Round And Round


I've been on this journey, longer than I know
I've been so many different people
How could I know for sure


That I will not be beckoned anymore
 

Round and round
And round again
Well it's always the same old friends
That you would never let down
When there's no love to be found


I will not be beckoned anymore
I will not be beckoned


Round and round
And round again
Well It's always the same old friends
That you would never compromise
That'd never lead to your demise


I will not be beckoned anymore
I will not be beckoned

The Breath Of Time

 

On and on
On and on
All in time

Or the same but backwards:

All in time
All in time
On and on

Like A Gypsy

I was walking down a lonely road one day
When suddenly before my eyes
There was an apparition standing before me

Asking if he could come along for the ride
I said no
I'm doing just fine
I don't have to pay you any mind
You are stuck here
You will stay
And I will fight it off until this very day

Cause I won't let no devils
Dance with me
The greatest good is all that there can be
Yes I won't let no devils
Dance with me
The greatest good is all that there can be

I was walking down a Wheatland road one day
When suddenly before my eyes
There was an apparition standing before me
This time he was looking as real as real life
Looked me right in the eye and said hippies can go to hell
That's when I said that there was no hell
He said that's right
Went on his way
And I will fight it off until this very day

Cause I won't let no devils
Dance with me
The greatest good is all that there can be
Yes I won't let no devils
Dance with me
The greatest good is all that there can be

Well I suggest you think everybody's dirty
Cause you've been giving them all your spit shine
Spreading your DNA around like it's currency
But you can never buy back the time
So don't go waste your time chasing paper
Those illusions don't fulfill at all
Walking around like we're authorities
Really we're all just proles...

The Day's Ways

Here we are
Near or far
Falling in time, but still we climb
No matter how far

These days have their ways
As long as you pay
We'll still get by
As long as you try

Well now look away
Tell me what do you say
When you look around to find it's gone
It seems everything but you is moving on

These days have their ways
As long as you pay
We'll still get by
Just don't buy the lie

These days have their ways
As long as you pay
We'll still get by
Just don't buy the lie

Tell Me

 

Tell me when I am gone
Tell me that I don't belong
Tell me only cause I'm gone
Tell me cause I've got to carry on

Yeah we'll never find it out
And there never was any doubt
If only we hadn't lost our heads
We should've listened to what we said
But if we could go back to the day
We could make it all ok
But we can't
And we won't
So we don't

Yes I'm leaving and I won't turn back my head
Yes I'm gone I just think of those things you said
Well I'm back but it's only in your head
Yes I'm back cause you haven't let go instead

Yeah we'll never find it out
And there never was any doubt
If only we hadn't lost our heads
We should've listened to what we said
But if we could go back to the day
We could make it all ok
But we can't
And we won't
So we don't

Yes we can't
And we won't
So we don't

Yeah we'll never find it out
And there never was any doubt
If only we hadn't lost our heads
We should've listened to what we said
But if we could go back to the day
We could make it all ok
But we can't
And we won't
So we don't

The Only Way Out

I can give you dried flowers
And put a smile on your face
But as we all stand laughing
Can I help you change your fate
I can see it all before you
This life full of grace
But if you can't take the first step
Would you fall from your place

Is there no way out
Nothing is impossible

When you reach the peak of chaos
Will you see through the pain
Like a falling star that's burning
With an eternal cosmic flame
On a never ending journey
In this world of refrain
Where true love can guide you through it all
Until that's all that remains

It's the only way out
The only way out

Why Don't You

You know it hurts to say
I ever caused you any pain
But you know deep down in my heart
It's all the same

Why don't you forgive me
Tell me why
Won't you forgive me

You know it hurts to say
I made you change your mind
But you know these things can mend
If you give it time

Why won't you forgive me
Tell me why
Won't you forgive me

I can see the light come around the bend
Oh shining on for you and me my friends
So we can all shine all for better days
Oh so we can all shine on

Why won't you forgive me
Tell me why
Won't you forgive me

You know it hurts to say
I ever gave you the blues
But you know your emotions
Are something you can choose

Why won't you forgive me
Tell me why
Won't you forgive me

I can see the light come around the bend
Oh shining on for you and me my friends
So we can all shine all for better days
Oh so we can all shine on

Ignite The Light

So come
Show me good love tonight
Cause I've never found it here
Maybe
You can show me how to do it right
And I will chase away your tears
We can help each other find the light
I've been searching for years
But I won't fall for your insecurity
But to this fact you might be blind

Don't you tell me it's over
Before you finally walked away
I'm telling you I won't fall for deception
The greatest good will guide me to a better way

We gotta fight to ignite the light of the greatest good
It's all there can be
Fight to ignite the light of the greatest good
It's exactly what we need

So come
Give your love away for free
I swear it doesn't bother me
And maybe you'll give all your love away
But I don't have all day
We can help each other find the light
You know I found it in myself
But with you I have no fears

Don't you tell me it's over
Before you finally walked away
I'm telling you I won't fall for deception
The greatest good will guide me to a better way

We gotta fight to ignite the light of the greatest good
It's all there can be
Fight to ignite the light of the greatest good
It's exactly what we need

In This Tower Of Babel

Haven't lost my mind today
Haven't been on the brink
Haven't had no time for love
Or to even think

Rise above it all with selfless love
See past it all with the truth
I can see past your veil of illusions
The greatest good will be my proof

Well no matter how far you climb
It's just as far to fall
If you have no time for love
You missed the call

Rise above it all with selfless love
See past it all with the truth
I can see past that veil of illusions
The greatest good will be my proof

Trends

It's hideous
You're all oblivious
To the lies spreading round town
Your own friends getting you down
So quick to defend
With all your new trends
Looks so good you have to defend
With all your new clothes
And all your new woes
Got no friends so you might as well make a foe
You got to go
With everything you know
Because that's just your ego

Well
Never once stopping to look
It was only a trend
Never once stopping to look
It was only a trend
Never once stopping

Feel the rhythm feel the rhyme
Don't you know it's about time
Take a look around
And wait your turn in line
Watch it decay away
Nothing you can do or say
Nothing you can do
To make it all go away
Living long
Living strong
Tell me what is going on
With everything you thought could go wrong
That's Ok that's the way it's gonna stay
If you let it

Well
Never once stopping to look
It was only a trend
Never once stopping to look
It was only a trend
Never once stopping

Well
Never once stopping to look
It was only a trend
Never once stopping to look
It was only a trend
Never once stopping

The Fools Blues

As we grow up
Good lord we always dreamed
That we'd be better than anything before
Now that we are older
What's stopping us from being all that and more

Dream
Yes dream
Don't throw yourself away
Dream
Yes dream
Like you never had a chance
Dream
Yes dream
Like you never dreamed before
Dream

As we grow up
Good lord we always dreamed
That we'd be better than anything before
Now that we're here people
What's stopping us from being everything we ever dreamed

Dream
Yes dream
Don't throw yourself away
Dream
Yes dream
Like you never had a chance
Dream
Yes dream
Don't look
Dream

Striving For What Is Always Out Of Reach

(Ego Schmego)

Let your ego fly so very high
Oh let it soar
Pretend that nothing else can bother you
While you always look for more
Well one day you will surely find
All those things you kept in mind
Will kindly and coldly show you the door
Is life a bore

Throw down your anty it's your price to pay
If you don't have nothing to give
Well your soul should be OK
If you don't want to pay
Well that will be that day
That life comes back to get you
In oh the worst way

Let your ego out once again
Let it chase away your only friends
Now you got no one to contend with
Except for your silly trends
See it all through to the end
All those bad times you can never mend
Surely they never add up and bother you
So tell me what will you do

Throw down your anty it's your price to pay
If you don't have nothing to give
Well your soul should be OK
If you don't want to pay
Well that will be that day
That life comes back to get you
In oh the worst way

Throw down your anty it's your price to pay
If you don't have nothing to give
Well your soul should be OK
If you don't want to pay
Well that will be that day
That life comes back to get you
In oh the worst way

See Through The Lies

 

Even though you tell me
What's behind those eyes
I can see right through the
Clever disguise
Even if you could be
True to yourself
Well maybe
You wouldn't
Be so blue

Yeah if you could see all through the lies
See it through and not compromise
Well you don't have to wait for a better day
Yes that truth will come
No matter what you say

Even though you tell me
What's behind those lies
I can see right through the
fleeting compromise
Even if you could be
True to yourself
Well maybe
You wouldn't
Be so blue

Yeah if you could see all through the lies
See it through and not compromise
Well you don't have to wait for a better day
Yes that truth will come
No matter what you say
