Track Name: Moon
Every year, midst of june
Completely out of the blue
The singin’s out of tune
Howlin' is all I can do

Lord, Save my Soul
I put my theeth in anything alive
Save my Soul
I put my teeth in anything

And I howl
At the bloody moon
And I scream – Hey!
Red bloody moon

Old man told me to fight
Drown the beast inside
A frenzy down the liquor store
Only got me wantin' more

Lord, help me through hell
I drank so much I just can't stand upright
Help me through hell
I drank so much I just can't stand

And I howl
At the bloody moon
And I scream – Hey!
Red bloody moon

Howlin' at the bloody moon
Howlin' at the lightnin' moon
Howlin' at the blood red moon
Howlin' at the bloody moon
Howlin' at the lightnin' moon
Howlin' at the blood red moon
Track Name: Cannon Fodder
So we meet again
oh my good old long lost friend
You and I, we know the roles are turned around

I would compromise
Although the man thinks otherwise
So clean your guns and buy your powder by the pound

Point your guns don't hesitate
The ones you love, the ones you hate
And then they come screamin' from above
The ones you hate, the ones you love

Lone and left to die
Forgot to remember why
The will is gone and they're a long, long way from home

Point your guns don't hesitate
The ones you love, the ones you hate
And then they come screamin' from above
The ones you hate, you love

Blood is lost but close to end
Don't forget to be a man
Clean your guns and claim your land
Don't forget to keep on rollin'

______________________________________________________

Point your guns don't hesitate
The ones you love, the ones you hate
And then they come screamin' from above
The ones you hate, the ones you love

Blood is lost but close to end
Don't forget to be a man
Clean your guns and claim your land
Don't forget to keep on

Point your guns don't hesitate
The ones you love, the ones you hate
And then they come screamin' from above
The ones you hate, the ones you love

Blood is lost but close to end
Don't forget to be a man
Clean your guns and claim your land
Don't forget to keep on

Rollin’
Track Name: Rollin' Back
...and the sky turns white at night
Oceans color, red
Blood will come down, from clouds, overhead
Ooh, i'd rather stay in bed

I’ve got these broken bones
Twenty-one and countin’
If they don’t leave me alone
I’m gonna jump off the mountain

Rollin' Back the days
In bad hallucination
Of a zombie nation
Fear of evil eyes
You can't run away
If it's everywhere

I’ve got these broken bones
Twenty-one and countin’
If they don’t leave me alone
I’m gonna jump off the mountain
Track Name: The Gods Demand
Little graceful, eyes to the ground and shy
She knows what, and when but don’t know why

The Gods Demand
For furtile land
Say a prayer, and toss her into the fire

She said: ‘are you for real?
You got to be jokin’ man
I’m way too young and sweet to die’

Girl is gone but the tribe remains alive
Track Name: Radar IV
So big and spinnin' round the sun,
our Goldilocks place world
Our little place that we call home,
lovely planet earth

Feel the winds and feel the rain,
feel 'em in your hair
What do you mean when you tell me,
you do not really care

Shut your mouth and shut your eyes,
feel the sunny rays
Set it free and break the ties,
livin' lonely days

(When) there's no wind and there's no rain,
you need no clothes to wear
One hundred thousand miles an hour,
and nothing in the air
Track Name: Greater Low
Zombie love you come on down
You know the folks are out of town

When the clock strikes twelve
There is no one else
It’s just you and me
So let’s just see

What happens

Now

Forest tree hits the ground
No one hears is make a sound

When the clock strikes twelve
There is no one else
It’s just you and me
So let’s just see

What happens

Now
Track Name: Rats
Dig for love, love is gold
I wanna grow but not grow old
You won’t believe, things I’ve seen
Rats on methamfetamine wow,

You tell your lord to shut his mouth
Pack his bags and go down south
Watch out for the things I said and,
Get out of my way, I’m a rambler, yeah

In dispute with Morocco Mole
So grab that shovel, and dig a hole
When your feet get wet and your head goes green
Pump up the water, with a steam machine

So, you tell your lord to shut his mouth
Pack his bags and go down south
Watch out for the things I said and,
Get out of my way, I’m a rambler, woo!
Track Name: Nope (A Leader Insane)
Eons ago
Long before the sun
Before the rain

Nobody heard
A woman gave birth
To a baby insane

It growled like a beast
And not in the least
He was breathing no air

While seasons passed by
The kid couldn’t die
He’s out here somewhere

And is there somebody out there
Who can speak his mind
A leader for all the people
When all the people are blind

Black eyed and blue
Fallin’ to pieces
I need some glue

The place was strange
The folks were wicked
I was glad I saw you there

And is there somebody out there
Who can speak his mind
A leader for all the people
When all the people are blind
(2x)
Track Name: Passport With A Moonstamp
So I’ll go and leave behind
All I’ve ever known
Leave the path of certainty
A world in which we’re thrown

Let me kiss the stratosphere
And cross the thin blue line
I can see my house from here
And bend the space and time

I got a passport to the moon
Soon I will be flying
All the flowers are in bloom
While the daffodils are dying

Blinded by a bright black sky
I see your skin and bone
Makes me think of times I’ve had
By myself, but not alone

I got a passport to the moon
Soon I will be flying
All the flowers are in bloom
While the daffodils are dying
(2x)

I got a passport to the moon
(4x)
Track Name: Turn & Burn
1. Screamin' all you can, hear no sound
2. Fallin' from the sky, hit the ground
3. Layin on the floor, so I found
4. Flippin' back and forth, turn around

5. Being on your own, lock the door
6. All the things I gave, are no more
7. Gotta let it go, waiting for
8. Me to leave the show, soft at core


Gotta Let It Go, Turn and Burn
