Track Name: Rock Biter
you better start running
cause I'm about to cross that line
and when I catch you
I'm gonna take what's mine

when you're all alone
and night creeps into your room
you better start crying
'cause I will be arriving soon

so strap on your boots
it's time to get up and light that fuse

'cause I'm Rock Biter
and I'm about to lose my mind
'cause I'm Rock Biter
and it ain't no use to run and hide
strap on your boots
it's time to get up and light that fuse

I'm coming to get you
Track Name: Train God
the train god lives in cabin three
he still needs a ticket 'cause nothing is free
I think he just sang to me

oh train god where did you get your gift
and why did you choose the cabin with
the 14 floor lights and the bathroom lit

fabulous thoughts here have been retold
and adjectives have turned to bold
if I wasn't then I think that now I've been sold

can I join you on your traveling days
with Monday's off and a Summer break
20 hours a week, benefits and pay

oh train god of cabin three
you are my love, my sweet mon cheri
I think he just sang to me, sang to me
Track Name: Ranger Stranger
detectives are stumped by the 15 grand
police have yet to catch the man case in hand
where were you late last night?
the guard said that he saw you in the shadowed light

oh who robbed that train?
oh who crashed that plane?
oh who sleeps in the rain?
it's the Ranger Stranger and he's robbed me again

locks were cut and the goods were gone
very few could do this without using guns
yhis ranger guy, the lone suspect
is lucky that no evidence has been found yet

oh who robbed that train?
oh who crashed that plane?
oh who sleeps in the rain?
it's the Ranger Stranger and he's robbed me again

now I'm not saying that you're the guy
but it's hard to argue with a well-trained eye
if I were you I'd get out of town
and stash the goods somewhere where they cannot be found

I feel your career is about to end
because you leave behind too many clues for them
next time when you hop that train
make the ticket one way and be gone my friend

oh who robbed that train?
oh who crashed that plane?
oh who sleeps in the rain?
it's the Ranger Stranger and he's robbed me again

now that's the story of this awesome man
who beat out the authorities who want him canned
remember this story when I'm gone
the ranger stranger wants to make sure it lives on

oh who robbed that train?
oh who crashed that plane?
oh who sleeps in the rain?
it's the ranger stranger and he's robbed me again
Track Name: Jester
in the royal court the Jester speaks
he cracks a joke and smiles peak
the jury's glad, the king's throne it creaks
the mood turns cold the day turns bleak

in the last of his tries the Jester cries
"I motion for commotion" and the courtroom flies

the guards run in order they seek
but it turns out they're way too weak
they grab the clown call him a freak
and cover his mouth but can't stop the leak

in the last of his tries the Jester cries
"I motion for commotion" and the kingdom flies

the Jester's mess is not unique
the king's young wife has a nice physique
so funny the man that turned his cheek
the king had more then a critique

in the last of his tries the Jester cries
"I motion for commotion" and the kingdom flies
Track Name: Peace
blue consumes the night
and day breaks slowly from left to right
the sun it glows so warm
the breeze cools the air

somewhere flies a kite
and underneath the children put up quite a fight
on fields once used for war
time makes them unaware

this is a song about peace
this is a song about peace my friend
this is a song about peace
and I reach my hand to mend

the strong feel contrite
you can speak strongly with it sounding light
pleas of the injured
believe the sounds there

hearing the sounds might
they can move the mountains no matter their height
it might just appear
when we don't have a spare

this is a song about peace
this is a song about peace my friend
this is a song about peace
and I reach my hand to lend
Track Name: Truck Driver
i'm a truck driver
with 18 tires that I lead
make sure they're good and straight
make sure that they don't speed

only got the C.B.
a little TV for the night
only me to talk to
but it's alright, it's alright

been wandering so long
been wandering free
been wondering what i'll come across
and what i'll see
don't know where i'm going
but that's fine with me
all roads lead me to where i want to be

i'm traveling the highways
i'm going my way map in hand
gotta keep moving gotta know this restless land

been forth and i've been back
from nyack to L.A.
seen the desert up close
seen it far away

been wandering so long
been wandering free
been wondering what i'll come across
and what i'll see
don't know where i'm going
but that's fine with me
all roads lead me to where i want to be

i'm just a lonely truck driver indeed
don't know what i want but i got what i need
the road is my home the road is my peace
the road is my path it's the life that i lead

been wandering so long
been wandering free
been wondering what i'll come across
and what i'll see
don't know where i'm going
but that's fine with me
all roads lead me to where i want to be
