Track Name: No Surrender
take my time, I take my time from no one.
Lost until I find, until I find a way to shed my skin
I tell the world a lonely story
Lost inside my ego’s glory

I’ll suffer my fate, suffer my fate for karma
Tomorrow’s a day to late, a day to late for sorrow
I’ll brake the chains that I’ve been in
A new conciseness is awakening

I can see that crazy look in your eyes
It’s a sharp, shiny, shifty dagger stuck in my side
You can steel my tomorrow

You can swallow my pride
Say what you will, go in for the kill

Chorus:
No surrender, No surrender
Right to the death I’ll shall defend
All I believe in

I’ve taken a fall, I’ve taken a fall before
Know the value of my soul, Know my real credit score
I don’t need to be the one in your debt
With compound interest on my regret

I’ve taken hit, taken a hit been bruised and beaten
No mater what you give, you know I will defeat you
Cause every wound turns into a scar
With a lesson learned on who we are

I can see that crazy look in your eyes
It’s a sharp, shiny, shifty dagger stuck in my side
You can steel my tomorrow

Chorus: (No Surrender...)

When the wind blows I won’t bend
No mater how much I shake
Cause tomorrow just might be a day to late
Are the answers meant to fool me
Into a faults sense of calm
Because the truth is no one knows what’s going on.
Track Name: Believe
Track #2: “Believe”
Album: “SNAFU The Album”

Chorus:
Best believe in something
Or you’ll fall for anything
Believe in yourself love

Always trying to find it, really can’t describe it
When I’m feeling more enlightened
The words are on my tongue.
Can’t trust politicians, no answers in religion
And we can’t escape the feeling that there’s more to life then we’re living.

Just look forward and lift up the veil
Open your mind until the truth’s reviled
Our connection to each other is the only thing that’s real
It’s all in how you feel

Chorus: (Best Believe...)

To know which way we should go,
we first must lose the ego
Only then will we know
That we are all just one
No masking our true faces, no wall or hiding places
No religion verses science
No politicians to dived us.

Just look forward and lift up the veil
Open your mind until the truth’s reviled
Our connection to each other is the only thing that’s real
It’s all in how you feel

Chorus: (Best Believe... Believe in yourself Love)

Track Name: Surface
Song: “Surface”
Album: ” SNAFU The Album”

Take a deep breathe
Take a step back
Take another point of view
Don’t let bad times get the best of you
Try and take thing as they come
It’s a mad dash, economic crash
Everybody hoard your stash
Don’t let them trade you souls for cash
There can be no greater sum

All that I can do
Is try and find the words to comfort you
I wish I knew the words to lift you up
Come on take my hand
We’ll find those words as we make our stand
We just need to half fill those half empty cups

Chorus:
Because there’s more to the surface then this life.
There’s more to the surface then this life

It’s not one of us, not a public trust
Not a corporate machine
It’s an organic living being
That’s never to full to feed.
Take what you can
Steel what you can grab
Everybody wants there half
Not concerned with the aftermath
In the wake of all this greed

All that I can do
Is try and find the words to comfort you
I wish I knew the words to lift you up
Come on take my hand
We’ll find those words as we make our stand
We just need to half fill those half empty cups

Chorus:
Because there’s more to the surface then this life.
There’s more to the surface then this life

You can take what you want
But you better consider the outcome
You can take what you want
But that’s no way to be free
there’s more to the surface then this life
Track Name: Cigarette
Song: “Cigarette”
Album: “SNAFU The Album”

You got my head spinning round and round
You got my mind feeling so confound
My eyes are blind to what they see
So unfair, I don’t know what to believe

The truth is here, the truth is real
But you’re not here so I can’t deal
What ever happened to eternity
You took your life and left me in this misery.

And it’s getting the best of me
Yes, it’s getting the best of me

Chorus:
Pass me a god damn cigarette, cigarette, cigarette
Give me a jack and coke right now
I need some painkillers
Novocain to numb this pain
I gotta get away somehow

There’s no way I can except this reality
You not being here is a tragedy
My heart can’t take anymore pain
So unfair – I have you to blame

Always and forever, no regrets never
Tell me how to make my life better
I hope you’re happy because you are free
You took your life and left me in this misery

And It's Getting the best of me
Yes it's getting the best of me.

Chorus:
Pass me a god damn cigarette, cigarette, cigarette
Give me a jack and coke right now
I need some painkillers
Novocain to numb this pain
I gotta get away somehow

As a mater of fact, I thought we had a pact
That we would not go out like that
The everyday brawls, late night phone calls
We comfort each other trough it all
But I understand you did not leave me
But left this life of uncertainty
Leaving me to deal with your tragedy
Track Name: Dust & Sand
Track#5: “Dust & Sand”

I’ll Be one to pick you back up
When you have fallen to pieces
You be the bird and I’ll be the tree trunk
Then you can rest on my branches

Tell me why would you ever feel alone
Dry those tears in your eyes
I’ll be your beacon back home
No mater where you roam

Chorus:
I’ll be here holding out my hand
I’ll be here, I’ll tell you where I stand
Until the day we turn to dust and sand

It’s a harder life when you can’t get up
And you have fallen to pieces
There is no try, there is no give up
Just know this world is a test

Tell me why would you ever feel alone
Dry those tears in your eyes
I’ll be your beacon back home
No mater where you roam

Chorus:
I’ll be here holding out my hand
I’ll be here, I’ll tell you where I stand
Until the day we turn to dust and sand
Track Name: Cycle Of Oblivion
Track#6: “Cycle Of Oblivion”

Nothings permanent
so when the end comes don’t lament
It’s just the consequence
of all this energy spent

When your days are long
And weary and tired eyes get teary
When the night closes in
And light falters, darkening all your alters
When the face of time
Shows lines and it’s true age is defined
Try to be brave and be strong
And fearless as the world around you gets swept away.

Chorus:
And face the dawn
Waves so high they block the sun
Washed away until everything’s gone
And we stand upon the edge of Babylon
Roam, New York City and the cycle of oblivion

When no shelter can save you
And you’ve got no place left you can run
You have to remain true
Stand you ground with outstretched arms.

When your days are long
And weary and tired eyes get teary
When the night closes in
And light falters, darkening all your alters
When the face of time
Shows lines and it’s true age is defined
Try to be brave and be strong
And fearless as the world around you gets swept away.

Chorus:
And face the dawn
Waves so high they block the sun
Washed away until everything’s gone
And we stand upon the edge of Babylon
Roam, New York City and the cycle of oblivion
Track Name: Until It's Found
Track#7: “Until It’s Found”

We never had a chance to control events
We’re all stuck in trance
By circumstance I jumped the fence
In search of another path
By I still believe in life’s romance
Our time is borrowed
Can’t live for tomorrow
Grab today with open hands

As we face the dawn
we stand upon
yesterday’s tomorrow.
Grab it with open hands
Do what you can
Our time is borrowed.

All the consequences that caused my defenses
Are starting to melt away
I get the joke it’s all a hoax
I’m trying to rise above the fray
and I still believe in levity
But I’m starting to think maybe I’ve been tricked
I’m just another casualty

As we face the dawn
we stand upon
yesterday’s tomorrow.
Grab it with open hands
Do what you can
Our time is borrowed

Chorus:
We’re just animals that have gone crazy
Spinning on this sphere
Pacified by our society
And paralyzed by fear
That the ends always near.

When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you until it’s found.
When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you until it’s found.

It’s a crazy affirmation that we’re the ones in control.
It’s a mass masturbation of civilization’s ego.
When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you until it’s found.
When you’ve lost it all I’ll stay with you.
Track Name: Dixie Sound Check
Track#8: “Dixie Sound Check”
Album: “SNAFU The Album”

They say no and I say Yes
A soul that puts me to the test
I live my life there are no regrets.

I live my own life
And I fight for what’s right
I hope to see you on the other side

Can’t live for tomorrow
Waist all the time that’s borrowed
Living your life in sorrow
I don’t think so
My love’s a truth supplier
Don’t need another liar
I live my life and I won’t say I’m sorry

Can you feel it?
I’m not living life just to survive
Track Name: FootPrint
Track#9: “Footprint”
When we’re Gone, gone, gone
When we’re gone-

Mankind’s like a pimp who’s made mother earth his bitch
Whoring her fertility with an opposable thumb and fist
Corporations just as slick as the oil that they spill
Never having to account for all the nature that they kill

It’s so easy to find
It’s so easy to mine
It’s so easy to steal
If we can all just stay blind
mother earth and Mankind
Should be easy to kill

After all our societies fall
Our extinction will reveal

Chorus:
Who we are
While we’re here

The sky is crying, the earth is bleeding,
but no one gives a fuck
Just pass it to the next generation
and wish them all good luck
The destruction of our footprint has yet to be seen
Earth’s more than just a home, it’s a living being

It’s so easy to find
It’s so easy to mine
So drill baby, drill
If we all just stay blind
Mother earth and mankind
Should be easy to kill

After all our societies fall
Our extinction will reveal

Chorus:
Who we are
While we’re here
