Track Name: She's On Fire
Revised Lyrics
by James 'FastStrings' Freed
and William 'Hardway' Miller

She Is On Fire!

Lucy's sitting at home
He left her here alone
Like an animal in a cage
She's no longer tired
And now she's in a rage
She's On Fire

She sits by the phone
In a black dress,
by the fireplace
Under the light,
she not alright
There's madness on her face

(Chorus)
This lovely lady
A blazing flame
and who's to blame
for all her pain
She's on Fire
She's on Fire
This isn't love
She's lost in Flames!!


She is pissed at Randal
He isn't here tonight
This pain she can't handle
Now she's wants to fight
He'll pay for this stunt
She's on a manhunt

She finds him in a club
Dancing with a strange chick
He pretends to be a stud
She's wise to his games
She calls him by his name
Hey there Mr. Slick!

(Chorus)
This lovely lady
A blazing flame
and who's to blame
for all her pain
She's on Fire
She's on Fire
This isn't love
She's lost in Flames!!

She slaps the girls face
Pours beer down his shirt
And kicks him where it hurts
People get out of her way
Don't mess with her today
She walks out of the place

She jumps in her car
And sees his old picture
on the sunvisor
As she leaves that bar
She throws it out the window
And drives over it slow
Wishing it was him
under the tires
She is on Fire


(Chorus)
This lovely lady
A blazing flame
and who's to blame
for all her pain
She's on Fire
She's on Fire
This isn't love
She's lost in Flames!!
Track Name: So Many Years
Lyrics:
by NandooMessany

I´ve been looking for several places.
Going nowhere, going nowhere.
And I´ve been waiting a while.
Just a tiny little smile.
And now I´m going through pain.
Going through it, going through it.

So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, so many ways.
It has been such a mile.
So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, in so many ways.
It has been such a mile.



So many years,
I´ve been trying to complain.
Saying nothing, saying nothing.
And I´ve been trying to win.



Just a tiny little sign.
And now I´m going through pain.
Why don´t she cry? Why don´t she cry?

So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, so many ways.
It has been such a mile.
So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, so many ways.
It has been such a mile.

I tried to take the loneliness.
It wears me out.
And I tried to hide.
For just a tiny little while.
And now I´m going through pain.
Going through it, going through it.

So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, so many ways.
It has been such a mile.
So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, so many ways.

And I am wondering why,
I am wondering how
it could be.
That I was so blind.
Now I´m going though pain.
I'm going through it, going through it.

So many years, so many days.
It has been quite a while.
So many tears, in so many ways.
It has been such a mile.
So many years, so many days.
It's been quite a while.
So many years, so many ways.
It's been such a mile.



So many years...



So many years...
Track Name: Ghost Lady of the Lake
Lyrics by James 'FastStrings' Freed

Ghost Lady of The Lake

The rain is coming down
And the road is very slick
Lisa is thinking about a bad hurt
Her fiance left her in a lurch
And now She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of the Lake!

Her steering wheel does a trick
She spins around on the ground
She has just lost control
She runs over a glass bottle
Her car begins to roll
and She's hitting on it
at full throttle
She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of The Lake

She's made a crucial mistake
Her oil light's still on
Her dad didn't fix the brakes
Very soon Lisa will be gone
She's flying over the water
Unconscious and dead
A father has lost his daughter
Something he'll always dread
Now She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of The Lake

Her life was at stake
When she hit the ground
It sounded like an earthquake
now It's quiet as before,
there isn't any sound
She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of The Lake

She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of The Lake


(followed by Hardway Improv!!)

(Hardway's Improv!)

If you should come
around late at night
When clouds are forming
and the moon is bright
you might see her
walking around out there
With sad, lonely eyes
and a far away stare
She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of the Lake

She's the Ghost Lady
Ghost Lady of the Lake
Track Name: The Cruncher
The Cruncher
Lyrics by Jimmy 'FastStrings' Freed

His plate is very greasy
Covered in sauce and dressing
Flavored in urbs and spices
Cooking the woman he slices
He slices down to pieces of cubes
She tried to run in the nude
He catches her now she suffers
The Cruncher

By the hands of a machine
A man who is worse than mean
She can't escape the hunter
If he doesn't kill her
He will just kill another

He is the hunter
The big bad hunter
That uses hand made weapons
For his night duties and his lessons
He likes to be the punisher
He's already making things bloodier
Catching his pray in the woods
Behind the back of his house
Where he only feels safer
The Cruncher

He's invisible to the naked eye
He's slithers more than a snake
He is much faster than a fly
When he performs his get away
The police he is tougher
It's so hard to find the stalker
The Cruncher

His plate is very greasy
Covered in sauce and dressing
Flavored in urbs and spices
Cooking the woman he slices
He slices down to pieces of cubes
She tried to run in the nude
He catches her now she suffers
The Cruncher

Track Name: Life Ain't Easy
Life Ain't Easy
Lyrics and Vocals by William 'Hardway' Miller
Instruments by AJM

On a dark and lonely street
in the bad part
of town
they're searching for a man
who can't be found.

And no one
really cares
that he isn't there
he's simply
not around.

Life Ain't Easy
you know
Life Ain't Fair
Does anybody really care!

I could tell you the story
Does it really matter
how a life is shattered.
Lena's alone now
Mom is somewhere else
leaving her alone
waiting there
by the
phone

Life Ain't Easy
you know
Life Ain't Fair
but Does anyone really care!

He left his job
he finally screams.
looking for
someone
to share his dreams.

But no one out there
really cares
the strange looks
the ugly stares

He vanished one day
I'll tell you why
He wanted something
.....
a reason not to cry.

Life Ain't Easy
you know
Life Ain't Fair
Life Ain't Easy
you know

Does anybody really care!

Does anybody really care!

Life Ain't Easy...
Track Name: Nothing to Lose!
Nothing to Lose!
Lyrics and Vocal Arrangement
by William 'Hardway' Miller

Brother David was shot in the head
A jealous friend made sure he was dead.
I caught the man out hitting the bars one night.
No one was looking - so I shot his ass twice!

I've done lots of drugs, I've drank lots of booze.
I've done many bad things, I got nothing to lose!

Mother dear, why do you stare.
Out the window, there's nothing there.
She said, "My son, you keep me up nights.
I should be sleeping!!"

I've done lots of drugs, I've drank lots of booze.
I've done many bad things, I got nothing to lose!

They took my dad to the insane asylum.
He couldn't cope with the pressures of life.
Now he's locked up in that padded room.
It don't seem right!!

Mother dear, why do you stare.
Out the window, there's nothing there.
She said, "My son, you keep me up nights.

I've done lots of drugs, I've drank lots of booze.
I've done many bad things, I got nothing to lose!
Track Name: I Won't Let It Get Me Down
Lyrics by Jay06 of v-band.de

It plays on my mind
I get left behind
Maybe its too late
Now I'm in a state
With a job to find

I mustn't give up

I won't let it get me down
Maybe I should leave this town
I won't let it get me down
This can't bring me down, down, down

The sun shines on me
I feel lucky
I'm acting so strange
Now its time to change
Gotta be happy

I mustn't give up

I won't let it get me down
Maybe I should leave this town
I won't let it get me down
This can't bring me down, down, down

Won't let it get me down
Won't let it get me down
Won't let it get me down
No, no, no
Won't let it get me down
Won't let it get me down
Won't let it get me down
No, no, no
Won't let it get me down
Track Name: Slipping Away
Slipping Away
Lyrics by Jimmy 'FastStrings' Freed

Oh the lights shine so very bright

I see her below the stars on the balcony where I first seen her

She steps through the door and looks my way

Even though she may not see me I see her

I wish I can see her night and day now I just see her

Slipping away

I can show her the city in a different way

She allowed herself to trust me even the way I look

And her hand I slowly took and we walked through the city

Until I see the sun come up today and the night

Slipping away

Oh I remember seeing her from a distance

Like a hundred yards away and she is

Slipping away

The first night we walked together

How I wanted this night to last forever

I know it can never, never happen on this day she is

Slipping away

Chorus

Yeah she is slipping away

I can't do anything to stop that

Not tonight or tomorrow I feel such such sweet sorrow

I just wish she stay but she is

Slipping away

Additional Lyrics Improv by Hardway Miller with minor changes and repeats!!
Track Name: Back Home
Back Home
Lyrics by William 'Hardway' Miller
Copyright February 2013

I've been to Greece, and I've been to Spain.
But I just want to go back home again.
I've got me a woman, waiting there.
With real home cooking, and a bed to share.

Chorus
Back Home, I need to be..
Back Home, I just want to see..
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home

The Spanish girls, they treat me right.
As long as I'm buying the drinks all night.
The Greeks don't understand a word I say
I should have stayed home, anyway.

Chorus
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, Back Home

In Naples I met an ugly whore,
She offer me twenty, but I wanted more.
I've been too long, drinking rot-gut beer.
I need to get the hell away from here.

Chorus
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home

I've been to Egypt, I've been to Tel Aviv.
I've got lot of babies, that look like me.
But the best pussy, that I've ever had.
Is my loving wife, I know I'm bad.

Chorus
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home

Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..

It's been a long time, since I've seen my wife
I wonder if she stays home at night.
The kids won't know me, if I don't come home.
So I'll call em up, if I can find a phone!!


Chorus
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home

Chorus
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, Back Home..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, I need to see..
Back Home, I just want to be..
Back Home, I need to see
Back Home, I just want to be
Back Home, I need to be..
Back Home, I just want to see
Back Home, That's where I belong.
Back Home, I need to see
Back Home, I just want to be
Back Home, Back Home...

I did some improv during the recording session but those are the basic lyrics with minor changes
Track Name: Better Days
Better Days!
Lyrics by Hardway Miller

Life is like a minefield
planted in our path
In childhood there's
just a few
The little problems
which are new
In adolescence more
are added
Drugs, Sex, and Guns!
Which can sometimes be
lots of fun!
But there's danger here
So think carefully
of life's hazard
And the horrors
we all should fear

As time goes forward
The field is littered
With much more danger
And things most bitter
The chance of blowing
yourself up grows
Ever closer to ending
the precious things
That you love and know
You're caught in the Game
and cannot fight
Against the pull
that catches you
and drags you screaming
into the darkest night!

(Chorus)
You're caught in the Game
and cannot fight
Against the pull
that catches you
and drags you screaming
into the darkest night!
And your life just ends
with no one around
To show the way
to better days!


Until at last
there's no ground
on which to stand
Safe from harm
in a dangerous land
And your life gets
Blown to Hell
and as you die
you hear the bell
Which tows sadly of
the joys you've lost
The stupid actions
done at great cost.
And your life just ends
with no one around
To show the way
to better days!

You've lost the way
my lonely friend
You're nothing really
in the way of things
and reality escapes you
with the senseless
idiocy that you bring
And the pain you cause
will never be
the cure you seek
the gain you lost
The pain you cost
It's all nothing
And you lie there alone
with no one around
to show you the way
to better days!

(Chorus)
You're caught in the Game
and cannot fight
Against the pull
that catches you
and drags you screaming
into the darkest night!
And you lie there alone
with no one around
To show the way
to better days!

(Chorus)
You're caught in the Game
and cannot fight
Against the pull
that catches you
and drags you screaming
into the darkest night!
And you lie there alone
with no one around
To show the way
to better days!

Better days!
Better days!
Track Name: Come and Get Me!!
Come And Get Me
Lyrics by James 'FastStrings' Freed
----------------------------------------------

Intro Improv by Hardway!!

You had me once before now I am free!
I am so far away long as the eye can see
I don't care if you are looking for me I know where to hide
Then I will be behind you and you won't see me
Give it your best shot
Come and get me!

I am a pro at running I am one step ahead of you
There is just nothing you can do to stop me
You can't even stop me to breath

Give it your best shot
Come and get me!

I think I just passed you or was that my shadow
I might as well be chasing myself your slow as hell
Just grip the wheel and hold on to your seat
And hold on to your life cause here I come
We will play a little game of chicken run
Oh this is gona be a wild ride
The faster you go your heart is pounding on the inside
I am moving so fast my eyes just bleed
Give it your best shot
Come and get me

Hardway does further improv on vocals!!
Track Name: Jenny I'm Talking to You
I did the song using the lyrics below, but also added some repeats and improv vocals!



JENNY, I'M TALKING TO YOU

Lyrics by James 'FastStrings' Freed



JENNY I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY

IT'S GOING TO TAKE ME AWHILE

CAUSE' IT'S GOING TO BE LONG



I CAN'T HAVE IT ON THE B SIDE

(CHORUS)

JENNY I'M TALKING TO YOU

I CAN'T SAY IT IN A COUPLE OF SONGS

JUST MY DESIRES AND MY WANTS



I KNOW YOU GOT AN OPEN MIND

SEEING WHAT I WROTE TONIGHT



I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU

YOU ARE THE BEST WOMAN I EVER KNEW

AND THIS IS ALL I KNOW TO DO



(CHORUS)

JENNY I'M TALKING TO YOU

I CAN'T SAY IT IN A COUPLE OF SONGS

JUST MY DESIRES AND MY WANTS
