Remco Kruisselbrink Rough and raw (like 'Nyah Fearties'), an unique sound, a superb voice; simply GREAT!!! I love to see him live to sing along (hoping he'll sing loud enough so nobody can hear me sing...)

Track Name: Stranger Things
i'm the stranger you meet when i come through your town
you speak of love but don't want me around
i asked you for bread, you gave me a stone
and left me to wander this world all alone

i'm the child who's drowning in a sea of despair
seeking a kind word, a mouthful of air
averting your eyes as you passed on by
you hardened your heart and you left me to die

i'm the man who's been fleeing the wrath that's to come
lonely and tired, i need someone
i looked to my friends and found there were none
goodbye o world, my time here is done

i'm the one you don't see when you come through your town
you talk about me when i'm not around
the king of creation, the pure spotless lamb
but nobody, nobody knows who i am
Track Name: Richer Than Me
my servant is my own two hands
my riding beast is my two feet
my bed is the earth, my pillow's a rock
my warmth in the winter is the east of the earth

i sleep...
and there's nothing that i own
i wake...
and there's nothing that i own
but there is no one
on the face of this earth
richer than me
richer than me

the walls around me are the winds
the roof above me is the sky
my companions are trees, my friends are the squirrels
the songs that i listen to are the songs of birds

i sleep...
and there's nothing that i own
i wake...
and there's nothing that i own
but there is no one
on the face of this earth
richer than me
richer than me

the light by which i see the moon
my compass needle is the stars
your strength is my shield, your hope is my guard
i find my shelter in the breadth of your love

i sleep...
and there's nothing that i own
i wake...
and there's nothing that i own
but there is no one
on the face of this earth
richer than me
richer than me
richer than me
Track Name: Willow Jane
willow she was walking, walking into town
willow she was looking for some fancy gown
she didn't know exactly who she'd run into that day
but everyone who saw her, they would stop and say

willow jane
willow jane
baby, why're you walking in the rain?
willow jane
willow jane
tell me where you're going in that february rain?

willow she was looking for a place to lay her head
willow she was looking for blankets for her bed
and when she finally found the things she'd been looking for
willow kept on walking cause she wanted even more

willow jane
willow jane
baby, why're you walking in the rain?
willow jane
willow jane
tell me where you're going in that february rain?

willow she was looking for a family and a home
she didn't know that it was why she walked the streets alone
but on the day i met her, i asked her in to stay
willow has been with me until this very day

willow jane
willow jane
baby, why're you walking in the rain?
willow jane
willow jane
tell me where you're going in that february rain?
tell me where you're going in that february rain?
tell me where you're going in that february rain?
Track Name: Miranda
you have the right to remain silent
anything you say can and will be used against you
in a court of law

you have the right to have an attorney present when you're questioned
if you lack the money, one will be provided
do you understand these things as i've explained them to you?
are you ready to talk to me now... ?

you have the right to say what you want
or leave it to someone else
no one's allowed to ask you to incriminate yourself

if the police or magistrates wish to accuse you of a crime
unless they formally charge you they can't hold you for any time
you have a right to a trial before a jury made of women and men
and if they find you not guilty, you cannot be tried again

you have the right to seek happiness of your own volition
without having to worry what anybody thinks of your decisions

you have the right to sift for yourself the difference between truth and lies
you have the right to acceptance without wearing a disguise
and if anybody should desire something that you possess
that right can only be given by you...

Track Name: I Lose Control
i don't ever want to fall in love
to give my heart to someone else
i don't ever want to fall in love
never again will i lose myself but you

washed away all my hesitation you
destroyed all my reservations
i start to lose control when you're around

i said i'll never lose control
i'll never be swept away
i said i'll never lose control
that's what i thought until the day i met you

washed away all my hesitation you
destroyed all my reservations
i start to lose control when you're around

i start to lose control
i start to lose control

i said i'd rather be alone
and guard what others value most
i said i'd rather be alone
and sit surrounded by maybe's ghost but you

washed away all my hesitation you
destroyed all my reservations
i start to lose control when you're around
i start to lose control when you're around
i start to lose control when you're around
Track Name: The Lepers and My Lord
the blind man came into our midst in search of something more
the echoes of the music, they drew him through the door
he stumbled to your gathering for respite from the pain
he was after kindness, you covered him with shame

but i don't want no preacher's robe
i want the crown of thorns
i'd rather bind up all the wounds of those whose skin is torn
and i don't want to sit the throne
i'll never wear the sword
i'll be here in the gutter with the lepers and my lord
i'll be here in the gutter with the lepers and my lord

you wouldn't even talk to him or sit there by his side
the narrow trail was calling, instead you choose to hide
you wouldn't hold his arm for him when he was bound to fall
as far as you all were convinced, he wasn't there at all

but i don't want no preacher's robe
i want the crown of thorns
i'd rather bind up all the wounds of those whose skin is torn
and i don't want to sit the throne
i'll never wear the sword
i'll be here in the gutter with the lepers and my lord
i'll be here in the gutter with the lepers and my lord

the blind man left your gathering all angry and alone
a lack of hospitality that cannot be condoned
you didn't know the nature of the one you pushed away
the man that you neglected, you'll see him judgment day

but i don't want no preacher's robe
i want the crown of thorns
i'd rather bind up all the wounds of those whose skin is torn
and i don't want to sit the throne
i'll never wear the sword
i'll be here in the gutter with the lepers and my lord
i'll be here in the gutter with the lepers and my lord
