Track Name: A Different Kind Of Light
I heard about the light of progress
I could never see that far
Couldn't find the light of success
Must've had a change of address
I don't care what the people say
There's got to be a better way
Don't want the usual merchandise
Recycled in a new disguise

I took a shot at meditation
I tried it like the old book said
All I got was more frustation
Must've had the wrong translation
I don't care what the people say
There's got to be a better way
Don't want the usual merchandise
Recycle in a new disguise

I'm following a different Light
A different kind of light
A different kind of light

They talk about a light inside you
I hope I never get that blind
I don't want to take my chances
On joining the collective unconscious
I'm waiting for the clouds to break
I'm looking for the road to take
Don't want the usual merchandise
Recycled in a new disguise
Track Name: How Can You Love
She's so pretty
Guys desire her instantly
They call it love at first sight
She's a sampler
And she's tasted lots of loves
In search of Mr. Right
She's really quite frantic
For someone romantic
Selah
Someone to adore her
Someone who won't bore her
Selah

He's a lover
And he loves her pretty good
But he doesn't want strings
She believed him
When he said their love was real
And they didn't need rings
So she satisfied him
She never denied him
Selah
But she wound up alone
Now she's back by the phone
Selah

How can you love
If you haven't got love in your heart
You're more or less playing a part
How can you love if you only want
Love in return
Turn around
To the Author of love

She's heard stories
About the fairy tale end
And the dream-come-true
So she studies
Paperbacks and magazines
To tell her what to do
What's a girl to do
Track Name: It's So Sad
Morning after morning
Day after day
Life goes on
In the same old way
No variation
Or so it seems
Sometimes we realize
Our nightmares
Not our dreams

It's sad
It's so sad
When someone says they
Found The Answer
You tell him you're
Not really doing
That bad

Trying to buy heaven
Right here on earth
The cost will always end up
More than it's worth
You ponder living
You wonder why
No matter what you do
You're still going to die

Chorus

Guilt is in your conscience
Pain in your soul
Feel's like you're falling
Down a deep dark hole
You drink good whiskey
You smoke good pot
Twenty more years
What in hell have you got
Track Name: Falling Down A Hole
Kundoalini
Gives me a headache
Edgar Mitchell
Is stretching his brainwaves
Buddha and Mohammed
Are still lying from their graves

Eat the candy
(spiritualism)
Wear the blinders
(solipsism)
What's it matter, anyway?
(fatalism)

Got a feeling
Like you're falling down a hole

Fence riders
You're running out of time
Backsliders
Start towing the line
Sister Carter
Make up your mind

Humanism
Is a tired old line
The logos is sleeping
Just give it some time
Evolution is preaching
"From monkey to divine"

Chorus

Angels on assignment
Spiritual Misalignment
No true deliverance
Pray for forgiveness
Chains and bonds

Holistic movement
Occultic solvents
Divination
Psychic sensation
Babble on
It's mystery babylon
Track Name: Someone New
Guess I better come clean
I was lying through my teeth
You know that I was getting
Downright mean
And you heard about enough
Excuses from me
To fill a magazine
It was getting hard to sleep
Cuz my talk was only cheap
But you're gonna be surprised
To find me talking like I'm
Someone new

Was looking oh so cool
But I done enough crying
All alone to fill a
King-size pool
Guess I had to find out
The hard way baby
I was someone's fool
It was getting hard to sleep
Cuz my heart was on the street
But you're gonna be surprised
To find me looking like I'm
Someone new cuz baby

Someone new got ahold of me
Someone new took control for me
And what I blew
It won't be held against me
Someone new is looking out for me
Someone who's got real love for me
But what's it to you
Are you gonna be the last to know
Are you gonna be the last to know

You think you're gonna be good
You think you're gonna try and
Save the world
Like some modern-day Robin Hood
Guess you're gonna find out
The hard way, babe
There's only One that could
It's getting too late to sleep
Why don't you come in off that street
And you're gonna be surprised
When you find out you can be
Someone new too cuz baby

Someone new could take care of you
Someone who's got real love for you
It's up to you what you gonna do yeh
Someone new looking out for you
Someone who's got real love for you
But what's it to you
Are you gonna be the last to know
You don't want to be the last to know
You could be someone new
Track Name: Renaissance Man
He's the high priest of the future
Controlled experiments are his specialty
Sewing up questions with mental sutures
Trying to make some sense out of reality

A renaissance man
Tearing himself from The Rock
A renaissance man
Tearing himself from The Rock

It's from "star stuff" that he's made
It's the cosmos that gave him life
How does that help him feed the poor
How does that help him love his wife

Chorus

He's cast away all thoughts of heaven
His science is full of preconceptions
His answers make me ask more questions
How many can wait on evolution

Chorus

He needs to live
On the sides of the north
In the city of Reformation
That's where he'll find his life
Track Name: Ping Pong Over The Abyss
Wouldn't it couldn't it
Shouldn't it be nice
To be in love
Wouldn't it couldn't it
Shouldn't it be nice
To be above
All of the pain
And frustration of being alone
Nobody nobody nobody likes
To be chilled to the bone

You been trying
You been trying maybe
To find that one missing part
You been tring and trying baby
But you can't seem to melt
Your own heart
You heard lies and believed them
Until you cannot learn a thing
But late at ight
When you're all alone
You can still hear our ears ring

I can't help but sigh
When you try to deny
Every why
With a lie
That may fry
You in hell
Forever

You don't need to die
And that's the reason why
I'm looking in your eye
And telling you
That it's now
Or never

Turn back
From the way you been living
Give back
Everything you've been given
Walk back
To the Lord and you'll be forgiven

Fall back
To your knees in praying
Look back
To the word He was saying
Get back
On your feet get up from
Where you been laying
Track Name: Time Is Slipping Away
Today you may be young and free
But tomorrow's never guaranteed
What's seventy years
Compared to eternity

You say nobody's gonna run your life
But you could lose it any day or night
Where will you be
When they turn out the light

Look at me
Look at someone who struggled
Someone who struggled for years
Look at me
Look at someone who struggled
Are you gonna waste the same tears

Time is slipping away
This could be your last day
Time is slipping away

You tell me that you don't got time
And then you work and slave for every dime
Just to get things
You know that you'll one day either lose
Or leave behind

You say you don't believe in fairy tales
But you keep looking for some holy grail
The cup that you need
Is made out of thorns and nails

Look at me
Look at someone with something
Someone with something that's real
You tell me
Are you someone with something you know
Or something you feel

Time is slipping away
Heaven's holding open its gates
Don't hold back because you're afraid
Someone's helping you
Someone's holding your hand today
What's gonna stand in your way

Track Name: Denomination Blues (That's All) [Live]
Some people preaching
They do very well
They take all your money
And you can go to hell
And that's all
That's all
When you could have Jesus
And that's all

You can go to your college
You can go to your school
If you ain't got Jesus
You're just an educated fool
And that's all
That's all
You gotta have Jesus now
And that's all

If you pardon me sir
You ain't doin' too well
You spend your whole life sinning
And you're going to hell
And that's all
But that ain't all
Cuz you could have Jesus now
And that's all

It's good to stand together
It's bad to stand apart
The only ones going to heaven
Are the pure in heart
And that's all
That's all
You better get Jesus now
And that's all

Jesus is coming back on the dividing day
Taking in the sheep
Turning the goats away
That'll be all now
That'll be all
You better take Jesus now
And that's all
