Rock N Roll
A hard mind is a bad disposition
High time, my vinyl was the medicine
Feeling alright, now time to show
You can hold it tight a while or you can let it go

You've been hiding all these years, and now you gonna let it show
I'm tired of your screaming, and now I wanna rock n roll

Told right, but you still can't make up your mind
With a chip on your shoulder you tell older, you politely decline
You can't prowl with your feet flying up in the air
You can't twist and shout with sour lemons in your mouth

You've been hiding all these years, and now it's time to let it show
Said I'm tired of your screaming, and now we gonna rock n roll

Crumbling Down
The cards are on the table
The writings on the wall
When you hide behind a lie and want forgiveness, it don't mean anything at all

So you're finding out the hard way
Sometimes these things take time
But don't you preach salvation from the bottom of a bottle when you can't walk a straight line

Should we talk about it now?

It hurt for the first time but it's the last time it's comin' 'round
Do you think there's the world in your pocket, or are you watching it come crumbling down?

You can chalk it up as bad luck
Place the blame on me and then cry foul
I can't understand those wicked words you're speaking with that silver spoon in your mouth

And you want to talk about it now?

10 Years
10 years gone by since I left a place called home
You see, I had a dream and it almost washed away like rain
Take time, draw a line to where you wanna go
You got to mainline some love and a little soul

You talk about what it means to me...well, keep talking
Don't you know it's what I wanted to be...and I'm coming

Hey child. Go take all the things you believe in and tell all your friends that you're leaving
Hey child. You got to give it all that you got.
You got to get away

Freight train coming, won't you take me away from here
You see, I'm tired and I'm looking for a change of scene
Be kind, but don't compromise no matter what they say
You got to try to do right, and make your own way

You talk about what it means to me...keep talking
Don't you know it's what I wanted to be...and I'm coming

Hey child. Go take all the things you believe in and tell all your friends that you're leaving
Hey child. You got to give it all that you got.
You got to get away

10 years gone by, and I feel a little old
You see, I had a dream and it almost washed away

Millington Station
I'm on the corner at Millington Station
People come, people go, with their building frustration
They say, "I've got my house and my new car, and my money is tight"
I've got a dollar in my pocket and I'm alright

Brick by brick.
Line by line
Until there's nothing left to build
We say, "We would tear it down if we could forgive"
Millington Station

I'm on the corner at Millington Station
People come around me and look for confrontation
They say, "You can't do this," "You can't do that," and "We don't like your long-haired type"
I've got to keep on keeping on cause I'm alright

Sometimes all these faces make me want to scream

Revolution
Open your mind
I've seen lights, now I want some action
You better think twice, before it's gone
Stand up if you wanna grow
Stand up if you want to let it go

Cause we can start a revolution

Change is gonna take time, but I'm inclined to find satisfaction
Give it to me right, not wrong
Stand up if you wanna know,
Stand up if you wanna let it show

Cause we can start a revolution

We can start a revolution
I said, we can start a revolution
I said, we can start a revolution
We can start a revolution
RIGHT NOW

Give You My Lovin
If you're feeling alright,
You can always show me
If you really want it
It won't be wise to disguise your motivation when you could be satisfied
So tell me your lies or your acts of contrition, but my intention is understood
You got me itchin'
I wanna cook in your kitchen
It's alright if we set this room a light
And I'll give you my lovin'
I'll give you my lovin' again

My head is aching from the bottle that you're shaking
So dance like you want it
I don't mean to fight
I wanna make it right by you, and my conviction is very good
You got me thinkin'
I should confirm my suspicion
It's alright if you lay me down
And I'll give you my lovin'
I'll give you my lovin' again

And the night is just a little bit older
I really need your love
Would you be inclined if I were to show you
I really need your love

Back For More
Sweet little sister in a hard situation, trying to find her way in the world
You got a pretty nice smile but a bad reputation
You don't have to hide it, but you really should
There were lines on the table and bodies on the floor
And she was back for more
She was certified wild when she was born

Fooled by the lie by a silver-tongued woman, but I wouldn't walk away if I could
You got a dirty little secret but a good vibration
You shouldn't have to fight it if it makes you feel good
They would hang from the ceiling and climb on the wall
And she was back for more
She was certified wild when she was born

Had Enough
She's like - putting your fingers on a live wire
She's like - staring down the barrel of a gun
Little Bo-peep with a Jezebel smile
I try to crawl away but then I want some

I can't talk about the things I've been hearing
And it worries me just way too much
You should be home instead of out there misbehaving
And this time I've had enough

She's like - taking a hit for an addiction
She's like - sugar in every kiss
An angel or a permanent affliction
You couldn't understand unless you had a girl like this

I can't talk about the things I've been hearing
And it worries me just way too much
You should be home instead of out there entertaining

And this time I've had enough I've had enough

Better Off Dead
There's a man on the roadside
Standing on a picket line
Stomping on the pavement
Screaming 'bout the government

A boy from the East Side
Dreams about the big time
Working for a paycheck
Reading Jack Kerouac

And it's hard when you're an angel in this city
When you're out on the front line trying to stay alive
But maybe we'd be better off dead

A girl in a red dress
She's got long hair that's a mess
She was 18 and naive
Now she's got a kid to feed

And she wants to find a knew way
But the color of her dress starts to feel like gray
And she fades away

And it's hard when you're an angel in this city
When you're out on the front line trying to stay alive
But maybe we'd be better off dead

Sometimes I feel like I'm on a carousel
And I feel like hell
It goes on and on and round and round
And sometimes I feel alone

Divided
We said these days would last until the end of time
But memories are left and those days are left behind
And people grow apart, they do what they must do
And that's alright, but I miss you

And you're leaving
And as you said goodbye,
You turned around and you told me

I wanna believe in you, but that's just wasting time, my friend
We're eye to eye but minds divided
You turned your back on me, you've taken all I trusted in
We're eye to eye but minds divided

We said our love would last until the end of time
But time has flown right past, and it seems that love went blind
I know we had to part, we do what we must do
And that's alright, but I miss you

And she's leaving
And as she waived goodbye,
She turned around and she told me

I wanna believe in you, but that's just wasting time, my friend
We're eye to eye but minds divided
You turned your back on me, you've taken all I trusted in
We're eye to eye but minds divided

As I look back on me, it isn't what they said it'd be
We're eye to eye but minds divided
And though you're far from me, you'll always be a part of me
We're eye to eye but hearts divided

I wanna believe

What You Give
Rewind, back to the beginning,
Cause we're miles away from the start
Far and wide, and still we're searching
But we can't find our way through the dark

Were you sad that you missed the sweet moment
While all that time, you were right there
Movin' on, and still you're talking
So unaware of the beauty around you

But it would be better if you smiled sometimes, instead of crying
You get what you give out
So give it all you've got
And let it sing

Are you having the time of your life?
Because precious time will fly by
And it flows to no ending
It's the sum, not the single part

But it would be better if you smiled sometimes, instead of crying
You get what you give out
So give it all you've got
And let it sing

It's not the things you take
It's the love you make
It's what you give
There And Back Again All For One Beggars And Thieves XII
