Track Name: Savior
Words and Music: Eddie Star, Kelly Charles, David Taub

When I was just a kid
I’d sit in front of the t.v.
Watching all those super-heros
And dreaming it was me.
Now I am almost grown-up
So many things I see
I’ve looked into this whole wide world
And seen life’s harsh reality

I feel your pain.
I feel your heartache.
I feel your sorrow.
I feel your outrage.


I am not your savior
I am not your superman
I’m not someone who could save your life


I wish I could be superman
The strong man of steel
Then I could save all of mankind
And all of societies wounds heal
Faster than a speeding bullet
I could fly higher than a plane
I could protect the innocent and the weak
From all the acts that are so insane


I wish I could be batman
The hooded avenger of the night
I’d cruise around in my Bat-mobile
And turn all the wrongs into rights
But I am only a young man
Made of flesh and blood
I can’t even save myself
From this wave of evil crude.

Track Name: Bleed
Bleed
Words and Music: Eddie Star, Anthony Griffith, Fred Schreuders

Verse #1​

I can see you standing there trying to act like you don’t care.
Pretending like it doesn’t hurt when all sycophants just treat you like dirt.
I can understand how you feel when people inflict wounds that are hard to heal.


Chorus
Watch out, better beware
Watch out, better take care

They are out to control they are out to lead
On your weakness is what they feed.
And then they stand there and watch you bleed.

Verse # 2

I can see the sadness in your eyes as they stand there just telling you lies.
They think they know what is best for you but in reality they haven’t a clue.
They always question your identity with friends like that who needs an enemy.


Repeat Chorus

Guitar Solo

Verse # 3

Don’t throw all your burdens on me I can’t save you I’m not a remedy.
Don’t be sorry don’t let them start don’t let anyone take your heart.
You just have to fight you have to stay true cause no one else will believe in you.

Repeat chorus

Track Name: Victim of Circumstance
Victim of Circumstance
Writer: Eddie Star
Verse #1

Can you move through time and space?
Into a world another space.
Where moments are given back to you.
What would you say? What would you do?
If this chance were given back to you.
What would you do?

Chorus

One time
One Chance
Victim of Circumstance.
One time
One chance
Victim of circumstance.

Verse #2

Can’t move forward when you’re looking back.
Can’t feel strong when you’re under attack.
I’ve lived fast and moved too slow.
There are so many things I don’t know.
What’s it like when your world dies
What’s it like when there is nothing left inside.


Chorus


Guitar Solo

Love is a Four Letter Word
Writers: Eddie Star - Kelly Charles
Verse #1

Love is a four-letter word
Crazy story that I ever heard
Love is a cheap motel.
It’s a lit cigarette and a fond farewell.
Love is a four-letter word
Craziest story I ever heard.

Chorus

Love means till death do us part
Then I give you my heart
Love means we never say goodbye
The day you do I lay down die.

Verse #2

Love is a four-letter word
Craziest story I ever heard
Love means I get back to my wife
Thank you baby but I have my normal life.
Love is a four-letter word
Craziest story I ever heard.

Track Name: Rejected
Rejected
Writers: Eddie Star - David Spielman - Kelly Charles
Intro: Chorus

Verse #1

I am poison to your heart
The bitter and sweet tares me apart
Fatal charm with a sick smile
I’ve had my taste of reality for a while
Shut me out and put me down
I’m in society’s lost and found.


Chorus

Rejected, infected
Rejected, disconnected
Rejected, affected
Rejected, disrespected

Verse #2

Can you look inside of me.
Does it scare you what you see
Mixed up youth, an aging freak.
Emotions drained and I’m feeling weak
In this spring time of my life
There is nothing but chaos and strife.


Chorus

Guitar solo

Verse #3
I am pleasure I am pain.
Life is too short to be mundane.
I walk on I walk alone
Trying figure this world on my own.
A voice is screaming inside of me
Saying “this can’t be reality”

Track Name: Numb
Numb
Writers: Eddie Star - Anthony Griffith - Calvin Popejoy - Kelly Vaught

Verse #1

Mental shutdown I can’t think.
If I thought about what’s going on.
It would drive me to drink.
I just can’t deal with reality
I’m not a recluse or naïve.
I’m just trying to protect my sanity.

Chorus

Shot myself with Novocain.
My heart and soul are Numb.
I can’t feel the pain.
Shot myself with Novocain.
I feel like I’m going insane.

Verse #2

Crime and violence everywhere
None of the politicians seem to care.
Ask yourself don’t you feel?
Or do you deny anything that’s real.
Sometimes life can be so strange
A revolution is coming I can feel a change.

Chorus

Guitar solo

Verse #3

Every time I turn on the TV news
I have to change the channel cause I get the blues
I have to be numb I just can’t cope.
Sometimes I wonder if there is any hope.
Sometimes life can be so strange
A revolution is coming I can feel a change.

Chorus

Ad lib till end.

Track Name: 2017
2017
Writers: Eddie Star - Calvin Popejoy
Verse #1

You’ve got me caught in your groove.
I’m stuck in a file cabinet and I can’t move.
You can’t figure out where to place me.
Because I don’t have a definite identity.
I guess I have a problem with society.
But you can’t tell me who I have to be.

Chorus

I’m 2017
I’m caught in between.
I’m not a kid I’m not grown up
I’m caught in between
Hey man I’m 2017.

Verse #2

Put your evil thoughts in my head.
Rumors and lies all the crap you said.
Go ahead destroy my self-esteem.
But you can’t take away my dream.
Go and spit out your words of hate.
You can’t destroy me it’s too late.

Chorus

Guitar solo

Verse #3

Names, identity, money, social class.
All the old rules tied to the past.
You can be what ever you want to be.
Go and create your reality.
Get your evil thoughts out of my head.
Forget about everything society has said.

Chorus

Villain
Words and Music: Eddie Star, Kelly Charles, Renee Jacobs
Verse #1

I think you like to start trouble.
I think its part of your game.
I think the truth is your enemy.
There is always someone else to blame.
You think the world revolves on your terms.
And to me it’s such a shame.

Chorus

What am I going to do?
I just can’t communicate with you.
You criticize everything I do
Yeah you do.

You make me feel like I’m a
You make me feel like I’m a
You make me feel like I’m a
You make me feel like I’m a Villain

Verse #2

You don’t have any common sense.
To you there is no right or wrong
You like to play the victim
And say “You just don’t belong”
Why is your life my fault
You have made your decisions all along.

Chorus

Track Name: Generation Zero
Generation Zero
Writers: Eddie Star - Kelly Charles

Verse #1

Civilization dies it’s all done.
No more ideas nothing has won.
Corporate control your thoughts are gone.
Why don’t they realize what’s going on.
A generation of mindless clones.
No revolutions to call their own.

Wake up, Wake up
Wake up, Wake up

It’s the blind leading the blind.

Chorus

Welcome to generation zero. (Repeat four times)

Verse #2

Follow every fad and trend.
No ideals left to defend.
Close your eyes to reality.
The media creates your fantasy.
Exploit old ideas from the past.
The meanings gone nothing moves fast.

Repeat chorus

Guitar solo

Verse #3

Sit and swallow all their lies.
Church and state try to disguise.
Special interest has their hold.
Take the money they have control.
The silent majority sits and waits.
To be told what to hate.

Chorus
