Track Name: I'm glad you called
1st Verse:
When you're coasting down the hill it feels so great
but when your struggling, then you're growing, taking shape
I know you're down tonight and it's getting late
I'm glad you called

2nd Verse:
Somebody told you once that you could never win
But when life knocks you down, you get back up again
You've got good reason, You want to paint and write the wind
Prechorus:
But when the art you idolized
Has become homogenized

Chorus:
What's the point in trying to be someone you're not
just to fit in, when you're in a desperate spot
If it doesn't ring true, it ain't worth a lot
I'm glad you called

3rd Verse:
These are things I had to say to you so long
Somebody told me once to keep me keeping on
The truth it hurts I know, correct me if I'm wrong

Prechorus:
I'm glad you called
To get your problem solved
(chorus) ( repeat 1st v)
Track Name: That's the truth (Can you handle it?)
1stv:
I want to be nice, not be a tool
But I knew when I met you, you thought like a fool
Broke all your strings, trying to be cool
That's the truth can you handle it?

2nd
You were into drinking, 'till much too late
Not heavy thinking though that would have been great
Should have had a spanking at 7 or 8
That's the truth can you handle it?

Chorus:
It's hard to handle a lot of truth
Hits too close to the root
Since you asked me I'll show you the proof
That's the truth can you handle it?

3rdv:
You were a married to a Saint with a bundle of joy
Took a job out of state, to try and avoid
All the while raising Cain like a midnight cowboy
That's the truth can you handle it?

Chorus:
It's hard to handle a lot of truth
Hits too close to the root
Since you asked me I'll show you the proof
That's the truth can you handle it?

4th:
Of all of the things I remember the most
You were a braggart, with stories you'd toast
20 beers later, scary as a ghost
That's the truth can you handle it?

(chorus) (chorus) (Tag)
Track Name: The Comeback Kid
Every time I fall into despair
worrying about the things I lack
I look to find the brighter side
I'm not an egomaniac
Still I want to have success
A million dollar track
Time to make a come back

You and I we gave it all we had
Our band it went from good to bad
Now you're touring the midwest
An Eddie Money tribute act
But I'm taking promo shots
Doing crunches, What's wrong with that?
Time to make a come back

I could sit and wish for life to change
Another walking pale cliche
Some would pay to watch me take a fall
Hey that ain't no way to play
I'm a triumph of the will
I'll take a different tack
Time to make a come back
Track Name: Broseph
1stv
Gather strength and inspiration
Focus on an affirmation
I won't tell you what to do
I'll only share my point of view

2nd v
The light illuminates the past
It's clear your marriage could not last
It's good that we can talk like this
Without the other getting pissed

Chorus:
I know you're gonna be alright
You and I we're just alike
You'll be better before you know
Get away go to Mexico
You can reinvent yourself
This could be good for your health
Head out to the sidewalk end
Your destiny in the wind

3rdv
It's funny how the time goes by
We used to sit and just get high
We're better than we used to be
I'm sure your parents would agree

(Chorus)
Repeat 1st verse
Track Name: There's a time to make amends
1st V:
There's a time to make amends with the past
Let it go, Lay it down in the ash
There's just one question I have to ask
Who are you behind the mask

2ndv:
There's a time getty up, move along
Funny, I usually think that I'm wrong
But I new the truth all along
It's good to get it out in a song

Chorus:
Your performance was beyond compare
I don't even know why I care
I guess, I've never seen such a con
My faith in humanity's gone

3rd Verse:
I've heard everything run it's course
and I believe we all reap just rewards
For me that's a thought that endures
"Vengeance is mine," said The Lord

(Chorus)

Repeat 1st V:
1st V:
There's a time to make amends with the past
Let it go, Lay it down in the ash
There's just one question I have to ask
Who are you behind the mask
Track Name: Random acts of kindness
Trying to be so tall
doesn't count for much at all
It's those who make a difference
Not the pompous and the cocky
rather random acts of kindness
friends who catch you when you fall

Chorus:
Are we blinded to a truth we won't receive?
Is there still hope with all this bitterness and greed?

2nd:
Some people make you feel so small
A monologue if they call
Always social climbing
Burning bridges, crave the spotlight
It's a contest, take the credit
But the writings on the wall

Chorus:
Are we blinded to a truth we won't receive?
Is there still hope, with all this bitterness and greed? Do you believe?
(solo)

Trying to be so tall
doesn't count for much at all
It's those who make a difference
Not the pompous and the cocky
Rather random acts of kindness
friends who catch you when you fall
Track Name: It's the Holiday
1st V:
It's the holiday, I'm driving through our town
It's the holiday, wish you were still around
It's the holiday, makes me think of you
It's the holiday, what's a guy to do

Chorus:
It's the holiday
another year flew by like a car
isn't life a winding road
hope you're doing alright
where ever you are

2nd V:
It's the holiday, yeah it's closing in
It's the holiday, I'm thankful for my friends
It's the holiday, of the virgin birth
It's the holiday, want my holiday's worth

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Somewhere I have that old photo of you
in that black dress, I must confess
it's in my top 5
of the best nights of my life

3rd V:
It's the holiday, what else can be said
It's the holiday, wrapped in holiday red
It's the holiday, yeah the lights shine bright
It's the holiday, it's 50 farenheit tonight

(Repeat Chorus)
