across the street there’s a man the man across the street plays guitar he sits on his front porch and strums away his life the man plays no love songs the man plays no funk he only plays the blues and sometimes he chews his teeth black the man across the street changed his sound he no longer sees Daisy Mae he don’t wear no jean overalls instead we see him wearing spit shined shoes

No Luck at All Black cat go on cross my path Good things always come in three's Step on a crack, don’t break no backs Got no luck a followin’ me Chorus I aint got no luck at all No good or bad I aint got no luck at all I can’t miss nothing I never had Don’t need no four leaf clover Rabbits foot won’t do no good Go on turn that horse shoe over Cross your fingers knock on wood Chorus

Please rain on me Break me away from the fire Please rain on me Break me away from the fire Oh, and it rained that night When the spirits climbed down from the stars Oh, and it rained that night When the spirits climbed down from the stars Float down the river, carried by the light Float down the river, carried by the light Oh, we arrived at night We slept all day and dreamt of the morning shine Oh, we arrived at night We slept all day and dreamt of the morning shine We slept all day and dreamt of the morning shine Filled with joy when there’s nothing that we got Filled with hope when there’s nothing that we got Oh, we ate that night from the dish of the motherland Oh, we ate that night from the dish of the motherland

heart of man 02:41
I’ve been to the heart, the heart of man I’ve been to the heart, the heart of man Enter the cave, of the Devil’s hand And I’ve been to the heart, the heart of man I’ve seen what’s in the heart of man I’ve seen what’s in the heart of man One part wicked, one part good, man never does what he should I’ve seen what’s in the heart of man Man was born with a heart of gold Man was born with a heart of gold The years pass on gold turns to stone, a man can’t love no more, no more Man was born with a heart of gold I’ve got the heart of man I’ve got the heart of man A man with a broken heart does what he can I’ve got the heart of man

mary's world 02:39
Can’t you hear the call of clouds they’re thundering crying for you So take your sisters hand Mary, and bring her into the woods Into the woods, into the woods The trees will step aside and make a path for you to follow Birds just sing their sing song, and lead you in the right direction In the right direction, in the right direction As I stand by the edge of the woods and real life Just remember that things are greener on the other side Flowers bloom every step you take Go deeper and deeper can’t get away Can’t get away, can’t get away Can’t you hear the call of clouds they’re thundering crying for you So take your sisters hand Mary, and bring her into the woods Into the woods, into the woods

When I’m walkin’ down the street And you bump into me You look in my direction and all you see is just a pile o’ bones, I'm just a pile o' bones Chorus I got pieces of flesh hangin’ off my chest My cloths don’t fit and I look like a mess I’m barely hangin’ on by the skin of my teeth I’m just a pile o’ bones its not the way it should be I can’t walk down the alley anymore you see I got a pack of stray dogs just a following me Cause I’m just a pile o’ bones, I'm just a pile o' bones Chorus

hold on me 02:36
Wipe off that smile and give it to me I won’t be the one that you defeat You think you got super powers Against little girls that are holding flowers Chorus Well let me tell you something You aint got a hold on me Well let me tell you something You aint got a hold on me Well cut me into little pieces And feed me to the sharks Don’t want to be a part Of your ego art You think you got super powers Against little girls that are holding flowers Chorus I’ll put my fingers on a red-hot pan Before I’m ever seen holding your hand You think you got super powers Against little girls that are holding flowers Well let me tell you something You aint got a hold on me

We’re out in the space child it’s just you and me We’re out in the space child it’s just you and me Let’s float away, I wanna float away I can’t see your face child, your smile pulls me in Embrace you, it’s something I can’t do I’m now on the moon child, I won’t let you in Come back to me, wake up to me You orbit my mind child, your smile pulls me in I love you, I just never knew Leo’s your star child, shout out your fire Leo’s your star child, shout out your fire It’s gonna be loud, I’m light years behind It’s gonna be loud, but I’ll hear it light years behind Leo’s your star child, shout our your fire Leo’s your star child We’re out in the space child We’re out in the space child
