On the High Seas

Was it someone she met that's so hard to forget
Was it some kind of an ocean of changes
I don't remember where she said she would be
And since I don't know, let me guess
Was it somewhere in Michigan or the Lake of the Woods
Up in old Montreal or Toronto the good
Somewhere in Reno or somewhere in Rome
And when all is said and done
Will she leave me alone
 
I don't want to get so low
And as for my sadness, it comes and it goes
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas
 
Was it up in Hornpayne where the trains run on time
Was she drinking champagne when she made up her mind
North of the border or down in South Bend
And when all is said and done
Is there no rainbow's end
 
I don't want to own the key
To some ghostly mansion where souls are set free
I don't remember where she said she would go
Straight for the highway or down the low road
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas

Bold Marauder

It's hi, ho, hey
I am the bold marauder
And hi, ho, hey
I am a white destroyer
 
For I will bring you silver and gold
And I will bring you treasure
And I will bring a widowing flag
And I will be your lover
 
And I will show you grotto and cave
And sacrificial altar
And I will show you blood on the stone
And I will be your mentor
 
And night will be our darling
And fear will be our name
 
It's hi, ho, hey
I am the bold marauder
And hi, ho, hey
I am the white destroyer
 
For I will take you out by the hand
And lead you to the hunter
And I will show you thunder and steel
And I will be your teacher
 
Then we will dress in helmet and sword
And dip our tongues in slaughter
And we will sing a warrior's song
And lift the praise of murder
 
And Christ will be our darling
And fear will be our name
 
It's hi, ho, hey
I am the bold marauder
And hi, ho, hey
I am the white destroyer
 
For I will sour the winds on high
And I will soil the river
And I will burn the grain in the field
And I will be your mother
 
And I will go to ravage and kill
And I will go to plunder
And I will take a fury to wife
And I will be your father
 
And death will be our darling
And fear will be our name
 

The House I Live In

What is America to me
A name, a map, the flag I see
A certain word: democracy
What is America to me
 
The house I live in
And the friends that I have found
The folks beyond the railroad
And the people all around
The farmer and the worker
The sailor on the sea
The men who built this country
That's America to me
 
The house I live in,
My neighbors white and black
The people who just came here
Or from generations back
The town hall and the soapbox
The torch of Liberty
A home for all God's children
That's America to me.
 
The words of old Abe Lincoln
Of Jefferson and Paine
Of Washington and Jackson
And the task that still remains.
Our little bridge at Concord
Where Freedom's Fight began,
Of Gettysburg and Midway
And the story of Bataan.
 
The house I live in,
The goodness everywhere,
A land of wealth and beauty
With enough for all to share.
A land that we call 'Freedom',
The home of Liberty,
With its promise for tomorrow
That's America to me
 

Hell Is For Children

They cry in the dark
So you can't see their tears
They hide in the light
So you can't see their fears
Forgive and forget
All the while
Love and pain become one and the same
In the eyes of a wounded child
Because hell, hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love
With your bones and your flesh
It's all so confusing this brutal abusing
They blacken your eyes and then apologize
Be daddy's good girl, and don't tell mommy a thing
Be a good little boy, and you'll get a new toy
Tell grandma you fell from the swing
Because hell, hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love
With your bones and your flesh
No, hell is for children
Hell, hell is for hell
Hell is for hell
Hell is for children
Hell, hell is for hell
Hell is for hell
Hell is for children
Hell, hell is for hell
Hell is for hell
Hell is for children
Hell is for children
Hell is for children
 

Faith in the Untamed

From the soul of the unnamed
To the devastating depths
Of the heads and the hearts of the shamed
With patience like the fury of a freight train
 
I’ll always have faith in the untamed
I have faith in the untamed
 
No room to think when digression is fought
Progression of thought dies and goes right out the door
It’s hard to move on when tradition is the whore
That keeps your feet nailed to the frozen floor
 
Now it weighs down your mind
And once again left you deaf, dumb, and blind
But I have faith that one day
We’ll have the strength to rip our every single page
 
I have faith
You’ll find no peace from this
You’ll still be empty
It will never end
This tradition is downfall
It’s hard to let go when you’re still holding on
You’ll find no peace from this
You’ll still be empty
You better believe we’re breaking boundaries
 
A routine for the uninspired
For the hearts that lack any fire
 
I have faith
You’ll find no peace from this
You’ll still be empty
It will never end
This tradition is downfall
It’s hard to let go when you’re still holding on
You’ll find no peace from this
You’ll still be empty
You better believe we’re breaking boundaries
 
You put your thoughts in dying hands
While you wade through the quicksand
 
You put your thoughts in dying hands
While you wade through the quicksand
 
You put your thoughts in dying hands
While you wade through the quicksand
 
First to realize, not verbally, but in your heart, your blood, your whole thinking, that human beings around the world goes through the same agonies that one goes through. The loneliness, the dispair, the depressions, the extraordinary uncertainty, insecurity, whether they live 10 thousand miles away or 2 thousand miles, or here, they are all psychologically bound together. If one realizes that profoundly, in your guts, your blood, your heart and your mind, then you are responsible.
