Track Name: We're All In This Together
We’re All In This Together
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI)


(Chorus):
We’re all in this together
We got a one-way ticket on the third rock from the sun
So since we’re all in this for better, .. or whatever ..
How ‘bout we just get over it -
And have some fun!

(I):
We don’t have to agree,
But we don’t have to be enemies!
We don’t have to hang out,
But we don’t have to quarrel and shout!
(Chorus):

(II):
We don’t have to cuddle and coo,
But we don’t have to hullabaloo!
We don’t have to love-at-first-sight,
But we don’t have to fight!
(Chorus):

(Bridge):
What’s so funny ‘bout shinin’ a light?
And where did we go so wrong?
What’s so hard about getting’ it right?
.. Lookin’ out for each other – and getting’ along?

(Chorus B):
We’re all in this together
We got a one-way ticket on the third rock from the sun
So since we’re all in this for better, .. or whatever ..
How ‘bout we just get over it -
And get along!

(III):
We don’t have to march arm-in-arm,
But we don’t have to sound the alarm.
We don’t have to see eye-to-eye,
But we don’t have to condemn and deny!
(Chorus):

(Tag):
How ‘bout we just get over it -
And have some fun!
How ‘bout we just get over it -
And get along!
Track Name: All-American Line Dance
All-American Line Dance
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI)


(I):
Weekday mornings, you can find us at work
The farmer, the teacher, the trucker, and clerk
While the rich get richer, we work like fools
We’re spinnin’ our wheels, because we don’t make the rules
We wouldn’t change it, if we had the chance
We’d do The All-American Line Dance.

(Chorus):
Don’t start thinkin’
Just keep drinkin’
That Kool-Aid
We made
Don’t examine it
Just keep crammin’ it
Down your throat
Sing it note-for-note
No matter what the season
Take a stance
Don’t even need a reason
Just chant the trance
Raise your drink – Stay in sync – Don’t think!
The All-American Line Dance.

(II):
Saturday mornin’, we can do what we wish
Yeah, we’re free – to watch TV – go to the game – or go fish
We’re on a Highway to Hell – Goin’ faster and faster
So we blame each other for the coming disaster
We wouldn’t change it, if we had the chance
We’d do The All-American Line Dance.
(Chorus):

(Bridge):
Lean to the left - Lean to the right
Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight
Yeah, we love our freedom, we’re a sight to behold
And we will fight for the right to do exactly what we’re told
(Guitar Solo):

(III):
On Sunday mornin’ – There’s no need to search
We all lined up in the pews, in Sunday best, at the church
All praisin’ and a-preachin’ – Doin’ just what we should
To thank the guy-in-the-sky, because we got it so good
We won’t change it, when we get the chance
We do The All-American Line Dance.
(Chorus):
(Tag):
The All-American Line Dance.
The All-American Line Dance.

Did You Think I Didn't Know
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
© 2016 Wild Moose Music (BMI)


(I):
Did You Think I Didn't Know
He'd be calling?
Did You Think I Didn't Know
The day would come, he'd stop and stare?
Did You Think I Didn't Know
You'd be waiting?
Or did you think I didn't care?

(Chorus):
When you kissed him, ... (Did You Think I didn't ..)
Soft and slow, ... (Did You Think I didn't ..)
When you missed him,
Did You Think I Didn't Know?
When you let him, ... (Did You Think Ididn't ..)
Touch you there, ... (Did You Think I didn't ..)
When you met him,
Did you think I didn't care?

(II):
Did You Think I Didn't Know
You were searchin'?
Did You Think I Didn't Know
That I never had a prayer?
Did You Think I Didn't Know
How much you wanted?
Or did you think I didn't care?

(Repeat Chorus):

(Bridge 1):
Why would I,
Want to hold you down?
Why would I,
Want to cheat you out of what you found?
Why would I,
Want to keep you chained to only me?
I don't want you chained,
I want you free!

(Repeat verse 1):

(Bridge 2):
Just know that it's not easy,
When it's true,
That the far, far better thing,
That any man could ever do,
For the one he loves the most,
Is to make himself a ghost.
Not because I don't;
Because I do.

(Repeat Verse 2):

(Repeat Chorus):

(Tag):
Did you think I didn't care?
Did you think I didn't care?
Did you think I didn't care?

Track Name: Price to Pay
Price To Pay
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI)


(I):
Go to school – Study hard
Learn a rule – Report card
Play well with others while you can
Graduate – Pick a career
Register – Sit here
Most important of all – Have a plan

(Chorus):
There’s a Price To Pay for dreamin’: “You’ll end up lonely and alone!”
And don’t they love to lay it on ya – like a curse?
The part they’re leavin’ out cut’s closer to the bone
There’s a Price To Pay for not dreamin’ – that’s worse.

(II):
Get a job – Persevere
Please the boss – Be sincere
Network with others – Advance
Buy some stuff – Buy some more
Don't forget what you're - workin' for
Most important of all – Don’t take a chance.
(Chorus):

(Bridge):
Put your eggs in a basket
Tend it well
Lay your bones in a casket
That’s where you’re headed – Time will tell
And when they gather around you
Does it really matter what they say?
In spite of all your plans
You die alone, anyway!

(III):
Go to school – Study hard
Learn a rule – Report card
Play well with others while you can
Graduate – Pick a career
Register – Sit here
Most important of all – don’t stray from the plan
(Chorus):

(Tag):
… Yeah, it’s worse (Yeah!) - It’s worse!

Never Ever Argue With An Elephant
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Huh!)
You should …
(Chorus):
Never Ever Argue With An Elephant
Because the facts will never change his mind
If he had evidence, he wouldn’t be an Elephant
So walk away – it’s just a waste of time
It’s such a waste of time!

(I):
They’re sayin’: “Wrong is right.”
Sayin’: “Day is night.”
Sayin’: “Black is white.”
It such a shame
They’re sayin: “Up is down.”
Sayin’: “Square is round.”
Sayin’: “Lost is found.”
They’re all the same! … That’s why you …
(Chorus):

(II):
They say: “The truth is lies.”
Sayin’: “Lows are highs.”
They say that: “Dumb is wise.”
They’re so confused.
They’re sayin’: “War is great.”
Sayin’: “Peace is hate.”
Sayin’: “Sleaze is straight.”
They’re bein’ used! … That’s why you …
(Chorus):

(Bridge):
You know they ought’a be embarrassed
They got it backwards for so long
Every single forward step – they fight against it
And when it comes to rights – they always get it wrong! ! … That’s why you …
(Chorus) (Repeat 1st Verse): (Chorus):

(Tag):
It’s just a waste of time!

Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI)


(I):
I’ve been tryin’ to face my fears
I’m tryin’ to look at the world in its face
Without blinking, but now it appears
There’s a terror that needs an embrace …

(Chorus):
So let’s go ..
And don’t hold on (Don’t hold on ..)
Let’s just fall ..
And keep on fallin’ (Keep on fallin’ ..)
Just let go ..
The Heart Of Darkness
Is callin’ ..
It’s callin’ ..

I’ve been tryin’ to mine this adventure
For the kernels inside of the shells
I’ve been tryin’ to tell you my future
Without understanding myself

What’s the point in a plan?
Let the rivers all run where they will
All I’m doin’ is all that I can ..

I’ve been tryin’ to face my fears …
Track Name: Guaranteed to Bleed
Guaranteed to Bleed
(Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor)
©2012 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(I)
In my Bleeding Madras shirt
And button-fly 501s
I stepped out on the stage
My journey had begun
I sang “World Without Love”
Made her turn her head
The prettiest girl in the room
Turned to me and said: (She said:)

(Chorus)
You’ll never get everything you want
You already have all that you need
If you get lucky, there’ll be moments of magic
But you’re .. Guaranteed to Bleed!

(II)
Sometimes to get along
It's tempting not to say it
He saw it on the setlist
Told us not to play it
We couldn't get permission
He told us to obey
But it was "Blowin' in the Wind"
So we played it anyway - (Chorus)

(III)
So we set out on the road
With our songs to see the world
We didn’t see much
But we sure did see some girls
Nights under the lights
Playin’ loud and keepin’ score
If I could do it different
I’d only do it more … (But) – [Chorus]:

(Bridge);
There will be stones unturned
There will be songs unsung
There will be promises broken
And deeds undone
There will be bitter disappointments
And dreams overdue
We rarely recognize 'em
When they do come true

(IV)
Now my bleeding Madras shirt
It's hangin’ on the wall
Between the miles and the memories
The ones that I recall
But I remember what she said
Her words of wisdom came to pass
Tonight to all you dreamers
I’ll raise my glass (.. and say.. ) [Chorus]:

(Intro):
She Knows
Now She Knows

(Verse 1):
She drove down, from her hometown
She drove all day long
With four friends in a car - oh and the ..
Radio was on
They smoked each other's cigarettes
They called each other names
She never should'a went there - woh ..

It didn't take long to find him
In fact with just one look

Took off each other's clothes
That's when she finally found out - woh
And now she knows

(Chorus 2):
Now She Knows
Now She Knows
Now She Knows
Now She Knows
She Knows -

Track Name: Scandalous
Scandalous
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2009 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Verse 1):
In a moment of magic
Your eyes met mine
The stars and planets all held their breath
While they all got right in line
In a moment of madness
Where two worlds collide
You took a chance on me
And walked a little on the Scandalous side

(Chorus 1):
You're so Scandalous
Daring and dangerous
Lovely and luscious
Precious and wondrous
You're so Scandalous

(Verse 2):
In a moment of mercy
You came to me
You made me promises
No one else could guarantee
In a moment of weakness
You let me inside
You told me secrets
Just a little on the Scandalous side

(Chorus 2):
You're so Scandalous
Daring and dangerous
Lovely and luscious
Precious and wondrous

(Bridge):
Let them say what they want to about us
Let them say what they will, they don't see
I don't care if it's true
Every moment with you
Is the best thing that's happened to me

(Last Chorus):
You're so Scandalous
Daring and dangerous
Lovely and luscious
Precious and wondrous
You're so Scandalous
This world's not big enough to handle us
No other lovers hold a candle to us
Baby, you're so Scandalous
So Scandalous
Baby, you're so Scandalous
Scandalous
Track Name: Allegory of the Cave
Allegory Of The Cave
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©1996 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Verse 1):
There’s a fire outside the cave
Throwing shadows on the wall
Sensations ride in on a wave
With implications for us all

(Bridge):
But my eyes don’t see what’s in front of me
To the real world, I’m blind
The light - the dark - the energy
They can be anything in my mind

(Chorus 1):
We are deluded
We never know
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up as we go.

(Verse 2):
There’s a madness in the cave
And it overcomes us all
This illusion’s all we save
To paint perceptions on the wall

(Bridge):
But my eyes don’t see what’s in front of me
To the real world, I’m blind
The light - the dark - the energy
They can be anything in my mind

(Chorus 2)
We are deluded
We never know
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up as we go. …
… We never know
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up …
We mistake what’s real for what’s unreal
And we’re makin’ it up as we go.
We’re makin’ it up as we go …
Track Name: No Man's Land
No Man’s Land
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©1996 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Verse 1):
Are we an accident?
Are we intentional?
Is there a reason?
Or are we rational?

(Chorus):
Are we just tiny clumps of carbon on an unimportant planet
Spinning in a Universe that’s cold and dying?
Or are we more what we appear to be – or not to be – to Hamlet?
What a piece of work is man? Or are we trying?
Welcome to No Man’s Land!
Welcome to No Man’s Land!

(Verse 2):
Is there cause?
Or only effect?
Are we certain of anything?
What can we accept? … (Chorus):

(Bridge):
Is there cause?
Or only effect?
Are we certain of anything?
What can we accept? … (Chorus):

Welcome to No Man’s Land!
I said: “Welcome to No Man’s Land!”

... (Modulated Chorus):
Track Name: Keep Keepin' On
Keep Keepin’ On
Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2006 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

“Hey! Hey!! Hey!!!

(Verse 1):
Take a man with emotions
Take a planet with oceans
Take a ride in a car
Or on a falling star
We’re all movin’ with the same kind of motions ..

(Chorus):
Keep Keep On Keepin’ On
Whatever you’re doin’
Keep Keep On Keepin’ On
If you’re stayin’ – stay!
Keep Keep On Keepin’ On
The path you’re persuin’
Keep Keep On Keepin’ ..
.. All the way ..

(Verse 2):
Take a star that is spinning
Take a tarnished guitarist that’s grinning
Ride beneath a balloon
Or take a trip to the moon
We all move the way we have since the beginning .. (Chorus):

(Bridge):
Every object in motion
Stays its course with pure devotion
Forever on
Unless a force abates it
Every object at rest
Will tend to do its best
To stay at rest,
Unless a force accelerates it .. (Chorus):
