Kept me enslaved With the taste of ambrosia fruit How could I have gotten myself into Murky waters My fears on the bank Watched my heart as it sank To the bottom Aimlessly floating Like I never knowing the way Token lives and broken glass How many moons for this to pass I picture us with no regrets Why can’t I shake this feeling Seems to persist and How can this be now All that we’ve become Where’s the love that was Has it turned to dust How can this be now All that we’ve become Where’s the love that was Has it turned to dust Once I had eyes in I know Tales that could not be untold Once I had eyes in my brain The secrets one could not forget Taught to live a fallacy Oh great being don’t bother me With the truth that I can hardly bear Don’t you know how cold it is out there Token lives and broken glass How many moons for this to pass I picture us with no regrets Why can’t I shake this feeling Seems to persist and How can this be now All that we’ve become Where’s the love that was Has it turned to dust How can this be now All that we’ve become Where’s the love that was Has it turned to dust

Love where have you gone Do you have my number Love where have you gone Without you got no peaceful slumber As the night draws on I ask Love where have you gone As I walk this road so long Tell me love where have you gone? When the sun shone down upon us I could clearly see your love for me But in the dark all that I trust Feel a miilion miles away from me As the night draws on I cry Love where have you gone As I walk this road so long Tell me love where have you gone? Love where have you gone Did you lose my number Love where have you gone Without you got no peaceful slumber Love I can’t feel Love I can’t see Love oh How I need you Love oh please come back to me Love lost how do I find you Love forgotten oh my god How do I remind you

Summer in the morning Yes you looking fine I open up my eyes and You glitter and you shine Keep doing what you doing Just do it one more time Said goodbye to discomfort see I’ve left it all behind And the way you hold me You hold me every time And the way you please me What more can I say? Maybe I should thank you But you always that way Autumn’s gonna come back please Summer won’t you stay? Summer when you shine You should stay all the time I’ll forever love you I’m easy you’ll be fine Summer when you go Oh I just want you so Summer you should know Oh I really love you so

Morning time Time to rise Got the sunshine In my eyes Cup of coffee Sherbrooke Street Feeling like It’s time to eat Don’t you worry about me It’s all good in NDG Breakfast waits At Tony’s place Eggs & bacon Stu my face Everybody’s Here again Perfect strangers, Old time friends Don’t you worry about me It’s all good in NDG Howard says He’s still alive Vivian is Looking fine Niki’s on the grill today Rose say’s coffee’s on the way This will be my seventh one And the day has Just begun Time to walk A little more so I Tip my hat and Hit the door Mr. Reagan’s On his way And soon we will Start our day What that means Is nothing much Guess we’ve got the Midas touch We like to watch the Price is Right Showcase Showdown – Now there’s a fight Then we work Or something like it Talk to people Circles widen Sun is setting But still light out Must get back to Back to the hideout And when e place is sealed Safe under lock and key That is where We assemble In total security The Sound Begins Within Inside The Mind The Heart The Soul And Out It Comes In An Explosion! Emotion The Inner The Outer And Yes, It’s Nothing Less Than Pure (Osmosis) Morning time Time to rise Got the sunshine In my eyes Oh Don’t you worry about me It’s all good in NDG

Oxygen We need more oxygen Oxygen Is what I’m fighting for Oxygen Gimme that oxygen I want more Judgement Judgement Can you trust your judgement Judgement Judgement Can you trust… Oxygen Splendid oxygen Oxygen Feeds the fire Oxygen Blessed oxygen I ain’t no liar What did you just imbibe? What went in your insides? Did it get behind your mind? Can you trust? Can you trust? What did you just inhale? Let me tell you a tale Once I swallowed a molecule That nearly killed me

Now that I’ve pulled at every single thread I look around me with a sense of dread Cage unlocked the asylum shook Easy road the only road you took Writing’s everywhere it’s on your wall Closing time now it’s last call Writing’s everywhere it’s on your wall Closing time now it’s last call Nation covered in Nation covered in clown paint Under the flag A smiling frown Or patron saint Nation covered in Nation covered in fear and hate Freedom democracy Or hypocrisy Your nation state Now that I turned every single stone I see a world that you no longer own Book your parades down the roads you pave Stick yo your pulpit you will rant and rave Writing’s everywhere it’s on your wall Closing time now it’s last call Writing’s everywhere it’s on your wall Closing time now it’s last call

Election Election Selection Time for us to pick a direction Election Selection Baby let’s make a connection Election Selection Everybody take up the collection Election Selection Hey this time let’s aim for perfection The trouble with the world At least as I see it Is love is in chains And somebody’s got to free it Who can we trust? Who can we elect? Who is gonna come about it live and direct? What must they know? What must they say? That’s the question that gets harder to answer Each and every day Election Selection There’s room over her in our section Election Selection We need a leader with a lot of affection Election Selection Wanna see some positive projections Election Selection Yes it’s time for a definitive correction For a long long time We’ve gone in the wrong direction Lately I’ve been thinking bout a permanent defection But this is my land My country For no one will I abandon What is dear to me If the one we have on top can no longer lead Maybe now’s the time that it’s up to me Pass me my suit and I’ll grab my tie What’s the worst that can happen if I give it a try OK PM, in your face My house cat Humbert just entered the race Election Selection Time for everybody to go a new direction Election Selection Come on all my people let’s make a correction Election Selection Osmosis Unlimited love injection Election Selection I’ll say it in French with an Anglophone inflection Election Selection Nous sommes l’espoir pour une age de perfection Election Selection Finally I’m getting a serious erection (Resurrection)

Some just want a piece of the pie Someone else All day long It’s so hard No matter how they try People need people And people need love People people need each other People need love Some buy gifts And fancy things Some spend money On diamond rings Never thinking about The joy they can bring To a little heart And make it sing People need people And people need love People people need each other We all need some love Some like furs And ???? Never thing bout the others and their woes Seems misfortune Is a natural thing Never seem to care Til misfortune rings Make a brother sister understand Little boy grow into a man Make a mother and father sing All the joy, all joy they’ll bring People need each other

Thoughts and Prayers A G D A If only thoughts and prayers Were guns and ammunition But why split hairs When talking abolition Life ain’t fair When people have permission To do what they dare In this land of no contrition F#m A The bible stops the bullet Once in a thousand years Got a trigger gotta pull it Blow away your fears Drop and feel the full hit It’s as bad as it appears It think we better cool it Look the prayers are here A G D A If only thoughts and prayers Were guns and ammunition But why split hairs When talking abolition Life ain’t fair When people have permission To do what they dare In this land of no contrition F#m A But wait the constitution Has a guarantee No freedom dilution On that we must agree Pray for absolution After every killing spree Our very institutions Keep us from being free A G D A If only thoughts and prayers Were guns and ammunition But why split hairs When talking abolition Life ain’t fair When people have permission To do what they dare In this land of no contrition C#m Bm Bm E Lock and load your thoughts and prayers And aim them well and true You know you’ll have my thoughts and prayers When they finally come for you Keep your thoughts and prayers well oiled You never know just when This nation rotted, nation spoiled Will come to kill again F#m A Bullet tension Foundation shook It’s a game of intention Let’s take a look A wicked invention For slaying crooks The divine pretension Of an ancient book A G D A If only thoughts and prayers Were guns and ammunition But why split hairs When talking abolition Life ain’t fair When people have permission To do what they dare In this land of no contrition

Say you want me say you love me But every time I need you you let me down You know I don’t have much I long so for your touch That’s why when you call I’m always around Not one single word that you speak Means anything anymore to me I see through your thin disguise I know what you see with those eyes I am just another dollar in your pocket A living breathing walking talking wallet Just another dollar in your pocket No matter what you call it. Don’t flatter me with those eyes You’re the alley cat that everybody feeds You purr and rub up against me Whenever I got something that you need Just another dollar in your pocket When you need jet fuel honey I'm your rocket Why can’t you just be honest You should try it before you knock it

You wanna fight crime in a skintight suit You wanna stop time and detect the truth You wanna ray gun, wanna turn to stone You wanna be the one who saves the universe alone You wanna be fast like Mercury Travel to the past and fix history You wanna jump buildings, you wanna bend bars See into the future, and fly to Mars Beyond the stars Faster than time So fast that nothing will ever stop you You want control of everything Better grab a lantern and a power ring Invasion looms, advancing hordes Shine your cosmic silver surfboard Nazi nemesis on the attack Throw the shield that always comes back No matter what just keep on fighting Raise your hammer and call the lightning The master plan's A disaster man Do what you can To save every last woman, child and man For this you need to find the key to everything Be ready to follow the sirens when you hear them ring You must let go of the thing that you hold closest Steel yourself the secret is You wanna be the one to disarm the bomb You wanna be the one that they can all count on You've seen the signs you know where we're headin' 2012 means Armageddon Sinister plot set into action Clock is ticking, chain reaction Shroud yourself in mystery Protect your secret identity Your family From tyranny It's all just a giant conspiracy For this you need to find the key to everything Be ready to follow the sirens when you hear them ring You must let go of the thing that you hold closest Steel yourself the secret is OSMOSIS!
