Within Without

Words and music by Bill Price

Sitting Bull - Randolph Hearst
A love of possessions like a disease among men*
His castle full - his castle burst
No cure for his ills no peace and no end

The Mona Lisa - Disneyland
Flash above substance - a deal for the soul
Mother Teresa would understand
At the end of the ride what glitters ain't gold

And I'll go where the souls aren't sinking
I'll go where the spirits shout
I'll go and I know what you're thinking
But sometimes I wanna grow within, I gotta go without

Thomas Merton - Howard Stern
I can't hear myself think - can't hear the beat of my heart
I know for certain - I can turn
When the silence is golden there's a light in the dark

And I'll go where the souls aren't sinking
I'll go where the spirits shout
I'll go and I know what you're thinking
But sometimes I wanna grow within, I gotta go without

Footsteps hounding me - temptation stalks, surrounding me
And I see that needle's eye - growing small
While I'm - growing tall
How can I - try to haul my camel to the other side?

Mahatma Ghandi - Genghis Khan
The desire unleashed ravages all in its way
The weight's upon me - the wind is strong
The enemy of true freedom that I duel every day

And I'll go where the souls aren't sinking
I'll go where the spirits shout
I'll go and I know what you're thinking
But sometimes you wanna grow within, you gotta go without
