Track Name: Love is the Answer
When I'm feeling kinda blue
And I don't know what to do
When my day is goin' bad
cuz it feel like I've been had
When I'm feeling all alone
cuz no one's callin' on the phone
And if feels like I'm 'bout to fall
Cuz it seems I've lost it all

I REMEMBER
Love is the answer
to almost every question
I REMEMBER
Love is the answer
to almost every question

When you're feeling kinda blue
And you don't know what to do
When your day is going bad
cuz it feels like you've been had
When the news has got you down
with war and violence all around
when they're trying to sell you fear
be the headlight not the deer

Love is the answer
to almost every question
REMEMBER
Love is the answer
to almost every question

Love is the answer
to almost every question
REMEMBER
Love is the answer
to almost every question
Track Name: Timber
You know he’s got a big… Truck
but his heart’s even bigger.
And when he’s rollin’ on by
he makes my whole body shiver
so I bought a new skirt
to go with my new sweater
if he’s got a girlfriend
I’m gonna make him forget her

TIMBER – I’m fallin’ hard over him

I hear he’s got a big... boat
but that his heart’s even bigger
so if he calls in for bait
I’m gonna have to deliver
and I’d float anywhere
with this guy down a river
you know I ain’t loose but for him I think I’d have to consider

TIMBER – I’m fallin’ hard over him (x 4)

Don’t bring down all the beautiful trees in the forest
Don’t make me fall, live you’ve done with all the rest
I want to grow, strong and tall – toward the sun and the moon and the stars
Don’t make me fall

I hear he’s got a big... brain – but that his heart’s even bigger
If his love was a gone I think I’d like to put my hand on his trigger
And I’ve got a good friend. You know she’s more like a sister
She wants to tell him that I like him if she does you know I’ll never forgive her

TIMBER, I'm fallin' hard over him
Track Name: Fightin' the Good Fight
I tend to want what I can’t have
Or else I don’t know what I want
I wish that I could just make up my mind
When I order in a restaurant
I tend to get myself in strange situations
and then I do things that I later regret
I wonder sometimes if I’ll ever succeed here
to get out of emotional debt.

But I’m fighting the dood fight
Yeah I'm fightin' the good fight in my head
I'm fighting the good fight
Gonna keep on fighting the good fight till the end

I tend to worry about where I’m heading
Or else I ponder upon where I’ve been
I wonder sometimes what I’d do different here
If I were a congress woman
I tend to worry about our planet
You know I think of her as my old friend
I wish that we could all just get it together here
but I know everything good thing must end.

But I’m fighting the Good fight…

This voice inside my head – it tells me I’m no good
It tells me to give up. You know I’d give up if I could
This voice inside my head it says I’ve already lost the race
It tells me I’m too old to keep up a steady pace
But I won’t give up the race – no I won’t give up the race…

Cuz I'm fighting the good fight...

Now, I don’t believe in the devil - but I do believe that evil exists
And I’d rather walk in the light of day than in the darkness shaking my first. And I have a code that I live by. It says what goes around comes back around. Treat others how you’d like to be treated. And what was lost once will be found.

And keep fightin’ the good fight…
Track Name: The Devil's Playground
You’ve got my full attention
But now I’m headin’ in the wrong direction
You’ve got me walking into walls – don’t think I have to tell you why
You get my sense of humor
You’re another psychedelic boomer
You’ve got me talking to myself

Don’t think I have to tell you what I’m thinkin’ - and why I’m drinking and why I’m sinking down – down – down - to the devil’s playground

You’ve got a way of moving – it’s a funky sort of way of grooving
I’m trying not to think about you. It’s not an easy thing to do
Cuz You understand my passions – that I’m not into the latest fashions.
You’ve got my tossin’ in my bed – won’t you get out of my head
Stop runnin’ round in my head.
I’ll meet you on the devil’s playground
LA DA LA DA DA Oh yeah
Don’t think I have to tell you what I’m thinkin’ - and why I’m drinking and why I’m sinking down – down – down - to the devil’s playground

You get my sense of humor
You’re another psilocybin boomer
You’ve got me talking in my sleep

Don’t think I have to tell you what I’m thinkin’ - and why I’m drinking and why I’m sinking down – down – down - to the devil’s playground
Track Name: Fear's What You Make It
Life is precious – our world’s amazing
So, don’t waste it – don't be lazy
Don’t be timid - Don’t be scared
You can do it - Lose your fear

Maybe there’s a monster in your closet
Maybe it’s right under your bed
Maybe someone’s following you
So, turn it around – turn it around – turn it around
And face it. Just face it.
Fear’s what you make it

You are beautiful - and unique
But it’s critical – that you see it.
Don’t let anyone push you around
Put your roots down – down in the ground

CHORUS

I know a girl – who sits at home alone most every night
And I know a man who drinks to the bottom of a bottle cuz he’s afraid of his light.
Don’t be afraid of your light. Just face it!

Fear’s what you make it
I’ll even stand naked
Gonna face it - cuz fear's what you make it
Track Name: Vigilante Man
Now I hear you bought a gun
And you’re takin’ it to the street
cuz he hurt your silly pride
when he knocked you off your feet

You coulda let it slide on by
But you couldn’t let him see you cry
So you’re takin’ to the street
and into your own hands

I hear you lost a shady bet
and now you’re swimmin’ in the mud
You’re buried ten feet deep in debt
you know it might as well be blood

You coulda let it float on by
now you’re gonna have to run and hide
because you’ve taken it to the street
and into your own hands – Mr. Vigilante Man

Oh, where are you gonna run?
And where are you gonna hide?
You think you’re so tough with that gun
When are you gonna learn – a real man doesn’t need one
He doesn’t need one

You coulda let it slide on by
Now you’re gonna have to run and hide
cuz you’ve taken it to the street
and into your own hands.
Guess you’re a Vigilante man
