Track Name: Free and Alive
FREE AND ALIVE (Walsh)

Wake up 
We can't afford to be sleeping
This ain't just another of your bad dreams
We've gotta move before someone kicks the door in
This house ain't safe as it seems

Lightning strikes and for a moment you see
It don't mean a damned thing if you ain't free and alive

I got home from my job at the hospital
I hadn't been gone very long
Everything I knew lay in the rubble
Everyone I loved was gone

Now I'm gunning for the man who's done this to me
If it's the last thing I do I'm gonna make him see
I'm alive
Free and alive
Track Name: 4th Day of May
4TH DAY OF MAY


On the fourth day of May I will think of you
When Father Time is beating down your door
On the fourth day of May you'll be on my mind
Just like the other three hundred sixty four

Are you in love or are you crying
Do the candles make you turn in shame
Are you living fast or slowly dying
And why we're not together, oh who's to blame

On the fourth day of May I will think of you
Just like all the days that came before
On day one twenty four you'll be on my mind
Just like the other three hundred sixty four 
I-35 down to I-80
We headed west into the hills
I said "Can we now?" and you said "Maybe"
You always loved to travel without all the frills

On the fourth day of May I will think of you
When Father Time is rolling up the score
On day one twenty four you'll be on my mind
Just like the other three hundred sixty four 

You know, it's always someone's birthday
But it's always someone's funeral too
The future only makes you nervous
And if you don't learn, the past will only make you blue

On the fourth day of May I will think of you
Just like all the days that came before
On day one twenty four you'll be on my mind
Just like the other three hundred sixty four 
Oh, just like all the other three-six-four
Track Name: Home on the Range
HOME ON THE RANGE

Lived my life outside of town
Waiting for the freight train coming down to take me away
Dreamed my dreams from the top of the mountain
Didn't come down until I saw they'd all changed
And everyone looks at me like I'm a little strange
But they've never seen her
My home on the range

Don't feel like I'll ever move away
'Cause I know too many places arount here
Know where to get my shoes shined
Know where to get my clothes cleaned
Know where to get my suit pressed 
If I ever wanna do that again
And I know it looks a little strange
But if you knew her
My home on the range

All my life I've been searching
For something I can't put my finger on
All my life I've dreaming
Of that one perfect love that's never gonna come around
And I know it's strange
Me and my home on the range
Where the deer and the antelope play
My home on the range

Work hard, spend my money
Don't think it'll ever come to nothin'
Don't think it'll ever come to nothin'
I feel like, well, I could just go to hell
And no one would care
They don't think of me around here at all
They just think I'm strange
In my home on the range
They keep looking at me like I'm strange
In my home on the range
Track Name: I Thought We Were Friends
I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS

Oh your picture is so pretty
Look at how it draws a crowd
Lonely men from all over the world
Have got your theme song way up loud
When we met you made it clear that it was just pretend
But oh my darling, I thought we were friends

Well the rain keeps ripping down outside
There's a bulletin sent to me
This girl says she'd like to get together
Fine print says there is a fee
And there goes shorty, up in your top forty he ascends
With the comments he sends!
And oh my darling, I thought we were friends

And you're out, no doubt, and having a good time
While I'm online

Well the temperature keeps on dropping
Freezing rain has turned to snow
You know I've been down before, darlin'
But I don't think ever this low
When a heart is broken, they say it eventually mends
On you it depends
'Cause oh my darling, I thought we were friends
Track Name: She Loves You Anyway
SHE LOVES YOU ANYWAY

She can tell just what you're thinking
She must know your thoughts ain't pure
And there's a seller's market at the local rock club
That's for sure
Underhanded, overbearing
Mister Bad Act, Superflaw
You ain't here to here the band, man
That would take a broken jaw

She's a distant second
And you look out for number one
But she loves you
She loves you anyway

The waitress rubs just a little bit too close
You keep asking for a little more Joe
When it's time to pay
The generosity will finally show
It's getting colder in the Midway
Icy breeze from the State Fair grounds
Blowing southbound down Snelling Avenue
And out of town

And you'd catch that wind and ride it
If the offer came along
But she loves you
She loves you anyway

And the moment of glory, well she's hearing this story
for the seventh time
And still you pantomime
When she tells you that she loves you
Is that your proof?
Do all your lies then become the truth?
'Cause she loves you anyway
Track Name: Bike Ride on 35W
BIKE RIDE ON 35W (Walsh)
The baby’s asleep 
for a moment I’m free
To look back on my dreams and where I wanted to be
They seem sorta stupid now
Like what was I thinking anyhow?
I wanna dream something new
Bike ride on 35W

The dog’s so loud
He’s gonna wake that kid up
Crossing my fingers, refilling my cup
For a few more moments to write 
Something for the last hoot tonight
I wanna play something new
‘bout a bike ride on 35W

My my, hey hey
It’s such a beautiful day
Hey hey, my my
There ain’t a cop in the sky
My my, hey hey
What’ll the family say?
Hey hey, my my
Wanna live before I die

I called in sick
But I’m feeling just fine
Riding past the Do Not Enter sign
There stands the Foshay Tower
Undergrown overlooked flower
Among all the weeds that grew
Right up from 35W

Is there still a peaceful revolution
left inside of us
Or has that died in us
You’ve got a light that shines inside of you
Even when no one’s watching you
You still do all the good you can do
Revolution
Revolution
Track Name: Freeze
FREEZE 

Middle of the night
Hear the engine's roar
Hauling out a big old load of iron ore
Caught in the light
Saw you lying there
Deadest of doornails don't compare
I didn't do this
And my blade is hard
If I get caught here you know I'm going down hard

I should run now but I can't find the strength
I should run know, oh but I don't have the strength
I should get caught up on the breeze
All I did was freeze

We went out south
Looking for some fun
You know how that highway can run
You saw that man of yours
In the long black coat
I don't think that's what we were sposta do
I fell in line
I took your bluff
I didn't ever think those people would play so rough
Then I went away
Left you to do your business anyway
And I wish now to God I had stuck around

You know I should run
I should get outta here
You know they're gonna smell my breath
And it's whiskey and beer
Oh I should run
Get my feet on the breeze
But all I do is freeze

Sirens wailing
Last boat sailing
You can't hear me anymore
I take my one last kiss
Left something to be desired
You ain't around here anymore

I should run
I should run
But I can't seem to move my feet
I should run
I should get the fuck outta here now
But all I can do is freeze
I should run, but all I do is freeze
It's getting hot out here
All I do is freeze
Track Name: One Day
ONE DAY

On the one day that you were happy
You were beautiful, your hair blew in the breeze
And love shone from your eyes
And joyous laughter danced through perfect teeth

On the one day you finally made it
You hadn't a care in the world
Except that this may be the top of the mountain
And all the time before
You were looking forward
All the time since
You've been looking back

On the one day you finally got there
Your life, it was so complete
And you had the nerve to even question
If this was where you should be

And you didn't once think about the moment
You lived in fear of what was coming next
And you couldn't understand why no one was clapping
And all the time before
You were looking forward
All the time since
You've been looking back

Think I'm gonna take a long vacation
Think I'm gonna ride out underneath the stars
Find a place so dark I can't even see my hand
Despite the light from Jupiter and Mars
And maybe when I get there I'll be able to let it be
And be happy with the way things are
But I know myself, and I ain't holding my breath
Waiting for the best day of my life
Maybe this is the best day of my life

And all the time before
I was looking forward
All every minute from here on after
I'l be looking back
