Track Name: Feels Like Home Again
ooh well im breathin in and im wakin up in the mornin sun,
and im, half asleep and thinking, that ive come a long way
from my home....... ive come a long way from my home,
yet still it feels like home again

ooh well im weighing in the possibilities,
that its made a change in me, that this foreign little place
has set its skin to my bones,
yet still it feels like home again

awaits me…. not set in stone
come take me….my new found home…..

oooh im gunna break away
oooh im gunna break away… im home………..

ooh well im breathin in and im wakin up in the mornin sun,
and im wide awake and still thinking,
that ive come a long way from my home,
ive come a long way from my home,
yet still it feels like home again
Track Name: Southern Breezes
oh when the sunlight hits the sea,
im gunna wake up pack some things man, then ill be gone
yeh im gunna, take my truck way down old hill road,
gunna pass by mabe'alenes and see what, she been seeing
down that road, now here the story i been told,
that the winds been blowin south man and we,
we gotta go, so we wont stick around too long,
so if your comin man ya better come along

southern breezes blowin, through the air,
and i don't have a care in this world
aint got much money man, but, i don't mind,
cos it aint the kinda thing that rocks my world
pretty girls and whiskey, they owe me good,
when the musics playin late and loud, you know we should
yeh we're gunna stick around,
till the southern breeze is blown by our shores

oh when the sunlight starts to fade and winds do change
yeh we'll just let it slip away and take the day
the winds be blown offshore, no more,
still we'll be dancing in the rain,
when theres no sunshine all the same, we'll have a ball…
till the southern breezes come around again

southern breezes blowin, through the air,
and i don't have a care in this world
aint got much money man but, i don't mind,
cos it aint the kinda thing that rocks my world
pretty girls and whiskey, they owe me good,
when the musics playin late and loud, you know we should
yeh we're gunna stick around,
until the southern breeze is blowin by our shores
yeh we're gunna stick around….

until the southern breeze aint blowin anymore.
Track Name: Heading Home Soon
i can see the sunset falling on horizons red
i can feel it calling it beats in my chest
i can smell the burning sugar canes
on the wind as it blows through the air
i can smell the booze of the bar and i know man
i know i should be there, yeh i know i should be there.

cos yeh im heading home real soon
cos im craving my freedom and my fantasy too
im gunna fly into darwin going fishin goin cuttin
gunna roam right through the land that i love
im gunna see all the ones i been missing
so long i been gone now, now that im heading home
now that im heading home.

cos so much has changed since i been gone
theres loved ones dying and new ones being born
the banks have changed now its breaking to the left,
but so have i man and its all for the best….

cos yeh im heading home real soon,
cos im craving my freedom and the road through it too
im gunna head through the dessert over red earth
gunna fall down on my knees,
im gunna feel the summer breeze on my face
im gunna let the sun burn all my skin
i wanna feel its sting, now that im heading home
yeh now that im heading home…

so while i been gone this foreign land uno its
taught me so much of how to be such a man
ive learnt from loss and ive learnt from my gain
that nothings given and we all share the blame.
Track Name: Inga's Song
well i thank you for the times we shared,
well say now girl are you going to be prepared,
to start it up all over again
say now girl now you've had your fun,

prepared, to start it up all over again
well all the nights that id spent,
spent dreaming of just being with you again have come,
yeh they've come, yeh well im gunna gunna gunna gunna
start up again
and so, when you, come'a' back'a' into my life again,
well we don't, we don't know,
where or when ever it may start up again
but lets not leave it wait too long.

i saw a girl blown in my wind
and in the trickles of her water falls i heard her sing begin,
yeh begin, to start it up all over again
well we said, yeh she said, i don't know how far this story
may go, well who knows, but we said we said we said, yeh

yeh well i know our time may be short spent
on this country on this land with
mien deutchlander gute friend, till the end
we said i know our time may be short spent
but there'll be many happy memories
in our short time we do both spend, to the end
thats rite im gunna gunna gunna gunna start up again

yeh well i know its been a long time apart away
yeh well im gunna really wanna
gunna gunna gunna gunna say
yeh well i know its been a long time apart, away
so lets wind it back from the start to the heart
where it all began today

thats right im gunna gunna gunna gunna start up again
thats right im gunna gunna gunna gunna start up again
thats right im gunna really wanna start it
all over again

Track Name: Walking With No Destination
well id stay up late till 3am my glass of whiskey in my hand
and worry bout the days id see ahead
while the brightness of the streetlights keep shining
through my window, reflective of the pages on my knee.

well im gunna write my story up and down
as it goes flying out the chimney window
cos i know the smoke that burns my eyes
will clear enough so i can finally see
that walking with no destination knows,
of a story man and this is how it goes....

well it goes head out to no destination
i don't need no explanation for it
im gunna take some pressure off my mind
and head out to a slowly rollin sea
cos all this thinking made for too much drinking,
cant ya see the ship is sinking,
get out while the chains are breaking free
cos walking with no destination knows,
of a story man, and this is how it goes.

yeh well its early morning and my engines roaring
im gunna get on my bike and go out for a ride
im gunna see whats waiting round the bend
forget about my worrying
and head out to a new place in my mind

yeah well im heading to no destination
i don't need no explanation for it
im gunna take some pressure off my mind
and slowly let the peace of it back in,
cos all this thinking made for too much drinking,
cant you see the ship is sinking,
get out while the chains are breaking free….
cos walking with no destination knows,
of a story man. and this is how it goes.
Track Name: Walking On My Land

Track Name: Like Dis

and we're trying to stand up straight man

Track Name: Unjust
holy battles wars outdone, crimes against humanity
all of the brutality its all unjust, yeah… all unjust.
all the reasons we say fight for peace,
always contradicting it, whats peace, its all unjust
so if you look at all the history, in all its misery,
now which god will we trust now i say

what if we could turn these cards around,
would man be rising up and not rising down
what if we could place new cards on the table,
i say we're able, to turn these cards around
lets turn them upside down
upside down

the homeless people wonder round,
their buildings all torn down, for what for peace
its all unjust id say
for my brothers and my sisters now,
we must welcome them with freedom and feel not
the likes of fear just grace in place
i see , i see, i see, i see…
i see a new day shining oh so beautiful
the sunlight shining peeping shining through
grey clouds always come around but then they'll move on
so with the wind we must relate,
to blow away all of the hate
then we'll reep the benefits from
all the love we'd be rising up on now now now…

what if we could turn these cards around
would man be rising up and not rising down
what if we could place new cards on the table,
i say were able to turn these hearts around,
lets turn them upside down.

what if we could turn these cards around
would man be risen up and not wearin frowns
no more children crying behind those bars of iron freedom dying now
lets turn these things around, i say were able,
to turn these lives around
i say were able, to turn these hearts around,
lets turn them upside down

Track Name: Fire In The Sky
a winters frozen morning and my face is feeling numb
a sailors early warning and the sky is burning red
the crispy morning grass is dripping down my
ankles deep in, mountain air thin dry,
there's a fire in the sky, yeah there's a fire in the sky.

all the high tall mountain ridges grab onto the clouds
and reel them in, mount lindzeys sitting up above them all,
she's standing tall, she'll burn no more
the richmonds runnin dry and all the banks sand
gone all soft again, she needs to quench her thirst
and flood to run again, now the farmers asking why
yeah there's a fire in the sky

a sailors early morning warning and the sky is burning red
the richmond used to run but now she's dried her bed
all been parched of thirst, her tears all cried away
and now my eyes are burning red
while my face is feeling dry
yeah there's a fire in the sky
while my eyes are burning red

gums are breathing, fauna's feeding
on the misty morning dew
the waters flowing, while the fires burning red
this land is old, this land is bold
this land cant take no more being left out in the cold
so soon she'll fight back then, we'll be sorry when
she rains and burns and seasons turn we'll finally learn
a sailors warned again
while my eyes are burning red, and my face is feeling dry,
yeah there's a fire in the sky
while my eyes are burning red.
