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

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

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

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

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

Shadows 04:42
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

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

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
