Track Name: Time To Come Home
Songs Lyrics

When the sleeping volcano starts grumbling
And your kingdom is shattered by a stone
And the criminal who killed Robert Kennedy
He's standing outside your window and my how he's grown
And the judge says the house that you built
Is no longer your own
Well its time - It's time to come home

When the guests that you thought would be gratefull
Condemn you for all of the gifts that you give
And you plead with them to accept your own suicide
If only they would allow you just to live
They say no we don't want your loan
We want everything you own
Well its time - It's time to come home

Do you ever wonder why it is that your so understanding
But the more you try the more you find yourself standing all alone
When this fantasy that you thought was going to last forever
Turns into a nightmare of fear that you've never known
Well its time - It's time to come home

When you broke down the barriers between you
Just to discover that your really not the same
Still desperately you must seek acceptance
So they accept you to be the one to blame
And they hate you for the seeds that you've sown
And for thinking that this land is your own
Well its time - It's time to come home

When the mistress that you thought you could marry
Says first your children you must disown
And the dog that you thought was so loyal
Bears his teeth every time you throw him a bone
They say no we don't want your loan
We want everything you own
And its time - It's time to come home
Track Name: Truth Goes Out Naked
Songs Lyrics

When truith goes out naked shes hated and scorned
Temples are closed down - school children are warned
Enemies are united - murderers are freed
They all look so holy with their knife up their sleeve
When truth goes out naked - shes banned accross the state
Those who preach love say for her its ok to hate
But behind the angry faces there's a fear and a chill
Of what the truth will uncover - the innocent blood they have spilled
And those who deal falsely are the ones who really make a fuss
Protecting precious justice when they really mean just-us.
When truth goes out naked
And everybody knows the reason shes been sentenced by the court
Because the jokers who rule - they are loosing their support
When truth goes out naked

Those who try and cover her with clothes she just won't wear
They are only trying to hide themselves from something they can't bear

When truth goes out naked missiles are engaged
Those who are complacent suddenly go flying into a rage
Saying do what you must do - just make it look clean
And the midgets grind their axes and they call her obscene
When truth goes out naked toupees fall from their place
Disbelievers know who they are - it's written all over their face
They say she's dangerous - she must be silenced now
She reveals too much of her figure and she makes us all look like cows
When truth goes out naked

Oh better not debate her but defame her they cry
If your walking on stilts better not look her in the eye

When truth goes out naked - they look up from their books
They hide behind their beards and they give her dirty looks
But the letters fly from the pages and they greet her like a queen
They say you who think you know me - you don't even know the 1st thing
When truth goes out naked

When truth goes out naked - she never really understood
They say why don't you lie just a little - your too honest for your own good
When truth goes out naked
When truth goes out naked - they hide behind the window sill
Sometime they don't even realize - just who it was that they killed
When truth goes out naked

Those who try and cover her with clothes she just won't wear
They are only trying to hide themselves from something they can't bear
Track Name: Where is Your Heart
Songs Lyrics

You used to say give peace a chance
So they took a piece and another piece and another one
You used to say we shall overcome
And so they did and now they hate you for what you've done
You used to say all you need is love
But tell me if you still believe it
When your lying in a pool of your own blood

You used to say you want to change all the rules
And now you see somehow they just don't apply to you
And you wonder well how can that be?
How can you believe in something that you just can't see
With all of the intelligence that you boast
You've condemned what you love most
So go now and finish what you did start
You've been to school and you know your so smart
But tell me - where is your heart

You used to say you just want to be free
Now the criminals say - so do we
You used to say power to the people
Well now the people got power and they took away your little flower
You were a child once and you had a dream
But ain't it hard to wake up and see that sometimes people get mean

Well the master who wrote the book
He stood quietly as you did scoff
He let you dig your own hole
With your very own words you been caught
By the children that you did raise to be rebels in the protest days
I hear them say they want to tear you apart
And you agree with them cause your so smart
But tell me where is your heart
Track Name: Johnny Boy
Songs Lyrics

Johnny Boy what a shame you left the world this you know
I feel so sorry - for this world
They came and took you on that night
When all you asked for was the light of all our love
Your love will carry on

Johnny Boy you never hid your own true feelings
Now your feelings have been broken - like this world
They came and took you on that night
When all you asked for was the light of all our love
Your love will carry on

Johnny Boy so much love you had what crazy hand
Blew you away from this world
They came and took you on that night
When all you asked for was the light of all our love
Your love will carry on
Track Name: Get Back
Can I get my day of rest
When I'm feeling so restless
Can I get my peace of mind
When they want a piece of me
Can I get my freedom
When I'm breaking all the rules
Can I get any wisdom
When I keep hanging out with fools

Can I get my hope back
When I feel all hope is gone
Can I get it back again
Can I get back home

Can I feel the sun shine
When I slept the day away
Can I get my ticket
When I ain't got no place to go
Can I reach for things
When my heart is so heavy
How can I rock the boat
When my own hand ain't steady
(Chorus)
Track Name: Brick By Brick
Songs Lyrics

Can a light - Be put out
Can such a light - Be put out
Is that all there is - It's not possible - Such a light

Goin to kep your light burning - going to keep it lit
Going to build your dream - brick by brick
Going to do what I can to carry on
To bring your children back to where they belong

I'm going to keep your light burning - till every light is lit
I'm going to build your dream brick by brick
Im going to keep your light burning - till every light is lit
I'm going to build your dream brick by brick

La,la,la
Track Name: All the Good Guys Die
Songs Lyrics

Looking through this broken window pane
Wondering if my world is going to end here
Please don't ask me why I'm not there
I'm just sitting here watching the ships sail past me
What makes you think that your so good
Cause you found a crowd that you can fit with
But you'd never stand in the place that giants stood
Cause everybody knows that
All the good guys die

But fools go round and round again
And I guess I must be a fool for trying
I don't want the things you think I should
I just want to try to live my life without lying
I see orphans and broken hearts
And salesmen selling photos of the fallen
This time I wonder who their goin to crusify
But don't let it bring you down
Cause everybody knows that
All the good guys die

And fools go round and round again
And everybody knows its just the way it goes my friend
The stoolies and the spies will spread their wings and fly
But all the good guys die

Chorus
Track Name: Too Hard To Please You
Don't want to be another one of your boys
Walk your dog or wind your toys
Don't want to work for you no more - I'm leaving
Get so upset and spill your martini
Say your cream puffs are not too creamy
Well this boy is leaving.

Sometime it gets just too hard to please you
I wonder where its all going to lead you

Well shovel your coal and swallow your steam
Work so hard it makes you mean
Churn your muscle and turn your cream to butter
Fill your bullets full of lead
Shoot your problems in the head
Whats dead is dean and won't disturb your supper
(Chorus)

Well grind your bones and grit your teeth
Slap your gravy on your beef
Shake your salt until its sweet and tasty
Jam your jelly through the door
Holler and scream for more
Say its for your dinosaur
Hes thirsty
(Chorus)
Track Name: Freedom Song
LYRICS

Some people say they dont believe a time will ever come
When soldiers put down all their guns and go home
But I believe that someday soon the tyrants all must fall
Their curtain and their wall come a tumblin down
No more need to hurt or bleed or suffer anymore
Nobobody wants a war - everybody want to be free
Everybody sing - La la la la
Oh Ya Everybody sing this song


Well one day al the prisoners tortured and condemned
Will walk out of their cells and go back home again
The cheated on betrayed upon and all the falsely tried
No more of them will die - justice shall be done
No more slaves no more kings no more battlefields
All the swords shall yield- justice shall be done
Everybody sing - La la la la
Everybody sing this song

No Buchenwald no Babi Yar no Hiroshima death
No man made to confess to crimes he never done
No terror tanks, blood money banks no cry of bitter tears
No more nazi fears no children forced to hide
The cannons fails the sirens wail be silenced by the sun
Alll misery be done a new world shall arise
Everybody sing - La la la la
Everybody sing this song
Track Name: Song for the Children
Songs Lyrics

This is a song for the children no one can deceive you
When they try to lie you can see in their eye
Don't let them mislead you

Though I'm not here to catch you
You must walk on your own - you will not fall
Come one little children - stand tall

This is a song for the children no one can bribe you
With candy and all kind of sweet things
That will never satisfy you

Chorus

This is a song for the children your eyes cannot be covered
When you hear the painfull cry of your brother - let it be your own pain
Don't be afriad of the thunder

Chorus

This is a song for the children your heart is pure and faithfull
Don't let your soul become tarnished
Give of yourself and learn to be gratefull

Chorus
Track Name: Bonus Track - Comforted
Im comforted by the way you are united against me
Im comforted by the way you accuse me
Im comforted cause I know it was written long ago
Every curse that you send will end up blessing me

Im comforted by the way you are united against me
Im comforted by the way you accuse me
Im comforted cause I know it was written long ago
You will fall into the very pit that you prepared for me

Ah, And it was written long ago
Ah, I wasn't really sure if it was so
Ah, But now you prove to me that its true, yes you do
And I'm comforted by the faith that you have brought me to

Im comforted by the seventy wolves that surround me
Im comforted by their growl and their howl at night
Im comforted cause I know if this is really happening
Then the morning too must surely be in sight

(Chorus)
Track Name: Change Will Come
Songs Lyrics

Change will come
Not by threats or fear of anyone
Not by force nor by battling the sun
But change will come

Change will come
Not by death who you defy with your gun
Not by the closest love of anyone
But change will come

Oh when your weary
When your tired of yourself
When your obsessions no longer give you pleasure
And you desire something else
Well you won't even have to lift your thumb
Change will come

Change will come
Not by the footsteps of someone
Not by strength or winning what cannot be won
But change will comet

Change will come
Not science or by prayers that you have done
Not by blaming yourself or everyone
But change will come


Chorus
Track Name: One Girl
One girl that I speak with
One I hardly know
One girl moves to fast for me
One girl moves to slow

One girl that I'm waiting for
One I have not met
One girl that I call upon
Whenever I'm upset

(Chorus)
But the one girl I'm thinking of
The one girl that I'm dreaming of
The one girl that I truly love - shes gone

Well there's one girl that I talk with
Two girls that I tease
Three girls that I fight with
And one I try to please

One girl makes me happy
Another girl makes me sad
One girl always tells me
I remind her of her Dad

(Chorus)
One girl keeps me company
One keeps me out late
One girl likes to see me
But only when I'm straight

One girl reads me stories
Another one tells me lies
One girl always thinks
She going to catch me by surprise

(Chorus)
