DUCK CONFIT

Duck Confit

On the path of the direction of the divine

You’ll find

Vines of women and wine

In search of the gentle and kind

You can get fooled by the root of the mind

Where your strengths lead you

To great lakes of weakness

Where with tyrants you wash your hands

That they stole from the band of chieftains

Where admirers turn guns for hire

They shrug as you become victims of friendly fire

To take a look at all these thieves and liars

And ask is this what for the world was truly desired

Just who broke in the wax museum

And gave these fakes a stage at the Colosseum

They won’t melt under the Hollywood lights

The West Texas Summer sun

Where the pastor is plastic on the podium

Where he smiles with his mouth and not with his eyes

Where you know deep down inside

That something’s not right

Like a man killing the mother of his son

Cleaning his shotgun

I can’t kill the truth of the elephant in the room

I can’t hush the thought cause they sing like a convicts gloom Where everybody knows but nobody is talkin’

Where crimes of humanity are concealed and condoned By self preservation and biblical prophecy

Cause it ain’t cool to be you over here

Or over yonder

If the truth sets you free

There’s a mute with the key

And the goose that laid the golden egg

Got cooked for the grease Duck Confit

JUSTICE (C.Greenwood)

I found this brand new gift

Looking for somebody to share it with

I found this brand new light

Something within me all my life

There’s so much trouble in the world

Surrounded by miracles

There’s so much hatred undeserved

But it will not work

Cause still our love will be received

Better yet still my heart is in need of release

Yeah still my love will be received

Better yet still my heart is in need of release

When it ain’t about justice

When it’s not about what was what is

When it’s not about what’s left

When it’s not about the next step

When it ain’t about justice

When it’s not about what was what is

When it’s not about what’s left

When it’s not about the next step

HOURS ON END

The moral of the story what is it?

Where do I start?

A woman collecting bottles in her shopping cart

She’s cursing at me as I walk down the block

Mad at what I lost, like I forgot

One man’s trash

Is another man’s treasure map

Oh I lost and found my anchor

In Good Ol’ New Amsterdam

Been looked at like a stranger

By my own helping hand

Put myself in danger

Time and time again

(CHORUS)

I don’t want to battle

I want to lay you down

In a bed of flowers

For hours on end

I don’t want to struggle

I just want to love you

For Hours on End

I just want to get you back

Everything that’s been lost and stolen from you

Ohh I don’t want to battle

I want to lay you down in a bed of Flowers

For hours on end

Yeah we sing loud and proud for a fifth

And it’s not just enough to get a lift

See that man on the corner’s gotta gift

People pay to watch him hanging off a cliff

And his daughter lost everything she knows

Now she’s spotted on the light on the shows

But still she feels so alone

So she had to get good at throwing stones

And the bandstand is playing her song

And we’re dancing to it all night long

(CHORUS)

I don’t want to battle

I want to lay you down In a bed of flowers

For hours on end

I don’t want to struggle I just want to love you

For hours on end

I just want to get you back

Everything that’s been lost and stolen from you

Ohh I don’t want to battle

I want to lay you down in a bed of Flowers

For hours on end

For hours on End

THE RIVER

They’ll take you down to the river

They’ll lay you down by the river

They’ll shoot you down by the river

Leave you to drown by the river

They’ll say it’s love when its not

They’ll send you to war and you’ll

Return in a pine box

Somehow they’ll claim it’s your fault

They killed that little child in the park

They’ll take you down to the river

They’ll lay you down by the river

They’ll shoot you down by the river

Leave you to drown by the river

They’ll say it’s love when its not

They’ll send you to war and you’ll

Return in a pine box

Somehow they’ll claim it’s your fault

They killed that little child in the park

See I never wanted to lose your love

I just wanted to choose your love

Lost in a moment of confusion

Now it’s all an illusion

They’ll take you down to the river

They’ll lay you down by the river

They’ll shoot you down by the river

Leave you to drown by the river

They’ll say it’s love when its not

They’ll send you to war and you’ll

Return in a pine box

Somehow they’ll claim it’s your fault

They killed that little child in the park

WAR

When the war is over

When it’s time to recover

From the time of the soldier

Wanna run but you need to get closer

When the war is over

When the war is over

When it’s time to recover

From the time of the soldier

Wanna run but you need to get closer

When the war is over

Government counterfeit

Dollar bill you worship it

Profit off of pleasure pain

Go to war in Jesus name

God bless America

I must repeat just what I said

You killed all our leaders dead

Price is on a rebels head

Crooked judges crooked cops

Crooked system prison locks

Wholly owned by advertisers

Mother Mary Father Joseph

Father Son and Holy Ghosted Crucified and crucifix

Life is such a giant gift

How’d we come so blind to this

(CHORUS)

When the war is over

When it’s time to recover

From the time of the soldier

Wanna run but you need to get closer

When the war is over

When the war is over

When it’s time to recover

From the time of the soldier

Wanna run but you need to get closer

When the war is over

Yeah our time has just begun

Yeah our time has just begun

Yeah our time has just begun

Yeah our time has just begun


ON MY LOVE

They’ll tell you that life is short

That love truly endures

And I’ll tell you to shine your light

On what truly touches your soul

In distant times on foreign lines I never had nothing to lose

I’ll take a travel plane

To go find you

Truth to be told

You’re gonna knock em’ cold

Well you’ll miss what you’ll miss

But you’ll get what you give Ahh.

On My Love

On My Love

On My Love

On My Love


CARIBBEAN SKIES

Yea the moon lit the Pacific Under Caribbean stars Under Caribbean skies Under Caribbean stars

The moon lit the pacific Under Caribbean stars They locked on one another And they barely had a draw See she comes from Venus And he comes from afar

He robbed a shop punched a cop And he ran off in a car

Many can’t defend it

But it wasn’t built that way

So light a spliff and keep it lit

And sit and witness judgement day

The thief of Monte Carlo

Isn’t really who you blast

So sit up close and get a pulse We can both learn from the past

Yeah the moonlit the pacific Under Caribbean stars Under Caribbean skies Under Caribbean stars

He made his grand appearance

In this wedding colored mask

And he made it to the stage somehow Someone got him a pass

If I was in the building

When the band of villains froze


But I was at the window

Once was opened now was closed And damned if they just thought They fit could go and break the mold Cause Wonder Woman’s bracelets Got them losing their control

You could really love her

Or just want her for a rest

They say that man he knew the truth So true they want him dead


SALLY WALKS

Farewell fairytale end Look who’s dancing With them demons again Dolly got a body

That will make you

Want to stop

Use to have a talent Now a victim of the block

Sally Got them vines

Sally so fine got em standing in line Got em baited in Cali

All the way to Caroline

Last seen in Dallas

Headed for the state line

You know just how the book begins

You won’t hear the truth

From her family or her friends

We used to be together from my mouth to God’s ears We used to be in love but I ain’t seen her in years

Saw her walking

Walking in the alley

It’s no mistaking it was long tall Sally The way that Sally walks

That’s the way that Sally walks baby

There’s no changing that dialogue Cause its bold and cold

And its written in stone

The way that Sally Walks

That’s the way that Sally walks

Walk Sally walk Sally walk ......

YELLA

What happened to this small forgotten town

Where words use to carry the weight

And silence wasn’t drowned

Everybody left for a better life downtown

And the baseball rolls slowly off the pitcher’s mound

As I stood in the batter’s box once they struck me out

I showed a sign a weakness and I swung my bat

And the fire that once burned yella turned to ash

Then Sir Lawrence of Philadelphia gave me some facts

And they lifted the weight of Olympus off my back

Sometimes when you lose my friend you win

Why does it end the good times when the good times just begin

Fortunes have nowhere left to spend

Everybody’s differences have a common ground

We let ourselves get in the way of our leaps and bounds

You’ve shown a sign of weakness when you lack

And the fire that once burned yella turned to ash

And the fortress you built around you one day will crash

And will lift the weight of Olympus right off your back

SILVER BLUSH

My lady love stardust silver blush

Running in and out of love

I hate that I want you so much

You’re out of reach out of touch

My lady love stardust silver blush

Running in and out of love

I hate that I want you so much

You’re out of reach out of touch

And gave these fakes a stage at the Colosseum

Still waters pirates yacht in the harbor

We’re here today and we’re gone tomorrow

Yeah Peace has an unfamiliar ring to it

Yeah they put the youth in jail but they couldn’t prove it

And just as the gladiator can’t never change the heart Of Caesar or Cleopatra either

My lady love stardust silver blush

Running in and out of love

I hate that I want you so much

You’re outta reach out of touch

She left her lover left her lover

My lady love stardust silver blush

Running in and out of love
