Les paroles

1. TAKE IT BLACK

Early on you were a dreamer
First class non-believer
In all the things they said that
You could never do

Deep down you did the digging
Tied tight all the rigging
Your ship was set to sail
Your seven fantasies

Later on you were a lover
First kiss with another
Chose who you want to be with
Bells in the chapel rung

Soon you got some kids to call your own
Work your fingers to the bone
Dedicate yourself to family
Life runs ahead of you

Take it back, take it back, take your life back

Now you've gone and lost direction
Lost love of detection
Some things are gonna fall apart
Hold your head up again

She may have gone and left you
New job could have killed you
Turns out you act your age now
Try messing up again

Take it back, take it back, take your life back

Take it back
Take it back
Claim your life and take it back

Take it back
Take it back
Claim your life and take it back.


2. DEEP BLUE

You come to me with that smile on your face
That same old look in your eyes
I notice that there's not a hair out of place
Your sweet mouth telling more lies

You tell me it's different and you'll change this time
But the trouble is I've heard it before
You see it's always me in the firing line
I just can't take any more

You're no longer my desire
Your blues are way too deep
You kill the mood and you put out the fire
Your blues are way too deep

You failed to read all the warning signs
Refused to see the red flags
And now I guess you've just run out of time
Blowing the last chance we had

You're no longer my concern
My heart is mine to keep
It seems to me you'll never learn
Your blues are way too deep

You know you suck all the air from a room
Get your friends around to compensate
Too many times they've heard that same old tune
It's more than they appreciate

For seven long years I gave you good advice
Thinking it would make a difference some day
I gave you the goods to make a better life
But you took them all and threw it away

You're no longer my desire
Your blues are way too deep
You kill the mood and you put out the fire
Your blues are way too deep

You're no longer my concern
My heart is mine to keep
It seems to me you'll never learn
Your blues are way too deep.


3. STRANGE HOW THINGS COME BACK AROUND

Strange how things come back around
Same chemistry and there's that sound
Go so high then you float back down
Strange how things come back around

Look towards the rising sun
All that you see comes from the one
Go your own way and I'll go mine
Spirits fly and then combine

Go so high, float back down

Look towards the rising sun
All that you see comes from the one
Go so high then you float back down
Strange how things come back around
Strange how things come back around
Strange how things come back around

Go so high, float back down.


4. BEING ONE

Ocean rising, cities fall
Storm howling, eagles call
Ice melting, rivers flow
Love comes, love goes

Past the point of no return
And still the sun keeps shining on

Man devises, reaps what he sews
Love comes, love goes

Past the point of no return


5. WAY DOWN SOUTH

The funds are low and the debts are high
I need to smile but I have to sigh
So just one kiss before I go
I'll find a place and I'll let you know

I think I see a future way down South
I'll find some time for thinking
They say that life is slower way down South
Where summer spends the winter
Way down South

I'm leaving town and I won't be back
Making moves and I'm making tracks
I don't know quite where I'll end up
Somewhere warm with any luck

I think I see a future way down South
I'll find some time for thinking
They say that life is slower way down South
Where summer spends the winter
Way down South

I think I see a future way down South
I'll find some time for thinking
They say that life is slower way down South
Where summer spends the winter
Way down South
Way down South.


6. TALLY HO !

So you trusted the bankers when they gave you that loan
At a crazy percentage and it cost you your home
Let the fat cats know how you really feel
It's cold in their shadow, hard under their heel

Tally Ho! And so it goes

We have a choice, we can turn this around
Raise up your voices and stand your ground
We'll not be silenced there can be no doubt
They're the insiders we're taking them out

Tally Ho! And so it goes.


7. MARY JANE

You're cruel lover, all take and no give
A bad mother, just let me live

I feel like floating, purged of all pain
Joy and wonder, I'll take you again

You're a mean mean fiddler, you play with my mind
You're a bad bad teacher, making pupils go blind

You're a glimpse of heaven, a trip to the edge
I long to be near you, let's meet on the ledge
Daytime or twilight, darkness and light
Melting quietly, and stay up all night

Mary Jane you're a timeless dream
You're multidimensional, if you know what I mean
You float me up gently, slower than slow
And then I come down like glistening snow

You're a cruel lover, all take and no give
A bad mother, just let me live
Dreaming in ether, too good to be true
Senses run riot, am I me or you?

My heart starts racing, but I'm still in control
Retaining connections, mind body and soul

Mary Jane you lead me through mazes
You always amaze me, you make me go crazy
You show me new places I take giant steps
Like walking a tightrope with no safety net

Mary Jane you're a timeless dream
You're multidimensional, if you know what I mean
You float me up gently, slower than slow
And then I come down like glistening snow.


8. AMERICAN CENTURY

Looking out on a New England town
Thinking on what brought the British down
Thirteen colonies were overrun
Power turning on a book and a gun

Hear the call to arms
(There's a rising up)
End of silence
(The time has come)
Bringing harm to bear their license
End of tyranny
(Take a stand)
Open sympathy
(And they will join with you)
Challenging their reign with violence

Power resting in the hands of a few
Paranoia once again, it's true
Shadows fall across this broken land
Disillusion people understand

Hear the call to arms
(There's a rising up)
End of silence
(The time has come)
Bringing harm to bear their license
End of tyranny
(Take a stand)
Open sympathy
(And they will join with you)
Challenging their reign with violence.


9. BLUE HORIZON

The mindless mind is something to seek
There's nothing to fear and no words to speak
Silence that neither affirms or denies
No verbal expression makes sense of this life

Living with only compassion in mind
No teacher, no leader, a time beyond time
On the road to love everyone will arrive
To the essence of being, the meaning of life

I've got my eyes on the blue horizon
I'm a seeker you see, enlightened and free
I've got my eyes on the blue horizon
I'm a seeker you see, enlightened and free

The mindless mind is something to seek
There's nothing to fear and no words to speak
Silence that neither affirms or denies
No verbal expression makes sense of this life

I've got my eyes on the blue horizon
I'm a seeker you see, enlightened and free
I've got my eyes on the blue horizon
I'm a seeker you see, enlightened and free.


10. ALL THERE IS TO SAY

There's a deep dark place in the heart of us all
Quick praise for the foll
Time and tide wait for no man
The devil finds work for idle hands
They say the meek shall inherit the earth
This is a truth we can all understand

There's an altered state in the heart of your mind
Folks laughing you once maligned
Fortune favours the brave man
Wherever you tread you find shifting sands
Raise a glass to the greater good
You are someone we now understand

You've been a victim, this will go nowhere
The wizard leaves you hanging in mid-air
Time and tide wait for no man
The Devil makes work for idle hands
Empty vessels make the most sound
Your crew on the bridge and they're watching you drown

When I meet my judgement day
And I finally have my say
I'll look for your face in the crowd
Cry that name out loud

We will leave no stone unturned
Old bridges long since burned
Nothing left undone
No song in our hearts unsung.
