Track Name: Livin' and Lovin' On
"Livin' and Lovin' On" lyrics by Eldon McGraw

I'm just boppin along singin my same old song
And I've got nowhere to go
Tainted words and faded hopes
Long lost dreams and dried out smokes
I hope I've gone too far driving in my car
Maybe baby I'll see ya soon

Well I'm feeling so good

Livin and lovin on we just keep on
Livin and lovin
Livin and lovin on we just keep on
Livin and lovin on

Evening gold is fading fast
I've gone too far I hope I last
Aint on no free ride no ticket to fame
This aint gonna be no life without pain
Time's gone by right through my soul
Don't ever leave my side baby please don't go

Well I'm feeling so good
Livin and lovin on we just keep on
Livin and lovin on
Livin and lovin on we just keep on

Well I saw the light come into our room
It bounced off the walls left a beautiful view
On a moonlit night you came into my arms
You swore to me there would be no harm
Drifting through a long lost haze
Temperature is on the rise
I hope I make it to you soon
Cause our love won't be denied

Well I'm feeling so good
Livin and lovin on
Livin and lovin on we just keep on
Livin and lovin on
Livin and lovin on we just keep on
Track Name: Believe It
"Believe It" lyrics by Eldon McGraw.

Jesus Christ I can't believe it
Is my mind in tune or bleeding
I can't hear the drums
But I think they're beating
The color of that sound
Is very deceiving
I just hope, I hope that I won't be needed

Whoa whoa whoa what do I hear
Whoa whoa whoa I can't believe it

The beat keeps getting stronger
And the heat won't come to an end
And I'm just standin around
Cause I don't know where to begin
Just one more crack in that smile
Might make me go insane
The future's so uncertain
Except for a little pain

Whoa whoa whoa what do I hear
Whoa whoa whoa I can't believe it

Jesus Christ I can't believe it
Is my mind in tune or bleeding
I can't hear the drums
But I think they're beating
The color of the sound
Is very deceiving
I just hope, I hope that I won't be needed

Whoa whoa whoa what do I hear
Whoa whoa whoa what do I see
Whoa whoa whoa I can't believe it
Whoa whoa whoa I cn't belive it
Track Name: Nobody Like You
Lyrics by Randy Matthews. BMI.

Once I thought life might be fair
That everyone could have their share
That simple songs would fill the air
And make a difference everywhere

Then through the haze I caught a glimpse of you

There's nobody like you and there's nobody still
Once I had found you I knew I could kill
You sent me out there though I had my fill

Now the time has come and past
I want you still but it can't last
You want it hard, you want it all
But through your eyes I see my fall

But still amazed I got my sights on you

What can I tell you? What can I say?
I want your power almost every day
You sent me out there - I wanted to stay

Giving up is all a dream
To make it work you have to team
Heaven and Hell aint what it seems
Riding down that one way scree

But then again I take my shots on you

There's nobody like you and there's nobody still
You had me fiending, now you're making me me ill
It would have been better if you came in a pill
I want your life and I need you still
I climbed that last mountain, now there's only a hill
You made me, now I'm wanting to kill
Why can't I leave you for some other thrill?
A thousand ways to make myself chill
Your price is too high to put on a bill

Now I think I've had my share
As my body fills the air
Life is but a stop and stare
Heaven's here, Hell's everywhere
Track Name: Give God Your Money
"Give God Your Money" lyrics by Mike Anderson

I used to praise him and his superstar
But after watching Sunday tube, I know just how things are
He don't want your praise, he don't want your love
He don't want obedience, God wants your bucks

Give God your money, he can't get enough
Cause up in heaven , things are kinda tough
Angels on welfare, they need a helping hand
Give God your money or you'll be damned

God's threatening preachers with certain doom
Hid extortion racket is a financial boom
Hey, you came through, his disciple didn't die
We all made a payment to the gangster in the sky

Give God your money or people will die
Give God your money - he's through being nice
Don't bother praying - write out a check
Give God your money or he'll wring some necks

It's corrupted leaders. It's corrupted kids.
It's corrupted everyone - that's what money did
The root of evil is a real vice
But I'm afraid the evil's won - it's corrupted Christ

Give God your money, don't be proud
Just stick it in an envelope and send it to the clouds
Don't know the address? Well, give that cash to me!
I'll see he gets it, I guarantee
Track Name: Land of Plenty
"Land of Plenty" lyrics by Eldon McGraw

There's a man workin hard
But his kid's got nuthin to eat
There's a politician there
But he's lying through his teeth

Temptation is on the rise
Workin for the power and greed
Reachin for the golden prize
Steppin on those who need

I'm losin my way
I'm losin my way
I'm losing my way in this land of plenty
I'm losing my way in this land of plenty

Clouds of darkness in the air
Gettin darker before they turn grey
The air keeps geting thicker
While they still have nuthin to say

Destruction comin face to face
Gaining at a faster pace
Walls of pain will remain
While margins are going insane

I'm losin my way
I'm losing my way
I'm losin my way in this land of plenty
I'm losin my way in this land of plenty

Salvation is not far away
At least that's what they tell ya
Hope is lost on all who pay
At least that's what they sell ya

The path they want us to take
Is separated by two means
Their takin us to the limit
And cuttin us to the lean

I'm losin my way
I'm losin my way
I'm losin my way in this land of plenty
I'm losin my way in this land of plenty

I'm losin my way

Salvation is not too far away
Hope is lost on those who pay

I'm losin my way
I'm losin my way
I'm losin my way in this land of plenty
I'm losin my way in this land of plenty

I'm losin my way
I'm losin my way
Track Name: Can't See the Light
"Can't See the Light" lyrics by Tommy Gomez

I know that we've been told that we can make it
All that we could do was fake a lie
They don't need to know what we've been through
As long as it's between just me and you

It seems as though we've been searchin through life
Reachin for something that we couldn't find
That's alright, baby that's alright
Can't find a dream unless you try

Baby my eyes, can't see the light
And all we do is fight
So let's just agree, to disagree
And all we've learned, may turn out right

I think we'll both miss a love we had
But as time pushes on, baby we'll both look back
Back on something, that's not what we think it is now

I helped you find your way, you helped me find mine
Now we're supossed to leave this world behind
But the question still remains
Can we ever really say goodbye

Baby my eyes, can't see the light
And all we do is fight
So let's just agree, to disagree
And all we've learned, may turn out right

Baby my eyes, can't see the light
And all we do is fight
So let's just agree, to disagree
And all we've learned, may turn out right

Can't see the light
Can't see the light
Track Name: Into the Darkness
Life's been goin so fast
A crash and burn that's not gonna last
I've felt it before but it's been a long time
The love I've lost is yours to find

I'm falling
Into the darkness
I'm falling
Into the darkness

Deep in a dark alley
There lies a child bleeding to death
There aint no hope in his eyes
Nuthin left but a little breath

He's falling
Into the darkness
He's falling
Into the darkness

When the truth leads man
From the pain of it all
He'll soon be off the edge
Returning to the wailing wall

We'll be falling
Into the darkness
We'll be falling
Into the darkness

When the need for the greed of the GNP
Leads them to believe and succeed
With nothing to breed, you'll see

They'll be falling
Into the darkness
Track Name: World Keeps a Balance
"World Keeps a Balance" lyrics by Jeff Behrendt

The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents

Death comes packaged in shiny colors
Deprived of the choices that are made by others
Violence rages to the sound of money
People getting screwed and I think it’s funny

The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents

Covert struggle with plastic lovers
Habits stolen from the bed of others
Smiling harlots and it sounds like thunder
People fall in love when their six feet under

The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents

Piles of money when your in to win it
Lawyer up even if you did it
Grey brain matter and spoon-fed grool
Wartime profit gonna break the rules

The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
The world keeps a balance
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
With the slaughter of the innocents
Track Name: Can't Take It Much Longer
"Can't Take It Much Longer" lyrics by Eldon McGraw

We walk the streets crying freedom every one of us
The battles just begun with justice at then end
Fists in the air, guns pointed at our heads
We will not forget the faces of the dead

We can't take it much longer
We can't take it much longer
Working hard to get through to you
But we can't take it much longer

Well just when you thought we were givin it all up
We came back at you with all that we had
And all that we had, well it's not enough
But all that we had is makin it tough
Can't take it much

Can't take it much longer
We can't take it much longer
Workin hard to get through to you
But we can't take it much longer

The sun will rise on every one of us
But the blood will rise with the falling of the dusk
They can run today but they won't hide forever
Beause the power of the people is driven by liberty
Freedom for the left, freedom for the right
Freedom for oppressed, freedom down the line

Well just you thought we were givin it all up
We came back at you with all that we had
And all that we had, well it's not enough
But all that we had is makin it tough
Can't take it much

Can't take it much longer
We can't take it much longer
Workin hard to get through you
But we can't take it much longer

In the beginning, it was too good to be true
What we always hoped for, well maybe it's through
But we won't forget, the sacrifices made
And we won't forget, the faces of the dead

The world won't forget, what we've done
And the world won't forget, what they've
Becuase the day will come, when your rule end
And the day will come, with justice at the end

We can't take it much longer
We can't take it much longer
We can't take it much longer
We can't take it much longer

Track Name: I Wanna...
"I Wanna..." lyrics by Mike Anderson. BMI.

A big loud amp and a screaming guitar
can carry me, carry me so so far
Beat a bass and smash the drums
Gonna do it til the morning comes
Gonna wake up the whole damn black

I wanna rock
I want some drugs

A lung full of smoke and a nose full of coke
can keep me happy but always broke
I'm in the gutter and I touch the sky
I'm oh so low but I'm usually high
So my system is full of bugs

I want some drugs
I want some sex

Ain't a better sight in the world
then the walk and the stance of a pretty girl
But looking ain't enough, I gotta have her stuff
If she ain't gonna give in I'm gonna get rough
Oh, my life is so triple X

I want some sex
I wanna kill

Got me a knife, got me a gun
Now it's time to go out and have some fun
If you don't find blood a pretty sight
well, close your eyes, it will flow tonight
The cops will tell me when I've had my fill

I wanna kill
Track Name: I Gotta See Your Face
"I Gotta See Your Face" - lyrics by Eldon McGraw

I'm drivin down the lost freeway of souls
Pressure gettin stronger like you've never know
I've got one thing pushin me
Faster than I can go
I hope you're waiting for me
At the end of this long road

I gotta see your face
I gotta see your face

The pain of your past still shows in your face
Your infectious smile is gone today
Your situation is lost, your glory is gone
But nuthin can stop me from this path I'm on

I gotta see your face
I gotta see your face

Your reasons for living are different today
Your in control of your life
Nuthin can stop you cause there's passion in your play
Well go ahead and fight

I yeah I gotta see your face
I yeah I gotta see your face

Well now you're happy but you always want more
So go ahead and take it
I'm gonna fight right through your arms holded tight
Don't you mistake it

I yeah I gotta see your face
I yeah I gotta see your face
