WATCHING THE WORLD GO BY

I’ve heard enough cries
And I’ve heard enough lies
Can’t you see who’s really in need
And who’s just along for the ride?

Watchin’ the world go by
Watchin’ the world go by
There’s more to the picture if you’ve got the eyes
Watchin’ the world
Watchin’ the world go by

I hear the stories they tell
Sounds like heaven but it looks like hell
Who’s to know? Where you gonna go?
Are you just another sucker for the sell? - the big sell yeah!

ˇThe ocean’s are risin’ - No fish in the sea
The poles look to flip - The fall will be free
Dream Jeannie is out - Snakes and ice in the path
One starts to wonder - Who gets the last laugh?
And I’m standin’ and singin’ in the pourin’ rain
I’ve heard about the Buddha it’s all about the pain
Shake up wake up bake up what’s it gonna take up?
A little bit of time time time
Or probably it’s gonna be a little bit more
Like a lotta your time time time
A lotta your lifetimes lifetimes lifetimes lifetimes
You gonna do it over and over and over again
‘Till this dancin’ gonna be alright!

Got my promises to keep
And I’ve got roads to fit my feet
It all goes by in the wink of an eye
In the best line of the week - yeah yeah yeah!

THAT

How do you do what I don’t expect you to do to me?
The lamb of God lies slaughtered and you drink the blood
of Him and Her and me
How do you break
Break so many promises you just can’t seem to keep?
Our only guarantees our faith
How long will it take before you make that leap?

Knock me out on the ground
You want me smilin’ when I come ‘round
On the edge near's the end
And then you still want me to be your friend

After all
That

She’s got that slim back that gentle line flowing
down to her crack
Hypnotize me tantalize me I hypothesize me plans of attack
Look out for decoys evil twins Siamese lovers
So many ways to get burned
The fires of hell burn bright cheap fuel touch lips
You’d think I had learned

Knock me down on my back
Somethin’s crawlin’ in the cracks
Monks and lovers at the ends
Curves in the middle I scream ‘round the bends

After all
That

In time it all gets twisted in vines and old wines
Wounds of my restlessness my consciousness
My heart and soul laying here in these lines...
Soft laughs and sly sighs get you through the nights
You’re not in on the joke
Grab those straws pick those strawberries
Savor what you can
Don’t choke blow a smoke in your yoke

Knock me up make me king
Give me hope and let me sing
The beauty in your eyes so deep
And I have promises I’m gonna keep
So plans you make and devils laugh
What’s the point and where’s the path
And no one’s gonna tell you when
You’ll be back again

After all
After all
After all
After all
After all
After all
After all
That

A COUPLE OF ANGELS

A couple of angels - a couple of angels

Angela, Angela - up in the hills the bells are ringing
Angela - a couple of angels got their wings
Angela, Angela - up in the sky the stars are singing
Angela - a couple of angels got their wings

I’ve been stuck in the city, where the grime and the gritty will blow, blow your mind
It’s in your face, in the get-go, the human race hits a new low, time, time after time

Angela, Angela - these concrete jungle days are ending
Angela - take me to your mountain stream

So much pain in just survivin’ each day
Takin’ on the tough city life
Then you showed me a more natural place
I saw metorites - the most magical moonlight

Angela, Angela - I can hear the good earth callin’
Angela - your mother nature’s callin’ me

I’ve been accused, I’ve been knocked down been abused and I’ve had it up to here with all of that
And when I see that sweet smile in your eyes all the while that’s where I wanna be - that’s where it’s at

Angela, Angela - up in the hills the bells are ringing
Angela - a couple of angels got their wings
Angela, Angela - up in the sky the stars are singing
Angela - a couple of angels got their wings

A couple of angels - a couple of angels

IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE

Down, down, down
All you do is put me down my friend
You accuse me of all these things
That I never did begin

It takes one to know one
And I don’t know nothin’ about it

Lies, lies, lies
Nobody can identify - just you
Can’t you hear where your echos go?
Don’t you see what you do you do you do?

I know it sounds crazy
A little insane
But with a little luck
You might make it back in the game

Turn, turn, turn
You can have your heaven or your hell
Just remember what seems outside
Is what’s inside yourself
