Lyrics From This Album

Arizona's Calling Me

Had to put my boots on today
Make a man feel a different way
Had to sharpen a knife or two
Tenache, I sure miss you
I miss the very touch of you
By our secret rendezvous
By your side I'm Nature's son
By your breast all life is one
I'm home with you

Arizona's calling me
Tired of livin' by the sea
Those cactus thorns are life to me

Arizona sky so blue
Spirit's gift of love to you
Open space to seek the buffalo's face

Arizona tortoise shell
I feel the warmth of pure love's bell
I breathe your air and all is well

The ocean's nice but can't see no life
I want to be where the cat runs free
I want to see the mountain tree
Run through the desert like the Indian in me
I want to feel the burning sun
Make you seek the spirit one
Arizona Navajo
Know they got a sacred home
Apache voices calling me
Come on home to a warm wick-ee-up-ee
That's home to me

Arizona eagle's wings
I hear the lovely white dove sing
Running creek joins in rhyme--love's chime--love's rhyme--love's chime--love rhyme

I know the west wind will blow me there
I'll trust in love and have no fear
We know where we belong
First I'll sing the world your song
Of love that's free

Arizona's calling me
Pack your bags come visit me
You'll find you'll walk a different time--love's rhyme--love's chime--love's rhyme--love's chime

eeya - eeya - eeya

Holy City

Holy City...

You're a voice in the wind in the breeze
A voice in the wind in the breeze
You're a voice in the wind in the trees
A voice in the wind in the trees

We've got the inside medicine to end the inside war
The choice between right and wrong to make the spirit soar
And all the grandmothers of all time can rest assured
The tender loving hand of her spirit will guide the soul

Just do unto others as you'd have them do to you...

Love is something that must guide you to all good things
The dance of life inside you that makes your heart to sing
And all the grandfathers who ever gave a meal
Will sit around the table of those seeds that are real
And we can live together inside the holy walls
The fruits of his spirit feeds the children of the call
And every dream and vision held in the doubt of frost
Will manifest in hope that was never really lost

Just do unto others as you'd have them do to you...

Holy City...

You're a voice in the wind in the breeze
A voice in the wind in the breeze
You're a voice in the wind in the trees
A voice in the wind in the trees

Holy City...

Morning Song

Think I'll write a morning song, it's been so long, since I felt this way
Think I'll write a morning song, it's been so long, since I've had a morning say
Think I'll write a morning song, for everyone to hum and sing along

Hello Mr. Morning, why do I wait so late to say, "Hello"?
Hello Mrs. Morning, I need a warm sweet hug before I go
Hello Mr. Cloud, now you're allowed to wash away my fears
Hello Mr. Son, how everyone loves your light throughout the years

Oh, how wonderful to know
The sky's a mistletoe
Where morning love does grow
And everybody knows

What such peace
You give morning love
You give me a rainy day to write a beautiful song
And you give me a sunny day to share love along life's highway

La la la la la....

Oh My Niann

Oh My Niann, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Niann, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Niann, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
I'd probably tried a lesser way and missed that heavenly bliss
Oh My Alcyone, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Alcyone, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Alcyone, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
I'd probably tried a lesser way and missed that heavenly bliss
Oh My Sonta-An, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Sonta-An, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Sonta-An, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
I'd probably tried a lesser way and missed that heavenly bliss
Oh My Amadon if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Amadon, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Amadon, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
I'd probably tried a lesser way and missed that heavenly bliss
Oh My Mother if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Mother, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Mother, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
I'd probably tried a lesser way and missed that heavenly kiss
Oh My Father if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Father, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
Oh My Father, if I knew it was gonna be so hard
I'd probably tried a lesser way and missed that heavenly kick

The Freedom Song

Throughout the sad history the braveheart stood in the way
Of the noble lords in pompous dress who had the evil say
And all the families of the meek who seek to live and love in peace
Can not keep what belongs to them, the nobles want their fleece
And those who know the pain and loss of those who rule in sin
Must join together hand in hand until all justice wins

And I see the spark of Freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the hope of Freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the light of Freedom in their eye
Jumbe'

Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ken Saro-Wiwa
Ken Saro-Wiwa, oh Wiwa, oh Wiwa
Jumbe' Saro-Wiwa

And good men run the gauntlet to try the righteous rule
While others of the lesser code make them out a fool
And those that have the power can wear the whitest robes
While the meek and truly humble can only sing life's odes

And I see the spark of Freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the hope of Freedom in their eye
Yes, I see the light of Freedom in their eye
Jumbe'

Ken Saro-Wiwa, Ken Saro-Wiwa
Ken Saro-Wiwa, oh Wiwa, oh Wiwa
Jumbe' Saro-Wiwa

The Great American Dream

Hey Mr. America, gee but your macho strong
So hard and tough make you a man
There's nothing that you can't do, no task too hard for you
You've got that Great America Dream...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Hey Miss America, gee but you're getting old
Your crown of beauty is long gone
No one to look at you, there's nothing left for you to do
You've lost your Great American Dream...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Then there's that debutante, waving her magic wand
Ask any wish and daddy comes through
Ride on your yacht today, send me to UCLA
And you just know Prince Charming he'll come along
You've got that Great American Dream...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Then there's that ghetto lad, wearning his one basketball pad
One way out of that low life for you
That scholarship calls to you, there's nothing else that you can do
You've got that Great American Dream....

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Then there's that religious man, looking holy as he can
Top hat and tails of self-righteousnes
Leading blind sheep astray, they follow whatever that man say
Having a form of self-godliness
But denying the true one up above
They've lost that true American Dream...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

America, America, God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good, with brotherhood from sea to shining sea

Wake Up America

Wake Up America
The enemy's already here
It's living inside you
The darkness of Dio
Manifesting the evil self will

Wake Up America
They're changing the law their own way
They say good is evil and evil is good
And children grow up quite decieved

Oh little sheep, you've gone astray
Just how blind you've got to be
Oh little sheep, you've gone astray
Just how blind you've got to be
Now who is blind but my servant
Or so deaf but my messenger
Now who is blind but my servant
Or so deaf but my messenger

Wake Up America
They said that they'd beat us within
They feed us the sorcery that destroys our minds
And banned all drugs in their own hands

Wake Up America
They've taken our real strength away
Children used to pray in the schools
Now they O.D. there instead

My Country Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty...
Gone, Gone, Gone

Wish Angel Sandman

Hello ocean lady, lying in the sand
Ask one wish I'll grant you, to take back to the land
'Cause I'm your Wish Angel Sandman
Hello ocean lady, lying in the sun
Think it over carefully, 'cause you only have one
One, One, One
Yes, my friend, you've got to believe
That I'm your Wish Angel Sandman

You've been looking up some time now at the sky which is my floor
Felt the warmth of your heart, your thoughts knocked upon my stars' door
I was sent down by hopes artist who painted your dreams today
On a canvas in a Kingdom of Love that's yours today

But, my friend, you've got to believe
That I'm your Wish Angel Sandman
Never fear, Heaven's so near

Looking for Prince Charming in a world that's just not lit
And if by chance you find him, who's gonna make the slipper fit?
Trying to climb a mountain gonna reach the summit top
And if you just might get there you'll find it's not what you want at all

You just have to wish on -- wish on me

Love love love love love lovely lady, wish on me...
