Track Name: Scarecrow
I was singing on the street the other day
Trying to make a living my own way
People walking by me all the time
And i would do my best to give them something of mine

I saw a man so angry dressed in blue
He had a weird tone when he said hey you
You are not allowed to play here anymore
I ll tell you what to do i serve the law

How do you do those things that you do
Don’t you feel dead inside
How do you do those things that you do
How did you ever get away

I told him it’s so sad that thing you do
Why are you being so strict about this rule
I know you say you have to
I know it is your job
But don’t you think that you too need that song

He said that i should stop the song at once
Otherwise i wont have another chance
But he knew that down down deep inside
he didn’t even stop a real crime

How do you do those things that you do
Don’t you feel dead inside
How do you do those things that you do
How did you ever get away
Track Name: Diana
Diana will make you smile
With her childish laugh
She can see through your eyes
Let you know if you are tough

With her crooked little fingers
She can hold your heart
Let you know in the end
You’ll be torn apart

And just so, just so you know
You can’t have her at all
And just so just so you know
One by one they will fall

She is one one of the blessed
Carved by generous hands
That lovers would travel for
Throughout the lands

And she is never alone
But sometimes she is sad
You can always bring her home
But she will drive you mad

And just so, just so you know
You can’t have her at all
And just so just so you know
One by one they will fall

Diana will make you sad
When she is not close enough
But you are better off away
Cause her rules her rules are tough

And just so, just so you know
You can’t have her at all
And just so just so you know
One by one they will fall
Track Name: Fisherman's walk
Baby i don’t know if you’re feeling alright
Just tell me if you are coming home tonight
Oh no Don’t keep me waiting
Oh no another day went by

The people i know they know what i do
The know that patience’s got nothing to do
With me don’t keep me waiting
Oh no another day went by

Sing a sing along and dance with me
Walk down the street sing the melody
Oh no dont keep me waiting
Oh no another night went by
One of these days you ll burst into tears
You are gonna need a man to handle your fears
Come on dont keep me waiting

One of these days you ll burst into tears
You are gonna need a man to handle your fears
Come on dont keep me waiting
Oh no another night went by

Sing a sing along and dance with me
Walk down the street sing the melody
Oh no dont keep me waiting
Oh no another night went by

Sing a sing along and dance with me
Walk down the street sing the melody
Oh no dont keep me waiting
Oh no another night went by
Track Name: Believer
I’m new to this and i force my heart my soul my mind
To forget everything

I want i’d love to reach to try to see for myself
And realise
I find it all so blank
I find it all so fake
All i have to do is try and find
Another way to hold your head high
Find another way to hold your head high

I’m fooled again and i try to rellapse to rethink to regain myself
Overtime
My mind is filled with the stories of saints of people i met
That have failed in history

I find it all so blank
I find it all so fake
All i have to do is try and find
Another way to hold your head high
Find another way to hold your head high

Beautiful wonderful gardens of angels
Beautiful wonderful guardian angels
Uninvited

Find another way to hold your head high
Find another way to hold your head high
Track Name: Grace
And he is left alone tonight
And he wants to feel alright
He just needs 10 minutes of might

And he now hates his work
And he just moved to New York
And he needs to feel at home

And he shoots right into his veins
His mind is blank his heart will race
But soon he ll fall, oh he will fall from grace
But soon he ll fall, oh he will fall from grace
But soon he ll fall, oh he will fall from grace
Track Name: The gospel of the road
She was bleeding on the road
When i saw her
She was lying on the floor
So helpless
When she screamed
What about me

Doctor hurry up
Somebody save this
Woman and the child
Find a way and
Let them breathe
Let them breathe
Let them breathe

Everyone has seen her sleeping in the rain
On the floor
And everyday we are just staring at the wall
Everynight we see her begging on the road
In the cold
And everyday we are just feeling 10 feet tall
Save my soul

You bring the camera
This story is mine

They were gathering like crows
When they noticed
She was giving birth alone
And believe me
Everyone was there
Just like me
By her side

But the moment would expire
And the people
Fulfilling their desire
Took the trip home
And let her to
her same old life
On the street

Everyone has seen her sleeping in the rain
On the floor
And everyday we are just staring at the wall
Everynight we see her begging on the road
In the cold
And everyday we are just feeling 10 feet tall
Track Name: Save your soul
He woke up and wore
His heavy uniform
Son put that gun away
But he doesn’t plan to obey

Cause his mind’s made up
He was trained for that
And that’s the only thing he’ll say

But he is blind you see
From this hatred filled
And now his world is gone astray

Son save your soul
Son save your soul
You ve been wrong for so long

I once had heard her say
My life is not the one i used to dream of
And all i do is pray
But it doesn’t work from where i come from

And i prayed for change
Beyond my range
But i dont feel it anymore

But my soul is safe
Cause i work all day
And i bring my money home

Son save your soul
Son save your soul
You ve been wrong for so long

There is nothing i desire
But i am still dreaming
And the few things i admire
Dont have that much meaning
Not a thing touches my soul

One thing i must fight
To keep myself from dreaming
Few things i desire
But i wake up screaming
Not a thing touches my soul
None...

She left when morning came
Cause she couldn’t place the blame
His dreams became a wall
And for her it’s just too tall

In my new sweet home
Just outside of Rome
He brings me flowers every day

And my life feels right
We go out at night
And he always wants to pay

Son sove your soul
Son save your soul
You’ve been wrong for so long
Track Name: Don't look down on me
There are ways, We’ ve agreed to trust them
Cause you know, times are cold
In two days, i will drive the highway
And i’ll try to sell our gold

I’m not doing this for me
It’s the only way it’s meant to be

Please don’t look down me
I do what i was told
I can’t earn no living
And so i sell my gold

Please don’t look down on me
The times are cold
I’m not used to giving
But i gave up my soul

There are games, and we have to play them
Even though, we are getting old
In our maze, we cannot escape them
And i know, we cannot hold on

I cant do this no more
Can i skip the part and just go home

Please don’t look down me
I do what i was told
I can’t earn no living
And so i sell my gold

Please don’t look down on me
The times are cold
I’m not used to giving
But i gave up my soul
Track Name: Dear sir
They say your hands are tied
And so you get away
With crimes and lies and old tricks
Of the trade

And i hear bad things about you boy
I really hope they are all wrong
I hope one day you give us joy
For all we know you are just as strong

And just so you know
I don’t really like your tone
And just so you know
You don’t really deserve your throne

While you should be here
And we had nothing to fear
You could spend one year
To a place somewhere near

You bring me down
You bring me down
You bring me down
You bring me down
You bring me down
You bring me down
Track Name: We're on the road again
They picked us up from east berlin’s
Main highway
For a ride to the city of Amsterdam

They were three warm hearted folk
On their way
Living life the way they dreamt it on
The run

I said maybe we ll find our way
I said who cares, its all the same
Just go go go go go go go go
We are on the road again
Just go go go go go go go go
We are on the road again

We were stopped by the police
On our way
For a moment we had figured we were done
They were about to ruin our journey
And our plans
But they just showed us the way to amsterdam

I said maybe we ll find our way
I said who cares, its all the same
Just go go go go go go go go
We are on the road again
Just go go go go go go go go
We are on the road again
