Track Name: You Know This Song By Heart
Met a girl with a heart of gold
Saw me and her and we’re growing old
You know this song by heart

Took her out and we saw the band
She taught me how to dance with a drink in my hand
You know this song by heart

One and one and we’re making two
Taught me how to love, now I’m thanking you
You know this song by heart

She’s the kind of girl who can make a man
Her name was Eve when the story began
You know this song by heart

CHORUS:
You know this song by heart
I know you know this song by heart
You know this song by heart

There’s a lot of little fish in the sea
Any one could’ve made it with me
You know this song by heart

If would’ve been with one of them
Then I would’ve missed the finest gem
You know this song by heart

Met a girl with a heart of gold
Saw me and her and we’re growing old
You know this song by heart

One and one and we’re making two
Taught me how to love now I’m thanking you
You know this song by heart

Could’ve loved you, but I let you go
Thought a man should’ve wanted more
You know this song by heart

Could’ve caught me, but you let me fall
Taught a man he didn’t know it all
You know this song by heart

CHORUS
Track Name: Heavy Heart
There was a time when I thought I had it all
A love that was light like the wind
But the mind has a way of convincing the heart
That everything is better than it is

A young man in love doesn't know what's in store
With a siren whose eyes like the sun
Will burn right through him, leaving him wanting more
It hurts so good that he will never run

CHORUS:
Your heavy heart is weighing me down
It's holding me under, till my breath runs out
Your heavy heart is pushing me round
And it's buried me in my grave

Tell me truth you mean to do me like this
Burn me up, burn me out of my mind
When our skin's so hot, that you can hear it hiss
But a cost so great that it's left me blind

I thought there was much more that I could learn from you
More than another lesson learned
Funny how things turn out, and how I never knew
It's not my love by my soul that you burned

BRIDGE:
I love you with everything I've got
And I hoped that you would see
That me being here with you
Is all you'd ever need

But you couldn't let it go
All the pain that came before
So you had to take it out on me
And try to settle the score

CHORUS
Track Name: I've Been There
The Devil looks very nice
When she’s dressed in black and white
Never trust someone who habitually lies
Like a woman who won’t see you lest she’s in a disguise

CHORUS:
I’ve been there
I’ve been there before
I’ve been there
She’s left me wanting more, more, more

I don’t know if I could ever love her
Especially when she’s seducing others
But she drives me wild when she’s undercover
Even when she’s bringing out the whips and the leather

CHORUS

Don’t you think we should quiet down
Protect them from the screams and the shouts
Keeping everything just between ourselves
And we’ll save it til they’re gone, we’ll bring down the house

CHORUS
Track Name: Make Her Scream
When I was merely 10 years old
My grandpa was a seasoned soul
We sat out on that porch
And he would tell me just how life would be

He liked to talk about the world
But most of all the pretty girls
There are those that’ll give you a twirl
This is what he said to me

CHORUS:
There’s a woman wanna steal your soul
There’s a women make a young man old
There’s a woman gon’ try to make you mean
But first you gotta, you gotta make her scream

Told me ‘bout a business man
Found himself on the Yucatan
Senorita playing in the sane
He got more than he bargained for

Wouldn’t love him ‘til she saw him plead
He knew that she was all he’d need
Got her hotter than 200 degrees
Then he left her beggin’ for more

CHORUS

All night, All night, Alright, Alright, All night, All night, Alright, Alright, Ooooh

The moral of the story son
When you go and you get you some
You gotta beat the woman to the punch
Let her know this is how it’s gonna be

That sage advice from a business man
Who met a girl playing in the sand
He kept on loving her just as he can
This is what he said to me

Ya know, boy, you’re gonna pay
Gonna end up giving it away
Unless you hear what I say
And show your woman how her body’s made

You gotta kiss the right place
To get that look on her face
Then when she’s gotten a taste
You show her how her heart can race

CHORUS
Track Name: Devil May Care
When I held to keep you warm
The blood of my lover’s heart stained my arms
You told me you loved me and we’d meet again
If I found your killer and my revenge
I’ll say goodbye but it’s just the beginning for a hardened soul

So I loaded my only gun
And set off, desperate, chasing down that setting sun
To find the thieving bastard whose wicked eye
In an errant gunshot stole my wife

The say Devil May Care, but I know they’re wrong
That man’s got too many sins to call hell his home
Forgive him, you can try, but he’s not the kind to atone
They saw Devil May Care, but I know they’re wrong

When I get him square in my sights
I’ll turn his heartless living into endless night
Because I got a message to deliver as well
You gotta have a god-damned soul to find a warm welcome in Hell.

They say Devil May Care, but I know they’re wrong
Because that man’s got too many sins to call hell his home

They say Devil May Care, but I know they’re wrong
So I’ll be bringing hell in my hand to send that killer home
I’m not afraid of revenge can bring
Because I’m not too proud to atone.
Track Name: Olyphants
Throw into the wind
Conscious of the score
Finger in the pin
Life will never be like before

Resistance is the best
Fired from a gun
Package them with death
Send them back to where they belong

The blast will make you flinch
Exploding to your core
Mangles every inch
A young man learns the horror of war

Resistance is the best
Fired from a gun
Package them with death
Send them back to where they belong

HEY THERE! SOLDIER!
Were there mothers?
Gunned down by your
Infantry of death and destruction

HEY THERE! MOTHER!
Were there soldiers?
Raping daughters
An infantry of death and destruction

The pain of war
It's endless wrath
Cannot exceed / The Woe of Aftermath
Track Name: Fallen Soldier Part I
Seven days from where I came with ringing in my ears
Left it all to prove my worth, I was so damn naive

Several times throughout my life, I claimed to know it all
Hard to say how far I strayed to make those proud men fall

Didn’t want to fight, didn’t want to die
I killed them all, blood soaked the soil

Bullets sprayed across in waves, through flesh and bone they tore
No choice had I just fight or die, become a pawn of war

Didn’t want to die, didn’t want to fight
I killed them all, blood soaked the soil

I’ve got to stop it all to save my scarred up mind
I’ve got to take my life the only thought that’s right

Didn’t want to fight, didn’t want to die
I killed them all, blood soaked the soil
For ideals of which, I once have stood
Cannot bring back the dead, how I wish I could
There’s only one last chance to bring my mind some peace
Track Name: Fallen Soldier Part II
Forgive me. I have sinned
Take me back to the beginning
I know what I have done
To save myself from this world of hell
I only wanted to make you proud
I only wanted to make you proud

Save me. I have sinned.
Take me back to the beginning
I know what I have done
To save myself from this world of hell
I only wanted to make you proud
I only wanted to make you proud
Track Name: Bombs Away
Bombs are falling, all around me
Shockwaves shake up my legs

Run for cover, they are coming
Death will find you hiding

Dogs are crawling, crying banshees
Spine tingles every limb

Bombs are falling, all around me
Shockwaves shake up my legs

If it were up to me
We’d just agree
To not put up a fight
So that we might

Buzzing over, diving under
Huddled to the ground

No escaping desperation
Suffering the sounds

Watch out! Fallout!
No escaping this

World War! Same score!
Line them up again
