Track Name: Keeping Up With Yesterday
Keeping Up With Yesterday

Floating out in space
Such a quiet place
You can see the human race , from on high

Vying to be seen
Always in between
Here and what has been
On your mind

Try to grow , try to see
Weightlessness is free
If only just to be
Keeping up with yesterday

The stars all look the same
One million miles away
Can you touch the flames ,
of the sun?

Tryin’ to find a spark
And not to jump a shark
Crashing into Noah's ark
In the sky

Try to grow , try to see
Weightlessness is free
If only just to be
Keeping up with yesterday
Track Name: Morning Star
Morning Star

The bitter taste
Of contemplation's cup
Gazing up at the morning star
Always pushing too hard
Always down on the world
When will peace be enjoyed
Half completed
Half destroyed

Your heart is in the shadows
Of youth
Of which you never understood
A screen in the neon
Glistens with praise
Through this union
Truth slips away
Just like night turns to day

Why does it take such a long, long time
Waiting for a fool, to change his mind

The beauty of endlessness
Gazing up at the morning star
Track Name: Ain't No Free Man
Ain’t No Free Man

6’6 and a warm smile
walks like Brando , he’s got satan in his eyes
He’s goin for the world record , you’re gonna die
There’s a killer in the room
God is on his side

Ain’t no free man in the eyes of the law
Thirty years behind a wall
Nothin’ but the truth , don’t mean nothin’ at all
Ain’t no free man

Leon Brown and Henry Lee
North Carolina , it was 1983
Breakdown of a system , that’s tattered and flawed
Bendin’ and twistin’
Breakin’ the law

Ain’t no free man in the eyes of the law
Thirty years behind a wall
Nothin’ but the truth , don’t mean nothin’ at all
Ain’t no free man

Down by the river , where the water is cool and runnin’ free
Down by the river , where the water is cool and runnin’ free
Down by the river , where the water is cool and runnin’ free
Down by the river , where the water is cool and runnin’ free

42 is the number true
Row by row , he’s leading you
Down to the gallows , into the chair
No remorse , no despair
Capitol punishment , capitol hill
Capitoline , Jupiters will

Ain’t no free man in the eyes of the law
Thirty years behind a wall
Nothin’ but the truth , don’t mean nothin’ at all
Ain’t no free man

Ain’t no free man !
Ain’t no free man !
Track Name: Just Wastin' Time
Just Wastin’ Time

A harmonica is playing
It calls to you
Floating across a field of sleep
Telling of
A prophecy
A new season
In a humble peep

Just like the poet and all his jazz
No expectation to understand
Secrets concealed just outside your brain
Just wastin' time with you again

Reflections of
The things she said
It's all to much to believe
How a love was found
How it is no more
Now I protect
What I am longing for

Just like the poet and all his jazz
No expectation to understand
Secrets concealed just outside your brain
Just wastin' time with you again
Track Name: I Broke A Heart
I Broke A Heart

I broke a heart , that changes things
The smile she wore , the songs she sings
Even the brave , will be a fool
And hide the sun , behind the moon

All of the language that we know
Can’t stop the damage , this I know
I stole a dream , I broke a heart

And so we danced , one last time
To the guitaron , and steel guitar
And when we go , we go alone
Just like we came , but not the same

All of the language that we know
Can’t stop the damage , this I know
I stole a dream , I broke a heart

And so we danced , one last time
Out of this dream , into the light

All of the language that we know
Can’t stop the damage , this I know
I stole a dream , I broke a heart

All of the language that we know
Can’t stop the damage , this I know
I stole a dream , I broke a heart
Track Name: People Funny
People Funny

Ain't people funny, man
The funny things they do
Ain't people funny, man
Now you funny too

Ain't people funny, man
All over the place
Laughing when there ain't no joke
Shut a door in your face

Ain't people funny, man
The funny things they do
Ain't people funny, man
Now you funny too

When did my name get
Crossed off in your mind
How did you learn to
Be so unkind
Track Name: I Am Awakening
I Am Awakening

Mellow like gold
Pretty as sin
Leaving a clue
To be found again

No promises
As the earth just falls away
Standing at the edge of a vision
I can see my fate

I am awakening
Awakening
Awakening
I am awakening
Awakening
Now I see

Madness hunts you down
But you're not afraid to die
Such a funny feeling
What goes on in your mind

At the sleepy end of a time zone
It's over before you know it
And I never claimed to be
As honest as tomorrow

I am awakening
Awakening
Awakening
I am awakening
Awakening
Now I see
Track Name: Black Rose
Black Rose

Fightin’ back the tears
Fighting for the stolen years
Black rose in a field of maize
Taller than the highest hay

Sing me back home
Sing the pain away

Black rose in the midnight sky
No star so bright , no comet so high
Hear all the galaxy and nebula cry
Have you seen a black rose
In the midnight sky?

Desert rose will take you there
Smell the perfume in the Druin air
Tender as a camp fire lullaby
As p[iercing as a Kookaburras cry
In the night , in the night

Black rose in the midnight sky
No star so bright , no comet so high
Hear all the galaxy and nebula cry
Have you seen a black rose
In the midnight sky?

Blood on the canvas , blood on the land
It’s on your hands , it’s on your hands

Black rose in the midnight sky
No star so bright , no comet so high
Hear all the galaxy and nebula cry
Have you seen a black rose
In the midnight sky?

Black rose in the midnight sky
No star so bright , no comet so high
Hear all the galaxy and nebula cry
Have you seen a black rose
In the midnight sky?
Track Name: All My Heroes Are Crazy
All My Heroes Are Crazy

All my heroes are crazy
Do you think I’m insane?
On the lamb or the road gang
Standing out in the rain

You might find them sleeping
With one eye open
Finger on the trigger , of a gun
And they’ll always be on the run

All my heroes are crazy
Do you think I’m insane
Not necessarily dangerous
They’re just on’ry an’ mean

It takes two people to be half mad
You know love can be evil
Well that ain’t bad
Cause sometimes nothin’ is a real cool hand

There’s no excuses
On the burning deck
When the noose is , around your neck
Your ring of fire is a crackerjack

All my heroes are crazy
Do you think I’m insane
Not necessarily dangerous
They’re just on’ry an’ mean

All my heroes are crazy
Do you think I’m insane?
On the lamb or the road gang
Standing out in the rain

Standing out in the rain…..
Track Name: Psychedelic Jungle
Psychedelic Jungle

In a psychedelic jungle
Can't you see I'm not alone
In a deep, dark valley
Virtues unknown

Like a city of ruins
Both beautiful and sad
So too, is the story
Of a love, once had

This is not a dream
You are still here
And I am not lost anymore

No talk of lonesome highways
Or telling tales of woe
No trying to make sense
Of why your love had to go

Smoke is coming down
My brain, it is on fire
It's just the one thing
That's gonna keep me from crying

Tell me
This is not a dream
You are still here
And I am not lost anymore
