Affliction 02:54
I close my eyes to avoid my affliction I turn my back to escape your stare Iʼve been seduced by mortal addiction With a kiss and a fistful of hair Keep those poison lips all to yourself I donʼt need your love to save me from myself I run away from the Garden of Eden I slap the truth out from your hand Iʼve been deceived by my own conviction and a woman from the promised land Keep those poison lips all to yourself I donʼt need your love to save me from myself I hear you call me Keep those poison lips all to yourself I donʼt need your love to save me from myself

Bad Girl 04:17
She's a bad bad girl...and I think I like it Such a good bad girl...and I cant fight it Boots to the knee like a knife through me and I think I'm dyin...I'm dyin She's a bad bad girl She's been a bad bad girl...and she don't mind it Wearing that low cut "V"...like she designed it Heels to the hips with those cherry red lips and I'm truly dyin...yes I'm dyin 4 steps til she has her way 3 more and you start to pray 2 left and you'll be done Lord don't let her get to... Sidestepped a bullet but you ain't in the clear She drew a little blood and now she smells fear She's got lust in her eyes and she won't be denied I know I'm dyin...Yes I'm dyin 4 steps til she has her way 3 more and you start to pray 2 left and you'll be done Lord don't let her get to... One wrong move and she will prove just how bad girls get their name 4 steps til she has her way 3 more and you start to pray 2 left and you'll be done Lord don't let her get to...

Iʼm calling out all of the beautiful people With your perfect smile and your shiny hair Youʼre way too pretty to start a fight So you draw your blood with an angelʼs bite Iʼm calling out all of the beautiful people With your luring eyes and your heavenly scent Youʼre getting drunk on rapt devotion Youʼre getting high off my emotions You donʼt know just what its like To live an ordinary life You donʼt know just what its like To live my ordinary life Iʼm calling out all the beautiful people Who always get just what they want If you ever walked a mile only to lose Youʼd feel the hole in the soul of my shoes You donʼt know just what its like To live an ordinary life You donʼt know just what its like To live my ordinary life You walk by without a glance but you are sure to take your chance to kick me while Iʼm down You donʼt know just what its like To live an ordinary life You donʼt know just what its like To live my ordinary life

Just a Man 04:02
The man can't ride my back Unless he finds me bent So I lift my head and howl for the freedom I need sent I ain't no pawn. I ain't no king I ain't no pawn. I ain't no king I'm just a man who has a dream The man who will not die For the things that he believes Well he ain't fit to live Among the killers and the thieves I ain't no pawn. I ain't no king I ain't no pawn. I ain't no king I'm just a man who has a dream An eye for an eye Leaves everyone blind I ain't no pawn. I ain't no king I ain't no pawn. I ain't no king I'm just a man who has a dream

Evolution 04:30
Some of us still sleeping, Drifting in apathy Some of us so angry we can barely breath. Some of us just babies, afraid to cut our teeth Some of us so cynical, we no longer believe Itʼs time for an evolution, Itʼs time for an evolution, Itʼs time for an evolution We've got to break free Some of us just addicts, victims of atrophy One habit to another, fulfillment never achieved Some of us self-medicate trying to fill the hole Holding on to things that never let us go Itʼs time for an evolution, Itʼs time for an evolution, Itʼs time for an evolution We've got to break free Some of us are so wounded, Life hasn't been kind Some of us always searching for what we canʼt find Some of us are just waiting, the next step we refuse Holding on to tradition like it's bullet proof Itʼs time for an evolution, Itʼs time for an evolution, Itʼs time for an evolution We've got to break free

Too Late 02:23
Gave you everything I got But you wouldn't give the time Now I'm the flavor of the month I'm all that's on your mind Now it seems that what I got is all you want Just shut up...You messed up It's too late waited too long It's too late now its so long Crawl back and tell your friends Didn't happen now... Should've happened then Your scheming heart now broke in two Oh you got the blues Tables turned and now you're on your back foot talking Just shut up...You messed up It's too late waited too long It's too late now its so long Those begging eyes Those desperate lies Those pleading cries mean nothing to me It's too late waited too long It's too late now its so long

Clean 05:04
I'm addicted to misery and she sure loves me Broke her heart at least 6 times, and she's still hanging on me No matter how I try to change the man I am Her lies just bring me back again only to stab my back again Take my sickness, Take my disease Bathe this filthy man that you see Take this dirt that's burying me Take me to the river, Hold me under til I'm clean She's an arrow through my heel, I've gotten used to walking lame She's never offered mercy and I've never taken blame No matter how I try to change the man I am Her lies just bring me back again only to stab my back again Take my sickness, Take my disease Bathe this filthy man that you see Take this dirt that's burying me Take me to the river, Hold me under til I'm clean Take my sickness, Take my disease Bathe this filthy man that you see Take this dirt that's burying me Take me to the river...Oh Lord... Take my sickness, Take my disease Bathe this filthy man that you see Take this dirt that's burying me Take me to the river, Hold me under til I'm clean

by Billy Joe Shaver Down a dangerous road, i have come to where i'm standing With a heavy heart,and my hat clutched in my hand Such a foolish man,God ain't known no greater sinner I have come in search of Jesus, hoping he will understand I had a woman once,she was kind and she was gentle Had a child by me,who grew up to be a man I had a steady job,til i started into drinking And i started playing music traveling with the devil's band Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles My dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind It's a lonesome life,when you lose the ones you live for If i make my peace with Jesus will he take me back again If i give my soul,will he stop my hands from shaking If i give my soul,will my son love me again If i give my soul,and she knows i really mean it If i give my soul to Jesus will she take me back again If i give my soul,will he clean these clothes i'm wearin' If i give my soul,will he put new boots on my feet If i bow my head and beg God for his forgiveness Will he breathe new breath within me and give my back my dignity.

Blind 04:29
I heard God today in a newborn child Smelled Him in some of flowers in the wild Even saw Him in a man who was sentenced to die And in the teeth of a beggarʼs smile Them crooked teeth of a beggar's smile All things considered Iʼm still blind When I am looking with just my eyes In the depth of the valley I canʼt find...You Open the eyes deep in my soul Take my hand and donʼt let go Teach my heart to know...You All things considered Iʼm still blind When I am looking with just my eyes In the depth of the valley I canʼt find...You Open the eyes deep in my soul Take my hand and donʼt let go Teach my heart to know...You Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah All things considered Iʼm still blind When I am looking with just my eyes In the depth of the valley I canʼt find...You
