Martin Stephenson…‘Working with GOJO’ MUSIC seemed so easy because primarily, they all love what they are doing, know what they are doing and totally respect / love each other…it was a brotherhood – but make no mistake this is an enlightened band of brothers and that is why I served.

Thank you for the Brotherhood, Love, Light & Truth.’

Martin Stephenson.

Track Name: Tell Me Please, Is This How The West Was Won?
Tell Me Please, Is This How The West Was Won?
(Tribute to Abdul Haq)

Abdul Haq was a freedom fighter – through the Russian campaign,
Hailed by the west as a kinda’ - Mujahadeen John Wayne.

Need’s support for his uprising – to rid Afghanistan,
Of oppression hate & war – known as the Taliban
Tell me please, is this how the west was won?
Tell me please, is this how the west was won?

See the CIA can’t see no further than their nose,
The Bush fire it burns outa’ control,
The dollar Bill (Clinton) had fed the fire,
And the flames of madness just got higher and higher,
It’s just another example of something going on in my name – but not with my blessing,
It’s just another example of something going on in my name – but not with my blessing.

Tell me please, is this how the west was won?
Tell me please, is this how the west was won?

GUITAR

Abdul fought for freedom – not to wear a collar.
Off the Stars & Stripes bought with Uncle Sam’s dollar,
The Bush fires raging - GI Joe grabs his gun,
His message blurred (Blaired) and the deed was done,
It’s just another example of something going on in my name – but not with my blessing,
It’s just another example of something going on in my name – but not with my blessing.


Abdul fought for - JUSTICE & RIGHTS
For his war torn – PEOPLE IN FLIGHT
CIA AIN’T GOT NO HONOUR,
BUYING THEIR DEMANDS WITH UNCLE SAM’S DOLLAR
(repeat all X 2)

(ad lib)
(Dollar Bill) – You’re making me ill, with your dollar bill – yeh you’re making me ill,
We’re getting blurred (Blaired) baloney, from the mouth of Tony – yeh, getting blurred baloney, from the mouth of Tony yeh,

It’s just another example of something going on in my name, but not with my blessing
It’s just another example of something going on in my name, but not with my blessing,
So stop your messing – you ain’t got my blessing,
Stop your messing – you ain’t got my blessing

Tell me please, is this how the west was won?
Tell me please, is this how the west was won?
(ad lib to end)

Track Name: Distant Friend
Distant Friend.

A distant friend of mine said he’d seen you on the train,
Your coming back for more and more, he said you’d smiled but looked away,

I don’t believe in love or the hold it’s got on me,
I don’t believe in what you say now,
And now we both break down and cry.

Both break down now, both break down and cry,
Both break down now, both break down and –

Well I try to take it in my stride, look all casual and cool,
But you hit me like a left hook girl, I need my corner and my stool, well what a fool – what a fool.

I don’t believe in love and the hold it’s got on me,
And I don’t believe in what you say now,
But we both break down and –

Cry for help and happiness and the things that we got wrong,
You cry out ‘it’s my fault’ and you slam the door,
Well I thought you needed help girl oh and then you helped yourself to me,
Well you chewed me up and spit me out and I stumbled to the floor,
And now we both break down and cry.

Both break down now, both break down and cry,
Both break down now, both break down and cry –

Yeah we cry

(Guitar)

I love the way you walk and the way you talk, I love the way you laugh and the way you cry now,
The way you walk and the way you talk, I love the way you laugh and the way you cry now
The way you walk and the way you talk, I love the way you laugh and the way you cry now,
The way you walk and the way you talk, I love the way you laugh and the way you cry now.

Track Name: (Get Me On A Bus To) Betterville
(Get Me On A Bus To) Betterville

They say you never miss – what you’ve never had,
If ya’ belly full – and ya’ feelin’ glad,
Well love and pain – they hurt the same,
And I’ve had my fill of being sad…

(Chorus)
Well – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville,
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville…
Cos’ I’m feelin’ ill – I can’t sit still…gonna’ be much better – in Betterville

Well your depression – becomes obsession,
And there’s no messing – when you’re upsetting,
Come Find Yourself – be a Natural Mystic,
A Harry Smith – or a Hallelujah!

(Chorus)
Well – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville,
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville,
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville…
Cos’ I’m feelin’ ill – I can’t sit still…gonna’ be much better – in Betterville

(Slide Guitar)

You’re intellectually perfect – chemically secure,
Ambitiously unflinching – stylistically so pure,
You’re as strong willed as an outlaw – and devoted as a Nun,
Well Sergio Leone – won’t you load me up a gun and…

(Chorus)
Well – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville,
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville,
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville
Yeh – get me on a bus – get me on a bus to Betterville…
Cos’ I’m feelin’ ill – I can’t sit still…gonna’ be much better – in Betterville

I’ve had my fill of the combat zone - wrap me up and send me home,
I’ve had my fill of the combat zone - wrap me up and send me home,
I’ve had my fill of the combat zone - wrap me up and send me home,
I’ve had my fill of the combat zone - wrap me up and send me home,

Get me on a bus – get me on a bus to…
Get me on a bus – get me on a bus to…
Get me on a bus – get me on a bus to…
Get me on a bus – get me on a bus to…Betterville…(I’m feeling ill).

Track Name: Time Out
TIME OUT

Need to do some fixing up, when I can find the time,
Been doing nothing for a while,
No occupation – I just drift around the day,
The morning sun is a good friend of mine,
I’m collecting lazy days,
I store them in a pile,
My collections building up now,
It’s been my source of pride,
Now I’m taking – Time Out – easy listening now, now,
‘‘Sweet Heart of The Rodeo’’ is mighty pleasing,
Just taking – Time Out, (repeat)

I kinda’ like the easy life, I guess it suits my style,
Times my own to do with what I like,
Hanging with a crowd can sometimes make you yearn for space,
Space to spend some time,
I’m collecting lazy days,
I store them in a pile,
My collections building up now,
It’s been my source of pride,
Now I’m taking - Time Out – easy listening now, now,
‘‘Sweet Heart of The Rodeo’’ is mighty pleasing,
Taking – Time Out (repeat by 4)

(Up beat tempo)

Well I’m lazy bones sleeping in the sun,
Tell me how – tell me how are you,
Gonna’ get your days work done,
Time Out – take your time,
I’m collecting lazy days,
I store them in a pile,
My collections building up now,
It’s been my source of pride,
Well I’m taking - Time Out – easy listening now, now,
‘‘Sweet Heart of The Rodeo’’ is mighty pleasing,
Taking – Time Out (repeat by 4)

Well I’m lazy bones sleeping in the sun, tell me how, tell me how are you,
Gonna’ get your days work done.
