Oh My Love 04:15
Going down to the waterfront Where the wild things hide and hunt It’s calm and beautiful Paradise up for spoil A big old hit with the gas and oil A tragedy to behold Oh My Love Now the suits they strut and stroll Asserting all their control On this wilderness We want growth right here right now Time to brand this cash cow This shits bigger than you Oh my love, pray to the god above Oh my love, help us save this place Now the soils black and blue Cancers deep inside of you But there’s no problems here Just another slash and burn From these lessons we won’t learn Fate unfolds before us Got what you wanted. Got what you need.
My Darling 03:46
Oh My Darling Oh how i’ve waited for you Let’s write these wrongs With the hands of time Let’s do better With this life of mine I’d give forever So fear leaves you be Lost in the warmth No need for memory Come on set ya free Come now walk with me I got you babe all terrors and trails I got you babe all pain and denial I could stare at you all day Don’t want you any other way It’s all warming up this asphalt we ride Chasing the mountains and chasing the tide
Roll On 04:32
Leave your baggage, upon the window sill Carry with you, nothing to hold you down Rest your head upon a travelling breeze She will carry you, she will carry you Offer up as air, hopes to breathe Worries pass you by and leave you peace What you meet might help your eyes to see Your mind’s belief Roll on, roll on, find your setting sun Roll on, roll on, won’t you find your only one Stars they let you know, that you’re still here Muddy boots will show you, where you been Tomorrow sun will guide you, where to go Go with the flow, go with the flow I got an itching, my soul is twitching, it’s time to go I been yawning, a new day dawning, let’s hit the road…
Interlude 00:08
Heal the haunting now Hold me down, hold me down Heavy old boots keep the thoughts going round Hold ya back, hold ya back Hanging onto trouble in the pocket of your old backpack Hanging onto trouble keeps the trouble keep on rolling Heal the haunting now Heal the haunting somehow Time to go, time to go Time to kick the habit keep ya lamp from burning low Time to meet your maker, set those demons free, time to call the preacher, it ends here with me…
Before Now 05:07
Before I knew or so they say I never lost but got my own way Before the melting glacial snow All those days seem so long ago Before our eyes opened up so wide Heard doubtful voices deep inside Before love left all her cruel marks And wisdom wound all my hopes dark Before loneliness squatted your halls And west moved east against your call Before bitterness claimed rightful place And hope lost all her sugar coated taste I will wait for you Before and now it’s the least I can do And now it’s here in the guilt blood red In my nervous veins long unfed And now it’s here jousting at my skin Facing up to facts that I couldn’t let you in I don’t want to grow old, not like this I just want to live free, free to exist
You turn steps, into strides Bleached black, my insides Ain’t no laws, in this town Don’t want no, laws around! You know I meant it, what I said You know I meant it, I’m not brain dead Flip a knife, cut the bastard out Sow my own stitches, without a doubt Since I was a boy, been drawn to the dust The wide expanses, my dreams filled up with lust Spent all night, lost in your deep waves Your purring voice, cosmic caves There’s beauty in the bones, ground to dust Abandoned places, in god we trust Who knew every little piece of you, would fall down, fall down…
