Track Name: End it Right Here
End it Right Here
Go ahead and leave, take all your pictures, I'll find somebody new
Your silly little games leave me playin' the fool, this time I'm breakin' the rules!
You don’t listen to what I’m sayin’, you don’t care about the way I feel
The way I see it, there’s only one way to go,
Why don’t we end it right here, put a stop to the pain,

I can’t take any more now, I can’t deal with you, It felt good but somehow what we had is through
I’m making’ a move for the better; finally I’m on my own.
Take a little time, I still got some trees to climb alone, got to climb it alone, Oh I got to climb it alone

Go ahead and leave, take all your pictures, I'll find somebody new
Your silly little games leave me playin' the fool, this time I'm breakin' the rules!
You don’t listen to what I’m sayin’, you don’t care about the way I feel
The way I see it, there’s only one way to go,
Why don’t we end it right here, put a stop to the pain,
Why don’t we end it right here, put a stop to the pain,
Why don’t we end it right here, Why don’t we end it right here

Track Name: The Wrong Direction
I have tried to seize the day, and I have tried to make love stay
With no questions answered I find a door for another day
Though the roads grown over, it takes me where I need to go

It's just a matter of patience, What you're trying to prove,
You know it's my destination I can't loose...
In the wrong direction, The wrong direction

Now you can roll the dice, and you can make your move
but don't think twice about it, as time will prove
You've got to stick to your guns, don't let your doubt get the best of you
With a little advice from others, you put your mark where it needs to go.

It's just a matter of patience, What you're trying to prove,
You know it's my destination I can't loose...
In the wrong direction, The wrong direction

Of course temptation is on every road
Unholy recreation might kill the seeds you've sown
But if you stand your ground you will survive and grow stronger
Don't let them talk you down, they wont always be around

It's just a matter of patience, What you're trying to prove,
You know it's my destination I can't loose...
In the wrong direction, The wrong direction

Track Name: Blackberry Wine
Blackberry Wine makes me feel fine
Blackberry Wine is a friend of mine, a friend through time
She's alright, She's my Blackberry Wine
Ohhh Na Na Na Na
Nan Na Na Na OOOhhh Na Na Na Na Na Na

On day I feel Blue, She Feels Blue Too
On days I feel down, she always comes around
My baby's right on time
She's alright, She's my Blackberry Wine

Here she comes with the miracle cure,
You know I like my love sweet and pure
Can't get enough because it tastes so fine,
She's my one and only, my Blackberry Wine

Blackberry Wine makes me feel fine
Blackberry Wine is a friend of mine, a friend through time
She's alright, She's my Blackberry Wine
My Blackberry Wine, Sh'e my Blackberry Wine,
I love her all the time!

(Revised addition)
On days I'm long gone, man she let's me go on
On days I feel free, she let's me be me
I love her all the time
She's alright, she's my Blackberry Wine

Lyrics and music by Kirk FLeta
Track Name: Life's What you make it
There's not much for sure babe
But that's for sure I know
Every seed thats planted just might grow
And every step I take
leads me on my journey
take me where I go I wont have to worry

Now some people like to have a home
made of rocks and stone
some people like to ride the wheel all day
but everyone's got to have a choice
in order to be free
life's what you make it can't you see

Life's what you make it
don't ya think that's true?
you know the only one it's up to
man is you
You're gonna find some things in your way
Just like everybody everywhere does
It's not what you say baby, but how it's said
sometimes you gotta lose your pride
to keep a level head

Now dear ole dad he had lot's of money
he's gone from rich to poor
but he's just kickin' his bad luck out that door
(and mama cries) Well there's no crime in believin'
that happiness is a state of mind
peace and love are'nt hard to find
if Life's what you make it
don't ya think that's true
you know the only one it's up to man is you
Life's what you make it
that's what I say
You know we make our own decisions every day

Track Name: Empty Streets
I see the streets are all empty, I guess the children are gone
Where could they go so far from home?
Bad news and corruption, don't wanna get used to it
Doesn't seem strange when it's all you know

Wrong to the left of me, and wrong to the right
what can we do if we all must fight?
I've seen it before, it comes and it goes
we never seem to learn that's the way it goes

I never thought that the book would be right
I never tried to understand it
But now I can see just a bit of the light
Come on in, there's no need to fight it

Black on the right, and white on the left
have all of our senses gone away?
It's all just a matter of a man's insecurity
He can't hold his head up without cuttin' man down

Lyrics and music by Kirk FLeta
Track Name: Bad Love
I can't stand it this way anymore, gotta get out to be free
every time I open the shades of my window,
pain rushes in like it did before
there's a trap door in the hallway
darkness out my window
Got to try and get out, wont be any doubt, bad love is behind me
Bad loooove, Bad love is behind me

Can't stand it this way anymore, gotta get out to be free
Walls can't keep holdin' me this long
I'm breakin out and I'm free for sure
My love keeps slippin' away and I cant keep track of the hour
got to try and get out , wont be any doubt, Bad love is behind me
bad looooove, bad love is behind me

No more hidin' away,
this aint no way for a man to stay
I'm breakin' out of the chains that bind me,
I'm breakin out and I'm free for sure ...
My love keeps slippin' away and I cant keep track of the hour
got to try and get out , wont be any doubt, Bad love is behind me
bad looooove, bad love is behind me
Bad bad love...

Track Name: Stay With Me
Stay with Me
What makes you think that I can go on without you?
What makes you think that I can live alone? Time after time I try to tell you I love you,
Day after day you push me farther and farther away, Don’t push me away now

I don’t wanna go I don’t wanna stay and I cant live without you,
But if you wanna go then that’s alright,
See no reason why we must end a good thing, I just want you to stay, stay with me

What are you saying when you say you don’t love me?
Where are you coming from when you lie? Time after time I try to tell you I love you,
Day after day you push me farther and farther away, don’t push me away now

I don’t wanna go I don’t wanna stay and I cant live without you,
But if you wanna go then that’s alright,
See no reason why we must end a good thing, I just want you to stay, stay with me

What makes you think that you can live without me?
What makes you think that I can live alone? Time after time I try to tell you I love you,
Day after day you push me farther and farther away, Don’t push me away now

I don’t wanna go I don’t wanna stay and I cant live without you,
But if you wanna go then that’s alright,
See no reason why we must end a good thing, I just want you to stay, stay with me

Track Name: Crashing Waves
Crashing Waves

Standing at the Water’s edge, where the land meets the Sea
Amid the turquoise blue and green of the Caribe’
The light shines down in waves, racing across the shore
And I stand here so small but I’m alive, I feel alive
In the Crashing waves

Underneath the light and shadows of the full moon
I see the silhouette of soldiers on the shore
They’ve been searching here for days now, with their guns and in full gear
A week ago they found seven hundred kilos of cocaine here
Just washed up on the shore, washed up on the shore
And now they’re searchin’ for more, in the crashing waves

And all across the world, we’re waging a battle,
Against the odds of time and the greed of men
The strong will protect their soul and their mind
From the devil and with God’s help, will survive, these crashing waves
Ooooohhh these crashing waves

Three thousand years ago the Mayan people settled this land
Building what we still can’t build today
Oh why can’t we turn and learn from the lessons of the past
And find a way to make our civilization last through the crashing waves
These crashing waves

Lyrics and Music by Kirk FLeta
Track Name: Awakened
Awakened
It used to be just a memory, the way I was before I came here
Now I see there’s so much more, take my hand and capture me

Younger days with a younger madness, the way I was before I came here
My road was worn and often traveled, but now it’s time to change my course
But now it’s time to change my course!
See the ice that covers the water, is it strong enough to hold me?
And the farther I step out the more I see, the more it seems real…. To me
So it comes to me, turning my rock into water, bringing my faith to life,
Turning my eyes around until I see what I have found

Older days with an older madness, The way I was before I came here
This road is new and it’s my battle, to try and find what God has planned
, to try and find what God has planned!
See the bridge that covers the canyon, is it strong enough to hold me?
And the farther I step out the more I see, the more it seems real…. To me
So it comes to me, turning my rock into water, bringing my faith to life,
Turning my eyes around until I see what I have found

It used to be just a memory, the way I was before I came here
Now I see there’s so much more, take my hand and capture me

Track Name: Bare Bones
Bare Bones
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones,
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones,
If you’ve a worried mind, get on down to bare bones

Complicated this and digital that, the simple life man that’s where it’s at
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones, If you’re low on time, get down to bare bones

Well I’ve got a friend he drinks a gallon of grog and everything’s for sale except his dog
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones,
If you’ve a worried mind, get down to bare bones

Well ya eat too much, might get fat, ya got too much money don’t know where it’s at
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones, If you’re low on time, get down to bare bones

It’s so easy to get yourself all tied up with a million things to do all day
You got your places to go, your people to see and a bunch of BS that doesn’t really matter anyway

Hustle and the bustle of the big city life I’d rather whittle on a stick with my pocket knife
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones, If you’re low on time, get down to bare bones

Now if your house is all cluttered and ya just can’t breathe, sell all your shit and set your soul free
Bare bones, bare bones, got to get down to bare bones, if you’ve a worried mind, get down to bare bones, If you’re low on time, get down to bare bones
