Wall Of Justice:

Verse 1:
It’s a hard road,
A constant battle,
Bring them in,
You spit them out,
Got to change the cycle,
Can you feel the sorrow,
The devil’s story,
Belongs behind bars.

Verse 2:
I’m cuffed with no control,
Down this long, long road,
Taking them down,
You let them out,
Wonder why I’m changing,
Anger restraining,
I’m suffocating,
Leasing out charge.

Chorus:
Siren blazing,
Catch the devil,
Risking my life,
Can’t justify,
A seven year sentence,
Mouth is silenced,
My hands are cuffed, tightly to,
Wall of justice.

Verse 3:
Wearing a badge,
Is in my blood,
K9 partner,
Keeping me tough,
Living by monsters,
Sickening feelings,
No deserving,
The freedom keys.

Chorus:
Siren blazing,
Catch the devil,
Risking my life,
Can’t justify,
A seven year sentence,
Mouth is silenced,
My hands are cuffed, tightly to,
Wall of justice.

Chorus:
Oh… My siren blazing,
Catch the devil,
Risking my life,
I can’t justify,
A seven year sentence, no,
My mouth is silenced,
My hands are cuffed, tightly to,
Wall of justice.

Finish:
Got to break the cycle,
Build a stronger,
Wall of justice.

WALL OF JUSTICE

Me And My Six String:

Verse 1:
Got off the train in a Texas vibe,
Drove my Chevy for awhile,
It was the greatest memory, had in a while,
Got my six string in the back,
Each stop I’d play till my fingers were black,
Singing songs at the top of my lungs before hitting the swag.

Chorus :
Those were the nights (meant something to me),
Under stars sparkling bright,
Those were the days (meant something to me),
Driving down freedom highway,
Just me and my six string,
Yeah! (me and my six string),
Me and my six string.

Verse 2:
Took a left to the gambling man,
Read his cards held in his hand,
Before he threw them on the table, with a bang,
Put my money bag in the back,
Next to my six string zipped in black,
Driving through a small ghost town before hitting the sack.

Chorus :
Those were the nights (meant something to me),
Under stars sparkling bright,
Those were the days (meant something to me),
Driving down freedom highway,
Just me and my six string,
Yeah! (me and my six string),
Me and my six string.

Bridge:
If only I could do that now,
Me and my guitar travelling round,
Those were the best damn days,
Of my life…Yeah!

Chorus :
Those were the nights! (meant something to me),
Under stars sparkling bright,
Those were the days! (meant something to me),
Driving down freedom highway,
Just me and my six string,
Yeah! (me and my six string),
Me and my six string!

Finish:
Oh!
Me and my six string!
Just me and my six string.

ME AND MY SIX STRING

Saluting You:

Verse 1:
Feel the breeze,
Breeze of freedom,
Hold our flag,
Way up high,
Thinking of you,
Blood stains invisible,
A warrior,
Shines on through.

Verse 2:
Feel the trigger,
Remember you,
When bullets fly,
They sing a tune,
An anthem’s story,
Singing about you,
A warrior,
Shines on through.

Chorus :
Although years have flown on past,
Our memories will always last,
A bond that will never be broken,
Where we’ve been only God’s spoken,
I’m saluting you,
Yeah… Saluting you.

Feel the whisky,
Down my throat,
Remembering,
When we would toast,
With no fear of falling,
Patriotic sound,
Raise it high to you my friend,
And throw it down.

Chorus:
Although years have flown on past,
Our memories will always last,
A bond that will never be broken,
Where we’ve been only God’s spoken,
I’m saluting you,
Yeah… Saluting you.

Soul Drifter:

Verse 1:
I knew the sound it wasn’t right,
The feelings torn inside,
When you stood facing the other way,
You knew that bluebirds only cry.

Verse 2:
Time is moving slowly by,
I feel so lost inside,
Turning my head to face the other way,
Spreading my wings and hope to fly.

Chorus :
Ooh,
Soul drifter,
Ooh,
Soul drifter,
Ooh,
I’m a lost, soul drifter.

Verse 3:
There’s so many I can try,
But I’m all frozen inside,
Changing path to walk the other way,
It’s a heartache sacrifice.

Verse 4:
Within myself I long to find,
The flame trapped deep inside,
I could rise above it anyway,
But my heart would slowly die.

Chorus :
Ooh,
Soul drifter,
Ooh,
Soul drifter,
Ooh,
I’m a lost, soul drifter.

Chorus :
Ooh,
Soul drifter,
I want to love again! Ooh,
Soul drifter,
Got to find my flame!

CUT BOTH WAYS:

Verse 1:
In the night,
Holding our son,
I got the call,
To fight as one,
Don't cry my lady,
I'll come back home.

Verse 2:
Hear her voice,
In a foreign land,
Just a few weeks left,
I've changed here darling,
Revenge set in my brain,
But I'm coming home.

Chorus:
As I hug you both tight,
Know I love you so,
But the vision too strong,
You have to let me go…

My mind ain't here,
I need to go back,
Revenge too fierce,
There's a knife in my back,
My mind ain't clear,
In this fairytale place,
Just one last time,
Though I'm cut both ways.

Verse 3:
Back in dirt,
Time slowing down,
I covered many,
But he hit the ground,
Feels worse than before,
On my way home.

Chorus:
As I hug you both tight,
Know I love you so,
But the vision too strong,
You have to let me go…

My mind ain't here,
I need to go back,
Revenge too fierce,
There's a knife in my back,
My mind ain't clear,
In this fairytale place,
Just one last time,
Though I'm cut both ways.

Chorus:
My mind ain't here,
I need to go back,
Revenge too fierce,
There's a knife in my back,
My mind ain't clear,
In this fairytale place,
Just one last time,
Though I'm cut both ways.

Verse 4:
Took prosthetics,
For me to say,
I've done my time,
Son I'm home to stay,
I'm ready to start again,
And I won't let go…

Ohh I won't let go,
No I won't let go.

CUT BOTH WAYS

DON’T GIVE UP THE FIGHT:

Verse 1:
Through heart’s beating,
He feels your pain,
Guilty tears are flooding the ground,
By the devil’s game,
Losing focus,
No sleep at night,
Feel the walls start tumbling,
Dreading daylight.

Chorus:
Know he's here,
Right there with you,
Even though you can not see him,
He feels it too….

Now don't you give up the fight,
That's not your fate,
You see you've built your own prison,
But can escape,
So don't you give up the fight,
Don't give up the fight,
No don't give up the fight,
Your path awaits.

Verse 2:
Please stop blaming,
Yourself that way,
There's no easy understanding,
That can explain,
Life's planned meanings,
Why let us hurt,
When the pain gets unbearable,
A heart’s desert.

Chorus:
Know he's here,
Right there with you,
Even though you can not see him,
He feels it too….

Now don't you give up the fight,
That's not your fate,
You see you've built your own prison,
But can escape,
So don't you give up the fight,
Don't give up the fight,
No don't give up the fight,
Your path awaits.

FLY FALLEN BROTHERS:

Verse 1:
Sitting beneath the shady,
Oak tree,
With memories flashing in front,
Of me,
Why was it that I,
Survived,
When my fallen brothers,
Took flight,

Verse 2:
Grave stones I visit,
Each week,
Lay a poppy for their souls,
To seek,
Rest my head on cold,
Grey stone,
With grass surrounding,
Overgrown.

Chorus:
Fly fallen brothers of mine,
Your hearts too big to leave behind,
Our memories safe locked in my mind,
Respect you gave for all our time,
Fly fallen brothers of mine,
Fly.

Verse 3:
Living with what my eyes,
Have seen,
My brothers lost in front,
Of me,
How much can one,
Soldier take,
But pushing on for my,
Family's sake,

Verse 4:
See kids in the street,
Laughing,
It's almost as if I'm,
Dreaming,
Hard to face when,
Grieving hate,
Reminded it was for our,
Country's sake

Bridge:
Fallen brothers never had the chance,
To see an aftermath of life enhance.

Chorus:
Fly fallen brothers of mine,
Your hearts too big to leave behind,
Our memories safe locked in my mind,
Respect you gave for all our time,
Fly fallen brothers of mine,
Fly.

Chorus:
Fly fallen brothers of mine,
Your hearts too big to leave behind,
Our memories safe locked in my mind,
Respect you gave for all our time,
Fly fallen brothers of mine,
