      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
