LONG COLD WINTER High sky silver at dawn contains Chemical trails in the Autumn And like that old Italian saying says Everything all goes to the bottom Gonna be a long cold winter without end Gonna be a long hot summer, my friend We were younger then and we were fooled By credit cards, shopping malls, Santa Claus and bankoramas Now Sitting Bull is sitting a-way-out on a range Waiting on a change to come and rearrange He'll wait forever Gonna be a long, cold winter, my friend Gonna be a long, hot summer, without end Pen the page in the novel And surrender to the change of a consciousness in chains Witchy woman begins to blow Do the warriors have their paint Are they sturdy in their saddle Riding into battle A mask to hides their faces From his grave Thomas Paine is rolling in his old bones Ghostly by the fire with Jefferson alone in old Virginia My seven sisters hear how the night dives in And it's getting late, no dawn in sight again Gonna be a long, cold winter, my friend Gonna be a long, hot summer without end ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

7 BILLION STRONG Young soldiers fighting in a war They don’t know whom they’re fighting for Men in blue on the billy-beat Men in suits on every street A valley deeper than the ocean to cross Find your way when the way is lost The middle’s gone between the two The ninety-nine and the one of you Time will take it for you If you don’t take a stand Occupy everything on every land And by the way we are 7 billion strong Minus one percent, it’s time to move on We’re sleeping people on downtown trains and lawns We’re sweeping people down the drain so long One man hordes and holds in greed While children die hungry face down in the street Time will take it for you If you don’t take a stand Occupy everything on every land And by the way we are 7 billion strong Minus one percent, it’s time to move on Every page you turn – time to move Time will take it for you If you don’t take – don’t take a stand 7 billion strong Never mind nothing when everything’s in play Don’t hold your nose the smell won’t go away The line is bold and in plain view Between the ninety-nine and the one of you Time will take it for you If you don’t take a stand Occupy everything on every land And by the way we are 7 billion strong Minus one percent, it’s time to move on ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

FOREIGN SOLDIERS Give me a clue How do they start These wars that we choose Someone’s always fighting for The profits of another war Betting long on raking those dollars in On your back and blood and you won’t win From another nod, another wink Another lie to satisfy (Like night and day) Comes and goes like night and day There’s a line in the sand you got blood on your hands You who start it – War Foreign soldiers fighting in the square So many soldiers Who brought them there There’s a damage done beyond what seems The love of god is looking mean Someone’s always fighting for The profits of another war Betting long on raking those dollars in On your back and blood and you won’t win From another nod, another wink Another lie to satisfy (Like night and day) Comes and goes like night and day Give me a clue How do they start These wars that we choose Something’ stirring in the air A door ajar that leads to there A kick aside Something’s stirring in the air Two sides – two sides – two sides War is ajar inside of there Someone’s always fighting for The profits of another war Betting long on raking those dollars in On your back and blood and you won’t win From another nod, another wink Another lie to satisfy (Like night and day) Comes and goes like night and day ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

SUN OF YOUR LOVE By now you know the first and last verse of the lie The one that holds you and keeps you paralyzed By now you know the last and first name of the one Big brother wraps your fear and burns a shadow in the sun In the sun of your love In the sun of your love No one needs a reason to need reason anymore A people turn away from why and who they are When everything is paralyzed, the rise and then a stall No one’s going anywhere and a great shadow’s gonna fall In the sun of your love In the sun of your love My friend the time has come to see who’s holding cards For years we’ve measured life in yard by bloody yard But now the sun is up and shadows flee in dread Liberation’s dawning rays see a rainbow sky instead In the sun of your love ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

WANTED MAN Men in black surrounding your home Door to door looking for the One and they say it’s you No word on why or what for In the age of authority No one goes there anymore And now they say you’re a wanted man But they won’t say by whom And now they say you’re a wanted man In the Age of Authority Welcome to the new machine We know where to find your Child for our new vaccine Welcome to the end of the road There’s no more ‘there’ anymore Only one more end in store And now they say you’re a wanted man But they won’t say by whom And now they say you’re a wanted man In the Age of Authority Flying drones are coming home And the man in the blue suit Wants his money back (from you) Talking trash about collecting your bones And how you’ll be dying – dying – dying Of a heart attack And now they say you’re a wanted man But they won’t say by whom And now they say you’re a wanted man In the Age of Authority ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

INNER REACH All the streetlights surround me In the wall to wall prison of my city Flickering dirty neon over Alleys mean and dirty streets While my neighborhood is torn down around me Too many people on the zombie streets And the sirens make an eerie sound around me People look before they speak It’s getting hard in the inner reach Ever strange beneath the streets All around where all the light waves meet And dance In secret Kids with toys haunt the hallways Stuffing secrets up my sleeve And the only country club around here Is the cold cement under my feet And i feel sometimes like a drowning man in a den of drunken thieves While this world goes on in a whirl around me Makes me cold, makes me hot, makes me freeze It’s getting hard in the inner reach Ever strange beneath the streets All around where all the light waves meet And dance In secret And we enter into The Age of Authority When explanations don’t explain And conclusions don’t conclude When answers don’t answer and questions don’t matter And everything has gone so rude All the stars incline but don’t insist And everything’s done in a dancing twist All around where all the light waves meet and dance It’s getting hard in the inner reach Ever strange beneath the streets All around, where all the light waves meet And dance In secret And we enter into The Age of Authority ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

DRIFTED One, number one, you got the laws of the land Two, number two, you got the drives of a man Three, number three, you got a tug-o-war struggle Two sides of one heart spells trouble Wow to the ships that sails And those without an anchor in a storm Wow to he who sails without a look beyond Called out your name to the four-quartered earth To the twelve-quartered wind in my search Back of beyond I’ve come to your eye Blackened the dawn and told many lies Wow to the ships that sails And those without an anchor in a storm Wow to he who sails without a look beyond Curse this bloody placed I watched My sail turn to dust My rudder turn to rust My compass spin and stop At a point where I could not Caught arrows rip the skin of my flesh Dried with a torch the blood of my breast And when all that was not quite enough I doubled my strength walking with trouble Wow to the ships that sails And those without an anchor in a storm Wow to he who sails without a look beyond Curse this bloody placed I watched My sail turn to dust My rudder turn to rust My compass spin and stop At a point where I could not ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

BIRD’S EYE VIEW He said, “The only damn road you should take is the one you choose to walk” Walking down a dusty road one someday afternoon Ran across a man with eyes like starry moons Like two wild children playing We heard our stories told And voices sang this word about the road He said, The only damn road you should take is the one you choose to walk The only damn road you should take is the one you choose to walk We walked down golden carpet made from an endless sandy flow And fortunes spoke out gently from a sky blue yellow glow ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

BETWEEN YOU AND ME The line is drawn And here we are On either side Of the one and only thing Between you and me Place your bets here Right down the line Love is in your head And in your heartbeat The line is drawn And here we are On either side Of the one and only thing Between you and me Do dreams come true Oh yes they do Through a child’s eye You can see everything Between you and me ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

MAD FORGETTER Living one day at a time in the age of decline I want to remember but I’m the mad forgetter Kind of like Berlin in 1932 When you were pushed to the floor you knew what to do I only ever want to turn you on Like a switch And I wake up dizzy over you Fall down – When I fall down In the tunnel of your love I don’t know how to get back out from how you make me feel And I wake up dizzy over you I’m the mad forgetter forgetting your face But I still remember the sweet smell of your neck I can’t be healed - My wounds aren’t real My fangs are fake – My blood is paint Fall down – When I fall down In the tunnel of your love I don’t know how to get back out from how you make me feel And I wake up dizzy over you I forgot what I heard – I forgot what I watched I forgot what I read - But I can’t forget you I forgot what I heard – Forgot what I watched But I can’t forget you I forgot what I read – Forgot what I did But I can’t forget you – Oh no And I wake up dizzy over you I’m the mad forgetter and I’m telling you how Crimes have been committed And I wake up dizzy over you I’m the mad forgetter and I’m telling you how Crimes have been committed And I wake up dizzy over you Fall down – When I fall down In the tunnel of your love I don’t know how to get back out from how you make me feel And I wake up dizzy over you ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

FELL INTO To get out of my way I ran into your room In another place and time When the world was twice the size And everything was new I set out for adventure And fell into your eyes And I fell in two Fell into your eyes Trying to remember from a place I barely knew Yea – I was a sailor Do you recognize – You asked me if I did Know something of the mystery And I said yes -But not like this You said this way – On down And I fell into your eyes And I fell in two Fell into your eyes I read ‘OnThe Road’ and it ran right through me Then I read ‘Go’ and that was that Get back yo-yo Have I ever hurt you You asked me with a kiss And something had to give Inside my soul My fate was on the line – You sang along like this My love is what you miss – Is what you said Inside my soul And I fell into Fell into your eyes ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

CALLING AFTER ME High hanging clouds yet the sky won’t rain In everything I hear your name No one can distract me – Am I headed for ruin With you at the red light You and a blood red moon Calling after me I hear your voice Calling after me Been here all day and yesterday too Been asking for directions to the heart of you My mystery is when you smile and love me – oh Oh the way you love me My mystery is you Calling after me I hear your voice Calling after me I am You are The mystery There’s a storm flag flying in a hurricane It’s in my heart and in my veins No one can distract me – Am I headed for ruin You at the red light You and a blood red moon You are I am Your mystery ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

DIRTY LOVE We clean the world with our dirty love Like a fire it burns it into ashes of love I can feel it bubble away What needs to be gone Soaring in like a siren song Taking us where we need to be Flying high and in between It’s too high It’s too low Where’s this beat supposed to go We clean the world with our dirty love When we’re shining hard darkness hasn’t a chance Can you fell it deep in your bones Tell the truth – do you Everyone who’s waiting now It’s too high It’s too low Where’s this beat supposed to go We clean the world with our dirty love We clean the world with our dirty love Round and round the world we go It’s too high It’s too low Where’s this beat supposed to go We clean the world with our dirty love We clean the world with our dirty love ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

MY EYES HAVE SEEN Didn’t do it Didn’t do it for love Didn’t do it for fame Didn’t do it for money Didn’t do it, didn’t do it that way I only did it for change Only one way to go I only did it for change The name of the game I know you And by now you know me I ain’t no sweetheart Of the lie-telling crowd Too much glitter, too many neon figures Too much politic, too late for all of it I only did it for change Only one way to go I only did it for change The name of the game You are I am We are Only pockets of change Got caught up in something Got caught up in the running Got caught up, got caught up in a race Got caught up, got caught up in the wars And always, always knew what side to take I only did it for change Only one way to go I only did it for change The name of the game I am you ©2013 All Rights Reserved NWT MUSIC/NWT PUBLISHING

New White Trash Venice, California

THE NEW WHITE TRASH IN THE POST-PARADIGM ERA
Mining a new groove, and with a kind of rough grace, DOUBLEWIDE, the 37 song, 2 CD set from the NEW WHITE TRASH, chronicles the slide of the former American middle-class down a steep and slippery slope to the New White Trash, a place impartial to race, religion, creed or color. ... more
