I KNEW HIM

He walks along the road
Looking for spare change
Cans and bottles 
That he can trade
His clothes are dirty
And his shoes are taped
I know him..
I know his face

~~~*Chorus*~~~
He's her baby boy
Her only Son
And he breaks her heart
Like no one
Like no one else can do...
Wish I could show him
Show him what he puts her through
~~*~~

You would never know
He's only twenty one
His eyes are old
From the drugs he's done
His mind is jaded
No his thoughts aren't clear
I know him..
Here come the tears

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Her heart gets weaker every single day
She begs him to come home
Prays that he will change
But he looks right through her
Like she isn't there
He runs away
Too gone to care
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
He's her baby boy
Her only Son
And he breaks her heart
Like no one
Like no one else can do...
Wish I could show him
Show him what he puts her through
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
Wish I could save him
Shake him, make him aware...
I knew him
Knew him before
Before he went out there
I knew him...
~~*~~

GOD HAS EYES

Only Cowards rape women
Kill innocent children
Tuck their tails to run and hide...

Oh , but God has eyes

Only demons spread terror
Can still look in the mirror
And not see something vile...

Oh, but God has eyes

He sees the cowards
The scourge of man
The Devil's puppets
The Taliban

Only Cowards destroy life
Think that it's their right
Take their own so they won't pay...

Let me set you straight

You are nothing
We will all survive
We'll live forever

Oh...God has eyes

He sees you cowards
The scourge of man
The Devil's puppets
The Taliban

While you're burning
For your wicked ways
Just remember
Evil always pays

Yes there's a price...
God has eyes

Mourning the brutal 
attacks of the innocent
So many broken hearts...

GOD'S KIND

The scavengers they feasted
And when the feed was done
The Devil moaned, for evil bones
Left bleaching in the sun

A reign of terror ended
So the Devil's on the hunt
Lock your doors, get blessed before
The setting of the sun

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Memorize the Good Book
Pray to protect yourselves
The Devil, he is on the hunt
And his prey goes straight to Hell
His evil quest
Begins at sunset
~~*~~

A young man was out preaching
To people of the street
The Devil neared, to sniff out fear
And backed off in defeat

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
He sensed a power greater
Than he could ever hope to be
Felt a fire burning hotter
Than the Hell of his retreat
He walked on by...
Just a waste of time...
Didn't even try...
With God's kind
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Memorize the Good Book
Pray to protect yourselves
The Devil, he is on the hunt
And his prey goes straight to Hell
His evil quest
Begins at sunset
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
You shall find
You'll be just fine
When you're God's Kind
Mmm
God's kind
~~*~~

BE THE RAIN

I don't want to be the jet stream 
That is trailing through the skies
Others reach their destinations
While I'm always left behind

I don't want to be the run-off
Always keeping gutters full
I'd rather be the gentle rain
That helps to make things grow

I'm going to fight
Fight to obtain
What I need...
To be the rain

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Lord please let my life reflect
I've worked hard and done my best
That love always comes to mind
When I do...
Help me to find
Yeah...
Find a way to be the rain for you...
~~*~~

I don't want to be here useless 
Something fallow in the fields
But a crop that feeds the hungry
And sustains all with the yield

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
I want to do more than just exist
Gotta fight for this
It's the only way...
The only way to be the rain
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Lord please let my life reflect
I've worked hard and done my best
That love always comes to mind
When I do...
Help me to find
Yeah...
Find a way to be the rain for you...
~~*~~

YOU WERE HER LIFE (a duet)

1st verse
 #1
On a lone stone bench
Centered in the park
By a maple tree
Where your name is carved

2nd verse #1
This is where she sits
This is where she cries
We all know her here
We don't ask her why

~~~*Chorus *~~~
*We don't ask her why
They don't ask me why
*She can't get on with her life
I can't get on with my life
*We all know her life was you...
They all know my life was you...
*We don't even try
They don't even try
Look away, and walk on by
*Like she needs us to do
Like I need them to do
*Until she works it through
Until I work it through
~~*~~
3rd verse
 #2
A dark gray casket
Brought you home to me
Sealed up tightly
No way I could see

4th verse
 #2
Touch your handsome face
Touch you one last time
Prove you're really gone
Oh, you are my life

~~~*Lyrical Bridge *~~~
*I wish that she could settle for
I wish that I could settle for
*Your image in her mind
Your image in my mind
*Touching, laughing, crying
*The day you said goodbye
The day we said goodbye
# 1 
Desire kissed insanity
She embraced it like a fool
#2 
I needed proof...
(faded)
 I needed proof...
~~*~~

~~*Finale*~~ 
both
*It's going to take time
Oh, all I need is time
*To reconstruct her life
To reconstruct my life
Oh...
*You were her life
You were my life
~~*~~

NOBODY SLAYS A DRAGON LIKE YOU DO

Nobody slays a dragon like you do
You hop on board, wielding your sword
And then you run em through
Nobody slays a dragon like you do

No one evades the enemy like you
You sneak on by, Let arrows fly
And they don't have a clue
No one destroys the enemy like you

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I miss ya buddy, would you please come play
Take her to dinner on a different day
Cause when you're gone, man I always die
Throw my controller, break down and cry
I'll beg ya buddy, if you want me to
Nobody slays a dragon like you do
~~*~~

Other players don't share lives like you do
They hog em all, just let me fall
Don't care that I am screwed
Nobody gives their lives to me like you

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
This flipping game
Drives me insane
That's it, I'm done, I'm through
I ran over
My controller
And I am cussing you
~~*~~

(Shout)...I DIDN'T MEAN IT!

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I miss ya buddy, would you please come play
Take her to dinner on a different day
Cause when you're gone, man I always die
Throw my controller, break down and cry
I'll beg ya buddy, if you want me to
Nobody slays a dragon like you do
~~*~~
Hello?  
Buddy? 
Pick up would ya?
Hey man log on!
Hello?
~~*~~
(Crying...)

THIS IS YOUR MAN

This is your man
I pack a gun
I don't want to use it
Don't want to hurt no one
But someone might
Threaten what's mine
I will shoot them for it
And I won't blink an eye

~~*~~
On the table
No hidden hand
This is your man
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
This is your man
Heart bared to you
Before the rings 
Are put in place
Before you say I do
Know me, Love me
The good and bad
This is your man
~~*~~

This is your man
I like to drink
I don't over do it
I can still talk and think
But I kick back
I love to laugh
Life can be quite stressful
Sure you can do the math

~~*~~
On the table
No hidden hand
This is your man
~~*~~

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~ 
If there is something you want to change
You might want to try it now
Cause once those rings are slid in place
There's no more of that allowed
I love ya babe, but I like myself
Now if ya want this fellas hand
Know I mean it...
This is your man
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
This is your man
Heart bared to you
Before the rings 
Are put in place
Before you say I do
Know me, Love me
The good and bad
This is your man
~~*~~
