Track Name: New York To Paris
From New York To Paris
There’s a lot less work to do
The Champs Elysee’s grimy
Just like Park Avenue
The city walls record it
Red white and blue
A lot of people they just wonder
I guess that you do too

What are going to do when the war comes down?
What are you going to do when the war comes
What are you going to do when the war comes down
What are you going to do when the war comes

From New York To Paris
Expediency rules
The verichip is comin
For the genius & for the fool

And everything it is bar coded
Like me and you
This is the death of privacy
Governed by material rules

What are you going to do when the war comes down
What are you going to do when the war comes
What are you going to do when the war comes down

From New York to Paris
There’s a lot less work to do
The Champs-Élysées its so grimy
Like Park Avenue

Same ol
Same ol

Going to fight?
Going to run away?
Gonna run away!
Track Name: Its Not Easy To
I can never understand that girl
No matter how hard I try
I can never understand that girl
I guess I will by and by

Its not easy to
I can never understand the world
No matter how hard I try
I can never understand the world
I guess I will by and by
Its not easy to
Understand that girl
And understand the world

And I can never understand myself
No matter how hard I try I can never understand myself I guess
I will by and by

Its not easy to Understand that girl
Or understand The world
Or understand my place
In the scheme of it all
How can you ever understand the light
When you’re walking in the dark
How can you ever understand the light

I want to walk In the light
Don’t want to walk In the dark
I want to walk In the Light
Don’t want to walk In the dark
I want to walk in the light

So I come to understand that girl
So I come to understand the world
So I come to understand myself
And so I understand there has to be a better plan
Track Name: Kings Cross
Somebody told me
Kings Cross means money
I stand here singing
They stand there flinging them
Stones not money
They think its funny

Born again raving
Luke you need saving
You don’t have no mission
You don’t have
My religion
You play for money
You don’t make much

By you know one day
I gonna break away

I might settle in the country
I might settle in the town
I might jump in the Tasman

And drown

Somebody told me
Play “golden oldies”
Not what you’re feeling
You got to play
What the people are dreaming
You gotta play
What they know already
Unfamiliarity breeds contempt
You see there’s an exception to every proverb

And you’re living it son
And you wanna follow your heart
Good luck
You gonna need it
He was right
The more it hurts
The more it should
You play for yourself and the money’s no good
But sometimes you can come in out of the cold
You can rest your soul
Here I am
Here you are
Oh yeah
Track Name: Greenfields
Search the green painted fields
And the blue painted sky
You know this feeling
That some day you must fly
Free as a bird
Cause she’s broken your cage
She only pays
An esteemable wage

Listen what she says
Cause she knows well
You know the truth by what she can tell
She’s so innocent
She’s so fair
She’s broken your cage and you take to the air

Take the feeling she found
And to you freely gave
You give it again
And by that power you’re saved
Can you believe
Tell me can you believe
Its only by giving we truly receive

God of all mercy and God of all love
God of the mouse and the cat and the dog
God of the land
God of the sea

God of the man and the child in you
God of the man and child in me

Search the green painted field and the blue painted sky You know this kind of love
Know this kind of love
It never can die
Search the green painted field
And the blue painted sky

# inspired by Caroline Armstrong’s poem “Search the Green Painted Fields”
Track Name: Follow Me
I am the answer
Give it all up
Follow me when you drink of my cup
Follow me
I set you free

I came in love and my will be done
I am the one and the only son

If you don’t make up your mind
How will you stand in the testing time
Follow me
I will set you free
If you follow me
I set you free

If you follow me
I will set you free
If you follow me

I am the answer
I am the question
Mine is the death and the resurrection
I hold the key to the door to perfection
Follow me it’s a new direction in your life
And you know my name
My name is Jesus Christ
I am the way
I am the truth
I am the life
"Follow me”
That’s what he said
Track Name: Not A Machine
You are not a machine
You are not mechanical
You are not a robot
You are a human being
Not a machine

Yes you are human
You were never meant
To be a slave

Never meant
To be a slave
You are not mechanical
You are not pneumatic
And this is no Brave New World

It isn’t brave
And the more things change
The more they remain
The same

You meant to be a slave
To the things that you have made
You were never meant to be a slave
To the machine

Not a machine
Not a machine
Not a machine
Not a machine

You are human
You were never meant to be a slave
To the things that you have made
Track Name: Limited Liability
Limited liability
The world is on fire
With the fire of desire
You can sell anything
With the fire of desire
Burning in our veins
Roaring like a freight train

Sending kids to war
To fight in the name of God knows what for
Dying like dogs
In the desert sun
Instructed
To turn the desert into glass
Come home in a box
With the flag draped over it
All in the name of this desperate game

Too young to die
Too young to die
Too young to die
Too young to die

What’s in a name
To a dead GI

Limited Liability

The world is on fire
With the fire of greed in the midst of desperate need The world is on fire
The world is on fire

Too young to die
Too young to die
Too young to die

When you ask for water
In the desert
When you feel like you could die
When you need the pure water of love
When you ask for water
That don’t mean gasoline

Too young to die
Too young to die
Too young to die

It don’t mean gasoline
The world is on fire
Too young to die
The world is on fire

We need the pure
Pure
Water of love
So people People!
Come on people
Lets stop the war
Track Name: The Sound /live /church/07
Hindus say
“It all started with a sound
That God is clothed in sound
Christians say it was spoken out in a word from God
And that’s a sound
Steve Hawkins says it started with a bang
And a bang is a sound
Hello Steve
So you see Science and spirit and agree

That it started
With a sound

It all started with a sound
It started with a sound
Look you here this solid ground
We’re living in deep space
And the centers any place
Yet nowhere to be found
It all started with a sound
With a “Let there be light!”

It all started With a sound
It started with a sound
Look you here this solid ground
We’re living in deep space
And the center’s anyplace
Yet nowhere to be found
It all started with a sound

There’s an ozone hole
In the human soul

There’s a molten core
In the human heart
It all started with a sound
It all started with a sound
It all started With a sound
There’s an ozone
There’s a human soul

And we’re living in
The fragile skin
And we don’t know where we did begin
Unless
It started With a word
Track Name: Mona Lisa /live/church 07
I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
Thru plate glass
Let me see

Winning smile and
Millions feed her
I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
Yeah

I Sold my house
I Sold my car
I even sold my Martin guitar
Sold my house
Sold my car
I even sold
My brand new Stratocaster
I was going to get to see
A Leonardo Da Vinci
That’s good enough for you

If its
Good enough for me
Good enough for you
Good enough for me
Good enough for you

I say captain
Say what?
Captain
Say what?

Well I sold my house
And I sold my car
And I sold my Martin guitar
I’m flying high
In a seven four seven
And I’m cruising high feeling like
I’m in a seventh heaven
Air hostess pours a G&T
Feeling right friendly
But you’re not Madonna
And you’re not in the groove
And you’re not Leonardo
And you’re not in the Louvre

I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
Thru plate glass they let me see
Winning smile and millions feed her

I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
I’m in love with the Mona Lisa

Oh yeah
Well I got to Paris
Took a taxi to the Louvre
I’m feeling jet lagged
But you know I’m in the groove

And there’s Japanese, Cantonese, Lebanese, Taiwanese, Ceylonese turning into Shrilankees, Czechoslovakanese, Hungarians, Kiwis ... waiting for something to happenese

And there’s God damned Yankees

They’re not singing my song

They’re singing Paul Simon
“Got a Nikon camera gotta take a photograph
Mamma don’t take my Kodachrome away
When I think about the crap I learned at high school Wonder I can think at all”
Thank ya Paul

I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
Thru plate glass they let me see
Winning smile and millions feed her

I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
I’m in love with the Mona Mona Lisa
I’m in love with the Leonardo Da Vinci
I’m in love with the Virgin Airlines air hostess who’s nice to me

I’m in love for the very first time
I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
Thru plate glass they let me see her
Winning smile and millions feed her
I’m in love with the Mona Lisa
