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 you worthless cowards
Corrupted scourge of man
The Devil's own puppets
Isis and 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
You'll burn when you die
The innocent will survive...
They'll live forever
God has eyes

He sees you worthless cowards
Corrupted scourge of man
The Devil's own puppets
Isis and the Taliban

While you're burning
For your wicked ways
You will finally see
Evil always pays

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

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 go 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 go 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
So, yeah, I'm gonna 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 were 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

TISHOMINGO ANGEL

I was stranded in a parking lot
When my Angel showed
Bartender took my truck keys
So I had no place to go
And it's a long way home
To Tishomingo

She had a Chevy Silverado
Shining black with chrome
Got out and walked up to me
Whispered "Cowboy you alone?"
Then we were on the road...
To Tishomingo

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Oh, my Angel hails from Texas
And I was born just up the road
Now we live in Johnston county
And my Angel's right at home...
In Tishomingo
~~*~~

I was waiting in that parking lot
Knowing she would show
I'd called her to come get me
When the drinks began to flow
Cause it's a long way home
To Tishomingo

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
No....
It's not fun to travel 
When you're driving all alone
I'd rather have my Angel
Love and laughter on the road
Oh Angel drive me home...
To Tishomingo
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Yeah, my Angel hails from Texas
And I was born just up the road
Now we live in Johnston county
And my Angel's right at home...
In Tishomingo

TRUE LOVE ... A Wedding Song

When little girls read about Prince Charming
He's just a fairy tale fantasy
When young ladies sit in wait
Anticipating their first date
Thinking he's the answer to their dreams
~~*~~
The first touch and the first kiss
Butterflies and tender lips
They think they've got it figured out
Fairy tales torn apart
Lonely tears and broken hearts
That's what growing up is all about
~~*~~
Mmm...
Then comes true love
~~*~~
All the pain fades to the past
Once you find your other half
And know your dreams are coming true
Nothing said or done before
Matters to you anymore 
He's your future, he was meant for you
~~*~~
Before God above...
You vow your true love
~~*~~
On this Blessed, most perfect night
Profess to love him all your life
And he vows, to you, the very same
Joining hands, faced heart to heart
As your life together starts
The true dream, it begins today...
~~*~~
Before God above
You wed your true love
~~*~~

RIGHT NOW... A wedding song

I know right now you're thankful 
You're best friend stands by your side
And I know right now, you've never been so sure
They're the best part of your life

Right now you're walking on the clouds
You're blood's a river fast
Say your vows, and promise to 
Share of love that always lasts
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Let right now be the feelings
That you carry through your days
When things may get a little rough
And life brings with it...change
No matter what you do don't hurt
The one who believes your vows
Remember
Always remember
Right Now
~~*~~

I know right now you're praying
Thanking God that you're so blessed
And I know right now there will be times
He'll unfold to you his tests

I believe that there is nothing
You and he can't overcome
Right now, as you merge the two
Separate lives as one

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Let right now be the feelings
That you carry through your days
When things may get a little rough
And life brings with it...change
No matter what you do don't hurt
The one who believes your vows
Remember
Always remember
Right Now

MUSIC WAS GOOD

This little girl 
When she was born
Did not sit quiet
Did not conform
The only thing she understood
Was music
Yeah, music was good

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Played the rungs from in the crib
Snapped her fingers laying in her bed
Danced everywhere her feet did walk
Yeah, this little girl was born to rock
The best of her childhood....
Was music
Yeah, music was good
~~*~~

This little girl 
When she left home
Was young and lost
And quite alone
But running through her royal blood
Was music
And music was good

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
She called to it
It called to her
It defined her to the core
She didn't need
The fates to bleed
Her courage anymore
Rise above she would
With music
And her music was good
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Played the rungs from in the crib
Snapped her fingers laying in her bed
Danced everywhere her feet did walk
Yeah, this little girl was born to rock
The best of her childhood....
Was music
Yeah, music was good
~~*~~

LET THE TEARS FLOW

When your body's hurting
When memories are so vivid
They feel like the here and now

When all the tears you've fought 
Are tired of being held back
They'll cease to remember what's allowed

And they will flow...

~~~*Chorus*~~~
They'll relieve your hurting body
By the time that they are spent
The deepest sleep awaits you
You can heal if you relent
Tears are not a sign of weakness
But a cleansing way to grow
Something you will know
If you let them flow
~~*~~

Through pain, you cursed the whole world
Held it inside, damn the cost
Felt it was your right, yes you did

But things did not get better
And you finally realized
Bitter's not a way that you should live

It's no way to live

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
When you cage the right to grieve
Feel so angry you can't breathe
Refuse to sleep, so you won't dream
Become resentful, cold, and mean
There's a different way, you know
Do not fight them, let them go
Yeah... Oh Yeah...
Let the tears flow
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
They'll relieve your hurting body
By the time that they are spent
The deepest sleep awaits you
You can heal if you relent
Tears are not a sign of weakness
But a cleansing way to grow
Something you will know
If you let them flow
~~*~~

Let the tears flow...

SILENT WALL

When did you leave me baby
Tell me, where did you go
When did you leave me baby
Why are you crying so

Lord, did someone hurt you
If so, can you tell me
Don't you love me anymore
Oh, baby tell me please

~~~*Chorus*~~
About to rock that boat you're sitting in
Shake it so hard you'll be forced to swim
Smash it up against the rocks
Rattle your heart, and spill your thoughts
Girl you'd better talk to me
Tell me
Tell me baby please
Where you've gone
And why did you leave
~~*~~

I've drawn you a nice warm bath
And I've laid out your clothes
You have to speak to someone
I can't fix you alone

There's no communication
Cause you won't talk at all
I'm tired of running into
Your silence, like a wall

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Is there a secret weapon 
That is needed to break through
Indifference, desperation, 
In this ghost who looks like you
Tell me how to find a way 
To erase the line you've drawn
When I don't know where to look
When I don't know where you've gone
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~
About to rock that boat you're sitting in
Shake it so hard you'll be forced to swim
Smash it up against the rocks
Rattle your heart, and spill your thoughts
Girl you'd better talk to me
Tell me
Tell me baby please
Where you've gone
And why did you leave
~~*~~

~~~*Finale*~~~
Baby, where have you gone
Girl just come back to me
Can't find you where you are
Oh, why did you leave
~~*~~

JUST A DREAM

Let the rain disguise my tears
The thunder mask the screams
I didn't need him anyway
He    was    just    a    dream

Winds tantalize my fingers
As they reach up for the sky
Release to it the reasons
I believed I had to cry
~~*~~
Now watch the sunrise
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The scarlet red's the blood I shed
But it won't last too long
When the sun is high
Up in that sky
It means that I've moved on
I am free
So free...
He was just a dream
~~*~~

White clouds gently drifting
Beckon to my weary being
A deceptive illusion
Like his claims of love for me

Clouds can't hold my body
Release made me see
Their mist is not substantial
Like him, they're just a dream

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
Just a dream that I was living
Chasing every promise spoke
Stepped outside and called the forces
Raised my hands and let them go
Now it's time...
To watch the sunrise
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The scarlet red's the blood I shed
But it won't last too long
When the sun is high
Up in that sky
It means that I've moved on
I am free
So free...
He was just a dream
~~*~~
Ooh...
~~ Just a dream~~

KNOCK ON ANOTHER'S DOOR

I don't sit around, playing house
When life is happening right outside
And if you don't want to join me
I will not hang on you and cry

I won't call you every minute
 I don't need you to checking in
I'm your lover, not your Mother
Don't have to tell me where you've been

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I am not a fool for love
The mushy touchy feely thing that girls speak of
I'm not the kind of woman to lose my head
Think we can solve a problem
 with some time in bed
So if that's what you're looking for...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

You do not have to share your past
Unless it pertains to me
For every detail left behind
Is right where it should be

But I must know I can trust you
No, deceit won't be ignored
Think about it, and if I can't
Knock on another's door

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
I don't play games like a little girl
You won't be the center of my whole word
I will respect you, yeah I'll treat you right
You'll know that you're loved each and every night
Now,  if you need something more...
Knock on another's door
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I am not a fool for love
The mushy touchy feely thing that girls speak of
I'm not the kind of woman to lose my head
Think we can solve a problem
 with some time in bed
So if that's what you're looking for...
Knock on another's door

IF I COULD

I keep hearing that it will get better
That it is always darkest with the night
Come the dawn, everything looks brighter
My will to live shall rally for the fight
You're telling me I am not alone here
There's always someone I just have to look
Don't you know that I've become too weary
I'd have already done so if I could

~~~*Chorus*~~~
If I could...
I would see the best of what is here
If I could
I wouldn't be lonely, so damned strangled
By my fears
I know I should..
I should see the beauty, please believe me 
I would... 
I would if I could
~~*~~

When you tell me I am being selfish
Not to say that I'm leaving you again
I know that you Love me and you'll miss me
But even that can't measure with this pain
You say that you don't understand me
I can't explain when I am just as blind
All I know is that to end this misery
I've got to go and leave this life behind

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
If I could wave a magic wand
Clean out the depths of me
I'd blow apart the desperation
And I'd set the laughter free
Right now everything that's wonderful and good...
Has escaped me
And  I would bring it back if I could
Oh...If I could
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
If I could...
I would see the best of what is here
If I could
I wouldn't be lonely, so damned strangled
 By my fears
I know I should..
I should see the beauty, please believe me 
I would... 
I would if  I could

TWITTER ATTITUDE

He followed me on twitter
So I followed him back
Had to block that sucker
He was talking too much smack
And I don't do... 
Twitter attitude

When someone makes a comment
That comes off as downright mean
My reply's a big goodbye
Buddy you don't interest me
Cause I don't do...
Twitter attitude

~~~*Chorus*~~~
When I get online
Want to unwind
It's nice to hear or read
An awesome song
Family being strong
Tweets from celebrities 
Don't like the crude
Naked butts and boobs
Filthy words and just plain rude
Cause I don't do...
Twitter attitude
~~*~~

The people that I follow
They are real and speak their minds
Out to help their Brothers
Stay in touch with a reply
If you're honest, and you follow
Well, then I will add you too
But I don't do...
Twitter attitude

~~~*Chorus*~~~
When I get online

Biz Stone and Noah Glass
Thank you guys for twitter
For five years I've had a blast
I am a fan of many
And with twitter I can see
Feelings, pics, and tours
Of some great celebrities
It really rocks, that I can block
The creeps, and jerks and fools
Cause I don't do...
Twitter attitude

THE WAY LIFE SHOULD BE

Mmm mm mm
So close beside you
Deep in your dreams
You reach for me
Whisper my name
My tears falling
This is the way
That life should be

I close my eyes
You softly breathing
Find my own dreams
Mmm there you are
And you love me
Up in the white clouds
Passion unbound
Beneath the stars

~~~*Chorus*~~~
In the early morning hours
Leave our dreams and make it real
All day working, while I'm thinking
Just how right he makes me feel
And every moment we're apart
Oh, he's still a part of me
This is the way
It's the only way...
That life should be
~~*~~

Mmm mm mm
Back home together
Love overflows
When our eyes meet
You say my name
Sounds so pretty
This is the way
That life should be

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
There's no fighting, there's no judging
I'm his woman, He's my man
Only loving, and supporting
Praise each other all we can
We are lovers, we are friends
Share the same goals and our dreams
All because...
This is the way...
That life should be
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
In the early morning hours
Leave our dreams and make it real
All day working, while I'm thinking
Just how right he makes me feel
And every moment we're apart
Oh, he's still a part of me
This is the way
It's the only way...
That life should be

MONDAYS WERE THE BLUES

Mama liked Skynyrd and the Rolling Stones 
She'd play their records so we could dance 
Daddy came home and pulled out his guitar
Our nights ended with some Johnny Cash
Grew up with the Eagles and Charlie Pride
Mixing up the artists and their tunes
Come Monday
Every Monday
Mondays were the blues

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Elmore James
T-bone Walker
Janis Joplin, B.B.King
John Lee Hooker
 Otis Redding
And Billie Holiday...
Mondays were cool
Never suffered through
Mondays
Cause Mondays were the blues
~~*~~

Family never fought for the radio
Every station offered something fine
We all sang along with most anything
Loved the music eating up the miles

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
We mourned a loss
Like they were our best friends
Though their music would keep shining through
It broke our hearts
We realized the cost
They would never create something new
Thank God for Mondays
Oh, Mondays were the blues
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
Elmore James
T-bone Walker
Janis Joplin, B.B.King
John Lee Hooker
Muddy Waters
And Billie Holiday...
Mondays were cool
Never suffered through
Mondays
Cause Mondays were the blues

THERAPY

She was playing with some children
wilted flowers as her crown
A necklace of dandelions
And her blue jeans for a gown
There was laughter,There was dancing
Lord, I wanted to join in 
It was like something from a dream
The way that she played with them

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I don't need no therapy
No costly mental hug
Just saw some real-life happiness
Buddy that is good enough
I can't find a better reason 
To quit whining and feel good
All the laughing, and the dancing
Found its way into my blood
The goodness I can see...
New therapy
~~*~~
They were walking down their driveway
Two old people holding hands
Not that far to reach their mailbox
But I've come to understand

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
As life speeds by, if you rage and cry
About every little thing
You'll never know, that if you took it slow
How amazing it could be 
You've got to get, some true happiness
Before you can finally see...
It's real-life stuff, when you laugh and love
The best kind of therapy
~~*~~
~~~*Chorus*~~~
I don't need no therapy
No costly mental hug
Just saw some real-life happiness
Buddy that is good enough
I can't find a better reason 
To quit whining and feel good
All the laughing, and the dancing
Found its way into my blood
The goodness I can see...
New therapy

AND LIFE BEGINS

He found her...
Dancing in shadows
Trying to hide
In the smokey haze

She found him...
Paying for glances
Fighting to chase
Emptiness away

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The lonely find love
And their life changes
Drawn to each other
Through a sea of faces
Filling the deep voids
They've become lost in 
The lonely find love
And life begins
~~*~~

He kissed her...
Starving for worship
He was so lost
She brought him home

She kissed him...
Felt his needs find hers
Draw her back from
Where anguish roams

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
We're not meant to travel through this life alone
Everybody needs a body that they can hold
To love and laugh with, to give love freely...
Without it, life has not begun, you're lonely
So lonely
Find somebody, and begin to live
When the lonely find love...
Life begins
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
The lonely find love
And their life changes
Drawn to each other
Through a sea of faces
Filling the deep voids
They've become lost in 
The lonely find love
And life begins
