Track Name: Yin & Yang
Yin & Yang
David Modersbach

Give me some yin
Give me some yang
Tell me I can do any old thing
Take me to where the blood in my veins
Runs as red as the strings of hate in your brains

Run me don’t walk me take me in vain
Moon in the gutter, face in the rain
Life in a coffin, I’m feeling no pain
Leave me tomorrow, take all your things and go…

Give me some blue skies, give me some rain
I’ll do what I can try not to complain
I’ll pack up my baggages, get me a train
Find me a new life start searching again for you

Give me some yin
Give me some yang
Tell me I can do any old thing
Take me to where the blood in my veins
Runs as red as the strings of hate in your brains

Run me don’t walk me take me in vain
Moon in the gutter, face in the rain
Life in a coffin I'm feeling no pain
Leave me tomorrow, take all your things and go away
I’ll see you away I’ll find you on some other day
Maybe we’ll stop maybe we’ll stay
But I don’t think I’ll have too much to say
To you...
Track Name: Crossroads
Crossroads
David Modersbach

I can’t wait much longer than this
The moon is out but there’s something missing
I could get a mind from a highway sign
But the signs are stolen and I’m left behind

Left behind in the month of May
I’m standing at the crossroads got nothing much to say
Can’t look forward cause I’m feeling such pain
Can’t look backwards or I’ll do it all again

I look back, I look forth
Birds flying South, people moving North
I’ll just set here , wait and see
Standing at the crossroads I'm watching history

Standing at the crossroads, difficult place in history
Watching the lives roll by
Cars piled high with broken dreams and memories
Hope they don’t get lost in the great by and by
