Track Name: Faces In The Street
They lie, the men who tell us for reasons of their own,
That want is here a stranger, and that misery’s unknown;
For where the nearest suburb and the city proper meet
My window-sill is level with the faces in the street

And cause I have to sorrow, in a land so young and fair,
To see upon those faces stamped the marks of Want and Care;
I look in vain for traces of the fresh and fair and sweet
In sallow, sunken faces that are drifting through the street
Drifting by, drifting by,
To the beat of hungry feet;
While I sorrow for the owners of the faces in the street.

In hours before the dawning dims the starlight in the sky
The wan and weary faces first begin to trickle by,
Increasing as the moments hurry on with morning feet,
Till like a pallid river flow the faces in the street
Drifting by, drifting by, To the beat of hurried feet
Ah! I sorrow for the owners of those faces in the street.

And when the hours on lagging feet have slowly dragged away,
And sickly yellow gaslights rise to mock the going day,
Then flowing past my window like a tide in its retreat,
Again I see the pallid stream of faces in the street
Drifting by, drifting by,
To the beat of tired feet,
I can sorrow for the owners of those faces in the street.
Track Name: Guilty Beast
A man has his moment, A dog has his day,
But time has a habit, Of fading away,
As sure as the sun, Will rise in the east,
Man is the only, Guilty beast,

A moment’s a lifetime, All things must pass,
But grapes become wine, And sand becomes glass,
The mouths of the few, On the many will feast,
Man is the only, Guilty beast,

Forests will dry out, Seas they may rise,
Truth is a feeling, Lies are just lies,
Of all that I know, There is one truth at least,
Man is the only, Guilty beast,

Some live on through their children, Some live on through their lies,
But everyone dies, everyone dies, everyone dies,

Nothing is ever, Quite as it seems,
One man’s reality, Another man’s dream,
Some live on sugar, Some get by without yeast,
Man is the only, Guilty beast,
Track Name: Long Time Comin'
Long time coming, now it’s gone,
Long time coming, finding out by going wrong,
But now we’re moving on,

Long time coming, left behind,
Long time coming, keep a lesson learned in mind,
Lord knows that killin time,
Oh it’s such a heavy crime,

Livin in a fishbowl, trying to find my way around,
I feel like I’ve been here before,
But then again it seems something has changed,

Such a rocky road I’m travelling,
Such a heavy load I’m carrying,
Now it seems I just can’t see the road before me,

Long time coming, gone insane,
Long time coming, trying to remember my name,
Thinking it’s a crying shame,
But laughin about it just the same,

Such a rocky road I’m travelling,
Such a heavy load I’m carrying,
Now it seems I just can’t see the road before me,
Track Name: Josephine
Josephine,
I know I just can’t imagine what it’s like where you’ve been,
Josephine,
When you lie in bed at night does it haunt you in your dreams?
Josephine,
I can’t say that there’s a reason I can’t tell you what it means,
Josephine,
Understand I wish you’d never seen the sights that you’ve seen,

And I hope there comes a time,
When I can really get to know you,
And you can help me try to understand,
So when you feel you can,
Just reach out and take me by the hand,

Josephine,
There’s the good and bad in life but there’s a whole lot in between,
Let’s go and see it Josephine,

And I hope there comes a time,
When we can be a family,
And through it all together we will stand,
So when you feel you can,
I’ll be there to take you by the hand,

Josephine,
If I can make it more like how you wish life could have been,
Just come and tell me Josephine,
Track Name: Summer Rain
Summer rain,
Brings me back to life again,
Makes everything alright again,
Wash my blues away,

I’ll see you then,
Just like the time, remember when,
We let ourselves be born again,
On a brand new day,

There’s a story in the break of dawn,
And a new horizon every morn,
And everything goes back to from where it came,
And gets washed away by the,

Summer rain,
Brings me back to life again,
Makes everything alright again,
Wash my blues away,
