SIGN OF LIFE by Eddie Shiffler God doubted my existence, And I began to disappear As my heart began to slow, oh no My flesh was turning clear And the world began to crumble Everything was going wrong So I shined a sign of life With the passion of my song I shined a sign of life I shined a sign of life Now, listen: When you're deep in dark despair No one else but you is there Do you fear you've lost your melody? No! Can't tell the day from night Gotta change the dark to light With a little music alchemy There ain't a gun that can shoot this down No force of nature can turn me round, No, you can't stop what I was born to do, no Ain't no government to tell me I'm wrong Ain't another man that can write my song, girl Cause to mine own self be true, and you know it's true, cause I shined a sign of life I shined a sign of life Know me, know me, know me now! Cause I shined a little sign of life Straight to the heavens now, I Shine a sign of life Oh yeah, hear me shining now! I shine a sign, Lord, I shine a sign Don't you know I shine a sign Of life Life Life Oh yeah Life Alright! Shine that shine Won't you shine a little sign Won't you shine that sign Of Life.
RATTLING CHAINS by Eddie Shiffler I hurt my brain I lost my mind Somewhere on this train On an underground line I cursed my brothers With malice and scorn I killed my mother The night I was born Abandoned my lovers Forsaken my friends Spent all the money I refused to lend Scorched all the Earth Stole all the land Had millions of babies Who all were unplanned There ain't no coming back from this And there ain't nobody I miss I got Rattling Chains No one can know All the miles that I walked Hell that I sowed With the shit that I talked No one can know All the slaves that were sold Trying to turn iron chains Into wings of gold My head is on fire My body's a ghost My soul is for hire To the one who pays most Born in the blood Of alchemical sin I always lose Before I begin There ain't no coming back from this And there ain't nobody I miss I got Rattling Chains Rattling Chains The Circle by Eddie Shiffler ... and when the flowers die, The seeds are buried in the ground And in the spring time New fields of life will abound Do it, do it, do it for love, yeah And when the leaves are rolling The tree is still surely growing And when the chilling winds are blowing The sign of life is surely still showing And so the day Shall never fear the night Because the darkness will recede, yeah From even the smallest light My baby, You know I do it for love The seeds will fall into the mud, yeah The baby's birth is bathed in blood, yeah In war a nation will be born, now In love your soul is truly torn, now And so, the mystery Is now plain to see Rebirth is the key To immortality ... and so, now you know Your time will come to face the ground You'll ride the circle Back to the other side of town.
