Track Name: And Sometimes Sad
I live wherever I land
Wherever I fall, I'm still in your hands

And it's brilliant, baby, brilliant
And sometimes sad.

I live wherever I land
Wherever I roam, baby that's where I am

And it's brilliant, baby, brilliant
And sometimes sad.
Track Name: Casualty of Love
I heard a news report of a journalist in Mosul who was describing what was happening outside his window. It was a scary and surreal description and I found myself thinking... "What if this happened here in San Antonio and my wife was on the other side of town and I couldn't get to her?" This song was born... from the empathy of what the people of Mosul must be going through.
lyrics
Casualty of Love:

V1
There's air strikes in the city
There's music in the air
There's smoke on the horizon
I'm too shell-shocked to care

CHORUS
There's fighting in the streets
Gun fire coming from above
No matter how I go down
I'll be a casualty of LOVE

V2
The sky outside my window
Has gone real blue
They've been digging up the trenches
And I cannot get to you

CHORUS
There's fighting in the streets
Gun fire coming from above
No matter how I go down
I'll be a casualty of LOVE
Track Name: True Identity
A part of you is stolen, you ran into the Soul Thief
You don't dance the way you want to
You gotta take back your energy
Will the world ever stop turning
To talk about Love?
Baby let me see, your true identity

I'm here with you... with an open heart & a warm hand
We made it out alive, surviving a crash land
Will the world ever stop turning
To talk about Love?
Baby let me see, your true identity

I thought I heard you calling...
I sank to the occasion
Loneliness came rushing in...
Like a heartbreak invasion
Will the world ever stop turning
To talk about Love?
Baby let me see, your true identity
Track Name: Armageddon Does The Job
It's all smoke and mirrors
It's all smiles and lies
It's all backroom deals
It's all ego and pride
Some people call them our leaders
I call them the mob
They know Armageddon
Gonna do the job

I used to know a woman
Down in Tennessee
She became a cancer
To her family
Damage attracts damage
The fuse attracts the bomb
She knows Armageddon
Gonna do the job

You go about your day
Doing what it is you do
Then you turn on the tv
Bad news washes over you
Profit over the people
Profit over the planet
The world's a spinning top
And you know Armageddon
Gonna do the job
I know Armageddon
Gonna do the job
WE know Armageddon
Gonna do the job


Inspired by Allen Ginsberg "Hum Bom!"
Track Name: Better
I don't know what I'd do without you
Probably just enough to get me through
I don't know what I'd wear
Or even if I'd comb my hair
I just know I'd be standing here alone

Chorus:
It's gonna get better, I really need it to
Better for me, better for you
It's gonna get better, I really need it to
Better for me, better for you

Ain't nothing to confess
Gonna make me love you any less
Call it devotion or something more
It won't keep the tide from the shore
I'm right here in front of you baby
I'm at your back
I'm by your side when the night turns black
And at your darkest hour
I will be your power
When you are weak, I am strong
I've been here all along

Chorus:
It's gonna get better, I really need it to
Better for me, better for you
It's gonna get better, I really need it to
Better for me, better for you
