Track Name: Blind
I fell under your spell
With no concern or discern
And I was, mesmerized by your will to please
And everything is a blur

Pictures they come and go
And say, a thousand words
But none speak clearer than yours

I'm Blind, Blind to the truth
Though I've seen a million lies
I still believe you

I remember when I first saw your stripes
And I, should have run for the hills
Maybe my loyalty overshadowed sense
Leaving too much room for abuse


Pictures they come and go
And say, a thousand words
But none speak clearer than yours


I'm Blind, Blind to the truth
Though I've seen a million lies
I still believe in you


Now it's over and long been done
And I don't have any regrets
For all the pain and strain and suffering endured
A path to the pot of gold was laid


Pictures they come and go
And say, a thousand words
But none speak clearer than yours


I'm Blind, Blind to the truth
Though I've seen a million lies
I still believe you


You're Blind, Blind to the truth
Though You've seen a lot of light
You still believe you
Track Name: Drift Away
Drift away, far away from me
Fly away, from me
You light my days, set the road before me
Far away, from me

And in the light of day
You come and rescue me

It takes a lot of love and you don't want to be around
It's all a mystery and you were blinded by the sound
Track Name: Seen Better Days
People keep tellin' me that
There'll be better days
And don't let life take you down

Onward and upward they rise and
I'm still barely holdin' on
And I can't see a change

Never before have I felt this spite
And I'm not getting lost inside your light
It's hard to make it through

So I raise a glass to the lower class
and you can shove your views right up your ass
It's all day by day

Oh, hangin' on, is the hardest thing

I've Seen Better Days...But, I'm Still Alive

As the days go on I
Can't find another way and
I'm not pullin' through

Livin' every day in hopes that
Things'll turn around and
I can get back on me feet

Never before have I lost this fight
But the hell I feel is eatin' me alive
What's it all worth to you ?

Workin' all day just to make ends meet
And comin' up short at the end of the week
Gonna drink it all away

Oh, hangin' on, is the hardest thing

I've Seen Better Days...But, I'm Still Alive
Track Name: Wild Winds
Pictures of you
Are still on my mind
How you light up my world
And the fire burns inside

This jaded heart of lies
Cannot take anymore pain
A twist in the wind
A shot through the brain

And when it all comes down
Will you be the one around
Will you look into my eyes
Will you stand inside the shadows
Of this lonely mans disguise


So cold, living in the Wild Winds of home


Your heartless sorrow
Dripping from your soul
Asserting all your pain
Force feeding your control


And when it all comes down
Will you be the one around
Will you look into my eyes
Will you stand inside the shadows
Of this lonely mans disguise


So cold, living in the Wild Winds of home


Pictures of you
Are still on my mind
How you light up my world
And the fire burns inside

This jaded heart of lies
Cannot take anymore pain
A twist in the wind
A shot through the brain

And when it all comes down
Will you be the one around
Will you look into my eyes
Will you stand inside the shadows
Of this lonely mans disguise


So cold, living in the Wild Winds of home
Track Name: Broken Man Blues/Life's Too Short
Maybe I'm a broken man, tired and cold
Still a boy trapped in nowhere but feeling quite old
Broken by a broken man
Looking from my view I'm scared to think I might be breakin' you to

Sometimes I feel up, other times like I'm fallin' down
Trying just keep myself up off the ground
Sometimes I wish that you were around
Even if I'm a broken man, I'm gonna take the higher ground

Feelin' all tore up, amusing myself with abuse
Longin' for your voice to ease these swollen blues
To ease these swollen blues
Well, I can tell you while you're away I'm feelin' blue

Broken Man staring up at the stars, how long have we been driftin'?
Look at all the time we've wasted, hey man, we got to be shiftin'
Follow the changin' winds
Freedom's in our hands if we just let go of that line in the sand


Need to let go of a broken past
Need to forgive and forget the past
Take off that mask

Life's too short to live in the past, and we just need to laugh
