Track Name: The Atlantic
Hmm Lord, hmm Lord
I've been traded away one too many times before
Hmm Lord, hmm Lord
Working in the fields until it aches my bone
I'd pay to see the day my freedom is born

As the creaking ships at night keep me awake
I plot my own sweet escape
So boy, don't you follow me home
But if you do I'll let you know when we're gonna break

Hmm Lord, hmm Lord
White man come to take me from my earth
Says "son I bought you from your worth
A worth that was dirt."

So as the creaking ships at night keep me awake
I plot my own sweet escape
So boy, don't you follow me home
But if you do I'll let you know when we're gonna break

When we're gonna break...
Track Name: We Will All
Through the writings on the wall
I can hear her plea and call for someone if not all
Her makeup is streaming down her face
Where it once covered proof of abuse

But I will pray for better days
I will hope for no more rain
I will stop this pain
To hear her say:

Won't you hold your own today?
For we all find a way

I see her walking home from work alone in the rain
So hard to see her pain on her face
And oh, what I would do to the man who
Put the scars along your face

But I will pray for better days
I will hope for no more rain
I will stop this pain
To hear her say:

Won't you hold your own today?
For we all find a way
Track Name: Demonic Woman
Demonic woman won't you pry your teeth off of my heart?
Demonic woman I'm trying to plea but you just tear me apart
I can feel them butterflies
As I try to disguise
The feeling I get when your eyes glow red and you come my way...
To steal my heart

Demonic woman I've been kind to you baby, from the start
Demonic woman can't believe what you're doing, I've become lost
You make my knees start to shake
And my spirit start to break
For the feeling I get when you come my way to steal my heart...
Is the worst feeling of all

I tried, I tried
And I tried, I tried to stop her
You know I tried, I tried
And I tried, I tried to stop her
But she just kept right on

Demonic woman I've been trying to talk to you
But I can't get through
My words are wrong, you've heard this song
But I'll sing until I turn blue
So don't eat my heart
Track Name: Monster
Sand dunes, strong breeze is all I see and feel
As I walk down lost, shirt wrapped around my feet, yet
Don't know where I am or where I'm supposed to go
But one thing I know is I'm sure as hell lost
So he brought me here? Who turned me out?
Who manipulated my brain to thinking this is right?
Last thing I remember was a gun in my hand
And a man in my head, this is what he said:

March on boy, march on and never look back again x2

I'm a monster, I'm a killer, I'm a nightmare taking over your head
I'm a sinnin' man, son of a preacher man, lock and load I'll leave you for dead
'Cause I've been told, that I should know all I do is give them hell
I'm a monster, cold hearted killer that I just cant' get out of my head

Eyes wide laid down by the riverside
Where I was reassured that this was my demise
Picked apart from every limb and built to kill
My soul ripped out, with darkness filled, saying:

March on boy, march on and never look back again x2

I'm a monster, I'm a killer, I'm a nightmare taking over your head
I'm a sinnin' man, son of a preacher man, lock and load I'll leave you for dead
'Cause I've been told, that I should know all I do is give them hell
I'm a monster, cold hearted killer that I just cant' get out of my head
Track Name: Save My Soul
Hold on tight, don't be surprised
By the feelings that may creep inside
Get that soul of yours saved boy, away from sin
Or die all alone

The years that I've spent dressed in sin
Are no more than the years I've grown
Troubled followed my whole, split between right and wrong
When life threw away its helping hand

So forgive me father, forgive me all
The prodigal one never came to become
Been swimming in a sea, infested with sin
Searching for the one who can

Save my soul
So I can see
So I can breath
So I can live

Been on life's road for so long
Trying to find the light that shined down before
But there seems to be no light, just lost in the night
Oh this world has no pity on my soul

So forgive me mother, forgive me all
The prodigal one never came to become
Been swimming in a sea, infested with sin
Searching for the one who can

Save my soul
So I can see
So I can breath
So I can live

Track Name: Mighty King Dollar
PSA (Public Service Announcement)
Track Name: Bay Of Pigs
Hey now listen up
Lend me your ears, don't interrupt
Seen those with an upright nose?
I swear they're real, with suits to kill
They won't let me be
And they'll make you sing

Tell me all I wanna hear
When lies unfold, you strike with fear
A ruthless man, a ruthless plan
By the time your done, there'll be no one
They won't let ya be
And they'll make you sing

They'll hide all bodies down
By the Bay of Pigs x2

Now I don't mind keeping quiet
As the years multiply
But soon enough, we'll have enough
They'll be no more of this, no more
And they'll let ya be
No you won't have to sing

'Cuz they'll hide all bodies down
By the Bay of Pigs x2
Track Name: Take Me Home
Remembering the days that weren't so hard
When your love for me shined brighter than a star
When we surpassed it all, made everyday seem new
Before evil took over you
How could you be so cold?
How could you let that heart of yours turn black as coal

'Cuz I worked everyday just to try and keep you by my side
But you just got up and left me all alone
Now I sit and I cry:

No, take me home
I wanna go away from here

I can't keep moving on with one side of my heart
For life apart is life without a start
How I prayed things would get better
And all the stormy weather would not cloud up all my days

'Cuz I worked everyday just to try and keep you by my side
But you just got up and left me all alone
Now I sit and I cry:

No, take me home
I wanna go away from here
Track Name: Shine On
Darkness falls on our side of town
Pack your bags we must go now
Heard they're searching for a sinner soul
It's unfortunate, but we must go

For the sun/son left us all
For better or for war
And I can't say if he'll return to shine on

I can hear there freedom ring
Listen closely, you'll hear them sing:
It's all lies don't believe what they told ya
No one rang that bell

For the son/son left us all
For better or for war
And I can't say if he'll return to shine on

So I won't wait
No I won't wait
For you to shine on 'cuz we can't take...

Don't look back keep your eyes on the road
Because I can't tell you if they'll someday show
We'll make it out of this black hole town
That I promise you

For the son/son left us all
For better or for war
And I can't say if he'll return to shine on

So I won't wait
No I won't wait
For you to shine on 'cuz we can't take...

Anymore when the ground's so cold
I hope big brother that you'll still show me the way
I'll stand by either of your sides
And march left, right 'till we hear them cry:

I won't wait
No I won't wait
For you to shine on 'cuz we can't take...
Track Name: Old Callings
Tell me I'm not wrong
For not feeling the way a guardian should feel over it's young
This child was never planned
This child was never wanted only came from anger and hate
Tell me I'm not wrong
For what happens inside of me when I look deep into your eyes
For I was the innocent one
Then came those with their guns
And with time came you, my son

But I, oh I wait on the sun to set down on these awful days
And I, oh I wait on a better tomorrow if not for me, then for you

So who are you?
To ignore the old callings of our time
And who are you?
To drown your ears from our broken song

I am not at fault for the anger I wield
Like a sword, when you claim to love me
For I was beaten and battered down
Stripped, a queen with her crown
As they forced hell upon me

But I, oh I wait on the sun to set down on these awful days
And I, oh I wait on a better tomorrow if not for me, then for you

So who are you?
To ignore the old callings of our time
And who are you?
To drown your ears from our broken song

1, 2 are beaten down
3, 4 stand from the floor
5, 6 come out from their hiding to save every-
1, 2 are beaten down
3, 4 stand from the floor
5,6 come out from their hiding to save everyone
Save everyone

So who are you?
To ignore the old callings of our time
And who are you?
To drown your ears from our broken song
