LYRICS

There are people walking down the street

They're frowning, growling, dead on their feet

No one cares to, and no one dares to

Say I think there's something incomplete

In this life now

What will you do?

Let it fall through?

Well, I won't...yeah

What you put out is what you get back

Show your love and you'll subtract

The misery 'round about the ones you meet 

It helps you to get on your feet now

In this life

What will you do?

Let it fall through?

Well, I won't

We got what the whole world's looking for

Show you the way to find the open door

We got what the whole world's looking for

Show you the open door....

I DON'T FEAR NO EVIL

(PSALM 23)

LYRICS

I have heard from on high 

The words of truth and love

And now I know why

Oh, I don't fear no evil

It ain't got a hold on me,

I am free forever

Free for all eternity

When you see me smile at you

Well it's the Word, it's the Word that's shinin' through

We just want to share what we find

With all our fellow men, it can save mankind

So, won't you sit and listen 

Let the Word light your mind

And with the flame of love

And the joy that feels so fine

So fine you'll ask for more

And more and more you'll get as you walk on through the door

Our minds are free

We live in peace

And our neighbors can see

The love that they can be

Across the flooded sea

DICE OF LIFE
(P. Hahn & P. Thrall)
Dedicated to those who would teach bondage and fear in the name of Love

LYRICS

Why do you think

You gotta earn your way to Heaven

Tossin' the Dice of Life

Hopin' for a lucky seven

Well it's free, it's free, it's free

I know what's been givin' to me

Take a step outside your mind

You'll become what you find

And then you'll find a life

That's free as only love can be

And when your fear is gone

Your light will shine

We'll all move on

Why tell me what you need to hear

Why do they try to teach us fear

We're free and we know what we will be

We've found life, and we've eyes to see

You rave n' scream n' shout

But you don't know what it's about

You fill them with fright and doubt

Then you don't tell them how to get out

Well don't try to tell it to us

'Cause we don't want to fight n' fuss

And we don't want to hear your lies

'Cause we know that now's the time

To share this life we've found

Where freedom grows and love abounds

Stop tryin' to put them down

And tryin' to turn their heads around

NEW DAY

LYRICS

I used to walk the streets alone

Until the grief inside had grown

Up to where it burned my heart

I thought that I would fall apart

New day

New day

Thinkin' about the new day

Thinkin' about the new way

But now I know I've won the race

My fears, the tears, I have erased

The freedom grows, the days aren't cold

This love I've found is truly bold

LYRICS

Why do you worry over nothin'

When there's nothin', that you can't overcome

With a little help from your brothers you can melt

All the chains of sadness

So we're feelin' good

Are you searchin' for an answer

Then listen (listen) to what I've got to say

Jesus came and died so that He could rectify

All men back to God

So we're feelin' good

JUST TO PASS THE DAY

(P. Thrall, T. Thompson, P. Hahn)

LYRICS

Boots on the floor, and my g'itar too
I wonder what my woman would say
If she knew the condition I was in
Stayin' up all night 
Just to pass the day

Smokin' ciggies and some stogies too
I wonder what tomorrow may bring
I just seem to lost all my cares
Get on down to the county fair

New York City sits and waits for me
I wonder where my head will be
When I see that "Lady in the Bay"
I can't decide if I'm goin' to stay

The day feels fine
But the night will be twice as nice
I feel free and there's no one to be
The grass is green
And there's more than my eyes can see
 That makes me feel the way I do
You know what I mean

OUT THE DOOR

(P. Thrall, T. Thompson)

LYRICS

Try to be alone with your woman

With another girl along

It's so hard to feel your lovin'

That's why I'm singing you this song

Stay away from the bitch outside

She's gonna change our lovin' mind

Can't you see that it's clear to me

That we better start doin' something 

Right now

Don't you know girl that I love you

With more love than I can store

Won't you let me show this love to you

And tell your friend

Get Out the Door

LYRICS

Little children, peaceful as doves

Carry no malice, only love

Young minds so fresh and free

Their eyes are open, to see

Their hearts are so innocent of hate

What a lovely and a beautiful state

Little Children love, they love

Little Children love, they love

Why cannot, Why cannot

Why cannot you

And we know, there is an answer

'Cause we've seen it happen

So many times before

In the lives of, so many people

When they've trusted, in the Lord

LYRICS

We are in a world

That confines

But there is life

Beyond the mind

We can fly, We can fly, We can fly

Up above

Sight and sound

We don't need to hear

Or see the ground

We can fly, We can fly, We can fly

Up above the air

We'll leave the skies behind

Past the place where there are chains

To the Light

Coming soon... So stay tuned

BONUS TRACK: I KNOW WHO HOLDS TOMORROW
(Written by Ira Stanfill -  Arranged J. Ruiz)
Recorded "live" by Paul Hahn in John's living room 1971

CREDITS

John Ruiz: Acoustic 12-String Guitar, Lead Vocals

LYRICS

I don't know about tomorrow

I just live from day to day

I don't borrow from the sunshine

For its skies may turn to gray

I don't worry about the future

'Cause I know what Jesus said

And today He walks beside me

And He knows what is ahead

Many things about tomorrow

We just don't seem to understand

But I know who holds tomorrow

And I know who holds my hand

Every step is getting brighter

As the golden stairs I climb

Every burden's getting lighter

Every cloud is silver-lined

There the sun is always shining

There no tear will dim my eye

At the ending of the rainbow

Where the mountains touch the sky
