Lyrics

1. TROUBLED TIMES

We don't need no burning crosses
Put out the fire of bigotry
We don't need to count our losses
When they bury you, they'll bury me

I have a dream that we can be united
It will only work when fears are subsided
By the sweat of my brow, I won't let it die
Freedom for our hearts is my battle cry

We're living in troubled times
We're living in troubled times
How could we be so blind
We're living in troubled times

Poor man begging at rich man's feet
He ears the crumbs off of the floor
We are starving for something to eat
We are whales upon the shore

There was a time we tore our country down
For all the same reasons that we fight for now
And if pride comes before a fall
Then why tell me why we tore down the wall


2. HIRED GUN

They pay me lots of money for what I do
I'm a dancer midnight romancer under the moon
I'm on the clock, I like to rock,
I don't work the streets
You'll be amazed, your eyes a glazed
When I do my high wire feats

Exterminator, rawhide gangster, I can equal the odds
I pay for your sins with my boyish grin, I create the facade
Steady hand, I'm a gentleman, I've got deadly aim
Womanizer, lone survivor, I like to play the game

Hope you and Jesus have it all worked out
I'm a hired gun

There is no heaven here on earth, love must rule us all
Black days are coming, every prideful man will fall
Have no fear or shed a tear, but there will come a day
When I'm looked in the eye, asked to die, and I hear somebody say

Hope you and Jesus have it all worked out
I'm a hired gun


3. EVER FALLEN IN LOVE

She drives me crazy, makes me belong
I can't take it no more
She gives her best, she gives her all
She picks me up when I fall

She's got a good thing, she's got a special way
She's there when I need her the most
She's really doing fine, she's got a heart to give
She puts me together again

Ever fallen in love, I have
Ever fallen in love, I am

She tells me she's all min, knows how much I need her
I'm blessed to have these feelings again
She makes me the man I am, she's the one I believe in
She holds a key to my heart

Ever fallen in love, I have
Ever fallen in love, I am

Love bears all things, believes all things
Hopes all things, endures all things
Love is patient, love is kind
Love is forgiving, love is blind


4. MOUNTAIN

I see the scars from a mad man's knife
Marks on your wrist where he had you tied
You try and tell me it doesn't mean a thing
I hear the sad songs you're left to sing
You thought you could take it, day after day
You're blessed to be able to still walk away
Your mother told you they were dirty old men
They say if you don't play you can't win

You want love, you need love
There's love on the mountain

His hands were folded as if to pray
But he never had any words to say
He walked beside you then and he left you alone
To face the fear that he places in your soul
Prodigal girl, come in out of the cold
Rest your feet before you explode
Prodigal girl, I know you're hurt
I know what they stole


5. SKI MASK

Let's go out and have some fun
With our ski mask and hand guns
Driving fast cars to the sun
We'll be blind but we'll die young

We were wild when we were young
With our ski mask and hand guns
The law means nothing when you're numb
I bet those handcuffs weighed a ton

Ski mask and hand guns
Lived on the edge lived on the run
With those ski mask and handguns

I never knew love until I met you
Makes me do the things I do
Walking, talking, no use crying
Living, loving, no use dying

There was a time I thought I knew it all
I could walk before I crawled
Jesus crushed my heart of stone
Gave me love I had never known

Don't need no, don't want no


6. EVERYBODY KNOWS MY NAME

Everybody knows my name, everybody wants the fame
Everybody wants to see, everybody wants a piece of me
Everybody wants the fun, everybody sees the gun
Everybody be so kind, still got my piece of mind
Everybody knows my name
Everybody can you feel my pain

I was born a poor boy, left home when I was four
Momma never named me so I never was for sure
I learned to read enough to know life was not so kind
All I own is my guitar and my peace of mind

I went out into the world to find my place in life
I'm learning more every day surviving really bites
They ask me for a line of coke, needles, knives and guns
I said to myself I've fund home cause this place sounds like fun

Everybody knows my name, everybody play the game
Everybody wants the fame, everybody knows my name

I've seen holy rollers, midnight strollers, cops shake with fear
I've seen high heels clicking, red lipstick, blood, sweat and tears
I've read about a man who died on a cross for everybody's sins if you want to make a change you've got to put your faith in him
I've seen the limelight in new your city
I've seen the rainbow in Hollywood walked the streets of London England the streets of gold look so good

I voted for their politicians
I've seen all the dirty religions
I wore their three piece suits
But I did not wear their army boots
I didn't fire the guns of war
Never knew what we were fighting for
Everybody wants the fame
Everybody knows my name


7. YOUNG LOVE

Roxanne Doesn't Think She's Pretty Enough
She Sits Staring Up At THe Sky
Dream About A Life That Could Be
She Throws Her Diary Into The Sea

It Becomes A Very Long Summer
The Careless Nights Of Fantasy Are Over
When You See Her She's White As A Ghost
She Misses The Sun On Her Face The Most

Young Love-Kiss Him Goodbye
Young Love-Don't You Cry
Young Love-It's No Lie
There Is Love Before The Day You Die

She Feels Her Life Has Fallen Apart
I Tried To Tell Her The World Has A Bulletproof Heart
Sometimes The Past Is Hard To Escape
When The Future Is Bent Out Of Shape

Roxanne Doesn't Think She Pretty Enough
She Sits Staring Up At The Sky
She Wears Across Around Her Neck
Got The Words At Her Finger Tip
At The Church She Knelt To Pray
Sweet Lord Jesus Give Me The Strength
She Cried His Name
She Cried His Name


8. KISS THE TRAIN

You always told me, you can't be beat
Thought you had me bound hand and feet
I can see your lies, pain and ecstasy
It's time I take control, love comes quickly

Lay your cards down, you ain't so tough
Is that all you got, I will call your bluff

Kiss the train, I won't do it
Kiss the train, I'd be a fool
Kiss the train, I won't do it
Kiss the train, love will take me through

In my sleep, I could feel the snake
Burning body until it ached
Signed my name in blood, dream of salvation
The morning will come, my love without reservation

This isn't the way out, there's always hope and time
If you wait on the train, you'll go out of your mind


9. CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY

Prisoner of war, prisoner of love, there's a torch to my head
crimes of passion, crimes of youth, stop the ringing in my head
born again, not born at all, the future is full of smoke
born to lead, the need to think, I grab my lungs and I choke

What we take for granted can be taken away and then you ask for more you're still dropping bombs from a plane that went down in the civil war drive the nails, drive them hard, peace turns to war again crown of thorns, crown of peace, political battleship

Crimes against humanity, the dogs are closing in
And when the kingdom comes, it will bring it to an end
Tell me you believe

Let's crown another beauty queen, do you find it so obscene
what about the homeless, the starving, the poor,
no room for the sick cause the rich want more
they lied to us, they lied to them,
breaks my heart inside
took their hope, stole their love,
no life left in their eyes

I stand on this hill and I scream your name
It's something they've tried to erase
Some say nothing lasts forever
We all run the risk of being lost
Some hold on and some never thought to believe

We've got to have bigger guns, we've got to find higher suns
one day you'll see the truth that you've been running from
tell me you believe, I still believe,
I believe in love it's all that we have left


10. SWEET LOUISE

I can still sweet Louise standing there
Like a child she whispers softly to me
She comes to me, I swear, I close my eyes
I still see sweet Louise

I hear the songs she used to sing
Her voice sounds so real to me
Tell me it's not a dream, my heart is strange
Like it used to feel with sweet Louise

Sweet Louise, she's still with me
Even though she's gone
Sweet Louise, she's part of me
She lives in my songs
The door opened and closed
And no one knows
Our secret place
Where memories are safe

No one can move me like she did
No one can touch me like she did
On a rainy night how we cried
I held her and and I kissed her goodbye

I can see you up in heaven looking down at me
Make the dark clouds disappear
There can never be a love so sweet
She left this world without a tear
The door opened and closed I know
We'll be together again
