All She Wants Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 She is sometimes at night on a ferry ride Peacefully crossing to the other side Then something turns on her hunger And it's wave after wave of what she needs to survive But it's all she loves and it's all she wants She's got to ride it cause she's not prepared to jump And it's all she knows and it's all she needs She knows she'll get it as long as she believes Hey babe, they never saved the best for the last You know the best go so fast You know it's quickly come and it's quickly go Every time it's some hidy ho, hidy ho What does that mean now hidy ho Anybody know, anybody know They make it and wrap it And then they take it and blast it And then they put it on sale And you just gotta have it And it's nothing old and it's nothing new But what else is a consumer to do And it's all she loves and it's all she wants Don't question it with logic no she's just got to taste it And it's all she knows and it's all she needs The devil's in the doubters you just got to believe Hey yeah, they'll never let her get her share Now she's finally down on the final line Now it's nothing more but dragging time It's supposed to be like some freedom ride It's supposed to be like some freedom ride Like some freedom ride to the other side Nobody told her it was a gonna sag down the shoulder Hey it's not like that on the TV screen No it's a little more crispy and it's a little less green But it's all she but knows and it's all she needs She's got to have it before it's time to leave Yeah it's all she loves and it's all she wants They say it's heaven but it's just the same old drunk Hey ho, better hurry up before they go

I'm A Balloon Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 I'm a balloon, floating away I'd come back, it's just that The winds aren't blowing that way Heading south or heading north I’ve got no conception of direction So I can never be off course It seems like I'm leaving But I never touched down I just breezed in on a whim And since then, I've just bin, blowing around I'm a balloon, filled with hot air Keeps me thinking like I'm looking Like I'm getting somewhere Got to keep on moving Busy on my way I might be going around in circles Yeah yeah but what the hey Blowing through conversations Where thoughts shoot off like guns It's like watching little animations That quite honestly should have been could have been a lot more fun His and hers, yours and mine Seems like we've been blowing that game For a long, long, long time Like a run away carriage With no one holding the reigns But what you gonna do When there's really no one Really no one there to blame I'm a balloon, floating somewhere I might not know where that is But that don't mean that I don't care Gotta keep on keeping on As long as I’ve a voice to sing my song The only way to escape a lie Is to meet it head on

Almost In The Clear Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 We're almost in the clear We're almost in the clear It was a long hard road getting us here But we're almost in the clear There was all that getting up early stuff And the turf and the tuff And that grumbling gruff And the dirt and the grim And the your back and mine And the not much further, further to climb There was the spending of money That wasn't very funny The tightening the belt The rumble in the tummy The day after day And the no other way But we didn't give up so now we can say All the lessons we learnt All the paths we crossed The swearing up and down That we weren't really lost The humbling effect of what you never expect The burying of axes along with regrets

Human Heart 05:15
Human Heart Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 You have to dance through the defences If you want to steal that kiss You gotta ride your motocycle into that fortress If you want to steal that bliss And it's all just for one human heart You're willing to take that fall For it’s through this one human heart you feel that love is all You can feel it beating Feel it pounding in your own You can feel it calling Calling you back home There's no hesitation in your heart no hesitation in your will For this one human heart you would be willing to kill Even if it means you might not make it back over that wall For this one human heart you’re willing to risk it all And the angels seem quite human As they watch from a far But it is only through being human That we know who we are Now you have to be wise you can't just be willing to die Without a method to your madness You won’t make it through alive Once you get her arms around you don’t let that engine stall For it’s through this one human heart you feel that love is all

Auto Pilot 01:46
Auto Pilot Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 Flying flying zooming spacing Searching taking over racing On auto pilot You can't deny it Wanting dreaming needing stealing Moving breaking slightly shaking You wanna buy it On auto pilot The first won't be last And the last have no chance They can't buy it cause they won't find it The more you need the more you dream And the more you dream the more you play And the more you play the more you need And that's just the way The dream was once of rags to riches The dream was once what media preachers Bore into us yeah we took it on trust But on auto pilot You don't fly it Keep your nose clean and to the grinding stone Put in the years and you'll own your home You'll get your reward Live or die by their word You wanna but it On auto pilot The more you need the more you play And the more you play the more you dream And the more you dream the more you need And that's just the way

Pauper Or A King Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 It's 4am and we're driving hard Headlights cutting us a tunnel down through the night Touring this country wears the rubber down But there's something in a ten hour drive that feels just right Down highway one we fly like a bullet Down to the next town with a whiskey bar and a stage We'll get them stomping when we get down to it Each night we're playing better then we've ever played I might end up a pauper or I might end up a king But that ain't the reason I'm a riding this thing Ain't the reason I play this guitar Ain't the reason I get up and sing I might end up a pauper or I might end up a king But that ain't the reason I'm riding this thing I do it for the song I need to sing tonight And it might not make me rich -but it will make me feel alright Now I swear if the road don't do me in The hotels and the farewells will my friend It can break you down it can make you spin But I wouldn't trade this life of mine for anything Back home she’s still on her own At the next truck stop I’ll call her on the phone I’ll tell her baby, baby, baby you’re my blessing in the night Just knowing you’re there makes long dark road seem light We still got 500 miles to go Woh, woh, before we can shut this old truck down We'll get a few winks before the next show Flying on this track that just goes round and round and round and round

Drink It Up 02:03
Drink It Up Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 Drink it up, don't waste a drop It's said those that don't waste, they want not So let it pour, but not on the floor Drink it up, don't waste a drop The barrel's full we'll get our fill If that be you want if that be your will We'll get our fill before the cellar runs dry So fill that glass and raise it high If you don't want it, someone will want it If you don't take it, someone will take it If you don't drink it, someone will drink it But if you just drain it then it's over then ain't it So drink it up It's time to dance it's time sing It's time to celebrate everything It's time for friends and family and foe It's time to drink to all we don't know

You And I 02:13
You And I Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 You and I Need a holiday Let's just fly Let's just take ourselves away You and I On deck chairs by the sea Clear blue skies Let's just take ourselves away Life’s too short to not have fun Let’s bask our blues away Let’s build sand castles in the sun Come on let's go and play You and I Walking hand in hand Stop for lunch And stay til the evening’s end You and I Sleeping in the sand Time can fly Cause the only work is on our tans The days and weeks pass fast as light We say is good morning then we say goodnight But what do we struggle for You and I Need a holiday Clear blue skies Let's take ourselves away You and I Let's just fly away Go today What do you say Come on, let's take a holiday

Running Through My Heart Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 I can live and I can love and I can roll in the mud And if I come just for fun I ain’t hurting anyone And if I trip if I fall I tell you it is only caused By running through my heart Running through my heart Running through my heart with my eyes closed She’s an angel, she’s my love All I want all I am thinking of And everyday that she’s with me Heaven’s winds blowing crazy But sometime soon she’ll be gone Flying through the air and out of my arms And running through my heart Running through my heart Running through my heart with my eyes closed So love is blind but I don’t mind I’ll go stealing through the dark till the end of time Cause I can feel what is real What is mine and what’s a crime So be still, share some time I think I feel a spark I think I see a sign Running through my heart Running through my heart Running through my heart with her eyes closed So I can live and I can love and I can roll in the mud And if I come just for fun I ain’t hurting anyone And if I trip if I fall I tell you it is only caused By running through my heart Running through my heart Running through my heart with my eyes closed

Crazy World 03:48
Crazy World Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 I think I think I think I've had enough No I don't like to say it no but I feel like giving up Well we could sit around and talk about it again But words are cheap So tell me when's the action gonna begin It's a crazy world, it's a crazy world It's a crazy world, it's a crazy world I really would like to laugh till day break But you tell me there's too much at stake Well it's a crazy world Now tomorrow holds a new challenge Leaves you awake at night just questioning everything There’s too much that’s uncertain Too much could rock the boat So you draw the curtains and worry about keeping afloat There's a guy on the corner ever morning around eight He's just looking to get enough together To get himself off the street We've got grain silos ready to burn When it’s brother against brother tell what do we learn

Does It All Make Sense Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 It's time for waking up It always comes too early I'm washing myself down Getting ready to get dirty Getting ready to get dirty The coffee takes too long The groats fill my belly They help me to feel strong Strong enough to be who I wanna be Strong enough to be who I wanna be Does it all make sense Does it, does it have to I've no worries or defense I just like doing things with you There's many things I want to do Many places I want to go The road is open up now Where it leads is up to us you know It's up to us, up to us you know Now the dusk has rolling in I'm feeling kinda lazy Just pull in close and gentle Just want to feel you next to me Just want to feel you next to me

Satisfied 05:20
Satisfied Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 I’ve got an HD plasma TV I stare at it and it stares at me It’s helped me to realise I’ve got to go to Walmart And get me a bigger size And if I can watch it till tomorrow If it will steal my mind If I can watch it till tomorrow Then I’ll be satisfied Satisfied I’ve got a fridge that’s always full of food I go to it whenever I am in the mood It’s just so big and deep and tall and wide It promises to fill me up inside And if I can feast until tomorrow If I can keep it inside And if I can feast until tomorrow Then I’ll be satisfied Satisfied I got a brand new great big pick up truck I can’t afford it but I figure what the hell All my money’s long gone anyway I’m gonna drive down the road --and make my great get away And if I can drive it till tomorrow If I can be hard to find If I can drive it till tomorrow Then I’ll be satisfied Satisfied

Rise Up 04:31
Rise Up Words and music by Lionel Lodge All Rights Reserved (c) (p) Lionel Lodge 2016 I'm not going to sing you a flag waving song I'll sing one that together the world can sing along Won't matter if you're rich or poor Won't matter the colour of your skin All that matters is for all to join in (and sing) Rise up, sing a song of love Rise up, for all to rise above From all the pain and anguish that so many of us face Rise up and sing the song of peace We are all brothers and sisters round the world Every mother, every father, every boy and every girl And everyone we pass we as go through our busy day We are all connected in so many ways Doesn't matter your religion or how you pray Doesn't matter the time of year, when at work or when at play For in every passing moment there's the chance to give To reach out share some joy to understand and to forgive

about

The incredible Schragged Out Band (S.O.B.) is a slippery slope with a mischievous Vienna heart . They take the musical carpet by it’s fringe tassels and swirled it around their heads.

Over the years Lionel’s hitch hiked his way through many musical landscapes but always kept a wild, Americana/Rock core, almost Gypsy in ways. His music stomps and swoons, howls high then hovers deep and low. With the wonderfully dynamic S.O.B. he shifts from thumping rock to hot pepper Cajun, to swaying, howling Celtic, to laid back, soul full country all with the depth and brilliance of Lionel’s playful lyrics.

"With words and music Lionel painted pictures so vivid you could reach out and touch the canvas." Flicky Harrison, Swindon Evening News, England.

"Lionel may come rolling out of Vienna but it feels like the map reference ought to be somewhere between The Band's Woodstock, New York, and the original Allmans' Macon, Georgia. Roogalating, everything in the right place." Phil Sutcliffe, Q Magazine, England.

"Outstanding in every aspect!!!" Rolf Hierath, Radio RheinWelle 92,5, Germany

Schragged (Sh/ray/ged): In some ways bent or twisted, not square, somewhat skewed or irregular.
