Track Name: Life on the Farm
Life on the Farm
Every life has its charm
Needles and arms
It’ll do you no harm

Coffee in a cup looks like old black grit
Food on a platter but it tastes like shit
Climbin’ the walls as you’re countin’ the days
Shiver and shakin’ just to change your ways

Life on the Farm
Every life has its charm
Needles and arms
It’ll do you no harm

Go for a swim the pool’s filled with piss
It ain’t how I pictured a night like this
Locked in a world with shame and sin
They come a callin’ when you crawl back in

Life on the Farm
Every life has its charm
Needles and arms
It’ll do you no harm

Fightin’ cold sweats night and day never turn the other way it’s a bitch
Climin’ walls and countin’ days seeing life through a whisky haze scratch that itch
Get me high to bring me round chasin’ dragons comin’ down it’s a crime
Count the chalk marks on the wall remember when I had it all, mark my time

It don’t look so good on the other side
When you should be doin’ twenty five to life
It may be a sickness but there ain’t no cure
I’ll see you in hell honey that’s for sure

Life on the Farm
Every life has its charm
Needles and arms
It’ll do you no harm
Track Name: The Magic Never Fades
I sail away sometimes on borrowed time
Pen to paper write another line to the story
Moving pictures circle in my mind
But you are more than just another line in my story

Might be my hand that writes the words
Your inspiration makes it worth my time
To write
That line

Sleepless nights
Silver lights
When I am blind you are the torch that lights my way
When it aint right
Every time
You take my words and you help them to rhyme
And when I play
There is no pain
Each page is just a chance to start again
The melodies
Just come to me
The magic’s stronger than I thought it ever could be


Situations
Conversations
I listen to every word that is said
Love relations
Love complications
But it’s the music that makes it alright in the end
Celebrations
Consolations
The magic it will always light my way
Condemnations
Heartbreak stations
I will play my six string till my dying day

Every one of you has a place in my heart
Until the day I write the very last line in my story
But I pray that is a while away
Until then I hope you’ll ride this journey with me

Through the laughter through the cryin’
Rock n Roll until we die one night
There will be
One more line
Track Name: Flight of the Dragon
Time stands still
The wizard’s will
Is written in the stars
Setting sun
His will be done
Have you traveled far
Wishing well
The gates of hell
Path to your final day
Before you leave
Have these wishes three
Let conscience light the way

And when the final curtain’s coming down
Will you swim or will you sink and drown
Will the feather weighed against your heart
Or will you need the flight of the dragon

The cavern hides
In the mountain’s lies
Is the wisdom that you seek
The wizard takes your power
By the ticking hours
Your magic sword is weak
A misty haze
Of his wicked gaze
He takes you by surprise
Can’t see at all
Still the dragon calls
So use your inner eye

And when the final curtain’s coming down
Will you swim or will you sink and drown
Will the feather weighed against your heart
Or will you need the flight of the dragon

You might be blind
But you will find
The dragon still can see
Use his sight
He takes flight
Says tonight you fly with me
On the wizard’s tower
At the witching hour
The battle cry will sound
The flames fly higher
Wizards funeral pyre
The dragon brings him down

And when the final curtain’s coming down
Will you swim or will you sink and drown
Will the feather weighed against your heart
Or will you need the flight of the dragon
Track Name: Rainbow Maiden
She was a Rainbow Maiden
No Evil flickered in her eyes
It was written she had forsaken
To this I will not testify

When the wind brings the sound, the children gather round
They listen to her stories her tales of old
And I watch her from afar, an angel of my heart
A spirit pure both body and soul
A family wept with joy as she healed their dying boy
With a smile and a magic spell
And when her trial brought the tears, she said don’t cry for me
Know I only wish you well

She was a Rainbow Maiden
But she was tried as a witch of evil
She did not bring the devil’s fornication
She whispered and I believe her

When the wind brings the sound, the children gather round
They listen to her stories her tales of old
And I watch her from afar, an angel of my heart
A spirit pure both body and soul
A family wept with joy as she healed their dying boy
With a smile and a magic spell
And when her trial brought the tears, she said don’t cry for me
Know I only wish you well

She was a Rainbow Maiden
They tortured her she made no prayer or cry
She knew her soul it needed no saving
Her tears fell silently the flames rose high

When the wind brings the sound, the children gather round
They listen to her stories her tales of old
And I watch her from afar, an angel of my heart
A spirit pure both body and soul
A family wept with joy as she healed their dying boy
With a smile and a magic spell
And when her trial brought the tears, she said don’t cry for me
Know I only wish you well
Track Name: A Hundred Times Before
Because I said I’d never do this again
Doesn’t mean that you and me we have to end
Just see the handle with care sign on my head
But now is now and that was then

I said I’d closed the door
Washed the blood stains from the floor
And say what I’ve said a hundred times before

I don’t want you to take a look inside
Because I’m afraid of what you might find
I swear to you I got nothin’ left to hide
I don’t want to be the one to take you for a ride

I said I’d closed the door
Washed the blood stains from the floor
And say what I’ve said a hundred times before

So break a promise, bend the line
Relight my candle in the night
Flickering flames the fire light
Will she make me feel alright tonight

I said I’d closed the door
Washed the blood stains from the floor
And say what I’ve said a hundred times before

My heart says stay my head says run
Just trying to right one wrong turn
Love letters written now they burn
I don’t want to believe you could be the one

I said I’d closed the door
Washed the blood stains from the floor
And say what I’ve said a hundred times before
Track Name: Watchmaker, Wishmaster
Superficial angel
Sitting on your throne
Your poison halo
My flesh and bone
You think that your words
Are magic spells
You think I can just
Shut out this hell

You won’t make more scars
You’re not a switchblade knife
What gives the right to you to call my life
The cogs inside your skull
That turn your hands of time
They’re not a looking glass into my mind

Politician princess
Weaving your web
Your will be done
Leave me for dead
You play your numbers
From one to twelve
But my thirteen’s magic
This eye can tell

Come down from your high horse
Look me in the eye
Come face me one on one fight for your life
You think you snap your fingers
And your will is done
But it’s just you and me and I won’t run

There ain’t no cure, for the heartache and pain that I feel
No magic potion, to help me to heal
Your time piece of evil, ticks my life away
And your words are the razor, let pain light the way

No judge no jury
To hear my plea
Your conscience tells you
You see what I see
Well if you felt my sickness
You wouldn’t last a day
Your everlasting smile
Forever washed away

And if you ever felt it
The pain in my heart
And how I spend each waking moment torn apart
If you’re so quick to condemn me
Have me crucified
I pray one day you’ll see it through my eyes
Track Name: Why Can't You Say Hello
I said I loved you yesterday
It always works out this way
And now I’ve hurt you somehow
Why can’t you look at me now

I can’t apologise if I can’t see how I’m wrong in your eyes
And I can’t make it right if you won’t tell me tonight
I used to make you smile what’s changed this whilie
And now I don’t know why you can’t even say hello

Why can’t you say hello

I just go from day to day
The months the years they slip away
At night sometimes I wonder why
I’m not alright but I get by

I can’t apologise if I can’t see how I’m wrong in your eyes
And I can’t make it right if you won’t tell me tonight
I used to make you smile what’s changed this whilie
And now I don’t know why you can’t even say hello

Why can’t you say hello
Why can’t you say hello
Why can’t you say hello

Oh I used to pray, that you wouldn’t go
And I used to say, that I loved you so
Oh I used to dream, of holding you close
And I thought that was what mattered the most
Track Name: Hayley
Oh sweet silence
Ride the pain to the other side
I can’t deny this
Oh there is pain on the other side

I feel the sting
Of every cut that she’s placing
The hurt that it brings
To think what she’s facing

And I know her tears are falling tonight
Because I can’t listen to my heart
And see the light
In the cold night

I long just to hold her
But we are miles away
I long to console her
And promise her that I will stay

But my own shadow of fear
A fear of a past
The wounds may have healed
But the scars they will last

And I wish I could say I loved her tonight
Maybe that’s what’s in my heart
But the demons
And their reasons

Do you remember the story
I was never the prince
I always favoured the dragon
But this time the thorns come from within
Track Name: Misconceptions of my Heart
I’ve been shot down, kicked to the ground
With fractured wings, playing on broken strings
The days are long, now the dream is gone
Will the magic fade, now I’ve lost my way


I don’t believe you’re lost inside
No false messiah will be your guide
Maybe you’re down but you’re still alive
It may take some time but you’ll survive


Who are the ghosts inside my head, inside my head who want me dead
Where is the fire where is the flame, where is the flame to light my way


I’ll fight the ghosts inside your head, inside your head who want you dead
I’ll be the fire I’ll be the flame, I’ll be the flame to light your way


Now I don’t believe and I can’t see
The words are outta time the chords are outta key
I can’t fight the pain that won’t leave me be
But it’s my own mind that tortures me


I’ll help you face what tortures you
Because you need the songs and they need you
You don’t have to take the hurt alone
Together we are strong search your heart and soul


I’m here to compromise you
My eyes will hypnotise you
Twist the knife inside you
Away my wings will take you
Your pain your love forsake you
Entwine your mind and complicate you


You wound but you can’t kill the love
I’m a six string soldier, flesh and blood
The rainbow rises from above
The line where horizon meets the sky
The witch her scripture tells me why
The rainbow will be your demise

I stand alone the last in line
To change the path and halt the hands of time
Our fates were destined to intertwine

You’re not alone we stand tonight
As one voice to make it right
Give words to those who’ve lost their light


I can’t just turn my back and run
The fire in this heart still burns
And I’ll stand and face the rising sun

Late nights
Stage lights
I play the riff that takes me home
The love
For those words
The lines I wrote so long ago
My mind
Your guide
You were the light I followed home
Through tears
Now I see
That you never let me feel alone
