I say so long to all my faults as I lie here all alone I pray that this silence will befriend my thought Past attractions and those to come; the moments we endured with heavy hearts are all up debating the nature of right and wrong It’s got me clingin to the edge of my seat— so before I go to sleep I think about what my momma whispered to me Just let it go, oh child it’s time to release It’s summertime, but snow is fallin In winter the sun shines all day long Spring is here again— but it looks more like fall The mythology of our past is gone The tales the leaders tell are all one hundred thousand body bags tall So when the world's as cold as could be and control lies beyond your reach Do what can be done and then let it be Let it go, oh child it’s time to release

Where we’re going the song I’m singing keeps going til we’ve found love Where we’re going clouded vistas turn golden their tears become love And all of them changes remind us to face it the time has come Where we’re going our children fall asleep knowin that they are not alone And that our spirit keeps growin, like a tree we keep reachin to heed freedom’s call And nothin’s all that important, yet underneath each moment we can find God And so we find out that when we slow down we know who we are Where we’re going the simple things become tokens of where we come from And where we’re going once again cause we know that the day will surely come When we find what we’ve been looking for all the time we’ve been lost But what’s the cost of all this silliness? Do it this way— no, it goes like this— The things we trade just to be right Where we’re going mouths are fed when they open the streets are no one’s home Where we’re going rules are made to be broken anytime they don’t have our best interest in mind What I find to be reality is less concrete and more a dream with all the playfulness of a child So if I fall asleep before we meet promise me just this one thing: you’ll remind me where I was going where I’m going

Now I lay me down to sleep I pray to the lord my dreams to keep Wish upon a start so bright I wish that I would, I hope that I might Let me out Let me out of this gold colored cage Let me out Let me out before I suffocate Surfing electronic waves Pretty little thing in my bed with me Chocolate caramel pecan delight I can’t find mine, can I bum a light? I’m alone in the finest cage my time can buy Let me out Let me out of this gold colored cage Let me out Let me out before I suffocate Let me out Let me out of this diamond lined maze Let me out Let me out before I go insane The sun’s almost down, another day gone The tide’s creepin in to take what must go The flowers all know it’s time to bloom Spring is here now but a cold winter looms All the leaves on the trees will be silent soon Are you waitin on me or am I waitin on you? Let me out Let me out of this gold colored cage Let me out Let me out before I suffocate Let me out Let me out of this million mile maze Let me out Let me out before I go insane Let me out Let me out

It's Alright 04:56
It’s Alright I said I was lost, somehow blown off course Far from home without a guiding star But still it’s alright I was broke down, so damn confused Painter of landscapes without a view But still it’s alright Then in came the rain, night swallowed the day Noah’s Ark wouldn’t have helped a thing But still it’s alright Then out came the sun, like a heaven-white dove That sang a song that needed to be sung She said it’s alright It’s alright It’s alright, alright I was a witness when craziness opened a business And set up shop on my front lawn But still it’s alright Then I trailed behind me, selling itself at a loss From Philadelphia clear to California But still it’s alright I tried to eat or sleep or fuck away My tendency to let loneliness lay with me All day and night I was consumed by a two-dimensional view Of how I was perceived through the eyes Of you—and you—and you But it’s alright It’s alright It’s alright, alright I closed my eyes, envisioning what would be If we transmuted fear into belief And it was alright I had visions of Gandhi and Martin Luther King I finally understood what Jesus was saying He said, “It’s alright.” Then all the tortured, bruised and battered souls Appeared in the clouds as if to let me know They were alright Saying in spite of confusion, I in spite of the pain Our dearly beloved have gathered here today to sing “It’s alright!” It’s alright It’s alright It’s alright, alright It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright It’s alright, alright, alright Alright
