Track Name: Smoking Gun
You, you’ve got a hold on me
Your passion, girl, affects me like no one
You’ll never go cold on me
Love so hot it melts down the sun

And my heart’s on fire burnin’ just for you
And I’m a prisoner to your touch

Power hungry, power love
Swingin’ low and hangin’ tough
Runnin’ ragged, come undone
Your love hits me like a smoking gun

The way you make me feel
Just as if I’m walking on water
Every night is New Year’s Eve
My love for you can’t get any hotter
Track Name: Stand
A quiet angel holds the key to the kingdom
Holding you in my arms is all I need
Emotion leads me to you, a drifting soul
It’s for you only that my heart bleeds

And I’m calling to you

Here I Stand, baby
In the shadows
Waiting for you
Outside your love
Come to me
Run to me
Here I stand
Forever yours

All the powers gather, amazed by your beauty
Captured is my mind, my body, and my soul
Life is a desert without hope when you’re not with me
A sailor lost at sea with no star to guide him home

And I’m calling to you

A city of gold has no fortune without you
It’s by your hand that heaven’s gate opens free
The castle’s tower holds one sleeping a silent dream
Across a burning sky I carry the torch of love
For you my heart lives and my desire screams

And I’m calling to you
Track Name: Cry Me a River
I can feel it coming
Like the dark night against the dawn
Drinking a bottle of memories
I’ll be damned if it’s all gone
Caught in a wave of emotion
Like a web inside my head
Feeling bruised and broken
From all those things you said

I was waiting long and lonely
To find a love baby, just like you
Someone to call my own
Now baby we’re through

Ooh yeah Cry me a River
Till my soul is lost from view
Cry me a river without you

Cold and forsaken
Left outside your heart
Asking for one more chance
While I’m still torn apart
Don’t you know I’m the river
Flowing to a sea of blue
Into the sun I’m leaving my guns drawn
C’mon baby they’re aimed at you

So you’ve been waiting long & lonely
To find a love maybe just like me
You wanna call me your own
But you set me free
Track Name: Above the Law
Tough boys in the streets tonight
Fiery eyes hands on their guns
Got the money for the boys in blue
Crime pays till kingdom come
They said it won’t be easy
The system just can’t be beat
Won’t stop the fire of injustice
Until you turn up the heat

And when they say “And justice for all”
Not when you’re above the law

Above the law, system’s headed for a breakdown
Above the law, think it’s time for a shakedown

Man’s hand filled with the sugar
Hands caught in the cookie jar
On the streets in an instant
‘Cause the law’s long arm don’t reach too far
In the city he thinks he’s safe
Turns cocaine into bread
He thinks he’s some messiah
I know he’s gonna wind up dead

Pre Chrous


Gun’s loaded and it’s ready
Two shots right through the head
What to say as he walks free
And a woman lays there dead
This story has no good ending
Her son cries every night
He knows that man’s still out there
The pain eats him up inside

And when they say “And justice for all”
Not when blood hits the wall
Track Name: SSDD!
Same Shit Different Day
Try to make it look so easy, these games you play
Your world turns out blue while mine comes out gray
Same Shit Different Day

When I woke up this morning
I rolled right outta my bed
Got my morning coffee
Turned on my TV set
Some big name ball player's crying
$100 million just ain’t enough
I’m rubbing nickels together
And he thinks he’s got it rough

Same Shit Different Day
Bright lights go on and it’s time to play
Million Dollar Arm and your ten cent head’s in the way
Same Shit Different Day

You know I need you
You say that we’re only friends
That’s like shouting 4 letter words, girl
And it spells out my end
You know I’ve got enough friends
Can’t keep track of them all
And if I wanna have one more
I guess I'd go and buy a dog

Same Shit Different Day
Love is just a game all us grown ups play
Bow down on your knees and let us all pray
For just the Same Shit a Different Way

Dreaming of making it big
With my girl by my side
Failure leaves me flat on my face
And keeps on wounding my pride
Handcuffed to this nightmare
Chained to the reality
Long winding road to the middle
Is all that’s left for me

Same Shit Different Day
Same black cloud always here to stay
Acid rain your sunshine away
Same Shit Different Day

Same Shit Different Day
I don’t know if I can go on this way
I'd rather burn out than just fade away
Same Shit Different Day
