Lyrics

Dry Bones

Written By: Marques Bovre

(a capella)Been talkin' up a storm with the dry bones in the valley of the sons of the dust. Where a drifter best throw no stones upon the ways of the wicked and the just. I said to the bones, "C'mon and walk it on home. You've been slain in vain. Been raised in the Trust. So the Livin' Breeze set all the dry bones free in the valley of the sons of the dust.
Them dry bones coulda been my bones. Them rattlin' bones coulda been my own.
Heard the Promised Land married with the Chosen Ones in a ceremony down by the sea. But there's a pile of bones beneath the blisterin' sun sayin' nothin' in life comes free. Heard it once said from the holocaust dead, "Better choose well your enemy. Because their sins are your own when it gets to the bone in a bloody ceremony by the sea."
Them poor bones coulda been your bones. Them beaten down bones coulda been your own.
Been singin' to the coliseum crowds with the lions singin' hungry harmony. And I close my eyes when it gets too loud, knowin' Daniel is keepin' me in key. It's like standin' all alone in a room fulla bones with the Livin' Breeze flowin' outa me. Then the crowd goes home and they take home their bones, with the lions singin' hungry harmony.
So if I'm makin' like an ass with the jawbones, it's 'cause I'm kickin' like a mule just to roll that stone.
Repeat 1st verse

Different Kind of Fool

Written By: Marques Bovre

The moon finds me in peculiar light. It's all because I am a lunar lunatic tonight. I'm a crazy man. Crazy 'bout my baby. She's a woman by God, she don't have to be no lady. And I've been in this place before enough to make me say, I'm a different kind of fool today.
Different kind of fool, just can't carry a facade of cool. Got me breaking every schoolhouse rule just to be a fool for you, baby.

Fifteen when the world was a little younger. Just a chubby Teddy Bear with a funny kinda hunger. Berries in the bushes, just-a-stumbling to snatch 'em. Had these thorns in my paws, never thought I'd catch 'em. I've been a fool for Love, I let it guide my every way. But I'm a different kinda fool today.
Different kind of fool, just can't carry a facade of cool. Got me breaking every schoolhouse rule just to be a fool for you, baby.

The breeze on your breast is just a lullaby sigh. I'm gonna listen down low, until the morning comes nigh. Lullaby sigh, just-a-rockin' and-a-rollin'. When time stands still, it was meant be stolen. I hear God whisper softly, as I'm kneeling down to pray, "Hey, you're a different Fool today."
Different kind of fool, just can't carry a facade of cool. Got me breaking every schoolhouse rule just to be a fool for you, baby.

If I'm lucky enough to be a gray-haired fool, I'll still measure all my days by your Golden Rule. Meet me there, I'll wear a pink carnation. Be the calendar girl in my service station. If the world is a little older, if it hasn't blown away, well we'll be different kinds of fool someday.
Different...
