Track Name: Trouble in Mind
every day I have
this trouble in my mind
is the life I live
is it really mine?
and do I feel
what they feel?
and do I know
what they know?

every day I have
this struggle in my brain
is the part I play
is it worth the pain?
and do I feel
what they feel?
and do I know
what they know?

every day I have
this mumble in my head
what I give
is it what I get?
and do I feel
what they feel?
and do I know
what they know?

cause they don’t talk to you
if you don’t know where you belong to
the only thing you know for sure
the show must go on

the show, the show, the show goes on
you’re no hero, you’re no star
you don’t know who you are
the show, the show, the show goes on
but you gonna break apart
Track Name: One Day
one day, I’m gonna shoot you down
cause you’ve been out here too long
and nobody’s gonna miss you when you’re gone

one day, you’ll wake up in your blood
cause you’ve been out here too long
and nobody’s gonna miss you when you’re gone

one day, I’m gonna lay you low
cause you’ve been out here too long
and nobody’s gonna miss you when you’re gone
Track Name: I Ain't Be the Person
for ten years I’ve been rambling
from town to town I go
for ten years I’ve been rambling
now I’m rambling home
and I’m calling out your name
and I’m knocking at your door
for I ain’t be that person no more

for no reason I’ve been travelling
nowhere I stayed for long
for no reason I’ve been travelling
now I’m travelling home
cause a wayfare needs an ending
and now I’m knocking at your door
for I ain’t be that person no more

many houses I stopped by
many pretty girls I met
many houses I stopped by
disremember what they said
but now those days are over
and I’m knocking at your door
for I ain’t be that person no more

I’ve never been no rich man
not a penny to my name
I’ve never been no rich man
what I own I spend
last dollars on a ticket
and now I’m knocking at your door
for I ain’t be that person no more

I know you deserve better
I know a fool I am
I know you deserve better
let’s start all over again
so I hope you will forgive me
while I’m knocking at your door
for I ain’t be that person no more
Track Name: Flying Shoes
mile by mile I walked this road
mile by mile I have been told
you have to wait for her
you have to wait till she’s back again
bring me my flying shoes
I have to see her again

turn by turn I rolled a dice
turn by turn I lost the price
cannot not think of her
cannot wait till she’s back again
bring me my flying shoes
I have to see her again

word by word I wrote to her
word by word my ink got blurred
can’t hold this goddamn pen
can’t hold it till she’s back again
bring me my flying shoes
I have to see her again

song by song I sang to her
song by song my voice got furred
can’t sing this song no more
can’t sing it till she’s back again
bring me my flying shoes
I have to see her again
Track Name: Cowboy Man
bring me my cowboy
tell him I’m waiting
or else my heart
will go insane
bring me my cowboy
he’s such a fine guy
it does me harm
no words could tell

bring me my cowboy
tell him I’m waiting
or else my heart’s
expecting rain
bring me my cowboy
he’s such a fine guy
it does me harm
no words could tell

and ever since the day he rode off
and our hearts and herds were split in two
and ever since the day he rode off
I am waiting for my cowboy man

with his cattle he keeps trekking
from California to Ohio
and the sand of endless valleys
keeps sticking to his boots
Track Name: I Told My Dog
I told my dog to bark at the man
I told my dog to bark
to bark at the man who got us into trouble
to bark at the man who led into the battles
to bark at the man who killed with no reason
I told my dog to bark

I told my tongue to shout at the man
I told my tongue to shout
to shout at the man who got us into trouble
to shout at the man who led into the battles
to shout at the man who killed with no reason
I told my tongue to shout

I told you once, I told you twice
I hope that you will follow my advice
I told you once, I told you twice
a better world is on the rise

I told my torch to burn the man
I told my torch to burn
Track Name: Weird Place
how can we like the weather?
it keeps changing every day
how to like each other?
everyone feels another way
the world is a weird place

how can we take the burden?
our wills are oh so weak
how to avoid misconception?
everyone thinks another way
the world is a weird place

how can we shed a tear?
they taste different every day
how to find each other?
everyone goes another way
the world is a weird place

and you, you are the only one
who gives sense to my life
and you, you are the only one
who puts a smile on my face
every day
Track Name: What the Rich Said
what did the rich say to the poor?
give me your last shirt and be sure
I’ll come back to take more
that’s what the rich said to the poor

what did the soldier tell his wife?
I’m only killing to survive
so I shoot my enemies down
that’s what the soldier told his wife

what did the pimp say to the bitch?
take your clothes off, make me rich
you were meant to sleep with men
that’s what the pimp said to the bitch

what did the master tell the slave?
take a shovel, dig your grave
you were born to work for me
that’s what the master told the slave

what did the priest say to the folk?
put your money in the poke
it delivers all your sins
that’s what the priest said to the folk

what did the logger tell the trees?
I’ll bring you on your knees
you were grown to fall for me
that’s what the logger told the trees

and the torture just goes on
goes on and on and on
and the torture it just goes on
Track Name: 5 Minutes
five minutes just to show you
how much you mean to me
five minutes just to show you
that you’re my love supreme
five minutes just to show you
how much I long for you

four minutes just to hold you
no one’s ever done before
four minutes just to hold you
the way young lovers do
four minutes just to hold you
as I had always planned to do

three minutes just to tell you
you’re always on my mind
three minutes just to tell you
such true love’s hard to find
three minutes just to tell you
that you’re my favorite one

two minutes just to lead you
to a place you’ve never been
two minutes just to lead you
so far off crime and sin
two minutes just to lead you
into my open arms

one minute just to love you
just the way you are
one minute just to love you
my life-time shooting star
one minute just to love you
before we have to go
Track Name: One Too Many
there’s always one too many car
and one too many train
one too many aircraft
one too many lane
there’s one too many factory
and one too many stack

there’s always one too many soldier
and one too many tank
one too many fighter
one too many combat plane
there’s one too many weapon
and one too many war

there’s always one too many misery
and one too many fear
one too many oppression
one too many tear
there’s one too many bondage
and one too many harm

there’s always one too many prophet
and one too many god
one too many politician
one too many filthy talk
there’s one too many penny
and one too many stock

and it’s a shame, oh it’s a shame
that nothing seems to change
oh what a shame, oh what a shame
oh brothers break the chains

everybody break the chains
Track Name: Nobody Cares
I can’t get up
didn’t wash for weeks
my bones are heavy can’t move my feet
oh there were times they’d come and see
but now nobody
cares ’bout me

wise men they say
wise words and such
but hey they don’t know what really matters
oh there were times they’d come and see
but now nobody
cares ’bout me

just look at me
and mark this well
if you don’t believe
time will tell
oh there were times they’d come and see
but now nobody
cares ’bout me

so folks you listen
to what I say
when you grow old save your money

cause no one knows you
when you’re down and out
and no one holds you
when you’re lost and broke

and now nobody
nobody cares
Track Name: Superpowers
often I’ve been broken
way too long I cried
they say that love is healthy
I know it’s hard to find
and those superpowers
I want you to unlock
I would use them and bring you
a piece of the moon

often I’ve been dreaming
that you was mine and I was yours
but every time I woke up
I learned that dream isn’t true
and those superpowers
I want you to unlock
I would use them and bring you
a piece of the sun

often life’s been a burden
hard enough not to lose track
if someone gave me shelter
I could lay down and rest
and those superpowers
I want you to unlock
I would use them and make you
the happiest person on the globe

but everybody has been passing
and everybody has gone
but everybody has been laughing at me
everybody so long
Track Name: Tiny Bats
everybody’s scared of tiny bats
oh do you know why that is?
and nobody cares
what that is between us

everybody loves fluffy dogs
oh do you know why that is?
and nobody cares
what that is between us

everybody claims
one needs protection
what are you saving me from?
and nobody cares ’bout the thoughts in your head

and everybody eats more than he needs
oh do you know why that is?
and nobody cares
what that is between us

but heaven’s not as close
as people say

and everybody’s scared of tiny bats
oh do you know why that is?
and everybody’s scared of tiny bats
oh do you know ’bout that?
Track Name: Oh Johnny
the rivers, they carry
a lot of stories
Johnny, oh Johnny
tell them to me
all the rivers, they are floating
towards the sea
oh Johnny, stay here with me

how many tears
can the sea take?
how many more stories
can Johnny tell?
all the rivers, they are floating
towards the sea
oh Johnny, stay here with me

darling, oh darling
oh please won’t you cry
the dreams of the rivers
just middle-class lies
all the rivers, they are floating
towards the sea
oh Johnny, stay here with me
