Track Name: pseudoboss - Forget, Forfeit
Forget all my troubles / Forfeit all my pain / For my woman / Has come back again
Track Name: Hardened Soul
Riding hard, the dusty trail, the sun is blinding bright
My trusty steed knows no bounds, she runs day through night
I am a man of simple plans who is driven by one goal
To seek you out beyond a doubt and make you pay the toll

A hardened soul is what I am
I have no remorse for you or your man
You should have paid your dues in better time
Now I gotta beat you down and take what I deem mine

Riding hard, the dusty trail, the wind is at my back
You try to gain, you’re losing ground, the day it turns to black
I will not rest, I will not tire, until I claim your soul
You should’ve thought of what it cost to learn to rock and roll

A hardened soul is what I am
I have no remorse for you or your man
You should have paid your dues in better time
Now I gotta beat you down and take what I deem mine
Track Name: pseudoboss - Let Her Go, Go, Go
Hard to save all the world
From what you’re cookin’
But tonight I’m out for the girl
She’s damn good lookin’

You think that you’ve seen it all
And now you want some
It’s that much further to fall
I’ll kick your ass son

Hey there big bad man move your hand
Let her go, let her go, let her go, go, go
I’ll take you in the street kick you off your feet
For the show, gonna show, gonna show, show, show
How hard men fall till they crawl
Now you know, now you know, sucker, know, Now you know, know
Are ready for the walk or the rock
Let’s rock, let’s roll, let’s roll, baby, roll
Track Name: pseudoboss - pseudoboss
I’m a man who thinks that
You should not cross me
I’ll take your book back
And make you beg for mercy

I have no time for
Your pointless thoughts on
Who I should bow to
And hope to see when I’m gone

You can call it chaos
But now it’s anarchy
I’ll let you know my thoughts
And the kind of mood I’m in

I don’t have to take your shit
Or seem to really care
I decide my own damned fate
So you better say your prayers

You did not lose me
I’m am not to blame
I won’t go idly by
While your try to guilt me to shame

It may seem like I am lost
But I know who I am
I’ll meet you at the cross
And find out who is condemned
Track Name: pseudoboss - You Know This (Song By Heart)
Met a girl with a heart of gold
Saw me with her and us growing old
You know this song by heart

Took her out and we saw the band
Taught me how to dance with a drink in my hand
You know this song by heart
--------
One and one and we're making two
Taught me love and now I'm thanking you
You know this song by heart

She's the kinda girl who can make the man
Her name was Eve when the story began
You know this song by heart
------
There's a lot of little fish in the sea
Any one of 'em could made it with me
You know this song by heart

If I woulda been with one of them
Then I woulda had the finest gem
You know this song by heart
------
Met a girl with a heart of gold
Saw me with her and us growing old
You know this song by heart

One and one and we're making two
Taught me love and now I'm thanking you
You know this song by heart

Shoulda loved ya but I let you go
Thought a man shoulda wanted more
You know this song by heart
Woulda caught m e but you let me fall
Taught me that I didn't know it all
You knew this song by heart
Track Name: pseudoboss - Olyphants
Throw in to the wind
Conscious of the score
Finger in the pin
Life will never be like before

Resistance is the best
When fired from a gun
Package them with death
Send them back to where they belong
----
The blast will make you flinch
Exploding through their core
Mangles inch
A young man learns the horror of war

Resistance is the best
When fired from a gun
Package them with death
Send them back to where they belong

HEY THERE! SOLDIER!
Were there mothers?
Gunned down by your
Infantry of death and destruction

HEY THERE! MOTHER!
Were there soldiers?
Raping daughters
An infantry of death and destruction
----
The pain of war
It's endless wrath
Cannot exceed / The Woe of Aftermath
Track Name: pseudoboss - I've Been There
The Devil looks very nice
When she's dressed in black and white
Never trust someone who habitually lies
Like a woman who won't see you lest she's in a disguise

I've been there
I've been there before
I've been there
She's left me wanting more, more, more

I don't know if I could ever love her
Especially when she's seducing others
But she drives me wild when she's undercover
Even when she's bringing out the whips and the rubber

I've been there
I've been there before
I've been there
She's left me wanting more, more, more

Don't you think we should quiet down
Protest them from the screams and the shouts
Keeping everything just between ourselves
And we'll save it til they're gone, we'll bring down the house

I've been there
I've been there before
I've been there
She's left me wanting more, more, more
Track Name: pseudoboss - Devil's Due
I don't think you're understanding
What it is I'm here to say
You have debts which are outstanding
Now the time has come to pay

Life it seems has shown you favor
Glad to hear you're doing fine
Time is short for you to savor
Claim I will what I deem mine

With your gift I gave you freedom
That of which I want my own
As a fee you will now become
The king of hell upon my throne
