BLACKOUT by Van Walker Well i’m on my way cos it’s time to go And why it’s got to be this way i’m not to know But ya best accept it Best not to fight For if we do there will be hell to pay alright Well it’s stormy weather & the sky is grey And the rain is falling, it’s been falling past few days And the night time's comin' It’s still raining hard And the river’s burst it banks & the skies been ripped apart And the sun’s been drowned Well the water’s rising & the powers blown Better light some candles & drink whiskey to keep warm For we ain’t goin’ nowhere At least not tonight In a flood & black out, baby, drink up & sit tight For it’s warm at the bar & we got a guitar So we’ll stay right where we are

PICTURE FRAME by Van Walker I got a frame without a picture I got a roof that has no walls For when i think back to when i met ya I can’t recall And i got a pain that has no name And I have a fear that i can’t place For tho I love her And she still haunts me the same I can’t even remember her face Now i’m sat her staring at this window The pane of glass is all i see It’s like her reflection has become condensation Somehow been vaporized from me Somehow i lost that memory Well nothin’ comes of nothing I have the effect but not the cause I forgot something I just can’t recall what it was So I got a frame without a picture Under this roof that has no walls Now when i think back to when i met ya I can’t recall And sometimes the same lips that suffocate you Resuscitate you And sometimes the same lips that resuscitate you Suffocate you And sometimes the same lips that suffocate you Resuscitate you

ANNA MARY by Van Walker In a world full of rock she is a bright jewel And I was really starting to go under till I found you Thru these windows we can see but never really know Why is it every time I catch it I let it go? Why is it every time we try to love it ends in pain? Everything changes but everything changes back again And human bonds too cruel to analyse We cage a pretty bird but she’s only pretty while she flies So gimme something that I don’t need & I don’t want Gimme something that I ain’t seen but I ain’t got Take me thru the world’s sweet mystery And bring me back with eyes that won’t fear thee Misery & doubt always will out But before i’m old & grey Love will have it’s way She was born in a barn on a bright blue dress Layed on the straw & they tried not to make a mess She was born on a day when the gods were high When she was born the sky was a bright blue eye Ah so gimme something that I don’t need & I don’t want Gimme something that I ain’t seen but I ain’t got One sweet kiss from her lips could transform this toad But it fills my heart with the pain of a loving load Misery & doubt always will out But before i fade away Love will have it’s way

KNICKERS by Van Walker Don’t get excited At the first sight of rain You’ll just be disappointed When it dries up again And don’t get your knickers Tied in a knot For how can we know, baby All that we forgot So don’t get kerfuffled About what you can’t control Pretty feathers get ruffled And that’s the way that it goes But you are my baby And I love you So don’t go ballistic What you hear ’bout your man Hate & fear undermine us If we believe that they can So don’t do your nana If I walk out the door You know I’ll be back soon, mama Begging for more For you are my baby And I love you

LIKE A THIEF by Van Walker Friend of mine I’m feeling so uptight But you wont hear me cry I’ll just leave in the night Oh, for I’m beginning to understand I’m a disagreeable man I’m drunk & I can’t compete So i’ll fade away into the night like a thief I loved you well Tho you could hardly tell I’m wrapped up in my shell I made both our lives hell Till eventually You lost all repsect for me i have none myself you see & That’s why I lie and I cheat And I fade away into the night like a thief For your golden rule Well, mine don't apply to you Don’t judge me lest I judge you I just do what I have to do And baby we both know that you do too Friend of mine I’m feeling so uptight But you won't hear me cry I’ll just leave in the night

PROMISED LAND by Van Walker One said to another “Help me out. The sky is liftin' and I’m sinkin down. Once there was a time you looked up to me But my vertigo was simply vanity.” Well, one said to another “Who are you? And what do you expect me to do? I’ve spent my whole life trying to keep from the ground. Don’t need no loser trying to drag me down." "For you and all your kind expect a free ride. Close your eyes and hold out your hand. You get what you give in the promise land .” Well, one said to another, “Hear me out. I know it’s my fault my life’s headed south But I follow leaders and every golden rule, Without exception to them I was true.” Well, one said to another, “Better hope and pray. No point waiting on no judgement day. You got yourself there, you can get yourself out. Might even learn what it’s been all about." "For what do you want from me? Nothing here is free. Close your eyes and hold out your hand. You get what you give in the promised land." One said to another, “Protect my heart. Take care of my family. Don’t let them starve. If only i could travel back in time I would give to you all that which once was mine.” Well, one said to another, “I gotta go. There’s many a place that this here face must be shown.” And as he was leaving and he turned around He lost his footing and he fell right down. Well one said to another, “It goes to show.” And he stepped atop his head and climbed out that hole. “Who’d have thought it? Who’d have dreamed it could be?? The tears of this world are in constant quantity." "We both could have had it all, But you were only happy while I’s down in that hole. Now, close your eyes and hold out your hand. You get what you give in the promised land." "For you could have it all, But it don’t mean nothing if you can’t let it go. So, close your eyes & hold out your hand. You get what you give in the promised land."

LOVE FATE by Van Walker My friend, look to the sky Picture our home when we die And live each day among the signs That never tell but never lie This mystery can’t understand Curiosity of a blind man Who counts his time till time is done Goes back to join thy kingdom come For nothing is right & nothing is wrong We’re livin the life, we’re singin' the song You get what you give, go back were ya from But nothing is right & nothing is wrong In this world in which we live It has to be the way it is And in the end you can take it or leave The highs & lows & inbetween For nothing is right & nothing is wrong We’re livin the life, we’re singin' the song You get what you give, go back were ya from But nothing is right & nothing is wrong For nothing is right & nothing is wrong We’re livin the life, we’re singin' the song Summer's still here, summer long gone But nothing is right & nothing is wrong

MIDNIGHT SUN by Van Walker Man, the ice is bright tonight And the sky's as blue as the early morning light Wish I could feed upon the light But the light is cursed to feed on darkness till it dies And i’m running out of time I gave you my eyes still you can’t see why I am blind But a time will come Here in the land of the midnight sun The sun’s they circle empty space And my own dark solitude only illuminates The happy sunburnt crew you’re with Tho the giving hand gets calloused every time it gives For I live in my own light And drink back into myself the flames that break from me tonight And I catch sleep on the run Here in the land of the midnight sun
