Track Name: Rise Above
Rise Above
Words & Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2017 Joric Music BMI

I
As the night began to fall
There wasn’t that much to say
The writing on the wall
Was left to fade away

II
No one had spoke the words
Yet their meaning was so clear
It’s not about the hurt
Only what we could not hear

Chorus
Didn’t matter all that much
The odds and ends of love
Grown cold to the touch
Lord let me rise above

III
Our debt is laid to rest
The ledger has been closed
Truth is we didn’t try our best
No one need ever know

Chorus

IV
No safe retreat in store
For those who wait for dawn
Not a care for who loved more
The feelings are now gone

Chorus
Track Name: Suddenly Single
Suddenly Single
Words & Music by Ric Gordon
Copyright 2017 Joric Music BMI

I
It started simply enough in the dark
A paired adventure devoid of thought
Not yet taken from the heart
More like a fever that’s been caught

Chorus
Hands in the air
Nobody move
Dangerous games make your spine tingle
When you’re suddenly single

II
The clock strikes midnight you must run
Nothing betrays what you have done
How quick it came has left them stunned
Only fools expect a safe outcome

Chorus

III
A safe escape was barely made
Without a trace to spoil the day
Never a thought that I would stay
Suddenly single the only play

Chorus
Track Name: Walk Away
Walk Away
Words and Music By Ric Gordon
Copyright 2016 Joric Music BMI

I
I don’t believe in dreams
They never ever come true
I don’t believe in peace
Nightmares will always find you
I don’t believe in hope
It’s just emptiness to fall through
I don’t believe in life
Just in the pain that comes due

Chorus
You cut your feet when everything has shattered
On realization that you never really mattered
In cold repose to find salvation comes too late
Just pull your pants up turn around and then walk away

II
Entrapped by loneliness
Where only pain is harbored
Years of college
Making $12 an hour
To watch the police
Take away the people’s flower
No way to change the course
When you’ve been overpowered

Chorus

III
Our leaders tell us
That we’ve never done so well
Truth is the government
Is damning us to hell
The politician’s lies
Are just something to sell
To keep the image up
So nobody can tell.

Chorus
