1 - A Bullet Ain’t Got A Name         

A gun don’t have a face                

a bullet ain’t got a name

a blade not a thought            

all ends the same

 

Tanks don’t have a care         

plane ain’t got a mind

bomb don’t have a soul        

nothing there to find

 

All of these are made by man

Can’t act until guided by a hand

Taking lives every minute of the day

It’s up to us to find a better way

 

Rope don’t have a brain        

sword ain’t got an arm        

club don’t have a pulse            

will we take a stand?

 

Drone can’t feel a thing            

grenades don’t have a heart

rifles got no eyes                

let’s make a new start

 

All of these are made by man

Can’t act until guided by a hand

Taking lives every minute of the day

It’s up to us to find a better way

 

All of these are made by man

Can’t act until guided by a hand

Taking lives every minute of the day

It’s up to us to find a better way

It’s up to us to find a better way

Up to us to find a better way

 

2 - Route 1

Went to see her girls          

under the sweet Southern sky

Love was so strong        

was with them all the time

At the end of the day        

she laid down to rest

When the sunrise came        

she had already left

 

Took Route 1 to heaven’s gate

‘Cause that’s the way that it goes

It’s a trip we all take    

It’s when no one knows

 

Was a hard livin’ man    

who worked day and night

In the last moment        

knew something wasn’t right                     

But he went on ahead        

and bent to the task

Before it was done             

found it was his last

 

Took Route 1 to heaven’s gate

‘Cause that’s the way that it goes

It’s a trip we all take    

It’s when no one knows    

 

Wasn’t a surprise            

he’d been sick for awhile

But when he saw his kids    

still made him smile    

But some things you can’t stop         

just come to an end

He hoped when he arrived        

find himself a friend    

 

Took Route 1 to heaven’s gate

‘Cause that’s the way that it goes

It’s a trip we all take    

It’s when no one knows

When no one knows

When no one knows

 

3 - Mexico                      

Mexico Mexico

knew that I should go        

when I saw my brothers die

 

Life can change without warning

everything comes to an end        

can’t just stand around and cry

 

Mexico Mexico

only place left to go        

when I saw thehouses burn

 

Started walking down the road

carrying what I could            

when the world took such a turn

                            

Mexico Mexico

where warm winds blow        

when I lost my family

 

On the shore of Mexico

Went there all alone        

found a place where I can be

   

On the shore        

found a home        

built a life

end my roamin’    

heal my wounds    

on the sand

5 - Cathedral

Tell me how this world

is like a cathedral

is like a cathedral            

like a cathedral

Tell me how this world

is like a cathedral

And it will show you     

how to pray

 

Mountains rise so high    

to protect us all

Birds fly like angels        

to keep ‘em from a fall

 

Bright light shines         

through a big blue sky

The sun rises every morn’    

makes us want to try    

    

Tell me why this world         

is not a cathedral

not a cathedral                

not a cathedral

Tell me why this world     

is not a cathedral

When you may have

lost your way

 

Stone walls built by man        

block out the sky

Stained glass is beautiful        

but makes me want to cry

 

Roof makes us safe            

but covers the sun

Aisles are wide and pretty        

but there I cannot run

 

Tell me how this world

is like a cathedral

is like a cathedral            

like a cathedral

Tell me how this world

is like a cathedral

And it will show you     

how to pray

 

Holy water runs so clear        

down the waterfall

Seedling grows to a tree        

standing straight and tall

 

Stars at night shine beautiful        

like some kind of art

And a warm breeze from the South

you know it fills my heart

 

Tell me how this world

is like a cathedral

is like a cathedral            

like a cathedral

 

Tell me how this world

is like a cathedral

And it will show you     

how to pray

and you may have found your way

and you will have found your way

7 - The Town Where I Live                

In the town where I live

houses all looked the same

She opened a shop full of rainbows

when she arrived on the noontime train

 

Houses they all looked the same

‘til we discoveredall her colors

When she arrived on the noontime train

and my neighbor choose a green

    

In the town

in the town

in the town where I live

 

In the town where I live        

streets were gray all the time

She hung a sign that said “rainbows”

people wondered what she meant

 

Streets were gray all the time

in the night I dreamt of blue skies

People wondered what she meant

when she wore a coat of purple

 

In the town

in the town

in the town where I live

 

In the night I dreamt of blue skies

she hung a sign that said “rainbows”

And she wore a coat of purple

in the town where I live

 

In the town

in the town

in the town where I live

In the town

in the town

in the town of rainbows

 

8 - ’44 Ford            

There’s a ’44 Ford

on the floor of my basement

might be in parts

but I don’t have a payment

 

Gotta walk everywhere      

I don’t have a car

least I’m not lost        

‘cause I can’t go very far

 

It’s a hard life to handle        

but I’ll live it as I can

Every single day here        

is a gift that I have

Better than the option 

six feet below the land

 

Got a place to rest        

a shack by the river

It’s nice down here        

but I’m not a good swimmer

 

Might be a bit drafty    

there’s holes in the roof

can tell if it’s raining        

if I’m looking for proof

 

It’s a hard life to handle        

but I’ll live it as I can

Every single day here        

is a gift that I have

Better than the option 

six feet below the land

 

If I need a vacation             

just walk down the road                            

a great place there          

based on stories I’ve told

 

There’s a strong hammock     

a hot campfire

Think I can live there        

if things got dire

 

It’s a hard life to handle        

but I’ll live it as I can

Every single day here        

is a gift that I have

Better than the option 

six feet below the land

 

9 -  Just Don’t                   

Don’t touch his stuff        

don’t ring his bell

don’t look him in the eye

Don’t cross his path        

or grace his door

someone here might die

 

Don’t know what you’ll find     

in that place he calls his mind

Don’t know what lingers there    

take a look if you dare

 

Don’t say his name        

don’t speak out loud

don’t let him hear a word

Don’t call his phone        

or listen close

be the last you’ve heard

 

Don’t take a seat            

don’t drink his brew

don’t wonder what you believe

Don’t breathe his air    

or brush his arm

‘cause you’ll never leave  

 

Don’t know what you’ll find     

in that place he calls his mind

Don’t know what lingers there    

take a look if you dare

 

Don’t move an inch        

or leave a trace

don’t leave him any clues

Don’t hesitate                

don’t take a ride

‘cause you’ll pay the dues….

 

Don’t know what you’ll find     

in that place he calls his mind

Don’t know what lingers there    

take a look if you dare

 

Sometimes the world gets thin

which side you living in

it’s times like these                

guys like him move through with ease

 

10 -  He's A Winner

He was born to succeed born to win

it’s in his tree

it’s in his DNA

He did it all on his own

with a loan from his dad

of just a million bucks

 

He’s a leader    

he’s a winner       

it’s all under control

He’ll make us great again    

if we pay the toll      

pay the toll

 

Keeps his models up to date     

on his quest for the         

perfect mate

He’s always working a deal

wonder who he’s working        

on tonight

 

He’s a leader    

he’s a winner       

it’s all under control

He’ll make us great again    

if we pay the toll      

pay the toll

 

He had the drive from the start

It’s in his blood            

it beats his heart

Thinks he should be President

So he can make us all             

win again

 

He’s a leader    

he’s a winner       

it’s all under control

He’ll make us great again    

if we pay the toll      

 

He’s a leader    

he’s a winner       

it’s all under control

He’ll make us great again    

if we pay the toll

11 -  Stones in the River        

Thoughts are clouds              

drifting thru the sky

Fill your head             

no end in sight

Worry day and night          

what does it do?

What you think about       

rarely comes true

 

All this thinking is like        

throwing stones in a river   

Stones in the river don’t mean a thing

    

Thoughts aren’t words          

spoken can tell the truth

Make life hard                

a road that’s not smooth

Easy to focus                

bad thoughts in your mind

You lookclose            

what do you find?

 

All this thinking is like        

throwing stones in a river   

stones in the river  

All this thinking is like        

throwing stones in a river   

Stones in the river don’t mean a thing

    

We all have times            

meant for the past

Play them over            

just make them last

Free your mind                  

float down a stream

You’ll find happiness            

isn’t a dream

 

All this thinking is like        

throwing stones in a river   

Stones in the river don’t mean a thing

 

All this thinking is like        

throwing stones in a river   

Stones in the river don’t mean a thing

All this thinking

all this thinking
