Apple of My Eye Could it be there’s a girl who knows what’s wrong and right? I can’t believe the heart that’s in her Cause if I’m wrong this time I don’t think I ever wanna know In the meantime I sit and wonder CHORUS The feelings getting stronger My heart’s growing fonder She’s still the apple of my eye (background) Apple of my eye Hell bent on innocence Never any discontent That’s why she’s the apple of my eye Am I asking for too much I really don’t think so The only space in heart is hers She’s a girl not a dream anything but low So in the meantime I sit and wonder CHORUS Cause if I’m wrong this time I don’t think I ever wanna know I need to know the truth cause I want her

on’t Turn Away The pierce of a cold cool breeze That shivers through your soul As we stand on the edge without looking down below Don’t turn away from facing what is true The bottom is the only thing that keeps from finding you… Finding you… Finding you… CHORUS: Run to chase the fears standing in your way Take the time to use your mind Take care of them today It’s up to us we can make the change Watch the road don’t look back Don’t turn away, don’t turn away When you look up high and you wonder You wonder wonder why It’s not at all like it seems It’s like the visions in your dreams Confusing truth with a sleepless night Sleepless night that you’ve fought You wake up falling… falling down Pick yourself up off the ground CHORUS The pierce of a cold cold breeze That shivers through your soul As you stood on the edge Without looking down below You turned away from facing What was true The bottom was the one thing That kept from finding you Finding you… finding you

Be Your Fix 03:43
Be Your Fix There’s a red candle, that’s a burnin in my heart I tried to put it out, but I don’t know where to start To help me forget, I tried someone new But when I close my eyes I just see myself being shot into you CHORUS: Be your fix I wanna be the one that you crave Be your fix The one that you can’t do without Be your fix Keeping you from falling apart It lets me flow, straight to your heart There’s a crystal fire, that’s gleaming in your soul Yes I am dangerous Like a black cat crossing in your way CHORUS You can’t push me away even if you try I pump through your veins, driving you insane I know that look I’ve seen it in your eyes That promise to yourself You won’t keep it if you try CHORUS Be your fix
4.
Look Hard Enough In your head you can only see red cause It won’t let you go.. It won’t let you go Your future find can not be the kind To make you mad To make you sad Cause this time she has to care CHORUS: Look hard enough, look hard enough this time Look hard enough, look hard enough this time Go bed jumping pillow thumping She’ll be waiting there, she’ll be waiting there And all you may find is a waste of time No peace of mind None of any kind Cause this time she has to care CHORUS: If you go window shopping Please don’t lose your way Don’t be afraid to love… today Please don’t lose your way Please don’t be afraid… afraid… afraid CHORUS: Backing vocals: Look hard enough
5.
The Battle 03:57
The Battle This is the line, that no one crosses over The future will claim, our one and only strength Everyone will hide, until the day there’s no hope Open your eyes, there’s still our faith between us This is the time, the challenging of heavens Power of minds, the day that’s unforgiven CHORUS: I don’t believe the battle will ever be Days that precede new life, is breaking down CHORUS 2X We walk away not looking past the street signs No one conceding forming the new mind We you can see the blackness dominating Weakened illusions and the fire in his eyes CHORUS 3X

Wicked Bind 06:06
Wicked Bind In the fields of the fire she walks to me so slowly She tells lme tales of hope from the land of glory Take me there I know it’s right for me Oh it’s plain to see Trouble meets all who belong there She knows where to find the key… finds the key All of those who tried You give up the will to go on The future holds the promise of those who belong We all all must try to break the spell Keeping us in this world of hell Colder now our eyes too blind to see She knows where to find the key… finds the key The innocence of her smile deceives all the ones who fuel her fire She’s the one who speaks high hopes and cuts me down and wraps me in ropes I need the sword of justice I know just what I need to find Powers of conscious mind will rid us of her Wicked… Wicked bind Mesmerized by her freedom, you choose not to follow your true leader Take me now I see the light I know it’s there it’s always in sight I need the sword of justice I know just what I need to find Powers of conscious mind will rid us of her Wicked… Wicked Bind She’s the one who speaks high hopes and cuts me down and wraps me in ropes Take me there to the top of the hill Go in for the fight Go in for the kill I need the sword of justice I know just what I need to find Powers of the conscious mind will rid us of her Wicked… Wicked Bind Wicked Bind… powers of the conscious mind will rid us of … Wicked Bind You know it’s your time Powers of the conscious mind will rid us of her Wicked… Bind

Down in the Dark Revenge is sweet, oh you liar beware What’s done is done and she doesn’t care Too many nights I can’t sleep A man cannot weep The last thing I wanna know Is we’re even and I’m gonna go That’s why I’ll be waiting You know I’m waiting Yes I’m waiting Down in the Dark Down in the Dark You know I’m waiting Yes I’m waiting Down in the Dark Revenge is sweet and you know I will be there The balance will rock you and all will be fair You cannot understand all the pain you put me through I think it’s high time, that you paid your dues That why I’ll be waiting Oh you know I’m waiting Yes I’m waiting Down in the Dark Down in the Dark You know I’m waiting Down in the Dark Oh you liar beware Too many wrongs don’t make a right Hey tell me about it What she does best she does at night Don’t you know that I’ll be waiting You know I’m waiting Yes I’m waiting Down in the Dark Down in the Dark You know I’m waiting Down in the Dark Oh you liar beware Down in the Dark Oh you know I’m waiting Down in the Dark Oh you liar beware… Beware

Midnight’s Gone Midnight’s gone and I’m at your door Your piercing eyes light me up like dawn You don’t want me there on your doorstep Remember when you greeted with open arms How can I give you all of my all When all you want is for me to walk away CHORUS: You told me to walk away And I pretended not to hear you speak You told me to walk away Now you want me to stay You told me to walk away Do you still love me or you just pleasin Your ego just to see me cry again Now I’ve taken the walk it’s been a long stay (You Say) “Give me your love” I don’t think I can pay again CHORUS Second line: And I pretend not to hesitate I see your face in my dreams The day and night memories Now I know what I need Walk away… walk away… walk away Walk away… I saw you stray Midnight’s gone and I’m at your door Piercing eyes they want me to be gone

Am I Free 02:55
Am I Free So little left in me I have strength to make a try Only walls surrounding me No nation hears me cry Am I a witness to this sin That builds the mighty wall No dream can lift me now We are far beyond the fall Silent dreamers carry on A world that’s not their way Terrified to lose their lives They lose their final say… final say Somewhere balance weighs the truth Of a past that rules the times Will the nations lasting power Survive through their fatal crimes We are somewhere in the distance Decisions that are made Do I belong to this world any longer Am I free or just afraid Am I me or am I made Am I free or just afraid Am I witness to the sin That builds the mighty wall No dream can lift me now We are far beyond the fall Silent dreamers carry on A world that’s not their way Terrified to lose their lives They lose their final say… final say Am I free or just afraid

Back It Up 04:06
Back It Up I’m running fast I’m running scared Life passing me by on dares Peer pressure is pushing me It’s telling me to run fancy free BRIDGE: Frustration, aggravation, of what I really want to do Separation, is what I need If only that’s now what I can see CHORUS: Back it up and slow it down I wanna catch my life on rebound Back it up and slow it down Back it up I’ve missed out a lot of time Important things are passing me by Take a look at what is gone I’ll start over at the break of dawn BRIDGE CHORUS I’ve missed out on a lot of time I’ve missed out on a lot of time I’m cutting loose I’m breaking free All my friends are really helping me Give me the chance to show it’s right Keep my friendships still in sight CHORUS

about

The white-hot Pittsburgh band began blazing their trail on the Pittsburgh club circuit on Halloween night of 1990. The chemistry between members Dean Mikulla on guitar, vocalist DC Cooper, bassist Jimmy Wilson and drummer Carmen Capozzi was a cataclysmic event that would rival even the bigger bands of the time. The chemical reaction was already in effect within the first 24 hours of a meeting between Mikulla and Cooper one night at an open jam session at a local rock club. The magnetic combination of the two would attract the rhythmic vibrations of Wilson. The powerful energetic rumblings of skin basher Capozzi would complete the quartet. Immediately sparks would begin to fly as the band began to compose original material and peel out onto the scene burning it up as they went.

TUNG BANDITS would self-release one solid 10-song full-length within the band's short existence. The release would garner attention quickly but would soon after be obscured as the members would begin to go on to other projects following the departure of singer DC Cooper to join Danish progressive-metal band, Royal Hunt. Ever since THE TUNG BANDITS self-titled album would become a hidden gem of the melodic hard rock sub-genre and Pennsylvania heavy metal.
