1. HATE

It's easy to ridicule somebody else's messes
It's easy to blame and sacrifice
It's easy to immunize and kill your many pressures
It's easy to do it and it's nice

It's easy to lust, objectify and crave for better
It's easy to kick and punch and take
It's easy to walk away, give up and say I'm better
It's easy to maim and hurt and fake

It's so easy
It's easy
To hate
To hate

It's easy to be on stage alone and feel indifferent
It's easy to lie, deny and ache
It's easy to live, especially when you're living
It's easy to want a big mistake

It's so easy
It's easy
To hate
To hate

It's easy to preach when you're immersed in self and anger
It's easy to throw away a life
It's easy to terrify all that you think you covet
It's easy to cut without a knife

It's so easy
It's easy
To hate


2. CHILDREN KILLING CHILDREN

A light in the eyes, and
A smile on the face, Oh
The innocence blows one away

God bless all the laughter
The children's dear laughter
It's something so special, so gay

When they fall down
I feel sad
They're falling down
Real, real bad

Children killing children
What's this all about
Children killing children
What's this all about

I almost denied it
The fact that they're dying
And seeking approval each day

What absolute chaos
When babies are murdered
By bullets that just went astray

When they fall down
I feel sad
They're falling down
Real, real bad

Children killing children
What's this all about
Children killing children
What's this all about

When they fall down
I feel sad
They're falling down
Real, real bad

Children killing children
What's this all about


3. GROWTH

Near a lake
Compelled, I made a start
The kind that comes when feeling torn apart
I daren't believe it
Drained through holes, just like you and me
Past the words of insincerity
I daren't believe it
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I just didn't want to believe it
But the truths let me in
Yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

Lift me up
Lift me up
Take me down to where the calm is
Where my lies deny the light is
Lift me up
Lift me up
Past the years and years of feeding

My distortions and my bleeding
'Cause I daren't believe it
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I just didn't want to believe it
But the truths let me in
Truths let me in
Yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

I said I daren't believe it
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I just didn't want to believe it
But the truths let me in
Let me in yeh
Yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh yeh

Growing up, I feared the boy
And who he was, I just ignored him
Weightless eyes, it's come to this
I have to trust what's healthy for him
Oh dear, is that my tear

Growing up, I watched the boy
He turned to freedoms that could numb forever
Then a kiss, a final kiss
Gave closure to what was
In not one minute
Oh my, home from the big lie

An imminent clear passage
Sends a chill into my back
And what's more threatening now
Is that there's no way to turn back
I, friend of mine, friend of mine
Don't know what to say, time out, time out
Don't know where we can go from here, Love
I'm friend of mine, friend of mine
Finally meeting you, time out, time out
Don't know where we go from here, love
O.K
O.K

When I was a child,
I heard you calling
When I was a child,
I took the heat
I heard you calling
But I couldn't stand up
On my two feet
And I kept watching you
I was watching you
And I'd follow all the things
You'd have to do
Yes all the time
I kept hearing you
I was hearing you
And I really liked an awful lot of you
Most of the time

And now I've learned
That when I'm ready to trust
I'll let you know
I said when I feel like I am ready to trust
I'll let you know


4. WHEN I WAS A CHILD

Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, see if you understand
Troubled and hardened there's safety in rage
So when I was a child I kept building a cage

Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, can you see who I am

I felt love fragment heartache
In my body as a child
Oh yeah and I remember
Being taught to not run wild

What about all those promises
And the failures to proceed
And I seem to recall now
My own hunger and your greed

Look in my eyes and you see who I am
Look in my eyes see if you understand
With complex compassion, I've tried to stay near
But when you found wrong I would never appear

Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, can you see who I am

When I searched for the father
And the son and the holy ghost
I felt blows from my neighbors
Who were lost and hurt me most

For the millions of children
The Sao Paulos everywhere
I've remembered who I am
I'm a child who wants to share

Look in my eyes, can you see who I am
Look in my eyes, see if you understand
Troubled and hardened there's safety in rage
So when I was a child I kept building a cage

Look in my eyes, can you see who I am


5. PLEASE HELP MOMMY (SHE'S A JUNKIE)

Please help
Please help, ooh
Please help
Please help mommy she's a junkie, yeh
Say it one more time
I said please help
Please help, ooh

The mother, the mother, the mother

Momma throws all her love away
She's dropped the ball on everything
Momma just breathes from day to day
She's dropped the ball on everything

All she ever really wanted was her life, her life
With just a little bit of icing on the cake
All she ever really wanted was her life, her life
With just a little bit of love and give and take

Get behind this
There ain't no love anymore
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my
There ain't no love anymore
She's dead inside it's for sure

Please help mommy she's a junkie, yeh

Please help mommy she's a junkie, yeh


6. SHINE

I light my cigarette
Oh no, I ain't quit yet
I ponder for a while
And then begin to smile

I might not get well
I might not seek help
I'm only human after all
Oh what a poor excuse
But one I can always use
When I can't imagine growth at all

At the watershed
Non-wrong watershed
I lie bathing in my itsy bitsy bitsy life
I say thanks and then
Feel indifferent and
Keep on basking in my itsy bitsy bitsy life
My itsy bitsy bitsy life,
My itsy bitsy bitsy life, my itsy bitsy bitsy life

Find
Love
And
Shine
Shine

I might not get well
I might not seek help
I'm only human after all
Oh what a poor excuse
But one I can always use
When I can't imagine growth at all

At the watershed
Non-wrong watershed
I lie bathing in my itsy bitsy bitsy life
I say thanks and then
Feel indifferent and
Keep on basking in my itsy bitsy bitsy life
My itsy bitsy bitsy life,
My itsy bitsy bitsy life, my itsy bitsy bitsy life

Find
Love
And
Shine
Shine


7. STEP LIGHTLY

Sit quietly
After dark
Sit quietly
When it's dark
The air is clean, it heals the lungs
The moon is full, and forest songs
Heard only at this time of night
Just seems to make it all feel right

Step lightly
On the grass
Step lightly
In the grass
In green fields with a breeze that plays
With leaves that seek a resting place
A clay pot holds sweet water clear
There is no thirst or chaos here

I'm not so tired
So very tired

Put down the tow line
The toil and sweat is done today
You get your food
You get your life
You get your food
You get your life

Deep in the furrows
The aching soul has earned it's pay
You get your food
You get your life
You get your food
You get your life

Resting a while it's so nice here
Oh yes it helps to make things clear
So clear

Get easy
When you can
Get easy
If you can
The back is cracked and feels so straight
This is a time to celebrate
With no more debts to pay today
The touch, the smell, the taste can play

I'm not so tired
But more inspired

Put down the tow line
The toil and sweat is done today
You get your food
You get your life
You get your food
You get your life

Deep in the furrows
The aching soul has earned it's pay
You get your food
You get your life
You get your food
You get your life

Resting a while it's so nice here
Oh yes it helps to make things clear
So clear
Resting a while it's so nice here
Oh yes it helps to make things very clear
So clear


8. LOVE AND INNOCENCE

(Instrumental)


9. ANIMALS

In a meadow of grass and golden light
A noble is born to fall in flight
While the slaughter to feed just grows and grows
Where's the pity for those who serve our souls

Animal animal run away
Animal animal don't delay

Oh what a shame
Savour the blood and guts of it all
Ball and chain
Over and over again

With the wind at your back on rainy nights
Do you ever give thanks and say alright
For the leather that's warmed the self esteem
While the humble and dumb provide the screams

Animal animal run away
Animal animal don't delay

Oh what a shame
Wearing the cuts and the bruise of it all
Ball and chain
Over and over again


10. NIGHTHAWKS STARS AND PINES

Well all that I know
It takes a cold heart, cold heart
To tear things apart
And turn something into nothing, nothing

It's been so hard, hard
To love the cold heart, cold heart
That tore things apart
And turned something into nothing, nothing

Ain't that the way it goes
Ain't that the way it goes
It always seems to go
It always seems to go
Into nothing, nothing

Well all that I know
It may take a while, a while
To let yourself smile
After something, turns to nothing, nothing

All the heartaches, heartaches
Come up with the sun, the sun
So mangled and done, so done
Because something turned to nothing, nothing

Ain't that the way it goes
Ain't that the way it goes
It always seems to go
It always seems to go
Into nothing, nothing


11. TRY LIFE

Try life
I heard try life
Seeds sown
To seek the unknown
What a reason
What a reason chasing me

I stayed hanging onto a life
That threatened to destroy
I knew it and it didn't even care
Help me from this was whispered in the dark
I knew that I'd got lost
But that life never listened it just laughed

When I got lonely
Ooh I got lonely
I'd ask it, I'd ask it connect me up, yeah yeah
And when I was dying
I thought I was dying
I'd ask it, I'd ask it to bring me 'round, yeah yeah

When hungry I would feed myself
To me and in that self made hell
I'd cry out
I'd cry out

That's when I heard try life
I heard try life
Real life
A whole life
What a reason
What a reason chasing me


12. WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS

Are you doing alright
Do you feel very well
Are there things in your life you've always wanted
Like respect, prestige and so on
Can you tell

Working so hard
For the things that you want
But lose anyway
Isn't it sad that the things that we have
We lose anyway

Any day now
It's gonna come
Any day now
Hold on
Hold on hold on hold on
Hold on
Hold on hold on hold on

When the bough breaks
When the bough breaks
You really know it
Yeah you really know it
You really know it
Yeah you really know know know know know know know

When the bough breaks
When the bough breaks
You really know it
You really know it know it know it
You really know when you're there
'Cause you're there
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Have you ever counted just
How many times you've traveled to tomorrow
Seeing this, discounting that
And thinking how great it will be once in tomorrow

Can you reach out with your waiting arms
And meet a man who loves broken hearts
Hello

What about dreams
Have you had many dreams
Do they float away
Shivering slightly to know how it is
Is there loss hey hey

Any day now
It's gonna come
Any day now
Hold on
Hold on hold on hold on
Hold on
Hold on hold on hold on

When the bough breaks
When the bough breaks
You really know it
You really know it know it
You really know it
Know know know know know know know

When the bough breaks
When the bough breaks
You really know it
You really know it know it know it
You really know when you're there
'Cause you're there
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Have you ever counted just
How many times we travel to tomorrow
Seeing this, discounting that
And thinking how great it will be once in tomorrow

Can you reach out with your waiting arms
And meet a man who loves broken hearts
Hello
Can you reach out with your waiting arms
And meet a man who loves broken hearts
Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello baby
Hello
Hello darling
