American Child

Original and similar lyrics
This song appears on four albums, and was first released on the Autograph album, and has also been released on the Earth Songs, The Very Best of John Denver (Single CD) and The John Denver Collection - Calypso albums. Goin' up to Alaska Up to the land of the midnight sun Where the whale and the polar bear run O'er the icy blue sea Goin' up to Alaska Up to the north and the pioneer life Where courage and strength still survive And a man can be free American Child, does the call of the wild Ever sing through the mist of your dreams Does it fly with the wind when you waken again When it's gone do you know what it means Can you picture the time when a man had to find His own way through the cold To come back again to all that you've been Can't you see that it's time to come home To the flowers and seas and the rivers and the trees And the earth who's the mother of all A promise once made - will it shine, will it fade Will we rise with the vision or fall Goin' up to Alaska Up to the land of the midnight sun Where the whale and the polar bear run O'er the icy blue sea Goin' up to Alaska Up to the north and the pioneer life Where courage and strength still survive And a man can be free Men can be free Goin' up to Alaska Goin' up to Alaska Goin' up to Alaska Words and music by John Denver and Joe Henry

Wasted Days

JOSEPH ARTHUR "Redemption City"
Here is my voice of wild damnation Here is my goodbye song Here is my suicide bleeding eternal Here is nowhere to belong Here is the vein cut wide and grinning Here are the misery teeth Here is the drunk in the still room spinning And the light in the widow's grief Here is your will of rot but frozen Stuck as if death won't care Here is your life lost and sitting Just floating like pollution in air Here is denial in skulls electric Still buzzing and from the chair Death row blunders, fat man switches The surge which will spike your hair Here is rebellion which death affords me Out of step with these times Feel free as you drink from the blood I give you Swallow my love and my crimes Here is a shadow a blitzkrieg a warlord Here is a saint and a nun Here is a rapist a rodent a Buddha Forgetting the things he has done In these wasted days With your broken memory You find a higher place In a separate world In these wasted days You hum a fragile melody But you lost your way And now you just can't see Have you a dream or perhaps a nightmare Have you a gun or a rose Have you a name or are you transparent Invisible without your clothes When you are naked When you are hungry When you are free to be gone Have you a will Have you a reason Have you a voice or a song This is rebellion A bleeding a beauty This is what will be ignored The morals around us call out for violence Like comfort of those who are bored Suck back your hostage Light up your handle Give all your donkeys away For when you are here undone and spinning There is nowhere you can stay In these wasted days With your broken memory You find a higher place In a separate world In these wasted days You hum a fragile melody But you lost your way And now you just can't see So look into me, look into rebellion Here I just speak to your soul Tragedy's yearning the strength to surrender Knowing it's all just a hole So look into me, look into rebellion Here I just speak to your soul Tragedy's yearning the strength to surrender Knowing it's all just a hole Tell me the truth And show me the sky Tell me you're coming baby Tell me goodbye Burn in the fire As you're saving your soul Then make believe you've got it all under control Tell me to call then show me the line Feel how they fall one by one into your eyes Tell me you see then show me you're blind Tell me you're free as you drop kick your mind Tell me the truth And show me the sky Tell me you're coming baby Tell me goodbye Burn in the fire As your saving your soul Then make believe you've got it all under control Tell me to call then show me the line Feel how they fall one by one into your eyes Tell me you see then show me you're blind Tell me you're free as you drop kick your mind

Homesick

THE SPILL CANVAS
Text book infection started in the month of June First my mouth grew tired, and then the madness will consume Sick of letting all of these lumps in my dry throat explode Next time I will cut them and let the ‘dizzy' ooze flow into the streets eating away at everything bringing cilvilization to its knees As I strap the bomb on to my body, they tell me that they'll miss me And this situation is so God damn bittersweet Gotta get rid of me A makeshift remedy serum is injected into my veins As we're counting down the minutes to when my ‘ambit' will strike again The dynamite is strapped to my chest, it seems the only answer As they pace back and forth with anxiousness Hoping they have found a cure for homesickness like this And my skin starts turning black, and they all take a few steps back And give them one last ‘oath', push the denator, and start to laugh But it's really not that bad, see this was the solution all along My memories were quarantined, so we'll set them free in this song it's really not that bad, see this was the solution all along My memories were quarantined, so we'll set them free in this song Set them free in this song Now, we're finally home; it feels good not to be alone Just remember you must tend to it, for it to really grow ‘A core of enough' friendships remind you you survived Click your heals three times and pray that you will make it out alive

The Dawntreader

JONI MITCHELL "Song To A Seagull"
Peridots and periwinkle blue medallions Gilded galleons spilled across the ocean floor Treasure somewhere in the sea and he will find where Never mind their questions there's no answer for The roll of the harbor wake The songs that the rigging makes The taste of the spray he takes And he learns to give He aches and he learns to live He stakes all his silver On a promise to be free Mermaids live in colonies All his seadreams come to me City satins left at home I will not need them I believe him when he tells of loving me Something truthful in the sea your lies will find you Leave behind your streets he said and come to me Come down from the neon nights Come down from the tourist sights Run down till the rain delights you You do not hide Sunlight will renew your pride Skin white by skin golden Like a promise to be free Dolphins playing in the sea All his seadreams come to me Seabird I have seen you fly above the pilings I am smiling at your circles in the air I will come and sit by you while he lies sleeping Fold your fleet wings I have brought some dreams to share A dream that you love someone A dream that the wars are done A dream that you tell no one but the grey sea They'll say that you're crazy And a dream of a baby Like a promise to be free Children laughing out to sea All his seadreams come to me

Yes, I'm goin' to the love-in to sit play my bongos in the dirt. Hey Punk, where you goin' with that hair on your head? Hey Punk, where you goin' with that hair on your head? I'm goin' to the dance to get some action, then I'm goin' home to bed. I'm goin' to the dance to get some action, then I'm goin' home to bed. Hey Punk, where you goin' with those beads around your neck? Hey Punk, where you goin' with those beads around your neck? I'm goin' to the shrink so he can help me be a nervous wreck... (Just at this moment, the 2700 microgram dose of STP ingested by FLOWER PUNK shortly before the song began TAKES EFFECT: before your very ears his head blows up... leaving a bizarre audial residue all over your teen-age record player!) Hey Punk! Hey Punk! Hey Punk! Punky! Punk! Hey Punk! Punky! Come and go...come and go... Polly, do I ever have a lot of soul? I think I love you! Questi dominga? Have you seen that nose eating? I wanna know for sure! Leave my nose alone please! What 're you trying to do? Listen! ... This is one of the most exciting things that's ever happened to me You know, every time I think about how lucky I am to be in the rock roll industry It's SO exciting You know, when I first got into the rock roll business I could barely even play the changes to this song on my, on my guitar But now I'm very professional I can play the guitar I can strum it rhythmically I can sing along with my guitar as I strum I can strum, sing, dance, I can make merry fun all over the stage And you know, it's so wonderful to... It's wonderful to feel that I'm doing something for the kids Because I know that the kids and their music are where it's at The youth of America today is so wonderful And I'm proud to be a part of this gigantic mass deception I hope she sees me thrilling, yes... I hope she sees me dancing and thrilling I will say: Hello Dolly! Is the song over? Boy, this is really exciting, making a rock roll record I can't even wait until our record comes out and teen-agers start to buy it We'll all be rich and famous! And when my royalty check comes I think I'm going to buy a Mustang No, I think I'll...I think I'll get a Corvette No, I think I'll get a Harley Davidson No, I don't think I'll buy any of those cars I think what I will do is I will buy both No, I don't do that either I think, ah, I'll go into real estate I think I'd like to... I think I'd like to buy a house in ... Boulevard No, that wouldn't do any good Gee, I wonder if they can see me up here, twirling that tambourine and dancing... Maybe after the show One of the girls who sees me up here, singing and thrilling my tambourine and dancing, will like me And she will come over to me And I will walk I will walk up to her and I will smile at her And I will impress her and I will say: Hello, baby, What's a girl like you doing in a place like this? I'm from a rock roll band, I think we should... Is the song over?

Societally Provoked Genocidal Contemplation

Exit 13
This whole world is fucking sick!!! Human stupidity had made me crazed! Insanity frees my mind to wander... I gleefully ponder humanity's murder! Thoughts of slaughter fill my head. I want to make all humans dead. To free the of the ills that manifest from diseased wills. My remedy for Earth's situation, is total human being negation!!! Radical global extermination. The venting of my crazed frustration. Plants and animals would rejoice. Freed from human ploys. I've been dismissed as being sick... Environmentally romantic , but I will have the final laugh. As my own species feels my wrath!!! No more factories polluting the air I breath! No more authority blatantly surppressing me! No more politics, mere games for the ethically sick! No more fighting wars, human beings will destroy no more!!! No I'm alone, in solitude I freely roam... But I'm going mad contemplating the good times past... =2E..so I enact a frazzled new plan, splattering my brains across this = now free land!
