1. The Call of the Wild (3:59)
Like a revelation
Like a beam of light
Like a holy ghost betrayed in the afterlife
It's a new religion
It's a better way
It's a new tomorrow till we're all replaced

In a world so loud
I can't shut it out
No I can't shut it out
Well the time is now yeah

Turn off the silence
And pour out the fire

It's an aggravation
It's a mystery
So many find their solace in technology
An abomination
It's a new disease
Well the time has come to power down and breathe

In a world so loud
I think we're burning out
I think we're burning out
Well the time is now yeah

Turn off the silence
And pour out the fire
It's screaming inside us
The call of the wild

But how this ends I guess we'll have to wait and see
But it don't look that good to me
You can't defend the things you claim have set you free
When you're a slave to the machine

In a world so loud
I think we're burning out
I think we're burning out
Well the time is now yeah

Turn off the silence
And pour out the fire

Turn off the silence
And pour out the fire
(The call of the wild)
It's screaming inside us
The call of the wild
(The call of the wild)

The call of the wild
2. Serve You Right (5:12)
Black habit falling
Seem so divine
Lay down your pure intention
Let it serve you right
Serve you right

Sweet sister Mary
It ain't black or white
You got your apprehension
I got what you like

And you know oh oh oh
You're way up tight
Oh oh oh oh

Lay down your habit, honey
Heaven knows my love will serve you right
Salvation comes by Sunday
But you know redemption comes tonight
Let me serve you right
Let me serve you right

I'm your confessor
Tell me what you need
Purge every dirty secret
And come clean with me

Cause you know oh oh oh
What you need
Oh oh oh oh

Lay down your habit, honey
Heaven knows my love will serve you right
Salvation comes by Sunday
But you know redemption comes tonight
Let me serve you right

Lay down your habit, honey
Heaven knows my love will serve you right
Salvation comes by Sunday
But you know redemption comes tonight
I'm not the second coming
But you know I'll be the first to try
To show you there's still something
Mama come with me I'll serve you right

Let me serve you right
3. My Antidote (4:17)
I guess I've been defined by my condition
I guess I've been defined by what they want
When paradise becomes your own petition
All there's left to find is a lost cause

But in the end
I've only got myself to blame
I was only in the game
For the reasons that were wrong

But it's all I know
Though this song is my salvation
It's the beast I can't control

But it's all I am inside
I got no time for moderation
Getting by still on the only thing I know
My antidote
In stereo

I wonder if the doubts will keep on coming
I wonder if they're almost done with me

But in the end
I've only got myself to blame
I'm a shadow in decay
I'm the tragedy you want

But it's all I know
Though this song is my salvation
It's the beast I can't control

But it's all I am inside
I got no time for moderation
Getting by still on the only thing I know

But it's all I know
Though this song is my salvation
It's the beast I can't control

'Cause it's all I have inside
I got no time for moderation
Getting by still on the only thing I know
My antidote
In stereo
My antidote
4. Mind Your Manners (3:38)
I am the rider, on the road I am a star
A true reminder, what you seek is where you are
I learned the hard way but still you always try to break me down
Your love is sorrow, but still I know I'm glory-bound

Don't get on my way, stand beside the dark, remember
Times change, I don't need you anymore
No way, no why, I don't need your alibi
So mind your man-, just mind your manners now

Don't look me in the eye and say you did no wrong
Don't brazenly deny you ever wished me gone
I learned the hard way, I took the fall, it was a long way down
Your love is sorrow, but still I know I'm glory-bound

Don't get on my way, stand beside the dark, remember
Times change, I don't need you anymore
No way, no why, I don't need your alibi
Mind your man-, just mind your manners now

Mind your manners now
Just remember in the end I'm glory-bound

Don't look me in the eye and say you did no wrong
Don't need to compromise, tomorrow I'll be gone

Don't get on my way, stand beside the dark, remember
Times change, I don't need you anymore
No way, no why, I don't need your alibi
Mind your man-, just mind your manners now
Just mind your manners now
Just mind your manners now
Just mind your manners now
Just mind your manners now
5. Lost Inside the Girl (6:30)
I close my eyes and I pretend
I slip away lying next to her
And for a moment I will rest ashore
I cross the mile, she seems so far
But in my mind I feel her beating heart
And for a moment we are not apart

And I feel that I'm lost inside the girl
When I close my eyes almost to find the words
Love revealed she's a diamond, she's a pearl
She's a ray of light, a shot heard around the world
God I'm lost inside the girl

Forbidden fruit it tastes so sweet
What can I do to get her close to me?
She is the only cure for my disease
Infatuation storms my heart
It's slowly breaking me, I fall apart
What can I do? I always fall so hard

And I feel that I'm lost inside the girl
When I close my eyes almost to find the words
Love revealed she's a diamond, she's a pearl
She's a ray of light, a shot heard around the world
God I'm lost inside the girl

Oh, I'm lost inside the girl
I'm lost inside the girl

She can do no wrong
Still she never seems to answer anymore

Her avatar shines so bright
But my obsession is the darkest kind
She doesn't even know that I'm alive

And I feel that I'm lost inside the girl
When I close my eyes almost to find the words
Love revealed she's a diamond, she's a pearl
She's a ray of light, a shot heard around the world
God I'm lost inside the girl

I'm lost inside the girl
I'm lost inside the girl

She can do no wrong
Still she never seems to answer anymore
She can do no wrong
Still she never seems to answer anymore
6. Read Between the Lines (3:37)
Another offering, another open door
Another effort you ignore
Story line I purged so blatantly
Still you never notice me

Still await for you to come around in time
Still await for you to read between the lines
Come on, come on, read between the lines

Another glance, another hint of what I want
The subtle in your window falls
Still deny if I could only make you see
I would give you what you need

Still await for you to come around in time
Still await for you to read between the lines
Come on, come on, read between the lines

It's been so long, there are times I start to question
If the colons allowed in line
Is it so wrong longing for what can't be mentioned
You're too headstrong, taken me just one try
Oh, just one try

Come on, come on, read between the lines
Come on, come on, it's there for you to find
Come on, come on, it's obvious, I don't pretend
Oh oh

Still await for you to come around in time
Still await for you to read between the lines
Come on, come on, read between the lines
Still await for you to come around in time
Still await for you to read between the lines
Come on, come on, read between the lines
7. Slow Grind (3:35)
I'm a reckless heart
I'm a hard case on my own
Never pay no mind to anything I'm told

I've got no intention
Of ever bending the crown
I don't need redemption not at all

It's a slow grind
It's the same old story line
I'm in a slow grind
You've taken your soul, I'll take mine
Yeah

Never waste my time cause I ain't got time to waste
Never compromise when I know things will never change

No commendation
But still the same old song
No mediation for right or wrong

It's a slow grind
It's the same old story line
I'm in a slow grind
You took yours

It may took so long
To see your true intentions
It took so long
To come around
It took all down
But now it's time to mention
You were wrong, so wrong

It's a slow grind
It's the same old story line
I'm in a slow grind
You've taken your soul, I'll take mine

It's a slow grind
It's the same old story line
I'm in a slow grind
You've taken your soul, I'll take mine

It's a slow grind
It's a slow grind
It's a slow grind
You've taken yours but I'll take mine
8. The One You Loved Is Gone (4:50)
And I wonder even now, whatever came of you
And I wonder even now, where you are
Even though I'm much too proud to ever say it
Your ghost still comes around to haunt my heart

If only time
Could somehow turn the page
If only I
Hadn't walked away

I'm a desperate man who longs to stop the aching
I'm a desperate man who longs to find someone
Who can show me there is joy left for the taking
Who can show me there's a song left to be sung

If only time
Could somehow turn the page
If only I
Hadn't walked away

The lonely embrace of days gone by
So bitter the taste where love survives
But the one you loved is gone

Now I know, now I know
We can't replace what we let go
And still I hope, still I hope
That time will ease the pain
Of losing something that was pure and beautiful

And I wonder even now, whatever came of you
And I wonder even now, where you are

The lonely embrace of days gone by
So bitter the taste where love survives
But the one you loved is gone

La la la la la la la la la la la la
If only time could turn the page
La la la la la la la la la la la
And take me back to yesterday
La la la la la la la la la la la la
Oh, but things would always change
La la la la la la la la la la la
Oh oh
9. Driving Rain (4:10)
Left her heart in a letter
Said she'd never been better
But now I know
My original sin
She is down once again
No, no

It's been so long
Can't remember the last time, you know
It's been so long
So I'm on my way

I can't see the road through the driving rain
But I won't stop now
Her love is calling me home, seems to guide the way
So I won't stop now

To avoid all confusion
She said she's been using
No, not again
Oh, but my fear of losing
The girl always gets me home
'Cause she knows

It's been so long
Still some things will never change, I know
It's been so long
So I'm on my way

I can't see the road through the driving rain
But I won't stop now
Her love is calling me home, seems to guide the way
So I won't stop now

She's the dark to light
She's never satisfied
She always seems to find a reason to hope
That I'll come back tonight
That I will wanna rise
She pulled my strings yet again
So, here we go

I can't see the road through the driving rain
But I won't stop now
Her love is calling me home, seems to guide the way
So I won't stop now
I can't see the road through the driving rain
But I won't stop now
Her love is calling me home, seems to guide the way
So I won't stop now

And I won't stop now
So I won't stop now
10. Sugar Cane (3:09)
Love and decay, love out of time
But my lady's straight, she keeps me in line
Alchemy of her charm
Made me weak from the start

Baby so bitter the fallout
Baby so sour the taste
But when she gives in I'm not too proud to say
She's sweet as sugar cane
She's sweet as sugar cane

What can be said, what can be done
She's losing a head but I know what's to come
She will smile, I will break
She's not the type to be tamed

Baby so bitter the fallout
Baby so sour the taste
But when she gives in I'm not too proud to say
She's sweet as sugar cane

Yeah yeah

She always knows
The card she holds
Will pull me close
And keep me in the lane

Baby so bitter the fallout
Baby so sour the taste
But when she gives in I'm not too proud to say

Baby so bitter the fallout
Baby so sour the taste
But when she gives in I'm not too proud to say
She's sweet as sugar
She's sweet as sugar cane

Sweet as sugar cane
She's sweet as sugar cane
My baby sugar cane
11. The Great Pretender (5:25)
Easy come for some that's easy go
But it's never easy on your own
Times will change for those who, who'd never know
Till it's too late to get back home

Great pretender, there will come a day
When the last song fades and you've grown old
Great pretender, you cannot replace
All the love you lost long ago
Won't you take your final bow, you're on your own

Lights for now they are still shining bright
But you can't escape this truth in time
Mask you wear is only your disguise
To hide the tears that fall inside

Great pretender, there will come a day
When the last song fades and you've grown old
Great pretender, you cannot replace
All the love you lost long ago
Won't you take your final bow, you're on your own

Do you remember when you promised her
That you would be there till the end
A distant dream led to the, to the deepest hurt
And though you've tried, you can't forget

Great pretender, there will come a day
When the last song fades and you've grown old
Great pretender, you cannot replace
All the love you lost long ago
Won't you take your final bow, you're on your own
12. Boulevard of Broken Hearts (4:06)
You struggle night and day
My shooting star, my burning flame
How many dues you've paid
But now the world is yours to take

You thunder screaming out
You can't have any doubt at all

It's time to heed the call
Of all you are, of all you are
Stand up and find resolve
On the boulevard of broken hearts

Remember long ago
You were so young, how could you know
This long and winding road
Will lead you here but you're almost home

What we endure in time
Will in the end just make us strong

It's time to heed the call
Of all you are, of all you are
Stand up and find resolve
On the boulevard of broken hearts

Believe in what you seek and what you want
Just define it
Believe in what you see, my shooting star
This is your time

You struggle night and day
My shooting star, my burning flame
How many dues you've paid
But now the world is yours to take

It's time to heed the call
Of all you are, of all you are
Stand up and find resolve
On the boulevard of broken hearts

On the boulevard of broken hearts

It's time to heed the call
Of all you are, of all you are
Stand up and find resolve
On the boulevard of broken hearts

On the boulevard of broken hearts
