No Speak No Slave Lyrics

Rooster crows at the break of dawn
A mother dies without her only son
A doctor laughs in the face of disease
I never once heard a preacher say please

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Policemen who break the laws
Politicians rise and fall
A baby crying for its mothers milk
A daddy's secret hidden guilt

And you, you want to be heard
But none of us understand a word
And you, you want to be free
Then don't speak like a slave to me.

Go Tell The Congregation Lyrics

Here I am
There I was
Here I go
Just follow me

If it was
Then it can
And we know
How it will be

When it was
Just because
Yes you know
It's not a dream

It's just all
C'mon y'all
I'll tell you
What I mean

When you want to lose your blues
Go tell the congregation
When there's nothing left that you can do
Go tell the congregation
When you want to tell the truth
Go tell the congregation
When the devil's got a hold of you
Go tell the congregation

Don't look back
Stay on track
It's a fact
A lesson to me

Keep in stride
With your pride
Now you know
How strong you can be

There's no time
Draw a line
Yes I know
That you can know me

Look alive
No surprise
Everybody wants to be free

"Everything is everything"

Paint An 8 Lyrics

Seven less sorrows, seven more mistakes
Seven things to borrow, seven more to take
Seven times I've fallen, seven times I won
Six times I've wondered, where was one more

Why did I sleep so late
Lost my mind for seven days straight
If I go for seven more
Paint an eight on my door

Seven windows and seven doors
Seven sisters and seven boys
Seven poems, seven lines
Same old story same old crime
Why did I sleep so late
Lost my mind for seven days straight
If I go for seven more
Paint an eight on my door

Why did I sleep so late
Lost my mind for seven days straight
If I go for seven more
Paint an eight on my door

Cosmic Friend Lyrics

When the wind whispers to me
From somewhere behind the trees
And it tells me crazy things
Like my head is full of bees
And at night they hum for me.

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
Its not everlasting
Its bound to turn around
Need a little sweetness
A little reason for your rhyme
I got something for you
A little sugar for your mind
Hear the bells ringing
Send it down the line
Thank you for the sharing (hey no problem, man)
I'll get you back next time (cool)

Chorus:
My friend, the cosmos is calling
Sayin' we all should be shining

Don't you be a stranger
We like you hanging around
Be thankful of the laughter
Praise for the sound
When you're feeling lonely
You know just what to do
Put on track eleven
Get on with the groove

Chorus

Now we've reached the ending
I'm sad this song is gone
We can start at the beginning
And we can all sing along

Down and dirty nappy
Tired sad nasty
Its not everlasting
Its bound to turn around

Chorus

Ballad In Urgency Lyrics

Here with me
And this price you pay
Just a wishful dream could be blown away
Ask yourself for better or worse
Because what's the use if it's just good luck

A black cat has crossed my path
Tell me what's good luck about that

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Excuse me please
For my definition
But deeper still are my convictions
Urgently I wait to hear an answer
While I misconduct
A sad lost anthem
An anthem like you have never heard
Have you heard something so absurd

Hate and greed
Swollen and sweet
Let's start this misery
If that's where you wanna be
Fear and love
From down or from up above
Come to me
Come to me
I beg you please
Come set me free

Wiser Time Lyrics

No time left now for shame
Horizon behind me, no more pain
Windswept stars blink and smile
Another song, another mile

You read the line every time
Ask me about crime in my mind
Ask me why another road song
Funny but I bet you never left home

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

Fourteen seconds till' sunrise
Tired but wiser for the time
Lightning 30 miles away
Three thousand more in two days

On a good day, it's not every day
We can part the sea
And on a bad day, it's not every day
Glory beyond our reach

My Morning Song Lyrics

Dizzy found me last night
Saw some kind of new light
I woke up in a whirlwind
Just you watch my head spin

The spectacle that made you cry
It's a thrill a minute plane ride
It's over time at ring side, no lie

March me down to the seven seas
Bury me with a ruby ring
Kiss me baby on an Easter Sunday day
Make my haze blow away

I hide I seek I go and I find
Truth in a fable faith in a rhyme
So why you want to bad talk me
Are you surprised by what we see?

Like the tables and the tides turn
On my bed the emperor worm
Is that enough for me, could be

If music got to free your mind
Just let it go cause you never know, you never know
If your rhythm ever falls out of time
You can bring it to me and I will make it alright

And if your soul is let go
Oh you never know, no you never know
And if your heart is beating free
For the very first time it'll be alright

By Your Side Lyrics

When your lost
I am found
When you slip
I hold my ground
When I fall
Please take a bow
And when you're up
Just remember I am down

People looking for
Fortune and fame
They don't know
That it's all the same
It's like any other game
You know there's a loser
But it's alright

When you feel your heart is breaking
When all your friends are faking
When its giving and no taking
I will be by your side

I've been over the hill and back
Survived every kind of attack
It's been a few years at that
As a matter of fact

Good luck is just good luck
You don't go hungry if you got pot luck
I've been down
But never on my knees
I see the forest for the trees

Horsehead Lyrics

Horsehead got you bug eyed
Horsehead left the day for night
Horsehead ain't no dragonfly
Horsehead help you live a lie

You cannot see the hole in front of you
And I will see you down if you want me to

You are blessed with just one life
All you are is what's inside
If you take, then step aside
Jesus gave until he died

Horsehead feel your soul fall
Horsehead gonna take a dive
Horsehead ain't no good at all
Horsehead said you're gonna die

Nonfiction Lyrics

I don't know my telephone number
But you kiss good and I'd like to
See you tomorrow
And I don't beg, I pay, I don't barter
And if we had a child I'd like a son,
Not a daughter
'Cause she'd be just like you
You know that would not do

I'm no builder, I'm no gardener
I sing some songs, have a friend
Who's a photographer
There ain't no other language
I know how to speak
Some like their water shallow
And I like mine deep
Tied to the bottom
With a noose around my feet

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

I like to dress up like the jury
To eat like a king, to poke fun at clergy
To talk like dirt
To love you like tar
But never fall in too fast
With my north star
While you pull your hair out
I buy the drinks at the bar

The clouds conspire
Above my head
I overheard them
Say I wish he was dead
Today the sunset
Burned my eyes
And in the next room I hear someone cry

Twice As Hard Lyrics

Clean as a whistle
Smellin' like a rose
She got no dirty little fingers
Bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

Twice as Hard
As it was the first time
I said goodbye

And no one ever wanna' know
Love ain't funny
A crime in the wink of an eye

Your sister always singing
She play the step child
A broken little memory
Her heart was never kind
Tell me I'm blind

Yeah, bloodshot eyes are gone
Tell me I'm wrong

(Repeat Chorus 5 times)

Remedy Lyrics

Baby, baby why can't you sit still?
Who killed that bird out on you window sill?
Are you the reason that he broke his back?
Did I see you laugh about that?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it glide?

Can I have some remedy?

Remedy for me please.
Cause if I had some remedy
I'd take enough to please me.

Baby, baby why did you dye your hair?
Why you always keeping with your mother's dare?
Baby why's who's who, who know you too?
Did the other children scold on you?
If I come on like a dream?
Would you let me show you what I mean?
If you let me come on inside?
Will you let it slide

Don't Let Me Down Lyrics

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down

Nobody ever loved me like she does
Oo, she does, yeh, she does
And if somebody loved me like she do me
Oo, she do me, yes, she does

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down

I'm in love for the first time
Don't you know it's gonna last
It's a love that lasts forever
It's a love that had no past

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down

And from the first time that she really done me
Oo, she done me, she done me good
I guess nobody ever really done me
Oo, she done me, she done me good

Don't let me down, don't let me down
Don't let me down, don't let me down
