Track Name: Teacher Teacher
Teacher, teacher,
Wont you tell me what is true
This kinda rising is just too long overdue
Teacher, teacher,
How'd I let it get this way?

Cause there was someone trying to tell me I was wrong
Ive been singing bout these things for far too long
Burn me out, boy, Ive got much more left to say

I'm gonna be raising the roof
I'm gonna be painting the town
Im gonna be tearing those white flags down

Teacher, teacher
There is danger on the screen
Some little coven of the bigotry machine
Teacher, teacher
Howd they get to hold that sway?

Dont want to see them come to represent this age
The dumb, the dumber and the princes of the page
Theyve got the money
Now lets give em Hell to pay

Im gonna be raising the roof
Im gonna be painting the town
Im gonna be tearing those white flags down
Im gonna be crossing that line
Im gonna be biding my time
Im gonna be kissing those walls goodbye

Teacher, this is not a seasonal review
Every generation's got a little more to prove
Teacher, teacher
Help me open up that door

Im gonna be raising the roof
Im gonna be painting the town
Im gonna be tearing those white flags down
Im gonna be raising the roof
Im gonna be painting the town
Im gonna be tearing those white flags down
Those white flags down
Teacher, teacher
Track Name: Are You Ready?
Gather up the bones
Gather up the ashes
Gather every tear
From Joe Hill's lashes
Gather up the dead
Gather up the spirit
Gather up the song and the ones who need to hear it

We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
Are you ready?

Gather in the halls
Gather in the polling stations
There will be a call to gather every nation
Gather in Baghdad, New York, London
They won't see the flames until the fire is upon them

We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
Are you ready?

There's an army in the east
There's a country in confusion
And democracy is marching
Into the arms of evolution
So gather up your fight
Gather up your reason
There is cause for every hope and a hope for every season

We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
Are you ready?

We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
We will ride, are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Track Name: Icarus Wind
Its the Icarus wind
Blowing in my eyes
Its the Icarus wind
Telling me those lies
And its heart is like ice and its fingers are long
And it knows just who'll be torn apart by that windsong
Its the Icarus wind

Its the Icarus wind
Blowing through my head
Its the Icarus wind loosening the threads
And, my God, it will stop you right there
Dead in your tracks
If you're just held together with hope and candle-wax
Its the Icarus wind
Its the Icarus wind

And the higher it pulls me up
The hotter it gets
Its the end of the dreamer
Amid fire and cigarettes

Its the Icarus wind whispering in my ear
Its the Icarus wind dusting away those tears
Singing, baby the truth is that this wont hurt at all
Soon there'll just be feathers and the quiet of the fall
Its the Icarus wind
Its the Icarus wind
Its the Icarus wind
Track Name: The Parting Glass
Of all the money e'er I had
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er Ive done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be to you all

If I had money enough to spend
And leisure time to sit a while
I’d gladly walk those roads again
And trace the footsteps of a child
But I have not the time to ask
Why those will stand and those will fall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be to you all

Of, all the comrades e'er I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay
But since it fell into my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all
