Release: Head Down


1. Keep On Swinging

One day, my prayers are going to be answered
For so long, I’ve been hungry for something else
When there’s a will, there’s a way
I work hard ‘cos at the end of the day
The Lord helps those that help themselves

Hey hey, I keep my head down, but I keep on swinging
Hey hey, I keep my head down, but I keep on swinging

Right now, somebody’s counting my money
So much, that they can’t see the top of the stack
Where there’s a will, there’s a way
That money’s gonna find my hand one day
And when it does, I ain’t looking back

Hey hey, I keep my head down, but I keep on swinging
Hey hey, I keep my head down, but I keep on swinging…

2. Wild Animal

She’s too sweet for me that I can’t even taste it
She gets on my tongue and I try not to waste it
She’s too good to me that I can’t barely take it
She says I’m good and I just get irritated

You’re playing with a wild animal
You know I’m never gonna do what I’m told

She’s too rich for me, I know I’ll never make it
She takes me to a party and I just get faded
She’s too hot for me when she’s standing there naked
But I get so high that I can’t appreciate it

You’re playing with a wild animal
You know I’m never gonna do what I’m told…

3. You Want To

You got me right where you want me
You got me out on the street
I’m cold and I’m lonely
I need your company

I’m so sorry, this time I mean it
Let me in, I know you want to

I see my dog in the window
The records on my lawn
You’re out spending my dough just to get your hair done

I’m so sorry, this time I mean it
Let me in, I know you want to

Now I understand one of us had to draw the line
I know you need a natural man
The world is crawling with women
None of them love like mine

Let me in, I know you hear me

I’m so sorry, this time I mean it
Let me in, I know you want to

4. Until The Sun Comes

I know you think you’ve heard it all before
But you’ll be telling stories of tonight
Get it left, get it right, get it up and down
And through it all, I’ll be staring at your eyes

And we can dance, we can dance until the sun comes up
Until the sun comes…

And if you don’t believe what I say
I’ll kiss your eyes if you’re in doubt
Get it left, get it right, get it up and down
This building might burn but we’ll be making out

And we can dance, we can dance until the sun comes up
Until the sun comes…

5. Run From Revelation

Back when I was a young man, I used to be a hard one
I could whip any beast that stood in my path
Now I’m long in the tooth and I only seek comfort
My days pass like hours and the world moves too fast

If I could run from Revelation
I’d run straight back to Genesis
Cry, I want to do it again
Cry, I want to do it again

Back when I was a young man, I used to be a strong one
I could stand through the storm and command it to pass
Now I’m long in the tooth and I’m telling you children
You’d better learn some respect because I don’t need your sass

If I could run from Revelation, I’d run straight back to Genesis
Cry, I want to do it again
Cry, I want to do it again…

6. Jordan

The wolves look to the moon
And the ocean to the sky
I’ve looked to you my whole life
Now I have to say goodbye

But to say that I’ve lost you
It’s a selfish thing to say
I’ve never seen nothing as beautiful as watching you slip away

I’d rather see you go in the arms of your angels
Than to keep you right here with me
I’ll meet you on the other side of the Jordan
Now let your soul go free

You did it all with feeling
And failure, you took it gracefully
You said third star to the right and straight on ’til morning
When you need me, you know that’s where I’ll be

Now the rest of my life without you
Right now it’s hard to conceive
You said, don’t cry for me now
You’ve got to remember, there is no death for those that believe

I’d rather see you go in the arms of your angels
Than to keep you right here with me
I’ll meet you on the other side of the Jordan
Now let your soul go free

7. All The Way

When I was young, sometimes I’d be a bad boy
My Pop would sit me down, he’d put his belt back on tight
He’d say apologise to your sister, treat the women right
And I’d say mm-hmm
And he’d give me that look
And I’d say, ”yes, sir”

Well that happened many more times, due to various reasons
They said I was a colourful boy

I didn’t play ball so I couldn’t get the chicks
Until I picked up the guitar and I learned a couple licks and it went…
Well it didn’t exactly sound like that
But anyhow, you get the picture

But I found my focus, and I found my steam
For the rest of my life I’m gonna fight for this dream, you know…

This time, I’m going all the way
This time, I’m going all the way

And after that, everything changed
I got what I wanted
But my hunger stayed the same

Now that I’m older, I’ve still got to learn things twice
When we first met, you were looking for a man
I was acting like a boy and you gave me the hand
And you said hmmm-mmmm
But I was so used to getting what I wanted
Hmm-mmm

Well that happened many more times, due to various reasons
Usually whiskey

But you gave me another chance, and this time it’s good
I’m so down for romance and treating you like I should
And you say baby, baby
Well, you don’t exactly say that
But anyhow, you get the picture

But we got our focus, and we got our steam
For the rest of our lives, we’re gonna fight for this dream, you know…

This time, we’re going all the way
This time, we’re going all the way

So if you get it wrong, go back and do it right
Find out what you love, hold on to it tight

This time, we’re going all the way
This time, we’re going all the way

8. The Heist

I’m not a violent man, but I can’t seem to cope
I tie a dangerous knot to the end of my rope

Baby, baby don’t worry I’m coming home
Home with the money

I’ve got four mouths to feed and a woman in doubt
I’m walking in with a gun and I’ll be rich coming out

Baby, baby don’t worry I’m coming home
Home with the money

I slip the paper to the teller, I’ve got my sunglasses on
Stay calm is what I tell her, that when I hear the alarm

Baby, baby don’t worry I’m coming home
Home with the money

9. Three Fingers

I’m in the air gliding over the water
Feet tucked under my tail
Wings pulled back, body like a spear
This time I’m coming back with a whale

I’d better take a deep breath

It’s never easy
We are the bullets, breast to grave

I’m on my feet and I’m running the plaza
Matador is holding the red
I’ve got the horns, I’ve got the speed
This motherfucker’s going home dead

Three fingers, on the rocks

It’s never easy, but you’d better be brave
We are the bullets, breast to grave

11. Manifest Destiny Pt.1

Out on the hunt for Tatanka, the buffalo are only miles away
You see the tracks from the army’s wagons
Headed for your camp from yesterday

You know we’re dealing with godless men
You know we’re dealing with godless men

It killed your horse but you made it home
To burning bodies around that lay
Chanumpa broke and you’re alone
Help me, Aho Mitake Oyasin

You know we’re dealing with godless men
You know we’re dealing with godless men

12. Manifest Destiny Pt.2

You know we watched your soldiers from the hills last night
And we’ll keep on watching until the morning light

We’re taking lives at dawn
We’re taking lives at dawn

Do it for the dead

I can see the eagle on way up high
And if I take my journey I’m going to shoot through the sky

We’re taking lives at dawn
We’re taking lives at dawn

Do it for the dead

You know my wife and children had hair so black
Now there’s nothing you can do that will bring them back

We’re taking lives at dawn, we’re taking lives at dawn

13. True

When I built this bed, I did it with my own two hands
For I knew that one day you would come along
And make this home no longer alone

My own true love

When I come in from the fields
You wash my body and sit next to me
We will have two children
They will call you mama

My own true love

We will lift our voices
We will pray together

My own true love
