Track Name: Moonburn
MOONBURN song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

I been out in the moon too long
my face has burned bone white
my soul has been sold to the Tong
and I'm enslaved to the night

moonburn moonburn moonburn
I got moonburn
when will I ever listen
when will I ever learn
my momma told me not to stay
out in the beam too much
now I got the moonburn
fatal to the touch

my girl thinks I'm a zombie
but she's okay with that
as long as long as my hot tommy
can catch her big black cat

so call me lunaticker
I'm crazy as they come
I could do it quicker
depending on the sun

moonburn moonburn moonburn
I got moonburn
when will I ever listen
when will I ever learn
my momma told me not to stay
out in the beam too much
now I got the moonburn
fatal to the touch

Track Name: Snapshot
Snapshot Lyrics Draft

Written By Mike Mantecon

I want to take a snapshot
Of your soul
I want it to belong to me
Under my control

I want to take a snapshot
Of your heart
I want it to belong to me
When it falls apart

In the camera lens
You look so divine
In my world of pretend
You can be mine

I want to take a snapshot
Of your soul
I want it to belong to me
I want it to make me whole

Solo

I want to take a snapshot
Of your soul
I want it to belong to me
Under my control

In the camera lens
You look so unreal
In my world of pretend
Loving you is no big deal

I wish you were mine
Beyond the camera eye
I wish you were mine
Beyond this photo?s lie

I want to take a snapshot
Of your soul
I want it to belong to me
Under my control
Solo

I want to take a snapshot
Of your soul
I want it to belong to me
Under my control

I want to take a snapshot
Of your heart
I want it to belong to me
When it falls apart
Track Name: Just Realized
JUST REALIZED song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

I just realized who you really are
I just realized what you wanna do
I just realized what is in my heart
I just realized who is who

I thought all along that your secrets were yours
but I didn't know what your secrets were for
and now in your house when I open the doors
what I once guessed now I am sure

just realized
just realized
damn your soul
and damn your eyes
I shoulda known
but it was a surprise
I guess I just realized

too many miles in between here and there
it's no use to whine that it just isn't fair
either you care or you just don't care
but I won't be unaware

said you're in love but you were in disguise
mystery tramp but you won't compromise
said you were smart but so far you weren't wise
nothing but lies and more lies

just realized
just realized
damn your soul
and damn your eyes
I shoulda known
but it was a surprise
I guess I just realized

don't tell me no more stories
I've had enough of your fairy tales

Track Name: Short Fuse
SHORT FUSE song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

don't set me off
don't make me start
when steel meets the flint
some thing gonna spark

I gotta hit
the street after dark
you're gonna get bit
if you swim with the sharks

I gotta short fuse
I gotta short fuse
it shouldn't be news
that I gotta short fuse

it's doesn't take much
to make me blow
just wind me up
and watch me go

when I was a kid
and I went out to play
I got in trouble
almost every day

someone would say
something bout my mom
and in my head
it was like dropping a bomb

I gotta short fuse
I gotta short fuse
I gotta code
that makes me explode

don't tease me just please me
before the madness seize me
if the fire is fed
then I'm gonna see red

you mess with my woman
I'm gonna mess with your life
I gotta hard edge
like a samurai knife

but just like the hulk
I gotta say cool
cause I can't tolerate
jackasses and fools

I gotta short fuse
I gotta short fuse
if you are amused
you're gonna get bruised

I just can't abide
can't keep it inside
if you gotta laugh
I'm gonna tear you in half

Track Name: Say Hello
SAY HELLO song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

I was trying to shut the howling
of the whistle out of my sleep
trying to get back a memory
that was buried much to deep

taking the Night Owl for a ride
that ended at midnight
I only wanted to say hello
but it didn't come out right

hello hello hello
say hello hello
say hello hello
hello hello hello
say it

the Night Owl is the last train out
your only bona fide
the Night Owl is your final route
but you need a ticket to ride

I don't know the reason I'm coming back
but I didn't want you to wait
but I need you I want you I got to have
something more than hate

hello hello hello
say hello hello
say hello hello
hello hello hello
say it

I'm not a common outlaw
I'm not on the lam
I thought it could last forever
that's just the way I am

running down the mountain
flying on steel wheels
with the wind screaming in my dreams
and tumbling head over heels

I was under the simple delusion
of thinking that there was a door
that I could walk through whenever I want
because that's what a door is for

I made this mistake in belief
that I could have what I want
because you swore it was never true
and ghosts don't care who they haunt

hello hello hello
say hello hello
say hello hello
hello hello hello
say it

I once had a crystal clear vision
that somehow I could find a home
but here I am stuck on the road again
give a way a last a loved alone

there is an unknown number of wilderness
an unknown number of wild
and the only honest way to face
with the grace of a wondering child

the Night Owl is the last train out
your only bona fide
the Night Owl is your final route
but you need a ticket to ride

hello hello hello
say hello hello
say hello hello
hello hello hello
say it

Track Name: A Heartbeat Away
A Heartbeat Away by: B K Williamson © 8/31/2015

When I hit the bottom
I didn't even know it
So down an' forgotten
It was just another day

I was born in the fire but
I try not to show it
Walkin' on the high-wire searchin' for a better way
Yeah... searchin' for a better way

Chorus:
A better way, oh yeah
Create a better day, yeah, yeah It's only a heartbeat away
A heartbeat away, a heartbeat away
Lookin' out for number one
It's all that I can do
Out gettin' burned by the sun
Workin' my life away
Don't ask me to be the man to sweat an' pay your dues
But if you want to take my hand
I could share my heart today
Share my heart today

Chorus: =======
Track Name: It Don't Bother Me
IT DON'T BOTHER ME song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

tell me you gotta good bye
tell me you gotta fly
I aint holding you down
feel free to come back around

you said you wanted my heart
you shoulda said from the start
you can do what you please
but it don't bother me

it don't bother me
it don't bother me
be what you wanna be
it don't bother me
you oughta see what I see
all I want is to be
free free as I can be free
it don't bother me

we had us a good time
laughing loud aint a crime
acting proud is all right
so is dancing all night

we had ourselves lotsa fun
but when it's over it's done
and nobody oughta be hurt
nobody's heart in the dirt

it don't bother me
it don't bother me
be what you wanna be
it don't bother me
you oughta see what I see
all I want is to be
free free as I can be free
it don't bother me

and when we meet up again
who knows when it will come
we can remember when
we were young on the run

but if we never hook up
don't be worried or sad
drink the wine in the cup
and know the good wasn't bad

but it don't bother me
it don't bother me
be what you wanna be
it don't bother me
you oughta see what I see
all I want is to be
free free as I can be free
it don't bother me

Track Name: Nine Lives
NINE LIVES song lyrics 2nd version
By Joel Sattler

you're held together by scars
you wail at the planet Mars
you dodge in between the cars
no one can ever catch you

you live life at the extremes
no one will ever match you

nine lives
they say you got nine lives

I guess that must explain
how again and again
you manage to survive
I guess you got nine lives

you love with midnight screams
you haunt everyone's dreams

they say you got nine lives

I guess that must explain
how again and again
you manage to survive
I guess you got nine lives

nine lives
they say you've got nine lives
nine lives

I don't understand
why everyone likes you
you're so unkind
you're so untrue
but still there's something
who knows what it does
everybody loves you

nine lives
they say you've got nine lives

I guess that must explain
how again and again
you manage to survive
nine lives
I guess you got nine lives

they say you got nine lives
I guess that must explain
I guess that must explain

you're held together by scars
you wail at the planet Mars
you dodge in between the cars
no one can ever catch you

nine lives
they say you've got nine lives

I guess that must explain
how again and again
you manage to survive
I guess you got nine lives

What?s Next Lyrics Draft

Verse 1

What?s next?
What?s left?
All I see
Is now in wreck

What?s false?
What?s true?
All I hear
Is you you you

What?s next for me?
What lay behind?
What stands before me?
What?s on my mind?

I don?t know, you don?t know
Oh nobody knows
What is left to show
How the story goes

What?s next?
What?s here?

All I hear
I never knew

What is left to show
How the story goes

What?s next?
What?s next?

For me to do . . .
Track Name: Brilliant Cover Up
Brilliant Cover-up by: B K Williamson © 3/31/2013

I know I should be happy
there’s somethin' very wrong
I’m feeling pretty crappy
Get the doctor on the phone
Long distance medication
connect me if you please
His custom preparation
is exactly what I need

You think you know me better
And you want to be my fix
I’m yours in sunny weather
That’s all there is to it
I used to think forever
was attainable and true
And happy ever after
was something we all do

Chorus:

I'd give anything to see
beyond this cloud that covers me
Lie to yourself enough
An' all that’s left... is your brilliant cover-up
What used to be is gone
Disappearing oh so quick
The lines of right an’ wrong gettin' sucked into the mix
That monkey on your back
an' your day to day routine
You're slippin' through the cracks
of this life so obscene
Where there’s life there is hope
Is what you’re telling me
We all learn to cope and the truth will set you free
Been down this road before to find a dead-end street
I’d love to think there’s more than this illusion killing me

Chorus: =======
Track Name: Can't Go Back
Can't Go Back by : BK Williamson © 7/23/2015

Runnin'...
Run as fast as you can
The gun... still smokin' in your hand
Feelin' like... a stranger in a strange land
Nothin's right... but you had to make your stand
Powder burns... on a dead man's face
Lessons learned... in the hardest way
Respect is earned... but now it's far too late
No concern...
Now that you tempted fate

Chorus:

Oh, runnin' on fumes
There ain't no sleepin'
Sorrow and gloom
It's all too much
Ain't no time to think about tomorrow
You crossed that line
it swallowed you up

Redemption on your mind
you're never gonna find
Got a little off track...
You can't go back
No you can't go back
Tears... rollin' down your face
Fear... Nothin' can take its place
You know... you can always plead your case
Down below... to the devils cold embrace
Track Name: Chasing Dragons
Chasing Dragons by B K Williamson © 3/31/2013 Revised: 7/3/2015

The night is gettin’ colder the fire is burnin’ low
We've grown so much older
The hours pass so slow
You have come to know me
through my veil of discontent
So maybe you can show me
how these broken pieces fit
Far over the mountains
in a city by the sea
I left my soul an’ family
I hope they wait for me
I went off chasing dragons
no weapons at my side
all I found were ghosts
that haunt my empty pride

Chorus:

You can fly hard an’ fast far away from life
Curiously balanced on the edge of a knife
All the vices you depend on just hoping to survive
make you shiver as you look into the mighty dragons eyes
On a bed of burnin’ coals
I lay when I was young
It heated up my soul an' put a voice into my song
I never saw the demons
all disguised in their charm
but I felt them suck the life
through the holes in both my arms

Chorus: =========
Track Name: I'm Goin Home
I?m Going Home
Tracy Hutchison

I?ve tasted the wind
I?ve seen beyond the horizon
I?ve traveled the highways
And byways
Never quite escaping reality
Or temptation
Oh the things I?ve seen
A young man?s dreams

I?ve spent a lifetime
On the road
Never standing still
But ever alone
Now is the time
I?ve made up my mind
I?m going home
I?m going home

There?s nothing like
A desert breeze
To get you high
And make you feel free
How long can it last
I?ve asked and asked
Oh the things I?ve seen
A young man?s dreams

I?ve spent a lifetime
On the road
Never standing still
But ever alone
Now is the time
I?ve made up my mind
I?m going home
I?m going home

I?ve gone off track
Off the beaten path
And never looked back
But there?s a time to roam
A time to be alone
And a time to head home

I?ve spent a lifetime
On the road
Never standing still
But ever alone
Now is the time
I?ve made up my mind
I?m going home
I?m going home
