Track Name: Cold
Cold
By Derek Campbell

Warm yourself by the fireside
This old house in the winter time is known
To be pretty cold

Was here you found me long ago
You touched my skin and I was like a stone
Cold

Sit beside me my old friend
Tell me how it can be again
Like the days of old
Before the war was sold
Before the door was closed on your nose
And the blood and tears just flowed
So you reached around until you found
Something that was cold

Put your arm across my shoulder
Keep me warm as we grow tired and old
And walk the road of souls
Through the gates of gold
I’ve been told places you don’t wanna go
Can be smoking hot with fire
So the nice place must be cold
Track Name: Wicked Lover
Wicked Lover
By Derek Campbell

I remember still
It was I that paid the bill
But it was you that rolled the dice
It was cold like your eyes
We were bolder than our lies
I was told it was nice… It was so nice

Hey Wicked Lover
Get off of my mind
Oh there’s no other
Can crack my whip like a spine
Oh filthy mother
I’m gonna sneak up from be high end

Dark of night the fire burned
I tried a trick that I had learned
You were wiser and you called my bluff
The moon she fell the sun he rised
You could tell I was hypnotized
You didn’t stop all though I’d had quite enough… You were so rough!

Hey Wicked Lover
Get off of my mind
Oh there’s no other
Can crack my whip like a spine
Oh filthy mother
I’m sneakin up from buh hynde

Now I lay me down to rest
I wait here right inside my nest
For you to feed me like a baby bird
If I should fly before I break
I’ll say the word and I’ll spoil the take
But from you no other will be heard… Not a word… No

Hey Wicked Lover
Get off of my mind
Oh there’s no other
Can crack my whip like a spine
Oh filthy mother
I’m sneakin up from buh hi hi hynde
Track Name: Planet 5ive
Planet 5ive
By Derek Campbell

Well I never knew you were from outer space
Until I saw you makin out with everyone in the place
Nymphs and satyrs, boys and girls
That’s how they do it in the other world
Then she moved to the left she slide to the right
She shook it out real loose and locked it down real tight
I never saw it but they say when she swirls
She makes the enemies lovers and the boys into girls

She’s the way out mama from Planet 5ive
She needs your lovin just to keep her alive
She don’t care about the latest style
She looks her best when all she wares is a smile

She likes cheeseburgers and possum stew
She’d whup a man twice the size of you
Pimps and ninjas, heroes and fools
They do their best to play it by her rules
Then she moved to the left she moved to the right
She shook it out real loose and locked it down real tight
I never saw it but they say when she spins
All the fatties get skinny and the losers all win

She’s the way out mama from Planet 5ive
She needs your lovin just to keep her alive
She don’t care about the latest style
She looks her best when all she wares is a smile


Well I know I was in trouble when I looked at her face
And all the world went away we went to outer space
Stars and planets comets and swirls
Shot out and took orbit when she shook out her curls
Well she moved to the left she moved to the right
She shook it out real loose and locked it down real tight
And now I saw it with my own two eyes
And the fantasies real and the truth is all lies

She’s the way out mama from Planet 5ive
She needs your lovin just to keep her alive
She don’t care about the latest style
She looks her best when all she wares is a smile
Track Name: 20 Miles
20 Miles
by Derek Campbell

I’ve been walkin for 20 miles
And I’m thirsty for the rain
Don’t feel like talk and I don’t want to smile
Just want to walk on from my pain
And I know that it’s mine
And you can’t take that away
And if it’s all that I can find
I don’t know what to say

I’ve been walkin for 40 miles
Just trying to get away
I’m not sure what I hope to find
All I know is I can’t stay
I’ve been walkin 50 miles
And I’m feelin kind of drained
And I’m thinkin about getting high
But there’s something in my way
And I know that I’ll be fine
If I can only get away
And it shows that I’ve been blind
But I know I’ll have to pay

I’ve been walkin 100 miles
I guess I’m never gonna change
I’ve been walkin 1000 miles
And I still feel the same
Track Name: High to High
By Derek Campbell

High to high
too narrow
too cold
like a nightmare on high scaffold
creaky and old

I fall through the cold crisp air
into the arms of my unyielding love

I crawl through the widening dispair
and drop free fall from the fire raging high above

I am exploding like a ripe fruit
dropped from a high place

will the birds come and devour my seeds?
or will they fly, fly away?
Track Name: The Other Side
By Derek Campbell

Three sides three times in a spiral line
five chimes chimed five times and died
prime time blind sides they were so sublime
we had no designs

I tried that wine it was cold and kind
my mind ran wild in the vine
one sign burned bright far in the sky
calling us to fly

and so it goes and on it rides
until we reach the other
side with me just this one last time
I'll make it worth your while

Tip toe don't slip no try to slide
wind blow fill sails and off we glide
night fall breeze died and we ride the tide
too deep to dive

Inch by inch times mile by mile
pinch my wrist if i start to smile
act nice don't bite walk single file
fall into the pile

rip tide zip line to the other side
flip mine twice till it's gold inside
grip high hold tight hope not to die
no time for spite

spit twice shake dice and let 'em fly
snake eyes they spy the divine
great white bites nice on the second try
it's all in your eyes

and so it goes and on it rides
until we reach the other
side with me just this one last time
I'll make it worth your while

Shoobie-ooba-doobie-ooba-shoobie-ooba-shoobie
Track Name: I Always Thought
By Derek Campbell

Hard Love, hard love, hard love

My heart decided a long time ago
It was too busy keeping time
To let you take it to the heights we climbed
Oh the highest heights I’ve ever known

I always thought if the wind was right
I could fly
How could I have known
That I’d come falling crashing back to Earth

Hard Love, hard love, hard love

The world kept moving as the lines were drawn
You had no reason to be kind
I had that feeling I’d felt once before
When it stripped me bare and set me drifting on the tide

I always thought that in the nick of time
I’d arrive
How could I have have known
You’d pick that up and take me at my word

And now I’m on the outside
All alone again
Oh on the outside looking in
And all I see is all I ever wanted to begin with
But I never sought, cause I never bought, that I could be tought
I guess that’s what I always thought

Track Name: I Never Want It To (End)
By Derek Campbell

I like to have a good time hey who doesn’t?
I think of all the times I’ve had I don’t remember now
Every now and then my memory gets a little fuzzy
And things I do remember seem they couldn’t be somehow

All the faces, places, people I can still see in my head
Reaching back across the ages till I reach the starting line
Waiting on the moment I can see their smiling face again
Take them in a warm embrace and hold their tiny hand in mine
Hey…It’s been a long time
How you been my friend?... Alright
Let’s get this party started

Every moment that I spend with you my friend
I never want it to end
I get excited at just the sound of your name
I never want it to end
I must admit that I’m beside myself
I never want it to end
You ask me when it will end
I never want it to

Thank you everyone tonight for coming out to see the show
We just got one more number we would really like to play
We’ve had the best of times but now we’ve really gotta go
We just got one more thing that we would really like to say
Thanks you… We love you all
Individually … And as a unit
Yah

Every moment that I spend with you my friend
I never want it to end
I get excited at just the sound of your name
I never want it to end
I must admit that I’m beside myself
I never want it to end
You ask me when it will end
I never want it to
