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

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

It's So Sad 05:04
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

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

Someone New 04:21
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

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

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

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

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
