Moonshiner 04:07
I've been a moonshiner for twenty long years I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer I go to some hollow and set up my still And if whiskey don't kill me I don't know what will I go to some barroom and I drink with my friends Where the women can't follow and see what I spent God bless them pretty women how I wish they was mine Their breath is as sweet as the dew on the vine Let me eat when I'm hungry let me drink when I'm dry Greenbacks when I'm hard up, sweet heaven when I die The whole world's a bottle, and life's just a dram When the bottle is empty, it sure ain't worth a damn

Hey man walking down that beat up street Hey man you know you got something I need Hey man driving I know you ain’t here for long Hey man can’t you hear my mournful song Don't you leave your cattle out for the night Or you better brace yourself for a terrible fight They'll come find you axe in hand And send you to some promised land Run away when push comes to shove Come move to the beat of the red-eyed dove Hey man don't put me away cause i speak my mind Hey man thinking aloud shouldn't be a crime Hey man don't shoot just be cause you're feeling scared Hey man don't kill them kids just because they dared Don't you send those whispers into the night Or you better brace yourself for a terrible fight They'll come find you pen and paper in hand And assign you to some forgotten land Run away when push comes to shove Come move to the beat of the red-eyed dove Run away when push comes to shove Come move to the beat of the red-eyed dove

Shoulder shaking chat chewing lurching in the street Drinking that Ethio-moonshine knocks you off your feet Hole in your head, your eyes are red But the time has come to go sing for your bread Is that just evaporation or an imminent conflagration It's a FIRE ON THE LINE FIRE ON THE LINE... Wire up the speakers that would drown millenium hall For a gig in a dive bar the size of a Merkato stall Load in the gear but something's wrong overhead Holum Amano, chegerellum until someone said Is that just evaporation or an imminent conflagration It's a FIRE ON THE LINE FIRE ON THE LINE...

Hurry Up 05:08
might be smooth might be rough a wind's a-coming that'll rip the devil's horns off might be round might be square gonna put fire in my bones and fly in on a wing and a prayer might be easy might be hard one way or another the ace of spades is in the cards so hurry up what you waiting for? get a move on brother before the reaper's at your door hurry up why you wasting time? stand up sister quit waiting for a sign might be tight might be loose gonna shake my head right out of that ole devil's noose might be light might be dark blind man always finds a way to make his mark might be sharp might be dull toss away that sword and write your own gospel so hurry up what you waiting for? get a move on brother before the reaper's at your door hurry up why you wasting time? stand up sister quit waiting for a sign

Now in the time of dying I don't want nobody to moan All I want my friends to do Is fold up my dying arms, my dying arms... Meet me Jesus, meet me Won't you meet me in the middle of the air And if these wings should fail me Lord Won't you meet me with another pair, another pair... Now in the time of dying I don't want nobody to moan All I want my friends to do Is fold up my dying arms So I can die easy, so I can die easy lord Jesus gonna make up my dyin' bed I'm goin' on down to the river Stick my sword up in the sand Gonna shout my trouble's over Lord I've done made it to the Promised Land I've done crossed over, yeah I've done crossed over Lord Jesus gonna make up my dyin' bed...

Misto Misto 07:22
In a world without sound you gotta hide so you can't be found Tonedreams so rich and clear, feel the love so near Wake to the silent noises, time to roam and restore the voices Come to grips with your fears Allow yourself to hear The music in your ears That gives you back your self So we must go, must go To find MistO-MistO the planet of sound that makes our world go round In a world of endless sales, you’ve gotta seek a different grail Board the ship of fools, an odyssey to find jes grew To an unknown destination, to catch the virus of exultation
