The 11Th Hour
Hey sister do you know what time it was when you finally seen all your broken
dreams come crashing down your door they demand an answer and they demand it
quick or the questions fade and the wasted days come crawling back for more
do you know where the power lies? and who pulls the strings do you know where
the power lies it starts and end with you the face of isolation well well this
one you recognize well you can't get staright it's a lonely place and it's one
you do despise boredom is for sale now and helplessness you feel it's a
wounded dove and the hawks are above blood splattered on a reel to reel I was
almost over my world was almost gone in a sudden rush I coul almost touch the
things that I'd done wrong my sungle's made of concrete through silence I
could feel my aim is true I will walk on through these mountains made of steelback to top
Roots Radicals
Took the 60 bus out of downtown Cambell Ben Zandito he was on there he was

wriers where they sparing for change I started thinkin' you know I started
drinkin' you know I don't remember too much of that day somethin' struck me

If you wanna make the move then you better come in it's just the ability to
reason that wears so thin living and dying and the stories that are true the
secrets to a good life is knowing when you're through black coat, white shoes,
clackhat, cadillac the boy's a time bomb he's back in the hole where they got
him living like a rat but he's smarter than that nine lives like a cat take
him to the youth authority home first thing you learn is that you got to make
it in this world alone now he's gotten out he's gotten free he's gotta go
gotta car 21 years old he's runnin' #'s from the bar his pager's beepin' he's
got in deep in what ever he can move on in you know that kid's a creepin' in
tears come from the razor that's been tattooed below his eye his mother cries
she knows that he is strong enough to die he's rollin' in the Cadillac it's
midnight sunroof is down three shots rung out the herd's deal the new king is
crowned.back to top
Olympia, WA
Hangin' out with Lars on 6th street he knew I was in trouble I was feeling
much like the devil there was something burnin' deep inside of me ran into
three Puerto Ricans these girls took us to the funhouse where we played a
lonely pinball machine hangin' on the corner of 52nd and Broadway cars passin'
by but none of them seem to be goin' my way New York City well I wish I was on
a highway back to Olympia...I'm having a hard time understanding it gets all
too demanding she's all gone and I'm stranded something burning deep inside of
me all I know it's 4'o'clock and she ain't never showed up and I watched a
thousand people go home from work how many times will it take me before I go
crazy before I lose everything something burning deep inside of me ran into
three Puerto Ricans those girls took us to the funhouse I don't wanna be alone

Junkie Man
The common man doesn't suffer pain like this only the soul that has never been

Ruby Soho
Echos of reggae comin' through my bedroom wall havin' a party up next door
but I'm sittin here all alone two lovers in the bedroom and the others start
to shout all I got is this blank stare and that don't carry no cloud at all
destination unknown ruby soho he's singin' and she's there to lend a hand he's
seen his name on the marquee but she will never understand once again he's
leavin' and she's there with a tear in her eye embraces with a warm gesture
it's time to say good-bye destination unknown ruby soho Ruby's heart ain't
bleedin' cause she knows the feeling is gone she's not the only one who knew
there's somethin' wrong her lover's in the distance as she wipes a tear from
her eye Ruby's fading out she disappears it's time, time to say good-bye

Daly City Train
He was an artist and a writer and a poet and a friend in a man's life he will
take a fall but how low he goes it just depends he's shooting dope in the
men's room at the station daly city train have you ever seen an angel well I
know I have they'll stay here for a while and then they'll fly away Jackyl had
a beer in his hand last time I seen him when he rolled the dice he never
thought twice never thought twice about being here some grown up and some grow
old but what about the kid who never learned the rules spent all these years
on this earth when you look back it's just a flicker of time Jackyl was one
of the one's that he was one of the one's that was already saved through all
the evil and wreckage he maintained a sense of himself some men are in prison
even though they walk the streets at night other men who got the lockdown are
free as a bird in flightback to top
Journey To The End Of The East Bay
Reconcile to the belief consumed in sacred ground for me there wasn't always a
place to go but there was always an urgent need to belong all these bands and
all these people all these frieds and we were equals but what you gonna do
when everyone goes on without you to the end I'll journey to the end started
in '87 ended in '89 you got a garage or an amp we'll play anytime it was just
the four of us yea the core of us too much attention unavoidably destroyed us
four kids on tour three thousand miles in a four door car not knowing what was
going years it would turn out like this hell no no preminition could have seen
this my friend came from far away from New Orleans into the East Bay he said
this is a Mecca I said this ain't no mecca man this place is fucked three
months go by he had no home he had no food he was all alone matty said fool me
once shame on you he said fool me twice he went back to New Orleansback to top
She's Automatic
The way that she moves well I was aroused impowered, impassioned by every move
it's cold outside we need a place to hide go into the club to thaw out for the
night she's automatic the way that she moves she asked me if I would stand by
her side like glue that I would till the end of the night my head was spinnin'
a million miles an hour the chance I was takin' I get anxious around her she
put her head on my shoulder I started to hold her swingin' and swayin' the
morning beganback to top
Old Friend

As Wicked
I saw an old man on the street he was in a dumpster lookin' for somethin' to
eat he moved so slow like a dyin' dream like a machinist who got caught in
the machine I saw this lady and she was cryin' she said it's hard when someone
you love is dyin' I saw this kid who was about 5 years old he was in the park
all alone he was cold there's something coming around as wicked as it may seem
as wicked as anything could be I know this girl she's barely alive she's all
haggard she's only twenty-five she said she never had a friend before I said
"hey girl I'll be your friend but who's keepin' score" I saw this other little
girl on the phone her mother comforts her from far from home the little girl
was very hesitant her best friend lie dead on the pavement I always end up
back on the hill lookin' down at the landfill I always go there when I can my
friend Marty said Tim you're a lucky manback to top
Avenues And Alleyways
I figured out the problem but you can't take my heart it's in the city behind
yea the problem is you you didn't see us comin' now there's nothin' you can do
times are gonna change, change or step aside it's my point of view that took
you by surprise the sun's comin up yea the new dawn arrives a new generation
standing stand with anger in their eyes no love in the city because there's
no connection been stricken with disease a racial infection I'm a battering
ram comin' through to you in every alleyway on every avenue actions could
erase all the fear that we suffer people segregated no one understands each
other he's a different color but we're the same kid I will treat him like my
brother he will treat me like his well an eye for an eye yea a tooth for a
tooth brother against brother should be singin' with the group the inner
cities burnin' yea it's screamin' black and blue the power and the passion of
a million youth figured out the problem yea the problem is you you din't see
us comin' now there's nothin' you can do he's a different color but we're the
same kid I will treat him like my brother he will treat me like his all the
blood that spills of all the guts that fly the media paints a picture that
stands pits dogs against cats now who is responsible the power in the issue
the force is unstoppableback to top
The Way I Feel About You
Pick me back up just to throw me back down apoogies too like when you're up
against the wall compassion heals while duplicity kills you say I'm different
the only thing different is the way I feel about you You moved up the ladder
at a very rapid speed we mived methodically and calmly when you got to the top
you see enemies if I knew back then what I know that it would all turn out
like this I'd sit back and I'd watch you squirm cause you say I'm different
the only thing different is the way I feel about you.....back to top
