Track Name: Lovers One - Haters Zero
Lovers One - Haters Zero

I don’t care anymore
Don’t care what they’re saying about me
She could walk through that door
With a man on her arm and her hair in a mess
You know I’ve put down
That brick I was holding
There’s no getting around
The hater gets hurt worse than the hated

And I’ll tell you that it’s
Hard on the soul
When your spiting fire and kerosene
Letting it go
Has proven to be the hardest thing
It’s hard on the soul
I’ve been losing friends and my appetite
Letting it go
has proven to be the hardest thing
to live through

And I don’t want to know why
Don’t want to hear no candid confessions
I just want to walk by
Without a stone on my chest
and a mouth full of lessons
And when it comes down
People will do just what they want to
And if you try to
Hold ground
you may loose everything except your convictions

And I’ll tell you that it’s
Hard on the soul
When your losing friends and your appetite
Letting them go
Has proven to be the hardest thing
It’s hard on the soul
I’ve been spiting fire and kerosene
Letting it go
has proven to be the hardest thing
to live through

Track Name: Cool River
Cool River

Cool , cool river
Take me down a country mile
This whole town’s burning
Let me rest here for a while

Turn off all the static
This ugly buzzing and all the thunder in the street
Give me silence like a snow storm
Give me a sunny Sunday morning
Give me peace

Deep slow water
Swollen by the rain
Pull me from the banks of this disaster
Like a sliver from the skin
Like a needle from the vein

If I could turn off all the voices
All of the chatter
All of the panic in my sleep
You know I’m tired of all this trouble
River bring me some relief

Hold me lover
Hold me in your welcome arms
You’re my sweet protector
Let me rest here
Turn off the alarms

When I’m twisted like a cyclone
When I’m churning like the sea
You root me to this earth woman
Bring me sweet release

Lyric by Robert Wilson and Andrew Westoll (c)2009 Late Arrival Music
Track Name: Jimmy Cliff
Jimmy Cliff

The harder they come the harder they fall
Jimmy cliff told me and I believe it all
If you don’t push you don’t move if you don’t feel you don’t groove

Enough is enough
I’ve been sitting to still
Standing at the back of the line just waiting for my space to fill
It’s gonna be alright
Got a good groove to get me on through the night

Oow eee oww ee
You call me up
Thinking that sorry is good enough
Oow eee oww ee
I’m not gonna play
the next one out this way

I’ve been feeling down
But I’m getting back up
No please don’t move me
I’m feeling like a real fuck up
And it’s dangerous
Cause pain is contagious

There’s nowhere to run this is where I live
Talk in’ bout the down home, the big scoop, the real stuff, the deep shit
I’m working for peace from the inside,
and trying to push it out into the real life

Oow eee oww ee
You call me up
Thinking that sorry is good enough
Oow eee oww ee
I’m not gonna play
the next one out this way

Can we get down to it like bare feet on the dry earth
Do you know what you really need
Like the seeds of an evergreen, reaching
I think I can see
That it’s up to me
To make my world better
You’ve got to push until you move it
You’ve got to push until you move it
You’ve got to push until you move it
You’ve got to push until you

(Chorus)

Track Name: Big Sore Heart
Big Sore Heart

Driving at night, just following the lines
I’m with myself and a cold November sky
Big sore heart
Big sore heart

So many things to see under the sun
And many ways to get the same thing done
Big sore heart pulled up and blew away
Big sore heart

You bet your love
You bet your life
You are you, are you are
Alone tonight

Car parts and all sorts of monsters in the night
80 miles to the next bright light
Big sore heart
Stay up with me tonight
Big sore heart

You bet your love
You bet your life
You are you are you are
Alone tonight

So hold the corner now
You didn’t make the grade
You’ll find your way somehow
Bend don’t break

Driving at night, just following the lines
I’m with myself and a cold November sky
Big sore heart
Big sore heart, heart, heart..

Track Name: Gonna Make it
Gonna make it

I bought some food, cause I saw this comin’
It’s a slow time now and we’re all slummin’
Gotta keep, gotta keep my heart up,
And I’ll always make it
I jumped the turnstile at the Main Street Station.

They’re checking tickets down at the next stop
so I slipped off and I had to walk,
Thirty- two block just to get there late,
Do it again they said they’d dock my pay,


I said I I, I, I
I’m gonna make it

Gonna make a call,
If I can track him down.
My buddy’s got a friend says maybe I can help him out.
Nothing violent, organic grown hydroponic.
Raising the medicine for the down hearted.

It’s a short-term answer to a long-term state.
I might kick it around until I get my break.
My lady’s so tired of all this suffering
Oooh I’m busted.

I
I,I,I,I,
I’m gonna make it.

Track Name: Star Gazing
Star Gazing

You can’t fight it
You can’t fight everything you see
You don’t know about
You can’t hold all the mystery
You don’t know why
You don’t know why you’ve got to feel
That life’s been kicking you down
It’s been pushing you round
You been getting a shitty deal
Baby come out

Star gazing
Oh oh oh
Yo Baby come out star gazing
With me

We all sleep to dream
Every soul pushing the rules of reality
The brave ones try
To bring this power to the daylight it. Seems to me
You don’t know how
To find a picture for your life that you want to try
You better know your own worth
You’re being held by the earth
Feel the weight you’re being held by the sky
Yo Come out

Star gazing
Oh oh oh
Baby come out star gazing
Oh oh oh
Yo Baby come out star gazing
Oh oh oh
Baby come out you come along with me

All the space between
Every burning star and you and me
You don’t know how much light you give off
Like a ship carried home by the light of a long dead star
You’re up too close to yourself to know just what you are

Star gazing
Oh oh oh
Baby come out star gazing
Oh oh oh
Yo Baby come out star gazing
Oh oh oh
Baby come out you come along with me

Track Name: Know U At All
Know U at all

What does this say about you?
What does this say about me?
Both of us just let this happen.

I’m not returning your calls
And your not behaving at all
In a way that’s self-respecting

NO
Making myself crazy
Wishing things could be the way they were before
Hey ya
I didn’t know myself any better than you
It sure turned out I didn’t
Know U at all

Why’s it mean so much to me?
And why is it so hard to be?
Honest with myself let alone you
You’ve been telling me lies
your pushing for me to comply
well you know I love you but baby.,

NO
Making myself crazy
Wishing things could be the way they were before
Hey ya
I didn’t know myself any better than you
It sure turned out I didn’t,
Know U at all

Hey ya ah
Making myself crazy
Wishing things could be the way they were before
Hey ya
I didn’t know myself any better than you
It sure turned out I didn’t,
Know U at all

What does this say about you?
What does this say about me?
Both of us just let this happen.

Track Name: Leaving Home
Leaving home

I don’t remember what we fought about
That day you got out of the car
But every detail of the way you looked
has stuck with me thus far

And now you
Think you might be terrible
I’m afraid I might be too
And all our friends are taking sides
And I’m afraid of who they’ll choose

There’s a tall man in the driveway
And he’s moving my things
you go yours, I’ll go my way it’s a
calm ,cynical feeling. Stoned
that’s it I’m leaving home

how do you know when you’ve tried enough
how do you know when to give it a rest
cause we’ve been living on a treadmill baby
can ya say we tried our best

what if I could change ya
what if we could make it
Deep down lover you know
Just can’t carry on like this
but I’m afraid to let you go

There’s a tall man in the driveway
And he’s moving my things
you go yours, I’ll go my way it’s a
calm ,cynical feeling. Stoned

that’s it I’m leaving home

Track Name: Taxi Cab
I was driving in a taxicab,
Passing 45th at mcNabb
And there’s an old song on the radio
I said hey turn this up and take it slowly

getting off work at a club downtown
Wasn’t much of anyone around.
The driver lit a smoke as he drifted lanes
He said you know people are pretty much the same

We all want to fall
We all want to feel
We all want to know
Were getting a good deal
Kid let me tell you what
It’s not enough to go with the one that loves you
You better go with the one you love.

It’s a little past 3 am,
and I’ll be crawling into bed so late again
The dawn was close and the streets were clear
I said Hey, pull it over I’ll walk from here

She was waiting for me at home.
Been asleep hours ago
And I was thinking about compromises
The American man and the little lies.

We all want to fall
We all want to feel
We all want to know
Were getting a good deal
Kid let me tell you what
It’s not enough to go with the one that loves you
You better go with the one you love.

The turn of the key and the creak of the door
Nothings ever the same as it was before
She left the light on cause she knew I’d be coming home
Now deep down everyone knows
Everything we love in time will go
We invented the word forever
to make a small thing big and make us all feel better.

We all want to fall
We all want to feel
We all want to know
Were getting a good deal
Kid let me tell you what
It’s not enough to go with the one that loves you
You better go with the one you love.

Track Name: Space
Space

Drifting up from below sub-conscious mind
Cosmic triggers and holy shrines
Homeless thoughts
And my
honest opinion is
I don’t know where it is
What I’m looking for

What’s the point?
Of doing anything
Striving to gain
worldly charms
When it’s all
Nothing in the end
Dust and gravity and light that bends
Stars in cold space

But even inside me and you
There’s more space than matter
And it’s true everything is everything
Like the soul man sang

Holding out for true love at all costs
Braved the loneliness and the loss
I felt myself dissolving
But now the revolution has arrived
It’s changed the colour of the sky
And all I did was notice
that

But even inside me and you
There’s more space than matter
And it’s true everything is everything
Like the soul man sang

He said everything is everything
Everything is everything

Lyric by Robert Wilson (c) 2009 Late Arrival Music
