Track Name: I'm gone
When I was a young man I never thought I'd ever leave
In the place I come from you never fall far from the tree

One day I'm just drifting along the next day I'm gone
All my memories just linger on

Opportunity comes along you gotta grab it when you can
To be brutally honest it never was part of the plan

One day I'm just drifting along the next day I'm gone
All my memories just linger on

Now I'm living somewhere else so far away
You can't see what's coming you gotta live from day to day
Track Name: My stupid brain
Some days I feel like I gotta jump outta my bed
My head spinning round I can't get it outta my head
I can't let go of thing it's nearly driving me insane
And when I lay down it starts right over again

My stupid brain drives me mad every day
I try to stop him but he just won't go away

Sometimes I feel like I've been awake for a week
Always running round I feel like some kind of freak
I wanna slow down but my brain says keep going fast
Sometimes I look back but that's just all in the past

My stupid brain drives me mad every day
I try to stop him but he just won't go away

My head keeps spinning over and over again
I'm just not winning, is it ever gonna end
Track Name: What about now?
What's the world coming to, what the hell should we do
If we don't change it's all through, no good for me and you

Just think about the life we've been given
Instead of thinking about hell and heaven
Instead of fighting we should come together
If we all tried it can only get better

Why are people so cruel, look at the things that we do
There will come a time, we'll all pay for their crimes

Think of the now and not the thereafter
Slow down while the worlds going faster
Do what you can to makes things better
If we don't, we're gonna regret it

We're so out of control, digging ourselves a hole
We keep making mistakes, when ther'es so much at stake

What's the world coming to
People being slaughtered for religion
When it's really about power, money, greed, bad men
What a shit fight

Just think about the life we've been given
Instead of thinking about hell and heaven
Instead of fighting we should come together
If we all tried it can only get better
Track Name: The journey
When you start out on the journey of life
You never see the trouble and the strife
It always seems to be around the bend
Everybody's gotta have a friend

It's never easy when things go wrong
Just keep on trying, you just gotta be strong
Just think of tomorrow, it's a whole new day
Just a little time makes everything OK

When you're walking down the road of life
You're not gonna get it right all the time
But if you try and keep up the fight
You know you're always gonna see the light

It isn't easy all the time
But I've got some that I call mine
So when you're tired and think you're at an end
Don't give up trying, you know you've got a friend
Track Name: Beautiful boys
Beautiful boys became beautiful men
Before my eyes, I remember when

Four boys having fun, playing in the sun
I used to love to watch you run, such a joy for everyone

Beautiful boys, became wonderful friends
I'm as proud right now, as I was back then

Sometimes when I think back to the times we used to share
The way we played together, we've always been such good friends

But life just rolls on, through childhood and beyond
You're journey's just begun, I wish the best for everyone

Beautiful boys, I still remember when
I hate to see you cry, sometimes I'm there again

Four boys having fun, playing in the sun
I used to love to watch you run, such a joy for everyone
Track Name: What happened Dad?
Things I remember about my Dad, are very little and mostly sad
Never happy being home, always out, we learned how to get along

Of the things I can recall, most aren't happy, no not at all
Memories of fights and tears, although it's faded over the years

I don't think about it very often, most of it I've forgotten now

I remember when we went away, we all cried, I won't forget that day
Mum said she couldn't take no more, I didn't understand, I need to learn more

What happened Dad, where did it all go wrong
I know you would have liked another chance, to show you're a better man

I don't think about it very much but I know I could have done with a Dad's touch

I've tried to work out how I feel, I don't feel much at all, It's so surreal
Now with four boys of my own, I've made mistakes but I've been here to watch them grow
You've heard that proverb what's that one? Sins of the father are visited upon the son
Dad was a product of his time, and thankfully I'm one of mine

I don't think about it very often, most of it I've forgotten now
