Track Name: Getaway
Last time I saw you several years ago
You were heading down south for the Gulf of Mexico
Across the border you wound up in Monterrey
People around here said you were running away

You left town without delay to avoid being put in jail
You made your getaway

Down at the bank the manager had the bankers blues
And though they can't prove anything they blame it all on you
With your motor running you sat in your Chevrolet
And when things started to fall apart you made your getaway

You left town without delay to avoid being put in jail
You made your getaway

Your partners in crime caught red handed at the scene
Left to face the music and nobody spilled the beans
Now I'm not glad to see you now you're back in town
Cause you'll only bring me trouble and you'll drag me down

You were gone it was the only way you could avoid being put in jail
You made your getaway
Track Name: Hearts of Darkness
Hearts of Darkness

Still river flows beneath a leaden sky
Dark jungle grows mystery lurks behind
Under muddy waters deep currents hide
Where madness preys on the unsound mind

Hearts of darkness hearts of pain
See the sunshine through the rain
Crazy witch doctor voodoo dream
Hearts of darkness never seen

Journey back into prehistoric times
Savage nature strange creatures thrive
Poison arrows and snakes and vines
Survival of the fittest to stay alive

Cross the river to the other side
The things they said was it truth or lies
Did you find what you wanted or come to learn
That once you've left there is no return
Track Name: Rising Tide
Blind ambition ruled by pride
He keeps a pistol by his side
In this land under the gun
There`s many people on the run

Leftist guerillas and car bombs
There is no right out of two wrongs
In the night you live in fear
And one day you'll disappear

I can see it it`s very clear
Although you don't know it your end is near
Don't you know you won't stop the rising tide
Don't you know you won't stop it not this time

Caught in the middle between extremes
Everyday people dreaming dreams
That soon will come a better year
When they can live their lives without fear

What price for freedom you decide
Make it easy wont you step aside
Don't you know you won't stop the rising tide
Don't you know you won't stop it not this time
Track Name: These Blues
These Blues

You can do what you want do as you please
But if you want him then you cant have me
Its a one way street take this for fact
Once you head down it there's no turning back
Your roving eye and a seven year itch
If you run with the wolves then you're going to get bit

These blues that you're laying on me
These blues are killing me
These blues I'm going to set you free

Its a bad situation stay out all night
Coming back home just before light
Said that you were going to visit a friend
But I followed you and saw you with him

These blues are going to come back on you
These blues for the things that you do
These blues are going to get you too

Sooner or later it wont be long
Somebody is going to do you wrong
Needing sympathy to ease
You'll look around but me you wont find your mind

These blues are going to come back on you
These blues for the things that you do
These blues are going to get you too
Track Name: Opportunity
Opportunity

The opportunity might not come again
Count your blessings can we deal you in
Leave your dignity at the door
Mock integrity less is more

Minor celebrity on a downward slide
Makes his living selling his pride
Cardboard cut-out with shifty eyes
Fill your pockets with money for lies

Tabloid headlines tarnish the stars
Statue of Elvis has been found on Mars
Three headed baby or so it seems
Born to parents in the Philippines

Alien creatures from outer space
Dropped in to visit the human race
Common denominator here's the line
You'll fool most of the people all of the time

Caveat emptor so they say
At least one sucker's born every day
Pay your money then you stand in line
Take your chances every time

Snake oil salesman knows his lines
Florida real estate solid gold mine
Step right up won't you gather round
Make a stake put your money down
Track Name: Around About Midnight
Around About Midnight

Around about midnight, long after the sun goes down
Around about midnight, when there's nobody else around
Your friends tell me that you're leaving town
Where are you going to go when you're feeling down
When you are lonely when you've got the blues
Where you going to run to and what you gonna do
Around about midnight

Outside my window on the east side of town
Out in the darkness rain its coming down
Thunder and lightning a wild night in storm
You'll need somewhere to go where it's sheltered and warm
When you are lonely when you've got the blues
Where you going to run to and what you gonna do
Around about midnight

Around about midnight, long after the sun goes down
Around about midnight, when there's nobody else around
My friends tell me there's better to be found
On just about any street in any town
And when I am lonely when I've got the blues
I'm gonna find somebody to take place of you
Around about midnight
Track Name: Damn Your Eyes
Damn Your Eyes

Covert communication there is something in your eye
If I look a little closer what am I going to find
You need attention while your man is out of town
You want to pick me up but then you'll put me down

Damn your eyes don't you look at me that way
Damn your eyes woman what have you got to say
Damn your eyes

Relationship of convenience he's there where you are
If it were more than this you wouldn't be messing with my heart
I don't need your cold hearted love affair
You'll take what you can get ant leave without a care

History repeats we've been this way before
Tactful confrontation I can't take it anymore
Time goes by I am weary of the game
You could fool me once but this time won`t be the same
Track Name: Hard to See
Hard to See

In the darkness there shines like a star in the night
Far away in the distance a flickering light
A signal or warning what can it be
But it`s hard yes it`s hard, hard to see

The great wall of China or the Maginot line
Keeps out invaders who`ll mess with your mind
Your heart is a prisoner in the Bastille
It`s not hard not so hard, hard to see

You feel like stranger outside looking in
Never risking a moment this way you can`t win
Keep life at a distance watch on TV
It`s not hard not so hard ,hard to see

Keep the lid on the bottle your hands on the wheel
Show no emotion take to your heels
Running away from the things that could be
It`s not hard not so hard, hard to see
Track Name: Cost of Living
Cost of Living

In need of inspiration to find some words for this song
Something about my baby how she`s done me wrong
Should I be angry or should I be sad
Pretend I'm in love or act raving mad
That's the cost of living you have to sell your soul
That's the cost of living that's the way it goes

So Ill just keep on keeping on making it up as I go
As long as the words keep coming I wont stop the flow
This should be about a heart that's broke in two
This should be about me and you
That's the cost of living you have to sell your soul
That's the cost of living that's the way it goes
Track Name: Streets of the City
Streets of the City

If you walk the streets of the city
There's some places where the sun never shines
And you'll see some things that aren't very pretty
In this game of life we walk a fine line
There's a story that lies behind faded eyes
Out on the streets of the city

Out on the streets of the city
Glass towers reach for the sky
Cold steel and concrete have no pity
and time is on nobodies side
There`s a story that lies behind all their eyes
Out on the streets of the city
Out on the streets of your city
Out on the streets of this city

Out on the streets of the city
Blank faces show you no smiles
People rushing by going somewhere
Lost and found in their world for a while
There`s a story that lies behind all their eyes
Out on the streets of the city
Out on the streets of your city
Out on the streets of this city
