Stand down Olympus Stand down my good man You are not my master Stand down Olympus You shout out your lungs Stand down Olympus This is no longer fun Stand down Olympus I need you to hear Stand down Olympus Stop spreading your fear Stand down Olympus I found out your lies Stand down Olympus Stop spreading your doubt The time has come For you to be a man The time has come What you gonna read about? Harness your fears Stand down Olympus You are no longer a man Stand down Olympus You shall never take my land

Float 09:11
So cast me away like an old piece of wood And I hope that I will float across to land Maybe I’ll find a brand new shore Someone will take me by the hand She sits there a long time I've been waiting too For someone to stand or call I don’t know how long it’s been I am beginning to fall It’s been a long time wasting my life Getting caught up in this Help me out It gets so hard to speak When the smoke is in your lungs And your head has been pounding for days And you are just wasting some It get so hard to stop all these things I got a dream it will go somewhere It takes me so long Only takes me so far Because I forget these days It’s been a long time wasting my life Getting caught up in this It’s been a long time wasting my days Getting caught up in this Help me out I’m praying for rain Oh I wish it could be Because my soul has been burning for days I just need a drop to quench all I want And I promise it will be okay It’s just another castaway On this life raft hoping to float And I am praying someone will Just take me away It’s been a long time wasting my days Getting caught up in this It’s been a long time wasting my life Getting caught up in this Help me out

This is the year This is the heartbeat This is the kind of life You are clawing at the dog's feet You got a witness You are going to fall back down I do not understand you We are talking about love here This is the year I call it ’55 The king is rising and it’s good to be alive As I am climbing in Don’t give me reasons Don’t you give me no doubts Don’t go the time in my life to help you out Don’t want to stand here all alone My leg is shaking as the young girls hearts are breaking This is the year I call it ’55 The king is rising and it’s good to be alive As I am climbing in No one needs to know Who is in charge of it all Just an excuse to be Racking all the money in This is the year I call it ’55 The king is rising and it’s good to be alive As I am climbing into your back seat

Lottery Life 08:28
I've been waiting for just the right night Count my blessings achieving such great highs But it doesn’t really matter this will never last You might as well wish upon every star tonight You’ve been holding onto your lucky rabbit's foot Your four leaf clover and all your comic books But you would trade it all in for a chance at this To collect a fate or scratch that itch Crack those shells and lay it on black tonight Spend your last dollar on a chance of hope Spin the wheel, ride the carousel tonight Just cover your eyes But I don’t want it I just want something real Just a chance at love not this spinning wheel Because my life may be Just the lottery that you seek Crack those shells and lay it on black tonight Spend your last dollar on a chance of hope Spin the wheel, ride the carousel tonight Just cover your eyes

Home 06:36
It is all the same you don’t you care Maybe it’s the same to you and I don’t care Because it is the type of game I am playing It’s all the same to us don’t you say All I wanted to say to you This is the type of thing that makes me feel like home It’s the kind of day you have been saving The kind of day you know you have been had Because I know most of you walk on the water You have been away so long all these days All I wanted to say to you You are type of thing that makes me feel like home I won’t coin no phase and I won’t write no book I don’t got no love because I ain’t got no hook Now I am afraid to be This broken record again All I wanted to say to you It’s the type of thing that makes me feel All I wanted to say to you You’re type of friends that make me feel like home I learned to follow so long ago I didn’t want to stay because I didn’t want to go I learned to stand up so long ago It’s kind, the wrong kind of pride All I wanted to say to you You’re type of friends that make me feel All I wanted to say to you This is type of thing that makes me feel like home
