Track Name: Somebody Said
Somebody Said

Somebody said that you're gonna go crazy
I said, I know somebody said
That you're gonna forget where you came from
Forget your feet had ever touched the ground

Somebody said that you blew all your money
I laughed, I knew somebody said
That you're gonna get more if you want it
It's always there for you to throw around

Chorus:
I don't care what you do in your spare time
I don't care what somebody said
I could tell that you weren't in your right mind
And you let it go straight to your head
And somebody said

Somebody said that you get what you pay for
I said, I know somebody said
You can't afford what you wait everyday for
The only things you own are what you've found

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: Sleeping With Demons
Sleeping With Demons

I looked to the dark side of the road
'Cos my eyes were aching from the light
I walked across that lonesome highway
Like stepping from the day into the night
I still wore my childhood dreams
Like someone else might wear a coat
My hands shoved deep into the pockets
My heart stuck way up in my throat
(Chorus)
And sure enough I found there what I came for
In the wind
And though I can't remember every detail
I think I'm sleeping with demons again
Sleeping with demons again

I had partaken of their pleasures
But that was in my younger days
And though temptation led me to salvation
We had never really parted ways
Their whispers always kept me thinking
Their promises were empty lies
A better man could see the baseless beauty
A lesser man...he never tries

Repeat Chorus

I can't give my heart to Jesus
'Cos it's been ripped right from my chest
A one-way ticket to damnation
To be cast off like all the rest

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: I Don't Want To Stay
I Don't Want To Stay

I don't want to say
I don't want to say what you're doing to me
I don't want to stay
'Cos babe I know you know that you're getting to me

Chorus:
I can't disguise what's happening before my eyes
I found out today
That I don't want to stay

I don't want to be
I don't want to be less than what I am
I don't want to hear
I don't want to hear about your other man
Baby, I don't want to know
Can't you see that it hurts me so ?
Baby look into my eyes
Then you'll see how a grown man cries

Repeat Chorus

I don't want to run
I don't want to run away is all I'm saying
'Cos I can't stand the pain
That looks to be the side effect of games you're playing
Baby, all I got to show
Is I can't stay knowing what I know
Baby, what's it gonna be ?
A case of him or just a dose of me ?

Repeat Chorus

Words & Music by Scott Sechman
Track Name: If You Give Me A Chance
If You Give Me A Chance

I've been unfaithful and I've been untrue
You suffered so bravely all that I put you through
Now that I've lost you I see what I've done
For the love of another I gave up The One

Chorus:
If you give me a chance I'll tell you I'm sorry
I'd keep any promise just to make up with you
I'd beg your forgiveness and do what I have to do
If you give me a chance to say "Babe, I love you"

You're right when you blame me for your misery
I was so selfish, my whole world was me
But you stood by my side through the longest of days
While I continued to hurt you in so many ways

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
How I've been longing to hear the love in your voice
To feel your sweet arms around me
I didn't give you much of a choice
But darling I know now what you mean to me

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: What's Up With That ?
What's Up With That ?

I guess I've hung too long and everybody knows
I couldn't see what should have been plain
I came on way too strong and I couldn't stop it growing
But we weren't to be
I've heard that again and again and again
Though I've looked
I can't find a way to stop loving you

Chorus:

What's up with that ?
I think I've tried everything
But still you don't love me'
I've played every card I've have up my sleeve
We made the connection, but forgot the affection
Here's a note of rejection
What's up with that ?

Maybe I've tried too hard to please and be pleasing
Maybe I wasn't myself and it's shown
Maybe I'm crying too soon, the milk is still spilling
But it's likely that I've always known what I've known
And though I'm crying the tears dry as soon as they leave my eyes

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: The Mission
The Mission

I don't believe you when you say that you love me
I do believe you just need someone around
Your agenda won't allow me to be me
Your only purpose is to keep me tied down
You've got to be the one with total control
With you I'm destined to a life on my knees
I try to stop you but you're still on a roll
I can't shoot straight when I'm just aiming to please

Chorus:
Just listen, this is the mission
Don't choose to accept it and you won't be around
Just listen, this is the mission
To get along I go along
And don't make a sound

There's got to be some kind of real time solution
One you can live with, one that I can endure
Stop trying to occupy the next revolution
If there's a master plan I'm not really sure
You're not the only power structure in town
There's plenty more out there who'll give me a try
I pound the flesh enough to bring you around
You're not so tough now that we stand eye to eye

Repeat Chorus

If I agree to these terms and conditions
I got my own peculiar needs to fulfill
If I submit to strip myself of position
I must insist that I get my time to kill
You've got to be the one with total control
With you I'm destined to a life on my knees
I try to stop you but you're still on a roll
I can't shoot straight when I'm just aiming to please

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: I Can't Find My Dreams
I Can't Find My Dreams


They took my home, Sealed my fate
All alone, Empty plate

I can't cry, Nobody hears

Why should I, Waste more tears ?

When nobody out there, Speaks for me

Nobody out there, Wants to see

That I can't find my dreams

I can't find my dreams

Went to war, Fought the fight

Held the lie, Held on with all of my might

I came home, I saw the game

Those that lead, They have no shame

Why don't they stand up,
And fight for me ?

Why don't they stand up,
And fight for me ?

'Cos I can't find my dreams

They took away my dreams
I don't occupy my dreams

I can't find my dreams

Where's the jobs ? Where's the hope ?

Where's the end ? Where's the end of this rope ?
The one percent, Without a heart

Millions more,
Playing the part


Why don't they stand up
And speak for me ?

Why don't they stand up
And fight for me ?

'Cos I can't find my dreams

I can't find my dreams

They've stolen all my dreams
I don't occupy my dreams

'Cos I can't find my dreams...
They've stolen all my dreams

I want to occupy my dreams

So fight for me

Fight for me...

Track Name: Bang Bang
Bang Bang
(Words and music by Sonny Bono)

Verse 1:
I was five and you were six
We rode on horses made of sticks
You wore black and I wore white
You would always win the fight

Chorus:
Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang...my baby shot me down

Verse 2:
Seasons came and changed the time
I grew up and called you mine
You would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

You were always young at heart
You would say we'd never part
I would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play ?

Verse 3:
Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
After echoes from a gun
We both vowed that we'd be one
Now you're gone I don't know why
Sometimes I even cry
You didn't even say goodbye
You didn't take the time to lie

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Verse 3

Track Name: Break My Heart, Too
Break My Heart, Too

I've been looking for a girl like you
Someone to love me the whole night through
Just when I think that I've found
The one that won't let me down
She goes and breaks my heart, too

Last night I was talking, talking with my best friend
He said he'd met a girl who's the living end
His description brought to mind the one I hope to find
But she'd probably break my heart, too

Bridge
I've got a heart full of tears to cry
Sometimes I just get so blue
It hurts so bad as each night goes by
Babe I' don't know what to do

So I keep searching, hoping that I'll be strong
And I'll keep praying that someone will come along
Until then, I'm Mr. Lonely and should I end up with you
You'd only break my heart, too

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Last Verse

Track Name: Love Gone Wrong
Love Gone Wrong

You're so naive and that's a fact
But you like to think you're so kicked back
You have a brain that you never use
Then you claim you've been abused
So let's call it quits it's been too long
Release your grip because there ain't no use in hanging on
When love's gone wrong

Your daddy's girl, you're Miss Regrets
Impressions last, no one forgets
In your head you think so small
No one can tell if you think at all
So let's call it quits it's been too long
Release your grip because there ain't no use in hanging on
When love's gone wrong

Track Name: Back To What Used To Be
Back To What Used To Be

When the smoke has cleared

And the battle is done 

When the ones we feared

Have turned and run 

We’ll head southward, homeward

Back to the Land of Lee 

Back to our future 

Back to what used to be

When the cannon has fired 

On the Northerner’s sons 

And we’ve avenged all the men 

That we lost at Bull Run 

We’ll go southbound 

To sure ground

To replant the dying tree 

Back to our future 

Back to what used to be

Bridge:
When we’re marching off 

Of this Gettysburg plain 

When the victory is finally ours

We will bury our brave

In the warm southern rain

In the soil under stars and bars

‘Cos if God’s on our side 

Like the general said 

We have nothing to fear 

We’ll live on when we’re dead 

And the guns we once fired

Heal the wounds that once bled 

We’ll go southbound

To our ground
Back to the Land of Lee 

We’ll go back to our future

Back to what used to be
