Track Name: Invisible Man (For Michael Brown)
I was there in the front of the square
When the protest turned a riot
Guns and tanks and the caucasian ranks
And a young man left to die

Just another invisible man
Another invisible man

His body lay in the sun all day
As the white clouds drifted by
He didn't know how soon he'd go
But he was not surprised

Just another invisible man
Another invisible man

Slyly and so quietly
A snake slid through the grass
Unbeknownst we started for home
Bare feet and stepping fast

Just another invisible man
Another invisible man

They'll spin it left and right
Til there's no sense of sight
But they left him there to die
A country finally waking
From a dream that's long been breaking
'Cause they left him there to die
And they'll leave you there to die
And they'll leave us there to die

I was there in the front of the square
When the protest turned a riot
Guns and tanks and the caucasian ranks
And a young man left to die

Just another invisible man
Another invisible man
Track Name: Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her

Just because I don't rape her
Or holler on the street at her
Doesn't mean I understand her
Or am doing anything to help her.
What can I say to men about her?
We're all broken and we're losing her
We're all jealous and insecure about her
Our power seems nothing next to her

Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her

The power to conceive belongs to her
The power to lie with another belongs to her
The power to lie about it belongs to her
The power to deny us belongs to her
We're led to believe we can't talk like her
Share our feelings or love like her
But it's the feelings that make us hurt her
And most of the hurting's not done by her

Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her

I had a shot once at feeling one with her
I let her down and deceived her
I was not the man in the dreams of her
I was just a boy who wanted to love her
It's this dance I do for her
To search myself that I may deserve her
Once I saw love in the eyes of her
Not a day goes by that I don't remember her

Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her
Her, Her, Her

Track Name: Am I Old?
I wake this morning
With the memories coming fast
All of the people
And the places flashing past

Oh my god, is it true?
Am I old?
Am I old?

And will I ever
Fall in love in the same way?
And though I'm stronger now
My hair begins to gray

Oh my god, has it come?
Am I old?
Am I old?

All this time as I've
Walked so blind
Dreaming of a time
When I would fly

Someday I'll wake to find
That life has passed me by
And as I look into
The coffins of my eyes

Will I say at last
"I am old"
"I am old"
"I am old"
"I am old"
Track Name: Let Them In
Once more, out through the door
What will await you there?
Unknown, still to be shown
It's yours to call your own

Once you know you've found a friend
Let them in
Let them in
Throw your caution to the wind and
Let them in
Let them in
Let them in

Today, no one can say
If it will go your way
Be strong, keep keepin' on
Only you can sing your song

Once you know you've found a friend
Let them in
Let them in
Throw your caution to the wind and
Let them in
Let them in
Let them in
