Track Name: Like It Really Is
Some want to tell it like it really is
Some want to hear it like it ought to be
Sometimes we talk it over
Sometimes we work it out
Sometimes we walk away not talking

A little bit crazy with some words you gotta be careful
Words move minds and mens minds are moving mountains
Don't call it the truth when it's just an opinion
Some words baby likely make you turn up missing

But I can't give ya what I ain’t got
And sorry seems to count for not a lot
But you can see As for you and me
Can’t get to 4 5 6 before we figure out the 1 2 3

Right on baby, make em think twice about it
Right on baby, hit 'em where they really live
If I know what you're saying
If you know who you're talking to
Good luck baby you never gonna know who's listening

On the Tv. It's black and white
Both sides sell a story and they came to fight
But Im not bleeding for what I don't believe in
So don't call me out unless you know what I'm about within

Some want to HEAR it like it really is
Some want to TELL it like it ought to be (yeah)
Sometimes we talk it over
Sometimes we work it out
Sometimes we walk away not talking
Track Name: I Know How
What I’ve got to say this evening
Has probably been said before
I'm in tune with all my demons
You can listen or just hit the door
All my lines are baited and down
And I’m waiting for just one to bend
Even then I’ll keep on doing what I do
But I will not pretend

And I'll do this thing the only way that I know how
Unapologetically baby how you like me now?

She's watching the movie big-shot carpet
Then she's looking over here at me
And she can tell I'm somewhat coarser
Than the shiny fellas on TV
But I don't need a wing-ding jacket
With a dollar sign on my lapel
Just gimme Goodwill jeans and a tee-shirt
And I'll show you how to wear it well

And I'll do this thing the only way that I know how
Unapologetically baby how you like me now?

But I never mean nobody no harm
Hell I'm trying just to get along
A little better than yesterday
If I like it then you know I'll stay

And I'll do this thing the only way that I know how
Unapologetically baby how you like me now?
Track Name: Loaded Gun
I was born in the land of the loaded gun
Of the loaded gun of the loaded gun
You get a pistol for protection and you shoot it for fun
But there's been plenty trouble here oh lord

I was raised to believe you gotta take it on the chin
You gotta take it on the chin Take it on the chin
And if you're starting a fight you'd better know you can win but
We've been losing ever since oh lord

Everybody got excited bout the hope and change
But we're standing at the wrong end of the rifle range
The lobby's got the number of the boys on the hill
That's why we're never ever passing a bill

Now we tell our sons and daughters don't you talk to strangers
Don't you talk to strangers Don't you talk to strangers
In the land of the armed and the home of the dangerous
You keep to yourself for sure

Everybody knows it's a natural fact that
You can't be thinking forward if you gotta watch your back
Don't matter the statistics at the end of the day
Nobody ever gets one over on the NRA

I was born in the land of the loaded gun
Where we shoot for fun come and get you some
When it comes to pulling triggers yeah we're second to none
And there's plenty trouble here oh lord oh lord
When it comes to pulling triggers yeah we're second to none
And there's plenty trouble here oh lord
Track Name: Stranger
My memories are of a stranger
Someone who is no longer me
A pawn of an unforeseen arranger
A boat adrift upon the sea

I know that phase is just a rhythm
The in between lines i sing alone
But I'm feeling underestimated
The longer that I remain unknown

Spare me the answer man
In spite of the best laid plans
The everything I was going to be

Living suspense is so demanding
With no one behind to watch the gate
Becoming aware of shallow breathing
Begging the blood to circulate

I'm taking in too much information
I am distracted all the time
I say to you now what I've been feeling
Regardless of reason or the rhyme

Spare me the answer man
In spite of the best laid plans
The everything I was going to be

This is an all night stand
Inescapable one man band
The everything I was going to be
Track Name: Icarus
It's not looking good lord I think this is it
Got that sick sinking feeling when the last something hit
And through all the smoke around me I hear
Terrified people screaming in fear

All circuits went dead as I tried my last call
So I begged god to tell her I love her that's all
Now up on this ledge I gasp for my breath
This high up there's no rescue just waiting for death

The windows on the world weep with debris
Two symbols of freedom burn in effigy
In this panic a peace as I stare down below
Like an angel of mercy I suddenly know

Every question, every action my life was about
My choice is now choosing how will I go out
And how would you judge me who are not in my place
As a leap to my death or a last leap of faith?

With the flames rushing toward me staring death in the eye
I make my final decision not to burn, but to fly
Track Name: Sanctuary
Recognize my face I don’t even think I can today
Resurrect my name Maybe for tomorrow
Cause I’m so very tired
Listen to the Rain

With nothing left to hide Are we at last divided
Thank you for the Sanctuary
It wasn’t meant to be and now it’s up to me
To find myself some Sanctuary

If it weren’t so bad I could never leave what’s good behind
So this is what they mean to hit rock bottom
And start to rise again
And without certainty of my sanity I lock this door behind me
This is what I mean I have found a way out
Cause I’m so very tired
Listen to the Rain

With nothing but my pride then from the other side I’ll
Thank you for the Sanctuary
Time has let me know that time has come to go
Find myself some Sanctuary

And if anything then I know what you’re thinking
But if you take me then it won’t be by surprise
A word that means forever
And I reclaim my life
For worse or for the better

With nothing left to hide are we at last divided
Thank you for the Sanctuary
It wasn’t meant to be And now it’s up to me
To find myself some Sanctuary
If faith and love abide then from the other side I’ll
Thank you for the Sanctuary
Time has let me know that time has come to go
And find myself some Sanctuary
With nothing but my pride and from the other side I’ll
Thank you for the Sanctuary
Time has let me know that time has come to go
And find myself some Sanctuary
