Track Name: Drunk Again
If I new fear I would know conviction. If I knew patience I would know the truth. If I knew solace I would build an army. If I knew friendship brother I'd know you. If I saw freedom I would feel some comfort. If I heard angels I would sing along. If I knew courage I'd wear it upon my sleeve. If I new better brother I'd be gone.
If I knew yesterday what I know today I'd still be stumblin', stumblin', stumblin', I'd still be drunk again.
Track Name: Home
Tonight my bed is crawling with loneliness and my brain is ringin' with cheers. I struck a chord and sung about the hypocrites along with my pain and my fears. You sung along as one with your fists in the air and I knew I'd never be alone. When the six strings are rippin' and the punks are in the pit well you know hey you know I'm home. This one, it's for you. This one, it's from the heart.
Track Name: Rosemary
It was the summer of '86 and I was stumbling down the streets. Didn't have a care in my head. The Cold War was burning Animal Boy kept on turning and I didn't care if Reagan wound up dead. The southern California sun it beat upon my face as the wheels of my McGill forever rolled. Nothing quite made sense this whole world was a mess and that old punk rock whoa it soothed my soul.
Rosemary your fire it still burns in me. They never put out that flame Rosemary.
Joey taught me how to love and how to shake it off. Milo always made me feel at home. Henry made me mad and Mike he understood my dad and Leonard always sounded best while stoned. "Danny says we gotta go", and Everything Went Black ringing in my head to this day Clean Sheets don't you know they mean a lot to this lowly old punk rocker from Santee
Rosemary your fire it still burns in me. They never put out that flame Rosemary. They never put out that flame my darling Rosemary.
Track Name: Rescue Me
They laid the bricks with some help from religion. Spread the mortar with wealth and race. Counted on us to be too ignorant to see the malice in their ways. And we oblige them with shrugging shoulders and blank expressions. I could use something, someone to come and rescue me, from my insanity. They say the writing's on the wall. Rescue me. They say the end is coming soon and I'm feeling king of useless.
They said everyone had rights then they stole 'em, shackled us with loathing and greed. Counted on us to be too self indulged to notice anything. And we oblige them with our palms up and eyes down. Like lambs to the slaughter. I could use something, someone to come and rescue me, from my humanity. They say the writing's on the wall. Rescue me. They say the end is coming soon and I'm feeling kind of hopeless.
Track Name: Jackie is a Punk
Jackie is a punk
He's hanging down in Berlin
He hopes that Judy can play
Jackie is a punk
Track Name: Judy is Suicidal
She feels the calm before the fall. This ain't the first time Judy's been against a wall but, she's gonna do this one herself cuz she don't trust no-one else. And I know she must be crying herself to sleep every night. But I hope that she's trying to get it right this time.
Whoa oh oh oh Judy is suicidal whoa oh oh she's going nowhere fast
Whoa oh oh oh Judy is suicidal whoa oh oh how long can all this fun last
She knows she's losing it this time. She's so damn tired of static all in her mind but, she's gonna do this one herself cuz she don't trust no-one else
Track Name: Outside
On the outside they stare through jaded eyes, they'll never realize the world beyond their shame. On the inside they wanna fade away, they medicate the pain that haunts them everyday. They revel in their history and spew of inhumanity not me. They talk of immortality and hookin' up with destiny...hey fucker there it went
On the outside I stare through open eyes I'll never compromise the things that I hold true. On the inside integrity runs through my veins stand my ground won't change my ways, I'm here for me not you. Babble of conspiracies and wear my heart upon my sleeve that's me. Revel in my history and keep punk rock part of this scene...ya fucker I'm on it
Track Name: Rest My Soul
I hang my head as she's walking away. I'd love to shout out but there's nothing to say. Because I know what I've done and I do what I know. Sorry just don't seem to cut it no more and I'm alone. Please rest my soul
I sit in the dark and I sift through regrets. I spill my guts and I place all my bets. As I lay in this coffin freshly buried in despair there's a faint smell of whiskey and smoke in the air and I'm alone. Please rest my soul
Before the dawn comes, please rest my soul
Before the dawn comes please rest my soul
Track Name: Santee
I remember the sun shining on Leticia Drive. I remember walking the streets to and from West Hills High. And summer days at Cazimaros were so fun. And tearing up the blacktop with The Righteous Ones. Whoa it seems like a lifetime ago but it feels so close
Santee you will always be a part of me
Track Name: Stand Up
When the wheels fall off this wagon and we're doomed. When the sun turns to black and the hours become few will you stand up with me? Will you stand up with me?
Did you ever need a friend? Someone to be there all through thick and thin. I know I have and I'm glad each day for my brothers, my family, my friends
When the wheels fall off this wagon and we're doomed. When the sun turns to black and the hours become few will you stand up with me? Will you stand up with me? When the earth starts meltin' and all hell's breaking loose, people going crazy cuz there's nothing left to lose. Stand up with me. Will you stand up with me? Because I'd stand up with you
Isolation breeds darkness. Human connection is essential for a life well lived. So guard your brothers with your might and know I've got your back for life
Track Name: Reason to Live
I need a reason to live. I see smiling faces, motivation don't hang with me. I need a reason to hope. I feel pain inside me, and I just might be dying again. I need a reason. Give me a reason
I need a reason just one'll do I won't beg. I need a reason to live
I need a reason just one'll do I won't beg. I need a reason to live
I need a reason to live. I've got past mistakes and so many heartbreaks all inside of me. I need a reason to dream. I feel pain inside me and I just might be dying again
Track Name: This One's in E
There's a feeling inside me it's tugging at my heartstrings it's penetrating deep in my mind. It's shared by the many consummated by the few and it won't be underscored this time. It's in the promise of a new day, the innocence of child's play the hope of a changing tide. It's embedded in the fears the ambivalence and tears of a nation who has lost it's pride.
Then we raise our eyes to the sky, shout to the heavens why. Never realizing the answers they come from inside
Ah ah ah ha where do we go from here?
Ah ah ah ha where do we go from here?
There's a feeling inside me it's longing for liberty it's tired of the current state of things. It wants change today got no time for tomorrow and it won't stop for anything. It's in the promise of a new day, the innocence of child's play the hope of a changing tide. It's embedded in the fears the ambivalence and tears of a nation who has lost it's mind
Track Name: Worried About You
There's a psycho out tonight and he's killing all the pretty girls
You. I'm worried bout you
There's a psycho out tonight and he's killing all the pretty girls, just like you. Lock the doors and pull the blinds. Grab the gun and run and hide my dear. I'll be home soon
You. I'm worried bout you
