Track Name: Mono Lake [Live]
Nothing to see here
but the alkaline flies
and the brine shrimp
under yellow skies
Mono Lake

Death like a desert
stretches away,
Rabbit bush and
the occasional sage

Mono Lake
I came to drown my sorrow
but it floated away

Oh regret, Bodie
I gotta pull away
from that ghost town
and the perpetual state
of arrested decay
Mono Lake

Up there in heaven
by the John Muir Trail
in the range of light
words fail

Seven miles to the gate
How you were shining
as you faded away

Mono Lake
I came to drown my sorrow
but it floated away

Track Name: Above The Law [Live]
eight weeks
too long
we cannot stand
above the law
blue sea
white sand
pink shrimp
we cannot stand
above the law

black crude
fossil tar
find the truth
dive far down
black crude
fossil tar
find the truth
on the shore

we cannot stand
above the law

Track Name: The Dig Tree [Live]
On the 16th of December
1860, Sunday
The two horses having being shod
Our reports finished, we started

We found the river
Bring the cup
Three days, no water
Drink up

Across cracked clay and stone
To the depot and the dig tree
The cockatoos, pigeons and crows
Starvation in the land of plenty

Across Australia
Burke, Wills and King
From the Never Never
Towards Cooper Creek

On the Bullah Bullah
The red gumblgari
Look again, look again—
I cannot, I cannot

Across cracked clay and stone
To the depot and the dig tree
The cockatoos, pigeons and crows
Starvation in the land of plenty

Track Name: Este Seu Ohlar [Live]
by Antonio Carlos Jobim

Este seu olhar
quando encontra o meu
Fala de umas coisas
Que eu não posso acreditar
Doce é sonhar, é pensar que você
Gosta de mim como eu de você

Mas a ilusão quando se desfaz
Dói no coração de quem sonhou
Sonhou demais,
Ah! se eu pudesse entender
O que dizem os seus olhos

Track Name: Con Diez Años De Menos [Live]
By Silvio Rodriguez

Esta mujer me propone que salte y me estrelle
contra un muro de piedra que alza en el cielo
y como combustible me llena de anhelos
de besos sin promesas y sentencias sin leyes

Esta mujer me propone un pacto que selle
la tierra con el viento, la luz con la sombra
invoca los misterios del tiempo y me nombra
esta mujer propone que salte y me estrelle

Solo para verle
solo para amarle
solo para serle
solo y no olvidarle

Con diez años de menos no habría esperado
por tus proposiciones yo hubiera corrido
como una fiera al lecho en que nos conocimos
impúdico y sangriento, divino y alado

Con diez años de menos habría blasfemado
con savia de su cuerpo quemaría los templos
para que los cobardes tomaran ejemplo
con diez años de menos hubiera matado

Solo para verle
solo para amarle
solo para serle
solo y no olvidarle
