The Green Album, 2001, is a collection of 5 new songs straight out of GTO's home studio. The MP3/DVD-playable-only CD was released in the final hours of 2001 and is a testament to our commitment to our fans to release at least one CD every year through the life of the band. The Green Album offers a glimpse into our forthcoming full-length CD. Enjoy the new tunes and let us know what you think!

Best For You
<< previous song | next song >>

A man I know up and left his home. He had to see the world, he had to meet the girls. But the consequence was coming home to nothing 'cause he bared his soul and made of his life a little something. And occasionally he'd step outside, take a breath of air from the cool, wet night and hold it in as long as he was able. And other times he'd stop and stare and wonder if he really cared enough, to exhale. But most the time he'd write alone in a rocking chair and a rolling stone would pass him by as a reminder...

All I ever wanted was the best for you. It took all I had to give but now the rest is up to you. All I ever wanted was the best for you always, but you make loving you impossible these days.

Okay, I'm here to answer all your questions take away your biggest fears. I tell you honestly, what you mean to me and it scares you half to death. But it doesn't seem to matter in the morning, 'cause you come and go for days without a warning. And a relentless storm it rages on, from deep within the battle's won, but how you gonna fight it on your own. And the great divide that's in our heart is less an end and more a start of who you think you're going to become. So once again he stepped outside, took a breath of air from the cool, wet night and now he believes in the afterlife.

Chasing the Wind
<< previous song | next song >>

We can't remember much of anything. 'Cause we been chasing the wind all our lives. It's never enough to sit back and watch it all. Though people tell us it's a miracle. We came along with nothing more than a rock song and a need to score and what you're seeing now is everything we are.

And it rained all night, and it came daylight, and there's nothing more that you can do that's gonna make us change our mind. I got my limousine, I make the girls scream, I'm on the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine. I traveled wide and far, smokin' Cuban cigars, I got my name up on the Hollywood Boulevard, and all this, all for chasin' the wind.

We made a pact for life and we signed it off with blood. The difference in wrong and right, it was clearly understood. The prick from the guitar string didn't hurt at all. Not for the best damn band in America. We base our lives on an intuition, a good time and a blind ambition that what will be will be until the end of time.

Owe It To You
<< previous song | next song >>

Five states away and I'm trying to sleep but time seems to move so slow when your not around here. Always make me laugh the things that you do. Drunk on this feeling my body's alive, and i'd be the first to admit it's a miracle how, never thought I'd want this like I do and I must say baby Don't want you to change anything that you do I want you the way that you are 'cause I believe that the things that connect me to you will keep us no matter how far, believe me.

These times that we spend together are changing the way that I see myself and I want it to last forever, could this be the train that we waited for. baby, all this is true and I owe it to you.

Hear all the music I write in the day but I wonder if you feel all the rhythm your givin' me now every chourd I sail my fingers through and I must say lady the things that were wearing me down in my life have seem to come and run their way through and the people I love who are dear in my life are guideing me closer to you believe me

In a Box
<< previous song | next song >>

With friends like you, who needs enemies. You got the coolest shoes but paid for them with pennies. You're clouding up my views cuz you haven't got any, and everything I tried to do for you is lost, and it's all gone now.

Your only sense of change is in your pocket, and if I owned a door you can bet I'd lock it. I'd throw away the key unless you fucking stop it and everything I tried to do for you is lost, and it's all gone now. And I am sitting beside myself as I'm looking for you in the lost and found.

In a box on the floor, near the back door. With the things people don't really want anymore. What's that you say, you like it there, in a box on the floor where you don't have to care. In case you think you're qualified to make it out of there on your own and alive, start thinking again, cuz the people you're with, they're not your friends. They have left you all alone, away from your home.

There will come a time when all your troubles, exceed your higher mind and make you see double, and now you need a dime to patch your bursted bubble and any other time, I'd do it for you with out a shadow of a doubt. But now I'm sitting beside myself as I'm looking for you in the lost and found.

Chorus

You do it every time, say you're gonna turn your life around and around and here we go again. Have you lost your mind? What kinda person do you take me... for my good friend, I am looking...

Omaha
<< previous song | next song >>

Left my home back in Omaha, see if I could make it out in the world. And I got as far as Witchita, suddenly I wasn't sure anymore. Lost all my friends in Los Angeles, and I'm not welcome in New York. But I'm a star back in Omaha, where the fans they always cryin' out for more.

Wanted to prove it to my family, wanted to prove it to myself. That I go out in a fire and glory, and you remember me as someone else.

If life is love and love is memories. A journey on from place to place. If that's the case then my life's a waste, cuz there's nothing left to live for but tomorrow. And tomorrow's just another day away.

Many said I couldn't do it, some days I think they might be right. Crowding up my dreams and makin' me so sad, and scared to death in the middle of the night.

But I'm a star back in Omaha, where the quiet life is right outside your door. To be a star back in Omaha reminds me I am something, and nothing more.
