Track Name: Bang Bang (Remix)
she woke me up with the bang bang looking over crossed eyed
had a big hunch that the world was a big lie
when I got up all the blood to my head
I got so dizzy fell back into my bed
I went over to the wayside looking for the high tide
what will I find will I find will I find find
all I saw was a man that had a hat that had a pompom
he’s been there for years can someone tell me how long
wake up to tell me wake up to show me what I could not find
wake up to tell me wake up to show me what I could not
ya see this woman woke me up at a quarter to three
and I didn't know it then but she put a spell on me
she said I had to go down to where the cliffs meet the sea
and meet and old man to present my plea
so I headed way down to that big pier to wait and confront my big fear
I wheeled around behind to my blind side
to find an old man with a lime and a kind eye
said mister mister with your beard so long
won't you be a saint tell me just where I'm going
he pointed to a conch shell and then to the lime and said this is all I really need to get by
wake up to tell me wake up to show me what I could not find
hey hey mister man I know ya don't know who ya think I think I am
but I can safely say that I should of been sleeping
been sleeping been sleeping been sleeping the day away
hey hey I said excuse me have you got the time
he shrugged his shoulders said get a spine
coconut hit me on the head jonesing for a fig
I got booked last night I need another fix dig
yeah just then I see a twinkle twinkle in the old man's eye
and a wave tossed bottle is thrown to the sky
I caught it on the rebound and landed with a soft sound
I took out the message and put the bottle down
inside was the antidote to the spell
I read it to the man 'cause he couldn't read so well
said don't worry about a thing ya know your path is true
just ease your mind have a banana or two
well goodness goodness whoa is me
the man nearly flipped to learn he was free
but just before we left he started kicking it
I picked up the bottle and star sixed it
kick kick shuffle shuffle back to the beach
with a tune on my lips and my quest in reach
that woman come to see you with her song so sweet
say damn let the poor sucker sleep let him sleep
wake up to tell me wake up to show me what I could not find
Track Name: General (Remix)
there was a decorated general with a heart of gold
that likened him to all the stories he told of past battles won and lost and legends of old a seasoned veteran in his own time on the battlefield he gained respectful fame
with many metals of bravery and stripes to his name he grew a beard as soon as he could to cover the scars on his face and always urged his men on but on the eve of a great battle with the infantry in dream the old general tossed in his sleep and wrestled with its meaning he awoke from the night just to tell what he had seen and walked slowly out of his tent all the men held tall with their chests in the air
with courage in their blood and a fire in their stare it was a grey morning and they all wondered how they would fare til the old general told them to go home I have seen the others and I have discovered that this fight is not worth fighting I have seen their mothers and I will no other to follow me where I'm going take a shower shine your shoes you got no time to lose you are young men you must be living go now you are forgiven but the men stood fast with their guns on their shoulders
not knowing what to do with the contradicting orders the general said he would do his own duty bout would not extend it not further the men could go as they pleased not a man moved their eyes glazed straight ahead
til one by one they stepped back and not a word was said and the old general was left with his own words echoing in his head he then prepared to fight I have seen the others and I have discovered that this fight is not worth fighting I have seen their mothers and I will no other to follow me where I'm going take a shower shine your shoes you got no time to lose you are young men you must be living go now you are forgiven ya got to be got to got be to got to be hey
Track Name: Mayday [Live]
I saw you yesterday your eyes were the color of some kind of grey. I hear what you're saying, but don't let me go I've got all the people down below. They rush to talk; they rush to say man overboard... may day...may day... may day... troubles are brought back by you funny how we, we go down we go anywhere, but to the ground

So I hear that you're doing fine you've flown all them planes that have been on your mind. I can't understand I don't need to know I'll speek to you through this radio. They rush to talk; they rush to say There's a man and he's overboard... may day...may day... may day...

Troubles are brought back by you funny how we, we go down we go anywhere, but to the ground.

So I hear that you're doing fine you've flown all them planes that have been on your mind.
Track Name: Walk With You [Live]
And I will walk with you using the stars as guides. On a homeward path we go knowing our time is nigh. I, I will walk to be with you. All I've done just to be with you.

So put your hand in mine and lay your head to rest. We'll light the candles now they won't be lit for long. We'll know our day was blessed.

I, I will walk to be with you. All I've done just to be with you.

And I will walk with you using the stars as guides. On a homeward path we go knowing our time is nigh. I, I will walk to be with you. All I've done, and all I say to be with you...
