Track Name: Solitary
Like a bridge the structures built, beams of shame and catholic guilt
Now he’s saying, “do what thou wilt” with love lost in the rearview.
Sweet talk the sugar’s your face, you know you want it but you can’t have a taste
The hook shines as we take the bait we’re no longer in the water.

Be at the red velvet rope or at the monastery.
And there’s you and me, and there’s solitary.

Chorus:
He’s caught a glimpse and now he begs
Pants on piano legs.
Tooty fruity, deviled eggs
Pants on piano legs

A fire starts at the count of the beat, cover your eyes but you still feel the heat
Dancing down to myrtle and hart street, let’s put four to the floor.
To get the truth you must strip it bare, half there when you’re told not to stare
When lust is fed who can even care to find someone true as you.

Be at the red velvet rope, be at the monastery.
And there’s you and me, and there’s solitary.

Chorus
He’s caught a glimpse and now he begs
Pants on piano legs.
Tooty fruity, deviled eggs
Pants on piano legs

Victorian vixen, solo in ‘Peg’
Pants on piano legs
Rings of Saturn, Billy and Meg
Pants on piano legs

You, you started with the intent that this could never end.
And thats better left unsaid. I know.
She, she’s all that you could want, so much that she could daunt.
But what more could you want? Don’t go.
Track Name: Forever and a Day
Feeling like a dealer,
dishing out a hand,
you know just where I stand.
Tell me, do you hit or stay?
Twenty-one’s a bust,
But babe your loves a must.
All in, the chips are all cashed.
But no money is gonna change me honey,
I just want this to last.

She’s so sweet, rarely sour
I want your loving baby
Not a second, not a minute, not an hour
I want your love

Chorus:
Forever and a day, forever and a day
Right here I will stay, right here I will stay.

Pushing with no winners,
You’re reading me all wrong,
This games gone far too long.
Baby its what you do to me
Even when the odds are stacked,
I’m still gonna want you back.

I’m the joker, she’s the queen.
I swear I’m not bluffing babe
You know just what I mean.

You’ve got to press your luck
Come on now ante up.

Chorus:
Forever and a day, forever and a day
Right here I will stay, right here I will stay.
Track Name: Tell Tale
There was a place beyond the pale,
Thousands of miles that a man would sail.
Busy streets all paved in gold.
Anyone can make it here, or so I’m told.

There she stands the light and the law in her hands.
Beautiful as can be, set my spirit free.

Chorus:
She’s got a lot of love to give,
That don’t make it for free.
She’ll have you spending all your money
From sea to shining sea.
I’ll cross any bridge to her,
I’ll ride any rail.
Cant keep a promise,
But she sure can tell a tale.

I saw your face bleak in the bay,
Eyes cold as stone as you were telling us please stay.
A cinderella story, bell of the ball.
Knocking on your door I’m at your beck and call.

Lady liberty looking right down on me.
Bureaucratic as can be living under a fee.

Chorus:
She’s got a lot of love to give,
That don’t make it for free.
She’ll have you spending all your money
From sea to shining sea.
I’ll cross any bridge to her,
I’ll ride any rail.
Cant keep a promise,
But she sure can tell a tale.
Track Name: Slight Infatuation
I should’ve placed a bet, you were a sure thing.
I seemed to catch your eye, you know you made me sing.
Just get back at it, empowered and imposed.
You hardly miss a step, you play it note for note.

And I lean across the bar, to ask you how you are.
It’s what shouldn’t I do when I have a slight infatuation for you.

Chorus:
You are the one to change my day up,
A dream I never wanna wake up.
Too long I’ve waited here in patience
For the, underlying cadence.

Couldn’t place your tone, caught up on the phone.
I seemed to slip away, you said you weren’t coming home.
Spending all your time, asking if its right.
Never finish nothing, burning out the night.

When the clock shows ‘four,’ and you’ve asked for more,
And the pond life sends you swimming for the shore

Half hearted is love part time,
What good is the catch if the chase is on your mind?
Flash in the pan, you’ve found your man.

Chorus:
You are the one to change my day up,
A dream I never wanna wake up.
Too long I’ve waited here in patience
For the, underlying cadence.

It’s what shouldn’t I do when I have a slight infatuation for you.
Track Name: Oh Annie O.
You were a strong kid, you loved your mother
Gotta pay off the mortgage, one way or another.

Patience and precision she knows,
Ready and steady she goes.

Chorus:
Oh Annie O. show me, just how sure you can really be.
Split a dime just in time for all the world to see.
Annie you’ve got the draw on me.

Escaped the wolves and took to the game.
Who knew the bullseye would be your fortune and fame.
Frank E. from the city made a very, very large bet.
He knew when she’d won it was his wife that he’d met.

Patience and precision she knows,
Ready and steady she goes. She goes.

Chorus:
Oh Annie O. show me, just how sure you can really be.
Split a dime just in time for all the world to see.
Annie you’ve got the draw on me.

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Brother Cain
Two can make a pair
But who can make it fair?
Now you’re Icarus
On a wing and on a prayer.
Reaching for a side
Even one that’s lied
Locked up in a cell well,
We’re destined to divide.

Chorus:
When one end burns quicker than the other.
“Let us go out to the field,” Cain said to his brother.

I heard a voice but who can it be?
Is it lust or her cousin jealousy?

We want it all for free
Guilt is absent of a fee.
Through the pillars
And into the brazen sea.
With Abel now fallen
And the east of eden callin’.
It’s now the land of the nod,
That we are all in.

Chorus:
When one end burns quicker than the other.
“Let us go out to the field,” Cain said to his brother.

I heard a voice but who can it be?
Is it lust or her cousin jealousy?

And he said, “What have you done?”
Death came for Eve’s second son.
Forced to live and wander with no
Chance of death to set him free.
Track Name: Product of the Past
You can be so sure
That this bridge will hold.
Based on the strain
And the decades old.
Count the years gone by
They say its built to last.
Trusting dated steel
A product of the past.

Chorus:
From the very first stone you hold your own
Larger than life.
Power in the placement we’ve never known,
A lifetime of strife.

Karak at Cairo
They say that Christ redeems.
You’ve got me baby
In the Colosseum.
Now you raise a wall
Love is what it’s about.
But how can I love you
When it keeps me out?

Chorus:
From the very first stone you hold your own,
Larger than life.
Power in the placement we’ve never known,
A lifetime of strife.

Like a red rag to a bull your heart gets full
Yearning to last
Testing time with constant push and pull
A product of the past
Track Name: Feel it Out
Hurts to see you crying
Never wanna do you wrong
You know babe that I’m trying
Trying to write a love song.
When can I see you again?
Is it gonna be the same?
I don’t wanna go back then
Cheap words with another name

And you can’t help but think that you’ve been misled,
A stranger to the man you let share your bed.
And all the sorrys in the world I know just won’t do,
But I’m gonna give you all I got to make it true.

Chorus:
Feel it out, so we can get back to (oh)
Feel it out, A love like that
Feel it out, try and save a good thing
Feel it out, it’s where I’m at.

Who can be the right one?
Can’t stop loving ourselves.
Could be having more fun
How do you even tell?
Well listen baby now I know
And I’m going for something real.
Got this love gonna make it show
Let you know just how I feel.

Chorus:
Feel it out, so we can get back to (oh)
Feel it out, A love like that
Feel it out, try and save a good thing
Feel it out, it’s where I’m at.
Track Name: Must Have Been
Missed the mark, not by a lot
Coming close is all that you ever got.
Those old tunes you still sing
Serenaded by the nostalgia they bring.

Nothings the same, everything feels in place
Forgot his name, such a familiar face.

Chorus:
Anyone could say, “Remember back in the day?”
Did it happen back then? Could it happen again?
Anyone could say, “I know it went this way.”
Therefore it must have been
Ill make it never end.

Its always in the autumn air
Blowing distant memories right on through your hair.
You settle on that place you knew
Reenacting scenes with roles played by you.

Nothings the same, everything feels in place
Forgot his name, such a familiar face.

Chorus:
Anyone could say, “Remember back in the day?”
Did it happen back then? Could it happen again?
Anyone could say, “I know it went this way.”
Therefore it must have been
Ill make it never end.
Track Name: Shooting with Yourself
With a little luck we can sort this out,
Lost in the country boy basement.
Flip the switch but have a doubt,
You just can’t seem to face it.
Throw another line, try to real them in,
Set your destination.
Somewhere along the line small talk’s a sin,
Catch and release fascination.

Poise melts like ice,
The ivory looks real nice.
Whisper a prayer but no one’s there,
Just you and the two dice.

Chorus:
Shooting with yourself
You can try again it doesn’t have to end when you’re
Shooting with yourself
Always coming out on top, so you never have to stop no
Always on top.

Double up the pot, get back what you can,
Tavern tales won’t save you.
A cold table has you feeling less-than,
Jack and coke are both through.
Cashing out the crew under china town lights,
Hail the last cab on canal street.
Driven days turn to hard-wired nights,
At least in queens three’s company.

Chorus:
Shooting with yourself
You can try again it doesn’t have to end when you’re
Shooting with yourself
Always coming out on top, so you never have to stop no
Always on top.
Track Name: Send For Love
With a little luck we can sort this out,
Lost in the country boy basement.
Flip the switch but have a doubt,
You just can’t seem to face it.
Throw another line, try to real them in,
Set your destination.
Somewhere along the line small talk’s a sin,
Catch and release fascination.

Poise melts like ice,
The ivory looks real nice.
Whisper a prayer but no one’s there,
Just you and the two dice.

Chorus:
Shooting with yourself
You can try again it doesn’t have to end when you’re
Shooting with yourself
Always coming out on top, so you never have to stop no
Always on top.

Double up the pot, get back what you can,
Tavern tales won’t save you.
A cold table has you feeling less-than,
Jack and coke are both through.
Cashing out the crew under china town lights,
Hail the last cab on canal street.
Driven days turn to hard-wired nights,
At least in queens three’s company.

Chorus:
Shooting with yourself
You can try again it doesn’t have to end when you’re
Shooting with yourself
Always coming out on top, so you never have to stop no
Always on top.
