SEARCHIN’

Show Lyrics

SEARCHIN’

Downtown looking for you in London
Driving empty streets of LA
Concrete canyons uptown New York
Send me back to check Marseille

A hot tip takes me down to Dubai
Where smugglers sail me to Bombay (Mumbai, Mumbai)
I find a trail that leads to Shanghai
And then down to Rio the next day

Oh, I’m searchin’, still searchin’
But this searchin’ is taking far too long
I’m searchin’, and I’ll keep searchin’
‘Til I find where honesty has gone

Well you can say you lie for her sake
When you hide the way you cheat
And that might help you face the mirror
But deep inside you know you’re weak

And you can justify your crime wave
Your closet full of three-piece suits, yeah
Penthouse views and offshore millions
The only way you measure truth

Yeah, I’m searchin’, still searchin’
But this searchin’ is taking far too long
I’m searchin’, and I’ll keep searchin’
‘Til I find where honesty has gone

Teleprompter politicians promising they’re gonna listen
Gonna make things better this time round, you’ll see
Then we learn the bankers paid them, big-oil billionaires enslaved them
And the truth goes six feet underground … again

Well, downtown looking for you in Moscow
Draining swamps in old DC
Yeah, Tokyo, Delhi, Paris, Beijing
Cape Town, Cairo, Boston, Berlin
Nothin’ much, nothin’ much to see

Yeah, I’m searchin’, still searchin’
But this searchin’ is taking far too long
I’m searchin’, and I’ll keep searchin’
‘Til I find where honesty has gone

DIVIDED AND CONQUERED

Show Lyrics

DIVIDED AND CONQUERED

(Verse 1)
Born in Chicago, raised in DC
No silver spoon, just my grandma and me
In that one-room apartment she kept me on track
Got me to college and said don’t look back
But they came to me one night and told me she’d died
All alone in that room where she’d helped me survive
And I sobbed like a child from the guilt in my bones
Divided and conquered I fell all alone

(Chorus)
Yes, divided and conquered we fall one by one
No one to help us when we come undone
Nobody there who can throw us a line
Divided and conquered we lose every time

(Verse 2)
Well, they sold me on freedom and I bought their lies
We massed in the desert, blood lust in our eyes
We would kill for our country and die for their king
Holders of Truth, we would kill ‘til we win
But their ‘bad guys’ were human, with children and dreams
And the nightmares still haunt me, the gunfire and screams
When the lies were exposed I was already home
Divided and conquered I fell all alone

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)
I worked like a mad man, spent like a fool
Bowed to the boss man, obeyed every rule
Kept my mind on the job and my thoughts to myself
Just turned away when they fired someone else
So they upsized my workload and downsized my pay
Forty years in, took my pension away
There was nobody left when they came for my home
Divided and conquered I fell all alone

(Chorus)

HUMAN BEING

(Verse 1 & 2)
The eagles are flying
The wind’s in my face
I’m high on the mountain top
Oh yeah, in my magical place

I’m dining on sunlight
I’m drinking down the rain
I’m doing the best I can
In this life as a human being

(Chorus)
Well, it’s a fine time
Such a fine, fine, fine time
Yes, it’s a fine time
To be alive as a human being
Yes, it’s a fine time
Feeling love with this body and mind
Well, it’s a fine time
To be alive as a human being

(Verse 3 & 4)
Well, some come to suffer
And some come to win
Some come to learn there’s no such thing
As original sin

Some come for lovers
Some give their whole life to family or friends
Some don’t mind living alone
‘Cause they know we come back again

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
The mystery of ecstasy and agony
They say it’s why we’re here
Well maybe so but not for me
I only came to Earth to have you near

(Solo)

HUSH, LITTLE ONE

Hush, little one
Don’t you cry
Momma will sing you a lullaby
Rocking you gently

Kiss all your tears away

Feel my love touching you deep inside

Drift into sleep with my lullaby

Gotta love those yoga girls
Little lululemon pearls
Gotta love those cowboy boots
On hard-riding gals who wanna shoot
Gotta love those business ladies
Power suits and Wall Street dailies
Gotta love those hippy chics
Peace and love and healing all the sick
Gotta love the men who love them

Get along, buddy
You put your pants on just like I do

Don’t you let big Google clone you

Face-to-face start to talk again
Unplug and hug somebody

SAD TO SAY

Show Lyrics

SAD TO SAY

(Verse 1)
It seems at times we never learn
We light the fires and watch them burn
We feel the pain the victims feel
But flat deny the sex appeal
Of front-row seats to agony
That we keep tuning in to see
It’s sad to say we crave the fires
That satisfy our dark desires

(Verse 2)
It’s sad to say we bow our heads
To empty men on empty quests
Who steal the gold and buy the power
Then broadcast to us every hour
That everything will be just fine
As long as we just stay in line
So we don’t mind the things they do
As long as it’s not to me or you

(Chorus)
It’s sad to say
Oh ohh, it’s sad to say
So sad to say
Each passing day
That we don’t learn
Pages turn
But we don’t learn

(Verse 3)
It seems at times we worship gods
Who’d have us die for worthless causes
Text your friends and Tweet your list
About the sale you almost missed
Describe the prize that’s in your hands
But don’t admit you don’t understand
The emptiness that gnaws inside
You swore this one would satisfy

(Verse 4)
It seems at times we learn the most
When we’re down to our one last hope
One last chance to make things right
To bare your soul with all your might
Confess your crimes, confess your sins
Tell her what a fool you’ve been
Then wait for her to make the move
‘Cause you’ve made her the judge of you

(Chorus)

“Once upon a time, long, long ago …
(USA chant)

(Verse 1)
Momma’s in the kitchen gonna make it finger lickin (makin sure it’s )
Daddy’s screaming at the TV
Sister sitting pretty on her phone lookin busy
Lil’ brother’s on his PS3
Happy Thanksgiving, carve a turkey it’s tradition
But first somebody mention the Lord (we gotta)
Momma turn the TV up before you come and sit down
Daddy likes to hear every score

(Chorus)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
American Idol, Super Bowl Game
Dancing with the Hollywood stars
Preachers on the TV saving our souls
While we worship in our favorite bars

Sayin’ Jesus helped him beat the other team
Like God’s up there in heaven doin’ a little bettin’
And he’s backing the American dream
Yeah, yeah, that’s the way America dreamed

(Verse 2)
Nothing could be finer than American designers
Every advertiser tells us it’s the truth (advertisement says that)
Bet your bottom dollar gonna pay someone to holler
‘Bout our mission to the moon and Babe Ruth
Nobody can build a bomb the way that we can build ‘em
There’s a body count dispelling ay doubt
Immigrants and sinners, here we all can be a winner
Hell, we even let the gay folks out

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Yeah, Yankee doodle, Yankee doodle day
Yeah, Yankee doodle, in the USA

(Verse 3)
Being on the top somebody always takes a shot
But so far nobody has taken us down
Might be China’s future, you can say whatever suits ya
But for now it’s still America’s crown
Cheney was a mad man, Bush a blind fool
Obama was a wolf in disguise
No, I never would defend ‘em
But god can you imagine
If the bastards hadn’t have been on our side

(Chorus)
American Idol, Super Bowl Game
Dancing with the Hollywood stars
Preachers on the TV selling vitamin G
While we worship in our favorite bars

And he’s backing the American Dream
Yeah, yeah, that’s the way America dreamed

TAKE A STEP

Show Lyrics

TAKE A STEP

(Verse 1)
Young boy takes his very first steps
Young mom gets a welfare cheque
Young dad in the bar buying beers
Doesn’t care that the mom’s in tears

(Verse 2)
Young fire in their loins one night
So long ago in their young, young lives
Never dreaming that the seed might grow
Add the months up, what do you know, it’s a boy

(Chorus)
Take a step, baby step
A momma step and a daddy step, too
Take a step but don’t forget
That you own every move you make
And every heart you break

(Verse 3)
Young man doing well in school
Young mom thinks he’s oh so cool
On her own now, young dad’s gone
They’re better off, he was oh so wrong

(Verse 4)
Young man’s gonna graduate
Young mom, she’s gonna celebrate
Working two jobs she don’t mind
Doesn’t care ‘bout her wrinkles and lines
That’s her boy!

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Some rise to the challenge
Some learn from the pain
Some find a way forward
Again and again

(Verse 5)
Old man takes a fearful step
If he falls he can break his hip
All alone in a cheap hotel
Just a thin wall away from hell

(Verse 6)
Looking back on his sad, sad life
Was a time that he had a wife
Lovely girl with his fine young son
Such a fool when he cut and run like a boy

(Chorus)
Take a step, baby step
A momma step and a daddy step, too
Take a step but don’t forget
That you own every move you make
And every heart you break
Every move you make
And every heart you break

EDNA (No Lord To Listen)

Show Lyrics

EDNA (No Lord To Listen)

(Verse 1)
She walks the streets at midnight, her life bagged in her arms
Her fantasies are friendly, her memories mean her harm
She talks to make sure loneliness is always kept at bay
And if you listen closely I’m sure you’ll hear her say

(Chorus)
“There is no Lord to listen so there is no need to pray
We’re born to begin dying and I’m well on my way”

(Verse 2)
Her words were cold and bitter when I woke her from deep sleep
Her bag clutched like a pillow, an empty bottle at her feet
I told her to be leaving before the first train came
Then I sank into her dark eyes and I swear I heard them say

“There is no Lord to listen so there is no need to pray
We’re born to begin dying and I’m well on my way”

(Verse 3)
A life of open winters was singing in her breath
The bottle was her companion, her saviour would be death
She seemed so lost and scattered that I started on my way
But I froze to hear her saying, “May you never feel the pain”

“When there is no Lord to listen so there is no need to pray
When you’re born to begin dying and you find you’re well on your way”

(Verse 4)
I sat that night and listened to a life I could have been
A life within a nightmare, all hope within a dream
I’ve had my family near me, she’s never had one home
Her mama left her dying the day that she was born, saying

“There is no Lord to listen so there is no need to pray
We’re born to begin dying and I’m well on my way”

(Verse 5)
My money found her open, but my pity met with scorn
She said she knew some rich men who needed it much more
Though fate had not been friendly she’d fought to find her way
And when the Reaper called her she’d have no debts to pay

“Cause there is no Lord to listen so there is no need to pray
We’re born to begin dying and I’m well on my way”

(Verse 6)
I don’t know why old Edna was the one to cut my heart
I’d found so many others lying hopeless in the dark
She lifted up her bundle then she turned and walked away
I shivered, deep inside me I heard the voices say

“Is there no Lord to listen? Is there no need to pray?
Are we born to begin dying? Am I well on my way?”

TIME TICKS AWAY

TIME TICKS AWAY

(Verse 1)
I have felt tomorrow
Slowly let me go
Broken in the darkness
All alone
And I have fought the sorrow
So deep, like mothers for lost sons
Knowing I will never, never
Get home

(Chorus)
But time ticks away
And now I can say
That all of those battles
Brought the best out of me
Yeah, time ticks away
And now that I look backwards
And gaze upon the path that is me
I know that my battles
Show me all I can be

(Verse 2)
Well I have watched the mirror
Impatient for some change
Just waiting for my saviour
To arrive
Yes, I have chased salvation
So deep, running from my pain
Now I find my saviours
Inside

(Chorus)
Yes time ticks away
And now I can say
That all of those battles
Brought the best out of me
Yeah, time ticks away
And now that I look backwards
And gaze upon the path that is me
I know that my battles
Show me all I can be
Yeah, all of my battles
Show me all I can be
All of those battles
Brought the best out of me

SO EASY

(Verse 1 & 2)
You can try to sell child poverty
As the way that things just have to be
But your One Percent
Never feel their hunger burn

You can try to sell your politics
With your promises of no dirty tricks
But your time is up
Gonna watch the tables turn

(Chorus)
So easy, we’ve made it so damn easy to lie
So easy to say blame is never mine
So easy to say it’s always been this way
So easy to be victims of our time

(Verse 3 & 4)
You can try to sell your brand new pill
As the cure for almost every ill
But you’ve been caught lying
Time and time again

You can try to sell your 2.0
As the latest upgrade to save my soul
But your spyware
Gives my identity to them

(Chorus)

(Solo)

(Verse 5 & 6)
You can try to sell your point of view
With the barrel of a gun or two
You can swear your lies are right
And their lies wrong

You can try to sell your paradise
As the only true path to Happiness
But the God I know
Brings everyone along

(Chorus)

WE ARE THE MASTERS (OF OUR SUFFERING)

Show Lyrics

WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR SUFFERING

Kill my dreams
Steal my heart
Break my body into
A million parts
Find the lesson in the pain
Or we’ll be back this way again

Ship of fools
Sailing blind
Ends up shattered on the
Reefs of time
No one wants to take the blame
We seem addicted to the pain

Brown eyes swimming for the surface
Someone reaching for your hand
Will you offer them some solace?
Will you finally take a stand?

We close our eyes
And walk the ledge
Hand in hand we light the fuse
That blows the bridge
Now we’ll see what we have learned
Can we heal what we have burned?

We are the masters of our suffering
There is no need to look above
We are the masters of our suffering
It is a measure of our love

Look around
Check your heart
Salvation waits
Like a lover in the dark
Find the lesson in the pain
Or we’ll be back this way again

We are the masters of our suffering
There is no need to look above
We are the masters of our suffering
It is a measure of our love

We close our eyes
And walk the ledge
Hand in hand we light the fuse
That blows the bridge
Now we’ll see what we have learned
Can we heal what we have burned?

Stuck in the car, but what can we do

And your summer just might pass you by

Because my life is so much better when I’m in the arms of friends
So I reach out now and I grab your hand

Lift your heart and feet

There’s a man on a throne
Laughing each time you think
Your thoughts are your own

For your sex life, rotten life, urges to kill
He’s the man
Wants to medicate us all

Driving freedom underground

Nobody can cut so deep
Knock me down, take my feet
Nobody can tease and taunt me
You make believe you want me

Watch me die, feel me burn

Nobody got a hold on me
Nobody got a hold on me
Nobody got a hold on me
Hold on me, hold on me (now)

Hear the whistle, train is comin
Grab the guitar case start running

IN AGES PAST

(Verse 1 & 2)
It’s rarely been so easy
Touching like a friend
Passing innuendos, double entendres
I’ve rarely seen so many secrets
Wander from my mind
How can we be so open
In so little time?

Could it be we’re lovers
From time long disappeared
Memories subconscious, stranded by the years
Could it be more than fantasy
To dream of ancient lands
When you were my Lady
And I was your man

(Chorus)
In ages past, in Arab dhows
Sailing Mombassa bay
It timeless lands, on moonlit sands
Loving warm nights away
When silk and spice and caravans
Fought through Asian rains
Were we standing as one, lady
Will we be one again

(Verse 3)
Some would say I’m crazy
To say that you’ve been mine
Some would say misguided love
Is messing with my mind
Some would even say I’m just a fool
Caught up in dreams
But your eyes keep on singing
It’s more than it seems

(Chorus)

To the songs where they lay waiting
Now I leave it all behind
But I pray you understand

(Chorus)
I am there with you now
Close your eyes, you can feel me
I am there with you now
Though it just cannot be

(Verse 3 & 4)
If I leave you with my words
Will they be enough to soothe you
It’s a burden I will bear
In the place I now go

Only one thing I will take
Yeah, they can scatter my belongings
But every moment spent with you
Will be the light for my soul

(Chorus)
I am there with you now
Close your eyes, you can feel me
I am there with you now
Though it just cannot be

I am there with you now
Never doubt, never ever wonder
I am there with you now
Being all I can be

CANTINA (Come Dance With Me)

(Verse 1)
A summer night, a small cantina
The music plays, a senorita
Stands alone, her eyes are closed
She starts to sway, the music grows
She lifts her skirt and moves her bare feet
She steps so light that no one dares speak
She casts a spell
That says come dance with me

(Verse 2)
Her story goes he left her here
The Battle Hymns were in his ears
He waved to her and rode away
She waits for him until this day
She cried for years and fought the passion
But now she knows it will not happen
And so she says
Won’t someone dance with me

(Chorus)
Into my arms
Into my life
Into my heart
Just for tonight
Into me soft
Into me slow
Into my memories but then
You must go

(Bridge)
She’ll squeeze you so tight
To fight back the tears
She’ll call out his name
If she feels him near

(1/2 Verse)
A summer night, a small cantina
The music plays, a senorita
Casts a spell
That says come dance with me

(Chorus)
Into my arms
Into my life
Into my heart
Just for tonight
Into me soft
Into me slow
Into my memories but then
You must go

(solo)

(Ending Verse)
A summer night, a small cantina
The music plays, a senorita
Stands alone, her eyes are closed
She starts to sway, the music grows
She lifts her skirt and moves her bare feet
She steps so light that no one dares speak
She casts a spell
That says come dance with me

BLACK SPRUCE (It Will Never Let Me Go)

Show Lyrics

BLACK SPRUCE (It Will Never Let Me Go)

(Verse 1)
Little light in this life of mine
Little life left at all
Little chance I can find my way back home
Little hope if I fall

(Chorus)
The snow drifts, the wind howls
The hard ice cracks beneath me
The only world I’ve ever known
It haunts me, it taunts me
It does not seem to want me
But it will never let me go

(Verse 2)
Ever scared since they came at me
Ever long, every night
Ever blind, trying to drown my fear by drinking
Ever wrong not to fight

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)
Me, I know, it’s the way life is
Something dies so we survive
Me, I know, it’s this memory that will kill me
Let it go or I die

(Chorus)

RIGHT THERE WITH YOU

Show Lyrics

RIGHT THERE WITH YOU

So far away
I might seem
So far away
But feel me
Right there right now
Always
Right there with you

So long ago
It feels like it was
So long ago
Our first kiss
But go there right now
And I’ll be
Right there with you

Time gives and time takes away
Life makes no promise to stay

Yet so deep we go
So fearless
Yes, so deep we go
Ad I’ll be
Right there, right now
Always right there with you

Time gives and time takes away
Life makes no promise to stay

So far away
I might seem
So far away
But feel me
Right there, right now
Always
Right there with you
Yeah, right there, right now
Always with you
