Recorded in Woodstock, NY

lyrics

Give me fire, give me soul
Waited a long time to let go
Don't want the mountains or their gold
Just give me reason to play on
In this penny opera

In the morning time I hear the ships in the harbor
Singing melodies of love lost beneath the silence
How will I
Carry the load

When I was a child, I wore a crown
Waited a long time to let it show
Don't want the King's land or the paupers robe
A little bit of freedom and some understanding
Left on desire right on piety

In the morning time I hear the ships in the harbor
Singing melodies of love lost beneath the violence
How will I
Carry the load

I'm sorry for your loss
I've given up on your songs
The red and the white and the blues are bringing you down.

Chorus:
