Album:  INVISIBLE CHAINS  
 
INVISIBLE CHAINS    
THE LITTLE WAYS THAT YOU CARRY ON
I THINK OF YOU LIKE A SETTING SUN
YOU HUNG AROUND ME & HAD SOME FUN
THEN YOU GOT SCARED & YOU HAD TO RUN
 
NOW YOU’RE GONE – IT’S A SHAME
I CAN’T ESCAPE THESE INVISIBLE CHAINS – INVISIBLE CHAINS
 
SAVE MY LIFE IT’S A STONE COLD SIN
YOU PUSH ME OUT   THEN YOU PULL ME IN
YOU SAY IT’S OVER WHILE YOU’RE CLOSING IN
TO END IT ALL WHEN WE JUST BEGIN
 [CHORUS]  -  [SOLO]
 
YOU LIED TO ME BUT YOU   JUST CAN’T SEE
YOU’D RATHER SAY THAT YOU   SET ME FREE
YOUR EMPTY HEART FINDS IT HARD TO BELIEVE
YOU NEVER SAY WHAT YOU REALLY MEAN
[CHORUS] 
 INVISIBLE CHAINS… INVISIBLE CHAINS… 
 
WHO’S CHASIN' WHO     
THERE’S 2 SIDES TO EVERY SITUATION
EVERYWHERE I TURN CAN’T FIND A SIGN
AND HALF THE TIME I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M CHASIN’
AND MY LIFE PLAYS OUT LIKE IT JUST ISN’T MINE
 
I’M SERCHING FOR A CLUE - I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
DO YOU CHASE ME - OR DO I CHASE YOU 
DO I CHASE YOU…
 
SIMPLE WORDS ARE FILLING EMPTY PAGES
WHEN THINGS GET TOO TOUGH I WALK THE LINE
WHEN MY LUCK RUNS OUT I CALL IN A FEW FAVORS
AND WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT THE STARS WON’T SHINE
 [CHORUS]  -  [SOLO]
 
 ALL ALONG I CAN’T SEE WHAT I’M FACING
BY THE TIME I DOUBLE-BACK I’M OUT OF TIME
AND ALL THAT BITTER LOVE I’VE BEEN TASTING
SOONER OR LATER IS BOUND TO BLOW MY MIND
[CHORUS] 
WHO’S CHASING WHO…WHOS CHASING WHO
 
10 SHOT AUTOMATIC  
MY BABY’S ANGRY & SHE GOT A GUN
KNOW’S I BEEN OUT HAVIN’ SOME FUN
SHE DON’T WANT NO EXCUSES - I DON’T WANT NO STATIC
SHE GOT A 10 SHOT AUTOMATIC
 
WAVIN’ THAT PISTOL & SHE’S MAD DOG MAD
SCREAMIN’ LIKE A SIREN I BEEN BAD BAD BAD
CAN’T CALM HER DOWN – SHES JUST GONE MANIC
SHE GOT A 10 SHOT AUTOMATIC
 
I SAY IM SORRY SHE KEEPS CALLIN’ ME A LIAR
POINTIN’ THAT PISTOL AT ME - HER VOICE KEEPS GETTING HIGHER
I’M SHAKIN’ LIKE A WET DOG - TRYIN’ NOT TO PANIC
SHE GOT A 10 SHOT AUTOMATIC
                                                                                          [BRIDGE]
I’M LOOKIN’ UP TO HEAVEN DOWN THE BARREL OF A GUN
WONDER IF TOMORROW I WILL EVER SEE THE SUN
IF SHE PULLS THE TRIGGER - I WILL SINK LIKE THE TITANIC
SHE GOT A 10 SHOT AUTOMATIC
 
YOU MIGHT HAVE MY NUMBER      
FACES THEY WILL FOLLOW
THRU MY LIFES PAST GLORY
SHOWING UP TOMORROW
TELLING MY LIFE STORY
TIME WAS ON OUR SIDE THEN & WE ALWAYS HUNG AROUND
YOU MIGHT HAVE MY #    BUT YOU’LL NEVER FIND ME NOW
 
COMING BACK AINT EASY
WHEN YOU’VE DANGLED FROM A STRING
WHEN YOU TRADE YOUR LOVE FOR MONEY
YOU MUST GIVE UP EVERYTHING
[CHORUS]
 
NOTHING EVER SEEMS TO WORK OUT LIKE IT’S PLANNED
IN PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS YOU MIGHT END UP EMPTY HANDED   
 
I COULD NEVER GO HOME
CAUSE HOME AINT WHERE MY HEART IS
CAPTURING SWEET ROMANCE
DON’T FEEL NOTHING LIKE THIS
[CHORUS]
 
CITY OF CRIME     
COBBLE STONE STREETS -ARE TOUGH ON MY FEET
YET UNDER THE SHEETS -IT ALL SEEMS JUST FINE
 
MY LIFES ON THE LINE – I RUN OUT OF TIME
I CAN’T FALL IN LOVE IN THIS CITY OF CRIME(2x) – OH WHY
 
GUN SHOTS IN MY HEAD -LEANING OVER THE BED
WALLS PUMPED FULL OF LEAD -IT MUST BE A SIGN
[CHORUS]  
 
THE GUNS & THE DRUGS -THE INNOCENT THUGS
IT’S FISTS AGAINST HUGS -THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND
 [SOLO]
 
ON STREETS FULL OF PAIN -I RIDE ON THE TRAIN
IT SEEMS SO INSANE -THAT THE SUN WILL STILL SHINE
[CHORUS] 
 
 
(She Cried) ALL THE WAY TO MEMPHIS   
TEARS & FALSE PROMISES
HALF HEARTED COMPROMISES
GIVE & TAKE & YOU END UP WITH A PACK OF LIES
BACKED UP-TIED DOWN-ANYTHING TO SET YOU FREE
ALL YOU END UP WITH IS THE SMOKE OF BURNING MEMORIES
 
SHE CRIED ALL THE WAY TO MEMPHIS (3x) TENNESSEE…
 
FEELINGS TOOK A LANDSLIDE BURNIN’ LIKE A HOUSE FIRE
DRAW THE LINE - AFTER LISTENING TO FOOLS & LIARS
BAD TURNED TO WORSE - LIFE TAKES A TURN
YOU GOTTA LIVE IT - IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO LEARN
 [CHORUS]     -   [SOLO]
 
TEARS & FALSE PROMISES
HALF HEARTED COMPROMISES
GIVE & TAKE & YOU END UP WITH A PACK OF LIES
[CHORUS]    
 
11 ROSES      
THEY NEVER KNEW WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER
AND LEFT HIM LYING THERE ALONE
RED PETALS FALL BETWEEN HER FINGERS
SHE KNOWS HE’S NEVER COMIN’ HOME
 
11 ROSES IN HER HAND
11 ROSES ONE LOST MAN
11 ROSES SHE’LL NEVER SEE AGAIN
11 ROSES IN HER HAND
 
AND IN HER HEART HIS MEMORY LINGERS
NOW SHE’LL JUST DO THE BEST SHE CAN
WHY HIS YOUNG SON HE JUST CAN’T FIGURE
ONE DAY I GUESS HE’LL UNDERSTAND
[CHORUS] -  [SOLO] - [CHORUS]
11 ROSES…11 ROSES…11 ROSES IN HER HAND
 
DON’T WORRY 'BOUT ME                                        
WOKE UP WITH BURNING MEMORIES OF THOSE CHILDHOOD DREAMS
THEY FOLLOWED ME AROUND THEN I DROWNED THEM IN THE DEEP BLUE SEA
I KNOW-I KNOW THEY’RE NEVER GONNA LET ME BE
SO BABY DON’T YOU WORRY – BABY DON’T YOU WORRY BOUT ME
 
I HAVE WALKED THRU THE FIRE & REALIZED NOTHIN IS FREE
NO MAGIC MEDICINE IS GONNA CLEAR MY EYES TO SEE
DON’T DROP A TEAR INTO A YOUR CUP OF GREEN TEA
AND BABY DON’T YOU WORRY – BABY DON’T YOU WORRY BOUT ME
 
  I GOT ALONG LIKE NOTHING WENT WRONG
  FINALLY GONNA GET ME SOME SLEEP
  WE HUNG ON TO EACH OTHER JUST A LITTLE TOO LONG
  NOW IM STANDING ON MY OWN 2 FEET
[SOLO]
 
I BEEN FLIPPED UPSIDE DOWN - MY FEELINGS ENDED UP BITTER SWEET
AND I SURVIVED 12 ROUNDS & I KINDA FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE
THINK OF ME & SMILE & REMEMBER HOW IT USED TO BE
BABY DON’T YOU WORRY – BABY DON’T YOU WORRY BOUT ME (repeat)
 
DOGGIN’ ME                                 
SAY THAT YOU DON’T LOVE ME BABY
AND I WILL LEAVE THIS TOWN (2x)
I’M TIRED OF YOU DOGGIN ME & MESSIN ME AROUND
 
SNEAKIN OUT THE BACKDOOR
AND TREATIN ME LIKE A CLOWN  (2x)
I’M TIRED OF YOU DOGGIN ME & MESSIN ME AROUND
 
[YOU’RE DOGGIN ME]
TIRED OF YOU DOGGIN ME & MESSIN ME AROUND
 
YOU GOT ME WALKIN ON A SHORT LEASH
 AND TREATIN ME LIKE A HOUND (2x)
I’M TIRED OF YOU DOGGIN ME & MESSIN ME AROUND

THEN JUMP INTO MY CAR & DRIVE ON
OUTTA TOWN…

EVIL JUNK                                      
I AM A SLAVE TO MY ADDICTION
I WILL SINK INTO THE WEST LIKE A SETTING SUN
LIE TO MYSELF SAY I CAN BEAT IT
 
THIS IS SOME EVIL JUNK
 
MY HANDS THEY SHAKE MY LIPS THEY TREMBLE
IM SURE TO BURN OUT LIKE A SHOOTING STAR
CAN’T NAVIGATE THRU THIS NASTY WEATHER
THIS IS SOME EVIL JUNK
 
   IT MIGHT WASTE AWAY MY BODY
   IT MIGHT STEAL MY BROKEN HEART
   IT MIGHT NEVER SAY IM SORRY
   BUT DON’T EVER TAKE MY PRECIOUS JUNK 
 [SOLO]
 
STONE COLD EYES  - BLACKED OUT SENSES
INSIDE IM AS WARM AS THE RISING SUN
BEFORE LONG I’LL BE BEGGIN FOR MERCY
THIS IS SOME EVIL JUNK 
 
REPEAT 1ST VERSE  -  THIS IS SOME EVIL JUNK (repeat)
 
10 SHOT AUTOMATIC  Feat. SX
[ Rap Lyrics by Patrick Brown (SX) ]
Bridge Rap:
YEAH CLICK CLICK BANG I CAN’T EVEN HANG
GOTTA WORRY ‘BOUT MY SEXY LITTLE THING
OUT ON THE TOWN WITH THE BOYS AS THE DRINKS FLOW
I THINK I SHOULD BE HOME LOCKED & LOADED
 
SO WHERE I GO  WHERE I GO REALLY I DON’T EVEN KNOW
AT SOME POINT I GOTTA CONFRONT HER (hey)
RIGHT NOW SHE’S GOT ME RUNNIN’ SCARED
RUNNIN’ ‘ROUND TOWN GO HOME I DON’T DARE
 
FOR RICHER FOR POORER FOR GREATER OR LESSER
NOBODY TOLD ME THERE’D BE THAT MUCH PRESSURE
RIGHT NOW THE VERDICT IS OUT
I GOT 10 SHOTS COMIN’ AND SHE’S TWO CLICKS OUT
 
SO YOU SEE WHY I’M UP IN A PANIC
RUNNIN’ ROUND THE TOWN AS MY GIRL GOES MANIC
TRYIN’ TO  FIGURE OUT   TRYIN’ TO  FIGURE OUT  
WHERE SHE GOT THE 10 SHOT AUTOMATIC…
