  • 03:55 Lyrics Stay with Me

    Stay With Me

    Stay with me baby

    Stay with me now

    Stay with me baby

    A little longer

     

    Used to be so good at being alone

    Didn’t need anybody, thought I was strong

    You came along and the walls came tumbling down

    Never knew I could feel this way

     

    Stay with me baby

    Stay with me now

    Stay with me baby

    A little longer

    Right here by my side

     

    You do something special for me darling

    You make me see the good in the world all around

    Nobody else can make me laugh at myself

    I never knew love could be this easy

     

    Stay with me baby

    Stay with me now

    Stay with me baby

    A little longer

    Right here by my side

     

    I know that nothing can last forever

    But for just one moment let time stand still

    Lying here in the night with your loving arms around me

    Our hearts beat together, can’t always wait

     

    Stay with me baby

    Stay with me now

    Stay with me baby

    A little longer

    Right here by my side

    Shirtman had a vision

    Gonna make his culture last

    It stays the same

     

    Feathered Riders

    Keep the people safe

    As enemy approaches

    With their war machines

    Women’s hearts are up

    Kids staying brave

    Crazy Horse got answers

    In his dreams

     

    Keep on Fighting

    Clear the Way

    World keeps on spinning

    Skan, Taku Skan Skan

    It Stays the same

     

    Shy and quiet

    Invisible dance

    When lives are threatened

    Takes the big chance

    Following his vision

    Freedom needs a fight

    Life’s worth a good death

    He’s still right

     

    Keep on Fighting

    Clear the Way

    Crazy Horse Spirit

    Lives on today

     

  • 03:35 Lyrics For What It's Worth

    For What It’s Worth (Stephen Stills)

    There's something happening here

    What it is ain't exactly clear

    There's a man with a gun over there

    Telling me I got to beware

     

    I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

     

    There's battle lines being drawn

    Nobody's right if everybody's wrong

    Young people speaking their minds

    Getting so much resistance from behind

     

    It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

     

    What a field-day for the heat

    [Ten] thousand people in the street

    Singing songs and carrying signs

    Mostly say, hooray for our side

     

    It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

     

    Paranoia strikes deep

    Into your life it will creep

    It starts when you're always afraid

    You step out of line, [they] come and take you away

     

    We better stop, hey, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

    Stop, hey, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

    Stop, now, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

    Stop, children, what's that sound

    Everybody look what's going down

  • 02:45 Lyrics Itsnot

    IT’SNOT

    You take too long

    Unlike myself

    You talk too much

    To someone else

     

    You bide your time

    I’m done wasting mine

    You come at ten

    I’m gone at nine

     

    You creep around all the time

    Other stuff is on my mind

    Jealousy makes you try to bring me down

    (While you) Tell tales all over town

     

    This must be love! But it’snot

    This must be love! But it’snot

    This must be love! But it’s snot

     

    You’re not on my radar map

    It’s quite easy avoiding your trap

    You keep chasing; I won’t be caught

    You think it’s love, but it’snot.

     

    It Snot over

    Round and round and round we go

    It’snot over

    Round and round and round we go

    It’snot over

    Round and round and round we go

    It’snot over

    Round and round and round we go

  • 02:53 Lyrics Voids Can Be Filled

    Voids Can Be Filled

    I sing a song for all around

    Of times when life brings large minds down

    Of waiting til the waiting ceases

    To help sustain some psychic peace

    Four Saddest Clowns

    ‘Til all of time has been drowned

    Of all the good that’s never come

    From thoughts elusive dream

    You’re right, you’re wrong

    You win, you lose

    To me it’s all the same

     

    Four Saddest Clowns all around

    ‘Til all of time has been drowned

    Four Saddest Clowns all around

    Til all of time has been drowned

    Keep your mind wide open

    Keep yourself a’floatin’

    Voids can be filled in a day

    Keep you mind wide open

    Keep yourself a’floatin

    Voids can be filled in a day

    OooOooOoo Hooloo hooloo

     

    I sing a song for all about

    Of times the soul is filled with doubt

    When nothing seems to be quite right

    And darkness turns out the light

    Four Saddest Clowns

    ‘Til all of time has been drowned

     

    When hearts are healed and broke again

    Yet no one is to blame

    You’re up, you’re down

    You give, you take

    To me it’s all the same

     

    Four Saddest Clowns all around

    ‘Til all of time has been drowned

    Four Saddest Clowns all around

    ‘Til all of time has been drowned

     

    Keep your mind wide open

    Keep yourself a’floatin’

    Voids can be filled in a day

    Keep your mind wide open

    Keep yourself a’floatin’

    Voids can be filled in a day

    Voids can be filled in a day

    Voids can be filled in a day

    Voids can be filled in a day

  • 03:25 Lyrics You Can't Feel Love

    You Can’t Feel Love

    Listen!

    There’s something on the shelf

    Back when tears would bother me

    Reflections of myself

     

    Gentle words only

    From everybody else

    Simply just amazing

    To be held by no one else

     

    I keep feeling

    There’s a lack of something true

    Holding onto dreams

    In hopes of reaching you

     

    Is it really real?

    Or are we just fools?

    Open your heart

    That’s all you’ve got to do

     

    Nothing is too hard

    When you give up your heart

    Loneliness  kills a life

    Give Love another try

     

    Nothing is too hard

    When you give up your heart

     

    You can’t feel love

    You can’t feel love

    You can’t feel love (lost)

    You can’t feel love

    You can’t feel love

    You can’t feel love (lost)

    You can’t feel love

    You can’t feel love

    You can’t feel love (lost)

     

    Lost Love!

    Nothing is too hard

    When you give up your heart

    Loneliness kills a life

    Give love another try

     

    Lost! Lost! Lost! Gone

  • 02:43 Lyrics Shake Up

    Shake Up

    I’ve got something on my mind

    Think about it all the time

     

    You’ve got something on your mind

    See with eyes no longer blind

     

    We’ve got Freedom on our mind

    Undo the chains, chains that bind

     

    Everybody open your mind

    We gotta heed, heed the signs

     

    Revolution on our mind

    We’re not gonna tow the line

     

    Now I wanna clear your mind

    Relax, unwind, bump and grind

     

  • 04:56 Lyrics The Miracle

    The Miracle

    [Smalls: Waiting for a Miracle.]

    Queen tried to kill the Smalls

    Didn’t quite get them all

    Little Warriors grew Ruff  n Tuff

    They Huff n Stuff, they’ve had enough

    [Queen: You really think you can defeat me?]

     

    Smalls no longer bend

    Queen’s reign has got to end

    They take matters into their own hands

    Reclaim their land, take a stand, man to man

    (This evil bitch has got to go!)

     

    [Smalls:  Smalls March!]

    Little ones walk the trail

    Goodness must  prevail

    Use their might against the night

    First light starts a righteous fight, a righteous fight!

    [Queen: You wanna play with Fire?]

     

    They approach the stone wall

    Ferocious soldiers who give their all

    No one holds back, there’s no slack

    Fear’s all they lack, as they attack!

     

    Queen:  This is War!

    OEO’s (Battle)

    Queen: They’re coming to take me away HaHa

    They’re coming to take me away

    They’re coming to take me away Haha

    They’re coming to take me away

    They think they’ll kill me in the fray

    And I’m supposed to rot away

    But they’re not doing that today

    Haha hoho heehee!

     

    No surrender is the cry

    Ragged soldiers never die

    Stones walls tumble down, so long

    She’s done, evil’s gone, Sing a victory song!

  • 04:26 Lyrics Just Believe

    Just Believe

    Sitting here in my room of foam

    Wondering why I’m all alone

    Everyone here is insane

    Everyone here is the same

     

    Inside, I feel dead

    Living in my burned out head

     

    Cuckoo

     

    You all think we’re quite insane

    We will win your silly games

    Yes, we are insane

    Oh my, we are insane

     

    Inside, I don’t feel dead

    Living in my clearing head

     

    CrossOver

    All you’ve gotta do is believe

    CrossOver

    I ain’t gonna do you no harm

     

    Sitting in your normal world

    In my head things twist and twirl

    There are ways to ease the pain

    You don’t have to stay insane

     

    We know you’re not dead

    You’re cured, it’s what they said

     

    CrossOver

    Just believe in me now

    CrossOver

    I ain’t gonna do you no harm

     

NOTES
Blackberry Way Records is proud to announce the addition of THE LITTER to our roster with the new album: “FUTURE OF THE PAST” To be released September 2019.

EMERGE released on ABC’s Probe label, was awarded gold record status selling over 500,000 albums around the world. Along with DISTORTIONS, EMERGE has remained one of the most respected and collectible records from the psychedelic era. The Litter toured the nation playing shows with Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jethro Tull and Cream to name a few.
The appropriately titled “Future Of The Past” is an out of the box vision of where rock was and should be going. Original member Tom Murray enlisted the help of some talented and enthusiastic young players, as well as original Litter guitarist Zippy Caplan, Larry Wiegand of Crow and original guitarist of The Revolution, Dez Dickerson, to add their magic to the recording.
