All I Know (The Year of Commitment) "Live" Version Recorded at Westbeth Theater and Millbrook, N.Y."
By Mark Mangold

I never knew what I was searchin' for 'til I found it all again - I never knew what was hauntin' me but I cast it out upon the wind - All the old religions that tell us of our sins - They are of no use to me now in this time we're livin' in - It's takin' me All I Know - takin' me All I Know - gotta keep on as far as I can go Takin' me All I know - We have decided this is the year of commitment {think about it} - Somehow we all know - We have decided that the ancient rules no longer have control - Saw the answer on a Cadillac license plate, said "Change" it's what's in store - Gonna take all you got to remember you are here to travel home - (Lyric in parenthesis not in "Live" version: How many times have you lived, my friend? You're so sage for 21 - Were you my brother or my sister, my father or my son - Father Stone can you tell me all the secrets that you know - All the way to the Northern Star is not so far to go, not so far to go - But it's taken me All I Know... - Save your mercy for the disbeliever as he's fallin' down to Earth - Drink your whiskey with the renegade as he motions you to quench his thirst - Hear the cries of the people as their structures fall apart - See the empty stares of the children as they bear the deepest scars...) So let the consciousness surround you and take you into the blinding Light - Let your intuition and vision be your sight - And don't let the changes get you crazy or make you go to war - Gonna take all you got to remember you are here to travel home - (It's not really what you're here for, not what you're here for) But it's gonna take you - All you know Take you All you know Gotta keep on as far as you can go - Gonna take you All you know - All you know All you know As far as you can go - Gonna take you All you know (To be continued)
