TIME AND TRUTH (2015)

LYRICS


Time and Truth
 

Time, time and truth/Time the tree Truth the roots
Trust is the earth/We’re anchored to
Me and you and time and truth

 

Faith, faith and hope /Faith the light, Hope the road
Love the wheels/To our unknown
Make our way with love and faith and hope

 

Lead the way time and truth
Trust each day we do
Faith and hope and love we know
Will carry us through
Me and you and
Time and truth

 

Fear, fear and doubt/Fear the voice, doubt the sound
So clear and low/So mean and loud
We drown out the noise of fear and doubt

 

Lead the way time and truth
Trust each day we do
Fear and doubt can’t bring us down
What carries us through is
Me and you and
Time and truth

 

Peace and dreams/Peace the end and dreams the means
To hold them close/Is what we believe
We chase everyday our peace and dreams

 

Lead the way Time and truth
Trust each day we do
Peace and dreams We believe
Will carry us through
Me and you and time
Me and you and
Time and truth

 
 



Pipers
 

LIGHTS ON SMILES ON
MOST IMPORTANT IS YOU DISAGREE
INSULTS EXULTS
IN NEVER MORE THAN WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME

 

SHOUT A LITTLE LOUDER NUMB THE CROWD AND SOON THEY’RE EATING FROM YOUR HAND
FOLLOW ME THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY BACK TO OUR FORGOTTEN PROMISED LAND

 

THE SIGNS THE WARNINGS
THE CRIMES IGNORING
THE SCENES JUST TO HOLD THE VIEWERS GAZE
THE BLINDED CHOICES
THE DROWNED OUT VOICES
REMINDERS THEY STRETCH INTO THE HAZE
A LONG LINE OF PIPERS TO BE PAID

 

PLAY DUMB WE WON
IT’S HARD-EARNED THIS REWARD WE’LL ALL BE GETTING
STAY LOOSE WITH THE TRUTH
IT’S ON SHORT MEMORIES THAT WE ARE BETTING

 

SHIFT THE BLAME IT’S JUST A GAME ALTHOUGH IT’S JUST AS PLAIN AS BLACK AND WHITE
COUNTIN’ ALL THE MONEY MEANS YOU NEVER NEED THE TIME SLEEP AT NIGHT

 

THE SIGNS THE WARNINGS
THE CRIMES IGNORING
THE SCENES JUST TO HOLD THE VIEWERS GAZE
THE BLIND CHOICES
DROWNED OUT VOICES
REMINDERS THEY STRETCH INTO A HAZE
A LONG LINE OF PIPERS TO BE PAID

 

SO LET’S NOT POINT THE FINGER
WHAT GOOD WILL IT DO
WE’VE LEARNED OUR LESSON
NOT AGAIN WE SWEAR IT’S TRUE
WE’RE LOOKING OUT FOR YOU

 

HISTORY’S A MEMORY THE FOOL REWRITES UNTIL HE LIKES THE SOUND
WHERE’S THAT GONNA GET YOU WHEN IT ALL COMES TUMBLIN’ DOWN
TUMBLIN’ DOWN
TUMBLIN’ DOWN

 

THE SIGNS THE WARNINGS
THE CRIMES IGNORING
THE SCENES JUST TO HOLD THE VIEWERS GAZE
THE BLINDED CHOICES
DROWNED OUT VOICES
REMINDERS THEY STRETCH INTO A HAZE
A LONG LINE OF PIPERS TO BE PAID
SUCH A LONG LINE OF PIPERS TO BE PAID

 
 



Innocents
 

Armed to the teeth, awkward and shy
The morning bell rings, the bullets fly
20 schoolchildren and 8 adults dead
The shooter puts the gun to his head,

 

It’s a worn out script a tired cliché
We all know the ending so who’s to blame and…

 

What’s a few, what’s a few, what’s a few more wasted lives
What’s a few, what’s a few, what’s a few more years but time
What’s a few more tears and scars/What’s a few more broken hearts
What’s a few more again, again and again
What’s a few more dead innocents now and then

 

We watch in horror in outrage we cry
But what has changed since Columbine
Isla Vista, Ft. Hood, Virginia Tech
The Arizona Safeway, the Colorado Cineplex

 

We just keep adding to the list like a running score
Hell the next lucky town might just be yours but

 

What’s a few, what’s a few, what’s a few more wasted lives
What’s a few, what’s a few, what’s a few more years but time
What’s a few more tears and scars/What’s a few more broken hearts
What’s a few more again, again and again
What’s a few more dead innocents now and then

 

Buy-backs, background checks, outright bans
Guns don’t kill, right to bear, cold dead hands
A nonstop barrage of hopeless rhetoric
Won’t stop a tortured soul and a 30-round clip

 

So pretty soon on some new hallowed ground
More pools of blood more innocence drowned

 

What’s a few, what’s a few, what’s a few more wasted lives
What’s a few, what’s a few, what’s a few more years but time
What’s a few more tears and scars/What’s a few more broken hearts
What’s a few more again, again and again
What’s a few more, What’s a few more dead innocents now and then

 
 



The Lost Cause
 

The lost cause is the man without his freedom
Unallowed to make his own way
Repression’s weight bears down on him
And covers every corner of his every day

 

The lost cause is the man who oozes corruption
Contempt falls wicked from his tongue
Suppression camouflaged as security
He’s hoarding the money and holding the gun, it’s…

 

A long long road to choice
A long long road to a voice
A long long road to right so many wrongs
A long long road for the long lost cause

 

The lost cause is the history of injustice
Generations left behind
But courage fills the undaunted
And hope shines brightly in the boldest eyes

 

A long long road to choice
A long long road to a voice
A long long road to right so many wrongs
A long long road for the long lost cause

 

Human dignity and freedom
One and all we’re born the same
We can’t deny the universal
It fuels those to walk another day

 

A long long road to choice
A long long road to a voice
A long long road to right so many wrongs
A long long road, a long long road, for the long lost cause

 
 



I Believe
 

I believe in cappuccinos, a little sugar
Berries in my oatmeal and table manners
A good night’s sleep and exercise
I believe in fresh air and every sunrise
I believe, I believe, I believe

 

I believe in a wave, a smile for a stranger
A handshake is nice, a hug always better
Tiny first steps, in the long haul
I believe in the gift of rising when we fall
I believe, I believe I believe

 

I believe in beautiful, I believe in pain
I believe in the big picture, I believe in the frame
I believe, I believe I believe

 

I believe in failure, it’s good to be scared
Real communication, man it’s hard to get there
Curiosity and questions burning
I believe I know little and living is learning
I believe, I believe, I believe

 

I believe in lust and temptation
The solace and the strength of solid foundation
Love must be done, sometimes it hurts
I believe in for better, I believe in for worse
I believe, I believe, I believe

 

I believe in beautiful, I believe in pain
I believe in the big picture, I believe in the frame

 

That compels me every night to be
Amazed and grateful for my life
Tells me lead with kindness
That’s where you’ll find peace
That’s what I believe
That’s what I believe
I believe a good listener is something to be
And that everytime we give, we receive
Happiness is all around us everyday
I believe we can make the world a better place
I believe I believe I believe

 

I believe if you feel it, that’s what you feel
It can be so tough to just be real
Magic that happens when we all dance
I believe in doing what one man can
I believe I believe I believe

 

I believe times sayin’ we gotta slow down
Whatever’s been lost can always be found
Peace and quiet and solitude
I believe joy marches with gratitude
I believe I believe I believe

 

I believe in my friends, my family
In my wife and my kids and they believe in me
I believe in you every word of that is true
I believe in you, I believe in you, I believe in you, I believe in you

 

I believe in justice, truth, equality
I believe in compassion, forgiveness sets us free

 

I believe in the magic of all that we don’t know
I believe in the music we all have in our souls

 

I believe in beautiful, I believe in pain
I believe in the big picture, I believe in the frame
I believe, I believe I believe
