SETBACK - LYRICS:

Dancing is Honest.
Dreaming Deceives.
Preaching is Vain.
Laughter Relieves.

Just because the cookie crumbles, it don't change the way the cookie tastes.
Sometimes squeaky wheels get greasy, sometimes Squeaky get replaced.

just a little setback, make a new plan of attack
head em' off at the pass and put my train on track
sharpening up my knife and layin' down my gun
every day another notch and sleeping well when I'm done

Comedy is Truth
Magic is Lies
Love is Pain
Music Revives

just another setback, never gonna fade to black
draw the Ace, Queen, King, 10, 2 and a Jack
gonna move ahead by stepping back
addition by subtraction is the new kind of math

Science is Solid
Visionaries are Vague
Art is Amazing
Histories Change

just a minor setback, but I ain't sweatin' the smack
finding ways of making up for everything I lack
like my Forman, George; we're knockin' out the fat
and when you smack me down, I get up off the mat.

THE RAVEN & THE IVY - LYRICS:

Big Black Bird
Perched atop a glass house
Full of childlike fears
Flying Now
Towards the horizon
The sky begins to clear

The Grass doesn't grow
When the Sun doesn't shine
Tears don't flow
When there's none left to cry
The Raven & The Ivy fly so far away from home
They just wanna be someplace
Where they don't feel alone (2x)

Big Black Bird
Croaking now, choking out
The Voice of the unheard
Spread your wings
Climb like the Ivy
Let them hear you sing

The Grass doesn't grow
When the Sun doesn't shine
Tears don't flow
When there's none left to cry
The Raven & The Ivy fly so far away from home
They just wanna be someplace
Where they don't feel alone (2x)

I got a little box, it's full of little notes
And I keep saying to myself I gotta let that sh*t go
I got a little box, it's full of little notes
And I keep asking myself

Am I waiting?
Am I wasting away?
Am I fading?
I'm thinking it's too late...

Flying High towards the Unknown
I just wanna be someplace where I don't feel alone
Flying High towards the Unknown
I just wanna be someplace where I don't feel alone (3x)

ARCHER - LYRICS: 


My friend, my friend, will you be my partner?
My friend, my friend, will you be my Archer?
Will you take out all my enemies that through the fog I can not see?
Will you watch the treeline till daylight?
Protect me while I sleep tonight?

My friend, my friend, will you carry this load for me?
Just a few more days and then I'll take it back with ease.
I'm building up my strength again.
I'm counting who I count as Friends.
Can I count you out or count you in?
Without You I fall, but together We win.

After all the merriment and revelry,
Can I count on your Love? Can I count on your Loyalty?
When the laughter ends will you still be there?
When the tangles mount will you brush my hair?
When I fall down weak will you Give me care?
When I cease to breathe will you Give me air?

My friend, my friend, I'll do all these things for You.
I defend my Family, now you're part of my Family too.
But I can't do all this by myself.
I need your Love, I need your Help.
Through all the sickness and through Health,
we can share the Joy, we can share the Wellth.

WILDEST DREAM - LYRICS:

I had the wildest dream last night
I dreamed you were by my side
The world was at our fingertips,

So you spun the globe and kissed my lips goodnight...

Take my hand, I want to understand
As we float through space and time
How something as beautiful as this,
Could possibly be mine

(Chorus)

I dreamed I saw a thousand stars Fall from the night sky
And I wished on every one of them that you'd stay by my side
Even when I hoped and dreamed of loving somebody new
Never in my wildest dreams could I have dreamed of you.

Run beside me towards the unknown
We can keep pace, we can call it home
Sing with me through every season,
Sing with me until the sun grows cold

Take my heart, hold it next to yours
As we float through space and time
I want to hear and feel your soul
I want to know your mind

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

Wildest dream come true,

Wild, wildest dreams came true.

Oh yes my wild, wild, wildest dream, came true.

My wildest dream was you.

(Chorus)

FOXHOLE - LYRICS:  

Even cannon balls can't wake me up when I'm sleeping in my hole.

It took a lot of bombs to break me up, but now I'm shaken to my soul.

So all the world can War around me while I take my rest.

This Foxhole is my only home.

This Foxhole is my nest.

In a word, I'd like to make you Smile. In a word I'd like to Love.

But the warriors and Hawks have won. They just killed the final Dove.

If we could learn we'd herd that herd and turn this bird around.

But till that day we'll send our Boys to dig holes in the ground.

Out in Flander's Field where poppies blow, do they still relive those lines

of the men who moved upon the maps digging holes in older times?

So all the birds can soar around awaiting my sweet death.

This Foxhole is my only home.

This Foxhole is my nest.

GREASY WHEELS - LYRICS: 

I've been rollin' down this road, for so long.

I've been rollin' down this road, for a long time.
I'm gonna get where I'm goin',

Tomorrow or today.

I'm gonna make them Greasy Wheels roll my way.

(Chorus)

You got to roll, roll, roll,

You gotta roll your own way.

It don't matter when you get there,

It matters that you stay,

Rollin', Rollin', Rollin',

By that Silver Bay,

You gotta keep them Greasy Wheels rollin' your way.

Now I don't know where I am, so I'm goin'.

And I don't know if I'll make it, but I'll try.

Mama don't tell me lies, I'll be damned if I don't try.

I gotta take them Greasy Wheels and make em' fly.

(Chorus)

Now I don't know where I am, so I'm goin'.

And I don't know if I'll make it, but I'll try.

I'm gonna sing it to a crowd, I'm gonna make my momma proud.

I gotta take them Greasy Wheels and make em' fly.

(Chorus 4x)

THIS, THAT & THE OTHER THING - LYRICS:

Too many people got too little patience,

And too much time to kill.

They stay the same, say they'll change,

But you know they never will.

You'd be so beautiful if you learned a smile,

Instead of always asking for more.

You'd be so worthwhile if you took the time, to

knock knock knock--on closed doors!

(Chorus)

This, that & the other thing,

You got a cell phone, but you let it ring.

Nobody can reach you, and they never will.
I say this, that & the other thing,

Are the reasons you don't learn anything.

Nobody can teach you, ain't got time to kill.

Nobody can reach you, and they never will.

For once in your life--make a change!

Give it a try, why don't you change? Why don't you change.

You got judgement written all over your face,

Step back, take a look, it's not your place

To criticize someone else's life--when you can't even handle your own.

Don't you get it? Don't you get it? Don't you get it? 

Does the light stay on in your mind when you shut--everyone out!

(Chorus)

(Bridge) 

Oh I'm not trying to be mean,

But I'm not tryin' to keep it clean.

You took the best years of my life away from me.

Oh and even though it hurts,
I know that it could've been worse.

But one more wrong, still wouldn't make it right... right?

(Chorus)

(Outro)

Why don't you change, why don't you change,

Why don't you even try?

Why don't you change, why don't you change,

Oh why? (4x)
