Track Name: Sky Ain't Falling
The Sky Ain't Falling
Ain't no pigs out there learned how to fly
Just cause you're trying your hardest
Don't mean everything gonna be alright

and if you're counting on me to be there don't you bother cause I will not be around

Sometimes those mountains are too high
and some of those seas are a little too rough
i know you're working real hard
but your best ain't good enough

and if you're counting on me to be there don't you bother cause I will not be around
Track Name: Ain't Going Down
Been pushed around ain't gonna take it again
Go on and live your life wretched deep in sin
Now there ain't no way you're gonna keep me around
All your tricks and lies well they all been found and I ain't going down

What you want from me you just go on and steal
The kind of wounds you cause they won't ever heal
Living life your way it's tough to have any friends
Cause all the people you meet they seem to meet their end but I ain't going down

If I hadn't left you I'd be in my grave
Just like all the others that you treat the same
Now I'm living life just the way I should
There's only one can save you That's the good lord and I ain't going down
Track Name: Roamed
For many many years now all you've done is roam
You have chosen your own way never made a home
On you the world has give up them I do not do not blame
They know you for what you are I feel the same

The sun has long long since set on all your hopes and dreams
Only wish that you have now is to die with ease
But for you that will not happen your time is gonna be rough
For all your sins you must pay that is unless you trust
Track Name: Keep On Giving
choke back your pride swallow your pain
hide all your feelings lock them away
just keep on giving it will all go away

avoid any conflict put on a brave face
dont worry about nothing hide your dismay
just keep on giving it will all go away
Track Name: All They Had
There was a boy that I new from school
He didn't care about any of them fools
All that he wanted was to be alone
From the time he got there until it was time to go home
He didn't have a mom he didn't have a dad
Yeah he was all he had

There was a lady who lived up the street
She wanted a friend out of anyone she'd meet
She used to go out late she liked to dance a lot
But the men that were there they didn't think she was hot
She didn't have a man didn't have no kids
Yeah she was all she had

And then there's someone both you and I know
They might even live just right up the road
They'd give you anything just to sit and talk
They'd give you all they have just to go for a walk
They've outlived all their friends they don't have any family
Yeah they are all they had
Track Name: Wizard Of Oz
Come along my people down this yellow brick road
We're gonna meet some others out there that we already know
See there's a lion and a scarecrow and there is a man of tin too
Even got us a pretty little lady with some ruby red shoes
Don't be afraid have no fear we're only dreaming you're not here

First we see a real brave man got nothing but fear
Then we got a scary old guy head is full of air
And there's a rusty old soul with no kind of beat for a heart
All on a trip to the city gonna find that man named Oz
Don't be afraid have no fear you're only dreaming we're not here

Don't be afraid have no fear you're only dreaming we're not here
Track Name: Long Lost Friend
Come gather around me let me tell you a song
About this little girl where my heart did belong
There's something you're gonna need to know about me
I don't go around with my heart out on my sleeve

Now I've got no time for your words not true
If you've come to tell me stories all our time is through
Please don't try and spin or sell me any lies
If you did no wrong you'll need no alibis

I know what you did know right where you been
Don't you give me words about some long lost friend
One last thing to say and my time is through
Better hope he loves you cause I am not your fool
Track Name: Find You
Tell me a story make it the truth
Keep all your lies I'm gonna find you
You tell your tales I heard your dreams
You don't see things baby I have seen
The little old place where you and I go
No one there cares and we're free to roam
So tell me a story make it the truth
Keep all your lies I'm gonna find you

ooh I'm gonna find you if it takes my life

I've seen your anger tasted your tears
chased your demons and calmed your fears
I know your secrets why can't you see
I can be the man you want me to be
One last thing before you go
One last clue baby you should know
So tell me a story make it the truth
Keep all your lies I'm gonna find you

ooh I'm gonna find you if it takes my life
Track Name: Courtesy
Excuse me mister pardon me
Don't want your money don't need nothing free
I can assure you there's more to me than what you see
Just ask that once in your life you treat me like a human being

Treat me like a man I will do you no harm
Look down and call me a name I'll make sure you depart
Respect me as an equal there will be no need for alarm
Just go on and let me be that will be a fine start
Track Name: Faith
Faith in what you can't see is not a lie not to me
You don't need to see don't need to see to believe

You who do not trust have not hope for above
You don't need to see don't need to see to believe
You don't need to see don't need to see to believe

Minds can not think of whats to come to those who love
You don't need to see don't need to see to believe
