Five For Fighting Road To Heaven

Sometimes I think about silly things

It’s easy to do if you have the time

Often happens when I’m falling off to sleep

After a second glass of wine

The clock is usually running out

Down by one or could be tied

I’m fading back

Winding up

The championship on the line…but…

What if there was a road to heaven

That’s what came to me today

Would there be Traffic jams with diamond lanes

Potholes filled up with rain

Would there be Tolls still left to pay

If there was a road to heaven

Made of gold or made out of clay

Would the Angels wave me up the hill

Or in my mirror just fade away

I’ve never been the kind a man who hits his knees

Got no answers for big questions

I don’t know…

Maybe tomorrow lightning will hit me on the head

And we can find out if we’re just a joke

Jesus I’m told can build a bridge

Finer than any other man

There’s a certain peace to an country road

With a wheel in your hand

If there was a road to heaven

Would there be laws I must obey

If I drove my mustang 85

Late one night turned out the lights

Would the stars still light the way

If there was a road to heaven

Made of Gold or Made of Clay

Would the Angels lead me up the hill

Or in my mirror just fade away

Night turns morning

The old man should be snoring

I got to get some sleep before I’m awake

Up with the monkeys

I sure love the monkeys

But This job ain’t all cookies and cake

Sometimes I think about silly things

It’s easy to do if you got the wine

In The Eagle we’re landing

I’m the President

Or a foreign king

With a harem from Encino to Brunei

But if there was a road to heaven

It’d be one long and crazy ride…

If there was a road to heaven babe

That’s a road that I’d like to find.

Five For Fighting The Day I Died

I woke up

You next to me

You said Good Morning

Are you Free

The sun crept in

For one last time

I was alive the day I died

The clock struck noon

But did not care

I saw a child

In my old chair

A shadow fell across your face

But all the years

Could not erase

I was alive, I was alive

You pulled me close

I held you tight

Though my smiles told a few lies

I was alive the day I died

I was the first to see a star

It seemed so close

It was so far

Wind started to roar

Screamed time to go

You know all you need

You need all you know

I was alive, I was alive

You pulled me close

I held you tight

And though our smiles told a few lies

I was alive the day I died

Oh Sweet Angel you call

Oh Sweet Angel you call

Oh Sweet Angel

White went black

Black went white

Universe cracked

I saw the light

You called my name

I did not respond

But I heard you well

Carried you on

Midnight came and I was gone

The planet shrugged and moved along

A few people noticed and sang my songs

I was alive the day I died

I was alive the day I died

Five For Fighting I Just Love You

Lonely, yeah that’s the word

I leave my heart when I leave her

The days go on forever and the nights do too

One evening out on the road

A half a world away from home

I thought she was sleeping

When the call came through

I said, Darling, it’s late, is everything ok

Silence took over the room

Til she said

I… I just Love You

I Don’t Know Why, I Just Do

When are you coming home

I’m coming home soon

And I just love you too

Lonely lets me be

For a while she sets me free

I close my eyes and I dream of her

She’s lost in my arms

Her head on my heart

And softly she whispers the words

I…I just Love You

I Don’t Know Why, I Just Do

When are you coming home

I’m coming home soon

And I just love you too

I’ll never stop being amazed

How my 4-year old girl knows exactly what to say

I, I just Love You

I Don’t Know Why, I Just Do

When are you coming home

I’m coming home soon

Cause I just love you too

Five For Fighting Policeman’s Xmas Party

Welcome to the first day of the rest of my life

The tension is so think you can cut it with a knife

Something’s happened:Things will never be the same

There’s blood on the carpet – I’m rewiring my brain

I got some new friends down at West Valley PD

You can change the channel but I’m all that’s on TV

The only good news is that he’s going to be o.k.

Got a bomb in my stomach but I’m dreaming that one day

I’ll be going to a Policeman’s Xmas party

Have a couple beers get funky on the dance floor

Going to a Policeman’s Xmas party

Gonna have a good time for the rest of my life…

4 weeks later it’s still Raining in the Park

Marine with a gun guards my house now after dark

I look for clues like I’m Inspector Clouseau

You can have my money honey I just want to go

Go to a policeman’s Xmas party

Have a couple beers get my funky on the dance floor

Go to a policeman’s Xmas party

Gonna have a good time for the rest of my life…

There’s Cops on the ceiling

There’s Cops on the floor

There’s Cops in the windows

Cops breaking down the door

You’ll never feel safer in your life

The Captain even likes to get freaky on my wife

We’re going to a Policeman’s Xmas party

Have a couple beers get my funky on the dance floor

Going to a Policeman’s Xmas party

Gonna have a good time for the rest…

Welcome to the best day of the rest of my life

My buddies broke the case and now it’s gonna be alright

Moral of the story, it don’t matter who you are

Be careful what you wish for they’ll be calling you a rock star

People from Earth there’s never been a harder core

Party like this party in a million years or more

The floor itself is hopping like a freaking kangaroo

The D.J.’s in his P.J.’s playing…”everybody wants you!”

Going to a policeman’s Xmas party

Have a couple beers get funky on the dance floor

Going to a policeman’s Xmas party

Going to have a good time the rest of my life!

Take off your clothes

Take off everything you are

Take off your heart

Get funky on the dance floor

Going to have a good time for the rest…

Five For Fighting Superman (It’s Not Easy)

I can’t stand to fly

I’m not that naïve

I’m just out to find

The better part of me

I’m more than a bird,

I’m more than a plane

I’m more than some pretty face beside a train

It’s not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry

Fall upon my knees

Find a way to lie

‘Bout a home I’ll never see

It may sound absurd but don’t be naïve

Even heroes have the right to bleed

I may be disturbed but won’t you concede

Even heroes have the right to dream

And it’s not easy to be me

Up, up and away, away from me

Well, it’s alright

You can all sleep sound tonight

I’m not crazy or anything

I can’t stand to fly

I’m not that naïve

Men weren’t meant to ride

With clouds between their knees

I’m only a man in a silly red sheet

Digging for kryptonite on this one way street

Only a man in a funny red sheet

Looking for special things inside of me

Inside of me, inside of me [2x]

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet

I’m only a man looking for a dream

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet

And it’s not easy.

It’s not easy to be me.

Five For Fighting (European B-Side)

Finally in the meantime since you paid for my room

I thought I’d write the European B-side or 2

See Mr. Merry’s in the garden

Trying to tie his high top shoes

Johnny’s off of daff-dill mountian

Praying for the news

and Oh what a piece I am

if you’d…be my friend

Thanks to all that you made me replace

For all you gave to me you left on my face

See Mr. Merry is the garden

Bella’s taking ludes

Daddy’s off without a pardon

But nothing left to lose

and Oh what a piece I am

Oh what a piece I am

If you’d…be my friend

if you

would you

be my friend

Five For Fighting The Devil In The Wishing Well

I met Jane at the center of the earth

It was dark there was dirt all around

But I gather you can figure that

Jane says I’m your body in the night

And I’ll lead you where you might find yourself

Better if you follow me

So go right you’ll be left at a big hotel

You’ll meet the devil at the bottom of a wishing well

You know you better give him something

Give him something good

Like everybody else he’s misunderstood

Jane says it’s a long way out…

I’m gonna make it out

Cause I’m about her

Jane says, you’re as Holy as a ghost,

But who loves you the most, if you offer

I might let you carry me

Jane there’s nobody here but yourself

In the end it’s the wealth of your spirit

Now hurry up get on with it

I went left I got right at some big hotel

There was a devil at the bottom of the wishing well

He said you better give me something

Give me something good

Like everybody else I’m misunderstood

Jane says it’s a long way out

I’m gonna make it out

Cause I’m about

Jane says it’s a long way out

I’m gonna make it out

I took a guess and cut a portion out of my heart

He said that’s nowhere close enough but it’s a damn good start

I wrote the secret that I buried on the wishing well wall

He said I’ve seen one… it follows that I’ve seen them all

We spoke of human destination in a perfect world

Derived the nature of the universe (found it unfulfilled)

As I took him in my arms he screamed I’m not insane

I’m just looking for someone to understand my pain…

It’s a long way out…

I’m gonna make it out

There was a man back in ’95

Whose heart ran out of summers

But before he died, I asked him

Wait, what’s the sense in life

Come over me, Come over me

The batter swings and the summer flies

As I look into my angel’s eyes

A song plays on while the moon is high over me

Something comes over me

Cause we’re all we got on this bouncing ball

And I love you free
