White Light
Hot Sunday evening, I was running late
eight hours through the mountains should put me at your gate
don't mind the journey, don't mind jet lag
better bring the right mind, better pack a bag

No need to worry
no need to fret
jet fuel in engines, everything is set
over the mountains, even though the hills
I'll fear no evil cause I'm covered still

eye on the while light
evil running scared
you'll see it coming if you listen for it there
eye on the white light
evil running scared
you'll feel it coming if you listen for it there

Liquid
Hanging out in Jersey one day
Waiting in the lot to hear Jerry play
From hot sunlight, across the way
I saw this girl so fine my mind got swept away
Long blond hair, stare and stare
I watched her walk from here to here and there to there
Summer heat splashed her bare feet
music in the distance played "nothing's shakin on shakedown street
I only wanted to get high

She wandered up and sat next to me
She said she had a certain something to show z
"See in my hands see the doves there white and see them flying in the blue dream light."
I laughed and then in New Jersey wind this girl kissed my lips and said she'd make my head spin
come on baby
then my sweet lady gave me liquid Zazayzazayzee pow pow
I said I'm starting to feel high

My head went left, my brain went right
and I went up the middle down the freeway night
In the air and then twisting there and then round and round and in between the what and where
Liquid Zazayzee
Liquid Zazayzee you don't say maybe
The hearts from your crystals played wave to the wind
I wanted to leave here but came to the be here now
Oh girl I see da saw da smile

Highway 32
Highway stretching out through
a pain of glass and detroit steel
always another city I drift from town to town
and town and time again it all goes....
and cities pick up and move as I leave
never had anything that I needed
There's always more road on the map
I know I can't stop looking back
I never see her

She, she came to me with the auburn hair and the blood shot eyes
never would trip the scene
the city sleeps the city dreams

Highway 32
midnight drive
I never see her

Forged 
Way out on a limb
dangling so far off the edge wondering where you might have been 
you think went too far
you maybe went too fast
you maybe pushed it baby way beyond the grasp of anything you've ever seen
or even ever really heard
I can hear her scream my name from inside the whistle from the coming train saying that
were gonna see about that
I can hear her scream my name from inside the whistle from the coming train saying that tha tha that tha that tha tha tha that that that
were gonna see about that

your angst will forge my steel meant to crush the demon wheel
saying that 
were gonna see about that

Iron City Blues
She was all alone along Forbes avenue
it was raining it was grey
it was nothing nothing new
So I headed down town to feed my soul
There were certain people there that I came to know
I cross the Allegeny and scored some gold
and I got on
and stoned


Another sunset another town
crazy nights.......rue......
your apparition inside my head
the haunt of your allure
And now I wonder why it is
it's starting all over again
I set the whole thing in motion and I got on
and stoned

There's a smokestack on the horizon
it's coughing out cynical rhymes 
Mr. Kesley on the corner
he asks me "which way is time?"
Is it muddy water or is it wine
I guess that we'll all know in time
I see the signs that read man your blind
and I got on
and stoned

When you were down and I was out
of my mind from paying dues
I looked to you but there was no answer
There's nothing I could do
Now Macy and Dave their there to haunt me
They laugh at my games and my fears
I looked out the window it was raining 
and I got on
and stoned

Dakota Moon
Wating in the grass
I saw you by the bus you just walked past
I looked into the mirror hoping to see the same
scene I'd seen before you whispered your heavenly name
Dakota Moon
Dakota Moon you sang the swoon
I'm forever lost inside your heavenly moonlight

Straight, I think you got it on straight
like the tie in the store from before I think you running on straight
Faith, I think you got it on Faith
like the time from before and the girl next door I said Faith

Dakota Moon you sang the swoon
I'm forever lost inside your heavenly moonlight

Springboard into Hopscotch
Somewhere in West Virginia way out in the pine
I followed the river going to another time
lost inside of the disco spun out in the rain
I can see the music playing, it's coming round this way

a real live hootenanny just to save the day
its coming  up the hillside rolling around the bend
stretching it even further over and twisting round again
a real live hootenanny just to save the day
I can see the music playing, it's coming round this way

Long shot from the country just to save the day
I followed a river going it came over round this way
lost inside of the disco a place to get away
I can see the music playing its coming round this way
a real live hootenanny just to save the day
I can see the music playing and playing and playing

RR. Crossing
When you were dancing with me over tonight
I loved you so much you made me alright 
around about about about about about

I loved you so much where are you?
We will be together from the time were through
around about about about about about about

Hitching a ride on that crazy train
straight of the rails
never the same once I heard you playing 
Inside my head a pulsating mess
I look to the sky, a pulsating mess
Straight off the rails, a pulsating mess

Funky Groove
On a sunny afternoon that came and went by way too soon
dancing in the sun, spun out on fun, seeing all the way through
scenes moving way too fast, it's time to lie down in the grass
I gotta find my shoes, I know I'll make it through
if I can just watch you move

to the funky funky groove
to the funky funky groove
I know I'll make it alright, if I can just watch you move
to the funky funky groove
to the funky funky groove
I know we'll make it alright, lets run tonight along with the groove
