Track Name: The Ghosts Of Charlie Barracuda
THE GHOSTS OF CHARLIE BARRACUDA

Hiding behind every smell
Hiding behind every song
Hiding behind every gift
Here be ghosts
Here be dragons

Take no heed of the season
Take no heed of the snow
Take no heed of the freezing
Here be ghosts
Here be dragons

Pay no mind to tradition
Pay no mind to the joy
Pay no mind to celebration
Here be ghosts
Here be dragons

Look away from the window
Look away from the cold
Look into the mirror
Here be ghosts
Here be dragons
Track Name: Distance
DISTANCE

I only hear you from a distance now
I still feel sad, sometimes
Still get the feeling, oh the feeling
Of being mistreated
I only hear you
I only hear you from a distance now

I should have told you, right away
Cause I ain’t no fool, no fool anymore
That the good times, all the good times we had
And the bad times, all the bad times we had
I only hear you
I only hear you from a distance now

We never got to talk about, to talk about
All the rights and the wrongs , the rights and the wrongs
That we kept in our hearts, hidden in our hearts
So what good is it, what good is it
I only hear you
I only hear you from a distance now
Track Name: Storm Coming Down
STORM COMING DOWN

She rides in
On the devils back
Riding on that back
She brings the wind

Oh lord, that wind
Blows right through you
And through hope it blows
And leaves nothing behind

Oh, I turned to the sun
And it fled from the sky
From the sky it fell
To it's grave

Oh, three winters coming
And no summers between
No summers to warm
These weary old bones

I’m watching the storm coming down


I see thunder and lightning
Ripping up the sky
Yet I beg for no mercy
Just get me through the night


Oh, I faced the wolves
Staring eye to eye
In those cold cold eyes
I see storms abound

Oh, the wolves they chase
Both the sun and the moon
Soon the sun and moon
Will lay down and die

Oh, the oceans boil
And spill across the lands
Both the land and air
Is foul with poison

Oh, the mountains shake
And soon they'll crumble
They'll crumble and fall
And only dust remain
Track Name: Root To Root
ROOT TO ROOT

Don't turn your back on me now
I've seen it coming for a while
Don't turn your back on me now
This man is not an isle

A wandering man I've always been
Walking the outsides looking in
A wandering man I've always been
I still chase a home in the wind

Even if every word is a lie
All poison and sharp teeth
Even if every word is a lie
I still hear your cries beneath

Like blood spilt upon the ground
Brings the earth to life anew
I spill my blood upon the ground
And I revive my roots to you


The Leaves may have fallen
And the branches left to rot
But we're still bound together
Heart to heart, Root to Root



Roots grown strong as life
All intertwined and tied
Roots grown strong as life
Still withers under pride

In a world that wants us dead
And burnt from the ground
In a world that wants us dead
It's kin where hope is found



The Leaves may have fallen
And the branches left to rot
But we're still bound together
Heart to heart, Root to Root
Track Name: Tired Old Dog
TIRED OLD DOG

You kept me waiting way too long
My head spinning round and round
You made your choice, oh, back then
But now you say that you chose wrong

I hate to break the news to you
But certain facts, I need to say
Can’t help but saying loud
I’ll state my case and then I’m gone


Help me out
Sign me out
Help me out
I’m such a tired old dog
