Track Name: We Made It
WE MADE IT

I got the soul
just like my heroes
at least I believe that
sometimes.

So act like you need it
and sing like you mean it
even when no one’s
listening.

There’s no deceiving
I won’t believe in
and if that’s all you’re giving
it’s all right.

Whisper your secrets
you seem to need them
and if that’s all we’re leaving behind
that’s fine, because,

We made it.

It’s a lonesome waste of emotion
to wait for someone’s notion
of all that I can and could
and all that I won’t but should.
Track Name: Dreamers
DREAMERS

This is a song for all of you dreamers,
the scarred, the scared, the starry-eyed and the schemers.
You who taught me what’s good,
and all I can do and should.

This is a song for all of you dreamers,
the few, the failed, the doubtful and the believers.
You who go into that night,
never to die with the dying light.
Track Name: Soldier
SOLDIER

I went to make my peace with each other,
but everybody knows that you don't mind,
you didn't even try.
Cause what's a fight between a friend and a lover
if it makes you whole,
if it makes you smile,
makes you feel alive?

But I want to find
a quiet place to go
a quiet place to die.

But that's just a way to hide,
it's just another way
to live a quiet lie.

There's another path we could follow,
another battle cry, another war to win,
a way to turn the tide—
walk down to the edge of the water
gaze into the black
and sink or swim for the other side.

Then I won't have to find
a quiet place to go,
a quiet place to die.

Cause that's just a way to hide,
it's just another way
to live a quiet lie.
Track Name: Want Some
WANT SOME

It all began with a ransom
for a hope and a dream
everybody got down on their knees.

Then we tried to reason
but ended up in the street
dying in a bar up on Eighteenth.

I really want some, I really want some time.
I really want some, I really want some time to get it right.

It all began with effusion
but ended up in defeat
at the burning end of the needle’s teeth.

You got to sway to fall down
you got to sleep to dream
you got to get denied before you get free.

I really want some, I really want some time.
I really want some, I really want some time to get it right.

—to make things right,
to know that I did all I tried
to make things right
before my times goes.
