Track Name: Rocketship
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
Track Name: Everlasting Love
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
Track Name: Fade Away
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

Dont 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
Dont 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
Track Name: Every Fairy Tale
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 fairytale
Must have a princess
And every fairytale
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 womans 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 fairytale must have a princess
And every fairytale 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 fairytale 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
Track Name: Some Lovers
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
Track Name: Gone Baby, Gone
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 hideabed

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 smilin 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
Track Name: God Bless You Cindy Sheehan
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
Track Name: And we could All be Free
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, youve 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, theyll 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 theres 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
Theres 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

Ive been listening to our leaders but some things dont seem that clear
Like how all the good thats coming, why it never shows up here
And all the good we say weve 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 dont recognize the face

Yes where theres life theres hope but youre running out of time
Now what was that guy saying, dont you pay that fool no mind
How does it feel to be so right and find out youre 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
Track Name: Smoke and Mirrors
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
Track Name: Iridescent Dreams
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 irridescent 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 irridescent dreams

The Pale Rider is mounted
On a nightmare in the sky
Cassiopeia is dancing
Why don't you come outside
