Track Name: Eyes on the Current
"Eyes on the Current" (D. Blood)

I am only building on what you said before
But you know I'm not willing to sacrifice it all

Eyes on the current as the time goes with the tide
Eyes on the current as the time goes with the tide
Track Name: Happiness
"Happiness" (D. Blood)

Some will be kind to you, show them you care
Some may want to hurt you with sticks and stones
Some may be blind to you, don't be afraid
Some may defy you, don't back down

As long as the sun still shines
I hope I can ease your mind
Because happiness is easy to find

Some may guide you, hear what they say
Some may rely on you, just be brave
Some may lie to you, just be aware
And when you can't push through, just give it a try

As long as the sun still shines
I hope I can ease your mind
Because happiness is easy to find

I'll walk beside you whenever I can
You've got your whole life to seize the day

As long as the sun still shines
I hope I can ease your mind
Because happiness is easy to find
Track Name: Green Bottle
"Green Bottle" (D. Blood)

I meant it when I said that I won't ever change
I can only change the way that I behave

It always gets me down

Staring at this dead green bottle on the floor
I'm never gonna reach that bottom anymore

It's always on my mind

Oh Delilah, please be my love
You can have what you want
Oh Delilah please don't deny my love
You can have what you want
Track Name: When We Were Young
"When We Were Young" (D. Blood)

When we were young and stupid
When we were young
So little time that we would spend alone
When we were young

I don't know anything
All my days are fading

We used to think that this day would never come
When we were young
Are we still alive, will we ever find that place that we once loved
When we were young?

I don't know anything
All my days are fading

You turn the lights out and go

I don't know anything
All my days are fading
Track Name: Monsters
"Monsters" (D. Blood)

Please don't let the ghosts come in

Just close up all the doors

You're not that child I used to know before

Don't let him push his weight on you

Or validate his sins

You don't deserve the trouble he's put you in



Maybe I could skip my lunch

And meet you after five

We could talk about it all nigh
t
I will be your safety net to catch you when you fall

Better times still lay ahead

Oh, something's going wrong

You have given up your life

To feed another hand

Wash away that emptiness if you can

She is growing far too thin

She's lost inside her mind

She doesn'twant our help, even if we tried

Oh, something's going wrong
Track Name: Gimme Some Soul
"Gimme Some Soul" (D. Blood)

Trees drop, malls crop sitting on blacktops
Hot wax, four tracks blowing up smoke stacks
Land fills, minds spill, passing out hand bills
Just tell me who or what is coming for me

Gimme some soul

Small type, all hype, out of work, out of sight
Play dead, stay fed, don't believe what you've read
Fat cats, eat gas, beaten' on fake stats
Can't get my foot in the door of industry

Gimme some soul

Downloads, choke hold, looking young, feeling old
Waste time, feel fine, looking for the bottom line
Soft sale, retail, images turning pale
They say the kid's alright, they don't fool me

Gimme some soul

Born late, high stakes, make amends with your fate
Take time, rewind, robbing all the people blind
Drone rock, take stock, seeing where the needle drops
Stare down at bottles that sit in empty seats

Gimme some soul
Track Name: Flavor of the Day
"Flavor of the Day" (D. Blood)

The grass is always greener when the load’s too much to take
I’m feeling sick when I come ‘round thinkin’
To your own twisted ways
It all seems too convenient like some innocent exchange
I’m tired of being used and thrown away

I took that path too many times, too many times you’ve strayed
I traded in my deck of cards for a flavor of the day
You emptied out my broken heart with a ticket and a spade
I’m sick of being used and thrown away

It rattled my mind going ‘round that bend
Couldn’t pick which way my feet should go
Holding the dice took so long to mend
You brushed me off with pity and pretended to be my friend

Every time you get in touch it all seems so contrived
I was at best your back up plan when you needed to unwind
I thought I was the sentimental type but it’s just too late
I’m happy now with the life I live today
Track Name: Precious Time
"Precious Time" (D. Blood)

What a day we have had
Sitting around sharing a smile
At the park, 'round the bend
We'll take it all in
Friends 'till the end

Ask me all you need to know
I'll take you where you want to go

Precious Time, please don't waste this time

All the girls know your name
They gather around they want to be in your game
Everyone gets a smile
You pass them around mile after mile

Ask me all you need to know
I'll take you where you want to go

Precious Time, please don't waste this time

And late at night when darkness appears
We'll turn down the lights but don't you fear
We'll make things right, keep snug and tight
And safe every night

Then one day, you'll be a man
If you still want to play you can be in my band
You could play the keys or tamborine
Just take it from the heart you'll see what I mean

Ask me all you need to know
I'll take you where you want to go

Precious Time, please don't waste this time
Track Name: Last Light
"Last Light" (D. Blood)

No you haven't seen the last light of me

Standing by your Chinese wall

You can tell all your friends just how much I really meant

But that don't matter much to me



It's time we had a look

No you haven't seen the last light of me

Looking right through your empty heart

You can't condemn me like Leonard Da Vinci

There's a million ways I could cross your mind

It's time we had a look
I'd like to know

No you haven't seen the last light of me

Sitting by the spanish moss

You better look where you cross

There's a line that we have walked

That's throwing shadows we can't see

It's time we had a look

I'd like to know



No you haven't seen the last light of me
Track Name: Fill in the Blanks
"Fill in the Blanks" (D. Blood)

Feeling ashamed of this life ain't so pretty
Takes up some space in my heart
Playing the game when we know we're not winning
Fill in the blanks from the start

Stuck in your ways while my mind is still spinning
That's not the way to my heart
Choosing the road to a place that's beginning
To feel like we've made a new start

But you know I'm no good at some things
That you don't want to face
When you start looking in from the outside
You won't leave any trace

Try something new from a side that is sinking
That's just no good to our hearts
Chipping away over miles of misgivings
And looking for cracks in the pot

But you know I'm no good at some things
That you don't want to face
When you start looking in from the outside
You won't leave any trace
