Dear God (sincerely M.O.F.)

Dear god, I'm trying hard to reach you
Dear god, I see your face in all I do
Sometimes it's so hard to believe in
Good god I know you have your reasons

Dear god I see you move the mountains
Dear god I see you moving trees
Sometimes it's nothing to believe in
Sometimes it's everything I see

Well I've been thinking about,
And I've been breaking it down without an answer
I know I'm thinking aloud but if your loves
Still around why do we suffer?
Why do we suffer?

Dear god, I wish that I could touch you
How strange sometimes I feel I almost do
And then I'm back behind the glass again
Oh god what keeps you out it keeps me in

Well I've been thinking about,
And I've been breaking down without an answer
I know I'm thinking aloud but if your loves
Still around why do we suffer?
Why do we suffer?

Say Please


Everyone grows old on the gold coast
it takes a lot of hope to grieve
Everyone gets dark and the worst part
Is the way those thoughts can please you
Personality like a split screen
See yourself down on your knees


Hold out your hand, darling
Say please

Everyone gives up down on hard luck
On hope aint enough it seems
Everyone gets lost in their own fog
Have to wonder on with lantern dreams Say please, please
Just say something
Speak up, please
If its what youre looking for

Hold out your hand, darling Say please

Whole Lotta Losin'


Well I've got a lot, lord, I've got a lot of losing,
friends and heroes packing up and moving,
One of these days I'll be left with nothing but memories and old time

And I better get accustomed, cause I've got a lot, lord, I got a lot of losing by and by.

We never got paid but we had a lot of laughs,
Running like thieves through the streets of Chicago Look at me I'm leaning out apartment windows singing "I still miss someone"

And I better get accustomed, cause I've got a lot, lord, I got a lot of losing by and by.

Picking up speed, picking up the pieces, Losing leaves in every season, The winter ends right at my feet with flowers peeping up through a crack in the concrete

And I better get accustomed, cause I've got a lot, lord, I got a lot of losing by and by.

Temazcal


putting on my power, righteous as a rose
dynamite the mountain, now i'm walking up the road
the love we made at gunpoint wasn't love at all
the dancing in the valley, the moons is the mirrored ball
blew open my mind, now it's an empty room
swinging in the hammock, dogs are walking across the roof
i watch you braid your hair, you're from another time
when the earth wasn't so angry
and god was on our side

searching west and east
and all points in-between
underneath the lines of thought
you're there and then you're not

the mayans stole tomorrow, hid it underground
we come with heavy magnets but it still hasn't been found
i'm sweating out my secrets in the temazcal
they're screaming in the calle that there are stars about to fall

looking through the trees
cities and the seas
things we've seen
ovnis on the lawn
they're there and then they're gone
there and then they're gone

searching west and east
all points in between
and underneath the hand of god
you're there and then you're not

The Right Place


do you like where you're living?
do you like what you do?
do you like what you're seeing...
when you're lookin at you?
do you like what you're saying...
when you open your face?
do you got the right feeling?
are you in the right place?

stealin a tusk from an elephant must make one feel creepy inside.
and although you'll boast around the fire at night...
that ghost will kick up a fight.
"be gone! be gone!" you scream...
you're just some elephant dream...
I needed you like you needed me...
people, they need piano keys.

if you like where you're living...
if you like what you do...
if you like what you're seeing...
when you're lookin at you...
if you like what you're saying...
when you open your face...
then you got the right feeling.
you're in the right place.

"is this right? is this right?"
c'mon god answer tonite!
is there some fee that you'll charge me...
for doin what you thought I might?
once you've thought long and hard about it...

tell me if heads will roll.
once you've thought long and hard about it...
tell me cuz i need to know...

cause I like where I'm livin...
and I like what I do...
and I like what I'm seein...
when i'm lookin at you...
I still like what I'm saying...
when i open my face.
I think I got the right feeling.
I think I'm in the right place.
I think I got the right feeling.
I think I'm in the right place.

Baby Boomer


We've got to stand a little closer to what it is we're leaning on,
Who was it that first said it? Could it be he could be wrong about the pilgrims and the natives having dinner on the lawn?

I think if I was ever king I'd buy a censorship where the only books upon the shelves were the ones that I had read. Open 'em up at borders, send my photo down the spine to tell the story of the living without forgetting those who died.

And I would die a happy man 'cause I did the best that I could do to find a better way of leavin' should we leave that up to you.

Who was it that first said it? Yea, the one who said it best: you've got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones who are still left!

We've got to stand a little closer to the lessons that we've learned, is it just a premonition, could we really get ourselves both burnt?

I've been sent here on a mission to find what we agreed upon- we don't agree about September, can we agree on Vietnam?

I think if I was ever a publisher, I'd buy a pirate ship where the mission at each position is to shoot and to click- clean the photos up a little, censor the ship out of it so I would put it up at borders, turn a profit on my trip. Charge the public for the overhead of 1492, and if they need a better reason tell 'em we got living proof.

And I would die a happy man 'cause I did the best that I could do to find a better way of leavin' should we leave that up to you.

Who was it that first said it, yea, that's what I'm trying to say, you've got to L-O-V-E your neighbors, at least the ones who live today.

Man Named Truth


Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
I'll tell you right now that it ain't no use
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth

Pain was a-huntin' me down but I gave him the slip
I left the city through the tunnel and i headed for the sticks
With oregano oil and a morphine drip
Pain was hunting me down but I gave him the slip

then I fell in love with identical twins
They lived 34 summers between the two of them
I gave one my ego, I gave one my id
Yeah, I gotta get back to my pretty little twins

Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
I'll tell you right now that it ain't no use
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth

I was lost for a year in those almond trees
The sun was rising in south and setting in the east
I was half-awake, I was half-asleep
I thought I'd never get out of those almond trees

So don't think too slow in the syrupy sun
You get buried alive when you're caught up in the cold (?)
Tapping your time on a congo drum
Don't think too slow in the syrupy sun

I met a black-skinned man with a ice cream grin
and a blond afghan with that heroin
we moved to the mountains where the highway ends
and I got myself that ice cream grin

So don't search too long for that Aztec gold
Like gold Cortez, gonna lose your soul
turn an honest man into Diablo
Don't trade your soul for no Aztec gold

Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
Never buy nothin' from a man named truth
Look in my eyes and you see the proof
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth


Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth
Don't ever buy nothin' from a man named truth

Goodway


I learned the good way, goodway
I learned the good way, goodway
I learned the good way of saying goodbye
I learned the good way, goodway
I learned the good way, goodway
You taught me everything I know about taking other people for a ride
And I just wanted to take the time to thank you for that gift tonight
I learned the good way, goodway
I learned the good way, goodway
I learned the good way of saying goodbye
I learned the good way, goodway
I learned the good way, goodway
You taught me everything I know about taking other people for a ride
And I just wanted to take the time to thank you for that gift tonight

Ahead of the Curve


Another perfect day
they keep piling up.
I got happiness that I can maintain
some beginner's luck.

I had shoes to fill
walkin' barefoot now.
Can't tell north from south
but no split hairs gonna get me down.

I'm stayin' above the flat line
I'm ahead of the curve.
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
on a red eye flight to another world.

It isn't any trouble
if you wanna come with me.
I know it's out of the question, honey
but I sure could use the company
and a place to be.

Now the sky is pink
rooftop swimmin' pool.
I'm not carefree, no
I'm free to care
I just never do.

All the bags are checked
and the reasons why.
Yesterday lingers on
that's the peace you keep when you say goodbye.

You can get what you want now
knock it out of the park.
Bury it by the river
Easy, there's a search party but it's gettin' dark.

I won't hold you to nothin'
I wanna make that plane.
Probably end up a stranger, crazy
but I'm still hoping there's another way
and a place to stay.

What a scene has got you sentimental
when the night comes, when the knot comes loose.
All the things you've put up on the mantle
What a shame. What a shame.
It's old news.

I'm stayin' above the flat line
I'm ahead of the curve.
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
on an all night drive to another world.

You can get what you want now
knock it out of the park.
Probably end up a drifter, lonely
but I'm still hoping for a change of heart
and a place to start.

Slow Down Jo


slow down jo
anybody ever tell you that you move too fast?
anybody ever tell you how to make a good thing last?
cuz it aint like that....

first you gotta slow down jo
last night i was talking to some friends of mine
A.J.'s afraid you're gonna kill your time or lose your mind

if you don't slow down jo
anybody ever tell you if you lose the knack
anybody ever tell you that its true
you can get it back!
but not like that...

It aint by kicking down the walls & pissing off your friends
Every time the cards don't fall your way
It aint by poking out your eyes when you see something you don't like
Even your mama said she don't want to see you spent at 25
so come on jo stay alive....

Losin' Yo' Head


comin home alone at night i'm so scared!
turn on all the lights, check underneath the stairs.
open all the closets, make sure they're no monsters in there!
livin in a small house, it's fairly easy to check.
if i were livin in a mansion, i'd probably just sleep out on the deck.
heaving on the boulder, just trying to move it an inch...
i think i'm gettin close, i think i'm gettin bolder...
but then it all starts to slip...and i keep on makin the same old faces again.

partyin with strangers or stickin with close friends instead...
it don't matter what you're doin, as long as you're losin your head.
out ridin on the range, or layin with you here in bed...
it don't matter what i'm doin, as long as i'm losin my head.

way back when the smallest trip was the greatest quest.
now sometimes i get bored, even tho i know i'm blessed.
comin and goin like we do it's hard to keep friends i know firsthand...
i'm tired of doin nothin, feel like we should be making plans.
we need a little thrill i can see it in our faces-
yeah- turn off the tv set.
the feeling of adventure, i think we all remember it.

partyin with strangers or stickin with close friends instead...
it don't matter what i'm doin, as long as i'm losin my head.
out ridin on the range, or layin with you here in bed...
it don't matter what i'm doin, as long as i'm losin my head.

Magic Marker


Just because it's not accepted
Doesn't mean it ain't alright
Just another frozen kid who's
Tryin' to make it through tonight

Ordinary pens and notebooks
Ain't no ordinary life
All the freaked out measures
I took tryin' to make you sick of smilin'

Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
Look what's ordinary now
It's got a magic marker stain
On its face and it needs a shower

There's something sweet waiting in the center
Taste and see
There's something sweet waiting in the center
Don't nobody look at me
Don't nobody look at me


Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
Look at ordinary now
It's got a magic marker stain
On its face and it needs a shower

How many licks does it take to get
Taste and see
How many licks does it take to get
To the center where there's something sweet
To the center where there's something sweet

Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
Look what's ordinary now
Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
Look what's ordinary now
Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how
Look what's ordinary now
Ordinary don't mean nothin' no how

Look what's ordinary now
Look what's ordinary now
Look at ordinary now

Map of the World


There's a map of the world on the wall in your room
Green pins where you want to go
White pins where you've been, there isn't even ten
and your already feeling old

Pretty faces stare back from a magazine stack
That you read when you're feeling bored
Look through a telescope lens it doesn't make sense
You think you've been there before

Some far off feeling, some up close kind of ache
A wide screen reason to look the other way

There's a place by the lake that you go when its late
In the summer when the crowds are gone
You sit all alone with your thoughts getting stoned
Just waiting for some peace to come

Like the thing that you tried that you thought that you liked
For a minute then it all felt wrong
So you change it again all your clothes, all your friends
It's the same as it ever was

That far off feeling, that up close kind of ache
Some wide screen reason to look the other way

It's the road that you paved over indian graves
and you wonder why your dreams are crazed
So you cling to wife, your kids, your life
There's nothing that your gonna save

Put the razor to your face, hot water for a shave
Kill the shadow of yesterday
Clean shirt, clean pants, clean slate, second chance
You're going by another name

Some far off feeling, an up close kind of ache
That instant karma always comes to late

The Sandman, the Brakeman and Me


The Brakeman is letting off some steam
This has to be the slowest train that I have ever seen
And the Sandman's waiting to deliver me my dream
Guess I'll lay my head against my elbow and the window
Watch the wheels go, watch the wheels go

Roll on, roll on, old little train
Brakeman blow your whistle, throw your weight upon the chain
Make way, for whatever will be, will be
Between the Sandman, the Brakeman and me

And the Sandman's waiting to deliver me my dream
Deliver me my dream
Deliver me my dream today
Guess I'll lay my head against my elbow and the window
Let my wheels go, let my wheels go

And roll on, roll on, old little train
Brakeman blow your whistle, throw your weight upon the chain
Make way, whatever will be, will be
For the Sandman, the Brakeman and me
Roll on, roll on, old little train
Brakeman blow your whistle, throw your weight upon the chain
Make way, whatever will be, will be
For the Sandman, the Brakeman and me

His Master's Voice


Mohammed rolling dice
With Christ at twilight
And they hear their master's voice
They run to do their chores
At Master's calling

Their job tonight:
Rewrite the Bible
For a whole new generation
Of non-believers

The pastor screams out to the crowd
"There's evil that must be put down"
And it touches the soldier boy
He heeds his master's voice
His life is calling

Sweet soldier boy
The speaker's bleeding
He hears his master's voice
Do you hear your master's voice?
Calling... Like the lady siren's call

Sweet soldier, quiet,
Just staring at the ceiling
And he hears his master's voice
He hears the call to war;
The siren's singing

Out on the line
There's something strikes the side(?)
He sees his inner child
He hears his mother's voice
Softly calling...

Spirit soldier's mother, have us(?)
She holds up a paper cup
And the sound of life and love
Fills her ear(?)

You're only gonna hear what you want to hear
Do you hear your master's voice now?

Mohammed and Christ speak twice as nice
But the one that I like best
He sings inside my chest
I hear my master calling...

Calling out...
