NO ONE WEARS A WATCH ANYMORE

The world is full of silhouettes
With paper thin alibis
Integrity falls from grace
Headlines full of lies

No one wears a watch anymore
And everyone is on the fly
The world has turned so dark
Or are these the best of times

The waters are rising
The ghosts start boarding the plane
Captain has one last cigarette
Before he leaves the game

Another concrete needle pierces the sky
A monument to the kings
As the stars collide

How can we find the time
No one wears a watch anymore
How can we make a rhyme
No one wears a watch anymore

You can walk through darkness
To see what you can find
Sometimes you gotta leave
To feel what you left behind

Coral Bells are ringing
Sweet songs of release
I called a porter
to cut my baggage free

How can we find the time
No one wears a watch anymore
How can we make a rhyme
No one wears a watch anymore

HIGHWIRE

It’s a long damn wait but you sit up straight
To hear the news that’s not so great
Then you close your eyes
When they say, we’ll have to see
If we can brew a remedy
Your hope just dies

A long thin line, living life
On a highwire

Wizards ponder your disease
There’s blood to let and charts to read
On a highwire
We both hurt but you own the pain
Cold calculation runs through your veins
Machine heart beats

The sands of time, are so unkind
On a highwire
The state of mind is so resigned
On a highwire

Well I would be as brave as you
A balance bar to help you through
To the other side
Hold on to me and don’t look down
Faith will be our common ground

You Walk through fire
Live your life
On a highwire
You Walk though fire
Live your life
On a highwire

On a highwire
On a highwire

AMERICA (The Saints Come Marching Home)

Reverends and diplomats
Blood on their swords
Rich, fat aristocrats
Above the hungry and poor
America, America
The saints come marching home
The holy ghost is on his knees
Crushed by sticks and stones

Cold blooded murder in the streets of my town
The devils daughter took another good soul down
Her reputation was lost and then found
Hurricane thunder on a federal freight train

Reverends and diplomats
Blood on their swords
Rich, fat aristocrats
Above the hungry and poor
America, America
The saints come marching home
The holy ghost is knees
Crushed by sticks and stones

Big brother stirring up the bones of destruction
You see the drones as they struggle for redemption
Another one led astray by deception
Kicking up dust on the backs of the weak
Kicking up dust on the backs of the weak

Reverends and diplomats
Blood on their swords
Rich, fat aristocrats
Above the hungry and poor
America, America
The saints come marching home
The holy ghost is on his knees
Crushed by sticks and stones

Reverends and diplomats
Blood on their swords
Rich, fat aristocrats
Above the hungry and poor
