[Guitar Solos - Matt Harvey] [Chorus] Carry on, my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry no more [Verse 1] Once I rose above the noise and confusion Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion I was soaring ever higher But I flew too high Though my eyes could see, I still was a blind man Though my mind could think, I still was a mad man I hear the voices when I'm dreaming I can hear them say [Chorus] Carry on, my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry no more [Verse 2] Masquerading as a man with a reason My charade is the event of the season And if I claim to be a wise man, well It surely means that I don't know On a stormy sea of moving emotion Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean I set a course for winds of fortune But I hear the voices say [Chorus] Carry on, my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry no more, no [Guitar Solo - Matt Harvey] [Bridge] Carry on, you will always remember Carry on, nothing equals the splendor Now your life's no longer empty But surely heaven waits for you [Chorus] Carry on, my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry, don't you cry no more [Guitar Solos - Leon del Muerte]

[Verse 1] Rumor spreadin' a-'round in that Texas town 'bout that shack outside La Grange And you know what I'm talkin' about Just let me know if you wanna go To that home out on the range They gotta lotta nice girls ah [Chorus] Have mercy A-haw haw haw-haw Heh, A-haw haw haw [Verse 2] Well, I hear it's fine if you got the time And the ten to get yourself in A hmm, hmm And I hear it's tight most every night But now I might be mistaken Hmm, hmm, hmm [Solo - Eric Wagner] Mercy! [Solo 2 & 4 - Keith Merrow] [Solo 3 & 5 - Leon del Muerte]

[Verse 1] Waiting for the break of day Searching for something to say Flashing lights against the sky Giving up I close my eyes Sitting cross-legged on the floor Twenty five or six to four [Solo - Leon del Muerte] [Verse 2] Staring blindly into space Getting up to splash my face Wanting just to stay awake Wondering how much I can take Should I try to do some more? Twenty five or six to four [Solo - Kevin Hufnagel] [Verse 3] Feeling like I ought to sleep Spinning room is sinking deep Searching for something to say Waiting for the break of day Twenty five or six to four Twenty five or six to four

[Verse 1] She'll always be there trying to grab a hold She thought she knew me, but she didn't know That I was sad and wanted her to go [Chorus] Parasite lady Parasite eyes Parasite lady No need to cry [Verse 2] I didn't wanna have to get away I told her things I didn't wanna say I need her, and I hope she'll understand [Chorus] Parasite lady Parasite eyes Parasite lady No need to cry [Solo - Tom Draper]

Before loneliness Will break my heart Send me a postcard, darling How can I make you understand I wanna be your woman Here I'm waiting for a little sign Waiting till the end of time Send me a postcard, darling Send me a postcard now [Solo - Leon del Muerte] I can't taste a lonely night I need someone I can turn to Look out for the day I get a little sign I want to know your own mind Now Now please don't let me down Ain't no lover like me in town Send me a postcard, darling Send me a postcard now

[Verse 1] I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping While my guitar gently weeps I look at the floor, and I see it needs sweeping Still my guitar gently weeps [Bridge 1] I don't know why nobody told you How to unfold your love I don't know how someone controlled you They bought and sold you [Verse 2] I look at the world, and I notice it's turning While my guitar gently weeps With every mistake, we must surely be learning Still my guitar gently weeps [Solo - Elizabeth Schall] [Bridge 2] I don't know how you were diverted You were perverted too I don't know how you were inverted No one alerted you [Verse 3] I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping While my guitar gently weeps (I look) Look at you all Still my guitar gently weeps [Solo - Elizabeth Schall] [Outro] Oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh

I'm outa luck, outa love Gotta photograph, picture of Passion killer, you're too much You're the only one I wanna touch I see your face every time I dream On every page, every magazine So wild and free so far from me You're all I want, my fantasy Oh, look what you've done to this rock 'n' roll clown Oh Oh, look what you've done Photograph - I don't want your Photograph - I don't need your Photograph - All I've got is a photograph But it's not enough I'd be your lover, if you were there Put your hurt on me, if you dare Such a woman, you got style You make every man feel like a child You got some kinda hold on me You're all wrapped up in mystery So wild and free so far from me You're all I want, my fantasy Oh, Look what you've done to this rock'n'roll clown Oh Oh, Look what you've done [Repeat Chorus] [Solo - Alejandro Corredor] You've gone straight to my head [Solo - Alejandro Corredor]

[Verse 1] Your daddy works in porno, now that mommy's not around She used to love her heroin, but now she's underground So, you stay out late at night and you do your coke for free Drivin' your friends crazy with your life's insanity [Chorus] Well, well, well, you just can't tell Well, well, well, my Michelle Look out [Verse 2] Sowin all your wild oats in another's luxuries Yesterday was Tuesday, maybe Thursday you can sleep But school starts much too early and this hotel wasn't free So party 'til your connection calls, honey, I'll return the key [Chorus] Well, well, well, you just can't tell Well, well, well, my Michelle Well, well, well, you never can tell Well, well, well, my Michelle [Bridge] Everyone needs love You know that it's true Someday you'll find someone that'll fall in love with you But, oh, the time it takes When you're all alone Someday you'll find someone that you can call your own But 'til then ya better! [Guitar Solo] [Verse 3] Now you're clean and so discreet I won't say a word But most of all this song is true, case you haven't heard So c'mon and stop your cryin', 'cause we both know money burns Honey don't stop tryin' an' you'll get what you deserve [Chorus] Well, well, well, you just can't tell Well, well, well, my Michelle Well, well, well, you never can tell Well, well, well, my Michelle [Solo - Sebastian Silva] [Outro] My my my Michelle My my my Michelle My my my Michelle Michelle

Nights in white satin Never reaching the end Letters I've written Never meaning to send Beauty I'd always missed With these eyes before Just what the truth is I can't say anymore 'Cause I love you Yes I love you Oh, how I love you Gazing at people Some hand in hand Just what I'm going through They can't understand Some try to tell me Thoughts they cannot defend Just what you want to be You will be in the end And I love you Yes I love you Oh, how I love you Oh, how I love you Nights in white satin Never reaching the end Letters I've written Never meaning to send Beauty I'd always missed With these eyes before Just what the truth is I can't say anymore Yes I love you Oh, how I love you Oh, how I love you Yes I love you Yes I love you Oh, how I love you Oh, how I love you Breathe deep the gathering gloom Watch lights fade from every room Bed sitter people look back and lament Another days useless energy spent Impassioned lovers wrestle as one Lonely man cries for love and has none New mother picks up and suckles her son Senior citizens wish they were young Cold hearted orb that rules the night Removes the colors from our sight Red is gray and yellow white But we decide which is right And which is an illusion
