Blue Rock 04:18
BLUE ROCK, BLUE ROCK TWISTING TRYING TO MAKE TROUBLE, TRYING TO MAKE FREEDOM. BLUE ROCK, BLUE ROCK SHIFTING STIRRING UP TROUBLE, STIRRING UP FREEDOM. WE ARE LIVING IN A WORLD TODAY WHERE WE TAKE OUR OWN PEACE OF MIND AND GIVE IT AWAY. TAKE MY HAND AT THE HIGHEST PRICE, AND WITH JUST ENOUGH STARDUST I’LL PAINT MY OWN PARADISE. CHORUS ALL AROUND ME I SEE SOUL FOLK ON THE FLOOR SELLING FLESH AND BLOOD TIL IT AIN’T NO JOKE NO MORE. SWEATSHOP ECONOMICS IN THE NAME OF EVOLUTION AND GREEN BACK FLAVORED APATHY DONE BOUGHT OUT THE REVOLUTION. BRIDGE MY LORD WHAT A MORNING WHEN THE BLUE ROCK SHAKES THE MIGHTY TO THE EARTH MY LORD WHAT A MORNING WHEN THE MOUNTAIN LAYS DOWN PLEADING FOR REBIRTH MY LORD WHAT A MORNING WHEN THE TIDE CRAWLS BACK TO REST UPON THE SHORE MY LORD WHAT A MORNING WHEN THE MARTYRED SONS AND DAUGHTERS CRY NO MORE.

MY SPIRIT SAYS, WHEN I’M MOVING AROUND WITH NO PLACE TO LAY MY HEAD, JUST GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING. MY SPIRIT SAYS, WHEN MY HEART BECOMES BLIND AND CANNOT SEE ITS WAY INTO TOMORROW YOU MUST GO BACK TO THE BEFORE. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BEFORE? WHAT ABOUT THE BEGINNING? WERE THEY NOT ONCE A TREACHEROUS TERRAIN? AND WHAT ABOUT TODAY? WHAT ABOUT EVER AFTER? TELL ME WHAT MAKES THE ROUGH PLACES PLAIN? I’D ASK IT OF ME BUT I’M ALREADY LOST. I’D JUST LET IT BE BUT RELEASE AT WHAT COST? SO FOR A TIME I’LL TURN IT AROUND. MY TV SAYS, IN A COUPLE OF DAYS MY COUNTRY WILL BE AT WAR, IT’S A MATTER OF SURVIVAL. MY LEADER SAYS I’M A VICTIM OF CHANCE IN A CROSSFIRE BETWEEN GOOD AND "OTHER" THE ANSWER MUST BE IN DEFENSE. (OR DID HE SAY REVENGE?) BUT WHAT ABOUT THE RAGE? WHAT ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE WE COULD LOSE TO FURY AND FEAR? AND WHAT ABOUT THE GREED? WHAT ABOUT ALL THE DOLLARS SPENT TO MAKE ME BELIEVE ALL I HEAR? I ASK IT OF ME ’CAUSE I’D LIKE TO BEGIN TO RELEASE MY DEFENSE, FIND FREEDOM WITHIN. SO FOR A TIME, I’LL TURN IT AROUND.
