Love Thy Neighbour Your friends just paid another call They left a crowbar in the hall And a message that you never read Somebody wants you dead And on this happy day For about the thousandth time Your stupid senseless worthless world Comes crashing into mine Love thy neighbour - It's gotta be true Love thy neighbour - He loves you You don't have to go and face The world outsidde your door You always got the choice to run like hell Or call the law And when your clothes are worn to shreds From living on your knees The State will give you just enough To keep your off the streets Love thy neighbour - It's gotta be true Love thy neighbour - He loves you Your friends just paid another call They left a crowbar in the hall Lucky that you weren't around It's just too bad I was And on this happy day For about the thousandth time Your stupid senseless worthless world Comes crashing into mine Love thy neighbour - It's gotta be true Love thy neighbour - He loves you Copyright Kathy Freeman 1991

Flame 02:05
FLAME I burn so bad When I touch that flame I've only got Myself to blame Can't let it go Can't let it be Ain’t that the difference Between you and me I gotta look And I gotta touch I go too far And I want too much But I've been places You'll never see Ain’t that the difference Between you and me Could have had it all But I could not stay Somethin' always told me Gotta get away It broke my heart But at least I'm free Ain’t that the difference Between you and me Ain’t that the difference Between you and me Ain’t that the difference Between you and me Ain’t that the difference Between you and me Copyright Kathy Freeman 2003

What Happens Now? Don't know if I'll live or die Standin' on the top floor, starin' down the stairwell Fly for a minute, then say goodbye Do I laugh or do I cry? I gotta ask you But I don’t know how You gotta tell me What happens now? You drive so fast that I can't breathe And I can't stay and I can't leave And I can't say what's goin' on If it's right or if it's wrong I gotta ask you But I don’t know how You gotta tell me What happens now? Makin' conversation, staring at the floor I wanna go back where I was before Then I looked out the window at the wind and rain Too late to jump this train gotta ask you But I don’t know how You gotta tell me What happens now? What happens now ? What happens now? Copyright Kathy Freeman 2002

Ready For Anything Deep and meaningless Baby be mine Let’s take it easy Let’s waste some time Let’s taste the bitter end Before we even start C’mon baby break my spine You won’t break my heart I’m ready for anything That you’re thinking of I’m ready for anything Don’t call it love No coming back for more No second time I’m gonna rip out all the wires that go From your world into mine Been stabbed in the back so many times See right through to my bones Don’t expect no sympathy No happy home I’m ready for anything That you’re thinking of I’m ready for anything Don’t call it love Deep and meaningless Baby be mine Let’s take it easy Let’s waste some time Let’s taste the bitter end Before we even start C’mon baby break my spine You won’t break my heart I’m ready for anything That you’re thinking of I’m ready for anything Don’t call it love Copyright Kathy Freeman 2003

O.K. U.K. 02:45
OK UK You gave me less when I needed more Asked for help, you said here’s the door You had me working a six day week Just to live where they shoot you in the street Is this the way it’s supposed to be? Is this the life you promised me? OK UK I’m moving on Born in a green and pleasant land I held the future in my hand At times I try to figure out Exactly how it came about Everything I ever tried Damn near got me crucified OK UK I’m moving on Did what I was supposed to do Walked the walk when you asked me to I didn’t steal, I didn’t cheat But you wanted the shoes from off of my feet Breaks my heart to say goodbye To the place I thought I’d live and die Goodbye friends and family Look what my country’s done for me OK UK I’m moving on copyright Kathy Freeman 2002

I Let the Devil in I was doing alright, feeling fine Doing my thing and taking my time In came the Devil with his bag of tricks Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix Help me God, I let the devil in What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine I didn’t think about that when I crossed the line In came the devil, he was dressed in black Now he’s written his name right across my back Help me God, I let the devil in You was temptation Yeah you was temptation You was tempation From head to tail I was doing alright, feeling fine Doing my thing and taking my time In came the Devil with his bag of tricks Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix Help me God, I let the devil in Been doing this thing so many years All I ever get is blood and tears But if the devil came to my door I’d still come crawling back for more Help me God, I let the devil in Copyright Kathy Freeman 2002

I took a ride, I took a ride I took a ride on the white trash special Copyright Kathy Freeman 2003

Party Animal 02:55
Party Animal You’re a party animal And you always will be You don’t look for trouble But it always finds you With your double standards And your tunnel vision It’s your delusion It’s your religion You will always see what you wanna see But the party’s over for you and me Hear no evil See no wrong It’s a different story It’s the same old song When you ride the lightning You don’t catch the thunder You can drop your standards Till they’re six feet under You will always see what you wanna see But the party’s over for you and me You’re a party animal You’re a party vegetable You don’t look for trouble But it always finds you And there are no secrets Around this scene Cause wherever you go Someone’s been You will always see what you wanna see And you will always be what you wanna be But the party’s over for you and me, party boy Yeah the party’s over for you and me The party’s over for you and me Forever.

Bitch like you I know your story I know your game But this is different darling It's not the same So get back in the sewer Where you came from You might find some fool Who wants to belong To a bitch like you She looked straight through me Like I wasn't even there She never knew me She didn't care But you better move on Cause here I am Or is that too difficult To understand? For a bitch like you You're worth so little But you want so much Well I got something You couldn't even touch You're out of your depth You're out of your mind If you think for a minute I'd leave it behind For a bitch like you A bitch like you A bitch like you A bitch like you….

Black Box 02:31
Black Box Got myself a magic box and I blessed it with my name Thought that it would save my life but I fucked up just the same My box, my box, my precious box – tell me what I did Why my hand is soaked in blood each time I lift the lid But you’re mine, mine – My black box I wish that I could make that box disintegrate A smashed up mess of rotten wood and twisted metal plate You’re everything I wanted, everything I know Wish I’d never seen you but I’ll never let you go Cause you’re mine, mine - My black box My black box My black box My black box My black box Got myself a magic box and I blessed it with my name Thought that it would save my life but I fucked up just the same You’re everything I wanted, everything I know Wish I’d never seen you but I’ll never let you go Cause you’re mine, mine Mine, mine Mine, mine My black box Copyright Kathy Freeman 2002

I Gotta Go 03:54
I Gotta Go You can take it easy, you can take it hard, you can take it any way it comes But if you don't wanna bite the bullet baby, don't play with loaded guns I don't need no fortune teller to say how this could end Cause I been ripped open too many times to go through this again Don’t wanna be here Don’t wanna know Don’t wanna talk it over I gotta go Don't wanna stick around and wait for the shit to hit the fan Or sit and listen to a thousand things that I'll never understand Didn't want to be your master, didn't want to be your slave All I ever wanted was to see some respect before I go to my grave Don’t wanna be here Don’t wanna know Don’t wanna talk it over I gotta go You can take it easy, you can take it hard, you can take it any way it comes But if you don't wanna bite the bullet baby, don't play with loaded guns I don't need no fortune teller to say how this could end Cause I been ripped open too many times to go through this again Don’t wanna be here Don’t wanna know Don’t wanna talk it over I gotta go Kathy Freeman 2003
