Long Journey Home

Lyrics for album “Long Journey Home”

At the Water’s Edge

Don’t you dare pretend like you know how it was when you were hardly around
Schizophrenic sobriety left my life ablaze now I’m struggling which is up and which is down searching for the middle ground
Lost love hope strength truth faith and all my belief I still taste our battle ground
Your inconsistency entangles me in suicide sometimes I dream of watching you drown searching for the middle ground
I’m standing at the water’s edge should I jump in and trust you again
Oh I’m standing at the water’s edge are you foe or are you friend
You are the one kissed my eyes and bruised my spine you stole my voice and gave me sound and as our demons deal on this new day don’t fall apart I hurt because I need you around
I hurt I need you around searching for the middle ground
I’m standing at the water’s edge should I jump in and trust you again
Oh I’m standing at the water’s edge are you foe or are you friend
Upon my shelf in a golden frame three smiles a hopeless dream
Cigarettes and baseball games summer’s joy followed by pain
And I would have done anything but bottles and miles stood in between
Now I’m older I’m trying to see that you did your best you did your best you did your best for me
Yah!
Standing at the water’s edge should I jump in and trust you again
I’m standing at the water’s edge are you foe or are you friend
Are you foe or are you friend
Are you foe or are you friend
I’m standing at the middle ground

Sing Liberty

Blood flows under a broken bridge as a screaming man lies in the ditch
Acid smoke burns out his eyes his orphaned child begins to cry
Destiny a convenient word in a situation so absurd
The loss of love is never sweet if you miss their hugs Sing Liberty Oh Liberty
I’m a member of the human race I don’t unite with war’s disgrace
Homes are filled with empty beds less one too many dead
Our founding father’s written words were crafted to protect the herds
Not promote this tyranny believe in hope and Liberty Sing Liberty
With a foot in the grave and a boot in the past your life goes by way to fast
What you cant take you leave behind stop wasting your precious time
Who are we to play god? Doesn’t it seem a little odd?
End spiritual poverty with all your soul Sing Liberty, Oh Liberty
Genocide in the name of peace this war is made and fueled by greed
Criminal leaders control your mind with news TV don’t be blind
Black gold and blood diamonds they’ll trade your life to feed their sons
Don’t hide but storm the streets if you’re alive Sing Liberty Sing that Liberty
Ignorance will hold you down your given a voice to make some sound
If you don’t like it but still bow down well jester you bow to their crown
Don’t turn your head and say you’ll pray open your eyes and lead the way
Only cowards accept defeat when the world needs heroes and Liberty Oh Sing that Liberty
And Stand up put your hands together
Make some noise for one another Love is the seed for peace
Oh stand up and stand together
Put your arms round one another Peace is the fruit of love love love love
And Stand up put your hands together
Make some noise for one another Love is the seed for peace
Oh stand up put your arms together
Put your arms round one another Peace is the fruit of love love love love
Lets spread our love not kill each other
It’s not worth our sons or my little brother
Only peace can bring peace
Stand up Stand up Stand up Stand up Stand up Stand up

Tears from God

Hopes barren waste thorny dried up and rotting now blooms brightly like botanical gardens no longer skeletal forests
Nestled in your arms you erode my hurt and broken trust
Filling up my life with your sunshine kisses in morning light
Like tears from God
Soft cherub sweeter than peaches soaked in cream your laughter fills me up such a life giving spring let it pour all over me
Nestled in your arms you erode my hurt and broken trust
Filling up my life with your sunshine kisses in morning light
Nestled in your arms you erode my hurt and broken trust
Filling up my life with your sunshine kisses in morning light
Like tears like tears from God

All My Life

All my life I’ve loved you so I promise not to let you go
No no no no no All of my life
Insecure without your love with little confidence
I’ve tried to hide for all these years how much I need you friend
Fel apart when I lost you almost went insane
Sex, drugs, alcohol, but nothing killed the pain
All my life I’ve loved you so I promise not to let you go
No no no no no All of my life
All my life I’ve loved you so I promise not to let you go
No no no no no All of my life
You looked me in my eyes and said I’m sorry for the ways
I’ve treated you but I’ve loved you every single day
You picked me up when I fell down tried to ease my pain
Said my boy please don’t cry everything’s OK
Of my life I’ve loved you so I promise not to let you go
No no no no no All of my life
I’ll love you when you’re not strong I’ll love you your not alone
I’ll love you everyday and night I’ll love you all of my life
All my life I’ve loved you so I promise not to let you go
No no no no no All of my life

Coconut Song

City living no it aint for me too many problems not enough trees
Sitting under them coconut trees little monkey please don’t throw your nuts at me
Wish that I could live be the sea with my little love muffin laying next to me
Mangoes papaya and plenty nookie oh my goodness I need my love with me
Watch the sun rise up to the sky like a big ‘ol ball of fire in my eye
Cinnamon-bun cafecita in hand Costa Rica got the tastiest blend
City living no it aint for me too many problems not enough trees
Sitting under them coconut trees little monkey please don’t throw your nuts at me
Blue skies and mist from the sea only need a little breeze to comfort me
Fresh fish the catch of the day a crab in the pot and sun every day
Baby she got the sweetest tooth always sucking on cocoa and dem sugar canes too
If she could she make a house out of cake you know she love the way organic taste
City living no it aint for me too many problems not enough trees
Sitting under them coconut trees little monkey please don’t throw your nuts at me
In the evening time when the sun go away kinkajou come out cause him like to play
We be swingin in the hammock right above the sand pina colada and fire in hand
Lifted we be bopping to calypso vibes can’t wait to take baby home grind her inside
Hot and humid real sticky sex I got no worries gold bond puts the itch to rest
City living no it aint for me too many problems not enough trees
Sitting under them coconut trees little monkey please don’t throw your nuts at me
City living no it aint for me too many problems not enough trees
Sitting under them coconut trees little monkey please don’t throw your nuts at me

Here We Are

So here we are without moonlight
And still it is such a beautiful night
The sweetest gifts come when you don’t try
And I never thought I’d find you that night
When I look at you I see white light
We’ve been through pain and conquered fright
Traveled the world to become whole
I like to dream I’ll hold you when we’re old
So here we are my love one day we’ll melt away
Our time is short till dust and clay
Let’s trade our shackles for butterfly wings
There’s a big ‘ol world for you and me
And there’s one thing I love and that’s your soul
When I’m with you I lose control
I’ve never been allowed to be
But when I’m with you I’m free and complete
At time’s I’m scared to take a chance
In fact I tend to run away
Maybe you and I could make romance
Oh, maybe if we can learn to stay
So here we are my love one day we’ll melt away
Out time is short till dust and clay
Let’s trade our shackles for butterfly wings
There’s a big ‘ol’ world out there for you and me
And here we are what’s the point if we can’t play
Take my hand and let’s fly away
Let’s trade our shackles for butterfly wings
There’s a big ‘ol world out there for you and me
So here we are
Oh here we are
Oh here we are

We Will

Greedy wolves will steal your meat in your shadow they bear their teeth
Around and around and around until you’re weak
Pale-faced victim of the machine drop your worry just follow me
Fear will bite stand up and fight get off your knees
We will stand up
We will stand up
One thing that’s real uncertainty never know what the wind will bring
Dependency on another’s feed will make you meek
Pigs feast leaving you on the street but with our numbers they cannot defeat
Every beating and bleeding heart deserves to eat
We will stand up
We will we will we will
We will stand up
Mountains spew your ire Friends our strength will take us higher
I once saw a dove fly with burning wings
Within your heart I see a fire within your heart I know desire
Burning brighter than a thousand stars
Ooooo oooo ooo
Ooooo oooo ooo
Ooooo oooo ooo
Ooooo oooo ooooooo
Freedom bleeds across our land what’s a few dollars gonna do in the end
Crows chewing loans State raping homes and stealing lands
Uncle Sam got his boot on your face futures written in a figure eight
Don’t prove fear right stand up and fight break the gate
We must stand up
We Must we must
We must stand up
Oh yes we will, we will stand up

Baby Blue

Turn over a blade of grass and watch your pain fade away
If you close your wings I’ll invite you to stay
It’s not always easy to show how much I care
But I cherish the moments that you are near
My love will never fade
For my baby blue bay bay bay be blue
You caress my soul and it brings me joy to say
That I am so proud to call you my friend
My love will never fade
For my baby blue bay bay baby blue
I want to get lost in your
I am blessed to have you in my life when we share love and even when we fight
I am blessed to have you in my life when we share love and even when we fight
You’re my baby blue bay bay baby blue
