Frank Cooney Considering i really don't care for much of the music produced today this album is different. i downloaded it at 11:30pm and could not stop listening. The sounds and lyrics bring me back to the 70's when music was music with Zep, ACDC and many more. EXCELLENT JOB!!!!! Favorite track: Pony.

Track Name: Last Chance for Love
Last Chance for Love

Say what you will
But don’t believe yourself
Wrap your arms around me
And hold me together
I can be struck at any time
By thoughts that send me reeling
Stumbling over details
Of the stories I am telling

I want you to be / closer to me

I am an empty shell
And I need you to full fill
I have no will to speak of
You are my last chance for love
Everyone else has gone away
Everyone else has hurt me so
So I cannot let you go
I will fight forever

I want you to be / closer to me

I want you to be close to me
But the closer we get I’m more afraid
You will see the shame I’ve hidden
And I know then what you will do
You will get angry
You will go away
You will leave me helpless
You will leave me all alone

I want you to be / closer to me
Track Name: I am The President
I AM THE PRESIDENT

I got the whole wide world sittin’ here in my hands
From the ice cold poles to the Arizona hot sand
I got a million machines and I don’t want to flaunt
But you know, I can wake up whenever I want

I am the President
I am the President
I am the President
I am the President

We can take my rocket ship into outer space
Cause I’m the ruler of this nation and the human race
Ask not what you can do for me
Ask for magic wishes baby, I’m a give you three

I am the President
I am the President
I am the President
I am the President

I am the President
I am the President
Track Name: Thunderbird
Thunderbird

Do you want to be alive
Let me take you for a drive
Step inside the interior
Two tone black and white

Strap in when we undock
Cruise-o-matic, Landau top
Now we float around the block
Keep you safe with electric lock

Yeah, Thunderbird

I have something to confide
Thunderbird can be your guide
Did you ever want to get away
Back door is for suicide
Summer sky
Come and fly
When you’re ready to ride

Yeah, Thunderbird
Ah-oh Thunderbird
Yeah, Thunderbird
Ah-oh Thunderbird

Let’s Drive…

Yeah, Thunderbird
Ah-oh Thunderbird
Track Name: W.I.T.O.
WHAT I’M THINKING OF

Playing stupid games in my head
They keep me all by myself
But baby I don’t wanna do that with you
All o my blind spots come into view

Here’s what I’m thinking of (x2)

I’m not gonna try to make you happy
I want to give you love
I don’t want to ask you for nothing
Here what I’m thinking of:
I want to relate and appreciate
I want to give you love
I wanna see you now and again
I want to give you love

Here’s what I’m thinking of (x2)

// We look good together
// We feel good together
// Baby there aint nothing wrong, so
// Here is what I’m thinking of:
You and me in a close embrace
We forget about everything else
You and me gettin lost in each other
(We can) recover ourselves without the smother

Here’s what I’m thinking of (x2)

I’m thinkin bout you (x4)
Track Name: On the Meds
On the Meds

When you feel alone
You can pick up the phone
And enter the zone
On the meds

They will take you away
They will lead you astray
So take it easy
On the meds

Deeper you dive
You should really take five
With your zero sex drive
On the meds

Boys don’t cry
So dry your eye
You’re about to get high
On the meds

CH
He’s only minutes away
I got my money ready
Why does time move so very slow

You took it too far
Went and sold your guitar
Now you know who you are
On the meds

Too late to stop
Credit bad at the drop
Even at the pawn shop
On the meds

Everything’s gone
Accounts overdrawn
No one left to con
On the meds

Not doing well
You are locked in a cell
But they’re about to yell
On the meds

They will take you away
They will lead you astray
So take it easy
On the meds
Track Name: Pony
Pony

I'm just a bachelor
I'm looking for a partner
Someone who knows how to ride
Without even falling off

Gotta be compatible
Takes me to my limits
Girl when I break you off
I promise that you won't want to get off

[Chorus]
If your horny, Let's do it
Ride it, My Pony
My saddle's waiting
Come and jump on it

If your horny, Let's do it
Ride it, My Pony
My saddle's waiting
Come and jump on it

Sitting here flossing
Peeping your steelo
Just once if I have the chance
The things I will do to you
You and your body
Every single portion
Send chills up and down your spine
Juices flowing down your thigh

[Chorus]

If we're gonna get nasty, Baby
First we'll show & tell
Till I reach your ponytail
Lurk all over and through you baby
Until I reach your stream
You'll be on my jockey team

[Chorus]
[repeats and ends]

(Ride it)
(My Saddle's)
Track Name: Gaslighter
GASLIGHTER –

We had a fight
Through half the night
You were out of your mind
I was on the floor
I tried to work it out
The very next day
I brought it up
You said it never happened
Maybe you really think that’s true
Maybe you just cannot face yourself

So now you never said
What I know you said?
Now you blame me for making you do what you
fought like hell to say you never did?
What do you mean?
Where the hell you been?
How can I believe in your love
when you don’t even hear what I’m speaking of?
Maybe you really think it’s true
Maybe you just cannot face yourself

The ground starts to shift
Underneath my feet
“I never said…
Baby, please! Yes, you did!
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…

I said it don't matter if you open your eyes
fabricator, storyteller, makin' up lies
it ain't dark in here, we at status quo
the light is low, just a tiny little flame of gaslight

Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…

Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Gas light Gas light Gas light Gas light Gaslighter…
Track Name: Nerves
Nerves

Six on the dot
Punching the clock
Mean routine
Shampoo, caffeine

Reclaim your chains
Backbone review
No one can hold you hostage
Except you

Slow elevator, makin’ you later
It doesn’t matter, you know how to spiel
Stomach is churning, need to be earning
More bacon and bread to pay for your steel

Don’t let him deny you, or turn a blind eye to
He once was in your shoes, payin his own dues
Intrepidation and determination
A bigger paycheck and the man’s respect

CHORUS

Nerves of steel and nerves of ice
Nerves that lock down when you’re in a vice
Nothing can shake you, no one can break you
The people fall down ‘cause they know that you’re made of…

Nerves of steel and nerves of ice
Nerves that lock down when you’re in a vice
Nothing can shake you, no one can break you
The people fall down ‘cause they know you got nerves

Straighten your tie
Give her the eye
Stake your claim
For your hall of fame

You’ve done it before
At the convenient store
Still carry the scar
Got shot down SO far

This isn’t the same as that harsh de-fame
Robbing you blind of your confidence game
Patiently waiting, stare at the ceiling, she is
Stuck in your head as you lay on the box spring

This is the one, the light of the sun
She cannot deny you, a man with a gun
She will come around, when you tie her down
You finally found a queen for your crown

CHORUS
