Track Name: Time To Rise ( video mix )
Time to Rise

I've reached the edge
My wits are at their end
Been pushed to the floor
But I'm getting back on my feet
I won't take anymore

Gonna get on
Gonna get on the horse and ride
Ride on
Not coming down no
Gonna leave my
Leaving all my doubt behind
Gonna get off the ground
Gonna turn it around
Hear my battle cry it’s time to rise

I hung the rope
Tied around my Demon's throat
Hang him high but not outta sight
So I can see where I'm from
And why I've gotta rise

Chorus
Solo

Track Name: She's My Rockstar
Rockstar

She never turns the radio down
If you wanna speak you better
Learn how to yell
She thinks that Sid and Nancy were the cutest things alive
But I swear if she'd look in the mirror
She'd have to change her mind

Her eyes are brighter than that moment at a Skynyrd show
When all the lighters come out
After Free Bird starts to roll
Her smile makes Grand Funk Railroad seem not quite so grand
She's my rockstar
And I'm her biggest fan

She don't want no fancy diamond ring
She'll be content with just some old burnt CDs
She'll take that guitar from me
Play it just as mean
Its gotta be the most amazing thing I've ever seen

Chorus

Bridge:
Everyday she’s writing
A new lyric to our song
And she knows
I'll always be there to sing along

Solo
Chorus x2

Track Name: It Is What It Is
It Is What It Is

Well I have known you for far too long
Used to get under my skin but now those days are gone
I don't know how you sleep in the bed that you've made
When you’re wrapped up in your lying conniving scheming ways

(Is what it is)
Stab my back
with your black tooth grin
(That's the way it goes)
Come running back
Try to make amends
(Is what it is)
Break my trust
I don't believe a word you spit
You fooled me once and you fooled me again
It aint what it aint
But it is what it is

Some people have demons
You're an evil all your own
An infectious parasite
Taking flesh right off the bone
Take all you want from me
I will not blink an eye
Son I'm done with the way you always waste my time

Solo
Chorus
Out
Track Name: Mama Don't Cry
Mama Don't Cry

I'm packed and ready
Ready to go
My steps are steady
Hope the pain don't show
Tears me up just watching you cry
But a mans gotta do
What a mans gotta do
And mama this aint goodbye

Mama don't cry
Mama please don't cry
You've gotta place way down deep
In this ramblin heart that never sleeps
Mama don't cry

The moon light passed across my face
By the end of tonight I'll be gone from this place
I've been a rebel
Since the day I was born
A little bit crazy
But I roll like a rolling stone

Mama don't cry
Mama please don't cry no

Oh mamma don’t cry no

Oh mama mama mama mama mama mama please don’t cry no more oh don’t cry no more no

Don’t cry don't cry don't cry no more

Out
Track Name: Heaven
Heaven

That train is coming round the bend
It's here to take you home
I know that all things have to end
I can not let you go
You're the one who made me who I am
A little piece of you
New life brought up by your hand

What's it like in heaven
Is it peaceful there
Are there wings on your back
And a halo on your head
What's it like in heaven oh
Will you meet me at the gates
When my day comes
And I head your way

You always knew just what to say
But you never said good bye
I never heard a cry for help
I guess I'll never know why
I guess I'm finally at peace
I never was one much for fate
But you gave me reason
A reason to believe

Chorus

Bridge:
Our memories of you will never pass
And our love for you will always last

Solo

What's it like in heaven oh
Will you meet me at the gates
When my day comes
And I head your way

What's it like
(I really wanna know)
What's it like
(I really wanna know)
What's it like
In heaven
What's it like
(In heaven)
What's it like yeah
What's it like in heaven yeah
