Intro/This is it…

This is it
This is what I was looking for
I had lost it
And I was beaten to the floor

Now I can sense
That this will fill me to the core
and in a sense
I’ ll be arriving to the shore

I will rise up to high
so cry and rise up the tides
All that you want

Remember when you kicked me on the ground
My head was in the sand for much too long
Remember when you held me to the ground
I hurt but still you kicked for much too long

Now your turn has come
you’ re on your own
and I won’ t hold the light to find your home
and if you need a hand when you’ re alone
you’ re gonna have to look inside your own

I will rise up to high
so cry and rise up the tides
All that you want
 

Karma Coal

I’ m a lucky man
cuz my woman she’ s trippin’ on me
She don’t know what I know
forgiveness on her karma soul

I’ m a funky man
There’ s a fountain pourin’ on me
Yeah I know what I know
There’ s a fire burnin’ the karma coal

Burnin’ the karma coal
burnin’ and burnin’ and burnin' karma coal

I never killed a man
But the time I paid it all right
Yeah I know that they know
So the weapon is burning my karma so

I never said to anybody that I love ‘em
I always had to go
I never took a stand, I never let ‘em know
But now I’ m free and I and I are burnin’ karma coal

Burnin’ the karma coal
burnin’ and burnin’ and burnin’ karma coal

I’ m a lucky man
cuz my woman she’ s tripping on me
She don’t know what I know
forgiveness on her Karma soul
I’ m a funky man
There’ s a fountain pourin’ on me
Yeah I know what I know
There’ s a fire burnin’ the Karma coal
 


The Healing

Now you got me started and I’ m ready for some sinnin’
So you got me thinking that I’ m jonesin' for your slippin’

You should know your healing someone
Can’ t you tell I’ m feeling someone

Hey you got me going yeah I’m waitin' and I’ m holdin’
Now’ s the time for moving how I wanna feel you lunging
Hey you got me beggin’ and I’ m bleedin’ and I’ m needin’
And since you got me singin’ need to tell you what I’ m feelin'

You should know your healing someone
Can’ t you tell I’ m feeling someone

OH I feel the thirst
Will I be the first
To harvest the burst
Of your monsoon tide

OH I feel the curse
Will I be the first
To harvest the burst
Of your moonlight slide

I heard you were a nursy
drippin’ off a remedy
How I sure believe
That I won’ t waste my time

You should know your healing someone
Can’ t you tell I’ m feeling someone
You should know your healing someone
Can’ t you tell I’ m feeling someone
 

Who’s Mister Harley

Did you stray from your home?
Did you walk out the door?
Did you stray from the pack?
Did you leave all behind?

Who are you? 2X

Did you hear you brother talk?
Did you hear your mother say?
Did you hear anybody else but you say
Anything anyway?

Did you hear you brother talk?
Did you hear your mother say?
Did you hear anybody else but you say
Anything anyway?

Who are you? 2X

I know what you think
I know what you feel
I know what you think
I feel what you feel

Who are you? 2X
 

The Shack

Kick back in the shack
I know you really wanna be here
and that’s clear

Lay back in the sack
I know you really wanna be here
My dear

Boom! Blast from the past
you know what’ s on the weather forecast
make it last

So put on your sexy suit
and get the owls to hoot
In the back or on the hood in a loop

Common you got me right in the mood
to shoot, to root, to boot
gimme the hollywood scoop

Put on your sexy boots
and get the owls to hoot
In the shack or in the hood in a loop

And I can’ t believe that I still can’ t can’t believe
that I know what I know
now knowing that I believe in what I know now

And I can’ t believe that I still can’ t can’t believe
that I know what I know
now knowing that I believe in what I know now
So what do I know?
 

Dad’ s Tune

So what?
Are you in the black?
Taking care of your sweet heart

So What?
Are you in the red
(or)Having a sweet time in your bed

Somehow
Guess you got your tune right
During the last big night

So now
You should turn on the light
So I am sure that you feel right

So now you should gimme a call
before you head out to the next ball

So now you should gimme a call
before you head out to your next ball

...
 

Park Bench

I’ m ok, I’ m alright
I’ m the beast and you know I’ m right 2x

Sittin’ on a park bench
In the middle of Noranda
Sippin’ on a liter
you know it’ s just like an agenda

I don’ t know what you’ ve been told but I’ ll
Walk away unscarred
I won’ t mind what you’ ll be saying
Once you’ re through with me

Holdin’ up a candle
You know it’ s just a like a ritual
Lyin’ in a puddle
You see me smilin’ like a turtle

I don’ t know what you’ ve been told but I’ ll
Walk away unscarred
I won’ t mind what you’ ll be saying
Once you’ re through with me

Walking round in circles
Here comes the hobo with the shuffle
Ever since the cradle
I’ ve been a dealin’ with the devil

I’ m ok, I’ m alright
I’ m the beast and you know I’ m right 2x

I don’ t know what you’ ve been told but I’ ll
Walk away unscarred
I won’ t mind what you’ ll be saying
Once you’ re through with me
 

Without You

A piece of your heart I’ll go for that
And I am done taking for granted
If I wanna take, I need to give
I' m ready for that now
I’m ready for that now

What did you think I could do
All alone, without you
What did you think I could do
All alone, without you

I’ll give you a hundred, maybe more
As long as you don’t take it for granted
And if what you give comes dancin’ in
I’ ll sing you my best one
I’ll sing you my best one

What did you think I could do
All alone, without you
What did you think I could do
All alone, without you

You told me that I was a drug for you
I’m a junky for you too
You’re making me feel like nothing else
No rehab for me now

What did you think I could do
All alone, without you
What did you think I could do
All alone, without you
 

Red Car

I’ m driving cuz you broke my heart
All alone now in my red car
I’ m speeding through all my life's worth
Down way high on an old scar

Flat tire I’ m in the ditch now
Lost control and now I can’ t call
you broke me and now I broke myself
A broken headlight and a bloody car

So fuck it, be it, I’ m gonna beat it

So you drove me
out of your reach
Will this make me
Once more lost at sea

Broken glass is in my head now
A memory of you comes in a blue light
I hope they find me dead inside me
so you can tell my brother for me

I’ll never be, I’ ll never be the same
I’ ll never see, I’ll never see the same
I’ll never be, I’ ll never be the same
when they find me

I’ll never be, I’ ll never be the same
I’ ll never see, I’ll never see the same
I’ll never be, I’ ll never be the same
when they find me

If they find me
 

Ball And Chain

Yeah I was dragging my feet
With you there tied to me
In spite of the weight
Of your golden heart
My beloved ball and chain

I felt so suddenly light
Like the feather from a bird
who's just gotten shot down in full flight

So we closed down the shop
You unwelded the chains
A slap in the face
and a punch in the heart
But I was me once again

I felt so suddenly light
Like the feather from a bird
who's just gotten shot down in full flight

I felt so suddenly light
like a feather floating free
As the vuture’s wings joined in a prayer

I felt so suddenly light
like a feather floating free
As the vuture’s wings joined in a prayer
 

Panamean Girlfriend

Me and my panamean girlfriend
We write
So we don’t have to be there telling lies
To the curious

We can be anything we want to
Gangsters
Holding up a bank or fireflies
So delirious

Last night I was the king of England
She was
A painting on a wall and watched me rule
We were famous

She blinked and I became a raven
She jumped
from the frame and landed on the floor
She was gorgeous
