about

This is a collection of unreleased songs that have yet to find themselves on a proper album. In some cases, a few of the songs might even be considered 'demo' versions but they still sound quite passable. I'm sure that this list of songs will grow as time passes and perhaps even shrink if one of these Orphans finds its way onto a future CD.

I get many requests for copies of these songs that I play at gigs, so here they are for the taking. Feel free to share once you download, just give credit where credit is due.

Track Name: Waitin' On A Revolution
Walkin' down the road
Got a light in my hand
Sun is high in the noon day sky
And I'm lookin' for an honest man

There's gonna be a revolution
A revolution
There's gonna be a revolution
A revolution
Waitin' on my revolution
My revolution
And baby - heads are gonna roll

Big Brother's steppin' out
He's got a twinkle in his eye
He's got a hand in my pocket
He's bleedin' me dry
Call it war call it genocide
Call it what you will
People die Presidents lie
Blood and oil spill

There's gonna be a revolution
A revolution
There's gonna be a revolution
A revolution
Waitin' on my revolution
My revolution
And baby - heads are gonna roll

Listen (to it)
Raise up your voice and
Shout it out (right in their face)
We've got no choice and
Take it apart
And throw it down
Against the wall
Who will be the first - the first to fall?


Guns and gasoline
Lay it on the line
Rip it outta my cold dead hands
Yeah baby I got mine

There's gonna be a revolution
A revolution
There's gonna be a revolution
A revolution
Waitin' on my revolution
My revolution
And baby - heads are gonna roll
Track Name: Surrender To Your Love
Sometimes I feel
Like the world's a hungry mouth
With an appetite cold and unsated

Sometimes I feel
Like I'm about to be swallowed up
Just an afterthought old and outdated

Then you come to me
You pick me up
You clean and dress my wounds
You whisper softly of better days
And in the pale light
Before the morning comes
I see no difference between your moon and sun
All my wars have been fought and won
Now I surrender to your love
Now I surrender to your love

I'm tired of carrying
The weight of this life
I'm tired of running on
The edge of this knife
Lies are forgotten
Lying underneath your truth
Those eyes have forsaken me
I fly a white flag of truce

I'm coming home
I've laid down my arms
I never asked to be a hero

And in the pale light
Before the morning comes
I see no difference between your moon and sun
All my wars have been fought and won
Now I surrender to your love
Now I surrender to your love

Sometimes I want
Just a little more than what gets me by
A rich man's dessert tasting so sweet

Sometimes I want
What a wise man holds to his heart
An hallelujah simple - pure - complete

Then you come to me
You pick me up
You clean and dress my wounds
You whisper softly of better days
And in the pale light
Before the morning comes
I see no difference between your moon and sun
All my wars have been fought and won

Now I surrender to your love
Now I surrender to your love
