Track Name: Crazy Sara
what ever happened to crazy sara
u know she aint that crazy no more
another night upon the rooftop
another morning on the floor
what ever happened to big daddy
do you still remember his song
another night upon the rooftop
when we all used to get along

tell me, tell me (does it really matter?)
hold me, hold me (through the night)
why you so crazy?

what ever happend to the river
you can taste it all night long
riding up and down the highway
tryin to write the perfect song

nights on the rooftop
days in the sun
waiting to sarah
to come

what ever happened to the jokers
they used to run that body shop
running through the cemetary
you can hear a needle drop
what ever happened to big daddy
we still remember his song
another night upon the rooftop
when we all used to get along
Track Name: Luna's Blues
I wanna go out in the street and dance in the rain
tell your sister to forget my name
make my way across the town
wont go back till the sun go down

white moon on your chest
in your kingdom i was your guest
now i cry all night at the open door
sky clear and i wait for rain to pour

yeah, alright alright

well it must have been the rain
or the whistle on a lonesome train
cause i know you had to choose (i know u had
to choose)....Luna's Blues

yeah, alright alright

7 days of the working week
over my shoulder whisper in my ear
lift up the carpet and i take a peek
say what you want and you disappear

gone like a ghost like smoke from a fire
the membership card already expired
out there a war is spinning its tires
goin to temple gonna sing in the choir (sing in the choir)

yeah, alright alright
Track Name: Turn out the Light
winter is coming to an end
here comes spring up around the bend
let's drink some tea sit around the fire
your company is my one desire

melody melody in my head
got to listen to what you said
to the ocean come the river
to you myself i will deliver

turn out the light
and tell me you love me
play some nick drake on the stereo

turn out the light
and tell me you love me
we can talk all night
turn out the light

melody melody in my head
got to listen to what you said
like a cat on a windowsill
lookin out across that hill

melody melody in my head
melody melody in my head
melody melody in my head....
Track Name: The Lost Camel
Today I feel my power
Like a lion in his den
traded in my rifle
for a notebook and a pen

is freedom an illusion
a halloween disguise
i aim for the enemy
right between the eyes

listen to the generals
ordinary men
stood beside my brothers
and i remember them

lift you up, from the sand, take my hand, take
my hand

alone in the desert
a hard man cry
you can accuse the captive
but the captive deny
Track Name: Jump the Track
u don't know where you're going
till u get there
u don't know where you been
till u get back

u don't know what you're holding
till u let go
u don't know how to move
till u jump the track

[well u come too far, no need to fall apart and break a fragile heart in two, don't say au revoir, no need to fall apart and only mend a foolish heart for you]

u don't how to free
till u been oppressed
u don't know what to say
till it's been said
u don't know how to pray till u been blessed
u don'y know how to live till u been dead
Track Name: We Carry the Stone
we carry a stone
we made it home
we ride our camel to the dawn

we fight the fight
and we are right
live a thousand lifetimes every night

so listen my friend
someday your battle will end
no new world order
no concrete border
you won't ride alone
we carry the stone

we make no sound
we lost and found
we rode our camel to the dawn
we travel light
we hold the night
we burn the fire till its gone

we make no sound
we lost and found
we rode our camel

we make no sound
we lost and found
we rode our camel
Track Name: No Return
ay, ay , ay , ay

i no speak english
i no comprende
in no deposit and i no return

i no have room to rent
i no have government


read the paper and watch tv
no need to rescue me (i no politico)

. . . . . . .

i no have land
i no demand
i no fear
of empty hand

i no have shape
i no escape
i walk on desert sand

one love one family
no need to resue me ( i no politico)
i no politico refugee
what do you want of me

i no politico

ay yay

now listen close

i no the future and i no the past
no more of the future is less of the past
i know a fire on day will burn
i no return
i no return

one love one family
no need to resue me
i no politico refugee
what do you want of me

what do u want, what do you want, what do you want of me?
Track Name: Blues for Monty
i treated you right
you treated me wrong
i stayed up all night
and i wrote you this song

well it might sound cliche,
but it comes around and it goes around
and its got that sound you know

u heard i been talking to everyone
bout the things you do
trashing your name all over town
well you dont need my help
you speak well for yourself
so tell me know, what can you say?

sometimes i laugh like you, you do
sometimes i cry, like a child, its true
well it might sound cliche...

u heard i been falling on the floor
flippin out in the car
throwin mud at the door
well let me tell ya straight
you're a little too late
cause theres nothing left, nothing left to break
Track Name: One on One
empty your pockets
empty your gun
empty your heart
when it weights a ton

u got to be joking
like a fool
something is broken
how cruel

one on one...u wanna run

empty your secret
empty your soul
empty your pockets
of what you stole

empty man, loose hand
shifty eye, like the desert sand

one on one...one on one...
Track Name: Honey Dragon
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Hey hey honey got a dragon to feed
your body of water is water i need
hey hey honey got a dragon to ride
come row boat and feel the evening tide
the rollin of the tide
i wanna feel the tide, the rollin of the tide

[honey dragon, you're my honey dragon, tell me where u wanna go]

hey hey honey got a dragon for you
your body needs love and its overdue
hey hey honey please stay a while
well if you're leaving in a hurry
then please leave me your smile
your wide eye smile

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Track Name: Ten Steps
smoked the last cigarette waitin for the train
wonder when its gonna, gonna come again
still see the blue shadows underneath your eyes
oh, honey, how u hypnotize

save your nickel for a rainy day,
made a hole in the pocket where it all drained away
carry those letters like a bottle of pills,
spill them out when the dark night kills

northbound train to mexico
where corn is high and the sun is low
hop hop record on a holiday...holiday
empty pockets and a lighter load,
ten steps from the station,
ten steps to the station...to the road

east of sidney, highway closed
might take all night to get back home
so many times along the road
lookin for u, stayin out of the cold

save your nickel for a rainy day
made a hole in the pocket where it all drained away
carry those songs like a bottle of pills,
spill them out when the dark night kills

northbound train....
