Open Up
they were looking for me when I came to
they were looking for me when I came back
said hey you, you're looking very suspicious
I said relax man get off my back
I said relax man get off my back

I, I, I ain't opposed to seeking justice
but you're going about it all wrong
the man you're looking for does not exist
he's just a figment of the higher man's tounge

[CHORUS:]
and they say
open up we're comming inside
you can't run so you may as well hide
we got the place covered from head to toe, head to toe
open up we're comming inside
what's it feel like to know you're going to die
on the other side of the row
on the other side of the row

so they took me down to the gallows
and this boy he say to me
why do you smile when the rope's around your neck
I said I tell you boy when I get back
I said I tell you boy when I get back

I, I, I ain't opposed to seeking justice
but you're going about it all wrong
the man you're looking for does not exist
he's just a figment of the higher man's tounge
he's just a victim of the higher man's tounge

[CHORUS]

hands above your head
que le via bien
step out of line we'll and fill you with lead

how are we to know that your not a liar
don't you see whe have a job to do
and our job is the law
you fit the description of a criminal crosser
we believe that he is you and that is your flaw
that is your flaw...
that is your flaw...

and they say
open up we're comming inside
you can't run so you may as well hide
we got the place covered from head to toe, head to toe
open up we're comming inside
what's it feel like to know you're going to die

Cut It Ya Match It
Cause ya cut it ya match it

You do the final cut yeah
Ya cut it ya match it
Ya cut it ya match it
You do the final cut yeah
Ya cut it ya match it

You do the final cut yea
Ya cut it ya match it

You do the final cut yea

Cause it's a manifest destiny like a genocide recipe
Telling lords that wrestle me to be my own race
Challenge your god, another drink of your chalice
Dont underestimate the fate of a preordained mass

Where are my boots and where the hell is my balance
The hell you did come down from your planet
To see us all reach for the cocking of a a gun
Oh come if you're gunna get some

Cause forty seconds later and the cocking of a gun
A boy avoids confusion and his special agent scum
Two officers pushed a boy down on his back
Searched through his pockets found a vile of crack yea

This boy untainted
Its a typical mythical world we live in untaint me
Un-slay me, un-lay me
Going to the river cause I think I'm damn ready

There is a river where a riverbed should be
There is a river...yeah braddigan

There is a river where a riverbed should be
There is a river where a riverbed should be
There is a river where a riverbed should be
There is a river where a riverbed should...i'd like to

I'd like to jettison your medicine back to where you came from
You keep your Bell and Edison away from my grandson
Stand son on your own bone dont forget the home that you came from
Dont let them say your name wrong

Just like larry I take it to the hoop
I do one false move in one fell swoop
And then I, then I pass it to the trigger man
Bow down to the sound if you still can

Cause there's plenty of catcalls and plenty of misfalls
And I can attest to the rest of the pastfalls
Never have I ever made a match with sickness
Look both ways and dispatch with a quickness

Gimmie some roy, gimmie some speed
Gather all around to the word and read
On, 'til you get to the parts that's righteous
It's an unbearable likness

There is a river where a riverbed should be
There is a river where a ri ooooo
There is a river where a riverbed should be
There is a river where a riverbed should be

oooooooo yeah ooooooh

My name is Chetro (Chetro), and I do know (do know)
That I got to get some money to get the van towed
His name is Braddigan, and I'm back again
I wanna be that three with a tight plan

His name is Pete (Repete) Pete's got the goods
Spanking on my bass like I know I should
Lost in the draw for the freak and groove
Relax and relapse, and lets synapse this move

Lightning
we hear the dealers with their words
that ride the tails
of their cigarette smoke
sliding through the tunnels of our ears

those greasy marionettes of
real bone and blood
stand on the corner of washington square

vision stinging
eyes blurring

elevators got your rising so high
17 floors you want so much more
elevators got you rising so high
17 floors you want so much more

there's lightning on the ceiling
coming from the corner of her eye...

somewhere horses flee from thunder
somewhere the bones of a cat
are buried under a garden
well ther's a radio on
broken songs empty digression
won't be ling to you and me are gone from here

lightning on the ceiling
coming from the corner of her eyeback to top
Outloud
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
Even
come now to the edge of the room
you can see them all crowdin' around
soon they'll come in and come up here

let them find an effigy
but they'll never find me
head man I live to see you roll away

they'll never ever ever find me
they'll never ever ever find me

head man, walkig, right infront of me
don't you, look in, I'm not here you see
dead man told me wher I am to hide
said he's waitin' there, where it's all

even...
you can feel them coming
up through your heels

outside misconstructed the search continues
the hidden afraid are never betrayed
by the already gound and taken away

oh and in a different place
the hands that hold your face
are only trying only tryin' to keep you warm

they'll never ever ever find me
they'll never ever ever find me

hedman, walking, right in front of me
don't you, look in, I'm not here you see
deadman told me where I am to hide
said he's waitin thre, where it's all

even...

walk on, will we, walk on
with our heads to the wall
let them find taht they'll never find us all
hey I wanted a life less hidden
they wanted a life but I'll never give them

part of me...
part of me...

I will save my right
so hard to the ground
til we lay down
til we lay ourselves downback to top
Prince of Spades
Comein back
Comein home
The queen of love
Enters the room
Silence in sooths
To the king
what have you done to my life
Did you take me for a fool or for a wife

[chorus]
And the king is in his Court
Counting all his diamonds
One by one they do fall

Says the queen of pride
The prince of spades
is comein home
Be nice if you could find some time alone
after all hes
In line for the thrown

[chorus]
Oh they do fall

So now just get up off your ass
Leave all your treasures behind
Your son is comein home for you to spend time
Show him how a good king should be
And don't ever forget the day
When you turned your back on him and me
A still I stay
Still I stayback to top
Flying Horses
the river of doubt gave birth to a beautiful stone
and in my hands I held it and I knew I was on my own
so I picked it up and held it to the sky
and in my reflection. I knew I was all alone
then I saw this girl with the most beautiful hair
she had it wrapped around her for clothes she did not wear
I asked her for a lock and she complied, after leaving
gorgeous footsteps in the sand as if she didn't care
she was the prettiest girl I ever saw
the stone lay still without a flaw
the feelings I had defied the law
as I came to, I went to
and I took a look, a look down the road
to see a badger and a one eyed toad
they didn't say a word, they just looked at me
with that wise old look of the old
then I went to down to town
to my favorite merry-go-round
to the place where magic horses fly
and you seldom see a frown

[Chorus]
but then I stole a ring from the flying horses
and I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
and it's all rusty now
I stole a ring from the flying horses
and I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
and it's all rusty now

You see 'cause that stone fell through my pocket
and that lock of hair flew away with the wind
If you chance to meet upon either
well you know where they've been
but don't pick them up or try to find me
they're much happier to be on their own
beauty like that knows no home
and then if you take a look, a look down the road
you'll see a badger and a one eyed toad
they won't say a word they'll just look at you
with that wise look of the old

[Chorus]back to top
Bullet Holes
Black birds with bullet holes, bullet holes
Scattered across the sky
I wonder
These steep hills
Unto the great light
My fingers collapse around my pen
Like soldier tryin' to hold up the flag
I'm callin' out, once again
In this letter to you my friend
In this letter to you my friend
In this letter to you my friend

And don't tell me you been comin' up easy
Stop, drop, you're life is greasy
You used to say that you would come around
But you're never here

You have been
Up above so high so high so high
And lived, in the dirt
You have felt
Some love
And you
Have been hurt

Well I've gone to shorten my road
With a fistful of matches, but nothin' to strike (nothin' to strike)
And as we walk along the cove
And know that this is right
You may think I'm crazy
You may think I'm foolish
But I'm coming through the lightning
Comin' back to you

Don't tell me you been comin' up easy
Stop, drop, you're life is greasy
You used to say that you would come around
But you're never here

You have been
Up above so high so high so high
And lived, in the dirt
You have felt
Some love
And you
Have been hurt

Oh my my my my my my my

Oh my my my my my my my

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

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 raise your head, you beat the sun
But your boys they lie so close to you
Do you dare get up and wake the two?

Oh Elias, I see you there, at work in the daytime.
Do you think you could answer
All the questions in the world in just one word?
I think you could.

'Cause If you die will I get word that you're gone?
Or will I hear it in passing conversation?
Or will I stop short and fall to the ground?
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found.

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.
Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.

Honest and Manuel, well you know, they're at school now
Given the chance that their father's never seen
To see whats beyond Section 17.
And in ten years, when you look back at your boys,
well you know they've grown way taller
than the tallest sugar cane in the field.

If you die will I get word that you're gone?
Or will I hear it in passing conversation?
Or will I stop short and fall to the ground?
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found.

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.
Hold my hand just one more time.
Hold my hand just one more time.
Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.

I see your wife. She stands stooped over by the fire outside.
And I see your boys. And when they look up,
you know i think they got their mother's eyes.
'Cause she looks so proud. She looks so happy.
She looks so proud. She looks so happy. Yeah...

If you die will I get word that you're gone?
Or will I hear it in passing conversation?
Or will I stop short and fall to the ground?
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found.

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.
Hold my hand just one more time,

Cover This
Wounded, you can take me there
I was wounded, you can take me there
It was a crime that I was left
But will you go on without me?
Think I'll just walk myself to sleep

Cause I ain't working for your father
But I might as well be
I ain't lookin' for confusion
But it tends to follow me
You can come into my house, she said
If you do it quietly
But I said
There ain't no chance at that

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you what you missed

Wounded, and I will go if you go first
But I, ain't gonna wait around
Tell me how much is your dime worth
We got, ten minutes to get there
We got, ten minutes to go
Throw this one in for the money
Cause the next one's for the next show

I ain't working for your father
But I might as well be
I ain't lookin' for confusion
But it tends to follow me
You can come into my house, she said
If you do it quietly
But I said
There ain't no chance at that

Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you what you missed

So hey
Where you going?
Do you need somebody, somewhere
To help you get on by?
Cause I think, you know who I am
I'm gonna make this, as fast as I can
Some people call me the pusher man
I promise it won't take long no no no no
Just close your eyes
And get in the van

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy
If you think this happens a lot
Oh, do you like this?
Do you need someone to cover you
Just to show you want you missed

Cause I am listenin' to what you got
Put up your hands if you want me to stop
And I turn around, but I think you're crazy

Steeples
I heard a story about a boy, who was swept off the deck
the sweeping tide swept the sea over his neck
but it did not end there, the boy began to swim
and dared to the sea that dared to invade him

[Chorus:]
did you ever want to know me
did you ever feel like I could
it's a silent steeple that carries us down
it's a silent steeple

but the sea wouldn't so much as reply
so the boy swore to the ships that were fated to die
red sky at night, sailors take delight
red sky in the morning, sailors take warning
sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back

we were going with the wind in our hair
and we didn't want to look back 'cause if we did We would not care

and if we all were to die now
well it wouldn't be that bad
'cause the boy in the waves said he'd give us everything, everything he had
to go on and trace that scar, like we did ten years before

[Chorus]

sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back
sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on, take it backback 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
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
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

Questioned Apocalypse
I went down to the drug store to check my head against
the bright light but she caught me from behind
and though I did not know and though I did not care
I could not tell that I was blind to think my world a bubble
and to think that my brother's was too
and that she had come
to shatter all that I knew
so I straightened up my back and I cry
do what you must do

[CHORUS]
take me now before I change my mind
take me now before I lose my mind
so I headed to the deep, deep forest
to catch my earnings
but my earnings were all up

my brother looks up at the sky and says
why have you poisoned my brother's cup
and I say don't you worry boy
cause the woman who came for me
will surely show you your bliss
for she holds the answers to all your fears she
questions the apocalypse

Water Stop
when you dove, drunk with sleep in your eyes
you stole what was left of the sky,
I remember how you freed your hair,
hung your head in a forgotten stare
and I thought... and I thought

when will the water stop, will it pour all day?
when will the water stop?
I know that you can't say.

turning to fall out of our lives,
spinning pictures: blue screams and red kisses,
you sank into yourself and I got lost somewhere in between

when will the water stop, will it pour all day?
when will the water stop?
I know that you can't say.

she is washed up on his shore,
there's no time to get into his life,
she is washed up on his shore,
there's no time to get into his life.back to top
Carry You
green river flows
like grass melting
later it will run black
down its track
into an ocean
she stans on the bridge
dimlight on her back

someday
I will carry you...

I want to float higher
above waves of electric wires
stare down onto the street
see a drunk with kiln-glazed eyes
tell me about the girl I should meet

someday
I will carry you...back 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
Time Served
hold up the firing line
hold steady on the trigger's time
walk away counting backwards from nine
holdin' his breath so to start his own dying

[CHORUS:]
time served
to the ones that left you here

no people here, only names
soon to be put to numbers so it's one and the same
it's anyone's game as long as the fire flickers
the throat stickers, they place their bet
the trouble is that no one's added it up quite yet
cause when they do, when they do it'll be a

riot and the wire is down
hold up for the fury to sound
hold up you head from the ground
or they'll keep you on it

your time's served
to the one's that left you here

from tower to wall to guard to guard to wall
ever ready for th fire to fall
the confiners haven't seen the sun since
the lifers let got of their irrelevent innocence

but long before a single round was shot
word was spread from block to block to cell block
they're going to take him
and make an example of him for the escapees to fear

the incoming of the
incoming of the gun
oncoming of the year
you either die on the inside or trying to get out
the choice is yours, the choice is hereback to top
