Groovin' On You Everywhere we go it seems That people keep talkin' about you baby, When you come out to play It just drives them crazy They' all wanna get with you But I know what's yours is mine They will never get to taste your Sweet summer wine Everybody knows the way I feel about you And they all with that they could feel the same way too, Well it's easy when I believe, It's easy when I believe you're lovin' me 'Cause in my mind that's when I'm Truly Groovin' on you And it's truly alright Truly Groovin' on you And it's truly alright You're truly mine tonight I may not fit your society Like your friends of pedigree Makes them wonder what you're Seenin' in me. Well there's a feelin' I can only get When I love with no regret, We're not always what we seem But girl I know that this was All meant to be Everybody knows the way I feel about you And they all with that they could feel the same way too, Well it's easy when I believe, It's easy when I believe you're lovin' me 'Cause in my mind that's when I'm Truly Groovin' on you And it's truly alright Truly Groovin' on you And it's truly alright You're truly mine tonight I've hoped and I've prayed it A whole lifetime I've waited for her Now I'm sure.....that I'm Truly Groovin' on you And it's truly alright Truly Groovin' on you And it's truly alright You're truly mine tonight Well it's truly alright and you're truly mine tonight Said it's truly alright And I'm truly yours And you'll be truly mine Tonight.

Dancing Inside Your Mind It seems just like she's dreamed a thousand dreams of love before And it seems just like she's cried a million tears or more, I can see the magic in her and I see the madness in her Pouring from the shell in which she hides. Once I felt a feeling die and I realized I never felt it live. Life's too short for broken promises yet in the end I still hold out my hand to give. 'Cause all I really want is to be a knight in shinning armour Or be the guy who pulls the sword from out the stone. I can see the beauty in you, I might be as crazy as you, But I believe in what I hope to find.... When we go dan -cing in - side when we go dancing inside when we go dan-cing in - side your mind Hear the music and close your eyes. The sound of it will leave you warm inside Like the fire light we dance by I can see your diamonds shine through against the darkness in you But darlin' you'n me'll be there underneath our starlit can o py to night dancing inside your mind Like the fire light we dance by Darlin' you'n me'll be there underneath our starlit canopy tonight When we go dancing inside your mind When we go dan -cing in - side when we go dancing inside when we go dan-cing in - side your mind © 1996 Jef Knight

Mirror Mirror She knows so well the streets she walks we never paved with gold She can't go home where she used to dream, she's getting old. She want the truth, but the truth is lies, I don't have time to explain it. And it won't matter anyhow. I'd laugh but I'll try to contain it. The night seems oh, so long and she wonders where she went wrong. Too many men, they don't stay long, then she wanders on anon. Mira Mira, tell me true now In my Mira, who are you now, And what did you do to my lover blue. Her eyes flash with fight, her search continues, she thinks she's right. Not an adventure, it's a way of life; she takes the world by sacrifice. In the comfort of nightly excesses, practiced and perfected, Her freedom's a higher price than she expected. Mira Mira, tell me true now In my Mira, who are you now, And what did you do to my lover blue. How long the road she travels on How far the journey, the journey home How often does she sleep alone So near the end and yet so far to go. She knows so well the streets she walked were never paved with gold She's heading home where she can dream, before she's old As the morning dawns she knows she's at the end of her rope And she knows deep down inside fate rules over hope. She walked the streets at night so far from home She loved the city lights now they're all gone. Mira Mira, tell me true now In my Mira, who are you now, And what did you do to my lover blue.

Material Desire Fully realized in spite of all transcendence Enlightened by the past time Being attracted for attention by delineation I have studied Consuming hearts ignited by dependence Enlivened by the best buys Love is for those who are truly free Of all material desire Material desire Material desire Love is for those who are truly free From all material desire The things we idolize can prey upon our weaknesses To have, to hold, too much to acquire Being attended for attraction so that all my see You are worthy Where's the point in all this luscious elegance Displayed for all to admire The time will come, the end will set you free From your material desire. Material desire Materail desire Love is for those who are truly free From all material desire. Won't sell my heart, won't sell my soul © 1982 Jef Knight

Seven 03:07
Seven Seven times you drained by blood Seven times I was misunderstood Seven ones you snared to share your blame Seven lies you lived to hide your shame. Every heart is breakable Love is never fake-able Every life is take-able My gun is really loud. But it's never quite as clean or easy. Seven drugs to make you come un-hinged Seven shrugs to justify your binge Seven boots I've taken in the fray, now Seven prayers I say to make you go away. But it's never quite as clean or easy. Seven deaths I've slowly died Seven years dissolved by seven lies Seven boots I've taken in the fray Seven prayers I say to make you go away © 2001 Jef Knigh

Jesus Has to Kill You Because of all the things you are Like the way you cut your hair And the look that’s in your eyes And the fashions that you wear Because you like to stay out late Chillin’ out and actin’ cool Play Nintendo in your room Be yourself, trash all the rules And because you rush like lemmings To the next outrageous thrill Your mind don’t work for nothin’ I doubt it ever will So for actin’ like humans do For thinkin’ out of turn For talkin’ like the Devil too You’d better be prepared to burn Cuz this here Bible says it’s true Jesus has to kill you As I look down upon you mortals It brings a tear into my eye So send your “seeds of faith” to my Humble, white haired, TV PR guy Cuz only through those prayer donations That you must make to me Can I give your worthless lives a little Crass validity Cuz you ain’t candidates for mercy And you won’t get no late reprieve It says here in this book that you deserve to die Since the serpent fucked with Eve So for actin’ like humans do And thinkin’ out of turn For talkin’ like the Devil too You’d better be prepared to burn Cuz this here Bible says it’s true Jesus has to kill you And it shall come to pass That if thou will not harken the voice of the Lord thy God To observe to all his statutes and his commandments Which I have commanded thee this day Then it shall come to pass that all these curses Shall come upon thee and overtake thee And the Lord shall smite thee with consumption And with fever with inflammation And with extreme burning With the sword and with blasting And he shall consume you till you perish And he shall rule you with a rod of iron And tread you in the wine press Of the fierceness of the wrath of Almighty God There’s a lot of souls to save so send your money in. Then say the magic prayer words or you won’t go to heav-in. Cuz the Bible says it’s true Gerry Falwell says it too Ya this here Bible says it’s true Jesus has to kill you. © 1997 Jef Knight

The Weapon 03:35
The Weapon Choose Life They never made a bomb that they didn't fuse They never made a gun that didn't fire There's never a death that they didn't choose They never made a weapon that they've never used. Choose Life They've never forged a sword that they've never drawn There never was a science that they didn't misuse There never was a soldier who wasn't a pawn The never made a weapon that they've never used © 1994 Jef Knight

Just Say I / Interview I burn in my lust for life, full of passion and fight Face to face with my fate each time. I thrill soul and body when your feelin' naughty A smoking gun at the scene of the crime. I'll live like a sinner and die like a winner And eat you for dinner when I cross that line I believe I'll let my freak flag fly And just say I. Love is for takin', the dawns slowly breakin', On the sweat that I'm makin' when I'm in the grind. Never get used up or dazed and confused I'm a hell on the loose and that's hard to find. I'll ditch all the losers and trash all the users And smash the abusers of the heart and mind I'll damn all the zeroes I'm one of the heroes I'll diss all the villains in my chillin' mind I'm the one who makes you thing I'm the one who makes you feel I'm the passion you reveal I'm the secret you conceal Announcer: Barbie has cantracted A.I.D.S. Dispondant, she blamed Ken for her illness and in an unsuccessful attempt to kill him with his own revolver, left him paralyzed from the waist down. As his condition worsened, Ken's delusions spiraled out of control. Always a conspiracy buff, Ken began linking his shooting with the Kennedy assasination and imagined tie-ins with the CIA and the White House. Gripped by paranoia, Kenny secluded himself in his Oklahoma farm house and eventually began publishing his views in his online magazine, Conspiracy Review. Ken: Now, if you knew the President of the United States had commited murder, and the FBI and the CIA were working for him, would you leave your house? The media has lulled our citizens into a false sense of political correctness. The Constitution guarantees me the protection of the First Amendment. Conspiracy Review offends a lot of people, a lot more than the Washington Post does, but I believe that the First Amendment gives me the right to be offensive. © 1996 Jef Knight

Pictures of You Nobody, nobody nowhere Knows how I feel I'm caught in the middle Between Heaver and Hell I might act depressive But you don't have to guess My heart is of fire When I'm feeling like this People, oh, people When you're talking to me Lookin my eyes What do you see? The smile I'm wearing Is looking quite thin I've got a new wrinkle For each time I've sinned Baby, my baby Where have you gone I'm pourin' my heart out to you In this song How can I tell you? How can I find, The words for the music Of you in my mind Mira, oh, Mira Where have you gane I'm pourin' my heart out to you In this song You know I love you Know it so true That the songs that I sing Are just pictures of you © 1992 Jef Knight
