Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - Woman In A Cloak
Woman in a Cloak

There was a woman in a cloak,
she had the antidote

I had to come on inside and see,
she said 'let me see your palms, I believe your darkness has come,
can't see the forest for the trees. Confused in the wilderness, chaos like the sun. Is it peaceful there?'

She said, 'lay low on the table and breath'
the sugar she talked put me to sleep,
I climbed through mountains, trees and swam the seas,
calling out thunder, lightning in my dreams

When I awoke there was a flower that I'd ignored for far too long

There was a woman in a cloak,
she had the antidote

I had to come on inside and see.
Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - So Complex
So Complex

So complex, she's become
So complex, she's become

"I'm happy," she said.
But, that's not what was in her head.
I should have known she never added up.

I've been such a blinded fool,
secure she'd never keep me in the dark.
Since she's gone and flipped the switch.
She said, "Face the truth. You need me much more than I need you"

She said, "one last time,"
Made me smile when I wanted to die,
a bitter contradiction, so sublime
Calculated woman,
says, "It's me not you. You don't love me. You just think you do."

Should have known she never added up
So Complex
So Complex
So Complex
So Complex
Track Name: Class War
Class War
Rent their House 
Rent their Money 
I need a lot more to live 
than they leave me 
yeah I need a lot more to live
Lost years in a moments doubt 
Now bankers own me inside and out 
Rich men cashing in , Basking in the plight of the poor, 
"What A bore", you say
"It's nothing new, the way that it is, 
It's never going to change, 
We work to pay their way, as it is." 
Class warfare that's their game
It's an old saw, 
The poor pay more, it's a bore but hey, 
It's just the truth don't let it get you down. 
We're low caste, indentured. 
Our politicians an talking heads drive in messages consoling while controlling us more. We're their whore. 
We say, "It's nothing new the way that it is. It's never going to change. We work to pay their way, as it is. " Class warfare, that's their game
It's all right on 
We get by on what we get by on.
Track Name: Brief Interlude With a God
Brief Interlude with a God

When you picked me up in your car to go down
and you told me I could wear your coat cause it was cold,
well I knew I better get ready for the long drive

I thought that you'd been counting on something,
that just might not be happening to you

I thought it'd be the same old story that you told me
in your bedroom,
that you could only go so far,
and how everything, everything got in your way

Didn't know just who you were, or where you fit in
and didn't know just who you were or were you fit in and

Instead you proceeded to tell me about a weird dude,
outside your house,
he was painting the trees gold and flying with wings on

He was opening up portholes to galaxies in the lawn

As you stood in disbelief, well he saw you
he saw you and he winked
and then he beckoned you to come,
but oh no you just couldn't come and

and then he beckoned you to come,
but oh no you just couldn't come and

He even created a pony with a saddle and your name on it

Well I just laughed and laughed,
and said 'tell me more, tell me more'

and the finish is that he hovered above the ground smiling,
smiling and winking at you,
and then he just disappeared without a trace,
trace into outer space
Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - I Would Eat His Heart
I Would Eat His Heart

My flashback theater shows
things that i tried so
hard to forget

the movies never end
screens are lit up inside of my head

reflecting me
in violent dirty scenes
I'm panicking
All the time

I re-live again
the smell of him
and the taste

I feel his weight
his fists, his mouth, his hate
next to my face all the time

if what they say is true
we'll always be the stars
of the psycho films in my head
wish i could change my parts
I would take him apart with my hands
i would take him apart
I would take him apart with my hands
I would take him apart
And I would eat his heart
Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - Swing
Swing

Spent the winter being poor,
Smokin and drinking, and not much more

Tried to find myself some medicine,
tried to get back with and old fling

It made me feel worse about everything

Everything, everything, everything, everything

Angels told me I was getting old
I couldn't use the same mistakes anymore

Father told me to be a man,
what does it mean to be a man

I'll build a castle to live in
I'll build a castle to hang myself in

From the gallows I'll hang and swing
From the gallows I'll hang and swing,
Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - The Glow of the Sun
The Glow Of The Sun

i can't remember
Who locked me up inside
it's been so long since radiation's come

without a window
or static from the outside world
I await the earths return to normal

I wanna feel
the glow of the sun, the fear of the outside
I wanna feel
the glow of the sun, the fear of the outside
I wanna feel
the glow of the sun, the fear of the outside

i must've been unconcious
when i was tucked away
inside this shelter deep below the ground

They put me in here
to keep me safe from the outside
no the inside's made me feel so crazy

I wanna feel
the glow of the sun, the fear of the outside
I wanna feel
the glow of the sun, the fear of the outside
I wanna feel
the glow of the sun, the fear of the outside
Disappear
Disappear
Disappear
Track Name: Silverhawk - I Only Wanna Rock n Roll
I Only Wanna Rock n Roll

There's enough hate in this world
to put us all down for the count
there's enough pain intros world
to put us all into perpetual doubt
uh huh uh huh
uh uhu uh huh
oh oh oh oh oh

I Only wanna rock n roll
and have a good time baby
I only wanna rock n roll
and have a good time, yeah

There's nothing' else in this world
that makes me feel half as good as you do
no there's nothing else i this whorld
it's the only thing that I wanna do

uh huh uh huh
uh uhu uh huh
oh oh oh oh oh

I Only wanna rock n roll
and have a good time baby
I only wanna rock n roll
and have a good time, yeah

Let's just forget everything for a moment or two
I can take you for a trip on my rocket ship
Far above the world

I Only wanna rock n roll
and have a good time baby
I only wanna rock n roll
and have a good time, yeah
Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - Criminal
Criminal

Hey Hey
What'd ya do?
Hey Hey
they're looking for you

are you afraid they're going to find you,
guilty as chraged?
Their voices carry

The news of your hiding place,
the news of your crime
you've been an underground,
figure for a time.

But now that's all run out.

It's harder and harder to be anonymous in such a small town.
They'll root through the gutters to the tops of the hills they'll hunt you down.

Their voices carry

You never thought it would come to this did you?
You were sure you'd steal away.
But your legs are tired and aching
Every friend's forsaken you
forsaken you
forsaken you
forsaken you

Hey Hey
What'd ya do?
Hey hey
They're looking for you

Are you afraid they're going to find you
the voices you've heard
you know when they find you
they'll see justice is served
their voices carry
Track Name: Silverhawk featuring Sam and John C. Densmore - The Plains Behind the Hills
The Plains behind the Hills

I'm traveling the plains behind the hills,
the place where your handsome pills have taken a hold on me,
on me

Waiting for a light that you can shine,
because the shadows are very dark,
and I've been alone for far too long,
too long

Stars like memories they hold my faith,
seems like infinity,
how long must I wait

so that the sun may shine on my horizons,
so that the sun may shine on my tomorrows

Took me in and tore me apart,
you drugged me and left me in the dark,
I should've know right from the start I was dealing
with the hardest of hearts

Couldn't find my way back home,
you drugged me and left me all alone,
should've known right from the start I was dealing
with the hardest of hearts

Stars like memories they hold my faith,
seems like infinity,
won't your memory fade

so that the sun may shine on my horizons,
so that the sun may shine on my tomorrows
