You Are Here

Will We Ever Learn

Now’s not the time

I have my reasons

Now’s not the time

I’m sure you have yours

Take back what’s mine

I don’t really need this

You’re dressed in white

But far from pure

 

Stop being afraid

Your friends were once strangers

Stop being afraid

They’ll eat you alive

Plastic men

Read magazines and scriptures

You’re covered in grease

But I bet you taste nice

 

I have nothing left to prove

I have nothing left to prove

 

I have nothing to prove, nothing to lose

Nothing to give, I gave it to you

 

All for you

We must wait our turn

Will we ever learn?

 

Stations

Oh mama

Ain’t got time to fall to pieces

He has arrived

Led by the grace of God go I

I don’t know what they mean

I don’t know what they mean

And I say

 

Oh father

Now I can’t believe you’re leaving

Seen through your eyes

Led by the grace of God go I

I don’t know what they mean

I don’t know what they mean

And I say

 

I hear the rapture’s coming

They say he’ll be here soon

Right now there’s demons crawling all around my room

They say he lives within me

They say for me he died

And now I hear his footsteps almost every night

 

Oh children

This is where they come to take me

Away from here

I don’t know what they mean

I don’t know what they mean

I don’t know what they mean

And I say

 

It Is What It Is

I will never be all that I can be here

All I really want is a little bit more

Should I turn it up? Am I loud and clear?

Take a good look; I’m walking out of that door

The word on the street is that you’re our captain

Head to the ships! All aboard!

It’s you and me in this dueling battle

I won’t be done until your blood’s on my sword

 

It is what it is

It is not this

What’s hidden up your sleeve?

If you keep it up you’re no better than him

Choose wisely your enemy

 

Boys will be boys; I agree to disagree

When you grow up, I hope you’re bigger than me

Live it up, give it up, you want to be free

Sing your song: Hail to the Chief

I’m only looking forward; there’s no turning back

There’s a hole in my heart but the knife’s in my back

 

It is what it is, it is not this

What’s hidden up your sleeve

If you keep it up your no better than him

Choose wisely your enemy

 

If you could only see me now

I surely hope I made you proud

If you could only see me

if you could only see me

If you could only see me now

 

It is what it is

It is not this

What’s hidden up your sleeve?

If you keep it up you’re no better than him

Choose wisely your enemy

 

Look Alive

Tell yourself but no one else

Only to look back

Would Jesus agree with the truth you preach

While we raise our flags

 

Look alive, look alive

I’ve arrived, I’ve arrived

 

Explain to me life’s mysteries

You’re always on my mind

Forever in debt, we’d be better off dead

The wicked lead the blind

The bigger you are, the harder we’ll fall

No it’s not a crime

 

Look alive, look alive

I’ve arrived, I’ve arrived

 

Tick-tock, a slave to the clock

Never say never

It never will stop

 

No Way To Know

My baby don’t treat me like she should

If mama only loved me like a mother could

Then maybe I would grow up

Be her perfect son

But there’s no way to know

 

Please read me the letter that you wrote last night

The pencil’s in your hand; there’s no pen in sight

If only I could read in between the lines

We’ve got a long way to go

 

All we need is a miracle

God damn these chemicals

Why don’t you just leave me alone?

All we need is a miracle

God damn these chemicals

Why can’t I just leave them alone?

 

Where’s Michael?

Find Michael

Tell Michael

I’m not Michael

 

All we need is a miracle

God damn these chemicals

Why don’t you just leave me alone?

All we need is a miracle

God damn these chemicals

Why can’t I just leave them alone?

 

Never Meant To Be

Was it you that I heard singing?

Was it you that left me behind?

No I’ll never forget just what she said

To me last night

 

Please help me count my blessings

Be careful of the demons inside

They are mine, not yours

So put down your swords

They’re mine to fight

 

It was never, never meant to be

It was never, never meant to be

 

Let’s go for a walk, my darling

There’s no need to talk, my dear

She took a hard look at me

And that’s when I could see

I had nothing left to fear

 

It was never, never meant to be

It was never, never meant to be

 

Believe it or not, this is all that I got

I don’t want it now

 

It was never, never meant to be

It was never, never meant to be

 

Am I The Only One Who Can See Me?

Hold on tight for your dear life

The best has yet to come

You’re not ordinary, I’m not quite

Sure what I have become

So wave your hands and say goodbye

I’m heading towards the sun

Leave this town, leave you behind

Forget me I am done

 

Am I the only one who can see me?

 

Take my seat look up to see

The endless blinding night

My trajectory a waveless sea

Invisible silent light

I’m finally home watch my skin glow

You begin to come to grips

Summoned by stars we’re worlds apart

I’ve arrived on my silver ship

 

Am I the only one who can see me?

I’m the only one who can see me.

 

Still

Did you ever believe in us?

Long ago you abandoned us

I still love you

I still love you

Anyway

 

Where were you when the preachers judged?

Where were you when they questioned us?

I still love you

I still love you

Anyway
Everything is right, it’s wrong

In your arms is where I belong

I don’t love you

I don’t love you

Not today

 

Oh my God

Where did we go wrong?

There was never, never, never

Only one

 

You were right; I should have known

I swear I’ll leave you alone

Still I wonder

Still I wonder

Who’s to blame

 

Because of you we spilled our blood

I’m wide awake; I’m not getting up

Please believe me

Please believe me

What I say

 

All I want is to lift you up

Are my hands strong enough?

Does it matter?

Does it matter?

Anyway

 

Borrowed Time

Tell me where are you going

Tell me where have you been

The Devil and God are singing

Such beautiful songs in my head

One sings of salvation

The other sings of sin

There’s nothing left worth believing

I believe in myself instead

 

I know exactly who you are

If our love should fail to grow

I will take back my heart

 

No one said this would be easy

As you bury your head in your hands

I’m hoping that you still see me

Like the day when we first met

Lets get this show on the road now

We both know it’s for the best

If only for a moment

All good things must come to an end

Should have told you where I was going

Should have told you where I have been

Now the Devil and God are laughing

While these thoughts race through my head

 

I know exactly who you are

If our love should fail to grow

I will take back my heart

 

I will take back my heart

I will take back my heart

I will take back my heart

 

I know exactly who you are

If our love should fail to grow

I will take back my heart

 

I Am Here

I am here

I am strong

No one can take that away

 

I am here

I am strong

I am no one I am no one

I am here

I belong

No one can take that away

You are here

You belong

No one can take you away

 

Have a pleasant tomorrow

A pleasant tomorrow

It’s where I’m going

You can’t follow

 

I’m unknown

A Pleasant Tomorrow

Which Side Are You On?

This government had an idea

And parliament made it law

It seems like it’s illegal

To fight for the union any more

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

 

We set out to join the picket line

For together we cannot fail

We got stopped by police at the county line

They said, “Go home boys or you’re going to jail”

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

 

I’m Going to make it right

I’m Off to choose my side

I’m going to make it right

Or else ill lose my mind

 

It’s hard to explain to a crying child

Why her Daddy can’t go back

So the family suffer

But it hurts me more

To hear a scab say Sod you, Jack

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys

Which side are you on?

 

I’m bound to follow my conscience

And do whatever I can

But it’ll take much more than the union law

To knock the fight out of a working man

 

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

Which side are you on, boys?

Which side are you on?

 

I’m Going to make it right

I’m Off to choose my side

I’m going to make it right

Or else ill lose my mind

 

It's Not Okay

Play for keeps and take your place there is no purpose there is nothing to gain

Why you telling yourself it’s not okay

Question everything your told erase your head now lose control

I’m still telling myself it’s not okay

As we march in circles waiting for change

Throw away your crystal ball the future lies within us all

No ones listening now it’s all a mistake get out of my head Mr. Consequence

You’re no longer needed it’s too soon to forget,

No ones listening now to what you have to say.

As we march in circles waiting for change.

 

Kumbaya someone’s laughing, Kumbaya someone’s crying,

Kumbaya someone’s praying, Kumbaya I am singing.

 

Demand respect with a microphone pay attention to me do as your told

I’m afraid to think of what you might say

The truth will come your ears will bleed the stories you tell me of tragedy

I’m afraid to blink I’m living day to day

As we march in circles waiting for change

 

It’s one more happy ending please I’m begging you God I’m on my knees

Why are you telling yourself it’s not okay

The story was over this song was sung I did the best the best that I could

I’m still telling myself it’s not okay

As we march in circles waiting for change.

 

No More

It’s too much to much I’m calling

It’s too little to late to hide

I wont be the one that falling left behind

I see what no ones seeing there is no shame no shame to fight

Take a look the earth is bleeding worlds collide.

 

No more make war, tell me what you’re fighting for

The bridges will burn the point of no return

Make war no more tell me who’s keeping score,

The bridges will burn the point of no return.

 

You’re in no condition to tell me what it’s all about

The life that we are wasting walk so proud.

Should I say what no ones saying listen up as I keep quiet

Take a look the earth is still bleeding worlds collide.

 

Promise me it’s not going to end this way

Today is not going to be the day.

 

Free From You

Nobody knows I never intended to go show me the roads where I shall roam

I will survive I will survive the night

Down below under the earth the sun the sky the moon

Rise to the east the sun will prove

I have survived the night I have survived the night.

 

Free from you I am certain I am free from truth

Run for your life but leave no clues

No one can find no one can find what’s mine

 

It’s a hard hard life I wont compromise

It’s a hard hard life we’re running out of time

 

Surround me and take a look for yourself the human race

Not even you no one is safe

We try and we try we try to place the blame

When nothings as it seems open your eyes only to see
The best things in life they do come free

We buy and we buy there is nothing I don’t need

 

Congratulations son you proved me wrong job well done

Follow your heart it leads to love

I am alive my god I’m alive it’s right.

 

Leave it all behind leave it all behind walk away.

 

You Can Run

Educate intimidate each story has two sides

Black gold take control, did you read between the lines

Under penalty of perjury you signed away your rights

You’re nothing more so settle the score the numbers never lie

There is no where left to go do or die

 

You talk the talk can you walk the walk

Actions speak louder the words

Gather the men to sell them the plans no ones the wiser I’m sure

Duty calls lets have a ball the time of our life what’s yours

I appreciate if you’d open the gates, one by one will burn

There is no where left to go do or die

 

I will stand beside you, together we will unite
Their all out to get you you can run but you can’t hide

 

When 9 to 5 is not enough to survive

It was all for nothing I’ve learned

Collect your check from the government to the end of the line good sir

You’re on your own worked to the bone walk right into their trap

With temptation comes greed, hungry mouths to feed everyones under attack

Hope you had your fun pick up your guns, there’s nothing left to confess

Give your wife a kiss say good bye to the kids save your prayers save your breath

You belong to me your my property the only way out is death.

When their is no where left to go do or die.

 

Black Crow Blues

Oh babe, don’t lie lonesome after I’m gone

Don’t mourn your young life away

Just lower me down with a prayer and a song

Just ‘fore the breaking of day

Just ‘fore the breaking of day

 

It’s a life worth the living, but we all have to die

All your crying won’t do me no good

Lower me down with a quick said goodbye

Pour in the black Texas mud

Pour in the black Texas mud

 

It’s a hard road you’re travelin’, you can’t walk it alone

Find a big man to stand beside you

Take him down to the river please show him my bones

Tell him, there lies a friend I once knew

There lies a friend I once knew

 

The black crow’s a-screaming, the yellow sun’s warm

The grass tumbles tall down the hill

There’s a cold wind is blowing, it’s bringin’ a storm

When the call of the black crow goes still

When the call of the black crow goes still

 

Anywhere But Here

Dear God what have I done it’s all gone wrong

Blame me no one needs to suffer this long

It’s to late wouldn’t you know it’s misunderstood

If I could change it all you know that I would

 

Tell me why you wont look in my eyes

Tell me why the earth she cries

 

Aim high get low who are you going to tell

Did you pay the price I don’t need your help

I knew all along tomorrows not gone

Move fast prepare yourself here we come

 

Take me anywhere but here it’s fine

Anywhere but here is alright

 

Break free come clean when push comes to shove

No one seems to know what your running from

I can’t help myself it must be nice

To live unaware now is not the time

We are not losing touch it’s sink or swim

only the strong survive I hope you’re not him

 

Dear God what have I done, Tell me who is the guilty one

Dear God it’s all gone it’s all wrong it’s all done.

 

The Devil And Me

No I don’t know how he knows but the devil surely knows my name

Now I’ll go and rest my bones, find my certain fate

At war for my soul with a heart of gold no ones here to say

Three kind words now I’m pure I’ll rest in peace

 

Go away go away I’m afraid it’s time to go

I want to stay I want to stay it’s to late I want your soul
What’s your fate?

 

Take your final breath alone with death now were face to face

Awaken my soul to each his own on Judgement day

Hold your crucifix in the fiery pits heaven in hells domain

Original sin tell me who is going to win my eternal flame

 

Free I am free I am free I’m not everybody
Please please believe I am me I’m not anybody.

 

In the Night

Don’t go home all is quiet in the night

We wont go down with out a fight

Bite your tongue all is silent in the night

Hold my hand bring me to life

It is oh so cold I am naked in the night

It is oh so cold I am forsaken in the night

You left me with out a light

 

Don’t let go hold on to me

I wont let go hold on to me

Don’t let go hold on to me

I wont let go hold on to me

I wont.

 

Meet me here let no one see you in the light

Come alone we’ll make things right

Don’t go home all is quiet in the night

We wont go down with out a fight

 

The Alpha Male is Dead

It’s man versus man come back tomorrow lets do this again

Lets rape this this land take what we want with out consequence

What’s your master plan the future begins it ends with him

Watch it all collapse beneath your feet is a castle made of sand

 

You keep coming back only to hear the devil she laughs

Lets face the facts it takes one to know one lets leave it at that

Recognize the past her story repeats as the cycle begins

Watch it all collapse beneath your feet is a castle made of sand

 

Take as you please, I want it

It’s more then you will ever need, don’t tempt me

Take it away all this greed you put in my head

 

Divided in half split it in two from first to last

An equal chance take your share move onto the next

There’s nothing left devour it all put it all to a rest

Watch it all collapse beneath your feet is a castle made of sand

 

The Alpha male is dead, it’s all in my head.

 

How Much Longer

So here I am where will you be as I wait for the man to come set me free

Now we wait how much longer for this man you said walked on water

Don’t walk away

 

On my grave is where I stand I’m looking down at the promised land

I bid farewell on Judgement day I will be brave I hear the angels sing

All the angels sing

 

Hallelujah with death my birth has come, hallelujah

 

The hours come there is no escape I walk alone I wont be late

Will you see me off as I leave there is no need to worry I have made my peace

I made my peace

 

Can you please remember me I found my man he sets me free

We’re hand in hand as we walk away I’m coming home now I will sing
I will sing

 

Hallelujah with death my birth has come
