Track Name: Everything's Alright
Everything’s Alright

I walked my daughter to the corner store
To get her that candy that she adores
Walking down the street on a warm summer’s day
Me and my little girl, everything’s okay

Hey, hey it’s alright
Everything’s okay, it’s alright
So, grab your girl and hold her tight
Cause everything’s okay tonight, it’s alright

I saw a guy in his front yard polishing his bike
You know he’s gonna’ go out, he’s gonna’ rock to tonight
People passing by in cars they got their radios on
Out of them speakers I hear that new hit song

Hey, hey it’s alright
Everything’s okay, it’s alright
So, grab your girl and hold her tight
Cause everything’s okay tonight, it’s alright

I ain’t thinking about the future
I ain’t thinking about the past
There’s just this moment
And I want to make it last

But life is short and it ain’t always sweet
Me and my little girl walking down the street

I haven’t picked up a paper, I haven’t watched the news
I haven’t paid any attention to my old blues
I’m just walking down the street with my little girl
There ain’t nothing wrong in this whole damn world

Hey, hey it’s alright
Everything’s okay, it’s alright
So, grab your girl and hold her tight
Cause everything’s okay tonight, it’s alrigh
Track Name: Under The Gun
Under The Gun

I could tell you my story
But it’d be an excuse
I can take responsibility
I can face the truth

But I hate myself for
For what I’ve done
And I’m reminded of it everyday living

Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun

I try to stay busy
I write letters and I read
It never mattered much to me on the outside
But now it means everything to me

In the words I try to hide but
I can’t run
There’s no transcending when you’re living

Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun

This ain’t no way
This ain’t no way to live

Sometimes I think about getting married
And settling down
You know, making something of my life
If I ever get out

But I have nightmares too man
Of what I may become
Sometimes I worry that I’m better off living

Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun

Under the gun
Under the gun
Under the gun
Track Name: California Angel
California Angel

I’ve heard the stories
I’ve seen the scars
What was it like
Growing up behind bars

They gave you life
They beat you to death
They never let you
Catch your breath

My little angel
California angel
My little angel
My California angel

They held you down
They kept you back
How did you ever
Find your track

Now all these people talk
But they don’t have a clue
About the things you’ve seen
And lived through

My little angel
California angel
My little angel
My California angel

Your body started changing
They hated you more
How did you ever become
The woman you are

They filled you with horror
They taught you pain
You thought little bitch
Was your name

You keep your chin up
But the past is always right there
A ringing telephone
It fills you with fear

They shattered your heart
They scattered it at sea
But you still found
A piece for me

My little angel
My little angel
California angel

My little angel
My California angel
You’re my little angel
Track Name: Jackson Township
Jackson Township

The rain falls hard on Jackson Township
The wind blows through, straight down Lincoln Avenue
The traffic light swings in Jackson Township
From red to green while I am blue

The sky’s been gray for six long days
Six long days, I haven’t seen the sun
I haven’t felt its rays in Jackson Township
That’s nothing new in this borough

Folks ‘round here don’t have much to say
The sky’s been gray for forever and a day
The streets they flood, in Jackson Township
Like a river of mud down Lincoln Avenue
