Track Name: Stone me
Stone me
Stone me
Crucified Messiah
Nothing less explicit begins to explain
The thunder of the tempest
Wrapped inside the rage

Staring down the final destination
Through the smoke of complicit depradation
When you receive a foreign delegation
Unannounced an act of desperation
You should a' seen the state of degradation
Blow by blow the god of fornication
Pleasure hounds fixed upon elation
In a trance of fog and medication
Baby born short of full gestation
Is it real or my imagination
That the walls are falling down?

I had to leave before the demonstration
Democratic diluted derivation
No absolutes all interpretation
Q and A TV interrogation
Tinder dry bush fire conflagration
Standing there before self immolation
And then I go and fall in love
And the game will change
Cos' we all got skin in the game
An' I pray for my children
Hey

It's hot in here need better ventilation
Apocalyptic terror fascination
Landscape cries for full emancipation
From the waves' roaring aggravation
From the hordes chanting psalms of desolation
Coming from the book of revelation
Serendipity invalidation
I'm hoping for some rehabilitation
Cry out for the land of the free
Not to lament but to enter in
Enter in
Track Name: Time For The Revolution
Hey
Time for the revolution
Time for the journey to end
Time for the new beginning
For the heartache to mend

Hey
Time for jubilation
Your debts a' all been paid
Conflict not forever
War no longer waged

Lay me down
Lay me down
And hide me hide me
Till the revolution comes
For I'm a rebel
I'm an outlaw
So hide me hide me
Till the revolution comes

Hey
Time for consolation
Righteous waves across the sea
The desolation of destruction
Cast into the furnace will be

Hey
Time for emancipation
The chains are all unlocked
The ships no longer sailing
Smashed upon the rock

Lay...
Track Name: Crystal Eyes
Softly falling down in the winter
Rest upon and clothe the mountain side
Washed away by the springtime rainfall
Soon it will be time to say goodbye
Crystal eyes

Have you seen the treasure of the snowflake?
Each one special in the makers mind
Have you seen the cheek of my true love?
Like the sugar coated mountain side
Crystal eyes

There's wonder flowing in the shining river
Fallen from the rainbow in the sky
All to be the sweetness of the sparkle
Of the crystal in your eyes
Crystal eyes

In the winter's when I will come calling
When we're rugged up warm against the cold
And our hearts will be no longer frozen
To the wonder we'll behold
Crystal eyes

There's wonder flowing in the shining river
Fallen from the rainbow in the sky
All to be the sweetness of the sparkle
Of the crystal in your eyes
Crystal eyes
Track Name: Where you are
Only my love my love my love
Will find the way to my door my door my door
Only with her will I will I be completely whole

Only my sweet remembered past
The sum of all that I am and know and see
All of the things I trust believe and see in you

I will be
Where you are

Fragile is the flower the flower that
Grows between me and you and you and you
Scent of our love will guide and lead me home

End of the line will come along all too soon
But I feel the depths of love suffice
Pillars of wisdom courage and might and sacrifice

I will be
Where you are
Track Name: Lily at the gate
My love waits
By the lily at the gate
The lily at the gate
Is where my love waits
She flowers here every year
My love waits
By the lily at the gate


In this house there was a home
Filled with love flesh and bone
In the still of the night
She holds me tight
She won't let go

My love...

Two young hearts their eyes they meet
A field of barley a field of wheat
The course of life surely set
The harvest ripe
And fully met

My love...

As they walk down the line
A bloom of flowers oh so fine
Two strong boys at their heels
The two young lovers
Dreams are real

My love...

In the wild winters night
The white frost comes to clothe the light
My eyes sea mist the children grown
My love she sleeps
She sleeps alone
Track Name: The Best Days
The best days were the days of struggle
Up to our necks in trouble
Never were we more fully alive
The victory was won so sweetly
When we gave ourselves completely
Nothing could have weakened our resolve

If yesterday you could have seen
Where you'd be tomorrow
Would you even start the journey?
The road will lead you places
You would never choose to go
Seemingly it takes you
Far from your quarry
To a cache of treasure,
You may not recognise
In that moment your faith is being tested
To see if it will bridge the chasms floor
For every soldier proven in the fire
A crown of glory
Surely does await



When I look back in wonder
At where the road has brought me
Regret is not the lover
Who shall be my muse
For in the heart of darkness
The recess of your shadow
Disappointment will be blinded by the light
Destiny will not forsake me
Calamity not overtake me
For every soldier fallen in the battle
Deserted disbelieving
To them our duty
Is to carry on
Carry on


The best days were the days of struggle
Up to our necks in trouble
Never were we more fully alive
The victory was won so sweetly
When we gave ourselves completely
Nothing could have weakened our resolve
We went all the way
All the way from sorrow
All for a bright tomorrow
All the way

And in the witness cloud
They testify of virtue
Of the souls who shine
In the shadow of the valley
And the sequel will be wonderful
Not hurtful not shameful
For they seek not their own but the glory of others
To carry the weight of sisters and brothers
To forgive but not condone
Anonymous unknown
And my brother says:
Who will bear this burden?
And I say what burden?
I am my brothers keeper
Track Name: Abraham
Looked up at the sky like Abraham
And I counted the stars and the grains of the sand
If you try to measure infinity
It'll blow your mind and your sanity

Went to the waters and they opened wide
Poured down torrents from the holy sky
Went for a ride upon the eagles wings
To the place where the tongues of men and angels sing

Sun and moon they bowed down low
Along with the sheaves Joseph's brothers grow
Mary Mary now don't you weep
Let the slaves in the cotton fields speak

Brought over the sea from Africa
Bound with the chains of Babylon
Held to the bosom of Abraham
Sing to me child of the promised land

Sing Sing child of the promised land

Behold what goodness and severity
Upon temptations mediocrity
Upon your sinful wicked ways
Grace has come but fire remains
Track Name: Every Moment Every Second
Every moment every second
Every hour every day
Listen to what beckons
While the sand still slips away

For time will do you wrong
Or time will do you right
But time will be no more
When you are hid from the daylight

Sleeping in your grave
You will know nothing
Your memory thats forgotten
Your body to decay

Every moment every second
Every hour every day
Listen to what beckons
While the sand still slips away

We got Pythagoras theory
And relativity theory
We got a whole lotta love peace
And Timothy Leary
We got the signs of the times
And the sign of the cross
Stains on the glass
We got profit and loss
But there's war in our hearts
And there's war in our beds
There's no rest for the wicked
There's no rest for them there
Plenty of potions
Plenty to share
Serpents and witchcraft
Polish your wares

Who's gonna rouse up the lion sleeping
And make him roar like thunder?

We got conspiracy theory
And evolutionary gap
We got the wise all knowing
The fools and the fat
We got the starving the lean
And the mean in between
We got the walls and the bridges
Holding up the machine
But there's the silence of lambs
And the wisdom of warriors
There's the tall and the short
The beggars and borrowers
There's the tares and the wheat
The leaven and yeast
The first and the last
The great and the least

Who's gonna rouse up the lion sleeping
And make him roar like thunder?

Let me tell you a story
Let me tell you a fact
World conspiracy theory
To explain where we're at
Not Beyonce' Jay Z
Or illuminati
Not your KKK
Or Republican party
Nor the government's busy
Feeding the Fed
Or the bankers obliging on
Babylon's bed
But the heart of man that's desperately wicked
Jeremiah chapter 17 verse 9

Who's gonna rouse up the lion sleeping
And make him roar like thunder?
My wounds are raw they're battered and bleeding
My spirit's poor broken believing
Track Name: Blood Sweat and Tears
Away
I won't run away

Your love will bind me
For a million years
How did you find me
River of tears

We'll build an empire
Pillars of stone
No more in exile
I'm coming home

I give my blood sweat and tears

Lightning and thunder
Tear at the wall
Not torn asunder
The mighty stand tall

Well I remember
Things that you said
You'll not deny me
My daily bread

Will anybody listen to me?
Will anybody hear me cry?
Track Name: Sad Gypsy Lady
While you sleep there so softly and silent
As the mist falls with it's mission of dew
Catching your dreams like the sea catches water
I watch the moon come to watch over you

While you drift away on your journey
Far far away like a wandering cloud
Though it may seem that I watch from a distance
I'll never forget my true love my bride

So tell me my fortune sad gypsy lady
Isn't that one of the things that you know?
Through the eye of a storm through the eye of a needle
This is what she said to me carry on

When first I beheld her beheld her beheld her
A raven haired beauty with fire in her eyes
Escaped form the shadows to stand on the gallows
Ready to flood the earth with her tears

Oh but I led her away to the desert
And tenderly fed and protected her there
Her breasts are like fawns that browse 'mongst the lillies
Oh come away my beauty my dove

As I was wandering wandering wandering
The river that flows out of dawn to the dusk
That's travelled and wound along many a highway
That seemed as though lost but you know that will find

A home in the sea the mist and the rain
A home in the hail gathering storm
Consciousness stream of poems dreams and wonder
Sweeping across and flooding my soul

So tell me my fortune sad gypsy lady
Isn't that one of the things that you know?
Through the eye of a storm through the eye of a needle
This is what she said to me carry on

Carry on carry on all flesh is carrion
When the eagle scythes through the air
Clutching the bones of the sad gypsy lady
Casting them all to the depths of the sea
Track Name: Mermaids
There's mermaids in the ocean
Down in the sea
The siren song of lovers
Wrapped in the weed

I hear her voice calling
Calling me near
The broken hearted sailors
Drown in her tears

Drown in her tears

Tie me to the deck
Lash me to the mast
For in my weaker moments
I could be found

Diving in that ocean
For the pleasure of the sound
The ship's run aground
Plummeting down

The pirates and the rich men
The beggars and the vain
Like Beowulf all lured
Sleep 'neath the waves

For she is no hag
But a beauty who can resist
The fruit of her womb
Is the child of the abyss

Oh the abyss
Mermaid of my bliss

She seeks not a lover
She seeks not a friend
She's looking for her master
Not weak mortal men

For all the wretched sailors
Never to return
Scattered to the four winds
The albatross' curse

Chapter and verse
No time to rehearse
Track Name: Share your love / Because
Share your love
Share it with me
Oh how sweet
Sweet it would be
Underneath the blossom tree
Let your flowers fall down on me
And the breeze caress us so

Wonderland
Of the heart
Panoply of the stars
All across the milky way
Tomorrow and yesterday
I will find you come what may

Because
Only your sweet love will do
Only your sweet heart is true
Only your wide eyes will see
The place where troubles all will cease
The secret of my lovers heart
The wounded place your poisoned dart

Share your love
Share it me
Lovers touch of ecstasy
Wild places of desire
Paradise destroyed by fire
All for you the city burns
Track Name: Satellites
Satellite
Sad sad satellite
Spinning wheel
Window of the night

I went away
Went went went away
Just to see to see
What you would say

Invisible the chains of orbit
I will be your burning satellite

All the children
Waiting to be born
Still in the mire
Waiting to be formed

The streets are full
They're full of hungry hearts
Waiting for their moment
To be a star

Invisible the chains of orbit
I will be your burning satellite

I think of you
And all those gone before
For precious life precious love
Precious thought

In the wide eyed wonder
Of it all
For you my children now
As you go forth

Invisible the chains of orbit
I will be your burning satellite
Track Name: Australia
I looked into
I looked at your face
Oh your face
Where beauty has its place
Far away from here
Taken from your touch
To a land that's disappeared
Crying out for you

Suddenly I dreamed
And there I saw your eyes
Sparkling and alive
Taken to a place
None of them came from
So they just walk along
And their step will never falter
While they don't understand

You and what it is to be
From the endless plain and dream
Of Australia

Tell me what it is
They were all taken away
Upon this country lay
A ghost land it will stay
While shadows dance and play
In the moonlight they're arrayed
Midnight corrobboree

And they don't understand
You and what it is to be
From the endless plain and dream
Of Australia

Haunted they remain
Wild and insane
In the gaol of the mind
Invisible to the blind
But there on King's Cross street
'Mongst the detritus you sleep
A pawn in Darwin's game

And they don't understand
You and what it is to be
From the endless plain and dream
Of Australia
