   LYRICS FOR "NIPPISING":

1. Nipissing
I won't worry, once I get to Nipissing I won't have no troubles on my mind
If I'm lucky, I won't think of anything
Once I'm headed down highway sixty-nine I'll meet my allies, when I get to Nipissing
Someday soon, I'll head out for Nipissing
Won't need no money, I won't need no clock
Walk in the forest, hear the wind whispering
Talk to the spirit living in the rock I'll meet my destiny, when I get to Nipissing
Once I arrive I'll forget my name Just turn to vapour in the morning sun
Fall back to earth with the evening rain
Flow with the run-off, down into Nipissing

d. gomo - vocals, resophonic guitar, guitar, bass, percussion. chris dahmer - accordion. recorded by - steve wilson. mixed by - iain mcnally.

2. New World Order
Everytime I close my eyes I wonder If everything we've ever had is going under
Ah but ya can't think like that everybody knows
You just got to keep on your toes
So I try not to think negative
About this crazy life we live
'Cause those wise men they all agree
Its folly to let yourself get rattled every time you see
That your bread and butter is floating down the gutter
All the things you cherish, just about to perish
And so I sit here and grin, waiting for my ship to come in
'Cause the head honchos, they're so much smarter than you and me
They'll come up with a plan most definately
You don't really think they would value wealth and power
More than the health and welfare of the entire world
So why should I worry, what will be will be I'll just kick back and turn on the t.v.
'Cause everything is illusion, no nothing is real
So please don't let yourself get all messed up each and everytime you feel Like your bread and butter is floating down the gutter
With the new world order just around the corner
But I'll just sit here and grin, with a chip beneath my skin

d. gomo - vocals, res. guitar, guitar. dennis rondeau - acoustic bass. jay shute - congas. vince maccarone - beer can. recorded by - jeff bird, steve klodt. mixed by - iain mcnally.

3. Away (Ode to Akhunaton)
As I look into the western sky and watch the evening sun as it's coming up, and all the colors are shimmering I can't help but wonder, maybe I'll never see your face again
And very soon the darkness settles in, and the coldness
And I'm pretty sure that now is the time I've got to go, it's time to fly
Please won't you take me away I know I'll get there someday
As I look into the eastern sky and watch the morning sun as it's coming up, and all the colors are shimmreing
And I think to myself, it feels so good to see your face again
Very soon the warmth begins to penetrate
And I understand why the ancients worshipped you I'm pretty sure that now is the time I've got to go, it's time to fly
Please won't you take me away I know I'll get there someday

d. gomo - vocals, guitar, harmonica, bass. steve klodt - keyboards. christine saunders - vocals. rob varro - drums, triangle. recorded by - darryl logan, nick chelios. mixed by - scott merritt.

4. Invisible
Don't you want to tell me where you're going, let me know what's on your mind
Don't you want to know about where I've been I've seen some things in my time
Hey can't you hear me, please don't pass me by
You're standing near me, please look me in the eye
chorus: what am I invisible today, nobody hears a word I say nobody seems to notice me nobody even cares to disagree, what am I invisible......
Cars keep cutting me off in traffic, and the waitress just looks the other way
Is this some strange form of therapy, everybody's looking right through me
And when I cross the street, please don't run me down
Hey don't you recognize me, I'm a man of great reknown
chorus:
Don't you want to savour this moment, it will never come again I don't want to live my life in muddy water and just surface every now and then
Wait a minute baby, please don't go I need to ask you, I really want to know
chorus:

d. gomo - vocals, guitars, harmonica, bass. vince maccarone - congas, percussion. christine saunders - vocals. recorded by - darryl logan, nick chelios. mixed by - scott merritt.

5. Playground Pipes
See the children playing in the playground
See their little hands digging in the sand
Watch them play together on the teeter-totter
Watch them now, they're fighting for the swings It's more fun trying to climb up the slide
Going down is far too easy
Slipping sliding, scrambling to the top
Their adventure has just begun
chorus: Those playground pipes have seen countless coats of paint
See the colors all chipped away
They'll be there long into tomorrow Just like they were for yesterday
See my daughter, playing in the playground
She did the monkey bars all by herself It wasn't long, just a minute ago
She was too small to swing at all
Tomorrow morning she'll leave me for another man
Once in a while they'll visit me
See the children playing in the playground
They've been there for eternity
chorus:....

6. Wally Was
He was covered from head to toe, with jailhouse tatoos He was thoroughly convinced, he was born to lose He used to hurt people, I guess he blamed them for his pain And he never seemed to think about, what there was to gain chorus: Wally Wally, Wally was, Wally was a bad man, Wally was And yet he loved his family, he called home every night But most times he got far too high then he wanted a fight We worked hard on that fishing boat, up and down the west coast When he was straight, he was the one I could talk to the most chorus: And then one summer day, everything came undone He shot two men in a barroom, with his shotgun A great many policemen came, there was a stand-off Until he blew what was left of his brains out, I guess he'd had enough chorus: ........ Devoid of any hope, Wally was Devoid of any scope, Wally was A strange kind of friend of mine, Wally was A walking time bomb, Wally was He's gone now but once upon a time.... Wally was

d. gomo - vocals, res. guitar, harmonica, bass. vince maccarone - djembe, bean pod. recorded by - steve klodt. mixed by - iain mcnally.

7. When the Time Comes
You better be prepared for the day when you find that majic lamp You don't want to blow that opportunity And when that genie asks for your wishes you better know what to say You don't want to blow that opportunity If I were you I'd write it all down right here and now, I'd write it on a piece of paper If I were you I'd work right through the night till I got it right, made it airtight I'd work out all the details, till it couldn't fail 'Cause when the time comes you don't want no misunderstanding You better be prepared for the day when the space-ship takes you away And saves you from this drudgery And when those aliens question you you better know what to say You don't want to blow that opportunity If I were you I'd work out every line well ahead of time I'd work out every detail, till it couldn't fail And when you represent the human race, will you try to save face, find a saving grace Or will you fess up all the bad stuff Will you be loud and proud, or will you be ashamed 'Cause when the time comes , you don't want no misunderstanding

d. gomo - vocals, resophonic guitar. dennis rondeau - bowed acoustic bass. vince maccarone - beer cans. recorded by - jeff bird, steve klodt. mixed by - iain mcnally.

8. The Universe is Watching
We are about to turn the corner It won't be long now I can feel it in my bones And what will we find there on the other side of the corner Will it be a world-wide feast, Or will it be the mark of the beast Will we enter the ethereal Or will we all become serial...killers Hopefully, we'll tune our collective radio to the cosmic frequency Hopefully we'll shine and get on line with a divine kind of approach And if we choose the right phase, I'm pretty sure there will be better days Unless we go the way of the Greys I have this feeling, like countless eyes are upon us And they're all wondering....about us The universe is watching.....

10. The Scientists are Learning
Just like compulsive stamp collectors, we keep adding to our data base The more packages of knowledge we accumulate, the more the world is a safer place And so we wrap them up in cellephane, and we store them on our kitchen shelves Then we gather at the ceremony, to congratulate ourselves The scientists are learning, a little more every day The scientists are learning, help is on the way The scientists are learning, nothing is as it seems The world within our dreams, someday could be reality We can't know everything, can we know anything at all It doesn't feel much like empty space, when we run into a brick wall Everybody knows that its a round world thats a notion that we all share But is it possible that, in the twinkling of an eye we could turn it into a square The scientists are learning, a little less every day The scientists are learning, the method and the way The scientists are learning, nothing is as it seems The world within our dreams, someday could be reality I was sitting calculating, when I received a telegram It needed no translating, it said 'I feel therefore I am'

11. There's Only Love
If I should lose my eyesight, I could still play my old guitar If I should lose my ears, I could still paint a picture And if I lose my life, I would not need to express myself anymore. If I should lose my hair, I would just grow more face If I should lose my legs, I guess I'd bum around the place And if I lose my mind I would no longer worry about anything. If I win, that's okay; If I lose, that's allright Maybe I'll swim in the water, maybe I'll fly in the sky This old world of illusion is like sand in my eye And when the outrage is finally over, And a new page is about to fall, underneath it all There's only love. If I should lose my carkeys, I guess I'll just have to walk If I should lose my appetite I'd have much more time to talk And if I lose my way, I'm pretty sure I will rediscover it someday.

12. Cold Feet
Jump in here baby, let me put my cold feet on you You know I thank the Lord above, everytime I share the sheets with you Curl up with me baby, I need your body-heat to keep me warm You are my sunlight and my moonlight, you are my shelter from the storm Wrap your arms around me, till I can't feel the cold no more We fit together baby, just like two teaspoons in a drawer.

14. She Stands Her Ground
He stayed out on the town till I don't know when He was a naughty boy once again She got very angry ya she had enuff She said same same silly game, now I'm gettin' tuff She scream, she shout, she kick him out She won't back down, she won't come around She stands her ground. So he begin to grovel on his hands and knees He say baby please forgive me for my disease I promise yes I promise if you change your mind We'll leave all our troubles behind. One of these days I'm gonna change my ways But she won't back down, she won't come around She stands her ground So he put all his habits down anyway He worked out at the gymn each and every day He got a job, he got new cloths He went and stood before her with a confident pose He said how do you like me now But she won't back down, she won't come around She stands her ground
