Track Name: Blast
Right hand of a patron saint
Always talkin out both sides of your mouth
Toe the line of love and hate
Hot air been spewing like a cloud
No one loves you like yourself
No matter who or when, that's clear
Pumping blood through my veins
Gonna strain my throat until it tears

Your gonna know what's in my heart
And what I mean

Getting tired of holding back
Every time you tell another lie
Lose a little respect for myself
When I testify, then apologize
Climb another social ladder
And leave the rungs covered in paint
Treat em like they never mattered?
Well I'm done with showing my restraint

You'll always know what's in heart
Because I'll wear it on my sleeve
You'll always know what's in heart
And I'll bleed

Cause I've been loaded
To explode and
Burn these bridges
We built between us
Stop time for an instant
Judge the fuse by time and distance
Blast! Yeah!
We're gonna burn our history
It's time I made you believe what's in my heart
Track Name: Caught Between the Man and Motor City
Well my number came up, but my uncle pulled some strings
the day my cousin shipped out i was deployed in washington
they call it the national guard, but damned if i know why
all we did was face down kids like us
kids who didn't want to die in vietnam

but come july of '67 everything changed
the anger on the street boiled over into outrage
never thought that i would wish i'd gone to 'nam
till i was heading down 12th st. with a rifle in my arm
marching, thinking


I'd rather be in saigon than motor city
better a hell half a world away then the one in my hometown
i'd rather be in saigon than motor city
rather be drawing fire than watching flames bring my city down


Who's right in our fight with charley
ain't really a concern of mine
but when the shits going down in my city
don't put me on the wrong side of the line


motor city
motor city is burning
and there ain't nothing
ain't nothing that i can do
Track Name: Defibrillator
the escalator bring that franchise coffee shop
up and in to view
for the first time in a long ass time
i bring up memories of you

she says she's singing the songs of tomorrow
but I'm dreaming of summer and watching my garden growing
and i couldn't tell you what was said next
cause i was already thinking about...

well, i'll tell ya

i'm lost in that place between memory and dream
drawing on all i got left just trying to hide the seams
and i'm caught in that place between
apathy and enlightenment, complacency and contentment
trying to find my way home

she says she's singing the songs of tomorrow
but I'm dreaming of summer and watching my garden growing
and i couldn't tell you what was said next
cause i was already thinking about...

thinking 'bout highway miles

she says she's singing the songs of tomorrow
but I'm dreaming of summer and watching my garden growing
and i couldn't tell you what was said next
cause i was already wide awake here
