Track Name: Children Of The Pain
SEE ‘EM HERE MOST EVERYDAY BUT NEVER TAKE THE TIME TO ASK THEIR NAMES
HANGING ‘ROUND WITH OLDER MEN
MUCH COLDER THAN THE ICE WITHIN THEIR VEINS
GOOD CHURCH LADIES TRY TO SAVE THEIR SOULS SAVE THEM FROM THE SHAME
BUT THAT’S THE VERY THING THE KIDS THEY’RE RUNNING FROM
THEY’RE THE CHILDREN OF CHILDREN OF THE PAIN
THERE’S SOMETHING SO FAMILIAR THERE
THE WAY SHE MOVED THE WAY SHE STARRED ME DOWN
THE TWINKLE IN HER EYE REVEALD IT’S ALL A GAME
I SCREAMED THERE WAS NO SOUND
AIN’T IT STRANGE HOW PAIN IT KEEPS RECURRING
TILL YOUR KARMA GETS RESOLVED
WE’RE ATTRACTED TO THE HEAT
YET ALWAYS ACT SURPRISED WHEN IT BURNS US UP
WHO CAN SAY WHY SHE LEFT THAT DAY
FRECKLING YOUR LIFE JUST LIKE A STAIN
NOW SHE’S HERE WITH THE LOVE YOU TOSSED AWAY
SULLEN SOULS ON FIRE
SHE’S JUST A CHILD OF THE PAIN
Track Name: Roll Me
THERE’S A FEELING I GET I START CLIMBING THE WALL
AT TIMES I GET SO FED UP I JUST WANT TO CHUCK IT ALL
THEY GIVE YOU THE ROOM BUT IT AIN’T GOT NO VIEW
ONE DAY YOU’RE A GENIUS THE NEXT YOU HAVEN’T A CLUE
I THINK OF SEEING YOU AND PRAY I’LL MAKE IT ‘TILL THEN
I’LL SEE YOU SMILE FEEL BETTER AGAIN
TOO MANY WITH NOTHING TOO FEW WITH A LOT
PLAYING BY THEIR RULES AH IT’S JUST GOT TO STOP
YOU’RE THE ONE WHO FIGURES OUT THE RIDDLE IN ME
WHAT WOULD I DO IF YOU EVER LEFT
JUST ROLL ME BABY ROLL WITH ME ALL NIGHT LONG
COME ON AN ROLL ME RIGHT HERE WHERE YOU BELONG
COME ON AND ROLL ME UNFOLD YOUR WINGS AND FLY
COME ON AND ROLL ME GET IT UP AND ROLL ME BABY TONIGHT
YOU’RE THE ONE WHO FIGURES OUT THE RIDDLE IN ME
WHAT WOULD I DO IF YOU EVER LEFT
ROLL ME….
Track Name: Day By Day
I'VE BEEN SEARCHIN' FOR SO LONG
PRAYIN' THAT I'M WRONG
GOD PUT NO WOMAN HERE FOR ME
ABOUT THE TIME I LET 'EM IN QUESTIONING BEGINS
ANOTHER BROKEN HEARTED FRIEND
THEY SAY I DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO FALL IN LOVE
GIVE ME SOME ROOM THIS AIN'T ENOUGH
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY
AND THEN YOU OPENED UP MY DOOR NEVER FELT SO SURE
OF ANY ONE THING IN MY LIFE
A LOVELY HAND TO FIT MY GLOVE
SULTRY FLAME TO LIGHT MY STOVE
BUT NOW YOU'RE TELLlN' ME SLOW DOWN
SAY YOU DON'T KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO FALL IN LOVE
GOTTA GIVE YOU SOME ROOM THIS AIN'T ENOUGH
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY
SAY IT'S ALL RIGHT DON'T YOU CRY TAKE IT DAY BY

I GUESS IT ONLY GOES TO SHOW
DONT COUNT YOUR CHICKENS' TILL YOU KNOW
EVERY DETAIL OF THE HEART CAUSE LOVES A WAITING GAME
A MINDBENDING MATING GAME YOU CAN RUN OUT OF GAS BEFORE YOU START
NOBODY REALLY KNOWS IF THEIR HEART'S GONNA FALL IN LOVE
WE JUST BEG BORROW AND STEAL TO FEEL THE LOVE
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY DAY BY DAY WE TAKE IT DAY BY DAY YEA YEA OOH YEA
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
Track Name: Pocket Of A Thief
WHERE ARE YOU GOING GIRL IS THERE A LIGHT INSIDE YOUR SADDNESS
YOU’RE WEARING THE MARKS OF A MAN PAINTING A SMILE ON THE FACE OF MADDNESS
DON’T GIVE UP NO DON’T GIVE UP YOUR DREAMS
RUN BEYOND THE EVIL MONKEY’S REACH YOU’RE IN THE POCKET OF A THIEF
YOU FEED ON THE TWO EXTREMES IT’S GREAT WHEN IT’S GOOD A HELL THEREAFTER
VIOLENCE SHATTERS THE NIGHT HIS MELODRAMA IS YOUR DISASTER
DON’T GIVE UP NO DON’T GIVE UP YOUR HOPE
BREAK THE SPELL ESCAPE THE DANGER ZONE YOU’RE IN THE POCKET OF A THIEF
RAGE REARS ITS’ HEAD AND YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES
YOU’RE SICK DESPRATE HOPE SELLS HIS ALIBIS
GIRL YOU GOTTA RUN FIND A PLACE TO HIDE AND FINALLY HEAL
YOU’RE PRAYING THE WORST IS OVER
HE’LL BE REBORN AND YOU’LL RECOVER
BUT A LEOPARD CAN’T CHANGE HIS SPOTS
IGNORE YOUR HEART LET THE FEAR TAKE OVER
DON’T GIVE UP NO DON’T GIVE UP YOUR PRIDE
CREMATE THE BASTARD’S MEMORY
‘CAUSE YOU CAN’T DENY
YOU’RE IN THE POCKET OF A THIEF
Track Name: Horse's Grave
STUMBLING, SKITTERING ACROSS THE RAILYARD
THE WHORES AND BEGGARS KNOW YOU’RE NAME
THE DAWN IT BLINDS YOU, REVEALS THE DEPRIVATION DOWN IN THE HORSE’S GRAVE
ONLY YOUR FRIENDS THEY KNOW THE SECRET
YOU’RE SO SURE YOUR MASQUERADE FOOLS THE REST
THE NOOSE PULLS SO TIGHT SWEAT STINGS YOUR EYES PRIDE IT SUFFOCATES
DOWN IN THE HORSE’S GRAVE
DIANA, WHERE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT DIANA, YOU’VE FALLEN FROM THE EDGE
DIANA, THE DRUG DEMANDS A SACRIFICE AND THAT SCACRIFICE IT’S GOTTA BE YOU
YOU’RE IN THE HORSE’S GRAVE
IN YOUR DREAMS THE BEAST CAN’T FIND YOU A BLESSED CHILD THAT GOD PROTECTS
PAIN SHATTERS THE DREAM SCATTERING SOULS LIKE DEBRIS THERE’S LITTLE LEFT TO SAVE
DOWN IN THE HORSE’S GRAVE
DIANA, WHERE YOU GONNA SLEEP TONIGHT DIANA, YOU’VE FALLEN FROM THE EDGE
DIANA, THE DRUG DEMANDS A SACRIFICE AND THAT SCACRIFICE IT’S GOTTA BE YOU
YOU’RE IN THE HORSE’S GRAVE
Track Name: Justine
I’M WATCHIN YOU HANGIN ON HIM LIKE AN ORNAMENT
I’M THINKIN’ THAT USED TO BE ME
AND I’M WANDERIN OUT HERE IN MY WILDERNESS
WHAT A SORRY SHAME JUSTINE
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO OUR PLACE OF PEACE
I GUESS YOU LOST YOUR FAITH IN ME
NOW THE LONELY NIGHTS ARE INCOMPLETE INCOMPLETE
LOOKS LIKE IT AIN’T GONNA WORK OUT LIKE WE THOUGHT IT WOULD
WE’RE LOST IN A DRIVIN’ RAIN
WE’RE LIKE THAT OLD BROKEN DOWN CAR IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
ABANDONED AND LEFT FOR DEAD
EVERYBODY SEES THE WORTH IN US
GUESS YOUR INDEPENDENCE MEANS TOO MUCH
NOW I’M ACHING FOR YOUR ANGEL TOUCH ANGEL TOUCH

BRIDGE
I GOTTA FACE THE TRUTH HONEY UNTANGLE DREAMS
SWEET LOVE OR FANTASY THERE’S NO INBETWEEN
NO PLACE LEFT TO HIDE BABY IT’S TIME WE CAME CLEAN
IT’S CRYSTALINE YOU’RE MOVING ON JUSTINE

I’VE ALWAYS BEEN ONE TO WALK AWAY
I KNOW WHAT THAT SAYS ABOUT ME
AND I KNOW YOU THINK THAT MY HEART’S AFRAID
AN EMOTIONAL ABSENTEE
I KEEP HOPING YOU’LL COME BACK TO ME
THEN I FALL BACK TO REALITY
YOU’VE LOCKED AWAY YOUR HEART AND TOOK THE KEY

YOU’RE MOVIN’ ON JUSTINE
Track Name: Moth To Your Flame
THE PHONE MACHINE SAYS YOU’RE OUT FOR A WHILE
THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE ALWAYS MAKES ME SMILE
AND I’VE JUST GOT TO SEE YOU TONIGHT
YOU TOLD ME BE CAREFUL BOY DON’T YOU GO TOO FAR
‘CAUSE YOU’RE NOT THE KIND OF GIRL I THINK YOU ARE
SOMEBODY’S GONNA GET HURT REAL BAD TONIGHT
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE WHERE THERE’S SMOKE THERE’S FIRE
I KNOW IN MY HEART GIRL YOU CAN CHANGE
I’VE NEVER KNOWN SUCH A BURNING DESIRE
GIVE US A CHANCE AND YOU’LL FEEL THE SAME
I’M LIKE A MOTH TO YOUR FLAME
IT’S 3 O’CLOCK AND YOU’RE STILL NOT HOME
OR MAYBE YOU’RE THERE WON’T PICK UP THE PHONE
‘CAUSE YOU’RE NOT ALONE I CAN’T STOP TILL I SEE YOU TONIGHT
YOU KNOW I BELIEVE WHERE THERE’S SMOKE THERE’S FIRE
I KNOW IN MY HEART GIRL YOU CAN CHANGE
I’VE NEVER KNOWN SUCH A BURNING DESIRE
GIVE US A CHANCE AND YOU’LL FEEL THE SAME
I’M LIKE A MOTH TO YOUR FLAME
Track Name: Unwanted
THE WINDOWS TO YOUR HOUSE ARE DARK
AND THE DOORS THEY’RE ALL BOLTED I STILL SMELL YOUR BODY EVERYWHERE
MEMORIES FLOOD INTO MY MIND OF WHAT WE HAD ‘TILL I CROSSED THE LINE
NOW I’M HIDIN’ HERE LIKE A WANTED MAN
YOU JUST CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I SAY BABY
YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
HER NAME WAS ADELINE AND HER MANNER BEGUILED ME
I LOST MYSELF DOWN HER WILD WINDING WAY
SHE WAS MY CRIME AND I’M GUILTY
BUT YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU PLEASE LET ME LOVE YOU
YOU ARE THE LIGHT I DEPEND UPON YOU TURNED AWAY AND MY LIGHT WAS GONE
OPEN UP YOUR DOOR AND LET ME IN DOWN ON MY KNEES I NEED TO LOVE YOU AGAIN
THE WINDOWS TO YOUR HEART ARE CLOSED YOUR EYES WON’T LOOK UPON ME
BUT I STILL TASTE YOUR TEAR DROPS EVERYDAY
Track Name: Simple Tonight
I DON’T WANT TO OWN YOU I JUST NEED YOU TO HOLD ON TO ME
OH NO I REALLY SHOULDN’T STAY THE NIGHT
NO GIRL DON’T SAY YOU LOVE ME JUST TELL ME YOU WANT ME SOMETIMES
LET’S KEEP THIS THING SIMPLE TONIGHT
SIMPLE TONIGHT NO QUESTIONS NO LIES BABY IT’S ALL UP TO YOU
LET’S KEEP IT SIMPLE TONIGHT NO COMMITMENTS AND NO MORE FIGHTS
SIMPLE TONIGHT NOBODY GETS HURT SOMEBODY ALWAYS GETS HURT
WHEN MY DEFENSES WERE DOWN YOU INSISTED IN PROWLING AROUND IN MY HEART
AND ME AND MY HEART YOU KNOW WE SELDOM TALK
YOU’RE A WOMAN OF THE WORLD YOU SAY FREEDOM IS YOUR CURRENCY
SO WHY ON EARTH ARE YOU HANGING ON TO ME
SIMPLE TONIGHT NO QUESTIONS NO LIES BABY IT’S ALL UP TO YOU
LET’S KEEP IT SIMPLE TONIGHT NO COMMITMENTS AND NO MORE FIGHTS
SIMPLE TONIGHT NOBODY GETS HURT SOMEBODY ALWAYS GETS HURT
Track Name: Standing Still
THE PRINCESS POSES TORTOISE CLIP IN HER HAIR
SOME PEOPLE STARE SWEAR THEY KNOW HER FROM SOMEWHERE
SHE TAKES SHORT ORDERS FROM THE ORDINARY FOLKS
STEALS A SMOKE ON THE PORCH BEARDED GRUNT GRABS A GROPE
I’M AN ICEBERG IN THREE QUARTER TIME
PROPPED IN THE CORNER QUITE UNSUPERVISED
A PRIMETIME GODDESS SHE PAWNED HER PLACE IN PARADISE
PRINCESS SITS THERE WITH A GUN IN HER HAND
SAYS SHE CAUGHT HER OLD MAN BANGING HARD HER LAST BEST FRIEND
A TV TART-RESS WITH A STAR ON THE DOOR
PRODUCER’S DAUGHTER SHOWED UP SHATTERED DREAMS ON THE FLOOR
I’M HOLDING COURT LYING ‘BOUT MY LIFE
PUMPING BLOOD INTO MY FLACCID LIES
THE PRINCESS PRETENDS THAT TOMORROW
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
I’M HANGING ON BY MY FINGERNAILS
POUNDING CUERVO FROM THE HOLY GRAIL
WE ALL PRETEND THAT TOMORROW
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
STANDING STILL JUST WAITING FOR THE SIGN
