I’ve had a feeling that it’s time to move on
Cause nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
Leave to the birds what don’t cover my bones
Cause nothing’s gonna grow in this any longer
Wonder’s a train I for some reason stepped off
Now nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
The water’s dirty and my tears are lost
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer

Nothing’s gonna grow till we lay something down
It’s the same ol’ ground under every divide
You want a war? Want a fight?
Take a look at yourself and remember your mind

This land is wild in each heart that’s born
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
We’re taught to be what we were never meant for
Now nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
We fight for lines we can tow till torn
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
Here’s to the fallen who just couldn’t go on
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer

Who said to make it at any cost?
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
I’ve never hated, but I’ve been where it’s from
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
Just one pill and all this fear would be gone
But nothing’s gonna grow in that soil any longer
It’s not the trick, but the heart that’s gone
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer

I missed the question we’re all answering for
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
How many years just getting along?
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
“Working Class Hero” just never caught on
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer
But we’ve sung those visions in so many songs
Nothing’s gonna grow in this soil any longer

Remember your mind

I’m a fool if I moan
I’m a wreck if I weep
I’m a step if I fall
I’m a sucker to reach
I’m alone if I lie
Just a fuck if I preach
I’ll be nothing at all till you’re back here with me.

It’s a farce if I mourn
Or just stand on my feet
I’m heartless at best
A waste if I dream
I’m a colourless tone
I’m a shade with no heat
I’ll be nothing at all till you’re back here with me.

Straight fold crumpled up in the pages
Ruled line, a crooked tear down the paper.

I’m a comical bore
I’m a flame with no teeth
Just a weary old man
Not sure which way to lean
I’m a wicked respite
From the final frontier
I’ll be nothing at all till you’re back here with me.

Straight fold crumpled up in the pages
Ruled line, a crooked tear down the paper.

You’ve littered every trait a man should learn from his father
Trouble is that you get your way
You’ve spat on every way to ever deal with another
Rolling heads and then turning graves

You should be chilled to the bone

I’d talk to you of bad karma blowing in but I’d rather
Take it into my hands to shake
Those heads all buried so deep in the pie you shit in to feed us
That kissin ass is now all they taste

But there’s so much to learn without you to decide
Whatever’s on your mind, just keep it out of my garden
I must face it everywhere outside, just keep away from my garden

The fight is all dead and gone in too many sisters and brothers, cowering in your nanny state
But there’s something greater than gold in the pot at the end of this rainbow
Potions that minds awake

To discern it with love and let it rule from inside
Whatever’s on your mind, just keep it out of my garden
I will face you anywhere outside, just keep away from my garden

Today there’ll be a stand on it
Tonight there’ll be no word of it
Bombs away

Current is filtered by factions
Affairs will be your distractions
Bombs away

There’s none of us wanting no trouble
Busting up of these bubbles
Bombs away

Smoke is all that’s good from your paper
Your powerr in words is tapering
Bombs away

Down to a simple life
A simple life
Always unattainable no matter we try

For this simple life
A simple life
Each one with their part and their roles to find

In this simple life

Let’s all act … Let’s all … Let’s all act … Let’s all … Let’s all act … Let’s all … Let’s all act … Let’s all …

For this simple life
A simple life
Reminded of all that we’ve lost on trial

For this simple life
A simple life
Just a vanishing dream held before our eyes

The time has come now to steer from this ever steepening decline to madness of this puppet race
Now I’ve never been one to debate what is each to theirs and no other, but it time to put a few things to stake

For there’s so much to learn without them to decide
Whatever’s on your mind, just keep it out of my garden
I will face you anywhere outside, just keep away from my garden

In a world of Bees, I was stung by the butterfly
I’m hiding out, like a cloud on the stariest night
But I’m on the verge of a chance that is gonna turn my whole world round

I can’t deny, I’ve thought about delivery
A stolen briefcase hidden under cover of night
Chuck it far off the bridge, cause it’s gonna let my whole world down

I’ve had my eyes to the ground, doubting all that I see
Had my head in the clouds so they’ll never find me
I’ve been burning the pages of all that I read
But I see through the words, so they’ll never fool me
The vultures ‘been circling, waiting to feed
I’ve a wound for the hounds, but they’ll never catch me
They’ve got me surrounded for the time being
But I’ll break through their walls and they’ll never find me

It’s no concern of mine to figure how to do it right
With all the stations blurting hype and closing doors in the night
But I’m on the verge of a chance that is gonna turn my whole world down

I’ve had my eyes to the ground, doubting all that I see
Put my head in the clouds so they’ll never find me
I’ve been hiding a joker right up a my sleeve
Now they’re raising the bar, but they’ll never fool me
They’ve been haunting my dreams every moment I sleep
But I wake with a hope, so they’ll never scare me
They’ve got me surrounded for the time being
But I’ll break through their walls and they’ll never find me

With near every single dream I have, there always comes the clue
What’s a picture of me without a picture of you?
If I never get to tell you straight, you must believe it’s true
That whilst I’m lonely I sure smile a lot

Distance makes the heart grow fonder so they say,
But it’s always said with hidden yearning, and I aint seeing things that way
So while I treasure our time together, I’m just looking for that day
Where though I’m lonely I sure smile a lot

Now I know you’re somewhere out there trying to make it in your own way
I send you every single blessing that my heart could ever say
And then I’ll wear it on my sleeve so that it’s never far a way
And though I’m lonely, I’ll still smile a lot

Life’s an open road, there’s many things I’ve left behind
Different forks I could’ve taken, different ways to share my time
But I wouldn’t change a thing, so you take yours and I’ll take mine
While I’m lonely I sure smile a lot

Now I know you’re somewhere out there trying to make it in your own way
I send you every single blessing that my heart could ever say
And then I’ll wear it on my sleeve so that it’s never far a way
And though I’m lonely, I’ll still smile a lot

With near every single dream I have, there always comes the clue
What’s a picture of me without a picture of you?
If I never get to tell you straight, you must believe it’s true
That whilst I’m lonely I sure smile a lot

Yeah while I’m lonely I sure smile a lot

Yeah while I’m lonely I sure smile . . .

Held I a rose . . . it died
The petals they fell in the fading light
Now I’ve a rose thorn for you

Wrote I a soulful line
Mournful it sounds though i mean to smile
Now I’ve a tear cried for you

It could’ve been fate love
I could’ve been fooled
My heart as all for you
Now my journey it ends as the roses bloom
I fall in air too

Heard have I a thousand times
A song as a window that gazed for miles
Now if I could play that song for you

It could’ve been fate love
I could’ve been fooled
My heart as all for you
Now my journey it ends as the roses bloom
I fall in air too

My fading heart . . revived in moments here without you, child

Tear down my world, and still your monument it rises

My fault? . . yeah, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, though I’ve lost thee in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world

My breaking fall . . .you’ve seen me land before you face side down
So that is all? . . I’ll keep on hanging on that first time

My fault? . . yeah, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, though I’ve lost thee in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world

I turned to this song to find myself divided by an only love, and a world that still turns round
Am I the only one to feel there’s something writing on the canvas of my heart?

My fault? . . yeah, it’s right
Time will heal in moments, though I’ve lost thee in this whirl
We’ll meet in every other world . . .

It’s one day a lady . . next, a quivering song that lifts me high off the page

Then money will fail when you think that you’re safe till you all but forget about stars and love

Am I holding onto these woes to forget I’m just floating in space
I try remember to listen to the sound of the heart before my name

In the hammock alone again, with so little time for these wonders and worlds
The view for too many’s confused, with so little love, ho do we get by without . .

Holding onto these woes, and forget we’re just floating in space
I try remember to listen to the sound of the world before my name

Have you travelled through the mirrors of worlds beyond this place?
Will you be dreaming of love the day that you leave behind your name?

Dawn again . . still up again . . wait for what the light will frame
Pouring it . . a cup of it . . over and up again
Hearing it . . singing it . . writing it . . it all comes again
Sharing . . caring . . flying back over this . .

World that bears us in gold and shimmering grace
Now I know that I’m hearing the sound of the soul beyond my name

And I’ll travel through the mirrors of worlds beyond this place
And I’ll be dreaming of love the day that I leave behind my name

Oh, how the love for it all drives insane.

You packed up your world . . . gave it all up

And your heavens decent has left this hole in front of me
I couldn’t find much . . . yeah I wish I had more to soothe your hurts

Feeling up on the rafters above me, in case you hid a key
Blow a kiss to the window inside . . . to the down side, where you stare at me
It may not have been that bad, but I’m feeling for you

For what it’s all worth . . . i aint never had no gun
I’ve not even a foe of such, that I’d ever need to
But for you my love . . . I’d take ‘em all out . . . if you’ll help me down

But please don’t you shun me, cause I won’t heed
I’m stubborn with demands as can be
I’ll cut another way to inside, and if nothing else drag you out with me
I aint never played bad . . . I’m just thinking of you
And don’t that mean anything to thee from where you are?
Am I where you want to be?

But you won’t see me leave for anything till this is over
Your world’s still singing softly with me
No you won’t see me leave for anything till this is over
Your world’s still singing softly with me . . . for you to come out.

What worth is all that I’ve seen?

I’ve had it good, and I know I’m still young
And there’s many not blessed as me
Free to dream . . . free to be
So I’ve seen nothing of what some have seen
For as sure as I’m singing this song

There be warring man, and dying man

I’d rather not talk of belief
I try to take things as they come
And I aint earnt no right to preach
But I think I’d choose love over guns
Over money . . . over winning
For as sure as I’m singing this song

There be warring man, and dying man

But what to do when everyone speaks their mind at one time
On race, religion and peace
The dollar’s down . . . The sea levels rise
Now someone’s gone and lost all the money we made blackening the sky
We’ve got love dealt with guns
And priests on the run
And people with scowls as their greetings
I might not know much of this world, but at the moment its meaning defeats me

Give me love . . . just give me love

I sit here and ponder a while
Lap up the smiles as they come
Have a joke at this cloning called “style”, and the “heard it before” number 1
But while it’s funny, I know somewhere
As sure as I’m singing this song

There be warring man, and dying man

But what to do when everyone seems to be pushing their way at one time
For these things that they need?
Plastic toys . . . just sore to the eyes
They’ll be landfill in weeks
But all that matters is that somebody buys
We’ve got the world out on credit
Before they’ve got it . . . they’ve bet it
Some forget that there’s people need feeding
Now I might not know much of this world, but at the moment its meaning defeats me

Give me love . . . just give me love

And what I mean as being love is not just hot pink, nasty lusting
Or even “I’m yours, and You’re mine” love
But just, “I’ll never let you suffer!”
Cause oh my sister, I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
See, I don’t know you man, but I can help some before I go . . .

In this world of bitter sweet
There lived a selfish soul divine
They called him man . . . but man grew week
The more empowered he became in time

But amidst all the rubble . . . the running makeup and stubble
There’s hearts amongst man to believe in
And while all this momentum . . . yeah it’s gonna take some slowing
I think we’re far too young yet to be leaving

So oh my sister, I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
There aint no lesson that’s not worth knowing
There aint no journey not worth growing for

Oh my sister, I’ll be with you
Got your back if you need it brother
See, I don’t know you man, but I can help some before I go . . .

Give me love . . . just give me love

Well I’m searching for something this evening

Though I find less the more that I try
What I’ve waited for, I could’ve already found
Before what it is does arrive

So I’ll think not of what may tomorrow
Decide on my fat till the end
Just another day to sing of the joy I’ve found
When I sing with my friends

My words only come now in pictures
So excuse me if I sit quiet and dream
Of what a magic world it would be
If we all just found we could say as we mean

Then a tune came and graced me this morning
From the songbird who sang in her tree
She was too high to see
But her tune, as it fell knew it would fly home with me

What a luck dream I fell into
and I’ll always be grateful to you

The Wilde man said we’re all in the gutter
Though like him I’ve my sights on the stars
In this crazy world I’ll fall and I’ll float
But I’ll always be fine with my part

Like a dream in the hearts of fools she comes

And the stars in the night give her way
Cause hers is a shining love, just like the earth she’s from
She’s a light in my day

Like a song on the whistling wind she comes
And the sounds of man fade away
Cause hers is a soothing love, just like the earth she’s from
Yeah, she sings in my day

Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you . . . you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t look away

Like a wave on the opal sea she comes
And caresses the sand where I lay
Cause hers is a healing love, just like the earth she’s from
Yeah she kisses my day

Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you . . . you
Heaven got nobody like you

And I can’t help but praise the earth she’s from
Like a dream in the hearts of all she loves
Like a song on the whistling wind she comes . . . in love

Heaven got nobody like you
Heaven got nobody like you . . . you
Heaven got nobody like you
And I can’t look away

Watching the waves roll in to cast their hands in faith upon these shores

Hope’s reflected off the water from the gathering tribes above . . . romancing change

For the tides, they are slowly turning
And things aint half as bad as they once seemed
As we dance out from the gloom to our cosmic ballroom
Surrounded by distant light . . . who could ever stay inside?

The spirit drums echo from the chambers
Lifting me high above

There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

So rise from your sleep, cause it’s not over
The moon is full in our hearts tonight
And under a cloudless sky, we’ll all wonder
Like water in the sea we’ll rise

But elsewhere man is wasting his time being angry
Elsewhere man is losing faith
But while the shadows threaten, our burning hearts will always keep them at bay
So fear not as we play

For the spirit drums echo from the chambers
Lifting me high above

There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise
There’s a soultide on the rise

I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again

But I’m walking easy home . . .

It won’t come out easy . . . but easily go
No it won’t come out easy . . . but easily go

In the breath of the morning I heard it all
But the breath of the morning soon will be gone

Still I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again
But I’m walking easy home

In the nest of the eagle I saw a song
And I saw the music feeding the young

And I saw the music changing it all
But I know the music soon will be gone

Still I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again
But I’m walking easy home . . . The death of a friend
Still I’m walking easy home . . .

Still I’m walking easy home . . . It won’t come again
But I’m walking easy home . . . The death of a friend
Still I’m walking easy home . . .

Song departing . . .

What I feel is a layman’s attempt to express the beauty and sorrow of the unattainable. Despite its shortcomings though, this song still resonates with those visions within me.

I’d love to share my heart, but I can’t write the song
You know I’d tell, but words can’t define everything
Just to fall in my coffee seems simple enough
To dream it all up my own way
If there’s ever a time that I need you love
A love to lose everything

I’d be half this man if every step I chose my own way
I’d never move if I could decide everything
And my vision of fate is just frosted glass, till something just falls in the way
If there’s ever a time when I need you love
A love to lose everything here
Just pour it out

A secret whispered will haunt the heart of one so inclined to let pass the chances away
Still, I find no other
But not do I wilt in dismay
For I live in a dream of the world that I love
And the finest of sometime will soon be today

I’d love to share my heart
Have I waited too long?
I can’t count the times I’ve thrown away everything
So I fall in my coffee again again
To just dream it all up my own way
If there’s ever a time that I need you love
Oh I need you love
How I need you love
Yes I need you love
A love to lose everything

Well I’ve been in this situation before
By the time I should’ve been there
Barely walking out the door
Cause I’m always late
I know I am
So rather than show up I won’t even go
Now I’ve done it again

Hey man I’m sorry
You know it’s a little bit hard for me
Cause I think I’m losing my mind
Just a little bit
I’m just a little bit crazy
Just a little bit soft
Just a little bit dreaming
I’m just a little bit lost

Time won’t even bother checking on me
When the end of the world comes
It won’t even turn
To see where I’ve been
Cause I’m always late
I cannot mend
So rather than show up I won’t even go
Now I’ve done it again

Hey man I’m sorry
You know it’s a little bit hard for me
Cause I think I’m losing my mind
Just a little bit
I’m just a little bit crazy
Just a little bit soft
Just a little bit dreaming
I’m just a little bit lost

Well I seem to remember a time when it was fine
When I was still a part if so many things
But I was always there on time
Now something must’ve happened
Maybe it was this guitar
See, she haunts my dreams both day and night
Now I never move too fast

But when I’m playing these lonely blues
Everything seems to go alright
Then I get to where I’m going
And I can’t help but sigh …

Hey man I’m sorry
You know it’s a little bit hard for me
Cause I think I’m losing my mind
Just a little bit
I’m just a little bit crazy
Just a little bit soft
Just a little bit dreaming
I’m just a little bit lost

I come from the goddess
And to her I shall return
Like a drop of rain
Falling to the ocean

Mother/Father carry me
Your child I’ll always be
Mother/Father carry me
Down to the sea

In the cool of the evening, they used to gather
