Track Name: Navajo Radio
In the air that talks
In the air that speaks
Words without moving lips in the night

Words that cut the air
Words that slice the sky
Words are moving fast through the night

CHORUS
With your voice so clear
Will you find me here?
Oh, I need to hear your voice
In the air

Whispers I can hear
Whispers I can feel
Your words touching me in the night

You're connecting me
You're protecting me
Now I feel part of the night

CHORUS
With your voice so clear
Will you find me here?
Oh, I need to hear your voice
In the air

Power me up
No static in the air
Talking my language -- so I care

CHORUS
With your voice so clear
Will you find me here?
Oh, I need to hear your voice
In the air

Track Name: Native
All around the world
People are looking inside
The teachings of the past
Are better than what they have tried

CHORUS
Native, Native, Native
Coming home
Native, Native, Native
Coming home

I feel I understand
Our elders had inner sight
They saw beyond today
Past the pain and the fright

CHORUS
Let's begin where we began
The power of change is in our hands
In our hands

Never let the dream die
Finish what they began
There's changes being made
And I'm doing all that I can

CHORUS
Native, Native, Native
Coming home
Native, Native, Native
Coming home

Track Name: About Geronimo
Do you know the story very well?
Will you fill in all the parts you know?
About the times
Those scary times
About Geronimo

Were there one or three or more of him?
If there were -- then where did they all go?
What is the truth
The honest truth
About Geronimo

In the desert mountains he evaded
Every gun that tried to bring him down
No lack of food or thirst could ever break him
He rose up
He rose up

Some people think that he gave in and died
Some people think he was in Wild Bill's show
You can't prove that
You don't know jack
About Geronimo

Track Name: Father Divine
He was planning to get to heaven
About six-thirty or seven
The choice wasn't mere whim
The faithful gathered near him
Waiting for his body to rise again

CHORUS
Father Divine
Father Divine
Father Divine
Father Divine

Hellfire hath no fury
When you're not in a big hurry
Daddy Grace may help you
He's been through this test, too
Waiting for his soul to rise again

CHORUS

Everyone thought he'd return
He couldn't thank them for their concern
He never came back
That religious maniac
Waiting for his body to rise again

CHORUS

Track Name: Lost Bird
Oh, Lost Bird waiting to return
Crying with an anger that burns

CHORUS
There was no place to hide
Except deep in her dreams
Let her spirit take flight
Leave this world behind
And fly free

Differences do not amuse
In a land you did not choose

CHORUS
There was no place to hide
Except deep in her dreams
Let her spirit take flight
Leave this world behind
And fly free

Never complete always wanting more
Is her soul the price we pay for war?

Oh, Lost Bird came home to rest
Scattered to the stars and blessed.

Track Name: Eugene Tooms Is Dead
Eugene Tooms is dead
Eugene Tooms is dead
He lived beneath the stairs
That's his slime dripping there

He was different
Not really like you and me
He was dangerous
In ways you could hardly believe

CHORUS

He was strange
And completely deranged
The only one of his kind
We will ever find


You better watch your back
He might still attack
He fooled you once before
He slid right through the door.

He had strange tastes
And spent thirty years fast asleep
Oh, he was happy
To live his life as a creep

CHORUS

Eugene Tooms is dead
Eugene Tooms is dead
You know what it's all about
He really creeped me out.

Eugene Tooms is dead.
Eugene Tooms is dead.

Track Name: Spirit Guide
Tall and powerful -- Buff and Brave
His long dark hair was wrapped in braids
Met him a past life
Could have been his wife
In a different time.

He came back beyond the grave
Gonna make me his mental slave
And everything he says
About UFOs and Elvis
Is completely true.

CHORUS

Indian Spirit Guide
Wrapped in a buffalo hide
The medicine wheels spin in my brain
Are the Indians all dead
Except the one in my head?
I thank God for my Indian Guide

Tried to channel with tarot cards
Spent the convergence in my back yard
My spirit guide knows best
I put him to the test
And he came through

You look Indian -- tell me how
Where's the sweat or the next pow-wow?
Although my skin is pale
I've got an Indian tale
I can tell

CHORUS

Track Name: Beautiful
Sand in the desert gives way to water
Born from thorns comes a flower

That's Beautiful
Beautiful

Cracks in the conctret and empty spaces
Hiding secret garden spaces

That's Beautiful
Beautiful

The earth is part of who we are
How could we have strayed so far

Mother crying for her children
Care about the world you live in

Make it beautiful
Beautiful

Track Name: Monsters of the World Unite
My glowing eyes in the dark
Have set you as their mark
Oh, don't try to escape
Listen now -- Let me show you how
You may seen an evil creature
But I'm a freedom seeker

CHORUS
Monsters of the World Unite
Monsters of the World Unite
Won't go down without a fight
Monsters of the World Unite!!

Now Bigfoot has a plan
Let's get even with Man
Yes, every monster agrees
Dracula, yah, Chupacabra
Mummies, werewolves and those elves
Should feel free to be themselves

CHORUS
Monsters of the World Unite
Monsters of the World Unite
Won't go down without a fight
Monsters of the World Unite!!

Oh, even the Bat Boy needs a friend
It's time for the fairy tales to end

CHORUS
Monsters of the World Unite
Monsters of the World Unite
Won't go down without a fight
Monsters of the World Unite!!

Track Name: Stuck In Time
Every woman an Indian Princess
Every man known as Chief
All the children want to play cowboys
Stuck in time
Stuck in time

All the wisdom of the elders
Every one of their greatest words
Are printed on sepia postcards
Stuck in time
Stuck in time

When did I last ride horseback?
Dressed in feathers and buckskin?
Oh, where did I get lost in time?

Can't stop the drums in silence
Can't be trapped in black and white
Won't go quietly into oblivion
Stuck in time
Stuck in time

Track Name: Tattered Tipi of Chief Seattle
The salmon were running
And the sun was slow in coming
As he crossed the water
He thought about their offer

Another speech then
From the noble Chieftan
Words that get you thinking
And full of guilty feeling

CHORUS

"How can you buy or sell
The earth beneath your feet?"
Time will only tell
Whose words live on
Beyond their time

He's famous for speaking
The truth about the Indian
And everybody quotes it
Although he never wrote it

The town is known by his name
As all the signs to proclaim
His statue stands so stern
By the Chief Seattle Tavern

CHORUS

Track Name: Indian Bones
On a dusty shelf
Old Indian Bones
Take on a life
Of their own

They want to dance
They want to sing
But there's just one thing
They do not have

CHORUS
A home
Home

Old Indian Bones
Want to be free
Can't get 'em back
Without I.D.

Filed in a box
No names on top
It's the only thing
They haven't got

CHORUS
A home
Home

Maybe one day
Old Indian Bones
Won't be warehoused
Or be shown

Then they can dance
Then they can sing
The only thing
That matters now is...

CHORUS
A home
Home
For my Indian Bones

Track Name: Troubled Man
I'm sitting down in the air
No more answers on the ground
It's where I go to think things through
And sift the lies from the truth

All the world is upside down
There's no recovery in sight
A telephone pole does me good
My only friend's made out of wood!

CHORUS
Ooh, what a troubled man
Ooh, what a troubled man
Ooh, what a troubled man
Ooh, with a troubled plan

And if you think I'm a mirror
I don't know
Gotta work it out alone
I've got too much on my mind

My solution has drawn a crowd
Why do they want to bring me down
My hands don't touch the wire
I better go before they fire

I saw myself on the news
Oh, the video never lies
Like an animal in a cage
Good intentions cause me rage

CHORUS
Ooh, what a troubled man
Ooh, what a troubled man
Ooh, what a troubled man
Ooh, with a troubled plan
