Damocles 04:00
See the sword hang over my head Tied my fate to the weight of this thread How in God’s name could we let These rivers run so red today Damocles I see what you’ve seen The price to pay for daring to dream Accusations everywhere I wont play electric chairs today I need a friend, somebody I can run to I need a friend just like you I need a friend, somebody I can talk to I need a friend like you There’s a king living in everyone Gather round bring your gifts or your guns See the battle up ahead We can die or fight instead today I need a friend, somebody I can run to I need a friend just like you I need a friend, somebody I can talk to I need a friend like you Everybody needs something Everybody got needs Everybody needs someone Everybody got needs I need a friend, somebody I can run to I need a friend just like you I need a friend, somebody I can talk to I need a friend like you

No Walls 03:53
When I was twelve I thought I’d be King of the world by twenty three Aye aye But then one day I closed my eyes And found a world that lives inside Now I… I feel free I’m in a maze, you’d be amazed How deep it’s getting day by day Aye aye It never stops it never ends But it’s Okay cause I’ve got friends That’s why.. I feel free, no walls around me I feel, I feel, I feel free No walls around me No rules to break or bend I hope tonight don’t end I hope tonight don’t end Peculiarly I found a theme That’s ringing out inside my dreams Aye aye Its like the echo of a song Sung before the world ‘got born’ Now I.. It’s hypnotised me Lit the lights inside me Now I don't recognise me. Aye, aye, aye.. I feel free, no walls around me I feel, I feel, I feel free No walls around me No rules to break or bend I hope tonight don’t end I hope tonight don’t end

Praying hands, open hearts, yeah Reaching out the stars Will we stand or fall apart Beneath our skin full of scars We’re all the same Two sides of one game It’s like musical chairs One world to share Another time and maybe I’d Find myself in your shoes The subtleties of geography Decides who wins or if you lose We’re all the same Two sides one game It’s like musical chairs One world to share Now I stare around and wonder Who made all these walls How did we end up out here When outside is no side at all. We’re all the same Two sides one game It’s like musical chairs One world to share

Mailer 02:35
I found a book that made me look at things upside down So naturally I wanted her to comprehend She didn't see what I could see and so 'we' aren't 'we' It's never gonna be the same again It's never gonna be the same again, woa-oh Just like a bruise the words he used they coloured my skin Was like the boldest boxer punching through a pen They dropped my jaw, I hit the floor and knew within It's never gonna be the same again Woa-oh, sometimes I still find I believe Woa-oh, sometimes I feel magic around me The constellations record the conversations of time And I was born upon the day November 10 November 10, the day you went and chose to die It's never gonna be the same again

You made the bed So go ahead enjoy it See what we had There's no way to avoid it You destroyed it I'm on the road I'm on a new direction See us 'is old' I'm on a new direction I want perfection So long, so long, I'm the disappeared So long, so long, I'm the disappeared Your light was bright And now your want to share it It's too late to try There's no way to repair it Forget it You made your bed When you said your want your freedom So go ahead Find someone else to lean on Dream on So long, so long, I'm the disappeared So long, so long, I'm the disappeared So Long, So Long, So Long, So Long So long, so long, I'm the disappeared So long, so long, I'm the disappeared

Hurricane 03:26
Everyday spins like a hurricane Gotta get myself out this room Why must I keep on remembering Each moment spent with you This love I feel inside me This love with no place to go This love that fate now denies me This love leading me home I know there’s a road for me Someplace I’ve yet to find Somewhere there is hope for me Could it be by your side Everything’s sinking inside of me Trying to find peace in the shade Time it now looks like my enemy With each decision I make I know there’s a road for me Someplace I’ve yet to find Somewhere there is hope for me Could it be by your side

Satellite 03:15
In the middle of something A million miles from the ground Funny how a picture changes When you see it from the other way around You lock yourself away To keep control There an opportunity to be free So are you gonna let go? Are you ready to fly like a satellite Are you ready to fall in love again Light up the sky like a starry night Are you ready to be more than a friend Are you ready to fall in love again No one can tell you What's right or wrong If there's a rhythm that gets you moving Get up cos that's now your song Life, oh life made of memories So take my hand and we can tear this to pieces Are you ready to fly like a satellite Are you ready to fall in love again Light up the sky like a starry night Are you ready to be more than a friend Are you ready to fall in love again Life, oh life made of memories Take my hand and sail the seas Life, oh life with no guarantees Yes it's whatever you choose to make it Now when I look at us There's something building up And I don't wanna stop We should be taking off Are you ready to fly like a satellite Are you ready to fall in love again Light up the sky like a starry night Are you ready to be more than a friend Are you ready to fall in love again

I'm moving away from you I've been making the change that I needed to I've broken a chain that I knew I should And now with my hands, and my heart untied It feels so good Everyday feels like a holiday Everyday I'm moving further and further away Everyday feels like a holiday Everyday I get a little further from you I get a little further I get a little further each day away I've been healing these wounds inside It ain't never to soon to do what's right So I'll fly my rocket ship to the stars Don't look down, that's just where we've been And not where we are Everyday feels like a holiday Everyday I'm moving further and further away Everyday feels like a holiday Everyday I get a little further from you I get a little further I move a little further away from you Everyday feels like a holiday Everyday I'm moving further and further away Everyday feels like a holiday Everyday I get a little further away from you

Escape 03:35
It’s ok, sometimes you’ve got to walk away To start something new You & I, let’s fly away beyond the superstitious skies And leave this dying town behind The rumours, the gossips, the secrets, the closets, goodbye Woah, just you and I And nothing to hide Woah, just you and I It’s ok, I see no reason here to stay And watch it go down We need to escape to break beyond these repetitious lies Let’s leave this poisoned place behind The prayer books, the fingers, the pointing, the whispers, goodbye Woah, just you and I And nothing to hide Woah, just you and I No secret encounters No critics, no doubters No saviours or prophets to please No ancient tradition protecting positions of authority I won’t spend my life on my knees Woah, just you and me Come on see it’s alright Lovers be lovers tonight Come on see it’s alright It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright It’s alright Woah, just you and I With nothing to hide Woah, just you and I It’s ok, sometimes you’ve got to walk away
10.
You my love You say your heart belongs to Someone else, my love How could I believe it When I see that look in your eye Knowing what you hide You say friend How could you expect me To accept the end How could I move forward When I see that look in your eye Knowing what you hide Someday, someway Someplace we’ll be together Someday, someway Someplace we’ll be together Oh I see that look in your eye I'm knowing what you hide Someday, someway Someplace we’ll be together Someday, someway Someplace we’ll be together

Noah's Ark 04:26
I wake up and realise East is West, left is right It’s upside down day or night Nothing’s the same as before A wheel of illusion Where lies are truth and war is peace I’m trying to unstitch this tapestry And find my way back to shore It seems so far away Maybe we’re more than we know Maybe there’s not far to go Outside a future awaits Could love be all that it takes To keep us climbing higher & higher Could you be faithful To yourself to your heart Could you become someone’s Noah’s Ark Will you be somebody’s shore It seems so far right now Maybe we’re more than we know Maybe there’s not far to go Outside a future awaits Could love be all that it takes To keep us climbing higher & higher Woah, I’m falling But i’m falling with you Woah, we’re falling But i’m falling for you So I’ll carry on down this road I’m on till it ends Let us carry on around this ride we’re on until the end, goodbye.

Peace 02:28
Ah-ha-ah I woke up today with the sun in the sky The birds that I heard on the rooftops The songs made me smile I woke up today with the eyes of a child See there I was thinking that we Could agree to be friends for a while Ah-ha-ah, everything will be alright Ah-ha-ah, yeah everything will be alright I woke up today to the sound of a drum From my head to my toes I could feel it Nowhere to run I woke up and stared where the red flowers rise And here I was thinking that we Could agree to try peace for a while Ah-ha-ah, everything will be alright Ah-ha-ah, yeah everything will be alright
