Mr. Apocalypse is Coming

In times of material darkness When bankers rule the lands Hardship is the common state Which no one understands The bankers are a singular beast Most like a crocodile swine Their eyes are red with avarice They're hungry all the time There's revolution in the air Something makes no sense It's the bankers are responsible And not the governments The bankers buy the governments They buy the armies too And with ghost money that they print They make war on me and you CHORUS The bankers are the problem They are the devil's kin They have no human conscience The public cannot win The bankers are the problem They must be taken down Strip and tar and feather them Run them out of town The public mind has been deceived Trapped inside a game With bankers holding all the cards They got themselves to blame It never should have gone this far We're trapped in Animal Farm The swine are running everything And man, they mean you harm The time has come to bring them down The time has come to break the lie Step away from the corporate mind And let this system die Step back from the machinery Don't work, don't vote, don't fight Let the darkness eat the darkness Step into the light CHORUS The bankers are the problem They are the devil's kin They have no human conscience The public cannot win The bankers are the problem They must be taken down Strip and tar and feather them Run them out of town

Materialism 05:33
Materialism is a darkness in the mind It concentrates and presses It wears pretty dresses It gets harder, the deeper that you go Yeah, tell me something I don't know Love is a strong power That by nature sets you free Fear makes separation It's the whip-hand of the nation It will drive you into slavery as you go Yeah, tell me something I don't know CHORUS Materialism is a fire Materialism is a grave Materialism, it's on television It's on the walls of Plato's cave You can feel the pressure, it increases as you go Yeah, tell me something I don't know Materialism has a stable full of whores That bump and grind together, they party on forever When you reach out for them, they turn to smoke Yeah, tell me something I don't know Wall to wall at Walmart The monkey wears a crown It's calling on a cellphone Got a killer ring tone Sounds like crackling bacon on the grill Yeah, tell me something I don't know CHORUS Materialism is a fire Materialism is a grave Materialism, it's on television It's on the walls of Plato's cave You can feel the pressure, it increases as you go Yeah, tell me something I don't know Materialism is a darkness in the heart It takes you from behind It occupies your mind And this what you get From going with the flow Oh, tell me something I don't know Spill this race Spill with hungry ghosts It's the ultimate calamity That ends up with insanity Pretty soon, there's nowhere left to go Oh, tell me something I don't know

Down by that river That flows over Jordan Sail all those angels But nobody saw them Love was the music That ran thru my heart Then it opened my life up Then it tore me apart I don't know when it happened Or when it will end There are no rainbows For what might have been CHORUS The more that we struggle The less we are free Entangled in heartbreak Cold lies and deceit God is much wiser We still seek to know Try as hard as you can And then you let go Try as hard as you can And then you let go Let me swim where the clouds pass And never look down I'll love you forever Though I fall to the ground Will it grant me a freedom Will it make me forget Are there dreams still coming That I haven't dreamed yet Will I fall in the moonlight Will dusk give me shade Will I cry in the darkness Will I ever escape CHORUS The more that we struggle The less we are free Entangled in heartbreak Cold lies and deceit God is much wiser We still seek to know Try as hard as you can And then you let go Try as hard as you can And then you let go

Shining light, that fills the emptiness of space Shining light, I see it shining in your face Shining in the sun, shining in the sea Shining in the deepest part of me Shining light, that all the angels dance within Shining light, the open heart is beckoning Shining light, it's not the city on the shore Shining light, all I want is more CHORUS A lonely highway, times I lost my way By the grace of one who loves me I'm still here today What is the texture of a dream? What makes things what they seem? What they seem, not what they are Oh, shining light, shining light Shining light, that fills the emptiness of space Shining light, I see it shining in your face Shining in the sun, shining in the sea Shining in the deepest part of me Shining light, there is no danger can come near Shining light, let us put an end to fear Shining light, where darkness used to be Shining light, you have eyes to see CHORUS What a lonely highway, times I lost my way By the grace of one who loves me I'm still here today What is the texture of a dream? What makes things what they seem? What they seem, not what they are Oh, shining light, shining light

I believe in love It transmits in a touch And those who love intensely are forgiven much I believe in things I'll never see down here That everything I see will disappear Everything I see will disappear I walk alone through this dance of death I count each number when passing breath I watch the madness as it comes into bloom I watch the monsters in their private rooms The twisted and perverse have become the daily norm I see the silent animals Long before the storm Then my Lady Nature leaves The goodness goes with her Flowers leave the colors and the trees Nothing is the way it used to be I was glad to have her by me She was inclined to stay The forces of the darkness came to operate by day The good and sacred creatures saw the writing in the sky Maybe war and worse were coming Some fewer than knew why It isn't the way of things It's just the way they are When men are beasts and let her go And what they lose they never know I see the life we could have had I see the life there is I watch the sun and moon and stars And all they have to give I see the mountains and the sea Some are slaves and some are free How it is in every case, 'til it's gone without a trace Tell your lies to others you tell them to yourself In the end your judgment says there is nobody else I believe in love It transmits in a touch And those who love intensely are forgiven much I believe in things I'll never see down here That everything I see will disappear Everything I see will disappear I walk alone through this dance of death I count each number when passing breath I watch the madness as it comes into bloom I watch the monsters in their private rooms The twisted and perverse have become the daily norm I see the silent animals Long before the storm I believe that everything Everything I see will disappear

No sons of the empire, turn around and wave Be free forever never be a slave Dancing to Clannad, I walk on the wire But who can find the truth in the words of a liar And be riding, riding with an Angel of Light Riding with an Angel of Light In the armor of God on the highway of night Shining with love, it's always alright When you're riding, riding with an Angel of Light She's there by my side She's deep at the core I can't handle it but I still want more If you're rich in your heart you can never be poor You can't find it here so walk out of this door And leave my window if you can't find the door Alone with the Angel of Light Both of us riding it never feels tight Turn to wave at the spiral of light Riding with an Angel of Light Some say I'm crazy, but I know I'm sane You want me to play but I'm hip to the game I'm the new age redeemer With the halt and the lame So how come the picture don't fit in the frame Here we go now to the heart of the game Me and the Angel of Light The mist closes in, we're soon out of sight The moons feels so close now, could touch it tonight Riding with an Angel of Light We're climbing Jacob's ladder We're standing on the ground Heaven forms around us, life flows out of sound The frequency vibration going up and down The Angel's on the staircase I think we'll hang around And keep climbing Climbing into the light Alright with my Angel of Light In the armor of God on the highway of night Shining with love, it's always alright When you're riding, riding with the Angel of Light Riding with the Angel, nothing comes by chance Shining out of sight like a stained-white radiance They wander here forever, it makes no kind of sense There is no past or future in the present tense My faith is all I need, but you want evidence Riding with an Angel of Light It's early evening when everything's alright 'cos I'm riding with an Angel of Light

I'm drunk on the wine of an old love of mine And the sweet singing rivers are intoxicating me With the undiscovered mysteries of your skin CHORUS Safe in The Nostalgia Zone Where no one has to be alone Or remember why they came Or where they've been I could have been in the movies But I went behind the scenes It's hard to be off the cuff When you don't have any sleeves I could have been somebody else Or lived inside my shadow self It's hard to ride the ocean When you're turning on the wheel There's things I should have said There's things I should have done The numbers don't impress so much When the sum of them is one I'm drunk on the wine of an old love of mine And the sweet singing rivers are intoxicating me With the undiscovered mysteries of your skin CHORUS Safe in The Nostalgia Zone Where no one has to be alone Or remember how they came Or where they've been Live in double-jeopardy With ourself as the enemy It's hard to keep a simple mind When you're drunk, too hot and sweet I wish I knew the way on through The worlds outside of time I'm trapped in sticky metaphors Like some twisted nursery rhyme This probably makes no sense We're never in the present tense It's hard to cut the whole thing loose When you don't know how to breathe I'm drunk on the wine of an old love of mine And the sweet singing rivers are intoxicating me With the undiscovered mysteries of your skin CHORUS Safe in The Nostalgia Zone Where no one has to be alone Or remember how they came Or where they've been

No lions raging No sparrows falling No lizards walking All there is Is my love calling me Across the following sea No dogs barking No birds singing Just the earth speaking Before the trembling And the shaking begins And hope for mercy for the uncovering of sins CHORUS Something is moving under the scenery Borne in the darkness Deep in the dark of the sea Major is waiting while Angels watch Demons in the chapel Deep in the hearts of the sleepers Who refuse to be free Refuse to awaken It's coming in on the following wind Final approach what hasn't been Seems like forever this less than sorrow Changes are coming, maybe tomorrow Men in their suits better hide Men with the guns better run Men with the chains and the confidence games Gonna get burned by the one So many thought it would go on forever They had all the locks and the keys Well they thought this time it would be different They would bring the world to its knees Thought they were masters of all they surveyed All the darkness marched on around them The powerful armies all melted away There was no one left to protect them CHORUS Something is moving under the scenery Borne in the darkness Deep in the depths of the sea Major is waiting while Angels watch Demons in the chapel Deep in the hearts of the sleepers Who refuse to be free Refuse to awaken

She has got no questions About what is right for her And he has got no answers Cos he lives inside of her Both of them got something From the things they're going thru It may be a mystery to you But then, you're a mystery too Peoples lives are strange And can't be understood Sometimes I try to help them out But it don't do no good They got that private suffering They feel it in the dark They keep on circling the block And they can't find a place to park CHORUS They got the blues inside them But no music's coming out They got that crazy old time angry blues That makes them twist and shout They got the blues that horrid blue And blues that won't turn black Well they say the white man's crazy I ain't arguing with that All the unreality lives go by On this reality TV They talk about their fuzzy pets And what they like to eat They pick their noses on camera While they're singing out of tune Just tell them "Ricky sent ya" And they will offer you the moon They're going nuts in Florida About feeding tubes and WHAT? They're sleeping in their lounge chairs Like a junkie on the nod???? They listen to that phony news That tells them what to think Their minds are in the closet And their hearts are on the brink CHORUS They got the blues inside them But no music's coming out They got that crazy old time angry blues That makes them twist and shout They got the blues that haunted blue And blues that won't turn black Well they say the white man's crazy I ain't arguing with that It's another kind of blues harp That bought Hadey to her knees And the ones that make it happen Also run the charities They're going to make a fortune From the rock god's telethon Pushing his Clinton They just keep on keeping on I don't want to be a cynic You know I want to believe But monsters walk among us With a dagger up their sleeve They murder and they torture folk Across the Middle East The Bankers finance all of that To feed the bodies to the beast CHORUS They got the blues inside them But no music's coming out They got that old time angry blues That makes them twist and shout They got the blues that haunted blue And blues that won't turn black Well they say the white man's crazy I ain't arguing with that

If you were free If you were fortunate enough to be free If you were good And born to brotherhood CHORUS If you were wide awake, done with all your dreaming If you were clear about what others couldn't see If you came upon the truth, saw into the meaning Then I believe, that you could dance with me You could dance before the wind Dance in and back again Dance instead of dying, like they do You could find the hidden way Then you would be free Then I know, you could dance with me CHORUS If you were wide awake, done with all your dreaming If you were clear about what others couldn't see If you came upon the truth, saw into the meaning Then I believe, you could dance with me If you were strong And held out all along, all along If you were real, like no appearance could conceal You would shine, you would shine CHORUS If you were wide awake, done with all your dreaming If you were clear about what others could not see You could come upon the truth, never lose the meaning Then I believe, you could dance with me You could dance outside of time To a timeless state of mind Dance instead of lying, like they do If you could touch the secret truths And find eternal youth I believe, that you could dance with me CHORUS If you were wide awake, done with all your dreaming If you were clear about what others couldn't see If you could come upon the truth, and see into the meaning Then I believe, you could dance with me You could dance before the wind Dance in and back again Dance instead of dying, like they do You could find the hidden way Then you would be free And then I know, you could dance with me

I have to walk in the sunlight I have to sit in the sun The Lord of Heaven is smiling Smiling on everyone I to have to wait in the present There's nowhere else I can be I have to stop all my thinking Until I'm no longer me Boats float by in the ocean Clouds float by in the sky Existence goes on forever And nobody knows why We come and go If you wonder why For this demon's laugh And Angels Cry And you wonder why The darkness of end times leads into the light And the dawn brings an end to night They says Jesus lives on the hardline The devil, he lives in the mind I'm crucified here between them Hanging on the cross of time Somehow my heart can transcend this Somehow it rises again As it was the beginning So it will be at the end Vanity darks every footstep Howls at the full of the moon Voice in the darkness is singing Sometimes it carries out of tune We come and go If you wonder why For this demon's laugh And Angels cry The darkness of end times feed into the light Dawn will bring an end to the night

I'm bringing home the starlight With no bottom in my pail In tranquil worlds forgotten with no tiger on our tail Is it the dust I'm made of That has me walking blind You fill up and surround me In the darkness of my mind There's no one can oppose me Make way I'm coming through I'm walking through my falling down Into the heart of you You can have these worlds of splendor That wrinkle and decay I take my passion timeless And help is on the way CHORUS Help is on the way To the better part of me Help is pushing sunlight Through that ancient Judas tree From the compost of corruption Comes the power to transform All the worlds we'll ever know You keep us cool you make us warm You're the bending end of silence My true serenity You're the timeless heart inside my own "Look, it's only me" "Look, it's only me" Help is on the way Help is on the way Dry your tears upon my heart 'cause it is only me and "It is only me." "It is only me." To the dying gulf of Mexico In the Fukushima rain I can feel the mountains tremble I know love will win again No matter who opposes love Love will find a way To break our hearts and leave it smart Upon the light of day I've been hungry for the homeland I've been gone for lifetimes now I see the flames that flicker In the fireplace tonight I'm looking through the ever leaves In the darkling of the night From a place that is the future My god it sure is bright CHORUS Help is on the way To the better part of me Help is pushing sunlight Through that ancient Judas tree From the compost of corruption Comes the power to transform All the worlds we'll ever know You keep us cool you make us warm You're the bending end of silence My true serenity You're the timeless heart inside my own "Look, it's only me." "Look, it's only me." Help is on the way Help is on the way Dry your tears upon my heart 'cause "It is only me" "It is only me" "It is only me" There's no one can oppose me Make way I'm coming through I'm walking through my falling down Into the heart of you" I've been drunk on wine and whiskey I've been stoned and I've been shunned But all of that's behind me now I believe I've found the one I took some lives and detours As it took its time again But I am on the near horizon now On that you can depend They've been taking bets about me For several thousand years You can't compute the agony That ocean is my tears CHORUS And help is on the way To the better part of me Help is pushing sunlight Through my ancient Judas tree From the compost of corruption Comes the power to transform All the worlds we'll ever know You keep us cool you make us warm You're the bending end of silence My true serenity You're the timeless heart inside my own "Look, it's only me." "Look, it's only me." Help is on the way Help is on the way Dry your tears upon my heart "It is only me." "It is only me." "It is only me." What was it I was doing As all this time went by I was hiding in the underbrush And now I don't know why Now the moment is on us As we see the living light Make ashes from the darkness My god it sure is bright It's a strange intoxication That I'm impatient for you now As long as this has taken I should be stoical somehow But there's no way up around it It could be a million years But I would keep on a coming 'cause that's the death of fear CHORUS Yes, help is on the way To the better part of me Help is pushing sunlight Through my ancient Judas tree From the compost of corruption Comes the power to transform All the worlds we'll ever know You keep us cool you make us warm You're the bending end of silence My true serenity You're the timeless heart inside my own "Look it's only me." "Look it's only me."

Racing down that highway With no destination known It's the speed of things that drives you Not the whole world getting home Now home's an empty nest of anger Where no harmony resides You want that crazy reaching out there Not the solitude inside You want those burning cities You want the power and the gold You want that grab of power To possess all you can hold You think that no one can stop you This is what you've been told You've been at this game forever And the game is getting old CHORUS Mr. Apocalypse is coming He's rising into view just like the sun He's bringing living truth and bringing freedom And a wake-up call designed for everyone It might be the very thing you've been longing for Or it might be the very last thing on your mind It could be something you sent on ahead of you Or it could be something you left behind He's long and tall and slender And he's got a walking stick You'll be changed forever if you get hit by it He's coming for their Zionists and all the bankers too And if you don't behave yourself He's coming after you There's no way to stop him He can't be bribed or bought And he's sweeter than the air in spring And meaner than you thought You're the deer inside his headlights If you're the kind that hunts by night And no one stays anonymous When he gets you in his sights CHORUS Mr. Apocalypse is coming He's rising into view just like the sun He's bringing living truth, he's bringing freedom And a wake-up call designed for everyone It might be the last thing you're longing for Or it might something that's been on your mind It could be something you sent on ahead of you Or it could be something you left behind
