Song X
Hey ho here we go, we're on the road to never
Where life's a joy for girls and boys and only will get better.
Hey ho here we go along the road to never.

Romeo and juliet, the doctor and his case
Without a plan they left the van and there were laid to waste.
Hey ho away we go along the road to never.

The priest was there with sandy hair, religion by his side
He saw his law was broken, the punishment was applied
Hey ho away we go along the road to never,
Hey ho away we go we're on the road to never.

He held her hand and wished her well although his heart was aching,
The camera rolled, the print was bold, the holy war was breaking.
It's hey ho here we go we're the road to never,
Where life's a joy for girls and boys and only will get better.

[hey ho away we go along the road to never,
Hey ho away we go we're on the road to never.]repeat

The priest was there with sandy hair, religion by his side
He saw his law was broken, the punishment was appliedback to top
Act of Love
The fruit of love was in the future
Around the corner and over the hill
The act of love was slowly pounding, slowly pounding, slowly pounding.

The holy war was slowly building
Heroes leaving for the great crusade
Seek reward in the ever after, ever after, ever after.

Don't wanna have to lose you baby
Don't want to have to take you back
You know I'll never lose you baby, abuse you baby, use you baby.

You know I'll always help you baby, but you know I just can't do that.
I know I said I'd help you baby, here's ny wallet, call me sometime.

Act of love... (4x)

The fruit of love was in the future
Around the corner and over the hill
The act of love was slowly pounding, slowly pounding, slowly pounding.

Act of love... (4x)back to top
I'm the Ocean
I'm an accident, I was driving way too fast
Couldn't stop though, so I let the moment last
I'm for rollin', I'm for tossin' in my sleep
It's not guilt though, it's not the company I keep.

People my age, they don't do the things I do
They go somewhere, while I run away with you
I got my friends, and I got my children too
I got her love, she's got my love too.

I can't hear you, but I feel the things you say
I can't see you, but I know what's in my way
Now I'm floatin' 'cause I'm not tied to the ground
Words I've spoken seem to leave a hollow sound.

On the long plain, see the rider in the night
See the chieftain, see the braves in cool moonlight
Who will love them when they take another life
Who will hold them when they tremble from the knife.

Voicemail numbers on an old computer screen
Rows of lovers parked forever in a dream
Screaming sirens echoing across the bay
To the old boats, from the city far away.

Homeless heroes walk the streets of their own town
Rows of zeroes on a field that's turning brown
The play baseball, they play football under lights
They play card games and wew watch them every night.

Need distraction, need romance and candlelight
Need random violence, need entertainment tonight
Need the evidence, want the testimony of
Expert witnesses on the brutal crimes of love.

I was too tired to see the news when I got home
Puzzled the curtain, fell into bed alone
Started dreaming, saw the rider once again
In the doorway where she stood and watched for him, watched for him.

I'm not present, I'm the drug that makes you dream
I'm an aerostar, I'm a cutlass supreme
In the wrong lane, trying to turn against the flow
I'm the ocean, I'm the giant undertow
I'm the ocean, I'm the ocean, I'm the giant undertow
I'm the ocean, I'm the giant undertow
I'm the ocean (6x)back to top
Big Green Country
Across the plain flew the lone grey rider, leather bag pounding on his back
Above the clouds the moon was climbing higher, a pack of wolves wanted their money back.

With folded arms the chief stood watching, painted braves slid down the hill
In his ears the spirit talking, as they closed in for an easy kill.

At the house, the door was wide open, wind blew curtains off the rod
She was waiting and hoping, she was praying to her god.

He was luckier than most men, he was barely in his prime
As she stood in the doorway, her long dress flowing, he would make it this time.

Over the hill in the big green country, that's the place where the cancer cowboys ride
Pure as driven snow before it got him, sometimes I feel like he's all right.

Sometimes I feel like a piece of paper, sometimes I feel like my own name
Sometimes I feel different later, sometimes I feel I feel just the same.back to top
Truth Be Known
Saw your friend working in this hotel,
Says he used to know you when
And your dreams
Lucky as they seemed
They all turned their back on him
Truth be known.

Truth be known
Way I feel tonight
Living in this backstreet town
'bout my dreams
They all seem to fade as soon as I put my money down
Truth be known.

When the fire that was once your friend burns your fingers to the bone
And your song reaches a sudden end echoing through right and wrong
Truth be known, truth be known.back to top
Downtown
There's a place called downtown
Where the hippies all go
And they dance the charleston
And they do the limbo
Yeah, the hippies all go there
'cause they want to be seen
It's like a room full of pictures
It's like a psychedelic dream

Downtown, let's go downtown...
Downtown tonight
Downtown, let's have a party...
Downtown at night

Yeah it's right around the corner
Up and down the hill
When you hear the band playin'
It's gonna give you a chill
Give your money to the gateman
Young blood in his eye
Hold on to your baby
When you slip into the sky

Downtown, let's go downtown...
Downtown tonight
Downtown, hear the band playin'
Downtown all right

Jimi's playin' in the back room
Led zeppelin on stage
There's a mirrol ball twirlin'
And a note from page
Like a water-washed diamond
In a river of sin
Goin' down like a whirlpool
When you get sucked in

Downtown, let's go downtown...
Downtown tonight
Downtown, hear the band playin'
Downtown all right

Downtown, let's go downtown...
Downtown tonight
Downtown, let's have a party...
Downtown all rightback to top
What Happened Yesterday
Can't forget what happened yesterday
Though my friends say don't look back
I can feel it coming through me
Like an echo, like a photographback to top
Peace and Love
Peace and love, flying so high
Peace and love, too young to die
Peace and love, now you decide
Stay for the children
You don't really want to go
Can't feel it pulling like you did, peace and love...

Peace and love, only a ride
Strength is gone, dying inside
Tell me now, what did you find?
Found love in the people
Livin' in a sacred land
Found love in the people, peace and love...

Found love...saw my mistake...broke walls of pain to walk again...
I saw the dream, I saw the wake...we shared it all but not the take...

Peace and love, lennon's goodbye
Over now, living in time
A broken bell, a nursery rhyme
Deserted by heroes
Strangers in your own land
No way to deny you, to deny you...peace and love...

I took the oath 'till I had most
I took what's left, I gave it breath
I had it all once I gave it back...gave it back...back to top
Throw Your Hatred Down
Here in the conscious world we place our theories down
Why man must bring us to our knees
Before he sees the weakness of his sinful plan
The power in his hand
Will never touch a friend
Throw your hatred down (2x)

Meanwhile in the underworld, the weaknesses are seen
By peasants and presidents who plan the counter-scheme
Children in the schoolyard finish choossing teams
Divided by their dreams while a tv screams
Throw your weapons down (2x)

The wheel of fortune keeps on rollin' down
The sstreet that's paved with sinful plans
There but for circumstance may go you or i
Dresssed in gold lame
Find a place to stay
Throw your hatred down (3x)
Throw your weapons downback to top
Scenery
Looking at the grave
At the scenery around you
Home of the brave
Sometimes they leave you
like they found you
Sometimes they worship you
Sometimes they
tear your houses down
Sometimes they comfort you
Sometimes they
spread your life around

Nothing you can see
That they
won't try to give you
Land of the free
Where the legend
will outlive you
When you earn their trust
When you are truly in danger
Where greed and lust
Have never been a stranger

[solo]

Home of the brave
That's where
heroes need protection
Media image slaves
Live by random selection
You sell your heart
But that's not
the price of freedom
Where things are useful
Only when you need them

Where will you go
When you need
to make some changes
Who will you love
In a world
of constant strangers
I'll go with you
If you want
to take a hero home
I'll stay behind
If you want
to take a hero home

Looking at the grave
At the scenery around you
Home of the brave
Sometimes they leave you
like they found you

[solo]

Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the braveback to top
Fallen Angel
Fallen angel, who's your savior tonight?
You're surrounded by these walls and neon lights
Hungry people move like waves behind the beat
Where's the big drum? where's the feel of body heat? (2x)back to top
