Walking On Your Hands
Paint Your Wagon LP

People, are you walking on your hands ?
Well, they've had you on your knees
Once but they still don't understand.
Are you walking on your hands ?
You'll know just exactly where you stand
if you try to move your feet.
It might not quite be how you planned.
Are you walking on your hands ?
Will you get yourselves up off the ground ?
Cos if your crawling on that floor.
Perharps you might just understand
Are you walking on your hands ?

Jipp
Paint Your Wagon LP

I need you like a hole in the head.
When you're near, my blood runs wild, and i see red
On going situations start to grip
And all my life, you won 't stop giving me your Jipp
Jipp oh Jipp
Up my street, i see your regulations stick
I see the people as they tick
they just tryto live from a day to day
And all theirs lives, you won't stop giving them your Jipp
Jipp oh Jipp.

Last Train
Paint Your Wagon LP


Desert the streets they hold no wealth
I looked around at no one else
There's nothing left for you and me
And it's not hard for me to see
We're on the last train, we're on the last train
Last train, we're on the last train.
There's someone screaming to get out
But no-one really hears them shout
There's no escape just one long ride
So close the doors and stay inside
We're on the last train, we're on the last train
Last train, we're on the last train

Head All Fire
Paint Your Wagon LP

Changes in every lane she wanted to
Danger was just a head all fire
She had head all fire
She had head all fire She had head all fire
Tasted, everything she wanted to
Wasted and burning up inside
Head all fire She had head all fire

Shout At The Sky
Paint Your Wagon LP

When the pressures coming down on you
When it's time for them to pull you through
When this thing has got a hold on you
When you feel this place is almost through
Shout at the sky,
Shout at the Sky
When this thing that i am thinking of
This is freedom when I've got a job
When this thing has got a hold on you
When this thing, when this thing
You might as well, Shout at the sky
Shout at the Sky
When this thing has got a hold on me
If this is freedom, then i disagree
When this thing has got a hold on you
When this thing
You might as well shout at the Sky
Shout at the Sky

Which Side
Paint Your Wagon LP

Holding on, you keep holding on
To the things you love, you just carry on
It's like amnesia as the days roll on
This shadow over everyone
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on!
If your legs are tied, but your shoes undone
And your holding out, but it won't take long
When the walls are up, and you're tumbing down
Are you made of stone, will you carry on
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side, Witch side, Which?

Tear Me Up
Paint Your Wagon LP


Waiting for the rain to fall
And i know it's sur gonna fall hard on you
Cos you tear me up and pick me down
And i take my life with a wretched smile
So i call your name, and i cry out loud
Cos tomorrow's gone, so i hide my tears
Waiting for the rain to fall
And i know it's sur gonna fall hard on you
All my life you are there to hold me
Like i hold my tears inside
And you built it up till the world's exploding
I can't hide my tears today.

Save My Soul
Paint Your Wagon LP


Take the truth with a broken smile
Even though i know it killing me inside
And there's something wrong by the way things are
Still i carry on with the same old lies
You've gotta save my soul
It's an empty place close my eyes
And i see myself with no place to hide
I could try to run quickly, i could try to fly
But i know there's something deep inside
You've gotta save my soul
And i know i'm spent and i know i'm sold
By the things i have and things i own
And there's something wrong when i feel this way
But i carry on with the same old lies
You've gotta save my soul
