Track Name: Snapshot
Well there's no need to live your life
Living in shame & fear
For we are just a snapshot of life
Over millions of years...
Track Name: I Shall Be Released
They say everything can be replaced
They say every distance is not near
So I remember every single face of everyONE, whoa, who put me here

Chorus:
I see my light come shining
From the west down to the east
Any day now, any day now
I shall be released

They say everyONE needs protection
They say everyONE must fall
But I swear I have seen my reflection and it somewhere, so high, I am above this wall

(Chorus)

There stands someONE in this lonely crowd
SomeONE who swears they are not to blame
In my dreams I can hear them screaming
Shouting out the they were framed, and so WE say…

WE see our light come shining…WE shall be released…
Track Name: So Long
I, I see the man I could have been
I, I feel that I'm wearing thin
I know it's been so long

Think, think twice before you knock on the door
'Cause I, I've been around this neighborhood
I've seen this many times before

I've, I've seen a lot of people go wrong
And you, you know, that you were not one
Maybe that's why you're gone
Maybe that's why you're gone
Maybe that's why, maybe that's why
Maybe that's why you're gone
Track Name: Because of You
Higher than the sky, brighter than the moon
Warmer than the sun, this world is filled with fun
Because of you, because of you

I am so at ease with my little chickadee
The greatest in the land, this life is pretty grand
Because of you, because of you

You know that I,
I know, that you will love me 'til forever
And I, I know, that you
You're the woman from my dreams
I'm begging you darlin' please
Stay with me, everything is better, better,
Because of you, because of you

Higher than the sky, brighter than the moon
Warmer than the sun, this world is filled with fun
Because of you, because of you
Track Name: Wade
I once knew a man, a man from Maine
Who worked on the ocean as a lobster man
Sorrento was the town where he was from
This man was as tall as Paul Bunyan

He always made us food to eat
Like spaghetti with spiced sausage
He took good care and he kept us warm
He gave us shelter from the storm

That's Wade, Wade
That's Wade, Wade

His boat was big, his house was small
Which was quite strange 'cause he was so tall
He built us kids a clubhouse shack
He drove around town in a Cadillac

Short by boat, long by car
He boated us kids to Bar Harbor
On the Fourth of July he took us there
For fireworks and fun for all to share

That's Wade, Wade
That's Wade, Wade

Been years since I've seen him, but some do tell
He's found himself a home that fits him well
The name of his boat is the Michelle Lee
One day soon, I hope to see

Wade, Wade, Wade, That's Wade
Track Name: Sorrento
(instrumental)
Track Name: Ain't It Something
Ain’t it something, the way I feel?
You broke me down so hard I may never heal
You chewed me up and you spit me out
But there’s something inside you I can’t live without, without, no

Every time you break me down like you do
Makes it so much harder to say that I love you

Well ain’t it something, the way you are?
You pull me over and then you steal my car
Well you can take it and you can drive away
But I know you won’t ‘cause you don’t wanna stop this play, this play, no

Every time you break me down like you do
Makes it so much harder to say that I love you

Ain’t it something, but what can I do?
Every time you talk to me you leave me sad and blue
I think you’re going to be the wind that breaks the branches off of my tree
oh baby, why won’t you just leave me?
Ain’t in something, you and me?
You’re the wind that broke the branches off of my tree
But I’m still standing and I’m still strong
You’ll look for me, baby but I’ll be long gone, long gone

Every time you break me down like you do
Makes it so much easier to leave you!

Now ain’t it something? Ain’t it something? Ain’t it something? Ain’t it something?
Track Name: Burning Old Pictures Of You
Wearin jeans and bakin beans makes me feel mighty nice.
Hot Java in the winter time that sure fits my size.
If there’s one thing I long in this world to do,
It’s drinkin and smokin and burnin old pictures of you.

Burnin old pictures of you,
I keep burnin old pictures of you.
Oh, what can I do, but keep burnin old pictures of you?

I wake up, in the morning, feelin dry as can be.
Aint got no clean water, what a goddamn tragedy.
Walkin down to the Eden General store in the cold morning rain,
While your picture still resonates in my tired hazy brain.

I spilled ketchup on my blanket, I spilled ketchup on my guitar.
Corn whiskey makin me sloppy and I just aint up to par.
But it doesn’t matter much why I, I feel so blue
Cause I keep drinkin and smokin and burnin old pictures of you.

Burnin old pictures of you,
I keep burnin old pictures of you.
Oh, what can I do, but keep burnin old pictures of you?

I burned down my house, now all my shit is gone
Please don’t tell the insurance man about my little song
Well they put me up in a motel with nothing else to do
Accept for drinkin and smoking and burnin old pictures of you

Burnin old pictures of you,
I keep burnin old pictures of you.
Oh, what can I do, but keep burnin old pictures of you?

Burnin old pictures of you,
I keep burnin old pictures of you.
Oh, what can I do, but keep burnin old pictures of you?
Track Name: Jekyll & Hyde (Sad & Blue)
You may look at me and feel that I’m O.K.
Take one look inside and you can see that’s not the way
My river's gonna dry up no matter what I may do
Mountains gonna crumble, crush my dreams, leave me sad and blue

Sad and blue, so sad and blue
And there ain’t a single thing I can do
Well don’t you think that that boy sounds a little like you?
Well don’t you think that boy sounds a little like you? Mmhmm

You may look at him and feel that he’s alright
He’s a loose canon on a battleship inside his mind
His ocean’s gonna rage until it breaks him down inside
He’s stuck inside a wooden cage that fills with the
rolling tide

Rolling tide, so sad and blue
As it wanders across that sea
Well don’t you think that that boy sounds a little like me?
Well don’t you think that boy sounds a little like me? Mmhmm

Sad and blue so sad but true
That there ain’t a single one we can trust
Well don’t you think that those boys sound a little like us?
Well don’t you think those boys sound a little like us? Mmhmm

You may look at us and feel that we’re O.K. well ya know,
You’re damn right we are now that we are on our way
No more mountains, no more rivers we’re just following our only dream

It’s just you and I sailing the seven seas
It’s just Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde sailing the seven seas
It’s just you and I stuck inside an endless dream
Track Name: Without A Flame
This is the last time to be played for a fool
Shoot ‘em down, yeah you shot ‘em down
Breaking the back of the broken mule
Now it’s over and you are through

A cannonball and a cannon, without a flame
Just becomes a heavy weight again
An eagle feather without the wind
Never will it fly again

Train went off the track, didn’t you hear it fall?
They took our land, destroyed it all
Just like the boat that will never sail the sea
You know this life wasn’t meant to be
Wasn’t meant to be
Wasn’t meant for me

The wild horse is behind the fence
Talked with devil and done it’s dance
This is the final chapter so turn the final page
Cage the eagle and burn the sage

A cannonball and a cannon, without a flame
Just becomes a heavy weight again
Just like the boat that will never touch that sea
Yeah, you know this life wasn’t meant to be

Train went off the track, didn’t you hear it fall?
They took our land, destroyed it all
Just like the boat that will never sail the sea
You know this life wasn’t meant to be

Train went off the track, didn’t you hear it fall?
They stole our land, destroyed it all
Just like the man that will never be set free
You know this life wasn’t meant to be
Wasn’t meant to be
Wasn’t meant for me
Track Name: Volition
Voice One
We will find our way, one day, one day…
We will.

Voice Two
Have the will to forgive the ones who cause our pain…
We will.

Voice Three
Love your grandmother and grandfather and all
Love your mother and your father and all
Love your sister and your brother and all
Love your daughter and your son and all
We will.
Track Name: Maxie Boy (We Live On)
You really knew how to write a song
You really knew how to lead a band
We all know that something went wrong
But that don’t mean that we understand

And you know that I,
I’ve seen a lot of people go wrong
And you, you know that you are not one
We all know that you’re not gone
You live on

Mr. Fly why’d you let me sleep?
Had your day, but they took your moonshine away
We will see you eventually
But that don’t mean that you’ve gone away

And you know that I,
I’ve seen a lot of people go wrong
And you, you know that you are not one
We all know that you’re not gone
You live on

You live on when we sing your songs
You live on when we tell your tales
You live on when we sing your songs
We live on when we sing along

You know that I, I feel that I am wearing thin
When I, I see the man you could have been
We all know that you live on, Maxie boy…
Track Name: Happy Just To Know Your Name
I feel happy, happy just to know your name
I feel happy, happy just to know your name

It's been a long time coming, thing will never be the same
Our love's so toxic, we only have ourselves to blame
I'm a bird, you're a tree
I'll fly away and let you be
I hope someday you say to me

I feel happy, happy just to know your name
I feel happy, happy just to know your name

It's been a long hard road and there's no turning back
Our love broke down, so far off the beaten track
I'm a truck, you're a town
I'll drive away without a sound
Highway bound I feel free
I hope someday you say to me

I feel happy, happy just to know your name
I feel happy, happy just to know your name

I'm a river, you're a stone
I'll swim away, leave you alone
On my own towards the sea
I hope someday you say to me

I just feel so happy, happy just to know your name
