[Verse 1]
Sometimes I am different
It’s not a crime
My mood changes
From time to time

I go from rage
Into a deep slumber
What did I do? Where did I go?
I don’t know what, I can’t remember (why?)

[Chorus]
Demons
In my head
Can’t control them
My awful dread

Demons
Taking control
I’m fighting back
To get a hold

[Verse 2]
A silent enemy
You cannot see
It creeps up
Hauntingly

Medication
Therapy
Nothing’s working, not counseling
Just your support
Is what I need
I will fight this battle, I won’t sway
To get me through another day

[Chorus]
Demons
In my head
Can’t control them
My awful dread

Demons
Taking control
I’m fighting back
To get a hold

[Verse 3]
The silence is deafening
Can’t hear the noise
Nothing’s around
A vast void
The pain is coming, it’s beckoning

I don’t know who (I am)
As I struggle and push through
I could be Jekyll
I could be Hyde
It’s just a cure I continue to pursue

[Chorus]
Demons
In my head
Can’t control them
My awful dread

Demons
Taking control
I’m fighting back
To get a hold

“breathing sound”

She caught my eye as she walked in
I could not turn, stunned and paralyzed
Affixed on a beauty, I’ve never seen before
I couldn’t leave
I couldn’t ignore
I fell in love, I lost my breath

Beauty so pure, passion immense
She catches my breath
Frozen, my heart intense
I need to breathe
Breathe, breathe, breathe

Staring down the aisle, dressed in pure white
Walking with rhythm and grace, so bright
I reach out and lift her veil
I whisper softly, “I do”
We kiss forever, our love will never fail

Beauty so pure, passion immense
She catches my breath
Frozen, my heart intense
I need to breathe
Breathe, breathe, breathe

My child in my arms, I am full with joy
Looking up at me, a beautiful boy
Never letting go, holding so tight
I am all he can see
I will be his guiding light

She catches my breath
At every glance
I need to breathe
Can’t look away, won’t take the chance

Growing old
Our lives forever intertwined
Her beauty still pure, her hand always in mine
Her smile still glimmers with the flick of her eye
I am entranced
Still stunned and paralyzed

Beauty so pure, passion immense
She catches my breath
Frozen, my heart intense
I need to breathe
Breathe, breathe, breathe

Breathe

To all that say I will never succeed
To all that say it will never be
I take your criticism and negative vibes
Like a dagger in my heart
With hurtful lies

Your pressure on me, it is keeping me down
Holding me under
Making me drown

Your pain and insults
Were making me numb
Draining my strength
Fragile and weak
Easy to succumb

I will o-ver-come
Your insults, your pain
Your verbal attacks getting inside my brain
Each day I overcome
Is another day I have won

Your negativity, holding me back
No more, never again
I am going on the attack

I will stand up
Shout out loud
Raise my fist high
Rise above the crowd

I will o-ver-come
Your insults, your pain
Your verbal attacks getting inside my brain
Each day I overcome
Is another day I have won

Everyday that I am alive
Is another day that I survive
Another day I will achieve
Another day I will be me

I will o-ver-come
Your insults, your pain
Your verbal attacks getting inside my brain
Each day I overcome
Is another day I have won

I Will Overcome

There’s a hole in my heart
Where the love used to be
The trust is now gone
Unfortunately

There’s a hole in my heart
Where the love used to be
Your deceit and your lies
Was suffocating me

You left me shattered
Broken apart
Slow to move forward
Slow to re-start

There’s a hole in my heart
You can never repair
You tore it in two
Through grief and despair

You left in a fight
No guilt, just a swear
I don’t want you back
BECAUSE I DON’T CARE

There’s a hole in my heart
Where the love used to be
I will never be the same
That’s the way it will be

There’s a hole in my heart
I wish you could see
Just emptiness
Where the love used to be

Hole in My Heart

Goin’ on a road-trip
Grab the chips and mix the dip
Put your hand out the window
And ride the wind
Getting’ up to speed, let the fun begin

Take I 80 from NYC to San Fran
It’s a long ride, let’s jump in the van
Grab some roadies, heck grab them all
Pile in, we’ll have a ba….ba….ba….ball

Bangor Maine on the 95
Headin’ south, let’s enjoy the ride
Got my truck, grab my girl
Stop on the way at Disney Wwwwworld

Goin’ on a road-trip
Grab the chips and mix the dip
Put your hand out the window
And ride the wind
Getting’ up to speed, let the fun begin

Wine Country, Napa or Sonoma
Buy some bottles
Let’s have a taste
Put the top down
Head down the P-C-H

Don’t worry, Route 66
You’re not forgotten, you won’t be missed
In Chicago, grab some deep dish
Start up the truck
Playin’ the harmonica
Cruising down to Santa Mo…..mo…..mo…..Monica

Goin’ on a road-trip
Grab the chips and mix the dip
Put your hand out the window
And ride the wind
Getting’ up to speed, let the fun begin

Road Trip

Got a taste that I desire
Licking my lips to quench the fire
I yearn for the chill slipping down my throat
Awaiting the sensation I want to promote

I take mine shaken, never stirred
It’s the only way, it must be observed
One more gulp and I will be a blur
Seems every night the same occurs

One olive - no doubt
Two olives – that’s for sure
Three olives – balance it out
Chill a glass and we’ll have one more

Gin or vodka
Sweet or dry
Many different variations
I don’t know why

One olive - no doubt
Two olives – that’s for sure
Three olives – balance it out
Chill a glass and we’ll have one more

Classic ingredients, don’t sway from the truth
Pour in some gin and dry vermouth
Only one way to respect its name
All other variations are just a shame

One olive - no doubt
Two olives – that’s for sure
Three olives – balance it out
Chill a glass and we’ll have one more

I take mine shaken, never stirred
It’s the only way, it must be observed
One more gulp and I will be a blur
Seems every night the same occurs

Three Olives

Pain
Pain running through my veins
Can’t control the pain
I am going insane
No more sun
Everyday just rain

Lies
Deceit
Sadness
Retreat……. into myself
Nothing ever changes
Just rinse and repeat

Social and T.V.
All the news, how can it be
Misrepresentations filling your vanity
How am I to control the insanity

Pain
Pain running through my veins
Can’t control the pain
I am going insane
No more sun
Everyday just rain

Leaders and politicians
Standing there up on stage
Not looking for a miracle or magician
Round and round, no answers, more rage

Voted you in
We can vote you out
You fail to calm
Just doubt

Confusion on the left
Confusion on the right
No strategy or direction
No end in sight
Need to stand my ground
It’s fight or flight

Pain
Pain running through my veins
Can’t control the pain
I am going insane
No more sun
Everyday just rain

Pain
Pain running through my veins
Can’t control the pain
I am going insane
No more sun
Everyday just rain

PAIN

Can’t sleep
Mind is racing
Haven't slept
My life unkept

I can barely see
Never lets me be
Weakening my soul
Begging on my knees

IN.....SOM......NI.......A!!
Racing through my brain
Pumping through my veins
Staying up all night
Staying up all day
Can’t get any sleep
Getting in too deep
Going out of control
Need to get a hold

Have a drink, have some more
Doesn't help
It’s not the cure
Took a hit, don't know what for
Burned it through
Didn’t even the score

Blood shot eyes
Bitten nails
Nothing works
Going berserk!

IN.....SOM......NI.......A!!
Racing through my brain
Pumping through my veins
Staying up all night
Staying up all day
I can’t get any sleep
Getting in too deep
Going out of control
Need to get a hold

Awake
Restless
Thoughts a mess
Lethargic
Aching
Punching the mattress

Running all night
Can’t ease the load
Mind is racing
Can’t be controlled

IN.....SOM......NI.......A!!
Racing through my brain
Pumping through my veins
Staying up all night
Staying up all day
I can’t get any sleep
Getting in too deep
Going out of control
Need to get a hold

Focus mush, getting scary
Need some sleep
Before it gets hairy

Got to sleep
Nowhere to turn
Got to sleep
Or gonna burn........OUT!

IN.....SOM......NI.......A!!
Racing through my brain
Pumping through my veins
Staying up all night
Staying up all day
I can’t get any sleep
Getting in too deep
Going out of control
Need to get a hold
