about

This album was created by Mitch von Lindern, aka "Max". My father who has been fighting cancer for the last five months, but the odds were stacked against him. He was such a great musician as much as he was a great dad, and I want to sell his music in his honor, and as a memorial after he has passed.

I want everyone to know who my father is.

He wrote, sang, and played every instrument in this album from the bottom of his heart and I hope you enjoy his music and spread it around. I've remastered the tracks to make them sound a little more high quality for re-release.

All funds will go to his immediate family (the one making this account and album is Blake, his son) and will be spent on any bills we may need after he's passed, and anything else we may need to heal and move on after losing such a great husband, and a great, great father.

I love you, dad. We all do, and we always will.

Track Name: The Storm I Am
Romance is the storm that passes over,
You and I are all that remain,
Standing amid the wreckage and flotsam.
our tears mingle in the rain,
Oh, I'm telling you that I'm not inclined,
to let the storm go by again,
without lifting you on high,
to feel the tempest of the wind...

Come ride the restless wings of love,
give to me your trusting hand,
I'll take you high as the rainbow,
to bathe in the colored bands...

Oh I'm telling you,
This is the storm I am...

Love has a way to twisting and turning,
a protected and a lonely heart,
A desperate tornado, a longing, a yearning
a heart so neatly caught,
Get underground in the fear of love,
build your walls both high and deep,
and I will come and batter down,
the defenses of your keep!

Come ride the restless wings of love,
I can make you fly, I can!
Cling to me in your downpour,
and let it wash us new again...

Oh I'm telling you,
This is the storm I am...

I am the thunder, I am the fury,
when your hand touches me!
Tis' a wicked gale that blows a lover,
so far out to sea!
Hold on to me,
I will set you free...

Come ride the restless wings of love,
I can make you fly, I can!
Cling to me in your downpour,
and let it wash us new again...

Oh I'm telling you,
This is the storm I am...
Track Name: Double Knot Spy
I live a life of danger,
I'll prove your lover's a stranger!
He's been steppin' out, not 'fessing up to why,
I been placed on his case, I am,
The Double Knot Spy!

Gotta a truck that squirts grease out the back,
I wear a sharp, iron-brimmed cowboy hat!
I'm thoroughly trained, I'll catch the bad guy,
never fear darlin' I am...
The Double Knot Spy!

He's a master of disguise, I can see it in his eyes,
He's pullin' a face on you!
I'll get a montage of my espionage,
compromised cover, courtesy of you know who!

(repeat 'master of disguise' chorus)

(repeat 2nd verse)

Dark and dire implications,
it seems I can't trust my information,
contacts advise me, he's got you hypnotized,
comin' to your rescue I am...
The Double Knot Spy!
Track Name: Just Cross The Rio
A tribute to the one and only Billy The Kid
lyrics
Garret was comin', the Governor lied,
we were split up, man to man...
Our best bet for livin' was on the Mexican side,
but that ain't what Billy had planned.

Don't go to Tombstone, they'll catch you up there,
in Texas they'll hang you for sure...
Get across the Rio, we'll hide up somewhere,
where they won't hear your name anymore...

Billy was happy with the fame he had bought,
paid for with the blood of five men.
He cared very little for the trouble he'd wrought,
he'd ride on forever, amen...

Remember me Billy and the way we would ride.
'neath a blood red New Mexico sky,
The rios conchitas shed tears for the brave,
and they'll cry for you so when you die...

We were still talkin' when Billy lit out,
ridin' horse leather, hell-bent,
He figured on waitin' ol' Pat Garret out,
but we all knew better by then...

Don't go to Tombstone, they'll catch you up there,
in Texas they'll hang you for sure,
get across the Rio, we'll hide up somewhere.
where they won't hear your name anymore....
Track Name: The Cowboy Walk
I've been dancing the lines down in Texas
And I have some moves that'll test your reflexes
Yeah I've been known to scoot my boots and talk
Ain't nothing gonna shake you up like the cowboy walk

The people that know me all believe that I'm fakin'
The cowboys copy the moves that I'm makin'
I shuffle my boots on by and enjoy all the talk
I'm doing the dancefloor up with the cowboy walk

Well I ain't the kinda guy to the trip the light fantastic nah nah
People they tell me that my dancin' tends to look kinda spastic lord lord
Now I'm gonna find myself a little dance I'm a-hopin' that I can do
The only question now is can I get a dance with you?

Well I shaked my achin' heart since I was a baby lord lord
I shook my rattle right off and I don't mean maybe nah nah
Well now I'm gonna strut my stuff like a loser 'till you have to believe I'm cool
Won't you say, "Honey I wanna shake it with a dancin' fool!"

I've been dancing the lines down in Texas
And I have some moves that'll test your reflexes
Yeah I've been known to scoot my boots and talk
Ain't nothing gonna shake you up like the cowboy walk
I said doin' the dancefloor up with the cowboy walk
I said you're gonna keep your eyes on me when I cowboy walk
Track Name: L2L (Lonely Too Long)
Let's get it straight baby
Don't you think maybe
Together's where we belong?
I won't lie to ya'
I'll be true to ya'
Honey I've been lonely too long

Let's talk about it honey
Don't you think it's funny
That I'm still taggin' along?
I won't lie to ya'
I'll be true to ya'
Honey I've been lonely too long

There comes a time in every young man's life
When breakin' hearts ain't all it's worth
And I need only look into your deep blue eyes
To see that you don't wanna be hurt

I'm here to tell ya'
I ain't gonna fail ya'
Honey I won't do you wrong
I won't lie to ya'
I'll be true to ya'
Honey I've been lonely too long

You're the only one who could really make me
Fall in love with a one of a kind
And now the only question: do you really love me?
Well come on give an answer
Won't you take a chance
Before I change my mind?

I'm here to tell ya'
I ain't gonna fail ya'
Honey I won't do you wrong
You once said you love me
Since I'm thinkin' of it
Honey I've been lonely too long

You're the only one who could really make me
Fall in love with a one of a kind
And now the only question: do you really love me?
Well come on give an answer
Won't you take a chance
Before I change my mind?
Track Name: Something Wicked This Way Comes
Get yourself together, put your lady on a tether,
shes' gonna be mortified, get yourself fortified!
Boys at the bar blow your whistles and bang your drums...
There's a lady with evil intentions walkin' in,
near as I can size it a bad moon's arising,
oh look out boys!
Something wicked this way comes!

To hear Jimmy tell it, he called her Dolly Dagger,
said that she drinks her blood from a jagged edge...

Lots of youngbloods on a big dance floor,
Just the way she likes it, til she finds a neck and bites it,
I'm tellin' you son, if she smiles you better run!
Evil omens in the air says the lady over there,
is comin' here to getcha and the bitch is that you'll let her,
So head for the hills
Cuz something wicked this way comes!

To hear Jimmy tell it, he called her Dolly Dagger,
says that she drinks her blood from a jagged edge!

(repeat 1st verse, include Dolly Dagger side and out)
Track Name: Fightin' Side
I'm a homegrown boy raised on American pie
From the soles of my shoes to the flag that I wave on high
Most times I'm the kind that you introduce to mama
But you don't get my temper rised
I'm an American boy don't you get on my fightin' side
I'm an American boy don't you get on my fightin' side

I'm a city firefighter don't you get on my fightin' side
When my big trucks are rollin' and the flames are rising high
When you see me comin' get out of the way
Cause there might be people trapped in side
I'm a city firefighter don't you get on my fightin' side

I'm a cop on the beat don't you get on my fightin' side
I keep peace on the streets gotta keep good people alive
Yeah if you get to crimin' you better watch your shoulder
Cause believe it I'm right behind
I'm a cop on the beat don't you get on my fightin' side

I'm a US soldier don't you get on my fightin' side
You can't do this to my country and then think that you can run and hide
The only thing that being a terrorist will get you is
Buried six feet deep and died
I'm a US soldier don't you get on my fightin' side

I'm the USA don't you get on my fightin' side
If you cut me deep enough then I'll bleed American pride
If you don't like my freedom here's an American rocket that
You can get on and ride
I'm the USA don't you get on my fightin' side
I'm the USA don't you get on my fightin' side
I'm the USA don't you get on my fightin'
Don't ever let me catch you on my yeah
Fightin' side
Track Name: TriGun
In the town of June at the local saloon,
trouble and kingdom has come...
A human typhoon shot a hole in the Moon,
Now this town is done...

The district Constabulary tried make a posse,
to outnumber him a hundred to one.
Kinda hard to do when the local population,
is packin' up and on the run...

If you know his name better smile when you say it,
TriGun!

Seems to live forever, Hell in red leather...
Rumor has it hes' as fast as they come,
Death by rollin' iron, death by misadventure,
is all hes' ever offered to some.

Some say hes' an angel, some say hes' a saint!
some say he has a heart full of fun,
There are others some say, who just got in his way,
and who died for refusing to run...

If you know his name better smile when you say it,
TriGun!

If you plan on stayin', better get to prayin'
confess your sins under the Sun,
Maybe cleanse your soul, maybe rock and roll,
maybe you're just in it for fun...

If you need protection, a little absolution,
then find yourself a gung-ho gun,
They gotta reputation for dealing out redemption,
at the business of a gun...

Look straight down the barrel, do you see more than one?
TriGun!

(repeat 2nd verse and out)
