I made myself an institution From all the books I read How to start a revolution From the bottom of a garden shed See I've been thinking I could play your game I'll maybe colour my hair I've been thinking I should change my name I'll be your puppet, I sing because I love it Before we propel toward this rush For me to seal and sign I think I should tell you I reserve the right to change my mind See I've been thinking about the rules again And I do not think it's fair So tie me down and take my name I'll rise above it, I sing because I love it If I could be Fidel Castro I would thank my lucky star I'd have a mojito and light my Cohiba cigar. I'd be thinking 'bout the USA Maybe Guantanamo Bay Hey now FBI and CIA Get the president on speed dial Here's my Cuban missile. Tie me down but I won't give in Tie me down but I won't give in

My my what a beautiful dress My my what a beautiful world I think I’m gonna lose myself In this race to be with you My my what a beautiful face I think about it every second every day Looks like I’m gonna lose the very thing That got me close to you It’s a beautiful world And it’s a beautiful light that you shine It’s a beautiful world And it’s a beautiful day outside Oh so why, why did I see nothing wrong All along Oh so why, why did I see nothing wrong All along My my what a beautiful dress Predictably you see I’m overly impressed What’s it gonna take to be the one To lay down next to you What’s it gonna take to be the one To lay down next to you What’s it gonna take to be the one To lay down next to you It’s a beautiful light that you shine It’s a beautiful world And it’s a beautiful day outside Oh so why, why did I see nothing wrong All along Oh so why, why did I see nothing wrong All along My my what a beautiful dress My my what a beautiful world What’s it gonna take to be the one To lay down next to you What’s it gonna take to be the one To lay down next to you It’s a beautiful day outside Oh so why, why did I see nothing wrong All along Oh so why, why did I see nothing wrong All along My my what a beautiful dress My my what a beautiful world.

Resistance 03:07
Yes I know I should not do this I wonder why my heartʼs so foolish Itʼs my weakness for temptation Thatʼs led me to this situation If thereʼs a reason for refusing Itʼs just not one Iʼm good at choosing I know suspicion around me is growing Thereʼs only one way this is going to end Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance From you Let me go, you know I need to Yes I know you see through My intention unfit to mention Itʼs late, itʼs late, itʼs late And I really should be on my way To higher ground Be safe and sound away, away, away, away Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance From you From you, from you I try to walk away, I walk away from you I try to look away, I walk away from you From you, from you, from you, from you Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance Ooh ooh Get out my head You know Iʼve no resistance I’ve no resistance I’ve no resistance from you I’ve no resistance From you, from you, from you, from you.

A million miles away The voices raise tonight As soldiers sign their names A National Valentine See we’re gonna catch you We know what’s on your mind We’re gonna find you Don’t try to run and hide Ooh, where’s the sunshine Ooh, let the sunshine through It’s hard to disappear And keep the world outside Your isolation brings New worries for your rights I’d love to help you Protect you from the storm Although I don’t even know you I’d like you to know the way it was before Ooh, where’s the sunshine Ooh, let the sunshine through It’s all I could do I don’t know, I don’t know any more The troops are arriving Lock up yourself and yours The general’s retiring He wants to get home In time to watch the news In time before this fight becomes a war Let the sun shine through Ooh, let the sun come shining through Is there something so wrong with me Is there something so wrong with me Is there something so wrong.

Hollywood 03:37
This life gets harder day by day It seems like everyone wants more I try to compensate in other ways I try but I just can't ignore But the rent is due I see tears in her eyes It's not Hollywood Just the best we could find These expectations crypt all nights It tries to steal my joi de vivre All this pressure building day and night Sometimes I wish that I could leave But the rent is due I see tears in her eyes It's not Hollywood Just the best we could find And there's bills to pay Come now baby, don't cry It's not Hollywood Just the best we could find Tell me you understand Tell me we'll be alright Tell me we've got a plan It's hard to keep going on It's hard to keep being strong When this is not the way it's meant to be This is not where I had hoped to be On my knees, I'm on my knees On my knees, I'm on my knees But the rent is due (On my knees, I'm) I see tears in her eyes (On my knees, I'm) It's not Hollywood (On my knees, I'm) Just the best we could find (On my knees, I'm) And No Second Take (On my knees, I'm) No way to rewind It's not Hollywood Just the best we could find It's not Hollywood Just the best we could find.

Allies 03:59
Why you feel the need to be so strong Why you afraid of something going wrong It’s okay, there’s still tomorrow It’s okay, we’ll beg, steal or borrow Why you need to do it all by yourself When right beside you there’s a hand that could help It’s okay to lean upon me It’s okay, we’re dreaming the same dream Ooh, nothing’s gonna separate us Ooh, woah Ooh, there’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know It’s all behind you let go Everybody’s had a broken heart It’s just nature’s way of saying who your friends are Its okay, we see with the same eyes It’s okay to say that we’re now allies Ooh, nothing’s gonna separate us Ooh, woah Ooh, there’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know It’s all behind you let go Everybody’s had a broken heart Everybody’s had a broken heart We fall, we rise, we try a thousand times What else can we do We’ll fall, we’ll rise, we’ll be preoccupied We’ll reset, we’ll forget, we’ll find there’s something new Nothing’s gonna separate us Ooh, woah Ooh, there’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know It’s all behind you it’s over Let go now it’s over Yeah it’s over There’s nothing I could say that you don’t already know We reap what we sow When some die then some grow You’ll see it’s all behind you let go.

Yes I know I could, do myself a world of good With a compromise that I don’t understand Declare I see the clothes, tell the emperor he glows But I wont and so it’s out of my hands Woah, at times like these it’d be easy Woah, to sit back, relax and let it be Woah, at times like these it’d be easy To let you win, but that’s not within me You say that joy exists, and I hear that ignorance is bliss Yeh they say that it’s a magical place But hard as I may try, two plus two just wont make five So the only way to win is not to play Woah, at times like these it’d be easy Woah, to sit back, relax and let it be Woah, at times like these it’d be easy To let you win, but that’s not within me Ohh Ohh If I’m uptight It’s just the symptom of a constant fight Ooh this life, this life Ooh your lies, your lies Ooh this life, this life Woah, at times like these I won’t let you win I can’t let you win I won’t let you win I can’t let you win I won’t let you win I can’t let you win Though at times like these it’d be easy.

Don't Think 03:30
The proof is on the skin A lifetime of bruises I’m tired of giving in So no more excuses Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think that everything’s okay Don’t think I won’t start again The paleness of the skin It tells me it’s time to Let the sunshine in It tells me it’s time to go Get out of this hole Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think that everything’s okay Don’t think I won’t start again I did it once and I can do it again The heart’s a volunteer Sometimes it’s lost, sometimes it steers The heart can learn to change So don’t think I won’t start again Don’t think I, don’t think I, don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think I, don’t think I, don’t think I won’t start again Don’t think I won’t, don’t think I won’t Don’t think I won’t walk away Don’t think I won’t, don’t think I won’t Don’t think I won’t start again Don’t think I will, don’t think I won’t Don’t think you know me cause I can see that you don’t Don’t think I’ll stay, oh no The proof is on the skin.

NY City Cell 04:20
New York, I came to see the lights Of New York, but I got hypnotised I’m caught in the glare now For me there’s nowhere but New York I’m all talk, I said I’ll walk away From New York, but I’m still here today My mistake was forgetting The Titanic was heading to New York How did it end up this way I never dreamt that I would stay I never thought I’d be caught in New York, I lost my liberty In New York I found that love found me I’m caught in this trap Now I see no way back from New York How did it end up this way I never dreamt that I would stay I never thought I’d be caught in New York I never thought I’d be caught in New York, I fell in love with you New York, I heard all my dreams could come true But I’m still waiting Woah, I’m still waiting, New York New York, I ain’t got time to stop It’s New York the town where John got shot I knew from the start I should not drop my guard in New York How did it end up this way I never dreamt that I would stay I never thought I’d be caught in New York I never thought I’d be caught in New York, I fell in love with you New York, I heard all my dreams would come true But I’m still waiting Woah, I’m still waiting, New York The sweat, the schemes, the tears, the dreams The truth, the lies, the ground, the skies The weak, the strong, the nights go on On and on and on and on and on How did it end up this way I never dreamt that I would stay I never thought I’d be caught in New York I never thought I’d be caught in New York I never thought I’d be caught in New York.
