Track Name: The backbone, flesh and the fruit
When I judge no one
When I walk and don’t run
Do only the things that I know I ought to do
May I find the backbone, the flesh and the fruit

When I remember to share
And put faith in my prayer
When it goes wrong trust I’ll understand it in time
May I find the backbone, the flesh and the fruit

And I take all these things to the river
To take ‘em way out to sea
I’m just trying my best to be free

When it’s all about me
And I’m too proud to see
When I think I know everything under the sun

May I find the backbone, the flesh and the fruit
Lord, May I find the backbone, the flesh and the fruit
Oh, May I find the backbone, the flesh and the fruit
Track Name: On and on
You came a long way
To find the right way
On and on and so it goes

And is this peace at last
Easy does it fast
On and on and so it goes

The wheel will stop when it’s done
To each his own everyone
The wheel will stop when it’s done
To each his own everyone

And what is this time
But you’re only time
On and on and so it goes

The last breath drawn
The new seed born
On and on and so it goes

The wheel will stop when it’s done
To each his own everyone
The wheel will stop when it’s done
To each his own everyone
The wheel will stop when it’s done
To each his own everyone
The wheel will stop when it’s done
To each his own everyone

You came a long way
To find the right way
On and on and so it goes
Track Name: There'll come Spring
Not long ago
Everything was gold
Yeah everything breathed gently

But oh of late
I can’t relate
And troubles seem to be a plenty

I’m all in my head
I’m turning in bed
And I can’t seem to make myself steady

So I throw my arms up to the King
Knowing things they’ll turn around
There’ll come Spring
If I turn the way of my will back to yours

And oh come on
I’m here in song
And the absence of you defeats me
Eclipsed is the light
And there’s always a fight
Just to see things more clearly
I guess some get strong
And some pass on
Having never really known peace really

So I throw up my arms up to the King
Knowing things they’ll turn around
There’ll come Spring
I turn the way of my will back to yours
I turn the way of my will back to yours
Track Name: Some time alone
All rhythm gone from bone
You long to be alone
Fire in your eyes
For the world of compromise
And when all is said and done
You’re always on the run
From the loneliness inside
The fear you try to hide

You just need some time alone
You just need some time alone

You can drink till you fall down
To drown out the sound
But the voices in your head
Are still waltzing with the dead
And who do you beseech
When all’s out of reach
But someone deep inside
That sleeps beyond the pride

You just need some time alone
Just need some time alone

Just need some time alone
Just need some time alone..
Track Name: Numb
Despising fact and rule of thumb
Caution to the wind I follow some
Blind pride makes hollow toys
Turn your heart to stone
I don’t wanna be no hollow toy
All logic and reason just makes me numb

Ah civilized no we are not
So self consumed inside our lot
Blind pride makes hollow toys
Turn your heart to stone
I don’t wanna be no hollow toy
All logic and reason just makes me numb

Numb when my brother and sister cry
Numb to your sacred day
Numb when the love is in your eyes
Help me change on my way
Oh gotta change my way

So all that’s wrong begins in me
Lord give me the strength that I might see
That blind pride makes hollow toys
And it’ll turn the heart to stone
I don’t wanna be no hollow toy
All logic and reason just makes me…

Blind pride makes hollow toys
And it’ll turn the heart to stone
I don’t wanna be no hollow toy
All logic and reason just makes me numb
Track Name: The other side
Pleasure won’t come out to play
It’s seen all it wants of the day
Heartless and wounded in your mind
When nothing rings true
But the big bold bells of the blue
And you don’t care for anything no more

Hush don’t you run
Look to the sun
Take it to the other side
From the empty wheel
To the child inside
Who’ll keep it real
Live for the here and now
Come on take a bow
You were never alone

Train of thought derailed
Wind caught all the sail
Dragged down to the depths of violet town
Oh Lord you’re the anchor
When the blind lead the blind
Can’t find the way onto the shore

Hush don’t you run
Look to the sun
Take it to the other side
From the empty wheel
To the child inside
Who’ll keep it real
Live for the here and now
Come on take a bow
You were never alone

Take it to the other side
From the empty wheel
To the child inside
Who’ll keep it real
Live for the here and now
Come on take a bow
You were never alone
