What you doing in your head now? You got another thing coming if you think we're giving up on you now. What you doing on that ledge now? You got another thing coming if you think we're letting go of you now. Get you head out of the gutter. You got another thing coming, Take a look at all the stars out now. Why don't you take another breathe now. There's a million different colors, Black and white don't look so good on you now. And all the kings horses And all the kings men Couldn't score the shit To make you happy again And all the pretty horses Running down the hill Running as you're standing just standing still Yeah, they were running away.

when you go she said to him the time before you better believe i'll be waiting here for you and whatcha know like the sand along the waters edge you better believe this is something i will stand when you go waltzing like another dance again i can't believe facing wind without a sail but when you fall comes the timing to a halt again you better believe i got my eye on you and whatcha know like a rock against the water's ebb you better believe this is something we can stand when you call my name i'll be there just call my name i'll be there

i said i take and i take and i want it all i paint the town with a head that's dripping red i wanna take what i think what i feel is all right i wanna take what i see and i want it now you grew up getting all you want and you said you never had enough what you gotta say for yourself? say you wanna fight doesn't matter to me just another fucking frame of mind its just a flick of the hips get it started now a gamma ray, babe, galaxy burning out got a key, black magic and a haunted head gonna spin, spin, spin magnetic now frame of mind, oh frame of mind walking on a thousand swords walking to the farthest star in the sky we could leave this crazy world behind

Holdon 03:48
I'm looking for a new sensation Kinda tired of sucking this air Got about a million kinds of stimulation Got zero that I give a care I got limbs got fingers got twitching Got a spine and the whole affair I got a nervous system firing at random Got wings but not a single prayer But I will hold on They say its mind over matter, moderation But I haven't had a drink in years I got a freight train running off the tracks And the station's right between my ears Head is strong Will is weak Gotta strap me down tight to this seat Got a V12 850 double pumper holley And I'm not gonna stop until the city burns down
8.
Gravity 04:47
lately i have been lost in space spinning round a rock that bears your face why should i deny myself : a satalite why should i? i can feel the sun everytime you turn comets crash agaist me, yet you remain why should i ever change my mind even if my shape should change i can feel the sun everytime you turn

Old Bear 03:59
old bear was a good friend that much was clear as pine faithful like the seasons change was his and he was mine he started such a small thing all ears and toothy smile but from that acorn grew an oak up towards the sun, it shines whenever it got heavy and that line got tough to tow old bear made it lighter he'd say, come on, lets go
11.
no one knows what the future holds it could be living hell, it could be liquid gold you could turn the world upsidedown if you only knew what you've found the sun goes down, the day is done you could be in my arms, you could be on the run you could be drunk and high, you could be down and low look me in the eye and you will know you'll always have my heart as your home

Liquid Gold 05:52
when you come back you're gonna want to save it if you come back now you're gonna want to change it when you were young who could ever tell you no when they call back you're gonna want to say it if they call back now go ahead and say it like when you were young days like liquid gold taken now the years will take you down yeah don't hold back now if you wanna make it when you come back now you're gonna wanna save it
