OTHER VOICES (1971)

 

"In The Eye Of The Sun"

In the eye of the sun before the world had begun
Takin' it easy, I was havin' some fun
Loafin' anda jokin' it was all energy
No such thing as you and or me
No time, you are mine
In the eye of the sun before the world had begun

It had been alot of work the last time around
Needed a rest, a chance to just lie down
Always on the go, no time to kill
Alot of runnin' to and fro hard working in the mill
So it blew up and I threw up
Into the eye of the sun before the world had begun

Well I hung around, don't know how many years
No more troubles, no more fears
Had alot of rest w/nothing to do
But I got kinda bored with nothin' to do
I wanted flesh and blood, skin and bones
Multidimensional, universal home
I was space and time up and down
Live and dead, blood all around
I knew there'd be trouble, but I could pull through
So I thought of the world and humans too.
 
 
"Variety Is The Spice Of Life"

Well variety is the spice of life
Thats what the judge is gonna tell my wife
She said why did you have to do it?, why you such a fool?
I can't resist to try something new

Well the judge said guilty in the first degree
I said can I help it if I take all the publicity
All these pretty women, with nothing to do
C'mon and help me try to find something new

You gotta try everything once
You better take out some insurance
You gotta try everything once
You better build up your endurance

Well variety is the spice of life
Thats what the judge is gonna tell my wife
She said why did you have to do it?, why you such a fool?
I can't resist to try something new

You got a full house babe, I got four of a kind
I'm watching six different televisions all at one time
You know I love you baby, sad but it's true

You gotta try everything once
You better take out some insurance
You gotta try everything once
You better build up your endurance

Well variety is the spice of life
Thats what the judge is gonna tell my wife
She said why did you have to do it?, why you such a fool?
I can't resist to try something new
 
"Ships w/Sails"

Well you asked how much I love you
Why do ships with sails love the wind?
And will I be thinking of you
Will I ever pass this way again
I'll be returning some day
Until then, please don't ask me my direction
Let my tracks be buried in the sea
'Cause to wander is my infection
'Till the four winds bring you back to me
Don't count your memories
Think of me as just a dream
Just like this melody, I sing
 
 
"Tightrope Ride"

You're on a tightrope ride, nobody by your side
Well, you're all alone, gotta find a new home

Don't go over the line. You better keep on time
Or you'll lose your mind on your tightrope ride

Watch out, don't fall! Careful, don't slip!

You better get your balance, you have to feel the way
There are no more questions, no answers today

There are no reasons, there are no more rhymes
But if you feel it, you can fly next time
You can fly next time, or maybe this time

Did you think we were all together?
Did you think we were all the same?
Did you think maybe I could help you
Remember your name, remember the game
What's the name of the game

It's a very good game, never stays the same
It's the number one from mud to sun

You're on a tightrope ride, we're all by your side
But you're all alone, and we're going home
And we're by your side, but you're all alone
Like a Rolling Stone, like Brian Jones
On a tightrope ride
 
"Down On The Farm"

Don't need none today
His mind has gone astray
'Cause we don't need none today
Did you hear what I say?
Don't need none today

Gonna run a rainbow ragged
City life's a real bad habit
All the boys are down on the farm

Gonna run a rainbow ragged
City life's a real bad habit
C'mon along it won't do you no harm
We're goin' down on the farm

Don't need none today
His mind has gone astray
'Cause we don't need none today
Did you hear what I say?
Don't need none today

Gonna run a rainbow ragged
City life's a real bad habit
All the boys are down on the farm

Gonna run a rainbow
Gonna run a rainbow
Gonna run a rainbow
Gonna run a rainbow

Gonna run a rainbow ragged
City life's a real bad habit
C'mon along it won't do you no harm
All the boys are down on the farm
 
 
"I'm Horny, I'm Stoned"

Well I'm tired, I'm nervous, I'm bored, I'm stoned
Don't you know life aint so easy when you're on your own
I'm lonely, I'm ugly, I'm horny, I'm cold
Don't you know life aint so easy when you're on your own
Leaving home

Well I got ripped off, wiped out, I got burned
Don't you know life aint so easy when you're on your own
I feel my mind is shaking out of place
I look like a truck ran over my face
The doctor says I'm not a hopeless case
I really want to join the human race

Well I got ripped off, wiped out, I got burned
Don't you know life aint so easy when you're on your own
Well I'm tired, I'm nervous, I'm bored, I'm stoned
Don't you know life aint so easy when you're on your own
Leaving home, on your own
On your own
 
 
"Wandering Musician"

Please don't tell me what to do
'Cause even if I wanted to
I couldn't throw my life away
By listenening to what you say
I'm telling you, aint nothing you can do to change my way
Hey, hey, hey
Aint no way gonna make me think like you do

No matter if the sun or stars say I'm wrong
It's just a song of the lonely wandering musician
I'm telling you, aint nothing you can do to change my way
No, no, no, no, no
Aint no way gonna make me think like you do

It's just a song of a lonely wandering musician
I'm telling you, aint nothing you can do to change my way
Hey, hey, hey
Aint no way
Hey, hey, hey
Aint no way
Hey, hey, hey
Aint no way
 
 
"Hang On To Your Life"

Sweet bird of prey you've gone below
All soft and black it's time to grow
Don't be afraid to touch the light
Don't run from love in the starless night

Hang on to your life it's begun now
Hang on paradise here we come now
Life is like the wind, where does it begin?

Time come again, where's your day now?
Bring me your sunlight, it's the way now
Just spread your wings and taste the sky
It's time to laugh, it's time to fly
The mountain air is clear and bright
Your shadow world is endless night

Hang on to your life it's begun now
Hang on paradise here we come now

Hang on to your life it's begun now
Hang on paradise here we come now
Life is like the wind, where's it gonna end?
