Lonesome Rider: Hell no This won’t be the ending, I’m sure Hell yes Still up for the fight They showed me the door My bet was double their nothin’ They dumbed it down good An idiot rant If I knew The things that I know right now If I’d seen The whites of their eyes Good night Irene This went from silly to sober Good night Irene This mess is our own Ride on my My lonesome rider Ride on My lonesome dream Not now And not forever, my love Not now Got their filth on my mind You’ve got the wind at your back But it hits you different, and colder This day is quite vivid for you For me, it's the past Ride on my My lonesome rider Ride on My lonesome dream There’s worlds to be seen And fortunes to earn And I’ve got no clue what to do Ride on my My lonesome rider

Echo Chamber 04:53
Halfway to ruin But I know its somewhere Halfway to heaven and it don't feel right Halfway to home And I'm just talkin' nonsense Halfway to hell, don't you turn off that light... In the past, they called it danger In the past, they called it fate Fell into the echo chamber Fell into the void Fell into the noise Woke up my ears were ringin' From all the hate you brought From all the hate your bringin' Goodbye to desperate Goodbye to sufferin' Reap what you sow every time you lie Goodbye surrender, Goodbye destruction I never made things easy Never even tried In the past, they called it danger In the past, they called it fate Fell into the echo chamber Fell into the void Fell into the noise Woke up my ears were ringin' From all the hate you brought From all the hate your bringin' Well I'm a halfway here And I'm a halfway gone And I'm a halfway home And I'm a halfway wrong

Dead End Shore Yeah you You made a joke out of everyhting And I, made no sense But that's just my thing Ain't comin' back for the things that you said I'm comin' back for the things that you did Out there on that Dead End Shore Where the wind never stopped And the worst was forgot And you showed me I'm not What I thought I was destined to be Hey you There's a right time for everyhting And now, ain't that time And you know it too You mock all the things that we said Contradict all the things that we did Out there on that Dead End Shore Where the wind never stopped And the worst was forgot And you showed me I'm not What I thought I was destined to be On that Dead End Shore On that Dead End Shore We walked to the edge And stared into the sea And the ships that we saw Shimmered still in the breeze Ain't comin' back for the things that we said We're comin' back for the things that we did Out there on that Dead End Shore Where the wind never stopped And the worst was forgot And you showed me I'm not What I thought I was destined to be

Last Summer Song: Bring it back Jack Act like nothin’ ever happened here Let it unravel Until the mystery comes unstuck Break a sweat, and Crash through the glass ceiling Time to tangle And resurrect our luck And we will Never heed the poison And we will Never heed the light And we will Never need nobody Now that last summer Has faded in the night Take a long look I bet your eyes are burnin’ now What you’ve seen Is just a taste of what you’ll get The dream ain’t done But that don’t mean you’ll find it here Lost in space Couldn’t hold on to it And we will Never heed the poison And we will Never heed the light And we will Never need nobody Now that last summer Now that last summer Now that last summer Has faded in the night

Killin' Time 03:36
Last time I saw you It was stone cold night And, we waited patient Coaxin' the mornin' light, but There's still somethin' That I wanna say But you ain't ready Gonna jump in anyway Gave you the best years Gave you the ready sign Gave you the next move But you've just been Killin' Time... Back then you took me Out to world's unknown, but When we got there I said, »this feels a lot like home« Gave you the best years Gave you the ready sign Gave you the next move But you've just been Killin' Time... I'd take you back I'd free you from this prison Do you one better Don't need your rhyme or reason You told the best jokes I loved every punch line You took great pictures But now your now your now your now your Just Killin' Time Gave you the best years Gave you the ready sign Gave you the next move But you've just been Killin' Time...

Dime A Dozen 04:10
Dime A Dozen I ain't afraid You should know that There's nothin' in the dark to see now Can't runaway And I can't look back Got no options on the table He said sit back down »sign on the dotted line... you're gonna get your due I promise« He said »you read it wrong... It ain't that bad.« I stared into his eyes, with laughter And it all comes down to this And it all comes down to nothin' We vanish in the mist Dime A Dozen That's what we're called Dime A Dozen In the end we fall, fall, fall, fall, fall... Who knows what? Don't you press your luck They call it truth, but I call it treason Don't you drive that road Out past your Brother's farm Keep your head down, its a hunting season Take a hit from this You know we got no place to hide Take a shot of this Only oblivion's on our side...

Broken Town Blues: The ice has thickened on the windows The northwind's screamin' in the yard Out there I met my devil But I faced her down Livin' at the edge At the edge of broken town The moon was crazy dancin' In an old night gown A phantom in the coldest night At the edge of Broken Town You were wreckin' havoc, with my future Kicked all resistance to the ground Covered up the body in a blanket You said we gotta get our stories straight Said we better syncronize Before the cops come round You tore me down In broken town Solo The moon was crazy dancin' In her old night gown A phantom in the coldest night At the edge of broken town The rifles all been buried in the backyard The bullets, their all drownin' in the well I walk through town like nothin' happened A righteous smile painted on my face You claim that you've got my back But I don't know how It's been a thousand years ago Since you've left broken town
8.
If I knew then, what I know now If I knew when, the sun goes down No bite, no bark, no fire, no pain We're taken for granted, but we're takin' down names The profiteers, well their all ears Waitin' for a verdict from a jury of their peers Frontier justice and a kangaroo court Their dividin' the spoils and their killin' for sport Shoot the bear He's still out there Shoot the bear I've seen him in the clear Better move before he rise Never looked into his eyes Shoot the bear He's almost here Shoot the bear I see him in the clear Better move before he rise While we still got The element of surprise Shoot the bear 3 in the clip Each one a trip Keepin' it focused The target adrift Blind Man's Bluff and a Simon Says Better off silent than a bangin' your head Crowded at the bottom Manic at the top Know everyhting we need to Plentys been forgot His hand shakin' - somethin' on his mind Staggerin' like a drunkard, in and out of time
9.
Come all aboard This is the nowhere train Come all aboard Got just ourselves to blame A stoned conductor A drunken fireman They’ve taken us for fools Got no ticket in our hand Come all aboard The city crashes by Come all aboard Now we’re in the countryside No place for you here Knew it from the start This is the edge of nowhere And its tearin’ us apart Fast train to nowhere Fast train to hell Fast train to nowhere Got nothin’ left to tell Seen it all before Felt it in our bones Fast train to nowhere Will never take us home…. Come all aboard Nearly made it to the end Come all aboard Thought that we could start again I’ve seen the waters Chased the settin’ sun I won’t stay still If there’s a chance to run

The Lights of Red Valley: I said, put on your red coat We're walkin' slow in the rain Won't take no for an answer girl And I won't take the blame I can see where it's goin' Don't you act like I'm blind There's a light in the Shipwreck Bar And it pulls us inside There are a few things uncertain And a few things that I'll never know But when I look in your eyes The lights of red valley they glow It's layin' there wounded Like a dog with no bone We're toeing a dangerous line In a game we don't own I'd ask for my heart back But I know its long gone Won't take no for an answer girl Now just don't prove me wrong There are a few things uncertain And a few things that I'll never know But when I look in your eyes The lights of red valley they glow When I look in your eyes The lights of red valley they glow Look here, Look there The worst distraction I know When I look in your eyes The lights of red valley they glow When I look in your eyes The lights of red valley they glow When I look in your eyes The lights of red valley they glow
