Track Name: Broken Mirror
(Introduction by special guest Brittney Slayes)

"Mirror mirror, on the wall
Who is the fairest of them all

You seek a praise I cannot give
To see that day, you will not live

What? how dare you?
Broken Mirror do speak with haste,
Your final words I would not waste

Seek your truth on the mirrors face
Fail to see, darkness awaits"

-

Young, Betrothed
But she lost her grip and our love died by her ultimatum
Time, slipped away
I’ve lived loved and lost by the wayside of blinded ambition

Smile, Lie… feed on my expectations
Oh what a gal
Teach me, weakness
Show me it’s myself that I see
Broken Mirror
Waste my time
I won’t stay here

Guitar Solo

The worst, was yet to come
She drank my affections and grinned at my broken reflection
Now you, are cruel
A puppet to you, am I?
Shall I dance? Shall I sing? Play the fool? Do thy bidding?
I’ll just sit here and watch while you

Smile, Lie… feed on my expectations
Oh what a gal
Teach me, weakness
Show me it’s myself that I see
Broken Mirror
Lesson learned
I won’t stay here… I need some time to think

Instrumental Break

Someday, you’ll find your way back home
Time now, I’ve played my part I must go
So long,
Farewell,
Good luck
Good bye

Guitar solo

Yeah, long since then now here I stand
I’m awake
You have shown me much I’d never had learned without you
Your love
Time has come and gone
footsteps part for you and I
Let love guide us forever.
Track Name: Take My Hand
Time to go
Come son now don’t look so sad
You must be strong now

Mother waits
She needs you to be by her side
It won’t be long now

Everywhere you go
She’ll be by your side
The stars shine bright tonight
She’ll see you in their light
Ooooo

There he is
Come son give mommy a hug
I’m so glad now

Wipe those tears
You don’t want to make mommy cry
Can’t have that now

Everywhere you go
I’ll be by your side
The stars shine bright tonight
I’ll see you in their light
Ooooooooo

Son, take my hand
Listen closely darlin’ time grows short
And don’t be afraid
I love you so much
Be brave my son
There is so much left I want to share with you
Oh god please don’t him from me yet

Take my hand
Take my hand
It won’t be long now
Take my hand
Take my hand
It won’t be long now
What are you waiting for
What are you waiting for
What are you waiting for
What are you wa......

Everywhere I’ve been
You’ve been by
My side

Everywhere I've been
You've been by my side
The stars shine bright tonight
I'll see you in their light
Ooooooooo
Track Name: Great Art
Hey, here we go again
You’d think I’d learn my lesson but it never seems to stick with me
You, you get inside my head
You’d think I’d try to fight it but its all the more you’re on my mind

Well well well is this true I cannot tell I guess we’ll see
Voices in my head
Down down down where the truth became the lie I’m so confused
Great art will come

Hey, you don’t seem to need me, unfortunately
And here go again
Now, is where the magic starts.
Apparently reality it takes a little time to see

Na na na na na no

Well well well is this true I cannot tell I guess we’ll see
Voices in my head
Down down down where the truth became the lie I’m so confused
Great art will come

Every time I see her its too late
My heart begins to race
Rattle in its cage bang bang
The lie was so much fun
My infatuation

Guitar solos (Roger **with special guest Guitarist Dean Lamb)

Well well well is this true I cannot tell I guess we’ll see
Voices in my head
Down down down where the truth became the lie I’m so confused
Great art will come

Every time I see her its too late
My heart begins to race
Rattle in its cage bang bang
The lie was so much fun
My infatuation

Time brings change and I have grown
The light so far away
Fades
Love
Mistakes
Learn
Create
Art
Awaits

Wait for what great art will come
Track Name: Bittercup
Hey, pull up a chair, let us chat you and I
You seem to have the wrong idea
Confused just relax, need a light? Try the wine
Its time you paid for all you’ve done
Unto me

Like what? Well let's see
Fear, disrespect, insecurity
What could it be that I’m going to say?

Thank you, for me. Without you I would not be
This way

Hey, sorry old chap I don’t mean to be cruel
It seems you’ve left me no choice
I believed in your words, I was played like a fool
Lets wipe that smile from off of your face
So listen closely

You’re coarse, and unkind
You threaten and you whine
You’re generally pathetically sad
But its true what I’ll say to you

Thank you, for me. Without you, I would not be
This way

Guitar Solo

Thank you, for me. Without you, I would not be
This way
Track Name: Between
I don't know where I'll be
But I know you'll be ok
With the wind at my back I'll be sailing away
I love and I'll miss you
But I'm off to be all I can be

Farewell to you as well
I know that you'll be ok
But these words and the hate
I can't take it anymore
With or without you
I'll show you what you couldn't see

The price of this life isn't money or pain
It's to see your life's loves left alone
Was it worth it I guess, I know it no other way
Mark my words I'd not change anything

On I ride, the miles pass me by like so many lost faces
When love and dreams collide,
I always end up alone

Guitar solo

This is a sad good bye
I know that we'll be ok
But it's clear to us both there's no love here anymore
Forever is over so
I'm off to be all I can be

The price of this life isn't money or pain
It's to see your life's loves left alone
Was it worth it I guess, I know it no other way
Mark my words I'd not change anything

On I ride, the miles pass me by like so many lost faces
When love and dreams collide,
I always end up alone

Guitar Solo

Was it worth it I guess, I know it no other way
Mark my words I'd not change anything

On I ride, the miles pass me by like so many lost faces
When love and dreams collide,
I always end up
I always end up

I end up where I belong
Track Name: Wise Guy
I did not know what cruel fate awaited
That day those words escaped my lips
She's in way over her head
So I just said
"What you did was real stupid"
Wait
Oh great, now she's really mad
I'm sorry, so sorry.

Nobody wants,
Nobody needs,
Nobody likes
A wise guy

How dare that fool bring truth to the table,
This lesson learned he'll not forget
He's all clockwork and no heart
So I'd impart
"You always think you're so damn smart"
Wait
Oh great, now he's really mad
I'm sorry, so sorry.

Nobody wants,
Nobody needs,
Nobody likes,
A wise guy

Guitar Solo

It's really all my own damn fault
Wait
Oh great, now I'm really mad
I'm sorry, so sorry

Nobody wants,
Nobody needs,
Nobody likes
A wise guy

I didn't not know what cruel fate awaited
That day those words escaped my lips

Nobody wants,
Nobody needs
Nobody likes,
A wise guy.
