  • The Fiddle and the Drum
  • When the Levee Breaks
  • Let's Have a War
  • Freedom of Choice
  • People Are People
  • Gimme Gimme Gimme
  • What's so funny about Peace, Love and Understanding

And so once again
My dear Johnny my dear friend.
And so once again you are fighting us
all.
And when I ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry, and I
fall.
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum?

You say I have turned
Like the enemies you’ve earned.
But I can remember
All the good things you are.
And so I ask you please
Can I help you find the peace and the
star.
Oh, my friend
What time is this
To trade the handshake for the fist?

And so once again
Oh, America my friend
And so once again
You are fighting us all
And when we ask you why
You raise your sticks and cry and we
fall.
Oh, my friend
How did you come
To trade the fiddle for the drum?

You say we have turned
Like the enemies you’ve earned.
But we can remember
All the good things you are.
And so we ask you please
Can we help you find the peace and the
star.
Oh my friend
We have all come
To fear the beating of your drum.

If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to
break.
If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to
break.
When the levee breaks you’ll have no place
to stay.

Mean old levee taught me how to weep and
moan.
Mean old levee taught me how to weep and
moan.
When the levee breaks we’ll have no place
to stay.

All last night I sat on the levee and
moan.
Cryin’ wont help you. Prayin won’t do no
good.
When the levee breaks we’ll have no place
to stay.

There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many

Let’s have a war
So you can go and die!
Let’s have a war!
We could all use the money!
Let’s have a war!
We need the space!
Let’s have a war!
Clean out this place!

It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!

Let’s have a war!
Jack up the Dow Jones!
Let’s have a war!
It can start in New Jersey!
Let’s have a war!
Blame it on the middle-class!
Let’s have a war!
We’re like rats in a cage!

It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!

Let’s have a war!
Sell the rights to the networks!
Let’s have a war!
Let our wallets get fat like last time!
Let’s have a war!
Give guns to the queers!
Let’s have a war!
The enemy’s within!

It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!

We’re victims of sedition on the open sea
No one ever said life was free
Sank, swam, go down with the ship
Just use your freedom of choice

I’ll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice
Freedom of choice

In ancient Rome there was a pawn
Who followed along and watched it fall
He cast a stone, he felt secure
He felt that he would never be heard

Freedom of choice
Is what you got
Freedom of choice

You’re given a voice you don’t want it
Seems to be the rule of thumb
Don’t be tricked by what you see
You got two ways to go

I’ll say it again in the land of the free
Use your freedom of choice
Freedom of choice

Freedom of choice
Is what you’ve got
Freedom of choice

In ancient Rome there was a pawn
Who followed along and watched it fall
He cast a stone, he felt secure
He felt that his voice would never be
heard

Freedom of choice
Is what you’ve got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want

Freedom of choice
Is what you’ve got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want

Freedom from choice
Is what you want
Freedom from choice

People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

So we’re different colours
And we’re different creeds
And different people
Have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve never even met you
So what could I have done
I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
Help me understand
Help me understand

Now you’re punching
And you’re kicking
And you’re shouting at me
And I’m relying on your common decency
So far it hasn’t surfaced
But I’m sure it exists
It just takes a while to travel
From your head to your fist (head to your
fists)
I can’t understand what makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully

I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
I can’t understand (people are people)
What makes a man (why should it be)
Hate another man
Help me understand

Gimme gimme gimme
I need more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don’t ask what for.

Sitting here I’m a loaded gun.
Waiting to go off.
I’ve got nothing to do
But shoot my mouth off.

Gimme gimme gimme
I need more.
Gimme gimme gimme
Don’t ask what for.

You know I’m gonna go out
Get something for my head.
If I keep on doing this
I’m gonna end up dead.

Gimme gimme gimme
I need some more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don’t ask what for

I know the world’s got problems
I’ve got problems of my own
Not the kind that can’t be solved
With an atom bomb

Gimme gimme gimme
I need more
Gimme gimme gimme
Don’t ask what for

As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin’ for light in the darkness of
insanity.

I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and
misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
There’s one thing I wanna know:
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?

And as I walked on
Through troubled times
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

‘Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away,
just makes me wanna cry.
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?

So where are the strong?
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony.

‘Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away,
just makes me wanna cry.
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?
What’s so funny ’bout peace love &
understanding?

Thirteenth Step

  • Weak and Powerless
  • Gravity
  • Pet
  • The Package
  • The Noose
  • Vanishing

Tilling my own grave to keep me level…
Jam another dragon down the hole…
Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a
solitary siren…
one that pushes me along, and leaves me
so…
desperate and ravenous…
I’m so Weak and powerless over you…

Someone feed the monkey while I dig in
search of china…
White as Dracula as I approach the
bottom…
so desperate and ravenous.
I’m so Weak and powerless over you…

Little angel, go away…
Come again some other day…
Devil has my ear today…
I’ll never hear a word you say…
He Promised I would find a little solace
and some peace of mind…
Whatever. just as long as I don’t feel so
desperate and ravenous.

I’m so Weak and powerless over you…

Lost again
Broken and weary
Unable to find my way
Tail in hand
Dizzy and clearly unable to
Just let this go

I am surrendering to the gravity and the
unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the
sun
I choose to live

I fell again
Like a baby unable to stand on my own
Tail in hand
Dizzy and clearly unable to just let this
go
I am surrendering to the gravity and the
unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the
sun
I choose to live, I choose to live, I
choose to live

Catch me heal me lift me back up to the
sun
Help me survive the bottom

Calm these hands before they
Snare another pill and
Drive another nail down another
Needy hole please release me

I am surrendering to the gravity and the
unknown
Catch me heal me lift me back up to the
sun
I choose to live, I choose to live

Don’t fret precious I’m here.
Step away from the window.
Go back to sleep.

Lay your head down child.
I won’t let the boogeyman come.

Count the bodies like sheep
to the rhythm of the war drums.

Pay no mind to the rabble.
Pay no mind to the rabble.

Head down, go to sleep
to the rhythm of the war drums.

Pay no mind what other voices say.
They don’t care about you, like I do.
Safe from pain and truth and choice and
other poison devils.
See, they don’t give a fuck about you like
I do.

Just stay with me.
Safe and ignorant.
Go back to sleep.
Go back to sleep.

Lay your head down child
I won’t let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
to the rhythm of the war drums.

Pay no mind to the rabble.
Pay no mind to the rabble.

Head down, go to sleep to the rhythm of
the war drums.

I’ll be the one to protect you from
your enemies and all your demons.

I’ll be the one to protect you from
a will to survive and a voice of reason.

I’ll be the one to protect you from
your enemies and your choices, son.
They’re one in the same.
I must isolate you.
Isolate and save you from yourself.

Swayin to the rhythm of the new world
order and
counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm
of the war drums.

The boogeymen are coming.
The boogeymen are coming.

Keep your head down go to sleep to the
rhythm of a war drums.

Stay with me.
Safe and ignorant.
Just stay with me.
Hold you and protect you from the other
ones.
The evil ones
don’t love you, son.
Go back to sleep

Clever got me this far.
Then tricky got me in.
Eye on what I’m after.
I don’t need another friend.
Smile and drop the cliche
Till you think I’m listening.
Take just what I came for,
then I’m out the door again.

Peripheral on the package.
Don’t care to settle in.
Time to feed the monster.
I don’t need another friend.
Comfort is a mystery.
Crawling out of my own skin.
Just give me what I came for, then I’m out
the door again.

Lie to get what I came for.
Lie to get just what I need.
Lie to get what I crave.
Lie and smile to get what’s mine.

Eye on what I’m after.
I don’t need another friend.
Nod and watch your lips move
If you need me to pretend
Because clever got me this far.
Then tricky got me in.
Take just what I came for,
then I’m out the door again.

Lie to get what I came for.
Lie to get what I need now.
Lie to get what I’m craving.
Lie and smile to get what’s mine .

Give this to me
Take what’s mine
Mine, mine, mine.

This is mine.

So glad to see you have overcome them
Completely silent now.
With heaven’s help,
You’ve cast your demons out.
And not to pull your halo down
around your neck and tug you off your
cloud,
But I’m more than just a little curious
How you’re planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead.

Recall the deeds as if they’re all someone
else’s atrocious stories.
Now you stand reborn before us all.
So glad to see you well

And not to pull your halo down
Around your neck and tug you to the ground

But I’m more than just a little curious
How you’re planning to go about
Making your amends to the dead with your
halo slipping down.

Your halo’s slipping down to choke you
now.

Disappear
Disappear
Higher
Higher
Into the air
Slowly disappear
No, no longer here

Disappear
Disappear
Thinner, thinner
Into the air

Never really here.
Wasn’t ever.
Like a thought brushing up against a sigh

Floating away
Floating away

Vanishing like a sigh
and slowly
Disappear
Disappear
Vanish, vanish into the air
Slowly disappear
Never really
here

Floating away
Floating away

Been over
Been over this before
Been over and over
Been over this before

And over
Been over this before
So over this
Been over this
So over this
Been over this

Metaphor for a missing moment
Pull me in to your perfect circle

One womb
One shame
One resolve

Liberate this will
To release us all

Gotta cut away, clear away
Snip away and sever this
Umbilical residue,
Keeping me from killing you

And from pulling you down with me here,
I can almost hear you scream

Give me one more medicated peaceful
moment
Give me one more medicated peaceful
moment

And I don’t wanna feel this
Overwhelming hostility
I don’t wanna feel this
Overwhelming hostility

Gotta cut away, clear away
Snip away and sever this
Umbilical residue

Gotta cut away, clear away
Snip away and sever this
Umbilical residue,
Keeping me from killing you

Snip away and sever this

Keeping me from killing you

run, desire, run this sexual being
run him like a blade to & through the
heart
no conscience, one motive…
to cater to the hollow.
screaming feed me, fill me up again.
temporarily pacify this hungering.
so, grow, libido, throw dominoes of
indiscretions down.
falling all around in cycles/circles.
constantly consuming.
conquer and devour.
it’s time to bring this fire down.
bridle all this indiscretion
long enough to edify and permanently fill
this hollow.
feed me, fill me up again.
temporarily pacify this hungering.

Don’t disturb the beast
The tempermental goat
The snail while he’s feeding on the Rose
Stay frozen, compromising
What I will, I am

Bend around the wind
Silently thrown about
Again I’m treading so
Soft and lightly
Compromising my will
I am

I am
I will
So no longer will I
Lay down
Play dead
Play your doe in the headlights
Locked down and terrified
Your deer in the headlights
Shot down and horrified when
Push comes to pull comes to shove
Comes to step around this self-destructing
dance
That never would’ve ended
Til’ I Rose,
I roared aloud here
I will
I am.

I am
I will
So no longer will I
Lay down
Lay dead
Play this
Kneel down
Gun-shy Martyr
Pitiful
I rose, I roared
I will
I am

threw you the obvious and you flew
with it on your back, a name in your
recollection,
thrown down among a million same.
difficult not to feel a little bit
disappointed
and passed over
when i’ve looked right through
to see you naked and oblivious
and you don’t see me.
but i threw you the obvious
just to see if there’s more behind the
eyes
of a fallen angel,
the eyes of a tragedy.
here i am expecting just a little bit
too much from the wounded.
but i see through it all
and see you.
so i threw you the obvious
to see what occurs behind the eyes of a
fallen angel,
eyes of a tragedy.
oh well. apparently nothing.
you don’t see me.
you don’t see me at all.

Humble and helpless.
Learning to pray.
Praying for visions
to show me the way.
Show me the way to forgive you.
Allow me to let it go.
Allow me to be forgiven.
Show me the way to let go.
Show me the way to forgive you.
Allow you to let it go.
Allow me to be forgiven.
Show you the way to let go.
Illuminate me.
Illuminate the way. I’m
just praying for you to show me
where I’m to begin

Hoping to
Reconnect with you.
Hoping to.

Overcome by your
Moving temple
Overcome by this
Holiest of altars

So pure
So rare
To witness such an earthly goddess
That I’ve lost my self control
Beyond compelled to throw this dollar down
before your
Holiest of altars

I’d sell
My soul
My self-esteem a dollar at a time

One chance
One kiss
One taste of you my Magdalena

I bear witness
To this place, this prayer, so long
forgotten
So pure
So rare
To witness such an earthly goddess

That I’d sell
My soul
My self-esteem a dollar at a time
For one chance
One kiss
One taste of you my black Madonna

I’d sell
My soul
My self-esteem a dollar at a time

One taste
One taste
One taste of you my Magdalena
