Track Name: Robbed & Beaten Down
Evil stalks this land
and death walks hand in hand
Caused by the greed of man
It's time to make a stand

Earth is bleeding now
She's robbed and beaten down
Time to disavow
the rape that we allow

There's a soul revolution, brother you know
Time to show there's a solution, sister you know

Now many share this dream
To foil their evil schemes
Knowledge is the key
and love still saves the day
Track Name: Domino
Up to your neck in water
Feeling like you're drowning
If you didn't try to swim you'd be floating
But you let your body weigh you down
I shouldn't have to tell you
Don't let your body weigh you down

You really love your lover
You feel it in each other
The white clouds up above are all flowers
But the rain they make can take you down
I shouldn't have to tell you
The rain they make can take you down

Domino falls but the game isn't won
Destiny calls to the Prodigal Son
So tear down the walls til the captives are none
This dog calls for his day to be done

When the question is the answer
Ya gotta take a chance
For the quest is just a dance for the jester
But the pain you gain can bring you down
I shouldn't have to tell you
The pain you gain can bring you down
Track Name: Modern Times
Eyes aflame in nights of madness
I lost my head and I flew too soon
In the waves of a cloud burst
I'm coming down in blue and gold
But I will climb
I will ride you
I'll survive these modern times

Feathered native in the forest
I pick my way through the gloom
But I will smile and I will cry too
I'll survive these modern times
On a rain soaked Chelsea morning
A sunny song's gonna fill my mind

I was waiting for a handout
I never thought I'd have to pay my dues
With my head held high
In dreams I fly to you
And I will survive these modern times
On a rain soaked Chelsea morning
A sunny song's gonna fill my mind
Track Name: Solar
Don't need no religion to carry me home
No God or Devil on a fiery throne
All I need's the wind and the water and trees
It's the only thing that makes any sense to me

Come down to the waterfall
Up to the higher call
Out to the ether way
to the promised land

Preacher telling lies just to make his pay
And a politician bringing on the end of our days
Oil man selling the smack for our veins
and a banker man stealing the funds we raise

Come down to the waterfall
Up to the higher call
Out to the ether way
to the promised land
Just follow the sound of the band

Don't want no television raising my kids
Don't need no class so dontcha give me no lip
And no law man telling me not to speed
I'm a young man shouting "Free the weed!"
Track Name: Fool For Love
Love's a slow sweet suicide, so
Won't you lay by my side, oh love

A man could use a place to hide
Someone to hear his alibis
To find the truth behind the lies, oh love
Many times I've cried

It's a devil in your eyes
A wolf in sheep's disguise
Something I can criticize when I'm wrong
Imagine my surprise

Love has a way of creeping over you
And when it's gone
It will confound you
So let it surround you
'Cause when it's found you
You're a fool for love

Love's a slow sweet suicide, so
Won't you lay by my side
Until the day we close our eyes, oh love

Said our love
It opened up my eyes
