Track Name: Bow To The Pedal
A dream on a ride, a thrill every night
And I know we're gonna bring it on for a long, long time
To all the people we meet on the way
We would be nowhere without all of your love and we'll thank you till our dyin' day
So bow to the pedal and go

Take me on a ride now honey
I wanna get some more
Take another ride
One more time
Ya make me wanna ride now honey
Get on and get some more
Take another ride


A breath for the soul, a wish for the wise
And I know its only a matter of time before the people rise
Wherever we go the road is our bride
And she will hold on to our love affair no matter how far we ride
So Bow to the pedal and go

Take me on a ride now honey
I wanna get some more
Take another ride
One more time
All night long now honey
Get out and get some more
Take another ride

And nothing hurts like yesterday
But facing fears will help them wash away
The only road that you can pave
Is the one you face today
So bow to the pedal and go

A dream on a ride, a thrill every night
And we're gonna keep on playing out for a long, long time
To all the people we meet on the way
We would be nowhere without all of your love and I'll thank you till my dyin' day
Track Name: Born To Be Loud
Starving I lick my lips I'm back to sleeping with the beast
There's a whiff of a dream and it seems to believe to believe in me
The voices are building outside like a message on fire
I can see a way out but it's barely out of reach
But not for long cuz we've been

Born to be
Born born to be
Born born to be loud

The silence of the people is the greatest fear I have
What’s the point of a voice if you're not strong enough to deliver its value
Our people are hungry for justice
But just as we stand up a face on the screen's saying
Quiet down all of you
But not for long cuz we've been

Born to be
Born born to be
Born born to be loud

Born to be
Born born to be
Born born to be loud

Born to be
Born born to be
Born born to be loud
Track Name: Butcher and the Baker
We have a situation starting to unfold
Slowly pride and pressure have come in to take their toll
We have to discover, got to discover, another way to start the day
Cuz the taste of proper swine is gone

Down by the Butcher's Bay the slaughterhouse is stoned
Too much violence in the silence of the Wardens' home
Back to another, back to another, famine for the banner hall
So stock up before they ban it all

The Butcher and the Baker
What have you become?
Makin Bacon for the Nation
Hungrily we watch em feed

Outside the paradise is looking pretty bleak
Students and the children getting shot down in the streets
Blood for your prayers, bread for the Mayor, and Liberty's hung on the wall
But only divided do we fall

The Butcher and the Baker
What have you become?
Makin Bacon for the Nation
Hungrily we watch em feed

Run out your rag of chains, we're still standing strong
Even when you run the Pigpen rampant all night long
We are the brothers down in the gutters, the Brotherhood inside the storm
And we have justice to perform

The Butcher and the Baker
What have you become?
Makin Bacon for the Nation
Hungrily we watch em feed
The Butcher and the Baker
Track Name: Family of the Sun
There's nothing you can say to me
That could shake my faith in our Family of the Sun, can ya hear me
Buying out humanity, selling our democracy
Do you know what you've done
Slowly filling up the streets there's a general lack of trust in your affairs
Growing up inside the throes of greed is not what we will make our children bear

Love's the only crown I wanna feel

The sun is shining down today
So throw your arguments away
So we can have some fun, can ya feel me
Starting up a family
So that love can follow me
All of it's just begun

Coming home from on the road I told my babe I just don't know what to do
She consoled me then she told me baby everything's alright now

Loves the only crown I wanna feel
Loves the only crown I wanna feel
Love's the only crown I wanna feel
Track Name: Work Together
Gone is yesterday
But we aren't far away
Lost but not afraid
To say we can a change

Wait for me baby I just wanna know
Will our passion wake up today
Since you've gone away trouble's all I know
Every day

We could try real hard this time
To read between the lines
Maybe we can work together (work together)
Yeah we could leave the past behind
Cuz baby if we try
We can work together (work together)

Hold on to our song, never let it go
Cuz you know we sing it all for you
One more night to go, hope we come back soon
Some day

We could try real hard this time
To read between the lines
Maybe we can work together (work together)
Yeah we could leave the past behind
Cuz baby if we try
We can work together (work together)

We could try real hard this time
To read between the lines
Maybe we can work together (work together)
Yeah we could leave the past behind
Cuz baby if we try
We can work together (work together)

We could try real hard this time
To read between the lines
Maybe we can work together (work together)
Yeah we could leave the past behind
Cuz baby if we try
We can work together (work together)
Track Name: If You're Ready
Caught by the weight of it all
Palm to your face and the moments gone
The pain it don't matter at all
Today is a better day
To stay living you get up when you fall
Feel your feet beneath ya till you're standing tall
You say that you're ready for a new door
Come one I'll help you find the way

If you're ready, come on
Everybody come on

Sold by the bass in the hall
Booties rockin' hard and the funk is raw
Tonight the Gang is comin out the front door
We can wash your stress away
The fight ain't about the color you are
Its about a brotherhood between us all
My sight set on teaching us how to love
Together is the only way

If you're ready, come on
Everybody come on

And if you think you've lost your way
Bit off more than you could chew today
Well get your hands up off the ground
Don't let the pressure hold you down
Slow down

If you're ready come on
Everybody come on
Track Name: Love Bucket
Caught by the weight of it all
Palm to your face and the moments gone
The pain it don't matter at all
Today is a better day
To stay living you get up when you fall
Feel your feet beneath ya till you're standing tall
You say that you're ready for a new door
Come one I'll help you find the way

If you're ready, come on
Everybody come on

Sold by the bass in the hall
Booties rockin' hard and the funk is raw
Tonight the Gang is comin out the front door
We can wash your stress away
The fight ain't about the color you are
Its about a brotherhood between us all
My sight set on teaching us how to love
Together is the only way

If you're ready, come on
Everybody come on

And if you think you've lost your way
Bit off more than you could chew today
Well get your hands up off the ground
Don't let the pressure hold you down
Slow down

If you're ready come on
Everybody come on
Track Name: Love Ya Till The Morning
You, I got the feeling that you're on to me
Yeah your eyes are saying I should join you on the dance floor
Babe, I didn't come here for a
But girl your gaze is hard to shake off
I see your mind's already made up

I'll love ya till the morning
I'll love ya till the morning sun comes up

She held the rhythm in a tambourine
And when she smiled I could hardly breathe
Her body shakin, curves are makin me dream
Babe I wasn't lookin for your love today
But now your hips are pressed against me
And girl the fire is plain to see
Feelin you kiss my lips
One hit is all I need to measure your
Passion and lust for kicks
Our fix is waiting
Love me baby

I'll love ya till the morning
I'll love ya till the morning sun comes up

I'll love ya till the morning
I'll love ya till the morning sun comes up
Track Name: Like a Piece of Candy
In a city full of quiet streets where the pavement grows and the grass is dead
There's a girl singing softly down to her little brother sleeping in his bed
With her song she caressed the silence and drove the troubled dreams from his head
Pulled him out of his isolation, the sweetest remedy he could have
And she gave it all

She's like a piece of candy
I wanna bring her back now
She's like a piece of candy

Roll back to my younger days when the road was long and the cash was bread
Sleeping out in the mountain cold with the dog next to me in my bed
Going out to the western shore with another van, another song
No matter what the struggle said, she was worth every second all along
Yeah she gave it all

She's like a piece of candy
I wanna bring her back now
She's like a piece of candy

Looking back on all the sound I tasted, it makes me wanna go feast some more
Open ears are an invitation; another bridge, another door
A true breath of communication you can't buy in any store
And we played it all

She's like a piece of candy
I wanna bring her back now
She's like a piece of candy
Track Name: Lost and Found
Walkin down with my eye to the sky and a mind of pure emotion
Not a care in the world and it sure is a symbol of devotion
Another mile with a smile I'm alive with a vision to be spoken
Livin on and on and on and on
I know where I belong

Hey
Under the thunder I wonder whats coming my way
Let it out let it out
Hey
The ocean of motion I ride with the hope I can stay
Let it out let it out

Come on down to the ground where the sound is a pulse of our creation
What a crown that I found lookin out at the voice of another nation
Finally there's a me walking free
It's a one man operation
Livin on and on and on and on
I know where I belong

Complacent memories come back to wander
My mind eternally
but I don't give a shit

Hey
Under the thunder I wonder whats coming my way
Let it out let it out
Hey
The ocean of motion I ride with the hope I can stay
Let it out let it out until ya freak out

Leave out in the night
When the days of glory come in
Leave out by my side
Take my soul along
Track Name: Walker Texas Pool Shark
Welcome to the heat he said,
A one man stand with his hand on his waistband
What can I get ya in for today?
I said Hey now, if its alright with you,
I'd like to take a wild shot with the pool cue.
Whatcha say to that my friend?
Well he stood there in black boots
He had a badge ready for the law
He said watch these angles
Then he rocked the ball

Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
He's the Walker

One by one by one the kids lined up to get beat by the Texas gun
With a smile he'd say thank you for the game
I said Wait a minute,
How did a cop learn to get the drop on the students flat top like that
What's your secret my man?
Well he stood there in black boots
He had a badge ready for the law
He said watch these angles
Then he rocked the ball

Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Hes the Walker

Raise your hand and face the man
Make your stand Ranger man

Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
He's the Walker, the Texas Pool Shark
Track Name: Mantra
Lately the road has been so close I can taste it
The cold is seeping in but we made it
One more night we can dance the night away
Baby the crowd is getting tired of the same shit
Yeah music's not a power to be wasted
So climb aboard the Mothership and ride the night away

On and on and on
Once again let the rock and roll live on
Like a wheel bearing down to save the sound we're paid to play
Cuz I'd rather have more time than money

Outside the people working harder just to get by
And every single rule you gotta play by
Has got another feeling it wants to drive away
The wayside is closer every single mile we ride
Crawling through the bowels of the south side
Seven of our soldiers setting out to join the fray

I feel like a weight is gone
And we've made it this far
A song is just a chance to find out what we really are

On and on and on
Once again let the rock and roll live on
Like a wheel bearing down to save the sound we're paid to play
Cuz I'd rather have more time than money

n and on and on
Once again let the rock and roll live on
Like a wheel bearing down to save the sound we're paid to play
Cuz I'd rather have more time than money
Track Name: Feelin' Funky (Got The Heat On)
I got the heat on come on
I wanna take a walk in your city
Find a believer come one
I gotta find out if your ready
Out for the season come on
I know you got a little left to give me
Sound as a reason come one
I wanna know what love can get me

Baby if you're feelin lucky
Come on and take a chance
Show me if you're feelin funky
Let me see you dance

Round up the people come on
I got a better way I can lead em
Wound up your feet and come on
Take another day for your freedom
Proud as a leader come on
I made another friend that I'm keepin
Found where my seat is come on
I got another soul to believe in

Baby if you're feelin lucky
Come on and take a chance
Show me if you're feelin funky
Let me see you dance

I got the heat on come on
I wanna take a walk in your city
Find a believer come one
I gotta find out if your ready
Out for the season come on
I know you got a little left to give me
Sound as a reason come one

Baby if you're feelin lucky
Come on and take a chance
Show me if you're feelin funky
Let me see you dance
