Here We Go
[CHORUS:]
here we go
leave it on the back burner
take it to the dry town

I got the mean time slippin' down
the slide some uptight right wing,
political homicide, do what you want,
take what you will, take it in like a
southpaw, flip it on the grill
bourgeoise, protocol
bottoms up boys this is the last call
happy hour doesn't last too long
you know it never does
so I sit here on a bar stool looking at
the sky got a buck and a quarter
and a bucket full or rye
don't step out of line you'll get time
in the brig don't yield to the mighty
you got your own dirt to dig

[CHORUS]

my and my flea bag friends we ran
to have our own feast of Crispan
Murphy was there with number 22
they were got caught in the middle
of a coup, you will
lose me if I don't lose you

we haven't chosen
anyone of you to condemn
so make your decision and chose you
side or let us begin

steeped in knowledge
I'll step from the board
down to the speak easy
with my double-edged sword
you know the deal
you got to spin the wheel
I heard the heavens are full of sevens
but as matter of fact
you know that cat suicide jack
he don't play like that
truth is he don't really play at allback to top
Bats in the Belfry
old man river said
you can go your own way
if you just leave him alone
do not deliver all your things today
we are going home
oh mama we now so hungary

[CHORUS:]
I got bats in the belfry
I'm in the kitchen, boiling society
I'm in the open catching all the leaves
we all see what we want

old man river...
oh mama we now so hungary

[CHORUS]

I have a crazy idiosyncrasy
it's affinity to serendipity
and in this eternal epiphany
no hypocracy or duplicity

oh mama we now so hungaryback to top
The General
There was a decorated general with a heart of gold
And likein him to all the story's he told
Of past battles won and lost and legend's of old
A season veteran in his own time
On the battle field he gained respect for fame
With many medals of bravery ad straps to his name
He grew a beard as soon as he could to cover the scars on his face
And always urged his men on

But on the eve of great battle with the infantry in dream
The old general tossed in his sleep and wrestled with its meaning
He awoke from that night to tell what he had seen
And slowly walked out of his tent
All the men held tall with there chests in the air
With there courage and there blood and a fire in there stare
And it was a great morning and they all wondered how they would fair
Till the old general told them to go home

[Chorus 1}
He said
I have seen the others
And i have discovered
That this fight is not worth fighting
And iv seen there mothers
And i will no other
To follow me were I'm going

[chorus 2]
So
Take a shower and shine your shoes
You got no time to lose
You are young men you must be living
Take a shower and shine your shoes
You got no time to lose
You are young men you must be living
Go no you are forgiven

But the men stood fast with there guns on there shoulders
Not knowing what to do with the contradicting orders
The general said he would do his own duty but he extended no further
The men could go as they pleased
But not a man moved
There eyes gazed straight ahead
Till one by one they stepped back and not a word was said
And the old general was left with his own words echoing in his head
He then prepared to fight

[Chorus 1]

[chorus 2]

Go now you are forgiven
Go now you are forgiven
Go now you are forgiven go

Go now you are forgiven
Go now you are forgiven
Go now you are forgiven
go ohhh

Go now you are forgiven
Go now you are forgiven
Go now you are forgiven
You got to be
Got to be
Got to be
Got to be
Got to be
Heyback to top
Bang Bang
She woke me up with a bang, bang
Looking over cross eyed had a big
Hunch that the world was a big lie
When I got up all the blood to my head
I got so dizzy fell back to my bed
I went over to the way side
Looking for the high tide
What will I find will I find will I find find
All I saw was a man that had a hat
That had a pom-pom he's been there for
Years can someone tell me how long

[Chorus:]
Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

You see this woman woke me up
At a quarter to three and I didn't
Know it then but she put a spell on
Me said I had to go down to where
The cliffs mee the sea and mean an
Old man to present my plea
So I headed way down to the big pier
To await and confront my big fear
I wheeled around behind to my
Blindside to find and old man with a
Lime and a kind eye
Said mister, mister with your beard so long
Won't you be a saint and tell me
Just where I'm going
He pointed to a conch shell and then
To the lime and said this is all
I really need to get by

[Chorus]

Hey mister man
I know you don't know
Who you think I, think I am
But I can safely say, that I
Should've been sleeping the day
Away I said scuse me, if you've got the
Time he shrugged his shoulders
Said get a spine
Coconut hit me on the head
Jonesin' for a fig
I booked last night
I need another fix
Just then I see a twinkle twinkle
In the old man's eye and a wave
Tossed bottle in thrown to the sky

I caught it on the rebound
It landed with a soft sound
I took out the message and put the
Bottle down
Inside was the antidote to the spell
And I read it to the old man 'cause he
Couldn't read so well
Said don't worry about a
Thing you know your
Path is true just ease your
Mind have a banana
Or two

Goodness, goodness, woe is me
The man nearly flipped to learn
That he was free but just before we
Left and started kicking it
I picked up the bottle and star sixed it

Kick kick shuffle shuffle back to the beach
With a tune on my lips and my quest in reach

If that woman comes to you with
Her song so sweet, say damn
Let the poor sucker sleepback to top
Mission
let it be known, to all you misbelievin'
what you've been seein'
that we will not stand
will not be mistaken
we'll go there leave this weakness
don't take this from me
we'll go there leave this weakness
'cause I have been waiting

[CHORUS:]
Lo we are not so we're on a mission
Lo we are not so we're on a mission

damn this, damn that
there'll be no talk of turnin' back
damm this, damn that
there'll be not talk
that we might fly sometimes
we will find our own way
that we might fly sometimes
we will find our own

[CHORUS]

we are not so
we are not given
we are not sold on what we have seen

we're gone we're gone
the list is long we are many strong
the ceilings are coming downback to top
Drive
Daddy I want to drive today
I wanna get up and go
wanna find some time
Mama I hear what you're sayin'
I wanna feel alive and get inside

hey I wanna drive
I'm alright if you're alright

tell me what to think
it's been years since we've been
flyin'
show me what you're seein'
I wanna feel alive wanna take this
diveback to top
Two Coins
I stick loneliness, you lips
and the two coins of your eyes
into my pickets

well the train skates into
Port Henry late sunday
sometimes when I'm riding high
feeling fine you know there's something
troubling my mind

so I reach into my pocket for some
small change
I reach into my pocket for some
small change

I want bones like iron blood like mercury
so I can tell you when I'm rising
and when I'm sinking in

[CHORUS]

we're gonna take it to the people
hey let's drink from the cup
share some luck
go ahead and laugh cause it don't
cost much

I stick loneliness, your lips
and the two coins of your eyes
into my pocketsback to top
Railway
so all of a sudden I'm facing a
raging river that passed me by
do I turn around, do I turn my eye
to the sun in the apex of the high noon
I'm on a flatbed yellow pick up
underneath a half moon

so cut me some slack jack and jump in
the back if you can't handle the candle
they you can't handle the wax
you're just going to get sacked
it's as simple as that

but before I know it
I'm going down this itty bitty river in
a boat a little bigger
than a bath tub
my bones begin to shiver
'cause I'm aching to deliver
this water that I must give her
can I get some

[CHORUS:]
down by the railway station
people moving in a new direction
take a ticket from who you can
drive that train

she was a black-tie bomb shell
out of Bombay
she was easy on the eyes
so I had nothing to say
she said take the water to the
leprechaun man you got till the bell
rings three, do you understand
a little peice of me wants to go

I don't know
turn around what do I do
I don't know

ding dong ding that's the bell
and I know you know I know
I don't know you very well
but if I did, I would groove
and hit the ground running
but I don't and I won't
so you got another thing coming

[CHORUS]

he kicked up the river
with a flick of his wrist
I popped him in the kisser
'cause I couldn't resist
I said to my side kick
I'm up to my high wick
and now I'm getting a little homesick
but before I know it
I'm going down this itty bitty river
in a boat a little bigger
than a bath tub
my bones begin to shiver
'cause I'm aching to deliver
this water that I must giver her
can I get some

[CHORUS]

ride your trainback to top
Whirlwind
a whirlwind cam into my life
and it tried to rescue me
will you come, will you go
will you tell me seriously
twisti', burnin', my thoughts turnin'
back to you again
sweet thing take me to the end

You better dig
and take a look inside yourself

so the story goes or so I've heard it said
that you left your land to trade for a place
so far away, so out of date
that only you could understand
and at the ceiling of my feeling
backed up against the wall
sweet thing you know I'd fall in line

You better dig
and take a look inside yourself

she wants to be free
and I want to know
that she wants to be free
and I want to knowback to top
Out Loud
would you be the wind to blow me home
would you be a dream
on the wings of a poem
and if you were walking through a crowd
you know I'd be proud

[CHORUS:]
if you call my name out loud
do you suppose that I would come running
do you suppose I'd come at all
I suppose I would

and if we were walking
down a dead end street
would you be the one to let our eyes meet
or would you just keep on walking
down to the turn around
'cause you know I'd be proud

[CHORUS]

and if I was gone from the land we know
would be the dawn
and let your beauty still show
and if you were walking
and heard the cold night coming
would you call my name
'cause you know I'd come runningback to top
