BACK ON THE STREETS (“Total Control”, 1987; “Back On The Streets”, 1987)

Someone has taken your love, it’s true isn’t it?
Its not just talk that I hear
And when I see him build his wall around you I know the end is near
But tell me that I’m wrong and it’s all in my mind
You’ve known all along and it just makes my blood run wild and I’m dying
So I’m back, back on the streets, yes, I’m back to find somebody new
I’m back, back on the streets, girl, I’m back and I’m over you
I’ve lost your love girl and all that I live for, I see it in your eyes
and when I see you walking out that door, girl, another part of me dies
It’s time to move on and I know it for sure
The feeling is gone and I won’t be hurt anymore and I’m not going to fall
So I’m back, back on the streets, yes, I’m back to find somebody new
I’m back, back on the streets, girl, I’m back and I’m over you
So I’m back, back on the streets, yes, I’m back to find somebody new
I’m back, I’m back on the streets, girl, I’m back and I’m over you

BAD REPUTATION (live) (“Back On The Streets”, 1987; “Live In Stockholm”, 1990)

You got a bad reputation
that’s the word out on the town
It gives a certain fascination
but it can only bring you down
You better turn yourself around, turn yourself around
Turn it upside down, turn yourself around
You had bad breaks well that’s tough luck
You play too hard too much rough stuff
You’re too sly so cold
That bad reputation has made you old
Turn yourself around, turn yourself around
Turn it upside down, turn yourself around

BETTER DAY (“Optimus”, 2005)

Out on my own again now this time I take no blame
Diving in a sea of pain now through hell I feel betrayed
Waiting so long, I ain’t no saint, nothing to say
tryin’ to find a better day
It’s time to go now, don’t follow my way
Do you hear them callin’? I don’t feel quite the same
Ridin’ the waves of pain now children of yesterday, oh Lord!
Fallin’ apart, loosin’ the grip, maskin’ the shame
living a life whitin the sorrow
Do you hear them callin’? There’s nothing left to say
Searchin’ for a new tomorrow, finding a better day
You have to understand I’m trapped in this living hell
All the lies will always to remain, now it’s time to you to fail
You’re locked inside your prison cell, nothing will ever be the same again
Searchin’ for a new tomorrow, finding a better day

BLACKSCAPE (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

I go down to the water
listen to the ocean there from far away
Tales of old they remind me
I know you were right there by my side disappeared
Your killing yourself you will soon see
We’re looking through the eyes of the age
Close your eyes and I’ll see you in another place
when we’re headed from the storm
A million years from now we’ll know
Are you leaving forever?
You’ve reached the end of the line, my friend
You know the answers are with you
beyond a blackscape of stars away
I remember the first time I saw you
it was like a thunder in the sky
Then I realized that I would be free
into your spirit I will soon be
Now I’ve found you in this strange place
From the depths we are reborn
A million years from now we’ll know
Are you leaving forever?
You’ve reached the end of the line, my friend
You know the answers are with you
beyond a blackscape of stars away
Ahhh, in the ocean where the creeps run fast
Ahhh, the memories they will surpass
Ahhh, I long to be with you at last
Ahhh, it ain’t easy when you’re living fast, oh yes
Are you leaving forever?
You’ve reached the end of the line, my friend
You know the answers are with you
Beyond a blackscape of stars away

BLIND (“Total Control”, 1987; “Live In Stockholm”, 1990; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

You have always taken more than you need
You only want to satisfy your greed
You don’t care if my heart bleed
Oh, I know I’ve been blind, oh, it’s all gone through
Oh, I’m out of my mind, oh, (I) don’t know what to do
Oh, I gave you my heart but you tried for my soul
It didn’t take long before I lost control
Your love sure has taken toll
Oh, I know I’ve been blind, oh, it’s all gone through
Oh, I’m out of my mind, (I) don’t know what to do
The look in your eyes can make my blood turn to water
Sometimes I believe you’re the devils own daughter
I was led like a lamb to the slaughter
Oh, I know I’ve been blind, oh, it’s all gone through
Oh, I’m out of my mind, (I) don’t know what to do

BORN AGAIN (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

Something’s ’bout to take me over, just about to reel me in
Every night I shake and shiver, how was it you crawled under my skin
I’m going fast, breaking down, I built my world around you
I won’t look back, pushing through, can’t waste my whole life on you
How long did you lie to me, bittersweet this misery
I was blind, now I can see, on the count of ten I’m born again
Girl, you used to feel my head with your tricks and poison pen
Now I can’t recall the reasons I could never get enough
Too far gone, loosing ground, I built my world around you
I can’t go back, crashing through, can’t waste my whole life on you
How long did you lie to me, bittersweet this misery
I was blind, now I can see, on the count of ten I’m born again
How long did you lie to me, bittersweet this misery
I was blind, now I can see, on the count of ten I’m born again, born again

CENTER OF BALANCE (“Worlds Away”, 1996; “Where the Grass Is Green”, 1996; “Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

I’ve watched the life in the land
where Pharaon reigned
Known messiahs lead the common man
Watched the ocean turn to sand again
from the beginning and the end
So taste the light it’s never bad
Don’t try to guide it now it’s all arranged
Can’t you see your way will never lost
People roam the earth & never gain
There in the parting in the ocean
Center of all that’s displayed
before the creation you’ll never know
Patiently waiting your fate Meet me at the station
Travel in the soul, tearing out the farm
Held me down for way too long
Counteract the stranglehold
She’s still holding on till fall
Been all around the place to find an aim
Driven out, caged and tied
You’ll know we all leave the same
Can you know what’s real and lead the way
Slipped off the boat in the ocean
Maybe you’ll wash on the shore
taking a trip to the overload
Run out of space going home
Meet me at the station, travel in the soul
Gravity on the other side
Held me down for way too long
Counteract the stranglehold
She’s still holdning on and on
She’s weary, she’ll rise, she breaks, she cries

CHANGE WILL COME (“Optimus”, 2005)

Come and live with me, come take my hand
you’ll be the one that understands
I will land you’ll see, hope will be there for me
and with the early dawn I’ll find you
You will be the river runnin’ dry
hurt by the lies, hurt by the flames
Don’t need no bad lies, joy will come you’ll see
Don’t need no bad lies, change will come you’ll see
When all hope is gone over with and done
I will look in the crystal ball
Where’s the honesty? Let your soul live in me
and you won’t live in misery
You will be the river runnin’ dry
hurt by the lies, hurt by the flames
Don’t need no bad lies, joy will come you’ll see
Don’t need no bad lies, change will come you’ll see
Come and live with me, come take my hand
you’ll be the one that understands

CHASE DOWN THE MOON (“Optimus”, 2005)

In the cobweb of your room I sit here with you, I will tell you why
Everytime that I’m with you the truth is comin’ through, I can’t tell a lie
In the lighter room darkness from the world seems to fade
Shadows from the moon come in from the rain
How long until it’s fadin’? So long this ride
See the lines on your face as you lay their to waste
there’s no reason why
As the seasons start to change it’s time to rearrange v
and you wonder why
I will stand alone, let the shades of violence fade away
In the early dawn nothing seems to matter
How long until it’s fadin’? So long this ride
Hold on no more waiting chase down the moon, oh…
How long until it’s fadin’? So long this ride
Hold on no more waiting chase down the moon
How long until it’s fadin’? So long this ride, oh…

C.Y.R. (“Worlds Away”, 1996; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

Now that you’re considering your rights
Once we’ve paid government to steal
Would suffocate your breathing, if you realized the facts
you don’t even know half of the deal
Now that you have spoken up, think you’ve gotten through?
How all the hearts are drowned
by the many modes of materialistic nature
Who can see the truth?
Why can you force now, to the surface brings a war
May God be on your side, He’ll stop the wheels and cars
Maybe save the next world from the unwritten law
The violence in America
Now that you have woken up, do you know who you are?
You could be digging yourself from a hole in the ground
and never face it
Come up for air and go back down too far
Time is an end, taking all demand
May God be on your side, do what they tell you all
No longer in the safety zone, from the unwritten law
Smile for the camera
Here, you took around before, flies are coming
Out of the seedy street corners of what used to be a free land
Gratification sensory overland
Chained to a source of misery that always eludes you
Take these guns, obey the law
going for the ride, just do what they tell you all
Going for the ride, take these guns, obey the law
Take these guns, obey the law
Going for the ride, going, time to wake up, wake up

COUNTING ON YOUR LOVE (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “In Your Eyes”, 1992)

Sitting in your waiting room as a patient to your heart
Hung up by some circumstances setting us apart
You’ve got the moves to remember
You opened up my mind
Make me believe it one more day
Come on and touch my life
Let me be your private toy, let me be your lover boy
Play me with your surgeon hands, manipulate, incinerate
You’ve got the moves to remember
You opened up my mind
Make me believe it, one more day
Come on and touch my life
I’ve been counting, I’ve been counting on you love
I’ve been counting, I’ve been counting on your love
Sitting in your waiting room as a patient to your heart
Hung up by some circumstances setting us apart
You’ve got me wrapped round your finger
You’ve opened up my mind but don’t close that door
Cause I know what you need, oh how I need that cure
I’ve been counting, I’ve been counting on you love…

DISTANT VOICES (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “Face the Truth” – maxi single, 1992; “Face the Truth” – single, 1992)

I have seen you before, you’re a master of disguise
It must be you I can tell, by the look in your eyes
You should listen to me before you walk out of the door
I won’t surrender, I don’t wanna see you no more
Tell me I’m wrong, you’re in my heart just the same
Where have you gone, will I remember your name?
Distant voices unspoken words in my head
You have no choices…the things that you’ve done and you’ve said
Tonight I will fight to make everything right
No one will stand in my way
Distant voices calling your name, over and over again
Take my advise and go back to where you came
Cus I’ve had enough of the tears and pain
I have told you before now, I know you misunderstood
But you don’t remember and now that you’re going for good
I can’t go on, tell me that I’m only dreaming
Since you’ve been gone, will I remember your name?
Distant voices unspoken words in my head
You have no choices… the things that you’ve done and you’ve said
Tonight I will fight to make everything right
No one will stand in my way
Distant voices calling your name over and over again
Distant voices unspoken words in my head
You have no choices… the things that
you’ve done and you’ve said
Maybe someday I will see you again
somewhere someplace in time
No one will stand in my way
Distant voices calling your name, over and over again

DITCH QUEEN (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

All right
Ditch queen, she’s a danger scene, maybe just seventeen
She moves like something unreal, she thrieves on her sense of feel
She thinks she’s lady luck
She’s a ditch queen, and she likes to follow me
Well, look at those eyes, like a pussy cat
She’ll eat you alive, she’s love that
Well, watch out specially, wait and see
Give her one inch, you know she takes the whole thing in
Ditch queen, she’s a danger scene
She knows all of your wildest dreams
She’s painted with Maybelline, decked out like you’ve never seen
You know she likes to rock, she’s a ditch queen
And she loves my Continental
For a sniff of cocaine, she’ll do anything
and she knows where we’re staying, at the Holiday Inn
Well, she knows she doesn’t need to speak to impress you
She knows it ain’ther mind that’s deep
She, she’s so deep… She, she’s so deep… all right
You know she loves to roll, she’s a ditch queen
and she sure has the dope to know, she’s gonna show you the ditch
She’s a ditch queen, she’s a careful and distant lady
She’s got secrets, they just won’t wait
That’s the mistery she’s like you to penetrate
She, she’s so deep… She, she’s so deep… all right
Ditch queen, she’s a danger scene, ditch queen, just seventeen
Ditch queen, she’s a danger scene, ditch queen, full of Maybelline
Oh, she’s a ditch queen, oh yeah a ditch queen… All right, she’s a ditch queen

DOGS ARE BARKING (“Worlds Away”, 1996)

Out on the cycle as fast as it could go
in and out of traffic every unexpected road
I was running from the law, don’t recall the violation
Did I tell you about the day, the day I got away
Fall out of reach, now you can’t hear
Who’s to say you’re not really there
Maybe it’s time that someone tried to get through
The dogs are barking too early to make out anything of this
Mess I made now tumblin’ over
Tell me what I think I’ve missed
Why did you wait so long to find what we’ve all been missing?
Shouldn’t have waited all this time, maybe it’s all lost in your mind
Rolling around what’s all in place, trying to find what’s been erased
How many times that no one ever get through
Why did you wait so long to find what we’ve all been missing?
Couldn’t have waited all this time, maybe it’s all lost in your mind
Why did you wait so long to find what we’ve all been finding?
Couldn’t have waited all this time, it’s never too late to start your life

DON’T BELIEVE A WORD (live) (“Live In Stockholm”, 1990)

Don’t believe me if I tell you, not a word of this is true
Don’t believe me if I tell you especially if I tell you
that I’m in love with you
Don’t believe me if I tell you that I wrote this song for you
There might be just some other silly pretty girl
I’m singing it to
Don’t believe a word ’cause words are so ease to be spoken
And your heart is just like a promise
that was made to be broken
Don’t believe a word ’cause words can tell lies
And lies are no comfort when there’s tear in your eyes
Don’t believe me if I tell you not a word of this is true
Don’t believe me if I tell you especially if I tell you
that I’m in love with you
Don’t believe a word, oh please
don’t believe a word, oh don’t believe
Oh not a single word

ENDICA (REVISITED) (“Worlds Away”, 1996)

Been a long way to focus in overdrive
Sometimes you never wanna stop running down the tight rope
trying to hold down to the sides
We were blessed as though in heaven
but not an eye would look to see
We’re loved or rays of sunlight
no one cared to feel given all the right to live
but no one would receive
From beginning to end, starting from the finish line
May we all feel love still down in your soul and mine
From a far beyond the courtain, we’ve all seen the fake
and we’ve looked upon odd traces, many souls unawake
To know is sometimes a burden, to feel is a chance
blessed as though in heaven we wanted to be lost
Shown the right direction and turned the other way
givin’ all the right to live, but no one would receive
I did know forever, such a long time
I did know what I’m sayin’
It’s clear on our minds, clear on our minds
I did know forever, such a long time
I did know what I’m saying
It’s clear on our minds, it’s clear, yeah

ETERNAL FLAME (“Total Control”, 1987; “Live In Stockholm”, 1990)

There was a small light shape looking down at me
she kept on asking “where do you wanna be?”
I thought about it and I told her to wait
she said “it’s okay, but don’t wait too long”
I cried “what if I can’t make up my mind?”
she said “into the fire you go into eternal flames
into the fire, into the eternal fire”
Suddenly, there was a big black shape
it came to me and said “come on let’s go”
I said “wait a minute you can’t do this to me”
he looked back and said “oh, too late”
I’ve waited to long and I’m dying
into the fire I go, into the eternal flame
into the fire, into the eternal flame
I am dreaming, all of the emotion is gone and I have to go
into the eternal flame, into the fire I go, into eternal flame

FACE THE TRUTH (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “Face the Truth” – single, 1992; “Face the Truth” – maxi single, 1992; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

I’ve been waiting, waiting for the sunrise
I wipe the dust from my eyes
as night becomes the dawn
In the silence, I thought I heard you crying
And I just feel like dying
as I walk through the door is this some kind of dream
This can’t be what it seems
Where are you, where are you
I’m in the danger zone I’m out here all alone
What am I supposed to do?
Face the truth tell me can you
Face the truth in your life face the truth
Tell me what you gonna do with your life
I am praying that you’ll be waiting for me
Just roll the dice and you’ll see
’cause I’ll be waiting there
In the sunlight I will be at your side
It’s making alright I hope you understand
I just can’t lose control this is my heart and soul
Can’t you see, can’t you see
The perfect alibi just give it one more try
What am I supposed to do?
Face the truth tell me can you
Face the truth in your life face the truth
Tell me what you gonna do with your life
I’m in the danger zone I’m out here all alone
What am I supposed to do?
Face the truth tell me can you
Face the truth in your life face the truth
Tell me what you gonna do with your life
Face the truth tell me can you face the truth in your life
Face the truth tell me what you gonna do with your life

FORCED (“Optimus”, 2005)

You’ll be hanging around ‘cause you know I will go away
Life’s gonna come back if you know that for sure? Yeah
The world keeps on dying, nobody knows why
The sun will shine, it’s time for the wine
I was forced before, I was blind before
Well I know you got problems ‘cause things you have done, oh yeah
But if you want to drag me all over the floor, so long
Time burns with fire, as one as one
Sands of the storm it’s time for goodbyes
I was forced before, I was blind before

FREEDOM IS MY TRUTH (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

Aahhh turn your head around and see the light shining bright
Aahhh You draw it unto you all that you think and do it’s the law
What goes up comes down and ’round it all comes back to you
What’s in is out it’s me and you, freedom is my truth
Aahhh I saw you laugh at me and now the jokes on you
It feels alright
How could I have sympathized I internalized, I was confused
What goes up comes down and ’round it all comes back to you
What’s in is out It’s me and you, freedom is my truth
Aahhh look at your reflection
Is there someone there? What is your sign?
You’re not a face in the crowd, I see the lines on your face
Every time you come around, disappear with no trace
What goes up comes down and ’round, it all comes back to you
What’s in is out it’s me and you, freedom is my truth

FROM OUTSIDE IN (“Worlds Away”, 1996; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

What’s left of the world you brought and sold
Keep your face and remember all the lies you were told
Replaced all the clocks that found you, running late
Leave a note if you’re falling way behind
Leave us something we all can understand
For the short attention spans, who only wanted the world
and all that binds you here
Don’t be a slave to what always eludes you
Shining the cage to forget all about the life
You’ve gotta save it, what about the inside?
You can never rely on all that you can see
Out of touch with what you can feel
Only half of what you believe is real
Time to heal, to heal, to heal
So you’re laughing in the dark again
Looking from the outside in
For all the want of the world
And all its pleasure escapes
You got them, oh and lose them
Shining the cage to forget all about the life
You’ve gotta save it, what about the inside?
Sometimes I feel I’m holding only by a thread
Just about to break, but keep on moving
passed the overload, heading down that old bad road
making old mistakes, the wheels are burning
Ooh, to find the lead to find the place, place
place on wheels, to be found the place
To be found the place on the wheels
I only want the world, the world eluded me
I got burning of that eluded me
Shining the cage, forget all about your life
You’ve gotta save it, what about the inside?

GOOD MAN SHINING (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

Seems like mother Mary answers my prayer
I’m back in circulation
A bad reputation has colored my skin
Black finger tips are the blessing you bring
I gotta change my direction, people are paying my bail
I’m all out of luck, what am I gonna do…
I guess I never learn
Good man shining, it’s all over you
Good man shining, it’s coming through
Well my point of view is sex appeal
burning out like a spinning wheel
My sweet little angel my heart you can squeeze
Doctor, Doctor pleasem when I’m tired and lonely
My heart is out on the fence
The last thing I look for is your kind of love
I guess I never learn
Good man shining, it’s all over you
Good man shining, it’s coming through
I gotta change my direction
People are paying my bail
I’m all out of luck, what am I gonna do…
I guess I never learn

GOT MY EYES ON YOU (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

You really got something going, you really got a hold on me
Boil it down to perfection, seem to come naturally
You’re kicking my heart in motion, everytime you walk in view
You trigger that sweet emotion, I can’t get over you
Come take this trip with me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
You really got my senses reeling, you can make a grown man cry
Girl, I wanna trust the feeling, yeah, I wanna testify
Flames are getting higher and higher, I could feel it from the start
I just wanna build a fire, with every beat of my heart
Come do this thing with me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
I got my eyes on you, anything you want me to
Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me

Anything to make you see, come on and lay your love on me
Oh yeah, lay your love on me, lay your love on me

HALF WAY HOME (“Another Destination”, 1995)

It was a lonely night, air was restless
More electric feelin’ in my soul, tryin’ to shake the burnin’
I was losin’ the flight, the hangin’ on 9th St. callin’
The gang is losin’ control
Packed a little money, started the bike
Headed away from the west side
If only for one night, maybe the Lord will try to save me
May be time to listen got me goin’ crazy but I’m leavin’… leavin’…
I’m gonna shake this ground I’m on, nothin’s gonna break
this road I’ve led upon, can’t stop this trip I’m on
I’m half way home, half way gone
I’m tired and twisted, such a long ride
Heard the boys are busted, glad to be alive
Another day of ridin’, hope I’ll see my girl
Hope she isn’t under in someone else’s world
Headed for trouble, and I’m leavin’ it
Behind they’re seeing double, ahead I’ll win the race
Dealer is a loser, stealin’ is a shame
Bullets for the innocent, and I’m feelin’ the pain
I’m gonna shake this ground I’m on, nothin’s gonna break
this road I’ve led upon, can’t stop this trip I’m on
I’m half way home, half way gone
I’m gonna shake this ground I’m on, nothin’s gonna break
this road I’ve led upon, can’t stop this trip I’m on
I’m half way home, half way gone
I’m half way home, half way gone

HEALING RAYS (“Another Destination”, 1995)

As I wait for a sign to come fallin’ down on me from the sky
I’ve waited my life, know you gotta wait for it
Know you gotta wait for the light to come falling down with its healin’ rays
And I wait for a sign to come, fallin’ down on me from the sky
I’ve waited all my life

HEART OF STONE (“Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

I’ve told you once and I’ve told you twice, wait for that day
when our love will rise to that song that brought our hearts together
Even though you’re mistreating me, I know the girl that you used to be
For me those days were meant to last forever
Time after time I’m wondering why am I to be all alone?
Day after day I pray that you’ll stay cause you’ve got a heart of stone, a hart of stone
I walk the streets like a broken man, oh I wish that you would understand
even though you’re still the one I wait for
I guess in love there’s no guarantee, sometimes it’s not what it seems to be
Eeven though you’re still the one I care for
Time after time I’m wondering why am I to be all alone?
D ay after day I pray that you’ll stay, cause you’ve got a heart of stone

HOMELAND (PEACE OF MIND) (“Worlds Away”, 1996)

On my way to the homeland
in a few more miles we’re through
It’s been a long, long ride and a good time there
but I’ll soon be back to you
Never thought I’d miss the rain
on those summer nights we cherised then
All those memories I love will never leave me
it’s not the same everywhere
But I know that the day will come
all the fighting will be done
Why does it take so long to understand
How we can find peace of mind?
I hope you’ll find love, I hope I’ll find you
We are breathing so many warnings
while they’re killing the seas
All the children know is violence now
Tell me how can we be freed, still feeding the hate
Trouble breading ignorance, of well
They can never take away your faith
I know that the day will come
all the fighting will be done
Why does it take so long to understand
It’s all in our hands, gotta decide, where you belong
Gotta believe in something
Time to move along and understand
Now you can find peace of mind, I hope you’ll find it
Give a little love and you’ll feel better
A little of your time, I’ll come back to you
Give a little hope and there’ll be hope for you
coming down like rain
I know that the day will come
all the fighting will be done
Why does it take so long to understand
It’s all in our hands, gotta decide, where you belong
Gotta believe in something
Time to move along and understand
Now we can find peace of mind, I hope you’ll find you

that you would always be right here
The summer is gone you see
here comes the winter, you’re not there
I should never let you go coz you’re a part of me
In your eyes, no one could ever see
that you’re lonely baby, please tell me why
In your eyes, you may pretend you’re free
but I know you so well, love will come back you’ll see
The things that you’ve done for me
I just look back but you were gone
Remember those things that we share
Only your memory lingers on
I don’t want to fall apart, please come back to me
In your eyes, no one could ever see
That you’re lonely baby, please tell me why
In your eyes, you may pretend you’re free
But I know you so well, love will come back you’ll see

INSIDE (“Another Destination”, 1995)

Saw you in the rain
or was that you dyin’ for a line, another line
Drownin’ in the street, broken past
With your love of god, yeah, yeah
Watch the Wheel, try to ease the pain
Evictin’ time a cryin’ shame, live the life of a stranger
Watch the fields, turn and fade away
tainting light of future days
it’s alright I’ve seen a stranger
O-oooh… Is it you or is it me? Inside those eyes…
Fall into the drain
Searchin’ for those years that passed you by, reasons why
Ever watched the endless sea or felt some fear
For your wasted time, yeah, yeah…
Sacred words never heard again by fools walking that fine line
Their curse is silent danger
As the fight comes to an end, the darkness begins to fade
Will innocence pass through danger?
O-oooh… Is it you or is it me? Inside those eyes I can see
O-oooh… Inside those eyes I can see, inside those eyes I can see
I stumble in the crowd, it’s a shame… yeah
Watch the Wheel, try to ease the pain
Evictin’ time a cryin’ shame, live the life of a stranger
Watch the fields, turn and fade away
tainting light of future days, it’s alright I’ve seen a stranger
O-oooh… Is it you or is it me? Inside those eyes I can see
O-oooh… Inside those eyes I can see, inside those eyes I can see

IT’S ONLY MONEY (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

Don’t believe in love, you don’t believe in hate
you put your money in the bank
It’s the only way to save you wanna, all right
You try to make a buck, but you haven’t made a penny
You need a little luck, but you know you won’t get any you want
It’s only money, it’s only money, it’s only money
You don’t believe in God, you don’t believe in glory
got a brother in the clinic, tell the same kind of story (kind of story)
If you had another life, you know what would be waiting
If you had another soul, you could sell it all to Satan you want
It’s only money, it’s only money, it’s only money… Oh yeah, oh yeah…
You don’t believe in war, you don’t believe in Jesus
got a sister in New York, she knows how she pleases
Walking the streets, on south side of the city
try to make ends meet, isn’t that a pity for money?
It’s only money, it’s only money, it’s only money… all right

KILLER WITHOUT A CAUSE (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

He made a big impression when he walked across the room
and I must make my confession
I might if spoke too soon he’s a killer without a cause
Time has come to settle scores
on the streets he lives again
Down the alley around the bend
on the beat beneath the lights
An angel comes to claim the night
from the streets this rebel shall rise
And his soul shall soar to the skies
The same old confrontation
at the bar in the saloon
but it’s just another tricky situation
the underworld operation lies in ruiry
He’s a killer without a cause
Time has come to settle scores
On the streets he lives again
down the alley around the bend
on the beat beneath the lights
An angel comes to claim the night
from the streets this rebel shall rise
and his soul shall soar to the skies

LAW OF LIFE (“Total Control”, 1987)

When the tears are enough and so I have been away
What is left to come back to makes it worse to stay
Hiding things from the corners of the things from the past
But the paintings remind me that we were two of a cast
Never count on a tiger, never play with the fire
Don’t remind me of home
’cause I’ve been out in the west, writing letters of love
That’s the law of life
I’ve been filled up with hunger for a mail to be mine
I’ve been building a house too like I’ve been building desire
Never count on a tiger, never play with the fire
Don’t remind me of home
’cause I’ve been out in the west writing letters of love
That’s the law of life
Sometimes words are despiteful and sometimes they are blind
But my longing is frightful, I’m screaming time after time
Never count on a tiger, never play with the fire
Don’t remind me of home
’cause I’ve been out in the west, writing letters of love
That’s the law of life

LET IT SHINE (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

Everything is good now, everything is fine
searching for a feeling, way down on the line
Everything is working, everytime I need you
going with the flow, girl, to crash and I’ll burn
I want mine, so let it shine
even if it costs me all of my time
If you can hear crystal clear
even if you leave me, just let it shine
Just let it shine
Everything’s groovy, now playing for a purpose
I’m playing my guitar, that’s all I wanna do
I want mine, so let it shine
even if it costs me all of my time
If you can hear crystal clear
even if you leave me, just let it shine
Just let it shine, just let it shine
I will survive, I’ve come this far
Cant’s say I’ve found an easy way (find the easy way)
I refuse to surrender, because reason I can’t deny
Wasted visions, use your illusion
catch the emotion, way down the line
Everything is moving, I’m playing my guitar
like a shooting star, lighting up the sky
I want mine, so let it shine
even if it costs me all of my time
If you can hear crystal clear
even if you leave me, just let it shine
just let it shine, oh yeah, just let it shine

LET ME LOVE YOU (“Total Control”, 1987, “Let Me Love You”, 1987; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

Looking at my picture on your wall
just like a thousand times before
If dreaming of me ain’t good enough
why don’t you come to me for more?
So close your eyes and your fantasy comes true
I’m gonna give you my love so stop feeling blue
Let me love you, let me love you
Girl you must be crazy if you still believe
in all the stories, in their lies
Inside your heart you know what you want
Why don’t you give it? One more try
So close your eyes and your fantasy come true
I’m gonna give you my love, stop feeling blue
Let me love you, let me love you
I don’t need no excuses, I’m never gonna refuse your love
So close your eyes and let your fantasy come true
I’m gonna give you my love so stop feeling blue
Let me love you, let me love you

LOOSIN’ MY MIND (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

When you’re looking from the outside
you always think life is just a game
When ya know that I’ve been down and lonely
there is no one else to blame
Where you belong, is it wrong or right?
Where is the life that you long to see
Chasing shadows they will understand
you better listen to my words
I’m tearin’ out caged emotions, throw them to the wind
Climbin’ the walls, disconnected from my mind
all these illusions they are hard too see
Feel like I’m loosing my mind, nobody knows it
but I feel like I’m loosin’ my mind
It keeps me walkin’ through time
What is the crime? To feel the pain inside
Loosing my mind
Turn myself around yeah I’ve got to know who I am
Will I live forever? What you know is what you get
Feel like I’m loosing my mind, nobody knows it
but I feel like I’m loosin’ my mind
It keeps me walkin’ through time
Can I find some peace of mind?
Or leave it behind all of this confusion
I’ve got to know what it is to get it
What you know is what you get there is no reason to forget
Your life is what you make
it’s callin’ from a place where we meet
Shadows watching over you
Time will tell there’s something new for me
Nothing will remain, nothing can remain
I will turn my head around
See a face that seems so bright it’s true
Nothing will remain, nothing can remain
Shadows watching over you
Time will tell there’s something new for me
Nothing will remain, nothing can remain
I will turn my head around
See a face that seems so bright it’s true

LOVE IS MEANT (TO LAST FOREVER) (“Total Control”, 1987; “Love Is Meant (to last forever)”, 1987)

You are my best friend and I will try to understand
the moment, believe me, I’ll be there, so just take my hand
‘cause I know that we were meant for each other
Don’t you run for me ‘cause I make you see
Love is meant to last forever oh yeah, love is meant to last forever
I never thought you could leave me and I belive you belt to stay
But now that it’s over, I realize I’m the one to be blamed
Hey listen, I know that things will get better
So hold on to me ‘cause I make you see
Love is meant to last forever, is it too hard to understand?
Love is meant to last forever. Why can’t you hold on to love?

MAKE A MOVE (“Worlds Away, 1996; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

Gotta learn how to fight around here
if you really wanna stay alive
There’s a method of survival in the city
’til you’ve gone, ’til you’ve done your own time
Walking and talking in circles don’t matter
Money never saved the rich or poor
Don’t matter it’s just if you mean it
They’ll scrape at the bones ’til you’re cold
Climbing sideways
Through the cracks down the aisles
Praying on the new life and the people on display
I make a move on you, I make a move on you
Sun is on the rise time to awaken
Living in the present – past
Avenues and signs all directing
Another round on the beaten path
Gotta learn how to fight around here
if you really wanna stay alive
Don’t turn your back you gotta watch it
Gotta learn how to keep your mind
Moving slower the sun has gone away
Never going out of style people on display
I make a move on you, I make a move on you
I make a move on you, I make a move on you

MANIC DISTORTION (“Worlds Away”, 1996)

Get a little closer. let me see your eyes
Didn’t stop to notice all warning signs, can’t get any higher
Don’t you wanna know while you were away
They changed your name and code
Hear the sound, that’s changing all around
You’ve gone too far
City lights are spiked, the wolves are out tonight
Manic distortion, sink or swim
Out of proportion, gonna crash or mend
Speak a little louder, can’t hear your new voice
It’s harder to focus past the inner noise
Something on computor, another soul to load
New world out of order, the news is so exposed
Are you leaving, will you wake up?
It’s gone too far, way too far
Will you stay a million miles away?
Manic distortion, sink or swim
Wheel out of motion, gonna crash or mend
Are you leaving, will you wake up?
It’s binding now
Everything has changed, it’s all deranged
Manic distortion, sink or swim
Out of proportion, gonna crash or mend
May Day

NAILED TO THE CROSS (“Optimus”, 2005)

Possessed by demons trapped in a world of shame
buy the goods they sell you
Watch the heavens as they call your name, is this an endless game?
The innocence has left you now it’s gone, but you’re feeding the flame
I will wander through your open mind, take your breath away
It’s my reflection that you seek to find, say goodbye to yesterday
Nailed to the cross, nailed to the cross
Heaven bends to pick you up again, you can only fight to win
Stackin’ bones in the battlefield, fallin’ hard and sinkin’ low
I will wander through your open mind, take your breath away
It’s my reflection that you seek to find, say goodbye to yesterday
Nailed to the cross, nailed to the cross
Just a path to sorrow, where’s the darkness? The tide is rollin’ in
Nailed to the cross, nailed to the cross
nailed to the cross, oh yeah…

NATURAL THING (“Optimus”, 2005)

Said she came from Memphis
You can look but please don’t touch
Didn’t like rock and rollers
Seemed a bit much too much
Cause it’s the natural thing you feel at the start
Natural blood starts to flow
Yeah, the natural thing, you get at the start
Then she’ll never let you go
Hey girl, now does it feel alright, think I’m gettin’ through
Don’t you think the band’s real tight? Wait til we start to move
May sound funny but you gave it to me, I didn’t even like it
May sound funny but you gave it to me
And now I got to live without it
I been down to Atlanta, got to move my feet
Gettin’ down for the last encore with every star she meets
Cause it’s the natural thing you feel at the start
Natural blood starts to flow
Yeah, the natural thing, you get at the start
Then she’ll never let you go
Hey girl, now does it feel alright, think I’m gettin’ through
Don’t you think the band’s real tight? Wait til we start to move
May sound funny but you gave it to me, I didn’t even like it
May sound funny but you gave it to me
And now I got to live without it
May sound funny but you gave it to me, I didn’t even like it
May sound funny but you gave it to me
And now I got to live without it
Why’d you do it, why’d you do it

NIGHT BUZZ (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

When it’s calling I will be there
Need it more than you will realize
It can take you to the borderline
Always staring through my crystal eyes
I only want to live for this night
I can see you on the other side
You look sad
When it’s calling me at the end of the night
Can you feel the night buzz
I feel it, calling from the end of the night
Can you feel the night buzz
I feel it, calling from the edge of the sky
From the first time when it hits you
You feel more than you will realize
It can move you, let go down there
Look again before you criticize
I only want to live for this night
I can see you on the other side
You look sad
When it’s calling me at the end of the night
Can you feel the night buzz
I feel it, calling from the end of the night
Can you feel the night buzz
I feel it, calling from the edge of the sky

NOBODY ANSWERS (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

You’ve dug yourself into a hole
seems like you’re out of control
Disguising the truth with lies
worn out with sands of time
Push a little harder and drive a little faster to get a line
You know that ain’t right, you’re going nowhere
Promises never came true
this symphonies way out of tune
I see you graspin’ for air, reach out but you’re not there
Nobody answers no one can tell
Nobody answers I thought I knew you well
Runnin’ from the past, ya know ya crossed the line
Drugs are nothin’ but a bet with your mind
Nobody answers, no one can tell
Nobody answers I thought I knew you well
Nobody answers the call of the bell
Nobody hears you alone cryin’ for help
Where are you goin’? No one can tell
Nobody hears you alone cryin’ for help
Nobody answers the call of the bell
Nobody hears you alone cryin’ for help, oh yeah
No one can tell, yeah, yeah
Nobody answers, no one can tell, oh, you know…

ONE MORE TIME (“Optimus”, 2005)

When your eyes are lonely as can be
your smiling face is a disguise
When you’re feelin’ low and run down, when it’s time to go
It’s no surprise that your eyes are lonely, let it be
In this world it all comes down to you
when you realize it’s no tomorrow
When you’re giving up your dreams and
and the lights are fadin’ very fast
Wait till tomorrows, live today
So many hours left, no one told me not to forget our world
One more time we steal and borrow
one more time there’s no regrets
Now the time has come to say goodbye
when it’s time to go forget your sorrow
When your feelin’ low and run down
when you realize it’s down to you
One more time we steal and borrow
one more time there’s no regrets
One more time, one more time
It’s no tomorrow, I wanna see you now, yeah…

OPIUM TRAIL (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

I took a line that leads you to the opium trail
Oriental eyes reveal the lies, deceit, betrayal
On this journey behold one who travels far
You called him fool but now you are
The wizard wanders through the world made from dreams
The splashing whirlpool drowns the frightened streams
Exotic dancers, flashing lancers, this mysterious space
The fanfare advances, the warlord falls from grace
It clears your pain, but It’s got you claimed again, my love
You feel the need but it lets you bleed
You must concede, my love
No one to blame, no shame, you crave again and again, my love
No used to plead from you, it feeds on your greed, my love
I took a line that comes from the golden states of Shan
The smugglers trail that leads to the opium den
The Chinese connection refines to heroin
Depart the heart you crave again, it clears your pain
You soul is claimed again, my love
You feel the need, it lets you bleed
You must concede, my love
No one to blame, no shame
You crave again and again, my love
No use to plead from you it feeds, my love

OVER AND DONE (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

You have to understand the reason why I have to leave you behind
I’m trapped in this world of confusion, but I ain’t gonna loose my mind
I ain’t gonna feel no sorrow, for the things I’ve said and done
So give me one good reason, why I should be hanging around
You push me to the limit, baby, stop wasting my time
Now it’s over and done, now it’s over and done, yeah, yeah…
Now you keep on knocking on my door, why won’t you leave me alone
Why you still begging for more, don’t you know you’re in a danger zone
Why can’t you find a solution, ’cause we ain’t gonna be no more
Now you’re running into trouble, like so many times before
You push me to the limit, baby, look what you’ve become
Now it’s over and done
When the sun goes down, and the night will show you the meaning
’cause the time has come, now it’s over and done
Over and done, yeah, yeah, hey, all right…

RED LIGHT GREEN HIGH (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

Sun will be shining, I will be leaving
Life will begin from above
I started dreaming deepest of feelings
Sky’s getting cloudy and cold
I’m going down, I can hear the sound
I’m back on the ground, red light green high, going down
I have to find it, the place I remember
Someone is calling for me
Soon I will be gone, I hope I won’t be long
I’m high as I should be, red light, green high, going down
Red light, green high, going down…
Red light, green high, going down

RESURRECTION TIME (“Another Destination”, 1995; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

I’ve walked down the road, led me to a dead end
I talked to the eyes to the many who weren’t there
I’ve heard so many lies I almost saw their truth
A spirit flew alone, passed on through
We were talking about the future, fighting to begin
Another destination
How long, as long as I could, so long, I’m leaving for good
Come on stop inside, it’s resurrection time
It’s time to unwind, it’s resurrection time
I’ve tried to find an answer, for the ones out in the street
I’ve tried to find a reason, for the killing that I’ve seen
Talking about the future, to start it had to end
Final separation
How long, as long as I could, so long, I’m leaving for good
Come on stop inside, it’s resurrection time
It’s time to unwind, it’s resurrection time
So hard to find
Come on step inside, it’s time to unwind
It’s resurrection time
Someone out calling, trying to find a way
Something to believe in, know what I’m gonna do
Resurrection time, it’s time to unwind, it’s resurrection time

SCREAM OF ANGER (“Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

I won’t live to see tomorrow, there won’t be another breath
None of them will ever sorrow those who sentenced me to death
I’ve been waiting here for ages for the hangman to appear
Soon the priest will read some pages from the Bible for my fear
I see a place an evil place comin’ my way
What can I do? Where can I run? I’m gonna die anyway
Things are getting clearer, this is the price I have to pay
I feel like screaming out my anger, there is so much left here to do
When it happened I was younger and my destiny was you
I see a place an evil place comin’ my way
What can I do? where can I run? I’m gonna die anyway
Things are getting clearer, this is the price I have to pay
What can I do about leaving you? We were only halfway through
What can I say? There was no other way, they wouldn’t let me stay

SOMEONE ELSE HERE (“Total Control”, 1987)

There’s someone else here watching this shadow reaching for you
Riding in my heart, into my soul
There’s someone else breathing touching my skin like a warming breeze
What is happening? if I’m losing control or everything that’s real to me
Losing you all the time watching you fade away
Trying to hold a line making you change your mind or will I lose my mind?
Looking at a stranger who is watching me (who is watching me)
Making wishes in the night, feel that stranger by my side
There’s someone else breathing here, touching my skin like a warming breeze
What is happening? if I’m losing control or everything that’s real to me
Losing you all the time, watching you fade away
Trying to hold the line, making you change your mind

SONGS OF YESTERDAY (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

When I look into your eyes I know it’s a betrayal
staring down from far away
hangin’ around is like being locked in a jail
You know it ain’t easy, right babe?
Ooh it’s not the right way, you’re living out a lie
I can see it in your eyes
Ooh you can’t go back, no more, my friend
You’re wearing a disguise, hidin’ from your fears
living out a lie without a care
Some people get down when there on the road
some people get down when they’re all alone
When you’re around you always think you know
the answers to all the questions in the sky
Ooh it’s not the right way, you’re living out a lie
I can see it in your eyes
Ooh you can’t go back, no more, my friend
You’re waring a disguise, hidin’ from your fears
living out a lie without a care
When I look into your eyes I know it’s a betrayal
Staring down from far away
Hangin’ around is like being locked in a jail
You know it ain’t easy, right babe?
Ooh it’s not the right way You’re living out a lie
I can see it in your eyes
Ooh you can’t go back, no more, my friend
You’re waring a disguise, hidin’ from your fears
living out a lie without a care
All of your dreams may pass
song’s of yesterday that’s fading away
Hold on to what you have
before it slips away, spirit slips away, oh yeah

SPIRIT WORLD (“Another Destination”, 1995; “Another Destination” – single – 1995)

Love crimes in the spirit world are vague
Bad child is the force with you tonight
Faces change where the ceremony lies
Describe time and the feelings slept awake
Slept awake?… flyin’ time
Took a wild ride, on a white horse
Gonna loose your mind, it’s still runnin’
White horse, runnin’ wild
Never lose the fight around the circle
Join the light… electric skies
Past time in a desert storm of life
I see wicked minded women painted to be proud
Sign in chants awaiting
Mass to the tune of ancient rythmes
A breeze through the tribe smell the burning
What salvation’s found?
The fifth card resersed, which is worse?
Took a wild ride, on a white horse
Gonna loose your mind, it’s still runnin’
White Horse, runnin’ wild
Never lose the fight, around the circle
Join the light… electric skies
So rise, our life’s their ritual
When there’s dancin’ on the ground
Dance child
Took a wild ride, on a white horse
Gonna loose your mind, it’s still runnin’
White Horse, runnin’ wild
Gonna loose your mind runnin’
I’ll meet you in the lost and found
Lost and found, lost and found

What are you waiting for? Are you waiting for me?
Why are you leaving my poor heart?
Where will you go?
Leaving my heart here stone cold you better run

What are you waiting for? Are you waiting for me?
Why are you leaving my poor heart?
Where will you go?
Leaving my heart here stone cold you better run

How can we live with these lies?

into a world that’s been reborn yeah
Where will you go?
Leaving my heart here stone cold, you better run
I’m still in the game yeah yeah

STILL THE NIGHT (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “In Your Eyes”, 1992)

You didn´t have to run from me because
I am the one you know it
You should have took the time you see
You know I am the one don’t blow it
You know you’ve got the combination
You’ve got the moves that could change the nation
All you need is some understanding
You know it’s right
Don’t you know it’s still the night
What are you running for, still the night
All the love that I’ve shown you
I said I’d give it all to you
But you gave a look right through me
I’ve never told you what to do
I trust in your love, can’t you see?
All alone in your city, in this world without pity
Don’t you know it’s still the night
What are you running for, still the night
All the love that I’ve shown you

Where there’s a cop on every corner
Yeah, he’s got an axe to grind
Waiting for some guitar playing, grass smoking, long hair
He’s got promotion on his mind
Strange days, Lord, Lord… Strange ways
Oh… Strange ways

No it’s not for sale watchin’ you two

In the sunshine of your love, I’m with you my love
The light’s shining through on you. Yes, I’m with you my love
It’s the morning and just we two

I’ve been waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so long
I’ve been waiting so long, to be where I’m going

TAKIN’ THE BLAME (“Optimus”, 2005)

I realize it’s a new day, you’ll find another slave
Taking a ride on a new wave, now I’m free from what you are
But now I have found another way to turn you into the fool
It’s gonna end, my patience’s gone
It’s all the same now, always takin’ the blame now
It’s all the shame now, always takin’ the blame now
Taking a ride on a new vibe, it will be great you will see
Now I am done with you, you loose now
The uglieness is gone and I’m free, yeah I’m free, you’re gonna fry
So it’s all the same now, always takin’ the blame now
It’s all the shame now, always takin’ the blame now
When the feelin’ is gone you know that you’ve been wrong, so long
Now the time is arrived, I know that I must move on
So it’s all the same now, always takin’ the blame now
It’s all the shame now, always takin’ the blame now
It’s all the same now, always takin’ the blame now
It’s all the shame now, always takin’ the blame now, oh yeah…

TICO’S LIFE (“Slipped Into Tomorrow, 1999)

Rise up from the ocean turn back from a time
findin’ a connection seem to find the rhyme
Slipped into tomorrow, search for yesterday
All of the answers in the world that set me free
Where will I go? How will I know? Where will I go?
I would love to find direction without a word, oh yeah
walkin’ through emotions, readin’ all the signs
changin’ my direction, seasons left behind
Where will I go? How will I know? Where will I go?
I would love to find direction without a word, oh yeah
Is the news getting old? was it a lie?
All that we had, old memories pass
Now you know that we cared
Where will I go? How will I know? Where will I go?
I would love to find direction without a word, yeah
Is the news getting old?
I found love on your road, I can’t leave it all behind
Tico’s life, he’s going back, where is he now?
Fallin’ from grace, eagles fly into the ocean
I will approach this final devotion
I am the law, I am the lost
I am the law, I am the lost

TIME TO RUN (“Optimus”, 2005)

Well I’m standing at the frontline, my life seems like a war
I’m so tired of fightin’ back, don’t wanna see your face no more
Well, I think you know it’s over, it’s better left undone
Now I will soon be going ‘cause the things you’ve said and done
I know, baby it’s time to run, you’d better open your eyes
I know, baby your time has come, it’s time to run
The time has come baby, it’s time to run
When I’m talkin’ to you now, I might be talkin’ to the wall
Now I’ve got news for you, you just ain’t no fun at all
I don’t hear your words for me, I don’t hear your words at all
You’d better watch your step ‘cause you’re headed for a fall
I know, baby it’s time to run, you’d better open your eyes
I know, baby your time has come, it’s time to run
I wanna see you run
I just wanna walk away, I just turn my back and say
Baby your time has come
I’m so tired, I’m so confused, tossed around I’ve payied my dues
baby it’s time to run
The time has come baby, it’s time to run
I know, baby it’s time to run, you’d better open your eyes
I know, baby your time has come, it’s time to run
I know, baby it’s time to run, you’d better open your eyes
I know, baby your time has come, it’s time to run

TIME WILL FIND THE ANSWER (“Face the Truth”, 1992)

Into the shadows of the night
they fought the war that would never die
Now the sun never shines
Can’t find the key that’s lost in time
And the wind calls your name for you only
but she would never return
and I long to hear your voice
as I watch the endless fire burn
Now the kings and queens of long ago
Could never have forseen
Will they rise and fall, only time will tell
Twisted on battleground so green
Time will find the answer, time will find you
walking through the fields
Into the storm where the soldiers lie
Black skies are gathering around
where men fought and they lost
as they fall silent to the ground
Only time it will heal
Stop your crying, I’ll soon be on my way
and I can hear your voice
through the trees in the morning light
Now the autumn leaves are falling
as the winter closes in
through the morning mist
only walk the brave
they only fight to win
Now the autumn leaves are falling
as winter closes in
will they rise or fall? Only time will tell
They only fight to win

TOO MANY HEARTS (“Total Control”, 1987)

Run your hand through your hair, paint your face with despair
If you won’t give love to me you are free to run for me
All the years I’ve seen many ways to go
All the years nobody will ever know
See the fool inside me, breaking far too many hearts
Run your hand through my hair, fill my days with your care
If you can’t give love to me I will be more than free
All the years I’ve seen many ways to go
All the years nobody will ever know
See the fool inside me, breaking far too many hearts
far too many hearts, far too many broken hearts

TRAVEL IN THE DARK (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

Travel in the dark, can’t see a thing… Travel in the dark
Travel in the dark, can’t see a thing… Travel in the dark
What you gonna do when you can’t seem to understand
How you gonna feel when your woman with another man
Travel in the dark, can’t see a thing… Travel in the dark
Travel in the dark, can’t see a thing… Travel in the dark
What makes you think that you ever gonna understand
What’s going on in the mind of another man
Travel in the dark, can’t see a thing… Travel in the dark
What you gonna do when you can’t seem to understand
How you gonna feel when your woman with another man

VEDA (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

Smoke will fill these skies with tears
Fills my eyes all though the years
Will the light beam disappear or rise up to conquer fear
What can I do? Wait here for you
Take my hand my child of time
Knowin’ the truth, answers untold
Riddles uncovered in ancient scrolls
Drownin’ in a sea of pain
Can we live with this old shame
No one takes away the blame
Mother earth be free again
Veda won’t wait there at the gate
We’ve got to change before it’s too late
Takin’ our time burnin’ our lives
Lookin’ through a hole in the sky
All the seas that have burned
Nothin’ can change in a day
All the seas that have burned
Damage is done all the way
Life on earth is such a waste
Will we move to Mars one day?
Waking up it’s time to leave Lining up will we succeed
Thinking of you what will you do
Destiny see us travellin’ through
Freedom is gold, precious the soul
Foolish are those who are growin’ cold
All the seas that have burned
Nothin’ can change in a day
All the seas that have burned
Damage is done all the way
All the seas that have burned
Somebody take me away
All the seas that have burned
Will we all find our way
Have we used all that we have
Will we use the rhymes that we have
Nobody has ever fallen while down on the ground
Nobody is callin’ to turn this around

WAITING ON YOU (“Slipped Into Tomorrow”, 1999)

Runnin’ around in circles can’t drink ya off my mind
Hangin’ around the day sure does pass the time
Remember all those places we would just hide away
From all the empty faces in who we once believed
The way I feel about you, life is a drag without you
Waiting on you, waiting on you, waiting on you
I’m getting out of here, the sun is going down
Obsessions taken over I feel it everywhere
Seems like I’m moving closer so you can set me free
The time arrives too slowly, your shadows watching me
The way I feel about you, life’s a drag without you
Waiting on you, waiting on you, waiting on you
Waiting on you, waiting on you, waiting on you
Ohh, waiting on you, ohh, you and me

WASTED LABOR (“Worlds Away”, 1996)

All that I know, all that I fear, all of my wasted labor
Reaching too far, tearing out my heart
all to save your love from the hate
Elegant lure, sneakingly vague
Feeds upon the pained and the sore
Driving me down, watching the wheels blow out
stealing your lives, children you walk the live
Taking you out, inviting the breaking down
Gotta get back in the race your faith
For all that I live, through all the extremes
Prisons of our own making
Fighting the weight of malignant moods
That hold on to the faith of the drowned
Into the lens, taping your life
The nothing your submission allows
Takin’ you under, under… Takin’ you under
Driving me down, cruising the underground
Backwards again, this time it’s maiking no sense
Taking me out, down through the dead end round
Back in the race, all isn’t out of place
For all, for all I can reach, all that can hear
All isn’t wasted labor
Fields of your life, fields of your life
Don’t let it get you down, fields of your life
How many times around have taken you so far down
Don’t let it get you down, fields of your life
How many times around have taken you so far down
Let it go, let go, let it all go, go

WE WILL BE STRONG (“Face the Truth”, 1992; “We Will Be Strong”, 1992)

You know that we belong, we belong together
together we’ll be strong. Oh is it true, it’s down to me and you
I’ve been thinking about the days we had
we were younger then, didn’t need nobody else
I’ve been waiting for this day to come
it was magic then, it could be again
I was looking at the sky before I knew your name
Needed something to believe in, something to ease the pain
When I’m down feeling lost and blue
When I’m down I hear you whisper
When I’m gone, all I want to do is to talk to you
It’s down to me and you
I’ve been thinking about the choices we made
without a word we went separate ways
Now here we stand after all this time
it’s plain to see, it was meant to be
When I’m down feeling lost and blue
When I’m down I hear you whisper
When I’m gone, all I want to do is to talk to you
It’s down to me and you
You know that we belong…

WE’LL DO WHAT IT TAKES TOGETHER (“Total Control”, 1987)

Our reality we must face
We’ve got to stop to this right to race
’cause youthly war, is there anyone
United people where it is done
We learn we’ll do what it takes together
Dreaming of a better world, fighting for the children
Screaming, all we want be heard, all we want be heard it all
All that we’ve done so far is dark
We got to stop before much too late
’cause we got obligations
To come in iterations
Time has done the rest to make changes
Dreaming of a better world, fighting for the children
Screaming, all we want be heard, all we want be heard it all
’cause youthly war, is there anyone
United people where it is done
We learn we’ll do what it takes together
Dreaming of a better world, fighting for the children
Screaming, all we want be heard, all we want be heard it all

WHEN DARKNESS FALLS (“Play Yard Blues”, 2010)

Now I know I’m falling apart, I cannot sleep at night
I was blind, a fool from the start, but I think it’s gonna be all right
I climb a mountain, I travel and fall, If I need some help I give you a call
Across the Ocean and over the fields, pull me over, put a spell on me
When darkness falls I feel all right, when the sun goes down we’ll dance all night
When darkness falls I feel alive, there is a reason to satisfy your dark soul
I’m going slow
Everytime I try to run away, the storm is coming closer
I will leave on a rainy day, and I know it’s gonna be all right
Across all Nations I travel alone, my journey is here, I’m coming home
Goodbye, Rome, it’s time to leave, pull me over, put a spell on me
When darkness falls I feel all right, when the sun goes down we’ll dance all night
When darkness falls I feel alive, there is a reason to satisfy your dark soul
I’m going slow
Across all Nations I travel alone, my journey is here, I’m coming home
When darkness falls I feel all right, when the sun goes down we’ll dance all night
When darkness falls I feel alive, there is a reason to satisfy your dark soul
(When darkeness falls) dark soul…

WHERE THE GRASS IS GREEN (“Worlds Away”, 1996; “Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

I called to Mary, didn’t answer, no one home that day
Called to Jesus, don’t you know it, sleeping I guess, okay
Where did all the people go, that I used to know
I’ve been driven by a few wild horses trampled under their feet
Just tell me why the children cry and how we can find relief
Half my life’s mistakes I’ve made, this is for much more than I need
I wanna lead me onward for, where the grass is green
Called the heavens, still no answer, must be on holiday
One to Joseph, twice to Father, maybe got through anyway
Where did all the people go,that I used to know
I’ve been driven by a few wild horses trampled under their feet
Just tell me why the children cry and how we can find relief
Half my life’s mistakes I’ve made, this is for much more than I need
I wanna lead me onward for where the grass is green
I’ve been driven by a few wild horses trampled under their feet
Just tell me why the children cry and how we can find relief
Goodbye no offense, this is far much more than I need
I wanna lead me onward for where the grass is green
For where the grass is green

WHO’S SIDE ARE YOU ON? (“Another Destination”, 1995)

Better off last Sunday morning on the other side
Which is right, I’ve left the meaning, hidden from the cries
I wake up cold in the middle of the night
wonderin’ why you’re not there
You were gone last Sunday morning, well, I thought you cared
bringin’ each other down, over and over again
Maybe this time you’ll find yourself, tell me…
On who’s side are you now? On who’s side are you now?
Better stop these voices creepin’ round outside your back
Bed of roses for the nails you driven off the track
Do you wake up cold in the middle of the night
wonderin’ why I’m not there
Better off alive and thinkin’ of one day that I cared
bringin’ each other down, over and over again
Maybe this time you’ll find yourself. Oh… Tell me…
On who’s side are you now? On who’s side are you now?
Better off last Monday morning on the other side
Which is right, I’ve left the meaning hidden from the cries
But I wake up cold in the middle of the night
wonderin’ why you’re not there
You were gone last Monday morning, well, I thought you cared
bringin’ each other down over and over again
On who’s side are you now?
Fools lie all around, you stole what you found
On who’s side are you now?

WILD ONE (“Total Control”, 1987; “Let Me Love You”, 1987)

Wild One won’t you please come home
you’ve been away too long, will you?
We need you home, we need you near
come back wild one, will you?
How can we live without your love?
You know that could kill you. How can we carry on?
When you are gone my wild one, so you go your way
Wild one I’ll try and follow and if you change your mind
I will be waiting here for you tomorrow for I would beg for you
I would steal and I would borrow
I’d do anything, anything at all to end this sorrow
Wild One the gypsies warned of the danger
you can laugh and joke with friends
but don’t you talk to strangers
Although their offers may be sweet I’d bet and I would wager
away you’ll stray and never come back to those
who love and made you wild one

WISHING WELL (“Face It Live ’97”, 1997)

Take off your hat, kick off your shoes
you know you ain’t goin’ anywhere
Look around all your time your singin’ your blues
you know you ain’t goin’ anywhere
You’ve always been a good friend of mine
but you always say farewell
and the only time that you’re satisfied is it with your feet in the wishing well
Throw down your gun, you might shoot yourself
or is it that what you’re tryin’ to do?
Put up a fight you believe to be right, and some day the sun will shine through
You’ve always got somethin’ to hide, something you just can’t tell
and the only time that you’re satisfied is with your feet in the wishing well
But I know what you’re wishing for
It’s love in a peaceful world, it’s love in a peaceful world
and some love in a peaceful world, it’s love in a peaceful world
You’re always been a good friend of mine
but you always say farewell
and the only time that you’re satisfied is with your feet in the wishing well

WORLDS AWAY (“Worlds Away”, 1996)

Everyone is listening to half of what is said
Tried to share the meaning, no one wanted to be led
Gotta find all the life on your own
Gotta find all the life on your own
Going along ordinary day
Till you find our boat is sinking
Is it too much, a little too late
Hard to breath when your world is closing in
Reading between the lines like there is no tomorrow
Climbing the walls again and now the days go by
They’re closing in, some day it will be over
There’s not enough for all that’s left to save
Our love – our life – we are materialized
Everyone knows just what they’ve been told
Many have lost all faith everything
Matter is lost, it’s not who you are
Let it all go, maybe you’ll see beyond
There’s nothing left tomorrow
climbing the walls again
But now we’re waiting goodbye, for all our life
They’re bound and still will follow, connected still
There are not enough for all that’s left to save
Our love – our life – we are materialized
Pulling the reigns they’ve got you on display
Holdin’ you back you’re waiting for the raid
Fallen down stairs and now I’m back again
To follow the road is not the easy way
Oh Lord, won’t you come back to me
Oh Lord, to see you again, she is sublime
