The Barron’s Here to Rock

We’re diving from the open skies
You’ve got no chance to get away
Our fire-power is no match for anyone
You must join our ranks or be our prey

We take no prisoners
So you best beware
You’ll feel the power fill the air
We’ve set our sights
We’re honing in on you
We’ve got your number
And we know just what to do
The Barron’s here to rock

Track Name: Too Good to be Forgotten
Too Good To Be Forgotten

Remember when you said
We’d last until the end of time
But now you’re gone, oh can’t you see
Just what you’ve left behind
The days go by
And in my mind you’re all I see
There must be some way
Some way to get you back to me
(Chorus)
Too good to be forgotten
Oh baby can’t you see
Too good to be forgotten

I close my eyes and reminisce
About the times we shared
But as they open
I realize you’re still not there
Always tomorrow
I say this just to soothe my mind
But when tomorrow never comes
Today’s excuse I cannot find

(Chorus)
Too good to be forgotten
Oh baby can’t you see
Too good to be forgotten
You must come back to me

You’re all alone
it wasn’t what you’d thought it’s be
You pray I’d call
but now your eyes can truly see
So now you know
Our love’s too good to throw away
Let’s try again
I know you still need me
Like I need you

(Repeat Chorus)
Too good to be forgotten
Oh baby can’t you see
Too good to be forgotten
You must come back to me
Track Name: Living Our Life for Rock
Living Our Lives For Rock

9 to 5’s not the life for me
There’s somewhere that I’d rather be
Suit and Ties screaming in my face
My life feels like a total waste

But there’s a feeling
That gets me through the day
A real life fantasy
A chance to get away
Living our lives for rock
Living our lives for rock

Days go by counting one by one
I start to change when Friday comes
Two days away from the 9 to 5
It’s just enough to keep me alive

But there’s a feeling
That gets me through the day
A real life fantasy
A chance to get away
Living our lives for rock
Living our lives for rock

9 to 5’s not the life for me
There’s somewhere that I’d rather be
Suit and Ties screaming in my face
My life feels like a total waste

But there’s a feeling
That gets me through the day
A real life fantasy
A chance to get away
Living our lives for rock
Living our lives for rock
Track Name: Truth_Us_Justice
Truth vs. Justice

These days are so insane
I’m losing my mind
Every day’s a struggle
just to survive
The sun sets once again
another day gone by
Someone please tell them
I’ve committed no crime
How long must I fight
‘Til they realize they’re wrong

Truth vs. Justice
It’s the only plea I’ve got
I shout to my lawyer
to get these charges dropped
I’ll go down fighting
oh this I will devout
Like an animal in a cage
scratching to get out

How long must I fight
‘Til they realize they’re wrong
No one knows I’m right
They’ll all see it when I’m gone
You’ve got to find the golden key
‘Cause you know I must be free
You’ve got to find the golden key
We’ve just got to make them see

(Chorus)
My waiting is over
somehow I lost it all
Now I must pay the price
‘cause another man broke the law
The system’s wrong again
my sentence is now cast
One day the truth will come
bite them on the ass

(Repeat Chorus)
How long must I fight
‘Til they realize they’re wrong
No one knows I’m right
They’ll all see it when I’m gone
You’ve got to find the golden key
‘Cause you know I must be free
You’ve got to find the golden key
We’ve just got to make them see
Track Name: Redd Barron - Blind Date
Blind Date

Daylight trickles through my grated screen
It’s blinding me and my mental scream
I count each Sunday as it passes on
The sands drop loudly one by one
Terror charges through my racing mind
My heard is pumping working overtime
The sweat pours freely down my twitching face
The fear overwhelms me as I start to embrace
My nerves wretched tightly like a tightened thread
Pain starts pulsing through my shaven head
My thoughts come flooding all too clear I see,
“Blinding” the limits of my sanity

No more tomorrow
Drowning in sorrow
I need to see the morning
I need to be here tomorrow
I need to see the morning

I think too late about my chosen path
I try to raise my head and choke a laugh
My voice filled with nothing but a little rasp
The fear overwhelms me and my mental grasp
My mistakes in life unleashed from their shroud
They come to haunt me now and taunt me aloud
The lights start dimming from my stricken stare
Today’s my date with the electric chair

No more tomorrow
Drowning in sorrow
I need to see the morning
I need to be here tomorrow
I need to see the morning
Track Name: Burning Cities
Burning Cities

Why do they send them all our children?
We all know that wars can’t be won
How many people solve their problems?
Using a rifle or a gun

The battle overseas
It’s filled with their pain
The children crying out
Nothing to gain
The cities they’re all burning
And we all wonder why
The children they’re all screaming
And we cannot hear your cries
How can the fighting be the answer?
The shooting the killing on your mind
We’ve got to learn to live with reason
It’s really just a race against the time

The battle overseas
It’s filled with their pain
The children crying out
Nothing to gain
The cities they’re all burning
And we all wonder why

The children they’re all screaming
And we did not hear your cries
The cities they’re all burning
And we all wonder why
The children they’re all screaming
And we cannot hear your cries
The cities they’re all burning
And we all wonder why

The children they’re all screaming
And we cannot hear your cries
The cities they’re all burning
And we all wonder why

The children they’re all screaming
And we cannot hear your cries
Track Name: Shadows
Shadows

When you think of blood
Do you lose control?
If your body quivers
Don’t look in the shadows
They’re all out to get you
You’re mind and soul
You can turn the other way
Run away from the shadows

No more shadows
They’re coming
To take you away
No more shadows

If you start to find
You’re losing ground
You can turn the other way
Shadows all around
But don’t you let them
Come and steal your soul
You can run the other way
Turn around its rock and roll
Money’s all they need
They’re blinded by their greed

No more shadows
They’re coming
To take you away
No more shadows

When you think of blood
Do you lose control
If your body quivers
Don’t look in the shadows
They’re all out to get you
You’re mind and soul
You can turn the other way
Run away let’s rock and roll

No more shadows
They’re coming
To take you away
No more shadows
No more shadows
Track Name: Search for Love
Search For Love

Lights are fading everywhere
And it makes me feel despair
yeah despair
People walking hand in hand
I’d be insane without the band
understand
Babe I’m leaving you today
I just don’t know what to say
Search for love
A love that will not leave me
It’s just an endless search
It’s time to draw the line
The times are changing
can’t you see
And all that’s left is you and me
you and me
I can see deception in your eyes
All you’re giving me is lies
all your lies
Babe I’m leaving you today
I just don’t know what to say
Search for love
A love that will not leave me
It’s just an endless search
It’s time to draw the line
Track Name: Kill or Be Killed
Kill Or Be Killed

Sitting in a bar and not knowing where you are
You try to leave this place but can’t find your car
Then a man comes up to you and starts to give you threats
You know this fight could be a fight till the death
But you’re not sure if you should fight the way you feel
You’re not sure if this man won’t make a deal
‘Cause in your life you know the fights have been too few
There’s only one thing left to do

Kill or be killed
It’s you and I
And one of us will die
Kill or be killed
And I will survive

The day in court I stand alone
I’m being tried
The judge just asks me once
did that man have to die
I said he drew his gun
intent was being made
So I took out my knife
and cut him with my blade
I never thought that I could take his life
No I just tried to save my own
I did no evil the struggle I’m in
I’d do it all again

Kill or be killed
It’s you and I
And one of us will die
Kill or be killed
And I will survive
Kill or be killed
It’s you and I
And one of us will die
Kill or be killed
And I will survive
Kill or be killed
It’s you and I
And one of us will die
Kill or be killed
And I will survive
