Track Name: Judgement Day
I've turned 'em on and I've turned 'em out
Made 'em scream and made 'em shout
All in an evil game
Made no sense, had no shame

I kept a life hidden way out of sight
Knew it was wrong, thought I was right
If only I'd looked in the mirror
At what I was, where I'd been delivered

I stand here naked before you
With all my sin and my lies
There was no way I could warn you
About my love of goodbyes

Oh... watch me blow my life away
Oh... I'm wonderin' what it is I might say
When the end comes down

Will I rise up and call to my mother
Will I fall down and pray
You know I've heard some talk that the devil might take me
I guess I'll be on that line
Come Judgement Day

It kept me high and it kept me blind
To all the hurt I would leave behind
You know it seems like the right thing to say
I never meant to hurt you in any way

I keep a light at my front door
So the world knows I'm home
I give it all but they want more
But I must do this alone

Oh... watch me blow my life away
Oh... I'm wonderin' what it is I might say
When the end comes down

Will I rise up and call to my mother
Will I fall down and pray
You know I've heard some talk that the devil might take me
I guess I'll be on that line
Come Judgement Day....
Track Name: Roller Coaster
I got you to make my tears flow
I got you to make my fears grow
I got you baby to push my hands away
Laugh in my face and then you walk away from me

You got me, I guess you wonder why
You got me to hang you out to dry
You got me darlin' to shove your heart around
Show no respect I just lay your love way down

It's just the love that hurts but only when we breathe
We're on the dry outskirts of a place we find hard to leave

It's a Roller Coaster of a life
Up and down spinning round
It's a Roller Coaster such a thrill
No one does it like we do and no one ever will

And when the bell sounds and the seconds leave the ring
It's just you and me we're doin' our thing

It's a Roller Coaster of a life
Up and down spinning round
It's a Roller Coaster such a thrill
No one does it like we do and no one ever will
Track Name: Neon Love
Civilised and sensible
Highly indispensable
Totally dependable
When they're on their game

Comfortable inscrutable
Satisfying and suitable
Faultlessly indisputable
When they're on their game

When they put out what they've got
It's hard to still my mind
It's a rare obsession with a fine profession
And everyone's so kind

I'm in love.... Neon Love
Yes it's love.... Neon Love

Eminently qualified
Effortlessly by your side
Take you for that special ride
When they're on their game

There's a big mirror ball and it just keeps on spinning out
A thousand different dreams
I catch the smell of some French perfume
And I'm bustin' at the seams

I'm in love.... Neon Love
Yes it's love.... Neon Love

I've got the face it's in the frame
Another space another name... oh yeah

So they au revoir and kiss the air
As they fade to black from my awkward stare
I turn my head to a rainy night
Doors closed now they're out of sight
From my eyes only as the memory stays
It's up on the street and I'm on my way
Back to the sideshow and all it's freaks
Hey this is love I'll be back next week

I'm in love.... Neon Love
Yes it's love.... Neon Love...
Track Name: ZOOM
I live in the darkness I walk through the night
Not much impresses me not much makes me feel alright
I feed on a feeling I drink from a sight
I live for those moments when I fall into the light

I was busy just a livin' my life away... on my own
Then I got a message and I should say
I'm comin' home

And I go ZOOM when she walks into a room
ZOOOOOOOM.... ZOOM
Yes I go ZOOM when she walks into a room
ZOOOOOOOM...

I live with my feelings and I cope with my fears
I played lifes solitaire and sometimes I've played it in tears
But then I'm lifted up and the sky just ain't high enough
She asks the questions of me and I answer with a sigh

You know I had a vision that came to me one long night
In the arms of a woman who made me see
What was right

And I go ZOOM when she walks into a room
ZOOOOOOOM.... ZOOM
Yes I go ZOOM when she walks into a room
ZOOOOOOOM...

I've been searchin'
I've been searchin' oh yeah
I've been searchin'......

And I go ZOOM when she walks into a room
ZOOOOOOOM.... ZOOM
Yes I go ZOOM when she walks into a room
ZOOOOOOOM...
Track Name: Why Can't We Just Be Real
Well I saw the moon and there was no time
To keep the tide from going down
And my shadow moved beyond my shape
And I was raised above the ground

So I rose above the city lights
And the people were exposed
But I kept my head and I did it right
And many questions were posed

Why do we love and why do we hate
Why do we kill and steal
If there is a god why do so many people cry
Why can't we just be real

Well I saw mothers weep and children wail
I saw men who didn't care
And I saw politicians please themselves
And their nests were rarely bare

So the masses bowed and prayed to god
To help their souls be clean
But the truth is there with a wink and a nod
And refuses to be seen

So why do we love and why do we hate
Why do we kill and steal
If there is a god why do so many people cry
Why can't we just be real

Oh all this time and nothing much has moved
There's a madness in this life that takes us down
We take a part but if it suits us we don't know
So we play it in the dark til someone turns the lights on

Well there's a time and place for all to pass
But the man says we can't fly
So there's a long and lonely road ahead
Keep walkin' don't ask why

Why do we take and why do we beg
Why not say how we feel
If there is a time for love it's now
Why Can't We Just Be Real..
Track Name: My Old Guitar
I've got this feeling
I'll try to explain
It's like a firework going off inside my brain
It's the words
And it's the tunes
It's my music that can take me to the moon
Oh yeah...

I've got this spirit
In my hands
And a dream that keeps me making my own stand
Sometimes I'm tired
I get so beat
My Old Guitar it keeps me standing on my feet

And so I ride these groovy wheels
Never know which way that they may turn
I only know it's real
Nothin' dare keep me down
Cause while I'm rollin' with lifes punches
I just play my 'tar and sing my cares away

Some say there's heaven
Some say there ain't
I'd rather make one here on earth than have to wait
I wear it like a golden ring
I thank my heaven every chance I get to sing

And so I ride these groovy wheels
Never know which way that they may turn
I only know it's real
Nothin' dare keep me down
Cause while I'm rollin' with lifes punches
I just play my 'tar and sing my cares away.....
Track Name: Move On
I'm over keeping all the love I have away from harm
You know I know it really doesn't matter
But there's something in the air and I don't like the smell of it
Face it, wise up, it only takes some courage
Move On

It's such a pity when two people who are really hip
Make a call that ends something they thought they had
But things are changin' every minute every hour
With long days and longer nights nothin' seems to work
Move On
I've got to Move On

In my mind I turn to the person
Who once would complete my life
But when you're living alone
You learn a lot about you

Yes you do...

And like an insect to a flame I kept returning to the neat and the
light that was blinding me from what was real
I learned a lesson when I realised that love can be the one thing
that hurts.... when it really shouldn't

There was always someone strong to lean on
In my former life
But when you're living alone
You learn a lot about you

Yes you do...

So there I was in a room filled with voices
And they would not be silent and they screamed and cried
I tried to beat my fists against the walls but they were moving
Out and away until I was free

I turned the key and opened the door to my
ever changing life
But when you're living alone you sure do learn
When you live alone you sure do learn
When you're living alone
You learn a lot about you...
Track Name: Vandalise Love
I can't sleep in that bed no more
It's just so empty on one side
And I can't walk thought that park no more
It always takes me for a ride

And I don't want to go nowhere
Anywhere that makes me stare
Into the eyes of what might have been

I realise I Vandalise Love

I don't drive down that street no more
Cause that street ain't got no signs for me
And I can't play those songs no more
Cause I know they're just not mine

You see I don't have that much
That I can see or touch
That don't remind me of our time together

I realise I Vandalise Love

The only words I sing are sad
The only dreams I have are bad
I'll try again tomorrow and see if I can smile
I wonder is there anyone
Can there be someone for me
Is it what I need or do I just be free

Lonely days turn to lonely nights
Lonely nights turn me to stone
You know I wonder how I'll be
If I'm left out here alone

Cause I can tell you why
Why it is I'll never try
to give my heart away again

You see I realise how I Vandalise Love
Track Name: Your World
You know the last time I tried
I stumbled and I fell and then I lied
It's OK is what I said
And I wandered down a pathway in my head

You know the last time I moved
I punched the air and tried so hard to prove
It's OK I've been misled
And I wandered down a pathway in my head
Yes I wandered down a pathway in my head

Tell me some lies and I won't be surprised
When you step in my space
Your World is etched upon my face

You know the last time I cried
I staked my heart out in the sun to fry
It's OK it's what I've read
And I escaped onto the pathway in my head

You know the last time I learned
I watched a man with a message as he burned
It's OK his good book said
And he joined me on the pathway in my head
Yes he joined me on the pathway in my head

It's a mood it's a feeling
That send my senses reeling all over the place
Your World is etched upon my face

All this time I was looking for love
But there's something that gets in my way
Inside my head there's a pathway that keep me
Safe in my longing clear in whatever I say

You know the last time I smiled
I wondered if it really was worthwhile
I said hey as my smile fled
And I chased it down the pathway in my head

You know the last time I died
There was a woman right there with me by my side
It's OK he's only dead
And she led down a pathway in her head
Yes she led me down a pathway in her head

You're telling me why and it's making me cry
But I take it with grace
Your World is etched upon my face...

All this time I been looking for love
All this time I been looking for love
All this time I been looking for love
All this time...
Track Name: Blind Faith
I met a woman on a train to where I'll never know
She told me jokes she shared her coke she called herself a ho
She tied a purple scarf around my neck and said
No doubt about it boy I'd rather be here than dead

Hey.... This is what I say
Hey.... It's the great white way

I carved a name into a seat in a city park
I couldn't read the name I wrote because it was so dark
I left a message with a drunk to get in touch with me
I haven't heard from him I guess he's getting on nicely

Hey.... This is what I say
Hey.... It's the great white way

I looked down at a man and he looked right back up at me
He couldn't frown he couldn't smile this man could hardly see
Where was he from, what as his name, how did he reach this place
I'll never know, but I think he's keeping me a space

Hey.... This is what I say
Hey.... It's the great white way

I wave the flag of hope I wave it with sincerity
I run it up the pole and see how it comes back
They tear it down they burn it up they keep it in it's place
Seems the only true vision
Is My Blind Faith....

I took a journey on a highway that was thick with dust
A native man said he was dying I said if you must
The moon was bright it shone its light directly onto him
He looked alive he gave me five and checked out with his sin

Hey.... This is what I say
Hey.... It's the great white way

I've tried love, I've tried hate, I've tried solitude
I found the reason for my being was ineptitude
I keep my distance from the population generally
I find it easier than livin' with society

Hey.... This is what I say
Hey.... It's the great white way

I wave the flag of hope I wave it with sincerity
I run it up the pole and see how it comes back
They tear it down they burn it up they keep it in it's place
Seems the only true vision
Is My Blind Faith....
My Blind Faith....
Track Name: Black and White
I wish the world was Black and White
I want all day to be all night
I wish the sun would move away
And leave me space to play
In a world that's black and white and grey

I see a street light in a lane
I see them huddled in the rain
I want to set their colours free
And watch them sail upon a sea
That rolls in black and white and grey...hey....

We all roll around like crazy coloured balls
Bouncing off each other and the walls
I separate from the pack
I place my cue into the rack
And take my leave in black and white and grey

It's a rich man that doesn't see
A street man on his knees
Life's a fountain filled with blood
Champagne served with mud
Better viewed in black and white and grey...hey...
