When you're all alone lost and scared you wish you could scream but you know ain't nobody there
In the wilderness of your worried mind you feel the darkness deepen til you're damn near blind call on me

chorus
I'll be on your side

When you're carrying such a heavy load and you feel like you can't take another step down that lonely road and you're wondering have i gone insane the weight of the world drags you down like a ball and chain call my name

chorus
I'll be on your side

bridge
There ain't no place you can hide from my love naw naw naw No valley too low or river too wide
So just take a moment and reach deep inside your heart Cuz that's where I live and don't you know I..

chorus
I'll be on your side

solo, chorus to end
Track Name: Piece of an Angel
She walks on water and streets of gold And she talks to Jesus about my soul
Sometimes I wonder how can she be real? I got a piece of an angel
here with me
When I'm angry she don't care she just whispers something in my ear
and all of a sudden my mind is clear
I gotta piece of an angel standing here

She comes down and walks with me
She give me love love love love unconditionally
You know I'm a believer 'cause she believes in me I got a piece of an angel
here with me.

and when I need her I feel her there in my darkest hour overcome by fear
she says it's gonna be all right until the morning light
I gotta piece of an angel here with me

She comes down and walks with me
She give me love love love love unconditionally
You know I'm a believer 'cause she believes in me
I gotta piece of an angel you know I'm a believer 'cause she believes in me
I gotta piece of an angel
Track Name: No Way Home
Been thinkin' about the weather I think it's time for a change. Been down so long this time and i dont see a way I can stay
(chorus)
No way I'm ever coming back form this one, baby
No way ever digging out of this hole
No way that I can stay here, baby But I can't find the doorway home

Back when I was young and crazy Thought the world was mine but I was lazy
One thing to lie to evverybody else But only the Devil lies to himself

and there's no way...(chorus)

(bridge)

Trapped in vicious cycle infinity to end
Father send down your fire and take me up to heaven

Been thinking about the weather I know it's time for a change Fell down so far so hard That I don't see a way I can stay

(chorus)
No way I'm ever coming back form this one, baby
No way ever digging out of this hole
No way that I can stay here, baby But I can't find the doorway home

Track Name: My Girlfriend Tried to Kill Me
My girlfriend tried to kill me came at me with a knife
she thought that I was sleeping Lucky I’m alive
My girlfriend tried to kill me late last night
She told me that the next time she’s gonna do it right

Chorus
I don’t know what i did so wrong I sent her flowers and I wrote her this song She’s stone cold crazy but I love her so
now I don't have any place to go
tried to kill me My girlfriend tried to kill me
la la la la la la la la la

My girlfriend tried to kill me it’s really quite a shock!
I leave the toilet seat up and don't pick up my socks
I let her leave the house once to buy me cigarettes
she came back home and caught me with another girl in bed

Chorus

Bridge

Relationships are so complicated
Life was simpler when i just masturbated
People say I have no sense of right and wrong
they use words like “boundaries” that I don’t understand
I never grew up, I’m a child and not a man
Well, I’m trying to change but I’m not sure I can
La la la la la la la la la

My girlfriend tried to kill me and I can’t figure out why she’d want to do that can you help me out? Because I need a new girlfriend that has a nice car and doesn't mind a boyfriend that goes to tittie bars.
Track Name: End of the Road
It's been a long lonely road I travel I got holes in my worn-out shoes
the days drag on the nights so long they chill me to the bone
and I just can't shake these blues
don't know where I'm going can't remember where I've been
still I keep on going until I reach the end end of the road


Old Joe shot his woman down because she done him wrong
Joe gonna live forever cause Jimi played that song
ain't that a shame nobody knows that woman's name
ain't that a shame you better win or don't play the game
Back when I had money I had so many friends
the I.R.S. and the banker man put that to an end
then my baby left me and friends all turned their backs
I set off on down the road, and never took one look back
ain't that a shame nobody knows my name
ain't that a shame you better win or don't play the game

It's been a long lonely road I travel I got holes in my worn-out shoes
the days drag on the nights so long they chill me to the bone
and I just can't shake these blues
But I know a better day is coming and I’ll never give up hope
I just gotta keep on going Til I reach the end of the road
end of the road yeah end of the road
Track Name: Us
we had dreams to change the world peace and love
was all we'd need fight the power loose the chains
a new religion for a brand new day
what happened before the dawn of that new day we were bringing on? What went so wrong?
Cause I don't like the world we live in
I wish I could go back in time
and I don't like the hand we've been given
And I wonder where we'll draw the line?

We had dreams but now we gotta wake up
'cause while we were sleeping the world just got
more fucked up
my generation every nation stop the hatin' and let's get back to love
fight for freedom for all mankind let's come together and keep this in mind the bigger they are the harder they fall
and there's less of them and more of us
it's all about us still about us not too late for us it's all about us.
Track Name: End of the Road (Live Version)
t's been a long lonely road I travel I got holes in my worn-out shoes
the days drag on the nights so long they chill me to the bone
and I just can't shake these blues
don't know where I'm going can't remember where I've been
still I keep on going until I reach the end end of the road


Old Joe shot his woman down because she done him wrong
Joe gonna live forever cause Jimi played that song
ain't that a shame nobody knows that woman's name
ain't that a shame you better win or don't play the game
Back when I had money I had so many friends
the I.R.S. and the banker man put that to an end
then my baby left me and friends all turned their backs
I set off on down the road, and never took one look back
ain't that a shame nobody knows my name
ain't that a shame you better win or don't play the game

It's been a long lonely road I travel I got holes in my worn-out shoes
the days drag on the nights so long they chill me to the bone
and I just can't shake these blues
But I know a better day is coming and I’ll never give up hope
I just gotta keep on going Til I reach the end of the road
end of the road yeah end of the road
Track Name: Us (unplugged version)
we had dreams to change the world peace and love
was all we'd need fight the power loose the chains
a new religion for a brand new day
what happened before the dawn of that new day we were bringing on? What went
so wrong?
Cause I don't like the world we live in
I wish I could go back in time
and I don't like the hand we've been given
And I wonder where we'll draw the line?
