keep the faith - 2017

Who are these monsters inside my head?
They give me uneasy feelings
They tell me “Go to sleep! Just go to bed!”
But I’m awake and I’m not dreaming

What can I do to make a change
Cause I just wanna be free
I don’t want a police state
I just want love and liberty

Call up a friend, send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind
With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

Now we all know about corruption
And we have started to dissent
The Banks, the Fed, assassination
So we’ll pay with Bitcoin instead

It’s what we do to make a change
Cause we just wanna be free
We don’t want a police state
We just want love and liberty

Call up a friend, send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind
With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

We all need a hero
A patriot in this civil war
But you won’t find him
on the TV or on the radio
We have the power
To ask the questions
So we can finally find the truth
Turn to each other
Sister and brother
Reach out to one another

Call up a friend send a message
Tweet it up or make a YouTube video
Speak your mind
With education,
The knowledge it starts to grow
So make a YouTube video

Sometimes it ain’t easy to be free
Too many people trying to get ahold of me
They tell me what to think and what to do
That I’ve gotta move on and get over you

This about a country and a love
We don’t know what will rain down from above
But it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman
And not a girl

I don’t always want to be the one who’s strong
Sometimes I need a man to tell me what’s right and what’s wrong
I can admit I have flaws
I get so mad I rip right through the walls

This is about a country and a love
We don’t know what will rain down from above
Cuz it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman
And not a girl

I need you to be a man, and not a boy
Cause I’m playing for keeps and my heart is not a toy
Will you stand up and defend the house and home?
Or pretend you didn’t notice, and leave me all alone?

This is about a country and a love
We don’t know what will rain down from above
Cuz it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman
And not a girl

I wish that you could give me what I need
But you can’t, and your words I don’t believe
I’m asking for the best of myself
So I’ll leave my lonely heart on the shelf

This is about a country and a love
Don’t know what will rain down from above
But it could be the end of the world
So I must choose to be a woman

Been a year on the road
Falling apart at the seams
I just wanna be home
But I can’t even sleep to dream

It would be really fine
If I had me a friend
Someone I belong to
Make him real, not pretend

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you

Take a moment to rest
Gotta get myself right
Put my faith to the test
Believing in something that’s right

Lift a song from the heart
Voice the echoes of mind
Give the world what they want
These are troubling times

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you

So I’ll wait for the day
That you give me a smile
Though you’re so far away
I can wait a while

There’s a set place in time
For the lightning to hit
All the stars will align
And I think that this is it

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you

I will promise you, I’ll be there
When the snow melts to rain
No we cannot break
There’s a lot to take
But I’m safe with you
I’m safe with you

Turn me loose from your hands
Let me fly to distant lands
Over green fields, trees and mountains
Flowers and forest fountains
Home along the lanes of the skyway

For this dark and lonely room
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors of the world outside
Thinking of the way that the wind can turn the tide

And these shadows turn from purple into gray,
For just this skyline pigeon, dreaming of the open,
Waiting for the day he can spread his wings and fly away again

Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind

Let me wake up in the morning
To the smell of new mown hay,
To laugh and cry, to live and die
In the brightness of my day

I wanna hear the pealing bells
Of distant churches sing
But most of all
Please free me from this aching metal ring

And open up this cage towards the sun
For just this skyline pigeon, dreaming of the open,
Waiting for the day he can spread his wings and fly away again

Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
Fly away,
Skyline pigeon, fly
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind

I woke up this morning
And I turned on the radio
I heard the same old song
So I went outside

People fighting, people living, people dying
And it’s oh so much to think about
It’s oh so much to worry about
It makes me cry

Need a bit of perspective,
Need some time to reflect it,
To remember how similar we all are
We all want the same things,
A chance to follow our dreams
To raise a family of love and liberty

So don’t forget the time we spent,
We’re not perfect, but we have good intent,
And even though we make mistakes
We stand unified.

So hold on tight
It’s a hell of fight
Keeps you up in the night
But we have to remember
We’re all on the same side

Now it’s late in the evening
And I can’t seem to turn off the news
Telling me that we’re gonna lose
But we’ve already won

We’ve got a message and a voice and a song
Now if only we could all just get along
Put away the past and pride
And leave the worries behind

Need a bit of perspective,
Need some time to reflect it,
To remember how similar we all are
We all want the same things,
A chance to follow our dreams
We are a family of love and liberty

So don’t forget the time we spent,
We’re not perfect, but we have good intent,
And even though we make mistakes
We stand here unified

So hold on tight
It’s a hell of fight
Keeps you up in the night
But we have to remember
We’re all on the same side (repeat)

It feels like night, babe
But it’s really the dawn
As tears roll down my face
On this early morn

Some days I’m happy,
And some days I’m strong
But today I’m here wondering
Where it all went wrong

I know goodbyes aren’t meant to be easy
This time to cut it all off is the best way to go
It’s too late for you to say that you miss me
Cause you’re not really there at the end of the day

Things have been much worse in my life
But this mess was made by you
I pulled out my heart, and I gave you half
So now I play the fool

I know I should be out singin’ songs about peace and freedom
But my heart is still chained up like a servant and a slave

I know goodbyes aren’t meant to be easy
This time to cut it all off is the best way to go
It’s too late for you to say that you miss me
‘Cause you’re not really there at the end of the day

I know about the drones and the bombs
And all about Big Brother
I just need some time to heal and I’ll get back up on the field

I know goodbyes aren’t meant to be easy
But this time to cut it all up is the best way to go
It’s too late for you to say that you miss me
‘Cause it’s not really fair how it hurts when you’re not there
I need someone there at the end of the day

I went out to a gig today,
They told me I’d be paid to play,
I’m counting on it, to pay all of my bills

I gotta eat, have a place to sleep
Need to cool the summer heat,
So yeah, if you don’t mind, I need my cash

Or I will call you out
Gotta ask the people for their help
Cause we can’t afford the crooked courts anymore
Yeah we will call you out
Cause you tell the cops and they won’t listen
A benefit of broken systems these days

I left New York to go to Chile,
Far away, it wasn’t pretty
But I dust myself off and walk away

I’m looking up and I won’t be down
Cause I get to play all around the world
It is so beautiful to see

You think that cause I’m just some girl
You’ll frighten me with scary words or
Try to touch me when I’m on the stage

It seems romantic to be broke
But you know, my friend, it ain’t a joke
When the bad guy always gets away

If you want me to be happy
Then please find me somebody to love
Cause I’m lonely, yeah, it’s sappy
But I want him sent from up above

I’ve been waiting a long, long time
Wish somebody would send a sign
Write some words, maybe if they rhyme
He’ll come around

I’m a romantic,
So then sue me!
Cause I want a prince to ride by my side
A perfect lover,
No undercover,
I won’t worry if he cheated or lied

I’ve been waiting a long, long time
Wish somebody would send a sign
Write some words, maybe if they rhyme
He’ll come around

Now some may say
That a love can fade away
You’re passing the time
Fortune telling on my last dime
Don’t you say it can’t happen
In these times
Today

All alone in my bed,
Fighting dragons again
No, I can’t stop the tears when they fall

How did I get to this place?
All that work seems a waste
I thought I had friends on my side

Keep the memories, and make love from war
No, you never know what life has in store
It can take a little while to learn to keep the faith
You gotta learn to keep the faith

You know it’s been a real bad year,
Lots of sorrow and fear
And I’ve wondered where I took the wrong turn,

But I’ve had time to reflect,
Gave myself some respect,
And I’ll face the whole big world mighty strong

You go rolling ahead
And I cry a little bit
No, you won’t find your way back to me

But at the end of the day
I thank God when I pray,
Cause it was better than drinking alone

Whatever happened to a love that was true,
Where you didn’t wanna fuck my friends?
I wanted the real thing, you said all the right things,
But somehow we’ve come to an end

It wasn’t the fast track, it wasn’t the last batch
Of shit to go wrong that did us in

It was the way that you told me
That you’d always hold me
But you left me out in the wind

Whatever happened to the word of a man?
I thought that I could count on you
I guess I’m old-fashioned for the things that I’m asking
But I didn’t break a promise to you

So now I act crazy, you’re playing me, baby,
You’re right I ain’t no good at this game

And I’ve been standing out in the cold
And I want to feel the fire now
Take some time for myself
Just under a thousand miles

You said that this wouldn’t happen,
You made me imagine
What a life together would have been

I’ll pick up the pieces
After all our releases
of Love
When it breaks on the ground

There was a man who did the unspoken
He looked for freedom from the violence
No one is perfect when there’s new ground broken
A mess is made and someone gets blamed

He had a dream of harmony
As you wish to live out your own
We cannot stand for this, cannot have you fall along
The silk road

This ain’t the movies, there’s a war in the streets
The innocent are in jail
We pray for justice and we want to be free
And hope the truth will prevail

We still have hope
We cannot quit
Don’t be afraid
We have a voice and this is it
Let the light show the way

I didn’t want to give any of my money to a nation based on war
I wanted to be free, nothing holding me back from where I want to go
I thought about it, I thought about it
What was the choice that I made?
It was to take away the money,
Don’t give up your money,
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay

I didn’t want to waste any of my time working for the government,
I wanted to be kind, open up my mind just like an instrument
I thought about it, I thought about it
What was the choice that I made?
It was to take away the money,
Don’t give up your money,
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay

Oooooo, what a little crypto can do
No longer a slave
I don’t have to work until the grave

So many times I cried to myself that we didn’t have a chance
Nakamoto came along with more than a song, gave the labor back to man
I thought about it, I thought about it
What was the choice that I made?
It was to take away the money,
Don’t give up your money,
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
Use Bitcoin whenever you pay
