Track Name: Leaving (feat. Burn/Iorio)
Too young to know any better
but old enough to see what's there
no one said it would be easy

no one said it would be fair
to somehow miss what isn't there
you gave your all when all was rare

and no one said it would be easy

nobody said it would be easy

and nobody said it would be fair

and no one said it would be easy

and it's leaving
and it's leaving, leaving for good
with no rhyme or reason
with no rhyme or reason
no one told me
no one told me
no one told me
nobody said it would be safe
nobody said it would be free
nobody said it would be something
nobody told me i could leave
nobody told me i could leave
Track Name: Swayed (feat. Burn/Iorio)
We seem to be complicated
You seem preoccupied
These things are interrelated
see how these things are entwined

I guess i never noticed
how lonely it must be
to feel this every day
she can be swayed
ooh and she can be swayed
in a hundred million ways

gridlock sunset before me
and the snow is black as coal
northern winds will soon migrate
and will leave this city alone

I guess i never noticed
how lonely it must be
to feel this every day
she can be swayed
ooh and she can be swayed
in a hundred million ways
she can be swayed
in a hundred million ways
she can be swayed
Track Name: Long Way Down (feat. Burn/Ferry)
I saw you drifting away.
I thought you had a grip on me.
I felt your hand.
You shook away.
You swam away
I washed away.
There was a storm, I had to run.
I had to find a higher ground.

Now I'm standing on a narrow edge.
Jagged rocks beneath my feet.
But I'm safer here than I ever felt with you.

I loved you, you left me.
Alone in the dark on a raging sea.
I thought you really loved me.
You left me alone on an angry sea.

I wish I could fall.
I balance on the edge.
Jagged rocks they make me bleed.
The ocean sprays me down and knocks me off my feet.
But I'm hanging on. I keep hanging on.
I won't let go, no I won't let go.
But I wish I could fall.
And I wish you were there for me.
It's a long way down...

Track Name: The Circus Is In Town (feat. Ken Hewer)
Children waitin' at the bus stop
It's just another day
Talking and laughin'by the lockers
There's a big dance on Saturday

Just then all hell breaks loose
Little Jonny's lying on the floor
Mom & Dad are watching TV
They won't see him anymore

Cameras bright lights everywhere
The circus is in town
Count the cars & the flowers
Count your blessings now

What a shame
Who's to blame
It must those damn video games

Suddenly hell breaks loose
Romper room's a battle zone
Little Mary says her last prayer
We won't see her anymore

(Children siging Jesus Loves Me)
Track Name: Another Decade Is Gone (feat. Burn/Iorio)
You've got a lot of things to say
And you got a funny kind of way
Of letting me know that you're thinking
It's written all over your face
All over your face

We've got a lot of things at stake
And she's got a special kind of way
Of letting me know what she's thinking
It's written all over her face
All over her face

Don't ask why I've got no answers for you
I will always make you cry

Days... days turn into years
and years turn in too late
Another decade is gone
It's written all over my face
I wonder what she could be thinking
It's written all over the place
all over the place
all over her face
Track Name: Daybreak (feat. Les Lewellyn)
When the day breaks
I'll leave behind
another memory from my mind
The rear view mirror looks back in time
I'll be alright

When the day breaks
I'll say goodbye
to another failure in my life
It's getter harder to sacrifice
and I refuse to compromise

I'll leave this town alone
Nobody's there
No one who cares
Not since you were taken

When the day breaks
I'll think of you
and all the suffering
life put us through
I did what I could
The best I knew
I'm left confused

I walk this earth alone
Track Name: Sky Glider (feat. Ash Ferry)
Surrounded by your Love.
Although the weatherman says "There's a storm up ahead".
We're gonna make it thru, we're gonna fly.

There's a Million Miles before us now,
Nothings gonna hold us down tonight.
Sky Glider, Sky Glider.

So here we go, we'll take to the sky,
And it will be such a Beautiful Ride.
There's a Million Miles below us now,
Nothings gonna break us down. Beautiful Ride.

(Mark Hewer Guitar Solo)

Surrounded by your Love.
There's a Million Miles behind us now.
Nothings gonna slow us down tonight.

Sky Glider, Sky Glider.
Although the weatherman says "There's a storm up ahead"
We're gonna make it thru, cause we're in God's hands.
Surrounded by your Love.
Your Love taking me higher, Your Love is taking me higher.
So here we go, and it will be such a Beautiful Ride.
Beautiful Ride, Beautiful Ride.
Surrounded by your Love.
Track Name: Built For The War (w/Burn/Iorio)
Composed by Mark Hewer
Words & vocals by Daniel Iorio
Production & lead acoustic solos by Mike Burn


It's been a long day
It's been a treacherous ride
It's been a hard road
Still a hell of a climb
and I don't mind
They say I was built for the war
I might be fine
I might be running out of time

It was your first day back
You needed some time to recharge
'cause they broke your back
and some of them still are at large
It's an honest crime
They thought I was built for the war
but my hands are tied
and my eyes are sore

They think Ii'm out of my mind
They think I'm out of my mind
You know they just might be right
They think I'm out of my mind

It's a tell tale sign
Still you will settle the score
and my hands are tied
Tell me what all this is for

They think Ii'm out of my mind
They think I'm out of my mind
They think Ii'm out of my mind
oh oh

It's been a hard road
It's been a hell of a ride
It's been a hard road
