Track Name: Baby It's Time To Go
Woke up one morning with a shotgun in my hand
New tattoo on my chest, looking like superman
Took a look around but didn't know where I was
When some sweet young thing came walking through the door
She said I don't remember your name, but what are you waiting for

We gotta run if we wanna be free
No time to waste baby come along with me
Put the money in the car and lets get on the road
Baby it's time to go

Don't know how this got started, I'll tell you how it ends
Things weren't looking good, for me and my new friend
Days on the road, low on cash and out of time
When we stopped in some old town and she went in the store
So I hitched a ride, jumped inside and said what are you waiting for

We gotta run if we wanna be free
No time to waste baby come along with me
Put the money in the car and lets get on the road
Baby it's time to go
Track Name: Out Of Control
Wish I was walking quiet streets
Sunday afternoon in the sun
Checking out all the peaceful peeps
All of the delusions undone
Hacky's flying thru the air
Listening to the guitars strum
Life lived without a care
Not knowing what will come

Will we figure it out
Are we falling apart
Can we come back down
Without leaving a scar

Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control, open your eyes and take a peek

Wish that I was far far away
In the mountains snow falling down
Soaking up the intense sun rays
No one else but me around
Listening to the silence scream
Eagle soaring in the sky
Living in this misfit dream
Where we can laugh until we die

Will we figure it out
Are we falling apart
Can we come back down
Without leaving a scar

Out of control
Out of control
Out of control
Out of control, open your eyes and take a peek

But we feel alive
And we are strong
So we will survive
And we will always carry on...
Track Name: Leave With Me Tonight
Riding high on the wave of life
Laying low so it won't cut me like a knife
Feeling so confused and looking kinda tired
Getting overwhelmed by all these feelings and desires

And it feels like I live here so it must be time to go
Staying in one place just ain't my way now don't you know
And if I should fall, if I think I might
Won't you come along and leave with me tonight

Moving on 'cause there's nothing left
Nothing left for me to be and nothing left for me to see
The grass is always greener, air is always cleaner
But it only lasts so long, only lasts so long

And then it feels like I live here so it must be time to go
Staying in one place just ain't my way now don't you know
And if I should fall, if I think I might
Won't you come along and leave with me tonight
Track Name: Believe
Let me explain a couple of things
About the way I live my life, sometime it ain't right
Running all over town all hours of the day and night
Chasing those things that seem
Like I'm chasing the sun going down
Well it won't escape me if I follow it around
But there'll always be time for us
Because baby I believe...

Oh I believe in you
I believe in you
Yeah I believe in you

Won't you tell me what's been on your mind
And I'll make the time to hear
Every single word you have to say
Without drifting away in my thoughts
Always distracted and wondering so
Where will this lead and do I really want to know
But I know that it's alright when she says
Baby I believe...

Oh I believe in you
I believe in you
Yeah I believe in you
I believe in you

And sometimes late at night when no one's around
I sit outside and watch the clouds drift by
Like so many things in our lives
They keep getting lost, thru space and time
But we all need something to hold on to
And I believe, yeah I believe in you...
Track Name: Under The Overdrive
My head is still spinning baby
Why do things always get so crazy
I don't want to be here all alone
Won't you please just answer your phone
You know that these dreams still pull at me
Just like the tide pulling at the sea
Couldn't escape it if I tried
So are ya coming along for the ride, ride, ride
Lets see where it takes us
Ride, ride, ride no more breaking because...

Under the overdrive playing it safe
We're never gonna win this race
One step ahead but a little too late
Under the overdrive playing it safe

I really needed to have you along
You know I just can't make it on my own
All of these thoughts racing round my head
Too much to say hold my words instead
We've still got a long way left to go
And how we're gonna get there well I don't know
All of these dreams we still hold inside
Well are ya coming along for the ride, ride, ride

Lets see where it takes us
Ride, ride, ride no more breaking because...

Under the overdrive playing it safe
We're never gonna win this race
One step ahead but a little too late
Under the overdrive playing it safe

Gotta keep moving, keep moving on
Can't ever stay satisfied for too long
I know there's something out there waiting to be found
Keep our faith up above and our feet on the ground
And keep on driving, keep on pushing, keep on running till the end...

Under the overdrive playing it safe
We're never gonna win this race
One step ahead but a little too late
Under the overdrive playing it safe
Track Name: Soldier
Every moning when I lace up my boots
I know that it could be the last time
Fighting the battles you don't see on the news
Doing the dirty work out on the front lines
I've been thru hell and back again
So many times I really should be dead, but
I don't mind
I'd gladly pay
With my life
Just to help
Keep you safe

I.....I am a soldier
I.....I am a soldier
I.....I am a soldier

Heading out on a mission today I can't lose
'Cause there's always so much on the line
Protecting the life and freedoms that we choose
It's a tough job standing up for what is right
I have been called into this life
I fight where I'm told and I win where I fight!
I don't mind
I'd gladly pay
With my life
Just to help
Keep you safe

I.....I am a soldier
I.....I am a soldier
I.....I am a soldier
Track Name: Gotta Keep Rollin'
Been running all night and now it's half past dawn
Trying to find an exit from this road I'm on
The sun is shining in my eyes and I can't see
But that ain't half as bad as what's been following me, so I

Gotta keep rollin'
Rollin' on down the road
Gotta find a way to lighten my load
Gotta keep rollin'
Rollin' on down the road
Gotta find a way to lighten my load

Shadows from this life are always out there on the prowl
No matter how far away I get they still track me down
Playing in the rearview of my mind all day long
On repeat like the lyrics of an old favorite song, so I

Gotta keep rollin'
Rollin' on down the road
Gotta find a way to lighten my load
Gotta keep rollin'
Rollin' on down the road
Gotta find a way to lighten my load

Well I gotta get away
'Cause I can't take the pain
And it's drivin' me insane
Track Name: Today
Looking out the window from my bedroom
Leaves are falling the winter will be here soon
Wonder what this day will bring in my life
It's hard to get moving when it's so damn cold outside

Today could be a good day we'll have to see
Been too many sad ones 'round hear lately
Always so many obstacles in the way
What's it gonna be today

Walking by these pictures on my wall
Most of them of days that I no longer recall
But that doesn't mean that they're all wasted times
Every day has its own new pictures to find

Today could be the start of something great
Gotta get myself going 'cause it won't wait
Got this time and so much left to say
What's it gonna be today...
