RED SUN REBELLION

LYRICS

HIGHER

Stoned, ain’t looking for a cure
Gone, behind the head I hold
Scrambling to navigate my self control
Hazed black eyes
Lying on the bathroom floor

Slow, falling behind closed doors
Failed, watching her crash and burn
Stranded, hands glued to the whipping post
Save my heart, before I start to jones

Want your love
Need your love
Want your love
I want your loving

I’m getting higher just to try her
I’m getting higher just to waste away another day

Day by day I slip away
See my face I’m not the same
So I grab a hold, and reap just what I’ve sown
Hazed black eyes, fell into a world unknown

Want your love
Need your love
Want your love
I want your loving

I’m getting higher just to try her
I’m getting higher just to waste away another day unknown

(Want your love) I’m getting higher
(Need your love) Just to try her

PROMISED LAND

Take me to the river
Take me to the show
Take me to the place I want to go
Take me down south and bless my soul

I’ve been trying hard to understand
What keeps me coming back to this deserted promised land
And I stole my lies from a fellow down in New Orleans
Ran to the edge of the world and stole all that I could see

Take me to the river
Take me to the show
Take me to the place I want to go
Take me down south and bless my soul

Sailed to the edge of the world summer of forty-two
Can’t believe my baby’s got me turned so blue
Don’t you hear me calling
Don’t you hear my name
Don’t you put me down baby
You and I we ain’t the same

We ain’t the same, no
No we ain’t the same

Take me to the river
Take me to the show
Take me to the place I want to go
Take me down south and bless my soul

Won’t you bless my soul
We ain’t the same, no
No we ain’t the same
Bless my soul

NO MORE

Well I broke out the cell
Lord I’m on the run again
Caught her messing around
Shot her lover man

Come hanging around my back door
Swear I’ve never seen your face before
Come testify with your deadbeat lies
No More

I can’t take it no more

Well I just caught the word
She’s at the red house again
Well mister what’s my name
My baby can’t believe I’m home

Come hanging around my back door
Wouldn’t be the first time I shot a man before
Reached for his knife trying to save his life
So I shot him down in the dead of night

I can’t take it no more

STRAIGHT AHEAD

Three times a fool I’ll be a lover for you
Can’t seem to find my way back home
People come and people go
Just how far, no one knows
But I can’t find my way back home

Three times a fool I’ll be a lover for you
No matter what you say or do
Saw a sign with flashing lights
Telling me that I’m alright
Honey I think I’m over you

I’ll be moving straight ahead
I’ll be moving straight through you
Every day yeah

Three times a fool I was a lover for you
Still I can’t find my way back home
Broke my heart through and through
Tossed me away for someone new
Wave goodbye when I see you

So I’m moving straight ahead
I’ll be moving straight through you
Every day yeah

HEART TO STEAL

Hey there mama won’t you slide a little closer to me
Hey there mama slide in closer to me
Driving all night baby looking for a heart to steal

Hey there mama won’t you do a little shakin’ for me
Hey there mama just shake it for me
Driving all night baby looking for a heart to steal

Come on
Take my hand, lover
We can discover
Why I could be your lover man
Like this

Hey there mama, slide closer to me 
Driving all night baby looking for a heart to steal

Come on
Take my hand lover
We can discover
Why I could be your lover man

IF I STAY THIS WAY

Saw a message in the sky today
Telling me I’m a million miles from where I belong
Can’t explain these words I say
So I send a prayer to the rising sun
Another rising sun

Saw a message on my face today
A crooked smile and it slowly fades
Another prayer turned to a yellow ray
But there’s no warmth upon my face

If I stay this way
Would you love me the same?

I look above the world to see a change
I’m running wild child, please unwind my brain
I pray the moon takes my place, because
There’s too much chaos and mother can’t save us no more

If I stay this way
Would you love me the same?

BLACK FLAGGED

Need to get back to the place I love
Where freedom reigns down from the clouds above
Tomorrow’s day don’t look much better
Keep my mind at pace so I try to remember

Go my baby go
Go
Go
Go my baby go

Quick to impose your words on another
Though the man in the middle’s nothing but your brother
Light another fire with the lies you desire
Unveiled, unaware of the real livewire

Go my baby go
Go
Go
Go my baby go

ROCK ME BABY

Rock me baby, rock me all night long
Rock me baby, rock me all night long
I want you to rock me baby
Like my back ain’t got no bone

Roll me mama, like a wagon wheel
Roll me baby, like a rolling wagon wheel
Won’t you rock me mama
Know it could have made me feel

Rock me baby, rock me all night long
I want you to rock me baby
Like my back ain’t got no bone

I want you to rock me baby
Like my back ain’t got no bone

TOO FAR GONE

My name, lost in time
So hand me a coat fashioned in pine
I know peace and war
Catch myself, I close that door

You see I’m broke down
Cause I belong to a different crowd
So I’m gone, I’m gone
Leaving baby, at the break of dawn

I’m too far gone to save my soul
I’m standing all alone at the entrance of heaven and hell
Too far gone to save my soul
Standing at the gate and I don’t know where to go

He will strike you down
Rain will fall when your time runs out
So let me be, let me be
Don’t you shoot me down, one day you’ll see

I’m too far gone to save my soul
I’m standing all alone at the entrance of heaven and hell
Too far gone to save my soul
Standing at the gate and I don’t know where to go

My love, my love, my love can’t be

Too far gone to save my soul
I’m standing all alone at the entrance of heaven or hell
Too far gone to save my soul
Standing at the gate and I don’t know where to go
