Track Name: Damocles
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
Track Name: No Walls
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
Track Name: Musical Chairs
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
Track Name: Mailer
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
