Track Name: Slave Song
Slave Song:

Heat from the master and food from his table but chains when the master is gone.
I must admit I dream of leaving this place 'cross the bridge of a soft lonesome song.

Hey there how long? ... will we wait now how long? ... will we wait in the wings till we run?
Hey there how long? ... will we wait now how long? ... 'till master finds servant is gone?

Birds will sing... and bells ring... a choir will sing, "Hurry, hurry home! And don't be late! For heaven's sake! We got a long way to go!"

Howlin' at the house again when you're deep in the hole that you dug.
Back bent and broke at the end of the day you've been loving that same old one.

Hey there how long? ... will I be waiting how long? ... till the waiting is over and done?

Hey there how long? ... will I be waiting how long? ... till the waiting is over and done?

Birds will sing... and bells ring... a choir will sing, "Hurry, hurry home! And don't be late! For heaven's sake! We got a long way to go!"

I was the lucky one, when I came home to you.
I was the lucky one, when I came ramblin' through.
They say that, "No more the servant child, my days of slavin' are through! Done left the master's house to come home to make love to you."

Heat of the sun and it's thousand eyes, well it filled up his pockets with lead.
The pitch of the road and it's thousand miles, "I won't rest till the master is dead!"
"I won't rest till the master is dead!" well he cried, "He's fucked with us for too long."
See the blood in his tears when he cried?
From there servant walks on alone.

Hey, well, don't you know?

The sky won't help, the gods won't rest, there aint no helping in the end.
To get you on and through this time and through the trial again.
Maybe you and I will find some hope and comfort in the end.
Until that day the bough will sway gently on the wind.
Track Name: MILES AWAY *BRAND NEW SONG*
Miles Away.

If I... If I were a better man... I'd tell you to hold your cards just as close as you can.
'Cause oh how tears they fall yet they still hold on.

Then your words break back into my heart... from miles away and they hold me better than they do today.

Bitter rain... it came and it fell on my hungry heart... told me not to walk, but to run from the start.
Spent all my life walking away, oh with never no thought where I've been.
How far have I been?

Then your words break back into my heart, from miles away, seemed so much better than they do today.

Spent all my life walking away, oh with never no thought where I been.
How far have I been?

Then your words break back into my heart, from miles away, and troubles that seemed so much bigger than they do today.
Track Name: AN NUR *BRAND NEW SONG*
An Nur.

You give it all you can. You give it for me all my love. You give it for me, all you can.

Love, if you get on with me, or you get on alone, or you get on with me, if you get on home, or if you get on with me, if you get on alone, or if you get on with me, if you get on home.

Wait until it's almost gone... wait until it's almost gone... give it for me all my love, give it for me all you can.

Wait until it's almost gone... give until it's almost gone... then go and give it for me all my love, give it for me all you can.

Aw, if you get on with me, or you get on alone, or you get on with me, if you get on home, or if you get on with me, if you get on alone, or if you get on with me, if you get on home.
Track Name: SO TIRED *BRAND NEW SONG*
So Tired.

I can feel, what it's like to be looking at you... and now I can steal, so much more than I own.
I want you to know... girl I can deal, now that we've found so much more, than we could ever control.

But I'm so tired... all I need is you to take me back home.
Well, I'm so tired, don't leave me alone.

I got crooked then straight, in the backseat on the way to a place, well, they said it would be so great...
And now I can't get away.

Well, I'm so tired... all I need is you to take me back home.
Well, I'm so tired, don't leave me alone.

It's like all I ever said to you, I said it in a dream, site unseen, along with everything we mean but were afraid to walk through anyway.
Track Name: The Hatchetman/Charlie Jackie Freedom Pride
The Hatchetman.

He came a walking around, cool and cut up from a town without mercy.
He came a stalking around, cool and cut up from a town without mercy.

And I paid him no mind babe, as he was background and my life kept on turning.
But he stayed close behind me, and all around me my life kept on burning.

Eeee yo, eee yow, eee yo, eee yow.

Dear god grant me this day... and don't take my head.
Dear god grant me this day... don't ever forget what I said.
That, "I did what I did, there was nothing else left and for no higher crime will I pay."

You got your eyes on him, You got your eyes on him, You got your eyes on him, You got your eyes on him.

I can see him in the barroom now, drunken eyes, drunk in gin.
He had a thousand scars upon him, of every tiny embrace.
He had those cuts on his hands, cuts on his face, nobody else feels his gaze.

C'mon Eeee yo, eee yow, eee yo, eee yow.

Dear god grant me this day... and don't take my head.
Dear god grant me this day... don't ever forget what I said.
That, "I did what I did there was nothing else left and for no higher crime will I pay."

I don't know just what I did to deserve this, hatchet swings hatchet high hatchet low.
And his grip tightens, and his arms raisin', no place that's left we could go.

Boy before you see him boy we got to go, boy before you see him boy we got to go, boy before you see him boy we got to go, boy before you see him boy we got to go.

A better life, a better love, gotta get out.
A better life, a better love, gotta get out.


Charlie Jackie Freedom Pride:

I'm Indian Warrior King, she's my warrior bride.
Say, "What's my name?" Charlie Jackie Freedom Pride.

A great buffalo hunt, well tomorrow I ride, with the gods up above me and a spear at my side.
Well the nation depends, for them I provide, I will drag back that mighty beast... Charlie Jackie Freedom Pride.

I just hope it ain't mine, when they cut it off slow.

Spirit of the wind from a long time ago came grabbed up this poor aching heart of mine.
Sat back in chair and with might he declared and his words came to me right on time.

He said, "If nobodies home, well lay the beat on down."
He said, "If you're alone, lay the beat on down."
"And if they fuck with your soul, lay the beat on down."
"If nobody knows, just lay the beat on down."

I leave on the south side of town, work too many a 9 to 5, come home to hungry wife and a kid, but never a tear in my mind.

It's ok, it's alright. It's ok, it's alright. It's ok, it's alright. It's ok, it's alright.

My word to my god, "Hunt strong, hunt slow."
My word to my god, "Lay a path wherever you go."

A great buffalo hunt. A great Buffalo hunt. A great Buffalo hunt. A great Buffalo hunt.

I can't take this, can't take it anymore. I can't take this, can't take it anymore. I can't take this, can't take it anymore. I can't take this, can't take it anymore.

'Cause I'm Indian Warrior King, she's my warrior bride.
I will drag back that might beast... Charlie Jackie Freedom Pride.
