Lyrics

1. BABY NOW !

Baby now I. .
I got a heart full of emotion.

Baby now I. .
Dive into your ocean.

Baby now I. .
Would pull down the heavens for you.

Baby now I. .
Just so I can get through.

You got me runnin' well girl I got something for you.
You got me burnin' well girl you know it's true.

Baby now I. . I do it baby now I do it all. Ooh I do it all For love.
Baby now I. . I do it baby now I do it all. Ooh I do it all For love.

Baby now I. .
I Would run along the sharpest blade.

Baby now I. .
Long to lie in your shade.

You got me runnin' well girl I got somethin' for you.
You got me burnin' well girl you know it's true.

Baby now I. . I do it baby now I do it all. Ooh I do it all For love.
Baby now I. . I do it baby now I do it all. Ooh I do it all For love.




2. BLAME IT ON THE MOON

Some young strappin' boy stepped on her little halo & Filled her up with joy.
Six weeks later she got the news, the child was carrying a Child, It gave her mama the blues.

& she said, Why oh lord oh why me?
What have I done for you to foresake me?
Why oh lord oh why me?
Whatever you do, don't blame it on me.

Baby come too soon, blame it on the moon.
Baby come too fast, blame it on the past.
Who needs love, when it feels so good?
Baby come to soon, blame it on the moon.

"This won't hurt much" he lied. The tears ran down her Soul.
That night her innocence cried.
Starin' down the barrel of a selfish man who loved her Just once & had a sudden change of plans.

& she said, Why oh lord oh why me?
What have I done for you to foresake me?
Why oh lord oh why me?
Whatever you do, don't blame it on me.

Baby come too soon, blame it on the moon.
Baby come too fast, blame it on the past.
Who needs love, when it feels so good?
Baby come to soon, blame it on the moon.

(You would never do anything to hurt me would you?)
(Why would I wanna hurt you? I only wanna make you feel Good. )

Baby come too soon, blame it on the moon.
Baby come too fast, blame it on the past.
Who needs love, when it feels so good?
Baby come to soon, blame it on the moon.
Baby come too fast, blame it on the past.
Who needs love, when it feels so good?
Baby come to soon, blame it on you know who.




3. MIX IT UP

"Aggression is defeated. . The war is over!" (George Bush Sample)

Open the door, hinged on reality
There's more than the floor, there's the sky, Spirituality?
Maybe, who knows, time to get free.
I care about you even if you don't give a shit about me
That's what love is. . It's not just built for two,
It's built on a future, one we might not get through.
Strangers & brothers & beggars & sisters,
Hipsters, Quipsters, Quadrophonic tricksters
They don't care about your hair, the issue is dead, over & Out.
Vanity sucks, enough said. . Instead. . Instead. .

Let's talk about violence. Let's talk about ignorance.
Why don't we talk about prejudice. Go back to school fool.
You're a fool. . Believe it, but you can relieve it.

Do what you got to do. . Say what you got to say.
Mix it in the middle. . Let everybody play. Mix it up.
Do what you got to do. . Say what you got to say.
Mix it in the middle. . Let the piano play.

One thing is for certain, it's curtains if we keep Flirtin' fate &
Hurtin' with hate. Time to grow up, get real, come on
We can ressurect the world by the lights early dawn
What so proudly we hail at twilights' last gleaming
"This victory belongs to the finest fighting force this Nation has ever seen in it's history" (George Bush)

Tonight it's alright, you can groove
Tomorrow you wake up, you can't move
Cause the weight of the world gets too much to hold
You need somebody when the night grows too cold.

Do what you got to do. . Say what you got to say.
Mix it in the middle. . Let everybody play. Mix it up.
Do what you got to do. . Say what you got to say.
Mix it in the middle. . Let evertbody play. Mix it up.

Drugs, That's a life of glamour
Comes crashing on your hopes like a ball-peen hammer
Get rich quick, sure. . End up dead on a curb
Or be alive like a ghost in a drive-by suburb
Pressure. . That's the lesson here
Control enough people you can have a career

That's a beaten road, it's tired, it lacks imagination
We got mass on sunday, but no mass communication
My dream. . knowledge is no pipe dream
Money makes the world go around? Full blown hype dream

Do what you got to do. . Say what you got to say.
Mix it in the middle. . Let everybody play. Mix it up.
Do what you got to do. . Say what you got to say.
Mix it in the middle. . Let evertbody play. Come on.

What's holdin' up the party
A brand new state of affairs in the department of arty
Congressman got your tounge?
Well a bumpin' new rhythm has just begun.

Story 'bout a greedy girlie, she was named Lisa
Left her man for a gold-plated Visa
Made the right moves, had the world in her fist
But the kiss of her poor boy she sure missed
She didn't Mix it Up. . Rich & poor, young & old.
Black & white, wrong & right. . Here comes the night
"What happened to her boyfriend?"

He believed the commercials that said drink beer, get laid
But at closin' time he was alone, he didn't get paid.
Last night his lover was a razorblade. .




4. THE HEAT

I like my body When it's next to yours
I love my kisses When they're mixed with yours
We should be workin' on some overtime
A little sexy talk on the telephone line

Send your love Send it through the wire
Stop the heat The Heat from another fire
Send your love Send it through the wire
Stop the heat The Heat from another fire

I don't mind trouble as long as I am in it with you
And I love that filthy old money
As long as I can burn it on little ole' you

We should be workin' on some overtime
A little sexy talk on the telephone line

Send your love Send it through the wire
Stop the heat The Heat from another fire
Send your love Send it through the wire
Stop the heat The Heat from another fire




5. LET IT GO

Sister I'm needin' you now
There is something you can help me find
I can't feel the words on my tounge, but they're on my mind

Lonely is the autumn wind
As it plays a song I used to know
I hide behind my innocent lies, in my one man show

Your love is so high, even god couldn't begin to kiss it's Sky

Let it go release my pain
Let it go Let your love be rain for me
Let it go release your pain
Let it go Let my love be rain for you

Sister is it too late for me
You can tell me with a touch of your hand
Warm me with your faith & give me a hope to understand

Your love is so thick, even god gouldn't put his arms Around it

Let it go release my pain
Let it go Let your love be rain for me
Let it go release your pain
Let it go Let my love be rain for you
Let it go Let your love be rain for me Let it go.




6. LOVE DON'T WORK THAT WAY

I got you girl you got me girl
There's no need to put me through the things you put me Through
First you entertain then you're inhumane
I don't like this pain you hurt me hurt me

Love don't work that way come on girl Love don't work that Way

Got the devil moon in our bedroom
Makes me close the shades Makes you turn your back
And then you fade away
Next you're on the ground tryin' to break me down
Round and round and round and round and round You hurt me Hurt me

Love don't work that way come on girl Love don't work that Way

Last night on the telephone line
You weren't my baby or no friend of mine
You were somebody different that I don't care to know
I'm outta here Love Don't Work That Way




7. MONEY

Money, get away
Get a good job with more pay and your O. K.
Money, It's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash
New car, caviar, four star daydream
Think I'll buy me a football team
Money, get back
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off my stack
Money, it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet

Money, it's a crime
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie
Money so they say
Is the root of all evil today
But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that they're
Giving none away




8. CHILL OUT

Babies fightin'before they can read
Old men cryin' you know they can see
Military spending while children don't eat
I can't understand it makes no sense to me
So I'm askin' everyone to check out my point of view
It might be time for a new attitude
So take a look around you, there's somethin' you can do
Don't you think it's time we all chill out

Now don't get me wrong things they ain't so bad
But there's some crazy people who'll mess up what we have
They're hungry for power, but I know we can stop 'em
Open our eyes, Take a walk in the sun
And if we hand around here's a challenge for you all
Let's live together before it all falls
So talke a look around you, there's somethin' you can do
Don't you think it's time we all chill out

Now one more thing that I thought I might add
There's a lot of good times left that we can all have
So let's think about the future and use a little sense
You can eat the whole pie, But it's better to share
So stop and ask yourself, is it worth the time we spend
Fussin', Fightin' an' arguing
Just take a look around you, there's somethin' you can do
Don't you think it's time we all chill out




9. LIFE IS SEX

Save me some space in your life I will walk the night with You
Holding your virtue in my hands Come on girl what can you Lose

Taste the burn with your anxious tongue
Wait for your body to say yes
We'll dive into some sacred space
The sins of our past we may confess
The sins of your past you may confess
The sins of our past we may confess Say y e s

Life is sex and sex is sin Come on baby Let's begin
Life is sex and sex is sin Come on baby Let's begin

A tiny dress falls on the floor No one watchin' or kepin' Score
A naked witness cannot lie A little body rhythm makes you High
A little body rhythm makes me high
A little body rhythm gets you high Let's f l y

Life is sex and sex is sin Come on baby Let's begin
Life is sex and sex is sin Come on lover Let's begin

Save me some space in your life Save me some space in your
Life is sex and sex is sin Come on baby Let's begin
Life is sex and sex is sin Come on lover Let's begin
Life is sex and sex is sin Come on baby Let's begin
Life is sex and sex is sin Come on baby Let's begin

The lonely sun sets in your eyes I will walk the night With you
Save me some space in your life Come on girl What can you Lose
I will walk the night with you We will walk Let me in




10. THE SALT OF JOY

Tears fall from hopeful eyes
The salt of joy will rise
We wait for peaceful years
As we hold back our fears

I wish you could see what I see
A place where we could be
Where words and thoughts are truly free
I wish you could feel what I feel
Love for everyone Falling from the sun, Falling from the Sun

Why do we bleed each other
Wear a smile while we break our brother's back
Someday we'll leave it all behind
And blow the devil's little mind
How can we lead each other
When we can't believe our brother's words
Someday we'll open our virgin eyes
And the Salt of Joy will rise

Hold on for better days
For peace of mind we'll pray
We hear the distand call
We'll watch their temples fall

I wish you could see what I see
A place where we could be
Where words and thoughts are free
I wish you could feel what I feel
Hate for all the crimes that poison precious minds, They Poison precious minds

Why do we bleed each other. . .

Tears fall from hopeful eyes
The Salt of Joy will rise




11. TAKE MY HAND

There's only one question that clouds my mind
How do I get your memories next to mine
Don't give me your answer Not right now
I wanna save this moment Save it somehow

Why don't you take my words you can use them as your own
Why don't you take my arm Why don't you take them home
Why don't you take my hand They can take away your pain
Why don't you take my words, take my arms, take my hands
Take 'em baby

Jump into the Love circle and tell me now
How do I get your lips in the round

Why don't you take my words. . .

Come with us The love circle waits Rest easy your thoughts
As you feel our venomous snake wrap around your spine
And rest ifs teeth in your widest mind

Why don't you take my hands. . .

Take my hands Take them home
Take my arms Take them home
To the Love circle




12. THE LONELY SUN

Hey You could be my dancer You could be the answer
When the lonely sun goes down
Hey You could be my river Make me shake and shiver
When the lonely sun goes down

Hey I cuold be your weakness Words when yours are useless
When the lonely sun goes down
Hey I could be the answer I could be your dancer
When the lonely sun goes down

You need me to heal you I need you to heal me
You need me to feel you I need you to feel me

When the hands of time slap your face
Hold on to me in this human race
When the summer's Heat is the only sound
Hold on to love when the lonely sun goes down

You need me to heal you I need you to heal me
You need me to feel you I need you to feel me

When the hands of time slap your face
Hold on to me in this human race
When the summer's Heat is the only sound
Hold on to love when the lonely sun goes down
When the hands of time slap your face
Hold on to me in this human race
When the winter's grip twists your fate
Hold on to love everybody It's much stronger than hate

Hold on. . when the Lonely Sun Goes down




13. THY WILL BE DONE

I want to talk about the leaders of our planet here
They have twe eyes, two arms, two legs, just like you and Me
Yet they're acting like high priests
I gues they're sharpening their teeth
Gettin' ready for the bige ole' money feast
Tension is high knowledge is low
God gave them the right to tell us how to fight Fuck no
There's things to be learned here It's time to burn fear
No one man is supposed to control another man
That message is clear
I'm not black and I don't pretend to be, but I understand Your
Fight for unconditional equality as for me
I'm tired of the lies an th the answeres I've been findin'
God I hope you she'd some light soon, it surely shall be Blindin'
To daydream properly takes unmeasurable amounts of Imaginary
Skill and if you hae too vivid of an imagination,
Why it can even get you killed believe it

Information, Education to our kingdom it comes
Aggression, Suppression Thy will be done
Information, Education to our kingdome it comes
Aggression, Suppression Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heavan

How 'bout the case of M. L. K. whose "I have a dream" M. L King
Got stepped on that day Story of Malcolm X
I'm not sure we got HIS story in our text
Jeses and JFK, all these people lookin' for a better way
Leonard Peltier, wanted his people to fly, got his wengs clipped
I wanna know why

No one man is supposed to control another man
That message is clear it gets clearer every year

We could be makin' love, not dollars and cents
Talkin' bout truth, not hollerin' nonsense
If you look hard you can find the clues
Read between the lines when you watch the news
Someonw is making coin off of our addictions
We want their names, no more fiction
They teach you to fight, but not how to feel
Turn off the tube brother and get real

Would the real son of god please stand up
". . . a small country many Americans had never even heard of. . " (G. Bush)




14. WAKE UP

Last night my TV screamed, I could swear it cried
I tried to hear your voice, how beautifully I tried
My rosary of tears poured into your sea
I opened my thirsty fists and got up off my knees
I love to hear the Christians singing underneath the Lonely sun
When the autumn skies fall down, tell me where are we Gonna run





It's not too late to wake up Tell the future we had enough
There is not much more to say 'cause we're all here Together
It's not too late to make up Sayin' sorry is not enough
Show me some truth and I will pray

It's not too late to wake up

Prejudice in the heart is poison in the hand
I see my soul is screamin' across the beaten land
Maybe you can make a movie, tell the children why
I'll be sittin' here singin' about truth baby
I'll sing about two lovers in the backseat gettin' high

It's not too late to wake up. . .

Next year I hear they're sellin' apartments on the moon
Last train to Mardi Gras and it's leavin' pretty soon
There's a wild dog loose in the station, come with me my Friend
We'll ride the rails into the sunset, cruise together in the end

It's not too late to wake up. . .
