"Walls And Doors"

"Walls And Doors"



Ever since the world's existed
There's one thing that is certain
There are those who build walls
And those who open doors
Ah but this my love I'm thinking you already knew

For some it's always winter
While others have the spring
Some people find good fortune
While others never find a thing
Ah but this my love is something you already knew

That's how it's always been
And I know you know it
There can be freedom only when nobody owns it
I'm going to say that again
Because I know you know it
There can be freedom only when nobody owns it

Of what use is the moon if you don't have the night?
Of what use is a windmill with no Quixote left who'll fight?
Ah but this my love is something you already knew
At some point on the horizon
Sky can be confused with earth
Some people dream of God
While others dream of wealth
But of course my love this is what you see out on the street

It's how it's always been
And I know you know it
There can be freedom only when nobody owns it
Let me say that again
Because I know that we both know it
There can be freedom only when nobody owns it
When nobody owns it
When nobody owns it

Ever since the world's existed
There's one thing that is certain
Some people build walls
Others open doors

"We Can Be"

"We Can Be"



Talk with me
I believe that we can find a tomorrow
Lend to me and I will try to borrow
I can see you and me
Love is free
We can be free

Sing with me
Melodies that soar as high as a swallow
I can lead the way if you will follow
I can see you and me
Love is free
We can be free

You show me
Words of beauty that describe your love
Let me know the things that you are sure of
I can see you and me
Love is free
We can be free

You know me
I'm as reckless as a mountain stream
Careless as a could-be, someday dream
I can see you and me
Love is free
We can be free

"We're Off To See The Wizard"
(feat. Jewel)

"We're Off To See The Wizard"
(feat. Jewel)



We're off to see the Wizard,
the wonderful Wizard of Oz.
We hear he is a wiz of a wiz
If ever a wiz there was.

If ever, oh ever, a wiz there was,
the Wizard of Oz is one because,
because, because, because, because, because-
because of the wonderful things he does.

We're off to see the Wizard,
the wonderful Wizard of Oz.

"When The Stone Begins To Turn"

"When The Stone Begins To Turn"



I come here for Dr. King
Who gave the people a precious thing
He found a light in the darkest hour
And the strength for speaking truth to power

And in the years since they shot him down
You see changes that once were a dream
Begin to come around

When the walls have begun to crumble
When the laws have begun to burn
When the wind is singing freedom
When the stone begins to turn

And I come here to praise Mandela
And to send this message to his jailer
Your walls may hold the man inside
But they'll never ever hold back the tide

'Cause in the years you've shut him away
A generation has grown where he stood
They're gonna see the day

When the walls have begun to crumble
When the laws have begun to burn
When the wind is singing freedom
When the stone begins to turn

We come here to sing for freedom
And to send our voices to the ones who need them
Freedom for South Africa
And justice for Nelson Mandela

'Cause in the years they've shut him away
A generation has grown where he stood
We're gonna see the day

When the walls have begun to crumble
When the laws have begun to burn
When the wind is singing freedom
When the stone begins to turn

"Where Were You"

"Where Were You"



Where were you when the sky cracked open?
Heading for shelter and barely coping
Thinking you could ride the storm out,
Hoping it would be all right
Where were you when they gave the warning?
Hundred fifty-mile winds by morning
Category four making landfall in the wild grey light
Where were you?

Where were you in the social order?
The Lower Nine or a hotel in the Quarter
Which side of the border between rich and poor?
Where were you going to evacuate to?
Assuming there was any way to
Where, if you didn't own a car?
Where were you?

Where were you when you understood
However decent, however good
However hard some people try
They only barely make it by
They're born, and live their entire lives in harm's way

Where were you when you heard the stranded,
The injured and the empty handed
Were running out of food and water at the Superdome?
With the newborn and the elderly
Exposed to even more misery
While those in charge of rescue
Waited for the Guard to come
And those who left the Convention Center
Were stopped on the bridge when they tried to enter
The safety of the west bank, and higher ground
And when the Guard finally did arrive
And got to work on about day five
Mainly they were used to keep the looting down
Where were you?

Where were you when you realized
However strong, however wise
However true our leaders appear to be
When they talk about prosperity
However hard this country strives
If property is valued more than lives
How strong will we ever really be?
How long do we imagine we'll be free?

We hold the truth self evident:
The photograph of the President
From Air Force One, he views the devastation
Shaved face, rested eyes
Looking down, he circles twice
On his way home from his vacation
Where were you, when you got the picture?
Where were you?
Where were you when the streets filled up with black water?

Where were you when defeat and destruction
Reigned in the Crescent
Where were you when it blew from every direction
Where were you when the promise was made
To return, and rebuild, and restore to its people
The city that gave us the first American music
True inspiration and the freedom to use it
Where will we find it again, if we lose it?
And where will we be, if we ever cease to love?
If we ever cease to love ...

"Which Side"

"Which Side"



You might be a young man with the mountain in his step
In search of El Dorado, but you haven't found it yet
Or you might be an old man with his whole life at his back
And you can hear eternity whispering down the track
Or maybe you're a woman, or just about to be
And you can feel the generations swimming in your sea
But you know that it's coming, as surely as the dawn
The battle for the future, baby, which side are you on?

Come on come on come on if you're coming
Come on come on come on
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Which side are you on?
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Battle lines are drawn
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Which side - which side are you on?

Which side?
The corporations attacking
The natural world - drilling and fracking
All done with the backing of the craven and corrupt
Or the ones who fight
For the Earth with all their might
And in the name of all that's right
Confront and disrupt

There's a restlessness out in the street there's a question in the air
How long if this theft goes on will our country still be here?
People know the game is rigged even as they play
They see their expectations slowly slip away
They've got subsidies for billionaires, there's a bailout for the banks
A monopoly on medicine, and a sale on armored tanks
The whole damned country's being sold - out that revolving door
Between Washington and Wall Street like it's one big Dollar Store

Come on come on come on if you're coming
Come on come on come on
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Which side are you on?
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Battle lines are drawn
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Which side - which side are you on?

Which side?
The bankers and their special friends
Who rob you time and again
Who like to pretend they're the only game in town
Or the people who
Hope with everything they do
They can build something new
And turn this world around

Who owns the elections? Who profits either way?
Who ends up with all that money politicians pay?
To be the fearless leader, to put themselves across
To be the one entrusted with the profit and the loss
You try hard to believe that when you cast your vote it counts
But elections are won with money in ever larger amounts
Take the money out of politics and maybe we might see
This country turn back into something more like democracy

Come on come on come on if you're coming
Come on come on come on
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Which side are you on?
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Battle lines are drawn
Come on come on come on if you're coming
Which side - which side are you on?

"World In Motion"

"World In Motion"



Sun going down in the USA
Down on Main there's a family sleeping in a doorway
Around the corner you can hear the sound
People dancing around the golden calf
Those who have not, those who have

On the billboards and the T.V. screens
They got food and cars and toys and trucks and jeans
Like a homeless child's fitfull dreams
Smiling faces free from wanting
Life's abundances beyond counting

World in motion - speed your changes
Close your distances, find your angels
Lose your fears and meet your dangers
World in motion

Once we were running through smoke and fire
Running into the sun
In the rush of youth, for love and truth
Our deeds were done
Now we awake with a world at stake
And a race we run
We run

Sun going down on the USA
Sun coming up a hundred years away
On another world and another time
Things like hunger, greed and hatred
One way or another, gonna be eradicated

World in motion - speed your changes
Close your distances, drive your angels
Lose your fears and meet your dangers
World in motion

'Till the world I look out at this world and see
Is the world I know this world can be
You have a volunteer in me
Now come on

"Yeah Yeah"

"Yeah Yeah"



You know I don't lead you and you know I don't feed you no lies
And it's not up to me to tell you what you see through your eyes
You know girl sometimes I just don't know
Where it is you still think you can go
Without taking my world with you maybe you don't realize
Yeah yeah

That time that I met you there's something that set you apart
The smile on your face, or your lips, or the taste of your heart
You followed me away from your home
And we're out here in this world on our own
And it's too late to go back and it's too late to leave me alone
Yeah yeah

'Cause you paid for the love that we've got, you paid
And you made for the heart when we fought and you stayed
Was it strength or your pride that sent you back inside
For the love that you paid for
Or was it for the love that we've made
Yeah yeah

You know I don't lead you and you know I don't feed you no lies
Maybe I didn't come with instructions like some other guys
You see me standing at the window with our world at my back
And my eyes down the road
Staring at the wreckage of a lifetime strewn along the track
And the seeds I sowed
You think I'm wishing I was some other place but in fact
I'm right here
With my shoulder to the wheel
And my heart in the deal
Yeah yeah
And you can see it's not always easy
And maybe that makes you crazy
But can you see that I've bet all I had
That you'd go on making me glad
That I found your love in this world
After times were so bad
Yeah yeah

And you paid for the love that we've got, you paid
And you made for the heart when we fought and you stayed
Is it faith or your will
That keeps you hanging on still
For the love that you paid for
Or is it for the love that we've made
Yeah yeah

"You Asshole You"

"You Asshole You"



Well it came to me as you came,
You don't even know my name.
You'd just as soon be fucking a doornob,
You asshole you.

You'll fuck anything that moves,
And I'll tell you what that proves:
You just want meat, you don't want me,
You asshole you.

Well you wish that I was stronger,
and could last a little longer.
I get so mad that I could spit.
I don't need that kind of shit.

Well you toyed with my affection,
And you laughed at my errection,
And its lack of circumsection,
You asshole you.

"You Didn't Need A Cloud"

"You Didn't Need A Cloud"



As I saw you, you were looking through your window
Looking at the clouds to know which way the wind blows
You saw me - I was walking down your highway
You didn't need a cloud to know the wind was blowing my way
You didn't need a cloud to know the wind was blowing my way
And wasn't it fine
All the questions and the answers were mine

I sang you a song about my walking
A song I felt I had no right or reason to sing
But you showed me that no matter what is said in song
A singer has the right to sing as long as he can go on
A singer has the right to sing as long as he can go on
And isn't it true
Now all the questions and the answers come from you
