Compassion

Get it on
Right on

As zero point approaches
And the field around you drop
Thoughts become reality
And it feels like time has stopped

When all that's on the radio
Is electromagnetic pop
Steady, your teeth are gnashin'

Compassion
Get it on
Compassion
Right on

Love for the greater number
Freezes over and cools
And everyone around you acts
Like a bloody fool

No sanctity to the left of you
No righteousness to the right
The only thing that's left in fashion

Compassion
Get it on
Compassion

Whatever skin you're in
We all need to be friends
All happy again
So much better than nothing

Everybody can win
With a little faith in man
Beginning of an end
Start up a brand new something

When ego, fear, and judgment
Become the rule of law
Watch the polar ice caps
Heat up, melt down, and thaw

When the greedy one forgets
That he's the reason for it all
The only gold that's so worth stashing

Compassion
Get it on, get it on
Compassion
Right on, right on

In the high-seated lawless no love can be found
Nature will rise against nature and get down

Whatever skin you're in
We all need to be friends
All happy again
It's so much better than nothing

Everybody can win
With a little faith in man
Beginning of an end
Start up a brand new something

If you got compassion
Let's get back in fashion
The new international anthem

Whatever skin you're in
We all need to be friends
All happy again
It's so much better than nothing

Everybody can win
With a little faith in man
Beginning of an end
And start up a brand new something

Whatever skin you're in
We all need to be friends
(Black and white and yellow, we can be friends)
All happy again
It's so much better than nothing

Everybody can win
With a little faith in man
Beginning of an end
And start up a brand new something

Get it on
Right on

Beginning Endlessly

Never mind the birdfeed, honey
Just tell me your name
You won't have it long
If I get my way in this game

My reputation precedes me
Call it claim to fame
They know me around the world
You want me just the same

Why should you be satisfied
With just heaven and earth?
When you look around
There's so much more to the universe

Maybe every shining star
Is just another part
If you and I could ever open up
Our dirty hearts

Oh, open up, baby
Oh, yeah, yeah
Listen

All of the same minerals
And chemicals of space
You carry within your womb
That's how we got to this place

This might seem a bit serious
But if it turns you on
Come with me now, let's get nice
Till serious is gone

Why should you be satisfied
With just heaven and earth?
When you look around
There's so much more to the universe

Maybe every shining star
Is just another part
If you and I could ever open up
Our dirty hearts

Oh, come on
Get nice

Love is much too small a word
For what you'll feel for me
If you ever let me explore
Your anatomy

You and I lost in each other
Prisoners yet free
Come on, darlin', let's get down
To the beginning endlessly

Let's get down
Beginning endlessly
Let's get down

Come on, can't you see that I want ya?
Come on, can't you see that I want ya?
Feel me now

History is full of praise
For another's history
More remote than the one that came
Before both you and me

Left alone with our devices
Whatever will be will be
A brand new story in the making
Beginning endlessly

Love is much too small a word
For what you'll feel for me
If ever you let me be
Let me be your man

Ooh baby, understand
I wanna, I wanna be your man
Get on down

Come on
Come on, come on

Beginning endlessly

Future Soul Song

I had a dream last night
That I was flying for the first time
And in the dream I could pilot my flight
With the thoughts in my mind

Since there wasn't any up or down
Everybody was all around
When we sang, we all sang together
Oh, what a beautiful sound

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

I had a dream last night
That I was singing and the sound of my voice
Seemed to come from every mountain top
Like it had no choice

And when my voice rose, so did the sun
When the trees sang the harmony as one
Every living soul sang the most beautiful
Melody ever sung

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

Before the war the only words and language said
Let there be light
Those that can see it are the ones who believe it
And put up no fight

And in the absence of fear and control
Is the sound of the surrendering soul
Louder than the dogmatic persecution
I sing it like you got that right

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
Ooh, ooh, sha la la la la
This is the future soul song

Sticky Like Glue

Wheels go down, about to land
In another dream of you, all night long
Out of town, I had to go but now
I need a cup of somethin' black and strong

Beside me, I was just a-wakin' up
With you here, now you're gone
Why oh why didn't you hurry along
With me this time? Right or wrong

As a matter of fact, I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you, babe
When I get there, everything is cool
Beautiful lover, friend, I'll never leave you again
You and me, we're sticky like glue

Bright blue eyes staring down into mine saying
"Good morning, how are you?"
I can't lie, wakin' up in a plane
Without a warning, ain't too cool

Cast ashore without a paddle
And no more excuses, we just drown
What's the score? If you still really wanna
Be my muse then come around

As a matter of fact I just can't live without you, babe
I'm wonderin' if you feel the same way too
I'm huggin' this pillow tight, the way we did last night
The sweat of each other, sticky like glue

Sticky, sticky, 1, 2
That was the coolest movie ever
The one we saw last night
The closer you got to me
The less we saw, alright

The scene you remember the most is none of 'em
That ain't a boast, girl
I'm just in front of them others, I'm a gracious host
Everybody under me, make a toast

As a matter of fact, I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you, babe
When we're together, everything is cool
Beautiful lover, friend, I'll never leave you again
You and me, we're sticky, you and me, we're sticky
Sticky, sticky
You and me, we're sticky like glue

Break it down

Uh, get it
Sticky like glue

I despair
I got somethin' I wanna say to you, babe
You might wanna dig me later
I think you better dig me now
Listen

I can't get to sleep unless your body
Unless your body is right here next to me
It's crazy baby, I know we're dysfunctional

But I, I, I, I just can't, can't see myself
Myself with another, girl
Oh, what in the world is wrong with me?
I don't know what's wrong with me, babe

Tell me what to do, is it me or you?
We fight so much and then we're through
It might come as a shock to you
But I, I, I, I, I still love you, yes, I do

Sticky like glue, sticky, sticky
Don't you think I ain't when I am?
One more thing and then I'm out

You get us wet with your pride
Then you hang us both outside to cry, cry
What's that sound?
Said it must be raining, raining tears, tears, tears

But you need to dry your eyes
Please, please don't cry
'Cause we ain't, I ain't, going nowhere, no

Somebody needs to tell that girl
One more time, now
Sticky like glue

Act Of God

Dirty, fat banker sold a house today
Sold at auction, wants the family out the way
Kicked them on the street 'cause they couldn't pay the tax
Call it an act of God

I get a million dollars for people to hear me sing
Gotta give the banker half of everything
Did the founding fathers holler about the same thing?
Call it an act of God

But I got news for you, freedom ain't free
They lock you in a cell if you try to be
But the ones who say no make history
Call it an act of God

Tax dollars build a plane, drop a bomb
Supposedly to keep us all safe from Saddam
Bringin' bad news to another woman
Call it an act of God

I got news for you, freedom ain't free
They lock you in a cell if you try to be
The ones who say no make history
Call it an act of God

Funny how nobody's holy books are the same
Everybody's god got a different name
The day that it's over is the end of the game
And they call it an act of God

It'll be all over when the people are free
Free to be who and what they wanna be
Wherever we go is up to you and me
Call it an act of God

We so tired, so we threw a fit
There never was no hell or boogie man-eater
If you see, he's in your mirror
Call it an act of God

Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it an act of God, oh lord

Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it what you want except an act of God
Call it what you want except an act of God

Dirty, fat banker sold a house today
Sold at auction, wants the family out the way
Kicked them on the street 'cause they couldn't pay the tax

Lavaux

Take me to the vineyards of Lavaux
Wanna see the mountains where the waters flow
Life back home depresses me, just another form of slavery
The cost of freedom is anything but free

I don't care if they are covered with snow
I don't care if the road is narrow, if it is I'll know
It was always meant to be, still in love I must believe
Whatever path I choose will lead me home
Lead me home, Lavaux

Take me to the streets of Portugal
That might be my destiny to see the waterfall
Tears or rain, they're all the same
The only way to win this game
To let everybody play and share the ball

There ain't nobody got no chains on me
I'm flying higher than any mountain, deeper than any sea
A paradox is box's key, I'm the why in mystery
You're gonna unlock the secrets if you please

Come take me to an assembly in New York
To speak of the brand new everlasting wonder war
To win or lose is so absurd
And the only casualty is the word, the word

Revolution time has come today
'Cause it took a black face to see the same decay
Like the chocolate of Vavey, in the sun they'll melt away
As for me, I'll laugh and go to the mountains where the waters flow
Back to the vineyards of Lavaux

Lavaux
Lavaux
Lavaux
Lavaux

Take me to the vineyards of Lavaux
Wanna see the mountains where the waters flow
Life back home depresses me, just another form of slavery

Walk In Sand

After a long journey, the final mile
Wish that we walk together all the while
After a mile of labor, we both smile
All of the bets that we lost, both of us in denial

'Cause nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Another sun is rising
To bed with no delay
The both of us go despising
Not enough time to play

Memories come and then they go
Somewhere far away
Why can't we just get lost together
And spend each and every day doing it?

Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Walk in sand

We have danced with royalty
And pimps of the like
You can't please everybody
But such is a life

If there was only one thing
In this world that were true
Nothing's better in this world
Than to walk in sand with you

Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you
Nothing's better than to walk in sand
Hand in hand with you

After a long journey, the final mile
Wish that we walk together all the while
After a mile of labor, we both smile

Sea Of Everything

I see your picture wherever I go
I'm not here to lecture, just letting you know
I know you're busy, the world's calling you
If you don't answer what will you do?

You wander the wilderness
Searching for a king
Will you settle for a prince
And a sea of everything?

I read your letter, every word
No one writes better, at least none that I've heard
You sound so happy or is this a charade?
Will you still feel the same when the spotlight fades?

Will you wander the wilderness
Searching for a king?
Will you settle for a prince
And a sea of everything?

You and me are like two ships passing
Never reaching shore
If we ever, ooh, if we ever did
We'd just want more

No reason to care what people say
For the keys are so far, so far, so far away
No need to say, no need
To say I'd die without you, without you
Because I made, I made, what will you do?

Will you wander the wilderness
Searching for a king
Or will you settle for this
And a sea of everything?

Will you wander the wilderness
Searching, searching for a king
Or will you settle for this
And a sea of everything?

Everybody Loves Me

Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me
The beat you're giving is the rhythm of life
Everybody get happy

If you really come to party
This is the place to be
Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me

Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me

Tonight the stars are out
There's music in the air
The sounds of joy and celebration
Are drowning out despair

If you're the king of hate
Or if you're the queen of misery
Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me

Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me

This party's sick
We're gonna rock this whole town
Get the police quick
Don't let them shut us down

Don't do it
No
Rock it

Tonight I love everybody
That's right, everyone
I don't care what you came here for
As long as you have fun

Everybody get free
Everybody get free
Everybody love me

There ain't no shame in having a good time
There's only us to blame if we make it up right
Ooh, I ain't lying

There ain't nothing to it
But to do it
There ain't nothing to it
But to do it

Shake it like you don't know better
Woop de woop
Shake it like you don't know better
Woop de woop

There ain't nothing to it
But to do it

Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me
Me

Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me
Me

Everybody loves me
Everybody loves me

There ain't nothing to it
But to do it
There ain't nothing to it
But to do it
There ain't nothing to it
But to do it

Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me
Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me

Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me
Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me

Tonight I love everybody
Everybody loves me
The beat you're giving is the rhythm of life

Laydown

Turn it up

You need to, you need to
You need to lay it down
You need to, you need to
You need to lay it down

You need to lay it down
And let me show you how
We do this thing
Up in funky town

From the heart of Minnesota
Here come the purple Yoda
Guaranteed to bring the dirty, new sound
Come on now

You need to, you need to lay it down
Come on now
You need to, you need to lay it down
I see ya

You need to shut it up
Your cup ain't full enough
Let me show you what I learned
From laying in the cut

You need a six string
And let that sucker ring
The holy funking roll
Let it get the people up

You need to lay it down
(Get up)
You need to
(Get up)
You need to lay it down
(Get up, lay down)

To say this name borders on blasphemy
Everybody wanna be me
If your girlfriend didn't have the surgery
Maybe she could see what I see

You need to, you need to
You need to lay it down

You need to lay it down
And let me show you how
We do this thing
Up in funky town

From the heart of Minnesota
Here come the purple Yoda
Guaranteed to bring the dirty new sound
Come on now

Yours ain't really the grove we dance to
We need something more funky to move to
Y'all know what I'm talkin' 'bout
That purple bounce, bounce

Rio de Janeiro
Euro and Sud Amero
This dirty little groove for you
Let's do it now, come on, boo

Bounce, bounce
Come on now, come on now
Bounce, bounce
Come on now, come on now

Bounce, bounce
Come on now, come on now
Bounce, bounce
Come on now, come on now

You need to lay it down
And let me show you how
We do this thing
Up in funky town
