Keep the Faith

When troubles got you down
and sorrow’s all around
if you think your love’s all been in vain
just cry to end the pain.

Please Keep the Faith, We Need it!

You look for a way out
of this sea of doubt.
It looks hard, I understand,
swimmin’ when you can’t see land.

Please Keep the Faith, We Need it!

You need to see the country
but something holds you back.
Travel near and far and wide
have no fear or nothing to hide

Please Keep the Faith, We Need it!

If you’re tired of the human race,
and you can’t find yourself in pace,
there’s too many games goin round
and the Man’s tryin to bring you down.

Please Keep the Faith, We Need it!


Revolutionary All American Boys

We’re just what you need
good solid wood
You’d a done it for us
if you only could.
We’re your power to make evil curl
together we’ll make and shape our new world.
We’re God’s children
so don’t forget
Paradise is just around the corner
and we’ll get there yet.
Then we’ll give ya all our love;
We’ll try our best.
For after all,
our love is what we want to give.

Chorus
We’re your crowd pleasers,
we’re your body heaters,
we’re your human crutch.
Oh, we like you very very much
but we’re just to look at
not to touch.

You know there always has to be
someone in this world like we.
sayin’ the words that need to be said.
someone to wish for in your lonely bed.

We’re your freedom, we’re your sons.
We shine a light for everyone.
We’re your happiness, we’re your joy.
Your Revolutionary All American Boys!


Feet on Earth, Head in Sky

Oh we’ll fly in on the spring breeze,
shouting dreams from the smile on our face.
On flying horses came the oak trees
showin unity to the human race.

Our words are too far from earth we’re told
to ever be any worth.
But we’ll tell you for the good of your souls;
live your dreams to find the truth.

Chorus
Feet on earth, head in sky,
heart throbs in between.
Finger tips on waves of thought
that no man’s ever seen.

So don’t let fear of pain emerge
and kill us before we speak.
For we are his messengers
to give strength to the weak.

We’ll carry our enchanted sticks
we’ll live in our enchanted land.
Enchanted by the touch of god
or can’t you understand?

Dream you’re on a schooner
in the waters of all time.
Or in a tee-pee on the plains
chantin all time magic rhymes.

Chorus


Fever In My Mind

Fever in my mind, I had a little bit.
Money in my pocket, just a little bit.
Gave the doctor what I had,
money only makes me sad.
I still got the fever in my mind.

Doctor told me that I had
a little fever in my head.
And he said it’d go away,
when he said it’d go away,
I listened to him to him but I knew
that it would stay because
the fever that I had was in
my mind – in my mind.

Doctor told me that I had a little bit
of fever in my head, just a little bit
But I knew what he would say
He would try to make me stay
If I had a fever in my mind.

Oh no, Oh no, Oh no
Oh no, In my mind.


The Big One’s Still Coming

We’re having an earthquake
we’re goin insane.
A California earthquake
has been shakin our brains.
We’re havin an earthquake
and some think it’s fun
But in an earthquake
there’s nowhere to run.

But the big one’s still comin,
yea, it’s on its way.

California earthquake
shakin our heads
yea, we’re havin an earthquake
on our waterbeds.
California earthquake
is breakin the ground
We’re havin an earthquake
what a crazy sound

But the big one’s still comin,
yea, it’s on its way.

We’re having an earthquake
we’re goin insane.
A California earthquake
has been shakin our brains.
We’re havin an earthquake
and some think it’s fun
But in an earthquake
there’s nowhere to run.

But the big one’s still comin,
yea, it’s on its way.


White-Headed Woman

White-headed woman, whited-headed woman.
Ain’t had a chance yet, ain’t had a chance yet.
White-headed woman, whited-headed woman.
Only got your pants wet, only got your pants wet.
You know I want you, you want me too I bet.
You know I want you, you want me too I bet.

White-headed woman, whited-headed woman.
Maybe when the time is right, maybe when the time is right.
White-headed woman, whited-headed woman.
Maybe you can spend the night, maybe you can spend the night.
Won’t get much sleep then, but we’ll feel all right.
Won’t get much sleep then, but we’ll feel all right.

I can tell by the look in your eyes
it has come as no surprise
by the way that you lick your lips
you know what you’re gonna get.

Cause I want you White-headed woman
Cause I want you White-headed woman.
I want you this afternoon, I want you this afternoon
White-headed woman, whited-headed woman.
Please come soon, please come soon.
I can feel the vibes a humpin on through the room.
I can feel the vibes a humpin on through the room.

White-headed woman


We Live On Day To Day

Now if you ever think twice
about takin our advice
to live on day to day.
Aw now woman with the golden eyes,
how can we make you realize
that we live on day to day.

Runnin wild on a foggy day
can’t see two feet in front of me.
we live with danger everyday (the bomb)
there may never be another way
to see the unknown of any day.

So we live on day to day.
Yes we live on day to day.

Live every minute of your life my friend
you never know when it may end.
But I’ll always say,
live every second of your life my friend
at least you’ll know it did begin,
after the fog blows away.

So we live on day to day.
Yes we live on day to day.

Aw now woman with the golden eyes,
how can we make you realize
that we live on day to day.


Short Life Line

A fine lookin woman
walked up to me yesterday.
She grabbed my palm,
here’s what she had to say.

Oooh you got a short life line.
Oooh you ain’t got much time.
But your eyes’ll never be blind
and you’re gonna have a damn good time.

Said yea yea mama
short and sweet.
Lots of places to see,
also people to meet.

My life has already been full,
so I can’t complain.
Yea, and after I’m dead
they’ll remember my name.

But mystic thoughts can only fly
to another plane.
That’s why when you look in my eyes
you think I’m insane.

Watch while we harness energy
from the multitudes,
then ride it bare-back
on our high energy tunes.

Now that woman
no longer held my hand.
She was feelin my body,
she knew I’d understand.

Oooh you got a short life line.
Oooh you ain’t got much time.
But your eyes’ll never be blind
and you’re gonna have a damn good time.


Don’t Confuse What You Don’t Know

You’re troubled in your head.
Good times have come and gone.
Your feet are at your knees and
you feel that you’ve gone wrong.
All night you’re all alone,
your heart now needs a song.

With nights so sad and dark,
there’s no one by your side.
Your fever’s runnin high and
you’ve got no place to hide.
She took you for a ride,
your heart feels that it’s died.

Don’t confuse what you don’t know.
There’s no way to say.
What you have
may be a hopeless case.

Tell me of your story,
then tell me of your song.
Then we’ll smoke and think on it
and think of what you’ve done.
Yea, what you’ve done.

Don’t confuse what you don’t know.
There’s no way to say.
What you have
may be a hopeless case.

Now have you found yourself
and where you want to be?
Think before you say your piece,
then go and speak it free!
