Track Name: Geronimo
Look down the road
can you see me comin at you
See my headlights
hear my motor roar
Can you see the sunlight
flashing off my chrome
Hear the clash of my gears
hear me crashin thru your frontdoor
I’m comin home to you
there’s nothin bout that you can do
I love the sound the door makes
when it shouts surprise
Need a beer to wash dust from my throat splinters from my hair
When I left you thought you’d
never see me again
Now I’m back you don’t
wanna know where I been
I’m comin home to you
there’s nothin bout that you can do
Seems every road I travel
leads to one place
Every glass I look in to
I see your face
When I see the headlights comin at me
I see your eyes flashing welcome back
I’m comin home to you
there’s nothin bout that you can do
Track Name: Hi
SPACE TRUCKIN’ OFF TO WAR
SEESAW MAJOURIE DOR
LIES LIES IN PARADISE
TREES TREES CAN’T SEE NO MORE
HIGH FLY KISS THE SKY,
BEND DOWN KISS YOUR ASS GOODBYE
IGNORANCE DON’T MAKE THE GRADE
LYIN’ IN THE BED YOU MADE
THERE’S A PRICE THAT YOU IGNORE
HOLD OUT YOUR HANDS FOR MORE
SEE THE FIRE, SMELL THE SMOKE,
ENDURE THE CONTEMPT YOU INVOKE
HI
SOFT TOUCH WON’T COST TOO MUCH,
BURNED OUT BE GREED AND SUCH
SOUL SUCKIN PARASITE
TOO AFRAID TO STAND AND FIGHT
GROW A CONSCIENCE JUST GROW UP
PLANT THE TRUTH JUST FUCK OFF
HI
TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR
YOU HAVEN’T BEEN SO BRIGHT SO FAR
Track Name: May We Have Peace
When we rise
May we have Peace
When we lay down
May we have Peace
When we build a home
May we have Peace
When we roam like Gypsies
May we have Peace
When we gather kinfolk
When we gather friends
When we gather neighbours
When we gather nations
May we have Peace
When we talk of trade
May we have Peace
When we speak of freedom
May we have Peace
When we we sing our songs
May we have Peace
When we paint our visions
May we have Peace
As we gather grain
As we gather fishes
As we gather sweet fruits
As we gather precious things
May we have Peace *
When we have Peace . . . .. .
We have freedom
Track Name: Wont Be A Party
The sun won’t shine
the children won’t play
people won’t do what people say
a promise won’t mean
what it used to mean
and being free won’t be free...
But that don’t mean that we should
sit back watch it all unfold
don’t be a party to war...
We all breath the same air
our children laugh all our children cry
despite how we dress
or the language we speak
we’ll all bleed when the bullets fly...
But that don’t mean that we should
sit back watch it all unfold
don’t be a party to war...
one voice won’t make it go away
we sing together when we’re afraid
what people want a few people get
we must be careful they’re not done yet...
But that don’t mean that we should
sit back watch it all unfold
don’t be a party to war...
We all breath the same air
our children laugh all our children
cry despite how we dress
or the language we speak
we’ll all bleed when the bullets fly...
But that don’t mean that we should
sit back watch it all unfold
don’t be a party to war...
Track Name: Dollar To Burn
WELL IT HIT ME HARD
LIKE A BULLET FROM A GUN
I FELT LIKE A DRINK SO I HAD ME ONE
I FELT LIKE ANOTHER
AND BEFORE I WAS DONE
I COULD NOT REMEMBER
WHY I WAS ON THE RUN
THEN THE FLOOR JUMPED UP
AN HIT ME IN THE HEAD
AND I REMEMBERED
WHAT MY BABY SAID...
AIN’T NO NEED FOR YOU TO BE HANGIN’ ROUND HERE
PACK UP YOUR GUITARS FOOL
GET ON THAT 2 WHEELED DEATH MACHINE
AIN’T YOU GOT NO SELF RESPECT...
WELL THERE I WAS
WITH MY ASS ALL BROKE
WONDERING IF I’D EVER
FIND SOME FRIENDLY FOLK
WHEN A MAN WALKS UP
AN SAYS I’LL PAY YOU WELL
TO PLAY YOUR GUITAR
DOWN IN MY HOTEL
WELL I GOT NO PAY
NOT EVEN A BED
THEN HE TOLD ME
THE SAME THING MY BABY SAID...
WELL AS YOU KNOW
WHEN SUCH A STORY IS HEARD
SOMEONE COMES UP WITH A MORAL
OR A LESSON TO BE LEARNED
AN WHERE THERE’S A NEED
THERE’S A $ TO EARN THERE’S MONEY TO BURN
IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME
MAYBE TILL I’M DEAD
‘TILL I FORGET WHAT MY BABY SAID...
AIN’T NO NEED FOR ME TO BE
HANGIN’ ROUND HERE
PACK UP MY GUITARS
GET ON MY
2 WHEELED DEATH MACHINE
SELF RESPECT
HELL I GOT A TRUCKLOAD
SONGS TO PLAY.
PLACES TO BE STRINGS TO BREAK
NOW LET ME SEE
DOLLAR TO BURN
Track Name: Whats The Deal
WELL I DREAMED THERE WAS NO ASPHALT
AND I DREAMED THERE WERE NO CHORDS
AND IN A DREAM MY HANDS WERE BOUND
AND TIED BEHIND MY BACK
WELL IN A DREAM I HAD NO EYES
AND IN THAT DREAM I WAS NOT SANE
AND IN A DREAM MY MIND WAS BLANK
AND I COULD DREAM NO MORE...
WHAT’S THE DEAL
HOW DY’A FEEL
WALKIN’ THE LINE BETWEEN
FANTASY & REAL...
WELL I DREAMED THERE WAS A THOUGHT
BUT THE THOUGHT WAS JUST A DREAM
AND IN THAT DREAM I THOUGHT ALOUD
AND CAUSED MYSELF TO SCREAM
WELL I SCREAMED THERE IS NO ASPHALT
AND I SCREAMED THERE ARE NO CHORDS
AND IN A DREAM MY SCREAM WAS BOUND
AND TIED BEHIND MY BACK...
WHAT’S THE DEAL
HOW DY’A FEEL
WALKIN’ THE LINE BETWEEN
FANTASY & REAL...
WELL I DREAMED I WAS ASLEEP
AND I DREAMED THAT I AWOKE
AND WHEN I OPENED UP MY EYES
THAT DREAM HAD HUNG AROUND
WELL I SCREAMED AT IT TO LEAVE
OH HOW I SCREAMED AT IT TO GO
AND IN MY DREAM OR SCREAM I SEEMED
TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO...
WHAT’S THE DEAL
HOW DY’A FEEL
WALKIN’ THE LINE BETWEEN
FANTASY & REAL...
Track Name: Great Walls
On a wing - an’ on a prayer
Too many people - that just don’t care
Hide within - great walls of words
Do we face ourselves in fear-
Inhuman nature - will shed no tear...
Here she comes - Is she the one
Here she comes - Are you ready
Mother nature won’t take much more of this...
On the screen - smilin’ like a clown
Behind the scenes - a worried kind of frown
A FRIEND ONCE POINTED OUT
THAT NOT SO LONG AGO
POLTICIANS WOULD STROLL AROUND
WAVING OUT TO PEOPLE
NOW THEY SCUTTLE FROM SHADOW TO SHADOW,
STUDIO TO STUDIO
AND ONLY APPEAR ON OUR T.V. SCREENS
Here she comes - Is she the one
Here she comes - Are you ready
Mother nature won’t take much more of this...
Hold fast - we’re on a sinking ship...
Wake up - we’ve got to get a grip
Inhuman nature - has brought us to the brink
Everyone has got to stop and think-
The toughest walls - are the one‘s we’ve built within...
Here she comes - Is she the one
Here she comes - Are you ready
Mother nature won’t take much more of this...
Hold fast - we’re on a sinking ship...
