My Way 04:46
Sittin' at the station waiting on a train to take me out of this town Air is stale and I can't breathe, ain't no use in hangin' around No use in hangin' around If I don't leave soon there's gonna be hell to pay I'm gonna do it my way or no way at all I'm doin' it my way or no way at all All around my hometown, nobody cares what happens to me But as soon as they need help those very same people won't let me be They won't let me be No one listens to what I've got to say I'm gonna do it my way or no way at all I'm doin' it my way or no way at all Sittin' at the station waiting on a train to take me out of this town Air is stale and I can't breathe, ain't no use in hangin' around No use in hangin' around If I don't leave soon there's gonna be hell to pay Cuz nobody listens to what I've got to say I'm gonna do it my way or no way at all I'm doin' it my way or no way at all I'm doin' it my way or no way at all Gotta do it my way or no way at all I'm doin' it my way, my way, my way, my way

Indifference 03:44
How many times must we walk down the same old street? Corrupt get away with murder while the innocent take the heat As the world crumbles around you, you sit on the fence But I just can't stand your indifference, your indifference How many lives must be lost before we set things right? I don't even know how you can sleep at night Livin' in your little bubble, you ain't got no defense And I just can't stand your indifference, your indifference The world crumbles around you, you sit on the fence And I just can't stand your indifference I ain't gonna stop now, I'm swingin' for the fence But I just can't stand your indifference Your indifference Your indifference Your indifference

This world has got me so confused Innocent people dying in the streets every time I see the news Those who swore to protect and serve Are the same ones on my television, say, "Boy got what he deserved." We've come so far, got a long way to go Until that day comes we're all above and below Dig this They say some things will never change Even when the script gets flipped and the set gets rearranged We'd rather argue, fuss and fight Than stand up for our fellow man and fight for what is right We've come so far, got a long long way to go Until that day comes we're all above and... Above and below Above and below, above and below Above and below, above and below We've come so far, got a long way to go Until that day comes, we're all above and... Above and below, above and below Above and below

Bright Side 05:21
When the world seems cold and you've got nowhere to go You wanna run and hide When you can't find a way to make it through another day And you fall to the dark side Let the light shine in, get back up again Turn a loss into a win Take it all in stride when you look on the bright side Look on the bright side I know how you feel, you've got a wound that doesn't heal It's hard to swallow your pride But when you make amends you might just turn enemies into friends And then you turn the tide You wanna run away, nothing can make stay You can live to fight another day When you let hope provide and look on the bright side Look on the bright side You look back on where you've been Find comfort in your skin You remember how to win Learn to live again You let the light shine in, you get back up again You turn a loss into a win When you let hope provide and look on the bright side Look on the bright side Look on the bright side Look on the bright side Just look on the bright side

Listen up people, it's time to spread the news Listen up people, it's time to spread the news That there's a new sound goin' down And it ain't your daddy's blues Well you know I do love the classics But it ain't 1955 We gotta keep on movin' if we're gonna keep these blues alive Listen here people, it's time to spread the news That there's a new sound goin' down And it ain't your daddy's blues The blues came from the country, then they moved on downtown In this world we're livin' it's up to us to keep these blues around Listen here people, it's time to spread the news That there's a new sound goin' down And it ain't your daddy's blues Well the blues came from the country, then it moved on downtown In this brave new world we're livin' It's up to you and me to keep these blues around Listen here people, it's time to spread the news Oh listen here people, it's time to spread the news That there's a new sound goin' down And it ain't your daddy's blues Said it ain't your daddy's blues It's time to spread the news It ain't your daddy's blues It's time to spread the news That there's a new sound goin' down And it ain't your daddy's blues

Staring up at the ceiling, it's been so long since the sun when down My mind's got me reeling, walls don't make no sound I can't shake this feeling that I'll soon be in the ground I pray the lord my soul to keep If I should die I'd be in too deep I can't sleep Can't stop yet, still got so far to go Time keeps on slipping' (slippin' slippin') Can't afford to take it slow Cuz nobody knows when their blood runs cold I pray the lord my soul to keep If I should die before I wake I'd be in too deep I can't sleep Staring up at the ceiling, it's been so long since the sun went down My mind's got me reeling, these walls don't make no sound I can't shake this feeling that I'll soon be in the ground I pray the lord my soul to keep If I should die I'd be in too deep I can't sleep I can't sleep I can't sleep I can't sleep I can't sleep

I'm goin' way down south, gon' take the winding road I'm goin' way down south, gon' take the winding road There ain't no telling just how far down I might go I'm making my own way, you know I've got to be free I'm making my own way, you know I've got to be free I'm chasing my dreams while my demons chase me Now I've been way down south, my time done came and went Now I've been way down south, my time done came and went From now on my road map will be heaven sent From now on my road map will be heaven sent From now on my road map will be heaven sent

I may not have a lot of money I don't drive a fancy car But there's one thing I've got a lot of And it always takes me far I gotta whole lotta soul A whole lotta soul Something that'll never grow old It's a whole lotta soul Life can be so complicated You barely have time to breathe This thing helps you stop and smell the roses And it delivers sweet relief I gotta whole lotta soul A whole lotta soul Something that'll never grow old I gotta whole lotta soul Jimi and James had the power Marvin, Prince and Curtis too They all had that thing in common And they passed it down to me and you They had a whole lotta soul A whole lotta soul It's something that'll never grow old I gotta whole lotta soul A whole lotta soul A whole lotta soul It's something that'll never grow old It's a whole lotta soul
