«¿Cómo puede considerarse el “flower power” desfasado? La esencia de mis letras es el deseo por la paz y la armonía. Eso es lo que todo el mundo siempre ha querido. ¿Cómo puede estar desfasado?»

Achilles Last Stand

It was an april morning
When they told us we should go
As I turn to you
You smiled at me
How could we say no?

With all the fun to have
To live the dreams we always had
Woa the songs to sing
When we at last return again

Sending off a glancing kiss
To those who claim they know
To know the streets the seaman hears
The devil is in his hole

Oh to sail away
To sandy lands and other days
Oh to touch the dream
Hides inside and never seen, yeah

Into the sun the south the north
Lies the first of hope
The shackles of commitment fell
In pieces on the ground

Oh to ride the wind
To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud
Dancing as we fought the crowd

To seek the man whose pointing hand
The giant step unfolds
With guidance from the curving path
That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring
In celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat
As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

Days went by when you and I
Made an eternal summers glow
As far away and distant
Our mutual time to grow

Oh the sweet refrain
Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering upon the rings
What place to rest the search
The mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

The mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

From the earth

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas
Hold the heavens from the earth

For Your Life

Well, well.
Ho, ho, ho!
You said I was your only,
We've been livin' in your head,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ho.
Exhibition is your habit,
Emotion's second hand,
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
Had to pull away to save me,
Maybe next time around.
Oh... and she said, don't you wannit?
Don't you want cocai cocai cocaine?
Hadn't planned to, could not stand to,
Try it, friend, na, na, na, na, yeah.

Whoo ooh ooh ooh,
Heard a cry for mercy,
In the city of the damned.
Oh oh babe, deep down.
Impossible to go lower,
The next stop's on the ground,
Oh, low on the ground.
You want to know is it quite over,
To fame and tears and losing hair.
And I said didn't mean to,
Did not mean to profit.
If you can plan you are a brave man.

Do you wanna? Do you wanna do it?
Do it when you wanna.
Do you wanna? Do you wanna do it?
Do it when you wanna.

When you blow it babe,
You got to blow it right.
Oh baby, if you fake it mama,
Baby, fake with all your might.
When you fake it, mama,
Please fake it right, for yourself babe,
When you fa-fa-fa-fake it baby,
You're fakin' it for your life.
For your life.
For your life.
For your life.

Do it, do it, do it, do it,
Do it when you wanna.
Do it, do it, do it, do it,
Do it when you wanna.

Oh, I can help you baby,
But I don't know what to do, yeah.
Sometime baby, nothin' I could do.

Wanna find myself a crystal,
Payin' through the nose.
And when they couldn't resist you,
I sought to go with the flow.
And now your stage is empty,
But now the curtain baby, please,
Fold up your show.

Hadn't planned to
Could not stand to fry in it.
I hadn't planned it,
I over ran it, fryin,
For your life.
For your life.

Royal Orleans

One town love, you better take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night, and if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it, sometimes its hard to feel it bite

Feel it bite!

A man I know, went down to Louisiana,
Had himself a bad, bad fight
And when the sun peeks through John Cameron
He kissed the whiskers, left to right

Whiskers!

Now, now, now, a fight subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter, our friendship took a bash tonight
Now love gets hot, look far for a sea with water
Grew whiskers sittin' there through the night

Whiskers!

Down on Bourbon Street, you know it's right
You can see my friend, when they run around us in the night
Most everywhere, until the closet's bare
Run for the razor, doin' up my hair

New Orleans queens, sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
When I step out, I'm struck down with my sugar
She done talk like Barry White!

Now, one town love, take care how you use it
And try to make it last all night
Take your pick, be careful how you choose it
Sometimes it's hard to feel it bite.

Nobody's Fault But Mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
if I don't keep my soul alive
it's nobody's fault but mine

The devil he taught me to roll
The devil he taught me to roll
how to roll that invisible line
well, it's nobody's fault but mine

I've got a bible in my house
I've got a bible in my house
if I don't read it, my soul dies
well, it's nobody's fault but mine

My sister she taught me to read
My sister she taught me to read
I didn't read it, lost my life
it's nobody's fault but mine

If I don't read my soul to life
well — nobody's fault but mine

Snowblind

I'm snowblind
Whooooo snowblind
I'm so blind
And I don't know what I'm doing

It's so bright and so white

Won't you stop the light
I hate how it shines
Well, it's in my face, it's in my eyes
In my face, in my eyes and
It shines day and night, day and night

When day is night and black is white
Everything looks like a fright

Wrong is right and day is night
Night and day
Wish you were the one
Wish wish wish
You were, you were, you were the one

Night and day underneath the sun
I wish I could see the sun
But I'm snowblind

Hots on for Nowhere

I was burned in the heat of the moment
No, it could've been the heat of the day
When I learned how my time had been wasted
Dear fellows, I turned away
Now I've got friends who will give me their shoulder
When I should happen to fall
Time and his bride growing older
I've got friends who will give me some all

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Corner of Bleeker and nowhere
In the land of not quite day
A shiver runs down my backbone
The face in the mirror turns grey
So, I looked 'round for a hitch from a reindeer
Said you oughta find him out in the day
I turned 'round to look for the snowman
To my surprise he'd melted away, yeah

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

The moon and the stars out of order
As the tide tends to ebb and sway
The sun in my soul's sinking lower
While the hope in my hands turns to clay
I don't ask that my feet fall on clover
I don't roam at opportunity's door
Why don't you ask my advice, take it slower
Then your story'd be your finest reward

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Lost on the path to attainment
Search in the eyes of the wise
When I bled from the heart of the matter
I started bleeding without a disguise
Now everything's finally happened
Now and then you've got to take time to pause
When you're down on the ground, don't be messin' around
You can land in a boat without oars

La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, na, na, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la, yeah
La, la, la, la, la, la

Hey babe, Hey babe
Hey babe, I lost my way
Hey babe, Hey babe
I really, really did now
Hey babe, Hey babe
I don't know where I'm gonna find it
Hey babe, Hey babe
Do you wanna know
Do you really, really, wanna help me, yeah

Let me tell you now, babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right
C'mon babe
Let me tell you
That it feels so good that it must be right
C'mon babe
Let me tell you
If it feels, if it feels, if it feels
if it feels so good, so good, so good
Oh, yeah

Tea for One

How come twenty four hours,
Baby sometimes seem to slip into day.
Oh twenty-four hours,
Baby sometimes seem to slip into day.
When a minute seems like a lifetime,
Ooh baby when I feel this way.

Sittin' lookin at the clock,
Oh time moves so slow.
I've been watchin for the hands to move,
Until I just can't look no more.

How come twenty four hours,
Baby sometimes slip into day.
A minute seems like a lifetime,
Baby when I feel this way.

To sing a song for you,
I recall you used to say.
Oh baby this one's for me to you,
Which in the end is you anyway.

How come twenty four hours,
Baby sometimes slip into day.
A minute seems like a lifetime,
Oh baby when I feel this way.

There was a time that I stood tall,
In the eyes of other men.
But by my own choice I left you,
And now I can't get back again.

How come twenty four hours,
Sometimes slip into day.
Well well well,
A minute seems like a lifetime,
Baby when I feel this way.
A minute seems like a lifetime,
Oh baby when I feel this way.
I feel this way.
