1: Rock and Roll is Dead

You think you're on top of the world But you know it's really over Runnin' round with diamond rings And coke spoons that are overflowin Rock and Roll is Dead But all the money in the world Can't buy you from the place you're going to Rock and Roll is Dead (x3) You can't even sing or play an instrument So you just scream instead You're living for an image So you got five hundred women in your bed Rock and Roll is Dead But it's real hard to be yourself When you're living with those demons In your head Rock and Roll is Dead (x3)

2: Circus

One day while I was searchin For what I'll never find She walked into my story Said she could change my mind This is the final offer She said to make it quick Don't lose out on this wonder So I had to place my bet Welcome to the picture show Watching your life Never know which way to go It might not be right So you'd better be strong What kind of circus is this What kind of fools are we when is the final curtain What can I do to set me free Welcome to the real world You better be strong Never know which way to go It might end up wrong so you'd better be strong Too many games we have to play They always change the rules You and me just try to get along What can I do I've got to be strong She walked into my daydream She told me how it had to be Welcome to the picture show Watching your life Never know which way to go It might not be right Welcome to the real world You got to be strong Never know which way to go It might end up wrong Welcome to the picture show Watching your life It might end up wrong So you better be strong You got to be strong You better be strong

3: Beyond the Seventh Sky

Beyond the 7th sky There's a room where we are with God Beyond the sun and moon Where the angels will be our guards Where the weather doesn't change Everyday is summer As the sands are numbered Instead of cannonball grey Do you think it's kinda strange Or can we be lovers as the spirit covers our electrified rage Hold me mama And we'll fly across the sea Way beyond the moon and stars and sky I'm talkin about you and God and I Now that the time is near I'm ready I have no fear I know you're the one my dear The stars will come out tonite In time for our sacred flight Together we'll be for life And I will burn in your flame Kiss me baby Take my hand and come with me I'm talkin' about the moon and stars and sky I'm talkin' about you and God and I Let's take it to the place where life was formed And to the place where Jesus Christ was born

4: Tunnel Vision

All I want Is all you got Make me happy baby And I'll make it hot I don't need no doctor To tell me what to do 'Cause I know I'm goin' Straight ahead for you *chorus* I've got that tunnel vision goin' through my head I can't help myself all I see is red Tunnel vision goin' through my head Lay me down inside your flying bed All that's yours And all that's mine We'll put together baby And we can combine We don't need no lawyer Let's not make this long We just need a love thing That's beautiful and strong (chorus x2) Make it funky now

5: Can't Get You Off My Mind

Life is just a lonely highway I'm out here on the open road I'm old enough to see behind me But young enough to feel my soul I don't wanna lose you baby And I don't wanna be alone Don't wanna live my days without you But for now I'll have to be without you *chorus* I've got a pocket full of money And a pocket full of keys that have no bounds But then I think of loving And I just can't get you off of my mind Babe can't you see That this is killing me I don't want to push you baby And I don't want you to be told It's just that I can't breathe without I feel like I'm gonna lose control (chorus) What are the rules and reasons and the dos and don'ts Tell me baby tell me baby What do you feel inside (chorus)

6: Magdalene

She was only seventeen In her prime of life she was lean And her only dream was to be on the silver screen She hailed from north of Baltimore Her mama says she'd end up a whore And she spent all of her dough on the movie show *chorus* She's all go go go yeah yeah She wears her pants on her hips too low She learned it all in magazines She's Magdalene Ain't it funny how the sun shines She was only seventeen She packed her bags and went to the scene She said I'm gonna take on this town and I'm gonna be the queen She mingled like she'd been there before She worked it till they hollered for more Now everybody knows (chorus)

7: God Is Love

God is love Through all your trials and tribulations God is love He'll get you through all situations God is love And if you are ready he always is ready for you *chorus* God loves everyone That's why he gave his son, oh yeah And you should feel his pain Yet he gave us everything God is love He'll get you through your pain and sorrow God is love He's coming back maybe tomorrow God is love And if you are ready he's gonna be ready for you (chorus) And though much time has passed His words and promises always last And I am here to say That he loves each one of us in every way God is love He makes the rain that makes the flowers God is love And so amazing are his powers God is love And if you are ready he always is ready for you (chorus)

8: Thin Ice

You must be walking On shaky ground You're always jumping At every sound You've been a hustler for all your days A real motherfucker in every way When you're a loser you're all alone So you made up for everything That you'd though you lost But you paid a cost Hey... *chorus* You can live your life for so long But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall You can live your life for so long But when you're walking on thin ice you will fall You're always running with every game First you're pushing coke and then you're hoing dames You say you acn't give nothing better back Than you got back at home Well I tell you that's bullshit brother And that's a heavy load It's an illusion when you think you're the boss Oh no no no Cause you really ain't got a thing But the crumbs you're tossed But don't you feel the frost Hey... (chorus)

9: Don't Go and Put a Bullet in Your Head

Don't go and put a bullet in your head Just turn your life around instead Don't go and put a bullet in your head I'm gonna get it But workin' nine to five just doesn't let it I feel I'm wastin' time and I regret it Can't even feed my wife and my kids Oh I'm longing to find it A taste of the sweeter life oh my Only it takes a little time No don't do it Don't go and put a bullet in your head Just turn your life around instead Don't go and put a bullet in your head Oh my oh my Ain't got no credit Can't even pay my rent Where will I get it There's a liquor store right down the block I'll get it Can't even feed the pain in my heart Oh I'm longing to find A piece of the bigger pie oh my Only it takes alittle tme No don't do it Don't go and put a bullet in your head Just turn your life around instead Don't go and put a bullet in your head Oh my oh my Don't go and put a bullet in your head Just turn your life around instead Don't go and put a bullet in your head

10: In My Life Today

When my memory starts to wander I sit back and I ponder How the whole worlds gone asunder I feel the rain and I hear the thunder I was bare and I was lost But you were there and I was born You are the force and strength In my life today And oh how I thank you father For giving us all over and under You're a mystery you're a wonder I always knew since I was younger I think about the way that you make it right So full of love and sacrifice I say yeah yeah yeah... BUt you were right and I was wrong Cause I was weak and you were strong You are the force and strength In my life today And now that the darkness has faded I'm no longer blinded I can see And I don't have to wait no longer Cause it's all about being free Every day every way I'm gonna get myself together Every day any way

11: The Resurrection

If you could feel what I could feel Well then you'd know his love is real If you could hear what I could hear Well then you'd kbnow the king is near The resurrection is here to stay And he's coming back again Look what he's done to me Now I am living in another space and time He walked on the righteous path To keep us from Satan's wrath We are not alone And we're going home The resurrection is here to stay And he's coming back again The resurrection is here to say That he's coming back again To reclaim all his souls and set us free The resurrection is here to say That he is coming back again To reclaim all his souls
