Track Name: Fool
"Fool" - lyrics by Eldon McGraw

I saw the end many years ago
I didn't think it would come back
They say history will repeat itself
Man is that a fact

But I never thought I would see destruction
so many tattered lives here and there
Where are the all the signs of construction
Does anybody really care?

The end always seemed
so far away
A light in the distance
Always ready to fade

But I see right now
I have been fooled
Yeah I see right now
I have been fooled
I see right now I have been fooled
I see right now we have all been fooled

I saw my face in the mirror today
My head is not in the game
All I see on my tortured face
Is the plight of my pain

Whatever happened to
All of my hopes
Yeah and and all of my dreams
They took my peaceful soul from me
What happened to my being

The end always seemed
so far away
A light in the distance
Always ready to fade

But I see right now
I have been fooled
Yeah I see right now
I have been fooled
I see right now I have been fooled
I see right now we have all been fooled

I see it, I see it, I see it right now
I see it, I see it, I see it right now

But I see right now
I have been fooled
Yeah I see right now
I have been fooled
I see right now I have been fooled
I see right now we have all been fooled
Track Name: Hey Baby
"Hey Baby" lyrics by Eldon McGraw. BMI.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight

My baby left Detroit
And she aint comin back
I'm just here wastin away
With another six pack
She said she's goin home
To meet a friend from the past
She said to leave her alone
She's so sick of my crap

Hey baby, I can't leave you alone
Hey baby, pick up the phone
Hey baby, what do you want from me?
Hey baby, I don't want you to leave

Every woman has her wants
And every woman has her needs
My baby's like the rest
She's got desires to feed
She says that I'm stalking
Well that might be a fact
I just want her and me
To keep our lives intact

Hey baby, I can't leave you alone
Hey baby, pick up the phone
Hey baby, what do you want from me?
Hey baby, I don't want you to leave

Every man has his wants
And every man has his needs
I'm just a screwed up soul
With a woman I want to keep
My baby left New York
And she's comin back to me
Don't know if I want her know
What the hell is wrong with me?

Hey baby, I can't leave you alone
Hey baby, pick up the phone
Hey baby, what do you want from me?
Hey baby, I don't want you to leave

Hey baby
Hey baby
Hey baby
Hey baby
Track Name: Comin at Your Face
"Comin' at Your Face" - lyrics written by Eldon McGraw, BMI.

They said we never do it
Never count us out
We're like a pack of rabid dogs
Frothin at the mouth

We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face

The pain is always too much
When you're built like this
We're takin it all the way
With an iron fist

We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face

Detroit to the big time
They say we're not the same
Don't try to put us out
We're burnin like a flame

We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face

They said we never do it
Never count us out
We're like a pack of rabid dogs
Frothin at the mouth

We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
We're comin at your face
Track Name: My Misery Wants Company
"My Misery Wants Company" - lyrics by Eldon McGraw. BMI.

Come on down
have a drink with me
Let's take it to the bottom
Let's pound another magnum

Come on down
Have a hit with me
Let's take it to the sky
Let's set ourselves free

We've been the best of friends
For so many drunken years
It aint time to slow it down
Come on man have no fears

My misery wants company
Come on and have a drink with me
My misery wants company
Pour it down and set us free, I said yeah

Come on down
Roll the dice with me
Another hit or stand
Another spin of the wheel

Come on down
Have a smoke with me
Go ahead and let it go
You'll be safe with me

We've been the best of friends
For so many stoned out years
It aint time to slow it down
Come on man have no fears

My misery wants company
Have a hit with me
My misery wants company
Smoke it up and set us free

My misery wants company
My misery wants company
My misery wants company
My misery wants company

We've been the best of friends
We've been the best of friends
We've been the best of friends
We've been the best of friends
Track Name: Rock
"Rock" - lyrics by Jeff Behrendt. BMI.

Got our start on Detroit Street
A rag tag band that couldn't be beat
Wrote our own songs and played them too
Open mic nights and the fanbase grew

Let's rock
It's our time to rock
Let's rock
Let's turn back the clock
Let's rock
It's our time to rock
Let's rock
Let's turn back the clock

Wrote our own songs and we made the scene
Layed down the music in the studio dream
Photo shoot and the video
Take it all in and here we go

Let's rock
It's our time to rock
Let's rock
Let's turn back the clock
Let's rock
It's our time to rock
Let's rock
Let's turn back the clock

The years go by and it's plain to see
There something that's got to be
It's just got to be, it's got to be yeah yeah

Life adds up and the years move on
Twenty years later and here we are
Turn the page in the digital age
Classic rock chords and it's all the rage

Let's rock
It's our time to rock
Let's rock
Let's turn back the clock
Let's rock
It's our time to rock
Let's rock
Let's turn back the clock
Track Name: The One
"The One" - lyrics by Tommy Gomez. BMI.

I have to make it now baby
Cause if I don't I never will
I have to make it now my love
Before I am still

I need you
I need your love
I need to be, be the one

Who will follow these footsteps
That's what matter now
Not the pain I feel with each step
But who, who follows me now

I need you
I need your love
I need to be, be the one

A time will come when I can't feel
A day when those who follow will reel
On that day I need you
On that I need you
I need your love
I need to be the one

Please don't let me down now
You who follow, follow me around

I need you
I need your love
I need to be, be the one

I need you
I need your love
I need to be, be the one
Track Name: Anxiety
"Anxiety" - lyrics by Eldon McGraw. BMI.

When Ray Davies sang about the pressure
I didn't know what he meant
Now I'm getting so much older
I can feel his pain and torment

Panic and pain
Are my way of life
Stab me now
With a shiny new knife

Jack and Jim Beam
Don't get the job done
Tears are flowing
Gonna get my gun

A black cloud is over my head
Bullet in my brain, wish I was dead
Anxiety - prozac, xanax
Anxiety - I need to relax

Pushin to the limit
Is my way of life
Brain on overload
Nuthin to find

Sweats been pourin
All day and night
My nerves are shot
Nuthin seems right

A black cloud is over my head
bullet in my brain, cause I wish I was dead
Anxiety - prozac, xanax
Anxiety - I need to relax

Why can't I go back
To the good times in life
Why can't I go back
To a life without strife

Why oh why
Why oh why
Why oh why

Better to burn out
Than fade away
Just like Cobain
Do it his way

Or live like Neil Young
With passion and play
And live my life
To a ripe old age

A black cloud is over my head
Bullet in my brain, cause I wish I was dead
Anxiety - prozac, xanax
Anxiety - I need to relax

Anxiety
Anxiety
Anxiety
Anxiety

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Track Name: Shadow Play
"Shadow Play" - lyrics by Jeff Behrendt. BMI.

In the gloom of that dark room
I had no say to get away
We were called a team
It seemed like a dream
Take them all out
That's what it's all about
They were evil
They were wicked
Were on the right side
Now they can't seem to hide
Oh no

They gave the order
To take the border
I turn my head
I see the dead

Asleep or awake
It's more than I can take
Asleep or awake
It's more than I can take
Asleep or awake
It's more than I can take
Asleep or awake
It's more than I can take

We were called a team
It seemed like a dream
Take them all out
That's what it's all about
They were evil
They were wicked
Were on the right side
Now they can't seem to hide
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Track Name: She's Fire
"She's Fire" - lyrics by Jeff Behrendt. BMI.

Keeping this city hot
She's Fire
Heating up the whole damn block
She's Fire
Wish we could mess around
She's Fire
Burning me to the ground

When I hold her in my arms
Fireworks in all her charms
Trying to control the burn
Something that I'll never learn

She's Fire
Keeping this city hot
She's Fire
Heating up the whole damn block
She's Fire
Wish we could mess around
She's Fire
Burning me to the ground

Dancing while pretty natural at play
Molten movement can't stay away
Tinder box enjoy the pain
Standing in her burning flame

She's Fire
Keeping this city hot
She's Fire
Heating up the whole damn block
She's Fire
Wish we could mess around
She's Fire
Burning me to the ground

Lighting up the sky at night
Sparkler in broad daylight
Play with matches sure get burned
Lessons that I should have learned
