to me to be the biggest waste the world comes crumbling down around you leaves without a sound to taunt you there’s no way that I could haunt you wrong I know it seems there’s no one on your side tonight but I’ve been here all along

Miles Away 03:49
Breathe in the night winds and I can feel it starting to spin the cold air but nobody cares you’re miles away but I can feel it still in pardon the way that I am trying to deal your miles away but I can feelBut I can feel you rolling on and it takes too long and before you know it I’ll be gone Burn down and let it in stop the world and start again lost in a days you’ve got a way of cashing in And when the winds come back again blowing through my mind a skeleton a nightmare but nobody cares I’m miles away but I can hear it still I’m dying each day or I am starting to heal and miles away but I can hear it drumming on and it hits too hard and before you know it I’ll be gone Burn down and let it in stop the world and start again do you remember the days we lost it all and nothings the same it’s only under the skin look away and we are at it again lost in a daze you’ve got a way of cashing in And out of the ashes of phoenix is rising and then from the fire a lightning bolt the city at night is full of surprises and that’s why I’ll be going home

f you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man You win some, lose some, all the same to me The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say I don't share your greed, the only card I need is the Ace of Spades The Ace of Spades Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil Going with the flow, it's all a game to me Seven or eleven, snake eyes watching you Double up or quit, double stake or split, the Ace of Spades The Ace of Spades You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools But that's the way I like it baby I don't wanna live for ever And don't forget the joker! Pushing up the ante, I know you gotta see me Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again I see it in your eyes, take one look and die The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be the Ace of Spades The Ace of Spades

Concentrate on getting home it’s hard to see between the lines in the road blinding lights all in a row I swear one day I’m gonna learn to let it go blindfold times are toxic encore isn’t it enough and when I leave what’s left is yours if it were me I set a fire and close the door but I burn with intensity the wild lights and all that fever brings blindfold times are toxic encore isn’t it enough hammer home the point you’re making eyes closed you’ll never see too much wake the neighbors called the papers as if you haven’t seen enough the world spills from a paper cup walk-through vapors and see-through chambers that’s a long long way to run to find out you’re the only one

Start It Off 02:38
Heart racing don’t go chasing your dreams now that’s a fantasy in the clouds embracing imitation saturations sounded good till now hey bright eyes worlds collide who’s got one more shout before they take it With all we’ve lost will never make it Dead man walking no one talking I found my fire you found me out another night it’s no surprise you lied right through your teeth I know you tried but all that’s wasted and now is the time for us to take it started off with my heart racing bet it all do it again now I’m left with my head spinning I’m a wild card I’ll let you go I lost it all but I should’ve known left for the road less taken I’ve never seen a model T that clean last meal final appeal you know what I mean you know what I mean don’t go chasing I know you’re tired of faking it started off with my heart racing bet it all do it again now I’m left with my head spinning I’m a wild card I’ll let you go I lost it all but I should’ve known

Seven thirty seven comin' out of the sky Won't you take me down to Memphis on a midnight ride I want to move Playin' in a travelin' band Yeah Well I'm flyin' 'cross the land tryin' to get a hand Playin' in a travelin' band Take me to the hotel baggage gone, oh well Come on, come on won't you get me to my room I want to move Playin' in a travelin' band Yeah Well I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand Playin' in a travelin' band Listen to the radio talkin' 'bout the last show Someone got excited, had to call the state militia Want to move Playin' in a travelin' band Yeah Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand Playin' in a travelin' band Here we come again on a Saturday night With your fussin' and your fightin' won't you get me to the rhyme I want to move Playin' in a travelin' band Yeah Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand Playin' in a travelin' band Playin' in a travelin' band Playin' in a travelin' band Won't you give myself a hand? Playin' in a travelin' band Well, I'm flyin' 'cross the land, tryin' to get a hand Playin' in a travelin' band

Golden 02:50
The fever the fire we live through a wire from all around I can almost hear the same old story doesn’t it get boring the light disappears the world burns out of control and melts your heart of gold as time comes on done we all need relief from the temperatures it’s hard to breathe we’ve heard it before The memories fall short disintegrating the world burns out of control and melts your heart of gold I can’t help it every time I think it’s over it’s just moving slower and just like disappearing ink this time nothing comes to mind there’s no air it’s hard to sleep here I toss and turn all night because outside there’s a fire in the sky the world burns out of control and melts your heart of gold

I want to live with a cinnamon girl I could be happy the rest of my life With a cinnamon girl A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night You see us together, chasing the moonlight My cinnamon girl Ten silver saxes, a bass with a bow The drummer relaxes and waits between shows For his cinnamon girl A dreamer of pictures, I run in the night You see us together, chasing the moonlight My cinnamon girl Pa sent me money now I'm gonna make it somehow I need another chance You see your baby loves to dance Yeah, yeah, yeah
