Lyrics

Staring Down The Sun

Written By: James Grehan

Looking through a diamond eye, we never thought you'de pass us by.

You're like the perfect melody that nobody could ever sing.

If harmony means we are one, then I've been staring down the sun.

Ain't nobody ever gonna hang a sign on me man. Never leave me with a cop that has an attitude and if you leave to be crucified upon fence then I'll keep coming back, I'll keep coming back that's what I'll do!

You left us hanging by a thread for reasons I can't understand. This shadows hanging over me 'til I'm consumed entirely.

If harmony means we are one, then I've been staring down the sun.

Ain't nobody ever gonna hang a sign on me man. Never leave me with a cop that has an attitude and if you leave to be crucified upon fence then I'll keep coming back, I'll keep coming back that's what I'll do!

I've been staring down the sun!

What You Wanted

Written By: James Grehan

Come one and all meet me under the street light.
The blood that stains the hearts of a militant street fight.
The feeling I don't know no more, a little less than perhaps before.
We're trying hard and we're trying to discover but while she cries he smiles from above her.
You can rock and I will role, find a little time to rest his sole.

Hey, it's what you wanted, anyway.

That's one for the money and two for the devil, trying to make the meat with our asses to the metal.
I don't know if I can let this slide and the bruises on the marks are kinda hard to hide.
I don't know if I can let this be you know it's hard to find the truth but then the truth is hard to see.
