BEING HUMAN

Song Lyrics by Slyd Blvd

Well, I try, - try - try - try – try . 

To do right, - right - right - right

In my mind - mind -mind - mind - mind. 

I am kind - kind - kind - kind

 

And I face off with the darkness and I chomp down on my pain

I won't let my inhuman - rise again

Sat on that river in Memphis watching bridges from both sides 

To understand that black and white divide, that still divides 

And it's a long old cold pride.

 

My home, - home - home - home – home. 

Turned to stone, – stone - stone – stone

I Know, - know - know - know – know. 

What they show, - show - show – show

 

You say you believe in justice, whose justice anyway

When the bombs hit what else can you say, can you say

Don't submit to the inhuman. Don't go down in that dirt

Don't concede to the anger, and the hurt, Don't get hurt 

It's a long lone hard fight

 

So People better get ready for the change that did not come

To make your mark you can't just pose and hum. Can't just hum

When you, face off with your darkness and you chomp down on your pain

Don't let your inhuman rise again, not again

 

From the sunshine to the rain, From the brown to green again

Feel the rain, feel the rain, feel that rain, feel that rain 

And it's a long lone hard grind

It's the cold old divide, still divides

Muster up some courage and some pride

LIKE THAT

Song Lyrics by Slyd Blvd

Like the powder in the shot, Like the rod iron when it's hot

Like the finger on the spot, Like the cooking in the pot

I wanna love like that, I'm gonna love like that

 

Like a leap over the moon, Like honey on the spoon

Like a sunny day in June, Like whistling a happy tune

I wanna love like that, I'm gonna love like that

 

Never ending endings, put me in the shade

You taught me dancing, then you moved away

I went down hard, and for this I have paid

Now I've started over, I'm gonna seize the day

 

Like the picture on the wall, Like the colors of the fall

Like making the call, Like winning it all

I wanna love like that, I'm gonna love like that

 

Like ripping it all apart, Like making it an art

Like the warm inside a heart, Like a lover at the start

I wann love like that, I'm gonna love like that

 

I check in on it often, and I treat it real kind

I've got a cool picture of it, and it's saved in my mind

My past wasn't perfect, so I've left it behind

Now I will believe in me, and I will own my find

 

Like the pleasure in the pain, like kissing in the rain

Like running off to spain, like making it jump again

I wanna love like that, I'm gonna love like that

I wanna love like that, I'm gonna love like that

SO TELL ME HOW GOES THE WAR

Song Lyrics by Slyd Blvd

So tell me, how goes the war? 

Haven't been around much - I'm not ducking the fire no more.

Think about you a lot - wonder if your still alive.

Or if you've go your head on right, I know you don't believe in the war.


It's peaceful here in Canada - Lot's of time for feeling fine,  we got a natural high.

I know I deserted - couldn't take the strain no more.

When Jumbo got it in the throat - I really felt I had to fly.

So tell me, how goes the war?

Does anybody know - just what the fighting is for?

So tell me, how goes the war?

Does anybody know - just what we are killing for?

So tell me, how goes the war?

Can you keep hanging on - in something there's no reason for?

I know I didn't do you right - But I knew you'd understand.

Only hope you'll make it too - and get out of that dreadful land.

It really dragged me out - when I killed that boy.

Just thirteen - and I tore his head a part.

Now I live a humble life - when you've killed someone

There's not much to be proud about.

So tell me, how goes the war?

Does anybody know - just what the fighting is for?

Yes tell me, how goes the war?

Does anybody know - what is the killing for?

So tell me, . . . . . (fade out)

SO LOW

Song Lyrics by Slyd Blvd

Thinking about all the places you've been, searchin' for Gold  Takin' it on the chin.

Looking' for that answer that don't be within.

Pickin' ourselves off the floor

 

Oh, how did we get so low, how did we get so low

How we dropped here I don't know, how did we get this low

 

Selling your rings by your house at the shore. Watching tomorrows pass by your door

Knew all this time that you needed much more. 

You begged but I didn't sustain

 

I'd be the fool if I let you go now, writing your letters, and throwing them down

Seems like the worst time to be in this town, but thats how it goes

When you let it go around and around

 

Oh, how did we get so low, how did we get so low

How we dropped here I don't know, how did we get this low

 

With our kind of lives there's no more to give, so we just live, 

and tear down the castles from the sky.

You and I were never meant to cry, we sing along, and listen to the eagle's song

If we had a time to choose again, we'd claim again, the same cold chances

 

Oh, how did we get so low, how did we get so low

How we dropped hear I don't know, how did we get this low

How we got here I don't know, how did we get so low

How did we get so low.
