Who's Comin Out Alive?
____________________

Verse
Come on in, you're invited
the stakes are high, get excited
the teams are ready, swords are high
so let's fight, see who's right
is it black or is it white?

Pre-Chorus
It's my game of indecision
the form my life takes
a little torture, let's see who's winning
the sinner or the saint

Chorus
The teams are in their corners
show's about to start
Join me now, come inside (my mind)
Let's see tonight
Who's comin out alive
Who's comin out alive

Verse
They circle one another
the vultures are high
(a) little ritual
sometimes takes all night

I feel a tap on my shoulder
I say 'who's there?'
'I'm your golden opportunity
the one on your back is your worst nightmare'

Chorus

Bridge Idea?
She's not good enough
she don't know right from wrong
she'll just disappoint you
but she puts on a good fight
********************************************************************

Waging War
____________

Temperaments flare, and the world's divided
among the ruins, in the hearts of man
And so the cause is undecided
You don't Suppose there's an evil plan?

Should we take another course of action
Should we sit around and hope
What's the coming attraction
Can we keep this world afloat?

Chorus
And all the people will finally see
we're all one family
and there's no reason to fear
What did we come here for?
Not waging war, not waging war

Verse
And now the time is right
to decide how we want to live
It's just that some have it in their minds
we're not suppose to give

If there is a heavenly father
how on earth could he ever chose?
and why on earth would he bother
give to some and let the others lose?

Verse III (or Bridge)
In the suffering , dying all us
It's the consequence of man
and the only difference
is what we make, yes we can

and so forgive me of my wrong doings
oh please forgive what I said
It's just that I'm only beginning
to understand where it led

Walk Alone No More
-------------------------

You don't have to walk alone no more
no, you don't have to walk alone no more
open up your eyes and see
heaven on earth can be
where you live, not where you go

You don't have to fight alone no more
rests here on my shoulder soldier
no more human sacrifice
equality will set things right/no more black, no more white
you don't have to fight alone no more



Chorus
o o o ohhhh, this road's gonna take you home
Equality, not just for some but for you and me//Oneness and equality, we're gonna walk this road 'til we are free
Heaven on earth forever more//the meek (the beast) shall live forever more

Pick up the pace, feel the rhythm in your feet
Now you're walkin' with Desteni
heaven on earth when you try
we can even touch the sky
it's heaven on earth when you walk with me

You don't have to doubt yourself no more
you don't have to doubt yourself no more/ time to even the score
no more rich , no more poor
no more slave, no more war
you don't have to doubt yourself no more

Human Chains

Human Chains

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iISruSigjIw *I did a vocal of this song as an example my voice. The production is a little corny, I realize. An acquaintance generously recorded this for free.

There's a cold wind a comin'
but there's chains at my door
because I got no money
but I'm helpless to get home

You know I cry, you know it's wrong
You know I die, but you let it, ya you let go on

Chorus
Breaking these chains, one by one
Breaking these chain, you've already won
I'm not playing with human chains/You won the game of human chains/we're all to blame, for what we've made

And so you pass me by
on the way to your charity dinner
Did you know my child died
just so you could look like a winner?

The rich spin the wheel, like life is a game
ya, you took a chance, that human flesh, that human flesh would pay

Bridge
All I ever wanted was to fly
Feel the freedom, that you've known in this world
All I ever wanted was my girl to go to school
my son to wear new shoes, do the things you do
but you let it, ya, you let go on
