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
Track Name: The Disappeared
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
Track Name: Hurricane
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
Track Name: Satellite
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
Track Name: Everyday Holiday
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
Track Name: Escape
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
Track Name: Someday, Someplace
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
Track Name: Noah's Ark
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.
Track Name: Peace
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
