Track Name: Let's Start a Fight
I’m saying we’ll be on time,
I can’t turn it on a dime.
Sit back try to unwind,
Words they can be unkind.

I’m getting sick and tired.
I’ve had enough, this time.

So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.

Shouting won’t turn the wheel,
Or help us through this ordeal.
Your silence hurts even more,
In stillness, we’ll start a war.

I’m getting sick and tired.
I’ve had enough, this time.

So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.

I can’t wait, ‘till it’s over.
I can’t wait, for the next one.

So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
So let’s start a, a fight.
Track Name: Eleanor
His words don’t come easy, it’s been hard to disguise.
She knows something’s wrong, just by the look in his eyes.
His steps are reluctant, as he comes through the door.
He thinks he’s seen her before.

When she feels his fear, when his mind begins to stray,
She whispers softly to him, “everything’s gonna be OK.”

Now he’s in a place, where every day is the same.
They come and they sit and repeat their names.
When he remembers, they say goodbye.
Eleanor waits, for another try.

When she feels his fear, when his mind begins to stray,
She whispers softly to him, “everything’s gonna be OK.”

Eleanor waits,
Eleanor weeps,
Tonight she holds on tightly to him, until he falls asleep.

Oh take me back, across the shore,
Back to that place we were before,
When we were young, in our hearts,
Oh God, I miss you Eleanor.

That was our place, for you and me,
And now it haunts my memory.
And you are like, a living ghost,
And you don’t know me, anymore.

Eleanor waits,
Eleanor weeps,
She holds on tightly to him, until he falls asleep.

Eleanor waits,
Eleanor weeps,
She holds on tightly to what God will let her keep.
Track Name: Feeling Blue
I’m feeling blue and I don’t know what to do,
So darling please can I tell you, about my blues.

I’m feeling blue this isn’t new,
It’s like my soul’s been cut in two,
And someone stuck it back together using gloom.

I’ll leave my blues in the back,
In a brown, paper sack,
And light in on fire, while hoping that,
They’ll soon be done.

I am feeling blue, at this time,
Why? I haven’t got a clue.
But I hope I will make it through.

I’m feeling blue and now I missed our rendezvous,
My blueness is pari passu, with the shaking in my boots.

And now I see you in my soup,
And I’ve got nothing left to lose.
So I blew a kiss and saved it just for you.

I’ll leave my blues in the back,
In a brown, paper sack,
And light in on fire, while hoping that,
They’ll soon be done.

I am feeling blue, at this time,
Why? I haven’t got a clue.
But I hope I will make it through.
Track Name: Blind and Senseless
I believe the science of the start,
That worshippers cannot be very smart.
But when all of them are gone,
And they have been proven wrong,
Where will we find a cause to carry on?

I wish that I was blind,
And senseless,
In this senseless time,
Where all is pantomime.

Yes it would be sublime,
To be senseless:
It’s my white-collar crime.
And they’ll lock me away in a five-and-dime.

I’m grateful I can safely write these lines,
Reveal the foolish thoughts that taunt my mind.
And I hope that in this way,
A friend will come some day,
To banish all my troubles far away.

I wish that I was blind,
And senseless,
In this senseless time,
Where all is pantomime.

Yes it would be sublime,
To be senseless:
It’s my white-collar crime.
And they’ll lock me away in a five and dime.

I wish that I was blind,
And senseless,
In this senseless time,
Where all is pantomime.

Yes it would be sublime,
To be senseless:
It’s my white-collar crime.
And they’ll lock me away in a five and dime.
And they’ll lock me away in a five and dime.
And they’ll lock me away in a five and dime.
And they’ll lock me away.
Track Name: It's All Right
Ever since that moment, I can’t believe it’s real.
My mind is racing; I find it hard to feel.
We sat together in a daze,
And you could barely here me say -

It’s all right,
You’ve got me on your side and I am right,
I am right ... here.

You and me together, there’s nothing we can’t do.
This stormy weather, you know we’ll make it through.
And if you find you’re feeling low,
I’ll be right here to let you know -

It’s all right,
You’ve got me on your side and I am right,
I am right.
It’s OK,
Although there may be bumps along the way,
It’s OK.

Troubles are blind, just like tragedies.
And though fate can be accepted, it remains a bitter tease.
But with strength in our minds and hope perched in our soul,
We’ll hold on, until this gale comes to cease.

It’s all right,
You’ve got me on your side and I am right,
I am right.
It’s OK,
Although there may be bumps along the way,
It’s OK.
Hold my hand, as if it were the last time you had,
To hold my hand.
It’s all right,
You’ve got me on your side and I am right,
I am right…here.
