Track Name: My Head's Been Lifted
I don't know why everybody has to die
You say you'd change the world but did you even try
From where you sit those words cannot deliver hope
But I see unclean hands that have come to help

It feels today like a rainbow is in the clouds
It feels today like my head's been lifted now
It feels yeah like a sun's been shining in
It feels like it's rays keep pouring down

And when you realize that everyone must lose
Between your sons and daughters you have got to choose
And everyone of us must one day pay the toll
For the things we bought but we never owned

It feels today like a rainbow is in the clouds
It feels today like my head's been lifted now
It feels yeah like a sun's been shining in
It feels like it's rays keep pouring down

It feels today like a rainbow is in the clouds
It feels today like my head's been lifted now
It feels yeah like a sun's been shining in
It feels like it's rays keep pouring down
Track Name: Money
All you care about is money
All you think about is wine
You just smoke your big cigar
Watch the other brothers die

And you'd die just to get one last chance
Yeah you'd chance it all just to say
But it's too late to say you're sorry
So you turn and look the other way

Saw you pass me on the street
Had that briefcase at your side
Beg you for a drink of water
You walk on and on the other side

And you'd die just to get one last chance
Yeah you'd chance it all just to say
But it's too late to say you're sorry
So you turn and look the other way

It's not too late
Yeah you beg, borrow or steal
Forgetting what is real
Yeah the man on the street is still just a man afterall
Stealing from the hungry
You'd die just to have it all

You ain't got no more money
The world's done took it all away
It can't go where you're headed
And you can no longer stay
Track Name: Lies Your Mother Told You
Well they told us we'd believe them
If they gave a sign
And they said that they would love us
If we only paid in kind

But they failed to mention
That they would not help you in distress
And that their love for you would be hindered
At the sum of your request
How can we pass that test?

Ohh

And they told you that you'd find your love
When you finished your quest
And all your answers would be solved
Inside that treasure chest

But you only end up dead
With those dragons in your head
Yeah you only end up dead

Ohh
La, La, La, La, La

Still we'll join hands together
Share this love through the night
Yeah we'll cling to their promise
That everything will be made right

Ohh
La, La, La, La, La
Track Name: Bury Me
I'll work the soil 'til the sun goes down
Rise with the dawn
And I will give back to the ground
When I'm dead and gone

I won't spend a single day
Thinking on what's past
Oh the seed I plant, not toss away
Will grow the tree that lasts

They will come to bury me, beside that old oak tree
I may die unhappy, but I will die free

I'll set sail toward raging seas
Brave the fiercest storms
I'd rather perish in the deep
Then anchor in the calm

And on the day I die, I will hold my head up high
Though I may die unsatisfied, regret won't follow me

Ohh
Track Name: Death
When Death takes me down
And I breathe no more
I ain't gonna worry
I ain't gonna worry

When I'm sailing out
From that eternal shore
I ain't gonna worry, love
I ain't gonna worry
