Track Name: Tell Me Lies
Come with me down to the sea,
I will show you what I’ve seen
Buried neath’ the leaves of green,
Lie the bones of someone’s dream
They built a room around a tree
They had a view that looked out on the waves

They had a love that was born of a second chance
They fell so hard, she took him by the hand
He told her of a little piece of land that was by the sea
They had a dream

The old stone hearth is burned and black
A squatters fire begins to crack
The walls he built with his bare hands
Have tumbled down into the sand
They heard the news on a summer’s day
We’ll get you through all of the pain

They had a love that was born of a second chance
They fell so hard, she took him by the hand
He told her of a little piece of land that was by the sea

Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies
I don’t want to feel this anymore
I hear voices inside my head telling me,
To do things that are wrong
Is there light at the end of the road, or is it gone
Track Name: Invisible Children
I woke up in the darkness
watched my brother disappear
And I watched it all in silence
cause my voice was choked with fear
I still can hear him screaming
at the top of his lungs
And all around it’s quiet;
I still can see the guns
It’s been going on way too long
Invisible Children coming home

It’s the kind of thing that makes
the hair stand up upon your neck
You see the children lying there,
their bodies closely stacked
The man comes over to tell you
that you better be on your way
But you’re standing your ground
and you’re telling the world
That Kony is going to pay
It’s been going on way too long
Invisible Children coming home

When I was a child I had a nightmare
The boogey-man come and he took me away
Now I come to find the nightmare is a reality
It’s been happening since I was a child
and now it must end
It’s been going on way too long
Invisible Children coming home

Now you’ve heard this story
see the truth it must be told
The truth can be so dangerous
when you rock the status quo
The battle is just beginning;
people’s voice is being heard
We can answer the call see that tyranny falls
Now that justice is being served
It’s been going on way too long
Invisible Children coming home
Track Name: Thank You (for doing the dishes)
We started out at the song soiree where the people been coming from miles around to play, it’s a full house of love on a Saturday night, if it happens on a Wednesday music’s going all night.
It was late in the evening I was itching to play I had my guitar ready going up to the stage, saw two more boys throw their hat in the ring one said, “Ro! Cham! Beau! winner gonna get to sing!”
So many people you couldn’t open the door. You had to do the lap dance to get a spot on the floor, surfing the crowd make my way to the kitchen where people all are grooving to the guy who called scissors…
Now all the people are grooving I got to pick up my game, you know I planned to do a ballad on the human race, now I’m searching for a song, have the people sing along so I break out the bottle it goes pop! Let the music play.
So I’m thinking and drinking, all the people are moving, a vibe so lovin, I say, “Whoa look at that girl she got it going on, swaying ever so slowly she’s moving side to side, She’s got her elbows in the suds with the dishes piled high, she’s slinging them dishes like they’re going out of style when we go to the break all the people sing,
I want to thank you for doing the dishes, I want to thank you for sweeping the floor (repeat)

This second verse is dedicated to anyone who’s been alone at the party and your eves begin to wander you’re searching for something to do, so you head for the kitchen past the couple making out in the doorway, see the people in the kitchen they’re just starting to get in the groove.
All the dishes piled high it’s a welcome sight, put your hands in the water start to feel all right, hips are swaying in time people laughing behind, someone picks up the broom it’s a cleaning revolution.
So we’re sweeping and scrubbing, splishing and splashing, we’re scrubbing and rubbing, we even do the down and dirty you know we’re cleaning the oven. Well the hostess walks in she’s got some sweet hot muffins or some fresh raw pie however do you want it! Now we’re slinging them dishes like they’re going out to slyle and we head for the break all the people sing
I want to thank you for doing the dishes, I want to thank you for sweeping the floor

Yeah we started out at the song soiree where the people been coming from miles around to play, it’s a full house of love on a Saturday night, if it happens on a Wednesday music’s going all night. The people who listen they give us courage to sing it’s a beautiful thing a beautiful thing and when it all comes down I’ll remember the night when the people would sing the people would sing…
I want to thank you for doing the dishes, I want to thank you for sweeping the floor
