Society's Child

Come to my door, baby
Face is clean and shining black as night
Mama went to answer you know
Said you looked so fine
Now I can understand your tears and your pain
She called you girl instead of your name
When she wouldn't let you inside
When she turned and said
"But honey, she's not our kind"

She says I can't see you anymore, baby
Can't see you anymore

Walk me down to school, baby
People acting like they're deaf and blind
'Til they turn and say
"Why don't you stick to your own kind"
My teachers laugh, their smirking stares
Cutting deep down in our affairs
Preachers of equality
They said believe it
Then why won't they just let us be?

She said I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore

One of these days I'm gonna stop my listening
Gonna raise my head up high
One of these days I'm gonna spread
My glistening wings and fly
But that day will have to wait for a while
Baby, I'm only society's child
When we're older, things may change
But for now that's the way they must remain

I say I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore
I can't see you anymore, baby
I can't see you anymore

Love Really Changed Me

Turning around, coming up from the town
In which you found me
Filled with delusions and self-persecutions around me
Somebody got to say hello (I need somebody)
Somebody wanted me to know that you wanted to be what Iím needing and
Love really changed me
Love really changed me

So be gone all the wrong
??????? desire for me
I belong to a wiser man inside of me
We love another
Really ???? like me

Racing the feet
Howís the man that is weak getting stature?
Chasing a rainbow
How few really see that they catch her
Somebody took my fear from me (I need somebody)
Somebody showed me just how free I could be
Iím in sea of tranquility
Love really changed me
Love really changed me

Take meÖ

Here I Lived So Well


Somebody broke the garden gate
The insect fighter came too late
The foot that set upon the door
Have turned the raven's "evermore" (???)

And here I lived so well before it died

The flower blooming every day
Has let the weeds come out to play
The gables reaching for the sky
Just sit on top and don't know why

And here I lived so well before it died
It died...it died

The tree that used to hold a swing
Can barely hold the lettering
Describing what the property can be

So this one (unwanted???) plot (???)
Soon to be erected on the spot -
A seven storey parking lot

And here it lived so well before I died

Ohh..someone broke the garden gate
Ohh..insect fighter came too late
Ohh..?????????????? (???)
Ohh..close that garden gate

Too Much Of Nothing

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Too much of nothing
Can make a man feel ill at ease
One man's temper might rise
While another man's temper might freeze

In the day of confession
We cannot mock a soul
When there's too much of nothing
No one has control

Too much of nothing
Can make a man abuse a king
He can walk the streets and scream
But he wouldn't know a thing

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

Say hello to Valerie
Say hello to Vivian
Send them all my salary
On the waters of oblivion

It's all been done before
It's all been written in the book
But when there's too much of nothing
Nobody should look

Too much of nothing
Can turn a man into a liar
It can cause one man to sleep on nails
And another man to eat fire

Ev'rybody's doin' somethin'
I heard it all in a dream
When there's too much of nothing
It makes a fella mean

Too much of nothin', Too much of nothing, makes a fella mean
Too much of nothin', Too much of nothing,
Too much of nothin', Too much of nothing,

Sunshine Help Me

???
crazy dreams and mind-blowing schemes will get you
yeah yeah yeah

Peopleís talking about the hawk
Trippin' round a clock around the block
Turn your mind if youíre the kind
Then get your mind, turned easy
Turn your mind if youíre the kind
Get your mind, turned easy


CHORUS

Sunshine help me
Sunshine help me
Take this haze away
Sunshine help me

Sunshine help me
Sunshine help me
Take this haze away
Sunshine help me

Coloured pictures on the wall
Of things you never thought you saw
Really saw before, yeah yeah yeah
Sleep in dreams like in seams
Of eagles who youíve never seen
It will turn you
Will open doors
A better house with slim walls


CHORUS

It's All About Roundabout

It's all about a roundabout
Some swinging in, some swinging out
Some just slip and fall
Some don't swing at all.

Ain't you feelin' better, gettin' it together
Speeding off to bed, floatin' like a feather
You finally worked it out, you follow what it's all about

It's all about a roundabout
Some swinging in, some swinging out
Some just slip and fall
Some don't swing at all.

Ain't you feelin' better, gettin' it together
Running to and from, floatin' like a feather
Finally you see how it's got to be

Ain't you feelin' better, floatin' like a feather
Racing off to bed, gettin' it together
Finally you see how it's got to be
It's just you and me, swinging from a tree
Digging what we see, feelin' crisp(?) and free
In security, totally carefree, that's the way to be (...fading)

Tobacco Road

I was born in a dump
Mama died and my daddy got drunk
He left me there to die or grow
In this place called Tobacco Road

I grew up in a rusty shack
All I own was hangin' on my back
Lord knows how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road

But it's home, yeah
The only life that I've ever known
I used to livin' that way, baby, and it's price of you
But I Love you 'cause you're my own

I'm gonna leave get a job
With the help and grace from above
Save my money get rich I know
In this place called Tobacco Road

Bring Dynamite and a crane
Blow it up and start all over again
Build a town I'll be proud to show
And keep the name of Tobacco Road

But it's home
The only life that I've ever known
I used to livin' that way, and it's price of you
But I Love you 'cause you're my own

Tobacco Road, Tobacco Road, Tobacco Road

It Hurts You So

Take a longing for the someone
To fill an empty space inside
Add moments of infatuation
Together with an empty pride

You play hide-and-seek upon the wall
While your heart is bouncing like a ball
And you think youíve finally found it all
But you didnít know
The gloom is taking away the glow

And it hurts you so
It hurts you so
And it hurts you so
It hurts you so
And it hurts you so
Lord, how it hurts you so

Itís my way of thinking (my wayÖthinking)
Is it right or is it wrong? (Is it wrong?)
But life has no color (LifeÖcolor)
No flavor, no soul
Ah-h-h-h

After having more than taste it
What regret for years that wasted
Youíve come from deep inside the row
And leave behind your empty show

So you tell yourself youíre not to blame
And that everything is still the same
Thereís another face, another name
But you cry, you cry for the loneliness deep inside

And it hurts you so
It hurts you so
And it hurts you so
It hurts you so
And it hurts you so
Lord, how it hurts you so
And it hurts you so
It hurts you so
Lord, how it hurts you so
Oh, it hurts you so
And it hurts you so
Oh, it hurts you so

Forget It, I've Got It

Have you sick of loving?
Thatís quite all right
You try to kick affection
With all your mind
I heard it, did you in, girl?
It wasnít right
And all because of him, girl
??????????????

But if you want some loving
So hold it so tight
Forget it, Iíve got it
So get it wide and get it right
And if you need somebody
To love you tonight
Come on, step in my direction
Girl, Iím hungry for affection

I will give you loving
And more than that
You know my loving
Is where itís at
And where itís at, girl,
Is here with me
Thatís a fact, girl
I guarantee

And if you want some loving
So hold it so tight
Forget it, Iíve got it
So get it wide and get it right
And if you need somebody
To love you tonight
Come on, step in my direction
Girl, Iím hungry for affection
Get up and get together
Forever

Forget it, Iíve got it
So get it wide and get it right
Repeat to fade

Bubbles

Watching pretty bubbles
Giving pleasure to the young
Watching as they popping
Disappearing, lot of fun
Itís only soapy water
Giving bubbles to your eyes
When they disappear
Lots of children watch it fly

This windy feeling falling round me
See them whirl
This windy feeling falling round me
And I know (Finally discover what it means to be brother
Or love for each other we can find in the mind of the young)
