Take a look at these hands Take a look at these hands The hand speaks The hand of a government man Well, I'm a tumbler Born under punches I'm so thin All I want is to breathe I'm too thin Won't you breathe with me? Find a little space So we move in-between In-between it And keep one step ahead of yourself Don't you miss it, don't you miss it Some of you people just about missed it Last time to make plans And I'm a tumbler I'm a government man Never seen anything like that before Falling bodies tumble 'cross the floor Well, I'm a tumbler When you get to where you wanna be Thank you! Thank you! When you get to where you wanna be Well, don't even mention it Oh, take a look at these hands They're passing in-between us Take a look at these hands Take a look at these hands You don't have to mention it No, thanks I'm a government man And the heat goes on and the heat goes on And the heat goes on and the heat goes on And the heat goes on where the hand has been And the heat goes on and the heat goes on And the heat goes on I got time And the heat goes on And the heat goes on and the heat goes on And the heat goes on, where the hand has been And the heat goes on and the heat goes on I’m not a drowning man And I'm not a burning building I'm a tumbler Drowning cannot hurt a man Fire cannot hurt a man Not the government man So we move in-between

Clouds so swift Rain won't lift Gate won't close 'cuz the railing's froze Get your mind off wintertime 'Cuz you ain't goin' nowhere Ooh whee ride me high Tomorrow's the day my bride's gonna come Oh whoa are we gonna fly Down in the easy chair I don't care how many letters they sent The mornin' come -- the mornin' went Pick up your money and pull up your tent 'Cuz you ain't goin' nowhere Chorus Buy me a flute and a gun that shoots Tailgates and substitutes Strap yourself to a tree with roots "Cuz you ain't goin' nowhere

I wanted you And I was looking for you But I couldn’t find you I wanted you And I was looking for you All day But I couldn’t find you I couldn’t find you You’re walking And you don’t always realize it But you’re always falling With each step, you fall forward slightly And then catch yourself From falling Over and over, you’re falling And then catching yourself from falling And this is how you can be Walking and falling At the same time

Discipline is Love Discipline is Love Love of who you are Love for what you do Discipline is self-respect and the courage to face reality Discipline is not rigid It is flexible Flexible It requires discernment, discretion, and dedication to the truth Discipline is Love Discipline is Love

Dancing After Midnight Burning up the moonlight Everything is alright Take it from the top Got to remember Might be an ember But it’s still burnin’ Burnin’ with a banked flame Not the same The fire is low Got to keep blowin’ just to keep it all goin’ A glowing’ coal down in my soul So sweet Just a beat Goes so fast Got to make it last But it’s still burnin’ Still burnin’ Dancing After Midnight Burning up the moonlight Everything is alright Let’s go Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Take it to the bottom Got to remember Might be an ember But it’s still burnin’ Take me to the river Let’s go Here we go now Let’s go Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Hey Take it to the bottom Gotta keep learning’ to keep it burnin’ Make it hot ‘Cuz you forgot What the fire means In your blood, your genes, your DNA When it goes away the world stops turning’ So keep it burnin’ Fan the flame Say the name Of love, desire, of holy fire ‘Cuz it’s still burnin It’s still burnin’ Still burnin’ Still burnin’ Dancing After Midnight Burning up the moonlight Everything is alright Take it from the top Dancing After Midnight Burning up the moonlight Everything is alright Take it from the bottom Take it to the bridge Hey
