Another Destination


"Inside"
Saw you in the rain
Or was that you dyiní for a line, Ďnother line
Drowniní in the street, broken past
With your love of God, yeah, yeah

Watch the Wheel, try to ease the pain
Evictiní time, a cryiní shame
Live the life of a stranger

Watch the fields, turn and fade away
Tainting light of future days
Itís alright, Iíve seen a stranger

Oh Ė Is it you or is it me
Inside those eyes

Fall into the drain
Searchiní for those years that passed you by
Reasons why
Ever watched the endless sea or felt some fear
For your wasted time, yeah, yeah

Sacred words never heard
Again by fools walking that fine line
Their curse is silent danger

As the fight comes to an end
The darkness begins to fade
Will innocence pass through danger

Oh Ė Is it you or is it me
Inside those eyes I can see

"Resurrection Time"
Iíve walked down the road
That led me to a dead end
Talked into the eyes of many who werenít there

Iíve heard so many lies
That I almost saw their truth

Iíve known a spirit wondering lonely
As he passed on through the room
We were talkiní about the future

Fightiní to begin
Another destination

Well, I held on as long as I could
So long, Iím leaviní for good
Come on, step inside - itís resurrection time
Time to unwind - resurrection time

Iíve tried to find an answer
For the ones out in the street
Iíve tried to see a reason
For the killing side of greed

Weíre talkiní about the future
To start it had to end
Final separation

Well, I held on as long as I could
So long, Iím leaviní for good
Come on, step inside - itís resurrection time
Time to unwind - resurrection time

So hard to find
Come on, step inside - time to unwind
Resurrection time

Thereís someone out there calling
Trying to find a way
Need somethiní to believe in
I know what Iím gonna do

"Strange Days"
Come a dealer with a bag full
Heís pushing from the corner of his eyes
What you can tell from the shine of his shoes

Heís working for the F.B.I.
Where thereís a cop on every corner
Yeah, heís got an axe to grind

Waiting for some guitar playing, grass smoking, long hair
Heís got promotion on his mind

Strange days, Lord, Lord
Strange ways
Oh, strange ways

Iíd like to know
What Iím supposed to do
No, itís not for sale watchiní you two

"Spirit World"
Love crimes in the spirit world are vague
Bad child is the force with you tonight
Faces change where the ceremony lies
Describe time and the feelings slept awake
Slept awake, flyiní time

Took a wild ride on a white horse
Gonna lose your mind
Itís still runniní
White horse, runniní wild

Never lose the fight around the circle
Join the light, electric skies
Past time in a desert storm of life

I see wicked minded women painted to be proud
Sign in chants, awaiting Mass, to the tune of ancient rhythms

A breeze through the tribe
Smell the burning
What salvationís found
The fifth card reversed, which is worse

Took a wild ride on a white horse
Gonna lose your mind
Itís still runniní
White horse, runniní wild

Never lose the fight
Around the circle
Join the light, electric skies

So rise, your lifeís their ritual
When thereís danciní on the ground
Dance, child

Took a wild ride on a white horse
Gonna lose your mind
Itís still runniní
White horse, runniní wild

Gonna loose your mind runniní
Iíll meet you in the lost and found
Lost and found

"Shimmering Highs"

Instrumental


"Whose Side Are You On"
Better off last Sunday morning on the other side
Which is right, Iíve left the meaning hidden from the cries
I wake up cold in the middle of the night
Wonderiní why youíre not there

You were gone last Sunday morning
Well, I thought you cared

Bringiní each other down
Over and over again
Maybe this time youíll find yourself

Tell me
On whose side are you now

Better stop these voices creepiní round outside your back
Bed of roses for the nails you driven off the track
Do you wake up cold in the middle of the night
Wonderiní why Iím not there
Better off alive and thinkiní of one day that I cared

Bringiní each other down
Over and over again
Maybe this time youíll find yourself

Tell me
On whose side are you now

Better off last Monday morning on the other side
Which is right, Iíve left the meaning hidden from the cries
I wake up cold in the middle of the night
Wonderiní why youíre not there


Bringiní each other down
Over and over again
On whose side are you now

Fools lie all around
You stole what you found
On whose side are you now

"Sunshine of Your Love"
Itís getting near dark
When lights close their tired eyes
Iíll soon be with you, my love
Iíll give you my dawn surprise

Iíll be with you darling soon
Iíll be with when the stars start falling

Iíve been waiting so long
To be where Iím going
In the sunshine of your love

Iím with you, my love
The light shining through on you
Yes, Iím with you my love

Itís the morning and just we two
Iíll stay with you darling now
Iíll stay with you till my seeds are dried up

íve been waiting so long
To be where Iím going
In the sunshine of your love

Iím with you, my love
The light shining through on you
Yes, Iím with you my love

Itís the morning and just we two
Iíll stay with you darling now
Iíll stay with you till my seeds are dried up

And the trestle above our heads
Slice the sun into black and gold bars
That fell across our shiny backs
And shimmered like flat snakes on water

Get outta here
Looping the air, challenged
Whatís with the August Red

"Catalina Sunset"
Instrumental

"Half Way Home"
It was a lonely night
Air was restless
More electric feeliní in my soul
Tryiní to shake the burniní

I was losiní the flight
The hanginí on 9th St. calliní
The gang is losiní control

Packed a little money
Started the bike
Headed away from the west side

If only for one night
Maybe the Lord will try to save me
Maybe time to listen
Got me goiní crazy, but Iím leaviní

Iím gonna shake this ground Iím on
Nothinís gonna break
This road Iíve led upon
Canít stop this trip Iím on

Iím half way home
Half way gone

Iím tired and twisted
Such a long ride
Heard the boys are busted
Glad to be alive

Another day of ridiní
Hope Iíll see my girl
Hope she isnít under
In someone elseís world

Headed for trouble
And Iím leaviní it
Behind theyíre seeing double
Ahead Iíll win the race

Dealer is a loser
Stealiní is a shame
Bullets for the innocent
And Iím feeliní the pain

"Healing Rays"
As I wait for a sign to come falliní
Down on me from the sky
Iíve waited my life

Know you gotta wait for it
Know you gotta wait for the light
To come falling down with its healiní rays

And I wait for a sign to come
Falliní down on me from the sky
Iíve waited all my life

"Jillana"
Instrumental
