Track Name: Better Not Ask
Written by Danny Nichols

I've trekked across paths, I've run across yards
I've been to the gypsies with their tarot cards
Questioned the future, What's in it for me?
The witch she just scowled said, "You'd rather not see."

Those that are good are better off knaves
And those that are free are better off slaves
There was a reason for the tears you shed
Since you must live you're better off dead

Live in a glass house as the world looks in
Stand in judgement for a life of sin
Through turmoil and deception my life has spanned
Be riding in a hearse much sooner than planned

Soon as we're born we're dying away
And all bright tomorrows fade to yesterdays
From life's stage banners have been ripped
A halcyon glow becomes a morbid crypt

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
If I stand on the edge please give me a push
For those who have power will finish undone
But better than dreamers who end up with none

There soars the eagle completing his task
Why must I live, said you better not ask
Why must I live, said you better not ask
Track Name: Jet Black Chevette
Written by Donna DeLia

He winked and asked if I'd like a ride
I smiled right back and climbed inside
Seats of leather, scoop of chrome
He said, "Where to?" "Anywhere but home."

Blaring Led Zepplin as we drove to the docks
My long hair blowing out the T-tops
Ruby-eyed silver skull on the shifter
I said, "I think we'll get along fine, Mister."

Chorus: x 2
Jet black
Four speed
Chevette

Curvy fenders glinting in the sun
Catching the attention of everyone
Mag wheels hugging the road
I can't wait to get you alone

I leaned in and whispered this gets me hot
He found a private place to stop
And as he spread a blanket on the sand
I strode off, keys in hand

To my

Chorus x 2
Track Name: My Addiction
Written by Donna DeLia

You're an addiction
Some kind of poison drug
I gotta break away
Or else I'll drown in your love

I know you're bad for me
And it's probably a sin
You walk by; you're like a magnet, Baby
Draw me in

Feels so good when I am with you
Then I'm so ashamed
Obsessed! Can't get you off my mind
When someone says your name

More I have, the more I want you
Once is never enough
Just one glance and I feel faint
Though I try to be strong

My head's spinning
Gotta have you, Darling, next to me
Sometimes I really hate you
'Cause I can't break free

You know I try to fight it
Only to give in
Please, please I beg of you
For once let me win

You're an addiction
Some kind of poison drug
I gotta break away
Or else I'll drown in your love

I know you're bad for me
And it's probably a sin
You walk by; you're like a magnet, Baby
Draw me in

You're an addiction

You're my addiction

You're an addiction
Track Name: The War
Written by Donna DeLia

A new day is rising
Fresh and new
See sun beams
Breaking through
Feel that chill
Smell the morning dew
Shame it has to be
The last for you

I gave you all I had
Told you I'd be true
Funny I'd expect
The same of you
I hope that it was worth it
As we come unglued
Your tryst will be quite costly
For your lover, too

Chorus:
We could've had a good life
I would've made you my own
But my dreams are shattered
By your heart of stone
Promises broken
Love lost and gone
Though the battle is yours, Dear
The war I have won

Hush now stop your crying
You think I care?
I'm well-versed in coldness
By your lover there
Smile for one last picture
Take a lock of hair
Before I raze the building
Give the neighbors a scare

Chorus

The war I have won

Bridge:
So you had yourself a ball
Never foresaw your fall
Didn't think I heard those calls
And now you've lost it all

Chorus

The war I have won

The war I have won
