Track Name: Wildcat
Wildcat

Looking for some action on a California day
I stepped right outside my front door
9-9-6 she's topped off and ready
Leaves me begging for more

Racing leather on my skin
The wind chasing me

I’m a wild (Wildcat)
Wild (Wildcat)

Twisting and turning and speeding away
Draggin’ knees on Ojai 33
Mulholland Highway, my switchback serenade
Twist of my throttle sets me free

This ain’t no Love Rollercoaster, baby
It’s like a terror train

I’m a Wild (Wildcat)
Shifting gears in the Night
I’m a Wild (Wildcat)
And I’m ready to strike, tonight!
Track Name: Go for the Throat
Come, come a little closer
So you understand
I wanna be your lovin' man
The talk is cheap
It's all over town
Well I know the reason
Why you're hangin' around

Your heat is on
But you're actin' cool
Gonna break it to you
Here's some news for you

You gotta go, go
Go for the throat, baby
If you go, go
Don't hide what you wanna do
You gotta go, go
Go for the throat, baby
Go for the throat, yeah
Before they roll all over you
Before they roll all over you, yeah

Crack that whip
Break the glass
Time to move
And make it fast
A whole lot of women
Are misunderstood
Don't think you will
When I know you should

(repeat bridge)

(repeat chorus)

Listen
Show your love, baby, show your love
Show me what you got for me, baby
Give it up, give it up
Show your love, baby, show your love
Ooh ooh ooh, now show me
Oh take me there, take me, baby
Go for throat, baby

(repeat chorus)

You gotta go, go
Go for the throat, baby
If you go, go
Don't hide, don't hide
You gotta go, go
Go for the throat, baby
Go, go, don't hide, don't hide
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah
Go for the throat right now
Before they roll all over you
Track Name: Lil Miss Rosie
Little Miss Rosie

There’s a woman on the front porch
Bible in her hand
Preaching that she’ll save my soul and
Send me to a promised land
My walls will never crumble
Ears will never heal
Just take your preachin’ elsewhere
Cuz I don’t believe

Ooh Little Miss Rosie
Ooh Little Miss Rosie
On your knees you’re prayin’
But there’s just no savin’ me

Didn’t I tell you lady
Keep your preachin’ to yourself
I’ve got one foot in the grave
And it’s grounded in hell
My walls will never crumble
Ears will never heal
Take your preachin’ elsewhere
Cuz I just don’t believe

Chorus

There’s a woman on the front porch
Bible in her hand
Preaching that she’ll save my soul and
Send me to a promised land
Swore my walls would never crumble
Ears would never heal
My arms are reaching skyward
The truth has been revealed

Ooh Little Miss Rosie
Ooh Little Miss Rosie
On my knees I’m prayin’
Giving thanks for saving me

Ooh Little Miss Rosie
Ooh Little Miss Rosie
And sometimes I feel like
Like I was born to fly
Track Name: Simple Man
Simple Man

I am just a simple man, working on the land
Oh it ain't easy
I am just a simple man, working with my hands
Oh believe me
Freedom is the only thing means a damn to me
Oh you can't fake it
Freedom is the only song, sings a song for me
Oh we're gonna make it

I am just a simple man, trying to be me
Oh it ain't easy
I am just a simple man, trying to be free
Oh believe me
Freedom is the only thing means a damn to me
Oh you can't fake it
Freedom is the only song, sings a song for me
Oh we're gonna make it

I am just a simple man, working on the land
Oh it ain't easy
I'm just a simple man, working with my hands
Oh baby, believe me
I'm just a simple man, yeah yeah
Freedom is the only thing means a damn to me
I'm just a simple man, yeah
Track Name: Greased and Primed
Greased and Primed

Ignite me, plug me in
The night is young and I’m ready to win
The lights are red, a no go
Can’t hold back and I’m ready to blow
I’m fired up , the crowd roars
Another second I’ll hit the stage door
One more scream for the road
I’m so hot I’m hittin’ overload

Greased and Primed
Ready to roll
Greased and Primed
Gonna shake your soul
Greased and Primed
Ready to Roll
Pull my trigger and I take my toll

Bright lights melting me
Arms are raised as far as I can see
Raging heart, I feel the beat
All around I see ‘em leave their seats
Can’t slow down Can’t stop movin’
I gotta know I got the people groovin’
Wound so tight about to break
This pain’s a pleasure it’s nothing I can’t take
Track Name: Heaven Seventeen
Heaven 17

Shadows in the night
Call out to my memory
Your silhouette reminds me
Of how it used to be
Can't live in the past
Cause I'd lay down & die
You're in my heart now girl
Sure as the stars in the sky

Why can't I feel your touch
Live through these restless nights

Heaven 17

Pictures on the wall
Just remind me of you
Can't escape the vision
Of forbidden youth
Too fast for love
We're to slow to be friends
When I look back now
Why did it have to end
Track Name: Saints and Sinners
Saints & Sinners

Johnny hits the town on Friday
Money spent the day he gets paid
Living off his magic dust, he’s got it made
Sister Mary lives for Sunday
For the body and blood of Christ
On her knees, her life is a sacrifice

Everybody's gonna pay in the end
Will it be by water or fire?

Here we are
Saints & Sinners
On your knees either way
Praying for your desire

Johnny's in a vicious circle
No one with loyalty
Looking out for #1 is all they believe
Sister Mary lives a life of service
From now until Kingdom Come
Her only love is for His only Son

You've gotta pay to play
The only currency is your soul

Here we are
Saints & Sinners
Begging for forgiveness
Nothing shakes our faith

Bridge:
We’re all lost in the promised land
Searching for love until our last stand
Praying to the light
Above...
Track Name: Medusa
Medusa


Every night I fall asleep and pray I don’t see your face
The way you left me lonely in this cold and dark place
Ghosts of days past, unspoken, better left unsaid
Can’t get past the crazy that lives inside your head

No turning back away from the fire
Once my beauty now there’s no more desire

One
Once upon a time my heart belonged to you
Two
Two times burned by the things that you do
Three
The trinity, the root of your attack
Four
Forevermore I won’t be looking back Medusa

Here I am alone surrounded by your past
All the men you’ve turned to stone, you think my die is cast
Slide, ooh snake eyes, hear the rattle of your tail
Can’t shake the snakes for whatever it takes I’m buried in this hell
Track Name: Superman
Superman

Waking up to life
Just an ordinary man
And I rise to fight another day
To find a means to an end
Every day we pay in some way
We’ve got to live to break the chains
To live your life, and to dare to dream
To end this cycle of pain

Cross any ocean
Drift through the night
Become a man of steel
And have the courage to take flight

You need something to believe in
The power’s at hand
Find the fire inside you
Rise up, Superman

The tension's up the lights go down
Keep your, eyes on the prize
No time to lose, so don't make excuses
Cause no one hears your cries
Your dreams are right in front of you
You gotta walk through the fire
The power is within you
It’s in your heart's desire

Cross any ocean
Drift through the night
Become a man of steel
And have the courage to take flight

You need something to believe in
The power’s at hand
Find the fire inside you
And rise up

Bridge:
You can walk through shadows, all your life
And you may never find your soul
Only you can fly so high, so high
And it’s only if you believe…

You need something to believe in
The power’s at hand
Stand up and shout it out
And rise up, Superman

You need something to believe in
The power’s at hand
Find the fire inside
And rise up!
