(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Come With Me Now

Come with me now
Come with me now

Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it's something I've read
I stood at this door before, I'm told
But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that's real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn't even take a bite

Far away
I heard him say (Come with me now)
Don't delay
I heard him say (Come with me now)

Far away
I heard him say (Come with me now)
Don't delay
I heard him say (Come with me now)

Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
I think I've thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now

Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now

Sex On The Radio

We all live on an idle TV show
Get turned on by sex on the radio
Yeah it's low

Now she walks and talks like everybody else
Loses control and she ends up in a motel
Yea it hurts like hell

And all our secrets go
Out the window
And all the world knows now

And love is always out of reach
It's always out of reach
It's always out of reach
But I never want to stop trying, no

Imitation slave the stoner's stuck in bed
And while off camera, he says f*ck protest
No he's gotta get some rest.

And all our secrets go
Out the window
And all the world knows now

And love is always out of reach
It's always out of reach
It's always out of reach
But I never want to stop trying, no

Escape

Every few thousand years
Come true man's greatest fears
All the living things
Mother nature brings - to tears

When the bombs are bursting in the air
And the rockets are making that red glare
I'm heading down
Down to that good hope town - where the weather's fair

So why don't you come away
With me my love
We'll do what it takes
I'll keep you safe

Why don't you stay by me
And when the time comes
We'll escape

When the big one finally hit's LA
When Yellowstone has it's day
We're heading to the southern tip
On a plane or on a ship
We'll do what it takes - we'll find a way

And if that cloud forms up above
No sign anywhere of a dove
There'll be no reason left to stay
We'll try and live another day
In a place where there's still love

Kids These Days

Oh kids these days
They don't have respect
They just talk on those cellphones
And listen to their tape cassettes

It's what that teacher said
With disgust in every breath
His students listened carelessly
They were easily unimpressed

He said it with such conviction
Whether truth or fiction
And it went
Round and round

They'd reinvent the wheel
Watch it spin and marvel
At the breakthrough
They had found

Another war to end all wars
Depressions are no more
Gravity works on occasion
It won't always bring you to the floor

A Spanish questionnaire
Conquest through love affair
A trillion here or there
I'm sure it'll work with a little prayer

As We Are

We say we love
But don't know how
And as we are
We cannot reach that far

Oh, we've tried
At times we've lied
But few have known
And fewer have shown

What I'm trying to show you
Is something that I was shown
And what I'm trying to tell you
Is something I was told
But it's so hard to see
And it's so hard to feel

Ooh

Now where do we begin
It's said we must look within
Cause love is to be and to be is to love
So reach up, reach high and someday we'll find out what love is

What I'm trying to show you
Is something that I was shown
And what I'm trying to tell you
Is something I was told.
But it's so hard to see
And it's so hard to feel

I Want To Know

What's it gonna take
Are we gonna forever
Make the same mistake

I wanna know
Will you take a stand
Will you raise a hand
For your brother's sake

You talk about the deluge
You talk about centrifuge
You got something to prove
Tell me - who's eyes you gonna use

And I, yeah I
What's it gonna take
And you... yeah you
What's it gonna be

I wanna know

What's it gonna be
Gotta another theory
You want me to hear
Taking your refuge in your reason
Just to beat the fear
That we don't know why we're here

Even cold hard facts
Have got a way of changing
Their stripes in the light of a new day
The world we hold so tight and true
Turn it on it's head

And I

I wanna know

Living under pretense
Always on the defense
Always on the fence
Tell me, what's it gonna be

Hey I Don't Know

Tears are shed, a shame
I should have known
I should have thought
I could have thought
Before I cast that stone

The waves radiate far and wide
There's a ringing in my ears
For a minute
I think I'm going blind

Tears are shed, a shame
I should have known
The crown weighs heavy
Heavy as I sit back in my throne

I say hey, it wasn't me
I'm just a pawn
But the devil's not into details
Where have all the heroes gone?

Hey I don't know
Why don't you tell me?

The dream is broken
Now the mind must be woken

So what are you waiting for
Tell me what's the hesitation?
What are you waiting for
Tell me what is the delay?

Hey I don't know
The victor earns the title "The Great"
All the mysteries get unlearned
All the history just becomes a string of dates

The hordes overrun in a clean sweep
Destroying everything that was built
Where's the glory in making mothers weep?

Hey I don't know

The dream is broken
Now the mind must be woken

So what are you waiting for
Tell me what's the hesitation?
What are you waiting for
Your special invitation?
What are you waiting for
Tell me what is the delay?

Hey I don't know

Traveling On

So long my friend, my foe, my love, my pain
The road's calling out my name
Dreaming of La Boheme
Maybe I'll go to Barbizon
Or see a girl before she catches cold and she's gone
Or maybe I'll just travel on
Travel on

So long my flame, my warmth, my fear, my fight
The road's calling again tonight
Dreaming under street lights
Maybe I'll catch a train to Rome
See the world until I can't go on
Then maybe I'll come traveling home

'Cause when the road takes it's toll
And these cities come and go
Filled with people I don't know
You'll be in my heart
And I'll dream of where you are tonight.

And when the years pass us by
I wonder if we'll cry
For losing so much time
For moments we may miss
For the love that still exists tonight

Maybe I'll go it all alone
See the world and make my way back home
Or maybe I'll keep traveling on

Take Me Back

I talk of six while forgetting five
Can't even taste if my food's alive
I'm watching music that I can't hear
Staring down some invisible fear

And once again the question's asked
I answer yes! but the moment's passed
I'm guess I'm always tomorrow-bound
How many more till I'm underground?

Oh oh I remember now
Too far below to turn around
Too bright a light to let go now
Take me back my friend
Take me back back on home

Now what I'm saying is nothing new
This repetition's right on cue
A wise man said you're amused to death
Too much talk - too much wasted breath

You're overjoyed and over-fed
Over-sexed - you're almost dead
Gotta work gotta stay awake
God I'm tired can I take a break

It's A Good Life

Too much information
People drowning in receipts
Some days you wanna just chuck it all
Try your luck and hit the streets

It's like your shoes are tied together
Each hand got string attached
Some nights you wanna just say f*ck it
Maybe you just light a match

Yeah we all have had those dreams
O-o-of the sun, and the sea and an island
Where you switch off
It's a good life
It's a good life
For me

This modern thing is getting old
Are we man or (are) we machine
You always done what you been told
Kinda like a monkey in a movie scene

Spend half your life waiting for that light to change
Just so you can make ends meet
Everybody always looking for a fight it's insane
And now you need a pill just to get some sleep

Yeah...

I'm Only Joking

Wadu-aidu-wadaidu...

There is a song
You're trembling to its tune
At the request of the moon

Licking her chops
She looks at the lunatics
She needs another fix

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read
Only a crazy little thing I read

Maybe the planets
Are trying to become the stars
And we really came from Mars

The earth is alive
And man is a parasite
And heavenly bodies make us fight

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read
Only a crazy little thing I read

Wadu-aidu-wadaidu...

There is a song
You're trembling to its tune
At the request of the moon

Licking her chops
She looks at the lunatics
She needs another fix

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read

I'm only joking
I don't believe a thing I've said
What are you smoking?
I'm just a-f*cking with your head
Only a crazy little thing I read
Only a crazy little thing I read

This Time I Won't Forget

Oh, I will try
But I tell you it ain't easy using only words
And so I'll begin
But I'll start at the end, the day I said so long my friend

I still remember well
His smile that would not die
And the tears begin to swell
Tears I dare not fight

Cause now I'm alive
I'm taking my first breath
Oh I'm alive
And this time I won't forget

Now as I look back
Wish I'd known that someday soon he'd long be gone
So, I will try
To remember the end, the day I said so long my friend

They go by many names
Mother, father, brother, son
And the tears begin to swell
Tears I dare not fight

Cause now I'm alive
I'm taking my first breath
Oh I'm alive
And this time I won't forget

Oh I'm alive
And this time I won't forget
