ROAD OF FREEDOM

On the road of freedom
tree's and grass are growing
in the air birds are singing
and Iím down here dreaming
wondering if the song is changing
or if Iím just falling behind

Should I go left
or should I go right
either way I donít mind really
I just want to see the light

Some people say we are born to die
I just think its time to fly .
 

I WANT TO BE FREE

I'm going to climb up that mountain
I'm going to set my self free

Oh, why can't you see
I don't want no more wars between you and me

Lets get a ticket baby
Lets ride to the sea

Oh, why can't you see
Oh, why can't you see
I just want us to be free

Peace of mind is what we need to find
But the key is just down that road you can't see

Oh, why can't you see
I don't want no more wars between you and me

Oh, why can't you see
I just want us to be free
 

LEAVE IT TO THE MOVIES

This is what's wrong with the world
this is why we all see things so blurred
murder, bombs, tear gas, and gun's
they can't give you life
so leave it to the movies

Women giving themselves to every man
treating themselves like a empty can
std's, teen pregnancy, low self esteem
this is not life
so leave it to the movies

Doing drugs to free your mind
you have forgot that they ain't always kind
heroin, crack, speed, and smack
that's a one way ticket to a life of gone off the track
so leave it to the movies

Violence in a class room
little bobby is out because they found a tank in his locker
Robbery, rape, abuse, and manslaughter
that's a good way to find your self in a life full of bad karma
so leave it to the movies
 

ALL I NEEDED WAS A 25TH HOUR

Called her up on a Thursday night
See if she wanted to play

She's a pretty Red Haired lady
Got pretty eyes that just seem to shine

Ain't that funny how some one
just makes the night right

She can take away my teenage blues
She can do that oh yeah take away my teenage blues

Katie likes my songs, loves my poems
likes my songs and loves my poems

Held her hand yeah man it felt so right
I think that's something that was beyond the air that night

I can only hope she feels the same
Girl like her doesn't deserve any pain

She deserves to live in the wind
Her vibes are the same as a Michigan Summer night

I knew it was late
I didn't want to go

I didn't care about tomorrow
All I could have asked for was a 25th hour on that Thursday
 
 
 

COMING OUT FROM BEHIND MY WALL

My world is opening

The light's are back on
Time may finally be on my side

I love you baby
I love you more than forever and more

Some days I hide behind my wall
Your the light that shows me the door
 

DON'T HAVE A CLUE

18 years of my life gone and I still don't have a clue
don't have a clue of what I want to do
don't have a clue of where I want to go
don't have a clue what I want to show
don't have a clue of what I want to be
don't have a clue of what I want to see
don't have a clue what it is to be free
don't have a clue of what love means to me
don't have a clue of what to do with my life
don't have a clue of where to go with my life
don't have a clue of how to spell the word I wanted to spell
don't have a clue how to make myself happy
kinda got a clue I need some help to make it happen
kinda got a clue I need some one to make it happen
kinda got a clue I need to help someone help me
kinda got a clue how to write a song
kinda got a clue how to play a guitar
kinda got a clue how to jam with a one man band
kinda got a clue how to make a girl smile
ain't got a clue how to get that girl
ain't got a clue how to make my self smile
 

Far away
 

Putting me down

Bringing me down

Never helping me turn my life around

asking me why

Thinking I'm just living a lie

Maybe its just time to fly

I got to get away some day

I'll go away and maybe baby

Far away

I'll find me another sunny day
 

FEELING DOWN

You're feeling down
Feeling like your face was meant to have a frown
Better pack them bags and leave town

But dig this
ain't no one way ticket gonna change your life around
there ain't no peace in the words you speak

no, no
you gotta go back to the place
go on back to the place that gave you that lonely face
you gotta change that

sky's look blue
but so do you
what happened to the life you grew in your head

No more smiles, no more pretty flowers
gotta sell your clothes to live one more day in this world

well hey hey
tomorrow is a new day?
ain't that what they all say?
 

LET ME SEE YOU SMILE

Look now you might miss it
the world is crying

open your ears so you can here it
the world is crying

Speak up now you may never get a chance to be herd
For the world is crying

Put out your hands feel the tears
come on now the world is crying

Open up your eyes
see the sunny sky's

let me see you smile
we can walk the next thousand miles
just let me see you smile
 

LOST WITH OUT LOVE

Lost with out love
and all my song's have been sung

Tree's are changin' color's in the light of the sun
but the peace in my heart has not yet begun

There will be peace when your time has come .
 
 

LOST WITH OUT LOVE
Part 2
 

Here comes that feeling again
Depression in my mind is setting in
Lost with out love, I have wrote about it before
it digs in me right down to the core

Lets just be friends, Lets spare the expense
is it something about me or all just a coincidence?
I think I'd rather get hurt in the long run
than be hurt all the time always looking for fun

I'm not looking for just sex and no love
I'm looking for some one to talk to some one who fits me like a glove
I don't need all these drugs in my mind
but they never say Casey I'm not your type

I need a smart girl not the slutty type
I need a nice girl some one who likes the way I write
I don't know what it is about me that know one wants to love
I know I'm not all that but my heart is like a dove

I can't just bring myself to flat out ask a girl out
I try and write songs but she don't know what its about
I don't want to loose a friend by just letting my feelings out
but I don't want to be in pain just because I can't figure any of this out --
 

MUSIC MAN

(dedicated to Bob Dylan)

Music , Music, Music man
Play me a song as I ride in this cosmic van

I ride down the road
smoking weed and feeling good

You take me to another land
when you play with your one man band

Go over there past the grand stand
see the music man jam

Music , Music, Music man
Play me a song when the world will just not understand

Why don't you come have a drink with me
ill find a boat so you don't have to swim

Take me away to a better place
Show me the lady with the pretty face

You said the lady on 6th street was much to white
by the time I got to 7th I said hey man your right

Music, Music, Music man
Play me a song as I ride in this cosmic van

Help me find Peace of mind
Let me fly right through the time

Watch the road melt away
see the lights show me the way

Hear the waves hit the shore
Look at my life sit down, watch it like a show

Music, Music, Music man
when will it be my turn to jam
 
 

MY HEAD FULL OF ACID

Well I went to bed late last evening with a wine glass in my hand and some acid
in my head

I didn't know if this life was real
or all just pretend

It could have been a dream I don't know where I have been,

Who knows, Who knows, Who knows where the hell I have been

I could have been to space or some other cosmic place

Time seemed to stop we all need a little more pot

Well like I said I didn't know if the life was real , or if it was all just
pretend

It could have been a dream , I don't know where I have been
 
 

SING FOR ME

Join together now
Sing for love
Sing for the white dove's
Sing for your children
sing for the pilgrim
that sailed his way to your world
Sing for peace
Sing for light
Sing for all the summer nights
Sing for today
And for all the ones who say good day
Sing for me
Ill sing for you
Sing for yourself
The one who puts a smile on my face
 

THINK OF THE COST

On days that I am down
I look to the sun
to maybe find out where I have come from

When minds are full of lies
I prey that I will always try
To touch some peace of mind

Always count the cost
your actions always have dust
Don't count the days until your end

Out of all the ways
to live out your days
peace is the way
to shine some light on your day

So I say to you
go help out your friend
Don't worry about the end

So Always count the cost
your actions always have dust
 
 
 
 

Well I can't tell you, The reason why
No, No I can't tell you, The reason why my mind gets scrabbled

Don't let it throw you, I can still see the light
its just no money can buy me peace of mind

We all swim in a bottle and smoke joints and trip
but that only helps escape

I can sing you a glad song
or I can sing a sad song
but I can't tell you for how long

Some people ask me, what's love mean to you?
so I look to the ground and then get pulled down

Well I can't tell you the reason why
love ain't found me I ain't going to lie

you just have to look at history to see
how hard it is to be free

I can sing you a glad song
or I can sing a sad song
but I can't tell you for how long
 

WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE PURPLE SQUIRREL

Walls coming down
my god lights melting around me
a truck passes me but stays there for 3 or 4 more seconds
birds talking
airplanes swimming

Tell me baby
tell me what it is
am I going insane

People Don't speak but my dog will
Holes in the sky where butterfly's sing
and what's the deal with the purple squirrel
do do da da now how is the cow
she still have cosmic cheese?

Tell me baby
tell me what it is
Am I going insane

Told me to here the lights
told me to see the music
all I see is you and that damn koala bear drinking tea
how far did you want me to see
can it possibly be?

Tell me baby
tell me what it is
am I going insane

I tell myself I'm not
but the man in me says ha ha I'm not you are
he says I can't be free
say I should swim to the sea
says I should sit on the moon

Tell me baby
tell me what it is
am I going insane
 
 

WHY? WHEN?

You say I seem real lazy
but you know it can't really be like that
you say the world will understand
but can't you see the people only watch from the grandstand
I wish you could just be with me free as the sea

Why do you say your waiting for world war three
why would you wait for the day you can never be free
when you walk down the street why do you seem so uptight
can't you see your just being part of the problem you may just fade away into
the night

When you see the stars what do you really see
it goes beyond the light it could just be new life
When you swim don't you notice your floating on the world
or wont you just not forget about all your problems for just one time

YOU GO YOUR WAY AND I'LL STAY BEHIND

You go your way and ill stay behind
The past wont go away you can only change your mind

Running away from every day
wont help you change your evil way's

You waste your time
Just remember I can't give ya any of mine

I'm trying to live out my dreams
But the sky always seems the same

You go your way and ill stay behind
Singing some blues and brushing away my tears

Some say baby change your ways
id say baby come help me change my day

The sun may go down
And the clouds may come rolling our way

Lets not let it get to us
But that's just a silly thing to say

You go your way and ill stay behind
I'll always love ya I hope some day you will be mine
