sometimes/rock it up

Sometimes

In a world of man made hell

You can always hear a warning bell

It’s deep within us all

And bigger than the Chinese wall

They say you can see from space

I guess everything falls into place

As man and nature entwine

It leaves behind a shrine

From a battle no one can win

It’s like fighting your twin

Both needing each other

We’ve seen the fury of the earth mother

Chorus

How many people must man kill

Call it war, call it whatever you will

Man against man was never god’s plan

Sometimes you jump into a fire and into a frying pan

Sometimes we forget our living earth

She is sacred as the virgin birth

The anger unleashed

was not her beauty ,It was her beast

Filled with rage and keeping score

Leaving souls lost forever more

Buildings reduced to rubble

We were always asking for trouble

Mother earth has awoken

And she has spoken

In a brief moment of madness

Plunges the world into sadness

She has shown us a real war

Something worth fighting for

Chorus

How many people must man kill

Call it war, call it whatever you will

Man against man was never god’s plan

Sometimes you jump into a fire and into a frying pan

Sometimes we forget our living earth

She is sacred as the virgin birth

Rock it up (rock it down)

Been a long hard working week
Now it’s a good time we all seek
Time to rock our blues away
Take the night and turn it into day
Put on your party dress
The outside worlds such a mess

Babe can’t wait to get on stage
Plug me in and feel the rage
Fed up with howling at the moon
For the next two hours gonna rock this room
Bring a friend and grab a chair
Let the music take you there

Chorus
Gonna rock it up and rock it down
Hold on we are coming to your town
With some good old fashioned rhythm and blues
Gonna find a way into your dancing shoes

From Westwood to Hollywood
A bit of rock does us good
Keeps our hearts alive
And beats working nine till five
Gonna keep on rolling till I die
And dance with the spirit in the sky

Lets rock this world back into place
And show them freedom wears a happy face
Loud and proud with a heart of gold
In a rockin world you don’t grow old
So take a chance and dance with us
For the rock never rusts

Chorus
Gonna rock it up and rock it down
Hold on we are coming to your town
With some good old fashioned rhythm and blues
Gonna find a way into your dancing shoes
