Track Name: The King Will Come
In the fire, the king will come.
Thunder rolls, piper and drum.
Evil sons, overrun,
Count their sins, judgment comes.

The checkerboard of nights and days,
Man will die, man be saved.
The sky will fall, the earth will pray,
When judgment comes to claim its day.

See the word of the prophet
On a stone in his hand.
Poison pen revelation,
Just a sign in the sand.

The checkerboard of nights and days,
Man will die, man be saved.
The sky will fall, the earth will pray,
When judgment comes to claim its day.

See the word of the prophet
On a stone in his hand.
Poison pen revelation,
Just a sign in the sand.
Track Name: Warrior
I'm leaving to search for something new,
Leaving everything I ever knew.
A hundred years in the sunshine
Hasn't taught me all there is to know.

A valley, we will gather there,
Helpless in our surrender.
Tomorrow the plough becomes the sword,
Make us stronger in our danger.

Time will pass away,
Time will guard our secret.
I'll return again
To fight another day.

I'll have to be a warrior,
A slave I couldn't be,
A soldier and a conqueror,
Fighting to be free.
Track Name: Throw Down The Sword
Throw down the sword,
The fight is done and over,
Neither lost, neither won.
To cast away the fury of the battle
And turn my weary eyes for home.

There were times when I stood at death's own door
Only hoping for an answer.

Throw down the sword,
And leave the glory,
A story time can never change.
To walk the road, the load I have to carry,
A journey's end, a wounded soul.

There were times when I stood at death's own door
Only searching for an answer.
Track Name: Rock 'n' Roll Widow
It happened in an open field
Down in a southern state
And no one knows the reasons why
Some would say it's hate
They shot the guy who sold the dogs
It came as some surprise
And to the lady standing there
Brought sadness to her eyes

She's a rock and roll widow
Living in this town
Another rock and roll widow
Since they gunned him down

The heat of day still hung around
As night began to fall
The sheriff came up from the town
In answer to the call
The band played on in darkness
Not knowing what to do
As people ran from side to side
Just looking for a clue

She's a rock and roll widow
Living in this town
Another rock and roll widow
Since they gunned him down

It happened in an open field
Down in a southern state
And no one knows the reasons why
Some would say it's hate
They shot the guy who sold the dogs
It came as some surprise
And to the lady standing there
Brought sadness to her eyes

She's a rock and roll widow
Living in this town
Another rock and roll widow
Since they gunned him down
Track Name: Ballad of the Beacon
We'll be leaving this town in the morning,
Tommorrow we'll be able to see,
I've had me enough of this city,
And she's had enough out of me.

Say if I climbed to the mountains,
Would you still follow me there,
Steal me away in an echo,
The mountains will always be there.

I'm turning my sights on the country,
Sold everything that I own,
I'm heading away from the bright lights,
Looking for where the wind blows.

Say if I climbed to the mountains,
Would you still follow me there,
Steal me away in an echo,
The mountains will always be there.

We'll be leaving this town in the morning,
Tommorrow we'll be able to see,
I've had me enough of this city,
And she's had enough out of me.

Say if I climbed to the mountains,
Would you still follow me there,
Steal me away in an echo,
The mountains will always be there.
Track Name: Baby What You Want Me To Do?
Got me runnin'
Got me hidin'
Got me run hide hide runnin'
Anyway you want to let it roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Got me doin' what you want me
Baby what you want me to do

Goin' up
Goin' down
Goin' up down down up
Anyway you want to let it roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Got me doin' what you want me
Baby what you want me to do

Got me peepin'
Got me hidin'
Got me peep hide hide peepin'
Anyway you want to let it roll
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Got me doin' what you want me
Baby what you want me to do
Track Name: The Pilgrim
instrumental
Track Name: Blowin' Free
I thought I had a girl
I know because I seen her.
Her hair was golden brown
Blowin' free like the cornfields.

She was far away
I found it hard to reach her.
She told me you can try
But it's impossible to find her.

In my dreams everything was all right,
In your schemes you can only try.

I thought I had a girl
I know because I seen her.
Her hair was golden brown
Blowin' free like the cornfields.
Track Name: Jail Bait
I'm wondering why your face no longer shines,
I'm wondering why your face no longer shines.
I'm wondering why you're always on my mind.
I'm stll wondering, give me a little more time.

I need to know why I can't see your tears,
I need to know why I can't see your tears.
I need to know how many lonesome years
I want to make you cast away your fears.

I'm wondering why your face no longer shines,
I'm wondering why your face no longer shines.
I'm wondering why you're always on my mind.
I'm stll wondering, give me a little more time.
Track Name: Lady Whiskey
Lady Whiskey, such a sad sight, stumblin' as she walks.
She even hates herself sometimes.
Keep well clear, for a Saturday night.

Drowns her sorrow, eases her pain,
Wait till tomorrow, she'll do the same again.

Lady Whiskey's got a man, and he's just like her,
Tryin' to get the key in the door,
When they come home on a Saturday night.

Drowns her sorrow, eases her pain,
Wait till tomorrow, she'll do the same again.

Lady Whiskey's got a son, she's got a daughter, too.
The son's ok, but the daughter's on the way
When she comes home on Saturday night.

Drowns her sorrow, eases her pain,
Wait till tomorrow, she'll do the same again.

Lady Whiskey, she gets sick when she goes downtown.
One day drink's gonna put her down,
You won't come home on Saturday night.
Track Name: Phoenix
Bird, rise high from the cinders, leave it all behind,
All the ruins and the fire.

Bird, raise your head from the ashes - many men lay dead.
You can see them like I.

Phoenix rise, raise your head to the sky.
