    Lyrics:

    Waiting All Night

    I’m waiting all night for you, girl
    I’m waiting all night for you
    Too old to cry, too young to know why
    I don’t know what I will do

    I’m finding it hard to think, girl
    I’m finding it hard to feel
    And the hands on the clock
    They move so slow
    And time is so very real

    You should have known my feelings
    You should have guessed I’d be
    Waiting for you, such useless love
    It kills me that I am free

    By morning I’ll be gone, girl
    The sun will clear my mind
    I’ve wasted enough time
    It’s been all of my life
    But now the dream has died

  2. Occupy Wall Street song

    No It's Not OK

    Well you work all your life just to make ends meet
    Forget about a pension or Social Security
    You'll be working until you're eighty
    That's downward mobility

    No It's not OK
    There's a better way
    People lead the way
    And we won't stop at Wall Street

    The game is stacked in the one percent's favor
    And we the ninety-nine are not allowed at the table
    The GDP says wealth is being created
    But it floats up to the top away from those who generate it

    No It's not OK
    There's a better way
    People lead the way
    And we won't stop at Wall Street

    They know that to conquer they must first divide
    So they stoke up discontentment against those who are unionized
    Who have nice pensions and sane working hours too
    But instead of tearing them down why not build up you and me?
    Because you deserve the same things for your labor
    And the ninety-nine percent are your friends and your neighbors

    No It's not OK
    There's a better way
    People lead the way
    And we won't stop at Wall Street

    We don't want a handout we just want what we've earned
    And a fair shake for those who have been so badly burned
    Holding criminals responsible, what could be more mainstream?
    It's time to stop the theft of the American Dream

    No It's not OK
    There's a better way
    People lead the way
    And we won't stop at Wall Street

  3. "Permission" performed live at Otto's Shrunken Head in New York City in 2010. In full tiger regalia.

    Lyrics:
    You don't need permission
    You don't need permission
    You don't need permission
    Go on ahead and sing the blues

    You don't need excuses
    You don't need excuses
    You don't need excuses
    Go on ahead and sing the blues

    You're a human being
    You're a human being
    You're a human being
    You're perfectly qualified to sing the blues

    Lyrics to my song about Otto's:

    Live It Up Before You're Dead

    Creepy Tiki faces they're guarding Otto's shrunken head
    Take me - you've got to live it up before you're dead

     I was born half-tiger and half-man
    A polynesian island in the middle of the ocean was my home
    One day explorers cam ashore, trapped me in a net to ship me
    far across the ocean all alone

    They let me keep this old guitar, through my incarceration
    I kept practicing and playing days and nights
    Fate intervenes and set me free, ship went down on rocks
    and I swam toward those blazing city lights

    Creepy Tiki faces they're guarding Otto's shrunken head
    Take me - you've got to live it up before you're dead

    I walked the streets for days on end, looking for a friendly face
    but everybody laughed at me and stared

    Stopped in my tracks on 14th Street, something seemed familiar
    about those silent Tiki faces frowning there 
    I went inside it was like home - felt like I was
    grooving on my old Polynesian island once again.
    Creepy Tiki faces they're guarding Otto's shrunken head
    Take me - you've got to live it up before you're dead
