Track Name: Revolution
I traveled the roads on my own
And passed the signs of cross and bones
I found a way when they said no
You’ve got to take control, you’ve got to take control

Start a revolution
Write your constitution
Take control, take control, take control

You decide what’s best for you and only you
No other should control you
Not even a system of majority
It’s alright to question your authority

Start a revolution
Write your constitution
Take control, take control, take control

Control your destiny, pave your own road
Do what feels right, not what you’re told
But with no effort to make a change
There’s no right to complain
You’re to blame

Start a revolution
Write your constitution
Take control take control take control
Track Name: She's Gone
You’d always said one day you’d be leaving
I ever thought one day would ever be here
No one said it would be easy
I put a smile on just to cover my tears
‘Cause no one will love you like I love you
But I never told you these feelings before
So I lay my head low my hands turn cold
As I wave good-bye at your fading tail lights

At night I sleep restless I can’t take this
Much more pain I’m falling apart
No one to steal the sheets and share my dreams
When I’m left alone all in the dark
And I hope and pray to find another way
To make it through these lonely nights
Did I make a mistake not knowing what to say?
To keep you right here by my side

Cause I want to hold you and I want to kiss you
And I want to do some naughty things too
I’m begging you don’t go come back now don’t say no
I leave the lights on for you.

You’d always said one day you’d be leaving
I ever thought one day would ever be here
No one said it would be easy
I put a smile on just to cover my tears
And I hope and pray to find another way
To make it through these lonely nights
Did I make a mistake not knowing what to say?
To keep you right here by my side

Cause I want to hold you and I want to kiss you
And I want to do some naughty things too
I’m begging you don’t go come back now don’t say no
I leave the lights on for you.

She’s gone She’s gone She’s gone
She’s gone She’s gone She’s gone
Girl wont you come back? Won’t you come back? Won’t you come back?
Won’t you come back? Won’t you come back? Won’t you come?

She’s gone now I know I was wrong to let go until then now
The lights on for you
She’s gone now I know I was wrong to let go until then now
The lights on for you
Track Name: Sorry Excuse
Don’t lay your hands
I’m lying in bed
With my tenny shoes on
So I can run for help
‘Cause tonight it’s going down
He’s been drinking all day
He claims he can’t find any work
Like a time bomb set by the liquor
Somebody’s bound to get hurt
It starts off with name calls and cursing
He breaks her down with low self-esteem
Once the bottles empty things start to worsen
From the bedroom I can hear them both scream
Accusations about one cheating on the other
A sorry excuse for a man
Through the crack of the door I can see him
Smack her with the back of his hands (ooo yeah eee yeah eee yeah)

I hop out the back window
And I’m running just as fast as I can
To the payphone at the liquor store
So I can call the policeman
Operator, operator an emergency
Send me an ambulance
‘Cause my mom is getting beaten as I’m speaking
And I don’t know how much time she has

I run back to an eerie cold silence
As I walk through the door
I take a step and sadly notice
Momma lying on the kitchen floor
Face first still breathing badly beaten
As the blood drips straight from her chin
When I was running for some help he beat her with a dumbbell
The kind that you find at the gym

I wrap a towel around her head
And I hold her close in my lap
All around us is broken glass
And the sofa’s lying on its back
He returns as the cops show up
And they take his sorry ass to jail
She recovers with her stitches and forgives him
And she even helps post his bail

You’d think she would learn a little lesson
And decide that its time to move on
But when its time for subpoena she pretends that
There’s nobody home
He say’s he’s sorry for the trouble
The abuse in the past is all done
But I pay no attention cause he’s drinking
And I go to bed with my shoes on (ooo yeah eee yeah eee yeah)

Don’t lay your hands upon her
Don’t lay your hands
Don’t lay your hands upon her
It doesn’t make you more of a man
Don’t lay your hands upon her
Don’t lay your hands
Don’t lay your hands upon her
It doesn’t make you more of a man (ooo yeah eee yeah eee yeah)
Track Name: No Good Reason
So I’ve been thinking
About my heart that’s waiting
Just waiting to find a place
And I know you’re out there
Just waiting to be found
I just want to see your face
Will your eyes be blue like the color of the sea?
Or brown like the leaves that fall from the tree?
Will you love me in the morning
Before I go to work?

I wanna hold I want to kiss
I wanna love I wanna squeeze you
And in the bedroom girl you know I’m gonna please you
I wanna hold I wanna to kiss I wanna to squeeze you
Eahhh eahhhh eahh eahhh yeah you

Too many days and too many nights
Too many days and too many nights
Too many days and too many nights
Too many days and too many nights
Is much too many times

(Too many days and too many nights)
(Too many days and too many nights)
Oh ooo ooh eah eah eah eah eahh eahh eah
(Too many days and too many nights)
(Too many days and too many nights)
Oh ooo ooh eah eah eah


And I know from yesterday
Most things aren’t here to stay
But with love we’ll find a way
To weather through the seasons
After our first meeting
I love a girl I’ve yet to meet
For what but no good reason
Will your smile be so bright
To light up my life?
Will your skin be soft when you clothes come off?
Will you love me in the morning
Before I go to work?

I wanna hold I wanna kiss
I wanna love I wanna squeeze you
And in the bedroom girl you know I’m gonna please you
I wanna hold I wanna kiss I wanna squeeze you
Eahhh eahhhh eahh eahhh yeah you


Too many days and too many nights
Too many days and too many nights
Too many days and too many nights
Too many days and too many nights
Without you by my side

(Too many days and too many nights)
(Too many days and too many nights)
Oh ooo ooh eah eah eah eah eahh eahh eah
(Too many days and too many nights)
(Too many days and too many nights)
Oh ooo ooh eah eah eah hmmm hmm hmm mmm
Track Name: The Heist
Pull the car around
Lets’ stick to the plan
We’ll get this money
We’ll get this money on our demand
Keep that motor running
With your open eyes
My black ski mask is my only disguise
See something strange
Your better give me a signal
As I go in this bank
With a loaded pistol
Keep those hands up ‘cause we’re robbing the place

Inside the bank
You know that I’m in charge
Destroy all the cameras
After I tie up the guards
No one moves or makes a sound
This is a stick up
I want everyone on the ground
Don’t make a move and you wont get hurt
Don’t play hero ‘cause it just won’t work
Keep your hands up ‘cause we’re robbing the place

Stick’em up, please listen to me (listen to me)
We mean no harm but we need to eat (all we want to do is eat)
Stick’em up, please listen to me (listen to me)
We mean no harm but we need to eat (all we want to do is eat)

The manager shouts
He says “now take it and leave”
Behind the counter
Where he’s waiting for me
Show me the vault, I said, now empty that safe
I want this money inside this pillowcase
But not that stash, don’t want a silent alarm
Don’t make me use this firearm
With the money in the bag
I make my escape
Through the alley down the fire escape
Track Name: Don't You Know
Girl you know I’ll always be there
Despite the rumors you hear
I’ll be by your side
And no one could ever break up
Despite what they make up
No river runs dry

When we met last spring I said it was a good day
I acted a little shy but nothing foolish
Your friends said don’t talk to me no no no because I’m no one
Little did they know of me boy they were wrong

Don’t you know?
Don’t you know? Said I really wont go
Don’t you know? I’m staying for the long haul
Don’t you know? Said I really wont go
Don’t you know? I’m staying for the long haul

And as I see your face my temperature will rise
And I can’t say the words good bye
We can make it work as long as you try
You and me will be alright

We couldn’t be apart no no no we couldn’t do it
I loved you from the start all I wanted was to prove it
Your dad said don’t talk to me no no no because I’m no one
He said the crush would be gone in a week
But he was wrong

Don’t you know?
Don’t you know? Said I really wont go
Don’t you know? I’m staying for the long haul
Don’t you know? Said I really wont go
Don’t you know? I’m staying for the long haul

And as I see your face my temperature will rise
And I can’t say the words good bye
We can make it work as long as you try
You and me will be alright
Track Name: Magdalena
She lost her soul
In a bar lounge
She shared her love
Throughout the whole town
The whiskey was warm
Like the sheets on her bed
But her heart was broken
When he, he got up and left
Oh oh girl

With too much pride to
To shed a tear
She finds her courage
In a, a pint of beer
So she loved
But loved for fun
Forgot to love
The important one

Oh girl
You’ve got to love yourself
Oh girl
You can’t trust no one else
Oh girl
You’ve got to love yourself
Oh girl
You can’t trust no one else

Now she’s a victim
And wants revenge
Switched from courage to hate
And now a, a bottle of gin
Can’t find herself
In life with him
So she hides
Behind religion oh oh girl

Stand up on your own
Dry your tears
(You’ve got to love yourself)
Oh oh girl
(Stand up on your own)

You can’t trust no one else
Oh oh girl
(Stand up on your own)
You’ve got to love yourself
Oh oh girl
(Stand up on your own)
You can’t trust no one else

One More Night
Track Name: One More Night
If this is the last time I see your face
I’ve got one request to make
Spend one more night with me
And I’ll be on my way
I won’t look back
Ill just leave my footsteps behind
They’re there to follow
If you should ever change your mind
But if your mind is made up
I’ll see my way
I’ll drag my heart this lonely lonley day
But if leaving me makes you feel so right
Promise me girl promise me one more night
Just one more night

One more night, one more dance
One more night, one more chance
One more night to think of, for the love
One more night, reminisce, one more night
One more kiss, one more night, make you sweat
One more night, leave you wet, leave you wet

Under the moon under the stars
I will take you so far
Make you remember my heart that’s tender
By an arrow scar
Cupid once struck with his bow
That made me want you girl from head down to your toes
Just one more night

One more night, one more dance
One more night, one more chance
One more night to think of, for the love
One more night, reminisce, one more night
One more kiss, one more night, make you sweat
One more night, leave you wet, leave you wet

Lets’ share a dance under the window
I won’t close my eyes until I go
And then the angels will sing another love song for you
But when the carousel stops, ill be gone

For the years we shared, one more night
And all the tears we bared, one more night
And all the bars we closed, one more night
And all the joints we smoked, one more night
Just one more night

One more night, one more dance
One more night, one more chance
One more night to think of, for the love
One more night, reminisce, one more night
One more kiss, one more night, make you sweat
One more night, leave you wet, leave you wet
One more night, one more dance
One more night, one more chance
One more night to think of, for the love
One more night, reminisce, one more night
One more kiss, one more night, make you sweat
One more night, leave you wet, leave you wet
leave you wet mmm mmm mmm mmm
Track Name: Garden of Daisies
You were my friend ‘till the end
So long ago
Tears and our fears held within
So no one would know
Time on the streets trying to eat
In a world that’s cold
No one got hurt at first
Till something went wrong

To fit in with the boys
With the big bank funds
Girls, the money and the toys
On top of the world
Grams turned to pounds and then came the guns
You said you would never would use
Did you ever stop to think someday
Someone would ever point one at you?

I wish I wouldn’t see you this way
In a garden of daisies
My teardrops fall like rain
On a garden of daisies
I wish I wouldn’t see you this way
In a garden of daisies
My teardrops fall like rain
On a garden of daisies

Now my hearts filled with sorrow
Since you’ve been taken away
No one’s promised tomorrow
So on my knees I pray
Every day, every day, every day, every day


I wish I wouldn’t see you this way
In a garden of daisies
My teardrops fall like rain
On a garden of daisies
I wish I wouldn’t see you this way
In a garden of daisies
My teardrops fall like rain
On a garden of daisies
Track Name: Long Time
How many rivers must I cross
To have you back in your arms again?
How much pain will it have to cost?
Quit breaking my heart this way
‘Cause I never wanted to let go
Girl you slipped right through my hands
I want to show you so much more
Doesn’t look like I’ll get the chance

Since you’ve left my mind seems broken
Need a little help to repair
It may not work but girl I was hoping
If you act like you used to care
Pretend to show me love
Pretend to be with me
I’d rather pretend than have nothing
We’ve traveled this far
You might as well stay
To find another so far away oh oh eah , so far away eah eah

I just don’t think I can do it again
I’m finding it hard just to be friends
‘Cause you were my girl all to myself
How long will it take to accept
You’re with someone else?

A long long time oh oh eah
Its gonna take a long long time oh oh eah

I just don’t think I can do it again
I’m finding it hard just to be friends
‘Cause you were my girl all to myself
How long will it take to accept
You’re with someone else?
Track Name: Little Black Dress
Girl I must say to you
Tonight you’re looking so good
And I see no more time for wasting no time debating
I think you feel the same way too
Look at the time it’s getting late but make no mistake
I’m not ready to let you go away (away) away (away) from me
So I got to say

I, I want to get you, I want to get you (get you)
Out of your dress
Oh your little black dress
I said I (I), I want to get you, I want to get you (get you)
Out of your dress
Oh that little black dress

Sorry if you think its wrong
But I just can’t help myself
For feeling the way I do
Yeah when I’m around you

When on the dance floor
Is when I start to lose control
With my hands up on your hips
And I’m kissing up on your lips
While I’m staring at your
So I got to say

I, I want to get you, I want to get you (get you)
Out of your dress
Oh your little black dress
I said I (I), I want to get you, I want to get you (get you)
Out of your dress
Oh that little black dress

Sorry if you think its wrong
But I just can’t help myself
For feeling the way I do
Oh when I’m around you

When on the dance floor
Is when I start to lose control
With my hands up on your hips
And I’m kissing up on your lips
And I’m staring at your
So I got to say yeah

I, I want to get you, I want to get you
Out of your dress
Oh your little black dress
I said I (I), I want to get you, I want to get you (get you)
Out of your dress
Oh your little black dress
Track Name: 1492
A long time ago in the town of Genoa
Came a merchant clerk and son of a weaver
Commissioned by Spain to return with gold
With 3 ships and 89 sailors
The routes to the east were controlled by the Turks
Who just conquered Constantinople
So they sailed to the west ‘cause the earth was round
To arrive in the east in a circle

October 12th, land was reached
Where they were greeted by friendly natives
Out of ignorance they called them Indians
‘Cause they thought that they’d arrived in Asia
The natives were Arawak from the island of Haiti
At the time called Hispaniola
With their olive skin and decorative hides
Around there ears hung gold ornaments

Poisoned with greed the men slaughtered the tribe
And took what little gold they had
The Santa Maria was wrecked
So they took her timbers
And supplies to build Fort Navidad
For the next 3 years the natives would mine
As slaves to the Europeans
A quota of gold earned you a token to wear
Without your token it would cost you your limbs

What are you willing to pay for progress?
Killing off another race for progress
What are you willing to pay for progress?
Killing off another race for progress

What are you willing to pay for progress?
Killing off another race for progress
What are you willing to pay for progress?
Killing off another race for progress eah eee eah eee eah
