Track Name: I Wish You
Whenever you're feeling lonely,
I wish you love.
Whenever you;re feeling low,
I wish you joy.
Whenever it's complicated,
I wish you faith.
Whenever you feel like giving up,
Iwish you hope.

When the writing's on the wall,
When it makes no sense at all,
Why we climb so high just to fall...

Don't look down,
There is a suprise for you...
All your light,
Is Shining through

When the writing's on the wall,
When it makes no sense at all,
Why we climb so high just to fall...

Whenever it's complicated,
I wish you hope.
Whenever you feel like giving up,
I wish you faith.
Whenver you're feeling low,
I wish you joy.
Whenever you're feeling lonely,
I wish you LOVE.
Track Name: Oh My
Oh My, Oh My,

You're on my mind,
It seems all the time.

You're in my head baby,
Please in my bed...
You must be tired from getting me fired up.

Oh Please, Oh Please,

Please Justify,
My spinning mind,
With some of your time.

You're in my head baby,
Please in my bed...
You must be tired from getting me fired up.
It can't just be baby little ol" me,
If you feel the same baby please same my name.
Track Name: Nothing Left to Lose 1
When there is nothing left to lose,
I can fly right if I choose.
You can buy but you can't wear my shoes,
I got nothing left to lose.

I'm heading home to lick my wounds,
And share with my family the news...
I put some miles on these here shoes,
No i got nothing left to lose

So I hopped a midnight train down the coast,
I'm still wrestling with your ghost.
I caught me a bad case of the blues,
When I had nothing left to lose.

Spinning circles in the sand,
Down came a guiding hand...
To show me the way i was confused,
When I had nothing left to lose

When there's nothing left to lose,
You can fly right if you choose.
Shame on me and shame on you,
When there's nothing left to lose.
Track Name: Magick Towne
Walked right in to the lion's den and,
Rescued the Princess.
Climpbed right inside the beehive to,
Taste your honeypie.

Suppose I'm a dreamer cuz,
here I go again...
Just playin pretend.
Buy the ticket take the ride,
This here dude abides.

One more night in Magick Towne,
Then I'm gonna burn it down.
It's your last chance for sweet romance,
So put on your fancy pants.

I hope you're a dreamer cuz,
here i go again...
Just playin pretend.
Buy the ticket take the ride,
This here dude abides.
Track Name: Please Don't You Please
I wonder where you go,
Whenever you're alone.
Have you had enough.
From the voices you keep locked up?

Oh and by the way,
I didn't get a chance to say...
That I miss you.

It happens everyday,
So please don't you please fade away.

I wonder where you are,
Who is now your brightest star?
I've had enough,
From the voices you keep locked up.

Oh and by the way,
I didn't get a chance to say...
I miss you.

It happens everday,
Please don't you please fade away,
fade away..
Track Name: Amp Sav
Get out of my way,
I'm a tornado.
Better watch what you say,
I can throw you in a black hole.

Here comes the flood,
My enemies razor.
I drained the blood from
The Amphetamine Saviour

Back in this town,
I shook the demons.
With my feet on the ground,
Now lucifer's seething.

Here comes the flood,
My enemies razor.
You drink the blood of,
The Amphetamine Saviour

So get out of my way,
I'm a tornado.
Track Name: Before You Die
I can't tell you,
Which way you should go but,
I can show you ,
The way to the road if you try...

You might find that you can fly.

So don't you drink the water,
Just because you're led.
You could always,
Spit it out instead.

Go on and try...
You might find that you can fly.
Before you die,
Go on and fly.

Before you die,
Go on and fly.
Track Name: Thief in the Night
Seven years spent wandering,
All the tears just kept comiing.
They just kept coming.

All the smiles,
All the rainbows...
Mostly hail and tornados
Mostly tornados

I was sick and tired of the way I was living,
With a head full of ghosts and belly full of demons.
A sideways smile and sticky fingers,
A smail town crook and Thief in the Night.

Washington didn't want me,
Oregon couldn't stand me.
California couldn't see me,
So i tried Colorado

But they were all sick and tired of the way i was living
With a head full of ghosts and belly full of demons.
A sideways smile and sticky fingers,
A small town crook and thief in the night.

Then one day when I woke up,
Seems I had lost the eye of the tiger.
So i threw up my hands,
And I just let go.
Track Name: Kneel to Fight
It's an ancient story,
One you already know.
It's locked inside you,
So c'mon and let it go.

So you've been dreaming,
Not sure which way to go.
It's like you're running,
Right for the show.

Hey Mama it's alright,
Even though they made me cry.
I know my heads messed up,
Now i have to kneel to fight.

Creeping and crawling,
Through your windows at night.
The vulcher's and vampires,
Try to steal the light.

Hey Mama it's alright,
Even though they made me cry.
I know my heads messed up,
Now I have to kneel to fight.

Hey Sister let it be,
We're building a mystery.
I know what i said was wrong,
Here's I'm sorry in a song.

Hey Papa don't think twice,
As soon as I get this right.
I know i'm coming up,
As long as I kneel to fight.
Track Name: Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye
Track Name: Nothing Left to Lose 2
When there is nothing left to lose,
I can fly right if I choose.
You can buy but you can't wear my shoes,
I got nothing left to lose.

I'm heading home to lick my wounds,
And share with my family the news...
I put some miles on these here shoes,
No i got nothing left to lose

So I hopped a midnight train down the coast,
I'm still wrestling with your ghost.
I caught me a bad case of the blues,
When I had nothing left to lose.

Spinning circles in the sand,
Down came a guiding hand...
To show me the way i was confused,
When I had nothing left to lose

When there's nothing left to lose,
You can fly right if you choose.
Shame on me and shame on you,
When there's nothing left to lose.
