Track Name: Must Be Sin
I dropped by to ask her why
But you can't ask
Why a bird must fly
Ooh
Ooh-ooh
Oooh

I know it must be a sin
When these dark clouds wander in
But you can't teach a dog new tricks
He gonna scratch till it don't itch

Hung my head down to the ground
I hit the road
But couldn't leave this town

No tell motel but no sleep
Toss and turn
Rewind and repeat

Freedom tastes like dust

The price is pain no matter what
Take your shot
Or die a thousand cuts
Track Name: I'm Going To The Caribbean
I'm going to the Caribbean
I'm going to the land of sun
Gonna stop my shivering
Gonna have me some fun

I'm gonna smoke cigars
I'm gonna drink some rum
Gonna stroll along the beach
To the beat of my own drum

I'm going to the Caribbean
I'm going to the land of sun
Gonna stop my shivering
Gonna have me some fun

There's ice on the powerlines
Along the snow packed streets
I'm bundled up so thick
I'm a frozen mummy freak

I'm going to the Caribbean
I'm going to the land of sun
Gonna stop my shivering
Gonna have me some fun

Can't feel my hands
Can't feel my nose
And don't talk about my feet
And in the morning
When I rise
I haven't got no heat

I'm going to the Caribbean
I'm going to the land of sun
Gonna stop my shivering
Gonna have me some fun

I'm pale as a ghost
Look what Mother Nature done
A week without no power
Has got me on the run

I'm going to the Caribbean
I'm going to the land of sun
Gonna stop my shivering
Yeah I'm going to have some fun

The days are short
The nights are long
And my nose keeps on running
I've tried to ski
I've tried to skate
I just need some sunning

I gotta get away
Gotta book a cruise
Gotta find some sun
Tired of living in igloos
Give me some relief please
Track Name: Free Man
I've had a spot of trouble
Yeah there's been a little strife
I am pulled here and there
I've got an obligated life

It's like I'm caught in a thicket
With thorns all around
So I try not to move
Not to make a single sound

Oooooh to be
A free man
A free man

Got the weight of expectations
Squeezing out my breath
So I try to find some solace
By seeking little deaths

But the answers can't be found
In a little black dress
Or on a mountain top
Or in some sacred text

I see the prison bars
But the keys are in my hand
Am I incarcerated
Or the jailor man?

Well, no one's here to tell you
It's for you to figure out
Are you gonna take the risk
Or will you stay devout?
Track Name: C'Mon Baby
C'mon baby
C'mon baby
Show me all your love

C'mon sugar
C'mon suger
Flow it from above

C'mon honey
C'mon honey
Make it in the sun

C'mon darling
C'mon darlin'
Have a little fun


You can never tell
When it's done done done
When the rain will come
Chase away the sun
So c'mon sugar darlin
Let's make a little love
Once for your heart
Again just for the buzz
Track Name: No Home
I ain't got no home
No place to call my own
Oh whoa
Home

Stoned
Gonna get so stoned
Cause I'm out her all alone
loooone
Stoned

Bed
I ain't got no bed
No place to lay my head
Oh whoa
Bed

Food
I ain't got no food
What I got is booze
Boo-oo-ooze
Booze

Love
I ain't got no love
My mama's up above
La-da-de- daaaa
Love

Hope
I ain't got no hope
All I got's this dope
Noo-oo-oo-oh
Dope


You keep on walking
Like I am disease
You look away away
When I beg you please


Pain
A world so full of pain
Can't make it go away
A-way-ee-ahhh way
Pain

Home
I ain't got no home
Out here all alone
Oh-ooh-ooh
Home
Track Name: Sleep Walker
Wake up wake up sleep walker
Tomorrow's gonna be a better day
Wake up wake up sweet talker
I've gotta go but you know I wanna stay

(chorus)

Keep your head up Move along
Spirt moves you Sing this song
Get right with God Then move along
The spirit moves you Sing this song

Speak up speak up dear mother
I know you've got something to say
Speak up speak up dear father
The cat's got your tongue but it's okay

(chorus)

Look up look up deep thinker
The world is round and the sky is blue
Look up look up navel gazer
The birds are singing secrets just for you

Keep your head up Move along
Spirt moves Sing this song
Get right with God Then move along
The spirit moves Sing this song
Track Name: A Thousand Shades of Blue
A Thousand Shades of Blue

Here we are
A thousand shades of blue
I've got my shades
And so do you
We've got to rise up
From this ocean blue
Swim with the dolphins
Beneath a pale blue moon

Ohhhhhhh

Here we are
A thousand shades of blue
You've got your faves
And I do too
We orbit round
This blue globe
In our little capsules
Doing what we're told

Ohhhhh

Here we are
A thousand shades of blue
The colours of the open sky
And the great seas too
Check the periscope
Of our submarine
All those sunny people
In our deep blue dream

Sometimes I manage
To break through
Taste all those pretty colours
All those other hues
But it can't last
No matter what I do
I just sink down
In this ocean blue

Oh, what will we do
Deep within us
A thousand shades of blue
Track Name: I Don't Give A Shit
Kissing caramello on the rockefeller square
Met the kangamonga man who stopped to give a stare
Careful there young fellow in case you sprain your lips
Watch out for the rattle snakes/they're sure to sink your ship

The pick up from the stick up hold the tools of the trade
The dudes of Deuteronomy died on the esplanade
The pretty porno princess likes to think she has no shame
The mandibles of canibals bite harder when there's pain

The kings and queens of zanzibar let loose upon the land
The skinny grinning guru had a transcendental plan
The distinction of extinction escapes the last one left
And When they pick your pocket call it taxes stead of theft

I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
You just gotta know when it's time to quit

The domesticated tiger kept in ball and chains
It was all rather shocking when he used his claws and fangs
The video went viral but no one can explain
How all the guts and gore can never leave a stain

Both the judge and the jury jumped at the chance
It was all circumstantial that the boil met the lance
The waitress in the witness box gave them all a wink
And in the power corridors things began to stink

All the sexy secrets soon began to leak
And the public clamoured for just a little peek
In the helicopters the captains placed their bets
For the Kangamonga man it was the final step

I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
You just gotta know when it's time to quit


The politician and mortician very different takes
When the half baked polynesian burst the chocolate cake
The melancholic alcholic playing minor chords
Be sure to buy everything you never could afford

The copious confetti rained down upon their heads
But the IRS ensured they were truly bled
The comedy of errors had many episodes
Left me wishing for a gangster calling Al Capone

The chaplain's in the cathouse checking out the nurse
The exchequor dips his pecker in the public purse
The constellation of abrasions always have a cost
But the gawkers and sleepwalkers are always at a loss

I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
You just gotta know when it's time to quit
Track Name: Set Your Phaser On To Stun
Set Your Phaser On To Stun

Come along now little one
Set your phaser on to stun
Something's lurking in your mind
But if you kill it it's a crime

Jump on down the rabbit hole
What does the mad hatter know
The sharpened senses of the blind
The power of the open mind.

It's nourished now it's really fed
Off to school to kill it dead
Or ditch the classes for some fun
Set your phaser on to stun
Track Name: You Got To Be Free
You Got To Be Free

I've been lost in the desert/ I've been lost without rain
I've been tossed in the garbage/ And I've been tosssed in the flames

I've been kicked to the curb/ And punched in the head
Listened to lies /And believed what I read

I've been thrown to the wolves/And sold for a song
I've been brought to my knees/ And told to stay strong

I won't swallow your shit/ Or just play along
I won't say you're right/ When I know that your wrong

Chorus

Gonna live how I want and make my own way
I won't choke it down and pretend it's okay
Ain't nobody nowhere got nothing on me
See the Beatles were right - you got to be free


They say that pride precedeth the fall/
They say you can't make it over the wall
But maybe it pays not to listen too close
You can grasp at the wisps or give up the ghost

I've been washed in the water and bathed in the blood
I've been flung in the river and slung with the mud
I've been at my best and seen at my worst
Blessed by a fool and stained with this curse

Down in the trenches here comes the gas
If I'm not the first I might be the last
Don't matter how long don't matter how fast
Got my eye on the future and not on the past


Chorus

Gonna live how I want and make my own way
I won't choke it down and pretend it's okay
Ain't nobody nowhere got nothing on me
See the Beatles were right - you got to be free


Got a tat to remind me and one to forget
Got a drug to define me and one to reject
Up on the scoreboard you'll see my name
I'm the one with the zero running from shame

I am the sinner who casts the first stone
The prodigal child who can never come home
See the garden was never half what it seemed
Some wormy fruit and a snake in a tree

I've slipped in the back and put on a front
I've acted the part and did my own stunts
I've suffered a flood and been left with a thirst
And I've led with my heart that's been the worst

Chorus

Gonna live how I want and make my own way
I won't choke it down and pretend it's okay
Ain't nobody nowhere got nothing on me
See the Beatles were right - you got to be free
