War of Man – Neil Young

The little creatures
run in from the cold
Back to the nest
just like the days of old
There in the safety
of a mother’s arms
The warmth of ages,
far away from harm again.

Ears ringin’
from the battle fire
The tired warrior
aims a little higher
The black falcon
or the little sparrow
The healing light
or the flash of the barrel.

No one wins
It’s a war of man,
No one wins
It’s a war of man.

Silver mane flyin’ in the wind
Down through the planets
on the run again
No one knows where
they’re runnin’ to
But every kind is comin’
two by two.

Out on the delta
where the hoofbeats pound
The daddy’s runnin’
on the frozen ground
Can’t smell the poison
as it follows him
Can’t see the gas and machines,
it’s a war of man.

No one wins
It’s a war of man,
No one wins
It’s a war of man.

The windows open
and the little girl dreams
The sky’s her playground
as she mounts her steed
Across the heavens
to the other side
On wings of magic
does the little girl ride.

The baby creatures
run in from the cold
Back to the nest
just like the days of old
There in the safety
of a mother’s arms
The warmth of ages,
far away from harm again.

No one wins
It’s a war of man,
No one wins
It’s a war of man,
No one wins.

Peace Trail – Neil Young

[Verse 1]
Up in the rainbow, teepee sky
No one’s looking down on you or I
That’s just a mirror in your eye
Ain’t taken my last hit yet
I know that things are different now
(I see the same old signs
But something new is growing)
Don’t think I’ll cash it in yet
Don’t think I’ll put down my last bet
(I’m gonna keep my hand in
Because something new is growing)

[Chorus 1]
Think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
Take a trip back home to my old town
‘Cause everyone back there says
Something new is growing

[Verse 2]
Up in the rainbow, teepee sky
No one’s looking down on you or I
It’s just a mirror in our eye
If I believe in someone
I have to believe in myself
(I have to take good care
When something new is growing)
The world is full of changes
Sometimes all these changes make me sad
(But I keep planting seeds
Till something new is growing)

[Chorus 2]
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
I know that treasure takes its time
(I have to take good care
When something new is growing)
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
I think I like my chances now
(I have to take good care
When something new is growing)
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail
I think I’ll hit the Peace Trail now
Because something new is growing

Needle and the Damage Done – Neil Young

I caught you knockin’
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don’t understand
Milk-blood
to keep from running out.

I’ve seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie’s
like a settin’ sun.

Scenery – Neil Young

Looking at the grave
At the scenery around you
Home of the brave
Sometimes they leave you
like they found you
Sometimes they worship you
Sometimes they
tear your houses down
Sometimes they comfort you
Sometimes they
spread your life around

Nothing you can see
That they
won’t try to give you
Land of the free
Where the legend
will outlive you
When you earn their trust
When you are truly in danger
Where greed and lust
Have never been a stranger

[solo]

Home of the brave
That’s where
heroes need protection
Media image slaves
Live by random selection
You sell your heart
But that’s not
the price of freedom
Where things are useful
Only when you need them

Where will you go
When you need
to make some changes
Who will you love
In a world
of constant strangers
I’ll go with you
If you want
to take a hero home
I’ll stay behind
If you want
to take a hero home

Looking at the grave
At the scenery around you
Home of the brave
Sometimes they leave you
like they found you

[solo]

Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
Home of the brave
