Track Name: Wrong Turn At The Mad Sun
I see
Trouble on the horizon
We
Took a wrong turn

I see
The Mad Sun is arising
We
Took a wrong turn

Ooo ooo ooo
I fought the best I could (2x)
But we took a wrong turn

I see
The bad things sneakin’ up behind me
Where we
Took a wrong turn
I see
That when you circle the earth
You’ll wind up right back where you were

Ooo ooo ooo
I fought the best I could (2x)
But we took a wrong turn
Said we took a wrong turn
Track Name: Dusk Walk
Make new friends but keep the old.
One is silver and the other’s gold.
It’s a sin to be this bold.
Cash my chips in and fold.

It can’t be bought and can’t be sold.
Dreadful sight to behold.
Head on fire but hands are cold.
Can’t be learned and can’t be told.

If you got a truth to bend
Then I’ve got an ear to lend.
Fact and fiction tend to blend.
It makes my case hard to defend.

I take a Dusk Walk and hide
Between the day and night.
I grip a stick of dynamite,
A short fuse to ignite.

Twice as nice
I wanna give in to another vice
What is left and what is right?
Outta mind and outta sight.
Twice as nice.
Climb inside and have another bite.
Can you read between the lines?
Take a risk and pick from the vine.

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil.
Shoulda known he would not level with me. (2x)

Devil would not level with me.
Track Name: Reap What You Sow
I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil,
Dressed in such distracting clothes.
He never fails takin’ the wind from my sails
And then grounding me on the shore.
Ah ooos

And it doesn’t take long
When I summon him with my song.
He can’t help but do favors for himself
So this time I’m string him along.

If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show?
Will you only go as high as you go low?
Throw it underground and you let it grow.
Reap what you sow.
Yes reap what you sow.

It’s a tale told time and again:
“You only get what you put in.”
So if you’re only willing to pretend,
Who are you, then, in the end?

I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the devil
Shoulda known he would not level with me, no (2x)

If you’re feelin’ proud will you let it show?
Will you only go as high as you go low?
Throw it underground and you let it grow.
Reap what you sow.
Yes reap what you sow
Track Name: Get The Hell Away!
Don’t mix your medicines
Those chemicals, they don’t blend quite right.
Go take an Ambien, sit next to me
Try to stay up all night

I don’t know where that dirty mouth’s been
So why do I keep on kissin’ those lips?
I un-cast my spell
I wish you well
Would ya get a grip?

Now would you get a grip?
Go on now, get a grip.

You’re guilt personified
And she’s your doubt walkin’ on two legs
I should have known better than to think that I could get away unscathed

I am still surfacing in wakes of you lyin’ waves
But when I reach the shore, gonna catch my breath, gonna yell
“No more! Get the hell away!”

Now would you get the hell away?
Go on now, get the hell away!

Now I ride on a carousel
A dizzy spell, go on and bend my eyes
A blurry vision caused a collision of epic size
Scars were well earned
Suspicions all confirmed
That just like playing with fire:
Love a known liar
And you’re gonna get burned.

Now would you get the hell away?
Go on now, get the hell away!


And sometimes, I wish that you would brave that river.
But what good, what good could you do?
And sometimes, I wish that you would brave that river.
But what good, what good, what good, what good are you?
Track Name: Entitled.
Pleasure to watch my hands shake
Pleasure to make the mistake
Of always wanting more and more and more.
And more and more and more.

Pleasure to hear my voice quake.
Limit to my intake
Is always want to more and more and more.
And more and more and more.
I want more.

I always love a challenge.
Finding ways to balance
The need of wanting more and more and more.
And more and more and more.

It’s a pleasure to take one more step
Closer to the edge
And then taking one more and more and more.
And more and more and more.

My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens.
I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me.

I always love a challenge.
Finding ways to balance
The need of wanting more and more and more.
And more and more and more.

Pleasure to not feel worthless
When I find the purpose
For always wanting more and more and more
And more.


It’s one to wake up bright
Two for an appetite
Three for the pressure
Four for the pain
Five to stand steady
Six for my step
And seven to get ready
For eight pounding my head
And it’s nine to stay alive
When I close my eyes.
Ten to give in to waking life again
Oh how did I get us into this mess that we’re in?
I need to learn to say “when”.

Oh when

My best friends are in bottles and tiny screens.
I do my best to follow so they don’t notice me
How many can I swallow before they find me?
There’s no use running when machines are after me. (3x)
Track Name: You Don't Know What You're Missin'
Someone is sleeping on the job,
Sucking up all of my lost time.
Another clock to unwind.
If I only had a dime for every time

I looked back:
Nothin’ good to see,
But the makings of a better me.
I got by by the skin of my teeth.
I flee the scene and now I’m free.

Ohhhooo oohhhh

Keep up!
Don’t you fall behind.
Nasty knots to untie like
Cigarettes and cheap wine
Oh I want your poison, but not like you need mine.

Dogs of doubt, don’t you see?
You’re barking up the wrong tree.
Don’t you point the finger at me.
You better wise up cuz your time is up.

Dive in deeper
Sink right in.
Come a little closer
To the edge.
Oh well it’s such a shame:
You only wanna play that game.
Baby I don’t play that way
You’re not competition
I’m already winning.
You don’t know what you’re missing.

Keep up!
Don’t you fall behind.
Nasty knots to untie like
Cigarettes and cheap wine
Oh I want your poison, but not like you need mine.

Dogs of doubt, don’t you see?
You’re barking up the wrong tree.
Don’t you point the finger at me.
You better wise up cuz your time is up.


Dive in deeper
Sink right in.
Come a little closer
To the edge.
Oh well it’s such a shame:
You only wanna play that game.
Baby I don’t play that way
You’re not competition
I’m already winning.
You don’t know what you’re missing.


. . . You don’t know what you’re missing.
Track Name: Off With My Head!!!
I stumbled and I fumbled down the rabbit hole.
I tried to solve my problems through a keyhole.
Why only settle
For a potion that would make me small?
When it is not like
This place makes any sense at all.

What do you want?
Please don’t bother me.
Oh no I don’t wanna.
So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong.

Curious!
I can’t quite see through your smoky rings.
You’re foolin’ me.
So nothing’s really want it seems.
You’re killing me!
Or am I about to lose my head?
Oh now where you goin’?
If you go This way I’ll get That instead.

Now stay away!
You are gettin’ in my precious way.
I cannot play.
I am late for an important date.
Does it even matter
If the roses are white or red?
Oh now where you goin?
If you go up then I’ll go down instead.


What do you want?
Please don’t bother me!
Oh no I don’t wanna!
So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong.
And I’ll close my blinds.
Yes I’ll stay in bed.
Oh well I was once a lunatic
And I’m about to lose my head (3x)

What do you want?
Please don’t bother me!
Oh no I don’t wanna!
So I’m not even gonna say that I’m wrong.
And I’ll close my blinds.
Yes I’ll stay in bed.
I tell you, I was once a lunatic
And I’m about to lose my head (3x)

I’m goin down, down, down.
And I’m about to lose my head
