Cannonball

You're tellin' lies, so don't you criticize
Yeah I got used, all messed up and abused
You let me down, with all your runnin' round
Still you pretend and try to call me friend

Don't say a word, I know just what I heard
Yeah you've been loose, you just go no excuse
Just feel my rage, why can't you come of age?

I felt it all, just like a cannonball

Then you got mad, you said that I'm all bad
So what's the use, you lied and that's the truth
You took the key and drove right out on me
I never knew, put all my trust in you

OK that's it, I'm leaving now, I quit
I was unwise, so don't apologize
I paid the price, for taking your advice
I felt it all, just like a cannonball

You can say what you want all day
But I've never been so outraged
I'm washing my hands of you
How could you be so untrue
You know I can't stand no more
You know I can't stand no more

Still in Love

You've been lyin'
I've been cryin'
You've been messin'
I've been guessin' 'bout you
You've been cheatin'
I've been creepin' around
You've been leavin'
I'll be grievin', I'm grievin'

But I'm still in love with you
And no matter what you do
'Cause you know that in the end
I'll come runnin' back again

I've been drinkin'
Got me thinkin'
You've been tellin'
I've been yellin' at you
You've been stretchin'
I've been fetchin' you back
You've been tastin'

But I'm still in love with you
And no matter what you do
'Cause you know that in the end
I'll come runnin' back again

You've been sighin'
And goodbyin'
Never knowin'
Where you're been choosin'
I've been losin' you
You're my lover
But I discovered the truth

But I'm still in love with you
And no matter what you do
'Cause you know that in the end
I'll come runnin' back again
Got me dancin' on a string
Like I just don't mean a thing
'Cause you know that in the end
I'll come runnin' back again

No Inbetween

So pardon me boys
I'm gonna be late
I don't have the choice
I've got to get into shape

It's eight on the nose
And I gotta go
So pass me my coat
I've got to get to the show

Ain't got no feeling
Ain't got no pain
Ain't got no reason
To try again
Don't need no finger
To point at me
Can't let it linger
I must get free

So send me away
Cause I need a break
What more can I say
There's just so much I can take

But don't be so sad
I'm feeling alright
It won't be so bad
If I can get through tonight

It seemed so simple
Let's go out and have some fun
Someone to play to
We didn't know what we'd begun
Then as things grew
We really thought we had it made
But soon we all knew
That we'd be ending up like slaves

The simple fact is
There really ain't no inbetween
You're either up there
Or scurryin' round and lookin' lean
And when you're up there
They just can't wait to tear you down
Just like a treadmill
You find yourself goin' round and round

So pardon me boys...

So just one more time
Yeah that is for sure
And then I'll be fine
Ah but I've said it before

Better Days

Trust me, I can help you
Feel free, we can save you
Join us in the good life
And better days, better days

Campaign for a new life
Champagne and the bright lights
Make way for the right way
And better days, better days

You didn't realize about the other life that we can give you
We'll open up your eyes and make you see the light that's all around you
We'll help you work it out and then you'll never doubt
Our intuition, our vision, our decision, our mission, so listen

No war, no inflation
No more desperation
You'll see we can show you
Better days, better days

No hunger, higher wages
Good schools, smiling faces
Make way for the new way
Better days, better days

We're going to lead you down to where the sun is always brightly shining
We'll push away the clouds and show you there's a gold and silver lining
We'll take away the pain, you'll want to try again
You won't be sorry, so don't worry, don't worry, so hurry and join me

Brother Where You Bound

All persons whom we bring to this place are washed clean Winston.
The execution of their sentences is relatively unimportant.
By the time we have finished with them there is nothing left in them but sorrow for what they have done and love for Big Brother.
It is touching to see how they love Big Brother.

In 1924 the Communist Party published a book by Bogdanov, A Short Course in Economic Science, in which he stated that socialism was the highest possible height in human development...

Russian demand that British troops be be withdrawn from Greece is only a move in the propaganda campaign against the British, which the Russians were conducting all through...

Paris: Diplomatic relations between the Vatican and the Kremlin are very, very bad. They will get very, very much worse.

Here comes the candle to light you to bed
Here comes the chopper to chop of your head...

There's a red cloud hanging over us
And it's so big and it's gonna burst
All you people with your heads in the ground
Hey brother, where you bound?

And they're no good and they're everywhere
Try to tell you, but you just don't care
Yes I hear you, but you don't make a sound
Hey brother, where you bound?
Hey brother, where you bound?

And you don't know what they're gonna do
And you don't know how they feel
And you don't know what they're tellin' you
Is it a lie or is it real?
And the next thing that you know is
That they walk out on the deal

And the message that they're giving you
Is the same old alibi
If you don't quite see their point of view
Then they treat you like a spy
And the phone rings and you disappear
In the middle of the night

Can't you see they're on the move
Don't know what you're trying to prove
But you sit there oh so cool
Like they never broke no rules

And the cat flies and the crow walks
And the ghost dies and the sow talks
And they tell us that they'll be good as gold
Hey brother, where's your soul?
Believe nothing that you're told

Make a move in one direction
Try to make some compromise
But they greet you with rejection
Makin' out you're tellin' lies
Then they turn around and tell you
Better get down from the sky

For the sake of all that's holy
Listen good to what I say
I can feel them all around me
They could be here any day
But you act like you don't know me
Why'd you look at me that way?

If there's one thing that is clear
We gotta get away from here
We've gotta leave this place
It's just a hopeless case
Ain't no one else to blame
We're gonna lose this game

Hey brother, get off my back
I gotta tell you, you're way off the track
They got a hatred deep down inside
Ain't gonna let them take me alive

I'm gonna burn them down, just wait and see
Ain't gonna let them walk over me
You ain't got no heart and soul
And your mind is weak and your blood's runnin' cold

You better move, you better hide
They're gettin' in, they're gettin' inside
If you get caught you better know
They're gonna reap, you're gonna sow

Don't be a fool, we gotta go
Ain't no place safe for us to stay
We better move on, we better move on
We better move on, we better move on
We better move on, we better move on

Ever Open Door

Sharing's good, sharing's fine
But no one wants to share this world of mine
Is dull, dark and grey
And no one wants to find the way
To my front door is always open to you

Hey now life, give me a break
For much more of this I cannot
Take me to a far off place
Where there's no rich or poor
And every house has got an ever open door

I want to find my direction
I want my love and affection
Yes I'm needing it more and more

I want to find my own answers
It's time I knew what my plans were
I'm going to find what I'm looking for

I'm gonna take all my chances
Gonna make my advances
Gonna see what my life has in store

I've got a feeling inside me
I'll put the past way behind me
Pick myself up from the floor

I want my sun in the morning
Want my friends to come calling
I'll keep a welcome outside my door
