Living in the wasteland of the free

Living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got preachers dealing in politics and diamond mines
and their speech is growing increasingly unkind
They say they are Christ's disciples
but they don't look like Jesus to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got politicians running races on corporate cash
Now don't tell me they don't turn around and kiss them peoples' ass
You may call me old-fashioned
but that don't fit my picture of a true democracy
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got CEO's making two hundred times the workers' pay
but they'll fight like hell against raising the minimum wage
and If you don't like it, mister, they'll ship your job
to some third-world country 'cross the sea
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
Living in the wasteland of the free
where the poor have now become the enemy
Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
Sounds like some kind of Hitler remedy
Living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got little kids with guns fighting inner city wars
So what do we do, we put these little kids behind prison doors
and we call ourselves the advanced civilization
that sounds like crap to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got high-school kids running 'round in Calvin Klein and Guess
who cannot pass a sixth-grade reading test
but if you ask them, they can tell you
the name of every crotch on MTV
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We kill for oil, then we throw a party when we win
Some guy refuses to fight, and we call that the sin
but he's standing up for what he believes in
and that seems pretty damned American to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
Living in the wasteland of the free
where the poor have now become the enemy
Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
Sounds like some kind of Hitler remedy
Living in the wasteland of the free
 
While we sit gloating in our greatness
justice is sinking to the bottom of the sea
Living in the wasteland of the free
Living in the wasteland of the free
Living in the wasteland of the free

Killing Me To Love You

Your body is broken but you’re trying to fight this
Your arms are weary but you’re trying to hide this
 
I, I’ll bring you home, it’s been so long
Aaah we’re fighting alone back to where we belong
 
It’s growing faster than you’ve grown
Now you’re stronger than yourself
I’m fighting for you
I’m hiding for you
But it’s killing me to love you
But it’s killing me to love you
But it’s killing me to love you
 
You lost it all and now you've been left open
And you were starting to heal but you've been tearing apart this(?)
 
It’s growing faster than you’ve grown
Now you’re stronger than yourself
I’m fighting for you
I’m hiding for you
But it’s killing me to love you
But it’s killing me to love you
But it’s killing me to love you
 
I want to keep faith, but you're making it harder
(But it's killing me to love you)
I’m reaching out now but you're pulling me under
(But it's killing me to love you)
I give you my heart just to watch you waste it
(But it's killing me to love you)
And I can't let go when you still need saving
 

Nothing Stopping Me

Just when I realized
You been shutting me out
I start to reach for the sky
And nothing's falling down
 
Everybody knows
How the story goes
But fairy tales have been lying to me
Every time I try
You just run and hide
Now I'm finally feeling free
 
Tell me can you see me now
While I rise above the crowd
Who would of known I'd make it out
Your broken world, no
 
You thought you tore me down
I'm not giving up, now you know
So tell me can you see me now
Rising above
And nothing's stopping me now
Nothing's stopping me now
Nothing's stopping me
 
Now I know my feet
They won't fail me now
So thanks for showing me
All that I am about
 
Everybody knows
How the story goes
But fairy tales have been lying to me
Every time I try
You just run and hide
Now I'm finally feeling free
 
Tell me can you see me now
While I rise above the crowd
Who would of known I'd make it out
Your broken world, no
 
You thought you tore me down
I'm not giving up, now you know
So tell me can you see me now
Rising above
And nothing's stopping me now
Nothing's stopping me now
‌So can you see me now
Can you see me now
 
Tell me can you see me now
While I rise above the crowd
Who would of known I'd make it out
Your broken world, no
 
You thought you tore me down
I'm not giving up, now you know
So tell me can you see me now
Rising above
And nothing's stopping me now
 

True Love Travels On A Gravel Road

How many girls
Would choose a cotton-dress world
When they could have satins and lace?
To stand by her man
Through good times and bad
And still keep a smile on her face?
How many hearts would feel the winter's wind blow
And still not turn cold?
True love travels on a gravel road
Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets paved with gold
But true love travels on a gravel road
Down through the years
We've had hard times and tears
But it only helps our love grow
And we'll stay together
No matter how strong the wind blows
Not once have i seen your blue eyes fill with envy
And stray from the one that you hold
True love travels on a gravel road
Love is a stranger and hearts are in danger
On smooth streets paved with gold
But true love travels on a gravel road...
 

Gone

I know you've been faithful
I know you've been true
Yeah, and I feel grateful
To have days with you
 
But as the days go by (days go by)
This feeling grows inside (grows inside)
It's like I'm in disguise
 
I've been wrong for you lately
Know it's driving you crazy
I don't want you to hate me
I'm gone
 
Think that I'm crazy
Cuz I've been acting so spacey
I just don't want you to hate me
I'm gone
 
(I'm gone)
(I'm gone)
 
I don't wanna lose it all
If we wanna choose at all
I don't wanna lose it all
If we wanna choose at all
 
I don't wanna lose it all
If we wanna choose at all
I don't wanna lose it all
If we wanna choose at all
 
(Kuwada:)
I feel so gone sometimes feeling distant
Feel the energy and its rhythm
She like the vibe too much
Say too much with an empty cup
I feel like I'm in danger
And like sometimes I'm a stranger
And what she's thinkin bout
She's thinkin bout is me
And yeah girl let's just feel it like the first time
And tell me just what altered your words like
And to an island we drifting we're not closer
And fuck this distance why don't you just come over?
 
I've been wrong for you lately
Know it's driving you crazy
I don't want you to hate me
I'm gone
 
Think that I'm crazy
Cuz I've been acting so spacey
I just don't want you to hate me
I'm gone
