There is no road to possibility
There is nowhere to what we can achieve
So I'll be the fool that still believes
We can make a difference in this world
Chasing our dreams
Never say it's over when you're down
Don't ever surrender
If they throw you to the ground
Just pick yourself back up
Fight for what you want
Life is a struggle
Only the strongest will survive
So keep your head up high
As long as you're alive
There is no road to possibility
There is nowhere to what we can achieve
So I'll be the fool that still believes
We can make a difference in this world
Chasing our dreams
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

I remember the good old days
Stayed up all night getting crazed
Then the money was not so good
But we still did the best we could
Ooh baby, that's hard to change
I can't tell them how to feel
Some get stoned, some get strange
But sooner or later, it all gets real
Walk on, walk on
Walk on, walk on
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Strange days have found us
And through their strange hours
We linger alone
Bodies confused
Memories misused
As we run from the day
To a strange night of stone
Dodging lions and a-wasting time
In memory of ChiefScott

Nobody told me there'd be days like these
Strange days indeed -- most peculiar, mama

I ain't got no money, I ain't got no sense
Headed down to Nashville, just to say I went
They checked me at the border but I left my guns at home
I don't want no trouble, man, just came to sing my songs
Well, I don't want no trouble, man, but trouble's what I found
Guess I'm hell-bent and Nashville bound
Somewhere in Kentucky, stopped for one or two
Some Redneck started talkin' trash 'bout my hair and my tattoo
Tried to do the right thing but I busted my left hand
Sheriff and a 45 threw me in the county can
Well, I don't want no trouble, man, but trouble's what I found
Guess I'm hell-bent and Nashville bound
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Black as night, faster than a shadow
Crimson flare from a raging sun
An exhibition, of sheer precision
Yet no one knows from where he comes
Fools! self destruct cannot take that crown
Dreams! crash one by one to the ground
Hell bent, hell bent for leather
Hell bent, hell bent for leather
Dodging lions and a-wasting time

I take you where you want to go
I give you all you need to know
I drag you down, I use you up
Mr. self destruct
You let me do this to you
I am the needle in your vein
I am the high you can't sustain
I am the pusher, I'm a whore
I am the need you have for more
I am the bullet in the gun
I am the truth from which you run
I am the silencing machine
I am the end of all your dreams
I take you where you want to go
I give you all you need to know
I drag you down, I use you up
Mr. self destruct
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /

I get up around seven
Get outta bed around nine
And I don't worry about nothin' no
'Cause worryin's a waste of my, time
The show usually starts around seven
We go on stage at nine
Get on the bus at eleven
Sippin' a drink and feelin' fine
We been dancin' with
Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't' leave me alone
No, no, no
He won't leave me alone

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liars chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

^ great song rich ^
The Johnny Cash version breaks my heart


Love hurts, love scars
Love wounds and marks
Any heart
Not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud
Holds a lot of rain
Love hurts
Ooh, ooh, love hurts
Dodging lions and a-wasting time

Cash makes the song breathe for sure


I searched the backstreet barrooms
And every cheap hotel
Asking for my baby; they all knew her well
Well, they said, "She's out there working
For the wages of her sin
And if you want to find your baby,
Baby, Look for Sugar Man."
Well, tonight I found her
On the sorry side of town
Lying cold upon the bed
Where she had laid her body down
I picked up the needle that had fallen from her hand
And stuck it through the money she had made for Sugar Man
There are shadows on the sidewalks
Of the city streets at night
And the alleyways and ugly things
Are hidden from the light
But the sun's gonna shine tomorrow
On some dirty garbage cans
And a custom tailored lady-killer
They called Sugar Man
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

A ten year old girl on a street corner
Sticking needles in her arm
She died in the dirt of an alleyway
Her mother said she had no chance, no chance!
Heart breaker, heart breaker
She stuck the pins right in her heart
Heart breaker, pain maker
Stole the love right out of you heart

The police in New York City
They chased a boy right through the park
And in a case of mistaken identity
The put a bullet through his heart
Heart breakers with your forty four
I want to tear your world apart
You heart breaker with your forty four
I want to tear your world a part

I caught you knockin' at my cellar door
I love you, baby, can I have some more?
Ooh, ooh, the damage done
I hit the city and I lost my band
I watched the needle take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done
I sing the song, because I love the man
I know that some of you don't understand
Milk-blood to keep from running out
I've seen the needle and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's like a settin' sun
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

I've been feeling so sick inside
Got to get better, Lord, before I die
Some of the doctors couldn't help my head, they said
You'd better quit, son, before you're dead
Don't mess with the needle, or the spoon
Take a trip yeah, to the moon
It'll take you away
Lord, they gon' bury you boy
Was the needle and the spoon

Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Now I want to understand
I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can
Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long?

The scream of the ambulance is sounding in my ears
Tell me, sister Morphine, how long have I been lying here?
What am I doing in this place?
Why does the doctor have no face?

A hot summer night, fell like a net
I've gotta find my baby yet
I need you, to soothe my head
And turn my blue heart to red
Doctor Doctor, gimme the news
I got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I got a bad case of lovin' you
