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

Do you know the muffin man

Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, do you know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane?
 
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane.
 
Do you know the ice cream man....
 
Do you know the fruit-stand man...
 
Do you know the muffin man...
 

Foxhunt

Try to run but you'll never make it out alive (4x)
 
Try to run 'cause we know you'll fall
Trapped in your faith is what you've been at all
The smell of leaf inside these woods
The taste of roots before he shoots
 
The bodies fall like gamblers dice
Are you ready to pay the price?
You'll pay the price
Pay it with your life
 
Chorus:
You can't flee when his hands are around your neck
Try to run and he'll stab you in the back
And when you meet him eye to eye
Be ready to say your last goodbye
 
He'll rip the skin all off your bones
Lay in the dark, he'll dig your hole
If you weren't so stuck in your own mind
You'd know he will cut your throat
 
Wake up!
He's behind you
Wake up!
He'll always find you
 
[Chorus]
 
Goodbye
 
[Chorus]
 
Bye!
 

Return To Me

Return to me
Oh my dear I'm so lonely
Hurry back, hurry back
Oh my love hurry back I'm yours
 
Return to me
For my heart wants you only
Hurry home, hurry home
Won't you please hurry home to my heart
 
My darling if I hurt you, I'm sorry
Forgive me and please say you are mine
 
Return to me
For my heart wants you only
Hurry back, hurry home to my arms
To my lips and my heart
 
Retorna me
Cara mia ti amo
Solo tu, solo tu, solo tu, solo tu
Mio cuore
 
My darling if I hurt you, I'm sorry
Forgive me and please say you are mine
 
Return to me
For my heart wants you only
Hurry back, hurry home to my arms
To my lips and my heart
Hurry back, hurry home to my arms
To my lips and my heart
 

Queen of the Waves (Eris Version)

Calling all mermaids, now's your chance
To give it up for Eris with a brand new dance
She razzles, she dazzles, she rules the sea
So let's rock the reef for her majesty
 
Pop up, lean in, side to side
Lay back, hang ten, go for a ride
Catch that curl, get into the tube
Do the mahi mahi, make your tail-fin move
 
She's the queen of the waves
Check her out she's spinning that pool around
Queen of the waves
No one's gonna take away her crown
(Her majesty is mighty fine)
Surf's up, bow down, she's the queen of the waves
 
Her smile, her style, you just gotta stare
The envy of mer-girls everywhere
A beauty, a cutie, and so in the know
Her charms pull you in like undertow
 
Pop up, lean in, side to side
Lay back, hang ten, go for a ride
Catch that curl, get into the tube
Do the mahi mahi, make your tail-fin move
 
She's the queen of the waves
Check her out she's spinning that pool around
Queen of the waves
No one's gonna take away her crown
(Her majesty'll knock 'em dead)
Surf's up, bow down
