Track Name: Gotta Be Free (Live)
I went down to the water
Talked with the tide
Carrying treasures deep down inside
I said "what's your secret? What keeps you alive?"
It said ya gotta be free

Chorus
Ya gotta be free y'all
Yeah ya gotta be free
Ya gotta spread your wings
Yeah ya gotta be free
Ya gotta do what's right for your mind
Yeah Ya gotta be free

So I climbed up a mountain
Just to breathe the air
And I could see forever
From way up there
I sang till my echo sang back to me
It said ya gotta be free

Chorus

I went to the deepest woods
Slept with the trees
And every answer came to my dreams
They said "sister tell everyone to leave us alone, ya know we gotta be free"

In the darkest night
I was drawn to the fire
And the red blue glow
Jumped in my soul
I said "what gives you the right to move up inside me?"
It said ya gotta be free

Chorus
Track Name: Before the Night is Through (Live)
Legend says you can't come back
From the train that rides this track
But we all know how truth gets lost in the pouring rain

A young mans heart is seldom wise
Chasing dreams in distant skies
So Jimmy went down on a south bound train

Chorus

Better get on board before the night is through
Better get on board if you dare to
And if your pain is not yet drowned
Pour another round
Cause someone's going down before the night is through

Pushing steel on that August night
You could tell that things weren't right
By the way that Mary Mae, the way she held her eyes

He could tell she was a working girl
Brought up hard in this mean old world
Selling love that he could never afford to buy

Chorus

Loneliness is all it takes
Jimmy made a big mistake
Now he's gotta pay the man his dues

But down and out ya know he ain't got much
Just a reckless heart and a gentle touch
Now Jimmy is going down
Before the night is through

Chorus
Track Name: Rise Above (Live)
I'm not your fool and I'm not your prey
I will learn to fight and live another day
Cause all these wrongs will only make me strong
I will break your chains and release all this pain

Chorus
And I will rise above
I will learn to love
Cause I've found the strength in me
And I will be what I'm meant to be
And I will rise above

We've all got a story, got a history
I can point at you and you can point at me
Cause everybody wants someone to blame
But nobody wins in this foolish game
It's a foolish game

We've all got choices that we have to make
We can choose to give or we can choose to take
But in end its really up to you
So go ahead and do what your gonna do
But I will....

Chorus
Track Name: Shout It At The Walls (Live)
Guess it's just four walls and me tonight
Can't seem to win or lose this fight
I keep hearing everything you said
Like a broken song inside my head

Kettle sings its song just for one
December's here the snow has just begun
I find myself reaching for your hand
Tell you something only you would understand

This is me feeling less than small
Maybe I'll stand, maybe I'll fall
Maybe I should leave it all behind
Maybe I'll just shout it at the walls

This moving on never seemed right
To me we were always worth the fight
Even though you're not holding me
I feel ya as I sit alone here tonight

This is me feeling less than small
Maybe I'll stand, maybe I'll fall
Maybe I should leave it all behind
Maybe I'll just shout it at the walls

This is me feeling less than small
Maybe I'll stand, maybe I'll fall
Maybe I should leave it all behind
or Maybe I'll just shout it at the walls

This is me feeling less than small
Maybe I'll stand, maybe I'll fall
I don't know how to leave you behind
Maybe I'll just shout it at the walls
Maybe I'll just shout it at the walls
Track Name: Human Zoo (Live)
The sky is falling yet we choose to ignore
They're preaching us religion yet delivering war
Oh delivering war
37 dead in Tunisian sand
Is that the price we have to pay
For your holy land
Oh for your holy land

Chorus
Ya know we better wake up
Before it's too late
We can't heal wounds
With nothin but hate
The help we need
Won't come from above
Unless we find a way
To bomb em with love

We know they're all lying
Yet we choose to believe
One hundred thousand dying
Just when do we grieve?
When do we grieve

Chorus

The violence isn't working
Maybe try something new
Why'd we let the monkeys
Run this human zoo
Oh this human zoo

Chorus
Track Name: Path of Gold (Live)
I thought I walked a path of gold
And that the winds would always Blow my way
But now I see here
There's nothing here beneath my feet
But dust and dreams on a road that leads astray
This pain weighs me down

Let it go

I thought I found my treasure trove
and that the dice would always roll my way
But now it's clear there's nothing here but these old fears
Upon my back like a load of empty bags
So what can I say to you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry

Let it go

It's time for me to find another way
It's dark but I can see the light of day
So this is it! I'm moving on from this cocoon
It's all I need to do
I'm gonna let it go...

Let it go

... I thought I walked a path of gold...
Track Name: High or Low (Live)
I guess it's time to change my game
Tired of chasing trains
Gotta get away

Cause I can't feel high or low
How was I to know
Where this trip would go

Chorus
Cause I got a feeling I can't win this fight
And god knows that it just ain't right
Just ain't right

Cause I've grown tired of living in between
Nightmares and lovely dreams
Where nothing's as it seems

Chorus
