Go
Words and music: amy ray
Note: this song is a reincarnation of problem child

Through the dustbowl through the debt
Grandma was a suffragette
Blacklisted for her publication
Blacklisted for my generation
Go, go, go

Raise your hands, raise your hands high
Don't take a seat don't stand aside
This time don't assume anything
Just go, go, go

So feed the fire and fan the flame
I know the kids can stand the rain
I know the kids are still upsetters
Cause rock is cool but the struggle is better
I said go, go, go

Raise your hands, raise your hands high
Don't take a seat don't stand aside
This time don't assume anything
This time don't assume anything
I said go, go, go

The truth is I was afraid . . .
. . .i felt inferior. . .
. . .i felt I excelled in competing with others
And I knew instantly that these people
Were not competing at all, that they were acting in a
Strange, powerful trance of movement together.
And I was filled with longing to act
With them and with the fear that I could not.

Did they tell you it was set in stone
And that you would end up alone
Use your years to psych you out
You're too old to care, they're too young to count
Did they tell you you would come undone
If you tried to touch the sun
Undermine the underground
You're too old to care they're too young to count
I said go, go, go

Gone Again
Think I'll bag that trip for two
Pack it up to kakadu
Honey, it's not for the weather
Or the lack of loving you
I got all this in between
Something I did not forsee
All the deals I made don't matter
If I can't just let you be

Gone again
Gone again
There ain't no way
That I'm gonna let this heart mend
Gone again

I walked in king's cross for awhile
Gave a junkie girl a smile
We both traded in for danger
Or the company of strangers
She said all her family
Was at the welfare agency
Then she swindled my last twenty
For a kiss and some poetry

Gone again
Gone again
'cause there ain't no way
That I'm gonna let this heart mend
Gone again

If I don't make kakadu
I'll be at the rainbow room
And I'll be courting some disaster
With the melbourne wrecking crew
Honey all this is to say
That every dog don't got it's day
If we take the love we're given
(take the love)
And we throw it all away

It's gone again
It's gone again
'cause there ain't no way
That I'm gonna let this heart mend
It's gone again
It's gone again
'cause there ain't no way
That I'm gonna let this heart mend
Gone againback to top
Trouble
Trouble came around here
Here in the south we fix something to eat
Steam risin' up off the greenery
And we welcome the strangers we meet

Alien sick growing in these walls
Like moss in a crack that time made
I brush a guy in the airport
Whistling it's a small world after all
And the prices are higher
But the kids still selling lemonade

Get to the point of it
(get to the point of it)
Get to the sense of it
(get to the sense of it)
I'm in a hurry
To get through it

I am in trouble
(I am in trouble)
I am in trouble
(I am in trouble)

A hurricane flag flappin' in a bad storm
Same color of the spider underneath my nail that bit me in my dream
And who would take out the dominican republic
And send god's sweet children floating down a poison stream

A secret society of conference rooms
I pledge my allegiance to the dollar
And when the clergy take a vote oh the gays will pay again
Yeah 'cause there's more than one kind of criminal white collar

So get to the point of it
(get to the point of it)
Get to the sense of it
(get to the sense of it)
I'm in a hurry to get through it

One day the war will stop
And we'll grow a peaceful crop
And a girl can get a wife
And we can bring you back to life

Sacks of flour and rice or poker chips
Greasy palms or systems underhanding
(...shelter...)
And maybe we'll take a walk on pluto
Yeah but be no closer to the understanding
(...what I wish...)

Get to the point of it
(get to the point of it)
Get to the sense of it
(get to the sense of it)
I'm in a hurry to get through it

Yeah

I am in trouble
(I am in trouble)
I am in trouble
(I am in trouble)
I am in trouble
(I am in trouble)
I am in trouble

Sister
Sister I'm heading out of alabama
So you better think fast
The wind is gonna pick me up now
The rain won't slack
Headin' down to georgiaback to top
Peace Tonight
Honey pick the red corner shoes
The ones that hardly ever get used
I knelt in front of my whole collection
And I'm picking you a special selection
On a no news is good news middle of mid-year day
I feel no ill with time to kill I wanna play

Let's make peace tonight
(let's make peace tonight)
The moon is bare and shining bright
(moon is shining bright)
Let's make peace tonight in a good time
(let's make peace tonight)

I'm callin' on my good friends today
You know the drive's about an hour away
And we'll be pitching up a tent by the trees
And we'll be wading in the river to our knees
Oh now love's been planted and we're checking out the yield
It's two black dogs and a white one their running in the field

Let's make peace tonight
(let's make peace tonight)
The moon is bare and shining bright
(moon is shining bright)
Well let's make peace tonight in a good time
(let's make peace tonight)

Oh
Oh
Oh

Well we used to have some money but we spent it
(used to have some money but we spent it)
Yeah so when we want to have it then we rent it
(when we want to have it we rent it)
But we're cuttin' up the rug and I know you love me love me
(we're cuttin' up the rug and I know you love me)
And the best of everything here is free
(everything here is free)
Oh when things get messy then we tidy up the room
We'll be no stranger to that dustpan and the broom

Let's make peace tonight
(let's make peace tonight)
The moon is bare and shining bright
(moon is shining bright)
Let's make peace tonight
(let's make peace tonight)
The moon is bare and shining bright
(moon is shining bright)
Let's make peace tonight in a good time

Ozilline
Oh ozilline
The moon is almost full
And you don't need a torchlight
To see into these woods
Now sister bring the medicine
To keep you from decline
But it's the waxing and the waining
That's always on your mind

I said oh ozilline
(oh ozilline)
I feel for you
I said oh ozilline
(oh ozilline)
I feel for you

As soon as the corn's in
The deer will come to feed
And when the berry ripens
The bird will come to eat
You build by the river
It's pretty but you'll pay
'cause the springtime brings the flood plain
And your cutbank washes away

I said oh ozilline
(oh ozilline)
I feel for you
I said oh ozilline
(oh ozilline)
I feel for you

I had to put the dog down
Before I hit the road
Yeah I watched that sweet old life
Become a bag of bones
So when you're body's broken
And your heart wants to give in
And you hear that hoot owl callin'
Just like she was a friend

I said oh ozilline
(oh ozilline)
I feel for you
I said oh ozilline
(oh ozilline)
I feel for you

I said ozilline she don't let you cry
If you ask her where it hurts
I said ozilline she don't let you cry
If you ask her where it hurts
She said what a blessed skyback to top
We Are Together
The girl's known trouble
The wind's to blame
It blew her to anytown usa
That's my middle name

And where we go
Remains nameless
A motion picture
Alive and framelss

And we are together
Finally
And the dog caught up with
The rabbit is laughing hysterically
And we are together
You and me
Yeah eah ah
Yeah

We are together
Together

She's got that sadness
She twinkles like a witch
And you conjure a love spell
I'm gonna give a five-year itch
Low to the ground
High in the holler
(we are together)
In any old february
(together)
Hot under the collar
(collar)

And we are together
Finally
And the dog caught up with
The rabbit is laughing hysterically
And we are together
You and me
Yeah eah ah
Yeah

The setting sun at sadness beach
Just in view and out of reach
Resign myself to solitude
When love is hard to get and rude
And though I said I did not care
(oh oh oh oh)
It was way before we'd gotten there
Winded by the fruitless chase
(oh oh oh oh)
Until I saw you face to face
(face to face)

Together
Finally
And the dog caught up with
The rabbit is laughing hysterically
And we are together
You and me
(.... the whole world)

We are together
Finally
(finally, finally)
And the dog caught up with
The rabbit is laughing hysterically
And we are together

Cold Beer and Remote Control
All of my days have been misspent
Stuffing out the sofa and the antenna's bent
Inside my heart's bustin' out at the seams
I work for the impossible american dream

I got a job at the grocery store
A few bucks an hour and not much more
The world comes in just to take things away
They eat it all up and then they sleep into day

I try not to care I would lose my mind
Running 'round the same thing time after time
Only two things bound to soothe my soul
Cold beer and remote control

Now once upon a time I was nobody's fool
(once upon a fool)
Two jobs and showing up for school
I guess it comes apart so little by little
You don't know your there till your stuck in the middle
I try not to care I would lose my mind
Running 'round the same thing time after time
And only two things bound to soothe my soul
Cold beer and remote control

Sit down
(sit down sit down)
The room is dark
(the room is dark)
The blurry graffiti on the benches
Across at the public park
The plastic's black and buttoned
(the plastic's black)
The haze is blue
(the haze is blue)
And all I want is nothing to do

'cause it's a long walk to the bus stop
It's a long wait for the turning clock
It's a two-tired car sitting up on the blocks
And things I put aside like that pile of rocks

I try not to care I would lose my mind
Running 'round the same thing time after time
And only two things bound to soothe my soul
Cold beer and remote control

Yes I try not to care I would lose my mind
(all of my days have been misspent)
Running round the same thing time after time
(stuffing out the sofa and the antennas bent)
And only two things bound to soothe my soul
(inside my hearts busting out at the seams)
Cold beer and remote control
(I work for the impossible american dream)
Yeah

Cold beer and remote control
(I said I guess it comes apart so little by little yeah)
Yeah
Beer and remote control

Compromise
You wear
The cloth
Of finest lands
The touch of women the toil of hands

Undress
Me now
Before I bend
From the weight of everyman

When I'm walking through this world
I need to hold your hand
Let me take you on this ride
I hope you understand
I'm not asking for a compromise

Now you
Defend
Exhume
Begin again
It's the riddle of a skeleton

We're all
Diseased
So count the coup
I can't image stopping you

When I'm walking through this world
I need to hold your hand
Let me take you on this ride
I hope you understand
I'm not asking for a compromise

So the earth
We scorch
We breath
Find some comfort on our knees

You find
Your worth
In words that wind
Pleasures I don't comprehend

When I'm walking trough this world
I need to hold your hand
Let me take you on this ride
I hope you understand
I'm not asking for a compromise
Asking for a compro
Asking for a compromiseback to top
Andy
Andy
Do you love me
Do you think about it
Will you say
Turning brushwood
Into blazes
Turning summer grass
Into hay
Turning sharply
Past the graveyard
To the lakefront
With the black waves
Licking up the stones
To the swayed back
Screened in front porch
Who could ever stay the weight
Of flesh and bones

Andy
Aren't you tired
From the sun and rain
And river soaking you
From the beer cans
On your dashboard
And the bullet hole
Glass spiderweb
Staining your rear view
I have watched you
Watch an empty road
Is it only her
Upon which you all
Of you is depending
To fill your twenty
Hour work day
While all the fences
In this county still need mending
Hey

And in the night
I do my checking
And fix the broken parts
With visions of rare beauty
But in my heart I know I'm second
Forever fixed in your pursuit
It is my duty
Hey

Andy
Will you toss me
A little scrap of something
That I can taste
Instead of dust from
All the leaving
And the smell of summer
Lying here to waste
Under the burnt pyre
Of all the cast away
The tiny shoots will spring
Like questions
Will you take me
Out to the fenced hill
Sprinkled with horses
Wild in resistence to the taming
Will you break me
Will you break meback to top
Faye Tucker
On the night they killed faye tucker
I was gambling away my last dime
Yeah well I pulled down the lever
And I sent up a prayer
That my luck would not be denied
My luck would not be denied

So roll out the head of faye tucker
Yeah well never you mind what they say
Well you may be reborn
But it's all just for scorn
And that's what you'll take to the grave
That's what you'll take to the grave

Well the minister wants you to live now
And the governor wants you to fry
And whatever it was that you thought might occur
Well they got something else on their minds
They got something else on their minds

If you live they gonna make you a campaigner
(if you live they gonna make you a campaigner)
If you die they gonna make you a grave
(if you die they gonna make you a grave)
Either way it goes down
(either way it goes down)
Your life's not your own
And that's why killin' don't pay
(hey your life's not your own)
That's why killin' don't pay

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I thought I heard the angels bells
But they were just the hounds of hell
I thought I heard the angels bells
But they were just the hounds of hell

What did you learn faye tucker
Yeah what will you take from this world
Yeah well mercy could prove us
But nothing would move us
To rise above just being cruel
To rise above just being cruelback to top
