WAKE ME WHEN IT'S OVER ================= Babe, you know I’m leaving I’m going home I can hear my name called in the light I don’t want you grieving There’s no need for tears Everything will turn out right Revel in the time we had to share Celebrate the memories that you keep The answers to your questions Surely lie above Now it’s time for me to sleep Wake me when it’s over Have a party while I’m growin’ colder And maybe cry into your beer Because you think that I’m not there But... I’ve got a first-class ticket into Paradise And if you love me you will see me, just close your eyes And we will spend eternity In love so endlessly And when the living ends you’ll see It’s never over [instrumental] I’ve got a first-class ticket to the afterlife And we’ll forever be together when it comes your time And we will spend eternity Bathed in love so endlessly ‘Cause when your life is done you’ll see It’s never over

PRAYER FOR PEACE ============ Every mother, every father Every daughter and son Pledges eternal vigilance Until the victory is won Pledges eternal vigilance Until the victory is won Sha-alu Shalom Yirushalayim (pray for the peace of Jerusalem) Halleluja Adonai (praise to God, the Lord) Sha-alu Shalom Yirushalayim Pray for the peace of the City of Peace Cradled in our Nation's Tunnel In darkness as death rains from the sky May the Lord protect us That today we will not die May the Lord protect us That today we will not die Sha-alu Shalom Yirushalayim (pray for the peace of Jerusalem) Halleluja El Shaddai (praise to God, the God of All) Sha-alu Shalom Yirushalayim Pray for the peace of the City of Peace I stand on the West Bank Amid the pain and tears As a rabbi prays for violence I can't believe my ears As a rabbi prays for violence I can't believe my ears May the Lord remind us Not to spill our brothers' blood May the Lord remind us Not to spill our brothers' blood Sha-alu Shalom Yirushalayim (pray for the peace of Jerusalem) Elohim hu ahava (God is love) Sha-alu Shalom Israel Pray for the peace of Israel

POLITICS AND PROMISES ================== Politics and Promises I lie awake each night And think of all the lucky men who died before the fight And those who still are with us Who revel in delight To use our simple apathy to get ahead in life Six a.m.Thursday how late this city sleeps A stray dog chases pigeons up and down the empty streets There the Hyland donor wrenches out his wrinkled hands Counting all his needle marks and wishing they were friends Just up the street, on 23rd and Main There stands an all glass building where our laws are made Transparent to some, mirror-like to most Who cater to the press and wear those fancy clothes [Instrumental break] You can sing me to sleep With your billy club in hand But does the riot become quiet With the silence of just one man? Breathe your words on me Have me lay my weapons down Find a compromise to satisfy The hatred we found. I can take a piece of you You can take a piece of me Someone dies - someone cries Maybe friends or enemies. Brother let me tell you now that your hatred is wack If it's ok to you then you're on the wrong track. [instrumental break] Beside the all glass building there stands a golden steeple A symbol of religion to all god-fearing people People who confuse beliefs and making laws Who bend the system far enough to grease some local palms Yeah, go ahead, does it make you feel better Read a selection from the Good Book's letters Read me the part about love thy neighbor And read me the part about a baby saviour But read for your own how to cast the stones And read for your own how friendship is sown So yeah, go ahead, did it make you feel better Did the baptism take or just make you wetter? [Instrumental break] Broken glass promises In the shadows of the Big House The White House It doesn't matter what louse Is makin' 'em they're fakin' 'em they're takin' 'em they're breakin' 'em they're tellin' us they're savin' us and all the while they're playin' us Six a.m. Thursday how late this city sleeps The politician awakes from his adulterous deceit Political ambition taken from the donor's hands And the promise of reform ain't gonna change his plans (and he's got plans, baby) Politics and Promises I lie awake each night And think of all the lucky men who died before the fight And those who still are with us Who revel in delight To use our simple apathy to get ahead in life

MEMORY OF A FUTURE PAST ======================== I saw the city's silhouette From a distant blinding light Through the trees and clouds The flash was seen For miles throughout the night. And the snow was almost blinding With the water still as glass Reflecting bursts of fire The smoke was sent on higher It happened all too fast. The beauty soon was gone As the shock waves finally came The men began to run From the fury freed from a captive sun Soon followed by the rain. The birds refused to sing at all The streets were filled with death Survivors soon were late The earth had passed away While no one had been blessed. It had only taken moments To fill the skies with pain But now all times has gone And life has done the same Then I awake to realize The visions I have seen Beheld by older eyes Are memories of how things will have been For no one escapes disaster Not the victims, not the master What's the use, there's no excuse When the rain has quit can you live?

THE SQUARE =========== We are the children Of Tiananmen square So little and so much has changed Since our comrades died down there We thought we could cure the world Of a desperate disease We'd find a way to make it work Not just for freedom, but for peace Peace or Freedom The choice is up to you Fear itself often frightens me, too But every battle needs survivors There are some things you should fight for And with courage and with will We can fight for them still! We marched a million strong To parade upon the Square We were sticks and stones against the storm We had nothing to compare Our signs and banners They never stopped a thing But though the cause seems lost right now We will return again in the Spring More than a billion strong! Peace or Freedom The choice is up to you Fear itself often frightens me, too But every battle needs survivors There are some you should fight for And with the courage and with will We can fight for them still!

WHY wmh 2.2.14 Time seems to wave goodbye to the past But what does time hold for a man like me? I’ve little to lose and nothing to gain And all I have now are these memories Lost in a cascade of my dreams From long ago until today The friends I made in my youth Have long since drifted away Why does it have to happen? Why did it happen to us? Why can’t the hour glass let us be? Why can’t the sundial turn to dust? Seems I remember you from just yesterday You must be the friend I knew long ago Aren’t you the one I met as a child? I believe what I believe ‘cause I know I believe what I believe 'cause it's so In years gone by I’ve questioned creation But the answer was as easy as Pi All life’s legacy is a circle We shall all live life and then die Why does it have to happen? Why did it happen to us? Why can’t the hour glass let us be? Why can’t the sundial turn to dust? Seems I remember you from just yesterday You must be the friend I knew long ago Aren’t you the one I met as a child? I believe what I believe ‘cause I know I believe what I believe 'cause it's so

It's an old story... she loves him; he barely knows she exists. She can't get close, but she can't leave either. That's the kind of love a person can only hate. And she's no one to blame but herself. ==== I Hate Myself For Loving You wmh 2.17.14 I hate myself for loving you The way you walk and all you do Let’s just face it and be through ‘cause I hate myself for loving you Every time that you walk by I pray you'll look my way And in some moment catch my eye But once again you turn away As time went by I saw the signs I’m not Ray Charles but I was blind Then in my heart I found a way But that’s old news... [chorus] Was it love? I couldn’t say it never was in any way But facts are facts, and this much is true I hate myself for loving you Come tomorrow the skies will clear From partly cloudy to severe And as the days grow longer I won't fear The end’s in sight... I bounce and crawl from day to day I want to drop these keys and walk away I try to tell you in all I do But it’s another lie... [chorus x2]

Every good lie is anchored in the truth. ==== When Lincoln was a little child His mother built a boat of reeds And sailed him down the river Nile That flows through Mississippi (oh! Mississippi!) A child of Negro slaves Lincoln taught us wrong from right His every photograph Integrated black and white (oh! black and white) A man without precedent He became our 14th President He discovered that slavery was wrong... The Emancipation Proclamation he signed into law Such dedication to a nation no one ever saw He built an army great and strong And he marched them down South to face the pharoah And there was Jefferson Davis On his throne upon the Pyramid And Lincoln said...LET MY PEOPLE GO! Then he built an underground railroad With a shovel he made from a skull And the timbers he split with his hands And the steel of his resolve And Lincoln said...LET MY PEOPLE GO! And there were plagues upon the South And it burned with Sherman's Fire And the conflagration rose It was fueled by Lincoln's ire And the firstborn were devoured By gators from the swamp And Tar Baby, he said nothing. Yeah, Tar Baby, he said nothing! And there in the Dust Bowl Davis was laid low And he bowed his head to Lincoln And he let the people go As they danced into Ford's theater To celebrate the day Lincoln stayed behind and then he quietly stole away And somewhere in the wilderness Stands a cabin made of wood. Yes, right now in the wilderness Stands a cabin made of wood. With a stovepipe hat upon a nail. And a fence made of split rail

Happy Anniversary, My Darling -------------------------------------- Forget the morning, ignore the breaking light All that lies before us transpired in the night We've long been undisturbed by the events that we surround But there's a time for everything and the time for this is now I approach with much conviction, gilded shovel in my hand To open up my heart, just to cover it with sand And with all the things you've told me, the denials and the lies I feel as though your motive is to bury me alive There's a key to all this method, but I keep it safe from harm Along with all the passions that you'd smother in your arms There's a cold and lonely winter contained within your heart Made into breathless summer when we have been apart To preserve our endless love We tore our lives asunder In the wisdom we've been offered Absence makes the heart grow fonder And so we had to sever The passion from the pain The discord from the rapture The spirit from the frame But Darling, true love never dies... And Darling I will love you 'til the end And Darling, when this night of love is through I will bury you again. I will bury you... Again.

We got one cart, one horse in this podunk town, one job to do, the kind that beats you down but you ain't gonna find me hangin' 'round 'cause I'm not the kind for that, you'll find I'm not gonna spend my whole life at the mill wonderin' and waitin' and wasting until I am old and I'm grey and I'm too tired to care like everybody else workin' shift down there but I'll be a doctor, a lawyer, a cop 'cause nothing can stop me from reaching the top; an ambitious young man... with a head full of dreams. I've got... one girl, one heart, one love to bind me to Heaven on Earth, one chance to find the man inside me she needs but I'm not blind 'cause there's still time for her to find I'm not gonna spend my whole life at the mill wonderin' and waitin' and wasting until I am old and I'm grey and I'm too tired to care like everybody else workin' shift down there but my family needs food and a roof o'er their heads so I'll put off my dreams for a new day ahead A responsible man... has no time for dreams. [instrumental break. Time passes] And the candles on top of my cake Spread like wildfire year after year And the bills and tuition have made it their mission To keep me imprisoned right here. I've got one life to live, just a day at a time one ankle chained to the daily grind, cause you've got to sacrifice, but no one explained you've gotta throw the dice with the rice, and now I have spent my whole life at the mill wonderin' and waitin' and wasting until I am old and I'm grey and I'm too tired to care like everybody else workin' shift down here and I think back to the youth that I'd wasted away and I know that it's time that I called it a day 'cause a man past his prime has no time for dreams. And the candles on top of my cake burn with bonfire brightness this year And my sons and my daughters and all the grands are crowded around me so near; and as I look upon them my heart nearly stops There they are; the doctor, the lawyer, the cop And I wonder that I've been so blind that I never could see... All of the dreams that I ever had have come home to say to me, "We love you, Dad." Not too bad... for a man... with no time for dreams. Not too bad for a man with no time for dreams.

Day After Day Deep in my heart where your memory lies There's a handful of dreams of a summer gone by And we're a long, long way away from that warm night in July It's like yesterday is pulling me back to your side [CHORUS] Day after day we build castles in the sand Night after night the tide comes rushing in Flags that flew on high are knocked down by the wind Until we pick them up and build it all again Often things we love become things we revile So despite our love we split for a while My heart was standing still as my soul was standing trial Hoping to recall -- why did we walk down the aisle? [REPEAT CHORUS] Here on the strand, years drifted away Now here we stand with nothing to say You hold out your hand... who needs talk anyway? And we pretend it was all just a long midsummer day [REPEAT CHORUS] ...We'll build it all again.
