Track Name: Slow Down
She struggles to find relief, for this air that she breaths is progressively getting thicker with each hostility.
The kettle it heats up you see, and as it comes to its peak: It shoots off a stream of steam that's 200 degrees.
The youngin' absorbs and observes, and as the fury occurs furry occurs, you can never be more careful with the choice of words soo...

Slow down, for there are purer souls around and you don't want them lost and bound by violence.
Go down to your heart where love is found, let your mind become unwound and silent.

He sees every discrepancy in this apartment they lease; he says he's trying to keep it tidy as he feeds his disease.
She denies it's disorderly, continues discourse with ease. He acts compulsively moving trinkets, she impulsively screams.
The youngster sits passively by, and you can see in eyes see in his eyes, that he is patiently waiting for a solution to rise

Slow down, for there are purer souls around and you don't want them lost and bound by violence.
Go down to your heart where love is found, let your mind become unwound and silent.
Track Name: Don't Go
Don't go I will miss you so, he said
" Follow my voice it will lead you home
I'll be where the sun does shine
so just follow me there if you'd be so kind"

When you're here life is passing me slow
I got to warn you that I know I'd be a wreck on my own
Now she said " Oh honey the truth be it know
I got a ticket and now with it our seed has been sewn
But this never could change
sure our lives are rearranged and the distance is strange
But it's the challenge we face
It's not our love I'm worried of just the time and it's pace."

Don't go I will miss you so, he said
"Follow my voice it will lead you home
I'll be where the sun does shine
so just follow me there if you'd be so kind"

Just leave a trace that the place you call home is my side,
so I can daydream for a while feel the warmth of your smile.
If I'd know when you go later we'd be the same
it'd put an ease on my brain, help to dull all the pain.
I'll refrain from complaints and be chaste like a saint
still at the thought of your girl my head becomes faint
And I'll wait if you say at the end of the day
that I'm the one you're thinking of so I can predict our fate.

Don't go I will miss you so, he said
"Follow my voice it will lead you home
I'll be where the sun does shine
so just follow me there if you'd be so kind"

Before you go my love I wanted to say
that if you could call me your home we'd never stray
But I know that you have to go, I'm counting the days.
But if you get lost, I'll show you the way.

Don't go I will miss you so, he said
"Follow my voice it will lead you home
I'll be where the sun does shine
so just follow me there if you'd be so kind"
Track Name: Officer Down
He don't see the answers in a loaded magazine
Hardly solve a problem if he'd choose to intervene
Each day is spent with no intent of harm at all he's sent to make the dough
Wakes up in the morning dressed in uniform and cap
Holster on the waist with mace and handcuffs in the back
Protect and serve, well that's absurd. It's all a blur of traffic stops and lights.

A flash of light illuminates it all, Officer down, Officer down down down.
A night he wished he'd never seen at all, head spinning round, head spinning round
Too late to fold, he's growing old with no purpose found
His partner felt cold, they were both told danger's not around here
Officer down, Officer down down down
Head spinning round, head spinning round round round

Lost his friend and partner, his suburban badge and gun
Joined the city ranks and gained his first and only son
Perspectives change, some stay the same, guns still to blame, new purpose gained in life.
Still don't see the answer in a loaded magazine
Now he makes a difference, tries to keep the city clean
trades traffic stops for murder plots, it helps a lot to know he's doing good.

A flash of light illuminates it all, Officer down, Officer down down down.
A night he wished he'd never seen at all, head spinning round, head spinning round
Too late to fold, he's growing old with new purpose found
Junior's growing old, he makes sure he's told danger won't be found here.
Officer down, Officer down down down
Head spinning round, head spinning round round round
Track Name: Radioactive
Radioactive: that's how it feels.
Everything turns to ashes, this much I know is real.
But if you think this life is but a joke
Join the other useless morbid folk
Before you catch a little bit of that radiation.

Wake up in the morning, now I wanna get high,
I've been thinking 'bout my brother so I pray to the sky.
Been feeling alright, dealing alright,
feeling all this weight upon my shoulder crush down on me like a boulder.
Getting older and bolder starting to smolder from the heat
While I'm calloused with malice bless the ground beneath my feet
It's not hard to be discrete in this jungle made of concrete
while all these movers and shaker they all have an end to meet

Radioactive: that's how it feels.
Everything turns to ashes, this much I know is real.
But if you think this life is but a joke
Join the other useless morbid folk
Before you catch a little bit of that radiation.

Sitting by a fire as energy burns, we all yearn for a desire waiting by our turn
If you live, then you learn. When you love, there's concern.
For every fleeting joyful moment there's another that's stern.
I've learned a lot in this life that I'm living.
Like never let the love you take exceed the love that you're giving.
Put yourself in their position, never judge before you listen and always keep your head up all despite of what we're missing.

Radioactive: that's how it feels.
Everything turns to ashes, this much I know is real.
But if you think this life is but a joke
Join the other useless morbid folk
Before you catch a little bit of that radiation.

Before I go (I try not to impose) I've learned a bit of wisdom and well this is how it goes
Love life and live while it lasts before it breaks down like a isotope and seeps into the past
For most of us it seems to go fast but what do affects the future history's a forecast.
If you can see the contrast between the now and the past: we can build a better future, save the world that we have
Wooah OoWoah ooWoah Oowoah, Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
