No One Listens (From the album 'Looking For The Rising Sun')

No one listens no one cares
No one out there to answer my prayers
Anyway every day is all the same

All the false hope that you gave
All the dreams that pass and fade away
And every day is all the same

Truth and Justice will make me appeal
Get the workers making more steel
And cars will fly to mars every day

I don't want to hurt you
I don't want to start
It's only your division 
That's keeping us apart

Hidden cameras for honey trapped
Film the filmers to keep them all back
And every day will always stay all the same

I'm just going about my life
I'm not thinking of black or of white
I'm not the man with a plan who's come to town

When he's calling to blow me away
As I'm falling hear me say
I have loved and I have lost and I have won

Above the village in the sky
Drones will focus a beady eye
And they watch every one go to and fro

I don't want to hurt you
I don't want to start
It's only your division 
That's keeping us apart

Fetch the water from the well
Come on Jesus cast your spell
Let it rain, pour your rain down on me

Sands Of Time

The forces of nature drive
They keep on killing to stay alive
God smiles at the rising tide
Looks up at the sky

Lucky sevens and roulette
Find a table and place your bet
About as high as you can get
If you want to try

And you're playing, playing cool, but you've played it like a fool   

I'm tired of sleeping I'm tired of the war
I don't want to play your game anymore

The storm chasers are gathered round
They've grown crazy in this old town
They fall silent when lights go down
The fever is high

Long gone are the Broadway shows
Buried deep under this rainbow
And where it lies you’ll never know
And don't ask why

And you're playing, playing cool, but you've played it like a fool   
 
I'm tired of sleeping I'm tired of the war
I don't want to play this game anymore
I'm dizzy and sick now with the layers of lies
Lost in the darkness deep in your eyes

Finding out where you’ve been
Finding out what this means

The sands of time are blowing wild and fast
High over Eden’s broken glass
Mother Nature brought down at last
Her tears all run dry
 

I Believe (From the album Songs From Real Life)

I believe in clarity
It's clear and true
Is leaving you

I believe in sanity
It's made to last
Is made of glass

Someday without warning
You're on the road alone
Someone turned the lights out and
You're a million miles from home

I believe in reality
It's safe as home
Is cold as stone

Someday without warning
You're on the road alone
Someone turned the lights out and
You're a million miles from home

Every face a stranger
And you don't know who to ask
And if you stop and stumble
Then they keep on running past

 
Soldier (From the album Soldier)

Don’t know what it was that I was thinking at the time
Don’t know what it was that made me join the line
When a body in a box seems like nothing new
With the flag all red white and blue

And every one of us was young and naive 
I was looking for something to believe
But they’ve taken my religion and turned it upside down
And they burned all the houses to the ground

And when it came on deep in the night
I was thrown down frozen with fear
And I prayed dear god don’t let this take too long
But it feels like forever to be gone

Dear Jesus Christ I don’t know who’s fault it is
don’t know the history or all the politics
Can you find me something that will make amends
For the war has taken all my friends

And when the orders came from all those miles away
Echoed down the corridors of power like a play
And  I don’t know how they’d feel if they were sitting here
When you know that the end is getting near

Now chaos reigns here and helicopters glide
The only thing I’m thinking of is wheres a place to hide
And I don’t want no ribbon tied around no tree
Cause it wont bring the feeling back to me

And I don’t know now what I’m doing here
In this hell on earth of every darkest fear
But it doesn’t really matter cause this is where I am
Stuck inside the madness of the man
Endlessly (From the album Troubled Road)

Don’t think too hard
I’ve seen all your cards
I’m yours endlessly

Don’t try to leave
I’ve stolen all your keys
I’m yours endlessly

I could talk to Jesus 
He’ll know what to do
I could pour my heart out
Into your eyes of blue
And don’t you worry
If you don’t notice me
I’m yours endlessly

Just drink this down
You will come around
I’m yours endlessly

Don’t try to run
I’ve loaded this old gun
I’m yours endlessly

I could talk to Jesus 
He’ll know what to do
I could pour my heart out
Into your eyes of blue
And don’t you worry
If you don’t notice me
I’m yours endlessly

So let me in
Our love can begin
I’m yours endlessly
World On Fire (From the album World On Fire)

Some times I find my mind is caught I think a thought of you
I hope that life was long enough to see your dreams come true
I know you’ll go higher
I bet you set the world on fire

You climb inside enjoy the ride and you never need to drive
I guess you wont be needing me to Watch the world go by 
I know you’ll go higher
I bet you set the world on fire

Another road another bend the summer sun has gone
The smile you gave begins to fade your shadows getting long
All those days I loved you
I dreamed I’d set the world on fire
