 1. Man On The Silver Mountain
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm a wheel,I'm a wheel
I can roll,I can feel
And you can't stop me turning
Cause I'm the sun,I'm the sun
I can move,I can run
But you'll never stop me burning
Come down with fire
Life my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the day,I'm the day
I can show you the way
And look I'm right beside you
I'm the night,I'm the night
I'm the dark and the light
With eyes that see inside you
Come down with fire
Life my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain
Come down with fire
Life my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain
Just look at me and listen
I'm the man,the man,give you my hand
Come down with fire
Life my spirit higher
I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the night and the light
I'm the black and the white
The man on the silver mountain



 2. Self Portrait
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Paint me a picture
And hand it on the wall
Colour it darkly
The lines must start to crawl
Down,down,down

Spin me around and around
Draw me away
To the night from the day
Leave not a trace to be found
Down,down

Nothing is real
But the way that I feel
And I feel like going
Down,down...

Paint me a picture
Of eyes that never see
With flaskes of lightning
That burn for only me
Hey,hey,hey

There's only the devil to pay
I'm ready to go
Pull me down from below
Give me a place I can lay
Hey,hey

Nothing is real
But the way that I feel
And I feel like going down          Refrain
Down,down...

Refrain}*2 times



 3. Black Sheep Of The Family
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I got nothing in my head
Got a floor for a bed
The future's at the bottom of a tea cup
I got a half a pair of shoes
And no time to lose
I'm wondering when I'm going to wise up
So Fortune shine your light on me and my clothes
Cause we need some security
You get a little bad luck
And it grows and it grows

I'm the black sheep of the family
I've got half a pound of rice
A beard full of lice
A mission called retrogression
I got pocket full of dust
And eating is a must

You want to make a good impression
So Fortune shine your light on me and my dog
Cause we need some security
While all the folks are living high up the hill

I'm the black sheep of the family
Don't talk to me about society
You got to play the rules
Or pay the penalty
Because a hand full of blues
Double indemnity
The hour was gone
And my shadow's getting long
My real life's a song on me
But I've got an ache in my head
I want to go to bed
Tomorrow I don't have to wake up

So Wisdom shine your light on me and my knees

Cause it's true what they say about familiarity   \
There's nothing good this way                      |x2 times
And it's true what they say                        |
I'm the black sheep of the family                 /



4. Catch The Rainbow
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When evening falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can't see
Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away or ships of wonder
But life's not a wheel

With chains made of steel
So bless me come the down
Come the down

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder
But life's not a wheel


                            Side two

   1. SNAKE CHARMER
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Old hollow eyes
Got no ties
Walking by the light of the moon
A pair of shiny boots
With strings and flutes
Rising like a crazy balloom
Close your door
He's on the loose
Here he comes
No hope for you
Ooh Shake Charmer

Hey mystery man
What's your plan
I've got to tell the world
To beware you don't care
He'll hipnotise you
And tell you lies
He's hiding at the top of the stairs
Close your door
I see him coming out
There's no hope for you
Ooh Snake Charmer
Shake Charmer

Hey fancy face
Got no place
Living from a hole in the ground
Old sparkle eyes
He never cries
One step ahead of the hounds
Close your door
He's on his way
He's coming out of the shadows now
There's no hope for you
Ooh Snake Charmer
Shake Charmer

Old hollow eyes
Got no ties
Play your strings and flutes
Mystery man what's your plan
Snake Charmer
He'll harm yer


   2. THE TEMPLE OF THE KING
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell
One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to ring
Meant the time had come
For one to go
To the temple of the king

There in the middle of the circle he stands
Searching, seeking
With just one touch of his trembling hand
The answer will be found
Daylight waits while the old man sings
Heaven help me
And then like the rush of the thousand wings
It shines upon the one
And the day had just begun
One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
Heard the tolling of the great black bell
One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to sing
Meant the time had come
For one to go
To the temple of the king

There in the middle of the people he stands
Seeing, feeling
With just a wave of a strong right hand
He's gone to the temple of the king
Far from the circle at the edge of the world
He's hoping, wondering
Thinking back on the stories he's heard
Of what he's going to see
There in the middle of the circle it lies
Heaven help me
Then all could see by the shine in his eyes
The answer had been found
Back with the people in the circle he stands
Giving, feeling
With just one touch of a strong right hand
They know of the temple and the king


   3. IF YOU DON'T LIKE ROCK"N"ROLL
  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You'd never know there was some music playing
Until you talked your way inside the door
And then a sound like rolling thunder
Begins to push you right thru' the floor
And there's a great white sign
With big black letters
That just about explains it all
If you don't like rock'n'roll     }  3 times
Then it's too late now
Well it's too late now

Of course there was the usual lady
And she was dressed the way the stories tell
So bein' cool I made a move to grab her
But you could see she read the story well
And then she wipped out a card
With big black letters
That just about explained it all
Well if you don't like rock'n'roll
If you don't like rock'n'roll
Well if you don't like rock'n'roll
Then you're too late now
Well you're too late now
