Track Name: Born Free
Born Free

Well I’m the kind of guy you see
I’ll stay away from you, you stay away from me
Cause I take care of myself and my family
But it seems I cant just live my life
There’s always someone who tries to come and pry in
Well that aint gonna fly with me

Cause I’m born free
I don’t need you to tell me how to be
I don’t want a hand, I got two feet
Born free
No I don’t need you, because I got me
Get out of my way cause I’m born free

I’m so sick of the whining today
There ain’t no one but you to blame for your mistakes
Hey buddy, that's not my price to pay
Cause when I wave the flag I wave it for the right
To make what I can out of my own life
I don’t like this mentality we got today

Cause I’m born free
I don’t need you to tell me how to be
I don’t want a hand, I got two feet
Born free
No I don’t need you, because I got me
Get out of my way cause I’m born free

Well they can try and tell me I’m wrong
But there's alot of us still carrying on
Our way of life the way it was meant to be
We work hard for what we have earned
And we wont a dime that we don’t deserve
We take pride in ourselves and our country

Cause I’m born free
I don’t need you to tell me how to be
I don’t want a hand, I got two feet
Born free
No I don’t need you, because I got me
Get out of my way cause I’m born free
Stay out of my way cause I’m born free
Thats the American way we’re all born free
Track Name: My Living Cell
My Living Cell

I’ve been in here for almost 20 years
Counting down the days, and counting all the tears
But this cell I’m in is all I’ve really known
And I’ve almost forgotten where I call my home

These bars and chains they try and shackle me
Sometimes I think I’ll never be set free
But the coldness that you see within my eyes
I’m gonna leave in here, once I can step outside

Lord free me from this lonely prison cell
Help me escape my own made living hell
Would You guide me in the dark tonight
Cause I’m running for my life
And if those shots ring out I’m ready to die

So I’m planning my escape from all this pain
I’ve got nothing to lose, and everything to gain
And I don’t know if I’ll make it out alive
But living in here just aint no kind of life

Lord free me from this lonely prison cell
Help me escape my own made living hell
Would You guide me in the dark tonight
Cause I’m running for my life
And if those shots ring out I’m ready to die

When they come around to count the cells tonight
I’ll be hiding in the shadows with my homemade knife
And if the sirens go, I swear I wont look back
If I make it past that wall I’ll be gone fast

Lord free me from this lonely prison cell
Help me escape my own made living hell
Would You guide me in the dark tonight
Cause I’m running for my life
And if those shots ring out I’m ready to die
If I don’t make it out, I’ve already died
Track Name: The Stand Up Kind
The Stand Up Kind

He looks you in the eye when he talks to you
He don’t tell no lies, he speaks the truth
When he gives his word, best believe he’s gonna keep it
Yea he’s the stand up kind and he don’t believe in quit

He loves his woman, no he wont ever stray
He’s the kind of man thats hard to find today
When he takes your hand, you know he wants your best
Yea he’s the stand up kind, he’s a cut above the rest

He’s a stand up man
Does the best he can
Got strength and pride
He’s the stand up kind

He rolls up his sleeves when it’s time to fight
He wont ever back down, if he knows he’s right
When the time comes, you always know he’s there for you
Yea he’s the stand up kind, the one you turn to

He’s a stand up man
Does the best he can
Got strength and pride
He’s the stand up kind

He always works hard and he don’t complain
He struggles on, but never casts the blame
When things get tough, you’ll see what I’m talking about
Yea he’s the stand up kind, in himself hell never doubt

He’s a stand up man
Does the best he can
Got strength and pride
He’s the stand up kind
Track Name: Runaway Heart
Runaway Heart

You’re always running, can’t face the facts
That the love we shared, could never last
Well now I know, it was over from the start
Cause you would not give me your runaway heart

Your faithless heart could never break
You’re never willing to put it at stake
So it’s the fool in me, that has to pay
When I gave my heart, and yours just ran away

I tried my best to change your mind
But all you did was end up changing mine
From looking back, I wasn’t all that smart
You went and gave me a runaway heart
Runaway heart

Now it’s your turn, your turn to feel
The warmth of a heart, that’s now cold as steel
So if you find me again, I won’t stay
You’ll give you heart, but mine has runaway

Runaway heart
Can’t catch your runaway heart
Can’t catch my runaway heart
Track Name: Go It Alone
Go It Alone

Set off in the dark tonight
I’m gonna try and find some peace of mind
If there’s such a thing
I got a pistol and God with me
Thats all I’m gonna need
No I don’t want you to come along

I walk this world alone
A friendly face will do you wrong
Trust in no man, he’ll shoot you in the back
Thats why I go it alone
Alone

No one one rides by my side
It’s my own neck if I live or if I die
This way I'll carry on
I find strength in solitude
Why the hell would I need you
No I can’t stand almost anyone

I walk this world alone
A friendly face will do you wrong
Trust in no man, he’ll shoot you in the back
Thats why I go it alone
Alone

This world aint fit for a weak man
On your own virtues only you can depend
The ones you think are by your side might leave you to die
Thats why I go it alone

I walk this world alone
A friendly face will do you wrong
Trust in no man, he’ll shoot you in the back
Thats why I go it alone
Alone
Track Name: Rowdy Rock n Roll
Rowdy Rock n Roll

My mama always showed me such a desperate concern
She didn’t like the music I wanted to learn
Oh no, no no
Daddy said well boy you better settle it down
That rock and roll aint for foolin around
Oh no, no no

Cause when that sound took ahold of me
It left me in a rough and reckless streak
And anti-social prone
I know I’m sold

I blame that...
Twangin hard banging
Rowdy rock and roll
Straight forward 3 chord
Rock and roll
Raw sound played loud
Rock and roll
Fighting and drinking
Rowdy rock and roll

Woke up on the floor in the county jail
Said sorry mamma how much is bail?
Oh no, no no
Daddy said son that music's made you too aggressive
This situation’s gonna teach you a lesson
No no, no no

Cause when I hear that music hit my brain
I don’t to care to throw it all away
Living wild out of control
I’m told

I blame that...
Twangin hard bangin
Rowdy rock and roll
Straight forward 3 chord
Rock and roll
Raw sound played loud
Rock and roll
Fighting and drinking
Rowdy rock and roll
