Don’t Let the World Get You Down

Don’t let the world get you down

Don’t let the world get you down

Even when it’s crashing
All around

Don’t let the world get you down

Times like these

They come and go

Times like these

Just seem slow
This too shall pass

That’s what they say

But I got a feeling

It’s not today

Its not today

Don’t let the world get you down

Don’t let the world get you down

Even when it’s crashing
All around

Don’t let the world get you down

It’s getting weird
And it’s almost surreal

You wake up again
And you have to deal

Sometimes the darkness

Outshines the light
But I know that flame
Is worth the fight
We’ll have to fight

Don’t let the world get you down

Don’t let the world get you down

Even when it’s crashing
All around

Don’t let the world get you down

And when it’s over
And it all goes back again

Can we remember
How we got through

 
 

Looking Out This Window

Looking out this window
I’m looking out at the road
And I’m wondering where we’re going

With this heavy load

Im looking out this window

Im looking out at the world

We’ve come so far so fast

But do we know where to go

Driving through the night

Without a guiding light

Oh Lord won’t you tell me where to go

I’ve got everything I need

But time to plant the seed

And I worry now that some

Will be left behind

Im looking out this window

Staring down this road
And I wonder where we’re going

With this heavy load

I’m lookin gout this window

Staring out at the world

Running at the speed of light

With nowhere to go

I’m hoping we’re alright
I think I see sunlight
The darkness seems to
Fade out from behind
We’ve got everything we need

We tried to plant the seed

I know now that no ones

Left behind

Don’t Touch Me


Stand back, stand strong

Don’t wait too long

Your words not mine

Your life my line
Too close to call
Too steep to fall
We can go round and round all night long

Is there anything you’d like to say
Don’t touch me
Don’t touch me


Right now it’s real
I know I feel
This space, between

Its felt, its seen

Protect exist
Our norm subsists
We can try anything except the past

Is there anything you’d like to say

Don’t touch me
Don’t touch me


The streets at night

Look like a ghost town

The streets at night

Are losing faith


Sometimes we live
Sometimes we die
this world we give
This world we try
Stand back stand strong
Don’t make this wrong
We can go round and round all night long

Is there anything you’d like to say


Don’t touch me

Don’t touch me

Don’t touch me

Don’t touch me

Quarantine Blues

I’ve been stuck inside my mind

Stuck inside my hole
Ive been stuck inside my mind

Stuck inside this hole

This quarantine is hurting

I feel I’m losing my soul

I can’t touch my woman

I can’t sleep in my bed
I can’t touch my woman

I can’t sleep in my bed

If I don’t get no loving

I think I’m better off dead

I got these quarantine blues

Won’t you please set me free

I got these quarantine blues

Won’t you please set me free

If I don’t see the sun

I might just go crazy

 
 

Walking the Street

Your words they cut me
They cut me like a knife
It’s like you just don’t give a damn

About this life

I just don’t understand
Why you love this pain
You push me and you pull me

It’s driving me insane

I’m walking the street
I’ve been walking all night

Just trying to find a reason

To give up this fight

Your space and your dignity

That’s what your looking for

But did it ever occur to you

There’s something more

I’ve gotta a funny feeling

You’re not telling me the truth

Theres more to this story

Than you’re letting loose

I’m walking the street
I’ve been walking all night

Just trying to find a reason

To give up this fight

I think I must be crazy
Cause we’ve been here before

You break my heart
And I come back for more

I’m walking the street
I’ve been walking all night

Just trying to find a reason

To give up this fight

Dark Raven looking down on me Dark Raven what do you see
A world of mass confusion

Rumours running like wind

You spread your wings

And the night begins

Dark Raven you’re a mystery

The reason for your flight
Is not clear to see
Are you a judgement

Or will you let us be
Dark Raven please set us free

Dark Raven, looking down on me Dark Raven, tell me what you see You disturb my sleep and sanity Dark Raven please set me free

Dark Raven don’t frighten me

He’s been here before

History’s clear to see
Lets all just stick together

Not be broken shards of glass

Given time this too will pass

Dark Raven, looking down on me Dark Raven, tell me what you see Disturb my sleep and sanity
Dark Raven please set me free

Dark Raven there will come a day Open your wings, fly away
You may try to scare us
But we are stronger than you think Our spirt never crumbled

When you took us to the brink

Dark Raven get on your way
Dark Raven we won’t let you stay (Fade etc)

 

 

Call of the Wild

Animal instinct

Starts kicking in
It don’t matter
If you can’t take it

with you in the end

People lining up

Got to get their fill

Nothing left

For the weak and the ill

 

It’s the call of the wild

A fragile society
That’s barely getting by
And when amazon stops

You’re all screaming why Consumption
Is our priority
And if you get in the way

There’s gonna be a stampede

It’s the call of the wild

Blame it on the media
Blame it on the man
Blame it on the leaders
Of this broken land
But when you point that finger

And that’s all you do

There’s four more

Pointing back at you

It’s the call of the wild

 

After the Storm

©Guy Hale 2020

Well we got on a plane
And we headed your way

Yeah, we got on a plane
Just to entertain
And the people embraced us

With love and great joy
But fate and its agent
Had been deployed

We played to packed houses

Filled them with song
But the shadows were falling

Tried to be strong

The doors were all closing

Our people sent home

Four lonely musicians
On a long empty road

The seats may be empty
And the doors may be closed

This stormed will be ended When...nobody knows
But we’ll never stop singing

Sharing our song

We may all be parted

But it won’t be for long

Time for our loved ones

Time to get home

Lookout for each other

Leave no-one alone

Learning this lesson
That the world must unite

Be stronger together

And we’ll win this fight

The seats may be empty
And the doors may be closed

This storm will be ended When...nobody knows
But we’ll never stop singing

Sharing our song
We may all be parted
But it won’t be for long

 

 

What It Used To Be

I’ve heard about the good ole days

From my father and the men
Who drank down at the local bar

They’d talk about the times before

The war when they were young

And they’d talk about the times

when they came home

History repeats itself
In one way or another
You never live a life
So free
I think we’re living through

That time that draws the line

Of what’s to come
Of what it used to be

My mother told me just how poor
Her family was, just a dirt floor

had made the country bleed

She was proud and so content

With 5 rooms in our apartment

With love and food
That’s all we’d ever need

History repeats itself
In one way or another
You never live a life
So free
I think we’re living through

That time that draws the line

Of what’s to come
Of what it used to be

So here we are with our new tale

Living through a sudden fail
In technocolor online ecstasy

Those that came before us

They know how this ends
Our world before and after for all to see
