Track Name: Bird of Prey
Lyrics:

The devil is a country where no one knows your name
A nation filled with pride where guns fence the rich land
They call me the angel, i hold death and peace in one hand
I see our bird of prey heading down with each passing day

Don’t circle away from me, don’t circle away

I remember my childhood, the night they crucified the sun
The moon was weeping at it’s feet, implored me never to run
I was too young then but i gave my word to the widow of the sky
Now that i’m old enough to die, cover my body in flowers and let them know my name

Don’t circle away from me, don’t circle away
Track Name: You're my City Inside
Lyrics:

What is it worth to hold the key to a kingdom?
i only got 2 hands and one’s for holding peace
I love passion and flames, not day to day lame
You’re my city inside but i am guilty of burning bridges

I’m Burning bridges between you and i

I sometimes lie and smile to keep your heart close by
I also tried and changed but only so much at a time
Cause i only got 2 hands and i can’t stand being a peaceful man
But this i’ll never say, the walls of the city can’t be trusted

I’m burning bridges between you and i

I am just a beast that marvels on keys
I can’t live in this city it’s much too crowded and i can’t breath
I want to be out of reach you know, i love you baby but i just can’t show
You’re my city inside but i won’t stop the fire
Track Name: Once too many
Lyrics:

Oh won’t you just take it back?
Cause it’s too soon to tell the world
Aren’t you scared? I mean i could hurt you
And i know you know i’ve hurted others before

Wait, wait, wait Can’t you wait?
Leave, leave, leave i should leave

My skin is thick from all that i remember
And i tell the world keep your hands to yourself
Are you deaf, dumb or what? I could never love again
Cause this heart of mine has been broken once too many a time

Wait, wait, wait Can’t you wait?
Leave, leave, leave i should leave

Don’t you ever think it’s over before it is
You started this love mess and now you’re stuck with my heart
Aren’t the wise kind of girl, now the whole world sees i’m blown apart
And this heart of mine will never forgive you
You better make it worth

Wait, wait, wait Can’t you wait?
Track Name: Blind Letters
Lyrics:

I have written a number of blind letters
I wrote them all in different languages for you to find
I’ve been stamping and sending my love for now 26 years
I feel i’m forever 26

I hope you won’t think i’m crazy but if you do just don’t say it
blinded by your hopes in search of love
And i’m deaf, illeterate anyway

After years of broken pen and inked sheets
When you finally find a pair of eyes that won’t shy
Away from your love don’t you stop writing then
Don’t you ever stop writing boys !

I hope you won’t think i’m crazy but if you do just don’t say it
blinded by your hopes in search of love
And i’m deaf, illeterate anyway

When you write your first letter my son just remember
To choose your words carefully cause sometimes you only need one
To make her find you through the noise and the billboards
Through all the other boys

I hope you won’t think i’m crazy but if you do just don’t say it
blinded by your hopes in search of love
And i’m deaf, illeterate anyway
Track Name: She Don't Want to be With You
Lyrics:

you’re loving a woman, she don’t want to be with you
what you gonna do boy, what you gonna do?

You can’t fall asleep on the cold hard floor
You’re used to drapping yourself in the warmth of her skin
But still you love every single moment even the cold hard swollen parts
If it’s her that gives, then it’s you that takes

Cause you’re loving a woman, she don’t want to be with you
what you gonna do boy, what you gonna do? I said!

How can you do it? How can you do it James? The name is Bond, james bond
You’ve been betrayed by the so many And the others tried to kill you in vain
You find it hard to smile lately, you find it hard to breath
You know it just, you know it just, you know it just won’t come easy

Cause you’re loving a woman, she don’t want to be with you
what you gonna do boy, what you gonna do? I said!
Track Name: Lost Bullet
Lyrics:

i Spent so many years wasting my breath
now i’m damn near out of air
i Spent so many years wasting my breath
speaking to someone who just couldn’t hear

we’re all born dirty but can’t always find
an angel who’s love could cleanse your doubts

we’re all born dirty but can’t always find
a love so strong it doesn’t fear losing it’s angel

oh lord won’t you get down here and help... me

i hate the devil but i distrust you at best
i speak for the people who died in their rest
i hate the devil but i distrust you at best
rest in peace all those who live without carrying your cross

oh lord won’t you get down here and help... me

now i pray for the last time as blood trickles down
couldn’t you even hear it’s sound? lost bullet, lost and found
now i pray for the last time as blood trickles down
tell my mother that there’s more to life than losing it’s angel

oh lord won’t you get down here and help... me
Track Name: Morning's End
Lyrics:

Draw your dreams under my feet
so i may walk within them
paint your skin over mine
and colour me til morning’s end

i woke up into the night
to start the day’s first fire
you can’t wiat all your life for the sun
to come illuminate your face

but with light comes shadows
and all you need to hide
don’t let your darkness deep inside
and draw yourself alive
Track Name: Streets of Life
Lyrics:

you’re in the streets of life like it or not it’s all you’ve got
you can wonder or worry, fear or care but sooner or later you’ll be out of there

who cares what you wanted to do, who you’ve wanted to become
cause all that matters in the long run is what you’ve done
seems like the world is filled with preachers and actor’s sons
all singing together : what a wonderful world

and i say : Love all those motherfuckers
Cheat on your loved ones, but don’t you get caught
Say thank you when you steal, always be nice
So thank you all for coming tonight

So when you’re in the streets of life
trying to figure out north from south and wrong from right
don’t you listen to that feeling in your bones life’s a dead end and then you’re gone
there’s other songs if you want to hold on to life

everybody’s got a theory about what you’re doing wrong
i say it’s your genes from your mother’s side son, they’re not that strong
now the only certainty in life, if you want to quote me on something here tonight
is the beatles are better than the rolling stones!

And i say : Love all those motherfuckers
Cheat on your loved ones, but don’t you get caught
Say thank you when you steal, always be nice
So thank you all for coming tonight
