Track Name: Protect You
I will protect you
From every evil man
If someone so much as touches you
I’m chopping off his hand
I will protect you
No matter how it goes
If someone so much as smells your hair
I’m slicing off his nose
I’m slicing off his nose
I’m slicing off his nose
I’m slicing off his nose
I will protect you
So baby never fear
If someone so much as hears your voice
I’m tearing off his ears
I will protect you
so head my way and run
If someone so much as tastes your breath
I’m biting out his tongue
I’m biting out his tongue
I’m biting out his tongue
I’m biting out his tongue
I will protect you
from all the liars’ lies
If someone so much as looks your way
I’m spooning out his eyes
I will protect you
He’ll wish that he was dead
The man who tries to make you his
I’m chopping off his head
I’m chopping off his head
I’m chopping off his head
I’m chopping off his head
Track Name: I Used To Be A Wolf
It’s pretty soft, The world I’m in today
If I sound like I’m complaining, Then I should start again
I was hanging out on instinct, The moon just tells me so
If the wind changes direction, Then that’s where I will go
Oh I know why you came here
You’re looking for a better helping hand
But I don’t have that to offer you
You’re out on your own so go and stand
Fangs wear down, And so does the smell of blood
It’s been happening far too often, But my will is good
The fur was darker once, But it’s growing right back to white
I used to take pride in the fact, I could hide in the dead of night
And that’s why you came here
You think the future should be so grand
But there’s nothing left to owe you
The world will ignore all your demands
And that’s why you’re dying
You were never ever built for this
You’re ashamed of all the crying
I think you’ll agree ignorance is bliss
Track Name: Beast Mode
I’m gonna run right through your face
I’m gonna run right through your head
I’m gonna run right through your heart
I’m gonna leave you there for dead
There’s a chance that you might beat me
But I don’t think that you could
You can try though if you want to
But I don’t think that you should
You’re not that good
You’re not that good
You’re not that good
You’re not that good
Over and over and over and over
and over and over again
There’s no way you can take it
You’ll wish that you were dead
You’re not that good
You’re not that good
You’re not that good
You’re not that good
Track Name: A Knight
He runs away from his courage from time to time
Will he sneak away from his strength? Yeah he might
And no he doesn’t ever really want to bleed
But he wants to look just like a knight… he says...
I didn’t lead you into this mess
But I can lead you out
So take a walk, a little time in the sun
Before the moon comes back to ruin all our fun
Track Name: I Know Your Kind
You look like an angel
You look like a queen
You’re among the prettiest things that
I’ve ever seen
You smell like a flower
Oh so divine
But you can’t fool me babe
I know your kind
And, you’re not kind
You’re not kind
I know your kind
I know what your mouth says
I hear every word
Those are some of the kindest things that
I’ve ever heard
You might win me over
If I don’t remind
myself of your past
I know your kind
And, you’re not kind
You’re not kind
I know your kind
You walk on water
From what they say
And I can see how they would think
that you’re okay
Your bright eyes smile
Your face just shines
But I’ll always know the truth
I know your kind
And, you’re not kind
You’re not kind
I know your kind
Track Name: You Were A Lamb
Rolling fields, The smell of home
A brighter season, Than the one you know
From Strength to strength, Growing out and growing up
Never stopping, Because it’s never enough
I saw you when you were a lamb
A purer breed I’ve never seen
Raised from the ground by loving hands
But since then, where have you been?
I feel a need to shelter you
It’s all too little too late
The farm you were on shipped the others out
And you’re so glad to be separate
The field grows down, The weeds climb up
There’s no one here, To help make the cut
From ash to ash, And the same old dust
The young ones moved, got lost in lust
I saw you when you were a lamb
The sun reflected all of your good
I wanted to save you from the farmer’s eye
But I stopped stock still and stood
I let you go into the slaughterhouse
I shook when they shut the gate
I waved from the road because it’s safer there
But you looked back gave me a smile and waved.
Oh I didn’t remember to say bye-bye
bye – bye
O I didn’t remember to say bye-bye
So bye-bye
Goodbye
Track Name: I Want You By My Side
This is the craziest place I’ve ever seen
And it get worse here every day
And yeah I know, I can take it on alone
But I wouldn’t want to do it that way
I want you by my side
While I take on the world
You can shine or you can hide
But I want you by my side
You’re the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen
And you get lovelier every day
And yeah I know, I can take it on alone
But I wouldn’t want to do it that way
I want you by my side
While I take on the world
You can shine or you can hide
But I want you by my side
I want you by my side
While I take on the world
You can shine or you can hide
But I want you by my side
I want you by my side
Track Name: Invert Me
I’ve been sitting on a pretty thin fence
Trying to decide which way to fall
Coming of age sure comes with a lot of baggage
You want my thoughts and that’s your call
So come on
And Invert me
If it’ll help you sleep tonight
Weighing in, swing your fists around
Let off steam so you can see
Kill the engine, let it run right down
You don’t listen to much - but you’ll answer to me
You’ve become a tower, a real mountain man
But the feral eyes are a step too far
I think it’s safe, to put you out of your misery
It’ll just be a little ride in my car
So come on
And Invert me
Opinions should not matter that much to you
So feel free
To desert me
I’ve always been fine on my own that’s true
Track Name: Dynamite
There’s dynamite in your eyes
We’re sitting round a smile for two
I’m not sure what brought you here
But I’m more than happy to see this through
Let’s go out there
See if we can find some friends
But then again I’m not great with people
Does it have to have to be human beings
Oh… I’m trying to see things your way
Oh I’m living for years, On nothing else but your good graces
Doughnuts in her smile
Sugar flying in her hair
Take her back and show her the town
Where you grew from here to there
Oh I’m trying to make a good impression
It’s not aggression
Do you see what I’m saying?
I’m trying to lay it out
I’m trying to stir it up
Take it out of the oven
What is it all about?
The things that I’m trying to see
Took a long trip to a human zoo
If you can then will come with me?
Staring at the cages
Wondering if I’m in there
Looking at the animals in fits and rages
Or birds that miss the air
So come take a walk (with me)
Out through amusement parks
Take a ride on a roller coaster
I’ll have you home before dark
Track Name: The Old Man's Bones
Where do you think the old man died
I’m out looking for his bones
Where would a man like that hide
He’d hide close to home
There’s a pack frame here at the spike camp
that was his I’d bet my life
Air scent ground scent by dusk I’ll find
him and his hunting knife
If you’ve got good reason to leave
You can’t do no better than he
How do you think the old man died
High noon or dead of night
We’ll never know that from his bones
but it wasn’t without a fight
Track Name: You Want A Bottle Of What?
Well say you want a bottle of beer
You’re near and dear to my heart
Or say you want a bottle of wine
Well I guess that’s just fine
But what if they want more? But what if they want more?
Well say you want a bottle of booze
Well we’ve got nothing to lose
But say you want a bottle of mine
And I think you know what you’ll find
But what if they want more? But what if they want more?
Track Name: Take My Hand
Climbin’ a mountain
Take my hand
Crossin’ the river
Take my hand
Fightin’ a dragon
Take my hand
Take my hand,
I’m your man
Take my hand
Track Name: Daytime Vulpine
Sneaking out and catching up
Used to be her thing
But the barbed wire is sharper now
Sprint the roads and tame the cars
You’d know her shape in silhouette
But the smallest things weigh her down
Somehow I feel like she’s giving up
But I don’t think that she’s know it herself
She’s making the change to a life in the day
A vulpine creature in the day time and yes I’m sad to say
She Takes great relief when the danger takes flight
and pretty much tries to get some some sleep in the night time now….
Oh, but how majestic she was
Her feet never touched the ground
She never needed me but I needed her
The change is there and we’ve gone right round
I’m not sure if I’m cut out for this
She needs someone of a different shape
I’m a knight with a shield and not a whole lot more
There’s holes letting light through my cape
And it gets me down
So down
And I think it’s starting to show
So what do you know?
Falling apart for sure
It’s done with little dignity
Watch me burn out
And I’ll return the favour
The younger you would say it’s such a pity
And they’d be right
Track Name: Some of the Wind
Some of the light from the sun
Shined in your eyes when you were young
Some of the wind blew through your hair
Some of the dreams that I had
Drove me so mad
And led me down a path
Nowhere
