Track Name: heavens open
Heaven's Open

It's the same head on different legs
much the same in every room
Spanish ships on gold rush
trip the light fantastic silver spoon.
all to feed the dough we knead
the excessive greed of the opulent
we're laying down for half a crown
and giving into dollars and cents
and it makes no sense it makes no sense
and it makes no sense it makes no sense
heaven is open heaven is open
heaven is open heaven is open
secret eyes on passerby's
reflect the colors that tell us lies
under the gun bow to the one
who swears he is his fathers son
Mary Mary so contrary how did you garden grow
at the gate you sealed our fate
we watch the worm in the apple grow
and it made no sense
it made no sense it made no sense.
let the rain come down and wash it all away
let the rain come down and wash it all away
let the rain come down and wash it all away
it makes sense ..he comes the censor
it makes sense he comes the censor
makes sense here comes the censor
makes sense here comes the censor
let the rain come down
let the heavens open …….
Track Name: lay it down
lay it down
Mary Mary was the neighbors girl, she broke her mothers heart
she ran away with a shoplifting boy, tore the little family apart
I see her walking round the town her children they're all grown
the shoplifting boy he is long gone ,Mary Mary lives all alone
couldn't lay it down , couldn't lay that burden down
couldn't turn it around ,never laid her burden down .
Little Anthony was in my class , we sat together everyday.
he drew the finest pictures I'd ever seen,
it's like those birds would get up and fly away .
he was eleven years old when his mother died
those little birds they turned black
twenty years later pass him on the street , still carries that world on his back.
couldn't lay down ,never laid that burden down
couldn't lay it down , never laid that burden down .
everybody knows somebody who knows somebody with a broken heart
everybody knows that somebody who tore somebodies world apart
when a day becomes a week a month a year and they're still leaving there
turn it around
if a day becomes a week a month a year and you're still leaving there
lay that burden down ..lay it down lay it down
lay that burden down ..lay it down lay it down
lay you're burden down
Track Name: my old man's a lust man
my old mans a lust man

hello hello hello how the hell are you
you wont remember this ,is was back in 82
I was pushing a broom across the bankers floor
you were polishing the handle on the bankers door
I'd never seen it polished like that before
I think Im in love and you'll never know
Hello hello I have to go .
give it up give it up
give it up give it up
lust was never enough for me, lust is dangerous and temporary
lust was never enough for me, lust is dangerous and temporary
(i truly love you)
lust was never
lust well never be enough for me .
Hello hello hello I'm back again
you may not remember this. I was your boyfriends best friend
I was laying on the sofa he was laying on the floor
you were blowing him kisses from the bedroom door
I'd never seen kisses like the before
I think I'm in love but you'll never know .
Hello hello I have to go
Lust would never be enough for me lust is dangerous and temporary
Lust would never be enough for me ,lust is dangerous and temporary
lust would never .lust would never lust would never be enough for me
Lust will never (I truly love you )
He was a man of few words my father ,didn't say much
didn't really get involved at all, but he did tell me this
Lust is dangerous and temporary ..
Track Name: the land of milk and honey
The land of milk and honey

in the land of milk and honey I wear gold shoes on my feet
I live in the big house up town I'm eating all that I can eat .
In the land of milk and honey I drive a real fast car.
I sit and count my money all day, got my name pinned to a star .
but if the cow goes crazy and the milk runs dry
and the bees leave town nothing left in the hive
you wont see me running around not knowing what to do
I don't need nothing else but you …
in the land of milk and honey

In the land of milk and honey,I could wish for anything
I could lay out in the sun all day and tell the birds what to sing
In the land of milk and honey I don't really need a thing
I'm getting all the loving I can get the queen treats me like a King
so if the cow goes crazy and the milk runs dry
and the bees leave down nothing left in the hive
I wont be running around not knowing what to do
I don't need nothing else but you …
in the land of milk and honey .
in the land of milk and honey
be my baby be my baby yea
be my baby be my baby yea .
Track Name: that's what we do
Sunday morning up before the birds

I'll get some breakfast on for my girls

lazy day nothing to do 
sun is up and the sky so blue
what shall we do aha 

what shall we do

what shall we do 
what shall we do

we might go walking down by the sea 

or build a house up in a tree 

we'll probably run a marathon

we've all got our running shoes on
that's what we'll do aha 

yes that's what we do

yes that's we do aha 
yes that's what we do

we like to count the grass in the park

or pull the teeth out of a shark

find hidden treasure buried underground

at Quaker meeting we don't make a sound

that's what we'll do aha 

yes that's what we do
yes that's we do aha 

yes that's what we do

Sunday morning up before the birds

we're so happy in our little world

lazy days nothing to do 

sun is up and the sky so blue.

that's what we do aha

yes that's what we do 

yes that's what we do aha 

yes that's what we do

that's what we do aha 

yes that's what we do

yes that's what we do aha 

yes that's what we do

"so I'm thinking skydiving"

"yes skying diving sounds great"

"and mounting climbing"

Track Name: reunion
reunion

at the family reunion
there's lots of love and a little rage
everybody gets to sing there favorite song
everybody gets to be center stage
They'll be singing My Guy ,Devil Woman let me be
South of the Border ,You turned the tables on me.
too ra loo ra laddy
too ra loo ra lay
too ra loo ra laddy
it feels like yesterday
too ra loo ra laddy
too ra loo ra lye
too ra loo ra lady
my child hood lullaby

going back to your mommy's house
with a bottle of whiskey and the carry out
arm in arm across monument road
and the big man sings a "jug of punch"
from the candy store on the corner
to the chapel on the hill
I hear those ten guitars gentle play
she wears my ring .
I heard you sing the blackboard of my heart
and the chances are , its all in the game .
your song remains the same .
They'll be singing My Guy ,Devil Woman let me be
South of the Border ,You turned the tables on me.
too ra loo ra laddy
too ra loo ra lay
too ra loo ra laddy
it feels like yesterday
too ra loo ra laddy
too ra loo ra lye
too ra loo ra lady
my child hood lullaby
Track Name: first last (do you know you're God)
first last (do you know you're God )

here she comes here she comes
all dressed like a winters night
freezing the breath in my lungs
holding so tight holding so tight
here she come here she comes

I say
you can't be here for me
there must be some mistake
I'm feeling kind of optimistic today
there must be some one else you can take
you can't be here for me no you cant be here for me.
there 's all kind of darkness here
it not easy to lay down with your fears
with your fears
so as the darkness grows
and the light you know disappears
I say…..

do you know your God
do you know you're God
do you know your God
do you know you're God
