Lyrics
01. As Old As I

higher yet my love, the water is rising 

up on the counter my love, grab a hold tightly — 

don’t you let go my dear, I can’t let you die 

Til your old as I, as old as I, old as I 


look both ways my dear, don’t trip on your laces

But here you lie shot in your sleep by a bullet gone stray 

you gave me your blessing, to keep you alive til ur 

old as I, as old as I, as old as I …  

  

I’ll take all your baggage, and I’ll give you mine,

For the passage of the time, for the distance as old as i, as old as I … as old as I 

02. The Legend of Connie Hawkins

Down on the courts in Bed Stuy

A legend rose from the streets

Just a poor kid with no use for what the others called gravity 


People came from all around to see young connie Hawkins do his thing

When the hawk went up against the best at Rucker park

oh how the choir would sing   


High flying kid do you know what you just did 


Is It just a dream love, is it just a dream love, steady you go

Hey pa I think I’m gonna make it, I’m going away on a one way ticket 

Is it just a dream love, is it just a dream love, steady you go 

round here those are always sinking, folks will say connie what were you thinking 


He lead the team in Highschool he never once got beat two years in a row

Got a scholarship to Iowa and knew that he had to go

he sent a letter home, to his papa, said papa I’m going to the nba 

But then out of nowhere his name got dropped into a scandal, always someone got to pay 


I got to got to got to get going now pop, there’s a detective here from the DA 

He’s telling me they’ll lock me away, if I don’t say what he wants me to saaaaaaaay 


So to all the kids on the back home lots, I swear it isn’t like they say 

the investigators pushed me around, and then I was black balled by the nba 


That playground legend, who could dunk when he was eleven, with super natural abilities, long before MJ before the Doctor. 

His Dreams were stolen, stomped on and thrown in, never got his day in the sun 

And now here lies High Flying Hawkins the greatest player that never was


So to all the kids on the back home lots, I swear it isn’t like they say 

the investigators pushed me around, and I was black balled by the nba 

His Dreams were stolen, stomped on and thrown in, never got his day in the sun 

And now here lies High Flying Hawkins the greatest player there ever was

03. Silent Type

Rode our horses in the pelting rain over the graves of the last war

Rooster was on a tare about something he’d seen the night before

Then he went quiet, when his horse stopped still in the night

I guess every now and then he the silent type 


From a ramshackle shotgun house we heard a woman just a screaming a name 

said why’d they take him lord, he hasn’t done a thing

But in that moment seemed god slipped out of sight

I guess every now and then he the silent type 

I guess every now and then he the silent type 


Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall


Further up the trail we came to ghastly sight

a man hanging from an old oak tree, for looking someone in the eye 

I asked the governor but he ducked back from the light 

I guess every now and then he the silent type 

I guess every now and then he the silent type 


Another storm is coming, we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

Another storm is coming, 

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall


we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall

we gotta take a stand, so we don’t fall
