keep away the tears, and bury your fears
Your train , your train my friend

and it's hard to rise , sometimes my friend
your sweat left in the path, is strength to another step
sometimes , sometimes my friend
When the voice of wind , the wind my friend
caress you as a child , the wind my friend
you'll taste the freedom smell, as if caught by a spell
the wind, the wind my friend

You Feed My Soul

I was losing my mind
Without your sweetness around
Only sorrow and doubts
Since your cruel “goodbye”

Every hour felt wrong
Since your lips say so long
I just want you on my way
And I'm comin' back to say

THAT YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
BABE YOU FEED MY SOUL

I was walking outside
My eyes darker than night
You must open that door
Cause I can't wait no more

CAUSE YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
BABE YOU FEED MY SOUL

YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
BABE, YOU FEED MY SOUL

Now I see that I was wrong
Oh, I've missed you for so long
These Tears tell you no lies
Cause you turn me into a child
Babe you feed my soul

You're my hunger, my thirst
Cause you' re always the first

YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
YOU FEED MY SOUL
BABE YOU FEED MY SOUL

My Eyes Won't See No More

I saw the darkness coming
Hiding the soldiers blood
And I asked to myself
was I dead, too

If I was inside
The shell of an another man
While in the air
The night full
of a bitter smell

I saw stones raining
And people
pickin' up their past
Quickly day in and night
To say their prayer, their last

I saw dead men
in the evening
beggin' for a kiss they'll never have
I saw a bride running
With no ring n' no dress

MY EYES WON'T SEE NO MORE
NO EVIL NO WAR
NO EVIL NO WAR

I saw children jumpin'
under the white light of a mine
Their mothers sift the sadness
To split from the flesh the spines

I saw shiny bombs flying
As fat clouds
came up from hell
And I scream-up
at God in the sky
n' Keep on watching in vain

MY EYES WON'T SEE NO MORE
NO EVIL NO WAR
NO EVIL NO WAR

I saw dismembered men
Hawks with blooded wings
I saw men
killing the peace
In the name of
their Gods speech

MY EYES WON'T SEE NO MORE
NO EVIL NO WAR
NO EVIL NO WAR

In the Cage of Your Love

Love me or leave me babe
Tell me what you wanna do
Treat me bad or treat me right
Show me what I am to you

See you smilin', see you cryin'
Taste honey and bitterness with me
Open the door , give me the key
It's not enough what I see

Kiss me , hit me babe
You know what I need
I'm here, I'm ready
I'm tired of licking my wounds

Take them, they're my eyes
Take them, they're my hands
You still have my heart
what can you still take ?

LOOK AT ME, RIGHT NOW BABE
IN THE CAGE OF
YOUR LOVE

Hey babe what you gonna do
I've got no time to wait for you
ain't got no blood to pour
my heart doesn't beat anymore

Hold me here or let me run
tell me the truth at last
I no longer wanna live with lies
I paid too much before knowing the price

SO LOOK AT ME, RIGHT NOW BABE
IN THE CAGE OF

YOUR LOVE

Mother

I feel the Heart still needs me
my eyes on the old swing
they tell me
there's still a time to be a child

I feel the air around me
sends a chill through
my own heart still beats strong
my feet can't make a step

Let's sleep a little longer
Let me feel your breath
I can't go
I must stay
I have to finish
a dream left undone

Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
I ain't ready

Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
I ain't ready

Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now

Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
Mother don't leave me now
You still need me

Black Woman

I don't want no jet-black woman,
O she's too mean, Lawd, Lawd, she's too mean,
I don't want no jet-black woman,
O she's too mean, Lawd, Lawd, she's too mean.

I don't want no sugar in my coffee,
It makes me, Lawd, Lawd, it makes me mean.
I don't want no sugar in my coffee,
It makes me, Lawd, Lawd, it makes me mean.

I got a bulldog he weighs five hundred,
In my backyard, Lawd, Lawd, in my backyard.
I got a bulldog he weighs five hundred,
In my backyard, Lawd, Lawd, in my backyard.

When he barks, he roar like thunder.
Up in the clouds, Lawd, up in the clouds.
When he barks, he roar like thunder.
Up in the clouds, Lawd, up in the clouds.

When you meet my long-haired woman,
Just bow your head, Lawd, just bow your head.
When you meet my long-haired woman,
Just bow your head, Lawd, just bow your head.

I don't want no bald-headed woman,
O she's too mean, Lawd, Lawd, she's too mean.
I don't want no bald-headed woman,
O she's too mean, Lawd, Lawd, she's too mean.

All the Love

Rumble cat on rainy days
put your trust in what i say
Rumble cat my friend, so let's pretend

Hunting in the dusk
Stray cats just like us
Challenging the strong ones an crawling in the dust
Rumble cat my friend, so let's pretend

Torned blue jean
and sunken cheek
in the hour where noone meet
neither you or me Rumble cat my friend

Rough God Goes Riding

Oh the mud splattered victims
Have to pay out all along the ancient highway
Torn between half truth and victimisation
Fighting back with counter attacks

It's when that rough god goes riding
When the rough god goes gliding
And then rough god goes riding
Riding on in

I was flabbergasted by the headlines
People in glasshouses throwing stones
Gaping wounds that will never heal
Now they're moaning like a dog in a manger

It's when that rough god goes riding
And then the rough god goes gliding
There'll be nobody hiding
When that rough god comes riding on in

And it's a matter of survival
When you're born with your back against the wall
Won't somebody hand me a bible
Won't you give me that number to call

When that rough god goed riding
And then that rough god goes gliding
They'll be nobody hiding
When that rough god goes riding on in
Riding on in

When that rough god goed riding
When that rough god goes gliding
There'll be nobody hiding
When that rough god goes riding on in
Riding on in

There'll be no more heroes
They'll be reduced to zero
When that rough god goes riding
Riding on in
Riding on in
Riding on in
Riding on in

Crumbled Stones

You sell hopes
Disposable hopes
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

You promise freedom
But you unroll barbed wire
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

You set forest fires
To show us your light
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

CRUMBLED STONES
CRUMBLED STONES
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

Feed the people
with baked lies
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

You Preach poverty
sleepin' in greenback bed
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

Say you're by our side
but walk on our head
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

CRUMBLED STONES
CRUMBLED STONES
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

You start new wars
and we're your medals
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

Your knotted tie
tightens around our neck
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

You have no glory
In your kingdom
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

CRUMBLED STONES
CRUMBLED STONES
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

CRUMBLED STONES
CRUMBLED STONES
Crumbled stones are the diamonds you give

Give Peace a Chance

You hold your breath and count to ten, just do like in the past
cos there's a means to an end and there's nothin here at hand

Down in the park, we playin' cards
and if night comes too soon
just wait for me and give me another clue to find you

Only birch stand all around, and you play with a stick
your scent is different now and I fear what this mean

Down in the park, we playin' cards
and if night comes too soon
another hint of you, another clue
