B i o g r a p h y
 (by Jason Ankeny)

Cat Powerís Chan (pronounced "Shawn") Marshall exists on a plane somewhat different than yours or mine, as anybody who has heard her sing knows. Her voice is unlike anyone youíve heard before, combining raw intimacy with a gruff, chalky confidence, and while any attempt to interpret her lyrics comes up short, their plain-spoken lines belie an otherwordly perspective on primal human emotions. She's abstract, but always honest and true. That awareness has caused a tidal wave of adulation for Chan from her giant fan base, one that has tripled with each new record released. Theyíll go anywhere with her, trusting that it always leads to a familiar place that will never seem the same. Recorded by Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam), You Are Free is Chanís first record of original material since 1998ís Moon Pix, and she's at the apex of her talents. She's fascinated with American music, as heard through her covers of songs by Dylan, Lou Reed, Moby Grape, and traditional folk on her last release, The Covers Record, and has absorbed its history into her own. Broken down to their essentials, songs like "Good Woman," "Fool" and "Speak For Me" could have been written sixty years ago on a rural Mississippi back porch, but Chan ably personalizes the traditional so it sounds handmade for the modern day. You Are Free represents a breathing history of music as seen through the eyes of a skilled musician on her way to becoming a national heirloom.

Dear Sir

3 times

I've seen you a couple of times
Guess I've seen you three times
Walking circles around me
When you stand in front of my eyes
I'll make sure I'll look
I'll make sure I'll look
I'll make sure I'll look
Away
Away, away
Away
She like a little Chinese
She is Chinese
Maybe it would be nicer if I said Japanese
She comes around you and me
And when you stand in front of my eyes
I will look
I will look
I will look
Away, away, away
Away, away, away
She looks in distress
She looks impressive
When she is dancing her moon dance on me
Roll, roll, roll away, away, away, away

*** Thanx a lot to Britney who updated this one ***

Rockets

Where do the dreams of babies go
'Cause you know they're all so good
And they're also gone so fast
Keep all the guns at home
Help keep your momma safe
'Cause you know she pretty good too
Where is the night so warm and so strange
That no one is afraid
Of themselves
Here, pick up, dig, dig out those weeds
Out of your happy go lucky fields
Of such predictive thinking
Where do the rockets find planets
Where do the rockets find planets
Where do the rockets find planets
Where are the dreams of the babies going
'Cause you know they're all gone fast
Take, take as much as you can
'Cause you know it's going so fast
And you know it's so good
Where are the many mountains so brave
That they do not explode over everyone
Pick, pick up, dig, dig out those weeds
Out of your happy go lucky fields
Of such predictive thinking
Where do the rockets find planets
Where do the rockets find planets
Keep your guns at home
Keep your guns at home
Help keep your momma safe
You know she's all good too
She's pretty good
Where are all the dreams of babies going
'Cause you know they're all good

Itchyhead

There's a baby
With an itchy head
Pour butter on it
I'll take a knife so I can
Take a weight off
Umm
I'm sixty five
Nobody in my family knows I'm alive
Hey little girl
I wanna cut your hair off
Hey little girl
So I can
Pour butter on it
So I can take a bite
And I will
I'm ninety nine
And I'm in jail
I wish I could have a million kids
A million girls
I would cut their hair off
And I would
Pour butter on them
So I can take knife
With my knife
I could pour
Butter on them
One, two, three, four

*** Thanx a lot to Aaron for this one ***

Yesterday is Here

( Tom Waits )

If you want
Money in your pocket
A top hat on your head
A hot meal on your table
And a blanket on your bed
I'm goin' to New York City
And I'm leaving on a train
If you want stay behind, wait until
I come back again
Because all our dreams come true
All our dreams come true
One, two, three, four
Today's grey skies
And tomorrow
And tomorrow
Is tears
The moon is up before me
The moon is shining bright
I want you to remember
As I disappear tonight
Today's grey skies
And tomorrow
And tomorrow
And tomorrow

*** Thanx a lot to Justine who corrected this one ***

The Sleepwalker

I can hear voices in the water
Curling up like smoke rings through the weeds
I have to take some time to relocate that house of mine
I think I must lost it in the river
They see things so different
To green eyes they give nothing away
Do you think now at last
You can tell me
No you won't give away
Crush snow on my face
Feels like burning
And the birds are black things singing in a tree
If I got myself a gun
Then I could shoot down everyone
Maybe I've just invented some religion
I saw a father dancing with his daughter
And the music singing softly on the breeze
I can't see or hear salvation anywhere
I think I'll wait here 'til he comes, come down the river (?)
I think I'll wait here 'til he comes, come down the river
You've heard all this before
Already I know
I know, so I won't say anymore

Mr Gallo

Oh, Mr Gallo, what a good friend
We've always been inane
Oh, Mr Gallo, what a good friend
Closer I've ever had
Oh, Chan, what a woman you've become
Can I say I never thought you'd look me in the eyes
Oh, and what a lover you've become
Can I say I always thought you were a liar
Oh, you say
What a laugh you had
Can I say I never thought I ever had anything funny
Oh, and what a charmer you've become Mr Gallo
Hope you're gonna hate it

Great Expectations

I am like powder
I am like relaxation
I am the snow
I am the snow
I am the snow

I dig in this ocean
And I try to fill it with gold
Fill it to the top
Fill it to the top
Fill it to the top
Do you look for hope in other people's eyes
Well that may be your worst redemption
Do you feed and clothe yourself
Well that may be your best defense

I am from the moon
I am from the moon
I am from the moon
So they say
So they say
Facing, confronting, branding each other
We were made through one another

Great expectations
Great expectations
So they say
So they say
So they say
I am the snow
I am the snow
I happen to be the snow

Headlights

Last thing I remember
Last thing I remember
Last thing I remember
Somebody was laughing in my ear
Last thing I remember
The sun was coming up
Last thing I remember
Last thing I remember
Hey the headlights are getting too
Close to me
Hey the headlights are cutting me
I can see
Somewhere above me
I can see
My friend weeping
My friend singing over me
Lifting her arms up to the sky
Lifting her arms up to the sky
....
Somewhere above me
I can hear
Like birds singing
Or are they weeping

Get up around eight
Get up around eight
Get up around eight
Get up around eight
Let's make some coffee
And get real stoned
Hey let's play a record or two
A record or two
A record or two
A record or two
Hey the headlights are getting too
Close to me
Hey the headlights are cutting me
And I can see i'm alone
It's cold as hell
It's cold as hell
It's cold as hell
It's cold as hell
It's cold as hell

Enough


My intuition said it was
My intuition said it was fair
Only you should know there's
Not enough to go around

Here they go again
I can see 'em
As they try they try to take it out on me
Here they go again I can
Watch closer now
I can watch closer now

They can't find enough
To take enough from me
They can't find enough
To take enough from me
Guess I go down

Said it wasn't but I guess it was
Say it wasn't but I guess it is

Here they go again
I can, try, try

My intuition knocked again fair
Only you should know by now there's
Not enough to go around

But I never go that way
The other half of me says I should
Throw it down the drain
Throw it down the drain

They can't find enough
To take enough from me
They can't find enough
To take enough from me

I've seen the hordes of whores
Looking down that drain
Of yours
Here they go as they try


** Thanx a lot to Jill who corrected some of my mistakes **

We All Die

Here you go
Sayin' that she's ill
Here you go
Marriage and kids and
Drug addiction
All the lies aside
I believe I am the
Luckiest person alive
Hell we all die
Sometimes
Hell we all try
Somewhere
Money always sees
Money always draws the lines
Hope you can see
Through the beggars and the pleaders
Do you happen to know
Where I am from
I'm lost in this
So far from home
Far from home
Do you happen to know
Where I am from
I'm lost
Far from mum
All the lies aside
I believe I am the
Luckiest person alive
Hell we all die
Sometimes
Hell we all try
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere
Stand on my knees
So I can see yours
Standing on my hands
So I can find my way home
Standing on my head

Great Expectations

I am like powder, I am like relaxation
I am the snow, I am the snow, I am the snow

I live in a desert
And I let the wind make love to me
I dig in this ocean and i try to fill it with gold
Fill it to the top, fill it to the top, fill it to the top
Do you look for hope in other people's eyes
Well that may be your worst redemption

Do you feed and clothe yourself
Well that may be your best defense

I am from the moon
I am from the moon
I am from the moon

So they say
So they say
So they say

Facing, confronting, branding each other
We were made through one another

Great expectations
Great expectations
Great expectations

So they say
So they say
So they say

I am the snow
I am the snow
I am the snow

Top Expert

In the magnetic field I see
Crucifixes and expectancy I feel
So safe
Foot by foot
I feel like I'm
Being cast off
I feel so
Ashamed
Top expert on the supernatural
Tells me how to
Catch a ghost in a jar
 
Ten years richer with my magnetic shield
I feel
Crucified
Backwards
Not too close
And I still feel so
Safe
Being overly
But feel like I'm passing
I winning
I winning
And I still feel so
Ashamed

Top expert on the supernatural
Tells you how to make it in the shade
Hey you made it in the shade
Hope you don't hate it
In the shade
Like a ghost
In a jar

Ice Water

Like I heard her
Backwards saying
I can take one thousand showers
And never be clean
Of course she lied away
She's ten times heavier
Stronger than even the greatest ever was (?)
His goddamned name
You know what I mean
Who doesn't lie
You know what I mean
If I'm ever in doubt of you (?)
Like you don't know
I am so, angry
I am so, at ease
I feel just like
A secret big disease
I think you need
Ice water
But the only thing that
You really hate
Is all its emptiness
I'll swim
And I will drink myself to death
If I'm ever in doubt of you
Like you don't know

Still in Love

( Hank Williams )

Today I passed you on the street
And my heart fell at your feet
I can't help it if I'm still in love with you

Someone else stood by your side
She looked so satisfied
I can't help it
I'm still in love with you

A picture from the past came slowly stealin'
As I brushed your arm and walked so close to you
Then suddenly I got that old-time feelin'
I can't help it
I am still in love with you

It hurts to know another's lips will kiss you
And hold you just the way I used to do
Oh heaven only knows how much I miss you
I can't help it
I'm still in love with you

Rockets

Where do the dreams of babies go
'Cause you know they're all so good
And they're also gone so fast

Keep all your guns at home
Help keep your momma safe
'Cause you know she's pretty good too

Where is the night so warm and so strange
That no one is afraid of themselves
Pick, pick up, dig, dig out those weeds
Out of your happy-go-lucky fields of such polluted thinking

Where do the rockets find planets
Where do the rockets find planets
Where do the rockets find planets
Where are the dreams of the babies going
'Cause you know they're all going fast
Take, take as much as you can
'Cause you know it's going so fast
You know it's so good.

Where are the many mountains so brave
That they do not explode over everyone
Pick, pick up, dig, dig out those weeds
Out of your happy-go-lucky field
Of such polluted thinking

Where do the rockets find planets
Where do the rockets find planets

Keep your guns at home
Keep your guns at home
Help keep your momma safe
You know she's all good too
She's pretty good

Where are the dreams of babies going
'Cause you know they're all good

Faces

Looking out across the next few days
I can see, nothing
Looking out across the next few years
I see, they're gonna go by fast

Looking out across the next few days
I can see smoke's gonna clear slowly
Looking out across the next few days
I can see, they're gonna go by fast

They're gonna go by
Blindfold me
So I won't hear a thing
To bat me back
So I won't notice I'm breathing
I'm not made of successful things
I'm not made of successful things
I'm not made of success
I've got what it takes
I've got what it takes
To rest
To rest
To rest
But I'm still around
Looking across the faces I've know
I can see
Nothing
Looking out across my family members
I know they miss me
I know they must miss me
Never had a lot of fun
Better things to do around the house
Never had a lot of fun
Better things to do without
Blindfold me
So I won't hear a thing
To bat me back
So I won't notice I'm breathing
I'm not made of successful things

Wealthy Man

Oh I see, sunny days
Oh I go that far
And when the night is over
Will you tell me that you've always been thinking of me

Indirectly you say to me the hand of a night is not a hand for me
That's the most sad I've ever heard from another man
A wealthy man
That's the most sad I've ever heard from another man
A wealthy man

Oh I still see sunny days
Oh I go that far
Oh and when the night is dragging on
Maybe I will dream that you will tell me
You 've always been thinking of me

Indirectly you say to me
The hand is not a hand for me
Indirectly you say again the hand of
The night is not
A hand for me

That's the most thad i've ever heard
From another man
A wealthy man
That's the most thad i've ever heard
From another man
A wealthy man

Not What You Want

I am not what you want
There's no telling how long
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long
I've checked
I've checked to find
I've checked
I've checked to find
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long
We'll be in that room
Be in that room
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I've checked
I've checked to find
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
I am not what you want
There's no eyes in your head
I'll check
I'll check tonight
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
I am not what you want
There's no eyes in your head
In your head
At least I cannot see them
In your head
I'm not what you want
I'll get
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Tonight
I'm not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
Be here
At least I cannot see them

What Would the Community Think

*** Thanx a lot to Maya who updated these lyrics ***

In This Hole

In this hole that we fixed
We get further and further and further
From what we must do

I saw you asleep beside a hole
Your skull inside a hole
Your eyes blackened by the sound
And the thought of God

Where should I hang my head
Where would you like for me
To hang my head

One absence of truth
The one horrible thing I saw
What you truly wanted to become
And who you thought I was
The fall, the fall
Afraid, the blood
Runs deeper than the grave
It goes all the way down those tracks
Everybody bow your head
For the greatest inspiration
A complete contradiction
Of ways

In this hole that we have fixed
We get further and further
From what we must do
I know this, I know this
You know this, you know this

In this hole that we have fixed
We get further and further and further
From what we must do

I saw you outside that wall
Your skull outside that wall
Your eyes christened by the sound
And the light of God


Good Clean Fun

After this there will be no one
After this there will be no one
After this there will be no one
After this there will be heads on different bodies
After this there will be no more
Beautifull dresses
After this there will be fast cast

After this there will be no one
After this there will be no one
After this there will be no one
After this there will be no more good clean fun

I forgive you for the rest
Even the whole time I was tested
Nobody does better, baby you're the best

After this there will be no one
After this there will be so many good ones

After this there will be less interest
After this there will be no one
No one, no one.

Hey I'm really down on my luck
Hey can I have something from you
It seems I have nothing to give
It seems you have nothing to give

After this there will be no one
After this there will be no one
After this there will be no one
After this there will be no more good clean fun

I forgive you for the rest
Even the whole time I was tested
Nobody does it better, baby you're the best


What Would the Community Think

My God what would the community think
You are so beautiful, you are so beautiful

All the things that people do in winter
They all melt down in summer
Things I never should say
On a very hot day

Been crying in my eyes

Vacation, vacation, vacation, vacation...

My God what would the community think
You are so beautiful, you are so beautiful

Nude As the News

I still have a flame gun
For the cute cute cute ones

And I saw your hand
With a loose grip
On a tight ship

I still have a flame gun
For the cute ones
To burn out all your tricks
And I saw your hand
With a loose grip
On a very tight ship

And I know
That in the cold light
There's a very big man
There's a very big man
Leading us into
Temptation

Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me
Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me

And he's related to you
He's related to you
He is waiting to meet you

He's related to you
He's related to you
He is dying to meet you

Backhand, role reversal
Where is someone
Backhand, reversable roles
I know there's someone

I still have a flame gun
For the cute ones
To burn out all your tricks
And I saw your hand
With a loose grip
On such a tight ship

And I know that in the cold light
Is a very big man
Leading us into
Temptation

Jackson, Jesse, I've got a son in me
Jackson, Jesse, I've got the son in me

And he's related to you
He's related to you
He is waiting to meet you

He's related to you
He's related to you
He is dying to meet you

He's related to you, he's related to you
He's related to you, he's nude as the news

Nude as the news, nude as the news, nude as the news
All over, all over, all over, all over, all over, all over, all over you

** Thanx to Trygve who helped me with this one **

They Tell Me

They tell me what they do,
I don't know what they're talking about,
They tell me what they do,
I don't understand what they're talking about,
They're talking about it.

I did not start this conversation,
I don't intend to keep talking about it,
They tell me about it.

Maybe if i pray to the lord above,
I'll get some sleep,
But the lord don't give a shit about me.

They tell me what they do,
How can I help it, how can I help it,
I sure can't shut them up.

Taking People

Who, who never showed you,
About the easy way,
Whose robes did they trade you,
For such an easy life

Who, who never showed you,
About the easy way,
Who, who never told you,
About the perfect life,
Guess it's some kind of,
Some guarantee,
You'll never see.

If I was a photographer,
Picture taking,
Beautiful people,
I guess I'd make a mistake,
'Cause I'd probably take a,
Picture of you.

Who, who never showed you,
About the easy way.

And whose robes did they trade you,
For such a perfect life,
That's such a guarantee.

It leaves some certain sickness,
You'll never know,
Inside of me

That's all I have.

The Fate of the Human Carbine

( Peter Jeffries )


Thinks of money all the time
Doing it to annoy her
She's on his conscience day and night
So he acts like her employer

They all come and peep through a hole in the wall
Keep the bastards guessing

He likes to take the long way home
It's another fine decision
From six to seven he'll be all alone
So he turns on televison
Doesn't even notice as the hours roll by
Gets lost inside the screen
Watches the film about the evening sky
It was someone else's dream

Oh come and peep through a hole
Keep the bastards guessing
All come and peep through a hole in the wall
Just to watch his heart undressing
They all come and peep through a hole in the wall
Because you look so impressive

King Rides By

If time had a place,
And space for your past.

Like a little novel,
I wanted to read again and again,
Would I be in your novel,
Would I begin and end in it?

If I had a place,
And space for your little boy eyes,
Could you really believe,
I certainly dare you,
I do not want to scare you,
Anymore.

Oh what a fuss when the king rides by,
Oh what a fuss when the king rides,
Straight through my heart,
Straight through my life.

I need your love more than you'd ever know.

If I kissed and touched your hand,
A million things I will never understand,
Oh what a fuss when the king trades in,
Oh what a fuss when the king trades.

Oh love, my love, for someone else's hand,
Needing love more than you'll ever know.

You don't miss your water,
You don't miss your water,
'Till your well is gone.

Bathysphere

( Smog )

When I was seven I told my mother,
To take me to the bay and put me on a ship.

Silver swordfish electric,
I can feel a dream down here.

If the water should cut my mind,
If the water should cut my life,
If the water should cut my mind,
Set me free,
I don't care,
I want to live in a bathysphere.

When I was seven my father said to me,
"But you can't swim."
And I've never dreamed of the sea again.

If the water should cut my life,
If the water should cut my line,
If the water should cut my mind,
Set me free,
I don't care,
I want to live in a bathysphere.

Water & Air

I was dragged out by the shore man,
A very poor man,
A very nice man,
A family man.

My lover drifted down the river,
Below the dark water,
The devil all around.

Yesterday on the street,
Someone called out your name,
Someone thought that you were me,
Last night there was a party,
I could not go,
I walked around it,
I thought about it,
All night long,
Today there is a newspaper,
About you and me,
And the day we were married,
The same day.

The same day they fell in love,
The same day they died in love.

I did not want you to die alone,
Rusty river run down,
Run, run as fast as you can, oh run,
Rusty river run ragged,
And drag my lover's self back to me,
I'll meet him there,
Water and air.

Oh to be at the bottom of a river,
Below the dark water,
The devil all around,
The devil all around.

Enough

Intuition said it was fair
Only you should know there's
Not enough to go around

Here they come again
I can watch
As they try they try to take it out
Here they come again I can
Watch closer now
I can watch closer now

They can't find enough
To take enough from me
They can't find enough
To take enough from me

I've seen the hordes of whores
I've seen the hordes of whores
Looking down that drain of yours

Cartoon blue jay
Cartoon black bay too

Cartoon blue jay
Cartoon black bay too

Intuition knocked again fair
Only you should know by now there's
Not enough to go around

But I never go that way
Other half of me says I should
Other half of me says I should
Other half of me says I should


** Thanx a lot to Jill who corrected some of my mistakes **

The Coat is Always on

Mother don't sit
Mother don't stand
Mother don't send me

Smoking grass, going to the movie
The ambulance is after you too
Promise we're gonna go to New York City
Sorry about the fight in front of you
Angry women said 'motherfucker' on tv
Sister come and lay your head on me,
I can see you haven't had any sleep in a long time.
 

That baby's gonna be so easy on me
Never see his smile
Never see his face

Smoking grass go into the movie
The ambulance is after you too
Promise we're gonna go to New York City
Sorry about the fight in front of you
Anchor woman said 'motherfucker' on tv

Father said he was gonna give me something
He gave me hate

Mother don't sit
Mother don't stand
Mother don't send me
 
The coat is always on
Because it's always cold
He would always laugh and she wants to hear it
A lot of times we would just starve
They recognize the color of the smear
Maybe I'll listen and you can read my mind
I'm sorry please don't be mad
Brother can't even speak
He's got a tongue and two legs to walk on and he can leave
Brother is old and grey
Brother is old and grey
Brother is old and grey
And he's only
He's only seventeen

We recognize the color of the smear
Maybe we will all listen when we are all under
Maybe we will all listen when we are all under


Father said he was gonna give me something
He gave me hate

Mother don't sit
Mother don't stand
Mother please don't send me

Anchor woman said motherfucker on tv
Maybe I'll listen and you can read my mind
I'm sorry please don't be mad

American Flag

My friend
Sits at the drum
His magic hand
Feels nothing but
Time
Nothing but time

My old friend
Sits at the drum
His magic mind
Doesn't feel anything
American Flag is behind
If I could stand
To be less difficult

My new friend
Plays drums all the time
Her magic heart
Feels everything
She plays the difficult parts and I play
Difficult

She goes shoop shoop eh doop shoop eh doop
Shoop eh doop eh doop eh doop
We go shoop shoop eh doop shoop eh doop shoop eh
Doop eh doop

If I could stand
To be less difficult

He Turns Down

Have you ever seen the face
You know the one I'm talking about
Have you ever been to that place
You know I'm not supposed to say

Have you ever seen the face
You know the one I'm talking about
Have you ever been to that place
You know the one I'm not supposed to say

Holding on for something
Have you ever held on?
Holding on for someone
Feels like holding on too long
Have you ever held on?

It's not me I am pretending
I'm not saved he turned me down
He turns down

It is so nice to meet you
Who's going to look out for you
It's not me, I am pretending
I'm not saved he turned me down
He turns down

No Sense

Do you remember
Do you remember
That night in context
Making up shit
Like we were animals

We made no sense
No sense
We had no sex

Can you see, can you see, can you see
Can you see, can you see, can you see
The moon is so hollow
What's the use
When I can see right through you
What's the use

All the hearts that touch your cheek
How they jump they move they embarrass
All the hearts that touch your cheek
How they jump they move they embarrass
They make no sense, no sense, no sense
No sense, we had no sex

Say

Learn to say the same thing
Let us hold fast to sayin' the same thing
I hope all is well with you
I wish the best for you
When no one is around love will always love you

Learn to say the same thing
What defeats people is a double confession
One time they will confess one thing
And the next they will confess something else
Talk to them they will say

Learn to say the same thing
Let us hold fast to saying the same thing
Never give up no never give up
If you're looking for something easy
You might as well give it up
Never give up no never give up
If you're looking for something easy
You might as well give it up

One time they will confess one thing
And the next they will confess the next
Talk to them they will say

Learn to say the same thing
Let us hold fast to saying the same thing

Metal Heart

Losing the star without a sky
Losing the reasons why
You're losing the calling that you've been faking
And I'm not kidding

It's damned if you don't and it's damned if you do
Be true 'cause they'll lock you up in a sad sad zoo
Oh hidy hidy hidy what cha tryin to prove
By hidy hidy hiding you're not worth a thing

Sew your fortunes on a string
And hold them up to light
Blue smoke will take
A very violent flight
And you will be changed
And everything
And you will be in a very sad sad zoo.

I once was lost but now I'm found was blind
But now I see you
How selfish of you to believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming

Metal heart you're not hiding
Metal heart you're not worth a thing

Metal heart you're not hiding
Metal heart you're not worth a thing


Back of Your Head

Big monster
Big monster lover
A bigger pusher over
Stands alone in most walks of life
Walks alone in most walks in life

See you looking through me
Like you've unzipped the zipper
You hold the big picture so well
Can't you see that we're going to hell?

Couldn't park that fucking car
Couldn't part from you
Saw the back of your sweet mother's head
Now I know that she thinks I am dead

Burnt flavor you hold the big picture so well
Can't you see that we're going to hell

Big monster lover
A bigger pusher over
Stands alone in most walks of life
Walks alone in most walks in life

Moonshiner

( Traditional )

I've been a moonshiner
For seventeen long years
I spent all my money on whisky and beer

I go to some hollow
And set up my holy holy still
If drinking do not kill me
Then I don't know what will

I go to some bar room
And drink with my friends
If women and men would come to follow
To see what I might spend
God bless them handsome men
I wish they was mine

They're breath is as sweet as
The dew on the holy holy vine

You're already in hell, you're already in hell
I wish we could go to hell

When the bottle gets empty
Then life ain't worth a damn

You May Know Him

Oh Lord heaven is the name that you sent me
Oh Lord heaven is the name that you gave him
And then he came to life and he lived
All others strange because who could of thought
That you meant so much to me

Oh Lord heaven is the name that you gave him
Surprised by the rise in sin you came through over and over again
Lord heaven is the place that you sent him

And you may know him
And you may know him only you
Lord i've never doubted for an instant
If we did what you say
And we do it everyday
If we did what you say
And we do it everyday

Lord if heaven is the place he believed in it's all you can do
Oh Lord heaven is the name that you sent me
Oh Lord surprised by the rise in sin you came through
You came through

Colors & the Kids

It must be the colors
And the kids
That keep me alive
'Cause the music is boring me to death

It must just be the colors
And the kids that keep me alive
'Cause I wanna go right away
To a January night
I built a shack with an old friend
He was someone I could learn from
Someone I could become

Will you meet me down
On a sandy beach?
We can roll up our jeans
So the tide won't get us below the knees

Yellow hair
You are a funny bear
Yellow hair
You are such a funny bear
Slender fingers
Would hold me slender limbs would hold me
And you could say my name
Like you knew my name

I could stay here
Become someone different
I could stay here
Become someone better

It's so hard to go in the city
'Cause you wanna say hello to everybody
It's so hard to go into the city
'Cause you wanna say hey I love you to everybody
When we were teenagers we wanted to be the sky
Now all we wanna do is go to red places
And try to stay outta hell

It must be the colors
And the kids
That keep me alive
'Cause the music is boring me to death

It must just be the colors
And it must just be the kids
That keep me alive on this January night.

Yellow hair
You are a funny bear
Yellow hair
You are such a funny bear


Cross Bones Style

Oh how time flies
With crystal clear eyes
And cold as coal
When you're ending with diamond eyes

Oh come child
In a crossbones style
Oh come child
Come and rescue me
'Cause you have seen some
Unbelievable things

Hater I have your diamonds and still
'Cause you have seen some unbelievable things
Hater I have your diamonds

Oh come child
In a crossbones style
Oh come child
Come rescue me
'Cause you have seen some
Unbelievable things

Hater I have your diamonds and still
So still

Oh how time flies
With crystal clear eyes
And cold as coal
When you're ending with diamond eyes

Oh come child
In a crossbones style
Oh come child
Come and rescue me
'Cause you have seen some
Unbelievable things

Peking Saint

In peking
There is a son who
Is much greater
Than you want to be

Carnival arms have
A medical wonder
Who would've guessed that
It was not a real body part

In peking
There is a mother
Who is laden
With who she has to be

Carnival arms have
A medical wonder
Who would've guessed that
It was not a real body part

In peking there is someone who
Is who they should exactly be

The Covers Record

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

( The Rolling Stones, "Out of Our Heads" LP )

When I'm drivin' in my car
And the man come on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information
Tryin' mess my imagination

When I'm watchin' my TV
And a man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me

When I'm ridin' around the globe
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
And I'm tryin' to make some boy
Baby, baby, baby, come back
'Cause you see I'm on a losing streak

When I'm ridin' a round the globe
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that
And I'm tryin'
And I'm tryin'

Kingsport Town

( Bob Dylan, "The Bootleg Series" Box Set )

The winter wind
Is blowing so strong
My hands have got
No gloves

Wish to my sole
That I could have
The boy I'm dreaming of

Don't you remember me, babe
I remember you quite well
Caused me to leave
All of New York town
With a high sheriff on my tail

A high sheriff on my tail, boys,
High sheriff on my trail.

All because I've fallen for
A curly headed dark-eyed boy

Who's gonna stroke
Your coal black hair
And your sandy colored skin?
Who's gonna walk you side by side
And tell you everything is alright?

Who's gonna look
You straight in the eye
And hold your bad luck hand?

Who's gonna walk you?
Who's gonna talk to you
And who's gonna be your woman?

The winter wind
Is blowing so strong
My hands have got
No gloves

Don't you remember me, babe?
I remember you quite well

Troubled Waters

( Michael Hurley, "Armchair Boogie" LP )

I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn
Sometimes
It's like being in chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In shame
When people see me
They scandalize my name
I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming 'round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn
Sometimes it's like
Being in chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In shame
When people see me
They scandalize my name
I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming 'round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be

*** Thanx a lot to Amy who corrected a mistake ***

Naked if I Want To

( Moby Grape, "Moby Grape" LP )

Would you let me walk down your street
Naked if I want to?
Can I fire fireworks on the fourth of every single July?
Can I buy an amplifier, oh, on time?
My sweet time

Well I ain't got no money
I will pay this time
And I ain't got no money
But I will pay you before I die

And would you let me walk down your street
Naked if I want to?
Can I fire fireworks on the fourth of every single July?
Can I buy an aeroplane while i'm high in all the sky?
And I got no mercy
I will pay this time
And I got no mercy
I will pay you before I die

Sweedeedee

( Michael Hurley, "Armchair Boogie" LP )

You wash them clothes
Swee dee dee
And hang 'em on the line
I can see by the way
You wash them clothes
Your cookin' must be fine
I'm with you in the morning
'Til the break of day
And I know everybody
Has a little hard luck
Sometimes
And I know lately
I've been havin' mine
We used to live
In a fleabag apartment
You know the kind
And he come home and he'd say to me
"We gotta leave, leave, leave the city"
You wash them clothes
Swee dee dee
And hang 'em on the line
I can see by the way you wash them clothes
Your cookin' must be fine
I'm with you in the morning
Untill the break of day
I know everybody
Has a little hard luck
Sometimes
I know lately
I've been havin' mine.

In This Hole

( Cat Power, "What Would the Community Think?" LP )

In this hole we have fixed
We get further and further and further
Further from the world
We must do
We must do

I saw you asleep beside a wall
Your skull inside the wall
Your mind blackened by
All the thought of God

One absence of truth
One horrible thing you saw
What you truly wanted to become
And who you thought I was
Who you thought I was

In this hole we have fixed
We get further and further
Further from the world
We must do
We must do

I saw you outside that wall
The skull outside that wall
Your mind finally free
And all the thoughts you thought
And all the thought of God

I Found a Reason

( Velvet Underground, "Loaded" LP )

Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before

And you'd better come come, come come to me
Better come come, come come to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come

Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better that what came before

And you'd better run run, run run to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come, come come, come come to me
You'd better run

Wild Is the Wind

( Nina Simone, "Wild is the Wind" LP )

Love me, love me
Say you do

Let me fly away
With you

We're creatures of the wind
Wild is the wind

Give me more than one caress
To satisfy this hungryness
We're creatures of the wind
Wild is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You kiss me
With your kiss my life begins

Like a leaf clings to a tree
Baby please cling to me
We're creatures of the wind
Wild is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
And you kiss me
With your kiss my life begins

Love me, love me
Say you do

Let me fly away
With you

Red Apples

( Smog, "Red Apple Falls" LP )

I went down to the river
To meet the widow
She gave me an apple
And it was red

I slept in her black arms
For a century
She wanted nothing in return
I gave her nothing in return

The ghost of her husband
Beautiful as a horse
Pulled up an apple cart
Full of millions of red apples for us
Full of millions of red apples for us

I went down to the river
To meet the widow
She gave me an apple
And it was red

I slept in her black arms
For a century
She wanted nothing in return
I gave her nothing in return

I went down to the river
To meet the widow

Paths of Victory

( Bob Dylan, outtake from "The Times They Are A-Changin'" Sessions )

The trail is dark and dusty
The road is kinda rough
But the clearer road up yonder
With the cinders on the side.

Trails of troubles
And your roads of battle,
They lead paths of victory
We shall walk

I walked down to the valley
Turned my head up high.
Seen that silver linin'
That was hangin' in the sky

Trails of troubles
And your roads of battle,
They lead paths of victory
We shall walk

The mountain was a movin'
The hummin' of its wheels,
Told me of the new day
it was coming across the fields

Trails of troubles
And your roads of battle,
They lead paths of victory
We shall walk

The gravel road is bumpy,
It's a hard old road to ride,
But the good road is a-waitin'
And the boys it ain't far off.

Trails of troubles
And your roads of battle,
They lead paths of victory
We shall walk

Salty Dog

( Traditional / Also on Papa Charlie Jackson "Complete Chronological Recordings, Vol. 1 (1924-1926)" )

Salty dog, salty dog
I don't wanna be your Annie doll
Honey let me be your salty dog
Candyman

Two old maids
Sittin' in the sand
One were a she
The other were a man
Salty dog
Candyman

Worst day I ever had in my life
My best friend caught him kissin his wife
Salty dog
Candyman

Salty dog, salty dog
I don't wanna be your Annie doll
Honey let me be your salty dog
Candyman

Sea of Love

( Phil Phillips & the Twilights )

Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

Do you remember
When we met?
That's the day
I knew you were my pet

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

Come with me
My love
To the sea
The sea of love

I wanna tell you
How much
I love you

You are Free

I Don't Blame You

Last time I saw you, you were on stage
Your hair was wild, your eyes were bright
And you were in a rage

You were swinging your guitar around
Cause they wanted to hear that sound
But you didnít want to play
And I donít blame you

I don't blame you

Been around the world, in many situations
Been inside many heads in different positions
But you never wanted them that way
What a cruel price you thought
That you had to pay them back
For all that shit on stage

But it never made sense to them anyway,
Could you imagine when they turned their backs
They were only scratching their heads
'Cause you simply deserve the best
And I donít blame you

They said you were the best
But then they were only kids
Then you would recall the deadly houses you grew up in
Just because they knew your name
Doesnít mean they know from where you came
What a sad trick you thought that you had to play
But I donít blame you

They never owned it
And you never owed it to them anyway

I donít blame you

Speak for Me

Pick us up weíre all by ourselves
The great big howling is about to begin
A thousand miles after from where it all begins

Old world, the whole world is

Going on and on (forfeit the shape to fit)
The backhand to a touch is moving on again (forfeit the shape to fit)
Going on and on (forfeit the shape to fit) 

Whatís next?
Iím out of time
Losing my touch I can't feel
Speak for me, do you see the same signs
Do you know how to read between the lines
All in all, it's all or none
All for one, what you want

Pick us out of a line up
Stranded and strange just as innocent as kids
The found are leaving and they're trying to forget.
The old world, the whole world is

Going on and on (forfeit the shape to fit)
A backhand to the touch is moving on again (forfeit the shape to fit)
Going on and on (forfeit the shape to fit)

Whatís next, Iím out of time
Losing my touch I can't feel
Speak for me; do you see the same signs
Do you know how to read between the lines
All in all, it's all or none, all for one.
What you want

The Werewolf Song

( Michael Hurley Cover )

Oh the werewolf, oh the werewolf
Comes stepping along
He donít even break the branches where heís gone
Once I saw him in the moonlight, when the bats were a flying
I saw the werewolf, and the werewolf was crying

Cryiní nobody knows, nobody knows, body knows
How I loved the man, as I teared off his clothes
Cryiní nobody know, nobody knows my pain
When I see that itís risen; that full moon again

For the werewolf, for the werewolf, have sympathy
For the werewolf, somebody like you and me
And only he goes to me, man this little flute I play
All through the night, until the light of day, and we are doomed to play

For the werewolf, for the werewolf, has sympathy
For the werewolf, somebody like you and me

Fool

Apartment in New York, London and Paris
Where will we rest, weíre all living on top of it
Itís all that we have the USA is our daily bread
And no one is willing to share it

Why canít we see our fortunancy
Living as legends have lived
Bane and dismannered
We coax all the time
Knowing that nothing is left when we die

Come along Fool
A direct hit of the senses you are disconnected
Itís not that itís badÖitís not that itís death
Itís just on the tip of your tongue, and you're so silent

Wanting to live and laugh all the time
Sitting alone with you tea and your crime
Children with kids, and people with parents
Anywhich way thereís no past and no presence
When the day comes and all of them bums
Will reveal enchanting persons
Come along...

When it's a rut and baby's no luck
Half of it's misunderstanding love
The war we have won we're winning again
Within ourselves and within our friends
Come along...

*** Thanx a lot to Sgallagher & Trip tuttle for this one ***

Shaking Paper

Hold the gun
Way deep down
Look out young son
Look out young son

A good things is coming
'Cause the good thing's coming

Bigshot guns with no guns
Bigshot army with no army at all

I don't know what is worse
And I can't tell what is the best
People emphasize the way of the world
Demons despise the sound of shaking paper
Guess what I found out
You do too

Maybe Not

Thereís a dream that I see, I pray it can be
Look cross the land, shake this land
A wish or a command
A Dream that I see, donít kill it, itís free
Youíre just a man, you get what you can

We all do what we can
So we can do just one more thing
We can all be free
Maybe not in words
Maybe not with a look
But with your mind

Listen to me, donít walk that street
Thereís always an end to it
Come and be free, you know who I am
Weíre just living people

We wonít have a thing
So weíve got nothing to lose
We can all be free
Maybe not with words
Maybe not with a look
But with your mind

Youíve got to choose a wish or command
At the turn of the tide, is withering thee
Remember one thing, the dream you can see
Pray to be, shake this land

We all do what we can
So we can do just one more thing
We wonít have a thing
So weíve got nothing to lose
We can all be free
Maybe not with words
Maybe not with a look
But with your mind

But with your mind

I want all of you
When you give half of you
I want all of you

When you go by window
You see shadows
When youíre shopping for me
ĎCause when you give half of you
I want all of you

Sadness is a gentle mind
But a good women has her hands to use
Empty package of chips will tell you
What can be sold market and what can belongs to you
When you giveÖwhen you give half of you
I want all of you

Keep on Runnin' (Crawlin' Black Spider)

( John Lee Hooker )

When will you do what you say youíll do
How could you really do it
Will you keep on running
Baby settle down
Will you keep on running
Youíll lose your heart
Will you keep on running
Baby settle down
Will you keep on running
Run on, run on
Youíll rule your day

Crawlin' black spider baby
Crawlin' black spider

Begin to crawl on baby with the cracks were very high
Just keep on crawlin' till the day I die

Crawlin' black spider

When will you do what you say youíll do
How could you really do it
Will you keep on running
Baby settle down
Will you keep on running
Youíll lose your heart
Will you keep on running
Baby settle down
Will you keep on running
Run on, run on and youíll rule your day

Crawliní black spider

Evolution

( Featuring Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam )

Better call the ships
They've been caught sailing
Better call the captain
Heís been caught stealing
Better call the porter man
Heís been caught leaving
Better call all the guys on the deck
Theyíve been caught with no feeling
Better call the fisherman
'Cause theyíre coming on land
Better call the head nurse
Wrap us up, to throw us in the dark
Better call with some resistance
Better way to feel no shame
Better call with some persistence
That way you feel nothing at all
Better call on evolution
Better way to make a revolution
Better make your mind up quick
Better make your mind up quick

The Greatest

*** Thanx a lot to Jon fot these lyrics ***

The Greatest

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind of waterfall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars of night turned deep to dust

Melt me down
Into big black armour
Leave no trace of grace
Just in your honor
Lower me down
To culprit south
Make 'em wash a space in town
For the lead
And the dregs of my bed
I've been sleepin'
Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the later parade

Once I wanted to be the greatest
Two fists of solid rock
With brains that could explain
Any feeling

Lower me down
Pin me in
Secure the grounds
For the lead
And the dregs of my bed
I've been sleepin'
For the later parade

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind of waterfall could stall me
And then came the rush of the flood
Stars of night turned deep to dust

Living Proof

It's not your face
Or the color of your hair
Or the sound of your voice my dear
That's got me dragged in here
It's the ice in the seam, the scheme of you
You're supposed to have the answer
You're supposed to have living proof

Yes I was jealous
Because you are sworn
How could you come undone to a word so strong
My beating heart the anchor to a ship so warm
You're supposed to have the answer
You're supposed to have living proof
Well I am your answer I am living

Will you terrorize this
With your perfect lips
I watch you eat and feed this mess
To the running wind
But I know you from before and after until then
Do you have your answer
Do you have living proof
Well I am your answer I am living

You're supposed to have an answer
You're supposed to have living proof
Well do you have your answer
Do you have your answer
Well I am your answer I am living

*** Thanx a lot to Carly for this one ***

Lived in Bars

We've lived in bars
And danced on the tables
Hotels trains and ships that sail
We swim with sharks
And fly with aeroplanes in the air

Send in the trumpets
The marching wheelchairs
Open the blankets and give them some air
Swords and arches bones and cement
The light and the dark of the innocent of men

We know your house so very well
And we will wake you once we've walked up
All your stairs

There's nothing like living in a bottle
And nothing like ending it all for the world
We're so glad you will come back
Every living lion will lay in your lap
The kid has a homecoming the champion the horse
Who's going to play drums, guitar or organ with chorus
As far as we've walked from both ends of sand
Never have we caught a glimpse of this man

We know your house so very well
And we will bust down your door if you're not there

We've lived in bars
And danced on tables
Hotels trains and ships that sail
We swim with sharks
And fly with aeroplanes out of here
Out of here, out of here
Out of here, out of here

Could We

Could we
Take a walk
Could we
Have a talk alone
In the afternoon

Could we
Have a seat
Why yes be my guest
You can hold my hand

What a dream
In the grass
We kissed
Fell in love too fast too soon
Love full bloom

Should we get up
Let's wake up
Let's get dressed
I'll let you walk me up the street
Back home

Thank you
It was great
Let's make another date
Real soon
In the afternoon

Empty Shell

All that is left is an empty shell
Of my heart that is crushed
I don't never wanna see
What my mind has seen
When you loved me
Every night every night alone with you
Every night alone now

When she sits on your lap
Try to pretend to laugh
When she does stupid things
Just like I used to do
Do not hate her
Don't you even try
For to leave her is to love her
The same as you and I
I love you
And I miss you too
I really do love you
And I really do miss you too

But I don't know you
And I don't need you
And I don't want you anymore anymore

Every night every night alone with you
Every night alone now

Willie

Have you seen him
Have you seen him
Have you seen him

Have you seen him
Have you seen him
Have you seen him

Willie Deadwilder and Rebecca
They knew that they loved one another
Gonna have a real good time
No more sad, sad bad times
It's all they've been waiting for
Someone to knock at that door

Willie was shot once in his mind
And his cry out saved his own life
The second time was through his heart
The doctors pulled the bullet from inside
He had a job to do he said
That's his way of life

Please don't bring him down
Please don't let him go
He's on the same side as you
He's just a little behind

I tell you there are some people living alone
I tell you there are some people with nowhere to go
There are some people who don't believe in love
But Willie and Rebecca prove 'em all wrong

A man named John wrote a song for me to sing
And the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen
He is a very good man
And he has been an even very good man to me
I hope one day his song I will sing
Another love I still love

Familiar face to me
A standing arch above my heart
I've never been to reach
He's laid my head on the bed
And told me sweetly I am not
Crazy like all the others said
No he's not crazy like me

Please don't bring me down
Please don't let me go
My heart is a worried thing
Memories have now planted seeds of a field I now
Want to reap and sow
I'm on the same side as you
I'm just a little behind

(have you seen him)

Where Is My Love

Where is my love
Where is my love
Horses galloping
Bring him to me

Where is my love
Where is my love
Horses running free
Carrying you and me

Where is my love
Where is my love
Safe and warm
So close to me
In my arms
Finally

There is my love
There is my love
Horses galloping
Bring him in to me

Where is my love
Where is my love

The Moon

The moon is not only beautiful
It is so far away
The moon is not only ice cold
It is here to stay

When I lay me down
Will you still be around
When they put me six feet underground
Will the big bad beautiful you be around

Everyone says they know you
Better than you know who
Everyone says they own you
More than you do

When I lay me down
Will you still be around
When they put you six feet underground
Will the big bad beautiful moon be around

'Cause the moon is not only beautiful
It is so far away
The moon is not only ice cold
It is here to stay

Everyone says they know you
Better than you know who
Everyone says they own you
More than you do

Islands

I want to rule the islands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally

I don't want no heavy diamonds
And pearls crush my teeth
I just want my sailor
To sail back to me

The captain has a treasure
Says I hold the key
But the old mangroves
And sweet winds blow
Songs of you and me

I want to rule the islands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally

After It All

After it all
When it's said and done
Will you come back to me
And tell me that
It never was up to you or up to me

When you stand up so tall
With your back to me against the wall
And you make demands with your angry eyes
You say you're sorry that you
Didn't mean to scream you say
You're back again that you still love me
And that you never meant what you said to me
Should I believe what you're telling me

To wait for you
Was all I could do
To have you back with me so peacefully
You broke your back
You left your scratch
Then you came back to me
Just to get some sleep.

After it all
When it's said and done
Will you come back to me
And tell me that
It never was up to you or up to me

Hate

Anyone can tell you there's no more road to ride
Everyone will tell you there's no place to hide
There's no laws or rules to unchain your life
But the ones who didn't make it
The ones who couldn't take it
So glad they have made it out alive

Everyone loves the fun everyone comes by
In the wind I crunch I want to die
They can give me pills
Or let me drink my fill
The heart wants to explode far away
Where nobody knows

Do you believe she said that
Do you believe she said that
I said I hate myself and I want to die

Half of it is innocent
The other half is wise
The whole damn thing makes no sense
I wish I could tell you a lie

Hey come here
Let me whisper in your ear
I hate myself and I want to die

Do you believe she said that
Can you believe she repeated that
I said I hate me myself and I
I said I hate myself and I want to die

Love and Communication

Love and communication you were here for me
At this very moment 'cause I found you on the phone
You called me
And you were not hunting me

Learning more and more about less and less and less
On the edge of your seat in some dark movie
Can you memorize the scenes
They'll be different next week
Can you tell me can you tell can you tell
If there's something better
'Cause you know there always is
There always is

Drawn to the party like a spider filling up your guts
Don't hate the night with what you shouldn't have
Come along for the ride you just know you should
You just know you should
Can you tell can you tell can you tell
If there's something better
'Cause you know there always is
There always is

Hated to see you sad when I left
There's just no good in that but the good part was
That I came out at all 'cause I don't venture out
Into the lives of the new
I want you to come along for the ride
How long will you stay for your whole life
You just know you should
Can you tell me can you tell can you tell
If there's something better
'Cause you know there always is
There always is

Love and communication you were here for me
At this very moment 'cause I found you on the phone
You called me
And you were not hunting me

Jukebox

New York

( Frank Sinatra )

Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York

I wanna wake up in a city that doesn't sleep
To find the cream of the crop at the top of the heap

These little town blues are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
New York

It's up to you
New York

Ramblin' (Wo)man

( Hank Williams )

Well I love you baby
But you got to understand
When the Lord made me
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me, he made me

Some folks
Some folks might say that Iím no good
That I wouldnít settle down if I could
I love to see the towns go crawling by
There's something Iíve got to do
Before I die

I love you baby
But you got to understand
When the Lord made me
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me, he made me

Some people say
That I do just fine
Cause I hear sweet song
Moving down
And when that old southern train comes calling me
There's something over the hill
I just got to see

Well I love you
I love you baby
But you've got to understand
When the Lord made me
He made me
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me, he made me

Now when I'm gone
When I'm gone and at my grave you stand
Just say God's called home your ramblin' woman

I love you
I love you baby
But you've got to understand
He made a ramblin' woman
He made me

Metal Heart

Losing the star without a sky
Losing the reasons why
You're losing the calling that you've been faking
And I'm not kidding

It's damned if you don't and it's damned if you do
Be true 'cause they'll lock you up in a sad sad zoo
Oh hidy hidy hidy what do you trying to prove
By hidy hidy hiding you're not worth a thing

Sew your fortunes on a string
And hold them up to light
Blue smoke will take
A very violent flight
And you will be changed
And everything
And you will be in a very sad sad zoo

I once was lost
But now I'm found was blind
But now I see you
How selfish of you
To believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming

Metal heart you're not hiding
Metal heart you're not worth a thing

Metal heart you're not hiding
Metal heart you're not worth a thing
You're not worth a thing
You're not worth a thing

Silver Stallion

( Highwayman )

I'm gonna steal a silver stallion
With not a mark upon his silky hide
Teach him he can trust me like a sister
One day we'll saddle up and ride

And we're gonna ride, we're gonna ride
Ride like the one eyed jack
Of diamonds with the devil close behind
We're gonna ride, we're gonna ride

I'm gonna find me a reckless man
Razor blades and dice in his eyes
Just a touch of sadness in his fingers
Thunder and lightening in his thighs

And we're gonna ride, we're gonna ride
Ride like the one eyed jack
Of diamonds with the devil close behind
We're gonna ride, we're gonna ride

I'm gonna chase the sky forever
With the man and the stallion and the wind
The sun is gonna burn into a cinder
Before we ever pass this way again

And we're gonna ride, we're gonna ride
Ride like the one eyed jack
Of diamonds with the devil close behind
We're gonna ride, we're gonna ride

Aretha, Sing One For Me

( George Jackson )

Me and my baby, we had a big fight
We ended our romance the same night
In an angry mood, he walked out the door
I said this song's going to an Aretha Franklin show

Hey, Aretha, sing one for me
Let him know our life's in misery
Will you sing a song that will touch his heart
And make him sorry that we are apart

I don't know if taking requests is part of your show
Do me this favor and I'll love you forever
Many romances have been saved by your sound
You've touched so many lovers, so many times

Yes, Aretha, sing one for me
Let him know my life's in misery
Will you sing a song that will touch his heart
And make him sorry that we ever parted

"Think", "Respect", "Call Me", "A Bridge Over Troubled Waters",
And "I Can't See Myself Leaving You".

Hey, Aretha, sing one for me
Let him know I'm as miserable as a woman could be
Sing a song that'll touch his heart
So he'll be sorry that we are apart

"Think", "Respect", "Call Me", "I Never Loved a Man Like I Love You"
And "I Can't See Myself Leaving You"

*** Thanx a lot to Sergio for this one ***

Lost Someone

( James Brown )

I lost someone
A million to one
Ten thousand people
Under my false

Someone, the one, my one
The only one
That's the someone
The someone
The only one
That's the someone
That I lost

He's nothing but a stranger
Come on home to me
I'm so weak on my knees
Help me, help me please
Please, please
Good God Almighty I love you

I lost someone
One trillion to one
A million people
Under the big old sun I see
My one on the street
Looking like a bomb
That's my one
That's my someone
He's the one
He's
Help that one

He's nothing but a stranger
Bring on home to me
He's so weak on both his bended knees
Can you help me, help me please
Gee whiz, I miss the one that I need
I lost someone

Lord Help the Poor & Needy

( Jesse Mae Hemphill )

Lord help to send a man
In this land
Oh Lord help send a man
In this land

When we all die together
And we face the rising sun
Oh my Lord, oh my lord

Lord Help the Poor and needy
In this land
Oh Lord Help the Poor and needy
In this land

When we all die together
And we face the rising sun
Oh Lord, help, my Lord

Lord help the human race
Lord help human race
Cause we all die together
And we face the morning sun
Oh Lord, help

Lord help the motherless children
In this land
Oh Lord help the motherless children
In this land

Cause we all die together
And we face the rising sun
Oh Lord, help, Lord

I believe in you

They ask me how I feel
And if my love is real
And how I see the things that I know
I'm gonna make it through

They look at me and frown,
They drove me from this town
They don't want me around
'Cause I believe

They show me to the door
They say don't come back no more
We don't like the way you think you do
So I walk out on my own
One thousand miles from my home
But I don't feel alone
'Cause I believe
I do

I believe in you
Even through the tears and the laughter
I believe in you
Even though we're apart
I believe in you
Even on the morning after
Oh, when the dawn is nearing
When the night is disappearing
This feeling will still be here in my heart
My heart

Please don't let me drift too far
Keep me safe the same way you are
Where I will always be renewed
And what you've given me here today
Is worth everything I could pay
And no matter what everyone they say
Cause I believe
I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe in you

I believe in you
When we have no time together
I believe in you when white turn to black,
I believe in you even though I be outnumbered
I be
Oh, though earth would be shaking
And friends will be forsaking
But please we can't go back
I believe in you
Take it away, give it away

Song for Bobby

I wanna tell you
I've always wanted to tell you
But I never had the chance to say
What I feel in my heart from the beginning til my dying day

I was fifteen, sixteen maybe
In the park I was waving my arms
You were waved this way
And you sang the song I was screaming
I wanted you to

Another time was in South Carolina
It's always been the third encore
Whose wind came roaring in
Can you tell me who were you singing for
Oh my God, can you tell me who you were singing to

A phone call from your New York City office
You were supposedly asking to see me
And how I wanted to tell you
That I was just only four hundred miles away
Who could believe that you were calling I was in DC
I was four hundred miles behind
Backstage pass in my hand
Giving you my heart was my plan I wish I could tell you

My chance
In the middle of the stadium in Paris, France
Can I finally tell you
Can I finally tell you
To be my man
April in Paris, can I see you
Can you please be my man

Donít Explain

( Arthur Herzog jr.)

Hush now, don't explain
You're the cause of all my
Trouble and pain
Unless you're mad
Don't explain

My love, my love, my love
Don't explain
There is nothing within me now to gain
You know that I love you
Look at what loving has done
All my thoughts were real
And so sincere
I was so completely yours

You know I hear folks cha-cha-cha-chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, that don't matter
You're here with me
Sit down, have a sit
It's your time to feel the pain
It's your time to weep
Don't explain

Hush now, don't explain
There is nothing within me now to gain
I'm gonna skip it instead
Don't explain
Don't explain

Woman Left Lonely

( Janis Joplin )

A woman left lonely
Will soon grow tired of waiting
Shell do crazy things
On lonely occasions

A simple conversation
With a strange men now and then
Makes for a touchy situation
With a conscious now and then

When she gets lonely
She's thinking about her man
She knows he's taking her for granted
And she just don't understand

Well, the fevers of the night
They burn an unloved woman
All those red-hot flames
Try to push old love aside
Got no sweet temptation

A woman left lonely
She's just the victim of her man
He can't keep up his own way
She does the best that she can
And a woman left lonely
Is lonely through and through
All along she conquers
All the hell he put it through

A woman left lonely
A woman left lonely
She's just a victim of her man
She gets tired waiting
All alone she's just waiting

Blue

( Joni Mitchell )

Blue
Songs are like tattoos
You know Iíve been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away

Hey blue
Here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in

Youíve got to keep thinking
Thereíre so many sinking
You got to keep thinking
We can make it through these waves

Acid, booze and ass
Needles, guns and grass
Lots of laughs
Lots of laughs

Everybodyís saying that hellís the hippest way to go out
I donít think so
But Iím gonna take a look around it though
Blue, I love, I love you
I love you

Blue, here is a shell for you
Inside youíll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me
Blue
From me

Sun

Here it comes, here it comes, here comes the sun
It is hot, it is hot and close to us
Can you guess, yes, it is, here's the day
We are free, you and me, we can finally run

If they catch us we can say
Whose side are you on

Here it comes, here it comes in all its burning
Here it comes, here it comes, itís splitting the bone
Here it comes, here it comes, weíre all so tired of waiting
Whose side, whose side are you on
Whose side, whose side, whose side
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I wanna hear every answer to every question
Itís not that I never wanted, I just never knew
If you can, if you could lend your head
This is the day people like me been waiting for
Waiting for, waiting for
So tired of waiting, so tired of waiting

Ruin

Iíve seen gypsies who made it all the way and kept goiní
Kept rolling with nowhere to go
Nowhere to go

As far as Iíve seen from the bush
In the wilderness, to every known city
Iíve been to Saudi Arabia, Dhaka, Calcutta
Soweto, Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
Argentine, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
Belfast to the desert in Spain (Wollongong)

Some little bitty island in the middle of the pacific
All the way back home to my town
To my town

Bitchiní, complaininí
When some people ainít got shit to eat
Bitchiní, moaniní
So many people you know what they ainít got

What are we doing
Weíre sitting on a ruin
What are we doing
Weíre sitting on a ruin

As far as Iíve seen from the bush
In the wilderness, to every known city
Iíve been to Saudi Arabia, Dhaka, Calcutta
Soweto, Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
Argentine, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
Belfast to the desert in Spain (Tokyo)
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin

So many people you know what they ainít got

Weíre sitting on a ruin
What are we doing
Weíre sitting on a ruin

What are we doing
Weíre sitting on a ruin
What are we doing
Weíre sitting on a ruin

3,6,9

I feel tired, awake all night
Head so heavy like a wastebasket
I feel choke, emotionally broke
In the gutter and Iím still looking down, I feel alone

I want out, I want on my own
I want everything I own
I find letters, pictures
Memories of what you canít seem to let go
In your bedside table, in your pocket, in your wallet, you know

Abusive, a stranger in bed
Elusive, forget everything you said
You got a right to have that hand you own
But the moment you hit it, youíre on your own
Youíre ready to go
Youíre wantiní out, youíre wantiní to hit the road
Your love is like a steamboat running, I need to float
I donít need five times a day to tell me to go
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
3,6,9, you drink wine

Always On My Own

I was always on my own

Look in my eyes and see the bomb
Fun and nonsense, on and on
Tell me no lie, under your thumb
Back to back, tick tock has begun

I was always on my own

Look in my eyes and see the bomb
Fun and nonsense, on and on
Tell me no lie, under your thumb
Back to back, tick tock has begun
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I am what you want
I am what youíre not
I am what you want
I am what youíre not

I want to live
My way of living
I want to live
My way of living

Real Life

I met a doctor, he want to be a dancer
I met a mother, she want to be alone
I met a preacher, he want to be sinister
I met a kid, another kid, he want to be unknown

Nothingís wrong with helping the strong
Nothingís wrong with helping the strong
Nothingís wrong with helping the strong
Nothingís wrong to live your day long
Nothingís wrong to live your day long
Nothingís wrong, nothingís wrong

Real life is ordinary
Sometimes you donít wanna live
Want to live
Sometimes you gotta do what you donít wanna do
To get away with an unordinary life
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I met a teacher, he want to be a dreamer
I met a sister, she want to meet her maker
I met a poet, he wanna be a joke
I met a dog, he just wanna bone
He just wanna bone

Real life is ordinary
Sometimes you donít wanna live
Want to live
Sometimes you gotta do what you donít wanna do
To get away with an unordinary life

Real life
Get away, get away, get awayÖ
Is ordinary
Sometimes you donít wanna live
Want to live
Sometimes you gotta do what you donít wanna do
To get away with an unordinary life

Real life
Get away, get away, get awayÖ
Is ordinary
Sometimes you donít wanna live
Want to live
Sometimes you gotta do what you donít wanna do
To get away with an unordinary life

Human Being

You got a right
You got a right
You got a right
Youíre a human being

Youíre a human being
Youíre a human being
Youíre a human being

You got a right to scream when they donít want you to speak
You got a right to be what you want and where you wanna be
Youíve got a right to believe, to breathe
You got a right
Youíre a human being

You got your own voice so sing
You got two hands, letís go and make anything
We all got rules, we all have to break
We all have to make those mistakes
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When I say I know the way Iím only trying
No, donít nobody know where the road to life is really lying
See the people on TV, get shot in their very own street
People just like you, people just like me

Canít you see you got your hand on the advantages
You could stand to manage your damages
You, my dear, are a force to feed, not to fear

You got a right to anywhere, anything
You got a right, you got a right
Youíre a human being

You got a right to anywhere, anything
You got a right, you got a right
Youíre a human being
Youíre a human being
Youíre a human being
Youíre a human being

Got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right
Got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, youíre a human being

Got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, human being
Got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right, got a right

Manhattan

The hotel room and the street below
People come and people go
All the friends that we used to know
Ainít coming back
Ainít coming back
Ainít coming back

You say your heart has a rhythm
Well I see you got your secret on
You say you have nothing to hide
You and your secret lie

Donít look at the moon tonight
Youíll never be, never be, never be Manhattan
Donít look at the moon tonight
You can never be, never be, never be, never be Manhattan
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Little one with your badge and your suitcase on
No suit and your hairís not right
íCause nobody knows this woman by your side
Itís not who you know, itís the useful woman by your side
Itís not who you know, itís the useful woman by your side
Manhattan

You say your heart has a rhythm
Well I see you got your secret on
You say you have nothing to hide
You and your secret lie

Donít look at the moon tonight
Youíll never be, never be, never be Manhattan
Donít look at the moon tonight
You can never be, never be, never be, never be Manhattan

You say your heart has a rhythm
You got your secret on
You got nothing to hide
You and your secret lie

Youíll never be, never be, never be Manhattan
Howliní at me, howliní at you
Howliní at me, howliní at you

Liberty in the basement light
Free speech, lipstick and the moonlight
Howling to get me, howliní to get you
In Harlem, in a dark back room
Dancing to a different tune
Howliní at me, howliní at you

Silent Machine

I walk on through woods and its streets every night
I walk through people who walk too close
Into each other, theyíre hanginí
I am told thereís a mother you may remember

In the name of the father but never the ghost
Me, I use the money for those just as hard
Who hung his head for the ladies and pretended he did
He did it, she did it, he did, we did it
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
She loves you, she loves you, she loves you so hard
The one person to have you cannot
The child, he is a sinner, tell me teacher
You put on your light and then turn around

The silent machine is here to meet you
You put on your light and then turn around, turn around
You lie, you lie, you lie, you lie, you lie and turn around
You turn around, you turn around...

Silent machine is here to meet you
Silent machine is here to meet you
Silent machine is here to meet you
Silent machine is here

If there ever was a religious figure
In my age it donít count to have buttercup eyes
But you know some of us we see more than eye to eye

She loves you, she loves you, she loves you so hard
The one person to have you cannot
The child, he is a sinner, tell me teacher
You put on your light and then turn around

The silent machine is here to meet you
You put on your light and then turn around
You lie, you lie, you lie, you lie, you lie

Silent machine is here to meet you
Silent machine is here to meet you
Silent machine is here to meet you
Silent machine is here

Nothiní But Time

I see you kid alone in your room
You got the weight on your mind
And youíre trying to get by
Your world is just beginning
And I know this life seems never-ending

But youíve got nothiní but time
And it ainít got nothiní on you
You know what you got to do
You ain't got nothiní but time
And it ainít got nothiní on you

Let Ďem in one by one
Keep them safe from all the harm
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Let Ďem in one by one
Keep them safe from all the harm

You wanna live
And be somebody
They want to give
And be wanted

They want to forgive
And not be forgotten
They want to reach the end
They want to live
Their way of living
Their way of living

I see you kid alone in your room
I see you kid, you got the weight on your mind
I see youíre just trying to get by
But your world is just beginning
I know this life seems never ending
Itís up to you
Itís up to you, you know

Itís only time
And it ainít got nothiní on you
Itís nothiní but time
And it ainít got nothiní on you

Never give away
Never give away your body
Never
Never give away your friends
Never, never give away what you always wanted
Never, never ever give in

You wanna live
And be somebody
They want to give
And be wanted
They want to forgive and not be forgotten
You wanna reach the end
And want to live
You want to live

You want to live
Your way of living
You want to live
Your way of living

You want to live
My way of living
You want to live
My way of living

You want to live
I want to live, I want to live

You ainít got nothiní else but time
And they ainít got nothiní on you
You ainít got nothiní else but time
And they ainít got nothiní on you
Your world is just beginning
Your world is just beginning
Your world is just beginning
Your world is just beginning

Itís up to you
To be a superhero
Itís up to you
To be like nobody

Itís up to you
To be a superhero
Itís up to you
To be like nobody
Like nobody

Ainít you, ainít got nothiní but time
To be your way of living
And it ainít got nothiní on you
You got nothiní but time
Ainít it, ainít got nothiní on you

Peace & Love

Peace and love is a famous generation
Iím a lover but Iím in it to win
Peace and love is a famous generation
Iím a lover but Iím in it to win

Everybody got shit to pay

Canít go lala with fafa and rara
Gotta do ditty with dada for nada
It ainít appropriate that Iím stoked that I get
A hundred thousand hits on the internet

But that donít mean a shit even if youíre legitimate
I wanna feel honey now, like I got money now
But that donít mean a shit even if youíre legitimate
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I used to have scrounge money on the ground money
Choosiní Black Flag was like choosiní a race
They had a name for us, we was despicable
So disrespectable, like a dirty chemical
We were so attracted to mappable
People just wanted us to blend in and fade
Oh, youíre a horror now, a visual foul
When I was a teen, I had incredible dreams
99% yaíll, itís on the wall yaíll
Constitutionís fine if we choose the school
So our kids know whoís spinniní the globe

Peace and love is a famous generation
Iím a lover but Iím in it to win
Peace and love is a famous generation
Iím a lover but Iím in it to win

Peace and love is a famous generation
Maybe a lover but Iím in it to win
Peace and love is a famous generation
Iím a lover but Iím in it to win
