1. Cochise (3:42)
Well, I've been watching, while you've been coughing.
I've been drinking life, while you've been nauseous.
And so I drink to health, while you kill yourself.
And I've got just one thing that I can offer,

Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me. Yeah.

I'm not a martyr, I'm not a prophet,
And I won't preach to you, but here's a caution;
You better understand, that I won't hold your hand,
But if it helps you mend, then I won't stop it.

Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me. Yeah.

Drown if you want, and I'll see you at the bottom,
Where you'll crawl on my skin and put the blame on me, so you don't feel a thing.

Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me.
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me. Yeah.
2. Show Me How to Live (4:37)
And with the early dawn
Moving right along, I couldn't buy an eye-full of sleep
And in the aching night under satellites, I was not received
Built with stolen parts, a telephone in my heart, someone get me a priest, to put my mind to bed
This ringing in my head, is this a cure or is this a disease?

Nail in my hand, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Nail in my hand, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live

And in the after birth, on the quiet earth, let the stains remind you, you thought you made a man
You better think again, before my role defines you

Nail in my hand, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Nail in my hand, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
And in your waiting hands, I will land, and roll out of my skin
And in your final hours I will stand, ready to begin?
Ready to begin? ready to begin? ready to begin?

Nail in my hand, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Nail in my hand, from my creator
You gave me life, now show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
Show me how to live, show me how to live
3. Gasoline (4:40)
House is haunted
I just want to go for a ride
Out and on
Before I set this room alight
Left alone forever and for crimes unclear
With my patience gone
Someone take me far from here. Yeah

Burning that gasoline, yeah
Burning that gasoline

New day yawning, another day of solitaire
House is honest, clearly more than I can bear
Drag me off, before I set my world on fire
Out and gone the sun will never set tonight. Yeah

Burning that gasoline, yeah
Burning that gasoline

No what for's, only a can
Of red says danger on it
I have found another way

Burning that gasoline, yeah
Burning that gasoline
Burning it all away, burning it all away
4. What You Are (4:09)
And when you wanted me, I came to you
And when you wanted someone else, I withdrew
And when you asked for light, I set myself on fire
And if I go far away I know, you'll find another slave

now I'm free from what you want
Now I'm free from what you need
Now I'm free from what you are

And when you wanted blood, I cut my veins
And when you wanted love, I bled myself again
Now that I've had my fill of you, I'll give you up forever
And here I go, far away, I know you, you'll find another slave

Cause now I'm free from what you want
Now I'm free from what you need
Now I'm free from what you are. Hey

Then a vision came to me, when you came along
I gave you everything, but then you wanted more

now I'm free from what you want
Now I'm free from what you need
Now I'm free from what you are. Hey
now I'm free from what you want
Now I'm free from what you need
Now I'm free from what you are
5. Like a Stone (4:54)
On a cobweb afternoon,
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages of a book full of death;
Reading how we'll die alone.
And if we're good we'll lay to rest,
Anywhere we wanna go.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room patiently,
I'll wait for you there like a stone.
I'll wait for you there alone.

And on my deathbed I will pray to the gods and the angels,
Like a pagan to anyone who will take me to heaven;
To a place I recall, I was there so long ago.
The sky was bruised, the wine was bled, and there you led me on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I'll wait for you there like a stone.
I'll wait for you there alone, alone.

And on I read until the day was gone;
And I sat in regret of all the things I've done;
For all that I've blessed, and all that I've wronged.
In dreams until my death I will wander on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I'll wait for you there like a stone.
I'll wait for you there alone, alone.
6. Set It Off (4:23)
He was standing at the rock
Gathering the flock
And getting there with no directions
And underneath the arch, it turned into a march
And there he found the spark to, set this fucker off

Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright
Set it off
Set it off now chldren
Set a fire
Set it off
Set it off now children

Suddenly a shot
Ripped into his heart
He lay in need of some attention
And there he played his card
Going into shock
The last thing that he said was, set this fucker off

Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set a fire
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright, alright, alright. Alright, alright, alright

Jesus at the back door
Everything is all right
All we need is some direction
Every time the wind blows, everything you don't know
Turns into a revelation
And it all adds up inside your head
Time is wasting

Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set a fire
Set it off
Set it off now children
Alright, alright, alright. Alright, alright, alright
7. Shadow on the Sun (5:43)
Once upon a time I was of the mind
To lay your burden down
And leave you where you stood
And you believed I could
You'd seen It done before
I could read your thoughts
Tell you what you saw
And never say a word
Now all that is gone
Over with and done - never to return

[Chorus 1:]
And I can tell you why
People die alone
I can tell you I'm
A shadow on the sun

Staring at the loss
Looking for a cause
And never really sure
Nothing but a hole
To live without a soul
And nothing to be learned

[Chorus 2:]
And I can tell you why
People go insane
I can show you how
You could do the same
I can tell you why
The end will never come
I can tell you I'm
A shadow on the sun

Shapes of every size
Move behind my eyes
Doors inside my head
Bolted from within
Every drop of flame
Lights a candle in
Memory of the one
Who lives inside my skin

[Chorus 2:]
And I can tell you why
People go insane
I can show you how
You could do the same
I can tell you why
The end will never come
I can tell you I'm
A shadow on the sun

Shadow on the sun [x8]
Sun! [x2]
8. I Am the Highway (5:35)
Pearls and swine bereft of me.
Long and weary my road has been.
I was lost in the cities, alone in the hills.
No sorrow or pity for leaving, I feel, yeah.

I am not your rolling wheels – I am the highway.
I am not your carpet ride – I am the sky.

Friends and liars don't wait for me,
'Cause I'll get on all by myself.
I put millions of miles under my heels;
And still too close to you, I feel, yeah.

I am not your rolling wheels – I am the highway.
I am not your carpet ride – I am the sky.

I am not your blowing wind – I am the lightning.
I am not your autumn moon – I am the night… the night.

Yeah!
I am not your rolling wheels – I am the highway.
I am not your carpet ride – I am the sky.

Well,
I am not your blowing wind – I am the lightning.
I am not your autumn moon – I am the night... the night.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
9. Exploder (3:26)
I met a man locked away, for things he hadn't done.
Innocence on ball and chain. He'll never feel the sun Again on his face, or roses in his hands.
but when he smiled at me, I could understand.

If you're free you'll never see the walls.
If your head is clear you'll never free fall.
If you're right you'll never fear the wrong.
If your head is high you'll never fear at all.

There was a daughter of a man, who took his life too young;
She swore she'd never do the same, Then did just what he'd done.
And a boy who's gone insane, heard Voices in his head;
No one knows what they say, now his mother's dead.

If you're free you'll never see the walls.
If your head is clear you'll never free fall.
If you're right you'll never fear the wrong.
If your head is high you'll never fear at all.

There was a man who had a face, that looked a lot like me.
I saw him in the mirror and, I fought him in the street;
Then when he turned away, I shot him in the head.
Then I came to realize, I had killed myself.

If you're free you'll never see the walls.
If your head is clear you'll never free fall.
If you're right you'll never fear the wrong.
If your head is high you'll never fear...
10. Hypnotize (3:27)
Well if you set your mind upon it, I know that you can.
You've got everything you wanted. You've done everything you planned.
So let me make an offer, I'm only trying to help.
You can make your load Just a little lighter, All you got to do is share the wealth.

Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.

Well I know you got problems, I see it in your eyes.
But if you want to live to see the morning,
Give it up to your brother, or you'll get a surprise.

Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh. Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh.

Well, it's time to see, you got to give all you're gonna receive.
Hey, It's time to see, you got to give if you wanna believe.
you won't breathe.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
Oh no don't you keep your Good luck to yourself.
11. Bring Em Back Alive (5:29)
I was on my way to the center of the sun,
When I lost my wings and I fell into a crowd.
And they carried me to a hole in the ground;
And they buried me, where no one could see and no one would be around.

I am a virus. I live in silence.

I was on my way to a city in the clouds,
When I lost my mind and I had to settle down.
Then I had a dream of an island in the sea where the lepers die;
Where no one survives and no one can hear the cries.

I am a virus. I live in silence.

Just like heathens thinking, on our feet we'll believe in God.
with one step, two steps, three steps toward the graveyard;
On the high road to remembering, it seems that we forgot.

I am a virus. I live in silence.
12. Light My Way (5:03)
In my hour of need
On a sea of grey
On my knees I pray to you
Help me find the dawn
Of the dying day

[Chorus]
Won't you light my way
Won't you light my way
Won't you light my way
Won't you light my way

A bullet is a man
From time to time he strays
I compare my life to this
To this I relate
And I'm willing
To listen to your answers
And I'm not afraid
To tell you I need you today

[Chorus]

So when I'm lost
Or I'm tired and depraved
Or when my high buller mind
Goes astray won't you light my way

[Chorus]
13. Getaway Car (4:59)
The first time I saw you
You were chasing down
A cyclone
All alone in a field
With rail yards and clovers
I kept rolling on and never thought
You'd wind up chasing me

[Chorus:]
Well settle down I won't hesitate
To hit the highway
Before you lay me to waste
Settle up and I'll help you find
Something to drive
Before you drive me insane

You're tired of walking and you
Loathe the ground
The sidewalk will barely
Touch your feet and life moves
Too slowly to hold you down
With ringing hands
You take it out on me

[Chorus]

So get yourself a car and drive it all alone
Get yourself a car and ride it on the wind
14. The Last Remaining Light (5:17)
Roll me on your frozen fields;
Break my bones to watch them heal.
Drowned me in your thirsty veins,
Where I'll watch and I'll wait, and pray for the rain.

Curl like smoke, and breathe again,
Down your throat, inside your ribs,
Through your spine, and every nerve,
Where I watch, and I wait, and yield to the hurt.

And if you don't believe the sun will rise, Stand alone and greet the coming night, in the last remaining light.

The seven moons, and the seven suns.
Heaven waits, for those who run down your winter, and underneath your waves,
Where you watch and wait, and pray for the day.

And if you don't believe the sun will rise, Stand alone and greet the coming night, in the last remaining light.
And if you don't believe The sun will rise, Stand alone and greet The coming night, In the last remaining light, light, light, light.
