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!

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

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”

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

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

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
