01. Thunder & Lightning
02. All the Children Sing

LUCYFIRE's debut CD, "This Dollar Saved My Life at Whitehorse", was released in 2001. Edlund previously stated about the album, "I felt like recording an album that's more representative of the fun side of rock music. No deep messages, no special meaning, no sharp-witted analyses, only straightforward rock songs that entertain and serve all the usual rock clichés."
