Goodbye Daddy

I left my home still as a child 
I walked a thousand soary miles 
To wait for my father, to gather up his truth 

He said my boy you've got to run 
Don't wait for me, don't wait for mum 
We'll come get you, when it's safe for us to move 

So I waited many years, 
held back the pain behind my tears 
For my father, to come find me like he said 

And in that time I was alone, 
so many years without my home 
I made brothers of a different kind instead 



And in the time I didn't know, 
just how hard the wind could blow 
Towards disaster, and the things that I would see 

So this here I say
A hero into the masses, 
to those born without chances 
There's a freedom that everyone deserves 

I know there's greed and there's corruption 
I've seen death and mass destruction 
But I'm telling you, and I hope that I'm heard 

And I will not be commanded, 
And I will not be controlled 
And I will not let my future go on, 
without the help of my soul 



I will not be commanded, 
I will not be controlled 
And I will not let my future go on, 
without the help of my soul

Goodbye Dear Friend

Some roads that you take Some bonds we'll choose to break I swore I'd no long be the pallbearer But I carried you to bed So you could rest your head You were taking off a load, heavy drinking The world it carries on Your memories and song And your pictures on my wall, are not forgotten There was hymns that came from mouths That turned crosses upside down But it came through their teeth with great ease And all are bobbing heads in sync And all have got a lot on their minds to think about But you carry on in pictures and in song And the unmade bed you slept in  Where I laid you down to rest one last time Goodbye, dear friend, Goodbye, dear friend Some stories break your heart And some with such applaud Buried deep inside, where it's okay to cry Some boys won't shed a tear Oh, but a tale like this here... It can break me down and get me where it hurts the most

My hair grew long and my heart grew cold

I had a cure, for your disease
but you threw it away
and you made it clear I was not welcome on these seas
and you threw it away

so I sailed and I sailed for so long
my hair grew long and my heart grew cold
I face certain death without you near

and I felt the storm and swam until the skies were clear
and I found a home along this crooked road

and all of this would have been
all of this could have been yours

all of this should have been
all of this could have been yours

black clouds roll, right over red doors
as the waves were high
sooo was i
and the moon never looked so angry
as when your walls came crumbling down.

It was so beautiful
It was so peaceful

All the destruction, 
it was quiet

all of this would have been
all of this could have been yours


all that you love, will be carried away
oh all that you love, will be carried away

all of my pain, that you put on my name
all of my doubt, and all of my shame
