Track Name: Inauguration Day 2017 (We're Not Leaving Town)
Inauguration Day 2017 (We’re Not Leaving Town)
by Todd Burge Jan 19, 1017

Pray if you pray
Or maybe meditate
On the state of a nation starting over
Over the hill
Or the hump, if you will
Or maybe we’re just climbing
Up up up

Our class is half full
And our hearts are broken
Yet hope is pumping out
So, we’re not leaving town
We’re not leaving town

So what can we do?
Are you feeling helpless too?
But just help those who
Might need more than you and I do?

Lift up a child
Pick up the down and out
Shoot a sunny ray in the way
Of some nasty cloud

Our class is half full
And our hearts are broken
Yet hope is pumping out
So, we’re not leaving town
We’re not leaving town

So, pray if you pray
Or maybe meditate
On the state of a nation starting over

Track Name: Talkin' Bowlin' Green Massacre Blues
I've got nothing
Track Name: The Times They Are A-Changin'
The Times They Are A-Changin'
Bob Dylan
Come gather around people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
And if your breath to you is worth saving
Then you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changing
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no telling who that it's naming
For the loser now will be later to win
Cause the times they are a-changing
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's the battle outside raging
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changing
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly aging
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
Cause the times they are a-changing
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slowest now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fading
And the first one now will later be last
Cause the times they are a-changing
Songwriters: Bob Dylan
The Times They Are A-Changin' lyrics

Track Name: Who Will Win? Who Will Lose?

Who will win? What’s it cost?
(The Nail’s In The Coffin) 10-11-16
By Todd Burge

I had to take a fall
As I was faking just how tall
I was, in a tale of spin
Too dizzy to sustain a win

Now I’m at a loss
As to who’s the boss
Who will win?
What’s it cost?

I know you heard me say
We’d make it great again
But now I know you can’t go back
To what we’re already in

Now I’m at a loss
As to who’s the boss
Who will win?
What’s it cost?
The story stuck on me so long
It left a stink
I tried and tried to blame my shame
And change the way you think

Now I’m at a loss
As to who’s the boss
Who will win?
What’s it cost?

So hand me that basket
And I’ll ride it straight to Hell
I won’t pass go
Nor will I ring that Liberty Bell

Now I’m at a loss
As to who’s the boss
Who will win?
What’s it cost?

Track Name: Hand Size Doesn't Matter
Hand Size Doesn’t Matter 3/4/2016
Written the morning after the Republican presidential debate.
The size of an individual’s hands doesn’t matter does it? We need to put our hands together.

Hear the hot wind blow
As the Tuesdays get super
It’s just so much steam
Keeping us in this stuper

The world is weighty
And it won’t get a lift
From some big money man
No matter the size of his hands

Big hands and small
We’ll need them all
To pick up the pieces
From our nasty nasty nasty nasty fall

So, look alive
High five
Lend your hand
As this land is your land

Speak up, say your piece
Don’t sit still, use your will
As this land is our land
Track Name: Comb Over a Big Bunch of Lies
Comb Over A Big Bunch of Lies
3-2-2016

Some want to cry out
Some want to leave
Some want to punch the face of their enemy
Just for what they believe
Some will take it lying down
Some will never let it die

The winds of change
Have blown a comb over
A big bunch of lies

We all remember
Like it was yesterday
All of the hatred
That ruled from state to state
But reason prevailed
On all that did divide

And now the winds of change
Have blown a comb over
A big bunch of lies

So, what should we do?
If not you, then who?
Stand up and speak out
Just share your mood
Think of the children
And who they look up to
Don’t sit in silence
With that anger in your eyes

As the winds of change
Blow this comb over
A big bunch of lies

The winds of change
Have blown a comb over
A big bunch of lies

Track Name: Love Conquers All Fifty States
Love Conquers All (50 States) by Todd Burge
6/26/2015
No longer may this liberty be denied to them
Love conquers all, conquers all
Who loves who, who cares?
As she loves her and he loves him
Love conquers all, conquers all

From Hawaii to Alaska
And the lower 48
Love conquers all
Love conquers all
Love conquers all 50 states

We’re all something greater now than we once were
Love conquers all, conquers all
Who loves who, who cares?
As he loves him and she loves her
Love conquers all, conquers all

From Hawaii to Alaska
And the lower 48
Love conquers all
Love conquers all
Love conquers all 50 states

From Justice Anthony Kennedy's majority opinion 6/26/15
"The Court now holds that same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry. No longer may this liberty be denied to them."
"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right."
"The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity. The petitioners in these cases seek to find that liberty by marrying someone of the same sex and having their marriages deemed lawful on the same terms and conditions as marriages between persons of the opposite sex."
"Far from seeking to devalue marriage, the petitioners seek it for themselves because of their respect—and need—for its privileges and responsibilities. And their immutable nature dictates that same-sex marriage is their only real path to this profound commitment."

Peace In Our West Virginia Valley
6/28/2016 by Todd Burge

I want to go back
Just one more time
If we only could
Would there be ….

Peace in the Valley
Do I see?

It happened so fast
We never knew what hit us
It took everything we had
And all that some might ever get

Chorus

Dad’s too proud to ask
And Mom has long since gone
And all that we have
I’m singin’ in this song

Chorus

A West Virginia morning
Is on the rise
With a dryness in our eyes
From the golden summer sun
Chorus
Track Name: This Is Ours To Fix
This is Ours to Fix
7/8/2016 by Todd Burge

How could our kids be seeing this?
All the things we should have missed
The mess that our
Great grandparents made
Is still alive and
Well,
It’s full of hate

There’s a hatred in our streets
There’s a hatred in our homes
If there’s a hatred in our hearts
They need to be broken
Before we know how to move on
Move on
Move on

Now, this is ours to fix
All the things our parents missed
And at the end of innocence
There must be some common sense
As, how could our kids be seeing this?
And at the end of innocence
There must be some common sense
Now, this is ours to fix
At the end of innocence
There must be some common sense
Now, this is ours to fix
Move on
Move on
Move on
