Contents: If you can't give a man a dream --
When you're goin' through hell --
Show me a hero --
For a heavenly cause --
You don't always get what you want --
To bend but not to break --
Start from where you are --
The meek shall inherit --
Meanwhile, back at the ranch --
Earthquake --
If you ain't where you are --
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest --
The love of a brother.
