Track Name: Into the Darkness - live 2010
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: Anxiety - live 2010
"Anxiety" - lyrics by Eldon McGraw

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: Sky Girl - live 2010
"Sky Girl" lyrics by Mike Anderson

She was just a little girl
Her parent's little pet
She had some dreams and seen some thing
That most people forget

The illusions that were real
They never left her eyes
She never learned not to believe
Or take a mortal guise

A man, he looked down right on her
She gazed up right back
He had tried to take from her
What he himself did lack

He said, "I'm gonna break your spirit"
She said, "You talk too much"
"How the hell can you break
what you can't even touch"

Just watch me spread my wings
And make love to the sky
While you stumble round on the ground
And very slowly die
Track Name: Way Out Brother/Train - live 2010
"Way Out Brother/Train" - lyrics by Randy Matthews

Give me a road and I'll take it home
Some place I'd rather be
Give me some space to sit in my place
It's better than wait and see

Give me some time to make up my mind
I know with time I'll eventually find

My way-out brother
From another
Way-out brother
Who's your father?

Give some rope and I'll hold out hope
Spacemen will come for me
God of the sky - it isn't a lie
Jesus was there to see

Stick to your guns and we'll all be suns
Of the graces left you and me

From the way-out brother
From another
Way-out Brother
From the Mother ship

Well, the train keeps a rollin'
Keeps a rollin' round the bend
And your life keeps a goin'
Keeps a going' til the end
So don't justify ad existence that's a lie - Oh yeah

Why do you think there's only one way out
I found a way- it's to yell and scream and shout
I don't want to be as rigid as a tree
Oh, God help me - I just want to be free

And the train keeps a rollin'
Keeps a rollin' round the bend
And your life keeps a goin'
Keeps a going' til the end
So don't justify ad existence that's a lie - Oh yeah

Why do you think there's only one way out
I found a way- it's to yell and scream and shout
Don't you go and tell me I got it all wrong
Look at our masses - see us get strong

And the train keeps a movin'
Keeps a movin' down the track
And your life keeps a movin like it's never coming back

And the train keeps a movin'
Keeps a moving down the rail
And your life keeps a movin' though its moving like a snail

So don't justify and existence that's a life - Oh yeah

Why do you think there's only one way out
I found a way- it's to yell and scream and shout
I don't want to be as rigid as a tree
Oh, God help me - I just want to be free
Track Name: Hey Baby - live 2010
"Hey Baby" lyrics by Eldon McGraw

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: Give God Your Money - live 2010
"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: Fool - live 2010
"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: Comin' at Your Face - live 2010
"Comin' at Your Face" - lyrics written by Eldon McGraw

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: I Gotta See Your Face - live 2010
"I Gotta See Your Face" - lyrics by Eldon McGraw and Bonnie 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
