Lyrics

Benjamin

Written By: Rick Cabral

I, Benjamin, all my life to this day
I, Benjamin, swear on mother’s grave
I am innocent of the crime against me charged
How can I confess when the killer is still at large?

I, Benjamin, come through the back door of fame
Now I conspire to shed this coat of shame
So I circle in my cage like an angry lion
Enslaved because my soul shouts with roarin’ fire

CHORUS 1
If tonight should be my last to live
Hope I find the strength in my soul to forgive
Those who wander through a dark land
Cannot see the inner peace in Benjamin

I, Benjamin, of sound spirit and mind
I been watchin’ the sands of time
Slip through the hourglass, crying out for truth
Like rolling thunder of impending doom

CHORUS

Instrumental break
CHORUS

I, Benjamin, all night to day
I been zoomin’ toward the pearly gates
Now I am hovering over earth and sky
Trying to make my way across the Great Divide

CHORUS 2
For tonight has been my last to live
I have found the strength in my soul to forgive
Those who would use the Jah Jah might
To try and free the inner light in me

Deep Sea Blues

Written By: Rick Cabral

Oh, Lordy, I'm commiseratin' with a hunchback moon over the Golden Gate
I feel like quietly slippin' on over the side
No one's gonna solve this here mystery way out here on a moonlit sea
I'm gonna lose myself come the morning tide
'Cause way down, down on the ocean floor I'm gonna wake up at a brand new door
It's a place they call Neptune's Pair-O-Dice
Where the fish police is standin' guard, hopin' the krill don't crash this bar
'Because the whales drop in, and you know that can be a crime

DEEP SEA BLUES, DEEP SEA BLUES
Hook, line and sinker, I done fell for you

Ol' Benny the Bluefin's blowin' on the clarinet, while Marlin Brando's on the bottom end
While Patty Perch will croon until you cry
Got an octopus slingin' cards to Danny Dolphin and Razor the Shark
While Crusty the Crab is blowin' on a pair of dice

DEEP SEA BLUES, DEEP SEA BLUES
Hook, line and sinker, I done fell for you

Davey Jones rattled some bones
When he opened his locker in the back
Passin' out bottles of rye to me and you
But until he came along, we was just singin' this sad ol' song
But everybody likes the DEEP SEA BLUES

Oh, Lordy, I'm exhilaratin' with the silvery moon under the Golden Gate
I floated on up to the surface to see the mornin' light
Now I got me a brand new philosophy that say "Go with the flow," and "Blow with the breeze"
And hold me a table for two at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice

DEEP SEA BLUES, DEEP SEA BLUES
Since you pulled up anchor and sailed out of view
I said "That's alright, that's alright bye and bye
Just hold me a table for two at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice (2x)
I said make that a table with a view at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice
