1. Long Way to Go

Your mama said you’re lonely and that you don’t get out no more
Your papa said that he saw hanging down at the grocery store
The man with empty pockets said he stole your heart away

I guess I should be leaving
‘Cause I’ve still got a long way to go

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh

Don’t worry about the schemers ’cause they have got nothing to give
Don’t worry about the dreamers ’cause they are learning to forgive
The man with empty pockets said he stole your heart away

I guess I should be leaving
‘Cause I’ve still got a long way to go

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh

Maybe I should make some other plans
Try to find someone who understands
My situation
Could it just be my own destiny
Getting up and running away from me
My situation

Tell me where to go
Tell me where to go
Tell me where to go now

And now I guess the story is coming to the end
There ain’t no need for the pleasantries ’cause there’s no need to pretend
I’m gonna hit the road and I’m gonna have to make my way

I guess I should be leaving
‘Cause I’ve still got a long way to go

Maybe I should make some other plans
Try to find someone who understands
My situation
Could it just be my own destiny
Getting up and running away from me
My situation

Maybe I should make some other plans
Try to find someone who understands
My situation
Could it just be my own destiny
Getting up and running away from me
My situation

2. Keep Moving

Drive in the morning
Drive through the night
Drive down the highway
‘Til you’re feeling alright

Left all awake for
Up and behind
Gonna have to keep an eye out
For a good time she said

Just keep moving
Just keep moving

Wind down the windows
Hands in the breeze
Head for the mountains
Head for the seas

Seen all the things that
You won’t believe
Gonna have to get back there
Never wanna leave she said

Just keep moving
Just keep moving

You’re gonna think twice
Living on a roll of a dice
You’re gonna think twice
Waiting for a paradise

You’re gonna think twice
Living on a roll of a dice
You’re gonna think twice
Waiting for a paradise

Sometimes it’s good to
Stay in one place
Sometimes the things that
You cannot face

Sooner or later
You got to move
Nobody gonna tell you
What you gotta do she said

Just keep moving
Just keep moving
Just keep moving
Just keep moving

Just keep moving
Just keep moving
Just keep moving
Just keep moving

3. Somebody’s Calling

Nobody ever wants to be lonely
Take it from someone who knows
Nobody wanna wake up on their own
With no message on the telephone

Somebody’s calling out your name
Somebody’s calling out your name

Bought a one-way ticket on an airplane
Going to a new world
Gonna see everything I’ve never done before
Gonna leave behind my girl

Somebody’s calling out your name
Somebody’s calling out your name

Somebody’s calling out your name
Somebody’s calling out your name
Your name
Your name

Marina
Don’t do me like this girl
I’ll give you the world for just one kiss
Marina oh no
Don’t do me like this
I’ll give up the world just for a bit

Well I guess I’d better go back home
Try to face this whole mess
Well I guess I never really knew
That it was all meaningless

Nobody’s calling out my name
Nobody’s calling out my name

Nobody ever wanna be lonely
Nobody ever wanna be lonely
Nobody ever wanna be lonely
Nobody ever wanna be lonely

4. Vicarious

I’m on the roller-cane
I got to change my name
Everything I do is wrong
I’ve been putting up with this too long

You’re living vicariously
Tell me what’s it like to believe
Is it everything you wished for
Can’t you see I want a little bit more

You just been cruising along
Like the biggest fool in town
It’s getting pretty old by now
You made your own sweet crown

You’re living vicariously
Tell me what’s it like to believe
Is it everything you wished for
Do you see I want a little bit more

You’re living vicariously
Tell me what’s it like to believe
Is it everything you wished for
Do you see I want a little bit more

You had so many dreams
That never came to fruition
You had so many scenes
But never followed your intuition

You just like to tag along
Just like a parasite
But when things are going wrong
You’re nowhere to be seen and you’re out of sight

You’re living vicariously
Tell me what’s it like to believe
Is it everything you wished for
Do you see I want a little bit more

You’re living vicariously
Tell me what’s it like to believe
Is it everything you wished for
Do you see I want a little bit more

5. Year of the Dragon

I was born in the year of the dragon
To what I never imagine

In the year of the rat
Became a welcome mat
In the year of the horse
Used too much force
Another year came round
It came round to the year of the dragon

I rode in the back of a wagon
I drank from the bottom of a flagon

In the year of the ox
I was living in a box
In the year of the snake
I was half awake
Another year came round
It came round to the year of the dragon

In the year of the rabbit
I was changing a habit
In the year of the pig
Went small too big
Another year came around
It came around to the year of the dragon

In the year of the dragon
In the year of the dragon

6. Meridian

Sitting on the meridian
Voices speaking from within
Never seen these days before
Wondering where to begin

Look into the TV screen I don’t know
Don’t know what it means

Flashing colours on the screen
Is it true or just a dream
Running from reality
Help creating fantasy

Look into the TV screen I don’t know
Don’t know what it means

You choose your reality
You see what you want to see
You hear what you want to hear
To make it through the rest of the day

Some are living in despair
All I seek to do is stare
Some are living on the run
Find it hard to even to care

Look into the TV screen I don’t know
Don’t know what it means yeah

You choose your reality
You see what you want to see
You hear what you want to hear
To make it through the rest of the day

Day
Day

Sitting on the meridian
Voices speaking from within
Never seen these days before
Wondering where to begin

Look into the TV screen I don’t know
Don’t know what it means yeah

7. Ghetto

People living free
Free from their misery
Why you gotta find
No one knows why

Knows why
Knows why
Knows why
Knows why

Why you wanna wait
Until it’s too late
The future is in your hands
While they’re making plans

Making plans
Making plans
Making plans
Making plans

This time I’m not going to stand on the sideline
This time I’m not going to be wasting my time

People make a stand
City for chance
Why you wanna fight
No one’s got the right

Got the right
Got the right
Got the right
Got the right

This time I’m going to live the reality
This time I’m going to make it what it should be
This time I’m going to try to watch what’s in front of me
This time I’m going to try to see the reality

8. Suitcase (One More Time)

I just bought this nine dollar suitcase
I been carrying it around the place
It looks like I’m doing something
It looks like I’m making something happen

And at the end of the day
I’ll pack it up and give it away to you

I just bought this thousand dollar car
It don’t even start it don’t go far
It just sits in there on the street
Rusting away in front of everyone it meets

‘Cause if this car could talk
It’s tryin’a tell me to walk away

Walk away
Walk away
Why can’t I just walk away

Something is making me want to sing
Do you want to pick up that guitar and play
Pack up that van and go
Then off to the next show tonight

When that band walks up on stage
You know everything is gonna be alright

One more time
One more time
Why can’t the band play one more time

One more dream
One more dream
Why can’t the band have one more dream

One more song
One more song
Why can’t the band play one more song

One more drink
One more drink
Why can’t we all have one more drink

9. Of the Earth

What you see is what you get
Soon enough some forget
You’ve got to live and then live
With what you have and what you give

Ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh

Hear the song of a sun
[Indecipherable]
Walking with the dignified
Standing to be justified

Ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh

Sooner or later it gets real
Sooner or later you’re on the wheel
Soon enough you’ll know its worth
Soon enough it’s of the earth

It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth
It’s of the earth

Earth, earth, earth, earth
Earth, earth, earth, earth
Yeah, yeah, yeah

10. Let It Go

Sitting on the corner of the globe
Looking for a reason for the tone
There’s no reason why I need to know
There’s no reason why I’ll let it go

Let it go
Let it go

Wonder how we ever got where we are
Listening to everyone don’t know who they are
We all have the reasons that we need to know
It don’t work for everyone might just let it show

Never wanna leave her alone
Never wanna be [indecipherable]
There’s no reason why I need to know
There’s no reason why I’ll let it go

Let it go
Let it go

Let it go
Let it go

Wonder how we ever got where we are
Listening to everyone don’t know who they are
We all have the reasons that we need to know
It don’t work for everyone might just let it show

11. Let Somebody Love You

You live in a box
You built out of rocks
You call it your home
You’ve disconnected the phone

Now it’s not so clear
Just how you got here
Now you’re gonna try
To live without fear

Oh won’t you let somebody love you
Oh won’t you let, won’t you let somebody love you

You cannot remember
The month of December
You were not around
Nowhere to be found

Now you’re moving on
To a different song
Now it’s not so clear
What’s going on

Oh won’t you let somebody love you
Oh won’t you let, won’t you let somebody love you

Oh won’t you let somebody love you
When everyone around you starts to annoy you

When all they’re trying to do is to enjoy you
Oh won’t you let, won’t you let somebody love you

Somebody love you
Let somebody love you

12. She’s a Motorhead

[Indecipherable]

She got love
She’s a motorhead

Please pull over now stop
Show me what you got
Put your hands against the wall
Gonna have to do a search on y’all

She got love
She’s a motorhead
She’s long gone
She’s miles ahead

Wash your hands twelve times a day
On your knees to the lord and pray
Beg for mercy for this world
‘Cause you’re never gonna catch this girl

She got love
She’s a motorhead
She’s long gone
She’s miles ahead

[Indecipherable]

She got love
She’s a motorhead
She long gone
She’s miles ahead

She got no home address
She got nothing to confess
She got everything you need
You know you’re gonna succeed

She got love
She’s a motorhead
She long gone
She’s miles ahead

13. Standing On the Corner

Standing on the corner with you
I’m just standing on the corner with you
I’m just standing on the corner with thoughts that I wonder
I’m standing on the corner with you

Sitting at the table with you
Maybe take a table for two
I’m just sitting at the table wishing I was able love
Sitting at the table with you

Oh won’t you lend me a hand
Oh this pain is second hand

Well there’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time with you
There’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time with you

I’m sitting in the middle with you
I’m just sitting in the middle with you
I’m just sitting in the middle playing second fiddle
Sitting in the middle with you

Oh won’t you lend me a hand
Oh this pain is second hand

Well there’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time with you
There’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time with you

Well there’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time with you
There’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time with you

There’s nothing better to do
Than spend a little time
Spend a little time
Spend a little time with you

14. Country

People are crazy and people are hazy
And everything’s a hassle
That’s why I’m going to move into the country

The wheels fall off and I’m coming down
And maybe it’s time just to settle down
Maybe it’s time just to stop moving around

Just move out to the country
Just move out to the country
Just move out to the country

Head for the sticks gonna get my fix
I’m gonna get out to mother nature’s side
Gonna get out where there’s no more need to hide

Where there’s no more need to hide
Where there’s no more need to hide
Where there’s no more need to hide

Ah, it’s so pleasant there
Now living without a care
Ah, let me stay for a while

Just living in the country
Just living in the country
Just living in the country

15. Black Swan

See the black swan drifting along
He’s doing nothing wrong
It don’t matter which way it turns
It keeps moving on

See the black swan drifting along
It’s doing nothing wrong
It’s just drifting down a stream
It’s just dreaming on

You could be here
You could be there
You could be anywhere you like

You could be here
You could be there
You could be sleeping under a tree
Tonight

See the black swan drifting on
It don’t know what it’s doing
It just keeps on moving on

One of these days we’re lifting the haze
Trying to change our ways
Caught in a dream slipping upstream
Can’t hear a word they say

It’s easy to see how it should be
When it’s all in the past
One of these days all of these things
Well they’ll make me laugh

You could be here
You could be there
You could be anywhere you like

You could be here
You could be there
You could be sleeping under the trees
Tonight

See the black swan moving on
It don’t need to get it on
It just keeps on moving on

One of these days we’ll lift the haze
We’re living in a daze
It just keeps on moving on

16. Everyday Drone

Wakes up in the morning
Goes out for a walk around town

Looking for those old friends
Well they ain’t nowhere to be found

Well it’s better them staying at home
Following the everyday drone
But I don’t want to tell you what to do
And I’m just talking as a friend

Playing rock and roll
You’re trying to find your own soul

Still all those cheap tricks
Can’t find no quick fix to get you home

You say you’re better off on your own
I’m getting tired of hearing you moan
But I don’t want to tell you what to do
I’m just talking as a friend

And I’m just talking as a friend

Well I guess I’ll just keep waiting for yesterday
‘Til I find where I’ve gone wrong
Well I guess I’ll just keep thinking ’bout yesterday
‘Til I find where I belong
I belong

In your private universe
Somehow you believe you can do anything
Still those cheap tricks
Keep hanging you upon on a string

Searching for the diamonds and the pearls
Search for the answer at the bottom of the world
Still it’s waiting, waiting for the girl
Gonna take her round the world

Gonna take her round the world
Gonna take her round the world
Gonna take her round the world
Gonna take her round the world

17. It Occurred to Me

It occurred to me
That I was free
And everything
Was momentary

I was riding on
This old song
And everything
Was moving on

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

And everything
Was so unclear
I was living on
Shaken with fear

I listened to
What the brothers said
Running round
Going red

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

I was standing on
The other side
I was feeling strange
Half alive

There was no one near
And no one round
I picked it up
And got on down

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
You can’t keep moving but you leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind

Trust your body and your soul and your spirit and your mind
If you wanna be free you can’t leave yourself behind
