Track Name: The Preacher
Here I go thinking I could conquer the world with my boots on
Found myself banking on a whim that I could carry my roots on
So here I am stranded ,with no gas, out here somewhere in Tuscon
Arizona sun, got a white flag waving a truce on

I should have listened to my mamma
should have listened to the words
should have listened to my daddy
not a word could be heard
should have listened to the preacher
should have honored my word
well i'd be sitting pretty, air conditioned,cruse control out of this world

Instead i'v got sand in my boots and i'm fighting a sunburn
got my wires crossed when i wavered somewhere back at a u-turn
And there's a vulture flying over dropping' hints I resemble a big worm
so i'm thumbing a ride for the house to tell my daddy what i'v learned

I should have listened to my mamma
should have listened to the words
should have listened to my daddy
not a word could be heard
should have listened to the preacher
should have honored my word
well i'd be sitting pretty, air conditioned,cruse control out of this world
Track Name: Dirty Days
Daylight shines in the darkest hours
Man on the run
who are you running from, gunning from
Move ahead with your futile plans
theirs blood on your hands
go and get you some, dirty fun
won't take long until they understand
your the kind of man that they can not comprehend

Guns and lives and
lifeless eyes
are all just a part of your busy day
watching you, your in my sights
Turn your dirty days
in to sleepless nights

Take that call it's your next big fall
who's on the line
who you talking to, talking to
you don't know, it's your last surprise
but a mans gonna do, what he's got to do
won't take long until they understand
your the kind of man that they can not comprehend

Guns and lives and
lifeless eyes
are all just a part of your busy day
watching you, your in my sights
Turn your dirty days
in to sleepless nights
Track Name: Longer
Have you forgot to laugh
at my lazy disposition
Have I just begun to cramp your style
Humiliate the clown
dismantle my condition
ignoring all the things that have made me proud

Longer, I can't take it any longer
otherwise i'm gonna lose my mind

Are you really happy
or is it just a front
or am i only taking up your time
do you want to stay
or do you want to go
i just want you to make up your mind

Longer, I can't take it any longer
otherwise i'm gonna lose my mind
Track Name: The Gomer Song
Keep on digging up those bones
to create immoral clones
do you wonder who you are
syndicated twilight zone

Well, I just don't know

So take your pill to carry on
and search the web for what is on
it's like survival of the fittest
Strike your flint rock with the stone

Well, I just don't know

Surprise, surprise, surprise
Jesus saved us all when he shed his blood of life
surprise, surprise, surprise
Jesus answered these questions when he shed his blood of life
And this I Know

And if the truth be known
you would find your not alone
when the book of life is opened
and read before God's Throne

This I know

There won't be a telephone
and there won't be mercy shown
because we all have had free-will
to make these decisions on our own

This I know

Surprise, surprise, surprise
Jesus saved us all when he shed his blood of life
surprise, surprise, surprise
Jesus answered these questions when he shed his blood of life
And this I Know
Track Name: Just Once (Scrub Radio Version)
just on touch
just one smile
just one look, turns me inside out
just one moment
just one day
just one kiss
just look my way

Just one time

just one whisper
just one glance
just one moment if i had the chance
just one number
just one call
just one night with me, might make you fall

Just one Time

just one letter
just one wink
just one flower could make you think
just one minute
just one word
just one question if i had the nerve

Just one Time
Track Name: Heaven Knows
heaven knows that we've been down some roads
i find myself holding on for life sometimes
and even though we were barely getting by
you chose to fight, and stood by my side

and heaven knows that i count my lucky stars
i cross my fingers, you will never go
you alone hung the moon in my heart
and heaven knows how wonderful you are

heaven knows,
knows you by your first name
heaven knows
your warm and loving heart
heaven knows
the wonders that you bring
heaven knows

your and angel without wings

sometimes i wonder if you really know
how i feel for you inside my heart
how much i love you
can't be said with simple words
how much i love you
i can'not describe

and heaven knows that id be lost without you
heaven knows the good in all you do
i could never take for granted who you are
in my eyes you are the shining stars

heaven knows,
knows you by your first name
heaven knows
your warm and loving heart
heaven knows
the wonders that you bring
heaven knows
Track Name: Feeding the Fire
i tip my hat
out to the cold
where i stand is like a frozen hold
i need the time it takes
don't forget me
see the blind man beg for mercy

standing on the ice
on the edge of desire
don't you realize that your feeding the fire

sit alone and wonder why
you leave me in this state of mind
self denied and overturned
i see you leaving , i won't let you go
Track Name: Dreams of Africa
dark of night
here in my dreams
blazing fires
dance and screams
shadows cast
where spirits flow
and boldly pass
where no one goes

pounding drums
with velvet hands
rhythm grows
throughout the land
chanting tongs
i cant understand
a soul sings a song
for Africa

in my mind
it all comes clear
what is real
and what is here
a distant place
beyond it all
we dream in space
we find it all
Track Name: Dangerous
your so dangerous
with that wicked touch
your the kind that drives a man insane
and i don't know what it took
just to get that look
but it makes it hard to look the other way
and i know, you know, you know just what you've got
roll the dice again and take a shot

your so dangerous to me

i'm not caught
in the web you weave
when your spinning it is time to leave
i am sure
you will find one day
that this dirty game is hard to play
and i know ,you know, you know just what you've got
roll your dice again and take a shot

your so dangerous to me
