Time & Truth (2016)


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
