Track Name: Song Number One
Oh, when will you discover
we could make it on our own
it ain't their place to treat us this way
you can't get blood out of a stone

and I've seen the burnin' of the field
and all that lies beneath the sun
I've seen the simple truth revealed
would leave you shocked and stunned

you take what you can gather
and you leave what you will not use
they take what they want and they scatter
and they kill what they can't abuse

oh, mother never told me
never told me it could be so bad
mama, please don't let them take me
from the only home I've ever had

the sands, they drift
the sea explodes
eroding, the mountain fades
the forest grows
and I am blown away, blown away
blown away, blown away,
blown away, blown away
Track Name: CKI
close your eyes and listen
be patient, both sun and rain
at death become time

it passes, we follow
do you think it would take us long
if i were strong

don't mind us
if only they knew
what they could do together
Track Name: Don't Lose Your Head
don't lose your head
the captain is alive
don't lose your head
the captain is alive
and if I'm not mistaken
help will soon arrive

don't lose your head
shake your shackles loose
don't lose your head
shake your shackles loose
ain't got no other choice now
ain't got no excuse

this ship is sinkin'
we all gonna drown
this ship is sinkin'
we all gonna drown
gotta grab hold of that wheel
gotta turn this ol' ship around

don't lose your head
the captain is still alive
don't lose your head
the captain is still alive
gotta give him to that ocean
if we hope to survive
Track Name: Dead bin Laden Blues (What Have You Done to Us?)
any minute now
I'm expecting to see your face
any minute now
I'm expecting to take your place
I would walk across the desert sand
with a dagger mounted in my hand
just to save, just to save this wasted land

any minute now
I'm hoping to watch you cry
any minute now
I'm hoping to watch you die
You took the only one that I ever loved
You took her to the precipice and you gave her a shove
and you pretended like it was a fight between the hawks and the doves

any minute now
I'm expecting to take to the sea
any minute now
they'll broadcast your last moments on live TV
they'll walk you to the gallows and they won't say goodbye
I will watch you hang in your coat and your tie
and I won't feel guilty, no, I won't even try

any minute now
you'll be expecting to be cut loose
any minute now
they'll pull the lever and drop the noose
and I will take it home as a souvenir
I will hang it on my wall like a trophy deer
and not a single one of us will have anything left to fear
Track Name: In the Air
be as sound: expanding
outward into everything
we are the rain and the sun
which bring us life

but there are those
who will gladly see you suffer
there are those
who hate the Earth
there's nowhere
that they will not tarnish
they don't care
what's in the air you're takin' in

be as wind:
gently moving everything you meet

be as light: reflecting
yourself onto everything
not asserting
just exerting, it's all you have its
everything

there are those
who will gladly see you suffer
there are those
who hate the Earth
there's nowhere
that they will not tarnish
they don't care
what's in the air you're takin' in

be as time:
ever astonished by the present tense
Track Name: Naked
throw away your knives
and your new telephones
the power of your love
is etched in my bones

one day we two
will be written in the sky
and if you can't find the words
it's okay to cry

there's just one beginning
and a multitude of ends
and when I am dead
I will meet up with my friends

sorrow abounds
and guilt shames us all
and our hair changes colors
like the leaves in the fall

you can run from sin
but if you run far enough
you'll run into it again
and if your room starts to spin
I will see you then

sit and enjoy this time
while you can
all that you have
is the hand in your hand

strength will uphold you
but it comes from within
and you will be heard
above the noise and the din

I've learned too much
to fit into this note
it spills out my ears
and the holes in my coat

life will continue
it needs to be said
it needs to be sung
it needs to be read

you can run from sin
but if you run far enough
you'll run into it again
and if your room starts to spin
I will see you then

please don't remember
my face or my name
I don't need your accolades
or your honor
or your fame

but please, hold on to
the love that I shared
whenever you're hungry
or tired or scared

please, hold on to
the love that I shared
whenever you're hungry or
naked or tired or
scared

you can run from your grief
but if you do that
you're just another thief
you can run from your grief
but I warn you,
the days are brief
