Track Name: mightyman, poorman
mighty man you fall like timber
and your axe will start the spark
faith in your own strength will leave you
lonely in the forest fire
paddle poor man up the river
there’s no place to lay your head
in the city park you slumber
speak these words into bread

may we gather at the table
give and take of what we need
rich and poor will come together
breaking, bleeding, loving feast
light the seven candle sticks
pass the salt to everyone
trim the blackened candlewicks
the door is open welcome

everyone was born to die
every day heart beats in time
breathe in breathe out gift of life
each of us the same design
Track Name: tiny seed
If I am a branch and we the tree
with our roots like fingers in the earth down deep
let us sow these seeds, humble, quiet
let our light break up this old concrete

when the river runs dry our sap with flow
from our feet to the neighbors house next door
an invasive love will start to show
that the buildings high is where the kids don’t grow

let this little tiny seed break apart this city
let the cracks in the bricks in the walls
let your light shine through
let this little tiny seed break apart this city
let us all gather by the water side
Track Name: jezebel
money keeps on knocking at my door
I aint worrying bout her no more
take my heat electricity
woman Im damned free
keep on knocking at my door

she has me starin in my grave
I’m working her slave wage
old abe lincoln freed the south
food stamps feed my hungry mouth
starin deep in to my grave

she can take my meat from my bones
agot a child that needs to grow
I’m a number so is he
she don’t care to set us free
take my meat from my bones
Track Name: denver blues
will I always wander never settle
there’s a battle in my soul, everyday I fight the war
will I always wander never settle

will I always lust never satisfy
there’s a sister on the curb who could be a friend of mine
will I always lust never satisfy

will I always long never belong
there’s a brother on the street who could help me sing this song
will I always long never belong

will I always dream never take action
we’re a messy affair of people but what better is there to invest in
will I always dream never take action
Track Name: time tree
as the tree stands in the earth
so do our bodies stand in time
Creator is planter, grower, reaper
He is life and light and shine

when I close my eyes
when I close my ears
I uproot myself from time
I determine my desires
determine my desires
yet the sun and moon aint mine
