Lyrics[edit]

  • I'm not scared of dying
    And I, don't really care
    If it' s peace you find in dying
    Well then, let the time be near.
    • "And When I Die"
  • My troubles are many
    They're deep as a well
    I swear there ain't no Heaven
    And I pray there ain't no hell
    But I'll never know by living
    only my dying will tell.
    And when I die
    and when I'm gone
    There'll be, one child born
    And a world to carry on, to carry on.
    • "And When I Die"
  • Give me my freedom for as long as I be
    All I ask of livin' is to have no chains on me
    All I ask of livin' is to have no chains on me
    And all I ask of dyin' is to go naturally...
    And when I die, and when I'm gone
    There'll be one child born, in our world
    To carry on, to carry on...
    • "And When I Die"
  • I was raised on the good book Jesus
    Till I read between the lines
    Now I don't believe I ever wanna see the morning
    • "Stoney End"
  • You can see the walls roar
    See your brains on the floor
    Become God
    Become cripple
    Become funky
    • "Poverty Train"
  • If you love me true
    And if you love me true
    I'll spend my life with you
    And Timer
    You're a jigsaw, Timer
    • "Timer"
  • Emily
    And her love to be
    Carved in a heart
    On a berry tree
    But it's only a little farewell lovespell
    Time to design a woman
    • "Emily"
  • So he swears he'll mever marry
    Says that cuddles are a curse
    Just tell him plain
    You're on the next train
    If love don't get you first
    • "Time and Love"
  • I lost my eyes
    In east wind skies
    Here's where I've cried
    Where I've tried
    Where God and the Tendaberry rise
    Where Quakers and revolutionaries
    Join for life
    • "New York Tendaberry"
  • He got his mean streak from the gutter
    Got his kindness from God
    • "Blackpatch"
  • I saw a man take a needleful of hard drug
    And die slow
    • "Been On A Train"
  • She said
    "I'm young enough
    I'm old enough
    In the city machine
    Where industries
    Fill the fish full of mercury"
    • "Money"
  • Sage's light
    Oh and Edison
    He made two sparks ignite
    All you do
    It's a scientific chain reaction
    • "Light" (Pop's Principle)
  • They say a woman's place
    Is to wait and serve
    Under the veil
    Submissive and dear
    But I think my place
    Is in a ship from space
    To carry me
    The hell out of here.
