Rocketship 04:10
Rocket Ships gonna take me away Rocket Ships gonna take me away Rocket Ships gonna take me away Bring me back on a better day... I don't need no nuclear bomb To keep my sweet white body from harm I don't need any more police To make it safe for me to walk the streets where I live... 'Cos a Rocket Ship is gonna take me away Slow down and pick me up and take me away Yeah, a Rocket Ship will take me away And bring me back on a sweeter, better day... A Rocket Ship's not hard to find Check out the space stations in your mind Grab your lady and all your friends Take a ride to where the big dream ends And you're gone... Coooool..... Rocket Ship will take me away A Rocket Ship's gonna take me away One Rocket Ship gonna take me away... ...Bring me back on a kinder, sweeter day... Yeah, yeah yeah! Rocket Ship is an old refrain From the Golden Fleece To the Golden Main You're a dragon of love with a flaming tail And the unlucky hero locked up in a jail Keep believin'.... 'Cos a Rocket Ship is gonna take you away Your Rocket Ship's gonna break down the walls And take you away Rocket Ship is gonna take you away... ...and bring you back on a better, more splendid day... Rocket Ship, you're a Ship of gold You ain't been made so you can't be sold And everybody can fly today Don't you worry 'bout how You'll find the way... Rocket Ship's gonna take you away A Rocket Ship's gonna take me away Rocket Ship's gonna take us away And bring us back on a better, better day... Don't be too far away Don't be too far away Lord Don't be too far Don't be too far Don't be Don't be too far away Don't be too far away

I'm gonna reach out until I touch you I don't care how far away I'm gonna put down my defences And live another day Someday I'm gonna find you You already may be here If I had the eyes to see I know you would appear You turn in a spiral of everlasting love And it comes from inside Not from up above You turn in a spiral of everlasting love And it comes from inside Not from up above Not from up above There's no time like the present It's the only place you are And I don't have to look that hard You can't be that far You may be real close at hand You may hear this song As soon as your heart opens It won't be long Yeah, you turn in a spiral of everlasting love And it comes from inside Not from up above You turn in a spiral of everlasting love And it comes from inside Not from up above Not from up above Can't you feel it coming Oh it sure feels nice And I would give you everything If that were the price Now won't you give me something? A little piece of you And I will give you back myself Yeah that's what I will do You, you turn spirals of everlasting love And it comes from inside Not from up above You turn in spirals of everlasting love And it comes from inside Not from up above Not from up above Not from up above

Fade Away 03:37
It's a hard hard highway I don't know where it ends Its a struggle to stay straight Every time the highway bends And I'm in the open country With no maps, no place to stay I've tried so hard to get there Don't let me fade away Don't let me fade away and disappear from sight These hands they pull at me I have no strength to fight By myself I'm nothing with nothing more to say Don't let me disappear Don't let me fade away I have lived in darkness It's much too crowded there The light becomes invisible They suffer everywhere Yes I've been lost before Please hear me when I pray If you truly do surround me Don't let me fade away Chorus Every time I've tried To go my way alone I don't get very far before I can't find my way home Then all I do is suffer And then I curse the day Don't let me disappear Don't let me fade away Don't let me disappear and vanish from your sight These hands pull at me, I have no will to fight By myself I'm nothing, with nothing more to say Don't let me disappear, don't let me fade away

In some enchanted forest I know that's where you are Locked up in a tower But I have got to see you soon Lots of blocks and barricades There's danger on all sides Ah but it don't make no difference I've got to see your eyes And I'll walk through all that darkness With a single burning light And I'll get to you this evening And make everything all right Cause every fairy tale Must have a princess And every fairy tale Must have a queen They can lock you up for trying If you don't look for here She won't know where you are I've walked the length of Egypt I've lived beneath the sea You're a goddess of redemption You're the living flame in me Sometimes there is that distance And I don't know where you are Then you'll show up in some woman's eyes And take me in your arms You know I'm going to miss you You keep dancing out of sight I may miss you in the daytime But you'll come to me tonight Cause every fairy tale must have a princess And every fairy tale must have a queen They can lock you up for trying If you don't look for her she won't know where you are My life has been about you You hide between the leaves You disappear around the corner And you surface in my dream I can hear you in the raindrops I can touch you when I can You are everywhere around me You're the reason I'm a man I've been looking for you lately So I know that you're around Another link in God's creation In this moment when you're found Cause every fairy tale must have a princess And every fairy tale must have a queen They can lock you up for trying If you don't look for her she won't know where you are If you don't look for her she won't know where you are

Some Lovers 05:00
Some Lovers Don't come early Some lovers never arrive at all Some love just keeps shining Our love, most of all Some lovers they get their rainbow Some lovers, they'll get none at all Some love just gets brighter Some love just gets brighter Some love just gets brighter Our love most of all Our love most of all Love never wanted to win Never thought about losing If love was a choice of a lesser evil Love isn't choosing Love never worried a day For one or nothing Down to the last shell game in life 'cos love isn't bluffing No, no no No no no Love is all that ever mattered Trust in love when everything's going wrong Some love just gets stronger Our love most of all Love is love, there is no other When everything is gone you have love alone Some love lasts forever Some love lasts forever Some love lasts forever Our love most of all Our love most of all Love never wanted to win Never thought about losing If there's a choice of a lesser evil Love isn't choosing Love never worried a day For no one or nothing Down to the last shell game in life 'cos love isn't bluffing No, no no No no no Some Lovers Don't come early Some lovers never arrive at all Some love just keeps shining Some love just keeps shining Some love just keeps shining Our love most of all Our love most of all

I'm in the middle of a rain forest Rain falling down on me I'm in the middle of a rain forest And it's too dark to see Dark as night And warm as blood Snakes are talking bout the brotherhood I hear voices On the wind They stir the leaves of where I've been I'm in the middle of nowhere Somewhere is all around I'm in the middle of nowhere That I'm likely to be found Send them south And send them west Play your cards close to your chest Dead man famous Made him dead Sleeps like a baby in his hide-a-bed I'm like an echo in a canyon Hear me fade away Gone like an echo in a canyon Gone like yesterday They seen him here They seen him there But they can't find him anywhere Soft as light Through falling snow The dream police never saw him go Fame and fortune went missing They had the wrong address The crime was love in private With nothing to confess Take it light Or let it go What did it mean? well I don't know The dancing wind And the smiling moon Say so long I'll see you soon I'm in the middle of a rain forest Rain falling down on me I'm in the middle of a rain forest And it's too dark to see Dark as night And warm as blood Snakes are talking bout the brotherhood I hear voices On the wind They stir the leaves of where I've been

She was another American mother Who lost her son in the war Death is hard when they go so young When they die for nothing it hurts even more The greatest love is the love of a mother Out of her substance the body is formed Out of her dreams the soul goes walking Sometimes the dream dies hard God bless you Cindy Sheehan For walking this road you are on Many more sons may live a little longer Even though your son is gone The president lied to his people He ducked when his time came to fight He's a man without honor or any regret And justice will gather him yet You may think god isn't watching But we're living proof God is real Yes sometimes God wakes up in people That's something you see and you feel God knows our country is troubled God sees our leaders are blind God is speaking through the love of a mother Open your heart and your mind God bless you Cindy Sheehan For walking this road you are on Many more sons may live a little longer Even though Casey is gone The president lied to his people He ran when his time came to fight He's a man without honor or any regret And justice will gather him yet I don't always know what the truth is But a lie isn't that hard to see Whatever is living in this womans heart I hope it will wake up in me The rich and the powerful tremble When truth appears at their door One simple woman in a state of conviction And look I see ten million more Look I see ten million more God bless you Cindy Sheehan For walking this road you are on Many more sons may live a little longer Even though your son is gone The president lied to his people He hid when his time came to fight He's a man without honor or any regret And justice will gather him yet

There was a foreign writer who wrote about his land The government objected and cut off both his hands She dreamed she was a dancer who never wore a veil They took her somewhere private but we never heard that tale The tiny whores and soldiers, you've heard it all before The virus killed their parents along with genocide and war Millions without medicine, my god that sure is cold The bankers took the diamonds, the women and the gold And we could all be free And we could all be free You can buy a boy or girl as young as you might wish In many cities of the world, they'll serve them on a dish And you can have some sex with them and you can beat them too And you can even kill them, you know some people do In London there's a mile square that regulates the wealth And a black-hearted nobility they think of nothing else They stir up every conflict then they blame it all on you While pocketing from every side, yes it happens to be true And we could all be free And we could all be free The priests and politicians all got Jesus on the phone There' so many more like Jesus that get to die alone Love is the greatest power like the truth it makes you free But Love and truth and freedom they are very hard to see I've been listening to our leaders but some things don't seem that clear Like how all the good that's coming, why it never shows up here And all the good we say we'e done that we did not achieve When we packed up all our garbage and shipped it overseas And we could all be free And we could all be free I suspect that somethings coming cause it cant go on this way There must be some accounting at the ending of the day Were all judged within our conscience by the lies that we embrace Then we look into the mirror but don't recognize the face Yes where there' life there's hope but your'e running out of time Now what was that guy saying, don't you pay that fool no mind How does it feel to be so right and find out you're so wrong? Well you'd better think about it, cause soon you may be gone And we could all be free And we could all be free

Mirrors and mirrors and time, like a ballerina dancing At the bottom of a lake The moon catches all of the colors of her movement and Scatters them into space... Mirrors and mirrors and dreams that dazzle like the dew Upon the dust Like so many tiny stars they wink in and out of life History will not remember us... Mirrors and mirrors and mirrors Mirrors and mirrors and mirrors And nothing is getting clearer This world is all smoke and mirrors Mirrors and mirrors, some barbershop vision Of something disappearing from the corner of your eye Whistling like ten thousand horsemen thundering Out of the mountains and down to the sea Where they turn into laughter Like the wild surf pounding Out beyond the borders of belief... Mirrors and mirrors and mirrors Mirrors and mirrors and mirrors And nothing is getting clearer This world is all smoke and mirrors Mirrors and mirrors and pictures and photographs That form their legend in the veil Where nothing is forever except your desire That keeps you in this mirror of fire... Mirrors and mirrors and mirrors Mirrors and mirrors and mirrors And nothing is getting clearer This world is all smoke and mirrors

They don't know where they're going They don't know what it means You don't see false flags waving In your iridescent dreams The world goes out of focus The mind turns upside down The shaman shakes his rattle Everywhere is holy ground The lotus just keeps rising Far above the murky lake And blooms into a Buddha With every breath you take No they don't know where they're going They don't know what it means Cause their minds are all on fire Burning in some young girls jeans The seed it hangs suspended The trembling heart it seems to give birth to cloudy mountains In your iridescent dreams Fire on the mountain Fire in the lake Fire burning in your mind With every breath you take The whole world is on fire With the force of burning need As the object of desire turns In iridescent dreams They don't know where they're going They don't know what it means All that wasted glory Keeps leaking through the seams It all comes out of emptiness And you're riding alongside Of the space through which you are passing The horse on which you ride The sound out of the silence And the echo that won't die The gleaming comprehension That is shining in her eye You can see the big wheel turning You can see the prayers ascend You can see the angels flying In a spiral round the bend You can hear the war planes thunder You can hear the people scream I'm surprised that you don't wonder In your iridescent dreams Fire on the mountain Fire in the lake Fire burning in your mind With every breath you take The whole world is on fire With the force of burning need As the object of desire turns In iridescent dreams The Pale Rider is mounted On a nightmare in the sky Cassiopeia is dancing Why don't you come outside
