Track Name: Guiltless
I hope to be fluid in motion,
guiltless and free as a drop in the ocean.
Float on by and by in that rolling surf.

You can believe or just keep on pretending.
There's so much you don't read if you skip to the ending.
I'll go my own way but I might just get there first!

*CHORUS*
Don't think your mistakes are foes,
you can't always be in control.
There are some things you must let go.
Don't let it be your home.


Some words are sweet, some are deceiving.
It's just like a weed that your garden's been grieving.
Make your mind up 'cause hey man, either way it works!

Take what you need, keep your direction,
strain at the seams, trust your intentions.
Take a chance 'cause I sure ain't gonna take my time.

*CHORUS*

Don't leave your dreams locked in suspension,
Time can repeat, make it something worth the mention.
Hold on tight, I can't wait to see what's next!

Look at the stars, see what they're saying.
Nearby or far, we'll just keep on playing.
Keep it up, I've got everything I need right here!

*CHORUS*
Track Name: Trouble
Woke up this morning on the wrong side of bed,
headache so bad I wished I was dead.
Pushing down the covers, barely awake,
I thought I saw the slithering form of a snake.

Jump to the bathroom, taking a drink,
somethin’ started bubbling up through the sink.
I looked in the mirror but all that I saw were
the dark eyes of a woman who’d broken the law.

*CHORUS*
Sayin hey-o, trouble is a-comin’ baby!
Hey-o, yes it’s true!
Hey-o, trouble is a comin’
'cause the devil got his eye on you.


Took a walk here around this town,
all I could find were kids standing around
like the shadow of a ghost that their childhood stole.
Looking with eyes, but without any souls.

One took me by the hand - it was dry as a bone!
(Wishing that I hadn’t come here alone...)
He turned and he spoke without saying a word,
but without a doubt these were the words that I heard.

*CHORUS*

Took me to the entry of the local bar,
all the folks were dancing - the door was ajar.
Flames leaping up from the walls and the floor but
no one in the town gave a damn anymore.

Took me to the back to a man standing there,
still as a statue returning my stare.
"Honey I’m the devil as you know very well and...
I’ve come to take you forever to hell!"

Sayin hey-o, trouble is a-comin’ baby!
Hey-o, yes it’s true!
Hey-o, trouble is a comin’
'cause...I got my eye on you!

I screamed and I ran to my door.
All these pictures in my head...I don’t wanna see them anymore!
Can’t tell what’s real, what’s a dream.
And you know nothing’s ever what it seems…

I burst in the door and fell down on my knees.
I heard someone wailing, "Darling, not again please!"
Lash out around me cause the night’s gone dark but
somewhere an idea has ignited a spark.

The devil may come, but I’ll be one step ahead.
You know he can’t catch me if I’m already dead!
Only one way to stop what’s coming to pass:
Turn on the stove, and then I strike up a match!

Sayin' hey-o, trouble is a-comin’ baby!
Hey-o, yes it’s true!
Hey-o, trouble is a comin’ baby
Trouble is a comin’ baby
Trouble is a comin’ baby
Sayin hey-o, trouble is a-comin’ baby!
Hey-o, yes it’s true!
Hey-o, trouble is a comin’
Cause the devil got his eye on you.
Track Name: Friend
Well, I woke up.
Yeah I opened my eyes.
and now I see your pretty little words were lies.
Hey, guess what?
I'm takin' back what's mine.
Do whatever you please, just please don't waste my time.

*CHORUS*
I scratch your back, you stab mine.
If that’s the way you want it? Well that’s just fine.
I ain’t gonna take it like I done before,
and I don’t wanna be your friend no more.
No, I don’t wanna be your friend no more.


When I look back
on whatcha given me,
It's precious little 'sides grief and misery.
Well I'm a-gettin' up,
I'm goin' out on my own.
So won't you be a pal to me and leave me alone?

*CHORUS*

*CHORUS*
