Track Name: Oh Avalon
My bones are aching with the season’s cold
That old familiar chill is really getting old
I feel a shiver like I’ve walked across my grave
There is nothing left to save
There is nothing left to save

Tune in the station but now there’s nothing there
Soak in confusion from the static in the air
Distant memories calling from another age
There is nothing left to save
There is nothing left to save

There is nothing left to save…

Lie down your head
And succumb to sleep
There are seeds we plant
In the dreams we keep

Oh Avalon…
Oh Avalon…

Where have you gone?
Oh Avalon…
Track Name: Dangerous Woman
She’s a dangerous woman
I could tell when our eyes first met
Didn’t take but a moment
And I was captured in her net

She’s a dangerous woman
I was a stallion running free
Now I’m fat and happy in my pasture
And she brings the whip on me

She’s a dangerous woman
When she’s around I’m short of breath
I’m long on expectations
I’ll have her or I’ll catch my death

She’s a dangerous woman
Sword of lust and a shield of love
She’s damn near supernatural
Fits my mojo just like a glove

She’s a dangerous woman
She’s got her hooks in me
She’s a dangerous woman
Never again going to be free

She’s a dangerous woman
Black widow and angel of grace
There’s magic on her lips
And salvation in her face

She’s a dangerous woman
She’s a shelter in the storm
Tall cool glass in the summer
In the dead of winter she’s so warm

She’s a dangerous woman
She’s got her hooks in me
She’s a dangerous woman
Never again going to be free

BRIDGE (spoken):
She’s a dangerous woman
She’s got her hooks in me
She’s a dangerous woman
Never again going to be free

She’s a dangerous woman
She’s got her hooks in me
She’s a dangerous woman
Never again going to be free

She’s a dangerous woman
She’s got her hooks in me
She’s a dangerous woman
Never again going to be free
Track Name: Countdown To Zero
Shake it like you are the one
Make it like it can't be undone

Stop and smell the roses
Once and awhile
Rub it in their noses
But with a smile

Work it. Come on and make a scene.
Jerk it like it's something obscene

You won't get any, any complaints
From me
You don't have any, any restraints
As far as, as far as I can see

You're running wild
You're a unbridled hero
You're destiny's child
On a countdown to zero
Ready to launch
On the tip of an arrow
Ready or not
You're on a countdown to zero

Rock it. Burn that mother down.
Sock it like bobble headed clown

You're never gonna
Gonna give it away
You're gonna make
All those others pay

You're running wild
You're a unbridled hero
You're destiny's child
On a countdown to zero
Ready to launch
On the tip of an arrow
Ready or not
You're on a countdown to zero

You're running wild
You're a unbridled hero
You're destiny's child
On a countdown to zero
Ready to launch
On the tip of an arrow
Ready or not
You're on a countdown to zero

[solo]

You're running wild
You're a unbridled hero
You're destiny's child
On a countdown to zero
Ready to launch
On the tip of an arrow
Ready or not
You're on a countdown to zero

You're running wild
You're a unbridled hero
You're destiny's child
On a countdown to zero
Ready to launch
On the tip of an arrow
Ready or not
You're on a countdown to zero
Track Name: Damaged Soul
Can’t you read the message written on the wall?
Can’t seem to focus as you stumble down the hall
Memory is mushy just like your brain
Feels like you’ve just been hit by a runaway train

Hope everything will be alright
What the hell happened last night?
You’ve lost control
Ears are starting to ring
Can’t remember a single thing
You’re a damaged soul

Can’t find your wallet or your wedding ring
Keep on wishing that it was all a dream
Can’t stop the pounding inside your skull
There’s nowhere to run to and no one to call

Hope everything will be alright
What the hell happened last night?
You’ve lost control
Ears are starting to ring
Can’t remember a single thing
You’re a damaged soul

Lay it down… You’re a damaged soul…

You gotta stand up when you fall down
So get your ass up off the ground
It’s all yours so own it full
Your battered body and your damaged soul

You gotta stand up when you fall down
So get your ass up off the ground
It’s all yours so own it full
Find a remedy for a damaged soul

Hope everything will be alright
What the hell happened last night?
You’ve lost control
Ears are starting to ring
Can’t remember a single thing
You’re a damaged soul

[repeat]
Track Name: The Devil's Daughter
Deep in the muddy water
Down by the rotting sea
You can find the Devil's daughter
Cooking up some liquid ecstasy

I haven't seen her for some time
But that's because she makes a grown man blind

Everything seems a little foggy
The air is heavy with a spicy stink
Something 'bout her makes a man a little groggy
Makes him kill for another drink

I haven't seen her for some time
But that's because she makes a grown man blind

Something's not right in the water
Something's not right with the air
You've been kissing the Devil's daughter
And now you're slowly sinking without a care

Whoo!
The Devil's Daughter!

I haven't seen her for some time
But that's because she makes a grown man blind

Something's not right in the water
Something's not right with the air
You've been kissing the Devil's daughter
And now you're slowly sinking without a care

[break]

You've been drinking from that bottle
You've been drinking from the Holy Grail
You've been kissing the Devil's daughter
No wonder that you look so pale

You've been drinking from that bottle
You've been drinking from the Holy Grail
You've been kissing the Devil's daughter
You can't win when you're determined to fail

Something's not right in the water
Something's not right with the air
You've been kissing the Devil's daughter
And now you're slowly sinking without a care

Whoo!
The Devil's Daughter!
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
The Devil's Daughter!
Track Name: My Heart Is Blind
So you want to make an impression
You want to steal my breath?
Stop worrying about your mascara selection
You got me bored to death

If you want to get my attention
You’ve gotta have half a brain
Tell me things that build the tension
Words that drive me insane

It’s pretty simple
It all starts with the lips
You want to get things started
Tell me all your secrets

You thought that I was looking you over
That I was fed by my eyes
Well, you can’t judge a book by its cover
Appearances can be lies

It’s pretty simple
It all starts with the lips
You want to get things started
Tell me all your secrets

Sure thing, I want your body
But first give me your mind
Yeah you might be a little hotty
But you should know that my heart is blind

Come over here and sit beside me
Let’s have a little chat
Talk is cheap but not curiosity
What do you think about that?

It’s pretty simple
It all starts with the lips
You want to get things started
Tell me all your secrets

Sure thing, I want your body
But first give me your mind
Yeah you might be a little hotty
But you should know that my heart is blind

You want to make a connection
Well here’s your chance to shine
You want some of my affection
You gotta know that my heart is blind

It’s not that I don’t appreciate your curves
It’s just that stupidity really gets on my nerves

Sure thing, I want your body
But first give me your mind
Yeah you might be a little hotty
But you should know that my heart is blind

You want to make a connection
Well here’s your chance to shine
You want some of my affection
You gotta know that my heart is blind
Track Name: Good Time Blues
Hey baby
I heard you’ve got the blues
The world is bringing you down
With all the bad news

Well not me baby
Crying’s not for me
I’ve had enough pain and suffering
To set me free

I got the good time blues
Good time blues
I got the good time blues
Good time blues

When you’re feeling down and out
When you’re feeling blue
Just loosen up and shake it off
That’s all you have to do

Hang with me baby
Crying’s not for me
I’ve had enough pain and suffering
To set me free

I got the good time blues
Good time blues
I got the good time blues
Good time blues

I got the good time blues
Good time blues
I got the good time blues
Good time blues

Hey baby
I heard you’ve got the blues
The world is bringing you down
With all that bad news

Well not me baby
Crying’s not for me
I’ve had enough pain and suffering
To set me free

I got the good time blues
Good time blues
I got the good time blues
Good time blues

I got the good time blues
Good time blues
I got the good time blues
Good time blues
Track Name: Don't Be A Drag On Me
Momma said don’t be afraid of monsters
Because they don’t exist
Now I won’t say my momma’s a liar
But I’m pretty pissed

Hey momma, just take a look around
We’re so deep in monsters that we might drown

Momma said don’t talk to strangers
Because they might be bad
But when I think of all the people I don’t know
It makes me sad

Hey momma, just take a look around
All that bad in the world just gets me down

Believe what you want
See what you want to see
Say what you want to say
But don’t be a drag on me

Everybody’s got something that gets them
That gets them really hot
Like how the haves have more and more
And the rest of us have not

Hey momma, just take a look around
There’s gotta be some happiness to be found

Believe what you want
See what you want to see
Say what you want to say
But don’t be a drag on me

Keep what you want to keep
Be who you want to be
Feel what you want to feel
But don’t be a drag on me

No, don’t be a drag on me
Don’t be a drag…

I might be a fool
For seeing the glass as half full
But I’d rather have a smile on my face
Than put up with your bull

[solo]

Believe what you want
See what you want to see
Say what you want to say
But don’t be a drag on me

Keep what you want to keep
Be who you want to be
Feel what you want to feel
But don’t be a drag on me

No, no, no…
Track Name: Hitting The Highway
Hey lady, you going my way?
Better get in while you can
‘Cause I’m headed down that highway
I’m a man with a plan

So why don’t you join me
As I travel across this land
And if you want to give us a kiss
I’d be a fortunate man

I wanna see every corner
Of this land of the free
I’m going coast to coast
Nothing’s gonna to stop me

I’m not looking to take advantage
I just wanna hold your hand
But if you want to give us a kiss
I’d be a fortunate man

You can be my traveling companion
As we move from sea to shining sea
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful
As you sitting next to me

Hey lady, you going my way?
I think we make a good team
So turn up that music
Yeah, we’re living the dream

We’ve got some ground to cover
Doing the best that we can
And if you want to give us a kiss
I’d be a fortunate man

You can be my traveling companion
As we move from sea to shining sea
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful
As you sitting next to me

We’re hitting the highway
We’re gonna be set free
We’re hitting the highway
Come sit next to me

Just like those wild mustangs
Like the birds in the sky
We’re hitting the highway
And we’re gonna fly

So why don’t you join me
As I travel across this land
And if you want to give us a kiss
I’d be a fortunate man

We’ve got some ground to cover
Doing the best that we can
And if you want to give us a kiss
I’d be a fortunate man
