Track Name: Be Joyful (January)
It was never easy in the morning
It was a struggle in the night
There were shadows in the dark
And I couldn't face light
The preacher said it over again and again
And my folks they said the same and I tried to fit in

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life

So I ran in the morning and I ran in the night
Into the dark away from the light
I'm not saying that you lied
But it just wasn't true
'Cause it never worked for me
When it seemed to work for you

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life

So it doesn't matter if its morning
It doesn't matter if its night
I don't care if it's dark
I don't care if it's light
Every day's the same all the days are gray
And those words, those words they never go away

To be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Be joyful child it's a good life
Such a good life
Track Name: Tyler (February)
Tyler when you left for the Army
I figured they'd send you off to war
But either way it was a chance worth taking
Because things here are worse than they were before

Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring

I always thought if you'd get in trouble
You'd double down and fight them off
Like you did before when we were younger
It'd take more than an army to make you stop

Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring

And I saw your dad in the diner, he says your mother still stays inside
But all in all she is better, all she needs is more time

In July when we were last together
We smoked and drank and fished all night
Like the old days when we were younger
Back when the future seemed so bright

Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring
Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring
Let freedom ring, like it did back then
Let freedom ring, let it ring again
Let freedom ring
Track Name: Tel Aviv (March)
Waves of anger took me down
And I gave into fear
Now you lift me up onto higher ground
I act like you aren't here

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you

Hallelujah I've had enough
But now I've got a choice
About the time that I lost my soul
Is when I found my voice

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you

Mold me make me take me
Far from the places I know
Deliver me from evil
Let your spirit show

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you

Well I danced on a beach in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Well I danced on a street in Tel Aviv
Far from Jerusalem
Surrounded by the enemy with you
Track Name: Oh My Friends (April)
Oh my friends I need help
I've got thoughts in my head
There are pictures that can't be spoken
There are words that can't be said

All the creatures in the oceans
All the critters on dry land
Living things up in the heavens
We've gotta do the best we can

Oh my friends it's just survival
In the mornings when I rise
And when do one seems to notice
It shouldn't take me by surprise

All the creatures in the oceans
All the critters on dry land
Living things up in the heavens
We've gotta do the best we can

Oh my friends it would be funny
If it weren't just so sad
Because I know I wouldn't trade
Anything for what you have

All the creatures in the oceans
All the critters on dry land
Living things up in the heavens
We've gotta do the best we can

All the creatures in the oceans
All the critters on dry land
Living things up in the heavens
We've gotta do the best we can
Track Name: Angeline (May)
There was a light in the darkness
It wouldn't let me pass by
It pulled me from the shadows
Then it lifted me high

But I think you came to save me Angeline
There was a fire in your soul like I had never seen
Came to save me Angeline
To go into this world

And it's a long road to freedom
Full of death and decay
And love is hard to find
But you showed me the way

Came to save me Angeline
There was a fire in your soul like I had never seen
Came to save me Angeline
To go into this world

Sometimes the lights that are brightest
Oh they don't last too long
And you shone like the sun
But then one day you were gone

I think you came to save me Angeline
There was a fire in your soul like I had never seen
Came to save me Angeline
To go into this world
Track Name: C'mon Good People (June)
C'mon good people you're moving fast
Building something that may not last
Someone's gotta be here when the world goes black
Someone's gotta be here to bring us back
Someone's gotta be here

C'mon good people can't you see
All of your freedoms don't make you free
Someone's gotta be here when things go bad
Someone's gotta be here for the faith we had
Someone's gotta be here

C'mon good people you're passing by
Your brothers and sisters are out to dry
Someone's gotta be here when the good times end
Someone's gotta be here when the sky falls in
Someone's gotta be here

Someone's gotta be here when the world goes black
Someone's gotta be here to bring us back
Someone's gotta be here
Track Name: All My Sons And Daughters (July)
For a time we were together for a time I thought you’d do it right
But the moment came to break you and your weakness came into the light

All my sons and daughters will cut you down
All my sons and daughters keep coming

When it’s over you once told me when it’s over you will be there by my side
But you are wrong 'cause I’m not finished even if I’m gone you’re gonna have to hide

All my sons and daughters will cut you down
All my sons and daughters keep coming

In a moment I’ll stop talking in a moment I’ll be swinging in the air
But the people won’t be silenced they will rise and will not fall into despair

All my sons and daughters will cut you down
All my sons and daughters keep coming
All my sons and daughters will cut you down
All my sons and daughters keep coming
All my sons and daughters will cut you down
All my sons and daughters keep coming
