All That Is Good

Where does the misunderstanding  come from,
Demanding that we be outstanding and then some?
Perfection never was a requirement although some may say
we desired it.
So then for times when things get old I might get cynical
I see that I don't see.
 
chorus:
In honesty there's room for improvement
thoughts may change the, the truth be told,
A closed mind will leave you empty
Use your mind to use your soul.
 
Alert the press, Their dogmas are a mess
Opinions shift, a broken sift, an empty hand.
and billboards ask, "were  do they stand."
Do all streams lead to one sea?
 
chorus 2
Logically there's room for all questions.  
Though the answers aren't all known.
Objectivity's the myth of plenty,
Who doubt his truth within their soul.
 

Dandelions

In a field of yellow flowers, underneath the sun,
bluest eyes that spark with lightning, boy with shoes undone.
He's young, so full of hope reveling in tiny dreams,
filling up his arms with flowers right for giving any queen.
Running to her beaming bright, while cradling his prize.
A flickering of yellow light within his mothers eyes
She holds them to her heart keeping them where they'll be safe,
clasped within her very marrow, dandelions in a vase.
 
Chorus:
she sees love where anyone else would see weed
all hope is found here is every thing  he needs
 
Fathomless you endless mercy
weight I could not lift.
Where do I fit in this puzzle what good are these gifts?
Not a martyr nor a saint scarcely can I struggle through
all that I have ever wanted, Was I give my best to you.
 
Chorus:
Lord, search my heart, create in me something clean,
Dandelions, You see flowers in these weeds
 
Bridge:
Gently lifting hands to heaven,
A Father sings over his children,
Loving them so very much.
More than words could warrant.
Deeper than the darkest blue,
More than sacrifice could merit,
Lord I give my heart to you
 

One Girl Army

Here lies the old myth,  breaking the mold with,
truth can take away the trickery.
Twenty centuries of progress,
suffer slowly as we regress,
losing headway to ourselves.
Behold the covers, the sisters,
 the mothers, the daughters,
the spouses, on the magazines.
Truth has been abused.
 How could she fill those shoes?
Propaganda meant to fuel their schemes
 
Chorus:
She is strong but never silent sure of where
her truth/strength comes from.
One day, One Girl Army will over come.
 
Treading the current, issues at hand,
shifting we sway from justice and then back again.
What we have broke he has made right,
lifting her up, giving birth to Jesus Christ
 

Sweet Talkin' Woman

By Jeff Lynne

Where did you go?
I was searching, searching.
On a one way street.
I was hoping for a chance to meet,
I was waiting for the operator on the line.
She's gone so long.
What can I do? Where can she be?
No, no, no,
Don't know what I'm gonna do,
I gotta get back to you
 
Chorus:
(you gotta) Slow down, slow down,
sweet talkin' woman slow down.
You got me runnin' run, run,
You got me searchin',
Hold on, hold on,
Sweet Talking Lola hold on,
So sad if that's the way its over.
 
I was Workin'. many days go by.
I was thinkin about the lonely night
Communications break down all around.
She's gone so long.
What can I do?
No, no, no,
Don't know what I'm gonna do.
I gotta get back to you.
 
I've been living,
Living.
On a dead end street
I've been asking,
Asking.
Everybody I meet.
Insufficient data coming through.
She's gone so long.
What could I do? Where could she be?
No, no, no
Don't know what I'm gonna do.
I gotta get back to you.
Ohhhhhhh!
 

When I Go Out

WHEN I GO OUT I PLAY IN THE STREET
I GET HIT BY CARS I MAKE MASHED POTATOES I GET HIT BY CARS

 

Get Your Riot Gear

Something's stirring in the air, a victory?
A time bomb ticking to explode, three, two, one and go.
something passive, something not.
Billy clubs out. Call the S.W.A.T.
Rabid Dogs with out a leash, is this how you keep the peace?
You want riots? wear your riot gear.
You want  violence? Then shoot some tear gas in air.
It its written on your badge, to serve and protect.
It seems you only serve your self protecting your own neck.
Controlling with fear, menacing and threatening.
You wanted my respect you better start respecting me.
 
Chorus:
Go and get you riot gear, swing your girlie all around.
We'll be dancing on the cinders as the town is burning down.
Swing her around. Burn it all down.
 
Something smelled of power tripping
Crowd control was rank
Tear gas everyone down town what you did really stank.
Legislation, never made you judge and jury
Marshal law now, beat the kids down with no worries
 

The Untimely Death of Brad

Here is a tale, its spoken word-for-word.
It may be abominable, but yes, it must be told
Nauseating at first, you can expect to worst.
So listen closely, as the plot unfolds....
 
I might stretch the truth, maybe a little lie.
There was a boy named Brad, he played trumpet and he died.
Too young  for him to cease, why? we haven't got a clue.
It's on the internet so then it must be true.
 
Chorus:
The untimely death of Brad,
How sad it must have been.
If you see him anywhere, remember to console him.
 
I cure the day, I ever met the boy.
Only the good die young to say.
The details of his death are vague,
Unbelievable is seems, as if his passing was only a dream.
 Catastrophe, calamity 
What will we tell his mother now?
Cataclysmic, a tragic mishap,
I just heard that their band is breaking up.
 
I hear his trumpet, his voice rings in my ear
It sometimes seems he's standing very near.
I don't believe in ghosts, I've never seen one.
But isn't his trumpet playing haunting on this album
 
OUTRO:
A day that lives in infamy,
In horror we behold.
His passing, his memory.
But the truth must be told
