Lyrics

Undivided

I can see those storm clouds forming
Tiny hands, doing the choking
I can see those vultures circling
Then they fly away

Tuesday Morning and the kids are laughing
No one knows, just why they’re dancing
People think that they’re taking chances
Then they hide away.

I don’t know, if this is the life for me
All I want to do is count my ABC’s
Maybe hang around and see
your face on the silver screen

I read the papers and it’s all been bad news
someone tried to sell me some sad blues
I turned around, I bought some dreams
and then I slide away

I wanna dance, wanna be a rock star
Prolly know, I won’t get very far
doesn’t matter, gonna sing my song to you anyway

People smile as the pennies trickle down to them
Spend a dime, and hope it comes around again
Thank their stars as they bite the hand that feeds

Me? I’m simple. I know exactly what I like
A song, a dream and a chance to sleep with you tonight
Wake up hungry, fill my cup and then I try again

I can see that dark sky falling
Undivided, at least until morning
Pick a side, the wars’ begun, until we find a way
no one knows, just when it started
Must’ve been when reason departed
Now it’s here, I wonder how we’re gonna save the day

I don’t know, if it’s every gonna be alright
I wanna come, and sing it to you every night
Take my chances, try to find myself another way
rain is falling, I’ll dance in-between
no one seems, to know exactly what I mean
close my ears. so I don’t have to hear my neighbors scream –

Long Way From Home

Long way from home
sunrise moon shines down to greet me
summer’s come and gone
only you know how I’m feeling
all the faces change
all these days are never ending
feel the distance grow
can’t seem to tell those dreams from memories

And she knows me
Walks into my dreams
Tells me that she always loved me
And she loves me
Dances on a rainbow,
Eyes of fire that see right thru me
and she needs me
cries down from her window
wants to walk right here beside me

We’ll be leaving now
Don’t shed a tear and don’t be sorry
Nothing lasts forever
Nothing but the earth and sky
And the road goes on
Don’t know the ending of this story
and the night grows long
Some days it seems like no one cares.

And she knows me
Walks into my dreams
Tells me that she always loved me
And she loves me
Dances on a rainbow,
Eyes of fire that see right thru me
and she sees me
still chasing yesterday
won’t be there til the sun’s behind me

She’s an angel mom
She might just be the one you sent me
I can hear her calling
it’s growing louder every day
I’m leaving Brokeland
Don’t shed a tear and don’t be sorry
Nothing lasts forever,
nothing but the night and day

And she knows me
Walks into my dreams
Tells me that she always loved me
And she loves me
Dances on a rainbow,
Eyes of fire that see right thru me
and she needs me
cries down from her window
wants to walk right here beside me

I’m leaving Brokeland now
I’m leaving Brokeland now
Don’t turn your back on me
cause I won’t be here anyhow

I’m heading to the west side
I’m running to the sunshine
Don’t bother waiting up
Cause I won’t be here in the morning.

West of Bergen

People always told me not to dream,
but i never listened anyway
They were dealing me kings over queens,
but I wound up losing every day
All those people would shake their heads
and say I wonder what he’s gonna be
I don’t wanna be the one to say “I told you”
but I told you.

I believe that something is coming my way
Everybody I know is living day by day
Meet me down on Malbone
That’s where I stay
Coulda done better, but life got in my way

Did I see you dancing in the moonlight
down by Ceasar’s bay
You were painting rainbows in the starlight
When I think I saw you glance my way
you were rolling past me in that Shelby
a twinkle in your eye
I don’t know what you’re thinking
but I see you smiling…

I believe, something good is coming our way
Everybody I know is down at Sheepshead bay
Meet me down at Owl’s head
That’s where I play
Coulda done better by life got in my way

I don’t know, but you look familiar
Have I seen you hear before?
Did I see you hanging around in L’amour
I ain’t looking for no favor
I ain’t trying to be your savior
I just want you here with me tonight
Here tonight!

I believe that something good is a coming our way
Everybody I know has got something to day
Meet me West of Bergen
That’s where I’ll be
Coulda done better, but life got in my way

Last Generation

 

This is the last generation
to see the earth and sky
Only generation
To never question why
Sweat my back in the wintertime
Don’t you think it’s great
contemplate my future
but its just a bit too late

Jesus can you help us?
Do you still believe in man?
Should I beg for your forgiveness
Do you really think I can?
see my mother dying and
lying on the floor
she screams and begs for mercy
but we kick her down some more.

This is the last generation
Last day today
Last generation
Last day to play

A pox upon your fathers house
for the sins of yesterday
a plague upon the nations
one that never goes away
should I pay for their transgressions
even though I did no wrong
Or should I lock myself inside my house
and write sympathetic songs

and now the Last Generation
They turn and go their way
no fear of ever dying
or at least that’s what they say
The Last Generation
They know about everything
Gonna take the time to save the world
and never sacrifice a thing

This is the last generation
Last day today
Last generation
Last day to play

This is the last…
