Heaven

You don't need no friends
Get back your faith again
You have the power to believe
Another dissident
Take back your evidence
It has no power to deceive

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive

I sit with them all night
Everything they say is right
But in the morning they were wrong
I'll be right by your side
Come hell or water high
Down any road you choose to roam

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive, yeah

Darling, I believe, Oh Lord
Sometimes it's hard to breathe, Lord
At the bottom of the sea, yeah yeah

I'll believe it when I see it for myself

I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset and I perceive
I don't need no one to tell me about heaven
I look at my daughter, and I believe.
I don't need no proof when it comes to God and truth
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I can see the sunset
I don't need no one
I don't need no one, oh
I don't need no one
I don't need no one
To tell me about heaven
I believe
I believe it, yeah


She 

Bring back that ďhair-downĒ, unguarded mystery
I liked it better when your tightrope walked on me
Board up my window, prepare for a hurricane
You have a way of breaking through my barricade
You give me all-new games to play

You set me soul free
Now every word that she speaks to me is pure gold
She set my soul free
She give me love, give me hope, give me strength to bear my faults for you

Was my intention to take control again?
Somehow you got me on the ropes of my own plan
To turn up the volume and make you dance for me
Release some pressure so that I can turn and see
Spirit manifests as ďSheĒ

You set me soul free (you set my soul free)
Now every word that she speaks to me is pure gold
She set my soul free (she set my soul free)
She give me love, give me hope, give me strength to bear my faults for you

Like a flower
I can see but I canít feel
Oh yeah
And nothing that you do could ever make me run, run away from you
I never knew, I never knew she could
She set my soul free
Now every word that she speaks to me is pure gold
She set my soul free (she set my soul free)
She give me love, give me hope, give me strength to bear my faults for you


The Sancity Of Dreams

Paint a moustache on the Mona Lisa
Ride a Harley through the heart of danger
Pick up a pen and fight a war for the right to dream
I was seventeen

Give up my house, sleep for nights on concrete
Meditate with all the bums on Vine Street
No more running, no more hiding in the house of the dead
I think Iíll grow some dreads

I believe in the sanctity of dreams
No more running from these masqueraders
I believe that society will never dream like me

I dream of loving, of the empty graveyard
I dream of Vegas and the transcendental wildcard
A place where noone waits to die before they go into the light
And just the blind have sight

I follow nothing but the compass of my instinct
No matter where it leads, I know it will take me to the brink
And leave me there by myself and all alone with my dreams
Can you hear my scream?

I believe in the sanctity of dreams
No more running from these masqueraders
I believe that society will never dream like me
Never dream like me
Society will never dream like me
Never dream like me
Ooh ooh ooh
I believe in the sanctity of dreams
No more running from these masqueraders
I believe that society will never dream like me
Oh-oh
I believe in the sanctity of dreams
No more running from these masqueraders
I believe that society will never dream like me
Never dream like me
Society
Society will never dream like me
Society
Society
Society will never dream like me


Run Away

ďLooks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
And you can hear it in my whispered cries for love
I need your blissful touch to carry me away again
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

"Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
I'm like a posse that's been ridin' for days
I've got the scars to prove that love has had its day and it's way with me
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just...

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

This ain't no night to be on your own
You've got to know where you're coming from
To know just where you're goin', lord
You've got to know where you're coming from
This ain't no night to be on your own

Run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It aint no victory but I don't care
I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care
Run away
Run away
Run away


Lifes Marches On

In the country
The farms and the orchards swell
With oranges and peaches
A little bit of truth as well

In the city
Politicians beat their drum
All the suits come a runnin'
Itís all degeneration

Life Marches On
Life Marches On
Life Marches On

In the country
Everybody thinks we're dumb
But we built the fire
Why'd you come and get you some?

In the city, skyscrapers touch the sky
What's the use in being so high up
When it's only gonna bleed you dry?

Life Marches On
Life Marches On

Life Marches On

In the country
The stars shine brighter
Than in the city
In the country
In the country

In the city
I turn on the radio
Only leaves me down with the question:
What happened to our generation?

Life Marches On
Life Marches On
Life Marches On
Oh yeah, yeah
Life Marches On
Oh yeah
Life Marches On
Life Marches On
Life Marches On


Like I Do

Darling, I feel like a god when I am next to you
Something sacred, someone straight and true
Tell me, do you feel the same way too?

Darling, your face is radiant with the light of love
The kind thatís sent straight down from up above
And now youíre all Iím thinking of
Thinking of
Thinking of
Thinking of

Donít you give me loving like a revelation
Donít you make me burn and make me feel the danger
Salutations to the maker of my finest hour
Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover
Donít you ever leave

Darling, I feel like a god when I am next to you
Something worth the worship of this honest fool
Tell me do you feel the same way too?
Like I do?
Like I do
Like I do

Donít you give me loving like a revelation
Donít you make me burn and make me feel the danger
Salutations to the maker of my finest hour
Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover
Donít you ever
Donít you give me loving like a revelation
Donít you make me burn and make me feel the danger
Salutations to the maker of my finest hour
Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover
Donít leave
Donít leave
Oh yeah
Donít leave
Donít you give me loving like a revelation
Donít you make me burn and make me feel the danger
Salutations to the maker of my finest hour
Goddess, queen, mother, sister, lover
Donít you ever
Donít you give me loving like a revelation
Donít you give me love
Donít you give me love
Donít you give me love
Donít you feel the same way like I do?
Like I do
Like I do
Like I do


Sweet Release

I hope (I hope) she lights that candle
I hope (I hope) she shows me everything and all that light can bring
Her skin (her skin), it begs my worship
Like a mad temple crowd
I crush her, she goes down
We melt up from the groundÖ
Up to better times, sweet release, take me now, take me now
Up to better times, sweet release, take me now, take me now, yeah

Doubt (doubt), get right behind me
Youíre a cloud, just a blemish on the sun
And thereís better times to come
Our love, this cloak and dagger
This silent will to brighten everything
And find the road that leadsÖ
Up to better times, sweet release, take me now, take me now
Up to better times, sweet release, take me now, take me now, yeah, oh

Oh, and if we die tonight, take our leave from this plastic place
Become the dove, just fly awayÖ
Up to better times, sweet release, take me now, take me now
Come on baby up to your better times
Your sweet release, take me now, take me now, oh
Oohh oooh
Oh.


Every Time I See Your Face

I was looking everywhere to find you
By and by, my intentions were good
But I know I donít watch where Iím walking
When I know I should
If the nighttime turns into day before I say what I mean
God damn all these obstacles before me, yeah

Every time I see your face, itís like Heaven opens up her gates
And I fall behind, I just close my eyes, I just close my eyes

If the quicksand of love and deception
Finds a way to come between you and me
Donít fret, Iím gonna cut through the darkness and set us free, yeah
And if you wanna just lay with me darlin, let the mystery silently speak
Take my tongue, take my lungs if you want, Iíll even try not to breathe, yeah

Every time I see your face, something overwhelms my heart with grace
And I fall behind, I just close my eyes I just close my eyes
Every time I see your face

I know you are the one (I was looking everywhere to find you)
I know youíre more than wonderful
I know you are the one

Every time I see your face, itís like Heaven opens up her gates
And I fall behind, I just close my eyes, I just close my eyes
Every time I see your face, something overwhelms my heart with grace
And I fall behind, I just close my eyes, I just close my eyes
Yeah, oh, oh, yeah
Every time
I see your face
Every time
Every time


LightHouse

The lighthouse lost its light on her a long time ago
She got so used to it, this long and winding road
Iíll never ever let you go, oh
I canít believe she whispered to me
I donít wanna breathe
Oh no

This ship of fools sails west by night-time and by day
Circumnavigates her globe like a bullet gone astray
Come on home baby, where itís safe
I canít believe she whispered to me
I donít wanna breathe
I donít wanna breathe

Even if you drink from the chalice of cheap escape and fade away
Iíll never ever let you go
I canít believe she whispered to me
I donít wanna breathe
I donít wanna breathe
She whispered to me
Now I canít believe she whispered to me
Oh lord, lord, lord


River Town

And from a tiny river town you came
With mammaís rock-star dreams in tow, and daddyís brains
But the rats they fought you oh yeah tooth and nail
With the way they rigged this game, you had to fail
But thatís all behind you now, boy

And from a tiny river town you came
With nothing up your sleeve but a dirty forearm and an ace
They drug you through that slaughterhouse at will
You were the soldier without a kill
You were the soldier without a kill

Oh, whoís gonna save your soul?
Whoís gonna make your heart beat again?

And from a tiny river town you came
Across the Rocky Mountains all in search of better days
But paradise took you out and left the bill
You were the healer without the thrill
You were the ecstasy without the pill

Oh, whoís gonna save your soul?
Whoís gonna make your heart beat again?
Whoís gonna light up your dark?
Whoís gonna save your soul?
Whoís gonna be there?
Whoís gonna light up your dark?

And from a tiny river town you came
With mammaís rock-star dreams in tow and daddyís brains
Youíd better turn back before the frost sets in
These desert nights are for weathered men
The ones whoíve already given in

Oh, whoís gonna save your soul?
Whoís gonna make your heart beat again?
Whoís gonna save your soul?
Now that youíve given in
Now that youíve given in
Now that youíve given in


Out To Dry

The dust had just settled
Sheís wonderiní, what happens now?
I donít know where I am
Iíve never seen this place before
Am I dreaminí?
Or is this the real world?
Your loveís too good for me

Lay with me lady, youíre driviní me crazy
I promised you all my life
These things that sustain me, oh how they drain me
But Iíll never hang you out to dry

The sun had just faded
Sheís wonderiní, where are we now?
I donít know who, who I am
I aint never felt like this before
Am I dreaminí?
Or is this the real world
Your loveís too good for me

Lay with me lady, youíre driviní me crazy
I promised you all my life
These things they sustain me, oh how they drain me
But Iíll never hang you out to dry
Iíll never hang you out to dry
Iíll never hang you lord
Iíll never hang you lord
Iíll never hang you lord
Iíll never hang you lord
Iíll never hang you lord

Lay with me lady, youíre driviní me crazy
I promised you all my life
These things they sustain me, oh how they drain me
But Iíll never hang you out to dry
Iíll never hang you out to dry
Iíll never hang you out to dry
Ooh ooh
(to fadeÖ.)


Bring The People Together

I was lost, I am found
All the buildings are burnt to the ground
I canít stay, I canít leave
I canít do no nothingí, not a thing

Do you see your son down on the street?
Is that a gun or just the father that he needs?
Do you cry, do you weep?
Do you see the world as only tragedy?

In the early morniní there were revelations in my mind
I can hear the masters cryiní out from their graves most every night
Bring the people together
Bring the people together

It's a crime, this dark time
We wait for presidents who never turn the tide
I find it hard, I find it strange
Go to the movies, have Picasso paint your cage
I've had enough, I think I'm done
So sell me down the river, I'll be waiting there in love

In the early morning there were revelations in my mind
I can hear the masters crying out from the graves most every night
Bring the people together
Bring the people together, yeah
Bring the people together
Bring the people together, yeah

Bring the people together
For the sake of these children we leave behind
Can you remember a time, a time, a timeÖ

I was lost, I am found
All the buildings are burnt to the ground
I canít stay, I canít leave
I canít do no nothingí, not a thing

Tell me, is this a nation? Is this a tribe?
Is this the world or just some everyday beehive?
We need it now, yeah, we need it quick
Listen to lovers, better quit it with this shit...


What Are We Fighting For?

Battle flag in the bassinet
Oil and blood on the bayonet
Crowded downtown hit the floor
What are we fightin' for?

What are we fightin' for?
What are we fightin' for?

The world got smaller but the bombs got bigger
Holocaust on a hairpin trigger
Aint no game so forget the score
What are we fightin' for?

What are we fightin' for?
What are we fightin' for?
What are we fightin' for?

What will I tell my daughter?
What will you tell your son?
Where were all the doves?
That we were nothing but a shadow,
a faceless generation devoid of love?

The crucifix ain't no baseball bat
Tell me what kind of God is that?
Ain't nothing more godless than a war
So what are we fightin' for?

What are we fightin' for?
What are we fightin' for?
What are we fightin' for?

What will I tell my daughter?
What will you tell your son?
Where were all the doves?
That we were nothing but a shadow,
A faceless generationÖ

What are we fightin' for?
(To fade)
