Takes a toll To be free Take a carry-all and Pack it up with no more than you need Up in the middle of the night I am waiting for the light We could make a little fire From this fallen cedar tree Pick up soles Chicken feet Underneath the truck I'm Hanging on and hell am I beat Up in the middle of the night I am waiting for a sign I could take a little lie down A hundred feet beneath the sea Dig a hole Dig it deep Do be good enough To let a brother get a good night's sleep Up in the middle of the night I am witnessing a crime And these lunatics and liars Are calling out to let it be

Green Fire 02:59
I don't need any proof I can feel it in my gut This old woman bears an evil omen Bring a black horse out the front Take her to the bridge, throw her in the water If she don't sink like she ought to Take her to the town, put her on the pyre And when she burns we all get burnt By waves of green fire I'm an ordinary man I've got a right to be heard These ashes bear an incantation Scrape them up from the dirt Take them to the bridge, throw them in the water If they don't sink like they ought to Take them to the town, put them on the pyre And when they burn we all get burnt By waves of green fire

Up above my head I hear music in the air Up above my head I hear music in the air Up above my head I hear music in the air And I really do believe, really do believe In the Lord somewhere All in my home I hear music in the air All in my home I hear music in the air Up above my head I hear music in the air And I really do believe, really do believe In the Lord somewhere

Working Hard 03:48
All you hard working people Will be delivered And you lazy boys Can sit there and shiver in the cold Try not to get sick or old Working hard and getting nowhere Coming in on a wing and a prayer Don't even know if I want to go there If at the end of the road There's a penniless soul like you to meet me Just a tumbler of vodka And a pillow of feathers Is all I need to be ready to weather the storm I feel like I've been here before Working hard and getting nowhere Coming in on a wing and a prayer Don't even know if I want to go there If at the end of the road There's a penniless soul There's a penniless soul There's a penniless soul

You never listen when I sing Or let me shelter beneath your wings Dear Lord above I just don't want to be loved by you We don't talk much anymore I'm sick of fighting and I'm tired of war Dear Lord above I just don't want to be loved by you It's just a game that you played It's time to abandon any plans we made Dear Lord above I just don't want to be loved I just don't want to be loved I just don't want to be loved I just don't want to be loved

Thought I'd been saved Crest of a wave I fell and hit the shore Lost some friends Ne'er do wells I ain't even going to show these people Out the door Everything's broke Why can't it be just like it used to be There's still some hope That you're the person that's going to Fix it all up for me Thought I could choose What to keep and what to lose These useless things I've accrued They become scars They'll break your heart If you can mend them don't Throw them away

Blue Bear 03:44
You know there’s nothing in the woods But what’s that sound? Maybe better turn back now Maybe better turn back now Feeling like I’ve been here before In my déjà vu Maybe better turn back now Maybe better turn back now There may be troubles on the way But that blue bear is more afraid of you I wish I could call And you’d appear To calm me down You gotta calm me down I wish I could feel Right again You gotta calm me down You gotta calm me down Wait until the blue bear’s gone And hear the bluebird sing You got to get right up And you got to brush yourself down There’s no shame in feeling down down down You got to get right up And you got to brush yourself down

Old Timers 04:28
Here's some old timers And they're going to have a party And we're all invited There's some cherry tobacco 'Cause I stole it from your packet And there's coal on the fire Old age waits for no man I can't wait for dreamland Here's a warm blanket And when someone sings a song you start to Gaze at the night sky And it all seems so pretty that you know that you are blessed Just be here and see this

See Green 03:00
Lover, you don't need to suffer Troubles, buried in the rubble Nor should you feel Like a spoke in the wheel 'Cause I see green You get blue and yell oh you must hate me You see red but I know you you'll see green See green Summer's written in the colours One shade looks just like the other You can feel free To disagree 'Cause I see green Brother you're just like a lover Six of one and half a dozen Laughing at me Beautifully 'Cause I see green

There's intruders in the store Shouting 'everybody get down' So we hit the floor I don't feel safe Behind the wall I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls And it's the summertime I smell your sweet perfume It lingers on my clothes and in my hair And if you cover me with lime Under a strawberry moon Lay me down in the clothes that I'm wearing And if I ran I could reach the door But there are so very few things worth dying for And if my time's up I'll heed the call I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls And my final thought Is I don't even blame these fools If I were in their shoes I might do the same Yeah I could have fought But I didn't want to lose you Everything we have done has been in vain I'm going to wait, I'm going to wait I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls I'm going to wait, I'm going to wait I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls I'm going to wait til the last bullet falls
