Lyrics

Evil Falls

Written By: Rob Cannillo

"Goodness slapped me across my face,
It said littleman what you afraid of this is your race,
it took me so long ta achieve,
the happiness that I once could not concieve"

It's high time I quit my evil ways,
It high time I broke on through my haze

I can Hear You Callin"

Written By: Rob Cannillo

"On this highway that we call life,
you will witness greed and rage,
you'll be tempted to look away now,
but we must not turn the page,
and you you will witness pure kindness, tender lovin'
in God's name!

I can hear you callin'
Baby heed this warnin'
It's not too late for us!
