Dead in the water every night Wander off into the wild into everything You’re all alone under the sky Now you’re back lying next to me, it’s everything I wanna be It’s everything I wanna be It’s like you’re flying but you’re not in your body With all the waves perfectly breathing in synchrony Don’t try to fight it like it’s kung fu karate I only want you next to me, it’s everything I wanna be It’s everything I wanna be Until the end of time I’ll be with you when the robots rule their dynasty And even when I die I’ll come back as your favorite tree, be anything you want from me Be anything you want from me It’s like you’re flying but you’re not in your body With all the waves perfectly breathing in synchrony Don’t try to fight it like it’s kung fu karate I only want you next to me, it’s everything I wanna be It’s everything I wanna be I wish that I could close my eyes And make you all disappear The sun, the sky is all we have from here It’s in the air, I can feel it It’s like you’re flying but you’re not in your body With all the waves perfectly breathing in synchrony Don’t try to fight it like it’s kung fu karate I only want you next to me, it’s everything I wanna be It’s everything I wanna be

Deadleaves 04:58
Dead leaves fall onto the ground As she runs on down the hall crying For someone she hasn’t seen in years But he’s been here all this time The darkness settled in He can see her despair on her face Is it something I said or maybe something I didn’t? Won’t you dry your tears, Momma? The rain will fall down, down, down Alone at a table, by and by I called on the phone but you’re still not there We walk out to the car With a touch upon her gentle face I guess this is goodbye or maybe hello again Cause I can’t let it go on Thought these scars would fade away But the pain just won’t subside And she never thought she’d see her son again Won’t you dry your tears, Momma? The rain will fall down, down, down Alone at a table, by and by I called on the phone but you’re still not there I’m not gonna say goodbye I’m not gonna say goodbye I’m not gonna say goodbye I’m not gonna say

Whitesnake 05:37
I watched you down by the riverside, you never know I caught you rocking to Whitesnake on the radio Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down? Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down? Well, no one wants you around I caught a wave in your graveyard in the dead of night And all these bottles and bones cry out, we both survived, high five But I never thought that I could just fly under skies awesome blue And it’s all my fault, a bottle for me’s like a shotgun for you And I should’ve burned in the basement with you The lights all aligned like the night we got faded Just hanging like sneakers on a telephone wire You look superfly, and, oh by the way, kid I always knew that it was you that broke my skateboard in half And it was me that set your dog on fire, get on the dance floor You already lost your head, but you wanna stay out all night Well, your mommy wore a snake and your daddy a dress, and you still ended up all right And we just shook our heads and laughed as the fire and ash grew behind us as we’re walking away And everybody always told us that we sounded like Death, but when we asked him, Death had nothing to say, just nod your head more I watched you down by the riverside, you never know I caught you rocking to Whitesnake on the radio Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down? Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down? Well, no one wants you around

Ghost 04:48
Sunk in the garden so deep I’ll never feel you again, but at least I can sleep Now all I’ve got is a dream Where I come back in the Darkness with the moon and the stars, so tonight I will rise, I will rise, I will rise And I will find you under forgotten skies If I came back different, would you still have the same look in your eyes? It’s all out of phase, and now it’s just a bump in the night The water is up to my neck, letting go, here’s the tide Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise Here it comes on the wind and in the darkness of night I can feel it take me in and rip me up inside Follow me through the weeds, yeah, we can run from the light I will find you, take you over to the other side Everyone that I know is just a little bit terrified Of being the right kind of wrong And I came back here to tell you Death is only a state of mind But it’s obvious that I don’t belong Or maybe I should just pretend that I’m gone You see I’ve been here all along Swim past the breakers and into the night Do something dangerous, yeah, your body won’t die when you’re young Yeah, your body won’t die, if it does You will rise, you will rise, you will rise Here it comes on the wind and in the darkness of night I can feel it take me in and rip me up inside Follow me through the weeds, yeah, we can run from the light I will find you, take you over to the other side Everyone that I know is just a little bit terrified Of being the right kind of wrong And I came back here to tell you Death is only a state of mind But it’s obvious that I don’t belong

You’re breaking hearts and pushing daisies And I won’t see you again, so I’ll just wish you well You left the Earth and left me crazy I hope you found your god or you’re enjoying hell They say it still gets cold out in California But I’ll go anyway and just enjoy the love Now I don’t claim to know, but I think I should warn you That when you die and move to your next life, they just might ask you how heaven was Give me the fuzz Now the twilight was violet, all the leaves turning brown I was bathing in the soundwaves, trying to get down And I could never seem to fall asleep without you around To tell you how I feel with my tongue on the ground And if I wait for something better, I could be here for days Watching the world slowly end with a smile on my face So we could head down south and vanish into thin air Start a religion in a strip mall, somewhere nowhere would care And our first hymn could go like this, get ready

Chain 04:05
I’ve walked the Earth now long enough To know everybody’s lost their mind Terrified, not logic-inspired By the talking heads in prime time It doesn’t matter which side you stand on The business plan is to divide They’ve used fear for how many years? It’s been profitable, you can't deny Break the chain Break the chain now Break the chain Break the chain now Break the chain Break the chain now Break the chain Break the chain now I just don’t get now how we forget The history right in front of our eyes So-called experts and all of their guesswork Will say whatever money can buy And the rest just pound their chest And stick their flags on their side Woody Guthrie said it best all those years ago “This land is yours and mine” Break the chain Break the chain now Break the chain Break the chain now Break the chain Break the chain now Break the chain Break the chain now

Well, I heard your body, and I heard your soul Let’s get you something to get down low And if you know karate or jiu-jitsu Just get your body on the fucking dancefloor I got up to take the A-Train down Because the movement’s better when it’s underground Duke and Ella making art and sound Because jazz and graffiti push my brains around Lampin’ on the corner, baby, is where I belong Sunset jazz in Harlem, a poem and a song In the Harlem heat, I sweat my days away The sky’s still orange when the jazz is gray The boombox 80’s and graffiti beats And everyone listens because the streets all speak Still lampin’ on the corner, baby, when the night is gone Sunset jazz in Harlem, a poem and a song
