Track Name: My Shaman
Breath deep in, hold the air,
I'm waiting for my shaman.

Hair is dirty, hands are soft,
Climbs the trees, looks like a god,
He comes to me, brings my medicine,
I hear him sing, he's my shaman
And he sings:

...

I was empty, now I'm fine,
I see him come, he takes my hand,
Guides me through the forest of the night.
The moon looks bright with my shaman.
And there it goes!

Head up, boy, walk with pride:
I'm having fun with my shaman.
Track Name: Lick This Candy
In the bank by the river,
Ain't that the place that you would love to be?
In the bank by the river,
So far the buildings and the Business King.
Oh with your sweet hands, mama,
You drag me out and push me to the edge,
Keep it fast through the highway
And don't look back, we're gonna get away.

In the bank by the river,
Ain't that the place that you would love to be?
With the sun of the summer
We're gonna grow the biggest christmas tree.
And if we lick this candy
We're gonna have all the weirdest dreams.
In the bank by the river, oh!
Track Name: Girl From China
You are my best girl from China,
You wash my pants while I roll your cigarettes
Just for laughing,
Oh, just for laughing.

You are my best girl from China.
Track Name: In The Mountains Cold
Can you hear her high above?
She's been talking for so long,
In the mountains freezing cold,
With the mirrors of the soul

And her hands hold the ground

Did she tell you old sweet tales?
Did she beg you to stop and stay?
Feed the forest to your head,
Drink the water of the plains

'Cause her trail you have found

O, sweet mother! Set me free,
With your feathers, next to me,
Sing the joy of the fields,
Bring a quiet ecstasy

Don't think now, watch it burn
Track Name: Negro Work Song
No, I don't want no sugar in my coffee
It makes me mean, it makes me...

I've got a bulldog, weighs five hundred
In my backyard, in my backyard.

And when it barks, it roars like thunder
Up in the skies, up in the...
Track Name: No Direction Home
If there's no direction home
There's no time to lose at all
If there's no direction home
We can drive all around

Somewhere for my bones
Somewhere for my soul
People say you love me
I say you're my sun

If there's no direction home
There's no time to lose at all
If there's no direction home
Seek the flights never gone
Track Name: Mysterious Man
Mysterious man, where do you go?
Trying to gain merciful grace,
All you might say, would you buy it?
Oh, mysterious man, why are you crying?

Oh you should've never left your peaceful soul behind!
"But I can't live only on my mind!", he says and cries.

Mysterious man, you think you can choose,
"What's done is done, well, is gone",
Aren't your steps just words for a mirror?
Oh mysterious man, why do you feel blue?

You left your home seeking the mystical flowers of the night
Just hoping for them to come to you,
But in the middle of the bright eyed skies only howl the nobodies.

Oh you should've never left your peaceful soul behind!
"But I can't live only on my mind!", he says and cries.

You left your home seeking the mystical flowers of the night
Just hoping for them to come to you,
But in the middle of the bright eyed skies only howl the nobodies.
Track Name: All The Cities
I heard singing birds tonight shining near a widow
Who lost her husband in the sea, sun will rise tomorrow!

All the cities rise some days with their books and motors,
They don't know where is the way with no end or sorrow

Let be!

Maybe nature keeps us left, didn't promise honey,
Through the river I'm the same, I refuse to deny

Let be!
Track Name: Gold Diggers
Pale hills of chance where nothing's sure
Childish fever grows in the town below,
We came for the warmth, we leave for the gold,
We find hard to stay, but you already know.

The gold diggers are gone... for now

People unkind, feel happy to watch us go
We now can hear lightly where the river flows,
Brothers and mates, your embrace is strong,
Woman with no shame please stay pure.

The gold diggers are gone... for now
Track Name: I Don't Care
I don't care what you say about nothing,
I don't care what you say

See me down the hillside road, so small I am nothing,
No one by my side when the sun sets,
See me by the seashore with a fish in my hands, I have everything,
On my way to meet my friends one last time,

I don't care what you say about nothing
I don't care what you say

Ain't no voice can reach the road that I'm walking
No poison in the snows of summer
See me with my brothers by the fire we started yesterday
Sip the wine and hold your tongue, stay quiet

I don't care what you say about nothing
I don't care what you say



(BONUS: Ghosts

Shall I scare the boys? I don't mind if you go through the moist noticing bones and shapes so warm. And leave this to me. 'Cause you... Don't you ever sleep around the corners? Don't you ever seek the bright and soft things? Oh, you would finally sleep tonight! Now, let it go for me. I've slept for a long time. But you'll never go, you'll never go to sleep for a long time.)
