A dream on a ride, a thrill every night And I know we're gonna bring it on for a long, long time To all the people we meet on the way We would be nowhere without all of your love and we'll thank you till our dyin' day So bow to the pedal and go Take me on a ride now honey I wanna get some more Take another ride One more time Ya make me wanna ride now honey Get on and get some more Take another ride A breath for the soul, a wish for the wise And I know its only a matter of time before the people rise Wherever we go the road is our bride And she will hold on to our love affair no matter how far we ride So Bow to the pedal and go Take me on a ride now honey I wanna get some more Take another ride One more time All night long now honey Get out and get some more Take another ride And nothing hurts like yesterday But facing fears will help them wash away The only road that you can pave Is the one you face today So bow to the pedal and go A dream on a ride, a thrill every night And we're gonna keep on playing out for a long, long time To all the people we meet on the way We would be nowhere without all of your love and I'll thank you till my dyin' day

Starving I lick my lips I'm back to sleeping with the beast There's a whiff of a dream and it seems to believe to believe in me The voices are building outside like a message on fire I can see a way out but it's barely out of reach But not for long cuz we've been Born to be Born born to be Born born to be loud The silence of the people is the greatest fear I have What’s the point of a voice if you're not strong enough to deliver its value Our people are hungry for justice But just as we stand up a face on the screen's saying Quiet down all of you But not for long cuz we've been Born to be Born born to be Born born to be loud Born to be Born born to be Born born to be loud Born to be Born born to be Born born to be loud

We have a situation starting to unfold Slowly pride and pressure have come in to take their toll We have to discover, got to discover, another way to start the day Cuz the taste of proper swine is gone Down by the Butcher's Bay the slaughterhouse is stoned Too much violence in the silence of the Wardens' home Back to another, back to another, famine for the banner hall So stock up before they ban it all The Butcher and the Baker What have you become? Makin Bacon for the Nation Hungrily we watch em feed Outside the paradise is looking pretty bleak Students and the children getting shot down in the streets Blood for your prayers, bread for the Mayor, and Liberty's hung on the wall But only divided do we fall The Butcher and the Baker What have you become? Makin Bacon for the Nation Hungrily we watch em feed Run out your rag of chains, we're still standing strong Even when you run the Pigpen rampant all night long We are the brothers down in the gutters, the Brotherhood inside the storm And we have justice to perform The Butcher and the Baker What have you become? Makin Bacon for the Nation Hungrily we watch em feed The Butcher and the Baker

There's nothing you can say to me That could shake my faith in our Family of the Sun, can ya hear me Buying out humanity, selling our democracy Do you know what you've done Slowly filling up the streets there's a general lack of trust in your affairs Growing up inside the throes of greed is not what we will make our children bear Love's the only crown I wanna feel The sun is shining down today So throw your arguments away So we can have some fun, can ya feel me Starting up a family So that love can follow me All of it's just begun Coming home from on the road I told my babe I just don't know what to do She consoled me then she told me baby everything's alright now Loves the only crown I wanna feel Loves the only crown I wanna feel Love's the only crown I wanna feel

Gone is yesterday But we aren't far away Lost but not afraid To say we can a change Wait for me baby I just wanna know Will our passion wake up today Since you've gone away trouble's all I know Every day We could try real hard this time To read between the lines Maybe we can work together (work together) Yeah we could leave the past behind Cuz baby if we try We can work together (work together) Hold on to our song, never let it go Cuz you know we sing it all for you One more night to go, hope we come back soon Some day We could try real hard this time To read between the lines Maybe we can work together (work together) Yeah we could leave the past behind Cuz baby if we try We can work together (work together) We could try real hard this time To read between the lines Maybe we can work together (work together) Yeah we could leave the past behind Cuz baby if we try We can work together (work together) We could try real hard this time To read between the lines Maybe we can work together (work together) Yeah we could leave the past behind Cuz baby if we try We can work together (work together)

Caught by the weight of it all Palm to your face and the moments gone The pain it don't matter at all Today is a better day To stay living you get up when you fall Feel your feet beneath ya till you're standing tall You say that you're ready for a new door Come one I'll help you find the way If you're ready, come on Everybody come on Sold by the bass in the hall Booties rockin' hard and the funk is raw Tonight the Gang is comin out the front door We can wash your stress away The fight ain't about the color you are Its about a brotherhood between us all My sight set on teaching us how to love Together is the only way If you're ready, come on Everybody come on And if you think you've lost your way Bit off more than you could chew today Well get your hands up off the ground Don't let the pressure hold you down Slow down If you're ready come on Everybody come on

You, I got the feeling that you're on to me Yeah your eyes are saying I should join you on the dance floor Babe, I didn't come here for a But girl your gaze is hard to shake off I see your mind's already made up I'll love ya till the morning I'll love ya till the morning sun comes up She held the rhythm in a tambourine And when she smiled I could hardly breathe Her body shakin, curves are makin me dream Babe I wasn't lookin for your love today But now your hips are pressed against me And girl the fire is plain to see Feelin you kiss my lips One hit is all I need to measure your Passion and lust for kicks Our fix is waiting Love me baby I'll love ya till the morning I'll love ya till the morning sun comes up I'll love ya till the morning I'll love ya till the morning sun comes up

In a city full of quiet streets where the pavement grows and the grass is dead There's a girl singing softly down to her little brother sleeping in his bed With her song she caressed the silence and drove the troubled dreams from his head Pulled him out of his isolation, the sweetest remedy he could have And she gave it all She's like a piece of candy I wanna bring her back now She's like a piece of candy Roll back to my younger days when the road was long and the cash was bread Sleeping out in the mountain cold with the dog next to me in my bed Going out to the western shore with another van, another song No matter what the struggle said, she was worth every second all along Yeah she gave it all She's like a piece of candy I wanna bring her back now She's like a piece of candy Looking back on all the sound I tasted, it makes me wanna go feast some more Open ears are an invitation; another bridge, another door A true breath of communication you can't buy in any store And we played it all She's like a piece of candy I wanna bring her back now She's like a piece of candy

Walkin down with my eye to the sky and a mind of pure emotion Not a care in the world and it sure is a symbol of devotion Another mile with a smile I'm alive with a vision to be spoken Livin on and on and on and on I know where I belong Hey Under the thunder I wonder whats coming my way Let it out let it out Hey The ocean of motion I ride with the hope I can stay Let it out let it out Come on down to the ground where the sound is a pulse of our creation What a crown that I found lookin out at the voice of another nation Finally there's a me walking free It's a one man operation Livin on and on and on and on I know where I belong Complacent memories come back to wander My mind eternally but I don't give a shit Hey Under the thunder I wonder whats coming my way Let it out let it out Hey The ocean of motion I ride with the hope I can stay Let it out let it out until ya freak out Leave out in the night When the days of glory come in Leave out by my side Take my soul along

Welcome to the heat he said, A one man stand with his hand on his waistband What can I get ya in for today? I said Hey now, if its alright with you, I'd like to take a wild shot with the pool cue. Whatcha say to that my friend? Well he stood there in black boots He had a badge ready for the law He said watch these angles Then he rocked the ball Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Walker, the Texas Pool Shark He's the Walker One by one by one the kids lined up to get beat by the Texas gun With a smile he'd say thank you for the game I said Wait a minute, How did a cop learn to get the drop on the students flat top like that What's your secret my man? Well he stood there in black boots He had a badge ready for the law He said watch these angles Then he rocked the ball Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Hes the Walker Raise your hand and face the man Make your stand Ranger man Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Walker, the Texas Pool Shark Walker, the Texas Pool Shark He's the Walker, the Texas Pool Shark

Lately the road has been so close I can taste it The cold is seeping in but we made it One more night we can dance the night away Baby the crowd is getting tired of the same shit Yeah music's not a power to be wasted So climb aboard the Mothership and ride the night away On and on and on Once again let the rock and roll live on Like a wheel bearing down to save the sound we're paid to play Cuz I'd rather have more time than money Outside the people working harder just to get by And every single rule you gotta play by Has got another feeling it wants to drive away The wayside is closer every single mile we ride Crawling through the bowels of the south side Seven of our soldiers setting out to join the fray I feel like a weight is gone And we've made it this far A song is just a chance to find out what we really are On and on and on Once again let the rock and roll live on Like a wheel bearing down to save the sound we're paid to play Cuz I'd rather have more time than money n and on and on Once again let the rock and roll live on Like a wheel bearing down to save the sound we're paid to play Cuz I'd rather have more time than money
