Track Name: Old Man
Yesterday I thought I knew where it was I'm going to
But halfway there I realized I ain't got no clue
What the hell is going on
Where am I, east or west, take a look at my GPS
Streets were paved just recently, looks too good for my hood
People crossing carefully

Hey hey like I don't know it
Old man, your age is showing

Another day on the job, same routine, or so I thought
Lifting this, pulling that, felt a twinge in my back
What is this?
Later on, that same day, I felt a need to let one fly
But halfway to the boys room I started to without me
What a surprise

He hey, like I don't know it
Old man, your age is showing

You know, I used to think getting old was like the end of the world
I dreaded it, man
But now I'm there and things are different
I don't give a damn about what people think
And it's been a long time coming
Aging is liberating, man
Yeh

Hey hey like I don't know it
Old man, your age is showing
Old man, your time is over
Move aside so slowly
Track Name: This Place
Well, I’m tryin’ to find
Tryin’ to find a way out of this place
I’ve been here so long
Still not used to this place
They tell me one thing but they do another
They try to lead but don’t know where they’re going
They take from me and
They’re taking more from you
And they’ve got more than they know what to do

How long before I snap, you know
I’m not the only one like that
What if we all snapped at one time
What’s gonna happen to your house of cards

Well, I’m gonna try
A new mind and a new face
But what difference will it make
If I’m still in the same place
And the lies keep comin naturally
They really think they’re fooling you and me
And the worst thing is that they think we’re stupid
That we’re grateful for all the shit they give us

How long before I snap, you know
I’m not the only one like that
What if we all snapped at one time
What’s gonna happen to your house of cards

Well I really feel
Like burning all their toys to the ground
I used to be
All about peace and love but you’ve changed me now
And the lies keep comin naturally
They really think they’re fooling you and me
And the worst thing is that they think we’re stupid
That we’ll be grateful for all the shit they give us

How long before I snap, you know
I’m not the only one like that
What if we all snapped at one time
What’s gonna happen to your house of cards
Track Name: In Love With A Woman
I'm in love with a woman
She don't love me enough
She's gonna do what she pleases
If I don't like it it's tough

When she gives me time, it's all fine
I feel like I'm living the dream
I feel like twenty five, like I've got
A brand new life

I hope she lets me down easy
Is that the best I can do
Cause I don't have too much time, no
Til I forget who she is

When she gives me time, it's all fine
I feel like I'm living the dream
I feel like twenty five, like I've got
A brand new life

Where did it go
I just don't know
How did it sink
So Low

Give me your love...

When she gives me time...
Track Name: I Could Never Love You
When you smile, I know just what you want
And who you want it from
When you cry, I feel like making love
In a thousand ways
I care for you baby
But I wanna make one thing clear
I could never love you

On my mind, the wetness that is you
And how it feels on me
In my arms, I feel your shaking body
We're in ecstasy
I'm there for you baby
When no one else is around
But I will never love you

Oh baby, try to understand
I've been alone for way too long
I will never change my ways for you
No matter what you try to say
No matter what you do
Track Name: Turn To Gold
I can feel your sadness
What they did was so wrong
And I know you're feeling
This is gonna drive you down
Into the depths of hell
Please don't feel a need to fight
Don't feel like you have to make it right
It's out of your hands now
You must learn to let it go

And I surely know
That you will overcome this
All your pain is gonna turn to gold

It's so easy now
To throw it all away
You can see the darkness
But not the light that's just beyond
You can't see the people
All around that count on you
You are such a shining light
In their loving eyes, yes you are

And I surely know
That you will overcome this
All your pain is gonna turn to gold
