Tonic Waiting For The Light To Change

Brazen is love’s redeemer

When you have so far to go

It loves the true believer

For the innocence they own

Life is good Life is grand

When you’re sittin’ on top of the world

Life is good when it’s in your hands your hands

And nobody can change your world

I’m just waiting for the light to change

I’m just waiting for the light to change

I’m just waiting for the light to change

I’m just waiting

All my prize possessions

That I thought I needed so

Dragged me down on a razor

With a heaviness they tow

always searching for a love that’s in bloom

it’s a warm and soft embrace

Hoping you’ll never be lonely again

It’s a fear that you just can’t face

[CHORUS]

Life is good and life is grand

When you’re sitting on top of the world

Life is good when it’s in your hands your hands

And nobody can change your world

[CHORUS]

I’m just waiting, I’m just waiting,

I’m just waiting, I’m just waiting

Tonic Mr. Golden Deal

Swallow your pride

Make way for the new bride

Holding your tongue

When they call another winner

Oh there is more to this life

Tell me how does she feel

She’s like the wind

That boy couldn’t sail

He says I’ve washed these decks for years

I’ve carried those pails

Tell me how does she feel

Does she hold you in the night

Does she tell you everything’s gonna be alright

Hey Mr. Golden Deal

How does she feel

Captain oh my captain

Steer the first mate true

The men they sing a song of fear

Ghosts of ships who failed before

And the captain he is laughing

You can’t control the sea

She will always do as she pleases

It’s her nature to be free

And oh there is more to this life

Hey Mr. Golden Deal

Tell me how does she feel

Do you hold her in the night

Do you tell her everything’s gonna be alright

Tonic Bigot Sunshine

Big wings

And small waters

Carry me back home

Small minds

Stand protected under bigot sunshine

I’m not alone

But I’m far from home

You can never go home again

You can never go home again

Main street

Standing naked on the Fourth of July

Down stream

All the maniacs on my face they spy

I’m not alone

But I’m far from home

You can never go home again

You can never go home again

You can never act the way that you did back then

I’m not alone

But I’m far from home

You can never go home again

You can never go home again

You can never act the way that you did back then

You can never act the way that you did back then

When you were just a little boy

Tonic Knock Down Walls

You killed me when you came walking down the sidewalk

Saying everything was fine

Dressed up like a wife of a life I’ll never have It’s so easy to fool me

You can turn me on

You can turn me off

I’ve had enough of that little boy sandbox stuff

Love you wanted to try

For a life you’re willing to buy

I

Knock down walls for you

Cause I need you

You always grab a hold of the ones you know you can change

Just a group of loner zeros who will play your game

Something tells them that their luck is gonna change

Round and round you drag them down

So don’t tell me I’ve gone crazy

You’re the one who’s trying to fuckin change me

I

Knock down walls for you

Cause I need you

I

Knock down walls for you

Cause I want you

Hurt me, break me make me fall

Crush my heart force me to crawl

Show me love is never real

The wait is worth the pain you feel

Life you wanted to try

For a love you’re willing to buy

I

Knock down walls for you

Cause I need you

I

Knock down walls for you

Cause I need you

I knock down walls for you

Tonic Soldier’s Daughter

It’s the way he looks at you

That says to me

This isn’t over

From the outside looking in

You see there’s nothing sacred here

Nothing sacred

You can bend

But you can’t break

For the reasons out of our control

You try to make it roll

Like a dice away

But you say that you’re all empowered here

This is obviously not clear enough

To me

You can bend

But you can’t break

Hey little girl keep dancing

Hey little girl keep dancing alone

‘Cause there’s not enough time in your day

To keep you here

The soldier’s daughter

Did your daddy

Did your daddy hurt you

Did he make you feel bad

Did he poison your views

With the water he was raised on

Oh your father’s son says hang on

Hang on

Hey little girl

Keep dancing

Hey little girl

Keep dancing alone

‘Cause there’s not enough time in your life

To stay here

So over the hills he’d climb

Just to see her there in time

Just to watch the sun shine through her dress

The sweet soldier’s daughter

The sweet soldier’s daughter

Tonic Top Falls Down

He lays down in silence

Killing communication

Any pride is pointless

In these situations

So she’s gonna find a rider

Because she can’t love a radio flyer

ooh you never give love

So the top falls down

Spread your wings and fly away

My love

She said she’s gotta have her freedom

From the one who denies her

From the builder of strong fences

From the one who kills his senses

When you’re sleeping under water

Breathing has no purpose

She said she’s looking for a rider

Because she can’t love a radio flyer

[CHORUS]

Oh to look, Into the sun

To see the shame, In everyone

So back I stand, From want so near

To be controlled, By what I fear

[CHORUS]
