    GET USED TO IT							[OPEN0]
    ==============
    
    Lyrics: Greg Kasavin
    Vocals: Logan Cunningham
    Length: 0:54 minutes
    
    
    Listen,
    All this takes a lot of gettin' use to
    And you do get used to it... after a while
    
    There's three things I'll always miss though
    One... not havin' to watch my step all the time
    Two... Ah... forget about two
    And three... I miss the songs
    
    Folks from Caelondia knew how to carry a tune
    Sure, we've got some songs on the old gramophone
    But try and imagine what they sounded like
    Playin' to a room full of fine people
    Unwindin' at The Sole Regret after a hard day's work
    Those were the days
    
    
    
    
    BUILD THAT WALL (ZIA'S THEME)					[ZIA00]
    =============================
    
    Lyrics: Darren Korb
    Vocals: Ashley Barrett
    Length: 2:45 minutes
    
    
    I dig my hole, you build a wall
    I dig my hole, you build a wall
    One day that wall is gonna fall
    
    Gon' build that city on a hill
    Gon' build that city on a hill
    Someday those tears are gonna spill
    
    So build that wall and build it strong
    'Cause we'll be there before too long
    
    Gon' build that wall up to the sky
    Gon' build that wall up to the sky
    Someday your bird is gonna fly
    
    Gon' build that wall until it's done
    Gon' build that wall until it's done
    But now you got nowhere to run
    
    So build that wall and build it strong
    'Cause we'll be there before too long
    
    
    
    
    MOTHER, I'M HERE (ZULF'S THEME)					[ZULF0]

    Lyrics: Darren Korb
    Vocals: Darren Korb
    Length: 2:17 minutes
    
    
    I set my sail
    Fly; the wind it will take me
    Back to my home, sweet home
    
    Lie on my back
    Clouds are makin' way for me
    I'm comin' home, sweet home
    
    I see your star
    You left it burnin' for me
    Mother, I'm here
    
    Eyes open wide
    Feel your heart and it's glowin'
    I'm welcome home, sweet home
    
    I take your hand
    Now you'll never be lonely
    Not when I'm home, sweet home
    
    I see your star
    You left it burnin' for me
    Mother, I'm here

    I say Mother, lonely old gal
    Tear your heart out for what ya done
    Tear your heart out for what ya done

    You'll be pleadin' while you're bleedin'
    
    Gods ain't gonna help ya son
    You'll be sorry for what ya done
