I gotta get my kin away from here Situation's gone past all my worst fears Authorities have flipped, the work's all gone Gotta get my kin away Better get our stuff together no delay Nothing for us to return to back home anyway Seems the whole damn country's gone down the chute Better get our stuff together Something on the horizon looking real Soon hanging our hats on some new deal Seems the whole damn country's gone down the chute Better get our stuff together Feverishly forging out the plan Construction of a better land I gotta get my kin away from here Situation's gone past all my worst fears Tired folk holding out tired hands I gotta get my kin away I gotta get my kin away I gotta get my kin away from here

Abandoned 04:39
There's peace in the valley There's nobody here Been this way For many a year I cross the bridge Hear birds sing And the hilltop invites No one to nothing Abandoned Out of mind Stuck in their ways Those left behind Abandoned For all to reclaim Had its time, never again I'm growing old I try to keep up But I lag behind With a half empty cup There's a house Still looks the way It was abandoned They took nothing away Abandoned Out of mind Stuck in their ways Those left behind Abandoned For all to reclaim Had it's time, never again Abandoned Out of mind Stuck in their ways Those left behind Abandoned For all to reclaim Had its time, never again Had its time, never again There's a tin tabernacle And an old wooden school Carpenter's workshop And a shed full of tools Everywhere I look All seems to say Nice of you to call Now be on your way Abandoned Out of mind Stuck in their ways Those left behind Abandoned For all to reclaim Had it's time, never again Abandoned Out of mind Stuck in their ways Those left behind Abandoned For all to reclaim Had its time, never again Had its time, never again

As Lovers Go 04:26
Fine lines and narrow pathways Rains old wives and sticks Misty veils and shadow Dancing in It's that quiet somewhere That riot on skid row After all we're doing alright As lovers go It's that moment braking time That something deeper in The fear of dead air Blowing in So I stroll through the blossom That unexpected snow Been reviewed, we're doing alright As lovers go Outskirts of the day Hinterland nowhere Lotsa action Wonderful time Wish you were here Outskirts of the day Hinterland nowhere Lotsa action Wonderful time Wish you were here Now I'm cashing in my mantra 'Cos I like the way it flows Just to say we're doing ok As lovers go All said and done, we're doing alright As lovers go After all we're doing alright As lovers go As lovers go As lovers go As lovers go

Little fish, great big pond Little patch, don't look beyond World is reeling, waving wands Are they mistaken? Little somewhere to rest my head When it's gone, South Road ahead What are they taking? Weird wonders every brow Old crow laughing, wake of plough Hypertensions, holy rows My sides are aching There's a train stuck in a far out station Nothing doing, ain't moving along Little somewhere to rest my head When it's gone, South Road ahead What are they taking? Had the feeling it should be more Than it is, well don't get sore It's all our making, all we've done As it is, as it was before People sigh and people weep Break backs on one-way streets Cream elite, how do they sleep? All their hip shaking There's a train stuck in a far out station Nothing doing, ain't moving along Little somewhere to rest my head When it's gone, South Road ahead Can't help feeling a twinge of dread What are they taking?

Fair Winds 03:34
Always remember I dream of you Good times never blue Days we laugh, days we smile Days we sail even miles When fair winds blow Always remember, always sing Joy you brought and joy you bring Days of purpose, days of style Days we sail even miles When fair winds blow Days we sail even miles When fair winds blow You sweet summer and all in bloom You're a warmth that fills every wintered room Loyal companion and a dear friend And a song that will play until the end Always remember, care for you Take the time to help you through Days of hope and days worthwhile Days we sail even miles When fair winds blow I dream of you Days we sail even miles When fair winds blow

Got to get the old feel back Got to plant my feet in the soil Turning me inside out Shouted down by holy rollers Oh, what's the deal? Faces I've come to know In the windows of this travelling show Right to real Rolling out the numbers Hoping that they all might catch and grow Playing the field If I were, if I were a rabbit You know I'd run You know I'd run too If I were, if I were a rabbit You know I'd run You know I'd run too Got to get the old feel back I hope it's not too torn and frayed Right to real Two steps forward Mac And you're in on the act Right to real If I were, if I were a rabbit You know I'd run You know I'd run too If I were, if I were a rabbit You know I'd run You know I'd run too Got to get the old feel back Got to plant my feet in the soil Turning me inside out Shouted down by holy rollers Oh, what's the deal? Got to get the old feel back Got to plant my feet in the soil Right to real

It's an easy roll poverty Marianne and me Got the bluest sky Marianne and I I don't care As long as we're a pair Marianne and me Marianne and I One time I would smile and restrain Now we're a long way from the London rain So we built something new He was no good everybody knew Don't give a damn About your married man Marianne and me Marianne and I Blending like all the colours of the sea You and I making covert memories The scent of thyme comes rolling Down to us by the waterside Of this Aegean isle Now everybody agrees Marianne and me Sweetest light in our eyes Marianne and I I don't care As long as we're a pair Marianne and me Marianne and I Marianne and me Marianne and I Marianne and me Marianne and I

Deep in the redwood Beauty to behold Find me a place to sit down Good medication Let the day unfold No better place that I've found Long time brother Cross this space Peace pipe I'm offering you Pull up some dust there Take the weight off Good meditation The owls don't give a hoot My face like a weathered boot No better place that I've found Pull up some dust there Take the weight off Good meditation Deep in the redwood Moment to moment Living in the now Good medication In the most natural way Don't drag the past in tow Long time brother Cross this space Peace pipe I'm offering you Lookee here Settle down Good meditation The owls don't give a hoot My face like a weathered boot No better place that I've found Lookee here Settle down Good meditation Bury me, bury me, oh bury me with this view Deep in the redwood Beauty to behold Good meditation The owls don't give a hoot My face like a weathered boot No better place that I've found Deep in the redwood Beauty to behold Good meditation Good meditation Good meditation

Long Grain 04:52
Long Grain pedals steel guitar It's the sound of the swirling mist Rolling 'cross the morning bay And up over the cliffs Over the camp of creek dwellers Muttering their rusted words Over the seaside second homers That prance about like birds Long Grain drift that slide Don't give a shit about all of this Here in the Bikers' Bar Set in stone heavy rockers Emptiness of air guitar A whole wide universe reflecting In rows of polished chrome Hogs that jostled at the trough Now backfiring their way home Long Grain drift that slide And aim, aim it at the mic again All those songs I've learnt to like Long Grain drift that slide Mellow park meandering Summoning up a song Industrial hum unnoticed 'Til it stops or goes all wrong Shovelling through the dirt Striking a lode of gold Taken us from the hard shoulder To the middle of the road From the hard hard shoulder Hard shoulder, to the middle of the road Long Grain drift that slide And aim, aim it at the mic again All those songs I've learnt to like Long Grain drift that slide Shovelling through the dirt Striking a lode of gold From the hard hard shoulder To the middle of the road Shovelling through the dirt Striking a lode of gold

Should really stop There's grit in my shoe But I keep going Stops me thinking of you That smile in your eyes And the way that you talk The flow of your hair When you walk I'm speckled like a thrush From the spray and the dirt Kicked up by traffic Through to my shirt I croak like a raven But I can't come through With the words I wrote for you I hear myself speaking I wish I was dead Far too many things I should have said To you instead To you That I suspect you were expecting me to Think I've walked it off Best I return It's all gone countryside Feeling my legs burn Through yellow farm fields And over old sunken roads Zip up my jacket And keep out the cold I hear myself speaking I wish I was dead Far too many things I should have said To you instead To you That I suspect you were expecting me to I hear myself speaking I wish I was dead Far too many things I should have said To you instead To you That I suspect you were expecting me to Should really stop There's grit in my shoe
