Many Rivers To Cross

Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way
Wandering I am lost as I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross and it's only my will
That keeps me alive

I've been licked, washed up for years and,
I merely survive because of my pride.And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be in on your own
My woman left and she didn't say why
Well I guess, I gotta try.

Many rivers to cross but where to begin,
I'm playing for time
There'll be times when I find myself thinking
Of committing some dreadful crime.

I've got many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way
Wandering I am lost as I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross and it's only my will
That keeps me alive I've been licked,
washed up for my years and,
I merely survive because of my pride.


Maybe Tomorrow

I don’t know how many stars there are
Up in the heavenly sky
I only know my heaven is here on earth
Each time you look into my eyes

You’re all I need to get by
No-one else can make me cry
The way you do baby
My beutiful bird you have flown away

I held you too tight I can see
You’re all I need to get by
No-one else can make me cry
The way you do baby

(instrumental)

You are the book that I’m reading babe
You are the song that I sing
You are the four seasons of my life
But maybe tomorrow you’ll change your mind girl

Maybe tomorrow you’ll come back to my arms
You’re all I need to get by
No-one else can make me cry
The way you do baby

You are the book that I’m reading babe
You are the song that I sing
You are the four seasons of my life
But maybe tomorrow you’ll change your mind girl

Maybe tomorrow you’ll change your mind
Maybe tomorrow you’ll change your mind

Outro…


One In Ten

I am a one in ten a number on a list,
I am a one in ten even though i don't exist.
Nobody knows me, but im always there,
A statistic a reminder of a world that doesn't care

My arms enfold the dole queue,
Malnutrition dulls my hair,
My eyes are black and lifeless
With an underprivileged stare

I'm the beggar on the corner
Will no-one spare a dime
I'm the child that never learns to read
Because no one spared the time.

(Chorus)

I`m the murderer and the victim
The licence with the gun
I`m a sad and bruised old lady
In an ally in a slum

I`m a middle aged businessman
With chronic heart disease
I`m another teenage suicide
In a street that has no trees

(Chorus)

I`m a starving third world mother
A refugee without a home
I`m a house wife hooked on Valium
I`m a Pensioner alone

I`m a cancer ridden spectre
Covering the earth
I`m another hungry baby
I`m an accident of birth.

(Chorus)

Follow Rats In The Kitchen
