Track Name: Propaganda (Radio Edit)
I know this ground beneath me
Is slipping away
I hear the message you're preaching
I try to escape

Oh forgive me, if I'm not myself
Oh forgive me, if I don't want your help

From experts and preachers
From textbooks and teachers
It's all propaganda
From tabloids and talkshows,
From billboards to god knows
It's just propaganda

There's no time to count the civilian
There's work to be done.
For until these billions are trillions
Then war will go on.

Oh forgive me, if I deviate.
Oh forgive me, if I try to escape

The close up, the soundbite
The replay, the gunfight
It's all propaganda.
The tax cuts and think tanks
The loopholes, the world bank..
Oh take a look around ya
It's all propaganda

Oh forgive me if I deviate
Oh forgive me if I try to escape

Away from this propaganda of
Illusion, confusion, delusion, intrusion
It's all propaganda.
From New York to Beijing
If we lose then they win.
From Big Macs to weight loss
From junkies to Kate Moss
From catwalks to blue jeans
From sweatshops to Gucci
Oh take a look around ya It's all propaganda.
Track Name: She Wants To Be Loved
It’s not your fault the conversation run dry
Before you said hello, she'd made up her mind
That no-one was good enough
That no-one could could measure up
That no-one was trustworthy
Don't take it personally

So what she says, that nothing’s ever enough
I know, she just wants to be loved

It all goes back two years, three months and four days ago
She's early home and hears her man not alone
She walks in to see the show
The same pairs of chromosomes
Two bodies both X & Y right there before her eyes

So what she says, that nothing’s ever enough
I know, she just wants to be loved

She wants to be loved
She wants to be loved
She wants to be loved
She wants to be loved

So what she says, that nothing’s ever enough
I know, she’s afraid to be loved
I see through her disguise
I can see in her eyes
The protection she tries
To keep everyone outside
So she's hiding within
Until she earns how to win
This fight to thicken her skin

She just wants to be loved.
