Phantom Ride 05:16
By a rusty iron tank Where the maiden hair hangs And all of the wind up in the trees Is all that you hear Come on down Feel the heat All around you timbers crack There’s a storm rising All dusty and blue And the one that you love is in a void Of black Let go of the world And ride this train To the other side Phantom ride Chained to the grill of a moving train Time and space collide The eagle eye is on the ground The rodent at the sky Earth will quake And wheels will shake Tracks will buckle and crack A carpet bagger in a mohair suit Stops to tip his hat Let go of the world But always beware Of your pride Phantom ride From the gulf and down to desert sands Over mountains and divide When life is coming at you It’s like a phantom ride Let go of the world And ride this train To the other side Phantom ride Let go of the world But always beware Of your pride Phantom ride

I’m a self-made man I made myself do All of those things That I ought not do I’m a selfish man I thought you knew It’s shouted in halls And whispered in the pews I got my pick and spade I’m digging my own grave One foot in the gates And the other on the blade I’ve been torn down I’ve been humbled And the roads that I paved Have all washed away I have torn out All of your lessons These are confessions Of a self-made man I’m a fire brand All cinder and spark On the open sea Atop a burning ark It was the devils plan For a gambling man When the ace is marked And the dice are bad I’ve been torn down I’ve been humbled And the roads that I paved Have all washed away I have torn out All of your lessons These are confessions Of a self-made man These are confessions Of a self-made man

Open Window 04:56
Stand near an open window Lean a little closer Come to me Won’t you hear my whisper? Like a drunken waltz Or a promise made Like a shining light Or the smell of rain I…I am the wind When you can’t find the truth I take truth away If you just say my name Stand near an open window Lean a little closer Come to me Won’t you hear my whisper? I…I am the wind When you can’t find the truth I take truth away If you just say my name

All I want’s a melody To ride with me tonight The skies the limit for this fricasee And the lights are shining bright All aboard the scene is set For this journey to begin This life that Ive been in Is starting to wear pretty thin Cos all I really wanna do Is walk on the open road To walk a mile in your shoes To end where all the rivers flow The open road has called my name And I will soon be free Leave behind these empty dreams Kick this misery Some people say that there’s nothing to find} But I don’t wanna hear that at all Some people say that Im walking away But sometimes you got to walk to feel the fall. Cos all I really wanna do Is walk on the open road To walk a mile in your shoes To float to where the rivers flow Im travlin out to where the quiet is loud l jump from stone to stone Living life out of this ol bag Its stripped me back to the bone Livin life out of this ol bag Has stripped me back to the bone

Hold On 04:57
You stood by the alter A ring in your hand Watching the seconds role by You’re thinking and dreaming About the days of your life Wondering how times go by You stood by the flame tree With a fire in your heart Praying that good times might come But there’s still some darkness Left in this night There’s still some darkness to come Hold on Hold on… That fire is burning Your life to the ground But fuel is all you have for the flame When it is over, only ashes remain And you can put a price to the pain Then you can buy back in the game Hold on Hold on… This life can spin you round It’ll chew you up Then spit you out And no one can understand What you’re talking about You stand with your family With love in your heart Times that you could not foresee You’re thinking and dreaming about those times in your life Wondering how times go by And you know it going to be alright Hold on Hold on…

Johanna 04:55
Get it over with Speak your mind And all memories Will be revealed in time It seems I didn’t understand Well I thought I did But I was wrong You say it feels So good to leave To become someone unknown They never see you coming How were they to know? Johanna… I’m just a stranger Left inside a dream A burning cloud lights my day I’m alone but for your name So let me sing it one time Again Johanna… I’m alone but for your name So let me sing it one time Again Johanna…

Final Call 06:49
I cant stand that look on your face Your posing like you own the place When you know It aint like that Put yourself in regular shoes Your so scared cos you think that you’ll lose All you have But it aint like that Can you it see it coming to you Gonna feel it shoot through you Right now Walkin over hallowed ground Those crushing bones is the only sound That you hear And it aint so bad to you You’ve never found what you’re looking for Your standing outside beyond the bolted door And the cold Its eating you alive Can you see it coming for you Its gonna shoot through you You know The final chip is falling Soon enough you’ll be calling Again

Going down a lonesome road The wind begins to howl The stars have all gone to bed Ain’t no friend around You came from another world Just out of view When I set out I always wanted To find a place like that too But no two hearts can be the same It’s just a chance you choose When you play the wheel of love You may find that you wake up One day with the lost lover blues Here upon my sorrow Beneath the sky I lost my love gambling It’s just like the roll of the dice But no two hearts can be the same It’s just a chance you choose When you play the wheel of love You may find that you wake up One day with the lost lover blues
