Track Name: I'll Be Right Here
I'LL BE RIGHT HERE by The Blackmail Seduction (all rights reserved)

When you feel all alone
I'll be right here
When you fall far from home
I'll be right here
And when you feel invisible
I'll be right here

When life it breaks you down
I'll be right here
Your voice a lonely sound
I'll be right here
When things don't turn out like you planned
I'll be right here

you don't know where to go
I'll be right here
Question all that you know
I'll be right here
Through all highs and the lows
I'll be right here

And when you're feelin' small
I'll be right here
Your back's against the wall
I'll be right here
And when you don't know where to turn

you don't know where to go
I'll be right here
Question all that you know
I'll be right here
Through all highs and the lows
I'll be right here

Tired of your own voice, fell behind a choice
when you're sick of compromise
When you fall from grace, mirror doubts your face
you've been cut back down to size

And when it seems I've gone
I'm still right here
You'll find me in this song
I'll be right here

And when you don't know where to turn
When things don't turn out like you planned
And when you feel invisible

you don't know where to go
I'll be right here
Question all that you know
I'll be right here
Through all highs and the lows
I'll be right here
Track Name: California Jackpot
CALIFORNIA JACKPOT by The Blackmail Seduction (all rights reserved)

On the third day he rises, like a Phoenix from the ashes
on the 7th day he pretends

Well he's no Jesus, even that depends
on the 7th day he pretends

It's been a long ride and today his luck is changin'

Stars line up, California jackpot
epiphany with a high noon snapshot

Next day he rises, worldview is changin'
and another day he pretends

It's been a long ride and today our luck is changin'

Stars line up California jackpot
epiphany with a high noon snapshot
3000 miles to find out who you're not
Stars line up California

You'll find the long way home, turn around you're already gone

Stars line up California jackpot
epiphany with a high noon snapshot
3000 miles to find out who you're not
Stars line up in California
Track Name: Hold You Down
HOLD YOU DOWN by The Blackmail Seduction (all rights reserved)

Feel free to take down my pictures
Don't need me hangin' around
Those happy times are now memories
and memories hold you down

Hold you down, Hold you down
Memories keep you bound
Can't repair the damage now
Hold you down, Hold you down
Try to scream without a sound
Don't you let me hold you down

You take your eye off the rearview
your level best to forget
But it's a fact that I've changed you
can't get me out of your head

I hold you down, hold you down
Memories they keep you bound
can't repair the damage now
Hold you down, Hold you down
try to scream without a sound
Don't you let me hold you down

You justify what you need to
try long enough in your head
Your quiet house is now haunted
A part of me is now the living dead

I hold you down, hold you down
Memories they keep you bound
can't repair the damage now
Don't hold me down, hold me down
too late to scream about it now
I won't let you hold me down
Track Name: Are You With Me
ARE YOU WITH ME by The Blackmail Seduction (all rights reserved)

Tonight, I reach out for someone
to help me feel anything but numb
Sometimes, we all want more than we've got
but I've got bullets to spare, let's give this new gun a shot

I can't say no, losing control

Are you with me tonight, feels like we've been here before
Just one more time and then we'll kick this out the door
Are you with me tonight, cuz I can't feel this anymore
Live forever tonight, cuz that's all we've ever asked for

More I get the looser I feel
The more I breathe the harder I deal
It's what you learn to impress your friends
You catch your fix and the fun never ends

I can't say no, who's in control

Are you with me tonight, feels like we've been here before
Just one more time and then we'll kick this out the door
Are you with me tonight, cuz I can't feel this anymore
Live forever tonight, cuz that's all we've ever asked for

Show me a sign, that I'm not alone
Relapse, rewind
on and on and on
Crossed the line, I'm all but gone
Disaster taking over just what I need to feel more alive

Are you with me tonight, like we've been here before, are you with me tonight
Just one more time and then we'll kick this out the door
Are you with me tonight, cuz I can't feel this anymore
Live forever tonight, cuz that's all we've ever asked for
Track Name: Friends
FRIENDS by The Blackmail Seduction (all rights reserved)

Looking over photographs of my childhood days
seeing how much I've changed
Things were much simpler then, not much like today
but some things remain

My friends are here for today
they will never go away
My friends are here looking for tomorrow
but don't forget about yesterday

Sometimes we go our separate ways, and miles apart
but to me, we're still OK
We've been through it all, more than we should
but somehow we made our way

My friends are here for today
they will never go away
My friends are here looking for tomorrow
but don't forget about yesterday

One day we'll find ourselves a long way from here
Tonight we raise a toast to all that are near
Never will I feel down
when I look back at the friends I've found

And things may come between us every now and again
but no need to worry
Cuz everything we've seen and everywhere we've been
let's me tell the story

My friends are here for today
they will never go away
My friends are here looking for tomorrow
but don't forget about yesterday

Don't forget about yesterday
Track Name: War At Home
WAR AT HOME by The Blackmail Seduction (all rights reserved)

As the casualties mount
I crouch here behind enemy lines
Bitten tongue and self-doubt
A conscious choice to avoid all signs

Drag your dark waters some more
take your poison down with the ship
There are no winners in this war
on this degradation trip

You have so many ways to break a man

You fight your war I'll fight mine
Fight your war alone
There's no time for taking sides in a losing battle
You fight your war I'll fight mine
Fight your war alone
There are no winners in this war at home

Watch you slowly black the light
while I try to clear the haze
Set to wage the final strike
know full well the end of days

You have so many ways to break a man

You fight your war I'll fight mine
Fight your war alone
There's no time for taking sides in a losing battle
You fight your war I'll fight mine
Fight your war alone
No one's a winner in this war at home
