I Know Where You Been

Tell you a story 'bout a woman
Made me lose my way again
She could walk, she could talk like a house on fire
Make a man as weak as a lamb,
come and feel my sweet caress
Said the spider to the fly
Walk on in like a newborn, knock on wood
Love like this make me wanna cry

You can run you can hide but you never will
You can cry try to hide but behind those eyes
I see original sin

Lay your cards down on the table
I know where you been
Cigarettes in my ash tray
I know where you been
I know where you been

You disappeared Monday morning baby
Thursday the cat drug you in
Somebody been dipped in my cheery win
And my bed feels like you been loving in

You can run you can hide but you never win
You can try to hide but there ain't no way
You be sneaking out again

Lay your cards on the table
I know where you been
Cigarettes in my ash tray

I know where you been
Silhouettes in my window
I know where you been
Sad regrets on my pillow
I know where you been
I know where you been


Place Called Rage

I can feel it burning
There's trouble in my soul
Children often learning
Feel it losing hold

See the skies are burning
Fire in the hole
Tables stop their turning
Ashes turn to gold
I can hear the children cry
No tomorrow in their eyes

CPA on 883
MBA on MTV
ACP and the NRA
AOK in a place called rage

Walking thru a nightmare
Violence in the streets
Always hope but no prayer
What has been will be

See the rockets red glare
Summer turning cold
Fragile but without care a tragedy unfolds
Locked up in some hiding place
Evil smiles without a face

AMA on AZT
DDS had HIV
PHD in the KKK
AMF to the USA
EPA on FCC
IRA on BBC
KGB in the PTA
AOK in a place called rage

Silence escalating, vision to the blind
Another heart in breaking, maniac suicide
Reaching out for no one
Maybe let you in
Feels just like you're welcome, time and time
again

MIA on PCP
DNA and DDT
CIA and LBJ
JFK is DOA
NVA on a DC-10
SMF on RCN
ATT call EPA
SOS in a place called rage


Trapped

Ain't not hurt in pain
All that left remains
No more lies to tell
When the calm has gone insane
So afraid to fear
Cries without a tear
Looking out inside
Far away became so near

I found in you but lost myself
Far too late for only time to tell

Now I'm trapped on my own
No way out no way home
And now I feel so alone
Trapped inside all I know

Calm inside my rage
Darkness starts to fade
Nightmare turns to dreams in a bed I never
made
Silence starts to call
Stand down thru it all
Voices look so clear see them echo in hall

As tears run down my face
Counting years gone by without a trace

As my day begins
Angels born in sin
Just my hand to hold
Feel the cold set in

Written in the past
Far too long to last
Innocence unmasked


Taking It Lying Down

Stare out my window
Look to the sky
Waiting for someone
Ask me no questions
I tell you no lies
Angel of mercy
Smile down on your son
Sleeping in silence
Thoughtful and mindless
When all's said and done

You made it sound so innocent
Now you walk on higher ground
I'll never know just what you meant
When the flame went out
And yet somehow you take it lying down

Got me no reason
But I got me sometime
Can't change the season, God knows I've
tried
But I can't change your mind

You know there's no room for comfort
No pain for awhile
One day I hope to see all that I couldn't see
In my baby's first smile

You make it sound so innocent
Now you walk on higher ground
I'll never know just what you meant
When the flame went out
And now you take it lying down

Every night it's the same old dream
I can't help but wonder
What we'd be if you could have seen
Or looked out from under

You made it sound so innocent
Now you walk on higher ground
You said some things that you never
meant
Don't you take it lying down
But it's over now
And yet somehow you take it lying down


Someday

I can feel the spirit
It's kickin' in
Oh it's goin' to my head
I hear the sound of thunder comin' fast
Oh the anger turns to read
Wanna look upon more sacred ground
night and day
Wanna feel it as it's comin' down
Someday gonna find it someday
Someday gotta find it someday

I see a blue horizon no ray of hope
Yeah the lights is on its way
Someone to lean on a hand to hold
Oh the children are betrayed

Gotta work upon this fertile ground night
and day
Keep searching for that higher ground
Someday gonna find it someday
Someday we'll find it someday

Clean water rainin' down on a world with
no shame
Some new religion wash away our pain

Keep searchin' for that higher ground
The past in ashes on the ground
I swear I feel it comin' round

Someday we'll find it someday
Someday hope we'll find it someday.

Someday we'll find it someday
Someday hope we'll find it someday.
Someday we'll find it someday
Someday hope we'll find it someday.


One Child

Drop dime on glory
Just made the front page
About a world full of anger
In a place called rage
Like his father before him
Like the world he was in

Judge a book by its cover and a man by
his skin
Hear the sirens howl
Watch his mother cry
Seen it all turn bad in the blink of an eye
Can't count the pieces of a broken heart
Feel his blood run cold as his world falls apart

I pass the school yard as a boy
I learned to think of what to say
But now the walls all read
Blow them all away
And now there's
One child of vision
One child of hate
One cure is coming
For one son it's too late
When one son was dying
In his father's shame
Preacher says the world's gone insane
What was his name

One son shot down
Cold November sky
Saw my father weep as the music died
No words were spoken for the widowed
bride
All's fair in love and war just the world
goodbye

My brother marches off to war
Oh mother tried to hide the pain
My brother learned to love and die in vain
And now there's

One child of vision
One child of hate
One day is coming
For one son it's too late
Will my son be lying
In this bed we made
Tell me if you know who's to blame
And know what was his name
I think when all is said and done
I'll know I did the best I could
I guess for now it all misunderstood


What These Eyes Have Seen

Sad alone
Time to wonder
Why the sun don't shine
In the rain
Feel my heart beat
Cold as winter
And it's calling out my name

Like a whisper
Silence haunting
You won't recognize
My faceless mame
Like a secret
Unforgiving
Microscopic eyes
Can't bear the shame

Like the calm before a storm
And some honor proudly worn
When the lies are incomplete
Like a child beneath your feet
Live in darkness not a word
Maybe seen but never heard
Trading silence for a scream
You should listen to what
these eyes have seen

As I wander thru the rain
Won't you wash away my pain
Swore I'd hold my head up high
Give my all to stay alive
I have seen the promised land
With its blood on my hands
When you wake up from your dream
You should listen, what was missing
Listen - what these eyes have seen


Can't Find My Way Home

Driving down this dark and lonesome road
Bits and pieces everywhere I go
Memories of days gone by
A broken heart, now I cry
Alone all alone

Couldn't see the writing on the wall
Foolish pride let me take this fall
Faded like a memory
A feeling not returned to me
I'm better off without you so I'm told

Can't find my way back home again
Feeling like I just lost my only friend
Looking back on the years we tried
The pain is gone still I cry
Can't seem to find my way back home

Whispered out your name but no-one's there
Can't believe I'm talking to myself
A sound came from the radio
Explained the life I used to know
Just can't seem to let this feeling go
Nothing ventured all is lost
Broke my promise paid the cost
Shattered dreams in mind
That old safe place I'll never find

Faded like a memory
The warning I refuse to see
Can't seem to find my way home again


Jenny Doesn't Live Here Anymore

I guess it's true, I'll make it thru
But this old house will never be the same
The old screen door don't creak no more
No candles burning down on yesterday
When I had it my hand

Her precious game is locked away
Tear drops dry upon an empty page
That old guitar don't sing no more
And oh how she could take your breath away
When she had it in her hands and she
Would dance as you looked away

Now don't you come knockin' on my door
Like you did so many times before
I'll put it into words you can't ignore
Jenny doesn't live here anymore

I got home and she got strong
I was drowning in the pouring rain
In a word I loved her but
This old town has got a feeling
She's a rebel anyway
And everything she gave they took away

You gotta find the strength to walk on by
Gotta find the tears you never cried
Don't wanna be the first one to close the door
Jenny doesn't live here anymore

Maybe we were looking for the same thing
Jenny couldn't live in two different worlds
I tried to let it burn the way she showed me
Maybe we can hold on, maybe we can hold
On tight to secrets we know and live with it all

Maybe we were looking for the same thing
She tried to take a ride in two different worlds
I didn't want to learn 'till someone showed me
Maybe we can hold on...
Maybe we can hold on...

You gotta find the strength to walk on by
Gotta find the tears you never cried
Don't wanna be the first one to close the door
Jenny doesn't live here anymore


Thunderbox

Oh Yeah,
You got your hot pants ‘round your shoulders
Lick your lips and you’re a fox
Everybody stopped and told us
Say you got a thunderbox
You can see for yourself,
I've got a clean bit of heaven
I ain't never seen a thunderbox


Oh, oh, what do you know
Well, I get to sing--yeah
Oh, Well, was your claim to fame
You know it’s the song that I’m singing--yeah
She’s a thunderbox…


You're not a lot, you know, when you ain't a gypsy
And a hooker with your wicked knots
I had to park the car and take a look to see
'Cause I ain't never seen a thunderbox
Oh, oh, well, I don't know where you've been
But I can what you've seen--yeah
Well, It’s your claim to fame
You know that’s the song that I’m singing
She's a thunderbox…


Some say you from Dallas there
And you're hooked on pork and beans
But I think it might be you're from Louisiana
Maybe ‘Round about New Orleans
I can see you don't smell like no flower
But I can say the same for myself
I’ll Tell you girl,
I know that you know that I know I've got the power
You know that you're bad yourself


Don't ask me for no answers
You could never ever take the shock
I've got the grief and I'll take my chances
Rolling with my thunder box
Well, what do you know, I get to sing--yeah (take it)
Oh, Well, was your claim to fame
As long as the music’s swaying
She’s a thunderbox….


We're Not Coming Home

Father comes home from the station
Tries to pretend and ignore
Mother can't sleep and the days are uncertain
Things ain't the same as before
Cold silhouette in the corner
Counting as all pass him by
Guilty for killing poor Jesus
All propaganda denied
And the run through the streets
When they tell me it's time for all of us
To die - we're not going home

Holy star of David
Number on my skin
Persecuted nation what will be has been
Dying in the chambers
Slaughtered for belief
Hail the new Messiah with blood upon
his feet
Oh madness setting in
Oh where did it begin

We're not going home
On a midnight train to nowhere

Desert sky is burning
Poison from a seed
Lunatic is rising from a gulf they call a sea
Won't be home for Christmas
I must play my hand
Santa won't be coming by for no
foxhole in the sand

Preacher on the TV
Hell is turning cold
Ain't got time for dying
And I'm too young to be old
Holy lands and suicide are washed up on
the shore
Guess they won't be coming back for
more

Don't come running to me when
They tell me it's time for all of us to die


Chained To A Maniac

Grindin' all night, mambo on the cellar floor
Baby wanna bump, I just can't take anymore
Voices in my head shout the lord's name in vain
It was certified homicide, borderline suicide
Wish I could remember her name

Daddy's little sinner look what you done to me
Shaggin' with your momma to get the recipe
Brother Johnny at the doorstep he got a loaded gun
I was mortified, mesmerized, take a number
Get in line 'cause son I'm not the only one
And 1, 2, 3, 4 heading out the back door

Chained, chained, chained to a maniac
Chained, chained, chained to a maniac

Feelin' kinda low got this monkey on my back
Son don't pull the trigger when I'm chained to a maniac

Johnny pull the cover I had to find a hiding place
I knew it hit the fan when I saw the look on his face
Pass my own shadow screamin' out the front door
I was sanctified, crucified, Elvis he was petrified

Same old story ain't got the sense to
Know when I'm done
Head in my hand lord it seems second to none
I was electrified, genocide, paralyzed and mystified
After all is said and done
5, 6, 7, 8 all is well in love and hate
