Track Name: People's Temple (Intro)
i'm here, i'm here to set you free,
little lady, bring your problems to me,

the world, the world doesn't understand you,
little lady, bring your problem to me,
i'll show you how happy everybody can be
Track Name: Manic Beat
out in the fields of my own personal hell,
i picked all the flowers to find out you had left,
drank from a fountain and it made me lose my balance,
and before i knew what happened i had filled up my chalice

give it some time and it will grow on you,
and if you let yourself then you will grow to it too,

came to a crossroad, couldn't take another step,
i had lost my shoes a while ago and now i'm stuck in sand,
i spent my days looking away from strangers that come by,
don't look me in the eyes, i'm shy,

give it some time and it will grow on you,
and if you let yourself then you will grow to it too

my days at the crossroads, oh they came to an end,
when a monk showed up and he lend me his hand.
but nowadays in the monastery,
oh the sands of the crossroads still shows up in my bag,
Track Name: Appointment/Disappointment
without the right state of mind you will fall through your time

and you can't lean down on me, you can't lift up from the ground to see

'cause you run from the gun, you can't stop having fun

but you left me to carry the weight for both of us, buddy

and you woke in clouds of smoke, deranged from the dope

and you burst out to me, i'm the vile, the worst that you could see
Track Name: Bloemetjesjurk
i bought you a flower dress
i can't wait for you to put it on
why am i seeing you less and less
ever since i've been singing this song

where have you gone

i sold your flower dress
to the man at the market stand
i sold it to make the rent
it's been hard and times are long

where have you gone
what did i do wrong

i sold your flower dress
to the man at the market stand
i wanted to tell you that
but there's no ears to hear my song

where have i gone wrong
where have you gone
what did i do wrong
Track Name: Old Bones
the weak men fought above the young men's grave
the grieving thoughts had left my mind
i wasn't aware of father time
standing behind the big oak tree

oh my brother won't you stop
there's no time for discouraging thoughts
we're all slowly falling apart

the weak men left the cemetery
and i took the time to enjoy the quiet
the birds and the bees were staring at me
until i felt down, down and tired

oh my sister won't you stop
there's no time for discouraging thoughts
and we're all slowly falling apart

but you don't give me a reason to live
don't give me a reason to live
Track Name: New Gun Pt. II
take me out to dinner, you can wear your fancy shoes
and i won't start again, about times that we once knew
i see you brought a new friend, are you guys still running wild
while i'm down in my head, i can't see a way out

you take me out to dinner, and i feel a bit of unease
as you say to me there's no time left to breathe
i can feel the cold metal i got tucked in my pants
i bought a new gun for you and your friend

so get down on the ground, i won't tell you again
put your hands behind your head, the same counts for your friend
i'm down in the dumps, can't you see i'm going mad
everybody sees me now, put the bullet in the back
